American Jews and Israel: A divorce in the making?
By alan hart
In a piece on the news website Mondoweiss, Philip Weiss has speculated that the day is coming when American Jews will divorce Israel.
If it really happens, the president of the day will be free to use the leverage America has to cause or try to cause Israel to end its defiance of international law and denial of justice for Palestinians. And if an American president gave that lead, European governments would follow him or her.
According to Weiss an important “sociological trend” is underway.
American Jews, even mainstream ones indoctrinated to love Israel, are breaking more and more publicly with the Jewish state. The Netanyahu government is proving to be embarrassing to American Jews; they do not want to be associated with right-wing apartheid policies… The divorce that we have long predicted on this site is now on the horizon; and in years to come this separation will yield an even bigger reward: mainstream American Jews will declare themselves anti-Zionist.
This crisis will not end until American Jews declare Zionism is racism. And one day they will.
In support of his speculation, Weiss quoted Gary Rosenblat. He’s a hard-core supporter of Israel and the editor and publisher of The Jewish Week. In an article for it, and as summed up by Weiss, he revealed that Jewish leaders are saying that it’s getting impossible to sell Israel to young Jews.
American Jewish leaders confide that generating support for the Jewish state is becoming increasingly difficult these days – even within the Jewish community, and especially among younger people.
The hard fact is that Israel’s leadership is moving in a direction at odds with the next generation of Americans, including many Jews, who want to see greater efforts to resolve the Palestinian conflict and who put the onus for the impasse on Jerusalem. It is not only President Obama who feels that way… Whether or not it is fair, the strong perception today is that the Israeli government is moving further right, and intransigent, at a time when the rest of the world is fed up with the Israel-Palestinian impasse.
A related point made in Weiss’s article was that when the present generation of major Jewish funders passes, raising substantial dollars for Israel will be much harder.
Weiss concluded with this prediction. “This crisis will not end until American Jews declare Zionism is racism. And one day they will.”
Serious consideration of whether Weiss is guilty of wishful thinking and being naively optimistic or could be proved right by events to come requires the asking and answering of this question.
Why, really, have the overwhelming majority of the Jews of the world, American Jews especially, supported Israel (the Zionist not Jewish state) right or wrong and/or remained silent even when they were deeply troubled by its policies and actions?
It’s worth recalling for starters that prior to the Nazi holocaust, most Jews of the world did not support Zionism and many were opposed to it. Those who voiced their opposition believed the Zionist enterprise was morally wrong. They also believed it would lead to unending conflict. But most of all they feared that if Zionism was allowed by the major powers to have its way it would one day provoke anti-Semitism.
Though it was Britain that gave Zionism a spurious degree of legitimacy with the Balfour Declaration in 1917, if there had been no Nazi holocaust it is most likely that there would have been no Israel because without Adolf Hitler as its best recruiting sergeant Zionism would probably have failed to command enough financial and political support to impose its will on the Palestinians.
It was the 1967 war that dramatically changed how most Jews of the world thought about Israel and that was because they believed without question the big, fat lie Zionism told in the countdown to the war.
Also to be recalled is that from the creation of Israel mainly by Zionist terrorism and ethnic cleansing in 1948 until the Six Days War of 1967, most Jews of the world were not much interested in Israel. At an early point in its life, Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion was very concerned that not enough Jews were coming in to start a new life there and give Israel the manpower needed for territorial expansion. One consequence of Ben-Gurion’s concern was that Mossad agents posed as Arab terrorists and bombed Jews out of Iraq and into Israel.
It was the 1967 war that dramatically changed how most Jews of the world thought about Israel and that was because they believed without question the big, fat lie Zionism told in the countdown to the war.
The lie was that the Arabs were intending to attack and that Israel was in real danger of being annihilated.
The truth was that despite some stupid Arab rhetoric to the contrary, which played into Zionism’s hands, the Arabs were not intending to attack. It was a war of Israeli aggression, not self-defence.
For those readers who still believe that Israel’s Jews were in danger of being driven into the sea, I recommend Chapter 1 of Volume Three of my book which is titled “America Takes Sides, War With Nasser Act II and the Creation of Greater Israel”.
In this chapter, I quote a number of Israeli leaders who years after the events said on the record that they knew that the Arabs were not intending to start a war. Here are just five examples.
In an interview with Le Monde on 28 February 1968, Yitzhak Rabin, who was chief of staff in the 1967 war, said:
I do not believe that Nasser wanted war. The two divisions which he sent into Sinai on 14 May would not have been enough to unleash an offensive against Israel. He knew it and we knew it.
On 14 April 1971, a report in the Israeli newspaper Al-Hamishmar contained the following statement by Mordecai Bentov, a member of Israel’s wartime national government:
The entire story of the danger of extermination was invented in every detail and exaggerated a posteriori to justify the annexation of new Arab territory.
