Hvers vegna styðja vestræni valdhafa striðsglæpir Ísraels?

Getur það verið peninganna vegna? Eða nánar tiltekin vestræna peningastefnuna vegna byggt á vaxta-tekjum og skuldum. En vaxtatekjur eru bannaðar samkvæmt Múslimatrú. Það sem gerðist með okkur Íslendingar á hryðjuverkalistanum beinist kannski til þessa rökfæðslu.

Sniðgangið Ísrael – Fjárfestið ekki í Ísrael – Beitið Ísrael efnahagsþvingunum (BOYCOTT, DIVEST, SANCTION)

Til að stöðva hernám ‘Israels á Palestínu (í Vesturbakkanum, Gaza og Austur-Jerusaem) eftir 40 ár synist engin annar leið fær, en að flest sjálfstæð ríki um allan heim slita öll opinbert sambönd við Apartheid Israel. En rikisstjórnin okkar hlustar ekki á okkur. Eins og aðrir hefur hún selt út almenna siðgæði fyrir einhverju óljósi “þjóðar-hagsmunar” sem þarf að gæta.
En við höfum lært nú þegar, að það er vonlaust að tala við ríkisstjórnina, gangslaust að öskra á hana og siðlaust að nota ofbeldi.
Gerum það sem eftir, þegjum, húngrandi eftir réttlætinu.
Höldum þegjandi vakt í kuldanum, dag og nótt fyrir framan stjórnaráðið – matarlausar,nafnlausar, röddlausar og andlitslausar- eins og svo mörg Palestínumenn, -konur og börn. Synum samstöðu við Gazamenn sem misstu heimilið sitt og hafa engan öruggan stað til að sofa á. Þau  hafa litið sem ekkert mat eftir. Synum samstöðu við fjölskyldum þeirrar sem voru myrt eða höfðu særst í árásum.

Látumst ekki undan þangað til íslenska rikisstjórnin og Háskóli ‘Islands  slita öll sambönd við ‘Israelsríkið og Háskólanna þar til frambúðar.
Synum samstöðu við Gazamenn sem misstu heimilið sitt og hafa litið sem ekkert mat eftir, og við fjölskyldum þeirrar sem voru myrt eða hafa særst í árásanum.

Ekkert annað en þrýsting almennings á allar vestrænar ríkisstjórnanna, svo að þær taka sér loksins á að þrysta á ‘Israel,  getur að endanum komið í veg fyrir fleiri glæpi Ísraelsmanna gagnvart Palestínumönnum og öðrum nágrönnum Ísraels.

Stríðinu gegn Gaza verður að stöðva, dráp Palestínubarna verður að stöðva. Hernám Ísraela á palenstínsku landi verður að taka enda.

Hernám Palestínu og glæpir Ísraels gegn mannkyninu, sem verið hefur fylgifiskur hernámsins síðustu 60 ár, hefur orðið að tákni fyrir öllu því sem rangt er í þessum heimi. Fyrir öll íslömsk ríki hefur hernám þetta orðið að tákni fyrir því hvernig vestræna menning, efnahags- og hervald hefur yfirtekið landa þeirra og menningu.

Ef okkur í hinum vestræna heimi tekst ekki að gera sýnilega algjöra andstöðu okkur gegn síendurteknum glæpum Ísraelsríkis, þá gæti svo orðið að við stöndum uppi í stríði við gjörvallan  íslamska heim.

Til eru efnahags- og stjórnmálalegir aðilar innan hins vestræna heimi sem stefna að slíkri útkomu. Þeir líta á stríð sem helstu hagsmuni sína. En sérhvert stríð eru miklar hörmungar fyrir afganginn af mannnkyninu.

Weidenfeld lávarður í London, sem er afar áhrifamikill aðili í efnahags- og stjórnmálalífi í Bretlandi, Þýskalandi og öðrum evrópskum ríkjum, skrifaði leiðaragrein í ‘Die Welt,’ einu stærsta þýska dagblaðí. Blað þetta tilheyrir stærsta þýska útgáfufyrirtækinu, Springer-Verlag, en Weidenfeld er megineigandinn og situr í stjórn þess. Hann skrifaði að þriðja heimstyrjöldin yrði óumflýjanleg, að hans mati. Það yrði styrjöld gegn íslömsku ríkjunum til að vernda okkar vestræna heim og yrði barist að mestu leyti í Miðausturlöndum. Slík heimstyrjöld myndi hafa fleiri dauðsföll í för með sér en fyrri tvær heimstyrjaldirnar.

