“It made no difference which Palestinians we killed… They either were terrorists or would become terrorists or they gave birth to terrorists.”

– former IDF commander, Rafael “ Raful” Eitan.

Spies, Femme fatale, deadly plots, killings, bombs, knives, guns, and an array of unique murderous weaponry that would make James Bond and “Q” envious. All this, combined with dozens of unapologetic and brutal cloak and dagger assassinations in foreign locales worldwide? Sounds like the makings of a great spy thriller.

Indeed. But, despite decades of Israeli denial… this story is true.

Ronen Bergman’s book, “Rise and Kill First,” was released in late 2018 to what, considering the inflammatory subject, was relatively little fanfare. While this might seem surprising, on reading this important chronological documentary of the inception and development of Israel’s worldwide assassination program it becomes clear that this book does provide a unique, very detailed and accurate history of Israel’s hundreds of extrajudicial killings over the past fifty plus years.

However, when read with just the right eyes, other far more important and separate timelines of history appear within the book to the reader already wary of the definition and rise of modern Zionism. Of these other unmentioned chronologies within the 530 pages, the author fails miserably in connecting these dots of his own excellent, but thus too superficial, presentation of fact.

What this book does more importantly reveal is a multi-faceted unmasking of Israel’s steady descent from the moral to the immoral tactics of war; the myth that it’s past Prime Ministers were not also barbaric terrorists and sacrosanct; the ongoing descent of other world leaders willing to give up their own conscience into the same mental abyss; the ever-increasing control of Israel over the minds of the American military, the CIA , its media and its politicians; and that Israel has never truly embraced peace as a foreign policy, preferring war and genocide instead.

Worse, “Rise and Kill First” reveals the true mind of the modern Israeli that has been infected by the rise of orthodox Jewish Likud party: An aberration of conscience that has no value for non-Jewish life worldwide whatsoever in its pursuit of its singular goal: Greater Israel.

“If someone comes to kill you, rise up and kill him first!”

– The Babylonian Talmud.

“An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth” has been embraced in the routine alternative to turning the other cheek by Israel as foreign policy since its inception. This implies violent retaliation and retribution. But this book, when taken in totality, more accurately redefines this age-old Israeli mantra to its current Zionist definition, “Rise-up and kill first!”

The author’s failures in connecting the dots of his own excellently researched chronology are what makes this book a must-read. For observers of Israeli / Zionist hegemony of territory- and of mind- what Ronen omits are the many other chronologies that well illustrate, by his own documentation, why Israeli Zionism is indeed a threat that must be vanquished. These connections are obvious, yet omitted.

We need not wonder why.


In documenting Israel’s unknown – and always denied- program of targeted killings, Ronen’s work appears exceptional. What he presents is the result of seven years of his ongoing interviews of the scores of military and later political players who were the controllers of this seventy-five-year history of Israeli military development of domination and increased hegemony by assassination. The chronology begins with the killing of Tom Wilkin as far back as 1944 because of his role in very effectively infiltrating and disrupting the Jewish underground in Palestine as it forced the way for eventual Israel. At that time long ago before Zionism prevailed in establishing for the first time a Jewish nation, the assassination was not yet a sanctified national military program. That would change.

While the reader must take the details as presented since independent corroboration from these witnesses is nigh on impossible, the book is extensively footnoted and on very few occasions does Ronen fail to directly identify the names of his sources which he professionally cross-references against each other for validity. The credibility of the facts he presents seems evident.

His prima facie chronology of a book is a rollicking ride. Ronen is a good storyteller and he takes the reader through the details of the book from killing after killing and the planning and execution of each orchestrated plot. Loaded with salacious details aplenty, the author uses dozens of case studies from past Israeli hits to show the ongoing development and inception of the many new Israeli military and intelligence services, ongoing improvement in the tactics of the kill and the year-by-year increase in the willingness of Israel and its leaders to kill beyond their own borders while ever descending from the existing human conscience. His subject well in hand, Ronen treats the reader to a real page-turner of a spy novel.

The book picks up the modern era of Zionist expansion and assassination as WWII draws to a close with the Nuremberg trials and the flight of Nazi war criminals to other countries. Retribution is the key to these many stories as Israeli operatives systematically track down and arrest or kill those they accuse, such as Adolf Eichmann in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

As is the case with most books from Israeli authors on the subject of Israel, Ronen falls too conveniently upon the hyperbole of the Holocaust as reason for this initial killing and rendition program, but without proper examination. These killings first occur during the inception of the post-war development of Israel, the fact of which Ronen is far too brief and equally serving of the Israeli narratives since the historical slaughter and expropriation of Palestinians is glossed over.

As the author proceeds with his chronology, the reader is treated to a very fine and detailed description of many such major world events like the Munich Olympics kidnappings of 1972, the raid on Entebbe, Uganda and many, many more. Ronen does a very good job of cross-referencing the details of these many events with a plethora of interviews and quotes from the operatives directly involved at the time. What he reveals each time is quite likely the best examination of these events so far provided in print. Regarding Munich, he delves in great detail into the full rescue effort that includes the involvement of the German government which was at loggerheads with the Israelis and the IDF in the attempted and failed rescue.

Ronen’s effectiveness and credibility are challenged, however, by his almost constant insistence – by reference- that the Israeli actions he presents are invariably only retaliatory for a specific act of aggression by pro-Palestinian factions against Israelis. Ronen too routinely demonizes the Palestinian and Arab players’ actions and uses them too often as a fait a compli for their own eventual demise while rarely looking at the Israeli atrocity that preceded a Palestinian attack which led to yet another Israeli targeted killing.

During this period of the book, Ronen does a very good job documenting the change in the policy of the Israeli assassinations from executions only within Palestinian territories to the eventual decision to perform these assassinations globally. Ronen, although predominantly showing successful operations, does not shy away from Israel’s many failures as well.

He presents as almost comical the Manchurian Candidate-like attempt to brainwash, month after month, a Palestinian prisoner code-named “Fatkhi,” who is deemed to be mentally susceptible to these techniques and who, it was intended, would next be sent back to Palestine to assassinate PLO president Yasser Arafat. The results of this humorous vignette, after month’s of careful mental revision of the test subject assassin, are that the prisoner is finally freed on Dec. 19, 1969, by allowing him to cross the Jordan river. Due to equally poor planning, is swept down river and left clinging to a mid-river rock. When finally making it to shore Fatkhi immediately runs to the PLO police headquarters and then informs Arafat of all that he had endured at Israeli hands during his nine months of obviously unsuccessful programming.

When it comes to Arafat, the book shows the absolute hatred of Israel towards him personally due to his effectiveness as PLO chairman, a hatred that grows almost maniacally in the hearts of every Prime Minister and IDF commander as Arafat, again and again, evades their seemingly well planned and very numerous attempts to bump him off. This hatred is only made worse by the rising worldwide respect for Arafat and the PLO cause after each failed attempt.

It is at this stage in the book that beyond the demand for Arafat’s blood Israel crosses the mental Rubicon from respect for human life- other than the target- to allowing for and condoning the innocent to also be killed as a matter of convenience to each plot. The assassinations of foreign scientist involved in the burgeoning nuclear programs in Iraq, Iran and Egypt began this slope downward.

Although Ronen fails to bring this point to the reader’s attention, he unwittingly documents in exceptional detail this change in conscience and therefore terror tactics which he best illustrates in the example of the Ashkelon murders.

