 screenhunter_29_oct._26_22.46_150GAZA ISN’T ABOUT ISRAELI SECURITY


by Jeff Gates, Staff Writer

VeteransToday.com – Israeli officials are right to worry. Gazans too. Yet Americans should worry even more.Israel’s “legitimacy” will not last.

Of course, that assumes its legitimacy was deserved. That issue also is now called into question in light of the consistency of Israeli behavior over the past six decades. The emerging issues are these: When and how will the recognition of Israel’s nation-state status be withdrawn? How will Tel Aviv behave in the interim?


Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman may have tipped his Masada hand when he reportedly told Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan that Israel may use nuclear weapons against Gaza. The threat to Israel is not the 1.5 million Gazans who reside in the world’s largest open-air prison. The threat is the fast-growing global outrage at the abuse inflicted on Palestinians, commencing with the ethnic cleansing of 400-plus villages six decades ago.

Not since 1948 has this enclave of extremists mounted such a public relations offensive. Christian Zionist President Harry Truman trusted Jewish Zionist lobbyists when he solicited assurances that they would not become what they immediately became: a racist theocratic state with an expansionist agenda destined to create serial crises in the region.

zionism-apartheidThe merciless global agenda pursued by Colonial Zionists is the single greatest threat to world peace, as confirmed yet again by Lieberman’s warning. As the primary remaining ally of these Jewish nationalists, the risks to the U.S. increase with each passing day as Tel Aviv works behind the scenes to catalyze yet another conflict. This entangled alliance was destined to provoke resentments that would eventually endanger their super power ally and foremost arms provider.

Khaled Sheikh Mohammed, the confessed mastermind of the mass murder of 9-11, conceded that the motivation for that attack was to focus “the American people…on the atrocities that America is committing by supporting Israel against the Palestinian people and America’s self-serving foreign policy that corrupts Arab governments and leads to further exploitation of the Arab Muslim people.

The Joint Chiefs of Staff warned Truman 61 years ago that this militant enclave meant to establish Jewish military and economic hegemony over the entire Middle East. Familiar with the duplicity for which Israel has since become infamous, the Pentagon chiefs warned:

 “All stages of this program are equally sacred to the fanatical concepts of the Jewish leaders.” 

Nuclear-Armed Fanatics 

With each passing year, Tel Aviv adds a new chapter to the agent provocateur handbook on How To Succeed as a Victim. Israel’s strategic success traces directly to its capacity to radicalize and enrage—as those residing in the Occupied Territories endure a third generation of deprivation, degradation and periodic starvation.

Thus the in-depth planning that preceded Israel’s brutal “defensive” assault on Gaza between Christmas 2008 and the inauguration of Barack Obama—who said nothing about the attack throughout its 28-day duration. That silence continues even now after Richard Goldstone, a South African jurist, issued a report describing dozens of Israeli war crimes and evidence of crimes against humanity.

In the lead-up to the report’s release, a U.S. president gave Tel Aviv a rhetorical gift when, in a U.N. speech, the nation’s first Black president used the code phrase “Jewish state” as an implied endorsement of the apartheid policies of this racist enclave.

nukegazaEven Truman did not go that far. But then his administration was not as thoroughly staffed with Zionists and pro-Israelis. In addition to killing some 1400 Palestinians, one-third of them women and children, Israel destroyed the infrastructure of Gaza including farmlands, factories and schools as well as its water supply and sanitation works.

The facts in the Goldstone Report were further confirmed by “Breaking the Silence”—the personal testimony by thirty members of the Israel Defense Forces who described a murderous policy meant to teach the people of Gaza a lesson for their support of Hamas—which came to power in 2006 elections that were universally appraised as free and fair. 

As Israel’s protector and apologist, the U.S. bears the brunt of the anger as Israeli extremism continues to enrage Muslims and radicalize the Islamic body politic.

A systematic assassination campaign ensured that Tel Aviv had “no one to talk to” except known collaborators with the occupation authorities in Tel Aviv and their arms suppliers in Washington.

