ZIONISM UNMASKED: End of Zionism = Peace

Morality and conscience are of no concern to those who consider themselves The Chosen—by a god of their own choosing.

(TEMPE, Az.) - While Zionism is clearly a nationalist ideology, that narrow framing does the term an injustice as it is so much more.

Zionism is more accurately described as a strategy for targeting thought and emotion as a means to influence behavior. Naïve Jews were its first victims when induced to identify with an enclave in the Middle East that President Harry Truman, a Christian Zionist, was induced to recognize as a “state.”

Zionism is first and foremost a mental state that manifests as a dispersed form of internalized nationalism—a Diaspora—that binds to an extremist enclave those who may never set foot there. After 1967, this “state” became the “Land of Israel” based on a more expansive area seized by Israel Defense Forces along with other occupied lands that Zionists claim a god gave them.

Zionism recruits by sustaining a shared sense of insecurity within the broader Jewish community. It progresses by marketing its perceived vulnerability and victimhood among those on whom it relies for financial, military and diplomatic support.

When, as now, policies of the Zionist state come under attack, media campaigns herald an outbreak of anti-Semitism and hatred—not for Zionism but for Jews, enhancing recruitment.

By choosing to identify their interests with those of Zionism, Jews choose to make themselves feel insecure. Zionism relies for its success not only on deception but also on self-deceit.

Many well-informed Jews opposed Israel’s founding in 1948. By 1967, Jewish-Americans were active in the civil rights movement. With the Six-Day War, that activism became problematic. How could Jews back civil rights for Blacks while Zionism denied those rights to Palestinians?

That era marked a turning point both for Zionism and legitimate Judaism as many Jews abandoned civil rights activism when they could no longer reconcile their activism with Israeli oppression. Thus the present mental state of Barack Obama’s many Jewish Zionist advisers.

The Six-Day War induced more Jews to identify with Zionism as a defender of Jews. Yet now we know that war was a long-planned land grab destined to outrage Arabs and Muslims. When combined with a murderous occupation, decades of Israeli provocations were guaranteed to evoke the violent reactions required to rationalize a “war on terrorism.”

In terms of game theory war planning, today’s results were perfectly predictable—mathematically model-able within an acceptable range of probabilities. Once again Zionism targeted thought and emotion to manipulate behavior by provoking antagonism and evoking extremism—the two key ingredients required to plausibly proclaim their insecurity.

When your numbers are few and your ambitions vast, what choice did Zionists have but to seduce and deceive a super power so that our military would wage their wars for Greater Israel?

Peace is the Opponent

Peace is a perilous ‘state’ to be avoided at any cost by a nationalist ideology that thrives on serial crises wed to a perpetual state of conflict and fear. To realize the Zionist goal of hegemony over the Middle East requires a series of plausible Evil Doers and a persuasive narrative. Could Zionism be the reason we segued so seamlessly from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism? (see: How Israel Wages War on the U.S.-By Way of Deception - Jeff Gates Salem-News.com)

Instead of the anticipated post-Cold War “peace dividend, the U.S. finds itself waging what Nobel economist Joe Stiglitz calls The $3 Trillion War—all of it borrowed, including $700 billion in interest expense.

In hindsight, the phony intelligence that induced us to war in the Middle East was traceable to Israelis, pro-Israelis or assets developed for that purpose such as Iraqi liar Ahmad Chalabi.

Other than those sharing a Zionist mental state, who had the means, motive, opportunity and, importantly, the stable nation-state intelligence to conduct such operations inside the U.S.?

Yet even now those responsible elude accountability and even scrutiny as cries of “anti-Semitism” are deployed to intimidate and misdirect—by manipulating thought and emotion.

At the end of World War II, the U.S. claimed 50% of the world’s productive power, ensuring we would have the world’s top-rated government bonds for at least two generations. When the Cold War drew to a costly close in 1989, the U.S. had spent $15.9 trillion on defense since 1948 (in 2010 dollars). Now a potential war without end has taken its place.

