There have been few surprises coming out of the violence that has erupted in Palestine and Israel. Israel, firmly in control of much of the media in the U.S. and Western Europe has chosen to depict it in simple terms: the Palestinian “terrorist” group Hamas has attacked the Jewish state which has taken proportionate steps to defend itself. This simplistic rendition of a much more complicated series of interactions has been picked up by many of the talking heads that pass for political commentary in the United States as well as by the completely corrupted Washington politicians.

Comments expressing any sympathy for the decades long plight of the Palestinians have been as scarce as the proverbial hens’ teeth, though such sentiment is growing even in Congress as Israeli killing of civilians increases. In fact, initially I could only find five statements coming from Democrats that in any serious way regretted the suffering being inflicted on Arab civilians in Gaza, in Jerusalem and on the West Bank. One consisted of remarks by Senator Elizabeth Warren regarding the series of thefts of Palestinian homes that sparked the recent violence. She tweeted “The forced removal of long-time Palestinian residents in Sheikh Jarrah is abhorrent and unacceptable. The Administration should make clear to the Israeli government that these evictions are illegal and must stop immediately.” Senator Bernie Sanders also made the case for Palestinian suffering in a hard-hitting New York Times op-ed entitled “The U.S. Must Stop Being an Apologist for Netanyahu.” He describes the Israeli Prime Minister as having “cultivated an increasingly intolerant and authoritarian type of racist nationalism.”

There also was Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’s brief rebuke to New York City mayoral candidate Andrew Yang, who had tweeted “I’m standing with the people of Israel who are coming under bombardment attacks, and condemn the Hamas terrorists. The people of NYC will always stand with our brothers and sisters in Israel who face down terrorism and persevere.” AOC responded “Utterly shameful for Yang to try to show up to an Eid [Ramadan] event after sending out a chest-thumping statement of support for a strike killing 9 children.”

A much stronger comment came from Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, who is of Somalian descent, who decried her own party’s unwillingness to confront the reality of the issue. She tweeted “No mention of Sheikh Jarra. No mention of the al-Aqsa raid. No mention of the 13 innocent children killed in air strikes. No mention of the ongoing occupation of millions in an open-air prison. You aren’t prioritizing human rights. You’re siding with an oppressive occupation.” Omar was subsequently accused by no less than ex-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo of being “anti-Semitic.”

And Palestinian descendant Rashida Tlaib, in a speech delivered before Congress, included “To read the statements from President Biden and Secretary Blinken, General Austin and leaders of both parties, you’d hardly know Palestinians existed at all. There has been no recognition of the attack on Palestinian families being ripped from their homes in East Jerusalem right now or home demolitions; no mention of children being detained or murdered; no recognition of a sustained campaign of harassment and terror by Israeli police against worshipers kneeling down and praying and celebrating their holiest days in one of their holiest places — no mention of Al-Aqsa, being surrounded by violence, tear gas, smoke, while people pray.”

None of the comments had any real impact on the White House and AOC’s was particularly maladroit as Yang is running for mayor in a city with a sizable Jewish population that he was pandering to, but he has nothing whatsoever to do with U.S. foreign policy. AOC should have aimed her criticism at her own party’s leadership, which she, of course, chose not to do.

Most commentary from America’s so-called leaders was more predictably bellicose. Jen Psaki, the White House press spokesman cited the view of President “I am a Zionist” Joe Biden, reporting that “The president’s support for Israel’s security, for its legitimate right to defend itself and its people, is fundamental and will never waiver. We condemn ongoing rocket attacks by Hamas and other terrorist groups against Jerusalem.” This produced an absurd response from even more passionately Zionist ex-President Donald Trump, who characteristically was both aggressive and overflowing with ignorance. He tweeted “When I was in office we were known as the Peace Presidency, because Israel’s adversaries knew that the United States stood strongly with Israel and there would be swift retribution if Israel was attacked. Under Biden, the world is getting more violent and more unstable because Biden’s weakness and lack of support for Israel is leading to new attacks on our allies. America must always stand with Israel and make clear that the Palestinians must end the violence, terror, and rocket attacks, and make clear that the U.S. will always strongly support Israel’s right to defend itself.”

But it was hard to beat the one liner by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who has claimed the titled of “Israel’s governor” while also having his state issue license plates bearing the slogan “Florida Stands By Israel.” How about “Florida Stands By Americans” Ron? De Santis said “Hamas is a terrorist organization and Israel has the right to defend itself against terrorist attacks.” Indeed, the pithy line that “Israel has a right to defend itself” has been picked up far and wide in the U.S. Whether an unarmed Palestine has the same right apparently is not a matter of concern for many Americans.

Also coming out of Florida is a similar message from Democratic Congressman Ted Deutch who is promoting the argument “Please don’t be fooled by false choices: Israel or Hamas. If I am asked to choose between a terrorist organization and our democratic ally, I will stand with Israel.” Ted is himself Jewish and represents a largely Jewish constituency.

And Ted is of course interpreting the situation to suit his own preferences. Also, like many Democratic politicians, he is listening to the top political donors, a clear majority of whom for the Democrats are reportedly Jewish. Haim Saban, an Israeli-American Hollywood producer and major donor, says “I’m a Democrat, and unfortunately there is an extreme left wing of the Democratic Party that could use some education on what’s in our American interest. On Israel there should be no argument. It’s the only democracy in the region and our staunchest ally in the region.”

Saban is, of course, reiterating a comfortable argument about supporting Israel. It is also false as Israel is neither an ally nor a democracy and its actions are completely contrary to actual U.S. interests. Objectively speaking, Palestine has been the victim of the Jewish state and not vice versa and Israel could be charged with genocide, mass murder or ethnic cleansing, whatever or however one chooses to describe it. One could go on for pages describing the human rights abuses and war crimes that the indigenous Muslim and Christian Arab inhabitants have had to endure at the hands of the Jewish Israelis over the past seventy plus years.

Israel has even declared itself legally a Jewish state with inferior rights for the 20% of the population that technically are Israeli citizens but consisting nearly all of Palestinian Christians and Muslims. Those Palestinians who are not citizens are under Israeli imposed martial law on the West Bank and have no rights whatsoever, including the right to life. Israeli soldiers who shoot to kill unarmed Arab civilians, including children, are almost never punished and some of them are actually celebrated as heroes.

Noam Chomsky describes the situation from the Arab point of view: “You take my water, burn my olive trees, destroy my house, take my job, steal my land, imprison my father, kill my mother, bombard my country, starve us all, humiliate us all, but I am to blame: I shot a rocket back.” It is now generally conceded that Israel is an apartheid state, with the Arabs remaining in historic Palestine living in what is virtually an open-air prison. In return the unarmed Palestinians have occasionally struck back in so far as they could, leading to an Israeli response consisting of overwhelming military force using “industrial” state of the art weapons versus home-made rockets to produce the disproportionate slaughter such as is occurring right now.

