Once upon a time, in the bad old days when there was still racism in America–before Barack Obama was annointed to cleanse us of our sins–there was a crime called Driving While Black (DWB). African-Americans used to get pulled over all the time for DWB. Naturally, in our own enlightened era, this sort of thing could never happen.
Today, the worst crime you can commit is DWI: (self-)Defending While Islamic. This crime is better known as “terrorism.” For some reason, when Jewish Zionist coup d’etat plotters with such names as Larry Silverstein, Benjamin Netanyahu, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, Douglas Feith, Philip Zelikow, and so on blew up the World Trade Center, bombed the Pentagon, and ineptly attempted to frame Osama Bin Laden, the U.S. decided to cozy up to the Zionists and attack their enemies, the Muslims, rather than the other way around.
Today, any Muslim who dares to defend him- or herself, or his or her family and community, is in danger of getting busted for DWI and shipped directly to one of the dozens of secret prisons in the sex torture gulag that will remain open under the new Obama-Emmanuel post-Guantanamo dispensation.
Today, anyone who openly supports Hamas and Hezbullah might as well be pinning a “kick me” sign on the seat of their pants and bending over for the Homeland Security jackboot.
Well, as far as I am concerned, Homeland Security can take that jackboot and stick it where the sun don’t shine. I like Hamas and Hezbullah, and I don’t care who knows it.
Hamas and Hezbullah are primarily charitable organizations. They do a terrific job of providing basic necessities to the poor. And when the need arises, they help organize armed community self-defense.
Today, the entire Middle East is desperately in need of armed community self-defense. A gang of genocidal lunatics, otherwise known as Zionists, has already invaded, occupied, and ethnic-cleansed Palestine, and they are intent on extending their reign of terror to the whole Middle Eastern heartland.
Don’t believe me? Take a look at the Israeli flag. See those two blue stripes, one on each side of the star of David? One stripe is the Nile, the other the Euphrates. The Zionist nutballs believe that a genocidal god named Yahwe promised them this entire stretch of land. Sort of like David “Son of Sam” Berserkowitz, these people are hearing hallucinatory voices telling them to engage in mass murder.
What’s worse, the Zionist psychos possess several hundred nuclear weapons and delivery systems, in violation of all relevant international laws and treaties. Unlike Iran, they have never signed, much less abided by, the International Anti-Proliferation Treaty.
The Zionist entity, sometimes euphemistically called “Israel,” is the biggest international criminal syndicate on earth. It has violated more international laws and U.N. resolutions than all the legitimate nations on earth combined. It sanctions the murder of children by uniformed snipers, who pick off the kids one by one, for the sheer joy of it, while the children are playing in schoolyards, walking on sidewalks, or (occasionally) hurling rocks at their tormentors. A study by the British Medical Journal found more than six hundred such cases of Israeli snipers cold-bloodedly murdering children who posed “little or no threat.” If you have trouble believing this, read the article “Gaza Diary” by journalist Chris Hedges, who left the New York Times at about the same time he started telling the truth about what was going on in Palestine. In “Gaza Diary,” Hedges describes watching Israeli soldiers luring children within range of their guns, then shooting them for sport–a common occurrence in Occupied Palestine.
What would you do if genocidal nutballs from across the sea invaded and occupied your country and started sport-shooting your kids? I know what I would do. I would defend myself and my family and my community.
That’s exactly what Hamas and Hezbullah are doing. These organizations are not at war with America — they are at war with Zionism. Under international law, they have the right to engage in armed self-defense against occupation. They deserve your support, and the support of all other sane, decent human beings.
