Israel is a Lying, Rogue Nuclear State Enabled by the
Lying, Rogue United States
Israel is a lying, rogue nuclear state enabled by the lying,
rogue United States.
June 9, 6:46 AMLA County Nonpartisan ExaminerCarl Herman
We hold these Truths to be self-evident...
Israel was accepted as a member of the United Nations (UN) in 1948 contingent upon their acceptance of UN Security Council (UNSC) Resolution 194, which included:
11. Resolves that the refugees wishing to return to their homes and live at peace with their neighbours should be permitted to do so at the earliest practicable date, and that compensation should be paid for the property of those choosing not to return and for loss of or damage to property which, under principles of international law or in equity, should be made good by the Governments or authorities responsible;
Israel has never fulfilled this condition.
Moreover, UN General Assembly Resolution 3236 requires Israel to allow Palestinians self-government:
Reaffirms the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people in Palestine, including:
(a) The right to self-determination without external interference;
(b) The right to national independence and sovereignty;
Reaffirms also the inalienable right of the Palestinians to return to their homes and property from which they have been displaced and uprooted, and calls for their return;
Emphasizes that full respect for and the realization of these inalienable rights of the Palestinian people are indispensable for the solution of the question of Palestine;
Self-government makes a blockade of land and sea by Israel onto Gaza unlawful, and the boarding of international ships in international waters an Act of War against Palestine and those nations flying those ships’ flags; including the United States of America.
After 60+ years of Israel failing to deliver its conditions for UN membership, the obvious lawful response is to revoke Israel’s membership and have the UNSC address what to do about Israel’s condition as a rogue nuclear state practicing murderous apartheid against Palestinians.
This, however, will not happen. Israel has a history of rejecting UNSC Resolutions; over 50 by this count. This places Israel in violation of the one area of UN jurisdiction, international security, almost once a year for their entire existence.
In addition, the US has vetoed over 40 UNSC Resolutions against Israel; each time as the only vote. The US is engaged in its own unlawful wars, as the facts make clear in “emperor has no clothes" obvious conclusion proven beyond any doubt in these two papers:
Academic and professional: “Open proposal to higher education”
Citizen and passionate for justice: “Government by dicts”
These papers also document that the US conspires with Israel for expanded unlawful war in Iran; all based upon Orwellian lies that a few moments’ inspection of the facts reveal. They also document that these lies are backed by official US policy for first-strike use of nuclear weapons against Iran.
Please try to embrace facts and not empty rhetoric in this area; just as you do in all other areas of competence. I stake my professional reputation on this objective and independently verifiable evidence. You are obligated to view and understand the evidence before you qualify to affirm or refute it. Please work in reality here. Facts do speak for themselves, if you let them.
The objective data in these two papers demonstrate the US government has murderously broken their contract with the American public of the limits of government set in the US Constitution. When all the US public gets is escalating violations of our most sacred rights and laws that high school students are taught to recognize, the rational response of the US public is to withdraw our support of that government. US soldiers and all government employees have an Oath to defend and support the US Constitution, which includes arrest of those issuing orders for its violation.
As these papers emphasize, I’m a leading advocate for Truth and Reconciliation: an exchange of full truth and return of stolen public assets for no prosecution. I don’t imagine an alternative effective response when both parties’ “leadership” is so deeply criminal. The most expeditious strategy is to drive a political and legal wedge between those souls willing to help the public with a “Scrooge conversion” from the monsters committed to tyranny.
Our global condition of a rogue Israel enabled by a rogue United States, with no visible governance to protect humanity from the scourge of war, places us in a Catch-22 position of having to re-invent the UN. The facts demonstrate current “leadership” as having other interests than preventing Wars of Aggression, War Crimes, and mass-murders with anything other than empty rhetoric.
I’ve written about the unlawful collective punishment of Gaza by Israel, with UN documentation of the semi-starvation of their children, and pointed to other journalists’ outstanding reporting.
Today, I point to Joshua Holland’s poignant work: 7 Questions for Defenders of Israel's Inhumane Siege of Gaza. Josh makes the case that Israel’s national security is not under attack by forbidding the 1.5 million people of Gaza food and medicine. Israel destroyed Gaza power plants, sewage treatment plants, water plants, hospitals, medical clinics, schools, apartments, and forbids Gaza receiving building materials. Israel even prevents Gaza exports. Those acts against civilians are, of course, Orwellian unlawful.
