Gentle reader, do you know that Israel is engaged
in ethnic cleansing in southern Lebanon? Israel has ordered all the villagers
to clear out. Israel then destroys their homes and murders the fleeing villagers.
That way there is no one to come back and nothing to which to return, making
it easier for Israel to grab the territory, just as Israel has been stealing
Palestine from the Palestinians.
Do you know that one-third of the Lebanese civilians murdered by Israel's attacks
on civilian residential districts are
children? That is the report from Jan Egeland, the emergency relief coordinator
for the UN. He says it is impossible for help to reach the wounded and those
buried in rubble, because Israeli air strikes have blown up all the bridges
and roads. Considering how often (almost always) Israel misses Hezbollah targets
and hits civilian ones, one might think that Israeli fire is being guided by
US satellites and US military GPS. Don't be surprised at US complicity. Why
would the puppet be any less evil than the puppet master?
Of course, you don't know these things, because the US print and TV media do
not report them.
Because Bush is so proud of himself, you do know that he has blocked every
effort to stop the Israeli slaughter of Lebanese civilians. Bush has told the
UN "NO." Bush has told the European Union "NO." Bush has
told the pro-American Lebanese prime minister "NO." Twice. Bush is
very proud of his firmness. He is enjoying Israel's rampage and wishes he could
do the same thing in Iraq.
Does it make you a Proud American that "your" president gave Israel
the green light to drop bombs on convoys of villagers fleeing from Israeli shelling,
on residential neighborhoods in the capital of Beirut and throughout Lebanon,
on hospitals, on power plants, on food production and storage, on ports, on
civilian airports, on bridges, on roads, on every piece of infrastructure on
which civilized life depends? Are you a Proud American? Or are you an Israeli
On July 20, "your" House of Representatives voted 410-8 in favor
of Israel's massive war crimes in Lebanon. Not content with making every American
complicit in war crimes, "your" House of Representatives, according
to the Associated Press, also "condemns enemies of the Jewish state."
Who are the "enemies of the Jewish state"?
They are the Palestinians whose land has been stolen by the Jewish state, whose
homes and olive groves have been destroyed by the Jewish state, whose children
have been shot down in the streets by the Jewish state, whose women have been
abused by the Jewish state. They are Palestinians who have been walled off into
ghettos, who cannot reach their farm lands or medical care or schools, who cannot
drive on roads through Palestine that have been constructed for Israelis only.
They are Palestinians whose ancient towns have been invaded by militant Zionist
"settlers" under the protection of the Israeli army who beat and persecute
the Palestinians and drive them out of their towns. They are Palestinians who
cannot allow their children outside their homes because they will be murdered
by Israeli "settlers."
The Palestinians who confront Israeli evil are called "terrorists."
When Bush forced free elections on Palestine, the people voted for Hamas. Hamas
is the organization that has stood up to Israel. This means, of course, that
Hamas is evil, anti-Semitic, un-American and terrorist. The US and Israel responded
by cutting off all funds to the new government. Democracy is permitted only
if it produces the results Bush and Israel want.
Israelis never practice terror. Only those who are in Israel's way are terrorists.
Another enemy of the Jewish state is Hezbollah. Hezbollah is a militia of Shi'ite
Muslims created in 1982 when Israel first invaded Lebanon. During this invasion
the great moral Jewish state arranged for the murder
of refugees in refugee camps. The result of Israel's atrocities was Hezbollah,
which fought the Israeli Army, defeated it, and drove it out of Lebanon. Today
Hezbollah not only defends southern Lebanon but also provides social services
such as orphanages and medical care.
To cut to the chase, the enemies of the Jewish state are any Muslim country
not ruled by an American puppet friendly to Israel. Egypt,
Arabia, and the oil emirates have sided with Israel against their own kind,
because they are dependent either on American money or on American protection
from their own people. Sooner or later these totally corrupt governments that
do not represent the people they rule will be overthrown. It is only a matter
Indeed Bush and Israel may be hastening the process in their frantic effort
to overthrow the governments of Syria and Iran. Both governments have more popular
support than Bush has, but the White House Moron doesn't know this. The Moron
thinks Syria and Iran will be "cakewalks" like Iraq, where ten proud
divisions of the US military are tied down by a few lightly armed insurgents.
