International law vs US democratic practice

US and international law

By Lawrence Davidson

International law is vital to the welfare of every man, woman and child on this planet, although the vast majority of them do not know this is so.

The vital aspect lies in the fact that the universally applicable nature of human rights – which prohibit such actions as the use of torture, arbitrary arrest and detention while supporting freedom of movement, conscience, cultural rights and the right to a standard of living adequate for health and well-being, among other things – has its primary foundation in international law. Examples of this can be found in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the various Geneva Conventions.

The importance of international law

To understand just how important international law is to the universal application of human rights, one has to consider just how inadequate to this end are national and local laws. This inadequacy should come as no surprise. For hundreds of years now, the dominant form of political organisation has been the nation-state. The most common sort of law is that specific to the state, and in the vast majority of cases protection of rights under such law is reserved for the citizen. In other words, if you are not a citizen of a particular state, you cannot assume you have any rights or protections within that state’s borders. Worse yet, if you happen to be stateless (and the number of such people is rapidly increasing), you are without local legal rights just about everywhere.

Ideally, this is not how things should go. Indeed, Article 6 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights asserts that “everyone has the right to recognition everywhere as a person before the law”. And, if you find yourself in a country that has ratified this declaration, you should come under its protection.

Unfortunately, this is rarely the case in practice. The mystique of the nation-state and the nativism that goes along with it often leads to the denigration of this vital legal obligation just because it originates from outside of the state.

US behaviour

Many people in the West assume that the denigration of international law upholding human rights occurs mostly within authoritarian states – states that do not protect such rights for their own citizens, much less recognise them as universally applicable.

But that is not the case. Such flouting of international law is common among democracies as well. It is even noticeable in the behaviour of the United States. Take for instance the current treatment of illegal immigrants. Their human rights are certainly not respected in this country which, historically, is a nation of immigrants.

The problem goes beyond the maltreatment of immigrants. In fact, the current dismissive attitude toward human rights and the international laws that uphold them has its roots in the fear of terrorism. Such actions as arbitrary arrest, indefinite detention, the use of torture and so forth are all justified by the so-called war on terror. These actions by the US government are illegal under international law, but because the enforcement of law is almost always the business of the state, and the United States is a “superpower”, who is to call US officials to account for their crimes? No one. International law has no designated policemen.

The culpability of special interest politics

Although the “war on terror” appears to be an open-ended one, its influence on policy and national behaviour may wax and wane. There are other obstacles that are actually structurally embedded within US democratic practice that also undermine adherence to international law. One of these is the pervasive influence of apparently all powerful special interests, or lobbies, in the formation of state policy.

Within the United States, there are a myriad number of special interests that ply the halls of power at every level of government. Some of them are dedicated to good causes. Indeed, advocates for human rights and supporters of international law have their own, albeit not very influential, lobbies.


… the Zionists’… multiple lobbies influence US Middle East policy so as to assure unquestioned support of Israel, and thereby secure American involvement not only in the destruction of Palestinian human rights, but of the Palestinians as a nation and a people.


There are other interests of great power, however, that devote themselves to, among other things, the dehumanisation of entire groups of people. A good example are the Zionists whose multiple lobbies influence US Middle East policy so as to assure unquestioned support of Israel, and thereby secure American involvement not only in the destruction of Palestinian human rights, but of the Palestinians as a nation and a people. In short, the power of some special interests is sufficient to involve the US in what amounts to international criminal behaviour.

The average US citizen, engrossed as he or she is in their local environment, does not understand this aspect of their politics. The media, from which US citizens take most of their information on government behaviour, are themselves subject to the influence of the same special interests that stalk the halls of power in Washington DC. Therefore, the media cannot be relied upon to educate the citizenry on the role of lobbies.

We are thus faced with a messy set of problems: widespread lack of popular awareness of how special interests can control government, what this can result in, and the fact that this lack of awareness is likely compounded by the public’s equally widespread apathy regarding their own ignorance.

It is this insularity and the know-nothing attitude that goes along with it that has allowed special interests to become the main centre of political power in America. Short of catastrophic political breakdown, this arrangement is not going to change. The only thing that those who value international law and human rights can do is to continue to build their own special interest lobbies and compete for influence in government against the dehumanisers and other assorted international law breakers.

Washington’s Second Front in Information War against Russia

by Finian Cunningham
US evidence. Trust us !

US evidence. Trust us Again!

Having lost the propaganda battle over the doomed airliner, Washington seems intent on opening up a second front in the information war, alleging cross-border shelling by Russian forces.

But such is American arrogance and deceit, this information war runs a very real risk of inciting a full-on shooting war between world powers.

"Putin is unlikely to stand down, or back off." Russian President Vladimir Putin makes a televised statement at the Novo-Ogaryovo state residence outside Moscow, in the early hours of July 21, 2014. -- Business Insider.

“Putin is unlikely to stand down, or back off.”
Russian President Vladimir Putin makes a televised statement at the Novo-Ogaryovo state residence outside Moscow, in the early hours of July 21, 2014.
— Business Insider.

Russia is not backing down to play Washington’s Fall Guy over the Malaysia Airlines disaster – and that «truculence» by Moscow to not meekly accept the assigned guilty role is earning it increasing pariah status in official American eyes.

The Washington Post reported at the weekend: «Instead of Mr Putin de-escalating the conflict after the Malaysia Airlines tragedy, ‘he’s actually taken a decision to escalate,’ Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, chairman of the [US] Joint Chiefs of Staff, told a security forum» in Aspen, Colorado.

Those words convey a sense of arrogant disbelief among American leaders, who have asserted Russian complicity in the downing of the civilian jet last week over Ukraine… Washington spared no time in rushing to heap blame on Moscow within hours of the crash near the city of Donetsk in eastern Ukraine, with the loss of all 298 on board.

Washington has so far provided no specific details to support its finger pointing against Moscow or «Russian-backed separatist militia» in eastern Ukraine. Washington has been relying arrogantly on the presumption that what it says is all that matters, and that it is not obliged to disclose any details of its «intelligence» to verify its claims – no matter how provocative those claims are.

Meanwhile, the Russian military command has furnished European Union officials in Brussels with a dossier of its own evidence, based on satellite, radar and air traffic control communications that tend to show a completely different set of circumstances over the downing of the airliner. Russia’s information, which is verifiable unlike Washington’s with-held «secret intelligence», strongly suggests that Malaysia Airlines MH17 was taken down by Western-backed Ukrainian military forces under the command of the Kiev regime. 

Russia’s stoic resolve to keep calm amid the maelstrom of US-led accusations following the crash seems to be now provoking even more reckless claims from Washington to open up a second front in the information war.

On Thursday, the US State Department said that Russian forces were guilty of firing artillery shells across the border into Ukraine. Spokeswoman Marie Harf would not disclose what evidence the US had to support such a tendentious claim. Harf was, in effect, accusing Russia of committing an act of war on a sovereign state, which the US is allied to, yet she was unwilling to provide the substance to support this grave implication.

