Naomi Klein is dead wrong on Hamas and the Gaza debacle

What follows is my response to the following article by Naomi Klein:
Want to End the Violence in Gaza? Boycott Israel.
By Naomi Klein, The Nation. Posted January 9, 2009.
First let me start by saying that Naomi Klein's, the "Shock Doctrine," is one of the most important books of the last 10 years.  But Naomi is dead wrong to insist on a boycott of Israel.
First take a look at Israel.  It has been painted into a corner by a host of countries that have recently been infected with virulent Islamism: a religion that castigates gays, Jews and basically anyone that have not, or will not, embrace Islam.
Bush poured gasoline on the Islamic fire by touting "democracy" which our founding fathers saw as the most reprehensible system in the world, unless it was contained by a Bill of Rights.  Within that Bill of Rights is a call for absolute separation between church and state.  As a result democratic elections brought Hezbollah to Lebanon and Hamas to the Gaza Strip.
And to further this destructive calculus we have Saudi Arabia and the United States fanning the flames of Islamic Fascism as well.  The United States has done this through support for the KLA in Kosovo, the Taliban in Afghanistan and the ISI in Pakistan.
As a result we now have forming a very dangerous Islamic Crescent throughout the Middle East which is most definitely in ascendancy as I speak.
It is curious how Klein, and many others, gloss over some very inconvenient facts:
(1) Hamas does not recognize Israel's right to exist.
(2) Hamas has announced, on more than one occasion, that it wants to wipe Israel off the map.
(3) Hamas has been hurling missiles at Israel ever since it secured power, through a democratic election, just a few years ago.
The solution to this problem is to destroy Islamism wherever it exists and that would be in every Muslim country that allows the practice of Sharia laws.  Obama needs to stop any further US economic support to Saudi Arabia, Egypt and other Islamic Theocracies: should they not immediately eradicate all vestiges of Sharia.  That is the only viable answer.
And before you open your uninformed mouth on this one let us just consider that this is exactly what had to happen to put Roman Catholicism back in their place.  It is also a solution recommended by many Muslims including Irshad Manji: the lesbian author of "The Trouble With Islam."
Before the Enlightenment, and the Reformation, Roman Catholicism engaged in Inquisitions and Crusades.  During this reign of terror both Christian (e.g., Gnostic) and Pagan believers died by the Roman Catholic sword, just as non-Muslims are today.
If you go to my the "Dearbornistan" sub web of my website,, you will understand the truth of what I am stating here.  Islamism is a disease that needs to be eradicated from the planet.  It is the last virulent vestige of Theocracy that must be removed from the planet.
Having said that, I would also recommend the removal of a less apparent theocracy that goes by the name of Corporatism, or simply Fascism.  Naomi Klein is very familiar with this nemisis.  This is a religion that worships money at the expense of everything else -- including the people it is suppose to serve.  Unfortunately it is becoming more apparent, by the day, that Obama, worships at the Church of Corporatism.  And I hope nothing more than to be wrong on this one.
We have most probably never entered such uncertain times as we find ourselves today.  But that does not mean that there isn't a humanitarian solution.  In the case of Gaza the solution is, in part, the recognition by Hamas, of Israel's right to exist.  And unfortunately if they don't do this we could very well be seeing the beginnings of the next World War.  Because once the Lebanese Hezbollah unleash from the North, the entire world will be drawn into this evolving disaster.
Unfortunately, Naomi Klein remains clueless about the danger that Islam poses, not just to Israel, but to the entire world.  And while you chew on this you might well ask yourself why the US has fanned the flames of Islamic Extremism for so many, many decades.
I don't have the time or patience to explain this one to you.  Fortunately the following article, by Professor Peter Dale Scott, will at least suffice as a primer, from which you might begin to understand the larger "agenda" that is presently being forced upon us.

Martial Law, the Financial Bailout, and War
by Prof. Peter Dale Scott Global Research, January 8, 2009

In my estimation this is part of the plan towards world domination by Globalists such as Kissinger and Brzezinski.  I surely hope on wrong on this one.  But unfortunately my predictions have, for the most part, materialized.  I can only hope that Obama and others begin to understand what I am requesting.   Because the truth is, if we can eliminate the theocratic tendancies of Islam, we might just resolve this problem without the need for a single additional death.

And all I am asking is that Islam recognize that they have no right to compel or coerce others to believe in their pathetic misogynistic theocratic agenda.  And if they cannot do that we, the freemen and freewomen of this planet will have little recourse, other than to forcefully put them back in their place.  And if we could do it to Roman Catholicism, don't feel too slighted as we insist on also doing it to Islamism.
