The Bubble of U.S.-Israeli Dominance

As is the case whenever Israel conducts a major military campaign, the ongoing IDF assault on Gaza – which has annihilated hundreds of non-combatants, including children -- has flushed the bigots out of the brush.

One particularly notorious specimen encapsulated the message sent by Israel’s strike against Hamas in terms that should resonate among die-hard anti-Semites: “Do not f**k with the Jews.”

The neo-con warrior elite: Martin Peretz of The New Republic (left), Bill Kristol of Fox "News" and the New York Times (below, left); cultural critic Michael Medved (below, right).

That sentiment was not put into play by a neo-Nazi or someone else plagued by similar ethnic obsessions. It was Martin Peretz, editor-in-chief of The New Republic, self-appointed authority on matters of ethnic etiquette, and Al Gore’s Harvard-era academic Pygmalion, who blessed the blogosphere with that elegantly phrased insight.

What Peretz wrote could quite easily have fallen from the lips or flowed from the fingers of David Duke or someone else of his persuasion. If it had, Peretz – from whose exacting scrutiny no public figure is exempt, not even his precious Prince Albert – would probably have accused the author of trafficking in invidious stereotypes regarding “Jewish power.” But Peretz himself is obsessed with that subject, at least as it pertains to the power wielded by the Israeli government – which he apparently considers the embodiment of the Jewish collective identity.

Peretz is fixated on the preservation of the power of the Israeli State. And as left-leaning journalist Eric Alterman observed in a critical profile, the policy options preferred by Peretz “almost always [mean] more war” – not only between Israel and the Palestinians, or Israel and an insufficiently docile neighbor, but also between Washington and any of Israel’s enemies that is seen as a bit too big for the Israeli government to handle on its own. And like nearly all people of his persuasion, Peretz has been careful to limit his involvement in wars of any kind to the role of spectator.

Rush Limbaugh famously declared that feminism was invented “to allow unattractive women access to the mainstream of society.” In similar fashion it sometimes seems as if Zionism has degenerated into little more than a vicarious celebration of Israeli militarism, thereby offering flabby, pasty-faced nebbishes like Martin Peretz, Bill Kristol, and Michael Medved a way to indulge their fantasies of being shtarkers.

People of this ilk don’t live in Israel or serve in the military of any country, so they don’t have to deal directly with the bloody business of the wars they incite and applaud. From the comfortable distance of several thousand miles and two continents they grind out pseudo-tough guy rhetoric from computer keyboards, or plant their well-fed tuchises on comfortable chairs in radio or television studios and belch self-satisfied homilies about the virtue of sending other people’s children out to kill and die on behalf of a distant and thoroughly disreputable State.

A couple of years ago, venturing with some reluctance into a subject I wouldn’t address had it not been thrust upon me, I presented an outsider’s perspective on Zionism, as well as two kinds of Judaism:

Religious Judaism, as I see it, is centered in the worship of God. Its defining text was delivered at Sinai.

Cultural Judaism, by way of contrast, is based on the worship of a people. It has much less to do with Sinai than with Seinfeld.

Zionism, which draws from both of the above, is the worship of a political State.

Zionism, which began as a 19th Century secular collectivist movement, has come to define not only the Jewish view of politics and religion, but is the dominant perspective within much of Evangelical Christianity. It planted the axioms that govern any discussion of Middle Eastern affairs, either in religious or secular political circles.

Yet there is little, if any, appreciation for the lethal paradox Zionism represents to those concerned about the survival of the Jewish people: The movement summoned into existence a Jewish State supposedly to provide a refuge for the Jewish people, yet Israelis enjoy a precarious existence as citizens of what is routinely described as a tiny, perpetually imperiled Middle Eastern country.

“For 2,000 years,” observes Charles Krauthammer, “Jews found protection in dispersion – protection not for individual communities, which were routinely persecuted and massacred, but protection for the Jewish people as a whole. Decimated here, they could survive there.... Hitler put an end to that illusion. He demonstrated that modern anti-Semitism married to modern technology – railroads, disciplined bureaucracies, gas chambers that kill with industrial efficiency – could take a scattered people and `concentrate' them for annihilation.”

The “cruel historical irony” of modern Israel, Krauthammer continues, is that creation of the Jewish State “required concentration – putting all the eggs back in one basket, a tiny territory hard by the Mediterranean, eight miles wide at its waist. A tempting target for those who would finish Hitler's work.”

Israel’s demographic and geographic vulnerability are constantly invoked by those who believe that the US Government – and, therefore, the people from whom that entity plunders the necessary resources – must, as a matter of moral duty, ensure the survival of the Jewish State.

The unexamined corollary to that demand – indeed, it is all but a criminal offense to discuss such corollaries in public, at least here in the putative Land of the Free – is that Jews are uniquely imperiled by living in Israel. What this means is that Israel may actually be a net liability to the Jewish people, as well as an avoidable burden for the American public at large.

I am an agnostic regarding the claim that the State of Israel, as it presently exists, is the fulfillment of the pious desires of ancient prophets and martyrs. But I am convinced to the point of moral certainty that Israel has no legitimate claim on our tax dollars or military aid, and that Washington’s subsidy of Israel has been an unalloyed disaster for both Israel and the region.

The ongoing stream of financial and material aid to Israel has created a uniquely damaging form of moral hazard. The amount of aid grows in proportion to the perceived threat to Israel. At the same time, Washington doles out aid to the Palestinian “leadership,” generally favoring the worst and most corrupt elements within that population. Tax dollars are also used to slop the foreign aid troughs of such governments as Egypt, Jordan, Pakistan, and of course, “liberated” Iraq.

Buy-offs of this kind are justified as part of the “peace process,” but it actually creates a perverse incentive to sustain the violence, or at least the threat thereof: If peace were actually to break out, the rationale for that aid would disappear.

There is a sense in which Washington’s aid to Israel is akin to such museum-quality examples of government stupidity as FEMA’s flood insurance program, which encourages people to build homes in food plains, or the role played by government-sponsored entities such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in underwriting and securitizing bad mortgage loans. All of those programs subsidize risky behavior, and socialize the costs when that behavior leads to disaster.

