JTA article, fresh off the web:
"Israel will always have a friend in the city of the angels," said Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa as he kicked off the annual AIPAC policy conference Sunday morning.
That's right, grovel.
Villaraigosa said Israel's struggle in the Middle East echoes his own Hispanic community's "struggle for civil rights" and said that when it comes to the Jewish state, "my roots run deep" -- recounting visiting his Jewish neighbors while growing up in East Los Angeles.
Is this a joke?
This idiot (the mayor of LA) is saying that the struggle of Israel is comparable to his own Hispanic (shouldn't it be Latino? I don't see Spaniards around in America but anyway, pet peeve) struggle for civil rights.
My mind is blown.
Israel's struggle in the Middle East - the struggle to segregate the Jewish people from the Arab neighbors, the struggle to lock the Arabs in ghettoes and not allow food, medicines, concrete to rebuild bombed out and destroyed houses in the last Israeli bombing massacre, is the same as the civil rights struggle in the USofA?
The struggle to steal all the good land for the white people from the brown niggers, and if the niggers protest too much - shoot them, arrest them, roll over them with a bulldozer....
Yes, the struggle for Israel is EXACTLY like the civil rights struggle in the USofA.
Hey... Villagrosa... yes, you, moron...
Do you realize that the people you are speaking to are the supporters of the equivalent of the deep south racists in the 1960's?
You know, the people who segregated blacks (and your people, Latinos) away from whites, who upheld racist, unequal laws, who used attack dogs to attack protesters, who shot unarmed protesters (shot to kill), who arrested the civil rights leaders.
Hey... Latino man... do you realize that people with exactly like yours skin color are called niggers, shot at, discriminated against, their houses stolen by the government, destroyed, their farms destroyed, and if they get too uppity the brown niggers (Palestinians, who look very much like you) are arrested/shot/beat up - in Israel?
You are not too stupid to know that, right?
So how exactly is Israel's struggle to be the last racist country on Earth mirroring the struggle for civil rights in the USofA?
"My roots run deep" -- recounting visiting his Jewish neighbors while growing up in East Los Angeles.
Visiting your neighbors, who happen to be Jewish, allows you to claim that your roots run deep?
What... the fuck does that mean?
If you gonna grovel, and prostrate yourself and be a slave to the most powerful lobby in America, at least make sense!
Hell, go to the AIPAC site and see the fucking video of this pitiful, groveling man.
I admit I did not see the whole of this creature's speech - when he started spewing the "democracy and struggle for justice in Israel mirrors my own communities' struggle for civil rights" I could take no more of the hipocrisy of this minor apparatchik, groveling, sniveling, all for his place at the pigs' trough.
More funny stuff
Prosecutors moved Friday to dismiss all charges against Steven Rosen and Keith Weissman, former members of AIPAC, but an ethics cloud still hangs over Harman. She chairs the Homeland Security panel’s intelligence subcommittee.
AIPAC has emphasized that the leaking of secrets had no link to their organization.
And the recent controversy has not caused Harman to shy away from the powerful pro-Israel lobbying group.
She is scheduled to participate at the three-day conference during a Sunday morning panel discussion with former CIA director James Woolsey.
So, an agent of influence, caught red handed, on tape proving her criminal activity (the eavesdrop is proof of the crime) is meeting with a former CIA director, James Woolsey, the guy who led America into Iraq.
Again, in case you truly are too blind to see it, Iraq war has no benefit whatsoever for the United States (other than the private contractors like Cheney's Halliburton and others enriching themselves with our tax money - but I said benefit to the country, not the thieves in charge).
Support for Israel is NOT in American interest - just ask yourself what does America get, really, for the billions it gives Israel.
But, lets get back to the meeting of Harman (in my opinion, a traitor caught in the act of betraying this country) with ex CIA chief Woolsey (traitor?).
Wait - how dare I call him a traitor?
Granted, Harman is, as the whole taped conversation between her and the Israeli operative proves (except to our media, and of course the house of treason, otherwise known as Congress).
