Brave Israeli Soldier Speaks Out On BBC Against the Crimes of His Government
4.3 · 2

Brave Israeli Soldier, Yonatan Shapira, speaks out about the crimes of his government on BCC news.

Read the blog "The Dark History of Modern Day Zionism" for more context on what he is speaking about below:

Theodor Herzl in Basel, 1897.
Known as "the father of Zionism" Herzl was a Jewish Austro-Hungarian journalist who wrote "Der Judenstaat" (The Jewish State) in 1896 which proposed the establishment of a Jewish homeland in Palestine (modern day Israel) to avoid growing prejudice toward Jews in Europe.

The pamphlet (later published as a book) gained widespread attention, which included the support of a Christian reverend named William Hechler (known as the first "Christian Zionist") who believed "the second coming of Christ" depended on the Jews return to "their" homeland.

Hechler was well connected and managed to introduce Herzl  to German royalty, which although did not gain him access or promise to a future homeland for the Jews, it did serve its purpose in gaining more support amongst the public for the cause of Zionism, which is to say the movement for the establishment of a Jewish homeland. Although this cause seems noble enough on the surface, as you continue to read you will find it is much more questionable than what we have been led to believe to say the least.

Herzl and his affiliates were offered Uganda by the British [1] and even Mesopotamia by the sultan [2] of the Ottoman empire (Middle East Turkish empire) but turned them down. Of course, we could argue these options were turned down by Herzl because Palestine is the "Holy land" from which he and his supporters feel entitled based on an ancient "promise" in the Bible. This argument, however popular it may be, is simply not accurate. According to Herzls own words written in his diary whilst seeking financial support from the powerhouse banking family of the Rothschilds, "I can only use this... Sinai peninsula, Egyptian Palestine. Cyprus." Herzl then asked  Lord Rothschild "Are you for it?" who in turn grinned and answered "very much." [3] From this we quickly learn that it is not the "promised land" Herzl and his affiliates are after but an area,  presumably one of geostrategic importance and judging by the money minded Lord Rothschilds response, rich in natural resources.

But what could this of been about then if it is not the "promised land"? According to Colonel Curtis Dall, author of "Israel's Five Trillion Dollar Secret" as well former employee of Wall streets Lehman Bros. banking firm and son in law of former president Franklin D. Roosevelt;
 

"The well veiled objective of the Zionists backed by the Rothschilds financial interests was to acquire valid title to the Dead sea and its vast, inexhaustible deposits of potash and other valuable minerals, estimated by experts to be worth several thousand billion dollars."[4]


While there is no way to confirm if this really was their true objective, it was reported back in August 27, 1927  by "the Evening tribune" under the title "Dead sea to yield trillion in riches" that a

"technical report of the Dead sea minerals gives the following estimate of contents and values. Potash: $70, 000,000,000; Bromide: $260,000,000,000; Salt $17,000,000,000; Gypsum: $120,000,000,000; Magnesium chloride: $523,000,000,000." [5]
Actual News Article which can be viewed here http://news.google.com/newspapers?id=iT1hAAAAIBAJ&sjid=ZGMNAAAAIBAJ&pg=3409,6781746&dq=dead+sea+to+yield+trillion+in+riches&hl=en



 This assessment, according to the Evening tribune was made by "skilled geologists" after General Edmund Allenby captured Jerusalem in December 1917. In addition to these findings it was reported by "Popular Science" in Septemeber of 1929 that Dr. Georges Claude discovered $50,000,000,000 worth of gold contained in the dead sea.[6] It is also worth mentioning that the Rothschilds had their agents on the ground long before any of those assessments were conducted [7] and when one considers the banking families legendary "know how" of staying 2 steps ahead of everyone, it is not so far fetched to imagine they were well aware of this in advance. It is also interesting that Herzl at first was met with resistance by the House of Rothschild, this as we know now changed, perhaps due to Herzls persistence and gain in public support, thus proving himself a useful instrument.

Irrespective of the information presented here advocates of Zionism often claim that Israel or "the promised land" historically belong to the Jewish people. This belief, however popular, is once again inaccurate. According to the Bible, the document from which these claims emanate, Abram/Abraham, the reputed father of Issac (Israel), was born in Ur Kasdim in Mesopotamia (modern day Iraq), not Canaan (today Israel). [8]

According to the author of Genesis (a topic of dispute amongst historians as there is compelling evidence that suggests Moses was not the actual author) Abram was told by his god that the land of Canaan was to be given to his descendants. What is mentioned later, however, is by "given" the authors god actually meant taking through the use of brute force and terrorism.

"However, in the cities of the nations the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes. Completely destroythem—the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites—as the Lord your God has commanded you."[Deuteronomy 20:16-17 ]


The writers claims, if viewed objectively and free of religious conviction, amount to the work of a propaganda specialist justifying imperialism. This is especially true if the author really is Moses, who was Jewish.To believe in a god that calls for the genocide of a people and the murder of innocent children and babies [1 Samuel 15:2-3] sounds much more like the product of the mind of a warmonger of those times than that of a divine Being with everlasting mercy. [Psalm 100:5] Yet despite simple logic, morality and reason this tale has been repeatedly used by those less informed to justify the illegal takeover of Palestine which continues to this day. Because I pride myself, however, in having an open mind and talking to people in "their language", I say to those of religious conviction to consider the words written in Revelations 2:9  which are reportedly Jesus'

 "I know your afflictions and your poverty--yet you are rich! I know the slander of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan."


Whatever you may believe, please consider what has been presented before you from an objective and detached perspective. Imagine there are no flags involved, skin colors, religions, etc. just ethics and morality guided by that moral compass we all presumably have deep within.

This, however, is not where the troubles between Israelis and Palestinians began but instead can be traced to the shady dealings of the British imperialists who, in pursuit of victory through different alliances in WW1, both promised the Arabs the land of Palestine (through "Lawrence of Arabia" who was so ashamed of these deliberate lies became suicidal according to his own diary  and the McMahon - Hussein agreement) and the Zionists through the Balfour declaration (which is another story in its own right, one that will have enormous ramifications on propagated history).

The Balfour declaration addressed to Lord Rothschild.



This is where the roots of the conflict today can be traced. This, however, does not even begin to scratch the surface on the terrorism that has been used on the Palestinian population to remove them from their homeland. I leave you with a documentary made by a former Israeli soldier that documents the history of the crimes against the Palestinian people and will also demonstrate that the terrorism, which is so often reported by mainstream media on the Palestinian side is simply blowback and the result of a much more sinister root cause.

 



In conclusion I would like to add that the average Israeli citizen is not necessarily a party to these crimes nor is the average Jew. They have simply been manipulated through propaganda to believe they are the "good guys" and the outside world doesn't understand (which is partly true). Throughout history it has always been the actions of the elite to blame an entire people, which only serves to reinforce the divides which allow us to be so easily manipulated and ruled over. Awareness is the key, along with understanding and cooperation because as cliche as it may sound. united we stand, divided we fall. The average  person is a moral human being and Israelis are no exception here. But, just as it was so in South Africa during apartheid, the elites propagate an entirely different world view and dehumanize the opposition. As the saying goes, "He who controls the present, controls the past. He who controls the past, controls the future."

Make no mistake about it my friends mankind is on the verge of the greatest conflict of all time and that conflict is not between races nor religions but between the elite and the rest of us. The question is what are you doing in the present to help change the future? If not you then who, if not now then when?
