Zionism, A Crash Course for Anyone Wanting to Know the Truth

For everyday people, the lectures and writings of Miko Peled (http://mikopeled.com/) are essential to begin to understand what the situation in Israel is really about. For anyone here interested in learning the truth, this "introductory course" will take about an hour. I have added a test question for your consideration, after completing this college level course.

http://youtu.be/0R550KwBOcs begin at the 7:21 mark, where the learning begins.

TEST QUESTION: "How are they not ashamed?"

Here is the full video, for anyone interested, although I would suggest beginning around the 7:21 mark.

I went to Barnes & Noble yesterday to buy

"The General's Son". Would you believe I was told that NO Barnes & Noble keeps it in stock; that it has to be special ordered and paid for up front, INCLUDING SHIPPING, since they won't have it shipped to the stores?

I also checked the local library.... Nope. They don't have it either and neither does any other library in the area.

Is it just me, or is there something wrong with this picture?

Anyone want to take a shot at answering

the Test Question?

Ethnic Cleansing and Israel's Racist Discourse

VR is correct. I had posted this article under another thread last week but here it is again in case anyone missed it.

Ethnic Cleansing and Israel's Racist Discourse

Any act of collective punishment — whether ethnic cleansing or genocide or any other — is often preceded and or adjoined by a racist discourse that dehumanizes the victim and justifies the crime on baseless grounds, a concoction of lies and fibs that may appeal to national or religious psyches, but fails the test of law, morality or basic human norms and expectations.

Without such discourse, which depicted the original inhabitants of Palestine as cancerous, subhuman and a nuisance in the face of civilization and progress — as defined by the founders of the Zionist movement — it would not have been possible to carry out a systematic campaign of murder and ethnic cleansing in 1947-48, which saw the killing of an estimated 13,000 Palestinians, the forcible eviction of 850,000 and the depopulation and subsequent destruction of nearly 500 villages and localities. Without such a racist discourse it would have been difficult, to say the least, to carry out scores of preempted massacres, including Deir Yassin, Tantoura, Abbasiyya, Beit Daras, Bir Al-Saba’, Haifa and so forth.

The unfortunate reality is that Israel’s campaign of ethnic cleansing, though it might have changed tactics and pace throughout the years, has never stopped and is now more active than it has been for decades. It’s also clear that the adjacent racist discourse that made such a policy sustainable for six decades is also at work, making advocates of war crimes heroes in the eyes of most Israelis.

They only need

to look at the Palestinians as sub-human.

.

Precisely.

In Miko's speech he told a story about his sister who's child was killed in a suicide bombing. So I looked her up. Her name is Nurit Peled-Elhanan and she apparently has done research and published a book about how Palestinians are systematically dehumanized in israeli textbooks. She seems to be in accord with Miko.

Check out one of her interviews here for a taste:

Of course, it doesn't hurt when you're the 'chosen' people, either.

(And I don't mean that as pertaining to the jews exclusively. It is of course a tool employed by nearly all religions, races and nation states.)

Thanks

for the link

Outstanding!

Everyone should see this video--a real eye-opener!

Thank You Nonna!!!

As you know, I am a huge Miko fan. Over a year ago, I posted a UTUBE video of him called "The General's Son." I noticed today that different versions of that UTUBE have over 100,000 and 200,000 views. People are waking up.

I believe Ron Paul would very much approve of Miko's life work. They both believe in reaching people's hearts and educating their minds. It is the only way we will evolve a higher humanity on this planet. Ron Paul is often misunderstood and taken out of context with regard to the Middle
East. Of course he is against foreign aid and intervention. However, he said, "Palestine is basically a concentration camp." I would like to believe that the great hearts of both these men hope, though the process is slow, that humanity will wake up even if it is one person at a time and live by The Golden Rule...not laugh at it.

Nobody should live in a concentration camp environment. Another great man said, "If you harm one hair on the heads of these little ones...." And yet, so much of the world seems not to care.

Again, Nonna. : ) ...I am proud to know you as my friend.

fonta

It was YOU, fonta, who introduced me to Miko with

the YouTube posted about a year ago! I was so impressed by him and I am thrilled to see you back on DP!!!!!

Thank you for all you have contributed to this community. I look forward to hearing more from you, especially about how Dr. Paul has been taken out of context and his words skewed to suit an agenda that would make Dr. Paul cringe.

I am proud that an insightful, intelligent person like you calls me friend. :D

Fonta

Thank you. While listening to this I began wondering if this might be the General's Son as I remembered watching it.

Thanks Nonna!

Good stuff.

so glad to see this on the front page!

This is THE CENTRAL ISSUE in the world and I'm so happy to see it get attention.

I hope the people of the DP will read more and research Zionism and how it applies to American politics, European politics, and banking policies. Research how "Israel" was created. trace it back. Look into Balfour. Follow the money!

At their inceptions, the #Liberty, #OccupyWallStreet and #TeaParty movements all had the same basic goal... What happened?

Here's what he was talking about at that point:

"De-Arabizing the history of Palestine is another crucial element of the ethnic cleansing. 1500 years of Arab and Muslim rule and culture in Palestine are trivialized, evidence of its existence is being destroyed and all this is done to make the absurd connection between the ancient Hebrew civilization and today’s Israel. The most glaring example of this today is in Silwan, (Wadi Hilwe) a town adjacent to the Old City of Jerusalem with some 50,000 residents. Israel is expelling families from Silwan and destroying their homes because it claims that king David built a city there some 3000 years ago. Thousands of families will be made homeless so that Israel can build a park to commemorate a king that may or may not have lived 3000 years ago. Not a shred of historical evidence exists that can prove King David ever lived yet Palestinian men, women, children and the elderly along with their schools and mosques, churches and ancient cemeteries and any evidence of their existence must be destroyed and then denied so that Zionist claims to exclusive rights to the land may be substantiated." http://mikopeled.com/2011/12/20/ethnic-cleansing-of-invented...

Does this address the German Zionists who predated the Jewish ..

..ones?

These were non-Jewish Germans who were members of the World Zionist Organiztion and pro-Zionist and pre-dated the Jewish zionist emigration movement.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-22276494

Does topic this address them? Or just Jewish zionists?

Thanks for the interesting link.

In answer to your question, no, it's "a crash course".

Check out what a Holocaust survivor has to say on the subject: http://youtu.be/-2P_jIJPqto Maybe that's what the World Zionist Organization was about?

An honest Israeli Jew tells the Real Truth about Israel

Thank you for posting Nonna! I was just going to post this one from
Miko Peled:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etXAm-OylQQ

Listening to the link you provided now.

Can't help but reflect on how much of the "education" going on there is going on here. I loved when he said about how his Israeli mother kept repeating her first hand account over the years and he finally realized that the truth is in the personal story and not in the national narrative.

Go ahead and post the link you found and even label it as Part 2 of this post, if you want. Everyone should be posting things here that wake up the deluded, misinformed of the world.

Miko is truly a hero--

the courage to stand up against *one's* own--

he's got it in spades--

founding father type courage--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--