 Meanwhile, the steady expansion of Israeli settlements made a Palestinian state impossible—unless indigenous Arabs are happy to reside in an archipelago of isolated ghettos ringed by Israeli checkpoints. To suggest that the U.S. is culpable only states the obvious.

Yet Israeli extremism continues unabated even as Tel Aviv insists that its neighbors accept it as a “Jewish state” even before its borders are fixed and resolution of the occupied territories is known. After six decades of nonstop deceit, Arab states are understandably reluctant to further appease this “state.”

For Americans endangered by the behavior of Jewish fanatics, the lesson is uncomfortable but inescapable: we enabled this.  By our continued appeasement, Barack Obama is inviting another violent reaction to Israel’s serial provocations. By failing to endorse the Goldstone Report, our commander-in-chief is putting U.S. forces at risk.

By implying that Israel is above the law, he only emboldens Tel Aviv. By suggesting that Israeli conduct is consistent with the values of a “Jewish state,” he endangers the broader Jewish community. That includes those moderate Jews who anticipated this extremist behavior when in May 1948 Truman overruled the strategic objections of Secretary of State George C. Marshall and enabled this fanaticism by extending nation-state recognition. 

Small in numbers but large in ambition, this extremist enclave had no choice but to wage war by way of deception. The most insidious deceit was targeted, from within, at its purported ally to induce the U.S. military to lead an invasion of Iraq for its Greater Israel strategy.

Absent an Israeli strategy able to sustain serial crises, a long-deceived public will awaken to the common source of the fixed intelligence that led us into the last war—and now seeks to induce the next.  As Americans awaken to how this duplicity proceeds in plain sight, they will see for themselves who and why.

That knowledge is the threat that Tel Aviv most fears. As the facts become known, Israeli legitimacy will no longer be an issue. The only issue will be how best to dis-arm these extremists and how to hold accountable those lawmakers who enable this ongoing treason.

    “the ancient Greek philosopher Socrates taught his students that the pursuit of truth can only begin once they start to question and analyze every belief that they ever held dear. If a certain belief passes the tests of evidence, deduction, and logic, it should be kept. If it doesn’t, the belief should not only be discarded, but the thinker must also then question why he was led to believe the erroneous information in the first place. Not surprisingly, this type of teaching didn’t sit well with the ruling elite of Greece. ” By Dr. Albert D Pastore Phd. From http://whatreallyhappened.com/WRHARTICLES/stf1.html?q=stf1.html

    Mega-Millionaire, Jimmy Walter, Offers $100,000 Reward For Scientific Proof that the WTC Towers Collapsed As Bush Administration Claims.

    http://www.NAFCASH.com offers $10000 REWARD for locating JUST ONE of the alleged “HUGE MASS GRAVES” of Treblinka.

    Don’t waste your time analyzing the evil done by the many tentacles of the beast. I think you should get to the core, the source of the problem. Attack at the heart of the beast. There are few things in this world that can be assessed scientifically and unemotionally and shown to be true or false. An extremely recent historical event that resulted in the death and burial of millions of individuals in a ditch no bigger than a few feet wide is one such easily provable thing. To prove this in 1945 at the Nuremberg trials the US and British forces showed two shrunken heads, one “tattooed human skin lamp shade”, a bar of “human soap”, a half dozen paid “eye witnesses”, confessions of a few half way to death tortured German officers, and a few other such odd items. All the items shown in the Nuremberg trials have now been scientifically and logically shown to have been nothing more than lies and the eye witnesses were shown to have contradicted themselves and gotten lost in their own lies. In 2009 the leader of Israel, Mr. Netanyahu, with his access to all the data, evidence, and historical materials of the WWII camps comes to the UN and shows a map of one of the Camps as proof. We are told that there are Mountains of evidence, Mountains of documents that clearly, precisely, and unambiguously prove the deliberate killings of the Jews using specific chemicals at those camps. No not a drawer full, not an ant hill, but Mountains of documents that clearly prove this evil act. Of this Mountains of documents, after years of research, Mr. Netanyahu finally finds one document in 2009, at the age “Photoshop”, and brings this definite irrefutable proof to the UN floor. I urge you the readers to check out the history of that document shown by Mr. Netanyahu. It was found and labeled as proof in the 1970s. Soon after that “JEWISH” historians from Israel as well as others examined and labeled it as FAKE. Not that it was not a map; it was. But it was a map of somewhere else showing something else that had nothing to do with killing people. Kind of like showing the map of restaurants in Miami and saying that this is the map of Gas chambers in New York City used to kill the Jews, and that is why there are so few Jews in the New York City. Lets say we continue to believe the gas chamber killing stories of the “first” and the second world war, it would be really nice if someone could show an actual scientific proof of the darn thing. Any proof would do, just as long as we can all point to it and say “Aha” finally there it is the irrefutable proof. Note that after the war, we the US, Britain, and Israel came to own the German materials. We have the German typewriters, the German codes, the German ink ribbons and ink bottles, the German paper, the German printing press, the German Top secret governmental stamps, and we even have their German secretaries. Surely in 60 years we can fabricate some half decent “proof” document that at least fools the Jewish historians!!!

