A Nuclear Free Middle East!

Why aren’t they talking about it?

This article is available in:

Here’s the Occupy movements attempt to get some sanity into the Middle East. Read Chris Hedges’ most recent thoughts on #occupyAIPAC and beyond.

The battle for justice in the Middle East is our battle. It is part of the vast, global battle against the 1 percent. It is about living rather than dying. It is about communicating rather than killing. It is about love rather than hate. It is part of the great battle against the corporate forces of death that reign over us—the fossil fuel industry, the weapons manufacturers, the security and surveillance state, the speculators on Wall Street, the oligarchic elites who assault our poor, our working men and women, our children, one in four of whom depend on food stamps to eat, the elites who are destroying our ecosystem with its trees, its air and its water and throwing into doubt our survival as a species.

What is being done in Gaza, the world’s largest open-air prison, is a pale reflection of what is slowly happening to the rest of us. It is a window into the rise of the global security state, our new governing system that the political philosopher Sheldon Wolin calls “inverted totalitarianism.” It is a reflection of a world where the powerful are not bound by law, either on Wall Street or in the shattered remains of the countries we invade and occupy, including Iraq with its hundreds of thousands of dead. And one of the greatest purveyors of this demented ideology of violence for the sake of violence, this flagrant disregard for the rule of domestic and international law, is the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC.

Not so much. You can be socialist-like. But if you are really socialist then give back what you stole. Oh sure you can play "socialists" in your walled off Jewish Disneyland that you made-up from stolen land but it's a charade, a delusion, a deep, deep psychosis that untreated has only led to disastrous, "politicidal" consequences.

And only a Zionist troll would suggest that Adbusters stay out of middle east politics. That is precisely what they do - they kick ass on issues exactly like the theft and ethnic cleansing of Palestine especially as long as it symbolizes the global fight for justice and equality against brutal tyranny and Goebbelsian Propaganda.

But nice try though: to play the liberal Zionist who only sort of thinks that Arabs are inferior and wants them to have happy smiles on their faces when they clean your pools built over the mass graves of murdered Palestinians. Nice fucking try to play the "I'm a civilized Zionist with dual American/"israeli" citizenship who went to Harvard and speaks with an American accent so I can't possibly be a deeply racist lover of Apartheid and war-crime."

You fools keep trying to sell us your lipstick smeared pig as if eventually we'll fall for it. But it only gets worse and worse for you everyday another kid figures out what a sick debacle the invention of "israel" was and is. The wretched snow job of Zionism only further unravels the more you publicly air your thinly veiled racism and historical revisionism. Every day Jews all over the world eschew the racist narratives of their parents and eschew the elitist hogwash that you have to swallow if you are to prop up the failed state of "israel". They not only abandon your racist colonialism but they distance themselves from the chosen myth inherent to Judaism itself. And this bodes very, very badly for you young Trollenyahu. You are a dying breed. "israel" is doomed to the historical dustbin. It cannot hold. It was hastily erected on a faulty foundation and now a mere 64 years later we have reached peak Zionism. It's only downhill from here on out.

And what is it that has done you and your sick experiment in? Information son. And the prevalence of it. Maybe you forgot this is the Information Age. Your attempts to monopolize information have failed. This magazine being case in point. Your many adversaries have beaten you at your own game. The cats out of the bag. Everyone knows now that "israel" is a fraud. A fraud whose run is over.

Palestine fires rockets at innocent israeli citizens, Israel responds and bombs the building that fires the rockets. To me it sounds like Israel is defending itself? What is a country to do when every country around them wants to knock them off the face of the earth? It is amazing that we are so blind to beleive the Palestinian lie. They even teach their children at a young age to hate jews and hate the country of israel. Does that sound like a country that we should be defending? I would like to ask all you liberals out there what you think America should do if Mexico decided to start firing rockets into California, Arizona, and Texas? Lets be realistic everyone get off their high horse and be realistic, the palestinians bread hate.

You forgot the part before the Palestinian fired the rocket. You know, the part where his family's land was stolen to make room for millions of people who had never set foot in the Middle East. And the part where he and his family are kept in a huge prison camp called "Gaza", where they aren't able to travel, receive aid or even have contact with the outside world without Israel's say so. You also forgot the part where Israel bulldozed his family's home because his brother was allegedly involved in resistance against Israel. You also forgot the bit where Jewish "settlements" - armed enclaves of mostly intolerant orthodox Jews - slowly started to eat up what little land you had left.

If you were born into that, and that was your life, what would *you* do?

Or maybe you forgot the Jews were there thousands of years before and were kicked off their land. Maybe the Palestinians can teach their kids the truth instead of telling their children that the Jews are the infedels and should be killed at any chance. Look at all the contries in the middle east is there are reason why Israel is one of the only countries that doesn't have rioting in the streets, and people trying to over throw the government. Maybe you should spend a month in Israel like i have and be walking down the street when some coward fires a rocket blindly into israel trying to kill as many people as possible and see what you think. Yes Israel retaliates as they should, and why do the terrorists put their rockets next to schools and innocent families? Because they are hoping that israel will kill innocent civilians so Palestine can once again look like they victim. You need to open up your eyes and stop listening to what the liberal mainstream media tell's you.

Killing innocents is the vision of terrorists, if you go and retaliate the same way, you are no different.
Fighting against terrorism is like fighting against drug cartels, you cannot fight them with guns, it's a never ending war, if you fight like that. It is necessary to change the mentality of people or you can just commit genocide if you think it's acceptable. Killing will never solve, it will just keep dropping the pieces of the domino.

What you're saying will also be used by powerful people to commit acts of murder. When our leaders want to fire rockets, they will use people like you to justify them. Don't you think you're doing the same thing you're complaining about Palestinians doing?

Allright. This is just ludicrous Catholic fudamentalism. Enough is enough. Get with the program. People are supposed to be buying Activist entertainment, not war.
