Best Prescription for Wooing Voters in Israel: Spill More Palestinian Blood

It is well-known in Israel that the popularity of any candidate for Prime Minister is measured in proportion to the number of Palestinians he has killed and the amount of blood he has shed.

Thus was the case with many big names in the history of the apartheid entity who reached the helm of power and became Prime Ministers. We all remember big names in Israel’s history, who had been genocidal murderers and child-killers, only to assume the leadership of the Zionist regime, people like Menachem Begin, Isaac Rabin, Ariel Sharon and Ehud Barak. Each of these celebrated and decorated figures actually had a huge amount of innocent blood on their hands and are likely to languish in hellfire for thousands or millions of years.

We all remember how Ehud Barak, for example,  sought to woo Jewish voters to vote for him by gasconading about killing three PLO leaders in Beirut and describing to them in graphic details the moment of murdering them. The “election advertisement” was very effective, leaving strong and instantaneous impressions on viewers who subsequently elected him Prime Minister.

  In short, the more Arab blood you shed in Israel, the more votes you will receive from  Jewish voters.  You shouldn’t expect to read this in the New York Times, Washington Post, or find it on CNN, ABC, CBS or even BBC. But it is a deniable fact.

 Election time is bloodshed season

Israel, a criminal state par excellence, murders and maims mostly innocent Palestinians 365 days per year. Murdering Palestinians has always been Israel’s modus operandi and ultimate policy.

Hence, it is safe to say that the bloody repression of Palestinians, including murdering children and demolishing Arab homes and businesses for a variety of concocted reasons, is the best and most effective method of gaining popularity and boosting an incumbent Prime Minister’s chances for getting re-elected. Otherwise, no “normal”  country would elect and re-elect a certified war criminal several times, as was the case with Netanyahu, Sharon and Barak.  Interestingly, this ghoulish and evil anomaly tells us much about the collective psychosis haunting most Zionist Jews.

Truman called as it was

Talking publicly about this particular matter, namely the sadistic propensity of Zionist Jews to murder Palestinians is a serious taboo in the West, especially in the media.

None the less, we must call the spade a spade, especially when we see the proverbial implement in the hands of our grave-diggers, and I am not speaking metaphorically.

The genocidal crimes of the Hagana, Irgun and other Zionist paramilitary gangs against Palestinian villagers in 1948, which forced hundreds of thousands of Palestinians to flee their ancestral homeland, caught the attention of President Harry Truman. In a letter to Eleanor Roosevelt, Truman wrote that “Jews are like all underdogs. When they get on top they are just as intolerant and as cruel as the people were to them when they were underneath.” These are Truman’s words, not mine.  

Now, I have a question for honest people around the world. Can any politician or governmental official in the US, Britain or France echo Truman’s iconic words and get away with impunity? I think we all know the answer rather too well.

But the evil treatment meted out to the Palestinians has, more or less,   remained unchanged ever since the Truman era. Hence, his description of the Zionists should be as relevant today as it was when he wrote his famous letter to Eleanor Roosevelt.

Since murdering Palestinian journalist Sherine Abu Akleh, , apparently with malice aforethought a few weeks ago, the Israel occupation army stepped up its erstwhile shoot-to-kill policy against mainly unprotected Palestinian civilians

More bloodshed expected as Israeli elections near

 Observers in occupied Palestine expected the genocidal Israeli army to murder more Palestinians, especially children and youngsters. In fact, it seems the spate of murderous killings has already started in earnest. On Friday, Mohammed Hamad, 16, was shot and wounded near the town of Silwad, near Ramallah in the central  West Bank. Eyewitnesses described the crime as “cold-blooded murder.” The Israeli occupation refused to elaborate on the latest murder. The Israeli army normally doesn’t investigate its murderous crimes unless a given victim’s death raised an international outcry like  Sherin Abu Akleh, who was killed by Israeli occupation troops in Jenin several weeks ago.  So far, the Israeli army has refused to admit killing Akleh.

Last week, a murderous settler stabbed to death Hasan Harb, 28, in full view of Israeli army who were looking on passively, refusing to stop the settler or even arrest him. According to the Israeli media, the army has not opened an investigation into “the incident.”

Less than 24 hours later. Trigger-happy Israeli soldiers shot and killed another Palestinian youngster for allegedly hurling stones on them. I am sure that when this article is posted, more innocent Palestinians will have been killed by the Gestapo-like soldiers. 

Meanwhile, the Israeli military spokesman continues to twist the truth by referring the occupation army’s murderous episodes in the West Bank as “clashes,” giving the impression that Palestinian victims of Israel’s daily atrocities were using fire-arms against the heavily-armed crack soldiers.  Predictably, the usually unsuspecting western news agencies, especially AP, would take the twisted Zionist narrative at face value, swallowing it, hook, line and sinker, thus promoting Zionist mendacity and disinformation.

The three wise monkeys

As to the Palestinian Authority (PA), it is behaving very much like the three wise monkeys, not hearing,  seeing or speaking. The PA controlled media normally tersely announce the daily toll of Israel’s unrelenting crimes, but nothing else. Which suggests that the authoritarian Palestinian leadership, too, views the sanctity of Palestinian very lightly.

Despite the daily  Israeli atrocities of innocent Palestinians, the PA is maintaining a strong security coordination regime with the occupation army, which obliges the Palestinian security apparatus to collaborate with Israel in “combating terror,” a vague term interpreted by Israel “providing information that would commit the PA security apparatus, which would lead to the arrest, neutralization or liquidation” of anti-occupation activists.

According to security understandings between the PA and Israel, the main function and raison detre of the PA security agencies is to fight Palestinian resistance groups, particularly Hamas.

In this context, the PA has been waging an open war on pro-Hamas activism in the West Bank, including in universities, professional associations and the media.

PA leader, 86, has not held presidential and legislative elections since he was elected PLO president in 2005, following the death of Yasser Arafat a  few months earlier. (end)
