War, What is it Good For?
Listen to an audio reading of this article:
For full video:
On October 7, at dawn, several Palestinians militia groups, led by Hamas launched a multi-pronged invasion into Israel, beginning with a barrage of several thousand rockets. Over 1200 Israelis are counted dead. This includes 260 music festival attendees who were gunned down by 50 Palestinians militants, some of whom flew into the festival in motorized para-gliders. About 40 hostages were taken, mostly women.
A young 23 year old German woman, Shani Louk, was captured, stripped, then paraded in the back of a pickup truck. According to her mother, she is still alive in critical condition, after receiving a head wound.
Benjamin Netanyahu vowed revenge, “The IDF will immediately use all its strength to destroy Hamas’s capabilities. We will destroy them and we will forcefully avenge this dark day that they have forced on the State of Israel and its citizens. As Bialik wrote: 'Revenge for the blood of a little child has yet been devised by Satan'.”
The IDF (Israel Defense Forces) claim they have killed 1500 Palestinians within Israel, and another 925 killed in Gaza.
Hamas cited the last year of settlement expansion and Israeli settler violence against Palestinians civilians as justification for the attack. Clashes in Jenin and at Al-Aqsa mosque, killed almost 250 Palestinians and 32 Israelis.
Israeli defense minister Yoav Gallant announced that Israel was at war and Gaza is now under seige:
“I have ordered a complete siege on the Gaza Strip. There will be no electricity, no food, no fuel, everything is closed,” Gallant said Monday, adding, “We are fighting human animals and we are acting accordingly.”
Israeli Prime Minister, Bibi Netanyahu is on record in January of this year, explaining Israel’s foreign policy towards Palestine in stark terms:
“These are the basic lines of the national government headed by me: The Jewish people have an exclusive and unquestionable right to all areas of the Land of Israel. The government will promote and develop settlement in all parts of the Land of Israel — in the Galilee, the Negev, the Golan, Judea and Samaria.”
This leaves little wiggle room for negotiation. A two-state solution would only work if both states wanted a two-state solution.
The western political establishment is virtually unanimous in its condemnation of Hamas, and gives full-throated support for Israel, who is portrayed as a victim of an immoral terrorist group.
Here in Canada, the Uniparty is, you guessed it unanimous, clambering over each other to see who can condemn Hamas the hardest. Pierre Poilievre, never one to let Trudeau best him, stated that Hamas, “… is a sadistic, demonic, genocidal, terrorist death cult and it must be defeated and destroyed.”
PPC leader Max Bernier is, as usual, the lone voice of reason in the collective insanity:
Caitlin Johnstone was quick to notice the lockstep narrative by the entire Western puppet brigade:
“The United States unequivocally condemns the unprovoked attacks by Hamas terrorists against Israeli civilians,” reads a statement from the White House.
“The loss of life in Israel as a result of the violent, calculated and unprovoked attack by Hamas is heartbreaking,” reads a statement by House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries.
“The unprovoked terror attack today and the murders of innocent Israeli citizens are a stark reminder of the brutality of Hamas and Iran-backed extremists,” reads a statement by congressman and house speaker contender Jim Jordan.
“This ignominious, unprovoked, and barbaric attack on Israel must be met with world condemnation and unequivocal support for the Jewish state’s right to self-defense,” tweeted presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
“This is an ‘unprovoked attack on civilians’: Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg,” reads a recent Fox News report.
Other commentators from the alternative community proclaimed the event was a staged false flag operation, conducted with the explicit consent of both Israel and Hamas, who are supposedly controlled by the globalists. David Icke, posted on Twitter within 3 hours of the attack:
Similar to the Ukraine-Russia conflict, the Palestinian citizens are not going to benefit. Israel has already conducted 200 airstrikes on Gaza targets, using this event as further cause for destroying what Human Rights Watch calls the “world’s largest open air prison.”
According to the United Nations, approximately 200,000 Palestinians have fled their homes. Drone footage reveals hundreds of buildings have been destroyed.
Why would Hamas orchestrate such a suicidal attack? They must be painfully aware after decades of retaliations by Israel that they will come out on the short end of the stick. Israel has already mobilized 300,000 reservists.
The answer is possibly desperation, after decades of incarceration in a prison camp, where the Palestinians are surrounded by 30-foot perimeter fencing.
According to a recent 2022 report by Unicef, “Largely due to the blockade, poverty, high unemployment rates and other factors, nearly 80 per cent of Gazans now rely on humanitarian assistance. More than half of Gaza’s just over 2 million people live in poverty, and nearly 80 per cent of the youth are unemployed. This year, humanitarians need US$510 million to provide food, water, sanitation and health services to 1.6 million people. The appeal is just 25 per cent funded.”
As for Hamas, their original stated goal from page 1 of their own charter written in 1988: “ Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.”
