Iraq Nightmare

Of all the lies that the neocons came up with to get the U.S. to invade Iraq, the one that most angers me was Bernard Lewis’s lie that Iraq just needed a little nudge in order to unleash the popular surge for democracy and republican government.

Lewis … argues that Arabs have a long history of consensus government, if not democracy, and that a modicum of outside force should be sufficient to democratize the area—a view that runs counter to the huge cultural differences between the Middle East and the West that stem ultimately from very different evolutionary pressures. (see here, p. 50)

I agree that the WMD lie created and promoted mainly by Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith and Abraham Shulsky was critical. But Bernard Lewis deserves a special place in academic hell because he used his position as an elite academic to influence policy on behalf of his ethnic brethren in Israel and his close friends in the Likud government.

I assumed that Iraq would implode quite quickly after the U.S. left, but the pace is breathtaking. The LATimes report (“Iraq bombings kill 60, revive old fears“) shows that nothing has changed after 8-1/2 years of occupation, over 4400 U.S. armed forces dead and almost 32000 wounded, and over 100,000 Iraqis dead (see here). The Times article shows that the fundamental social structure hasn’t changed. The country remains divided along ethnic and religious lines.

The scenes of devastation were all too familiar after more than a dozen explosions ripped through the Iraqi capital Thursday, killing at least 60 people and injuring nearly 200, just days after the last U.S. troops left the country.

The attacks, some of the worst in Iraq this year, came in the midst of a political standoff between the country’s main Shiite Muslim and Sunni Arab factions. The dispute threatens to unravel a U.S.-backed power-sharing government, and is spreading anxiety over the prospect of a return to the sectarian bloodletting that devastated the country in recent years.

All the violence has not changed the basic fact that Iraq, like every other Arab culture, is a low-trust society:

“This crisis really is caused because there is pervasive distrust and an absence of institutions that can carry this kind of transition,” said Joost Hiltermann, an Iraq expert at the International Crisis Group. Prime Minister Nouri Maliki, a Shiite, has never trusted the Sunni politicians with whom he has been forced to share power, Hiltermann said.

Western societies have uniquely been high-trust societies, a point made, e.g., by Francis Fukuyama and a basic corollary of the psychology of Western individualism (see here, p. 27ff). The problem is that we think that everyone is “just like us”—willing and able to set up individualist societies with democratic and republican institutions. As Ian Morris writes in his Why the West Rules—For Now, people are pretty much the same the world over (see Brenton Sanderson’s review).We want to believe this so badly that it was easy to pull off the big lie. It’s the foundational lie of multi-culturalism. Of course, the same goes for IQ. We are supposed to ignore the findings that the average IQ in Iraq is around 87.

The Sunnis want more autonomy under the Shiite government, and the Kurds will doubtless continue their drive for autonomy. Iraq will be fractionated, politically weakened where the only solution is a heavy-handed dictatorship a la Saddam Hussein, or partition into three states.

In the ideal neocon world, the U. S. would have remained in Iraq indefinitely. Since that didn’t happen, they are doubtless not unhappy to see Iraq’s current turmoil—except that it will be more difficult next time to sell attacks on Israel’s enemies as a crusade for democracy.

I suspect that the neocon strategy will now be to blame the Obama administration for premature evacuation and use this as a trump card in the current campaign for a war against Iran. Already, “Republican leaders have sharply criticized President Obama for not trying harder to keep a U.S. military presence in Iraq. Sen. John McCain of Arizona said on CBS television Thursday that Iraq was ‘unraveling tragically.’ ‘We are paying a very heavy price in Baghdad because of our failure to have a residual force there.’”

It is unclear what price we are paying, since it’s unclear what threat Iraq poses or ever posed to the U.S. But it is certainly the case that this will be an issue in presidential politics in the months ahead. One can imagine the Obama administration being more willing to do the bidding of the Israel Lobby on Iran in order to counter the inevitable charges that he “lost Iraq.”

In a sane society, the neocons would have been executed for high treason for their involvement in the death and maiming of thousands of U.S. citizens under false pretenses, not to mention the trillion dollar price tag. In the U.S., they are preparing for their next war.

And the Israel Lobby has their back. Any intimation of Jewish influence related to Israel policy remains off limits. Thomas Friedman recently had the temerity to write, “I sure hope that Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, understands that the standing ovation he got in Congress this year was not for his politics. That ovation was bought and paid for by the Israel lobby.” But it wasn’t long before he mollified his remarks and said he didn’t subscribe to any “grand conspiracy theories.”

I don’t subscribe to any grand conspiracy theories either. It’s all out in the open. In your face. Just don’t say so in public.

