Letter to Palestinian Think Tank
The following follow-up comment, posted by Project Humanbeingsfirst here, to its article “Celebrating Israel’s 60th Birthday in the 60th year of the Nakba” may be of some interest to your think-tankers. Perhaps you can reprint it with the above title.
I happen to be a Zionist. I’m a Zionist by dint of the fact that I live here and constitute part of Hebrew culture, even if I am opposed to the present regime and criticize it harshly. ... . For now, I’m on the losing side of this struggle, therefore I’m defined as anti-Zionist. So be it.” [Interview 'A life less ordinary', Haaretz, Dec. 10, 2007]
Thank you for that clarification – to both, the above commenter, and posthumously, to Prof. Baruch Kimmerling.
And therein lies the quintessential component of the endless trail of red herrings that almost all on the proverbial “LEFT” in the West spin in support of Zion.
The logical follow-up question to ask then, is to which past and future “regime” aren't they opposed to in Israel in order to not be “defined as anti-Zionist”? Then we can further examine that regime and dismantle that too.
It is worthwhile remembering that powerful wordsmithing is a crucial strength of Zion - many of its exponents happen to be superb linguists not just accidentally! It is best captured in this pithy saying of Golda Meir:
We can forgive them for killing our children, we cannot forgive them for making us kill theirs.”
Indeed, it is not insignificant that in Arabistan (i.e., the abode of the Arabs), the following bit of wisdom is not un-common – they will first plan to kill you with a design most brutal, and then come to your funeral lamenting: “We can forgive them for killing our children, we cannot forgive them for making us kill theirs.”
If interested, see Chapter 3 of Prisoners of the Cave for how it is all put together – the moralists and the terrorists united in a common cause, the two antipodes with all the rest of Zionists in between: http://prisonersofthecave.blogspot.com/2007/04/chapter-3.html.
Acquiring a penetrating perspective of how Zionistan has been intellectually orchestrated piece-meal with deception as the key weapon system of choice – wage war by way of deception – is a prerequisite in order to even begin to deal with any sort of solution-space that rescues the Palestinians on their own lands.
Palestinians as a peoples will surely survive and even thrive in their forced Diaspora, just as the Jews before them – at least those who are able to escape from the Concentration Camps in what remains of their checkered-lands. But to effectively stop the systematic barbaric conquests of their ancestral homes and the continuous shattering of their tabula rasa (or what little might remain of it), requires a massive and overwhelming “shock and awe” war-front to be opened up in the intellectual space.
A conquest and an oppression originally begun in the intellectual space, will also only be concluded there. The Zionist masterminds apparently understand this far better than the Palestinians. And therefore, always appear to be better prepared across the board. The Palestinians to this day, sadly, unprepared for the Nakba as they were, have evidently mainly excelled in vociferous laments, and in reacting – rather than in astutely anticipating, and preempting!
Anecdotally, in 1967 after the onset of the second Nakba, another Pakistani, a far more distinguished and astute one, wrote to Yaser Arafat to not engage the Israelis by firing Katsuya rockets at them – but to understand that the Jews barely escaping their Holocaust will always garner the Western world's sympathy ex post facto, in their disingenuous vociferous clamoring 'they are doing another Holocaust on us' as they conquer more and more in response to the Katsuyas. That instead, the Palestinians should engage the Zionists by astutely comprehending their antagonists strengths, and their weaknesses (and not just in military terms). That the best and most efficacious defense against them was Gandhian means – effective surrogates and "frontier-post" as they were of the superpowers. He was entirely ignored.
And yet this Pakistani persisted – being a close friend and compatriot of Edward Said that he was – and with every incremental fait accompli gained by Israel in reaction to PLO's Katsuya rockets, he reminded them again, and again. And he remained ignored – to this very day – even posthumously.
And with every new “peace process”, the Palestinians have lost more, using the method:
take 10 and give back 1 if the Palestinians behave, then repeat!
Anyone can hopefully do that math to get the total sum!
This distinguished Pakistani friend of the Palestinian's name? Eqbal Ahmad – see http://www.bitsonline.net/eqbal/
Sometimes, it is indeed too late to learn. That time, mercifully, hasn't come yet – but is close at hand!

Subject: Your Interview “Government Insider: Bush Authorized 911 Attacks”

Friday, May 23, 2008.

Dear Mr. Alex Jones – Dissent-Chief Extraordinaire,

I do not know how to reach you directly, so I am writing this public letter in the hope that you will get to see it and will choose to respond.

I humbly wish to draw your kind attention to a comment that I posted on May 21st , 2008 at 5:50 pm, for the very un-forensic interview that you conducted with Stanley Hilton “Government Insider: Bush Authorized 911 Attacks”.

The most disturbing question about this interview is why should a famous gadfly like yourself, one who has become an immensely popular magnet for the most radical and overzealous of 'truth-seekers' among the dissent-space in the United States, deliberately try to push this concept of “Bush Authorized 911 Attacks” in this interview, and even attempt to give it extra credibility by prefacing the interview transcript with: “Keep in mind when reading this, that the man being interviewed is no two-bit internet conspiracy buff”, and yet, produce not a shard of the purported evidence? The credibility of this interview is rather straightforwardly analyzed in my comment posted on your website, and which is also reproduced below for your convenience. I hope that as the rising gadfly 'dissenting chief' of many a rebel and 'mal-content', that you will appreciate and welcome a tiny plebeian gnat on your own very prominent back!

I am entirely worried that just as the uber gadfly extraordinaire Noam Chomsky takes the opposite extreme position, of a “Bin Laden” and “Al-Qaeeda” dun-it without producing any evidence or rational analysis to support his conjectures that can withstand any forensic scrutiny, you seem to be taking the other extreme position, entirely following in his very large and distinguished footsteps. It almost appears as if, surely only inadvertently, a dialectics of infamy (also known as Ezra Pound's 'technique of infamy') is being re-constructed in the dissent-space to cater to the needs and proclivities of every breed of emergent flock and every possibility (see Responsibility of Intellectuals – Redux). Everything except that which might actually be true, provable, or useful in efficaciously preempting “imperial mobilization” which every American of conscience, as per all the public opinion polls over the past few years, opposes. And primarily opposes more today than yesterday, because the “economic self-denial (that is defense spending), and the human sacrifice (casualties even among professional soldiers) required in the effort are [finally becoming] uncongenial to democratic instincts.”

IMHO, only the timely institutional capitalization upon this emerging new domestic reality in America can lead to any efficacy of dissent! The window of opportunity is tiny and shrinking rapidly, bounded that it is in the initial stages of the game by the apathetic or scared and all too willing “United We Stand” public on one end, and the COG and Martial Law on the other before the “democratic instincts” very predictably begin to react towards the end-game. That public reaction too has been astutely modulated and controlled, and you know all this far better than this scribe.

And yet, all the distinguished gadflies of empire are busy with what? Cultivating more red herrings! How many have actually done any insightful analysis of what it takes to derail “imperial mobilization”? I have only mainly heard platitudes, moralizing, sky-is-falling, or rehash of the crimes of empire, with many just laughing their way to their banks in soaring book sales and speaking engagement fees! But what I don't hear is efficacious solution-spaces!

