Two Palestinian boys, murdered by the Israeli military

Two Palestinian boys, murdered by the Israeli military

Dead women, dead children, dead babies. Limbs missing, brains missing, guts spilled out on the floor. It’s impossible to put a positive spin on those kinds of images, unless you’re Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Two days ago, Bibi sought to explain why, in the space of a few hours, Israeli soldiers, under his orders, had massacred 63 people, including 17 children, in the Shuja’iya neighborhood to the east of Gaza City. He said:

“We have to protect ourselves. We try to target the rocketeers, we do. And all civilian casualties are not intended by us but actually intended by Hamas who want to pile up as many civilian dead as they can because somebody said they use telegenically dead Palestinians for the cause. They want the more dead the better.”

East Ukrainian rebels inspect the crash site of MH17

East Ukrainian rebels inspect the crash site of MH17

Is everyone enjoying the show? The ridiculously transparent attempt by the entire Western media and their political ‘elite’ masters to use the alleged shooting down of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 as part of their ‘asymmetric’ warfare against Russia and Vladimir Putin. Even the supposedly ‘leftist’ UK Guardian newspaper has been running headlines like World demands answers from Russia after Malaysia Airlines plane’s destruction over Ukraine and Hilary Clinton (wasn’t she fired?) wasted no time in declaring authoritatively that Russian rebels were responsible for the downing of the plane and that “Putin has gone too far”. Clinton’s statement clearly exposes her own and her former government’s complete lack of respect for due process, truth, and the extreme prejudice with which they both view the Russian Federation. It’s also clearly complete and utter BS because no one could possibly know who was responsible for the shooting down of Flight MH17 just a few hours after it fell out of the sky.

Then again, the US government never did let the facts get in the way of a good dose of propaganda, and to be fair, from the point of view of Clinton and her ilk, Putin has gone ‘too far’, but it has nothing to do with any Malaysian aircraft. Read More →

defending_IsraelWhile much of the public was being distracted by news reports of the score line in the Germany-Brazil World Cup game, another, admittedly less important, high-scoring ‘game’ was playing out in Israel/Palestine. While Brazil lost 7 to 1 to Germany, so far, Palestinians losses to Israel are running at 81-0, with no end to the carnage in sight.

A week ago I expressed my suspicions about the timing of the kidnapping and murder of the three Israelis teens. Since then, more details have come to light that confirm that the kidnapping was most likely a carefully orchestrated Israeli government propaganda campaign designed to destroy the Fatah/Hamas unity government, demomize the Palestinians as ‘terrorists’, and, as always, give the psychopaths in Tel Aviv another opportunity to blow Palestinian women and children to pieces.

Oops.

Oops.

I can’t really comment in any informed way on societies in the East, except to point to the Chinese slave workers who produce mountains of plastic crap for Western nations to use and then dump in the ground and oceans; the Middle East’s role as a bombing target, ‘terrorist’ recruiting ground and civil war factory for Western warmongers, and South East Asia and Africa as a block of new ‘nations’ born out of the ‘white man’s burden’ to civilize their people via brutal colonization and then grant them ‘independence’ in the form of never-ending debt to Western banks.

In the West on the other hand, where I live, I can say with confidence that our modern society, its political and social conventions, customs and morality, has past it’s expiry date and is well and truly moribund. If I were a political or social cartoonist, the image would be a giant rotting corpse plastered in thick make up and doused in cheap perfume with a greedy banker’s hand up its ass making it move and talk to fool the public into thinking that they actually has a future worth living in.

Leading the cast in this tragicomedy (heavy on the tragi) we find our psychopathic leaders and their media whores trying extra hard to convince us that everything is just fine. But that smell, that stench of lies and the screaming contradiction between what they say and what we can all see (if we look) is making it increasingly hard to believe them, and even our own wishful thinking.

When Israel attacks Palestinian schools and hospitals and businesses and orchards, and claims that it is “targeting terrorist infrastructure”, I believe them.

