ZIONIST ISRAEL IS THE ROOT CAUSE OF THE MIDDLE EAST CONFLICT AND THE WORLD TERRORISM
by Syarif Hidayat
God (Allah SWT) Appeared to Abraham (Ibrahim AS) and said: ‘I am giving you this land.’ Paul wrote that the Holy Land was promised to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and their descendants. These are the Palestinian Muslims, Christians, and Jews, who have been living in the land for thousands of years. The Bible never mentioned that God promised it solely to Jews.
Here Are 4 Reasons Why Zionist Israel is the root cause of the Middle East Conflict:
1) Israel Is Not A Fulfillment Of Biblical Prophecy:
The appellation “Israel” in the Bible primarily refers to the “faithful” who make up the “Church.” The “Church” as described by St Paul in Chapter 9 of his Epistle To The Romans is made up of the “remnant” of the Jews and the “Gentiles” of the nations. Together, as St Paul writes in his Epistle To The Ephesians, are fused into being “one new man” known as “Christians.”
2) The UN Partition Of *1947* Was Illegal:
The UN awarded the Jews 55% of the land of Palestine even though their current holdings totaled only about 6% and their population was only about 35% (608,000) of all the Palestinians (1,237,000). The plan also gave the most fertile lands to the Jews but the mountainous regions to the Arabs. In their War Of Aggression Of 1948 the Jews took additional Arab lands bringing their total holdings to about 75% of Palestine which they kept and never gave back. Even though this additional land was illegally gained in violation of the Hague Regulations (1907) and the UN Charter (1945) which both included the basic legal principle that it is illegal to acquire territory by force, these new boundaries soon became the “official” boundaries of the new State of Israel.
3) The State Of Israel Has Created Chaos From Its Inception:
War crimes, International terrorism due to the illegal “rogue state of Israel,” political corruption by the Jewish Lobby, defamation of character to all critics of Israel, Jewish racist ideology, world wide instability due to Zionist hegemony, growing Western fascism, American debt & inflation for subsidizing Israel, are additional reasons why the Zionist Israel is the roots of the Middle East problem.
4) Peace with justice is not Israeli aim:
According to Israel Shahak, “The wish for peace, so often assumed as the Israeli aim, in fact is not a principle of Israeli policy, while the wish to extend Israeli domination and influence is.” and “Israel is preparing for a war, nuclear if need be, for the sake of averting domestic change not to its liking, if it occurs in some or any Middle Eastern states… Israel clearly prepares itself to seek overtly a hegemony over the entire Middle East…, without hesitating to use for the purpose all means available, including nuclear ones.”
The Israeli nuclear arsenal has profound implications for the future of peace in the Middle East, and indeed, for the entire planet. It is clear from Israel Shahak that Israel has no interest in peace except that which is dictated on its own terms, and has absolutely no intention of negotiating in good faith to curtail its nuclear program or discuss seriously a nuclear-free Middle East.
Israel has a nuclear knife to America’s throat
However, Americans should consider carefully Israel’s nuclear weapons and its threats to use them if the United States ever withdraws its full backing or if Israel’s possession of its stolen lands is ever seriously endangered. Threats include retaliatory — or even preemptive — attacks on Muslim, Russian and even European targets.
Any attack on Russia, of course, would quickly bring massive retaliation against Israel’s greatest ally — the United States. No doubt this is a major reason U.S. political leaders approach Israel with fear and respect — and rarely punish it for its violations of U.S. law, United Nations Resolutions, the Geneva Convention and a variety of other treaties. Israel has a nuclear knife to America’s throat.
However, just as threatening to Americans, and the world, is Israel’s aggressive stance towards using its own 200 to 500 nuclear weapons — ones which it has never formally admitted exist. These weapons can be deployed by air, missile or submarine to almost any place on earth.
CRITICS OF ISRAEL MURDERED OR MALIGNED
CRITICISING ISRAEL is to put one’s life and reputation at risk. One of the examples is the intense maligning by Jews of two US academics, John Mearsheimer of the University of Chicago and Stephen Walt of Harvard University They are the authors of the best seller The Israel Lobby and US Foreign Policy which is highly critical of the powerful Jewish Lobby in the US.
In an interview of Mearsheimer & Walt by the BBC Here Walt told of the many personal attacks made against himself & Mearsheimer by the Jews: — “There have many personal attacks on us. For example, the Washington Post [owned by Jewish Meyer-Graham family – BN] had run four separate pieces on our book and three of the four were harshly negative and a couple of them raised the Anti-Semitism charge quite explicitly – and that’s just the Washington Post.”