As with the airliner incident, the only discernible sources of US information are what its client regime in Kiev is telling it; and a variety of dubious social media references. The Kiev regime’s capacity for telling lies and fabrication has been proven countless times in recent months since its illegal coup against the elected Yanukovych government on February 23. For example, the regime continues to deny that its military forces are attacking civilian centres in Donetsk and Lugansk, even though the United Nations has reported hundreds of civilians killed during the past months from Kiev’s so-called «anti-terror operations» in the region.

Even the pro-Western rights group Human Rights Watch has lately come out to condemn the Kiev regime for crimes against humanity over its indiscriminate firing of Grad rockets. In spite of video evidence of these projectiles being fired and horrendous civilian casualties, the Kiev regime continues to deny it has Grad rockets in region. A spokesman for the regime forces turned reality on its head this week and has accused «terrorists» of bombing their own people to put the blame on Kiev.

The Kiev junta has also denied having deployed anti-aircraft Buk M1 missile launchers in Donetsk, which may have been involved in shooting down the civilian airliner. Washington says it accepts Kiev’s assurance on this, even though verifiable Russian intelligence has shown that the Kiev military did in fact deploy these missile systems in the vicinity and at the time of Malaysia Airlines MH17 going down.

Since the US State Department refuses to evince its latest «proof» of Russia’s alleged cross-border shelling, we may speculate that it is based on social media photographs posted on the site VKontakhe hours before Washington announced its latest claim. The photographs were ostensibly posted by a Russian soldier who bragged about «shelling Ukraine all night long».

A Russian soldier, by the name of Vadim Grigoriev, has since declared publicly that his social media site has been hacked into, and that the posted photographs have no relation to the alleged incidents of shelling cited by Washington or the Kiev regime.

Why Marie Harf at the US State Department press briefing would not elaborate on what the sources of intelligence were for her claims of Russian cross-border artillery fire is no doubt because similar American social media «evidence» implicating Russia over the downing of the Malaysia airliner were quickly shown to be fake. US «intelligence» was subsequently scoffed at in many media around the world for its amateurish attempt to incriminate Russia. 

Reeling from that public relations embarrassment, the Washington Post reported one anonymous US official as saying: «We are seeing a full-court press by the Russian government to instruct affiliated or friendly elements to manipulate the media environment to spread Russia’s version of the story.»

Chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey  Speaking from the Aspen Security Forum, a defense industry conference in Colorado, Dempsey said Pentagon planners are now looking at military options “we haven’t had to look at for 20 years”

In other words, the US is irked by the fact that its narrative on the airliner, implicating Russia, is not working to whip up a worldwide frenzy against Moscow based on America’s say-so. And also by the fact that US intelligence is being exposed as relying on crumby social media for its «high confidence» pronouncements.

Having seen its Putin-is-to-blame narrative failing to impress world opinion on the downed airliner, Washington now seems intent on opening up a second propaganda front – namely, that Russia is escalating the conflict in eastern Ukraine by conducting cross-border attacks.

It is telling that US General Dempsey made his accusations against Russia within hours of the State Department «revealing» the alleged cross-border shelling. Dempsey did offer some hesitation by saying «if these reports turn out to be true» but that did not stop him from rushing headlong with reckless accusations against Russia.

Nor did the US State Department’s undisclosed, tenuous claims act in any way to restrain American media.

Under the headline ‘Russia Steps Up Help for Rebels in Ukraine War’, the New York Times reports this weekend: «Rather than backing down after last week’s downing of a civilian passenger jet, Russia appears to be intervening more aggressively in the war in eastern Ukraine in what American and Ukrainian officials call a dangerous escalation that will almost certainly force more robust retaliation from the United States and Europe.»

Note the repetition of General Dempsey’s peeved phrase, «rather than backing down after last week’s downing of a civilian passenger jet».

Also note that the NY Times can only go as far as saying: «Russian appears to be intervening more aggressively in the war in eastern Ukraine». That necessary qualification «appears to be» is because there is no intelligence or evidence, apart from the unreliable word of the US-backed Kiev regime and dodgy social media accounts. Nevertheless, that does not stop the NY Times and other American media slyly stepping up the accusations against Russia to a definitive level.

The irony in all this is that the evidence shows that incidents of cross-border shelling in eastern Ukraine are actually being conducted by the US-backed Kiev forces – against Russian territory and civilians. During the past two months there have been at least 10 separate cross-border mortar or artillery attacks carried out by the US-backed Ukrainian military on Russian territory. In one such attack on 13th July, a Russian civilian was killed when shells hit the city of Donetsk in Rostov region (a Russian city with the same name as its Ukrainian counterpart).

On Friday just past, a Russian team of criminal investigators came under mortar fire from pro-Kiev forces when they entered the village of Primiussky in Rostov to conduct a probe into a reported mortar attack the day before. A total of more than 70 mortars were fired from inside Ukraine into Russia.

These deadly incidents of cross-border shelling of Russian territory have been previously confirmed by monitors belonging to the Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE). 

Yet rather than dealing with the verifiable facts, the US government and its news media are leaping to unsubstantiated claims against Russia that are unsupported by any evidence. 

Reckless American accusations that Russia is escalating conflict in Ukraine would seem to be a substitute for failed attempts to implicate Moscow over the downing of the Malaysia airliner. Despite Washington’s intense goading, the European Union has not gone along with the narrative to impose the punitive economic sanctions against Russia that are desired by the US.

Having lost the propaganda battle over the doomed airliner, Washington seems intent on opening up a second front in the information war, alleging cross-border shelling by Russian forces.

But such is American arrogance and deceit, this information war runs a very real risk of inciting a full-on shooting war between world powers.

Jewish ritual murder

Sacrifice of Isaac by Caravaggio, 1603. An angel intervenes to halt a ritual sacrifice of Isaac, by his father Abraham, biblical scene.

A modern case of possible Jewish ritual murder was exposed during the Oprah Winfrey show On May 1, 1989. This show had as its guest a person who, as a young girl (depicted, but she is in disquise), was forced to participate in a ritual in which a Christian infant was sacrificed. Oprah Winfrey asked her guest “what do you sacrifice for?“. Answer: “For power“.

Jewish ritual murder is the murder of a non-Jew by Jews in celebration of the Jewish religious festivals of Purim and Passover. The ritual’s purpose is to drain the blood of a non-Jewish person (preferrably a young Christian boy) in order to make three cornered Purim pastries or matzo.[1] Both Purim and Passover celebrates the deaths of “oppressors” of the Jews and their children. Accusations/reports of Jewish ritual murders have occurred in all ages, including modern times (a famous instance happened in 1989 during the Oprah Winfrey Show[2] ). While some of these may have been false charges, a strong case in favour of the reality of Jewish ritual murder was presented by Arnold Leese in 1938[3] in his book My Irrelevant Defence. Most recently Philip de Vier published the book Ritual Murder in 2001.

While many people are knowledgeable of the human sacrifices alledgedly having been performed in the dense jungles of Africa or those of South America, people are nevertheless consistently amazed when it is discovered that one of society’s so-called “civilized” members has been perpetrating such a grisly feat for hundreds of years.