It seems clear that many Israelis view the simple fact of the existence of the Palestinian people as a dire threat to the Israeli ‘way of life’, and even to the very existence of Israel. In that sense, all Palestinians terrorise Israelis without ever lifting a finger.

If those damn Palestinians would just disappear somehow, the Zionist dream would finally become a reality. But the Palestinians won’t disappear, they won’t even die, they just sit there in their ghettos, a constant reminder of all of Jehovah’s broken promises and the failure of the experiment that is the modern state of Israel.

Of course, the rest of the world has a responsibility to not support the Israeli delusion, and should understand the underlying problem: that we are dealing with mental illness writ large across the Israeli state.

Indeed, the rest of the world should take action to protect the people of the Middle East (and the world), and the Israelis themselves, from the threat inherent in a nuclear-armed Middle Eastern nation made up of political leaders and a citizenry in the grip of such pathology.

Israelis need psychological help, pushing reality in their faces without addressing the underlying psychological issues just seems to exacerbate the problem.

What’s the psychiatric treatment for a ‘victim complex’, and can it be applied en masse?

When a people that have been dispossessed of their land, livelihoods and homes, periodically murdered and regularly terrorized, take action to resist and defend themselves, they are guilty of nothing but standing up for their human rights and their rights under international law.

BBC Arabic Photo Journalist, Jihad Masharawi, weeps as he holds his baby son who was murdered by the Israeli army today

Yesterday, Wed. 14th Nov. 2012 Israel launched the latest in a long line of “Operations” that stretch back over 60 years aimed at terrorizing the people of Palestine. By naming the attack ‘Operation ‘pillar of cloud” the Israeli military was unambiguous about its intent: to blow up as much of Gaza and as many Palestinians as they saw fit.

Why do Palestinians fire rockets into Israel? The vast majority of them, and I mean the VAST majority either miss their target or make a small hole in the ground far from their intended target. The rocket attacks appear to serve only as justification for the Israeli military to attack Gaza and murder Palestinians. So what’s the point?

The point is that the rocket attacks are the Palestinians ONLY way of protesting against the 60 year long occupation of their land responding to unprovoked Israeli attacks against and murder of Palestinian civilians. Think about that. The Palestinians have no option to appeal to the international community because no one listens. They have zero chance of the Western media applying pressure to halt Israeli aggression and redress Palestinian grievances because the Western media is unashamedly biased towards Israel.

The Palestinians have two choices: they can sit quietly by and allow the IDF to arbitrarily and summarily murder them, or they can fire primitive rockets at the closest targets inside Israel and hope that they make the Israeli government think twice. But even here the Palestinians have a problem:  the Israeli government welcomes the firing of Palestinian rockets into Israel, and they periodically provoke it. Read More →

Note: I wrote this article in June 2010 in response to the Israeli attack on the humanitarian aid ship the ‘Mavi Marmara’ and the murder of 9 of its passengers by IDF thugs. I had not published it on this blog, so here it is.

At approximately 4am on May 31st 2010, a group of vessels attempting to deliver humanitarian aid to Gaza were attacked by the Israeli navy in international waters off the coast of the occupied Palestinian territories. Nine civilians aboard the largest vessel, the Mavi Marmara, were shot dead by Israeli soldiers and dozens more were wounded. The Israeli government claimed it was exercising its right to self defence. Flotilla members, and much of the international community, saw it as an act of piracy and murder on the high seas that has exposed deep flaws in the Israeli mentality and further alienated it from the rest of the world.

The group of eight ships, known as the Gaza Freedom Flotilla, was a project of the Free Gaza Movement, a group of human rights activists from 37 countries. The ships carried over 700 people including journalists and dignitaries from the US to Malaysia and from Norway to South Africa. The stated goal of the Free Gaza Movement is to raise international awareness about “the prison-like closure of the Gaza Strip” and pressure the international community to “review its sanctions policy and end its support for continued Israeli occupation.” The movement’s board of advisors includes former and serving British, Irish and American politicians and distinguished academics, among others.

