The Arab world is famous for its wild conspiracy theories, especially when they concern Israel and its presumed sinister all-pervading influence over world affairs.
This last week brought us a bunch of conspiracy theories all in one batch.
First we heard from the execrable British MP George Galloway who blatantly claimed that it was Israel that had supplied Al Qaeda with the chemical weapons used to kill civilians in Syria:
Anti-Israel British Member of Parliament (MP) George Galloway accused Israel of giving Al-Qaeda terrorists in Syria chemical weapons in a recent interview with Iranian Press TV.
“If there has been use of chemical weapons, it was Al-Qaeda,” Galloway said. “Who gave al-Qaida chemical weapons? Here’s my theory: Israel gave them the chemical weapons.”
Trending Central reports that he then proceeded to lie about his lie:
In today’s debate on the intervention in Syria in the British House of Commons, George Galloway MP has been caught outrightly lying to the House following a denial of comments he made on the state-funded Iranian Press TV channel.
Last week, Galloway was heard to blame the State of Israel for supplying Al Qaeda with chemical weapons. When challenged on the matter by Conservative MP Matthew Offord, Galloway replied, “I said no such thing”.
Watch the video below and share it on social media to alert people to Galloway’s outright lies to the House of Commons.
George Galloway MP claimed that he “said no such thing” when asked about his Press TV comments about Israel supplying chemical weapons to the Syria Al-Qaeda affiliated rebels. Galloway forgets that the internet has all his bluster archived, and as this video shows, he LIED to the British Parliament when he claimed he never made the comments on the Iranian State TV channel Press TV.
The man ought to lose his parliamentary immunity as well as his actual seat in Parliament. Follow the links in Trending Central’s article to lodge a complaint about his behaviour.
Conspiracy theory no. 2 comes from Our Peace Partners ™ the Palestinian Authority who claim that it is Israel and the US who are behind the civil war in Syria:
“Events of mass killings do not upset [America]
because they themselves have used killing as a means
and a strategy to attain global domination”
“There is nothing in international relations more offensive or painful than the American invasion and the Americans’ barbaric behavior… The Americans knew that Assad was destroying Syria and this is what they had hoped for, so they worked to have the massacres and destruction continue”
“After the destruction of Iraq and the actions to divide it,
this attempt [by the US] is now repeating itself in Syria”
“Syria is being exhausted, so its characteristics
as a state disappear, until there is an appropriate political party, a friend and outgrowth of the Americans,
to take over the government”
“There is an American-Israeli trend to re-divide the Arab people’s nations according to ethnic groups, religion and ethnicity”
“… the lie about Al-Qaeda and the Sept. 11 events asserted that Muslim terrorists committed it, and that it was not an internal American action”
Since the beginning of what is called the ‘Arab Spring’, the official Palestinian Authority daily has been publishing opinion pieces accusing the US and Israel of being behind the civil wars in the Middle East in order to divide and weaken Arab states and strengthen American power. The deaths in the Arab world, including those in Syria following the chemical attack, are presented as actions in line with US policy. The official PA daily wrote today:
“Events of mass killings do not upset [America] because they themselves have used killing as a means and a strategy to attain global domination… This is a tyranny and an effort whose goal is to divide every country… Americans aspire to topple the nation states that appeared in the Arab world after WWII.”
The threatened US airstrike is likewise being presented as a continuation of the American policy whose goal is, according to the PA daily, “to re-divide the Arab people’s nations according to ethnic groups, religion and ethnicity…” Worse yet, the US is being presented by the PA daily as a bloodthirsty imperialist country seeking the death of Arab civilians: “There is nothing in international relations more offensive or painful than the American invasion and the Americans’ barbaric behavior… The Americans knew that Assad was destroying Syria and this is what they had hoped for, so they worked to have the massacres and destruction continue.”
The belief is an all-powerful and malevolent America and Israel influencing everything in the Middle East is a major cause for the lack of progress in peace-making amongst the Arab nations themselves and between them and the Israelis. This Arabian Nights mode of thinking demonstrates the Arab nations’ victim culture and their inability to take responsibility for themselves. Until this psychological handicap is overcome there never will be progress in peace-making.
To finish on a lighter note, the final conspiracy theory for today comes from that fail-safe source, the Zionist Spy Zoo ™. The hapless spy that was caught by a brave Egyptian is no less than a Zionist Duck:
Egyptian police have arrested a duck that they fear was sent by Israel as a spy, Egypt’s Al-Ahram news agency reports.
The bird was spotted by a fisherman in the Nile River, in the Qena region, as it swam with other birds. The fisherman noticed that the bird had a device attached to its feathers, which he feared could be used to gather information.
A security official told Al-Ahram that experts are examining the device to see if it could have been used to gather intelligence.
The Cairo-based paper El-Fagr expressed concern that the bird may have been sent by Israel, “which previously spied on Saudi Arabia, Turkey and neighboring countries using trained birds of prey.”
Egypt’s police put a stork under arrest late Friday as a device was found attached to its feathers, fueling accusations that it might have been used for espionage, Al-Ahram Arabic-language news website reported.
Arutz Sheva shamefully aids the enemy by disclosing the identities of our other spies:
Other bizarre animal-related accusations have included an Egyptian official’s complaint that the Mossad released attack sharks into Egyptian waters, and Palestinian Authority claims regarding attack boars and anti-Arab rats.
I don’t know what the world is coming to when you can’t even rely on Israeli wildlife any more.
