Israel is walking blindfolded by its leaders towards its end, the same kind of end that befell Mubarak and in the news Gadhafi and the Libyan people.


Open Season: Hunting Black People in Libya

Racism against blacks in Libya…antisemitism against Jews in Israel… This picture could very well be Jews very soon


The blindfolds are literally being placed on Jewish people by the Israeli leaders Netanyahu, Barak and others


The same conspiracy exists against Israel as existed against Gadhafi.


First of all there is NATO and here there is a new element in NATO where Al Jazeera and Qatar were instrumental along with the BBC and American Media in the war on Gadhafi.


The Media is not separate from the NATO war machine but is a central part of it.


The taking of Tripoli by NATO was a highly organized affair, which involved CIA bribing of Gadhafi leaders in Tripoli, in a psyops operation which involved a mock-up somewhere in Qatar of the Green square in Tripoli, to broadcast images that the city had fallen to the “Rebels”.


And so on…the list is endless…the city of Tripoli was taken essentially by the group affiliated with Al Qaida, with the road ahead prepared by British apache helicopters and continual bombardment from the air.


This went along with a racist regime of terror against BLACK Libyans and BLACK Africans


The use of racism is central in the strategy of the New World Order of Soros.


(Jews think of this experience…Racism against blacks, but anti-Semitism against Jews is far, far bigger, a thousand times at least bigger)


Jews of the world, you are so vulnerable in this situation.


Soros himself is a Jew, but is a Jew who stated recently that he was highly pleasured to be involved in the removal of items of value from off Jews who were on their way to the DEATH CAMPS. You know that sort of Jew. That sort of New World Order.


Israel in the face of this is a sitting duck, due to its leadership.


Remember that Gadhafi made in his life one serious mistake. This was when he met Blair in that tent, who was acting as proxy for Bush Jnr., and when he agreed to pay for something he did not do (Lockerbie…done by Syria/Iran/Palestinians)


He also agreed to dismantle his nuclear preparations etc.


THAT was his only mistake…to think that there could be a peace with NATO and the NOW (new World Order)


That was the piece of collaboration by the desert fighter that has led to his family being butchered/hounded


Netanyahu, Barak, and a large section of Jewish leadership, especially American Jewish leadership, is up to its neck in this collaboration.


I will not deal here with Robert Spencer as Spencer is not Jewish. But Spencer claims to be anti-Jihadist. And what a snake Spencer has turned out to be on this Libyan issue.


Pamela Geller is however Jewish and makes plenty of it. But Geller has turned out to be a big BIG promoter of NATO, and the American soldiers of NATO.


When these American NATO soldiers Geller is so fond of turn on Israel (as they will do and soon) what will Geller do then? Support her (US) soldiers? Or change her mind at the last minute? But the last minute is always too late Geller, because you have already by then betrayed and led Jews down the wrong path.


But back to Netanyahu, Barak, Feiglin and all the rest of these old fogeys of bourgeois Zionism…


Young Israeli, Jewish and Zionist patriots must urgently open their eyes and must organize quite independently to take political power in a new movement.


  • Internationally defend Gadhafi
  • IDF must bomb Iran’s Nuclear
  • War on Gaza and Lebanon to destroy Hamas and Hizbullah
  • Do not allow a single Jew to be harmed, much less murdered, by anti-Semites inside the Jewish Homeland
  • Create the 4international inside Israel
  • Replace the present leadership by a fighting leadership

The reality of the hesitation of Barak/Netanyahu is covered in the recent article by

Read it all. this is part:

Egyptian preventatives and Israel’s passivity in the face of an assault known to be approaching afford the Palestinian terrorist group, which is sponsored and armed by Iran, extra leverage and strategic leeway in its contest with Israel.


Sunday, Aug. 21, after accepting an Egyptian-brokered truce for halting the missile blitz from Gaza, Netanyahu commented that Israel had gained the upper hand: The Palestinians had landed themselves with a new negative equation: Their attacks from Sinai would henceforth incur retaliation in Gaza.


Jihad Islami is now turning this equation on its head by demonstrating that Israeli attacks on Palestinian terrorist targets in the Gaza Strip bring forth Palestinian reprisals from Sinai.


They calculate correctly as it turned out this week that the Egyptian border offers them no obstacle to cross-border terror, whereas Israeli counteraction is stopped short.




Held back from its famous preemptive tactics by Israel’s leaders out of fear of further strains on relations with the military rulers in Cairo, the Israeli army’s deterrent strength is progressively sapped and the pro-Iranian Palestinian terrorists are getting the last laugh even before they strike.


They have wound up holding the initiative in the next round. It is up to them to decide for how much longer – days or weeks – reinforced Israeli units must stay on maximum preparedness and Israel’s main routes to the south, Highways 10 and 12, stay closed to civilian traffic. They can keep Israel on tenterhooks as long as they like before deciding to press the trigger.



It is now certain that the combined forces of Cameron/Hague, Sarkozy, and Obama have placed extreme Islam, and in the form of Al Qaida at that, in direct charge of Libya.