This charter was updated in 2017, and much of the antagonistic language was toned down. Hamas leader, Khalid Mashal, introduced the political document of principles and general policies. “Hamas affirms that its conflict is with the Zionist project, not with the Jews because of their religion,” said Mashal. This does little to comfort the families of the dead after the attack on Saturday.
Khalid Mashal in a video announcement, proclaimed Friday, October 13 as a day for “sacrifice, heroism, and dedication to jihad.” He called for Muslims worldwide to rise up in support of their cause and he urged Muslims to show anger and participate in demonstrations, particularly on the specified Friday. The call emphasized the significance of Al-Aqsa, the mosque in Jerusalem, and called for the exposure of “crimes of occupation” and the liberation of the Holy Land.
The alternative community is already hotly divided. Influencers like Jordan Peterson, Robert F. Kennedy and Rebel News owner, Ezra Levant have condemned Hamas in no uncertain terms and offered full support for Israel.
Billboard Chris, the unflappable defender of children’s rights, distanced himself from a Muslim woman involved with the 1 Million March 4 Children. This is probably not the greatest strategy at this moment in history. The Freedom Movement finally found an issue that everyone could unite on, and it began to draw support from other religious communities. Most people are aware that Muslims, Sikhs, Hindus, Asians and other immigrants are not going to support gender ideology being forced on their children in public school, if they are made aware of what is happening.
The anti-Jewish faction of the alternative community is equally condemning of Israel. Israel was initiated by a signed declaration by Lord Balfour in 1917. The declaration written to Lord Rothschild, essentially gave Palestine to the Jews, without asking permission of, or consulting with the Palestinian residents.
It does however, clearly state: “ … nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine.”
Possession is nine-tenths of the law, as the saying goes. Israel was not the first, nor was it the last ethnic group that invaded a foreign land. Such is life on Planet Earth.
The Freedom Movement can’t fight every battle that pops up. We will wear ourselves out playing wack-a-mole. We don’t have enough people or resources to take on every issue. Divisions and sub-divisions will render us moot.
The Fly in the Ointment
If you made it this far in the article, you’re a real trooper, because I’ve saved the best (and the worst) until last.
Palestinian President Mahmood Abbas declared a State of Emergency on March 5, 2020, after a handful of Greek tourists tested positive for Covid-19 in Bethlehem. There were no deaths at this time. Emergency measures included school closures, social distancing requirements and the obligatory mask wearing.
In 2020, Hamas and the Palestinian Authority signed up with Bill Gates’ GAVI and the WHO, in order to help fund and facilitate the vaccination rollout in 2021. Palestine received donations from Russia (Sputnik Vaccine), China (Sinopharm), Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca. Awfully nice of the global community to step up to the plate in their time of need. Over 1.7 million Palestinians are doubled-vaxxed currently. Even Israel forgot all about terrorism for awhile and cheerfully vaccinated 50,000 Palestinian workers for free.
Turning to Israel: During the pandemic, Israel instituted some of the harshest lockdown measures in the world. Ironically, on 20 March 2020, an 88-year-old Holocaust survivor in Jerusalem, who had previous illnesses, was announced as the country's first casualty.
Israel was an early investor in Moderna and bought large amounts of vaccines:
8 million shots of the Pfizer–BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.
10 million doses of the Oxford–AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.
6 million doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.
The Israelis continued with anti-government protests during the lockdown, but wore masks and obeyed social distancing mandates. “If we want to succeed, we need to do it the right way,” said protest organizer Shikma Schwarzmann. “We obey the law.”
The Freedom Movement began in response to the lockdown measures of our governments who openly and brazenly violated all of our civil rights. Not only that, they declared they were doing it for our own good. Many of us lost our jobs and careers. Some were fined and thrown in jail. Some are still in jail.
Then suddenly, the Freedom community was taking sides in the Ukraine-Russian War.
Then many in the Freedom community launched an assault on gender ideology in schools and spoke out against the reckless transitioning of young men and women through futile and damaging surgeries. This has brought us into a direct confrontation with the LGBTQ community. Check out our last article about the protest here in Vancouver that was infiltrated by hundreds of counter-protestors:
What happened to fighting the globalists?
Now are we all supposed to take sides in the Israeli-Palestine conflict? A significant percentage of the alt community hates Israel and Zionism, and others hate Islam.
We cannot advocate for war if we are to be a credible civil rights movement. All wars result in the suspension and degradation of civil rights. Peace and freedom go hand in hand.
Things are almost never what they seem in the media, so it is important to understand the propaganda and the psychological operation that are pushed by the media.
In conclusion, Jeff Berwick, an astute observer of the events of the last three years, suggests that the attack is a premeditated psyop to push the US and the West into a war with Iran, and by extension into a greater conflict with Russia. Judge for yourself. It would seem highly unlikely that Israel had no foreknowledge of the planned attack by Hamas.
