Maxim that those who do not learn from history are condemned to repeat
it applies to those Jews who refuse to come to terms with the Jewish
past: they have become its slaves and are repeating it in Zionist and
Israeli policies. The State of Israel now fulfils towards the oppressed
peasants of many countries – not only in the Middle East but also far
beyond it – a role not unlike that of the Jews in pre-1795 Poland: that

Causes of Hostility Towards Jews: An Historical Overview
It is a sad
reflection on our times that accusations of anti-Semitism are so hastily
hurled at anyone who dares to criticise Israeli policy. The term seems
to emerge from an emotional maelstrom of American/Israeli sensitivities,
steeped in the doctrinal quagmire of the warped counterpart of Judaism:
of being “chosen and “special” is curious; it is a strange contradiction
to proclaim to be doing the will of the One God of all Humanity via the
exclusivity, separation and aggressive tendencies of the followers of
a single monotheistic religion. That said, it is also quite appropriate
from the viewpoint of Yahweh/Jehovah, who, it seems, would be quite satisfied
with as much exclusivity, bloodshed and collective egoism as possible.
The fact is, whether it is Islam, Christianity or Judaism, monotheistic
religions are concerned with patriarchal control – period. Any original
forms of objective spiritual truths have long since been lost in favour
of the extensive emotional dividends it can provide for a powerful few.
Many Jewish people abhor such exceptionalism and insist that it is simply
the chosen lot of those Chosen peoples to take on a more onerous task
of fulfilling “G-d’s” will (and no doubt, according to such interpretations
of “G-d”, the punishment that will be meted out should they fail). Though
this in itself does not alter the initial premise of being “special,”
there is certainly a great difference between Jewish people and the Zionist
control as the primary factors in the Israeli government and encroaching
indeed Jewish and Arab peoples desperate to live in peace, though their
initiatives are being drowned out by gunfire, bombs and the incessant
screams of the dying, usually children. With such deep emotional wounds
inflicted on both sides and for so long, where peace is consistently sabotaged,
it suggests that the powerbrokers have huge stakes in the continuance
of this carnage inside the barbed wire of our social conditioning.
cradle to the grave we are programmed to be used and abused and to be
set against each other in innumerable ways from within our own families
to the conflict of nation states, fostering the dialectic of “us and
them” “divide and rule,” “eye for an eye” and the tragically false notions
of a progress that is largely materialist by definition. Therefore,
in one very real sense, we are all in this together. Yet the level of
our perceptual blindness is dictated by our deference to the comfort
zones of dogmatic beliefs which are never more applicable than in the
highly charged context of the United States and Israel.
The Palestinian peoples' claim to their own land and heritage has become
a fight for the most basic human rights, indeed their very right to
exist; where poverty, settlement encroachment, and extreme oppression
from Israeli forces has become a daily part of their lives. That is
not to say that Palestinian terrorist atrocities are somehow vindicated
by these assertions. Suicide bombing attacks are wholly abhorrent, but
they arise from the anger and desperation of a brutally oppressed people;
a response to a persistent aggression: occupation and virtual genocide.
When a people are denied liberty and freedom, via a system of “closures”
and curfews, where over 65% are knee deep in poverty, the nature of
this reality dictates that extreme measures will rise to the surface
as peaks of resistance, as a reaction to the aggressor’s ferocity. What
goes around comes around.
In 1947, following on closely from the outpouring of sympathy for the
Jewish Holocaust, Zionists were able to secure a vote at the United
Nations for the Partition of Palestine into two states. Israel served
as a valuable strategic interest for the U.S. whereby continual financial
assistance ensured an optimum channel into the Middle East enabling
the U.S. to usurp the waning dominance of the British in the region.
Since that time it has resulted in the gradual ascendance of Orthodox
Jewish fundamentalism, Zionist dogma and the present day achievement
of three primary objectives. Firstly, to make the destruction of Palestinian
society palatable by claiming a religious moral high ground where paramilitary
reprisals are seen as an evil attacking an exclusive mandate from God.
Secondly, to expel or “transfer” Palestinians to areas outside Palestine
and to “import” Jewish peoples from all over the world to offset the
increase in their population. Despite promises of free transportation,
cash allowances and free housing from land stolen from the Palestinians
themselves - this plan failed. But the plan to make life as unbearable
as possible must in the end pay dividends, and this is what the Israeli
Government is banking on with assistance from the United States representing
the third and most pertinent objective overall.
