The Long Arm of Israel better be amputated
Sunday, 21 February 2010 20:20
by Gilad Atzmon

Gilad Atzmon (Hebrew: גלעד עצמון‎, born June 9, 1963) is a jazz musician, author and anti-Zionist activist who was born in Israel and currently lives in London.
"Anti-Semite is an empty signifier, no one actually can be an Anti-Semite and this includes me of course. In short, you are either a racist - which I am not - or have an ideological disagreement with Zionism... which I have."
He was born a secular Israeli Jew in Tel Aviv, and trained at the Rubin Academy of Music in Jerusalem. His service in the Israeli military convinced him Israel had become a militarized state controlled by religious extremists. In 1994, Atzmon emigrated from Israel to London, where he studied philosophy. Atzmon is an anti-Zionist who critiques Jewish identity issues and supports the Palestinian Right of Return as well as the establishment of a single state in Israel/Palestine. He is a signatory to the "Palestinians are the Priority Petition" which states “full and unconditional support of the Palestinian people is a condition sine qua non for activists to adopt.

We have learned in the last few days that the Dubai assassins were Mossad agents who stole identities of six UK citizens and faked at least five other European passports. Dubai Police yesterday presented footage of some of the 11 ‘Europeans’ suspected of killing Hamas commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh.

According to the Guardian, “Official sources said UK authorities issued the British passports used by the assassins in Dubai last month.”

At least six of the people whose names appeared on the British passports used by the assassins in Dubai, live in Israel. Naturally they all deny any involvement. It is indeed more than likely that they have nothing to do with the specific crime, however, assuming that they are Jewish immigrants of Israel, to a certain degree, they are complicit in the Zionist crime, a crime that is now regarded by many as a plain crime against humanity.

 
To some extent, this event is a warning sign for world Jewry: in case you ever consider making Aliya (immigrating to Israel) or joining the Zionist project, just bear in mind that you are at risk of finding your name directly involved in murder. This is only a reasonable conclusion. Considering Israel is committing its crimes in the name of the Jewish people, its accepting supporters should expect to be subject to Mossad’s identity theft.

To date, the Israeli government is yet to comment on allegations of its involvement in Mabhouh's killing in Dubai. However, the allegations are likely to trigger a diplomatic row with Britain, Ireland, Germany and France.

But there is something that the British press has failed to mention for the time being. The Mossad is operating with an intimate proximity to the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office. The Mossad’s director reports directly to the Prime Minister. In other words, once the allegations are proved to be true, Israeli PM Netanyahu, should join the rapidly emerging list of ‘prisoners of Zions’, those Israeli leaders who cannot leave Israel for legal reasons. Like Tzipi Livni, Ehud Barak, Ehud Olmert and Shaul Mofaz, Netanyahu should expect to face an arrest warrant for condoning identity theft and ordering murder once he lands in Europe.

The Mossad presents itself as ‘Israel’s long arm’. As things stand, the longer its arm is, the fewer journeys Israeli leaders can afford to take out of their modern Jewish Ghetto. In practice, Israel’s leaders now have to think carefully before they take the risk and step onto a plane.

Israel - A Classic Case of "You Damned if You do and You damned if You Don't"
When Israel went on the offensive in Gaza in response to 10,000 rockets being fired at it for the prior 8 years, the world was up in arms for the rather scaled collateral damage. "There was no excuse for the innocent killed" cried the critics and the Goldstone report was issued. "Next time" Israel was told "just hit the target, nothing else". And allegedly this is what Israel has done this time! Only Mahboub - the Hamas leader who used a forged passport to enter Dubai (just like the assasains) and was responsible for the assasination of 2 Israeli soldiers and dozens of suicide bombers he sent - was killed. No one else, no collateral damage. And the response? Not an "Okay this was a clean and surgical kill", no "kudos for complying with IHL" just a "oh now you broke another law by killing a terrorist and only him with no collateral damage". It seems that whatever Israel does, everyone will have sometihng to say - until Israel's hands are totally tied in its ability to defend itself, and dies in an attempt to sacrifice it in order to save Western civilization from the clutches of Islam. Is it any wonder Israelis no longer care about intl. criticism?
