Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu certainly knows how to return a favor. To express his gratitude for the United States having engaged in laborious 17 month multilateral negotiations that succeeded in eliminating Iran’s ability to construct a nuclear weapon, Netanyahu is now demanding more money from Washington because the agreement has, in his esteemed opinion, made Israel more vulnerable. As Israel is already the largest recipient of United States military assistance at $3.1 billion a year the jump to $5 billion might seem relatively inconsequential, but for Netanyahu it will mean that 25% of his entire defense budget will now come from the United States, enabling Israel to free up funds to provide free university education and medical treatment for its citizens, something that the American taxpayers who come up with the money do not enjoy. And our government has repeatedly expressed its disapproval of the Israeli settlements for the building of which there is no shortage of funds in the Israeli budget, some of which surely comes from us. We are helping them to do what we ask them not to do. Insanity?

And it seems that beyond that there is no limit to Israel’s own particular form of expressing “thank you America.” Even as Israel prepares to accept the additional money it seems disinclined to restrain either its actions or its rhetoric towards anyone who questions its behavior, including the President of the United States. One would think the prospect of receiving an extra $20 billion dollars would produce at least a little moderation but the Israeli government appears to be intent on sending a message to the Barack Obama White House telling the world who is really in charge.

Last Tuesday, with Netanyahu off attending a meeting of global movers and shakers in Davos Switzerland, the Israeli government announced that it would be seizing from Arab owners 380 acres of arable land near Jericho in the Jordan River valley. The land has been up until now considered an Israeli Army security zone so even though it was Palestinian property the owners were not allowed to use it. Settlers are reportedly already encroaching on the land and it will no doubt soon transition into a new settlement bloc with the blessing of the military and government. Israel has also announced the destruction of West Bank buildings used by Bedouin tribesmen that were financed by the European Union (E.U.), presumably so it can declare the land vacant, permitting its annexation to construct permanent homes for Israeli Jews.

The seizure and demolitions produced predictable protests from the Europeans, the Arab League, the Palestinians themselves and also from Washington. But as in the case of the all too fungible money flowing incessantly from Washington, Israel’s having already stolen tens of thousands of acres of Arab land on the West Bank while planting something like 600,000 illegal settlers, many in heavily guarded compounds, a few hundred more acres matters little. But that would be to ignore the essentially political reality that the Netanyahu government always responds to critics by taking the offensive, in this case carrying out actions that are gross violations of international law a few days before a U.S. delegation is due to arrive in Tel Aviv to discuss Israel’s new aid package. It demonstrates Israel’s contempt for the interests and sensitivities of the United States.

Indeed, Netanyahu does not behave as he does because he is compelled to do so or has some good reason for responding to critics disparagingly. He does so because standing up to the world community enhances his political stature among his extreme right wing supporters in Israel, who rejoice in telling critics that they do not care one bit about the increasing international sentiment condemning their behavior. And Netanyahu knows he can in reality behave with impunity because he de facto owns the U.S. Congress and the mainstream media and has said as much, noting that for him “I know what America is. America is a thing you can move very easily, move it in the right direction. They won’t get in the way.”

Several recent incidents demonstrate the Netanyahu disdain for the opinion of the United States as well of the rest of the world. U.S. Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro was on the receiving end of Bibi’s wrath when he commented that “continued settlement growth raises honest questions about Israel’s long term intentions,” adding that the Israeli authorities do not investigate attacks on Palestinians “vigorously,” that there was increasing vigilantism by settlers, and that there are two standards to the rule of law “one for Israelis and another for Palestinians.” Shapiro was referring to civil law prevailing in Israel while the army operates on the West Bank under martial law, which has far fewer protections for the accused and where shoot to kill policies against Arab demonstrators have become common. The criticism, as mild as it was, drew an angry response from Netanyahu, who called statement “unacceptable and untrue.” A political ally of Netanyahu called the American Ambassador a “little Jewboy.”

Israel, which fancies itself a democracy, does indeed have different standards of justice. As part of a new program of action against “terrorists,” Israel last week began arrests of anyone who posts content on Facebook that the government considers to be anti-Israeli. As it is not necessary to actually do anything to fall afoul of the new regulations, the offense is in the nature of a thought crime. Inevitably, Arabs have been arrested but no Jews. It is also interesting to consider whether Israel believes its extraterritoriality on what it considers terrorism to extend to Americans and Europeans who criticize Israeli actions. Many of those who are reading these words might well find themselves arrested if they should ever have to enter Israel for any reason.

Israel and its friends have also responded sharply to a European Union demand first put in place last November that products derived from the Israeli settlements be labeled as such, enabling consumers to avoid them if they choose to do so. Last week, the E.U. also indicated that any business or government to government dealings with Israel must not involve the settlements on the West Bank and in East Jerusalem. Israel’s point of view is that the West Bank settlements are de facto part of Israel. The Swedish foreign minister Margot Wallstrom has also been subjected to Israel’s wrath after she suggested that it might be worthwhile to investigate whether Israeli police and military have been executing Palestinian prisoners extra-judicially. More than 141 Palestinians have died in the recent unrest versus 24 Israelis. There have been numerous reports that some of the Arab victims have been shot and killed after they were either incapacitated or arrested while a leading Rabbi has called for all Palestinians to be executed. The Netanyahu government has attacked Wallstrom, stating that her comments were “a mix of blindness and political stupidity.” She has been officially banned from travel to Israel.

Israel’s pit bulls in the think tanks and media have inevitably joined in the discussion. Jennifer Rubin at the Washington Post explains “Why it’s correct to label the Obama administration anti-Israel,” citing, among others, the deranged Danielle Pletka of the American Enterprise Institute, who describes identifying settlement produced goods as “blatant anti-Semitism” coupled with a warning that that “it should be clear to Jews everywhere that the 1930s are returning.” Rubin also cites the ever reliable Elliott Abrams, who sees a broad movement to discredit Israel, commenting that the U.S. failure to condemn the E.U. action means that Obama is “joining the jackals.”

Rubin and her friends seek to twist the argument by maintaining that other areas “in dispute” do not have their products labeled, but they ignore the fact that there is no other situation anywhere in the world quite like Israel’s continued military occupation coupled with the introduction of settlers, destruction of the local economy and exploitation of aquifers and other natural resources. And the West Bank is hardly disputed, except by the Israel first last and always crowd. It is clearly Palestinian land.

Giving Israel more money will not make Netanyahu behave but there is no possibility that the largesse will somehow be terminated because America’s timorous leadership is afraid to confront the obvious. The whole world understands that Israel is the ultimate rogue nation, propped up by the only remaining superpower, which appears to be a helpless giant whenever it is confronted by the Israeli Prime Minister’s demands. Professor Stephen Walt of Harvard has recently suggested that the most influential papers within the U.S. mainstream media might want to consider featuring on their opinion pages more foreign power realists and a lot fewer neocons, in part because the former have been consistently right while the latter have nearly always been wrong. How true. It would be a breath of fresh air to open a newspaper and not be confronted by Elliott Abrams, Jennifer Rubin, Robert Kaplan, Charles Krauthammer and the Kagans spewing their nonsense about the Middle East.

A realist would instead ask “What are America’s interests in the Middle East?” and “Why do we have a widely promoted ‘special relationship’ with Israel?” The answers would demonstrate that Washington and Tel Aviv’s interests do not coincide and never have. And that the special relationship is a self-serving fiction invented by Israel’s friends. Understanding that and acting upon it would be a real change that many of us could quite comfortably live with.

  1. Yes, it would be nice to read some alternative columnists other than the Zionist and Neocon war mongers who never tire shaking their bon-bons for endless war in the ME.
    A war that only benefits Israel, Wall Street and Defense contractors.

    Israel gets more land, already cleaned out of the indigenous Arab inhabitants so they don’t have to go thru the tiresome and bloody Gaza type siege that gets them bad press that the US Congress takes care of by giving Israel more weapons and money.

    What’s going on in Flint is a portrait of what the rest of the nation’s water supply is starting to look like because we haven’t been spending enough money on upkeep. Add in the rusting sewer pipes and you’ll realize we’re drinking more than just lead.

    Money that should of been spent on highways, dams, bridges, national parks, electrical transmission lines, etc has been either given to Israel or used to bail out Wall Street con artists and pay around 500 BILLION a year in interest to the private bankers of the Federal Reserve.

    And this is what we’re leaving our children?

  2. When Bibi criticizes Obama, he is not criticizing the United States, and he has repeatedly expressed his very high opinion of the USA and its people. Indeed, support for Israel is above 80% in the USA, while Obama on a good day has a 45% approval rating.

    The military aid to Israel is mostly used to buy American weaponry, supporting our technological edge and economies of scale. It also allows Israel to specialize in a few areas of weapon development that it shares with the USA, in particular drone technology.

    It is a Win-Win relationship that the American public strongly supports on a bi-partisan basis, excepting only a few kooks on both the far left and far right.

  4. It is extremely short-sighted to encourage economic dependency on an industrial and financial model designed by another very different country that requires endless war. One can understand the Israelis have made their peace with eternal warfare and a garrison state based on ethnic supremacy, but why should the United States emulate such a dystopian model? The U.S. has no military rivals or threatening enemy nations at its borders and has a multiethnic, multireligious population. Its circumstances are entirely different from those of Israel, even if a dual loyalty minority in the U.S. has attained power and thinks what’s best for Israel in their opinion ought to be the policy objective for 300 million goyim. One might be forgiven for thinking that America is suffering under the imposition of a kind of Likud dhimmitude at the hands of deranged neocons, a minority of kooks loyal to a foreign government who have captured the one percenter elite duopoly party apparatus.

  6. Dear Mr Giraldi,

    Shouldn’t ALL US taxpayer money going to assist foreign nations, such as Israel, be conditioned on their active and genuine attempts to achieve peace with their neighbors ?

