Walls of cold rain and
hale encompassed my Jaffa; streets turned into ferocious streams; snow touched
palm trees and whitened the sidewalks of subtropical Tel Aviv, in violent
counterpoint to the violet skies hanging low, just handbreadth above the
belfries and minarets as hurricane rushed masses of sand and rain clouds
over the deep cleft of the Dead Sea into Palestine. Sandstorm of unheard
of magnitude broke all over the Middle East, stopping American tanks in the
desert, blinding pilots of their planes, covering the crosshairs of their
weapons, threatening to capsize the monstrous battleships in the Gulf. Hundred
armoured troop carriers were savaged by the sandstorm. Such Divine Wind saved
Japan from Mongol landing of Kublai Khan; such storm preserved Elizabethan
England from Spanish occupation.
Like the Spaniards of the Armada on their way to English shores, the Mammonite
force was not prepared to meet this divine intervention. The invaders planned
to enter the soft underbelly of Asia easily and smoothly as dagger of Jack
the Ripper tore defenceless women. No opposition was envisaged. John Wayne
or Burt Lancaster would hand over his spare gun to the weaponless foe before
the fatal shootout; but the Mammonites are not the noble American heroes
of the old Westerns. They were not satisfied with their technical superiority,
with ten to one numerical advantage of the captive American population over
Iraqi people; they demanded to disarm their enemy. The cowards landed only
after the obedient UN obligingly disarmed the Iraqis and smashed their last
They did not expect this supernatural intervention of elements as the Mammonite
power is based, in Dostoyevsky's words, on secret knowledge that there is
no God. But the material world is not dead matter. Everything in this world
is alive and interconnected; our history, our present and future, our visions
and our social structure, sandstorms and hurricanes, earthquakes and revolutions
are part and parcel of the tightly connected trinity of Earth, Man and God.
The will of the people, of billions of men and women opposing the Anglo-American
aggression, was expressed in mammoth demos around the globe, and in the solemn
halls of the United Nations, but it was scorned by the Mammonites. This will
of the people was translated into sandstorms to remind us that our wishes
are as powerful as those of Olympian gods, and integrated will of people
is indeed Vox Dei. By disregarding will of God and Man, the War Party sowed
the seeds of their destruction for they are intoxicated by their Might.
"The strong are never absolutely strong, nor are the weak absolutely weak.
Those who have Might on loan from fate count on it too much and are destroyed.
Might is as pitiless to the man who possesses it (or thinks he does) as it
is to its victims. The second it crushes, the first it intoxicates", wrote
Simone Weil, the French philosopher and divine who witnessed the great intoxication
of Might called World War Two. She referred to the Trojan War, when she extracted
this sublime lesson from the Iliad: "The human race is not divided up, in
the Iliad, into conquered and conquerors. There is no refuge from fate; learn
not to admire Might, not to hate the enemy, not to scorn the vanquished".
This modern saint who was born into a Jewish family, joined Communists, fought
in Spain, worked with the workers of Renault and followed St Teresa into
the Church, Simone Weil recaptured the Trojan War as the tragedy for both
the Greeks and the Trojans for they did not stop when they could. At certain
point, the Greeks could have had 90% of their demands, but they preferred
to risk all and to win all. At different point, the Trojans could have had
90% of their wishes met, but they also choose to risk all. The two parties
suffered, both lost their best men, and victorious Achaeans were defeated
some fifty years later by the invading Dorian wave.
In a similar way, the Nazis went too far in 1939. The world accommodated
some of their demands, for Prague was under German rule for hundreds of years,
and the French control over the Ruhr Valley was not based on law and tradition.
German demand for free unhindered access to Danzig and Königsberg was
not an unreasonable one. Hitler could stop at it and get away with it. 'Appeasement'
was sound politics and reasonable course in 1938. But in 1939-1940 the German
Reich proved its insatiability. Czechoslovakia, Poland, Yugoslavia, Greece,
Denmark — many states were overrun until the world has decided to stop the
Nazi expansion. The dreadful war ruined Europe and Russia, and prepared ground
to the Mammonite accession.
