Once Upon A Time There Was A 2nd Holocaust
The inevitable genocide and annexation of Palestine.
If I can say this has been a busy week, I couldn’t say the least. As we can recently remember, a few weeks ago, Hamas fighters were able to penetrate an Israel border fence in the occupied territories of Palestine and attacked a rave thrown by young off duty IDF officers and settlers who had taken over homes once inhabited by Palestinian families. Some of the video footage that didn’t air on not many news and social media platforms were attacks that were released on some internet sites. I was able to see some of the brutality of the initial attack. As party goers were trying to flee in their cars, those who did not stop and surrender to Hamas fighters, were being shot as they tried to drive through barricaded roads to escape. The scenes were quite disturbing. Many of the Israeli rave attendees were also taken captive along with Israeli colonizers in the surrounding areas. The brazen and organized attack seemed to be planned out for months which some officials are claiming.
Newly re-elected Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was quick to seize on the opportunity to exact revenge on Palestine for the attack that many pro Zionist sympathizers have labeled Israel’s 911. To add to this comparison of 911, its important to contextualize that in the past, Israeli intelligence officers were detained on the day of 911 for celebrating the attacks when they were observed by a witness dancing on a roof of a building as the towers fell. The suspects were sent back to Israel and in an interview with Israeli media, one of the intelligence officers told a reporter that they were celebrating the attack because they knew that it would draw the US into their conflict with the middle east. This footage of that particular interview has since been scrubbed from the internet and social media websites. Israel has always had a desire to draw the U.S. into their conflicts, going all the way back to the war of 1967.

To continue, soon after the attack by Hamas on the festival, Israeli forces decided to unleash a massive bombing campaign on Gaza City disregarding its civilian population and its very own Israeli hostages that have been taken captive by Hamas. The indiscriminate collective genocide by Israel has broken almost every international war crime that has been on the books since WW2. The initial bombing campaign has devastated north and central Gaza, and as of now, the illegal bombing of civilian's is working its way south. Israel has bombed hospitals, schools, and residential buildings, claiming that Hamas has been purposely hiding behind its civilian population, which Israel claims it gives them the authority to indiscriminately bomb Gaza. They have also told civilians to flee their homes, only to bomb and massacre them as they flee. So far the death toll of Palestinian civilians is over 3000, which over 50% of them being under the age of 16. As of now it is undetermined how many Palestinian civilians and Israeli hostages have been bombed by Israeli airstrikes. Hamas and Palestinian resistance fighters have been firing smaller ranged rockets into Israel which has been largely intercepted by Israel’s Iron dome defense system sponsored and funded by the United States Military.
Israel has had a long standing policy, undisclosed to the majority of the west that If an Israeli life is lost do to any acts of violence by Palestinians, it is worth 20 Palestinian lives to avenge that Israeli life lost. This may explain why the Zionist far right regime in the Israeli government are exhibiting a huge bloodlust towards Palestinian civilians. Many top Israeli generals have been referring to Palestinians as subhuman and animals to justify the genocide. So call this anything other than a genocide, would be disingenuous. Since the genocide of Palestine begun, there have been large amounts of Pro Israeli Zionist propaganda posts circulating throughout all of western media. If you go by the official narrative in the west. Hamas is the one responsible for all the destruction in Gaza and Israel, and Israel’s genocidal response to the attack at the festival. Israeli officials falsely claiming that Hamas is hiding behind civilian's in hospitals, mosques, and Christian churches as they bomb them. The western media from the beginning of this new holocaust has framed the narrative as Israel’s war against Hamas. Pro Israel Zionists knowingly calling it a war against Palestine would undermine Israel’s ability to draw and gather more support from the western public. and to them, that can not happen. So you must understand why you will hear every western media outlet state with the repetitive narrative that this is a war against Hamas.
What’s even more disturbing is how the western media refers to Israeli civilian deaths as tragedies, which in fact they are. But goes out of its way to misreport, and even in most cases not acknowledge the casualties on the Palestinian side of the genocide. You have to search long and hard to find any news in any of the major networks about the atrocities that are happening to the civilian population in Gaza.
