- We are Israel. We are untouchable. No matter what we
do the international community will not act against us. Oh, there will
be talks at the United Nations but we know that the United States will
intervene on our behalf. There will be Arab League discussions but we
know that no state will take action against us. There will be mass protests
and demonstrations; there will be activists and advocates begging for peace;
there will be rallies and fundraisers to help the targets of our bombs.
And we know that nothing will make a difference because we are Jews -
we are victims of the Holocaust. We have suffered such that we have the
right to make the rest of the world pay (even though organised Zionism
officially declared war on Germany in 1933, long before Hitler's Final
Solution). Because we are victims.
- Yes, we know that peoples all over the world have suffered
worse crimes than ours, but they were not the Chosen People. We know that
over 22 million Russians were killed under Stalin, 15 million Chinese killed
by the Japanese, millions elsewhere in the world who suffer the same fate
in the bloodiest 20th century. We know that Zionism is an athiest Marxist
creation using Judaism as its weapon; that we were founded upon terrorism
and our leaders became Israel's prime ministers and Nobel Peace Prize winners;
that less than 10% of Jews worldwide supported the Zionist cause for decades
until WWII. We know that the crimes committed by Hitler equally affected
Communists, gypsies, the handicapped, and political prisoners.
- That does not matter - we are special. The rest of
the world will not touch us because they are terrified of the label "anti-Semite".
World leaders: terrified of this most glorious ad hominem even though
we are mostly not Semitic peoples. Jews of Israel, the Sephardim Jews,
were almost non existant when we arrived from Russia, Poland, Austria-Hungary
and elsewhere in the 20th century and demanded Arab land. They had spread
out and moved on. We did not come from Yemen, Ethiopia or Iraq, but who
cares? We are the victims and that is all that counts.
- Time and again we wonder at how far American gullibility
will take us. We push it to the limits on cable television and get away
with it repeatedly. We know that the majority of the world is aware we
blatantly lie when we express our "deepest regrets" because "terrorists"
were hiding in the villages we destroy. We even have the gall to pick
the precise same targets as a decade ago, ignoring the cries of outrage
from America and the West. We'll just repeat the mantra "a tragic
- Honestly, we, too, are rather surprised to see that America
patiently sits back and buys our words each time. We have trained our diplomats
well, not only in the art of deception to the media, but by using powerful
strong arm behind the scenes tactics to mold the views of US Congressmen
and women in our favour. We have worked on this for decades and it has
been perfected for the one place it counts: our bank America. We rely
upon those weapons; we need to create constant conflict so as to receive
a perpetual $13 billion annual aid package from the US, including unsecured
loans that we have never been, nor ever will be, required to pay back.
We are living a dream: what we want is given to us on a silver patter
because we are Jews, and we have the Holocaust.
- The above is only daring in that it is never voiced publicly
in the West. The world is watching as Israel incinerates the Lebanese,
next the Syrians and Palestinians, then Iran. Diplomats call for peace,
a cease -fire, and negotiations. They speak the language of non committance.
It takes a few brave men and women in leadership positions to dare to
speak the truth; losing that AIPAC support in government is the kiss of
death, and academics who dare write the facts know that their tenured careers
are over. Israel is in the position of dominating the US government to
an extent never before seen in history, creating a regime who will fully
fund a "new Middle East" which in reality means Eretz Israel
consisting of Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, northern Saudi Arabia
and even Cyprus by some accounts. There is nothing speculative about these
plans for hegemony - everything has been laid out, written down, and presented
- This war will not end with a cease-fire next week. This
war will not end with a security zone controlled by the UN. This war will
not end if Hezbollah and Hamas disappeared tomorrow. This war will not
end as long as leaders and diplomats continue to fear the trump card charge
of anti-Semitism by Israel.
- So, when hundreds of children are torn apart by uranium
tipped missiles provided courtesy of the US government, look in the mirror.
Have you dared to offend Israel? Have you risked? Ask yourself what
role you may have played in contributing to this global disaster. Nothing
will change until you do.