Israel’s punitive military excursion into Gaza is a splendid example of the same kind of subsidized foolishness, this time in international rather than domestic affairs.

Gaza is the world’s largest prison camp; an Israeli embargo prevents the Gazans from obtaining most of the necessities of life. Once ruled by Yasser Arafat’s Fatah Party, the Gazans are now ruled by Hamas, a terrorist-dominated “independence movement” that was created with help from Israeli intelligence to be a “counterweight” to Arafat’s movement.

Intermittent rocket attacks into Israel by Hamas cadres provided the pretext for the current Israeli war on Gaza. These attacks are not “resistance” to the Israeli government’s suffocating blockade of Gaza; they are cynical, damnable terrorist assaults on Israeli citizens – carried out, ironically, by elements of a movement created and sustained by the Israeli government itself.

The Israeli government and its defenders describe the Hamas missile attacks as a violation of a cease-fire agreement and, therefore, proof that the population of Gaza is incorrigibly committed to violence. But the current Israeli campaign was planned more than six months agobefore the cease-fire even went into effect. Had Hamas not been stupid enough to fire a handful of largely useless rockets into Israel, some other provocation would have been arranged to justify the invasion of Gaza.

Just War principles do not require a strictly proportionate response to an attack. However, there is a point where punitive action taken in self-defense becomes aggression, and aggression becomes a slaughter.

In this case, the Israeli military is waging a clearly indiscriminate war against a helpless civilian population. And this is being done as part of a punitive mission that will not end, or significantly reduce, the ability of Hamas to conduct minimally damaging rocket attacks into Israel – a fact at least some supporters of the Israeli action consider proof of the IDF’s insufficient ruthlessness.

Waging war in this fashion is politically profitable for elements of both the Israeli government and the Palestinian leadership. This reflects a durable, and carefully concealed, symbiosis described by Ben Cramer in his immensely important book How Israel Lost.

One illustration of that symbiosis mentioned by Cramer is the creation by the Mossad of Hamas, which nurtured the cult of suicide bombing and has killed hundreds of Israelis since 1988. While this was supposedly done to provide a “counter-weight” to Arafat, the Israeli establishment maintained intimate ties with him, as well – even as Israelis and Palestinians were dying by the hundreds in a supposedly irrepressible conflict.

Victims of a cynical, murderous charade: The bodies of a mother and her children, killed by U.S. weapons in Israeli hands.

"The PA's slimy business intersects with Israeli business at the highest levels of Israeli political life," wrote Cramer with palpable disgust. "Things are not as they seem."

Cramer illustrated this cynical “understanding” by highlighting the relationship between Israeli-owned Dor Energy and the PLO-operated Palestinian fuel monopoly. Dor's petroleum depot was a large, conspicuous target on the border with Gaza, re-supplied at regular, predictable intervals by large, slow-moving fuel tankers. In any of the numerous Israeli military strikes on Gaza, both the depot and the trucks would make irresistible targets. Yet, owing to the deal arranged between power-brokers on both sides of the conflict, neither the depot nor any of the tankers has ever been hit.

By far the most lucrative “arrangement,” Cramer explains, is the Israeli-Palestinian conflict itself, in which outbreaks of violence are timed to serve the political interests of leaders on both sides.

Prior to his death in November 2004, Arafat’s popularity "in opinion polls [would often] teeter near nowhere--invisibility--until his rescue by Israeli action against him," Cramer points out. The same was true of Ariel Sharon: "If his polls dropped, something terrible happened--dead Jews all over the TV," and his political fortunes would rise.

Exactly the same cynical game is afoot now in the latest bloodletting in Gaza. The present conflict, remember, was being planned six months ago, and is being played for political advantage by the incumbent Israeli government.

Once it’s understood that the Israeli-Palestinian blood feud is, in some ways, a scripted exercise akin to a professional wrestling “match” -- albeit one on a much bigger scale, with real injury and death – then it’s easy to understand why peace is so elusive. Those in charge of the Israeli State, and those who aspire to run the embryonic Palestinian State, simply find the conflict too politically and materially profitable to abandon, despite the horrors it inflicts on the victims of their misrule.

“Why is there no peace?” asks Cramer. “Who wants one?”

It is impossible to see how this murderous charade could continue without the financial and material intervention of Washington. Were the U.S. to do what our Constitution and founding principles require – withdraw all subsidies and support from both sides of the conflict – the perverse incentives that propel much of this conflict would be removed.

U.S. withdrawal wouldn’t palliate ancient ethno-religious grievances, or those of a more recent vintage rooted in the dispossession of the Palestinians. But it would force the antagonists to make a more realistic accounting of the actual costs of the conflict, which might prod them to make the kind of grudging, halting, agonizingly reluctant material overtures that eventually lead to peace.

Of course, American withdrawal is going to happen anyway when the destruction of the dollar is consummated, a fact that should not be lost on those interested in Israel's survival. That nation's ability to dominate its rivals militarily is a particularly pernicious variant of an investment bubble, one that has distorted Israel's priorities and discouraged it from creating a security framework on assumptions that don't involve leveraging U.S. power on its behalf.

The bubble of U.S.-Israeli dominance in the Middle East will burst as soon as the fiat dollar's global hegemony ends.

On sale now.

Dum spiro, pugno!

Ah, good stuff, Will. To be consistent (more accurate, really), the word terrorist should apply to Israel; but all in all, you exceptionally dismantle the State and its "peace process."

Palestinians, Jews and Americans need to collectively unite against the Elite forces of evil that wish their demise.

John Polomny said...


This is one of your best efforts, especially reporting on the fuel depot that never seems to get hit. I have a couple of observations first is shame on the amerikan evangelical community domainted by the pretrib death cult that seems to declare the rapture is here everytime the the sky becomes ovecast in Tel Aviv. The complete abadonment of their Palestinian brothers in Christ which used to comprise 24% of the population of Palestine (1914 Ottoman census) and has been whittled down by emigration and persecution to less the 5% is unforgivable. Second I find it ironic that Israeli politics is dominated by Askenazi Jews whose parents or grandparents immigrated to Isreal ie.. Ehud Barak (Poland), Tzipi Livini (Poland), Benjamin Netanyahu (Lithuania). So we have a situation of non-semites killing semites? As the US economy continues to implode along with the so called dollar rally it would appear God will not be mocked much longer.

