Letter to Palestinian Think Tank

May 29, 2008.

The following follow-up comment, posted by Project Humanbeingsfirst here, to its article “Celebrating Israel’s 60th Birthday in the 60th year of the Nakba” may be of some interest to your think-tankers. Perhaps you can reprint it with the above title.

I happen to be a Zionist. I’m a Zionist by dint of the fact that I live here and constitute part of Hebrew culture, even if I am opposed to the present regime and criticize it harshly. ... . For now, I’m on the losing side of this struggle, therefore I’m defined as anti-Zionist. So be it.” [Interview 'A life less ordinary', Haaretz, Dec. 10, 2007]

Thank you for that clarification – to both, the above commenter, and posthumously, to Prof. Baruch Kimmerling.

And therein lies the quintessential component of the endless trail of red herrings that almost all on the proverbial “LEFT” in the West spin in support of Zion.

The logical follow-up question to ask then, is to which past and future “regime” aren't they opposed to in Israel in order to not be “defined as anti-Zionist”? Then we can further examine that regime and dismantle that too.

It is worthwhile remembering that powerful wordsmithing is a crucial strength of Zion - many of its exponents happen to be superb linguists not just accidentally! It is best captured in this pithy saying of Golda Meir:

We can forgive them for killing our children, we cannot forgive them for making us kill theirs.”

Indeed, it is not insignificant that in Arabistan (i.e., the abode of the Arabs), the following bit of wisdom is not un-common – they will first plan to kill you with a design most brutal, and then come to your funeral lamenting: “We can forgive them for killing our children, we cannot forgive them for making us kill theirs.”

If interested, see Chapter 3 of Prisoners of the Cave for how it is all put together – the moralists and the terrorists united in a common cause, the two antipodes with all the rest of Zionists in between: http://prisonersofthecave.blogspot.com/2007/04/chapter-3.html.

Acquiring a penetrating perspective of how Zionistan has been intellectually orchestrated piece-meal with deception as the key weapon system of choice – wage war by way of deception – is a prerequisite in order to even begin to deal with any sort of solution-space that rescues the Palestinians on their own lands.

Palestinians as a peoples will surely survive and even thrive in their forced Diaspora, just as the Jews before them – at least those who are able to escape from the Concentration Camps in what remains of their checkered-lands. But to effectively stop the systematic barbaric conquests of their ancestral homes and the continuous shattering of their tabula rasa (or what little might remain of it), requires a massive and overwhelming “shock and awe” war-front to be opened up in the intellectual space.

A conquest and an oppression originally begun in the intellectual space, will also only be concluded there. The Zionist masterminds apparently understand this far better than the Palestinians. And therefore, always appear to be better prepared across the board. The Palestinians to this day, sadly, unprepared for the Nakba as they were, have evidently mainly excelled in vociferous laments, and in reacting – rather than in astutely anticipating, and preempting!

Anecdotally, in 1967 after the onset of the second Nakba, another Pakistani, a far more distinguished and astute one, wrote to Yaser Arafat to not engage the Israelis by firing Katsuya rockets at them – but to understand that the Jews barely escaping their Holocaust will always garner the Western world's sympathy ex post facto, in their disingenuous vociferous clamoring 'they are doing another Holocaust on us' as they conquer more and more in response to the Katsuyas. That instead, the Palestinians should engage the Zionists by astutely comprehending their antagonists strengths, and their weaknesses (and not just in military terms). That the best and most efficacious defense against them was Gandhian means – effective surrogates and "frontier-post" as they were of the superpowers. He was entirely ignored.

And yet this Pakistani persisted – being a close friend and compatriot of Edward Said that he was – and with every incremental fait accompli gained by Israel in reaction to PLO's Katsuya rockets, he reminded them again, and again. And he remained ignored – to this very day – even posthumously.

And with every new “peace process”, the Palestinians have lost more, using the method:

take 10 and give back 1 if the Palestinians behave, then repeat!

Anyone can hopefully do that math to get the total sum!

This distinguished Pakistani friend of the Palestinian's name? Eqbal Ahmad – see http://www.bitsonline.net/eqbal/

Sometimes, it is indeed too late to learn. That time, mercifully, hasn't come yet – but is close at hand!

Subject: Your Interview “Government Insider: Bush Authorized 911 Attacks”

Friday, May 23, 2008.

