While much of the public was being distracted by news reports of the scoreline in the Germany-Brazil World Cup game, another, admittedly less important, high-scoring 'game' was playing out in Israel/Palestine. While Brazil lost 7 to 1 to Germany, so far, Palestinians losses to Israel are running at 100-0, with no end to the carnage in sight.

A week ago I expressed my suspicions about the timing of the kidnapping and murder of the three Israelis teens. Since then, more details have come to light that confirm that the kidnapping was most likely a carefully orchestrated Israeli government propaganda campaign designed to destroy the Fatah/Hamas unity government, demomize the Palestinians as 'terrorists', and, as always, give the psychopaths in Tel Aviv another opportunity to blow Palestinian women and children to pieces.

As clinical studies on the psychopathic mind make clear, psychopaths periodically experience a compelling drive to give vent to their destructive instincts. In the case of psychopaths in positions of power, this usually means some kind of 'war' where innocent civilians (aka 'non-combatants') are targeted for the most brutal suffering. In the specific case of the Israeli psychopathic 'elite', the psychological profile goes something like this:

Netanyahu and his ilk have a deep, almost unconscious desire to obliterate the Palestinians, to 'erase them from the pages of history', because the Palestinians stand in the way of them achieving their goal of a idealized Jewish state where they reign supreme. The Israeli/Zionist ideologues are frequently and privately enraged at the Palestinians because the Palestinians force the Zionists to struggle to find a way to achieve their racist goals without tarnishing their own self-image as 'seeking peace' 'defending the Jewish people' being 'the only Democracy in the Middle East' etc. To the psychopaths in Israel therefore, all Palestinians are 'evil', but there's a problem: the Palestinians are not evil and their cause is just by normal human standards.
Not your common or garden variety
If it was up to them, the psychopaths in Israel would just kill all the Palestinians and be done with it. But they can't because they are constrained by human rights, innocence, respect and other 'silly' ideals adhered to by normal people, and to which the psychopaths must also pay lip service if they are to maintain their mask of humanity on the world stage.

To get what they want therefore, the Israeli psychopaths must solve the problem of the Palestinians not conforming (in reality) to the evil image the Israelis have of them, that would allow the Israelis to freely express their destructive urges and achieve their idealized vision of a Jewish state. The solution that psychopathic types everywhere invariably come up with is to 'create their own reality' where they literally manufacture a 'reality' to fit the demonized image they have of the 'enemy' that stands in their way. At that point, they have the 'just cause' to attack the 'enemy' whose mere existence has been 'unfairly' thwarting their attempts to get what they want i.e. achieve their psychopathic agenda.

With that in mind, let's look at the details of events over the past month in Israel/Palestine.

Kidnapped and Murdered Teenagers - Political Capital

The official narrative around the kidnapping of the Israeli boys has them being 'missing' for 18 days before their bodies were discovered on July 1st. During this time, in a supposed desperate attempt to find them alive and "bring them home", the Israeli government had the (very willing) Israeli military rampage through the West Bank destroying homes and arresting and interrogating hundreds of Palestinians. The truth of what the Israeli government really knew about the fate of the boys appears, however, to be rather different.

A few days ago the Israeli National News reported that the details of the phone call made by one of the boys on the night of the kidnapping would have led the Israeli government to suspect that the boys had been shot. The call, which took place at 10:25 p.m. on June 12, lasted for 2:09 minutes - most of which is comprised the police trying to resume contact after the caller was abruptly cut off.
An image you won't see in Israel: A father carries his severely wounded son after an Israeli missile hit the densely populated Gaza strip
In the audio recording, after one of the boys whispers "they've kidnapped me!" to the operator, the kidnappers can be heard shouting at the boys to get their heads down. Immediately thereafter shots are heard amid an apparent struggle and the boys can be heard crying out in pain. This was the moment when the teens were most likely shot dead in the back seat of the kidnappers' car. US investigators, involved because one of the boys was a US citizen, have said they were shot 10 times and that the weapons used to execute them were fitted with silencers.

