The 2012 Israeli/Gaza Conflict
There is still conflict in the Middle East. Liars and extremists may howl at the moon, but the truth is superior to imperialism and militarism. The enemy may act like they are the toughest beings of all creation, but they are not. Good is superior to evil. The reactionaries can shake the table all they want, but the Creator can inspire human beings to move the world in a more righteous, positive direction. I will always keep it 100. This is a passionate issue, but I will show the truth in love. Israel and Hamas were battling against each other. Now, they are trying to resolve their issues. On November 14, Hamas military commander Ahmed Jabri was murdered by an Israeli missile attack. These events feel very similar to the Hamas and Israel battles a few years ago. Back in 2006, the events were part of the Israeli/Lebanon conflict. It is ironic since a few hours before the attack; Hamas received the draft proposal of a permanent truce agreement with Israel. This has been reported by Haaretz on November 15, 2012. The draft wanted mechanism for maintaining a cease fire in the case of a flare up between Israel and factions in the Gaza Strip. After the assassination of Ahmed Jabari, there was the bombing campaign under Operation Pillar of Cloud.
These military strikes against Gaza have been very controversial. F-16 fighter planes, Apache helicopters, and unmanned drones were deployed. Israeli naval forces deployed along the Gaza shoreline were involved in extensive shelling of civilian targets. Also, any innocent deaths (whether Israelis or Palestinians) ought to be sympathized with. The Israeli defense minister Ehud Barak admitted that there is a scenario of military escalation. The Israelis blame Palestine for acts of aggression, while the Palestinians & Hamas blame Israel. Later, there has been a firing of dozens of rockets by Hamas against Israeli. Any military scholar knows that Hamas will retaliate and Israeli war planners know this. The Israeli civilian casualties are being used to justify military escalation on humanitarian grounds. Sounds familiar? The big picture is that these occurrences involve a clear act of provocation. The deaths of Israeli civilians (as foreseen by IDF military planners) are being used to gain support among the Israeli public. The victims of occupation and military shells are being collectively blamed by the Western media for the Israeli atrocities. Hamas isn't perfect, but both sides making a progressive peace accords is better than apartheid. Israel once contemplated a ground war. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would love for Mitt Romney to be President, but he is using rocket attacks as a means to show to the world that he wants to continue forth with his agenda irrespective of who won the 2012 election. I don't agree with civilian deaths on either side. Deaths of innocent human beings are tragedies and that ought to be realized. Many people view Israeli actions to be warranted and other feel that the Israeli actions are disproportionate. The truth is that a truce between Hamas and Israeli could have come, but it was temporarily killed by the assassination of Jabari. Israeli peace activist Gershon Baskin, who helped negotiate the release of Gilad Shalit and maintained contacts with Hamas leaders, said the truce agreement included protocols for maintaining a cease-fire in the case of cross-border violence between Israel and Gaza. Baskin told Haaretz that senior officials in Israel knew about the pending truce agreement, but nevertheless approved the assassination; presumably knowing it would terminate the truce and escalate the conflict with Gaza. "I think that they have made a strategic mistake," Baskin said, "which will cost the lives of quite a number of innocent people on both sides." He added that Jabari's assassination "killed the possibility of achieving a truce." The Middle East has been influenced by US/NATO war plans too. NATO approves of the civil war in Syria and they performed war crimes inside of the country of Libya as well. This network supports Operation Pillar of Cloud, so the invasion of Gaza is part of a bigger Western strategic agenda (of trying to pacify people into accepting imperialism). The peace movements among all sides should do their best to resolve the Israel/Palestine conflict in general. Also, an economic system that says that small minority of people should own the majority of the wealth and power in the world is archaic and immoral period. I like that to be known from the rooftops, the valleys, the hills, and the ceilings.
