His Master's Voice

"Prepare for war. Last week I met the Boogie Man, the former head of the Israeli Defence [sic] Forces, General Moshe 'Boogie' Ya'alon, who is preparing the political groundwork for a military attack on Iran's key nuclear facilities," writes recently rambammed (see Rambam Alert!, 17/11/08) Sydney Morning Herald columnist Paul Sheehan (Israeli hawks ready to fly on Iran, 24/11/08).

Of course, you wouldn't know about Sheehan's rambamming because there's nothing anywhere in (or near) his propaganda - sorry - opinion piece to indicate that he's just been on a NSW Jewish Board of Deputies/Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs junket to Israel to meet the Boogie Man and other Israeli Strangeloves, or "warrior-scholars" as Sheehan prefers to call them.

Boogie's message is: "There is no way to stabilise the Middle East today without defeating the Iranian regime... We have to consider killing [Ahmadinejad]." So, this swaggering psychopath - sorry - warrior-scholar with the ridiculous moniker, who's aiming for a cabinet post should the right-wing Likud* come to power in next year's Israeli elections, asserts the untrammeled right of the Middle East's No. 1 Destabiliser to 'stabilise' the Middle East by rolling any other nation that dares lift its head and knocking off its leader. And Sheehan's role in all this Israeli sabre-rattling (accompanied by the absurd Mucci cartoon: a mushroom cloud cradling a missile), is to sell Israel's military madness to the Australian public. It is a mark of the Herald's precipitous decline into irrelevance as a source of informed and critical comment that, while the likes of Sheehan are kept on, real journalists such as Mike Carlton and (soon) Alan Ramsey are cut loose.

[*Sheehan has the nerve to refer to the Likud, ideological heir of revisionist Zionism and the pre-state terrorist Irgun, as "conservative."]

The Australian's opinion editor Rebecca Weisser (in need of no rambamming whatsoever when it comes to amplifying the party line), was also there in Jerusalem (Israeli general ups ante on Iran, 24/11/08) channeling the very same threats from Boogie.

I particularly enjoyed this little gem: "General Ya'alon said a two-pronged approach was necessary to defeat jihadism. 'From top down, using a big stick... From bottom up, using education'." You can add that to your file of pithy Zionist sound-bytes.

Even better, however, came in Weisser's potted bio of Boogie - a reference to the great man's "success in quelling the second Palestinian offensive launched in September 2000."  

Offensive? You do remember the Great Palestinian Offensive of 2000, don't you? How the terrifying might of the Palestinian armed forces, with firepower the likes of which the world had never seen before, was unleashed on the hapless, helpless Israelis who were all but driven into the sea?

Until Boogie Boy turned up to give the Palestinians a bit of stick, that is.

more death & destruction this time in India {again] Muslims against Hindus from the religion of peace people ,no doubt these barbaric attacks against innocent civilians by the barbarians is in support of the Palestinians.
After all we are constantly told that when the Israeli /Arab conflict ends all the religion of peace people will put way their bombs..

Michael said...

Yeah, just like the Hindu barbarians who have killed about 100 Christians in India over the last month or so did it in support of the Palestinians of Bethlehem.

pal ,when those Hindus start flying planes into tall buildings, kidnapping journalists and cutting off their head in front of huge adoring audiences on TV, kill red Cross and UN workers and behave like barbarians and try to bring the west down to their level then you can compare .until then the Islamists and their supporters still win the gold medal..

was that the King David Hotel,the UN official Count Folke Bernadotte,the British embassy in Rome or numerous Red Cross workers murdered or blown up by Zionists in their mad quest to drive the Palestinians from their land that Anon. refered to?

If only the religion of peace warriors would only attack military targets like the King David Hotel British headquarters and if only the religion of peace warriors would call up the intended target and warn them to get out like the Jews did when they called up the British, if only the religion of peace warriors confined their war against the Jews to Israel and their own back yard instead of murdering Jews from sth America to Bombay..The Jews hardly chased their British enemy to the streets of London or attempt to murder their family members or other British nationals..no man I think it's safe to say when we see on the news a terror attack involving the masacre of innocent civilians its unlikely the first suspects we think of are extremist Jews..

"The Jews hardly chased their British enemy to the streets of London or attempt to murder their family members or other British nationals.."

You mean like when they "hardly" sent letter bombs to British civil servants......

Going by your rhetoric and instance or desperation in going back in the past to find equivalent atrocities no doubt you will some how justify the latest act of barbarity the religion of peace warriors in India and argue some how George Bush or the Zionists are to blame everyone expect the culprits and their supporters .

Wasn't Lord Moyne,murdered by Zionists in 1944, a British national?

How far do you want to go back man ,this is 2008, do you want to list the deeds of early Australian settlers against the aborigines or the deeds of the early American settlers against the Indians grow up , at this present time in history the Muslims are destabilizing the world and the present danger we face are from Muslims not Jews , Hindus or Buddhists, some argue extremist Muslims but how do we know which ones support terrorism and which ones carry out terrorism.So far no Australian Islamic Org has come out and condemned the recent Muslim atrocities so we can only presume they don'te have a problem with these type of acts>besides does it make any difference if a minority or a majority kill innocent people in the name of Allah.
Who gives rats arse about all their perceived grievances they keep going on about, if every minority group that had grievances started flying planes into tall buildings where would we be..
