Israel Hides Crimes Behind Its Smears of Truth-Tellers


• The world’s lone “superpower” not brave enough to stand up to Mideast mini-state?

By Paul Craig Roberts —

Several years ago two very distinguished American scholars wrote a book, The Israel Lobby. The book made a very understated case that the Israel lobby has far more power over the United States government and media than is good for America or Israel, as it silences constructive critics who are Israel’s friends. The two scholars were demonized by the Israel lobby as advocating the return of the Holocaust.

The Israel lobby presented itself as just a poor little weak thing unable to stand up to all the Nazis assailing Israel. Meanwhile, Congress was unanimously passing outrageous resolutions handed to it by the Israel lobby.

A number of former senators and representatives, including Cynthia McKinney, have publicly stated that they were removed from office by the Israel lobby for criticizing actions of the Israeli government, such as the Israeli government’s attempt to sink the USS Liberty, in which many of the American crew were killed or injured.

Instead of defending the Navy, the cowardly U.S. government was so scared of Israel that the president of the United States and the admiral conducting the inquiry, Senator John McCain’s father, rushed to the defense of Israel and covered up the incident.

The coverup has been so successful that few Americans today know that a vessel of the Navy was devastated by an Israeli air and torpedo boat attack, and Washington did not even file a protest. Really! The U.S. is a “superpower,” and the cowardly government cannot even stand up to Israel?

What do you think will happen to these chickenhawks in Washington when they confront by their carelessness and unjustified arrogance the power of Russia and China?

Little wonder that after 15 years of pointless conflict the U.S. has been defeated by a few thousand lightly armed warriors in Afghanistan, and the “Mission Accomplished” pronouncement of the moron George W. Bush now requires intervention by the Russian superpower to be accomplished.

Only Russia can bring the terrorism in the Middle East that the dolts in Washington created to an end. The low-grade morons in Washington sponsor the terrorism in order to bleed the American taxpayer of money to pay the profits of the military-security complex that President Eisenhower, a five-star general, warned us about going on six decades ago.

But it only takes a propaganda invention, a false-flag event, to scare “powerful America” out of its wits.

I became an “anti-Semite” when I observed that Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians resembled the Union Army’s treatment, under Sherman and Sheridan, of the American Plains Indians. Wholesale genocide.

An Israeli official wrote to me asking me why I criticized Israel for doing to the Palestinians what the U.S. government did to the American Indians. In other words, the Western World, and Israel that allegedly suffered the Holocaust, were not required to make any moral progress in one or two centuries. Whatever the Union war criminals did to the American Plains Indians in the 19th century is perfectly OK for Israel to do to Palestinians in the 21st century.

So much for those who believe in moral progress.

“Anti-Semite” has lost its sting, because every justified criticism of the Zionist Israeli government is declared to be anti-Semitism. The word is so overused and misapplied as to be useless. Indeed, to be declared “anti-Semite” by the Israel Lobby is to be declared a person of high moral conscience.


Currently the Israel lobby is at work destroying anyone associated with the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign, which is an effort to sanction Israel for its genocide against Palestine. The popular musician Roger Waters is one of the few brave enough to support this movement.

Waters says that many of his colleagues, who protested the Vietnam War and South Africa apartheid, are too “scared [expletive deleted] of Israel” to protest what former President Jimmy Carter called Israeli apartheid.

Republicans, conservatives, and the Israel lobby do not like Carter because he speaks honestly, but that is why I respect him.

There is no doubt whatsoever that the Palestinians have had their country stolen. Now they, like native Indians in the U.S. in the 19th century, have been confined to ghetto reservations. This is a simple fact. But anyone who states the fact is declared by the Israel lobby to be an anti-Semite who wants to kill all the Jews.

In other words, it is Zionist Israel that is committing genocide, but if a person mentions that fact that person is accused of wanting to do to the Jews what Israel is doing to the Palestinians.

Israel, thanks to the complete cowardice of the government of “the world’s only superpower” and the largely Israeli-controlled U.S. media and entertainment industry, has gotten away with this raw exercise of the power of propaganda and intimidation.

It is amazing to me how courage has disappeared from the entire Western world. Insouciant Americans have lost their liberty to disinformation and fear. Such a fearful and afraid people have no prospect of standing up to the Russian and Chinese people.

The Western world buried in propaganda and lies is now in the trash bin of history. It is no more.

    Kill ALL Jews, NOT one or two.

    The problem is most Europeans are defending Jews. Whether christian(JEWDEO CHRISTIAN) OR left-wing liberal atheists, all “whites” seem to love Jews nowadays.

    Even the MUSLIMS are working on behalf of Jewish interests these days, and of course the blacks have been for quite some time.

    Jews have all the dumb fu*ks working for them; how did they do it? First they dumbed everyone down, and propagandized the intelligence out of them.

    IT, meaning the Jewish plague, only gets worse until Humans (aka non Jews) wake up, organize, and destroy Jews once and for all, NOT HELP THEM LIKE HITLER DID.




    Any issues with that I say? Email me and we can meet up at

    Dr. Roberts has been banned from the MSM which is why the Internet is growing.

    Voltaire said it best:

    “To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.”

    I find it curious how PCR gets away with all this anti-American rhetoric w/o being audited by the IRS or subjected to gov’t and intelligence agency harassment. Maybe he is and we don’t know, but I have my doubts. Why is he so free to rant and rave, to prop up China and Russia without any scars? And Dr. Ben Carson gets audited following his criticism of Obamacare. PCR worked for the gov’t, worked for WSJ—sounds real establishment to me. Why should we believe him or anything he says? Could it be that he’s controlled opposition? I used to be naïve, but there is no way this guy could run free w/o more scrutiny from the puppet masters unless the latter were his bosses. Let’s look at what he writes through new, critical lenses.

    I haven’t seen this article appear on InfoWars but they usually publish all of Paul Craig Roberts’ articles.

    hmmm…. Very curious…

    What difference does any of that mean? The world’s Muslims are doing what Israel done/doing, condemning and attacking everyone and anyone who criticizes them! Muslims are the NEW JEWS!
