Table Talk

BY Mike S Apostol

Table Talk has a limited view of foreign policies and foreign relations and most importantly in our political science study of foreign policies and relations, they are geared towards nations of consequential importance in economics, science, type of government, military power, industrialization and other aspects of a nation’s status among other nations. Religion and religious belief as part of governance of a nation was a foreign idea in political science but the revolutionary idea of religion to be the governing principle of a nation is accepted by the community of nations not as a new idea, but to follow the wishes a nation’s patrimony. Islamic governments in the world are  as old as civilization itself,  but it has not been aggressive in the very beginning since most of those Islamic nations underwent subjugation by foreign nations like the British, French and other European nations with different culture, civilization and sometimes religion. It was only after the discovery of oil and its importance to the industrialized world and underground reserve of that precious fuel are found in almost all Islamic Nations, it empowered the Arab people and nations and so with their religion Islam.The Arab nations became self sufficient and saw no need of foreign nations to govern them and fought bloodily for their independence and found the Islamic government for their nations and adopted the principles of their Holy Quoran as part of their government, education and laws. The Shariah Law from the Holy Quoran is more than their Constitution if they have any.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei,  Iran’s supreme Islamic leader, recently awarded medals of honor to their navy commanders who arrested American Navy officers and servicemen for intruding into Iranian waters as part of their sinister idea of embarrassing the nuclear power, America, Iran’s arch enemy, but who was once upon time Iran’s ally. American President Barack Obama’s foreign policy with Iran by loosening the screw of economic sanctions and Islamic Iran’s nuclear program, supposedly to ease the problem of world terrorism because allegedly America suspects that Islamic Iran is the biggest financier to the world’s terrorist groups. However Islamic Iran’s foreign policy is far different from American democratic principles. To the Islamic leaders of Iran, they believe no nation can stop them from developing their nuclear capabilities, because it is their right as an independent nation. Very rare Islamic governments adhere to the tenets of International Law and foreign policies if some provisions of these world accepted principles ran counter to their Shariah Law beliefs

In a video, a Palestinian father celebrates the adventure of his son, in stabbing and perhaps killing a member of Israel’s Internal Defense Force (IDF) that went viral in the internet. It made the Israeli leadership gnashing their teeth in anger, but can’t do anything, because of their foreign policy in governing the occupied Palestinian territories. All they can do is lodge a complaintwith the United Nations (UN) which many times went into deaf ears because most members of the UN security Council are allies of Islamic Arab nations or are afraid that terrorists will disturb their tranquil nations.

In another video that went viral in the internet, an Islamic preacher of ISIS believe nations they conquer become the “booty” of war for the ISIS conqueror and under their Shariah Law, they have the right to possess them and divide them equally among their victorious Mujahideen and be made as slaves. men, women and children. Not only the people but to include their wealth, their homes and land must be distributed to the victorious mujahideen. The victorious ISIS are also allowed under their Shariah Law to operate a slave market. When they have no more use of their apportioned slaves, they can sell them in the slave market by “auction sale”. This is to show how reverse is their ideals and principles to our beliefs. Perhaps they are driving to stress a point and change the outlook of the world or simply said they want a change in our present civilization and flash back to the beginning of civilization where the strong and mighty rule the world. Germany’s megalomaniac dictator Adolf Hitler started it by gas poisoning captured Jews that he perceived as weaklings during the holocaust.

Scoop: Is history repeating with the present developments around the world? Or has man became so greedy that the Apocalypse is coming? Climate is now changing and world authorities say that our seas are rising to an alarming level every year. Perhaps it is time for all people to help save our world instead of fighting for new territories and expanding their areas. Agree or disagree.
