Israel as a Terrorist State: What is the difference between State terrorism and individual terrorist acts?
by Syarif Hidayat
What is the difference between State terrorism and individual terrorist acts? If we understand this difference we’ll understand also the evilness of the US policies in the Middle East. – Dr. Lev Grinberg, a political sociologist, Director of the Humphrey Institute for Social Research, at Ben Gurion University in his article: “Israel’s State Terrorism.” When Yassir Arafat was put under siege in his offices and kept hostage by the Israeli occupation forces, he was constantly pressed into condemning terror and combatting terrorism. Israel’s State terrorism is defined by US officials as “self-defense”, while individual suicide bombers are called terrorists.
At the same time, Sharon’s responsibility for Israeli war crimes is being completely ignored. Who should be arrested for the targeted killing of almost 100 Palestinians? Who will be sent to jail for the killing of more than 120 Palestinian paramedics? Who will be sentenced for the killing of more than 1,200 Palestinians and for the collective punishment of more than 3,000,000 civilians ? And who will face the International Tribunal for the illegal settlement of occupied Palestinian Lands, and the disobedience of UN decisions for more than 35 years?
Suicide bombs killing innocent citizens must be unequivocally condemned; they are immoral acts, and their perpetrators should be sent to jail. But they cannot be compared to State terrorism carried out by the Israeli Government. The former are individual acts of despair of a people that sees no future, vastly ignored by an unfair and distorted international public opinion.
The latter are cold and “rational” decisions of a State and a military apparatus of occupation, well equipped, financed and backed by the US, the renowned World Preacher of Human Rights and the only superpower in the world.
“Terrorism” is here taken to mean the practice of the deliberate inflicting (either directly or indirectly) of harm, injury, death and/or destruction upon a civilian target sufficient to cause horror, revulsion or despair among civilian populations and/or their political leaders, with the goal of causing those populations or political leaders to act in a way desired by the terrorists.
A terrorist state is a state which practices terrorism, even if it pretends (or rather, lies) to the world that it does not. It hardly needs to be pointed out that Israel is a terrorist state. Brutal repression of, and bloody attacks on, Palestinian civilians with the official Israeli aim of causing a change in the policies or actions of the Palestinian leadership is a clear case of terrorism.
Of course, the U.S.A, the self-proclaimed World Preacher of Human Rights and Democracy continues to support the terrorist state of Israel by giving it tanks, planes, rocket launchers and financial support (the American tax-payers money) to the tune of three billion dollars a year, with which Israel has built up the fourth-largest military machine in the world.
The Israeli occupation of the Palestinian lands, the Israeli crimes against humanity and the Zionist state’s hegemony over the Middle East region will continue, however, only as long as American money makes it possible.
DISGRACEFUL APARTHEID STATE
There can be absolutely no doubt that Israel has created an inhuman, illegal and utterly disgraceful Apartheid state, and the international community will never be able to excuse itself if it takes no action against this blatant, ongoing and in-plain-sight crime against humanity.
The Zionist Double Talk
“When I say that terrorism is war against civilization, I may be met by the objection that terrorists are often idealists pursuing worthy ultimate aims — national or regional independence, and so forth. I do not accept this argument. I cannot agree that a terrorist can ever be an idealist, or that the objects sought can ever justify terrorism. The impact of terrorism, not merely on individual nations, but on humanity as a whole, is intrinsically evil, necessarily evil and wholly evil.”
“Terrorism is carried out purposefully, in a cold-blooded, calculated fashion. The declared goals of the terrorist may change from place to place. He supposedly fights to remedy wrongs — social, religious, national, racial. But for all these problems his only solution is the demolition of the whole structure of society. No partial solution, not even the total redressing of the grievance he complains of, will satisfy him — until our social system is destroyed or delivered into his hands.” – BENJAMIN NETANYAHU, International Terrorism
Israel has been a terrorist state from its beginning, and has its foundations in terrorism. Three Israeli prime ministers were or are terrorists! Facts speak for themselves correctly and objectively that ZIONISM is racist. Being a fundamentalist Zionist political movement, ZIONISM is not categorically different from Nazism. It is even worse than Nazism. Only when we understand ZIONISM in its racist context will we begin to comprehend the depth of its atrocities!!
Menachim Begin took part in terrorist acts in the 1940s, including the attack on the King David Hotel which killed 91 people.
Yitzhak Shamir was the operations commander, and later leader, of the Stern Gang, a terrorist group which was responsible for a string of political assassinations.
Ariel Sharon initiated the Sabra-Shatila massacre in which between 1000 and 3000 people (mostly Palestinians) were murdered, and now leads a terrorist campaign against all Palestinians living in the occupied territories of the West Bank.
More than 1,400 innocent Palestinians killed during 27 December 2008 – 18 January 2009 Zionist Israeli offensive on the Gaza Strip (Operation ‘Cast Lead’).
“Zionism is but an incident of a far reaching plan,” said leading American Zionist Louis Marshall, counsel for bankers Kuhn Loeb in 1917. “It is merely a convenient peg on which to hang a powerful weapon.”
The far-reaching plan is Illuminati world dictatorship. The Illuminati is the highest echelon of Freemasonry, an occult secret society dedicated to Lucifer. The world’s central bankers have intermarried with the richest dynastic families of Europe and America to bring about world hegemony. They instigated wars and depressions to degrade and destroy humanity. The American people have been financing their wars since 1914.
Of course, the U.S.A, the renowned World Preacher of Human Rights and Democracy continues to support the terrorist state of Israel by giving it tanks, planes, rocket launchers and financial support to the tune of three billion dollars a year, with which Israel has built up the fourth-largest military machine in the world.