The fact that blood, the boys' DNA and spent bullet casings were discovered in the burned-out car found shortly after the kidnapping tends to confirm this hypothesis. But rather than inform the boys' families and general public of these details, the Israeli government embarked on a propaganda campaign that was almost certainly planned many weeks in advance. A gag order on the press was quickly issued, preventing them from revealing the truth about the fate of the boys and the IDF proceeded on a two week-long 'search for the missing boys' as Israeli politicians and religious leaders whipped Israeli public opinion into a racist frenzy with calls for revenge and some individuals on FB responding to the murder of a Palestinian teenager by the IDF suggesting that all 4 million Palestinians should be "herded into gas chambers and their bodies burned".

The mother of one of the teens who had listened to the call the day after the kidnapping was told by police that the shots were 'blanks' and that the boys were probably still alive and the Israeli government initiated a '#BringBackOurBoys' campaign on Twitter in an attempted comparison to the #BringBackOurGirls campaign for the 276 Nigerian girls abducted in Nigeria by Islamic militant group Boko Haram (which appears to be a creation of Western powers, by the way).

The motivation for the lock-down on the truth about the fate of the boys was clear enough even to Israeli journalists. One week after the kidnapping, leading Israeli journalist Noam Sheizaf stated in a Facebook post that the gag order was to "preserve the local and international legitimacy" for a military policy aimed at Hamas - and, as such, the gag order was a form of "media manipulation". Sheizaf also cited a Haaretz article of June 20th by Amos Harel that hinted that the military knew the teens were dead because the IDF operation in the West Bank clearly had nothing to do with finding the boys and was even harming the search for them.
Not just in Israel: Protestors outside the Israeli consulate in NY.
What this means is that Netanyahu and his psycho cohorts callously used the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teenagers to emotionally manipulate the Israeli population into calling for Palestinian blood (which they most assuredly did) and to justify the Israeli military bombardment of Gaza. Note that I don't state that 'preventing Hamas from firing rockets' was part of the motivation. It clearly wasn't. The only broad political agenda being served here was to demonize Fatah as a 'partner for peace' (because of its unity govt. attempts with Hamas) and gain local Israeli and international sympathy for Israel so that it can continue to occupy and steal more Palestinian land with impunity and murder any Palestinians who try to get in the way of the pathological 'Zionist dream'. It's interesting to note that, for years, Netanyahu claimed that there was no point in partnering with Fatah's Abbas because Abbas had no control over Hamas. But when Fatah and Hamas recently announced a unity government, Abbas was condemned by Netanyahu as getting into bed with a terrorist organisation. Indeed, it was the threat of that unity government and recent criticism of Netanyahu from the US government that appears to have produced the kidnapping of the teens and all that has resulted.

Callously using the death of children for political purposes is one thing (and par for the course in our psychopath-ruled society) but is it possible, as I have suggested previously, that the Israeli government was involved in some way in the kidnapping and murder itself?

Self-Destructive Palestinian 'Resistance'

Within a few days of the kidnapping, the Israeli government already had two likely suspects. Marwan Qawasmeh and Amar Abu Aisha are two members of the so-called 'Qawasmeh clan' of Hebron, a group that is said to pay little heed to what Hamas has to say and that often acts in ways that are counter to Hamas' goals. According to Israeli journalist Shlomi Eldar, the group has a tendency to attack (or try to attack) Israeli targets specifically during ceasefires. Eldar states:
"Each time Hamas had reached an understanding with Israel about a cease-fire or period of calm, at least one member of the family has been responsible for planning or initiating a suicide attack, and any understandings with Israel, achieved after considerable effort, were suddenly laid waste. If there is a single family throughout the PA territories whose actions can be blamed for Israel's assassination of the political leadership of Hamas, it is the Qawasmeh family of Hebron."

Eldar also points out that these alleged 'Qawasmeh clan' operations often resulted in Israeli assassinations of Hamas leaders and the indiscriminate bombing of Gaza. For example, in August 2003 two alleged 'suicide bombers' blew themselves up on a bus in Jerusalem killing 23 Israelis. While the 'Qawasmeh clan' were held responsible, the Israelis blamed Hamas and killed one of its most prominent political leaders in Gaza, Ismail Abu Shanab. Shanab was widely seen as a moderate who posed the best chance of a securing a peaceful settlement to the 60+ year conflict.

