I started to post this story a few days ago, but dropped it.
After George Galloway’s rabid assertion that Israel caused the ructions in the Ukraine, who needs another antisemitic diatribe?
But what the hell:
An American commentator who appeared on state-owned Iranian Press TV suggested that Israel was responsible for the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, which went missing on March 8.
The comments by the commentator, Dr. Kevin Barrett, were made during an interview which aired on March 30. They were posted to YouTube by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
“Why are they giving us photoshopped pictures of Iranian passengers?” said Barrett, referring to the two Iranian nationals who boarded the flight with stolen passports.
“Obviously there was some kind of a set-up to try to blame this on Iran,” he continued. “Precisely what that is we don’t know, but the Israelis have been using their assets, including the head of El-Al security, who was a 9/11 suspect – he lives in New Jersey, I forget the gentleman’s name…”
“He and other Israelis have been putting out as much media propaganda as they can, trying to blame this on Iran, saying it is a waste of time to look at this as being anything other than an Iranian hijacking,” said Barrett.
“Well, Christopher Bollyn just found that there is an identical twin of this plane. It has been sitting in a hangar in Tel Aviv, Israel, for the past couple of months. There was a shell-game played with this aircraft. It was in the south of France, and then they moved it down to Israel. Speculation is that there was some sort of false-flag plan afoot, perhaps another planes-into-buildings deception like 9/11,” he claimed. “We have so many parallels between this event and 9/11.”
If you’ve got the stomach, here’s another fevered imagining of Israel’s perfidy. I picture Tom Cruise or Matt Damon as the Israeli PM, fighting off trained Iranian assassins with his bare hands before pouring mind-controlling drugs in the world’s water supply.
So, why did I change my mind. Why give bandwidth to noted Israel-haters like George Galloway and this other fellow?
For a laugh? To hold them up to ridicule?
If this is the kind of nonsense in the water supply, what else is there? We may turn up our noses at such putridity, but what can we not smell due to the overwhelming stench? My answer is: everything the New York Times prints about Israel.
Demonized as terrorists by Israelis and lionized as freedom fighters by Palestinians, prisoners like Mr. Salah have become a flash point in the troubled peace talks . . .
One person’s terrorist is another person’s freedom fighter, is that it?
Israeli court records show Mr. Tenenbaum was found about 7:30 a.m. on June 14, 1993, lying on his back in a bed near the hotel bar, a pillow covering his bloodied face. According to the 29-page verdict convicting him of murder, Mr. Salah told investigators that he and another man had gone to Netanya in search of a Palestinian suspected of collaborating with Israel, and happened upon the guard.
The other man said, “Let’s kill him so that we did not make the trip for nothing,” the verdict quotes Mr. Salah having said. “Only when we saw the guard sleeping did we decide to kill him as a protest against the occupation.”
The self-styled “paper of record” can print as seeming fact that a random thrill-kill of a 72-year-old Holocaust survivor by two Arab maggots (with apologies to maggots and their doting mothers everywhere) is somehow a protest against the occupation. That’s what I’m talking about.
People as smart as Simon Schama and as dirt-clod dumb as Alice Walker can bemoan the Israeli treatment of the “Palestinians”, but based on what? Not on conspiracy theories about the covert Israeli operation against the polar bears. But on slanted, twisted, backward “news” coverage they read, see, or hear in the media every day.
Maybe the Jews didn’t bring down the Malaysian plane, but those bastards are guilty of something, I just know it!
