RRD: First a note to any anti-semitic trolls out there who are reading this : I am not Alan Dershowitz nor am I like the well intentioned (but naive ) souls who have argued with this creature Barr. I don’t debate with scum. I won’t respond to those who spit on me & curse me by asking them “Why do you say these hateful things” . I am not “polite” & I am certainly not naive enough to give you “the benefit of the doubt”. You are scum: I know it,& you know it in your pus -filled little souls & I will not waste one minute of my life “arguing” with you. If you comment your comment will never show up. If you Tweet me your Tweet will be ignored & you will be blocked. Threats will be reported to the police. Now to the article. Roseanne: It’s ‘bullsh*t’ that Gilad Atzmon is a Holocaust denier; Atzmon lashes out at ‘Zio-trolls’ | Twitchy http://twitchy.com/2013/05/09/roseanne-its-bullsht-that-gilad-atzmon-is-a-holocaust-denier-atzmon-lashes-out-at-zio-trolls/ Barr herself has previously warned us of something called “Jewish Mind Control” Vile: Roseanne Barr warns against the horrors of ‘Jewish mind control’ | Twitchy http://twitchy.com/2012/08/23/vile-roseanne-barr-warns-against-the-horrors-of-jewish-mind-control/ Barr need not worry, after all one cannot control that which does not exist . I have written about this putrid scum Atzmon before(fn1) . Gilad Atzmon is a rabidly anti-semitic cretin whose vile “The Wandering Who” was applauded by his fellow travelers in Jew Hatred Richard Falk & John Mearsheimer (fn2) . So repellent are Atzmon’s ravings that many anti-zionists have denounced him(fn3) This has not stopped the anti-semites at the BBC from welcoming him on to one of their anti-semitic shows.(fn4) ( You may note that I am using the word “anti-semite” frequently,lest these anti-semites be able to say that they have intimidated me from calling them out as the scum that they are). Barr is not intelligent enough to create this pose of feigned innocence & feigned outrage which ANTI-SEMITES (such as the anti-semites Falk,Gilad,Mearsheimer & Barr) have adopted as their latest tactic,she is merely emulating her more cunning associates. As for the poor martyred Atzmon here is a sampling of his bile: Gilad Atzmon: “It is not fair for the sea to have Jews thrown in to it” – YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?client=mv-google&hl=en≷=US&v=0RS1MaQ1d_Q&nomobile=1 The protocols of Gilad Atzmon – Israel Culture, Ynetnews http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4147243,00.html ……… ”
This process institutionalizes the Jewish suffering and doesn’t impress me. I heard about Holocaust deniers who were forced to sit in jail just because they wouldn’t fall for the Holocaust narrative as described by the Zionists. Holocaust denial laws are the worst – they prevent Jews from understanding their own history. “Take the death marches issue, for example. It’s clear to everyone that at the beginning of the war the Nazis wanted to clear the Reich of Jews. If that’s the case, why did the lead the Jews at the end of the war into the Reich in what people refer to as ‘the death marches’? If the Nazis wanted. to destroy the Jews, the last thing they should have done was lead them to Germany.” “Jews were no longer a labor force. They were too weak and therefore died in the marches. Jews say the Nazis wanted to conceal evidence, but that’s an idiotic response because the Nazis left Jews behind in the camps.” “According to one interesting answer, the Jews preferred to stay with the Germans than fall into the hands of the Russians. There was a typhus outbreak and the assumption was that if the Jews were taken to Germany, the Americans and Britons could deal with the disease. “So the death marches were actually humane. This is a very consistent ruling.”……….. …………..”Both Nazi Germany and Israel are driven by ethnocentrism. They are both racist countries with a tendency to expand. Israel and the Nazi movement are similar in many categories. But since Israel is a democratic country, each of its citizens is responsible for its crimes, while in Nazi Germany only the Führer and his party members were responsible for the war crimes. “Moreover, the Zionist movement was born before the Nazi movement. The Nazis disappeared, but the Zionists remain – and today they are even stronger than America.

