Right to exist, right to self-defense.....not!

The following is a post I made to The Algemeiner, an online Jewish publication, in response to "Golda Meir was no J-Streeter", http://www.algemeiner.com/2015/09/08/golda-meir-was-no-j-streeter/#comment-4474211. Like many Jewish publications The Algemeiner has a limited tolerance for the truth when the truth is critical of Israel and its supporters, and so, not surprisingly, the comment was deleted by "moderation". I reprint it here for your consideration.
Make no mistake, I’m an American and a Jew.
For those of you thoroughly infected with the Judiasm-destroying poison of Zionism, here is the antidote to your Kool-aid dreams. Drink deeply and wake up to reality.
We often hear the phrase “Israel’s right to exist” and along with it, “Israel’s right to self-defense.” Hear them endlessly, by propagandists who repeat them endlessly. But endless repetition does not make a thing true. The phantom “legitimacy” of endless repetition is just the stink that remains after well executed propaganda has raped the truth.
Yet the truth exists.
And here it is: a fact-based, truth-based, ethics-based summary.
In 1917, the British Imperial elite and the World Zionist Organization joined forces to take Palestine from the people — 95% Arab — who had lived there for 70 generations, and give it to the Jews/Zionists. Taking what doesn’t belong to you has a name: it’s called stealing.
This “plan” was a crime of conspiracy then, in its embryonic stage, as the theft and murder in it’s execution is a crime today. A crime is still a crime, despite 90 years of control of the media. A crime is still a crime despite 90 years of impunity from prosecution, or 90 years of protection through propaganda. Just as no amount of time can transform a lie into the truth, so too, no amount of time can convert a crime into a legal act.
The Zionist entity called Israel is nothing less than a geopolitical crime-in-progress. This is the truth that the Jews will never be able to “disappear”, and that the digital age and internet have finally set free.
So when next you hear about Israel’s supposed “right to exist”, consider: what crime has a “right to exist”?, what criminal enterprise has a “right to exist”? Add to that: what criminal has a “right to self-defense”? What criminal has the right to commit violence in the furtherance of a crime? What criminal has the right to fight back against the lawful authority that arrives to halt the crime and arrest the criminals?
Israel, the Zionists, their enablers, and their supporters are criminals: thieves and murderers on a global scale. In their criminality they have no “right to exist”, and in their criminality they have no “right to self-defense”.
Yet, they do have rights. And I support those rights. They have the right to surrender to a competent authority. They have the right to a fair trial. If found guilty, they have the right to a proportionate penalty. And finally, once the offenders have “done their time”, they have the right to rejoin society and resume a peaceful cooperative existence.
A time is approaching when the Zionist criminals will not be allowed to continue their crimes. A billion — with a “b” — and a half Muslims outraged at the Zionist-directed war, against Palestinians in particular and all of Islam generally, and a world ever more unsympathetic with disproportionate Israeli brutality will not allow it. The Israeli post-holocaust get-out-of-jail-free card, dog-eared and threadbare from overuse, has expired.
As an American and a Jew I see the danger for Jews the world over. Jews support their fellow Jews. This ancient and enduring tribal loyalty now leads the Jews into danger. They fail to see the likely consequences that arise from being seen as accomplices in Israeli crimes. A new holocaust is being built, the Jews are building it themselves, and the Zionist criminal project Israel is the foundation stone of that looming catastrophe.
When the three hundred million non-Jewish Americans figure out that their country, its Congress, it’s executive, has been taken over by “the Jews” (the Zionists actually, but no one will bother with that distinction), as in ancient Egypt, and ancient Israel in the time of the Romans, and Spain and Portugal of early Roman Catholicism, or most recently during the era of the Nazis, resentment will rise, and time will have run out.
Now is the time for Jews, American Jews in particular to rise above tribal exceptionalism and criminal apologism and ***fix the problem*** before the problem “fixes” the Jews,…yet again.
Good luck.
Here are the crucial sources for the truth underlying the situation the world finds itself in today vis a vis Israel.
The last three are long, scholarly, and frankly, a bit dry. However, the first, for obvious reasons, is quite entertaining.

RT deletion re Assange

It seems I have run afoul of some moderation standard, though for the life of me I can't figure out what it is. My comment was smart and funny and truthful and,... and now it's gone. I used no foul language, I spoke disparagingly of the premier American intelligence agency, and I spoke approvingly for the most part of Julian Assange. I'm no troll, but apparently it seems so to the man behind the curtain -- don't you just hate the anonymity of censorship by moderation? Wouldn't you rather that they had the courage to stand in the sunlight when they arrogate to themselves the right to cancel your freedom of speech? -- the man behind the curtain saw fit to erase me from the record. Will this comment get past the hidden gatekeepers? I suspect not, because of what I'm about to do next? But then you can never tell.

If anyone cares to view the deleted comment it can be found on my blog,

And if, perchance the moderator(s) should happen to see this before deleting it, please feel free to drop by my blog and explain your actions.   Here's the offending comment:

The £12m is chump change for the CIA. I'm sure they have already payed, and gladly, that and more to the Brits (and the Swedes) for keeping Assange locked up in an Ecuadorian jail,...er, embassy. The US doesn't really care about punishing Assange so much as discrediting him, making an example of him, destroying his power as an international heroic figure and inspiration to other would-be Robin Hoods. They accomplish that perfectly by keeping him in jail indefinitely on nothing more than tawdry and groundless non-charges. Assange, who had humiliated the US, has now had the tables turned, all the power and celebrity sucked out of his image, reduced to a self-evidently powerless loudmouth facing five more years of jerking off in what amounts to a one room Ecuadoran jail cell.

Had he been a truly heroic figure he would have broken out of his UK confinement, gone shopping at Harrod's next door, taken a helicopter ride to the Ecuadoran embassy in Oslo, and from the balcony there, thoroughly humiliated the Swedish prosecutors and other assorted US stooges in the Swedish government, while Swedish babes lined up around the block for the chance to party with him all night long. But sadly, after famously poking Uncle Sam in the eye, he lost his nerve, and got boxed in by lawyers who put a leash and choke chain around those once legendary big brass ones.

Game, set, and match to the CIA.

The mess "we" made in Iraq (also Libya, Syria, and Iran)

Re: the mess "we" made in Iraq (also Libya, Syria, and Iran)

“...if we help create a mess, we also have to clean it up.”

This is a commonly held misconception, one that I've been waiting for an opportunity to correct,...to extinguish actually. So if you would, help me to spread this, my corrective meme, far and wide because its target, the above malicious piece of illogic, like a deeply embedded tick, needs to be cut out and the wound cleaned and cauterized.

This notion, that you have to “clean up the mess” -- the mess you made -- came to prominence with Colin Powell's Pottery Barn rule, where you will no doubt recall it took the form “If you break it you own it”. (What hogwash!, but I'll get to that directly.) look closely though, look for the Imperial label, some unwarranted baggage, rhetorical scar, an imperial “tic”, the remnant of a bygone age of Imperial presumption that cannot be shed and so is carried along like a carelessly trundled corpse trailing an errant limb. That convenient appendage, the “Responsibility”, ...the duty, the burden, the weight of “a debt of honor”, lies heavy upon the shoulders of he who “breaks it”.  The debt of personal responsibility, of unavoidable personal responsibility.  Oh! the unrelinquishable, unshakable, unshirkable weight of personal responsibility,... “I cannot tell a lie. I cut down the cherry tree.”  “I broke it, I just have to clean up the mess.”  I just have to.

I don’t think so.  

Let's try it again. This time, let's call it “Jeff's Pottery Barn Rule”.  Here’s how it goes:

“If you break it, the first thing you have to do is pay the damages, the next thing is you get the h*** out of the store and you don’t come back.”

The “compulsory” obligation to "clean up your mess", is akin to the notion that “if you break it you own it”, and brings with it certain consequences -- benefits might be a better word -- somewhat hidden. Perhaps no one noticed,...Oh! sweet inattention -- you have acquired the privileges of ownership, oh sweet victory! The responsibilities of ownership of course, as well, but what's that? Anyway, the problem part of “you broke it” now seems, courtesy of the clean up "obligation", to have gone away somewhere. Well then, moving right along, could there be an upside?   Hmmm, let’s see. You own it now That's pleasant. The glass is half full. Sow's ear becomes silk purse, isn't magic wonderful!

I don't think so. If you break it you pay for the damages, and get the hell out.  Over here at the counter, empty your wallet. Now get the hell out.

You see my point?

You made the mess by being incompetent, arrogant, careless, criminal, and indifferent to the welfare of others.  And precisely because your specialty is breaking things, and not cleaning things up, it's best that you leave the cleaning up of your many messes to people who actually know how to clean things up.  People that are actually good at it.  On the upside, at least you are rich enough so that when you go around breaking things you can dig down and pony up the cash to pay for the damages.

So pay your bill,... now,... and don’t come back.  And you know what?... Your driver's license is revoked as well. You’re just too dangerous.
