Israel’s Coming “Civil War”: Haredim Jews Confront the Militarized Secular Zionist State – by Prof. James Petras
The Haredim share a common plight with Israel’s Arab population: Both communities face increasing police harassment, discrimination, religious persecution and rising levels of poverty. A Haredim-Arab alliance would unite 30% of the population against a common secular militarist and plutocratic enemy. A study in 2006 claimed that over a third of Israeli Jews identified the Haredim as the most unpopular group in Israel .
Jamal Kanj highlights recent scientific research which proves that in 1948 “the children of the original Jews” – the Palestinians – were replaced by 8th century converts with no roots in the Middle East.
Alan Hart examines what it would take for Obama and Abbas to stop being grovellers to Israel and the Zionist lobby, and wonders if they’d both be assassinated if they ceased grovelling.
Those who are of good conscience must consider these things, whether they be so. And find for themselves whether wisdom excelleth folly, as far as light excelleth darkness or is it better to have a mind positioned in nothingness? Political realities are issues of the heart of leadership and although prayer changes things. Change must begin in our own hearts and wisdom manifests within the spirit of our minds. Where regard is rendered unto knowing that through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established: Wherewith, by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches. Then, let us all learn from a truth, “Through desire a man, having separated himself, seeketh and intermeddleth with the spirit of all wisdom.” From such a place shall we not be made free indeed?
Until and unless we eradicate injustice, we have no reason to know beauty, for all that we create is tainted by that injustice pretending all is well with our world. Truth does not exist if injustice surrounds us and we are silent in our complicity. Proclaiming moral virtue in a world awash in crimes against humanity is condoning the crimes unless we act to eradicate the crimes.
Philip Giraldi, Director of the Council for the National Interest, discusses the “Christian Zionism and American Islamophobia” conference on January 30 at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.; the peculiar interworking of American end-times theology and Israeli politics; the CIA’s skepticism on the effectiveness of drone strikes; and how fleeing Syrians are creating a refugee crisis and security problems.
This election has been a personal blow to Netanyahu, but not to the right. Netanyahu misread the public mood, but not on the central issues that should define the left-right divide in Israel: the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and decades of belligerent Israeli occupation. Far from a collapse of the right, the election demonstrated that the right is continuing to push the center of political gravity ever further rightwards.
If truth be told, it did not take “a few years” for the Jews to inflict “unbelievable levels of persecution” on the indigenous people of Mandate Palestine; the persecution began in earnest in 1939 against the British, the British Mandate Government established in 1922 by the League of Nations to maintain order and peace in Palestine. The Zionists undertook “a war against the British Mandate Government, its Police and Soldiers” while it lobbied and subverted the MP’s in Westminster with propaganda and money.
David Ward MP: “Having visited Auschwitz twice – once with my family and once with local schools – I am saddened that the Jews, who suffered unbelievable levels of persecution during the Holocaust, could within a few years of liberation from the death camps be inflicting atrocities on Palestinians in the new State of Israel and continue to do so on a daily basis in the West Bank and Gaza.”
Can you imagine two American politician race to do a “one-upsmanship on who is more pro-China?” Of course you can’t because this will never happen. But why is it OK if politicians are pro-Israel? Have the Americans lost their minds? How do they allow Israel Firster’s so called American politicians and policy makers to declare their loyalty to a foreign state and can be counted on to put interests of Israel in front of America’s?
Concomitant with these rumours is the Egyptian government’s and the opposition’s race to please the United States and its Zionist lobby. While the very same Issam al-Aryan spoke about the tragedy of the Jewish holocaust while in the US on a Muslim Brotherhood promotional trip in May 2011, the naïve and charisma-less Mohamed el-Baradei upped the ante by telling a German newspaper that elected Salafi and Brotherhood members of parliament should not be trusted to draft the Egyptian constitution because they allegedly deny the holocaust!
The “Jewish Lobby” has such power and influence on the U.S. government; one only needs to read the main reason U.S. Senators, mostly Republicans vying for a piece of the Democrats Jewish subsidy, are opposing the nomination of Senator Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense.
According to a leading opponent of the nomination, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who appeared on CNN (Jan. 6) explaining his opposition by saying Senator Hagel “is very antagonistic to the State of Israel”.
What the Hell? Israel – Senator Hagel is nominated by President Obama for Secretary of Defense of the United States, not Israel.
As Jews of conscience, we call on all supporters of social justice to stand up for Palestinian Right of Return and a democratic state throughout historic Palestine — “From the River to the Sea” — with equal rights for all.
Israel leaders are signalling the need for Zionism to pre-empt any possible international pressure for withdrawal by going ahead with annexation without too much further delay. If necessary, a final ethnic cleansing by military means. This would see Zionism resorting to its tried and tested way of defying international law. Effectively Israel’s leaders say to the world: “We know we should not have done this, but we’ve done it. What are you going to do about it?” On the evidence of history to date Zionism knows the answer to that question, “Nothing.”
