JHate: Yes, Hate, but Also Cowardice

 

 
 
 
 
 

Mark Dankof in San Antonio. Summer 2010.

 

 

“You must be on your guard.  You will be handed over to the local councils and flogged in the synagogues.  On account of me you will stand before governors and kings as witnesses to them.  And the gospel must first be preached to all nations.  Whenever you are arrested and brought to trial, do not worry beforehand about what to say.  Just say whatever is given you at the time, for it is not you speaking, but the Holy Spirit.” 

Jesus Christ in the Olivet Discourse, The Gospel of Mark, Chapter 13, Verses 9-11. 

 

     There is now a new site on Word Press, entitled JHate

     The site is aptly named.  It is surely about Hate.

     But the site’s correct description of itself is incomplete.  It is also about  Cowardice.

     Hate and Cowardice have capital letters in this case, for justifiable reasons.

     Browsers need to know that the individual (s) behind this site post anonymously.  They also refuse to post fair and thoughtful comments by those who have been subjected to libelous characterizations and ad hominem attacks.  The most recent victims have been Press TV of Iran, Dr. Paul Sheldon Foote of Cal State Fullerton University, and yours truly.  We have all been tagged with the false, predictable, and shopworn charge of “anti-Semitism.”

     Three succinct observations are in order.  The first comes courtesy of Mark Weber of the Institute of Historical Review.  He aptly notes in a letter to Dr. Foote that, “Being attacked by an outfit like this is a badge of honor. You’re on the right side of history and humanity.”

     The second observation was made to me by Dr. Foote himself, regarding these odious and demonic attacks.  The good professor notes that the character of these baseless assaults clearly indicates that the presence of mainstream American conservative critics of Zionism and Israel on Press TV is having a positive effect for truth around the world generally, and in the United States specifically.  The Hasbara Project crowd at Mossad headquarters predictably doesn’t like it.  The folks who brought you the Sabra and Shatila massacres, the utilization of white phosphorus and depleted uranium shells against civilian populations in the Middle East, the murder of unarmed human rights activists on the Mavi Marmara Freedom Flotilla, and recent terror bombings in Iranian Azerbaijan and Sistan-Balochistan provinces, are now blind siding the critics of these policies on the World Wide Net.

     The third observation is my own.  JHate didn’t publish my letter of response to them.  I would like decent people around the world, including international viewers of Press TV, to see it.  The complete text is as follows:

Mark Dankof to JHate

     It’s nice to know that I am considered to be in the same company as Dr. Paul Sheldon Foote, whose education, professional and military credentials, and basic human decency are beyond dispute. 
 
     As for the predictable charge of “anti-Semitism,” the methodology of demonizing honest critics of Israel’s criminal policies isn’t going to wash this time.  Too many people around the world, thanks to Internet technology, are now aware of Deir Yassin; the bombing of the King David Hotel by Mr. Begin and Company; the Lavon Affair; Israel’s attack on the USS Liberty in June of 1967; and the myriad number of Israeli espionage operations against the United States, including the theft of American nuclear raw materials at Pennsylvania’s NUMEC plant, the PROMIS affair, and the Jonathan Pollard and AIPAC spy scandals. 
 
     As Americans find out what our $10 billion a year “ally” has been up to since 1947, new dawning awareness of the implications of Israel’s policies in Palestine and Gaza is also beginning to invade the American consciousness.  Tolerance of atrocities like the Rachel Corrie murder and the slaughter of innocents on the Mavi Marmara Freedom Flotilla will end.  And as American manpower and money continue to go down the proverbial drain, courtesy of the United States’ assumption of its role as both the chief enforcer of Zionist policies in the Middle East and the developing New World Order globally, patience will also evaporate with the role of the Israeli Lobby in the American domestic political scene. 
 
     As Daniel said to Belshazzar of Babylon, “. . . God has numbered the days of your kingdom and brought it to an end (Daniel 5: 26).”  The perverse and racist ideology of modern Zionism will also come to an end in the Biblical God’s good time.
 
     What may we predict of Israel’s actions as its moral bankruptcy and political unsustainability become progressively more obvious? 
 
     This is an absolute cinch:  Hasbara Project attacks against decent writers, thinkers, and human rights activists on the Internet, coupled with a false flag incident designed to provoke a war with Iran that is totally unjustified, preventable, and in the interest of no one, save the psychotics in the Netanyahu regime.
 
     And Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp will lead the corporate media consortium charge to sell this tragic travesty to the American public.  By way of comparison, I will join Paul Sheldon Foote, Paul Craig Roberts, and George Galloway in appearing on Press TV anytime.
 
     Let’s face it.  You folks are running scared.
 
     I conclude in reiteration:  “. . . God has numbered the days of your kingdom and brought it to an end. (Daniel 5: 26)”

In Christ Jesus,
