IThough hardly ever mentioned
in the Western Global Press, “Terrorism” lies at the very roots of the
creation and survival of Israel even though the global mass media
have drilled deep into the collective psyche the idea that “Terrorism
Whether its 9/11, or suicide attacks in London and Madrid, or political
murders throughout the Middle East and elsewhere, or a bomb blast in
a tourist bus in Bulgaria the foregone conclusion is; “Muslim Fundamentalists”
So, when we see an American presidential candidate like Mitt Romney
holding a high-profile fundraiser in Israel in the King David Hotel
- a veritable symbol of Zionist terrorism - one can only feel amazed
at how double-standards keep the US-Israeli “special relationship” rolling
Though most people ignore it, one of Zionist terrorism’s deadliest terror
attacks took place in July 1946, targeting this very same Jerusalem
luxury hotel which at the time housed Britain’s Palestine Government
This is an issue many Britons still feel quite strongly about.
In an article called “Remember the King David Hotel” published some
time ago in the London “Guardian” newspaper on the sixtieth anniversary
of that terror bombing that left 92 dead, journalist George Galoway
reminded readers that it was perpetrated by Zionist terror group “Irgun
Zvai Leumi” led by one Menachem Beguin.
The “Guardian” adds that years later, as Likud Party leader, Beguin
“went on to be twice prime minister of Israel; his second period of
office saw Israel's "limited" 1982 invasion of southern Lebanon, which
quickly became an assault on the whole country and claimed many thousands
of lives.” The writer “recalled all this when I read that Binyamin
Netanyahu… Israeli prime minister and darling of CNN attended a commemoration…
of the Irgun's actions [of blowing up the King David Hotel], saying,
"It's very important to make the distinction between terror groups and
freedom fighters, and between terror action and legitimate military
“…There was no Hizbullah in 1946 or in 1948 when 750,000 Palestinians
were driven from their homes to make way for the state of Israel. There
was no Hizbullah in 1982; the organisation emerged after the Israeli
invasion, after the massacres at Sabra and Shatilla refugee camps”.
Years later in 1978, the Global Power Masters awarded terrorist leader
Menahem Beguin the Nobel “Peace“ Prize. So much for peace…
God Bless Zion’s Bombs!
Of course, during his visit to Israel Mr. Romney pledged unflinching
US support for Israel should he become the next tenant in the White
House (ho, hum… so what else is new?).
No doubt, he knows only too well that such pledges are vital if he is
to rally the support of America’s powerful pro-Israel lobby and tap
into their gigantic campaign money sloshing capabilities.
But we’re not just talking about purely Jewish lobbies like AIPAC
American Israeli Public Affairs Committee, the American Jewish Congress
or the ADL. We’re also talking about economically and politically
very powerful right-wing fundamentalist “Christian Zionist” evangelical
groups, who in their own religious zeal see the return of the Jewish
people (some of them, anyway) to the Holy Land as fulfillment of Biblical
prophecy and thus, “the work of God” (!).
Don’t laugh…. Wasn’t it Born-Again-Christian George W Bush who once
famously admitted that “God told me to invade Iraq, and I did…”?
The King David Hotel terror bombing is just one of many such episodes
involving Israeli founding fathers. Itzakh Shamir, another former
Israeli Likud Party prime minister who recently died at age 96, in those
“good old days” led another Zionist terrorist group: The Stern Gang.
Stern carried out a famous “freedom fighter” escapade on 17th September
1948 assassinating United Nation’s Security Council negotiator
in Palestine Count Folk Bernadotte, when he was in Jerusalem trying
to negotiate peace between Arabs and Jews by giving both Israelis and
Palestinians their respective sovereign nation-states.
Sabra and Shatilla mass assassin Ariel Sharon would also go on to become
yet another Likud prime minister of Israel.
Barking up the wrong tree?
Global public opinion, however, is hardly ever told about the fact that
there is and always has been very sophisticated and powerful Zionist
Terrorism. Today, it has grown into a veritable high-tech State-sponsored
Terrorist system, counting with the expertise of intel agencies like
Israel’s Mossad whose motto is “By way of deception, thou shalt do war”:
truly, they are unmatched experts at erasing their own tracks.
It was Russian physiologist Ivan Pavlov who once famously programmed
a dog to repeatedly associate a ringing bell with feed-time so that,
after a while, every time Pooch heard the bell he would start drooling
at the mouth, irrespective of whether he was fed or not.
Well, today it’s people’s minds that “drool” at the cry of “Terrorism!”,
seeing “Muslim Terrorists” everywhere, even though “others” might be
doing the terror…
For many decades, this has been fueled by all sorts of mass psychology
techniques. For example, Hollywood-promoted ethnic profiling where
just about every terrorist crack pot is characterized as an Arab-garbed,
bearded Muslim fanatic called Mohammed, Hamid or Ali.
So, be warned: if elected, Mr. Romney as did all American Presidents
over the past half century will continue America’s “war on terror”
working ever so close with Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud Party, whose founders
like Mr. Beguin and Mr. Shamir were themselves cruel and violent terrorist
leaders, er, sorry, “freedom fighters”.
Good if I do it; bad if you do it…
Let’s now walk across to Palestine. There we learn that their
military organizations like Hezbollah and Hamas have been branded “terrorist
organizations” by the US, UK and Israeli governments.
Basic political common sense tells us that a nation’s armed forces
whether in the US, Russia, China, Brazil or Israel must be subordinated
to its Nation-State. But what is Palestine to do to defend itself
against Israeli terror, if they’re not allowed to have a Nation-State?
Enter Hezbollah and Hamas. Sure, it’s easy to disqualify them
as “terrorist organizations”, but using the same criteria would the
Western Powers reclassify the French Resistance during world war two,
for example, as a “terror organization” simply because they refused
to passively accept the German military invasion of their country?
You can’t have it both ways: either the French Resistance, Irgun and
Stern, Hamas and Hezbollah are all “freedom fighters” or, they should
all be branded “terrorist organizations”.
The West must understand that you can’t have your cake and eat it, too.
