Aramean people: Aramean people (not to be confused with ‘Armenians’) speak Aramaic, the language spoken by Abraham, Moses and Jesus. They are the indigenous people of what was called in ancient times Aram- Nahrin, in our days it is called ‘Mesopotamia’.
Some Arameans today identify themselves with “Assyrians”, because of the spiritual colonial hate generating activities of the Western missionaries and diplomats in the Middle-East in 16th and 19th centuries. Other Arameans became known as “Chaldeans”. However all of them are Arameans.
Aramaeans Show the Way to Oromos, Baluch, Berbers, Iraqi Turkmen, Ogadenis, Other Oppressed Nations
By Prof. Dr. Muhammad Shamsaddin Megalommatis, Orientalist
A critical misconception, a key misunderstanding and/or an erroneous evaluation of the global situation are enough reasons to drive a liberation front to failure.
In general, political organizations of subjugated nations, liberation fronts and armies, Human Rights activist groups, and cultural associations struggling to defend imperiled cultures, religions and languages of tyrannized nations have leaderships that reflect a well-typified profile.
This creates a great problem that, although it remains widely unperceived by the said organizations, fronts and associations, highly jeopardizes the struggle of oppressed nations worldwide.
Who are the leaders of these organizations, parties, and fronts?
Coming from different socioeconomic backgrounds, emanating from varied cultural – religious – linguistic environments, belonging to diverse educational and professional fields and levels, and subsisting in dissimilar lifestyles, these leaders have a determinant, and problematic, common denominator:
Liberation Fronts’ Leaders – A Profile
They almost all
- were exposed to oppression in
their occupied land of origin,
If we bypass the natural nostalgia of, the inherent concern for, the incessant communication with, and the instinctive commitment to, their land of origin (which represents both the supreme ideal for their thoughts and the abysmal drama for their relatives, friends and acquaintances left behind), all these leaders have been successfully incorporated in their new "homelands".
from Subjugated Nations vs. Immigrants from Fake States
Some may have an objection to the
aforementioned and try to bring in support of their opinion the well known
case of some extremist Muslims. This is a terrible mistake.
The extremist, radical Muslims
who live in the West do not originate from the numerous subjugated nations
of Asia and Africa; they come from truly sovereign but absolutely fake
states that should have never existed because they do not reflect any real
local need for self-determination but are the result of evil colonial
interests and involvement.
In fact, there is not a single
extremist, radical Muslim who belongs in Asia’s and Africa’s subjugated
nations, like the Afars, the Oromos, and the Ogadenis of Abyssinia, the
Berbers of Morocco and Algeria, the Nubians of Sudan, the Turkmen of Iraq,
the Azeris of Iran, and the Baluch of Pakistan. However, this is another,
Incorporation in a New "Homeland": Advantage or Disadvantage
What is the problem with the
leaders of political organizations of subjugated nations, liberation fronts
and armies, Human Rights activist groups, and cultural associations, who
have been successfully incorporated in their new "homelands"?
The problem is that their
successful incorporation in their new "homelands", unfortunately and
disastrously deprives them of any sense of criticism, objective assessment,
and authentic evaluation of these new "homelands".
This great problem remains
totally unperceived (which constitutes automatically a second level of the
same problem) for many long years (read: forever), and thus these leaders
are driven to very erroneous political decision making as regards the steps,
methods, and means needed to be taken for their national liberation
deprivation of any sense of criticism of these new "homelands". What does
Search for the Ideal
This means that, for an Oromo
born in Adama, for a Sidama originating from Awassa, for a Berber of Tizi
Ouzou, for a Nubian of Dunqulah, for a Beja born in Port Sudan, for a
Turkmen of Kirkuk, for an Azeri originating from Zenjan, for a Baluch of
Zahedan, and for many others, life is better in Los Angeles, New York,
Chicago, Boston, Geneva, Paris, Munich, Manchester, Toronto, Dublin,
Canberra, Stockholm and other cities of the Western world than in their
cities of origin.
This assessment is
not better in these new "homelands".
Simply, due to the removal of the
oppression and the persecution from their lives, life is better for them.
This merely means that they were offered better chances of personal and
professional, educational and socioeconomic progress. This is true. But this
does not imply that average life in today’s Western world represents a
possible value either for these leaders (living now in their new
"homelands") or for the local peoples themselves.
Technological World: a Non-civilization
The idea that the technological
development and the ensuing conditions of life represent a progress, a
development and an enhancement in the Mankind’s millennia long History is a
The rise of modern technologies,
the Industrial Revolution, the industrial mass production, the emergence of
the consumers’ societies, the ensuing vulgar materialism, inhuman
conformism, baseless conventionalism, and immoral relativism with all their
side-effects, the rise of the tertiary sector in the economy (services), and
today’s western lifestyle, which is evolving around the previous axes,
represent an ominous decadence of the Mankind and constitute an undeserved
descent into the real Nether World.
Little matters whether someone
agrees with the aforementioned or does not. As these developments occurred
under terms of manipulated deception, unethical ruse, and orchestrated
cultural disintegration, the entire Western world has been held captive by
the unseen manipulators, namely the hidden masters of the aforementioned
deception plan. A deceived (and thus victimized) person’s opinion has
absolutely no value.
