The GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) organization of regional cooperation needs to become mobilized to the cause of responsible democratization and responsible liberalization in the Arabian subcontinent in endeavoring to give rise to a regional federation as based on the major natively spoken Amiyyah language and indigenous reversion to regional forms of Median Judaism as tragically suppressed by religious imperialism indeed.
The major Semitic language of Amiyyah supplanted Arabic in the Arabian subcontinent many centuries ago and Arabic was never a major natively spoken language outside of Arabia. Amiyyah which is natively spoken in West Asia, Egypt, North Sudan and Chad is to Arabic what Romance languages are to Latin, namely an historical continuation whereby a now dead language developed into a new language. The vibrant and living language of Amiyyah therefore is the historical continuation of the dead Arabic albeit now a very different language. Although the historical ethnonym “Arab” survived in the names of some tribes in MENA countries is the notion of speakers of Amiyyah and Dariyyah as purportedly being “Arabs” am anachronistic European social construction whereby a remote past was projected onto much later eras. Indeed, European traders traversing the Mediterranean Sea in their prejudicial ignorance actually believed that speakers of Amiyyah and Dariyyah were somehow ancient “Arabs” and this myth like so many other myths has unfortunately gained a career of its own in the history of myth and prejudice.
Median Judaism as founded by the Israelites exiled by Assyria survived within the new religion of Zoroastrianism and so spread immensely through the travels in trade worldwide of the Median Kohanim (“the Magi” from Hebrew Maggid). The travelling Maggid Kohanim were certainly not religious imperialists and they often settled in cultures whom they encountered and interacted with, gave rise to religious syncretism and themselves became hereditary priests within those traditional religions.
This is still reflected in regional religious diversity in Arabia. The Zaydis of northwest Yemen and southwest Saudi Arabia are however a special case in being descended from the Southern Jurisdiction of Judah in the form of the Jewish Himyarite Kingdom, much of whose population converted to Judaism of the Southern Jurisdiction. The Twelver Shias of the Gulf region are descended from Qarmatians and even some Sunnis of the region (including the Bahraini royal family) do remain Crypto-Qarmatians until this day. The Qarmatians were Ismailites and Ismailites are Crypto-Jews as Ismailism is a form of Crypto-Judaism of the Northern Jurisdiction and originated Alevi-Bektashi Judaism. As Judaism itself historically originated in Sumerian religion did the Qarmatians seek to resurrect the Sumerian economic model of society. What became known as Hanbalism and later morphed into Wahhabism/Salafism originated in a highly conservative form of Median Judaism in the Najd Desert region of central Arabia. The Saudi royal family of Najd and the Hashemite royal family of Mecca historical emerged as Kohanite tribes of the Northern Jurisdiction and so did religious and political functions of those tribes become closely intertwined. The city of Tarim in Yemen is famous for its high concentration of Sayyids (persons claiming patrilineal ancestry from mythological Ali) but are as other Sayyids largely descended from Levites (mostly from the Northern Jurisdiction) as the original Levites (still surviving as Mandaeans/Sabians) originated in the ruling elite of ancient Sumer. The religiously predominant Ibadis of Oman represent yet another continuation of regional forms of Median Judaism and so religious diversity generally in Arabia is a reflection of its religious history including regional diversity in Median Judaism (often outwardly forms of Zoroastrianism) as prior to enforced Islamization.
The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) has with much success pioneered regional cooperation and the current GCC confederation needs to become increasingly transformed into a federal structure. Islam during the course of the 20th century was modernized with considerable success, yet much of this progress has been reversed by the increasingly pervasive and indeed highly destructive influence of the modern totalitarian political ideology of Islamism which in the 20th century morphed into a synthesis of traditional political Islam with strong influences from Nazism and Communism. Islam thus has increasingly become a shell of oppression and hypocrisy as Jihadism discredits Islamism and Islamism discredits Islam itself. E.g. are most men in GCC countries now functionally bisexual and this is in practice completely socially tolerated. Islam is increasingly about outward appearance only as Western sexual subcultures rapidly spread in Islamdom thanks the Internet. It is frequently assumed that a girl/women wearing Islamic religious dress (including religious head covering) is indicative of her being religious but this is contrary to this common assumtion indeed often not the case.