In this regard, I humbly draw your kind attention to this report by Project Humanbeingsfirst: How to derail 'imperial mobilization' and preempt the crossing of the Nuclear Rubicon.

And to this key passage therein:

If there is reason for the United States to nuclear decimate any country or any peoples in purported 'self-defense', the American peoples must demand a ratification of the decision to go to war through a public referendum – let its great “populist democracy” speak directly in the modernity of the 21st century before it is called upon to make its sacrifices, before it is called upon to pay its taxes to fund the war, and before it is called upon to acquire innocent blood on its hands!

You will surely agree in principle with the afore stated paragraph, that a mandatory public referendum before initiating any “'defensive' US military action” can not only immediately catalyze the much needed world Détente on the 'Grand Chessboard' by the ordinary American public themselves, but also preempt both another 911 upon America's shores, and the crossing of the nuclear Rubicon – because now, an almost insurmountable institutional road-block would have been enacted in the veritable path of “imperial mobilization” within the legal framework of governance, which in these times of 'once bitten twice shy', will surely vote a “NAY”!

This entirely eliminates the typical mobilizing impact harvested from a catalyzing “new Pearl Harbor” false flag operation, and hence the very usefulness of planning and executing a costly criminal operation that has little payback. Especially today with the American peoples already war averse! If this genuine democratic hook was today present in the system, perhaps the first 911 war on Afghanistan could not have been prevented due to its shock impact; perhaps the costly launching of war on Iraq may also not have been prevented as plebeian America was still going strong “United We Stand” through the projected “cake-walk”; but today, with this nation bleeding, gas prices over $4.00, and many perched at the edge of insolvency, it would entirely eliminate the raison d'être of another 911 that President Bush repeatedly warns the Americans about every chance he gets:

Good morning [America]. At this moment, somewhere in the world, terrorists are planning new attacks on our country. Their goal is to bring destruction to our shores that will make September the 11th pale by comparison.” (President of the United States, George W. Bush, Feb. 13, 2008)

And which, Donald Rumsfeld so sanguinely opines in a recently disclosed 2006 video-tape, he rather have to get the peoples to take the 'threats' to America seriously because they lack “the maturity to recognize the seriousness of the ‘threats’”. With the afore-stated plebeians' hook in place, his next statement wouldn't have the grotesque import that it now has, would it(?):

The correction for that, I suppose, is another attack.”

Direct referendum is a simple well known mechanism that can be far more potent and efficacious within the requisite timelines of urgency, than what all the Anti-War Movements, 911 Truth Movements, Impeachment Movements, Whistle-blower Movements, Book-Publishing Movements, Reformed Alcoholic Movements, Internet Rant Movements, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera, have been able to preempt since 911!

Indeed, IMHO, all that these various Movements have been able to orchestrate, is a glorious trail of inefficacy, red herrings, exercise on treadmills, armchair internet activism (substitute for the mainstream's 7 o'clock news), and the very enablement of “imperial mobilization” through their impotency – as even the President of the United States had noted on the eve of the invasion of Iraq, responding to the question “Given the size of the protests in England over the weekend, do you have any concerns that Tony Blair might pay a serious political price for supporting you on Iraq?”, he had said:

First of all, you know, size of protest, it's like deciding, well, I'm going to decide policy based upon a focus group.” (President George W. Bush, February 23, 2003)

Unless the handful of conscionable peoples who do rise-up to protest, and especially those who rise to prominent positions of leadership among them, also learn to forensically analyze their failure to be efficacious in their dissent instead of eagerly always grasping at every straw and red herring planted their way, they inevitably become part of sustaining the very same “imperial mobilization” they oppose! Dissent has thus, in effect, become an essential and very treacherous component of empire! It enables conscionable people to feel good on the treadmill, and accomplishes no useful interference with the imperial projects of empire.

This is precisely what Hectoring Hegemons of all shades and stripes count on, and the dissenting-chiefs of empire so excel in assisting them in: the ability to construct imperial faits accomplis while providing the conscionable plebeians with some astutely constructed 'blow out the steam safety-valves' through managed dissent! Even that 'safety-valve' won't be needed under Martial Law – and you must surely agree with that bit of palpable truism!

Therefore, I hope you can join me in advocating this efficacious measure wholeheartedly, if it makes sense to you for its immediate efficacy given the grotesque reality du jour. How to instrument its realization requires all of dissent-space coming together on this one singular focal point of action and not be wasting its precious time and resources chasing this and that cleverly cultivated red herring traps like the one you seem to be, surely only inadvertently, pushing in your interview of Stanley Hilton.

Please feel free to constructively critique anything I have written – I invite you to take it apart not with rants on a megaphone, but with convincing logic and rationalism with the touchstone of efficacy being the paramount yardstick of useful dissent! I don't have all the answers that still need to be uncovered to practically derail “imperial mobilization”, and am just as much concerned about the crossing of the nuclear Rubicon as the rest of conscionable thinking peoples on the planet who see its constructions in the making. That must surely remain the first priority of all peoples!

You do real good work (in most cases) and I humbly thank you for having the courage of your convictions and showing us ordinary folks the way. That said, the victims of “imperial mobilization” care little how hard the dissenters yelled in their megaphones in the streets of America! Please do keep that in mind!

Thank you.

Comments on “Government Insider: Bush Authorized 911 Attacks”:

Zahir Ebrahim/Project Humanbeingsfirst.org Says:

May 21st , 2008 at 5:50 pm

Hello –

After reading this bizarre article, I wrote the following note to Noam Chomsky - I wish to share an excerpt from it here because it hits at the heart of the matter: this disclosure is a bit too early in time! If these statements aren’t mere hyperbole but backed with evidence: “ … but in actually ordering it to happen. Bush personally ordered it to happen. We have some very incriminating documents as well as eye-witnesses, that Bush personally ordered this event to happen in order to gain …”, then this nice gentleman would be prematurely “sleeping with the fishes” by now (Heavens forbid – and may he live long and prosper).

While there [can be] no doubt to this overarching phrase from his statement: “And this was a direct, covert operation ordered”, at least by someone, to assert [that] there is evidence which points to the President of the United States, and then live to state it, is counter-intuitive – no different than the Government’s version that a caveman Yoda master from the Hindu Kush using mind-melding Yoga to overcome all of America’s air-defences and simultaneously “control-demolition” the towers in a “shock and awe” of his own upon the most armed to the teeth superpower national security state in the history of civilizations and conveniently [also] leave his calling card behind so that the angry-elephant will know exactly where to bomb him, is counter-intuitive.

So either there is no [accessible] evidence [which is why 'state-secrets privilege' and high-speed shredders exist in the first place], or these are mere allegations and conjectures, hearsay, hyperbolics, etc., and only in these two cases, can this person live to tell this tale.

The s/n ratio seems very weak in this interview on account of rationality of analysis. If there was any real evidence as he states, this guy would have naturally pulled an “Ellsberg”, i.e., gone the “Pentagon Papers” route – not merely talk about it [publicly]!