On 4 April 1972, General Bar-Lev, Rabin’s predecessor as chief of staff, was quoted in the Israeli newspaper Ma’ariv as follows:
We were not threatened with genocide on the eve of the Six Days War and we never thought of such a possibility.
In the same newspaper on the same day, General Ezer Weizman, who was chief of operations during the Six Days War, was quoted as saying:
There was never any danger of annihilation. This hypothesis has never been considered in any serious meeting.
In an unguarded public moment in 1982, Prime Minister Menachem Begin said this:
The Egyptian army concentrations did not prove that Nasser was really about to attack us. We decided to attack him.
But the vast majority of the Jews of the world (probably 99 per cent of them) believed Zionism’s pre-war propaganda. They were absolutely convinced that the Arabs were about to attack and that Israel’s existence was in real danger. In the absence of the truth, which was not on the mainstream media’s agenda, they were brainwashed by Zionist propaganda.
One result of Israel’s stunning military victory was that most Jews of the world were not only greatly relieved, they were proud like never before to be Jewish and campaigners for Israel. Some took Israel’s victory as an indication of divine intervention, proof that the Jews were indeed the “Chosen People” and evidence that God would be with Israel whatever it did.
And that was the beginning of the real love affair between most Jews everywhere and Israel.
Now to my answer to the question of why, really, the overwhelming majority of the Jews of the world, American Jews especially, have supported Israel right or wrong and/or remained silent even when they were deeply troubled by its policies and actions.
For starters, it has to be said that criticism of Israel can and does tear Jewish families apart. And that alone seems to be reason enough for some, or many, American and European Jews to remain silent.
[Jews] must open their closed minds to the truth of history as it relates to the making and sustaining of the conflict in and over Palestine that became Israel.
But there’s much more to it.
The root cause of American and European Jewish support for Israel right or wrong and/or silence on the matter of its defiance of international law and denial of justice for the Palestinians is the unspeakable fear that a second holocaust may at some point be inevitable.
This fear is the product of persecution on and off down the centuries which climaxed with the Nazi holocaust and Zionism’s propaganda to the effect that the world has always hated Jews and always will. Zionism’s message to the Jews of the world is in effect, “You will need Israel one day so don’t question whatever it does to keep itself secure.”
It is therefore not surprising that very many Jews of the world believe that in the event of another great turning against them, Israel will be their refuge of last resort, so, they tell themselves, say nothing and do nothing that could assist Israel’s enemies and put this insurance policy at risk.
Despite all of that I think it’s not impossible that Weiss could be right and that time and events will see American (and European) Jews breaking with Zionism and all its represents. But, in my view, it won’t happen as a consequence of more and more Jews becoming “embarrassed” by Israel’s policies and actions. Embarrassment is not a strong enough motivation to cause the Jews of the world (American and European Jews especially) to do what they must if they are to best protect their own interests.
What is it that they must do?
Short answer: they must open their closed minds to the truth of history as it relates to the making and sustaining of the conflict in and over Palestine that became Israel.
If they did they would discover that Israel’s existence has never, ever, been in danger from any combination of Arab military force and that it could have had peace with the Palestinians many years ago on terms which any rational government in Israel would have accepted with relief.
Israelis must be aware that the price of their misconduct is paid not only by them but also Jews throughout the world. (Yehoshafat Harkabi, Director of Israeli Military Intelligence)
In other words, exposure to the truth of history would prove to them that Zionism’s version of it – a version to which most Western politicians and the mainstream media are still attached – is, generally speaking, a pack of propaganda lies.
Perhaps even more, to the point is that exposure to the complete truth of history would make American and European Jews of today aware of the warnings that were voiced by Jewish leaders who opposed Zionism before the Nazi holocaust. As I indicated above, their main fear was that if Zionism was allowed by the major powers to have its way it would one day provoke anti-Semitism.
What it has been provoking for many years is a rising, global tide of anti-Israelism, but the danger for American and European Jews is that this could be transformed into anti-Semitism if American and European Jewish support for Israel right or wrong is interpreted as complicity (even if by default) in Zionism’s crimes.
The most explicit warning of this danger was delivered by Yehoshafat Harkabi, the longest serving director of Israeli military intelligence in his 1986 book, Israel’s Fateful Hour. In my book I quote him at length but here in one paragraph with my emphasis added is the essence of his warning.
