Civil War in Palestine: Playing into the hands of the Cryptocracy
by Michael A. Hoffman II
For several years now this writer has felt a growing anxiety over the Palestinian penchant for violent resistance to Israeli occupation.
The Israelis brutalize and murder the Palestinians and the Palestinians reply with gunfire, bombs and homemade rockets. True, according to the West’s own ethos concerning resistance to occupation on the part of the French and the partisans during World War II, such resistance is justified. By the standard of the anti-colonial struggle that gave rise to many of the Third World’s new nations during the 20th century, any subjugated people have the right to resort to arms to gain their freedom and their land.
But all of those theories and models fail when applied to Palestine. The French resistance was backed by the UK, the US and the USSR. The partisans of Eastern Europe were mostly Soviet-backed irregulars. Anti-colonial fighters in South Africa and Rhodesia (“Zimbabwe”) were lionized and aided financially and militarily by western powers. Zimbabwe’s armed resistance was later blessed by none other than Pope John Paul II. Robert Mugabe was hailed as an ideal leader by the same pope. In South Africa, the Lithuanian-Judaic Communist Joe Slovo led the ANC bombing campaign against South Africa’s soldiers and civilians. None of Slovo’s atrocities lessened western support for the anti-apartheid guerillas, who eventually triumphed as the result of a nearly air-tight worldwide economic boycott of the South African government.
None of this applies to Palestine. The Palestinians have plenty of sympathy from their Arab brothers, but little else. Fouad Ajami writes, “For their part, the Arab states have only compounded the Palestinian misery. The Arab cavalry was always on the way, the Arab treasure was always a day away, and there was thus no need for the Palestinians to pay tribute to necessity… For decades, Arab society granted the Palestinians everything and nothing at the same time. The Arab states built worlds of their own, had their own priorities, dreaded and loathed the Palestinians as outsiders and agitators, but left them to the illusion that Palestine was an all-consuming Arab concern. Now the Palestinians should know better. The center of Arab politics has shifted from the Mediterranean to the Persian Gulf, a great political windfall has come to the lands of the Gulf and the Arabian Peninsula, vast new wealth due to the recent rises in oil prices, while misery overwhelms the Palestinians. No Arabs wait for Palestine anymore; they have left the Palestinians to the ruin of their own history.” (NY Times, June 19). Ajami has been terribly wrong in some of his past commentaries; that should not blind us to the truths he has written here.
Jordan, Egypt and Saudi Arabia long ago cut a clandestine deal with the Israelis to cooperate with Zionist colonialism while trying to modify and soften the worst aspects of it. They are like beggars asking for crumbs from the Israeli table, a sight all the more disgusting and dishonorable in that the Saudis control the greatest material prize in modern history, the black gold that is oil, but they are too incompetent and sybaritic to do anything meaningful with it, such as buying U.S. newspapers and television stations through Arab-American proxies.
Palestinians die like flies from malnutrition, inadequate health care, Israeli bombs and bullets, and now the bullets of their own men; and the Gulf state sheikdoms revel in luxury as never before. It is difficult to expect much from such people, such as for example, the ability to overcome Israeli suzerainty in our lifetime. Patently, they have accommodated themselves to it – when they are not being out-fought and checkmated by a Kabbalistic genius with no counterpart in Arabia.
Palestinian populists and patriots forever turn to their old reliable standby: guns and rockets. The supremacist Israelis respond however they like — massacres, war crimes, invasions, assassination. A handful of human rights groups pay attention, protest and document it. Some British academics announce a boycott of Israeli academics and are almost shouted off the map of the UK. The European Union is now openly cooperating with Israeli colonialism, as is the new head of the United Nations.
But the Palestinians keep shooting, not only losing friends and moral capital but giving the Israelis the excuse they need to build higher apartheid walls, more checkpoints and settlements.
A definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. The Palestinians keep shooting and bombing Israeli soldiers and civilians, and now even each other and their own women and children, and nothing changes. It only gets worse.
“Raji Sourani, 53, the director of the Palestinian Center for Human Rights…characterized the factional fighting that swept Gaza as ‘sad, bad, bloody, and extremely bitter.’ His organization placed the final death toll at 146 Palestinians, 36 of them civilians, including five children and eight women….Sourani said three fighters were shot dead at point-blank range while recovering from wounds in Gaza’s hospitals. Many other summary executions happened in the streets, he said, implicating both Hamas and Fatah gunmen….Hobbling into the office on crutches, Ismail Sadr, a 28-year-old emergency room doctor, recounted how he was shot in the foot by a Hamas gunman who had moved with about a dozen others into an operating room in the northern city of Beit Hanoun in search of a wounded Fatah fighter. ‘Later, we found this other patient dead in his bed from bullet wounds he didn’t arrive with,’ Sadr said…he could not get medical treatment for himself for several hours while Hamas gunmen surrounded Shifa Hospital.” (Washington Post, June 20).
These are the tactics for which we have condemned the Israelis who have proved to be efficient teachers of the Palestinians, who have deteriorated psychologically after decades of occupation, malnutrition, severe overcrowding and Israeli mass murder.
In the Arab honor code and the Arab concept of manhood, violent retribution for attacks and insults is mandatory. The fact is, until they employ Quaker, Mennonite and Peter Maurin’s Catholic Worker tactics against the Israelis, they are going to continue to lose their land, their quality of life and their humanity. If the reader scoffs, “That’s pacifism,” consider this: in the Kabbalistic chess game, Palestinian non-violence is the only thing the Judaic conspirators fear.
Other than distant Venezuela, the only significant Palestinian ally is Iran, and the dirty little Arab secret of anti-Iranian racism threatens to sabotage even that alliance. Iranians are privately derided as “Persians” and there are plenty of Arab conspiracy theories about Iranians serving as American proxies. I kid you not. It seems they prefer the fat oil merchants of their own race who function as the trained seals of Kabbalistic Zionism.
It’s not difficult to forecast the future of Palestine. The Palestinians will continue to imagine they have Arab allies and some kind of “power,” even as they periodically plead for assistance from the “international community” by which they mean the UN and the European Union. As the pro-Zionist Western media minimizes coverage of Israeli war crimes and maximizes coverage of Palestinian violence, the face of the Palestinians will become indistinguishable from the face of al-Qaeda in the western mind. This has already happened.
As they are made to bear ever more humiliation and oppression not only from Israelis but also from their own factions, the Palestinians will become ever more brutalized and radicalized, and the appeal of Salafist Islamic fundamentalism, (itself a creature of the western intelligence agencies whose Shin Bet had a hand in the rise of Hamas and who have a CIA asset in Fatah’s Mohammed Dahlan), will grow exponentially.
The Palestinians, like the Arabs generally, from the “street” to the palaces, are following the Kabbalistic script to the letter. In the crucible of alchemical transformation, the once mostly secular, urbane and peace-loving Palestinians are becoming hateful religious fanatics to rival the hate-filled fanatic-rabbis of the Israeli settlements.
In that same crucible, the Muslims who, for a thousand years observed a code of non-violence toward civilians that shamed the West and made Saladin a figure of admiration throughout the world, have descended to the level of Ishmael, a wild man whose hand is against every man’s and every man’s against his.
Islam will have real power in Europe in fifteen or twenty years because that continent full of self-exterminating hedonists is going to contracept itself out of existence and Pope Benedict XVI, who privately shields and harbors child molester-facilitators like Bernard Law, Roger Mahoney and William S. Skylstad, does not have much credibility preaching “family values” to Europe’s boys-and-girls-gone-wild. The Muslims will gain on Europe demographically and conquer by that means.
In the U.S. it’s a different story however, with resurgent Protestant fundamentalists and Catholic traditionalists having large families. The Arabs and Muslims are losing support every day in the U.S., even among anti-Zionist Christians who are appalled by what’s been transpiring in Iraq and now Gaza. Imagine what would have happened to the moral capital of the the black people of the American South during segregation, had they responded to Bull Connor’s dogs and fire hoses with machine guns and rockets? Jim Crow would still be ruling the South.
Americans of all shades of opinion are becoming disgusted and turned off by the unbridled carnage Arabs are willing to visit on their brethren and each other’s holy places and while that’s hypocritical, considering that 600,000 Americans slaughtered each other in a War Between the States that to this day is celebrated as Mr. Lincoln’s finest hour, our own hypocrisy cannot overcome the fact that the Arab character is increasingly viewed, even by those Americans with no sympathy for Zionism, as deeply tainted by violence.
Americans value law and order and the prospect of sharing our country with people who will bomb their own mosques in Iraq and slay their own children in Gaza is not an appealing prospect. Meanwhile the Judaics we know in our towns and cities play violin in the local orchestra, teach literature in the local schools, serve as our doctors and dentists in hospitals and clinics and are seldom involved in assaults or street crime. In other words, however false the stereotype, the image of Judaic = peace and order, Arab = bloodlust and anarchy, is gaining throughout the West and the fault is not solely that of the biased Zionist media.
The civil war in Iraq and the spectacle of Hamas running amok in Gaza, have been an Arab/Muslim public relations disaster. Consider this recent headline: “Israel Lets Food and Medicine Enter Gaza to Avert Crisis.” The vile neo-Nazi Israeli regime is being made to look good by suicidal Arabs whose chief ambition seems to be the same as that of the settler rabbis: to light a fuse of war that will never stop burning. This fits the neo-con Bush/Cheney “clash of civilizations” scenario like a glove.
Is there an Arab Gandhi or Dorothy Day on the horizon? If not, then God help us all.
