16 January 2009 Thought for the Week:

Israel is engulfed once more with righteous fury that translates into destructive policies in the Gaza Strip. This appalling self-justification for the inhumanity and impunity is not just annoying, it is a subject worth dwelling on, if one wants to understand the international immunity for the massacre that rages on in Gaza. It is based first and foremost on sheer lies transmitted with a newspeak reminiscent of darker days in 1930s Europe. Every half an hour a news bulletin on the radio and television describes the victims of Gaza as terrorists and Israel's massive killings of them as an act of self-defence.

Israel presents itself to its own people as the righteous victim that defends itself against a great evil. The academic world is recruited to explain how demonic and monstrous is the Palestinian struggle, if it is led by Hamas. These are the same scholars who demonized the late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat in an earlier era and delegitimized his Fatah movement during the second Palestinian intifada.

But the lies and distorted representations are not the worst part of it. It is the direct attack on the last vestiges of humanity and dignity of the Palestinian people that is most enraging. The Palestinians in Israel have shown their solidarity with the people of Gaza and are now branded as a fifth column in the Jewish state; their right to remain in their homeland cast as doubtful given their lack of support for the Israeli aggression…”

HOW ISRAELI LEADERS KILL FOR THEIR PEOPLE 'S VOTES

- Gilad Atzmon:
Israeli-born musician and writer Gilad Atzmon, who has renounced his Jewishness and Israeli nationality, explains Israel's massacre of Palestinians in Gaza in terms of Israeli culture, which is imbued with racism and a murderous hatred of Arabs in general and Palestinians in particular.
Source: https://www.redress.cc/zionism/gatzmon20081230 (30/12/08).

'In order to grasp the latest devastating and murderous Israeli expedition in Gaza, one must deeply comprehend the Israeli identity and its inherent hatred towards anyone who is not Jewish and towards Arabs in particular. This hatred is imbued in the Israeli curriculum, it is preached by political leaders and implied by their acts, and it is conveyed by cultural figures, even within the so-called "Israeli left".

I grew up in Israel in the 1970s. People of my generation are nowadays leaders in the Israeli army, politics, economy, academia and the arts. We were trained to believe that "a good Arab is a dead Arab". A few weeks before I joined the Israeli armed forces in the early 1980s, General Rafael Eitan, the chief of staff at the time, announced that the "Arabs were stoned cockroaches in a bottle". He got away with it; he also got away with the murder of many thousands of Lebanese civilians in the first Lebanon war. In a word, Israelis manage to get away with murder. Luckily enough, and for reasons that are still far beyond my comprehension, at a certain stage I woke up out of that lethal Hebraic dream. At some point I left the Jewish state, I evaded the Jewish hate-mongering, I had become an opponent of the Jewish state and any other form of Jewish politics. However, I am utterly convinced that it is my primary duty to inform every being that is willing to listen about that which are we up against.

A 'state of their own has failed miserably:
Although the central purpose of Zionism was to transform Jews by "giving them a state of their own" and making them like any other people, it has failed miserably. The Israeli barbarism that we saw this week and too many times before is far beyond bestiality. It is killing for the sake of killing. And it is indiscriminate. Few people in the west are aware of the devastating fact that killing Arabs and Palestinians in particular is a very effective Israeli political recipe. The Israelis are indeed a confused people. As much as they insist upon seeing themselves as a "shalom-seeking" nation, they also love to be led by politicians with an astonishing record of murderous activity.

Whether it was Sharon, Rabin, Begin, Shamir or Ben Gurion, Israelis love their "democratically-elected leaders" to be belligerent hawks with their hands dripping with blood and backed by a solid record of crimes against humanity. We are weeks before an election in Israel and it would seem that both the prime ministerial candidates of Kadima and Labour, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni and Defence Minister Ehud Barak, are trailing well behind the Likud candidate, the notorious hawk Binyamin "Bibi" Netanyahu. Livni and Barak need their little war. They must prove to the Israelis that they know how to engage in mass slaughter. Both Livni and Barak have to provide the Israeli voter with some real exhibition of devastating carnage, so that he Israelis can trust their leadership. This is their only chance against Netanyahu. Seemingly, Livni and Barak are throwing tons of bombs on Palestinian civilians, schools and hospitals because this is exactly what the Israelis want to see.

