Brilliant critique of a shockingly ignorant and dangerous position- thankyou for sharing this

Wars do have one thing for certain. It creates paths and outcomes that generally do not fall in line with the war planners. Sometimes it takes years or decades but then those come back to haunt you. The Algerian Revolution lasted between 1954-62:

The war caused the deaths of between 400,000 and 1,500,000 Algerians, 25,600 French soldiers, and 6,000 Europeans. War crimes committed during the war included massacres of civilians, rape, and torture; the French destroyed over 8,000 villages and relocated over 2 million Algerians to concentration camps.

The following article provides the context needed to understand where such brutality comes from:

I am shocked, though, that this study was published by a U.S. military site. Who the hell approved it for publication, with Its blatant genocide?

Do you really want to rely on Laurent Guyenot to analyse Netanyhu's mental health issues?

The issue isn't Netanyahu. It's the ultra-right.

It's a whole lot of things, but Netanyahu is highly responsible for the carnage played out in Gaza,. He gave his support to Hamas through the years because like him, they did not support a two state solution. He cultivated them. He is part of the problem in a significant way and I can't wait to have his ass on trial for the charges he has earned. A two state solution like Yitzhak Rabin wanted would have been the answer, but Netanyhu fanned the flames of hate once again and is responsible for his death. He's a sick SOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Don't defend him to me.

I'm ignoring him, not defending him. The problem goes so much deeper...

Had someone else been in charge to counter, to challenge the other issues in a constructive way I think this issue could have been resolved years ago. He reminds me of people like Cheney, and the rest of the neocons that have slaughtered millions. I'm sick of a century, only in it's 23 year that has been filled with so much death and destruction. Don't think I don't hold my country, the USA highly accountable as well, and responsible for what is going on in Gaza, but they have the perfect hand maiden in Netanyahu.

They don’t care. Nothing will come of this.

Fascinating article you shared. Borderline anti-Semitic but also full of real insights. I see the psychopathy also in spiritual terms. A demonic entity has been visited upon a whole ancient tribe due to their control by an alien Demi-god, to whom one could say they sold their soul.... much to the future damage of many tribes caught up in their wake. That entity is completely unleashed now, creating increasing chaos in each generation that takes up its cause

Would you elaborate on your comment. Is the publication of this anti-Palestinian article seem anti-Semitic to you?

Expand full comment

Not sure what you mean… The linked article by Guyanot is certainly not anti-Palestinian… But a stickler could interpret it, like any anti-Israel article, as antisemitic, which is a knee jerk

trap that many are falling into, and have for decades.

No, I agree that for too long Israel has prevented criticism of it's actions with the accusation of antisemitism, which I think is now a thing of the past. I feel Netanyahu is a psychopath, or close to it. Not just something I came up with, but I remember that many blamed him for killing of Yitzhak Rabin. His rhetoric was not only harsh, but I remember reading he even had a mock funeral for him and he walked behind his coffin. He incited others to kill him, and someone did. Even Rabin's wife held him accountable for her husband's death. Their are varying degrees of any mental condition, but Netanyahu is not normal, and at the very least he's an extremely narcissistic character with no sense of boundaries, and that was quite evident when he paid a visit to the White House due to his opposition to Obama's Iran deal. Wasn't Netanyahu facing felony conviction charges, but I haven't followed that. I don't think he's sick due to some religious perspective, but I do think he's a bastard, with a little capacity for empathy.

Fascinating article, though the use of the word genocide is specious to describe what’s going on in Gaza - though if the thoughts in the article manifest in reality, that would be bad. Very disturbed by the comments about refuted Israeli claims about beheadings and rapes - those are true reports. Aside from photographs there are medical reports that women were raped so brutally their pelvises were broken. There’s enough to critique the Netanyahu govt about. But denying Hamas’ cruelty is beyond understanding.

they are reports about israelisguards raping Palestinian women and children in the israeli prisons, IDF itself said the story of beheaded settler babies is fake, as the burned baby showed by the idiot shapiro came out to be AI edited photos of a dog, so you have not earned your shekel agent 'Bibi'.

Very much in accordance to the world view of Rabbinic Judaism, where the Jewish people ( the purpose and the crown of G-d's creation) instructs the Americans (Goyim created only to serve Jews https://archive.is/Xhnn) to fight Amalek in Gaza and Lebanon, a stepping stone to the path of creating "Greater Israel" as "HaShem promised his only people, his only children".

Terrible.

This title and your allegations are aggressively misleading, bordering on libelous.