    Here’s an article on how “Maliki and Iran Outsmarted the US on Troop Withdrawal” (so much for the clever neo-cons!):

    http://original.antiwar.com/porter/2011/12/16/how-maliki-and-iran-outsmarted-the-us-on-troop-withdrawal/

    The US was out maneuvered by Iranians and their buddies in Iraq. Here’s an interview on the subject, for those who find this interesting:

    http://antiwar.com/radio/2011/12/21/gareth-porter-138/

    It’s an interesting outcome. The neo-cons, seems to me, are not so clever in as much as they have extreme devotion (emotional intensity) to their cause. Their aggression blinds sensible strategic thinking. An Iraq under control of Iran is quite literally a future nightmare for Israel. Now they want Iran, but that’s a much bigger nut to crack, especially given the fact that Russia and China will support Iran as a way to punch America in the face.

    I think we’re headed for disaster.

    Another good piece from Dr. MacDonald. The only question I would have would relate to the issue of “high-trust” in the West. Would you agree that “high-trust”, while bringing us great cultural advantages, is also ultimately our achilles heel. Is it this flaw in our make-up which means that the majority tend to imbibe, without doubt, that which is presented to them by the media?

    This is off topic, but I would everyone to take a look at an article in the Jewish Chronicle, written by Jewish Professor Geoffrey Alderman, in which he attacks Christ and Christmas with an appalling ferocity. It is not the first time this man has written pieces like this. A quick google search for “Geoffrey Alderman Christmas” will bring up all you need to see. In one instance he bemoans having to “put up” with Christmas. What ingratitude towards Britain, a country which sheltered his immigrant ancestors without malice! His arrogance and ungenerous attitude is breathtaking. In addition, I would draw attention to his claim that Christ brought only bad things to the Jews. To this I would say – did not anti-Semitism exist before Christ? And for much the same reasons? Was not one of the key legacies of Christ to raise the status of the Jews from an obscure oriental sect to that of international fame? Without being the people who begot Christ, would they have been tolerated in Europe as they were for centuries? The Jewish People – A Nation Blinded By Hate.

    Someone who has followed Dr. Bernard Lewis’s portrayal as America’s top-most ‘Orientalist’ – would agree with Dr. Edward Said that the man is as much a fake as the biblical promise of holy Land to the Jews. Lewis is as much as an Israeli propagandist as is his student Dr. Daniel Pipes.

    Iraq war was conceived by the Zioncon authers of PNAC for Benji Netanyahu to further breakup the Muslim East on tribal, sectarian and national basis – so that these small Muslim nation-states will always remain at the mercy of the Zionist entity.

    This is the very reason, US-Israel is affraid of democracy in the Muslim world, because, every time the public is given the opportunity – it has brought Islamists into power, who’re by large anti-Israel. We saw it in Iran, Turkey, Lebanon and now in Iraq.

    Former British foreign secretary, Lord David Owen, admitted in daily Mirror that the Islamic Republic has come out as the winner and the most powerful country in the region – thanks to illegal war on Iraq.

    I am very tired of the obsession with conspiracy. I do not care a fig if Jews meet once a week to plot our downfall or if it is merely the result of them being themselves. Do black folks, who move in to a formerly neat neighborhood, plan and plot to turn it into an ugly, filthy, crime infested, dangerous horror or is this simply the cumulative effect of individual actions? Does it matter? The results are the same.
    The real question for me is that I sense an increased arrogance in Jewish public figures. Is this because they are so confident of the hold they have or is it that they cannot help themselves?

    A great contribution was made to Iraqi disunity by the adoption of an electoral system designed to divide rather than unite. Disdaining the American system of first past the post voting a proportional mechanism was devised that encouraged sectarian parties with a party list controlled by a leader.

    In the American/British way every candidate has to consider the wishes of all his constituents. This drives a candidate to cover all bases. In lopsided districts a small minority becomes the swing vote and often elects the most moderate of the majority. In a party list system the sole party appeal is to a Shia, Sunni or Kurdish base. No candidate appeals to the other. It is divisive by design.

    When the new constitution was being written America was dictating. So who was picked to ‘advise’ them. Of course it had to be a Jew with a strong Jewish identity rather than a Christian with a deep knowledge of what works. The task of hobbling the nascent Iraqi democracy with the least workable electoral system was given to a brilliant [[aren't they all, always brilliant] scholar Noah Feldman.

    In the first place any sense of discretion would have led to an appointment of anyone but a Jew. America has many constitutional scholars who are not of the tribe. But neocon triumphalism had to come first.

    Noah Feldman is the product of the Brookline, Massachusetts Maimonides School, an elite sectarian grammar/high school that produces, among other things many migrants to Israel. Its main focus is Jewish identity. Needless to say Feldman pursued the Israeli agenda of a permanently crippled Iraq to the American interest of a stable Middle East.

    Feldman deserves the same ring in hell as Lewis.

    An aside, the Maimondes School is also home to a clergy/child sex scandal that you likely have not heard much about. Rabbi Stanley Levitt is facing trial for abusing male students. Recently he recanted on a plea deal and faces trial in the spring.It is astounding how some group’s criminals manage to fly under the radar screen of our free press. Change Rabbi to Priest or Minister and you would have a national, first page story, rather than – silence.