Haaretz military correspondent Amos Harel wrote that: "there is no evidence that Hamas' leadership either in Gaza or abroad was involved in the kidnapping" and that there are many Palestinians who oppose killing unarmed boys" and that "the kidnapping undermined Hamas' relations with the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority and effectively froze the Fatah-Hamas reconciliation." It seems pretty clear that Hamas had no knowledge of the kidnap plan and that it was carried out by individuals acting on their own initiative, and that the Israeli government knew this from the beginning, which makes the decision to indiscriminately bomb Gaza highly cynical on the part of the Israeli government, unless, of course, that was the plan.

Political pundits in Israel and elsewhere all appear to agree on the idea that, while Hamas was not responsible for the kidnapping, it is very reluctant to condemn such attacks for fear of angering the Palestinian people who have precious little means to defend themselves against Israel's continued ethnic cleansing operation. But, as Haaretz military correspondent Amos Harel noted, there are many Palestinians who oppose the murder of innocent children, and it is clear that, far from a victory, the kidnapping and murder of the three teens was a crushing blow, both politically and physically, to Palestinian aspirations. As Max Blumenthal asked in a recent essay:
Why would Hamas leadership have authorized an operation that so clearly threatened to unravel the movement's political achievements, wrecking the vaunted unity deal and leaving Abbas without rival in the West Bank?
So who were the kidnappers? It doesn't seem reasonable to think that the 'Qawasmeh clan', who are well versed in the dynamics of Israeli occupation, would so nonchalantly invite such destruction from the Israelis with no tangible benefit to the Palestinians. Unless, of course, that was the kidnappers' plan.

Fifth Column

The idea of there being a 'rogue element' among the Palestinian resistance is nothing new, and on several occasions in the past, Palestinian leaders have not only denounced the firing of rockets at Israel, but pointed to Israel itself as being behind the attack:
Hamas blames 'Israeli collaborators' for launching rockets
Sun, 12 Oct 2008

The Hamas rulers of the Gaza Strip on Tuesday lashed out at gunners who fire rockets at Israel from the Palestinian territory in violation of a seven-week-old calm, calling them Israeli collaborators. "About the rocket-firing, I think those who are responsible are those who collaborate with Israel because there is a consensus by all Palestinian groups to respect the truce," said Dr. Mahmud Zahar, a senior leader of the Hamas movement.

On Monday, a rocket fired from the Gaza Strip landed in an empty field outside the southern Israeli city of Sderot, causing no casualty or damage.

According to AFP, Zahar told a Gaza radio station that the party which fired the rocket was "linked to Israel as they provide a pretext to exercise pressure on the Palestinian people."
Israeli false-flag operations are not limited to rocket teams however:
Palestinians arrest al-Qaeda 'poseurs'

December 8 2002
Sydney Morning Herald

Palestinian security forces have arrested a group of Palestinians for collaborating with Israel and posing as operatives of Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda terrorist network, a senior official said yesterday.

The arrests come two days after Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon charged al-Qaeda militants were operating in Gaza and in Lebanon.

"The Palestinian Authority arrested a group of collaborators who confessed they were working for Israel, posing as al-Qaeda operatives in the Palestinian territories," said the official, on condition of anonymity.

He said the alleged collaborators sought to "discredit the Palestinian people, justify every Israeli crime and provide [Israel with] reasons to carry out a new [military] aggression in the Gaza Strip."
Ibrahim, the Shin Bet wants you to join Qaida

Danny Rubinstein
Jan 7th 2006

Early last week, Rashi Abu Sba, head of the preventive security apparatus in Gaza, the equivalent of the Shin Bet, accused the Israeli security service of tricking young Palestinians into conducting missions in the name of Al-Qaida. Last Tuesday, a young man named Ibrahim was presented to reporters in Gaza. Ibrahim hid his face behind a mask, and told what happened to him.

He said that a year ago he sent in a personal, with his photo and phone number, to East Jerusalem's Post, a cultural-entertainment weekly with a personals section. Three months later, the Gazan received a phone call from an older man, who introduced himself as a merchant named Ahmed, who told Ibrahim that his photo reminded him of his son. They spoke on the phone a number of times, with Ahmed asking Ibrahim about the situation - and if he was a devout Muslim.