Dear Mr. Alex Jones – Dissent-Chief Extraordinaire,

I do not know how to reach you directly, so I am writing this public letter in the hope that you will get to see it and will choose to respond.

I humbly wish to draw your kind attention to a comment that I posted on May 21st , 2008 at 5:50 pm, for the very un-forensic interview that you conducted with Stanley Hilton “Government Insider: Bush Authorized 911 Attacks”.

The most disturbing question about this interview is why should a famous gadfly like yourself, one who has become an immensely popular magnet for the most radical and overzealous of 'truth-seekers' among the dissent-space in the United States, deliberately try to push this concept of “Bush Authorized 911 Attacks” in this interview, and even attempt to give it extra credibility by prefacing the interview transcript with: “Keep in mind when reading this, that the man being interviewed is no two-bit internet conspiracy buff”, and yet, produce not a shard of the purported evidence? The credibility of this interview is rather straightforwardly analyzed in my comment posted on your website, and which is also reproduced below for your convenience. I hope that as the rising gadfly 'dissenting chief' of many a rebel and 'mal-content', that you will appreciate and welcome a tiny plebeian gnat on your own very prominent back!

I am entirely worried that just as the uber gadfly extraordinaire Noam Chomsky takes the opposite extreme position, of a “Bin Laden” and “Al-Qaeeda” dun-it without producing any evidence or rational analysis to support his conjectures that can withstand any forensic scrutiny, you seem to be taking the other extreme position, entirely following in his very large and distinguished footsteps. It almost appears as if, surely only inadvertently, a dialectics of infamy (also known as Ezra Pound's 'technique of infamy') is being re-constructed in the dissent-space to cater to the needs and proclivities of every breed of emergent flock and every possibility (see Responsibility of Intellectuals – Redux). Everything except that which might actually be true, provable, or useful in efficaciously preempting “imperial mobilization” which every American of conscience, as per all the public opinion polls over the past few years, opposes. And primarily opposes more today than yesterday, because the “economic self-denial (that is defense spending), and the human sacrifice (casualties even among professional soldiers) required in the effort are [finally becoming] uncongenial to democratic instincts.”

IMHO, only the timely institutional capitalization upon this emerging new domestic reality in America can lead to any efficacy of dissent! The window of opportunity is tiny and shrinking rapidly, bounded that it is in the initial stages of the game by the apathetic or scared and all too willing “United We Stand” public on one end, and the COG and Martial Law on the other before the “democratic instincts” very predictably begin to react towards the end-game. That public reaction too has been astutely modulated and controlled, and you know all this far better than this scribe.

And yet, all the distinguished gadflies of empire are busy with what? Cultivating more red herrings! How many have actually done any insightful analysis of what it takes to derail “imperial mobilization”? I have only mainly heard platitudes, moralizing, sky-is-falling, or rehash of the crimes of empire, with many just laughing their way to their banks in soaring book sales and speaking engagement fees! But what I don't hear is efficacious solution-spaces!

In this regard, I humbly draw your kind attention to this report by Project Humanbeingsfirst: How to derail 'imperial mobilization' and preempt the crossing of the Nuclear Rubicon.

And to this key passage therein:

If there is reason for the United States to nuclear decimate any country or any peoples in purported 'self-defense', the American peoples must demand a ratification of the decision to go to war through a public referendum – let its great “populist democracy” speak directly in the modernity of the 21st century before it is called upon to make its sacrifices, before it is called upon to pay its taxes to fund the war, and before it is called upon to acquire innocent blood on its hands!

You will surely agree in principle with the afore stated paragraph, that a mandatory public referendum before initiating any “'defensive' US military action” can not only immediately catalyze the much needed world Détente on the 'Grand Chessboard' by the ordinary American public themselves, but also preempt both another 911 upon America's shores, and the crossing of the nuclear Rubicon – because now, an almost insurmountable institutional road-block would have been enacted in the veritable path of “imperial mobilization” within the legal framework of governance, which in these times of 'once bitten twice shy', will surely vote a “NAY”!