We now see two psychopathic personalities, Ariel Sharon and George W.
Bush, at the helm of a symbiotic relationship where the Palestinians’
human rights are being inexorably squeezed out of existence. It is clear
that the quasi-religious and interventionist policies of the neo-conservative
Bush administration and the Jewish/Zionist strangle hold on the media,
indeed U.S. society, are playing a mutual game of back scratching with
a decidedly taut interplay of fanatical religious goals and aspirations.
These dangerous undercurrents are flowing in and out of purposeful strategy
of political expediency and ruthless one-upmanship where the Iraqi population,
and the Middle East as a whole suffer extraordinary hardship from such
frenzied drives for omnipotence.
It is not within the scope of this column to outline the extremely serious
flaws within the organizational structure and agencies of the UN. Although
truly humanitarian peoples work under its aegis, and have achieved enormous
successes, they are all restricted by the bars of a system of control
that defines the limitations of those successes. The reality is that
the inaction, ineptitude and total failure of the UN on a wide range
of international issues is reflected and sourced from its attendees
and affiliated agencies such as the infamous International Monetary
Fund (IMF) and the World Bank both established under the highly dubious
1944 Bretton Woods agreement which coincidentally came into operation
in 1947. The World Bank earns almost as much from interest and loan
repayments as it hands out in new loans each year. Over 60% of the bank’s
loans goes to suppliers outside the borrower countries for such things
as consultancy services, machinery and of course, oil. Control of the
bank is vested in a board of executives representing national governments,
whose votes are apportioned according to the amount they have funded
the bank. Thus the USA has nearly 20% of the vote and always appoints
the board’s president. Consequently, resolutions, conventions, declarations,
protocols, amendments and condemnations have little effect in a world
held fast in the cement of lies. The UN has been severely co-opted and
akin to the remains of the American constitution, effectively acts as
an apologist for the world’s only super power.

How typical that both Israel and the U.S. should block resolutions opposed
to the intervention in the internal or external affairs of states or financing
the training of journalists and strengthening communication services in
the undeveloped world. How typical it is that both should oppose further
resolutions regarding nuclear weapons including: a need for a comprehensive
nuclear-test-ban treaty; the call for Israel to renounce possession of
nuclear weapons; cessation of all nuclear test explosions; declaration
of non-use of nuclear weapons against non-nuclear states; World-wide action
for collecting signatures in support of measures to prevent nuclear war,
curb the arms race and promote disarmament; Prohibition of the development
of new types of weapons of mass destruction and an Independent Commission
on Disarmament and Security Issues.
on from Israel’s refusal to place its nuclear facilities under International
Atomic Energy Agency safeguards which was condemned by the UN in a resolution
back in 1987, it makes the present day actions of Israel and its call
for Arab states to disarm all the more hypocritical and despicable. It
is nauseating to follow the actions of Bush sanctimoniously calling for
weapons of mass destruction to be given up while Israel sits on its own
illegal nuclear facilities and expanding bio-chemical weaponry.
and regular dynamic of the U.S. was to oppose ALL the above. The only
exception was an abstention regarding a call for a “convention for the
rights of the Child” which gives some indication as to the kinds of people
we are dealing with here. Nevertheless, they seem to have had their way
by exacting the same petulant but dangerous demands by covert means. The
blatantly undemocratic and self-serving tendency has now reach new heights
being the epitome of democracy, the United States reveals its true colours
in the votes above, opposing virtually ALL social, economic, political,
ecological and humanitarian resolutions unless it benefits its own and
Israel’s interests, the latter prodding its monolithic handmaiden - the
Whore of Babylon - to do its bidding.
Kofi Annan has well and truly lost any shred of credibility with his recent
support for the blatant propaganda of the World Jewish Congress and its
call for a UN general assembly resolution condemning anti-Semitism. It’s
that old tired programming again in which criticism of Israel’s policies
creates the hysterical reaction of anti-Semitism and the agenda therein.
