“The Road to Happiness” According to Federica Mogherini
by Alexander Maistrovoy
Messianism of the new age: The road to universal happiness lies in the creation of the Palestinian State
Right after taking office, Federica Mogherini, the new EU foreign minister, said she “would be happy if by the end of my term, a Palestinian state existed”. Her words exactly — “would be happy”.
The solution of acute and painful conflict in Ukraine, the destruction of the ISIS, anarchy in Libya, hundreds of thousands of African migrants rushing to Italy (home of Mogherini, by the way), massacre in Syria, the exodus of Christians from Middle East, the stabilization of Lebanon, standing on the brink of chaos — all these are secondary. Her dream is the creation of a Palestinian state. She arrived to Jerusalem and Ramallah only a couple of days after entering the office to demonstrate her stance on the issue.
Mogherini knows that it is a chronic, local, 50-year-old conflict that in reality doesn’t have any impact on the situation in the region, and definitely in the world. She is aware of Kerry’s desperate efforts. Kerry was so confident that Palestine is a winning ticket, a pass to the cherished post-apocalyptic era. He even visited the Holy Land almost every week while forgetting about everything else. Despite all his efforts he suffered a complete fiasco.
Perhaps Mogherini has to consider the pressure from the outside? From the Arabs, for instance? In such a case it would be understandable, however; such conduct can be cowardly and have a sense of ominous associations with Munich. But this is not case. The Arab countries — Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt and Kuwait — nowadays do not even care about Israel. They need to survive, to resist Iran and “jihadists”. The last thing they want is another Hamastan at their borders.
Could it be American pressure? Perhaps. But this situation is unbeneficial for the Europeans. They will have to pay while USA gets all the dividends.
So what is behind Mogherini’s passionate desire and dream? It is neither politics nor interests. It’s the “pursuit of happiness”. It is the irrational religious ideology similar to those of Communist and Nazi. It is the messianic faith that it is possible to radically improve the world by overcoming the main obstacle on the road to happiness. And this obstacle is the “Palestinian problem”.
The messianic ideology of our time is known as Postmodernism, and as every religion, it has own dogmas of faith. They are the following:
Dogma I: Political Correctness. Explanation: White racism and chauvinism, or the Third World is always right
We know about “White savagery” and “White ferocity”*. We know that history of the white race has been an endless spiral of unspeakable horror** and the great European classics of recent centuries are “Dead White European Males” (DWEM).
There is only White racism. There are no such concepts as Black racism and Colored racism.
It is very “moral” to rob and humiliate the South African Boers, even to publicly sing the song “shoot the Boer with machine guns”, as South African President Zuma did. It is very decent to forcibly take away the land from whites as Mugabe has done. No one is interested in all that. Nor the fact that black and colored racism are directed against no other than … black and colored people, too.
In Congo, Pygmies are used as “pets.” In Mauritania the whole population is divided into castes: “White Berbers” — slaveholders, “Black Berbers” — the lower classes and Negros — slaves, who comprise about 600,000 people (about 20% of the population). Girls are married off at the age of 8 to 10 years.
In Zimbabwe, people of the Ndebele tribe suffer from discrimination much more so than whites in Mugabe’s hierarchical system.
In many Third World countries, the fate of women fate is to be sex slaves. Gays, lesbians and transsexuals are persecuted. They are doomed to beatings, stoning, to the most severe humiliations and mockery.
In Pakistan, according to Koranic laws (Hadd), a non-Muslim may testify in court only if the victim is also a non-Muslim. The testimony of women (Muslim or non-Muslim) is not admissible.
All this is irrelevant to the Political Correctness Dogma.
Dogma II: Multiculturalism. The idea of religion is a medieval relic, obscurantism and fanaticism only in regards to Judaism and Christianity
All other religions — Islam, paganism, voodoo, etc — are positive by definition because they are part of national traditions and cultural diversity. Pogroms of Copts by Salafis with the connivance of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt during Mohamed Morsi’s rule; the death penalty for converting to Christianity in Iran, Pakistan and Bangladesh; persecutions of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Pakistan; the burning of Orthodox churches in Kosovo; the bullying of Zoroastrians and Baha’is in Iran; the killing of Mandaeans-Gnostics in Iraq by Islamists — these do not bother anyone.
Churches are forbidden in Saudi Arabia. Buddhist shrines are destroyed in Malaysia. All these are considered normal. It’s definitely not religious fanaticism — it is a part of cultural diversity.
Dogma III: “No” to the National State as long as we speak about the national state in the West only
No one demands it from Third World countries. Nobody requests the monarchies of Persian Gulf countries to grant equal rights to labor migrants from South-East Asia and Africa, who exist like semi-slaves within the sponsorship system. Qatar is a truly multicultural state: out of two million people only 300,000 are locals. The other 1,700,000 people have no rights.
No one insists that Bhutan stop discrimination against the Lhotshampa population, one-fifth of country’s entire population. Nobody brings up the issue of minorities’ rights — of the Hindi and the Chinese — in Malaysia.
Dogma IV: Islamophobia. Initially it was part of the Political Correctness Dogma, but it later became a particular area of sacred knowledge
Currently Muslims are the “Proletariat” of the 21st century, the vanguard of the oppressed population and the progressive class. They are victims of European oppression; “Noble savages” that stand up against the greedy and mercantile West. Edward Said is the Icon of the enlightened world.
“Islamophobes” are distinguished by their relationship to Edward Said. Mentioning the Muslim crimes and wretchedness in history and in our time — the status of “dhimmi”, doubtful Surahs in the Quran, call for the Caliphate, the legitimacy of slavery, pedophilia, female circumcision, etc. — is utterly prohibited.
Dogma V: Conflicts must be resolved immediately and permanently
Philosophers of the Enlightenment believed that by freeing people from the shackles of oppression and giving them wealth, one can stop wars, conflicts and miseries. This was unattainable, and history has proved it repeatedly. Such an illusion was justifiable three hundred years ago, but not today.
The Palestinians are the embodiment of all these Dogmas of faith. They are the personification of anti-colonialism, the virginal purity and righteousness of the Third World. They struggle with the “religious fanaticism” of Jews, who allow themselves to refer to Biblical texts and prophecies. They oppose Zionism — the idea of Jewish nationhood. Their future state is sacred, even if it becomes “Judenrein” and eventually leads to the elimination of Israel. The mere fact that the Palestinians are Muslims grants them holiness, righteousness and virtue. Finally, it is indeed one of the most long-lasting conflicts. The forever longed-for Palestinian state would solve all other conflicts, would provide universal peace, harmony and the triumph of the religion called “post-modernism”.
The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