This entirely eliminates the typical mobilizing impact harvested from a catalyzing “new Pearl Harbor” false flag operation, and hence the very usefulness of planning and executing a costly criminal operation that has little payback. Especially today with the American peoples already war averse! If this genuine democratic hook was today present in the system, perhaps the first 911 war on Afghanistan could not have been prevented due to its shock impact; perhaps the costly launching of war on Iraq may also not have been prevented as plebeian America was still going strong “United We Stand” through the projected “cake-walk”; but today, with this nation bleeding, gas prices over $4.00, and many perched at the edge of insolvency, it would entirely eliminate the raison d'être of another 911 that President Bush repeatedly warns the Americans about every chance he gets:

Good morning [America]. At this moment, somewhere in the world, terrorists are planning new attacks on our country. Their goal is to bring destruction to our shores that will make September the 11th pale by comparison.” (President of the United States, George W. Bush, Feb. 13, 2008)

And which, Donald Rumsfeld so sanguinely opines in a recently disclosed 2006 video-tape, he rather have to get the peoples to take the 'threats' to America seriously because they lack “the maturity to recognize the seriousness of the ‘threats’”. With the afore-stated plebeians' hook in place, his next statement wouldn't have the grotesque import that it now has, would it(?):

The correction for that, I suppose, is another attack.”

Direct referendum is a simple well known mechanism that can be far more potent and efficacious within the requisite timelines of urgency, than what all the Anti-War Movements, 911 Truth Movements, Impeachment Movements, Whistle-blower Movements, Book-Publishing Movements, Reformed Alcoholic Movements, Internet Rant Movements, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera, have been able to preempt since 911!

Indeed, IMHO, all that these various Movements have been able to orchestrate, is a glorious trail of inefficacy, red herrings, exercise on treadmills, armchair internet activism (substitute for the mainstream's 7 o'clock news), and the very enablement of “imperial mobilization” through their impotency – as even the President of the United States had noted on the eve of the invasion of Iraq, responding to the question “Given the size of the protests in England over the weekend, do you have any concerns that Tony Blair might pay a serious political price for supporting you on Iraq?”, he had said:

First of all, you know, size of protest, it's like deciding, well, I'm going to decide policy based upon a focus group.” (President George W. Bush, February 23, 2003)

Unless the handful of conscionable peoples who do rise-up to protest, and especially those who rise to prominent positions of leadership among them, also learn to forensically analyze their failure to be efficacious in their dissent instead of eagerly always grasping at every straw and red herring planted their way, they inevitably become part of sustaining the very same “imperial mobilization” they oppose! Dissent has thus, in effect, become an essential and very treacherous component of empire! It enables conscionable people to feel good on the treadmill, and accomplishes no useful interference with the imperial projects of empire.

This is precisely what Hectoring Hegemons of all shades and stripes count on, and the dissenting-chiefs of empire so excel in assisting them in: the ability to construct imperial faits accomplis while providing the conscionable plebeians with some astutely constructed 'blow out the steam safety-valves' through managed dissent! Even that 'safety-valve' won't be needed under Martial Law – and you must surely agree with that bit of palpable truism!

Therefore, I hope you can join me in advocating this efficacious measure wholeheartedly, if it makes sense to you for its immediate efficacy given the grotesque reality du jour. How to instrument its realization requires all of dissent-space coming together on this one singular focal point of action and not be wasting its precious time and resources chasing this and that cleverly cultivated red herring traps like the one you seem to be, surely only inadvertently, pushing in your interview of Stanley Hilton.

Please feel free to constructively critique anything I have written – I invite you to take it apart not with rants on a megaphone, but with convincing logic and rationalism with the touchstone of efficacy being the paramount yardstick of useful dissent! I don't have all the answers that still need to be uncovered to practically derail “imperial mobilization”, and am just as much concerned about the crossing of the nuclear Rubicon as the rest of conscionable thinking peoples on the planet who see its constructions in the making. That must surely remain the first priority of all peoples!

You do real good work (in most cases) and I humbly thank you for having the courage of your convictions and showing us ordinary folks the way. That said, the victims of “imperial mobilization” care little how hard the dissenters yelled in their megaphones in the streets of America! Please do keep that in mind!

Thank you.

Comments on “Government Insider: Bush Authorized 911 Attacks”:

Zahir Ebrahim/Project Humanbeingsfirst.org Says:

May 21st , 2008 at 5:50 pm

Hello –

After reading this bizarre article, I wrote the following note to Noam Chomsky - I wish to share an excerpt from it here because it hits at the heart of the matter: this disclosure is a bit too early in time! If these statements aren’t mere hyperbole but backed with evidence: “ … but in actually ordering it to happen. Bush personally ordered it to happen. We have some very incriminating documents as well as eye-witnesses, that Bush personally ordered this event to happen in order to gain …”, then this nice gentleman would be prematurely “sleeping with the fishes” by now (Heavens forbid – and may he live long and prosper).

