Guest Column: Book Review: From Yahweh to Zion: 1

From Laurent Guyenot’s From Yahweh to Zion
Chaper 1: The Birth of Israel

Since I am going to be occupied for the next couple of months with writing a couple of urgent books—one on the Hendrickson Discovery:American Gumption-Catharsis and one on First Principles’ grand juries: The Accountability Project—I have decided to use most of my Guest Columns and my Brian’s Columns during that time to basically plug and write an extended review for a watershed book… on perhaps the most important subject we can all learn more about: Jewishness and Israel. I say this mainly because of the demonstrable and ongoing primeval horrors that country has unleashed upon the people of Palestine, and the large-scale insidious crimes the sovereignist-Jew collective-psychosis has inflicted on all the countries and peoples of the world though-out history, in particular, with the advent of modern Zionism and ‘the Jewish State’ in the 20th century… leading to the death knell for America and her First Principles.

As with any deep collective-mind pathology, we cannot effect a healing (psychological independence, self-responsibilty, individual virtue, humanity) without an understanding. Mr. Guyenot has performed a dispassionate, scholarly service for which we—Jews AND non-Jews—will all be eternally grateful.

Starting off as a delusional general in a military coup, roughly 8 1/2 centuries BCE.

The Birth of Israel

“If you faithfully obey the voice of Yahweh your God, by keeping and observing all his commandments, which I am laying down for you today, Yahweh your God will raise you higher than every other nation in the world.” Deuteronomy 28:1

It is believed that a general by the name of Jehu first promoted the cult of his god Yahweh in the kingdom of Israel, after seizing the throne in 842 BCE. Yahweh Sabaoth (Yahweh of armies) seems to be the archaic name of this military god, which was carried in battle in a mobile ark (1 Samuel 4:4). He resembled Assur, the national and military god of the Assyrians, presented in Assyrian chronicles as the true king of the eponymous city-state, with the human ruler being only the vicegerent. Assur is a warrior god, who grants victory to his people and destroys the gods (i.e., temples and shrines) of conquered peoples. This is also, as we shall see, the dominant feature of Yahweh.

Brian’s Column: Indian vis a vis Palestinian

Who got (or gets) the deal more rotten?
By Brian R. Wright

Specifically, comparing the plight of the American Indian rousted by European-Americans of the 19th century and the Palestinian peoples ravaged by Zionist Israel of the 20th… into the 21st. These reflections, and a definitive table of results, stem from my observation—after watching an old 1975 documentary (I Will Fight No More Forever) about how the Nez Perce were finally rounded up after being driven off their lands by the cavalry in abro-gation of treaty in 1877—that this was exactly like what the Israelis are doing/have done to the Palestinians in modern times. Except of course that the Palestinians weren’t afforded any kind of treaty to be broken.

I conveyed my thoughts to a small email group that includes the two individuals pictured above, who are also 911 truther friends and associates of mine. [In this ten-member email group resides the well-known, shall I call him, Israeli apostate, international musician and writer Gilad Atzmon.] Anyway, the man on the left above, Mr. Henry Herskovitz, took exception to my characterization of equivalence between ‘what we did/do to the Indians’ and what the Israelites have been doing to the Palestinians for nearly 60 years. In fact, he produced a table of 11 items he had thought of combined with 20 others an Iraqi friend of his contributed.

Candidly, though I protested some that I was talking about the essence of the act of land expropriation and cultural destruction, I was blown away by the comparison. I really don’t think most Americans have the slightest idea how much worse the Israelis have treated and are treating the Palestinians than the whites treated the Indians (as horrifically as they were treated)—and the list doesn’t even include the perpetual Gaza massacre, the West Bank occupation, the Wall, unrelenting arbitrary detention and torture of Palestinians and Arabs, etc.

Guest Column: Speak Ill of Israel, go to Jail

International campaign is criminalizing criticism of Israel as ‘antisemitism’
By Alison Weir (of If Americans Knew) [original with links here]

As the world has witnessed the oppression and ethnic cleansing of Palestinians, many people have risen in protest. In response, the Israeli government and certain of its advocates have conducted a campaign to crack down on this activism, running roughshod over civil liberties (and the English language) in the process.

The mechanism of this crackdown is the redefinition of “antisemitism”[1] to include criticism of Israel, and the insertion of this definition into the bodies of law of various countries.

Where most people would consider “antisemitism” to mean bigotry against Jewish people (and rightly consider it abhorrent), for two decades a campaign has been underway to replace that definition with an Israel-centric definition. That definition can then be used to block speech and activism in support of Palestinian human rights as “hate.” Various groups are applying this definition in law enforcement evaluations of possible crimes.

Proponents of this Israel-centric definition have promoted it step by step in various arenas, from the U.S. State Department and European governments to local governments around the U.S. and universities.

While this effort has taken place over the last two decades, it is snowballing rapidly at this time. The definition is increasingly being used to curtail free speech and academic freedom, as well as political activism. Continue reading

Book Review: Against Our Better Judgment

How the US was used to create Israel
by Alison Weir

JugdmentThis marvelous little book came my way via a major Detroit-area 9/11 truth activist, Dick Kennedy, who has also kept me up to speed on other serious research by reputable, established journalists and writers on Israel’s role in the global pathocracy. [Specifically, Dick referred me to the courageous book Solving 9/11: The deception that changed the world, by Christopher Bollyn.] From Bollyn and several other sources, no doubt exists whatsoever that top Israeli military and intelligence officials participated in the early planning, detailed preparations, and execution of the 9/11 attacks—including the coverup. Benjamin Netanyahu, current premier of Israel, even said it was a good thing for Israel that the 911 attacks occurred. (!)