Israelis are not known for mercy and grace:
Unfortunately, Israelis are not known for mercy and grace. Instead, they are appeased by retaliation and vengeance, they are cheered by their own limitless brutality. When former Israeli Air Force commander Dan Halutz was asked how it feels to drop a bomb on a highly populated neighbourhood in Gaza, his answer was short and precise. "It feels like a light bump on the right wing," was his reply. Halutz's cold, deadly manner was enough to secure his promotion to armed forces chief of staff shortly thereafter. It was General Halutz who led the Israeli army into the second Lebanon war. It was this man who perpetrated the destruction of Lebanese infrastructure and large parts of Beirut.

Seemingly, in Israeli politics Arab blood is translated into votes. It would obviously be very reasonable to charge Livni, Barak and the current armed forces chief of staff, Gabriel Ashkenazi, with first-degree murder, crimes against humanity and obvious breaches of the Geneva Conventions. But it would be far more meaningful to take into account that Israel is a "democracy". Livni, Barak and Ashkenazi are giving the Israeli people that which they want: it is called Arab blood and it must come in vast quantities. This repetitive murderous practice, conducted by Israeli politicians, reflects on the Israeli people as a whole rather than just a few politicians and generals. We are dealing here with a barbarian society that is politically driven by bloodthirstiness and lethal inclinations. There should be no mistake: there is no room for these people among civilized nations.

This somehow allows them to punish Palestinians for Nazi crimes:
Why the Israeli people are so remote from any notion of humanism is a big question. The generous and na 've humanists among us may argue that the Shoah, or Holocaust, left a big scar in the Israeli soul. This may explain why Israelis are obsessively cultivating that very memory with the support of their Diaspora brothers and sisters. The Israelis say "never again" and what they mean is that Auschwitz should never reoccur. This somehow allows them to punish the Palestinian for the crimes committed by the Nazis.

However, the realists among us do not buy this argument anymore. They are now beginning to acknowledge that it is more than possible that the Israelis are so incredibly brutal just because this is how they are. It goes far beyond rationality or pseudo-analytical assumptions. They say: "this is what the Israelis are and there is not much we can do about it anymore".
The realists among us have come to admit that killing is how the Israelis interpret the meaning of being Jewish. Gravely, many of us are coming to admit that there is no alternative humanist secular Jewish value system to replace the murderous Hebraic one. The Jewish state is there to prove that Jewish national autonomy is an inhuman concept.

I grew up in post-1967 Israel. I was raised in the wake of the Israeli mythical victory. We were trained to worship the "Israeli who shoots from the hip", the platoon commando who shoots his Uzi automatic rifle in the direction of the Arabs and manages to win against four armies in just six days. It may have taken me two decades too long to understand that the Israeli who "shoots from the hip" was actually the master of indiscriminate killing. Barak was one of those 1967 heroes, he was a master indiscriminate killer. Apparently, the Israeli cabinet has just approved his plan for the biggest raid on Gaza since 1967.

Livni is more or less my age and, as we know from the news, she has internalized the message. She is now accumulating the necessary credentials as an indiscriminate murderer. Both Barak and Livni are taking Israel and Palestine into an election campaign of slaughter. Arab and Palestinian blood is the fuel of Israeli politics. I may just suggest to Livni and Barak that it may not help them in the polls. Netanyahu is a genuine, authentic hawk. He doesn't have to pretend to be a murderer, and as much as I despise him, he has yet to take Israel into a war. He probably understands better than them what the power of deterrence is all about.

Memo from the same webpage:
This article by Gilad Atzmon is refreshingly candid. I would add that everything he says about 'Israelis' applies also to American Zionists including those who are surprised to discover Israel's essential racism and then find that this does not induce them to audibly oppose racist violence that was never really disguised in the first place.

The blindness of US Zionist support for Israel is not caused by an urgent need to support something which cannot be justified as it really is, in plain sight. That notion, like all excuses for Israel, requires 'angry' denial of reason. The cause and effect go the other way. The luxurious chauvinistic approval Israel enjoys from US Zionists is the source of the unlimited financial support provided by all US taxpayers (over eight million dollars a day) wangled from us through our inability to believe the obvious truth our Zionist friends, neighbours, and mass-media want us to deny. That unlimited support, with no questions asked, is what causes Israeli policies to be determined by the psychopaths who inevitably rise to top Israeli leadership by getting the quickest, bloodiest results: the policies that take utmost advantage of unlimited money and no accountability.

The geographic distance and psychic disconnect between the complacent soccer-mom Zionists among us and the hideous results of their comfy support for Israel, is exactly the disconnect that allows unthinkable barbarism 'the insanity of war' to prevail in Palestine and all the spin-off wars in the Middle East, belying all our espoused beliefs. The pleasing congeniality of our Zionist friends turns to resentment and censorship if we mention the ethnic-cleansing of Palestine. And that hostile reaction, just inside the congenial surface, is the near end of the racist violence which, at the other end, slaughters perfectly innocent men, women, and children, as 'regrettably required' for the constant expansion of an officially 'Jewish' state in multi-ethnic Palestine.


GREAT TWENTIETH CENTURY SCRIBES

by Betty Luks
Gilad Atzmon 's article (above) brought to mind such men as Eric D. Butler, Ivor Benson and Douglas Reed. All three wrote from a traditional-historical Christian viewpoint and all three wrote on the Jewish-Zionist question.
(Some of the smaller booklets are available online under the Library section of www.alor.org. A fuller list of important books that are available from all Heritage Book Services and Veritas Publications at the end of this article.)

I well remember when Douglas Reed 's book 'The Controversy of Zion was released in 1978, it caused such consternation among some Christian groups, while the Zionists ignored it. Here was a writer analysing and criticising the ideology behind portions of the Old Testament in the light of Christ 's teachings and how the ideology was outworked in this day and age.

These were fearless men who suffered the hate and malice of the Zionist 's mouthpieces be they politicians or journalists to tell the people how it is really was and is. Ivor Benson saw the story of 'The Controversy of Zion as 'part of the history of the 20th Century which 'throws light on a struggle of which the multitudes know nothing even though the struggle is 'conducted relentlessly and unceasingly on the battleground of the human mind.
Douglas Reed was a London Times correspondent in Central Europe and author of numerous books each amplifying a hundredfold the scope available to him as one of the world 's leading foreign correspondents of an earlier time.

In the epilogue of his book 'The Controversy of Zion he wrote:
'I have written with feeling: the feeling of a contemporary, participant, eye-witness and of a journalist thwarted in his calling, which in my belief should serve truth without fear or favour, not special interests. I have seen more of the events of our century and of the secret perversions of national purposes than most, and have discovered through this experience that it was not all chance, but design. Therefore I have written a protest, but it is a protest against the suppression of truth, not against life. It is a contemporary's tale of history in the making

Anyway. I leave the dispassionate analysis to the future scribe, whose flesh and heartbeat will not be involved: to him the microscope, to me the living spectacle. I am involved. "In history" (said Lord Macaulay) "only the interpretation according to doctrinal necessity ever seems to survive, as the inconvenient and contradictory facts are forgotten or ignored." On that count, this living scribe may be acquitted.
I have not ignored anything known to me and I have presented what I know as truly as I am able. I have given the picture of our century as it appeared to a man involved, and as it was withheld from the public masses, who as they went along received only "the interpretation" according to what politicians held to be necessity.

In our time, I judge, a barbaric superstition born in antiquity and nurtured through the ages by a semi-secret priesthood, has returned to plague us in the form of a political movement supported by great wealth and power in all great capitals of the world. Through the two methods used, revolution from below and the corruption of governments from above, it has come far towards success in a fantastic ambition of achieving world dominion, using these two instruments to incite nations against each other

The forces which have been projected into the 20th Century, as from some dinosauric cavern, are superstitious ones. I have had a constant sense of contact with the minds of men like Ezekiel, who in barbarous times had barbarous thoughts. I had a distinct feeling of re-encounter with such minds in our present time, though in a place recently redeemed from barbarism, when I read a book, 'A Pattern of Islands, by Sir Arthur Grimble.
This recounts the author's experiences, early in the 20th Century, as a British colonial administrator in a remote group of Pacific islands, the Gilberts, where the people lived in a state of primeval superstition until 1892, when a British protectorate was proclaimed. I find an uncanny resemblance between the curses enumerated in Deuteronomy, which forms The Law of Zionist nationalism today, and the words of a curse on a cooking oven, used by these islands before the British came
In my judgment we have to deal with a force, released on the world in the 20th Century, the leaders of which think in terms of such superstitions; to what else can Dr. Chaim Weizmann's belated, tormented words have alluded ' the resurgence of the old evil in a new and more horrible guise"

I came across this description of pre-protectorate days in the Gilbert Islands:
"A man with sixty generations of terror-struck belief whispering in his blood was easy meat for the death magic... Generation on generation of sorcerers who willed evil, and of people who dreaded their power, had lived out their lives in these islands. The piled-up horror of their convictions had achieved, down the ages, a weight and shadow of its own, an immanence that brooded over everything. It was man's thoughts, more potent than ghosts, that haunted the habitation of men. One felt that practically anything could happen in that atmosphere".
'For it is the day of the Lord 's vengeance and the year of recompenses for the controversy of Zion - Isaiah 34:8:
"Men's thoughts, more potent than ghosts, haunted the habitations of men" Again, the liberation so barely missed seemed to me to be described in these words of an old woman of the Gilbert Islands who remembered the earlier time:
"Listen to the voices of the people in their lodges. We work in peace, we talk in peace. For the days of anger are gone... How beautiful is life in our villages, now that there is no killing and war is no more"; and these words, again, most strongly recall Jeremiah's lament for the former happiness of Israel ("the kindness of thy youth, the love of thine espousals") in his rebuke to the heresy of "treacherous Judah".

