Israel threatens world peace
and security. It's a global menace. The International Jewish Anti-Zionist
Network (IJAZN) is unequivocal.
Its new pamphlet headlined "Israel's Worldwide Role in Repression."
It discusses "the role of Israelís government, its military, and
related corporations and organizations in a global industry of violence
"The states most involved with this industry profit from perpetual
war and occupation across the globe while maintaining vastly unequal societies
of their own."
"Maintaining and expanding" Israeli colonization of Palestine requires
regional ethnic cleansing, military repression, and "accompanying atrocities."
Israel "developed great expertise." It exports it "on an industrial
scale. Doing so is crucial to its economic and political power."
It partners with Washington's crimes. It collaborates with the worst
of regional despots. It's waging war on Palestine, other world communities,
and popular movements.
Allied with America and other Western states, it seeks regional
dominance and resource control.
It wants its share of what Franklin Roosevelt's State Department
called a "stupendous source of strategic power, and one of the greatest
material prizes in world history."
It referred to Saudi oil. Regional control is now sought.
Israel's importance to Washington is reflected in "the growing significance
of both oil and the arms trade to the world economy."
Israel gets more US aid than all other countries combined. Most
is military related. It's vital to Israel's budget.
It covers about 18% of total spending. From 1949 - 2011, direct
aid way exceeds official estimates.
Included are $3 billion or more in annual congressional allocations,
special trade advantages, preferential contracts, hidden amounts, weapons
and munitions supplied, interest free loans, and various other exclusive
In 2002 dollars, multi-decade estimates range from $1.8 - $3 trillion.
Official numbers place it between $115 - $123 billion.
Most often, whatever Israel wants it gets. US taxpayers pay the
tab. They have no idea how much it costs. In 2009, Israeli military spending
accounted for "an additional 15.1% of (its) overall budget."
As a percent of GDP, it's "the biggest defense spender." It's for
offense, not defense. Israel has no regional enemies. It invents them
to hype fear.
Washington does the same thing. They're rogue partners in crime.
US-supplied aid funds regional instability, settlements, and other
forms of occupation harshness. It also made Israel a "laboratory to develop
weapons, surveillance technology, and" control populations.
Israel markets what it has globally. It exports death, destruction
and human misery. It sells to allies and alleged enemies.
Its customers include Islamist, communist, capitalist, despotic,
and nominally democratic states. Where there's profit to be made, Israel
Where there's a way to further Israel's imperium and ally with likeminded
partners, Israel prioritizes it.
Israeli "crowd control, forced displacement, surveillance, and military
occupation" expertise "place(s) it at the forefront of a global" repression
Militaries, police, and other security forces brutalize people with
what Israel supplies.
Government agencies, the IDF, and private Israeli corporations grossed
over $2.7 billion in 2008. Doing so accounted for over 7% of Israel's
Israel has over 300 Homeland Security companies. They operate globally.
"No other country has such a large pool of experienced former security,
military, and police personnel." None were more able to field test "systems
and solutions in real-time situations."
None ever manufactured more out of whole cloth to do so. Israel
has no enemies. It invents them and pretends.
Zionist organizations provide their own political and economic support.
They share "intelligence information," coordinate surveillance and repression
strategies, and collaborate for profit.
Israel is a rogue terror state. It collaborates with others like
itself. It plays a major global role. It limits free movement. It helps
police communities. It undermines worldwide struggles for justice.
It's well documented. It's rarely if ever discussed publicly. It's
almost never challenged.
In his 1982 book titled "Israel's Global Role: Weapons for Repression,"
Israel Shahak discussed Israel's ties with global repressive governments.
They included apartheid South Africa, El Salvador fascists, Somoza's
Nicaragua, Panama's Noreiga, Gulf State despots, Uganda's Idi Amin, Ian
Smith's Rhodesia, Iran under the Shah, Suharto's Indonesia, Argentina's
military dictatorship, and others fitting the same mold.
"Israel ties its interests not with the masses fighting for freedom,
but with their jailers," said Shahak.
Haaretz once called Israel the West's "watchdog." It's America's
regional cop on the beat. Turkey plays a similar role. So did Iran under
Regional violence and instability remain prioritized over conflict
resolution and peace. They're anathema and spurned. A new book explains
Avi Raz is a former Israeli journalist turned historian. He's an
Oxford University Faculty of Oriental Studies Associate Faculty Member.
His book titled "The Bride and The Dowry: Israel, Jordan, and the
Palestinians in the Aftermath of the June 1967 War" covers the two-year
period following Israel's West Bank occupation.
It goes where most others won't dare. It documents ethnic cleansing.
It exposes what Israel goes to great lengths to conceal.
Its arguments are irrefutable. Sound evidence affirms them. It occupied
the West Bank and East Jerusalem to stay. It considered annexing Gaza.
It seeks expanded territory for a greater Israel. It's the only country
with no official borders.
Israeli officials acknowledge their international law violations.
Raz explains Washington's complicit role. His title derives from former
Prime Minister Levi Eshkol quote he perhaps wished he never said.
He called the West Bank and Gaza the "dowry" Israel's Six Day War
won. "The trouble is that the dowry is followed by a bride whom we don't
want," he said.
He referred to Palestinians. Before 1948, they were marked for ethnic
cleansing. Israel wasted no time. It never stopped. Moshe Dayan explained.
He told then Lt. General Yitzhak Rabin "that the aim was to empty the
West Bank of its inhabitants."
How mattered less than doing it. In 1947-48, Israel expelled or
slaughtered about 800,000 Palestinians. It destroyed 531 villages, as
well as 11 urban areas in Tel-Aviv, Haifa, Jerusalem, and elsewhere.
In June 1967, it removed or killed another 200,000. Twenty or more
additional West Bank villages were partially or totally destroyed. It
was done "to obliterate the Green Line."
Israel "encouraged" Palestinians to flee. They terrorized them to
move east of the Jordan River. Thousands who tried returning home when
fighting ended were called "infiltrators."
Hundreds were killed trying. Women and children were treated like
men. Many were buried in mass graves.
Israel never intended to return stolen land and doesn't now. It
wants more. It wants all valued parts of Palestine. It wants Jewish exclusivity.
It "prefer(s) land to peace." It disguises its real intentions.
It says one thing and does another. It's operates this way throughout
its history. Lying is official policy. So is subterfuge.
It wants Arabs marginalized and ethnically cleansed. Slow-motion
genocide is policy to achieve it. Peace is anathema.
Palestinians never had a legitimate partner. Israel never missed
an opportunity to spurn what it won't tolerate.
Brussels-based European Friends of Israel (EFI) calls itself "a
political initiative which aims to improve the overall relationship between
the European Union and Israel."
Parliamentary national/Israeli friendship groups from all 27 EU
states are involved. EFI's purpose is political. Israeli needs and objectives
are prioritized. Reality is suppressed to further them.
After decades of inflicting death, destruction and human misery
on a scale few other countries can match, EFI declared Israel a "world

It creates enough of them on its own. It doesn't give a damn about
humanitarian needs at home or abroad. Claiming so is willful deception.
Propaganda, myths, lies, and damn lies substitute for truth.
It's been America's way for generations. It's Israel's way since
stealing 78% of historic Palestine in 1948 and the remainder in 1967.
It's Palestine's way to establish self-determination within 1967
borders. Israel wages war on Palestinians who try.
