Israel continues the trend, world-wide, of people turning ugly, mean and hell bent on destruction as they re-elected Benjamin Netanyahu, possibly one of the most racist and militaristic-war mongers of all time.
From The New York Times:
"TEL AVIV — After a bruising campaign focused on his failings, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel won a clear victory in Tuesday’s elections and seemed all but certain to form a new government and serve a fourth term, though he offended many voters and alienated allies in the process."
I wasn't at all surprised that Netanyahu won.
Israel is a
hardened country of people who seem to believe that waging war is the norm, not
the exception. So it appears that the people of Israel want Netanyahu to continue
to push the Palestinians up against a wall. They want continues attacks on their
schools, market places and homes. Those people who must continue to rebuild
their infrastructures—not once but over and over again. They must continue to
burry their dead—not once, but over and over again.
Netanyahu plans a future of perpetual war. He and those who support him are not much different from the very Nazis that persecuted the Jewish people of
during World War II. It is ironic that he can't see the glaring similarities.
The majority of the country seem to be cut from societies where strength, power and brutality are important to their macho egos.
Our local Republican Party of Kansas is doing this very thing. Without specifically calling for class war fare these scum bags attack the rights and what few benefits the state gives to the lower classes to the point where they seem to demand that people either get off public money or die in the streets. The most cruel actions of the Kansas Republican Party is to prevent poor people from getting ANY help for their medical needs. This party literally wants to kill off the poor through disease.
Of course there is no chance that the
US will ever reign in on Israeli
war-mongering. Israel is a
sacred cow of US
foreign policy and no politician will dare to confront them.
These are of the most difficult times I have ever lived in. In the past there seemed to be some level heads as to trying to provide a government that shows responsibility to its citizens. It is easy to be a communist in these times as humanity seems so lost—so vengeful, so hateful towards the lower classes. We are in the mist of class war against the lower classes—both at home in
around the world. The far-far-far right has taken control of both the
government and the mainstream press—both in the US, the imperialist countries and the imperialist subjugates (Such as India).
It is easy to be a communist when your leaders are nothing but fascist warmongering scum bags. There is absolutely no legitimacy or points of respect for today's leaders.
We are in a world run by scum.
