“There is a lot of tension in society between the great exploring soul, and the assembly line citizen. . . The grand exploring soul is marginalized as an eccentric, or, if necessary, more seriously marginalized as mad in some way. Madness basically up until the level of physical violence means you are behaving in a way which makes me feel uncomfortable, therefore there’s something wrong with you.” – Terence McKenna, from a talk he gave on September 11, 1993.
The most stupid and racist talking point that is repeated in the Israeli and Western media is that Iran is irrational and cannot be reasoned with other than with the use of force.
It is clear that the Western view of the East hasn’t progressed much since the time of the Greek historian Herodotus, who called the Persians and other races “barbarians” who do not value freedom and have no tolerance for other cultures. History has proven that the popular Western conceptions of Iran and the Eastern world are mistaken and wrong.
At least the Greeks and Romans respected their opponents when they clashed. They were honourable and worthy of victory. The same can’t be said of Israel and America, who cheat and cry to win wars which they start to gain profit and power. The Israeli state has played the victim for so long that the Israeli people truly believe in Israel’s victimhood mythology, and the same is true to a lesser extent of the American people.
Both Israel and America have lost the world’s sympathy because of their aggressive wars and barbaric mass murder of defenseless and innocent human beings. The world witnessed the collapse of the twisted mythologies of Israeli victimhood and American exceptionalism on September 11, 2001. On that day, the machines of American terrorism and Jewish terrorism morphed into one terrorist machine to create a mind-blowing apocalyptic event.
The most insane thing about the world today is that the two most insane nations on Earth – America and Israel – are accusing their victims of insanity for fighting back! A bunch of cold-blooded arrogant demons lead America and Israel and are using them to for destruction. The most disgusting of these creatures is the pig-faced Ehud Barak. His idea of winning a war is crying like a baby in front of the world and calling the other side insane terrorists for resisting aggressive Israeli and Western attacks.
Recently, Barak repeated his baseless charge that Iran is irrational and does not seek peace. Richard Silverstein wrote about it in his article,“IDF Chief Calls Iran “Rational,” Barak Disagrees”:
Israel continued its self-portrait as a government in disarray as its military chief, Benny Gantz called Iran “rational” and said he believed that nation would not build a nuclear weapon (a position fully in accord with U.S. views). The next day, Ehud Barak took pains to divorce himself from his subordinate by saying of Iran:
[Barak] did not see Iran as “rational in the Western sense of the word, meaning people seeking a status quo and the outlines of a solution to problems in a peaceful manner.”
This of course is a delicious bit of irony because most observers of the Israeli-Arab conflict believe precisely this about Israel’s approach. It seeks, not a sustainable status quo, but a status quo that offers it supreme advantage and dominance over its neighbors. Nor does Israel seek solution to these problems in a peaceful manner. It’s saber-rattling toward Iran itself is but one example.
In truth, what Barak is complaining about is that Iran refuses to accede to a dictat set before it by the western powers. If you’re the majority, a resistant minority is always going to appear as ungrateful, even irrational. Because what other reasonable solution is there than the one you maintain? The problem with Israeli policymakers is that they’re beset by a grave case of narcissism, and a profound inability to view matters as their enemy might see them. This is a fatal combination in a region so prone to cataclysm as the Middle East.
Israel’s siege mentality has caused Israel to separate itself from reality. And the same trend is developing in America and the West. Decades ago, the Western oligarchy made the calculation that exaggerating the threat of Radical Islam to Western civilization is the best way to steal the wealth and liberties of the common people. And their calculation proved correct.
The CIA and MI6 created Al-Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, and the Islamic Republic of Iran, and Mossad created Hamas—all to their great benefit. But the countries they claim to serve and protect are suffering and collapsing.
America has gone mad and bankrupt fighting off imaginary Islamic terrorists. It is consuming its own shadows, and self-destructing. Israel has the excuse of being in the Middle East, but America can make no such excuses. The sick leaders in Washington have turned the land of the free into a giant island filled with mentally incarcerated, brain-dead zombies.
But the West and Israel are not the only ones that are mad and crazy. Islam, which has taken hold of the political structures of the East thanks in large part to the clandestine work of Western intelligence agencies, is a mad religion.
Free, peaceful, and thoughtful souls are confronted on all sides by mad men with guns – the Globalists in Washington and London, Zionists in Tel Aviv, and Islamists in Tehran and other capitals. Civilization cannot survive under the pressure of so much barbarism and insanity from governments.
The citizens of all countries must reduce and contain the power of their governments, or else this world will be consumed by madness and terror.
“Many clever men like you have trusted to civilization. Many clever Babylonians, many clever Egyptians, many clever men at the end of Rome. Can you tell me, in a world that is flagrant with the failures of civilisation, what there is particularly immortal about yours?” – G. K. Chesterton.
