JEFF GATES: Zionism Unmasked, Serving the Great Deceiver


By Jeff Gates STAFF WRITER/Editor

While Zionism is clearly a nationalist ideology, that narrow framing does the term an injustice as it is so much more.

Zionism is more accurately described as a strategy for targeting thought and emotion as a means to influence behavior. Naïve Jews were its first victims when induced to identify with an enclave in the Middle East that President Harry Truman, a Christian Zionist, was induced to recognize as a “state.”

Zionism is first and foremost a mental state that manifests as a dispersed form of internalized nationalism—a Diaspora—that binds to an extremist enclave those who may never set foot there. After 1967, this “state” became the “Land of Israel” based on a more expansive area seized by Israel Defense Forces along with other occupied lands that Zionists claim a god gave them.

Zionism recruits by sustaining a shared sense of insecurity within the broader Jewish community. It progresses by marketing its perceived vulnerability and victimhood among those on whom it relies for financial, military and diplomatic support.

When, as now, policies of the Zionist state come under attack, media campaigns herald an outbreak of anti-Semitism and hatred—not for Zionism but for Jews, enhancing recruitment.

By choosing to identify their interests with those of Zionism, Jews choose to make themselves feel insecure. Zionism relies for its success not only on deception but also on self-deceit.

Many well-informed Jews opposed Israel’s founding in 1948. By 1967, Jewish-Americans were active in the civil rights movement. With the Six-Day War, that activism became problematic. How could Jews back civil rights for Blacks while Zionism denied those rights to Palestinians?

That era marked a turning point both for Zionism and legitimate Judaism as many Jews abandoned civil rights activism when they could no longer reconcile their activism with Israeli oppression. Thus the present mental state of Barack Obama’s many Jewish Zionist advisers.

The Six-Day War induced more Jews to identify with Zionism as a defender of Jews. Yet now we know that war was a long-planned land grab destined to outrage Arabs and Muslims. When combined with a murderous occupation, decades of Israeli provocations were guaranteed to evoke the violent reactions required to rationalize a “war on terrorism.”

In terms of game theory war planning, today’s results were perfectly predictable—mathematically model-able within an acceptable range of probabilities. Once again Zionism targeted thought and emotion to manipulate behavior by provoking antagonism and evoking extremism—the two key ingredients required to plausibly proclaim their insecurity.

When your numbers are few and your ambitions vast, what choice did Zionists have but to seduce and deceive a super power so that our military would wage their wars for Greater Israel?

Peace is the Opponent

Peace is a perilous ‘state’ to be avoided at any cost by a nationalist ideology that thrives on serial crises wed to a perpetual state of conflict and fear. To realize the Zionist goal of hegemony over the Middle East requires a series of plausible Evil Doers and a persuasive narrative. Could Zionism be the reason we segued so seamlessly from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism? See: How Israel Wages War on the U.S.

Instead of the anticipated post-Cold War “peace dividend, the U.S. finds itself waging what Nobel economist Joe Stiglitz calls The $3 Trillion War—all of it borrowed, including $700 billion in interest expense.

In hindsight, the phony intelligence that induced us to war in the Middle East was traceable to Israelis, pro-Israelis or assets developed for that purpose such as Iraqi liar Ahmad Chalabi.

Other than those sharing a Zionist mental state, who had the means, motive, opportunity and, importantly, the stable nation-state intelligence to conduct such operations inside the U.S.?

Yet even now those responsible elude accountability and even scrutiny as cries of “anti-Semitism” are deployed to intimidate and misdirect—by manipulating thought and emotion.

At the end of World War II, the U.S. claimed 50% of the world’s productive power, ensuring we would have the world’s top-rated government bonds for at least two generations. When the Cold War drew to a costly close in 1989, the U.S. had spent $15.9 trillion on defense since 1948 (in 2010 dollars). Now a potential war without end has taken its place.

