CALEB MAUPIN—In this chat Caleb covers as usual a wide range of topics, including: A major and powerful analysis of the political origins of 9/11 (the attack on the Towers). Caleb explores the rise of Wahabism, a fanatical branch of Islam supported by Saudi Arabia and the US, and used criminally and cynically by the latter to fight genuine anti-imperialist forces and nations. Caleb reminds us that the 9/11 attacks were NOT carried out by anti-imperialist forces or nations, and that such nations —Cuba, Iran, Syria, Russia, China, etc., well acquainted with the consequences of Wahabism—were in fact clearly opposed to such an act of indiscriminate terror against the American people. The conceptual failure of the left to point out that the attack on the twin towers was not the work of anti-imperialists, but of a Washington proxy and ally, was a huge tactical failure for the American left, including its most famous voices.

EDWARD SAID—Sure enough Sartre did have something for us: a prepared text of about two typed pages that – I write entirely on the basis of a twenty-year-old memory of the moment – praised the courage of Anwar Sadat in the most banal platitudes imaginable. I cannot recall that many words were said about the Palestinians, or about territory, or about the tragic past. Certainly no reference was made to Israeli settler-colonialism, similar in many ways to French practice in Algeria. It was about as informative as a Reuters dispatch, obviously written by the egregious Victor to get Sartre, whom he seemed completely to command, off the hook.

MoA—Clown prince Mohamed bin Salman may have removed his father’s bodyguard to make it easier for himself to take the throne. The recent Yemeni attack on Saudi oil installation and the defeat of at lest two brigades of Saudi troops must put a lot of pressure of him. MbS is the Defense Minister. He started the war on Yemen. He must fear for his job and position. With the king removed he would become unassailable.

RAMZY BAROUD—There is little discussion in Israeli, and, by extension, western media of Gantz’s numerous war crimes during the Gaza war. The focus is mainly placed on the fact that he seems to have finally dislodged Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from a position he had held for nearly 13 years, a scenario that was, until recently, deemed inconceivable.

MOON OF ALABAMA—The King of Saudi Arabia derives legitimacy from his title as “Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques” in Mecca and Medina. The King of Jordan springs from the thousand year old great Hashemite dynasty. He heads the Jerusalem Islamic Waqf (Foundation) and is the custodian of the Islamic holy sites in Jerusalem, the Al-Aqsa mosque and the Dome of the Rock. This responsibility is the only prominent function left for the Hashemite family. It is the source of King Abdullah’s legitimacy. The changes in Saudi Arabia’s policy towards Israel and the Zionist ‘peace plan’ the Trump administration develops create a new situation for Jordan. It is put under immense economic pressure to agree to these plans.