This Government, as with the Third Reich before it, is very ‘legality’ conscious – and if an incriminating document as suggested here can [accessibly] exist which can indict its leader: [then it is logical to presume that] if they can do a 911 like grotesque [false flag] operation and kill 3000 of their own citizens, they surely wouldn’t mind killing one more [and would do it before the 'rat' even ventured to squeal]! QED!

I wrote [the following] note to Noam Chomsky because he vehemently argues for the Government’s version [of 911] primarily because he thinks it’s too big of a lie otherwise; not because he thinks the Government is a saint (obviously). It would be interesting to see what he has to say to this supposed “insider’s revelation” which runs counter to his [publicly] stated position. I’ll ask him to post his response here (if he makes any).



Thank you.

———- Letter to Noam Chomsky ———-

Date: Wed, 21 May 2008 13:58:28 -0800

Subject: Interesting article in Pakistani paper for your comments!

Dear Prof. Chomsky

Please check out this article which appeared in a Pakistani newspaper. …

http://www.daily.pk/.../george-w-bush-authorized-911-attacks-says-government-insider.html

I am a bit surprised by this disclosure – not by what the neocons were doing at Univ. of Chicago for I have actually read some of these thesis believe it or not. One of them is very interesting, “Coup d'etat” – you may have read it already. I bought it and read it on the plane last year! I am quite well read in Straussian craft and its history by now, and also have studied Brzezinski et. al quite a bit. So none of this information is new to me. Rather I know it to be correct by first-hand study of their state-craft doctrines. However what is a bit surprising is the disclosure that I am seeking your opinion on – for it has come too soon.

I was thinking that it will be at least 50 years – and in the meantime, we will all be looking either for a “Bin Laden's” hand (that's you – which conveniently echoes the Pentagon's and White House's story-line), or another covert-hand aka “Hari-Seldon's Second Foundationers” within the existing system of governance and/or perched upon its edge with deep tentacles into both the Pentagon's DIA and NORAD which means at least a minimal civil-military collusion space, and deep pockets (and that's me – which mistrusts and distrusts any Governments' version of anything, preferring instead to rely on Ellsberg's experience of the Pentagon [Papers] era that “Governments lie”, the size of the lie is immaterial; and your own prior teachings of “outlaw” and “rogue” states).

Regards,

Zahir

Response to 'Expulsion of Jews from Muslim Countries in the 60 years of Nakba'
The comment [to the article written by a Palestinian Mazin Qumsiyeh – “Palestinian Options as the Nakba turns 60”], perhaps by a genuinely anguished Jewish person from Helsinki Finland:
“... not ONLY the expelsion of Jews from various Moslim countries in the last 60 years that Israel has been an independent state, ... The Jews are no settlers of colonialism ... it is now a time of a media war to spit on the Jews and curse the Jewish Scriptures. ... ”
is perhaps best addressed by another Jewish person from that very region who can bring perspective to bear on the grave matter:
which begins with the following preface by AMEU:
begin quote
The Link interviewed Naeim Giladi, a Jew from Iraq, for three hours on March 16, 1998, two days prior to his 69th birthday. For nearly two other delightful hours, we were treated to a multi-course Arabic meal prepared by his wife Rachael, who is also Iraqi. “It’s our Arab culture,” he said proudly.
In our previous Link, Israeli historian Ilan Pappe looked at the hundreds of thousands of indigenous Palestinians whose lives were uprooted to make room for foreigners who would come to populate confiscated land. Most were Ashkenazi Jews from Eastern Europe. But over half a million other Jews came from Islamic lands. Zionist propagandists claim that Israel “rescued” these Jews from their anti-Jewish, Muslim neighbors. One of those “rescued” Jews-Naeim Giladi-knows otherwise.
In his book, Ben Gurion’s Scandals: How the Haganah & the Mossad Eliminated Jews, Giladi discusses the crimes committed by Zionists in their frenzy to import raw Jewish labor. Newly-vacated farmlands had to be plowed to provide food for the immigrants and the military ranks had to be filled with conscripts to defend the stolen lands. Mr. Giladi couldn’t get his book published in Israel, and even in the U.S. he discovered he could do so only if he used his own money.
The Giladis, now U.S. citizens, live in New York City. By choice, they no longer hold Israeli citizenship. “I am Iraqi,” he told us, “born in Iraq, my culture still Iraqi Arabic, my religion Jewish, my citizenship American.”
End quote
Please read the interview in its details which entirely addresses every single point raised by the commenter from Finland, and do followup on the cited book [Ben Gurion’s Scandals].
One’s mileage of course will vary depending on the degree of indoctrination and mis-information that one has been deliberately fed as part of the Zionist thought control of the world-wide Jewry to garner their support for Der-Judenstadt in the midst of latter day Palestine [See “Celebrating Israel's 60th Birthday in the 60th year of the Nakba”].
As Noam Chomsky says, it takes a sentence to construct a lie, and considerably more space (and time and energy) to refute it – thus wasting enormous amounts of conscionable peoples resources which could be spent doing something more productive – and that is the Zionist game-plan to further the process of conquest of Eretz Yisrael. To keep cultivating an infinite supply of red herrings in order to systematically seed newer faits accomplis which are subsequently impossible to reverse due to the new reality on the ground that gets constructed. In another hundred years, or perhaps even fifty, there will be no need for these red herrings and lies. The facts of how the land of Canaan was settled by the Zionist Jews will be openly proclaimed by all and sundry, as is done for the settling of another new world on another continent at the expense of 10 million of its natives. Who does not know that story today?
To really rationally understand this emotional subject matter, rather than either becoming an inadvertent part of a spin-machine, or purposely spewing deception, please see “The endless trail of red herrings”. Searching for that string on the web will locate it, but one can find it on another Jewish person’s website as well: http://www.ilanpappe.org/news.html.
And there is certainly no doubt that indigenous Jews belong as much in Israel-Palestine, and in the Middle East, as all its other indigenous peoples. No one, especially no alien, has the right to dispossess another native – unless the time-honored hands of the victors’ system of Justice have to prevail as in the case of rectifying even any ordinary crime of robbers taking over another’s home in armed invasion robbery, let alone when a supreme monumental crime against humanity is continually being committed over the past 100 years! As per Nuremberg laws, much of the Israeli Zionist leadership, past and present, both within Israel and those supportive of Israel from outside its borders, would hang multiple times! But of course, those laws have only been used to settle scores by the victors for the defeated peoples crimes! Just that fact unto itself may become a precedent setter for the future – a condition that ought to worry the entire world-wide far-sighted conscionable Jewry.


Thank you.