Israeli press reported this evening that French gunman Mohamed Merah had been on a trip to Israel in the past. According to the report, Merah’s passport had Israeli stamps in it. The purpose of his visit is unknown. Israeli analysts suspect he was either trying to visit the Palestinian territories or preparing for a terror attack. However, I won’t rule out the possibility that Merah was actually trained by Israeli forces. Marah may have conducted a false flag operation. By way of deception is, after all, the Mossad’s motto.

Here is a recent article from 972 Magazine referring to Atzmon’s book ‘The Wandering Jew’: “Atzmon is a Holocaust denier; he has previously asked “if the Nazis ran a death factory in Auschwitz-Birkenau, why would the Jewish prisoners join them at the end of the war?” In this book […..] Atzmon writes on page 179 “we, for instance, can envisage a horrific situation in which an Israeli so-called ‘pre- emptive’ nuclear attack on Iran that escalates into a disastrous nuclear war, in which tens of millions of people perish. I guess that amongst the survivors of such a nightmare scenario, some may be bold enough to argue that ‘Hitler might have been right after all.’ On page 27 he argues “Throughout the centuries, some Jewish bankers have gathered the reputation of backers and financers of wars and even one communist revolution.
”………… RRD: Note that Dershowitz links to the sources of some of the quotes at anti-semitic blogs. I will not drive traffic to the blog of this creature Atzmon or to others of his ilk so I will not link to them myself. The numbers in parentheses are the page numbers from the book “The Wandering Who. Why are John Mearsheimer and Richard Falk Endorsing a Blatantly Anti-Semitic Book? by Alan Dershowitz | November 4, 2011 http://www.newrepublic.com/node/97030/print ……”
Lest there be any doubt about Atzmon’s anti-Semitic credentials, listen to his self -description in the book itself. He boasts about “drawing many of my insights from a man who … was an anti-Semite as well as a radical misogynist” and a hater of “almost everything that fails to be Aryan masculinity” (89 -90). He declares himself a “proud, self -hating Jew” (54), writes with “contempt” of “the Jew in me” (94), and describes himself as “a strong opponent of … Jewish-ness” (186). “……….. ·….“[W]e must begin to take the accusation that the Jewish people are trying to control the world very seriously.”….. From On Anti-Semitism http://web.archive.org/web/20040114024643/http:/www.gilad.co.uk/Anti%20Semi.html ….“American Jewry makes any debate on whether the ‘Protocols of the elder of Zion’ [sic] are an authentic document or rather a forgery irrelevant. American Jews do try to control the world, by proxy.”… Atzmon in The Wandering Who ?: …..”He calls the recent credit crunch “the Zio-punch” (22) and says it was not “a Jewish conspiracy” because “it was all in the open” (30).”…. ….”Paul Wolfowitz, Rahm Emmanuel, and other members of “the Jewish elite” remain abroad instead of moving to “Zion” because they “have proved far more effective for the Zionist cause by staying where they are” (19).”…. …..”The American media “failed to warn the American people of the enemy within” because of money (27).”…. ….“With Fagin and Shylock in mind Israeli barbarism and organ trafficking seem to be just other events in an endless hellish continuum.”…. …..“The Homo Zionicus quickly became a mass murderer, detached from any recognised form of ethical thinking and engaged in a colossal crime against humanity.”….. …..“[T]o be a Jew is a deep commitment that goes far beyond any legal or moral order” (20) and this commitment “pulls more and more Jews into an obscure, dangerous and unethical fellowship” (21).”….. ….”If Iran and Israel fight a nuclear war that kills tens of millions of people, “some may be bold enough to argue that ‘Hitler might have been right after all’” (179).”…. ·….“It took me years to accept that the Holocaust narrative, in its current form, doesn’t make any historical sense. … If, for instance, the Nazis wanted the Jews out of their Reich (Judenrein—free of Jews), or even dead, as the Zionist narrative insists, how come they marched hundreds of thousands of them back into the Reich at the end of the war?”… ….“[E]ven if we accept the Holocaust as the new Anglo -American liberal-democratic religion, we must allow people to be atheists.”… ….” Children should be allowed to question, as he did, “how the teacher could know that these accusations of Jews making Matza out of young Goyim’s blood were indeed empty or groundless” (185).”…. …. “The Holocaust religion is probably as old as the Jews themselves” (153).”….. ….”The history of Jewish persecution is a myth, and if there was any persecution the Jews brought it on themselves (175, 182).”…. ….. “[I]n order to promote Zionist interests, Israel must generate significant anti-Jewish sentiment. Cruelty against Palestinian civilians is a favourite Israeli means of achieving this aim.”…. From On Anti-Semitism http://web.archive.org/web/20040114024643/http:/www.gilad.co.uk/Anti%20Semi.html ….. “Jews may have managed to drop their God, but they have maintained goy -hating and racist ideologies at the heart of their newly emerging secular political identity. This explains why some Talmudic goy -hating elements have been transformed within the Zionist discourse into genocidal practices.”…. The Wandering Who ?: ….”The “Judaic God” described in Deuteronomy 6:10 -12 “is an evil deity, who leads his people to plunder, robbery and theft” (120). Atzmon explains that “Israel and Zionism … have instituted the plunder promised by the Hebrew God in the Judaic holy scriptures” (121).”… ….” The moral of the Book of Esther is that Jews “had better infiltrate the corridors of power” if they wish to survive (158).”…. …. “Many of us including me tend to equate Israel to Nazi Germany . Rather often I myself join others and argue that Israelis are the Nazis of our time. I want to take this opportunity to amend my statement. Israelis are not the Nazis of our time and the Nazis were not the Israelis of their time. Israel, is in fact far worse than Nazi Germany and the above equation is simply meaningless and misleading.”…. …..”He claims that “robbery and hatred is imbued in Jewish modern political ideology on both the left and the right” (123). And like other anti-Semites, Atzmon is obsessed in the book with Jewish names. It was Jews, such as Wolfowitz and Libby, who pushed the United States into war against Iraq in the “interests” of “their beloved Jewish state” (26). “How is it that America failed to restrain its Wolfowitzes ?” Atzmon asks (27). Likewise, according to Atzmon’s book, it was “Jewish bankers,” financiers, economists, writers, and politicians such as Greenspan, Levy, Aaronovitch, Saban, Friedman, Schiff, and Rothschild who have caused the economic and political problems of the world, ranging from the Bolshevik revolution to the wars of the 20th century to the current economic troubles (27,194). And like other classic anti-Semites, Atzmon doesn’t simply fault the individual Jews he names; he concocts a worldwide Jewish conspiracy motivated by a “ruthless Zio-driven” (27) “Jewish ideology” (69) that finds its source in “the lethal spirit” (122) of the Hebrew Bible. “…………. …” Leiter [RRD: An Atzmon apologist who defends Atzmon from those critics who have read the book despite his having not read the book himself] should read the book, especially pages 175 -176, before leaping to Atzmon’s defense. There Atzmon reflects “that 65 years after the liberation of Auschwitz, we must be entitled to start asking questions. We should ask for historical evidence and arguments rather than follow a religious narrative that is sustained by political pressure and laws.
”… RRD: John Mearsheimer co-author of “The Israel Lobby” — has praised Atzmon for being a “Universalist” & for being a foe of racism & for being a friend of hunanity. (fn5). In a sane society Atzmon would be regarded as a crank. Since our world is insane he will probably be awarded the Noble Peace Prize. Footnotes: fn1.