    I think the aim of the invasion and occupation was always the destruction of Iraq; and as tadzio points out the constitution was designed to have disastrous effects.

    Israel has wanted Iraq divided into 3 ethnic states for close to 30 years. Viktor Ostrovsky pointed this out when he said that during his time in the Mossad in the early 80s Israel already had a plan to begin discrediting Saddam, with the goal being the breakup of Iraq.

    I agree with Invictus. Saddam was the “glue” which held the disparate factions in Iraq together. By demonizing and destroying the “glue”, the Jews knew that the final outcome would be a divided, failed state–one which will offer no threat to the state of Israel. I think we will see the same scenario play out in Libya, Syria, and even Iran. Israel will be surrounded by a gaggle of weak, failed states–which is good for the Jews.

    This part bothers me the most too, because 10 years ago, before I knew any better, I had hoped that Iraq would become a Middle Eastern version of Japan and Germany – conquered opponents that adopted the Western ideals of social organization (please forgive me, this was almost 10 years ago, I didn’t know any of the many flaws of that argument). If Iraq became a Western-style democracy, so the argument went, then the rest of the Middle East would follow.

    I believe this promise influenced more people than the WMD lie, which everyone knew was suspect. Even the idea that we were going to expand the American Empire was probably acceptable to most Americans, as long as we received some benefit from it (stability in the region, cheap oil, etc.). None of that occurred. The oil was not used to recoup our trillion dollar “investment”. The lives we lost were not a down payment on promoting American interests or safety.

    It was a lie to promote Israeli interests (as they saw them – they were probably not correct in their assessment of what would benefit them – keeping Saddam would probably have been good for the US and Israel).

    The civil war in Iraq has already begun. Maliki has called for the arrest of the vice President of Iraq. A Sunni man by the name of Tariq al-Hashemi. He is held up in the Kurdish area in Iraq. The Kurds, who are majority Sunni and Christian refuse to hand him over to Maliki.

    The recent bombings in Baghdad were targeted against Shiite areas and Government buildings. The Sunni leader is now blamed for this.

    The Iraqi people have lived under such horror for so long. They are battle hardened people. Expect this civil war to be extremely bloody.

    With Maliki having close ties to Iran, money and weapons are available to him. I always wondered why Bush installed Maliki to run Iraq, a man with strong ties to Iran.

    I know a Christain (Chaldean) Iraqi woman who came here as a refugee. She told me years ago the primary reason for the topple of Sadaam was to fragment the population of Iraq, turn it on itself and use them as a proxy to wage war on Iran. With a pro-Iran PM, Maliki, Iraq seems to be headed in that direction.

    From what I have heard about Iraq, It was a more Western stlye nation prior to the invasion. Sadaam was not a radical Muslim. He employed a Christian, Tarik Aziz, to run his foreign policy. His children were all educated by Christian teachers, his house staff were all Christians.

    Under Sadaam, the Christian minority was very properous and free to practice their religious beliefs. Iraq was also very advanced in comparison to neighboring states.

    What the war did was take them back to religious strife, a very un Western stlye of life.

    “…Lewis…argues that Arabs have a long history of consensus government,if not democracy,and that a modicum of outside force should be sufficient to democratize the area…”

    The “consensus” (Arabic:Ijma’) to which Islam “expert” Bernard Lewis refers as being a basic ingredient in Islamic culture that would make Muslims easily embrace a Western style democracy is in reality one of the three sources of Islamic jurisprudence(Fiqh),the other two being the Koran (Qur’an) and the practice of the prophet (Sunna).Ijma’ is the consensus of Muslim scholars (Ulama) about problems in jurisprudence and has absolutely nothing to do with a consensus about governmental decisions reached among the public by a democratic process.Muslim societies have traditionally always been ruled by despots,albeit that the “ideal” Muslim ruler is supposed to care for the wellbeing of his subjects and be open to popular requests.,quite something different from Western democratic party politics.The failure of Western style democracy is symptomatic for the Islamic world.Even “secular” political parties such as the socialist Ba’ath party both in Syria and in Iraq became only vehicles for dictatorships (Assad in Syria,Saddam Hussein in Iraq).

    Bernard Lewis’ “expert” advice was of course nothing but a trick to promote an Israeli policy that had an interest in breaking up a strong Arab country that it saw as a threat to its security and regional hegemony.

    Has there ever been a Jewish adviser who did not promote Jewish interests to the detriment of his host country?I think it is about time to categorically distrust the phenomenon of the Jewish adviser.A good start would be to debunk the myth of exceptionally Jewish intelligence which on closer inspection simply doesn’t exist.

    The Iraq invasion was a premidated Zionist objective. Those interested in further reading about this objective check out “The Clean Break Plan” on Google or wikipedia. Short synopsis follows.

    The reason to invade Iraq was part of a report of a Study Group on a New Israeli Strategy Toward 2000, for Bibi Nethanyahu. Former United States Assistant Secretary of Defense Richard Perle was the “Study Group Leader”, but the final report included ideas from James Colbert, Charles Fairbanks, Jr., Robert Loewenberg, Douglas Feith, David Wurmser, and Meyrav Wurmser.

    The plan proposed new policies:
    1. Rather than pursuing a “comprehensive peace” with the entire Arab world, Israel should work to “contain, destabilize, and roll-back” those entities that are threats.

    2. Changing the nature of relations with the Palestinians, specifically reserving the right of “hot pursuit” anywhere within Palestinian territory as well as attempting to promote alternatives to Arafat’s leadership.

    “SYRIA challenges Israel on Lebanese soil. An effective approach, and one with which American can sympathize, would be if Israel seized the strategic initiative along its northern borders by engaging Hizballah, Syria, and Iran, as the principal agents of aggression in Lebanon,

    That Given the nature of the regime in Damascus, it is both natural and moral that Israel abandon the slogan comprehensive peace and move to contain Syria, drawing attention to its weapons of mass destruction programs, and rejecting land for peace deals on the Golan Heights.

    That Israel can shape its strategic environment, by focusing on removing Saddam Hussein from power in IRAQ.— an important Israeli strategic objective in its own right — as a means of foiling Syria’s regional ambitions.

    The plan was prepared before GWB got elected and all those involved worked for Rumsfeld at one time.

    Ms Allbright on CBS stated that its”worth starving over 500,000 Iraqi children if it accomplishes regime change [getting rid of Saddam]

    LETTER TO THOMAS L. FRIEDMAN:

    This message is being sent to you through the office of your publisher at fsg.publicity@fsgbooks.com

    Your Dec. 13 NYT suggestion that applause for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was “bought and paid for by the Israel lobby” was a deceptive description of how the highly diverse Jewish community institutions in America work to groom American politicians to support Israel’s anti-human excesses right from the time of the politician’s emergence as a candidate for school board or city council. Here’s the link to your NYT piece on Dec. 13:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/14/opinion/friedman-newt-mitt-bibi-and-vladimir.html?_r=1&ref=thomaslfriedman

    Usually a person representing the local ADL or another Jewish community group, or sometimes a Rabbi, takes notice of the political newcomer and educates him or her to sympathize with Jewish attitudes and Israeli policies, sometimes involving a low cost trips to Israel. The youthful candidates are examined for their flexibility for service to the Israeli cause, and the amenable ones are increasingly supported upward through the hierarchy of political offices that make up American politics.

    There is only rarely a massive infusion of cash from Jewish interests, although there is frequently a threat to support an opponent financially. “Grooming” candidates is usually very low cost indeed, and lacks any competing community voice whatsoever. (Shame on us for that neglect.)

    I use the verb “groom” purposely because the flattery and manipulation of young politicians in America is conducted the same way that young English girls are “groomed” into lives of drug addiction and prostitution in the service of hostile immigrants into Great Britain.

    Please do not insult yourself by suggesting that “the Israel lobby” buys or pays for applause. “Grooming” made the applause inevitable at least 20 to 30 years earlier in the Congressional career. Good whores applaud their pimp.

    Sincerely……

They WANT a chaotic Iraq, Syria etc. This is classic Jewish strategy.

    In October 2002, Canadian war reporter, journalist and author Eric S. Margolis warned Americans that Washington’s invasion of Iraq for a regime change would be “road to folly”. He believed that the war hysteria against Saddam Hussein’s ‘non-existent’ nuclear bombs was created by the pro-Israel individuals and groups who wanted to destroy the only technically advanced Arab neighbor of Israel.

    “First, oil. Iraq’s oil reserves are second only to those of Saudi Arabia …. Second, Iraq poses a potential threat to Israel’s regional hegemony and Mideast nuclear monopoly because of its oil wealth and – at least until 1991 – industrial base. For Administration hawks who view the Mideast mainly through the lens of Israel’s strategic needs, crushing Iraq is a high priority. A shattered Iraq, divided into Kurdish, Sunni, and Shia regions, would permanently terminate any future challenge to Israel,” wrote Eric Margolis…..

    Aristotle wrote in his Politics that the peoples of the Levant were despotic by nature. Really, nobody should have believed that the Iraqis were ready for democracy. It’s absurd on its face. For one thing, the country has three major ethnic/religious divisions that don’t get along — three different peoples, in effect. The expression of the popular will of one means the suppression of the popular will of another. The country will either be ruled from the top down, or it will split along those divisions.

    There have so many big lies about Iraq that I am not sure if Lewis’ lie was really egregious. In what other ways were we misled by the Neocon Jews’ propaganda?

    *No Kurds gassed by the Iraqi Government

    @Hadding Scott: Why don’t Middle Eastern despots even try and look like decent guys on TV, when addressing the West, and why don’t they take the opportunity to deny any allegations which may be false?

    I assume they aren’t very good at it. Apparently, the skills needed to rise to the top of an Arab country don’t involve coming across as “nice”. I suppose that is the culture of fear at work – you must look like a strong, scary man at all times.

    But if Sadaam could have simply denied most of those allegations in an interview, while looking sincere, it might have accomplished something. Of course, I have a feeling that most Middle Eastern despots are guilty of too many crimes for them to come across as believable. And instead, they end up looking like the picture in this link of Saddam and a boy. Not good for PR purposes. The Arabs need some media savvy Jews to help them with their case.

    As the US occupation of Iraq comes to its end – the country is facing a significant rise in US-Israel sponsored sectarian terrorism. To counter this Zionist anti-Muslim plot, Muqtada al-Sadr, the leader of Islamic resistance has issued an appeal to all Iraqi religious and ethnic groups, urging them to respect each other and warned them against spilling Iraqi blood which will only benefit the anti-Muslim occupation forces.

    @Hadding Scott: Yes, not a bad interview. This is one of the bad things about the polarization in this country – the people that needed to change their minds (generally conservative Whites), were not going to listen to anything Dan Rather presented. In fact, during the run up to the war, it was the loud Leftist elements that got all the attention, so most White Americans mostly dismissed them. Most of the arguments against the war tended to focus on the joys of tolerance loving your neighbor, and evil of white men in America, which was going to relegate the argument to the Hippy Bin in the minds of most Americans.

    When most of the people in the streets against the war were marching alongside Communist party members (which I remember seeing), it tends to marginalize the movement. When most of the arguments focus on how it’s not good to be “too strong” in international affairs, that is a loser. I hope now that there is a growing alternative Right movement that can take on these issues from a more traditional patriotic perspective that will change the minds that need to be changed.

    Eric Margolis on his website states that he is “A native New Yorker, he maintains residences in Paris, New York and Banff but spends much of his time traveling the globe on assignment.” He interviews frequently on antiwar.com with Scott Horton. He has mentioned a Jewish family. A comment to one of those interviews states, “Eric Margolis is one interesting bird. Son of Henry Margolis, a Jewish American industrialist, and Nexhmie Zaimi, an Albanian Muslim journalist. Her writings and courage in defending the Palestinian people in the 50′s (while living in New York, she received many death threats targeting young Margolis) inspired him a great deal.His father was the inventor of the credit card concept. He was on the ill-fated flight of the British Comet which blew up (after he got off in Rome) which doomed aircraft sales in favour of the rival Boeing 707.”

    He frequently describes himself as “An Eisenhower Republican” who served in the Korean conflict. I’ll take him at his word, he is an American, not a Canadian, whatever his employment record. He appears to have independent means and to have used the Toronto Sun as much as a tool of syndication than as an employer.

    @matthew:

    I’m not an optimist or whatever, but it is important to judge things as accurately as possible…and this can mean being ready to criticism our existing views.
    One example of criticism I have for WN’s is that insufficient insight of how the scientific and other revolutions naturally destabilized the old ways.
    This doesn’t let organized Jewry off the hook…their motives aren’t changed. Nor are their deeds. But what is changed is their absolute ingenuity and ability. They did not have the ability to destroy Western Civilization. They tried for hundreds of years and got nowhere. But the massive social change and moral and philosophical destabilization from the scientific and other revolutions, provided them with a once in a millennial opportunity. We need to understand that in that situation, it only took an influential group with bad intentions to just push things hard in the direction they were teetering on the edge of toppling.
    This matters because there’s a sense that we up against a genius group of masterminds who cannot be overturned. This just isn’t true. It isn’t hard to get on top of the world when the world offers no organized resistence. The situation we are in is bad, but a hell of a lot of it is built on sand.
    The other thing we need to realize is that, as KM says, it is actually very likely that as crime gets worse, and ethnic power politics gets more obvious, and majorities turn into minorities in some places (sadly for you guys it will probably be America long before anywhere else) that attitudes will seriously change…even in governments..when it comes to immigration. So the pace will be slowed.
    We’ve probably got longer than we think to get this sorted out. We’ve probably got about 50 years.
    We need to think long term. There has to be some other guys reading this who can become a billionaire in the next 20 years if they really go out there and feel like they have the fate of their race on their backs? If there are…then I have good ideas…that I am willing to pass on. Big ideas.

    iraqi christians have declined by 2/3s– and in all the ‘arab springs’ we are promoting – like in Syria – christians will be cleansed/ purged- The US and Western media all but ignore this

    I believe this is aspect was ‘gravy’ for Jews who have an ancient hatred of Christianity that is difficult to exaggerate.

    I remember when the war was faltering, Wolfolwitz published an article claiming there’s no such thing as neocons and even if there were well they weren’t responsible for the war. I believe the outrageousness of that lie was intended as a message to fellow jews- blame the goy like Bush.

    I don’t know if the neocons ever thought their ideas would succeed, but I largely suspect that the real goal was to bomb these countries back into the stone age, get the subgroups fighting, so they wouldn’t be focused on Israel’s atrocities.

