Many Americans tell us Germans, when we mention the historical obligations being put on us because of the "Holocaust", that we should get over this collective guilt feeling.
The Iranian president and everybody else who tries to help us to overcome our
"guilt-feelings" does not understand our collective German soul.
Not at all.
We revel in our "Holocaust-guilt". We enjoy it, we love it. It´s our shield and our protection.
Because you see, our "Holocaust-guilt-feelings" are no real guilt-feelings at all.
We do not feel guilty. How can we? The events occurred more than 60 years ago.
It´s a vicarious guilt-complex.
By taking upon us the "Holocaust-guilt", we just point the finger at our parents, grandparents and great-grandparents.
And now we can freely feel good about ourselves.
We are righteous, because now support the state of Israel, Jewish state, unconditionally, even with nuclear capable submarines.
When Israelis commits war-crimes against Palestinians, Egyptians and Lebanese, while we partly finance and arm them, we do not have to feel guilty, because our "Holocaust-guilt" gives us historical obligations.
When we reprint cartoons demonizing all Muslims as terrorists and denigrating their religion all over the German media-landscape, we do not have to feel guilty, because we do not demonize Jews as the Nazi propaganda paper "der Stürmer" did.
When we print day, after day, after day anti-Muslim articles or show anti-Muslim news-coverage, we do not have to feel guilty, a little bit of racism is nothing to worry about, as long as the desecrated victims are not Jewish.
When we ban religious Muslimas to work as teachers in Germany and some parts even ban them from working in any public offices, we are still very good and ethical people, because we are no anti-Semites.
Those Muslimas, we say, would give their students or the public they come in contact with, a bad example.
And yes, how dare a Muslima pursuit a higher education and get a desk job or even become a teacher. What a bad example for Muslim girls.
We Germans need those Muslimas to scrub the floors of the schools, vacuum the carpets in public offices and scrub the toilets. Hijab is in Germany the common uniform for the cleaning brigades.
We have nothing against a small, tiny nuclear attack on Iran.
Evaporating a few thousands and burning some hundred thousands alive, because we don´t like their government, we don´t see as a problem, for we are so morally upstanding people, that we throw "Holocaust-deniers" in jail for years.
Right after WWII, what happened during this war, was more or less a taboo-subject for most Germans. It was not before the post-war generation had come to maturity and some of them into powerful positions and we could point our fingers at an earlier generation, that the "Holocaust" became a public matter of attention.
The money we pay now in cpmpensations is sctually small change for the pay-offs we derrive from this pseudo-"collective guilt-trip".
Now the past, we cannot really feel guilty about, is our shield against what we actually should feel guilty about in the present.
"The Holocaust" is for us present-day Germans such a convenient excuse for our own moral and ethical cowardice and a cover-up for our modern-day racism, that if it hadn´t happened, it would have needed to be invented.

"Peak Oilers" do not offer any hope in alternative energy sources,for as Michael Ruppert claims in "From the Wilderness":
"there is no effective replacement for what hydrocarbon energy provides today."
Instead they paint bleak doomsday scenarios of the future like, when Colin Campbell writes that the consequences of oil depletion will be:
"war, starvation, economic recession, possibly even the extinction of homo sapiens."
The implication of this is, that if we, the West, want to survive, we need to secure the Middle Eastern oil-reserves for ourselves, otherwise the Chinese or the Indians will get them.
It´s either us or they who will starve.
But once again we have fallen for a "Big Lie".

The court was very thorough, probably a bit too thorough for the taste of the government.
For the court found out, that they just couldn´t ban the NPD, because no less than half of the leadership of the party was on the pay-roll of the Verfassungsschutz (which has similar functions as the undercover units of the FBI).
So the court said, that they could not be sure wich crimes were committed spontaneously and which were instigated by possible agent provocateurs.
You might have heard about "operation gladio". Operation Gladio was some originally kind of left-behind project organized by the CIA. It´s suposed purpose was to function as a sabotage team in case the Soviets would take over western Europe.
Later on however it became a project for false-flag terrorism, whereby those terror acts were blamed on radical left-wing groups.
In Italy this covert CIA project financed in part the ultra-left Red Brigades in terror activities. Sometimes, as in the Bologna train station bombing, they also resorted to right-wing Masonic organisations like the P2 and just build up the Red Brigades as patsies.
In Italy the man organizing these murders was Michael Ledeen.
In Germany the equivalent of the Red Brigades was the Baader Meinhof group, which called itself RAF.
Former Minister Andreas von Bülow wrote, that at least the third generation of the RAF did never exist and the murders of politicians and economic leaders who were opposed to the whole sale slaughter of the east-German economy after the fall of the wall was really a covert ploy by rogue intelligence units.
But some informed people consider even the first generation of the RAF being infiltrated by intelligence units amd agemt provocateurs.
After the leadership was imprisoned, inspite of their solitary confinement, they all commited simultanious suicide - all except one.
He, Horst Mahler, like the others guilty of murder and terrorist acts, sat in for only 8 years.
When he left prison he turned to the ultra-right-wing.
Right now he is busy discrediting the 9/11 truth-movement and holocaust revisionism.
He turns up at 9/11 conferences and whenever anybody of the researchers explains his point, an interview with Horst Mahler is put next to the interview with the researcher, making the point that any 9/11 researcher is best friend and on the same political line as Horst Mahler.
He also shows up at the revisionist Ernst Zündel trial publishing hate-spewing letters against the German republic and the justice system, indirectly even threatening them with mass-murder.
I could be wrong about the connections, but I´m a conspiracy-theorist after all, and therefore I theorize.
The PNAC papers named the internet as one of the battle fields for American "full spectrum domination".
The famous investigative journalist Seymour Hersh has heard about Pentagon plans to fill the internet with false and misleading information.
I made quite a few strange experiences, when I used to post on German message boards just around the time before the beginning of the Iraq war. Although 85% of the German population was totally against this war, just as most other Europeans, the German internet message boards seemed to be filled with pro-war people.
Some of them pretended to be Germans, while their argumentation did not sound like anything we had heard other Germans us before. Others admitted to being American. Some coudl speak little German others could quote German politicians, from 30 or 40 years ago, better than any German I have heard doing, as if they had a big file of quotes. Some of them were extremely rude and aggressiv and ohters ðlayed strange mind-games. They just didn´t act like normal people just sharing their opinion. And they seemed to be online 24/7. It all had a eery feeling to it.
One guy, who had harrassed a highly frequented German message board, after one of his usually rants and personal attacks against any anti-war people, he told us a bit about himself.
True or not true, I don´t know.
He said, he had worked all over the world, was now in Germany tending the graves of American soldiers from WWII.
And he used to work as a plumber.
Well.... maybe he thought, Germans would not understand this kind of inside joke. Or maybe he just liked bragging.
Anyway, even while I was still politically very naive at that time, I had heard about the "plumbers".
So I guess retired "plumbers" now get jobs at monitoring the WWW.
Let´s come to Israel and the Zionists.
As I stated in another post, I think, they have lost the war for the public opinion.
The paper on the Lobby and Carter´s book are only two of the coffin nails. There are many.
However, they don´t think they have lost, but they sure are getting desperate.
Zionist Israel is not only protected by its military might.
Without its defense-wall of propaganda, it could not support this military.
Israel has the economy of maybe Belgium or Denmark. There is no way such an economy could support the fourth biggest military machine in the world.
Without the money from America and Germany, Israel would have been broke a long time ago.
When the propaganda wall is broken, the money-floods will dry out.
So it is not beyond imagination that some sites, with have a readership of a few thousands or a few hundred thousands might be targeted by damage control people.
In Germany American intelligence has definitely employed a crew of them.
What would be the most efficient way to discredit the anti-Zionist movement?
Let´s see, what about unpacking an old Nazi ideology from the trash-chambers of history and attaching it to the anti-Zionist movement?
How to do it best?
Well, one could of course agree with everything the anti-Zionists say about the crimes of Israel against the Palestinians and the instigation of wars against other Muslim nations by the Israel first Neocons.
And then one could blame all those war-crimes and the treason against America on the genetic make-up of the Jewish people.
And yes, I have heard this kind of argumantation quite a lot recently, and it made me think.
Of course, this Nazi ideology, that Jews are genetically doomed to be a parasite people, will scare the heck out of anybody who comes from a Jewish family.
And if this argumentation is used widely in anti-Zionist circles it would prove the Zionists right, that anti-Zionism is just a thin disguise for anti-semitism which is the believe that Jews are bad by nature and need to be contained and isolated, possibly even murdered.
I allways saw it as a bad move to call others names and imply foul play, because even if I think somebodies views are totally wrong, this person might still be sincere in his or her belief.
The trouble however is, that while I might be slightly paranoid here, many Jewish people in Israel and many outside of Israel are far more paranoid than I am.
As many Israeli and other writers with Jewish background have stated: Fear of being physically targeted for mass-murder or even extermination is deeply ingrained in Jewish culture.
This is the reason for Israel´s "Samson option". They actually believe that if
Zionist Israel falls, they as Jews will have no way of survival, so they might as well take the rest of the world with them into oblivion.
So in order to lower this fear, one has to make clear, that there is survival of Jews as individuals and even as Jewish people beyond Zionism.
And not only this, one has to make clear that Zionism per se is actually a danger to Jewish survival as individuals and as a people.
Every person of Jewish background needs to see an open door through wich he or she can leave Zionism into the safe home of the rest of humanity.
When Zionist behavior is made equivalent with Jewish genes, the door is closed.
And we´ve got the Samson option on the table.
Do we really want that?
While between 200 and 600 Israeli nukes, some of them on German gift-wrapped sub-marines, might not kill us all, they sure can give it a good try.
The Israeli leadership is insane.
The financial elitist leadership of world Zionism doesn't care one way or the other as long as the nukes won't hit them personally. They never cared for the well-being of ordinary Jews in the first place ( just look at the behavior of the world Zionist organisations during WWII), or of gentiles for that matter.
It´s all just a game for them.
We really do not need to increase insanity and paranoia at the moment by aiding a few Nazi oildrops into the explosive mixture.
We need some sanity to regain power again, even in Israel.
Yes the sane people there are a minority right now, but they are the most informed and intelligent Jewish Israelis. They might have a chance.
And in America, they do not need some extra racist craziness either. There the 9/11 truth-seekers and the anti-Zionists are the most informed and intelligent minority.
They constitute between 10 and 30 percent of the American nation and have very little political power, but they are the best shot we have for sanity to stop the mad drive into catastrophy for the whole world.
Zionism also presupposes that the Jewish people need their own state in wich to live either all alone or have at least different laws, for the Jewish and the gentile population, i.e., the Palestinians.
Neverthelss, despite its racist underpinnings, we should never counter Zionist racism with racist anti-Jewish arguments, that blame the behavior of Zionists on Jewish genes.
Any and all racism is always anti-humanistic and it is also self-defeating in the long run and there are several reasons why:
FIRST: You deprive yourself of allies.
If you insist that your opponent is the way he is because of the genes of his collective group, then you cannot hope for dissidents or whistle-blowers from this group to work with you. Since any dissidents from the same group will have the same genes, they will therefore feel threatened by you.
Similarly, members of other groups will be very wary of you. They can´t be confident that one day you will not also turn on them, for having the wrong kind of genes.
SECOND: Racism against this group will strengthen group cohesion.
People will be too afraid to leave the group and leaving behind the only protection they might have (or at least they think they have) against violent racist attacks from others who might think like you do.
THIRD: Your racism can be used by your opponents as a convenient cover for false flag attacks and hoaxes.
Let´s take France.
After Ariel Sharon called on the French Jews to move to Israel because of a "terrible rise in anti-semitic attacks". Some highly publicized "anti-semitic" attacks happened. In many cases the culprits could not be aprehended, so nobody actually knew who was resposible. In a few cases, however, the police could prove the attacks were self-inflicted, in other words hoaxes.
Another example - in Iraq the Israeli Mossad attacked Jewish synagogues, while at the same time pamphlets with anti-jewish slogans were printed. This stampeded Iraqi Jews into Israel.
FOURTH: Racism can be made into a tool to divide and conquer.
In Rwanda the western Imperialist created an upper class of Africans on "racial" criterias, like a lighter color of skin and more caucasian facial features. This artificial "upper class", the Tutsis, was then used to rule the rest of the indigenous people, the Hutus.
After the end of the colonial rule this Tutsi upper class believed in their own superiority and did not want any democratic rule by the majority Hutu population. The civil war out of this, heavily subsidized by the CIA, resulted in the well known Rwandan genocide, with a million or more victims, both Hutu and Tutsi.
Racism can also divide anti-imperialism movements.
Arguments based on racism will discredit all other arguments made, since they now seem just a thin disguise for replacing one supremacism with another.
There is another aspect worth considering:
While it seems to some people that their racism might be based on sound scientific or historic facts, it is in reality far more based on a very selective reading of facts.
Let´s take the mutilation of womens´breast as war-crimes. They were documented in a book of Soviet atrocoties against the Germans, who were to be driven out of Eastern Europe.
One commentator on this site states that similar atrocities have been committed in ancient history by a "turanic" tribe who might have been distantly related to the Jewish commanders of the Soviet soldiers who commited those crimes.
But are those crimes therefore symptomatic for some genetic trait?
If the author of the book documenting these atrocities was not just the German equivalent of Ilya Ehrenburg (a skilled Soviet propagandist), then it is certainly a fact that terrible war-crimes have been committed against German women.
However, those crimes were not unprecedented and they were not only commited by other "turanic" tribes.
The mutilation and mass-rape of women is a tactic which has been used many times in history in order to terrorize the civilian population in the area which was conquered by invading colonialists to get the population to succumb to the invaders.
Reports from human rights activists who came to villages in Nicaragua after the American trained and financed Contras had attacked them, show very similar accounts of atrocities: Womens´ breasts had been cut off and the bellies especially of pregnant women had been slashed open.
Similar atrocities have been committed by American financed death-squads in El Salvador against local women and against female foreign aid workers.
There was a report about 4 American church women, who had been raped, mutilated and their underwear stuffed into their mouths.
Contra- and other death-squad-commanders have been trained in the "School of the Americas," where they were 'schooled' in the "art" of state-terrorism.
America has become an economic invader into many developing countries in the last century, often accompamied by either covert military acts (death-squads) or open ones, (the army, navy, air-force or the marines)
Fear is the most effective tool that can be used to keep a population from rising up against oppression and injustice.
Deception, like false flag attacks and demonisation of the opponent, is another one.
But one does not have to do the mutilating at close range with a knife.
Nowadays you just drop a bomb or shoot a missile into a civilian area and body parts get detached from women and children, all alive at the moment they are being bombed, some of them even afterwards suffering terrible agony and pain before they finally succumb to their wounds.
This tactic of utmost cruelty towards defenseless victims is NOT unique to a single tribe, nation, ethnicity or group.
Cruelty derives from a cruel philosophy: from the notion that some have the inborn right to dominate others,
Either they think they are better than those others because of their collective genes - a better more deserving race -
Or they think they are individually stronger or more intelligent- a social-darwinist view -
Or they believe that they are even spiritually more deserving - an esoteric view -
But the dehumanisation of others as belonging to a less worth-while ethnic, social or spiritual group as oneself, is what makes these atrocities possible.
These atrocities have happened in history many times before and they are happening right now - and they must be stopped before they kill every last one of us in the process
There has been the science-fiction craze in popular culture, in books, movies and TV-series.
This culture has been exported to all western countries and even to other parts of the world as well.
But only in America are there a considerable number of people who cannot see the difference between science-fiction fantasy and every day reality.
One reason might also be the psychotherapy craze in America.
People who have lost faith in God, needed some other kind of guidance.
The practices in many psychotherapy sessions are often close to hypnosis or self-induced trance combined with suggestive questioning, which then breaks down the barrier between memories and fantasy.
Psychotherapy is nowhere as wide-spread as in America, but it is still somewhat common in other countries as well. So why the difference?
What comes out of psychotherapy is mostly the belief system that the patient and especially the therapist have put in it in the first place.
So how did these beliefs start?
In all likelihood and with the exception of the Christian Zionist rapture movement, they were not a deliberately created disinformation campaign, as some suggest, rather they are a consequence of the schizophrenic national security politics.
It probably started with the Manhattan Project. After WWII the secrecy and deceptions of it was taken over into other, now cold war, projects.
Military experiments and new technology was now routinely covered up and made into some top secret national security matter. This lead to the first sightings of "UFOs".
When John F. Kennedy was murdered and during the subsequent cover-up by the media, the military deceptions entered into the stage of political schizophrenia. Every informed person was pressured into believing the unbelievable.
Truth had become so twisted, that it seemed no longer to matter at all. It had become totally relative to what the "powers that be" wanted you to believe.
Now combine the culture of deception with the "duck and cover" mentality created in the 60s to enforce paranoid fear of the Soviet Union and then you get, what we have now, a paranoid fear of things that don´t exist and a near inability to confront the real problems and seek reasonable solutions.
Sure there are financial elites with agendas opposed to the common good of most nations. But those elites are neither aliens, nor are they all powerful.
They do have influence within governments and parliaments, bribing and blackmailing everyone they can.
But then, not everybody can be bribed.
They own a lot of media and can influence, hire and fire editors for their compliance or non-compliance.
But still, truth has a habit of coming out through the cracks.
National intelligence organisations are said to be instruments of the ruling financial elites.
And yes they are.
But there are still dissidents, whistle blowers and defectors, who have come forth and become agents of truth and justice.
While the paranoid American mind-set was not deliberatly created by the financial elites, it sure is now used by their agents to spread disinformation and unproven rumors in order to introduce a learned helplessness into the population.
This particualar learned helplessness tells you that whatever powers there are behind the scenes of big politic, they are invincible.
And this is the most egregious deception of them all, a myth created for the mildly paranoid, by the intensely paranoid, to keep the former distracted and helpless against the latter.

In his newest post he explains how extraordinary it is, that the mainline media discusses Jimmy Carter´s book.
Harriet Beecher Carter
The fact that Jimmy Carter is allowed to appear on the mainstream media and mention Israel and apartheid in the same sentence is something of a miracle, and represents a sea change in the representation of Israel in the United States (of course, as I’ve mentioned before, this comparison is unfair . . . to the white South Africans).
Until recently, you’d be more likely to see hard-core porn on the American mainstream media than you would be able to obtain a smidgeon of truth about Israel. Now that the American Establishment – you know, the guys Noam says rule the world – have belatedly awakened to the fact that they are on the verge of losing trillions of dollars due to American official support for the racist tribal policies of the Zionists who run Israel and have taken over the American government, the taboo on truth about Israel has been ordered to be at least partially lifted.
Will Carter’s book, “Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid”, become the “Uncle Tom's Cabin” of the Palestinian people? It is commonly acknowledged now that the American Civil War was fought primarily for economic reasons, while justified on the moral grounds of eliminating slavery.
Of course Harriet Beecher Stowe´s book was a romanticized version of the ugly reality of slavery. Black civil right movements today are not overly fond of it.
In the same way is Carter´s book a sanitized version of the reality in Palestine. He expressedly denies, that Israel practices Apartheid even in Israel proper, although we know, that there are several laws discriminating Israeli Arabs besides the institutional discrimination, which exists and is not put into law.
Popular uprisings in the Middle East, caused largely by the control of the American government by Zionists (culminating in the ZOG comprising Bush and the Zionist-controlled Democrats), will cost the American Establishment much of its wealth, making it necessary to solve the Zionist problem by putting Israel in its (small) place and finally granting the Palestinians a state in the entire West Bank and Gaza Strip (a square inch less won’t solve the problem).
Justifying the protection of the contents of your wallet by doing the ‘right thing’ will require a new emphasis on the injustice that racist tribal Zionism is doing to the Palestinians, and to Arabs and Muslims generally.
Now you are called a ‘racist’ if you even dare to mention the obvious facts about the ZOG and its horrible effects on Arabs and Muslims around the world (in my view, criticizing anti-Zionists as racists for complaining about Israel and its American supporters is like calling critics of Nazi Germany anti-Aryan; in the long run the true anti-racists will be acknowledged as such, and the casters of aspersions which serve to protect oppressors will be known as the real racists).
It will be interesting to see whether criticisms of Zionism and Israel suddenly become fashionable in American life.
When Zionism is being recognized as what it is, a racist ethnic centric movement, coming from the same roots as the Nazi ideology - and b.t.w even from the same country,Austria - not only Palestine, but also the rest of the world will become a more peaceful place.
Of course it will be only a first step. Other anti-human ideologies must be overcome as well, for a lasting peace among the peoples of the world.
"The Al-Sadr Bloc, which holds 30 of the 128 UIA seats in the legislature, has boycotted parliamentary sessions in protest at a meeting between U.S. President George W. Bush and Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki in Amman last November. Six ministers from the Al-Sadr Bloc have also refused to attend cabinet sessions.
The Al-Sadr Bloc’s boycott of parliament and cabinet sessions has not helped resolve Iraq’s problems and has even encouraged the Shias’ rivals, led by Hareth al-Zari, Adnan al-Dulaimi, and Saleh al-Mutlak, to gravitate toward the Al-Sadr Bloc in a strategic move meant to divide the UIA.
The fact that the Al-Sadr Bloc and the leaders of the Sunni minority are in consensus that a timetable should be set for the withdrawal of foreign troops put the two camps in a tactical alliance, but the veteran political leaders of the Shia majority repeatedly expressed concern over this unusual relationship.
In order to prevent the Shia majority from forming a government and taking steps toward democracy, some Iraqi Sunni leaders have taken a number of measures, such as organizing a conference in Istanbul to support Iraqi Sunnis and the fatwas on killing Shias issued by 38 Wahhabi leaders.
Thus, the meeting between the seven Shia political parties and Moqtada Sadr was an effective way to help balance the stances of this young Shia cleric, who is also the leader of the Mahdi Army.
Moqtada Sadr, who has a good understanding of the current political situation and the organized plots hatched by certain elements, has said that his supporters will return to parliament and cabinet sessions if a timetable is set for the withdrawal of foreign troops.
He also totally rejected the proposals to merge the Mahdi Army with Iraq’s armed forces, saying that would only be possible after the withdrawal of U.S. troops."
So Sadr had a quasi alliance with Sunni resistance leaders and needed to be pressured to get back into the fold of the Shia union. This makes it highly unlikely, that his Mahdi army was involved in the mass-murders of Sunnis.
Sadr still refuses to merge his militia with the Iraqi army, which means his people will not be fighting the Sunni resistance.
Also, interesting is that it was exclusively Wahhabi leaders who wrote those anti-Shia fatwas. Wahhabism is a Saudi-Arabian sect which originally was sponsered by British Colonialism.
Through CIA sponsered religous schools in Pakistan it was exported to Afghanistan. There also was a tiny extremist Wahhabi group in Kurdish Iraq under the leadership of the now deceased Zarqawi. They were in constant bloody conflict with the other Kurds and their facilities were destroyed at the beginning of the American invasion.
While the Afghanistan Wahhabis, the Taliban, are fighting the Americans, some of the Saudi Arabian ones under the Saudi princes are still under American control.
Some might think, that the Saudi princes with their lavish un-islamic life-style have no connection to their country´s state religion. But there is evidence to the contrary.
Wayne Madsen writes in his report from January 3, 2007
about the Saudi drug-smuggling connected to Italian intelligence and Russian oligarchs and the Bush crime family and about one of the main-actors Prince Nayif al Saud:
"According to the DEA Report, Nayif, asked by a DEA informant why he sold drugs, responded that "the world is already doomed and that he has been authorized by God to sell drugs."
In a press interview
(quoted by Rasputin on GNN in "The left Gatekeepers")
another Saudi, Prince Mahmoud bin Abdel Aziz,
remembers young Osama floundering when guests questioned him about the interpretation of religious texts.
“Finally, I had to signal with my hands for them to stop it[.]”
So here we have it: Osama bin Laden is an "amateur" in interpreting religious texts, the American allied Saudis are "experts" and according to Prince Nayif, what they believe in are endtime prophesies.
This ties them in quite fine with Christian Zionists, Jewish extremists and some esoteric nut-case religions.
This also ties Wahhabism in with the Straussian neocons, who are themselves secular, but believe that religions are instruments for control used by the rulers ("the wise men") to pit one group against another.
For the Straussians believe that humans are violent by nature and can only be controlled and united when they fight other groups, nations or religions.
Few westerners know that about 20% of Iraqi marriages are Sunni-Shia unions.
Just as few know that Saddam´s Baath party had a large membership of Shia as well as Sunnis and even Christians, like the vice minister.
When Saddam distributed weapons to civilians before the war, he gave them to Sunnis and Shia alike.
I watched a documentary on German TV, where a Shia woman from a poor neighbourhood in Bagdad was interviewed. She, a school teacher, wore traditional Shia clothing and in her free time she trained other religious Shia women in the use of fire arms.
At the beginning of the American occupation of Iraq, right after Bush´s "Mission accomplished", I read articles on Moqtada Sadr and his militia, and how admired he was in the poor areas of Iraq across any sectarian borders.
His people were doing the social work and ran clinics. His organisation was seen as non-corrupt similar to Hizbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Palestine. Even Sunnis had his picture on the wall, especially after he offered to join the resistance in Fallujah.
When the Shia mosque was bombed, it was Sadr who blamed the Americans for it.
It would be very much out of character if it really were Sadr´s militias who were indiscriminately mass-murdering their Sunni neighbours.
According to many Iraqis, while there was a division between Kurds and Arabs in the north of Iraq, there never was a division between Sunnis and Shia before the war.
And although now, the Sadr militias are blamed for the sectarian violence, a few months back there came reports out of Iraq that the violence originated from some Badr brigade units, connected to Ahmed Chalabi, the ex-CIA assassin and neo-con agent responsible for the WMD lies.
In "Crime fighting or Crime Cover-up", the German blogger "Freace" asks if the bombing of the Basra police station really was what we were told in the mainline media.
According to BBC reports, it was apparently the same police building in which last year 2 special unit Brits wearing Arab clothes and driving a car full of explosives had been detained and arrested after they had shot several policemen. The building was then stormed by British troops to free those obviously false flaggers.
This time around, more than a 1000 Brits attacked this one building with only "very few police officers" in it. Then out came those contradicting accounts on the number of prisoners supposedly freed, from 178 to 127 to 76.
Nothing was mentioned as to where the supposedly tortured prisoners were hospitalized, and instead of using the building for other purposes, like a different police unit, it just was blown up.
Could it be that this supposedly rogue police unit was not so rogue after all, but just doing its job in finding evidence and witnesses as to who really is behind the "sectarian violence"?
Whatever the truth is about the Sunni-Shia divide, and the sectarian violence, the only parties profiting from a civil war, are Israel and her Zionist supporters in the west.
The plan to divide Iraq and all the other surrounding countries along sectarian and ethnic lines has been a Zionist dream stated in several policy papers for decades now.
I totally agree with the following editorial from the Institute for Islamic Services:
"The leaking of the videotape of hanging of Saddam and the dialogue that was exchanged between Saddam’s executioners, handpicked by Americans, and the subsequent planting of stories in mainstream media that Saddam's hanging will be seen by Shia's as a welcome sacrifice on one of the Holiest days of Islam was a deliberate act meant to create a backlash amongst Muslims and a Shia-Sunni conflict in the Muslim world.
Americans have perfected the art of movies in which actors act out the pre-scripted scenarios and dialogues. Scenarios and dialogues which will have a certain impact on the minds of the audience.
Saddam was in American custody from the moment he was caught, his trial was an American trial, and his execution was carried out under American supervision. The puppet Maliki government had no say at all in this and as all puppets do, he had to go along with whatever was dictated by the Americans
The selection of the day of Eid-ul-Adha for hanging, the videoing, the pre-scripted “taunts” by hired hangmen, and the release of the video had the goal of creating a division between Shia and Sunni, and angering the Muslim youth in Europe and elsewhere.
Americans want to get rid of Moqtada Sadr, who stands in their way of delivering Iraq’s oil to the American oil companies, and what a better way to do that then to get the Sunni resistance in Iraq to turn their guns on Moqtada Sadr, rather than fight the Americans. The actors who were given the script to shout “Moqtada, Moqtada” to Saddam during his hanging was to incite Sunni feelings against the Shia. To show that the hanging was an act of Shia vengeance against the Sunni Saddam.
The second reaction that they wanted to achieve was for Muslim youth in Europe and elsewhere to resort to acts of terror. Americans know that Muslim youth is angry and many of them will be outraged and chatter about revenge, which is exactly what the Americans need in their “war on terror”, and to keep Europeans and Americans united in the Crusade against Islam and Muslims.
Muslims must not be stupid and fall into this trap of sectarian violence and acts of revenge."

Amoz Oz is the same Israeli intellectual, who inspite of being considered by some "the Israeli peace camp incorporated" fully supported the last Israeli war against Lebanon.
Only when it was clear that Israel was loosing, did he start to oppose it.
But Amos Oz is not much different from Uri Avnery, who opposed the war from the start, in his opinion that Israel is only doing the bidding of the United States and not the other way around.
My guess is, that both Oz and Avnery, and Noam Chomsky for that matter, sincerely believe this.
To accept that the Israeli government, not the US government, is deliberatly sacrificing the safety of their the Israeli Jewish population, would end their last remnant of trust in Zionism.
But historic documents, like the diarys of earlier Israeli presidents, prove that the real powers within Israel never were interested in a negotiated peace with their neighbours. They also prove, that those leaders deliberately provoked violence from Palestinians and other Arab neighbours against their own population to keep the Israeli society a militaristic one.
The real reason, why most Israelis and Diaspora Jews close their eyes befor these facts, might be the traditional unconditional loyality Jewish people show towards their community and their leaders.
Christians and Muslims, as members of universalist religions, have been taught that loyality must be formost towards God and righteous (divine) principles, loyality must be earned, it should never be given blindly no matter what.
Jews as members of a tribal religion have been taught that loyality towards ones own community transcends any principles. While criticism inside - of leaders and members of the community - is allowed, every one of them must be defended against the outside world, no matter what. And while community members might make "mistakes", they are still of more value than any outsiders.
And when the "mistakes" become so big that they become undeniable and must be admitted towards the outside world, then those admissions must be coupled with blaming outside forces.
And in spite of loosing the religious justification, secular Zionist Jews still cling to this loyality tradition, not realizing that this blind loyality might be in part to blame for historic anti-Jewish persecution.
If one doesn´t distance oneself from thugs one is identified with them.
Some Jewish communities and individuals in the tradition of Moses Mendelsson, (a German-Jewish reformer, a friend of the German playright and philosopher Lessing and the model for Lessings "Nathan, the Wise") strive to embody universal principles in their religious believes.
Those Jews oppose Zionism and support fully the rights of the Palestinians and the neighbouring countries.
But as for now, those reformers are still a minority