The Israeli occupation of the Palestinian lands, the Israeli crimes against humanity and the Zionist state’s hegemony over the Middle East will continue, however, only as long as American money makes it possible.
Zionist Theodor Herzl: “We Will Lead Every Revolution Against Us”.
“You can help us or we ‘will overthrow the world’.” Chaim Weizmann, first president of the State of Israel
“We Jews, we are the destroyers and will remain the destroyers. Nothing you can do will meet our demands and needs. We will forever destroy because we want a world of our own.”(You Gentiles, by Jewish Author Maurice Samuels, p. 155).
“We will have a world government whether you like it or not. The only question is whether that government will be achieved by conquest or consent.”(Jewish Banker Paul Warburg, February 17, 1950, testifying before the U.S. Senate).
Mossad role in 9-11? The Washington Times, “Army study suggests U.S. force of 20,000” by Rowan Scarborough, 5 April 2002: Israel forces a “500-pound gorilla in Israel. Well armed and trained. Operates in both Gaza [and the West Bank]. Known to disregard international law to accomplish mission. Wildcard. Ruthless and cunning. Has capability to target U.S. forces and make it look like a Palestinian/Arab act.”
DAVID vs. GOLIATH
Palestinian Davids vs. The Zionist Goliaths = the poorly-armed Palestinians vs. the well-armed Israelis backed-up by the modern nuclear arsenal.
Today, estimates of the Israeli nuclear arsenal range from a minimum of 200 to a maximum of about 500. Whatever the number, there is little doubt that Israeli nukes are among the world’s most sophisticated, largely designed for “war fighting” in the Middle East.
The bombs themselves range in size from “city busters” larger than the Hiroshima Bomb to tactical mini nukes. The Israeli arsenal of weapons of mass destruction clearly dwarfs the actual or potential arsenals of all other Middle Eastern states combined, and is vastly greater than any conceivable need for “deterrence.”
A staple of the Israeli nuclear arsenal are “neutron bombs,” miniaturized thermonuclear bombs designed to maximize deadly gamma radiation while minimizing blast effects and long term radiation- in essence designed to kill people while leaving property intact.
The Israeli nuclear arsenal is backed-up by the delivery mechanisms that include Jericho intercontinental ballistic missiles with a range of 11,500 km, bringing all countries in the Middle East and Gulf regions including Iran and Europe as far as UK into its range.
THE ISRAELI NUCLEAR ARROGANCE AND THREAT TO THE WORLD:
“You can help us or we ‘will overthrow the world’.” – Chaim Weizmann, first president of the State of Israel.
Ariel Sharon, demonstrating the Israeli nuclear arsenal arrogance, says things like: “We are much more important than (Americans) think. We can take the Middle East with us whenever we go” and “Arabs may have the oil, but we have the matches!”
Ezar Weissman, former Israeli president said “The nuclear issue is gaining momentum (and the) next war will not be conventional.”
Moshe Dayan, a leading promoter of Israel’s nuclear program, has been quoted as saying “Israel must be like a mad dog, too dangerous to bother.”
Amos Rubin, an economic adviser to former Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir, said “If left to its own Israel will have no choice but to fall back on a riskier defense which will endanger itself and the world at large…”
A former Israeli official justified Israel’s threats. “You Americans screwed us” in not supporting Israel in its 1956 war with Egypt. “We can still remember the smell of Auschwitz and Treblinka. Next time we’ll take all of you with us.”
The Zionist leaders admit themselves that they are the murderers and the wrong doers!
“The Palestinians” would be crushed like grasshoppers … heads smashedagainst the boulders and walls.” – Yitzhak Shamir, Israeli Prime Minister, in a speech to Jewish settlers New York Times April 1, 1988.
“We have to kill all the Palestinians unless they are resigned to live here as slaves.” – Chairman Heilbrun of the Committee for the Re-election of General Shlomo Lahat, the mayor of Tel Aviv, October 1983.
“If I were an Arab leader, I would never sign an agreement with Israel. It is normal; we have taken their country. It is true God promised it to us, but how could that interest them? Our God is not theirs. There has been Anti – Semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault ? They see but one thing: we have come and we have stolen their country. Why would they accept that?” – David Ben-Gurion, founding father of Israel.
Moshe Dyan – 1969: “We came here to a country that was populated by Arabs and we are building here a Hebrew, a Jewish state; instead of the Arab villages, Jewish villages were established. You even do not know the names of those villages, and I do not blame you because these villages no longer exist. There is not a single Jewish settlement that was not established in the place of a former Arab Village.”
“I don’t mind if after the job is done you put me in front of a Nuremberg Trial and then jail me for life. Hang me if you want, as a war criminal. What you don’t understand is that the dirty work of Zionism is not finished yet, far from it.” – Former Prime Minister of Israel, Ariel Sharon, speaking to Amos Oz, editor of Davar, on Dec. 17, 1982.

You are a racist bigot if you still think that Palestinians are guilty.
I am 100% sure that even the monkeys in the cages are treated better than the Palestinians.
Do you see what is the “Justice” of IDF soldiers here?
Do you see how the Jews inject the venom of hate in their children?
Although the Image that Israel distributes about herself is that of an oppressed nation, it is with heavy hearts that we present these crimes that stand for themselves for the brutality of the Israeli Army and the heartlessness of its soldiers who seem to have a thirst for blood.
It is for the hope that the world may see a clearer picture that we present these painful facts. It is interesting to notice that today’s media does not dwell on these crimes as they do on the Holocaust. They are reported in the news for a week or two and then swept into the sea of oblivion. Those who attempt to revive the true history of Israel are charged of being anti-Semitic.
So with the hope to keep those memories in mind we present this shameful history of Israel that seems to have found that the role of Goliath is more interesting than that of David. (HSH)
