Open Letter to Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States of America

Open Letter to Barack Hussein Obama, President of the United States of America

by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad: Former Prime Minister of Malaysia

Dear Mr. President,

I did not vote for you in the Presidential Election because I am Malaysian.
But I consider myself one of your constituents because what you do or say will affect me and my country as well.

I welcome your promise for change. Certainly your c
ountry, the United States of America needs a lot of changes.

That is because America and Americans have become the most hated people in the world. Even Europeans dislike your arrogance. Yet you were once admired and liked because you freed a lot of countries from conquest and subjugation.

It is the custom on New Year’s day for people to make resolutions. You must have listed your good resolutions already. But may I politely suggest that you also resolve to do the following in pursuit of Change.

1) Stop killing people. The United States is too fond of killing people in order to achieve its objectives. You call it war, but today’s wars are not about professional soldiers fighting and killing each other. It is about killing people, ordinary innocent people by the hundreds of thousands. Whole countries will be devastated.
War is primitive, the cavemen’s way of dealing with a problem. Stop your arms build up and your planning for future wars.

2) Stop indiscriminate support of Israeli killers with your money and your weapons. The planes and the bombs killing the people of Gaza are from you. 

3) Stop applying sanctions against countries which cannot do the same against you.
In Iraq your sanctions killed 500,000 children through depriving them of medicine and food. Others were born deformed.

What have you achieved with this cruelty? Nothing except the hatred of the victims and right-thinking people.
4) Stop your scientists and researchers from inventing new and more diabolical weapons to kill more people more efficiently.

5) Stop your arms manufacturers from producing them. Stop your sales of arms to the world. It is blood money that you earn. It is un-Christian.

6) Stop trying to democratize all the countries of the world. Democracy may work for the United States but it does not always work for other countries.
Don’t kill people because they are not democratic. Your crusade to democratize countries has killed more people than the authoritarian Governments which you overthrew. And you have not succeeded anyway.

7) Stop the casinos which you call financial institutions. Stop hedge funds, derivatives and currency trading. Stop banks from lending non-existent money by the billions.
Regulate and supervise your banks. Jail the miscreants who made profits from abusing the system.

8) Sign the Kyoto Protocol and other international agreements.

9) Show respect for the United Nations.

I have many other resolutions for change which I think you should consider and undertake.
But I think you have enough on your plate for this 2012th year of the Christian Era.
If you can do only a few of what I suggest, you will be remembered by the world as a great leader. Then the United States will again be the most admired nation. Your embassies will be able to take down the high fences and razor-wire coils that surround them.
May I wish you a Happy New Year and a great Presidency.

Yours Sincerely,

Dr. Mahathir bin Mohamad
(Former Prime Minister of Malaysia)

     The Zionist Terrorists Operation “Pillar of Atrocities” and “Pillars of Genocides” severely damage agricultural sector and important infrastructures in Palestine especially Gaza strip and murder hundreds of  Palestinian people including old men, women, children and babies.

    The Almighty God Allah SWT says about the Jews (Zionists) in Al Qur’an:

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
لَتَجِدَنَّ أَشَدَّ النَّاسِ عَدَاوَةً لِّلَّذِيْنَ ءَامَنُوْا الْيَهُوْدَ وَالّذِيْنَ أَشْرَكُوْا وَلَتَجِدَنَّ أَقْرَبَهُمْ مَوَدَّةً لِّلَّذِيْنَ ءَامَنُوْا الَّذِيْنَ قَالُوْا إِنَّا نَصَرَى ذَلِكَ بِأَنَّ مِنْهُمْ قِسِّيْسِيْنَ وَرُهْبَانًا وَإِنَّهُمْ لاَ يَسْتَكْبِرُوْنَ/  الْمَائِدَة :82.
     In the Name of Allah, the beneficent, the merciful. Strongest among men in enmity to the Believers wilt thou find the Jews and Pagans; and nearest among them in love to the Believers wilt thou find those who say, "We are Christians": because amongst these are men devoted to learning and men who have renounced the world, and they are  not arrogant.  - (Al Qur’an, Al Maidah, Verse 82)