Israel Matzav: ‘Peace partners’ protest in New York City http://israelmatzav.blogspot.com/2013/05/peace-partners-protest-in-new-york-city.html?m=1
Obama urges Israel to submit to UN while UNHRC Special Rapporteur Falk compares Hamas to French resistance
US Urges Israel to Partake in UN Human Rights Review – Israel National News http://www.israelnationalnews.com/wap/Item.aspx?type=0&item=164553
“We have encouraged the Israelis to come to the council and to tell their story and to present their own narrative of their own human rights situation,” said Ambassador Eileen Chamberlain Donahoe, the U.S. representative to the United Nations’ Human RightsCouncil in Geneva, AFP reported. Israel cut all ties with the biased 47-member state council last March after it announced that it would probe how Israeli communities beyond the green line may be infringing on the rights of the Arab population. “The United States is absolutely, fully behind the,Universal Periodic Review and we do not want to see the mechanism in any way harmed,” Donahoe said, responding to questions at a conference at the Geneva Centre for Security Policy. She said the council and its president, Remigiusz Henczel of Poland, had been working tirelessly to determine if the review should go ahead even if Israel doesn’t participate, as well as what kind of sanctions might be appropriate. “Our very strong hope is that the outcome protects the two overriding values of universality … and the cooperative, collaborative nature of the process,” Donahoe said, according to AFP.”…. …”We see (this) as a structural bias against Israel,” Donahoe said, However, “UPR is different… (It) is a tool that treats all countries equally and is universally applicable,” she said, maintaining that it would be in Israel’s interest to take part in the review. ”…..
So Obama ”the greatest friend Israel has ever had” is urging Israel to submit to a ”review” of its Human Rights record by the rabidly anti-Israel UN Human Rights Commission. (fn1) This comes at a time when Richard Falk –that commission’s Special Rapporteur to the Palestinians– has once again equated Israel to Nazi Germany & added that Hamas is the equivalent of the French Resistance. (fn2) Previously Falk promoted a virulently anti-semitic book ”The Wandering Who?” by Gilad Atzmon(fn3),posted a Anti-semitic cartoon,(see the attached photos & fn4) ,& called for a new investigation into 9/11. (fn5) Falk himself will not conduct the review,but it is grimly ironic that his latest outlandish statement comes at the same time that Israel’s ”friend” Obama is pressuring the country to submit to this farce of a review.

How Obama is,& isn’t different from previous Democrats. Hercule Poirot once remarked that the difference between murder and attempted murder is not moral,it is that the attempted murderer is incompetent,whereas the murderer was successful. In this analogy Bill Clinton would be the attempted murderer and Obama would be the murderer. Some time ago I had a argument with someone who was urging us to vote for Romney. He was arguomg that,essentially,Obama would destroy the United States. (fn1) I responded to this by noting that Republicans had been proclaiming that “this time it’s different” at least since Bill Clinton vs Bush. They made the same argument against Clinton and against Kerry that they have made against Obama. I also noted that I knew some friends who had spelled Clinton with a K as “Klinton” to indicate that he was a Communist back during his reign. To this he replied that I was ”committing a horrendous injustice” against Bill Clinton, since Clinton “backed down” and “listened”. To this, I in turn responded :”No I really do not think that I have committed a ‘horrendous injustice” against Bill Clinton by saying that he is morally no different from Obama,Clinton proposed Hillarycare,and he wanted to install backdoors into our computers and into our phones via the Clipper chip. Cowardice is not a virtue,the fact that Clinton was not as driven,and as ruthless, and as competent as Obama made him less dangerous than Obama,but there was no moral distinction between the two”. And it was that very last sentence that gave me pause,not because I was in doubt as to whether there was a moral distinction between the