The Lies of (((Sam Harris)))

(((Sam Harris))) is an atheist and anti-religion crusader who’s about as secular a Jew as you could even find. He’s made his claim to fame as a crusader against the Muslim religion. Jewish identity dies hard even when it’s as obscured as his is. Just to demonstrate this, let us look at  the endless list of falsehoods that (((Sam))) dredges out in support of the Genocide Jews in Israel against the “jihadists” of Hamas.

Lie: First of all, he notes that Hezbollah is also “jihadist.” This moron who claims to be an expert on the Muslim religion actually knows nothing about at at all and he comes off as just as ignorant as any (((Israel))) shill out there. Hezbollah, whatever it is, is not “jihadist.” I’m not even sure what jihadist even means but he seems to be interpreting it to mean radical Sunni Islam that wants a global Caliphate, otherwise known as the Global Jihad crowd. Hezbollah has nothing to do with these people and in fact they hate them.

I believe Jocko Willink suggested something like this on his podcast (as many of you know Jocko is a Navy Seal who led the Seals in the battle of Ramadi. So he knows a lot about urban warfare and counterinsurgency).

One of Harris’ heroes is some maniac who fought the Iraqi people in Ramadi in the insane Iraq War which this crazy crusader Harris obviously supported. Apparently the Iraq War was a war against “jihadism” because Saddam was a “jihadist.” It wasn’t and neither was he, but it sure did a great job of jumpstarting the Global Jihad that Harris hates so much. Harris can’t see his own anti-Muslim jihad’s role in creating the very beast he rails against.

similar idea was recently described in an article by Bret Stephens in the New York Times, recommending that Israel provide humanitarian corridors for civilians to leave northern Gaza and safe zones in the South and perhaps in Israel itself where people can be protected.

(((Bret Stephens))) is a lousy rightwing neocon Jew who writes for the (((New York Slimes))). I guess this rightwing jerk is another of Harris’ heroes? Anti-jihadism makes the worst bedfellows. Also Israel obviously will not do anything of these things, so why petition them?

It would certainly take a long time, because Hamas has spent most of Gaza’s resources – billions of dollars in humanitarian aid meant for the Palestinians – building hundreds of miles of tunnels and fortifying them with food, water, and fuel so that they could wage jihad, all while the world holds Israel responsible for the deprivations of the Palestinian people.

This is apparently completely untrue. There are two separate budgets, one of the state and one for the army. They have different funding mechanisms.

The Palestinians of Gaza have been deprived of food, water, and fuel – and most other good things – by Hamas.

No it’s the deliberate sadism of the Genocide Jews in Israel who are responsible for all of this.

So, I can’t say whether this siege idea really is a good one. But if a siege of this sort were possible, it would have obvious advantages. It would signal a clear commitment to not harming innocent civilians –

Israel’s not doing this. They’ve opted for their specialty – genocide. Why ask them to be nice? They’re not going to.

because Hamas is using their entire society as human shields…

This doesn’t appear to be true either.

My friend Christopher Hitchens was extremely critical of Israel and openly supportive of Palestinian statehood. But he wasn’t even slightly confused about the problem of jihad.

Here we run into this endless problem that the Palestinian armed groups, in particular, Hamas, are “jihadists.” Notice elsewhere he discusses jihadists as Al Qaeda, ISIS, and their ilk. Every time Muslims take up arms to fight injustice, it’s an Islamic jihad or jihad. The conflict in Palestine is primarily nationalist in character. Hamas and Islamic Jihad are Islamists, but they are moderating all the time, especially Hamas.

Both are closely allied with Hezbollah and Iran, both Shia Islamic entities. Shia Muslims simply do not engage in the sort of Islamic jihad a la Al Qaeda and ISIS that he keeps referring to here. Shia Islam does not try to establish a caliphate. Shia Islam in all of these cases is nationalist and jihadism like Al Qaeda, ISIS, and the rest is never nationalist. In fact, they hate nationalism as they think it divides the umma.

And the Shia Islam of Iran and Hezbollah is remarkably moderate as far as Islam goes. Shia Islam feels that Islam must be updated to keep up with the times, like with the Catholic Church. Sunni Islam always has back to basics tendencies like Protestantism and there are always Sunnis who wish to dial back the clock and live in the year 700. You can go into the Hezbollah area in South Lebanon and order a drink in a bar. Jihadists?

The religious leader of Hezbollah issued a ruling allowing for female masturbation. It might seem silly, but I believe Islam even opposes that. The idea was that women need to satisfy themselves somehow if they are unmarried. In Iran prostitution is basically legal and allowed under the rubric of “temporary marriage.” The leadership is thinking of fully legalizing it under the same rubric mostly to protect the women. Jihadists?

Women actually have a good deal of rights in Shia Islam, more than they do in many Sunni countries. The hijab has been moving further and further back on women’s heads for a long time now, and many women don’t even wear one in Tehran. The last I heard was that nothing much is done about this.

Iran is extremely nationalist in its outlook as is Hezbollah, the pro-Iranian militias in the Iraqi military, Ansar Allah, and the Syrian and Lebanese governments.

There’s the pressing question of how America and our allies can support Israel while avoiding WW3. I certainly wonder whether a war with Iran is now more or less inevitable – and, of course, Iran is directly allied with Russia.

So he’s advocating war with Iran. Note that like all liberals, he hates antifascist Russia and instead sides with Nazi Ukraine.

There have been nearly 50,000 acts of Islamic terrorism in the last 40 years—and the French group that maintains a database of these attacks [https://www.fondapol.org/en/study/islamist-terrorist-attacks-in-the-world-1979-2021/] considers that to be an undercount. Ninety percent of them have occurred in Muslim countries. Most have nothing to do with Israel or the Jews.

He’s conflating the legitimate resistance against occupation in the West Bank and Gaza that Hamas and the rest are fighting against with “Islamic terrorism.” It’s nonsense.

and there is no question that some not-so-innocent civilians would arrive at humanitarian checkpoints as suicide bombers, and there would an infuriating loss of civilian life there even as Israel took great pains to protect it. But an approach like this would have denied Hamas a long series of propaganda victories based on the terrible imagery that has been coming out of Gaza.

Since when is Israel going to great pains to protect innocents? They’re waging a genocide, dammit.

And they totally discount the role that religious beliefs play in inspiring groups like Hamas and al-Qaeda, or even the Islamic State – to the point where it would be impossible for a jihadist to prove that he was doing anything for religious reasons.

Once again, conflating Hamas with Al Qaeda and ISIS. Hamas has been moderating for some time now. They cut ties with the Muslim Brotherhood recently. They rewrote their Charter to take out all the antisemitism and said their beef is with Zionist colonizers in Israel, not with Jews.

Everything I’m saying about the problem of jihadism is about the problem of jihadism – the triumphal belief by some percentage of the world’s Muslims that they must conquer the world for the one true faith through force, and that Paradise awaits anyone who would sacrifice his or her life to that end.

Once again, conflating Hamas with global jihad. Hamas is not part of the global jihad movement. They’re not out to conquer the world. They’re only concerned with Palestine.

In 2014, six jihadis affiliated with the Pakistani Taliban attacked a school in Peshawar. These jihadis came from outside of Pakistan – there was a Chechen, two Afghans, and three Arabs. They murdered 145 people, 132 of whom were children. They burned a teacher alive in front of her students, and then killed all the children they could get their hands on.

They didn’t take any hostages. They had no list of demands. They intended to die to achieve martyrdom. And they did die, so they got at least half of what they wanted. It is very difficult for secular people to understand how this behavior could be possible. They assume only madmen would do this sort of thing.

Conflating Hamas with the jihadist nutjobs in the Pakistani Taliban.

Human life only has value among you worldly materialist thinkers. For us, this human life is only a tiny, meaningless fragment of our existence. Our real destination is the Hereafter. We don’t just believe it exists, we know it does.

Death is not the end of life. It is the beginning of existence in a world much more beautiful than this. As you know, the [Urdu] word for death is “intiqaal.” It means “transfer,” not “end.”

Paradise is for those of pure hearts. All children have pure hearts. They have not sinned yet… They have not yet been corrupted by [their kafir parents]. We did not end their lives. We gave them new ones in Paradise where they will be loved more than you can imagine.

They will be rewarded for their martyrdom. After all, we also martyr ourselves with them. The last words they heard were the slogan of Takbeer [“Allah u Akbar”].

Allah Almighty says Himself in Surhah Al-Imran [3:169-170] that they are not dead.

You will never understand this. If your faith is pure, you will not mourn them, but celebrate their birth into Paradise.

Well this is how Muslims think, but it has nothing to do with “jihadism.”

Given the history of genocidal anti-Semitism, which persists even now, mostly in the Muslim world, given that the Jews have been run out of every other country in the Middle East and North Africa where they lived for centuries, if any people deserve a state of their own, organized on any premise they want, it’s the Jews.

In 1939, the SS St. Louis, a ship carrying over 900 Jews seeking to escape the Holocaust was denied entry into Cuba, and the United States, and Canada, and then forced to return to Europe, where many of those Jews ended up in the ovens of Auschwitz. In my view, that’s all the justification for Israel one needs. Never again should Jews have to beg to stand on some dry patch of earth, only to be denied one, and then be systematically murdered.

Jews still live in a number of Middle Eastern and North African states in significant numbers, especially in Iran, Tunisia, and Morocco.

I understand this argument for a Jewish state, and I don’t know what to say about it. The Jewish state doesn’t seem to protecting Jews very well these days though. I don’t think that any huge genocide of Jews is on the horizon in this world. The last go-round was a doozy, and I honestly think that most of the world simply doesn’t have the stomach for another huge massacre of Jews of any size. And no, 725 Jewish civilians killed on 10-7 was not another Holocaust or genocide, sorry. 725 Jews died. In the Holocaust, 6 million Jews died. Numbers matter.

If anyone has any answers about how we can assuage Jewish fears of another genocide, I’m all ears.

…literally tripping over themselves in their eagerness to demonstrate that they cannot distinguish between those who intentionally kill babies and those who inadvertently kill them, having taken great pains to avoid killing them, while defending themselves against the very people who have just intentionally tortured and killed innocent men, women, and yes…babies…

Hamas didn’t kill any babies, and Israel seems to be deliberately killing a lot of babies or at least engaging in acts that they know will kill a lot of them. And again, Hamas didn’t kill any babies.

If you are waving the flag of people who murder noncombatants intentionally, killing parents in front of their children and children in front of their parents, burning people alive at a music festival devoted to “peace”, decapitating others, and dragging their dismembered bodies through the streets, all to shouts of “God is Great.”

Palestinians didn’t burn anyone alive at a music festival. Israel did. I’m not aware of any dismembered body being dragged through the streets. Israel has been doing a lot of killing parents in front of children and vice versa in Gaza.

If you are recognizing the humanity of actual barbarians while demonizing the people who actually worry about war crimes and who drop leaflets and call cell phones for days in an effort to get noncombatants to leave specific buildings before they are bombed because those buildings sit on top of tunnels filled with genocidal lunatics…

Israel doesn’t worry about civilian casualties. They don’t drop those leaflets or do those cell calls anymore. They bomb without any warnings at all. That’s why they’re murdering so many people in this war. You aren’t going to hit a tunnel deep underground by bombing a building on top of the ground. At best you will collapse the building. There are tunnels under every building in Gaza. Hamas are genocidal lunatics? I don’t believe that the Palestinians have ever tried to genocide the Jews.

Gaza is only an “open air prison” because its democratically elected government is a jihadist organization that is eager to martyr all Palestinians for the pleasure of killing Jews. A rational government in Gaza that cared about the fate of its citizens could have made something beautiful out of that strip of land on the Mediterranean – or at least not awful. But Hamas has spent billions of dollars on terrorism.

