The Jehadees are Coming!!

    General Mirza Aslam Beg   
    Former Chief of Army Staff

    The ‘Unholy Alliance’ of the West, launched the ‘Crusade’ against Gaddafi in support of the rebels, but is having cold feet now, realising that, the Jehadees from the neighbouring countries are entering Libya, in support of Gaddafi. Not only the West, but Gaddafi himself is nervous, which explains the dilemma that, the Jehadees will soon gain power and influence in Libya.

    The West has geo-strategic interests in the Mediterranean Rim Countries and Africa. Libya occupies an important position. With the establishment of the ‘AFRICOM, West’s objective is to establish hegemony over the region. Out of twenty countries of the Mediterranean Rim land, only Libya, Lebanon and Syria are not allied to NATO, and so are Somalia, Eritrea, Zimbabwe and Ivory Coast, from fifty African countries. Zimbabwe is the exception, while Somalia, Eritrea and Ivory Coast, are facing revolt. The so called “repressive regimes”, Sudan, Syria and Libya, the weakest has been invaded. The 5th American fleet is located in Bahrain, where the revolt is being suppressed by the Saudis and GCC armed forces. Thus morality has been sacrificed by crushing the rebels in Bahrain, while the Libyan rebels are being whole heartedly patronised.

    As soon as the ‘No Fly Zone’ was established over Libya, the SAS men, Marines and CIA operatives from USA, UK and France numbering over 1500, landed to supply arms and ammunition and provide command & communication support to the rebels. An amount of US$ 1.1 billion, out of the seized assets of Gaddafi, was promptly released to support the war. Libya is important because of large oil and gas deposits and huge fresh water deposits, called Nubian Sandstone Water, estimated at 200xyears of flow of the Nile River. The French cartel, which controls 40% of global water market has deep interest in this water.

    The Jehadees. At the very beginning of the war on Libya, what I wrote in my article, titled “Obama’s Call for Jehad Into Libya” is coming true: “The worst that will happen is that, very soon the Jehadees from Iraq, Afghanistan and the neighbouring countries, particularly the Takfeeris from Iraq will enter Libya to liberate the Muslim land, as it happened in Afghanistan in 2001. The rebels and the jehadees are joining Gaddafi’s forces against the West. The powerful Salafi leader, Abu Masaab al-Wadood, has joined the Jehad against the ‘Crusaders’ and is getting arms and ammunition from Gaddafi. In fact, Libya is another Afghanistan in the making,” because this conflict doesn’t seem to be coming to an end soon. The West has rejected the African Union agreed proposal for seize fire and reforms. West wants Gaddafi out, which is not likely.

    The situation is frightening both, for the West as well as Gaddafi, who will not be able to stand-up to the jehadees, once they gain power and influence. In fact, West is supporting Al-Qaeda Magrab (AQM) in the same manner, they supported Mujahideen in Afghanistan 1980-88. The Jehadees are coming as they did, when Iraq was occupied by USA in 2003. An incident, narrated to me by my journalist friend in Karachi in 2003, explain the phenomenon: “It was about two months after the occupation of Iraq, that while traveling in a taxi, the driver told me that he was working in Saudi Arabia, I asked him, how was life in Saudi Arabia? He said, he was having a roaring time there, because every evening he would pick-up the jehadees in his taxis and show them the way into Iraq. I asked him who are they and who is supporting them? He said “name any country, they are coming on their own, and no one supports them.” I said, “God help the United States.” And now in Libya, “God help the West, and Gaddafi”, who will be facing the jehadees, after the air war dust settles down.

    Gaddafi is threatened by the Jehadees upsurge in Libya. Himself a ‘moderate Muslim’, he follows the philosophy of his ‘Green-book’. If he wins, he would stand to loose, both, his regime and his philosophy of moderate Islam. Having smelled the threat, he sent his foreign minister, abroad “for medical treatment, under the pretext of abdication.”, with the message to the West, that before it was too late, they better readjust their priorities. He is also ready to cooperate as he wrote to Obama saying “You are our son, who has enough courage to annul a wrong.”

    It always pays, to be honest and straight forward, and that is where the West has gone wrong. When nations like Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine and Kashmir fight for their freedom, their struggle is dubbed as terrorism. Al-Qaeda is the name of the terror, considered responsible for the 9/11 disaster threatening the homeland security of USA. They see Al-Qaeda behind every bush and with every movement for freedom. That is the dichotomy which has blurred their vision. They have been chasing shadows in Iraq & Afghanistan and have lost the asymmetric war there. And now in Libya, they are fighting a war, which was lost, before it was joined.

    Democracy is promoted as the utopia for the empowerment of the people but the same is not acceptable for Iran, Iraq, Lebanon or Ghaza, even if they get elected through fair means of the ballot, because they are Islamists. On the other hand, the model democracies in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Bahrain, Yemen and Qatar are being patronized. This kind of duality is the painful realization of the Muslim World.

