government is a hopelessly lost slave to Israeli dictates. The media
wallows in abject servitude to Israel's shills at the helm of the major
film studios, broadcasting companies, newspapers and magazines.
After the Israelis attacked the Gaza Freedom Flotilla, most of the world
condemned Israel for their blatant piracy, murder of nine humanitarian
activists and serious injuries to dozens more.
The Israelis lied
just as they have lied for years about the threat of Palestinian children
throwing stones at tanks. Those on board the flotilla's ships had only

us what they want us to do, and we'll support it’.”
One congressional representative, Mike Pence, literally said, “Israeli
officials should tell us what they want us to do, and we'll support it”.
As insane as that premise is, many US politicians and media accept it.
Veterans Today Senior
Editor and political commentator Gordon Duff notes that it doesn’t take a
genius to see that our current foreign policy is dictated by Tel Aviv:
The basis for accepting the supremacy of Israeli interests over that of
the United States is holocaust guilt, calculated Islamophobia promulgated
by pop culture, the impression of a strategic alliance with Israel that
secures the United States and a belief that Israel is a bastion of
democracy that was brutally attacked in 1967 by massed invading armies of
Arabs bent on the genocide of Jews around the world.
For some strange reason, many Americans do feel guilt over the
holocaust. Holocaust survivor Alexander Kimmel explained it as essentially
a failed moral responsibility:
"The responsibility of those who,
witnessing the senseless killings, did nothing to stop the killings or
help the innocent victims." That he attributes to a general
"anti-Semitism" on the part of both the public and the leaders of
countries surrounding Germany.
The argument has, of course, been
used to instil guilt in Americans who were just as oblivious to other
terrible deeds. Victims of Stalinist terror have been estimated at between
20 million and 60 million. Americans feel no guilt over that.

government, including genocide, politicide and mass murder), but only the
constant reminders of the Jewish "holocaust" has been used to inspire
Duff hasn't explained what he means by "Islamophobia
promulgated by pop culture" other than his later reference to how "the ADL
[Anti-Defamation League] promotes negative racial and ethnic stereotypes
of all Muslims as barbaric and often sub-human or untermenschen”.
Then there has been what Duff calls "the impression of a strategic
alliance with Israel that secures the United States". It is beyond
comprehension that anyone in the US government still believes such
Americans must have their heads in the sand to continue
to believe that "Israel is a bastion of democracy". Israeli political
geographer Oren Yiftachel makes it clear that Israel is an ethnocracy that
serves one ethnic group well and the other badly.

contested territory ... while maintaining a democratic façade." Yet
Americans, with only a little knowledge of the facts, still refer to
Israel as "the only democracy in the Middle East".
celebrating Independence Day with hot dogs, beans, beer, baseball and
fireworks, Americans should wake up and declare independence from the
dictates of Israel.