No all of the underdevelopment in Gaza lies at the feet of Israel.

The line you keep hearing from defenders of Israel – that “if the Palestinians put down their weapons, there would be peace; if the Israelis put down their weapons, there would be a genocide” – happens to be true.

I doubt if it’s true. I read radical resistance sites all the time, and all they ever say about Israeli Jews is that they all have to leave. Iran has specifically stated that they have no intention of throwing the Jews into the sea. They only want a plebiscite on the future of the region.

We have LGBTQ activists supporting Hamas – when they wouldn’t survive a day in Gaza because Hamas throws anyone suspected of being gay off of rooftops. They’re directly supported by Iran, where gay people are regularly hanged.

I’m not aware that Hamas has ever thrown a gay person off of a roof. The only people who did that were ISIS. Iran did kill many gays in the early days, but they stopped in 2009. In recent years, two young men were hanged for raping teenage boys.

We’ve got feminist organizations like CodePink going all in for Hamas and accusing the Israelis of genocide. Do they understand how Hamas treats women? Did CodePink support the women of Iran who were thrown in prison and even killed for daring to show their hair in public? Do they realize that women are treated like property throughout the Muslim world and that this is not an accident?

How do Hamas treat women. Hamas has not implemented Sharia law in Gaza. They refuse to do so. No woman was thrown into prison or killed in Iran for showing her hair. That’s just a lie.

Hamas put its headquarters in Gaza under a hospital. Let me say that again: Hamas put its headquarters in Gaza under a hospital.

This isn’t true at all. This has been proven to be an Israeli lie.

Hamas is telling people to stay in Gaza and has even physically prevented them from leaving, so that they will be killed by Israeli bombs.

Hamas hasn’t prevented anyone from leaving Gaza. Israel and Egypt are preventing that.

No one cares less about Palestinian women and children than Hamas does.

This most certainly is not the case.

Of course, Israel should hold itself to the highest ethical standards for waging war. For two reasons: One, because it should. It is right for the IDF to do whatever it can to minimize the loss of innocent life. And, two, they should hold themselves to the highest ethical standards because the rest of the world will hold them to impossible ones.

Well, they are failing grotesquely on both grounds and they are waging an out and out genocide in Gaza.

But Assad has killed hundreds of thousands of his fellow Muslims in Syria.

“Assad” has not killed hundreds of thousands of Muslims in Syria. There’s a civil war which has resulted in 500,000 dead. “Assad” didn’t kill all those people.

However long it takes, members of Hamas, Hezbollah, al Qaeda, the Islamic State, al Shehab, Boko Haram, Pakistani Taliban, and every other jihadist organization on Earth should be made to understand every day of their lives that the martyrdom they seek will be granted to them.

See, once again, he lumped in nationalists Hezbollah and Hamas with Sunni global jihadists Al Qaeda, ISIS, Al-Shehab, Boko Haram, and the Pakistani Taliban. It’s ridiculous.

Jihadism has to be destroyed in every way it can be destroyed – logistically, economically, informationally, but also in the most material sense, which means killing a lot of jihadists.

The Palestinian resistance, Iran, and Hezbollah are not “jihadists.”

Back in 2016, I released an episode of this podcast titled What Do Jihadists Really Want?, based on an issue of the magazine Dabiq, put out by the Islamic State.

Conflation of ISIS with Hezbollah and Hamas.

Now, jihadists themselves are not a unified front. There is a very deep schism between Sunni and Shia – despite the fact that some groups will collaborate across it, as we see with Hamas and the Iranian regime.

There are no Shia jihadists and Hamas are not “jihadists” either.

If you want a totally painless way to do this, watch Hotel Mumbai – it’s a great film that depicts the terrorist attacks in Mumbai in 2008, by the Pakistani group Lashkar-e-Taiba. If you’ve forgotten, around a dozen jihadists killed over 160 people in Mumbai, many at the Taj Hotel…

Those are LET Sunni global jihadists.

In any case, the Jews in Israel are “indigenous people.”

Not at all. The Zionists came with the explicit intention of colonizing that whole land to create a Jewish state and it was their intention throw all of the Arabs out from the very start.

There has been a continuous presence of Jews in what is now Israel for thousands of years.

So what? There have been continuous presences of all sorts of people all over the world as minorities for a very long time. It doesn’t give that minority a right to immigrate en masse to the place for the purpose of colonizing it, forming an ethnic state, and throwing out the natives.

Most of the recent immigrants – Jews from Iraq, and Syria, and Yemen, and Libya, and other Muslim-majority countries were driven from their homes by their Muslim neighbors after 1948 in collective punishment for the founding of Israel. Is anyone talking about their right of return?

They do have a right to return, at least in Iraq and Syria and most other places. Bottom line is none of them want to go back.

Incidentally, if a history of land theft and oppression were sufficient to produce genocidal terrorism, where are the Native American suicide bombers? Where are the Tibetan Buddhist suicide bombers?

The Tibetans didn’t get their land stolen. There was no genocide of Tibetans. The Native Americans laid down their arms in 1890. Anyway, Palestinians are not genocidal.

…jihadism is real; its intentions toward the Jews, infidels, and apostates are genocidal…

Perhaps, but Hezbollah, Iran, Hamas and the Palestinians are not part of the global jihad.

Because if the future is going to be remotely tolerable, the vast majority of Muslims have to disavow jihadism and unite with non-Muslims in fighting it.

Once again, there is no jihadism with Iran, Hezbollah, the Palestinians, or the Houthis.

It will also entail that the religious lunatics on the Jewish side get sidelined. As I said, the building of settlements has been a continuous provocation.

Yes, but Israel will never stop building settlements. Israel has been getting increasingly rightwing for 15-20 years now and the trend is accelerating. The pro-settlement faction of Israeli society has been growing for all this time and is now completely dominant. It is projected to get even more extreme with time. Furthermore, Jewish religious nationalism has also been growing in Israel for all this time. This trend is also increasing. So neither of these things he wants are going to happen. So what’s the point of advocating for them?

Just think about what happened at the Supernova music festival: At least 260 people were murdered in the most sadistically gruesome ways possible. Decapitated, burned alive, blown up with grenades…

No one at the music festival was decapitated or burned alive and I doubt if many or even any were killed with grenades. Israel made all this up. Also most people killed at that festival were killed by Israel.

Please absorb this fact: for the jihadist, all of this sadism – the torture and murder of helpless, terrified people – is an act of worship. This is the sacrament. This isn’t some nauseating departure from the path to God. This isn’t stalled spiritual progress, much less sin. This is what you do for the glory of God. This is what Muhammad himself did.

Yes there’s a problem with Islam in that whenever Muslims go to war, they tend to act like this. But that’s not global jihad. It’s just the way that Muslims naturally fight wars.

It’s too late for all of this “Why doesn’t Israel act nice?” stuff.

Well, can we ask them not to commit genocides?

But you have to understand that the people who butchered over 1,400 innocent men, women, and children in Israel on October 7th were practicing their religion, sincerely.

The fight is nationalist, not religious. Only 1,150 were killed and 450 of them were security forces. 725 civilians were killed, 475 by Israel and 250 by the Palestinians. So the Palestinians killed 250 innocent men, women, and children, not 1,400.

The Nakba: Anatomy of a Crime

There was no excuse for the Jews throwing the Arabs off the land in 1948. We conquered Germany and Italy in World War 2, right? So did we throw the Germans and Italians out of their towns and cities and annex them to the US?

We’ve fought plenty of wars since WW2 against all sorts of foes and we never threw the residents out of their towns so we could steal the land and make it part of the US. You don’t get to do that in wars! All wars of conquest were made illegal after WW2 at the Geneva Conventions. You can defeat an enemy, sure, but you can’t throw him off his land and then steal it for yourself!

I’ve been through a long list of Arab towns “depopulated” by the Jews in 1948. Bottom line is that in almost every single case, the Arabs were literally driven out of town at gunpoint. In a number of cases they were packed into trucks and taken to Gaza or Lebanon.

They only fled in a few cases, and in those cases, they fled because the Jews were committing massacres and then sending spies to Arab villages to tell them about the murders to get them to leave. So they terrorized them into leaving. And the ones who did leave voluntarily often tried to come back. Even the ones who were thrown out often tried to come back, in a number of cases petitioning the government to be allowed to return. Some Arabs were allowed to return to their villages, especially in the Galilee, but most were not.

Some cities were cleansed of Arabs, and Arabs were forced to march through the desert out of town. One famous march was out of Jaffa, where the Arab population was expelled. A number of Arabs died on the trek through the desert.

In most cases, after the Arabs have been thrown out, the Jews dynamited all of the buildings in the village. You can see that the Jews are doing exactly this in Gaza right now. What’s going on in Gaza right now is simply Nakba Part 2. There are even massacres and mass executions just like there were then. It’s the exact same project. Nothing has changed from 1948 until now.

Bottom line is the Jews fought this war for the expressed purpose of throwing all of the Arabs off of the land. Even all the way back in the 1890’s, Zionist Jews were saying that in order to make their Jewish state in Palestine, they would have to throw out all the Arabs.

There was obviously no way to make a Jewish state in a land full of Arabs. How in the Hell are you going to do that? So Zionism was a settler-colonial project from Day One.

However, it only officially started in 1917 with the Balfour Declaration. Furthermore, the Jews who came to Palestine up until 1946 didn’t steal an inch of land. This is where the Arabs are lying saying “the Jews stole our land!”

After 1947, sure they did. In 1967, even more. In 1973, more. With the West Bank settlements in the 1980’s, even more. All of the land taken in the 1948 war was absolutely stolen from Arabs.

However, in 1946, Jews owned

If someone comes to your country and buys some land, he didn’t “steal” it. He bought it. He’s not a colonist. He’s an immigrant.

A radical antizionist nut (also a raving antisemitic kookjob) runs the Telegram site Global Resistance News. He also runs an radical antizionist and wildly antisemitic site called something like Moqawama (Resistance). From what I gather, he’s an Iraqi Shia Arab immigrant to the US who speaks perfect English and has even mastered hip (especially hip hop inner city) culture slang.

This guy is flat out wrong in going all the way back to the 1500’s and calling every Jew who immigrated to Palestine from 1500-1890 a “colonist.” Immigrants aren’t colonists! These Jews simply moved to Palestine for all sorts of reasons.

There had been a small Yishuv there since Antiquity, and periodically, European Jews would move to Palestine to join the Yishuv. Some were of course motivated to immigrate to their ancient homeland, but that’s not colonization! If an Italian-American or Swedish-American wants to immigrate to Italy or Sweden (his ancient homeland), is he a “colonist?” For God’s sake no.

Everybody who moves to the US is a “colonist?” Every non-Arab who moves to an Arab land is a “colonist?” Any foreigner who moves to any foreign country is “colonizing” the place? Get real!

Recently some Jews have moved to Bahrain to join the small community already there. They were welcomed with open arms by the monarchy. This GRN loon described these Jews as “colonists.” I guess every time a Jew moves anywhere in the Arab World, he’s a “colonist,” eh? They’re immigrants, you idiot! They didn’t move there to set up some settler-colonial Jewish state.

Jews can’t catch a break with this guy. He even hates anti-Zionist Jews due to their Jewish religion, which he utterly despises. Granted there are serious issues with this religion in its Orthodox form as there is with most fundamentalist religions. He hates Code Pink and leftwing anti-Zionist Jews. I’m trying hard to think of a Jew this guy might find acceptable or get some slack from, but I can’t think of one. He probably hates antifascist Honest Guy.