What is particularly disturbing about the U.S. government response to what is taking place in Gaza is the lack of any actual American interest that is served by allowing Israelis to kill Palestinians. Quite the contrary, as Washington will be rightly blamed by nearly everyone for enabling Israeli behavior. Equally disturbing is the tissue of lies and deliberate misstatements used to obscure the reality and justify the positions that are being taken. Is there any wonder why so many Americans no longer feel that they can either trust or believe what is coming out of the mouths of Washington politicians and its associated mainstream media?

    It’s the revenge of mythology. For centuries, people who liked stories were fed mythologies. Then in the Vth century BCE, Herodotus and Thucydides invented history, if with different visions of it. Of course, there was a lot to be desired since history has always been written by the victors, which led Napoleon to declare that it was a pack of lies on which we all agree but there was an ideal of objectivity behind the concept. Now the Western world is done with that pretense and has definitely opted back for mythology with solid policies to control the narrative (Assange, Snowden, corporate media fake news and propaganda, social media censorship, now the bombing of the AP and Al Jazeera building in Gaza…) Soon the TV and newspapers will tell us that we have to go to war because a girl has been kidnapped by Putin or Xi that happens to be the daughter of a goddess who counts on us to set her free. Your pantheon needs you! kinda stuff. Can’t stop progress…

    There are at least 100 Members of Congress who know the real story and might take action – or at least make public statements – if they had enough support to not be cancelled by the Zionists. But as it is now, they get 100 calls/letters from the Israel Lobby for every one critical of Israel.

    Yesterday, AOC introduced a Resolution to stop the arms sale to Israel. Original co-sponsors are Mark Pocan, Rashida Tlaib, Cori Bush, Betty McCollum, Ayanna Pressley, Ilhan Omar, Pramila Jayapal and Andre Carson. They deserve thanks!


    Congress should be deluged TODAY with calls demanding that they stop the sale of weapons to Israel.

  3. Israel may be a democracy, but it is certainly no liberal democracy; it is a Jewish democracy, which is a very different animal.

  4. Who is the terrorist, who is the victim? Well, it’s like Cowboys and Indians.
    Indeed, BLM too is a variation of Cowboys and Indians.

    Long ago, Indians killed whites, but whites also killed Indians. Indeed, whites killed many more Indians, but did whites say ALL LIVES MATTER? No, they operated on the basis of White Lives Matter. So, when Indians killed whites, it was outrageous! But when whites killed Indians, oh well… bunch of subhuman savages.

    BLM is just a variation of that. The ‘cowboys’ are blacks. If whites kill blacks, it’s outrageous!! But when blacks kill whites(and blacks kill many more whites than whites kill blacks), oh well… what does it matter when whites(as the new ‘Indians’) are subhuman ‘racist’ white trash?

    In the Middle East conflict, Jews write the script. The ‘cowboys’ are Jews, and ‘Indians’ are Arabs.

    The more things change, the more they stay the same. For all talk of social justice and equality, we are back to cowboys and indians where some people’s lives matter a helluva more than other lives.

    Israel is a fascist-democracy, and that’s a good thing. The problem is Zionism went from essentially a nationalist creed to an imperialist worldview. In that, it’s following the same trajectory of moral failure of National Socialism, which could have been a great success minus the imperialism.

    The Zionists are burying themselves. Even CNN is speaking.

    A CNN journalist at the mosque compound said dozens of Israeli officers hit journalists with batons and tried to point rifles at them, calling them “liars” when they showed them their press cards.

    The officers moved on to the compound as thousands of worshipers chanted in solidarity with Gaza and with Palestinian residents of the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah, where some Palestinian families are facing eviction.

    …..

    CNN witnessed people, including screaming children, fleeing the scene to the sound of stun grenade blasts. The Palestinian Red Crescent said it treated 20 injuries following clashes between Palestinians and Israeli police at the compound. Two people were taken to hospital, while the rest were treated in the field, the aid group said.

    I like to paraphrase Dr Giraldi and expand his analysis: Israel and its Jewish supporters and financiers are in complete control of much of the global media in the U.S., Western Europe, Australia and Russia led by the anti-Muslims RT. Israel’s message to all media outlets is, any sympathy towards the Palestinians will invite Israel’s terror. Hence, the media have depicted Israel’s terror against the Palestinians in simple terms: the Palestinian “terrorist” group HAMAS has attacked the Jewish state which is “defending itself”. HAMAS is not a terrorist group. It is a resistance movement of indigenous Palestinians. By contrast, Israel is an occupying terrorist entity that has been terrorising and dispossession the Palestinians. Israel, and its terrorist groups have been carrying out a war against the Palestinians for over 100 years, so Israeli self-defence against Palestinians is a logical impossibility (Electronic Intifada, 26 July, 2018). In fact as an occupying power, Israel does not have a legal right to claim self-defence against the people it occupies and terrorises (Truthout, 14 May 2021).

    Furthermore, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez is an opportunist. Yang is harmless. She should have exposed the Biden’s regime complicity in Israel’s terror and directed her “criticism” at Biden himself who supplied Israel with weapons and ammunition. She is part of this racist and violent regime.

    That’s the problem. The only way Israel can survive in any form is as a decent, humane, society existing at peace with its neighbours. Unfortunately, led by a truly exceptionally Evil monster, Bibi, it is careering the other way, to hatred raised to the Heavens, not just of the Palestinians, of Arabs, of Moslems, but of all goyim who do not lick their jack-boots. Even those they thoroughly despise, but find useful. I can clearly see the path to universal destruction down which we are being driven by these Messianic Zionazi monsters.

    May the Lady of All Nations, who once was Mary, be our Advocate.

    Amen.”

    FYI: exactly ten years before communism came to an end in Eastern Europe in 1989, Pope John-Paul II made the following invocation during an outdoor Mass in Warsaw (June 2nd 1979):

    “And I cry—I who am a Son of the land of Poland and who am also Pope John Paul II—I cry from all the depths of this Millennium, I cry on the vigil of Pentecost:

    Let your Spirit descend.
    Let your Spirit descend.
    and renew the face of the earth,
    the face of this land.

    Amen.”

  35. Paradoxically, it is precisely because Jews are so ‘racist’ that that support BLM as a gesture of ‘anti-racism’.

    Control of the narrative and a distortion of reality that goes with it is what this is all about. Average Americans are among the world’s most gullible and ignorant people on the planet. Their “free press” has an unwritten mandate to continue Plato’s allegory of the cave forcing people inside to accept the shadows in front of them as reality. Given the ad nauseam use of the “self-defense” bullshit being peddled by the press, it is surprising that they had not cast one of the post-WWII’s leading mass murderers and war criminals George W. Bush as a victim of Iraqi terrorism. The poor redneck only dispatched over one million Iraqis to their deaths and leaving their country in tatters to this day and is still occupied by their “saviors”.

