Veterans Today: Israel, ISIL have a lot in common

http://www.veteranstoday.com/2014/08/28/israel/

By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor, for Press TV

Israel calls itself a “Jewish state”. Al-Baghdadi’s terrorist group calls itself “Islamic State.”

Both of these terrorist entities define themselves in terms of rigidly sectarian ideologies. Both are squatting on stolen land. Both brutally trample on the rights of those they consider lesser beings – simply because they hold “second-class” religious views. And both proudly commit horrendous atrocities.

The world’s Jews are becoming increasingly uncomfortable with so-called State of Israel, which purports to represent them without ever having asked their permission. (Israel defines itself as the so-called state of, by and for all Jews, and gives all Jews everywhere the automatic right to Israeli citizenship – while denying citizenship to most non-Jews, including the vast majority of Palestinians, simply because they profess another religion.)

Ex-liberal-Zionist Anthony Lerman, writing in the New York Times, has just written a political obituary entitled “The End of Liberal Zionism.” Like many other Jews, Lerman recognizes that it is becoming impossible for liberal, tolerant, reasonable Jewish people to continue to support the so-called Jewish State of Israel.

Saturday’s New York Times also featured an ad placed by anti-Zionist Jews attacking “Israel’s wholesale efforts to destroy Gaza and the murder of more than 2,000 Palestinians, including many hundreds of children.” The ad was signed by 237 survivors and descendants of survivors of the Nazi holocaust.

Last week Henk Zenoli, a Dutchman who helped save a Jewish boy from Nazis during World War II – and whose father died in a Nazi concentration camp – returned his “Righteous Among Nations” award to Israel. He said the award, given to non-Jews who helped Jews during the holocaust, no longer meant anything given the “murder carried out by the [so-called] State of Israel.”

Zenoli has felt Israel’s murderousness personally. He has lost six relatives– so far – to Zionist butchers during this summer’s Israeli assault on Gaza.

Today, the real holocaust is in Occupied Palestine.

Just as thoughtful Jews and their friends are horrified by the crimes of the so-called State of Israel, the vast majority of Muslims are appalled by the so-called Islamic State. (Unlike Israel, which still enjoys a fair amount of Jewish support, Islamic State has virtually no support from any of the world’s established Muslim nations, scholars, or religious organizations.)

Zionist propaganda outlet Fox News has been peddling the big lie that Muslims support so-called Islamic State. Media watchdog group MediaMatters.org, in its article “Muslim Leaders Have Roundly Denounced Islamic State, But Conservative Media Won’t Tell You That,” proves the contrary.

Ironically, while Jews are turning against the so-called Jewish State, and Muslims denounce Islamic State, the two terrorist entities seem to be working together. According to some reports, hundreds of ISIL terrorists have been treated in Israeli hospitals. And while the so-called Jewish State of Israel supports Islamic State’s attempts to overthrow the government of Syria, Islamic State for its part opposes resistance against Zionism while instead working to destabilize Israel’s enemies.

Since the self-styled Jewish State and Islamic State have so much in common – including sectarianism, atrocities, destabilization of neighbors, and squatting on stolen land – and share the same enemies (reasonable Jews and Muslims, and reasonable people in general) – perhaps they should merge into a single entity: ISrael. Netanyahu and al-Baghdadi could serve as co-caliphs, just as Rome sometimes had two emperors.

ISrael would be a paradise for people who like to shoot children and cut off heads. It would be a wonderful place to be a fanatically intolerant bigot loathing lesser beings who profess religious incorrectness.

In ISrael, self-styled chosen people who despise outsiders as cattle would rub shoulders with fanatics who see everyone but themselves as heretics worthy of death. The two groups would get along famously. al-Baghdadi would feel perfectly at home in an Israeli settlement, where he could occasionally venture outside the barbed wire with his rifle to shoot “heretics,” wreck their homes and uproot their olive trees. He might even be able to talk the Zionist settlers into beheading their Palestinian victims rather than just shooting or beating them to death.

While the Zionists of the so-called Jewish State and the Takfiris of Islamic State work together to make Jews and Muslims look like barbarians and war criminals, reasonable Jews and Muslims – along with well-wishers from other religions – need to work together to put an end to such nonsense.