Will, I thoroughly enjoy your blog, and I have learned much from it. I respectfully disagree with your view of Religious Judaism. The author of "Productive Christians in an Age of Guilt Manipulators," David Chilton, succinctly summarized it when he wrote that the god of Orthodox Judaism is Satan. I know it sounds extreme, but Orthodox Judaism (or Reform or Conservative Judaism for that matter) is not about the Old Testament God or the Old Testament. Rather, it is about self-worship, racism and the Talmud and/or Kabbalah.

On the subject of the atrocities in Gaza, much light is shed on Israel's response by Rabbi Martin Antelman's book, "To Eliminate the Opiate, Vol 2" (Vol. 1 used to be sold by the Birch Society's AO Bookstore). On page 221 Antelman writes, concerning his support of the decision to use the atomic bomb against Hiroshima and Nagasaki, "For Jewish law equates life for life, and does not differentiate between a civilian and a soldier." It doesn't matter to the IDF if they are attacking Hamas, or a Palestinian civilian--it's all good to them.

Antenlman's first book is worth reading for information about secret societies, but one does have to suffer Antelman's ego, which is substantial--as one would expect from someone who worships himself. I haven't finished his second book yet.

Two good sources written by Trinitarian Christians about the Satanic religion of Judaism is Michael Hoffman's "Judaism Discovered" (almost exclusively about Orthodox Judaism) and Elizabeth Dilling's commentary on the Talmud, which may be found at www.come-and-hear.com/dilling/index.html. Michael Hoffman lives in Idaho, btw.

Also pertinent to the discussion of Gaza, Hoffman details starting on page 438 of his tome, the Talmud's advocacy of genocide.

It goes without saying that the culture of Judaism reflects its evil religious inspiration.

Keep up the good work.

And yes, J.R. Rothdoony is a pen name.

I generally find your blog very informative, but I disagree with most of your points here.

in random order:
1) The US funding to Israel is not to help Israel, but to control it.
As the result of its influence, the US is able to nullify arm deals worth much more than the aid itself.
Recall that Congressman Ron Paul said this during his campaign.

2) Israel is a vassal state of the US, completely controlled by the US state department.

3) The governor of the Bank of Israel is Stanley Fischer, of Citibank, IMF, World Bank, need I say more ... he is not Israeli, he was imposed on Israel.

4) The Palestinians are an artificial people, they are just Arabs. Most "Palestinians" came to Israel during the British Mandate, while the British returned Jews to Nazi Europe, they allowed free Arab immigration.
BTW, the Christians are all fleeing Bethlehem which is under Palestinian rule, but the Arab Christians in Israel are flourishing.

5) The CIA and the EU & the Israeli government fund the terrorist Palestinian Authority.
The conflict is a dialectic process to bring about a new middle east, cf. Sarkozy's plan for a Mediterranean Union.
see Lord Milner quoted in Dr. Carol Quigley's book on the Anglo-American elite, that there should not be a Jewish state but a middle-east federation.
See Dr. Dennis Cuddy's articles on newswithviews.com about how wars are used by the power elite to bring "order out of chaos."
Also see Dr. Eugene Narrett's latest article on israelendtimes.com about Gaza

6) The Zionist movement was originally started by the Gaon of Vilna & Chasidic Rabbis in the late 1700's, not by secular Jews.
Jews have always longed to return to the land of Israel & have prayed for it for 2000 years.

7) What about the Gaza disengagement, why would the Israeli gov't give up land and expel its own citizens ?
Why, because it is a puppet regime.

William N. Grigg said...

[Hebrew Characters] -- I appreciate both your kind comments and the cogent way in which you phrased your points of disagreement, to which I will respond in order.

1), 2), and 3) -- I agree that "aid" from Washington to Israel does not benefit the Israelis. I think there's merit to the idea that Israel is a vassal of Washington (which is how certain officials and deals are "imposed" on Israel) but there is likewise merit to the idea that the relationship between Anglo-American and Israeli power elites is one of mutually harmful co-dependence. To be candid, I'm still trying to figure this out, as are people much more astute than myself.

4) Not being a nationalist, I'm not sure how to address the question of the "artificiality" of the Palestinians.

Where the question of dispossessing Arab inhabitants of Palestine (however one designates them) is concerned, I don't subscribe to the idea that property rights are a function of group identity.

On the matter of Arab Christians in the PA -- how are they faring in Gaza?

5) We are heartily in agreement here.

On that point: I was mortified to learn -- during a law enforcement seminar on terrorism at the University of Illinois/Chicago (yes, the same school that boasts William Ayers on its faculty) in 1997 about the assistance given by our ATF to Yasser Arafat's secret police organs, of which he had a half-dozen or more.

6) I am aware of the fact that there is a deeply religious strain of Zionism that has little to do with the secular 19th Century movement,and I acknowledged as much in the essay. But it's of interest to me that the founding cadres of the State of Israel went out of their way to establish that country as a secular socialist regime officially hostile to religious Judaism.

7) In an earlier version of this essay I included some material about the Gaza disengagement, which is something I've written about before and will probably address again on another occasion.

In that draft I also made reference to Ben Hecht's book Perfidy, which reveals just how deeply cynical and corrupt the Israeli State has always been, and how its ruling elite -- the supposed guardian of the Jewish people -- have been willing to betray and sacrifice those people in pursuit of their own interests. Once again, that's a subject I've discussed before and will probably write about again.

Exactly. Most of the world does not know that the Ashkenazic Jews originated, not in the Middle East, but in Eastern Europe, when the king of the Khazarian tribes converted to Judaism along with his people around 800 AD. They were a red-haired, watery-eyed Turkic-Mongol race renowned for their aggressiveness, warmongering, avarice, cruelty, lying, stealing, and plundering. They were feared and hated by everyone with whom they interacted.


