When I look at what Israel does, almost daily, and then exponentially, every few years, in Gaza, the West Bank, and what is left of Palestinian East Jerusalem, I am aghast! How does any country get away with such horrific and brazen shows of brutality in this age of enlightenment and electronic filing? Every image of Gaza comes to us within moments. Before we can take it in and react, multiple images, thoughts, and emotions follow. And Israelis seem to be not effected by these images and photos. One question: How is that? What kind of special power does Tel Aviv hold? Or, is it a sort of mental defect and/or disease within her people..?
Sure, Israelis and dual-citizens holding allegience for and with israel are embedded in our American government, and this is no small problem. They perpetrated many crimes to get there, in US Congress and White-house. The connivance which had to have occurred behind the scenes to master such a fete is/was despicable.. But, the American federal government is not our people and is hardly reflective of us. D.C.; little-israel, does not speak or act for US. We, as a nation of mostly caring individuals, are not as easily manipulated as our government, or are we? Aren’t we too smart to watch the MSM, which always and ever precedes the name, “Hamas”, with code-word, “terrorist-organisation”? Haven’t we all gotten past the overused notion that, “Israel has a right to defend itself.”? We know this is a fallacy and that Israel has never defended itself against Hamas or the PLO and even the Palestinian Authority; though in the case of PA, the only offensive move they have made is…? I mean, hmm; does the PA ever do or say anything that any Israeli might ever find remotely offensive? I suppose, if one concedes that by virtue of the fact that they have continued to exist (and maintain some sort of, “power”, even after voted-out by Palestinians(!!)) might be offensive to Bibi and the rest of the Israeli nutty-yahoos, one can state that Israel has the right to defend itself against the PA.., but that would really be stretching it.
Yet, there is something else. There is a strange power at play in Israel and, of course, in all of the West. What is it? Of course, there are constant harassment by the regular hasbara teams, as they are everywhere. Sometimes, you find a lone hasbara-cel (like on RT’s CrossTalk or, The Debate, on PressTV), but they are generally accompanied by other hasbarats such as one invariably encounters in youtube. And rather than lessening in strength, in consideration of how much truth is available these days, the hasbarats are coming out of our ears! Yes, they are everywhere! Go watch any video that mentions Israel, even in passing.., or that mentions Gaza or Palestine (at all), and check out the comment-thread, and you find the filthy liars for the lunatic-state there. It is as if they know when people are watching these videos and, the moment a thumb-up is made or one positive word regarding Palestine/Palestinians written, they are there to pounce, slander, distract from the subject, and out-right avoid the subject. The youtube-hasbarats are the ugliest form of liar in that entirety of internet! Nobody says, “poor children of Gaza”, without going through a verbal beat-down. Does this tactic work to change minds? No, but.., does it matter? That sort of hasbara agent is there to wear US down and to prevent teaching anyone anything but a lesson; don’t talk about Jews, or Israel, or Gaza, or Palestine, or Palestinians, and don’t you even think it! A decent person must either develop a very hard exterior, or selective reading skills, or both, in order to ignore the yt-hate-style hasbarat. Youtube officials, google plussers, and most other site-admins of internet byways have pretty much left this part of the online experience, like a Wild-West show in which we are the entertainment. The only way to avoid it is: Ignore the words while removing them and blocking the hasbarats. This is the only way to keep ones sanity and get anything done, online! No, they are not the only form of hasbarat, but they are the most vile.
Why do these hasbarats and paid israeli-trolls continue getting away with this? There are a few reasons. In many cases, this is their JOB! This is how some hasbarats and erstwhile online freaks put a roof over their heads and McDonalds’ in their ever-expanding bellies. It is how they cover that next pack of Camel-no-filters, and the latest emailed packet of porn. They are not nice people and each and every one is paid to be more filthy than the last. Many times, they do not even speak to the, “virtues”, of the lunatic-state as they don’t have to! The point is not promotion of Israel. The point is to take you down, one way or another. This type hasbaranimal slanders all decent people. Again; it is their job. They make up stories about whomever the target is, not a care given to the veracity of such stories, and if they find out anything *real* about decent folk, at all, they play with that truth, turning it into the most vile filth, which they post and spread far and wide. This sort are best avoided. They truly do not care a whit about Israel and they care less about you. Their cause, then, is not the Jews. Their cause is ensuring nobody has a positive thought about Palestine. Their cause is a filthy cause, but it is not as all-encompassing as the hollow-cause (holocaust.)
What can we say about the holocaust?
No; really.., what CAN we say about the holocaust?
If we don’t wish to be put through the ringer of hate, set onto and run up and down the well-worn and meandering road of the, “anti-Semite”, there is little we are able to say on the subject. We cannot say, “holocaust”, unless we want to pay for it. Yes, it is as if there is a hollow-cause TAX (and there ought to be, charged to those who envoke it for pleasure or to one-up his opponent.) For, the holocaust has been overdramatized, lied about, pretended, over-used, and abused to DEATH. The claims run from silly to disgusting, but most made no sense in the beginning, and are easily disproven. Due to its overuse, I generally refuse to call it, “holocaust”, opting for my more correct, “hollow-cause”. Some people don’t like that I have changed it. Some find it silly. But, considering I am usually dealing with the emotional equivolent of fourth-grader, when fending off barbs of the hollow-cause, I find that my word play makes more sense. And, if I can offend a hasbarat (as one cannot hope to make them think), my mood is already better.
After all of the years of study, questioning, and pointing and laughing at the most inane claims of the hollow-cause, why does any person even go along with, “gassings”, or, “human-skin lampshades”, “shrunken-jew-heads”, and, “six-million dead”? How can any thinking adult human not understand the complete stupidity all of it is?
To me, most of the stories from the hollow-cause had to have originated as old-wives tales, or cautionary tales that one would weave in order to warn children.. The tales remind me of stories my elder siblings would use on us younger kids, like that about the haunted witch-house, used to warn kids away from a woman who, as it turned out, was a bit of a mental-case and possibly or probably dangerous.
Imagine the setting; Germany 1941, whatever-camp. A woman is burdened with children who won’t behave. She points to the delousing rooms and threatens the kid(s): ” See how they kill bugs there? That poison will kill you, too. If you’re not good, I’ll have the guard put you in with the sheets…”, and it really is that simple.
Similar tales can be made up, and most likely were created of an already creepy place, the crematorium. What kid (including those outside of Germany) has not held negative and fearful ideas of the funeral pyre? Imagine the threats posed to children to keep them in line, and there you have it; half (or more) of the hollow-cause stories explained!
There should be a big difference to the typical, thinking adult; we don’t continue believing impossible fantasy stories once we mature! So why do otherwise mostly-intelligent people close off their ears and minds to the TRUTHS about the asinine and ridiculous tales of the hollow-cause”? It just makes no sense! But people cannot help themselves. What is it that causes this abject refusal to comprehend the truth? Cognitive dissonance(?); sure. Even those who know there are problems with the stories cannot get over the tales of the poor put-upon Jew. They cannot get over the last hurdle. I find these people disappointing. I do not get them. And, anymore, I simply do not care enough to try and get them or it.
I’ll leave the reader with one thought: If there was a holocaust of six-million people, why were and are there so many survivors? Why would Hitler not simply kill them all?
Please; for the sake of this planet: Just think!
