MEMRI Special Dispatch- No. 2247 02/16/09

Abdallah Al-Nafisi, a Kuwaiti professor, had his speech broadcast by Al-Jazeera TV February 2. The following is a transcript of the English sub titles.

Four pounds of anthrax in a suitcase this big – carried by a fighter through tunnels from Mexico into the U.S. are guaranteed to kill 330,000 Americans within a single hour, if it is properly spread in population centers there What a horrifying idea. 9/11 will be small change in comparison. Am I right? There is no need for airplanes, conspiracies, timings, and so on. One person, with the courage to carry four pounds of anthrax, will go to the White House lawn, and will spread this “confetti” all over them, and then will do these cries of joy. It will turn into a real “celebration.”

The WMD is a problem. The Americans are afraid that the WMDs might fall into the hands of “terrorist” organizations like Al-Qaeda and others. There is good reason for the American’s fears, because Al-Qaeda used to have in the Herat region… it had laboratories in north Afghanistan. They have scientists, chemists and nuclear physicists. They are nothing like they are portrayed by these mercenary journalists – backward Bedouins living in caves. No, no. By no means. This kind of talk can fool only naive people. People who follow such things know that Al-Qaeda has laboratories just like Hizbullah.

Hizbullah has laboratories in South Lebanon, in which it produces weapons and sells them. Hizbullah has laboratories in South Lebanon, from which it sells weapons to Romania and Hungary.

If they call someone a terrorist, say: “He’s a friend of mine.” Why? Because these “terrorists” are the world’s most God-fearing people. They are the most honorable people in the world, the best people in the world. [Applause.] I have personally met Mullah Omar. I had the honor of meeting with Mullah Omar. This is a man who does not belong to this era. He always refused to meet with Western delegations. He would say to them: “Go to Kabul, I am in Qandahar.” “Truly, the polytheists are impure” – if you know what I mean. “Go meet the Foreign minister to talk politics, I am staying here. ” This is the kind of people who are suitable for dealing with the West. As for Arafat, Dahlan, and their ilk – they do not benefit the nation in any way.

In the US, there are more than 300,000 militia members, who are calling to attack the federal government in Washington, and to banish the Arabs, the Jews, and the negoes (sic) from the US. These are racist people. They are called “rednecks.” The Ku Klux Klan. They are racists. These militias even think about bombing nuclear plants within the US. May Allah grant them success, [Laughter.] even though we are not white, or even close to it, right? They have plans to bomb the nuclear plant at Lake Michigan. This plant is very important. It supplies electricity to all of North Africa (sic). May Allah grant success to one of these militia leaders, who is thinking about bombing this plant. I believe that we should devote part of our prayers to him. We should pray that Allah grants him success, so he can complete this mission, and we will be able to visit him and congratulate him, Allah willing.

Allah stated in the Koran that the hostility between us and (the Jews) is eternal. So whoever talks about Dialogue – cut off his tongue! What Dialogue are they talking about?! There is no room for Dialogue. Allah said that our hostility toward the Jews is eternal, and then along comes someone and talks about brotherhood and so on…. Anyone who contradicts the Koran is an infidel. Accusing people of heresy? Yes. I’m all for it. Yes, I support accusing people of heresy.

We should also defend the resistance, and not remain silent in the face of this organized campaign against the resistance, in the press of the Arabian Peninsula and the Gulf, and other Arab newspapers. Thee are voices expressing doubts about the leaders of the resistance. We must confront these (journalists) and prevent them from continuing this, even if it means calling them over the phone, and saying to them: “Do not repeat these despicable things in your columns or your articles, or else we will take the following measures against you.” We must resort to pressure with these people. We must not remain silent. We must not leave them to their own devices under the pretext of freedom of expression. This is a fifth column. I, abdullah Fahd Abd Al-Aziz Al-Nafisi, am inciting you to confront, using any means possible, anyone who speaks out against the resistance. Any means possible” – get it?

The Hamas ministers are mujahideen, I know a minister who actually participated in operations.

In Special Dispatch- No. 2281, 03/16/09, MEMRI quotes three “liberal” critics of Abdallah Al-Nafisi. One of them, columnist Ahmad Al-Sarraf, had this to say.

“More importantly, what would we, the Arabs and the Muslims, or [anyone else], gain if a religious fanatic carried out to the letter what this ‘great thinker’ said? For example, would the world be a more just, good, and peaceful place, or would this be this be the first sign of the coming of the awaited Mahdi, [who is said to arrive] when the world is filled with injustice and oppression?

“What would be the response of the U.S. government and its people if we killed 330,000 innocent Americans in a single hour? Would we then become capable of getting Palestine back from the Israelis, the [UAE] islands back from the Iranians, Alexandretta back from the Turks, and Andalus back from the Spaniards? And what good would all that be if nuclear bombs fell on our heads and destroyed the little that is good in our countries?

