Who are the real terrorists? Palestinian resistance targets soldiers, while Israelis massacre women and children
|My book Questioning the War on Terror explores the question of what "terrorism" means, whether it's really a threat to Americans, and who's really behind it|
Was the Palestinian who drove a truck into a crowd of Israeli soldiers a "terrorist"?
Of course not.
The word "terrorism" means "attacking civilians to incite fear." The Palestinian truck driver did not attack civilians. He attacked soldiers. So call him a "resistance fighter" or "freedom fighter" or "anti-occupation combatant" or whatever else you want. But the one thing he obviously is NOT is a terrorist.
The Israel government and its IDF, however, are terrorists. They systematically target civilians to induce fear. Every few years they massacre another few thousand Gaza civilians, bombing hospitals and ambulances, strafing kids playing soccer on the beach, and drenching families with white phosphorous.
Maybe that Palestinian truck driver should be called an "anti-terrorism commando."
If Obama thinks "counterterrorism" means cowards at video-game consoles drone-massacring people at wedding parties because one or two of the people at the wedding belong to a group fighting to liberate their homeland from foreign occupation...well, in that case, taking out a bunch of IDF occupation terrorists in an operation that requires the anti-terrorism fighter to give up his life is downright HEROIC as counter-terror ops go.
But what about the similarities between this truck attack and the previous ones in Berlin and (last summer) in Nice?
The two truck attacks in Europe were indeed terrorist attacks. They targeted civilians, and incited fear.
And were carried out by the State of Israel, probably with help from its Gladio/NATO assets.

Meanwhile in Europe, the other principle bastion of what passes for Western civilization, back-to-back anti-Islam false flags in Nice, France and Munich, Germany were both recorded and propagandized by the same Israeli-Mossad-linked photographer. Richard Gutjahr, a cameraman whose wife Einat Wilf is a leading Israeli operator, was pre-positioned on a balcony in Nice to film the beginning of the July 14, 2016 truck attack. Gutjahr’s iconic footage was heavily promoted in the global media; no mainstream journalists bothered to ask why Gutjahr happened to be on that balcony and for no discernable reason began to film what must have appeared to be an ordinary truck before it had begun to mow people down.
Then on July 22, Gutjahr was apparently once again in the right place at the right time, photographing the Munich, Germany shopping mall shooting and posting the images to his Twitter account—then taking down the images, which simultaneously disappeared from a Russia Today report, just minutes after being exposed in a Veterans Today article by this author.[i]
Gutjahr’s wife Einat Wilf is a former Israeli Intelligence Officer in Unit 8200 who served as foreign policy advisor to Shimon Peres. She is a strategic consultant to MacKenzie and Co. in New York, and a general partner in Core Venture Capital in Israel. In 2007 she ran for the presidency of the World Jewish Congress.[ii] The claim that such a person’s spouse’s apparent foreknowledge of two back-to-back terror attacks can be accounted for by coincidence would boggle the mind of the craziest coincidence theorist.

Unlike Iran, which has forbidden the use of weapons of mass destruction from a religious stance, the US lacks religious elements that would prevent the proliferation and use of nuclear weapons, said Kevin Barrett, an author and political commentator in Madison, Wisconsin.
“Unfortunately, here in the United States, we don’t have that Godly element in our government,” Barrett told Press TV on Tuesday.
“So essentially, we’re run purely by psychopaths without any of that kind of wisdom that would say we’ve got to stop building these things before they get used,” he added.
“The nuclear industry is also dependent on the very worst and craziest strategists to keep itself in business building these horrific weapons…and unfortunately Donald Trump is currently surrounded by these neoconservatives and organized crime,” the scholar argued.
The New York Times reported on Monday that 37 top US scientists, including some of the world’s leading experts in the fields of nuclear science and arms control, have written to Trump, calling on him to abide by the nuclear agreement with Iran when he takes office on January 20.
“We urge you to preserve this critical US strategic asset,” reads the letter.
The signatories included Nobel laureates, original designers of nuclear weapons, former White House science advisers, and the chief executive of the world’s largest general society of scientists.
The three-page letter was organized by Richard L. Garwin, a physicist who helped design the world’s fist hydrogen bomb and has long advised US governments on arms control.
Iran and the P5+1 group – the US, Britain, France, China, Russia and Germany – reached a nuclear agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), in July 2015.
During his campaign prior to the November 8 presidential election, Trump promised to annul the deal. He called the pact a "disaster" and "the worst deal ever negotiated." He also said that the agreement could lead to a "nuclear holocaust."
Iran has all along highlighted the peaceful nature of its nuclear program, saying it has never had any intention to use it for military purposes. Also, Iran says it is forbidden to use weapons of mass destruction from a religious standpoint.
