Israel ensures a continued Ass-Kissing Congress by using some of the AID the U.S. Government pays Israel ($5 billion a year – or what we, the U.S.A, declare) as a… Rebate?

And you wonder why this body of degenerate congressional individuals always veto’s any resolution condemning  Israeli atrocities and war crimes against Palestinians.

 

 

As abhorrent the Norway massacre is, it must be quite annoying and “deflating” to the Muslim bashing community of degenerates who wished that the terror act would have been carried out by Muslims rather than one of their “own.” It seems that Christians are terrorists too! We’ve seen that in the massacres and crimes committed in the U.S.A – the likes of Timothy McVeigh, Andrew Joseph Stack III, Jared Loughner just to name a few! Yet, in the U.S., the media would not refer to these degenerates as “terrorists.”

One comment that struck me on a news site, stated:

I am shocked this had nothing to do with muslims. Why were muslims groups claiming they were responsible for the attacks then? 

Who was the “Muslim Group” that claimed credit? Well, someone please share this piece of “enlightening” information. I bet that the claim came from some sadist media reporter or agency who quickly assumed that it had to be “Muslims” who committed the crime, and by being the “first” to report this, their fame and incredible “sources” would become the talk-of-the-town.  Regardless, if such a Muslim group is somehow linked to the terror attack, I would also bet that they will bear a new name – and one which contains the word “Jihad” in it – and we’ll be led to believe such “reports” because, like cattle, we believe whatever garbage we’re being fed.

The sad truth is atrocities like this are a daily occurrence in Palestine. Israelis jail, massacre, kill and ethnic-cleanse Palestinians daily. They even publicly discriminate against non-white Jews in Israel!

Israel is most probably the only country in the world which imprisons women and children of “suspected” so-called terrorists, indefinitely. The world always chooses silence over Israeli terrorism (Deir Yasin, Qana, Hebron, Jenin, Gaza, Jerusalem, International Flotilla, etc.) and their use of prohibited weaponry (cluster and phosphorus bombs against civilians) so as not to upset “Jews” or be referred to as “anti-Semite!”

“I know Israel mistreats the Palestinians and stole their land. I know Israel spies on America and sells top secret info to Russia and key business plans to China. I know Israel has hundreds of illegal nuclear missiles but I don’t care because the Jews are God’s chosen people. I know this because the Jews wrote a book that says so.”

The other day I read an email from Rev. Ted Pike linking to an interesting audio titled Can Christians Defend Old Testament Killing of Canaanites? His speech is symptomatic for the cognitive dissonance many Christians are experiencing when confronted with the antics of the Jewish God. I still remember vividly my disgust listening to the story of the slaughter of an army of 200,000 Hethitians by the archangel Gabriel who came to aid of the ‘Chosen People’.

Whenever I think about these things, I am reminded of Jesus’ famous words in Matthew 7:20, “By their fruits ye shall know them.” Forget about their twisted arguments and self-serving claims of ‘higher orders’. Just look at their actions. Are they good or are they evil? Do they treat others the way they would like to be treated if they were in the other person’s shoes?

There can be no doubt that throughout history the God of the ‘Chosen People’ has made them commit the most horrific crimes.

There can be no doubt that throughout history the God of the ‘Chosen People’ has made them commit the most horrific crimes. From the ritual killing of the first born child to countless genocides. I don’t care what kind of excuses they concoct to justify the unjustifiable. If there is any higher authority telling them to do these horrid things, it’s certainly not the loving and forgiving father figure Jesus told us about.

The reason why the Pharisees hated Jesus so much, and got him killed, was that he told them right into their face that they were utterly evil. “Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?” – Matt 23:33. And in John 8:44, Jesus is quoted as calling the Pharisees “children of the devil”.

Some people blame the perversions of Babylon. The ‘oral tradition’[1] – they say – have hijacked Judaism and secretly replaced God with Satan. My view is that Judaism has always been utterly evil. Either the God of the Jews is suffering under multiple personality disorder, or Jewish priests have never preached anything but Satanism in disguise.

