米大統領のサウジでの演説は、中東の専制諸国へのゴーサイン、英紙報道

さすが、イギリスは違いますね。マスコミはきちんとトランプのサウジ訪問を批判しています。



イギリスの新聞インディペンデントが、「サウジアラビアでのアメリカのトランプ大統領の演説は、中東地域の専制政権に少数派の弾圧や拷問の継続を許可するゴーサインである」と報じました。

インディペンデント紙は、サウジアラビアの首都リヤドで21日日曜、イスラム諸国の55人の首脳らを相手に行われたトランプ大統領の演説を非難し、「これはエジプトのシシ大統領をはじめとした専制者に、イスラム教徒の同胞の投獄や弾圧を継続してもよいとするゴーサインを出したに等しい」としています。

また、「トランプ大統領によるバーレーンの支配者への賞賛も、大きな危機に直面している同国の現状をさらに悪化させるかも知れない」としました。

そして、「トランプ大統領は歴訪の最初の国として世界で最も専制的な体制を持つサウジを訪問した」としました。

さらに、「この演説を聞いていたのは専制的な支配者らであり、彼は反対派を全てテロリストと見なしている」としています。

そして、「トランプ大統領は選挙運動中に、サウジを9.11テロの実行犯だとしたが、今回のこの演説でその全てが彼の記憶から喪失してしまった」としました。

インディペンデント紙はまた、イスラム社会からのテロの根絶というトランプ大統領の要請についても、「アルカイダに類似したテロ組織の発展の重要な側面の1つは、サウジがワッハーブ派の拡大のためにおよそ半世紀にわたって行ってきた、石油という財産の利用方法に関係している」と報じています。



Donald Trump’s speech to the Muslim world was filled with hypocrisy and condescension





So after inventing “fake news”, America’s crazed President on Sunday gave the world’s Muslims a fake speech. Donald Trump said he was not in Saudi Arabia to “lecture” – but then told the world’s Islamic preachers what to say, condemned “Islamist terrorism” as if violence was a solely Muslim phenomenon and then announced like an Old Testament prophet that he was in “a battle between good and evil”. There were no words of compassion, none of mercy, absolutely not a word of apology for his racist, anti-Muslim speeches of last year.

Even more incredibly, he blamed Iran – rather than Isis – for “fuelling sectarian violence”, pitied the Iranian people for their “despair” a day after they had freely elected a liberal reformer as their president, and demanded the further isolation of the largest Shiite country in the Middle East. The regime responsible for “so much instability” is Iran. The Shiite Hezbollah were condemned. So were the Shiite Yemenis. Trump’s Sunni Saudi hosts glowed with warmth at such wisdom.

And this was billed by CNN as a “reset” speech with the Muslim world. For “reset”, read “repair”, but Trump’s Sunday diatribe in Riyadh was in fact neither a “reset” nor a “repair”. It was the lecture he claimed he would not give.

“Every time a terrorist murders an innocent person, and falsely invokes the name of God, it should be an insult to every person of faith,” he announced, utterly ignoring – as he had to – the fact that Saudi Arabia, not Iran, is the fountainhead of the very Wahhabi Salafist extremism whose “terrorists” murder “innocent people”.

Melania and Ivanka Trump did not wear headscarves for Trump's Saudi speech

He tried to avoid his old racist “radical Islamic extremist” mantra and tried to replace it with “Islamist extremism” but he apparently fluffed his words and said “Islamic” as well. The subtle difference he was trying to make in English was thus for Muslims no more than a variation on a theme: terrorists are Muslims.

All this, let us remember, came after Trump had sewn up yet another outrageous arms deal with the Saudis ($110bn or £84.4bn) and the proposed purchase by Qatar of what Trump obscenely referred to as “a lot of beautiful military equipment”. It seems almost fantastical that he should make such a remark only two days before meeting the Pope who in Cairo two weeks ago railed along with the Muslim Sheikh of Al Azhar against the evil of arms dealers.

“We are adopting a principled realism, rooted in common values and shared interests,” Trump told the Saudis and the leaders of another fifty Muslim nations on Sunday. But what on earth are those values? What values do the Americans share with the head-chopping, misogynist, undemocratic, dictatorial Saudis other than arms sales and oil?

And when Trump said that “our friends will never question our support, and our enemies will never doubt our determination,” were his friends supposed to be the Saudis? Or the “Islamic world” – which should surely include Iran and Syria and Yemen – and the warring militias of Libya? As for “enemies”, was he talking about Isis? Or Russia? Or Syria? Or Iran, whose newly elected president surely wants peace with America? Or was he – as part of the Muslim world will conclude with good reason – declaring his friendship with the Sunni Muslims of the world and his enmity towards the Shia Muslims?