Haneen Zoabi is insisting that the Israeli State cease identifying itself with the interest of a single constituency and start representing the interests of the nation as a whole. What this is all about, she says, are “the values, the humanistic, universalistic values of freedom, of equality, of justice.” But there is nothing “universalistic” about Zionism and so, for her efforts, she is castigated and threatened. Such is the state that Zionism has built.
Netanyahu threat, “we destroyed almost all of their long-range rockets. But I’m telling you that the IDF is preparing to strike a still-heavier blow. Our account with Hamas is not closed.”
Hunting Nazi’s business has been slow for the rich Zionist Simon Wiesenthal Center, so a new scheme had to be developed … they created new enemies. Among those ‘cited’ was our esteemed associate Carlos Latuff.
The Palestinian Authority’s role and influence on anti-Israel advocacy is limited. “More than anything,” contends the study, “the conduct of these bodies reflects the anti-Israel advocacy campaign’s absolute failure to unify organizations and activists in this context around a single, coherent, official message.”
Alan Hart: What is it in particular that you think they need to be “saved” from?
President Obama: (The president smiled). The short answer is Netanyahu, those to the right of him and the Zionist colonial ideology they represent. The long answer has to take account of this fact. If Israel continues on its present course, gobbling up more and more of the land and water resources of the occupied West Bank, there will come a time when the Palestinians of Greater Israel will outnumber its Jews. They and their leaders will then have a choice of three options.
Mr. President, it is shocking, bewildering, incredulous, and tragically disappointing that American citizens should have to resort to a petition asking you to serve America’s national interest by nominating the incredibly qualified Senator Chuck Hagel for Secretary of Defense and, for once, stand up to Israel and its Jewish cabal and lobbies, such as AIPAC, ADL, and the American Jewish Committee, who are smearing and assaulting an honorable American to pressure you to withdraw him from consideration as has been reported in Israel.
Obama’s decision, expected very soon, about whether or not to nominate Hagel will give us the first significant indication since his re-election of whether or not he is going to continue to dance to Zionism’s tune or, as Hagel might put it, continue to be intimidated by its lobby.
Is the true voice of Hamas discernable at this point? There seems to be a sharp contrast between the sweeping language of Meshaal’s words spoken at the anniversary demonstration in Gaza and his far calmer, focused, and accommodating tone in interviews and other statements during the last several years.
General Assembly has no legal right or basis to Partition any land, especially against the wishes of the majority population. Also, given that Israel did not meet Resolution 273′s “conditional” requirements for admission, its membership in the U.N. is illegal.
Zionist Jews is seeking to dehumanize the Palestinians in the same way the Nazis sought to dehumanize Jews in the Auschwitz concentration camp. Zionism is to modern enlightened Judaism what Nazism was to Germany’s traditional ethical values.
The quest for peace based on the co-existence between Israel and Palestine has taken a big step forwards. Unity between the Palestinians should be the next. US support for the actual creation of the State of Palestine should come soon after.
November 29, 2012 will live forever in posterity and in perpetuity as the day where the world’s beloved people, the occupied but never defeated, never surrendering Palestinians will take the first step to the international legitimacy of a nation, a people, who have been victimized by the west and a heartless, racist, and murderous rogue state, Israel, and a world paralyzed by American hegemony, domination and fear.
Wherever the Israelis and their Zionist cohorts are leading us, it is not into the light, it is to someplace very very dark. Israel is the last surviving heirs to the dreadful racist heritage.
Despite their rights de iure as well as de facto and their legitimate resistance and struggle and the use of weapons that do not come up to the minimum standards of a modern army, it is only the victimized people of the world who understand their plight together with those coming from the West who are termed radicals. At this juncture in history the people have no power, but it behooves us to continue the struggle for freedom and justice in any way we can, without destroying the planet, as our friends the capitalists are doing.
Observers thinking Palestinians gained from Pillar of Cloud might think again. Nothing changed. Hardline Netanyahu policies continue. Expect worse ahead. Palestinian peace, reconciliation and unity advocates are murdered or arrested.
With the two-state solution not only dead but formally buried, they could then campaign, with growing global support, for equal rights and security for all in one state (all of pre-1967 Israel plus all of the West Bank plus the Gaza Strip).
Netanyahu finally decided that it would be too costly for Israel in diplomatic and political terms to say “No” to Obama and many other leaders who insisted that Israel had to agree to a ceasefire.
Clarity of justifications fails into obscurity when the question is raised, “What is it Israel is defending itself from or what is it being defended?” Political alphabet of the Protocols thereby being, immaculately executed through the ruse, “Israeli Rights to Defend Themselves Argument.”
Targeting of Gaza’s unprotected and undefended civilian homes from high altitudes is the ultimate expression of cowardliness and callousness. Hence, the wanton, unbridled brutal aggression on the thoroughly tormented, thoroughly blockaded and bombed out Gazans.
Israel has long practiced a policy of nuclear ambiguity. No one’s fooled, however. With Israeli Apartheid a similar policy of Apartheid Ambiguity is in place.