By their fruits ye shall know them. Their fruits are telling me that the Jews are – and always have been – Satan’s Chosen People.

Footnote:
[1] After the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple by the Romans, the ‘oral traditions’ Jesus rallied against were codified as the Babylonian Talmud and are widely considered to be the highest religious authority in Judaism.

When you’re asking the wrong question, you never get the right answer. The question is not “who and what is Al-Qaida?” The question is — who hired them.

If you live long enough, you see the same stories, generation after generation — credit manipulation causes depression and starvation, followed by war and weapons based economic recovery; the names may change but the situations and scams do not, from the French Revolution forward to today.

And if you look hard enough, you discover that the people really running the world are not the familiar names you read in the newspapers. You also realize that stories about those famous names are really endless and irrelevant distractions from the more important question that needs to be asked:

Who is responsible for all this confusion? All they talk about is peace. And all we get is war. Is this the human paradigm? Is that why nothing ever gets fixed in the world?

Yes, it’s because the real questions are never asked. The real criminals are never identified.

Why are they never identified? Because the real criminals own the media. Every story you ever read is what good guys they are, and not about what colossal crimes they have committed. The same is so very true about Americans, who believe they are benevolent heroes, when in reality they have accounted for more unjust murders of innocent people than any other country in history. All in the name of freedom and democracy. How did this happen?

The answer is simple. You know what it is. The people we have been taught not to mention in polite company control every aspect of our lives, and if we mention them in a derogatory way, our lives are then destroyed . . . economically, socially, and in other ways that are worse.

Even the best reporters on the Internet maintain the fiction that it is countries which actually run the world, when for at least the last hundred years those really in charge have been the international money lenders, who have owned and ruled every king and president who has reigned during this period. But this is not reported on, not even by our best reporters, who either know what they have to do to keep their jobs, or they lose their jobs.

I can phrase this question in an even more vivid way. Name me one company, one industry, one profession . . . that is not owned outright or totally manipulated from behind the scenes by Jews? The Catholic church joined the club hundreds of years ago when it let the Rothschilds manage their money. Dupont? Monsanto? Bill Gates? Larry Page? All Jews.

Ezra Pound’s words resonate louder than ever.

“Since the Civil War, It has been useless to speak of the United States as an autonomous entity.”

Anybody who still draws a paycheck from a Jewish source (and that would include the U.S. government, certainly a Jewish source) better realize that by this very act they are no part of any solution, but part of the problem that is well on the way to destroying everything we ever loved or hoped to build.

Two things we must remember now in our political thinking.

  1. The wrong side won World War II. Three Jewish countries got together to destroy the one country in world history that openly opposed this Jewish financial hammerlock on the world. These false pretext invasions of Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and a multitude of other countries would not have happened but for the result of World War II. At least they wouldn’t have happened driven by the U.S. military working for Israel.
  2. Anyone who calls themselves a Jew subscribes to the philosophy that they have a right — no, a religious duty — to rob and kill or enslave all the non Jews of the world. This is clearly a pathology that is kept secret by the very commercial interests that are ruled by the insanity of this very philosophy. So when some liberal do-gooder with a degree from Jewish-controlled Harvard University tells you she’s acting in your best interests — and this applies to schools, medicine and practically every category there is — you better think again.

The vast majority of Internet writers who tiptoe around use of the world “Jew” are actually complicit in the coverup of Jewish control of the world by their play-it-safe don’t-want-to-jeopardize that ad-revenue-stream timidity.

“It’s just business,” they chirp, not realizing that each time they fail to call a Jew a Jew, it puts another nail in the collective coffin of humanity, which tries to remain, though comatose, decidedly and happily non Jewish.

