Deviating From the Herd-Spinning
Of Middle East Events

With due apologies, here are a few thoughts that differ from the "herd" line. Please remember that it takes courage to differ from the herd mentality by pundits and others in the media, and take the following simply for diverging views. Having said that, here are a few thoughts from someone who lived and worked with the people in Lebanon and Jerusalem:


Powerful Israel Lobby Subverting U.S. Interests

So powerful are the Israel political groups that Israel has been able to:


Israel's Invasion of Lebanon in July 2006

In July 2006, Israel, with its powerful military machine provided by the United States and its taxpayers, conducted a turkey-shoot invasion and destruction of Lebanon, putting the relatively poor nation into shambles, along with the deaths of countless numbers of innocent people.

With no military able to defend against the missiles and jet aircraft attacks, the people of Lebanon were sitting ducks for the cowardly Israel attackers.

Entire cities of this impoverished countries have been laid to waste by the Israeli forces, using U.S. supplied weapons.

Israel sought to justify its slaughter of Lebanese on the argument that two Israeli solders were captured. Israel had hundreds of Lebanese imprisoned, some for over ten years. Only the brain-dead could accept that argument.

President Bush approved the slaughter by arguing Israel's murderous attacks were justified by the seizure of two Israeli soldiers.

This is not simply an invasion of a country that had virtually no defenses against invasion by air; it was murder of innocent people, including children—which Israel has been very good at in subverting the people in the invaded and occupied West Bank and Gaza. The killing of innocents, including babies, and invading countries that have no defenses even close to comparing with the might of the United States, appears to be also a well entrenched trait of U.S. politicians (and their shills throughout government, in the media, and among the public.

The "Turkey Shooting" by Israel of defenseless men, women, children, and infants has similarities to the Turkey Shoot of Navy personnel on the U.S.S. Liberty in June 8, 1967, as Israel was invading the West Bank, which started the escalating so-called terrorist acts by the defenders and friends of the defenders. although the media shills have kept the details from the public, the crewmembers who survived that brutal Turkey Shoot have a web site describing the deliberate and repeated shelling of the ship.

But the deliberate targeting of non-combatants by Israel is common practice. One incident during the Israel Turkey Shoot of Lebanese was the deliberate 6-hour attack upon a U.N. post that killed four U.N. observers who were monitoring the slaughter of Lebanese. A New York Times article (July 27, 2006, stated:

U.N. Says It Protested to Israel During 6-Hour Attack That Killed 4 Observers in Lebanon.

The United Nations said Wednesday that its top officials in New York and its officers on the ground in Lebanon made numerous calls on Tuesday to the Israeli mission and the Israeli military to protest repeated firing on its outpost in Lebanon where four unarmed observers ended up being killed.

Jane Holl Lute, the assistant secretary general for peacekeeping operations, said at an emergency meeting of the Security Council that over the six-hour period in which the United Nations' warnings were being conveyed to the Israelis, the observation post at Khiam, in southern Lebanon, continued to come under fire.

The firing persisted even after rescuers reached the hilltop site, she said, and in all it was subjected to 21 strikes, 11 of them aerial bombardments and at least 6 artillery rounds.

She described the observation posts as being "well known and clearly marked" and added that no Hezbollah activity was reported in the area.

Ms. Lute said the United Nations became so alarmed by the continuing attacks that she enlisted Mark Malloch Brown, the deputy secretary general, to join her in placing the calls.

In Lebanon, Khaled Mansour, the United Nations spokesman, said that he and Maj. Gen. Alain Pellegrino, the commander of the United Nations force there, known as Unifil, had contacted Israeli military commanders repeatedly during the same period.

When the United Nations lost contact with the outpost on Tuesday evening, it secured safe passage from Israel to send in a rescue party of Indian troops. Firing continued during the rescue operation despite repeated requests to the I.D.F. for an abatement," she said, speaking of the Israeli Defense Forces.

They [U.N. rescue team] found the shelter collapsed and the remains of the four observers.

