The Ineptitude of our Politicians & the Political Process……

Total Incompetence…….

Despite having access to the best legal opinion that our taxes offer to those at the Home Office, successive ministers have managed to mess up the deportation of the alleged terrorist Abu Qatada to face charges of his links to acts of terror in Jordan.  In no way do I support the views held by Mr. Qatada or adhere to the vile rhetoric he has expressed.  However, if his involvement with Osama Bin Laden and the acts of terror carried out under his direction are so clear cut, why has it taken 10 years, much of which Abu Qatada has spent in unlawful detention, to finally reach a position whereby he can be extraditied to face charges in relation to these supposed crimes?  Futhermore, why are we now in a position that makes this process seem even less iminant?……

Extraordinary Rendition……

Had Abu Qatada not been such a high profile and outspoken candidate I’m sure the Home Secretary may well have signed off on an ‘Extraordinary Rendition’ and, true to form, deigned any knowledge of the actions of the department for which they bare ultimate responsibility……

 

Thought Crimes……

 

As far as I am able to ascertain Abu Qatada, whether you agree with his ideological stand point or not, is guilty of nothing more than thought crimes and extreme outspoken opinions.  There is no evidence that he actively contributed to, or orchestrated any terrorist attacks against any individual or state.  If he had I have now doubt the politicians would have been shouting the accusations from the rooftops.  He is yet another pawn in the global game of ‘radical Islamic terrorism’ and a convenient distraction from the reality of the political game being played out between the east and the west.  If any concrete evidence existed the courts would have been able to convict Abu Qatada of the crimes they insinuate he has supposed to have committed.  Instead, they are playing a political game of insinuation and inference against a man, who regardless of his political stand point, has committed nothing more than ‘thought crimes’.  Although I disagree profoundly with his political position, it is not beyond comprehension to understand how the government has reached this point of view.  The ‘democratic’ world in which we live is as corrupt and self serving as any fundamental Islamic idealism……

 

In many ways the Abu Qatada story detracts from the current situation in which world politics presents its self.  The western governments continue to portray Islamic countries as backward thinking, extreme societies whose only agenda is to defeat the west.  But to what aim?  Is there any good reason for them to want to instigate a fight, which they know they know they cannot win against the military supremacy of their opponents?  The answer is quite simple: no, they can’t.  They know they can never win a war against the military supremacy of the United States and its allies but they can take a stand over what they represent……

 

The Abu Qatada Deception……

 

Abu Qatada represents nothing more than a headline grabbing deception from the reality of the war crimes committed by the west against Islamic nations.  Wars have been waged, countries destroyed and hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians, women and children included, whose crimes amount to nothing more than the struggle for survival.  The deceptions portrayed by the US and their allies are nothing to do with freedom and the improvement of the lives of the populations of the countries involved.  They are about oil and the military industrial complex which makes money for the ‘allies’ and misery for the resident populations……

 

The deportation of Abu Qatada will have no effect on the ‘War on Terror’ or the innocent people affected by it.  This is just another diversion from the truth……

 

War Crimes……

 

‘When will successive British Home Secretaries face charges at the International Court of Justice for their complicity in the unlawful deportation  and torture of UK citizens and the invasion of sovereign nations based on information they know to be untrue?’……
