Run for your life …. Osama Bin Laden rises from the depths…..he’s Ozombie

They thought they had “deaded” him by dumping him at sea in a Muslamic burial, but little did they know that Osama Bin Laden would come back to haunt them again, be afraid, be very afraid, it’s Ozombie!

It’s been a year since the bogey man was deaded and in the time since, America and her minions have tried to select many a heir apparent to fill those shoes of the bad guy.

Whether it’s the Haqqani network or some other nameless group that’s given the spotlight, America was founded on and has always needed “The Other” to maintain it’s hegemony.

Recent talk of more Al-Qaeda attacks to mark Bin Ladens death anniversary or the omnipresent threat posed by a weakened faction have been cranked up in the last month.

President Obama’s campaign is using the Bin Laden factor to argue Mitt Romney would not have launched the raid to kill Osama bin Laden last year. The argument of course is being made to coincide with the one-year anniversary of bin Laden’s death.

The so called founding fathers of America, a bunch of extremist fanatics believed it was their “Manifest Destiny” to wipe out every single last indigenous person on the land they themselves had recently washed up upon, because they were fulfilling their religious covenant, to slay the heathen devil to claim what was their god given right.

In more recent years it was the almost sixty year long cold war threat from the Communists and now we’re eleven years into the open war against Islam.

What may seem to you as a bit of a joke by the American media machine, is in fact a calculated use of “soft power”.

The dominating themes are as old as Hollywood: America’s divine right to invade other societies, steal their history and occupy our memory, with directors and writers behaving like pimps for a world-view devoted to control and destruction.

We all grew up on the movie myth of the Wild West, which was harmless enough unless you happened to be a Native American. The formula is unchanged. Self-regarding distortions present the nobility of the American colonial aggressor as a cover for massacre.

America has lived by the idiom of “Be afraid, be very afraid”, it is the American condition. Whether it’s the Ozombie or not, America promote fear, anxiety and insecurity, to it’s citizens, to be surrounded by potential harm, enemies and evil intent.

The wolf is always at the door and as long as you can keep the people in an endless state of fear, you will keep them as unquestioning supporters of your wars of blood and treasure.

So be afraid and watch over your shoulder, the Ozombie will eventually catch you.

Juice Media presents “RAP NEWS 8: Osamacide”

Juice Media drop their latest Rap News bulletin and ask if Osama Bin Laden was in fact clubbed to death by seals and whether he was armed with a “muslamic ray gun”.

It’s the end of an era.

The decade which opened with a ferocious attack in the United States of America, closes with the announcement of the death of its greatest and most conveniently disney-like villain, Usama Bin Laden.

In a decade which has been dominated by the Empire Strikes Back, our affable and dextrous host Robert Foster invites us to scrutinise the events shrouding the killing of this twentyfirst-century Goldstein. Joining him in this May retrospective are Rap News regulars, General Baxter, the Pentagon’s most effusive spokesperson, attempting uncharacteristically to stay ‘on message’, and his counterpart from the world of alternative academia, the conspiracy industry’s favourite son, Terrence Moonseed.

What actually happened in Abbotabad?

Do the public have a right to see evidence of this event?

What is Terrence wearing on his head?

Was justice really served?

What next?

History is happening.

Does Al Qaeda Really Exist? – Revisiting Adam Curtis’s Power of Nightmares

Al Qaeda related news has been the number one media scare story for more than a decade. In the face of much more tangible threats in the past – like the IRA, the Soviet Union and even Nazi Germany – British governments did not encourage the people to behave like hedgehogs.

So why roll up into a ball now in the face of what is a serious but in no way an overwhelming threat to our nation and our freedoms?

The Akh has been revisiting the brilliant documentary series by Adam Curtis, titled “The Power of Nightmares”, from which the most telling clip above is taken from. What that documentary stated was not that there was no threat, but rather the nightmare vision of a uniquely powerful hidden organisation waiting to strike our societies is an illusion, in effect, a way of creating the terror threat.