Americans have been induced to believe that the Zionist state is an ally. We are not alone in viewing Israel as a legitimate nation and a noble experiment to provide a “homeland” for a victimized people. That alluring storyline victimized the broader Jewish community while also laying waste to the nation that was first deceived to extend to Zionists the hand of friendship.

To escape the ravages of Zionism requires that we concede its duplicitous nature and make its operations transparent so that its perpetrators become apparent. As a long-deceived global public grasps its costs in blood and treasure, this mental state will be seen for what it is: a criminal state.

The Psychopath Within

In the clinical psychiatric literature, this “state” features interpersonal traits such as superficial charm, pathological lying, egocentricity, lack of remorse, and callousness that are regarded as characteristic of psychopaths. In order to betray, psychopaths first befriend. In order to defraud, they first establish a relationship of trust. Sound familiar?

Those who share such a mental state will happily incite hatred to catalyze a reaction and then claim they are the victims of hate. For those inhabiting this mental state, it appears rational and even desirable to provoke a response and then claim to be a target of anti-Semites. Inside this internal state, self-absorption is all-encompassing with arrogance its most visible trait.

Law is irrelevant to those who consider themselves above the law. Morality and conscience are of no concern to those who consider themselves The Chosen—by a god of their own choosing. Such a nationalist ideology has no place in a system nation states dedicated to the rule of law.

Those sharing such a “state” pose too great a peril to be an object of pity or compassion. Accountability is the only appropriate response along with an initiative—deploying force as required—to secure any weapons of mass destruction that may be in their possession.

Such a state cannot be delegitimized because any legitimacy attained was integral to the fraud it inflicted on the community of nations. The issue at hand is how best to protect a peace-seeking world from a psychopathic ideology that assumed the appearance of legitimacy so that a Christian Zionist president could be deceived to recognize as a nation a criminal state.

    Jeff…I just made a donation to the Zionist Organization of America in your honor.

    In the years since WW 2 Americans have been bombarded with Jewish suffering in death camps ran by Nazi’s. Every week on television stories of Jewish suffering was the story line of a new book.

    Zionists use this victim story to their advantage. Many information gathering naive Americans ignorant of their own European history and mobilized by their fundamentalist Christian bible verse belching preachers vomiting stories of the end of the world.

    Now what are we hearing? We are now hearing the end of the earth according to the Maya Indian is close at hand. I am waiting to see how television and newly written best seller books ties this end of times into fundamentalist Christian end of times belief.

    This is what I like to shoutout from a rooftop: “Zionism is the enemy of humanity. Zionist Israel is the only enemy of America and the rest of the world. The enemy of America is not Russia, China or the Arab world. America stop your attacks on Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yamen and stay away from Iran and Russia and other countries. If there is any place that deserves to be attacked it is Israel. Go and attack Israel if you want to get even with the enemy and if you want peace in the world but get the real Jews to leave Israel before the attack. Annihilate only the Zionist criminals who are a curse to the world. Read books by Alan Hart. See the DVD by the Jewish woman Anna Boltzer for her eye witness account on Israeli crimes on the Palestinians.

      Ya know what- read the Talmud. “Zionism” IS Judaism. The Christ called Jews the Children of the Devil. Nothing has changed in 2000 years.

    Jeff Gates thank you once again for writing an extremely insightful and truthful article. I am honored to have come across someone like you, for most people in North America and Western Europe have been so deceived and manipulated that they simply do not see the truth and some of them refuse to accept the truth and there are others who have chosen to defend the criminal Zionists for personal gain. Tom Barnes shame on you for pandering to the criminal Zionists.

    Our soldiers suffer because of people like you in the military who refuse to understand the truth and act on its behalf. Do you see the state of military, our country and that of the world today? Who has looted our banks? Who has destroyed our culture? Who has corrupted our legal system, politicians, our universities and schools? You are such an ignorant man who has no idea about the destruction the Zionists and their allies have caused and when someone like Jeff Gates try to educate the public about the truth you try to shut him up by calling him names. I am happy there are Jeff Gates and I will be happy when there will be no more like you Tom Barnes. Are you a relative of Fred Barnes the stooge of Zionist Bill Krystol who panders to Zionists? Our soldiers are dying from exposure to depleted Uranium and America has waged illegal wars to benefit Israel and what is your take on these things? I am one who is very much aware of Zionist crimes and that is why I am irritated with your comments. Do you have an opinion about Israel’s greed for money, power and control and its greed for oil and minerals in the land owned by Arabs and total disregard for the lives of other people? How about what they have done to Palestines? I see you are retired which should give you plenty of time to educate yourself. I recommend that you read books by Jeff Gates, Michael Collins Piper, Victor Thorn, Mark Glenn, Texe Marrs, Edward Griffin, Webster Tarpley, Dr Ron Paul, Eustace Mullins and other similar authors who have chosen to write the truth and speak the truth unlike people like you—who are the problem we have because it is people like you that have enabled the Zionists to perpetrate their crimes on humanity. Shame on you and them! By the way what do you think and feel about Israeli bombing of the USS Liberty in 1967 killing 34 and injuring 171 sailors? Tom Barnes open your eyes and ears and wake up to the truth. America is on the edge of a cliff, taken there by Zionists and their allies like you.

    “Zionism is more accurately described as a strategy for targeting thought and emotion as a means to influence behavior.”

    Doesn’t this describe APA brand drug psychiatry, the only approved “treatment” for traumatized veterans, just as accurately? See

    TV buffs, what did Tony Soprano’s mother say when he told her he was seeing a psychiatrist?

  6. Mick  February 11, 2010 at 6:59 pm

    Is anti-humanism a problem for anyone? Some Americans are too brain washed to see the obvious and there is no sense wasting time with them.

  7. Military Family  February 11, 2010 at 11:53 am

    Where are the documents on the 6-million. I have heard this numnber repeated so many times, it sounds like “please leave a message, after the tone” on a cell phone. Google: 1933 Jewish Boycott on Germany and read carefully, Could it be that history books could have just been written by people with special interests? After all, Europe (aka Catholic Church) did used to teach doctrine that the Earth was flat. Why is America responsible for Germany, France and other countries – especially Israel?

    • Tom Barnes  February 11, 2010 at 1:42 pm

      Let me get this straight. You are denying the Holocaust? You deny the numbers killed that all Western nations’ governments have accepted since 1946? You have some special insight here?

      May God help you. You are on very dangerous ground here.

    • Brian  February 11, 2010 at 7:22 pm

      Read this article or watch the video interview of Dr. Franciszek Piper, Senior Curator and Head of Archives at the Auschwitz State Museum. He is interviewed by David Cole who is an atheist and both of his parents are Jewish.

      It gives new official numbers and information that was shocking to me. Information most people are not aware of. Yes, there was a holocaust. By the way, Piper is no fan of the revisionists and he is not an anti-Semite. This a very sad subject and I decided to read this interview because it was conducted by a man who has two Jewish parents and so he is not an anti-Semite.

      From the article:

      Dr. Franciszek Piper is one of the Holocaust experts most directly responsible for the lowering of the Auschwitz death count along with other scholars like Israeli Holocaust expert Dr. Yehuda Bauer.

      It was decided around 1989 to admit publicly that fewer people died at Auschwitz than had previously been reported. In his book, Auschwitz, –How Many Perished? Dr. Piper concludes that the old Soviet figure of four million is wrong and that the real figure is closer to 1.1 million.

  8. Tom Barnes  February 11, 2010 at 10:51 am

    I am having trouble Jeff separating your anti-Zionist views with out and out anti-Semitism. I try hard to give you the benefit of the doubt.

    I am sure that there are excesses in Zionist circles that cause pain for all of the world, including the USA and the Palestinians. I am also quite sure that a lot of what you say is true; that the Zionist community and its allies have incredible power over American foreign policy that is way out of alignment with the numbers involved.

    But the bottom line is this. We in the West allowed six million Jews to be slaughtered, knowingly or unknowingly, through ignorance or impotency from roughly 1939 to 1945. That happened. These people were gassed or burned like bugs.

