The Not-So-Innocent Victims of 9/11
Every year on this date, Americans pretend that they were the victims of an unprovoked sneak attack in which a small number of Islamic fanatics committed an act of insane terrorism against innocents, when little could be further from the truth.
+
The reality that we have still not accepted as a Nation is that on September 11th, 2001, true victims of endless, monstrous crimes committed by the United States Government in our name, STRUCK BACK and did a tiny fraction of the damage the U.S. Government, with the implicit and even forthritely stated backing of the great preponderance of the American people, has done to Palestinians, Egyptians, Lebanese, Jordanians, Syrians, and other Moslem Arabs — and even, as "collateral damage", some Christian Arabs — in decades of violence on behalf of the insane, STUPID project, Radical Zionism, which was practically guaranteed to produce endless war. The King-Crane Commission foresaw that no Jewish state in that Arab land could be created or maintained except by force. Why didn't the Jewish Diaspora, which likes to think itself the smartest people on Earth, see that?
+
In non-radical Zionism, Jews would have sought to move to the land of their ancestors as individual immigrants eager to live in peace with the people who were already there, as Mexicans have migrated to the United States. But Zionists came not as mild immigrants grateful for the right to tread the streets that the prophets walked upon, but as a conquering army. Why don't Americans put the Israel-Palestine conflict in American terms: millions of Mexicans reconquering the U.S. Southwest, and ripping it away from the United States as "Aztlán"? If we support Israel, why don't we equally support Aztlán, and consent to have Americans in the Southwest treated by their Mexican conquerors the same way Palestinians are treated by Israel?
+
We were too stupid to learn the lesson we should have drawn from 9/11, and disown our to-the-hilt backing of every single crime committed by Israel against Arabs and decency, in a racist, theocratic war without end. Quite the contrary, we made a pious show of our innocence, and indignation that anyone would attack us angels. We are not angels.
+
In a democracy, The People are ultimately the ones responsible for the acts of their government. So, if the U.S. Government conducts decades of military and financial backing of the most extreme and violent outrages against morality by the government and people of Israel, the people of the United States must be held responsible. They could have ended U.S. support for Israel at any time, be it at the time of the Israeli sneak attack upon Egypt that started the 1967 War, the mass murders at the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps, the Israeli bombing of Tunisia and Iraq (two countries that don't even adjoin Israel), or a thousand other points in Israel's endless war against Arabs and, by extension, against Islam. But we didn't, did we? We still haven't, so still deserve to be COUNTERattacked by the victims of Israel's crimes, which the U.S. Govenment, politicians of both major parties, and opinion leaders in the punditocracy and churches, have backed without fail, and with only the most timid of fake criticisms. How do we know they are fake? Because every brief moratorium on strident U.S. support and massive financial backing ended soon after, and the U.S. resumed shipping thousands of tons of military hardware and boatloads of money to Israel. And the voices that expressed tiny reservations about Israel's prior crimes went silent, to permit Israel's NEXT crime, and the one thereafter, and the one after that, and the next — on and on without end.
+
How does it ever end? Politicians fall all over themselves to sound as Radical Zionist as they possibly can, as tho Israel not only IS the United States, but that, if anything, Americans owe their FIRST loyalty to Israel, NOT the United States, and that any politician who stands for American principles and the defense of the United States by tossing Israel overboard is guilty of TREASON.
+
So, how many genuine innocents were killed on September 11th? How many of these victims actually backed the crimes of Israel? How many of the people killed at the World Trade Center, Pentagon, or on Flite 93, tho privately appalled at the behavior of Israel, ever acted on their concerns by writing even a single email to any national politician, or even one letter to the editor of any major newspaper or magazine? How many ever signed an online or hardcopy petition to the President or Congress demanding that we stop supporting racism, theocracy, and religious discrimination by Israel, on pain of a permanent and total cutoff of all U.S. aid — public and private, by a ban on private transfers to an embargoed Israel? How many sent a letter or email, or made a telefone call to the Israeli embassy to express their opposition to the extension of settlements, or the unilateral annexation of all of Jerusalem, or the use of live ammunition against unarmed demonstrators, or anything else?
+
If anyone killed on 9/11 did NOTHING to object to or stop the wrongful behavior of Israel or U.S. support for that behavior, how innocent, truly, were they of the crimes they did nothing to stop? To quote — or paraphrase(?), Edmund Burke — "All that is necessary to the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." Another version of that sentiment known actually to have been uttered by Burke may be even more relevant to the death of thousands whose only crime was in not standing against U.S. Govenment support of Israel's crimes: "When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle."
+
How many more Americans have to die before this Nation stands against Zionism and demands that Israel be peacefully merged back into Palestine to create a tolerant, religiously neutral, multiethnic nation more along our lines? We are a tolerant, multiethnic, multiracial, multireligious, huge success. Israel is a massive failure held afloat only by $3 billion a year of intergenerational WELFARE from the American people. Rewarded year after year for stupid and violently bigoted behavior, Israelis will never stop their self-destructive, evil acts. Throw them back upon their own resources ONLY, and maybe they'll find a way to make peace.
+
But there IS only one WAY to make peace in that area: reunite Palestine. Two peoples can share a common territory — see any U.S. state or well-integrated city. But they cannot each dominate. It is the insistence on dominating that produces war. And the refusal ever to give up on one-sided domination produces endless war.
+
If Israel cannot emulate us, it can at least stop parasitizing us and forcing us to co-conspire in its crimes. Then the attacks on us by indignant Moslems will just stop.