    The underlying pattern is simplicity itself, and accords with common sense. As the Athenian representative told the Melians in 416 BC, “[Y]ou know as well as we do that right, as the world goes, is only in question between equals in power, while the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must”.

    That has been true throughout history, and holds good today. The strong do what they can, and the weak suffer what they must.

    The USA and Israel count themselves among the strong, and do what they can to enrich themselves and gain power over others.

    Sometimes they are candid about this; more often, rather disgustingly, they wrap themselves in a cloak of false virtue, claiming to act out of altruism and concern for human rights.

    The only forces that can set limits to the arrogant aggression of such states as the USA and Israel are their equals in power – mainly military power. Thus the USA blusters and rants against Russia and China, but knows that it cannot harm them or gain power over them. (Except, perhaps, by devious means such as biological warfare).

    “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has”.

    That remark, incorrectly attributed to Margaret Mead, may be the most wrong-headed claim I have ever read.

    What has mostly changed the human world has been violence or the threat of it. Occasionally fruitful negotiations occur – but only ever between perceived equals in military power.

    The United States, and by default all other nuclear nations, continue marching toward oblivion with the rebuilding of their nuclear arsenals at a price tag of ~ $1.7 trillion over 30 years. Daniel Ellsberg in his book, The Doomsday Machine, states that, “There is no sign that the findings of the latest scientific peer-reviewed studies of climatic consequences of nuclear war over the past decade have penetrated the consciousness of U.S. officials or Russian officials or have influenced in anyway their deployments or arms control negotiations.”

    This reality coupled with the global pandemic, rising international political tensions between the nuclear superpowers and environmental degradation has caused the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists to set their Doomsday Clock at 100 seconds to midnight, the closest it has ever been.
    Just this past December witnessed a significant breach of the National Nuclear Security Agency’s computer systems. This exposed the potential reality of a “War Games” scenario.

    Meanwhile, a surge in fission reactions in an inaccessible chamber within the complex” is alarming scientists that monitor the ruins of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine. Since 2016, neutron emissions from Room 305/2 have been spiking and increased by 40% over the past 5 years. It signals a growing nuclear fission reaction in the room.

    This significant renewal of fission activity is located in Sub-Reactor Room 305/2, which contains large amounts of fissile material from the initial meltdown. The explosion brought down walls of the facility amongst tons of fissile material within the reactor as extreme heat melted reactor wall concrete and steel combined with sand used to control the explosion to form a lava-like intensely radioactive substance that oozed into lower floors, e.g., Room 305/2. That room is so deadly radioactive that it is inaccessible by humans or robots for the past 35 years.

    Only time will tell whether the monster of the deep in Room 305/2 settles down on its own or requires human interaction via the eyes and arms of a robot, which may not survive the intense radioactivity. If it is deemed necessary to intervene, it’ll require robotically drilling into Room 305/2 and spraying the highly radioactive blob with a fluid that contains gadolinium nitrate, which is supposed to soak up excess neutrons and choke the fission reaction.

    For nearly a decade the crippled Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant has been streaming radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean. The bulk of the radioactive water is stored in more than 1,000 water tanks. TEPCO (Tokyo Electric Power Co.) struggles to control it. So, Japan’s government has made an informal decision to dump Fukushima Daiichi’s radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean. Currently, 1.2 million tonnes of radioactive water is stored, but TEPCO is running out of storage space. They should really build more storage tanks.

    Inescapably, the bane of nuclear power, once dangerously out of control, remains dangerously out of control, forever and on it goes, beyond human time. Unfortunately, one nuclear accident is equivalent to untold numbers, likely thousands, of non-nuclear accidents. (Robert Hunziker)

    “We thus drift toward unparalleled catastrophe.” (Albert Einstein)

    The U.S. must take a leadership role by:
    * Actively pursuing a verifiable agreement among nuclear-armed states to eliminate their nuclear arsenals
    * Renouncing the option of using nuclear weapons first
    * Ending the sole, unchecked authority of any U.S. President to launch a nuclear attack
    * Taking U.S. nuclear weapons off hair-trigger alert
    * Cancelling the plan to replace the entire U.S. nuclear arsenal with enhanced weapons
    (Robert F. Dodge, M.D.)

    Sean Hannity Net Worth and Salary: Sean Hannity is an American television host, author, and conservative political commentator who has a net worth of $250 million. He is best known for hosting the talk radio show “The Sean Hannity Show”, as well as his program “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.

    Sean Hannity Salary: Between his radio and TV show gigs alone, Sean Hannity earns $40 million per year. He earns $25 million per year from Fox News. The remaining salary mostly comes from a radio syndication deal with Premiere Networks that was signed in 2019.

    It’s interesting. Increasingly, when I read Giraldi and the other anti-Israel writers here I see the frank attempt to create an alternative-reality, in which facts are carefully selected and ignored, and to create a sort of “mind-ghetto”, a kind of self-hypnosis.

    Even last year Giraldi was more centred in reality.

    In this act of self-hypnosis, thriving and technologicallly ascendant Israel is actually a failed state in the verge of extinction, and the most excruciatingly careful attempt to avoid civilian casualties is actually a brutal slaughter of civilians, while Hamas deliberate shooting of rockets entirely at civilians is a legitimate act of self-defense.

    This kind of thing is not surprising; the weaker side in any conflict always has a much greater incentive to retreat into fantasy to avoid confronting a harsh reality. And yet, the only way to emerge from ones weakness to seriously confront reality.

    The mind-virus of the Arabs/Muslims, has increasingly come to infect and characterize their supporters; the retreat into fantasy, the creation of a mind-ghetto isolated from facts to self-indulgently create a “safe space” where one finds comfort in a dream-world.

    And yet, the weaker side can only emerge into strength by an accounting with reality.

    The accelerating trend of self-hypnosis and retreat into an emotionally self-indulgent “space space” that I am beginning to see among the anti-Israel crowd, is a sign of the end.

    The increasing failure to achieve their objectives in reality, leads directly to increasingly seeking refuge in make-believe.

    The interesting thing is this has characterized the conflict from the beginning: the Arab superimposition of a desired fantasy over an achievable reality, with each failure bringing a retreat into fantasy, and greater maximalism.

    Of course, this does not characterize the entire Arab/Muslim world, more and more of which are making peace with Israel and accommodating themselves to reality, and the extremist fantasists are increasingly shrinking.