Bandaríski ‘thinktank’ hópurinn PNAC hefur myndað aðgerðir til að stuðla að endalausum stríðum fyrir Bandaríkjunum (með aðstoð NATO ríkja) til að vernda valdastöðu sína. Félagar úr sama hópi hefur myndað áætlun fyrir Netanyahu, fyrrverandi (og hugsanlega framtíðar) forsætisráðherra Ísraels, sem kallast ‘Securing the Realm,” þar sem hann leggur til að farið sé í stríð við nágrannalöndin, með aðstoð bandamanna eins og Bandaríkjanna og Bretlands, til að sundra þau í smærri ríki eftir ættbálkum og trúarhópum, þannig að Ísrael stæði eftir sem mesta her- og efnahagsveldi svæðisins. Tillögur þessar eru ekki neinar nýjungar, heldur undirstrika þær og skýra ýmsar stefnur sem unnið hefur verið eftir síðan stofnun síonistaríkisins Ísraels. Nefna má stefnulýsingu Ynons Oded frá árinu 1980, eins og hún var þýdd af mannréttindafrömuðinum Israel Shahak, eða framtíðarsýnir eins og þau fundust í dagbók Bens Gurion, fyrsta forsætisráðherra Ísraels, og í bréfaskiptum hans við kollega hans,Moshe Sharet.

En hvers vegna verndar og styður vestræni heimurinn Ísrael í stríðsglæpum sínum og glæpum gegn mannkyninu?
Hvers vegna taka vestrænir fréttamiðlar alla stríðsglæpi Ísraelsmanna úr samhengi, þegar upp um þau komst, eins og það hafa aldrei verið aðrir samskona glæpir fyrr.
Hvers vegna verða þessi glæpir alltaf gleymt, næstum því um leið, ásamt frásögnum um glæpi gegn mannkyninu, mismunun, eignarhaldi lands og bygginga, eyðileggingu innra kerfisins, skóla, sjúkrahúsa, háskóla, orkuvera og vatnshreinsistöðva?
Hvers vegna skýra fjölmiðlar okkar aldrei frá hinum útbreyddu og kerfisbundnu pyntingum palestrínskra og líbanskra fanga, bæði líkamlegum og andlegum?
Hvers vegna segja fjölmiðlarnir ekki frá hinum hroðalegu auðmýkingum fanganna og notkun þeirra sem tilraunadýr í lyfjagjöfum, s.s. þegar ný og óreynd lyf eru reynd á þeim án samþykkis þeirra? Hvers vegna fjalla fjölmiðlarnir aldrei um misbeitingu ísraelskra hermanna á palenstínskum börnum og konum, fyrir litlar eða engar sakir? Sannanir fyrir slíka glæpi koma frá ísraelsku hermönnunum sjálfum og frá mannréttindastofnunum.
Hvers vegna fjalla fjölmiðlar um sérhverja herför Ísraels gegn Palestínu, Líbanon og Sýrlandi eins og hún væri sú allra fyrsta og þá eingöngu orsakað af einhverju dularfullu arabísku ofbeldi gagnvart hjálparlausum ísraelskum fórnarlömbum?
Hvers vegna þegja fjölmiðlar þunnu hljóði um hið hroðalega ofbeldi og ofríki Ísraels sem Palestínumenn, Líbanir og Sýrlendingar hafa mátt búa við áður en þeir sjálfir urðu ofbeldisfullir á ‘dularfullan’ hátt?
Hvers vegna leyfist hinni 5 milljón manna Ísraelsþjóð að ganga fram á slíkan siðferðislegan brjálaðan hátt og ýta þannig undir reiði meðal nágranna sinna, sem að lokum seytlar inn í hinn vestræna heim?

Sumir segja að sú síonistaáætlun að stofna gyðingaríki í Palestínu var og er að undirlagi vestrænna ríkja, sama hvernig Ísraelar hegða sér, til þess að ná betra tangarhaldi á náttúruauðlindum miðausturlanda, sérstaklega olíu og gasi. Slík röksemdarfærsla er ekki sérlega úthugsuð, þar sem hin almenna reiði, sem glæpir Ísraels gegn nágrönnum þeirra í miðausturlöndum valda, gerir amerískum og evrópskum ríkjum erfiðara fyrir að vernda einræðisskjólstæðinga sína og leppstjórnvöld sem vesturlönd koma á í þessum ríkjum. Litlu einræðisherrarnir verða að koma sér upp gríðarlegri öryggisneti til að halda völdum og þeir eru ávallt í hættu af byltingaröflum inna sem utan við þetta net. Einnig er töluvert erfiðara að vernda olíuvinnsluna fyrir skemmdarverkum í óstöguðu svæði.

Aðrir sjá þá ástæðu fyrir stuðningi vestrænna ríkja við glæpi Ísraels í þeirri staðreynd, að margir auðugir Bandaríkjamenn og Evrópubúar tengjast Ísraelsmönnum tilfinninga- og fjölskylduböndum og að auðvelt er að snúa stjórnmálamönnum til liðsinnis fyrir málstað síonista með fjárframlögum til eigin kosningaherferða. Eflaust er einhvert sannleikskorn að finna í þessu. Harvardprófessorarnir Mearsheimer og Walt halda þessu fram í rannsóknarriti sínu ‘The Israel Lobby.’

Þetta skýrir samt sem áður ekki hvers vegna svo margir valdamiklir aðilar, án þjóðflokka- eða trúartengsla við síonisma, hvort heldur gyðinga eða kristna (Christian Zionists), styðja Ísraelsmenn í glæpum þeirra.

Nýlegir atburðir hér í okkar eigin landi, Íslandi, gæti veitt okkur vísbendingu um það hvers vegna Ísraelmönnum leyfist að hegða sér á þennan hátt.

Árið 2003 einkavæddi ríkisstjórn Ísland, í forsætisráðherraembætti Davíðs Oddssonar, íslensku bankana. Ráðgjafar hans frá breska bankanum HSBC, þriðju stærstu bankasamstæðu Bretlands, höfðu hvatt hann til þess. (HSBC er annars sá banki sem nýtur þeirrar vafasömu stöðu í sögunni að vera sá banki sem fjármagnaði ópíumverslunina frá Indlandi til Kína eftir að Kínverjar töpuðu ópíumstríðinu. Kínversk stjórnvöld höfðu reynt að hindra Breska austurindíafélagið í að dreifa ópíum til Kína. Ópíumið var að eyðileggja kínversku millistéttina og Bretar fengu fyrir vikið yfirráð yfir kínverskar auðlindir og vörur undir kostnaði frá eiturlyfjaneytendunum).

Ríkisstjórn Íslands hafði verið lofað að með því að einkavæða bankakerfið, myndu erlendir auðmenn fjárfesta á Íslandi og aðstoða við að gera útflutningsiðnaðinn fjölbreyttari, þannig að hann yrði ekki of háður fiskiafurðum á alþjóðlegum markaði. Breskir og aðrir erlendir ráðgjafar sannfærðu íslensku stjórnvöld einnig um að setja einkabönkunum engin takmörk umfram þau frjálslegu lög sem þegar gilda í Evrópusambandinu. Jafnframt hvöttu erlendu ráðgjafarnir einkabankana um að færa út kvíarnar. Þessi ‘háleitu viðskiptamarkmið’ voru rómuð og sagt var að alls engin hætta væri á gjaldþroti í þeim fjölbreyttu fjárfestingum sem bankarnir stóðu að.

Það var breski bankamaðurinn Mark Sismey-Durrant, sem hóf feril sinn hjá HSBC, sem varð stjórnarformaður Englandsdeildar Landsbankans. Það var Sismey-Durrant sem byrjaði á Icesave-reikningunum í Bretlandi og svo í öðrum evrópskum löndum. (Sismey-Durrant er líka meðlímur í stjórninu hjá “the Guild of International Bankers”, þar sem hann hefur náin samskipti við valdamestar breskar fjármálamenn eins og Sir Peter Middleton.)

Til að byrja með streymdi erlendur peningur inn. Efnahagurinn byrjaði að taka uppsveiflu og fasteignaverð hækkaði upp úr öllu valdi. Seðlabankinn reyndi að koma í veg fyrir að efnahagurinn þendist of hratt með því að hækka stýrivexti. En bankarnir unnu gegn þessum tilburðum með því að bjóða Íslendingum lán í erlendri mynt. Og þá, í upphafi ársins 2008, hófu erlendir peningasjóðir að veðja á veikingu íslensku krónunnar. Erlendir fjárfestar hófu í meiri mæli að draga sig úr íslenskum bönkum. Þetta leiddi til gjaldeyrisskorts í íslenska bankakerfinu. Íslensku bankarnir áttu þá engan annan kost en að taka skammtímalán frá öðrum bönkum og Seðlabanki Íslands reyndi að taka lán í öðrum erlendum seðlabönkum til að styðja við bankana.

En evrópsku og amerísku seðlabankarnir, ásamt öðrum fjármagnsstofnunum, sem áður höfðu ákaft hvatt íslensku bankanna til útrásar, neituðu nú allir sem einn að veita nokkurt lán. Þegar fjárfestingarfélagið Lehman Brothers í Bandarikjunum féll, frusu öll lánaviðskipti og hafði Seðlabanki Íslands þá eingöngu nægt erlent fé til að bjarga einum banka, Kaupþing, sem syndist að hafa nokkur chance til að lifa af. Þá höfðu ríkisstjórn Íslands og bankastjórar Seðlabankans þegar gert sér grein fyrir því að þeir höfðu verið ginntir inn í aðstæður þar sem efnahagskerfi Íslands í heild sinni gæti staðið frammi fyrir að verða yfirtekið af þeim breskum bönkum þar sem ráðgjafar þeir, er ginntu íslensk stjórnvöld til að einkavæða bankakerfi landsins, voru á mála hjá.
Ísland hefur verið, alveg eins og svo mörg þriðja heimsríki, verið leitt í skulda-gildru af ráðgjöfum, sem stundum, samkvæmt John Perkins, kallar sjálfan sig “economic hitmen”. (Perkins hefur einu sinni unnið í svona starfi.)
Stjórnvöld ákváðu því að þjóðvæða bankana aftur og skera þannig af erlendra hluta bankanna frá þeim innlendum. Þetta átti að gera erlendu útibúin, með öllum sínum eignum, ábyrg gagnvart erlendum viðskiptavinum og ínnlendir bankanir eingöngu ábyrg gagnvart innlendum viðskiptavinum. Gert var ráð fyrir að þessar erlendir eignir myndu duga fyrir flest öllum erlendum skuldum ef þær væru seldar á venjubundinn hátt, en ekki á útsölu. (Enda voru íslensku bankarnir ekki með verðlaus bandarisk húsnæðisskuldabréf í bókhaldi sínu eins og svo mörg aðrir evropskir bankar).

Þegar stjórnvöld reyndu hins vegar að bjarga íslenska efnahagskerfinu, þá voru lýðveldið Ísland,Landsbanki og Seðlabanki Íslands settir á lista bresku stjórnarinnar um ríki  og samtök sem  fremdu hryðjuverk eða styddu hryðjuverkasamtök. Og þá var íslenskum eignum á Bretlandi  fryst. Og þar með var Kaupþing fallin líka. Önnur nöfn á þessum lista voru Hamassamtökin, Hezbollah og Íran.

Þetta útskýrir greinilega hvað hryðjuverk og stríð gegn hryðjuverkum snýst um. Það snýst ekkert um einhver ofbeldisverk sem einstakt ríki eða samtök á þessum lista fremja, heldur um það hvaða brögðum er beitt gegn hagsmunum stærstu vestrænu bankastofnanna og helstu eignaraðlila þeirra.

Margir stjórnmálaskýrendur hafa þegar komist að þeirri niðurstöðu að stríðið gegn hryðjuverkum sé í sannleika stríð gegn Íslam. Vestræna bankakerfið í heild sinni lítur á íslömsk trúarbrögð sem vá gegn eigin hagsmunum.
Hvers vegna?
Vegna þess að íslömsku bankarnir og fjármálakerfið bannar vexti í lánum, samkvæmt sharia-lögmálinu.

Vaxta- og skuldlaust fé er hugmynd sem einnig er að finna í kristnum, húmanístískum og umhverfissamtökum í hinum vestræna heimi. Hugmynd vaxtalauss fjár hefur þróast í vestrænum ríkjum síðan á þriðja áratug 20. aldar. Þær samtök sem styðja slíkt í hinum vestrænum löndum eru á hinn bóginn litlar og áhrifslausar. En í íslömskum ríkjum er vaxtalaust fé aftur á móti sterk trúarregla, að minsta kost í hverju ríki þar sem stjórnarskráin byggir á íslömsku lögmáli.

Þó að við hér í vestræna heiminum erum á öndverðum meiði við íslamska menningu í vissum málum, þá er þó eitt sem íslömsk menning hefur umfram okkar eigin, nefnilega íslamska banka- og efnahagskerfið. Nokkur ríkið í Suður Ameríku eru þegar að læra af íranska fjárhags- og bankakerfinu í þeirri viðleitni að þróa svipað kerfi í eigin landi.

Ef íslamska fjárhagskerfið verður til eftirbreytni fyrir þróunarlöndin, og jafnvel fyrir vestræn iðnaðarríki, þá myndu fjárhagstoppur hins vestræna heims tapa völdum sínum yfir stjórnmálakerfinu vestrænna landa.

Þetta er ástæðan fyrir því að Ísraelmenn eru studdir og hvattir í glæpsamlegri hegðun sinni. Hin hjálparvana reiði sem ólgar í nágrönnum Ísraels vegna þess óréttlætis sem Palestínumenn og þeir sjálfir eru beittir, notfæra sér vestræn leyniþjónustusamtök til að skapa sökudólga fyrir eigin árásir á vestræn skotmörk. Þessar árásir (eins og 11.September árásin) eru síðan notaðar til að magna reiði meðal íbúa vestrænna ríkja á íslömskum ríkjum í Miðausturlöndum. Og að endanum geta þá þessi ráðamenn nota ungmennir okkur sem krossfara gegn Íslam, þ.e.eftir að komið er af stað þriðja heimstyrjöld.

Sannleikann um sögu Ísraels verður að komast á framfæri til allrar vestrænum ríkjum. En lygar um raunveruleikan í hertöku Ísraels á Palestínulandi eru ekki sú einar sem hindrar því að heimurinn finnur loksins leið til meira réttlætis og frið.
Fleiri lygar verður að afhjúpast.
Til dæmis er það sú lygi um loftlagsbreyting af mannavöldum, sem Malthusian mannhatarar fundu upp og stærsti fjárfestabankanna græða á, á meðan þriðja heims lönd tapa sínu tækifærið til að fá að þróa sér. Á meðan verða flest raunverulegir umhverfisvandamálin gleymt.
Svo eru það opinbera lygarnir um 11. September 2001
Svo eru það lyganir um það sem í raun hefur skéð í Bosniu og í Kosovo, sem en hefur áhrif á stefnu Evropusambandsins gagnvart Serbiu.
Svo eru það lyganir um það sem í raun hefur skéð í Ruanda, sem en hefur áhrif á striðsglæpir sem nú eru framin gegn fólkið í nágrannaríkið Kongo.
Að afhjúpa lygar fortíðanna og koma sannleikanum á framfærið er alveg bráðnauðsinlegt. En við höfum þar vist langa leið að ganga.
En eins og sagt er af viskum mönnum: “Hvert ferðalag byrja á fyrsta skréfið.”
Fyrsta skrefið nú er að stöðva glæpum Ísraelsmanna.
Aðförinni að þriðju heimstyrjöldinni, vestræni heimurinn á móti íslamska heiminum, verður að stöðva. Allir menn í vestrænum löndum verða að gera sig grein fyrir að Palestínumenn og aðrir Arabar ,en einnig Íranir, Afganir og Pakistanir, eru bræður okkar og systur í fjölskyldu mannkynsins.

Við megum ekki heyja stríð gegn Íslam.  Palestína er heilagt land fyrir okkur öll, kristnir menn og múslimar.
FRJÁLS PALESTÍNA !

Ísrael´s árásir á og hernámið af Lebanon

The Zionists interests in Lebanon date back to the beginning of their colonization project in late 19th century.
In the process of drawing the maps of their alleged entity, the Zionists aimed at a northern border that runs along the Litani river in Lebanon…..

It comes as no surprise, thus, that the first stage of their occupation of the South, in March 1978, was named “The Litani Operation.”


The Sabra and Shatila Massacre (16-18 September 1982)

For 40 hours in September 1982, members of the Israeli-allied Lebanese Phalangist militia raped, killed, and injured a large number of unarmed civilians, mostly children, women and elderly people inside the encircled and sealed Sabra and Shatila camps. The estimate of victims varies between 700 (the official Israeli figure) to 3,500….
According to statements made by Ariel Sharon on 22 September 1982 in the Knesset (Israeli parliament), the decision that the Phalangists should enter the refugee camps was made on Wednesday, 15 September 1982 at 15.30. Also according to General Sharon, the Israeli Command had received the following instruction: “[t]he Tsahal forces are forbidden to enter the refugee camps. The ‘mopping-up’ of the camps will be carried out by the Phalanges or the Lebanese army.”

The Qana massacres 2006 and 1996

The repeated missile strikes, launched in the dead of night while the targeted victims were asleep, reduced a four-story apartment building and nearby houses to rubble, killing at least 57 residents, including 37 children….
The massacre of civilians is nothing new for the Israeli ruling elite. Ten years ago, during the last major Israeli incursion into Lebanon, Israeli artillery destroyed a United Nations base in the very same village —Qana. More than 100 civilians who had taken refuge in the base were killed.

Israel executes unarmed Egyptian prisoners of war and targets Palestinian children
The Israeli army followed the same (Nazi) method of executing
prisoners of war especially during 1956 and 1967 Israeli-Egyptian wars. This
was reported in the Israeli Haaretz newspaper in June 27th 2000. The
Egyptian Human Rights Organization Secretary-General, Muhammad Munib,
submitted a report confirming that Israel had killed between 7,000 to 15,000
Egyptian prisoners of wars of 1956 and 1967. The report also identified the
locations of 11 mass graves in Sinai and Israel in which thousands of
Egyptian prisoners were buried.
The most prominent of these massacres was the El-Arish massacre, where
Israeli forces murdered at least 150 Egyptian prisoners of war

Why do western powers support Israel´s crimes?

Why has the western world for 60 years supported the atrocities of Israel against their neighbours?
Maybe in order to protect the western elite´s interest-based fractional reserve money system from the dangerous influence the good example of a more rational non-interest-based money system promoted by Islamic law would have on it.

Boycott Israel, Divest from Israel, Sanction Israel

Nothing else can stop Israel´s crimes against the Palestinian people and against Israel´s other neighbours.
Like everywhere else in the world, several demonstrations and action protests have been staged in Iceland against the most recent of Israel´s atrocities, the attacks on the besieged long-suffering people of Gaza living in their open air concentration camp. More protests including sit-ins, day and night vigils and hunger strikes in front of the seat of the Icelandic government  in solidarity with the hungry and now home-less people of Gaza are expected.In this way the government and the Icelandic Universities are being pressured to cut all official political and academic connections to the state of Israel until the occupation of the Westbank, Gaza and East-Jerusalem has ended. And although most Icelanders would support this, they have learned that their government doesn´t listen to them. Like all western governments, the Icelandic government has sold out the last inches of decency and morality to a vague notion of “national interest”: We may not anger the powerful of this world.

