Jews in America are being played, some at least.  Frankly, I don’t know one Jew that buys in on any of the extremist idiocy that has driven Israel to acting so terribly.  Maybe only half my friends and co-workers are Jews.  I am in that kind of world.  Jews, people with Jewish families, make up, not only friends but half my own family.  Fights go on continually about holidays and mostly food.  There simply aren’t any discussions about Israel.  What has happened there and what has happened here, in the US, were never meant to happen.  None of us, for years, had an accurate history.  Now we can believe almost nothing at all. 

We weren’t around in 1947, not most of us anyway.  We were never told how things went and what was done against the Palestinians, not an honest version.  It was easy to see how the Muslim/Arabs had created governments that would eventually turn the entire region over to the Communists, out of their greed and stupidity.  Frankly, about a third of the Jews that went to Palestine initially were Communists also.  This was a time of political upheaval around the world with everyone fighting for a place at the table.  It left us with a world we are still paying for now.  Mistakes were made but adding to them is inexcusable.  We should all have learned that buy now.

The history of that time, mostly from the movie Exodus, is a total lie.  I get mine straight from Irgun guys.  They tell a very different story, a true story.  Unless you talk to one of them, one who will be honest with you, consider everything you know to be propaganda.  The truth isn’t simple.  The good aren’t always good and the bad are seldom that different from the good.  Facing this truth is inconvenient for a generation raised on propaganda and myth.  There is dishonor in choosing to believe lies.

The offical version of the 1947-48 war is a farce.  You can also say the same about the 6 Day war and the Suez Crisis.  This is the root of all terrorism and world conflict.  Problem is, Israel is now a massive arms producer and exporter.  I was just in Pakistan.  You don’t think I was approached by Israel to sell them weapons while I was there?  Business has its own ethics, none at all.  Israeli equipment is all over the Middle East, from Iran to Jordan to Iraq to Egypt.  We buy it, they buy it.  This idiocy about Israel and security is simply that.  Israel has very cordial relations with Egypt, Jordan, Iraq and the Gulf States. It has some issues with Syria, a country whose military is decades behind Israel.

Israel has “not so public” relationships with the Saudis, Yemen and Iran.  Frankly, there are no longer any significant enemies for Israel to arm against.  They don’t exist.  Israel now has such advanced weapons that the crazy elements in Israel are now threatening western Europe with nuclear attack.  No, it has gone that far, all extremism is the same, Zionist, Islamic or Christian.  Dumb is dumb. Check this out:

Noted Israeli military historian Martin van Creveld stated that Israel could find itself one day forced to exterminate the European continent using all kinds of weapons including its nuclear arsenal if it felt its demise neared, stressing that Israel also considers Europe a hostile target.

This came in a press interview broadcast by the seventh Hebrew radio and was translated on Wednesday into Arabic by the press information analysis and study center.

“We have hundreds of nuclear warheads and missiles that can reach different targets in the heart of the European continent, including beyond the borders of Rome, the Italian capital,”  Creveld said, adding that most of the European capitals would become preferred targets for the Israeli air force.

The Israeli historian reiterated Israel’s ability to destroy the whole world whenever it felt its existence would be doomed to extinction.

Creveld isn’t a dumb guy, far from it, but he is obviously playing games with people.  How many people in Israel are saying things like this?  Too many, way too many, talking not only about attacking Europe but about building hundreds of nuclear rockets with India and attacking the United States.  Israel’s nuclear missiles already can reach most of the United States with hundreds of warheads.  With those being built by India, 10 nukes per missile, range 18,500 kilometers, with many to be kept in Israeli silos, the entire United States is easily in range.

If Israel’s best know historian, Creveld is correct, then this capability being developed is to be used against the United States.  This is total insanity but everything here is public record, listed, not only with Global Security but Jane’s also.  You couldn’t even think about getting missiles of this range to hit Iran.  They couldn’t be launched for such a short range.



The only enemy Israel is talking about now is Iran.  Friends who know nuclear weapons tell me there is no reasonable proof Iran is developing weapons at all and that the news stories we see are “plants,” misrepresentations of fact just like all the Bush era terror alerts and the phony bin Laden tapes.  Those of us who remember Iran/Contra learned that there is a secret relationship between Israel and Iran where alot of money is made and business done while threats go back and forth.

Both countries are poor liars.  Iran makes noise to pretend to be “Islamic” and Israel makes noise to get more money from the US and take the focus off their ethnic cleansing.  No American, especially no American Jew should get involved.  This is a game for suckers.


Jews were blocked from full participation in American society until 30 years ago.  They may have had money and massive power, especially through control of key industries and shared control of organized crime with their Italian partners but real Jews, everyday people, were not treated well.  Real Jews are doctors, lawyers, teachers and even still drive cabs.  The gang that talks about Israel or tries to run the US government aren’t real Jews.  They are something different, but what?

First of all, nobody knows the truth.  What do you do when someone comes to you and tells you Israel is going to be destroyed, the Jewish homeland?  You give money and try to help.  How do you know that the people coming to you are liars and cheats?  When you hear, all day, every day, about how violent the Palestinians are and how they tried to wipe out the Jewish settlers, you can’t help but hate them.  Problem is, what you are told isn’t true.  Really, nothing is true.  Things are complicated and it takes intelligence and humanity to solve problems. 