From Signs of the Times June 22nd:
condemnation of the opinions of Jews or of the state of Israel which
claims to act in their name, is immediately counter-condemned as "anti-semitism",
or "hatred of Jews simply because they are Jews". Simply stated,
if a "goyim" does not at least unconditionally accept and
ideally praise the actions of Israel and therefore agree with the opinions
of pro-Israeli Jews, then by default, he or she "hates Jews because
they are Jews".
result of this deliberately manufactured "world wide rise in anti-semitism"
can only be bad for ordinary Jews around the world, who bear the brunt
of Arab anger at the policies of Sharon and the "Zionists"
in Washington. At the same time, this manipulated rise in "anti-semitism"
can only be good for Sharon and his cohorts, giving them, as it does,
further carte blanche to viciously attack Palestine and its people in
the name of protecting the interests and lives of ordinary Jews.
conclusion in all of this is that ordinary Jews are being "set
up" in some way by their own "leaders", and there is
much evidence that it would not be the first time that this has happened.
this is the reality of the situation at present, and we find it difficult
to believe that Kofi Annan does not understand that this is the case.
As such, we must conclude that Annan is a closet supporter of the genocidal
policies of Sharon and the Washington "Zionists", regardless
of the moderate humanitarian face that Annan, as head of the UN, is
compelled to present to the world."
The financial ties between the U.S. and Israel represent an extraordinary
long term policy in double standards and favouritism which has extended
across successive administrations and stretched the idea of aid to its
limits. For most members of Congress, let alone for most Americans, the
sheer scale of this monetary support is not known, nor is the mainstream
media keen to trumpet this caricature of expenditure.
It is an easily verifiable fact that Israel has been the beneficiary of
aid totalling more than $84,854,827,200
billion since 1949–1997.
Not bad for
a country which comprises only 0.001% of the world’s population and boasts
a GNP higher than Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and the West Bank and
of this money has come from loan guarantees converted to grants with any
outstanding loans “forgiven” by Congress, which is not a little insulting
to Latin American and African countries still pounded by debt repayments
keeping them in a state of perpetual poverty and economic subservience.
is a very special case it seems. Other countries receive aid in quarterly
instalments whereas Israel is fed its substantial booty at the beginning
of the fiscal year. We must also include the annual $1.5 billion banquet
from private U.S. funds in the form of tax deductible donations and
Israeli bonds under the umbrella protection of a considerable number of
powerful Jewish charities, a well-oiled process that once again sets an
According to Richard Curtiss of the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs

billion since 1949, not adjusted for inflation, or put

the U.S. government by Oct. 31, 1997 which “…cost American taxpayers $23,240

It is the
powerful leverage of the Jewish lobbyist organizations operating on behalf
of Israel which command enormous funds which Congress meekly approves
and never cuts. For example, The American Israel Public Affairs Committee
(AIPAC) coordinates the campaigns for donations and has a $15 million
dollar budget and some 52 national Jewish charities from which to rally
to the cause, some of whom appear to be adopting nothing more than a platform
for denigration of all things Arabic spun at the edges with conciliatory
businessmen and Zionists are also grabbing a slice of the pie under the
shroud of “reconstruction” now taking place within the open wound of Iraq.
One example comes from The Iraqi International Law Group (IILG) which
was set up last July by Salem “Sam” Chalabi, the nephew of the head of
the Iraqi National Congress Ahmad Chalabi, a Pentagon favourite and leading
member of Iraq’s (read U.S.) governing council.
Mr Marc Zell
who was a one time member of the Likud party and campaigned for the now
leader in waiting, Binyamin Netanyahu, has the onerous responsibility
of finding Israeli/American companies to do business in Iraq. Zell, who
has offices in Jerusalem and Washington ran a law practice with none other
than Douglas Feith, the Pentagon vulture now conveniently assigned the
task of reconstruction in Iraq. Zell is becoming more outspoken with his
views on the rights of settlers to occupy Palestinian land as well as
promoting the idea of supplying Iraqi oil to Israel via a pipeline, something
which Ariel Sharon was enthusiastically pursuing while visiting Iraq last
year. Having extremely strong ties to the Pentagon before and after the
invasion it comes as no surprise that Zell and others like him represent
a piece in an overall strategy of Israel to drain Iraq if its life-blood
in more ways than one.
Biased business opportunities have nothing to do with establishing a cohesive
and sustainable infra-structure, rather, this represents the future “glories”
of capitalism and an open door to the basic ingredients of this form of
extreme consumerism, the culture of sex, violence and MTV - the U.S. way.
