“When you tear out a man's tongue, you are not proving him a liar, you're only telling the world that you fear what he might say.”
George R.R. Martin, A Clash of Kings
Following Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s accusation at the UN that Israel was carrying out a “war of genocide” in Gaza, Israel’s lapdog, the U.S., strongly condemned his speech which it described as offensive. U.S. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said President Abbas's speech “included offensive characterisations that were deeply disappointing . . . Such provocative statements are counterproductive and undermine efforts to create a positive atmosphere and restore trust between the parties.”
Ms. Psaki — like most Americans including African Americans who are themselves still subject to racism and stereotyping — remains in a state of abysmal denial by apparently finding nothing offensive about the U.S. supporting and financing Israel’s persistent and irrefutable crimes against the Palestinian people. Her statement on behalf of the U.S. State Department — exercising a superpower’s inalienable right to double standards and hyper hypocrisy — would also suggest that Israel’s recent barbaric Operation Protective Edge — 2,100 Palestinians killed including 501 children, 11,000 wounded, and the untold destruction of the social infrastructure with medical facilities, schools, and homes being razed to the ground — was part of Israel’s efforts to “create a positive atmosphere and restore trust between the parties.”
The U.S. — a nation in a steady but certain moral decline — is continuously oblivious to the reality that Zionist Apartheid Israel is an arrogant, supremacist, self-centred, racist nation that was built on the premise that its people were chosen above all others by God himself; that Israel is a corrupt and avaricious nation that justifies its theft of Palestinian land and the expulsion and/or murder of its indigenous occupants with fabricated Biblical bunkum alleging the land was promised to the Israelites by God (http://biblehub.com/genesis/15-18.htm); and that Israel is an avowed self-appointed “God chosen” nation unashamedly devoid of any human decency, contemptuous of international law, and bent on the ethnic cleansing of the indigenous Palestinian people.
In order for such an evil, rapacious nation to continue pursuit of its diabolic goals and to maintain international toleration for its boundless racial brutality against the Palestinians, it employs every conceivable underhand and criminal tactic ranging from Machiavellian mischief to mass murder. Consequently in response to increased international condemnation for its most recent genocidal assault on Gaza, Israel has ramped up the pressure — particularly on the U.S. and other Western nations — with cunningly disguised gifts and donations to political and institutional leaders so as to ensure continued political support and complicit toleration of its abhorrent racist criminality. Such Zionist generosity — facilitated by a more than $3 billion U.S. annual aid package while 50 million Americans live below the poverty line (http://www.npr.org/blogs/money/2013/11/06/243498168/how-many-americans-live-in-poverty) — creates a financial dependency on such donations amongst Western leaders and buys their “loyalty” to pursue pro-Israeli policies that are at odds with the decent and honest standards of the majority of the people who elected them.
Apart from purchasing political support (many Western politicians have pocketed their 30 silver shekels), Israel operates a worldwide network of individuals and organisations serving as “watchers” and “suppressors” who monitor and silence criticism of Israeli crimes — whether in business, on campus, in the the media, or as part of political discourse — by discrediting the source with accusations of anti-Semitism. The latest case in point in an age-old campaign concerns professor Steven Salaita whose appointment at the University of Illinois was rescinded after he posted on Twitter remarks critical of Israel’s assault on Gaza. The University’s change of mind followed threats by donors to withdraw financial support if Salaita’s appointment was approved.
Zionist imposed censorship of free speech includes an Anti-Defamation League (http://www.globalresearch.ca/fbi-investigated-anti-defamation-league-adl-for-espionage/5360458) missive sent to top administrators at several U.S. universities and colleges supposedly offering “information and recommendations about how to respond to conflicts that may arise on your campus due to the recent conflict in Gaza.” The ADL’s letter — hallmarked with the usual Israeli hypocritical chutzpah — actually accused critics of Israeli criminality of “stifling dialogue . . . refusing to work with pro-Israel and Jewish student groups” and of coercing educational institutions to “engage in ‘Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions’ activities.” Also included was a warning that 23 September 2014 would be a day of “action on college campuses” by groups critical of Israel such as American Muslims for Palestine.
The American people who are constantly obsessed with the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment regarding the “right to keep and bear arms” are apparently unconcerned with the Constitution’s First Amendment:
“The First Amendment guarantees freedoms concerning religion, expression, assembly, and the right to petition. It forbids Congress from both promoting one religion over others and also restricting an individual’s religious practices. It guarantees freedom of expression by prohibiting Congress from restricting the press or the rights of individuals to speak freely. It also guarantees the right of citizens to assemble peaceably and to petition their government [otherwise now known as the Knesset].”
It is no secret that pro-Israel pressure groups have been orchestrating covert, long-term campaigns to infiltrate the much used online Wikipedia — covering virtually all topics with over two million articles in English — to rewrite Palestinian history by substituting crude Zionist propaganda in place of fact, and by gradually taking control of Wikipedia administrative structures to ensure that such changes either remain unchallenged or undetected. One such group, Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA) has always adopted the tactic of accusing anyone criticising Israel — including editors and reporters of the Israeli Haaretz newspaper — of being “extreme” and participating in “radical anti-Israel activity.” Israel’s military campaign to ethnically cleanse the Palestinian people is reliant on the control and suppression of the true facts in accordance with a tested and proven Nazi principle.
“Let me control the media and I will turn any nation into a herd of pigs.”
Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels whose use of words as a weapon resulted in brutality and cruelty that continues to affect the world to this very day.
Ever since Israel’s contentious and illegally bought and paid for inception — the indigenous Palestinians never acquiesced to having their lands stolen — Israel has earned very high ratings in the annals of human iniquity: an iniquity that can and must be terminated with unsullied truth and by brave, decent people everywhere.