But the Israeli occupation of Palestine and all the crimes against humanity, which have followed this occupation for the last 60 years have become a symbol for all that is wrong in this world.
For the Islamic world this occupation is the most open expression of the western cultural, economic and military domination over their own lands and cultures.

If we people of good will, we Christians or democratic Humanists of the western world, will not find a way to show our absolute opposition to the repeated and seemingly never-ending crimes of the state of Israel by putting pressure on it, we will eventually find ourselves in a general war with all of the Islamic world.

There are economic and political powers within western countries, who strive for exactly this kind of outcome. While those sociopaths see war as being in their interest, the rest of us know, that every war is a catastrophe for all of humanity.

Lord Weidenfeld of London, a British power broker, with enormous influence within economic and political circles in Britain, Germany and other European countries wrote an opinion piece in one of the largest German newspapers “die Welt”, which belongs to the largest German newspaper-corporation “Springer-Verlag”. Weidenfeld is part owner and sits on the board of directors there.
He writes, that, in his opinion,  a third world war would be inevitable. It would have to be fought against the Islamic world in order to protect our “western civilisation”, and would mostly be fought in the Middle East. This new World War would eventually lead to more casualties than WWI and WWII.

The American Neocon thinktank PNAC has, as most of us know, formulated a disturbingly insane strategy paper promoting an age of unending American wars (with the help of NATO countries), using all means of weaponry, including nuclear and biological, in order to protect American primacy in the world.
Some of the very same authors had earlier written a strategy paper for Israel´s former, and possibly future, Prime Minister Netanyahu called “Securing the Realm”. In there they propose a series of wars with Israel´s neighbouring countries, with the help of Israel´s allies America and Britain, of course, to break those neighbouring countries into smaller units along ethnic and religious-sectarian lines. Only by doing this, the paper suggests, Israel would stay the militarily and economically strongest nation in the region.
This policy paper does not propose a new concept. It only reiterates and clarifies positions which have been taken since the inception of the Zionist state of Israel. One can read them for instance in the 1980 policy paper written by Ynon Oded (as translated be the late human rights activist Israel Shahak) or in the diaries of first Israeli Prime Minister Ben Gurion and in his correspondence with his collegue Moshe Sharet.

Now it could be argued that these policies are just written down by Zionist extremists, they have nothing to do with the rest of the world.
But why is Israel so often protected and supported by the governments of the western world in these kind of policies and in all it´s war-crimes and crimes against humanity ?
Why does the western mass-media conveniently leave out all context of earlier Israeli war-crimes and all the accounts of crimes against humanity,  discrimination, dispossession of land and buildings, destruction of infrastructure, schools, hospitals, universities, power-plants water-treatment facilities?
Why do our media outlets outlets barely ever report  of the widespread and systematic use of physical and psychological torture against Palestinian and Lebanese prisoners?
Why does the media not report about the many terrible acts of humiliation of prisoners and of their use for medical experiments, like the testing of new and untested drugs on them without their permission?
Why does the media never talk about the mistreatment of Palestinian children and women by Israeli soldiers with little or no provocation at all? The evidence for these crimes have come from Israeli soldiers themselves, as well as from human rights organizations.
Why does the media treat every single Israeli military campaign against Palestinians, Lebanese or Syrians as if it was the first one and only provoked by some mysterious Arabic violence against helpless Israeli victims?
Why does the media leave out all the terrible acts of reoccurring Israeli violence and oppression the people of Palestine, Lebanon and Syria had to suffer before they became so “mysteriously” violent themselves?
Why is the tiny 5 Million people state of Israel allowed to act in such a morally insane manner and provoke so much anger in their neighbours, that it eventually spills out onto the western world?

Some people say, that the Zionist project to create a Jewish state in Palestine was promoted and is still protected by western powers no matter how Israel behaves, in order to gain a better hold on the resource wealth of the Middle Eastern countries, especially the oil and gas resources.
This argument does not make a lot of sense, since the anger which is created by Israel´s crimes against their neighbors within the general population of the Middle East makes it a lot harder for American and European powers to protect the dictatorial client- and puppet regimes which the west props up in those countries. Those little dictators have to keep up a large security apparatus to stay in power, and they are still always in danger of a coup coming from inside this security apparatus. And the oil installations are actually a lot harder to protect from acts of sabotage in a  region made volatile by anger over so much injustice.

