- The Bush administration like many before it would have
Americans believe that the problems in the Middle East are caused by Muslim
fundamentalism and terrorism. In fact a principal cause of friction in
that part of the world is another 'ism', namely Zionism. The latest
failures of what purports to be U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East
traces back to U.S. support for Zionism.
- Zionism is essentially Jewish nationalism maintained
by violence. It became serious about a century ago, accelerated with the
break-up of the Ottoman Empire and really got off the ground with the
Balfour Declaration which promised Zionists a 'homeland' in Palestine in
exchange for certain services to the British Empire. The famous declaration
contained the impossible condition (now universally forgotten) that the
Jewish homeland was not to be at the expense of the majority Arab
of Palestine. The actual Zionist state did not come into being until
by the United Nations at the end of World War II. Its subsequent hallmark
characteristics have been open defiance of many, many United Nations
of its racist policies and human rights abuses against the Palestinian
Arabs; eradication of Palestinian villages within Israel by bulldozer;
occupation of territory beyond its internationally mandated borders by
violence; and the planting of its citizens in occupied territory in
of international law. These actions would amply justify the label of 'rogue
state' if pursued by any other country.
- Sympathy for Jews because of their mistreatment at the
hands of the Nazis, the now well-known 'Holocaust', was the moral force
that opened the gates and still is used to excuse the violations mentioned
above. Jews, mostly from eastern Europe, flooded into Palestine although
they remained a minority and owned little of the land at the time. Alarmed
Palestinian Arabs protested and resisted but were overcome by the superior
armed forces of the Zionists who also engaged widely in what is now called
- Many Palestinians were driven out of their homes, farms
and businesses into refugee status. Their properties were seized without
compensation to this day by a variety of devious means, (e.g. seizure
of 'abandoned property') all of which come down to one unpleasant
- theft. These refugees, most of whom trace back their history in the land
thousands of years, are denied the right of return to their homes while
any Jew, however remote his connection with Palestine, is entitled to enter
Israel, usually with significant financial subsidies.
- All of this was accomplished under cover of a palisade
of lies that continue to this day - that the refugees had left voluntarily,
that the land was a desert before the Jews came back, that there were
few Palestinians, and many similar falsehoods. These propaganda stories
are still heard today in the west from Israeli supporters even though
shelved in Israel. Sadly, this was done with the support of the United
States and the uneasy acquiescence of some others. In other words, the
Zionist state was created on the back of a huge historic injustice to
Arabs while Americans and their government averted their gaze and backed
Israel 'right or wrong'. Interestingly, Zionism was not supported by many
'religious' Jews at the time of its founding. That, too, has changed over
- The shocking truth is that all of this is understood
by many of the people running our government, now and in the past.
they do not whisper the truth because, in the case of the non-Jews, they
covet their political jobs and the Israel lobby and Zionist dominated media
are powerful in this country. Also it is very difficult for any politician
to admit such a serious error of judgment. Egos and survival instincts
are large in that calling and the desire to hold onto public office
On a very personal basis long-held if false beliefs in the dogmas of
cannot be abandoned overnight. This is too painful to contemplate for our
'paragons of legislation'. Besides the domestic political pressure of
Zionist Jews and their supporters is far greater than that of the
victims. There's no downside to supporting fantic Zionists. There is for
- Furthermore, any criticism of Israel carries with it
the risk that the critic will be accused of the only universally recognized
sin in our times - the awful charge, if dishonest in this case, of
This reign of terror frightens away most from uttering the truth.
- In some cases, Christian religious fundamentalism is
a factor in non-Jewish attitudes. Fundamentalist American Christians in
the millions now constitute the blindest of Zionist true believers,
outnumbering by far the Jewish Zionists in America.
- Finally, the American public is traditionally ignorant
about foreign nations and little interested in events 'over there', as
often remarked by visitors to our country. This makes it easy to minipulate
public opinion about 'overseas' matters as witness the jingoisitc response
to the present 'war on terrorism' now being manipulated by the Israelis
to support their own brutal actions in Palestine.
- The non-Jewish politicians know that they would be
politically if they even hinted at the idea of reigning in the rogue state
of Israel. The politically dead bodies of the few Senators and Congressmen
who dared defy the Zionist lobby litter the ground as reminders. Political
animals notice these things even if the masses do not.
