Muslims Are Their Own Worst Enemy
By Paul Craig Roberts
Muslims are numerous but powerless. Divisions among Muslims, especially between Sunni and Shi’ites, have consigned the Muslim Middle East to almost a century of Western control. Muslims cannot even play together The Islamic Solidarity Games, a regional version of the Olympics, which were to be held in April in Iran, have been cancelled. Muslim disunity has made it possible for Israel to dispossess the Palestinians, for the U.S. to invade Iraq, and for the U.S. to rule much of the region through puppets. For example, in exchange for faithful service, Egypt receives $1.5 billion a year from Washington, which enables President Mubarak to buy off opposition. The opposition had rather have the money than support the Palestinians. Therefore, Egypt cooperates with Israel and the U.S. in the blockade of Gaza. At Washington's behest, the government of Pakistan is conducting war against its own people, killing many and forcing others to flee their homes and lands.
