Sarkozy's Fatal Foreign Policy
Here's an article by Catholic journalist Michel Garroté, that touches on some of the topics that have been discussed in the comment sections of my recent posts, namely the fate of Christians in the Middle East, and the treasonous policies of Nicolas Sarkozy:
Nicolas Sarkozy and Bernard-Henri Lévy are jointly responsible for the bloody chaos that reigns in Libya in 2011, knowing that Sarkozy had given his blessing urbi et orbi to Qadhafi in October 2007. By decreeing, in September 2011, the end of the secular Syrian dictator Bashar al Assad, whom he had nonetheless welcomed in great pomp on July 14, 2008, Sarkozy will bear, through his hollow words and his inconstancies, his part of the responsibility for the future fate (a tragic one) of the Christians of Syria. And, in the looming disaster in Syria, Sarkozy will also bear his part of the responsibility for the future fate (already tragic) of the Lebanese Christians.
Finally, in the looming disaster in Syria, Sarkozy will be partially responsible for the Islamist Syrian threat, a fundamentalist and theocratic threat, that will weigh heavily on the Israeli Jewish population, and which will necessarily be even worse than the current secular Syrian threat from the Alaouite dynasty.
Note: I believe the buck stops with Nicolas Sarkozy and he is wholly responsible. Lévy is powerful only because he was given power by Sarkozy. If the president cannot say no to a man who is seeking to harm the country, then Sarkozy is the traitor, Lévy merely the Iago who spins his web into which Sarkozy falls. Nicolas Sarkozy has never been qualified to be president of France. He has stated openly that the French people must mix their blood with other races, he has worked to appease Turkey and to force France into the E.U. He has courted every Muslim leader in the Middle East and showered them with contracts and promises to ease immigration restrictions. He has prevented his police force from harming dangerous criminals. He persists in his open immigration policies all the while admitting that multiculturalism has not worked.
Back to Michel Garroté who quotes extensively from a Syrian priest:
On the future Syrian disaster, the priest of Bab Sbah, in Homs, in Syria, declared on September 23:
"Ten days ago the salafists forced open the door of the ancient Saint Elian church in Homs. They thought the sacred utensils were made of gold, so they stole them. The Greek Orthodox bishop His Eminence Abou Zakhm had the courage to go to the Emir of Homs, Bilal Ken. He said: 'We are brothers and we have always lived together. Why did you take our sacred vessels? You say you don't need a police force, so are you going to defend us.' Bilal reassured the bishop about the intentions of the insurgents, but denied he ordered the robbery."
The priest: "The rebels had, in passing, emptied out the church's cash box. Then Bilal El Ken's henchmen kidnapped four Christian girls from a minibus traveling from Homs to Zeidal. One of them, Maya Semaan, was returned after four days, having been raped, according to the evidence. The army then intervened to place limits on the demands of the salafists. Bilal was killed on September 7, 2011 during the fighting and his headquarters were searched. The sacred vessels were found and returned to the Saint Elian church. The streets have been calmer these days. But we can still hear gunfire. Now we can go out to shop for necessities, but for two weeks we were confined to our homes."
The priest: "Homs had become a battleground. The insurgents have heavy arms that they use indiscriminately. With the RPG (rocket-propelled grenades) they can destroy army tanks. The façade of the bishop's residence is riddled with bullets and some windows are broken. Considering its location on a line of demarcation, the building should have been much more damaged. We have the army, advancing with extreme caution, to thank. However, the residents were not encouraged to stay there. The building now seems to be abandoned in a ravaged neighborhood that was once so peaceful. All of us, moderate Muslims (the great majority), Christians, Alaouites, Druzes, Ismaelites, and even Kurds, we all fear the coming of an Islamic State that will impose on us, as civil law, the religious laws of Islam."
Regarding the bloody chaos that reigns in Libya in 2011, Bishop Martinelli, Apostolic Vicar of Tripoli, in Libya, where the fighting goes on near sites that have remained in the hands of troops loyal to Qadhafi, declared on September 29:
"The situation in the hospitals is tragic because there are still many wounded and the staff cannot keep up with all the emergencies." (…) "The same is true of the wounded of Bani Walid, who have to be evacuated to other centers because there are no hospitals equipped to take them." (…) "The country needs help in the form of doctors, nurses and medicine. I am now launching an appeal everywhere not only for aid to be sent but also for the most seriously wounded to be hospitalized in Italy or elsewhere," concluded Bishop Martinelli.
Michel Garroté sums up his feelings:
As far as I'm concerned - and this is my closing statement - Nicolas Sarkozy, Bernard-Henri Lévy and Alain Juppé are and will remain equally responsible for the lethal threats that will weigh, even more heavily than in the past, on the Christians of Libya, Syria and Lebanon, as well as on the Israeli Jewish population. One could even wonder if Sarkozy, BHL and Juppé are in the service of the OCI (Organization of the Islamic Conference), of the salafists and of the Muslim Brotherhood. I have to admit that between imbecility and collaboration, I cannot tell which of these two explanations motivates our geo-strategical clowns. Yes, I know, some will say: both: both of them at the same time, imbecility and collaboration.
I would just add to imbecility and collaboration an impenetrable wall of stubbornness, a refusal to question the ideology of the globalists/multiculturalists who have the most extremely limited view of "democracy" that it is possible to imagine, a will to break, rather than bend to reality. I think too that these men have delusions of grandeur, delusions of being "movers and shakers" in a great world-wide sloughing off of the old and ringing in of the new. For them it's like New Year's Eve, and tomorrow the world will be better. They are turning their "dreams into reality" as the slogan from 1968 said. They want to be rewarded for their efforts. And indeed they shall, but it won't be in this world. Garroté's title for his article is "War Crimes in the Name of Human Rights", which says it all.
On a side note, Michel Garroté spoke of the Israeli "Jewish" population. There is, as you may know, an Israeli Arab population of two million. Nicolas Sarkozy is aware of this as a short entry from right-wing Israeli blog Samson Blinded shows:
Words of truth from Sarkozy
A Jewish organization slammed French president for saying that Israel with her two million Arabs cannot be called a Jewish state, and so Netanyahu is wrong to demand that from Palestinians.
Now, what’s wrong with his opinion? Rabbi Kahane and ourselves kept saying that for years. Only the Israeli government fails to acknowledge that commonsense fact.
The irony is too funny. If, for Nicolas Sarkozy, Israel is not a Jewish State because of its two million Arabs, then what about France??? Soon, very soon, Nicolas Sarkozy will not be able to speak of the French State. These "words of truth" are a rare moment of lucidity for the usually clueless Sarkozy.
