Here is what the DNA of many Jewish Israelis is all entwined with, whether academic (sic), politician (sic), businessman/woman (sic), with or without dual USA-Tel Aviv citizenship (sic) – bombing clinics, women, children, developmental disabled, quadriplegics, the blind, wheelchair bound, tinker-tailor-hummus salesman, student, granny, the blind, deaf, bedridden, journalist. That is the legacy of syphilis, the seeders of Native American blankets, the gas chamber designers.
Palestinian homes are imploded hourly, with drone-guided illegality, help from USA military and academic institutions, the rotten smell of the devil coming in to view, oh how we are waiting for Hugo Chavez’s ghost to admonish Bush-Wolfewitz-Friedman-Greenspan-et al, the vaporous stench of the academic kind, the peddler of smoke and mirror economics, the hedge fund dandy, all those shysters and schleps selling the souls of their great-great grandchildren for the weapons of modern slavery, all those IT-App-Flick-of-the-wrist psychopathic non-work tools of suicide-inducing hell that get these people billions tucked away into banks.
These people, emblematic of some slab of meat called Mordechai Kedar, who not only relishes in the killing of Palestinians and the imposition of a life and multi-generational sentence of horror, terror, sanctions, turning off the water, killing the electricity, cutting off the clean medical needles, stopping all the med supplies, screwing with everything the Jewish leaders deem perfect for the collateral and direct damage of their ilk, but this professor, tenured, wants the rape and sodomy of women. Kill the children, we know that, even listening to the National Jewish Radio (NPR), NBC (the Bar Mitzvah station), all the yammering elites with dual citizenship and one quest – to end the world in their Talmud and Torah vengeance.
But all of that isn’t enough punishment for Dr (sic) Mordechai Kedar, an Israeli scholar (sic) of Arabic lit and lecturer (sic) at Bar-Ilan University (sic). He professes in articles and on live TV and radio, that raping Palestinian mothers and sisters is more than an acceptable tactic to finish the genocide of Gaza.
During an interview on the Hakol Diburim national daily talk program of Israel Radio Bet, the interviewer, Yossi Hadar, responded to Kedar’s proposal as a bit off — in the scrambled illogical and tone of Hadar, another rotten soul of the DNA mutation ascribed above: “Sounds bad . . . . We cannot of course take such measures.”
Oh, the Jewish dialogue, the Jewish talk, the Jewish Academic debate, the Jewish Media thing in the ears of the un-journalists – Hadar’s pathetic rejoinder was met by Kedar professing: “It is culture…” and . . . “this is the Middle East. I did not speak about what we are doing or not doing. I am speaking about the reality: the only thing that will deter a suicide bomber – if he knew that if he pulls the trigger, his sister will be raped.”
Oh, he’s a former military intelligence officer!
READ — Kedar says: A terrorist, like those who kidnapped the boys and killed them, the only thing that will deter them, is if they know that either their sister or mother will be raped if they are caught. What can we do? This is the culture that we live in.
READ the rotten university’s response: Bar Ilan University responded to the controversy by defending the academic in comments published by Haaretz. Dr Kedar did not call and does not call to fight terror with anything but legal and moral means, said the university.
Imagine if a scholar, a real one, talked in the classroom about anything on the real side of the Jewish narrative:
Read the scholarship of Israel:
I first heard about the Nakba in the late 1980s, while I was an undergraduate student of philosophy at Hebrew University. This, I believe, is a revealing fact, particularly since, as a teenager, I was a member of Peace Now and was raised in a liberal home. I grew up in the southern city of Be’er-Sheva, which is just a few kilometres from several unrecognised Bedouin villages that, today, are home to thousands of residents who were displaced in 1948. I now know that the vast majority of the Negev’s Bedouin population was not as lucky, and that, in the late 1940s and early 1950s, most Bedouin either fled or were expelled from their ancestral lands to Jordan or Gaza.
How is it possible that a left-leaning Israeli teenager who was living in the Negev during the early 1980s (I graduated from high-school in 1983) had never heard the word “Nakba”?
How, in other words, is collective amnesia engendered?
There are many explanations of how master narratives are created and how they suppress and marginalise competing historical accounts. In addition to the work carried out by state institutions and apparata, this careful erasure also demands the ongoing mobilisation of scholars, novelists and artists – as well as other producers of popular culture.