Israel is the criterion according to which all Jews will tend to be judged. Israel as a Jewish state is an example of the Jewish character, which finds free and concentrated expression within it. Anti-Semitism has deep and historical roots. Nevertheless, any flaw in Israeli conduct, which initially is cited as anti-Israelism, is likely to be transformed into empirical proof of the validity of anti-Semitism. It would be a tragic irony if the Jewish state, which was intended to solve the problem of anti-Semitism, was to become a factor in the rise of anti-Semitism. Israelis must be aware that the price of their misconduct is paid not only by them but also Jews throughout the world.
If Harkabi was alive today (he died in 1994), and given that Israel is not going to change course and that its brutal oppression of the Palestinians will only get worse and worse, I think he might agree with me that unless the Jews of the world divorce themselves from Zionism, anti-Israelism will be transformed into anti-Semitism at some point in the future.
It’s that vision of the future that ought to motivate American, European and other Jews of the world to come to grips with the truth of history and the conclusion it invites – that Zionism is their real enemy.
The problem for some and perhaps many American, European and other Jews of the world is that divorcing Zionism would mean that they were saying, in effect, that they no longer had the need for the insurance policy of Israel as a refuge of last resort. And that would raise a perfectly valid question. How can they be certain they will be safe and secure in their American, European and other homelands if they do abandon the Zionism?
My answer is this.
After the Nazi holocaust, and because of it, the giant of anti-Semitism would have gone back to sleep, remained asleep and, in all probability, would have died in its sleep – If Zionism had not been allowed by the major powers, first Britain and then America, to have its way, as Balfour put it, “right or wrong”.
In that light, I say there is every reason to believe that the Jews of the Western world will remain safe and secure if they demonstrate by divorcing Zionism they are not complicit, even by default, in its crimes.
tomie jones-footnote More and more Jews are divorcing themselves from Zionist Israel not just in America but throughout the world. There is one, in particular, lives in Spain and is a self-confessed Zionist of the first order, he only vilifies the non-Jews, with abuse and vitriolic language. When recently challenged by myself about the fact that jews were coming out joining action groups for Palestine and against Zionist Israel.WISHING TO PROCLAIM THEIR SUPPORT OF THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE.Yet he ignores this fact completely, why does he not vilify these people as he does the non-Jewish supporters (like myself) of the cause to free Palestine.Since my challenge was sent not a word has been said about the Jewish supporters or the rest of us,.He chooses to ignore us, both Jew and gentile, ignorance is bliss but he shows himself for what he is, A coward.
I maybe being harsh saying that,it is quite possible that someone has had a word in his ear about his blog and the image it projects over his work colleagues and the company as a whole.There are those who if they knew would boycott both persons and company.
Why have you not mentioned his name and the company he works for, I hear you ask. Well, the company and his fellow workers are to the best of my knowledge, not radical zionist Israel supporters.So they should not suffer for the deeds of others.
another huge earthquake is set to hit the Costa del Sol .property prices plummet to a third of original price
incredible Mansion apartments have come up for sale at San Roque golf resort.
The properties – that measure nearly 400m² in total size each – are up for sale at less than a third of their original price.
It comes after rumours rocked the coast that another big quake similar to the one on Monday morning would cause considerably more destruction.
Tremors have continued to rumble along the coast following the 6.1 magnitude earthquake that centered 132km from Malaga in the Alboran Sea at 5.22am.
So far, more than 160 aftershocks have been recorded in Malaga since Monday’s quake, leading to expats along the coast to fear another big quake like the one in the city of Lorca, in Murcia in 2011.
The costa del sol, Marbella, Malaga, etc. was (if you believed the estate agents)in the boom times as regards selling property.Not now, though , why?well firstly the criminal element has increased drug barons, mafia groups moving in buying the expensive properties paying cash literally in used euro notes. drive by shootings of rival mobsters, the white slave trade in brothels. the criminal element is on the increase right down to street level muggings, pickpockets, sexual assault , stolen cars from all European countries are a common site.The effect on the property market was buoyant because both innocent buyers were buying as well as the mobsters were. Now those that have bought are finding that their next door neighbours are not what they seemed to be or what their estate agents told them they were.
They are trying to sell their properties and get out but cannot, word of mouth has got around and prospective buyers are running scared,well I mean to say would you wont the modern day version of al Capone, or scarface lensman-stein living next to you in your million euro mansion, as well as a wild animal reserve. You have the SPANISH VERSION OF THE WILD WEST!!You could say that areas have become no-go ghettos where the average tourist does not go for fear of being robbed, mugged or much worse.
last but not least something they do not tell you when your buying, earth tremors are not uncommon” Wow …. woke up in the middle of the small hours to feel the bed shaking and swaying … the earth definitely did move for me last night (THIS BEING THE 25 JAN)….. Sadly, it was just another earthquake” quote from a person living in the cost del sol.Maybe if you, re buying you should make sure the property is earthquake proof.
The house was moving like a cigarette paper,” said Ricardo Alvarez.