The exact number of children ritually murdered by Jews is unknown, but the number may be in the millions[4].




Ariel Toaff’s work

Recently in ItalyAriel Toaff, an Israeli university professor controversially published the book Ebrei d’Europa e Pasque di Sangue (European Jews and Blood Easters) where he hypothesized that some accusations of the past against Jews for their rituals were true. He was harshly criticized and had to call his book off.Israel Shamir was among the few who supported his research. The focus is set on the figure of 2-year-old Saint Simon of Trento, also called Simonino da Trento, who was kidnapped and murdered by Jews. His body was found in a cellar of a Jewish owned house in Trento, Italy by local magistrates. There was even an eye-witness. Eight Jews were sentenced to death and executed in late June 1475.


1750s–Algeria: bribe money was used to quash the facts. 1791–Pera (Constantinople): Helmut Schramm records the ritual murder of a young Greek child. 1810–Aleppo, Syria: murder of a woman at Easter/Purim time. 1812–Isle Of Corfu: three Jews were convicted in the murder of three children. Monniot in Le Crime Rituel Chez Les Juifs says the records were kept in the official archives of the island. 1821–Beirut, Lebanon: an adult Christian male was the victim. 1824–Beirut: Fatallah Sayegh, a Muslim, was slain for ritual purposes. 1824–Schramm cites yet another child ritual murder case on Corfu. 1826-1827–Antioch: at Easter, two Christian boys were ceremonially slain. 1829–Hama, Syria: the Jews of Hama slew a Muslim girl, and subsequently were expelled from the city. 1834–Tripoli, Libya: a Christian Greek fell victim. 1838–Jerusalem: There was an attempt to murder a Muslim for ritual purposes. 1847–Lebanon: Jews were apprehended after murdering a Christian boy.[3] Nor were these the last cases to arise in Damascus, another occurring in 1890.[4]

The following two cases bear most directly on the Damascus murders.

1839–Beirut, Lebanon: Both Sir Richard Burton and Arnold Leese mention that inspectors detected a mysterious flask of blood while it passed through the Customs House in Beirut. Leese gives the details: “A Remittance of Blood. During the Damascus Ritual Murder trial, the French Consul, Comte de Ratti-Menton, by whose energy and determination the case was brought to light, received a letter from Comte de Suzannet, who wrote: ‘Nearly a year ago, a box arrived at the custom-house that a Jew came to claim; on being asked to open it, he refused and offered first 100 Piastres, then 200, then 300, then 1,000 and at last 10,000 Piastres (2,500 Francs). The custom-house official persisted, and opened the box, discovering therein a bottle of blood. On asking the Jew for an explanation, the latter said that they had the custom of preserving the blood of their Grand Rabbis or important men. He was allowed to go, and left for Jerusalem.’ Comte Ratti-Menton (also French Consul for Damascus) later looked for the chief of the custom-house, but found that he had died. His successor only vaguely recollected the affair; but he confirmed that the box had several bottles of red liquid. The man who came to claim the shipment was Aaron Stambouli of Damascus, who had told him the substance was an efficacious drug.” The quick death of the chief custom-house officer is not surprising; witnesses to the crimes of Israel are subject to a sudden demise. But the reader will perhaps be more interested by the fact that Aaron Stambouli was one of those found guilty in the Damascus murders the very next year.![5]

1840–Isle of Rhodes: This transpired at almost the same time as the better-known Damascus Affair. The circumstances are familiar: a small boy, missing, last seen going into a home in the Jewish Quarter. A public outrage and demand for action followed, and Ottoman Governor Yusuf Pasha ordered an investigation. As in Damascus, this was at the instigation of several European Consuls. From here on, the Rhodes Case is a mishmash of charges, counter-charges and allegations. The Alliance Israelite Universelles of France and other important Judaic organizations of the day, bribed the authorities, paralleling what happened in Damascus. In yet another parallel, Austria withdrew its call for an investigation and supported dismissal of all charges. Sir Moses Montefiore, Adolph Cremieux, and the Rothchild barons (financiers of the Austro-Hungarian Empire) were successful — the charges were dropped and the accused freed. The Greek Orthodox clergy and European consuls were left holding the bag, their honor impugned by involvement in a case with no results. And the victim and his killers? The case remained unsolved. No one else was ever accused

1839-1840 were active years for the ritual murder cult. Jonathan Frankel displays a revealing map, showing cases that year not only in Damascus and Rhodes, but at four other locations as well: Constantinople and Smyrna in the Near East as well as Schwetz, Prussia, and Julich, Bavaria.[6] He also says: “Falling into this category, too, were the many criminal investigations and trials in which Jews were accused of ritual murder. Probably the best-known of such events in the period under discussion here was the Beiliss Trial held in Kiev in 1913. Among contemporaries, especially the Jews in the countries involved, though, the cases of Tisza-Eszlar in 1882 (in Hungary), of Xanten in 1891 (in Prussia), and of Polna in 1899 (in Bohemia) engendered hardly less tension. The Damascus affair of 1840, as already noted, caused an extraordinary sensation in its own time.” As the reader will soon see, this is an understatement.


Goy katan, «small Christian», was the expression used to introduce the victim (who was often anonymous) of the ritual murder, whose blood should have been added to the foods to show and to eat in the Seder dinners.

  • This sentence means “This is the blood of a young Christian” , and was used as a ritual spell for murderous dinners:

Zeh ha-dam shel goy katan

  • This is a quotation in the book by Giulio Morosini, originally written in old Italian, quoted by Ariel Toaff in his book:

[referring to Jews] You use to teach, beside giving them milk, the observance and the conception of the holy law and language, by Jewish names and by uttering many things… And this is done so as for them to soon understand the law and the Bible. But alongside with that, you spread the hatred toward the Goyim (Gentiles), by which you mean Christians, you never give up the chance to curse them, or to let them be cursed by your children. Furthermore, the name by which you often use to call our [Christian] children is Shekatzim, which means abominations, by that word you also call the idols. In the same way you call our churches with another synonymous, Tonghavà, which still means abomination. You often warn your children to stay away fromTonghavà (Christian churches), not to speak with Sheketz and other similar bad things.

Shekez meant «something which was an abomination», while its female form sheksa or shekse was a neologism which indicated the young Christian girls who had sexual affairs with youngJews.

Until recently, among Ashkenazi Jews in Venice, «scigazzello» was in use as a despicable word. The word shekezshegez or shegesc was meant to point in a spiteful way the young Christians, referred to as “abominative expressions of what was created”, it was very used in almost every city where German-Jewish communities had formed, even in Northern Italy. This word is not quoted in the protocols of the trials of Trento, where the word goy («people», «nation») is used to generally refer to Christians, and goy katan («little Christian»), meaning small boy of Christian religion.


Jews celebrating the murder of four innocengentile children and calling for more. This is the story of the killed children.