Bollyn and now Ms. Weir provide abundant ammunition to show why good ol’ Ben would say such a thing: Israel does benefit from such acts of terrorism because the Zionist Israeli state—like its apparent US subordinate today—is a terrorist syndicate, and has been from the gitgo. It goes back to the beginnings of Zionism in the latter half of the 19th century, which had a central goal of establishing a Jewish state somewhere in the world. Led by a European journalist named Theodor Herzl, the movement coalesced in the First Zionist Congress, in Basel, Switzerland in 1897, and the World Zionist Organization.

Several other locations for the geographic artifice were considered—Argentina, Uganda, Cyprus, even Galveston Island in Texas—but the WZO eventually decided on Palestine… “even though Palestine was already inhabited by a population that was 93-96% non-Jewish.” It was recognized by early Zionists that the United States would be a critical enabler of their objectives. At the advent of the 20th century the large majority of Jewish Americans were not Zionists, and many vigorously opposed Zionism for, among other reasons,  being “a foreign, un-American, racist, and separatist phenomenon.” Continue reading

Movie Review: Losing the Liberty (June 8, 1967)

Two films on the Israeli unprovoked, intentional attack on the USS Liberty

Loss LibertyThe 50th anniversary of the assault on the USS Liberty is coming up June 8th of this year. These two videos are important building blocks toward the understanding of what happened… and toward the steps all good Americans need to take now in defense of our own country… and its Liberty.

Thank you so much Dick Kennedy for sending me these DVDs; I’m simply overwhelmed by the treachery and savagery of high officials of both governments, Israeli and American, serving without question the imperial agenda of Zionist Israel at this most critical juncture of history. It’s stunningly clear this was a false flag attack with unmarked planes and gunboats, intended to be blamed on the Arabs, and to sink the ship and kill everyone on board so no one would be available to contest the story. Following which the US could rightly enter the conflict on the side of Israel.

The objective was also to eliminate surveillance of war crimes—the sadistic, perfunctory execution of several hundred Egyptian POWs from the Six-Day War, the invasion and conquest of the Golan Heights, and who knows what else. Israel had planned the ‘War’ years in advance, thus very likely what they were going to do with any prisoners. The standard story that Israel was facing annihilation from massing Arab forces appears to be complete BS… according to sources quoting a large number of Israelis who were in a position to know: Continue reading

Guest Column: Roots of the US-Israel Relationship

Israel and America: The Special Relationship that Isn’t
By Dr. Alan Sabrosky

israel_sabroskyDr. Sabrosky, a US Marine and former director of the US Army War College, is one of the foremost analysts I’ve found on the Web who starkly states his conviction, with key evidence, that top Israeli-Zionist officials were the prime movers and architects of the 9/11 attacks. The following excerpt from Sabrosky’s 2013 column provides background over the past several decades of how Zionism and Israel became dominant political entities in—indeed, quasicolonial masters of—America… with very few Americans realizing it. — bw

Two outstanding, indispensable, and timely reference books on this subject:

Special Disclaimer Regarding ‘Antisemitism’

Antisemitism has come to mean anti-Jewishness. It is important to note that neither Dr. Sabrosky (who has Jewish ancestors), nor I, nor any of the millions of individuals (many of them Jews) who question or deplore actions of the state of Israel or political Zionism, that led to Israel’s creation, are anti-Jewish… any more than those of us who disapprove of the KKK are anti-Christian. — bw

Special Relationship

Whenever Israel’s supporters today speak of a “special relationship” with the US that is supposedly graven in stone, it is useful to remember that something very different existed when Israel came into existence in 1948 on the gutted carcass of Palestine. The US recognized Israel, but that was about it. Hollywood was (and remains) largely a Jewish preserve, but their level of influence elsewhere—in the government, the media and academia—was limited.

Prominent American Jews felt no obligation to endorse Israel or Israeli leaders, no matter what happened. Dozens (including Albert Einstein) signed a letter published in the New York Times in 1948 protesting the arrival of Menachem Begin and condemning his actions. And the general American public was largely indifferent to what happened in the Middle East. Continue reading

Guest Column: US Foreign Policy, Palestine-Israel, and BDS

Platform statement by Jill Stein, Green Party candidate 2016

Green_PartyEditor’s Note: I’m pretty sure the vaunted Libertarian Party platform takes no such stand for common-sense decency in foreign and military policy—certainly not to the extent of implicating Israel for “war crimes and massive human rights violations,” and supporting the BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) movement. [BDS seeks to end Israel’s regime of occupation, settler-colonialism and apartheid over the Palestinian people.]

The Greens are holding their national convention in Houston next weekend (August 4-7), and the way I read the tea leaves, they will be on the ballot in 24-30 states. By contrast, I expect the Libertarian Party, currently at 36 states, will achieve ballot status in very close to 50 states. Basically, even though the LP has ‘shot itself in the foot’ in many ways insofar as taking the ethical high road of the nonaggression principle, I’m still leaning toward the LP’s Johnson-Weld ticket… though weakly, esp. every time I hear William Weld open his mouth.

Anyway, Here Goes, I Only Wish an LP Had Written Something Similar

The Jill Stein campaign calls for ending support for governments committing war crimes and massive human rights violations, including Israel and Saudi Arabia.

It supports the BDS movement as a peaceful, nonviolent set of actions organized by civil society across the world aimed to end Israeli apartheid, occupation, war crimes, and systematic human rights abuses. Continue reading
