The Recent events in the Middle East who is behind the Palestine Papers

Recent major events in the Middle East, particularly
Tunisia and now with the release of ‘The Palestine Papers’
raises a number of questions.

To me, there are two important questions. One is who is
behind these leaked papers, and secondly what is their purpose.

I do not have a TV, and was in bed Monday the 24th when this broke.
After my marital separation the TV was the second thing to go after
cable. It was a matter of expenses, but also when I was supposed to be
studying subjects like Property law The Sopranos seemed more interesting,
than something that was mind numbing boring. I like not having a TV.

I watched much less TV after I returned from Vietnam. And, I watched the
news even less because I knew that the news was propaganda. Thirty plus years
later the techniques and methods of propaganda, or media manipulation of the
masses is an art.

Those in power have their viewpoints put across to the masses of people by
articles, plans, schemes hatched up by masters of propaganda within the CIA, MI6,
Mossad, the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation (FSB), or The
Ministry of Public Security (MPS) in The People’s Republic of China et al.

I watched the events of 9/11 on a big screen TV in a Cork, Ireland hotel. When the Twin Towers came tumbling down a man in a suit next to me said to his friend “It’s looks like an implosion.” He was right. We know that today.

But, to me as I watched the events unfold I was awaiting for the F-16 fighter interceptor jets to appear. They were nowhere in sight. I learned later that prior to 9/11 most of these interceptor jets were sent to Alaska, Canada, Iceland (home of Wikileaks), and I believesome were sent to Montana.

Unlike most people I didn’t believe that a small group of terrorists (who coincidentally had prior ties to the CIA would have the capacity[box cutters; give me a break]. How stupid do they think people are) or the ability to elude security, intelligence on many levels, not to mention to get the pilots to open the aircraft doors and give them the controls without a fight!

When a major event happens I don’t go by what the media says. I ignore the New York Times, though I will look at their coverage and try to read between the lines. And, there are some journalist on the Times, as in most newspapers who are reputable investigative reporters like Scott Shane, or Mark Mazzetti. Seymour Hersh, who broke the My Lai scandal and cover-up of the massacre of over 500 unarmed Vietnamese civilians. Most of those people gunned down were women and children; some were babies. He also broke in the media the brutal treatment of Iraqi’s detained at Abu Ghraib, prison in Baghdad, Iraq.

But, the New York Times has been, and is nothing more than a ‘mouthpiece for the Ruling Class. It is one of the newspapers that Julian Assange curiously handed over the Wiki Leaks cables, data for the newspaper to decide which things were important to publish for the American people. Convenient!

I don’t always trust leftist publications, or writers because I am aware of the words of" William Colby, former CIA Director: "The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the major media.” I learned in Vietnam to trust what I see, hear or deduce.

I look at the historical background, or backdrop to what is taking place in any situation whether in Tunisia, Egypt, Iraq, Afghanistan, or Palestine.

And, a fact is that the US is preparing to launch WW III. It’s neo-conservative
(and American Zionists). They believe that they have the military superiority of weapons, and technology to attack both Russia , China and Pakistan. And both Russia and China are making preparations for it. That is the background to all events.

If Hitler was insane to attack Russian and wage a war on both fronts, then how much more arrogant are the military leaders of the US. Hopefully this issue could cause a split within the ranks to avoid war. But war is on the horizon

About recent events there are those in the CIA and the US government who praise
the events in Tunisia and claim that it is a Wiki Leaks led revolution.

Some would say that the events in Tunisia had nothing to do with Wiki Leaks.

I take a middle position. I believe without a doubt that the reality in Tunisia was the festering unemployment, poverty (amidst great wealth), and corruption. That is what sparked the recent events in Tunisia, and now across the Middle East.

What I do believe is that the CIA, MOSSAD will do their best to get a ruler
who will betray the people. Webster Tarpley has suggested that the US wants to destabilize the current crop of dictators and replace them with more willing partners in its drive towards global war. I believe that there is some merit to that. This means that if the people of Tunisia do not win they will be saddled
with a more brutal regime. The army can be a key factor is deciding this situation…if it sides with the people.

