Lebanon, Ultrazionism & Zionazism
ISRAEL, like Germany, surely has a right to exist but only within its Internationally allotted and agreed borders. Germany has been pegged back from its furthest Lebensraum territorial expansion - from the Channel Islands to the Volga River just prior to defeat of the Nazi German war machine at Stalingrad (present-day Volgograd) by the Russian Red Army in February 1943. Germany now exists between the North Sea and the River Rhine in the West and the Oder and Neisse Rivers in the East. Similarly, Israel must be forced by the United Nations to return within the 1967 borders and cease its occupation and violation of the Occupied Palestine Territory and swathes of Lebanon and Syria.
In 1945 Germans asserted that they did not know what had been going on – but this excuse carries no weight for Israelis today, because even egregious lying by racist Mainstream media can merely minimize and obfuscate the decades of sustained carnage in the West Bank and Lebanon by the Israeli Wehrmacht. In 1945 the Germans ceased killing others in foreign lands (although they have resumed in the 21st century in Afghanistan as part of the Israel-fomented US-led War on Terror). Today Israel is currently destroying both Palestine and Lebanon in a penultimate act of a 70 year process of ethnic cleansing.
It is feared that the current US- and Coalition-backed Israeli destruction of Lebanon and the Occupied Palestine Territory is a prelude to devastation of Syria and Iran and the creation of a violently US- and Israeli-occupied Empire from the Mediterranean to Pakistan, almost from the Nile to the Indus. How has this horrendous Nazi-style racist perversion – Zionazism - come about with the active support of the major First World democracies?
Zionism arose in the 19th century as a secular Jewish movement to realize the Jewish Diaspora dream of “next year in Jerusalem”. However it immediately came into conflict with religious Judaism which regarded Zionism and establishment of a State of Israel prior to the arrival of the Messiah as heresy and blasphemy. Indeed properly Orthodox Jews today totally reject the legitimacy of Israel from the perspective of the Torah, the core of Jewish religious belief
According to "Jews Not Zionists": "Zionism is wrong from the Torah viewpoint, not because many of its adherents are lax in practice or even anti-religious, but because its fundamental principle conflicts with the Torah. Unfortunately, due to many undesirable factors, the view of Torah-true Jewry has been concealed from the general public."
Consider the following statement from the Satmar Rav Grand Rabbi Joel Teitelbaum concerning the so called "Yom Ha'Atzmau't" (Zionist "Israel Independence Day"): "We must not minimize the seriousness of the grave sin of rejoicing or appearing to rejoice and making a festival on the terrible Day of Blasphemy that they call "Yom Ha'Atzmau't. The day that the members of the conspiracy against G-d and his Messiah, established their Kingdom of Atheism over the Jewish People, by uprooting the Holy Torah and the Faith, at that time the shedding of blood of myriads upon myriads of Jews began." (see: here ).
In World War 1 the Arabs were detached from the Ottoman Empire with the defeat of Turkish armies by the Western Allies, Russia and Iran – with the help of Arab forces advised by Lawrence of Arabia. However the Arabs were betrayed by the secret Anglo-French Sykes-Picot Agreement of 1916 which resulted in a post-war split-up of the Arab world into zones of British and French hegemony. The Arabs had fought a futile battle and exchanged membership of a Muslim Turkish Empire to subjugation by Islamophobic Western Europeans. However this was just the beginning – the final end may be approaching in the Middle East today.
The second betrayal of its Arab allies was the Balfour Declaration of November 2, 1917 that announced that the British Government supported “the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people ... it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine”:

“Foreign Office. November 2nd 1917.
Dear Lord Rothschild,
I have much pleasure in conveying to you on behalf of His Majesty’s Government, the following declaration of sympathy with Zionist aspirations which have been submitted to, and approved by, the Cabinet
“His Majesty’s Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing should be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.” I should be grateful if you would bring this declaration to the knowledge of the Zionist Federation. Yours, Balfour.”
Jewish immigration to Palestine was thus green-lighted and the British Mandate of Palestine became the last major British colonial imposition. The following comment by Winston Churchill (February 8th, 1920) was truly prophetic (with British warships presently in Beirut and British armies in Iraq and Afghanistan) : “ If, as well may happen, there should be created in our lifetime, by the banks of the Jordan, a Jewish State, under the protection of the British Crown, which might comprise three or four millions of Jews, an event will have occurred in the history of the world, which should be especially in harmony with the truest interest of the British Empire” (see: Max Gordon, “Sir Isaac Isaacs”, Heinemann, London, 1963, p197).
As Indigenous Arabs resisted Jewish invasion in the 1930s, the British position became ambivalent and there was a conflict between the extremes of pro-Jewish Islamophobics such as Winston Churchill and the British Empire Strategists concerned about alienating Muslims in the Middle East and India and thus endangering the British Empire. In 1939 the Strategists won and a White Paper was issued severely constraining Jewish entry to Palestine. As Nazi anti-Semitism ratcheted up, it was very difficult for Jewish refugees to find haven, and particularly so because of both the British White Paper and the Zionist primary objective of “Judaizing” Palestine. Thus Sir Isaac Isaacs (one of the most eminent Jewish Australians and former Governor-General of Australia) supported the British 1939 White Paper banning excessive Jewish immigration to Palestine on the basis of preserving the Rights of the Indigenous inhabitants (as set out explicitly in the Balfour Declaration) (see: Max Gordon’s book: “Sir Isaac Isaacs”).