    Shouldn’t every nation in a state of belligerence that has no interest in achieving peace be designated as a “terrorist state” ?

    Shouldn’t Israel be required by law to have a fully articulated “Peace Plan”,that enumerates clear and just resolutions to every aspect of its conflict, prior to the release of ANY US funding?

    If so…..Where is it ?

    Where is Israel’s “Plan for Peace” , Mr Giraldi ?

  7. You’re worried about the water of Dindu-run midwestern US cities? Worried about their sewers? Really? Good! Teach them to fix it. The water was fine when we handed the cities over to the Blacks. But if you want the Blacks to have clean water again after they ruined everything in the cities they now occupy, for the money, look to the billions spent on illegal immigration and the billions for more Syrian/Muslim/African imports to the United States. Get the American Dindu to kindly stop the wars against one another in U.S. cities, that’s costing us billions. Start taxing the for-profit universities and their trillions in tax-free endowments. Eliminate the billions handed out to the abortion mills. Those are things you can take care of if you’re so worried about the kind of country we leave behind for our children. Shame on you to invoke “our children” in support of your single-issue hatred of Jews and Israel.

    Take care of the spending I don’t like, maybe we can discuss some of the spending YOU don’t like. Then, we can discuss the banks and Israel. Israel’s dough from the U.S. is a mere pittance, it is as nothing compared to what we spend on elements of the budget that actually hurt us. You’re just butt-hurt over the Jews and Israel. Israel costs little and after all, we receive so much in return. Far better to eliminate the billions spent on illegal immigrants, American Dindu and the influx of Muslim “refugees”.

    Entirely too generous, Phil. More likely any ‘freed up funds’ would go to by far more nefarious purpose; if only because ‘Bibi is Bibi’

  9. If there is 80 percent support for Israel among Americans it is only because they have been so thoroughly indoctrinated by pro Israel pundits. Some twenty years ago I supported (whatever that means) Israel too until I read Joan Peters “From time immemorial”. It was the very first book I read about the Israel Palestine conflict. You might be surprised that it was this book which was my awakening. A book which was widely read and considered by most people to champion Israel’s cause. I’m not most people though and I recognize propaganda when I read and hear it. Reading this book spurred me to seek out alternative books which I did and as a result of my own research, my views of the establishment of Israel changed, for the worse. I have now made it my aim to ensure that people I know who feel as I once did are aware of the other side of the history which has been ignored. Slowly, but surely, they change too. It’s a delight to see the scales fall off their eyes.

    I also have the most unpleasant intuition that some Jews feel Gentiles “owe” them because of past history. Well, I don’t owe anyone anything.

    Sorry, Lot. As you well know Profs. Mearsheimer and Walt have written a book The Israel Lobby and US Foreign Policy that goes to great lengths to demonstrate that the special relationship is not Win-Win, as you put it, but Win-Lose (and we all know who the Loser is in that equation, don’t we?). And I reject your characterization that those who have the temerity to question the “special relationship” must be “kooks,” as these two professors hail from academia’s more prestigious institutions, one from Harvard the other from Chicago.

    So Lot, you’ve once again demonstrated a favorite maxim of mine: thanks to the Internet, Hasbara is becoming more difficult by the minute.

    U.S. aid to Israel is, in part, a subsidy to the U.S. military-industrial complex… therefore U.S. aid to Israel is a “Win-Win” relationship that benefits both the US and Israel.

    I guess that makes sense, if you identify the U.S. public with the U.S. military-industrial complex.

  15. Mr. Giraldi, instead of blaming Bibi for robbing further American taxpayers over phony nuclear threat from non-existent Iranian nukes – should be blaming American politicians who are always ready to sell their mothers for Jewish financial and political favors.

    Netanyahu is commander-in-chief of world’s fifth most powerful army and the only nuclear power in the region. His “victimization” rhetoric are not for the security of West’s unwanted Jewish people, but to suck more free money from US taxpayers.

    In 2011, Rep. Ron Paul (R-KY) irked the Zionist Lobby, when he told CNN’s Jewish talk-show host Wolf Blitzer that under crushing economic picture in the US, Washington needs to stop its billions of dollars of annual aid to Israel. Since its creation by the western powers, Israel has successfully sucked over US$3 trillion from the US taxpayers. Barack Obama in late 2009 approved an additional $2.77 billion for Israeli foreign aid in 2010, and another $30 billion over the next decade.

    House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), the highest ranking Jewish member of Congress, has played down any talk of cutting foreign aid payments to Israel.

    Most Americans believe that European Jewish settlers need their hard-earned money to makes two-ends meals in a place surrounded by anti-Semite, anti-American 300 million Arabs. But the fact is, while Israeli Jews receive 46% of total foreign USAID – they have the highest standard of living among its Arab neighbors.

    But in reality, the Zionist entity happens to be world’s only “rich parasite state”.

  16. $5 billion might seem relatively inconsequential, but for Netanyahu it will mean that 25% of his entire defense budget will now come from the United States, enabling Israel to free up funds to provide free university education and medical treatment for its citizens, something that the American taxpayers who come up with the money do not enjoy.

    According to the National Center for Education Statistics, the average annual cost for tuition, fees, room and board at a public college/university was $15,640 for the 2013-14 academic year.

    The $5 billion USA taxpayers shell out to Israel each year could pay for a year of college education for

    319,693 of the sons and daughters of American taxpayers.

    The population of Corpus Christi, TX is 320,000.

    American taxpayers subsidize Israel in an amount that could provide a year of university education to almost an entire Texas town.

    Next time Bernie Sanders advocates for free education for all, and is challenged to come up with a way to pay for it, ask him — no, DEMAND of him whether he is willing to stop sending money to Israel and to invest it in American’s sons and daughters instead.

    THAT would be a change that we can believe in.

  17. People are missing the real play here.

    Then.
    “Goodness goodness, Europe is a hostile place for the Jews.”
    Then.
    Mass Jewish immigration to Israel.
    Then.
    “Oh goodness, Israel is too small!”

    Followed by a massive military campaign by Israel to grab more sand.
    They are essentially trying to manipulate their own moral case for war. It doesn’t take much to satisfy the mind numbingly retarded American evangelicals.

    But it is consciously manipulated — CAMERA held a conference recently whose agenda was precisely to keep “American evangelicals mind numbingly retarded;” check out the topics they discussed.

    Take note of the names of the evangelicals who are willing to sell out to the zionists — name ‘em and shame ‘em .

    Finally, notice how Jews/Israelis/zionists work to insist that other religious creeds reform, i.e. #4 and #7. Christianity was the target that needed tikun olam in this confab, but the need for reform is a prominent feature of much of Jewish discourse about Islam as well. *

  20. Israeli dindu welfare queens with their hands out, what else is new?

    Thanks for making all of this possible, Jewish diaspora!

    Indeed, Netanyahu does not behave as he does because he is compelled to do so or has some good reason for responding to critics disparagingly. He does so because standing up to the world community enhances his political stature among his extreme right wing supporters in Israel, who rejoice in telling critics that they do not care one bit about the increasing international sentiment condemning their behavior.

    Israeli welfare queens would change their tune but quick, if they didn’t have the Jewish diaspora’s full support.

    Israel last week began arrests of anyone who posts content on Facebook that the government considers to be anti-Israeli.

    Makes sense. Jews hate free speech, unless they’re successfully using it to take power so they can turn around and end free speech.

    Israeli Jews crack down on free speech, American Jewish diaspora enables and supports them. Business as usual.

    Israel and its friends have also responded sharply to a European Union demand first put in place last November that products derived from the Israeli settlements be labeled as such, enabling consumers to avoid them if they choose to do so.

    The obvious, humane response is to just boycott all Israeli products. Problem solved.

    Israel’s pit bulls in the think tanks and media have inevitably joined in the discussion. Jennifer Rubin at the Washington Post explains “Why it’s correct to label the Obama administration anti-Israel,”

    “Why it’s a moral imperative to be anti-Israel” should follow.

    Danielle Pletka of the American Enterprise Institute, who describes identifying settlement produced goods as “blatant anti-Semitism”

    True; we should boycott all Israeli goods. As for “blatant anti-Semitism,” that’s clearly a moral imperative, too.

    coupled with a warning that that “it should be clear to Jews everywhere that the 1930s are returning.”

    If Jews want to promote the idea that they brought the 1930s on themselves, they’re doing a great job.

    Indeed:

    “I know what America is. America is a thing you can move very easily, move it in the right direction. They won’t get in the way.”

    I can feel the love and respect from here.

    80% of the American public could say the Moon is made of green cheese. That wouldn’t make it so.

    At least the Israelis have a politician who stands up for his voters and does as he promised to get elected. The jewish ideology amongst the people of other countries is a tool he uses brilliantly in favor of his Israeli countrymen.

    Then the Jewish diaspora turns around and thanks us by forming the vanguard of the movement opposing whites even contemplating having for themselves what Jews have for themselves in Israel. Then Bibi shows his “right wing” (i.e., Jewish Supremacist of the rightish flavor) bona fides by “distancing himself” from Trump. “Right wing” Jews won’t even crook their little fingers for rightist Euros (tiny number of Righteous Jews like Gottfried excepted).

    Thanks Jews! With friends like you, who needs enemies?

    jim christian = shlomo jew

    Is “shlomo jew” code for “Noahide ‘Christian’ heretic”?

    your racism is very jewish. complaining about blacks this and that

    Yes, it’s amusing to watch the antics of Jewish “look, a schvartze!” “HBD types.” They’ll bash blacks until the cows come home, then they turn into boilerplate leftists the second anybody criticizes Jewish behavior.

    Next time Bernie Sanders advocates for free education for all, and is challenged to come up with a way to pay for it, ask him — no, DEMAND of him whether he is willing to stop sending money to Israel and to invest it in American’s sons and daughters instead.