While there [can be] no doubt to this overarching phrase from his statement: “And this was a direct, covert operation ordered”, at least by someone, to assert [that] there is evidence which points to the President of the United States, and then live to state it, is counter-intuitive – no different than the Government’s version that a caveman Yoda master from the Hindu Kush using mind-melding Yoga to overcome all of America’s air-defences and simultaneously “control-demolition” the towers in a “shock and awe” of his own upon the most armed to the teeth superpower national security state in the history of civilizations and conveniently [also] leave his calling card behind so that the angry-elephant will know exactly where to bomb him, is counter-intuitive.

So either there is no [accessible] evidence [which is why 'state-secrets privilege' and high-speed shredders exist in the first place], or these are mere allegations and conjectures, hearsay, hyperbolics, etc., and only in these two cases, can this person live to tell this tale.

The s/n ratio seems very weak in this interview on account of rationality of analysis. If there was any real evidence as he states, this guy would have naturally pulled an “Ellsberg”, i.e., gone the “Pentagon Papers” route – not merely talk about it [publicly]!

This Government, as with the Third Reich before it, is very ‘legality’ conscious – and if an incriminating document as suggested here can [accessibly] exist which can indict its leader: [then it is logical to presume that] if they can do a 911 like grotesque [false flag] operation and kill 3000 of their own citizens, they surely wouldn’t mind killing one more [and would do it before the 'rat' even ventured to squeal]! QED!

I wrote [the following] note to Noam Chomsky because he vehemently argues for the Government’s version [of 911] primarily because he thinks it’s too big of a lie otherwise; not because he thinks the Government is a saint (obviously). It would be interesting to see what he has to say to this supposed “insider’s revelation” which runs counter to his [publicly] stated position. I’ll ask him to post his response here (if he makes any).



Thank you.

———- Letter to Noam Chomsky ———-

Date: Wed, 21 May 2008 13:58:28 -0800

Subject: Interesting article in Pakistani paper for your comments!

Dear Prof. Chomsky

Please check out this article which appeared in a Pakistani newspaper. …

http://www.daily.pk/.../george-w-bush-authorized-911-attacks-says-government-insider.html

I am a bit surprised by this disclosure – not by what the neocons were doing at Univ. of Chicago for I have actually read some of these thesis believe it or not. One of them is very interesting, “Coup d'etat” – you may have read it already. I bought it and read it on the plane last year! I am quite well read in Straussian craft and its history by now, and also have studied Brzezinski et. al quite a bit. So none of this information is new to me. Rather I know it to be correct by first-hand study of their state-craft doctrines. However what is a bit surprising is the disclosure that I am seeking your opinion on – for it has come too soon.

I was thinking that it will be at least 50 years – and in the meantime, we will all be looking either for a “Bin Laden's” hand (that's you – which conveniently echoes the Pentagon's and White House's story-line), or another covert-hand aka “Hari-Seldon's Second Foundationers” within the existing system of governance and/or perched upon its edge with deep tentacles into both the Pentagon's DIA and NORAD which means at least a minimal civil-military collusion space, and deep pockets (and that's me – which mistrusts and distrusts any Governments' version of anything, preferring instead to rely on Ellsberg's experience of the Pentagon [Papers] era that “Governments lie”, the size of the lie is immaterial; and your own prior teachings of “outlaw” and “rogue” states).

Regards,

Zahir

Response to 'Expulsion of Jews from Muslim Countries in the 60 years of Nakba'

May 20th, 2008 at 1:23

The comment [to the article written by a Palestinian Mazin Qumsiyeh – “Palestinian Options as the Nakba turns 60”], perhaps by a genuinely anguished Jewish person from Helsinki Finland:

... not ONLY the expelsion of Jews from various Moslim countries in the last 60 years that Israel has been an independent state, ... The Jews are no settlers of colonialism ... it is now a time of a media war to spit on the Jews and curse the Jewish Scriptures. ... ”

is perhaps best addressed by another Jewish person from that very region who can bring perspective to bear on the grave matter:

The Jews of Iraq by Naeim Giladi” [http://tinyurl.com/29mecn]

which begins with the following preface by AMEU:

begin quote

The Link interviewed Naeim Giladi, a Jew from Iraq, for three hours on March 16, 1998, two days prior to his 69th birthday. For nearly two other delightful hours, we were treated to a multi-course Arabic meal prepared by his wife Rachael, who is also Iraqi. “It’s our Arab culture,” he said proudly.