But Woolsey - the former chief of the CIA?
HuffPo from 2006:
Booz Allen Vice President R. James Woolsey, former Director of Central Intelligence during the Clinton administration, still has his security clearance.
Woolsey helped enable Chalabi, his intel chief, the Iraqi National Congress operation, and the war against Saddam by being the first on national television on September 11, 2001 to allege a connection between the 9/11 terrorist attacks and Saddam Hussein. Woolsey failed to disclose on TV when making these comments that he was not only a pundit commentator on the attacks -- but was also Ahmed Chalabi's attorney.
I recently attended the annual dinner of the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (where I was treated quite well and with great courtesy I should add) and saw Woolsey at the dinner at the Army-Navy Club.
it is also wrong for our former Director of Central Intelligence to be advocating the release of an individual who undermined our national interests and who gave America's most closely held secrets to another government [that would be Jonathan Pollard, a spy for Israel -AG]. Woolsey's loyalties seem increasingly conflicted -- just as they were when he was serving as a consigliere for Ahmed Chalabi & Co.
Woolsey's security clearance should be suspended.
So, Mr. (then) CIA actively pushed America into the war in Iraq, trying very hard to somehow link 9/11 to Iraq using that CIA agent Chalabi's testimony (i.e. paid for lies) and then the ex-chief of the CIA was actively campaigning for the release of a caught enemy spy.
Do you really want to think this through?
Thinking on this is very dangerous indeed and can be fatal to your career, if not you personally.
Consider this: two AIPAC staffers who were filmed, witnessed and seen by tens of FBI agents, passing top secret Pentagon documents to Israeli citizen/spy handler, are not in jail - more, the government has just (a day ago) dropped its case against them.
Because the two spies caught in the act defense was so successful.
The defense: everybody does this - passes top secret documents to the Israelis.
Witness the case of the Office of Special Plans, which I have profiled on my blog before.
The defense, such as it is ("Everybody's spying for Israel anyway, what's the big deal?"), is true, as evidenced in a key paragraph in the Guardian's article:
The OSP was an open and largely unfiltered conduit to the White House not only for the Iraqi opposition. It also forged close ties to a parallel, ad hoc intelligence operation inside Ariel Sharon's office in Israel specifically to bypass Mossad and provide the Bush administration with more alarmist reports on Saddam's Iraq than Mossad was prepared to authorise.
"None of the Israelis who came were cleared into the Pentagon through normal channels," said one source familiar with the visits. Instead, they were waved in on Mr Feith's authority without having to fill in the usual forms.
The Israelis were waved into the Pentagon, because an agent of influence (right? it's obvious now, isn't it?) Douglas Feith, was the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy for United States President George W. Bush from July 2001 until August 2005.
But adding two and two together, and thinking to the logical conclusion that there are some US officials (most of them of the Jewish faith - Harman is Jewish, and Mr. Feith is also - surprise!), is forbidden.
Thinking along those lines leads one to believe that certain American officials, in highly placed positions in the American system, are actively working to further Israel's goals.
That these officials cooperate with pro Israel organizations of all kinds, to further Israeli sway over our system of "democracy".
That the directives for American policy come, even if indirectly, and as a form of persuasion instead of orders (but sometimes directly, when Israeli operatives meet with or discuss topics on the phone with American elite) from Tel Aviv.
The Obama Administration will put forth new peace initiatives only if Israel wants it to, said Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman in his first comprehensive interview on foreign policy since taking office.
“Believe me, America accepts all our decisions,” Lieberman told the Russian daily Moskovskiy Komosolets.
This is Avigdor Lieberman, just a few days ago, on May 24 2009.
Mr. Lieberman (hmmm, this name sounds familiar) is the current Israeli Foreign Minister.
Lets repeat what he said here, in case you get lost and confused in the torrent of my wordiness:
“Believe me, America accepts all our decisions.”
Looking at the facts - two spies caught on film - innocent, a Congresswoman caught on tape - innocent, and Mr. Avigdor Lieberman's statement leads one to very unsettling conclusions.