So the answer to all of the world’s pressing problems — assuming that most of them can be fixed by the proper application of money — are directly hooked into this Jewish problem, which is control of reality from behind the scenes and by sophisticated technological media manipulation that keeps people locked into their trivialities and oblivious to the colossal murder plot now being executed throughout the world by the same families that have been doing essentially the same thing for hundreds of years.

And exactly what are they doing?

Well, think about what you have left. All that other stuff you used to have, they already took that. Your future earnings? They’ve already taken most of that, not to mention stolen most of the industries from your country that you might have worked for. What they are doing is what they have always done. They’re about to take the rest of what you have, and when they have that, what do you think they’ll do to you?

So now you have the answer. BFD. What are you going to do about it? Let them etch it on your tombstone?

It’s also very important to mention that this is not the problem of one country, or a few countries. It’s the problem of all countries. The countries who refuse to go along with these demonic world bankers, at least those nations which have not already been obliterated, remain under constant threat of sabotage and destabilization.

Always a pack of savage beasts since the Jewish whiskey sellers doused the blankets for the Pequot tribe with smallpox in 1639, Americans have become much better killers since the Jews took over completely, don’t you think?
I’m still trying to decide on the greatest Jewish achievement in American history. There is no shortage of nominees. So you get to decide. Was it:
  1. The sabotaging of the U.S. Constitution by allowing the bankers who funded the Revolutionary War to retain control of U.S. currency? Or was it .
  2. Fomenting the Civil War by first flooding the land with slaves at a high price, then destroying the fabric of fledgling America by insisting the slaves be free. (This destabilization plan is still in operation with unbridled immigration.)
  3. Inventing the atomic bomb. Oh Fukushima.
  4. Putting cancer-viruses in the polio vaccine.
  5. Hiding Tesla’s discoveries, a decision which precipitated all of the petroleum wars of the 20th century and changed the course of world history for the far worse.
  6. Killing Royal Rife. 100 percent success rate curing cancer with vibrational medicine in the 1930s. Think of the people who have been needlessly robbed and killed by Jewish doctors prescribing radiation and chemotherapy.
  7. Television.
  8. Fluoride.
  9. The World Wars, totally unnecessary.
  10. Ruination, prostitution and debauchery of all arts and sciences with the ulterior motive of making Jews superior when they clearly are not, can’t be because of their philosophy. That’s why they buy their Nobel Prizes.

Feel free to write in your own nomination. There is no shortage of evidence. It should eliminate the possibility of you ever asking the wrong question again. This will greatly increase the probability that you will finally, despite massive forces arrayed against you, acquire the correct answer.

The victims of Europe and the Holocaust decided that they want a state of their own, somewhere, anywhere in the world.

After considering many options (at the expense and with total disregard to whoever may have already lived in the selected lands), Palestine was chosen. Among the Jewish Zionist options were such countries as Argentina, Ghana and other countries.

The Zionist movement arose in late nineteenth-century Europe, influenced by the nationalist ferment sweeping that continent. Zionism acquired its particular focus from the “ancient Jewish longing” for the return to Zion and received a strong impetus from the increasingly intolerable conditions facing the large Jewish community in Tsarist Russia. The movement also developed at the time of major European territorial acquisitions in Asia and Africa, and benefited from the European powers’ competition for influence in the shrinking Ottoman Empire.


One result of this involvement with European expansionism, however, was that the leaders of the nascent nationalist movements in the Middle East viewed Zionism as an adjunct of European colonialism. Moreover, Zionist assertions of the contemporary relevance of the Jews’ historical ties to Palestine, coupled with their land purchases and immigration, alarmed the indigenous population of the Ottoman districts that comprised Palestine. The Jewish community (yishuv) rose from 6 percent of Palestine’s population in 1880 to 10 percent by 1914. Although the numbers were insignificant, the settlers were outspoken enough to arouse the opposition of Arab leaders and induce them to exert counter pressure on the Ottoman regime to prohibit Jewish immigration and land buying.