Remember:—JEWISH TERRORISTS ASSASSINATED Count Bernadotte on September 17 1948. The day before Count Bernadotte was assassinated by the Jewish Stern Gang he submitted the following Report to the General Assembly of the UN entitled The Right of Repatriation:—“No settlement can be just if the right of Arab refugees to return to their homes from which they have been dislodged is not granted. An offence against the principles of elemental justice is made if these innocent victims are denied the right of return to their homes while Jewish immigrants flow into Palestine.” — The next day the Jews assassinated this truly ‘righteous Gentile!’
As a journalist I have visited Israel several times and I have met several Israeli Government officials and a few IDF officers. I also visited Hebrew University and I met some people there. From what I learnt there I would like to tell you that ZIONISM is different from JUDAISM: Zionism is followed by the majority of Israelis, while Judaism, it seems to me, is followed by the minority in Israel but majority outside Israel. The contemptible treatment of the Palestinians (Muslims and Christians) by the Israeli government is supported and approved of by most Israeli Jews but not by all Jews. There are some Jews who are totally opposed to Zionism and to Israel’s policies in the occupied territories of the West Bank.
ZIONISM NOT DIFFERENT FROM NAZISM
Zionism is … racist and it is Biblically inspired (rather than spiritually inspired). Being a fundamentalist political movement, Zionism is not categorically different from Nazism. Only when we understand Zionism in its nationalist and racist context will we begin to comprehend the depth of its atrocities, according to Gilad Atzmon.
Zionists are experts at propaganda, disinformation, denying facts and outright lying. Any criticism of Zionism or of Israel is labelled as “anti-semitism”, where this is interpreted to mean “anti-Jewish”. This is a slanderous falsehood. Criticism of Zionism is criticism of a particularly ugly political movement, not criticism of a religion or of the adherents of a religion. One may be critical of Zionism and of Zionists while at the same time being quite tolerant of, or well-disposed toward, or even an adherent of, the Jewish religion.
Israeli attacks against Palestinians, I think, could not be considered as conventional war which usually is Army vs Army.
While in Palestine, it is the modern IDF troops equipped with modern weaponry including modern tanks, modern war planes and backed-up by more than enough Nuclear arsenal, biological and chemical weapons (bombs) as well as any other modern weaponry you can imagine of vs Palestinians equipped only with hand-held weapons, obsolete (ragtag) rockets and stones. That is not WAR (conventinal war or modern war, I don’t know exactly what it is called). But it is more suitable to be called as a “hunt and kill” Palestinians adventure for IDF troops. These are totally terrorist, murderous and criminal actions. These Israeli actions are crimes against humanity!
Israel as a Terrorist State
What is the difference between State terrorism and individual terrorist acts? If we understand this difference we’ll understand also the evilness of the US policies in the Middle East. – Liv Grinberg in his article: “Israel’s State Terrorism.”
When Yassir Arafat was put under siege in his offices and kept hostage by the Israeli occupation forces, he was constantly pressed into condemning terror and combatting terrorism. Israel’s State terrorism is defined by US officials as “self-defense”, while individual suicide bombers are called terrorists.
“Terrorism” is here taken to mean the practice of the deliberate inflicting (either directly or indirectly) of harm, injury, death and/or destruction upon a civilian target sufficient to cause horror, revulsion or despair among civilian populations and/or their political leaders, with the goal of causing those populations or political leaders to act in a way desired by the terrorists.
A terrorist state is a state which practices terrorism, even if it pretends (or rather, lies) to the world that it does not. It hardly needs to be pointed out that Israel is a terrorist state. Brutal repression of, and bloody attacks on, Palestinian civilians with the official Israeli aim of causing a change in the policies or actions of the Palestinian leadership is a clear case of terrorism.
Israel has been a terrorist state from its beginning, and has its foundations in terrorism. Three Israeli prime ministers were or are terrorists:
- Menachim Begin took part in terrorist acts in the 1940s, including the attack on the King David Hotel which killed 91 people.
Begin ordered … the destruction of the central British administrative offices in the King David Hotel.
In 1946, Jewish terrorists agitating for their own state in British-occupied Palestine blew up Jerusalem’s King David Hotel, killing 91. Two years later, an independent Israel was established. “There were a lot of innocent British women and children killed there,” says Hanson. “But in the end, it worked; the British left.”
- Yitzhak Shamir was the operations commander, and later leader, of the Stern Gang, a terrorist group which was responsible for a string of political assassinations.
Shamir was a member of two militant Jewish underground organizations which … were active in counter-terrorist acts against Arabs as well as sabotage against the British.
