And being critical of Israel does not mean you're an anti-Zionist. But a reader did note this 2006 column by Richard Cohen...:The greatest mistake Israel could make at the moment is to forget that Israel itself is a mistake. It is an honest mistake, a well-intentioned mistake, a mistake for which no one is culpable, but the idea of creating a nation of European Jews in an area of Arab Muslims (and some Christians) has produced a century of warfare and terrorism of the sort we are seeing now.[...]That's where the Israelis have lost me and some others. It was revealed first by how petulantly even the Kadima-led government responded to Obama's election. The Gaza war, conceptually defensible, was practically gruesome (Hamas and Israel share that blame), but the unapologetic, almost triumphalist and revengeful manner in which it was conducted and defended was and is shocking, as is the contempt for the wounded and dead on the Mavi Marmara. When your heart is hardened against the corpses of children buried in rubble, it is hardened too much. And the job of a real friend is to point this out, not to enable it.
That wasn't a "triumphalist and revengeful manner," but rather an attempt to cultivate demonic will, i.e. Satanism/SRA, as well as to provoke conflict, as was the "Israeli" terror-spree which marked the beginning of the "Jewish state" and its subsequent 60-year reign of terror. The fact is that the establishment of Israel was intended to accomplish pretty much what has occurred as a result: the impending contrived "Apocalypse," with John Hagee's multitude of dupes cheering it on in the belief that it will require God to fulfill his side of the "contract" and establish Heaven on Earth. The SRA-spree in Gaza and the subsequent siege which has turned Gaza into Hell on Earth, which would make Aleister Crowley proud, is an apt symbol of its intent toward mankind, including most Israelis. However, the utter obliteration of the bodies of some of "Jack the Ripper's" (The Golden Dawn's) victims is a better symbol of this purpose, which Orwell compared to a boot stamping on a human face, forever. It is the Devil's agenda - the Eighth Sphere agenda. Face it: "Israel" was a Nazi project.
