- the U.S.-supported wars on Indonesia, East Timor, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Honduras, Chile, Angola, and other places which killed many millions of civilians;

- the wars on Afghanistan and Iraq, which have killed more than one million people.

In 1947-1948, European & American Zionist Jews ethnically-cleansed more than 700,000 Palestinians from their ancestral villages and cities (including massacres, rapes, and pillaging) while British troops did nothing (this was the Palestinian "Nakba" or Catastrophe); and Israel has not only ignored numerous U.N. resolutions about its brutal treatment of Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank and its illegal settlements in the West Bank since 1967, but has committed numerous war crimes and crimes against humanity in Lebanon in 1982 (more than 15,000 killed) and 2006, and massive war crimes in Gaza in December, 2008 through January, 2009 ("Operation Cast Lead" which killed more than 1,400 Palestinians), and still holds 1.5 million people in a murderous siege in the world's largest open-air prison: Gaza.

Israel is also the ONLY nuclear weapons state in the Middle East, possessing at least 200 nuclear weapons, while refusing to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (which Iran DID sign) and refusing to allow U.N. IAEA inspections of its nuclear facilities (which Iran HAS allowed, and which show that it does NOT have a nuclear weapons development program).

It must be understood that nuclear weapons are weapons of OMNICIDE, not merely mass murder and genocide. They kill ALL living things. Every nation which possesses them (the U.S., Russia, the U.K., France, Israel, China, India, Pakistan, and Korea) is guilty of deliberately planning the mass murder of civilians and all other living things.

How is this "normal"?

Why do we passively accept this psychopathic insanity?

This is Jeffrey Dahmer on steroids, raised to a global level of terror and mass murder.

So before we get worked up about violent Islamic jihad, remember the brutal, bloody, mass-murderous history of Christians and Jews who claim to live according to the teachings of Jesus the Christ or Rabbi Hillel, both based on the Golden Rule.

My idea for a counter poster to the current, now-infamous NY City subway posters put up by the deeply, anti-Islamic Pamela Geller, and which I wish someone would post throughout the NY City subway system and on NY City buses, would feature a photo of Gazan children killed by Israeli soldiers in "Operation Cast Lead" (December, 2008 through January, 2009), with this caption:

Gazan children killed in Israel's "Operation Cast Lead", 2008-2009

Is this Israeli "civilization"?

Such photos can be found here:
