fact that control of the American corporate
media is dominated by News
Jews like Stu Schwartz, Ben Sherwood, Michael Bloomberg,
Lesslie Moonvie, and Jeff Zuker almost guarantees that
you have never heard of Fadi Hoosh, a 22-yo Palestinian man who was
torched and burnt to a crisp this week in the garbage
dump of Kafr Kanna in the West Bank by Israeli settlers.
It was another "price tag" attack, which is
the name given to terrorist attacks carried out by Israeli settlers in
Jerusalem and the West Bank intended to drive Palestinians out of their
homeland. "Price tag" because such is the price the Palestinians pay for refusing to
flee their homeland.
American media don't carry most of these terrorist
attacks by iJews, which happen virtually every day, although not all of
them are fatal. But of course, American corporate media -- Jewish
controlled media -- are very quick to report on any knife attacks by
Palestinians, which are understandable responses to the price tag
murders. Because Americans only get one side of the larger
they are understandably left with the impression that the poor iJews are
victims of crazed Palestinians. Therein is the power of controlling
the media, which is to say, controlling the message.
A lot of cable-dependent Americans didn't
even hear about the murder of the Dawabsheh family
in July of this year. This was a Palestinian
family burnt to death in a price tag attack in Duma near Nablus. The story made the
European news, primarily because the son, Ali, was only 18-months old.
Instead of arresting the murders, the IDF and Shin Bet raided the
homes of other members of the Dawabsheh family, thus punishing them all for being Palestinians. It's the way the Government of Israel (GoI) does
things. It's what passes for "justice" in Israel. As far as
busting the perps, there has "been little progress."
Sa'ad, Riham, and Ali Dawabsheh
that it would matter one whit if the Moltov, price-tagger Jews were
caught. In July 2014 price-taggers snatched 16-yo Mohammed
Abu Khdeir off of a street in occupied East Jerusalem and torched
him. Three settlers admitted committing the crime. But just as
the arrests were being made, Netanyahu attacked Gaza in what certainly was
a successful ploy to deflect international attention from what was
happening in the West Bank. The three confessed criminals were
arraigned on Jul27|14. The sham trial is not yet over.
Insanity is the plea. Maybe they'll get community
And the reason I say it is that soon after
Khdeir's murder, his 15-yo American cousin Tariq was badly beaten
by Israeli soldiers, not realizing they were being filmed. Another
cousin, Mohammad, was arrested and is still in prison under
administrative detention, well over a year now without having been
charged. Again, GoI's way of responding to murders of Palestinians
killed by price-taggers is to punish the victims' families. This is
"justice" in Israel. This is what passes for GoI democratic
principles that American politicians, like Hillary
Clinton, keep babbling about before every election.
Justice: the anonymous Israeli cop who beat
Tariq Khdeir to a pulp was
sentenced this week by the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court to 6
weeks community service. By way of contrast, Palestinian kids
who throw rocks at Israeli soldiers can now be fired
upon with life ammo, and they can be put in prison if they are
apprehended. In July this year, Mohammad Kasbeth, 17, was
shot in the back while running away from IDF troopers. The triggerman, Col.
Yisrael Shomer, justified the killing by saying the boy had been
throwing rocks and the colonels' life was at risk. I
have never heard of an Israeli soldier (or civilian) being killed by a
rock. Helmets, kevlar vests, armored vehicles -- it would have to be
a hell of a rock. Besides, the Kasbeth boy was
running away, suggesting that the colonel was a vicious prick with a gun
and a hatred of Palestinians. IMO that pretty well describes the IDF,
That's apartheid life in the West
Bank. In just the last two months GoI soldiers and settlers have
killed about 100 Palestinians -- most were under 19 yo, 18 were children,
4 were girls. On the GoI side of the tally sheet, 16 soldiers and
settlers have been killed over the same period, and 4 of those by IDF
forces and settlers mistaking Israelis for Arabs. This is the ugly
face of Israeli apartheid.
Apartheid -- this brings us to the subject
of this post: a far-right, slime-ball GoI cabinet member named Naftali
Bennett. Bennett went out of his way back in July to
congratulate kiddie-killer Col. Yisrael Shomer for killing the
Kasbeth boy. "This is how a commander in the IDF should
act." said Bennett -- yeah, shoot kids in the back. It's the
This comment was pure Naftali
Bennett. In 2013 Bennett, who is himself a reserve IDF officer,
objected to a release of Palestinian prisoners brokered by Kerry.
"If you catch terrorists," Bennett said, "you simply have
to kill them." When GoI National Security Adviser Ya'akov
Amidror pointed out the obvious -- that murder by a state is illegal
-- Bennett boasted "I've killed lots of Arabs in my life -- and
there's no problem with that." [There are many versions of this
exchange. See Mairav
Zonszein of +972 quoting Yedioth Ahronoth.]
But Bennett was just warming up his racist
rhetoric. Just last Wednesday Bennett
said during a cabinet meeting that more Arabs should be
killed. And he added:
"Anyone who lifts a hand against
Israel must die."
So in memory of Mohammad Abu Khedier, the Dawabsheh
family, Mohammad Kasbeth, Fadi Hoosh, and thousands and thousands of other
Palestinians murdered by GoI uniformed terrorists like Shomer and Bennett
since the 1930's, I respond to Mr. Bennett's foul
threat by figuratively lifting my own hand against Israel.
