Response to Salman Abu Sitta's Hasbara or Za’bara – The House of Rothschild is NOT a Za’bara!

Zahir Ebrahim | Project Humanbeingsfirst.org

Friday, April 16, 2010

The article 'Hasbara or Za’bara' by Dr. Salman Abu Sitta has some very good rehearsal of facts.

However, I am troubled by this article. Not by what it says, which is surely only as true as any victim's provable claims. But by what it does not say.

Its significant omission. Same as by every other Palestinian scholar of repute. And they do of course always have reasonable arguments to explain the omission – none dare refute the fact of the omission, most only fall silent which is always a good argument in a monologue, but some creatively span the gamut of excludability from short of time to short of space.

So what remains?

What remains is that Zionism is a House of Rothschild Project. The House of Rothschild controls all the world's money supply, and as per the key lever of financial/political/legal/social/ controls: “give me control of a nation's money supply and I care not who makes its laws”, it also controls the world including all the world's instruments of power and their multitudinous incantations.

That aforementioned Mayer Amschel Rothschild's famous diction enables the real sovereign to exist behind the facade of democracy.

Which, as all sovereigns go, can make any law, violate any law, and create a puppetshow of laws and legalism in order to fool a people who are no longer imbued with kings and sovereigns but think that they are empowered to choose and govern their own lives.

Thus, Machiavelli was born through the Renaissance – when the ruling aristocracy of monarchs and priests lost power to plebeian norms with the onset of the new Age of Reason – and not earlier in time when kings and queens reigned as absolute monarchs on earth.

Thus, we get that delectable cake recipe wisely intoned by Dr. Salman Abu Sitta:

“How could you steal a whole cake and eat it? You first steal half a cake. With no deterrent, you steal the other half. You eat the whole cake under the ‘principle’ that the two halves must be “unified” (in your stomach).”

Such a cake recipe was not needed by the Roman Emperor to conquer Palestine. He simply did it as per the brazen terrorism of any absolute monarch – one which even Saint Augustine of Hippo acknowledged as the imperial prerogative of primacy and its geostrategic imperatives, a god given birthright of the sovereign to plunder and pillage at will:

“When the King asked him what he meant by infesting the sea, the pirate defiantly replied: 'the same as you do when you infest the whole world; but because I do it with a little ship I am called a robber, and because you do it with a great fleet, you are an emperor.' ” (The City of God against the Pagans, Page 148).

But in the 'democratic' modernity du jour, we need Machiavelli. Because the sovereign now cannot openly tell people what to do or demand obedience too overtly or at the barrel of a bayonet. So social engineering of consent was invented, and perfected Edward Bernays style.

The Hasbara is only a vulgar chapter in that book of Machiavelli. It is essential statecraft and is practiced ubiquitously. It is neither a singularity, nor should it be depicted as one. Because the genocide in Palestine is so stark, the efforts to socially engineer consent for it is also very stark, and consequently visible to us. But Machiavelli is a common purpose of statecraft in 'democratic' modernity, as is social engineering of consent.

That Machiavellian social engineering of consent for Zionistan draws its power, and two centuries worth of continuous planning and harvesting, from the House of Rothschild.

This article by Abu Sitta unfortunately does nothing to penetrate down into the guts of that Golem – the real primemover behind Zionistan – but remains focussed on its lieutenants and the mechanics of their genocidal machine. The War of Words betrays no comprehension of why this war of words is necessary, nor who is the prime-mover power behind it. It concludes with the wishful platitude like invariably all the rest of Palestinian prose and poetry:

“The world will be a better place, and justice will have a chance to prevail, when Hasbara is recognized as it really is: merely Za’bara. When truth shines, it expels the clouds of myths.”

And, the Ten Commandments too are not hidden from anyone either – haven't had much impact for 3000 years.

But as a Palestinian side of the true story of what has befallen them, it is a factual narrative, as is all of Dr. Salman Abu Sitta's enormous research. It is added to the tutorial below as yet another Palestinian side of the fate to be rehearsed to our progeny lest they forget:

From Genesis to Genocide in Palestine : The Golem Is Not Jewish!

And the following is an excerpt from a June 2008 Open Letter to Palestinian Intellectuals. It began as follows:

To: Palestinian Remembrance Authors, Architects, Documenters, Scholars and Intellectuals

From: Project Humanbeingsfirst.org

Date: June 08, 2008.

You have some very good websites. Thank you for the stellar documentation work. It is certainly useful, and in a just and moral world, these narratives and documentations of the Nakba would make good evidence in a fair court room. Among these stellar websites which appear to carry authentic accounts include: palestineremembered.com, plands.org, al-awda.org, badil.org, alnakba.org, and many more narratives which can be found on this links page. The most significant and substantive work done in documentation of the Nakba, in the humble view of Project Humanbeingsfirst, is by Dr. Salman Abu Sitta of Palestine Land Society. His new book “The Return Journey, The way to return Home” – A Guide to the Depopulated And Present Palestine Towns And Villages and Holy Sites – is a masterpiece of factual compilation that would be hard to challenge in any fair and moral court of law on any planet.

Except on Earth! In this world, and on this planet, where only power dictates and not its victims seeking redressal and justice, it is going to take a bit more than just documentation and narratives to get one's homes and lands back. As those given to even a modicum of reflection and empiricism well understand, among humanoids, power is only known to respect power – as “Hegemony is as old as mankind” – and justice in this system on such a vast national scale is only that which is administered by the victors to the vanquished.