    But I think this conflict is a great education to anyone trying to achieve something in the real world; retreating into fantasy has tremendous emotional appeal, and the would-be world changer who succumbs to this is doomed to the dust-bin of history. His best fate is to co-create his desired illusion with like-minded people on marginal websites 🙂

  65. First, let’s note that “terrorist” is a diversionary term. For obvious reasons, guilty parties prefer ambiguity. With only a simple short telephone call, anyone can qualify as a “terrorist”. OTOH to commit murder requires the wanton killing of another human being. Such an action establishes a body count. A rough estimate of the number of victims murdered worldwide by the USGov and its agents since Saturday 23 November 1946 comes to about 25,000,000 [twenty-five million] souls –I would welcome informed discussion of this calculation.

    For a spot glance, let us point out the similar pattern of tactics between the criminal U.S. aggression against Korea [Dean Rusk, Assistant Secretary of State for Far Eastern Affairs in 1950] in 1950 and the equally criminal U.S. destruction of Iraq [Ambassadoress April Glaspie] beginning in 1990 and continuing through the present day. Contrary to WAR*s [WAshington Regime] official propaganda line about 2003, the U.S. has been continuously at war against Iraq for some 31 years now with phases of varying intensity. Because of its combination of population and oil reserves, Iraq was the most important Arab country, which eminence made it a prime target for the Jews, especially Israel.

    Will the combination of the place names of Nuremberg (1945) and Deir Yassin (9 April 1948) help all to realize that ever since its inception the Jew State has been a 100% criminal entity?

    The glare of JL*–911 [*=Jewish Lightning] finally revealed to us that the 1963 Dallas Jack Whack, overseen by the aged Bernard Baruch –the Second King of the Jews, as I have dubbed him– and his XO David Ben Gurion, had been the all-time biggest kosher coup d’etat.

    Boiling it all down, therefore, at the bottom of the kettle we find these bones:

    D 2 I for “Death To Israel” and

    L U Z for “Lock Up Zionists”.

    We the NAGIM [Normal, Alias “Gentile”, IMmensity] can accomplish D 2 I with minimal loss of life and, indeed, achieving this goal is essential to saving life, which depends on establishing that law which serves justice only.

    We have the duty to punish MULL or “MUrder, Looting & Lying”, of which in today’s world Zionism is the most flagrant example.

Side A will accuse the other of battlefield atrocities and Side B will deny this and trot out their own photos. Both sides will line up reporters, frequently using threats, inducement and intimidation, to put forward their spin. On either side we will see photos of schools destroyed, hospitals in ruins, weeping civilians etc.

    In WW2, Adolph was advised that if he used gas the retribution would be terrible. Yet in the Iraq/ Iran conflict Saddam was provided with these weapons and gleefully used them to the cheers of the West. Then in even more horrific acts the US put two atomic bombs on top of the Japs. Then in the USA/ Iraq conflict we heard that Iraq’s forces were murdering babies in the hospital and other such “atrocities” which turned out to be bullshit.

    We in the West know that the MSM are a bunch of skilled liars. Why would be believe anything put out by any news organisation anywhere in the world about anything happening anywhere in the world ??

    Hamas and Israel will use all the can and all they ought not to in order to prevail and to WIN. I don’t believe anything I read in the press and especially the “news” about this fracas I call it all bullshit.

    As I said in a previous comment, Israel and Hamas will be given enough resources to go at it for all eternity with neither side winning the game. No Arab country and no other country in the World wants an influx of either lazy and useless Palestinians refugees or a plague of rapacious Jews.

    To protect the dollar the US should propose the adoption of Bancor for international trade which would allow the US currency to be decoupled from being the international reserve currency. This one act alone would allow the US to regain financial strength and protect it from the termites and parasites in Wall Street that are intent on destroying their host.

    No matter what Jews do, they not only go un-criticized but praised to high heaven. Consider the time when the fatso Chris Christie groveled and apologized at the feet of Sheldon Adelson because he’d used the term ‘occupied territories’. Consider how all the Jewish crimes and abuses are blamed on the ‘left'(or ‘communists’, hilarious when we consider Jewish Power is based on zillionaire capitalism) than on the real culprits. Jews raped Russia in the 1990s, but both parties stand with Jewish hatred against Russia. When Jews say they want something, no one of any authority resists and pushes back. Jews wanted nation-wide legalization of gambling and got it. Jews wanted ‘gay marriage’ and got it. So-called ‘liberals’ are really gulliberals whoh fall for every BS pushed by MSM or JSM, Jewish-Stream-Media. And Texas, the ‘queers and steers’ state, can’t even say NO to tranny surgeries for kids because Jews control the gods and demand it. Jewish Power deplatformed Alex Jones but the fool blames Iran and Chicoms. Jewish Power defamed Trump with ‘Russia Collusion’ nonsense, Ukraine BS(where Biden was the real crook), and deep state machinations. But after being rammed in the ass by the Tribe, Trump’s message to Jews is always CISYD, or Can I Suck Your D***?

    This Uncritical Tribal Theology or UTT had led to unrestrained Jewish Supremacist Power. That is the biggest problem. But there’s more. The reason why CRT is spreading is due to UTT. Jews are funding and promoting it because they know they will never be called out for it due to UTT. It’s like Jews have been protecting Antifa and funding anti-white SPLC forever, but few dare connect the dots and blame Jews. UTT means always praising Jews, even when they kick you.
    Jews were the main theorists behind CRT. Though ostensibly aimed at fighting ‘racism’ and ‘white supremacism’, it’s really a huge bait-and-switch scheme. It’s essentially about Jews using blacks against whites to make whites support Jewish bigotry and supremacism. Jews know their supremacism depends on unconditional white submission and support.
    Jews buy white allegiance with lots of carrots but also rely on the stick, especially with glimmers of white awakening under MAGA. So, Jews use the black issue to fill whites with eternal guilt. But notice Jews do not then demand that whites abandon all forms of race-hatred or racial favoritism. Rather, they direct whites to support Zionism uber Palestinians, Arabs, and Iranians at all cost and by all means. No BDS, suppressed in both ‘blue’ and ‘red’ states due to Jewish supremacist influence. Also, by using CRT and buying off BLM with tons of cash, Jews then whitewash or blackwash all their crimes in the Middle East. “How can we Jews be ‘racist’ in oppressing Palestinians when BLM blesses us Jews?” Jews don’t need to act moral when they can buy ‘morality’ as a commodity.

    So, any ‘conservative’ who opposes CRT but supports UTT is an idiot or lowlife. It’s like saying ‘bad doggy’ to a vicious canine while praising its master who is directing the dog to bark and bite.

    Interesting; “Hamas’ deliberate shooting of rockets entirely at civilians,” caused only ten civilian deaths

    You might have heard of Israels Iron Dome, which shot down 90% of incoming rockets.