File:Capture of Tripoli by the Ottomans 1551.jpg

The Siege of Tripoli in 1551 allowed the Ottomans to capture the city from the Knights of St. John


Much has been made that although there was an Islam presence in the transitional Council, it was a small presence.


But it only takes a small presence; such is the nature of politics and Jihad.


According to the group leading the assault on the Gadhafi compound was that around the man called Abd al Hakim Belhadj


Nobody has explained how the forces which took Tripoli suddenly appeared.


They appeared because NATO dropped them off in the Harbour of Tripoli.


It is remarkable that this simple fact has been overlooked, or rather it may be more correct to say hidden, by the Media.


Then there is the suggestion by that the CIA bribed (we are talking big money here) Gadhafi generals in Tripoli


Also Stephen lendman, who has access to independent journalists, and I do not mean press TV, reports that these independent journalists felt themselves in great danger, and a moment of reflection on past events and past history would indicate that they were correct to be very afraid


NATO does have its ground troops there, namely the SAS and American elite killer forces.


The feeling was created of panic. Panic is a classic action in war.


There is a report that in the beginning there was a mock-up of the Green Square which was used by Al Jazeera, which is now part of NATO, to produce this effect of panic, and “it is all over”.


That may sound outlandish and far out. But I think it is highly possible, and indeed likely, given that we have many incidents of Media Thatre in the Muslim War against Israel, the el Dura case being the one that comes quickest to mind.


Note you do not recreate Green Square, you just have to give the impression of it being Green Square. It is theatre after all.


Remember people have already been primed by horror stories about Gadhafi, and about what a nice world it would be if the devilish Gadhafi would just surrender and accept his true vocation as appearing in the Hague Kangaroo Court


This is a war which has been run at all levels (especially the Media level) by NATO.


It looks as if NATO, that is Cameron and Obama, has been fighting this war on behalf of savages and racists.


We are in 2011 and yet people can shrug their shoulders when they hear of a you tube video which shows the plaintive fate of a black man being tortured by human savages, the look in this black man’s face as he sees the cutlass which will be used to butcher his neck.


There are certain kinds of people who are capable of shrugging their shoulders at anything.


The position of the Islamists in the Maghreb towards black Africans has always been racist. In fact it was and is well known that Arabs were slave traders and slave owners, and in fact in Sudan at least 10 years ago there was slave ownership of black Africans in elitist Arab Sudanese households.


From a report on BBC this morning it seems that black Africans in Libya are cowering in their houses rather than get on a boat in the harbour to escape…now that IS terror. There is a regime of terror in Libya now against black Libyans, and especially against anybody from places like Mali.


Gadhafi provided all with free Health Care, and all children from wherever went to school, again free.


It was a type of socialism. A strange “socialism” but what he brought forward in that tribal country. Now there will be a hell for leather grab to make profits out of Libya. The Germans, the French, the British, the Americans are lining up.


Their main interest is profit.


But it would be totally wrong to think that this is just a matter of making money.


It is essentially a question of power. There is an alliance here and the alliance is with really shady forces, such as this man Abd al Hakim Belhadj, and this is a man who we should investigate. Perhaps people, a new generation of truth seekers, can investigate this man.


Do not forget that when the Nazis went into the countries such as Lithuania they soon found that they could not work alone, they were too weak.


What did the Nazis do?


They linked up with collaborators in the form of Lithuanian racists, using this as just ONE example of course.


Now it is a fact that these very collaborators were the ones who went on to create the original CIA, and laid the basis for the whole of CIA methods in the world as we know it today.


Is this not what we are experiencing today? Different conditions. A different situation. But there are vast similarities.


Perhaps with their total and all obsessive control of the Media the new Nazis are our present capitalist governments who do not know what the hell to do with…and here I use an example Spain with its 46 per cent of youth unemployed. I mean that must surpass even Weimar levels.


And they are prepared to alliance with such characters as those who I saw on that horrific video.


The Media as we know it no longer reports the news.


I had an experience of this in a graphic form about a week ago.


At about 1 o’clock in the afternoon I picked up the attack on Jews on the Eilat highway in Southern Israel from across the border in Sinai.


I immediately put the story on a blog which I run and I run it alone. There is nobody else at all to help me. But I found no difficulty at all. The news went up almost as it happened. What is there to think about!


I tuned in then to BBC World Service at 2 o’clock. Also at 3, at 4, and at 5 o’clock.


It is remarkable to me that there was not one word about this attack on the BBC.


Why SO remarkable?


Because it was the first major attack on Israel since the downfall of Mubarak and all that that means.


The story was broken on the BBC World Service only at 6 o’clock on that eventful and I believe time will tell historical day.


They the BBC probably have hundreds working on this. How could I tell my small readership at 1 o’clock but the BBC waited? They essentially waited for 5 hours. And they have I bet hundreds working on their foreign affairs.


The answer is that the BBC edits the news, and edits in a bad way as far as truth is concerned.