- The result is that successive U.S. administrations
to support Israel with an almost fanatic devotion accorded no other foreign
nation. Gigantic 'aid' is given, greater than the Marshall plan aid to
all of Europe after the end of World War II. The tiny state of Israel
the largest transfer of wealth from one country to another in the history
of mankind. It now totals over $100 billion with virtually no Congressional
oversight. This has resulted in a powerful Zionist Jewish military machine,
the real 'superpower' of the Middle East. The leaders of Israel are almost
all military people and they use these weapons brutally, as we are seeing
right now. The American public, still emotionally living in times of World
War II, has no concept of modern weapons and warfare.
- United Nations resolutions critical of Israeli action
over the years have been regularly blocked by the United States or are
opposed by the U.S. in the General Assembly in often ludicrous 120 to
2 or 3 votes, with the 2 or 3 being the U.S. and Israel, sometimes joined
by one of our puppets like the Marshall Islands. We are the laughing stock
of intelligent people all over the world for such things but it plays
well in New York and Hollywood, dear to the heart of all politicos! After
all, the rest of the world doesn,Äôt vote in or finance U.S.
elections - at least they're not suppose to.
- Our leaders often say that Israel is a 'democracy' and
our 'ally'. We've heard a lot of that recently. Indeed it has the
of democracy, but on examination it is a democracy only for Jews. Legal
discrimination of various kinds against non-Jews and Palestinian Arabs
in particular are a real part of the legal system of this 'democracy'.
How often have we heard about this in our media? These things are always
excused on grounds that they are needed for Israel's 'security' which
means the need to maintain a xenophobic, racist state. The 'security' of
the victims is not a factor. Can you imagine the outcry if Ireland or
excluded non-Catholics on grounds that this was needed to insure their
'security'? This leads one to ask whether there are special rules for Jews.
Many seem to think so.
- And the 'alliance' is strictly a one-way street. Israel
is of no practical value as an ally - in fact, in the Middle East we don't
dare use Israeli military bases and they can be a real headache, as seen
in the recent Gulf war. In the real world Israel has done many things
to U.S. interests, from the Pollard and other spying cases, to the transfer
of important U.S. military technology to Red China, to the murderous
on the U.S.S. Liberty during the 1967 war and the lies about that. And
many other examples. Some 'ally'. Criticism is suppresed by a charge (or,
more frequently, fear of the same) of 'anti-semitism'.
- How did the ridiculous attachment to this racist,
and alien regime come about? A major factor is still 'the Holocaust'.
Americans have been propagandized about this event for many years and even
today, 60 years after the events, we are inundated with 'commemorations',
government (taxpayer) funded 'museums' and other daily reminders in the
media about these events and the supposedly unique victim status of Jews.
None of this is spontaneous from the American people. It is a skillful
manipulation of public consciousness by people with an agenda, that is
the continued support of the State of Israel - come hell or high
- 'The Holocaust' has become for Jews and some others a
quasi-religious dogma and is the excuse for every Israeli outrage -
that would be rightly condemned if committed by any other people. We
gone this far yet, but in some European countries people who question any
aspect of the 'Holocaust' stories are jailed and fined whether or not their
criticisms are correct! Some Zionists have supported such rules for the
U.S. How often have you heard of this in our media?
- When President Harry Truman gave the green light for
Zionists to take over Palestine at the expense of its then constituted
majority, the Palestinian Arabs, his most knowledgable advisors on the
subject warned that it would lead to unending conflict in the area to the
long-term detriment of U.S. interests. This has come about . His decision
was based on cheap domestic political considerations about Jewish support
as he himself admitted. Can it be redeemed?
- Yes, but it will take politicians with more courage than
those now in power. Peace can only come if the Israeli Zionist juggernaught
is reigned in. This does not require that the state of Israel be 'driven
into the sea' as Zionist propaganda claims (a ridiculous charge under the
circumstance where it is the victims of Zionism who have been driven into
the sea - and refugee camps) but simply that it live within its borders
and treat all its inhabitants fairly. The present Zionist leadership
does not want to accept these things, but that can change and must change.
Any other course leads to catastrophe for everyone. The truth cannot be
