- The Israeli Undermining Of American Democracy
- Hello. I am probably what you'd call one of the "silent
majority".. who listens and reads, but rarely gives any feedback even
on superb sites such as your own. It's probably not the best course of
action, as I'm sure constant feedback helps determine what's best to post
for your readers, but I'm of that school of thought that Mark Twain spoke
of when talking about fools and opening one's mouth. (at least when it
comes to contacting people a bit more prominent than average.. put me in
a forum or a chat room where it's all mostly meaningless and I'll not be
- Well tonight I decided I have had quite enough crap,
and decided to risk proving myself a fool by opening my mouth, so to speak.
I've seen several news items on your site related to people like Ron Paul,
and feel like this is a person (along with those of you who provide a viable
news alternative to the corporate media's tripe) who has real potential
to cut through the crap and help fix our rather twisted state of affairs.
As you might imagine, I was rather distressed to find out that people like
Ron Paul are targets to be removed from office, solely based on things
like opposing blanket support for Israel. The site http://www.jdl.o
rg/action/armchair/congress_israel.shtml provides a list of them.
- I decided to poke around a little bit on this site, and
found they have a listing ("Dear JDL:") of selected responses
to their content.. both Email and "snail-mail". I notice that
it's filled with a mixture of blind support and blind rage. That's fine,
I understand posting both.. the blind support to lend legitimacy to their
"cause", and the blind rage to show that they are victims and
should be supported against such tyranny. Well I decided to give them something
I doubt they'll quote.. or if they do, it'll be with heavy editing to suit
their purposes. I sincerely doubt this is very "newsworthy",
aside from any desire you might have to point out that people like Ron
Paul are targets.. but I figured you might get a chuckle from seeing my
Email to them. I don't claim to be the most politically-aware person you'll
ever encounter, but of what I do see, I call it like I see it. Your site
has been a great help in getting me to keep my eyes open and question everything
they feed us, so I figure it's the least I can do to repay you with a bit
- "Dear JDL"
- I know, of course, you don't have the stomach to print
anything that isn't blind hate-mail or blind agreement with your propaganda..
so you probably won't make this public on your website unless I were to
fill it with tons of obscenities, and I'm guessing you'd still edit out
the website link. I, however, shall make it public on several Internet
forums. Apparently from the link above, even "your" own people
can't stand the hijacking of the Jewish religion by Zionist pigs. I see
that your kind must even have sites that counter Neturei Karta and try
to proclaim it as "Palestinian propaganda" with some propaganda
of your own.
- I used to think that there was nothing in this world
that I loathed more than organized religion. The brainwashing, the killing
of "non-believers" in the name of said religions, etc. Now there's
something that surpasses that loathing: the use of organized religion as
a political weapon. You and your fellow Zionists wrongly wrap yourself
up in the cloak of religious righteousness and proceed to screw the world
senseless to further your own goals. It's obvious you don't really believe
in a higher power, or you would not seek to so wantonly destroy his/her/its
other creations in your fellow man, using that religion you pay lip service
to and try to hide behind.
- How is it that I, a "lowly" "Atheist"
(I have a rough equivalent to your "beliefs", but it's easier
for conversational purposes to just claim Atheism) have more overall respect
for other members of the human race than your entire (illegal, by "your"
own law, see link above) State can manage?
- You would probably try to accuse me of "anti-Semitism"
at some point for writing this Email.. but I must warn you that I am aware
that that term is incorrect. Dictionary.com's primary definition of a Semite
is: "A member of a group of Semitic-speaking peoples of the Near East
and northern Africa, including the Arabs, Arameans, Babylonians, Carthaginians,
Ethiopians, Hebrews, and Phoenicians." My policy is to have no issue
with anyone from any other location on the planet, UNLESS they portray
themselves to be superior to another solely based on where they live. Since
I do not see people jumping up and down proclaiming they are Semites and
the rest of us can kindly piss off, I have no problem with a Semite. "Anti-Jewish",
perhaps? Well, beyond my dislike of all organized religion for reasons
mentioned above, I don't really care what religion a person belongs to
as long as it has no impact on my life. "Anti-Zionist" would
just about cover it, however.. IF the distinction is made that Zionism
is a POLITICAL MOVEMENT hiding behind an organized religion. I have "political
movements" from time to time, and I can't say they're pleasant experiences.
- Now that I have all that off my chest and we have a few
clarifications in place, we'll get to the point of this Email. I notice
that you have a "hit list" of people in the American government
whom you pretend need removal on the sole basis of not supporting your
(illegal) State blindly, as you seem to think we all need to do. Sure,
you can throw your dirty money at removing people like Cynthia McKinney
and Ron Paul.. but as more and more people catch onto your manipulations,
we'll just keep finding new replacements for them.
- Eventually, like a poorly-worded Du(m)bya lie, something
will click that exposes your kind's (and by "your kind", I mean
Zionists.. in case you should try to manipulate this otherwise) treachery
to a large group of people. I don't envy your lot in life once that happens..
and I don't think there's any religion your political movement can hide
behind that will shelter you from the anger of millions of Americans realizing
that you've been using them shamelessly for your movement's own goals.
While admittedly not the most patriotic person in my section of the world,
I do know that not many people like being used.
- Please, keep going after "anti-Israel" members
of Congress. The more you act, the more chance you have to slip up and
expose your REAL motivations to the general population.
- -- A person who believes the integrity of the human race
is far more important than any petty political goal.