    Israeli ‘thought Police’ Declare All Out War On The Web

    “The Foreign Ministry unveiled a new plan this week: Paying talkbackers to post pro-Israel responses on websites worldwide. A total of NIS 600,000 (roughly $150,000) will be earmarked to the establishment of an “Internet warfare” squad.

    The Foreign Ministry intends to hire young people who speak at least one language and who study communication, political science, or law – or alternately, Israelis with military experience gained at units dealing with information analysis.

    Beyond the fact that these job requirements reveal a basic lack of understanding in respect to the dynamics of the online discourse – the project’s manager argued that “adults don’t know how to blog” – they are not too relevant either. An effective talkbacker does not need a law degree or military experience. He merely needs to care about the subject he writes about.

    The sad truth is that had Israeli citizens believed that their State is doing the right thing, they would have made sure to explain it out of their own accord. Without being paid.

    Foreign Ministry officials are fighting what they see as a terrible and scary monster: the Palestinian public relations monster. Yet nothing can be done to defeat it, regardless of how many foolish inventions will be introduced and how many bright communication students will be hired.

    The reason is that good PR cannot make the reality in the occupied territories prettier. Children are being killed, homes are being bombed, and families are starved. Yet nonetheless, the Foreign Ministry wants to try to change the situation. And they have willing partners. “Where do I submit a CV?” wrote one respondent. “I’m fluent in several languages and I’m able to spew forth bullshit for hours on end.”

      Thanks for taking the time to comment. This is Information Age warfare. Why would anyone expect it to be other that it is, particularly the role of mainstream media in assisting the perpetrators in displacing facts with what “the mark” (us) can be deceived to believe. For how long has the behavior of the species been manipulated by those masterful at manipulating thoughts and emotions? The only thing modern about this duplicity is the modern means for deceiving on a global scale.

    • Jeff Gates  October 31, 2009 at 2:30 pm

      This comment sounds like a guilt-by-association ploy. Have you read Guilt By Association? If not, please go to the Criminal State website where there are several excerpts and lots of op-eds on the “how” of this systemic duplicity. You’ll also find a chapter in the book precisely on this point titled “The New Anti-Semitism” — i.e., the attempt to dismiss any criticism of Israeli policy no matter how extreme. The culprit here is extremism. Moderate Jews are thrilled at the analysis. They would rightly be concerned by those who would attempt to conceal the real facts by making guilt-by-association charges such as this. “Sounds like” is the domain of the dumb. Get familiar with the confirmed facts and then share with the vets an informed opinion.