Undoubtedly many Jews died because Zionists of the time were primarily obsessed with "Hebraizing" Palestine rather than finding haven for Jewish refugees (see Walter Laqueur, "The Terrible Secret. Suppression of the truth about Hitler's "Final Solution", Penguin, London, 1980 and B. Wasserstein "Britain and the Jews of Europe", Oxford University Press, 1988). Jewish terrorism was directed at both Arabs and the British. The Independencce of Israel in 1948 was associated with horrendous Ultrazionist terrorist ethnic cleansing, 0.7 million Arabs fleeing for their lives. There are now about 6 million Palestinian refugees in the Middle East
The world said an emphatic "no" to Racism and Colonial occupation 50 years ago but Israel defied the trend. In 1956 it colluded with the Anglo-French invasion of Egypt; in 1967 Israel occupied huge slabs of territory of its neighbours Egypt, Syria and Jordan and became a nuclear power. According to some accounts, the Israeli attack on the USS Liberty in 1967 almost brought about the nuclear annihilation of Egypt (see: here ). After the US-brokered peace with Egypt in 1979, Israel surrendered the Sinai but subsequently invaded Lebanon. Israel wrecked Lebanon, permitted horrendous massacres of Palestinians in Beirut and did not leave until 2000.
The post-invasion avoidable mortality (excess deaths, avoidable deaths) in the Occupied Palestinian Territory totals 300,000 and the post-invasion under-5 infant deaths total 186,000 (see MWC News ). In the last 38 years of illegal, war criminal, abusive and traumatizing Occupation, Israeli Zionism made the transition to politically dominant racist Ultrazionism obsessed with slow genocide of the Palestinians – a slow motion Palestinian Genocide. The obscene, racist, Lebensraum-obsessed Ultrazionist primitivism hearks back to Adolph Hitler in his Obersalzberg speech: "Only thus shall we gain the living space [Lebensraum] which we need. Who after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?"
The justification for Israel’s 4 decade horrendous imprisonment, killing and traumatizing of Palestinians has been “terror” – but this is revealed as an immense lie. Thus the “annual Israeli homicide rate” is commensurate with that in metropolitan United States and Israelis are responsible for over 80% of the annual homicides in the Israel-occupied Holy Land (see MWC News ). Ultrazionist “terror hysteria” propaganda reached a new pitch after 9/11 and a combination of neocons, lying Mainstream media, the Israel Lobby and Ultrazionist fanaticism fomented Bush’s Islamophobic “War on Terror (in reality a War on Muslim Women and Children). Yet (just as in the Israeli invasion of Gaza and Lebanon with presently some 600 Arab deaths to 30 Israeli), the US-led Western attack on Muslim lands has been horrendously disproportionate.
The number of Western civilians murdered by Muslim-origin non-state terrorists over the last 40 years totals 7,000 (assuming no US or Israeli complicity in the 9/11 atrocity). However the post-invasion avoidable mortality in the Occupied Palestinian, Iraqi and Afghan Territories now totals 0.3, 0.5 and 2.0 million, respectively – 60% of this being under-5 year old infants and this carnage substantially due to Israeli and Coalition non-provision of the life-sustaining requisites unequivocally demanded of Occupiers by the Geneva Convention.
The War on Terror is an immense lie and is reality a War on Muslim Women and Children. Lying by racist Western media tantamount to holocaust denial has enabled the Israeli Palestinian Genocide and horrendous passive genocide by the US-led Coalition and NATO Alliance in the Occupied Iraqi and Afghan Territories.
As of July 2006, the post-1967 under-5 infant mortality in the Occupied Palestinian Territory totals 186,000. Prior to the recent Israeli escalation, seven (7) Palestinian Children were dying avoidably every day. While hundreds of civilians have died in Gaza and about 300 in Lebanon (so far), tens of thousands will die because of the horrendous damage to the economy and infrastructure required to sustain life.
The US has vetoed UN attempts to stop the killing. Indeed the US, the UK, and allied Coalition or NATO countries such as Canada and Australia have permitted half a century of genocidal Israeli abuses against Arab people. The horrendous Israeli bombing and shelling of Lebanon has so far killed about 300 and made 0.5 million homeless. However the Israel Lobby has been extraordinarily effective in the West. Thus 25,000 Americans, 25,000 Australians and 40,000 Canadians are cowering under war criminal Israeli shelling and bombing in Lebanon. 8 Canadians have already been killed by Israel state terrorism. Many Australians are missing. Yet the American, Australian and Canadian Governments support Israeli violence that endangers their OWN citizens.
Americans, Australians and Canadians are obliged to support and protect their own citizens from terrorism, whether this be non-state terrorism or state terrorism as exhibited by Israel – they are obliged to condemn their Governments and indeed all those supporting the war criminal shelling and bombing of their fellow citizens. Those who support the state terrorist bombing of their own citizen are traitors and terrorist sympathizers
50% of the civilians being bombed and shelled by Israel state terrorism in Gaza and Lebanon are Children and 75% are Women and Children. Those who deny, ignore, obfuscate, minimize, excuse, support, advocate, effect or are complicit in gross abuse of Children and Women - or indeed of anyone - have crossed the line between decent humanity and barbarity. The Israelis and the Israel Lobby can no longer hide behind deserved sympathy for Jews over the Jewish Holocaust when Israel is itself committing genocide. Zionism transmuted to Ultrazionism and has now become Zionazism with the remorseless ongoing destruction of Lebanon and Palestine.
