The atrocities of Gaza are now legend
The treatment of the Palestinians is common knowledge
But human nature is holistic, and the ruthlessness is not confined only to the Palestinians, but to everyone, even the Jews.
The fanatical religion of Israeli nationalism/Jewish supremacism embraces both secular and religious. A people have been raised on the holocaust and chosen religion.
And how many Jews know they are soldiers? And how many Jews really understand what the “game plan” is? A religious point of view is; “Every generation is dumber than the previous”. Hence “the dumbing down” media.
I believe the secular Jews know less about the true agenda than the religious. Either way pursuing crime is the order of the day.
Most actions and motivations are justified by God. “God takes from some and gives to others” is a familiar refrain.
Apart from the Palestinians the war is also against Islam, Communism, Nazism, against anyone challenging the fiat money interest system.
There really isn’t any capitalism left. In business if there is any substantial money involved, then protectzia is required. Clients come from “favours” by a mafia.
The Judaic world now requires everyone to betray their basic human instincts. It is only a question of degree. Many Israelis are now ruthless, no regard for human dignity: framing, spiking, torturing, killing, kidnapping, mostly sanctioned in law. Not that the law has any value.
Our endless wars continue, rather reminiscent of the last Tzars. Yet unlike Tzarist Russia, GM and impoverished food might keep everyone from revolting.
But the empire’s undoing might come from the evil propogated, the constant onslaught of fear, false flags, confusion, the need for conflict, and the inability to allow people to trust one another.
There is no alternative to people organising, like they did against the Tzars, and unfortunately creating a totalitarianism. And as much as this organising applies to the people so it applies to the nations.
Will Gaza change the world?
Every act of aggression has unforeseen consequences. I’d rather not call the Gaza offensive a war, it is a carnage waged by F 16s.
Will it galvanize the world together? Will it cause people to identify the same brutality elsewhere?
Could it cause the Israelis to reassess themselves? Actually I don’t believe the Israeli attitude is grass roots, I think it is indoctrination, which means overthrowing the indoctrinators.
Will it lead to the collapse of Capitalism? Globalisation? Free Markets? That is what is paying for the carnage.
Will we all embrace Communism, Islam? Will it end Jewish rule?
Nothing will happen unless many millions take to the streets.
The protests have so far been in the hundreds and a few thousands, but I cannot ever remember such an international solidarity, the protests are happening in so many countries.
And how many myths will now be challenged?
The digital age seems to have backfired on the warmongers. But they cannot understand why. It has been going on for 7 years. Afghanistan and Iraq, why are people so upset about Gaza? Maybe the Israelis have used up too much good will? Maybe, as much as they feel supportive and involved in Iraq and Afghanistan, that has not been the public perception.
Who is happy nowadays? What have our rulers to offer us? And who could support our actions in Gaza, Iraq and Afghanistan. Tragic acts by tragic people bringing tragedy to our doorsteps.
Mondoweiss is leading with so many posts about how Israel’s actions will weaken or spell the end of the Israeli Lobby in the US.
I can understand his indignation and wishful thinking. But it is naive. America (and much of the West) are the lobby. It is like saying Israels actions will end the US financial system. That might be on the cards, but it is not related to the current Israeli actions.
Although the American financial collapse is related to the lobby’s NeoCon wars. Only a revolution will alter the imperialistic policies. And I would hope it is a spiritual one.
It would be wise to equate Gaza with Iraq and Afghanistan, and the possible wars with Pakistan and Iran. Short of a revolution maybe a General Strike. Maybe a coup. Or losing a war.
The following is the comment I left on his post:
The real lobby is hidden and fierce. Pelosi and everyone else obeys. They are of the same makeup as the ones ordering the carnage in Gaza, Iraq and Afghanistan. They are also very happy to hear jewish voices of disapproval, such as this blog. Then they show there are good Jews. America IS the Jewish Lobby
It is not going anywhere
They listen to no one
Not the Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians and not the Americans and not the British, and not the Good jews.
And they know violence Very Well!

