Today across the entire expanse of Europe, political activity is based on a
single idea: those who refuse to accept our standards stand with the criminals.
Until further notice, no Arab or Muslim official, diplomat or lawmaker will be

the fire will consume everything - killers and victims alike.
It seems that no one in Europe wants to learn the lesson. Every
action of its governments reflects the colonial mentality, and therefore, all we
can expect are more extreme security measures. In France and the rest of
Europe, latent racism has been unleashed against Arabs and Muslims - only this
time out in the open. Their argument is that they are the victims of extremist
crazies living under the cloak of this savage world order.
As for us, we now have to bow our heads and accept insults and
slaps, then apologize for a crime committed by others. To finish the picture,
they consider freedom to be complete if and only if it suits Western interests.
In this sense, it is shameful if you haven't reserved the latest edition of Charlie Hebdo
in solidarity with its journalist-victims and in recognition of the right to
insult and humiliate whoever the West likes.
If dialogue with the West continues like this, not only will
it become tiresome, but God only knows what calamity awaits before the West awakens
from its illusion of global domination!
The mad West is burning, yet it insists on forcing us to submit
and be obedient.
Decades ago in Lebanon (1970s-1980s), people tried to persuade
the (Christian) right, led by the Phalange Party, not to go
too far looking for external backing to protect its interests. It told the right
that all the outside power in the world wouldn't prevent the changes that had
to be made. (The largely-Muslim left, which included a good number of
Christians, wanted political reform, including greater representation in the
legislature, meaning fewer Christian seats). Yet the right resorted to the sectarian
religious weapon and began to justify its actions based on fear of the
influence of the Muslim majority! So it was said that KamalJumblatt and Yasser Arafat were forever
seeking ways to reassure [Phalange Party leader] Pierre Gemayel
by telling him: do not fear [reform]! His answer: It's not important what you
say. What's important is that I will not feel afraid! [Meaning he would seek
outside support – which turned out to be Israel].

Today it would be exceedingly difficult to convince the West
that its policies, freedoms, media, universities and way of life must embrace
real change to bring about equality. The West has decided that its dark-skinned
minorities and people from the south want to sabotage its lifestyle and
civilization. In its stupidity and the belief that it rules the entire world,
the West gives itself the right to do what it deems appropriate to protect its interests.
Not only is it in a state of well-practiced denial, the West insists on its
right to control the biggest share of the planet's wealth while denying others
the right to criticize it on the grounds that that Westerners worked harder to
get where they are. Today people in the West will tell you: "You are an
Arab and a Muslim, meaning you are a backward!" They will find among our
people, not only among our rulers, some who accept this characterization. In recent
days we have heard many of the sons of our people and culture chanting: "Stop
the justifications, explanations or clarifications. We are responsible for the
Now, across the entire expanse of Europe, political
activity is based on a single idea: those who refuse to accept our standards
stand with the criminals. Until further notice, no Arab or Muslim official,
diplomat or lawmaker will be able to hold a discussion with a European
counterpart without first cursing himself, his family, his religion and his culture.
This is a West that will never understand that it is pouring fuel on the fire,
indifferent to the fact that the fire will consume everything - killers and
victims alike. For the immediate future sporadic news will be disseminated under
the heading "individual criminal acts" to describe attacks against
Arabs, Muslims and their interests across Europe. If neo-Nazis come out and commit
massacres, someone from the West would justify these as a reaction!

What's so frightening is not the level of Western racism and
oppression. In the countries of the Levant and Maghreb servility is all we've
known for at least over a hundred years. What's frightening is the monster released
among us and that has shown its face in France will be the strongest yet, will
find supporters and will have an agenda of acts so insane that we've never
witnessed them before. It will mark the declining influence of the wise and
What will the stubborn West say now? Will it say: "Now
you have shown your true backward and cruel self?" Will it say: You have
turned my mirror, which I was long trying to shatter, into your own [i.e.: Muslims
are behaving like the West behaved in the past but was trying to stop, so now the West will behave badly again]. Or will
someone emerge to shout down his peers and bring them back to their senses?
Until then, let us consider what it is we want. The truth
is that the racist monster dwelling in the Western mind will dominate the scene,
and it would be foolish to greet it with flowers. The events of recent days are
like the most horrifying prayer for blood. For anyone participating, either
voluntarily or against their will, it is a dirty game. Such is the period of
bloody chaos in which we live today, from Iraq to Syria, from Lebanon to
Palestine, which is preparing the ground for a global phenomenon.
Let everyone stand firm and keep as cool as possible. Let us
reserve the right to loudly say no in the face of an insane West that will be
consumed by the fire of its hatred; and let is also reserve the right to say no
to this era's madmen among our own … but let nothing force us to retreat or surrender.
