From last year, but worth reading.
The West is weak, not only or even mostly in terms of military strength, but in terms of moral force, of authority, of integrity. It has been largely taken over by the Jew element but. alongside that, has rolled over for the wealthy Arab element.
Anyone who has lived in or near Central London will know to what extent there has been a huge Arab (and other Muslim) influx since the 1970s. The instability of the Middle East has sent a series of waves of migration to London: the Lebanese civil war, the Iranian Islamic revolution, the many subsequent events.
However, beyond that, there has been another Arab invasion since the 1970s, that of Arab wealth. As someone whose parents and brothers were all great racing fans, I heard the stories of how this or that sheikh or emir would glide through Ascot, giving doormen baksheesh of a £50 or £20 note merely for having opened a door or gate for the mogul. That was in the late 1970s and the 1980s, when £50 was really worth having.
That eagerness, to have a little of the new-ish Arab oil wealth rub off on English palms, was not confined to doormen and chauffeurs but spread to the City of London money-men, lawyers and others and, most tellingly, to the more corrupt of the political class at Westminster. One name: Jonathan Aitken.
Then there was the rumoured £30 million bung paid to Mark Thatcher (despite his being a political nullity and a general nobody), in order to sweeten Mrs. Thatcher, his mother and, of course, Prime Minister at the time. Britain for sale…
The Gulf Arabs (Saudis, Qataris, Kuwaitis etc) have only the most negligible culture and history to set alongside that of Europe, but Fate (they say the Will of Allah) has made them rich via oil found by Europeans (and by Europeans become Americans), exploited by Europeans/Americans, extracted by Europeans/Americans, shipped or pumped by Europeans/Americans, refined by Europeans/Americans, and finally bought and utilized mainly by Europeans/Americans.
The Gulf Arabs bring nothing to the table. They just sit there, arrogantly, unable to defend themselves without American, British and French help, unable even to make their societies function on a 20th/21st Century basis without expat Europeans/Americans etc to run everything (and Indians, Pakistanis, Filipinos etc to do much of the manual work, with refugee Palestinians often occupying the space in between).
In Qatar, for example, Qataris are only about 15% of the population, but they are the only ones with any real rights. I have been there twice, once in 2001 when it was a pleasant, sleepy place, then again in 2008, by which time it had become a horrible overdeveloped mess.
In fact, if the Qataris all just disappeared, Qatar would be a far better place (also applicable to the rest of the Middle East).
The invasion of Kuwait in 1990 showed up the Kuwaitis for the useless, venal, cowardly creatures they are, the “royal” family and others living in luxury hotels in Taif (Saudi Arabia) while the British, American and French Foreign Legion forces fought for and won back Kuwait for the Kuwaitis who did not deserve it.
Had it not been for the Second World War and then the Cold War and its superpower standoff, the Gulf would have become more or less another Western colony and would have been far far better for it. It is very regrettable that the Gulf Arabs were able to pose as powerful independent allies inter se and vis a vis “the West”, when they are just parasites.
They infest London and other cities, driving their million-pound sports cars around, enjoying themselves with local sluts and making a nuisance of themselves in areas such as Kensington, Knightsbridge etc.
I think that the West generally should impose a true suzerainty over the whole of the Middle East, and rule all the states there (including Israel) while allowing a degree of autonomy within state boundaries. It’s only right.
As for the “sheikhs”, “emirs”, “kings” and local dictators, just remove them. Permanently.
Oh, I forgot: Lawrence of Arabia (T.E. Lawrence) was an idiot, albeit an erudite and remarkable one!

It seems that the popularity of Boris-idiot is plummeting. Not because he and his moronic crew have imposed a mass house arrest and destroyed both civil rights and the British economy, but because of his support for Dominic Cummings amid the recent trivial “scandal”.