The question the series tried to answer was why contemporary politicians and other elites, like the media, want you to feel frightened – to behave and feel like a hedgehog trapped on a motorway – when the reality and the scale of the threat is actually very different.

In December 2004, Lord Hoffman, standing in the House of Lords made the following speech:

“The real threat to the life of the nation, in the sense of a people living in accordance with its traditional laws and political values, comes not from terrorism but from laws such as these”

This can be found on hansard’s records in paragraphs 94-97

Like Lord Hoffman I am optimistic, I’m sure we will survive not only “al Qaeda” but also the politics of fear.

Of course when the fear goes and people see just how much the threats have been exaggerated then there will be a further loss of trust in politicians and their authority.

Yet there are those who say the Al Qaeda group doesn’t exist at all, that they’re an invention of the Government designed to keep the population frightened, and to ensure that the pliant masses accept higher military spending.

But where’s the evidence to support their claims?

Shortly before his untimely death, former British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook told the House of Commons that “Al Qaeda” is not really a terrorist group but a database of international mujaheddin and arms smugglers used by the CIA and Saudis to funnel guerrillas, arms, and money into Soviet-occupied Afghanistan.

Terror Expert Jason Burke, author of Al Qaeda, one of the most quoted books on the subject, is also in the video excerpt above (1.08 in) he states;

“The terrorist group al-Qaeda in fact does not exist. It was made up in January of 2001 in order to prosecute Osama bin Laden in his absence. In order to prosecute bin Laden there had to be an organization like the Mafia for which he was a part of. Under the law if such an organization exists then the head of the organization can be prosecuted under the law. So in order to bring the prosecution they made up the organization and called it al-Qaeda. But the organization is fiction. It doesn’t exist. It’s all a huge fraud.”

and then adds;

“The idea which is critical to the FBI¹s prosecution that bin Laden ran a coherent organisation with operatives and cells all around the world of which you could be a member is a myth. There is no Al Qaeda organisation. There is no international network with a leader, with cadres who will unquestioningly obey orders, with tentacles that stretch out to sleeper cells in America, in Africa, in Europe. That idea of a coherent, structured terrorist network with an organised capability simply does not exist.”

Marion E. (Spike) Bowman was serving as the Deputy General Counsel at the FBI and he to said something very similar to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on July 31, 2002:

“…al Qaeda is far less a large organization than a facilitator, sometimes orchestrator, of Islamic militants around the globe. These militants are linked by ideas and goals, not by organizational structure. The intent is establishment of a state, or states ruled by Islamic law and free of western influence. Bin Laden’s contribution to the Islamic jihad is a creature of the modern world. He has spawned a global network of individuals with common, radical ideas, kept alive through modern communications and sustained through forged documents and money laundering activities on a global scale.”

Then serving as the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Ian Blair stated:

“Al Qaeda is not an organization. Al Qaeda is a way of working … but this has the hallmark of that approach. Al Qaeda clearly has the ability to provide training … to provide expertise … and I think that is what has occurred here”

At the very same time, the Neo Conservative ideology spoused by Leo Strauss was spreading their ideas and their myth of America as a revolutionary force that can spread democracy and freedom around the world, but infact were a convenient disguise for a much more ruthless and anti-democratic exploitation of the world.

“We are not hostile to the United States. We are against the system, which makes other nations slaves of the United States, or forces them to mortgage their political and economic freedom. They needed an enemy. So, they first started propaganda against Usamah and Taleban and then this incident happened. You see, the Bush administration approved a budget of 40bn dollars. Where will this huge amount go? It will be provided to the same agencies, which need huge funds and want to exert their importance.”

Osama bin Laden’s interview with Ummat, a Pakistani daily, published in Karachi on September 28, 2001. It was translated into English by the BBC World Monitoring Service and made public on September 29, 2001.

Many of us believe that business and corporate interests shape the world and that all ideas and political ideology are just froth on the surface that disguise the real, hidden forces underneath.

