Profile of Imperial Lawlessness

Israel is a rogue terror state.

by Stephen Lendman

Israel is second only to America in imperial lawlessness. Both nations partner in high crimes too grave to ignore. 

Neither admits fault. One conflict leads to others. Both nations are modern-day Spartas. They live by the sword. Perhaps one day they'll perish by it. Humanity may not last that long.

State terror is official policy. Palestinians suffered for decades. Professor Yehuda Bauer is Hebrew University's Institute of Contemporary Jewry Professor Emeritus.

He's a holocaust scholar. He studied genocide for decades. He prioritizes ways to stop it. He boycotts Yad Vashem ceremonies. He does so on the eve of Holocaust Martyrs and Heroes Day.

He calls juxtaposing "heroes" and "martyrs" "foolish." He can't bear vapid speeches. They're "void of content and packed with cliches."

What does "Never again" mean, he asks? It's an "empty slogan." It belies the fact that holocausts repeat. He deplores messianic hard-right rabbis. They incite mass murder. 

They're "potentially responsible for genocide." They advocate killing non-Jews and Israeli opponents. They desecrate the meaning of "Thou shalt not kill." They claim it only applies to one Jew killing another. 

They're "heretics," They believe murdering Muslims and Christians is OK. Religious extremism is dangerous. More harm has been done in the name of religion than much else. 

"Beware those who believe in the coming of the messiah," says Bauer. Zionism betrays its roots "when it doesn't treat (its) non-Jewish minority equally."

At his age, he calls himself "a dinosaur."

He says Netanyahu doesn't know history. For sure he doesn't know or care about rule of law principles. 

He's an ideologue, says Bauer. He believe Jews should rule greater Israel. He uses anti-Semitic rhetoric "demagogically."
