Excuse Me While I Vomit

Excuse while I vomit

 

By Alan Hart

 

I imagine I am not the only one who feels the need to vomit (dictionary definition – “to throw up the contents of the stomach through the mouth”) when Israel’s Goebbels justifies the Zionist state’s ferocious and monstrously disproportionate attacks by air and sea on the Israeli-blockaded Gaza Strip, the prison camp which is home to 1.5 million besieged and mainly impoverished Palestinians.

The Israeli to whom I am referring is, of course, Australian-born Mark Regev, the prime minister’s spokesman, for which read spin doctor. The more I see and hear him in action, the more it seems to me that he makes Nazi Germany’s propaganda chief look like an amateur.

In a piece for The Observer on 6 June 2010, Ruth Sutherland wrote the following. “If the men from Mars ever wanted to manufacture a PR man, they would model their robot on Regev. No matter how formidable the interviewer, or how aggressive the questioning, he never buckles under pressure. His disarming Aussie accent and unfailing politeness – he calls interviewers ‘Sir’ and uses phrases like ‘I beg to disagree’ – almost lulls listeners into overlooking his aggression. He is always regretful about death and horror – he regrets that the non-Israeli victims brought their fate on themselves. Viewers are reduced to a trance of slack-jawed amazement at what he is prepared to say with a straight face. He is unlikely to win sceptics to Israel’s cause, but as a PR performer he is horribly compelling.”

Compelling he certainly is but, as Sutherland indicated (I will be more explicit), only to Westerners and Americans in particular who have been conditioned for decades by Zionist propaganda and, as a consequence, know nothing or little worth knowing about the truth of history as it relates to the making and sustaining of the conflict in and over Palestine that became Israel.

In the immediate aftermath of Israel’s targeted assassination of Hamas’s military commander, Ahmed al-Jabari, Regev was at his best. Via the BBC and many other networks his main message to the Western nations was that Israel is just like them – democratic and civilized. “I would ask them all,” he said, “how would you act?” (respond to rocket fire from “terrorists”). By obvious implication he was saying something very like, “You would take all necessary action against the terrorists to defend and protect your people, and that’s why I am sure you will understand and support what we are doing.”

The flaw in that presentation is that Israel is NOT like the Western nations. It is a brutal occupying power, and the cause of the incoming rockets is its occupation and on-going colonization and ethnic cleansing of the West Bank including East Jerusalem, and its blockade of the Gaza Strip. That plus the fact that Israel’s leaders have no interest in peace on terms the Palestinians could accept.

Regev also appealed for Western understanding and support on the grounds that “they” (Hamas) say my country should be wiped off the map.”

That’s one of the many big, fat Zionist propaganda lies. The truth is that Hamas is firmly on the record with the statement that while it will never recognize Israel’s right to exist, it is prepared to live in peace with an Israel inside its 1967 borders.

Regev’s master, Netanyahu, was also up to his old tricks – diverting attention. He played the Iranian nuclear threat card to get Palestine off the international community’s agenda. With Israel’s next election less than 70 days away, one of his reasons for authorizing Operation Pillar of Defense was, as a report in The Times of Israel put it, “to divert public discourse from social justice to security issues and silence the government’s critics.”

The Mossad’s motto is “By way of deception, thou shall do war.”

Netanyahu obviously believes that by way of deception he can not only retain power but emerge from Israel’s next election with more power than ever. (Enough to tell Obama to go to hell if that ever becomes necessary).

The support (by default if not design) of Western governments for Israel’s latest ferocious and monstrously disproportionate attacks also makes me want to vomit.

    Alan, I have seen that squatter Mark Regev buckle and lose it quite a lot on clips on JOOtube. One occasion by Jon Snow on British Channel 4 news.

    If one insists on poking the tiger with a sharp stick and then complains about being bitten, one should reconsider the practice of poking the tiger.

