U.S State Department Steps Up its Propaganda 2.0 Campaign Launches its Arabic Twitter Account

12 Feb, 2011

The U.S government suffers from “Dissociative identity disorder,” or multi-persona disorder. Publicly they talk about democracy, human rights, liberty and the right of nations to rule themselves and decide their future . Yet in practice the consecutive US administrations “Democrats or Republican” have been the historical backers of brutal dictatorship and police states in the Muslim world and non-Muslim world, alike.

From Tunisia to Egypt, the U.S governments has backed both regimes, in a recent Wikileaks leaked U.S diplomatic cables that provide a glimpses of the relationship of both oppressive: the FBI has been providing training to Egypt’s state security ‘torturers’ the state security and investigative service (SSIS).

Historically U.S governments have been supporting the state of “Israel” for decades in monetary funding that are being used to build new settlements on land that has been confiscated from the indigenous inhabitants of the land, and in advanced weapons used to kill Palestinians.
Yet in another evidence that the U.S government “under Bush or Obama “call for democracy is baseless the U.S government did not acknowledge the outcome of the last free parliamentary elections in west bank and Gaza!

In Iraq the government of the United States of America killed 2 million Muslims and Christian Iraqis in the name of freeing them ( according to International human right organizations) . And yet after the Iraqi resistance taught them the real lesson of freedom, they started withdrawing ( not finished withdrawing there are still thousands of US troops in Iraq) their troops and yet another deception, they handed the occupation to 100,000 or so of international mercenary forces and to a poppet Iraqi government and army.

So to conceal all their crimes against Muslims and Arabs and to help them win the propaganda war or what they call the “battle of hearts and minds.” Officials of the U.S states dep. are joining Twitter to “engage” “ it is to deceive” the world specially Muslims.

The latest U.S state dep., engagement (deception) effort with Muslims and Arabs is via launching an official Arabic account @USAbilAraby which its first tweet says:

“U.S state dep. acknowledge the role social media plays in the Arab world and we would like to be part of your discussion”

and that discussion to them are now in the forms of Tweets to deceive the Arab public opinion about what the U.S government is doing, as the account was tweeting about the need of change in Egypt praising the Egyptian revolution and so forth….

Oh Ya we believe you!

Political propaganda has entered a new chapter today, it is now Propaganda 2.0. courtesy of Hillary Clinton – Secretary of hypocrisy and miss-leading the public .

    The US is a hellish country according to you. I wonder why so many Arabs want to come here? And why don’t Americans try to leave? It’s all very confusing. But thank you for providing these “news and views” so that everyone knows that America is the worst country on earth.

    @craig Egyptians hated the regime in Egypt because it was corrupt and brutal but they did not hate Egypt it self. Like wise Arabs and many people around the world and like many Americans hate the US government but not America it self.

    If the American government change its foreign policy that is unjust then all will be good.

    Ahmed, I think the inherent unfairness of this post and so many others I’ve seen like it constitute evidence that the animosity of THIS blogger, and many like him, is directed at America and/or Americans, and not at US government policy. I don’t think I’ve ever seen criticism of the Syrian government, or of the Libyan government, on an Arab blog. And I know that I’ve never seen criticism of Iran for its support of the Syrian regime. To go even further, since I realize there are political considerations(Israel) behind that silence in regards to Syria, Lybia, Iran,etc… I’ve never seen any criticism of France for its support of Arab countries that are in its sphere of influence, either.

    And then there’s the case of Saddam in Iraq. Never criticized by Arabs, even when he committed atrocities on Iraq’s Kurdish population for 15 years straight, even after he massacred Shia in their tens of thousands in teh early 1990s. Not only that lack of criticism, but he was lionized as an Arab hero and a martyr when Iraqis executed him for those crimes.

    And even in regards to Egypt – can you direct me to posts where this blogger has savaged Mubarak for what Mubarak did, rather than savaging the US for what Mubarak did?

    Ahmed: …and like many Americans hate the US government…

    I’m in my 40s and I’ve lived here most my life. I’ve never met an American who hates the US government. I don’t know where you get that information from but it’s not correct to say “many” Americans hate their government.

    @Craig ..With great power comes great responsibility..its a simple but an effectively true concept. Saddam and Mubarrak are tin-pot dictators, and while are lot of their actions were obscene and oppressive, in the long span of things they mean nothing. Even if you are adamant about bencmarking your country’s foreign policy performance to these standards, then Bush and his cronies were still markedly more brutal than Saddam and Mubarak to Arabs – killing millions of Arabs during the sanctions and hundred of thousands during the invasion of Iraq and not to mention Palestine. But there lies the problem; Saddam was hanged and Mubarrak is on his way to court while Bush is in a ranch in Texas enjoying the money he stole from the Iraqi people and the US taxpayer. And the Americans voted for this criminal and these crazy neo-cons not once but twice. A lot of good things have come from America; awesome movies, great people like Albert Einstein and Mark Zucerberg to name just a few. But your foreign policy and your sacrocant support of Israel has dragged your reputation in the garbage globally; and I do hope for your own self interest you will change this sick foreign policy

    Sameh, I reject all that talk about “reputation” and having it be dragged through the mud, and most of your claims about what America has been responsible too. As bad as America may be, everyone else is worse. No exceptions.
