White Genocide in Progress, Self-Hating White Liberals Pitch In

By Mel Goyson

Thanks liberals. The country has gone from 91 percent white to 60 percent white since I was born. The media tells you law and order is the problem and we should be sensitive to psychotic negro mobs of looters. They will destroy everything before they are done, and stupid white sluts will mate with them and produce Morlock babies for the use of the Jews.

MLK was commie fiend. They don't teach you this about him, but he was. He was a Jew-tool, controlled with booze, drugs, and prostitutes. The Jewish media turned him into a hero, and many of us bought it. We never heard the background of the communist story, so who can blame us. We didn't know about the Holodomor and other killing committed by communists. And so, we watched the Chinese communist flag raised in Washington, D.C., and were just a bit confused when a statue to MLK was erected that was the work of a Chinaman. We vaguely considered our vast debt to China. Was this all related somehow?

We didn't know that Jews invented communism as part of a scheme to take over the world, stealing from the white Christian race that they have despised and plotted against for thousands of years. Besides, white people are more capable of idealism than any other people. We go out of our way to help other races to the detriment of our own. We are turned against our parents and sold depravity, liberalism, and tolerance for disgusting perversions.

If we're lucky, we grow up one day and realize the hideous world we've helped create.What kind of America will be left for our children in this wasteland of liberal darkness and dastardly diversity? Do you think that those looters respect the white civilization, as they burn it to the ground, sanctioned by the mayor? These negroes are insane animals, and our police have been put in a position where they can do nothing about this issue. Instead, the media is informing the public that the police are the issue.

Rosa Parks was in that school with MLK. That whole seat on a bus stunt was a performance to fool the public. The USA at that time was a much more orderly place. The cities of America are a nightmare now, Detroit having become the dwelling place of zombies. While Baltimore erupts in chaos, Jade Helm reminds Texans that the DHS has targeted white Christians who believe in traditional values. The DHS and CAIR, the Center for American Islamic Relations, have formed an alliance, just as in Europe, Muslims are being herded into white countries to cause division.

It is also noteworthy that an earthquake and a hurricane heralded the opening of the MLK monument, showing Yahweh's disapproval.

Judaism is behind these things in America. And if you sit still and pretend it's all reality TV that won't eventually crawl into your living room, you are sorely mistaken. This is part of an old plan, being enacted in the USA and in Europe, to replace the white race with blacks and Asians. And it won't stop until you stop them It is up to you, white man, to band together with your brethren and start the white resistance.

Islamists and DHS in Love Affair Over Targeting White Patriots

By Mel Goyson
“Sovereign citizens” are a threat to the federal government, and the DHS and Islamist groups agree, as a recent article about CAIR (Citizens for American Islamist Relations) indicates.
But what are sovereign citizens, really? From what I'm reading, it seems that American Patriots are being increasingly and purposefully confused by the DHS in favor of immigrants and their concerns.
Apparently, any citizen that does not swallow the ludicrous idea that a horde of Muslims placed in America won't cause issues for the resident population is now a terrorist who is mindlessly anti-government.
It's important to recognize the DHS for what it is, a Jewish Supremacist Police Command Center.
And, of course, Jewish groups get almost all DHS contractsIt used to be they got 97%, now it's only 94%--those poor suffering persecuted Jews!
White America--you are ruled by Jews who want to destroy you with enforcement of diversity, affirmative action, immigration, mass media propagandizing, and, increasingly, direct police action.
If that is the position of "sovereign citizens" than I am a sovereign citizen.
Islamists flooding our land, and all aliens improperly allowed in, are a big problem, but don't forget the hidden hand of the Jewish Supremacist making this all happen.
What makes you so gullible? It's white guilt. Time to drop it.

