Random Quotations – Israel – Jan. 29th, 2019

Six items in total…

“The Israeli army has enough bullets for every Palestinian… Apartheid-land theft: 700 Israeli communities ban Arabs… Israel working to undermine free speech in the United States… Time for Israel to be held accountable” – The above are sub-headings in the important article “Israel: Ethnic cleansing, land theft, apartheid and racism against Palestinians” by Kevin Zeese and Margaret Flowers, appearing in Global Research on Dec. 18th, 2018. This very revealing article can be read here.

“No news is more fake than the reporting in the U.S. media that relates to the state of Israel. Former Illinois congressman Paul Findley in his seminal book They Dare to Speak Out: People and Institutions Confront Israel’s Lobby observed that nearly all the foreign press correspondents working out of Israel are Jewish while most of the editors that they report to at news desks are also Jews, guaranteeing that the articles that eventually surface in the newspapers will be carefully constructed to minimize any criticism of the Jewish state. The same goes for television news, particularly on cable news stations like CNN.” – Philip Giraldi, “Israel is bad for America” – The Unz Review, Jan. 1st, 2019.

“The media accuses Trump of paying too little attention to Israel’s needs. Israel needs US troops in Syria and in Germany, US jets in Spain and Qatar, US ships in Italy and the Gulf. Israel needs the US to lead NATO to contain Russia. If Israel needs it, the US should provide, says Daniel Shapiro, the ex-ambassador. Not a single American newspaper, not a single US statesman cared to reply that President Trump had been elected by the American people to do what is needed for them, not for Israel.” – Israel Shamir, “Banned by Facebook for telling the truth” – The Unz Review, Jan. 19th, 2019.

“The tiny enclave is on life support, having endured three devastating and sustained attacks by Israel, as well as a suffocating blockade, over the past decade. Thousands of homes are in ruins, the water supply is nearly undrinkable, electricity in short supply, and unemployment sky-high… But as is so often the case, the enclave’s immediate fate rests in the hands of Israeli politicians desperate to cast themselves as Israel’s warmonger-in-chief and thereby reap an electoral dividend… Strangely, Netanyahu now sounds like the most moderate voice in his cabinet. Fellow politicians are demanding Israel ‘restore its deterrence’ – a euphemism for again laying waste to Gaza.” – Jonathan Cook, “Netanyahu’s ceasefire is meant to keep Gaza imprisoned” – The Unz Review, Nov. 19th, 2018.

“Nationalists will inevitably distort the tale to reflect their own vision of what their homeland represents and how it came to be, but Israel’s story is unusual in that it is packed with lies from start to finish. Even before the creation of a Jewish state, Zionists encouraged Jewish emigration from Europe to the then Turkish-controlled Palestine. They coined the expression “a land without people for people without a land,” a flat out lie as Palestine was fully inhabited by Muslim and Christian Palestinian Arabs plus a small Jewish minority. This expression has been more recently replaced with another one, i.e. how Israel “made the desert bloom,” as if the land were not being cultivated before large numbers of Jews arrived, making it another lie.” – Philip M. Giraldi, Ph.D., “Israel’s story: Lies from top to bottom” – The Unz Review, Jan. 29th, 2019.

And also:

“Indeed, Israel and its partisans are now using lies to change the way the public views the issue of anti-Semitism and are willing to do so by legislating to enforce how people think, to include the use of legal sanctions consisting of fines and imprisonment to silence critics. If legislation currently in congress is ever implemented fully, it will be the death of freedom of speech in the U.S. That such nonsense has gained currency at all is due to the Israeli corruption of both America’s government and its news media, which is not a lie, but the absolute truth that you won’t find discussed anywhere in your newspaper or on television reporting.” – You can read this vitally informative expose here.