To fully understand the motivation of Gaza aid groups such as the Free Gaza movement, we must first take a brief look at the history of the occupied Palestinian territories and the state of Israel. Bear with me then as I try to condense, as objectively as possible, ninety years of history in a few short paragraphs. Read More →

For all those who may, despite Netanyahu’s compelling argument at the UN yesterday, feel themselves teetering on the brink of falling for the foul-smelling propaganda about Iran and its “nuclear threat” to the world, there are a few things I’d like you to consider.

In the last 6 years or so, there have been literally dozens of official reports and comments about Iran’s nuclear program, and virtually all of them have stated that there is no evidence that Iran is planning to develop a nuclear weapon. The International Atomic Energy Agency has repeatedly stated that there is no evidence that Iran has diverted uranium to a weapons program. In addition, the true power in Iran, the Ayatollah Khamenei, issued a Fatwa against nuclear weapons in 2005.

What Iran is doing is attempting to achieve a ‘nuclear capability’ like nuclear power plants and Medical reactors etc. The problem for Israel (or so Netanyahu claims on behalf of all Israelis), is that once Iran achieves this ‘nuclear capability’ there is little to stop them from using that capability to ultimately produce a nuclear weapon, if they choose to do so.

Well, what can I say. It was HI-LAIR-EE-OUS! The same tired old bullshit that a kindergartener could figure out, the “clash of civilizations” spiel, the encouragement to “be afraid, be VERY afraid”.

Here are a few choice quotes:

“Radical Islam wants to end the modern world”.

(For a bunch of CIA-funded mercenaries, that’s a pretty tall order).

Or how about this one:

“The future of the world is at stake. If you want to know what a nuclear armed Iran would be like, just imagine a nuclear armed al-qaeda.”

So eh, did I miss the news that ‘al-qaeda’ (the CIA’s database of mujahedin fighters) has now obtained a nation state of its own and successfully enriched enough uranium and acquired the parts to build a nuclear bomb? Wow, that afternoon nap I took was longer than I thought!

But my favorite part was Netanyahu’s cartoon bomb picture. This was a stroke of genius, after all, people love pictures, they convey the message so much better than boring old words and facts, and on that score, Bibi really needed a picture.

How did Netanyahu get hold of Iran’s bomb?

My sources have informed me that the diagram presented by Netanyahu was a modified version of an original, more accurate diagram. Here’s the original:

When this sucker blows, we’re all gonna be in deep doodoo. The bomb looks pretty nasty too.

Now I understand what Bibi is trying to do here, and I applaud him, but I can’t help think that he could have used an image from Iranian president Ahmadinejad’s speech at the UN one day previously. After all, it’s far more damning…

 

Now THAT’s a Bomb!

 

When I first saw Netanyahu’s diagram, I had a vague recollection of having seen something similar before. Then it hit me:

A Loony Toons representative’s speech to the UN a few years ago.

Being serious for a moment (I know it’s hard given Bibi’s farce); Bibi really shot himself in the foot with this one. Then again, that’s to be expected from a psychopath. Such deviant individuals generally end up over-extending themselves because they can’t fathom that there is a limit to the bullshit that ordinary people will believe.

A US flag burning at the US embassy in Jordan. One of many such demonstrations that have taken place across the Middle East on many occasions over the past 40 years.

Western governments and the Western media would love for the entire world to believe that the recent (and ongoing) attacks on US embassies in the Middle East, and the killing of the US ambassador and 3 CIA agents in Libya, are motivated solely by the publication of a poorly made ‘film’ that had been doctored to ‘insult’ Islam and Mohammed. This narrative pitches Muslims in general as simple-minded fanatical barbarians, ungrateful for all that Western governments have done for them, and attempts to convince the average Westerner that the only thing Muslims understand is force.