In post-war British-mandated Palestine the words Stern Gang equalled “terrorism” — assassinations, bombings, the full works. … Yitzhak Shamir had been the gang’s operations commander. … By appointing Shamir Foreign Minister, Prime Minister Menachem Begin had selected the organiser of two famous assassinations: the killing of Lord Moyne, the British Minister representative in the Middle East, in 1944, and that of Count Folke Bernadotte, the UN’s special Mediator on Palestine, in 1948.
During the fight for Jewish statehood, extremist military groups sometimes resorted to the use of terrorist tactics. One such instance occurred in 1948 when members of the Jewish underground organization LEHI (Fighters for the Freedom of Israel) killed UN Peace Mediator Count Folke Bernadotte to protest his diplomatic efforts to modify the Palestine partition plan. … Yitzhak Shamir reputedly played a role in planning the assassination; however, he was never tried and went on to become Prime Minister of Israel.
- Ariel Sharon initiated the Sabra-Shatila massacre in which between 1000 and 3000 people (mostly Palestinians) were murdered, and now leads a terrorist campaign against all Palestinians living in the occupied territories of the West Bank.
As commander of the notorious Unit 101, Sharon led attacks on Palestinian villages in which women and children were killed. The massacre in the West Bank village of Qibya, on October 14, 1953, was perhaps the most notorious. His troops blew up 45 houses and 69 Palestinian civilians — about half of them women and children — were killed.
No one has ever been tried for the massacre, but an official Israeli commission of inquiry found that Israel’s defense minister at the time, Ariel Sharon, “bears personal responsibility” as well as “indirect responsibility.” It was Sharon, after all, who had ordered the Israel Defense Forces to invade Beirut and surround the camps. … Like Pinochet and other war criminals, Sharon and his Phalangist underlings should be brought to book; if they can successfully evade justice, then it will give heart to killers everywhere. — Marking a Massacre, The Nation
Sharon’s preemptive logic undercuts all form of dialogue and negotiations. Its rule of thumb is violence, and then more violence, whether it manifests itself as a military attack or as an aggressive act of dispossession. So while it may seem that the bloody routine is in some way preordained, it is actually Sharon’s preemptive zeal alongside Hamas’ and Islamic Jihad’s fundamentalism that has clouded the horizon and concealed, as Arendt might have said, the possibility for a better future. — Neve Gordon, Sharon’s Preemptive Zeal, Counterpunch.
The Zionist leaders admit themselves that they are the wrong doers!
“If I were an Arab leader, I would never sign an agreement with Israel. It is normal; we have taken their country. It is true God promised it to us, but how could that interest them? Our God is not theirs. There has been Anti – Semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault ? They see but one thing: we have come and we have stolen their country. Why would they accept that?” – David Ben-Gurion, founding father of Israel.
Moshe Dyan – 1969: “We came here to a country that was populated by Arabs and we are building here a Hebrew, a Jewish state; instead of the Arab villages, Jewish villages were established. You even do not know the names of those villages, and I do not blame you because these villages no longer exist. There is not a single Jewish settlement that was not established in the place of a former Arab Village.”
“I don’t mind if after the job is done you put me in front of a Nuremberg Trial and then jail me for life. Hang me if you want, as a war criminal. What you don’t understand is that the dirty work of Zionism is not finished yet, far from it.” – Former Prime Minister of Israel, Ariel Sharon, speaking to Amos Oz, editor of Davar, on Dec. 17, 1982.
Zionists attack on USS Liberty – an attempt to initiate World War III!!!
By 1948, under David Ben Gurion’s direction, the Israeli government developed the Israeli Terrorist Cell, Unit 131. In the mid 1950s, the U.S. was friends with Gamal Abdel Nasser and Egypt. Ben Gurion, an avid Zionist and the Israel’s first Prime Minister, envisioned an Egyptian terrorist attack against the U.S. in order to destroy that alliance.
However, that wasn’t a probability, given the relationship between the two countries. So the Israeli government developed a pattern of using young Israelis who disguised themselves as terrorists of whichever country they were attempting to implicate. This concept would be applied during Operation Cyanide, involving the USS Liberty, in an attempt to initiate World War III.
On June 3, 1967, the USS Liberty was trolling in international waters off the coast of the Gaza Strip where the ship was to engage in an “extended independent surveillance operation in the eastern Mediterranean.” Deanna Spingola in her article: “We are not going to War over a Bunch of Dead Sailors” – The USS Liberty, a flubbed-up false flag,”says Israel launched a long-planned war against her Arab neighbors at 7:45 a.m. Sinai time on June 5, 1967.
In 1982, Menachem Begin, then Israel’s Prime Minister, admitted, “The Egyptian army concentrations in the Sinai approaches do not prove that Gamal Abdel Nasser was really about to attack us. We must be honest with ourselves. We decided to attack him.” Mordechai Bentov, a member of Israel’s coalition cabinet during the war, said, “All this story about the danger of extermination has been a complete invention and has been blown up a posteriori to justify the annexation of new Arab territories.”
Zionists atrocities against Arabs: The slaughter of Prisoners
Israel had air supremacy immediately after their surprise attack on Egypt. Within hours, Israeli jets pummeled twenty-five air bases from Damascus, in Syria to Luxor. They used machine guns, mortar fire, tanks and air power in their assault against the Jordanian section of Jerusalem and the Jordan River’s west bank. Israeli tanks and auxiliary personnel transporters assaulted the Sinai moving towards the Suez Canal.
They transformed the area into a “massive killing field” as Egyptian deaths, according to one Israeli general, amounted to between 7,000 to 10,000 people. His losses were only about 275 soldiers. Indian peacekeeper soldiers, flying the U.N. flag, were also attacked on their way to Gaza. Fourteen peacekeeper soldiers were killed in what one Indian officer called the “deliberate, cold-blooded killing of unarmed U.N. soldiers.”
The Israelis had captured some Egyptians and held them in the town of El Arish. By June 8, the prisoners had become annoyances as the Israelis had no place to house them and insufficient forces to guard them and too few vehicles to move them to regular prison camps.
Consequently, the Israelis transformed the town into a “slaughterhouse” by methodically “butchering” their Egyptian prisoners. They lined up sixty unarmed Egyptians with their hands tied behind their backs and, with machine guns, slaughtered them in cold blood. Another group of thirty prisoners were killed nearby.
The Israelis directed some Bedouins to bury those victims. In another incident, the number of Egyptian prisoners killed totaled about 150, as witnessed by an Israeli journalist, Gabi Bron. Some prisoners were forced to dig graves for the dead and then they were shot. Aryeh Yitzhaki, an Israeli army historian, and other officers collected testimony from dozens of soldiers who admitted killing Egyptian prisoners.
According to Yitzhaki, Israeli soldiers murdered about 1,000 Egyptian prisoners in the Sinai, including about 400 in El Arish. Ariel Sharon was close to El Arish at the time of the incidents. Yitzhaki said that the Israeli leadership, Dayan, Rabin and others knew about the slaughter.
The Liberty, close to El Arish at the time, and loaded with $10.2 million of sensitive equipment eavesdropped on Israel’s Six-Day War with Egypt, then known as the United Arab Republic. The Israelis were aware by 10:55 the morning of June 8 that a clearly-marked U.S. ship was off the coast and unmistakably visible from El Arish.
On that day, June 8, 1967, without any warning and apparently without reason, the Israeli Navy and Air Force attacked the ship with torpedoes, rockets, white phosphorous, cannons and armor-piercing bullets. The Israelis used napalm, a flammable liquid or jellied gasoline to turn the Liberty’s deck into a 3,000-degree holocaustic firestorm. Thirty-four Americans were killed and 171 others were wounded, one of which died later from his wounds. Napalm is designed to kill and maim, generate panic and cause confusion.
The first wave of attacks, comprised of as many as eight planes using heat-seeking missiles, destroyed the transformers (miraculously, all except one) which fed the aerial systems. This was a well-planned, premeditated strategy to prevent the USS Liberty from alerting the world of this murderous attack. The surveillance ship was no longer able to listen in to the war or send messages. If that was the objective of the attack, then the goal was met and the attack should have subsided.
However, the real objective was to slaughter the crew and send the ship to the bottom. Finally, the planes left only to be followed up by three surface craft which fired torpedoes. One hit below the water line and made a hole which measured 45 feet by 34 by 37. Amazingly, the ship didn’t sink but listed eleven degrees. When the crew inflated the lifeboats, the torpedo boats even destroyed those boats. (Deanna Spingola has been a quilt designer and is the author of two books. She has traveled extensively teaching and lecturing on her unique methods.)
ZIONIST GAZA BLOCKADE: The Giant prison of 1.6 million Palestinians!
Here is a statement signed by over 40 NGOs, humanitarian and UN organizations denouncing Israel’s blockade:
We, United Nations and non-governmental humanitarian organisations, express deepening concern over Israel’s continued blockade of the Gaza Strip which has now been in force for two years.
These indiscriminate sanctions are affecting the entire 1.5 million population of Gaza and ordinary women, children and the elderly are the first victims.
The amount of goods allowed into Gaza under the blockade is one quarter of the pre- blockade flow. Eight out of every ten truckloads contains food but even that is restricted to a mere 18 food items. Seedlings and calves are not allowed so Gaza’s farmers cannot make up the nutritional shortfall. Even clothes and shoes, toys and school books are routinely prohibited.
Furthermore the suffocation of Gaza’s economy has led to unprecedented unemployment and poverty rates and almost total aid dependency. While Gazans are being kept alive through humanitarian aid, ordinary civilians have lost all quality of life as they fight to survive.
The consequences of Israel’s recent military operation remain widespread as early recovery materials have been prevented from entering Gaza. Thousands of people are living with holes in their walls, broken windows and no running water.
We call for free and uninhibited access for all humanitarian assistance in accordance with the international agreements and in accordance with universally recognised international human rights and humanitarian law standards. We also call for a return to normalized trade to enable the poverty and unemployment rates to decrease.
The blockade of the Gaza Strip is creating an atmosphere of deprivation in Gaza that can only deepen the sense of hopelessness and despair among people. The people of Gaza need to be shown an alternative of hope and dignity. Allowing human development and prosperity to take hold is an essential first step towards the establishment of lasting peace.
Operation “Cast Lead” Victims
Operation “Cast Lead”, Israel’s 22-day military offensive on the Gaza Strip which ended on 18 January 2009, killed more than 1,400 Palestinians, a majority of whom were civilians, and destroyed large areas of the Gaza Strip. Thirteen Israelis, including three civilians, were killed during the conflict.
Israeli forces killed civilians using precision weaponry, launched indiscriminate attacks which failed to distinguish legitimate military targets from civilians, and attacked civilian property and infrastructure, UN facilities, and medical facilities and personnel.
The Gaza War, known as Operation Cast Lead (מבצע עופרת יצוקה) in Israel and as the Gaza Massacre (مجزرة غزة) in Gaza, was a three-week bombing and invasion of the Gaza Strip by Israel, and several rocket attacks on south of Israel which started on December 27, 2008 with a surprise air strike from Israel. Israel’s stated aim was to stop rocket fire into Israel and arms import into the Gaza strip. Israeli forces attacked police stations and other Hamas government buildings in the opening assault, striking in the densely populated cities of Gaza, Khan Younis and Rafah.
An Israeli ground invasion began on January 3. Infantry commanders were given an unprecedented level of access to coordinate with air, naval, artillery, intelligence, and combat engineering units during this second phase. Various new technologies and hardware were also introduced. On January 5, IDF forces began operating in the densely populated urban centers of Gaza. During the last week of the offensive (from 12 January), Israel mostly hit targets it had damaged previously and struck Palestinian rocket-launching units.The war ended on January 18, when Israel first declared a unilateral ceasefire, followed by Hamas’ announcing a one-week ceasefire twelve hours later.Israel completed its withdrawal on January 21.
The conflict resulted in between 1,166 and 1,417 Palestinian and 13 Israeli deaths.
The Unmentionable Source of World Terrorism
[Israel, the] creation, then guardian of the west’s empire in the Middle East, the Zionist state remains the cause of more regional grievance and sheer terror than all the Muslim states combined. Read the melancholy Palestinian Monitor on the Internet; it chronicles the equivalent of Madrid’s horror week after week, month after month, in occupied Palestine. No front pages in the West acknowledge this enduring bloodbath, let alone mourn its victims. Moreover, the Israeli army, a terrorist organization by any reasonable measure, is protected and rewarded in the west. – John Pilger: “The Unmentionable Source of Terrorism”
The terrorists of the 1940’s were given full amnesty after establishing their nation, so instead of being brought to justice, they were able eventually to take power and keep all dissenters in line through terror and fear. The terrorists have become statesmen of the Jewish State. They have little moral ground to condemn modern Arab terrorists for doing what they themselves did in the 1940’s and 1950’s and have continued to do to the present day. — Zionism in Bible Prophecy: Part 6.
And, of course, the U.S.A, the renowned World Preacher of Human Right and Democracy, continues to support the terrorist state of Israel by giving it tanks, planes, rocket launchers and financial support to the tune of three billion dollars a year (why?), with which Israel has built up the fourth-largest military machine in the world. Israel’s hegemony over the Middle East will continue, however, only as long as American money makes it possible. One day this money will no longer be forthcoming, for one reason or another. That will be Israel’s Day of Reckoning. And none too soon either. (HSH)