Indeed, to begin with, it is gonna take a much deeper understanding of how sophisticatedly the Palestinian Nakba has been fueled, the intellectual capital that drives it, and why merely documenting stories and narratives is great for your antagonists, who, while you tell heart wrenching narratives, go on constructing political and structural faits accomplis that are subsequently irreversible. Without concomitant coddling of power-structures and playing with astute devilish efficacy on the 'Grand Chessboard', the ever spreading Der Judenstaadt is a fait accompli that has now made a Palestinian homeland less and less viable, except as “reservations”. Overtime, while these might be sugar-coated to look less like self-governing reservations, and more like segregated 'Black' minority neighborhoods that become part of Israel proper, a Jewish state in all of Palestine is now irreversible by virtue of practicality.

To make the point clear – who does not know how the Native American Indians' lands were settled in the previous New World, or how California was taken from Mexico? All the documentation in the world – and yet, faits accomplis are a powerful reality that may not be overcome or reversed without power and its incantations on one's side! With the passage of time, even power cannot reverse an existent reality on the ground without bloodshed – imagine a Mexican peasant today knocking on one's million dollar door in Sunnyvale California wanting his great grand-father's orchards back!

Time is on the side of the Zionists – give a hundred more years, or perhaps only twenty, even the Palestinian vacant lands documented by Salman Abu Sitta will have Zionist homes, farms, and state-parks with every Jew in the world planting his tree there! Try giving a California or Colorado state-park back to an American Indian were he to come calling with all the documentation in the world!

Read the rest of that open letter here if it's of interest to anyone.

It looks to me that there is no one to challenge the Rothschilds from among the Palestinians.

No one among them can apparently still grasp the import of why, oh why on earth was the Balfour Declaration issued to Lord Rothschild. A House which thrives on secrecy and anonymity, always prefers to stay behind the scenes as the hidden levers of the real nexus of world power, and by owning all the major newsmedia ensures their obscurity from public limelight to the extent that even the Forbes magazine cannot dare mention their name in its annual listing of the world's richest (and which instead lists the richest men in the world as the paltry billionaires Warren Buffet and Bill Gates) – and yet, in this one sole instance, the House of Rothschild accepted to be in the public limelight!

The House of Rothschild de facto own Zionistan! They are also playing Israel, to my political reading, as a Hegelian Dialectic to eventually create a “Zion that will light up all the world”.

Zion is primarily an idea, not a place. It can be mapped to any place. The present thrust does appear to situate it in a New Roman Jerusalem. But that's an effect of Zion, not the cause.

Understanding Hegelian Dialectic as the primary instrument of atheistic hegemony is essential to comprehending the world we live in and how Zionism to Islamofascism by way of Communism, Nazism, Fascism, and nation-states replacing the old world order at exactly the same time as the Balfour Declaration, all came about in the first place.

Zion's intellectual appeal is immensely motivating for the intellectual misanthropes – to raise a new 'cleansed' phoenix of humanity from the ashes of its corrupted-overpopulated misery, a Noah's flood – and far transcends the handful of overt Zionist criminals in Israel who are merely the foot soldiers.

Zion is the real genesis primemover behind world government and all the abhorrence of population reduction to be visited upon mankind therein. Palestine is the unfortunate canary in the coal mine.

The notion of “Zion” as the last bastion of humanity, of civilization, of secular humanism, is even being vicariously projected throughout the media and entertainment. Witness it even in the iconoclastic movie 'The Matrix' and the scenes of orgy in the Temple joined in celebration in parts 2 and 3.

It is logical for a plaintiff to directly indict the real masterminds behind the crimes visited upon his or her peoples.

Those masterminds still exist today and constitute the most formidable Golem known to mankind. Zionism is but one of its expressions. There is no mosquito which can magically go up its nose to bring down the new Nimrod.

It's gonna take collective 'Mens et Manus' – creative full spectrum 'Mind and Hand' engineering – to bring it down. Just like it has taken 'Mens et Manus' to construct it.

Not platitudes!

Thank you.

Zahir's Response to 'Ethnic Cleansing by any other name' – History's Actors and Machiavelli

Zahir's Response to Yousef Munayyer's 'Ethnic Cleansing by any other name' – History's Actors and Machiavelli

April 15th, 2010

Mr. Sami Jamil Jadallah commented to the article:

What I do not understand is the shameful reaction of the Palestinian government and leadership to such decision. We all know the PLO/PA/Fatah all have a contract to manage the Jewish Occupation for Israel,”

A Palestinian in Diaspora calling the House of Negroe for what it is. A good first step of courage. We all know what we all know – bringing it to the lips publicly is nevertheless a baby-step of courage. Thank you.

Let's have Palestinians on Ground Zero do the same – the people who actually matter in this on-going conquest as the grotesque map in the article above accurately betrays – and unfortunately, they won't last until the morrow at the hands of the House Negroes serving the occupation.

Map of  Occupation Palestinian Lands 1946-2008 PTT

however Israel has been committing daily violations of the contract and the Palestinian leadership that signed those contracts simply does nothing about it, other than condemn such actions.” -- Sami Jamil Jadallah

Cleaning the House of Negroe will take engineering, of 'mens et manus', of the same order as the construction of Der Judenstatd.

Power only respects power, not platitudes, not morality, and certainly not the anguish nor the genocide of a people.

Overcoming the Palestinian House of Negroe with 'Mens et Manus' is a sine qua non [for] even beginning to wage an effective struggle whose landscape no longer looks like the one depicted in the map above:

http://print-humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2010/04/palestinian-house-of-negroe-postscript.html

Otherwise, we, the Palestinians as well as the friends of Palestine, daily rehearse the Zionists' newest atrocity with the eloquence of a narrator on stage while the “history's actors” have already moved on ex post facto to create a new reality on the ground which subsequently becomes irreversible:

'We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.' — Senior Bush Advisor, The New York Times, October 17, 2004 [ http://tinyurl.com/machiavellian ]

The counter to “history's actors” is not more narratives [of Israel's latest atrocity] – but the courage of 'mens et manus' to clean house. The baby step towards it is surely to call a spade a spade. So thanks Sami.