Here is a partial list of forbidden items for Gaza by Israel for your consideration; in poetic form.
POEM : « What is not allowed »
No tinned meat is allowed, no tomato paste,
no clothing, no shoes, no notebooks.
These will be stored in our warehouses at Kerem Shalom
until further notice.
Bananas, apples, and persimmons are allowed into Gaza,
peaches and dates, and now macaroni
(after the American Senator’s visit).
These are vital for daily sustenance.
But no apricots, no plums, no grapes, no avocados, no jam.
These are luxuries and are not allowed.
Paper for textbooks is not allowed.
The terrorists could use it to print seditious material.
And why do you need textbooks
now that your schools are rubble?
No steel is allowed, no building supplies, no plastic pipe.
These the terrorists could use to launch rockets
Pumpkins and carrots you may have,
but no delicacies,
no cherries, no pomegranates, no watermelon, no onions,
We have a list of three dozen items that are allowed,
but we are not obliged to disclose its contents.
This is the decision arrived at
by Colonel Levi, Colonel Rosenzweig, and Colonel Segal.
‘No prosperity, no development, no humanitarian crisis.’
You may fish in the Mediterranean,
but only as far as three km from shore.
Beyond that and we open fire.
It is a great pity the waters are polluted –
twenty million gallons of raw sewage dumped into the sea every day
is the figure given.
Our rockets struck the sewage treatments plants,
and at this point spare parts to repair them are not allowed.
As long as Hamas threatens us,
no cement is allowed, no glass, no medical equipment.
We are watching you from our pilotless drones
as you cook your sparse meals over open fires
and bed down
in the ruins of houses destroyed by tank shells.
And if your children can’t sleep,
missing the ones who were killed in our incursion,
or cry out in the night, or wet their beds
in your makeshift refugee tents,
or scream, feeling pain in their amputated limbs –
that’s the price you pay for harbouring terrorists.
God gave us this land.
A land without a people for a people without a land.

Comments policy: I present a professional level of discourse based on facts. I welcome questions and comments that are civil and pertain to the article topic. Here, readers are welcome to argue for any inaccuracy of factual claim and/or need for inclusion of other facts. Readers are welcome to interpret facts however they wish and welcome to any policy position. They are not welcome to misrepresent facts. Facts are objective, measurable, and independently verifiable.
That is how freedom looks. Freedom is not an allowance of whatever, whenever, however. We censor behavior of drivers beyond strict limits, censor many behaviors as fouls and out-of-bounds in sports. We censor people in relationships and business from certain acts, and can fire them upon violation. You censor in your place of business those who distract and/or damage your work. You fire destructive people from relationships, and would never invest your time or money for a sport that did not strictly censor behavior.
Our government is paradoxically based on censorship: “deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed” means any behavior outside constitutional limits is forbidden. This is the paradox of freedom: freedom is only realized within limits.
In these articles, I write for the highest level of factual accuracy and will manage comments with that commitment. Comments and questions are welcome ONLY from those who chose factual integrity.
Please consider that I’m among hundreds of writers who have documented our own government’s disclosure of propaganda programs to support their wars. My articles are subject to such propagandistic attack from comments that use typical rhetorical fallacies to distract readers from the facts. I invite readers to sharpen their ability to discern such propaganda. They are characterized by a combination of: denying facts without evidence, ignoring key facts in lies of omission, lying about verifiable facts as lies of commission, diverting attention through unsubstantiated belief in an alleged expert, irrelevant data, straw-man attack that distorts the facts, ad hominem attack of insults to the messenger, vile comments to repulse readers, and focus on minutia.
I will use such comments to point-out the propaganda or delete them at my discretion. Again, all relevant and polite questions, and factually accurate comments are welcome. And again, all non-factual comments described above are also subject to immediate deletion.
As a professional educator I’m in agreement with my experience and research: we learn best from multiple perspectives in mutual commitment to understand the facts, see those facts from diverse points-of-view, and consider various policy proposals of what we should do. But professional factual discourse always rejects non-factual propaganda.