Other people see as reason for western powers support of Israel´s crimes, the fact that many rich and powerful Americans and Europeans have emotional and family ties with Israel, and that they are able to lobby the politicians for the Zionist cause by financing their election campaigns.
There is probably some truth to this argument. Harvard Professors Mearsheimer and Walt make good case for this in their well-researched paper “The Israel Lobby”.

However this does not explain, why so many powerful people with no ethnic or religious connection to Jewish or Christian Zionism support Israel in all it´s crimes.

It´s recent events here in Iceland which might give us a clue to why Israel is allowed to behave the way it does.

In 2003 the Icelandic government under Prime Minister David Oddson privatized the Icelandic Banks. He had been persuaded to do so by his advisers from the third largest banking corporation in the world the British bank HSBC (The HSBC by the way has the sordid history of having once been the bank which financed the Opium trade from India to China after the Chinese had lost the Opium war. The Chinese government had tried to stop the British East India Company to dump Opium into China. The Opium was destroying the Chinese middle class and the Brits received Chinese resources and goods from the addicts under value.)

The Icelandic government had been promised that by privatising their banking system, foreign investors would pour their money into the Iceland economy. This would help the country to better diversify it´s export industry so it would no longer be solely depended on the fluctuating export value of  fish and fish-products on the international markets. These British and other foreign consultants also persuaded the Icelandic government not to put any limits on the private banks with any laws beyond the very liberal laws of the European Union. The Icelandic banks were then encouraged by their foreign consultants” to expand without limits. Their “strong business concepts” were hailed endlessly and they were told that since they had such a diverse investment strategy that there would be no danger whatsoever for a possible bankruptcy.

It was the British banker Mark Sismey-Durrant, who had started his career at the HSBC, who became the managing director of Landsbanki´s British branch. Sismey-Durrant, who is a committee member of the “Guild of International Bankers”, rubbing shoulders with some of the most powerful bankers in Britain, started the Icesave saving accounts in Britain and then in other European countries.

At first foreign money did stream in and the economy started to boom and the housing prices went through the roof. The Icelandic central tried to keep the economy from overheating by increasing the interest rates. But the banks undercut all those efforts by offering Icelanders loans in foreign currencies. And then in the beginning of 2008 foreign hedge funds began betting against the Icelandic currency and more and foreign investors pulled out of the Icelandic banks. This let to a cash shortage in the Icelandic banking system.The Icelandic banks then had no choice  than taking short time loans from other banks and the Icelandic central bank tried to get loans from other central banks to back up the banks. But the European and American central banks and other financial institutes which before had enthusiastically encouraged the expansion of the Icelandic banks now refused any loans whatsoever. With the crash of Lehman Brothers all inter-bank loans dried up and the Icelandic central bank only had enough foreign money to save one bank.
For a while now, the Icelandic government and leaders of the central bank had realized that they had been tricked into a situation where the whole Icelandic economy would be victim to a hostile take-over by the British banks, who had been the “consultants” that had tricked the Icelandic government into the privatisation of their country´s banking system. John Perkins who once worked as such a “consultant” in South America tells us that they usually call themselves “Economic Hitmen”.
So the government decided to renationalize the banks and cut the foreign businesses of those banks from the domestic businesses. This action was supposed to protect the domestic financial system and make the foreign parts of the banks with their large assets responsible for their foreign debts. It was assumed that these assets (since the Icelandic banks had no American sub-prime loan derivatives on their balance sheets) would, if they were sold in a regular manner and not under fire-sale conditions, be able to cover most of those foreign debts.

However, when the government tried to save the Icelandic economy from certain collapse, this was the moment, when Iceland,together with Landsbanki and the Icelandic central bank were set on the list of “terrorism supporting countries and terrorist organisations” by the British government.   Others on this list are Hamas, Hezbollah and Iran.
Icelandic assets where frozen abroad and the country was for a whole months completely cut off from the international trading markets, neither exports not imports by Icelandic could be paid for. This financial siege ended only when Iceland conceded to the financial control of the IMF and to take over the debts made be the private banks onto the Icelandic public.The assets which had some value before their frozen by the British government have now practically lost most of their value and will no longer be able to cover the debts.  Like developing countries before, Iceland is now encumbered by debts, which the small population of the country will never be able to repay.

The series of events, which led to Iceland having ended up on the “supporters of terrorism” list, makes it quite clear what “terrorism” and the “war against terrorism” is all about. It has nothing whatsoever to do with any acts of violence  performed or supported by the countries or organisations on this list, instead those people and countries are considered “terrorists or supporters of terrorism”  whose protective actions are considered to go against the interests of the largest western banking corporations and their main share-holders.

Many political writers have  already come to the conclusion that the “war against terrorism” is in reality a war against the religion and the people of Islam.
The western banking corporations see the whole religion of Islam as a danger to their interests.
Why?
Because the Islamic banking and financial system according to Sharia law does not allow the taking of interest for the lending of money.