    Swept by strong passion for change, the Arab World and the Muslim countries, see the decline of the most powerful nations of the world during the last thirty years – a symptomatic phenomenon, similar to post World War II decline of the colonial and imperial powers, which caused the surge for freedom of many countries. Neo-imperialism has failed in the first attempt to dominate the Asian Muslim region 1990-2010. It will fail again in dominating the Afro-Mediterranean region now. The world has changed, because the oppressed of the world desire change, which has been correctly understood only by the Chinese, who provide the living example of a true initiative for ‘Peace, Cooperation and Engagement.’ We as Pakistanis enjoy the best of relations with China, despite having different ideologies, different political culture and traditions. Chinese never pull strings, never interfere in our internal matters. They only help us to be self-reliant, self-respecting and strong. That is the recipe for change, which Obama promised.

    Gen. Aslam Baig has drawn parallel to Afghanistan in this case but looks like he did not take into account the smallness of the Libyan population and the huge size of the country, the limited population centers and most people living only on the coastal strip.No doubt, the people are tribal yet they are very homogeneous, it is almost impossible for a man from Sudan or Chad to hide among the neighbouring people of Kufra or a person from Algeria to mix with the people of Ghat in the western Libya, so much so that even Tunisians who live and work with the population at all levels and locations are distinguished by the people.The General has mentioned of the Green Book which I am sure he has never seen the absurd scripture. Gadafi could have helped his people really in great ways had he stayed the course and not indulged in making the country a big prison. Keeping a phone in that country in eighties was like keeping a cannon in any other country. No citizen could comment on any thing in presence of other except ” Mush Arif” , do not know.
    It is easy to blame the enemies but no finger is ever raised on the misrule by the very guardians of faithfuls, who do not pay heeds to the local s and want to hold the country hostage for them and their sons. did Gadafi not know that he was seated on immense wealth and enemy was looking for an opportunity, why did he not evolved a system where every one could be party to this National wealth.

    Gen Aslam beg has raised some valid points,but he must realize that these Jihadies are the babies of ZIA,ASlam beg,Akhtar Rehman & Gen Hamid gul.
    Now is the TIME to Give Solutions and take the field , to do practical steps to force the AAZ/Kiani Govt to do damage control before it is too late & further Balkanization of our country takes place.

    The hint of coming Storm was provided by Jeffery Goldberg in an article “AFTER IRAQ – How would the Middle East Look!”, published in ATLANTIC MONTHLY magazine, January 2008 [in other fragmentation of the Muslim World] including Pakistan. A google search using key words [AFTER IRAQ, Jeffery Goldberg, Article in ATLANTIC Monthly Januarry 2008] will provide access to this article (5 or six pages with colored maps including one posted on the cover. Main source behind this EVIL exercise is Zionistan, where the Evil folks want constant CHAOS in the Muslim World to carry on their agenda in Palestine, by destroying Muslim resources at the same time. Youseff Ebrahim, now with Council of Foreign Relations (but previously with New York Times) wrote a brief article in New York Times after the Gulf War or “Operation Desert Storm,” telling that Foreign Evil Forces caused a financial loss of $650 Billion to the Arabs. Prior to this the same folks robbed the BCCI by nicknaming it Bank of Crooks & Criminals International (yes, that is correct), and the same folks robbed Iran, Indonesia, and many other Muslim countries using Media (like New York Times, correspondents as intelligence scounts, and people who concoct lies].

    Gen Baig’s analysis is almost 100% correct; west is bent upon fragmenting the muslim states and plan to re draw the map of the ME; Pakistan is also in their sight
    Libya is and has been a welfare state and does not owe money to any international lenders; It has free education and health and no beggars…………….many more benefits are available to the common man
    This is the tragedy of the muslim ummah that we are our own worst enemy; In Spain we were not defeated by the christians but we fought amongst ourselevs and sought christian help to destroy other muslims……….same happened in Crusade until Salahuddin Ayubi first unified the various muslim states by force & then drove out the invaders……
    We are seeing the repeat of Spain in our times; just look at the attitude of the arab states in the present conflict in libya….is it not a re run of OUR doom???????????????
    They have plans even to create a Vatican type Mecca-Medina state and bifurcate even the Saudi Arabia !!
    Beware…Gen Aslam is not all that wrong …….
    Let us wake up and take notice

    Thanks – where is article source?

    • pakpotpourri2  On April 14, 2011 at 11:26 pm

      Gen Beg’s articles are published in THE NATION. However, these are forwarded to me directly by the author.

    The General is on to something. The problem with the Jehadees of Salafi types is their ancient and out of date outlook towards the modern World. Even if they win in any country they begin to lose the confidence of common people.

    The only Islamic parties capable of winning modern race are in Turkey and Malaysia. In both the Islamic parties are controlled by highly educated people who are well versed in modern technology. The days of political hegemony or Imperialism are over.

    The current era is stacked up in economic well being and modern technological achievements. Any country that ignores economy is bound become a International beggar.

    He missed algeria completely
    And rebels were being prepared for war since 8 months according to rebel sources in the united states its an another tomkins bay.
    The west isnt looking for out right victories they r looking for weak fractured nations with weak controlable governments and they r succeeding in tht.

    I do not wish to comment about general beg.he should ask him self what he was doing in so many other matters.

    are you on linkedin?

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    • pakpotpourri2  On April 26, 2011 at 1:20 am

      Thank you for the input. If you notice the content, this is serious material for serious readers. We have tried to follow the international pattern of blogging . This is focused on material, and yes, supporting pictures but the emphasis firmly remains on the former.
      Best Regards