  4. Jeff Gates  October 29, 2009 at 3:42 pm

    Thanks for your comment. Those responsible for serial well-timed crises rely on agent provocateur behavior to ensure that others are seen as the aggressors. In game theory-modeled warfare, the reaction of “the mark” (aka us) to a well planned orchestration becomes predictable – within an acceptable range of probabilities. And, yes, you are correct: then the “problem” disappears and the responder becomes the problems — as with our invasion of Iraq. We are now the aggressors yet the Greater Israel policy is the key beneficiary. And, yes, unless we face the facts and fix this entangled alliance, we will continue to be perceived as hostile to the Muslim world and them to us. Those chronicled in Guilt By Association specialize in pitting two sides against the middle (e.g., The Clash of Civilizations) while profiting off the misery of both. The only modern aspect of this mental and emotional manipulation is the technological means to deceive on a global scale. As for those people whose political careers are produced by this trans-generational criminal syndicate, please see the response above for a description of how those complicit often operate through “assets” and a vast cadre of sayanim (Hebrew for volunteers). Israel has already lost; Tel Aviv just cannot yet acknowledge it. Nor can those in positions of power who continue to give aid and comfort to this enemy within. As Shakespeare put it best: the truth will out. Those most hurt by this psychopathology disguised as a nation-state are not only the obvious—our troops and those we are induced to kill for others—but also moderate Jews, including those who in 1948 urged that we not recognize these fanatics as a “state.” Albert Einstein and other brilliant Jews were candid in their assessment. In a December 1948 letter to the editor featured in The New York Times, they said: “This bears the unmistakable stamp of a Fascist party for whom terrorism (against Jews, Arabs and British alike), and misrepresentation are means and a leader state the goal.”

  5. Kristoffer  October 29, 2009 at 2:06 pm

    First off, really good article.

    Second: This is the tragic truthe, israel is the aggresior in most of the conflicts and when they are accused of this. They hide under the “you are a nazi” blanket and then the problem dissapears and I become the aggressor.

    The fact is that this will prolly in some near future result in a major conflict where israel is bound to loose. I dont have any problems with jews in general, just that they have a tendancy to put retarded people at possitions of power.

  6. Jeff Gates  October 29, 2009 at 1:11 pm

    Certainly it will fascinating to isolate the source of this latest scare. I gather that a laboratory was the source of the hoof-and-mouth disease that devastated the U.K. economy a few years back. If, as the confirmed facts suggest, war is being waged on the U.S. by an enemy within, prudence suggests that one remain open to the possibility of a multifaceted assault.

  7. Tempus Mutantis  October 28, 2009 at 11:57 am

    The way to not be an accomplish in the Khazars crimes would be for USA to build a wall around ISIS-RA-EL, stop all supplies including food, stop the water from entering it, have snipers target babies-and everybody else, bomb them with sulphur and depleted uranium and have check-points everywhere.AND to imprison the traitors who have usurped the US government. Nuking is too fast.

    • Jeff Gates  October 29, 2009 at 1:06 pm

      When served lemons, make lemonade. Others have mentioned the possibility of using the Apartheid Wall (aka the Separation Fence) as a means to contain this phenomenon. Rather than keeping Palestinians out, use the wall and the guard tower as a means to enable the oppressed to keep the oppressors contained. An interesting new way to frame the problem. And potentially a way to meet the post-Cold War challenge of containment.

    I voted Obama, in part because the Jerusalem Post hated him.

    Silly me… another false flag operation.

    The bloom was off that rose for me with his first appointment of Rahm Emanuel….

    It seems Barack [yes we can] Obama sold his soul to the Jews to get a media pass for the duration of the campaign.

    America is still Sobibor West – with a Jew in every watch tower.

    When the Nobel committee gave him the Peace Prize… I hoped it was to give legitimacy to his resistance to Jewish control over foreign policy.

    If that were the case, we’ve sure seen no sign of a backbone in the man.

    He seems content to bring medicare to the masses …. as a first term goal.

    It makes one ask… how much of a majority do Progressives have to garner to thwart the many games of Congress?

    My fear is that the left postures against the war… but the business of war is just too lucrative for the monsters who control our governors.

    So long as Obama is reviled in Israel…. I keep a glimmer of hope alive… but Jews will always be Jews…. and you cannot read their tea leaves without an official translator….. vermin that they are.

