- "Let's see how the Israelis cope with the threat
of terror", said the BBC presenter in a London studio. Seemingly,
we are now supposed to be learning from the experience of the Israelis.
Ask yourselves why. Simply because we are now fully Zionised, we are fighting
the Zionist wars and we pay the heaviest price for it.
- A second later we are watching a news item from Jerusalem,
the local BBC correspondent is interviewing three American settlers. They
are all overwhelmingly confident. They are telling us that thanks to security
officers located now at every bus stop in town, Jerusalem hasn't experienced
a suicide attack for over 18 months. Let me tell you, the reality is somewhat
different. The Palestinians are now locked behind separation walls, within
enclaves, Bantustans and concentration camps. I do hope that you all realise
that if we give Tony Blair enough time this will be the reality of Birmingham,
Bradford or any other mixed city in the UK. Racial hatred is the biggest
danger for a multi-ethnic society and we are such a society.
- But then, it isn't that surprising that the BBC suggests
that we may have to learn from the Israelis. Blair's ties with Zionism
are now more than established. At the time, I remember some reports from
Israel that MI6 and the CIA were there amongst the IDF forces who flattened
Jenin Refugee Camp, they were looking for Palestinian 'links with al Qaeda'.
There are some serious reports that Israeli officers were advising the
American and British armies in Basra and Fallujah, and even if this isn't
true, we can clearly see that the invasion armies in Iraq are applying
the various IDF tactics.
- The UK (following the USA) is operating as a Zionist
mission force. It fights the last pockets of Arab resistance. Let's face
it, we were pooled into this Zionist led 'cultural clash'. In the name
of the 'Judeo Christian' myth, we are fighting the Muslim world. We are
daily engaged in the destruction of Iraqi lives and as it seems, this clash
is about to expand.
- We all agree that Israel is operating as a Colonialist
state motivated by racial supremacist views. But then, isn't the case of
Blair's Britain very similar? If Tony Blair isn't a white supremacist how
dare he suggesting that Democracy is the right way forward for the Muslim
world. How come he knows better than the Muslims what is good for them?
When you come to determine other people's lives you must believe that you
know better. You must assume that you are better.
- Last week, a very small cell of cold-blooded murderous
terrorists has managed to jeopardise the false image of Western civilised
brethren. Their message is clear: it isn't about African poverty. It is
rather about Zionised Anglo-American domination in the Middle East, it
is about the support for Israel. It is about us electing with popular vote
a war criminal, we are the ones who do not respect other people's lives.
And we pay the price for it. The message of the terrorists is clear: You
kill us, we kill you. You bomb our towns, we bomb yours.
- As it seems, our image of reality is shaped by TV operators
and media lords. Reality in itself is delivered as a self referential fictional
theme. On the day of the attack I was sitting frozen in front of my TV
screen. It was very hard to learn what was really going on. As usual we
saw the very same pictures for the next 24 hrs. Although the attack took
place at 9 AM, at 5 PM they were still talking about 2 fatalities. We saw
the emergency services praising themselves. Everything was wonderfully
under control except the miserable commuters who were sentenced to death
by Tony Blair. They were down there in Russell Square tube station and
as far as I am aware, they are still there. The emergency services cannot
get there. Ladies and gentlemen, the Piccadilly line is a death trap. But
wasn't it a death trap before the attack? Wasn't it a death trap before
Blair voluntarily joined the 'War against Terror'? Mr Tony Blair, next
time, before you take your country into a war you must find an alternative
solution to your death traps at home. Let me tell you, if you can't find
an alternative just forget about starting wars.
- And yet, hardly anyone in the UK opens his mouth. We
are facing a real crisis here. We do not operate as a community. We act
as a bunch of isolated wounded animals. We regard ourselves as statistical
figures. Calculation is very simple: 3,000,000 commuters use the tube every
day, 100-1,000 of them may die in the next attack, it is unlikely to be
me. In fact we all joined Blair's Russian Roulette game. If people in this
room are concerned with privatisation, this is the ultimate form of privatisation.
We have now managed to detach ourselves from our innermost sense of being
in the world. We are not searching for meaning, we are merely concerned
with paying the bills. This is the ultimate form of alienation. We forgot
what life is all about. Empathy is out of the window. How can you ever
feel for the other if you cannot even feel for yourself? Clearly, from
now on, Londoners regard death caused by terror as another aspect of modern
life. In a way we internalise the values of a murderous society. We are
the murderer awaiting his punishment.
- This doesn't leave us with much hope for any better future
unless we initiate our search for beauty. Why beauty? It is because unlike
technology, beauty is the ultimate manifestation of humanism, whether it
is poetry, a theatre play, a piece of sculpture, a painting, a symphony,
or even just a simple melody. It is the artist: the poet, the composer
and the painter who can change our prospects of reality. It is the artist
who always presents an alternative discourse. This may sound to you overly
poetic but let me tell you, there are too many people out there who are
craving for a free dialogue. Being a performer I meet them everyday. They
are all tired of politics and politicians. They want to read some real
subversive texts, they want to fight the world order. They want to be overwhelmed
by beauty and they are searching for a new song.Back to top
