Oy Bernie! What a putz!

“What is on my mind?” The Bernie Sanders 10,000 Dead quote.

I ask how is it possible that a person running for the Presidency of the United States can be so lacking of knowledge. I see by his inane statement that Bernie is like the majority of the world and has become totally duped by biased media.

Consider if you would that when Hamas or one of it's proxies in Gaza fires rockets or shoots mortars, from time to time indiscriminately against Israeli civilian residents. Every movement the IDF makes and every sortie conducted by the IAF in response to an uncalled for attack on Israeli civilians, is covered endlessly by massive media coverage from inside Gaza by well placed Pallywood “Palestinian Stringers” –local residents paid for new footage by the news media.

No foreign news correspondent or non-Israeli politician ever dares to mention that the biased footage comes from these pre placed “Palestinian Stringers” teams, under Hamas supervision, inside Gaza who rush to show the damage from Israel’s response. 

This cynical arrangement makes out the news image that ONLY Israel is the “villain” in the minds eye of the unknowing viewer. The footage of “collateral damage” many times of “Human Shields” together with the damning catch phrases used by news desk commentators of; the “disproportionate use of force” and “indiscriminate attacks”  brainwashes the duped and unknowing into condemning Israel outright for “aggression” and “over response”.

So when Israel retaliates for attacks on its civilians, massive protests by “Bamboozled pro-Palestinian Liberals” erupt and sweep through major cities around the world. The violent and utterly disgusting virulent anger revealed by these “duped Palestinian sympathizers” could only be justified if Israel were in fact actually slaughtering the thousands of Palestinian civilians as Bernie alludes to.

No news correspondent or politician ever dares to ask or think why the world media NEVER covers similar conflicts through out the world the same way and with the same misleading terminology, commentary or headlines as they use in reports against Israel.

No news correspondent or politician ever points out that the Palestinians / Hamas, who have received millions and millions of aid dollars to build badly needed housing, hospitals, schools and proper infrastructure for water supply, electricity and proper sewage systems to treat raw sewage never do so but instead either pocket the funds or at best assemble more weaponry. Why is there, God forbid!, NEVER any public outcry against the Palestinian "Leadership"?
Have you ever thought for a moment; "Why is it that Israel is consistently singled out for what is extensively the shortcomings of the Palestinians for the improvement of the housing, infrastructure and health of their own people!"
No one ever, ever questions or criticizes the Hamas leadership regarding the reason for the Israeli limitations on Gaza.
The fact that the Hamas leadership is so bent on acquiring weaponry and building tunnels and positions to launch attack on Israel that they willing to deprive their own citizenry from basic necessities. They are depriving their own people because they want to destroy Israel and to take back all that they lost in the Nacbah of 1948.  

No news correspondent or politician ever points out that the in deference to our enemies Israeli civilians have NOT been murdered in massive amounts because Israel builds bomb shelters, reinforces schools, kindergartens, Day Care Centers and defensive locations for the protection of our civilians, Jews and Arabs alike, from the indiscriminatory rockets and mortar rounds fired at our civilian population.

No news correspondent or politician wonders or queries the viewer audience why there is no arranged massive response of angry protesters like the herd of “Bamboozled pro-Palestinian Liberal sympathizers” taking to the streets to protest the savagery of the Islamic State. No matter how many thousands of Arabs are butchered in Syria, Iraq, and Libya there is just silence and empty thoroughfares.

When was the last time you saw a protest about any event that received the massive news coverage, let alone the anger that Israeli DEFENSIVE actions against a genocidal terrorist group does?

But of course this does not and will not happen.

Because of this "Bamboozling" through biased media reports naïve college students who wish to stand out and be recognized by their professors and peers in almost all the major universities in the west realize “It is ‘Chic’ to be anti-Israel.
To be considered for the status of being classified as a "progressive caring for humanity" and equal rights #Blacklivesmatter member of today’s “IN” society  one must be identified with BDS and the "Palestinian underdog".

Students on campuses today aspire for the status symbol of the Khaffiyeh and Palestinian flag as it was with Che Guevara, the Viet Cong flag and the Maoists in Bernie's days on campus. 