     Allah SWT describes the Jews enmity to the believers in many verses in Al Qur’an among others in Al Imran, verse 118:

وَدُّوْا مَا عَنِتُّمْ قَدْ بَدَتِ الْبَغْضَآءُ مِنْ أَفْوَاهِهِمْ وَمَا تُخْفِى صَدُوْرُهُمْ أَكْبَرُ.../ أل عِمْرَان : 118
O ye who believe! take not into your intimacy those outside your ranks: they will not fail to corrupt you. They only desire your ruin: rank hatred has already appeared from their mouths: what their hearts conceal is far worse. We have made plain to you the Signs, if ye have wisdom.” - (Al Qur’an, Al Imran, verse 118)

    "ZIONISM is racist. Being a fundamentalist political movement, ZIONISM is not categorically different from NAZISM. Only when we understand ZIONISM in its racist context will we begin to comprehend the depth of its atrocities. If Israel won't stop itself. Humanity will eventually unite against this disgraceful state!"

    "Though it is certain that there is no ethnic or racial continuum between the Biblical Israelites and the Khazarians who lead the Jewish state and its army, the similarities between the murderous enthusiasm described in Deuteronomy and the current string of Israeli lethal actions cannot be denied. Israel is a murderous society not because of any biological or racial lineage with its imaginary ‘forefathers’. Israel is deadly because it is driven by a fanatical tribal Jewish ideology and fueled by a psychotic merciless Biblical poisonous enthusiasm." Gilad Atzmon, an Anti-Zionist Israeli activist.

    Meanwhile an American Pastor Nathanael Kapner in his article titled:"Judaism Is A Racist Idea & Is A Cancer of The Western world" published in the Real Jew News website, says:
JUDAISM IS A RACIST IDEA because one can be an atheist and still be considered a subscriber to Judaism. Make no doubt about it - a Gentile who converts to Judaism is considered a second-class citizen by Jews. And it is the Gentile, the “goy,” with his Christianity, that the Jew in his audacity will label a racist offender.


      Facts speak for themselves correctly and objectively that the Zionists are experts at propaganda, disinformation, denying facts and outright lying.

      The Zionists are terrorizing and torturing Palestinians as well as committing genocides against the Palestinians, creating Palestinian Holocaust, stealing their lands and properties as well as destroying their homes on daily basis with the US full support (financially, economically, politically and militarily) to the tune of three to five billion dollars a year, while at the same time, they continue to complain to the world especially the Washington regime and the US-led western regimes -- their captive markets for their propaganda stuffs -- that the Palestinians are terrorists! 
      According to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:  War is an organized, armed, and, often, a prolonged conflict that is carried on between states, nations, or other parties typified by extreme aggression, social disruption, and usually high mortality. War should be understood as an actual, intentional and widespread armed conflict between political communities, and therefore is defined as a form of political violence. The set of techniques used by a group to carry out war is known as warfare. An absence of war (and other violence) is usually called peace.”   
      What we are witnessing in Gaza: only the Zionist forces committing extreme aggression and genocide against poorly defended Palestinian. The Zionists war planes can fly anywhere in the Gaza airspace freely hunting for Palestinian resistant fighters without being afraid of being hit by anti-aircraft guns because Palestinians have no radars and nor air defense system. They also don’t have tanks, armored vehicles and the other modern weaponry to counter the Israeli military might.
       What we are seeing and have been seeing is that the Zionist Forces are committing almost daily barbaric killings of Palestinians, using all kind of sophisticated bombs, fighter bombers, tanks, white phosphoric bombs and DU (Depleted Uranium) munitions as well as the other modern weaponry backed-up by sophisticated nuclear arsenal!
Zionists Terrorists “Pillar of Genocides”
    “Operation Pillar of Cloud” alias “Operation Cloud Column” (Hebrew: עמוד ענן, Amúd Anán) is one of the Zionist Terrorists “Pillars of Genocides” that were and are being committed against Palestinian people including old men, women, children and babies. This “Operation Genocide” proves that ZIONISM is not categorically different from NAZISM.

