Israeli democracy a myth you say? Yes, a myth. According to news reports compiled and reported by Antiwar.com (May 8), the September 4 Israeli elections have been cancelled, because the "opposition leader Shaul Mofaz is joining the government."

Mofaz sold out his party for personal power, a typical politician's behavior.

Mofaz's treachery produced protests from his followers, but, according to news reports, "israeli police were quick to crack down on the protest, terming it "illegal' and arresting a number of journalists."

Ah, "Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East."

In truth Israel is a fascist state, one that has been in violation of international law and Judeo-Christian morality during the entirety of its existence. Yet, in America, Israel is a hallowed icon. Like Bush, Cheney, and Obama, millions of American "christians" worship Israel and believe it is "God's calling" for Americans to die for Israel.

If you believe in murdering your opponents, not debating with them, dispossessing the powerless, creating a fictional world based on lies and paying the corporate media to uphold the lies and fictional world, you are part of what the rest of the world perceives as "The West."

Let me back off from being too hard on The West. The French and Greek peoples have shown in the recent elections that they are unplugging from the Matrix and understand that they, the 99%, are being put by their elites in a position to be the sacrificial lambs for the mistakes of the 1% mega-rich, who compete with one another in terms of how many billions of dollars or euros, how many yachts, collections of exotic cars, and exotic Playboy and Penthouse centerfolds they have as personal possessions.

The central banks of the West -- the US Federal Reserve, the European Central Bank, and the UK bank -- are totally committed to the prosperity of the mega-rich. No one else counts. Marx and Lenin never had a target as exists today. Yet, the left-wing is today so feeble and brainwashed that it does not exist as even a minor countervailing power. The American left-wing has even accepted the absurd official account of 9/11 and of Osama bin Laden's murder in Pakistan by Navy Seals. A movement so devoid of mental and emotional strength is useless. It might as well not exist.

People without valid information are helpless, and that is where Western peoples are. The new tyranny is arising in the West, not in Russia and China. The danger to humanity is in the nuclear button briefcase in the Oval Office and in the brainwashed and militant Amerikan population, the most totally disinformed and ignorant people on earth.
