Writing this blog as long as I have, I’ve seen some pretty low blows from the Israeli government. But this one ranks right up there. Those of you old enough remember Ronald Reagan’s arms for hostages deal with the Iranians–now, Israel proposes an arms for refugees exchange. And it stinks to high heaven.
Ynet reports that the government is close to inking a deal with three African states (who are likely Ethiopia, South Sudan, and Uganda) who will take “tens of thousands” of ‘undesirable’ African refugees from Israel in return to Israeli weapons and training. Isn’t that neat and tidy!? Israel gets rids of what MK Miri Regev called a “cancer in its midst” and contributes to the rising tide of mayhem and violence in countries like South Sudan and Eritrea, already beset by instability and civil war.
There was a time back in the 1960s when Israel actually offered aid that was constructive to newly independent African states. Of course, this aid wasn’t done for purely altruistic reasons. Israel also wanted to cozy up to these states because they insulated it from the charge that Israel was oppressing similar types of states in the Middle East. Africa also offered a rich field for Israel’s intelligence operations and satisfied some of its need for raw materials for its military-industrial complex.
This story should be linked to another important one reported yesterday. The Israeli government revealed there are 7,000 registered arms merchants plying Israeli weapons to precisely these sorts of unstable states, making Israel the sixth largest arms merchant in the world. What the government refused to do in response to a court case, was reveal the names of these merchants of death. It claimed that doing so would endanger them and expose them to potential terrorist attacks.
While this possibility is remote, it’s much more likely that these arms dealers would be exposed to the shame and obloquy of the world community. And they should have to face such exposure. Israel and the nations where they ply their trade have the right to know who these people are. While the U.S. goes after the Victor Bout’s of the world, it does little or nothing to reduce the proliferation of Israel’s stable of sophisticated, lethal weaponry. These 7,000 go scott free because Israel is an ally, which Russia isn’t.
Israelis vs. Africans
Israel’s ethnic cleansing not only targets Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza or inside Israel itself.
Also Bedouin in historical 1948 Palestine and occupied territories are targeted too. Treated in the same way 1933 Nazi Germany treated the Roma gypsies. Another silenced ‘holocaust’ Not only, to “make room” for the establishment of a Jewish state, but to expand it by construction of new illegal settlements Israel declared a true war on bedouins, Palestinians. For the sake of the creation of the ‘Jewish Lebensraum” also Africans and all other ‘goyim’ or even Jews protesting these events are being forcible ‘removed’.
Silence by media: Already in 2005 the advisor to Shimon Peres told the US that Negev “development” plan meant “relocation” of 65,000 Bedouin citizens. What this ‘relocation’ in reality means you can behold in a live captured video.
But it does not stop here.
For some time now Israel is increasingly becoming more racist and even fascist against African refugees which are labeled by the Israeli state as ‘infiltrators’. Fences are being build to keep them out and in the meanwhile Israel is the process of creating a detention- and deportation camp which can hold up to 30,000 African people
Throughout ages, similar incitement cost the lives of countless jewish people. Hatred and incitement, intolerance all resulted in persecution of the Jewish people.
The “Never again” and the ” Wir haben es nicht gewusst” apologies of the ignorant world did not work out. At least these ‘moral lessons’ only seem to be valid inside Israel, for the Jewish Israeli.
Did this world forget about Warsaw Ghettos? Dit this world forget how the Jews suffered in the ghetto. Fought, resisted, smuggled to survive deprivation or at least reduce deaths? Maybe this video will open your eyes again. The new silenced 2012 version of Warsaw ghetto one is called Gaza
And the new 2012 version of “WorldWar II Drancy” is now being (ful)filled in the South of Israel. For Africans this time.
To quote a dear friend:
“Jews of Warsaw didn’t resist and die so their children’s children could become gatekeepers of camps filled with Palestinians & Africans”
~ Stanley Cohen
Neither did Jews in Auschwitz and Majdanek not die in gaschambers so their surviving offspring can write this on walls.

Israel proclaiming to be a “Jewish State” and desiring such recognition should be ashamed of itself to continuously as a broken record reiterating and emphasizing the victim-hood of the horrible Holocaust, yet, while deploying one themselves on all others than their own Chosen ones.
Israel, became exactly that what if hated and feared once themselves.
This is 2012. The “Wir haben es nicht gewusst” – “We didn’t know” – “On ne savait pas” is a no go.
Humanity is not a privilege of skintone. Nor a monopoly 1 religion. Morality and responsibility toward fellow human beings should be blind and unconditional. Humanitarian treatment – as it is already a fundamental human right- should be effectuated and encouraged by all.
Those, who think racism and supremacy is a privilege which can be deployed without consequences have no respect for human live to begin with but most important, did not learn from history which has proven such ideologies backfire on the oppressors.
Israel is an apartheid state. This world ended Nazism. This world ended Apartheid. And this world will also end zionism. The zionist government disguising itself as the “jewish state” with self elected chosen people gained it’s ‘demographic majority’ by genocide and expulsion during the 1948 Nakba. Now pushing through with all policies to regain the majority and evict all which do not serve it’s agenda.
This quest of Israel for dominion of demographic majority becomes very clear by the appalling incitement in the video by David Sheen: “Goldstein Dawn” displayed below.

I urge anyone, to behold the video below and to share it widely to expose the Israeli treatment of those haunted by persecution in Israel. Asylum seekers, Africans, Palestinians.
Literally anyone, opposing the zionist scheme is targeted. While all are being used (even neo nazis and holocaust deniers) by the regime. For as long as they are of use of course)
You should know… that even Jewish people serving a conscience, fighting for a real ‘Tikun Olam’ and those in favor of peace and co-existence are banned, barred, violated and even tortured. Behold of what has become of ‘Israel’. How the inhumane persecuted became the inhumane persecutors.
For updates I recommend you follow David Sheen on twitter, who is doing tireless efforts to keep all informed about the facts and events concerning the plight of the African refugees.
