Top American General Cites Israel as Unsustainable and Apartheid

Top American General Cites Israel as Unsustainable and Apartheid

By Gordon Duff and Press TV


The story “hangs there,” a week now, no one will touch it other than the Times of Israel, their answer to Veterans Today, a publication run by former spies.

American reporting of the talk carefully edited out General Mattis’ references to Israeli settlements and his use of the word “apartheid state.”

This wasn’t just any general, not one of the kooks and malcontents who have sold a colorless military career for a payoff from the Israel lobby, “hot running girls or boys” and a condominium on a top rated PGA golf course.

This is James Mattis, former commander of CentCom, a Marine general with 41 years’ experience, the most respected combat leader of the last two American generations.

So, when “Mad Dog Mattis” addressed the Aspen Security Forum and called Israel “unsustainable,” even Israel listened.

Many people “talk the talk” and Mattis talks that “talk” better than anyone.  He also “walks the walk” as well.  Below are selected quotes from Mattis, some of the few that can be published as most contain language only Marines use, a bit “too specific” for civilians:

“Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.”

“The most important six inches on the battlefield is between your ears.”

“You are part of the world’s most feared and trusted force. Engage your brain before you engage your weapon.”

“There are hunters and there are victims. By your discipline, cunning, obedience and alertness, you will decide if you are a hunter or a victim.”

“No war is over until the enemy says it’s over. We may think it over, we may declare it over, but in fact, the enemy gets a vote.”

“You cannot allow any of your people to avoid the brutal facts. If they start living in a dream world, it’s going to be bad.”

It was this last quote that may well have pushed the Times of Israel to note, finally, that Israel’s “dream world” may be coming to an end.



Censored from news around the world, edited from broadcasts, the July 25, 2013, Times of Israel drops the “Apartheid Bomb,” the first time this term has been used with authority.  On the dais with Mattis was CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, coined “the voice of the Mossad” by author Jeff Gates.  From the Times of Israel:

“Mattis then described a hypothetical in which 500 Jewish settlers live among 10,000 Arabs, and the implications of where Israel draws the border. He called it a choice between giving up the idea of a Jewish state or becoming an apartheid state.”

The message of the destructive role of Israel’s illegal settlements, not just in territories occupied after the 1967 war but in violation of the 1949 Armistice Demarcation Lines as well, territory guaranteed as “Arab only,” making up nearly one third of Israel’s legally accepted borders.

Over 95% of that territory has been seized and its Palestinian population “ethnically cleansed.”

Thus, Mattis’s statement on “apartheid” when place in the context of his strong support of Secretary of State John Kerry’s current initiatives, places additional pressure on Israel, pressure not seen since the Carter presidency.

When taken with European Union moves in July, a vote authorizing broad trade sanctions against Israeli entities located on Arab land, not just those termed “occupied territories,” Mattis use of “unsustainable” to describe Israel’s future is meant to be a “wake up call” for a nation Mattis clearly believes has been living in a “dream world.”



It has become increasingly obvious that the US and European Union see the fall of the Assad government in Syria as unlikely.

Moreover, forces dedicated to the war on Syria are finding “greener pastures” in Iraq with over 600 killed last month alone by terrorists under Israeli backed Al Qaeda groups moving back and forth between Iraq, Jordan and Syria.

Increasingly, despite broad financial and military aid from Saudi Arabia and Qatar, Assad’s forces are consolidating gains across Syria and inflicting devastating casualties.

Israel’s response, one that has frightened some military leaders there, has been to commit to direct military intervention.  Israel has already lost one Dolphin submarine and at least one combat aircraft and crew.



Military analysts failed to note something very important about Russian weapons deliveries to Syria.  One key point was the S300 system, 250 missiles delivered by April 1, 2013, confirmed by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

More missiles with mobile launchers and command modules have been delivered since, estimated at nearly 400 by mid-July.

Israel has fewer than 400 first line combat aircraft in its entire air force. The number of air defense interceptor missiles allocated to Syria, missiles that represent an addition to their current embedded inventory, is highly asymmetrical.

There is no remote hope of Israel every gaining air supremacy over Syria should the conflict widen yet it is obvious that these are Israel’s plans.

With a Russian naval force off Syria’s coast, continued missile attacks, cited by Jane’s as using Tomahawk cruise missiles launched from Israel’s remaining German donated Dolphin nuclear-armed submarines, put Israel at risk of military confrontation with Russia.

We may well have not only supported General Mattis’s use of the word “unsustainable” but have shown it to be an understatement.

    This is off topic but I need to get this message out urgently.
    Dimitri Khlaezov has completed his long awaited book.
    His friends have copies of this.
    He has been in hiding because he heard that the Thai police were looking to kill him.
    Unfortunately, he has to show up in court today so he expects the cops will take that opportunity to do the dirty deed.
    Should this happen, his friends will release the book for general consumption.

      I’m not in the USA.
      When I said he has to show up in court today, I meant 6th August.

    I am sure AIPAC and its rabid attack dogs in Senate, House, in White House, in Pentagon and in media will make sure the general does not gets away with such statement… He should count the days…

      If General Mattis found the need I’ld volunteer to walk with him and catch a bullet, if it came to that, in order to ensure this Gen and others possessing integrity and genuine love of their country could rally veterans and patriots to their side.

    ——As always, thank you, Mr. Duff for sharing what the USA Zionist-Media hides on purpose to make the American people ignorant. However, the truth some how will always comes out.

    ——Thank you, General James Mattis, for your years of service and now, speaking out in order to Protect USA from being dragged to WWIII because of the “out of control Israel.”

    “You cannot allow any of your people to avoid the brutal facts. If they start living in a dream world – its going to be bad.”

    This true statement has more significance in today’s modern world than at any other time – and it is indeed the very reason that makes VETERANS a problem for the cabal and its agendas.

    Jonas Alexis has been contributing a series of first class articles to VT – many of them covering the ‘dreamworld’ mental state that zionists concoct to hypnotise, demoralise, mislead and neuter our people. It is done to unpick and dismantle our traditional western society – and to rubbish Christianity or any healthy mental attitude in particular. This leaves people weak, compromised and with no ‘standards’ of behaviour whatsoever – other than their feeble justifications for indulging themselves at all times

    Military recruit training has to remove that indoctrination – and bring the young man back to the real world for him to be of any use to his unit or himself in a combat zone.

      I believe that the General’s words also touch on the real reason for the modern phenomena of ‘Post traumatic stress disorder’ – and why many veterans now (correctly) end up seeing their own governments as the enemy. A person – once decoded of cabal indoctrination – will find it very hard to re-enter that wizard of oz dreamworld game again. For many the brutal reality of what they have seen or witnessed will prevent them from getting back into the swim with their deluded civilian colleagues.

      This poses a major challenge for the cabal – which is that soldiers are not any good as soldiers unless they are first decoded back to normality. Reintroduced to normality they struggle when they leave the service to be absorbed back into the big judaic lie programme. Modern times has seen the ‘dreamworld’ become more pronounced – and the gap between reality and our current society is widening as the controlled media exercises its hypnotic distraction apparatus.

      This is why returning vets are being now smeared as ‘enemies’.

    Good news, it brings hope to us all.

    The Israelis won’t place their own service personnel in harm’s way, or sacrifice their military equipment. As could be expected, they’ll order Washington to perform the unlawful deed, and the US will suffer the consequences as well.

    Very good news.

    I love this line: “This wasn’t just any general, not one of the kooks and malcontents who have sold a colorless military career for a payoff from the Israel lobby, “hot running girls or boys” and a condominium on a top rated PGA golf course.”