Letter to Palestine Think Tank on 'Palestinian options as the Nakba turns 60'
Thank you for the Palestinian perspective. Many insightful observations [by Mazin Qumsiyeh].
I am not sure how to put this [response] very elegantly, so I hope I can be forgiven for putting it rather straightforwardly. The following is a wonderful recipe if I was the Hectoring Hegemon and my pending meal was sold these philosophies:
begin quote
For now, the choice that remains relevant is the one posed by Martin Luther King, Jr.:
“Cowardice asks the question - is it safe? Expediency asks the question - is it politic? Vanity asks the question - is it popular? But conscience asks the question - is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular; but one must take it because it is right.”
And choosing to do what is right must also adhere to that universal wisdom: “Grant me the courage to change the things I can, the serenity to accept those I can’t, and the WISDOM TO KNOW the difference.”
end quote
I hope one can see why! This does however require more than a few seconds of reflection. In fact, it perhaps requires very carefully studying how the Zionists acquired Palestine as if one is doing a Ph.D. (in a hard discipline), in order to appreciate its import.
The best way for the Palestinian people to analyze their predicament, IMHO, is to study Theodore Herzl, and the systems of power and its many manifestations that were set up by the Zionists in the early twentieth century to realize his plan. Can one observe any of the wonderful prose that is quoted above, in any of the Zionist writings, or in any of the processes that were set up which eventually led to the Balfour Declaration? Did the Jewish scholars, Rabbis, think-tankers and financiers advise their flock to pray to their G-d to “Grant me the courage to change the things I can, the serenity to accept those I can’t, and the WISDOM TO KNOW the difference”? The only prayers they offered were in deception to sell the otherwise impossible task of relocating them to Zion! The only appeal to G-d (i.e., any sort of spirituality, the “right” thing to do stuff, etc.) was to actually achieve the impossible!
And the Zionists did indeed accomplish the impossible!!!!
If one were playing with wooden chess pieces on the ‘Grand Chessboard’ instead of in real human flesh and souls, one would have applauded them on their gamesmanship!
As strategists, tacticians, institution and organization builders, and of course, also mantra spinners, they have been peerless masterminds. One would be foolish to not learn from the masters themselves!
If a Palestinian can get out of his or her skin for a moment, is able detach oneself from the insufferable pain of one’s shattered tabula rasa, and move on to the far distance of the planet Mars to rationally analyze the devilishly sophisticated processes that went into the construction of Israel, one might be able to do a bit more efficacious thinking, and leading.
If one can intellectually recast the problem, of the Palestinians commencing the planning to reacquire their lost Palestine in 2008, after losing it for only 60 years, to be the equivalent of the Zionists planning to acquire Palestine in 1898, after having lost it for 3000 years, what does one get? One can immediately observe that the Zionists started off on an almost intractable problem and overcame it all. Not only that, they were so sure that they will acquire their dream that Herzl had even boasted at the very inception of their plan to seed confidence in the plan: “In Basle I founded the Jewish state . . . Maybe in five years, certainly in fifty, everyone will realize it.” [quote wording corrected]. Circumstances of course, also helped. But in the writings and methods of the Palestinians’ arch nemeses, and in their modus operandi in the 50 years that preceded the onset of the Nakba, possibly lie the efficacious seeds of orchestrating the desired Palestinian solution-space. All Palestinians already know [what] their solution-space is in 2008, just as all the Zionist also already knew what their solution-space was in 1898.
It is how to get there that requires a careful study of power and its incantations. None of which include the lame recipe quoted above. To catch a mere glimpse of the sophisticated intellectual capital that went into the construction of Israel – just look at this statement of David Ben Gurion“What is inconceivable in normal times is possible in revolutionary times”!
When the Palestinians can come up with such intellectual capital – that is the day when their fortunes will perhaps begin to change!


Thank you.

Letter to Editor, Tehran Times
California, United States. Monday June 09, 2008. 4:37 PM

Your report of June 10, 2008, noted the following statement from Iran's top leadership:

' “Surely the United States' dreams about Iraq will not come true,” Ayatollah Khamenei stated in a meeting with visiting Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki. '

Certainly Iran and Iraq are both besieged by tremendous difficulties and hardships, with a possible nuclear holocaust of Iran lurking in the shadows of contrived pretexts. The minimum that both the Iranian and Iraqi leadership can demonstrate in their public pronouncements is that they understand the grotesque behind the scenes reality. The above statement betrays such a lack of perception. What does the respected Ayatollah mean that “Surely the United States' dreams about Iraq will not come true,”? They have already come true! The raping of Mesopotamia, destroying the DNA of its ancient peoples, and bombing all of Iraq back to pre-historic times from whence it cannot even reclaim clean non-Uranium laden drinking water, is the meaning of “Mission Accomplished”! In order to understand what lies behind the visible puppet-shows, one has to trace the un-subtle strings back to the un-hidden puppet-masters and to their blatant tortuous ideologies of conquests of constructing “Revolutionary Times” which will lead to a) half the destruction of humanity as we know it, and b) a new world order of a single world government located in Zionistan with the rest of the world subservient to it. Perhaps the respected Ayatollah understands this all too well. And perhaps he does not. In the latter event, as noted in this previous letter to editor which was not published by Tehran Times (http://humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2008/05/letter-tehrantimes-cia-terror-network.html), he and the rest of Iranian leadership do a great disservice to the people of Iran who are today poised at the brink of nuclear annihilation. The least these leaders can do is to comprehend, and publicly betray their apprehension, of the grave dangers Iran faces today that can create a far worse fate for its ancient and proud peoples than the one that has been so devilishly constructed for the Iraqis! Please also see Project Humanbeingsfirst's report “Heads-up warning to the American Peoples – Nuclear attack on Iran appears imminent!” http://humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2008/03/warningamerica-nuking-iran-imminent.html.

Letter to Editor, Tehran Times
California, United States. Sunday May 18, 2008.

In reference to your story today “Iran busts CIA terror network” and the identification of the terrorists who executed the April 12, 2008 horrific bombing in Shiraz, the attention of your readers is drawn to the following letter from Project Humanbeingsfirst.org sent to the Associated Press for their deliberate obfuscating reporting of it – Letter to Editor: Iran, the Associated Press, and Covert-War of 'Imperial Mobilization' (URL: http://tinyurl.com/3pvotg).

This letter was obviously not printed by AP. Perhaps Tehran Times can print it in its entirety.

Your readers attention is also drawn to the following letter to the Iranian peoples and their leadership – Letter to Editor Press TV with a message to the Iranian Peoples (URL: http://tinyurl.com/6yp3mf), where it is noted:

The multi-faceted “full spectrum” covert warfare for the destabilization of Iran is surely known to the 'wretched of the earth' in Iran who continue to bear the brunt of it. ... If the Iranian leadership can publicly rise to the political challenges by at least openly acknowledging that they face a real threat of modern Iran being nuclear-wiped off the face of the earth back to the Stone Age, and that they also intimately understand the real diabolical premeditated motivations driving that very real threat, then they might at least begin to come up with some real self-defense that would have any deterrence teeth to it. ... There can be nothing of higher imperative for the nation of Iran and its peoples, than to astutely safeguard from becoming an Iraq – an equally ancient civilization that now lies in premeditated and diabolically orchestrated ruin.