The neoconservatives and the Islamists believe the complete opposite – that ideas can fundamentally change the world. In the neoconservatives’ own words: “Ideas do have consequences.”

I don’t believe either of these positions. I think the reality is far more complex – that ideas do have widespread effects but not in the way those who developed them necessarily intended. They are taken up, used and distorted by many other forces which include business and corporate interests.

There is a synergy, a fit, between the neoconservatives’ particular individualistic version of democracy and the neo-liberal economic policies that suit American business interests, that is at the detriment to the rest of the Muslim world.

The Legacy of Osama Bin Laden & The False Charges of Conspiracy Theory

What if I told you about a conspiracy that involves a group of people who are working on making a weapon never before known to mankind?

This thing will change the face of war forever and so anyone who comes into the knowledge of this process is either: absorbed into the project, assassinated or imprisoned.

The mixture of science and military technology is at work night and day until these people secretly achieve their sinister goal. They build a weapon that can kill hundreds of thousands, maybe millions, of people in one shot. These people conspire to then use that weapon against a sworn enemy of their country, whom they happen to be at war with.

The sceptics are scoffing at me and all rolling their eyes right now, but what if I told you that this weapon really existed, and that this process was real and that on August 6th 1945 America used this weapon… on Japan, producing its desired results.

Wouldn’t that be a conspiracy?

The Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats met behind closed doors to thrash out how they would rule Britain after the last general election.

That is a conspiracy.

There are companies that meet everyday to decide which chemicals are the cheapest to put in their products and how to alter the law to make them sellable.

That is a conspiracy.

Big industry lobby politicans behind closed doors for tax breaks while the Government cut social services.

That is a conspiracy.

There are governments who will use men like Bin Laden all the time as a proxy against their opponents.

That is also a conspiracy, and since we are one of those governments who used such a man, we are the conspiracy.

In a world that has been flooded by news, there is usually nothing that rises far above the smouldering lava of sensation—that which consumes all truth and absorbs all lies mixing them into a fiery lake or stew of bubbling nonsense. So much so, that to discover glanced over facts, to question people of importance within government or the machine itself leads to the branding of one as a “conspiracy theorist.”

Not all people who doubt the official version of the story are raving lunatics, though. Some have an honest distrust of their own government.

This is the legacy left behind by Osama Bin Laden, why is it that if anyone questions the fast unravelling narrative off the official story are they then branded conspiracy theorists?

This is based on an excellent piece titled “The Legacy of Bin Laden” by activist and social commentator Immortal Technique, The Akh recommends you read it.

Anjem Choudary, Muslims Against Crusades & Osama Bin Ladens Funeral

Anjem Choudary and his group  Hizb ut Tahrir, Al Muhajiroun, oh right…Muslims Against Crusades decided to hold a symbolic funeral for Osama Bin Laden outside the US embassy on Friday.

Predictably, the dailyfail reported on Anjum Choudry and his mob going to town:

This just in from London-istan: Violent clashes outside U.S. Embassy after hundreds of UK Muslims stage mock funeral for ‘murdered’ Bin Laden

Now a whiles back, The Akh  put to paper the following observation that Anjem Choudry, MI5 & Far Right need each other to further their own interests.

Yesterday this got picked up by Alex Jones prison planet website, (is that a good thing?):

“A child of three could see through this scam. Muslims brainwashed by extremist preachers on the MI5 payroll – people like Anjem Choudry and Abu Hamza, are told to riot in London and threaten retailiation attacks for the death of Bin Laden.

This not only reinforces the Bin Laden fable, but it also allows the media to whip up anti-Arab sentiment amongst British and American citizens by bombarding them with images of screaming Muslim extremists.

Look at these savages – they want to impose Sharia law, they want to build mosques at ground zero! This must mean that the bombing of Libya and Iran is the right thing to do! Let’s just not mention the fact that the US and UK military are now actively supporting Al-Qaeda in Libya and Iran in an effort to overthrow Gaddafi and Ahmadinejad.

