The above list of headlines was taken from the al Jazeerah front page today. If you read each headline carefully they seem to form a pattern! (please take the time to visit Special Links, go to al Jazzerah, and read each article in full - they're very illuminating).
What suddenly struck me about these headlines was the clear relationship between what the Americans are now doing in Iraq (and are preparing to do in Iran) with what the Israelis have been doing for forty years in the Palestinian Territories.
It's as if, by osmosis, over decades, the imperialism and brutality of militaristic Israel in the Middle East has floated across the ocean to the United States; as if the little, sly Teacher has said to the big, dumb Student: This Is How The Game Is Played, Goyim, Follow us!
But then, if it's simply a game of 'Follow the Leader' then any militarily-strong country, if it wants something like oil or land belonging to another people or simply doesn't like another nation, it can and should ignore all human rights conventions and international law and just go for it! Invade and occupy to your heart's content. If you're criticized, you simply claim that 'It's disputed territory,' or 'We feared attack,' or 'They might get the same nuclear weapons that we have one day.'
Sorry, I made a mistake. It's not ANY country! Silly me. Only selected countries can do this. Predominately Christian and Jewish countries.
In fact, more correctly, only Christian and Jewish Countries called America and Israel!
