when words become weapons

(A plea of “Not guilty”for Ken Livingstone)

Myths Rose„Zionism“ is a word that is never mentioned in the German media  but „Anti-Semitism“ is always present in the public domain, like an invisible landmine, ready to be used against people who tread the forbidden path (defending Palestinian rights and seeking justice based on „clinging to truth“, a basic principle of Gandhi in his resistance against British rule).

The sordid history of Zionism (supposedly an emancipatory movement striving for freedom and self-determination of Jews in a “national home”), how it signed up to Western imperialism , its core elements of racism and religious superstition,  is constantly being blacked out, erased from our minds.

Anybody daring to mention the collaboration between Zionists and Hitler’s Third Reich will get hammered by the Thought-Police and our fawning media is happy to help them with the job.

HOW “ANTI-SEMITIC” IS THE LABOUR PARTY?  (wrong question)

A shocking example for this is the recent treatment Ken Livingstone received from David Mellor on LBC Radio who treated him like a naughty child and demanded repeatedly an apology for mentioning Hitler and Zionism in the same breath.

The British media immediately joined the Zionist bandwagon by doing nothing to question the claim of “antisemitism” , calling Livingstone’s words “inflammatory” and  agreeing that the Labour party has been “tainted” by his remarks.

Greenslade on Livingstone Apparently fuelled by moral indignation and the illusion of intellectual superiority, Roy Greenslade  (a professor of journalism!) wrote a scathing comment in The Guardian:

“Has Ken Livingstone lost the plot? Can he not see that what he said about Hitler and Zionism was utterly barmy? Does he not realise that his remarks were an historical nonsense?”

No Sir, Ken Livingstone has not „lost it“ and his remarks were not „historical nonsense“ either.  He did not say that Hitler was a Zionist but meant that Nazi-Germany and Zionism had overlapping interests which may sound shocking but is no surprise for those who stick to the historical facts.

I think the man deserves a lot of respect for having the guts to stand up for the (forbidden) truth even if  the British fawning media (while enabling mass murder in Syria, Yemen and Iraq) come down on him like a ton of bricks.

Why should anyone be sorry “for mentioning Hitler”?  Because “he is such a toxic person”? This is the most absurd notion I have heard on public radio.

 I’m not going to apologise for telling the truth“  (Ken Livingstone on LBC Radio)

Instead of checking what the historical facts about the relation between Zionism and the Third Reich really are, the “churnalists” eagerly focus on the “anti-semitic” label and how it will damage Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour party, knowing full-well that Livingstone’s claim  about a „well-orchestrated campaign by the Israel lobby to smear anybody who criticises Israel policy as antisemitic” is true.

 „You are a disgusting racist, a Nazi apologist…“.

(John Mann reprimanding Ken Livingstone in front of a film crew which “happened” to be there …)

This heavily publicized display of moral outrage (staged by Labour MP John Mann for “bringing the party into disrepute”) against Ken Livingstone was even more proof of how subservient British politicians have become to Zionism and the quasi-fascist Israeli government.

Claiming Hitler was a Zionist is not only a huge historical perversion, but it directly equates Nazism and Zionism. It suggests they share objectives and values; it is guilt by association. It is hard to think of a more offensive linkage.“

(Rabbi Danny Rich, member of the Labour party, quoted in the Guardian)

Zionism BrennerBut the historical record is clear on this: Yes, the Zionists DID collaborate with Nazi-Germany for their political goals (even when the Holocaust became evident in 1941).  Here are a few examples:

ZIONISM DID NOTHING TO FIGHT FOR THE RIGHTS OF JEWS  (AS EQUAL CITIZENS)

The following statements (excerpts) are from the Zionist federation of Germany, published on June 21, 1933 shortly after Hitler came to power. In it it proposes to help the state with the “solution of the Jewish question” and finds that Nazi-Germany and Zionism have common interests:

ZIONISM  ACCEPTED  THE RACIST  DISCRIMINATION  IN  NAZI-GERMANY (and found it useful)

 “Zionism believes that a rebirth of national life, such as is occuring in Germany through  adhesion to Christian and national values, must also take place in the Jewish national group. For the Jew, too, origin, religion, community of fate and group consciousness must be of decisive significance in the shaping of his life.“

 They offer proposals  “on the regulation of the situation of the Jews in the new German state .. which pave the way for a real solution of the Jewish question that will satisfy the German state. […] We are not concerend with the fate of individual jews who have lost their  economic and social positions as a result of Germany’s profund transformation. […] On the foundation of the new state, which has established the principle of race, we wish so to fit our community into the total structure .. so that for us too, fruitful activity for the Fatherland is possible.” (They go on to say that they believe  in “the bold resoluteness of the new Germany in handling the Jewish question,  in “taking decisive steps toward overcoming the Jewish problem” …)

 Under the header “relationship to the German people” one can read:

 “We, too, are against mixed marriage and are for maintaining the purity of the Jewish group and reject any trespasses of the cultural domain … we believe in the possibility of an honest relationship of loyalty between a group-conscious Jewry and the German state”.

[To this day “mixed marriage” is illegal in Israel as it was under Hitler in Germany …. where is the moral outrage?]

So it should come as no surprise that under “Emigration” we find the following statement:

“For its practical aims, Zionism hopes to be able to win the collaboration even of a government fundamentally hostile to Jews, because in dealing with the Jewish question not sentimentalities are involved but a real problem, whose solution interests all peoples … especially the German people.

 The realization of Zionism could only be hurt by resentment of Jews abroad against the German development. Boycott propaganda (then being carried out in the US) is in essence un-Zionist, because Zionism wants not to do battle …”

 (Yet it was clear from the beginning that the colonization of Palestine was impossible without massive violence against the native Arab population as Vladimir Jabotinsky openly admitted in his “Iron Wall” and as we have now seen for decades.)

They then go on to say that their “solution” to the Jewish question would “entail important advantages for the German people” .. and that the idea of nationhood would “undergo a decisive deepending by a statesmanlike action on the part of the new Germany”.

ZIONISM  CREATES  THE  MYTH  OF  A  JEWISH NATION  (BASED ON  THE BLOOD & SOIL IDEOLOGY OF THE NAZIS)

If the position of the Jews in Germany should be “regulated through recognition of their special character” this would “advance the German principles of nationality”.  The Zionists even go so far as to acknowledge that “the abnormal situation of the Jews” lead to “scarcely tolerable conditions for other peoples” (!).

They end with the hope that the German Government will have “full understanding” for their “clear posture” (regarding the Jewish question) because it “harmonizes with the interests of the [fascist] state”.

At the September 1935 National Socialist Party Congress, the Reichstag adopted the so-called “Nuremberg laws” that prohibited marriages and sexual relations between Jews and Germans and, in effect, proclaimed the Jews an „alien“ minority nationality. A few days later the Zionist Jüdische Rundschau was not outraged but editorially welcomed the new measures:

Germany … is meeting the demands of the World Zionist Congress when it declares the Jews now living in Germany to be a national minority. Once the Jews have been stamped a national minority it is again possible to establish normal relations between the German nation and Jewry. The new laws give the Jewish minority in Germany its own cultural life, its own national life. In future it will be able to shape its own schools, its own theatre, and its own sports associations. In short, it can create its own future in all aspects of national life …“

MILITANT ZIONISTS  OFFER  TO FIGHT  FOR  THE  THIRD  REICH

Stern com stampEven more shocking is a letter from underground Zionist terrorist leader Avraham Stern (received by the German embassy in Ankara) proposing in January 1941 (when the “Endloesung” was already in sight and  the “Stern Gang” now regarded Britain as their main enemy) “the active participation of the NMO [Lehi] in the war on the side of Germany in exchange for Nazi help in creating a “Jewish state.”

Here are the most appalling statements:

The Zionist military leaders acknowledge that  “solving the Jewish question” once and for all  means a “Jew-free” Europe:

However, the only way this can be totally achieved is through settlement of these masses in the homeland of the Jewish people, Palestine, and by the establishment of a Jewish state in its historical boundaries.

The NMO, which is very familiar with the good will of the German Reich government and its officials towards Zionist activities within Germany and the Zionist emigration program, takes that view that:

  1. Common interests can exist between a European New Order based on the German concept and the true national aspirations of the Jewish people as embodied by the NMO.
  2. Cooperation is possible between the New (fascist) Germany and a renewed, folkish-national Jewry [Hebräertum].
  3. The establishment of the historical Jewish state on a national and totalitarian basis, and bound by treaty with the German Reich, would be in the interest of maintaining and strengthening the future German position of power in the Near East.“ […]

Brenner 51 DocumentsTalk about sucking up to Hitler. For more documents proving Zionist collaboration with the Nazis try these books)

N.B. These Zionists DO NOT CONDEMN the grave injustices the Third Reich imposed on Jews (and political opponents). On the contrary, they see these measures as conducive for their own plans: to “encourage” (even coerce) as many Jews a possible to emigrate to Palestine (thus loading the “Jewish question” on the Palestinian Arabs who were going to suffer extreme injustices for decades as a result).

 “If I knew that it was possible to save all the [Jewish] children of Germany by transporting them to England, but only half of them by transporting them to Palestine, I would choose the second.”

(future Israeli President David Ben-Gurion, quoted by  Israeli historian Tom Segev)

ZIONISM IS OBSESSED WITH CREATING A JEWISH MAJORITY IN PALESTINE (using criminal and immoral means to get there)

But the majority of educated European Jews (especially in the West) did not want to leave their home countries since their national identity was German, French, etc. and they lead  a fairly good life (until the Nazis arrived).  The situation of the Eastern Jews was totally different: many of them lived in poverty, in filthy ghettoes and under the command of the “Talmudic” rabbis who encouraged the segregation from the inferior “goyim”.  These people became the nucleus of “Israel” and even after the Holocaust most Western, liberal Jews wanted to go to the US, not Israel so the Zionists had to use brutal methods of intimidation (and deception) to get the “human material” they needed for their artificial “homeland”.

shadow holocaust GrodzinskyThey infiltrated the DP-camps after the war in order to “persuade” survivors to emigrate to Palestine.  A recruitment campaign in these camps (to get enough fighters for  the planned assault against the Palestinians) resulted in only 0,3 % of  the male DPs as volunteers.  So a compulsory draft was necessary.

 This bizarre project – in which a non-nation state imposed compulsory military service on people who had never even lived in the land for which they were required to fight – was enforced through a number of mechanisms, including publishing black lists of “draft evaders”, firing them from jobs, evicting them from dwellings, withdrawing their food rations, and beating them. These tactics were also at times used on their relatives.”

 (Source: Alison Weir, Against our better Judgement, p. 79  with reference to Grodzinsky: Shadow of the Holocaust – see also the quote below)

This is a shocking affair. Several thousand sick, malnourished, and vulnerable orphans, still at great risk, were forced by the Zionists to stay in the [German] camps, even though arrangements were made for them to arrive to safety in England and France. The rest of this tragedy constitutes chapter 4 of my book.”

They also “retrieved” Jewish children (often against their will, in tears) who had been rescued by compassionate people during the war and put them into orphanages run by the “Jewish Brigade”.  A search for relatives was not allowed to avoid the risk that the children might want to stay in Europe.  They needed to be turned into good little Zionists so they had to learn (and speak only) Hebrew and  internalize the myth of the “promised land”.

WHAT  JEWISH  PEOPLE?

Shlomo Sand InventionAs Shlomo Sand has shown in his book, the idea of a “Jewish people” is a complete fantasy. The ancestors of most “Israelis” (immigrants from Eastern Europe and Russia) were the Khazars, a Mongolian tribe* who collectively converted to Judaism (by decree of its ruler) in the 8th century. They never set foot on the “Holy Land” and had absolutely no connection to biblical “Juda” or “Israel”.

(*Names like “Kagan”, “Kahane” or “Cohen”  are variations of the Mongolian word for ruler: Khan )

ZIONISM IS OBSESSED WITH RACIAL PURITY

Keep that in mind when you read about Jabotinsky’s emphatic insistence on  “preserving racial purity” as an absolute condition for saving “the special, national character” of Jews.  Accoding to  him, this must be done “at all costs” which means (planned) racial segregation and ethnic cleansing are “necessary” so that the “Jewish bloodline” will not be “diluted” by mixed marriages and in order to make “Jews” the majority “race”  in Palestine / Israel.

So we already see, that this is a mirror-image of the “blood and soil” ideology of the Nazis and Hitler did the Zionists a huge favour by fostering the myth that “Jews” are a race when there is only Judaism as a religion. Since Jews are not a “nation”, they do not need a “national home” either. This was just another devilish exercise of “divide et impera”.

ZIONISM IS BASED ON A BIG LIE

The whole thing (“Jewish national integrity” and “spiritual energy” bound to the “promised land”) was completely fabricated and part of a sinister political game which included support for the Nazis and the Bolsheviks by the same power circles  in order to destroy  geo-political rivals Germany and Russia by turning them (twice) against each other.  (Britain’s role in this diabolical game –  see Preparata: Conjuring Hitler)

Opponents of Zionism  fought for the rights of Jews in their different countries but rejected the idea of putting thousands of Jews in a foreign Muslim country, like a dagger into the heart of the Arab world.