“I do not remember an event of similar gravity in the history of the state of Israel

-Yehudit Karp, Israeli Deputy Attorney General for special duties

In understanding the change of the Israeli military and political mind towards that of proactive and routine utilization of terror by assassination, the Ashkelon affair is a seminal point in the book. This connection should not have been overlooked by Ronen; for what this case actually meant to subsequent Israeli war tactics was a complete change in morals of its leaders and that this change would devolve within leaders in other countries as well, particularly America.

On April 12, 1984, four Palestinian youths, three of whom were teenagers- the other twenty years of age- hijacked a bus heading en route from Tel Aviv to Ashkelon with forty Israelis aboard. Taking the passengers hostage with one knife and a fake bomb made of an old suitcase with wires dangling out from its seams for effect, they intended to get the bus to Palestine and next negotiate the release of 500 Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli jails.

When IDF troops eventually disabled the bus a stand-off ensues and negotiations for surrender begin with optimism for a peaceful resolution since, as future PM, Ehud Barak, who was on scene at the time assessed, “the hijackers would [likely] agree to let the hostages go in exchange for a few sandwiches.” But at 4:43 AM Sayeret Matkal (one of the many Israeli military factions) soldiers open fire killing two of the hijackers immediately and an Israeli woman instead.

Apprehended, the two remaining Palestinians are taken by Shin Bet (Israeli Intelligence Service similar the the American CIA) operatives under direction of the infamous Avraham (Avrum) Shalom, the longtime head of Shin Bet who, as Ronen showcases during previous killings, is a man predisposed of secretly sanctioned powers to kill with impunity and without authorization. As Ronen quotes Yuval Diskin, an eventual Shin Bet chief, “ We feared him… He was a strong man, brutal, clever, very stubborn, uncompromising, a real ass kicker.”

And so, since Shalom was not in favor of live terrorists being tried in court, hours later after first ordering the two Palestinians moved away from witnesses to a dank Shin Bet interrogation basement cell, next he allows/orders the soldiers transporting them to stop by the roadside en route and bludgeon them to death with rocks and iron bars to make it look like Israeli settlers had performed a different vendetta.

Then Shalom relaxes, safe in the knowledge that his personal barbarity was sanctioned from the top all the way to then PM Yitzhak Shamir, who had formerly been in charge of the same killing unit when so many innocent foreign scientist were put to death-secretly- at his whim as well. This was confirmed by Carmi Gillon, head of Shin Bet in the ’90s who assessed, “…he [Shalom] felt as if he could do whatever he wanted to do.” Within this subject, Ronen exposes the secret killing program know as “Weights” that was created by Shalom. Assesses the author:

“They were officially sanctioned extrajudicial killings, proposed to the head of Shin Bet by his senior commanders, approved by him and then the Prime Minister, first Rabin and then Begin and Shamir.”

What next transpires is what Ronen very accurately refers to as a “coup.” This was Shalom’s government-sanctioned barbarity vs. existing military and civil law: Laws that at that time favoured a proper conscience of man in wartime and therefore respect for human life. When the dust would settle several years later, the rule of law and its strictures would no longer functionally exist. And the mind of the modern Zionist would instead be set free to roam the earth.

Shalom would have, as so many times before escaped scrutiny, except for fate, a very inconvenient camera and that three senior Shit Bet officers would not lower their own moral values in kind.

Israeli press photographer Alex Levac had taken pictures of the arrest of the two remaining live Palestinians and managed to stash the film before being searched by a Birds soldier (another IDF special ops sub-set) for doing so.

When Levac’s final few shots disproved the IDF narrative that all four Palestinians had been killed at the scene of the bus incident, his editor’s at Hadashot tried to go with the story but were hit by IDF censors. However, someone leaked the story to Stern and the NYT along with the photo. When the story blew up, then PM Shamir and Shalom did all they could to stop the subsequent formal inquiry in its tracks.

In preparation for this coup, ten of Shalom’s men and co-conspirators meet in a distant orange grove under the direction of Gen. Yossi Ginosser, to ironically avoid Shin Bet listening devices and surveillance. Here they effect their plan which includes taking down their comrade, Brigadier General Yitzhak Mordechai, a man of impeccable reputation-and a personal friend of Ginnoser- who had commanded the troops at the scene of the bus- as the patsy.

When next Ginosser, with the full knowledge of Shalom, weaves a web of deceit designed to thwart the inquiry, they also seek to shift their crime to Mordechai by testifying that, due to their observations that day it was Mordechai who had given the order to kill the Palestinians. The court conveniently certifies their plot by clearing Shalom and company and next Mordechai is charged with manslaughter in their stead.

But fate then smiles on Mordechai when a military advocate, Menahem Finkelstein, who was on the first inquiry panel subsequently is involved in the decision on whether Mordechai is to be indicted for manslaughter, notices many inconsistencies in testimony and facts. Despite this, Shin Bet and the Justice Ministry insist- for obvious reasons- that Mordechai be prosecuted. Thanks to Finkelstein, however, Mordechai is, after being indicted, finally acquitted.

If this had been the end of the story it would have been relatively insignificant. But, during this lengthy saga three senior Shit Bet officials including Reuven Hazak,(Ronen does not name the other two) who was already tapped as Shalom’s successor to head the IDF, were having trouble sleeping. They concluded that justice would only be served by the collective resignations of all the conspirators including Shalom.

Shalom refuses and Hazak next goes directly to then PM Shimon Peres, who had replaced Shamir a year before. What Hazak does not know is that Shalom had already launched a preemptive strike of his own with Perez, who, after placating Hazak, next allows Shalom to sack all three whistleblowers. As the author notes:

“They departed in disgrace from the service they had given their lives to, estranged from their colleagues, who were given to believe that they were traitors.”

However, the three are undaunted, collectively showing up unannounced in the dead of night to the office of Israel’s Attorney General, Yitzhak Zamir, whom himself has previously signed off on many an Israeli hit. After spilling their guts for many hours about the true story of the Palestinians of Ashkelon and the frame-up of Mordechai, Deputy attorney general Yehudit Karp years later recalled to Ronen:

“ I felt as if the sky had fallen. It is not possible to exaggerate what happened there. It was a gross undermining of the rule of law and corruption of all the systems. I do not remember an event of similar gravity in the history of the State of Israel.”

When Attorney General Zamir immediately calls for a new inquiry and Israel police launched a second concurrent investigation, Shalom refuses to yield. He and his other Shit Bet conspirators next begin direct intimidation of their own against Israel Judicial officials that was so extreme that Attorney General Zamir and others within the prosecution were assigned 24-hour police protection. From Shin Bet!

Shalom and company now appear to be cornered on all sides with the power of the full Justice Ministry now steaming directly at them. But Shalom has one last card to play. A trump card as it turned out.

Shalom, Ginosser and the others involved produce what Ginosser termed, The Skulls Dossier: A list of the secret and never revealed skeletons in the closet of not only the Shit Bet and Weights but, worse, of the former leaders who became Israeli Prime Ministers themselves afterwards. Ronen sums up:

“ In reality, it was pure blackmail, an implicit threat that if Shalom and his allies were indicted, they would take others with them, including Prime Ministers.”