The Zionists went too far. They could have a decent share in the sweet land
of Palestine, willing Palestinian workers and friends, endless supply of
cheap oil and resources from the hinterland to Haifa refineries, very good
life for themselves and their children. But they wanted to have all, and
to leave nothing to the vanquished. That is why their days are numbered.
The Mammonites repeat the errors of Hitler and Sharon. First, Afghanistan.
Nobody could understand why the Mammonites decided to attack this remote
kingdom, but they got away with it, with mass slaughter of prisoners, with
destruction of Afghani livelihood, with unleashing opium production previously
eliminated by Taliban. Now, Iraq. The battle is still undecided, and already
Michael A. Ledeen of AEI (the American Enterprise Institute), a Zionist and
Mammonite (if these twin ideologies can be separated) reminds us, "Iraq is
a battle, not a war. After Baghdad, Tehran, Damascus, Riyadh". And afterwards,
Paris, Berlin, Moscow, Beijing. Today they wish to remove Saddam Hussein;
tomorrow they will demand the head of Chirac, Schroeder and Putin.
They are already demanding full boycott of France and the follow-up action
is on the way. Here is one of the Mammonite ads: "Boycott France because
American lives and security are at stake. France has every right to disagree
with America. But France has moved from simple dissent to active hostility
toward America. French President Chirac warned East European nations that
if they side with America, France will oppose their membership in the European
Union. This week, William Safire reported in the New York Times that
France has been secretly helping to arm Iraq - and has been helping Iraq
build long range missiles. These same missiles may soon be used against American
soldiers". Safire is a leading Zionist Commissar, and his 'report' is a Zionist
fatwa against France and its President. In the report of the warmongers'
get-together, this plan is unveiled: "Kristol urged that we split Germany
off from France but noted that such "intelligent diplomacy may be too much
to hope for from the State Department." When Perle declared that "Americans
are not vindictive," Ledeen interrupted to say that, in the case of France,
he certainly hoped we would be".
That is why there is an urgent need to borrow a leaf from the American book.
In 1823, the U.S President James Monroe upheld the Monroe Doctrine in his
annual message to Congress. Declaring that the Old World and New World had
different systems and must remain distinct spheres, Monroe made four basic
points: (1) The United States would not interfere in the internal affairs
of or the wars between European powers; (2) the United States recognized
and would not interfere with existing colonies and dependencies in the Western
Hemisphere; (3) the Western Hemisphere was closed to future colonization;
and (4) any attempt by a European power to oppress or control any nation
in the Western Hemisphere would be viewed as a hostile act against the United
Now it is the right time to proclaim the fully symmetric Eurasian Doctrine.
Let the US stay away from the Old World of Eurasia, and stop its attempts
to oppress or control any nation in Eurasia. Britain should decide whether
it intends to act as a Trojan Horse, in apt words of de Gaulle, or sincerely
join Europe. Iraq, or any other country in Eurasia, is not open for American
colonisation. The free nations of Eurasia, led by France, Germany, Russia
and China should condemn the Mammonite aggression in the UN and call for
sanctions against aggressor. The US dollar should cease to be the reserve
currency, and the US debt of $ 6.4 T (trillion) should be called in. The
US-owned media, the tool of indoctrination, should be treated as racist propaganda
for it sanctified killing of Arabs. The US forces should leave Eurasia and
peace restored in the interests of all sides.
The unjust sanctions against the noble people of Iraq should be lifted immediately.
These sanctions caused death of millions of innocents, including a million
of Iraqi children. They prepared ground for the Mammonite aggression. The
terrible campaign of demonisation carried out by Mammonite media against
Saddam Hussein, Iraqis and Arabs in general should be denounced as racist
Saddam Hussein is not a Santa Claus or St Francis. He is not a gentle king-philosopher,
but President Allende of Chile was the most liberal and progressive ruler,
and still he was overthrown and assassinated by the CIA-sponsored General
Pinochet, this great friend of Zionist Mammonites Margaret Thatcher, Henry
Kissinger and Conrad Black. Liberal and progressive Prime Minister of Iran
Mohamed Mossadegh was overthrown as well and replaced by the authoritarian
rule of the Shah. Saddam Hussein was brought into being by the very spirit
of the Arab world as its defender, for a civilisation (in Toynbeean sense)
meeting a lethal challenge produces stern and warlike leaders able to meet
When Russia was to be attacked by the most cruel and dangerous enemy of its
history, Russia's spirit brought forth a Georgian defrocked priest and made
him the ruler of the Soviet Union. A kinder, softer man would not be able
to sacrifice millions of Russians (including his own son) and defeat the
The Arab world was mismanaged for centuries by outside powers; by Ottoman
Turks, by the colonialists, and now by the Mammonite neo-colonial web. Saddam
Hussein is the first strong independent ruler of Arabs since Saladin; it
is not a blind coincidence he was born in Tikrit, the city that gave birth
to the noble vanquisher of Crusaders. He could unite the Arab world and restore
the Caliphate — like de Gaulle and Adenauer restored the Carolingian Empire.
It has to be done as the present parcellation of the Arab lands created a
string of rich sheiks, protected oil wells and impoverished masses. Saddam
is able to confront Mammonites and Zionists, and that is why he is much loved
by the people of the Middle East.
Saddam is vilified by the Mammonite media, but it only proves he is the right
man in the right place. For whomever they glorify is surely their collaborator.
They loved Mikhail Gorbachev, who demolished the USSR; they love Tony Blair
who turned England into an American colony. John Pilger described it well
in his introduction to the new edition of the great classic of Phillip Knightley,
The First Casualty: "The media could praise the
"miraculously few casualties" in the Gulf War (meaning the few British and
American casualties), while the horror of up to a quarter of a million Iraqis
slaughtered by the US-led forces was consigned to oblivion". Yesterday, cruel
ex-defence minister of Israel, Fuad Ben Eliezer, the murderer of hundreds
of Palestinian civilians, called Saddam Hussein on Israeli TV, 'a fearsome
man'. For me, and for other people of the Middle East, whoever frightens
Ben Eliezer can't be all that bad.
Saddam passed with honours the severe test of war: his people remain loyal
to him and fight the Mammonite aggressor. We should support him in this hour
of doom, like Winston Churchill supported Joseph Stalin. Do not worry: when
the Arab world will regain its independence within the framework of friendly
Eurasia, it will produce kind and gentle rulers, lovers of arts and letters.
American and English soldiers were sent to commit the worst of war crimes,
that of aggression against a sovereign state. But they weren't sent in the
interests of Americans and Englishmen. They were sent to extend the Mammonite
rule all over the Middle East. We do not identify the Mammonites with the
people of America. The Mammonites come and go, while the people remain forever.
Nor should the Europeans repeat the American folly and try to 'liberate'
America. Let Americans free themselves from the Mammonite yoke. It is in
their interests, for the Mammonites are not a forgiving lot. They will not
forgive anybody who stood on their way. They will try to crush the internal
American opposition. They stored all the photos on participants in the anti-war
demos, and they will use them, sooner or later.
The Mammonites are blinded by their sheer power, by their coup of harnessing
America to their master plans. Their lack of compassion was manifested in
Guantanamo, where they cage their unfortunate prisoners. Their Chutzpah was
manifested when they demanded to disarm Iraq and attacked it afterwards,
turning all of us into their unwilling henchmen. Their lack of sincerity
is proven by massive campaign of lies and disinformation. Their godless nature
is seen in their refusal to obey the pastoral instructions of the churches.
Only some Zionist TV preachers support their war.
The Mammonites utilise the Zionist network and mislead the Jews into obedience.
The US Senate started the war by presenting the Jewish state with ten billion
dollars, and in return, "God Bless America", headlined its today edition
a major Israeli newspaper Yediot Aharonot, and its web edition declared
that 'the hearts and prayers of Israelis go out to the US armed forces'.