More news is coming about the Israel and Gaza conflict. The cover story made by some in the Western mainstream media is that Israel is completely right and some of them try to minimize the outrage of the deaths of Palestinian civilians. Some in the media feel that Israeli bombs are simply a reaction to Hamas terror or the blame all of this conflict on Hamas' side. Many people like
Mohammed Sulaiman in Gaza said that they are afraid to leave their home since he heard the sound of bombs exploding in the near distance. Nissim Nahoom (an Israeli official in Ashkelon) said that his situation is no different from the Gazans. This is wrong, because Gaza is experiencing more dropped bombs than Israel. Mohammed was interviewed by the Sunni Muslim Isah Sesay (a Sister). Mohammed heard bombs growing louder in sound. The fact is that a Palestinian civilian in Gaza is in far more danger of being killed or injured by one of Israel's precision armaments than an Israeli is by one of the more primitive rockets being launched out of Gaza. Operation Cast Lead was Israel's previous attack on Gaza in the winter of 2008-2009. 3 Israelis were killed by rocket attacks and six soldiers were killed in that fighting. In Gaza, nearly 1,400 Palestinians were killed (at least 1,000 were not involved in hostilities according to the Israeli group B'Tselem). Most of these civilians were killed by so-called precision bombs and missiles. Today, the people in Gaza are stuck in Gaza. They live in one of the most densely populated areas on Earth and it's was attacked in late 2012. Israel denied Gaza a port, it controls its airspace, and the right of its inhabitants to move to other Palestinian territory recognized by the Oslo accords (in the West Bank). Hamas isn't hiding among Palestinian civilians constantly per se. It's that Palestinians civilians are forced to live in a tiny strip of land that is now a war zone. Hamas isn't clean in this affair, but there are other culprits responsible other than militants. The confrontation between Israel and Hamas comes in the midst of Israel choking the life out of Gaza (or the destruction of its economy, the damage to its infrastructure, denying its people the freedom of movement, and its people being mistreated). The people of Gaza have their right to use their own waters to feed themselves. According to one provision of the Oslo accords, Gaza was given fishing rights up to 20 miles off its shore. Israel has slowly whittled that down to just three miles, with Israeli navy vessels firing on fishing boats even inside that paltry limit. Palestinians in Gaza are entitled to struggle for their right to live and prosper. That struggle is a form of self-defense – not aggression – against occupation, oppression, colonialism and imperialism. This conflict started with Israel and Hamas using tit for tat violence against each other. Palestinian factions wanted a truce on November 12. Then, Israel assassinated Hamas military leader Ahmed Jabari causing the violence to escalate. According to Israeli peace activist Gershon Baskin, that in the period leading up to Jabari's execution Egypt had been working to secure a long-term truce between Israel and Hamas. Jabari was apparently eager to agree to it. The peace activist had already met Barak to alert him to the truce, but it seems the defense minister and Netanyahu had more "pressing concerns" than ending the tensions between Israel and Hamas. Netanyahu represents the more reactionary factions in Israel as opposed to the peace movement (which consists of Israelis and Palestinians indeed). Now, Netanyahu is boosting in his polls. Ironically, the reactionaries yell about a fiscal crisis, but they say nothing on U.S. taxpayer dollars to subsidize Israel's rocket interception system called Ion Dome to millions of dollars. I believe in trading with other nations and giving money to other nations in terms of food and other things. Yet, I will never agree with sending taxpayers' dollars to another nation in military buildup, (especially advanced weaponry). A nation should have their own responsibility to build their own military up. In the final analysis, it will take a non-military solution to solve this problem. It takes a political solution to solve this matter alone. In the final analysis, Palestine has made great progress (before the bombings in Gaza) in pushing for international statehood. There have been talks of a cease fire, and finally it has arrived. The cease fire among Israel and Hamas is to begin at 2 pm. EST. There has been a bus explosion in Tel Aviv (with about 22 people injured with an IED. It was an evil attack) and the destruction found in Gaza is apparent. The
Western media mostly justifies the attacks in Gaza as a means of self-defense on the part of the Israelis. That's the fundamental point. Children can die in Gaza and no real, radical discussions for peace come about since to the corporate media, it's all in self-defense. The White House says that Israel has the right to defend itself. Operation "Pillar of Cloud" is of a controversial, complex nature. According to sources, senior U.S. military officials were on location in Israel working with their IDF counterparts in the days leading up to the attack. This operation started in November 14th. This was exactly one week after the U.S. Presidential elections. 