But beyond that, beyond calling a spade a spade, I do not know the HOW; just what medicine is required.

If I knew the HOW, like where to get it or how to engineer it myself, I would be doing the same in Pakistan – and giving it to the occupied people of Palestine as well as the United States for free.

And that therefore, is the collective task before us – 'mens et manus'.

Thank you.

The Enduring Power of Machiavellian Political Science By Zahir Ebrahim

Convince People of Absurdities and get them Acquiescing to Atrocities: The Enduring Power of Machiavellian Political Science

Zahir Ebrahim | Project Humanbeingsfirst.org

Wednesday, April 07, 2010

Another case study of the brilliance of Machiavellian Political Science

Once the hectoring hegemons have created a core-lie and got people to believe or accept it, namely, that 'war on terror' is real and “our war”, then many truths within the core-lie can be fabricated, and also are created due to their own natural dynamics with proper black-ops channeling to mobilize insurgency and then officially fighting it as “counter-insurgency”. A cook-book recipe for fabricating “revolutionary times”, for indeed, “what is inconceivable in normal times is possible in revolutionary times”! A self-sustaining system dynamics comes into existence which is closely managed and continually harvested to sustain “imperial mobilization”.

These dynamics are the puppetshows of harvest that Rafia Zakaria is commenting on in her DAWN article of April 07, 2010: “Reinventing the Taliban”, while she is strategically silent on the core lie itself:

Yet to view the controversy as an isolated case connected only to the veracity of the events depicted in the video would be to miss the trajectory of the transformation being planned for the Taliban by the political and military leadership of the country. With the completion of the Pakistan military’s Rah-i-Nijat offensive in Swat, and the near culmination of operations in North Waziristan, the endgame of a long and bloody counter-insurgency operation is now visible.”

Rafia Zakaria is obviously quite [un]familiar with the vulgar propagandists' crucial tool in their vast arsenal of behavior modification tool-chest:

'The greatest triumphs of propaganda have been accomplished, not by doing something, but by refraining from doing. Great is truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth. By simply not mentioning certain subjects, by lowering what Mr. Churchill calls and “iron curtain” between the masses and such facts or arguments as the local political bosses regard as undesirable, totalitarian propagandists have influenced opinion much more effectively than they could have done by the most eloquent denunciations, the most compelling of logical rebuttals.' --- Aldous Huxley in the (circa 1946) Preface to his 1931 novel Brave New World

So, I ask Rafia Zakaria to refute the core-lie as unraveled by this scribe in the following letter to editor ( http://tinyurl.com/native-informants ) using her most compelling of logical rebuttals if she believes my deconstruction to be false. Or, explain her silence on the core-lie. Because, I do believe, vulgar propagandist she is not!

But I will take a bet that contrary to my belief, she won't because she is, perhaps inadvertently, part of the same con-game of introducing “beneficial cognitive diversity”, as are all the rest of the native-informants and house negroes of Pakistan whose new crowned queen of hearts appears to be this Samar Minallah.

Convince people of absurdities and get them acquiescing to atrocities – and here we have them turning a blind eye to the greatest atrocity of them all: “the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole”, from which “all the evil that follows” is therefore on the account of those who “goosestep the Herrenvolk across international frontiers” with the show of first-aggression by the “invasion of its armed forces, with or without a declaration of war, of the territory of another State”.

Any law professor who does not know their Nuremberg – well, perhaps it is only the same old 'likkha-parrha jahils' of modernity coming out of America's top IVYs and becoming the 'Epsilon Semi-moron' to 'Alpha' administrators in the class hierarchy of the Brave New World of Atlas Shrugged.

From Huxley to Orwell to Russell to Strauss to his mistress Ayn Rand, all have not been merely prescient, but rather have explained the actual blueprint of the future reality of totalitarian scientific dictatorships where commonsense is replaced by zerosense, and moralsense by secular-humanism!

Thus, one may repeatedly rehearse the deconstruction of evolving puppetshows and burlesque adventures of Alice in Wonderland, as does this scribe, over and over and over again, but the history's actors have already moved on ex post facto to create the new reality for Alice. Each time incrementally inching the world closer and closer to the overarching endgame of central totalitarian dictatorship in a world government, while we are merely left to just study what they atrociously did in the previous puppetshow:

'We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality -- judiciously, as you will -- we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.' --- Senior Bush Advisor, The New York Times, October 17, 2004

Such is the power of Machiavellian political science!

The Enduring Power of Machiavellian Political Science! By Zahir Ebrahim April 07, 2010

Response to Antoine Raffoul – What is the Iron Wall?

Response to Antoine Raffoul – What is the Iron Wall?

Zahir Ebrahim | Project Humanbeingsfirst.org

April 10, 2010

Response to Antoine Raffoul's missive 'The Persistence of a Palestinian Family'

Hello:

1948 LEST WE FORGET is an excellent website, and its conversational historical narrative with pertinent quotations is easy to read for those unfamiliar with the theft of Palestine, as is of course your missive above. Thank you for sharing the idea of “Persistence”, and your personal family story. It is both heartening, and empowering.

I am at a loss to understand something however, and I hope you would address it. I noticed an omission of emphasis on LEST WE FORGET, and therefore, a complete mis-diagnosis of the “invisible” force which is the first-cause prime-mover of the dispossession of the Palestinians.