The denouement of this end to the power of the civilian Israel courts over the military came quickly in a final move by former PM Shamir (who had full knowledge of the plot ), then current PM Shimon Peres (who had approved Shalom’s plot) and future PM Yitzhak Rabin who was at the time defense minister. They convince then Israeli president Chaim Herzog to hand down “all-encompassing pardons to the implicated Shit bet personnel, covering all proceedings against them. Eleven men were thus exonerated before they’d even been indicted.”

When challenged by the media about his own complicity in covering up the Ashkelon affair and covert operations Herzog was unabashed, stating, “That way [a trial] perhaps sixty to eighty affairs from the past would have emerged. Would that have been good for the country?”

As of this last day of the Ashkelon affair, Israeli respect for law, morality and the proper conscience of man would begin its steady descent towards the gates of hell where the souls of men like Shalom, Shamir, Begin and Netanyahu and their other Zionist ilk still seek mental refuge today.


“The attacks on 9/11 gave our own war international legitimacy. We were able to completely untie the ropes that had bound us.”

– Shin Bet chief, Yuval Diskin.

While the aforementioned brief synopsis of the Ashkelon Affair does not do justice to Ronen’s much better and very detailed and footnoted portrayal, it is this parable that shows the inherent value of “Rise and Kill First” that is not garnered at the hands of the author. For, to the Ziologist- those predisposed to understanding the post-1967 worldwide threat of Israeli inspired Zionism- this one parable should ring true as a much too close parallel to what we see in today’s Israel and it’s American vassal.

Few observers of current American foreign policy would argue against the premise that its operations are today controlled by the Zionist elements on the rise in Israel due to a directly proportional rise of the Jewish orthodox influenced Likud Party. What is also important to note is that the Ashkelon affair took place more than thirty-five years ago: Before America eventually followed this example in lock-step.

It would, thus, be easy to substitute the names Bolton, Pompeo or Abrams for that of Shalom, or that of Chelsea Manning, Julian Assange or William Binney for the three Shin Bet officers who also took a moral stand that was brutally put down by a Zionist mentality revolted by inconvenient truth and the demands of correct conscience. It would also be easy to substitute the CIA for Shin Bet as the likely leaders of American extrajudicial killings currently sanctioned worldwide by an administration whose cajones are obviously in the fists of a Zionist controlled cadre transplanted into Langley, VA.

But should the reader of this review not yet see the value of this book as the narration of a chronology and history of the ongoing and increasing control over foreign and American governments alike, perhaps Ronen’s documentation of Israel’s “Red Pages” might help with one’s proper epiphany.

Red Pages are the death sentences for extrajudicial killings, once signed by Israeli Prime Ministers prior to the assassination of the victim. This began more than fifty years ago. Readers capable of objective historical understanding of the Obama administration should well know that is was during this time in American history that America followed the Israeli model and began the Tuesday Morning Briefings where, under America’s Nubian president in black-face, American foreign policy succumbed to CIA pressure and to the Zionist military business model wholesale and began allowing the extrajudicial killings of anyone offered up weekly for sacrifice by the CIA, including the innocent… and American citizens as well.

Within the book we follow these many Red Pages- named for the color of the document- as they morph from close civilian scrutiny within established law, to Israel changing the law for convenience in John Woo fashion under Bush II and eventually signing the equivalent Red Pages each week in secret in Washington and without concern whatsoever for Law or conscience. Or US judicial oversight.

The use of Red Pages by Israel began under Golda Meir who had already approved many assassinations and was predisposed to do the same to Black September leader Mahmoud Hamshari. Meir, however, was uncomfortable shouldering full responsibility and instead convened a panel of civilian leaders to formally approve the Red Page. At this time in history, the early ’70s, Israel had just begun assassinations outside of Israel, Palestine and Lebanon, but was not willing to hurt the innocent in the crossfire. As Meir told Mike Harari, former Mossad boss, before approving the hit, which would see Hamshari taken out in France, “be sure not a hair falls from the head of a French citizen.”

But by 1977, Israel under PM Menachem Begin saw him merely signing off all Red Page requests without reservation or committee and upon request and “ Begin signed off on operations face-to-face, without a stenographer and without his military aid.”

In 1983 Israel next began approving targeted killings of foreign diplomats. First to go down was Iranian ambassador to Syria, Ali Akbar Mohtashamipur. At this point, targeted killing was routinely justified to stop likely future terrorist acts or as the Israelis called it, “negative treatment.” Still, these had to be approved at the highest level, but this proved far too restrictive to developing Israeli tactics. The next step was to re-brand the killings as an “interception” which conveniently no longer required authorization from the PM. As Ronen quotes a Northern Command officer,

“ …a precedent was created by which an assassination operation was called something else… in order to enable a lower echelon to approve it. Killing a man no longer required the prime minister’s approval.”

A different precedent was also created at the same time: that of killing retroactively as well as proactively.

By the time the US began using drones for its own targeted killings Israel- the first to use drones for this purpose had been doing so for years with a precursor drone program of its own. Here the Red Page definition for approval was further lowered. Using the new term, “illegal combatant” the forerunner of Donald Rumsfeld infamous, “enemy combatant,” after protracted debate the Israeli judiciary sided with the military in broadening the right to kill the innocent. As Ronen points out after laying out the details:

“The term allowed [killing]anyone active in a terrorist organization; even if his activity was marginal… he could be considered as a combatant-even when asleep in his bed-unlike a soldier on leave who had taken off his uniform.”

The culmination of this step-by-step decline in the value for human life was best exemplified in Ronen’s description of the killing of Hamas political leader, Mahmoud al-Zahar. He was not considered to be an imminent threat and was, as described by Israeli General Giora Eiland ” an elderly, pitiable, half-blind cripple in a wheelchair.” Further advanced planning predicted that the operation to kill al-Zahar ” would have implications as far as hurting uninvolved persons…”

Ariel Sharon, who as detailed repeatedly in the book is the embodiment of the barbaric tactics within the modern Zionist soul, approves the killing in an operation titled, ” Picking Anemones.”

The result is that al- Zahar dies from a hell Fire missile fired through his apartment window and many men women and children in the building join him in the rubble of what is left of Israel’s former allusion of adherence to humanity.

As Ronen takes the reader through the decades, what becomes clear, besides Israel’s descent from conscience, is the effect this full chronology has had on the world, particularly America. A single footnote on page 702 reveals the tight editorial control that likely allowed for the publishing of his book only by deliberate omission of the obvious connections, but also unwelcome facts. Following an interview with General Giora Eiland who assessed correctly, “The American approach to targeted killings has changed from one end to the other,” he follows up by quoting former US Home Land Security boss Michael Chertoff, who adds, regarding American targeted killings worldwide, ” I think they are very much better than non-targeted killings.”

But the many connections missed by Ronen but showcased non-the-less in his book go beyond his detailed story of the ongoing military take over of Israel judiciary and political institutions and the ever-changing definitions of Red Pages and therefore the value of human life.

For the Ziologist interested in adding Ronen’s history to his memory texts, one will also find within a similar descent of other world leaders and the United Nations; the rise of the Likud party under the influence of Jewish orthodoxy as spearhead to these changes; the rolling over of the media against examining Israeli atrocities; the steady insertion of ” dual loyalty” Zionists into the intelligence services of America, Britain, France and Europe; and Israel’s eventual utter disregard for world opinion and outrage primarily because of its infection into the aforementioned facet of world society.