Addicted to the aforementioned
scheme’s magnetic elements, the Western peoples have minimal chance to
clearly realize what happened to them, and infinitesimal chance to
But people originating from
Africa’s and Asia’s subjugated nations and living in the Western world are
different; they come from a totally different cultural, socio-behavioral,
and moral background. Their cultural integrity, national authenticity,
socio-behavioral validity and historical identity, as survived in their
hearts and minds, are real privileges and determinant advantages able to
guide them to correctly assess the situation of today’s Western world.
For an Oromo, what is the point
of avoiding Amharization in Adama only to accept Westernization in Miami?
Yet, it would be easy for any of
them to deal with the subject; suffice it that the correct question is
formulated. And the correct question is this:
How would have some Baluch, Iraqi
Turkmen, South Azeri, Ogadeni, and Berber erudite imams, authors, poets or
learned ulemas evaluated, before 250 years, today’s Western society, had
they been in the know of the implementation results of the then elaborated
How would have a Sidama and an
Oromo wise elders considered, before 250 years, today’s Western society, had
they been aware of all its prevailing aspects and constituent elements,
expressions and practices?
This type of question is easy to
both, make and answer.
It would perhaps be even wiser to
formulate a variant of the question for every single aspect of today’s
Western societies and for the lifestyle involved, which would help multiply
the original question by thousands.
The great number of answers would
thus bear witness to the chaotic difference that separates – and must
separate – all those who seek cultural integrity, national authenticity,
socio-behavioral validity, historical identity, and political
self-determination from the entire system ‘Western World’.
‘Western World’: a Non Value for Today’s Subjugated Nations
As a matter of fact, the
traditional, real values of today’s subjugated nations make the rejection of
the entire system ‘Western World’ imperative for all of them.
Certainly, this issue is vast at
the level of Sociology, Social Anthropology, History of Religions,
Comparative Literature, Modern History, History of Colonialism, and Cultural
Studies. However, I don’t discuss it here within this context. I mentioned
the overall divide in order to merely refer to political decision making.
If the ‘values’ of a Western
nation’s sociopolitical system are inherently rejected by the traditional,
genuine values that constitute the axes of national – cultural integrity of
an African or Asiatic nation that happens to be nowadays subjugated and
oppressed, certainly there has to be no contact – let alone cooperation –
between the said sociopolitical system’s representatives and the members of
the subjugated nation who happen to have been successfully incorporated in
the Western nation’s sociopolitical system.
For all the subjugated and
oppressed nations of Africa and Asia, the Western World is irrevocably the
Hell, notwithstanding the integration and/or the eventual personal and
professional success of some of the members of the subjugated nations in the
The socio-cultural approach is
corroborated by a historical – political analysis. In fact, the real
malefactors of the subjugated nations are the leading Western
establishments, all those who supported and contributed to the rise of
today’s Western societies. It is impossible for today’s Oromos, Ogadenis,
Berbers, South Azeris, Iraqi Turkmen, Baluch, Sidamas and so many other
subjugated nations, and for the leaders of the various political
organizations, liberation fronts and armies, Human Rights activist groups,
and cultural associations, to expect help from those who are the root cause
of all the calamities befallen on Africa’s and Asia’s subjugated and
This must be understood once and
forever by all these leaders who represent their nations’ only substantial
reason for hope. Every discussion with a smiley American, French and English
consists in a knife stabbed in their nations’ heart.
Certainly, there are several
benevolent, trustful and truthful interlocutors of Africa’s and Asia’s
subjugated and oppressed nations’ leaders, who may be of US, French and
English descent. However, they merely represent the exception that confirms
the rule. Nothing can be successfully built thereon; another decade will
pass, the friendly interlocutors will always be friendly, and the subjugated
nations will still be subjugated. This will really be too bad for them.
There is only one correct
conclusion in this regard.
Forget France, England and
The only plausible supporters and
benefactors of Africa’s and Asia’s subjugated and oppressed nations are the
opponents of the evil establishments of the Western world that so much loved
Africa’s and Asia’s subjugated and oppressed nations that forcefully managed
to adjust on them the Hell in which they have been living for many long
More determined an opponent of
the Western world is, greater the help for Africa’s and Asia’s subjugated
and oppressed nations will be if they establish a contact, an understanding
and a cooperation with that establishment, leader or country.
Fake opposition to the West is in
this regard a treacherous path that has to be avoided; today’s extremist
Wahhabi sheikhs are not opponents but supporters of the Western world, even
without understanding it; in fact, they are the best tools of the Western
establishments. In this regard, ideological clarity of purpose, historicity
of the theoretical principles, imperative moral standards, and rich
conceptual thinking matter greatly as criteria.
But from Venezuela to China, from
Bolivia to Russia, and from Belarus to Myanmar, many countries and leaders
would possibly be the best supporters and sponsors of Africa’s and Asia’s
subjugated and oppressed nations. They must therefore become the focus of
diplomatic efforts deployed by Africa’s and Asia’s subjugated and oppressed
nations’ leaders. On this I will expand in several forthcoming articles.
More importantly, I will
republish a letter sent by Aramaean organizations to the President of the
Plurinational State of Bolivia, His Excellency Juan Evo Morales Ayma, on the
occasion of his second term election as the first indigenous president of
the Plurinational State of Bolivia.
Bolivia’s international weight
may not be enough to counterbalance the nefarious colonial involvement in
the Middle East, but their theoretical – ideological arsenal is formidable,
and would greatly contribute to Africa’s and Asia’s subjugated and oppressed
In this regard, the Aramaeans
lead the way toward the introduction of new dynamics in the wider Middle
East region, thus offering an exemplary model of new policy making for all