While LEST WE FORGET accurately narrates the overt history of the theft of Palestine, it does not address its core prime-mover (unless I missed it). A force which is so immense, and so ubiquitous, that even the Balfour Declaration was issued in its name. A force so old that it created Reform Judaism in 1828 which set the stage for Zionism 70 years before Theodor Herzl. A force so potent that it today controls all the private central banks of G-7 nations, and of course only coincidentally controls them from the same location as the first Declaration of Der Judenstatd in 1897. And a force so diabolical that it has funded, inter alia, the new Israeli Supreme Court to administer 'chosen people's Justice in Zion and its outer appendages – when that transpires.

Yet, the only mention of the name “Rothschild”, and only in its limited historical context, appears as follows :

It all started in a small way as the first Zionist settlement in Palestine was founded with the financial help of Edmond James de Rothschild (1845-1934), a French financier who assisted a small group of the Russian Bilu Jewish Society to immigrate to Palestine in 1882. This Philanthropist sponsored a few more tiny settlements at the time such as Gai Oni, Roch Pina, Zichron-Ya’acov and Rishon Letzion with settlers from around Eastern Europe.” — http://www.1948.org.uk/the-zionist-project

And

Before the dust had settled on Allenby’s advances into Palestine, and on the 2nd of November 1917, the British Government published what has been notoriously known ever since as the 'Balfour Declaration'. This took the form of a letter from Arthur J Balfour (1848-1930), a Conservative politician and the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, addressed to Lord L Walter Rothschild (1868-1937) a British banker and member of the wealthy Rothschild financial dynasty. It read: …” — http://www.1948.org.uk/preparing-the-ground

And this, despite almost appreciating the momentous significance of the ambiance of the Declaration:

'This Declaration may be considered the most extraordinary document of any government. What makes it extraordinary is the fact that, in the words of Arthur Koestler (Jewish novelist 1905 – 1983), “one nation solemnly promised to a second nation the country of a third”. Even more extraordinary is the fact that this third country (Palestine) was still part of the empire of a fourth (Turkey). Britain had no business offering the nation of one people to the people of many nations.' — Ibid.

And that's it!!! No other mention of Rothschild.

Yet much emphasis is given to the visible 'errand boys' who did a lot of the spade-work no differently than the lower echelon of the US State Department might do for the American President in any American International mission for instance:

"This Declaration came about after extensive lobbying from the Zionist leadership whose spokesman and tireless lobbyist Chaim Weizmann never missed an opportunity to prepare the grounds to secure this Declaration. For instance, in one letter he wrote to a friend in December 1914, he said:

I saw Balfour on Saturday [mid December 1914] and the interview lasted one and a half hours. Balfour remembered everything we discussed 8 years ago [1906] and I gave him a brief summary of what has happened over these years…He listened for a long time and was very moved – I assure you, to tears – and he took me by the hand and said that I had illuminated for him the road followed by a great suffering nation [the Jewish nation], and expressed his opinion that the question of Palestine would remain insoluble…until there was a normal Jewish community in Palestine. He asked me whether I wanted anything practical at present. I said no, [but that] I would like to call on him again…when the roar of the guns had stopped [meaning, WW1]. He saw me out into the street, holding my hand in silence, and bidding me farewell said warmly:

'Mind you come again to see me, I am deeply moved and interested, it is not a dream, it is a great cause and I understand it'”." — Ibid.

And I have to ask this again and again, but receive no response, almost as if the question itself is inconvenient, almost like a nuisance, why does this fellow keep bringing it up: are Palestinians fundamentally unable to perceive that Jabotinsky's “protection of a force independent of the local population – an iron wall which the native population cannot break through” is not fundamentally ‘an iron wall of bayonets and Jewish armed garrisons’ as is noted on LEST WE FORGET, although that is surely among its many manifestations, but rather, the prime-mover force which is “independent of the local population”?

What is that prime-mover which is independent of the the native population and which the natives consequently cannot breach? What is the prime-mover which can orchestrate entire world-wars to achieve any end? Which can then preside in Peace Processes which invariably follow to submit their demands to the side they help win the world war?

That un-breachable Iron-wall is surely not the guns and bayonets!

It appears so un-breachable that most Palestinians can't even see it!!

This question is further formulated in my Response to Ismail Zayid: Breaching the Iron Wall.

I hope you can address this omission. Do you disagree with it – then refute it. If you are unfamiliar with this idea that Zionistan is a Rothschild family mission as the Khazar 'king of the Jews', then that's an avenue for research.

In general, I look forward to a deeper examination of the “Protecting Power” by Palestinians themselves – the power which has lowered that un-breachable but very real “iron wall” around their homes, their lives, their memories, and which is the first-cause of their dispossession and their suffering. A deeper examination which can automatically lead to a refocus of narratives, of politics, of demands, of quests, so that, ultimately, the suffering and dispossession can actually end in a fate other than the ones meted to the indigenous peoples of the Americas.

Today, apart from stories and narratives, the Palestinians have nothing that can scare the hectoring hegemons. I earnestly believe that going in that direction, a beleaguered people potentially acquire a weapon which if wielded astutely and with full knowledge of political science, can be game changing.

Thanks.

Response to Ismail Zayid – Breaching the Iron Wall

Response to Ismail Zayid – Breaching the Iron Wall

Zahir Ebrahim | Project Humanbeingsfirst.org

April 8, 2010

Dear Dr. Ismail Zayid,

I just read your missive “My Personal Story of Dispossession and Suffering” on Palestinethinktank.com.

I am unable to express sympathy in words which can possibly do any justice to the scale of calamity here – a scale so momentous that “whose parallel may only be the one of Sinai when something was revealed to mankind.”

