Like the Four Riders of the Apocalypse, the unknown kamikaze rode their
giant crafts into the two visible symbols of American world domination,
Wall Street and the Pentagon. They vanished in flames and smoke, and we
do not yet know who they were. They could be practically anybody:
American Nationalists, American Communists, American Fundamentalist
Christians, American Anarchists, anybody who rejects the twin gods of
the dollar and the M-16, who hates the stock market and interventions
overseas, who dreams of America for Americans, who does not want to
support the drive for world domination. They could be Native Americans
returning to Manhattan, or Afro-Americans who still have not received
compensation for slavery.
They could be foreigners of practically any extraction, as Wall Street
and the Pentagon ruined many lives of people all over the globe. Germans
can remember the fiery holocaust of Dresden with its hundreds of
thousands of peaceful refugees incinerated by the US Air Force. Japanese
will not forget the nuclear holocaust of Hiroshima. The Arab world still
feels the creeping holocaust of Iraq and Palestine. Russians and East
Europeans feel the shame of Belgrade avenged. Latin Americans think of
American invasions of Panama and Granada, of destroyed Nicaragua and
defoliated Colombia. Asians count their dead of Vietnam war, Cambodia
bombings, Laos CIA operations in millions. Even a pro-American, Russian
TV broadcaster could not refrain from saying, 'now Americans begin to
understand the feelings of Baghdad and Belgrade'.
The Riders could be anybody who lost his house to the bank, who was
squeezed from his work and made permanently unemployed, who was declared
an Untermensch by the new Herrenvolk. They could be Russians,
Malaysians, Indonesians, Pakistanis, Congolese, as their economy was
destroyed by Wall Street and the Pentagon. They could be anybody, and
they are everybody. Their identity is quite irrelevant, but the Jews
already decided: it has to be Arabs.
One would think, after Oklahoma, we should become less hasty with our
conclusions. But my countrymen, Israeli politicians are impatient folk.
The flames in Manhattan did not die out yet, they started political
profit taking. Mr Ehud Barak came live on BBC, and said 'Arafat' within
three minutes flat. On CNN, his twin Bibi Natanyahu appropriated the
blame to Arabs, Muslims, Palestinians. Shimon Peres, an old wizened
wizard, spoke against suicide as a psychiatric adviser, reminding his
audience of Palestinian attacks. He looked worried: it is hard to
enslave people who are not afraid to die. This old killer of Kana even
mentioned Gospels. Density of Israelis on the air approached the
saturation point. They insinuated and incited, pushing their shopping
list into a chalk-white face of shell-shocked America: please, destroy
Iran! And Iraq! And Libya, plees!
The first twenty four hours of maximal exposure were utilised by the
Jewish propaganda machine to its utmost. Not a single fact was yet
known, but racist anti-Arab slurs became a commonplace. While we Jews
quite reasonably object to any reference to the Jewishness of a bad guy,
we really do not mind producing revolting racist drivel of our own. A
good Jewish-American activist, James Jordan, warned in al-Awda: "Making
broad, all-inclusive statements and insinuations about "Jews" completely
marginalizes and discredits your organization". But how come the endless
stream of 'broad, all-inclusive statements and insinuations', about 'the
Arabs' did not 'completely marginalized and discredited' the Jewish
organisations and media who practice it? Apparently, it is a Jewish
right to decide who will be marginalized in America and who will not.
The connection was in the minds. The American Jewish supremacists want
to turn all the world into Palestine, where the natives will enjoy harsh
local rule and limited local rights, while the master race will have a
rather different level of life. Israel is just a small-scale model of
their new brave world of globalisation.
As there were no hard facts against Palestinians, the Israelis made
their damnedest from the scenes of joy shot in East Jerusalem. It is a
rather weak point, and I'll tell you why. In Agatha Christie's Murder on
the Orient Express, her favourite detective M. Poireau encounters an
unusual complication: all passengers on board the train have had a good
reason to bump off the unpleasant old lady. My dear American friends,
your leaders placed your great country into the old lady's shoes.
Israelis used the event to the max. They even killed some ten
Palestinians and destroyed five Goyiish houses in Jerusalem. The reports
were rather gleeful, in the style 'we told you', and the experts of
Israeli TV concluded by one o'clock, the attack 'was good for the Jews'.
Why? It would strengthen American support of Israel.
The kamikaze attack could do exactly that. America could enter a new
cycle of violence in its troubled relations with the world. Revenge will
follow revenge, until one of the sides will be obliterated by nuclear
blast. It appears president Bush prefers this course. He declared war on
his and Israel's adversaries. Bush did not even understand that the war
was declared by the US many years ago, only now it started to come home.
So many people are sick of America's ham-fisted approach, that the
countdown for the next attack began.
Alternatively, America could see this painful strike at her Wall Street
and her Pentagon, as the last call to repent. She should change her
advisers, and build her relations with the world afresh, on equal
footing. Probably she should rule in the domination-obsessed Jewish
supremacist elites of Wall Street and media, part company with the
apartheid Jewish state. She could become again the universally loved,
rather parochial America of Walt Whitman and Thomas Edison, Henry Ford
and Abe Lincoln.