    Operation Pillar of Cloud is an Israeli Occupation Forces operation in the Gaza Strip, officially launched on November 14, 2012.The operation officially began with the cold-blooded murder of Ahmed Jabari, chief of the Gaza military wing of Hamas.

    The last Genocide in War, in Israel known as Operation Cast Lead (מבצע עופרת יצוקה) and in Gaza and by Hamas known as the Gaza Massacre (مجزرة غزة) or the Battle of al-Furqan [the criterion] (معركة الفرقان) was a three-week armed conflict that took place in the Gaza Strip during the winter of 2008–2009, which started on December 27, 2008. (The Hebrew name means cast in the sense of forged.) Israel's stated aim was to stop rocket fire into Israel and arms import into the Gaza strip.

    Operation “Cast Lead” in the Talmud (the holy book of Judaism) means burning  people.  Total victims of Operation Cast Lead according to Palestinian Ministry of Health, Gaza,  1,440 people were killed including 114 women and 431 children and babies.

    “Operation Pillar of Defense (Pillar of Cloud) is being used in reference to 13:20-20: God seeking to demonstrate the primary of his chosen people. “And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead them the way, and by night in a pillar of fire; to give them the light; to go by day and night:” Exodus 13.21.  Israel apparently believes Almighty God sanctifies cold-blooded murder. Self-defense claims don’t wash. They never do.

Doctrine against humanity

    In some verses of the Talmud they are very explicit about their doctrines against humanity. Read the words of their Talmud:

    Abodah Zara 26b: "Even the best of the Gentiles should be killed."

Nidrasch Talpioth, p. 225-L: "Jehovah created the non-Jew in human form so that the Jew would not have to be served by beasts. The non-Jew is consequently an animal in human form, and condemned to serve the Jew day and night.

    Aboda Sarah 37a: "A Gentile girl who is three years old can be violated."

Schulchan Aruch, Choszen Hamiszpat 388: "It is permitted to kill a Jewish denunciator everywhere. It is permitted to kill him even before he denounces."

    Schulchan Aruch, Choszen Hamiszpat 348: "All property of other nations belongs to the Jewish nation, which, consequently, is entitled to seize upon it without any scruples."

Baba Mezia, 114b "The Jews are called human beings, but the non-Jews are not humans. They are beasts."

    Midrasch Talpioth (fol. 225d): "God created them [Jews] in the form of men for the glory of Israel . But Akum were created for the sole end of ministering unto them [the Jews] day and night. Nor can they ever be relieved from this service. It is becoming to the son of a king [an Israelite] that animals in their natural form, and animals in the form of human beings should minister unto him."

    Babha Kama: "The name of God is not profaned when, for example, a Jew lies to a Goi by saying: 'I gave something to your father, but he is dead; you must return it to me,' as long as the Goi does not know that you are lying."

Israel uses malnutrition as weapon

Since its creation in 1948,
      Israel has used food and nutrition as a means to entrench its military and territorial occupation of Palestine. While all eyes are turned today to the savage eradication of children and entire families in Gaza through operation “Pillar of Cloud”, Israel pursues its long-term goal of decimating the means of food production, livelihoods and the ability of those in Gaza to make economic and political decisions about what they grow and what they eat.

     Gaza and the rest of Occupied Palestine is being restructured as an entity where malnutrition is endemic, access to food is denied and people are forced to live under the constant fear of not having enough to eat.

     In the last eight days, the food and farming sector in Gaza has been severely maimed, worsening the condition of an agricultural sector impaired by six years of Israeli imposed siege, military campaigns and decades of occupation.

      In the first five days of the assault, the Ministry of Agriculture in Gaza estimated losses to the agriculture and fishing sectors to be above US $50 million.