The book by Christopher Simpson remains central:


The information about how the CIA was formed, essentially based upon the anti-communist work of the Nazi called Reinhard Gehlen, was produced by the author called Christopher Simpson in his very famous book called “Blowback”




This book was published in 1988 and was based upon documents released under the American freedom of Information Act, which itself is based upon the First Amendment of the US Constitution.


The book is available through Amazon but has to be bought in second hand form.


Christopher Simpson is a very serious scholar.


Also this Wikipedia entry is factual re Gehlen

Reinhard Gehlen (3 April 1902 – 8 June 1979) was a General in the German Army during World War II, who served as chief of intelligence-gathering on the Eastern Front. After the war, he was recruited by the United States military to set up a spy ring directed against the Soviet Union (known as the Gehlen Organization), and eventually became head of the West German intelligence apparatus. He served as the first President of the Federal Intelligence Service until 1968. Gehlen is considered one of the most legendary Cold War spymasters.



People may think “Oh but that was a long time ago” and things are no longer the same. Let sleeping dogs lie etc. and other such “common sense” slogans


But is it a long time ago? In fact it is a very short time ago.


The historical reality is that the US emerged out of the war in a strong condition, while Britain was shattered. Thus the US took over the role of leader of western capitalism.


The moves which the US ruling class made at that precise point, 1945 and the years towards 1950 and the years of the early 50s are of great importance, because it was then that the trends were laid and the basics of working inside conflict was created.


The following years were punctuated by the much forgotten CIA role in Indonesia, and later Vietnam, and those are the great connectors to Afghanistan and Yugoslavia. But Yugoslavia leads straight to the NeoCons in Iraq, now Mubarak and Gadhafi.


This all means that to understand the reality of the present it is necessary to see the continuity from the past.


Gehlen was and is US today as far as its foreign policy is concerned. Gehlen of course is now dead, in fact he himself was not the creator of the CIA, but he was ultimately only the “tool” of the CIA.


It was the patterns of thinking that were set and that leads into the present, to enable us today to entangle the webs of deceit that are being spun for us in places like Libya during the past 6 months especially.



A suspected Gaddafi loyalist is led away by rebel forces

Is this prisoner now dead, murdered essentially by Cameron, Hague and Obama!


Kim Sengupta and Portia Walker: Fierce fighting and wild rumours as hunt gathers pace

And they report the following:

…the discovery of a grim pile of corpses of executed men in the Bab al-Aziziya compound that had once been Colonel Gaddafi’s citadel offered grim evidence of retribution being exacted in the bloody civil war. A dozen bodies were seen by The Independent lying inside the complex with their hands tied behind their backs

The Libyan rebels have been meting out brutal treatment to sub-Saharan Africans in Tripoli, suspecting that they are Gaddafi loyalists

look at the fear on the face of the black man on the right, there is no doubt that these black Africans  are now all dead, butchered by the tools of Cameron and Obama



UN urges restraint as the rebels wreak their revenge on ‘loyalists’.


The Libyan rebels have been meting out brutal treatment to sub-Saharan Africans in Tripoli, suspecting that they are Gaddafi loyalists


 Almost all of the victims were black me


Around 30 men lay decomposing in the heat. Many of them had their hands tied behind their back, either with plastic handcuffs or ropes. One had a scarf stuffed into his mouth. Almost all of the victims were black men. Their bodies had been dumped near the scene of two of the fierce battles between rebel and regime forces in Tripoli.


“Come and see. These are blacks, Africans, hired by Gaddafi, mercenaries,” shouted Ahmed Bin Sabri, lifting the tent flap to show the body of one dead patient, his grey T-shirt stained dark red with blood, the saline pipe running into his arm black with flies. Why had an injured man receiving treatment been executed? Mr Sabri, more a camp follower than a fighter, shrugged. It was seemingly incomprehensible to him that anything wrong had been done.


 But the thirst for vengeance has been difficult to control, to which the morgues, hospitals and the urban killings fields of the Libyan capital bore testimony.


 But the mounting number of deaths of men from sub-Saharan Africa at the hands of the rebels – lynchings in many cases – raises disturbing questions about the opposition administration, the Transitional National Council (TNC) taking over as Libya’s government, and about Western backing for it.

The atrocities have apparently not been confined to Tripoli: Amnesty International has reported similar violence in the coastal town of Zawiyah, much of it against men from sub-Saharan Africa who, it has been claimed, were migrant workers.


The Foreign Office underlined that the apparent executions of pro-Gaddafi soldiers were as yet unverified.

A spokesman said: “We are aware of reports, but have no means of verifying them. We condemn all human rights abuses. The TNC leadership has made clear the need to avoid violence and reprisals and has repeatedly said that anyone found guilty of crimes will be held to account. We have emphasised the importance of this in our conversations with them. This is in stark contrast to Gaddafi, who continues to launch indiscriminate and violent attacks on the Libyan people.”


But, for some on the ground in Tripoli, a different view has taken hold. Since the start of the uprising last February the opposition has tried to portray the conflict as waged by patriotic Libyans against the dictator’s foreign hired guns. A few of the tales took fanciful turns, such as that about the crack team of female snipers, either Serbian or Colombian, depending on the version. But it was black males, very often migrant workers, who paid the lethal price after being accused of being mercenaries.


Only a few of the dead found at the roundabouts yesterday were in uniform.


“They were shooting at us and that is the reason they were killed,” said Mushab Abdullah, a 35-year-old rebel fighter from Misrata, pointing at the bodies. “It had been really tough at Abu Salim, because these mercenaries know that, without Gaddafi to protect them, they are in big trouble. That is why they were fighting so hard.”


His companion, Mohammed Tariq Muthar, counted them off on the fingers of his hand: “We have found mercenaries from Chad, Niger, Mali and Ghana, all with guns. And they took action against us.”

But, if the men had been killed in action, why did they have their hands tied behind their back? “Maybe they were injured, and they had to be brought to this hospital and the handcuffs were to stop them from attacking. And then something went wrong,” suggested Mr Abdullah.


Ethnic Libyan “collaborators”, too, have been the subject of the punitive attention of the revolutionaries.


The prison at Abu Salim,  had its doors flung open by the revolutionaries on Thursday, letting 4,000 inmates free. Now there is talk of using the complex for captured Gaddafi troops.


(concerning the independent media)

Meanwhile, Ahmed Safar Warfalla was being held in a temporary “cell”, a locked room at a school in the suburb of Tajoura. Mr Warfalla has been accused of spreading Gaddafi propaganda. Three Chadian “mercenaries” kept at the same place had already been transferred to jail and the local militia was considering what to do with him.

“They accuse me of a crime, but this is what I did,” said Mr Warfalla taking out a copy of the Koran from his pocket and pointing it to the sky. “Allah and Libya,” he shouted. “They have Nato technology? This is Arab, Muslim technology. We shall not be defeated.”


Meanwhile, RAF Tornado GR4 warplanes fired Cruise missiles at a bunker in Sirte, Col Gaddafi’s hometown which is continuing to stave off rebel attacks. Ahmed Bani, a military spokesman for the TNC, said “Maybe this will help. Maybe the mercenaries there will run away. This will allow the local people to rise up and we can bring this to a conclusion.”




On August 26, London Guardian writer Simon Jenkins headlined, “Libya is not an advertisement for intervention,” saying:

“Several claims….made about NATO’s involvement (have) little basis in reality,” including:

(1) Preventing a Benghazi massacre. It “was NATO propaganda.”

In fact, mass killing only began when NATO arrived and hasn’t stopped.

(2) Replacing Gaddafi to protect civilians and install a more democratic regime.

NATO plans occupation and puppet leaders taking orders from Washington, as well as plundering Libya for profit.

(3) “(N)o foreign troops on the ground” will be used.

“This NATO pledge was mendacious….British (and other Western) ground troops were extensively deployed in Libya,” arriving before conflict began last winter.

(4) “Britain was not taking sides in a foreign civil war.”

In fact, Washington, Britain, and other NATO countries partnered to oust Gaddafi. Insurgents, supported by air power, were recruited to do it. Western interests “most emphatically decided the fate of the Libyan people. (They) brought anarchy in the place of order….(They can’t) disown the consequences.”

From the start, Western leaders knew if they “toppled Gaddafi (they) would own the place. It was no good saying they “learn(ed) from Iraq. The lesson of Iraq was, don’t do it in the first place.”

Libya, in fact, is replicating it. NATO’s Operation Mermaid Dawn hoped to end it in Tripoli. “Mermaid” is Tripoli’s nickname. On August 20, it was launched from Sarim Street’s Ben Nabi mosque after Iftar, the breaking Ramadan’s fast.

Insurgents used mosque loud speakers to broadcast chants to Tripoli residents. NATO carpet bombing and strafing preceded and accompanied it to clear their way to advance unimpeded after initial loyalist counterattacks.


I have just checked output of Israpundit, Jihadwatch and Atlas Shrugs. They mumble on about everything but are ignoring the Islamist Fascist massacres of the black AFRICANS in Libya.


Conclusions are that we are in a new period of great danger to every independent state in the world, but above all to the independent state of Israel.


We can sum the situation in the world today like this


  1. NATO creates chaos
  2. Inside that chaos Islam moves in

The result is going to be Fascist dictatorship and this is indeed a very handy solution for NATO, a result much to be desired for NATO, because the ruling capitalist classes have determined that they cannot rule in the old way, through parliamentary democracy any more.


Already in Britain judges have reacted to the riots by doubling prison sentences, a clearly political decision by the so-called independent judiciary


Already in Britain also the police have pre-empted by arresting prior to the Nottinghill Carnival. They arrest for nothing. They say it is for other offenses while at the same time, in the same breath, saying it is pre-emptive.


In Spain Spanish police beat up a citizen after dragging away his girlfriend. The beating was reminiscent of the Rodney King beating but there is hardly a murmur. He is white Spanish.


On a Spanish radio station, Talk Radio Europe, they are all attacking Israel AFTER Israel was attacked from the Sinai. (By the way that radio station is owned by a British Jew called Nathan Thomas!!!)