And now, these are the rulers of Israel. Their homeland is somehwere around Nizhny Novgorod. Palestine was never their homeland, unlike the Sephardic Jews, a cultured and gentle race like the Arabs who are their blood brothers. The Ashkenazim claiming "Israel" as their homeleand would be akin to me saying, "Hail Wakantanka" and then claiming a share in Native American casino revenues and a free home on the reservation because "I am now an Indian."

Let us do some simple yet significant arithmetic: In 1948 the Jewish population of the West Bank and the other territories which were occupied by Israel in 1967 was 2,810. Today it is 484,562 (Source: Wikipedia). That represents, let us say, 200,000 Jewish homes built on land stolen for nothing from Arabs since 1967 and sold for good money to Jewish immigrants. 200,000 houses at an average of $150,000 each represents $30,000,000,000 (30 BILLION U.S. dollars).

Once again, the whole issue of Israeli territorial expansionism is all about money. The Jewish State is a massive criminal money-making enterprise by a small mafia of immensely rich men.

Question: Why do Jews have such big noses? Answer: Air is free.

(However, let us be fair. Many of our greatest cultural achievements in America we owe to Jews. For example, the Grand Canyon. Darwinists maintain it was formed over millions of years. Creationists maintain God made it in six days. Actually, what happened was that Myron Finkelstein lost a quarter down a gopher hole in Arizona.)

Yours sincerely,
Lemuel Gulliver.

On the matter of Arab Christians in the PA -- how are they faring in Gaza?

The Palestinian Christian population of Gaza, while not absolutely zero, probably comprises less than one percent of that territory's population. Gaza Palestinians have always overwhelmingly been Sunni Muslims, which explains the particular resilience of Hamas in that part of the Palestinian territories. Most of the Palestinian Christian population (or what now remains of it) is concentrated in East Jerusalem and in scattered localities on the West Bank.

[Hebrew Character]'s point about the state of Arabs within Israel proper is generally true, although I would not go so far as to say that any Arab community within Israel is "flourishing." "Surviving" is more accurate. "Israeli Arabs" and "Palestinians" are, in fact, the same people. It's merely a question of within which national boundaries they find themselves residing. Indeed, many Palestinians have extended family members who live (and have for centuries always lived) within what is now Israel proper, and vice versa, a plight that has caused no end of despair and tragedy for many of the regions Arabs since 1948.

You make good points however you destroy your message with stupid racist statements and jokes. As the good book says "the heart of man is desperately evil and wicked - who can know it". No matter skin color, nationality or ethnicity in the heart of every man beats the desire to be a tyrant. It is only God's common grace that restrains.It is only His saving grace that redeems and makes whole.

Dear Mr. Grigg,

Please decide if your readers would like to know these facts of history which follow. It is rather long. If so, please post it. If not, I will take no offense. I hope it will at least be of interest to you.

There is always a reason for everything that happens. We just do not know it. There was a very good reason for the Holocaust, which in turn is the reason the Jews cite for their actions in Palestine. But since the Jews control the media and the educational system, the reason why the Holocaust happened is suppressed.

Catholic Christian Germany pre-1920 was a country in which Jews were welcomed, and held high positions in academia, business, government, the military, science, and the arts. It was one of the most welcoming countries in Europe for Jews, who had immigrated there in 1492 when Queen Isabella threw all the Jews out of Spain. In the 19th Century Bismarck got laws passed, the first such in Europe, which specifically forbade any discrimination against German Jews.

A very different situation obtained in Orthodox Christian Russia. The Russian aristocracy hated Jews, regarding them as vermin, and the Cossacks slaughtered them regularly, especially under the last Czar Nicholas II, a weak and easily influenced man. In 1905 his secret police produced and circulated the spurious book "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion."

The Bolshevik Revolution and its aftermath was the Jews' revenge. Czar Nicholas II, titular head of the Russian Orthodox Church, and his entire family were shot by Jews, on the orders of other Jews, and some two-thirds of all the commissars and officials in the early Soviet Union were Jews. Hence the 70-year suppression of Christianity in Russia by the Jews, the murder of tens of thousands of priests and nuns, and the turning of thousands of churches into stables and barns. Meanwhile, anti-Semitism was a capital crime in Russia.

Soon after the end of WWI, the Jews, with a vision of a Worker's State across the world, according to the vision of the Jew Karl Marx, (in which they would at last be the rulers,) began to agitate in all countries of Europe and in America for the spread of Communism. This was the era of the General Strike in Britain, labor wars in America, and the rise of trade unions everywhere, mostly under Jewish leadership, waving their holy book, Marx's "Das Kapital."

Poland was the country with the largest percentage of Jews, and the Polish Jews agitated and encouraged newly heathen Russia to invade Christian Poland in 1920.

Initially, Russia met with great success, and reached the gates of Warsaw in August 1920. All of Europe expected Poland to collapse and become Communist, but at the Battle of Warsaw in 1920 General Pilsudski pulled a hat trick and decisively defeated the Russians, who left Poland and went back home.

As a consequence of the Jews' treachery, they were driven by the hundreds of thousands out of Poland, and into Germany, where they found welcoming laws. However, the Polish Jews were not the Spanish-origin dark-haired and enormously cultured Sephardic Jews who had lived in Germany for 450 years. Racially, they were Khazars, Ashkenazic Jews from Central Russia, a vile, arrogant, thieveing, aggressive, nasty, violent, corrupt, ugly race of pale-faced, red-haired, watery-eyed Mongol-Turkic vermin. The Jews of Germany were horrified and repelled by them, and they were generally known by their German co-religionists as "Galizianer Judenschwein," or "Galician Jew-pigs."

The Poles too, hated them with a passion. It is not generally known that after WWII, when the Polish Jews who had fled to Germany tried to return to Poland, they were slaughtered in their thousands by the Catholic Poles. The last anti-Jewish pogroms in Europen history were in Poland in 1946. Today, there are far more Jews in Germany and Austria than in Poland. Imagine that.

Between 1920 and 1933 when Hitler seized power, the Khazarian Polish Jews managed to make themselves so universally despised in Germany by their vicious and vile behavior that it was an easy matter for Hitler to rouse the German people against ALL Jews.

