Pow Wow – An Autumn Conundrum

November 7, 2015 5:42 pm
You are right that I am really busy these days, but will gladly help, if sporadically for now. I will have more time in the New year (I hope) and should be able to do more if you need me to. I usually have time during the weekends these days and should have more as my lawn and garden will need less tending with the onslaught of winter and wet weather (I hope).

Occupation is a Crime, Resistance is Not

When a peaceful revolution is no longer possible a violent one is the only recourse left. This applies to our country as well.

Dignity or Death

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. We have watched the rise of jewish mafias in this country (while pointing the accusatory finger of guilt at Sicilians) and the dizzying climb to financial power by the likes of Sheldon Adelson, the Koch brothers, Madoff, and uncountably many more, with their criminal empires of fraud, gambling and prostitution, and having reached that pinnacle of absolute fiscal potency, we have impotently watched them destroy the very fiber of our political process and the foundations of our democratic aspirations, while our innocent citizenry strains under the yoke of poverty, homelessness and undeserved despair, as the American dream is wrested from their feeble grasp. We have watched the perpetrators of moral corruption from the likes of Epstein, Dershowitz, Polanski, Woody Allen, and the teeming multitudes that remain hidden from our shocked stare, while they spew their venom into the air we breathe and the water we drink, and rape our children and steal their youth. We have watched their sayanim kill our greatest president and his brother and watched their hand on the bomb levers that brought three soaring towers tumbling down, like the starter's gun for the race to war in the Middle East. We have allowed them to control our media and entertainment and tell us what we should believe and brainwashed us with their demonization of those whom we should hate, while sheltering the most deserving of our hatred by deceit and guile. We have watched, tolerated, and let them live, because we are basically good and generous and they have exploited our feelings of guilt for not preventing a horror that befell them - a tale weaved from whole cloth that doesn't stand up to scientific scrutiny, and one for which they are solely responsible, while ignoring the hundreds of thousands of our kin that died to save them from their self-inflicted fate in a war half way across the world that we had no hand in starting, We have watched as they told us who was "electable" as our leaders, and whom we should shun for their reluctance to stand with them, and allowed brave patriots to fall before the corrupt might of these nocturnal forces. Sanders or Clinton? Tweedledum or Tweedledee? Would you like fries with that? We have paid in taxes with our earnings from the sweat of our brows and the fruit of our toils, so that they could use it to bribe our corrupt officials to help them steal even more from us, while sacrificing our sons and daughters to the grist of war on foreign soil for their cause, with people who had no quarrel with us, losing us all our friends, when, before they came along, we had no enemies in those lands. I cry with tears of grief and rage at my impotency and the absoluteness of a cataclysm in progress that I don't know how to stop. It is destroying me and my ability to think, and an inferno rages in my soul. What started as disgust has now transformed into anger and is fast sliding into unmitigated hatred. Yes, I hate all those who do this and all those who have helped them do it, and my hatred is destroying me while leaving the objects of my hate untouched, unimpaired, and completely unimpeded. Spare me the lecture on the wrongness of hate. Meanwhile, in a land decreed holy, another child is murdered, another Olive tree is uprooted, another piece of land is stolen, and another mother wails to a merciless god that has forsaken her. Judgment Day? Whither justice and the promise of redemption? There will be no peace and haunting nightmares will trouble our sleep. We are damned as we are doomed. No peace, no love, and no milk of human kindness will flow from the city on the hill. Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war. --- A very despondent Cloak and Dagger.

Holy fuck! LOL! I needed that laugh after the hard day today. Fuck 'em all!

A Review of the Reviewer of Max Blumenthal's Book

@Taxi I really love all the original posts that you have been writing recently. It makes it a joy to come here at the end of the day and relax with your juicy literature. I hope that you find the stamina to continue doing so (easy for me to say!) Thanks for such great reads!

Who and What the Heck is Plato's Guns?!