    The problem with this atricle is that it misses the point that European societies has been more dictatorial than Middle Eastern societies were. And the ethnic lines divididng European societies has been more pronounced than any sectarian divisions in the Middle East. America itself is a case point in that. We have never seen in Arab history any kind of rigid racial segregation among ethnic lines of the kind we saw in America. It could also be argued that it was always the Neocon’s goal to destabilize Iraq as what Dr Stephen Sneigoski said in his brilliant book “The Transparent Cabal”. Dr Sneigoski said that it was always the Neocon goal to turn Iraq to a sectarian divided nation. The idea was to weaken the Arab states and thereby weakening any support for the Palestinians. After all these sects lived together for centuries yet there is no precedence to what we are seeing in Iraq anytime in Iraqi history.

    It could also be argued however that it was the rise of fundementalist Islam at the expense of the Sufi brand of Islam that has contributed to this rise in religious tension we see now in the Middle East. There is an element of truth to that. The rise of the so called political Islam during the 1920s backed by the Wahhabi take over of Saudi Arabia created a new framework. Islamic history was usually dominant by power struggles among the political class rather than social tensions. Plus people can also say that many nations go through situations like this including the French revolution and the American civil war.

    This notion that democracy is something only European societies has and Islamic societies can not have does not stand the scrutiny of actual history. Plus we know that Japan succeeded and India succeded in having functioning democracies. I see the arguments presented in the article as not have historic accuracies but is mainly derived of simplistic stereotypes, something I have said here repeatedly that Nationalist fall prey too. It can be observed that many of the arguments presented in the article can easily be countered. It is the kind of argument we see by Pat Buchanan. But I do not think it will succeed. Its too simlistic.

    As far as Bernard Lewis was concerned I think he wanted to advance the Iraq war. But so long as the American tank was the one who brought this democracy to Iraq it will always be the one to blame. I do not see Tunisia going the same way. So the arguments are really a way to simply deny American role, and especially the Neocon role in what we see in Iraq and Afghanistan. But the reality is America did side with the Shias and Kurds against the Sunni Arabs. The disbanding of the Iraqi army and the debathification was just a ploy to marginilize the Sunni Arab.

    Dr Sniegoski breaks it down right in this short interview with Karen U. Kwiatkowski a Ron Paul supporter and former employee at the Pentagon. Karen also talked about how the Neocons took over the Pentagon in an interview. She called it a network that uses propaganda.

    From wikipedia:

    “Kwiatkowski described how a clique of officers led by retired Navy Captain Bill Luti, assistant secretary of defense for NESA and former aide to Dick Cheney when the latter was Secretary of Defense, took control of military intelligence and how the “Office of Special Plans” (OSP) grew and eventually turned into a censorship and disinformation organism controlling the NESA.[5]

    But the ultimate goal of these Neocons was to break up iraq and now do the same to Iran and perhaps paved the way for greater Israel

    @me:

    Most individual Jews don’t know the truth about organized Jewry. Nearly all witness the anti-white hatred, but they are taught not to see it like that…from young they are indoctrinated into a world view that cuts slack to shortcomings in Jewish views based on historical suffering. For example, most ordinary Jews know from personal experience that massive preference is given to other Jews in commerce, in terms of choosing lawyers, accountants, doctors, suppliers of goods, employment, promotion and so on. But they have explanations handed to them for this, for example that these practices are just an innocent throwback to the days when Jews were excluded by gentiles, so had to rely on eachother. The fact that such things are heavily promoted in Torah and Talmud and oral tradition are conveniently overlooked.
    the point is that, most Jews are ordinary human beings who believe they are good people, and by and large are good people. This property of decency and good/honourable nature is real and exists most strongly around the outer edges of the ‘manifestation’ of the Jewish people. It’s the part that influential gentiles will most often come into contact with. And this is one of the reasons why gentile society finds it so easy to buy into the idea that Jews are pure and good. In reality many individual Jews very often are extremely decent.

    This talk of Jews having a demonic look, and being evil incarnate. Not only is it dehumanizing in and of itself, but also it blurs our vision and hobbles are ability to see reality in vivid granularity. It is self-defeating. It is so easily seized on by our enemies and used to reinforce the view of us that we are the evil dehumanizing ones.

    Right now, one of the worst threats facing organized Jewry comes from within their ranks. Many principled Jews are waking up to the true nature at the core of their religion and they are making stands. Or if not making stands they are turning their backs. In many cases it is the policies of Israel that begins this journey for Jews, just as it does for gentiles in increasing numbers.
    Left to resolve its differences within itself, longer term as KM says, the hard core of Judaism will win out over the hesitating outer spheres. With Whites now confidently projected as dealt with, the body of Judaism is metamorphizing over decades such that the harder core grows and the softer, semi-assimilated out sphere thins.
    But even that can be to our advantage, if we understand it deeply enough. Speaking of demons and essential nature, when it goes beyond what can be said with a scientific hat on, hurts us and weakens us. And strengthens them. Gives them a supernatural strength, which they do not have.