In 1933, Samuel Untermayer, head of the World Jewish Congress, left New York for a meeting of the WJC in Amsterdam. He announced to the press that when he returned, he would make a statement to the press, of the political position of the Jews of the world.

When he returned, the press was waiting in force on the docks in New York for his statement, which was carried in banner headlines around the world the next day: "JUDEA DECLARES WAR ON GERMANY."

Remember, this was 1933. A boycott of German goods was decared in America, and all stores and shops were obliged to dump all their German goods. A woman found one pair of German socks in Macy's, and Jews picketed on Fifth Avenue, and declared a boycott of Macy's until it apologized and pledged to be more careful not to sell German goods.

This was a devastating economic blow to Germany, just emerging from the Depression and hyperinflation, caused by the ruinous war reparations imposed upon it at Versailles*. In spite of this, within four years Germany had seen an economic miracle, with full employment and a booming economy, while England and America remained mired in the Depression until WWII rescued them.

* [It is most interesting that of all the ruling heads of state in Europe in 1914, it was Kaiser Wilhelm II who pleaded and begged most vehemently for reason, and the avoidance of war. I have seen in person the very telegram Wilhelm sent to his cousin Czar Nicholas II of Russia, begging him as a dear brother to please stand down the Russian armies from the borders of Germany, or war would become inevitable. One month earlier his other cousin, King George V of England, had visited Germany on a state visit, and been received with all pomp and circumstance. Yet it was the Germans who were accused of starting World War I, and punished for it - something they did not do. It was a Serb, a Russian Orthodox assassin, backed by factions in Russia, France and Britain, who assassinated the Austrian heir apparent in Sarajevo and set the ball rolling.

Moreover, WWI would have ended in a stalemate, with a negotiated peace, and WWII and the Holocaust would never have happened, except that the Zionists wanted the British to defeat the Turks and hand Palestine, a Turkish province, over to them for a homeland. In exchange, the Jews promised to entice America into the war on the side of Britain, and the British agreed to the deal, sealing the fate of Germany.]

In spite of this treachery of the Jews towards the one country in Europe that had treated them most kindly, prior to WWII, all the Nazis wanted was to get the Jews to leave Germany. They set up farms to teach them agriculture in the hopes they would emigrate to Palestine. There is a photo on the wall of the Holocaust Museum in Washington of a trainload of happy, waving young Jews going off to the countryside to learn farming.

Once the war began, emigration of the Jews became practically impossible, and Germany was faced with millions of people who, in 1933, had decared an all-out war on Germany. What was to be done with these self-declared traitors living everywhere in the midst of the population, in an environment of total war? How many were spies for Russia, as they had been in Poland in 1920? How many were spies for America, where the World Jewish Congress was now headquartered? How many were saboteurs? How do you tell a loyal German Jew or any other European Jew from a traitor? You cannot.

As the bombs began to fall on German cities, (a policy BEGUN by Churchill, not by Hitler, who merely retaliated in kind, somewhat ineffectively - 60,000 British civilians died in German bombing in WWII, vs. some three million German civilians,) what was to be done with the Jews?

The answer was simple. Forcibly deport them from Germany. Then what? How do you feed and house and clothe these millions of people displaced to camps hundreds of miles away, with firebombs raining down on German cities, and millions of Germans being incinerated alive? (More in Hamburg, more in Dresden, more in Berlin, more in Frankfurt, more in Cologne, more in Stuttgart, than in either Hiroshima or Nagasaki.)

There was not enough food for Germans. How was Germany to feed millions of Jews in the camps? A sizable percentage of the (alleged) six million simply starved to death, or died of disease, in conditions of atrocious overcrowding. And hundreds of thousands or millions of others were, I personally am convinced, murdered, to make room for new arrivals in the limited space available for them.

And there you have it. The Jews brought the Holocaust upon themselves by their behavior, mainly the behavior of the Khazarian Ashkenazim who poured into Germany from Poland, following their abortive attempt to enslave the Christan Poles, as they had enslaved the Christian Russians.

It is not generally known that the American Occupation authorities after WWII in Germany found the liberated Khazarian Ashkenazim Jews to be so noxious, so criminally inclined, so violent, and such a disruption to law and order that they rounded them up by the thousands and imprisoned them in the Nazi concentration camp KL-Neuengamme, located in Hamburg, prior to forcibly deporting them from Hamburg on ships headed for Palestine. This is absolutely true: Americans sent Jews BACK to the concentration camp - AFTER having won the war. The actions of war-ravaged Germany in 1942 and 1943, in light of that action by the conquerors, no longer appear so extreme, do they now? Once in Palestine, of course, the Khazars took control, and now rule that shitty little country.

Another interesting tale is that of the SS Patria, a ship illegally carrying 257 Jewish refugees from Germany to Palestine in November 1940, memorialized in the movie "Exodus." It was intercepted by the British outside Haifa, taken into custody, and then sent back out to sea. It blew up in the Mediterranean on November 25, 1940, killing every soul on board, and the Jews hailed it as a mass suicide of brave Jews refusing to be sent back to Germany. It was not. Ten years later there was a ceremony to remember the heroes of the Patria, at which it was revealed the ship was blown up by the Irgun, the Jewish terror organization, after which Hamas is modeled. The intent was to blow the ship up in port in Haifa, so that the British would be forced to let the passengers disembark, but unfortunately, the British sent the ship away too soon, and it blew up at sea, killing all on board. The head of the Irgun and planner of the operation was Menachem Begin, later elected Prime Minister of Israel. No doubt, the Israeli Jews who elected him to office were not aware they were electing a mass murderer, with the blood of hundreds of Jews on his hands.

That was not Begin's only atrocity. The Irgun also blew up the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, killing 86 people, among them 14 Jews. A horrifying chronicle of Jewish terrorism in Palestine in 1937-1948 and its thousands of hapless civilian victims may be found here:


Notable examples:

April 9, 1948: A combined force of Irgun Zvai Leumi and the Stern Gang, supported by the Palmach forces, captured the Arab village of Deir Yassin and killed more than 200 unarmed civilians, including countless women and children. Older men and young women were captured and paraded in chains in the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem; 20 of the hostages were then shot in the quarry of Gevaat Shaul.