One belief , more than any other, is responsible for the slaughter of individuals on the altars of the great historical ideals – justice or progress or the happiness of future generations , or the sacred mission or emancipation of a nation or race or class, or even liberty itself, which demands the sacrifice of individuals for the freedom of society. This is the belief that somewhere, in the past or in the future, in divine revelation or in the mind of an individual thinker, in the pronouncements of history or science, or in the simple heart of an uncorrupted good man, there is a final solution. This ancient faith rests on the conviction that all the positive values in which men have believed must, in the end, be compatible, and perhaps even entail one another.

If we are told that these contradictions will be solved in some perfect world in which all good things can be harmonised in principle, then we must answer, to those who say this, that the meanings they attach to the names which for us denote the conflicting values are not ours. We must say that the world in which what we see as incompatible values are not in conflict is a world altogether beyond our ken; that principles which are harmonised in this other world are not the principles with which, in our daily lives, we are acquainted; if they are transformed, it is into conceptions not known to us on earth. But it is on earth that we live, and it is here that we must believe and act. The notion of the perfect whole, the ultimate solution, in which all good things coexist, seems to me to be not merely unattainable – that is a truism – but conceptually incoherent; I do not know what is meant by a harmony of this kind.

What is clear is that values can clash – that is why civilisations are incompatible. They can be incompatible between cultures , or groups in the same culture , or between you and me.

Utopias have their value – nothing so wonderfully expands the imaginative horizons of human potentialities – but as guides to conduct they can prove literally fatal.