In Melilla, buildings were damaged and frightened residents poured onto the streets.
It is reportedly the fourth biggest earthquake to have ever hit Malaga.
so you see or should I SAY NOW YOU SEE IT (EARTHQUAKE ) NOW YOU DON,T.
Your lovely mansion is now a big pile of builder,s waste NO problem, have insurance? hmm act of god exclusion. Still I am sure your estate agent when selling you your dream house will point out all these pitfalls and their agents will of course be fully qualified?
Israel ‘harvesting Palestinians’ organs’
The Palestinian ambassador to the United Nations (UN) says the Tel Aviv regime is harvesting the organs of Palestinians killed in clashes with Israeli forces in the occupied territories.
Riyad Mansour said in a letter to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on Wednesday that the bodies of the Palestinians killed by Israeli forces are “returned with missing corneas and other organs, further confirming past reports about organ harvesting by the occupying power.”
“A medical examination conducted on bodies of Palestinians returned after they were killed by the occupying power found that they were missing organs,” Mansour wrote in the letter.
The Palestinian envoy further protested Israel’s “persistent aggression against the Palestinian people” over the past month and the regime’s “insistence on use of violent force and oppressive measures.”
The issue of organ theft by Israel was first brought to the fore in a report published by Sweden’s most highly-circulated daily Aftonbladet in 2009.
US daily The New York Times also said in an August 2014 report that transplant brokers in Israel have pocketed enormous sums of money. Based on the Timesanalysis of major organ trafficking cases since 2000, Israelis have played a ‘disproportionate role’ in organ trafficking.
The Palestinians whom Mansour was referring to were killed amid tensions in the occupied territories, which have dramatically escalated in recent weeks.
The Israeli regime’s imposition of restrictions in August on the entry of Palestinian worshipers to the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East al-Quds (Jerusalem) has become the lightning rod for the surge of recent confrontations.
According to the latest figures by the Palestinian Health Ministry, at least 74 Palestinians have lost their lives at the hands of Israeli forces since the beginning of October. At least 11 Israelis have also been killed during that period.
The bodies of the Palestinian victims are most often held in Israeli custody for long periods of time before they are returned to relatives.
tomie jones says -enough you Zionist Jewish bastards.killing palesItian men, women, and children, You steal the organs from the bodies for transplant and then only then do you return to their loved ones IF THEY ARE LUCKY. The unlucky ones do not even get that. I WANT TO WRITE MORE MUCH MORE BUT NOT NOW. I am too depressed and upset. I really do not know what to do.
I SAY THIS THOUGH IF THE WORLD GOES TO WAR. ISRAEL, AS THEY HAVE NUCLEAR WEAPONS, THEY WILL USE THEM.WE WILL HAVE ARMAGEDIN.OH, AND YOU SHOULD SHOVE THAT PIECE OF PLASTIC UP WHERE THE SUN DOES NOT SHINE YOU HARBINJER OF DEATH THAT YOU ALL ARE.
The following is a famous exchange Gustave Gilbert had with Hermann Göring from his book, the Nuremberg Trials:
Göring: Why, of course, the people don’t want war. Why would some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best that he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally, the common people don’t want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship.
Gilbert: There is one difference. In a democracy the people have some say in the matter through their elected representatives, and in the United States only Congress can declare wars.
Göring: Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.
Kintbury businessman denies running international gold scam
Jury due to be deliberating today (Tuesday)
A KINTBURY businessman has denied cheating customers in an international gold scam.
Howard Del Monte – formerly known as Nigel Goldman – used his High Street home as a base for his online operation called Bensons’ Emporium, Reading Crown Court heard.
But he claimed at least some of the gold, which included valuable South African krugerrands worth more than £11,000, simply went missing after village Post Office staff forgot to put stamps on the parcels.
One angry local customer turned up on Mr Del Monte’s doorstep, where a scuffle broke out after he was taunted for being “stupid” in falling for the scam, jurors were told.
That led to PC Claire Drewitt intervening – and to the start of a fraud investigation that led to the trial.
Nicholas Cooper, opening the prosecution case last Monday, said: “Two gentlemen, Lee Cubit and Leon Shepherd, went about purchasing gold coins in 2014.
“Mr Cubit saw an eBay seller called ‘bensonsemporium1517.’”
In March 5 last year, said Mr Cooper, Lee Cubit in Australia enquired about buying gold krugerrands.
He agreed to buy one for £813.30 and the following day asked if there were more available.
Jurors heard Mr Del Monte contacted Mr Cubit and told him his partner had recently inherited some coins and that they had a selection they could sell.
Mr Cooper added: “He was told: ‘Here are my bank details, send me £1,612.’