And here are two comments that followed mine:
Find your birthdate in the Islamic calender here:
I was born on the first of Ramadan!!!! That must be auspicious
In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
In the Holy Quran we read:
“They ask thee about the new moons. Say, These are means for measuring time for people’s affairs and for the Pilgrimage” (Holy Quran, Ch. 2 V. 190)
For me the Jewish religion, like all others, is an incarnation of the most childish superstitions Albert Einstein 1879-1955
I stumbled across a Philosophical post about who we are and what we do. The writer is obviously lucid. Click the More link at the end to see the whole post.
And this posts title too came from the quoted blog’s page
And so do these quotes:
Truth will set you free
Some Irony from the Bible.

The intellectual world is deeply conformist.
Friends, as the known world collapses around our ears and our leaders run around like headless chooks not knowing what to do, perhaps it’s time we did a quick reality check, really confronted ourselves, tried to cut through all the crap we’ve been fed about what we are, what we should be, how the world should be.
Where to start? Why not at the beginning? Each one of us began life the same way. We were pushed, pulled or extracted from a woman’s body while she shrieked in pain. We were covered in blood and tissue and someone belted us and we started yelling. Eventually we were cleaned up and then proceeded to drink from our mother’s breasts which then led to our first urination and the expelling of faeces, a rather unfortunate, messy process that continues throughout our lives.
Eventually we learned to control our expelling functions and how to sit on a toilet, one all white and shiny, and how to wipe ourselves and wash our hands. We also learned to transport food into our mouths in a reasonable manner, one which did not put food all over our faces or our clothing.
At a guess: Jesus was trying to say there is more to life than materialism. Presumably Budha and Krishna were saying similar.
Unfortunately I see creature comforts and gadgets as fun. But nowadays, food & shelter are most important.
My materialism is part human nature & part culture. This is a culture based on advertising, our senses constantly being shown a pretty woman if we own this or that.
It is curious Islam forbids the human form in advertising. Muhammad must’ve been a channeler. His teachings include the old testament and Jesus and this must broaden the appeal.
All the poor jews relish their Jewishness, though they probably don’t know as much about judaism as the rich and powerful jews.
That Jesus kicked out the money lenders from the temple makes me think there is some part of the religion that endears itself to money lending. I mean it is the same profession that has been going on for thousands of years. I have read that he died three days after evicting the money lenders. So let’s tread with caution.
The sad reality is, it is the wars that are unhinging jewish control. And nothing can start the Jews or Israelis protesting for peace. These are poignant words, it is no good protesting for peace when the bombs are arriving.
But the money lenders are counting money and barrels of oil, and looking at Iran and Russia getting richer, and feeding us all adages and rituals.
Jews for Jesus I always found distasteful, guess it was a prejudice. What about Jews for Muhammad?
Here’s a song:

An expert on European history at Tel Aviv University, Sand drew on extensive historical and archaeological research to support not only this claim but several more — all equally controversial. Source
A little background info:
TEL AVIV // No one is more surprised than Shlomo Sand that his latest academic work has spent 19 weeks on Israel’s bestseller list – and that success has come to the history professor despite his book challenging Israel’s biggest taboo.
Dr Sand argues that the idea of a Jewish nation – whose need for a safe haven was originally used to justify the founding of the state of Israel – is a myth invented little more than a century ago. Source

The myth of the ‘Jewish people’
Jonathan Cook describes (or here) the Israeli best seller When and How Was the Jewish People Invented? There does not appear to have been any serious attempt to refute the main points made by its author, Shlomo Sand (who waited until he was a professor to publish the book, as “There is a price to be paid in Israeli academia for expressing views of this sort.”):
- the idea that Jews existed as a people separate from their religion is completely new, with no basis in Jewish thought, and was created by Zionist ideologues in the nineteenth centur[...]
- the kingdoms of David and Solomon are legends;
- there never was an exile as the Romans did not exile people and all evidence shows that the Jews stayed on their lands[...]
- the idea of exile may have come from early Christians, [...]
- the modern Zionist idea of Jews being obligated to return from exile to the Promised Land was entirely alien to Judaism,[...]
- most of today’s Jews have no historical connection to Israel;
“It is not taught in Israeli schools but most of the early Zionist leaders, including David Ben Gurion [Israel's first prime minister], believed that the Palestinians were the descendants of the area’s original Jews.
