Anything for dear old Israel

Now we know that the Iraqi War and the general arrogant and dodgy behavior of the USA (eg. Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo Bay, extraordinary rendition, My Lai-ish conduct of its troops, malicious/vindictive attacks on Sunni enclaves in Iraq such as Falluja, war crimes in Afghanistan) had stemmed from its Republican Party neocon Administration.

The only decent bloke in the Bush Administration was Colin Powell, who as Secretary of State then, was sabotaged every which way by Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld and the Wolfowitz-Feith-other-Zionists clique.

Powell continues to be the voice of conscience and notwithstanding the fact he has left the Administration, has recently called for the immediate closure of the draconian Guantanamo Bay for the military kangaroo courts commissions to be scrapped. He said that those dodgy institutions were un-American, and harming the reputation of the US justice system.

He declared that all inmates from the military prison in Cuba into the US justice system (which will mean that at least they would be entitled to legal representation, which they currently aren’t).

He lamented: "We have shaken the belief the world had in the American justice system by keeping a place like Guantanamo open. It's caused far more damage than anything we get from it."

Powell said "some authoritarian figures "were using Guantanamo to "hide their own misdeeds".

Meanwhile, former Democrat US senator Joseph Lieberman, supposedly on the other side of the political fence but a known Democrat warmonger (he was tossed out of the Democratic Party but stood as an independent and won, and now represents Connecticut as such) wants the USA to seriously consider a military strike against Iran because of Tehran's alleged involvement with Iraqi insurgents.

He said: "I think we've got to be prepared to take aggressive military action against the Iranians to stop them from killing Americans in Iraq."

During the war, Lieberman has consistently supported the Bush Administration, and unsurprisingly, has been reputed to be the only Democrat trusted by George Bush. He even received a hug from the President.

He said that much of the action could probably be done by air, the shock and awe formula. However, having suggested that, he said he would leave the strategy to the generals in charge.

Incidentally Liberman had called himself an orthodox Jew though many orthodox Jews scoffed at his at-times lack of orthodox observations, like voting in Congress during the Sabbath and not wearing a yarmulke.

But like most neocon American Zionists he obviously sees Iran as a perpetual threat to Israel (rather than to American troops in Iraq, which may well be a case of happy coincidence).

Afterall, another neocon Zionist, a dear friend of you-know-who [look, I didn’t mention the name of the Malaysian connection, OK? ;-)] had been insistent and instrumental in the US bombing Iraq for 9/11, an act that could rather be more correctly traced to Saudi Arabia and Egypt. And that’s because Iraq which had nothing to do with 9/11 was a threat to Israel.

Anything for dear Israel, even with American lives (already more than 3500 in Iraq).


  1. Muslims = Nazis

    In November 1941, Adolf Hitler and the grand mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, met in Berlin and reached an agreement that a German occupation of Palestine and other mandated territories would result in the annihilation of their Jewish population, adding well over half a million Jews to the 6 million European Jews to be murdered by the Nazis.

  2. Anon, you've mixed facts with myth.

    1st-ly, in 1931 there were only 175,006 Jews. Another 61,854 Jewish migrants from Germany and elsewhere in Europe joined them in 1935. Total would be (allowing for a slightly inflated figure) at moist only 250,000, hardly the half a million you claimed.

    You're correct in saying Haj Amin was well-known for his anti-Jewish stand but this was in relationship to his opposition to Zionism raher than just pure racism, because he tolerated Jews before the Balfour Declaration was resurrected for the creation of a hitherto non-existent Jewish State out of Palestinian land.

    Thus, the proper context ro look at issues would be that Haj Amin fought against the establishment of a Jewish Homeland in the colonial territory of Palestine. The British had declared the Balfour Declaration to win Russian Jewish support in their grand European strategy.

    To oppose Zionism and a Zionist state in the Middle East, Haj Amin collaborated with Nazi Germany during World War II.

    Today the new Nazis are the rightwing Israelis of the Likud/Kadima and other ultra Jewish groups like those led by Rabbi Yosef Ovadia. They're more racists than the Nazis.

    How or why are Israelis racists? Can that be even possible? The short answer is YES - just examine the Old Testatment for their feral racist behaviour.

    For thousands of years, many Jews throughout the world refused, yes refused to assimilate with the locals (and I have witnessed such a demonstration of outrageous racism on an Australian TV when I was visiting that country).

    They consider themselves the 'pure ones', the Chosen of God, the Hebraic God - mind you, not your god or my god but the God of only the Hebrews. Only in their demented racist minds would they even contemplate that a God would only select One People! Small wonder such people are racists.

    Having said that, I was only referring to the extremists, ,like the Likudiks, Kadimans, Haas Party etc. Not all Jews are like that.

  4. Hi KTemoc,
    Official British Mandate documents - Population of Palestine 1941 - Jews 474,102, Arabs, 1,111,398.

    For thousands of years, assimilation would have been tantamount to giving up Judaism for most Jews in Europe. They were not persecuted everywhere - some countries were more tolerant than others. But it wasn't until the 18th Century that some countries started to have freedom of religion guaranteed by law.
    So the tendency for Jews to live apart from the surrounding Goyim was a basic necessity for survival of their religion.
    There are many Christian families in Europe who can trace their ancestry to converted Jews, who had finally given up and joined the broader society.

  5. Anonymous, you also believe in collective punishment?

    The misinterpretation of Ahmadinejad's speech about Israel (
    Mahmoud_Ahmadinejad_and_Israel) has Israeli supporters calling him a Nazi.

    Yet, it is interesting to hear politicians in both the US and Israel calling for "nuking" Iran - isn't that what "wiping off the face of the map" really means? Where are the condemnations?

    Needless to say, if anyone who collaborated with Hitler results in the collective being accused of being a Nazi then you would have:
    1) Protestants = Nazis
    2) Catholics = Nazis
    3) Norwegians (Quisling) = Nazis
    4) Vichy-French (Petain) = Nazis
    5) Chinese (KMT) = Nazis
    (The list could go on ...)

    A bit ridiculous isn't it.

  6. Will this website be banned in Malaysia for its views?

    The West is waging war not against the religion of Islam, but against the little-understood political philosophy of Islamism, which, upon close examination, reveals itself as a distinct - and distinctly noxious - form of the same kind of fascism that went down in defeat in World War II, but which never quite died out, especially in the Middle East.