Meanwhile the Spanish political elites in the PSOE and PP have formed a virtual alliance. They have changed the Constitution which means that Spanish workers and poor MUST pay for the economic crisis


Spencer and Geller have completely missed what has happened in Egypt and Libya. Spencer and Geller keep squealing that “We told you so”


But they never told anybody to defend Mubarak at all costs, and they never told anybody to defend Gadhafi at all costs. Regardless of differences with Mubarak and Gadhafi!


It was the same kinds of betrayals that allowed the Nazis to take the power in 1933, that is different circumstances, but the same principle, you must at all costs stop the Nazis from taking power.


The Left is anti-Semitic. But really the only ones to oppose NATO in Libya has been the anti-Semitic left.


Israel missed a big big opportunity by not allying with Mubarak and Gadhafi.


Jews have missed a big big chance. Blame the leadership.



It was a glorious day, fitting for the dedication to Aqsa Parvez and all of the courageous young honor killing victims who dared to be free. You are not forgotten.

They, too, are a living embodiment of Henry’s “Give me liberty or give me death.”

Aqsa was there. She moved through the trees.






She and Robert Spencer yesterday spoke at the grove of trees that has been planted near Jerusalem in memory of this young Muslim girl and other young Muslim girls murdered by Islam


This report of the trial gives an idea of what it is about. It is very touching that these trees will be growing near Jerusalem, the city of a people who have suffered so much, and growing on through the coming years, in silent memory of these girls, the only sounds heard being the beautiful sounds of nature, in memory…


“In a stunning development, Aqsa Parvez’s father and her youngest brother admitted on Tuesday they strangled her in her bedroom.

Muhammad Parvez, 60, and son Waqas, 29, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the 16-year-old Mississauga high school student’s death on the morning of Dec. 10, 2007.

But whose bare hands were around the Grade 11 student’s neck remains unknown.

In pleading guilty, neither the father nor the son took sole blame for the murder, admitting only that they both were responsible for causing the neck compressions that led to her death.

Aqsa’s blood was on Muhammad’s hands when he was arrested after he called 911 and confessed to using his hands to murder his youngest daughter, according to the agreed statement filed as an exhibit in a Brampton courtroom.

DNA results also showed Waqas’s DNA was under Aqsa’s right hand finger nails, court was told.

At the time, Aqsa’s death sent shock waves through the GTA prompting heated debate on the hijab, the challenges of integration for newcomers, and whether or not her death was the GTA’s first crime of honour or a horrible case of domestic violence.

The young girl ran away twice from home, seeking to have more freedom than she could enjoy living under her father’s rigid rules in a traditional Islamic family, court was told.

Although her father eventually allowed her to wear jeans and shirts to school, instead of her traditional Islamic attire, she was still not permitted to hang out with friends outside the home. Her father refused to let her speak with friends, especially boys, on the telephone and forbid her from getting a part-time job.

Muhammad also disapproved of, many of her friends and blamed them for his daughter’s poor marks and failing grades.

Aqsa lived in a bedroom in the basement of their home on Longhorn Trail in Mississauga. Her bedroom was the only one in the house without a door, Crown prosecutor Sandra Caponecchia told the court, reading from the agreed statement.

The only way for others, including her parents, to get to their room in the basement from inside the house was to walk through Aqsa’s doorless bedroom.

In the days before her death, she told friends her father swore on the Qur’an that he would kill her if she ever ran away again, Caponecchia said.

Aqsa’s mother Anwar Jan and her two other sons, Muhammad Shan and Ahtisham, were in court for the dramatic day’s developments.

In a chilling police interview on the day of Aqsa’s murder, her distraught mother, crying and talking out loud to herself, was recorded as saying she thought her husband was only going to “break legs and arms,” but instead “killed her.”

“Oh God, Oh God. . . Oh my Aqsa, you should have listened,” Anwar Jan said out loud in a police interview room. “Everyone tried to make you understand. Everyone begged you, but you did not listen. . .”

She earlier told police in her interview that she advised her husband to let their daughter go, not to kill her.

When she asked him why he killed her, he told her: “This is my insult. My community will say you have not been able to control your daughter. This is my insult. She is making me naked.”

She said her husband never said he would kill her.

She told the officer that in her Pakistani culture, if a daughter doesn’t listen to her parents, she is punished. “Either they kill the girl or turn her out of the house,” she said.

If Aqsa had been living in Pakistan, her husband would have “killed her there too. . .”

Aqsa was slain around 7:30 a.m.

Muhammad called 911 just before 8 a.m. and confessed to strangling his daughter. Waqas was initially charged with obstructing police but then was suddenly arrested six months later and charged with first-degree murder

His arrest came soon after police intercepted a conversation between him and a driver, who worked for the same tow truck company.

In the electronically-recorded conversation, Waqas admitted choking her until she died.–father-and-son-plead-guilty-to-murdering-aqsa-parvez


Larry Derfner





Lauren Booth and Hamas…same as Derfner really






I think a lot of people who realize that the occupation is wrong also realize that the Palestinians have the right to resist it – to use violence against Israelis, even to kill Israelis, especially when Israel is showing zero willingness to end the occupation, which has been the case since the Netanyahu government took over (among other times in the past).