When I was growing up, the history depicted in Israeli high-school textbooks, as well as the historical narrative promulgated by the mass media (there was only one television channel in Israel at the time, which was government run), was validated by famous novelists and public intellectuals. According to a PhD thesis written by Alon Gan from Tel Aviv University, Amos Oz, for example, interviewed soldiers after the 1967 war and used his editorial prerogative to excise descriptions of abuse in order to produce an image of the moral Israeli combatant.
So this den of snakes academics and administrators, in this bomb-ready Bar Ilan Universit,y is a Jewish religious university hunkered and bunkered in a Tel Aviv suburb. In November 1995, Yigal Amir, a great testament to the Kedar line, as a student at the den of thieves institution mentored by the Kedars of this school, assassinated Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.
This is the sign of the times, no? We have Kim Peterson looking at a David Swanson typical pencil-necked, at the keyboard, ramming pathetic ideas into the Ethernet piece, around the very idea that it’s really Gaza’s fault, and all those potentially-raped mothers, sisters, aunts, nieces, daughters, for their future Kedar predicaments, had it coming because they are attempting to break free of the death by a million cuts, poisoned lives because Israel is sub-human, sick, hateful, limp-wrist and powerfully armed because they are ready for their own apocalypse – all three hundred war-heads pulsating with satellite-guided readiness and plutonium enriched payloads. This is the NEW NORMAL INSANITY OF TRYING TO DEFEND ANYTHING JEWISH, ISRAEL. We know about Nazis setting up the ghetto of Warsaw, and the formula/strategies deployed to clamp down and inflict collateral damage with the goal of eradication, in Poland almost eight decaes ago. But, alas, now, Gaza, for decades, a new ghetto, and those leaders in Israel are flittering with Nazi DNA that has infected the Middle East in the form of Zionism, lite or heavy, left or right, unorthodox or orthodox, green or red! (I received some comments from one reader reflecting the changes here about the ghetto of Poland — not a Polish invention or enterprise, I stand clarified! And, to be honest, this is a bit off-the-cuff, but I will reinforce the role of Jewish collaborators for the German Nazis — one being Abraham Ganwajch, Jewish ghetto rich guy:)
In the ghetto Ganwajch lived a lavish life, collecting hefty sums from others by various means. On the other hand in order to support appearances he helped the poor and the artists; however all of his initiatives became corrupted — for example he set up a hospital with ambulances, but quickly the network became used primarily for smuggling by the Group 13, which also by the time became a racketeering network (officially it was supposed to combat the black market in the ghetto).
After most of the Group 13 was eliminated by the Germans in 1942, Gancwajch reemerged outside the ghetto on the Aryan side in Warsaw, where he and other members of his group, pretending to be Jewish underground fighters, were hunting for Poles hiding or otherwise supporting the Jews. He was also the leader of the infamous Żagiew Gestapo-sponsored Jewish organization. He is also known to have tried to sabotage attempts at the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. The Jewish Combat Organization sentenced him to death but were never able to execute him. His further fate remains unknown to this day; according to one record he was killed together with his family in Pawiak in Warsaw, perhaps around early spring 1943.
Here, a real Jew, a real Hero, a real Mordechai :
The Israeli government is being accused of unlawfully treating the jailed Israeli nuclear whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu by holding him in solitary confinement. Vanunu was initially released from prison in 2004 after serving an eighteen-year sentence for revealing details of Israel’s nuclear weapons program. Israel has barred him from leaving the country and sent him back to jail last month for violating the terms of his parole by having contact with a foreigner. In a statement, Amnesty International said, “[Vanunu] suffered immensely when he was held in solitary confinement for eleven years after his imprisonment in 1986, and to return him to such conditions now is nothing less than cruel, inhuman or degrading.”
The Guardian newspaper has published secret South African documents revealing that Israel offered to sell nuclear warheads to the South Africa apartheid regime. In 1975, South Africa’s defense minister, P.W. Botha, asked Israel’s then-Defense Minister Shimon Peres for nuclear warheads. Peres, who is now Israel’s president, responded by offering warheads “in three sizes.” The South African documents show that the apartheid-era military wanted the nuclear missiles as a deterrent and for potential strikes against neighboring African states. South Africa did not go ahead with the nuclear deal in part because of the cost. The documents were first uncovered by Sasha Polakow-Suransky, author of the new book The Unspoken Alliance: Israel’s Secret Relationship with Apartheid South Africa. The documents provide new evidence that Israel has nuclear weapons despite its policy of “ambiguity” in neither confirming nor denying their existence. May 24, 2010, Democracy Now.
