Democracies and Demonstrators

The ‘Jerusalem Post’ today, reports an Obama interview with ‘Newsweek’, where he said, “I understand very clearly that Israel considers Iran an existential threat, and given some of the statements that have been made by [Iranian] President [Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad, you can understand why.” (1) This is absolute nonsense and if Iran were to acquire a nuclear weapon, would they use it? Of course not, because if they did, they know very well that that would be the end of Iran. No, what it would mean, if Iran had “the bomb” is that our Zionist bully boys might not get away with quite as much bullying. Furthermore, if an Iranian atomic bomb is hardly a threat to Israel, what threat could it possibly be to the United States? The answer to that is as obvious as the answer to the question, are American and Israeli interests identical? Again, they are most certainly not and they never were! However, the “chutzpah” of our zany Zionists is such that they would like us all to believe that they are. Indeed, while I am not exactly a fan of “Uncle Sam’s” geopolitical shennanigans, I can, sometimes, see the machiavellian logic behind them. Hegemony in the Gulf and Central Asia, divide and rule in black Africa, keeping the thumb on the Balkans. It all makes sense if you are pursuing a strategy aimed at ensuring global hegemony. However, what possible strategic use is Israel since the fall of the Soviet Union? Oh, but I forgot, it’s a democracy ….. right let me think about that for a second and move onto my next little story.
Walking through Munich today, I was surprised to see a demonstration by Tamili men, women and children. who were protesting against the massacre of their families by the Singalese Army. It made me stop and think for a minute and I had to think about why there are so few protests by Arab Israelis and one of the reasons for that is that, after twelve of them were shot dead back in 2000, ….. well, they are a wee bit scared. Yes, sometimes Munich can seem quite a nice place and there was the Bavarian Police letting the Tamils do something that you not only won’t find them doing in Colombo but also something that Israeli Arabs would be frightened of doing in Israel; they were all sitting down blocking the traffic. Yes, this place is far from perfect but when I look at Palestine or Sri Lanka, I just have to think that it can get a lot worst. Anyway, “Uncle Sam” doesn’t really have any good reasons for supporting Zionistan and it is time for the Sinhalese Army to stop massacring the Tamil people.

There are a lot of poor bastards out there being used and abused; it is just not cricket "old bean". Something tells me that ignorance is not bliss, but is, in fact, simply ignorance and in the global village we cannot look the other way.
