It is not as if they don’t warn us

Well, if only we had listened to the ravings of the very mad Adolf back in 1924 or thereabouts and he wasn’t exactly keeping anything a secret when he was writing “Mein Kampf”, was he? No, even if we didn’t get the chance to read his other “masterpiece”, his “Zweitesbuch” until after the old world order had collapsed along with his new world order, Adolf really meant what he was saying back in 1924 and, after all, he did repeat it quite a few times, didn’t he? No, we cannot complain that we weren’t given fair warning.

Similary, we should have no illusions when it comes to Israel. There they are sitting in occupied territory, territory that is illegally occupied under international law, as occupied territory invariably is, and we get Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman telling us in no uncertain terms that the freeze on construction of the illegal settlements, that is in fact not a freeze at all, is only a piece of political expediency and that “It is clear to everyone that in 10 months, we will be building again full force; anyone who understands anything knows this.”

Of course, what this means is that in ten months time they will be telling all and sundry that they really made a grand effort to accomodate the Palestinians, but that the Palestinians didn’t reciprocate and now they have the right to build even more than they have been up until now. Oh, déjà vu,  been there before, and there was Adolf telling us all what he was going to do to Poland back in 1924, and and a few more times after that, and what did we get on the 1st of September 1939:
 “Polen hat heute nacht zum erstenmal auf unserem eigenen Territoriumauch mit bereits regulären Soldaten geschossen. Seit 5:45 Uhr wirdjetzt zurückgeschossen! Und von jetzt ab wird Bombe mit Bombe vergolten.” Or, to put it simply, “it is all their fault, they started it, they are the baddies and we are the goodies.”

Of course, by 1939 people were beginning to cotton on to our megalomanic Adolf, although it would take Friedrich Meinecke’s  “Deutsche Katastrophe”, the Holocaust, the madness of “Operation Barbarossa, hundreds of millions misplaced and dead, Auschwitz, and the old world order being turned upside down to defeat Hitler’s “new world order”. One wonders when we are going to see through Mr Lieberman and his buddies!

Well, maybe when they have their next “defensive” war, perhaps when they attack Iran “to stop Iran attacking them”, or maybe, just maybe, when they have wiped out their next thousand or few thousands, or even maybe when they get round to their first hundreds of thousands, and then tell us all that they were doing it to defend themselves. Maybe, maybe then we are going to get suspicious and all of that is going to be after they have had their own little “Munich” and after they have got their own little “Czechoslovakia”, more or less, delivered on a plate in the form of a big chunk of the occupied territories, because, after all, nobody, but nobody, wants to deprive them of what is “rightfully” theirs.

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.