Interest-free money is an idea that is shared by Christian, humanist and environmental organisations in the west as well. The idea of interest-free money has been developed and promoted in western countries since the 1920s. However, the organizations which support this alternative money concept in the western world are small and without much influence.
In the Islamic world, however, interest-free money is part of the obligatory religious rule for a sovereign Islamic country with a constitution based on Islamic law.

While we in the western world disagree with Islamic culture on several issues, there is this one part in which Islamic culture is far more progressive than our western: the Islamic banking and financial system.
Some South-American countries are already taking lessons from the Iranian financial and banking system trying to develop a similar system for their own region.

If the Islamic financial system would become  a good example for developing countries and even western industrial countries, today’s western financial elites would loose their power over the political system of the western world.

And this is exactly the reason why the Islamic peoples of the world are portrayed as the “enemy of the west” and why Israel is supported and encouraged in it´s criminal behavior. The helpless anger Israel´s neighbours feel about the injustice that is being done to the Palestinian and to themselves is being used by western intelligence agencies to create patsies for false flag attacks on western targets.
These “Islamic terrorist-attacks” attacks are then in turn being used to create anger among the western population against the Islamic countries of the Middle East. Young westerners can now be turned into anti-Islamic crusaders, and WWIII can start.

Telling the truth about Israel´s crimes and the boycott of Israel are the most important preventions against a general war.
Of course, in order for the world to have a chance for more justice and peace, other lies, than those the mainline media tells us about Israel, must be debunked and other truths must be told.
For instance the lies told about 9/11 must be debunked, as well as the lies about “global warming”. And the truth must be told about what really happened in Bosnia, Kosovo for these events effect European policy still today. And the truth about Ruanda must be told, for the lies are now killing the people in the Congo.

We have a long way ahead of us to set the record straight in the mind of the western public against all those deadly lies. But wise men have said, that every journey starts with the first step. And stopping Israel´s crimes against humanity now is the first step on the way to peace,the first step we have to take.

Chris Hedges: The Language of Death
The Israeli decision to rain death and destruction on Gaza, to use the lethal weapons of the modern battlefield on a largely defenseless civilian population, is the final phase of the decades-long campaign to ethnically cleanse Palestinians. The assault on Gaza is about creating squalid, lawless and impoverished ghettos where life for Palestinians will be barely sustainable. It is about building ringed Palestinian enclaves where Israel will always have the ability to shut off movement, food, medicine and goods to perpetuate misery. The Israeli attack on Gaza is about building a hell on earth.

Attacks on and Occupation of South Lebanon

The Zionists interests in Lebanon date back to the beginning of their colonization project in late 19th century.
In the process of drawing the maps of their alleged entity, the Zionists aimed at a northern border that runs along the Litani river in Lebanon…..

It comes as no surprise, thus, that the first stage of their occupation of the South, in March 1978, was named “The Litani Operation.”


The Sabra and Shatila Massacre (16-18 September 1982)

For 40 hours in September 1982, members of the Israeli-allied Lebanese Phalangist militia raped, killed, and injured a large number of unarmed civilians, mostly children, women and elderly people inside the encircled and sealed Sabra and Shatila camps. The estimate of victims varies between 700 (the official Israeli figure) to 3,500….
According to statements made by Ariel Sharon on 22 September 1982 in the Knesset (Israeli parliament), the decision that the Phalangists should enter the refugee camps was made on Wednesday, 15 September 1982 at 15.30. Also according to General Sharon, the Israeli Command had received the following instruction: “[t]he Tsahal forces are forbidden to enter the refugee camps. The ‘mopping-up’ of the camps will be carried out by the Phalanges or the Lebanese army.”

The Qana massacres 2006 and 1996

The repeated missile strikes, launched in the dead of night while the targeted victims were asleep, reduced a four-story apartment building and nearby houses to rubble, killing at least 57 residents, including 37 children….
The massacre of civilians is nothing new for the Israeli ruling elite. Ten years ago, during the last major Israeli incursion into Lebanon, Israeli artillery destroyed a United Nations base in the very same village —Qana. More than 100 civilians who had taken refuge in the base were killed.

Israel executes unarmed Egyptian prisoners of war and targets Palestinian children
The Israeli army followed the same (Nazi) method of executing
prisoners of war especially during 1956 and 1967 Israeli-Egyptian wars. This
was reported in the Israeli Haaretz newspaper in June 27th 2000. The
Egyptian Human Rights Organization Secretary-General, Muhammad Munib,
submitted a report confirming that Israel had killed between 7,000 to 15,000
Egyptian prisoners of wars of 1956 and 1967. The report also identified the
locations of 11 mass graves in Sinai and Israel in which thousands of
Egyptian prisoners were buried.
The most prominent of these massacres was the El-Arish massacre, where
Israeli forces murdered at least 150 Egyptian prisoners of war