    That would be a beautiful thing to see.

    Yes. There is no doubt in my mind.

    It is the attack on free speech that makes things all too clear. No one does that unless they are trying to lie and manipulate.

    My readings of Josephus prove there is a 2000 year history of this, at least. My book on Jewish history by Martin Gilbert even intimates that the Egyptian captivity was possibly the result of supporting the losing side of a revolution.

    S2C, a report on this CAMERA conference would be an excellent topic for the annual Israel Lobby conference in DC. So far, they’ve only announced the 3 keynote speakers for this years’ conference, March 18. That may mean they’re still getting confirmations, etc.

    You’re just the person to present this. Why not contact Grant Smith, or the WRMEA (Delinda Handley is much easier to get a hold of) and propose it. Anyway, thanks for reporting here at Unz.

  25. “Enabling Israel to free up funds to provide free university education and medical treatment for its citizens”

    The last time I checked university education is not free in Israel. It might be subsidized – as public universities are in the U.S. – but it is not free. Young Israelis gripe about college tuition in the same way young Anericans do.

    As far as medical treatment Israel does have a pretty good healthcare system. But costs are much cheaper there as Israelis take better care of themselves.

    You don’t see too many obese Israelis.

    Furthermore, Israeli medical treatment is not “free” as Israelis are heavily taxed for their treatment and Israelis oftentimes pay out of pocket for the best and fastest medical care.

    In fact, the just about the only people for whom Israeli medical care is “free” are the thousands of Syrians who sneak across the border for free medical care after being butchered by their fellow Arabs.

    It is also free for thousands of Palestinians who are allowed to get free medical care in Israel.

  28. My mistake Sherman – tuition at an Israeli university is $2,890 per year http://www.haaretz.com/jewish/jewish-ga/.premium-1.556481 . It is free if you are a Jewish immigrant making “Aliyah.” Israel has a national health system. It is free for the poorest citizens and for those making Aliyah but many opt for a supplementary plan which costs $50 monthly for a family of four http://forward.com/news/israel/158550/israels-health-care-outpaces-us/ . How exactly do you “sneak over” Israel’s heavily fortified border with Syria?

  29. thanks for the vote of confidence, Robin, but I was not at the conference.

    the stuff I posted is just a cut-and-paste from the camera website.

    I don’t know if the talks were videod; if so, it’s a safe bet camera will sell rather than post the videos.
    One could do some research on the speakers and get a general idea of their positions, I suppose, but I think most people here know those things.

    Frankly, I’m more interested in exposing to further awareness the operations of the US Treasury Dept group that blackmails major international corporations to desist from doing business with Iran — the shop that Stuart Levey set up about 10 years ago.

  31. Good point Solon – the federal government backed blackmailing scheme on behalf of Israel is little remarked upon but probably has had a more devastating impact than all the mouthings coming out of congress and the white house… And Robin, as for conferences, last year’s was full of Israelis and Pakistanis with precious little on the U.S. interest. I note the two keynote speakers this year are a Palestinian and and Israel. The former’s husband is Jewish… If we are ever going to build a mass movement objecting to the Israeli influence we have to talk about U.S. interests.

  32. $2,890 for tuition is not “free”. It is a good deal, but it is not free.

    It should be noted that this is not much cheaper than tuition at public US universities.

    You are correct about one point. It is virtually impossible to “sneak” across Israel’s heavily fortified border with Syria.

    What I should have written was Syrians often risk their lives when they sneak away from their fellow Arabs and approach the Israeli border seeking free medical care in Israel.

    I stand corrected.

  34. There is no evidence that the Hebrews were ever in Egyptian captivity. It was a myth fostered by warlords in the first millennium BCE for their own advantage. A migration on the scale of the purported Exodus leaves a major archaeological footprint that would still be fresh in a sparsely populated area after some 3000 odd years. There isn’t one.

  36. It’s interesting how much of the Pentateuch resembles the rules of ritual cleanliness described by Herodotus in his discussion of Egypt. Also, the name Moses is of Egyptian etymology. I think the scholarly consensus, as they say, is that some future Jews had left Egypt and come to Canaan.

    According to the Tale of Sinuhe, c1900 BC and not history but suggestive of possibility, an Egyptian aristocrat sought political refuge in Lebanon and lived there for a decade or two. So there was likely a lot of communication between Egypt and the Levant.

  37. Isn’t it the equivalent of building a straw man to demand that people recognise that it is not true that America’s and Israel’s interests ever “coincided”? As I suggested elsewhere in relation to the now relatively trivial $3 billion subsidy to Israel wasn’t it perhaps plausible for quite a while during the Cold War for Israel to be regarded as America’s army in the ME? And inertia for (almost) good and bad reasons can explain some continuities.

    And, to ease the path of those wishing to change US support for whatever Israel is doing from time to time would it not be wise for a US spokesman to try some such statement as “we are not going to allow the US to be hostage to any country’s domestic politics. Some Israeli settlers and their backers are being allowed to get away with the theft of Palestinian land and encroachments on their freedom to live as free people should be able to. That is not a feature of Israelis. Nor is it a feature of the state of Israel that we are happy to support and see thrive. That is a product of poisonous domestic politics which may have structural rather than ideological or character causes but in any event cannot be allowed to determine US policy against US national interests and the interests of a just international order.”?

  39. Actual Americans are not usually able to understand that a person as well informed and well spoken as you are would argue so disingenuously.

    “…Supporting our technological edge and economies of scale…” because everyone knows the cost of each murder on the margin is the real measure of national greatness.

    Maintaining 80% support for Israel (if that’s the level) has required the greatest infantilization of a formerly great people ever achieved. When the ex mayor of New York heard for the first time that US support for Israel was the motive behind the nineteen 9/11 hijackers, he was standing on a debate stage as a leading Republican presidential candidate.

    The never ceasing cacophony of lies and hypocrisy, such as yours, needed to maintain US support for Israel is the number one cause of America’s intellectual, social and political weakness. It’s poisoning America to death.

  41. Would you care to spell out for one genuinely and innocently interested what you mean by “500 billion a year in interest to the private bankers of the Federal reserve”? And what the evidence is (links or other references especially welcome)? And why it is bad?

    I wonder if the reference to “private bankers” has got something to do with the legal constitution of the Federal Reserve system (which I don’t carry round in my head and fully understand). Are you perhaps saying that members of the Federal Reserve’s governing body knowingly act in the interests, not of the public purposes of the Federal Reserve system which (presumably) is their legal duty, but in the interests of the beneficiaries of the profits made by the private banks which are regulated qua banks by the Federal Reserve? That prompts the further thought that such malefactors must be incredibly incompetent. After all you only have to look at the Australian (and I believe Canadian) banks during the global financial crisis from 2007 or 2008 to see how much better it is possible to regulate banks in the interests of their shareholders.

  43. Israel*, ISIS, and Saudi Arabia – The current axis of evil in the Middle East

    I call it Saudi Israelia, it’s one animal with ISIS teeth

    ISIS is just the 2nd Great Act of Israel and Saudi Arabia – the first was 911

    Saudi nationals with Israeli/Mossad protection and monitoring of the US to make sure they pulled it off. And then Mossad filmed it

    Israel and Saudi Arabia have been cooperating for years – and their fate is one now. The House of Saud is GOING DOWN as Obama topples the Netanyahu government, which is in motion as we speak

    ISIS and 911 – brought to you by Israel and Saudi Arabia

    Please support President Barack Obama as AIPAC/Saban’s girl Hillary, the Israeli Lobby/Jewish Lobby (including Saban, Adelson, Schumer, McCain, Graham, etc) and Israelis themselves (Bibi, Dermer, etc) are removed from power on the American political landscape

    What about Apartheid Israel? – as we topple Bibi as we speak, Diskin and the CIS Commanders for Israeli Security will be used along with Chaper 7 UN authorization to clear the Hilltop IDF/Settler IDF. The Zionist experience ends with a whimper, instead of the 1000 year war with Iran or ISIS set loose on Europe (the Israeli-Saudi desperate backup plan, along with an Israeli-Saudi war on Iran)

    It’s the 2nd American Revolution folks, America free of the Israeli Lobby/Jewish Lobby

    Vote the 2nd American Revolution party – coming soon to the 2016 elections near you and YES we have a presidential candidate

    GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO Courage is contagious! GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO

  49. “For years now, the U.S. has been employing extremist jihadi assets, brothers in arms with Al Qaeda, to destabilize and attempt to overthrow the Syrian government. Al Qaeda allies played a similar role in the U.S.-backed overthrow of the Libyan government. And Al Qaeda itself is an outgrowth of the CIA’s Mujahideen assets that the U.S. unleashed against the Soviets in the Afghan Jihad of the 80s as part of Operation Cyclone.

    In 2014, the U.S. sponsored a neo-Nazi-spearheaded putsch that overthrew the Russian-allied government of Ukraine. This policy too has a long pedigree. As The New York Times reported, during the Cold War, the CIA made extensive use of former Nazis as anti-Soviet assets.

    These operations are extensions of a Cold War policy inaugurated by the President Harry Truman’s National Security Council in a 1948 secret directive called NSC 10/2, which assigned to the CIA the task of:

    “…subversion against hostile states, including assistance to underground resistance movements, guerrillas and refugee liberation groups.”

    The operations were to be :
    “…so planned and executed that any US government responsibility for them is not evident to unauthorized persons, and that if uncovered the US government can plausibly disclaim any responsibility for them.”

    Recognizing the deception behind 9-11 and the “War on Terror” is the only way to free ourselves from fear and to extricate our deceived nation from the false logic of war that has been imposed upon us. Understanding who is behind the 9-11 deception is essential to grasping who is behind the fraudulent “War on Terror.”