Over the past decades as long as I remember, pro Zionist messaging has had a profound impact on the western world through legacy media, the entertainment industry, and political culture. The narrative has always been that Arabs were the bloodlust monsters bent on destroying western democracy, and that Israel was the only free and fair democracy representing the middle east. That Israel was surrounded by enemies and that they were the ones that could keep them at bay. The message has always been that Arabs wanted to complete Hitlers dream of exterminating Jews and that Palestinians along with Iran were the biggest threat to Israel’s existence. Any deviation from this narrative in the 80’s and 90’s would come at a great cost to any American or westerner who dared sympathize with the Palestinian cause or tell the truth about the Israeli governments aggression in the middle east.
I can remember that those who had prestige credentials or celebrity statis in the west, would never dare question Israel. If so, they would immediately be labeled and smeared as an antisemite or Jew hater. Their careers would be tarnished and ruined, and an endless political and defamation onslaught would make the rounds in all of the major news outlets. The antisemitic smear worked great for years for pro Zionists in the west who felt that any criticisms of the Israeli treatment of Palestinians was not acceptable. The campaign was so effective that it kept the public silent for decades on the issue. I can tell you first hand that my stances on Israel today, would destroy any hopes of me starting a business or achieving a higher goal in western society at the time. This is the reason why people in the public eye have been avoiding commenting on the current genocide and annexation of Palestine, and why in many cases politicians and celebrities are down right vociferously sounding their approval for it.
So what’s different from back in the 80’s, 90’s and 2000,s than it is from today? Well, there seems to be a shift in public opinion about the truth on what has been going on in Gaza and in the West Bank. People in the west are beginning to wake up and witness the genocide and annexation of Palestine in real time. The pro Israeli propaganda has been obviously so terrible, that it’s actually harming the old narrative. Add the over usage of the antisemitic smear tactic to discredit political opponents, peace activists, and anyone opposed to Zionism, and you have a western population that is not buying the bullshit any longer. What’s worse, it that real antisemitism has a chance to gain its ugly head unchallenged, because Zionists have diluted the word and it’s true meaning. The biggest fallacy about the antisemitic smear tactic is that Palestinians are semitic people. So by pro Zionist definition, doesn’t this make themselves antisemites? I think so, since what they are doing is gathering unjustified communal hatred towards real jews who adamantly and collectively disagree with their far right heads of state.
What’s amazing to see is that hundreds of thousands and millions of people around the world are finally recognizing the truth about Israeli apartheid and it’s genocide of Palestine, and are protesting this latest onslaught of bombing woman and children in Gaza by this far right tyrannical regime. This awakening has garnered many high profile angry Zionists who are predominately Christian in the west. But nevertheless the anger is real, and they’ve gone to unprecedented amounts of posting and spewing fake propaganda on social media. Easily debunked, this propaganda is not reminiscent to the past where they seamed to excel at it. Even when factual evidence of Israeli war crimes are presented to pro western Zionists, its always Hamas’s fault. Refusing to acknowledge that Israel dialed the coordinates and pushed the button, launching the missile strike that brutally ended the lives of innocent women and children. In one case I even heard Zionists say that they deserved their fate for voting for Hamas.
What has also caught my eye was the hypocrisy of the Maga right, who seemed to be anti Ukraine war and pushing the narrative that American tax dollars should not be spent on a foreign country half way around the world. And at the same time, loudly cheering for their support for a blank check to an apartheid state conducting genocide. That would make sense, since a majority of the fascist right are underline racists. But this may pertain more to the fundamentalist Christian right in the west, who are pro Zionist for only one reason. To ferment the outstanding hatred for jews around the world, that the world would finally have enough, unite, and exterminate them. Therefore bringing the christain messiah back to earth to deliver them to salvation. Organizations like AIPAC and the ADL have expressed concerns about the atrocities happening to Israelis, but have conveniently and confidently ignored the genocide of Palestine by the far right Israeli government. Zionist Podcasters like Baby voice Ben Shapiro and others like unhinged rightwing Zionist Laura Loomer, have openly cheered on the genocide of Palestinians while labeling any criticisms towards their hatred of Arabs as antisemitic. The cartoon world these pro-genocide apologists live in, has shown us that their brains have been having total meltdowns since the rebellion towards Zionism began.