    The Iron Dome also gives 10 seconds of warning, which is enough time for most people to reach bomb shelters or at least take some kind of effective cover.

    but Israel’s “excruciatingly careful attempt to avoid civilian” caused nearly three hundred civilian deaths.

    Even Hamas admits that many of these were its own commanders and fighters, and Israel claims at least 160 were.

    Hamas also embeds it’s military targets within the civilian population, which is the only reason there are any civilian casualties at all. The IDF would be happy to meet Hamas in the open field.

    This idea, that the only factor in determining which side targets civilians is the number of civilian deaths, and to ignore every other factor, is obviously stupid, and will not convince an intelligent person. It is propaganda as a brute-force club, without intelligence, and will likely insult and alienate mainstream people of average intelligence. But you do not understand this

    It will however attract people interested in sharing your dream-world. You do not understand how stupid claims like this hurt you more than they help you, and this is why you keep on losing.

    Hamas’ home-made rocket falling erratically over the civilian population causing casualties, while tragic can be excused.

    I don’t understand – are you trying to say that Hamas rocket salvos, often over 200 in an hour, did not specifically target Israeli towns and cities with the intent to kill civilians?

    It sounds like you are trying to paint a picture of Hamas sort of just lobbing rockets on the general direction of Israel, where some totally accidentally happened to hit Israeli towns, and the rockets were so ineffectual that Hamas never even intended anyone to die.

    This is a perfect example of a retreat into fantasy and self-hypnosis.

    You keep on wondering why your propaganda fails to really be effective with the broad mainstream of people, and only attracts people who are similarly interested in retreating into the consolations of fantasy.

    As long as you are not willing to come to terms with reality, you have no chance.

    The anti-Israeli side seems to have chosen the self-indulgence of a fantasy over the harsh coming to terms with reality. This tells me you have chosen the comforts of a fantasy mind-ghetto over achieving anything in the real world.

    And that is why in the real world, the situation gets more and more favourable to Israel.

    Why does nobody other than BLM and Antifa thugs protest outside of the enemy’s gated communities, outside the protection of their “halls of democracy?”

    Perhaps that’s a rhetorical question, but it has an actual answer. When BLM/ antifa terrorists riot “against the establishment,” they are not attacking the enemy. Their actions are officially-sanctioned, and serve to form the core of a hegemonic “news” media narrative. They can loot, burn, assault, kill… and their crimes will be celebrated by the semitic narrative promotion agencies. Should those crimes be a little too visible, then they may be temporarily detained, and even — in highly unusual circumstances — actually charged with crimes. But don’t worry, once a little time has passed, “your” government simply drops all charges against the antifags, and even gives them millions of dollars for their “trouble.” If they run into some sort of “misunderstanding” on how the kritarchy is supposed to work, they always have the (((National Lawyers Guild))) to help them out while so-called “journalists” glorify them — even going so far as to sycophantically slobber over their “fashion choices.”

    When ordinary Americans engage in peaceful protests, their actions of simple trespass are characterized by those same semitic narrative promotion agencies as “insurrectionary, terroristic, horrifically coup-like desecrations of muh sacred temples,” and are punished by indefinite detention without bail, or — for the horrific “crime” of… leaning against a barrier — torture. And summary execution, of course.

    Though I know of one case where an antifag actually got prison time for attacking what he thought was an officially-approved target — an “ebil not-see fascist White supreemist racist” Trump supporter:

    https://nypost.com/2019/10/23/antifa-protester-gets-18-months-for-beating-up-trump-supporter/

    18 months
    for beating up a “fascist?” That doesn’t sound right. And it happened outside an event organized by “far right” hate figure Mike Cernovich, too. What does Mike have to say about that?

    Campbell had been charged with several crimes after he violently attacked a Jewish party-goer

    Whoops. He accidentally assaulted a genuine, officially-certified member of the Tribe of Supreme Victims. Guess it wasn’t about ideology after all, but “Who, Whom.” Unprincipled exception alert — always check for the yarmulke first, Dave…

  97. There is something else going on here. We are dealing with a Terrorist Organization (Israel) that for 80 years has carried out Terrorism to achieve foreign policy. Assassinations, Bombings, Murders, False Flags, Honey Pots, Intimidation, Drone Strikes, Snipers, Poison, Espionage, Intellectual Theft, Human Trafficking, Organ harvesting…

    Israel played a major role in 9/11. We know the CIA and FBI were also involved. We know sitting Presidents, the Pentagon…and many, many other agencies played their part in the cover-up.

    Fast Forward to 2021. We ask ourselves why America always turns a blind eye to the Genocide of the Palestinian People???? Why our Zionist-owned MSM never ever speaks out against it.

    I think it is simple BLACKMAIL. Blackmail using the culpability of our elites in the 9/11 Crime. Imagine being married to a murdering scumbag and taking part in his murders. You are now all in. There is no escape. If you try to leave or even think about taking him to the cops, you also will face justice. Your assets seized. The outraged, pitchforked wielding masses will slaughter your children. You too will face obliteration. They also know, before the masses reach you, Israeli Mossad will pay a visit to your home.

    Imagine if Israel is ever exposed as the orchestrator of 9/11. Imagine how many elites in America will fall with Israel. Imagine the thousand of Zionist Jews that will flee to Israel. Imagine the absolute demoralization of all of America recognizing their sons and daughters died or were horribly crippled fighting entirely FALSE enemies. Their emotions of patriotism preyed upon by the filthy Zionist —to fight their manufactured wars. Imagine the outrage. Imagine the trillions of dollars in war reparations America would have to pay. Imagine the shame of America.

    To increase that leverage, Israel ran elaborate Honey Pots using Jeffery Epstein. Many elites are dirty. Many video/audio tapes exist of them having sex, homosexual sex, and possibly pedophilia acts. Many elites are Atheist or worse, Satanist. They wear thousand dollar suits and a mask of civility but ache for ever-increasing power and money. They view the average citizen with utter contempt, engorge themselves on our tax dollars, and indulge their own hedonist urges. They sell out their country, move their money offshore and set up family trusts to care for their hideous malformed heirs (Hunter Biden)—Generational Wealth courtesy of US Taxpayers.

    BLACKMAIL works. It is tried and true. Why is it Hillary Clinton will never face justice??? My theory is that all of these fucking elites know the truth of 9/11 and it is their “Get out Jail Free Card”. Prosecute me and I will spill the beans. Epstein probably made the fatal mistake of forcing that blackmail. All participants from every side AGREED it was time to silence him. And so he broke his own neck. Nothing…absolutely Nothing will ever come from the prosecution of Mossad agent Ghislaine Maxwell. This is known..and so they slow roll it. Most likely she will be deported to Israel.