Here, a great piece on this hero, Vanunu: **
In 1986, Mordechai Vanunu took a very courageous moral stand against nuclear weapons. Vanunu exposed Israel’s secret nuclear weapons arsenal to the world after becoming disillusioned with his work as a technician at Dimona Nuclear Research Centre in Israel. The information revealed Israel had hundreds of advanced nuclear warheads (the sixth largest stockpile in the world). Under a policy of nuclear ambiguity, Israel still officially denies it has nuclear weapons, despite Vanunu’s revelations and other widespread evidence to the contrary.
His brave actions led to Vanunu being kidnapped by Israeli Mossad agents in Italy and transported back to Israel where he was charged with espionage and treason and convicted in a secret trial. He was sentenced to 18 years in prison. Vanunu’s abduction was a violation of both Italian and International Law. According to article 9 of the International Convention on Civil and Political Rights, no person shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest or detention, including abduction of a person by agents of one state to another one.
For this ‘crime’ he spent 18 years in jail, with over 11 years of it in solitary confinement in a six metre square cell under constant camera observation. He was held in conditions that Amnesty International describes as, “cruel, inhuman and degrading.”
Vanunu, Out of Prison, But Still Not Free
I am staying in East Jerusalem under occupation, among Christians and Palestinians. I like to meet friends, supporters, talk about my case, everyone is very welcome. My future plan is to continue to do for peace and abolition of Nuclear Weapons – Vanunu.
Vanunu was released from prison in April 2004. At a press conference after his release, Vanunu said that Israel’s Mossad spy agency and Shin Bet, the secret service tried to rob him of his sanity by keeping him in solitary for so long. “You didn’t succeed to break me, you didn’t succeed to make me crazy.” Vanunu said. Vanunu also called for Israel’s nuclear disarmament and for its dismantlement as a Jewish state.
Since his release from jail Vanunu has been living in a room in St. Georges Anglican Cathedral, in East Jerusalem. While Vanunu was let out of jail he still remains unfree. After his release Israeli authorities imposed a strict military supervision order on him, with a number of prohibitions. Under this order Vanunu is banned from meeting journalists, not to have contact with supporters and foreigners (without permission), can’t use mobile phones, his telephone and internet is monitored, not to approach foreign embassies or consulates, nor visit ports or airports, not come within 500 metres of any international border crossing or move address without informing the police.
Vanunu is also subject to continuous police surveillance, his internal movements are confined to Jerusalem and he is forbidden to leave Israel. These curbs are renewed every 12 months. These Israeli restrictions deny Vanunu’s rights to freedom of expression, movement and association. Amnesty International said that as Vanunu has served his full sentence, these limitations are a breach of international law. Vanunu has been questioned, arrested, detained, put under house arrest, given community sentence and his residence searched several times since 2004 for breaching these rigid regulations.
Back to my last post, where I went into how a friend, who is Jewish, who loves drones, who thinks teachers SHOULD be replaced by robots, who thinks ALL things should be trademarked, and all LAWYERS should have the right to suck the blood out of anyone, anyone, who might be doing some copyright infringement, how he despises anyone questioning Israel, the Zionists, the Whiskey Pete white phosphorus of the Jewish Military Might, anyone who might doubt the truth coming from the most powerful (thanks to Zionists here, Zionists there, and US taxpayers everywhere) murdering machine in the Middle East — ahh, but it’s okay to question the police brutality of US of A, or the other Zionist-Nazi like values of the US of AIPAC. This person’s continence is supposedly hip, in-the-know, and tied to some bizarre agnotology, some automatic stupidity when it comes to his second-first-only country’s (sic) history (sic). I am finding many high-tech libertarian types to be fascist, and bigots. Not that they strike a strong figure or could do a crummy thing in the physical realm. Many guys like this fellow are blowhards, effete, tied to the money-money-money game, making money doing, well, nothing . . . or doing bad for the rest of us. Charge-charge-charge $400 an hour to screw fellow human beings.