    I understand what you are saying. I do not mean to imply ‘all jews’ look like like that, and by demonic, I don’t mean literally from hell (though I wonder sometimes :) )
    But, if you have been around askanazi you know that often their behavior seems rooted in their genes – in the same way certain breeds of dogs are more high strung and prone to barking and biting. I understand that they have high degrees of many nervous disorders. I am sure anyone who has lived where there are lots of jews would agree- you see a certain ‘type’ and you know you can expect obnoxious behavior. Look for example, at the face of Trotsky or Harold Meyerson:

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/09/02/AR2008090202442.html

    As, I think KM once pointed out, that face could easily be pasted into an NKVD photo and blend right in.

    Also, in the same way Japanese look Japanese, – some ugly, some pretty, but all Japanese, askanzi have a “look” and I do think it is, well, less lovely than other peoples. I do think that many of the archetypal ‘evil’ characters in our folk tales and memory are based on askanazi characteristics.

    Just look at any characterization of a witch or troll – you’ll see far more askanazi that look like that than gentiles. That’s not to say that gentiles don’t sometimes have those characteristics, but its more common among askanazi.

    It seems to me we’ve created a world.. or they have, where there is no right and wrong, (except of course the evil nazis) and there is something in their talmudic culture that allows them to create a reality of words that absolves them of any wrong doing.

    I have brought up behavior of Askanazi to family members who are all too aware of it, and their first impulse is not to deny it, because that’s next to impossible – even assimilated, more truly open minded Jews will point out that Jews are aggressive and obnoxious- but to blame us or antisemitism’.

    You will say, there are thieves, evil, dishonesty, in all races – I would add in all human hearts -mine included; but when I see the behavior of Jews as we are describing here it is uniquely askanazi. There is NO OTHER race that has such a raging hatred of Christmas, for example. Of course not all jews – but ONLY JEWS produce so many people who hate Christmas. Other races look at and see a beautiful custom as we might look on, say Japanese ritual, or Hindu rights. (with their use of the swastika i don’t think the jews would like that either but that’s another story :) ) But it is only the askanazi that have such hatred for a season of hope, peace, and good will.

    Roughly put, since the consciousness of the Treaty of Westphalia first gained traction in Europe, we’ve (white Europeans) have been acting like nation states, with all the compromises and accommodations that historically entails in each country, whilst Jews have continued to act and think in a coordinated transnational fashion like the tribe they are.

    As a result the white European civilisations have been hamstrung and unable to seek and pursue monocultural policies that guarantee their own cultural survival whilst Jews have hoovered up the rich pickings of political power and financial influence as a result.

    The emergence of efficient international communications and global finance has been a boon to their cause as it has enabled them to operate in a truly global fashion in real time.

    Hopefully the same technologies will enable us to organise and mobiles along lines that will counter this subversion.

    I am not particularly optimistic however and think the parasite will eventually destroy the host -as it ALWAYS has in the past – see the scorpion and frog fable. they can’t help themselves.

    Ron Paul won’t win IMHO – but he will go down as the John the Baptist-like character who warned us ONE LAST TIME of what was coming down the pike. History will remember him kindly. But I fear it’s too late to change the direction of USA or the world.

    We are, after all, only 2-3 small easy to make political missteps away from a potentially nuclear conflagration in the M.E., because Russia and China won’t put up with much more BS reqarding ziocon designs on Iran. And if there is any administration likely to make these missteps is is the empty-suited Jew-puppet one USA presently has.

    The one thing that i remember the most clearly over the past 39-40 years of my school days at Brandeis University in1970′s are my student adviser’s words that when he was growing up that his grand parents and parents used the term “‘goyishe kup,’” meaning that the “Non-Jews are Stupid”

    Later in life I learned that the exact translation of “GOYISHE KUP” means that the “Cattle are STUPID”..

    I remember him recalling whatt his father told him when he was growing up in Eastern Europe. One of them being that when his father was in high school he and a group of friends would skip school early on Fridays and go over to his friend’s father’s butcher shop. That they would buy at cost any cows , that had not been butchered by the end of the day on Friday before the begining of shabat . They would take the cow home and wash it and then the boys would procede to “beat the udders of the cows so that they would swell up and turn pink” so as to sell them to the “GOYISHE KUP” as milk producing cows.

    The part that I remember him asking me if the East Europeans are so naive, so gullible and so stupid to buy old “non milk producing cows” from a bunch of young Jewish Boys.

    So thinking of it now I agree with the Jewish saying that the “GOYISHE KUP” are indeed” Stupid” as they believe that a Bunch of Arab Muslim Kids who were not able to Fly a Cessna Airplane took it upon themselves to FLY a Boing Jumbo Jet outwitting the US Military and Civilian authorities. The “Jewish Lightning Insurance Scam” of the 1960′s is still alive and well has been put to good use by Larry Silverstein with the help of his sayanim jews made a financial killing in imploding wtc by putting 15 million down and comming out with 7 billion dollars for buidings that no one wanted to buy because it would have cost a billion dollars to remove the asbestos from. Then on top of that the people in America actually believe that they actually decide who is elected President or for that that actual VOTE is really counted and makes a difference in deciding who represents them in the White House and congress. http://www.bollyn.com/index.php

    Yeh I agree that the AmericanNon-Jews are indeed American “GOYISHE KUP” or “STUPID CATTLE”!