As early as 1891, a group of Muslim and Christian notables cabled Istanbul, urging the government to prohibit Jewish immigration and land purchase. The resulting edicts radically curtailed land purchases in the Sanjak (district) of JERUSALEM for the next decade. When a Zionist Congress resolution in 1905 called for increased colonization, the Ottoman regime suspended all land transfers to Jews in both the Sanjak of Jerusalem and the Wilayat (province) of Beirut.
After the coup d’etat by the Young Turks in 1908, the Palestinians used their representation in the central parliament and their access to newly opened local newspapers to press their claims and express their concerns. They were particularly vociferous in opposition to discussions that took place between the financially hard-pressed Ottoman regime and Zionist leaders in 1912-13, which would have let the world Zionist Organization purchase crown land (Jiftlik) in the Baysan Valley, along the Jordan River.

The Zionists did not try to quell Palestinian fears, since their concern was to encourage colonization from Europe and to minimize the obstacles in their path. The only effort to meet to discuss Palestinian and Zionist aspirations occurred in the spring of 1914. Its difficulties illustrated the incompatibility in the aims of both sides aspirations. The Palestinians wanted the Zionists to present them with a document that would state

  • Zionists precise political ambitions,
  • Zionists willingness to open their schools to Palestinians, and
  • Zionists intentions of learning Arabic and integrating with the local population.

The Zionists rejected this proposal.

The proclamation of the BALFOUR DECLARATION on November 2, 1917, and the arrival of British troops in Palestine soon after, transformed the political situation. The declaration gave the Zionist movement its long-sought legal status. The qualification that: nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of the existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine seemed a relatively insignificant obstacle to the Zionists, especially since it referred only to those communities’: civil and religious rights, not to political or national rights. The subsequent British occupation gave Britain the ability to carry out that pledge and provide the protection necessary for the Zionists to realize their aims.

Chaim Weizmann, president of the World Zionist Organization, placed maximalist demands before the Paris Peace Conference in February 1919. He stated that he expected 70,000 to 80,000 Jewish immigrants to arrive each year in Palestine. When they became the majority, they would form an independent government and Palestine and would become: “as Jewish as England is English”

Weizmann proposed that the boundaries should be the Mediterranean Sea on the west; Sidon, the Litani River, and Mount Hermon on the north; all of Transjordan west of the Hijaz railway on the east; and a line across Sinai from Aqaba to al-Arish on the south. He argued that:

“the boundaries above outlined are what we consider essential for the economic foundation of the country. Palestine must have its natural outlet to the sea and control of its rivers and their headwaters. The boundaries are sketched with the general economic needs and historic traditions of the country in mind.”


A Virus called Israel

Quite an expansionist dream for a Russian Jew!

The irony is that all most Jews living in Israel today are Europeans. Those born in Palestine since 1948 cannot claim the land as theirs. They are Palestinians but of Jewish faith. Does the fact that, say, American Muslims who were born and raised in the USA, have any right to claim America as a “Muslim State?”

Thank You!

The map above (Palestine 1946), published as a United Nation Map number 93 (b) in 1950, clearly proves – when compared to present-day Israelis maps,  that the Nazi-like Zionist simply occupied, terrorized and continue to ethnic cleanse the land of Palestine.

The seven well equipped Arab armies who attempted to destroy the poorly armed and newly founded ‘Jewish State’!

he baseless myth, of how the Arab armies wanted to destroy the ‘Jewish State’, has been propagated in all sectors of the Israeli society, especially in its school system, military boot camps, and media. As it will be proven below, this myth was deemed necessary by most Zionists to legitimize their continued USURPATION of the Palestinian people’s political, civil, and economic rights.