Let’s look at another Jew, a hero, one not tied to creating drones to watch mother’s and father’s windows, one not tied to suing every human on earth for using a keystroke or font patented to some crummy lawyers: **
By all accounts, Swartz is known as a pioneering mind of the Internet freedom movement. Through his own description of events during Reddit’s acquisition, it was obvious that Swartz’s involvement stemmed from a desire to expand upon principles of open access to information and reform to higher education, rather than a predisposition to monetize what was fast becoming a lucrative source of referral traffic for online publishing. This ideology was further outlined by his “Guerrilla Open Access Manifesto,” published in 2008, which sets out Swartz’s philosophy on the open access movement.
Scanning entire libraries but only allowing the folks at Google to read them? Providing scientific articles to those at elite universities in the First World, but not to children in the Global South? It’s outrageous and unacceptable. Swartz
It’s difficult to say at this point how Aaron’s legal situation affected his decision to take his own life. Over the years, he made candid admissions of personal battles with depression and he made no secret of his anxiety over the case.
“Go outside and get some fresh air or cuddle with a loved one and you don’t feel any better, only more upset at being unable to feel the joy that everyone else seems to feel. Everything gets colored by the sadness,” he wrote in 2007. When things get worse, “you feel as if streaks of pain are running through your head, you thrash your body, you search for some escape but find none. And this is one of the more moderate forms.”
In a blog post on Saturday, Swartz’s family and his partner, Taren Stinebricker-Kaufmann, wrote, “Aaron’s death is not simply a personal tragedy. It is the product of a criminal justice system rife with intimidation and prosecutorial overreach. Decisions made by officials in the Massachusetts U.S. Attorney’s office and at MIT contributed to his death. The US Attorney’s office pursued an exceptionally harsh array of charges, carrying potentially over 30 years in prison, to punish an alleged crime that had no victims. Meanwhile, unlike JSTOR, MIT refused to stand up for Aaron and its own community’s most cherished principles.”
One thing is patently clear: the open Internet is heartbroken. Few have been able to make sense of the prosecution’s relentless pursuit of Swartz. He had tweaked the government before, during his efforts in 2008 to build a system that would provide Americans with free access to documents related to federal case-law (the current system charges 10 cents per page), a comendable effort that earned him an FBI investigation, though charges were never filed. (A version of the project lives at theinfo.org.) His affiliation with hackers in Cambridge may have made Swartz a person of interest for the authorities eager to convict Bradley Manning, who once visited an MIT hackerspace.
Amazing, how disconnected most Jews in this country are, tied to the lies of their fathers and the lies of their own blatant stupidity when it comes to history. Read on. This guy emails me about an article I sent about Elbit and another Jewish-Zionist-Nazi company working with military thugs in Latin America, working with the World Bank, the CocaCola and Every-Tom-Dick-and-Harry-Purveyors-of-Toxins-Mining-Guns-Germs-Banking-into-Sadism scum.
I guess I should have expected this from you. Not many people challenge you and have the ability to show how you are wrong. But, it is truly surprising how someone who prides himself on his great intelligence does not have any concept of how sending me that article is completely different than our conversations?
Are you really unaware that Hamas & the Palestinians would kill me and my children because of our ancestors from two generations back? Does this make sense?
Can you imagine the US response if Mexico was shooting over 100 missiles per day at cities in Texas? Besides a fence, the US would probably “nuke-em”.
Of course, this is an EMAIL. In all the time we spent together, he could have never said such a bigoted, retrograde, stupid thing without some smack-down intellectually, and, well, not physically, because this man is yet another limp wrist mean man with no balls.
I think Israel has every right to use any power at its disposal to stop people blowing themselves up in shopping malls and having missiles shot at civilians every day. Any country would. And …you are old enough to remember that there were multiple wars to destroy Israel by almost all their neighboring countries and the Olympics when Palestinians started the modern road down the path of killing civilians. How Israel has become the “bad guy” in your mind shows an incredible ability to block out information that does not “fit the picture that you are creating.” Besides “facts” that are clearly in support of Israel defending itself against terrorism, remember, you are asking me to support the very people who want to kill my children. Would you do the same if it was your children?
