Israel: The Not-So-New Fascism –
Palestinians, The Not-So-New Unter-Menschen

By William Bowles

14 May, 2010

The parallels are obvious to see, unless of course you don’t want to see the ‘victims’ turn into the victimizers. Such is the case with Israel, which quite properly should be described as a white racist, settler colonial state. But this is a description that is ‘beyond the Pale’ for the ‘civilized’ nations to accept.

For decades the Zionist entity has played the victim card, even appropriating the term ‘Holocaust’ as its own, this in spite of the fact that millions of Roma, Slavs, Russians, Homosexuals, the ‘mentally feeble’ and other ‘undesirables’ (‘Unter-Menschen’ or under-people) were exterminated in Nazi concentration camps. In fact collectively, a far greater number than that of the European Jews, amongst which I might add are my own relatives.

Apologists for Israel talk of ‘never again’ which roughly translated means never again for white people as once more the ‘race card’ becomes the rationalization for Genocide. The ‘civilized’ nations once again avert their eyes from the unfolding tragedy that is Palestine, now sixty-two years in the making.

But in spite of a media/political blackout in the West on events in Occupied Palestine, the heinous war crime committed by Zionist imperialism becomes ever more difficult to hide.

Just how desperate things are getting for Zionist imperialism can perhaps be best illustrated by the following:

“The overall Obama policy will be to push Israel to the brink, using financial and military blackmail against the Netanyahu government, while maintaining control over American Jews to prevent any protests or backtalk.”

“The more Israel will offer, the more the Obama Administration will tighten the screws. No offer will be good enough, and Israel will be blamed for every breakdown in talks and every bit of violence that takes place. The media will portray Israel and particularly Netanyahu as extremist and intransigent. Hamas will be slowly whitewashed in the media, the same way that Arafat's goons were, (assuming that they prove more willing to cooperate in creating a positive media image of themselves than Ahmadinejad is.)” — ‘Obama's Plan to Destroy Israel’, Dan Greenfield, Israel National News, 9 May, 2010

The writer tells us,

“Furthermore while Israel has already been locked out of the military technology pipeline for anything cutting edge, it still remains dependent on US military equipment for parts and supplies. The decades of US foreign aid have also served to create dependency. Unlike many other countries, including even Sweden, Israel does not have its own jet fighter. Israel's Air Force is heavily dependent on US weapons, parts and equipment. Cutting Israel off, would leave the Israeli military dangerously vulnerable in the case of a war. This is an effective chokehold that has been used before to prevent Israel from attacking Saddam Hussein during the Gulf War, as well as preventing Israel from carrying out a preemptive strike against its enemies before the Yom Kippur War.”

“…Israel has already been locked out of the military technology pipeline for anything cutting edge”? This is newsspeak taken to a new, low level. Just how many more horrific weapons of mass destruction can the US heap on poor ‘defenceless’ Israel? Okay, so this is the extreme edge of Zionist propaganda but it illustrates the mindset that drives imperial Zionism, a mindset that also drives the ‘mainstream’ propaganda, suitably ‘toned down’ of course, that we have been subjected to for decades, exploiting the racist sub-text that permeates our ‘culture’.

Moreover, the Zionist state is now so desperate that it is turning on its own internal detractors, small in number though they may be with arrests and imprisonment of Jewish journalists (as well as Palestinian human rights workers), who it seems are now the ‘un-Chosen’ people. (See for example, ‘About the Secret Empire that has decided to Criminalize Minority Dissent in Israel’, The Only Democracy?)

But perhaps the best (or worst) example of the desperate state of the ‘Jewish nation’ is the ‘Order regarding Prevention of Infiltration (Amendment No. 2) (No. 1650) ("Order 1650")’, a very thinly veiled ethnic cleansing of the West Bank with increasing numbers of Palestinians being deported to the largest concentration camp on the planet, the Gaza Strip.

“The order, effective April 13, 2010, defines anyone present in the West Bank as an "infiltrator", unless he or she is in possession of a permit from Israel, and subjects those without permits to deportation, transfer, criminal charges, fines, and/or imprisonment. It is part of a series of steps taken by Israel to remove Palestinians from the West Bank by declaring them to be illegally present in their own homes.” — Palestinian and Israeli Human Rights Groups Call for End to Israeli Military West Bank Deportation Policy’, Hamoked: Center for Defence of the Individual

And as Zionist state takes possibly its final nosedive into oblivion, we see why the rationale for making Iran the bad boy on the block, just as Saddam Hussein had been turned into the new Adolf Hitler. Ultimately, for the US (and conveniently for the Zionists), it’s the strategic role of Israel in the Middle East that’s really at stake here, just as it had been for Britain back when this disaster for the Palestinian people was created with the Balfour Declaration and beyond.

Back in the days of the Cold War, the UK was rightly described as a nuclear-armed US aircraft carrier anchored off the coast of mainland Europe. So too with Israel, situated as it is slap-bang in the middle of the route Eastwards, it controls access to the resources that make Western capitalism possible.

Operation Cast Lead was the first step in the ‘Final Solution’, the extermination of the Palestinian people, culture and state. History repeating itself not as farce but as tragedy, for both Palestinians and Jews and possibly all of humanity as the mad men in Tel Aviv, Washington DC, London, Bonn and Paris prattle on about a ‘two-state solution’ and Middle East ‘peace’ whilst they collectively bomb, poison, murder, imprison and dispossess thousands of Palestinians in what used to be their own land!

The hysterical demonization of Iran, Palestinians and Arabs in general (whilst ignoring for fifty years Israel’s possession of very real nuclear weapons) can only be viewed as some kind of obscene Red Herring foisted on the Western public, designed to refocus our very out-of-focus gaze from the real source of evil on the planet.
