“Why do you continue to kill people?”

The question of my headline was asked by an exasperated and quietly angry Ban Ki Moon, Secretary General of the UN during his diplomatic effort in the Middle East. Because Israel is doing virtually all of the killing I think it is more than reasonable to assume that the SG’s rhetorical question was addressed primarily to Israel’s leaders. The answer to it can be very simply stated.

Because it is committed to retaining the maximum amount of Palestinian land with the minimum number of Palestinians on it and therefore has no interest in peace on terms the Palestinians could accept, Zionism knows no other way of behaving. Killing Palestinians comes as naturally to it as pissing when the bladder is full.

Another part of the whole terrible truth as noted by Gideon Levy is that most of the brainwashed Jewish public in Israel is not remotely concerned by the death and destruction its war machine is inflicting on the Palestinian inhabitants of the Gaza Strip prison camp. One of Gideon’s most recent articles for Ha’aretz included the following revealing and chilling paragraph.


The website “Walla!” published talkback comments on an article about the four children killed on the Gaza beach. Shani Moyal: “I couldn’t care less that Arab children were killed, too bad it wasn’t more. Well done to the IDF.” Stav Sabah: “Really, these are great pictures. They make me so happy, I want to look at them again and again.” Sharon Avishi: “Only four? Too bad. We hoped for more.” Daniela Turgeman: “Great. We need to kill all the children.” Chaya Hatnovich: “There isn’t a more beautiful picture than those of dead Arab children.” Orna Peretz: “Why only four?” Rachel Cohen: “I’m not for children dying in Gaza. I’m for everyone burning.” Tami Mashan: “As many children as possible should die.”


If that’s not proof of how much many Israeli Jews have been dehumanized by occupation and the propaganda of their leaders I don’t know what is.

According to a report in the Times of Israel, Yasser Abbas, the son of President Abbas, has said that “Israel is behaving like the Nazis and the IDF is a Nazi army.”

One of my very dear Jewish friends has been of that opinion for some time. Who? The anti-Zionist Dr. Hajo Meyer, the author of The End of Judaism: An Ethical Tradition Betrayed (by Zionism). He writes and speaks from the experience of having survived the Nazi holocaust in Auschwitz.

If the situation today was not so tragic the efforts of U.S. Secretary of State Kerry and his European counterparts to bring about a ceasefire would be hysterically funny. They know what they should do – draft a binding UN Security Council resolution demanding an immediate end to the fighting and stating that rejection of the resolution would be punished with sanctions.

But they also know that in line with America’s policy of preventing the Zionist state from being called and held to account for its crimes, President Obama would order such a resolution to be vetoed.

In my opinion there is one thing Kerry could do to shake up and possibly change the dynamics of what is happening. He could resign and say in his resignation statement that it was impossible to pursue a foreign policy that served the best interests of all concerned, American interests especially, because of the stranglehold the Zionist lobby and its mad, so-called Christian fundamentalist allies have on Congress.

I think it is not impossible that such a thought has crossed Kerry’s mind but, of course, he won’t resign.

From the incredibly self-righteous statements made by Israeli Ambassador Ron Prosor after the Security Council’s pathetic call for an immediate and unconditional humanitarian ceasefire we know what Israel really wants. Prosor said Israel was “tired of the vilification of the only democracy in the Middle East” and that it was really very simple. “If there’s quiet in Israel there will be quiet in Gaza,” he added. In other words, Israel wants a “quiet” occupation. No resistance from the occupied and oppressed Palestinians. They must surrender, peacefully, to Zionism’s will. And if they don’t they will be killed.


When those who defend Israel’s actions with the statement that “We withdrew from Gaza years ago and look what happened”, the best response is, I think, something like the following. “Cut the bullshit. The siege of the Gaza Strip is occupation by remote control.”

    The state that has TAUGHT its children to hate as those communications indicate is beyond repair. That state must be brought low just like the Nazis were driven down.

    Palestinian don’t have to be taught to hate, as they are witnesses to the death all around them and know who is responsible.

    It has always bothered me that, in victory, the Zionists continue to “hate” Palestinians and chant “Death to Arabs”. In victory, they might have been magnanimous, perhaps offering reparations etc. Instead, they are more virulent than ever. Why should they “hate” Palestinians so? What have the Palestinians done to them that might have fueled such hate? Pal jets do not spew phosphorus on Israeli cities and Pal bulldozers do not level Jewish homes. Why the hate?