    The Israeli Defense Firm That Tallies The Iowa Caucus
    By Christopher Bollyn
    1-1-8

    The Iowa caucus is only a few days away and the nation’s attention will be directed to the results, which signify the beginning of the U.S. presidential race. But does anyone watch who tallies the results of the Iowa caucus?

    The Iowa caucus results were tallied in 2004 by a company that is headed by a man whose company was bought by Elron Electronics, the Israeli defense firm. I suspect that it will be the same this year. Don’t expect to see any grassroots political activists doing the tally in Iowa. The Israeli defense establishment takes care of that part of the American “democratic” election process.

    VOXEO

    In the summer of 2004, I first learned that a foreign and out-of-state company using Interactive Voice Response (IVR) technology tallied the Iowa caucus results.

    The system used to tally the 2004 Iowa caucus results was provided by a company called Voxeo, which was apparently based in Orlando, Florida. (Yellow flag goes up in the mind of those familiar with Orlando and electronic vote fraud history

    @kaycee: Kaycee, even when I attended college in the early seventies, my friends and I thought that the Presidential elections were meaningless as were most others. Why did we think this? Because we could not bring ourselves to believe, that enormously wealthy and influential people in the U.S. are going to allow the unwashed and in general ignorant public decide their fate in ANY WAY. Period.

    According to reports from the Dept. of Veteran’s Affairs, the beauracracy that handles all our military casualties, U.S. losses in the Middle-east are far higher than has been reported by the MSM. Over 10 ten times higher, & higher than the V.Nam war. These reports claim that as of 2007, our dead number 73,000 & wounded are 1.6 million. If accurate, that would surely mean over 100,000 dead by now & at least 2 million wounded. The reports claim the high command is only counting as KIA those who are killed instantly, while not counting those who die in medivacs or in hospitals. Skeptics should google the Dept. of Vet Affairs for copies of these reports. We are paying a much higher butcher’s bill to protect & expand poor little Israel than most of us realize. An Iranian war blood bill would likely be much higher. Dump Israel now!

    “Stalin’s willing executioners, the Jews, are now the ruling elite in America. As in Weimar Germany, the Jews make most of the money and help to create a culture of neopaganism and nihilism, the decandence and despair. Nothing has changed except the country,” writes Dr. Darkmoon…..

    ———–Just who are the fools here ???? ———-

    The orchestrated invasion of Iraq triumphed because the governing neocon Zionist Jews blatantly but subtly came out en masse with obvious lies & scared timid Goyim were silenced as usual with the threat of Antisemitism or even the frightening threat of being thinly-veiled borderline antisemitic etc.

    These Jews played the Goyim like a violin to bring a holocaust to Iraq with most 95% of Americans in denial.

    BTW — amongst the neocon strategy to “war on Iraq” were the books of Bernard Lewis and Nathan Sharansky .

    Sharansky’s well promoted book made its way to G.W.Bush , Cheney , Condi Rice , Tony Blair & EVERYONE who wanted to be on the right side of the line with the ”The Bush Plan”.

    Sharansky & Lewis the “intelectual” Zionist Israeli ”salesmen” played G.W.Bush “like a violin” when invited to the White House.

    So much so that just after G.W.Bush’s Rose Garden Speech before the Iraq “War” Richard Perle called Sharansky in Israel to tell him that Bush was ” speaking Sharansky word for word out of Sharansky’s book !!!!

    No Goyim or anybody was to to disagree because ALL were & supporters of AIPAC Hawkish Israeli Zionism,Sharansky & Lewis.

    A “War” on Iraq was always an Israeli agenda (P.N.A.C) to firmly dominate the Middle East and a “War” on Iran.
    http://nowarforisrael.com/

    “The Violin” conveyed to the Evangelical G.W.Bush that he could be the “leader” referred to in the Biblical Gog MayGog prophesy.

    The God people & their Creationism are once again responsible.

    “The world had witnessed how the United States attacked Iraq for, as it turned out, no reason at all (except to please Israel). Had the Iranian not tried to build nuclear weapons, they would be crazy,” Martin Van Creveld, Israeli military historian, New York Times, August 21, 2004.

    @tadzio: Eric Margolis’ mother being Albanian might explain why he’s in favor of an “independent” Kosovo, taken from Serbia. Of course the Albanian-supported ethnic cleansing of Orthodox Christian Serbs from that historically Serb enclave was enabled by Bill Clinton using NATO to bomb Serbia into submission. (Just one out of many unconstitutional, stupid and criminal acts of various US presidents.) When I read Eric Margolis columns, I tend more often than not to agree with him. In this case, not so much.
