Israel Is America’s Hands

Israel Is America’s Hands

By: Peter Chamberlin

It has been reported that the alternative media is rapidly becoming the preferred choice for news for a majority of people. Internet news is filling the role of government watchdog that the corporate press has given-up. Our job as defenders of the First Amendment is to blow holes in the wall of news censorship that has been erected around this country by the mainstream media, in their subservience to government/corporate domination. It is time for the alternative press to gain legitimacy by breaking the greatest story ever suppressed and as a result, force an end to the war of terror.

It is the responsibility of the alternative press to enlighten the American people about who is behind all of these interminable little “piss-ant” wars that drive us towards a global conflagration. All of these little wars begin with “terrorist” attacks, which we then rush to defend against. All of these vicious terror attacks can be traced back to American/British/Israeli intelligence agencies. Repeated revelations being made in foreign media about CIA/Mossad connections with terror kingpins like Dawood Ibrahim, Sheikh Omar, Ayman al Zawahiri (Kosovo Liberation Army), Turkish “deep state” elements, etc., and terrorist attacks carried-out in places like Yemen, Syria and Kosovo are providing hard proof of our charges of American/Israeli state terrorism.

We can create a powerful image of the terror creating machinery by blending knowledge of the American sponsorship of terror with vivid images of the actual state terrorism taking place on a daily basis. This is the way to prove that the terror war is our creation, something our leaders wanted and carefully manufactured over many years. This is the story of the century. It is the responsibility of the alternative press to make it common knowledge and thereby gain legitimacy over the “mainstream media.”

Their plans require that we be brought to a boil slowly, like the frog in the beaker, until the ripeness of forces is achieved, meaning that all elements of their strategy of tension have to be increased to their optimum levels, before civilization is given that one push that takes us over the edge. Our only hope is to ramp-up the resistance beyond their expectations and ability to control events according to plan, outmaneuvering their gatekeepers and agents of control.

Consider the anti-Israeli protests which are now building throughout the world; how can we increase the focus on Israeli criminality, to expose the tentacles of money/control which have been woven into the fabric of American government and life in general? We have to increase American awareness of the fact that Israeli aggression is American aggression. US actions, whether they be military or intelligence agency related, and Israeli actions fight for the same causes, pushing forward to the same objectives. We must own the guilt associated with the Palestinian slaughter. We are killing the children and old people to advance our dark agenda.

It takes a severely psychopathic mind to fire missiles into crowds of unarmed civilians. Such an act is indistinguishable from a car bomb attack. The truth warriors of the alternative press must focus all available light on the cold brutality of national leaders who are fully prepared to literally exterminate thousands, even millions of innocent souls, in order to preserve their superior positions and to validate their thoughts of American “exceptionalism” and other ideas of national and racial superiority. The evidence of the evil natures of these men who lead us is apparent in their plans and in the actions they support.

This war is based on the widely accepted belief that our civilized world is under assault by Muslim “savages.” As their natural “superiors,” the West has a divine duty to keep the uncivilized world under control, by using our intellectually superior technology to violently suppress primitive violence. The basic idiocy of this line of “reasoning” should be apparent to any thinking moral human being. The problem is, that the apparent absurdity of branding one group of humans as inferior and the group that oppresses them as superior is obscured by the barbaric bigotry which has been summoned-up and amplified to sell this war. This lethal combination of absurdity and bigotry stands ready to prevail once again.

The idea that we are “superior” and our cause “just” undergirds barbaric concepts of “targeted assassinations” with car bombs and guided missiles, dismissing humanitarian concerns for the victims’ rights, since they are not fully evolved, some sort of “sub-humans.” The supremacist thinking behind this tactic, like most of the inhuman tactics and strategies employed in the terror war, were patterned on the failed inhuman policies developed by Israel. We can readily see from the murderous campaign now underway in Gaza that our mentor’s “solution” is not only to use terrorism yourself, but to multiply it exponentially.

All traitorous politicians blindly support every Israeli action, even those that are inhuman and obviously detrimental to America. Bush is not the only national leader providing cover by silencing outrage for Israeli campaigns of murder, as he did for two months in Lebanon. American politicians spreading their poisonous venom through the controlled media paralyze millions into inaction, buying time for the slaughter, so that the Zionist killers can claim as many innocent Arab lives as possible.

The world cannot endure the ongoing level of carnage taking place within sight of available cameras for very long.

The building outrage will soon reach a point where the demands for actions to restrain IDF massacres will become irresistible. Even a majority of Israeli citizens were screaming for an end to the war on Lebanon, after two months of on air genocide. When this tipping point is reached, where the shared guilt of immorality outweighs the mixture of national pride and mortal fear, a majority of Americans will be looking for a way out.

Before this point is reached another secondary military action will be launched. This second front opening in the next phase of the war will be a major escalation (in Pakistan), which will serve to divert awareness of the Palestinian slaughter and create conditions threatening enough to usher in martial law and the elimination of the free press.

The key to overturning their plans is for us to outthink them, anticipating their next steps and taking steps of our own to make them impossible. We have to find ways to alter their timetable, to increase the revulsion to their cold-blooded slaughter to the point where people become motivated to demand action before the anticipated arrival of utopia on January 20, when Obama opens the Pakistani front. It would be good for us if the building European resistance took an even uglier turn (especially the militant protesters in Greece and France) and started torching Israeli embassies.

It should be a simple matter to fold the economic protests against the international bankers’ cartel into the anti-Israeli protests. We should organize blockades around every Israeli embassy and make it impossible to conduct business there normally.

The next two weeks will be marked by blood, military attacks and counter-attacks in the Middle East, and a general ramping-up of hostilities throughout the region. Protestors should be prepared to visually document the government confrontations that will surely multiply, as the police state begins to rear its ugly head. Each of us has to decide how we will react to upcoming events, searching our souls to understand what we are really made of and what actual beliefs we hold dear. Will I be willing to lay my life down to stop the violence, or will I surrender to my own violent urges and become one of the killers myself, in a misguided attempt to establish world peace through violence?

Will you stand-up for the rights of humanity, or will you cower in the corner while the parade of death marches across your TV screen and into your own home?

My Brief Response to Zionist Disinformation

My Brief Response to Zionist Disinformation

by Khaled Amayreh
29 December, 2008

Zionist Hasbara operatives have been claiming that the current Israeli genocidal onslaught in Gaza is a “war against Hamas” and that it was only necessitated by the firing of Palestinian rockets on Israel.

This is a big lie. Read the following:
“Hamas had repeatedly said it was willing and ready to stop “all” firing of projectiles from Gaza if only Israel would lift the deadly blockade. And Israel repeatedly said “No.”

Israel has been saying ad nauseam that it ended its occupation of Gaza. Well, why does Israel then retain its control of Gaza skies, Gaza shores, Gaza sea, Gaza border crossings (even with Egypt). Why does Israel retain its control of Gaza life? Why?

Hence, the issue of firing “rockets” on Israel (they are homemade projectiles that make more noise than damage), should be viewed largely as a red herring.

Effectively, Israel has been giving Palestinians in Gaza either of two choices, to die of starvation as a result of the blockade or be exterminated by the Israeli war machine.

Indeed, these so-called “rockets” are nothing more than a desperate outcry for justice, for lifting the deadly blockade. Gaza has simply been reduced to a modern-day Auschwitz. The only difference is that Jews are now playing the role of the SS.

Hamas did meticulously observe a six-month ceasefire, despite the persistence of the Nazi-like blockade which very much resembled the Ghetto Warsaw siege in 1942-43. However, Israel on 13 November, Israel carried out a foray into Gaza, killing 6 people.

More to the point, Israel killed 49 Palestinians during the ceasefire. Not a single Israeli was killed.

Besides, hundreds of Palestinians have perished because Israel would not allow them to access medical care or medicine. I saw many Palestinians die an agonizing death because the “light upon the nations” wouldn’t allow them to reach hospital a few blocks away. In short, we are talking about a Judeo-Nazi state. I am saying this because when Jews think, behave and act like Nazis, they become Nazis. We must call the spade a spade, especially when it happens to be in the hands of our gravediggers.

Therefore, it is a big lie to call this war a war against Hamas. This is a Nazi-like war of extermination against the people of Palestine.

If the war were against Hamas, as the war criminals of Tel Aviv keep claiming, Israel wouldn’t have targeted market places, drug stores, college buildings, private homes, mosques, cultural institutions, roads, businesses, etc.
Only a state with a Hitlerian mindset would target an entire society and then claim that it is fighting Hamas! It is simply a big lie.

So, Israel is simply carrying out a real genocide…and an indiscriminate one for that matter.

Today, even a Jewish rabbi of imminence used the term “genocide” to describe what Israel is doing in Gaza.”

Ignorance, insanity or outright fascism

Ignorance, insanity or outright fascism

Bush administration says: Hamas Must End Attacks on Israel, Bush Administration Says Obama is totally silent in the face of the third straight days of Israeli butchery. We know Obama well so far. He is world-renowned for his eloquence. So, are those who talk ignorant or insane because we know that it was Israel which broke ceasefire agreement on Nov 5? See: NOVEMBER 5TH, 2008 – Six Hamas activists killed during Israeli raids in Gaza Strip.

So what is going on. Is it only the US administration that knows the best whereas Turkey says Gaza attacks a crime against humanity , there are Anti-Israeli protests across EuropeSarkozy calls for immediate halt to Gaza violence , Britain slams ‘unacceptable’ loss of life in Gaza and Asian governments roundly condemn Israel’s ‘genocide’ in Gaza Strip . US Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) is calling for a United Nations investigation into Israel’s attacks on Gaza, criticizing Israel for a disproportionate response to Hamas rocket attacks. “All this was, and is, disproportionate, indiscriminate mass violence in violation of international law,” Kucinich said in a statement. “Israel is not exempt from international law and must be held accountable.”

Three Palestinian children from the Balosha family, of five who were all killed in the same Israeli missile strike, are seen in the morgue before their burial at Kamal Edwan hopsital in Beit Lahiya, northern Gaza Strip, Monday, Dec. 29, 2008.

Israel air strikes spark protests worldwide and Morgues in Gaza are overflowing with bodies. If it doesn’t make any difference to anyone, it is the administrations in Tel Aviv and Washington. Israel considers ground attack and mobilises more troops to erase Gaza off the face of the earth. Even Haaretz writes: Trying to ‘teach Hamas a lesson’ is fundamentally wrong.

On the other hand, the man of ‘change,” Obama, defers to Bush on Gaza genocide. And Bush puts the blame on victims of decades of occupation, aggression, ethnic cleansing, racism and genocide. Is is so that Israel is a morally bankrupt state, which is led and supported by psychopaths. If Hitler and other fascists were psychopaths, then it might be true for the administrations in Tel Aviv and Washington as well, because the rest of the world combined cannot be out of its mind as we can see from the global reaction to the Israeli crimes against humanity so far. If Bush administation has some other solid reason for the nonsense it has spewed thus far or Obama has some eloquent lie, the world has yet to see it. At the moment, they stand as accomplices to the unfloding fascism in our age.

Exception From Humanity

Exception From Humanity

The War Against Palestine

By GEORGE SALZMAN and MANUEL GARCIA, Jr.

The war against the Palestinians arises from the merging of the Zionist view of Jewish exceptionalism with the view in the United States of American exceptionalism, which have focused their common root ambitions for domination and possession as a hostility to Islam, and this is the leading crusade in the “clash of civilizations,” proclaimed by just-deceased Harvard historian Samuel P. Huntington, which is the war against the world’s poor and dark-skinned people, the war of conquest carried out to enforce a rule of worldwide apartheid by a culturally Euro-American, racially white, highly industrialized capitalist elite.

The Zionist view of Jewish exceptionalism is critically examined, and demolished, in the book Overcoming Zionism, by Joel Kovel. This mind-set boils down to ‘any victimization of Jews we Zionists can remember, historically, justifies all our aggression, persecution and even genocide of Palestinians; we are, and will always be, the exceptional victims of world history and so are forever blameless; to disagree is to be one with our historical persecutors.’ The Jewish religion is quite incidental to the actual intent of the exceptionalism; Zionism is a criminal conspiracy drawing participants through a Jewishness filter, in the same way the Mafia exploits Sicilian heritage to filter its recruitment and promotion.

The operation of Zionist exceptionalism in Palestine mirrors that of the white Christian exceptionalism Jews had suffered under for centuries, and which was described in the book The Destruction Of The European Jews, by Raul Hilberg. I (MG, Jr.) was made aware of the insights of the Kovel and Hildberg books by Professor Emeritus (of physics) George Salzman. The three stages of development of racial-religious labeled exceptionalism are: conversion, expulsion and extermination. Hilberg summarizes “the three successive goals of anti-Jewish administrators. The missionaries of Christianity had said in effect: You have no right to live among us as Jews. The secular rulers who followed had proclaimed: You have no right to live among us. The Nazis at last decreed: You have no right to live.”

The arc for European Jews between the years 400 and 1940 was first to be pressured to convert to Christianity or face employment discrimination, then from the 13th to the 16th century Jews resisting conversion were expelled from many countries, and finally the Nazis devised industrialized extermination. The arc for Palestinians seems to be compressed to a time scale measured in decades rather than centuries. Conversion was never an option, and many forms of exclusion were enforced from the first days of the State of Israel (which, couldn’t we see as just the earliest Zionist-occupied section of Palestine?). Wars of territorial conquest since 1967, and the continuing invasion of “unoccupied” territory by “settlers” and their protective cavalry, the IDF — or land rushes into Indian Reservations, as we knew them in the U.S. — bend the arc from exclusion to extermination. In the logic of Zionist exceptionalism, there is nowhere within the limits of their territorial vision where Palestinians have “a right to exist.” What other kind of mentality could inflict modern aerial bombardment of essentially unarmed, corralled masses of people? Our world remains at Guernica, the Stukas and Heinkels are now F-16s and Lavi jets.

If the world does not rise up in unison to halt this slaughter in Palestine, and the relentless and hypocritical land theft motivating it, who could then blame the descendants of the victims — for there will be children who survive to remember — if they are well satisfied with the collapse of our own society in the future, and in fact help in its destruction through some great catastrophe, which we may be too arrogant and self-assured to envision now just like the self-satisfied elites of the 1930s. Time and the pressure of increased impoundment always breach dams, and resolve unnatural imbalances by a leveling flood. Time and the unrelieved resentments of increasing world poverty will ultimately breach our separation walls of control and drown our luxuriant indifference under a leveling tsunami. This is not a biblical type of prediction, just a matter of logic. If we, in the nations with the power to discipline the Israeli Zionists — most especially the United States, do not act soon and consistently thereafter for self-evident justice, we will pump up oppositional energies to our national progress. If we continue to act like conquerors apart from the rest of humanity, whom we view in purely utilitarian terms — as slaves — we must inevitably drown under a Red Sea of our own making.