But people don’t want to say this, especially right after a terror attack like this last one that killed eight Israelis near Eilat. And there are lots of good reasons for this reticence, such as: You don’t want to further upset your own countrymen when they are grieving, you don’t want to say or write anything that could be picked up by Israel’s enemies and used as justification for killing more of us. (These are good reasons; fear of being called a traitor, for instance, is a bad reason.)

But I think it’s time to overcome this reticence, even at the cost of enflaming the already enflamed sensitivities of the Israeli public, because this unwillingness to say outright that Palestinians have the right to fight the occupation, especially now, inadvertently helps keep the occupation going.

When we say that the occupation is a terrible injustice to the Palestinians, but then say that Palestinian terror/resistance is a terrible injustice to Israel, we’re saying something that’s patently illogical to anyone but a pacifist, and there aren’t many pacifists left, certainly not in Israel. The logical, non-pacifist mind concludes that both of those statements can’t be true – that if A is hurting B and won’t stop, then B damn sure has the right to hurt A to try to make him stop. But if everybody, not only the Right but the Left, too, is saying that B, the Palestinians, don’t have the right to hurt A, the Israelis, then the logical mind concludes that Israel must not be hurting the Palestinians after all, the occupation must not be so bad, the occupation must not be hurting the Palestinians at all – because if it was, they would have the right to hurt us back, and everybody agrees that they don’t. So when they shoot at us or fire rockets at us, it’s completely unprovoked, which gives us the right, the duty, to bash them and bash them until they stop – and anybody who tries to deny us that right doesn’t have a leg to stand on, so we’re just going to keep right on bashing them. And when the Palestinians complain about the occupation, we Israelis can honestly say we don’t know what they’re talking about.

This, I’m convinced, is how the Left’s ritual condemnations of terror are translated in the Israeli public’s mind – as justification for the occupation and an iron-fist military policy.…




I focus on one sentence from the above and I think this may be enough:



I think a lot of people who realize that the occupation is wrong also realize that the Palestinians have the right to resist it – to use violence against Israelis, even to kill Israelis, especially when Israel is showing zero willingness to end the occupation, which has been the case since the Netanyahu government took over (among other times in the past).

But people don’t want to say this, especially right after a terror attack like this last one that killed eight Israelis near Eilat. And there are lots of good reasons for this reticence, such as: You don’t want to further upset your own countrymen when they are grieving, you don’t want to say or write anything that could be picked up by Israel’s enemies and used as justification for killing more of us. (These are good reasons; fear of being called a traitor, for instance, is a bad reason.)

It is the last sentence I am after. Why is fear of being called a traitor, to the Jews, a bad reason. If there is a danger of that you would think it would make Derfner reflect.
The essence is that he says “Palestinians” have the right to kill Jews.
Derfner also gave his backing to the al Durah france 2 Hoax as this by Augean stables shows

MOS meets Al Durah Forgery: Larry Derfner Weighs In

Larry Derfner has an op-ed at the Jerusalem Post on the Al Durah Affair which lays out in a quite striking fashion the aggressive aspect of the mentality of the Masochistic Omnipotence crowd (MOS) crowd. In the Dreyfus Affair the term “intellectual” was coined to describe someone who was capable of looking at the empirical evidence and changing his or her mind. Derfner’s rant suggests that the term could not, by the remotest stretch of the imagination, be applied to him. On the contrary, one has to wonder what could drive him to such heights of irrationality as to assault people who call into question so base a story as that of al Durah.

I have already discussed some of Larry Derfner’s writings, whose liberal cognitive egocentrism stands out even in a crowd of his friends, so I guess this piece didn’t come as a complete surprise to me. But I must confess, the vehemence and adolescent quality of the rhetoric and the lack of any substance in the argument (the best he gets is quoting Fallows which is now five years old), did surprise me.

But sometimes surprises are good because they make you think about things in new ways. I have long meditated on the peculiar attachment of the Israeli left to the al Durah story, and now, Larry Derfner’s rant sheds new light on a puzzling phenomenon.


So the big question is not his support for the killing of Jews but rather why he is allowed to live in Israel, and even more, be paid a wage by the Jerusalem Post



Derfner took the piece down and replaced it with “apologies” but the big issues have not gone away.



I have an apology to make for “The awful, necessary truth about Palestinian terror,” which I posted here and on Facebook on Sunday. I didn’t mean to say anything “good” about Palestinian terror against Israelis – I see nothing good in it whatsoever, and I thought I made that clear, but I see now that I didn’t.

I wrote that because of the occupation, Palestinians are “justified” in attacking, even killing Israelis, that they have the “right” to do so. Later on I stressed that I didn’t want them to kill my countrymen, and that I would do anything necessary to stop it. I meant those two points to show that I wasn’t “for” terrorism, that while I thought the occupation justified it, that didn’t mean I supported it. But I see now that the distance from “justified” to “support” is way, way too short – and I am as far away as anybody can be from supporting attacks on Israel and Israelis.