Zio-Nazi attempted genocide must fail — Lessons from Canada’s genocide


Justin Trudeau - Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada

Justin Trudeau – Leader of the Liberal Party of Canada

The Zionist Project is to eradicate all Palestinians who make claim to a home in Palestine. The Zionist Project is exactly what Israel has been doing since its artificial creation.

The Zionist Project is planned incremental dispossession and an on-going attempted genocide, and this has been repeatedly and explicitly expressed by its architects and executioners. The Zionist Project as attempted genocide is also expressly cheered-on by many Israeli citizens and by members of the Zionist diaspora of all religions.

The Israeli apartheid is not meant as a sustained apartheid. It is an increment in an attempted genocide that accompanies a vast racist pillaging of land and resources (water, gas).

The attempted Israeli genocide, in its on-going mid-phase, is not unlike the now-accomplished Canadian genocide against First Peoples. First there were population displacements, then exterminations, then land treaties, then reservations, then forced cultural assimilation for any survivors, then cultural normalization of the crimes, and never any possibility of return or reparations.

A main difference is that Canada’s genocide is virtually complete, whereas Israel’s attempted genocide is in full swing and unfolding militarily before the world, in a time of instant and distributed electronic publishing, and in a time when other genocides have been named, exposed, condemned, and studied and understood. [1]

Another difference is that Canadian politicians are — these days, in the end-game of the Canadian genocide — lying cover-up artists, whereas Israeli politicians are straight-up, and are supported by an overtly and enthusiastically racist population.

By comparison, Canadian citizens are racist in condoning their state’s violence (both domestic and international) but they practice language-cleansing to hide their true racism from themselves. (There is even a pseudo-intellectual legalistic framework to help accomplish this known as “critical race theory” [2] — The aftermath of a genocide is always a bit tricky, with wanting a “safe” mental-environment for the children and all, and for the professionals that continue to advance and maintain the exploitative system.)

Yet another difference is that Israel was created and is supported by the super-genocidal states (USA, Britain,et al.) in order to prevent and police-against any unified emergence of the Muslim World in the resource-rich and geopolitically central Middle East. Then again, Canada was entirely supported by Britain during the most brutal period of its genocide, and this was in-part to counter USA emergence and domination on the North American continent.

An analysis of Israel’s on-going attempted genocide is informed by the social history of Canada’s genocide, and this model should be predictive.

If Israel’s attempted genocide is allowed to ripen to completion, then Israeli’s will cleanse their history and their language and thoughts, in the post-genocide period. We must not get there. The overt racism-of-expression of Israeli society and of the Zionist diaspora is an unmistakable indicator that the attempted genocide is in mid-project, as was the case in Canada during the overtly racist campaigns to take the territory.

Language and silence are both indicators of intention, but racist language is not the cause of the genocidal thrust. The cause is a lust for power and resources actuated by global and regional dominance hierarchies that are very real entities in themselves: The top layer probably being the global exploitation project of the American Empire, driven by its military economy and its control of global economic instruments.

I personally do not believe that Israel is the tail that wags the USA dog, but there is certainly a large degree of that going on [3][4]. The Zionist diaspora derives power and influence from supporting the Zionist Project, from its support for Israel’s genocide [4].

The Zionist Project must now be stopped. This genocide must be stopped in its tracks, if it’s the last significant geopolitical accomplishment of the global civil society. The tide is turning. We see real political movement in the UK itself. Western World civil society must not be irrelevant and ineffective. We owe that to ourselves.

The only effective barrier against the Zionist Project at the moment is the remarkable Palestinian resistance itself. And Israel is doing everything it can to isolate, divide, erode, and destroy that resistance. The Palestinian resistance is phenomenal. Against all odds, Palestine has repeatedly found ways to assert itself, despite the tremendous pressures to make it abandon.

The World civil society must actuate arguably-the-first stoppage of a nation-scale genocide pursued by a colonial invader.

There can be peace and coexistence but Israel is hell-bent on its Zionist Project, and those Muslim countries with corrupt leaders are participating in the Israeli genocide rather than impeding it. Therefore, the only chance for Palestinian survival, at this time, is increased armed Palestinian resistance. And that is something Western civil society had better understand before it’s too late, if it wants to be part of the solution rather than part of the problem [5].

If Israel cannot be discouraged, and since it cannot be disarmed, then Palestine must be armed sufficiently to effectively discourage the on-going Israeli genocide. Can Israel be discouraged from pursuing its vicious plan? It’s time to test that question, while supporting that Palestine be enabled to defend itself.

Israel must live and thrive without Zionism and thus without its apartheid/genocide project, and Judaism must thrive in Israel and in the World, but the Zionist project must die. Until that can be feasible, Israel must be ostracized, isolated, boycotted, and shunned. World civil society can achieve this if it gets serious and starts by rejecting the Zionist diaspora wherever it acts. Jews that abandon and reject the Israeli genocide must be loved, and Zionists of all religions must be constrained from supporting the Israel genocide.

In Canada, Stephen Harper is the “Prime Minister of Canada for Israel”. Israel’s regional violence keeps the price of oil high and the tar sands exploitable and profitable to the US masters of the Canadian economy.

The Canadian Israel lobby is an arm of US imperialism and has taken over as arguably the most influential superstructure acting on Canadian politics. Trudeau [6] and Mulcair are vying to be more Zionist than Harper. It’s disgusting and humiliating for Canadians.

Virtually no Canadian members of parliament have condemned Israel for its grotesque massacre. Those who speak out condone and normalize the genocide. The Canadian mainstream media is largely poisoned by the same Zionism [7].

In Canada’s capital Ottawa, the university presidents of the two largest universities in the city are both staunch Zionists that make artificial academic ties with Israel and suppress student movements for justice for Palestinians.

This has all gone too far. It’s time to roll back Zionism in Canada and everywhere. Palestinians are doing the remarkable. The least we can do for ourselves is to cut back Zionists in our own countries.

US and I$raHell Quietly Break Up Iraq


US Court Orders Kurdish Oil Seized

oil tanker

by Dr Stuart Jeanne Bramhall

While the world is distracted with I$raHell atrocities in Gaza, the US and Israel are quietly breaking up Iraq. According to Reuters UK, a federal court in Texas has ordered US Marshals to seize a $100 million cargo of Kurdish oil on a tanker off the coast of Galveston, Texas – but only if the tanker enters US territorial waters.

Attorneys for the government of Iraq laid claim to the oil in a lawsuit they filed on July 28. Since May, the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) has shipped five million-barrel tankers of oil from the Turkish port of Ceyhan in defiance of Iraqi law, which mandates that Baghdad has sole authority over Iraq’s natural resources. One cargo of Kurdish crude was delivered to the United States in May to an unidentified buyer.

Four other tanker loads of Kurdish oil have been delivered to I$raHell.

The recent inability of the Iraqi government to defend its northern territories from the Islamic State (aka ISIS aka ISIL) has emboldened the KRG to assert control over the oil-rich city of Kirkuk. With the complicity of the Turkish government, they have been marketing the oil on their own behalf. Because Kurdistan is land-locked, the oil must be shipped via pipeline to Turkey.