    Nope…State crimes carried out in the dark, stay in the dark. The State Apparatus makes damn sure they are never exposed to the light of day. Why is it Investigative files and final reports are SEALED for 50 Years “In the interest of National Security”??? Perhaps it is so that all the dirty criminals that committed those acts can live out their lives. And all the people that wanted answers will die off before the files become available. And so state-sponsored Narratives are upheld….reality manufactured—the population Gas Lighted –by the criminals in charge.

    And ancient Greek slavery was very different from the American slavery. A slave was a member of the family. Read Homer’s Odyssey. When Odysseus eventually gets home the heroes who support him are slaves, the woman who’s the first person to recognize him is a slave washing his feet who was also his childhood nurse. Very different. No comparison. Athens with its election by lot definitely was democracy.

    Well, Israel’s greatest military successes came before the US became heavily involved in the region. In fact, it was only in the 70s, after Israel had proven militarily useful, that the US adopted it as a client state against Soviet influence in the region. In the 67 war, Israel was using mostly French fighter planes.

    While the alliance with the US has been on the whole good for Israel, it has also been very limiting. The US is the prime enforcer of the post-war liberal rules regimes. This has tied Israels hands and made it impossible for Israel to humanely transfer the Palestinian population to local Arab countries, or inflict a decisive defeat on groups like Hamas and Hezbollah, which would involve much greater collateral damage than is currently acceptable.

    The US dictated strategy has been to not let Israel conquer or crush the Palestinians, which would be easy to do, but to limit the use of force and gradually assimilate the Palestinians into the liberal world order. This has led to an unsatisfying stalemate, but is a policy that may be vindicated in the long run.

    Additionally, much anti-Israel sentiment is because Israel is seen as having the backing of the most powerful country in the world. Israel gets caught up in the general opposition to so-called American imperialism and the general resentment of American dominance.

    With America in decline, the optimistic post-war liberal consensus, which prefers converting adversaries to defeating them, will be discredited, and a new era of unsentimental realpolitik will be ushered in. With Europe increasingly contending with a hostile Muslim minority that refuses assimilation and is increasingly violent to their European hosts, it is clear sympathy will lie with Israel.

    Already European nationalists are uniformly friendly to Israel. Austria flew the Israeli flag in a gesture of solidarity in the current round of fighting.

    China increasingly is facing a belligerent Muslim population that it is putting in reeducation camps. The Chinese, too, are eminently pragmatic – Israels technological edge is much more valuable to them than anything in the Muslim world, and China already has excellent relations with China. And the instability and backwardness, the extremism and regime changes, of the Muslim world will lead China to want a regional ally that is stable, much like America did.

    Russia is very friendly with Israel. The Arab world is increasingly turning it’s back on the failed society of the Palestinians and forming alliances with Israel, in a move that sees a turn away from backwardness and towards modernity and prosperity.

    The popular support for Palestinians is superficial and skin-deep. It’s based, once again, on liberalisms sympathy with the weaker party. With the decline of liberalism, or a shift in power arrangements, this popular support would disappear.

    In hindsight, it will be understood that only the American-led world order was keeping the Palestinians alive as an issue. Only liberalism was optimistic enough to stave off the final defeat of the Palestinians in the hope that they would be assimilated to liberalism.

    But these historical episodes, what do they establish?

    They establish that population transfer in the aftermath of conflict:

    1. is not so abnormal, having occured several times in the 20th century,
    2. has involved far greater numbers of displaced persons than those pertaining to I-P,
    3. took place under the auspices of agreements negotiated between sovereign states, likely with considerable difficulty,
    4. has not been a subject of contentious historical debates (in any media I’ve sampled, over decades), notably not engaging the special talents of historical revisionists,
    5. has not been a focus of internationally collaborating activists seeking to redress grievances of the displaced (for better or worse),
    6. has resulted in the displaced people, often traumatized and impoverished, rebuilding their lives as citizens in their new nations,
    7. and as such, these large scale people movements have consumed almost zero media (and internet) bandwidth, for generations,
    8. and, took place without a permanent dedicated international community mandate (UN, etc) to financially support the displaced, in perpetuity, thereby avoiding phenomenon such as: dysfunctional social structures associated with successive generations living on welfare; populations being inundated, decade after decade, with ethno-religious blood libel propaganda inciting hatred and violence via the schools and local media; incessant rock and Molotov cocktail throwing; suicide bombings; stabbings; vehicular rammings; and finally, emergence of terror enclaves firing thousands of missiles.

    The cases cited involve three distinct populations of movers, so six populations would have been effected in all since people already living in the destination localities would have experienced dramatic impact.

    Right- or left-wing crackpots who express sypathy for the Palestinian cause may simply be ignorant consumers of propaganda, but often they are seekers of junk narratives which can be weaponized (against Jews) and are disingenuous, malicious, genocide enthusiasts.

    Economist tallies swelling cost of Israel to US
    December 9, 2002

    By David R. Francis Staff writer of The Christian Science Monitor
    Since 1973, Israel has cost the United States about $1.6 trillion. If divided by today’s population, that is more than $5,700 per person.

    [MORE]

    This is an estimate by Thomas Stauffer, a consulting economist in Washington. For decades, his analyses of the Middle East scene have made him a frequent thorn in the side of the Israel lobby.

    For the first time in many years, Mr. Stauffer has tallied the total cost to the US of its backing of Israel in its drawn-out, violent dispute with the Palestinians. So far, he figures, the bill adds up to more than twice the cost of the Vietnam War.

    And now Israel wants more. In a meeting at the White House late last month, Israeli officials made a pitch for $4 billion in additional military aid to defray the rising costs of dealing with the intifada and suicide bombings. They also asked for more than $8 billion in loan guarantees to help the country’s recession-bound economy.

    Considering Israel’s deep economic troubles, Stauffer doubts the Israel bonds covered by the loan guarantees will ever be repaid. The bonds are likely to be structured so they don’t pay interest until they reach maturity. If Stauffer is right, the US would end up paying both principal and interest, perhaps 10 years out.

    Israel’s request could be part of a supplemental spending bill that’s likely to be passed early next year, perhaps wrapped in with the cost of a war with Iraq.

    Israel is the largest recipient of US foreign aid. It is already due to get $2.04 billion in military assistance and $720 million in economic aid in fiscal 2003. It has been getting $3 billion a year for years.

    Adjusting the official aid to 2001 dollars in purchasing power, Israel has been given $240 billion since 1973, Stauffer reckons. In addition, the US has given Egypt $117 billion and Jordan $22 billion in foreign aid in return for signing peace treaties with Israel.

    “Consequently, politically, if not administratively, those outlays are part of the total package of support for Israel,” argues Stauffer in a lecture on the total costs of US Middle East policy, commissioned by the US Army War College, for a recent conference at the University of Maine.