In our previous Link, Israeli historian Ilan Pappe looked at the hundreds of thousands of indigenous Palestinians whose lives were uprooted to make room for foreigners who would come to populate confiscated land. Most were Ashkenazi Jews from Eastern Europe. But over half a million other Jews came from Islamic lands. Zionist propagandists claim that Israel “rescued” these Jews from their anti-Jewish, Muslim neighbors. One of those “rescued” Jews-Naeim Giladi-knows otherwise.

In his book, Ben Gurion’s Scandals: How the Haganah & the Mossad Eliminated Jews, Giladi discusses the crimes committed by Zionists in their frenzy to import raw Jewish labor. Newly-vacated farmlands had to be plowed to provide food for the immigrants and the military ranks had to be filled with conscripts to defend the stolen lands. Mr. Giladi couldn’t get his book published in Israel, and even in the U.S. he discovered he could do so only if he used his own money.

The Giladis, now U.S. citizens, live in New York City. By choice, they no longer hold Israeli citizenship. “I am Iraqi,” he told us, “born in Iraq, my culture still Iraqi Arabic, my religion Jewish, my citizenship American.”

End quote

Please read the interview in its details which entirely addresses every single point raised by the commenter from Finland, and do followup on the cited book [Ben Gurion’s Scandals].

One’s mileage of course will vary depending on the degree of indoctrination and mis-information that one has been deliberately fed as part of the Zionist thought control of the world-wide Jewry to garner their support for Der-Judenstadt in the midst of latter day Palestine [See “Celebrating Israel's 60th Birthday in the 60th year of the Nakba”].

As Noam Chomsky says, it takes a sentence to construct a lie, and considerably more space (and time and energy) to refute it – thus wasting enormous amounts of conscionable peoples resources which could be spent doing something more productive – and that is the Zionist game-plan to further the process of conquest of Eretz Yisrael. To keep cultivating an infinite supply of red herrings in order to systematically seed newer faits accomplis which are subsequently impossible to reverse due to the new reality on the ground that gets constructed. In another hundred years, or perhaps even fifty, there will be no need for these red herrings and lies. The facts of how the land of Canaan was settled by the Zionist Jews will be openly proclaimed by all and sundry, as is done for the settling of another new world on another continent at the expense of 10 million of its natives. Who does not know that story today?

To really rationally understand this emotional subject matter, rather than either becoming an inadvertent part of a spin-machine, or purposely spewing deception, please see “The endless trail of red herrings”. Searching for that string on the web will locate it, but one can find it on another Jewish person’s website as well: http://www.ilanpappe.org/news.html.

And there is certainly no doubt that indigenous Jews belong as much in Israel-Palestine, and in the Middle East, as all its other indigenous peoples. No one, especially no alien, has the right to dispossess another native – unless the time-honored hands of the victors’ system of Justice have to prevail as in the case of rectifying even any ordinary crime of robbers taking over another’s home in armed invasion robbery, let alone when a supreme monumental crime against humanity is continually being committed over the past 100 years! As per Nuremberg laws, much of the Israeli Zionist leadership, past and present, both within Israel and those supportive of Israel from outside its borders, would hang multiple times! But of course, those laws have only been used to settle scores by the victors for the defeated peoples crimes! Just that fact unto itself may become a precedent setter for the future – a condition that ought to worry the entire world-wide far-sighted conscionable Jewry.



Thank you.

Letter to Palestine Think Tank on 'Palestinian options as the Nakba turns 60'

May 19th, 2008 at 5:41

Thank you for the Palestinian perspective. Many insightful observations [by Mazin Qumsiyeh].

I am not sure how to put this [response] very elegantly, so I hope I can be forgiven for putting it rather straightforwardly. The following is a wonderful recipe if I was the Hectoring Hegemon and my pending meal was sold these philosophies:

begin quote

For now, the choice that remains relevant is the one posed by Martin Luther King, Jr.:

Cowardice asks the question - is it safe? Expediency asks the question - is it politic? Vanity asks the question - is it popular? But conscience asks the question - is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular; but one must take it because it is right.”

