COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY PHILIP GIRALDI IN RUSSIA INSIDER

Mike Pence – A Whack-Job Bought and Paid for By Israel
An important article about the disastrous influence of ‘Christian Zionism’ and its Jewish promoters, on American foreign policy

A suitably bitter piece for this most ridiculous attitude of American politicians such as Pence.

It is a bizarre and dangerous situation, blurring and conflating stuff from ancient manuscripts – none of which contain any facts worth talking about and half of which may well have been written by mentally disturbed recluses or fanatics living in caves – with 21st century global imperialism and nuclear weapons.

There is something deeply disturbing, too, about senior politicians from the world’s most powerful nation regularly deferring to the handful of political extremists called the government of Israel. The religious manuscript stuff is used like wallpaper to cover and “pretty up” the workings of some truly ruthless men whose real concerns are about dominating others.

It remains an extremely dangerous relationship.

I don’t know how sincere Pence is, but of course many of the Americans doing what he does are not sincere about anything beyond American power and authority. Few of them are truly religious. Many or most are quite corrupt. But they all share the vision of the Stars and Stripes dominating the globe, the vision which appears to give Trump goosebumps despite his record as a young man of cheaply avoiding the military draft used for just that purpose.

Israel in fact serves as a special category of American colony, and in order to keep a suitably fanatical group of supporters going there, the ancient text mumbo-jumbo is played for all it is worth.

The great irony is that it was men like Pence and Trump, their precise equivalents, who turned away boatloads of Jewish refugees from American shores in the 1930s, refusing to bend prejudices to save lives.

But, now, that the people they did not want are settled in a place far away – as well as a place of great strategic interest to Imperial America – we hear and see all kinds of sentimental religious stuff, stuff which never saw the light of day when it counted to save lives.

The worst extremists in Israel do seem to believe this stuff, even if most American – and I suspect, Israeli – politicians do not. The extremists in Israel play a somewhat similar role, fierce and unrelenting, to that of tribes like the Gurkhas in the old British Empire.