The FIRST act of air piracy in the history of civil aviation was carried out by Israel, in December 1954, when a civilian Syrian airliner was forced down in Tel Aviv and its passengers and crew held for days, despite international condemnation.

The FIRST deliberate shooting down a civilian airliner was carried out by Israel, when a Libyan airliner was shot down by Israeli jet fighters over Sinai, in February 1973, on the direct orders of Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir, killing all 107 of its passengers and the entire French crew.

The 15 million or so Jews of the world are storing up for themselves a vast fund of hatred among the world's 1.5 billion Muslims, not to mention the world's 2 billion Christians. Are they REALLY so arrogant as to believe that for the next 1,000 years the Jews will be able to continue their persecution, domination, exploitation, murder, corruption and bloodsucking of the entire rest of the human race, from the "safety" of their tiny country, which is no bigger than New Jersey?

I think the answer is obvious. The Jewish mantra, "Never Again," is a vain hope. As surely as the sun rises, there will be another Jewish Holocaust, perhaps worse than the last.

Regretfully yours,
Lemuel Gulliver.

Good essay Will on a very tough subject. It amazes me from my travels through various internet forums how many people who consider themselves good Christians and are likely, for the most part, very good people are exultant over the massacre of men, women and children in Gaza.

A few responses to Gulliver's comments, but first a question to Mr. Grigg.

The power elite want to bring down the US -- that's why they sent US industry to China -- so why do you call it a "bubble of US dominance" ?

I would call it "planned war of attrition to bring about world government in the middle east" similar to the war in Iraq.

1) Ashkenazi Jews are not descended from the Khazars. They came to Eastern Europe from Western Europe after the crusades, persecution and expulsions.
That is why they spoke Yiddish, a germanic language.

2) The Bolshevik revolution was funded by Rockefeller and J. P. Morgan, see Anthony Sutton's book, "Wall St. and the Bolshevik Revolution."
There were non-Jews and Jews involved in the revolution.
Many of the Jews participated in the revolution to throw off the yoke of the Czar, not realizing that the communist regime would be even worse.

Why did Rockefeller and Morgan support the communist revolution ?
To have the "best enemy money can buy" because you need to have an enemy for Americans to give up their rights.

3) What do you mean by "The Jews" ?
Yes, some "Jews" are owners of banks, as are protestants, and Catholics.

Note: the Rothschilds have intermarried for a hundred years and are no longer Jewish.

The Jews involved in policy such as some of the neo-cons and some in finance such as Bernanke, are "court-Jews," i.e. technocrats who serve the elite who hate Judaism, and oppose an independent sovereign Israel.

These elite, which includes Jews and non-Jews, want a conflict, which Israel is not allowed to win, to bring about a "new middle east," a soviet union of the middle east.

Their plan is to divide the world into regions which then can be merged into a world government.

Those calling for world gov't hate the settlers of Judea & Samaria and plan to expel them.

4) The Sephardi Jews are actually much more right-wing than the Ashkenazi Jews. They lived among the Arabs and are suspicious of them.

5) The Right in Israel is suspicious of this conflict, that it is a "war to elect Livni."
By the right, I do not mean Netanyahu because he is not really right-wing, but like John McCain, is part of the "controlled opposition"

Dan of Jerusalem,
Regarding point #3
"Their plan is to divide the world into regions which then can be merged into a world government."

That is precisely their plan as even announced by Zbigniew Brzezinski in unequivocal terms back in 1995 at Gorbachev's State of the World Forum, "Toward A New Civilization".

I find it interesting that both the Tanakh and the New Testament contain prophecies regarding a future world government divided into ten regions (Daniel 7:23-25, Revelation 17:12-13).

(The Khazarian "conversion" was short lived. The majority of the converts were drawn from the Khazarian aristocracy whose new "Jewish" identity lasted only a generation. Many of these Khazarian converts emigrated to Spain to find acceptance with the Sephardic Jewish community but were largely mistrusted and were not allowed to assimilate into their community. They eventually assimilated into the dominant Gentile cultures whether Muslim or Christian.)

Dear Mr. Grigg,

Regarding my statements about the Polish Jews who had fled into Germany: At this YouTube link:


you will hear the hour-long video testimony of Peter Feigl, an Austrian Jew who as a child of 10-13 during the war was hidden by Christians, and thus survived the Holocaust. (He was an only child. His parents did not survive.) From about 2.5 minutes until 3.5 minutes into the narrative, he recalls that (the third reason why) his father was not concerned about the repressive laws being passed by the Nazis was because he felt that perhaps they applied only to the "Polish Jews who had immigrated into Germany" and who, as he puts it, "refused to integrate into German society."

There you have it from the horse's mouth. Mr. Feigl does NOT call them "Galizianer Judenschwein," but if you watch his face closely you can detect, even after 50 years, a slight expression of distaste flit over his face. Some of your readers may have thought I made that up, since it is not generally talked about.

Regarding Konzentrations-Lager Neuengamme, The Wikipedia article on it states that it was liberated on 4th to 5th May 1945. The article also says, however, (Paragraph 2) that "Several original buildings of the camp continued to serve as a prison (for example Building Number 9)." Below in the article, under the header "Memorial," it states that "The KZ-Gedenkstätte Neuengamme (Neuengamme memorial site) is located at Jean-Dolidier-Weg 75 in Hamburg-Bergedorf.....In 1989 the Hamburg Senate decided that the prisons erected in 1950 and 1970 on the camp site should be relocated."

It does not mention that its continued use as a prison under the American Occupation Authority was to imprison Polish and other displaced foreign Jews prior to their deportation by ship from the Hamburg port to Israel. It also omits to mention that the 1950 construction was again under the American Occupation Authority, to expand the holding facilities for eventual resettlement of Jews to Israel.

This was not an act of cruelty by the Americans, but of necessity. The Polish Jews could not or would not assimilate into German society, and could not be sent back to Poland because it had been demonstrated that most returning Jews were being murdered by the Poles.