“You may already be getting there, members of the jury… the coins didn’t materialise.
“Time passed, correspondence was exchanged and a number of assurances were given by the defendant – but nothing was received.”
Around the same time, Mr Shepherd also visited the online Bensons’ Emporium and saw that the seller, who apparently had 5,000 positive reviews, was local to him.
He paid for, and received the coin he wanted, said Mr Cooper and, as a result, enquired about buying more.
Mr Cooper said: “The defendant wrote back saying he was the executor of a large estate with other gold coins to sell.
“But this time, it would be a private sale, not through eBay.
“The point was to avoid eBay fees – at least that’s what he [Mr Shepherd] was told.”
Mr Shepherd opted to buy 40 Elizabeth II sovereign gold coins and two South African krugerrands, together worth £9,250, and transferred the cash to Mr Del Monte’s Lloyds TSB account in Newbury.
Mr Cooper said: “Mr Shepherd was told he could collect his coins from the defendant after payment.
“It didn’t work like that and it seemed to Mr Shepherd he was being put off. Again a series of emails and correspondence was exchanged.”
Eventually Mr Shepherd called a mobile number he found in their correspondence and spoke to Mr Del Monte.
Mr Cooper said: “I foresee that Mr Shepherd is going to tell you that, during that call, he was told that there never were any coins and that anyone who believed in a family trust is just stupid.”
As a result, the jury heard, Mr Shepherd went to Mr Del Monte’s High Street home at 5.30pm and waited for him.
Mr Cooper said: “The defendant arrived by car but then drove away. Eventually, at almost 9pm, he approached Mr Shepherd, who tried to video record the conversation. There was a scuffle and the police were called by the defendant.”
PC Drewitt began investigating the affair and Mr Del Monte was arrested on suspicion of fraud and taken to Newbury police station where he answered “no comment” to police questions, jurors heard.
But Mr Cooper said that, in a subsequent police interview in May last year, Mr Del Monte offered an explanation, at least where Mr Cubit was concerned.
He added: “He said he had an agreement with staff at Kintbury Post Office.
“He would take parcels down there; they would put on the correct postage then contact him for payment.
“On this occasion they had been sent without stamps and got lost – he had acted properly and had done nothing dishonest. We say: ‘On the contrary.’”
The 57-year-old denies three counts of fraud and the jury was due to begin deliberating its verdict today (Tuesday).
Israelis – Not Muslims – Cheered in Jersey City on 9/11
By Glen Ford
November 28, 2015 “Information Clearing House” – “BAR” – The corporate media don’t like Donald Trump. They used to like him a lot; in fact, Big Business Media are responsible for making this minor multi-millionaire into a household name. But Trump is on their hit list, nowadays, because the Republican presidential candidate insists on telling his own lies, rather than sticking to the list of official lies parroted by corporate media every minute of every day.
Donald Trump told a really “HUGE” – as he would put it – lie when he claimed to have watched thousands of Muslims cheering in Jersey City, New Jersey, as the World Trade Center came down on 9/11. Every corporate news outlet in the country rushed to debunk Trump’s fictitious account. The Washington Post offered psychological theories for why Trump gets away with telling fantastic lies. The New York Times said there was no evidence that Jersey City Muslims cheered the destruction on 9/11. CNN said it never happened. And, they were right.
However, by making only a partial correction of Donald Trump’s prevarication, the corporate media were telling their own lie about what happened on 9/11. There was, in fact, celebration in Jersey City on that fateful morning, and the incident did, briefly, make a major news splash. But the people doing the cheering weren’t Muslims: they were five young Israelis in a white moving van, who were observed in Liberty Park ecstatically taking pictures of themselves framed against the smoking ruins of the Twin Towers. As ABC News reported, the five were later arrested at gunpoint near the New Jersey Giants football stadium. Most U.S. intelligence sources believed the men were Israeli spies, and that their “moving company” was an Israeli intelligence cover. They were detained for a while, and then deported.
“Who is the biggest liar?”
In the year before 9/11 scores of young Israelis posing as “art students” were arrested after penetrating U.S. Defense Department and other classified sites. Both stories made national news. The corporate media could not have avoided running across articles on the “cheering Israelis” when they set about debunking Donald Trump’s “cheering Muslims” account. But, not one of them dare to mention that, yes, some people were seen celebrating 9/11 at Liberty State Park in Jersey City.
I was in a different part of the park on 9/11 morning, alone except for two young Israelis with very expensive cameras, carrying phony New Jersey press credentials, who claimed to be Polish but spoke Hebrew to each other. The two young men were giddy with joy at the destruction that the three of us were observing across the Hudson River.
