Blame the Jews – Part Umpteenth

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on May 28, 2008

Blame the Jews!

Provocations as Pretexts for Imperial War: From Pearl Harbor to 9/11

I have no problem agreeing with the author about his points about the Provocations as Pretext for attacking other nations, which it is obvious and clear from history that the US has been engaged in since its inception.

But when he starts claiming that “the Zionists” (Zionists is just a code word for Jews) planned and executed 9/11 he passes the line between reality and antisemitic bull-shit.

Like most Antisemites/AntiZionists he fails to make the distinction between Jews and Zionists (to be distinguished from zionists who support Israel’s right to exist) and Jews and Israel as a nation.

Conspiracy Theories are very nice in that they provide explanations to life’s hardships that provide the Conspiracy Theorists with a sense of control (“I know why this is happening to me”.)

Unfortunately for the Conspiracy Theorists all CTs at one point or other leave the realm of the plausible and enter the realm of implausible – which only leaves the CTists vulnerable to exposure as frauds and charlatans, which in the end are only serving themselves.

Israel, as the only Democracy in the Middle East, has a very precarious position (regardless of their relations to the Palestinians) because it is surrounded by nations that has only one wish and one goal for her in the end – total annihilation.

Claming, as the author does, that Israel is engaged in a war on Iran and Syria (and not the other way around) is ludicrous – especially since Israel has not threatened either Iran or Syria with “wiping them of the face of the earth”. If Israel and/or the Zionists had truly been behind the War on Terror, the US would not have attacked Afghanistan and Iraq – they would have gone after Iran and Syria. They didn’t.

Neither Iran, nor Syria care about the Palestinians enough NOT to make good their threats to nuke Israel.

It must be nice to live in a world where any evil in the world can be attributed to ONE source, instead of having to sort through the political and personal diversities that is a natural part of being human.

Conspiracy Theories

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on July 3, 2007

A conspiracy theory attempts to attribute the ultimate cause of an event or chain of events (usually political, social, or historical events), or the concealment of such causes from public knowledge, to a secret, and often deceptive plot by a covert alliance of powerful or influential people or organizations. Many conspiracy theories claim that major events in history have been dominated by conspirators who manipulate political happenings from behind the scenes. From Wikipedia

“Conspiracy theories are very “nice” – because they create a simply picture of complex matters, and they contain enough elements of plausibility to be believable. And they provide people with a scape-goat for the world’s ills. It doesn’t matter if it’s religious conspiracies, political conspiracies or just alien conspiracies – they all serve as proxy for a sense of powerlessness and in the right hands they can be deadly – like the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” which lay the foundation of modern Antisemitism, which ultimately lead to the Holocaust. Conspiracy theories serve as a counter to the sense of powerlessness – if people can “unveil” who is really behind it all, they create a sense of being in control within themselves – if nothing else they have exposed “the enemy” and can rally together with others to do battle on that “enemy”.”
“…Why shouldn’t they have, after all it had all the trimmings of a good conspiracy theory – dark, clandestine meetings, money, a plan that threatens all of humanity and a clear perpetrator, that lived in the neighborhood?…” (From some of my Blog Entries keyword Conspiracy Theory)

It is a good idea to withdraw from discussions that start to look for a culprit that is “invisible” or “sinister” assemblies, meetings, sources that cannot be tracked. They have the hallmark of turning into conspiracy theories. They seldom have anything to do with the Truth of matters, and they divert our energy from worthwhile things such as working for the eradication of poverty, fight environmental destruction etc.If you can hold your bearings and not get sucked into the madness, a conspiracy theory can be great fun as entertainment – especially if the conspiracy theorists are clueless and gullible, because they will eat anything as long as it plays into their paranoia.

Who knows you might even be able to mix the current US admin. in with it’s political adversaries and claim that Al Gore’s entourage deliberately chose 07/07 as the date for a “pop concert” because secretely he was/is involved in the cover-up of 9/11…

Eternal Soldier

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on June 24, 2006

“He’s five feet two and he’s six feet four
He fights with missiles and with spears
He’s all of 31 and he’s only 17
He’s been a soldier for a thousand years He’s a Catholic, a Hindu, an atheist, a Jain,
a Buddhist and a Baptist and a Jew
and he knows he shouldn’t kill
and he knows he always will
kill you for me my friend and me for you And he’s fighting for Canada,
he’s fighting for France,
he’s fighting for the USA,
and he’s fighting for the Russians
and he’s fighting for Japan,
and he thinks we’ll put an end to war this way And he’s fighting for Democracy
and fighting for the Reds
He says it’s for the peace of all
He’s the one who must decide
who’s to live and who’s to die
and he never sees the writing on the walls But without him how would Hitler have
condemned him at Dachau
Without him Caesar would have stood alone
He’s the one who gives his body
as a weapon to a war
and without him all this killing can’t go on He’s the universal soldier
and he really is to blame
His orders come from far away no more
They come from him, and you, and me
and brothers can’t you see
this is not the way we put an end to war.”

This was posted by my wife in a discussion about the on-going American occupation of Iraq – we both disagree strongly with it. I am old enough to have been aware of the atrocities carried out by American Troops in Vietnam and to have demonstrated against the War there – and I can clearly see the parallells, and the similarities, both in atrocities and in motives behind those two occupations. OH, I have heard the official American explanations for both wars/occupations – you know what I say about that? BULLSHIT, utter HORSE MANURE. The United States of America have never ever been present militarily anywhere unless there’s been either a political or a financial incentive. It is no co-incidence that the biggest business in the US, besides drugs, is the weapons industry. Nor is it a co-incidence that the US’ “war on terror” target people in an area that is the richest in the world in oil. Proof: Since the WWII different terror organizations, state sponsored or independently, have been operating in diffrent parts of the world; England/Ireland, Spain, Germany, Indonesia, Tibet…and in neither of these areas have wee seen so much as single US protest. NOT ONE. Does any of these areas produce anything that would be interesting to the US? No. Nothing. If Tibet had been rich in either drugs or oil, you can be certain that the US would be all over China, politically, militarily, through covert and overt ops to make sure that the US could control those resources. It is no co-incidence that the Bush Family is playing finacial hanky panky with the Saudis – by doing so, not only do they secure the Family Treasury for years to come, they also make sure that they have both power and control over whatever the Saudis control, overtly or covertly. For this they are prepared to use any kind of violence, manipulation and ‘statistics’. The 2000 and 2004 elections, the lies about the WMDs, the incarceration of innocent people in KZ camps, whisking away of neutral States’ citizens to torture chambers in remote locations and the legislation that makes it possible for the Tree and the Shrub to spy on completely innocent citizens and their friends, are ample proof of this “preparedness”. As it was no co-incidence that JFK was murdered shortly after he decided to pull the Troops out of Vietnam, so it is no co-incidence that 9/11 happened shortly after the Shrub had been installed in the White House. And who is suffering? The Eternal Soldier. Shalom!
