The Racist Concept of Israel 543


Israeli economics minister Naftali Bennett has claimed of Binyamin Netanyahu that “The prime minister is not a private person but the leader of the Jewish state and the whole Jewish world.” Really? Netanyahu is the leader of all the Jews in London, or California, or Ethiopia, who may never have set foot in his state?

This extraordinary remark by Bennett lays bare the fundamental flaw in the very concept of Israel. It is not a modern state, defined as a territory and comprising all the various citizens of whatever descent who live within it. It is rather a vicious racist construct, defined absolutely by race, refusing territorial limits, and with an aggressive theocratic overlay that claims tribal superiority over the entire rest of the world.

Here is a picture of the New Zealand cricket team. In the last twelve months, New Zealand cricket teams have fielded payers including Hamish Rutherford, Peter Fulton, Colin Munro, Dean Brownlie, Ross Taylor, Rob Nicol, Corey Anderson, Grant Elliott, Jimmy Neesham, Kyle Mills, Adam Milne and Mark Craig, not to mention the McCullum brothers. But if I told you that Alex Salmond was the leader of all Scots around the world, including the Black Caps, you would quite rightly call me a nutter.

We would not tolerate the level of racism in any other country that we tolerate from Israel. There was a huge outcry against Labour MP Paul Flynn who dared question whether it was sensible to send a strongly professed Zionist Jew as British ambassador to Israel, but when the Israeli government itself proclaim the political leadership of all Jews all over the world, it is a logical impossibility not to ask the question.

I wish nothing but good to all people, including all Jewish people, but by their increasingly hardline racialist approach, their unceasing encroachment on Palestinian land and their rigorous adoption of all the racist mechanisms of an apartheid state internally, I feat that the window of opportunity for a peaceful future for those Jewish people living in what is currently Israel is closing fast.

It must be universally proclaimed: there is not a single racial group in the whole world from whom worldwide racial claims of political allegiance, or an internal racially based legislative order, are acceptable. Bennett’s remarks are beyond the limit of civilised political discourse.

    “Nor is it surprising that Israel should seek to secure and extend its borders – that’s what nation states do.”

    No it isn’t. That is illegal.

    If Israel wishes to be part of an international community they should abide by the rules of that community. If they don’t abide by the rules of the community they can’t complain about being outcasts.

    US government’s counter terrorism chief Matthew Olson said last week that “there’s no credible information” that the Islamic State (Isis) is planning an attack on America and that there’s “no indication at this point of a cell of foreign fighters operating in the United States”? Or that, as the Associated Press reported, “The FBI and Homeland Security Department say there are no specific or credible terror threats to the US homeland from the Islamic State militant group.

    “no state is going to recognize a group of self-appointed militias lacking even a central command as the legitimate government of a country”

    So why is USUKIS backing ISIS in Iraq and Syria?????

    The deal which gave Kurdistan semi-autonomy from 1991 was the result of genetic alliances between the once Aramaic speaking Kurds and Israel. Barzani and Talebani refused to accept the Islamic groups who had links to CIA and Al Qaida to live in peace in the main cities of Hawler and Sulaimaniya.

    No society that excludes some of its own members will last for long without further unrest. I see no future for the excluders, even if they are best friends of Israel by genetic links, and even if Israel runs Washington and London.

    The right of all people to be treated equally is far more powerful than the rights of ethnicity. CanFuckoff and heebijeebies beware.

    ISIS: the Useful Enemy
    Kobani Kurds Expose the Hypocrisy of the Coalition Against ISIS
    ISIS: the Useful Enemy
    by ISMAEL HOSSEIN-ZADEH

    The dark force of ISIS is apparently an invincible and unstoppable war juggernaut that is mercilessly killing and conquering in pursuit of establishing an Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. In reality, however, it is not as out of control as it appears. It is, indeed, carefully controlled and managed by its creators and supporters, that is, by the United States and its allies in the regions—those who now pretend to have established a coalition to fight it! The U.S., Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and other allies in the region do not really need to fight ISIS to (allegedly) destroy it; all they need to do to extinguish its hellish flames is stop supplying fuel for its fire, that is, stop supplying it with funds, mercenaries, military training and armaments.

    A new police probe has been launched into ­allegations of historic child sex abuse by MPs and other VIPs at a complex of luxury flats in the shadow of Westminster.

    Detectives are probing chilling claims of “abuse parties” at ­upmarket Dolphin Square, where many Members of Parliament had their London homes.

    The fresh investigation follows startling allegations ­published in the Sunday People in July.

    And it comes as Home Secretary Theresa May’s inquiry into claims of a cover-up of Establishment child sex abuse faltered when its chairman quit.

    So why is USUKIS backing ISIS in Iraq and Syria?????

    Isn’t it something to do with delusions of exceptionality?

    To understand the how this kind of mind works better try Lewis Carol, “Alice in Wonderland”. Not quite so wierd, but it gives a flavour of the mental realms inhabited by our rulers and their retainers.

    I mean a you have to be in an exceptional state to back / bomb / back / bomb the same people and believe nobody notices apart from tin-hat wearing conspiracy theorists who are really terrorists so they better watch out. But hey, look where all the USUKIS and ISIS arms come from. Great business! Sell it, bomb it, sell more, bomb more and after all it’s all to protect civilians and keep Washington, New York, London, etc, safe from the massing zombie-islamist-decapitaionalist invasion.

    Once conditioned one becomes a creature of deep unshakable faith, able to swallow the most psakian absurdities without batting an eyelid.

    Craig, I write this with the ends of a hangover, although I think not as bad as yours last week.
    My hangover was due because my friend had submitted himself to a month of abstinence in aid of Macmillan Cancer nurses,and I just had to guide him through his reintroduction to to the demon within us all.
    Thank you for your blogs and honest opinions.
    Someday,I hope, that Israel( I am more and more in agreement with Galloway with not recognising it as a State) and its cronies will come to its senses and realise it can not continue with the atrocities it performs on a daily basis in the Palestinian State.
    Please advertise if you are ever in the North-West of England and I will gladly buy you a pint or three.

    Re the case of the missing trolls, it has always amused me how these pro-Establishment trolls very rarely criticized Craig directly for his attacks on the system they seek to protect; even when they did it was in the very mildest terms, in complete contrast to the hysterical venom they sometimes unleash against other Posters. Strange in the first place that this Blog would be such a popular destination for Posters who must obvious disagree with 95% of what Craig states, yet mostly decline to say so, preferring of course to sabotage the comments sections with trolling nonsense. It’s almost like they don’t want to fall out personally with Craig, because they really want to accepted here as serious commentators despite being stupid and/or vile enough to support the unsupportable .

    However I guess that such a direct attack on that unspeakable Zionist entity occupying Palestine, must have really so stung them, that they can hardly bring themselves to post here again for the moment.

    Will they eventually forgive Craig by turning a much used blind-eye once again, or will their own recognition of their blatant hypocrisy & Zionist fury, finally cause the long delayed final adios ? Only time will tell ! 😀

    I think their job is to make Israel and Jews the discussion point, and with the subject already being that rogue experiment in Palestine then there’s nowt to do until the topic is changed.They’re happy and definitely not gone.

    Yes Mary ,
    Jim Murphy swapping Westmonster for Hollyrood if he can get a seat.Nobody is making way for him so far,and there is quite a bit of doubt that a Blairite,pro War,anti devolution Labour leader will turn the tide that is definitely against them at the moment.He is no match for Sturgeon as there are no policies,only Westmonster sound bites.
    http://wingsoverscotland.com/he-is-the-eggman/
    I think there is quite a bit of soul searching going on in Scottish Labour,but Murphy has no Labour soul.On top of that he’s London’s man and everybody knows it,including Jim.
    Jim Sillars could save the party but he’s pro independence and will never get the chance.

    For some people being Black in a White world – is enough to send them mad.

    The racism in the US is ( thankfully) not what it used to be in terms of openness, degree and by reference to other measures – but it seems that in these trying economic times – Blacks on general average being concentrated at the lower end of the economic heap in the US – are – as are some poor White counterparts – targets of abuse of power.

    So sad.

    The Turkish perspective is interesting when one asks the question, ‘why are the Kurds in Kobani treated differently than those in Irbil? The question reveals British and American deceit and complicity in the murder and displacement of the besieged residents of Kobani, a Kurdish city in Northern Syria.

    These deceitful murders and other war crimes in Syria can be proved in an International court of Law simply because a focus on documenting and recording every strike, every action, every whisper, every lie and every pain has been made good by varied means of communication.

    Curiously and readable, Britain has lately backed off this game of ‘trick or treat’ with IS – we now know why! Only a madcap, frantic, deranged and flipped out United States continue bombing missions that are essentially theatrical, or just for the record.

    MPs to escape expenses investigations after paperwork destroyed by Parliament
    House of Commons authorities have destroyed all evidence of MPs expenses’ claims prior to 2010, meaning end of official investigations into scandal
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/mps-expenses/11204405/MPs-to-escape-expenses-investigations-after-paperwork-destroyed-by-Parliament.html

    ‘John Mann, the Labour MP for Bassetlaw, said members have been kept in the dark about the policy. He will tabled a question, asking Mr Bercow to explain himself in the Commons.

    “It sounds like MPs trying to protect MPs again. It will make the public very suspicious of what the motive is. The old gentlemen’s club is resurrecting itself.”

    Sir Alistair Graham, the former chairman of the Committee on Standards in Public Life, said historians have been denied the chance to study Parliament’s “worst hour”.

    “It is scandalous that anybody has destroyed the records for that period. Who knows what anybody’s motivation was?”

    “The people concerned should know better. There was a strong public interest in retaining this information so that people have access to it, and I’m really very surprised.”

    The revelation comes as seven former Labours MPs and two ex-Lib Dems voted out of Parliament in the wake of the scandal have been re-selected by their parties to contest the 2015 General Election.

    Andrew Dismore, Joan Ryan and Dawn Butler are among former members who lost their jobs in a wave of public anger in the 2010 election, and are now seeking office again.’

    A fantasy rift is being created by the media, between Miliband, his boss Ed Balls of the Financial Crimes and the dancing marionette Jim Murphy, the new keyholder to London’s New Labour Party Scottish branch office (closed Monday to Friday and weekends) executive bogs. Murphy is as ultra-right as they come and is fellow neo-con and Israel-firster Miliband’s hand picked stooge to revive the moribund corpse of their jolly little party in north north Britain. Murphy is Washington’s man too, like Miliband, providing the jocular entertainment at assorted right-wing nutjob think tanks’ drunken soirees as they decide who they’re going to bomb next and how they can make a tidy profit out of the resultant arms sales, reconstruction or booty and even wager on the likely scale of death and suffering they might cause, for no horror is too much for these callous cnuts to revel in. I don’t wonder that they got to Murphy by compromise for there is enough dirt there to be shovelled through to keep a team of navvies in a sweat till long after the Jim is remembered as just another dumb goyim; but rather like Kinnock did, precluding such digging for entrapment purposes, Murphy would more likely have sold himself, volunteered to betray everyone and everything he possibly could, like Kinnock did, for cash for a new motor, but this might be over-stating his worth, he might have settled for a mere jar at the bar than a shiny car. So easily bought these Labour politicians, but Murphy is so transparently corrupt and The expenses trougher to cap them all, that the people surely see right such establishment trojans in an instant and Murphy is right out of the Blair mould, the ceramic pearly-white leer turning to the same sniggering swaggering sneer at some disrespectful minion, they might indeed be of the one Labour party family, if not closer still yet.

    Murphy’s brass neck, his brazen obsession with self-aggrandisement and self-enrichment means he needs the craven media on his side 24/7 or it’ll all come crashing down, his mask cannot help but slip, the demons and monster within, the mass grave of skeletons in his ample closet will keep tumbling out and despite all the especial protection afforded him by the rancid BBC with its staff all infatuated with this wooden performer, giving bogus profundity to merest utterance, however inane, banal or repugnant. His fall, this short in his reig, is already long overdue, the public have had quite enough of him, thank you very much and once sent packing, it’ll soon enough be goodnight from Jim, with a kick up the backside to boot. With the coming spectacular electoral wipeouts, the boycott of toxic brand ‘Tartan Labour’, the implosion into fevered shouty factionalism affronting decorum wherever NewLab’s warring cliques huddle and plot, and their quisling record siding with the Tories in all things and in circumventing democracy, shafting the most vulnerable, and all their many other quirky treacherous ‘All New’ Labour ways, this ever so plausible Gentileman Jim, could be the last ever of his kind and should maybe be preserved now, pickled maybe in formaldehyde, or stuffed and mounted, placed under a stone or something, someone should act now before bits start dropping off and this frightful specimen is lost to posterity. Is there anyone willing to save Jim, the Unnatural History Museum, Madame Tussaud’s, the pathology lab of some leading hospital. Save Jim somebody, he’s as good as dead already.

  • nevermind, there's a future, still

    Well said Tony M. I listened to his poor blethering mouth this morning on Radio 4 and he said absolutely nothing of value, just schmoozed with the journalists, lots of platitudes and not a word about Labours prospects, only how hard it all will be for him. It sounded like a love story without the music in the background, as if he was on a date with his best mate.

    He is a Westminster MP and despite being born in Scotland he has no idea of what is about to happen next year. He will bend over backwards to lick BIBIC backsides, they have the only unfair ways and means to promote him to the hilt.

    He might also be required to put in a couple of extra fact finding shekel tours to the holy land, grovelling at the feet of Liebermann or such like for some extra BICOM monies.

    There must be links to Liam Fox/Adam Werrity and ‘Union Jack’ Jim Murphy, the Glasgow connection; Murphy is being called Netanyahu’s right-hand man in New Labour and now in Scotland too, and trouble seems to follow him wherever he goes. It’s a toss-up whether he puts Israel before Jim Murphy, but close behind in third place after those is New Labour’s place as a Tory catspaw. Scotland doesn’t even get a look in, these pre-occupations must occupy and stretch his Jimnesses’ limited processing capabilities full-time, it might be in the top 100, but can he count that far, what with one hand being kept busy smiting Bibi’s many imaginary enemies, Jim has his hands full as it is, just being Jim Murphy, something has got to give, he’s already cracking up: ye cannae take it Jim, somethings sure to blow.

    Sure, I get things wrong..we all do..none of us are perfect, but to be honest, I think I am blessed with my wife, my life, our children and all our friends..I don’t think anyone in this world can hope for more than that..and yes…I understand…so I wrote this…is it any good?

    As a result of our travels..today..we all kind of went in our seperate ways..but kind of came back together in the same place…so I asked my daughter…how many religions is that…how many countries did I get wrong and say the wrong thing…at the wrong time..

    She said Dad..you didn’t do that…

    Well Definitely

    Buddhist, Muslim, Juadism,..probably Hindu (its hard to tell the difference)…Catholic..well it seems most of us were brought up as Catholics…Now is there Anyone Else I really Piiiissed Off…Well of Course I tried To Pulll..She was effin georgeous…and she did ask have you dried out yet (I did turn up really wet)…I says well I am not that dry yet..that I can ask you for a cuddle..and then I spoke to my wife and said…well I’ve nearly warmed up now..but my nipples are still erect.

    I probably shouldn’t have said that..but it just came out…the band were really good.

    So far as I could tell..it was only The Jewish Guy who pushed me out of the way and stormed out…so I guess I am not welcome to his kids’ Barmitzvah..I didn’t have this problem last night..

    I can’t help it, if I keep getting it wrong. I mean no offence, and I mean no harm. I am Married to an Angel..and I Love her so much…and Everyone Knows and Can See That.

    Sorry..if some of those videos, photographs and words might have appeared on Facebook..I Really do not know how to do that…but…just look at The Quality..

    Aint the Joint Pleasant without the Trolling Wind up Merchants

    Here’s a Good Piece’s By Steven MacMillan –

    “Not since Iraq have I seen BBC News working at propaganda strength like this. So glad I’m out of there”

    These are the words of the former economics editor of the BBC’s Newsnight show, Paul Mason, relating to the BBC’s coverage of the Scottish independence referendum…..