A predictable line of propaganda to fallaciously attack my documented facts is to call them “un-American.” This is Orwellian-absurd, as America is literally the support of the ideal of unalienable rights and the US Constitution, which my work proves are disgracefully destroyed by current political and economic US “leadership.” Indeed, the US was founded by our Fathers who took such a stand against their subjugation by the British and passionately wrote for future generations of Americans to defend their rights against such propaganda to surrender their freedom. I will point to readers to consider the advice of our Founding Fathers upon such predictable propaganda of calling a stand for rule under US law and against “emperor has no clothes” violations of US laws as “treason.”
"But now, after having once and for all put to the test the judgments of men, I here again approach these same questions regarding God and the human mind, and at the same time treat the beginnings of the whole of first philosophy, but in such a way that I have no expectation of approval from the vulgar and no wide audience of readers. Rather, I am an author to none who read these things but those who seriously meditate with me, who have the ability and the desire to withdraw their mind from the senses and at the same time from all prejudices. Such people I know all too well to be few and far between. As to those who do not take care to comprehend the order and series of my reasons but eagerly dispute over single conclusions by themselves, as is the custom for many-those, I say, will derive little benefit from a reading of this treatise; and although perhaps they might find an occasion for quibbling in many spots, still it is not an easy matter for them to raise an objection that is either compelling or worthy of response."
- Rene Descartes, Meditations on First Philosophy, 1641, "Preface to the Reader." This book is usual reading in college philosophy courses today. Descartes is considered the founder of modern philosophy, the founder of analytical geometry (which led to calculus), and a founder of the Scientific Revolution. Descartes was well-known in his age, but highly controversial. His work was condemned by the Roman Catholic Church in 1633, and his books put on the Index of Prohibited Books in 1663. The University of Utrecht condemned his work in 1643, where he had previously taught.
For those involved in support of US government-sponsored disinformation in whatever versions of Operation Mockingbird that are active, I invite you to consider the quality of human relationships you wish to create. National security and a brighter future is not a function of fear, manipulation, and control. Our best security follows cooperation, justice under the law, dignity, and freedom. Working for your best imagined self-expression of virtue may include a unique contribution from the inside of your agency. Public attraction to the stories of Star Wars and the Harry Potter books/movies recognize that our society’s jump to civilized relations for all of us might require support from people within the “dark side” acting as covert agents for building a brighter future. Another option is becoming a whistle-blower; Project Camelot is a popular venue for people in sensitive positions. Ultimately, I recommend a Truth and Reconciliation process to exchange full truth for no prosecution, explained in detail at the link. Please consider the wisdom of your own “Scrooge conversion” to act for the benefit of building a brighter future for all humanity rather than propagandizing for your controlling, manipulating, and loveless “masters’” psychopathic policies of violence and suffering.
“Scrooge was better than his word. He did it all, and infinitely more; and to Tiny Tim, who did not die, he was a second father. He became as good a friend, as good a master, and as good a man, as the good old city knew, or any other good old city, town, or borough, in the good old world. Some people laughed to see the alteration in him, but he let them laugh, and little heeded them; for he was wise enough to know that nothing ever happened on this globe, for good, at which some people did not have their fill of laughter in the outset; and knowing that such as these would be blind anyway, he thought it quite as well that they should wrinkle up their eyes in grins, as have the malady in less attractive forms. His own heart laughed: and that was quite enough for him.”
Los Angeles County: We’re home to 10 million people and are the media capital of the world. If we are to build a brighter future, the broadest picture must be communicated. Los Angelinos will play leading roles in communicating these issues’ importance to all humanity and in context to the economic and security concerns of local communities and families, as I explain above. These issues are ongoing “current events” of literally trillions of our collective dollars that directly effect billions of human beings, around the world who we touch in L.A.’s media market and where so many of us have family and friends, and locally with the per household tax burden for trillions of our collective dollars. Current US wars cost every L.A. County household ~$30,000 to $50,000 in long-term costs; over $100 billion total. To put this in perspective, California’s state budget deficit is $20 billion; the source of unemployment cutbacks and shortages of services. The economic theft to L.A. County is also conservatively in the hundreds of billions; don't believe me, confirm here. The most important impact on our local communities are often the broadest topics.