    • Jeff Gates  October 28, 2009 at 11:34 am

      Obama’s political career is a product of West Side Chicago Ashkenazim with roots that trace directly back to organized crime of the 1920s through the Pritzker and Crown (Krinsky) clans. He is what is known as an “asset” (see description below). AND that does not mean he could not become a terrific, even a transformative, president. But first he will need to wake up and realize that he would not be where he is but for this trans-generational syndicate. Unless he makes that shift prior to traveling to Oslo to receive the Nobel peace prize, the Norwegians will be complicit in enabling an “asset” of those who are the most sophisticated war-mongers with which the human species has been forced to contend. I object to your generalization about Jews. Many Jews are appalled by the behavior epitomized by the “state” of Israel. Many Jews are outspoken in their objections and working for change. To paint with such a broad brushstroke only feeds the ability of those complicit to deflect criticism with claims of anti-Semitism. Suggest you stick tightly to the facts and to evidence able to isolate HOW this deceit operates in plain sight. Here’s the description of asset from Guilt By Association, also available on the Criminal State website in an excerpt (“Introduction”): • Assets are people profiled such that, within an acceptable range of probabilities, they can be relied upon to behave consistent with their personality profile. Assets lack the state of mind required for criminal culpability because they lack the conscious intent to commit a crime. Nevertheless, they can contribute to a criminal operation simply by pursuing their subconscious personal needs, typically for recognition, influence, money, sex, drugs or ideology.

      Put a profiled asset in a pre-staged time, place and circumstance (such as a presidency) and psy-ops specialists can be confident that—within an acceptable range of probabilities—an asset will behave consistent with their profile, much as Bill Clinton behaved with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. Just as Christian Zionist presidents from Harry Truman to G.W. Bush were reliable and pliable advocates for pro-Israeli policies, the consistency of a candidate’s conduct confirms his or her qualifications as a pro-Israeli asset.

    These guys have been screwing you for years. Most Americans haven’t heard of the USS Liberty outrage. They were trying to get the USA to go to war with Egypt.

    • jeff Gates  October 28, 2009 at 10:49 am

      If you’ll look on the Criminal State website, you’ll see a chapter excerpt from Guilt By Association that addresses the USS Liberty situation and the key role played in it by the admiral father of Senator John McCain and, more recently, by the Arizona Senator when he endorsed a cover-up. The chapter is titled “McCain Family Secret: The Cover-up.” How many Americans realize that our Commander-in-Chief at the time (Lyndon Johnson) was having his needs serviced by Mathilde Krim, the wife of the largest fundraiser for the party that LBJ then headed? And that Mathilde was a former Irgun operative, the terrorist gang that oversaw the ethnic cleansing of 400-plus Palestinian villages? How many Americans realized that she was in the White House the night the 1967 war broke out? Do you think the Monica Lewinsky scandal was an isolated event? How old/ancient is this modus operandi? I live in Arizona, a state that has been run by organized crime since at least the 1920s when Gus Greenbaum was its overseer. When he moved to Las Vegas after Murder, Inc. killed Bugsy Seigel who was caught skimming the casino skim, Kemper Marley took over. His statewide liquor monopoly traces directly to Prohibition-era Bronfman clan distillers, founders/funders of the World Jewish Congress. When Kemper had federal liquor law problems, the two Hensley brothers, both employees, took the heat. That’s when Jim Hensley came into the Anheuser-Busch distributorship, a license to print money. His daughter, 18 years the junior of John McCain, “met” this former POW with an electable CV. Playing consistent with his profile, he and she hit it off. He soon ended his marriage, moved here and was put into the House four years before Goldwater’s anticipated retirement from the Senate. McCain is a classic asset – driven by unfulfilled needs and a nontransparent agenda. In this 2008 race for the presidency, the GOP silenced several senators who candidly conceded what everyone knows: he is far too unstable serve as president. Even serving as a Senator is a stretch but then that’s why he’s there. Keep in mind his inseparable companion was Jewish Zionist Senator Joe Lieberman in the post-911 environment where they were the lead cheerleaders for the invasion of Iraq. When an informed public grasps — really grasps — HOW this psy-ops works in plain sight, they will see how this duplicity begins with the betrayal of the self. On that score, John McCain will be the poster boy for treason in the modern era. When the list of key enablers is compiled, he will be highly ranked.

    Each Israeli receives 15,000$ of our tax money each year while the USA is in debt 38K for each citizen. Does that make any sense ? Also consider Israel has been caught spying on the US, selling high value nuclear secrets, more than all other countries of the world combined. Yet we never hear about it unless we dig through international news. I wonder why. Media consolidation must be stopped. Regulation needs to begin again so as to stop the monopolization of the media.

