Lebanon Latest: Israel Claims Whole World Is With It ...

We awoke this morning to find an amazing assertion by Israel that the whole wide world is with it with regard to it's bloody bombardment of Lebanon. And to learn that by using this as an excuse they not only intend to continue committing war crimes, but to willfully 'scale-up' said insane savagery.

Well, we wonder which world they are referring to, as it's certainly not the same planet as is populated by the many millions of civilized people making up that human race to which we two belong.

Far from it. In fact it's a whole world away.

Much nearer the truth is that it's BushCo's current neon-con American administration that is backing it - in many more ways than one - and backing it wholeheartedly too.

And that several subjugated, and slimy self serving, so-called world leaders calling themselves representatives of their peoples, are craven cowards, and as such are afraid to arise and be counted. Even though it's already painfully obvious that any further appeasement of either 21st century Pax Americana and/or an aspiring, aggresive & expansionist Greater Israel is absolutely not right.

Surely there comes a time when the people must make themselves heard. It happened with Viet Nam and eventually the people prevailed. And judging by increasing international 'popular opinion' it seems to several thousand million ordinary people that an equally serious and sickening situation is seemingly set before us all -- yet again.

So shouldn't we recognize that the time has come when all & every peaceful kind of protest as it's legally possible to employ, has again arrived?

Since otherwise, in the absence of any such outcry coupled with shows of utter global outrage, we are all complicit; we are all accomplices.

And therefore by logical extension -- all self confessed criminals -- and guilty as charged.

We rest our case.

US -- along with our own shamefull BlaiCo government. Even then at very least 50% of each of our county's people contend that they are not represented by the twin hijackers of our supposedly democratic governments.

That, is by no stretch of the imagination "the world". As you said: "far from it."

Somehow the first part of my post went astray.

What I said was that Bolton blocked the UN resolution, for the US -- along with our own shameful BlairCo government.

Which are a hell of a lot more than the Iraqi soldiers you fought alongside will get.


Have I ever mentioned to you that any Iraqi soldier who is wounded gets carted off to the local Iraqi hospital NOT an American military hospital. And that like every other Iraqi taken to a hospital they have to pay for all and any medical treatment they receive

Also an invite to your readers I've a photo up on my blog of Condi in tears. my caption is as follows:

"Secretary of State Rice reacts to the news that the Israeli Airforce has just killed the last Lebanese shoe maker."

But if any of your readers wants to provide an alternative .....

I'm part of this world, and so is everybody I know, and nobbody I know is behind this Israeli government or many of those before it. Just ask an orthodox Jew. Orthodox Jews know from {often painful} experience that Zionists are running things and they are NOT true to Judaeism. These people USE Israel as their own base and bring shame on Judaeism.

Anonymous, I agree with you. I'm sure many observant Jews are horrified by what Israel is doing, in the name of the Jewish people.

That is extremely dangerous and we should be aware of the Zionists' manipulation to foment violence against the Jews in the Diaspora, so they will not resist their aliyah back to Israel.

IMO, A true obsevant Jew remains in the Diaspora, with unhesitating loyalty toward his/her host Nation. He/she is not helping Israel in any way, but bravely spoke up against the daily cruelties and injusticies of Israel.

That is by the way the safest option for a Jew and his/her family. Although the Exile is at one hand feels like a severe punisment, on the other hand it is also the testimony of G_d infinite care and wisdom for the survival of the Jews. It is living in Exile peacefully among his/her neighbours where a Jew and his family is by far the safest.

Just see if any of the Jewish Elite (the instigators) live in Israel? A Rotschild a Warburg and the rest? No they don't, do they? Do they know something, we dont?

Just a little food for thought.

This old American thinks the time for peaceful protest has passed.

As you know, I'm having a hard time accepting this thinking. To me, this is still rooted in the theory that this is all preplanned by neo-cons, and one of those reasons is for natural resources like water and BTC pipeline as Griffon pointed out from this author:

This author thinks that, "..militarisation of the East Mediterranean coastline, sea ways and land routes, extending from the port of Ceyhan across Syria and Lebanon to the Lebanese-Israeli border." is required for Western domination of energy from this area.

I think that's inline with the consensus views here as goes along with "hijacked" Western Gov'ts by neo-cons to carry out this policy.

But, it's comments from people like the Lebanese Druze/Progressive Socialist Party leader which make me think in this scenario, that, as I've said before, Lebanon which has been hijacked by Hizb' and forced into their own destructive agenda.

There are other provocations here than this conceived neo-con agenda rampant in these posts. I do not think Syria and Iran are so blameless. And these are threats and provocations that any Govt must address for the sake of what they are, and not because they just want to get rich with their Texan oil buddies. These are "hijacked" goverments.

My opinion was heavily influenced after I read Azar Nafisi's "Reading "Lolita" in Tehran: A Memoir in Books".

So I can complain all day about Washington for lots of reason, but "burning it to the ground"? What a spoiled brat.

This post is mostly for you Griffon and markfromireland. I said there were holes in Chossudovsky's thesis and by extension in yours. But I got censored on markfromireland's blog for not agreeing with him (he's got a job waiting for him in Wash. with that talent). I suppose that will happen here as well, but I encourage you to read the book. It's thoughtful and genuine and relevant to the Mid-East conflicts.

Dear Anonymous;

Last time we Canadians with the Brits together have done it for you (1812) It resulted some temporary improvement -of well, a century maybe- and gave the White House its present name, as the Yanks hastily whitewashed the building from its burned scars, after the British and Canadians had left.

I think this time around, we need your help too, but we still can do it again, if we stick together.

All that's really needed is a change of occupant, and the same with Downing St. And, in future to be much more careful about who we vote in there.

I would be surprised to hear that half of the Israelis are fully behind the war on Lebanon. I did hear today on Counterspin that over half of Americans think Israel is taking this thing way too far, which is somewhat encouraging except for the way the main stream media doesn’t show even a hint of dissent when it comes to Israel. Nice one Richard. You got my dander up yet again.

Oh, I also found this interesting interview on OhMyNews.

Namaste to you all…

Hi tom, this is the other tom. I'm proud that we toms with the ricks and johns together, constitute about half the men in the Western World. Who can challange us, if we decide to work together? Your link on 'OhMyNews' is a particularly good one.

Rabbi David Weiss made an excellent speech about this issue titled:
Zionism versus Judaism video taped and posted by mgazafi
on You Tube I couldn't hold my big mouth there either. I slapped down on two smirky, disrespectful snipers. One ran away, the other I have defeated. So much for Jewish Supremacism. Who they are kidding?

Now, I don't want to strut around here, how good I am, because of course I'm not, but it is simply so much easier to defend the Truth than to defend convoluted shaky deceptions.

We all should just start to speak the Truth. Imagine the shock waves, when that will happen. Carefully constructed lies will collapse like houses of cards.
