Editor’s note: Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the influential Muslim scholar mentioned below, has issued a fatwa calling for the murder of Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi.
Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Sunday called on Muslims to “remove” the United States from the Islamic world.
“The main problem in the Muslim world is the presence of the United States. It is the biggest problem. We need to address that,” he told a gathering of Shiite and Sunni scholars during an international conference on Islam held in Tehran.
Khamenei said Muslims around the world must preserve the “people’s movement in Egypt.” He said it was the duty of both the people and dignitaries of Arab nations and the entire Islamic community.
Khamenei, however, failed to mention that while Mubarak is gone the same gaggle of military generals now control the government in Egypt. The previous so-called civilian administration and the Egyptian High Council of the Armed Forces are basically the same body.
Also not mentioned by Khamenei is the fact Sami Hafez Al-Anan (Al-Enan), the chief of staff of the Egyptian military, was in Washington for two days and visited the Pentagon after the protests began in Egypt. He was likely receiving further instruction.
On the surface, the bloody protests in Bahrain (home of the U.S. Fifth Fleet) and elsewhere in the Muslim world seem to be bad news for the United States. In fact, the exploding events are high theater and will not result in vaguely defined democracy for the people of Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria, Yemen, Libya, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, and least of all the Palestinian territories.
Liberals love to hate Glenn Beck, but something he said recently makes a lot of sense. He said the “revolution” in Egypt is the beginning of a caliphate in the Middle East.
Beck’s task is to play the false left-right paradigm like a Stradivarius, so naturally he ties in the so-called Left in his analysis.
“For Beck, current events in Egypt are occurring as a result of their connection to his pet-list of far-Left ideologues, like Van Jones, and a host of organizations and unions allegedly linked to Soros. While many of these connections are legitimate, Beck obscures altogether the long history of Pentagon intervention in foreign politics. The CIA and U.S. military have, for decades, sponsored and created radical Islamic factions, including the Muslim Brotherhood, the Taliban and more,” Alex Jones and Aaron Dykes wrote on February 12.
Jones and Dykes conclude that in fact a complex series of destabilization efforts all across the Middle East are underway and ultimately these efforts will result in war in the region. “Control over the region, along with Central Asia, is believed to be essential for global domination. This aspiring New World Order will divide these nations in order to conquer them, even as they consolidate the major regions under a larger world government,” they write.
The idea of a Muslim caliphate and the imposition of sharia law are central to the destabilization plan. In the U.S., neocons and other Islamophobes and Likudniks have long warned about the absurd possibility of global sharia law and the threat posed by Islam.
On the propaganda front, Anjem Choudary, Abu Izzadeen and Sayful Islam serve as dupes for the corporate media as it fans the flames of anti-Islamic hysteria. Choudary, who once said “the flag of Islam will fly over the White House,” told Fox News he will lead a demonstration rallying Muslims to establish Sharia law across the United States.
Choudary’s organization, the radical Islamist group Islam4UK, is accused of operating as a front for British intelligence. It is connected to al-Muhajiroun and its leader, Omar Bakri Muhammad, who has admitted being associated with MI5.

Another useful individual for the globalists is the popular Egyptian Sunni televangelist Youssef al-Qaradawi. He has called for a Muslim United Nations and a modern version of the Prophet’s caliphate that would form a pan-national superstate. He is one of the most influential Islamic scholars in the world today. He also happens to hold a prominent role within the intellectual leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic transnational movement that was long ago penetrated by the CIA and British intelligence.
As I noted in 2006, MI5 and British intelligence have a long and sordid history of sponsoring and engaging in terrorism. Hichem Karoui, writing for Media Monitors Network in 2001, documents the heavy hand of British intelligence in Islamic terror.
Western intelligence is fomenting the popular rebellions now spanning the Islamic world. We are witnessing the next chapter in the infamous “clash of civilizations” agenda spawned by the neocons at the behest of the global elite who are engineering order out of chaos not only in the Arab and Muslim world, but in much of the third world where smoldering resentment and class warfare threatens to erupt at any moment.
On February 4, during Friday prayers, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei called for an Islamic regime to be installed in Egypt. It remains to be seen if this will be the case.
It is not known if Khamenei realizes that the Islamic regime in Iran was installed by the globalists. As William Engdahl documented in his book, A Century Of War : Anglo-American Oil Politics and the New World Order, the globalists covertly supported the Iranian revolution.
“In November 1978, then president Carter named the Bilderberg group’s George Ball, another member of the Trilateral Commission, to head a special White House Iran task force under the National Security Council’s Brzezinski,” writes Engdahl. “Ball recommended that Washington drop support for the Shah of Iran and support the fundamentalistic Islamic opposition of Ayatollah Khomeini. Robert Bowie from the CIA was one of the lead ‘case officers’ in the new CIA-led coup against the man their covert actions had placed into power 25 years earlier.”
In order to create order out of chaos and rearrange the geopolitical map, the globalists betray their former puppets for a new crop of autocrats and brutal thugs. That is precisely what is happening now in the Middle East and North Africa – the globalists are working behind the scenes to overthrow corrupt military dictatorships in order to allow an Islamic consolidation of power that will feed the paranoia of the West and initiate the plan for a new war.