Americans have been induced to believe that the Zionist state is an ally. We are not alone in viewing Israel as a legitimate nation and a noble experiment to provide a “homeland” for a victimized people. That alluring storyline victimized the broader Jewish community while also laying waste to the nation that was first deceived to extend to Zionists the hand of friendship.

To escape the ravages of Zionism requires that we concede its duplicitous nature and make its operations transparent so that its perpetrators become apparent. As a long-deceived global public grasps its costs in blood and treasure, this mental state will be seen for what it is: a criminal state.

The Psychopath Within

In the clinical psychiatric literature, this “state” features interpersonal traits such as superficial charm, pathological lying, egocentricity, lack of remorse, and callousness that are regarded as characteristic of psychopaths. In order to betray, psychopaths first befriend. In order to defraud, they first establish a relationship of trust. Sound familiar?

Those who share such a mental state will happily incite hatred to catalyze a reaction and then claim they are the victims of hate. For those inhabiting this mental state, it appears rational and even desirable to provoke a response and then claim to be a target of anti-Semites. Inside this internal state, self-absorption is all-encompassing with arrogance its most visible trait.

Law is irrelevant to those who consider themselves above the law. Morality and conscience are of no concern to those who consider themselves The Chosen—by a god of their own choosing. Such a nationalist ideology has no place in a system nation states dedicated to the rule of law.

Those sharing such a “state” pose too great a peril to be an object of pity or compassion. Accountability is the only appropriate response along with an initiative—deploying force as required—to secure any weapons of mass destruction that may be in their possession.

Such a state cannot be delegitimized because any legitimacy attained was integral to the fraud it inflicted on the community of nations. The issue at hand is how best to protect a peace-seeking world from a psychopathic ideology that assumed the appearance of legitimacy so that a Christian Zionist president could be deceived to recognize as a nation a criminal state.

Marshall, You are wrong when you say that Palestinians were not 'de-nationalized'. they HAD to leave. they were told that they could come back to their homes in 2 weeks...but those that came back found their houses taken over by the jews. they could not go home. and to say that the ones who didn't flee are full fledged israeli citizens is a gross misnomer. All Arab-Israeli's (as they are termed- notice they are not just Israeli's - they are Arab Israeli's) have a special marking on their passports that identifies them as Arab. So, that in and of itself is racism. Also, the Jews are trying to get rid of all the Arabs in Israel. The Arabs are not allowed to remodel their houses in Israel, so that the Israeli's then condemn the houses and say they are not safe to live in. Then they kick the Palestinians out, Jews move in and remodel. Also, Palestinians who leave Israel for a period of time very very often are told they have lost their citizenship! And to say that it was never a Palestinian nation is just denial in it's most ignorant sense. and you ask, why didn't the Jews leave? because of the Balfour Declaration. the real question to ask, is why did they go there of all places on earth in the first place? Come on! they go right smack dab in the middle of a land surrounded by Arabs!!! the whole was Arabs. That is either unmitigated audacity, just plain stupidity or something MUCH more sinister at work. Personally, I think it is all three. When one studies hegelian dialect (thesis-antithesis-synthesis) one can plainly see how Israel was created BY the halocaust. The creators of Israel were schooled in Hegelian dialectic. The Halocaust is continuing today on the Palestinians and it MUST stop. Period. As for Jerusalem, it should be an international city. Open to ALL.