    This is the logical end of where your argument leads:it reads like this. “These Zionist Jews are a bother. They are causing us trouble. Lets take their power away.” Than what Jeff? Where do we go from there?

    How far do we take our irritation with the “power” that Zionist Jews have accumulated over American foreign policy? What do we do about that? Do we lock them up? Do we kill them? Do we have yet another pogrom against these people?

    Do you understand Jeff that “Zionists”, no matter what their faults and your disagreements with their philosophy, are people? These are human beings. Do you get that?

    What is next in your armory of tools to dislodge Zionism from America’s thinking? What do we do Jeff to “eradicate” this “great danger to us all?”

    Israel exists as a result of a decision made by the United Nations in the late 1940s to allow a homeland for dispossessed Jews to exist in the Middle East. Whether that was a correct or incorrect decision we could argue all day and night. But the decision was made by a world body and the decision was legal. Israel now exists as a world class state and allied to the U.S. and it is quite powerful and influential, especially for its small size.

    Does Israel have undo influence on American foreign policy? The answer may very well be “yes”. Should Americans be wary of Israeli intentions relative to its influence over American foreign policy? Of course, but the same can be said for Canadian or French or Angolan or Brazilian or German influence over American foreign policy.

    We either have a foreign and domestic set of policies based on American interests or we do not. It is in the eye of the beholder whether or not “this” or “that” particular policy decision is anti or pro Israeli at any given time. My personal opinion is that the U.S. has always tried to be as even handed as possible in American foreign policy in that part of the world for several decades now. Of course there will be those that disagree with me, but that is how I see it.

    You have strong feelings that Zionists are ruining our foreign policy. I understand that. You may very well be right. I don’t think you are, but you might be.

    Now, tell me Jeff, what do we do about this besides launch another pogrom?

    Enough already Jeff with the “Israel is the demon of the world” stuff. That is all you ever say.

    Israel is a state that has foreign policy goals that are often different than ours. That is their right. Do we balk at the fact that Uraguay does not always agree with us? Do we get upset when Thailand attempts to influence our foreign policy? Do we write books about the dangers of South Africa attempting to sway our congress one way or another on any particular issue? The answer is “no”.

    That being the case, why is Israeli influence on the American Congress seen as something evil by you? ALL countries attempt to influence our Congress. They always have and as long as a world power, they always will.

    Why is it so evil and so out of place that the Israelis attempt to influence on our Congress but the Thais and the Lebanese and the Canadians are not seen as such a threat when they do it?

    Enough already Jeff. You have made your point. I tire of it.

      Tom Jeff’s work is based on my life’s work and everything Jeff Gates has written is based on ‘provable’ facts. I was asked point blank by Dr. Glenn A. Olds in 1998 two questions. Dr. Olds for those not aware of who he was served four presidents. Two democrats and two republicans and was the man whose policy on Vietnam Henry Kissinger got the Nobel Prize. He also was asked by Bill Clinton to reorganize his Cabinet after he disastrous first two years in office and declined citing Clinton would be facing scandals on par with Watergate. Glenn Olds got Richard Nixon elected and took over at Kent State after our Tianamen Square.

      Dr. Olds asked, “Mel based on your work do you believe Bill Clinton is perpetrating treason with the majority of pro Israelis he has appointed to his Cabinet and Administration and did the Jewish Elite have a hand in the Holocaust?” I answered the second question with a question. “Would Harry Truman have been able to override the objections of George Marshall recognizing the State of Israel without the Holocaust?” And as it related to Bill Clinton that was easy. I told him the man could never have committed treason. He has been betraying a brilliant self every day he puts his pants on since he was a very young man.