The feeling I had, in tracing the story of this ancient superstition and its re- emergence as a political force in our century, was that of contact with a living, evil thing. The destructive revolution, in my view, is part of it

In this 20th Century process, which I feel as an accompanying, evil presence, all of us now alive, Jew and Gentile, are involved, and most of us will see the denouement hatred is their monopoly, and creed, and they cannot make Christians, or Gentiles, hate Jews
The teaching of hatred, as part of a religion, still comes only from the literal Torah-Talmudists in the revolutionary area, in Palestine, and where they have nested in Western capitals '
The world cannot live like that, and for this reason the insensate plan must ultimately fail. This is the heresy which the teaching of Christ above all else repudiated '

DR. TOBEN SCORES A VICTORY FOR FREEDOM OF SPEECH

by Ian Wilson LL.B:
It is good news to hear that Dr. Fredrick T 'ben, who questions the received story on the holocaust, is now a free man after avoiding extradition to Germany on Holocaust denial charges. He was helped by Michele Renouf, who is still a great beauty (see The Australian 29-30/11/08 p.7) and who also has a good legally-strategic mind.
The lawyers, following her suggestion, argued that the European arrest warrant was too vague to act on.

Dr. T 'ben wanted to argue an ideological defence about the merits of his views, which of course misses the point of a legal argument, which must address the law, not merits questions. Fortunately T 'ben went with her and won.

There is a lesson in this for the freedom movement or anyone else who might fall foul of the law. Get legal advice from a good lawyer. Don 't think that your interesting subject is going to win the judge over. Courtrooms are for the examination of facts and the law, not philosophical debates. That is for law schools and law journals. Congratulations Dr. T 'ben !


THE NEW EUROPEAN 'RELIGION '?

In much of Europe, the state religion is not Christianity or even Islam but the new religion of holocaust. To question or deny any doctrine of this new creed is to risk job loss, fines or prison. German jails alone hold thousands of dissidents who have not sufficiently genuflected to this new religion. The names of imprisoned heretics have included publisher Ernst Zundel, publisher Germar Rudolf, author/lecturer Fredrick Toben and historian David Irving. As free speech supporters, "every man must stand behind the men behind the wire."

A recent letter from political prisoner Ernst Zundel, now serving five years in a German jail for being, as he calls it, "a holocaust skeptic," predicts that he will be forced to serve his full time. His scheduled release date is March 1, 2010. Were he in prison for armed robbery, assault or drug pushing, under German law, he would likely get early release for "good behaviour," but, being a political prisoner, he can expect no such mercy or consideration.

In his letter, Mr. Zundel reports that his lawyers have filed a 63-page complaint to the European Human Rights Commission is Strausbourg, but have received no acknowledgement for reply. Mr. Zundel refers to author Francis Parker Yockey, who wrote the seminal work 'Imperium at an Irish monastery in 1948.

Yockey had worked as a prosecutor at the Nuremburg Trials and was very concerned about the decline of the West. He predicted that the later part of the 20th century would see courts corrupted and used to suppress dissent and racial consciousness. From the farcical German legal circuses to Canada's "human rights tribunal" kangaroo courts, where truth is no defence, we see Yockey's predictions coming true.
He also saw Western man as tired and dispirited and, perhaps, unwilling or unable to rise to the defence of his rights. Mr. Zundel wonders whether Yockey, sadly, may have been correct, when he considers the relative passivity of so many in Europe and Canada to the theft of their rights to freedom of speech.

If you'd like to drop Ernst Zundel a note or letter of encouragement, here is his mailing address:

NO LEFT BIAS AT UNI? WHAT ! WHAT !

by James Reed
A Senate Inquiry established by the Howard government has found that there is no evidence of Left-wing bias in our universities. What! What! - And God didn 't make 'the little green apples '!

