GREG MAYBURY—This “mythos” of Israel is further sustained by emotional blackmail, psychological projection, cultural subversion, and a singularly impressive, all-embracing web of political manipulation, corruption, influence peddling, coercion, espionage, and extortion that reaches the highest levels of our governments and the various institutions which form the fabric of the Western body politic. If one likes, demonstrating a preternatural predisposition for biting the hand that feeds one!
The one factor common to the “desired ends” mentioned earlier, and the first in the ‘queue’ for Israel, is the measure of how this will serve Israel’s interests. The interests of its chief patron are, if included in the calculus at all, more often than not secondary, and perfunctorily considered.
Behind the apparently impermeable veil of this “mythos” is an appalling, disturbing, well-documented history of torture, ethnic cleansing, material expropriation, land dispossession, racism, genocide, assassination, bloodshed, chauvinism, extremism, terrorism, colonial-style exploitation and tyranny, ethnocentrism, and an overweening disdain for international law
