�The Zionist power configuration�s
primary loyalty is to the state of Israel and its policy is designed to
colonize the US congress . . . to the benefit of the �mother country,� Israel.�
James Petras addresses a problem rarely discussed, except in
whispers, unquestioned support for Israel. He mentions congress, but the
executive has also been �colonized.� Major party candidates, whether bowing
before the American Israel lobby in Washington or praying before the Wailing
Wall in Jerusalem, are evidence enough. The dominance of this �Zionist Power
Configuration� is a very serious problem for Americans who remain generally
unaware of its existence.
That power bloc has great control of government and media as
well, and its political organizations bring enormous pressure on publications
or individuals expressing criticism of Israel, quickly labeled anti-Semitic. If
that criticism extends to questioning some aspects of the Nazi persecution of
Jews, made even more horrible with constant repetition, they are labeled
Holocaust deniers. This heresy not only endangers individual freedoms, but the
fate of nations, as the case of Ahmadinejad and Iran clearly shows.
America�s global position has establishment groups battling
for control of foreign policy. Sectors of the old white Anglo Saxon protestant
(WASP) ruling class see dedication to the Jewish state endangering empire and
are in a struggle with the newer Jewish power bloc. This clash of political
mafias will hardly bring peace, but it has already brought out much about the
previously unmentionable. Support for a colonial state that brutalizes its
native population enough to shock survivors of South African apartheid can only
continue with Americans kept in complete ignorance.
Under a propaganda regime that depicts innocent Jews savaged
by evil Palestinians, the U.S. massively finances and arms the Jewish state,
while destroying other Middle Eastern countries on its behalf. Jewish
persecution of Palestinians is somehow deemed acceptable because Nazis
persecuted Jews. This illogical and morally degenerate policy has colonials
settling where they believe they originated -- with no evidence save mythology --
and calling themselves Semitic natives, while the Semitic people who�ve lived
there for centuries are expelled, made refugees, and called anti-Semitic
terrorists when they resist.
This would be the ultimate black comedy if it were not so
dangerous to all humanity. Israel is run by some seriously disturbed people; we
are not dealing with an individual nutcase waving an ax, but with leaders of a
state waving nuclear weapons -- which nobody is supposed to know they have -- and
motivated by a cultural narrative which has it that everyone not Jewish is
ultimately dedicated to murdering everyone who is Jewish.
A long history of suffering, both real and legendary,
culminated in the dreadful Nazi treatment of Jews in the 20th century, a
terrible event that has become the fundamentalist Holocaust religion. Its
existential notion of pending doom has created a movement to destroy critics of
any tenets of the faith. Such �thought crimes� can lead to social ostracism,
professional failure and prison. For the Zionists, the Jewish Holocaust
religion and the Jewish secular state are joined in necessity and meaning; one
does not exist without the other, making it all the more difficult for reason,
humanity or democracy to function when dealing with such contradictory
The Zionist movement originating in a 19th century desire
for a national Jewish homeland has evolved into a belief that biblical
mythology �proves� European Jewish origins in Palestine. Religious freedom
allows belief in any immaterialism we wish, even that the tooth fairy is
responsible for modern dentistry. But when such mythology becomes the
foundation for national policy, we are lowered to the mental status of
primitive apes, but physically wielding nuclear weapons of mass destruction and
not harmless war clubs.
How can Americans tolerate this in the midst of a severe
economic crisis and while carrying a colossal and growing debt which can never
be paid? Only under mind management that convinces us all our problems
originate outside America, and that Israel is our most important ally. An
individual believing such nonsense would be judged insane and
institutionalized. Our society is programmed to treat delusions as real, lies
as the truth, and psychotic behavior as evidence of mental health.
Once the Zionists achieved the destruction of Iraq their
focus became Iran, with the most incredible claims fed to a public about that
nation�s leader and policies. Ahmadinejad, having sinned against the Holocaust
religion by hosting a conference on that untouchable topic, has been
transformed into a demonic monster who threatens Americans and Jews everywhere.
He is called a nuclear madman who will exterminate Israel, based on a
repeatedly twisted quote and oblivious of the facts of thousands of Jews living
quite well in Iran. But the Zionist bloc brings us closer to war, writing
belligerent legislation aimed at Iran and getting it rubber-stamped by hundreds
of its colonials in the American, not Israeli, congress.
Tales of the Iranian threat stem from the same feverish source
of psychotic fears and supernatural beliefs that transform Israel from a
nightmare for Palestinians into a theme park for Jews. It is more vital than
ever that we put a stop to this madness, but electing a new member of the
colonized population to the presidency, whether in the USA or Palestine, will
not make a substantial difference. Rather than minor change at the top, we need
major democratic action by the whole population for a peaceful solution.
The colonization of American government will only end with
creation of a real 50-state democracy in the U.S.A., which could help bring
about a real one state democracy in Palestine. Unfortunately, anything less
will mean much more pain and suffering, possibly of epic proportions. And not
only in Palestine and not only for Jews.