Press TV did not publish this letter, perhaps due to the blunt un-sugared warnings contained therein:

It appears that it is the Iranian political leadership who, while asserting “Politicians do not deal with imaginary things”, are consistently “hallucinating” in their own imaginary conception of the reality du jour. While this may perhaps be calculated bravado, or some bizarre political ploy to deliberately appear moronic on the world stage, on the face of it, it betrays an asinine comprehension of the “real intention” of the Goliath of the world and the diabolical forces that are driving its “imperial mobilization”.

Iranian peoples and their leadership have to face up to the grotesque reality that is staring them in the face – it ain't pleasant. The latest press release by Project Humanbeingsfirst straightforwardly explains that grotesque reality and how to preempt it: Press Release The Only Solution to Avoid Total War May 15, 2008 (URL http://tinyurl.com/55h5v9), noting:

That deterrent solution-space, according to Project Humanbeingsfirst, is only in the forming of NATO-like Full Spectrum Alliances with an effective “Dr. Strangelove” type Samson Option that is publicly targeted at Israel and Western Europe as a declared self-defense nuclear doctrine, to construct the only viable and effective Deterrence: MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction)!

Perhaps Tehran Times can pick up the slack by publishing these letters and the press release.

Project Humanbeingsfirst humbly extends its deepest condolences – for what it's worth – to the families and loved ones of all the victims of “imperial mobilization”, everywhere!

Letter to Editor Tehran Times on 'Iran busts CIA terror network'

Celebrating Israel's 60th Birthday in the 60th year of the Nakba



Celebrating Israel's 60th Birthday in the 60th year of the Nakba


Zahir Ebrahim


May 15, 2008
(Footnote updating the record of festivities in Israel added May 20, 2008)


© Project HumanbeingsfirstTM. Permission granted to use freely as per copyright notice.