Later that day, I learned from local and national news outlets about the five Israelis who were dancing with delight about a mile upriver from me and the two other Israelis. Articles about Israelis celebrating 9/11 would have come up in any search to correct Donald Trump’s tall tale – but the corporate media kept that part of the story from the public. They censored their own correction of Donald Trump. So, who is the biggest liar? Trump, who lies to advance his own personal interests, or the U.S. corporate media, who lie to the people on behalf of the State of Israel, and Zionism.

Increasingly, on the social media, the better informed people are drawing analogies between Zionism and Nazis, between Hitler and Netanyahu, in what must be the biggest ongoing Godwin of all time. Also 43 Nazi genocide survivors and over 200 decendants have signed an open letter and taken an advert in the New York Times accusing Israel of genocide in Gaza. One Auschwitz survivor, Hajo Meyer, said “If we want to stay really human beings, we must get up and call the Zionists what they are: Nazi criminals” and that hate of the Jews by the Germans “was less deeply rooted than the hate of the Palestinians by the Israeli Jews” and “The brainwashing of the Jewish Israeli populations is going on for over sixty years. They cannot see a Palestinian as a human being”. This is deeply troubling, so before we go any further it is worth making a few very important points.
- Zionism and Judaism are utterly, completely seperate things. Very many Jews are not Zionists. Very many Jews hate and abhor what the Zionists are doing in their name. Just as many Germans hated Nazism.
- Criticising Zionism is not anti-Semitism. The Hasbara propagandists try all the time to make this false connection. Basically they are saying that if you criticise the actions of a political movement then you are a racist. Just one of their very many lies.
- Israel’s current actions have created a huge wave of anti-Semitism worldwide, with some people seeking revenge. This is very wrong and not very clever. Racism against Jews is abhorrent. However boycotting Israeli goods to bring economic pressure on their government is an excellent idea.
Now we have have got that clear we should look at the various areas where comparisons can be drawn. But first remember the scale, Israel has just 8 million people and is just 8,000 square miles. Nazi Germany at its height contained hundreds of millions of people and encompassed a great deal of Europe.
- Stealing land from other people. To the Nazis this was the policy of Lebensraum, creating a 1,000 year Reich on land to the East. As I have pointed out in an earlier article the Zionists have the concept of a greater Israel, this is realised by stealing land from the Palestinians. But they also steal from all Israel’s neighbours, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Egypt. So now the state of Israel contains huge tracts of land that belonged to other countries, and within Israel we have gone from most land being Palestinian in 1946 to nearly all the land being Jewish now. Theft on an immense scale. Many Zionists take the Book of Genesis seriously when it says: “To your descendants I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates”, aGreater Israel. We should be very worried about this. Some conspiracy theories think that ISIS is a Mossad creation to destroy national boundaries and governments, facilitating Zionist expansion.
- Racial purity and superiority. This is the German “Master Race” or “Herrenvolk” philosophy that saw all other races as inferior or sub-human. The idea that they were Supermen or Übermensch was deeply rooted in German culture. Zionists in turn have the deeply rooted concept of chosenness, that they have been chosen, for a purpose, to have a covenant with God. And that everyone else hasn’t. Zionism is fundamentally racist, its basic tenent is that Israel is a homeland for the Jews, not for any lesser race. Jewish people in Israel are educated and brought up to believe that Palestinians are second class human beings. Yet with the wonders of modern genetics we now know that Jews and Palestinians are pretty much the same people! Just divided by their religion.
- Ethnic cleansing and Eugenics. This was a core concept of Nazism, they sought to populate Europe with a racially pure master race. So they slaughtered 6 million Jews, 3 million Soviet POWs, 2 million Poles, and around quarter of a million each of Gypsies and disabled people.Starting in 1937 the Zionist Irgun terrorists had a policy of massacring Palestinians and they carried out many such acts. They stopped for WW2 and then between 1945 and 1948 they carried out a lot more. No wonder the neighbouring Arab states tried to put a stop to this when Israel was made independent in 1948. After winning this war the Israelis ethnically cleansed 700,000 Palestinians, mostly by clearing them off the land, but there were many massacres. Now they have forced most Palestinans into two small areas, Gaza and the West Bank, but they continue to nibble land from these and to run a continuous policy of brutal suppression. Over the last 14 years the Israelis have killed an average of one Palestinian child every four days. In 2013 it was revealed that the Israeli government was running a secret programme to inject birth control into black Jews from Ethiopia, vastly reducing their birth rate. Eugenics in the modern age. But the foundation of the state of Israel was based on Eugenic thinking.
