Lest we forget history. Again.
[ahmadinejad1] In case you haven’t heard, the Islamic Republic of Iran has begun a new PR (counter-) campaign, reaching out to campuses across North America in attempt to sift reality from propagated negative images and activism against the country, a campaign which itself has gained considerable momentum over recent years. Campuses are being targeted, in particular, as much of the activist work against the Republic has been growing on campuses across North America- film screenings, panel discussions and lectures are springing up across the northern part of the continent, all of which highlight the impending existential threat Iran poses to the so-called Free World, consisting primarily of the United States and Israel.
The world knew, however, even before 1975, that anti-Zionism is not anti-Semitism.
But politicians are cheap, and there is no indication that Zionist bank accounts, which include the three most powerful industries (petroleum, technology, and weapons manufacturing), are going to run out any time soon.
It’s not that Zionist Jews control the world, but that the global financial/economic impact from the Zionist project is too important for the class of profiteers, including Jews, Arabs, and anyone else in Uncle Sam’s orbit.
Zionist leaders have resorted to their dirtiest (and probably last) card in their deck: to turn the Zionist, Jewish, and Israeli identities into synonyms.
By insisting to refer to themselves as Jews, they turned every criticism against Israel or Zionism into criticism against world Jewry, and thus anti-Zionism became synonymous with anti-Semitism.
Google will be employing additional staff to review content before and after it goes live on Youtube, Google CEO Eric Schmidt said recently. This came after the company moved to remove al-Qaeda videos, including some by Yemeni-American preacher Anwar Al-Awlaki.
Enjoy this video – not necessarily just for the dramatically delivered punchline (although there’s nothing quite as endearing as a two year old with such strong political opinions) but also for just the fact that this kid knows more world capitals than not only the vast majority of North Americans ..but also those running our countries.
Aljazeera English’s great program about media, The Listening Post, contrasts Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s media blitz in New York with repression of media back at home. Several interview guests point out that the American media stars who interview him fail to ask about the jailed journalists and bloggers. Iran, the report points out, is one of the leading jailers of journalists in the world.