Total Disregard for White Lives in the Zionist Media--WP Reports

By Mel Goyson

The assault on white culture by the Zionist media and other Zionist-controlled institutions is evidenced again in a report by the Washington Post

In what I would argue is an extension of a race war that was promulgated by deliberate misrepresentation of the Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown incidents, and with the help of "Anonymous", the SPLC, Al Sharpton, Cop Block, Frank Ancona (TAKKK Wizard), et. al -- a race war is being carried out largely in conditions of media blackout. This is not surprising given the history of Zionist infiltration of cultures and the subversion of them. 

This is not surprising given that all white European countries are experiencing similar outrages, where they are being informed that the rights of other races and illegal aliens supersede their own.

Furthermore, the media has the legal right to use false propaganda in the USA, and Obama can even kill or disappear citizens legally. This is all part of the white genocide

As Valerie Richardson of the WP reports:

Nobel Prize-winning novelist Toni Morrison says she wants to see an officer shoot an unarmed white teenager in the back before agreeing that the “conversation about race” is over, but she almost certainly already has received her wish.
An analysis released last week shows that more white people died at the hands of law enforcement than those of any other race in the last two years, even as the Justice Department, social-justice groups and media coverage focus on black victims of police force.

Florida Senate Passes Evil Fracking Bill for Saudi Masters

David Mica, Lord of the Frackarinth

Thanks to "support" from the Saudi dark money bribing operationFlorida Petroleum Council, Florida senators were persuaded that voting to secretly poison the drinking water of Floridians so that foreign sheiks could get richer was a good idea. 

This according to an article yesterday in the Miami Herald, which may get edited.

 Florida Petroleum Council has for its lead David Mica, a cross-eyed, corporate nihilist who thinks that water is not a right and people should pay, dearly, for their brief stay upon this planet which is secretly owned and operated by deeply cloaked international bankster mafians. As evidence for this cloaking, Koch-brother controlled think tanks, with Collier family money thrown in,  helped to get bankster-owned operatives elected into office while crypto-Jew Dönmeh Saudis, who are fond of beheading and stoning women, bought out Church of Christ preachers to brainwash hapless gentiles into thinking they were being conservatives by backing the destruction of their own resources.

Foolishly Opposed Fracking

This was all spear-headed by the Bank of England which used Mossad agents to create the Deepwater Horizon false flag and thereafter to purchase lackeys in the form of "fines" overseen by wildly corrupt internationalist thug Eric Holder. These lackeys, including Herschel Vinyard, erstwhile head of the Florida DEP, were placed in states affected by the Deepwater Horizon false flag so that fracking would be more easily approved. This is all part of Agenda 21, a pseudo-environmentalist globalist operation which relies on the global warming myth, created by bought-out scientists, in order to present an appearance of good intentions while the American public is killed off so that the entire continent can be converted into a vast game preserve for the Bilderberg Group. This is even being enshrined in universities as part of the Earth Charter--a sinister program based on so-called "Infinite Principles", such as killing off the "best of the goyim" by proxy as the devil's cookbook, the Talmud, recommends.

After that, it gets complicated, but most long cons do. But it involves former SS, Turkish terrorists, Sayanim, sheister lobbyists, inbred British royals, archons, and homosexual sword swallowers (ok, that part is a joke, I think). Quite the mess!

As you can imagine, it took me over a year of research to get all this. In the meanwhile, I have been harassed, censored, and isolated, set up by intelligence operatives, and have developed strange joint pains.