Obama’s Contradictory Position on Kurdish Autonomy

This is one rare instance in which the US and I$raHell appear to be on opposite sides (or do they?). According to the Wall Street Journal, the Obama administration publicly opposes direct oil sales by Kurdistan, fearing this could contribute to the break-up of Iraq.

Yet, repeating a common pattern, the official position contradicts growing evidence that the CIA is training and arming ISIS militants.

I$raHell, meanwhile, is eager to expand trade with Kurdistan. According to unnamed I$raHell officials, they see it as an opportunity to expand Israel’s limited diplomatic network in the Middle East, while simultaneously shoring up the country’s energy security.

Gaza’s Real-Life Apocolypto!



The priest is to place his hand on the head of the sin offering and slaughter it…Then the priest is to take some of the blood with his finger and put it on the horns of the altar and pour out the rest of the blood at the base of the altar…” Torah

‘Despite not being recognized as such per se, nevertheless human sacrifice is alive and well, kicking and screaming in fact–no pun intended–more so now than at any other time in human history.’ A seminal piece by Mark Glenn 

Israel’s ‘Operation Protective Edge’–Barbaric human sacrifice taking place in Gaza’s real-life Apocalypto

Despite the truly horrifying nature of the theme covered in Mel Gibson’s 2006 blockbuster film Apocalypto–namely the manner by which innocent, defenseless people are hunted down, captured and later used as human sacrifices in appeasing the Mayan god Kukulkan , nevertheless what made the film’s bloody theme and presentation sufferable was the (mistaken) notion that it was a thing of the past and not of the present…

‘Indeed,’ so the prevailing wisdom goes…‘we’re waaaay past that…old hat…yesteryear…passe’…water under the bridge and over the dam…’

The problem with this assessment of course is that it’s as disconnected from reality as the notion that the earth is flat or that babies arrive from heaven via some delivery service known as Stork Express. Despite not being recognized as such per se, nevertheless human sacrifice is alive and well, kicking and screaming in fact–no pun intended–moreso now than at any other time in human history.

And not just the practice itself, but the reasons for doing so as well. Now–as then–it involves primitive peoples–barely-humanoid in many respects–who’ve worked out a business arrangement with some bad-tempered deity whereby ripping to pieces innocent people results in rivers of good fortune flowing in their direction, again, no pun intended…In short time, as the affair becomes ritualistic, ceremonialized and then institutionalized, it gains ‘official’ status when priests, prophets and princes participate, at which point the gory business of Murder, Inc becomes as much a national pastime as feeding people to lions was to ancient Rome.

Indeed, as dramatized in Apocalypto, the ritual was not some ‘private matter’ simply between the victim, victimizer and the god who demanded the blood sacrifice. Rather, it was an open, public event, the beating heart of the metropolis in fact, complete with gawkers, watchers, onlookers and ‘true believers’ who cheered madly as hearts were cut out and heads chopped off.

The only difference between then and now is that today’s human sacrifice is sexier and sanitized, helped along of course with technology making it all seem more like an episode of Star Wars rather than a scene out of Apocalypto. Instead of barely-clad, bone-in-nose, unwashed warriors running barefoot through the jungle chasing some terrified 2-legged creature scheduled to be the main course at a dinner honoring the Mayan god Kukulkan, we have technicians dressed in the respectable clothing of military uniforms, sitting behind computer screens, lattes in one hand while in the other is a joystick attached to a drone that is flown into 3rd-world locales where women and children endure not just having their hearts cut out, but their entire bodies ripped to shreds via high-yield explosive warheads.

And while it is true that many of the ‘enlightened’ countries of the West such as America, Great Britain and others who worship at the altar of money, power and empire and who therefore engage in this modern-day form of human sacrifice known as serial warfare in appeasing these dark gods, there is one country in particular whose involvement in the grisly, gory business of human sacrifice operates on a very different, personal, primal, and primitive level, and that country of course is Israel.

Whereas the aforementioned countries deal in death not necessarily for death’s sake but rather as an unavoidable consequence of attaining the blessings that the aforementioned gods of money and power bring, when it comes to Israel however, the shedding of blood–innocent, defenseless blood–holds particular ‘sentimental’ significance. More personal than just business, when it comes to  the trappings, teachings and traditions of Judaism, blood is as intrinsic to its identity as bread and wine are within some Christian ceremonies.  It is, after all, that ‘old time religion’ that functions as the beating heart of the Jewish state and which sustains and maintains who it is, what it is, what it does, and how it lives.

The notion that Israel, again, THE JEWISH STATE, as her worshippers insist upon her being characterized, would engage in the business of ritualistic human sacrifice should come as no surprise to anyone who understands the ‘beating heart’ of what keeps her alive, meaning Judaism. Human sacrifice, i.e. murdering innocent human beings in order to appease the demands of some ‘higher’ power, is a theme introduced within literally the first chapters of the very first book of the Jewish Torah–the book of Genesis to be exact–where a penniless nomad named Abraham–the ‘Founding Father’ of the Jewish state as the world has been told time and again–has got it in his head to slit the throat of his own son Isaac and burn his young son’s body on a pile of stones in pleasing and appeasing the Jewish god Yahweh.

Luckily for Isaac, as the story goes, the voices in Abraham’s head telling him to engage in the very same kind of brutal black Mass depicted in Apocalypto were drowned out by competing voices telling him not to murder his son, but rather to sacrifice a nearby ram whose horns had been caught in a briar and who could not escape to save its life.

The story–whether historically true or not, is immaterial to the fact that in the minds of those whose identity is wrapped up in Israel, Judaism, Zionism, etc, a pattern and a paradigm have been set through this legend–That killing innocent, defenseless creatures that can neither escape nor fight back is the manner by which the Jewish god is appeased and satiated…

Using this–the slaughter and incineration of a ram–as the standard then, from there the Judaic practice of killing docile,  defenseless creatures for the purpose of quelling and containing the anger of Yahweh, the Judaic god, isn’t just institutionalized, but becomes the institution itself. Whether it is for atonement of sins,  giving thanks or whatever the mood of the occasion happens to be at that moment, the slaughter of living creatures becomes THE method of connecting with and ‘getting right’ with ‘the god of Israel’ (a term publically used many times by Jewish terrorists ranging from Menachem Begin to Netanyahu) as explained numerous times in the books of Leviticus, Deuteronomy, Numbers and others found in the Torah. Specifically, as the ritual dictates, by laying hands on the head of the animal to be killed, the sins of the people of Israel are transferred onto the animal, and upon its brutal slaughter, the sins are wiped away and Yahweh is appeased, to wit–

‘The priest is to place his hand on the head of the sin offering and slaughter it…Then the priest is to take some of the blood with his finger and put it on the horns of the altar and pour out the rest of the blood at the base of the altar…They shall remove all the fat and the priest shall then burn the bull, ram, or goat on the altar as an aroma pleasing to the Lord, and in this way the priest will make atonement for the people of Israel, and their sins will be forgiven…’

Paired almost simultaneously with the ritualistic practice of animal slaughter as the centerpiece of Judaic worship come the various decrees from Yahweh’s mouth to Israel’s ear that he–the angry, jealous, vengeful god who has chosen this small, seemingly insignificant tribe of ne’er do wells to someday run the world–is no longer satiated with only the slaughter of defenseless animals. Now, having developed a more ‘sophisticated’ sacrificial appetite, he demands that defenseless men, women and children must suffer the same fate as well, specifically as laid out within several passages of the Jewish Torah to wit–

‘When the LORD your God brings you into the land you are to possess and casts out the many peoples living there, you shall then slaughter them all and utterly destroy them…You shall save nothing alive that breathes…You shall make no agreements with them nor show them any mercy…You shall destroy their altars, break down their images, cut down their groves and burn their graven images with fire. For you are a holy people unto the LORD thy God and He has chosen you to be a special people above all others upon the face of the earth…’

And there begins a wedding made in hell, where ritualistic, religiously-driven animal slaughter is paired with war, genocide, invasion and conquest.