Often when Israelis and Zionists are confronted with facts contrary to their liking, they counter by accusing the sources of fabrication or being part of the “anti-Semitic” Arab propaganda. To avoid such a “confusion”, we’ll directly quote two of the most prominent pro-Israeli historians, Martin Van Creveld (the renowned Israeli military strategist and historian) and Martin Gilbert, who wrote:

  • “In the Event of invading [Arab] forces were limited to approximately 30,000 men. The strongest [consider this fact while reading the next quote] single contingent was the Jordanian one, already described. Next came Egyptians with 5,500 men, then the Iraqis with 4,500 who ….. were joined by perhaps 3,000 local irregulars. The total was thus around eight rather under strength brigades, some of them definitely of second-and even third-rate quality. To these must be added approximately 2,000 Lebanese (one brigade) and 6,000 Syrians (three brigades). Thus, even though the Arab countries [population] outnumbered the Yishuv by better then forty-to-one, in terms of military manpower available for combat in Palestine the two sides were fairly evenly matched. As time went on and both sides sent reinforcements the balance changed in the Jews’ favor; by October they had almost 90,000 men and women under arms, the Arabs only 68,000.” (The Sword And The Olive, p. 77-78)
  • “Senior Hagana commanders met with committee [UN Special Committee On Palestine-UNSCOP] members in Jerusalem’s Talpiot quarter in similarly surreptitious circumstances to express confidence that Jewish forces, which they numbered at 90,000, including 35,000 reservists, could overcome any Arab assault should it come to war.” (Jerusalem Post)
  • “Ben-Gurion made serious efforts, shortly before the United Nations vote on the Partition proposal, to seek the neutrality of King Abdullah of Transjordan, whose British trained and officered army, the Arab Legion, was the STRONGEST fighting force in the Middle East. The king had long been at loggerheads with Haj Amin al-Husseini, the Mufti of Jerusalem, for the moral leadership of the Arabs of the whole region. Abdullah’s secret interlocutor was to be Golda Meir:”‘ …… He [King Abudullah] soon made the heart of the matter clear: he would not join in any Arab attack on us. He would always remain our friend, he said, and like us, he wanted peace more than anything else. After all, we had a common foe, the Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini.'”(Israel: A History, p.149-150)
  • “As for Abdullah’s Arab Legion, it had fought better than any other Arab force. Yet on scarcely any occasion had the Arab Legion attempted to conquer territories allotted to the Jews by the partition plan, preferring to stay on the defensive.” (The Sword And The Olive, p. 95)
  • “…. there was no common military headquarters, no attempts at coordinating the offenses of the Arab armies, and … not even a regular liaison service for sharing enemy intelligence.” (The Sword And The Olive, p. 83)
  • “Perhaps the most important [of the Arab armies problems] was a crippled shortage of ammunition, owing to the international arms embargo …, in the case of the Iraqis and Egyptians, long lines of communications. For example, after February 25, 1948, the Arab Legion received no new ammunition for its 20mm guns. Some of the ammunition used by the Iraqi artillery was more than thirty years old; the Syrians had no ammunition for their heavy 155mm guns. Whereas Jewish stockpiles were growing all the times [especially the big arms shipment from Czechoslovakia in May 1948], the enemies were so depleted they stole ammunition shipments for each other. In addition, they were ill-coordinated, technically incompetent, slow, ponderous, badly led, and unable to cope with night operations that willy-nilly, constituted the IDF’s expertise.” (The Sword And The Olive, p. 95-96)
  • Soon after the execution of Operation Dani in the first half of July 1948, Yigal Allon wrote a Palmach (Haganah’s strike force) report stating that the expulsion of Lydda‘s and Ramla‘s inhabitants had:

    “clogged the routes of the advance of the [Transjordan Arab] Legion and had foisted upon the Arab economy the problem of “maintaining another 45,000 souls . . . Moreover, the phenomenon of the flight of tens of thousands will no doubt cause demoralization in every Arab area [the refugees] reach . . . This victory will yet have great effect on other sectors.” (Israel: A History, p. 218 & Benny Morris, p. 211)

Although we disagree with the Arab armies’ statistics (30,000 men) that was presented by Mr. Creveld, the reader could conclude the following:

  • The strongest Arab army to enter Palestine was in cahoots with the Israelis from the start. Based on H.M. King Abdullah‘s orders (who also commanded the Iraqi Army in addition to Transjordan’s), the strongest Arab armies did not even encroach on the areas allotted to the Jewish state by the 1947 UN GA Partition plan. On the contrary, the truth was the exact opposite, for example:

    1- Lydda, Ramla, and the Triangle Areas were handed over to the Israelis without a fight. Although Transjordan’s Army withdrew based on the orders of H.M. the King, the Iraqi Army (which was positioned few kilometers north in Ras al-‘Ayn) was given explicit orders not to intervene (their motto in Arabic was: maku ‘Awamer). It should be noted that these areas used to be densely populated with Palestinians, were fertile, and were strategically located for both Arab and Israeli supply lines.

    2- When the Israeli Army attacked the Egyptian (south) and Syrian (northeast) armies in mid-October, 1948, the Iraqi and Jordanian armies were forbidden from opening a third front in the middle and south. The Iraqi Army was capable of splitting Israel in half if it was given the orders, and the Jordanian Army watched from the sidelines as the Israeli Army mauled the Egyptians in southern Hebron and Beersheba areas (Righteous Victims, p. 244). Note that the Iraqi Army was well positioned in the Tulkarm-Jinin areas (southeast of Haifa) which is only 12-14 kilometers from the Mediterranean, click here for a map illustration.
  • The other strongest Arab armies, Egyptian and Iraqi, had long supply and communication lines away from their bases in their respective countries.
  • Saudi Arabian and Sudanese armies contributed few thousand soldiers in the middle of the war to shore up the exhausted Egyptian army in southern Palestine.
  • Under American and French pressure, the Lebanese Army was sidelined from the start, and it did not even cross the international borders. At the most, the Lebanese army provided a mediocre artillery cover to some ALA [Arab Liberation Army] volunteers at the beginning of the war. (Righteous Victims p. 233-234)
  • When the Arab armies entered Palestine on May 15, 1948, close to 400,000 Palestinian refugees were already ethnically cleansed out of their homes, and they clogged the roads, burdened local economies, and demoralized the Arab populations and armies, as it was admitted by Yigal Allon. In other words, the Palestinian refugees were used as a weapon against Israel’s enemies.
  • The Arab armies neither coordinated their military operational plans, nor shared military intelligence among themselves. In fact, it wasn’t until April 30, 1948 that the Arab armies’ chiefs of staff met for the first time to work out a plan for military intervention. It’s worth noting that this plan was later wrecked by H.M. King Abdullah, when he made last minute changes just before the entry of any Arab army into British Mandated Palestine. (Simha Flapan, p. 133 & Iron Wall, p. 35)
  • According to a Jewish Agency assessment of the Arab intentions and capacities, submitted in March 1948, reported that the Arabs chiefs of staff had warned their government against an invasion of Palestine and any lengthy war because of the internal situation in most of the Arab countries. For example, revolt in Yemen kept the Saudis at bay and there was a mass riot in Iraq against the Anglo-Iraqi treaty, (Simha Flapan, p. 123-124)

*** Mostly soldiers, non-civilians.

  • These statistics clearly show that the number of Israeli soldiers killed in offensive actions were well over 60% (2,759/4,558) of the total Israeli soldiers killed between November 30, 1947 and March 10, 1949. So from the Israeli prospective, the so called “War of Independence” was more offensive than defensive in nature.
  • The Israelis maximally exploited the rivalry between H.M. the King Abdullah of Transjordan and al-Hajj Amin al-Husseini. For example, before the entry of any Arab armies to Palestine on May 15th, 1948, al-Hajj Amin (who resided at the time in Tyre-southern Lebanon) wanted to declare a provisional Palestinian government in the Galilee, with Safad being its capital. To preempt such a plan, H.M. the King pulled out Transjordan’s irregulars troops out of Safad on May 11th, 1948, which was the primary reason for its falling into Israeli hands few days later (Benny Morris, p. 105). Another good reason that enticed H.M. the King to collaborate with the Jewish Agency was the promise of future payments of $4 million a year for the next subsequent 5 years. (Simha Flapan, p. 138)
  • Although there was an arms embargo on the warring parties in the Middle East, the embargo negatively affected the Arabs more than the Israelis. While the Arab armies were depleting their arms and ammunitions, the Israeli army was stockpiling weapons and ammunitions from a huge arms shipment from Czechoslovakia that arrived in early May, 1948.
  • By October 1948, the Israeli army had 90,000 armed men, while the Arab armies had 68,000 armed men.
  • It’s a fabricated myth that seven well equipped, organized, and coordinated Arab armies attempted to PUSH the poorly armed Jews into the sea, click here to read our rebuttal to this myth.

