The Violent Radicalization of Israel
Rev. Ted Pike
2 June 2010
PR representative, the Anti-Defamation League, accuses the political
right in western nations of moving toward increased "violent
radicalization." Yet, that description applies best to the
behavior of Israel toward the "Free Gaza" flotilla this
a result of mounting criticism of Israel's bombardment and quarantine
of Gaza, Israeli leaders now portray Israel's strong critics as
potentially violent terrorist sympathizers and insist that Israel's
response be correspondingly severe.
December, Diaspora Foreign Minister Yuli Edelstein said “to
be anti-Israel is to be anti-Semitic.” Foreign minister Avigdor
Lieberman agreed that strong criticism of Israel is anti-Semitism:
cooperation with terrorists who desire the destruction of the Jewish
state. This week Lieberman portrayed the "Free Gaza" flotilla
as "violent propaganda."
of critics is a beginning that leads Israel to extreme, unlawful,
and—as we see in the slaying of nine peace activists—violent
conclusions. If Israel's critics are potentially violent terrorists,
then, according to Israel:
* No place on earth should be safe for such threats to Israel's
existence. Not Argentina, London, Dubai, or international waters.
Israel continues Jewry's millennia-old claim that they deserve
special rights since Jews are "God's chosen people"
and have suffered more than any other. These rights now include
Israel's transcendence over the national boundaries and international
laws that govern other nations. Israel is above the charge of
piracy that would be leveled against any other nation that stormed
and seized a ship in international waters in peacetime. Israel
has the right to blame those who violently oppose its takeover,
being above international law which says crews who resist pirates
* Flotilla members who say they are concerned for the people
of Gaza are really out to destroy Israel. Their ships probably
contain weapons to aid Hamas. The cement and building materials
they deliver are to build bunkers for Hamas. Such "peace
activists" have no interest in the welfare of the Gazans,
only their own anti-Semitic agenda. The flotilla contains only
quasi-terrorists on the high seas. Israel is thus justified, as
America's trusted ally in the war on terror, to board and seize
their ships, using whatever possibly violent "counter-terrorism"
measures are necessary.
ADL Brings Israel's Premises to the World
the Anti-Defamation League, Israel's PR representative and official
opponent of what it calls the global anti-Semitism "pandemic,"
is bringing to the western world the same dire suspicion (even paranoia)
against critics of Israel. Increasingly, ADL and "ADL South,"
the Jewish Southern Poverty Law Center, portray critics of Zionism
as using legitimate criticism only as a mask for the same virulent,
Jew-destroying anti-Semitism that spawned the Holocaust. Yet ADL/SPLC
are not content to vilify critics of the Jewish state. Their negative
stereotyping extends to all in the Christian/conservative right
who resist secular Judaism's pro-homosexual, pro-abortion, pro-hate
law agenda. That includes tea partiers, militia groups, and the
whole evangelical right, whom they now portray (in their MIAC Missouri
police document) as
potentially violent domestic terrorists. ADL echoes Israel's
justification of its attack on the peace flotilla. It says the flotilla
exists "to lure the Israeli military onto the ship where many
were waiting to attack them. It is deeply disturbing that the leaders
of the flotilla and their sponsors were willing to engage in an
elaborate sham as a pretext for ambushing and violently attacking
Israeli military personnel." (May 31 “ADL Calls Flotilla
to Gaza a Deliberate Provocation against Israel”)
may be provided
by Knesset member Hanin Zoabi (Balad) who participated in the
flotilla. "It was clear from the size of the force that boarded
the ship that the purpose was not only to stop this sail, but to
cause the largest possible number of fatalities in order to stop
such initiatives in the future."
is really disturbing is the predictable sympathy of evangelical
media to the transparently manipulative ADL/Israeli point of view.
Although leadership of the religious right in America is widely
aware of ADL's boast that it was behind creation and passage of
the potentially Christian-persecuting federal hate crimes bill,
evangelical oracle WorldNetDaily rushes to agree with ADL/Israel
in this dispute. Through WND's Jerusalem-based mouthpiece to Mossad,
Aaron Klein, WorldNetDaily denigrates the "violent Gaza flotilla."
quotes the government of Israel, saying the peace activists
had "clearly prepared their weapons in advance" in order
to attack Israeli commandos.
it is not just 679 peace activists who were unlawfully attacked
or threatened by Israel as terrorist sympathizers. ADL/Israel views
critical, uncooperative humanity, floating in a sea of increasingly
turbulent doubt and disapproval of Israel, as its enemies. As such,
it is you and I who must also submit and be quiet - or face similar
to the demonstrated behavior of Israel this week, the whole world
is now subject to its jurisdiction.

those new to the hate bill controversy that is the topic of most
of Rev. Pike's work, please link to the following articles:

earlier on this same page I comment:
Rev Ted Pike is completely independent from Captain May and myself
in terms of his political and religious views, the threats we
address all stem from the same corrupt power elite. I mention
in my concluding remarks below that this elite “would mobilize
us into domestic tyranny and foreign wars, while distracting us
from economic depression and the groups that brought it about.”
is the real problem, not the lack of more “hate crime”
laws. If anything, we need even more freedom of speech to speak
truth to power, sort out our problems, and develop peaceful strategies
to handle high level malefactors. This is why we urgently need
for members of Congress to not only take a principled stand and
stop all hate crime legislative initiatives, but to also roll
back all the existing hate crime laws currently on the books.
crime laws actually pose a major national security threat. They
condition Americans to feel that certain types of thought are inherently
immoral or illegal, even if they do not result in any form of violence
or infringement on the rights of others.
our articles related to false flag attacks, Capt.
Eric H. May and I have discussed strong evidence that Mossad-CIA
was behind 9-11, the mere "thought" of which would some
day be outlawed once hate crime oversight bureaucracies become firmly
implanted in America. We can expect government hate crime overwatch
entities to experience the usual cancerous growth and abuse of power
that libertarian writer and Presidential candidate Harry Browne
described in his classic book Why
Government Doesn't Work.