  51. Never let a good crisis go to waste. There are so many things you can do during a crisis than you otherwise could do. Like playing a game on levels. On the low level they fight over things like religion. On the higher lever they maneuver the dopy lower level to achieve the actual goals. Thats why the Palestinians are important, without them they could never do what they want, the crisis, the threat. Other countries in the region which are Muslim could easily take these people.
    Why do we pay any of them? Mr. Giraldi always the CIA stooge never says. But he does play nicely to the “they have that we don’t have” nicely. There is always one problem, that the US is a nation of immigrants and they are not each other peoples. Israel and other nations of the Middle East share a nationalism in their countries where the US has none and increasingly neither does the EU.
    I guess that is why I don’t vote, they aren’t my people and I am not theirs. I don’t agree with their socialism either.

  52. I consistently marvel at how silly this sort of thing is. The sinister Jewish lobby and neocon intellectuals, and all that rot. Rational states seek to enlarge their borders and protect their interests for themselves alone. One need look no further than the expansion of our own country during the 19th and 20th centuries to understand that it is perfectly justified to obtain land, wealth and security through territorial expansion. Do to the opposite, to sit about and depend upon the good graces on one’s neighbors, where those neighbors are open enemies, would be treason.

  53. In September 2015, Rabbi Jill Jacobs, leader of T’ruah, a rabbinic human rights organization, submitted a complaint to the New York state attorney-general office to investigate an Israel-based American Jewish NGO, Honenu, and its sponsor, the NY-based Central Fund of Israel for funding Israeli Jewish settlers, convicted for acts of terrorism or under investigation for acts of terrorism against native Palestinian Muslims and Christians in the Jewish Occupied Palestine, particularly in the West Bank.

    The complaint mentioned the recent attack on a Palestinian home in northern West Bank by a group of Jewish terrorists. They torched the house while the Daobasa family was sleeping, killing 18-month-old Ali Saad and wounding his 4-year-old brother and parents. Both parents of Ali Saad died in hospital later as result of severe burns.

    Rabbi Jacobs has claimed that her organization has submitted more than 100 documented cases of terrorism against Palestinians carried out by the Jews during the first six months of this year. She claims that Honenu not only provides defense lawyers for the terrorists but also provide financial support for families of the convicted Jew terrorists.

    “Just as we would be furious to learn of tax-exempt money going to Hamas or ISIS, we must not allow US taxpayers to subsidize money that is given strings-free to members of our own people who are accused or convicted of terror,” says Jacobs.

    You have to excuse Rabbi Jacobs’ Jewish Learning for comparing Palestinian resistance group Hamas with US-Israel bastard child ISIS and Honenu. For example, in 2013, Honenu sent funds to the family of a Israeli convicted of killing seven Palestinians in May 1990; the families of two Jewish-Israelis convicted of attempted murder for trying to plant a bomb at a girls school in eastern Jerusalem in 2002; and the son of a former Israeli Knesset member who kidnapped and abused a Palestinian boy in 2010….

    you’re so stupid, Jim Christian.

    If Jews were so uber smart why were they incapable of forming a civilization over the 3 000 years that Persians created an empire; that Egyptians created a culture; that Romans created an empire; that Germans created one of the most refined and accomplished cultures the world had ever known?

    THIMK, Jim Christian.

    Jews are history’s vandals. They don’t create, they steal, plunder and destroy that which surpasses their ability to accomplish.

    If the jewish community worldwide has a higher IQ it is because their most ignorant were destroyed, with Jewish complicity. Today, Jews are among the highest practitioners of abortion — culling the herd, the principles were known in biblical times.

  63. What happened three thousand years back, oh, that matters. Egyptian/African Dindu, Persians, Romans, and all the rest, where ARE they today? More importantly, WHAT are they today? Who cares? What is applicable is the past 70 years. Stupid is as stupid does. I recognize a winner when I see one. Israel and the Jews in general survive, they prosper, they defend themselves. And they don’t bother me a wit. And, ask me where I’d like to be dropped, anywhere in the world to spend the last of my days, I pick Tel Aviv. Maybe Haifa, it’s a nice town. I used to go there a lot in the service, nice people. What, I should pick Syria, Egypt, Iran, Iraq maybe? No Christian with an ounce of common sense would choose Muslim culture/countries over Israel, given a choice.

    Muslims are a cheating, lying people in personal transactions. They sell and rape and murder their own children. Islam is a murderous, heinous culture. Muslims in all of Islam’s factions, flavors and sects are as one to me, so spare me the argument that “AMANLT”. “Honor killings” of the daughters, that’s all a civilized citizen of the world needs to hear. That is a filthy, dishonorable tradition and colors the entire enterprise for me. Islam is a culture I have no use for. But understand, recognizing the issues isn’t hatred. I disregard Islam, but I don’t particularly hate Islam. I simply have no use for it. But the hatred you folks boil over with in your jealousy of the Jews is unbelievable.

    As for you, you need to quit looking at the world through those green and jealous eyes. You’re going to get an ulcer from all that jealousy and hatred. You’ll never convince me of your view of Israel and Jews in general. Jews here in the states have been honest, fair, square, profitable, generous and kind to me in times of grief. Jews in Israel were kind and grateful to us United States Naval Air types back in the 70s and early 80s. And NO ONE parties hearty like the Israeli Air Force. And frankly, if they needed mechanics to dance on an IAF flight line fixing their F-15s, my only question would be, “What time does my flight leave?”.

    It is also free for thousands of Palestinians who are allowed to get free medical care in Israel.

    What happened three thousand years back, oh, that matters. Egyptian/African Dindu, Persians, Romans, and all the rest, where ARE they today? More importantly, WHAT are they today? Who cares? What is applicable is the past 70 years. Stupid is as stupid does.

    Who cares? Jews care. Don’t take my word — someone mentioned this talk by Yossi Alpher — http://www.brookings.edu/events/2015/03/12-israel-periphery-doctrine-search-middle-east-allies

    Jews are orgasmic to be recognized as co-heirs to the Persian empire. Being such hi-IQ volk as they are, apparently Israeli Jews recognize that their own kultcha is squat; they need to somehow find a relationship between Lithuanian/Pollacks and Persians in order to feel good about themselves.

    Where are THEY today? Persians are the most accomplished, dynamic and politically astute government and culture in the region. Why do you think Israeli Jews expend so much energy trying to destroy them? If you’re quarterback is a loser, break the leg of the opponent’s QB; if you can’t compete, destroy the competition. But damn those Persians, they refuse to be destroyed, after all this punishment they’ve absorbed from ungrateful Jews.

    As for the Rome thing, the entire zionist project is based on Rome-envy. Once again, don’t take my word — http://www.zionism-israel.com/zionism_sacher.htm“The Zionist movement dates from A.D. 70, the year of the destruction of the Temple and the Jewish State.”

    2000 years is a long time to nurse a grudge.
    nb the “Jewish state,” such as it was, was funded by Rome, run by Romans, persisted with the sufferance of Roman authorities. jus’ sayin’

    I recognize a winner when I see one.

    That’s obvious. From your loser perspective Israeli Jews who live on stolen land and kill children to sustain it look like winners. Everything’s relative.

    Israel and the Jews in general survive, they prosper, they defend themselves.

    that’s a hoot.
    USA funnels $100 billion to Izzies to “defend themselves,” and a bunch of Levanese irregulars, armed and trained by Persians, may I add, whup their arses.

    If Izzies are so rough and tough, why is Bibi blackmailing everyone in sight, turning US Congress into whores, in order to get more money so Jews can “defend themselves.”

    And they don’t bother me a wit.

    lucky for you. maybe they got all their ‘let’s kill American sailors” urges out of their system when they shot up the USS Liberty and killed 34 Americans.
    When criminals get away with crimes they tend to repeat them.
    How long do you think the Izzies can go before the next predation? How lucky DO you feel?

    And, ask me where I’d like to be dropped, anywhere in the world to spend the last of my days, I pick Tel Aviv. Maybe Haifa, it’s a nice town. I used to go there a lot in the service, nice people.

    Good taste.
    Tel Aviv was built by Jews trained in Germany, to replicate the German-European ambiance that would most appeal to German Jews. Etan Bloom wrote about it in his dissertation at Tel Aviv University. You should check it out. Bloom mentions how in ~1909 Jews built the city close-by the Arab port at Jaffa and stole Arab trade and rents.

    What, I should pick Syria, Egypt, Iran, Iraq maybe? No Christian with an ounce of common sense would choose Muslim culture/countries over Israel, given a choice.

    If Christians understood the Persian-Syrian roots of their Christian values and ethics they would, and if they were not so deferential to predatory Jews, as you are, they would have defended their faith and their cities rather than betraying themselves to usurpers, as you have.

    Muslims are a cheating, lying people in personal transactions. They sell and rape and murder their own children. Islam is a murderous, heinous culture. Muslims in all of Islam’s factions, flavors and sects are as one to me, so spare me the argument that “AMANLT”. “Honor killings” of the daughters, that’s all a civilized citizen of the world needs to hear. That is a filthy, dishonorable tradition and colors the entire enterprise for me. Islam is a culture I have no use for. But understand, recognizing the issues isn’t hatred. I disregard Islam, but I don’t particularly hate Islam. I simply have no use for it.

    Pretty broad brush, Jim C.
    There are Arab Muslims, Indonesian Muslims, Persian Muslims, Black American Muslims, Indian Muslims — all kinda Muslims. With all kinds of tribal practices that have nothing to do with Islam.

    I was trying to find the Old Testament story about a Girl Who Had No Name, whose father sold her, or traded her to be killed, or something like that, I forget. It’s not an oft-repeated story, likely because the young girl didn’t even have a name. but in the process of looking for it I came upon a list of women in Hebrew Scriptures. Some nasty stuff went on in the good ole days.