A giant cloud of fear

The new reality is grim
and there's nowhere to turn for help
By John Kaminski
Worse than methane, worse than chemtrails, worse than the imminent threat of a world war mushrooming from the bombed out cities of the eastern Ukraine, an overwhelmingly ominous cloud of fear hangs over America, and grows ever more palpable with the passing of each increasingly desperate day.
Hope for a decent future recedes like a mirage into a history that has never made sense as our government buys up bullets by the billions, then plans massive terror drills to round up dissidents who protest the awful crimes our leaders eagerly foist on us. It has become ludicrous to think about a happy and productive future.
The Internet is abuzz with dire warnings. Talk show hosts who specialize in disaster predictions are having a field day. With their water shut off in large areas, people are leaving California in droves, and for the moment, little earthquakes caused by fracking shake our lives from one end of the country to the other like some distant rumble of thunder emanating from under the ground.
One must wonder when the big earthquakes will begin.
The government's plan for our future seems best illustrated by the hundreds of dead African migrant corpses floating randomly in the Mediterranean Sea tonight, victims of what the United States did to Libya, when it turned a happy country into a graveyard, a situation which now compels its traumatized inhabitants to gamble their futures upon an unforgiving sea in makeshift boats that often don't float. These luckless peons are trying to flee the chaos of imposed anarchy in an insane attempt to reach countries that don't really want them, desperately trying to stay alive in what for many are the final minutes of their tortured lives.
In their headlong flight from terror, we see our own conundrum, from both sides of a worthless coin.
When the coin comes up heads, we are beleaguered property owners trying to protect what we have built throughout our lives from crazed and starving refugees who speak a language we can't understand and storm across landscapes like plagues of locusts doing whatever is necessary to stay alive. When the coin flips tails, we witness ourselves reduced to frightened animals willing to eat garbage and drink sewage in a terrified world where absolutely no one wants us as their neighbors.
Today in America, we are both defender and invader, trying to keep what we possess, trying to stay alive, and above all, trying our best to understand what is happening to us, all these nightmare forces threatening our lives, but in the end, we don't understand. Even if we haven't yet been driven from our homes, we are already on the run. How can we understand why our own government wants to kill us? What did we ever do to it to deserve that?
Besides not pay attention to the evil that has been wreaked in our name.
In moments like these we may reflect upon the notion of charity toward others that we have so often been prevailed upon to practice by our priests and politicians. They urge us to render aid to the less fortunate than ourselves. Taking that thought a little further, we may now ponder how affirmative action, welfare and the notion of equality have led to nothing but disaster for our formerly safe and secure country, which has been deliberately overwhelmed and destabilized beyond recognition by the importation of dispossessed denizens from around the world.
And like those panicked refugees gambling their lives in an open boat at night on the Mediterranean sea, we can't help but wonder how many more people it will take that we drag into our lifeboat before the boat and us with it sink with a silent finality beneath the ever eroding waves of destiny and political manipulation.
But even worse than that have been the rapacious policies of our country, which we have mostly ignored. We have permitted the criminals who have kidnapped our country to commit crimes against the world, against humanity, and now we have no idea how to stop them. They are out of control, and coming for us next.
The United States has been driven by what is today a clearly revealed Jewish insanity to plunder the planet without thinking, and follow the cockamamie philosophies of superrich psychopaths who are eagerly trying to murder most of the world's population in order to steal what remains of the planet's resources for themselves.
This attitude has left all nations in turmoil and most ordinary families around the world shattered. The basic philosophy of the people who have created this situation is not something you would want to teach your children, if you were an actual human being, that is.
Ask yourself the question: What would you do when confronted by a Mediterranean boat person, on the verge of dying, begging you for food and shelter? Then, question 1a. What would you do with a hundred of them? Or a thousand?
Then, question 2b. What would you do if you WERE a Mediterranean boat person, and had just been turned away from the Greek shore and had no place else to go? Would you steal? Would you kill someone to stay alive? You bet your ass you would.
Now the final question, question 3.
You ARE a Mediterranean boat person, or soon will be, especially if you live in California, but even if you live anywhere in the U.S., will you steal, will you kill someone to stay alive, especially if it's a U.S. soldier who has already passed the Obama test and said he was willing — no, eager even — to kill Americans who have dared to disagree with our beloved president, or even quibble with the head of the Department of Homeland Security, the branch of government that was especially created to protect only Jews?
If you're not willing to kill the soldier who has come to kill you, you must be planning on dying at exactly that point, which each day, seems to become a more likely possibility.
So this is what Obama and Bush have given us, this is what the Jews have given us — permanent, irrevocable destabilization, where the soldiers must kill the people or the people must kill the soldiers. Just what the Jews always wanted, what they have wished for and installed in every country in which they have wrapped their diseased and demented hands around the throats of its people, and they have squeezed those throats without remorse until they have forced every last penny from the hands of those emaciated corpses, corpses that are soon to be ours.
This drill they are about to hold, this Jade Helm exercise? Is it real? How can it not be? They have been preparing it for years. Each of the false flag episodes that started with the Oklahoma City bombing, the massacre of innocents at Waco, the murder of Vicki Weaver, and finally the demolition of the World Trade Center towers and the bombing of the Pentagon, have all been prelude to the mass murder of the American people and most of the people in the world, all because some rich Jews acting in concert with British royalty have decided the world needed a radically smaller human population, and now the systems are in place and the engines are running to make it so.
As I have written before, when the psychotic Jewish braintrust that runs America has had its fill of carnage overseas, after it has subverted, exploited and prostituted every country it can, it will turn on itself and destroy itself in an orgy of self mutilation. You can already see the foreshadowings of this in the tattoos and piercings of Gothic youth titillating themselves on the borderlands of vampiric homicide. But before these Jewish inspired freaks kill themselves, they will kill us, just to prove they can.
This is what the vampire movies are all about. And this will bring the era of peace that Jews and their Talmud brag about, as Hitler rightly predicted, the silent peace of a totally dead planet.
A giant cloud of fear spreads across the deteriorating landscape. This is the result of human hands. No gods or aliens at work here, just human hands, extremely evil human hands.
Until we take steps to eliminate the Jews who control us, and the stranglehold they have on the collective throat of humanity, we have no future at all.
John Kaminski is a writer who lives on the Gulf Coast of Florida, constantly trying to figure out why we are destroying ourselves, and pinpointing a corrupt belief system as the engine of our demise.