Ben-Gurion, the first Israeli Prime Minister, recognized that Palestinian nationalism created the very danger he was most afraid of. He knew that the victory in 1948 was achieved not because the Israeli Army was more heroic but because the Arab armies were corrupt and the Arab world was divided. He became obsessed with the fear that a charismatic leader would modernize Arab education, their economies, and unite all the Arab states. He wrote on November 11, 1948:

“The Arab people have been beaten by us. Will they forget it quickly? Seven hundred thousand people beat 30 million. Will they forget this offense? It can be assumed that they have a sense of honor. We will make peace efforts, but two sides are necessary for peace. Is there any security that they will not want to take revenge? Let us recognize the truth: we won not because we performed wonders, but because the Arab army is rotten. Must this rottenness persist forever? The situation in the world beckons towards revenge: there are two blocs; there is fear of world war. This tempts anyone with a grievance. We will always require a superior defensive capability.” (Simha Flapan, p. 238)

Finally, directly quoting the famous Israeli historian Avi Shlaim who stated in his famous Iron Wall book:
  • “This popular-heroic-moralistic version of the 1948 war has been used extensively in Israeli propaganda and is still taught in Israeli schools. It is a prime example of the use of a nationalistic version of history in the process of nation building. In a very real sense history is the propaganda of the victors, and the history of the 1948 war is no exception.” (Iron Wall p. 34)
  • “Despite all the political miscalculations and failures of those who planned the Sinai Campaign, it is their version that became firmly entrenched in the mind of the overwhelming majority of Israelis. The popular perception of the 1956 war in Israel is that it was a defensive war, a just war, a brilliantly executed war, and a war that achieved nearly all of its objectives. This version of the war was propagated not only by members of the Israeli defense establishment but by a host of sympathetic historians, journalists, and commentators. However deeply cherished, this version does not stand up to scrutiny in the light of the evidence now available. It is a striking example of the way in which history can be manipulated to serve nationalist ends. The official Israeli version of the 1956 war, like that of the 1948 war, is little more than the propaganda of the victor.” (Iron Wall, p. 185)

Palestine The Only One State Solution

The Israeli virus that infected a region of 300,000,000 Arab Semites has no room for such foreign and Nazi-like criminals. It is time these “people” move back to their countries of origin (except the descendants of the original Jews who lived in Palestine prior to Zionism’s arrival) or face the erupting Arab revolutions sweeping the Arab world. There will be no mercy then.

Remember: the Jewish “good book” demands that its followers kill with NO MERCY! So, an Eye for an Eye!

And that’s probably  why the Jewish teachings and prophecies expect the demise of “Israel” in the near future!

81 Reasons Why Gaza has the right to self-defense

By Julie Webb-Pullman

Seventy-nine of them can be found in United Nations Security Council Resolutions “directly critical of Israel for violations of U.N. Security Council resolutions, the U.N. Charter, the Geneva Conventions, international terrorism, or other violations of international law.” (1)

Ironically, after violating 80+ UN Resolutions,  Israel Demanded UN Response to Palestinian Rocket “Attacks!”