ONCE UPON A TIME, A Story of Genocide
So why would I call this a rebellion, right? Well, the best way I can explain it is, you live next door to me. Then I build a small home in your backyard and claim I have a right to settle up in your yard because my ancestors were native American and owned the land hundreds of years ago. So I grab a few of my friends, arm ourselves with guns and grenades that were given to us by our rich friends down the street. Then we told you that if you have a problem with it, then you can fight us for your yard back. You tell us to leave and call the police. The police arrive and tell you that you have a week to move out, that the house belongs to us. You refuse and hunker down in your home, locking the doors. The police cut off and control your access to food, water, and supplies. As time goes by, you become more and more desperate to eat and feed your family. As you attempt to leave your home to get essential goods, we stop you. We then beat the crap out of you or one of your family members. Maybe we rape your wife or one of your daughters, or haul one of your sons to a jail to be tortured. Then out of desperation one of your neighbors who sees the evil we are doing to you, gives you a few guns to protect yourself. I rage about your neighbor doing this, and I beg the whole neighborhood to kill that neighbor who helped you. I claim that your neighbor is trying to kill my family and that you will pay the price for accepting his help.
The next day I come to your home, break down your door, and start beating one of your family members. After the beating I go home and your kids throw rocks at my house. Then from the safety of my car, I shoot at your kids. Maybe I kill a few. You then shoot a few rounds at my house, but it’s bullet proof because my rich neighbor down the street gave me money to put in bulletproof windows and walls. A few bullets somehow get through, but mostly nothing happens to my house. After years of this hell I’ve inflicted on you and your family, you are at end levels of desperation and survival. Everytime you try to fight back, the police show up and kill or haul off one of your family members to jail. Out of desperation you arm up again with whatever you have left and devise a plan to take back the yard I stole from you. later, I let my kids and their friends throw a party in your yard. You then decide that this is the perfect opportunity to reclaim your yard and maybe take a few kids hostage to negotiate a deal with me.
After you brilliantly execute your plan, a few kids unfortunately get killed, and you manage to take a few hostages. I decide to call the police. The police come over and bomb your whole house to the ground killing whoever’s left in your home, including the few hostages inside. As you lie dying, you ask the police why they had to kill you, the hostages, and your family. They tell you because you are a terrorist and its a war. That you shouldn’t have used your family and hostages as human shields.. Then the news media shows up and calls you and your family terrorists. Then the police chief holds a press conference and says that you and your family deserved to die because you were are all subhuman and animals. Soon after, celebrities and media throw a memorial for me. I become exalted and praised, and I receive mass sympathy from the Mayor. Little do I know, this time, the whole neighborhood is waiting for me outside with pitchforks and torches. And they are pissed! And the media and police don’t understand why. So they crack their skulls, ban the whole neighborhood from protesting their disapproval of your death. Ban them from all of social media, and then buy ads telling everyone how terrible you and your family were.
Todays current events in the middle east and the rapid decline of the US empire has effected me in a way that most of the time it feels like I’m in a dream. I would had never thought that in my years of life I would be around during the second holocaust and that it would be perpetrated by a small far right fraction of the victims of the last holocaust. But here we are. Ever since the tragedy has unfolded in Israel and Palestine, I have to keep pinching myself, and ask if I’m dreaming. People are literally cheering on the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians while presenting themselves as the victims of antisemitism. People who are opposing the genocide are being doxxed and fired from their places of employment. Reporters are being censored for showing the other side of the conflict. And the leaders of the west seem to be full blown homicidal and hell bent on ending life on the planet for everyone. I can tell you that there is no electoral solution to this problem. There will be no savior. The time where we will collectively have to make a choice between survival or extinction may be sooner than we realize.
