Construction of a New World Order for the 21st Century Has Begun

by Taxi

Now that Russian military operations against ISIS in Syria are well underway, with much success already scored and final victory is but certain, Russia launches forth into an impeccably timed diplomatic offensive that seeks to establish a foundation for a new world order for the 21st century.

As current events fast unfold, we are observing Putin’s masterful use of both hard power and soft power to achieve this highly complex and dangerous restructuring.

Plato’s Pow Wow – “I Read The News Today, Oh Boy”

by Taxi

What a load of rubbish news headlines today.  Regurgitation of inconsequential headlines or endless tired propaganda – both sides of the aisle.  Of course there’s much going on behind the scenes  – much to do with Russia in the middle east etc, but no original analysis by any respected or controversial journalist has been penned or published in the past 24 hours.  Some days it’s overwhelming how much good reads are out there – but not today, no sirree not today.

Knifing Settlers in Broad Daylight

by Taxi

It is a beautiful autumn morning in the Holy Land.  So magically beautiful in fact that a Palestinian teenage girl walking to school and daydreaming of romance would be forgiven for forgetting, just for a few seconds, the ugly occupation breathing death down on her at every street corner she takes.

She has used this same route for years now – she can walk it blindfolded.  She has learned the rich history of her ancestors and the deadly substance of the occupier on this very same route.  Often when she’s walked it, she’s experienced sickening palpitations and involuntary fist-clenching to encounter the occupier enemy at close range, be they armed and in uniform, or in civilian clothing with weapons possibly concealed.  She has many times seen hate and murder in their eyes as she nervously stepped past them.  This is her daily trail of fear and loathing and she affectionately calls it ‘my little redemption road’.

Russia Destroys The Greater Israel Dream

by Taxi

The grand plan was going swimmingly.  The concept of endless wars for Greater Israel was working and producing impressive results.  Opportunistically, through aggravation of war after war, chunk by chunk of Arab land was usurped and the map of Greater Israel was slowly materializing.  No matter the unstable chaos surrounding the State of Israel for the past seven decades, and no matter the undying Palestinian resistance and the violent Intifadas that erupted internally, the Zionist dream of Greater Israel remained consistently intact and was progressing unabated and unchallenged by anyone.

But dreams, by their diaphanous nature are easily interruptible – can easily turn into sudden nightmares.  Indeed, dreams do, in the blink of an eye, simply end.

Occupation is a Crime, Resistance is Not

by Taxi

Stonethrower

There is so much silly propaganda out there right now on Palestine and Syria that I honestly can’t be bothered to post up any of it.  It’s all the same tired spin too.

‘Palestinians are terrorists terrorizing the poor Israeli Jews who just want to live in peace and harmony with their neighbors’ –  is basically a propaganda theme taken up by the MSM.  Multiple stories of Israeli ‘personal’ experiences of “Palestinian terrorism” are getting published all over the place too (oh man, the tedium!).

Plato’s Soap Box: America is Occupied

by Cloak And Dagger

Judgment Day. Is this it?

We in the west have wrought this current state of mayhem by aiding and abetting the criminals in Israel and continuing to do so despite our complete awareness of what we are helping them inflict on innocents struggling to survive in the world’s largest prison, bereft of food, clothing, and shelter – something we would not deny a stray dog.

We have tolerated the Israel-firsters in our country and allowed them to roam free on our streets while watching them take down our republic, brick by bloody brick. We have tolerated the Jewish 5th column in our government, media, finance, academia, and pretty much all seats of power and influence (yeah, call that a canard, I dare ya!) to the detriment of this once-great nation.

Dignity or Death

by Taxi

An Israeli Jew, seeing a brown-skinned man walking down his street and assuming him to be Palestinian: lunged forth and stabbed him in a revenge attack – only to discover that the man he critically injured was actually Jewish.  Such is the level of ethnic paranoia permeating the Israeli psyche today.

Reciprocal stabbings between Palestinians and Zionist Israelis have been erupting on the streets of towns and cities and increasing in frequency and violence as the days pass.  The Zionist Israeli media is carrying forth Netanyahu’s propaganda message to his people:  ‘Arabs are attacking us with knives on the streets and we have the right to defend ourselves’.  Other loon Israeli media outlets are warning that the Palestinian stabbers are Daesh announcing their arrival into Israel.  The politics of fear is king in the holy land today.

Shake, Rattle and Intifada

by Taxi

Against their leaders and against their occupier.  Against the Grim Reaper and a grimmer, dimmer future.  Against deception, oppression, injustice and submission.  Against everyone and everything that humiliates them, Palestinian youth en mass have taken to the streets of the West Bank, Jerusalem and Gaza for five days in a row today – a passion for freedom and an anger at the poverty of their life exploding in their bony chests.  Masked youth, stone in hand, stones stuffed in denim pockets, they duck behind walls and corners and cars, taking turn to leap balletic: throwing rocks with all their might at what can only be described as platoons of armed Israeli robots.

Olive Picking in the Levant is a Form of Resistance

by Taxi

It’s that time of the year when rural Levant populations rush to their olive groves to pick the year’s harvest: generally used for pressing olive oil, pickling olives, and for making olive-based soap and beautification salves.

The timing of olive picking  is crucial:  it must take place after the second autumn rains – then waiting for two days thereafter for the soil to dry a little.  Picking olives any later than that will embitter the flavor and ruin the benefits of the harvest.  As you can imagine, this causes an insane rush to pick literally millions of trees in the region, with everyone working to a deadline.  This tradition has been going on for thousands of years –  even way before the enigmatic Abraham was born.  Here in the south of the Lebanon, the pickers are mostly local villagers joined by Syrian refugees who have taken refuge in sleepy villages.

Plato’s Pow Wow

by Taxi

Did the headline get your attention?  Well good cuz I’d like to WELCOME EVERYBODY  to Plato’s first Pow Wow!

Every so often, I will open a ‘Pow Wow’ thread for life’s general profundities, ridiculous normalities and of course, its splendid grotesques.  A so-called ‘open thread’ where, well, where anyone (except for you, Chas) can talk about anything they want.  Use the comment section like a community room to share Palestine or non-Palestine topics or personal stories.  Anything goes.  But it’s best that you come here chilled in the brain, warm in the fingertips and armed with either a Pow or a Wow factor.

Propaganda Never Sleeps

by Taxi

 
Russia is in Syria to stay until the job of ISIS-cleansing from Syria and Iraq is finished with.

The ‘West’ in practice has surrendered to this reality, but they’re such bastard sore losers that they won’t switch off their propaganda machines and paid minions for even a second.  Of late, the media has had a stream of continuous misinformation articles against the Russia-Iraq-Iran-Syria security plan that they (the West) have actually already publicly agreed is the correct direction for Russia to take in resolving the ISIS crisis in the Levant.  Talk about talking from both sides of mouth!