Sometimes one can only find tiny scraps of evidence, like these above, to support historical truth which has been suppressed or denied. This is just like the Holocaust itself, where there is very little physical evidence, (thus prompting the claims of deniers,) except for the testimonials of thousands of survivors who lost their entire extended families. One wonders how many families perished in toto, with no survivors to declare that they had lost three, or five, or a dozen relatives, who all vanished without a trace. There are also testimonials of survivors who arrived at Auschwitz rail station together with their extended families, all of whom were never seen again after that moment. The survivors went right and lived, the others went left and vanished for ever. I believe those stories. At the age of over 60 I believe I can tell real tears from fake ones, and I see many real tears on those faces, even after the passage of so many years.

Yes, deniers will point to the German Nazi movies of happy well-fed inmates in swimming pools and camp libraries, and in camp orchestras and theaters, as evidence that these were jolly holiday camps, but I think that today in 2009 we are all too aware of the effectiveness of misleading government propaganda. Those movies do not impress me.

I have nothing against Jews as Jews. Most of them are delightful people. However, there is a tenet of Judaism, that Jews are special people because of their being "chosen by G-d," which is over-emphasized by some groups to justify an attitude of superiority and arrogance, and a belief that all crimes against the rest of humanity are justified because Jews are "special" human beings.

THAT is the attitude or tenet of their faith which has brought this unfortunate race so much grief through the past 3,000 years.

I pray thst this attitude may change before tragedy happens again, to the shame of all humanity.

Yours sincerely,
Lemuel Gulliver.

Arab Palestinian Christians and Arab Palestinian Muslims lived side by side for the past 1400 years, and for anybody to say that the Arab Palestinian Christians have been persecuted recently by Muslims is absolutely another big lie, like the big lie that spoke of Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq.
--Riah Abu El-Assal, Christian Bishop of Jerusalem

This article by Mr Grigg is very informative. This demonstrates a profound knowledge of the situation.

The most ominous fact in the continuing genocide against the original inhabitants of Palestine is that the American people only get ONE SIDE. Also that the world stands by and allows this to happen should trouble any decent person.

I wonder if all those older ladies who give monies to Pat Robertson and Hagee and those types, if they saw the series of photos that I saw the other day from GETTY of a little boy with his dying mother on the streets of Gaza. She holds his hand and then in the next photo life is ebbing from her. The last photo she is dead and this boy of perhaps 8, is holding his head in tears.

Arabs are, of course, SEMITES, yet the Zionists have robbed the Arab of even his humanity, you see ONLY a Jew is a victim of "anti-semitism", truly that is a remarkable achievement by that community to dispossess a people not just LITERALLY of their land but of their very ethnicity.

God gives signs, to a people who are too consumed with materialism and with foolishness and who lose the awe of God they miss such signs.

Some may disregard what was a sign others will at least ponder it and wonder...

In 1982 Israel invaded and bombed Lebanon.
Over 20,000 civilians were killed by Israel in that invasion.
One of the "heroes", as the New York Times and the Washington Post profiled him, of that bombing over helpless civilians was Ilan Ramon a colonel in the Israeli air force. There were no antiaircraft positions, the round-the-clock bombings were unopposed in the skies. This is what makes for a HERO in the eyes of the owners of the Times and the Post.

Who paid for those planes? Who paid for and made those bombs?
Who paid for the fuel? Who pays NOW for the armaments used upon the helpless innocents of Gaza?

It is the American taxpayers. Journalist Robert Fisk in Lebanon took a piece of a missile fired by an Israeli Apache helicopter that had been shot on a RED CROSS Ambulance. The pilot had used the CROSS on the top of the vehicle as his sighting in point. The salvaged part of the missile was clearly stamped Made in USA MacDonnel-Douglas, in Alabama. When Fisk visited the designer of bomb said, "don't ask me anything about Israel, I will lose my job", interesting. LITERALLY made in the USA.

In the invasion and bombing of Lebanon in 2006 Bush expedited the supplying of CLUSTER and so-called smart bombs to Israel so they could continue their savagery on the infrastructure and civilians of Lebanon.

When there was a UN Truce and the Israelis were leaving they dropped over ONE MILLION CLUSTER BOMBS on their way out.

For what reason I ask you?

Vengeance is mine, saith the Lord.

I looked at the link http://www.khazaria.com/. I did not find: "Most of the world does not know that the Ashkenazic Jews originated, not in the Middle East, but in Eastern Europe, when the king of the Khazarian tribes converted to Judaism along with his people around 800 AD. They were a red-haired, watery-eyed Turkic-Mongol race renowned for their aggressiveness, warmongering, avarice, cruelty, lying, stealing, and plundering. They were feared and hated by everyone with whom they interacted." Where in this site can I find the information that you quoted?

On the subject of Jewish war ethics, there was an article in the Jerusalem Post from May 30/31 of 2007 that supports the views I espoused earlier (read it at www.jpost.com/servlet/Satellite?cid=1180527966693&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFull).

The comments that follow originated in a letter that former Sephardi chief rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu wrote to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert.

"According to Jewish war ethics, an entire city holds collective responsibility for the immoral behavior of individuals. In Gaza, the entire populace is responsible because they do nothing to stop the firing of Kassam rockets."

"Eliyahu's son, Shmuel Eliyahu, who is chief rabbi of Safed, said his father opposed a ground troop incursion into Gaza that would endanger IDF soldiers. Rather, he advocated carpet bombing the general area from which the Kassams were launched, regardless of the price in Palestinian life."

"If they don't stop after we kill 100, then we must kill a thousand," said Shmuel Eliyahu. "And if they do not stop after 1,000 then we must kill 10,000. If they still don't stop we must kill 100,000, even a million. Whatever it takes to make them stop."

Indeed the god of Judaism is Satan. And the state of Israel is a satanic state.

Because it needs to be said, Jews are not and never have been a distinct race. In the Old Testament they were an ethnic group in the same sense that Southerners constitute an ethnic group (ethnic group, not racial group). Even by the standards of the War for Southern Independence, Southerners were comprised of whites, blacks, American Indians and Latinos. All four racial groups were represented among those who fought the North.

