When Will We See the Next Mass Murder?

Here’s a news flash for Tel Aviv: it’s not a sign of respect when the bulk of humanity views you as psychopathic.

The concerns of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are misplaced. The legitimacy of Israel is no longer threatened. It’s already lost. Long gone. Kaput.

Nation states are shared states of mind. The mindset in Iceland differs from India. Israel is the most unlike of all. Founded by extremists and terrorists, it’s been downhill ever since.

Psychopaths want to be loved. That’s why they’re so charming, albeit only superficially. They’re also pathological liars, egocentric, callous and remorseless.

Those qualities have long been familiar to Israel’s neighbors, particularly the Palestinians. After WWII, Harry Truman was charmed into treating this extremist enclave as an ally.

That decision may well go down in history as America’s greatest mistake.

Though we’ve served for 62 years as Israel’s patron, pocketbook and apologist, the respect and affection has flowed in only one direction.

Psychopaths should not be confused with megalomaniacs. The mental states are quite different. Megalomaniacs seek to be feared, not loved. Control is the common trait.

That not-so-subtle distinction matters, at least for those of us who are not dual citizens.

For instance, it’s now known that Israel and its advocates fixed the intelligence that took us to war in Iraq. That fact is no longer in dispute.

That fact alone confirms the split personality evident in the shared state of mind we call Israel. Those who share that state charmed us into committing our blood and treasure for goals long sought by Israel. That’s the psychopath component.

The megalomaniac component felt they had a right to make us fearful. As Chosen (by a god of their own choosing), devotees of this shared mindset truly believe it’s their right to deceive. Those complicit see themselves as “of us but above us.”

When we dispatched our military to pursue their goals, Americans were killed and maimed as we borrowed our way into a fiscal morass from which there’s no clear route to recovery.

Score another victory for the U.S.-Israel special relationship.

Why Don’t Americans Get It?

Nothing about this “state” is legit. Never was. Its founding traces to a multi-decade reign of terror built on a phony historical foundation. Even the most dull-witted now question how Israel came into being. And why the U.S. ever deemed it special.

Americans are learning to fear Israel—as they should. A few of us remain charmed—despite the facts. For the True Believer, facts are likely to remain irrelevant.

Those familiar with the facts know better. Thus the fast-growing concern that troublesome behavior patterns are emerging once again.

Those most knowledgeable are deeply concerned about recent events.

On August 26th, a leaked memo from the Central Intelligence Agency cited American Jews as exporters of terrorism. Then came the news on August 30th from Sephardi chief Rabbi Ovadia Yosef who urged that Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas “vanish from our world” and that “God strike (Palestinians) down with a plague.”

Neither story gained traction in mainstream U.S. media. Instead, news coverage was reserved for August 31st when four Israelis were shot dead in the West Bank.

The most lethal attack in four years—blamed on Hamas—occurred just hours before Netanyahu’s scheduled meeting with Hamas leaders and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The timing revived memories of the many well-timed “incidents” during the reign of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. No one dares suggest that Tel Aviv may be the source of this latest incident. Yet consider just a few of the many precedents:

  • On April 12, 2002, at the same moment Secretary of State Colin Powell was meeting with Ariel Sharon, a suicide bombing occurred in Israel, killing 8 and injuring 22.
  • On May 10, 2002, at the same moment President Bush was meeting with Ariel Sharon, a suicide bombing occurred in Israel.
  • On June 11, 2003, on the same day Ariel Sharon visited the White House, a suicide bombing killed 17 and wounded 100 on a bus in Jerusalem.
  • On November 11, 2003, while the president of Italy was visiting the U.S., Italy suffered its greatest wartime casualties since WWII when 19 Italians were killed in Iraq.
  • On November 20, 2003, while President Bush was visiting Prime Minister Tony Blair in London, the British envoy to Istanbul was among 27 killed by a blast.
  • On November 30, 2003, while the president of Spain was visiting the U.S., seven Spanish intelligence officers were killed in Iraq.

The Source of Terror

What happens to Israel’s fast-fading legitimacy if the fear of terrorism—all of it—traces back to those long known for their expertise at waging war “by way of deception.” That’s the founding credo of the Mossad, Israel’s foreign operations directorate infamous for its worldwide expertise as an agent provocateur.

Would a state founded by terrorists resort to terror to sustain a narrative essential to its survival? Would Tel Aviv again deceive the U.S. to pursue its expansionist goals?

Zionist media mogul Haim Saban spoke candidly when, in the May 10th issue of The New Yorker, he boasted of “three ways to be influential in American politics:” make donations to political parties, establish think tanks and control media outlets.

