Telling The Goyim How To Talk About Israel

“But one must be at least a Jew to tell the goyim how they may or may not talk about Israel.”

Bret Stevens

That’s pretty much what the whole Plame/Giraldi brouhaha is all about.

1. Bret Stephens is in such a tizzy it is actually almost enjoyable. Going after Plame and Giraldi this week he attacks damn near everyone else too that he has a problem with. He has problems with an awful lot of people. 

“I believe the thesis of “The Israel Lobby,” the 2007 book by Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer, is a sound one. The idea that a small group of (largely) Jewish-Americans manipulates Congress, the media and other levers of power and influence for the benefit of a malign Jewish state has no connection to previous anti-Semitic conspiracy theories alleging the same thing.”

Of course he does not believe this, he is implying, if not outright saying, that Walt and Mearsheimer are anti-Semites for documenting the obvious. I remember well being told by one of my US senators to my face that the power of the Israeli lobby in Congress is overwhelming, but I digress. 

“I believe Valerie Plame, the former C.I.A. operative and fading liberal celebrity, when she says she missed the anti-Semitic “undercurrents” in an article she called “provocative, but thoughtful.” I believe her when she says she “zeroed in on the neocon criticism” but missed the article’s more prejudicial elements.”

Yes, and we here at Mantiq al-Tayr believe that neocon zionists want what’s best for America and the world. 

“The article was titled “America’s Jews Are Driving America’s Wars.” It uses variants of the word “Jew” 22 times. The word “neocons” appears only twice. I believe Plame is telling the truth when she says the subtlety was lost on her.”

2. Back in April of 2003 – don’t you miss the good old days when wars for Israel were still fresh? But I digress. Anyway, as I was saying, back in April of 2003 Haaretz published an article entitled “White Man’s Burden.” The article opens with the following sentence.

“The war in Iraq was conceived by 25 neoconservative intellectuals, most of them Jewish, who are pushing President Bush to change the course of history.” 

Okay, I can hear you all saying “Mantiq, wtf does this mean?” 

It means, ladies and gentlemen, that Phil Giraldi had to be fired from The American Conservative and demonized by exactly the same people he named in his now famous article entitled “America’s Jews Are Driving America’s Wars.”  In the article he gets very specific and of course does not say that all Jews do this. He goes after the neocon cockroaches that infest the corridors of power in the US and who put Israel’s interests ahead of those of the US as casually as Trump talks trash about women. 

The uproar this is causing is, well, informative. 

He had the audacity to say that these neocons are usually Jews and that such people should recuse themselves from, among other things, getting the US into all sorts of shitty wars that do not benefit the United States. For his efforts he has been vilified by exactly the same people he was calling out. What a surprise.  The American Conservative should be ashamed. 

It’s really too bad Phil doesn’t have a book out right now, because he has gotten so much negative publicity that he’d probably make the Jerusalem Washington New York Times Post best seller list. But once again, I digress.

Here’s one of the really awful things he noted:

“One might also add that neocons as a group were founded by Jews and are largely Jewish, hence their universal attachment to the state of Israel. They first rose into prominence when they obtained a number of national security positions during the Reagan Administration and their ascendancy was completed when they staffed senior positions in the Pentagon and White House under George W. Bush. Recall for a moment Paul Wolfowitz, Doug Feith, and Scooter Libby. Yes, all Jewish and all conduits for the false information that led to a war that has spread and effectively destroyed much of the Middle East. Except for Israel, of course. Philip Zelikow, also Jewish, in a moment of candor, admitted that the Iraq War, in his opinion, was fought for Israel.”

Let me digress for a moment. You might recall that Zelikow was executive director of the commission that looked into 9/11.

And it might even be true that when Zelikow was made executive director of that commission no one knew that he had been:

(Note to Shas Party members,  all red highlighting is by today’s guest editor, Mulaykah al-Alamaniyya.)

the author of a very important document issued by the White House in September 2002 that really turned military doctrine on it’s head and said that the United States could become involved in preemptive war, preemptive defense. That we could attack a nation that didn’t pose an immediate military threat to this country. And obviously in September of 2002 it sure appeared that that document was being written with one target in mind: Iraq.”

Isn’t that pretty fucking interesting? All the tuyuur here at Mantiq al-Tayr thought so too. 

Let me summarize this for all the brain-dead Jerusalem Washington New York Times Post readers.  The very guy who said out loud that the Iraq war was fought for Israel is the guy who drafted a White House document justifying preemptive war and of which Iraq was the target. 

But it gets worse, with Zionism it always does. 

End of digression.

One of the Israeli PR specialists Giraldi named was Bret Stephens whose pro-Israel resume is longer than long dong silver’s (fake) dong. 

Among Stephen’s accomplishments was heading the Jerusalem Post back in 2002. As this largely fawning article notes:

“He began his career at The Wall Street Journal, but moved to Israel at age 28 to become editor-in-chief of The Jerusalem Post in 2002 during a tumultuous time. He led the Post through the worst years of the second intifada, pointed it in a neoconservative direction . . .”

This article points out that he left that position to come to back to the US in order to advocate for Israel. 

“One of the reasons I left The Wall Street Journal for the Post was because I felt the Western media was getting the story wrong,” Stephens said. “I do not think Israel is the aggressor here. Insofar as getting the story right helps Israel, I guess you could say I’m trying to help Israel.”

So that’s his job – advocating for Israel. Keep that in mind whenever you read him or even worse, hear him. 

Also, keep this in mind: for Stephens, anti-Zionism and anti-semitism are synonyms

as he says here:

Stephens: We should remember that anti-Semitism is a mutating virus that changes forms to suit the times. The hatred of Jews based on religious reasons became anti-Semitism based on racial reasons, which in our day has become anti-Zionism based on national reasons. But each of them are expressions of the same hatred.

This is complete, total, unadulterated, Zionist Bullshit and it is designed to prevent Americans from understanding a key ingredient regarding “Why America acts so goddamn crazy.” If you happen to notice what the fuck is going on and point it out to others, you are subject to attacks which among other things point to the accuracy of your thesis. 

Do you want war with Iran? Giraldi doesn’t either and he is aware that the US war machine isn’t just composed of neocons in government and the media, though he does not list all of the culprits here. 

“To be sure, the urging to strike Iran comes from many quarters, to include generals in the Administration who always think first in terms of settling problems through force, from a Saudi government obsessed with fear over Iranian hegemony, and, of course, from Israel itself.”

He then writes:

“But what makes the war engine run is provided by American Jews who have taken upon themselves the onerous task of starting a war with a country that does not conceivably threaten the United States. They have been very successful at faking the Iranian threat, so much so that nearly all Republican and most Democratic congressmen as well as much of the media seem to be convinced that Iran needs to be dealt with firmly, most definitely by using the U.S. military, and the sooner the better.”

Stephens likes the idea of bombing Iran. And I guess to prove his point that it isn’t just neocon Jews who push for this, he did he did a masterful job convincing a bunch of  zionist Christian morons to work to undermine the nuclear deal with Iran, a deal which he wanted killed. The outfit is John Hagee’s “Christians United For Israel” and Stephens spoke candidly with them as he most likely didn’t think his comments would see the light of day. However, Glenn Greeenwald published the entire content of Stephens conference call with CUFI which I just realized is IFUC spelled backwards. 

The single most amazing thing about Stephens’ discussion with the CUFI folks was the utter obsequiousness of the CUFI board members when they spoke to Stephens and his awareness that he was in complete control. He was telling the goyim what Israel wanted them to think about Iran and they just sucked it up. It’s worth listening to for that reason alone. 

As Greenwald notes in the article – and he is speaking strictly about neocons:

They want to keep Iran isolated and demonized and ultimately to depose its leadership through war or other means of aggression. They hate the Iran deal precisely because it’s likely to avert that aggression and normalize the world’s relations with that country, making the war they’ve long craved much less likely.”

Amen, brother, Amen.

3. I’ll close with this:

Eli Clifton wrote this report about Bret Stephens speaking at a Tikvah Fund gathering, Stephens had this to say about many of his fellow Jews:

Thank God I was born a Jew because otherwise I’d be a raging anti-Semite… [be]cause I tear my hair out all the time at my fellow Jews. But rare is it in history that we’ve been blessed to live in a country where we can say anything we want and actually get away with it. And it is a scandal, it seems to me, if we fail to live up to the promise of our American citizenship to do all we can to assure the survival of the Jewish state and the Jewish people.

Clifton’s comments on the above comment are worth taking a look at.

False Flaggots

1. After taking a huge break from even occasional blogging I come back to see that nothing has really changed. The zionist industrial complex (ZIO) has most Americans on one side or another of a host of stupid issues, perhaps the stupidest is the issue about a flag. Really? Any American who thinks that the issue is about Trump versus Kaepernick and worshipping a towel very likely made in China is at best an unwitting participant in an absolutely zionist bullshit issue (ZBI).  This is a hoax people, wake the fuck up.