But of course, those facts - taken alongside the AIPAC conference, during which both republicans and democrats (with certain proud exceptions - thank you, Ron Paul and Kucinich and a few others) prostrate themselves as they try to outbid themselves in fealty to their masters - well...
They lead one to actually believe in the grand Jewish conspiracy, which leads one to question one's sanity.
After all, it's right there in the open, and so many people see it, surely our media would report it?
Somebody in the media would report it to us, right?!
Now, I know I am going crazy... mad... insane...
Because since it is so blatantly in the open - I mean, Jane Harman is speaking at the AIPAC conference, happening now, both of them caught red handed doing subversive activities and both, of course, innocent and more powerful than ever... what more do you people need to get off your butts, and make some calls?
To your congressmen, women, local politicians.
Make some calls.
It won't help - hell, it will probably get you on the "no-fly" list, if not get you charged with the new "hate crimes" legislation.
But it will make you feel more at peace.
I realize that American Idol and Dancing with the Stars is very important to your lives, but fuck's sake, do the sight of American soldiers in VA hospitals, without arms, legs, eyes - it doesn't move you?!
Oh right - those things are not shown on TV...
But what about the bodies of our boys and girls, in flag draped coffins.
Oh wait - those are not shown on TV, exactly like it was during the bush years..
And it is dangerous to speak up against our overlords, it is too late - it is better to do nothing, know your place in the new world order, shut up, do your 8-6, or perhaps 7:30 to 6:30.
It is safer that way.
You might feel a pang of guilt, a quiet sense of unease as America slides closer to the abyss while the elites make more and more money and you just got laid off, your mom is sick and the insurance, if you even have it, is NOT paying you money because it is not covered, there are administrative delays... while the calls at midnight from collectors who scream at you have no delays and are like clockwork on the dot...
OK, so now, per the still active plan, we are going to bomb Iran, the economy will become even worse as the elites get your tax money (TARP - Tax Assistance for Rich People), but remember - if you speak up or do something, the situation for you personally will become much, much worse.
Know your place.
Of course, you will walk around, looking at your fellow citizens, in rapture as they discuss the latest baseball game, as clueless idiots, as uninformed morons, as... sheep.
And that is when you KNOW that you are crazy.
It is very interesting to observe this moment in others, in real time.
For one of my favorite bloggers has just hit that moment.
Mr. Silverstein's article, 'Jewish Leader Colludes With Israeli Embassy in Monitoring House Member ‘Hostile’ to Israel':
If you’re like me, you find Sy Hersh a bracing, but alarmist and perhaps hyperbole-prone analyst of U.S. policy. I feel likewise about those who propound theories about Israeli penetration of U.S. political, military and security circles. But lately, I’m changing my tune on this.
But lately, I’m changing my tune on this.
Which means that Mr. Silverstein has joined the crazies, the "troofers", the loony conspiracy nutters.
He has officially become crazy.
Because of course there is no conspiracy of Jewish Americans placed in high positions actively fulfilling Israel's goals.
The war in Iraq is NOT because pro Israel operatives in American government lied, cheated, and manufactured evidence for it and whipped up mass hysteria, using 9/11 as a pretext.
The Office of Special Plans, run by Douglas Feith, allowing Israeli agents to come into the Pentagon at will, with manufactured evidence which even Mossad laughed at, is ENTIRELY NORMAL in a democratic country.
Spies caught red handed on film, on tape, with tens, hundreds of FBI witnesses observing them in real time, are of course INNOCENT - and anybody who thinks otherwise is a dirty anti-semite.
To see exactly how crazy Mr. Silverstein is, please read his two crazy, insane ramblings here:
Jewish Leader Colludes With Israeli Embassy in Monitoring House Member ‘Hostile’ to Israel
Israeli Intelligence Operations Target U.S. Congressional Leaders
Like I said, the man is insane.
I mean really, he alleges (haha) a Jewish conspiracy to control America.
Why, this is like the Elders of Zion blueprint - I mean, just nuttiness.
Better let sleeping dogs lie.