75,000 Israeli troops have been deployed in case Israel wants to formulate a ground invasion of Gaza. One month before the attacks, U.S. and Israel were involved in the largest joint war games in Israeli history. The purpose of the war games was to test Israel's missile air defense system against attacks (from far and near like from Iran, Hezbollah, and Hamas). US Defense Secretary Leon and Israel's Minister of Defense Ehud Barack had established a process of close consultation. Panetta was in Israel in early August 2012. He returned to Tel Aviv two months later on October 3, two weeks before the launching of the US-Israeli Austere Challenge 12 military exercises. The first wave of the joint war games among Israel and America came about on October 18. These military exercises occurred during the U.S. elections too on November 6. These U.S./Israeli war games dealt with preparing for a military action. Even the joint war games called "Austere Challenge 12" involved the active participation of 3500 U.S. and 1000 Israeli troops. The U.S. contingent was made up 1000 U.S. troops stationed in Israel (including military advisers and special forces together with 25000 U.S. personnel under the jurisdiction of the U.S. 6th fleet in the Eastern Mediterranean and U.S. European Command (or EURCOM) according to the UPI. The Iron Dome is a new anti-rocket system. It's found near the southern city of Beersheba, Israel. The Israeli Defense Force deployed the $200 million Iron Dome system in response to dozens of rockets fired by Palestinian militants from Gaza in the past weeks. The Iron Dome is being used to protect Israel towns from rockets fired from Gaza. The joint US-Israeli war games were jointly coordinated by U.S. Air Force Lieutenant General Craig Franklin and IDF Brigadier-General Shachar Shohat. The stated objective of these military maneuvers was to "create "stress situations" in Israel's airspace and off its Mediterranean coast that test the ability of both countries to act against attacks "…from near [Hamas, Hezbollah] and far [Iran]." These war games were overseen by the United States European Command (EUCOM) Admiral James G. Stavridis. The whole Gaza attack operation was prepared for because of the war games involved these scenarios. Hamas firing rockets into Israel that targets civilians is wrong and illegal under international law. Yet, Israel is wrong for violating international law on many occasions as well (according to Pulitzer prize winning journalist Christ Hedges, Israel broke almost 100 Security Council resolutions regarding Gaza alone). It is interesting to note that there are extensive gas reserves off the Gaza coastline. Israel and Palestine are debating and fighting over the oil reserves now. Washington has no relationship with Hamas since they view Hamas as a terrorist group. This is why Egypt (with Morsi or the Muslim Brotherhood Prime Minister) is a key player in the negotiations. The destruction of Gaza has been opposed by even pro-Western nations like Turkey, Qatar, and Egypt. The West claims to oppose terrorism, but they are coordinating efforts to destroy Syria and install a puppet state. Even so-called humanitarian groups like Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch support the imperialist attacks in Syria. Qatar has worked in the U.S./Israeli/Saudi enterprise in trying to subvert and overthrow the government of Syria. This fact as been exposed in the 2007 New Yorker article titled, "The Redirection," which was written by Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Seymour Hersh. Netanyahu is a reactionary and his support of a murderous policy is just as wrong as the bus being bombed in Tel
Aviv. Another man said that no country on Earth would tolerate missiles raining down on its citizens from outside its borders, but he surely promotes sending murderous drones in Somalia, Pakistan, and Afghanistan as a means to fulfill kill list orders. America is also complicit in supporting this bloodshed in the Middle East too. In the final analysis, progressive voices in Israel and Palestine should use political efforts in resolving this crisis indeed. Hopefully, the ceasefire will stick among both parties. First, we must oppose any form of apartheid (when those in Israel have laws that have Israeli Jewish only roads, and other discriminatory laws. This is wrong) in the Middle East period. Second, we should advocate the right of the Palestinians to have nationhood or statehood. I don't agree with the militaristic agenda of AIPAC or Likudniks. Even Haaretz has reported that even Israeli Jewish people are trying to oppose the discrimination of Israeli Arabic people by the Israeli government. The Israeli Arabic population (like the black African population) still suffer discrimination and exclusion. Many Christians in Israel have been assaulted by reactionary Israelis then and now. Only 1.3 per cent of the company’s 12,000 workers are Arab, despite the Arab minority constituting nearly 20 per cent of the population. According to Sikkuy, a group lobbying for greater civic equality, discriminatory hiring policies have left thousands of Arab graduates jobless, even though the government promised affirmative action a decade ago. The prejudice faced by educated Arabs seeking employment was highlighted by a survey last November. It found that 83 per cent of Israeli businesses in the main professions admitted being opposed to hiring Arab graduates. There are the following facts of: the Israeli-occupied West Bank, including Jewish-only settlements, separate roads, military checkpoints, discriminatory marriage law, the West Bank barrier, use of Palestinians as cheap labour, Palestinian West Bank enclaves, inequities in infrastructure, legal rights, and access to land and resources between Palestinians and Israeli residents in the Israeli-occupied territories. If that isn't apartheid, then I don't what is. I do concede that some Israeli Arabic people can go into Universities, hospitals, and restaurants, but many black Africans have been discriminated against overtly and forcibly out of Israel.