    If you want to meet some really dynamic and gorgeous women, Iran’s your place. God those women are as gorgeous as they are tough. Maybe you prefer Jewish women who dress up in camo and use weapons as sex toys. I’ve never seen an Iranian woman stoop that low.

    But the hatred you folks boil over with in your jealousy of the Jews is unbelievable.
    As for you, you need to quit looking at the world through those green and jealous eyes. You’re going to get an ulcer from all that jealousy and hatred.

    Jealous? Jimmy doth project too much.
    In our family we’ve got 5 undergrad degrees, 3 masters, 1 PhD, two professional degrees. The first of our kids will turn 40 this year. The first two are competing to see who will be first to reach $5million net worth (I think the oldest has the edge, but try not to play favorites).

    You’re mis-identifying the emotion: after many years of examining the situation, my gripe with Jews — almost as a collective — is primarily their tendency to spread lies about other people and used their facility with wordsmithing to vilify other people to the point that they engender hatred of them, with the goal of causing the destruction of those people. Jews did this to Germans — twice — and are doing it to Palestinians, Iranians, Syrians. It’s easy — and cheap — to vilify someone else.
    The way I was raised I learned that “Who sins not with his tongue [i.e. what is said or written] sins not at all.” Spreading lies about someone is a horrible thing to do and has caused endless suffering and bloodshed, but that is a specialty among zionists — Vladimir Jabotinsky bragged about it. I think it is destructive and evil.

    You’ll never convince me of your view of Israel and Jews in general. Jews here in the states have been honest, fair, square, profitable, generous and kind to me in times of grief. Jews in Israel were kind and grateful to us United States Naval Air types back in the 70s and early 80s. And NO ONE parties hearty like the Israeli Air Force. And frankly, if they needed mechanics to dance on an IAF flight line fixing their F-15s, my only question would be, “What time does my flight leave?”.

    Ah — the heart of the matter: you have been emotionally supported by Jews. Someone who has been “love-bombed” — emotionally overwhelmed, especially in a time of deep distress, i.e. grief — is almost immune to rational persuasion.
    Zionists specialize in emotional appeal — it’s the central element of Israeli hasbara.
    You may be redeemable, but it would be very difficult.
    You have my sympathy, particularly since one of the patterns of Israeli-Jewish-zionism that I have observed is that Jews will glad-hand and befriend and use until they achieve their goals, and maybe even beyond. But if the Jewish tribe is challenged or threatened, and you’re not Jewish, you are toast. Practice sliding under the bus and staying out of range of the tires.

    Get over it, Muzzy.

    First of all, I’m not Muslim, if that’s what you’re referring to by the slur, “Muzzy.”
    Second, statements like “Get over it” always sound like, “Enjoy your rape.” As a man that really offends me.

  76. Palestinians establish a healthcare system? Is that an attempt at humor? They are capable of very few things which require more than a pan-handling technology.

    And the Syrians, Bedouins, Jordanians, other assorted arabs all flock to Israel, when injured or otherwise in need of medical help, which they routinely receive if they can get to an Israeli patrol, and usually turn pro-israel after their experience. Al-Nusra, Al-dente, Al-shish kebab it matters very little: they all know that Israel will help regardless of their stripes when injured. Can they expect the same from their own ? In Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, hell no! Sure Israel wants good wishes from those that it has helped, why would it not?

    All these groups now realize that it a better future if Israeli plans and laws are in place over the region, instead of the usual chaos.

    The PA leadership in the meantime eats caviar in Paris. Go figure.

  77. “How exactly do you “sneak over” Israel’s heavily fortified border with Syria?”

    Israel is giving free medical care to Syrian “rebels” (al-Qaeda affiliates) who arrive through the Golan Heights. Israel supports the Syrian terrorists because they want Syria to turn into a failed state so that they can steal even more Syrian land. It’s been rumored that there are significant amounts of oil in the region. This makes one wonder how long Israel has had a relationship with al Qaeda; before or after 9/11?

    A number of senior Israeli government officials have stated that they would prefer ISIS over Assad.

  82. Palestinians establish a healthcare system? Is that an attempt at humor? They are capable of very few things which require more than a pan-handling technology.

    Well, there’s the example of Izzeldin Abuelaish, the Palestinian physician from Gaza who was working in an Israeli hospital patching up IDF predators when his house in Gaza was shelled by same IDF, killing his daughters.

    The video of Dr. Abuelaish immediately after he learned of the killing of his daughters does not appear to be on the ‘nets anymore, but I remember it:

    Jews surrounded Dr. Abuelaish and screamed at him that there must have been Hamas fighters in his home.
    The doctor put his head in his hands and moaned, “They do not want to know the truth.”

    an Al Jazeera version of the tragedy elides the Jewish attacks on Dr. Abuelaish and glorifies Jews as “rushing to help”

    Early on, Jewish groups turned Dr. Abuelaish into a dog-and-pony show, because he proclaimed early and often, “I forgive; I will not hate.” I went to one of the events where a local synagogue sponsored the physician from Gaza. The Jews were oh so proud of their magnanimity at hosting this otherwise lesser creature; didn’t it just prove how open and caring they were?

    To be sure, as members of the (largely Jewish) audience took the microphone in the Q and A, they repeated the attacks on Dr. Abuelaish: you brought it on yourself.

  83. “Seeking Bibi’s Favor”

    Another great article by Giraldi. Although, I think the title misses the real point. I don’t think Obama is giving more money to the right wing government of Israel in an effort to placate Netanyahoo. This is just the Israeli Lobby taking advantage of a period of perceived “weakness” to leverage their power and get more money for Israel. Certainly Netanyahoo is part of the effort but you can bet that behind closed doors the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations (51 organizations) are lobbying Obama (the first Jewish president as he was known to Zionist supporters in the 2008 campaign) for more money.

    It is strange that the U.S. makes the region and Israel safer by stopping any nuclear weapons program in Iran and yet the U.S. needs to “compensate” Israel for this effort. The rational is similar to the situation after Israel’s premeditated attack on the USS Liberty. Instead of cutting aid and penalizing Israel within a few years their aid was quadrupled! I believe the attack on the USS Liberty and then rewarding the attackers was the major turning point in the “special relationship”. The Israelis realized they could do anything to the U.S., even murder or wound hundreds of Americans, with no repercussions. They realized their sayanim and agents in the U.S. could actually extract rewards and this strange “special relationship” has been going on since.

  85. re “A number of senior Israeli government officials have stated that they would prefer ISIS over Assad”

    I believe Sam Shama (in a previous article’s thread) had correctly identified the ‘Syrian rebel’ casualties treated in Israel as al Nusra (al-Qaida.) Furthermore, al Nusra is a Saudi (Israel’s ally in the matter) ‘rebel faction’ of choice. It appears Saudis have been allowed to join al Nusra and then supported logistically but with a caveat; ‘don’t ever come home.’ Those that do return are rounded up and executed, a big piece of the spike in executions of this past year.

    Insofar as ISIS, the Israeli Defense Minister has gone on record (not reported on by western newswires) criticizing Turkey for support of Islamic State.

    Speaking to reporters in Athens after meeting with his Greek counterpart Panos Kammenos, Ya’alon said that “it’s up to Turkey, the Turkish government, the Turkish leadership, to decide whether they want to be part of any kind of cooperation to fight terrorism. This is not the case so far.”

    “As you know, Daesh (Islamic State) enjoyed Turkish money for oil for a very, very long period of time. I hope that it will end,” Ya’alon said.

  89. “Israeli DM Prefers ISIS to Iran
    Posted By Jason Ditz On January 19, 2016 @ 5:17 pm In News | 13 Comments
    Speaking today at a security conference in Tel Aviv, Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon declared that he “prefers ISIS” over Iran, and does not consider ISIS to pose a serious threat to the Israeli state, saying Iran will always remain “the main enemy.”

    Ya’alon insisted that he believes ISIS will be defeated at any rate, what with the US launching strikes on their oil supplies, but that he’d much rather see ISIS rule all of Syria, and consequently be directly on Israel’s border, than have the pro-Iran government remain in power.

    Ya’alon’s declaration was a lot more public than most, but not really outside of long-standing Israeli policy, and the defense minister laid out a similar argument around the notion of an apocalyptic “clash of civilizations” between Israel and the Shi’ite world, believing that the Sunnis, like ISIS, are practically on their side.

    Not that ISIS sees it that way. While they’ve been more focused on attacking Shi’ites than attacking Israel so far, they’ve made multiple statements about their plans to expand into Palestine and fight against Israeli forces. Israel’s military chief warned only yesterday that ISIS may soon turn its focus to attacking Israel and Jordan.”

  90. Israel plays a deceitful role in the ME. Ya’alon criticizes Turkey for supporting ISIS but has gone on record stating that he would rather have ISIS than Assad in power in Syria. Also, Israel doesn’t mention their covert alliance with Saudi Arabia, the biggest funder and supplier of arms and ideological source of their radical Wahhabi terrorist beliefs.

    “Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon earlier admitted Israeli support for ISIS and other takfiri terrorists, deceptively calling them Syrian rebels – failing to explain they’re imported from scores of countries, used as imperial foot soldiers to oust Assad, no so-called “moderates” among them.”

    “In October, Iraqi security forces captured an Israeli colonel, Yuri Oulen Shahak, working directly with ISIS terrorists. He explained Netanyahu’s criminality during interrogation, one more example of Zionist evil.”

    http://www.globalresearch.ca/israel-supports-isis/5492807

    As early as 2013, “senior Israeli officials were quoted as saying that “al-Qaeda control over Syria would be preferable to a victory by Assad over the rebels.”

    http://www.algemeiner.com/2013/06/04/israeli-officials-wed-prefer-al-qaeda-run-syria-to-an-assad-victory/#

    Israel’s Minister of Defense Moshe “Bogey” Ya’alon told an international security conference in Tel Aviv Tuesday that if he had to choose, he would prefer to have the Islamic State (ISIS) next door in Syria, rather than Iran.