And choosing to do what is right must also adhere to that universal wisdom: “Grant me the courage to change the things I can, the serenity to accept those I can’t, and the WISDOM TO KNOW the difference.”

end quote

I hope one can see why! This does however require more than a few seconds of reflection. In fact, it perhaps requires very carefully studying how the Zionists acquired Palestine as if one is doing a Ph.D. (in a hard discipline), in order to appreciate its import.

The best way for the Palestinian people to analyze their predicament, IMHO, is to study Theodore Herzl, and the systems of power and its many manifestations that were set up by the Zionists in the early twentieth century to realize his plan. Can one observe any of the wonderful prose that is quoted above, in any of the Zionist writings, or in any of the processes that were set up which eventually led to the Balfour Declaration? Did the Jewish scholars, Rabbis, think-tankers and financiers advise their flock to pray to their G-d to “Grant me the courage to change the things I can, the serenity to accept those I can’t, and the WISDOM TO KNOW the difference”? The only prayers they offered were in deception to sell the otherwise impossible task of relocating them to Zion! The only appeal to G-d (i.e., any sort of spirituality, the “right” thing to do stuff, etc.) was to actually achieve the impossible!

And the Zionists did indeed accomplish the impossible!!!!

If one were playing with wooden chess pieces on the ‘Grand Chessboard’ instead of in real human flesh and souls, one would have applauded them on their gamesmanship!

As strategists, tacticians, institution and organization builders, and of course, also mantra spinners, they have been peerless masterminds. One would be foolish to not learn from the masters themselves!

If a Palestinian can get out of his or her skin for a moment, is able detach oneself from the insufferable pain of one’s shattered tabula rasa, and move on to the far distance of the planet Mars to rationally analyze the devilishly sophisticated processes that went into the construction of Israel, one might be able to do a bit more efficacious thinking, and leading.

If one can intellectually recast the problem, of the Palestinians commencing the planning to reacquire their lost Palestine in 2008, after losing it for only 60 years, to be the equivalent of the Zionists planning to acquire Palestine in 1898, after having lost it for 3000 years, what does one get? One can immediately observe that the Zionists started off on an almost intractable problem and overcame it all. Not only that, they were so sure that they will acquire their dream that Herzl had even boasted at the very inception of their plan to seed confidence in the plan: “In Basle I founded the Jewish state . . . Maybe in five years, certainly in fifty, everyone will realize it.” [quote wording corrected]. Circumstances of course, also helped. But in the writings and methods of the Palestinians’ arch nemeses, and in their modus operandi in the 50 years that preceded the onset of the Nakba, possibly lie the efficacious seeds of orchestrating the desired Palestinian solution-space. All Palestinians already know [what] their solution-space is in 2008, just as all the Zionist also already knew what their solution-space was in 1898.

It is how to get there that requires a careful study of power and its incantations. None of which include the lame recipe quoted above. To catch a mere glimpse of the sophisticated intellectual capital that went into the construction of Israel – just look at this statement of David Ben Gurion“What is inconceivable in normal times is possible in revolutionary times”!

When the Palestinians can come up with such intellectual capital – that is the day when their fortunes will perhaps begin to change!



Thank you.

Letter to Editor, Tehran Times
California, United States. Monday June 09, 2008. 4:37 PM

Your report of June 10, 2008, noted the following statement from Iran's top leadership:

' “Surely the United States' dreams about Iraq will not come true,” Ayatollah Khamenei stated in a meeting with visiting Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki. '

Certainly Iran and Iraq are both besieged by tremendous difficulties and hardships, with a possible nuclear holocaust of Iran lurking in the shadows of contrived pretexts. The minimum that both the Iranian and Iraqi leadership can demonstrate in their public pronouncements is that they understand the grotesque behind the scenes reality. The above statement betrays such a lack of perception. What does the respected Ayatollah mean that “Surely the United States' dreams about Iraq will not come true,”? They have already come true! The raping of Mesopotamia, destroying the DNA of its ancient peoples, and bombing all of Iraq back to pre-historic times from whence it cannot even reclaim clean non-Uranium laden drinking water, is the meaning of “Mission Accomplished”! In order to understand what lies behind the visible puppet-shows, one has to trace the un-subtle strings back to the un-hidden puppet-masters and to their blatant tortuous ideologies of conquests of constructing “Revolutionary Times” which will lead to a) half the destruction of humanity as we know it, and b) a new world order of a single world government located in Zionistan with the rest of the world subservient to it. Perhaps the respected Ayatollah understands this all too well. And perhaps he does not. In the latter event, as noted in this previous letter to editor which was not published by Tehran Times (http://humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2008/05/letter-tehrantimes-cia-terror-network.html), he and the rest of Iranian leadership do a great disservice to the people of Iran who are today poised at the brink of nuclear annihilation. The least these leaders can do is to comprehend, and publicly betray their apprehension, of the grave dangers Iran faces today that can create a far worse fate for its ancient and proud peoples than the one that has been so devilishly constructed for the Iraqis! Please also see Project Humanbeingsfirst's report “Heads-up warning to the American Peoples – Nuclear attack on Iran appears imminent!” http://humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2008/03/warningamerica-nuking-iran-imminent.html.

