Sometimes you get so fed up with the bull that we are constantly bombarded with by the bombastic hocus pocus Bush administration and congress not to mention the news media that you just want to bang your head into a bloody pulp and pull your hair out by the roots. Then there is the great teeming public most of whom have no desire to know the reality of what we as a nation do which is the same thing as the reality of what our national leaders actually are which doesn’t nor cannot stand the light of day.

Let’s start with the teeming masses, ignorant, stupid beyond compare, violent inarticulate fools and racists whose interests lie somewhere between having a big truck with an extra loud muffler and stuffing their faces with cheese burgers. Most of them couldn’t find the United States on a map.

Here is a video with Max Blumenthal interviewing America’s finest on Gaza and it is very disheartening to say the least
via Dennis Perrin who say’s… and I quote…

Kudos to Max Blumenthal for weathering this madness. What a bunch of assholes. And I love how Charles Schumer touts Israel texting Gazans, warning them of impending missile strikes. How humane. I bet Gazans appreciate the head's up before their homes are blown to smithereens. I know I would.

But all is not lost for America has produced intelligent beings somehow, some way, apparently beating the odds of natural selection and a culture based on military glory. Norman Finkelstein has written a short but comprehensive piece over at Counterpunch – an excellent web site to get an alternative view on reality from that of the MSM – regarding Gaza, Israel, and our “special relationship.”


The problem all along has been that Israel doesn’t want Gaza to develop, and Israel doesn’t want to resolve diplomatically the conflict, both the leadership in Damascus and the leadership in the Gaza have repeatedly made statements they’re willing to settle the conflict in the June 1967 border. The record is fairly clear. In fact, it’s unambiguously clear.

This is an extremely important point that Israel doesn’t wish to resolve the conflict in a diplomatic manner. Israel wishes to dominate the region in a militaristic manner. Israel doesn’t wish to see a two-state solution because Israel still believes it can expand its territory though at this point it may be unlikely that they will be able to do so. Despite the video above, many Americans have been able to see through the propaganda, a result of pictures of young Palestinian children whose mutilated bodies are being pulled from the rubble left by the brutal air war waged by Israel which has the international community in an uproar. Israel has only made Hamas stronger, lost the PR battle despite its all-out efforts at propaganda and now appears to much of the world as what they actually are, a bunch of thuggish murderers. I am speaking mainly of the Israeli government because it is important to note that not all Israeli citizens have supported this massacre in Gaza. Thinking of an entire group of people as a monolithic block is always a mistake but then America has its share of blockheads.

In order to counter our news media a few important points must be kept in mind. One is that it was Israel who broke the ceasefire. Another point is that Hamas was elected in a democratic election.

As was documented in the April 2008 issue of Vanity Fair by the writer David Rose, basing himself on internal US documents, it was the United States in cahoots with the Palestinian Authority and Israel which were attempting a putsch on Hamas, and Hamas preempted the putsch. That, too, is no longer debatable or no longer a controversial claim.

This the incident that the news media always uses to present Hamas as taking control of Gaza through a violent uprising, NO, HAMAS WAS ELECTED AND THEN THE U.S., ISRAL, AND THE PA TRIED TO OUST THEM!!!! OKAY? I do ever so hope that this is clear now.

The United States and Israel would like everyone to believe that Hamas is not a legitimate part of the Palestinian government and have been doing everything possible to convince us that this is so. No, Hamas is not perfect, no, I don’t support Hamas sending missiles into Israel, or suicide bombings nor killing Israelis in general but what must remain intact in our febrile minds concerning this slaughter is that the Palestinians have as much right to live their lives in peace and self-governance themselves as much as we do. It might even be argued that the Palestinians have a government that is much closer to a true democracy then that of our own.

Some important points to remember are:

1. Israel broke the ceasefire not Palestine.

2. Hamas are a legitimate part of the Palestinian government.

3. The Israeli invasion has nothing to do with Hamas, their rockets, or the ceasefire and everything to do with expanding territory.

4. In order for Israel to expand they must keep Palestine from becoming a state.

5. The Palestinians have been willing to make many concessions to create a peaceful solution, Israel has not.

6. The Palestinians have made numerous peace offers and Israel has rejected them all out of hand.

7. The problem is not Palestine but Israel and the United States.

But go read all of Norman Finkelstein’s essay which covers all of this and more.