The royal families of GCC countries and a rapidly growing proportion of their citizens simply no longer believe in Islam. The Internet is increasingly overturning the privileged epistemological monopoly of Islam in Arabia specifically and in Islamdom generally as information is now freely available and Internet censorship is typically not especially difficult to circumvent. Islam is therefore increasingly effectively collapsing inside the minds of Muslims who are rapidly becoming munafiqun, meaning only outwardly Muslims and therefore according to Sharia not Muslims at all.
Regional integration in GCC countries needs to move towards a federal structure as based creating denominational states as geared towards facilitating local communal reversions to indigenous regional forms of Median Judaism. This new federation in Arabia needs to become known as Amistan (meaning the land of the Amiyyah language). Of course this is not intended to create regional theocracies as democracy and culture need to become increasingly disconnected but is rather intended to help the people embrace their own colonized indigenous heritage as fully existing prior to the tragically enforced Islamization. Local communal reversions to indigenous regional forms of Median Judaism is an essential part of paving the way for the incremental introduction of open society and liberal democracy which importantly must not be tolerant of or open to any form of totalitarianism such as the modern political ideology of Islamism.
The peoples of South Arabia spoke completely different languages from the Arabic of Antiquity and the early medieval period and these South Semitic languages need to be revived and strengthened indeed. South Arabian languages are still spoken in Yemen and Oman and these contemporary linguistic forms of South Semitic include the speech communities of Bathari, Harsusi, Hobyot, Mehri, Razihi, Shehri and Soqotri. Revived languages of South Arabia need to result in the creation of new linguistic states of those languages and should therefore not form part of Amistan at all.
The Saudi polity was founded in the 18th century as a certain arrangement of political cohabitation between the Saudi family and the Wahhabi sect whereby power was effectively shared between family and clerics. This arrangement continued in contemporary times with Wahhabi intelligence services using fossil fuel revenues to spread Sunni Islamism worldwide. The most prominent of those Wahhabi intelligence services are 1) what is known as “the Muslim Brotherhood” movement, the world’s largest and therefore most dangerous Islamist movement 2) as well as Salafi intelligence which in addition to spreading Salafism/Wahhabism worldwide controls the Salafi armed entities and Salafi terrorist organizations, including the various branches of al Qaida worldwide, the Islamic State Caliphate, the Taliban of Afghanistan/Pakistan and Boko Haram of Nigeria. There is another Wahhabi intelligence service that promotes Islamism within Sufism worldwide and further Wahhabi intelligence services with yet other tasks including the religious police in Saudi Arabia. Although Iran has deployed similar strategies in endeavoring to control Shia Islam worldwide and transform it into the modern political ideology of Shia Islamism are global activities of Wahhabi intelligence highly harmful, detrimental and destabilizing to a very significant degree as most armed conflicts worldwide involve proxies of Wahhabi intelligence.
Regional integration among GCC countries as leading towards the establishment of a federal Amistan are thus not only essential to successfully incremental democratization and liberalization in those jurisdictions specifically and in Islamdom generally but importantly also to peace and security worldwide. The clerical influence over politics in GCC countries need to be decreased and eliminated and the royal families of those lands have an essential role to play in processes of liberalization and democratization in terms of providing both pro-democratic leadership and the imprimatur of political legitimacy for open society and liberal democracy. In order to succeed in countries without a popular consensus as based on the value system of liberal democracy needs this value system become anchored in traditional structures of signification and social organization as is successfully being done in Somaliland and Rojava (West Kurdistan in Syria). Royal families in GCC countries as once in Europe and in former constitutional monarchies (Egypt, Iraq and Tunisia) and remaining constitutional monarchies (Jordan and Morocco) of the MENA region outside of the GCC have an essential role to play in the gradual devolution of powers to genuinely pro-democratic and democratically elected representatives in fully and completely avoiding the tragic trap of quickie elections which tends to become a gift to existential and often totalitarian enemies of open society who sadly tend to exploit premature elections in order establish new forms of tyranny.
The evolution of the GCC into a federal Amistan is therefore essential not only to the peoples of the Arabian subcontinent but also to the world whose democratic leaders need to lend personal, psychological, social and diplomatic support to the royal families of GCC in sharing democratic skills and democratic experience on the path to indigenous reversion to regional forms of Median Judaism and the incrementally successful establishment of open society and liberal democracy.