    These foreign-aid costs are well known. Many Americans would probably say it is money well spent to support a beleagured democracy of some strategic interest. But Stauffer wonders if Americans are aware of the full bill for supporting Israel since some costs, if not hidden, are little known.

    One huge cost is not secret. It is the higher cost of oil and other economic damage to the US after Israel-Arab wars.

    In 1973, for instance, Arab nations attacked Israel in an attempt to win back territories Israel had conquered in the 1967 war. President Nixon resupplied Israel with US arms, triggering the Arab oil embargo against the US.

    That shortfall in oil deliveries kicked off a deep recession. The US lost $420 billion (in 2001 dollars) of output as a result, Stauffer calculates. And a boost in oil prices cost another $450 billion.

    Afraid that Arab nations might use their oil clout again, the US set up a Strategic Petroleum Reserve. That has since cost, conservatively, $134 billion, Stauffer reckons.

    Other US help includes:

    • US Jewish charities and organizations have remitted grants or bought Israel bonds worth $50 billion to $60 billion. Though private in origin, the money is “a net drain” on the United States economy, says Stauffer.

    • The US has already guaranteed $10 billion in commercial loans to Israel, and $600 million in “housing loans.” (See editor’s note below.) Stauffer expects the US Treasury to cover these.

    • The US has given $2.5 billion to support Israel’s Lavi fighter and Arrow missile projects.

    • Israel buys discounted, serviceable “excess” US military equipment. Stauffer says these discounts amount to “several billion dollars” over recent years.

    • Israel uses roughly 40 percent of its $1.8 billion per year in military aid, ostensibly earmarked for purchase of US weapons, to buy Israeli-made hardware. It also has won the right to require the Defense Department or US defense contractors to buy Israeli-made equipment or subsystems, paying 50 to 60 cents on every defense dollar the US gives to Israel.

    US help, financial and technical, has enabled Israel to become a major weapons supplier. Weapons make up almost half of Israel’s manufactured exports. US defense contractors often resent the buy-Israel requirements and the extra competition subsidized by US taxpayers.

    • US policy and trade sanctions reduce US exports to the Middle East about $5 billion a year, costing 70,000 or so American jobs, Stauffer estimates. Not requiring Israel to use its US aid to buy American goods, as is usual in foreign aid, costs another 125,000 jobs.

    • Israel has blocked some major US arms sales, such as F-15 fighter aircraft to Saudi Arabia in the mid-1980s. That cost $40 billion over 10 years, says Stauffer.

  121. Phil you are praising Noam Chomsky and AOC. How droll. I didn’t realize Chomsky was still alive. Last I heard he was drooling on himself a decade ago. Shame about him being Jewish. He is one of the good ones, right?

    So here we have Gaza being pummeled (again) for launching ineffective rocket barrages at the Israelis. Couldn’t see that coming, right Phil?

    Meanwhile, for The UNZ Review’s entire existence we’ve been hearing here from just about everybody how Hezbollah won such an heroic victory over the evil Israelis in Southern Lebanon in 2006.

    The problem at brass tacks with all your analysis of Israel’s conflicts is that Israel is a democracy and its enemies are not.

    The plight of the Gazan Palestinians is brought on by their leaders. Their leaders launch the rockets BECAUSE they expect, want and know the consequences.

    Chomsky says Netanyahu has “cultivated an increasingly intolerant and authoritarian type of racist nationalism.”

    Type being the key word voiding, nah, I’m gonna use cancel…cancelling all the others. Israel is still a democracy and there is every indication that most Israelis support what their government ordered the military to do.

    Do Gazans harbor feelings of racist nationalism? How many Gazan mothers are getting the big picture of Hamas’ strategy?

    The big question I have is whether everybody weeping over Gaza will remember what year this happened next year when it isn’t in news anymore…I take that back. I know the answer.

    “Objectively speaking, Palestine has been the victim of the Jewish state and not vice versa and Israel could be charged with genocide, mass murder or ethnic cleansing, whatever or however one chooses to describe it. One could go on for pages describing the human rights abuses and war crimes that the indigenous Muslim and Christian Arab inhabitants have had to endure at the hands of the Jewish Israelis over the past seventy plus years.

    Israel has even declared itself legally a Jewish state with inferior rights for the 20% of the population that technically are Israeli citizens but consisting nearly all of Palestinian Christians and Muslims. Those Palestinians who are not citizens are under Israeli imposed martial law on the West Bank and have no rights whatsoever, including the right to life. Israeli soldiers who shoot to kill unarmed Arab civilians, including children, are almost never punished and some of them are actually celebrated as heroes.”

    Bravo to Philip Giraldi for calling it out for what it is. Craven American politicians who defend Israel truly are not acting in the best interests of the United States and Americans, for “Washington will be rightly blamed by nearly everyone for enabling Israeli behavior.” Not only “Washington” but all Americans are besmirched by this craven kowtowing to a criminal apartheid state.

    Israel has no right to exist. It could have overcome the questionable circumstances of its origins as a state, but it has not. It has forfeited the “right to exist” that it could have earned by good behavior, but it has not earned the right by good behavior. It has shown itself to be sly, mendacious, greedy, heartless, racist, ungrateful toward its primary sponsor, the USA and so Israel now has less right to exist than it did in 1948. In addition it has created a cloud that all Jewish Americans and others in the Jewish diaspora must increasingly recognize and deal with. The more that Zionists and the diaspora holler “anti-semitism” the harder it is to respect any Jews at all.

    Typical ignorant, hate-filled semitic supremacist propaganda — a feeble, flailing, failed attempt to “morally justify” the semitic supremacist settler-colonialist entity in Palestine.

    Your attempt to assert that it’s somehow “too late” to evict the Zionist settlers and free the indigenous Palestinian subalterns from this alien, oppressive, apartheid regime is simply ludicrous in historical terms — how long did the Pieds-Noirs live in Algeria again? And at least the French had the excuse that they were freeing indigenous French slaves from their Barbary captors when they moved in…

    Also, like many hasbarats, you seem confused about the definition of the word “nation.” Hint: it’s not synonymous with “country” — the term “nation-state” is not redundant. Here, let’s have one of your buddies, ol’ Chucky Schumer, explain it to you:

    Very good point!

    I hadn’t thought of it that way.

    Indeed, in the American revolution there wasn’t an army until finally I think the Continental Congress at Philadelphia did appoint George Washington to create and take command of the Continental Army.

    Before that—say, at Bunker Hill—it was just rebel militias.

    Per Wiki, Bunker Hill was June 17, 1775. The Second Continental Congress created the Continental Army on June 14, 1775. So, basically it was on paper but not in existence.

    I suppose there has to be one government for all Palestinians in Gaza, the West Bank, and the Occupied Territories in order for it to order the creation of an army.