They need not reject the notion of religious governance. If Jews wish to live according to Jewish law, and Muslims according to Islamic law, they should be allowed, indeed encouraged, to do so.

In Islamic Spain, the Ottoman Empire, and other classical Islamic societies, each religious group would organize itself according to its own laws and control its own affairs. Muslims did not force Christians and Jews to follow Muslim rules while the Christians and Jews did not impose their laws and lifestyles on Muslims.

There is no reason why similarly tolerant, pluralistic religious governance cannot happen today.

But modern states have a totalitarian outlook. They try to force everyone to live the same way and follow the same rules. That is why modern states, be they a so-called Jewish State like Israel, an Islamic State like al-Baghdadi’s, fascist or communist states like Hitler’s Germany or Stalin’s USSR, or even so-called liberal democratic states like Europe and the USA, have not yet learned to grant their citizens the level of pluralistic autonomy enjoyed by the religious communities of medieval Andalusia.

Fanatical, intolerant, sectarian, human-rights-abusing “religious” regimes like Netanyahu’s and al-Baghdadi’s are simply extreme examples of the totalitarianism at the root of the modern nation state. So reasonable Jews and Muslims must abjure the siren song of monolithic secularism, even as they reject the defamation of their religions by the vicious extremists of the “Jewish” and “Islamic” states.

The Who-Ya-Gonna-Kill-Next Lottery tickets on sale at your Army Recruiter

Hi readers.  Back in the summer of 1961 the Rooskies were building the Berlin Wall and naturally we were all scared shitless they’d be wanting France or Britain next.  Because we were all dumber than cluckshit and we believed what the US government told us.

Anyway, July 1961, I was feeling patriotic as hell, wanted to kill me some young Russian guys.  Maybe shoot them, blow their damned brains from hell to breakfast.  Or maybe stab them with a bayonet close up, personal and bloody.  So I joined the US Army figuring they were the only branch of the service that actually rubbed up against Rooskies.

Damned Navy guys just floated around safely out in the ocean in ships loaded up with guns and munitions, never get a shot at a single Rooskie, most likely.  And the Air Force guys trained with .22 caliber rifles.  Jeeze.  Whoooo wants to shoot a damned Russian kid with a .22?  Stupid damned Air Force guys didn’t even march around carrying full field packs.

And the US Marines sounded okay, but how the hell would a Marine get all the way over to where there were Rooskies to be killed?  Ivan was going to be trying to hide behind that Berlin Wall.  Getting at him would be a job for good old American dogfaces, climbing over that wall and charging into machine guns aimed by Rooskie kids.  The best a Marine could hope for was maybe getting a chance to kill a Chinaman.

Whell hayuls bayuls!  I spent three years, went through the Cuban Missile Crisis, sea cruised to Japan and Korea and back, and never got to kill nobody, and especially not some Rooskie teenager with a bayonet nor hand grenade.

So I came home and the Vietnam War geared up, and I got out.  The guys who went in just after I did ended up killing all manner of brown people who didn’t need killing, but no damned Rooskies.  Nor Chinamen, either.

Later on guys volunteered to go kill brown people in wossname, Kuwait, Iraq, and that other place over there, Africanistan?  Something along those lines, anyway.  But the Rooskies had donealready pulled all their teenagers back inside their boundaries and good American boys couldn’t get at them.

But there’s still hope.  Some damned warlord over there is making a nuisance of himself and threatening to send some teenagers off to get their asses blown away, and the guy, wossname, in the White House is making noises suggesting he might lie claiming those Rooskie kids need killing.

He ought to have a belly full of killing brown people by now.  Rooskie white kids would be a refreshing change.  And meanwhile there’s that hodgepodge thing going on over in Western Iraq and Syria where the sky’s the limit.  Hells bells, just kill anythng that moves and you’ll hit someone who hates our guts.  Because we’ve probably blown the legs off their relatives one-time-or-another.

As a backup plan, if our boys run out of people to drop explosives on, there’s always white people living in Israel, but they’re harder targets, hiding in colonies over in Palestine.

Did Obama kill John Kennedy?

A growing body of evidence uncovered by diligent citizens reveals shocking truths.  It’s a question that’s troubled me for some while.

Did Obama Kill JFK?

But there’s also this:

If the Prez killed JFK as an adult traveling in time it’s a far more serious matter than if he did it as an infant, presumably having been through firearms training in Arizona.