"Much of the ideological justification and political pressure for war against
Iraq has come from right-wing American Zionists, many of them Jews, closely
allied to Israel's Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and occupying influential
positions both inside and outside the Bush administration. It is a Bush-Sharon
war against Iraq", wrote Patrick Seale, the British observer and expert on
the Middle East. Seale is right — up to a point. The 'left-wing' American
Zionists, many of them Jews, are as guilty of Mammonitis as their right-wing
Bob Norman reports from South Florida: "Robert Wexler has made himself
one of the nation's loudest critics of President Bush. The liberal congressman
attacked Bush on the environment, prescription drugs, corporate scandals,
tax cuts for the rich, and the president's 2000 election tactics. But Wexler
told on TV that war on Iraq is a swell idea. Wexler and several other Jewish
Democrats in Congress, led by Connecticut's Senator Joe Lieberman and a gaggle
of representatives from California and New York, are spoiling for that fight.
And because these same politicians can usually be counted on to anchor the
Democrats' opposition to Bush, they have helped to destroy any hope of the
party's reining in Dick Cheney's dogs of war".
The US and UK Zionists do not endanger their power base by supporting the
war. While their positions in the media are well known, "there are some 15
Jewish soldiers (0.03% of the British invasion force in Iraq) among the 45,000
British fighters currently in action in the U.S.-led campaign, reports
Haaretz. This disparity explains a lot, including
the 'chicken-hawks' label. Their mad ideas include restoration of Greater
Israel from Nile to Euphrates and 'historic revenge' to Babylon for the destruction
of the Temple of Solomon in BC 586, as it was called for by David Ben Gurion,
the founder of Israel. Needless to say, these insane plans are not in the
true interest of Americans or sane majority of Jews.
While rejecting the Mammonite-Zionist covenant, we do not identify the enemy
with a religious or ethnic group. Indeed, many Americans of Jewish origin
stand against the war and against the Mammonites. I do not want to mention
again their precious names for there is no need to distinguish between them
and other good Americans. The enemy is the Mammonite ideology, a weird crossbreed
of the Roman and Hebrew attitudes, in terminology of Simone Weil. She wrote:
"The Romans and Hebrews were much admired and quoted every time one wanted
to justify a crime. For Romans, conquered people were objects of contempt,
and they had no epics, no tragedies. For Hebrews, cruelty to the vanquished
is permissible, indeed indispensable." Simone Weil perceived the Gospels
as the last and brilliant manifestation of the Hellene spirit of the Iliad,
the spirit of compassion that sees humanity of both sides in the war. That
is the spirit the Americans could invoke.
The compassionate and fiercely independent America of Henry Thoreau and Gore
Vidal could and should win its long battle against the Mammonite spirit.
Provided both main parties of the US are infiltrated to equal extent, the
way out lays in giving more — much more — power to the states, while reducing
the Federal government's functions to the US Mail. The best American intellectuals'
magazine, the Harpers' Monthly, recently drew an idyllic picture of
the world, where instead of the monstrous US, some seven or eight states
(California, New England, Texas, the Confederacy etc) occupy the landmass
of the North America between Mexico and Canada. Such smaller (size of France!)
and more manageable states would be able to form meaningful relations between
their people and their landscape, create real and not imaginary communities,
produce art and relate to Man and God.
Americans will be able to live much better, happier and inspired life. For
instance, $ 75B (seventy five billion) America spends on the Iraq war could
provide fifty million Americans with free health care, or six million young
men with university education. Americans will be able to celebrate the Nativity
of Christ, not only 'seasons' at Christmas, and His Resurrection at Easter,
Even the Mammonite spirit of commerce will shake off its destructiveness
when confined to the Big Apple. Who knows, maybe independent New York will
re-create the glory of Venice, this great trading republic, when disengaged
from the huge continent.
Israel, the exclusivist Jewish state, has no place in the free Middle East;
but its inhabitants, adoptive Palestinians of Jewish faith or origin, will
be welcomed and desired citizens of the Palestinian Commonwealth, on a par
with Native Palestinians. Their abilities will help them to lead their common
country to prosperity and equality. Thus, the noble Zionist goal of bringing
Jews back to the home of their ancestors will be accomplished, and the descendents
of Jews elsewhere would be able to forget separatism and blend peacefully
into the nations they live among.