Given the inherently supremacist foundation of Judaic thought (‘God’s chosen people’, ‘light unto the world,’ etc) paired with its inherently anti-Gentile disposition, it was just a matter of time then before the two ideas become merged into one–the equating of Gentiles as animals who were fit for nothing but either enslavement or ritual slaughter, and the likely catalyst for this merger was the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem in 70 A.D. by the Romans, resulting in the cessation of the Judaic practice of sacrificial  slaughter of livestock for attaining atonement from the Judaic god.

A substitution had to be found therefore if the Judaic community were to maintain any sense of religious/social cohesiveness…

The fact that Gentiles are referred to disparagingly amongst Jews as ‘Goy’ or ‘Goyim’–the Hebrew equivalent of the word ‘livestock’ or ‘cattle’–is one indication that this association between non-Jews and livestock (rams, goats, sheep, etc) used for ritualistic sacrifice has been a fait accompli now for some time. As Israel sinks deeper and deeper into her Judaism and her ‘Jewishness’, and the more powerful that the Jewish community becomes, therefore the more ‘comfortable’ certain political and religious leaders become in voicing ideas that before had to be kept hidden from the Gentile world for the sake of ‘operational security’. Of the various statements made in recent history, few compare in revealing this mindset than that made by Israel’s former Chief Sephardic Rabbi Ovadiah Yusef who stated to wit–

‘Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world, only to serve the People of Israel…Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi and eat…With gentiles, it will be like any person: They need to die, but God will give them longevity. Why? Imagine that one’s donkey would die, they’d lose their money. This is his servant. That’s why he gets a long life, to work well for this Jew…’

The reaction on the part of the more ‘cautious’ elements within organized Jewish circles, from the ADL to World Jewish Congress et al was predictable in its utter duplicity, and unfortunately, swallowed whole hog by the Gentile community. One by one, powerful Jewish groups and those who lead them lined up to denounce the Rabbi’s statement despite knowing full well that it reflected the essence of Judaism and that it forms the foundation of Zionist thinking not only in Israel, but around the world. Sadly, the Gentiles, not yet comprehending the inherently deceptive nature of Judaic linguistics and theatrics, believed it, much to their own detriment.

But more effective in revealing the kinds of genocidal tendencies that have come to plague the Judaic mind than the various statements from Jewish leaders–religious and political–are the actions of Israel itself. Whereas the various statements attributed to individuals such as Ovadia Yusef and others can be compared to the distant howling of wolves announcing their impending arrival, it is the ensuing slaughter and carnage that best reveals the nature of the beast within.

That the present Holocaust in Gaza is in effect an exercise in ritualized Jewish mass murder and human sacrifice cannot be disputed by any rational human being. The deliberate targeting of civilians, the murder of women and children as if the entire exercise were nothing more than shooting fish in a barrel cannot be equated with any kind of protective or preventive military operation on the part of a stable, sane nation state. Operation ‘Defensive Edge’–like all its previous massacres–Jenin, Cast Lead, etc, etc, etc, is the modern day equivalent of the very same ritual sacrifice institutionalized within the pages of the Torah and the same human sacrifice depicted within Apocalypto and for the same reasons–Israel, a nation whose foundation is rooted in religious strains that demand the blood of innocent, defenseless animals who cannot escape, the exact situation as pertains to the people of Gaza today. It is their blood, the Palestinians of Gaza and elsewhere–warm, wet, sticky–that acts as the glue holding together the nation of mentally ill, religious, racist nutcases known as Israel.

Indeed, as we read the words of the high priest in Apocalypto as he is about to plunge the knife into the chest of his captive victim, they might as well be the words of Benjamin Netanyahu or any of those within his circles–

‘We are a people of destiny…destined to be the masters of all time, destined to be nearest to the gods…’ 

‘Great Kulkulkan, whose fury could scourge the earth to oblivion, let us appease you with this sacrifice…to exalt you in your glory and make our people prosper…’

And, as in Apocalypto, when the citizens of the Mayan superstate roared with approval as the beating heart of the victim was cut out and the head chopped off, so too do we hear the roar of Jewry worldwide as the innocent victims of Gaza are ceremonially murdered on the high altar of Judaic human sacrifice. Israeli citizens gather at the border with food, drinks and other celebratory supplies, snapping pics of the carnage in celebrating Gentile slaughter and in worshipping the Judaic version of the Mayan god Kukulkan.

Not that anyone should be particularly surprised or shocked at this, since Jews worldwide have gathered together in much the same way to celebrate past instances of Gentile mass murder in religious ‘Holy Days’ such as Passover, Purim, Hannakuh and others.

Where the difference lies however between the Mayan superstate and today’s version of it–Israel–is that the Mayans did not have nuclear weapons with which to burn down the entire world in one giant human sacrifice. Let all hope and pray that the rest of the Gentile world–and particularly those with the military resources to do it–recognize that indeed this is what is in store for mankind if the beast depicted within both the storyline of Apocalypto and within the pages of the final book of the Christian New Testament–The Apocalypse–is not destroyed, for if not, as Jesus Christ Himself predicted, ‘no flesh would survive’.

Zionist Scientist Exposes “Iron Dome” Hoax


Iron Dome firing an interceptor missle

Iron Dome firing an interceptor missile

An Israeli scientist and award-winning security expert has called the Iron Dome missile defence system “the biggest hoax the world has seen”, Addustour news website has reported.According to Dr Motty Scheffer,

“Today, there is no missile which can intercept other missiles or rocket-propelled grenades, and the Iron Dome is a light audio system which blocks Israeli public opinion and, of course, itself. In fact, all the explosions that we have seen in the atmosphere are self-destruction. The Iron Dome did not launch  any  rocket that could intercept at least one missile fired from Gaza.”

Sheffer added that the concept of open areas is a myth created to amplify the Iron Dome’s ability as a missile interceptor. He made an indirect accusation against the dome’s operating staff of misleading the public:

“The missiles which were intercepted by the Iron Dome and did  not reach the ground are hypothetical missiles produced and destroyed in the Dome’s computer control room; as of this moment, nobody has seen an intercepted missile fall to the ground.”

