Wake up people! Fundamental changes in the value system are urgent.
The German Nazi State had to be abolished. It was.
The Jewish Nazi State must be abolished. It will be.

Each of us is a full human being, a member of the same unique species.
All ethnic separations into “us” and “them” are potentially deadly.
A good world can only be built on love of life, not on hatreds.
There are no “just wars”. All wars are our enemies.
All hierarchies of power are our enemies.
Governments are our enemies.
All religions are our enemies.
Slower is generally better.
We should be working to
Prefer “honest labor” with metabolic energy to using power machinery,
Abolish the “buying and selling” of everything for its “money value”,
End exploiting other people's labor or wasting natural resources,
Replace competition with cooperation, even in many games,
Give up the fetish of modernization and energy infinitum,
See honest, humble labor as necessary and dignified,
Do away with money, banks, and interest.
In summary, let’s aim towards ending
the existence of economically differentiated classes, capitalism,
sexism, racism, slavery, religion, all coercive hierarchies, all
violence, physical and psychologcal torture, excessive
private property not held for essential use

      This appeal is intended for all people, the overwhelming majority of whom are not so-called Jews. But I target as well the English-speaking Jewish people of the “West”, whose ethnic group harbors some of the hyper-wealthy backers of the Israeli Nazi State, and their allies. I myself — of American Jewish heritage — have nothing but utter contempt for the would-be conquerors of Palestine. Jewish people are fundamentally not different from other human beings, neither better nor worse. All people are of a single species. I was already 84 in June 2010, by then my early and ignorant enthusiasm of 1948 for Israel was gone. I am convinced that only a world based on love of life can offer any hope for humanity. There is no such thing as a so-called “just war”. Every child must be regarded as a treasure of humanity, to be loved and respected as a full human being.

      My view of the situation in the “Greater Middle East”, by which I mean to include far more than the inadequately-named “Israel/Palestine conflict”, hinges on the joint U.S.-Israeli (British-assisted) colonial imperial campaign to eradicate Palestine. The entire project to take the land of Palestine for a Jewish state was illegitimate from the start. This project is at the core of Zionism. Being “nice” to the Palestinians, as I’m certain many good and decent (but misguided) Jewish people favor, simply is not a cure for the cancer of conquest. The same for all conquests — of the Americas by Europeans and so on.

      The northern European/American project to retake the Ottoman Empire needs to be scrapped, completely given up. Jewish would-be conquerors of Palestine should be peacefully forced to leave and live elsewhere, as discussed in some detail in a later paper.[1] Conquest is ALWAYS wrong, immoral, unethical and must be rejected. Great Britain was, throughout its imperial dominance, a leading curse of humanity, whose criminal history leaves a terrible legacy. Our task ought to be to clean it up as soon as possible. And of course the other European powers should leave Africa, probably the most despoiled population group in the world. What world-class monsters we so-called Whites have been, imposing “our” anti-civilization on the world.

      One of my recent posts [2] discussed religious dogmas as basic sources of social conflict. That was followed by the note discussing the conflict between the social values associated with money and those of “honest labor”. [3] I chose provocative titles for both papers because I hoped that would attract some additional readers, and also because my starting point for each paper was my own ethnic background. Several other postings, closely related to today’s, are at [4], [5], [6], [7], [8], [9].


NOTES
[1] The ethics of a just solution of the “Palestinian/Israeli” conflict. http://site.www.umb.edu/faculty/salzman_g/t/2010-11-13.htm

[2] Religion as a primary underpinning of ethnic hatreds. That paper, "Why do so many people hate Jews?" - I, is at http://site.www.umb.edu/faculty/salzman_g/t/2010-05-16.htm .

[3] The values associated with money as a basic source of social conflict. That paper, "Why do so many people hate Jews?" - II, is at http://site.www.umb.edu/faculty/salzman_g/t/2010-05-24.htm .

[4] Jews and money — a “special relationship” — ideas on interest and usury. An article in the 1911 edition of the Encyclopædia Britannica on the Rothschild family tells of Mayer Anselm [Rothschild] (1743-1812), the founder of the famous banking family receiving from a wealthy German landgrave, a count of Hesse, silver and other bulky treasures for safekeeping before fleeing the victorious French. Rothschild reportedly buried them in his garden, and dug them up when he could dispose of them, which he did, eventually returning their value plus 5% to the count. The article's author considered that 5% as showing the skill of Rothschild in handling the transactions. The article is posted at http://site.www.umb.edu/faculty/salzman_g/t/2010-05-28-2.htm

[5] History of the conquest. Spurred by a probing interview by Jeffrey Blankfort <jablankfort@earthlink.net> with military historian Geoffrey Wawro, I've ordered a copy of Wawro's lengthy study, Quicksand: America's Pursuit of Power in the Middle East. The interview occupies almost 40 minutes of the hour-long program. Prof. Geoff Waro's book, published by Penguin in 2010, is focussed on US support for Israel, the pro-Israel lobby and whether Israel is a strategic asset or liability. To hear the interview, http://www.radio4all.net/index.php/program/42979