Sure, there are real Muslim extremists who are ignorant of the fact that Bin Laden was a loyal CIA asset, but most of this is being provocateured for mass public consumption by the usual suspects.”

And ever since, The Akh’s original post has been replicated here, here and here.

Even the masses are beginning to see through the lies…they say the truth will out…Haqq overcomes Baatil…Insh’Allah we’re getting there.

For years The Akh has harboured suspicions that Anjem Choudry and his mentor OBM (Omar Bakri Muhammed) are agent provocateurs that always discredit and harm the greater body of Muslims by provoking their own members to commit wrong or rash actions. As ever, in the picture above, Anjem Choudry is lying deep behind the front lines, whilst no doubt hyping up the youngsters in front of him.

Osama Bin Laden Tried in Court In absentia Trial – Guilty or Not Guilty?

The Dutch television show “Devil’s Advocate”, tried Usama Bin Laden in front of a jury, with Dutch Master of Law, Gerard Spong defending. Amongst the prosecutions star witnesses were American correspondent Charles Groenhuijsen and terrorism expert Glenn Schoen.

Long before The Akh started up Hotter Than A Pile Of Curry, he would write and submit articles to a whole host of outlets, this particular one was picked up by the Muslim Public Affairs Committee back in April 2009.

I read an article on the Guardian’s CiF section which asked the question “What if Bin Laden had stood trial?” The Akh shook his head and thought Shiiii he’d covered this years ago – of course the expert white man media rules, but read on and perhaps you’ll understand why they had to “kill” of Bin Laden rather then let him face trial…if you believe he wasn’t already dead years ago;

The inabsentia trial of the most wanted man on this Earth has recently concluded, with a jury finding Usama Bin Laden NOT GUILTY of masterminding, planning, financing and heading the terrorist attacks of September 11th 2001.

The jury were instructed to decide if the acts of terror committed on 9/11 can be rightly attributed to Usama Bin Laden.

The three indictments read out in court were:

Indictment 1 – Usama Bin Laden gave the order for the attacks of September 11 2001.

Indictment 2 – Usama Bin Laden is the leader of Al-Qaeda.

Indictment 3 – Usama Bin Laden is a terrorist.

The Verdicts?

On the first indictment, the jury decided that too little hard, indisputable evidence had been produced to show that Usama Bin Laden was responsible for the September 11 attacks. NOT GUILTY

On the second indictment, the jury considered it a fact that Al-Qaeda exists, but whether Usama Bin Laden is the undisputed leader of the organisation is something the jury has doubts over. NOT GUILTY.

On the third indictment, the jury almost unanimously decided that Usama Bin Laden to be a terrorist. GUILTY.

Spong was able to convince the jury that bin Laden’s connection to Sept. 11 was a product of “Western propaganda.” The jury also ruled there was insufficient evidence to prove bin Laden was the real head of terrorist network al-Qaida. However, the jury did rule that bin Laden is a “terrorist who has misused Islam.”

However, the jury did rule that bin Laden is a “terrorist who has misused Islam.”

Although this is only a television programme, it caused somewhat of an uproar when it was aired earlier this month in the Netherlands. I remember hearing Colin Powell saying “in the near future we will be able to put out a document that will describe quite clearly the evidence that we have linking Bin Laden to this attack.”

This evidence was never produced.

In a court of law, it falls onto the accusing party to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the accused is guilty. Yet the only result we have seen was not only the war in Afghanistan, but also under a cloud of lies, the war in Iraq.

Muslims are often accused of having conspiracy theories, but there wasn’t a single Muslim in the jury that tried Bin Laden on Devil’s Advocate.

The truth about what happened on September 11 2001, is not in the public domain.

Perhaps one day all will become clear, but I don’t think we will like what we find out.

I will be writing one final piece on this subject tomorrow Insh’Allah, looking at the legacy left by Osama Bin Laden.