Mere appeals in internet publications can do little, but in our capitalist, hierarchical world, each person can act to a degree commensurate with their level of political and financial power. And, the best application of that agitation is to influence those above you to take action commensurate with their power. Yes, this is the opposite of doing what is good for your career by doing what is necessary to advance the careers of your bosses. I leave to you the delicacy of striking a balance between your particular career and your brotherly and sisterly duty to humanity; but I will irritate you as I can, to choose the more rebellious path, because ultimately career is a personal war against humanity and a defilement of self-respect, which is exchanged for lucre and an illusion of power. Rebel against exceptions to your sympathies. Rebel against indifference to suffering.

There are many, many injustices and tragedies underway in our world, which cry out for immediate attention, and no one can really rank them as to deserving more or less help. Nevertheless, many currents of history have been distilled into what we see today as the war against the Palestinians, and it is keenly observed throughout the world. For this reason, we could say that the fate of the Palestinians is the measure of the world’s conscience, and will mark our level of civilization in the pages of time.

Israel’s Final Solution

Atrocious Images of the Zionist ” Casting Lead Massacre” – Gaza December 29 2008

Hiyam Noir, PalestineFreeVoice

December 29/30 2008 4:31am

GAZA – The Israelis are mobilising 6700 reservists in preparation for a ground incursion,and the Israeli minister of defense, Ehud Barak have officially declared war against Hamas.

In the third day of the Israelis war campaign against Gaza Strip,called “Casting Lead Operation” Israeli panzer and bulldozers are now deployed along the borders of the Palestinian territory. The senior Hamas official, Ghazi Hamad warned last night the warlord Ehud Barak, advising him to carefully watch his back.

“Ehud Barak will be the next target for assassination, if he continue the air strikes in Gaza Strip”. The border between Gaza and Israel have been declared a closed military zone. Earlier,in the past such a move has often followed by an Israeli ground attack on Gaza.

In three days,Israeli massive bombardment have killed over 300, including 23 children and injured more than 1.200 Gaza residents. In retaliation for Israelis atrocities in Gaza, condemned as war crimes by leaders in the Arab world, and by other leaders around the globe, Hamas will call for suicide bombers to attack inside Israel.

“You [Israelis] owe me,and you owe me big.You robbed me of my city and my property.You owe me reparations (which I know that you,or your children,will one day have to pay,and under duress if need be) for all the pain and unspeakable suffering you have put me, my family and my fellow exiles through…..”Author and political activist Fawaz Turki

Israel Warns America Yet Again–There’s “Hell To Pay” For Not Attacking Iran

Israel Warns America Yet Again–There’s “Hell To Pay” For Not Attacking Iran

To most, the language appears all-too-familiar and not unlike the childhood story of the “boy who cried wolf”. Indeed, it has all the hallmarks of the typical fear-mongering all have come to know all-too-well in recent years featuring a paranoid Zionist military commander working for a notoriously paranoid nation and warning of the next “holocaust” if everyone does not immediately stop what they are doing, pay strict attention and follow the prescribed course of action as laid down by the Jewish state.

Speaking recently at a conference at the Institute for National Security Studies at Tel Aviv University, Israel’s Minister of Defense Ehud Barak sternly warned his audience (and the world at large) that “If Iran acquires a nuclear weapon, it could try to attack the United States,” specifying that if the Islamic Republic built “even a primitive nuclear weapon” similar to the one used in “destroying Hiroshima” that she would “not hesitate to load it on a ship, arm it with a detonator operated by GPS and sail it into a vital port on the east coast of North America.”

The first thing in his statement sticking out like a sore thumb is his confidence, stating UNEQUIVICALLY that Iran “Would not hesitate” in detonating a nuclear weapon against the world’s most powerful nation. This is the same United States by the way that presently has enough firepower parked off Iran’s coast to destroy her 1,000 times over. This in itself begs the following question–Is this yet another case of the organically unstable Zionist mindset that has become all-too-familiar these days or is there something else? In other words–What does he know that others–including the most sophisticated intelligence agencies working for the US government–don’t know?

It is understandable that some would shrug such rhetoric off, and particularly after the billion or so instances where every man, woman and child on the planet has had to endure the “He wants to wipe Israel off the map” shtick that got real old real fast after the first 500,000 times.

In this case however it would be unwise to assume this latest development involving the defense minister is just another case of bluff and bluster and of the Jewish state “crying wolf” with regards to some new Hitler or Haman. Barak is not just ANY defense minister, but the defense minister a theocratic/fascist enclave that is just DYING to get a war started with Iran. Judging by the news headlines, this is all there is these days within the one-track Zionist mindset. IRAN/IRAN/IRAN/IRAN….No, in this instance the smart money says that these dire predictions may very well take place in what is commonly referred to as a “self-fulfilling prophesy”.

Therefore, what those familiar with Israel’s history should conclude by Barak’s statement is that this is not just another case of empty fear mongering on the part of the Jewish state, but rather a clear and present threat, namely that if America does not do the bidding of the Jewish state by attacking Iran that Israel–out of her black hat of magic tricks–will pull one of her made-to-order false flag attacks against America in order to “get the ball rolling“ in the right direction.

In other words, with the full blessings of every person, place or thing of measurable political power in the Jewish state including Israel’s intelligence service Mossad, Prime Minster Ehud Olmert and Foreign Minister ‘Tzippy“ Livni, what Barak was saying in effect to all the various spies, analysts, intelligence officers and diplomats working in virtually every nation of the world was that–

“If Uncle Sam does not get busy with the business of opening up a new front in our war against the Islamic world, we, the Jewish people, will detonate one of our several hundred nuclear warheads in an east coast American city that will then be blamed on Iran…”

And just in case something might have been “lost in translation” and the thick-headed Gentiles towards whom the threat was being made did not “get it,” Barak concluded his remarks with “We are not taking any option off the table, and we recommend the world not take any option off the table, and we mean what we say.”

Obviously those “options” still “on the table” include Israel resorting to the kind of business in which she has dirtied herself in the past, which just so happens to include attacking (or allowing to be attacked) American interests in order to pin the blame on someone else.

Those who dismiss the possibility that such a threat was indeed made by Israel should understand that there is a language used in the criminal underworld–both at the street level and in the more “sophisticated” world of modern politics–that is almost imperceptible to all except the “initiated”. To the average person phrases such as “I’m going to make him an offer he can’t refuse” sound like perfectly innocuous, simple tidbits of business parlance like “a deal too good to pass up” rather than death threats. Someone sending a personal clothing item along with two dead fishes seems more like a college fraternity prank rather than an announcement that a certain someone now rests peacefully at the bottom of a large body of water.

In truth though, the meaning they convey is one of life and death– “Give us what we want if you want to stay alive…”

And likewise with political language employed by states such as Israel, a nation founded by gangsters with gangster money and built on top of a gangster ideology that justifies any criminal behavior as long as it benefits “la famiglia”. What appear to be harmless statements made by persons of noted importance such as Barak actually have a significance far deeper than what is superficially apparent to the average Joe, and even if this significance is lost on the average person merely trying to live an honest life and pay his/her bills, it most assuredly has not been lost on the spies, analysts, diplomats and others whose job is to read between the lines when threats are being made in pursuance of certain geo-political demands.

It is no secret Israel wants (demands) Iran’s destruction and wants it done by non-Jews. Israel is a nation founded on 21st century BC ideas while at the same time trying to make these ideas work in a 21st century AD world. All the war, invasion, rape, conquest, plagues, smiting and bloodshed that are the meat and potatoes of the Old Testament are as much the principles upon which the Jewish state was founded as “We hold these truths to be self evident” are the bedrock of the American nation. The hysteria characterizing Israel’s reaction to the National Intelligence Estimate released in December 2007 by the 16 most powerful intelligence agencies working for the US government that stated categorically and unequivocally that Iran had no nuclear weapons program since 2003 betrayed the irrational, bloodlust mindset driving Israel and her desire to see her ancient Persian enemies destroyed as recounted in the Old Testament story found in the Book of Esther.

Therefore, Iran MUST be attacked, no ifs, ands or buts about it. In a day and age when the Jewish state needs these periodic clashes in order to achieve an otherwise-impossible sense of cohesiveness within an organically fractured, irrational and self-devouring political creature such as Israel, a re-enactment of Persia’s (Iran’s) defeat by God’s chosen people as occurred in the book of Esther does wonders in putting to rest any discussion concerning the “propriety” of the Jewish state’s existence.

As far as a nuclear attack on an east coast American city itself, the results of such an attack–apart from the human cost–would be incalculable in terms of economics and political instability. At a time when–not just America, but indeed the entire world–is so precariously perched at the edge of an abyss that threatens economic, political and social chaos, an American city going up in a mushroom cloud would set in motion a chain reaction the results of which are not difficult to imagine. The resulting meltdown would take–not just years, but more than likely generations to recover.

And once again, just as in 9/11, Israel–through one or many of her carefully ‘chosen’ spokespersons–would then go before world media with barely contained smirks and giggles and say “Well, don’t blame us, we warned you something like this was going to happen” . In the same flavor as the 5 dancing Israeli’s seen filming the destruction of the Twin Towers or Benjamin Netanyahu’s remarks following 9/11 that the attacks on America resulting in the deaths of over 3,000 were “good” in that they would generate “immediate sympathy” for Israel, so too would the Jewish state capitalize on the event and shake her finger in the world’s face and say “tsk, tsk, tsk…should have paid better attention to the warnings we gave…” In the meantime, American leaders would be scrambling to deal with–not only the apocalyptic situation at hand, but as well the loss of public confidence in their ability to lead.

What is noteworthy about this latest threat is the fact that it is a follow-up to threats made directly to George Bush back in May when he visited the Jewish state to help celebrate Israel’s 60-year orgy of uninterrupted violence and bloodshed against the Gentiles who have suffered the unfortunate “honor” of living in such close proximity to God’s chosen people. Before the soles of his shoes had even gotten dirty after stepping on the hallowed ground of Israel he was met at the Ben Gurion airport by the “Men in Black”–meaning the Orthodox Rabbis–who then accosted him with a list of commandments and threats, all cryptic and apocalyptic in their nature, about what the leader of the free world would be facing if he was found slacking off with regards to his “duties” to the Jewish state. A partial list of their demands and threats included reminding him that “God ordained the nations of the world to strengthen the nation of Israel” while telling him to forget the idea of running away from his duty of making war against Iran, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Egypt, and Lebanon, specifying that American troops be used to protect the “Divine rights of the nation of Israel, and remove from her any threat.” The consequences of not doing these things were clear–“destruction” and ”Certain doom” that would “endanger all life on earth” and capping off their threats with “Your fate and that of all those with you hangs in the balance of the destiny of our land…”

..and about 5 months later–BATTA-BOOM!!!-out of seemingly nowhere, the economy of the United States enters a storm not seen since 1929. Indeed, it seemed as if the rabbis had friends in “high places”–protégé’s of Moses no doubt–who had the power to make such plagues happen. As a result of the economic turmoil that resulted in loss of jobs and a housing crisis without precedent since the great depression, George Bush, his party and his legacy found themselves swirling down the political sewer like a piece of used toilet paper.

Those who doubt Israel is capable (or willing) to go to such lengths need to better acquaint themselves with the USS Liberty, a US spy ship that–with complete foreknowledge of malice–was attacked by the air and naval forces of the Jewish state for 2 hours during the latter end of the 6 Day War. Israel’s obvious intention was that the ship be sunk, Egypt be blamed (in the same way as planned with the previously-unsuccessful “Lavon Affair”) resulting in a United States of America out for Arab blood, just as occurred following 9/11. As it was, F-4 Phantom jets–loaded for bear (meaning armed with nuclear weapons) were on their way to Cairo with orders to annihilate the capitol of Soviet-allied Egypt. It was only the miracle of Liberty’s refusal to sink–despite thousands of armor-piercing rounds, a thousand rockets, hundreds of gallons of napalm and 5 torpedoes–that prevented what would most likely have been a nuclear war between the United States and (what was at that time) the Soviet Union.

Dozens of other such examples of Israeli treachery against America abound, the most recent and notorious being her foreknowledge and direct involvement with the events on 9/11. Those who would scoff at the notion that the Jewish state is capable of doing such things–including detonating a nuclear weapon within an American city–should keep in mind that (just as she has said on more occasions than can be counted) she is not like other nations. In the words of her former Defense Minister Moshe Dayan she is ”a dangerous mad dog” on one hand and yet on the other she is the “embodiment of God,” a “light among nations” and “joy of the entire earth” as her political/religious caretakers describe her. While the other nations of the earth operate under for-the-most-part rational plans for their existence, Israel does not. She is like any cult community like Jim Jones’ Guyana or David Koresh’s Waco, and in the event her little experiment begins to show signs of failure, her solution is simple–scrap the whole thing, meaning 6 billion souls on earth–so that Israel’s God “Yahweh” can start over again with a clean slate and, hopefully, “do it right” the next time and make good on His promise to make “His” chosen people rulers of the earth.

And lest some think all of this is pure speculation on the part of anti-Semites with over-active imaginations and who read more into the language of gangsters than what is actually there, let Martin Van Creveld, one of Israel’s most respected military historians speak on the matter at hand–

“We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets for our air force…. We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that this will happen before Israel goes under.”

The Planned Collapse of America

[IT SEEMED LIKE A GOOD TIME TO RE-RUN THIS ESSAY FROM 2007]

A system based on usury and putting everyone in the “poor house” is an economic order that is guaranteed to produce a democratic revolution,

whenever the misery index of the armed populace exceeds the limits that they are willing to peacefully bear,

without striking back at the source of their misery.

The Planned Collapse of America

By: Peter Chamberlin

There is no shortage of speculation about “why” our leaders are still adamantly planning for the destruction of Iran, in the face of overwhelming popular opposition, even though everyone except the neocons and their allies believes that America would not survive our own actions.  An irrational attack is planned and apparently the decision has been chiseled in stone.  It may be for Israel.  It may be for oil.  Maybe it is for world domination?

We are launching a nuclear world war to save us from ourselves.  “We have found the enemy and he is us.” – Pogo.  We risk blowing the world apart, to avoid watching America slowly choke on its own excesses.

The government has known for decades that America is on a countdown to self-destruction.  Among the elite it is common knowledge that our “global economy” must one day collapse from its own dead weight.  In 1974 an intensive research project was undertaken by the Stanford Research Institute and the Charles F. Kettering Foundation for the Dept. of Education.  Their final report was released as the Changing Images of Man

It was compiled by the SRI Center for the Study of Social Policy, Director Willis Harmon.” This is a far-reaching investigation into how the basic nature of man might be changed.  The Aquarian Conspiracy describes the implementation of their work in the real world.

.

The most reassuring part of “Images” is that it confirms my own conclusions about our crisis, but is also the most disturbing part, for it confirms my worst reservations about this time.

The object of the research

was the development of a plausible vision of the future in which democratic methods survive, major problems are managed successfully if not resolved, and the unfolding of the human potential continues to expand.  In other words, the postulation of a “desirable future” including feasible paths to its realization…

The government was looking forward to a very troubling future, trying to figure out the best path through it.  The plan was to find ways to shape and mold mankind into a new cultural image, complete with new ideas and ideologies, even religious ones.  The root of the problem was human nature, and solution was to re-shape the competing forces of daily life, in order to forge a new image of a new human nature.  The researchers were brutally honest in seeking all available knowledge pertaining to their research, and in assessing the current common image of man-on-earth.

The research revealed that there were a multitude of crises that were about to intersect in America’s near future.  Not the least of these converging catastrophes was a rapidly approaching breakdown of both American capitalism and democracy.  The collapse was a natural result of globalism and monopoly capitalism.  The basic greed that powers the system eroded the American political and economic structures, exposing the foundation of immorality and unfairness that amplifies the social unrest.  The Stanford researchers clearly predicted that the American economy was destined to collapse from its own dead weight.  The data also showed that that economic collapse was to be accompanied by disastrous social repercussions, such as rioting and upheaval, which would lead us into a “garrison state.”

The thing about this research is that this work has confirmed that our economy based on parasitic capitalism, where the small elite sits atop the heap of men and gorges on their lifeblood, is destroying the social fabric of America.  This system is based on a stacked deck, where the top elite always reap the profits that are made to rise to the top through the corporate profits-based system.  The research confirmed that the growing inequities of such a system were ever increasing and with them, elevated social tensions.  A system based on usury and putting everyone in the “poor house” is an economic order that is guaranteed to produce a democratic revolution, whenever the misery index of the armed populace exceeds the limits that they are willing to peacefully bear, without striking back at the source of their misery.

Changing Images of Man predicts an American economic collapse and a “garrison” (police) state,” if the overwhelming inequities of our economic system are not corrected by powerful multinationals making more humane decisions.   Alternatives to this doomsday scenario are discussed, all of which point to the need to devote all available resources towards transforming the image of man, changing man’s nature, instead of altering the corrupted economic system which has brought America to this dire state.  In this government study it was inappropriate to denounce the evil culprits behind all our troubles (who pull the strings on government itself), even though the task was to document and remedy the damage that they have done.  Instead, they are cited as the hopeful “saviors,” that we should look to for help and leadership.  The hypocrisy of the hegemons!  The authors admit that it is “utopian in 1974 to think of the multinational corporations as potentially among our most effective mechanisms for husbanding the earth’s resources and optimizing their use for human benefit – the current popular image of the corporation tends to be more that of the spoiler and the exploiter.”

Instead of charging the people who are responsible for our situation, (such as men like David Rockefeller) for manipulating our economy and our democracy to maximize their profits, the multi-national corporations and their owners were exalted as the potential saviors of mankind.  Rockefeller and the elite have consistently taken steps to dominate the world by controlling people through “humanitarian” projects which, in the end, turn out to be profit mechanisms.  The “green revolution” to spread corporate farming to the Third World has been the key to globalization’s destabilizing of world labor markets, in order to create populations of “refugee workers,” who are willing to go anywhere to find work for slave wages.  This is the cause of the wave of illegal immigration into the US, from Mexico.  This is part of the proof that there are powerful individuals who are using their economic power to undermine nations in a long-term scheme to gain control of nations and multiply their profits.

Here David Rockefeller admits media collusion with his one world plans:

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the light of publicity during those years. But now the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supra-national sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”  http://www.constitutionforum.net/main_good_government.html

Rockefeller writes on page 405 of his memoirs:

Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it,” http://lonelantern.org/site/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=356

Everything that “Images” suggested to remedy shortcomings in the economic system was based on the assumption that men like this would acquire a new corporate benevolence, with CEOs gaining basic humanity.  According to Rockefeller himself (who freely admits his efforts to replace America with a “one world” order), he has been working for the greater good of man, all along.

Their conclusions on American political shortcomings were that these would be tended to by the new improved humane politicians, sort of like Bush’s “compassionate conservatives.”  Step 4 of their six-part strategy to “Bring About a Non-Catostrophic Transformation” -

“Encourage a politics of righteousness and a heightened sense of public responsibilities of the private sector…A politics of righteousness might have been laudable in any generation; it may be indispensable for safe passage through the times just ahead.”

The report authors recognize the inevitability of the rising new image of man, describing it as a quasi-religious awakening within the collective mind of man, man’s new human nature, relating it to the actual process of spiritual learning that has been going on within religions for thousands of years.  They praise Freemasonry and the skills and disciplines inculcated within its members, speculating that their ways might be the key to shoring-up our free-enterprise democratic society.

They developed a strategy to revitalize America’s motivational images, symbols and institutions, outlining five separate approaches to the problem, describing the pluses and the pitfalls of each, according to their effects upon society.  These approaches are defined as “restorative, stimulative, manipulative, persuasive and facilitative.”  Restoration of crumbling icons works best in the early stages of societal transformation (revitalization cycle).  The simulative strategy introduces new ideas, whenever the collapse of the old order becomes apparent.  The manipulative strategy seeks to limit individual freedoms. Persuasive propaganda phase is to be coupled with proven mind control techniques, to keep down the social upheaval and shape the emerging image.

“No doubt existing consciousness-changing, behavior-shaping, subliminal persuasion, and other conditioning techniques could be used to accomplish some sort of transformation of  sobering proportions (we ought to be able to be more effective than Nazi Germany).  After previously citing Nazi re-invigoration of the Germanic icons and ideals.”

The transforming revitalization process mirrors the psychiatric process of leading a patient through a psychotic break and the restructuring of his life, but on a national scale.

Once the transformation becomes apparent, social stability will become a problem, especially when society feels pushed by over-extending the stimulative stage.  Actions taken to increase the polarization between “transformation enthusiasts and the conservatives” are called “constructive,” except when it is desirable to take actions that “contribute to social cohesion.”  They were searching for the best path to bring about a controlled de-construction of everything that “America” means and the re-construction of a new improved vision of America.  They are midwifes to the delivery of the “New World Order,” as they go about the dirty business of guiding society through that predicted period of “friendly fascism.”

The great anomaly is given as the great chasm between an efficiently functioning profit-driven capitalist society and the human needs and desires of that society which go unmet, so that “profits” can be taken.  In fact, the “profit” really amounts to the bread that is taken from the poor.   The inequities and the unfairness of the corporate system are causing the breakdown of American capitalism and American democracy.  The American catastrophe is causing the breakdown of the world economy for the same reason, the basic inability of monopoly capitalism to meet the basic needs demanded by the world’s people.

Bush’s appointed task is to bully America through this turbulent period of upheaval, with as little disruption of corporate activity as possible.  Government has taken the words of this study to heart, preparing a manipulative transformation, to divert or pre-empt the coming collapse of our nation with a massive war today.  This is also one of the primary reasons for the coming world war, to serve as a prelude to American martial law.  Instead of calling out the troops after the insurrection has begun, they plan to call out the troops first.  If the American military is to forcefully control the homeland, including their own relatives, then the troops must first be convinced that the Nation’s survival depends upon their patriotic actions.  This is why the world war against Iran has not started yet, because our National Guard must first be convinced that its duty is to put down the American rebellion which will surely accompany the bombing of Iran.  The timing for their great takeover is crucial, if they want to move America past (through) the social unrest as quickly as possible.

Here are the “Elements of a Strategy for a Non-catastrophic Transition”:

1.  Promote awareness of the unavoidability of the transformation.

2.  Foster construction of a guiding vision of a workable society built around the

new image of man and new social paradigm.

3.  Foster a period of experimentation and tolerance for diverse alternatives

4.  Encourage a politics of righteousness and a heightened sense of public responsibilities of the private sector…A politics of righteousness might have been laudable in any generation; it may be indispensable for safe passage through the times just ahead.

5.  Promote systematic exploration of, and foster education regarding, man’s inner life, his subjective experience.

6.  Plan adequate social controls for the transition period while safeguarding against longer-term losses of freedom…Regulation and restraint of behavior will be necessary in order to hold the society together while it goes around a difficult corner.

There must be a new economics to deal with the “new scarcities.”   Arguing for corporate America to adopt a humanitarian aspect, the argument is made for an alternative “new socialism,” where important sectors like energy might be nationalized for the good of the country, and greater pressure put upon corporations to mandate a sort of social awareness of employee needs, as much as shareholder profits.

“The appropriate question may be not so much how to bring about a transformation…but rather how to facilitate a non-catastrophic transformation.” [page 195]

“Construct a guiding version of a workable society, built around a new positive image of humankind and corresponding vision of a suitable social paradigm.  As the old order shows increasing signs of falling apart, some adequate vision of what may be simultaneously building is urgently needed for mobilization of constructive effort.  The guiding vision has to include some way of providing for full and valued participation in the economic and social affairs of the community and society, especially for those who are physically and mentally able to contribute but find themselves in a state of unwilling idleness and deterioration of spirit.”

Despite all the report’s shortcomings and its hypocrisy, it does make some sound observations about what is needed for our immediate survival.  We should take it as a guide to what our government knows about the coming mega-crisis and a template to help us see what changes we could make if there were truly a new economy, a new social contract, a new American state.  For it is obvious to all those who take the time to look, that we are headed into a period of national freefall, when American society plunges head first, into a dark abyss of uncertainty, as the old order passes away, and the New World Order rushes in to fill the void.

We are seeing the planned collapse of America, coming down the road we are on.  What are we going to do to get our nation off that highway to hell?



PLO Calls for International Troops in Gaza

Israel is America’s attack dog.

American puppet Abbas first offered to take control after Hamas was eliminated, now he pushes the solution that will make Israel’s problems our problems, permanently.  Israel needs someone to police the decimated occupation zone, to free-up its troops for more criminal assaults on other Arab neighbors.

[SEE: American Military Bases In Israel, for NATO Peacekeepers?]

PLO Calls for International Troops in Gaza

The Palestinians’ umbrella organization Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) on Monday called for the deployment of international troops in Gaza to protect it from “Israeli crimes” amid a massive bombardment that has killed at least 318 people.

“The executive committee of the PLO has called for the deployment of an international force in the Gaza Strip to protect the Palestinian people from Israeli crimes,” Tayeb Abdelrahim, a senior aide to president Mahmud Abbas, told reporters.

“President Abbas is deploying intense efforts within the international community to protect our people and stop the massacres,” he said.

Hamas routed forces loyal to Abbas from the Gaza Strip in June 2007 after a week of deadly clashes that split the Palestinian leadership in two, with the secular Western-backed president controlling the West Bank and the Western-shunned Islamists running Gaza.

Hamas has always opposed the deployment of outside forces in Gaza.(AFP)

Israeli Patrol Boat Rams Aid Ship off Gaza

Israeli Patrol Boat Rams Aid Ship off Gaza

The Israeli navy rammed a boat loaded with medical supplies that was trying to break its blockade of the Gaza Strip, the pro-Palestinian charity operating the vessel said Tuesday.

No one was injured in the collision between the patrol boat and the 20-meter Dignity, which was trying to take three ton of medical supplies into Gaza on day four of Israeli air strikes on the Palestinian territory.

Israeli army radio said the boat — operated by the Free Gaza Movement — ignored both orders to turn around and warning shots across its bow before it was rammed.

The Free Gaza Movement, which has ran the blockade six times since August to take humanitarian supplies into Gaza, said the vessel could still sail after the ramming.

Paul Laurdee, one of the group’s founders, told AFP the Dignity had been “surrounded” in international waters about 70 kilometers off the Israeli coast and 135 kilometers from Gaza.

“It was surrounded by 11 Israeli naval vessels,” he said.

“They ordered the boat to stop, and we didn’t. They began firing over our boat and into the waters next to the boat. When the boat wouldn’t turn back, one of the naval vessels rammed the boat, but not enough to disable the boat.”

On its website, the Free Gaza Movement said the Dignity was on a “mission of mercy” carrying three ton of medical supplies “donated by the people of Cyprus,” from where it set off on Monday.

“Our people are communicating with the Israelis as to what’s next,” Laurdee told AFP.

“We will try to dock in Egypt or in Lebanon, or all the way back to Cyprus. But there is doubt about fuel on board and whether they can make it all the way back to Cyprus as normally we refuel in Gaza.”(AFP)

Mossad Matron Wants World to Share In Guilt for Crimes Against Humanity

Israeli Tanks Massed Near Gaza, Livni Wants International Backing for the Attack

Israeli tanks were massed at the Gaza border on Sunday as warplanes again pounded Hamas targets in the densely populated enclave as Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni urged the international community to cast blame on Hamas.

“I expect the international community, including the entire Arab world, to send a clear message to Hamas: ‘It is your fault. It’s your responsibility. You’re the one who’s being condemned,’” she told NBC’s Meet the Press in reference to the attack that has killed nearly 300 people in less than two days.

Dozens of tanks and personnel carriers idled at several points near the border after Israel warned it could launch a ground offensive in addition to its massive air blitz.

Hamas responded to the ongoing bombardment by firing rockets the farthest yet into Israel, with one striking not far from Ashdod, Israel’s second-largest port, some 30 kilometers (18 miles) north of Gaza. It caused no casualties, medics said.

The Islamist movement accused Israel of “committing a holocaust as the whole world watches and doesn’t lift a finger to stop.”

“The Palestinian resistance reserves the right to hit back at this aggression with martyr operations,” spokesman Fawzi Barhum told reporters, referring to suicide bombings which Hamas hasn’t carried out against Israel since January 2005.

Britain and Russia joined the growing international chorus for a halt to the violence.

Pope Benedict XVI implored the international community to do “all it can to help the Israelis and Palestinians on this dead-end road… and not to give in to the perverse logic of confrontation and violence.”

But Israeli Defense Minster Ehud Barak vowed to “expand and deepen” the bombing blitz, unleashed in retaliation for persistent rocket fire by militant groups.

“If it’s necessary to deploy ground forces to defend our citizens, we will do so,” his spokesman quoted him as saying.

The cabinet gave the green light to call up 6,500 reserve soldiers, a senior official told reporters after the meeting.

Warplanes continued to pound the impoverished and overcrowded territory of 1.5 million people, where many streets were deserted and schools and shops stayed shut as hundreds of funerals were held.

Jets bombed a series of tunnels on Gaza’s border with Egypt — a lifeline for Hamas used for smuggling in goods and weapons into the enclave, which has been virtually sealed by Israel since the Islamists violently seized power in June 2007.

At least two people were killed in the bombing.

Dozens of Gazans tried to break through the border into Egypt following the strikes, but were stopped by Egyptian police firing into the air, said an Egyptian security official.

Businesses in the occupied West Bank, including annexed Arab east Jerusalem, observed a strike in protest at the onslaught that one Palestinian human rights group called “the bloodiest day in the history of the (Israeli) occupation.”

Since early Saturday, at least 300 people have been killed and more than 600 wounded, medics said.

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said the campaign was launched “in order to regain a normal life for the citizens in the south who have suffered for many years from incessant rocket, mortar and terror attacks.”

The Israeli bombardment has sparked widespread international concern.

In New York, the UN Security Council called for an “immediate halt to all violence” and urged all sides “to stop immediately all military activities.”

In Rome, the pope said that “the terrestrial homeland of Jesus cannot continue to be the witness of such bloodshed which is repeated ad infinitum.”

Egypt, which had brokered a six-month truce between Israel and Hamas that expired on December 19, said it was trying to negotiate a new ceasefire.

But a senior Israeli official told AFP that “we have our goals and our timetable and we don’t seek mediation.”

Israel’s main ally Washington has blamed Hamas “thugs” for provoking the offensive by firing rockets into the Jewish state from Gaza, and urged Israel to avoid causing civilian casualties.

The Israeli offensive sparked protests in the occupied West Bank, where one demonstrator was killed in clashes with police. More than 50,000 rallied in Egypt and hundreds in Dubai.

Israel unleashed “Operation Cast Lead” against Hamas in the middle of Saturday morning, with some 60 warplanes hitting more than 50 targets in just a few minutes.

By Sunday, some 230 targets had been hit, the military said.

Hamas has responded by firing more than 90 rockets and mortar rounds at Israel, killing one man and wounding a handful of other people.

Army chief Lieutenant General Gabi Ashkenazi told the cabinet on Sunday that half of Hamas’s rocket launch sites were destroyed in the initial wave of Israeli attacks.

The Israeli blitz came after days of spiraling violence since the expiry of the Gaza truce. It comes less than two months before snap parliamentary elections in Israel called for February 10.(AFP)

Nasrallah for Serial Uprisings in Arab and Muslim Worlds

Nasrallah for Serial Uprisings in Arab and Muslim Worlds

Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah on Monday urged Arab and Muslim peoples to launch “uprisings” in support of Gaza and urged President Michel Suleiman to work for holding an Arab Summit that aims at ending the Israeli aggression on Gaza.
Nasrallah, addressing a rally in south Beirut in support of Gaza, also predicted that Israel would fail in defeating Hamas.

He said an Israeli incursion into Gaza would be “confronted by resistance fighters and the Israelis would start sustaining casualties.”

Tens of thousands of Hizbullah supporters stood under pouring rain to protest Israel’s assault on Gaza.

The rally was by far the largest protest in the Arab world, where outrage over Israel’s air strikes has been strong since Israel first launched the assault Saturday.

The Israeli war in Gaza, according to Nasrallah, is “not against Hamas, but against the Palestinian people.”

He urged Suleiman to play a “central role” in calling for the holding of an Arab Summit Conference on Gaza, charging that some Arab leaders are trying to “block” it.

“President Suleiman enjoys a unanimous Lebanese call for ending the aggression. This allows him to call for holding the summit without provoking sensitivities,” Nasrallah noted.

Nasrallah also said Suleiman should “reflect solidarity with Gaza at the summit and should avoid siding with this regime or that.”

He said the United States “would not mind if an Islamist faction ruled an Arab state. What matters is the stand that this faction adopts on Israel and its readiness to succumb to America.”

He urged his followers to remain on alert in case needed to confront any possible Israeli attack.

Egypt Accuses Nasrallah of Declaring War, Vows to Confront

Egypt Accuses Nasrallah of Declaring War, Vows to Confront

Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Abul Gheit on Monday accused Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah of “declaring war on the Egyptian people.”

Abul Gheit, responding to Nasrallah’s address on Sunday without naming him, vowed that “the Egyptian people would confront this war.”

“Someone yesterday called on the Egyptian people to take to the streets and create an atmosphere of anarchy. In other words, they want an atmosphere of anarchy similar to the one they created in their own country,” Abul Gheit told a press conference in Ankara.

“This person (Nasrallah) also called on the Egyptian armed forces, but he is not aware of the situation,” Abul Gheit said after talks with his Turkish counterpart Ali Babacan.

“If you do not know, let me tell you that the Egyptian armed forces are tasked with defending Egypt. If need be, they will also protect Egypt against people like you,” he told Nasrallah.

Abul Gheit also underlined that the Rafah crossing point between Egypt and Gaza was open for dispatching humanitarian supplies and receiving wounded Palestinians.

In a televised address on Sunday, Nasrallah urged Egyptians to take to the streets “in millions” to force the government to open the Rafah crossing to Gaza, arguing that security forces could not take actions against such a large turnout.

“I am not calling for a coup in Egypt… but if you (the Egyptian leadership) do not open the Rafah crossing, if you do not help the Palestinian people, you will be considered accomplices in the massacre and the blockade,” added Nasrallah.(AFP-Naharnet)

It Takes a Long Time to Kill Thousands of Uncivilized Goyim (cattle)

Israel ready for Gaza offensive to last

weeks: minister

JERUSALEM (AFP) — Israel is ready to carry on with its deadly offensive against Hamas in the battered Gaza Strip for weeks, Deputy Defence Minister Matan Vilnai told public radio on Tuesday.

“We are ready for a prolonged conflict and for weeks of combat,” he said.

“Hamas still has around 100 rockets, but it is getting weaker by the day and we have to bring about a fundamental change to the security situation in the south of Israel.”

Infrastructure Minister Benjamin Ben-Eliezer told army radio: “We want a new reality to be created in the south of Israel, so that its residents can accompany their children to school and go to work without fearing rocket fire.

“Hamas must understand that it must stop firing rockets,” he said. “We want that the fire stop completely for years and we will continue this war to the very end.”

He warned however that “those who think that Hamas can be eradicated are mistaken.”

Israel unleashed its deadly bombardment of Hamas targets in Gaza on Saturday in retaliation for persistent rocket fire from the territory.

The blitz has killed at least 360 Palestinians and wounded 1,690, according to medics. At least 57 of the dead are civilians, according to the UN.

Gaza militants have fired more than 250 rockets into Israel since Saturday, killing four people — three civilians and one soldier — and wounding several dozen others, according to medics.

Shock, Awe and Lies: The Truth Behind the Israeli Attack on Gaza

Shock, Awe and Lies: The Truth Behind the Israeli Attack on Gaza

Chris Floyd

33gaza2.jpg

December 29, 2008

Here is a simple, stone cold fact. You cannot read or hear the truth about what is happening in Gaza from any corporate media in the United States. The only thing you will find there are regurgitations of Israeli spin, which are themselves only regurgitations of the kind of spin that American militarists have put on their own depredations — for centuries now. Up and down the American media and political establishments, you will find nothing but bleatings about Israel being “forced” to launch its vicious blunderbuss attacks against heavily populated Gaza because of the “recent spate of Hamas bombings” since the end of a six-month ceasefire.

This is of course a damnable and deliberate lie. Papers in Israel — in Israel, but not the United States — are reporting the truth: the murderous assault on Gaza was planned not only before the six-month ceasefire ended — it was planned before the cease-fire even took effect. Indeed, the cease-fire was part of the military plan to decimate the civilian areas of Gaza; it was a hoax, a scam, a deliberate feint to buy time for military preparations — precisely the same strategy followed by the Bush Regime (and its bipartisan Establishment supporters) in “going to the UN” to seek a “peaceful solution” to the “Iraqi crisis” — when the invasion was already in the works.

Haaretz reports on the Israel’s deceit in the latest outrage, in the aptly titled piece, “Disinformation, secrecy and lies: How the Gaza offensive came about”:

Long-term preparation, careful gathering of information, secret discussions, operational deception and the misleading of the public – all these stood behind the Israel Defense Forces “Cast Lead” operation against Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip, which began Saturday morning. he disinformation effort, according to defense officials, took Hamas by surprise and served to significantly increase the number of its casualties in the strike.

Sources in the defense establishment said Defense Minister Ehud Barak instructed the Israel Defense Forces to prepare for the operation over six months ago, even as Israel was beginning to negotiate a ceasefire agreement with Hamas. According to the sources, Barak maintained that although the lull would allow Hamas to prepare for a showdown with Israel, the Israeli army needed time to prepare, as well..


The story also notes that the recent racheting of tension was sparked, deliberately, by a heavy-handed Israeli incursion into Gaza:

The plan of action that was implemented in Operation Cast Lead remained only a blueprint until a month ago, when tensions soared after the IDF carried out an incursion into Gaza during the ceasefire to take out a tunnel which the army said was intended to facilitate an attack by Palestinian militants on IDF troops….

While Barak was working out the final details with the officers responsible for the operation, Livni went to Cairo to inform Egypt’s president, Hosni Mubarak, that Israel had decided to strike at Hamas. In parallel, Israel continued to send out disinformation in announcing it would open the crossings to the Gaza Strip and that Olmert would decide whether to launch the strike following three more deliberations on Sunday – one day after the actual order to launch the operation was issued.

“Hamas evacuated all its headquarter personnel after the cabinet meeting on Wednesday,” one defense official said, “but the organization sent its people back in when they heard that everything was put on hold until Sunday.”


Not only did this deception lead Hamas to send its officials back to work — it also meant that there was no general warning to the masses of civilians packed like sardines into Gaza’s hellish confines. It meant that civilian casualties would be maximized — especially when the initial assault was launched in the middle of the day, with thousands of schoolchildren out at their lesson.

As Glenn Greenwald notes, Israel’s massive bombing of civilian areas — even if couched in terms of “retaliation” for scattershot strikes on Israeli territory by a political faction — constitutes “a clear violation of the Geneva Conventions.” Greenwald also adroitly turns Barack Obama’s campaign kowtowing to Israeli militarism on its head:

[Obama on the campaign trail]: “The first job of any nation state is to protect its citizens. And so I can assure you that if — I don’t even care if I was a politician — if somebody was sending rockets into my house where my two daughters sleep at night, I’m going to do everything in my power to stop that. And I would expect Israelis to do the same thing.”


Can’t the exact same mentality be deployed to justify everything Hamas has done and is doing, to wit:  “if a foreign power were brutally occupying my country for four decades — or blockading my country and denying my children medical needs and nutrition and the ability even to exit — I’m going to do everything in my power to stop that.  And I would expect Palestinians to do the same thing”?  But the last thing that our political class ever extends is reciprocal, two-sided analysis to this dispute.


What is the ultimate context of this carnage? The fact that the Arab inhabitants of Palestine had their land taken away from them by force — not in some ancient, historic era, but within the lifetime of many thousands of Palestinians still living. I hold no brief for Hamas; like the Angry Arab, whose coverage of the conflict has been relentless and penetrating, I don’t care for any party based on religious extremism. But as Greenwald notes, every action taken by Hamas and other Palestinian resistance groups could be characterized as “retaliation” for the theft of their land, not to mention the war crime of collective punishment and genocidal blockades visited upon the Occupied Territories for years.

But there is not a single peep of this perspective from America’s ruling class and its media courtiers. Of course, it is a bit much to expect a nation which itself was built on land theft, repression and slaughter to see anything wrong or “disproportionate” in Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians. What else are you supposed to do when those dang heathen savages come around with their war parties and tomahawks, trying to get back the land that God Almighty has granted to good white folk?

Meanwhile, here’s what Israel’s “Manifest Destiny” looks like on the ground in Gaza. From the Maan News Agency (via the Angry Arab, as was the photo above):

Death shrouds the hallways of Gaza City’s Ash-Shifa medical compound Saturday, its smell creeping in from all corners. mputated bodies are strewn throughout hallways because morgues in the city can no longer accommodate the dead. In one corner a man stands with his seven year old son in a cardboard box because the hospital ran out of sheets to cover the dead with. This is how he will carry him home and bury him. Another man stands dazed, in shock after watching his son Mohammed killed during his graduation ceremony at the de facto police headquarters. The father of one of Mohammed’s classmates stood next to his son as he was decapitated. The man is still screaming.

In the packed hospital waiting room a mother sits silently staring into the distance; her son was pronounced dead shortly after she brought him in… Forty-year-old mother Nawal Al-Lad’a did not find the bodies of her two sons in the medical compound, so she left to look amid the rubble.

Husam Farajallah, a university student, was at the hospital collecting the body of his relative. He called what happened in Gaza a “black day” in the lives of all Palestinians, and wondered how the world could watch and do nothing.

Medics in Gaza confirmed that the majority of those killed in the day’s attacks were civilians, including men, women and children. Most were cut to pieces, making the job of doctors and medics difficult, and the task of giving bodies back to families painful and gruesome. The medics working in the field continue to dig up bodies from the densely populated urban areas of Gaza City.

The scenes remind many Palestinians of the images that came out of the Sabra and Shatila massacres from Beirut in 1982, when thousands of Palestinians were killed by the Lebanese Phalangist militia.

As the death toll climbs and no word on a halt to the attacks has come from Israel, Gazans fear for their lives and loved ones.

IAF uses new US-supplied smart bombs (bunker busters)

IAF uses new US-supplied smart bomb

The Israel Air Force used a new bunker-buster missile that it received recently from the United States in strikes against Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip on Saturday, The Jerusalem Post learned on Sunday.

Post’s Yaakov Katz analyzes the IDF’s next moves

The missile, called GBU-39, was developed in recent years by the US as a small-diameter bomb for low-cost, high-precision and low collateral damage strikes.

Israel received approval from Congress to purchase 1,000 units in September and defense officials said on Sunday that the first shipment had arrived earlier this month and was used successfully in penetrating underground Kassam launchers in the Gaza Strip during the heavy aerial bombardment of Hamas infrastructure on Saturday. It was also used in Sunday’s bombing of tunnels in Rafah.

The GPS-guided GBU-39 is said to be one of the most accurate bombs in the world. The 113-kg. bomb has the same penetration capabilities as a normal 900-kg. bomb, although it has only 22.7 kg. of explosives. At just 1.75 meters long, its small size increases the number of bombs an aircraft can carry and the number of targets it can attack in a sortie.

Tests conducted in the US have proven that the bomb is capable of penetrating at least 90 cm. of steel-reinforced concrete. The GBU-39 can be used in adverse weather conditions and has a standoff range of more than 110 km. due to pop-out wings.

Also Sunday, Military Intelligence’s Psychological Warfare Department broke into radio broadcasts in Gaza and warned Palestinian civilians not to cooperate with Hamas terrorist activity.

Palestinians reported that they received phone calls to their cellular phones and landlines from the IDF. The phone call, the Palestinians said, conveyed a recorded message ordering the immediate evacuation of homes that were next to Hamas infrastructure or being used by the terrorist organization.

On Sunday, head of the Gaza Coordination and Liaison Administration Col. Moshe Levy was interviewed by several Arab news outlets during which he stressed that Israel was not against the Palestinian public in Gaza but was operating against Hamas.

Defense officials said Sunday that Israel would, however, not hesitate to target the homes of civilians who protected Hamas terrorists throughout the operation.

“We will go after every Hamas operative, no matter where he is,” one official said. “We urge the Palestinians not to cooperate with terrorists.”