Number 80 can be found in the Goldstone Report (2), the recommendations of which have yet to implemented some 18 months after its submission to the Human Rights Council, and Paragraph 1912 of which stresses “all States parties to the Fourth Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War of 12 August 1949 have in addition the obligation, while respecting the United Nations Charter and international law, to ensure compliance by Israel with international humanitarian law as embodied in that Convention.”

Has that happened? Clearly not. (3)

The most compelling reason number 81, can be found in the United Nations Charter, Article 52 which states: “Nothing in the present Charter shall impair the inherent right of individual or collective self-defence if an armed attack occurs against a Member of the United Nations, until the Security Council has taken measures necessary to maintain international peace and security.” (4)

There would also be a Reason 82, but for the United States power of veto exercised in the Security Council in February 2011. (5)

Read Ashkelon: Why Gaza Exists

If the international community has abandoned its responsibilities towards Palestinians, and particularly towards Gaza, as the above examples over the last 63 years plus this map of Palestinian territories so graphically illustrate, what else is left to Gaza but self-defense?

The Stealing -and Ethnic Cleansing – of Palestine

Israel and its chorUS disingenuously cite Israel’s right of “self-defense” to justify not only Israel’s disproportionate military response to Gaza – and Palestinians’ – genuine right to self-defense, but also to attempt to disguise Israel’s blatant land-theft from existing citizens.

Contrast the “newcomers” in Israel, for example, to many of those who in recent years have arrived in Australia. The latter have been considered illegal immigrants and incarcerated in off-shore islands or desert detention camps –the subtle distinction being that

  1. those latterly arriving in Australia sought refuge from repressive regimes whereas the Israeli immigrants came from European and North American democracies…(enough said, perhaps) and
  2. unlike Australia’s (and New Zealand’s) immigrants, who now accept the existing population’s rights to their existing property, culture and citizenship, Israel’s immigrants bulldoze and destroy the homes of existing residents to build their own in their place, not only rendering thousands homeless but also destroying historic, economic and culturally-important sites such as religious buildings, olive groves, farms, and cemeteries – and now legislating that they also be of the Jewish religion in order to have citizenship.

Is not our perception of the wrongness of such actions why New Zealanders, for instance, just spent thirty years redressing such wrongs in their own country, through the Waitangi Tribunal? Is not our perception of the wrongness of such discrimination why we all fought to end similar structural apartheid in South Africa?

In the past week, Israel has killed at least 10 people and seriously wounded scores more in in Gaza in sustained military attacks with sophisticated weaponry targeted at civilians, a week in which so-called ‘rocket’ attacks from Gaza (into traditional Palestinian territory) have not caused any Israeli deaths, or physical injury. Yet Israel on Wednesday threatened “After barrage of rocket and mortar fire, Vice Premier Shalom says Israel may have to consider wide operation in Gaza; Minister Limor Livnat: Operation Cast Lead 2 may be in order.” (6)

After a cosy telephone chat to US President Obama, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu on Thursday said from Moscow that “Israel’s reaction to rocket attacks will be measured” (7) – but by what, is the question…caesium, perhaps?

US Secretary of Defense Robert now waits in Israel for Netanyahu’s return, discussing with his Israeli counterpart Barak how to ensure Israel maintains its ‘qualitative military edge’ in ‘a period like now when Israeli-US security relations were so strong.’ (8)

Obama in South America while his troops hammer Libya, insisting that the US role will be minor, Netanyahu in Moscow proclaiming the same for Gaza…this arms’ length war-mongering to give an appearance of moderation makes me very suspicious – to paraphrase Shakespeare, “Methinks they doth protest too much.”

Yes, on any reading of the situation, Gaza certainly does have good cause for concern about their security and territorial integrity.

In the face of continuing military attacks against civilian targets and the absence of any meaningful and/or enforceable UN Security Council Resolution to protect them, and of any meaningful assistance from the international community in preventing Israel’s ongoing use of force, they have every legitimate reason to resort to self-defense, under Article 52 of the UN Charter.