The Howard government inquiry was established one week before it lost control of the Upper House and the Committee became dominated by Labor Senators. When tabling the report the Inquiry was said to have been a waste of time according to a Labor Senator from Victoria. Committee chairman Gavin Marshall wrote in the report:
'If there is a Left conspiracy to influence the direction of the nation 's affairs and its social and economic priorities through the process of subverting a generation of undergraduates, this is not yet evident.

No, the Inquiry showed the Left-wing bias of the Labor Party. The influence of the Left in the Humanities and Social Sciences is obvious. Go to any campus, sit in on a lecture (if you are permitted) and you will easily 'smell the stench of Leftism (cultural-Marxism). Not only the universities but the schools are full of Leftist, politically correct feminist teachers and a curriculum that devotes more time to the Dreamtime than to British history and sound basic skills. This explains why Australian students are being beaten in international tests by students from former Soviet bloc countries like Kazakhstan. (The Australian 10/12/08 p.1.)

In Kazakhstan, the children herd goats, then learn calculus. In Australia, a fair part of the day is spent by students being taught by Leftist 'nannies the joys of multicultural diversity. There is little time left for teaching the 'male logic of mathematics and science that is, if our predominantly female, feminist teachers were up to it.

Perhaps we should really multiculturalise our schools, by sacking all of these feminist teachers and replacing them with real teachers from Kazakhstan and other exotic places like that. Surely they wouldn 't object to this example of multiculturalism in action?


A LITTLE HISTORY WOULDN 'T GO ASTRAY HERE

by Betty Luks
In the early 1980s Victorian teacher Marion Wallis put out a little book highlighting the major changes that had and were taking place within the Australian education system and without the knowledge and understanding of the general public. In 'The Subversion of Australian Education she noted the major influence Fabian Socialist John Dewey had had on American education and how his influence was then infiltrating Australia 's education systems.

America in the 1930s:
Teacher, philosopher and educational reformer John Dewey held a position of great influence at Columbia University, New York. He became known as the most influential man in American Education. He viewed education as the kind of development which aims at the reconstruction of man in society.

In his writing 'The Underlying Philosophy of Education he expressed the following view: 'Education itself must assume an increasing responsibility for participation in projecting ideas of social change and taking part in their execution in order to be educative. ' Dewey held to the Marxist concept that man is without a soul or a free will, he also believed that man 's environment is constantly changing, and man constantly changes with it. He saw the destruction of a child 's individualistic traits as the primary goal of education. Ability to 'get along with the group became the prime measuring stick of a child 's educational 'progress '.

Prior to the 1930s, the progressives had put their theory into practice in Russia:
In the early 1920s along with fellow Fabian Socialists Bertrand Russell and Harold Laski, Dewey journeyed to Russia. For two years John Dewey worked with other English Fabians to help organize a Marxist education system for the 'Workers Paradise '. Once started, the undermining process could not be controlled and the Communists saw that the 'products of their new education were now unsuited to community life. There were now roving bands of homeless children without belief in God, family, country or any standards of ethics or morals - the revolutionaries had sown the wind and reaped a whirlwind.

In 1931 Stalin dispatched hundreds of students and their Deweyite teachers to Siberia. The Soviets went back to the '3R 's (or whatever is the Russian equivalent). Progressive education was fine for corrupting Russian society 's bourgeois capitalists but was idiotic caprice when the dictatorship was fully in control. Back in America, Dewey founded the Progressive Education Association, funded by the tax-exempt Andrew Carnegie Foundation.

Pedigree of Ideas - Progressive 'Experimental Education:
The Carnegie Foundation was the benefactor that provided for the establishment and the maintenance over some years of the Australian Council for Educational Research (A.C.E.R.) Experimental Education was introduced as part of the Diploma of Education at Melbourne University before the 1920s. Similarly it had a place in the teachers colleges of other states. In 1925 K.S. Cunningham, the first director of the Australian Council for Educational Research undertook educational studies at the Teachers College, Columbia. He was author of several books on Australian education and at one time UNESCO adviser to the Indonesian Minister of Education.

In UNESCO 's 'The Education and Training of Teachers it is recorded:
'We regard it a matter of first importance for social and international living that educators should be more concerned with the child and the healthy development of his body and mind, than with the various subjects which go to make a school curriculum ' '

Jean Wallis noted nearly thirty years ago:
Initially, the aim of traditional education could not be misunderstood. It was to teach children the rudiments of learning. In other subjects history and geography knowledge of facts was regarded as the criteria of successful teaching - and tests were the measure of knowledge.

** While Jean Wallis first book is now unavailable, her second book 'The Disaster Road is available from our Book Services for $14.00 plus postage.