  91. Whereas Israel has a sweetheart arrangement whereby many discoveries that are made through research and development in the USA, Israel gets a piece of the action, Iran has no such deal; quite the opposite: Israel manipulates markets, governments and financial facilities so that Iran is disadvantaged and Israel is advantaged. No disrespect to persons with special needs, but Israel’s symbol should be the Short Bus.
    Apparently Israel is afraid it couldn’t contend with the competition if it could not sow glass on the opponent’s playing field. Buncha losers.

    Here’s a sample of what Iran has accomplished, with one hand tied behind its back, while Israel has two hands deep in Uncle Sam’s pockets:

    What Can Mississippi’s Health Care System Learn From Iran? — NY Times July 2012:

    “One of the people responsible for HealthConnect’s holistic, intensely personal approach is Dr. Aaron Shirley, who three years ago found inspiration for health care reform in an unlikely place: the primary health care system created in the 1980s in the Islamic Republic of Iran. The main issue in Iran back then was “disparities in health between its urban and rural populations,” he told me recently. “In the U.S., these disparities exist. The Iranian model eliminated the geographic disparities, so why couldn’t this same approach be used for racial and geographic disparities in the U.S.?”

  92. The Greek historian, Herodotus, who wrote in the 5th Century BC, wrote extensively of the Mid East region, and he never mentioned : Hebrews, Israel, Judah, the Exodus, David, the glory of Solomon, etc. You are right -it is all bullsh-t. What he does mention is Palestine and Palestinians, which Israel claims never existed. Incidentally, read Arthur Koestler’s “The Thirteenth Tribe”. He makes a good case that Netanyahu and the rest of the Ashkenazi Jews are descended from Turkish roots and have little Semitic roots. The Palestinians are probably the real descendants of the Bibical Hebrews

    Israeli-Saudi cooperation have been in cahoots for years, breaking surface now as Herzog/Lieberman and the rest are desperately trying to form their NATO-esque alliance against Iran, since Obama has failed them.

    The Three Existential Events for Israel, seen as such by Israel itself, have ALREADY OCCURRED/ARE CURRENTLY OCCURRING, and the Tsunami is upon Apartheid Israel

    The Three Existential Events for Israel:
    1- The Iran Nuclear Deal July 14 2015
    2- The UN Sec Council Resolution against Israel (coming in the next several weeks) supported/(abstention) by Obama’s America and the worldwide shift into high gear with BDS-type sanctioning, even involving the American public (churches, academia, labor groups are/have already come on board)
    3- The Successfully advancing ICC cases against Apartheid Israel (over Protective Edge 2014) and numerous others in the works. (See Col Liron Libman PUBLISHED on Wikileaks Embassy Cables saying these ICC cases against Apartheid Israel are INDEFENSIBLE for Apartheid Israel and the prime existential threat)

    The Saudis and Shimon Peres/Israelis also broke surface over Obama’s tardy support for Arab Spring ouster of Mubarak, and that is when Saudi Arabia publicly let it be known it was breaking ranks with America because it could see the writing on the wall that the US would soon be rethinking propping up the House of Saud as the Arab Spring threatened to take Jordan, Syria, and MOST OF ALL Apartheid Israel.

    Israel in cahoots with the House of Saud NEEDED the Pearl Harbor of 911 to save themselves – and engineered it with their willing Wahabiis with certain as known royal family backers in the House of Saud – just like the good old days in Afghanistan with Bin Laden. It was Bin Laden who concocted the plan and he had KNOWN Saudi royal family support of the hijackers which has already been reported in the open source mainstream.

    It’s the best Israeli false flag operation of all time – except for the current one of creating Magic ISIS Army along with Petraeus, Boot, and the rest of the Neocons – and then turning these Saudi Israelia jihadis loose on Europe to save Apartheid Israel’s bacon, once they failed to overthrow Baghdad/Iraq, and couldn’t be used against Iran either

    The House of Saud needed 911 to save the House of Saud internally as well as to take out Iraq (success until they got bogged down and couldn’t go on to Syria and Iran) and Iran (as failing to take out Iran was/is an Existential Event for them), the Israelis needed 911 to save/kickstart their Clean Break Plan (which they successfully did) but Obama stopped their Existential Event-Rescue of attacking Iran/tripwiring the US into Iran, and the US Neocons needed it for the same reason as Israel above

    When the American people are made aware of Michael Ledeen/Doug Feith’s hijacking the US into their Clean Break for Securing the Israeli Realm plan of getting Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Iran, etc etc — it is ALL OVER for the Israeli Lobby/Jewish Lobby in the US.

    Sheldon Adelson has Chinese Mafia links being exposed in US courts currently, Haim Saban collaborated with Rep Jane Harman for the US House Intelligence chair in exchange for derailing (what the FBI calls a completed crime on Jane’s part, on the record) the AIPAC espionage trial of Steve Rosen and Keith Weissman

    Saban is Hillary’s prime backer:

    QUEEN HILLARY ON AN AIPAC HORSE: CHECKMATE

    SHELDON ADELSON: CHINESE MAFIA LINKS IN US COURT: CHECKMATE

    Judaism is stuck to Zionism,

    like Israel is stuck to Apartheid,

    like Hillary is stuck to AIPAC/Saban,

    like Jeb/Rubio/Cruz are stuck to Adelson…

    Whilst the TOP Israeli IDF legal teams (PUBLISHED on Wikileaks Embassy Cables, per IDF Col Liron Libman himself) say Israeli Apartheid is INDEFENSIBLE at the ICC because, well, Israel is Apartheid.

    CHECKMATES: Zionism, Apartheid Israel, Hillary, Jeb/Rubio/Ted, and AIPAC

    They were all roped together like climbers crossing a crevasse – zip, zip, zip, zip… one after the other…

    It’s the 2nd American Revolution – and we’ve got a GREAT CANDIDATE for 2016

    GO GO GO Courage is Contagious! GO GO GO!

  94. It is fascinating and tragic, Mr. Giraldi,

    that there was “zero” reporting in the main stream media, on the landmark statement made just yesterday, by Ban Ki -moon, Secretary General of the United Nations, as to the pertinent FACTS of the central conflict of our time….Israel/Palestine.

    When one considers the simple truth that Americans, in order to make informed decisions..need to be informed…One has to realize that both the capacity and willingness to dis -inform us, by the Lobby and its Media, is a signature ground, if not “the” signature ground, on which our “March” should stake its claim.

    Fraud, deception, and failure to disclose facts germane not only to that conflict, but on every single issue contributing to the collapse of our fine Republic, should be the centerpiece of our march for liberty.

    How can Americans make informed decisions around the facts of events and their consequences if they are constantly being defrauded about what those facts are ?

    Imagine what the United States would look like today…if all “their” cleverly crafted deceptions and treasonous deceits were disavowed from every key decisions our Nation has made, over the last 15 years?

    Imagine how much of our Republic would be retained today, had we not succumbed to the Lobby’s pernicious fraud that so disabled it. ?

    It would be, if not a whole new world, at least one,”13 trillion” times better off, than it is today.

    A very real part of our march, should encompass the demand to “claw back” as much of that “13 trillion” as is humanly possible.

  95. you brought it on yourself.

    “It was not our fault

    Nobody dindus like the Jews.

    http://mondoweiss.net/2016/01/among-the-settlers

    Doesn’t that sound like a National Socialist state?

    Not that ISIS sees it that way. While they’ve been more focused on attacking Shi’ites than attacking Israel so far, they’ve made multiple statements about their plans to expand into Palestine and fight against Israeli forces. Israel’s military chief warned only yesterday that ISIS may soon turn its focus to attacking Israel and Jordan.”

    Nobody cares if Israelis say ISIS is their enemy. Nobody cares if ISIS says the Israelis are their enemy. Until ISIS actually does something, or vice-versa, it’s all hot air.

    Incidentally, read Arthur Koestler’s “The Thirteenth Tribe”. He makes a good case that Netanyahu and the rest of the Ashkenazi Jews are descended from Turkish roots and have little Semitic roots. The Palestinians are probably the real descendants of the Bibical Hebrews

    You’re burning your own credibility with the (long debunked) Koestler/Khazar thing. Guilt by ideological association may not be logical, but it is human. It’s like injecting comments about how the Moon landings were faked into your comments.

  97. “But Israel (all of it) was promised by G-d”

    “There is and was no such thing as a Palestinian. Arabs only came to that area in the 1930s and 40s as the Jews made the desert blossom”

    “Stop with the evil, anti-Semitic, anti-Israel propaganda! Are you trying to equate moral equivalence?”

    “Anti-Zionism is the same as anti-Semitism. This article shows and proves how Israel really needs its own country, and one freed of barbaric, terroristic, evil, anti-Jewish Muslim terrorists.”

    “You must be receiving money from evil, anti-Semitic, Muslim terrorists. Just like Hillary (and Bill). It’s absolutely repugnant that Hillary Clinton is receiving money from evil, FOREIGN Muslims. How dare anyone running for POTUS have a conflict of interest with any foreign state, and not look out for America and American interests’ first.”

    “And of course Obomber (who is a raving non-interventionist, pro-terrorist peacenik) is an evil, disgusting, America hating “Muslim.” He IS A MUSLIM. And he does not put Amerca first! He has thrown Israel under the bus. And he is an evil, no good, hateful anti-Semite. He has shown how much he truly hates the patriot of our times, PM Netanyahu! (Netanyahu for prez in 2016! I say dump the trump or maybe the Donald will pick BiBi as his VP – they are of course very close).”

    “This vile anti-Semitic attack (veiled as being so-called anti-Israelism) shows how at ANY moment now, the Muslims are about to take over America and bring in Shariah Law. Oh MY G-D! Oh My G-d!”

