Ikhras is pleased to announce the winner of the Muntadhar Zaidi Shoe of the Month Award for this August, 2011 is Mustafa Abdul Jalil, former Minister of Justice in the Mouamar Qadhafi regime and the current head of Libya’s National Transitional Council, a body championed and funded by the NATO states and semi-literate, Arab oil-Sheiks. Abdul Jalil began his relationship with the United States while he was still a member of the Qadhafi regime, and was viewed favorably by U.S. diplomats. According to a leaked US diplomatic cable from January 2010 Abdul Jalil was reported to express his support for moving towards a more neo-Liberal economic model, and was thanked by the American Ambassador for his support for various U.S. Government-funded Commercial Law Development Programs designed to push Libya in that direction.
After two Western-backed tyrants were ousted in Tunisia and Egypt and the 2011 Arab uprising reached Libya , Abdul Jalil was plucked by the United States and it’s NATO allies as a pliant tool of the U.S.-orchestrated (in collaboration with the puppet regimes in the American oil-colonies of the Arabian Gulf) counter-revolution. Abdul-Jalil will not arrive in Tripoli (at the time of writing he has not yet arrived due to security concerns) as the leader of a popular uprising. He will enter the Libyan capital as the subservient head of a NATO-installed government of the state with the largest oil reserves in Africa after a popular uprising was hijacked by global imperialism. His first task assigned by the NATO coalition that brought him to power will be to preside over the Western oil companies’ scramble for Libyan oil fields, and contracts to rebuild what NATO bombardment destroyed.
For his role in the American-led counterrevolution in the Arab world , his subservience to global imperialism, and his new status as the Hamid Karzai of Libya, Ikhras is pleased to present Abdul Jalil with the August 2011 Shoe of the Month.
Every month Ikhras awards the Muntadhar Zaidi “Shoe of the month” to the House Arab or Muslim individual or organization in the United States whose behavior that month best exemplifies the behavior of what Malcolm X described, in the language of his own time, as the “house negro” (see video). The award is named in honor of the brave Iraqi journalist Muntadhar Zaidi who threw his shoes at the war criminal George W. Bush at a time House Arabs and Muslims were dining with him at the White House and inviting him to their mosques. Arab dictators and puppets of the empire are also qualified to enter the shoe of the month competition based on their own subservience to U.S.-led global imperialism. Contest guidelines prohibit any one individual or organization from winning the award more than 3 times a year.