There is more money in ethnic cleansing and lying about it, keeping up world tensions, causing wars and selling both sides weapons.  Israel is not the first country to do this, it is just better at it than most.

I just got back from 10 days in Af/Pak.  I met alot of wonderful people.  Not one of them said they hated Jews.  I didn’t meet a single person who wouldn’t invite a Jew into his home.  I also talked to many officials, not at a minor level, who I know talk to their Israeli counterparts and have good relationships but don’t talk of it openly.  Yes, it is true, many people in Afghanistan and Pakistan openly hate Jews and hold extreme views.

This has to be stopped through education, through understanding and through developing real societies that work to end all extremism.  However, Israel and the United States have become as extremist as some of the areas of the Islamic world.  Extremism is the problem, not people, not even religion.  The biggest cause of extremism is lack of education.  A huge problem is that the highly educated countries, both Israel and the United States are now fostering a “Taliban type” extremism through, not lack of education but misinformation and propaganda.  When tribal regions of Afghanistan and Pakistan, economically minimized and with little or public education and health turn to religious extremists, we see a problem we can solve with social programs.  When advanced cultures sink into extremism, we can only be reminded of the disasters of the last century, war, holocaust and the massive suffering brought on when a marriage of power, technology and insane nationalism nearly destroyed the entire world.  This is the same mistake we need to fear now.


Taking a careful look at the propaganda is a start.  Honest discussions about a solution in Israel that involves human values, not ethnic cleansing, needs to be addressed.  Dishonesty about the real history of the region and how so many lies have been told about the roots of terrorism, roots all are responsible for, need to be addressed.  This is a human problem, not one for bumper sticker intellectualizing, the level of intellectual interchange we are currently enjoying.  It should be insulting to any righteous Jew. 

Being tough is one thing.  Being human is another.  The inability to know when to be either because belief systems are built on lies and propaganda destroys, not just credibility, but the moral basis of our lives.  Strong people make moral decisions based on truth.  For decades, we have all learned to feed on lies.  It has made us children, malicious children, no better than those we oppose.





Dear Folks, Gordon Duff has come front and center here with this piece. I have a close Jewish friend here in Atlanta, an ex-CIA guy with a famous Confederate family background which is how we met. But is very very pro Israeli. And despite this we have been able to carry on discussing ‘the issue’ without killing each other.
Part of my trying to needle his conscience was sending articles by Jewish Israeli critics like Israel Shamir and Uri Avnery and some lesser knowns, and where I title them ‘Another Righteous Jews’…a pun of course on the long used ‘Righteous Gentile’ label by Zionists to anoint a gentile who has served their interests, even if against their own country.
I could tell that reading about these people was a new experience for him and had some impact. As Gordon Duff lays out so well in his piece, American Jews are often brutally propagandized here with the fictional history they are taught in order to herd them into a more controllable group. For any of you who have been around Jews as a fly on the wall, they can fight and argue with each other incessantly like their lives were at stake.
Some might call this having a ‘spirited discussion’. But the Israeli Knesset passed a resolution years ago banning certain words from being used on the floor when members were addressing each other. I apologize for not being able to present it today as it is buried deep in the files somewhere. But it generally was a list of the nastiest names you can think of…and it was a very very long list 🙂 I promise to try to find it and forward along. It is a gem.
A key tool in keeping this disparate group of folks together, particularly non religious Jews, is having a common enemy. And of course the best common enemy to have is…everybody, as that gives you the most inspiration for sticking together despite ‘issues’ that one might have. And the hidden story in all of this is the what I call the ‘dirty deed’ conditioning…as in ‘we have to do it to them first, so they can’t do it to us.’
Hence we have the ‘drive all Israelis into the sea’ silliness…when they fear no one in the Mid East. Quite the contrary, it is they who are to be feared as they have complete conventional military superiority and the largest WMD arsenal in the Mid East…and they have threatened to use them, too…one time to ‘encourage’ the U.S. to resupply all their ammo and weapons during one of their wars.
To manipulate your own people to be ruthless first strike advocates you have to bring them up on a constant diet of gentile inflicted tragedies upon innocent Jews, while at the same time hiding all history of Jewish inflicted tragedies on innocent everyone else. And for say what is happening now to the Palestinians, you have to add in the ‘they deserve it’ conditioning. In one of my documentaries I used a shot of some Zionist graffiti on the corrugated tin walls of a refugee camp…‘It would be cheaper to kill them’. Can you feel the love now?
Gordon and I, and Michael Santamauro, Uri Avnery, Israeli Shamir, Jeff Gates and Virginia Abernathy all have a common thread in all of our different works, and that is combating the massive misinformation and propaganda that we have to swim through on a daily basis. Unless people are clued in on the scam and all of it’s details so they can spot it coming and duck, they will never be able to effectively fight back.
So for today it is my honor to present this wonderful piece by a Vietnam Marine vet who had been there and done it all, and looking back on it has a few things to share with us today. Tomorrow we will have the Juan Cole version dealing with the same problem.
