means and lies and hatreds

August 15, 2006

“It is the State of Israel that fails to recognize, respect or defer to the internationally lawful Israeli state of 1948. Israel wants more; more water and more villages. To obtain this, there are those who want, with God’s assistance, a final solution to the Palestinian problem.” – Jostein Gaarder, ‘God’s chosen people’ 

apparently, ynetnews, a Jewish site, has only just realised that some foreign media organizations – namely CNN and the BBC – have been publishing or broadcasting stories with a sympathetic bias towards Lebanon.  i won’t argue with this – i have access to CCN stories via 3 News and BBC World here on New Zealand tv, and will admit that i have noticed that they use phrases like “captured soldiers” and “Israeli propaganda”.  i only notice this, however, because i can compare it to news services like FOX News, (which, unfortunately, also plays here in NZ), who still insist that the Israeli soldiers were “kidnapped”.  how does one kidnap a foreign soldier in one’s own country?  when you sign up for war, you should expect the possibility of capture while you’re invading or occupying foreign soil.

i must admit, i have been feeling hopeful lately while watching and reading the news.  i had noticed the bias towards the plight of the Lebanese and the Hezbollah “resistance” (as long as i stayed away from FOX).  it seemed like the world was starting to wake up and realise what was really going on.  More importantly, people started asking questions and making their voices heard.

if you wish to enlighten yourself on these topics, i urge you to read the following articles – knowledge is power, and all that.  the first is the ynet article and the second is about Jostein Gaarder.  the last two raise some questions about the recent “foiled terror plot” – namely “why is airport security making passengers mix explosive cocktails in the trash?” and “haven’t we seen this somewhere before?”

reruns all become our history

August 2, 2006

“Past events, it is argued, have no objective existence, but survive only in written records and in human memories.  The past is whatever the records and the memories agree upon.  And since the Party is in full control of all records, and in equally full control of the minds of its members, it follows that the past is whatever the Party chooses to make it.” – George Orwell, ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four’

we are all being lied to.  every day.  <ominous music>

muzzled.jpgit’s amazing how completely indifferent we all are about the fact that virtually everything we are being told by those in power is false.  the facts are there, but because the media chooses to ignore them, so do we.  no one likes to make waves – or, worse, being labelled a terrorist or anti-Semitic.  so we sit back and let the world leaders do what they like, as long as it’s not in our neighbourhood.

take the current conflict in Lebanon, for example.  you may have had some vague idea that this all started because Lebanon kidnapped an Israeli soldier or two.  even this excuse for war was hypocritical, since Lebanon was merely retaliating to Israel kidnapping some of their troops.  Lebanon wanted to trade captives (even though the Israeli soldiers were captured on the Lebanese side of the border, so were technically not actually kidnapped), but Israel refused to “negotiate with terrorists”.  so they decided to start a terrorist campaign of their own, and weeks later, here we are.

please, don’t get me wrong.  i do not hate Jews.  i am not pro-Muslim.  i’m just sick of the mainstream media telling me what to believe.  not just the media, but also the historians.  and i wish the United Nations would grow some balls.  because, really, this isn’t about a couple of troops.  this isn’t even about fighting terrorism.  this is about deception and manipulation on a global scale.

to really understand what’s going on in the world, we need to look at history.  the following articles give a really good brief history of how the New World Order / Zionist agenda has used the plight of Israel and the Jewish people for their own evil means.  in short, there was no targeted genocide of Jews committed by the Nazis during WWII.  there was no reason for Jews to receive protection and reparation in the form of their own country.  when Mel Gibson ranted drunkenly during his arrest recently about how “the Jews are responsible for all the wars in the world”, he was mostly right – it’s not all Jews but the crazy Zionists.  Judaism wants nothing to do with Zionism, yet Zionists are waging wars in the Middle East for land that is not rightfully theirs, all in the name of the Jews.  question ’em, question Israel at all, and you’re labelled anti-Semitic – which is ironic, since the race of Semites is comprised mostly of Arabs and only a portion of the Jews.  none of it seems to make any sense, but it’ll all come together when you read the following articles, written more eloquently than i ever could.  some of them may seem long, but even if you just skim-read the first one with all the pictures, hopefully you’ll feel more informed. 

remember, he who controls the media controls the minds of the people.  it is up to us to search out the truth for ourselves.  if more people knew the real reasons why all of these wars around the world were being fought, then perhaps we could get closer to resolving the conflicts and exposing the real criminals.