Someone needs to tell the wife of that ex-US President to hush the hell up

Now the damned woman’s saying this guy in the What House should be showing leadership.  Jaysus H. Cheeeerist!  Leadership is the last thing we need in the What House.  Leadership manifested in the human form of a series of What House residents is what got us into this mess.

Leadership, for that matter, is what the What House missus and her butch ladyfriend, Janet Reno, demonstrated when they lined up the US Army, the US Navy, the US Airforce, the FBI, the DWI, the AWOL and everyone else available and  burned  Mount Pleasant down around the ears of dozens of men, women and children Christians.  Texas Christians.  Texas Christians who were never accused of breaking any Federal statute.

No, leadership, now and for the remainder of the 21st Century, is forbidden to enter the US Office of President.  Especially if anyone aspiring to that office should be elected to it.

Henceforth US leadership needs to come more openly from Israel.  Which is where it’s been coming from all along, but now it needs to be open and aboveboard about it.

At which time the systematic occupation of the What House by women, women of Hispanic Origin, women of Asian Origin, women of Native American Origin, women of female Origin can begin and continue until all catagories and subcatatories of women have occupied the What House, redecorated it, given it some tasteful alterations, new drapes and re-upholstered all the furniture.

 Research of Past and Continued Racism Inflicted on African-Descent People in Springfield, Missouri, USA
A list of other incidents which indicate the degree of local racism are as follows:
Fall, 1994 – A nineteen-year-old African-American male was found hanged to death thirty miles north of Springfield. Although information to the contrary exists, his death was officially ruled a suicide.
December, 1997 – An African-decent man was brutally beaten by three European-American skinheads. He had to be taken to the hospital. Two of the skinheads were arrested, but they eventually received sentences of 5-years probation.June 17, 2001 – An African-American man was stabbed three times in a Denny’s Restaurant by skinheads (reportedly 15 skinheads-shaved heads, Aryan Nations tee-shirts, swastikas, and white supremacist tattoos). Although there were several witnesses at the time of the incident, no one had been arrested, despite the fact that the Justice Department was involved in the investigation. Community activists/advocates who had tried to get updated information about the case got no responses from the Justice Department representatives. Amazingly, around January 25, 2004, an announcement was made that local law enforcement officers along with the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) would be investigating the case. The community will have to see what happens.
August, 2001 – Four African-American county jail inmates were urinated on by two European-American jailers. Although the inmates had asked to speak to civil rights activists, such contact was denied. The inmates eventually received $25,000 settlements each. Yet most of them used the money to bail themselves out of jail, pay back child support and to pay their attorneys. At this writing, community activists/advocates who have filed a complaint about the incident with the U.S. Justice Department at the request of two inmates’ relatives have not received a response.August, 2002 – After an African-American man complained to the police chief about police harassment, he had a visit soon after from two European-American police officers who threatened to take him to jail if he ever complained to the chief again.October 2, 2002 – An African-descent male originally from Kenya was found hanged to death about a hundred feet away from the site of the 1906 lynching. His death was officially ruled a suicide, but community activists/advocates do not think so.

July 25, 2003 – An African-American youth (nineteen years old) was found dead hanging from a rope just outside of Springfield. This information circulated by word of mouth as the event did not end up being reported in the newspaper. Many people in the African-American community learned about the incident more than six months later.

«Article published Jul 9, 2005Teens face lynching charges in Gaffney
LYNNE POWELL,CherokeeCountyBureauGAFFNEY — A black 16-year-old who was assaulted by five white teenagers in an apparently racially motivated attack has already forgiven his assailants, his grandmother says.But BrendaClyburn says he still fears for his safety.Rising Gaffney High SchooljuniorIsaiahClyburn continues to recover from bruises, cuts and possible internal injuries after the five teenagers he had never seen before allegedly beat him Thursday evening.Isaiah was walking along Ellis Ferry Road about 6 p.m. after spending time with friends, enjoying his afternoon off from his part-time job at a local restaurant. As three trucks filled with the five boys passed, one of the boys yelled a racial slur before the trucks turned back down the road toward him.Christopher Scott Cates, 17, of 1120Campton Road in Inman, climbed out of one truck and began fighting with Isaiah in the road, Sheriff BillBlanton said.The four other teenagers — 18-year-old Justin Ashley Phillips of 207 Crooked Tree Drive in Inman, 17-year-old Kenneth Miller of 144 Colony Pike Road in Inman, Jerry Christopher Toney of 1005 Melody Lane in Spartanburg and 16-year-old Luke Grice of Inman — got out of the trucks and kicked and hit Isaiah, Blanton said.