Although Ronen fails, again and again, to make these connections, his excellent research, interviews and cross-referencing within the scores of assassinations he documents make these connections, however, irrefutable. This leaves the Ziologist -or the casually concerned reader of Israeli modern history- to draw one encompassing conclusion: Israeli Zionism is the singular cancer that has been forcefully injected into the minds of world leaders across the globe; a cancer that these similarly affected leaders would wantonly force upon what little remains of the moral, civilized and correct conscience of man.

Ronen failed to make any of these many and all too obvious connections. If he had, the book would have been a bombshell.

His failures are also why the reader has not likely heard of his book, and… why it managed to be published at all.

  4. Quite an article.

    Toynbee wrote that an expanding culture does so because of a “creative minority” _and_ because the success of this minority is imitated. The West, while it was expanding, was widely imitated, the Meiji Restoration being one of many attempts. The British in India faced forces with European weapons and, according to one source I read well over a decade ago, European leadership on the company and squad levels. The imitation came about because nothing else had succeeded, and to an extent because the Western way gave greater mastery over nature. This sort of imitation is apparently the usual way of things during cultural expansion, and is largely responsible for the expansion. The old ruling groups are opposed internally by those who want what the expanding group has. Recent example: Egypt, 1950.
    When the society stops expanding, there is a tendency to attribute its previous success to military ability, and to rely entirely on military ability for the society’s maintenance. This can go so var as to act on the assumption that military force is military force, so hire foreigners (or professionals with their own culture) to employ it, but it doesn’t start that way.
    It starts as Redmayne’s article describes.

    Back after WW II, the film “Exodus” was taken very seriously in the US as literal truth. Israel was, in a way, something to be imitated. It looked like the Jewish establishment had finally managed a breakout from being without a home, and would emerge as another industrialized nation in the Enlightenment model. Nobody thinks that today; the admiration is gone, tolerance has replaced it, and Israel has done what Toynbee described as the usual — relying on force to achieve what only admiration can accomplish.

    I’ll forego analysis of the US.

    In related news, water also continues to run downhill.

    I read this book several months ago, shortly after it was first published. I wasn’t looking for it, just noticed it in my local Barnes and Noble, and read it in a few hours at the coffee bar as I’ve read so many other books. Two things struck me about it. One was the fact that Israel has been responsible for so many of these state sponsored terrorist assassinations (although the US may be catching up thanks to its drone strikes). The other is that the Israeli deep state wants this known, in general if not in every specific operational detail. The Mossad wants the general public everywhere to know its global reach and to “be afraid, be very afraid”.

    Can we now discuss assassinating members of the US Israeli Fifth Column and assorted other War Mongering Political Figures as a preventative to more ME wars?

    I am for it. It is certainly morally preferable to having more hundreds of thousands of civilians killed by the Israel-US , and now Saudi .

    Pleases don’t tell me ..”assassinating people isn’t who we are“. It is who we are, we’ve done it with drones and let Israel do it for decades without any objections.

  10. They’re still doing it to this day wherever they can:

    What if all those Arabs and Muslims would rise up and kill every member of a Zionist organisation? Wouldn’t that be prevention of future crimes they advocate, fund, plan, prepare, and execute?

    Israel crosses the mental Rubicon from respect for human life- other than the target- to allowing for and condoning the innocent

    Now, I do not want to belittle the author’s effort, but was that Rubicon ever crossed? There had been the Irgun, who always spread terror, the Kennedy-assasinations made numerous secondary killings necessary to keep up the script. The effort to force European Jews to leave their homes made it necessary to foment extreme violence against their own jewish people. Eichmann was not just the leading Nazi monster, but just as much the point man to force the exodus from Europe.

    Last but not least, I would mention the extreme psychological violence against any jewish person in the wotld who does not stand by the Zionist entity.
    This whole discussion of when Israel lost its moral high ground – which it never had in the first place, or do I need to type here the name of Deir Yassin? – is nothing but a good cop/ bad cop play.
    I feel for any jewish person who cannot disengage from this sick story.

    Jewish people, as an old nation, is a hopeless failure.
    Being a nation for thousands years, your people with few population, your land is small and surrounded by hostile neighbors. Your core value and culture is exclusive/close-minded/highly religion-originated and self-complimentary, which mean you can’t really grow. As long as you can’t grow, you are minority, you easily become the scapegoat no matter sin or not.
    Doesn’t really matter that much whether you are superior or you can take the dominant position in the shadow. As long as you can’t lead the majority people under the sunshine, you are doom to be a failure.
    To lead the majority, you need to be the majority, unit the majority, speak and do benefits for the majority, no matter what kind of people the majority is made up of.

    As is the case with most books from Israeli authors on the subject of Israel, Ronen falls too conveniently upon the hyperbole of the Holocaust as reason for this initial killing and rendition program, but without proper examination.

    Therein lies a big reason for the invention of the easily debunked & fake ‘6,000,000 Jews’ & laughably impossible ‘gas chambers’.

    Zionism has cut a path of genocide, rape, assassination and even ritual sacrifice across the last 2 centuries, if not 2 millennia. Zionism is histories biggest crime against humanity and Zionists are the Ur-Nazis, or the master race of Nazism. Rabbi’s are its SS.

    What the author of this article and the book both fail to discuss is the ritual aspects of these slaughters and the involvement of Rabbi’s. Mossad, like Charlie Manson’s family, were merely the tools used to perform the ritual. Just as Charlie sent the mind controlled runaways to perform the ritual sacrifice of Tate and her unborn child, so it is Rabbi’s who are sending Mossad to perform these ritual assassinations in order to advance the fulfillment of their talmudic prophesies.

    Rabbi’s and the Judaism that they control represent the mother of all mafias. It would be pointless to try to blame any other race or people for genocide, or slavery, or even usury, until the primary source of the fountain of genocide in Israel is exposed and brought to justice.

    no, Zionism not a mind injected cancer, it is a system of economics, called Economic Zionism. <= I do agree, its participants, must possess a humanless bit of intelligence, still, though, the object of the system is to achieve total monopoly power over all things, all places and all persons.. EZ takes no prisoners, it allows no competition, not even the threat of competition is allowed to survive <which means "even if" there is no competition per se, just elements necessary for a possible future rise of competition to develop (like infra structure, independent banking, a system of government with military strength<= strong enough to deny the practice of EZ within its jurisdiction) then those elements will, as a matter of course, be destroyed.

    EZ teaches that all persons, even its own (as in the book reported above), are tools that must be used, when needed, to accomplish, maintain and expand the hegemonic monopoly power so characteristic of the EZ system of economics. EZ is a system of economics that discounts and replaces nations, humanity and mankind with self.

    Back to your point, cancer is a pathology leading to the destruction of a biological structure, EZ is system to delivers reward to self.

    Capitalism is a precursor to Economic Zionism.. Capitalism encourages competition, but it requires alert and intense state supervision to prevent it from becoming EZ. The most successful competitors in capitalism often possess the mental states necessary to move from a system of economics that shares and distributes it fruits among its players, to a system which does not share its fruits at all.