A black market, mafia driven exploitation will thrive, should it even
reach that stage. (Indeed, pornography is already supplying the demand
in some hastily revamped cinemas and living rooms of Iraqi citizens as
one indication of Western alliance influences). Russians will tell you
the mafia network is ready to spring into action anywhere where there
is a society vulnerable and shattered. Although Saddam Hussein was a brutal
dictator, let us not forget who originally placed him there and who now
sees Iraqi democracy is an amusing afterthought.
Big money pouring in to Israel - particularly after the ransacking of
Iraq - has meant Israel’s military capability has been enhanced to a significant
degree, due in part, to illicit arms technology transfers and the sharing
of weapons systems software technology. What is more economically incestuous
is that much of the military aid to Israel is used to buy weapons from
the U.S. and heavily subsidized by the same, thus furthering the demand
for more weaponry in the Arab states. Indeed, 80% of arms to Arab countries
is sourced from the U.S., (though it is also true that many European arms
manufacturers have been keen to provide weapons for Israeli, most notably
the United Kingdom).
A prime example
of stunning hypocrisy is evident from the U.S. Foreign Assistance Act
which prohibits military assistance to any country “which engages in a
consistent pattern of gross violations of internationally recognized human
rights.” We can also include the Proxmire Amendment which bans military
assistance to any government that refuses to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation
Treaty and to allow inspections of its nuclear facilities. And here
we have the U.S. happily flouting such laws with Israel continuing its
own nuclear capability while crying foul against any other nation attempting
to do the same.
But the Israeli
Powers that Be see themselves as “chosen” and “special” with a mandate
to do as they please while engineering and riding on the back of a unilateralist
In summary, one facet of Homeland Security is the big bucks opportunity
for those willing to capitalize on the misery of Iraq and the implanted
fear in American society.
Reports of the Israeli’s
developing ethnic specific weaponry becomes less of a rumour and more
of reality when we cast an eye over the 200 companies and corporations
listed as “recipients for grants from U.S./Israel binominal foundations”
at the Jewish Virtual Library (a division of American Israeli cooperative
Enterprise). The text goes into a romantic, hand in hand explanation of
the two countries with “shared value initiatives” in sudden capital letters
and as “partners for Change.” One may take a shrewd guess that the kind
of “change” and “initiatives” are very different to the flowery image
of participation and renewal depicted here. The grants were primarily
in terms of biotechnology, energy, telecommunications, high technology,
agro technology as listed, however, they are rather more coy concerning
the armaments expenditure, though the 2002 $80,696,756 foreign (read U.S.)
military contracts total is indicated. Keep in mind the long history of
interest in biotechnology including non-lethal weaponry which has
had a massive investment drive over the last ten years stemming from growing
push for greater military control within America’s virtual absence of
constitutional law, we see that Israel has been given assistance that
fits in very nicely to the shadow government’s executive line of a New
World International Order.
The Israeli network within the Bush Government fronted by Paul D. Wolfowitz,
Richard Pearle and David Feith, to name a few, would suggest that American/Jewish
interests are so intertwined that is hard to know just where America ends
and Israel begins. In fact, more than a decade ago Deputy Secretary of
Defence Wolfowitz and I. Lewis Libby, Chief of staff to Vice President
Dick Cheney, had argued in draft policy statements to press for the further
establishment of various imperialist polices including the development
of biological weapons that can “target specific genotypes [and] may transform
biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool.”
you wonder just who the real “terrorists” are and how many other “useful”
tools have been laid out on the geo-political chessboard.
The now infamous
report in the London Times back in 1998 described Israel’s claim to have
successfully developed an “ethnic bullet” that targets Arabs. Indeed,
no denials have been forthcoming and from the same report an Israeli
government spokesman said: “we have a basket full of serious surprises
that we will not hesitate to use if we feel that the state of Israel is
under serious threat.” (For a detailed exploration of Israel’s bio-weaponry
please read the Signs of the Times supplement on Ethnic Specific Weapons).
It seems a far cry from notions of peace and reconciliation though again
ironic in its parallels to Nazism. This may also connect to the
expansion of the Human Genome Project and America’s love affair with Eugenics
which harks back to the brain drain of Nazi scientists during and after
the Second World War which in turn created the principles upon which the
CIA and the NSA were formed.
also ask the question: if Arabs can be targeted genetically, can the Israelis
also target other "genetic lines," such as peoples of Black
or White, Anglo-Saxon heritage?