About The Palestine Papers when they first came out, and tweets showed up
it seemed as though the Palestinian leadership had betrayed the people in negotiations. And, there were even reports that Israel offered the Palestinian negotiators all that they could perhaps want.

Then, news came of how Israel had no intention of offering significant compromises. Also, hat the US was Israel’s partner, not an honest broker in the alleged peace talks. Surprise surprise; the US has been on Israel’side from the gitgo. It provides Israel with the weapons to maintain its bloody occupation.

Then, we read that Condi Rice, Bush White House girlfriend, suggested that the Palestinian people be relocated to South America; that is the same place where the US
hid the worst Nazi war criminals at the end of WW II.

What I believe first and foremost is that these leaks benefit Israel even though it Shows how bad the Zionist regimes have been, and their view of the Palestinian peoples. Because what it does is set the people against each other. It sets them against their leadership; though their leaders may well deserve it.

I am not Palestinian, so I will limit my comments in that regard; I have not lived there, And do not have the knowledge as those who live there do. But, Israel will bribe, blackmail or assassinate leaders of the people.

And, Israel never had any intention of an honest attempt to make peace. And, even by showing this in the leaks it is like saying ‘you will never be allowed to return.’ That is to push down any hope of the Palestinian people. And I believe that the Zionist regime wants to reinforce this message.

These leaks by Al Jazeera did something that both the Zionist and American regimes want; to shut down Al Jazeera. Now, they have the Palestinian people or thugs of the leadership attacking the one news source that provided some truth.

So, I for one believe that Mossad and possibly the CIA are behind these leaks. It’s a question of who benefits.

But as Malcolm X once said “truth is on the side of the oppressed.” And, truth and justice is on the side of the Palestinian peoples.

Article 13 of The Universal Declaration of Human Rights states that “Everyone has the
the right to leave any country, including his own, and return to his country."

The Palestinian people were ethnically cleansed from theirs!

The International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination
Article 5 (d) (ii) states State parties undertake to prohibit and to eliminate racial discrimination on all its forms and to guarantee the right of everyone, without distinction as to race, color, or national or ethnic origin, to equality before the law, notably in the enjoyment of ... the right to leave any country, including one's own, and to return to one's country."

The Palestinian people were ethnically cleansed from theirs!

Article 12 (4) of the The International Convention on Civil and Political Rights states: "No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of the right to enter his own country."

The Palestinian people were ethnically cleansed from theirs!

the Principle of Self Determination guarantees, inter alia, the right of ownership and domicile in one's own country. The UN adopted this principle in 1947. In 1969 and thereafter, it was explicitly applied to the Palestinian People, including "the legality of the Peoples' struggle for Self-Determination and Liberation", (GAOR 2535 (xxiv), 2628 (xxv), 2672 (xxv), 2792 (xxvi)). International law demands that neither occupation nor sovereignty diminish the rights of ownership. When the Ottomans surrendered in 1920, Palestinian ownership of the land was maintained. The land and property of the refugees remains their own and they are entitled to return to it.

The Palestinian people were ethnically cleansed from theirs!

Paragraph 11 of UN General Assembly Resolution 194 on December 11, 1948 states:
"the [Palestinian] refugees wishing to return to their homes and live at peace with their neighbors should be permitted to do so at the earliest practicable date, and that compensation should be paid for the property of those choosing not to return and for loss of or damage to property which, under principles of international law or in equity, should be made good by the Governments or authorities responsible."

The Palestinian people were ethnically cleansed from theirs!

Israel's admission to the UN was conditional on its acceptance of UN resolutions including 194. Denying the right of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and lands is a war crime and an act of aggression which deserves action by the international community. The international community can apply sanctions on Israel until it complies with international law.

No matter how many setbacks the Palestinian peoples cause shall prevail because their cause is just.

Never give up. Never give in, and ‘Never Again.’

  1. excellent analysis well said

  2. Hello and thank you for taking the time to read what I wrote. I first noticed that I hadn't done a good editing job; much was repeated. I must have hit paste twice, or when I was editing didn't remove redundant sections.

    For that, I thank you. I just went over it.

    The only thing I would say is that being human I reserve the right to change my mind, or opinions as I learn more. And, urge you to write as well, for we all learn from each other.

    All the Best,
