Israel’s Success

How Israel can succeed.

If you are Jewish you are certainly interested in Israel‘s success, and not just for today, but for a long, long time, perhaps eternity.

How can you attain this?

Well the best way to cement Israel’s demise is for Israel to behave as it does today. Which is poorly.

Your success in life is directly dependent upon how you treat other people.

There is no substitute for it.

Likewise, no technology, device or stratagem can protect you from your own malfeasance.

If Israel persists in treating the Palestinians like shit, shit will happen to Israel. There’s no escaping it.

What goes around comes around.

Now, of course that will not happen today or tomorrow. Israel is too strong.

The people who run Israel today are committed, to put it mildly.

But what about the next generation and the generation after that.

History has shown and demonstrated that succeeding generations are often less committed than the generations that preceded them.

People forget.

People also do not appreciate that which they are given for free.

It is a certainty that future generations of Israelis will be less committed and less wary than the Israelis who rule today.

What will not be forgotten are the misdeeds and measures of humiliation that Israelis commit against Palestinians. These will be handed down father to son, mother to daughter for thousands of years. They will be woven into the culture of the Palestinian people. They will never forget.

They will have all the time in the world to avenge their ancestors.

In time, this will prove to be Israel’s demise.

It’s a mathematical certainty.

To avoid this, Israel must mend its ways.

And the sooner the better.

Now, of course, hardliners in Israel and members of the Likud Party will dismiss this advice.

How do you convince people who are convinced otherwise?

With patience.

The temptation is to kick them in the nuts, but that won’t work especially since they can kick harder.

What will work is a soft patient approach.

A Good Leader

A good leader is a good listener.

A good leader is never afraid to hear a contrary opinion.

Unfortunately in the world we live in today, we have many bad leaders and people in charge.

Our leaders are afraid of contrary opinions.

They are afraid that what they want to implement will be negated by the contrary viewpoint.

This is the sign of a weak individual.

This is the sign of a weak leader.

This was in evidence today as CNN tossed Mark Lamont Hill off the air because he voiced support for Palestine.

The people in charge at CNN, who work in league with our leaders who are Zionists, could not  handle a contrary opinion, so they threw him off the air.

It’s akin to an ostrich burying its head in the sand.

The contrary opinions will not go away because you do not air them. The contrary opinions will still exist.  They will merely go underground. Indeed they will go underground and work to subvert your plan.

A good leader takes account of a contrary opinion and says to himself, “Hey, maybe I am wrong. Maybe I got this wrong. Maybe I should consider changing or modifying my viewpoint.”

Sadly, this will not be forthcoming from our leaders. And there is a good reason why.

A Palestinian state gets in the way of their money making machine, or so they think.

But maybe it doesn’t. Maybe having a viable Palestinian state will ensure peace in the region which will be better for the powers that be in the long run.

Unfortunately for us, our leaders ignore our opinions.  They consider themselves far above us intellectually.

That makes them bad leaders.

And you know what happens to bad leaders?

In time, they get strung up like Mussolini.

No matter what the government is, if the leaders of the government do not address the needs of the people, in time that leader ship will be deposed.

What is Antisemitism?

What does it mean to be antisemitic.  There are various definitions, and there is some controversy afoot these days as to what constitutes antisemitism.

Let’s leave criticism of Israel out of the discussion for now.  This is a bogus addition that has no merit.

One popular definition says that you are antisemitic if you do harm to Jews because they are Jews.

This seems fair at first glance, but is this inclusive enough?

What about those who do harm directly to Jews without intending to do harm?   Is that antisemitic?

I would argue that it is.

What about those who do harm to Jews indirectly by creating or encouraging a climate of hatred toward Jews without intending to specifically harm Jews (judging by their own words)?

This would include people like those Nazis who claim they never gave an order to harm Jews.  Yes, one could argue, but you fostered or encouraged a climate that led to violence against Jews.

This would also include Adolf Hilter for those people who say, “The Fuhrer did not know,” or “The Fuhrer did not intend for things to turn out this way.”

Irrelevant.

So, antisemitism, accepting what I say, is more broad than doing harm to Jews because they are Jews. That definition is more appropriate in defining volitional discrimination.

Antisemitism is when you do harm to Jews.

But wait a minute.  Isn’t Israel Jewish?  So isn’t harm to Israel then antisemitic?

Good point.

First, Israel is only Jewish when it wants to be.  When it wants to promote itself as a multicultural society it proudly points to Arab MKs.  