Detective David Oglesby charged all five with second-degree lynching and also charged Miller with reckless driving. Grice has been charged as an adult. Lynching carries a maximum of 20 years in prison.

“I don’t know how else to say it, but an angel appeared and saved Isaiah,” Brenda Clyburn said.

The man Isaiah’s grandmother calls an angel hasn’t been identified by police or prosecutors, but Blanton said a man who was driving along Ellis Ferry saw what was happening, pulled Isaiah into his car and called 911.

The suspects got back into their trucks, and Miller wrecked the truck he was driving in an effort to leave before police arrived, Blanton said.

Brenda Clyburn said she and her son, Steven, are thankful Isaiah received minor injuries.

Isaiah was released from Upstate Carolina Medical Center and is recuperating at home. He wasn’t present Friday afternoon for the bail hearing for each of his alleged attackers.

The Clyburn family doesn’t bear any ill will toward the teenagers, and Isaiah, who became a Christian three months ago, has asked for prayers.

“I don’t really understand what the boys were doing,” Brenda Clyburn said. “I don’t know if they really knew what they were doing, if they’re ashamed or what, but (the severity of the crime) seemed to hit them when police put handcuffs on them.

“This could have been a terrible tragedy, but Isaiah had angels looking after him.”

Assistant Solicitor Abel Gray requested high bail for each of the suspects, saying they pose a threat to the community and have no ties to Cherokee County.

Cates has a pending charge of malicious injury to personal property in Spartanburg County. None of the other suspects have prior criminal records.

Gray told Judge Frank Crocker that Isaiah’s father fears for his son’s safety and described the attack as “vicious and heinous.” Gray also pointed to the “randomness” and “severity” of the assault.

Crocker set bail for each of the suspects at $50,000, ordered them to be home by 9 p.m. each night, and instructed them not to have any contact with the Clyburn family.

The suspects, wearing dirt-stained clothes from the day before, didn’t speak at their hearing.

Their families, some of them tearful during the hearing, would not comment.

Time Traveler President of the US in 2016

Hi readers.  Thanks for coming by for a reead.

I began watching this stuff a couple of days ago when I experienced a setback in my physical situation and couldn’t do my daily exercize routines without undoing a lot else.  So to pass the time I began browsing through the YouTube pantheon of weirdness.

Interestingly, Andrew Basiago’s arrived amidst a forest of familiar trees.  He says the was trained for the Pegasus Project by Ed Danes, whom I’d read because of flirting with remote viewing a decade or more ago.  And Pegasus mightn’t have been headquartered at Socorro, New Mexico, where I lived from 1995 until 1999, but it had a presence there.  Back when during the late 1990s Mel King and I were attempting to build a time machine, reading about Montauk and anything else we could find about time travel.  Pegasus came up a fair amount.

I hadn’t thought about any of that for what?  Decades?  At least a good many years.  So I was surprised to find myself listening to this guy and watching videos of him talking about some ground I once covered as thoroughly as I felt able.

He says Ed Danes told him back in the 1970s he was going to be President, though maybe not immediately following his fellow Pegasus member, the guy in the White House now.  [Who was also told by Ed Danes at that same time, he would serve as President.  The White House guy now, we're told, was also a Pegasus operative.]

So, while I don’t vote, couldn’t care less who sits in the White House, and probably won’t live to see who wins the next Presidential election anyway, I find the entire subject interesting enough to occupy a few minutes of my diminishing sand from the top of the hourglass.

Good for some smiles and knowing I ain’t going to vote anyway it’s good to know there’s a candidate at least as unlikely as my own life has been.  He carries a heavy advantage in my view by not being Democrat, nor Republican, nor Independent.  That offsets almost anything else he isn’t.  Including sane, if he happens not to be.

And if, as he asserts, the guy in the White House now has traveled in time and has visited our colony on Mars, hell, it might explain a lot.

Somewhat mildly exciting in an abstract sort of way.