Writing that the killing of Israelis was justified and a matter of right took a vile image and attached words of seeming approval to it. This, I’m afraid, produced an “obscene” effect, as one critic wrote. I don’t want to write obscenity about Israel. I didn’t mean to, and I deeply regret it.

I meant, instead, to shock Israelis and friends of Israel into seeing how badly we’re hurting the Palestinians by denying them independence: It’s so bad that it’s helping drive them to try to kill us. This is something I believe, something liberal Israelis and friends of Israel believe, and I wrote that if we were to start saying so publicly, it might force other Israelis to finally confront the reality of what we’re doing to the Palestinians, and thereby get them to see that it’s wrong and must stop.

My intention was to shock people into recognition, but I ended up shocking many of them into revulsion, and twisting what I wanted to say into something I didn’t and don’t mean at all. 

What I mean is this: The occupation does not justify Palestinian terror. It does, however, provoke it. Palestinians do not have the right to attack or kill Israelis. They, do, however, have the incentive to, and part, though not all, of that incentive is provided them by the occupation. I believe that if Israel gives the Palestinians their independence, we have enough military power to neutralize whatever leftover incentive they would have to attack us. So my purpose with regard to Palestinian terror against Israelis is not to legitimize it, God forbid, but to end it.

Again, I regret what I wrote on Sunday. I apologize to everyone who was offended by it, and I apologize to my countrymen.  The post is no longer on my blog; I’ve taken it down.

A new appreciation for Israel

It’s a little ironic – the post I wrote here a few days ago on Palestinian terrorism has gotten me branded a traitor by all sorts of right-wingers, but until the attack a week ago near Eilat, the thing I was planning to write when I got back from vacation in Sweden was how I’d gained a new appreciation of what Israel means to Diaspora Jews, and of the insecurity of Jews in Europe. After I came under this shitstorm from the Right, I thought maybe I shouldn’t write that post because people will think I’m trying to apologize, trying to prove my Jewish patriot’s credentials, but to hell with second guessing myself – I think it’s worth writing about, so here are some observations from Sweden.

We spent time with a couple of friends – one a Swedish-born Jewish woman we’d known in Israel who moved back to Stockholm, and a Jewish guy I’d known back in Los Angeles who’s lived in Sweden for the last 30 years. Both are mainstream in their Jewish identities – not religious, but proud of being Jewish; supportive of Israel, but also of compromise with the Palestinians.

The woman told me that neither she nor any Jew she knows wears a star of David in public for fear of reaction from Muslims and neo-fascists. “I’ll wear a chai because they don’t know what it is,” she said. (There are 18,000 Jews in Sweden, as many as 500,000 Muslims and some small number of neo-fascists.)

One night we were talking about Israel, and I said that when the Zionist movement began at the turn of the 20th century, the Jews needed a state of their own because of anti-Semitism, but that if there were no Israel today, nobody would need to invent it because anti-Semitism, while still around, is no longer so oppressive that Jews need to get away to their own country.

My friend from L.A. disagreed, saying that without Israel, Jewish nationalism would still arise naturally today out of a Jewish need for strength, a need that Israel has filled. “Jews with guns is a radical idea,” he said. “Israel gives Jews an image of strength. Now the anti-Semites know they can’t mess around with Jews so easy, that Jews can hit back.” Our Swedish-Israeli friend agreed.

This is not the first time I’ve heard this. An elderly South African man, also a mainstream Jew, once told me about the challenges he faced starting out as a young lawyer in the Afrikaner heartland. ”I’ve been a Jew in the Diaspora when there wasn’t an Israel, and I’ve been one when there was an Israel, and let me tell you, there’s a difference.”

Growing up around Jews in New York and L.A., I never for one moment felt insecure about being Jewish, so being in Sweden gave me a new appreciation of the importance of Israel. Interestingly, while there I read the novel The Finkler Question by Howard Jacobson, which revolves around the insecurity of Jews in London today, and I figured he had to be exagerrating. But right after I came back, the New York Times’s Roger Cohen, one of my very favorite, columnists, gave the same picture.

So actually, I’m somewhat more of a Zionist now that I was a couple of weeks ago. And I still don’t see any contradiction between being a Zionist and believing that the Palestinians have as much right to fight for their independence today as the Zionists did before 1948.








Hey Glick, that’s Begin grinning from ear to ear






In return for “peace” with Egypt Begin sold out the Israeli state.

But Begin was no ordinary Israeli or Jew. Begin was the man who led the struggle against the British Antisemites in the Mandate and who was hounded by the British Antisemites and would have been killed on the spot by the British antisemites of the Mandate.


But his action in handing over the Sinai to the enemy (shown in picture above) has come back to haunt Israel because another who claims to be Jewish (NETANYAHU) IS CARRYING OUT THE BETRAYAL EVEN FURTHER


This is the real meaning of Barak blathering about tactics and strategy. Netanyahu and Barak would not understand a strategy if it hit them up the gob! I am referring to this treacherous Jewish pair allowing Egypt to build up troops in Sinai.