In a news conference, the normally placid Mr. Annan made no effort to control his rage at Israel for what he called an "apparently deliberate targeting" of a United Nations observer post in southern Lebanon by Israel on Tuesday.

An Israeli airstrike near the Syrian border hit a truck carrying medical supplies and food from the United Arab Emirates Wednesday, killing its Syrian driver, Reuters reported.

President Bush and his secretary of state Rice, supported Israel's conduct, impugning blame upon all Americans.

Prior to World War II, there was a great hatred for Jews based upon the conduct of a few belligerent ones, something that is common in the legal fraternity in the United States where a large percentage of the lawyers are Jews.

That crime, combined with the repeated stealing of U.S. secrets, Israel's Mossad involvement in drug smuggling into the United States during the Reagan-Bush years, their involvement in October Surprise, and their brutal treatment of people in the lands they invade, knowing that their acts will generate hatred for the United States, leaves no doubt that Israel's leaders are a threat and source of real harm to the American people.

Israel claims two Israel soldiers were seized, as justification for destroying one of the most Westernized countries in the Middle East. Their military destruction—made possible by U.S. provided weapons and funds--were directed not at Hezbollah fighters in the south, but innocent civilians in the cities, especially Beirut. At the same time, in June 2006, Israel destroyed the only power station in Gaza, destroyed bridges, and other infrastructure.

Like a crazed animal, Israel was killing human beings like crazed drunken hunters shooting and killing caged animals.

Supporting all this were President George Bush, Secretary of State Condoleezza "Bugs Bunny" Rice, and the shills in congress who were recipients of large amounts of money from the powerful Israel lobby and other Israeli groups.


Warning to United States Issued by Saudi Arabian Government

The only real courageous outrage to the Turkey-Shoot killing of people in Lebanon was shown by the rulers in Saudi Arabia. Their announcement on July 23, 2006 stated:

JEDDAH, JULY 25, SPAFOLLOWING IS THE STATEMENT ISSUED TODAY BY THE ROYAL COURT:
" THE KINGDOM OF SAUDI ARABIA HAS UNDERTAKEN THE ROLE REQUIRED OF IT BY ITS RELIGIOUS AND NATIONAL DUTY WITH REGARD TO THE SITUATION IN THE REGION AND REPERCUSSIONS OF EVENTS IN LEBANON AND THE OCCUPIED PALESTINIAN TERRITORIES. IN THIS REGARD, IT HAS CAUTIONED, WARNED AND EXTENDED ADVICE. FURTHERMORE, IT HAS STRIVEN FROM THE FIRST MOMENT TO STOP THE AGGRESSION, MOVING ON MORE THAN ONE FRONT AND BY MORE THAN ONE MEANS, TO PERSUADE THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY TO FORCE ISRAEL TO AGREE TO A CEASEFIRE.


MEANWHILE, THE KINGDOM HAS DISPATCHED HRH THE FOREIGN MINISTER AND HRH THE SECRETARY GENERAL OF THE NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL TO MEET H.E. THE U.S. PRESIDENT IN WASHINGTON AND INFORM HIM OF ITS VIEWS ON THE GRAVE AND UNPREDICTABLE CONSEQUENCES OF THE UNREMITTING ISRAELI AGGRESSION IF MATTERS WENT BEYOND CONTROL. THE KINGDOM HAS ALSO ASKED PERSONAL ENVOYS TO VISIT THE CAPITALS OF THE SECURITY COUNCIL'S PERMANENT MEMBER STATES TO CONVEY THE SAME MESSAGE.


THE ARABS HAVE PROCLAIMED PEACE AS A STRATEGIC OPTION FOR THE ARAB NATION. THEY PRESENTED A JUST AND DISTINCT PLAN FOR REGAINING THE OCCUPIED ARAB TERRITORIES IN EXCHANGE FOR PEACE. THEY REFUSED TO RESPOND TO PROVOCATIONS AND IGNORED ANTI-PEACE EXTREMIST CALLS. IT SHOULD BE STATED THAT PATIENCE COULD NOT LAST FOREVER. IF THE ISRAELI MILITARY BRUTALITY PERSISTED WITH KILLINGS AND DESTRUCTION NO ONE COULD PREDICT THE CONSEQUENCES AND THAN REGRETS WILL BE IN VAIN.