Second, Israel currently abides by the precepts of Judaism to the same degree that the US abides by the precepts of Christianity which is to say dead zero.

Third, is a nation, a corporate entity of sorts, a person? 

No.

To say more is to say less. 

Given what I have spoken to thus far, is Israel’s current leadership antisemitic?

Yes, and they have been for some time.

The Likud Party and their radical fellow travelers have created a culture of hatred against Palestinians that has engendered horrible living conditions for the inhabitants of Gaza and the West Bank.

This dire situation has resulted in the BDS movement and enmity toward Jews around the world.

It does not matter whether Bibi intended for things to turn out this way.

It has.

And now you know what Israel must do in the Middle East.  It’s as clear as daylight.

Israeli Bluster

So the latest Israeli blowhard to enter the arena, Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan, states that Israel is closer than ever to entering Gaza to attain security for Israel’s citizens.

Tough talk.

Let’s see how tough he talks in a few months after Israel decides to undertake this mission.

Will Israel win?  Well, it depends upon how you define win.

One thing is for sure, Hamas and the Palestinians have nothing to lose.

Given the horrid conditions they are living under, given Israel’s determination to take the West Bank, given growing world support for Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, it should be clear to the Palestinians that they have little to fight for save honor.

They’re certainly not fighting for Lady Gaga to give a performance.  No, luxuries are not at the top of their list.

I would say they are fixing their bayonets right now.

Israel should be prepared for that.

The problem that Israel faces is not its own means or determination but its overconfidence.

Their young anonymous soldiers have been fed a steady diet of lies about Palestinians for fifty years now.

Israelis have come to accept Palestinians as subhuman cockroaches who celebrate a culture of death.

I don’t think that’s true.  I think Palestinians very much love their children and neighbors. And like Jews they want to be part of the future world.

Any people under siege and outgunned will resort to suicide bombers.  The Japanese did, the Vietnamese did, the Palestinians did.

And what do you know? The very first suicide bombers were the Jewish Zealots who conducted knifings against Roman soldiers in the first century.

Knifings, huh?

So the Jews wrote the book.

The Palestinians are the students.

They learned from their teachers and engaged in suicide bombings.

They’ll do it again

They have nothing to lose.

They’ll do what they have to do.

And more. Humanity is inventive, and necessity is the mother of invention.

Missiles once directed at cities will be more efficiently directed at patrols.

It’s a closer shot with a greater chance of success

Is Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan ready for this?

Is he ready for house to house combat?

I suppose that with proper planning and careful attention to detail it is possible that Israel can achieve a sweeping victory over Hamas with a minimum of bloodshed.

One of Israel’s assumptions may be poor:   That Hamas and Hamas alone is responsible for the instability in Gaza.

In other words, get rid of Hamas and the problem goes away.  This seems to be the same logic that the US bought into during Vietnam:  Get rid of the Viet Cong and the Vietnamese will be peaceful.

Well, the Vietnamese people were the Viet Cong.

In Gaza, I suspect, the Palestinians are Hamas.

Israel, prefers to believe its own bullshit.  They prefer to believe the lies they’ve been promoting through the Western media about Hamas surrounding themselves with unwilling human shields inside nursery schools.

It fits their narrative.

Israel also prefers to believe in their own superiority and the unassailability of the IDF.  This confidence is bolstered by their rabbis infusing them with the nonsense that they are God’s chosen people and that God gave them Israel.

Well, 1) God picks no favorites, 2) God doesn’t give any land to anyone, and 3) God distributes intelligence evenly throughout the spectrum of humanity.  You’re here after millions of years of evolution; if you were that genetically inferior, you and your people wouldn’t be here.

Still Israel believes its own bullshit.  It points to its Nobel Prize winners as proof of Jewish superiority never once asking itself whether other religions emphasize awards and accomplishments let alone Nobel Prizes.

Suppose other cultures emphasize a renunciation of wealth, possessions and awards.  What then?

Hey, here’s a thought: Shouldn’t a master race consider such and temper its arrogance.

And if it does not?

Well, wars aren’t fought on paper  or in the minds of the self-deluded as Israel is about to find out.

Yes, they can kill many Palestinians and “win”.

But at what cost to themselves and the future Israel?

It’s important to ask questions.  The more high quality questions you ask, the better the result generally is.

Does God see everything?   Does God see what hardships Israel has inflicted upon the Palestinians in Gaza?  Do we live in a moral universe?

These are but a few questions the Israeli blowhard, Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan, might ask first.