    Indeed it never had a moral high ground in the first place. The Zionists were already terrorists in Palestine before Israel was even created : terrorist attacks on Arabs, on the British, the murder of count Bernadotte and of Lord Moyne, King David Hotel, Deir Yassin etc., etc..Israel even attacked its big ally the US : Lavon Affair, attack on the Liberty and last but not least 9/11. The murder of JFK probably also belongs here (see Michael Collins Piper, Final Judgment). Israel is a terrorist rogue state. It has not “declined” morally, it has always been criminal.

    For those who naively believe that the Zionists have “declined morally” as compared to their Biblical ancestors, I would advise them to read the Old Testament critically. Read about the genocide of the Canaanites, the crimes of terrorist King David etc. etc.

    Israel crosses the mental Rubicon from respect for human life- other than the target- to allowing for and condoning the innocent

    I almost choked when I read that quote too, and the same question occurred to me. From what I understand about the devotees of political Zionism, it’s nothing if not a gang of thugs with sadistic tendencies drunk on power, (we can do anything we want, and in-your-face too), that never had any respect for human life, either goy or non-goy, and it’s obvious that the gangsters get their kicks from humiliating, torturing, taunting and controlling people in the most hideous manners possible.

    This whole discussion of when Israel lost its moral high ground – which it never had in the first place, or do I need to type here the name of Deir Yassin?

    The former soldier turned peace activist, Yuri Avnery would probably agree, and his 1948. A Soldier’s Tale – The Bloody Road to Jerusalem has many examples of atrocities committed by Zionists on the innocent and defenseless for the sheer sadistic thrill of it.

    I’d like to thank Brett Redmayne-Titley for a well written review of a not-so-widely known book on an important topic. The events described in the book are chilling, and even more so are the facts that have been intentionally left out, as Mr. Redmayne points out in his analysis.

    I have a question for Mr. Redmayne: about half way into your review, you describe a story from the book: an “almost comical” Manchurian Candidate-like attempt in 1969 to brainwash, month after month, a Palestinian prisoner code-named “Fatkhi”. According to the book, the attempt was not successful.

    To me, this story brings to mind the assassination in 1968 of Bobby Kennedy, which was supposedly also carried out by a Palestinian, Sirhan Sirhan. When interrogated, Sirhan appeared confused and had no memory of the actual shooting. A psychologist and hypnosis expert spent 35 hours talking to Sirhan in prison, and concluded that he was likely psychologically programmed, i.e., brainwashed, into committing the murder. (Or to be a distraction at, and take the blame for, the murder, while the bullet that actually killed Kennedy was fired by someone else.)

    My question is: does the book contain any hints at all that also Sirhan Sirhan was brainwashed by the Israelis (around the same time as Fatkhi)? Is Sirhan mentioned at all?

  41. @renfro

    It’s highly tempting since that’s one of the key methods the goons themselves have always relied on, (they’ve even been known to assassinate their own), and it would be no doubt be highly effective at providing at least temporary relief from the evil, but I can see tons of problems with such an approach.

    You are correct that it would be morally preferable and I’d add that it would be morally justifiable and satisfying as well but we goyim, as bloodthirsty as some of us are, simply are not up to the task; not because we’re so moral ourselves, but few of us are as obsessed or as organized as the rabid ones.

    Israel is a rarity among nations: Rather than confine its assassins to the shadows, it promotes them to prime minister. Bergman’s history records extra-judicial, face-to-face murders by Menachem Begin, Yitzak Shamir, Ariel Sharon, and Ehud Barak, all of whom rose to head the Israeli government

    (shows) the corrupting effect of relying on the black to the exclusion of diplomacy and compromise. Why negotiate with your enemies when it’s so easy to kill them?

    Bergman writes, “Since World War II, Israel has assassinated more people than any other country in the Western world.” The figures he cites — 1,000 killed before the Palestinian Second Intifada, 168 successful “liquidations” during that intifada, and 800 “targeted killings” since then — do not approach the record of the United States. In Vietnam alone, America’s Operation Speedy Express and Phoenix Program in Vietnam took the lives of more than 30,000 Viet Cong supporters. U.S.-led death squads in Latin America killed uncounted thousands.

    At this time, the U.S., Israel, Russia, North Korea, and many other members of the community of nations continue to murder their opponents without having to account for it.

  73. what rubicon is the author talking about from which Israel declined into utter depravity?

    that makes little sense historically! the Israelis were Khazars and we know who they were. they have not changed in a thousand years. there was no change and decline. that’s an inaccurate assessment of the Khazar people

    that is one reason I claimed some time back that the human goose is cooked because the Khazars are the Khazars and are incapable of change.

    the Khazars have also worked themselves into global economic domination based on the exploitation of the human species, a position from which they are the enemies of human truth. they have created and told lies period to facilitate the Khazar social control they have achieved and cannot allow truth to emerge to usurp such social control but to survive

    but humanity needs its truth and its continual development in order to survive in nature. Khazars are therefore 4-square in the path of human survival in nature due to its achieved current social domination. therefore Khazar social control must be overthrow globally, its economic system destroyed and replace by one that facilitates general human progress and survival.

    but at such a point which humanity must achieve it is going to survive indefinitely in nature the major question comes into play about Khazar/Jewish reality and the nature of the people themselves and the crimes they have committed against humanity for a thousand years, on-going as we speak.

    the question of whether or not Khazars can evolve, change, become humane in line with nature and the organizational social requirement essential for human survival is really secondary to existential Khazaria, its physical power and capacity to destroy humanity and the planet and the crimes Khazaria is collectively responsible for..can humanity walk away from those crimes forget about then, leaving the Khazars to go on free from paying for their crimes!?

    is that possible, practical…how will the Khazars go on living then, will they stop trying to take over humanity and bend humanity to their will..and does that not involve the reduction of humanity to a stage of imbecility that permits indefinite Khazarian control until the comes come home?

    that’s the equation, the human choice. Khazaria will not change and Khazars must pay for their crimes against humanity or it makes no sense going on as is obvious:





    but therein lies the death of humanity for the Khazars will never submit to the rest of humanity for examination and judgment. it maybe that they cannot afford to for their crimes have been so large, so comprehensive their penalties equally would be such as they may not be able to pay. under no circumstanced will they be able to survive with their Jewish Chosen ideology. that would be verified as illogical insane and must be jettisoned

    Humanity to save itself must bell the Khazar/Jew. the real war to end all wars is that between the Jew and the rest of Humanity. by now we are all aware of this fact, must be so. it is simple, clear, unavoidable. and we are all dead even if we leave the Khazars to do as they please for they do not have the biological legs to go on in nature indefinitely..only Black people so far is best equipped for that..and those who share the melanin positives of nature, or gain or re-gain melanin as we go along.

    to control the human species indefinitely, the Khazars already eschew melanin and must reorganize human biology to facilitate their control..Brave New World. all such efforts are sure to shorten the human prognosis of life on planet earth. a greatly reduced ordinary population with all its saving diversity of mind, body, cultures, engineered into idiocy, sporting only a Khazar sentient dominant population..sentient in that only they would retain an un-engineered mentality…I assume-if they do not turn on a disaster waiting to take place, an accident away from extinction.

    then again the accident would already have taken place for sentient Khazar/Jewry is a collective insanity..pure naked madness that is bound to consume itself in short order..or fed as they are beginning to feed the world on GMO and the life morphs into some kind of degraded life form that was once human-like

    I mean the negative possibilities of total Khazar control and domination of planet earth are endlessly negative..all negative that is bound to result in the end of humanity in one or more of many many ways.

    the Human species is dead! long live the human species!

