[Marxism] "They" are at it again

(Swans - March 13, 2006)  THEY ARE AT IT AGAIN. According to the story 
line in some quarters, right and left, not only did Israelis foment 9/11 
or knew about the attack and kept silent, but they then incited the U.S. 
to launch Gulf War II on their behalf. Now, the story goes, the USA is 
readying its formidable military forces to launch "Another War for 
Israel," this time against Iran. That is, of course, if you believe and 
religiously follow the Paleolithic nutcracker at Antiwar.com. Israelis, 
with their fifth column (the Jewish lobby), truth be told, control the US 
government, the world, and even the heavens. Remember, in this crowd, Mr. 
Bush cozily resides in Ariel Sharon's pocket as in lies, vegetable-like, 
in a hospital. 

JOINING THE FRAY, self-defined leftist radicals don't miss a chance to 
concur in seeing Israeli hidden hands and dirty tricks behind another 
crisis, that of the racist caricatures published by the Danish 
reactionary publication, Jyllands-Posten. In short, according to the 
authors of "The Caricatures in Middle East Politics," the publication of 
these xenophobic caricatures was a covert operation concocted by Mossad, 
the Israeli secret service, "to silence [Iraq] war critics and heighten 
animosities to the Islamists/Arabs in general and Iran in particular." 
Then the plot thickens. As the "initial response from the Islamic 
countries however was limited," the Mossad unleashed its trump card, the 
sayanim: "By early January 2006, Mossad 'Katsas' (Hebrew for case 
officers) activated sayanim (volunteer Jewish collaborators outside of 
Israel) throughout Western and Eastern European media to simultaneously 
reproduce the cartoons on Feb. 1 and 2, 1006 [sic]." And this, friends, 
"rapidly provoked the subsequent massive escalation, doubtlessly aided by 
covert Mossad operatives among Arab populations." 

FUNNY ME, who had thought that the republications of these caricatures in 
mostly European media were a direct reaction to the moderately violent, 
or intense (compared to Fallujah, Abu Ghraib, etc.), demonstrations in 
various Middle Eastern countries -- that is, the republications occurred 
after the fire had started, not before. But, hey, what do I know about 
timelines and how can one dispute the bona fide and deep insights of a 
"genuine revolutionary" such as James Petras? 

LET'S SUMMARIZE: Maybe "they" knew, or maybe "they" did it (9/11). On 
"their" behalf, the USA and their British lackeys invaded and occupied 
Iraq, and "they" manipulated the US and British governments to do so 
through lies and disinformation. "They" are now driving the U.S. to 
attack Iran, on "their" behalf again. Perhaps it'll begin with UN 
sanctions obligingly voted for by France and England (funny again, I 
thought the Europeans in their majority were highly critical of, and 
opposed to, "their" treatment of the Palestinians in the Occupied 
Territories -- but then, once more, what do I know?), but "they" will 
manage, after an oh-so-unmistakable campaign by "their" human assets (the 
sayanim) to get the U.S. to nuke Iran. And, as always, the Western media 
marches along the lines "they" draw. 

MY, MY, MY, has Swans been infiltrated and subjugated by a sayan, too? -- 
you know, this "huge world-wide network of Jews in strategic or useful 
places (real estate, mass media, finance, car dealerships etc...)" (cf. 
Petras, et al.) It would be funny, almost laughable, like those 
caricatures -- ha, ha, ha, let's drink another one... -- if it were not 
so detrimental to those of us who are highly critical of Israel's 
appalling treatment of the Palestinians, and who genuinely struggle to 
find a rational and reasonable outcome to this tragedy (the two-state 

Robertson and the fundies out there. You people.... err, don't let me get 
personal here... These people, regurgitating several centuries of 
Judeophobia, at an historical time when anti-Semitism is relatively bland 
and low, do a tremendous disservice to the cause of peace and justice 
with their recurring fifth column allegations. Perhaps they need a 
refresher course and should go browse the Working Definition of Anti-
Semitism (PDF file) that the European Monitoring Centre on Racism and 
Xenophobia (EUMC) of the European Union developed in 2005. Among various 
definitions, and in relation to the "sayanim," they'll read: "Accusing 
Jewish citizens of being more loyal to Israel, or to the alleged 
priorities of Jews worldwide, than to the interests of their own 
nations." Or, who knows, they'd rather keep that kind of filthy company --
 just one example of the many sites out there that peddle this type of