Intelligent people ask questions.

Phonies, Paint and Sportsmanship


Lately there is talk of Bibi of Likud, President for Life, 
 rushing to the peace table because he fears a three front war against Gaza to the South, Syria to the East and Lebanon to the North.

This seems not credible.

With vast superiority of weaponry, Israel should fear no one.  The US will not permit Israel to lose.

Jews in Israel may have qualms about genocide, but I can assure you that our de-Christianized maniacs in charge in America have no such reservations. They’ll insist upon it, then tell Anderson Vanderbilt and Sheer Insanity (both puppets and beneficiaries of the New World Order) not to talk about it.

As it is the citizens in the US have barely a clue what is going on in Gaza.

If Hamas exists it is because Israel (and the US) desires it.

Despite the rhetoric from Hamas, Israel can finish off Hamas in a few days anytime it wants.

And it will if need be.

The recent peace initiative is bogus.

Israel’s leadership does not want peace and neither does Hamas.

They are both warriors and terrorists at heart.  War is what they were born to conduct.

For them it’s either total victory or being brought home on your shield.

Bibi wants all Palestinians removed from Gaza. 

He clearly stated a few years ago that he would not permit a Palestinian state west of the Jordan River.  His actions to date indicate his desire remains the same.

Hamas wants Israel eliminated.

Short of that they both desire the spoils that war brings them.  And generals always get the perks.

The losers are the people stuck between the gladiators.t

But it need not be this way.

When leaders can not make peace the people must.

There is no other way.

Someone brave must end this standoff between the Hatfields and McCoys.

A simple meeting of musicians or sportsmen usually breaks the ice.

Short of that, ignoring these fools in both Likud and Hamas would be a good start.

Talkers talk, walkers walk.

Both have talked enough bullshit over the years.

There is a marvelous scene in the movie Lust for Life in which a young Vincent Van Gogh is fervently preaching to his congregation. One man standing at the back listens, identifies Preacher Van Gogh as a phony and waves him off before exiting the church.

We should do the same.

Maybe Bibi of Likud, President for Life, missed his true calling.  

Maybe he should have been a painter.

Or a soccer player.

Come to think of it, he was, and a pretty good one.

Maybe he should play soccer with the Palestinians.

A little sportsmanship would help.

Friends and Enemies

There’s no logical reason why Jews cannot live alongside Palestinian Muslims.

They are not natural enemies.

Indeed, they are brothers.

Mohammed modeled Islam off Judaism, which helps explain why both share similar traits and customs.

Certainly they are not a threat to each other operationally.

Here is why.

Both religions are rules oriented.  To be a member means that one must obey many procedures, dictates and customs.

Learning such rules takes time and extensive acculturation.

As such, it isn’t likely that a member of one is going to abandon his religion in order to learn another which also has many rules, but different, requiring a hefty investment of time.

People are generally lazy.

It’s much more likely that a member of one of these religions will join Christianity which has few rules.

Other than accepting Christ as your savior, doing unto others as you would have others do unto you, and renouncing wealth which few Christians obey anyway, it’s a nobrainer to go from a rules-based religion to Christianity. Which many do.

You mean that’s it,asks the potential convert.   Jesus, where do I sign up?

Christianity stands as the true threat to all rules-based religions which is why Christians  have been traditionally persecuted all over the world in different eras by many religions including pagan religions.

Rome gets bragging rights.

Contributing to this threat is Christianity’s missionary zeal, its commitment to spreading its good news, its fervor to convert everyone to Christianity.

The stands in contrast to the Jews who have no interest in converting anyone unless the person applies and then jumps through many hoops.

It is this reluctance to proselytize and convert which enables the Jews to live side-by-side amongst Muslims in peace.

Hence Judaism does not serve as a drain on Islam.

Nor is Islam a threat to Judaism.  Even though Islam seeks to convert, Judaism is not viewed as low hanging fruit or prime meat because of its low volume and non-desire to convert Muslims.

So what results is a symbiotic relationship between Jews and Muslims. 

Which explains why the Jews followed the Muslims when the Christians kicked the Muslims out of Spain.

And why Jews, barring a major shift in the religion, will always prefer Muslims over Christians.

Close examination will reveal great working relationships between Jews and Muslims spanning centuries.

What you see going on in Israel and Palestine today is an aberration fueled by greed, greed fueled by another religion which hasn’t yet defined itself as a religion but is one nonetheless.

The religion is called Corporatism and it seeks not to convert but to destroy.

It requires that you abandon your religion completely and accept its amorphous, numb doctrine of consumption and whatever bullshit it’s selling.

But it has no empathy and desire to understand your plight. Having no mind,  it runs roughshod over those standing in its way.

It identifies an enemy and takes it. It mindlessly asks its adherents to annihilate the perceived enemy.  It only requires that you obey.

There is no God of decency in it.

Truth means nothing. Lies are its currency.

And so Jews who are not Jews supported by Christians who are not Christians – having converted to Corporatism – work together to destroy Palestinians with impunity.

Corporatism is a pernicious, malicious, and malignant religion.

It arose from the void left when people abandoned their religion.

It took the simplicity and zeal of Christianity and fused it with the obedience of Judaism plus the idea that this Earth is all that there is.

Follow me and consume all.

It is the doctrine of a cancer cell.

It takes no prisoners.

It will destroy Jews and Muslims alike.  

Christians too.

How to Fix Gaza

Let’s begin with how not to fix Gaza.

What won’t work is what’s being done now.

What will work is what’s not being done now.

Israel should allow unrestricted free flow of goods and services into the Gaza Strip minus of course the obvious – nuclear materials, jets, weapons and so forth.

Justified?  No.

Workable?  Yes.

They should allow those Palestinians who wish to return to their homes within Israel proper the opportunity.

Crazy? Seemingly.

Workable?  Yes.

A small percentage of Palestinians will desire to do so. Many I suspect will remain where they grew up – in the Gaza Strip.

Should the Palestinians fire rockets, the Israelis should take a bunch for the greater good.

A good leader has to take a little blowback.

By not retaliating excessively, the Israelis give peace a chance.

What passes in Gaza can be a model for the West Bank.

Tear down the ugly, ugly checkpoints and barriers and allow people to live where they want to live.

Permit Palestinians free access and free rights to travel.

Will there be more bombings and stabbings?

Yes, but every society has problems.  It takes time to heal wounds.

Instead of creating new enemies, try doing what you know is counterintuitive, unjustified yet workable – patience, understanding and kindness.

Reparations would be a good step.

Yes, but will an olive branch or an offer of kindness be slapped away?

Initially, yes.  People are upset.

In time, the violence will fade.

Long before people were Palestinians and Jews they were people.

And what people want is a happy life, a chance to make a few bucks and the opportunity to contribute.

Give them that, and they’ll be on their way peacefully.

As for the knuckleheads and hardliners who refuse to adjust, well, every society has those.

Treat those people as common criminals not as representatives of Palestinians who desire to annihilate the state of Israel. 

Sometimes you have to try to not  look too hard.  A little benign neglect might help.

Yes, but won’t Israel cease to become a Jewish state?  

No, because elections, like elsewhere, are a joke, a ruse to pacify the masses.  

As Mark Twain once said: If elections mattered, they’d never let us vote.

So too in Israel.

Which is why Israel has no fear of Muslims who, until the creation of the state of Israel, lived peacefully with Jews for centuries.

So live peacefully together again.

Arabs and Jews live across the street from each other in the United States.

Do what we do in America:  Romanticize your past with lies that never happened.  Create heroes who perform impossible feats like throwing a shekel across the Jordan River.

People eat that up. 

The alternative to doing business as usual will be far worse.

As a former soccer player, Bibi should understand that it’s never good policy to underestimate your opponent.

The player who has the upper hand and thinks that he has the game all wrapped up soon finds himself on the losing end.

So, assuming that Bibi, President for Life, decides to have a change of heart, can what is suggested here be implemented?

Not over night, that’s for sure.  There has been too much suffering.

Changing everything overnight would be disastrous.  It would be like asking a hard-core heroin addict to go cold turkey.

It’s not like the people are being asked to give up chocolate, which by the way was relatively unavailable to the people of Gaza prior to 2007 thanks to restrictions.  

Hatred like heroin is powerfully addicting.

But if a reasonable but not ridiculous goal of twenty years was set, there is no reason why change can not occur at 5% per annum.

It sounds like it’s worth a try.

Israel, Palestine and Pseudo-Jews

Israel needs to dictate the solution to the Palestinian home land.

For better or for worse, they need to articulate what they are willing to accept.

Rapidly.

If they are unwilling, too devious, or too stupid to do so, then the US must dictate a rational, real world solution.

Trust me, it doesn’t require a genius.

What’s required is intellectual honesty, clear thinking and a desire to do so.