- Abusing democracy. Hitler never won a majority. He became Chancellor of a coalition government after running a low level civil war.He then seized dictatorship power on the pretext of the Reichstag fire. In the last Israeli election Likud got only 23% of the vote. So Netanyau formed a coalition including The Jewish home Party who believe that Jews are divinely commanded to retain control over Israel and who are big promoters of the settler movement, which steals Palestinian land. Israel is hardly democratic, with the tail wagging the dog. But then there is the large scale gerrymandering. Of the state of Israel’s 8 million population 6 million are Jews and 1.6 million are called “Arabs”. But there are over 4 million Palestinians ethnically cleansed into the West Bank and Gaza with no vote in Israeli elections. So Israel is a very long way from being a representative democracy.
- Use of Concentration camps. “A place which a government uses to keep people who are either against that government or who it thinks are too dangerous to remain free. Sometimes these are called internment camps, where a large number of people are put in prison without a trial”. The USA used these to suppress the Native Indian tribes. The British used them in South Africa as a tool to win the Boer War. Then Hitler used them in Germany to take his opponents out of circulation, 3.5 million Germans spent time in one of these camps. The Germans also had death or extermination camps for the industrialised implementation of the Holocaust. There is no doubt that Gaza is a concentration camp (some might say that it is now a death camp), the biggest ever in history with 1.8 million inmates, it fits the definition perfectly. These people are deprived of their basic human rights, they cannot leave the place. All Hamas want is to restore these rights.
- Use of lies and propaganda. This is a subtle craft. It involves crafting everything you say in order to manipulate the thoughts and ideas of hundreds of millions of people, so that what they end up believing is not the truth. Under Dr. Joseph Goebbels and Germany’s Ministry of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda this was developed into a subtle and all pervasive art. Israel have learned from this and you really cannot believe a single word their Government or the IDF say. For instance they knew that shelling Gaza would cause a lot of civilian casualties, so they lied and said that Hamas was using human shields, thus transferring the blame for deaths to Hamas. In fact it is the IDF that has consistently used Human Shields for many years. Another time they broke a ceasefire to try and kill a Hamas leader, Mohammed Deif, at home, they destroyed his home, killing his wife and children (but not him), and they lied that it was Hamas that broke the ceasefire. The IDF repeatedly talk about the precision of their strikes. But look at the photographs of the destruction. The fact is that Israel doesn’t have the aircraft or the money to use F16s and JDAMs except for a relatively small number of targets. The vast majority of the attack is with old fashioned artillery, which isn’t a precision weapon, to flatten whole districts. And so it goes on, a barrage of lies, even Haaretz, an Israeli newspaper, has written about this. What makes it worse is that most of the World’s media report these lies as news. In the USA the Fox News channel further embroiders them so that tens of millions of Americans have an utterly false idea of what is happening in Israel, their heads are full of lies. To further compound matters there is Hasbara, volunteer Zionists all over the world, thousands of them. They use a provided script to distribute the Zionist lies all over the social media. In comparison Hamas has nothing. There are a few people inside Gaza Tweeting events, but sometimes they have no electrical power or the internet is cut off. So the truth hardly gets out.
- Collective punishment. Firstly it is important to note that this is illegal under the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949. Nazis did it a lot. For every German killed by a Pole 100 to 400 Poles were shot. In France they burned down the village of Maillé and killed 124 inhabitants, 48 of whom were children, in reprisal for resistance activity. The IDF, as we are seeing, acts in exactly the same way. In less volatile times they still do it. If a child is caught throwing stones they bulldoze the family home. Thousands of homes have been destroyed for this and similar reasons. IDF actually has a formal strategy for collective punishment, called the Dahiya Doctrine, which they follow. Deliberately killing children and medical workers, destroying water and electric power distribution, bombing places of work and hospitals. All this is planned and part of policy.
- Militarisation of the State. In Germany there was a huge limitation, imposed by the Versailles Treaty, on what equipment their military could have and how big their armed forces could be. Once Hitler got these out of the way he fashioned a society built round the military, from the Hitler Youth through to the grand military uniforms many people wore the idea was to invoke a warrior state. They turned an Olympic Games into a military ceremony. Today Israel is ranked as the most militarised nation in the world. There is no real need for this, they are very many times more powerful than all their neighbours put together. It is largely paid for by American taxpayers and donors. When you visit Israel soldiers are everywhere because nearly everyone is conscripted. And when they leave the military they remain in the reserves, in a high state of readiness. Militarisation is built into the everyday life of every Israeli in an all pervading manner that would be unthinkable anywhere else on earth. It is truly disturbing to see a society based on this, where the IDF has immense power over everyone’s lives.
There is far more, in fact there is easily a book or two in this. The article above contains many links that provide evidence and background reading. Please click through these if you want to build a broader picture for yourself. You can build your own ideas of how similar Nazism and Zionism are, but the facts above seem very compelling. Also remember that Zionism is not Judaisim and that anti-Semitism is always utterly unacceptable It is bad enough for our planet that Zionism is so shamefully racist against Palestinians. They seem to have no moral compass.