We should reflect today: What happened to Begin that he set in train such a betrayal?

It is the old story, a bourgeois nationalist who becomes disorientated, and in that disorientation sells out.

Put it another way: His theoretical base to start with was not Trotskyism. Once then he was revolutionary and progressive but the lack of a theoretical revolutionary base meant that there came a point when he sold out the struggle.


This is why today Jewish politics is an absolute cauldron


Why the Jewish Israeli system is in such crisis? Answer because it was their hero, on the same level as Jabotinsky, that is Begin, who carried out the great betrayal with Sadat and Carter, a betrayal  which has come back to HAUNT Israel today




I mean every EVERY body, without any exceptions. The day when you belong to a tribe or a club is over. What I say as a non Jew and as an Irish man in this context has got the same relevance as the most Jewish of Jews, the most prayerful of Jews etc. etc.


Let us take that jewel of Jewishness, Caroline Glick


After the raid by Fascists last week on the Eilat Highway Glick wrote this paragraph


“It is to be hoped that Thursday’s sophisticated, deadly, multi-pronged, combined arms assault by as yet unidentified enemy forces along the border with Egypt will suffice to force the IDF to alter its view of Egypt”


I count this as political gibberish on a whole number of levels and I as a non Jew, Trotskyist, would drop dead rather than write the above hogwash.


For starters…As a trotskyist I am programmed not to write ever “It is to be hoped” anything


In politics hope has got nothing to do with anythjing.  You can hope all you like but it won’t change a dammed thing.


Consider this though:


1. Begin betrayed the Jews

2. Begin was the authentic Jew, the authentic Zionist, the Zionist of Zionists

3. And that betrayal is threatening Israel as never before today.



So why “is it to be hoped!!!” If Glick had made a sober assessment of the Jewish leadership since 1948 and today then the only conclusion that she would have reached was that the next betrayal by Jewish leadership was just round the corner


Nothing at all has changed since Begin. Begin relied on the US Imperialists AND on the Arab antisemites of Egypt to bring security to Jews and Israel. So he handed across the Sinai to Egypt.


What happened last week with the lives of many Jews lost was the pay off for that betrayal, a betrayal taking the form of trust in the enemy


And what was the reaction of the Jewish leaders in Israel today. The answer was totally predictable: IT WAS TO TRUST THAT ENEMY EVEN MORE.


In other words the more that Jews get kicked in the throat the more that the Jewish leaders trust the kicker.


And that is why Caroline Glick starts her paragraph with the words “It is to be hoped”!!!


It is interesting that Glick spends most of her time attacking the Israeli “Left”. Well just how dammed cosy that is! Glick knows pretty dammed well that Haaretz is left of centre in the way that the thugs of Joseph Stalin were left of centre when they went around in the Spanish Revolution and Civil War murdering all of the revolutionaries. Glick knows that. they all know that. But it suits them to label the problem as being the “left”


But Glick I got some news for you.




(In November of 1977, Egyptian President Anwar Sadat made his historical visit to Israel, igniting the peace process between Israel and Egypt. In 1978, in Camp David, Israel and Egypt signed a peace treaty – the first between Israel and any Arab state. Both Begin and Sadat were awarded the 1978 Nobel Peace Prize for their work) 


The comiong socialist revolution of the working class in England and of the working class internationally will and must  give summary justice to Cameron, Hague, and Sarkozy, as well as Obama because of what they have done in Libya.


How many Libyan lives are the SAS responsible for taking over recent months?


The Telegraph in England has stated clearly the role of the SAS, AND THAT THE SAS IS ON THE GROUND BIG TIME, just as were the paras in Derry on Bloody Sunday

As a £1 million bounty was placed on Gaddafi’s head, soldiers from 22 SAS Regiment began guiding rebel soldiers after being ordered in by David Cameron.

For the first time, defence sources have confirmed that the SAS has been in Libya for several weeks, and played a key role in coordinating the fall of Tripoli.

With the majority of the capital now in rebel hands, the SAS soldiers, who have been dressed in Arab civilian clothing and carrying the same weapons as the rebels, have been ordered to switch their focus to the search for Gaddafi, who has been on the run since his fortified headquarters was captured on Tuesday.


This gives further weight to the analysis and reports by Stephen Lendman. How many “rebels” are there in Tripoli, and how many are these foreign interlopers. The role of Cameron and Hague is almost unbelievable, and it is unbelievable that the British people have allowed this to go on in their name


Note below what else the Telegraph says. Has there ever been such a disreputable set of Governments as we have in Europe today?


Libya’s National Transitional Council (NTC) said Gaddafi was wanted “dead or alive” and promised an amnesty to any of his inner circle prepared to betray his whereabouts.

Nato still has no idea where the despot (note the use of language by the Telegraph…the despot, the dictator etc) is holed up, and on Wednesday he taunted his opponents by claiming in a television interview that he had secretly toured the streets of Tripoli without being spotted.
