When a gang of criminals uses innocent people as human shields, they’re cynically taking advantage of the fundamental sense of decency found in almost every human heart—that is, every human heart except those of the despicable cowards who adopt this practice. A sense of compassion toward the victims of the criminals makes it more difficult for honorable people to take the necessary actions to stop or correct the evils perpetrated by the criminals.
The American Action Report has learned that a Middle Eastern terrorist group routinely uses Jews as human shields in carrying out their criminal enterprises. No, they’re not al Qaeda; they’re much better funded and far better organized than al Qaeda. They’re not even jihadists; there’s nothing holy about their struggle. The terrorist group in question is the Israeli government.
Prior to the fall of the Soviet Union in the early 1990’s, Israel—meaning both the Israelis and their government—needed the Palestinians for low-wage labor. Possibly for this reason, Shimon Perez, the only Israeli prime minister to have suffered from the Holocaust rather than benefited from it, took sincere steps to advance the Middle East peace process. (He would not have become prime minister except that no political party was able to form a majority. As a compromise, three parties took two-year turns at holding that position.)
After the Soviet Union fell and Israel received a flood of immigrants with tenuous claims to being Jewish, the Palestinians became expendable. Israel had a new source of low-wage labor. To use a familiar phrase, the Palestinians were seen as “useless eaters.”
Maybe you’ve heard of the guns-and-caviar index. Some economist found that, for 17 years in a row, there was an inverse relationship between the worldwide sales of fighter jets (guns) and corporate executive jets (caviar.) As long as the guns-and-caviar index was valid, a rising tide lifted all (or most) boats.
When nations (Israel was one of the first) shifted over to the disaster capitalist model (in which disasters of all kinds become profitable), however, we saw a different dynamic. Under the disaster capitalist model, the sales of fighter jets and corporate executive jets rise or fall together. Not only that, but profits are concentrated into the hands of the disaster capitalists, while lower living standards are the lot of everyone else.
I stress this point because it shows a divide between the “haves” favored by the Israeli government on one hand, and the Jewish majority on the other. Many Jews and Jewish groups have protested Israel’s often illegal policies, but their voices are largely ignored by the controlled media. When non-Jews criticize Israel’s behavior, they’re accused of anti-Semitism. In this manner, the relatively few criminals at the top of the Israeli government are using Jews as human shields to further their criminal enterprises.
Israel’s spy group Mossad created the Palestinian group Hamas to undermine Yassir Arafat’s support from Palestinians. (Click here.) Once Israel created Hamas, they secretly supported them and built them up while further undermining Arafat. (Click here.)
Israel’s apartheid policy against the Palestinians differs from South Africa’s former policy in one major respect. South Africans build barriers to keep workers from escaping to better lives. Israel’s wall was built to keep Palestinians from getting to their farms or other places of work, and receiving necessities of life.
On June 8, 2010, the United Nations Security Council declared that Israel’s ethnic cleansing of Gaza was illegal. (Click here for official United Nations statement.)
It’s not the purpose of this article to go into Israel’s ethnic cleansing of Gaza, but it is necessary to demonstrate that the government of Israel is committing criminal acts, mainly against innocent people; and using charges of anti-Semitism (using Jews as human shields) as a cloak for their criminal aggression.
One can’t honestly say that all Palestinians are terrorists, although paid Internet trolls are filling the chat rooms and meet-up groups with the accusation that all Palestinians are supporters of terrorism if not terrorists themselves. (Click here.) Remember, as well, that Israeli tax dollars were used to create Hamas and build Palestinian support for Hamas.
Here’s the sticking point: Whenever someone criticizes the criminality of Israeli leaders, paid Internet trolls and well-funded Israeli lobby groups accuse that person of being anti-Semitic—that is, anti-Jewish. Is this reasonable, or are terrorists—the Israeli government leaders—using Jews as human shields for their criminality?
Can we reasonably assume that everyone in Israel supports every action of the Israeli government? Of course not. Can we reasonably assume that every Jew in the world supports every action of the Israeli government? Of course not.
Many well-meaning Christians automatically support the Israeli government because of the Lord’s biblical promises to the descendants of Abraham and Isaac. They should read the whole Bible instead of limiting themselves to a few comforting verses.
The Old Testament mentions every person who served as king of Israel and Judah. It says of most of them, “And he did what was evil in the sight of the Lord.” Major portions and even entire books of the Old Testament, such as Jeremiah and Hosea condemn the evils of Israelite kings and citizens. Were the writers of the Old Testament anti-Semitic? Of course not.
In the first part of this series, I described how Israel uses Internet trolls to influence public opinion. In this part of the series, I described how Israel hypocritically uses accusations of anti-Semitism as a shield for criminal aggression in stark violation of Jewish law. In the third and final part of this series, I'll give proof of Israeli Mossad agents impersonating Arabs, committing terrorist acts, and blaming those terrorist acts on Israel's enemies.
Here’s a final thought. In ancient times, Rabbi Hillel said that the commandments, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength; and love your neighbor as yourself,” were the very essence of Jewish thought, and “All else is commentary.” (Click here for Jewish commentary on Hillel quote.)
If those two commandments are the essence of Jewish thought, just how “Jewish” are Israel’s leaders?