    On Israel trip, taxpayer dollars used for hotel
    $30K spent for Enterprise Florida, records show

    By Ana Ceballos News Service of Florida


    TALLAHASSEE — When Florida Cabinet members went to Israel in late May, some state employees who traveled at taxpayer expense stayed in a more than $425-a-night luxury hotel in Jerusalem, where a Cabinet meeting was held.
    But more than a month after the trade mission ended, the full cost of the trip, proposed by Gov. Ron DeSantis, is not clear.
    The governor’s office has not released expense records from the weeklong trip. And Enterprise Florida, an economic-development agency that receives state and private money and helped plan the trip, said on its website that “total mission expenses are compiled approximately 45-60 days” after the trip ends, suggesting it could still be about a month before a total tally will be made public.
    But records obtained by the News Service of Florida detailing travel expenses of Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried and Cabinet staff members show taxpayers footed the bill for nearly $30,000 in hotel rooms, airfare, “registration” fees for Enterprise Florida, baggage fees and per-diem costs, which can include meals.
    That total covered expenses for Fried, three of her staff members, Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis’ chief of staff and Attorney General Ashley Moody’s general counsel.
    Records show Fried and the five staff members spent $15,663 for hotel rooms, which included nights at the David Citadel Hotel, a luxury five-star hotel in Jerusalem that charges $425 a night with the promise of a “majestic Jerusalem experience facing the Old City wall.”
    The records show, in part, that two of Fried’s employees each stayed at the David Citadel for two nights, totaling $1,700. Moody’s general counsel also stayed there for two nights for a total of $850. A report for Patronis’ chief of staff, Ryan West, did not provide detailed information about hotel stays, but his lodging expenses for the trip totaled $2,400.
    “If Florida taxpayers are on the hook for a $500-a-night hotel for state employees, I would say that is excessive. It starts to sound more like a junket than a real trade mission,” said Ben Wilcox, director of Integrity Florida, a nonprofit group that does research on ethics-related issues.
    Kathleen Keenan, a spokeswoman for Enterprise Florida, said the hotel was picked after taking security concerns and room capacity into consideration. She said more than 90 hotel rooms needed to be reserved for the delegation.
    Along with state leaders, the delegation included top-tier lobbyists, business officials such as the president and CEO of Florida Power & Light, the state’s largest utility company, and 24 people representing Florida universities.
    The U.S. Embassy offered suggestions for other hotels, Keenan said, but the David Citadel was the “only hotel with the capacity to reserve a room block large enough for the delegation.” She also said the DeSantis-led mission occurred during Israel’s peak tourism season, suggesting the trip’s timeline made it harder to find secure hotels that could have been cheaper.
    It remains unclear exactly how many people had their travel expenses covered by Enterprise Florida, whose board is chaired by DeSantis and includes the Cabinet members, numerous business leaders and state officials.
    What is known, however, is that Fried was the lone Cabinet officer who did not have all of her travel expenses covered by the public-private agency. Patronis and Moody traveled on the dime of Enterprise Florida. The agency did not answer why that was the case.
    “Enterprise Florida did cover several expenses for Commissioner Fried’s participation, including her in-country transportation, security and meals,” said Franco Ripple, a spokesman for Fried. “We have no way of knowing what expenses Enterprise Florida chose to cover for other Cabinet officials.”
    In total, Fried’s office billed taxpayers for $20,714 in travel costs. That included $4,246 in hotel rooms and airfare for Fried, whose stay at the David Citadel was covered by Enterprise Florida, and $16,167 for the combined expenses of three of her staffers.
    The costs, which also included some additional, relatively minor expenses, were approved by agency supervisors with the understanding that the contingent would be “carrying out their core critical mission on behalf of the (Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services).”
    While in Israel, Fried’s office at times parted ways from the governor’s delegation to learn about the country’s agriculture.

    Any honest accounts (oral histories) by Germans will show that many Jews were identifiable by their looks alone. Including some of those who managed to survive for some time living more or less openly in German cities or even to survive the war. Obviously the Jews who “looked Jewish” were at far greater rusrisk for being spotted than those who did not. Quite apart from the Ostjuden. Of course, many who were defined as Jews by the Third Reich in fact were the products of mixed marriages.

    The problem is that Hulsey apparently never finished the study. Unfortunately the article you linked to is almost two years old, and everything seems to have gone strangely quiet since then.

    It would be great if they would just publish the dam paper already. Just imagine if a peer-reviewed paper was published that would provide an irrefutable scientific “smoking gun,” proving beyond a doubt that WTC7 was the victim of a controlled demolition.

    Somebody like Tulsi Gabbard could then make it a campaign issue and beat the evil orange clown over the head with it.

    When, if ever, a system becomes “capitalist” in any meaningful sense is something I don’t understand. Are traders who own merchandise but not the means of production actually capitalists? I don’t even know what people mean when they say a system is “capitalist”, compared to when it isn’t. IMHO, the term’s meaning is more polemical than literal, but definitely ill-defined.

    What this book does more importantly reveal is a multi-faceted unmasking of Israel’s steady descent from the moral to the immoral tactics of war;

    It is not a descent from the moral; the whole Zionist project was immoral from the start, from theft to thuggery. Israel is the personification of evil, first and foremost. And under its tutelage USA becomes Nosey USA, infected with the same immoral code – hence the “spats” from drone assassinations and the like.

    And to make it clear, the book is a glorification of evil and a message to the world that Zionist Israel can do anything with impunity relying on its status as being above laws and morality.

    Besides it is not “tactics of war” either. This is calculated murder on large scale because their reach is global and anyone who opposes Zionism could be in danger, even the “Anonymous” commenter here.

    With such record of wickedness a deserved retribution is on the cards when it comes. Stalin made a start… maybe why he was bumped off.

    Undoubtly classical Capitalism is evolving into another form of economic structure. Fascism is such a system and its characteristics are identical to your Economic Zionism; hence Zionist Fascism. It is inherent to Capitalism that competition leads to the concentration of capital in fewer hands (therefore higher inequality) and eventual monopolies get in bed with the state, Fascism.

    The only difference I can see is the reach of Economic Zionism (global) – since Fascism tends to be, typically, parochial – but that reflects the changing nature of Capitalism to its imperialist mode too.

    In innocent youth I remember an attractive Anglo-French Jewish wife of an American consul of exotic but non-Jewish ancestry saying she could instantly recognise a Jew.

[Recent error: I didn’t pick Ethiopia]. So…. I can easily see the small signs of their very substantial Jewish ancestry in much loved close relations who are tall, blue-eyed blonds. I bet “Aryan” Berliners could have picked them, but then, most of them probably weren’t the primitives who performed at Kristallnacht.

    I think the basic point about capitalism is that it is a system for accumulating and then investing—wait for it!— capital!
    Accumulation of capital takes place via exploitation of value produced by others, e.g., labor (just one source of capital; the environment is another), to produce profits.
    Economic expansion proceeds via the investment of the accumulated capital.

    Of course, the way it works depends on the sociopolitical conditions prevailing. But I think the sociopolitical and ideological clouds surrounding the term are not core to what capitalism is.

    Here is Google’s answer to the question “What is capitalism?”, which personally I think is already an ideological def, not a technical one:

    “an economic and political system in which a country’s trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit, rather than by the state.”