On the festive and felicitous occasion of the 60th anniversary of Israel's existence which is being celebrated with much fanfare from Tel Aviv to Washington D.C., President George W. Bush along with his notable wife landed at Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion airport on May 14, 2008, to the warm greetings of Shimon Perez:
“Welcome to the new Israel: Three thousand years old, and going on sixty”
President Bush effusively replied:
“Our two nations both faced great challenges when they were founded. And our two nations have both relied on the same principles to help us succeed. We built strong democracies to protect the freedoms given to us by an Almighty God”
Project HumanbeingsfirstTM would like to offer its humble contribution to the love-fest celebrations on Israel's 60th birthday by elaborating upon these “same principles to help us succeed”, beginning with the few chosen words of the late Israeli scholar Baruch Kimmerling, professor of sociology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, from his 2002 essay “My Holiday, Their Tragedy”:
As a Jew, an atheist and a Zionist, I have two memorial days in my country, Israel. One for the Holocaust and one for soldiers who fell in wars. I also have one day of celebration, the anniversary of the day Israel declared its statehood. ...
It is horrifying to realize that,despite the fact that the essence of the Holocaust was the genocide of the Jewish people, we tend to forget, induce oversight of, and even hide the fact that gypsies, the physically and mentally disabled, communists, priests, and Germans who opposed the Nazi regime were killed in extermination camps alongside Jews. The transformation of the Holocaust into a solely Jewish tragedy, as opposed to a universal event, only weakens its significance and its legitimacy, tarnishing us and the memory of the victims. Likewise, its unnecessary overuse by Jews in Israel and the rest of the world, particularly political bodies, has made the Holocaust banal. Above all, a provocative and dangerous approach has bought a place in our hearts: that Jews, as the victims of the Holocaust, are permitted to treat goyim however they want. Forceful and condescending, "anti-gentile-ism" is identical to criminal anti-Semitism. ...
The Jewish - Arab conflict, and the Jewish - Palestinian conflict in particular, has had many victims and caused great suffering. I admit that I am closer to the victims from my own people, for personal reasons and because of my familiarity and personal experience with many of them or members of their families. What can I do? A person is closer to his own friends, tribe, and people. ...
Independence Day is a holiday for me, but also an opportunity for intense self-introspection. A person needs a state and land, and this is my land, my homeland, despite the fact that I was not born here.
It is surely useful for those given to such deep introspection on this joyous celebratory occasion, to also reflect Kimmerling's expression “Independence Day is a holiday for me” – a profound sentiment that must be shared by all Israelis and their exponents – back to these remorseless 1943 words of Yitzhak Shamir, the equally profound affect of which, among other atrocities upon its indigenous peoples, deliberately harvested the cataclysm of the holocaust and European anti-semitism for the construction of 'Eretz Yisrael' in Palestine:
“Neither Jewish morality nor Jewish tradition can be used to disallow terror as a means of war, ... We are very far from any moral hesitations when concerned with the national struggle”.
Lest those living in the void of modernity and 'United We Stand' with the inexplicable 'WAR on TERROR' – which has of course been quite deliberately divorced from its imperial contexts – think that such terror doctrines being “far from any moral hesitations” were only an unfortunate aberration due to the tumultuous founding of 'Der Judenstaadt' in the aftermath of the holocaust in the otherwise vastly moral and lofty traditions of Zionism, it is also pertinent to recall these equally remorseless 1939 confessional words of Israel's first statesman uttered before the word 'holocaust' even existed:
“[In Internal discussions post 1936-1939 revolt of the Palestinian Arabs, David Ben-Gurion noted] let us not ignore the truth among ourselves ... politically we are the aggressors and they defend themselves ... The country is theirs, because they inhabit it, whereas we want to come here and settle down, and in their view we want to take away from them their country, while we are still outside. [Their revolt] is an active resistance by the Palestinians to what they regard as a usurpation of their homeland by the Jews. Behind the terrorism [i.e. the Palestinian Arab revolt] is a movement, which though primitive is not devoid of idealism and self-sacrifice.”
And lest one may think that this self-righteous 'ubermensch' attitude of 'god's chosen peoples' feeling entitled to forcibly occupy another's lands even while blatantly recognizing that “the country is theirs, because they inhabit it, whereas we want to come here and settle down, and in their view we want to take away from them their country” only existed pre-founding of 'the Jewish State' in Palestine, and that the modern democratic Zionist state of Israel represents the moral inheritance of Moses, the lofty Ten Commandments, and what is good in Judaism, rather than the inherently racist apartheid pariah state that it still is today no different from its original conception, it is further instructive to recall the systematic daily killing and oppression of the Palestinian peoples on their own lands at the hands of the 'Israeli Defense Forces' in these chauvinist 1983 words of the distinguished cockroach peddler and Chief of Staff of the IDF, Raphael Eitan:
“We declare openly that the Arabs have no right to settle on even one centimetre of Eretz Israel... Force is all they do or ever will understand. We shall use the ultimate force until the Palestinians come crawling to us on all fours.”
and
“When we have settled the land, all the Arabs will be able to do about it will be to scurry around like drugged cockroaches in a bottle.”
Not to stop there, the glorious state of Israel in its pursuit of the systematic terror doctrine for incremental conquest of 'Eretz Yisrael' that is openly and un-apologetically admitted to by generations of its Zionist leaders to be “far from any moral hesitations when concerned with the national struggle”, continually threatens what admittedly still remains a largely futile “active resistance ... which though primitive is not devoid of idealism and self-sacrifice” by its beleaguered indigenous peoples, with an even bigger holocaust sixty years into their Nakba, as unabashedly expressed earlier this year by Israel's current Deputy Defense Minister, former Maj. General of the IDF, Matan Vilnai:
“The more Qassam (rocket) fire intensifies and the rockets reach a longer range, they (the Palestinians) will bring upon themselves a bigger holocaust because we will use all our might to defend ourselves”.
The tortuous reality behind “all our might to defend ourselves” is the first imperial principle upon which many an empire has been constructed. As already succinctly expressed by Project Humanbeingsfirst in its Modernity Simplified exposition, and explained further in its humble letter to the American peoples, it is the quintessential First Principle of Conquest:
“If we don't have real enemies then we have to create or imagine some and yell 'we are being attacked'” in order to a) justify one's hegemonic barbarianism upon others; and b) motivate an unwilling plebeian peoples into sacrificing for the conquests of the ruling elite.
Israel is fortunate to have real enemies so they have to spend less time convincing the world that “we are being attacked”, compared to their sponsors who have had to diligently construct the elaborate dialectics of “Clash of Civilizations” and “Bin Laden” and “Al-Qaeeda” in order to fully exploit the opportunity of going from “Balance of Terror to Unilateral Terror” for the same purpose.
President George W. Bush of course, on his arrival in Tel Aviv to celebrate Israel's sixtieth birthday, was surely only referring to these very challenges and common recipe for success when he said: “Our two nations both faced great challenges when they were founded. And our two nations have both relied on the same principles to help us succeed.”
It was indeed also wondering about what these “same principles to help us succeed” in fact were that a young American peace activist from Olympia Washington, Rachel Corrie, had once gone to Palestine to uncover for herself – as she wrote in her last desperate emails to her mother in America from Rafah, Palestine, in 2003:
“Just want to write to my Mom and tell her that I'm witnessing this chronic, insidious genocide and I'm really scared, and questioning my fundamental belief in the goodness of human nature. This has to stop. I think it is a good idea for us all to drop everything and devote our lives to making this stop. I don't think it's an extremist thing to do anymore. I still really want to dance around to Pat Benatar and have boyfriends and make comics for my coworkers. But I also want this to stop. Disbelief and horror is what I feel. Disappointed. I am disappointed that this is the base reality of our world and that we, in fact, participate in it.”
The Israeli Jews too find themselves inextricably entrapped in this devilishly crafted Zionist “base reality of our world”, as expressed by the late Israeli renegade scholar, Tanya Reinhart, professor of linguistics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, in her 2002 book “How to end the war of 1948”:
“The state of Israel founded in 1948 following a war which the Israelis call the War of Independence, and the Palestinians call the Nakba - the catastrophe. A haunted, persecuted people sought to find a shelter and a state for itself, and did so at a horrible price to another people. During the war of 1948, more than half of the Palestinian population at the time - 1,380,000 people - were driven off their homeland by the Israeli army. Though Israel officially claimed that a majority of refugees fled and were not expelled, it still refused to allow them to return, as a UN resolution demanded shortly after 1948 war. Thus, the Israeli land was obtained through ethnic cleansing of the indigenous Palestinian inhabitants. This is not a process unfamiliar in history. Israel's actions remain incomparable to the massive ethnic cleansing of Native Americans by the settlers and government of the United states. Had Israel stopped there, in 1948, I could probably live with it. As an Israeli, I grew up believing that this primal sin our state was founded on may be forgiven one day, because the founder's generation was driven by the faith that this was the only way to save the Jewish people from the danger of another holocaust.”
What an astutely engineered modernity of the 'hectoring hegemons' – “the [grotesque] base reality of our world” – whose Orwellian cover is very effectively used for brain-washing the Israeli denizens by goading them into making their 'Alia' into Zionistan from their Diaspora around the world, and automatically handing them Israeli citizenship upon landing in order to offset the demographic imbalance. And subsequently, it is used for indoctrinating them into staying and keeping their allegiance to the Jewish State by smothering their inner sense of morality with “this primal sin our state was founded on may be forgiven one day”. The same Orwellian cover is also very effectively deployed for brain-washing and/or manipulating their leading Western exponents into institutionally supporting the Zionist enterprise by wielding pivotal influence over its many institutions from the Pentagon to the Congress to the World Bank to the media and Hollywood; authoring its many hegemonic policies in its various Jewish think-tanks, like the AEI and JINSA; controlling almost all its politicians across all political parties with influential lobby groups, like the AIPAC; to also controlling many of the Western European world leaders, presidents and prime ministers, from Sarkozy to Merkel (cached), who today bow and scrape at the heels of Zion, to enable constructing a Zion that will light up all the world.
This “base reality” is especially practiced with the skilled artfulness of an Edward Bernays' public relationing project upon the “populist democracy” in the most powerful and sole-superpower sugar-daddy of the Zionist pariah state, the United States of America, which herself descends into a fascist police state today to carry-on with her own devilishly crafted imperial mobilization plans in order to “birth-pang [the] New Middle East” for its convoluted clients-masters interests as the hired-hands du jour.
So as President George Bush suggests, “our two nations have both relied on the same principles to help us succeed”, what is indeed in common in the principle modus operandi between Israel incrementally and systematically expanding its conquest of 'Eretz Yisrael' by “waging wars by way of deception” in the name of fighting the terrorism of the recalcitrant Palestinians who refuse to obey the 1948 goyem's law propounded by Ben-Gurion, that “the old will die and the young will forget”, and the “imperial mobilization” for full spectrum dominance by the world's sole superpower in the name of fighting a synthetic 'World War IV' against a “Bin-Laden” clan sitting barefoot and cross-legged in the caves of the Hindu-Kush armed to the teeth with laptops, cell phones, airplane flying manuals, box cutter knives, and Pakistani 'loose nukes'?
This commemorative essay by Project Humanbeingsfirst, on the joyous and happy occasion of Israel's 60th anniversary of its forcible existence upon another's lands, dissects the above question as a humble gift of humanity to the conscionable Israeli peoples and their ardent exponents in the United States, Western and Eastern Europe, Russia, and elsewhere. The afore-stated question due to its mammoth import, begs restating again before answering it:
What is there in common between the Zionist quest for its “Lebensraum” in the Middle East that is oft referred to by its Biblical name as the 'Land of Canaan' which is thought to extend “from the Nile to the Euphrates” all the way to the Caspian – and the Zionist-neocon sponsored sole superpower's quest for “full spectrum dominance” which primarily aims to “Birth-pang the New Middle East” as essential pawns moves in its on-going power-plays for the control of Eurasia on 'the Grand Chessboard' en-route to world domination in the New World Order in which there is slated to be only “one centre of authority, one centre of force, one centre of decision-making. It is world in which there is one master, one sovereign”?
Apart from the obvious fact that they both share common exponents with tortuously common interests to pursue narrow misanthropic ideologies of conquest as the quintessential 'ubermenschen' du jour, they both also share what the first statesman-founder of 'Eretz Yisrael' had so diabolically summed up as the quintessential Machiavellian method of inducing “birth-pangs” in order to raise a new more 'superior' phoenix from deliberate plebeian (or goyem) ashes:
“what is inconceivable in normal times is possible in revolutionary times”.
Thus one can empirically observe this supremely criminal reality of “birth pang[ing] the new middle East”, as glibly noted by the erstwhile American Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice such that “whatever we do we have to be certain that we're pushing forward to the new Middle East not going back to the old one”; and the “Global Zone of Percolating Violence” as chalked out in a map by former American National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski to cleverly suggest the very same “birth pangs” in his own superior Straussian style; and the conquest of 'Eretz Yisrael' as contemplated by its generations of Zionist strategic thinkers, financiers, and political tacticians – all equitably sharing in uber-Zionist David Ben-Gurion's demonic strategy of requiring “revolutionary times” to make possible what would be “inconceivable in normal times”.
It is most essential for ordinary peoples not imbued with the lofty spirit of the “white mans burden” to attempt to fully comprehend this profound intellectual concept of the ruling elite that is so elegantly captured in this short pithy sentence, because its import is often cataclysmic. If one remains cognizant of this principle of conquest while evaluating Current Affairs and contemporaneously unfolding history, one may never get deceived by the various dog-and-pony shows constructed by the intellectual minions and circus clowns of empire despite the relative closeness in time – for the true architects and financiers of any “revolutionary times” are instantly brought into focus with this lens by simply searching for key beneficiaries on different time-scales and distilling them upwards to zoom into the power-apex pyramid. The supreme criminal bastards on the top, often with 'clean hands', are the prime-movers.
Any “imperial mobilization” today, in the glorious Age of Democracy, must require a concomitant “revolutionary times” as much as fish require water – for without the pretexts of endless wars against suitably demonized and ever threatening enemies, none of these ubermenschen's conquests at the expense of the 'lesser' dispensable peoples living in its paths, would ever be possible.
In the Western homelands among its “populist democracy”, it remains true that “Deception is the state of the mind; and the mind of the state”, and a veritable prerequisite for “imperial mobilization” when its ordinary peoples – the plebeians – are no longer imbued with the uber spirit of 'la mission civilisatrice'.
But for the 'unworthy' victims of imperial mobilization, the bullets to the head of their children and their bulldozed homes leave little need for deception and 'the endless trail of red herrings' that is continually spun to the populist democracies to get them to accept the atrocities of conquest in the name of “defend[ing] ourselves” against terrorism.
So when the enemy can naturally exist, as the Palestinians do, and whose indigenous lands and possessions are being systematically usurped, confiscated, and destroyed in the name of 'self-defense' by the transplanted Zionists, that actually helps automatically create the requisite “revolutionary times” needed to fully construct 'Eretz Yisrael'.
The Palestinians' natural act of self-defense, which though “primitive” and altogether futile against an overwhelmingly superior foe that is fully backed, militarily, financially, intellectually, and politically, by the world's sole superpower whose own policy instruments are also at the mercy of the same Zionists who use the more palatable euphemism of “neo-conservatives” for domestic consumption, the seeding of “revolutionary times” is a fait accompli not only in Palestine, but also in the United States! Thus it was no empty boast of Ariel Sharon to Shimon Perez in October 2001, in the aftermath of 911:
“Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that . . . I want to tell you something very clear: Don't worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it.
Wonderful stuff from the point of view of the Zionist leaders, despite some empty chairs on Shabbath in Tel Aviv – no differently from how some civilians were surely lost by the Anglo-Saxon 'White Man' to the scalp-hunting 'terrorist' Red Indians while settling their indigenous continent at the expense of remorselessly exterminating up to 10 million of them.
But what happens when the enemy does not naturally exist? It is fabricated into existence as a bootstrap, and greatly facilitated into becoming an 'enemy' to fight against in order to create the requisite “revolutionary times”. That is the entire underlying empirical underpinnings behind America's 'war on terror' since its 'new Pearl Harbor'. For without the '911' and the “sudden threat or challenge to the public's sense of well being”, as Zbigniew Brzezinski had astutely observed:
“It is also a fact that America is too democratic at home to be autocratic abroad. This limits the use of America's power, especially its capacity for military intimidation. Never before has a populist democracy attained international supremacy. But the pursuit of power is not a goal that commands popular passion, except in conditions of a sudden threat or challenge to the public's sense of domestic well-being. The economic self-denial (that is defense spending), and the human sacrifice (casualties even among professional soldiers) required in the effort are uncongenial to democratic instincts. Democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization.”
In either situation, whether the enemy is real or fabricated, since “revolutionary times” are what is being deliberately synthesized, the populist democracies must be diligently kept misinformed, uninformed, and continually disinformed by playing up the threat of the real or fabricated enemy (as the case may be), and suitably demonizing the “evil doers” while eulogizing their handful of 'worthy' victims, so that the populist democracies might acquiesce to the enemies' extermination with extreme prejudice.
The New York Times April 20, 2008 exposé of the Pentagon seeding retired military generals into America's television newsrooms to sell its unpopular wars to the public is merely the disingenuous tip of the ice-berg. All popular television news media and all mainstream presses not only in the United States but also in Western Europe, are now dominated by exponents of Israel who simultaneously bleep the “War on Terrorism” mantra to keep moving both overlapping “imperial mobilization” agendas forward.
The extreme projection of barbaric imperial power with overwhelming “shock and awe” upon civilian populations and anemically armed foes who are unable to realistically challenge the world's armed to the teeth colossus, then unsurprisingly constructs the controlled chaos, the random terror bombings, the F-16 retaliations and counter suicide strikes, the check-points and starvation, sanctions and deprivation, and eventual shattering of tabula rasa of the innocent with concomitant lust for revenge, and hence the cycle of more self-sustaining natural enemies – the “revolutionary times” – and thusly, new settlements in the Land of Canaan as well as new military bases in Asia go up along with a healthy rise in defense spending for the acquisition of new death toys-N-things!
This self-sustaining non-linear system of “revolutionary times”, once deftly primed into motion with elaborate doctrinal state-craft, then continually enables new countries to be set-up for “revolutionary times”. We have already publicly witnessed “Operation Infinite Justice” and “Operation Iraqi Freedom”. Operations Irani Freedom, Pakistani Freedom, Lebanon Freedom, Syria Freedom, et. al., perhaps with ever changing covert names, are already past the setup phases, and mainly only awaiting some catastrophic catalyzing events to further embroil most of ASIA in Perpetual and Total War!
Thus empire-building is effectively enabled contrary to all the “democratic instincts” and can proceed at full pace in the exercise of its unfettered “capacity for military intimidation”, easily dragging the otherwise vociferously recalcitrant and peaceable peoples into the wake of its turbulent vortex 'United We Stand' due to the raw shock-effect of the “revolutionary times”.
The 911 was one such democracy-mobilizing “revolutionary times”.
And one might well wonder what kind of empire-building this is in which the United States treasury is going bankrupt amidst soaring profits of its military-industrial complex partners while simultaneously descending its populist republic into a draconian police state, and in the process, also acquiring for itself the ignoble curse as the global predatory pariah state which needs to be countered by the 'lesser' nations uniting together in “Full Spectrum Alliances” as done throughout the pages of history against other predators? The in-depth examination of this question which is the essence of the New World Order is done elsewhere (for instance, see “The Re-Gathering Storm” and “A Strategy of Tension in Pakistan Part2: The forces that drive them”; the analysis by Richard Cook lends some additional insights into how some Westerners who are opposed to the New World Order view it). The focus on this felicitous day however is forensically understanding the modus operandi that is common to all “imperial mobilizations”.
Therefore, as those given to even a modicum of reflection can almost trivially predict for the fate of the poor 'enemy' during these “revolutionary times”, we empirically witness a systematic effort to both malign Islam as the elegantly fabricated doctrinal enemy that enables an entire lifetime of “World War IV” to be fought against using the wonderful mantra of “Clash of Civilizations”, and an alive Palestinian struggling in the self-defense of his home and property as the already existential, stone throwing, suicide bombing terrorist to defend poor Israel against.
Indeed, Daniel Pipes does great work on both counts when he delectably asserts almost a century later “[It is] Not a Clash of Civilizations, It's a Clash between the Civilized World and Barbarians”, in unremarkable plagiarism of similar projection by the founder of 'Der Judenstaadt' himself as he eloquently sold the concept of creating Zionistan in Palestine to the imperialists of his time suggesting to them that “We can be the vanguard of culture against barbarianism”.
Lest the well-fed peoples in the “populist democracy” ever begin to ask their politicians at election time why military and economic aid is being freely doled out to an armed to the teeth occupying power in the Middle East that is destroying indigenous civilian infrastructures, homes, orchards, farms, water wells, shooting children in the eyes and head, confiscating the indigenous lands and water supplies, and building their own European settlements in place of destroyed indigenous properties, constructing giant 14-18 feet tall concrete walls to close-in the indigenous peoples into what in any other place and under any other jack-boots would aptly be described as giant open-air prison camps, concentration camps, and bantustans – it is only the barbarians being contained!
Indeed, lest the most fair minded among the “populist democracy” with an eye for perspective, begin to rationally ponder what crimes had the Palestinian peoples committed upon the Jews that their indigenous continuously inhabited lands were gratuitously granted to the European Zionist aspirants by the European imperialist powers in compensation, or why was there an occupier in what little was left to the Palestinians in the first place – it is only the barbarians being tamed by the “vanguard of culture”.
And before some begin asking the first commonsensical question that even arises in the mind of an average Kindergartner when he or she innocently learns of the troubles in Palestine, that why the anachronistic and racist apartheid state in the modernity of today could not be dismantled like South Africa and transformed into one fair democratic state for all its indigenous peoples, Jews, Christians, and Muslims alike?
And before the next logical followup question comes to their mind, that if a Jews–only homeland had to be forcibly allocated for 'god's chosen ubermenschen', why could it not be done in Europe (or America) or Russia from where the majority of the Zionist transplants into Palestine hailed?
For after all, it was Germany that did the Holocaust! And it was the American bankers and corporations that financed Hitler! And it was the Christian Europe that persecuted the Jews throughout their 2000 year history of Diaspora. Shouldn't the Christian folks duly bear the burden of restitution to the Jews? And if the Jews demand their compensation, and an innocent third party – the Palestinian people – is apportioned to pay it, who will pay the restitution to the Palestinians when their day finally comes too?
Before all these questions ever arise in any “populist democracy”, perhaps it is best that these “barbarians” are eradicated or resettled elsewhere as the “final solution” to the question of Palestine! Ex post facto, let the entire world proudly know the true grotesque “base reality” – for that ain't gonna get the land back to any remaining 'Red Indians'!
President George W. Bush don't sound so dyslexic C student from Yale no more – indeed he sounds rather perceptive in his candid observation: “Our two nations both faced great challenges when they were founded. And our two nations have both relied on the same principles to help us succeed. We built strong democracies to protect the freedoms given to us by an Almighty God”.
Asking any child in sixth grade, when he or she first learns of the genocide of the native Americans, whether she might do anything to prevent it if that was happening today, what do you think might her answer be? What if these sixth graders were told about this ongoing genocide in Palestine, and instead of tours of the Holocaust museum in Washington D.C., they were taken on tours through the unholy land of oppression? And instead of reading the Diary of Anne Frank in eighth grade, they were assigned to read Rachel Corrie's letters to her mother from Palestine, or asked to compare the two in class discussions?
Asking of such uncomfortable questions by the mainstream upon being exposed to the grotesque “base reality of our world” that is institutionally camouflaged by clever Orwellian spins like “We built strong democracies to protect the freedoms given to us by an Almighty God”, can only put a monkey-wrench in the imperial scheme of things, especially if it creates popular mass protests and shut-down strikes as in the case of the Vietnam War!
And thus, ensuring that such questions are never raised by the plebeian masses in the Western Hemisphere, Israel's 60th birthday will likely be celebrated with much gusto in many of its Western Capitals today, with President Bush already enjoying the love–fest in Tel Aviv.
Happy 60th Birthday from Project Humanbeingsfirst on behalf of the lowly 'barbarians'!





[Footnote May 20, 2008] It is known to be customary to celebrate independence day with much mirth, joyous merry-making, firecrackers, and bonfires. The “New Israel” which excitedly welcomed the fervent Evangelical Christian American President, George W. Bush Jr., and his fair lady, to its holy lands for three days of love-fest and merriment, the moment their guests departed, lit the brightest bonfires to continue on with its “Three thousand years old, and going on sixty” traditional celebrations, as reported today by the Tel Aviv based Hebrew language Daily, Maariv, the second largest in Israel. “Orthodox Jews set fire to hundreds of copies of the New Testament in the latest act of violence against Christian missionaries in the Holy Land. The books were dumped into a pile and set afire in a lot near a synagogue. The Israeli Maariv daily reported Tuesday that hundreds of Jewish religious school students took part in the book-burning. Israeli authorities and Orthodox Jews frown on missionary activity aimed at Jews”, observed DAWN, MSNBC, IHT, all headlining it “Orthodox Jewish youths burn New Testaments in Israel” and narrating from the Associated Press supplied rendition of events. There were no BBC television news cameras on hand to record the bonfires as there usually are when some DVDs featuring scantily clad women are put to the torch by “islamofascists”. Too bad the First Family of the United States of America, Der Judenstaadt's primal benefactors, did not stay a few extra days to witness the full spectrum love-fest that perhaps awaits the rest of Christendom as 'god's chosen peoples' are grown into the “Zion that will light up all the world”! How can the lowly, deftly cultivated “islamofascist” pirates ever hope to hold a candle up to this naturally occurring light of Judeofascism? Perhaps the greatest “Western Scholar of Islam” and the “Middle East” in the United States of America, Daniel Pipes, Bernard Lewis, David Horowitz, et. al., can explain it to the Christian President of the United States whose most sacred Holy Book, and that of approx. 2 Billion other Christians, was just desecrated by the most fervent Jews in Zionistan!