Your blog has all the potential of becoming one of the significant sites on the Internet. I already see trackbacks to your posts on other sites, and the recent surge of members here continues to expand the vibrancy of the site, as noted by the great comments that people have been posting here. Your original articles are what draw me here the most. From your unique perch in the Levant, unobstructed by Zionist filters, you have access to perspectives that we are shielded from. Your writing style is delicious and leaves the mouth watering for more. This combination of unfiltered facts, cogent analysis, wrapped in eminently readable prose is unmatched elsewhere. I do hope that your interest in maintaining it continues. With my own blog, I have experienced first-hand what a drag it can be to keep the site populated with posts on a daily basis and deal with the unexpected events and attacks from detractors and zio forces.

Activist, Heal Thyself

You are probably correct in that assessment. As I said earlier, nobody is perfect, and Phil is most likely a force for good despite his obvious shortcomings.

We already know that unity is the very fuel of a successful movement.
Aye, there's the rub. I would venture to say that most of us are in this "movement" for a diversity of reasons, not all compatible or unifying. Speaking for myself, I am driven by a desire to save my country. That is not to say that I am not moved by the plight of the Palestinians (or the Iranians, or the Iraqis, or the Afghanis, or the Libyans, or the Lebanese, or …), and all the other peoples that my country has wrought havoc on, but that motivation is secondary in priority. Perhaps it is because of my belief that if we can "fix" this country, it will fix the world. Others may have different motivation. I ascribe a presumptive motivation to the MW/JVP Jews as one of self-preservation. They are smarter than their co-tribalists in having recognized the approach of impending doom because of the actions of their compatriots, and that motivates them to draw shaky lines in the sand to create a distinction, while still trying to "save" the tribe, however futile. They are driven by a desire to paint a new narrative, carefully crafted, which makes them the gate keepers that they are. There is, of course, the very strong motivation of the Palestinians themselves, along with their co-sufferers, who are motivated by their desire for liberty, justice, and the search for escape from oppression and the right to call the land of their birth their home - a desire that all of us can identify with and rallies us to their cause. And finally, I am sure that there are genuine and irrational antisemites (although I have yet to see evidence of these) who will rally to any cause for the opportunity to attack Jews. I am probably missing out a few other categories in this "movement". Perhaps it is not so surprising for there to be fissures and conflict within such a disparate group of people, each with their own impetus for being there? --- Cloak And Dagger

The term needs to be abolished.
While I agree that "bigotry" describes the term aptly, and the term is used as a club to keep us from uttering revelatory speech, we can render the term harmless and inert by scoffing at it when directed our way. It is often difficult when the gun is pointed at our head, but if we all agree to mock it everywhere, in person and in print, we do have the power to take away its power. The reason it works is because most people are inherently good and have a positive self-image, and such accusations can tend to make us defensive when such a response is not warranted.
August 16, 2015 4:19 pm
@Taxi - as I have said before, and certainly validated by the large influx of MW refugees to your blog, you have the potential to be what I originally thought MW was intended to be. You are no less a writer than Phil Weiss (who I still believe to be a force for good, though sometimes misguided - nobody is perfect) and in many ways, far more interesting to read. Let's make Plato even more significant.

Does anyone ever see MW or Phil addressing the US Jewish “Community’ problem of I-Firstdom and entitlement?
Can't be done. Such a discussion would threaten the established narrative that accusations of divided loyalties are antisemitic "canards", despite abundant evidence of its existence on almost a daily basis. I call it what it is: TREASON.

Mondoweiss Breaks Silence Over The Alison Weir/JVP Controversy – Or Does It?

August 15, 2015 11:21 pm
You nailed it Sean. They do and say what is necessary to ensure that when the moment of reckoning comes, they will be perceived to have been on the right side of the debate, even though, principally as gate keepers, they have done nothing but perpetuate the existence of Zionism and protected it from criticism by making sure the right lines are drawn and guarded from being crossed. Maybe this is the result of history not learned. Despite having been expelled from 109 countries, they continue to act as before, with the enhancement of a better-tailored public image, but scratch the surface of that, and you have the same ugly pig, and sad to say, history will repeat itself. Should I feel sorry for them as they drown? Should I help them out of the water, or should I push their head under? I kight have chosen one way before, and now I choose the other. As for Mooser, I think his primary job is to keep the Hophmi crowd entertained. It used to be amusing at one point, now it is just irritating.