    Maybe the Palestinians could affect American perceptions if they undertook some serious reframing and deliberately linked their own situation with that of the American rebels. If Hamas fighters compared themselves to the Lexington and Concord and Bunker Hill anti-colonials.

  126. Thanks again, Mr. Giraldi. Fine work.

    In spite of the seemingly intractable misery Israel routinely inflicts upon the Palestinian people, the latter remain irrepressibly, indefatigably resilient in the aim to liberate themselves from the yoke of Zionist tyranny.

    While most of the world appears to have abandoned Palestine, its residents hold fast to a consciousness that the world matters not but for the struggle. Robbed, beaten, tortured, ravaged, and derided, they continue to persist against overwhelming odds, casting aside aspersion like an old, threadbare cloak. Behold the spirit by which they are destined to prevail, to impress upon us the manner in which to live, without fear of loss or death, even as fire floods their world.

    Witness the enemies of humanity, the sangfroid, self-confident advocates of murder, theft, and destruction who, for all their effort to conceal or obscure the reality of their malevolence, continue to falter and stumble with every defense, the innate exhaustion of mendacity gradually eroding the carefully curated facade they have endeavored to preserve so long. Behold the spirit by which they are destined to fail, to lose their grasp upon the world they so ardently covet.

    In rejecting the cornerstone, Israel’s demise is inevitable.

    Palestine will surely supplant it.

    I’m kind of surprised that Rivera can’t come up with something more sensible to say such as:

    The Israelis started this by invadading the al-Aqsa mosque, by ongoing evictions of Palestinians in Jerusalem, by their ongoing human rights abuses; holding children in their prisons; committing acknowledged war crimes against the Palestinians since 1948. Targeting medics and other at peaceful protests: War crimes. Cutting off food and water: war crimes. Bombing hospitals: War crimes. Stealing land and demolishing homes: War crimes.

    Rivera should have been much better prepared for this face-off than he seems to have been.

    Why can’t Rivera get his act together to just state the facts, as Giraldi does?

    Unfortunately he came across as weak and clueless, only talking about children and not about the actual political and military situation in which Israel is the aggressor and is committing war crimes on a daily basis with official US approval.

    That is exactly right! Hamas know that sending thousands of rockets into Israel will cause reprisals and they know they will not achieve military victory this way, yet they embark on this course of action anyhow, their own people’s well being be damned.

    Israel’s apartheid policies notwithstanding, Hamas are a terrorist organisation and indiscriminate shelling of civilian population is a criminal act, no matter how “primitive” their rockets are. Much is made of how they are ‘homemeade’ as if that mattered in the slightest. They are made to mostly Iranian designs and if they are simple – well, there was nothing advanced about Soviet Katyusha even way back in WWII but it was an extremely effective weapon then, and it still is now. You don’t need advanced guidance systems if all you want to do is shell civilians at random.

    There was an article somewhere saying how support for Palestinians in the West changes along with age, young people being more likely to support Palestine. I think one reason might be that older people (especially in Europe) still remember that PLO was once an actual menace, not just those poor, oppressed fluffy bunnies they paint themselves as today – in the West anyway, because PLO eventually realised that bombing random Westerners was not winning them any fans (who would’ve guessed, right?)

    But on their own turf Palestinians remain what they always were: terrorists, except now under the banner of Hamas rather than PLO.

    For several weeks prior to this conflict, I had been posting news in the Aggregated Newslinks section of this webzine about Israel’s crimes against the Palestinian people in the West Bank and Gaza, from land theft, to “price tag” attacks, to destruction of crops, to direct physical assault, to arrest of children harvesting vegetables … the litany of abuses is extensive.

    Were there no three article limit per day, I could have posted no less than five stories detailing such crimes daily.

    Then comes the injustice of Shaikh Jarrah. I’ve provided the details about it here:

    https://www.unz.com/announcement/open-thread-5/#comment-4652130

    Adding insult to injury, we have Israel’s restrictions upon Muslims in the al Aqsa compound during the month of Ramadan.

    Israel provoked this conflict. Netanyahu knew precisely what he was doing in Shaikh Jarrah and al Aqsa and he chose the month of Ramadan deliberately to instigate war as a means of deflecting attention from his pending legal problems.

    Now you want to fault Hamas for being provoked, but the fact remains: Israel’s occupation of Palestine is, by internationally affirmed law, illegal. The Geneva Conventions do not confer upon Israel the right to maintain that occupation in the manner it has, and Hamas is legally entitled to use armed force to resist it.

    Only this prayer will bring lasting peace:
    “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the Father, send now Your Spirit over the earth.
    Let the Holy Spirit live in the hearts of all nations, that they may be preserved from degeneration, disaster and war.
    May the Lady of All Nations, who once was Mary, be our Advocate.
    Amen.”

    Lasting peace will only come after the return of Jesus Christ to set up the kingdom of God on this earth. He was crucified as “king of the Jews” and he will return to fulfil the promise in the Davidic covenant 2 Samuel 7:12-17.
    The angel Gabriel promised Mary “(Jesus) shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: and he shall reign over the house of Jacob forever: and of his kingdom there shall be no end.” Luke 1: 32-33.
    Mary is not our advocate now. She is sleeping the sleep of death, awaiting the resurrection and her reward in her Son’s kingdom.
    “There is only one mediator between God and man, the man Christ Jesus”. 1 Timothy 2:5.
    Unfortunately, there is a fair bit of violence to go before Jesus returns, see Zechariah 14:1-3, when “his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives….and the mount of olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west” Zechariah 14:4.
    Then the Jews will “look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him”. Zech 12:10.
    The events that will see in the kingdom of God are detailed in Zechariah chapters 10-14.

    Unfortunately, i’m not sure people will blame Washington. Psychopaths like Kissinger believe the slightest sign of weakness (read ”appeasement”) must be avoided at all cost. They think that heavy bombardments of countries show the prestige of the nation and its reputation of power.

    ”In 1982, for example, the Israelis invaded Lebanon and bombed Beirut, killing thousands of innocent people. The bombing also drove Yasser Arafat out of Lebanon. From that moment on, Arafat’s prestige and power plummeted, until a centrist Israeli politician like the late Yitzhak Rabin could afford to recognize him without risking Israel’s security. If Arafat were still running his veritable state-within-a-state in Lebanon, the peace process of the 1990s and Jordan’s recognition of Israel would be unimaginable. Yet many Israelis, not to mention Arabs, still critize the late PM Menachem Begin for bombing Beirut. Was Begin right? It depends.”

There was no racial solidarity between the top and bottom of white society in the antebellum South, unlike in Israel. The elites in the antebellum South did not make war on blacks, and had no desire to remove or eradicate blacks, either.