    Here is Google’s answer to the question “What is state capitalism?”

    “a political system in which the state has control of production and the use of capital.”

    Much better, Google!! Just stick to the facts . . .

    Google’s answer to the question “What is capital?”:
    “wealth in the form of money or other assets owned by a person or organization or available or contributed for a particular purpose such as starting a company or investing.”

    Hmmm. Here is the answer to the question “How did Marx define capital?”

    “The two factors involved in the labour process are the means of production – materials, fuel, land and so on,– and the labour power of the workers. The first component Marx calls “constant capital” and the wages used to pay for the workers’ labour power, “variable capital”.

    Maybe that gives you a few nuts to chew on.

    “Undoubtly (undoubtedly) classical Capitalism is evolving into another form of economic structure.”

    Right, although I see it slightly differently….. please allow me to explain.

    May I say that the “structure” is still very much the same ….what has changed is the level of “Fraud” which have been “injected” into the structure, and is fast consuming nearly all the wealth the structure was designed to produce.

    Consider an example :

    Your neighbor comes up to you and says the guy living five houses down is planning to kill you, your whole family and take your money. He says “don’t worry, if you give me 20 k, I will keep you safe and kill him for you “. So. you give him the 20 k and he goes and shoots the guy in the face…..You then find out…. six months later, the guy who lived five houses down was never planning to kill you at all…….. It was all a con,….only he is dead now, and you are out 20 k.

    Although one can understand this as a classic “capitalist” transaction, its entirety is based on “fraud”.

    It is the “fraud” and the “defrauder” who is the corrosive link in the equation , not you.

    Now try this:

    Substitute your neighbor for your “government leaders (under neocon tutelage)”.

    The man living five houses down as “Saddam Hussein”

    And the amount of money you have been actually asked to cough up is “six trillion dollars” not 20 k.

    And you have the entire “Iraq catastrophe” in a nutshell.

    What has descended upon us is a “capitalist system” that has been “usurped” by individuals who believe it is OKAY to defraud us out of all our money to go kill people who were never going to attack us.

    The solution is not to replace the “capitalist structure” with a “socialist one”….The solution is for us to demand Accountability for the “defrauding” , the “murders ” and their “cost”.

    This corrects the “wrongs” within the system which are plaguing it.

    It is the ongoing criminal fraud within our capitalist structure which is sabotaging its capacity to function and remain solvent.

    In the case of the neighbor five houses down, the correct solution is throwing the “lying murderer” in jail….. and taking back your 20 k !

    The wrong solution is saying “we need Socialism now”, because this guy ripped you off’ and killed someone.

    “Accountability for War Fraud ” is what really needs to happen…. Without it, nothing much is going to change.

    I get your drift and agree with you. But I don’t agree that it is self-correcting by structural elements. The footings (Capitalism) are inherently faulty from a social-economic viewpoint because the logic (raison d’etre) is for individual/corporate profit, not commonwealth (social wellbeing). What Capitalism is doing, has done and will always do is the same thing: profits for the capitalist class. Among them there will aways be competition, as sharks do, hence the tendency for monopolistic formation and concentration into financial Capitalism, the current phase.

    Classical Capitalism (level playing-field) is impossible because the putative referee (the state) is not an impartial by-stander. It is the defender of the status-quo, the existing economic order. Its concern is not the commonwealth, but protecting the interests of the capitalist class. Moreover, the logical tendency is that the wealthiest capitalists wield the greatest amount of power within the state apparatus, therefore they will use that power to further their private interests. Eventually, the aggregation of corporate and state power leads to Fascism, the current state.

    Seen from a Capitalist viewpoint what is happening makes good sense, it is no more than applying its correct tenets to maximize profits. It is not the case that some bad apples get into the basket; the basket itself (the system) produces the bad apples – its essence.

    The essence of Capitalism is private ownership of the means of production (capital) with a view to generate profit (some would say: capital+labour, but labour, being a commodity, like raw materials, is bought/owned by capital). Strictly, trade is not production (and it existed in most pre-capitalist societies) but when used as a commodity, it acquires the same characteristics as raw materials (as if the trader added some quality to the product) and he used paid labour in the business.

    A sole trader would not be a capitalist and that is why it is a permissible activity in the few socialist countries; neither would be anyone selling a product made by himself/family. As a general rule, small businesses and self-employment would not be classified as capitalist. Mind you there are no fixed rules in how countries apply socialist principles; they apply them pragmatically according to local conditions.

    I never said it was “self-correcting”.

    In a healthy, free market republic there should be accountability for “war fraud”, “terror fraud”, and “banking fraud”.

    Right ?

    The problem with our post 9-11 era is there has been absolutely “zero” accountability for any of these crimes.

    One could go so far as to say the “exact reverse” is true.

    Fraud…is actually “rewarded”.

    Fraud has become the quintessential tool, used by our elites, to “drive” US policy.

    It is fraud, not “capitalism”, which has become the grease in the hydraulics of the engine of state.

    It is the easy, uncontested application of “fraud” which has transformed the United States, from a once vibrant, solvent, free Republic into a 22 trillion dollar national debt, uber-militarized, quasi fascist , fiasco.

    In my book, it’s a total disaster.

    I actually believe everyone thinks its a total disaster, including a majority of elites, they just have no clue what to do.

    What I see them doing now ,is attempting to create a new fraudulent paradigm to cover over the sins of their previous fraudulent paradigm , which attempted to whitewash the catastrophe of their fraudulent paradigm , before that.

    It is like “The Cat in the Hat”…who keeps making a bigger smudge erasing the previous smudge ..and so on..and so forth.

    Agree. The US has abandoned any pretense on law & order and become a Zionized Gangster State:

    The forty-fourth president comes across as a successful front man for corporate rule…

    Obama was the “drone king” whose regime bombed 7 Muslim countries, overthrew the democratic government in Hondurus, overthrew and murdered Gaddafi, tried to do the same thing to Assad in Syria, overthrew the democratic government in Ukraine and demonized Russia and the Russian president, tried to undermine and overthrow the democratically elected Latin American presidents Morales, Chavez, and Ortega, constantly lied through his teeth, and met with the approval of the military/security complex and global capitalists. …

    Obama was the perfect front man for a cruel empire. Being partly black, he could be presented as humanitarian and considerate of the dark-skinned peoples… Obama knew who he was serving and suffered no self-deception.

    I find Google’s emphasis on “control” interesting, but that aspect, as well as the requirement that the sole motivation is “for profit”, is too restrictive: I don’t think it applies to any realizable system. But the presence of labour in Marx’s definition is interesting and unusual by today’s standards: it suggests that entrepreneurs who are doing their own work are not really capitalists, thus excommunicating the iconic child selling lemonade on the street corner from the capitalist fraternity. Since Marx more or less invented “capitalism” as a concept, he oughta know.

    Before stirring the pot further, I’ll throw Merriam-Webster’s definition in, too:

    “an economic system characterized by private or corporate ownership of capital goods, by investments that are determined by private decision, and by prices, production, and the distribution of goods that are determined mainly by competition in a free market”

    The word “characterized” rather than “controlled” is an improvement, as is keeping the motive behind “private decision” open. The looser word “characterized” tolerates the presence of non-competitive industries like public utilities and government programs, which are near-universal instutions in contemporary societies, capitalist or not.