      Unless you can factually cite errors in any of Jeff’s work I suggest your problem is you can’t deal with the facts. And the fact is the State of Israel is in fact our enemy not our special friend. The Filth and I am being kind came after me at age “6” to get to my father, murdered 8 people close to me and with the help of local, state and federal authorities have stalked me in plain sight with impunity. If I had been functionally engaged in 1998 by the FBI in Minneapolis we would have stopped 911. If I had been interviewed by Special Agent Butler – Agent for the FBI who paid the rent for the two hijackers identified by General Hayden in his DCI hearings as the ones who flew the planes into the WTC we would not have invaded Iraq. Jeff has posted articles on the subject you were silent on – but now you challenge his facts calling him anti-Semitc? Without the ability to factually refute anything Jeff has written are you ANTI AMERICAN because your ignorance of the facts, attacking Jeff’s work in defense of our nations real national security interests – you sir are a TRAITOR to a self in need of reflection and a TRAITOR to our NATION because anyone defending Israel or Zionism are defending the enemy within.

      Wish to discuss ask Gordon for my phone number. Happy to discuss.

      Best personal regards

    • Jeff Gates  February 11, 2010 at 5:22 pm

      Tom – if you’ve not yet read Guilt By Association, I suggest you do so. That way, you can see HOW the same tools that the Israelis use to deceive the U.S. in plain sight are evident in your fact-less critique, including the routine use of “correspondence” — Uruguay can lobby us, therefore what’s wrong with Israel?

      Are you so totally clueless as to the clout the Israel lobby exerts? In practical effect, the lobby repealed representative government. Please read the introduction posted on the Criminal State website for an analysis of HOW representative government was, in practical effect, repealed in plain sight with the help of the “reform” promoted by John McCain and Russ Feingold. Do an online search for my name and “How Israel Lobby Controls US.” McCain is a product of organized crime, period, full stop. Deal with it.

      I realize how uncomfortable these facts are. Yet they remain facts. The fact is there was a Holocaust. Does that fact justify Israel and its supporters fabricating intelligence to take this nation to war in pursuit of its expansionist agenda and what the Joint Chiefs cautioned in 1948 that these fanatics (the Pentagon’s assessment) seek — i.e., hegemony over the entire Middle East. Do the math. What has this entangled alliance cost us in blood, treasure and credibility. Do a “but for” computation from 1948. If you come up with a dolalr cost less than in the trillions, let me know.

      People don’t know HOW this duplicity proceeds in plain sight. Nor have they yet grasped that, in order for organized crime to operate on a genuinely global scale, its operatives required the appearance of a “state” in order to succeed.

      That evidentiary trail is made transparent on the Criminal State website and in this first release in the Criminal State series of books in which Mel Rockefeller is identified only as “John Doe” for strategic reasons that should now be apparent if you’ve read the analyses so that you are familiar with the FACTS versus what you may believe to be true. Or what you may NEED to believe is true in order to sustain your hold on a reality that is not supported by the facts.

      The fact is we must confront an enemy within. That enemy is not only Israel and its supporters (again, read the introduction), that enemy within is also within each of us to the extent that we defer to what we believe versus what the facts confirm. Thus the title of Guilt By Association includes both deception and self-deceit. As you ponder the real facts, my hope and anticipation is that you will conquer both.

      The relevant battlefield is the shared field of consciousness. That’s where those profiled focus their considerable talents to target thought and emotion to manipulate behavior, including policy-making. Anyone working downstream of such psy-ops is fighting a losing battle. Read the piece on how Colin Powell’s credibility (a field-based “property”) was deployed to associate fixed intelligence with his perceived integrity. That op-ed is titled “How Israel Wages War on the US.” Deal with it.

      Defense Secretary Gates hit the nail on the head. The most troublesome combatants are “the people in between” — i.e., between a targeted populace and the facts they require for a system of governance based on informed choice. Thus the pivotal role of false beliefs — as with Iraq WMD, ties to Al Qaeda, yellowcake, meetings in Prague, mobile biological weapons labs and so forth. All of these baseless beliefs trace to a common source: Israel, pro-Israelis and assets developed by them. Why are you not concerned by that form of treason?

      Frankly I am shocked that you would weigh in with such a critique after my posting of so many commentaries, including one chronicling Mel’s firsthand experience profiling this transnational syndicate from the inside for multiple decades. If you have any FACTS in support your stance, let’s hear them. All I see in your critique is generalities, lots of correspondence theory and baseless beliefs.