Here, again, the fault of the DNA, some tripwire in the brains of these Jews who support an Obama or that warped Clinton team. Warped lovers of Woody Allen, lovers of mainstream mush, no head on their shoulders for intellectual discourse, and, well, haters of people of color. Killers of his children, these mean fascists, bankers, haters of the poor, lovers of keeping the poor all riled up and confused in their hornets’ nest of their kind – prosecutors, actuaries, insurance heists, medical malpractice, intellectual malfeasance, etc., etc.
This fellow creates death, creates the death of jobs, the death of lively, good, humorous, face-to-face work. He is a black widow spider, the tiny male, one job on its mind before death by mother-ship Israel.
When my wife tried to explain this to your wife, instead of attempting to understand, you have the audacity to chide me with “shame”? Your attitude of superiority and inability to listen are truly astounding and probably at the core of your failure at work.
Oh, the hypocrites, the delusionals. Time and time again this fellow, out of work, told me he felt precarious in a time of ageism, his 62 years belying a fear of the youth, fear of not being accepted. Funny, my failure at work is not a failure indeed, since I have been working many jobs for many years consistently, and, well, I just won a few journalism awards, and, as these money changers see, writing, poetry, the whole nine yards, including working with youth and adults, substitute teaching, college teaching, well, this is the value this human nematode places on REAL work while he scurries about to make money on NOTHING.
Oh, these fragile but mean and collectively dangerous fellows who call themselves Jews but are not religious or inspired; who call science the charm of all living folk, but who spit in the eye of history, journalism, truths; who have some fallen crime of kibitzing in someone else’s desert but who whines about a few dogs locked up in the South by perpetrators of dog breeding.
This guy’s skin is onion skin on one hand, taking offense at David Zirin discussing the Orwellian crap of Israel, and then his own illegal thinking and acting, his rape the mother of Palestine, or bomb the Mexicans, or whatever his mind is in that warped state of nothingness, not knowing, fearing, the mythology of a chosen (sic) people.
The game of the yammering Zionist, the light-weight one, no military experience, no real experience, but one tied to drinks, restaurants, meetings with lipless men and women who want to control the beams and the trajectories and the living corpuscles of all humans through their fining, taxing, gouging, levying, add-on, fee-fee-fee way of seeing the world as one giant money exchange bank.
The fault is all yours. We both would have been willing to talk on the topic. But your (sic) arrogant and crass over and over again… like: I see more Israeli crap continued to show insensitivity and a plain lack of social insight. Imagine us talking that way to Palestinian friends. The choice of words is inflammatory. You would recognize them as inflammatory if you received them.
In the end this was, besides the basics of a friendship, about social grace…of which you have very little. Too bad, we could have helped you understand the spokes you are missing and actually taught you something.
The last word, sort of, with his morbid and facile thinking, that somehow only non-Jewish-Israel topics are on limits, while the rest of the Middle East and USA and Western Policy burns people, burns, burns, burns. Friendships where you do not discuss anything other than food, music, the crime of making money patenting life, patenting simple breathing, patenting living. This is the reality of not just Jews, and from this perspective, his own identity sinks him into his own morass where he once hoped to take me?
I learned nothing from this fellow because he is a fascist, a hater, someone who would drop a million nukes on babies, or sees the IDF or any number of warped Israeli identity groups prime and entitled to rape the land, the world, the air, the water, and, well, like this academic, he might see this Kedar as a kindred spirit, kindred Zionist, kindred Jew. A person who has facilitated in his mind the war of the world as deemed necessary by a small cabal of folks — economic-technocrats, with science in their blood, and the dry, spiritless respiration of the money counter, money grubber. Funny how these shallow fellows can wrest control of a whole lot of power, a whole lot of lethal power through techno-IT-Economic-Military complex — with the drones and the easy surveillance software and hardware for all life, for a fee, some blackmailing fees, anything, including the patents, the inside trading with despotic governments and the deadliest kind, USA-EU-Nippon . . . even debtors prison, these guys make easy money, find easy marks. This Zionist who thinks my own precarity as a professor, PT, non-tenured, or on the job market with writing skills, awards and 57 years rolled under my skin, that those facts plus my anti-Nazi/anti-Zionist/anti-Capitalist bent all add up to my struggle in this “labor market” . . . a guy who thinks anything scrapping away the soul for a penny or a trillion, works for humanity, and the rest of us poor schlubs, well, we reap the shit of that market because we dare speak against Israel!