If you are still a Proud American, consider that your pride is doing nothing
good for Israel or for America.
On July 20 when "your" House of Representatives, following "your"
US Senate, passed the
resolution in support of Israel's war crimes, the most powerful lobby in
Washington, the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), quickly got
out a press release proclaiming "The American people overwhelming support
Israel's war on terrorism and understand that we must stand by our closest ally
in this time of crisis."
The truth is that Israel created the crisis by invading a country with a pro-American
government. The truth is that the American people do not support Israel's war
crimes, as the CNN quick poll results make clear and as was made clear by callers
Despite the Israeli spin on news provided by US "reporting," a majority
of Americans do not approve of Israeli atrocities against Lebanese civilians.
Hezbollah is located in southern Lebanon. If Israel is targeting Hezbollah,
why are Israeli bombs falling on northern Lebanon? Why are they falling on Beirut?
Why are they falling on civilian airports? On schools and hospitals?
Now we arrive at the main point. When the US Senate and House of Representatives
pass resolutions in support of Israeli war crimes and condemn those who resist
Israeli aggression, the Senate and House confirm Osama bin Laden's propaganda
that America stands with Israel against the Arab and Muslim world.
Indeed, Israel, which has one of the world's largest per capita incomes, is
the largest recipient of US foreign aid. Many believe that much of this "aid"
comes back to AIPAC, which uses it to elect "our" representatives
This perception is no favor to Israel, whose population is declining, as the
smart ones have seen the writing on the wall and have been leaving. Israel is
surrounded by hundreds of millions of Muslims who are being turned into enemies
of Israel by Israel's actions and inhumane policies.
The hope in the Muslim world has always been that the United States would intervene
in behalf of compromise and make Israel realize that Israel cannot steal Palestine
and turn every Palestinian into a refugee.
This has been the hope of the Arab world. This is the reason our puppets have
not been overthrown. This hope is the reason America still had some prestige
in the Arab world.
The House of Representatives resolution, bought and paid for by AIPAC money,
is the final nail in the coffin of American prestige in the Middle East. It
shows that America is, indeed, Israel's puppet, just as Osama bin Laden says,
and as a majority of Muslims believe.
With hope and diplomacy dead, henceforth America and Israel have only tooth
and claw. The vaunted Israeli army could not defeat a rag tag militia in southern
Lebanon. The vaunted US military cannot defeat a rag tag, lightly armed insurgency
drawn from a minority of the population in Iraq, insurgents, moreover, who are
mainly engaged in civil war against the Shi'ite majority.
What will the US and its puppet master do? Both are too full of hubris and
paranoia to admit their terrible mistakes. Israel and the US will either destroy
from the air the civilian infrastructure of Lebanon, Palestine, Syria, and Iran
so that civilized life becomes impossible for Muslims, or the US and Israel
will use nuclear weapons to intimidate Muslims into acquiescence to Israel's
Muslim genocide in one form or another is the professed goal of the neoconservatives
who have total control over the Bush administration. Neocon godfather Norman
Podhoretz has called for World War IV (in neocon thinking WW III was the Cold
War) to overthrow Islam in the Middle East, deracinate the Islamic religion
and turn it into a formalized, secular ritual.
Rumsfeld's neocon Pentagon has drafted new US war doctrine that permits pre-emptive
nuclear attack on non-nuclear states.
Neocon David Horowitz says that by slaughtering Palestinian and Lebanese civilians,
"Israel is doing the work of the rest of the civilized world," thus
equating war criminals with civilized men.
Neocon Larry Kudlow says that "Israel
is doing the Lord's work" by murdering Lebanese, a claim that should
give pause to Israel's Christian evangelical supporters. Where does the Lord
Jesus say, "go forth and murder your neighbors so that you may steal their
The complicity of the American public in these heinous crimes will damn America
for all time in history.