Cache of Disappearing "Jade Helm' Article at Veteran's Today--Psyop Extension?

---Things have gotten really strange in "conspiracy land". Veteran's Today is either experiencing actual in-fighting or they are showing they are a part of the PSYOP. You decide--

Robert O'Dowd's article was entirely appropriate for a journal devoted to "clandestine activities"
 by Jim Fetzer

 Inside a closed Walmart in California Something is wrong right here at Veterans Today. A former Marine, who has published many articles here, was slammed by Gordon Duff and by Jim Dean for perpetrating “a hoax” by raising concerns about this mysterious “training op” called JADE HELM. I admire VT and like Gordon personally, although from time to time we have a divergence in our point of view. I have never felt as positive about Jim Dean because, as an old-time reporter and editor, he has come across to me as having an anti-academic prejudice, which I as a former professor have sensed from our initial encounters.

But that doesn’t mean he’s wrong. Robert O'Dowd But let’s consider the case of this article and its author, Robert O’Dowd. Although I had not read any of his work at VT before, I thought it was raising a perfectly appropriate issue as to whether or not JADE HELM, which is an operation that covers at least seven states (and now seems to have expanded to five or six more) could possibly be the cover for imposing martial law under the pretext of conducting operations in urban settings, which are meant to train personnel “for foreign operations”, where nothing about this has struck me as right from the beginning. As a consequence, I was glad to see he had published about it: O'Dowd's article with Editor's Note
But I could hardly believe the response from Gordon and Jim. Not only did they “tag team” Robert and imply that he had been played for a sap but asserted that, “We have checked our sources who would be in a position to know if something like this were going on, and it categorically is not.” The problem with this approach is that we ordinary readers are not in the position to verify “their sources”. This is a classic appeal to authority, where we are supposed to take their word for it. And while I might be disposed to accept those assurances on routine matters, in this instance, the case of JADE HELM is anything but “routine”.