Now, there are many Palestinian Arabic people that recognize Israel's right to exist from diplomats to political leaders. Some political Palestinian groups may not want that, but the goal of statehood is justified irrespective of others' personal views of Israel. Recognizing Israel's right to exist can be negotiated and discussed down the line, but an oppressed people have every right to their statehood (as advocated by people from across the political spectrum). The United Nations was instituted after WWII to organize international crisis and other international policy matters. Of course, no nation is perfect, so why do the reactionaries omit the discrimination of Palestinians in Israel? Other Middle Eastern nations aren't perfect since no nation is perfect. Yet, the idea of promoting the human rights of Palestinians seems to revolt the theocrats & neo-cons. The fact that the Sephardim & Palestinians lived in the land before 1897, the fact of Mossad spying in American soil, and the fact of even Israeli Arabic citizens denied job opportunities are facts not propaganda. Also, Egypt has a right to their sovereignty. If Egypt wanted to nationalize the Suez Canal, then that is their right. The Suez Canal crisis of 1956 involved a preemptive strike against Egypt. From a legal standpoint Nasser had the right to nationalize the canal as long as he paid off its shareholders. The UK, France, and Israel colluded in a secret agreement to take over the Suez Canal and occupy parts of Egypt. That is a fact (of these powers and even America didn't agree to militarily aid the West in that strike). President Dwight D. Eisenhower even was outraged at the British and French aggression against Egyptian territory. Israel's failure to inform
the United States of its intentions, combined with ignoring American entreaties not to go to war, sparked tensions between the countries. The United States subsequently joined the Soviet Union (ironically, just after the Soviets invaded Hungary) in a campaign to force Israel to withdraw. America negotiated a settlement to end that conflict. Ralphe Bunche is entitled to his views and he is a real hero. The reality is that all sides made mistakes in the Suez Canal controversy. I will admit to that. Yet, I will not support imperialists like France and Britain lusting for control over the Suez Canal for their vision of European domination in the Middle East. Following the debate on the matter by the United Nations Security Council, Egypt agreed on 11 October  to the principles regarding running the Canal, including maintaining its status as an international waterway. On 24 October a secret Anglo-French-Israeli agreement on an invasion of Egypt was finalized. See, that is the smoking gun, because Egypt already agreed with maintaining the canal as an international waterway, but the West still wanted to invade parts of Egypt anyway for geopolitical purposes. See, October 1956 is after August 1949. A Google search can easily determine that Egypt presently produces oil all of the time in the realm of 600,000 barrels a day. Also, the vast majority of the Muslims of the world reject sharia law, so for some to assume otherwise represents propaganda. This relates to our time since NATO is supporting the puppet state in Libya and the West wants another puppet state to replace Assad in Syria. Assad isn't a saint, but some of the terrorists in Syria aren't choir boys either. Things are complex in terms of describing foreign policy matters. Not to mention that Stevie Wonder is right to not perform for IDF forces, because Stevie Wonder is about peace not militarism. Also, the neo-cons (and their allies) try to deemphasize the suffering in Gaza via the blockade while worshipping the statues found in Israel. The truth is that progressive Palestinians and progressive Israelis want peace not discrimination, scapegoating, or bigotry. All peoples of the world deserve justice and equality. I reject occupation period. Now, just because the Palestinians deserves to not experience occupation doesn’t mean I will bow before an Arabic person. I bow before the Lord alone and I respect my black heritage, my black culture, and my black ancestors completely. See, the truth always comes out and it spreads like light. I don't just feel good about the truth. I feel GREAT. I will expose extremism and shills. The new tactic of the shill is to use concepts of "liberty" and "freedom" to hide their reactionary face. Their face is still reactionary, but they act like true liberty lovers. You can talk about peace all you want, but you can never have peace without justice. Justice should be given unto men, women, immigrants, and everyone of all backgrounds. It is our job to reject the lie that states’ rights are superior to human rights. The evil people of Jim Crow South opposed the welfare state, they wanted eugenics, they wanted segregation, and these folks desired other evils. Real people spoke out and actively fought to end a lot of oppression against human beings indeed. These shills have a pattern. Many of them hate Jewish people or Arabic people. When you investigate such a person, on many cases, they do hate black people too. So, these people aren't our side at all. One of these shills was the late William Luther Pierce (who wrote the "Turner Diaries"). His newsletter was funded by the Holocaust denier Willis Carto. Lew Rockwell is the head of the Mises Society and he wrote the infamous Ron Paul newsletters (that slandered human beings). Rockwelll is a neo-Confederacy or a person who believe that the wickedness of the Confederacy is somehow holy (which is sick to say the least). So, these people are connected to each other. Even the anarcho-capitalist extremist Tom DiLorenzo wants to blame the Union for the Civil War when it the avaricious plantation owners that brutalized innocent human beings throughout the South. They hate