two,but because I had inadvertently named the main,real,distinction between Obama and Clinton,and between Obama and Kerry and between Obama and Dukakis,hell for that matter between Obama and Mcgovern. Why do we call the Health Care bill Obamacare,instead of calling it Mcgoverncare,or Dukakiscare,or Clintoncare,or Kerrycare? “Why that’s obvious,Obama passed it” Exactly,for decades Democrats have lusted after a bill that would destroy private insurance and who passed it? Why did Obama not back down? For that matter,why did Obama get elected? Yes Bush and Mccain contributed to his victory,but Obama not only won, he won by large margins,at least part of this was due to the ruthlessness of David Axelrod (who should not be underestimated in 2012,see David Mendell’s: Obama from Promise to Power), but part of the reason was simply due to the fact that Obama is a charismatic demagogue. (Charismatic to me? No. To his followers,yes,even now when many have become disillusioned,one need only show up at a moderately liberal campus to see that some people, particularly women, still swoon over the man) And once Obama was elected,he was evidently prepared to sacrifice the House to ram through Obamacare,(hell if the claims about Fast & Furious are true,then he was willing to cause Americans to die to enact gun control). This is not ”Jimmy Carter’s second term”, Jimmy Carter,Clinton,Kerry etc were buffoons by contrast,(to paraphrase Rush Limbaugh) Nor is Obama Peter Keating. Long ago,back in 2008 ,Robert Tracinski remarked that Obama was a chamelon ”like Peter Keating”,that statement,though wrong,was at least somewhat understandable in 2008. This is not 2008. There is no justification for that belief now,none,(and so far as I know, Mr.Tracinski himself jettisoned that belief around 2009) Can you picture Peter Keating ramming through Obamacare? Comparing Obama to Keating,or Obama to Clinton ,is as absurd as comparing the Republican Guard of Iraq to the Revolutionary Guard of Iran because “just as people told us that the Republican Guard was fearsome,and it wasn’t,so they are now crying wolf about the Revolutionary Guard”. Ask the Israeli soldiers who fought both the PLO and Hezbollah in Lebanon whether Hezbollah–which was trained by the Revolutionary Guard–was “no different” than the PLO . Morally they weren’t. Hezbollah,however,at the height of the conflict,nearly inflicted a one-to-one casualty ratio against the IDF. They were that well disciplined,and that tenacious. They are not buffoons,and in the political realm,neither is Obama. People sometime forget that the last time the boy cried wolf, there was an actual wolf. And speaking of the Islamic Republic of Iran,those who see no difference between Romney and Obama on foreign policy should note that it is Obama, and not Romney,who has leaked operational information which could cripple the one program–the cyberwarfare program–that has slowed down Iran’s nuclear program. If that program is defeated, Israel will be forced to stage a strike alone,and absent American support, (indeed against ”American” opposition),it will be unlikely to succeed.
Should that occur we may face a nuclear first strike on the United States, or on Israel. But Romney won’t stop Iran? Perhaps not,but I doubt that he will be trying to sabotage Israel’s efforts,Obama by contrast,IS DOING THAT RIGHT NOW. There is absolutely no reason why we must vote for Romney in 2016,certainly not if he betrays us,but it will take time to build up a alternative to the current choice of evils that we are offered. But back to Obama. Far from being Keating,if I had to name a Atlas Shrugged character that he is most like,it would be–at a minimum– Walter Breckenridge,& at worst,one of the Starnes heirs, or Ellsworth Toohey,or Floyd Ferris. ( And yes I am quite serious) Footnotes: fn1. I doubt that Obama will destroy the U.S., indeed the only possible way that I think that he could reasonably do so would be if he declared martial law after a terrorist attack ,or a nuclear first strike,and attempted to impose an Alien and Sedition like bill,that could be the trigger for massive civil unrest ( a “civil war” of a kind,though of “The Troubles” variety rather than the American Civil War) But I regard this as a improbable scenario.