Therefore, I would humbly like to express something far more effective here: a hint to the way forward for the dispossessed which could potentially end their dispossession and the suffering of their kith and kin on ground zero!

In another one of your missives: “Zionist Designs on Lebanon” (shunpiking magazine), you clearly demonstrated your command of pertinent history of the conquest of Palestine when you noted:

“At the Versailles Peace Conference, in Paris, in 1919, the World Zionist Organisation submitted its official plan for the creation of a Jewish state in Palestine. The submitted map included the entire area of Palestine, the Southern part of Lebanon to the Litani River, the Syrian Golan Heights and the East Bank of the Jordan River, to the railway line. This design explains clearly the continuing expansionist Zionist programme…”

So you must also be aware in whose palace in Paris the Versailles Peace Conference was held and the Treaty signed? And to which family name Balfour Declaration was addressed to?

Therefore, is it logical to presume that the World Zionist Organisation represented their very interests when it submitted its official plan for the creation of a Jewish state in Palestine?

That's the logical conclusion the text of the Balfour Declaration itself suggests for those not un-attuned to the power-plays of the oligarchs on the grand chessboard:

'November 2nd, 1917

Dear Lord Rothschild,

I have much pleasure in conveying to you, on behalf of His Majesty's Government, the following declaration of sympathy with Jewish Zionist aspirations which has been submitted to, and approved by, the Cabinet. “His Majesty's Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.”

I should be grateful if you would bring this declaration to the knowledge of the Zionist Federation.

Yours sincerely,

Arthur James Balfour'

Therefore, the real prime-mover personages behind your and 6-8 million other Palestinians' Dispossession and Suffering is not the famous errand boys and girls of Zionistan whom you quote and whom we all know about.

But those persons whom you are silent on.

The Zionist lieutenants wielding the actual guns and butter and taking on the mortal sins of genocide upon their souls have only been carrying out the agenda of their financial prime-movers.

In my little article: 'Response to Palestine's Contested Histories – Contested Narratives : It's only Beneficial Cognitive Diversity, Not 'sheer nonsense'!', I noted:

Begin Excerpt

'[T]he statement of Efraim: “Not an existential threat. Israel is indestructable. I don’t think we should talk to in apocalyptic terms”, is for all practical purposes, and for the foreseeable future, the most accurate assessment.

That Efraim's observation is not just false bravado, but accurately anchored in the famous 1923 political science statement of Vladimir Jabotinsky which is often misunderstood by the innocent to mean the physical Wall that is today closing off the Palestinians into open-air concentration camps while its intellectuals delightedly accept Peace and Orwell prizes for their own narratives of moral truth:

“The Zionist colonization must either stop, or else proceed regardless of the native population. Which means that it can proceed and develop only under the PROTECTION of a POWER which is independent of the native population behind an iron wall, which the native population cannot BREACH.” — V. Jabotinsky

What is that PROTECTING POWER that has lowered that figurative constricting Iron Wall upon the indigenous population of Palestine which its natives simply cannot BREACH? Never mind BREACH, when I eventually locate a Palestinian intellectual who can even see that PROTECTING POWER, I'll know that it's finally too late!

Damn it, who sustains Zionistan? In whose name is Balfour Declaration issued?

Please endeavor to understand that PROTECTING POWER, and you would have actually understood the prime-mover of "legitimacy".

That word, "legitimacy", is merely a euphemism for PRIMACY of the oligarchy. Henceforth, the syntactically un-sugared capitalized form is used.

Not "conflicting narratives", but the PROTECTING POWER is what's the core fundamental force behind the exercise of PRIMACY in Palestine. That PROTECTING POWER creates many narratives, many conflicts, and manages their controlled and orchestrated clash for beneficial cognitive diversity: the Left-wing, the Right-wing, the Abhorrent Straussian claiming “in the age of atheism, the Jewish people can no longer base its existence on God but only on itself alone, on its labor, on its land, and on its state.” to the Pious Orthodox bobbing at the Wailing Wall, all of which singularly serve to dilute the one truth that is to be supplanted with conquest in order to raise the new phoenix from the ashes of humanity left behind!

And it is not just the exercise of PRIMACY upon the largely agrarian Palestinian populations who lived peaceably side by side and who were suddenly overwhelmed by the sophisticated European ASHKA-NAZI onslaught as also accurately observed by Khalil Nakhleh in his essay, but it is also the indivisible prime-mover force behind the PRIMACY upon the entire world's populations! World domination in a One-World government. It is the exact same PROTECTING POWER, and it has analogously caught the entire world's people unprepared!

That PRIMACY (“legitimacy”) granting PROTECTING POWER, unless challenged ab initio, is handing the fate of the Native Americans to the Palestinians while the learned among them write their erudite theses dissecting the anatomy of “Contested histories”, “contested narratives”. I find this to be an entirely asinine and empty war of words! Useful perhaps for writing academic papers and history books. However, entirely futile in the real world run by the PROTECTING POWER which directly benefits from what the author of the essay has glibly dismissed as “sheer nonsense!”

The real heart of that PROTECTING POWER beats not in Zionistan – which is itself a monumental mystery of such cataclysmic proportion “whose parallel may only be the one of Sinai when something was revealed to mankind” that the heavens too might perhaps now be lamenting why did it ever foist the "chosen peoples" upon mankind, and which all mankind today can see the spectacle of to sing our Hallelujah in gratitude – but in the Golem that lives elsewhere. And which, apparently, none can see even when it hides only in plainsight and actively thrives on that obscurity by controlling all the public narratives where its name is never mentioned! Even by its own victims.

That golem is the real PROTECTING POWER which Jabotinsky had knowingly invoked for the Iron Wall. This POWER is independent of the native population of Palestine, a POWER which they in point of fact cannot BREACH by the manner in which they have been conducting their struggle.