The scientist made his comments after the challenge raised by Hamas’s military wing, the Izzaddin Al-Qassam Brigades on Saturday, which fired J80 missiles at Tel Aviv and defied the Iron Dome and its experts to intercept them. The J80s have been fitted with a jamming system to get through Israel’s missile defences.

He claimed that the parts that we are shown on the ground belong to the Iron Dome itself.

“The  Iron Dome is a  plot created by  interest groups who are afraid of peace, including the security industry and Prime Minister Benjamin Netan-yahu.”

From Veterans Today Senior Editor, Gordon Duff dated July 13, 2014:


As with the failures of the US built Patriot missile defense system during the first Gulf War, the “Iron Dome” is all public relations, a myth with no substance.

Israel is defended by one or more US Navy AEGIS ships stationed in the Mediterranean. This is the real “Iron Yamuka.” The radar systems of Israel’s homegrown  adjunct are  primitive, their boosters inadequate and their own missile  defense has been accused, perhaps rightly so, of doing more damage than Hamas.

Israeli air defense systems have destroyed buildings and killed Jews with missiles suffering booster failure and plunging into populated areas. Anyone threatening to report this inside Israel has a life expectancy of hours.
The idea that Hamas rockets are being intercepted successfully is almost funny. In order to simulate an interception, it would be necessary to place a slow flying drone in the path of an Israeli rocket and hope the two accidentally collided. If it was a “miss,” you could always self-destruct the drone and lie about it.

This has been done, in fact, everyone does it. The Reagan administration, during the development of the Star Wars or SDI (Strategic Defense Initiative) program was caught doing this repeatedly. Israel isn’t the only country that lies.

Arundhati Roy: The Palestinian Calamity

by Moti Nissani


The masters of chaos and genocide are busy everywhere—in SWAT-land’s prisons and airports, the so-called drug war in Mexico and Colombia, the fracking fields of Canada, the permanently-poisoned streets of Fukushima, the rising oceans, the thawing permafrost of Siberia, the Indian countryside, the contrived sectarian massacres of Iraq. Killing us slowly is not nearly enough for these psychopaths, for they are now confronting Russia and China with a stark choice: slavery or nuclear cataclysm.

For many years, Arundhati Roy has been busy unmasking these powerful villains. Watching, brokenheartedly, the events in Gaza, I wished to confirm my interpretation with hers. Although she wrote the following lines on the first anniversary of 9/11, they are even more relevant today than they were then:

September 11 has a tragic resonance in the Middle East, too. On September 11, 1922, ignoring Arab outrage, the British government proclaimed a mandate in Palestine, a follow-up to the 1917 Balfour declaration, which imperial Britain issued, with its army massed outside the gates of the city of Gaza. The Balfour declaration promised European Zionists a national home for Jewish people. Two years after the declaration, Lord Balfour, the British foreign secretary said:

 ‘In Palestine we do not propose to go through the form of  consulting the wishes of the present inhabitants of the country. Zionism, be it right or wrong,  good or bad, is rooted in age-old traditions, in present needs, in future hopes of far profounder import than the desires or prejudices of the 700,000 Arabs who now inhabit this ancient land’.

How carelessly imperial power decreed whose needs were profound and whose were not. How carelessly it vivisected ancient civilizations. Palestine and Kashmir are imperial Britain’s festering, blood-drenched gifts to the modern world. Both are fault-lines in the raging international conflicts of today.

In 1937 Winston Churchill said of the Palestinians:

‘I do not agree that the dog in a manger has the final right to the manger even though he may have lain there for a very long time. I do not admit that right. I do not admit for instance that a great wrong has been done to the red Indians of America or the black people of Australia. I do not admit that a wrong has been done to these people by the fact that a stronger race, a higher grade race, a more worldly wise race to put it that way, has come in and taken their place’.

That set the trend for the Israeli state’s attitude towards Palestinians. In 1969, Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir said:

 ‘Palestinians do not exist’. Her successor, Prime Minister Levi Eshkol, said: ‘What are Palestinians? When I came here [to Palestine] there were 250,000 non-Jews, mainly Arabs and Bedouins. It was desert, more than underdeveloped. Nothing’. Prime Minister Menachem Begin called Palestinians ‘two-legged beasts’. Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir called them ‘grasshoppers’ who could be crushed. This is the language of heads of state, not the words of ordinary people.

In 1947 the UN formally partitioned Palestine and allotted 55% of Palestine’s land to the Zionists. Within a year they had captured 78%. On May 14, 1948, the state of Israel was declared. Minutes after the declaration, the US recognized Israel. The West Bank was annexed by Jordan. The Gaza strip came under Egyptian military control. Formally, Palestine ceased to exist except in the minds and hearts of the hundreds of thousands of Palestinian people who became refugees.

In the summer of 1967, Israel occupied the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Settlers were offered state subsidies and development aid to move into the occupied territories. Almost every day more Palestinian families are forced off their lands and driven into refugee camps. Palestinians who continue to live in Israel do not have the same rights as Israelis and live as second-class citizens in their former homeland.

Over the decades there have been uprisings, wars, intifadas. Tens of thousands have lost their lives. Accords and treaties have been signed, ceasefires declared and violated. But the bloodshed doesn’t end. Palestine still remains illegally occupied. Its people live in inhuman conditions, in virtual Bantustans, where they are subjected to collective punishments, 24-hour curfews, where they are humiliated and brutalised on a daily basis. They never know when their homes will be demolished, when their children will be shot, when their precious trees will be cut, when their roads will be closed, when they will be allowed to walk down to the market to buy food and medicine. And when they will not.

They live with no semblance of dignity. With not much hope in sight. They have no control over their lands, their security, their movement, their communication, their water supply. So when accords are signed and words like ‘autonomy’ and even ‘statehood’ are bandied about, it’s always worth asking: What sort of autonomy? What sort of state? What sort of rights will its citizens have? Young Palestinians who cannot contain their anger turn themselves into human bombs and haunt Israel’s streets and public places, blowing themselves up, killing ordinary people, injecting terror into daily life, and eventually hardening both societies’ suspicion and mutual hatred of each other. Each bombing invites merciless reprisals and even more hardship on Palestinian people. But then suicide bombing is an act of individual despair, not a revolutionary tactic. Although Palestinian attacks strike terror into Israeli civilians, they provide the perfect cover for the Israeli government’s daily incursions into Palestinian territory, the perfect excuse for old-fashioned, 19th century colonialism, dressed up as a new-fashioned, 21st century ‘war’.

Israel’s staunchest political and military ally is and always has been the US government. The US government has blocked,along with Israel, almost every UN resolution that sought a peaceful, equitable solution to the conflict. It has supported almost every war that Israel has fought. When  Israel attacks Palestine, it is American missiles that smash through Palestinian homes. And every year Israel receives several billion dollars from the US.