Letter to Editor, Tehran Times
California, United States. Sunday May 18, 2008.

In reference to your story today “Iran busts CIA terror network” and the identification of the terrorists who executed the April 12, 2008 horrific bombing in Shiraz, the attention of your readers is drawn to the following letter from Project Humanbeingsfirst.org sent to the Associated Press for their deliberate obfuscating reporting of it – Letter to Editor: Iran, the Associated Press, and Covert-War of 'Imperial Mobilization' (URL: http://tinyurl.com/3pvotg).

This letter was obviously not printed by AP. Perhaps Tehran Times can print it in its entirety.

Your readers attention is also drawn to the following letter to the Iranian peoples and their leadership – Letter to Editor Press TV with a message to the Iranian Peoples (URL: http://tinyurl.com/6yp3mf), where it is noted:

The multi-faceted “full spectrum” covert warfare for the destabilization of Iran is surely known to the 'wretched of the earth' in Iran who continue to bear the brunt of it. ... If the Iranian leadership can publicly rise to the political challenges by at least openly acknowledging that they face a real threat of modern Iran being nuclear-wiped off the face of the earth back to the Stone Age, and that they also intimately understand the real diabolical premeditated motivations driving that very real threat, then they might at least begin to come up with some real self-defense that would have any deterrence teeth to it. ... There can be nothing of higher imperative for the nation of Iran and its peoples, than to astutely safeguard from becoming an Iraq – an equally ancient civilization that now lies in premeditated and diabolically orchestrated ruin.

Press TV did not publish this letter, perhaps due to the blunt un-sugared warnings contained therein:

It appears that it is the Iranian political leadership who, while asserting “Politicians do not deal with imaginary things”, are consistently “hallucinating” in their own imaginary conception of the reality du jour. While this may perhaps be calculated bravado, or some bizarre political ploy to deliberately appear moronic on the world stage, on the face of it, it betrays an asinine comprehension of the “real intention” of the Goliath of the world and the diabolical forces that are driving its “imperial mobilization”.

Iranian peoples and their leadership have to face up to the grotesque reality that is staring them in the face – it ain't pleasant. The latest press release by Project Humanbeingsfirst straightforwardly explains that grotesque reality and how to preempt it: Press Release The Only Solution to Avoid Total War May 15, 2008 (URL http://tinyurl.com/55h5v9), noting:

That deterrent solution-space, according to Project Humanbeingsfirst, is only in the forming of NATO-like Full Spectrum Alliances with an effective “Dr. Strangelove” type Samson Option that is publicly targeted at Israel and Western Europe as a declared self-defense nuclear doctrine, to construct the only viable and effective Deterrence: MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction)!

Perhaps Tehran Times can pick up the slack by publishing these letters and the press release.

Project Humanbeingsfirst humbly extends its deepest condolences – for what it's worth – to the families and loved ones of all the victims of “imperial mobilization”, everywhere!

Caveat Emptor

Please be advised that Project HumanbeingsfirstTM fully cooperates with all law enforcement and other governmental agencies worldwide in rooting out Terrorism in all its nuanced shades and stripes in order to end its Neanderthal reign of terror upon all who are human beings first. Project Humanbeingsfirst does not distinguish between terrorists clad in turbans and those wearing suits, nor between the predatory rampages of the pirates vs. the emperors, albeit each is apportioned the measure of crime and guilt commensurate to their respective station of power and impact on their victims. Law enforcement personnel worldwide, but especially in the United States and the West, are encouraged to participate with Project Humanbeingsfirst. It is essential for all nations' state security apparatus to learn how to forensically identify the monumental supreme terrorists hiding in plain sight among us under legal cover, the real merchants of death, while they dutifully chase down the easy to spot handful of often deliberately manufactured pirates at sea.