    Israelis are enclosed in a myth, a self-defeating fantasy of, simultaneously, complete destruction and complete supremacy. This is the neurosis of these uncharming unattractive people. If the Israeli is the natural result of Jewish self-determination, that result is something akin to an SS stereotype. Good going.

    And then there’s the sociopathology of blaming the victim. Meir (Myerson) said that she hated the Pals for forcing her to kill their children. This is a line from a sociopath explaining murder. Yeah, Pals made her do it. And Yahoo repeats the same line that THEY are different from US and THEY do inhuman things. This is bald-faced RACISM. One can imagine Julius Streicher lecturing thus: THEY are dirty and criminals and WE are good and moral. Why does the media not censure these remarks as pathological and racist? ISRAEL IS EVERYTHING IT COMPLAINS ABOUT AND SAYS IT IS NOT. Palestinians don’t want to kill all Jews, but Israel wants to kill all Palestinians and is doing it! Israel says the world is racist but it is Israel that is racist. Israel complains about nuclear armed states but it is the only completely unfettered nuclear state in the region. They say they worry about Israel being wiped out but they are the ones wiping out all the others. They remember camps and hard times but they create camps and try to reduce Palestinian life to nothing. They remember the Warsaw Ghetto but create Gaza. A nation of hypocrites, liars and psychopaths.

  5. confoundmeonce:

    Alan, I Do believe you HAD It Exactly Right..With your Last Observation ‘ the siege of Gaza Strip is Occupation that can only be managed by remote control. ‘ Sad that These usurpers Don`t know how to ”cut the Bullshit” They invented IT.

  6. pete:

    That picture of a young father sobbing over the body of his young child will stay with me forever. It is truly heart breaking. God bless that young man and all of the Palestinians.

    Why do they continue to kill? Why do lions continue to kill? Why do wolves continue to kill? Etc. BECAUSE they are predators and can’t do otherwise (unless you keep them in cages.) The bulk of humanity is going to regret tolerating this Israeli lawlessness all these years. It will lead to billions of deaths in the not-too-distant future. Thomas Aquinas said that anyone who tolerates injustice is himself immoral. The Bible says the wages of sin is death. Israel has no borders because, in the mind of the Israeli fanatics, the whole world belongs to them. Take Ukraine, for instance. Israel has no constitution because it acts with impunity and makes laws to suit the needs of the moment. They have no respect for international law–overtly want to do away with it and replace it with the smirking face of the IDF and JDL bully boys. Charles Krauthammer called the 1990s a transition period from international law to “the suasion of the bayonet”. And this decadence, this barbarism has rotted America and Western Europe to its very core. God help us.

    @Tom — couldn’t agree more. The world will deeply regret giving Israel a pass all these decades, allowing them to expunge another people, like dust.

    “The American people could free their media, culture, finance and politics from that corrosive and repressive ideology that has dominated America for so long. Its influence on American foreign interests and diplomacy has ruined its value system and moral ethos and its effects on finance have left much of the country impoverished.” (G.Atzmon)

  10. Ronald Douglas Kennedy:

    The majority of American’s looked the other way, after they deliberately killed American’s aboard the American navel ship. http://www.ussliberty.com

    now there deliberately killing civilians and there children. Paid for by the American political controllers of the USA. Who just voted a guaranted thirty billion dollar’s , to our kosher body butcher’s.

  11. Mike:

    “We withdrew from Gaza years ago and look what happened”
    Yes! look what happened. It seems very likely that the withdrawal from Gaza was to enable them to be free to ethnically cleanse Palestinians.

    I wonder if the Zionists, in all their arrogance and insufferable self righteousness, realise that every time they commit these atrocities, they ultimately are the losers. Palestinians are a very brave people.


    THANK YOU Mr HART FOR YOUR STATEMENT. I can’t help crying when i read your words..

  13. Auxilia:

    i like this guy he seems sincere to the patlseinian hardship. . .and i would be totally be on israel’s side except Israel and its people seem to overlook the fact that they are occupying Palestine. . .I mean isnt it only natural for the people of the land to fight back their transgressors. . . Think of any occupied territory throughout the ages of time. . .the british in india, the nazis in europe. . . .etc I mean how can israel expect there not to be a conflict if they wont leave?