THEREFORE, THE KINGDOM ADDRESSES AN APPEAL AND A WARNING TO THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY IN ITS ENTIRETY, AS REPRESENTED BY THE U.N. AND IN PARTICULAR THE U.S.

THE KINGDOM OF SAUDI ARABIA CALLS ON ALL TO ACT IN ACCORDANCE WITH HONEST, CONSCIOUS AND INTERNATIONAL MORAL AND HUMANITARIAN LAWS. IT ALSO WARNS ALL THAT IF THE PEACE OPTION IS REJECTED DUE TO THE ISRAELI ARROGANCE THEN ONLY THE WAR OPTION REMAINS AND NO ONE KNOWS THE REPERCUSSIONS BEFALLING THE REGION, INCLUDING WARS AND CONFLICT THAT WILL SPARE NO ONE INCLUDING THOSE WHOSE MILITARY POWER IS NOW TEMPTING THEM TO PLAY WITH FIRE.

An entire country laid to waste. For what? Two Israel soldiers captured? Israel has held in prison, for years, hundreds of Lebanese and Palestinians. The firing of rockets? What can be expected of a people whose land had been invaded, been occupied for 39 years, people crushed in their homes with military tanks (paid for and provided by U.S. politicians with public approval).

And of the serial liars that the U.S. has for a president, he and his shills claim they want to protect innocent lives while they rush additional arms to Israel for the target practice of Israel military pilots and guided missiles.

Never before has a president of the United States perpetrated so many impeachable crimes, and has harmed the United  States and other countries in the process. Yet, he can't be impeached, without impeaching the vice president and other shills on the president's staff.

Although there was once hope that the White House group would be out of office before they brought on World War II, with nuclear missiles wiping out many U.S. cities, that hope is all but lost at this time.

And for America's media personnelmany on the secret payroll of the CIA and other government officesnot a word about the unprecedented brutality upon a country with little resources that has just seen much of the infrastructure destroyed.

And for the American public, the same group that approved of the murders of tens of thousands of Iraqis, who continue to support their lying president, and who share guilt in the deaths and tragedies inflicted in their name by the most arrogant and dangerous president in the last 100 years, you are long overdue to suffer the consequences.

Anyone can love their country and hate the people that are destroying it from within, like Trojan horses. And destroying it in ways the in-denial apathetic public doesn't even know.


Another Perspective on Middle East Problems

Let's make a few substitutes to get another perspective on the root cause of the Middle East problems that has bred what some call terrorist activities that then fed on itself:

This is a rough example, but it helps to put another perspective on a view away from the herd mentality of most U.S. media people (and remember many are on the secret payroll of the CIA and other government agencies).


Serious Consequences for U.S. Interests
From Latest Israeli Brutality

U.S. interests were harmed by Israel's brutal attacks on Lebanon. For instance:

As with any other conduct, the United States, by its politicians, have "earned" the consequences, the worse yet to come.

So powerful is the Israel lobby in the United States that virtually no U.S. politician dare speak out against it.

If you disagree, please consider this as simply another view on things from someone who lived in the Middle East before the Israel effect took hold.

Consequences for the American People in Plain Language!

The consequences of U.S. politicians and their self-serving interests in supporting Israel's invasions, occupations, brutalities is more than academic. People from the Middle East that attack US. interests—the ones Americans call terrorists—have repeatedly stated that the U.S. funding, arming, and support for Israel's brutality is the primary reason for their attacks. This primary reason was then greatly expanded as U.S. politicians initiated the brutal wars against Afghanistan and Iraq. This has resulted in such consequences as:
