Barry web it is news Tuesday August 14th

0:00:03.149,0:00:06.390
I know that you’ve got a great list for

0:00:04.799,0:00:08.519
us why don’t you just take it away and

0:00:06.390,0:00:11.580
let us know what people in the

0:00:08.519,0:00:15.389
Anglosphere need to know from Arabic

0:00:11.580,0:00:17.100
language news okay first I want to start

0:00:15.389,0:00:21.170
with Sudan as you know there’s been this

0:00:17.100,0:00:23.550
big ongoing demonstrations and riots

0:00:21.170,0:00:25.529
with the people on one side and the

0:00:23.550,0:00:28.740
middle of Turan the other and it has

0:00:25.529,0:00:32.300
gotten bloody from time to time well

0:00:28.740,0:00:35.880
they finally reached an agreement the

0:00:32.300,0:00:38.430
the rebuttal rebelling people would call

0:00:35.880,0:00:42.149
themselves the rotary Oh to Kadir which

0:00:38.430,0:00:44.370
means freedom and change have negotiated

0:00:42.149,0:00:47.070
with military yeah yeah transitional

0:00:44.370,0:00:48.809
agreement which has been signed so

0:00:47.070,0:00:52.079
apparently that that situation is

0:00:48.809,0:00:54.140
starting to sell down now but before the

0:00:52.079,0:00:58.949
ink was even dry on that agreement

0:00:54.140,0:01:02.670
Vladimir Putin inserted himself and the

0:00:58.949,0:01:08.340
Russians have just obtained agreement to

0:01:02.670,0:01:10.770
establish a naval base in Sudan and

0:01:08.340,0:01:14.040
they’re also negotiating now with

0:01:10.770,0:01:16.890
Eritrea to set up an air base in Eritrea

0:01:14.040,0:01:18.270
which is also nearby so now yeah last

0:01:16.890,0:01:21.750
week you could remember we talked about

0:01:18.270,0:01:24.960
the Russians setting up to huge bases

0:01:21.750,0:01:26.790
naval bases and Iran and now they’re

0:01:24.960,0:01:28.740
moving into Africa with a couple of

0:01:26.790,0:01:34.560
bases so I think you know that’s rather

0:01:28.740,0:01:39.270
interesting no the other has come up is

0:01:34.560,0:01:41.400
that they’ve been reporting on this one

0:01:39.270,0:01:44.420
of the rich friends of Trump and I

0:01:41.400,0:01:47.310
forgotten his name but he apparently has

0:01:44.420,0:01:51.180
either listened and been listening to

0:01:47.310,0:01:53.790
our stuff or somehow picked up on how

0:01:51.180,0:01:57.090
Qatar has been purchasing influence in

0:01:53.790,0:01:59.280
the West and exerting unto undue

0:01:57.090,0:02:02.549
influence in the way we think and make

0:01:59.280,0:02:07.740
decisions and he is apparently trying to

0:02:02.549,0:02:12.510
convince Trump that Qatar is a part of a

0:02:07.740,0:02:13.110
new axis of evil well I’m very glad you

0:02:12.510,0:02:15.240
hear that

0:02:13.110,0:02:18.450
it most certainly is is there any

0:02:15.240,0:02:22.080
movement on that a nut from Trump

0:02:18.450,0:02:24.000
standpoint at this point now but that’s

0:02:22.080,0:02:29.160
something we can watch for even in there

0:02:24.000,0:02:31.410
yeah the American press and also the

0:02:29.160,0:02:33.510
next question of course is will there be

0:02:31.410,0:02:38.400
any part of Africa that is unknown

0:02:33.510,0:02:40.500
devisor China or Russia is the next

0:02:38.400,0:02:42.660
question and now one thing you have to

0:02:40.500,0:02:44.400
say from Adam or Putin he doesn’t let

0:02:42.660,0:02:46.170
any grass grow under his feet I mean

0:02:44.400,0:02:51.450
they say as soon as that ink was dry on

0:02:46.170,0:02:52.860
that agreement he was there but you

0:02:51.450,0:02:55.320
mentioned China yeah and I just heard

0:02:52.860,0:02:58.170
something just this – this morning the

0:02:55.320,0:03:03.480
other day but people and Africa are

0:02:58.170,0:03:04.680
getting tired of the Chinese well I

0:03:03.480,0:03:07.650
don’t think they’re gonna be able to do

0:03:04.680,0:03:11.940
much about it that’s what I think yeah

0:03:07.650,0:03:13.920
but there’s interesting no so what else

0:03:11.940,0:03:16.830
have you got from us from the Middle

0:03:13.920,0:03:18.390
East and and the Arabic world which I

0:03:16.830,0:03:23.130
guess at this point includes a good

0:03:18.390,0:03:24.930
third of England yeah you got that right

0:03:23.130,0:03:27.930
you keep coming up with this thing to

0:03:24.930,0:03:30.600
make me laugh one of the documents a

0:03:27.930,0:03:33.860
since you are there are names I sent you

0:03:30.600,0:03:38.940
couple days ago I had to do with the

0:03:33.860,0:03:42.120
Islamist movements and how the dictators

0:03:38.940,0:03:44.910
in the Arab world and each time they try

0:03:42.120,0:03:47.250
to crush the Islamist movement it

0:03:44.910,0:03:52.620
springs back up stronger ever then

0:03:47.250,0:03:54.209
before the you know that the person that

0:03:52.620,0:03:56.900
wrote that article is actually correct

0:03:54.209,0:04:01.830
it does bring up stronger than before

0:03:56.900,0:04:04.590
but my view is there that this is an

0:04:01.830,0:04:07.680
historical trend which can be traced

0:04:04.590,0:04:11.010
back to the withdrawal of the Europeans

0:04:07.680,0:04:13.980
as I think I’ve mentioned before because

0:04:11.010,0:04:16.820
well you know the European colonization

0:04:13.980,0:04:20.579
was actually brought about because of

0:04:16.820,0:04:24.599
the Islamic slave rating in booty rating

0:04:20.579,0:04:26.100
along the coast of Europe and with this

0:04:24.599,0:04:28.920
Barbary pirates

0:04:26.100,0:04:30.630
yeah the Barbary pirates exactly and it

0:04:28.920,0:04:33.300
was to put a stop to that that they

0:04:30.630,0:04:35.700
decided to one way to do that is to to

0:04:33.300,0:04:38.190
take these excuse me my friends these

0:04:35.700,0:04:45.030
fuckers over and you know put a stop to

0:04:38.190,0:04:48.210
it which they did and the subjects of

0:04:45.030,0:04:50.640
those countries then kind of in terms of

0:04:48.210,0:04:57.350
their interpretation of Islam begin to a

0:04:50.640,0:05:00.870
to mimic their Western conquerors and

0:04:57.350,0:05:02.970
the that the Islam that they were

0:05:00.870,0:05:04.890
practicing was not a true Islam it’s

0:05:02.970,0:05:07.530
more like what I call a Disneyland Islam

0:05:04.890,0:05:11.670
it was an imitation of Christianity and

0:05:07.530,0:05:15.000
many of the Muslims that grew up in the

0:05:11.670,0:05:18.870
40s 50 60s even after the colonization

0:05:15.000,0:05:21.060
ended grew up believing that that

0:05:18.870,0:05:25.830
Disneyland form of Islam was the real

0:05:21.060,0:05:29.130
Islam but now the further we get away

0:05:25.830,0:05:31.710
from the age of colonization which ended

0:05:29.130,0:05:34.170
in the 50s and early 60s the further we

0:05:31.710,0:05:37.070
get away from that in terms of time the

0:05:34.170,0:05:41.070
more we’re going to see real Islam

0:05:37.070,0:05:43.590
reestablished to self and replace the

0:05:41.070,0:05:47.520
Disneyland Islam and by real Islam I

0:05:43.590,0:05:50.040
mean the Islam that Muhammad taught in

0:05:47.520,0:05:52.620
the second century and Eastland that the

0:05:50.040,0:05:54.960
Ottoman Empire used to conquer and

0:05:52.620,0:05:57.170
re-conquer Andry conquer as much of the

0:05:54.960,0:06:00.360
world as they could march or sail to

0:05:57.170,0:06:03.570
yeah and the real islam is also the

0:06:00.360,0:06:05.310
islam of Isis and al-qaeda and the

0:06:03.570,0:06:08.340
Muslim Brotherhood and all these other

0:06:05.310,0:06:10.670
groups so that kind of answers that

0:06:08.340,0:06:10.670
question

0:06:12.560,0:06:15.620