Conditions in Gaza  grow worse every day.

Avigdor  “Psychobitch” Lieberman, the pseudo-Jew and Johnny-Come-Lately Israeli, is really putting the screws to the Palestinians.

Since Psychobitch is too stupid to see that his punishments will only cause a worsening of the situation – clearly he hasn’t read the Torah once – and since he takes his orders from Bibi, who I am convinced failed his Bar Mitzvah exam, it will probably fall to the US to avert a humanitarian disaster.

Of late Psychobitch has reduced the fishing zone of Palestinians from 9 miles to 6 miles off the Gaza coast. He has also stopped fuel shipments into Gaza.

Desperate people do desperate things.

One of my fears has been that Gazans, seeing no future, and having no hope, but still possessing a desire to preserve dignity, will quietly commit mass suicide by marching toward the Gaza perimeter fence in attempt to shame Israel and their US-GB supporters.

But can Israel and its chief backers be shamed?

Clearly the goal is to get Gazans to abandon Gaza.

Bibi has already publicly stated that he will not permit a Palestinian state west of the Jordan River.

Well if that’s the case, Einstein, then it’s incumbent upon you to figure out where you’re going to put them.

As I say, the sooner the better because Psychobitch would just as soon kill them all.  By the way, Psychobitch is the guy who proposed bombing the Aswan Damn a few years ago. That maneuver might’ve killed millions.

Given that a catastrophe serves no one’s interest, and given that both the US and GB worked with the Israelis to fuck the Palestinians out of their land, it seems reasonable for these Gazans and West Bankers (they’re next) to be offered conditional citizenship in the US and GB.

Short of that, some land distant from Israel should be found.

If it will bring peace to Israel and the Middle East, it’s worth the price.  It’s the right thing to do.

You broke it, you bought it.

It’s not Bibi’s fault that he’s stupid.  He was most likely a bright boy before he attended MIT where they serve up the stupid juice by the boatload.

Regarding the term. pseudo-Jew, a real Jew would follow the precepts of Judaism; and, just in case you’re thinking, there is no such thing as a cultural Jew.  The term cultural Jew is used by those Jews who want to conduct all sorts of immorality while sanctifying themselves by keeping a menorah down by the bar.  Or I guess they get up in the middle of the night and sing, “If I veh a rich man … ya da da da da da da.”  At any rate, you are ether a Jew, or you’re not a Jew.  Likewise, you are either a Christian, or you are not a Christian.  What you call yourself must be conferred by your adherence to those principles; it can not be conferred by a parent, a teacher, a school or your decision to call yourself that in the face of overwhelming evidence that you are not that.

Israel and Biology

What we are witnessing in Israel is never pretty because it shows the dark side of who we are.

One population is replacing another.

The Jews are taking over the land that was previously occupied by another – the Palestinians.

Of course, they had plenty of Christian help.

There’s no stopping it despite half-hearted attempts to do so.

Moving across borders, setting up shop, rubbing people out – it’s something we humans do.

We’re good at it.

We’ve been doing it ever since we began walking on the planet.  And before.

Now, we fancy ourselves as humane and civilized, but we’re not.  We’re the same as we have ever been, and we are going to continue to be that way.

We’re not evolving into an energy force field as the human potential movement wishes we would.

We’re not going to become enlightened anytime soon.

And we’re not stamping out racism.  Indeed, racism is in part a biological survival mechanism.

As uncomfortable as it may be to acknowledge in this age of political correctness, racism is biology’s way of saying:  We think our genetics is worth preserving, and so we will kill you to prove it and preserve it.

When I began pediatrics in 1982, a baby developed according to reliable milestones.  He or she supported his head by 4 months, sat up by 7.5 months, said his first word by 9 months, walked by 15 months, spoke at least five words by 20 months.

Thirty-six years later, the development of a baby is the same.  Exactly the same.

It’s been the same for thousands of years.

What this means is that Julius Caesar developed the same way you did.

What this means is that human beings five thousand years and beyond will develop the same way you did.

Not only will the physical development be the same, the emotions linked to that development will be the same as well.

People five thousand years from now will feel the same positive and negative emotions you feel.

People will laugh and feel joyful; they will also get mad and feel angry.  Other emotions such as envy and greed will exist as well.

Yes, people will still feel compassion; but that will be offset by smug contempt of others.

For better or worse, we are trapped within our biology.

War and aggression will aways be with us.

One group of people will always desire the possessions of another.

Our biology will mandate it.