His only omission: terror.

Was this dual citizen conceding how the U.S. was induced to war—for Israel?

Was he describing how Zionists shape U.S. policy—in plain sight?

Was he describing how psychopaths wage war on the U.S.—from within?

Was he divulging how megalomaniacs influence U.S. decision-making—with fear?

Americans have long been charmed by this “special” relationship. Now it’s time to be fearful. When a mental state of this malevolent sort becomes transparent and its operatives apparent, that’s when “psycho-megalomania” becomes its most dangerous.

Will we see another terrorist attack? You can bet on it. The only question is: When?

Special days are often chosen for special events. Will the next mass murder be on Rosh Hashanah (September 8th)? How about the ninth anniversary of September 11? Or Yom Kippur on September 17?

Will the next incident be nuclear or conventional? Will it be staged in the U.S. or the E.U.?

And most important of all: will it be blamed on Hezbollah or Hamas? Or will the “Pakistan Taliban” be portrayed as the requisite Evil Doer responsible for the next mass murder?

Stay tuned.

    good, while not brilliant, article.

    2nd section title: “Why Don’t Americans Get It?”

    Well, HA!mericans are brainwashed. They are undereducated, uncultured
    slaves working 3-4 jobs (and committing suicide when they don’t have a
    job)– and they are proud of it!!! Except for the well-educated
    European (and some Asian) immigrants, HA!merica is a 4th world country
    in any IQ stats. UK is obviously destroying US by proxy — using
    Israel. UK wants to get back this land and they seem smart enough to
    do it. What can I say? — I’ll just hate the damn Brit taxes …

    I thank Peter R Smith for giving the information about Jewish Kitat Kohenut groups Mark Dankof has described on his website and I read about them. I also listened to Mark Glenn’s The Ugly Truth Radio show.

    What is going on in Providence seems to be Kitat Kohenut activities. 12/14 Medway Street seems to be one such place where people gather in the nights of some days and the week ends. There is a Jewish man who lives at 14 Medway which is the upstair apartment. Gatherings and meetings are going on downstairs which is Apartment 12. There is a black lady among other attendees [drives a red beetle with a GA Lisence plate now no longer brings her car but the Jewish man picks her up from some place] At least 3 apartments [those facing Ives Street] at 381 Ives Street apartment building [in the corner between Ives Street and Medway Street] may be occupied by Mossad agents. 385 Ives Street may be the home to one. 381 and 385 Ives Street are in the same building with separate entrances. 12/14 Medway apartments and 381 and 385 Ives Street Apartments share the same parking lot and are owned by a Jewish family.

    My daughter and I live at 385 Ives Street and have lived there since December 2004. The Jewish family that owns these buildings used to be nice. We dont know where we stand with them today despite the fact that we have been here for nearly 6 years.

    I have been exposing Zionist anti-American activities at Brown University and Providence police chief and mayor since 2006 September. Providence police chief is a Zionist Jew, so is the mayor and these Zionist Jewish agitators have all the support they need from these officials. I am posting this for the public to hear directly from people like me whom they may be getting ready to target through well planned, well organized activities because we refuse to be their crime partners by
    being silent–by not speaking out about their crimes.

    It is important to say that we are not planning to commit suicide.

    Howarth, are you perchance related to the Smiths of Tel Aviv?

    cut off their welfare checks. End U.S. aid to Israel

    Muslims in general are fairly dispicable. Have you noticed that they have antagonized every other racial, ethnic, and religious group that is not Moslem. They fight with the Jews. They fight with the Christians. They fight with the Hindus. And if that isn’t enough they fight with the Bhuddists. Just look at Southeast Asia. If you can’t get along with anyone is it always someone else’s fault, or should you perhaps look in the mirror? Being said I still hate Israel and turned against them a long time ago once it was clear that they used our foreign aid to Israel to set up consulting firms and think tanks and lobbyist organizations to lobby our own congress. They are brilliant. they use our own money to lobby for their own causes. Just because they are smart doesn’t mean I have to like them. I still hate them.

    Next time, be on the lookout for these guys.

    “When we dispatched our military to pursue their goals, Americans were killed and maimed as we borrowed our way into a fiscal morass from which there’s no clear route to recovery.”

    Would you please be a bit more specific about who “we” are?

    Similarly Indians(now inclined to radical hindus) are taking lessons from israel
    and demonizing hapless muslims “by way of deception” of course cauing false flag terror attackes and blaming muslims. Political dissent is being systematically and on the rise for the muslims and so are the number of political prisoners of Kashmir, you can find the parallels between Kasmir and palestine with evil occupiers India and Isreal