    Give thanks that you are able to yet complain and that your protestations are not being taken for a simple case of bad indigestion.

    He has spruced his look a bit since last time, nifty specs and hair a bit neater.

    However, to say Israel is not like Western nations is a bit iffy, they behave no better when in occupation of unwilling populations, or invading them, blasting the resisters to smithereens at the drop of a hat, and lying about exactly who fired first etc as long as they can get away with it, and often beyond. Sure Israeli policy sux, but it’s pretty standard practice at that level sadly.

    • Steve  November 17, 2012 at 3:16 am

      That should have been ‘the resisters AND anyone else who gets in the way or happens to be in the vicinity’.

    Freiberg (Regev) isn’t an Australian, we disowned him years ago.

    Aussies are decent, honest straight-talkers who back the underdog every time.

    This pathetic excuse for a man is a poisonous viper, a stinking pile of sh!t on the sidewalk of life.

    Hello Emma,
    I am a Levi,and in total disagreement with you.
    9 centuries ahead? Woman’s equality? homocidal individuals……their own self-enhanced demographic chaos?
    These”homocidal individuals ” are people who were living in a land ,flooded by people since 1945.
    These new people claim to be the rightfull owners of this land ,based on a book the “homocidal individuals” don’t seem to agree with.
    Especially when these new people want to take your land ,after an absence of 2000 years,and want you to disappear.
    It might be usefull to read a bit of history,especially the part of history most jews seem to have a black spot(1897 untill now)
    All Jewish sources;
    Rabbi Gedalya Lieberman “Zionism and the Holocaust”
    Anton Chaitkin “Rockefeller,Nazi’s ,The UN, and mass murder.
    Simon Shama” 2 Rothschilds and the land of Israel”

    • Worker Bee  November 16, 2012 at 7:20 pm

      Except the Ashkenazi Jews in Israel are of Khazarian descent, and not any Semitic tribe that lived in Palestine 2000 years ago.

    • shachalnur  November 16, 2012 at 7:30 pm

      About the way men treat woman; You mean former Israeli President Moshe Katsav,former knesset member Haim Ramon, the former Police chief of Jerusalem,the father of the mother of my children ,a former Israeli Army General ,who raped the shit out of his daughters when they were little girls.
      Give me a break.
      About who owns the land in Palestine; Judaism states clearly that Jews will rule in Israel AFTER the Messias comes,so let’s wait patiently for that.
      What Jews are doing now is opposed to Judaism,and Rabbi’s a hundred years ago in Europe warned for the disaster Zionism will cause to Jews and everybody else.
      Judaism became “Chosenite Holocaustianism”, a perversion.
      Zionism has nothing to do with Judaism.
      Pease educate yourself and stop being a parrot for the Hasbara.
      Start with the above mentioned writers,they’re jews ,so don’t be scared.
      I know you mean well,but you’re wrong.

    • blakehamilton  November 22, 2012 at 12:38 pm

      They treat their women bad? Never heard of one being cut up or shot which seems to happen quite a lot in the self chosen rosen tribe

    Been a while since I used google, but when you entered Regev’s name it suggested the search: “Mark Regev Liar”. The Zio’s certainly are masters of propaganda. But as Jim Dean recently said on this site, once you become aware of the tricks you start seeing right through them. The good thing is that more and more people are waking up, and VT is certainly doing more than it’s fair share on that front.

    Why is it so difficult to see what’s happening?
    William Hague;”Naughty Hamas shouldn’t defend themselves,but Israel should understand that a ground offensive will lose them support in the world”
    Hamas spokesman;”No truce ,things are different this time around”.
    Obama;”Naughty Hamas,but Israel shouldn’t attack too hard.”
    Israel calls up 30.000 +75.000 reserves.
    Do they need 100.000 reservists to invade Gaza?
    Tanks and F-16’s will do the job very nicely,thank you.
    Why now?
    Most commentators say that Israel is doing this for “domestic electoral reasons”.
    Rubbish.
    Netanyahu would have won the elections easily without attacking Gaza.
    It’s Israel under attack .
    US,Britain,Europe are gonna go on “supporting ” Israel verbally,and at the same time do nothing.
    Netanyahu is now almost begging Obama to intervene,but Obama won’t,he’s Rothschild controlled..
    If Israel is stupid enough to invade Gaza,the northern border will explode and US,Britain and Europe will do nothing.
    Rothschild has pulled the plug on Zionism,it has served it’s purpose, and Israel is aware of this since june 2012.
    They tried to change their destiny by trying to get Romney in power and failed.
    Elections over ,now it’s time to finish the job.
    The world is gonna stand by rooting for the humiliated Arabs ,while they go for their torturers.
    A “real” war in the middle east(all wars fought by Israel untill now were “controlled”) will throw the world into an economic collapse,and the jews will be blamed.
    Just 2 problems;Israel might panic ,and make good on their threats to drag the world down with them.
    Even if there is a controlled landing,the people running the show behind the scenes for hundreds of years
    (Rothschild,Rockefeller,Warburg etc. )will remain out of reach and invisible,like in ww2.
    They are free to go on slow killing and enslaving the world.
    All of this was predictable because Rothschild left the proof of their plans in plain view,in your face.
    By the way; Same day of assault on Gaza,new Ebola outbreak in Uganda,and an investigation released by Australian scientists that Ebola might be airborne now.
    All on the same day.
    This option was always available to the Elite,but the fact they might use it at the same time,shows they are not to sure of themselves.
    The war has started.
    Keep your eye on the ball.

      What do you mean with “for the Rothschilds Zionism has served its purpose”? And how do you know that?

    • shachalnur  November 16, 2012 at 4:27 pm

      “Anton Chaitkin” should be Simon Shama,sorry for that

      GOOD WORK.
      Problem with posting comments on VT? yes, me too. probably VT is under cyber-attacks.
      by the way when you copy paste a link add a few *****or something else before or after the link to deactivate the link so comment isn’t delayed for moderation. If you copy-paste multiple links moderation could take days!!!

      Joseph Stalin was an employee of the Rothschilds in Baku. He was an street thug, thief, arsonist, etc., the usual and customary Rothschild goon. There is no way a psychopath like him would have attained control of Russia if the Rothschilds did not want it so. He was the perfect Rothschild employee to carry out the task of murdering Russians by the millions without thinking, hence his appointment. His Tsarist police photo used to be fairly common but not anymore since the Rothschild-Revolution-control of everything that torments this planet is becoming better known.

      Scroll down for Rothschild Employee of the Year Photo

      Until the criminnaly insane Rothschilds and their love slaves are stopped, this will continue everywhere. They are consummate parasites and cannot function normally, even though they are at the helm of social control and destruction everywhere. They cannot evolve. They will be parasites forever, it is their nature. We cannot go on taking orders from hyper slumlords, money grubbers and drug dealers.

      Yep I had problems too. Thought they had either been attacked or were upgrading.

    Mr. Hart:

    Thank you, and this further confirms the true definition of “Israel as a permanent state (form) of terror & terrorism”, not a state as a country. We already established with undisputed historic documents the above to be the correct definition & posted it on these pages of VT:

    ******http://www.veteranstoday.com/2012/11/08/press-tv-netanyahu-repentant-as-obama-re-elected/
    ******http://www.veteranstoday.com/2012/11/07/turkey-puts-israeli-officers-on-trial-for-terror-attack-on-humanitarians/

    Let it now be known that any individual, or collective (such as AIPAC) or any body (entity) in any country which supports such forms of terrorism (such as Israel) is itself a terrorist entity and must be subject to arrest & seizure by the people of that country if that country’s police force fails to do so (such as the U.S. police forces have failed to lock up or seize such terrorists in its midst and operating in its highest places).