Abraham Lincoln, because he was a Republican that caused an income tax, lessen state rights, and used government money to fund the International railroad. He wasn't perfect, but he would be castigated by the Republicans today on some issues. One sign of these reactionary shills is that they hate all progressive views and they are open to union busting, poor scapegoating, and other anti-human rights policies. Another such extremist was Milton Friedman. He didn't believe in actual freedom, because he helped Chile submit under the evil Pinochet administration. Friedman and others like him have been educated at the Chicago School. Chile under Pinochet once harmed the economic and political freedoms of Chile indeed. Wages were down and economic benefits were stripped from the people of Chile under Pinochet. Friedman praised the dictator General Suharto, which caused millions of people to die in Indonesia. We know what works. Norway is a prime example of that being one of the high GDP nations on planet Earth. Norway has a mixed economy. It has a 70 percent tax rate on the rich, it has government healthcare, it has strong public resources, great education, free cars for people who can't afford them, etc. The libertarian Ron Paul gave his final address to Congress recently in late 2012. What was interesting about his speech was that he expressed the old neo-Confederate interpretation of the Constitution and the false view that the bad old days of laissez faire capitalism is somehow holy. Ron Paul is wrong to believe that businesses should do almost whatever they want to. He attacks progressive ideas like union rights. Ron Paul is wrong to assume that everything was working just fine before the early 20th century. For example, a century ago, women were denied the right to vote by law and many non-white males were denied the right to vote via Jim Crow. Native Americans were confined to oppressive reservations and black people were frequently lynched nationwide not just in Dixie. We don't need the era of the robber barons again where monopolistic trusts overcharged key services and factory workers suffered dangerous conditions. The Great Depression proved that we need to sacrifice our time to promote a strong social safety net where we can have a living wage, Social Security, moral security, and respect for human dignity in our lives. We want liberty not a privileged system that benefits the oligarchs. Ron Paul is a reactionary that believed that we must follow the Golden Rule (which I have no issue with), but the Robber Barons didn't follow it either. Ron Paul needs to realize that the modern Constitution was about the expanding the federal government and making a sovereign Union beyond the weak Articles of Confederation. The Constitution gives the federal government the right to handle interstate commerce and promote the General Welfare of society. Article I, Section 8 is clear about that issue. The Tenth Amendment means that any powers not mentioned by the Constitution are reserved to the states or the people. It doesn't eliminate the constitutionally granted broad powers already in existence that comes from the federal government. Not to mention that new federal laws can exist anyway via Congress. We can't remain in the 18th century. The re-emergence of the reactionary is real. They hate the New Deal. They include theocrats, war mongering, free marketers, and others. They exaggerate the Tenth Amendment and promote the revisionist lie that the Founders wanted to restrain the federal government in an extreme fashion. 1899 is over. We need real infrastructure development, adequate housing, a progressive economic system, and real liberty to be transparent in society. Libertarians cry about force, but they forget that the Universe is imperfect. Therefore, you need righteous force in order to make the world better like nonviolent resistance and even self-defense. All forms of force aren’t completely evil at all. Sometimes, you have to confront evil via confrontation in order for goodness or righteousness to reign in the world.
If Israel is completely exempt from any criticism, then that is an extremist position to follow. I didn't know that the nation of Israel is God now. Apparently, it is not. A real reasonable position to follow is that Israel is a fallible nation that must radically improve its social and political policies completely. That isn't hard to ask. Israel is a small nation and no one here tries to obfuscate the errors instituted by other Middle Eastern nations. Yet, every nation on the Earth ought to be fairly critiqued. If it's just to criticize black Libyans being lynched by terrorists, then it's right to critique Mossad spying against Americans including the extremist behavior conducted by the IDF plainly. I am a consistent man, because I oppose Israeli civilians and Palestinian civilians suffering death completely. People are talking about fair housing, a 2 state solution, and ending injustice. This position is held by not only Palestinians, but progressive Israelis as well. Since the extremists always try to use religion as a means to justify occupation, militarism, and other evils, so here is my response to them. Solomon, David, and Jesus Christ condemned Israeli leadership or tried to reform Israel leadership back in the day. We have the right to do it now in love. Also, the cradle of Jewish civilization ought to be respected, but the Lemba and Ethiopian Jews should have true equality too in Israel and throughout the Earth. Even the OT prophets criticized the Israeli Kingdom thousands of years ago. If they did it, we have the right to call for justice too. It's not about hating all Israelis (which is silly and wrong), but it's about making people accountable about injustices. Ultimately, Jewish civilization & Arabic civilization originated from black African civilization since all human beings originated from the heart of the Motherland Africa. That’s a valuable jewel or gem.
Our brothers and our sisters in Israel
Ethiopian Jewish people in Israel Not too many people discuss about the plight of the Ethiopian Israeli peoples in Israel. Even their birthrate is declining in Israel unfortunately. Even in the States, we hear stories about black Ethiopian Jewish people suffering discrimination and racism in Israel. I first heard of such stories in the 1990’s and the 2000’s. Now, we see that Jewish Ethiopian women are given contraceptive injections before immigrating to Israel and after arrival. This is causing them to have a 50 percent decline in birthrate and a missing generation of Ethiopian children. It isn't just folks like me knowing about this, but even
sincere Israelis are speaking out against this evil. Israeli journalist Gal Gabi investigated this issue for her documentary series called "Vacuum" on Israeli Educational Television. Gal interviewed Ethiopian women about this issue. The Ethiopian women were given the contraceptive Depo-Provera against their will. These shots were given in the refugee camps of Gondar and continued in the transition camps in Addis Ababa. According to the women’s testimony, this continuity appears to have been a coordinated effort between the medical staff at the clinics in Ethiopia run by the JDC and doctors in Israeli hospitals and clinics. Similar acts have been done against the Sephardim and Yemeni Jewish human beings too. What is worse is that the Ethiopian women were never given proper family planning counseling outlining various birth control methods and never given the chance to choose the one with which they felt more comfortable. Gabai interviewed a female gynecologist who expressed shock at hearing that just about all Ethiopian women are given Depo-Provera shots, saying that it is rarely prescribed and usually recommended only for women who are institutionalized or developmentally disabled (in other words, women who cannot be relied upon to practice other methods responsibly). “This story reeks of racism, paternalism and arrogance. It’s a story to be ashamed of,” Gabai concluded. That is why MK IIan Gilon submitted an official request to Israel's attorney general Yehuda Weinstein for the launching of a criminal investigation. Gilon emphasized that the women were exposed to drug and hormone related side effects, of which they were not made aware. “It cannot be that the serious news of this invasive interference with the rights of Ethiopian immigrant women’s control over their own bodies will go without redress,” he wrote. Thousands of black Ethiopians came into Israel via Operations Moses, Solomon, and Sheba. They or the black Ethiopian Jewish human beings are called Beta Israel. To date, the MDA in Israel prohibits the use of blood donations which originated from natives of sub-Saharan Africa, except South Africa, natives of Southeast Asia, natives of the Caribbean and natives of countries which have been widely affected by the AIDS epidemic, including donations from the natives of Ethiopia. Moreover, since 1991 all immigrants from Ethiopia to Israel have to undergo mandatory HIV screenings, regardless of their intention to donate blood. That is uncalled for indeed.
Our brothers and sisters in these images are protesting for human rights in front of the Knesset and in other places. They take inspiration from Malcolm X, Dr. Martin Luther King, and Nelson Mandela as a means to advance liberty.
Many Beta Israel black brothers and black sisters are protesting in Israel for the employment rights of Ethiopian academics. The notable Israeli Ethiopian Jewish human beings include people like Hagi Yaso, Asefu Baro, Abraham Adgeh, the beautiful Sister Ayala Ingedashet, Danny Adino Ababa, and others. Still, Israel needs to confront many aspects of bigotry in their nation just like in America, Libya, and throughout the Earth. One Lukudnik Minister of Interior made the racist, stupid remark recently that: "...Israel is for the white man..." That’s hilarious when the original inhabitants of Israel are not blonde haired blued eyed white people at all. Guess Who? LOL. See, the truth is live in living color and it is not bland. Israel has no European borders and it borders Egypt and Egypt is found in the continent of Africa. The Biblical Queen of Sheba came from Ethiopia, NOT Russia & Poland. Humans came from Africa originally. It is very hypocritical for the racist, white supremacist Lukudniks to talk about a few thousand of black African brothers and sisters immigrating into Israel, but allow nearly 2 million Russian folks to come into Israel for the past 15-20 years. Therefore, the system of white supremacy is ever real. My eyes are open without being shut. This is a demographics issue. They know that people of color are growing greatly in the world. That is a great development. Now, they want to use population control methods as means to lower the population of individuals of color, especially black people since they hate black people for obvious reasons. Just look at NSM 200 document to see their hatred of black individuals. That is why I will forever agree with black African Unity. Pan-Africanism is the way to go and I believed in it even back in the day.
*Now, it's important to love the Israelis and the Palestinians. Certain evil factions want us to either express vicious hatred against either all Israelis or against all Palestinians. I will not act in that fashion. Both Israelis and Palestinians deserve peace, dignity, respect, and equality via political means.
Appendix A: Updates on the Syrian War
There have been threats of a potential Western war against Syria over chemical weapons. Now, there are 10,000 U.S. troops (including French, British, and NATO troops) amassing off the coast of Syria for a potential invasion. The U.S. claims that Syria is mixing chemical weapons, but this view is lacking in much credibility. War against Syria could expand Middle Eastern conflict. Pentagon officials say that there is no evidence that Syria is mixing chemical weapons. It isn't clear that the precursors have been moved from separate storage sites to one location. The Syrian Tribune has released a video allegedly showing Syrian rebels killing rabbits with chemicals and threatening to use them against supporters of the Syrian government. It is not possible at this moment to find this information genuine or propaganda. The U.S. will present one of the leading Syrian rebel groups as a terrorist operation. McClatchy notes that until recently the Syrian opposition blamed this terrorist group's attacks on the government. This means that the terrorist violence carried out by one of the main opposition groups was wrongly blamed on the Syrian government. Even the American government has backed numerous terrorist opposition groups in Syria. Russia has docked 2
warships in Syria, which is a show of support of the government. There is another piece of news about this issue as well. There is the arrival of the USS Eisenhower in the Mediterranean Sea just outside of Syria. NATO forces are in place to prepare possibly to attack Syria and attempt to topple President Bashar Al-Assad. “Sources close to the French Defense Ministry reported Friday, Dec. 7, that a Western-Arab military intervention against the Assad regime is due to begin shortly with the participation of the US, France, Britain, Turkey, Jordan and other anti-Assad Arab nations,” reports Israeli news outlet DebkaFile, adding that Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Qatar’s special forces will also be involved. There is the USS Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group now stationed in waters outside of Syria. There is the French aircraft carrier Charles De Gaulle in the fray as well. For recent weeks, there has been training exercises between Britain and France. They work on preparing to attack fortifications in the Alawite Mountains, because Assad is predicted to escape if he wants to flee Damascus. The report adds that the assault, “Would be modeled on the Western intervention in Libya in 2011. It would combine an aerial blitz with ground action by special forces for destroying Assad’s chemical weapons stocks, his air force and his air defense systems.” The White House threatened to attack Syria (as beyond a red line) if Syria uses chemical weapons on rebels or anyone else. The talking points of the White House are very similar to the 2002 talking points of the Bush administration, which led into the invasion of Iraq. It turned out that Saddam Hussein didn't have massive amounts of weapons of mass destruction (since the information used to justify the Iraqi invasion was based on fabricated evidence). Many of the rebels in Syria, Libya, etc. are linked to al-Qaeda terrorists (which killed U.S. troops and some of them want draconian Sharia law to spread across the region). NATO approved of stationing U.S. made Patriot missiles along Turkey's border. They claim to want to use these items for "defense." Now, Turkey is harboring and providing logistics for foreign fighters across the border into Syria. Turkey has already invaded Iraq to try to get Kurdish rebels who killed more than 25 Turkish soldiers in multiple attacks in the southern Turkish province of Hakkari (reported in October 2011 by McClatchy Newspapers). Conversely, this same silent and complicit “international community” has warned that any mirroring strategy by Syria to likewise follow militants, harbored by Turkey, over its borders in “hot pursuit” will result in military intervention. John McCain admitted that the Turkish government doesn't have the support of most of its people by supporting NATO's attempt to institute regime change in the nation of Syria. We don't need a NATO intervention based on dubious evidence. The Syrian civil war is tragic and hopefully a peaceful solution can come about. Diplomacy, humanitarian aid, and other peaceful actions should be taken to end the Syrian civil war in a reasonable, just fashion. Our country has a lot of challenges indeed. We need massive investment to help America, we need decent housing, and we need better education for all people in America too. NAFTA, the Free Trade Area of the Americas and the TransPacific Partnership promotes globalization. The hope is that we should support the progressive elements in the Middle East as a means to make the Muslim region more progressive as time goes forward in the years and decades. I do believe that this will happen. It will take time though.
Appendix B: Updates on Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood
One more year from today and I will be 30 years old. In Egypt, democracy problems still remain. We know that the Muslim Brotherhood is an intelligence asset and it has ties to Western intelligence for decades. It is an instrument of the globalists including the Council on Foreign Relations. Now, they are acting similar to the brutal regime of Hosni Mubarak and his brutal National Democratic Party. “Islamist supporters of President Mohamed Morsi captured, detained and beat dozens of his political opponents last week, holding them for hours with their hands bound on the pavement outside the presidential palace while pressuring them to confess that they had accepted money to use violence in protests against him,” writes David Kirkpatrick. Egyptian activists have collected evidence of the abuse and they have posted evidence of tis abuse on Twitter and Youtube. The Egyptian Independent has reported on this story as well. Egypt’s police state has been built up under Sadat (he at least tried to make peace before he was unfortunately assassinated) and Mubarak. This same police state system is not wielded by the Muslim Brotherhood. Peter Goodgame have documented the British Intelligence links to the Muslim Brotherhood (the West used his organization as a means to contain revolution in the Muslim world). The Arab Spring has many sincere, progressive freedom fighters. I will admit to that. Yet, much of it has been infiltrated by globalist controlled NGOs, and corporate entities (under the guise of democracy and freedom) as a means for the establishment to further rule over the Middle East. Sunni and Shia Muslims are played against each other in a divide and conquer strategy for this goal of imperialism to continue onward. We don’t need a fanatical Sunni Wahhabi version of Islam (that is different from mainstream Sunni Islam) to use authoritarian rule over the people. The CFR is using folks like Ed Husain to go along with this token so-called “democratization” of the Middle East. There are such extremists trying to dominate Tunisia, Morocco, Jordan, and Libya. “There’s glee in Washington that traditional American foes are now friends. I understand and support that sentiment,” Husain writes. “Having advocated for over a year for issues-based engagement with the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, I was delighted to host a delegation from their Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) for meetings at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York and Washington.” “I think if the Muslim Brotherhood is brought in to a broader coalition but on the condition that it respects the peace treaty toward Israel, that it’s respectful to the west and it respects human rights,” he told Fox News last year. So, you still have people that sellout their own people as a means to suck up to their Western slave masters like the
IMF. In Egypt, real protesters complain about reactionaries and extremists trying to attack real protesters. The police in Egypt are doing their best to protect the Muslim Brotherhood. There are thousands of people in Cairo protesting all of the time.
Appendix C: Some Extra Words on the Fiscal Cliff
The fiscal cliff is an important issue to talk about. We have unprecedented wealth disparity. This income inequality is harming millions and this system still advances militarism, imperial wars, and corporate power increased. The police state continues in the world too. Republicans and Democrats each believe in some form of austerity. The only different is the degree of austerity. The cliff includes sequester that including 1.2 trillion dollar cuts in the military and our domestic resources. Washington is acting bipartisan in having their agenda. Even some Democrats want to ruin much of the social contract by eliminating funds from Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, and publicly funded pensions. Even the President wanted deep cuts to these programs and he funded by Wall Street finance. That should tell you something. This isn't news since a lot of President has been funded by the same corporate interests. These same austerity goals have been promoted before during the 2010 Simpson-Bowles National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform (NCFRF). The NCFRF recommended deep Medicare cuts, high Medicaid co-pays, and restrictions on filing malpractice suits. These aims end Washington's responsibility to advance public healthcare in the USA. Some feel that raising the retirement age incrementally to 67 is a scam. Even the 1981 Reagan National Commission on Social Security Reform falsely believed that the OASDI (or the Old Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance Trust Fund) will run out of money as early as August 1983. The truth is that some folks stole money from Social Security into private hands. Maximum retirement age is 70. Benefits are less than recipients got a generation earlier. Raising the retirement age is code language for cutting benefits. Orwellian language hides it. It is not a secret that the super-rich want to shred the social safety net. The elite use coded language as a means to cover up their goals. To the austerity
crowd, fix means cut, fiscally conservative means austerity, reform means an attack on public and private resources. The Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) also recommended deep Medicare cuts, higher Part B premiums, big co-pays and outpatient fee increases, as well as establishing privately owned, lower-cost health insurance exchanges to gradually eliminate traditional Medicare. It also wants Medicaid funding cut. Bipartisan forces falsely blame Social Security and Medicaid for the debt burden in the USA. Both parties believe in the erroneous view that both programs are going broke. The truth is that when both programs are administered in the right way, then they will be sustainable in the long term. Corporate money dominates our politics too. That is reality. Social justice is taboo to talk about. If the President wants to be in the status quo, then he will be a pro-Wall Street type of President. The cliff will include 4 trillion cuts over the next decade. To handle our deficit and debt, we should end militarism in the USA; we should stop bailing out big banks, end huge corporate subsidies, and end the tax cuts for the rich. The corporate bosses want these fiscal cuts against the poor obviously. That is why the President wants to lower the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 28 percent. Rasmus says further tax breaks are coming at a time corporations pay the lowest effective rates in over 25 years. Corporate taxes in the past two years as a percent of profits averaged about 12.4%. From 1989 – 2007, they averaged 24.7%. Corporations hoarded over $2.5 trillion in cash. With that amount and record low taxes, what justifies cutting more? Regardless of what happens, cuts not stimulus is going to come about. So, we know the solutions to this issue, but the 2 party system does not want populism. We ought to prepare for the worst and help humanity.