I suggest that the NFL and Trump – and many of the NFL owners support this guy – try an experiment. Instead of having the national anthem played while the American flag is flying right before every meaningless football game to instead have the band play Ha-Tikvah and have the Israeli flag flying instead. (And then have a bunch of American-made Israeli F-16s, fly over the stadium and drop a bomb on some Palestinian children.) Then let the games begin.

Let’s see who says what then. I wonder what the Vegas odds (does it bother you that a town entirely based on crime plays such a huge roll in your sports entertainment? No, I didn’t think so, but I digress) – say an over and under – would be for the number of Hillary people who would protest in the US? You get one guess, Shas party members get two.

Now,  now, I can hear you all saying “But Mantiq, don’t you think that is really over the top? We know you like to exaggerate for effect, but good fucking grief Mantiq, do really think that the Israeli planes would drop only one bomb on those Palestinian children? You’ve got to be kidding. In fact, it would be even cooler if you added some Lebanese kids to the mix.”

Okay, well you have a point. I just don’t want to get Giraldi-ed. But yeah, you are probably right. More on the Giraldi issue in an upcoming post.

2. Why the fuck do you think that the anthem is played before sports events and why do so many children have to say the pledge of allegiance every day in school? They are turning you into flag-worshippers, flaggots,  to keep your asses enthralled with the ZIO and only talking about utterly meaningless issues while you and your children are victimized by these assholes.  Let me tell you where the anthem is not played all the time and where the pledge of allegiance is not said every day – in fact damn near never. Do you think the folks in the intelligence community – those 16 or more outfits usually with three letters attached – recite the fucking pledge every day? Hell no. And I mean hell no. Do you think they play the national anthem all the time – except on certain occasions like when they reward personnel for whatever management has misunderstood about what they were actually doing in their jobs. Otherwise, fucking forget it.

But Johnny has to say the pledge in school every day even though they can’t legally make him do it. And when you take him to a pro football game or a baseball game you both get to stand up for the anthem and if you don’t, then you are some sort of son of a bitch. The guy behind you will insult you,  you will turn around and punch him in the face, he’ll put out a knife, you will pull out your licensed concealed handgun and blow him away, and neither Trump nor Hillary will give a fucking shit about you or him. They never have and they never will.

3. الحب. Love. All of the male tuyuur here at Mantiq al-Tayr have become the Majnun to the Layla of the blogosphere. The gorgeous, brilliant, witty, sarcastic scribe from the land of Oz, Caitlin Johnstone. At once exotic yet familiar, so far away, yet so near to their hearts. Humble and charming to the woke, a thunder clasp to those who are asleep, she fears not any critic. She’s also funny as hell sometimes.

And damn she is distracting the hell out of them. I can’t get them to read anyone else. I’m getting no fucking help with my research anymore, so I tasked them with collecting some excerpts from her blogs for this post. Suddenly I got some cooperation.

So here are a few excerpts from recent posts along with the links. Note to Shas party members, there is no need for red highlighting here as all of them should be savored – in fact they should be read aloud in coffee-shops around the world.

Enjoy.

“It baffles me how some people can continue to say that Donald Trump is politically inept and doesn’t understand how Washington works. He crushed both the Bush and Clinton dynasties on his path to election, he’s got a significant and heavily-armed support base willing to literally fight and die for him if he’s ever impeached, and his ability to use wedge issues to manipulate support puts even David Brock to shame. His political bullshitting IQ is off the charts. He was born for this.”

(The above are the opening lines of her take on the flag issue.)

“Fourth, the notion that “the free world is counting” on the US for leadership is moronic flag-waving, chest-pounding bullshit.”

“The Real Reason Hillary Can’t Just Shut The Fuck Up And Go Away”

(such a great title for a post)

“I’ve hyperlinked the aforementioned names to their respective Twitter accounts in the preceding paragraph for you. You’ll see them babbling about Russia, DACA, “Teflon Don” whatever the fuck that is, but you won’t see anything about the Senate’s vote to leave unbridled military force authorization in the hands of a president they assure us is a traitor, a madman, and a barely-closeted Nazi.”

“If you oppose the expansionism of the US war machine (and I insist that you’ve got no right to call yourself part of the left unless you do), then establishment Democrats are not your friends. Their whole McResistance is a farce designed to herd Democrats back into the stables of the neoliberal neoconservative one-party system, not to oppose Trump.”

“Don’t do this, please. This is bad thinking and bad behavior. US foreign policy isn’t made less evil by your pointing out the fact that Kim Jong Un is not Mahatma Gandhi. We already know he isn’t (he has a completely different arrangement of letters in his name), and nobody benefits from your interrupting the dialogue with this obvious fact while the grownups are talking.

“The US war machine lies constantly. The US war machine kills people to advance the agendas of war profiteers, oligarchs and neoconservative ideologues. None of the statements I just made are disputable, and none of them are nullified by the fact that there are other bad people who may also be doing bad things.”

“The idea, I guess, is to try and blame Trump’s opportunistic tweets about the DNC election results for the anger that progressives have been expressing over being used as toilet paper by the Democratic establishment again and again and again.”

“Besides the fact that she (Hillary) keeps making an absolute ass of herself whenever she rears her plastic head, more revelations have come to light since the election which prove that those of us who fought her tooth and claw were absolutely right to do so. Here are three of them.”

“For all of Trump’s idiocy both foreign and domestic, he has been vastly more restrained in Syria than Clinton promised to be. Even as recently as April she was still saying that Trump needed to destroy the very air force that Syria is using to defeat ISIS, Al Nusra and the other violent jihadist factions who oppose the nation’s only legitimate government.”

4. I found this one on my own. Oh my Layla. 

I pass by these walls, the walls of Layla
And I kiss this wall and that wall
It’s not Love of the walls that has enraptured my heart
But of the One who dwells within them

The USS LIBERTY: 50 Years of Treason and Lies

Page_1

June 7th, 2017 – I am reposting this piece because the 50th anniversary of Israel’s assault on the USS LIBERTY is tomorrow. I’ve updated the title – again – to reflect the number of years gone by.

——————————

Republishing this one 3 years later.  Now it is 49 years of treason and lies, so I changed the headline.  The rest of the post from 2013 is below.

1. It’s hard to believe that it has been 46 years since I first heard the news that the USS LIBERTY had been attacked. 46 years. 46 years of treason and lies.

And look where we are now after all those years. A shell of a country. At least one in six Americans lives at or below the poverty line. But we have more wars than ever and no end in sight.

None.

The image of that piece of shit, John McCain, snuggling up to terrorists in Syria this past week says it all. He and the entire government care much more about terrorists in Syria than about you. Much more. But I digress.

This post is about the USS LIBERTY.

I have restored a number of my previous commemorative posts about the LIBERTY and you can find them on the left side of this page under “Recent Entries”. I also link to them hereherehere and here. Lots of  information in there if you are new to the issue.

I want to call your attention to a remarkable story I heard the other day narrated by Ray McGovern. You can hear McGovern tell that story by clicking here and going to the 16:28 mark of the interview Ray did with Scott Horton. A great USS LIBERTY story, wish I had been at the scene Ray describes when it happened. Ray also puts the LIBERTY massacre in proper context.

I also want to take a moment to talk about the Captain of the LIBERTY, William Loren McGonagle.

He was the son of a share cropper, a man who earned everything he got. A man who after performing acts of quiet heroism having watched many of his men blown to bits, others die slowly and horribly while help did not arrive, and almost all of the rest of his men wounded – including himself – after all this, he sat down in Malta and wrote to the families of each and every man onboard his ship who was murdered on June 8th, 1967 by Israel.  A leader who actually cared about his men. He stood out then, but after 46 years of treason and lies – and of useless, stupid and evil wars – he stands out even more.

McGonagle did not cozy up to terrorists, he fought them. And he won.

Of course, the US government then, as now, was ashamed of Captain McGonagle. Cowering before its master, the government didn’t want anything to do with a hero who guided his broken, battered and bloodied ship to safety using the North Star.

When he was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his heroism in the face of an implacable enemy the US government was afraid to have him come in the front door to accept the award. Instead he was smuggled in through the back door, as if his open presence would shame the sterling reputations of those who had actually contemplated letting his ship sink forever into the Mediterranean.

The back door of the White House? Nope. Normally the medal is presented at the White House, but this time it was presented in the dump known as the Naval Yard. Quite the insult.  Oh, and the President usually is the one who gives the award. Not this time. Linden Baines Johnson was too fucking busy – really he was just too fucking ashamed.

But this wasn’t to be the only time that the President of the United States would in-person snub the USS LIBERTY.  Turns out that George Herbert Walker Bush was too fucking busy too.

Yes, former CIA director, oil company executive, possible JFK conspirator and the architect of the slaughter of God only knows how many Iraqis somehow granted an audience to Captain McGonagle and some of the crew members.

Phil Tourney was there and recounts what happened after close to 50 members of the LIBERTY crew had waited at the White House for over two hours.

“Finally we saw the presidential limousine pull up to the White House. Bush had been at a parade of veterans returning from the First Gulf War which was why he had been late. As the limousine drove by, he waved at us through an open window.

“Our spirits were a mile high. We were on cloud nine and in seventh heaven. This was it, we were sure – or at least our stomachs were, because they were a flurry of butterflies.

“Shortly afterwards, the door from the White House leading out to the Rose-Garden opened and we waited with bated breath for the President to come walking out. Instead, it was Brent Scowcroft, his National Security Advisor and Chief of Staff, John Sununu. both of them were smiling like two cats who had just eat a bowl of mouse soup. . .

“Scowcroft and Sununu, like a duet doing a vaudeville number, informed us the President was “too busy” to meet with us. then, they started “making nice”, shaking our hands, apologizing for the fact that we had been left waiting for two hours – the exact amount of time we were left out there when we were attacked by Israel.

“The disappointment on McGonagle’s face was as unmistakable as if he had been kicked in groin. H was dying inside, we all knew it, although he tried his best to hide it from us. I was sure he would break down in tears, but he did not.”

George Herbert Walker Bush had no problem meeting with sports teams in the White House, but no time for a group of heroes led by a man who earned the Congressional Medal of Honor. It’s not honorable to meet a man who stood up to Israel. It’s a source of shame.

Captain McGonagle was able to hold back the tears on that day, over twenty years after the terrible events of June 8, 1967. Maybe James Scott, the son of one of those heroes, has told us why. Over twenty years earlier:

“Ignatious turned to McGonagle afterward. The secretary of the Navy, against a backdrop of whirring cameras, placed the Medal of Honor around the skipper’s neck. The five-pointed gold star, suspended from a blue ribbon, rested just beneath McGonagle’s chin. The son of a sharecropper-turned-janitor, the man who had guided his ship to safety by the North Star, lowered his head and wept.”

May God bless Captain McGonagle, his men, and all of those who will not forget what LIBERTY is all about.

Act for Israel

 

screen-shot-2017-03-04-at-9-33-38-am

1. Rep. Ron DeSantis (Likud, FL) sure does love Israel. He really loves Israel.  This former legal advisor to Seal Team 6 and haunter of the Joint Task Force in GTMO – and lover of GTMO as far as I can tell, but he loves Israel even more – but I am already digressing.

Okay, where was I?

Yes, this lover of Israel and frequent defender of Israel is doing something right now, and I mean literally right fucking now (RFN) that I want to get to. In a minute.

First let me tell you about the letter he wrote to Trump using his own US Israeli Congressional stationary, telling President to be Trump that he had damn fucking well better move the US Israeli embassy to Jerusalem. You can read the whole letter here on Desantis’ website. Please do note that DeSantis initiated the letter and then got 101 other Israel-suck ups to sign it. Here is an excerpt: (Note to Shas Party members, red-highlighting is done by today’s guest editor Ron Desantis:)

“During your campaign, you made a forceful pledge to move our American (sic) embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, which is the eternal capital of the Jewish people and the State of Israel.”

Hmmm. Let me digress. Since when do we pay for government officials to engage in metaphysics talking about the eternalness of anything? And if it is the capital of all Jews, then does DeSantis think that Jews should be loyal to Israel first – as he is even though he is not a Jew?

Anyway, the letter continues:

We write to express support for this policy and to urge you to take swift action to relocate our (sic) embassy to Jerusalem as soon as you take office. 

Israel is one of the United States’ closest allies and stands alone in the Middle East for its commitment to democratic ideals. Moving the embassy will strenghtn the unique alliance between Israel and the United States and send a clear message to the world that we support Israel in recognizing Jerusalem as its eternal capital.

You can read the whole letter here and see if your congressional rep was one of the signatories.

Not long after that letter was written DeSantis brought up the issue again in this really weird press release.

Washington, DC – Rep. Ron DeSantis (Likud-06), Chairman of the National Security Subcommittee, today convened an Advisory Council for Israel and Middle East Security. Its membership of advisors from Florida and around the country will explore ways to repair U.S.–Israel relations and combat security threats facing Israel and the United States.

“With the pending relocation of our embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and the arrival of the Trump administration, we have entered a new era in American-Israeli relations and have a great opportunity to chart a productive course,” DeSantis said. “My subcommittee conducts oversight over embassy issues and I have been active in highlighting the dangers of the BDS movement and the threat posed by militant Islam. I have no doubt that we will have a lot on our plate moving forward, and having an esteemed group of advisors willing to share their keen insights on these issues will be a great help to me. I thank them for their willingness to assist my efforts to support our friend and ally Israel.”

Nice how he got in the phrase “militant Islam” isn’t it. And of course the anti-BDS theme is there  too along with the let’s move the US embassy to Jerusalem verbiage.

And just to make sure we get the point, the document ends with this:

The Advisory Council for Israel and Middle East Security will help develop policies to help facilitate a more productive American posture in the Middle East, which includes moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Israel’s capital, Jerusalem.

The Adisory Council is a pretty damn long list. Funny how the House’s National Security Subcommittee is in need of an “Advisory Council for Israel and Middle East Security” at all, and second that that council needs to be comprised of only people from Florida with Middle Eastern sounding names. Clearly a bunch of militant Islamists  have taken over the advisory council.

Okay, I can hear you all bitching and moaning “Mantiq, look he has to be this way, he’s in Florida and there you have to be anti-Castro and pro-Israel, though not necessarily in that. order. It’s not like he is advocating that Israel keep the Golan Heights.”

Washington, DC – Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06) issued the following statement of support for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s position that the Golan Heights will remain under the control of Israel:

“For almost 50 years, Israel has maintained peace in the Golan Heights region and I support Prime Minister Netanyahu’s position that Israel should maintain control. If Israel were to cede the Golan Heights the area would become a magnet for terrorism and would give Israel’s enemies a launching pad from which to wage war against the Jewish state.  U.S. policy should support the Prime Minister’s position and recognize the Golan Heights as a part of Israel.”

Now you won’t find this on his website, or on his twitter feed, but Ronny boy is at this very minute on an official National Security Subcommittee-sponsored trip  to Jerusalem to investigate moving the US embassy to Jerusalem. It’s a short trip, just 24 hours and Desantis and his committee seem to be very quiet about it. But when he gets back he’ll continue to put the pressure on Trump.

Please let him know how much you appreciate his working for Israel. Go here:

https://desantis.house.gov/media-center

and you can look in the upper right hand corner for links to his social media sites.

Interesting enough, Rep.  Dennis Ross (Israel Home, Fl), who is reported to also be going on the trip is said to have denied that he is going according to this Press TV link.

2. Okay it is video time. Watch this unbelievable suck up to Israel. Can there be a bigger whore than this guy? Probably, but he does set the bar pretty high. Please make sure there are no children in the room when you watch this.

ِTime for a make up call.

 

Have you registered a Muslim today?

1.A number of the tuyuur here at Mantiq al-Tayr working hand in hand with Vladimir Putin managed to hack into the Trump campaign files and we found the questionnaire Israel is putting together for Muslim registry 2.0. We downloaded the file, changed some of the answers, added a question or two, uploaded it to the same place and replaced the old file. The new version is below for you to go ahead and fill out.  You can then just send it to the Israeli embassy in Washington, DC, or you can wait and send it to the “American” embassy in Jersualem c/o David Friedman.

2. Friedman and Greenblatt’s position paper on Israel.  To buy this horrible thing you have to completely close your eyes to reality.

Just one highlight.  Note to Shas party members, red highlighting is done by today’s guest editor, Ibn Mulaikah.

“The U.S. should view the effort to boycott, divest from, and sanction (BDS) Israel as inherently anti-Semitic and take strong measures, both diplomatic and legislative, to thwart actions that are intended to limit commercial relations with Israel, or persons or entities doing business in Israeli areas, in a discriminatory manner. The BDS movement is just another attempt by the Palestinians to avoid having to commit to a peaceful co-existence with Israel. The false notion that Israel is an occupier should be rejected.

3. Well it’s video time. Not sure what to do here.  How about 3 minutes and 22 seconds of insanity from a Navy Seal turned Tea Party speaker about the Communist and Muslim menace? It is one of the more disgusting things I’ve seen and unfortunately due to the nature of the blogging I have to see lots of disgusting things.  Tell you what, I’ll just give you the link to the Loon Watch article about this guy and that article also has the video and you can watch it if you want to make yourself sick.

http://www.loonwatch.com/2014/01/former-navy-seal-ben-smith-obama-is-a-muslim-drops-quran-to-the-ground/

Hmmmm. I can hear you all saying “Mantiq, that was disgusting, please give us something uplifting and do it fast.”

Okay.  Each year at this time I link to this video. Even if you have seen it before, you will enjoy it. The music is lovely too. I also love the default start frame of this video. Reminds me of two who are very dear, but I digress.

 

 

 

It’s Going To Get Much Worse . . .

 

great-f

“This study is the result of months of analysis, discussion and drafting by a group of top security policy experts concerned with the preeminent totalitarian threat of our time: the legal-political-military doctrine known within Islam as shariah.”

1. Former CIA director, eternal Israel-firster, hater of Muslims, co-author of the document from which the quote above comes, and naturally a Donald Trump advisor, James Woosely, was interviewed on CBC yesterday.  The very first thing he said was that the US needs to get back to sucking up to Israel – as if that had actually been stopped in any real way.  (Note to Shas Party members, red highlighting is done by today’s guest editor, Jesus Christ.) 

Carol Off: What might you recommend to Mr. Trump to take on as a priority?

James Woolsey: Well, I think one of the first priorities is to get straight who our friends and our adversaries are. And I think President Obama got that mixed up.

I think it’s important, for example, to let the world know that Israel is our friend and Iran is not a country that we have a nice, sound nuclear agreement with.

It’s a country which we have signed, in my opinion, the worst international accord the United States has ever signed and Iran will be a nuclear power within a relatively few years and we’re going to have to figure out how to deal with that.

Yup, Israel is his first priority.  Jesus Christ. Oops sorry Jesus.  

Now I can hear you all saying – “Hey there Mantiq, he didn’t say that Trump would cancel the agreement with Iran, so isn’t that good?”

Who the fuck knows.  He did add in the interview that “This agreement has to go.”  I’m sure you will also find the following quote from him about Iran utterly reassuring. 

CO: So if you’re shaking that foreign policy stick, in which directions and which countries might you think Mr. Trump should shake it?

JW: Iran needs to be kept from being the world’s leading terrorist state. We need to move them back several places in that ranking by undermining their terrorist affiliations and actions and financing and all the rest and some of that can be done overtly and some of it needs to be done covertly. I think Iran is one of the greatest dangers to world peace.

The US is bombing seven countries at present and Iran is the greatest threat to world peace? Carol Off should have just fucking hung up the phone. But I digress.

Keep in mind that this person has co-authored a book with the utterly ridiculous title of  “Shariah: The Threat to America” which even the FBI thinks is bullshit

Actually it isn’t a book.  It is a “report” written by, and I am not making this up:

“Team B II” of the right-wing conspiracy oriented Center for Security Policy.  The members of the team read like a list of who’s who in the land of Muslim hating.  Here are some of the members of Team B II.

Jerry Boykin 

Stephen Coughlin

Frank Gaffney

John Guandolo

David Yershalmi

Plus many more utter nut cases.

Will Woosely be but in a position to persecute Muslims in the Trump administration (and I use the term administration quite loosely)?

CO: Would you accept a position if he offered as the national security adviser?

JW: This is an extremely important set of jobs. And I’m not going to get in here and campaign for one. But anybody who is offered something along the lines of one of the two or four top jobs in the government dealing with foreign policy and national security, would have to be honoured.

So this war mongering Israel-firster could become the National Security Advisor.  Mike Flynn, a sitting board member of the astonishingly bigoted Act for America outfit might also be in the new administration.  This article mentions he could become Defense Secretary or the National Security Advisor.  I’m sure he and Woosely would be delighted to work together. The same report mentions that Reince Priebus could have a job in that administration.  Here is Priebus demonstrating his allegiance to Israel. 

“The truth is, America’s security interests are intertwined with Israel’s, and when President Obama does a disservice to Israel, he does a disservice to our country as well.”

It is going to get much worse, with Zionism it always does. 

2. Well it’s video time.  Here is a very recent message from Trump to Israel.  Note to Shas Party members, not only is it short you will like it very much. Very much. 

BDS: “Another Branch of Terrorism”

depressing

1. Well you can’t. make this shit up.

“”We’re very proud to invite U.N. peacekeeping forces to Israel, where they can learn from the world’s top professionals on the unique methods Israel uses to deal with cases involving emergency medicine on the ground,” Israeli envoy to the U.N. says.”

Maybe the Israelis will teach them how to do this:

Pretty inspiring.

2.  In the “This is getting old” department, Israeli Justice Minister – ooops, hold on for a second while I laugh my ass off.  . . . .

Thank you.  Anyway, Israeli Justice Minister – oh fuck I can’t stop giggling.

Let me try again.  Israeli Justice Minister, Ayelet Shaked, is freaking out (again) about BDS claiming that BDS is “deeply rooted in the classical anti-Semitism that has spread throughout Europe over the past few hundred years.”   Yup, good old anti-semitism. It has a lot of uses.  You can probably buy bottles of it at Amazon.com and spray it on anyone you don’t like.

What bullshit. Of course this is the same sort of Zionist bullshit that is turning the Center for American Progress into the Center for Zionist Progress, something we’ll get to in a minute.

She tells us that the true goal of BDS is “”wiping the Jewish nation off the face of the Earth.”

In the second article linked to above she says that BDS is “terrorism.”

““The BDS is illegitimate. I define it thus: BDS is another branch of terrorism in the modern age.”

Here is Israel’s Justice Minister advocating gross violation of international law by devising a way to declare Israel’s illegal West Bank settlements to be legal.

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4682628,00.html

Note also the racist name of her party:  “Jewish Home.”  If Trump were to come up with his own party and call it “White Home” what the hell do you think would happen.

Here you can read her call for genocide against the Palestinians.  She published it on her FB page in Hebrew. (And deleted it.)  The document she posted was authored by a leader of the settler movement, Uri Elitzer.

This is why BDS is important.

3. And now we come to Hillary whose advisors include John Podesta, the founder of the Center for American Progress, and Neera Tanden, the current president of CAP.  Neera does not seem to be all that impressed with Israel, which is interesting.  In fact, let me digress on this just a bit.

Back in March of 2015 Tanden told Podesta that she found Israel to be “depressing.”  And of course Trump made the most of this on Twitter.

But this did not stop her from inviting Benjamin Netanyahu to a love fest at CAP that took place on November 10th 2015.  It was a love fest that created even more strife within CAP’s staff, already shaken by the loss of good people due to pressure from Israel supporters.  Her “conversation” with Netanyahu is described below by James North and Phil Weiss.

Note to Shas Party members, red highlighting is done by today’s guest editor, Ayelet Shaked. Okay, I’m kidding, today’s guest editor is Dawud al-Qursaan.

“Yesterday was a display of the Israel lobby’s strength in the Democratic Party. Netanyahu’s audience was obtained by the American Israel Political Affairs Committee — AIPAC — and the room was rigged, the questions were rigged, every moment from start to finish was scripted to make Netanyahu seem acceptable in Democratic circles. The crowd in the room looked like it was drugged. There was no animation, little audible response, no effervescence. The room was stocked with pro-Israel Jews. The only questions from the audience were from stalwarts of the Israel lobby: Morton Halperin of J Street, David Makovsky of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, and Greg Rosenbaum of the National Jewish Democratic Council. The arrangement of these three questions, two of them putatively adversarial (a Jewish publication quotes J Street saying it was the first time that J Street had ever had a direct encounter with the PM), was straight out of the history of the Soviet Union.”

Now why did this happen?  According to one of her emails to Podesta – the following day – she noted that now CAP could not be accused of anti-Semitism anymore.  That was the big win – another was soon to come, inshallah there will be a new donor. She had to add however that as a result of this utter fiasco – which she laments even having had to do – the “staff is riven.”

Mondowess reports that in a later email it turns out that the donor is a really rich Jewish Zionist named Jonathan Lavine. Maybe we can call it “Netanyahu Money.”

Phil Weiss, who has covered a lot of CAP ground notes the following in that same excellent article:

“As to CAP’s fears re a reputation for anti-Semitism, that is because a bunch of neoconservative Israel lobbyists bird-dogged it in 2011-2012 for staffers who were writing posts critical of Israel and the Israel lobby on Think Progress. All those staffers were in essence purged/walked out the front door in the end.

But the think tank is riven. And our site played a role, because we ran a leaked email about staff dissension over Netanyahu, back when.”

Yup. They seemed to be pretty pissed.  Among the pissed off appear to be Faiz Shakir and Zaid Jilani, formerly with Think Progress.

(Weiss’ article is well-worth reading in full.  Especially the final paragraphs where he makes an argument that rich Jewish Zionist donors to the Dems are so virulent on Israel that they are causing a rift between staunch Israel types and the generally liberal Democratic rank and file, including many Jews. Read it.  But I digress.)

4. In fact, Tanden seems to think that Faiz hates her: She notes in the same email to Podesta:

“On another issue: your friend Faiz has been a great help to CAP over the last few weeks.  I get hating me, but he caused a lot of pain to a lot of people because he hates me.”

Now in this email exchange she writes:

“Faiz’s bloggers are a fucking gift that keep on giving.”

Said blogger in this case is Zaid Jilani. She is complaining about an article that shows that Hillary advisor, Anne O’Leary, used to have a progressive stance on issues such as paid family leave and universal health care but now she and the Clinton campaign oppose these things.  This looks like a typical example of the rift that Weiss discussed. May it grow.

5. Well it is video time.

Now you have just got to watch this brilliant 72-second video (I can hear Shas party members heaving sighs of relief) which is simply excerpts from Tanden’s disgraceful appearance with Netanyahu at CAP.  The readers’ comments are worth skimming as well.  This is so much better than a cat video. So much.

Here is Zaid Jilani.  It is an excerpt from a longer interview.