       According to Mohammad El Bakri, who is with the Union of Agricultural Work Committees, and other agricultural specialists in Gaza, farmers are in the midst of the crucial olive harvest and olive oil production season and the destruction is a disastrous blow for food and economic security in Gaza.

Water crisis

       The targeting of tunnels by Israeli airstrikes has restricted the flow of food and fuel into Gaza. Few shops remain open and the UN has warned of an impending water crisis. There are reports of bombing campaigns purposely targeting irrigation wells. The Ministry of Health in Gaza is out of 40 per cent of essential medicines and running low on basics like bandages and syringes.

       Gaza’s dire situation began in 1948 when Zionist militia groups expelled over 700,000 Palestinians from their land, 200,000 of whom fled to Gaza and tripled its population.

       Historically, Gaza had been known for the fresh water oasis of Wadi Gaza, an important stop on trade routes between Egypt and Syria. No longer an oasis, lands razed and levelled by Israeli bulldozers along Gaza’s eastern border (29 per cent of arable land) are now closed. Israeli naval ships harass and water cannon Palestinian fishermen, restricting them to three nautical miles from shore.

       Polluted sewage is leaking into the coastal aquifer from water networks and buildings bombed by Israeli airstrikes in 2008-09′s Operation “Cast Lead”.

      Israel has also blocked the equipment needed to repair the damaged infrastructure. With tap water undrinkable, some people in Gaza are now surviving on 20 litres/day/person, while water consumption for the average Israeli is about 300 litres/day/person.

     All of Gaza’s 10,000 smallholder farms were damaged in the 2008-09 onslaught, half a million trees uprooted and more than one million chickens were killed along with sheep, cattle and goats. The Israelis destroyed 60 per cent of the agricultural industry in Gaza, causing $268m in losses.

     The proportion of Gazans judged “food insecure” increased to 75 per cent and in the aftermath, many households have been found to be chronically food insecure. Two years after the attack, the unemployment rate in Gaza was 45.2 per cent.

Isolated from fields

       The West Bank has fared little better. The Oslo Interim Accords of 1995 carved the West Bank into Area A under Palestinian Authority control representing 3 per cent of the West Bank, Area B under joint control totalling 25 per cent and Area C, 72 per cent of the land, under full Israeli control including the agricultural land of the Jordan Valley.

       In reality, the Israeli army can invade any area at any time. The bifurcation of Palestinian land and the construction of walls and barricades have isolated farmers from fields and markets, given impunity to violent Israeli settlers and disfigured the landscape.

       Israel’s long-term goal in Gaza is not only the enforcement of the siege, but also a strategic application of de-development that forces Palestinians to be dependent on either Israel or international aid.

      In 2007, the Israeli military created a calculation for the minimum number of calories allowed to people in Gaza. The caloric control mechanism ensures collective punishment, but not complete starvation. It is evident that this attack and Israel’s food policy for Palestinians enjoys support from the US government.

       The consequences of the recent assault will only be visible when the dust has settled. But it will surely not depart from the aim expressed by former Israeli official Dov Weisglass in 2006: “The idea is to put the Palestinians on a diet, but not to make them die of hunger.”

Israeli Human Rights Violations Summary

     Israeli violations of international law and international humanitarian law in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT) continued during the  period of Operation Pillar of Cloud  (14 – 21 November 2012).
     The first attack was conducted on Wednesday, 14 November 2012, when IOF extra-judicially executed the leader of Ezz Eddin al-Qassam Brigades (the military wing of Hamas movement), Ahmed al-Ja'bari, and his bodyguard.

       A comprehensive offensive was then launched on civil and military targets throughout the Gaza Strip. As a result, hundreds of Palestinian civilians, including a big number of children, women and elderly, were killed and wounded.

     Moreover, dozens of  houses were destroyed and hundreds of others sustained damages, in addition to the destruction of governmental and private establishments.

     The Operation Pillar of Cloud ended November 21, 2012 after a ceasefire agreement was reached between IOF and the Palestinian resistance movements under the auspices of Egypt. (T/HSH/R-006)
