Hat tip to Swede, who provided a link to Jonathan Tobin’s piece in Commentary, wondering why the “terrorist” leaders of Palestine have not been able to bomb-proof the entire prison compound. Tobin sets a new bar, the highest I have seen in the blame-the-victim game, and the lowest of the imperialist mindset in which other humans become unpeople. He is disgusting, low, vile and sickening. He makes me wanna puke.
Gaza does not present a military threat to Israel. It has no army, it’s weaponry is mostly rocks and sticks. Israel can attack it at will and have thugs like Tobin crawl out from under the floor boards to support it. But if there is no military objective, and if the real objective is to distract us, to teach them a lesson, to keep them in a permanent state of high tension, then there is a word for what Israel is doing:
Systematic use of violence to create a general climate of fear in a population and thereby to bring about a particular political objective.
I am fully aware that readers will think my assertions that Israel can both attack itself and attack Gaza at will to be far-fetched. Gaza is not a threat to Israel. It’s leaders, those not compromised anyway, are not stupid, nor would they willingly inflict a reign of terror on their own people by poking a stick at the US-armed monster next door. That merely enables the Israelis to unleash the terror machine, and makes no sense. Those F16 pilots with bombs strapped to their bellies are impervious to retaliation. Gaza cannot defend itself. This is sick.
Gaza is a prison. It is a toy for psychopaths who routinely go in and beat it up. It’s almost sport for these monsters. But I have to ask, after you read the hate-filled blood-dripping Tobin piece, if you are internalizing psychopathic behavior, embracing cold-blooded murderers and praising them in their demonic work.
If so, why have your standards of civilized behavior sunk so low? How did you allow this to happen to yourself? I know the answer, but won’t say it, as people get angry when I suggest that their thoughts and attitudes are not original, but rather given them by means of suggestion and mass psychological manipulation. People are not natural born killers. They have to be made that way. You had to be trained to avoid facts, hate Palestinians and love Israelis. Were it not for news, movies, TV, comedians and pundits who routinely immerse you in this world of hatred and barbarism, your thoughts would be normal, you would sympathize with the victims and demand justice for the criminals.
I just won’t go there. No sir. Not going there.