As you might expect from a raving antisemitic kook, he’s a Holocaust Denier (natch). I believe he even lauds Hitler and the Japanese fascists in WW2 (!). He quotes a prominent Romanian fascist from the 1930’s who was very active in the murderously antisemitic Iron Cross on the Jews. I hate to call Arab antisemites Nazis because it’s not appropriate in most cases, but in some cases, the shoe fits.

About Those Massacres in the 1948 War in Palestine

Both sides were massacring each other, as you can see, so Palestinians screaming about Israeli massacres are being disingenuous.

Arabs killed 346 Jewish civilians and POW’s.

Jews killed 1,732 Arabs.

Jews killed 15,000 Arabs in the course of the war, fighters and civilians.

Before the war, both sides were already massacring and murdering each other. This had been going on since ~1921.

Polling US, Israeli, Liberal, and Young Jews

Polling US and Israeli Jews

~5

However, the latest poll I saw showed that 8

US Liberal Jews

I haven’t seen many polls on US liberal Jews. Liberal Jews in the US and even in Israel have one thing in common. Almost to a one, they evince strong sympathy for the Palestinians, who they feel are being treated terribly. But I believe a recent poll showed that 7

Young US Jews

Some shocking polls found that 25-3

About the “Zionist” Slur

I really do get tired of antisemites using the word Zionist instead of Jew. Gets old real fast. Furthermore, Zionism is an extremely popular politics with both Jews and Gentiles.

Keep in mind that being a Zionist just means you support a Jewish state in Palestine. It’s a fairly reasonable position on its face. Sure, the Arabs hate Zionism, but they’re pretty alone on that score as most people in the rest of the world are probably Zionists by that definition. The two state solution that most of the world is converging on is a Zionist solution, so all two-staters are Zionists de facto. That includes Russia, China, and many Arab countries like Bahrain, UAE, and especially Saudi Arabia.

The Overwhelming Majority of Americans and British, Including Gentiles, are Zionists

For instance, in an up or down vote 9

Among the US public, the figure is less. 8

I oppose a Jewish state in Palestine. It’s been a complete disaster, bar none. Nevertheless, I will settle for a two-state solution if it comes down to that. I still think that makes me anti-Zionist.

Among the British public, 9

I don’t have figures for any other places. However, with 85-9

Time for Post-Zionism

One thing that all decent humans should be is post-Zionist. The Zionist project, whatever we thought about it, has to come to an end. No more Judaization of neighborhoods in Israel. No more settlements in East Jerusalem, the West Bank or now Gaza. No more stealing homes from Arabs and giving them to Jews.

No more stealing Arabs’ lands and driving them off their lands so settlers can take over. No more demolishing Arab homes, roads, water wells, olive orchards, and businesses for not having permits or whatever other fake reasons they can come up with. No more demolishing Arab homes and add-ons in East Jerusalem and Israel proper. The whole colonization project has to come to an end. As it is, Zionism is an ongoing colonization project. It’s never stopped since 1948 and now it’s even accelerating.

Banned for Hate Speech Again LOL

Just got another 24 hour ban on Youtube for hate speech. People were talking about beheaded babies, babies cooked in ovens, raped babies, murdered babies, raped women and children, Jews having their eyes gouged out in front of their families, on and on. Well, the Jews* made up all that crap. It’s all lies. There’s nothing to any of it.

So I started answering comments saying, “That didn’t happen. Those are just lies the Jews made up.”

I answered that a few times, and then I got a Hate Speech ban. Honest Guy likes hate speech laws, but I don’t know. I keep getting busted on this bullshit, so these laws don’t seem real cool to me. And I’m not much of a racist or an antisemite. Not only that, but I edit my comments very carefully to avoid hate speech bans. But I get them all the time anyway.

Apparently on Jewtube (or Youtube, except the parent corporation is majority owned by the two founders of Google), you can’t say the word “Jew” or “Jews” and then say anything at all after all. “The Jews made that up,” meaning of course, that Israel made up those lies, is hardly hate speech. How on Earth is that hate speech. They did make up all those lies. They’re even admitting it now on their TV.

I usually don’t like to use words like Jewtube because it sounds so antisemitic, but I’m wondering to what extent the ownership or Youtube plays a role in their insane censorship. Does that play any role or doesn’t it? Who knows? I know Youtube and Facebook are both much worse than Twitter when it comes to this stuff. It’s so hard to say what role Jewish ownership of the corporation actually plays here.

*I use Jews here to refer to Israel.

I’m not trying to marry all Diaspora Jews to Israel. Obviously all of the crimes done by Israel, including making up these awful lies, were done by Israel and Israel alone. The Diaspora Jews didn’t make up any of this crap. They helped spread it around, sure, but right now, it’s mostly pro-Israel Gentiles parroting this bullshit. Sure Israel is absolutely committing a genocide in Gaza. That’s obvious. But Diaspora Jews are not involved in this genocide. They haven’t killed a soul. Hell, they haven’t even hurt one Palestinian that I’m aware of.

Sure the US Jews control the US government on Mideast foreign policy via their Lobby and money, but at the moment, this policy appears to have US support or at least a 50-50 split**. 6

**Recent polling showed 6

Nevertheless, instead of listening to the people, Biden listened to the Jewish Lobby who signs his paycheck. It is on questions like these that we see the power of the Lobby and the fact that the Lobby, not the American public, controls the state on certain questions.

Election Disaster Coming Up: America as a Fascist Country

Trump will not end US democracy, but he will start us down the road:

Trump Won’t Be a Dictator, But He Will Set America on a Multi-Election Path to Tyranny

Commenter 1: Somehow we need to educate the majority of this country as to the permanent dangers of Republican fascism. This party ABSOLUTELY needs to be destroyed. For the survival of our very nation and way of life.

Commenter 2: They are not going to give up on their extreme goals. It is in their Republican DNA. No more repeating the cliche that “this is the most important election of our lives.” That will be true forever. We have to drill into people’s heads why the election is so important so that they understand the consequences.

Commenter 3: Brilliant diary!! This is EXACTLY what I have been saying! ANY of the fascists running would gladly implement Project 2025! And when Trump loses, it will become Project 2029! The traitors who wrote this shit need to be exposed!! I would prefer public political hearings on this! And we need to ensure that NO Republican EVER occupies the White House ever again!

Commenter 4: Agree wholeheartedly, and the army of true-believers elevates his threat. I go another step deeper. I believe that the individual threat of Trump pales in comparison to the threat of the mass of Trump voter (the vast majority of Republican voters). With his example, who else wouldn’t they voter for? And this crowd of nuts and bigots thrives in our system of minority party rule and hostage taking.

So this will take decades to combat, even in a best case scenario. We have seen the enemy and it is the Republican voter.

Commenter : Nothing but a MASSIVE repudiation of the Republican Party at the polls this November will suffice. We need to keep these people out of power until they finally give up on their extremist goals. This really is a fight for our lives.

I especially agree with the last comment. I’m not saying quit voting Republican forever. But we need to quit voting Republican as long as this fascist agenda is in control. If they lose enough elections, maybe they will back off, but I’m quite dubious. Anyway, no one should vote for this party ever again until they drop the fascist agenda.

So this will take decades to combat, even in a best case scenario. We have seen the enemy and it is the Republican voter.

I also agree with this comment. We are probably going to have to fight Republican fascism for decades, which is very sad right there. That’s because the fascists are not about to renounce fascism. If anything, as time goes on, more and more Republicans will hop on board the fascist train.

Excellent article on Daily Kos. Hey, sometimes they’re right. All of these out of breath pronouncements about this election being the end of US democracy are overwrought, not that there isn’t something there. Trump poses a very serious risk to democracy, but one Trump term won’t be enough to dismantle it. As the article notes, the turn to fascism in democratic countries tends to be a multi-year project. The author uses fascist Turkey as an example. Of course Erdogan is a fascist dictator, but Turkey’s been a fascist country since Ataturk. 8

Look, I really hate to use the word fascism. It’s abused by the idiot Left and the antifascist Left. They grotesquely exaggerates what fascism and Nazism is and how many people subscribe to it. They paint far too broad a brush. Nevertheless, fascism is a very real thing, and if we refer to fascism as any sort of rightwing authoritarian regime or dictatorship (my definition), it is an absolute fact that the Republican Party is a fascist political party. Sure there are the Liz Cheney’s, the antifascists. She’s been run out.

The whole party is on board with Trump from what I can tell. DeSatanist ran as Trumpism without Trump. Haley will inherit a fascist Republican Party and be controlled by it, so to me, she’s a fascist too, plus she plays the part very well. All of the other Republican contenders except maybe the fat boy from New Jersey were also fascists.

I’ve been watching Republicans my whole life and I’ve hated them since I was 18 or probably even sooner. I’ve never voted for a Republican in my life and I never will unless they’re more liberal than the Democrat. I’ve been a man of the Left my entire adult life and I’m not getting my conservative with age like most folks. Well, not to the point where I will vote fascist, I mean Republican. I’ve always noted a fascist tendency in Republicans and in Americans in general. I’ve known mostly Whites in my life and the fascist tendencies of US Whites have been obvious to me since the late 1970’s.

I grew up in hardline Republican White suburbs and it was clear to me as far back as high school that these people had fascist tendencies. Sadly, just about every White person I grew up with was a Republican. Even the Democrats were pretty damned conservative. The party has always worried me. I never considered the Republican Party to be an actual fascist political party until the onset of Trump. They were definitely getting there since the Contract on America in 1996, but like I said, I hate being promiscuous with the use of that term.

Trump is absolutely a far rightwing authoritarian, the most rightwing president we’ve ever had. All Republican politicians who support Trump are fascists. If you support fascists, you’re a fascist. If you vote fascist, you’re a fascist. There’s nothing else to add. The Never-Trumpers are generally speaking not fascists as that seems to be their major beef with him.

But they’re a tiny group as 8

The ones who left the Republican Party have almost all become independents. Polls show that a majority of Americans, by ~3 points right now, support Trump against Biden. Therefore, Americans are a fascist people, even if only by small margins. But in a winner take all system, small margins take it all home.

The press has been utterly against Biden since the start of his Administration. The press is simply capitalist, and it is always rightwing as all capitalist media is everywhere and and at all times. The media and the capitalists don’t care. They don’t care if America goes fascist.

The media only cares about money and the capitalist class. If capitalism allows them to continue to get rich, the media will all line up behind fascism like they are doing now. If the media were truly against fascism, they wouldn’t be beating up Biden like they are. The media portrayal of Biden bears no relationship to reality.

The capitalists care absolutely nothing about fascism and every time fascism comes to a country, 10

The coming election looks catastrophic. As I said Trump is up by 3 points, though some recent polls show him up to 1 point and a couple have Biden ahead by a point. Generally the polls show Trump up by 1-5 points, with a good 3 point average. Sure, Biden’s an awful candidate, but I’d rather have Biden than Trump. Speaking of dementia, Trump is starting to show some serious signs of dementia himself.

Biden’s advisors say he is very much on the ball, extremely intelligent and with it, and shows no signs of cognitive decline in terms of doing his job. However, we’ve all seen the videos where he looks completely lost (a sure sign of dementia), or where he tries to shake hands with people who are not there (another sure sign of dementia). So Biden does have some dementia, but it doesn’t appear to be effecting his actual ability to lead the country.

Much worse is when Kennedy and Cornel West run too. In those cases, Trump wins by 5-8 points. Obviously both Kennedy and/or West are drawing support exclusively from Biden and only benefit Trump. Both men need to drop out of the race at some point and simply endorse Biden. The very fate of our country lies in their impetuous and unthinking hands. It’s Biden or fascism. Which way will you choose, Western man.