    • jeff Gates  October 28, 2009 at 10:09 am

      Defense Secretary Robert Gates (no relation) coined a terrific descriptive term to describe the most troublesome combatants when waging unconventional warfare. He calls them simply “the people in between.” Thus the strategic necessity for Zionists and pro-Israelis to exert such dominance in media. In a system of governance based on informed consent, it’s essential to Israel’s success that their operatives put a barrier between a target population (such as the U.S.) and the real facts. That’s HOW you displace facts with what “the mark” can be deceived to believe. Thus the role, for example, of Wolf Blitzer who served 17 years with The Jerusalem Post and also served as an editor of Near East Report, the in-house journal of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (i.e., the Israel lobby). He even wrote a book on Israeli super-spy Jonathan Pollard, the fellow who stole more than one million classified documents. Likewise Judith Miller at the New York Times who parroted the fixed intelligence from Ahmad Chalabi, the Iraqi liar who was recruited by Richard Perle & Co two decades ago to ensure a “reliable” source to induce us to invade Iraq in response to the mass murder of 9-11. In theory, the airwaves belong to the American public. That’s why federal rules ensure that no one person can monopolize outlets. Yet what good does that do if those who own the outlets share the same undisclosed bias — which is what we now face. The inescapable reality is that this is how warfare is waged in the Information Age. Why would anyone expect it to be otherwise? Without exception, “the people in between” in this essential domain are Zionists and/or pro-Israeli. The Framers were very clear about the centrality of media in maintaining the informed populace required for informed consent. By dominating that “in between” domain, mainstream media enables high treason — in plain sight. As people grasp “how” this duplicity proceeds in plain sight, they will see for themselves who and why. At present, governments committed to systems of informed choice (aka liberty) are steadily losing ground, particularly here in the so-called bastion of freedom.

    If Israel is such a good friend of the U.S., why is it that about every six months an Israel undercover agent shows up spying for his country in the United States. I do not trust Israel.

    • Jeff Gates  October 28, 2009 at 9:56 am

      And that’s just the ones that become apparent. The real problem is much, much deeper. The Israelis are very candid about how they operate. I post below an excerpt from Guilt By Association explaining the key force-multiplying impact of sayanim, a Hebrew word denoting volunteers — who are riddled throughout the government at the federal, state and local level. You’ll find on the Criminal State website the introduction to Guilty By Association, the first release in the Criminal State series, where you’re find an extended explanation of HOW Israel wages war on the U.S. in plain sight — from within. Here’s an excerpt explaining what is, in effect, a reserve army:

      • Sayanim (singular sayan) play an essential support role. Hebrew for volunteers or helpers, sayanim are shielded from culpability by being told only enough to perform their narrow role. Though they may play an essential task in the commission of a far broader crime, these volunteers could pass a polygraph test because Mossad recruiters ensure they are kept ignorant of the intended result.

      Akin to military reservists, sayanim are activated when their skills are required to support Israeli operations. They agree to remain “on call” for missions they believe are in the best interest of Israel. In effect, sayanim operate as a cost-effective undercover corps. When not engaged in an operation, they gather and report intelligence useful to Israel. The assistance of sayanim may be logistics, medical care or intelligence gathering. Sayanim also operate as the people in between in legislative bodies worldwide. Morris Amitay, a former executive director of the Israel lobby (AIPAC), explains:

      There are a lot of guys at the working level up here [on Capitol Hill]…who happen to be Jewish, who are willing…to look at certain issues in terms of their Jewishness…These are all guys who are in a position to make the decision in these areas for those senators…You can get an awful lot done just at the staff level.

      As federal grand juries are impaneled to identify and indict the people in between who are involved in this trans-generational operation, how many sayanim should the Federal Bureau of Investigation expect to identify? No one knows. Former Mossad case officer Victor Ostrovsky wrote in 1990 that the Mossad had 7,000 sayanim on which it could rely in London alone. If that volunteer population is divided by London’s 1990 population of 6.8 million, sayanim then represented one-tenth of one percent of the population of that capital city.