    “Seeing that this once pro-American online blog is now publishing despicable anti-American (anti-Israel) propaganda, it’s obvious that the Muslims are now taking over our American media/MSM, as they’ve been taking over Hollywood, US Banking and Finance, and of course as Obomber was elected as president, we have the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) controlled White House, the Muslim controlled Congress (there are two evil Muslims in the US congress!), let alone the Muslim controlled State Department (Hillary and her lover – you know the one who married the nice, innocent, good Jewish boy!), the Muslim Pentagon, the Muslim run CIA, etc. Obviously we all live under MOG. Muslim Occupied Govt.! OH MY G-D!!!!!!!!”

    “Signed 99% of all so-called modern “conservatives” (sic) in America who of course are extremist, war mongering, Trotskyite (no, not former!), revolutionary, frothing at the mouth, rabid, fanatical, philo-Semetic, Zionistic, Israhell Firster, raving ZIOCONS (aka Neocons).”

    And yes, I, anti-Ziocon, detest Obomber, Killery, etc., and the flipside of the Ziocons which are the neo-Bolshevik, Cultural Marxist (from the Frankfort Yeshiva), modern “Liberals.” Both the Republicrats and the Demopubs are in essence two sides of the same coin, or two wings of the same bird.

    BTW, great article Mr. Giraldi! Thanks for puting America First!

  98. there was “zero” reporting in the main stream media, on the landmark statement made just yesterday, by Ban Ki -moon, Secretary General of the United Nations, as to the pertinent FACTS of the central conflict of our time….Israel/Palestine.

    Strategic Survey for Israel, 2015 – 2016 Shlomo Brom and Anat Kurz, Editors ( h/t PlatosGuns.com )

    A primary conclusion emerging from this analysis is that at the present time, when the Middle East is rocked by turbulence and political and security upheaval, Israel must do the utmost to fashion opportunities in order to advance its political and security status. Since the Iranian nuclear issue is less of an immediate issue than last year, and

    the international community understands that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is not at the heart of the conflicts and tensions in the Middle East,

    Israel has an opportunity to formulate proactively, in coordination with the United States, a strategy that can respond to the threats before it and perhaps to advance peace arrangements with additional states in the Middle East. p. 13

    but

    notwithstanding all the upheavals and realignments in the region since the outbreak of the Arab Spring, the Palestinians continue to cast a long shadow over the web of Israel’s political and security relations with the rest of the Middle East. That, at least, has not been transformed. p. 27

    It’s not the conflict — i.e. Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands and oppression of Palestinian peoples — that’s the problem it’s the Palestinians that are the problem.

    other than that Mrs Lincoln how did you like the play?

  101. “It is strange that the U.S. makes the region and Israel safer by stopping any nuclear weapons program in Iran”
    ” Netanyahu is now demanding more money from Washington because the agreement has, in his esteemed opinion, made Israel more vulnerable.”

    Israel demands compensation because they ( and the US filth) know that Iran never had a nuclear weapons program: the whole game was to weaken Iran economically through sanctions and the removal of those was what the US was paying for.

    That the US has to pay this shitty little country for its foreign policy choices is astonishing.

  107. Well gee, if the United States and Israeli filth hadn’t sat and listened to Iran promise to turn the United States and Israel into lakes of nuclear fire the past 25 years, maybe they wouldn’t have to turn the screws on Iran just to make sure. They have responsibilities to their citizens. It occurs to sensible people to listen to madmen for clues to their intentions and see what’s up the Iranian sleeve. If you threaten me with nuclear weapons, you should consider that I am going to prevent that.

    I suppose you’re going to tell us those crazy ayatollahs were just joshing? They didn’t MEAN nothin’! Care to explain that?

  108. “Israel costs little and after all, we receive so much in return. ”

    The financial, political, and moral costs of supporting israel are beyond calculation. And far too numerous to be listed here. So let’s just consider one example. The neocon “clean break” war on Iraq cost Americans and their children trillions of dollars. And it drew the US into the abomination of committing mass murder on innocent people. Yeah, we receive “so much in return”.

  109. “If we are ever going to build a mass movement objecting to the Israeli influence we have to talk about U.S. interests.”

    Yes. But the 3rd keynote is Larry Wilkerson, and I expect he’ll do that. Last year there were excellent presentations by Paul Pillar, Gareth Porter, Jeff Blankfort and others. Do you think the conference is drifting in the wrong direction? As far as Palestinian interests don’t conflict with ours, do you see a problem in cooperation, or at least tolerance? After all, the reason Israelis manipulate the US is to guarantee their Jewish state.

    For a long time, Alexander has been subtly arguing for Israel, either that they deserve their Jews only state because of the Holocaust, or that they will go nuts and kill all the Palestinians if they feel Israel’s jewishness is threatened. I think (not that it matters, but others may agree) that Israel, via its demonic behavior, has used up any sympathy and deserving. And I hope that the emergence of conscience will stop them (all) from going crazy.

    RT West asserts that there is a burgeoning Israeli movement for peace with justice. It would be nice, but I can’t agree. That awakening is still tiny. But it is there, and worth encouraging. Don’t you think that eventually it will be an inside/outside strategy that prevails? Along with RTW’s disaffected Israeli soldiers, etc., there are artists like Natali Cohen Vaxberg. Not to everyone’s taste, perhaps, but out on the front lines, clearly.

  110. “Israel costs little and after all, we receive so much in return. ” That was rhetorical ball-bustin’. Other than defense purchases, who knows what we get in return? A good forensic accountant of the industrial persuasion could look at all the industrial connections and provide a pretty good number on which to rest our feet, but certainly more than the 5 billion (3.5 with an option on another 1.5)we dole out for foreign aid to Israel.

    I never supported Iraq. Iraq was merely the latest in a long line of B/S wars starting with Vietnam, maybe Korea even, except South Korea does make a great little car, among other things. This Syrian business, screwing around with Russia, the nonsensical ISIS and the rest is just the ongoing attempt no matter the party in power to keep the bullshit wars going. They create enemies and situations and the drumbeats start. I love the latest “South China Sea” bullshit-skirmish-of-the-week. They invent enemies and situations, send up a trial balloon and see which ones stick.

    Speaking of allies and what they cost, what does Mexico cost? Saudi Arabia? Kuwait? The business of doing business with China? Japan, the aforementioned Korea? Pick any allied nation, there are costs associated with them. Looking at the cost of nations of other people already in this country, namely Blacks and Hispanics (I prefer Hispanics to Muzzies and Blacks, actually) that cost is astronomical, but no, lets focus on the Jews, ignore those Blacks over there and what THEY cost. Israel is in the running of the smallest of them. You folks are simply pissed off that it’s those awful Jewwwws. Screw neocons, hang em all, even the Jewish neocons.

    Israel? In terms of land mass and population, big picture, they’re nothing, a sand box on the Med. Get over them, you can do it. Me I want them to survive. Any notion they won’t gets everyone blown up. They have lots of nasty nukes and some salty notions of how and when to use them.

    My associations with Israel predate the neocons, Reagan’s and Bush’s, anyway. I never had use for any of them. And they do Israel precious little good in any case. The chaos of the Arab Spring, Iraq, the Iraq/Iran war, none of it has been good for Israel in the end.

    1. You have never bothered reading PNAC’s A Clean Break or the Oded Yinon plan.
    2. You have read them, but are still trying to deceive the dumb goy into believing this “War on Islam” (otherwise known as GWOT) has not been engineered by the neocons/Israel firsters to remake the ME by regime changing those countries deemed hostile to the Zionist project, all in an effort to enhance the security of the villa in the jungle.

Moreover, Americans are making sacrifices to provide missiles and bombs so that Israel can slaughter the people of Gaza. There needs to be restrictions on campaign financing in order to cease congressional funding [Israel first Senator Tom Cotton] for those who ignore the needs of their constituents but willfully tax and borrow money for “special relationship” foreign governments.

  115. Hi RobinG ,

    Its quite clear to me that the current government of Israel has no intention of giving up on the “Greater Israel” project and its settlement enterprise. The internationally mandated two state solution is a train that has left the station in the minds of the vast majority of Israelis.

    The most one can expect is for Israel to take as much prime real estate it can,in the West Bank, and perhaps leave a few pockets of cantons, here and there, to the ” Free Reservations of Palestine”. This would be done primarily to disabuse Israel of its Apartheid moniker.

    It looks as if Gaza(or whats left of it) will be eventually absorbed into Greater Israel, the vast majority of Gazans, either dying of disease, starvation, or a few more brutal bombing runs by the I.A.F.

    I would not be surprised if there already exists a site plan, where Gaza, finally rid of its its pesky Palestinian inhabitants, will become a marvel of Israels city planning, replete with spectacular ocean side hotels, spas, condo’s, and casino’s.

    They might well rename Gaza after King Bibi, since he will most likely reside on the throne of Israel, long after the last Gazan child has taken its final breath.

    They might well name it something like “Bibiaritz “.

    I can see it all coming together, quite nicely now.

    If our “march” does come, it will come at a time when nearly 90% of the “clean break” strategy, has already been fully deployed, rendering much of the “Shia Crescent”nations into bombed out, stateless wastelands of anarchic internecine feuding……at obscene costs to the american taxpayer.

    Since perhaps less than one in a million Americans are even aware of the “internationally mandated two state solution”, less than one in ten million aware of Israels obligation to return the Golan Heights and less than one in twenty million aware of the “clean break” strategy to begin with, it is as much of an uphill battle just to educate people let alone make them responsive enough to act..

    Clearly, it was Israels “clean break” strategy, and its unfolding, that made necessary all the iniquitous transformations within our government , its willingness to commit supreme international crimes, suspend our constitution,and extract trillions from its taxpayers in the process.