They memorize the Mantra and the “Battle Cries” if you will or slogans against the “Occupation” by “Apartheid” Israel who is carrying out “Genocide”. The battle against Israel and of course the Evils of Zionism, referred to by the use of the terms; “ZioNazi” or “Israhell” has replaced all the other political battles for many young men and women.

The situation is just as I have pointed out before in a previous Blog entry of mine regarding Yasser Arafat's "Negation Of Israel Plan" outlined in his infamous Zionism equals racism speech inverted much of the world's perception of the Middle East: transforming tiny Israel from its natural role of "David" against the massive Arab population and lands, to one of "Goliath" against the "stateless," "oppressed," and "occupied" "Palestinians.

During Yasser Arafat's visit to Hanoi in 1970, Arafat was particularly struck by Ho Chi Minh’s success in mobilizing left-wing sympathizers in Europe and the United States to the Vietnamese cause. Ho’s chief strategist, Võ Nguyên Giáp, a General in the Vietnam People's Army and a politician, made it clear to Arafat and his lieutenants that in order to succeed, they too needed to redefine the terms of their struggle. 
Giap’s counsel was simple but profound: the PLO needed to work in a way that concealed its real goals, permitted strategic deception, and give the appearance of moderation.

Arafat sent his adjutant, Khalil Ibrahim al-Wazir - Abu Jihad (later the leader of the PLO’s military operations), to North Vietnam to study the strategy and tactics of guerrilla warfare. Arafat was struck by Ho Chi Minh’s success with left-wing sympathizers in the United States and Europe.

Young college student activists on American campuses were enthusiastically following the North Vietnamese "line" in re-framing the Vietnam war from a Communist assault on the south to a struggle for national liberation.
“Progressive” activists on American campuses, enthusiastically following the line of North Vietnamese operatives, had succeeded in re-framing the Vietnam War from a Communist conquest of the South into a struggle for national liberation.

An insight into this North Vietnamese PR campaign, which provided the key to the Communist victory and a lesson for PLO operatives, was offered by Ho’s chief strategist, General Giap: “Stop talking about annihilating Israel and instead turn your terror war into a struggle for human rights. Then you will have the American people eating out of your hand.”

At the same time that he was getting advice from General Giap, Arafat was also being tutored by Muhammad Yazid, who had been minister of information in two Algerian wartime governments (1958-1962):
“Wipe out the argument that Israel is a small state whose existence is threatened by the Arab states, or the reduction of the Palestinian problem to a question of refugees; instead, present the Palestinian struggle as a struggle for liberation like the others. Wipe out the impression …that in the struggle between the Palestinians and the Zionists, the Zionist is the underdog. Now it is the Arab who is oppressed and victimized in his existence because he is not only facing the Zionists but also world imperialism.” 
This new approach has become wildly successful, especially with the moderate Left, which had generally supported the somewhat socialist state of Israel. At the 2001 UN Durban Conference on Racism, this approach was refined, focused and amplified. Now Israel was presented as not only denying Palestinians their rights, but as doing so out of an essential racism. The false analogy with South African apartheid was pushed and similar remedies were proposed: de-legitimization, boycotts, divestment, etc.

Thus in addition to the power of the anti-colonialist theme, the potent element of racism has been added in the aftermath of Ferguson as I pointed out in yet another blog.

Bernie Sander's recent Tweet regarding his intention to "apologize" shows once again the success of Arafat's "Grand Strategy". Since the incident in Ferguson Missouri the horror of America's own racist history had been coming to the surface — along with powerful feelings of guilt. It has not been difficult for Israel’s enemies to make anti-Zionism almost a religion on the Left, especially on college campuses.

And the first Jew who has a chance to be in the White House has chosen to swallow the “Big Lie” rather then acquiring the truth. Kumbayah Bernie!

  1. If you want to smack Bernie Sanders, you don't have cross the ocean to hear what he has to say about Israel. He has an absolutely ridiculously childish view of life in general. I would say that his views on Israel exactly follow his line of thought (or lack thereof) on every other topic that he has spoken about. Just the idea of ignoring the failure of socialism as an economic practicality from every place it was ever tried and suggesting we give it another go round should make him a laughingstock.