The Republican Senate is also completely fascist at this point, though Romney may be an outlier. Polls show the Republicans favored by 5

The House is another disaster zone. The Republican House is even more fascist than the Republican Senate. Democrats keep saying that they’re going to take the House, but that’s a fantasy. Republicans are currently favored by 52.

Current polls have Trump winning the electoral vote 283-255. That’s not a bad prediction, however, I disagree with putting Michigan and Nevada in the Republican column.

Michigan has 16 electoral votes. If Michigan goes Biden, the vote will be 271-267 for Biden.

If Biden wins Nevada’s six electoral votes, that will be 277-261.

But Michigan is looking very scary with so many Arabs refusing to vote Biden over his support for the Jewish-led genocide in Gaza.

What bothers me about Kos and all the other sites of the Democratic base is that there is no idea of how to turn this election around and make it a Democratic victory. My question is what exactly does Biden and the Democratic Congress have to do to turn this around? Why are so many people supporting Trump and Republican fascism? What if anything can be done about this? Do we need to change anything? Are we doing anything wrong? Total silence on both questions.

Maybe ease up on the woke crap? Of course not.

Support for Israel isn’t a loser, and Trump will be far worse.

Fascist, Nazi, and White Supremacist Dogwhistles

Signs of Nazism!

Cultural Marxism: I don’t use that phrase. I use “Cultural Left” and these same idiots accuse me of being a Nazi because I really mean Cultural Marxism. But I’m not implying anything Jewish about the Cultural Left. Check?

Anti-Griffon: Scraping the bottom of the barrel here.

Noticing: LOL. Autistics are great at pattern recognition? Then why are their social skills such crap? I engage in Noticing, yes. Check!

109/110: Ok that’s funny. Coming up on number 110 are we? Well, we need to add another one. Jews are gone from Libya (pretty much driven out), and they’ve now been thrown out of Yemen. They’ve been gone from Afghanistan for a while, but they weren’t thrown out. They may be gone from Syria and Iraq, but they haven’t been thrown out. If anything the governments have been trying to keep them there, and there are still some in Kurdistan, which is a part of Iraq.

Hardly anyone is throwing Jews out of anywhere anymore, much to the Jews’ dismay because this sort of thing is their lifeblood for their victimhood complex. I won’t use it though.

13/52: Ok that’s funny. It means that Blacks are 1

14 words: That’s just terrible. Out and out Nazism. No way am I using that meme.

Anti-White: Sure, I refer to things being anti-White all the time. After all, it’s all the rage these days. I guess I must be a Nazi or a White Supremacist then. Check!

Anti-antifa: Yeah, I hate antifa. I guess I must be a fascist then. Check!

Anti-SHARP: Never even heard of this.

Blut un Ehre: Yuck. That’s some real Nazism for ya.

Blue Eyed Devils: Never heard of them.

Active Club: Never heard of it.

White Lives Matter: I get why people say it, but I won’t.

Crazy White Boy: Never heard of it.

Folkish: Really really heard of it.

More sings of Nazism!

Echoes ((( )))): Oh God, I love me some echoes! Too bad I get banned from every Leftist blog I put them on. But I use them to mean “pro-Israel” and put them around a lot of Gentiles, not that it matters for the Lefties. Anyway, they’re just funny. I’ll use them for Jews too if the shoe foots. Not cool Jewish people but the ones who are…I dunno…too Jewish? Check!

H8: Yuck. That sounds horrible.

Race over nation: Terrible idea always and you won’t catch me dead saying it.

It’s ok to be White: I get why people say it but I won’t.

Muh Holocaust: I won’t say this but it’s clear that Jews have weaponized their tragedy. But we knew they would.

Okay hand gesture: No idea what this is about.

Rock against Communism: Of course they’re fascists. Of course I hate them.

Seig Heil: Yuck.

The goyim know / shut it down / goyim: Well, Jews do use the term. I don’t say these things though for some reason.

ZOG (Zionist Occupied Government): Generally don’t like it but there is an Arab anti-Zionist (and anti-Semitic) blogger on Telegram who is using this a lot to mean any country that is strongly pro-Israel. In that sense, it makes complete sense. In the sense that the government is controlled by Jews though, not so much, but sometimes that makes sense too.

Zyklon B: Truly horrible Holocaust reference. Nope.

(Blank)Waffen: Well that is Nazi. Let’s ask US liberals. They’re the ones who have a hardon that won’t go down about the Ukrainian Nazis.

I Do Not Appreciate You: I feel like saying that about lots of people. But otherwise, I have no idea what this means.

White Boy Summer: Never heard of it.

Gnome hunter: Never heard of it.

Embrace nationalism: Well I don’t agree that all nationalist sentiments are fascist, I get where the idea is coming from. I’m very suspicious of nationalism as a result. On the other hand, anti-nationalism or internationalism is catastrophic.

Four checks and one possible check out of 31 (4/31 or 5/31): I check 10-1

The Completely Fake “Out of Control Border Crisis”

I admit that there are many things that I still do not understand about this issue. See this site here? That’s Biden’s base. Go to Daily Kos. They never met an illegal or an asylum seeker they didn’t love and want to let them stroll right in. Biden’s base in the pro-immigrant, pro-illegal, pro-asylum seeker, pro-refugee crowd. It limits what he can do, but he’s done quite a bit on this issue. Biden has issued 535 immigration-related executive orders. That’s more than the 472 Trump issued. I’m still very confused about this issue and if anyone could answer some questions for me, I would appreciate it.

All this crap you are seeing about an out of control US border is BS.

The Biden Administration is not “letting illegal immigrants come into the US.” They caught and expelled 2.4 million of them just last year. How’s that letting them go? Yes, 300,000 got through but that’s about normal for any given year.

The whole problem is with asylum seekers. 2.4 million people have been allowed into the US as asylum seekers under Biden. Granted, it’s a problem, but what are you doing to do about it. Also asylum seekers are not “illegals.” Republicans are lying!

Many would-be illegals are now claiming to be seeking asylum. I have seen reports that up to 9

Now granted Biden could put back in the wait in Mexico program of Trump. This was a new program as asylum seekers always got to wait in the US before. Now they had to wait in Mexico. But he won’t do that for political reasons.

Biden has not “lost control of the border.” It’s bullshit. We are instead simply being flooded with asylum seekers whom the law requires us to evaluate. We don’t know what to do about this very new problem. We are in new territory here. “There are millions of illegals crossing our borders!” The Republicans lie about this like they lie about everything. In order for an illegal to get caught, they have to cross the border. “2.4 million illegals crossed the US border last year!” So the Republicans scream. Yeah, but they all got caught. See how they are playing games with words?

Furthermore, last time I checked, the Republicans also refuse to fund the immigration courts where asylum claims are adjudicated. Hence there is a years-long backlog of 1.8 million cases and a lot of them never show up in court. The Republicans want the system to not work so they can blame the Democrats for a failed system.

They’ve done this same sleazy thing with so many other government programs. Defund it and then claim it doesn’t work. There’s nothing worse on Earth that a US Republican. As bad as an Israeli Zionist or a Ukrainian Nazi, lower than pond scum.

Commenter: IF a person claims asylum it must be done at the 1st safe country so your entire argument is shit.

That rule is optional. Countries don’t have to follow it. Some countries do and some don’t. The US has chosen not to follow that rule so asylees do not have to stop at the first safe country before they come to the US. If they did we could turn most of them away.

Commenter: If the system is so game-able by simply claiming asylum, then everyone will just claim asylum. Which is what they are doing.

But they’re not, We caught 2.4 million illegals at the border and sent em packing. The Republican lie and say “2.4 million illegals came into the country last year” implying that that’s how many made it past the Border Patrol. It’s a lie and they know it, but it looks like everyone is falling for it. 300,000 more made it past. So there’s 2.7 million who weren’t claiming asylum. We also let in 800,000 asylum seekers last year, but I don’t know what to do about that.

There’s a flood of people trying to come across the border for whatever reason and we are being swamped by the problem. We don’t have the resources to deal with it. That’s the crux of the matter right there. Without a lot more funding, this state of affairs will continue.

Of course the asylum thing is a scam for the most part. Many people who would have been illegals in the past are now claiming asylum. A lot of other people who would never have tried in the past due to being too far away are now claiming asylum because they think the doors are open.

The refugee asylum thing was not abused in the past. This is a recent scam on the part of would-be immigrants to the US that started under Trump. Of course it’s basically a scam, but these people will do anything to get in.

This is a brand new problem we never dealt with before. The Democrats are total idiots and are claiming that these people need asylum because they are fleeing “poverty and crime (violent crime).” Well those things are sad but poverty and crime, even violent crime, are not reasons to be allowed refugee asylum to the United States, and they never have been. If they were, we’d have 2 billion people on our borders in no time.

You have to have a valid fear for your personal safety due to threats. Maybe if your country is gang-infested and you are getting real and credible threats or attempts on your life from violent street gangs, you get in.

If you are a member of some persecuted ethnic or sexual minority or opposition political group who is seriously threatened with imprisonment on an unfair basis, you get in. Gays facing a real threat of persecution get in. So do persecuted minorities and political activists who are selected for persecution.

You have to document all this stuff and it’s not easy.

This is a brand new area of law, and it has nothing to do with “illegals.” We’re doing great when it comes to catching illegals at the border. There is no illegal immigrant crisis.

Another scam they tried was sending their minor kids to cross the border. As we were not allowed to turn away unaccompanied minors at the border for humanitarian reasons, illegal alien scammers started sending their minor kids across because they were assured of getting in. Trump started locking up these minors, and all Hell broke loose. Once again we are dealing with a whole new area here because no one had ever tried the unaccompanied minor scam before. We are treading in new waters and don’t know what to do.

Biden is screwed. He ought to be tougher on asylum seekers. Wait in Mexico would be great. Funding the courts would be great. But a lot of his base are Hispanics who love illegals. Many of the rest are liberals who never met an illegal alien they didn’t love.

If he cracks down, no matter how hard, the people furious about this issue will never vote for him anyway, so there’s no upside to cracking down.

And he risks a lot of his base staying home if he cracks down.

He can’t win.

Also if he cracks down in Texas, he looks like a dictator. If he backs down, he looks weak, so he can’t win there either.

Biden’s just a mushy Centrist. He’s not even a liberal. Most Lefties despise him.

I think it’s mostly the Republicans who want the system to fail. They obviously love illegal alien labor, and once they get into the US, Republicans usually don’t bother to deport them. Neither party ever raids businesses who hire illegals. Trump almost never did this although he bitched and moaned about illegals the whole time.

E-Verify was a great idea but liberal idiots shot it down. I hate DeSatanist but at least he put in E-Verify. I think the Democrats just love illegals because that’s what their base, heavily Hispanic, demands. Some of them love to go on about “jobs Americans won’t do” but that’s bullshit. There are no jobs Americans won’t do. Where I live, a lot of Americans and legal immigrants do farm work!

Both parties totally suck on this issue, and neither party wants to solve the illegal alien problem. The Republicans want to pretend they are doing something about it to get people to vote Republican, but then they never do anything about it because it will hurt their business base that relies in illegal alien labor.

The Democrats don’t want to solve the problem either because their base will massacre them if they try.

Also, contra this article, illegals can’t and don’t vote.

The reason they come here is simple economics. They’re coming from poor countries for the money. Pretty much. Some are fleeing violence but even those could stop in Mexico where the violence rate is much lower. Or they could go to Costa Rica or Panama. They won’t because they’re coming for the money.

Republicans keep saying that the asylum seekers are all criminals because a lot don’t have valid claims. But they’re not violating any laws, so they’re not criminals. 9

How Large Are the Palestinian Armed Groups? 98,000 Fighters

Hamas (Izz ad-Din Al-Qassam Brigades) is said to have 30,000 fighters, but my resistance sources told me it is 50,000+. Also has forces of unknown size in Lebanon. Small presence in the West Bank. Close to Iran.

I have also heard people say that “250,000 people are in Hamas,” or “Hamas has 250,000 members.” I don’t know what this means.

I know Hamas has a large militia. These people take up arms and fight sometimes and then at other times they drop their guns and take up jobs in the civilian sector. Then later they may go back and take up arms again. I’m dubious that they are included in the official fighters but maybe they are. If they are not, then Hamas is a lot bigger than we think.

The Mujahedin Movement is said to have hundreds of fighters, but my resistance sources told me it is in the tens of thousands! So 20,000+. Small presence in the West Bank. Fatah split.

Islamic Jihad (Al-Quds Brigades) figures vary from 11-13,000. I go with 13,000. Also has branches in Lebanon and Syria with separate names. Large presence in the West Bank. Close to Iran.

Popular Resistance Committees (Al-Nasser Salah al-Din Brigades): 5,000. Fatah split. Gaza only. Close to Iran. Secular, leftwing.

Fatah al-Intifada: 3,500. Old radical Fatah split, newly active. Small presence in the West Bank.

Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades is said to have ~300 fighters, but I think it is 2,000. Fatah rejectionist split. Strong presence in the West Bank, where it is most powerful. Secular.

PFLP (Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades) is said to have hundreds of fighters, but I would say thousands. So 2,000+. Also has a presence in the West Bank. Close to Iran. Very secular, leftwing.

DFLP (National Resistance Brigades) is said to have hundreds of fighters, but I say 1,000. Very secular, leftwing, has a women’s division.

A new Fatah split in Gaza named after a hero of the Arab revolt (don’t have a name at the moment): 800. Gaza only. Secular.

PFLP-GC (Jihad Jibril Brigades): 800, but many are in Lebanon and Syria. Small presence in Gaza. Very secular, leftwing.

Salafi-jihadist groups in Gaza: Very small and not very active.

All of the above groups have some presence in Gaza. But that right there gives us 98,000 fighters, albeit not all in Gaza.

What Does “Budding” Mean as Far as a Teenage Girl Goes?

Polar Bear: Developed breasts and ass.

Well, sure. That’s what any normal, healthy man is attracted to. The less developed she is, the less attractive she is to a normal, healthy man. Sure there are men who prefer less developed females but I don’t think that’s completely unhealthy. I wouldn’t say it’s disordered, but it doesn’t seem to be the norm for human males. Men want a female who looks like a woman, not a girl for Chrissake!

Fully developed breasts and ass probably occurs around age 16. I don’t think they change that much after age 16. The breasts change as far as the nipples go, but you can’t see that. They don’t grow much. I don’t think they become much more developed breasts and ass-wise after age 16, but I’m open to criticism. Around 18-19, the hips widen, but for most men, this isn’t really an improvement. It’s not a downgrade either; it’s just not an improvement.

However, she now has a natural, normal body, since most teenage girls do not have natural, normal bodies, as they are underdeveloped and not fully adaptive in terms of carrying a pregnancy to term. Before the hips widen, the body is not fully adapted to pregnancy, and there can be issues with carrying a child to term because the hips are too narrow to properly carry a baby.

There does seem to be an emotional maturation process after age 16 though, especially from 17-17 1/2 or 18. A lot of 16 year old girls sort of look like little girls and they definitely have a silly, girlish immaturity about them. Some might find it cute, but to me, it’s a turnoff.

By 17 1/2-18 most females are pretty much full-fledged adults. The contrast between high school seniors and those under them is quite remarkable in terms of maturity. I go to a coffeeshop where there are high school kids hanging out all the time, so I get to see them in their natural habitat.

And by age 17, especially age 17 1/2 (and up of course), I’m more than interested. She doesn’t seem too young, silly, or immature at all. In fact she reminds me of a lot of girls and women I used to date around that age as a young man.

Israeli Death Tolls for the October 7, 2023 Palestinian Attack on Israel (Fifth Update)

Another major revision in this ongoing tally. This tally is still extremely premature and so many things are unknown about it, mostly because the Israeli government has lied so much and no one in Israel has done a proper investigation of these deaths to determine who killed who, assuming that can even be done in the first place. A good tally of these figures may never be available due to war propaganda and a very poor investigation of this incident. This is the best I can come up with so far, but as usual, it is up for possible major revision in the future

A Rundown on Teenage Girls, Mostly for Informational, Not Actional Purposes

Polar Bear: Whenever they start budding, which’s earlier these days. I was hardcore not into spinners in my youth. “Get your bony ass off me,” if one sat on my lap.

I believe Robert wants some budding, it’s natural. I work with a budder and she gets attention from every guy. That’s the obvious ideal, a young budder. There’s more excitement for that than anything.

All girls under 18 are illegal in my state, and I won’t touch them. I recently had a 16 year old girl begging me to have sex with her and trying every trick in the book to get me to cave in and do it, but I turned her down. So I’m just talking here about what I’m attracted to. It has nothing to do with who I would have sex with because they’re all illegal here, unless we are talking about someone in another state which I could possibly visit.

The bottom line is the more it looks and acts like a woman, the more interested I am. I’m also turned off by immature behavior. When I was young, I used to dump JB’s for this. I just couldn’t handle their immaturity. It drove me crazy and made me very anxious to be around them because a part of me really didn’t want to be there. I’d be stuck with this 16 year old girl, horny as Hell, crawling all over me, and my body would be rebelling and telling me, “Get me the Hell out of here!”

The result would be an anxiety feeling of dueling impulses and feelings. You’re being pulled in two directions at all, there’s a war in your head, and it doesn’t feel good at all. Plus you can also be impotent in a situation like that. The impotence is your body saying, “Get me the Hell away from this woman who is repelling me in some way.”

By repelling I mean there is a part of your body saying that this chick doesn’t turn you on at all, and your body wants to move away from her. You’re trying to stick around to get laid, but it doesn’t necessarily work, and you often end up with this weird, anxious, “get me out of here” behavior.

You’re trying to fight it off, but dueling impulses like that don’t really mesh, and the resulting feeling is quite uncomfortable, like trying to wear a suit that doesn’t fit, and you keep trying to shrug it off your shoulders, but you keep wearing it anyway.

“Get your bony ass off me,” if one sat on my lap.

They’re sticks. It’s a turn-off. They have the flat body of a boy at 13-14 for sure and even a bit at 15 still. We men like curves!

15 year old girls’ bodies sometimes just look funky like they are misshapen. They also often appear psychologically awkward too. The legs or arms seem too long for the rest of the body, and it looks odd. My Mom said the body doesn’t grow at the same rate, and some parts grow faster than others, so in a 15 year old girl, you might see body parts maturing at different rates, which gives the result of a strange body that’s put together wrong.

I like em around 16-17, to tell the truth. Of course, anything 18+ is awesome.

Too many 15 year old girls look and act like little girls. It’s a turnoff. Some of them are kind of cute though. A lot of 15 year old girls have small breasts. They’re not fully developed. And some still have those turnoff little girl faces*.

13 year old girls are ridiculous. That’s a little girl. Anyway, most of them won’t even talk to you, and if they do, I assure you they won’t have anything interesting to say. Typically they have absolutely zero sexual experience at all, nor do they seem interested in acquiring any. And those little girl faces* just wreck it for me.

I have no idea why older women seem convinced that we men are after these girls.

Sure, I wouldn’t mind have a few words with one some of the time, but I wouldn’t pursue any involved conversation. But older women are always swooping over them like hawks shooting dagger eyes at all of us men and herding these girls under their wings. It’s ridiculous how many idiot women think we men actually want to fuck these girls. Why don’t they lighten up and quit being so weird and paranoid?

Even 14 year old girls are underdeveloped and extremely immature. Turnoff. They also have those little girl faces, and I can’t stand that. It makes them seem like children and you’re turned off the same way most of us are to little girls.

Further, they don’t talk much and when they do, they seem very young, almost like talking to a little girl. It’s a bit cute but it’s also a huge turnoff. Anything that reminds me of a little girl is no-go. It feels pedo to me and that creeps me out and turns me off. 14 year old girls look like sticks and their tits are really small and lame. It looks and acts like a little girl. Not interested! Also, most of them won’t even talk to you, and they aren’t very interesting when they do.

I’m convinced that 13 and 14 year old girls are not nearly as horny as 16 and 17 year old girls, or maybe it’s just that the older ones are more confident about sex. Also, most 13 and 14 year old girls and even some 15 year old girls have very little sexual experience. Quite a few have never had sex, and you would be surprised how many have never been kissed. But nowadays you can meet 18 year old girls who have never been kissed. I dated one a while back.

13-15 year old girls are totally illegal anyway, so why even bother talking to them? What’s the point? On the other hand, 16 and 17 year olds can be interesting to talk to, and if she’s in another state, she may well be legal.

If a 15 year old girl looks and acts older, I like her. Some 16 year old girls are pretty immature, though others are not at all.

A lot of teenage girls, even say 17 or 18 year olds, hardly know how to flirt at all. They seem awkward and lame when they do it. It’s a bit cute but it’s also a turnoff in its lameness. They don’t seem to know what they’re doing.

Most 17 year old girls look fantastic. In particular, 17 1/2 year olds are very mature psychologically. 17-18 year old high school girls strike me as very mature compared to other high school girls. They’re basically adults. It’s a night and day difference between them and younger high school girls.

A female’s body is mostly fully developed by 16-17. There is an additional change that occurs at ages 18-19 in which the hips widen, but this doesn’t really make them more attractive.

However, there is something odd about a teenage girl’s breasts. They’re not quite developed like a woman’s breasts. They’re just as large, but there is a difference in the areola. I noticed it a long time ago but never made sense of it. What happens is that the areola gets raised in a younger teen but the nipple is not raised along with it, so the nipple is on the same elevation as the areola and is not raised above it.

You will probably see this most in a 15 or 16 year old girl. Later on, the nipple itself is raised and sticks out from the areola. I’m not sure when this occurs, but you can see it in some Tracy Lords movies, so the change may occur around 17, as she was 16 when she made her movies.

I wouldn’t say these underdeveloped tits look better. They don’t look bad but they look a bit weird if you are used to grown women. I think most of us men like a nipple that is raised above the areola. It looks hot.

*13-14 and even some 15 year old girls have “little girl faces.” This means that they still have baby fat on their faces. All little girls have baby fat on their faces, which is what makes them look like little girls. By age 15 or certainly 16, the baby fat has disappeared, and in its place, we start to see the more bony, sharply defined, often striking features of a grown woman. That’s much preferable to me.

Israeli Death Tolls for the October 7, 2023 Palestinian Attack on Israel (Fourth Update)

As you can see, I’m still working on this. One thing is for sure: the Palestinians killed a lot of people and committed a lot of horrific acts and horrendous war crimes during this attack. But Israel appears to have killed even more of their own civilians while fighting back. Some of this was simply confusion or crossfire but a certain amount of it was also the invocation of the Hannibal Doctrine. An awful lot of this is still very much up in the air. In particular, the Palestinian may have killed more and Israel may have killed fewer than my current figures.

We may never get to the bottom of this to where we can get a true estimate of  just who killed who.

Let’s go through the list:

Israelis Killed on 10-7

1,147 Israelis, soldiers and civilians, killed on 10-7.

Israeli Security Forces Killed on 10-7

340 Israeli soldiers killed on 10-17.

59 Israeli police killed on 10-7. Probably 30 of these were killed by the IDF at the Sderot police station by Hannibal Doctrine.

13 Israeli Shin Bet officers killed on 10-7.

12 Israeli first responders killed on 10-7.

Subtotal: 84 other Israeli security forces killed on 10-7.

Total: 424 Israeli security forces killed on 10-7.

Israeli Civilians Killed on 10-7

723 Israeli civilians killed on 10-7.

Israeli Civilians Killed by Israel

296 Israeli civilians killed by IDF at the festival (estimate based on photos of burned out cars) via Hannibal Doctrine, crossfire, and confusion.

154 Israeli civilians killed by IDF in kibbutzes by Hannibal Doctrine and crossfire, including:

97 killed in Be’eri. 90 by IDF.

39 killed in Kfar Aza. 52 killed, 3/4 killed by IDF (my estimate) for 39 killed by IDF.

21 killed in NetivHaAsara.

4 hostages in a vehicle as it was heading back to Gaza.

450 Israeli civilians killed by Israel.

Israeli Civilians Killed by Palestinians

68 Israeli civilians killed by Palestinians at the festival.

206 Israeli civilians killed by Palestinians in other places, including:

46 at Nir Oz.

16 at Kfar Aza.

16 at Alumim.

14 at Kissufim.

12 at Nahal Oz.

12 at Holit.

7 at Be’eri.

5 at Nirim.

3 at EinHashlosha.

274 Israeli civilians killed by Palestinians.

Conclusion

Civilians Killed in October 7 Attack

Israel 450

Palestinians 274

As you can see, Israel killed more civilians on October 7 as the Palestinians did.

Addendum

15 Israeli soldier POWs and civilian hostages killed in Gaza by Israel.

216 Israeli soldiers killed since 10/7.

Very Interesting Psychological Case I Am Working With

I have been doing counseling with a girl and now young woman overseas (she lives in Germany in case you are interested)* for free for a long time now (off and on for eight years). I took her on because she seemed an emergency case.

She had seen an article about Harm Obsessions in which completely harmless people worry that they will commit violent acts, kill people, or go on a killing spree. She said she had thoughts of killing people. However, when I asked her if she resisted the thoughts, she told me no. She said sometimes she just gritted her teeth. Ok, that rules out OCD right there because the differential diagnosis was Harm OCD. If you’re not trying to stop the thoughts, forget it. It’s not OCD. It’s something else.

At age 6, she tried to murder her little brother by smothering him with a pillow. Her mother came in the room, otherwise she would have done it. Interestingly, she told me that she felt no guilt about trying to kill him and instead she thought it was funny. This got me thinking.

At age 15, she lunged at a girlfriend and tried to strangle her but pulled herself off at the last minute.

She also told me that she felt like she was the only person in the world and that everyone else was an NPC in a video game. This is the way a psychopath thinks. The narcissist thinks he’s the greatest person in the world. He acknowledges that others exist, but he just thinks they’re inferior, and he doesn’t care much about them.

The psychopath thinks he’s the only person in the world. The other people are just some sort of nonhuman objects. Being the only person in the world, there’s also some narcissism associated with psychopathy but that’s not the prominent feature. Also psychopathy has an odd self-destructive aspect to it that narcissism lacks. The narcissist is simply too great of a person to destroy himself. Why destroy the greatest person on Earth?

When psychopathy mixes with Narcissistic Personality Disorder with the addition of paranoia and sadism, you get Malignant Narcissism. This was Ted Bundy’s diagnosis. Ever notice how narcissistic he was? Other serial killers have also had this diagnosis.

Interestingly Donald Trump is also a Malignant Narcissist. So Trump has the same personality disorder as Ted Bundy! He’s just more socialized and Bundy was a lot less controlled.

Anyway the overall picture for this girl seemed to be a classic psychopath. But we can’t diagnose that in minors. Instead we diagnose Conduct Disorder, but she didn’t meet criteria for that either.

The best you could say was that she might grow up to be a psychopath. The one thing that I didn’t notice is that she did have some guilt or bad feelings about the thoughts. After all, she was worried enough about them to come to me. And as I told her what was going on with her and that it didn’t look very good from her point of view, she kept saying, “Sigh.” This implied she was not happy with her condition. I blew this off at the time, but I think it’s important.

I didn’t speak to her for a very long time until she came back at age 23. She told me that the feelings were by and large gone and anyway she had a very different attitude about them. She had guilty feelings about all manner of things.

I had no idea what she was, but she sure wasn’t a psychopath. The notion about other people being NPC’s in a video game was gone. I asked her about trying to kill her brother and her friend and how she had not cared about either incident, and she told me she didn’t remember either incident. She’s probably repressed those memories, which is interesting right there.

What was odd was that she seemed like a classic psychopath as a teenager but then aged completely out of it as an adult. This is why we do not diagnose personality disorders in adolescence. The personality changes too much. This also shows that being a fairly normal teenager with delinquent behaviors, thoughts, or feelings can completely mirror psychopathy but then vanish with adulthood, as so much delinquency does.

However, she still had these feelings. She told me that recently she ran up to a kitten and tried to strangle it, although she stopped.

She also thanked me for my “intervention” as she called it. As I said I worked with her for free because I was worried she was dangerous. She told me that without my intervention, she might have committed a violent crime, perhaps even attempted or actual homicide.

I asked her how I did it, and she said that I didn’t condemn her for the thoughts and tell her she was evil or a bad person. I had simply accepted them as a rather unfortunate part of her psyche that didn’t seem to be going away soon. Rather than trying to make the thoughts go away, which I considered a dubious exercise, I had told her to simply be “pragmatic” in her behaviors.

I told her she could think whatever she wanted to, but she needed to be careful her actions. I also said she didn’t need to act on her thoughts. Thoughts are just that: thoughts. I said I didn’t care about her thoughts. She could think about whatever she wanted to for all I cared. All I cared about was what she did.

Being pragmatic meant controlling your behaviors so you don’t do anything real stupid. I told her to think about the consequences if she acted on the thoughts. Regardless of morality, which I didn’t care much about and told her so, I told that it would simply be very, very stupid to act on one of those thoughts. So the pragmatic or smart thing to do would be to not act on them.

However, she does continue to have persistent homicidal thoughts, feelings, and urges. She doesn’t have OCD as that’s the differential diagnosis. A year ago, she became deeply depressed and went to an excellent psychiatrist in Frankfurt. The psychiatrist diagnosed Major Depression and put her on an antidepressant. She finally told her about the homicidal thoughts, and the doctor put her on an antipsychotic.

Oddly enough, the antipsychotic is making the urges go away. I have no idea why the antipsychotic is doing that as she isn’t psychotic at all.

The doctor diagnosed the homicidal thoughts as aggression stemming from Depression, but I’m not really buying it.

For one thing, other than the Major Depression she had fallen into a year ago, she had never been depressed. She suffered no depression when she tried to kill her brother or friend or kitten or when she had these feelings in high school.

Also aggression stemming from Depression looks a lot different. You are often looking at a very angry person, angry in a global sense. Even if her anger was masking depression, she would have been a very angry and mean person all those years from age 6 all the way up to age 22.

She told me that she had never felt any sort of global anger or rage towards the world, and indeed, she never seemed that way to me. Our counseling was quite noneventful and she was quite nice, kind, and cooperative. Any person with significant anger issues would have blown up at me many times by now, and I probably would left them as a client. Angry people simply are in general not very nice.

At the very least, you can see and feel the rage and hatred in them. She told me that instead she had simply felt numb like she was repressing her feelings for most of her life and suggested that this was masked depression. First of all, that’s not falsifiable, and second of all, it’s circular reasoning.

How do we know she’s depressed? Because she’s numb.

How do we know she’s numb? Because she’s depressed.

The argument is chasing its tail around the living room.

Also, the homicidal thoughts should have gone away with the antidepressant, and they didn’t. Instead, the antidepressant lifted the depression but didn’t touch the homicidal ideation. On the contrary, she needed a completely different drug for that which implies that it was a separate process.

I remain convinced that we are dealing with two separate processes here: the homicidal ideation and the Major Depression.

The problem with her is that other than Depression, there is no way to give her any kind of a psychiatric diagnosis based on those thoughts alone. Merely having those symptoms is not enough to qualify for any psychiatric disorder. You would need a number of other symptoms, and she doesn’t have them.

Psychiatrically, she’s “normal” or within the normal range, or at least she doesn’t have any diagnosable psychiatric disorder.

Her problem, which she shares with many criminals who act on these impulses, is more of right and wrong, good and bad, good and evil.

She had all sorts of other concerns revolving around alienation, worry about over-attachment to a girlfriend (she’s bisexual and in a relationship with another woman), and all sorts of other “problems in living.”

The more I listed to this stuff, the more I told her that she did not have a psychiatric problem. Instead she had the typical problems many to most people wrestle with in their lives. Hence her problems were “existential,” as in the concerns of existentialism and other philosophical schools. They could also be seen as spiritual. I advised her to go talk to a Christian preacher because she’s at least nominally a Catholic as most are in her part of the world.

If you read as many novels and short stories as I do, you will see that many characters wrestle with all sorts of symptoms of this nature. Some even take their lives. Dostoevsky of course is classic, but the interior monologues of Joyce Carol Oates or even Anais Nin are also very good, not to mention Fernando Pessoa of course. I told her to go read some of those writers and see if she could relate.

I am starting to think that a lot of our problems are philosophical and/or spiritual instead of psychiatric. Psychiatry only goes so far. We aren’t out to tell you the meaning of life, though many therapists keep writing books claiming that they unlocked the vault. And everything having to do with right and wrong, good and bad, good and evil, etc. is completely outside of the range of psychiatry. This is the purview of philosophers (especially moral philosophy), religious or spiritual leaders, and unfortunately, of law, the police, the courts and gaols.

I’m also starting to think that a lot of people who have something that looks like a psychiatric disorder are not really diagnosable as they don’t fit into any of our neat little boxes. We have to either give them some silly NOS (Not Otherwise Specified) diagnosis, which is basically a cop out, or we have to throw up our hands and say they simply don’t meet criteria for any mental disorder. Not that they’re healthy. They may well not be. But we simply don’t have a shelf to shove them into.

*She has given me permission to write this up, but I may well have changed certain things to disguise her identification.

Epstein Was a Hebephile and Was Sexually Normal

Epstein wasn’t a pedophile. He liked teenage girls as all normal non-dead non-gay men do.

A lot of completely normal, healthy, moral, men with no sexual oddities will have sex with teenage girls, especially the older ones at 16 and 17. After all, it looks exactly like a woman. Once a girl gets secondary sex characteristics, all normal men will look at her and their caveman brain will say, “Breed it!” The only men who will not think like this are either gay or dead.

In a lot of ways, we haven’t advanced much from the Paleolithic, and we still have a lot of leftover heritage from that era. Consider this: In primitive tribes, the average age at first pregnancy was 16, and the father was typically an older man. For instance, among the Blackfoot, the typical marriage was between a 15 year old girl and a 35 year old man. These relationships have been going on since history was recorded, and no harm or damage to the girls was ever recorded.

Consider something else: in my area, a burial site for the local Indians from the mid-1700’s was discovered. They were all female and had all died between ages 27-33. So the average woman lived to be only 30 years old! In addition, all of their teeth were ground down to nothing. That is because the Indians ground acorns in holes in rocks and bits of stone always got in the acorn. I’ve eaten this acorn before. It’s rather tasteless, something like Hawaiian poi. The people I was eating it with didn’t like it, but I didn’t mind.

Looking at this local tribe, if all sex between adult males and 13-17 year old girls is inherently extremely harmful to the girls, how did this tribe survive for all this time? If this tribe waited until everyone was an adult before having kids, people would be dead before they were barely even parents.

Even in the case above, every child had a mother who died when they were 11-17 years old (average age 14). That sounds very traumatic but I suppose in a group like this, you just get used to such things. Can you imagine growing up in a society where you and all your friends lost their mothers when you were barely teenagers?

The fact that this attraction is so normal and utterly non-pathological is why it’s so easy to rope so many men in with these honeypots. If Epstein were setting them up with 12 year old girls, I imagine there would be few takers, and those folks wouldn’t be very normal sexually or morally.

Epstein was a hebephile, however, that’s for damn sure. This is how you can tell. Epstein denied being a pedophile. Most pedos will straight up admit it. I’ve worked with them in counseling before and that’s exactly what they all do. And he said,

Once the braces come off, I lose interest.

The thing is that that is precisely what a hebephile would say. A pedophile would never say such a thing.

Braces probably come off at age ~16, and preferential hebephiles do indeed have no interest in 16 year old girls. They call them grandmas LOL. I’ve been in their chatrooms out of curiosity and this is exactly how they act.

But that’s not disordered and it’s actually considered within the range of normal. Sexually speaking, Epstein was considered within the normal range according to the American Psychiatric Association*. The problem with Epstein was a moral problem of good and bad, right and wrong.** Those of us who work in mental health don’t deal with stuff like that. Leave it up to the legal system and the moral philosophers. All we care about is:

Are you crazy (disordered)?

Are you sane (nondisordered)?

Actually there is a movement afoot to take both pedophilia and Antisocial Personality Disorder (sociopathy, psychopathy) out of the DSM on the grounds that they aren’t mental disorders. Psychopaths aren’t nuts. Ever met one? They aren’t crazy at all. They’re simply evil!

*Actually I consider primary preferential hebephiles to be sexually disordered. But I’m glad they kept it out of the DSM because the pigs will just abuse it to lock schmucks who banged some teenage girl in a mental hospital for life.

Which is completely unconstitutional, by the way. There’s no crime called “dangerousness.” You can be as dangerous as you want, and if you break no laws in that sense, no one can do a damn thing to you. There are time bombs everywhere.

The “Free Press” of Most Countries during Wartime According to George Orwell

I’m not sure about everywhere but it’s certainly true here in the West. Oddly, we don’t see nearly as much of this in the Global South. The West owns the world’s media, so with a death grip on information, they can easily brainwash the world with fakes and lies. Also the proxies of the West – the Genocide Jews in Israel, Nazis in Ukraine, ISIS and Al Qaeda headchoppers in the Muslim World – are so utterly diabolical that it’s quite unnecessarily to make up lies about them.

Just telling the truth is generally horrible enough. Further, I haven’t noticed Pakistan, the Taliban, Armenia, Russia, Iran, the Palestinians, Hezbollah, the Houthis, or the Arab World in general doing this either. I don’t regard the faked Israeli death and wounded reports coming from the Palestinian resistance as part of this fakery. It’s common for each side to exaggerate their opponent’s losses in wartime.

At the moment the Genocide Jews in Israel and the Nazis in Ukraine seem to be the worst liars of all. That leads me to think that maybe they have something in common. What they have in common is fascism. If you understand fascism, you realize that fascism venerates the lie. In fact, the lie is promoted as the highest form of discourse in fascism, the very basis for the state and society and the behavior of each. Fascism is shameless and forthright about its lying. In fact, pathological lying seems to be at the very basis of the fascist construct.

I would not say every fascist or rightwing authoritarian group is like this, but the classic ones in the 1930’s surely were.

False flags and endless lying in wartime seems to be a favorite of the West at the moment. I would include Turkey, Azerbaijan, Ethiopia, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE in the West. There is a lot of dubious reportage coming out of this latest civil war in Ethiopia, but most of it seemed to be coming from the state as usual. Basically anyone on board with the West or in the West’s pockets is lying like a rug. The Global South probably doesn’t lie that much because no one is going to run their lies with the world media in the West’s death grip.

Early in life I have noticed that no event is ever correctly reported in a newspaper, but in Spain, for the first time, I saw newspaper reports which did not bear any relation to the facts, not even the relationship which is implied in an ordinary lie.

I saw great battles reported where there had been no fighting, and complete silence where hundreds of men had been killed. I saw troops who had fought bravely denounced as cowards and traitors, and others who had never seen a shot fired hailed as heroes of imaginary victories; and I saw newspapers in London retailing these lies and eager intellectuals building emotional superstructures over events that never happened.

I saw, in fact, history being written not in terms of what happened but of what ought to have happened according to various ‘party lines.'”

Israeli Death Tolls for the October 7, 2023 Palestinian Attack on Israel (Third Update)

The first post is here. Here is the second post. This is the third version of the death toll from that date. It indicates that slightly more than half of the Israeli civilians killed on that day were killed by the IDF, many due to the Hannibal Doctrine and others simply due to mass confusion by helicopter and drone pilots.

1,147 Israelis, soldiers and civilians, killed on 10-7.

Soldiers and Other Security Forces Killed on 10-7

340 Israeli soldiers killed on 10-17.

59 Israeli police killed on 10-7.

13 Israeli Shin Bet officers killed on 10-7.

12 Israeli first responders killed on 10-7.

Subtotal of 84 other Israeli security forces killed on 10-7.

Total of 424 Israeli security forces killed on 10-7

Israeli Civilians Killed on 10-7

723 Israeli civilians killed on 10-7.

Israeli Civilians Killed by Israel

159 Israeli civilians killed by IDF outside of the festival.*

248 Israeli civilians killed by IDF at the festival.**

407 Israeli civilians killed by Israel.

Israeli Civilians Killed by Palestinians

114 Israeli civilians killed by Palestinians at the festival.

201 Israeli civilians killed by Palestinians in other places, including 11 at Kfar Aza and 7 at Be’eri.

Total of 315 Israeli civilians killed by Palestinians.

Conclusion

Civilians Killed in October 7 Attack

315 or 4

407 or 5

Discussion

As you can see, Israel killed more civilians on October 7 than the Palestinians did.

Addendum

15+ Israeli soldier POWs and civilian hostages killed in Gaza by Israel.

183 Israeli soldiers killed since 10/7.

*88 in in Kibbutz Be’eri and in a vehicle (four in a vehicle) via Hannibal Doctrine. Also two more hostages killed via Hannibal Doctrine in a car heading back to Gaza .

97 killed in Be’eri. Preliminary investigation indicates that 9

63 killed in Kfar Aza with 52 killed by IDF and and 11 killed by Palestinians.. 5/6 killed by IDF. My estimate based on video below in which 5/6 buildings where deaths occurred were either shot up by heavy automatic weapons fire, rubbled via tank or artillery shells, or burned to the ground by tank shells. The buildings where Palestinians killed people showed few if any signs of internal damage.

The Syrian War Is Not Completely a Sunni-Shia Conflict

Commenter 1: Bashar al-Assad won the last presidential election in Syria. Anyone who went into Syria to check found Assad hugely popular. Of course the vicious, murderous foreign enemies call every election outcome they don’t like a “sham”, but who cares?

The only democracy in the Middle East? Syria!

Commenter 2: If you went only to DC and deep Blue areas, I am sure you would find that Biden is popular as well.

So it is when you go to Damascus and to the old Ugaritic coast (majority Alawite) north of Lebanon, you find huge support for Assad.

You might hear something different if you try, oh, Aleppo, Hama, or Idlib. But if you went on a normal Syrian visa, you didn’t try those cities, did you?

This is not correct. The army is 7

Hama’s all right these days. The city of Aleppo and much of the province is all right.

You don’t understand. This is not about Sunni versus Alawite. The rebels are hardline Islamists who want to kill  the Alawites and throw out the Christians. Remember those vast crowds in Sunni cities in Hama, Aleppo, and Idlib chanting,

Christians to Lebanon, Alawites to the grave!

These chants were heard very early on in the uprising, only a month or two afterwards. The revolution quickly turned so bigoted, murderous, and Islamist that it alienated many of the more moderate supporters. There was even a Free Syrian Army Christian brigade at one point. Most of these moderates had gone back over to the government within the first year.

In the years since then, leaders of the rebels have reiterated that the chant above remains their project. They’ve stated as much on many occasions. These are your heroes in Idlib. You proud of yourself yet?

The highest support for the rebels was 1/3 of the population supporting even the hardline Sunnis like ISIS and Al Qaeda! That’s how bad it got at one point. However, it’s gone down a lot since then, The armed rebels probably have 1

Commenter 3 responding to me: Totally agree. The Assad family had a mandate from the various factions like Tito had for Yugoslavia. There were many factions and religions, and the Assads kept the balance of power so that none had hegemony of the other. They were in effect referees among several competing teams. This is simply the best that could be realized for Greater Syria. No other country could claim such coexistence among so much diversity.

When any one group – usually Muslim extremists – tried to increase or grab more power or resources at the expense of another stakeholder group, Assad Senior would swiftly and brutally punish that group for getting out of line and breaking consensus.

It worked so well that no other then Nancy “I’ll do anything for money” Pelosi was hawking publicly investing in Syria as an opportunity.

A New War for Israel! This Time in Yemen

Another war for the Israel*! Right now we are engaged in five different wars for Israel over there:

The Gaza War for Israel: US intelligence is helping the Genocide Jews’** genocide the Palestinians over there.

The Syrian War for Israel: This one started a long time ago, but it was mostly just providing aid to ISIS and Al Qaeda against Assad’s government. The US has established illegal bases all over Syria, and we are currently stealing 9

The Iraqi War for Israel: This one was also started a long time ago, and it’s never stopped. Right now we have bases in their country even though they have repeatedly ordered us to leave country. With incredible arrogance, we told them to go pound sand. Right now our bases and embassy in Iraq are being attacked by the Iraqi Army.

The sane and decent thing to do would be to evacuate all of our illegal bases in Syria and Iraq. We are truly “occupiers” over there the same way Israel is in the West Bank. But instead, Biden has ordered 1,500 more US troops to both Syria and Iraq! Good God, Democrats are far more militaristic and hawkish than Republicans nowadays.

Now a new one!

The Yemeni War for Israel: On the basis of a fake “protect shipping lines” lie (its a lie because only Israeli and ships going to Israel are being prevented from using the maritime waters), the US and UK have started yet another war for Israel. These two countries are now bombing Houthi targets because the Houthis tried to stop Israel from genociding the Arabs in Gaza.

The Lebanese War for Israel: This one hasn’t started yet, but we keep warning and threatening Lebanon and Hezbollah not to get too involved in attacking Israel. We even stationed an aircraft carrier off the coast to protect Israel from Lebanon.

*If you don’t mind being a bit more antisemitic about it, you can call these wars for the Jews instead of wars for Israel. But I’d rater play it safe for now.

They are truly both if you think about it, as the US Jews are the ones dragging us into all of these wars, let’s face it. However, they have the help of a majority of US Gentiles who support them. It’s not like the US government is full of antisemites who are only supporting Israel because the Jews are putting guns to their heads and saying do it or else. Nevertheless, no matter who is supporting it, all of these wars are being fought for Israel and their ethnic brethren in the US who feel such a passionate attachment to the state.

**This refers to Israeli Jews, not Jews in the Diaspora who aren’t harming a soul, much less genociding anyone.

For the Hundredth Time, Iran Has No Nuclear Weapons Program

One thing everyone needs to know:

Iran has no nuclear weapons program! Both the CIA and Mossad have certified that there is no nuclear weapons program. But on the other hand, the message these agencies put out to the masses is that Iran does have a nuclear weapons program. Everything you know about Iran is wrong!

This is truly a case of The Emperor Has No Clothes. The naked emperor is the lack of a nuclear weapons program. His nonexistent clothes are part of the null and void nuclear weapons program. Anyone who points out that the emperor has no clothes (Iran does not have a nuclear weapons program) will be gaslighted to Hell and back. Because everybody knows Iran has a nuclear weapons program. Except they don’t.

They’re gaslighting the living Hell out of the whole world with this fake BS.

Jewish “Control” over the US Government Is a Consensual Affair

The problem here is that way too many Americans support Israel. US support for Israel is not all down to ZOG and Jewish money controlling the US government, etc. Anyway, if it’s Jewish control, it’s consensual because the people in government like it just fine that way. And consensual control isn’t control at all. If you want the person to control you, he’s not really controlling you or if is, it’s no big deal.

A lot of the US government have a personal investment in Israel. Joe Biden is one of them. A lot of people around Biden have doubts about all these wars for Israel that we are fighting right now, but they all say “no one can control Biden or get through to him on this question.” It’s like talking to a wall and he doesn’t seem to see the humanity of Israel’s enemies over there.

A lot of the reason we are so wrapped up in Israel’s wars right now is because of Biden’s deep personal commitment to Israel that dates all the way back to the 1970’s. He said at that time he had a long conversation with Henry “Scoop” Jackson, the Washington “Senator from Boeing.” Jackson was a super-hawk advocate of the military-industrial complex that gets us into all of these militarist fiascos overseas. He was also more Zionist than a lot of Jews at the time.

It is from a group of Jews around Jackson’s office in the 1970’s that the neoconservatives themselves were actually birthed via Jews who had turned against the Democratic Party over Vietnam and especially the 1967 War in Israel.

So Biden’s been an ardent Zionist for probably 45-50 years!

Americans supported the Iraqi War for Israel to the hilt. There never were large demos against it. Even now, the Iraqi government has ordered us to get the Hell out two times. Both times we told them to go pound sand. The American people could care less! The Iraqi Army is now attacking us for refusing to leave their land and even 2/3 of 18-24 year olds support the US attacking back! So the public is still on board with this insane occupation.

Americans support the Syrian War for Israel to the hilt too. There has been nary a peep of protest against it. We are illegally occupying their land we have basically annexed 1/3 of the country and given it to the Kurds. We are stealing 9

There is not even one single peep of protest from any American about this outrage. In fact, Ilhan Omar supports our war on Syria, I’m guessing because she hates the Shia. 2/3 of 18-24 year olds think we should fight back against the Iraqi Army that is attacking us for our illegal bases on Syrian land.

Now we have started another war for the Jews. This is the Yemeni War for Israel. I haven’t seen any polls, but I’d gather that most Americans support what we are doing over there.

Perhaps fighting all of these wars for Israel is the right thing to do. A lot of Americans seem to think so. So does Joe Biden. Perhaps Israel is this great country that deserves all of this treasure and risk. Perhaps Jews are the best minority in the US whose value far exceeds their

The thing is that no one ever gets told that these are wars for the Jews or more properly wars for Israel since they are not being fought for Diaspora Jews because they have no literal skin in the game. I think they should be told that we are fighting all these wars for Israel, as Americans don’t seem to be aware of that. Then they can make up their own mind about what to do.

What Do Middle Eastern Christians Think of Israel?

I dated an Iranian Assyrian Christian woman a while back. While she definitely didn’t like Muslims (she said they would not let them touch the bread at markets because the Christians would “contaminate” it), I was surprised that she absolutely did not like Israel either one bit, and I also got the impression that she didn’t think a whole lot of Jews to boot.

I said the US is a Christian country and she laughed at me:

This is not a Christian country. This is a Jewish country. All you care about here is money!

Shades of Marx, n’est pas?:

Money is the jealous god of Israel, in face of which no other god may exist

Karl Marx, On the Jewish Question, 1845.

Some Syrian Christians were running the local corner market here for a while. They were fanatical supporters of Assad like most Syrian Christians. I was stunned by their utter contempt for Israel, as great as that of their Muslim counterparts.

They were supplanted by Maronite Christians from Lebanon, who are noted for their pro-Western, pro-Israel and anti-Muslim and even anti-Arab (they absurdly deny that they are Arabs and insist instead that they are “Phoenicians”) sentiments. He was talking to my brother, and even this guy regaled my brother with proud tales of serving as a sniper in the Lebanese Army and fighting against Israel.

Some Republican idiot politician was talking to a group of Arab-American Christians and he said something about American Christians needing to support Israel. He was stunned when the crowd roundly booed him.

Most Arab Christians are some form of Orthodox. The Orthodox have been less yielding on the Jewish Question than the Western Catholic Church. Greece and Armenia are Orthodox and both countries are very antisemitic. Russian Orthodox antisemitism has been well-known forever. Solzhenitsyn is a typical Russian Orthodox monarchist and he was not crazy about Jews at all. Check out 200 Years Together.

Alexander Solzhenitsyn, “200 Years Together”

Solzhenitsyn’s last book, 200 Years Together, about the relationship between Jews and Russians in Russia, is actually an excellent and largely factual book. The Jews, who have no money and power at all (and if you say they do, you’re an antisemite), somehow managed to to huge their vast nonexistent money and power to completely prevent this book from being published in English.

An English translation appeared pretty quickly, but it was almost impossible to get a publisher in the US due to pressure from helpless and immiserated Jews. They finally found one, but then no bookstore would carry it due to pressure from powerless impoverished Jews. I believe you can somehow get it online now though if you look around enough.

While it is true technically that Jews go back in Russia all the way to the 1000 AD, they didn’t arrive in any significant numbers until they built up a community in Odessa. A strong Jewish presence has been noted in Odessa for a very long time. I’m sure a lot of them stayed during the USSR, which was a very Jew-friendly country. After after Ukraine went independent, a lot of Jews stayed, especially in the antisemitic Western Ukraine where many of them traditionally lived.

This area is the home of the former Pale of Settlement which had gone back and forth between Poland and Russia for a long time. I’d always heard what is apparently the typical Jewish “gloom and doom” history of the Pale which was that the Czar threw all the Jews in the Pale to keep them away from everybody else, but with some modern readings, I’ve come to believe that he actually put them there for their own protection.

People have it all wrong. The pogroms were not set up by the Czars in most cases. As in Europe, the Jews typically had a tight relationship with the royal ruling class. The Jews were an elite or elite-adjacent group. Even during the era of expulsions, Jews lived better, healthier and longer lives and had more money and better material resources than most Gentiles who after all were groaning under the   back weight of serfdom thrust upon them.

It was similiar in Russia. Sure there were some antisemitic Czars, but most of them were pro-Jewish. The people leading the pogroms were often poor peasants.

Jews loaned money at exorbitant interest rates (in case I heard it was 4

However right around that time, the Jews who had taverns all over the Pale sold them vodka to get through the cold winter. As you might imagine, the peasants drank up all of the profits from their harvest and now they were in even deeper to the Jews. The Jews walked away with the loot both times.

I’m not defending pogroms, which were horrible, and most Jews were not money-lenders. I’m just providing some cultural context here.

MAGA Against For Israel and Against Antisemitism!

Ezra Pound: Antisemitism and Personality

Ezra Pound, Venice, 1960’s

First commenter: Ezra Pound is an outstanding poet and does not get the literary credit he deserves.

Second commenter: First commenter: NO he deserves NOTHING he was a damn Nazi.

Third commenter: He was more a sympathizer of Italian Fascism; they are distinct, I believe. And Mussolini refused to meet Pound after Pound wrote a half dozen letters offering his ideas about usury and social credit. Mussolini also thought Pound was mad.

Of course. He was one of the greatest poets of the 20th century. The Cantos are awesome.

He’s also known as an antisemite, but guess who else was? TS Eliot. George Orwell. And Voltaire. It only became proscribed here in the West very recently, and it’s reportedly back in the ring for another round as we speak. But at the same time antisemitism was much more common in Europe circa 1920 then it is today. In certain places like Germany or Austria it was basically normal to be an antisemite. You were odd if you were not one.

He is said to have recanted his antisemitism late in life. He met Allen Ginsberg in Venice in 1967 and told Ginsberg,

The one thing I regret was falling prey to that middle class vice, antisemitism.

This has been questioned by a Nazi who met him at St. Elizabeth’s and said he was completely unrepentant, but he left St. Elizabeth’s in 1958, so perhaps he did change.

I don’t care about his politics. They were deplorable, but so what? I’m not aware that he killed anyone.

Celine was an antisemite and a Nazi who also produced Nazi propaganda. Celine was also a great writer but a rather deplorable man. But he continued to treat his poor patients for free until he died. And he never killed anyone either.

Face it, a lot of writers are lousy people!

Shakespeare was a miser, a rich man who refused to help his neighbors during a famine winter when many of them died. He was a tightwad who hounded his poor neighbors for the smallest debts. Shall we stop reading him too?

Pound was already a morally dubious person back in 1922 in Paris. He already an antisemite as he came to antisemitism quite early in life. He was a womanizer who like to run 2-3 women at once at any given time. He was incapable of monogamy. Not that I consider those bad qualities because I lived like that myself for a while.

And to the feminists reading this, he was indeed a misogynist like Henry Miller, another misogynistic womanizer. He was quite intemperate, an elitist snob who hated the average man. He had an ego the size of a small planet, and I believe he could also be a bit of an asshole.

Official psychiatric diagnosis: Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

He also got very depressed toward the end of his life. Diagnosis late in life, near death: Bipolar Disorder.

Support for Israel in the US Continues to Decline

I look over these polls about Americans’ support for Israel all the time nowadays.

Prior to October 7, 7

Even more striking is the decline in Americans who support Israel as opposed to supporting other choices.

After October 7, US support for Israel had dropped to 4

But two months into the war, this figure had already crashed. It went from 4

A poll after October 7 found 5

The question about supporting the way the war was fought was not asked again, but the military aid question was. And incredibly, support for US military aid to Israel has fallen from 5

After October 7, 6

Two months later, support for a ceasefire had fallen to 5

Presumably if he did this, the Jewish Lobby and wealthy Jews would fail to contribute to Democrats or might even give money to Republicans instead. As Ilhan Omar said, “It’s all about the Benjamins, baby.” She was called antisemite over that statement and forced to apologize, but she was right. She told the straight up truth. There’s nothing antisemitic about it as truth is a defense against antisemitism.

Instead, Biden is trying to have it both ways, shoveling weapons at Israel and at the same time claiming to be pressuring Israel to minimize civilian casualties. As far as the latter request goes, Israel has said,

Sure, we’ll do it. Right-o!

Then they went ahead and kept on doing it anyway. In other words, they lied again. I could have told you they would act that way because I know what these people are like. They don’t listen much to anyone.

The problem as in so many cases where one is trying to have it both ways, is that you end up getting no one’s support and instead you anger both sides. Biden’s playing a game here, a con, a scam. He thinks he call fool his base with this, but it’s not working.

Israel is hemorrhaging support in the US and a majority of Americans are now in support of cutting off military aid to the Jews’ little hate state in the Levant. However, 2/3 of Americans have a positive opinion of Israel and only 1

As you might guess, the youngest cohort, 18-25, is where Israel is hemorrhaging support in the worst way. However, the 26-34 age group doesn’t support Israel a whole lot either and in some cases, neither does the 35-44 age group. The 45-64 and 65+ age groups quite reliably support Israel, with support being particularly dramatic in the oldest cohort. In general support for Israel climbs with age in the US.
