Over a thousand Israeli civilians were slaughtered by the islamic terrorist group Hamas, in the worst attack on Jews since the Holocaust. The terrorists massacred hundreds of young people at a music festival for peace, committed vile atrocities against women and children, filmed their crimes, and broadcast them to the world in real-time.
More than 100 Israelis, including an 85-year old Holocaust survivor, have been taken hostage.
This operation, requiring thousands of people to execute, came as a total surprise to the Israel Defense Force (IDF), which was unprepared and reportedly took four hours to respond to the scene at the music festival.
The failure to detect this operation has been repeatedly called a “massive intelligence failure” by the pundits and press. I beg to differ. Netanyahu knew.
Ten days before the attack, the Egyptian Intelligence Minister, the top spy in Egypt, warned Netanyahu about the plan in “very clear terms.”
Netanyahu did nothing, expressed little interest in the report, and to the surprise of the people delivering the message, ignored it. Ten days later a thousand civilians lay murdered in cold blood by the people Netanyahu was told would do it.
To make matters worse for the Prime Minister of Israel, in his address to Israelis about the attack, Netanyahu lied about Egypt warning him, and specifically said that report was “fake news” and “propaganda.” (below at 2:45)
It’s important to understand that for many years, Netanyahu and his Likud Party have propped up Hamas—and allowed them to be funded, despite knowing Hamas is fundamentally a terrorist organization devoted to destroying the State of Israel.
Consider what it means that Netanyahu knew this attack was coming, intentionally did nothing, and then lied to cover it up. It means he wanted this to happen because he believed it would benefit him. He believed murdered civilians would give him more power. Why?
Netanyahu is facing serious corruption charges while he simultaneously attempts to weaken the court system to give himself the power to exonerate himself. This has led to widespread protests accusing the Prime Minister of attempting to consolidate dictatorial power.
Netanyahu has proven many times that he is an amoral wannabe dictator—but would he allow a brutal, inhuman attack on his own people in order to achieve it? Yes. He already has. Three months before the attack his own military warned that “nationalist terror” was spurring Palestinians to violence. Nothing was done and Likud mocked it.
Throughout history, when weak leaders have wanted to consolidate power, they create a conflict. This “rallies the troops” to a common purpose, under a strong leader, a strong man—which is how Bibi Netanyahu wants to be seen. He is Israel’s Trump, nothing more.
Six months before the operation that slaughtered a thousand Jews in their homeland, Hamas leadership went to Moscow to visit Vladimir Putim—“as Israel navigates a neutral Russia-Ukraine policy.”
A “neutral” policy on the war on Ukraine is a way of saying Putin and Bibi Netanyahu are allies. Bibi has bent backwards to accommodate the Kremlin’s goals.
Of course this puts the U.S. in an awkward position, because it is strategically critical that we keep Israel close. Until now, we have endured Netanyahu like the world endured Trump. But this is something very differrent.
This war in Israel, has every appearance of being a manufactured flash point.
Zelensky, correctly, accuses Putin of backing Hamas. But as we’ve seen, Putin is also allied with Netanyahu and his Likud Party.
This means that Vladimir Putin is on both sides of the conflict in Israel. Why?
Because a conflict in Israel is the perfect distraction from the war in Ukraine, and Putin and his christofascist allies in the U.S. are happy to watch Jews and Muslims murder each other. Moreover, they are counting on the religious implications of a war in Israel to further radicalize populations to racial holy war.
In End Times mythology, in order for the Rapture to come, Jerusalem must be occupied by Christians. Then Jesus will come, the “saved” will rise to Heaven, and everyone else will be “left behind” to die a bloody death.
The “End Times” rhetoric has been notably rising in the QAnon/MAGA cult for months, along with Mike Flynn’s apocalyptic predictions about “Black Swan” events.
We’re in uncharted waters here. A genocidal imperialist Russian war criminal, a psychopathic American general, and the corrupt Prime Minister of Israel are pushing us towards an apocalypse.
I’m getting very tired of being a character in this horror movie.
These are evil men and they need to be defeated. Time to rise up.