[...] In one of the conversations, Ahmed said he was working for Osama bin Laden's Al-Qaida organization, and Ibrahim was meant to be one of its organizers in northern Gaza since the group already had an infrastructure in the south. Ahmed gave Ibrahim a list of people, mostly Hamas activists, and was told to collect information about them and follow them so they could also be drafted for the Al-Qaida cause.

The two never met, but at a certain point during their telephone contact, Ibrahim became suspicious. He contacted a preventive security officer in Gaza and told him the whole story. The officer looked into the matter and told Ibrahim that Ahmed was an Israeli Shin Bet agent, and Ibrahim should immediately cut off any contacts with him.

Palestinian sources said last week that the case was not unusual, and they reported it, as well as similar cases, during a security meeting with top-level U.S. security officials
The point of including these articles is to show that the dwindling Palestinian territories are most likely infested with Israeli intelligence operatives, either the 'real' kind or, more likely, 'turned' Palestinians who are working under some form of duress for Israel. History shows that any resistance organisation confronting the power of a state cannot maintain its integrity for very long. Infiltrators are a certainty, particularly in relation to such a small geographic area like the West Bank and Gaza. Given that the kidnapping and murder of the Israeli teens was always going to further the Israeli agenda while presenting a serious setback to the Palestinian, and rejecting the idea that the Palestinian political and military leadership is stupid enough to take action that would result in a very predictable 'own goal', and accepting the fact that Israeli politicians are psychopaths... I submit that Israel was directly or indirectly responsible for the kidnapping and murder of the Israeli teens. 'Cui bono', basically.

A Birds Eye View

If the situation in Gaza (for example) were transplanted to the USA, it would be akin to there being a 25x5 mile Native American Indian reservation outside Washington DC where 1.8 million Indians have been effectively imprisoned by armed guard towers for 60 years. Subjected to an economic embargo to the extent that basic resources and food were scarce and periodically fired on or bombed by the US military, now and again, some of the Indians respond by fashioning rudimentary rockets that rarely reach their target in the suburbs of Washington or do any damage. Nevertheless, in response to these primitive attempts to defend themselves, the US government repeatedly orders the US military to drop massive ordnance on the Indian civilian population, killing entire families at a time. Who would support it?

The problem with Israel is not necessarily that it was founded on stolen land and has imprisoned and regularly bombs the dispossessed Palestinian population into submission, the problem is that Israel engages in such brutality while simultaneously attempting to manipulate the world into believing that it is a little piece of victimized 'Western democracy' and 'civilization' in an atavistic Middle East dominated by Neanderthal Arabs from whom it is merely 'defending itself' and that all Western peoples should support Israeli genocide of Palestinians because, if you don't, we'll shove the Jewish holocaust card down your throats at every turn. The massive and shocking irony in the FACT that the Israeli government and people are using the memory of the Jewish holocaust to justify doing precisely the same thing to the Palestinian people has been made by many others elsewhere, so I won't labor the point, but it does bear repeating, often.

The Israel-Palestine conflict is the world's longest running major conflict. Since the ethnic cleansing of Palestine by Israeli forces circa 1948, many attempts have been made by many people to find a solution, yet all of them have failed, and for one simple reason: most people misunderstand the Israeli political psychopaths when they say they want 'peace'. 'Peace' for Israeli politicians means the peace of not having to face each day the living testimony to their inhumanity against the Palestinians and the fact that their 'nation state' is a racist, Jewish Apartheid state founded on the theft of the land of the people they now hold in literal servitude in the world's largest open air prison camps.

Israel does not want peace with Palestinians, it wants to finish the job it started in the 1930s and 40s. It wants every Palestinian either dead or exiled to other Arab nations. When you understand the truth of that (and you can see the truth of it in Israeli actions over the past 60 years) you understand that there can be no peaceful solution to the Israel/Palestine conflict until either the Jews or the Palestinians are wiped out, in one way or another.

I'll leave you with a word from Diane Sawyer of ABC News USA. See if you can spot the slight flaw in the objectivity of this report. Unusual for a US media outlet when reporting on Israel/Palestine.