What are those, if not pragmatic arguments? Concern is expressed about outcomes, expected failure and possible retaliation. Where is the condemnation based on the intrinsic immorality of the proposal?

“And are our feelings and emotions so dead that we are not bothered by [the prospect of] the death of 330,000 innocent Americans in a single hour – among whom may well be some of our own people, and true friends – just because the government of this country has helped one of our enemies? And as though we ourselves haven’t been our own enemy for hundreds of years? Oh logic, oh reason: how beautiful you are, and how rare.”

The writer implies enmity to Israel, does he object to attacks against her as well? Would he have responded in this manner if Al-Nafsi had suggested an attack on Tel Aviv? Notice the qualifier: “innocent Americans”. Are there “guilty Americans” who should be killed? Is Ahmad aware that Allah considers all Non-Muslims to be sinners who must be humiliated, punished and subjugated?

Dr. Al-Nafisi is a citizen of Kuwait, a nation with good reason to have a favorable attitude towards the USA. The speech was delivered to a an approving audience in Bahrain, another supposedly “moderate” Muslim nation.


Little Known Food and Water Safety Recipes

Disinfect Drinking Water:

Add 1/8 teaspoon (or 8 drops) of regular, unscented, liquid household bleach for each gallon of water, stir it well and let it stand for 30 minutes before you use it.

Right after 9/11 and the subsequent Anthrax scare, I read an article in the Fort Worth Star Telegram by two microbiologists stating that adding equal parts of household bleach and white vinegar to water would increase the disinfectant power of drinking water. (I’ve lost that article and have been unable to find it anywhere on the internet.) I’ve added equal parts of white vinegar and household bleach to our drinking water (see above for ratio) with no ill effects.

Warning: Adding Vinegar directly to bleach creates deadly Chlorine gas.

For City Slickers Too:

In the event of an emergency, and you can’t trust your public water supply, do the above to your water before drinking. After letting the water stand for 30 minutes, pour it into a gravity ceramic filter. Several brands are available on the internet. They are a little costly up front but a good one will take out over 99% of all sediment and pathogens and will save you big $$$ in the long run. Plus, you can take your ceramic filter on camping trips and you don’t need electricity. I’ve been using one brand since 9/11 and it works better than our old reverse osmosis filter.

Clean and Soak Produce before Eating:

When cleaning fresh produce I use equal parts (8 drops each) of chlorine bleach and white vinegar to a gallon of water for a 20 minute soak. Then I soak my veggies again for a few minutes in clear water before spinning dry. Yes, this does have a tendency to wilt lettuce and spinach, but you won’t end up hospitalized with E. Coli.

Surface DisinfectantKilling Power Of Bleach Increased By Vinegar (article refers to surface disinfectants only)

Adding white vinegar to diluted household bleach greatly increases the disinfecting power of the solution, making it strong enough to kill even bacterial spores. Researchers from MicroChem Lab, Inc. in Euless, Texas, report their findings today at the 2006 ASM Biodefense Research Meeting.

Sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) in the form of laundry bleach is available in most households. The concentrate is about 5.25 to 6 percent NaOCl, and the pH value is about 12. Sodium hypochlorite is stable for many months at this high alkaline pH value.

“Laundry bleach is commonly diluted about 10 to 25-fold with tap water to about 2000 to 5000 parts per million of free available chlorine for use as an environmental surface disinfectant, without regard to the pH value of the diluted bleach. However, the pH value is very important for the antimicrobial effectiveness of bleach,” says Norman Miner, a researcher on the study.

At alkaline pH values of about 8.5 or higher, more than 90 percent of the bleach is in the form of the chlorite ion (OCl-), which is relatively ineffective antimicrobially. At acidic pH values of about 6.8 or lower, more than 80 percent of the bleach is in the form of hypochlorite (HOCl). HOCl is about 80 to 200 times more antimicrobial than OCl-.

“Bleach is a much more effective antimicrobial chemical at an acidic pH value than at the alkaline Ph value at which bleach is manufactured and stored. A small amount of household vinegar is sufficient to lower the pH of bleach to an acidic range,” says Miner.

Miner and his colleagues compared the ability of alkaline (pH 11) and acidified (pH 6) bleach dilutions to disinfect surfaces contaminated with dried bacterial spores, considered the most resistant to disinfectants of all microbes. The alkaline dilution was practically ineffective, killing all of the spores on only 2.5 percent of the surfaces after 20 minutes. During the same time period the acidified solution killed all of the spores on all of the surfaces.

“Diluted bleach at an alkaline pH is a relatively poor disinfectant, but acidified diluted bleach will virtually kill anything in 10 to 20 minutes,” says Miner. “In the event of an emergency involving Bacillus anthracis spores contaminating such environmental surfaces as counter tops, desk and table tops, and floors, for example, virtually every household has a sporicidal sterilant available in the form of diluted, acidified bleach.”

Miner recommends first diluting one cup of household bleach in one gallon of water and then adding one cup of white vinegar.