TOMIE JONES SAYS-CONSPIRACY THEORISTS ARE YET AGAIN UNDER ATTACK BY Israel zionists in general and in particular by Mossad who are encouraging their misguided supporters to verbally attack those who support and question the validity of these false flag attacks,even though theory is being proved fact , as with chem trails which Spain and others have admitted to .
chem trails are vapour trails of heavy metals and other toxic chemicals which are being sprayed at high altitude to control climate change, in the process the human race is being contaminated with deadly chemicals.The darker side of this process is the usage of chemicals which are deadly if used at high levels ,causing at least illness , vomiting ,deformity, and death to humans and animal life, mammals , fish , reptiles ,even insects.
The Zionists want to make it illegal to speak about any conspiracy theories. So by doing this they will be taking away your basic rights of freedom of speech,with their aim to create an orwellian society as depicted in 1984 and animal farm.Soon it will be time to discredit these people show them for what they are.
It is for your own good ,and they know best just like 1984.
more facts not theory .that they do not want you to know about
The entire ‘war on terror’ has been a lie – and these charts prove it
If its objective was to end terrorism, the “war on terror” has abjectly failed. Since it was launched in 2001, terror attacks – and the number of people killed by them – have sky-rocketed:
The above image comes from the Global Terrorism Index 2015, published by the Institute for Economics and Peace. The same index notes that 78% of all deaths from terrorism last year took place in just five countries: Iraq, Afghanistan, Nigeria, Pakistan and Syria.
Iraq takes first place in the index, with a shocking 9,929 terrorist fatalities in 2014 – the highest ever recorded in any country. The chart below (based on figures from the index) clearly shows the surge in terrorist attacks in Iraq starting soon after the 2003 invasion:
In second place is Afghanistan, which became the first target of the “war on terror” when Operation Enduring Freedom was launched a few weeks after 9/11. One of the aims of the operation was to stop Afghanistan from becoming a terrorist haven. Instead, the 14-year intervention has overseen an increase in terrorist incidents of more than 5,000%, from 30 in 2002 to 1591 in 2014:
With a year-on-year increase of more than 300% in terrorist fatalities, Nigeria comes third in the index. Together, Boko Haram and ISIL were responsible for just over half of all claimed global terrorism fatalities in 2014:
Pakistan has seen an increase in terror attacks of more than 4,000% since 2002. Mehdi Hasannotes that, in the 14 years before 9/11, there was just one suicide attack on Pakistani soil – in the 14 years since, there have been 486 suicide bombings, killing more than 6,000 people.
Syria’s civil war began in 2011, which is made clearly visible by the graph. What is not yet clear is whether – and how – the year of coalition air strikes will affect the numbers of terrorist incidents.
Of the five countries experiencing the most terrorism last year, “only Nigeria did not experience either US air strikes or a military occupation in that year,” notes journalist Paul Gottinger in his analysis of global terrorism data.
In some cases, such as Iraq, it is widely acknowledged that Western intervention led to a surge in terrorism; British intelligence and US government reports have admitted as much (even Tony Blair came close to letting it slip), and al-Qaeda strategist Abu Musab Al-Suri has celebrated the results:
The war in Iraq almost single-handedly rescued the entire Jihadi movement.
Decades of failed Western interventions have caused extraordinary suffering to the people of Iraq, perhaps killing as many as 2.9 million people. As Mehdi Hasan points out in the New Statesman: “If bombing ‘worked’, Iraq would have morphed into a Scandinavia-style utopia long ago.” Instead, the country is in chaos – breaking records for terrorist activity while ever more foreign fighters flood into the country day-by-day.
In other cases, like Syria, the connection is less clear. What is accepted, even by American intelligence agencies is that, after the deaths of hundreds of civilians and thousands of fighters from coalition bombs, Daesh (Isis) is certainly no weaker now than it was a year ago; in fact, its fighter ranks may have swelled from 20,000-31,500 to at least 80,000 in the past year.
The Global Terrorism Index has done a statistical analysis and found two factors to be most closely associated with terrorism:
These are the levels of political violence committed by the state, and the level of armed conflict within a country. The report finds that […] 88% of all terrorist attacks between 1989 and 2014 occurred in countries that were experiencing or involved in violent conflicts.
If there’s one thing the “war on terror” has excelled at, it is creating more war – and if there is a second, it is creating more terror.
On Thursday, David Cameron set out his ‘moral case’ for launching British airstrikes in Syria,claiming they will “make us safer”. But it is abundantly clear that the war on terror has not made us safer. If defeating terrorism is the aim, then we need to start fighting for creation, not destruction.
