The Left champions majority theocracies

 The Left is enamoured with totalitarianism and endorses pan-Islamism, having previously embraced Pan-Arabism - all at the expense of the Middle East's struggling minorities, with the exception of its support for the Arab Muslims of Israel. Brilliant article by Daniel Greenfield of Sultan Knish:



 The pan-Arabist President of Egypt, Gamal Abdul Nasser, being cheered by his supporters in 1956



The left backed the Arab Spring which rewarded the ambitions of Arabist and Islamist activists at the expense of Coptic, African and other minorities. Its great regional obsession is statehood for the Arab Muslims of Israel, (better known by their local Palestinian brand), but has little to say about the Kurds in Turkey or the Azeri in Iran. The million Jewish refugees and the vanishing Christians of the region never come up in conversation. They certainly don't get their own lefty protest rallies. 


The Africans of Sudan could have used an entire UN organization dedicated to their welfare, which the Arab Muslims who had failed to wipe out the region's Jewish minority are the beneficiaries of. But they had to make do with third tier aid.

Unlike the Arab nationalists and Islamists of Libya, the French, English and American air force did not come to their rescue. It came to the rescue of the Libyans who showed their gratitude in the time- honored way of the Arab majority by massacring the African minority and then killing some Americans. But what's a little genocide between friends?

The left embraced Pan-Arabism, a race based nationalism, in line with the Soviet Union's expansionist foreign policy. Pan-Arabism's socialism made it easy for the left to ignore its overt racism along with the admiration of many of its leading lights for Nazi Germany. The same left which refused to see the Gulags and the ethnic cleansing under the red flag, turned an equally blind eye to the contradiction of condemning Zionism for its ethnic basis, while supporting Pan-Arabism, which was ethnically based.

Under Zionism, Israel retained a sizeable Arab minority. The Pan-Arabists however drove their Jews out with mob violence, political repression, prisons and public executions. The left's criticisms of Zionism are rendered moot by their own support for Pan-Arabism, and their own longstanding hostility to Jewish national identity, insisting that socialism demands that Jews assimilate into the dominant race, whether in Russia or Western Europe. In the Middle East and North Africa, Arabization has led to repression of non-Arab minorities and the destruction of other cultures through the insistence on unity through race.

As the sun of Pan-Arabism sets, the left has turned its attention to Pan-Islamism with equal enthusiasm. While Pan-Arabism allowed Christian Arabs some representation, Pan-Islamism excludes based on religion. Having endorsed a racial tyranny, the left has fallen so low that it now champions majority theocracies.

The left's fledgling support for Kurdish nationalism has faded as Turkey has gone from a secular ally of the Western powers, to an Islamist tyranny dreaming of empire. This perverse twist of affairs has the left abandoning the national struggles of an oppressed people when their rulers align themselves more closely with the bigoted regional majority.

The War on Iraq, which the left hated, removed a tyrant aligned with the region's Sunni majority and the Libyan campaign, which the left supported, removed a tyrant who had deviated too far from the positions of that majority. So too in Egypt, where Mubarak's excessive tolerance for minorities, led the left to endorse the Pan-Arabist and Pan-Islamist calls for his overthrow. And in Tunisia, where a government tolerant of minorities has been replaced by the Islamists.

The pattern repeats itself over and over again as the left rises in support of racial and theocratic rule. And for all the left's critiques of American and European foreign policy, its own foreign policy which endorses racial and theocratic rule and works to bring it about is a true crime and blot on the region < The left backed the Arab Spring which rewarded the ambitions of Arabist and Islamist activists at the expense of Coptic, African and other minorities. Its great regional obsession is statehood for the Arab Muslims of Israel, (better known by their local Palestinian brand), but has little to say about the Kurds in Turkey or the Azeri in Iran. The million Jewish refugees and the vanishing Christians of the region never come up in conversation. They certainly don't get their own lefty protest rallies. 

It is no coincidence that the one country in the region that the left hates above all else, is neither Arab nor Muslim.

Somehow I question whether Israel self-describing itself as a Jewish state makes it any more a theocracy than countless European states with offical state religions.

To anonymous,

"Jewish" is just as much a national ethnic group as it is a religion. Just like members of the Coptic and Assyrian churches. But whether it is or it isn't, describing a state as "Jewish" doesn't mean that there is no freedom of religion for non-Jews, the only country in the Middle East where there is such a thing. Those countries that describe themselves as ARAB states (Arab-occupied states is more like it), mean an exclusively ARAB state period.

Yes, Davsil. That was my issue with the commentary. Iran is absolutely a theocracy, ruled by Sharia and the Supreme Council made up entirely of ayatollahs. So are any states where the majority faith severely precludes the rights of religious minorities, like Saudi Arabia.

Israel ain't guilty on any count.

Methinks that something is rotten in the State of Belgium. In fact something is very wrong in the whole EU. Many things are wrong in the EU, and first and foremost is Judeophobia.

Sultana, the euros in their immense hypocrisy hide behind Arab grievances against Jews in order to wash off their consciences soiled by Holocaust memories.