The Jews from their earliest days were comprised of the children of Abraham, Egyptians, the slaves of Egyptians who were not Egyptians, and people from the races that comprised the Promise Land such as Rahab (the prostitute from Jericho and one of the ancestors of Christ) and Uriah the Hittite.

If you look at Persian Jews, Ashkenazic Jews, Sephardic Jews, and white-bread, American Jews like Alicia Silverstone or Larry David, it is obvious that we are not talking about one, homogeneous race. Jews only constitute a race when it is convenient for the ADL or some similar body to yell "Anti-Semite." The Semitic people themselves are comprised of Assryrians, Arabs, and some Jews, so the term "anti-semite" as commonly employed is grossly inaccurate.

A Jew is someone who is a product of the religion and/or culture of Judaism.

Have been listening and reading your stuff for months. As a "Bible" believer, it's hard to believe, in my elementary small mind, that this Israeli/Palestinian fight is a "planned in advance event". The quote: "I am an agnostic regarding the claim that the State of Israel, as it presently exists, is the fulfillment of the pious desires of ancient prophets and martyrs. But I am convinced to the point of moral certainty that Israel has no legitimate claim on our tax dollars or military aid, and that Washington’s subsidy of Israel has been an unalloyed disaster for both Israel and the region. How in the world do I in good conscience 'pray blessings' for Israel knowing this?

Tzi Freedman on chabad.org

I believe that we have a responsibility towards the people living in Gaza. They are an oppressed people whose right to go about living normal, healthy lives has been stolen from them by a ruthless pack of gangsters.

The true terrorists are the leaders of Syria and Iran, as well as their hired thugs in Arab lands. If not for them, the people of Gaza could have long ago been leading a peaceful, thriving existence. These brutal criminals massacre their own people willingly, for nothing more than singing at a wedding party or for daring to oppose their policies. They stockpile their weapons in mosques and schools and fire from densely populated areas.

He goes on to point out that the
2005 withdrawal from Gaza has led
to this debacle, just as many said
it would:

Truthfully, the Israeli government is also to blame. Rather than concerning itself with the welfare of the Arab population living in Gaza and the West Bank, their only concern was self-defense and world opinion. If they truly cared in a really humanitarian way about these people, they would not suffice with providing hundreds of millions of dollars of food, electricity and medicine, but would also have done all possible to stomp out the foreign-based thugs long ago--along with providing a proper, moral education for youth. If we had kept a presence in Gaza, as dangerous as that was, it would have saved over a thousand Arab lives. We are too quick to find the fast and easy solutions to peace, rather than to take the harder, longer yet proven road.

That's the end of my quotation
from Tzi Freeman

Another reporter on the Israeli
scene might be known to some
readers here. from Barry Chamish whose reporting on the Rabin assassination coverup appeared
in The New American in the 1990s:


Such a waste of lives, property and dignity, just to pave the way for the next and bigger waste of lives, property and dignity over Gaza.

Condeleeza Rice forced a ceasefire down Israel's throat, co-signed by Germany, Italy, Spain, France, Britain and the EU...the usual gang of warmongers. This, as the IDF was poised to rid the world of Hamas and bring in Fatah to rule Gaza. It's heads or tails anyway you look at it. But for this fight, Israel had the quiet, jubilant backing of Egypt, Fatah and the ruling establishment of much of the Arab world. It won't ever be this good diplomatically again.

Knowing that the government was about to betray the south of the country, and its bravest soldiers who saw comrades fall for nothing, as usual, an atrocity was launched to immediately change public opinion. In the spirit of the shadow government's slaughter of Arabs in 1994 to push along the withdrawal from Hebron, another Arab was chosen as the object of the Israeli people's instinctive pity. A Gazan surgeon who works in Israel, Dr.Izzeldin Abublaish, had his home targeted by an Israeli tank, losing three daughters, and the hideous scene was reported seconds later by the grieving, shocked doctor by cellphone to TV Channel Ten's reporter Shlomi Eldar.

And if you think this ghastly massacre wasn't planned, then you don't know the psychological warfare the Israeli government and media play with the people.

Now with Israel pulling out, Hamas will tell its people they won. And God save anyone who disagrees.The little bully Hamas will shout that Israel cheated. They played dirty. And the mean old Americans backed them up, thus, we stood up to the greatest fighters on earth. Therefore, we are the bravest of them all.

But bigmouth Hamas knows he was overpowered and he's already preparing to bring bigger kids with him next time. But first, a little body-building course is called for. And someday the pipsqueak boaster is going to grow up and he's going to be bigger than Israel. And Israel will regret not finishing him off when they had their chance. But Israel chickened out and it will eventually pay for it.

For now, Israel is going to learn that mass destruction isn't winning. That 1400 enemy bodies isn't winning. Only victory is winning.

This is in stark contrast to the war I [Chamish] fought in, the Lebanon War of 1982. Then, the government stated the war's goal was to remove the PLO from the region. To do so, at great cost, it entered Beirut and surrounded the PLO's neighborhoods. It took almost two months but the PLO were forced onto ships out of Lebanon.

To prevent loss of life, the IDF showered a targeted neighborhood with leaflets offering a choice; the PLO surrenders within 24 hours and comes out with its arms in the air, or your neighborhood will be destroyed, including, if need be, by carpet bombing. Innocents were told where to gather safely. It was up to the PLO to save the neighborhood by complying with Israel's terms. There was no room for negotiation. It was unconditional surrender or continuing war. It was a nasty strategy interspersed with utilities cutoffs and the like, but this was a war of survival and Israel won it. And if Israelis with a different agenda hadn't shoved the Oslo war accord down the country's throat a decade later, this latest bloodbath would never have occurred.

In this invasion Israel should have offered as a first condition; bring us Gilad Shalit, or more likely, his remains, to our lines within 24 hours or face our wrath. That is war with a purpose. The only purpose of the latest invasion was to prepare for the next one. And I have a fair idea when it will come.

Few bothered to notice, but in the twenty days of the Gazan operation, it only rained once, and barely. By joining Jordan and the PA with Israel's water grid in the name of peace, the Kinneret and the artesian wells which served Israel well for 60+ years, in drought and plenty, are all but used up. Come summer, the next fight will be over a glass of water.
