Terrorism: Cutting Through The BS


Julius Sequerra

A dear friend (a retired physicist who’s awakened to 9/11 truth, but is still geopolitically asleep) recently commented over lunch on how dangerous these “Muslim terrorists” are as he fearfully pondered which American target these madmen might attack next.

I asked him, “So tell me: who are the Americans these crazy Muslims have attacked thus far?”

Confused look followed by dead silence.

Such, my friends, is the power of media brainwashing.

For others like my friend who’ve yet to awaken to what’s really going on in the world, and the reality behind this phony ongoing “Global War On Terror”, I thought I should serve some food for thought.

Since Iran is now considered the Muslim bad guy du jour as we prepare for an invasion of that land of evildoers for “hating and killing Americans” and posing a “threat to America’s national security and to world peace”, let’s take a moment to consider the facts.

Since the 1979 Iranian revolution and the downfall of the US Puppet Ruler, the Shah, Iran has been an Islamic state. In that interval of time, 1979 to the present, Iran has not unilaterally invaded or attacked another country. Not once. People of all religions live in peace in Iran — even Jews, who find life so comfortable in Iran they have refused huge incentives by the government of Israel to emigrate.

In fact, Iran has not unilaterally attacked or invaded another country in TWO THOUSAND YEARS. [NB: The war with Iraq was purely defensive: it was Saddam who suddenly decided to invade Iran.]

In this same period of time, Israel, a self-declared Jewish state that continues to occupy illegally seized land, has launched the following attacks unilaterally, and unprovoked:

  • Iraq (1981): Israel bombed the power station at Osirak, claiming it was a clandestine weapons factory. Subsequent examination of the ruins following the 2003 invasion proved Israel had lied.
  • Lebanon 1982: Israel invaded Lebanon. This led to the Massacres at Sabra and Shatilla.
  • Gaza & Nablus (2003): Israel staged incursions into Gaza and Nablus.
  • Syria (2007): Israel bombed Syria, again insisting they were destroying a clandestine weapons laboratory. Again there is no evidence to support Israel’s claims.
  • Lebanon (2006): Israel attacked Lebanon, killing 1200, mostly civilians, several UN observers, and littering the landscape with land mines on their way out.
  • Gaza (2008): Israel again raided Gaza, killing over 100. Hamas agreed to a cease fire and kept it for 6 months until November 4, when Israel again attacked, killing 6 Hamas members, launching operation CAST LEAD. 1300 Gazans, mostly civilians, were killed. Israel lost 13 soldiers. Violations of international law included the use of White Phosphorus incendiary bombs against civilians and non-military targets. The United Nations investigated, but Israel refused to cooperate.
  • International Aid Flotilla (2010): Israel attacked an international aid flotilla bring food and medical supplies to Gaza in international waters. 9 people were murdered including an American from New York. Add to it the numerous assassinations such as last year’s embarrassment in Dubai, and one gets the picture, even without the overtly racist and apartheid statements coming from Israel’s rabbis.

Since my friend is a card-carrying American patriot who believes this country can do no wrong, it would be instructive to examine the activities of the World’s Number One Good Guy, flag-bearer of ‘freedom and democracy’ and savior of the world’s downtrodden. So, what were we up to during this same period?

In this same period of time, the United States, officially a secular nation but predominantly Christian, attacked:

It’s those crazy Muslims who “hate us for our freedoms” and who’re gonna get us!
