From puppets’ to people’s century

To the United States’ most favored Muslim dictators.

Dear little tyrants! You may not believe, but as your masters –” the super tyrants –” are rejoicing over the ultimate humiliation of one of your buddies, our hearts cry for you.

Our hearts cry, not because we will miss your repression after you are gone the same way your role model, Saddam, did. Our own hearts cry out against us for we could not help you see the writing on the wall for you.

We cry, not because our humiliation, death and destruction always precede your capture or a violent death. We cry because you are one of us. It matters little if opportunism makes you paint yourself as communists, Baathists or enlightened moderates.

The millions that are suffering under your inhuman rules know that you have ignored the very first thing you learnt as Muslims. Are not you supposed to ask and repeat several times a day: “Thee alone do we serve and Thee alone do we beseech for help” (Al-Qur’an 1:5)?

We know whom do you trust and who you look forward to for protection. Our hearts cry because we know that the days to your global humiliation after the Shah of Iran, Zia ul Haq, Osama bin Laden, Afghan Mujahideen and Saddam Hussein, are numbered.

Saddam outlived his utility after 40 years. Some of you are employed just a few years ago. Musharraf threw out Nawaz Sharif just in 1999 and became the most favored Muslim monster after 9/11. Karzai emerged under his shadow. You are too fresh to be considered international thugs and out laws.

On the other hand, your senior buddy, Saddam, first became member of a CIA-authorized six-man squad tasked with assassinating then Iraqi Prime Minister Gen. Abd al-Karim Qasim in 1959. [1]

O’ the US imposed mini-masters of Muslim’s destiny! We see your faces in the humiliated face of Saddam. We are sorry for your fate because none of you have fought and killed as many Muslims in a neighboring Muslim country for the US as Saddam Hussein did for not less than 10 years.

Our hearts cry for you because when your protectors catch you like lambs, they will make their new employees your prosecutor and judges. We, the people, will still be helpless spectators.

Our hearts cry for you because besides prolonging our suffering, you are digging graves for yourself. Digging better holes, you know, will be of no use.

Tomorrow, when your masters humble you, the New York Times will forget the crimes of the monster-keepers –” your owners and trainers, who unleash such monsters among us..

On your death or capture, the New York Times will write: “One indisputable fact …is that this man ranked with the world’s most vicious dictators…His crimes were monstrous” [2]

Editors of the NY Times will forget, for example, that they have already written in favour of Musharraf on July 03, 2002, in an attempt to force the Americans to think that their “security would be gravely threatened” if Musharraf is not helped. The same editors presented “The Case for the General” on November 12, 1999.

The Washington Post and Boston Globe will ignore their support and your decades long services as US employees. They will equate you with “murderers who preceded [you], from Hitler to Pol Pot.” [3]

Now that you are busy committing crimes against us, no one cares. At the moment, freedom and democracy are reserved for Iraq. However, the moment you fell from grace in Washington, if it survived as we know it, Los Angeles Times will remember us and take the lead to demand: “He should be tried for his crimes against his people, which are legion and well document.” [4]

No one will ask the Los Angelis Times if its editors were sleeping for the last 40 years, or they were just waiting for your crimes to get “well documented.” You will, however, stand trial, if you survive, in tribunals established by your masters just a week before your staged capture.

Similarly, as you will reach your destiny one by one, so will democracy and liberation become unavoidable for Muslim countries one by one. At the moment, the US “mainstream” media feel no need to discuss the lack of freedom and democracy in the countries run by the most favored US-monsters.

O’ dear dictators of the Muslim world! Before the next one of you gets in line, we appeal you to leave the power to real representatives of the people and let them run these states according to the Qur’an and Sunnah.

Let’s move on from the century of puppets to the century of the people. It will take some time to put things in order but it will soon prove to the media-influenced Western public that this form of governance is neither a threat to their interests nor to anyone’s basic rights or global security.

Our hearts cry because with the writing for you on the wall, we also see what is in store for us. We know what happens to our homes and sons and daughters when your masters come to liberate us from your tyranny.

Dear dictators! You better leave before your masters come to get you –” not for your disobedience, but for their finding better employees, able to offer more services.
