imperialism & war

love your terrorist

he may be your neighbor
He may be the sole survivor






Truth requires no justication. Only lies require justification
This makes it easy to distinguish between the two.
Propaganda is the illusion of truth spun by the whores of deception..Haaq

No news is no good. When a weak foe is comdemned with words that imply power and evil you can bet its a con job. The greater the differance the greater the con. If the strong foe also seeks pity and exaggerates the weak foes danger, you can bet the weak foe's getting hurt.The more often you hear it the worse it is. When this strong foe has the weak foe captive and hidden and its members isolated from eachother, and regards random killing as a weapons test, and has said it will kill any and all of them, you can bet your ass mass murder is happening. No News is no good.

Israel's use of propaganda condemns them. they are ethnic cleansing, a nicer word for murder. From relocation to erasure quicker than the nazi's did it to them. Meaner too. Go figure. Once past the cloud of smoke , the ashkenazi are the thugs described in their own propaganda. terrorist, militant. Weapons of mass destruction and all. Threat to their neighbors? How about the natives??
Feeding the world fiction and seeking sympathy is the worst. Killing cheap labor shows they aren't as thrifty as suspected unnamed sources were said to have thought.
Oh, the natives, what natives??

these are recent headlines.

An IDF investigation committee, headed by Major General Yitzhak Harel, absolved the IDF this week of any responsibility for the death of innocents in the last three incidents, in which altogether 13 Palestinians were killed, including six children and a mother. The incident in Bani Naim was also included in the investigation. The central conclusion of the committee is that "that there were no defects in the procedures for opening fire."

In fact, the IDF doesn't need additional criteria. As Operation Defensive Shield progresses and completes its "pinpoint" missions by assassinating the political, operational and organizational leadership of the Palestinian struggle, the IDF is increasingly positioned in a frontal war against civilians. "The absence of a security record doesn't interest us," said the officer. "Too many terrorists today have no security history."


Ghetto Judenrat members and some other Warsaw Jews had hoped during 1941 and 1942 that, by developing the ghetto as a dependable source of labor, the majority of inhabitants might be saved. By the time of the uprising, however, Jewish assumptions of Nazi rationality had evaporated.

WHY WITH ZERO CHANCE OF FREEDOM. WHY? INSANITY?, RELIGIOUS FANATIC?, SUICIDE? YOU ARE AGAIN BRANDED..MILLITANT, TERRORIST, DIRTY BOMBER, CONSPIRATOR, AND TREATED LIKE LESS THAN NOTHING.??
Here are some who would know how it feels,

Mordechai Tenenbaum was active in the Vilna, Warsaw, and Bialystok underground movements. Tenenbaum was convinced of the Nazis' {{{genocidal intentions}}} at a very early stage. He arrived in Bialystok, Poland, in November 1942, and eventually unified the various underground movements and acquired additional weapons. Tenenbaum's call to arms was preserved in the archive that he established to chronicle the demise of Bialystok Jewry: "Let us fall as heroes, and though we die, yet we shall live."


Abraham Stern, a Polish Jew who left to study at the Hebrew University in Palestine, founded the Fighters for the Freedom of Israel (FFI), a guerrilla organization designed both to promote Jewish emigration to Palestine and secure Israel's independence. Known to the British as the "Stern Gang," the FFI was widely regarded in Britain as one of the most active and extreme groups working for the establishment of a Jewish state.pic

Leaders of Jewish councils, notably Dr. Elchanan Elkes, who headed the Kovno Ghetto in Lithuania, actively supported forest-based partisan units and anti-Nazi underground activity in the ghettos.

Abba Kovner
In 1941 23-year-old artist Abba Kovner was one of the leaders of Ha-Shomer ha-Tsa'ir, a Socialist Zionist youth organization, in Vilna, Lithuania. As the Nazis increased their roundups of Jews, Kovner and others hid in a Dominican convent. When he learned of the killings in the Ponary Forest, Kovner realized the full scope of the Nazi plan--and vowed to fight back.


On January 1, 1942, Kovner warned his people that deportation meant death. He issued a stirring call to Jewish youth to flee and fight, not "to go as sheep to the slaughter." Kovner helped organize a united partisan resistance, and with the death of Yitzhak Wittenberg, he became the commander of the United Partisan Organization (FPO). As the Nazis emptied the Vilna Ghetto of its last Jews in September 1943, Kovner led the escape of his fighters into the Rudninkai Forest, where, as the "Avenger" battalion, they fought on. Kovner lived until 1988.

Another ZOB leader, Reginka Justman, is shot after being stopped while carrying the ZOB's arms cache to a new hiding place; the arms are seized..

Leib Rotblatt was a member of the ZOB (Jewish Fighting Organization), which emerged in the Warsaw Ghetto during the summer of 1942. Members of the organization collected weapons throughout the summer in preparation for a final confrontation with the Nazis. Emanuel Ringelblum's words, written after the brutal Aktion of September 12, 1942, were prophetic for the ZOB. "Never shall the Germans move us from here with impunity," he wrote. "We will die, but the cruel invaders will pay with their blood for ours."

The Warsaw Ghetto uprising remains an immensely important example of heroic Jewish resistance against overwhelming odds.
-



Despite insurmountable odds, Jews nevertheless revolted in ghettos (most notably Warsaw and Bialystok), concentration camps, and death camps. Jews set the Treblinka camp on fire (August 2, 1943), killed 11 SS guards at Sobibˇr (October 14, 1943), and blew up one of the crematoria at Auschwitz (October 7, 1944).
.

Kiddush ha-Hayyim
For centuries, many Jews responded to religious persecution with acts of martyrdom, choosing death rather than renouncing their faith through forced conversion. For centuries, Jews sacrificed their lives for their religion in an act of devotion know as Kiddush ha-Shem (Sanctification of the Name of God).


December 1942: Members of the Siemiatycze (Poland) Group of Jewish resisters kill a Polish peasant and his entire family as retribution for the peasant's capture and betrayal to the Nazis of three Jews.

The poorly armed Jewish fighters, who also lacked military training and battle experience, were outnumbered three-to-one by Nazi forces, who had tanks and cannons. The Jews' "arsenal" consisted mainly of pistols, Molotov cocktails, and a few rifles, which had been smuggled into the ghetto or looted from Germans who were ambushed in January's resistance.


September 1943: Vilna-based partisan Vitka Kempner blows up an electrical transformer located in the city.