Jim Dean piles on

It further astonished me that Jim Dean would reiterate his and Gordon’s position in both the facebook and ordinary comments sections on O’Dowd’s article, which you can easily confirm for yourself. This left some readers, such as Bonny Amey, at a loss as to exactly what was going on. And, indeed, others expressed concern, even in the ordinary comments section, where O’Dowd (in my view, with complete justification) submitted his resignation as a journalist for VT on facebook, explaining that he did not appreciate being used as a whipping boy for having published “a bogus story”, especially when the facts are still in doubt:

 Jim Dean comment Exchange between Bonnie and O'Dowd Robert O'Dowd's resignation So is this “a bogus story”? The fellow who seems to be arranging this op and speaking about it in public is one Tony Mead, where his characterization of “JADE HELM” is reasonably elaborate, involving the use of Army Green Berets, Navy SEALS and representatives of the other branches of the US military, which suggests that those who have asserted that this only involves “the national guard” appear to be wrong. Indeed, if what he is telling us in this video presentation is correct, then the appeal to “the national guard” is a bogus story, which troubles me because I heard it from Gordon Duff. But perhaps he had not looked into the situation deeply enough.
If Gordon had not looked into the situation “deeply enough”, however, then it makes no sense for him to have attacked Robert’s article and assailed him as a dupe who was pushing “a bogus story”. I was troubled enough by all of this that I brought together a group of four guests, including Terri from Nebraska (who had sent me many links), Robert O’Dowd himself (as the one who had raised this issue on VT), Preston James (whom I regard as one of the most astute intellects I have ever known), and last but not least (as a late arrival), Dennis Cimino (with whom I have co-authored multiple articles here) to try to sort all this out:

While I think we made progress in sorting this out, none of our considerations supported the idea that this was “a bogus story” and that no one should be concerned. It came as news to me when my producer, Chance, observed that a parallel operation is taking place in Canada under the name of “Maple Resolve”, which includes closing some 133 Target Stores, not merely for the two months the operation is officially supposed to run but for nine months at the cost of some 17,000 jobs, where their former employees are even being encouraged to find other lines of work. In my opinion, this alters the equation and leaves no doubt:

What conclusion should we draw?



Several features of “the big picture” strike me as enormously important. Walmart and Target are stores with mass appeal for the middle and lower class of both Canadian and American society. That some 15 Walmarts should be taken over in the United States alone and now another 133 Targets in Canada is alarming!  There is nothing “bogus” about this story. And other sources, such as David Hodges’ “Common Sense Show” have made equally telling observations about the redistribution of resources for a purported “training op” when it entails the dismissal of 17,000 employees, who no doubt are being left in desperate straits: 

So what conclusions do I draw from my investigations to this date? Gordon Duff and Jim Dean were wrong to censor Robert O’Dowd, whose article was entirely appropriate for a journal devoted to “clandestine activities”. JADE DOWD is not a “training op” but something far more serious. When you calculate the profits per store to Walmart and to Target, they are taking an enormous hit, which can only be for some transcendent purpose that override “the conduct of business as usual”. (We are talking about billions of dollars in lost profits, not to mention the loss of highly qualified, experienced personnel to stock products, to resupply those facilities and to process check outs and deliveries.) As an investigative journalist for Veterans Today, I am committed to doing my best to expose the truth, even when it conflicts with the views of Gordon Duff and Jim Dean, who are at liberty to deal with me as severely as they dealt with Robert O’Dowd. I am committed to serve my nation and its best interests, which I do, come what may.

Oskar Gröning Trial: "Coincidentally" on Hitler's Birthday

In a desperate attempt to continue their plan of white genocide, the Jewish media has dredged up a 93-year old willing to stand trial in a totally controlled environment, and admit to complicity in crimes as an "accountant" at Auschwitz. This after his case had been dismissed back in 1978, perhaps because he fed them what they wanted to propagate their myths. According to Zionist-controlled wikipedia, the trial is "coincidentally" on Hitler's birthday.

