A word of warning to the “Israel first” crowd in America, if you succeed in forcing us into a nuclear war to appease your fears about Iran, there will be hell to pay.
“There is no end of evidence that this kind of rage is bubbling to the surface all over America… The rage out there is not anti-Semitism. It may be anti-Zionism, it may be isolationism. It is a groundswell that needs to be addressed honestly… What should Jewish institutions do about it?
They should encourage that rage. They should begin an open discussion within the Jewish community of what Zionism has done to Jewish identity and American foreign policy.” – Philip Weiss http://www.philipweiss.org/mondoweiss/2008/02/portrait-of-a-h.html
Philip Weiss, over at “Mondoweiss,” is a very wise man. He sees the truth that other progressive/liberal Jewish writers try to hide. The American people are looking for someone to blame, because the government that they elected answers to a foreign power, instead of to the people. It is becoming obvious that the “Israel lobby” would have no power over our government, if not for the bulk of Jewish Americans supporting them. Israeli Zionists would be powerless to wage war against Arabs and start new wars with Iran without America’s secret Zionists standing behind them.
The obvious power of the Israel lobby to use American government to fight Israel’s wars, over the objections of the American people, is giving new life to “old canards.” The driving force behind the war on Iran is the Jewish and Christian-Zionist friends of Israel. The daily charges against Iran, coming from the Olmert government, along with the ever-present calls on the US to strike Israel’s enemy, ensure that any American paying attention will know who is to blame when the real conflagration begins. Growing public awareness of this fact seems to be validating the old “anti-Semitic” charges from the Protocols of Elders of Zion, about “Jews starting wars,” controlling governments and the press. Every punitive step taken to render collective punishment upon the Palestinians, every move made to incite war in Lebanon, or Syria, or Iran, deadens Americans’ hearts to a rapidly failing friendship.
Blind support for violent Zionist plans by normally sane Jewish Americans is causing a very powerful negative reaction to build among the American people. The strategy chosen by Jewish leaders (to fight this building reaction by attempts to control the national debate and to brand every critic of Israeli violence as “anti-Semitic”) will change anti-Zionism into outright anti-Semitism, once Israel’s supporters get their war (and the draft restarted) against Iran. When America’s sons and daughters start getting drafted out of our collapsing economy, to fight Israel’s war, who do you think will be held responsible? We could easily see circumstances change so drastically, so quickly here, that American Jews might find themselves in a very dark place, where most of them surely do not want to be.
It could not be true that Jewish leaders want their people to be considered as co-conspirators for the crimes of the Israeli government and their American neocon stooges, instead of being respected for their past great achievements. But this is what is happening, because of the downward-spiral that we are now trapped in, fighting the war against Islam. The more we hear warnings about “Islamo-fascism,” the more we see its mirror image in “Israeli fascism.” The great economic and political power accumulated and wielded unashamedly by Zionist Jewish leaders is poisoning the waters for all Jews.
Attempts to stifle public debate about Israel and Zionism, by undermining public discourse through Internet censorship, have revealed the very undemocratic nature of them both. Total domination of the alternative media, unlike the tightly-controlled mainstream media, is proving impossible. Efforts to censor content on the web are succeeding in leaving large holes in the evidence trails which prove charges by their omission, of ethnic cleansing in Palestine and other claims of war-mongering in general. The gaping holes they are leaving add-up to a concerted campaign of state censorship by the government of Israel and its minions, directed at the citizens of the United States, in the primarily Jewish-owned media.
In case you haven’t been paying attention to the ongoing debate about American aid to Israel, you really should listen up. The American people are dead set against attacking Iran for Israel’s sake. Even so, Bush, the Congress and the presidential candidates have all expressed support for backing Israel’s escalation of the war against Iran’s allies, promising that America’s troops will back them up, at a time and place of Israel’s choosing, to wage a (nuclear) war that will very likely cause America’s downfall. Listening to the ongoing internal debate, hearing all the invective and dark racist charges being leveled at the Jewish people because of growing popular beliefs, what will be the reaction of the disenfranchised masses?
Despite their best efforts to subvert democracy on the Internet, mountains of evidence and mirrored stashes of disappeared documents remain, waiting for the right search. In which case, even evidence from questionable sites, which replace censored damning reports, gain credibility in the public’s eyes. Though rabbis constantly herald the religious heritage of the Jewish people as “the light of the world,” to be spread into every nation, Judaism remains a dark secret to those outside the faith.
For all we know, all of the following quotations from the Talmud, as well as those quotes attributed to past Zionist leaders, are true.
Baba Mezia 114a-114b. Only Jews are men (“Only ye are designated men”). Also see Kerithoth 6b under the sub-head, “Oil of Anointing” and Berakoth 58a in which Gentile women are designated animals (“she-asses”).
Sepher ikkarim III c 25. “It is permitted to take the body and the life of a Gentile.”
Soferim 15, Rule 10. “Even the best of the [Gentiles] should be killed.”
Schene luchoth haberith, p. 250b. Although the non-Jew has the same body structure as the Jew, they compare with the Jew like a monkey to a human.
Rabbi Mendel Schneerson also believed that Jews are a superior Master Race.
“We have a case of the Jew…a totally different species.”
“The body of a Jewish person is of a totally different quality from the body of members of all other nations of the world. Bodies of the Gentiles are in vain. An even greater difference is in regard to the soul…A non-Jewish soul comes from three satanic spheres, while the Jewish soul stems from holiness.”
These statements appear to confirm that the following statement, attributed to Menachem Begin, is an accurate expression of the idea of Jewish supremacy, whether it was indeed uttered by Begin, or not.
“Our race is the Master Race. We are divine gods on this planet. We are as different from the inferior races as they are from insects. In fact, compared to our race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best. Other races are considered as human excrement. Our destiny is to rule over the inferior races. Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader with a rod of iron. The masses will lick our feet and serve us as our slaves.”
All of the above quotations confirm for many, that Ariel Sharon may have indeed barked-out the following words to Yitzhak Shamir:
“Don’t worry about American pressure on Israel. We the Jewish people control America, and the Americans know it.”
Americans have no way of knowing what Jewish leaders, or any leaders, say in secret chambers, but watching our leaders fight over who gets to pleasure Israel first makes it much easier to believe in such apparent evidence of sinister Zionist intentions and beliefs about our inferiority to them.
The fact remains that Jewish Americans have been instrumental in maintaining the two faces of Zionism – the violent deceptive face and the opposite PR image. It is only because of their unwavering support that America plays along with the false deceptions – that the “Holy Land” was “a land with no people for a people with no land,” that denying Israel the right to ethnically cleanse the Palestinians from their land is the same as denying Israel the “right to exist,” or that the Palestinians were “transferred voluntarily.”
The American-Jewish community has a choice to make, before America wades into a nuclear war on Israel’s behalf. Will you continue to support a war for your former homeland which will very likely bring about the destruction of your current homeland, or will you separate yourselves from the menace that Israeli Zionism has proven to be? For your own sakes, and for the cause of human morality, it is time to talk about doing the right thing.