Dr. William K Barth has the right attitude, but there is a point to clarify. It is this sentence - which is very flawed: "However, it was wrong to de-nationalize Palestinians, as well as destroy the Palestinian state in the process of establishing a Jewish homeland in Palestine." This is not true because Palestinians were not 'de-nationalized' when Israel was formed. Many fled and many did not. Those who did not flee were NATIONALIZED as full fledged Israeli citizens. Those who fled became refugees (who remain refugees and are denied citizenship in neighboring Arab countries). There are 2 theories to the cause of their flee. Here are the extremes: 1) Zionists say that the Arabs who fled did so with the calculated hope of leaving a Land 40% populated by Jews and returning after the war in 1948 with all of those Jews dead.... So as to claim the land as theirs entirely - which it never was. Bear in mind, Israel/Palestine was 40% Jewish and 60% Arab as the British Mandate of Palestine. It was never a Palestinian "nation." It was a land of dispersed communities, some Jewish, some Muslim. 2) The Palestinians claim to have fled for fear of war or by force. They speak of Jewish onslaughts on Palestinian communities and no alternative to evacuation. Regardless of the cause of why Palestinians left, take a second to think of why Jews did not leave... What is the difference? The difference is there are no neighboring countries where Jews could run. Egypt, Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon were safe havens for Palestinians. The Jews at that time had no where to run. To me this is obvious. The nearest non-muslim place is Europe, which in 1948 is the precise place Jews fled. Even the beautiful USA turned down many Jews. And to evacuate what one perceives as his home to relocate a nation of Jews to the USA was not a feasible or appropriate solution to prevent the war of Israel's independence in 1948. Finally, I must emphasize that the notion that there was a palestinian nation is simply untrue. People live in houseboats in the Atlantic, but there is not an Atlantic Ocean nation... Even this infantile analogy is more appropriate than the notion that Palestine existed as something more than a title for a geographic land. I don't discount the culture of the Palestinians, but the fact that they had any more of a nation than the Jews in 1948 is something that must be acknowledged to hold an educated discussion of this matter. Despite the Jews solid claims to Israel... we must speak of the present. Just as there is no sense in a discussion to give the USA back to native americans, there is no sense in discussing the relocation of 7 million Jews (80% of Israel's population) from their current home. Israel is now 60 years old, three generations of people have grown up here since independence - and many families for even longer, perhaps with lineage of THOUSANDS of years. The solution is acceptance and the guarantee of each group's survival and dignity. Jews must be able to achieve a feeling of security in a homeland. The dude who wrote the article above neglects this VERY REAL concern. And the Palestinians deserve their right to a future too. On issues such as Jerusalem - if it could be shared that would be fine with most Israelies... however, they don't think it could be shared because the last time Muslems controlled the city Jews were banned. So, instead, Israel believes 2 things: 1) they will more fairly control the city - no barring anyone for reasons of their religion (this holds true today) and 2) Israel has the empirical ownership of the land anyway. So, good luck to all people in this Jouney to accept one another and live lives of dignity... I'm not mentioning my religion or nationality because it doesn't matter... accept me and leave me in peace to do my thing and I will gladly do the same for you.


Dr William K Barth February 10, 2010 7:10 pm (Pacific time)

Jeff's analysis neglects thousands of years of unprecedented persecution targeting Jews who lived as a 'stateless' peoples since their expulsion from the so-called promised land, namely, the former Palestine and current Israel. He does not even mention the Nazi Holocaust which intended to murder the entire Jewish population of Europe. And though only 6,000,000 Jews were murdered by the Nazis instead of the entire European-Jewish population, this unprecedented international crime was enough to make Jews everywhere realize that they needed to realize statehood if they wanted to end their persecuted minority status, and did not want to become an extinct peoples. Ergo, most Jews supported Zionism, as well as the establishment of a Jewish state, Israel, in order to survive. However, it was wrong to de-nationalize Palestinians, as well as destroy the Palestinian state in the process of establishing a Jewish homeland in Palestine. The solution lies in realizing the legitimate aspirations of both peoples, Jews and Palestinians. Next, to create a state form that can accomodate the cultural existence and identity of both groups, either by partition, or the so called 2 state solution, or, a liberal, civic, bi-national solution. The exact solution that should be implemented is really a question for Israelis and Palestinians to decide for themselves, since, in the end, they are the two peoples who have to continue to live together, whatever mid-east solution is decided. Jeff is wrong to deny Isreal's right to exist because it is wrong to deny either group, Jewish-Israelis, or Islamic-Palestinians, their respective rights to cultural existence and identity in a political form that guarantee's both groups the right of self determination, and if they desire it, statehood.

thanks Mr. Gates and thanks Tim and Bonnie. In the face of the violence directed at the Palestinians we will never back down. Keep up the good work on this issue all of you.