We are running out of time exhausting ourselves in the war of words dear friends of Palestine. A very good red herring distraction that is also noted in the Protocols. Please study them carefully. It is in fact Machiavelli Second Edition plusplus, and it doesn't matter who are its authors. The Protocols speak as much glaring truth of many an empirical matter of diabolical statecraft, as did the solo Machiavelli. Perhaps a lot more!

For all the singular courage displayed by Palestine's young lads hurling physical stones at the Goliath tanks, and its fair maidens fighting the Zionists' pull on their hijab ; for all the tears of parents and grandparents crying themselves to sleep reciting Fatiha while casting their own stones at the tanks of insanity to keep them at bay ; and with each unequivocally delineating the power calculus before it is eventually transformed into narrative mythology to be handed down from generation to generation ; there is evidently not one single intellectual parallel of it which can hurl a single penetrating intellectual stone at the PROTECTING POWER in order to effectively BREACH that IRON WALL!

Let's change that! This is a battle of both 'mens et manus', just like MIT's credo, 'mind and hand'! Not just of hand alone.

End Excerpt

That points the way forward. Unmask the Golem.

With best wishes to an old truth-teller telling it the way it was, from a tad younger one who is humbly telling it the way it is.

Response to Ismail Zayid – Breaching the Iron Wall By Zahir Ebrahim April 08, 2010

Overcoming the Palestinian House of Negroe with 'Mens et Manus' By Zahir Ebrahim

Overcoming the Palestinian House of Negroe with 'Mens et Manus' – A Postscript

Zahir Ebrahim | Project Humanbeingsfirst.org

Sunday April 11, 2010 | Revised April 14, 2010

My earlier response to the exposé of poor socio-economic development and 12 billion dollars missing in Palestine as reported by Dr. Ghania Malhisthe chairwoman of the board of trustees at the Palestinian Economic Policy Research Institute in Ramallah – in a UN Seminar on Assistance to the Palestinian People, held in Vienna on March 25, 2010, did not delve into the topic of organizations funded by hectoring hegemons to play controlled opposition as a Hegelian Dialectic. In this postscript to my followup Open Letter to Palestinian Intellectual which brought up the general issue of accountability and breaking the bonds of colonial servitude, that omission is rectified.

Before we begin, the bland conclusions conveyed by Dr. Malhis on the topic of “International Assistance in Support of the Palestinian Economy” in her paper titled “The Role of Regional Partners” which echoed empire's own axiom in its byline: “Building institutions and moving forward with establishing the State of Palestine”, is worth restating (PDF cached here, page 4):

'The initial analysis has led to two conflicting conclusions.

The first conclusion: the International community and Arab countries have managed to mobilize substantial resources to assist the Palestinian people amounting to no less than 12 billion dollars over the past 15 years.

An additional 6 to 8 billion dollars were also mobilized during that same period through an array of active Arab and international civil society organizations and NGOs.

These numbers are of course highly encouraging when taking into consideration the size of the targeted part of the Palestinian people which do not exceed 3.9 million people in the occupied Palestinian territories and their GDP does not exceed 4.5 billion dollars annually according to the 2009 estimates.

The second conclusion: it has been almost impossible to trace any positive impact of these mobilized resources on the ground, even when taking into consideration the substantial investment carried by the Palestinian private sector in the occupied Palestinian territories, including those made by the Palestinian Diaspora as according to findings, these investment represent one third of the national GDP.

There has been of course a progress in the establishment of Palestinian Authority institutions, along with security, fiscal and administrative reform efforts, but these tens of billions of dollars spent in the past decade have ultimately failed to bring back the performance witnessed in 1999 on the socio-economic front.'

One does not a priori know who really funds the different organizations usually seen boldly playing controlled opposition to any status quo, be it in Palestine, or Iran, Pakistan, and across all the 'orange and green revolutions' throughout the “global zone of percolating violence”, whereby, “birth pangs” are rape-ingly induced by creating “revolutionary times” under the banner of bringing 'democracy'. One sees it plainly in Iraq and Pakistan for instance, without needing any additional commentary.

The masses in our region, as in the West, are easily duped into playing the election con-game. To elect by their own choice of vote, the hectoring hegemons' oligarchic selection, manufactured to suitable electability by the foundations and think-tanks along the Potomac, and presented to the public by co-opted political parties and special-interest groups. We see this trivially of President Obama being chosen by the electorate, but effectively carrying out exactly the 'Bush doctrine' polices. We see this trivially in Pakistan with President Zardari, the most well-known corrupt man in Pakistan, being chosen by the electorate, but carrying out exactly the 'Mush doctrine' policies which is entirely an appendage of the 'Bush doctrine' in place in Pakistan since 911. It is empirically obvious that 'democracy' is part of the 'panem et circenses' – 'bread and circuses'. Why should it be any different in Palestine – a militarily occupied territory?

As already discussed in the afore-cited analyses, the 12 billion dollars which disappeared in Palestine is largely to be seen as the hectoring hegemons' own calculated con-game, including that of payoffs for services rendered to the corrupt establishment which they have themselves installed, and who therefore entirely dance to their masa's tunes. Let's now briefly look into the 'pro democracy' controlled opposition to the same corrupt establishment.

Both the establishment and its opposition are often hand-crafted by the same hectoring hegemons for controlling client-states through proxies in what has become the modern architecture of neo-colonialism. This is a Hegelian Dialectic as old as empire. It serves the purpose of keeping well-intentioned people effectively running on a treadmill, often between twiddledee and twiddledum. The faster people run to escape it, more quickly they exhaust themselves getting nowhere – the wondrous self-sustaining power of Machiavelli!

A controlled opposition is very easy to identify. In fact, so easy to identify that the fact that they credibly remain before the mainstream public's eye without such a precise outing can only be attributed to the immense power of the Mighty Wurlitzer. It can convince people of the most ridiculous absurdities and get them acquiescing to the most horrendous atrocities – the enduring power of Machiavellian Political Science.

So how does one identify Machiavellianly seeded controlled opposition?

For one thing, it shares common core-axioms with the hectoring hegemons, and always either echoes them outright (when manufacturing consent), or remains silent on them (when playing dissent).

Put that concise principle to test yourself. More about this may be gleaned in the report 'Manufacturing Dissent – The Master Social Science' which contains several case studies of manufactured dissent.

Foreign funding of controlled dissent through front-organizations and through intangible benefits such as junkets and invitations is a big business of hegemony. Especially the funding of 'pro democracy' NGOs, and various other civil society institutions often seen pitching 'secular humanism', all of which ostensibly oppose the establishment's status-quo: be it a military dictatorship in power ; be it some other tyranny in power by any other name such as an elected 'democracy' effectively running a police-state ; be it an ideology to be synthetically opposed as a Hegelian Dialectic, such as 'militant Islam' ; or be it the mere introduction of “beneficial cognitive diversity” to keep people confused chasing red herrings, while the real show in a different part of town inches irreversibly towards fait accompli.

Anyone who has spent any time studying political science, or perhaps studied it at the University of Chicago (or any number of other elite institutions from MIT to Harvard), would trivially recognize these principles being practiced in modern statecraft, as even Dr. Francis Boyle recently vouched.

Controlling the opposition enables controlling all discourse in society. By straight-jacketing all national dialog into a box, and then permitting vigorous debate within that box, including exposés and corruption scandal outings, helps provide all the right illusions pertinent to maintaining society in a matrix of synthetic reality, a combination of truths, half-truths, and outright lies. All made experiential and hence as empirical as Alice felt in Wonderland.

But more pertinent to the topic here, controlling the opposition in developing nations is also used to effectively destabilize an existing status quo to keep the establishment in perpetual check ; or to replace it with a new face to give people the 'change' they demand ; or to affect 'regime change' as is being diabolically instrumented in Iran with the new 'green revolution' (see pages 27 to 29 in the referenced PDF below).

All the CIA backed coups since the CIA's inception were mostly brought about by such subversive controlled opposition from within. That's of course not news, as even a semi-moron can witness from Iran in 1953 to Venezuela in 2002. Therefore, denying the presence of fifth columnists who are routinely cultivated as dupes, patsies, and mercenaries to continually undermine nations is a necessity of psyops, especially when the subversion is on-going and continuous. Only of course to be blithely revealed ex post facto, after a major coup d'état or exposé, when the wise fuddy-duddies who denied its existence as outrageous 'conspiracy theory' at the time, write books upon books exposing it. Again, controlled opposition, controlled morality, controlled memory, and controlled bullshit of the intellectual. As mainly a historical footnote, it is perhaps worth mentioning that it was glibly admitted in his 1996 memoirs, Profiles of Intelligence, by a former Director of Pakistan's ISI, of how such a controlled opposition was fomented with suitcases full of American dollars to send the rather intransigent elected Pakistani prime minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto to the gallows, replacing him with a more pliable military-uniform which provided the Carter-Brzezinski White House the “opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam war” from Pakistan (read the pertinent excerpt here).

An anonymous website just a few days ago did such an excellent compilation of references on this very topic that I refer the reader to study pages 2 to 9 of its archived PDF, if interested in acutely understanding who funds controlled opposition via NGOs and the many shades of 'pro democracy' sentinels instituted in our developing nations. Thanks to the anonymous person who compiled this section: '2. Everything You Always Didn’t Want To Know About NGOs/USAID But Here It Is Anyways'.

What does that have to do with this 12 Billion missing exposé in Palestine? Everything.

Palestine is on this 'Alice in Wonderland' planet, not on Mars. Therefore, it is also subjected to the same demonic forces of Machiavelli as every other nation. Why should it get a free ride?

In fact, Palestine is even more targeted with the full spectrum power of Machiavellian statecraft as its land is being forcibly colonized by the same hectoring hegemons even as we speak! The absence of any unraveling of Machiavelli to any depth in Palestine is itself very telling.

Therefore, reading about this news of partial-truth presented at the UN by Dr. Malhis, one would like to understand who really funds the organization of which Dr. Malhis is a apart. Who paid for her journey to Vienna unless of course it came from her personal funds, who facilitated her passport and travel, egress and ingress (contrast with the treatment meted to the young photojournalist from the Raffah refugee camp, Mohammed Omer, and who has difficulty even getting a visa), and who set her up to play the controlled opposition to Palestinian leadership such that she not only echoed empire's core-axioms, mantras, and platitudes, but also remained silent on what needed to be said. Why did the UN Seminar invite her to speak to socio-economics, but not permit her to speak to the truth of Zionist quest for Lebensraum in Eretz Yisrael. It is as incomprehensible that Dr. Malhis would be unfamiliar with Zionism as Dr. Mustafa Barghouti when the latter had spewed platitudes and omissions on American television.

Perhaps the same question of ease of access could be asked of the veteran journalist, who despite living in difficult circumstances in exile, is permitted to freely roam around Europe and America (as depicted on her own website and in the excellent collections of photographs), attend high profile parleys, and bring us the news almost verbatim, perhaps as is intended by powers that be who permit her such luxuries. Kawther Salam who reported the speech of Dr. Malhis, is one courageous journalist, no doubt about it. But one wonders about being made a patsy!

Here is a straightforward test of reality-check outside of Alice in Wonderland for any public person who rubs elbows at the UN. Next time publicly state at a UN Seminar the unstated empirical observations begging for a world audience: 911 appears to have been an inside job for Zbigniew Brzezinski's and PNAC's pre-planned pre-advertised “imperial mobilization” ; the House of Rockefeller runs the UN and funds the CFR and the Trilateral Commission along with a hundred other tax-exempt foundations which ab initio created the policies of “imperial mobilization” as a diabolical “end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece” including that of the United States of America itself – minimally a treason and conspiracy to commit treason ; the House of Rothschild is the real power behind Israel, as well as the interlocking power behind all the world's private central banks, including the Rockefeller fortunes and therefore, also controls American foreign policy via the Rockefeller funded foundations just as much as it controls the EU Parliament and the UK ; that One-world government, i.e., scientific totalitarian dictatorship through Global Governance, is their one common purpose which runs directly through Zion and therefore, nothing can be done of the Palestinian question unless these godfathers of war and hegemony, living in palaces and protected by the fiat of legalism and state-power, are neutered first!

Let's see who is invited to the UN, never mind permitted to board a flight afterwards to leave for home, other than on a rendition flight! Some FEMA hospitality camp just might be their holiday destination next!

That being the unvarnished fact of the matter for anyone who might care to spend some time in a public library rather then jet-setting across continents and glamorously hob-nobbing with the who's who at the UN, one knows that one is only Looking Through the Glass at the absurdly deep rabbit hole of Alice in Wonderland.

It is already patently apparent that just as in Pakistan, almost all of Palestinian institutions, its militant organizations, its political leadership, its NGOs, its civil society, its secular humanists, its religious organizations, and even its official resistance to occupation, play some convoluted role in this thespian production of Alice in Wonderland on the world's stage. Some play the part knowingly as outright mercenaries, and some play it unknowingly as dupes and/or co-opted patsies, often as the proverbial sidekicks and foils necessary for effective story-telling by the main characters in a long-running soap-operatic production.

I use the word 'almost' above reservedly because it is referring to Palestinian officialdom and its publicly recognized entities including its opposition – for only those are permitted to exist and mainly flourish by the fiat of hegemony. The only genuine resistance in Palestine that I see (as also in the Diaspora to some extent), is in the tenacity of its ordinary peoples whereby “the old [refuse to] die and the young [refuse to] forget.”

The Palestinian people at ground zero obviously remain the principal core-obstacle for Israel in its aspirations for Zionistan – not the institutions of PLO, not Hamas, not Hezbollah (nor Iran, nor Syria, nor the so called Arab World, nor the American people, and certainly not the Palestinians already evicted from ground zero). This is simply a statement of empirical fact.

Therefore, it is primarily the ordinary Palestinian masses on ground zero who have to be vicariously fooled and cajoled with successive 'hegelian mind fcks', kept on a treadmill in their active resistance, and ultimately brought to their knees from sheer exhaustion, euthanized, assassinated, eradicated, evicted, or forced to leave on their own. Let's not forget that the one inviolable principal modus operandi in the conquest of Zionistan throughout the past 100 years of systematic Palestinian dispossession from Palestine and concomitant Jewish injection into Eretz Yisrael, is entirely captured in this one pithy David Ben Gurion's statement: “We must do everything to insure they (the Palestinians) never do return ... The old will die and the young will forget.”

And were Ben Gurion alive today, he might have just continued, reinforcing the tortuous reality on the ground: So socio-economic develop all you want in Palestine – we are right behind you to bomb it right back to smithereens to ensure that you will eventually throw-in the towel and never do return!

The crucial tool to create that very principled outcome among the Palestinian masses – apart from imperial blazing guns and the occasional butter – has always been Machiavelli! And its main 'errand boys', as always, have been inducted from among the ranks of the Palestinians themselves – principally from among its elite.

These are the naturally occurring House Negroes of many nuanced shades automatically springing up like weeds among any 'untermenschen' when the white man rules the roost. And every House Negro of course also always has some personal story to tell, of being oppressed, of being dispossessed, of having buried their dead, of their old house keys still dangling on their master key-chain.

Unless these tormented but mentally colonized fifth columnists are evicted from their perches – the mercenaries and traitors among them of course juridically administered, and the rest simply dispatched to the oblivion of a non-public life – and replaced by a younger generation of courageous field Negroes who are unburdened by trauma, and savvy to the statecraft of their oppressors, there is likely to be no Palestine for Palestinians.

That unraveling of the Palestinian House of Negroe, as painful as it is, must be done before any struggle can succeed. And as in Pakistan, it will of course entirely be ignored by the Palestinians themselves. When the dominant discourse is controlled by the House Negroes and fully supported by the hectoring hegemons, one can hardly expect them to indict themselves, never mind reform themselves. Thus it is not just coincidental that both peoples not only suffer a common enemy, and a common fate, but most important to averting that fate, a common malaise!

Before attempting to counter the overwhelming superiority of the hectoring hegemons and being effective in it, both peoples must come to uncomfortable grips with their own House of Negroe. It could be one's father, mother, brother, sister, a respected elder. That is indeed the enduring power of Machiavellian conquest which helps it sustain itself. No nation can be free until its people make it free. But who wishes to go against one's own loved ones peaceably? Thus is created civil wars and more “revolutionary times” in order to throw out the old. And with Machiavelli diabolically perched right there to harness that too!

Which is why, nation-building, as much as nation-reclaiming from tyranny, is a vigorous battle of both 'mens et manus' – mind and hand – synergistically working together to watchfully thwart the old while creatively engineering the new. And that's just the way it is!