      If the capital of the United States is, say, four times more important to Israel’s geopolitical goals than the capital of the United Kingdom, does that mean the FBI should expect four times more sayanim per capita in Washington, D.C.? What about sayanim in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Atlanta, Boston, Cleveland, Denver, Phoenix, Minneapolis, Chicago, Philadelphia, Houston, St. Louis, San Diego, Seattle, Tampa? No one knows. And Tel Aviv is unlikely to volunteer the information.

  12. Rose  October 27, 2009 at 8:16 pm

    Legally Israel owes the US Billions they have been fraudulently taking money for years.
    This coming year they will also receive almost $3 billion US tax payers money.
    Most is for weapons and military. $25 million is for settlements. Which means bulldozing more Palestinian homes then building more for settlers.
    I hate to be the one to say it but they have also already radiated Gaza. They used Bunker Busters which have radiation in them and I can bet they used DU as well.
    The UN Mission report didn’t have anything about it.
    They never tested for radiation and there should be testing done.

    • Jeff Gates  October 28, 2009 at 9:44 am

      It’s considerably worse than what you suggest. The out-of-pocket outlays are miniscule in comparison to the “but for” costs in both blood and treasure. Would we have this war in the Middle East but for this entangled alliance? Many veterans shed blood in Europe, Korea, Vietnam and elsewhere in the name of freedom. What would be the status of that hard-earned credibility but for this “special relationship.” Nobel economist Joe Stiglitz puts the cost of the current war at $3 trillion, keeping in mind that every cent has been borrowed, suggesting some $700 billion in just interest costs alone — paid to whom (the wealthy and the Chinese government?). Any injured vet knows the deferred costs. The suicide rate is likely to be some multiple that of Vietnam, particularly when today’s veterans finally awaken to the long obvious fact that a purported ally deceive us to wage their war for an expansionist agenda — i.e., PRECISELY what the Joint Chiefs warned more than six decades ago. When the veterans of today realize that Members of the House and Senate are, even now, supporting this treachery, what recourse do they have against those complicit? What do active duty flag rank officers do when they realize that their oath of office requires that they defend this nation from all enemies, both foreign and domestic, but that many of those enemies have imbedded themselves in high office? What then? What is the cost that this “state” has imposed on us? Surely the “but for” costs must include, at a minimum, the cost of this latest war? What about the next one that this “state” is now busying working to provoke? What if the game theory-foreseeable dynamics destabilize Pakistan? Does anyone REALLY believe that Israel is an ally? If so, pray tell why? The confirmed facts point to a very sophisticated enemy within that, to date, has routinely succeeded in deceiving us to commit our blood and treasure for their extremist agenda. And what is our payoff? We look guilty by association, period, full stop. To fix it, face it — we’ve been had.

    Prefacing that American Jewry is much more progressive than the government of Israel [one should be careful not to equate the opinions of Jewry and the rightwing government of Israel, they are hardly the same], there is no question that Israel’s foriegn policy is a continuing war crime against humanity.

    Thank you for your attention to this matter.

    Usually, when I write a human rights piece hitting the foriegn policy of US-Israel, the commnentary I get back is that Israel’s culture and society are more liberal and open than even a secular Arab society.

    True. But presumably the conclusion follows that it’s then okay to subjugate and kill Palestinians. Hardly compelling logic employed by the militarists.

    Hope that you keep writing on this topic. Readers should check out J-Street- http://conference.jstreet.org/ [conference.jstreet.org]- and Jewish Voice for Peace [www.jewishvoiceforpeace.org], voices that speak out for arrested human rights workers and against the apartheid system of the occupied terrotories that goes on every day in our name.