What lessons should we draw from this tragic conflict? Is it really impossible for Jewish people who suffered so cruelly themselves — more cruelly perhaps than any other people in history — to understand the vulnerability and the yearning of those whom they have displaced? Does extreme suffering always kindle cruelty? What hope does this leave the human race with? What will happen to the Palestinian people in the event of a victory? When a nation without a state eventually proclaims a state, what kind of state will it be? What horrors will be perpetrated under its flag? Is it a separate state that we should be fighting for, or the rights to a life of liberty and dignity for everyone regardless of their ethnicity or religion?

Palestine was once a secular bulwark in the Middle East. But now the weak, undemocratic, by all accounts corrupt but avowedly non-sectarian PLO, is losing ground to Hamas, which espouses an overtly sectarian ideology and fights in the name of Islam. To quote from their manifesto: ‘We will be its soldiers, and the firewood of its fire, which will burn the enemies’.

The world is called upon to condemn suicide bombers. But can we ignore the long road they have journeyed on before they arrived at this destination? September 11, 1922 to September 11, 2002 — 80 years is a long long time to have been waging war. Is there some advice the world can give the people of Palestine? Some scrap of hope we can hold out? Should they just settle for the crumbs that are thrown their way and behave like the grasshoppers or two-legged beasts they’ve been described as? Should they just take Golda Meir’s suggestion and make a real effort to not exist?

What More Horrors Are In Store for Gaza?



A wish-list for the brave Palestinians

by Stuart Littlewood

I wonder what Hamas and Israeli leaders are thinking as they survey the devastation in Gaza and review the death-toll and casualty figures?

Or course, neither has to live among the ruins and clamber over the devastation. Neither has the stench of death in his nostrils, nor the dust of destruction. Neither will have to pick up the tab… that’s left to hard-pressed taxpayers in Britain and elsewhere who, unwillingly, subsidise this recurring lunacy.

Netanyahu goes nowhere near Gaza so avoids witnessing the horrors inflicted by Israeli troops on his demented orders.

Khaled Meshal, boss of the Hamas Political Bureau, is an absentee leader now living in Qatar, having blotted his copybook with the Syrians. What he actually does with his time is a mystery. If only he’d get around re-writing the dreadful Hamas Charter and produce a document more fitting for the 21st century and his movement’s aspirations, he would save his people a lot of anguish.

The day-to-day running of Gaza meanwhile is left to individuals such as Ismail Haniyeh (prime minister) and Mahmoud Al-Zahar. How these two – and the rest of their team – have managed to cope thoughout the cruel siege and the many assaults and crises since their election in 2006 is almost beyond comprehension.

Haniyeh famously said a few months ago: “Out of the ruins, we shall rock Tel Aviv.” Born and raised in a Gaza refugee camp this ex-footballer graduated from the Islamic University. Following the first Intifada he was detained, did time in Israeli prisons and was then deported to Lebanon. Returning to Gaza in 1993 he was appointed Dean of the Islamic University and became assistant to Sheik Yassin, the spiritual leader of Hamas.

Mahmoud al-Zahar is another remarkable character. A surgeon by trade (Masters degree in general surgery at Ain Shams Univerity, Cairo), he is a co-founder of Hamas and regarded as a ‘hardliner’, whatever that means in the context of Gaza’s long suffering. His personal losses in the struggle, in terms of close family members annihilated and homes destroyed, are huge.

As these two pick their way through the smoking rubble, and survey the broken and shredded bodies of the children, what goes through their minds? Maybe they’re thinking how pathetic Western Christendom is for not only letting such evil triumph in the Holy Land — of all places — but actually sponsoring it. The richly robed pointy-hatted archbishops have been very, very quiet in the face of indescribable evil. Here in Britain senior bishops have 26 seats in the House of Lords and they’ve kept their heads well below the parapet. Where is that drip Welby on this?

Maybe Haniyeh and al-Zahar are also thinking what a gutless shambles the Arab League is for not intervening.

So where do they find the courage to carry on in those few square miles of Palestinian wreckage called Gaza? Their extraordinary faith of course, a huge well of strength which we in the West will never quite understand.

And what of Obama and Kerry and Cameron? They sponsor and stand four-square behind the berserk monster that did all this, proclaiming shared values, common interests, undying admiration and unwavering support… and deflecting criticism by pronouncing justification on absurd grounds of self-defence against its terrorised and traumatised victim.

Wishful thinking

The enormity of it – the barbarity and terrible sacrifice of the last three weeks — is surely unprecedented in modern times, and the cowardice of the international community unforgivable. Seekers of justice cannot allow it to count for nothing. What are the scenarios we might wish for to bring about change?

  • A joint expedition among nations to run the blockade and land supplies on Gaza’s beach. It would likely provoke a huge international ‘incident’ which, it can be argued, is exactly what’s needed if progress is to be made? It should not be a private undertaking, however.
  • The BDS movement to dramatically step up its worldwide campaign and widen targeting to include not only corporates but key individuals, especially in public life, who promote and/or profit from the occupation of Palestine? And those who defend Israel and its murder machine named and shamed?
  • In the UK the pro-Israel lobby to be neutralised, dismantled or at least driven to the sidelines, probably by a campaign of naming and shaming? Ditto the US?
  • The Palestinian Authority keels over and dies of shame, taking its unwanted baggage with it? A new authority emerges from the shadows which isn’t interested in doing Israel’s security dirty work or acting as America’s dogsbody?
  • The PLO and new PA to use all channels open to them to bring  Israel’s crimes to the International Criminal Court and urge enforcement of international law? PressTV ran a report two days ago that Palestinian officials had actually filed a complaint in the ICC through a Paris-based lawyer covering war crimes committed by the Israeli military in Gaza over the last two months. I am still waiting for confirmation and further information from the PLO.
  • Hamas claims the right of inclusion by re-stating its call for a fully sovereign Palestinian state on pre-1967 borders with Jerusalem as capital, and refugees’ right to return, a position that’s perfectly in tune with UN resolutions and international law? Hamas’s political wing is not listed as a terrorist organisation in the UK so there should be no barrier to discussion.
  • Many more Jews worldwide reject the so-called Jewish State and the implication that the Israeli regime acts in the name of Judaism? For them the classic Edmund Burke moment has arrived: “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing”.
  • The EU finally suspends Israel’s trade privileges under the EU-Israel Association Agreement? To enjoy those privileges Israel promised to show “respect for human rights and democratic principles” as set out in Article 2. The Agreement also required respect for self-determination of peoples and fundamental freedoms for all. Israel hasn’t delivered. Its contempt for such basic principles can surely no longer be tolerated.
  • The US suddenly finds the backbone to enforce its own laws? The Arms Export Control Act stipulates that US-supplied weapons can only be used for “legitimate self-defense.” The US Foreign Assistance Act prohibits military assistance to any country “which engages in a consistent pattern of gross violations of internationally recognized human rights.” And the Proxmire Amendment bans military assistance to any government that, like Israel, refuses to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty or prevents inspection of its nuclear facilities.

Wishful thoughts indeed. But some could be ‘runners’. Others are waiting to be mentioned.