    Pro-Israel Biased

    In a 2012 article titled: ‘As Gaza is savaged again, understanding the BBC’s historic role is vital’, Pilger illustrates how the BBC’s reporting can often give an inverted and distorted picture of the situation in Gaza to its viewers:

    “This is notably true in the Middle East where the Israeli state has successfully intimidated the BBC into presenting the theft of Palestinian land and the caging, torturing and killing of its people as an intractable “conflict” between equals. Standing in the rubble from an Israeli attack, one BBC journalist went further and referred to “Gaza’s strong culture of martyrdom”. So great is this distortion that young viewers of BBC News have told Glasgow University researchers they are left with the impression that Palestinians are the illegal colonisers of their own country. The current BBC “coverage” of Gaza’s genocidal misery reinforces this…. Understanding the BBC as a pre-eminent state propagandist and censor by omission – more often than not in tune with its right-wing enemies – is on no public agenda and it ought to be.”

    The host of the financial show the ‘Keiser Report’ and former stock broker, Max Keiser, has also been a vocal critic of the BBC and their biased nature towards Israel. In an interview in August of this year, Keiser reveals that he was prohibited from mentioning “Israel in any context” when he hosted a show on BBC World News:

    “When we were doing a show for BBC World News called ‘The Oracle’ with Max Keiser a couple of years ago, we only got one editorial direction, and that is we could not mention Israel in any context.”

    Keiser then quit his BBC show due to the editorial policy of the broadcaster, tweeting:

    “As I’ve stated many time before, I quit my BBC show because of their standing edict that I could not mention Israel in any context.”….

    Distorting the Truth in Ukraine

    The BBC’s coverage of Ukraine has once again been deplorable and has warped the truth of the situation in the country. Even reading through the BBC’s news website today, I was again struck by the misrepresentation of the situation in Eastern Ukraine, as they described the people of Lugansk and Donetsk holding an election to determine their future after an illegal Western coup in Kiev, as a ‘rebel vote’ in an article titled: Russia to recognise rebel vote in Donetsk and Luhansk. Marginalising the people of Eastern Ukraine by describing them as “rebels” is appalling. Ukrainians in the East of the country have every right to hold elections to determine their future as many do not feel the Western puppet regime in Kiev represents them or their interests.

    The London broadcaster’s coverage of the Crimean vote in March has also been widely condemned, as the organisation attempted to brand the referendum as illegal and peddle the lie that the majority of the people did not vote to rejoin Russia, despite the evidence suggesting otherwise. Former Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Treasury, economist and former editor of the Wall Street Journal, Paul Craig Roberts, wrote in his response to these distorted reports by the London broadcaster:

    “The BBC has totally discredited itself as a news organization and revealed itself as an organ of Washington’s Ministry of Propaganda. The BBC has made itself totally unreliable. No informed person will ever again believe a BBC report….. The BBC might as well be abolished.” (c) PCR 2014

    Using an Iraqi Photo for a Syrian Massacre

    “Somebody is using my images as propaganda against the Syrian government to prove the massacre”, was the horrified response of the Getty Images photographer Marco Di Lauro when he saw a 2003 photo he took in Iraq published on the BBC website in 2012, claiming it was the scene of a 2012 massacre in the Syrian City of Houla.

    Shame on the ConDem government.

    ‘Homeless families in Britain: Shelter’s analysis

    The charity’s calculations suggest that in the second quarter of 2014, ending in June, there were 90,569 children living in temporary accommodation in England, Scotland and Wales.

    The equivalent figure for 2011 was 76,650, suggesting a rise of 13,919 children without permanent homes in three years.

    The researchers were particularly disturbed to find that in June 2014 some 2,130 families in England were living in bed and breakfast hotels, almost double the figure for the same period in 2011 when the figure was 1,210.

    Families in this position told the charity that they often felt unsafe, with children exposed to drug and alcohol abuse, fighting, swearing and racist language.

    Some said they had to live in one room, share kitchen and bathroom facilities with strangers, and eat meals on the bed or on the floor.’