Olympics held moments of silence before,but not for Israeli atheletes murdered at Munich #tcot #xcot #jcot
Jewish Blood Is Cheap
The real reason the Olympic Committee refuses to commemorate the Israeli athletes murdered in Munich
By Deborah E. Lipstadt
”Why the IOC refusal? The Olympic Committee’s official explanation is that the games are apolitical. The
families were repeatedly told by long-time IOC President Juan Samaranch that the Olympic movement
avoided political issues. He seemed to have forgotten that at the 1996 opening ceremony he spoke about
the Bosnian war. Politics were also present at the 2002 games, which opened with a minute of silence
for the victims of 9/11.
The families have also been told that a commemoration of this sort was inappropriate at the opening of
such a celebratory event. However, the IOC has memorialized other athletes who died “in the line of
duty.” At the 2010 winter games, for example, there was a moment of silence to commemorate an
athlete who died in a training accident.”
George H.W. Bush: ‘Who the hell is Grover Norquist anyway?’ – The Hill’s On The Money
RRD:The man who betrayed Reagan’s legacy,supported gun control,broke innumerable promises,gave us Souter,demanded that Israel not respond to SCUD missile attacks so as to appease anti-semitic savages,betrayed Israel at Madrid,crawled into bed with the Saudis,dismissed the Fatwa against Rushdie as something Rushdie was milking as a publicity stunt
,spat in the face of the Ukranians with his ”Chicken Kiev” speech,called Saddam Hussein “worse than Hitler”,& then called for the Iraqis to rise up, and then gave permission to the man he called “worse than Hitler” to exterminate them,this wretch has now urged the GOP to do Obama’s bidding & raise taxes.Let me explain this to this disgrace of a man:Obama’s goal is to raise spending and then declare it is “irresponsible” not to raise taxes,spending will then be raised again with more “responsible” tax increases to follow,and on and on until everyone in this country is beggared while Obama’s successors live like the feudal royalty whom they secretly long to become.(Why do you think Democrats are so enamored with the idea of ”Camelot”).Norquist is buddy-buddy with Islamists and deserves to be damned for that ,but on this he is correct.
If the GOP wants to commit suicide then it should raise taxes,if it wishes to go the way of the Whigs(which it replaced) it should remain tied to the Bush royal family,if it wishes to survive it needs to embrace the Teaparty and what it stands for(at its best ,not its worst):That is, Limited Government and spending restraint.
After an Israeli Strike on Iran :: Daniel Pipes
…”Michael Eisenstadt and Michael Knights of the Washington Institute for Near Eastern Policy,…. provide an excellent guide to possible scenarios in “Beyond Worst -Case Analysis: Iran’s Likely Responses to an Israeli Preventive Strike.”…
RRD:I am less sanguine than Pipes and Eisenstadt,and Knights.However ,I am less sanguine for precisely the same reason that would lead me to support a strike on Tehran’s nuclear facilities as a last resort:I think that deterrence will not work.
That said,Pipes is correct when he notes the peculiar ”reasoning” of some who argue that Israel & the U.S. can ”live with” a nuclear armed Tehran:A Tehran with a nuclear bomb is deterrable,a Tehran without one will go berserk if struck.
Why the supposedly “rational” & ”non-nuclear seeking” Mullahs would wage a all out war over their being denied a ”peaceful” nuclear program is never adequately explained.
There are no good options here.
Only different levels & types of dangers.
A note:In case the above was unclear,I believe a military strike may be necessary as a LAST RESORT,should efforts at sabotage fail.
Let me add that I am speaking of a military strike on Tehran’s nuclear facilities,NOT a ground invasion,which I oppose.
RRD:Just so that we are on the same page:a theocratic anti-woman,anti-gay,anti-religious minority political party(Norsefire anyone?)is swept into office after we were told that this would never happen.The new President is on record as saying that he wants to make the neighboring country’s capital the capital of their new religious empire.
On top of this the Military has announced that it will retain much of the political power.
And this is supposed to be some kind of blow for freedom?
RRD:Odd,I thought if ”we left them alone,they would leave us alone”.