      Chas Freeman (in a speech posted on the website of the National Council for US Arab Relations) puts the “insolent cruelties” of this “state” in perspective by simply reminding us of the remarkable power that the Israel lobby exerts: “Mr. Netanyahu does not fear pressure from the Unites States to change course. he is confident that his American lobby will arrange for Congress to punish the president if the president tries to punish Israel for its intransigence.” Keep in mind that an assassination campaign ensured that Tel Aviv would have “no one to talk to” on the Palestinian side. Israel does not want peace. Colonial Zionism requires serial well-timed crises, period, full stop. Thus the enormous peril should they fail to catalyze war with Iran because that will allow enough breathing space to reexamine just who provided the fixed intelligence that took us to war in Iraq for this agenda. Americans are not stupid; they’re just woefully (and purposefully) misinformed. An informed electorate will unwind this entangled alliance and begin to hold accountable those who enabled this. As for J Street, this looks like the latest “progressive” lipstick on the same old storyline. Let them acknowledge the common source and motivation behind the fixed intelligence. Let them concede the mythical nature of the rationale for this “state.” To date, they’ve only played good cop to the Likud bad cop. Once they start acknowledging the REAL facts…. then they make a difference. Until then, it’s a softer image on a hard reality that they have yet to concede.

      There’s numerous possibilities. Clearly Israel has made a two stat solution impossible. And a one state solution, the only thing consistent with genuine democracy, ensures that the “Jewish state” will in time no long have its racist majority. So what to do? Keep in mind that the original Zionists considered several other venues before falling back on Palestine and the mythology of the “promised land” in the midst of the world’s largest oil patch. Two of those candidates are still possibilities: Argentina and Uganda. Others have suggested Alaska. Gilad Atzmon posted a satirical piece (“I am a Holocaust survivor”) suggesting a ‘promised planet’ where the “galactic Zionists wound’t need to oppress anyone, they wouldn’t ethnically cleanse either, they wouldn’t have to lock the indigenous people in concentration camps, for there won’t be any indigenous people around to abuse, starve, murder and cleanse. They wouldn’t have to pour white phosphorous over their neighbors for there won’t be any neighbors. I would highly recommend NASA to search for a planet with very low gravity just to make it light for people to wander around. After all we want the new galactic Zionists to enjoy their futuristic project as much as the Palestinians and many others may enjoy their absence.”

    Quote: “Every American Jew has more rights in Israel, potentially has more rights in Israel, than any Palestinian who was born there, who lives there, or who was born to Palestinians who were expelled.”

    This is the most violent apartheid racism in the world today, and it controls the media and Hollywood, Washington and Wall Street..

      It gets worse. Read the international bestseller, The Invention of The Jewish People, by Shlomo Sand, an Ashkenazim, who documents what many have long suspected: there is no such thing as the “Jewish people” — they’re an amalgam just like the rest of us. Most hail from Eastern Europe (the Khazars). It’s all mythology backed with a thin (very thin) veneer of “Biblical” archaeology from the 1920s, none of which stands up to modern scrutiny. So we have “Jews” (anyone care to define that?) deploying U.S. weaponry to kill in the name of a fictional Jewish people based on some innovative literature cited to serve a social and political agenda. The closest this band of brigands comes to being “semites” is when they shake the hand of a Palestinian who, as Sands concedes, is a 1000 times more likely to be descended from the indigenous Jews of that area than anyone in the Likud Party that runs the place. By whom were these thugs “Chosen.” Of course such a psychological make-up entitles this “people” to exempt themselves from notions of universal justice and the rule of law. Gilad Atzmon, another Ashkenazi and a former Israeli (he’s over it) noted in a commentary (Search “I am a Holocaust survivor”): “We are dealing here with a pathological sinister society. Hence, as much as some of us may agree that Jews should enjoy a hypothetical right for a land of their own, planet Earth is certainly not the ideal location for such an affair.” He urges that those who wish to practice “the Holocaust religion” by accommodated by “the Galactic Zionist project” whereby the focus would shift from ‘promised land’ to ‘promised planet.’ Confirming that he is after all, a “proper Jew,” he puts it simple: “I clearly resent those who deny the genocides that are taking place in the name of the Holocaust. Palestine is one example, Iraq is another and the one that is set for Iran, is probably too scary to contemplate.” Everyone with any strategic common sense advised Truman against recognizing this extremist enclave as a legitimate sovereign state. With the consistency of their behavior, they far exceeded his worst fears of what they might become and the danger that General George Marshall and others anticipated they would pose to our national security.
