Criticism to the Global War Against International Terrorism, (G-WAIT)
“Terrorism” is defined as the use of illegitimate force or the threats of illegitimate force to obtain political, financial, economic or social or any other gains.
Normally the first suspects of any act of terrorism are fanatical groups, organisations or individuals. But, other main perpetrators of terrorism are:
1- The government of the land;
2- Foreign rouge organisations;
And 3- Organised criminal gangs or individuals.
All these four suspect groups must be monitored and investigated thoroughly. No claim of responsibility must be taken as true or in its face value immediately.
The World of today is full of hatred and madness. This is due to greed, cruelty and ignorance. To stop this violence and counter-violence and to achieve peace and security are two different objectives. But this is not always the best way to create and develop a civilised and stable life since the madness of violence originates from disregard to humanity and justice.
The solution to the problems of terrorism is not only by counter-terrorism in the form of:
1- Military pre-emptive strikes; or by being tough,
2- Intrusive intelligence methods; or by being careful,
Or 3- Deceptive political negotiations; or by being clever.
The real answer to the problem is by improving and reforming the international world order and make it more:
1- Honestly fair;
2- Modestly prudent;
And 3- Considerately compassionate.
Liberalism, Democracy, Communism and Globalism are all responsible for the present grave World Order.
The current Global War Against International Terrorism is actually a war against:
1- Nationalists or pro-independence;
2- Anti-Globalists or Anti-expansionists;
And 3- Anti-globalists or Anti-international capitalists.
In fact it is a war about land and economic resources. It was never about religious, economic or political ideologies or clashes of cultures.
Historically, the use of illegitimate force and the threat of illegitimate force are not considered terrorism if they are committed by:
1- Liberation groups or freedom fighters (e.g. independence struggles);
2- Individuals and nations in self-defence (e.g. wars );
And 3- Legitimate international organisations (e.g. UN).
Normally, legitimate targets of violence include:
1- Illegitimate governments and organisations;
2- Occupying forces and administrations;
And 3- Any civilian and non-civilian colonists and unauthorised exploiters.
Illegitimate targets of violence includes:
1- Any lawful political opposition groups or individuals;
2- Any internationally or nationally approved forces and administrations
And 3- All civilians in their homelands.
The Real Objectives and the Actual Components of the Current Global War Against International Terrorism (G-WAIT) are:
The real objectives of the Global War Against International Terrorism, (G-WAIT), are:
1- Waging pre-emptive strikes against anti-Globalism and depicting it as a racist anti-Semitism.
2- Imposition of a global order of Trans-national Capitalism, Liberalism, Democracy, Communism, Globalisation and Insecurity.
3- Diverting the hostilities and animosities against Israel to hit the USA, Europe and other parts of the World.
4- Presenting Liberal Democracy as the only viable choice for the threatened and confused states and peoples and as the end of history.
5- Defilement of Nationalism, National Sovereignty, Nation-State and Independence.
6- Inventing animosities and distrusts between Moslems, Jews and Christians, and Justify them as clashes of cultures.
7- Justify regime-change and state-sponsored terrorism and mercenary activities by abusing the UN and international organisations.
8- Attacking and destroying the links between the ideologies, hostile rich economies and militant groups whom are targeting Globalism.
9- Providing financial, military and political support for Globalism to defend it and protect its global projects, like Liberal Democracy, Trans-national Capitalism, organised crime, immoralities and Communism.
G-WAIT is only another policy to involve the rest of the World in the conflict between Israel and the Arabs. Nobody should give any support or take side with either side of this evil conflict. Instead, the World should concentrate on the needs for human development and respect for fairness for international peace.