    I also like the use of “free market competition” in the term, because this reflects the situation, that as corporations become increasingly monopolistic, they become increasingly unaccountable, reaching a stage where it doesn’t matter whether its bureaucracy is private or governmental. (Perhaps it’s significant that Google’s definition avoided this point.)

    Having picked these nits, I’ll nail my heretical thesis behind these comments on the church door: free-market capitalism is a consequence of innovation and prosperity, not a cause.

    Of course it’s to the advantage of financiers and capitalists to apotheosize the role of finance, which in effect monetizes the human spirit. But IMHO, the truth of the matter is that western innovation and prosperity is a consequence of giving the human creative spirit free reign. That is, free thought and expression, of all sorts, ought to take primacy over free markets.

    Merchant traders provide a counterexample. Trading is a sensibly capitalist activity, yet its only associated invention is banking. This first example of financial abstraction has now evolved to truly riduculous heights, the derivatives industry being what it is. Nor did trade ever especially promote freedom: the slavery industry, which preyed on Gauls, Slavs, Africans (and even Britains during the Norse raids), enriched Arabs, Turks, Teutons, Swedes, and later the major European states, and made bankers in Venice, Genoa, Lisbon, London and the Americas, wealthy.

    The rise of the guilds and the Italian Renaissance, the development of classical music, the discoveries of science and inventions of engineering, all appeared when creators had enough surplus time, whether by their own wealth or aristocratic support, to pursue activities just for the hell of it. What incentivized Leonardo draw those inventions? Or Leibnitz & Newton, and the all other mathematicians, to obssess so over abstruse, seemingly useless questions? The support given to classical composers went more toward liberation of their spirit than incentive. Would anyone seriously argue that Bach’s prolific drive was primarily incentivized by financial reward (…though it’s true he had many mouths to feed!) …or that Einstein’s discoveries were a result of wealth pursuit? These people represent Thorstein Veblen’s leisure class on creative steroids, more than financial titans.

    The modern version of this sort of thing is the open-source software movement. The media pays homage to billionaire tech giants, but what underlay their development was the creative spiriit that continues to give such vibrancy to the free software movement, by people who show dangerous anarchistic preferences toward transparency and collective enterprise. This is an entirely different drive than the profit motive, though as with every human development, there are always those motivated by greed, the actual capitalists, prepared to monetize and exploit any effort for financial return:

    (That’s not always a bad thing, but it can be inhibiting, and it should be kept in its place.)
    All this is a very long-winded path to 3 main points, which were hidden behind my original comments:
    1. It is the spirit of free thought and expression that has allowed humans to make their highest achievements and created greatest social prosperity. (It’s therefore alarming that attack on free intellectual expression has crescendo’d to todays level, following WW II.)
    2. While greed and even fame are prime social motivators, they are secondary in the usually socially eccentric

    creative process, despite financial propaganda to the contrary.
    3. Question to self: Exactly why am I spending time writing this?

  125. cassandra says:

    I generally agree with your comments on single traders, though it bears reexamination when trading develops into larger enterprises, like for instance the East India Company which practically became a state unto itself. In my lengthy reply 127 to Skeptical (parts of which also apply here), I explain why I agree with you that small business people, like lemonade vendors, who rely mostly on their own labor, ought not to be included in the club of capitalists.

    Labels like capitalist/socialist tend to annoy me, because they tend to inject (usually ill-defined) doctrinal considerations into what should be clear-eyed decision making. Better to keep our eye on the ball by concentrating on the real-world consequences of what we’re planning to implement, rather than arguing over whether proposed plans do or do not conform to some particular ideology.

    Putin recently said something interesting, to the effect that our interactions should concern each others’ interests rather than each others’ morality (aka, ideology). I find that not only a concise definition of separation of church and state, but sound guidance for political and economic relations.

    “If someone comes to kill you, rise up and kill him first!”

    – The Babylonian Talmud.”

    This makes perfect sense to me and anyone else with an ounce of self-preservation skills within them. Any groups of humanity, over the millennia, who have not thought along these lines have gone extinct. All groups – from the USA to small tribes in Papua New Guinea – think, and act, like this and to criticise Israel, alone, for doing the same as everyone else shows an agenda of double standards on your part.

    After being attacked several times by neighbouring Muslim countries whose declared intent has always been to “wipe Israel off the face of the earth” (to finish Hitler’s unfinished business) and with these Muslim countries having populations that outnumber Israel’s Jewish population in numbers far greater than 50 to 1, Israel never needs to justify to anyone, especially to people like you, the steps it takes to ensure its survival in the worst neighbourhood on the planet, a place where almost everyone around them wants them dead. That Israel, living in a the Muslim world, has the mantra, “Rise up and kill them first!” makes a lot of sense when there are millions of people and, especially, governments (Iran comes to mind) who have long been promising to cut Israel’s collective throat the moment that they get the chance.

    “Can anyone even imagine what would happen if “David Duke” wrote a book entitle “Rise and Kill First” ?

    Or…if not David Duke….how about Mahmoud Abbas…or Louis Farrakhan ?”

    Comparing David Duke and Louis Farrakhan to Israel is ludicrous. Duke and Farrakhan have not spent their whole lives being personally surrounded by people who have sworn to kill them and have tried many times to kill them (regardless of the false claims by deranged Farrakhan that all white American cops are out shooting blacks for sport).

    As for Mahmoud Abbas: his rewarding punk “Palestinian” murderers with cash and praise every time one of them sneaks into a Jew’s home and knifes a 12-year-old girl to death who was sleeping in her bed, or when a punk hacks an 80-year-old Jewish woman to death as she was waiting at a bus stop, or blows himself up on a Jew-packed bus in Tel Aviv, etc.,etc., etc., is far beyond writing a book entitled “Rise and Kill first.”

    The EU, UN, and USA have continued to give Abbas millions of dollars in aid that he has transferred to “Palestinian” murderers as reward money for their coldblooded slaughtering of Jews and you’re wondering what tremendous outcry would happen if Abbas wrote a book entitled “Rise and Kill first”?

    — Interesting. Your apologia of Jewish Lebensraum, i. e., of the zionist murderers and squatters, is complete. Why you are not happy with Adolf is not clear; according to your proclamations, Hitler should be an ideological bosom-buddy of the Knesset’s supremacists and fanatical theologians.

    Guess, you are also an ardent proponent of holohoax reparations. This is despite of the ongoing land grab and mass slaughter (the veritable wars of aggression according to Nuremberg Protocols) waged in the name of Eretz Israel in the Middle East; millions died, millions became homeless and stateless.

    By the way, the Jewish State was caught on arming Ukrainian neo-Nazi. Why don’t you direct your attention towards the real deniers of the WWII atrocities — the Israelis and Canadian banderites?

    And please, don’t even try to extract any sympathy for your supposed plight in the “the worst neighborhood on the planet” when it is a common knowledge that the US Congress is Israel-occupied territory, that the UK government is heavily zionized, and that the whole western civilization has been suffering from the Jewish assault on the freedom of speech and freedom of information.

    It would be really great if your take your fake intellectuals like the aging (yet still flirtatious) Bernard-Henri Lévy — along with Dershowitz, Epstein, Ledeen, Wolfowitz, Adelsons and the likes — to the Jewish State, for good, away from the western civilization.