Tame infidel dogs are the favorite house pets of the jihadis.
Beat them and they fawn over you even more.
Masochism is at the root of this madness.
Some folks like to be treated like trash.
It’s titillating to the effete uber-jaded.
Self-loathing is their badge of honor.
Being degraded by the tough, aloof, manly “other” is a multi-culti wetdream for the suicidally insane.
(Freud’s “Civilization and Its Discontents” is a useful angle to examine this current cultural psychosis.)
Before I quote her biog let me draw editorial conclusions:
She is a Communist
She was a member of the Communist Party long after irrefutable evidence that it was a dictatorship which had deliberately led to the deaths of millions of people
She is a career politician. After leaving college — when she studied methods of making accommodations to Islam (so much for Communists being atheists) — and entering the machinery of the Communist Party and State apparatus
She’s never had a real job
She and her political sponsor and mentors all joined the CP after uprisings in Hungary (1956) and Czechoslovakia (1968).
Blindness to oppressive regimes, ideas and beliefs and collusion with violent practices run deep in her pedigree
She’s a long standing supporter of the PLO et al and seeks the violent destruction and overthrow of the State of Israel
Communist States which she supported had a record of brutal Anti-Semitism
We (in the majority) Europeans didn’t chose her. The greasy machine did.
Amazingly she’s been touted as ‘the outsider’ when she is as much part of the establishment as any (rich) career politician.
Ridiculously The Telegraph (a supposed right of centre broadsheet in the UK) subheads an article
“Mogherini, a rising star in Italian politics, will help shake up the European gentleman’s club”
There then follows a long, fluff article with no mention of her history and personal belief system. Extraordinary.
So there you have it. A dyed in the wool Communist of the old, Russian dictatorship kind. (Lets’ not mention her marriage to a Gazprom boss and love of Putin). An Anti-Semite Islam-ophile responsible for the future of 100’s millions of Europeans but with a deep hatred of Europe.
Does the population of Europe know they are now led by Comminists? No, of course not. And you have to wonder how the victims of Commiunism in the new European Union states would feel about it.
After all, non of us voted for this horror. Though surely there is much worse to come. You’d be an idiot to live in large swathes of Europe and not feel an underlying aggression, disdain and hatred emanating from the (1000’s) of brothers and sisters one passes all day.
Is it not obvious that if you disarm, denigrate, talk down, attack, disparage the history of, exaggerate the bad and divide one community (the hosts) but elevate, protect, encourage, give lie to, support, fund, and build up another, and if that other has a sense of purpose (from on high), organisation, belief, confidence, history and leadership but the host has leaders who wish defeat upon their side and set out to organise it (say Communists) that it isn’t going to end anywhere but tragedy for the ordinary people in the host nations?
On to the evidence. Nothing more than a read through of Wikipedia, but it seems this is beyond the remit of The Telegraph journalist and editor.
Let us meet Federica Mogherini — the new woman in charge of EU foreign policy:
A member of the Italian Communist Youth Federation from 1988, in 1996 Mogherini joined the Youth Left after the dissolution of the Italian Communist Party before its transformation into a Social Democrat Party.
In 2001 she became a member of the National Council of the Democrats of the Left (DS), later serving on its National Executive Board and Political Committee. In 2003 she started working at the DS’s Foreign Affairs Section, where she was given responsibility for relations with international movements and parties, later becoming the team’s coordinator; after that she was given responsibility for Foreign Affairs and International Relations on the DS Party Chairman’s staff: Piero Fassino.
Piero Fassino was born in 1949. He graduated in Political Sciences and later registered with the Youth Communist Federation of Turin in 1968, becoming their secretary three years later.
After the formation of the Italian Democratic Party (PD), on 4 November 2007, Mogherini was appointed to the staff of its founding chairman Walter Veltroni (with whom she had already worked as assistant during his term as Mayor of Rome).
In 1970 Walter Veltroni joined the Federazione Giovanile Comunista Italiana (Italian Youth Communist Federation) at the age of 15, and was elected Rome city councilor in 1976 as member of the Italian Communist Party, serving until 1981.
Mogherini attended the Sapienza University of Rome where she studied Political Science graduating with a Diploma in Political Philosophy with a thesis entitled “Relationship between religion and politics in Islam”
… though she has since removed pictures of her 2002 visit with Yasser Arafat from her blog, there remains speculation that Mogherini’s sympathies may not be entirely neutral (!!!), and possibly anti the state of Israel (!!!). The pictures of the pair together remain widely available.
There is another aspect to this article not touched on by the author. The pretence of ‘seeming’ to do something to alleviate an obvious problem that the Collective has no immediate or future answer for. Andrew Bolt often covers the ‘seeming’ side of the Collective in his articles as a means to point out their empty headed solutions to the many problems that pop up from time to time by throwing money at them. The ‘victim’ groups are a case in point in that while the dogma that makes the ‘victim groups’ can never be refuted by the collectivist, there is no solution for the problem that the Collective itself has generated within the ‘victim groups’ – unless we understand where useful idiots all end up when the Collective has finished with them.