    The “disguising” of these processes as well as the “disguising” of the destruction of our Republic (and its solvency),at the obeisance to the ‘clean break agenda” has been the cornerstone of the lobby’s strategy to clear the world of obstacles to a Greater Israel and its illegal settlement enterprise.

    President Obama’s failure to extract a two state solution from what was left of the peace process, may well have been the very last chance for Palestine’s existence as a viable national entity to come into its own.

    Most Americans,in becoming fully aware of these realities, might well rise up” en mass” to demand the complete ouster of the lobby, the imprisonment of a vast number of its members, and a restoration of our Republic and the laws that ensured its existence and our freedoms within it.

    But just as in the case of the USS Liberty, the lobby’s control of the mechanisms of both dissemination (within our media)and accountability( within our government)will enable an obscuring of these realities for decades to come.

    Our “march” might be a true success, on every level, to distinguish accurately what has happened to our Nation, and why, but the lobby’s control of the media may well ensure that nobody knows about it.

    Just like the USS Liberty incident…….it never happened at all.

  116. Furthermore, Moussaoui said his primary point of contact with the royal family was Prince Turki al-Faisal Al Saud, and that Turki introduced him to other prominent members of the family, including another former Saudi ambassador to Washington, Prince Bandar bin Sultan.

    Tuesday’s court filing also included statements by three members of the 9/11 Commission, former Secretary of the Navy John Lehman, and former Sens. Bob Graham and Bob Kerrey.

    Their statements do not support the specific claims Moussaoui makes, but do say that further investigation of Saudi government involvement is necessary.

    Read: Turkey willing to put troops in Syria

    “I am convinced that there was a direct line between at least some of the terrorists who carried out the Sept. 11th attacks and the government of Saudi Arabia,” Graham wrote.

  117. Robin – Wilkerson is not a keynote so we have an Israeli and Palestinian keynoting a conference that is allegedly about American national security, as I noted before. I have no problem cooperating with Palestinians or even Israelis but they should not be the focus of our efforts. In fact, if we are talking about American interests foreign voices should be very much peripheral. If you want to discuss in more detail conferences etc. we should do so by email. Your hotmail email address does not work but you can link up with me through Facebook.

Go stay with the Israeli Air Force, work with those folks. Party with them. Travel Israel and experience what they’ve built, the sheer quality of their people.

    Then talk to me about Jews, about Israel. I’ve read all your anti-Israel articles and opinions, yours and others. I get it, you hate the relationships and tricks and strategies Israel pursues to survive. Go there, work with their military, look at the tiny slice of sand they occupy. It is a miracle what they’ve done there. And they want to share, but Muslims blow them up and hate them for it. At the grass roots, from where I sit, Palestinians and Hamas and Hezbollah don’t look too smart to me.

    Nor do you gents. If you haven’t been there, on the ground, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, , you don’t know shit. We will have to agree to disagree, like civilized men do.

  121. You’ll never convince me of your view of Israel and Jews in general. Jews here in the states have been honest, fair, square, profitable, generous and kind to me in times of grief.

    I think this is usually projection on the part of philo-Semites. I.e., they would never say the things about Jews that “anti-Semites” say about Jews without thinking that Jews were (all) dishonest, cheating, chiseling, stingy jerks, so neither can the “anti-Semites.”

    I think philo-Semites should stop “filling in the blanks” so much for “anti-Semites.” If you’re wondering, just ask FFS.

    I’ve never characterized all (or even most) Jews as nasty people on a personal scale. No, the nastiness comes when you challenge their Jewish Privilege. E.g., ask your Jewish friends if white peoples should be allowed to have for themselves what Jews have for themselves in Israel. Watch the subject-changing, special pleading, and obfuscation that ensues. Watch them drop you like a hot rock if you call them on their BS, or bring it up too often.

    It’s easy to be friendly when you’re the master of the plantation, and the slaves are docile.

    How nice Jews have been to you really isn’t much of an argument.

    Hi Geo,

    There’s a backlog of points you’ve made that I want to respond to. (I’ll stop “insisting” that you are all about the march. Sorry, that’s just the impression I’ve had.) Meanwhile, another addition to your list of possible speakers/planners is Col. Pat Lang. Here’s a reference from Plato’s Guns.

    Colonel Lang’s “Drinking the Koolaid,” which Harper’s Magazine commissioned in 2003 or 2004, then refused to print it. ….. It’s long, but worth every minute reading it. It was written in 2004, and had Harper’s had the guts to print it, might have ended the war, and certainly affected the 2004 election. A keeper.

  123. I do not understand criticizing a ruler for pursuing every advantage he can get for his country.

  124. Here is a more recent article on the honorable Colonel Patrick Lang blog: http://turcopolier.typepad.com/sic_semper_tyrannis/2016/01/httpwwwrawstorycom201601pentagon-chief-ashton-carter-some-partners-in-anti-isis-alliance-do-nothing-at-all.html

    and his comment: “…I spent an eternity dealing with the Borgists. “…they are ignorant, or stupid, or ill informed” Yes they really are all of that because the disease of social science malarky has dominated our educational system long enough to wipe out nearly all individual and rational thought in favor of conformism built in graduate schools across the country.” pl

  125. “Nor do you gents. If you haven’t been there, on the ground, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, , you don’t know shit.”

    Very rational argument why America should mortgage its future and alienate the rest of the world to support an occult obsession.

  128. If you haven’t been there, on the ground, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, you don’t know shit…Travel Israel and experience what they’ve built, the sheer quality of their people.

    You make a very valid point, JC. While it’s true that most of Israel’s critics haven’t been there, a few have, including Max Blumenthal. As a matter of fact, Max spent 4 years traveling throughout Israel while doing research for his book Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel.

    Here’s how one reviewer summarized this book:

    For those who have not already escaped the white-washed American and Israeli narrative on the country, the book will shatter idealized notions of the Zionist state…

    Blumenthal’s Goliath is an exploration of an increasingly extremist, racist, and militaristic Israel…

    In particular, Blumenthal’s book illustrates one of the major problems in Israel today, namely a persisting state of emergency. Since the country’s inception, the Israeli government has not lifted the emergency law. Through the perpetual extension of emergency status, the state has been able to justify the regulation of just about anything in the name of national security…

    Though the comparison to Nazi Germany is ironic, it is a bitter irony that forces the reader to wonder: “How could a people escaping such a horrific past bear to inflict the same pain on others?”…

    As Israel continues to transforms into a virulent, fascist state, Blumenthal’s book ends with a glimmer of hope. He reports that one-thirteenth of all Israelis currently live outside of the country. Many of these individuals are affluent, educated, secular, and liberal…

    These expatriates told Blumenthal they are relieved to be out of the country and immersed in more multicultural and tolerant societies where they feel free to forge friendships with people of all backgrounds.Hopefully these citizens will return home to Israel and help affect change in ways that will bring about a much-needed social and cultural revolution inside the country.

    Now, let’s see if I can guess what your response will be. Does it go something along the lines that “Max is a self-hating Jew and has provided a distorted picture of what life is truly like in Eretz Israel. Pay no heed to him, he’s a self-hating Jew!”?

    From one concerned goy, peace be upon you.

  129. I do not understand criticizing a ruler for pursuing every advantage he can get for his country.

    Neither do I, GD. But I suppose what most Americans are yearning for is for one of their rulers to “pursue every advantage he can get for [their] country.”

  130. Occult obsession? Really! Check into the loss of the top 100 cities to the Blacks for an occult, Black run, feminist obsession that has ruined our cities, robbed our churches, universities, our formerly great culture. Look and assess the destruction. But there are the Jews, always the Jews. Accept responsibility, Junior. Look at the source of destruction to the United States. It was the Liberal, feminist, politically correct, Black-run destruction of our institutions. The Jews had nothing to do with THAT. Sorry, children. You chase the wrong group. Cowards, all of you. Easy to blame Jews when the source of the destruction is Blacks and the feminists. Again, you’re cowards. If the Blacks and feminists were weaker than Jews, you would attack the Blacks and feminists.

    Madly, you look for scapegoats and pick the Jews. Re-align your target groups for the destruction.

  131. Hi, Robin. Thanks for sharing the article. The part I liked most was at the very beginning:

    Throughout my long service life in the Department of Defense, first as an army officer and then as a member of the Defense Intelligence Senior Executive Service, there was a phrase in common usage: “I will fall on my sword over that.” It meant that the speaker had reached a point of internal commitment with regard to something that his superiors wanted him to do and that he intended to refuse even though this would be career suicide. The speaker preferred career death to the loss of personal honor.

    This phrase is no longer widely in use. What has taken its place is far more sinister in its meaning and implications. “I drank the Kool-Aid” is what is now said.

    I think adding Colonel Lang as a possible speaker/planner makes eminent sense.

  132. I’ve heard others talk about the Israeli as a tough, heart and soul.
    I don’t doubt it.

    I believe Israel should be an Ally.

    Just not an incestuous one.

  133. And they want to share, but Muslims blow them up and hate them for it.

    Share? The zionists want to ‘share’ what they stole! And every year, they keep stealing more … one settlement after another.

  134. I could read your anti-Semitic publications. They’re cherry-picked and verified anti-Jew. That’s why you point me to them.

    btw, JC. Just wanted to point out that, based on your response, it’s obvious case #1 applies – i.e. you have never read these documents.

    Rather than being “anti-Semitic publications,” as you allege, they were written by pro-Semitic writers who had the chutzpah to put on paper how defenders of the Zionist entity should go about enhancing the security of the villa in the jungle. I guess they didn’t realize at the time how accessible these documents would become (thanks to the Internet), or didn’t care as the chances that the “dumb goy” would get their act together and actually do something about it were deemed to be close to nil.

  137. Geo,

    That’s what has been missing from American politics for most of my adult life. Pols from both parties make it impossible to tell whose team they’re really playing for.