Despite feverish new claims to the contrary,  Oskar Gröning never used the words "gas chambers" in a documentary “Auschwitz: The Nazis and ‘The Final Solution".  According to one analysis: "it is clear that Groening was talked into making his remarks in some type of belief that he would not be prosecuted if he admitted being at the camp."

He was quoted to have said: “I see it as my task, now at my age, to face up to these things that I experienced and to oppose the Holocaust deniers who claim that Auschwitz never happened. And that’s why I am here today. Because I want to tell those deniers: I have seen the gas chambers, I have seen the crematoria, I have seen the burning pits—and I want you to believe me that these atrocities happened. I was there.”

But actually said: “I see it as my task, now at my age, to face up to these things that I experienced and to oppose the Holocaust deniers who claim that Auschwitz never happened. And that’s why I am here today. Because I want to tell those deniers: I have seen the crematoria, I have seen the burning pits—and I want you to believe me that these atrocities happened. I was there.”

This lie is included in the wikipedia from 2009.

This is in line with many other amendments that were added to "proofs" of gas chambers and other atrocities which have been caught and cataloged over the years.  


Meanwhile, no Jews have stood trial for the killing of 66 million whites under communism till this day, and they were the allies of the USA in the WWII. "Coincidence"?

Tolerance of the Third Kind

If I'm going to be tolerant
with love in my mind
should I not first
learn to tolerate my own kind?

If I'm going to targeted
as the cause of all strife
the cause being being born white,
why can I not ask,
on fear of my life,
what makes your birth
exclude you from a history
of exploitation and guilt,
how was it these things
were not sewn into that quilt?

If I can find the hand
paying these messages to be writ
into the minds of those
who now deem themselves unfit,
and demand my conformity
under threat of a label
that defies logic and proof
or paints me into the corner
of some raving goof,
while the TV reinforces
their faith in the lies
five hours a day
and makes them their saviors

Where is the place
they can remember their past
without a scaffold black,
or in a noose, or a trail of crying
red skin, or six million Jews,
but no mention ever of Bolshevik
crimes and how racial
the nature of those communist times.

A Curse on All Enemies of the White Race

Being a people capable of greatness
in many areas we have been great
in our tolerance of the lesser peoples
and I am not saying lesser races
but lesser peoples
who envy the white race
instead of being secure in their race
that have flooded our nations
in search of a plunder and practicing rape
enabled by our governments which have sold
out to the Jew and we have done
this in part because of our love
for order but also in part because
of the slavish willful ignorance
of those of us who still felt comfortable
in their pampered lives enough
to judge dimly the correct vision
of the lower white classes in their understanding
of the lesser races that they were forced
to live among and therefore knew better
the race traitor whites told themselves
that they were educated enlightened
and believed in progress
but they will understand too late
that progress is code for the destruction
of white civilization and the white race
although Jewish college professors
openly admit this is the goal
that they cherish and Jewish Bolsheviks
in the past practiced genocide
of the white Christian race openly
and systematically and in a manner
far exceeding that which the Jewish
liars later accused Hitler of committing
upon the Jews in order to cover
for their crimes and silence criticism
as they carried out their New World Order
anti-life anti-nature schemes
if you hate the white race
your inferiority is showing
especially if you are feeding
off the white race for survival
those who are secure in their non-whiteness
do not hate the white race
nor do they seek to supplant or feed
off the white race
they are grateful for what the white
race has provided the world
and they want to cooperate
in the future progress that the technologically
astute white race can provide
if no longer subdued by Jewish usury
and the creation of fifth columns
in white nations aimed at white genocide
or civil race wars by which the Jew
thinks to profit
this calamity must be undone
and so it will be undone
and that means all enemies
of the white race
shall be once and forever
finally destroyed
and their plans shall
be a lament in their minds
and these see before them
the annihilation of their false hopes
of being like unto the white man
for there are none like unto
the white man
and the white man
as every other race
has its place and its strengths
and these have been ordered
by operations beyond the control
of the Jew or any human power
and the pathways
shall be made straight
either by consent or conquest
it shall be so

Misraelbe With friends like Israel...

    - Foreword -
If I told you that the AARP was the nation's most powerful lobby, you would probably not be surprised.  If I said that the National Rifle Association and Organized Labor were the third or fourth most powerful lobbies, you would likely agree.  But would you be surprised to know that the second most powerful lobby in the U.S. is a lobby that advocates solely for the benefit of another country, often at the expense of our own?  Below is a recent Working Paper courtesy of Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government about the Israel Lobby.  Whether you agree with the authors' conclusions or not, as they say in the article, the "facts are not in serious dispute among scholars."
A few of the interesting points from the article (there are many more):
  • The U.S. gives $3 billion annually to Israel, or $500 per Israeli citizen
  • While Israel was an asset in the Cold War, it is now a strategic liability
  • Israel spies on the U.S. more aggressively than any other ally
From Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government's website, what follows are select paragraphs from a 2006 paper by University of Chicago's John Mearsheimer and Harvard University's Stephen Walt.
A rebuttal paper by Israel defender and attorney Alan Dershowitz of O. J. Simpson fame can be found on the same website.  In his 2006 memoir The Best Defense, Dershowitz notes that "Almost all of my clients have been guilty."  Based on the available evidence, we can now count Israel among his [guilty] clients.
Expanding on their paper, Mearsheimer and Walt have published a book, 'The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy,' a New York Times Best Seller.  If you'd rather not read the excerpts below, YouTube offers the following video from Berkeley's Conversations With History series featuring both Mearsheimer and Walt.  If the embedded video below fails to display, please search YouTube for Mearsheimer Walt Conversations with History.

Since the October War in 1973, Washington has provided Israel with a level of support dwarfing the amounts provided to any other state. It has been the largest annual recipient of direct U.S. economic and military assistance since 1976 and the largest total recipient since World War II. Total direct U.S. aid to Israel amounts to well over $140 billion in 2003 dollars. Israel receives about $3 billion in direct foreign assistance each year, which is roughly one-fifth of America’s foreign aid budget. In per capita terms, the United States gives each Israeli a direct subsidy worth about $500 per year. This largesse is especially striking when one realizes that Israel is now a wealthy industrial state with a per capita income roughly equal to South Korea or Spain.
As discussed below, Washington has given Israel wide latitude in dealing with the occupied territories (the West Bank and Gaza Strip), even when its actions were at odds with stated U.S. policy. Moreover, the Bush Administration’s ambitious strategy to transform the Middle East - beginning with the invasion of Iraq - is at least partly intended to improve Israel’s strategic situation. Apart from wartime alliances, it is hard to think of another instance where one country has provided another with a similar level of material and diplomatic support for such an extended period. America’s support for Israel is, in short, unique.

(London Review of Books - abridged, non-Adobe version)


Saying that Israel and the United States are united by a shared terrorist threat has the causal relationship backwards: rather, the United States has a terrorism problem in good part because it is so closely allied with Israel, not the other way around. U.S. support for Israel is not the only source of anti-American terrorism, but it is an important one, and it makes winning the war on terror more difficult. There is no question, for example, that many al Qaeda leaders, including bin Laden, are motivated by Israel’s presence in Jerusalem and the plight of the Palestinians. According to the U.S. 9/11 Commission, bin Laden explicitly sought to punish the United States for its policies in the Middle East, including its support for Israel, and he even tried to time the attacks to highlight this issue.
[Another] reason to question Israel’s strategic value is that it does not act like a loyal ally. Israeli officials frequently ignore U.S. requests and renege on promises made to top U.S. leaders (including past pledges to halt settlement construction and to refrain from “targeted assassinations” of Palestinian leaders). Moreover, Israel has provided sensitive U.S. military technology to potential U.S. rivals like China, in what the U.S. State Department Inspector-General called “a systematic and growing pattern of unauthorized transfers.” According to the U.S. General Accounting Office, Israel also “conducts the most aggressive espionage operations against the U.S. of any ally.” In addition to the case of Jonathan Pollard, who gave Israel large quantities of classified material in the early 1980s (which Israel reportedly passed onto the Soviet Union to gain more exit visas for Soviet Jews), a new controversy erupted in 2004 when it was revealed that a key Pentagon official (Larry Franklin) had passed classified information to an Israeli diplomat, allegedly aided by two AIPAC officials. Israel is hardly the only country that spies on the United States, but its willingness to spy on its principal patron casts further doubt on its strategic value.

The “shared democracy” rationale is also weakened by aspects of Israeli democracy that are at odds with core American values. The United States is a liberal democracy where people of any race, religion, or ethnicity are supposed to enjoy equal rights. By contrast, Israel was explicitly founded as a Jewish state and citizenship is based on the principle of blood kinship. Given this conception of citizenship, it is not surprising that Israel’s 1.3 million Arabs are treated as second-class citizens, or that a recent Israeli government commission found that Israel behaves in a “neglectful and discriminatory” manner towards them.

Similarly, Israel does not permit Palestinians who marry Israeli citizens to become citizens themselves, and does not give these spouses the right to live in Israel. The Israeli human rights organization B’tselem called this restriction “a racist law that determines who can live here according to racist criteria.” Such laws may be understandable given Israel’s founding principles, but they are not consistent with America’s image of democracy.

The explanation lies in the unmatched power of the Israel Lobby. Were it not for the Lobby’s ability to manipulate the American political system, the relationship between Israel and the United States would be far less intimate than it is today.

The core of the Lobby is comprised of American Jews who make a significant effort in their daily lives to bend U.S. foreign policy so that it advances Israel’s interests. Their activities go beyond merely voting for candidates who are pro-Israel to include letter-writing, financial contributions, and supporting pro-Israel organizations. But not all Jewish-Americans are part of the Lobby, because Israel is not a salient issue for many of them. In a 2004 survey, for example, roughly 36 percent of Jewish-Americans said they were either “not very” or “not at all” emotionally attached to Israel.

Jewish-Americans have formed an impressive array of organizations to influence American foreign policy, of which AIPAC is the most powerful and well-known. In 1997, Fortune magazine asked members of Congress and their staffs to list the most powerful lobbies in Washington.  AIPAC was ranked second behind the American Association of Retired People (AARP), but ahead of heavyweight lobbies like the AFL-CIO and the National Rifle Association. A National Journal study in March 2005 reached a similar conclusion, placing AIPAC in second place (tied with AARP) in the Washington’s “muscle rankings.”

It is not surprising that Israel and its American supporters want the United States to deal with any and all threats to Israel’ security. If their efforts to shape U.S. policy succeed, then Israel’s enemies get weakened or overthrown, Israel gets a free hand with the Palestinians, and the United States does most of the fighting, dying, rebuilding, and paying.
Furthermore, the Lobby’s campaign for regime change in Iran and Syria could lead the United States to attack those countries, with potentially disastrous effects. We do not need another Iraq. At a minimum, the Lobby’s hostility toward these countries makes it especially difficult for Washington to enlist them against al Qaeda and he Iraqi insurgency, where their help is badly needed.
But there is a ray of hope. Although the Lobby remains a powerful force, the adverse effects of its influence are increasingly difficult to hide. Powerful states can maintain flawed policies for quite some time, but reality cannot be ignored forever. What is needed, therefore, is a candid discussion of the Lobby’s influence and a more open debate about U.S. interests in this vital region. Israel’s well-being is one of those interests, but not its continued occupation of the West Bank or its broader regional agenda. Open debate will expose the limits of the strategic and moral case for one-sided U.S. support and could move the United States to a position more consistent with its own national interest, with the interests of the other states in the region, and with Israel’s long-term interests as well.