Gandhi articulated this attitude in 1938 with the following  words of wisdom:

My sympathy does not blind me to the requirements of justice.The cry for the national home for the Jews does not make much appeal to me. The sanction for it is sought in the Bible and the tenacity with which the Jews have hankered after return to Palestine.

Why should they not, like other peoples of the earth, make that country their home where they are born and where they earn their livelihood? Palestine belongs to the Arabs in the same sense that England belongs to the English or France to the French. It is wrong and inhuman to impose the Jews on the Arabs. What is going on in Palestine today cannot be justified by any moral code of conduct.

The mandates have no sanction but that of the last war. Surely it would be a crime against humanity to reduce the proud Arabs so that Palestine can be restored to the Jews partly or wholly as their national home. The nobler course would be to insist on a just treatment of the Jews wherever they are born and bred.”

ZIONISM: THE FORBIDDEN MEMORY (COMPARISON WITH  FASCISM AND HITLER)

By looking at the assessments of contemporary witnesses, who experienced the growing political power of Zionism (especially in the US and Britain), the creation of Israel and who were appalled by the  unscrupulous  behaviour of its leaders, we gain further insight into the true spirit of Zionism:

Sir John Munro Troutbeck (1894-1971), head of the British Middle East Office in Cairo and later ambassador to Iraq, wrote in a letter to Churchill on May 18, 1948 – shortly after the creation of “the state of Israel”:

 “It is difficult not to see that Zionist policy is anything else than unashamed aggression carried out by methods of deceit and brutality not unworthy of Hitler”

Quoted by William Roger Louis in The British Empire in the Middle East 1945-1951, p.576 (1986)

So Ken Livingstone has no reason to apologize for putting Zionism and Nazism in a moral context (not as morally “equal” but as dangerous ideologies with a racist, supremacist core) . Even the most horrific Nazi atrocities cannot and must not serve as a moral fig-leaf for Zionist crimes (committed so soon after the “Holocaust”).

On 2 June 1948, Sir John Troutbeck sent another diplomatic message, this time to the British foreign secretary, Ernest Bevin. In it he complains that

the Americans are responsible for the creation of a gangster state“ headed by “an utterly unscrupulous set of leaders“.

REMORSELESS  ZIONIST TERRORISM: „FREEDOM FIGHTERS“ IN ACTION

Bernadotte murderThe context for these condemnations were of course the numerous attacks committed by Zionist terrorists against British officials:  e.g. the assassination of Lord Moyne in Cairo (November 6, 1944) or the bombing of the King David Hotel in 1946. The assassination of UN-envoy Count Folke Bernadotte in 1948 is perhaps the most despicable political murder the Zionist gangs committed at that time. (Regarding the abominable crimes against the Palestinians – see below)

While the British government and military have not been unfamiliar with terrorist methods for their own purposes, it must be pointed out that the most famous Zionist terrorist „masterminds“ are unique in one respect: they have never been held to account for their crimes and later even became Prime Minister of Israel (Menachim Begin and Yitzak Shamir).

The remains of two Jewish assassins (hanged in 1945 for the murder of Lord Moyne) were brought to Israel in 1975 and received a state funeral with full military honors. They are considered to be national heroes until this day. (No apologies required and demanded by our presstitutes in this case …!)

Why did Churchill support the creation of a „Jewish homeland“ in Palestine? Perhaps this paragraph (written by him and published in 1920) can offer a clue:

 „Of course, Palestine is far too small to accomodate more than a fraction of the Jewish race, nor do the majority of national Jews want to go there (!). But if such a state should come into existence in our lifetime .. an event would have been created … which would … be especially in harmony with the truest interest of the British empire.“

Well, as it turned out, the immorality and cunning of the British Empire was more than matched by the Zionists …

Lord MoyneWinston Churchill was a close friend of Lord Moyne  but at the same time a supporter of the Zionist ambitions in Palestine. So how did the react to the cold-blooded murder in Cairo?

 If our dreams for Zionism are to end in the smoke of the assassin’s pistol and our labors for the future are to produce a new set of gangsters worthy of Nazi Germany, then many like myself would have to reconsider the position we have maintained so consistently and so long in the past. If there is to be any hope of a peaceful and successful future for Zionism, these wicked activities must cease, and those responsible for them must be destroyed root and branch”.

(Quote from an article by Winston Churchill, New York Times, November 18, 1944)

So we must keep all that in mind every time the Israeli government says it cannot negotiate with Hamas or Hezbollah „because they are terrorists“.  (Possible links between „IS“ and Israel need to be further examined ….)

against our better judgement WeirThe web of political intrigue spun by the Zionist organisations entangled more and more US-politicians (being no less dangerous than terror attacks in Palestine)  but they were not visible to the public.  A good primer for understanding the political machinations of Zionists in the US is this book:

Watch the author, the courageous Alison Weir talking about the book in this video:

Today the secrecy is no longer necessary as American current and future „leaders“ have accepted that they must kneel down before AIPAC/  Israel in order to advance their political career. (Just look at Hilary Clinton and try not to throw up …)

DARK FORCES & BLACK HOLES: EINSTEIN EXPOSES THE ZIONIST CRIMES

Albert EinsteinHere is one more contemporary (this time Jewish) 1940s-witness, appalled at the brutality of the Zionist terrorist-gangs whose job was to ethnically cleanse the newly created „Israel“ from the unwanted native Arab population. In their own self-serving language this terror was called  „encourage them to leave“. (Remember this happened only 3 years after the „Holocaust“ had ended and was meticulously planned  by the „chosen people“ …)

Albert Einstein’s (originally a supporter of the Zionist project) famous letter to the New York Times  (published on December 4, 1948 with the support of other prominent Jews) is still highly relevant, especially the exposé of the fascist nature of the Zionist military doctrine and the deception the Likud party practised to hide its true character (represented by Begin then and by Netanyahu now). Here are some excerpts:

TO THE EDITORS OF THE NEW YORK TIMES:

Among the most disturbing political phenomena of our times is the emergence in the newly created state of Israel of the “Freedom Party” (Tnuat Ha Herut), a political party closely akin in its organization, methods, political philosophy and social appeal to the Nazi and Fascist parties.  It was formed out of the membership and following of the former Irgun Zvai Leumi, a terrorist, right-wing, chauvinist organization in Palestine.

Several Americans of national repute have lent their names to welcome his visit.  It is inconceivable that those who oppose fascism throughout the world, if correctly informed as to Mr. Begin’s political record and perspectives, could add their names and support to the movement he represents.

[…] The public avowels of Mr. Begin’s party are no guide whatever to its actual character. Today they speak of freedom, democracy and anti-imperialism, whereas until recently they openly preached the doctrine of the Fascist state.  It is in its actions that the terrorist party betrays its real character; from its past actions we can judge what it may be expected to do in the future.

The Deir Yassin incident exemplifies the character and actions of theFreedom Party“

A shocking example was their behavior in the Arab village of Deir Yassin.  This village, off the main roads and surrounded by Jewish lands, had taken no part in the war, and had even fought off Arab bands who wanted to use the village as their base.  On April 9 (THE NEW YORK TIMES), terrorist bands attacked this peaceful village, which was not a military objective in the fighting, killed most of its inhabitants—240 men, women, and children—and kept a few of them alive to parade as captives through the streets of Jerusalem.  Most of the Jewish community was horrified at the deed, and the Jewish Agency sent a telegram of apology to King Abdullah of Trans-Jordan.  But the terrorists, far from being ashamed of their act, were proud of this massacre, publicized it widely, and invited all the foreign correspondents present in the country to view the heaped corpses and the general havoc at Deir Yassin.

[A more detailed description of the Zionist crimes and schemes in Palestine during the 1930s and 40s can be found in Ilan Pappe’s excellent historical analysis: THE ETHNIC CLEANSING OF PALESTINE].

Within the Jewish community they have preached an admixture of  ultranationalism, religious mysticism, and racial superiority.  [this could also serve a description of the NSDAP in the 1930s…]

Like other Fascist parties they have been used to break strikes, and have themselves pressed for the destruction of free trade unions.  In their stead they have proposed corporate unions on the Italian Fascist model.

[ZIONISTS ALSO USE TERROR-METHODS AGAINST NON-COMPLIANT JEWS]

During the last years of sporadic anti-British violence, the IZL and Stern groups inaugurated a reign of terror in the Palestine Jewish community.  Teachers were beaten up for speaking against them, adults were shot for not letting their children join them.  By gangster methods, beatings, window-smashing, and wide-spread robberies, the terrorists intimidated the population and exacted a heavy tribute.  

[…]

It is inconceivable that those who oppose fascism throughout the world, if correctly informed about Mr.Begins political record, could lend their names and support to the movements he represents. Before irreparable damage [..] is done,… and the creation of the impression in Palestine that a large segment of America support fascist elements in Israel, the American public must be informed as to the record and objective of Mr. Begin and his government.

The discrepancies between the bold claims now being made by Begin and his party, and their record of past performance in Palestine bear the imprint of no ordinary political party.  This is the unmistakable stamp of a Fascist party for whom terrorism (against Jews, Arabs, and British alike), and misrepresentation are means, and a “Leader State” is the goal. “

(Einstein was supposed to become the second president of Israel but said No, thanks ….)

CONFESSIONS IN A DIARY

The first foreign minister of Israel, Moshe Sharett was often shaken by the ruthlessness of the military establishment and worried about the moral deterioration in Israeli society in the 1950s. Here are just a few observations from his diary:

“… the long chain of false incidents and hostilities we have invented, and so many clashes we have provoked ….

“… the narrow-mindedness and short-sightedness of our military leaders” [who] “seem to presume that the State of Israel may-or even must-behave in the realm of international relations according to the laws of the jungle.”

Source:Israel’s Sacred Terrorism

The picture that emerges, is of an Israel wantonly inflicting every possible measure of death and anguish on civilian populations in a mood reminiscent of regimes which neither Mr. Begin nor I would dare to mention by name.”

FASCIST ROOTS DO NOT GO AWAY

Avi Shlaim 2009In January 2009 (when Gaza was suffering under „Operation“ Cast Lead)  the Guardian published an important article by Professor Avi Shlaim which is still worth reading because it exposes the lies, falsification of history and moral hypocrisy of the Israeli government. Here are some very revealing passages:

(Shlaim also uses the “gangster state” quote mentioned above and states that he no longer considers it a „too harsh“ judgement on Israel)

[…] „Israel likes to portray itself as an island of democracy in a sea of authoritarianism. Yet Israel has never in its entire history done anything to promote democracy on the Arab side and has done a great deal to undermine it. Israel has a long history of secret collaboration with reactionary Arab regimes to suppress Palestinian nationalism. Despite all the handicaps, the Palestinian people succeeded in building the only genuine democracy in the Arab world with the possible exception of Lebanon. In January 2006, free and fair elections for the Legislative Council of the Palestinian Authority brought to power a Hamas-led government. Israel, however, refused to recognise the democratically elected government, claiming that Hamas is purely and simply a terrorist organisation.“

[…] „The brutality of Israel’s soldiers is fully matched by the mendacity of its spokesmen. Eight months before launching the current war on Gaza, Israel established a National Information Directorate. The core messages of this directorate to the media are that Hamas broke the ceasefire agreements; that Israel’s objective is the defence of its population; and that Israel’s forces are taking the utmost care not to hurt innocent civilians. Israel’s spin doctors have been remarkably successful in getting this message across. But, in essence, their propaganda is a pack of lies.“

How is it possible that the whole history of a state and its dangerous core ideology  become “a pack of lies” that persists for decades?

(Our journalists know the answer …)

THE  SHADY ROLE OF BRITAIN

Considering that it was the British government  that had issued the “Balfour Declaration” in the first place which enabled the Zionists to claim Palestine as their phony “homeland”, that deranged British military officers (like Orde Wingate) trained the Zionist fighters in what can only be considered terrorist methods against civilians, and that it was Britain that betrayed both the Arabs and the Jews (with false promises), the one-sided accusation against the US (“creating a gangster state in Israel” – though not unfounded) can only be regarded as the result of “selective historical amnesia”.

So when PM David Cameron today puts on a show of moral indignation about the “anti-semitism” of the Labour Party he obviously suffers from the same mental affliction:  ignoring Britain’s (Dr. Frankenstein) role in creating the Zionist monster …

 

Coming Soon – Part 2:   WHAT IS WRONG WITH ZIONISM?

“I will never forgive the Arabs for FORCING US to kill them.  (Golda Meir)

 To understand the endless controversy of Israel it is inevitable to examine what Zionism really is (from a psychological perspective) and how the label “Anti-Semitism” is being used to stigmatize and ostracize critics of the Israeli state to avoid any real public debate about the moral bankruptcy of its leaders …

Greece for Sale

the new fascist dealThis piece (not all of it, the parts about the Nazi roots of the “European Economic Union” and the quotes from William Blum were not included) was originally written as a reply to the article Yanis Varoufakis published in the German Newspaper DIE ZEIT and which he also presented on his blog in English.

I posted it yesterday in the comment section of his blog but it was completely censored, it simply ‘disappeared’. I wonder why ….

My first question was:

If “Grexit” was the alpha and omega of the German Euro-strategy then why did they give it up in the end?

Yanis, I respect your intellectual honesty very much but I think you have been hoodwinked to believe that “Grexit” was planned all along. They knew perfectly well that Syriza wanted to stay in the EMU (apparently) at any cost (as a matter of national honour) so they

had no incentive to give any ground at all. They can continue to make demands, no matter how unreasonable, with no possible political recourse on the part of Syriza. Hence all Greeks .. [became] prisoners of the Eurozone.” (quote from Andrew Ryder).

It was all a huge Machiavellian bluff, a kind of “psyop”: by showing you the “Schäuble-Plan” they instilled fear (also in the other deficit countries) (like the Holy Officium torturers knew that in some cases just showing the victim the gruesome torture tools was enough for a heretic to “recant” or “confess”)and if that was not enough, they counted on another psychological effect: Schäuble’s ostensible determination to “kick Greece out” of the Eurozone (for which there is NO LEGAL basis) would provoke the desired reaction: after accepting the Troika’s draconian, dictatorial terms, PM Tsipras could cling to the somewhat consoling notion that Syriza had at least “foiled” Germany’s humiliating plan.

At the same time the Greek people were subjected to even more economic “shock treatment” (by cutting off liquidity to the Greek banks) and the ultimate humiliation: after the great “OXI”-vote (which gave them for a brief moment a glimmer of hope) “their” government accepted even harsher terms than originally presented by the Troika: Greece is now effectively FOR SALE (at bargain prices …). The message to all left parties (and their voters) in all of Europe is clear:

IT DOES NOT MATTER AT ALL.

You can vote … but you cannot decide …

The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world’s central banks which were themselves private corporations.     Carroll Quigley

 

blum killing hopeIn his book „Killing Hope” William Blum writes about Greece after the US had taken charge (since Britain could no longer afford the cost of neo-colonialism) in 1947. Here are three telling excerpts:

Blum Killing Hope GREECE

The “request” for aid  was written by the State Department but presented to the world as reflecting the wishes of the Greek government:

2 US aid to Greece 1950s

Blum also quotes from a letter to the director of the US “aid-program” in Greece (AMAG), written by then Secretary of State, George Marshall  in 1947 offering the following advice:

3 US aid to Greece 1950s

Talk about the arrogance of power. Today, the unholy “Troika” does not even bother to camouflage the economic dictatorship they impose on Greece since they control the financial weapons as well as public opinion.

We know that during the Cold War the Anglo-American imperial ruling class stopped at nothing to prevent a (coalition) government with a socialist or communist party (and who knows this better than Greeks …UK/US-assisted fascist take-over in 1944, 1967, then the corrupt, US-trained PASOK puppets …etc.) in Western Europe, including NATO-supported terrorism (see “Gladio). This is no longer necessary since the neoliberal, totalitarian economic “ThinkPol” has succeeded in brainwashing European political leaders and journalists to accept the “TINA”-principle. They realize of course that the huge inequality this system produces will generate opposition, even rebellion but the tyranny of finance* has now reached such a stage that resistance seems futile (at least in the Eurozone).

*excerpt: “I had had the opportunity to hear Mr Alexandre Lamfallusy, the leading technocrat tasked with the introduction of the single currency, speak in Tokyo around 1996. He presented his road map. The astonishing aspect was the level of detail. He told us, years in advance, in which European cities the chiefs of central banks and the finance ministers would meet and WHAT THEY WOULD DECIDE; when and where their deputies would meet and WHAT THEY WOULD DECIDE; and where and when the heads of government would meet, and WHAT THEY WOULD DECIDE: month after month of detailed scheduled meetings, with a complete script of pre-ordained outcomes, named after the cities in which the meetings were to take place. His confident presentation made it clear that he expected this script to be followed to the letter. I saw no reason to doubt his words. (Needless to mention, this is what happened).”

(Back to my questions for Yanis Varoufakis): What I do not understand is this: You know perfectly well that the whole design of the Eurozone is crazy (economically unviable) and I am sure that you are aware of the spot-on warnings of Wynne Godley in 1992:

[…] “the power to issue its own money, to make drafts on its own central bank, is the main thing which defines national independence. If a country gives up or loses this power, it acquires the status of a local authority or colony.”

cartoon 2In several interviews I heard you say that the Euro is doomed if no structural reforms are undertaken (and you know they will not come since Germany is not even willing to confront the question let alone change a system (apparently) to its advantage) then why did you support Syriza’s plan to stay in the EMU as Minister of Finance? Why throw away your pride (as a nation and in your case as a brilliant scholar), give up your sovereignty to keep your place on the Titanic? Why did Syriza not explain to the Greek public what the Euro really is (an instrument of political subjugation)?

Einstein once quipped that

‘You cannot solve a problem with the same way of thinking that created it in the first place’.

The (German) idea that you have “to discipline” European governments with the “threat” of being kicked out of the Eurozone (for which there is NO LEGAL basis) to make the stupid fiscal union work is a perfect embodiment of this insight and shows that we are ruled by “idiots”, [Ιδιώτης / idiotikos: “unprofessional, unskilled; not done by rules of art] not intellectually mature people who really engage in politics for the community [democrates].

Hitlers ShadowThe bitter truth is, the EU never was a truly democratic project, in fact its origins can be traced back to the Third Reich “Großraumwirtschaft”. The incredible irony is, that although these plans were based on dictatorial Germany calling the economic shots (with the “Reichsmark” having the hegemonic position the dollar has today and Berlin replacing London as the financial centre), the economic planning was a lot more intelligent and socially just than the Maastricht regime – here are some major points (taken from the book The Tainted Source by John Laughland):

(See also this – 1942: Conference on the European Economic Community)

  • Labour instead of capital must be the economic yardstick.
  • Prices are no longer the regulator of all economic phenomena. Instead, prices are regulated by the state according to the needs of the collectivity (!). (Ferdinand Fried, Professor of Economics)
  • The need for an integrated European clearing-system (regarding the balance of payments) was clearly identified.
  • Primacy should not be accorded to the exchange rate, instead full employment and purchasing power stability should be the primary goals of currency management … (Dr. Bernhard Benning / The State Theory of Money)
  • Walter Funk was defending the need for state control of foreign exchange to prevent uncontrollable capital flows from disturbing the economy; He realized that in order to establish the greatest possible degree of economic and political autarky, a monetary regime would have to be set up to protect Europe from “uncontrollable international” influences that “could be used as power-political instruments to suppress us
  • To maintain currency stability, price controls and the control of credit (!) were considered necess British commentators criticized the German “hostility to the Gold standard” (and for good reason…), called their ideas “totalitarian” as opposed to economic “liberalism”, the “free-market”-scam, etc.

Well, by now we should realize that nothing is more “totalitarian” than neo-liberalism (with the “market” as cover for plutocratic rule by bankers and their rich clients)

  • Gold became irrelevant once prices were determined not by the market but by governments which regulated all economic activity and once trade was managed through clearing arrangements.
  • Francis Delaisi, an ardent opponent of the gold standard, hated “the reign of money” and was convinced that the economic history of Europe after 1918 had shown the capitalist system to be on the verge of collapse. He rightly argued that the explosion of credit between 1919-29 in the US had led to the crash of 1929, and that the consequent depression had brought massive unemployment in the Anglo-Saxon economies. This threatened to destroy the entire social structure in Europe. (sound familiar?)
  • In Delaisi’s view the gold standard restricted social progress, because (being a world currency), it opened labour markets to world competition and thereby forced down wages .. he considered it to be an “instrument of inhumane competition”. It was important to liberate producers from the competition of exotic countries whose standard of living was too low … (Hitler abolished the gold-standard as soon as he came to power).
  • Capitalism is a political system based on class interests triumphing over those of the community as a whole.

(I never understood where the “socialist” part (in National-Socialist) came from – how could an extreme right, fascist, corporate-friendly party be ‘socialist’ at the same time? Now I get the picture …)

To be clear: I am not endorsing far-right parties here at all but I want to make the point that the rule of “the free market” (serving as a cover for the financial aristocracy) is no less authoritarian than what the Nazis had planned, it is a totalitarian system – just look at what is happening in Greece. There is no ‘agreement’ here, this was pure mafia-style coercion (a ‘reverse Corleone’ someone called it): accept or bury your economy.

So it seems they took the fascist plan for a European “Union”, got rid of the “socialist” part (commanded by the state) and replaced it with the totalitarian market-regime (still favouring Berlin). Dictatorial economic “rules” that must be adhered to – at all cost – (some are more equal here than others as we have seen, since Germany and France were the first countries to violate the Maastricht rules but no ‘punishment’ was meted out to them) should evoke huge resistance but presenting these rules as “necessary” adjustments to which there is no alternative (except economic isolation and bankruptcy) has succeeded in blaming the victims for the crime … the “market” has become the new Hitler … the banks the new weapons of mass (social) destruction .. the governments the willing executioner of a neo-feudal ideology (“neo-liberalism”).

Paul Krugman noted in an interview that the German word for debt (Schulden) is almost synonymous with the German word for guilt (Schuld) and speculated how this would influence German thinking …

 

StiglitzJoe Stiglitz recently wrote about the problems in the Eurozone (and the Greek drama within it):

That concern for popular legitimacy is incompatible with the politics of the eurozone, which was never a very democratic project. Most of its members’ governments did not seek their people’s approval to turn over their monetary sovereignty to the ECB. When Sweden’s did, Swedes said no. They understood that unemployment would rise if the country’s monetary policy were set by a central bank that focused single-mindedly on inflation (and also that there would be insufficient attention to financial stability). The economy would suffer, because the economic model underlying the eurozone was predicated on power relationships that disadvantaged workers.

Yes, this is the key point: economic policy and financial control are about POWER RELATIONSHIPS not mathematical models that have nothing to do with the real world. Steve Keen makes fun of the fact that banks and credit play no role in neoclassical economic models (and rightly so) but I now think this was no “mistake” or oversight, this was done on purpose … to hide the role of banks, finance as power-players in the economy … (they even invented a FAKE NOBEL prize to glorify the fancy mathematics that passes as “econometrics”)

If the consequences for the Greek people – and all of us in Europe – were not so dire, this whole charade (“of debt negotiations”) would be laughable. A kind of sinister, political farce, written by Kafka (“the institutions”) and directed by Orwell (Eurogroup should change its name to “MINISTRY OF TRUTH”.

I leave the last words to Guido Preparata (author of Conjuring Hitler, a very distressing exposé about the rise of Hitler, financed by Anglo-American money …. and encourage you to think about what the role of the US oligarchy in all of this Euro-Game is ….)

So-called democracy is a sham, the ballot a travesty. In modern bureaucratized systems whose birth dates from the mid 19th century, the feudal organization has been carried to the next level, so to speak. A chief objective of what Thucydides referred to in his epoch as synomosiai (literally “exchange of oaths”) – i.e. the out-of-sight fraternities acting behind the ruling clans – has been the process of the exaction of rents from the population (i.e. a free income in the form of rents, financial charges and like thefts) as unfathomable and impenetrable as possible. The tremendous sophistication, and the propagandistic wall of artfully divulged misconceptions surrounding the banking systems which is the chief instrument wherewith the hierarchs expropriate and control the wealth of their supporting community, is the limpid testimony of this essential transformation undergone by the feudal / oligarchic organization in the modern era.

The West has moved from a low-tech agrarian establishment built upon the backs of disenfranchised serfs to a highly mechanized post-industrial hive that feeds off the strength of no less disenfranchised blue- and white collar slaves, whose lives are mortgaged to buy into the vogue of modern consumption. The latter-day lords of the manor are no longer seen demanding tribute since they have relied on the mechanics of banking accounts for the purpose, whereas the sycophants of the median class, as academics and publicists, have consistently remained loyal to the synomosiai.

P.S.

From the “Agreement” with the Troika (page 5):

The government NEEDS TO CONSULT AND AGREE with the institutions ON ALL DRAFT LEGISLATION in relevant areas with adequate time BEFORE submitting it for public consultation or to Parliament …” !!!!

How could Alexis Tsipras even contemplate to sign this capitulation to the “modern dictatorship of money”?! If Greece wants to regain her dignity she MUST get out of the Euro (and NATO) and prevent the BIG SALE of her assets before it is too late …

AND FINALLY ….WHAT ABOUT THIS?

Tulane University oil expert David Hynes told an audience in Athens recently that Greece could potentially solve its entire public debt crisis through development of its new-found gas and oil. He conservatively estimates that exploitation of the reserves already discovered could bring the country more than €302 billion over 25 years. The Greek government instead has just been forced to agree to huge government layoffs, wage cuts and pension cuts to get access to a second EU and IMF loan that will only drive the country deeper into an economic decline. [4]

Ukraine: Nightingale and Mockingbird

Nazis Made in USAI have written 150 articles on my German blog and did not have the time to write much on this site thinking that there are already a billion English bloggers  so who is going to read one more?

But the events in Ukraine are so important to the course of history (they might lead to WW III) and our understanding of Eurasian geopolitics that I have decided to post this article. Especially the Neo-Nazi massacre in Odessa which the German media has  ignored is a good reason to share my thoughts and the information I have gathered in the last months also with an English speaking audience.

The following essay was originally not written as a blog-post but as a series of replies to articles by Robert Parry (on Ukraine) who is an excellent journalist of the highest integrity. So debating some of his arguments or commenting on his perspective is a welcome change from the rubbish our mainstream “churnalists” turn out every day.

Yes, the government in Kiev is a fascist government and yes, there are Neo-Nazi storm / shock troops who have spread fear and terror since the Putsch “government” was installed in Kiev. So when Putin is referring to these facts it has nothing to do with “Russian propaganda to destablize Ukraine”.

US and British support for old and New Nazis goes back to the 1920s and many books have been written about that but I start here with 1945.  I was taught in school that “America” saved us from fascism but I know now that this was just another Big Lie .. Read on to understand why …

THE  ‘FIRE  VICTIMS’  STORY

The trade union building Odessa was not engulfed in flames as many media reports suggested

Robert, you write important articles about Ukraine but regarding the “fire victims” storyline you are misinformed. Most of the people in the labour union building in Odessa DID NOT DIE as a RESULT of the FIRE. The fire served only to DISTRACT ATTENTION from what was really going on inside: a Massacre in the style of a Nazi-Pogrom:

Isn’t it remarkable, that on the same day, May 2 in 1933 Hitler’s private armies, the SA and SS stormed labour union buildings all over Germany and deported the unionists to concentration camps? (some of them were tortured and killed). Given the knowledge I have gathered about the historical roots of the “ultra-nationalist” parties in Ukraine (codeword for Neo-Nazi) I find it extremely unlikely that the events in Odessa were happening on the same day in May just as a coincidence …

(WARNING: the following links contain graphic material of murder victims in Odessa)

Photos of the victims in Odessa show that the people were strangled with cables, shot in the head, or beaten to death. Their bodies were then dosed with an inflammable substance to hide the real cause of death. As some corpses clearly show because they are only partially burned (sometimes only the head and shoulders) while the rest of the body (including the clothes) are almost untouched.

You are also (unintentionally, I am sure) misleading the readers when you mention how under Reagan close ties were formed with Neo-Nazi groups in Latin America including the funding and training of “death-squads” against the rebellious poor. While this is certainly true, US-support for old and new Nazis goes back much further.

mykola-lebedIn 1945 tens of thousands of Nazi war criminals were brought to the US under the guise of the status as “displaced persons”. One of them, Mykola Lebed (see photo on the left) had been the head of the Ukrainian Gestapo “SB” (fused with a paramilitary group named UPA, which committed unspeakable atrocities against Poles in Volnya (100,000 victims) and also against the Jewish population.

The immigration authorities tried to block this because Lebed had been sentenced for planning the murder of the Polish Interior Minister in 1934 but the CIA and the DOJ intervened several times to ensure that this Nazi war-criminal (CIC files describe him as “known sadist and Nazi-collaborator) could not only enter the US but became a US citizen in no time.

Dulles letter LebedAllen Dulles personally wrote a letter to the DOJ to stress how important this man was for the CIA and that it must be guaranteed that his movements in and out of the US would not attract media spotlight to avoid drawing attention on the “operations” he was involved in.

When blood is up to the knee then the Ukraine will be free

(battle-chant of the “Banderas”, UPA members)

The US government not only protected these war criminals and Nazis for decades against prosecution but also supported a propaganda network to whitewash their crimes during the war. In return these people were (not only) employed to demonize the role of the Soviet Union (during and after the war) which – in reality – had saved Europe and the Ukraine from the evil reign of the Nazis (with 27 million “Russians” left dead).

The CIA used these criminals to “keep the flame of nationalism alive” (in the Baltics and especially in Ukraine).

Americas_Nazi_SecretSee also the book America’s Nazi Secret by John Loftus (fmr. “renegade” attorney for the DOJ; interviews with Loftus are also available on YouTube)

and Russ Bellant for the entanglement of the Republican Party with the old and new Nazis from the Baltic States and Ukraine.

It is now clear to me that the evil seed of Nazism, sown by the Anglo-American power elites after WWI (to set Germany and Russia against each other as in divide et impera) and never weeded out after WWII but instead “used” for Cold War purposes has now come into full bloom again … the UPA in Ukraine is back … another “indigenous monster” created by the puppet masters for their own geo-political games (like “Gladio” in Europe or Al Qaeda in the Caucasus, the ME and now Africa…)

God help us against these crazy, self-righteous bastards who run the “foreign policy” of the only “superpower” on this planet, and my sincerest apologies to the Russians for the treatment their president gets in our (German and English speaking) despicable media.

(Pt. II reply to an earlier article about what “Obama can do to save Ukraine” with some new material added)

THE  BRILLIANT ACT OF HYPNOSIS

“It never happened. Nothing ever happened. Even while it was happening it wasn’t happening. It didn’t matter. It was of no interest. The crimes of the United States have been systematic, constant, vicious, remorseless, but very few people have actually talked about them. You have to hand it to America. It has exercised a quite clinical manipulation of power worldwide while masquerading as a force for universal good. It’s a brilliant, even witty, highly successful act of hypnosis.”

Source: Harold Pinter Nobel Prize Lecture “Art, Truth and Politics” , 2005 (second half of the text beginning with “Political language …)

feeling us values(Pinter’s analysis is in my opinion the masterkey to understanding how  the US is controlling the fawning media in Europe and the US who are admiring the Naked Emperor while ignoring his crimes …)

Back to Ukraine and Robert Parry:

These people [the foreign policy establishment] are not able to “recognize the complex reality of Ukraine” because they live in a fantasy world where their support for a gargantuan, aggressive military-industrial-intelligence-machine of endless war and destruction needs to be justified by the existence of a “Manichean devil”. These devils have been created with massive financial assistance from Wall Street (which includes London bankers) since 1900 first with the Bolsheviks, then Hitler and the NSDAP as the most prominent examples.

After 1945 the Bolsheviks morphed in no time from former allies into the “Evil Empire” of the Soviet Union which served for 45 years as the psychological projection screen for capitalism’s own systemic crimes against humanity.

So all the massacres, subversions, overthrows of elected governments, economic, psychological, political and “kinetic” warfare – in other words the enormous suffering brought on millions of people – could be justified as “necessary defense against a threat to our liberty”.

(On the self-indoctrination of  the “national security managers” during the Cold War see the brilliant book IDEAL  ILLUSIONS by James Peck)

With the demise of the SU the “devil” had apparently disappeared so on “9/11” they created a new one:Terrorism”.

It had to be “Islamic” terrorism to have a pretext for invading, plundering and destroying the few countries with energy resources in the Middle East, which still cling to the absurd notion that they have a right of self-determination in economic and political affairs AND have the audacity to expose Israel as a Rogue State with WMDs.

THE  BATTLE  FOR  EURASIA

Ring_Around_Russia-smNow as the (ZB™) foreign policy “pivot” has shifted towards Asia, “Eurasia” has (once again) become the focal point for “intervention” of all sorts. Russia has been surrounded with NATO bases and Orwellian “missile shields”. Most governments of the Baltic States and the former SU in Eastern Europe are now US “clients”. Russia was looted by Western companies and Eastern oligarchs when the corrupt drunkard Yeltsin was in power. When he brought out the tanks against his own parliament (which tried to stop the looting) the West said nothing and Wall Street applauded.

The corrupt but democratically elected Yanukovich tried to establish Ukraine as a neutral (non-aligned) power between Russia and US / NATOstan (formerly known as Europe) and realizing, that a “co-operation treaty” with the EU would ruin the (already weak) country, he opted for economic cooperation with Russia.

Then the CIA-controlled (Gladio style) Neo-Nazi hordes were let loose on the “Maidan” (in addition to the – carefully prepared and executed – ongoing civil society subversion with NGOs operating under the guise of “democracy promotion” à la Gene Sharp / the Albert Einstein Institute (front) and others) to get rid of Yanukovich. This was presented to the world as a “democratic revolution”.

Oleh Tyanybok leader of the “Svoboda” party (original name: Social nationalist party of Ukraine

The new, handpicked Brown-Shirt government (which includes Neo-liberals and Neo-Nazis, two sides of the same coin) – with a neoliberal banker as president – has difficulties to hide the fanatic, racist “nationalism” of its foot-soldiers and ideologues who want an “ethnically-pure” Ukraine and were brainwashed to hate everything “Russian”.

Like the Pavlovian dogs, they salivate every time they hear (or say) the derogatory term for Russians: “Moskal’s” and direct their irrational hatred on the imagined Triplet-enemy: Russian-Jew-Communist (this is exactly what Hitler also did to incite ethnic hatred for political purposes)

MORAL ILLUSIONS

Robert, have you realized that these crazies who are in charge of “foreign policy” HAVE TO “exclude the nasty reality of what has actually occurred (not just] in Ukraine” in order to keep up the fantasy that they are the good guys representing a “good” country which stands for democracy and freedom …? You really cannot discuss the motives of US “foreign policy” without the help of a psychiatrist ….

So of course neither Obama nor anyone else of these psychopaths would ever “admit” (neither to themselves nor to the public) what they are actually doing: committing unspeakable crimes and violating every rule of human decency that was ever invented.

warispeaceThey don’t want to “bring this crisis under control” …they CREATED it … they need wars and conflicts of all sorts because it gives them the feeling of power and the “Neo-Con” (more “con” than “neo”) disciples of Leo Strauss and Nietzsche regard WAR as the ultimate – and even noble – expression of political power, of the “right of the superior” to subjugate and destroy “the inferior”.

(And please do not use the word “conspiracy theory” when you mean “pretext” … it is a stigma-word to immunize oneself against valid arguments by denigrating the persons who use these arguments … and is really aimed at the audience  … but in this case there are no “valid” arguments as you perfectly know …)

Putin has to become the new “devil” since he is the only one available and strong enough for this role in the Great Game” of getting Eurasia (energy-wise) under control AND because he has started to subvert the dollar-hegemony (huge gas /trade deals with China to be paid in their own respective currencies) … AND there is a project of the BRICS countries to create their own “development bank” in order to evade the tyranny of the US-led IMF banking cartel.

CHARACTER ASSASSINATION or Attack is the Best Defense

Of course, students of the (real history) of American foreign policy know that US elites have no credibility whatsoever and their moral posture lecturing other leaders about democracy and freedom is utterly ridiculous and hypocritical. But you can seemingly elevate you own moral status by denigrating your opponent with a massive “strategic information” campaign in order to demonize this person in the eyes  of the public.

Putin smilingSo they are going to destroy Putin’s credibility so that no matter what he says or what he does, the audience must be conditioned to shudder at the mere mention of his name, or when they hear the adjective “pro-Russian” framed in the context of aggression and violence (parotted in the news in Germany 24/7) .

Your are right, Putin wants to be respected as a statesman and he wants even more respect for Russia which he brought back from the brink of ruin to a major player in world affairs – but no empire.

27 Million “Russians” died in WWII, the soldiers among them had defeated 90% of the German Wehrmacht divisions at the horrible Eastern Front while we were taught in history lessons that “America” has saved us from fascism. What a cruel joke.

Hitlers ShadowIt was “America” (as the new version of the British Empire) that protected the worst Nazi criminals from prosecution and used them to build their “Intelligence” agencies and new networks of subversion and terror in Latin America and in Europe. (The “American people” had of course no say in the matter …)

So Putin is right, when “he has come to view the U.S. government and the EU as sources of endless double standards and double talk, places without honour” – that’s what they are … predatory finance and capitalism have no “honour” .. it does not pay …

You mentioned JFK’s American university address: (with this speech his signed his death warrant) There is one simple sentence in it which I find extremely important:

“I also believe that we must re-examine our own attitude – as individuals and as a Nation- for our attitude is as essential as theirs.”

Self-reflection is a normal and necessary thing for grown-up, intelligent people but can anyone imagine a member of the US power establishment saying these words today in public? No way.

Robert, in your article you are finally wondering “whether Obama can pick up Kennedy’s torch of peaceful understanding” and see the world through the eyes of the other side, etc.

These people live in another moral universe than the rest of us … in it there is no place “for peaceful understanding” only dominance for the “chosen” ones and subservience for the others.

The US Empire is built on massive self-deception and a moralizing, crusading ethos to legitimate the crimes of aggression against the rest of the world.

As Shakespeare wrote in Hamlet, self-honesty is the basis for moral actions toward others … “and as the day follows the night, thou canst not then be false to any other man” (if I remember the words correctly).

“Talks” about one or the other crisis are meaningless when the only superpower is utterly dishonest … I really feel sorry for Sergei Lavrov who has to sit at the “negotiating table” with these double-dealing hypocrites …

William Blum puts it in a nutshell:

(Dear children), US foreign policy does not mean well …  But when will the “churnalists” get that?