      I realize that this requires people to jettison much of what they were led to believe – dating back even to the alluring stories we picked up in Sunday school or at the cinema. Thus the recent account on the making of Exodus, a public relations campaign. Search for American Intifada. As with the Palestinians, we need to “shake off” this deeply imbedded form of systemic treason. And we need to quickly secure a nuclear arsenal now in the hands of religious extremists who, as the facts confirm, share a common mental state: psychopathy.

      How do we solve this? With facts, accountability (under the rule of law) and better design. The first challenge is to ensure that people who should know better can deal with the facts rather than default to what they have been induced and deceived to believe.

    Read this shocker:

    In 2003 while lobbying leaders to put together the Coalition of the Willing, President Bush spoke to France’s President Jacques Chirac. Bush wove a story about how the Biblical creatures Gog and Magog were at work in the Middle East and how they must be defeated.

    In Genesis and Ezekiel Gog and Magog are forces of the Apocalypse who are prophesied to come out of the north and destroy Israel unless stopped. The Book of Revelation took up the Old Testament prophesy:

    “And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle … and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.”

    Bush believed the time had now come for that battle, telling Chirac:

    “This confrontation is willed by God, who wants to use this conflict to erase his people’s enemies before a New Age begins”.

    The story of the conversation emerged only because the Elysée Palace, baffled by Bush’s words, sought advice from Thomas Römer, a professor of theology at the University of Lausanne. Four years later, Römer gave an account in the September 2007 issue of the university’s review, Allez savoir. The article apparently went unnoticed, although it was referred to in a French newspaper.

    The story has now been confirmed by Chirac himself in a new book, published in France in March, by journalist Jean Claude Maurice. Chirac is said to have been stupefied and disturbed by Bush’s invocation of Biblical prophesy to justify the war in Iraq and “wondered how someone could be so superficial and fanatical in their beliefs”.

    Wow…your perception and presentation of history is so unbelievably skewed it’s painful to read. The right of Jews to Israel was established in international law in 1920 and 1924 (see San Remo Conference).
    And then start learning to think for yourself, rather than repeating these canards.

    • Jeff Gates  February 11, 2010 at 5:16 am

      Suggest you brush up on your history. Here’s a just-published account in a 4-part series on this thuggery (aka Zionism):

      Urge that you read Guilt By Association, the first release in the Criminal State series for a half-century documentation of how this trans-generational criminal syndicate (aka Israel) operates in plain sight to displace facts with what “the mark” can be deceived to believe. Numerous jews writing with thanks for distinguishing these psychopaths from the broader community who are too often portrayed as…guilty by association. Suggest you review the analyses on the Criminal State website for factual accounts of how Israel wages war by way of deception — on the U.S.

  11. Dov Friedman  February 11, 2010 at 3:58 am

    “DEFAMATION” – a documentary

    I HIGHLY recommend this new 1.5 hour documentary by Israeli director, Yoav Shamir.


    Shamir “…embarks on a provocative – and at times irreverent – quest to answer the question, “What is anti-Semitism today?” Does it remain a dangerous and immediate threat? Or is it a scare tactic used by right-wing Zionists to discredit their critics? Speaking with an array of people from across the political spectrum (including the head of the Anti-Defamation League and its fiercest critic, author Norman Finkelstein) and traveling to places like Auschwitz (alongside Israeli school kids) and Brooklyn (to explore reports of violence against Jews), Shamir discovers the realities of anti-Semitism today. His findings are shocking, enlightening and – surprisingly – often wryly funny.”


    NOTE: (Forget the site itself. Just watch the video. It’s really amazing and quite charming.)

    • Rolando  February 23, 2010 at 12:31 pm

      Why should we forget the site? They have an amazing collection of videos! If you would bother to look around their site you will see that they just uploaded the new documentary about Norman Finkelstein called “American Radical” – a good sequel to Defamation:
