There is nothing new happening in Palestine. This is simply a continuation of the execution of Theodore Herzl's dream which is now a century old. It goes on and on, 'round and 'round, with no end.
CRUELTY OF ISRAEL goes on and on without end
As Henry Ford once said, "Even if the Protocols and Elders of Zion do not exist, this describes what is happening," the facts are obvious, there is no necessity for a conspiracy.
The corporate grip on opinion in the United States in favor of Israel is one of the wonders of the Western world. Even Gore Vidal never named the beast.

John Pilger dissects the truth and lies in the 'war on terror'. Award-winning journalist John Pilger investigates the discrepancies between American and British claims for the 'war on terror' and the facts on the ground as he finds them in Afghanistan and Washington, DC.
Why does everyone persist in using the inappropriate and incorrect term "holocaust?" I know it is emotionally inflammatory and attacks or appeals which stir and exploit emotion, is a fundamental Zionist tactic in discourse, but holocausts are not necessarily illegal or bad, in fact, they are useful for cleansing and renewal, in the sense of plague. Whereas "genocide" is not only literally correct, it is just as passionately inflammatory as well as being beyond question highly immoral and illegal in just about any culture.
Yes, the Israeli attacks in Palestine and the Gaza, do constitute an anti-Semitic genocide or "holocaust" in the currency in which they have coined the words.
It would appear that they have learned well from their Nazi Masters. But, could it be that this is it simply a matter of them having found that the story they created to record the history of the Nazi-Jewish encounter so effective that this is what they adopted to apply to the real world when they arrived in Palestine?
For centuries, Jews have been unwelcome, viewed and treated with distrust, and persecuted for whatever reasons, in many places in the world. They have suffered enslavement, pogroms, segregation, racial and religious persecution because of this.
It has taken them centuries to overcome much of this and to achieve the degree of acceptance which they realized in the latter half of the past century. They have gained entré into the highest levels of politics, government, economics, industry, business and social venues throughout the world which had heretofore been denied them.
And now, a handful of Zionists, a seemingly insignificant number among the masses of world Jewry, have taken over the dream of the "displaced Jew" for a homeland and, when this all washes out in the end, as it will, centuries of goodwill shall have been destroyed, and the Jew will, once again, become the pariah of the world!
Bet on it!
It is the millions of innocent Jews out there in the world who will pay tomorrow for the depredations of Israel today. And, they will pay, tomorrow, and tomorrow and tomorrow, and for many tomorrows to come, before they ever, if ever they do, regain the trust and acceptance of the world again.
For whatever reasons, they are being destroyed by a small minority within, in much the same way Islam is threatened by its own violent militant minorities.
I cease to be shocked by the beastiality of beasts. Kittens purr! Dogs bite! Scorpions sting! Israelis bomb civilians!
My question is why non-Jews of the US are accommodating?
And, "non-jews" elsewhere in the world, particularly Islamic "non-jews" in so-called Islamic Nations, Kingdoms, Dictatorships and "Republics."
Sophocles said, "Know thyself." Clausewitz advocated that for success in war we, "Know the enemy." Both are fine and complementary pieces of advice.
It has long been known, that in order to contest with the enemy, you must know the enemy, his goals, his values, and what he is capable of risking to achieve his ambitions. In this context, I recommend The Controversy of Zion By: Douglas Reed It is significant of the powers of Zionism that Douglas Reed was destroyed by their attacks and his career as a journalist was brought to an end because of the things he wrote; and it took twenty years before a publisher would touch this book. But, as a minimum, one should read the Preface By Ivor Benson, scan some of the text and, definitely, read the Epilogue!
It still does not get wide distribution, is not well known, and Googling Douglas Reed does not show up much more than diatribe and condemnation of him as an avid anti-Semite, the usual and most effective Zionist counterattack! I would say he was literally tried in a kangaroo court, hung, quartered, and left hanging out to dry!
Personally, I find no fault in his work. He seems to have called it like it was, and provided sufficient reference and attribution to back his words. You will note that the attacks which took him down, and disenfranchised him, did not respond to his work, but only attacked the person, by innuendo and name-calling. The same tactic used most recently on Jimmy Carter. ( Former President of the United States: James Earl Carter) and other Noble Peace laureates that dare defend the Palestinian peoples struggle for Freedom in their Homeland.
Gandhi said 55 yeas ago: "Palestine belongs to the Arabs in the same sense that England belongs to the English or France to the French. What is going on in Palestine today cannot be justified by any moral code of conduct. If they [the Jews] must look to the Palestine of geography as their national home, it is wrong to enter it under the shadow of the British gun. A religious act cannot be performed with the aid of the bayonet or the bomb."
"They can settle in Palestine only by the goodwill of the Arabs. As it is, they are co-sharers with the British in despoiling a people who have done no wrong to them. I am not defending the Arab excesses. I wish they had chosen the way of non-violence in resisting what they rightly regard as an unacceptable encroachment upon their country. But according to the accepted canons of right and wrong, nothing can be said against the Arab resistance in the face of overwhelming odds."
Much of what Gandhi said still rings true.
