The CIA also terrorized America by
assassinating General Patton
The deadliest terrorists
The real trade of the CIA and Mossad
By Paul J. Balles*
14 June 2008
Paul J. Balles argues that intelligence agencies, like the CIA in America and
Mossad in Israel, "should have been prize winners as terrorists" because "in
dozens of situations around the world, they have indulged their love of
instilling fear in innocent people".
Mirror, mirror off the wall
Who's the deadliest of them all?
The USA and Israel both have bad habits of labelling anyone they don't like as
terrorists, when the governments of both countries are the greatest terrorists
on the planet.If the bombing, invasion and occupation of Iraq weren't terrorism
at its worst, it's only because the deaths of 4098 Americans is a more important
statistic than the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi civilians.
Add to that the displacement of a million and a half terrified civilians who
have fled Iraq and the viciousness of our terror squads becomes obvious.
The designation of resistance groups in occupied Iraq as terrorists and then
calling a murder campaign a surge for the good of Iraq is nothing more than
continuing acts of terrorism.
If frightening people into submission is part of the definition of terrorism,
the entire Arab and Islamic world has been terrorized.
The American and Israeli threat to bomb Iran for developing nuclear power is an
act of terrorism.
In Afghanistan, the US paid Pakistani bounty hunters to capture and deliver
innocent men to be sent to Guantanamo to be tortured and held prisoner in the
worst conditions for five years. Try te lling anyone with half a brain that the
threat of capture and delivery into a concentration camp like Guantanamo isn't
terrifying and they will know that your head is in the sand.
America has a long history of terrorist activities against countries its
government doesn't like. The bombing in Libya that killed Gaddafi's daughter was
nothing but a terrorist act to force Libya into submission.The support of
Israel's carnage in Lebanon, Gaza, Syria and the West Bank is outright support
of terrorism, the same kind of activity that American courts have accused Arabs,
like Palestinian Sami Al-Arian, of committing.
The same heinous carnage, committed by Israel, has have been nothing other than
the kind of terrorism Israel has been guilty of since its inception and the
activities of the Stern Gang, led by terrorist Menachem Begin. They terrorized a
million and a half Palestinians into leaving their homes.As icing on their
pathological cake, Israel continues to build illegal se ttlements, arm the
settlers with sophisticated weaponry and allow them to terrorize the remaining
Only the latest of these horrific misdeeds of Israeli terror involved the brutal
beating by settlers of an elderly 70-year-old shepherd, his wife and a nephew,
who were attacked by four masked men for allowing their animals to graze near
the illegal Israeli settlement of Susia (see video below).
Intelligence agencies, like the CIA in America and Mossad in Israel, should have
been prize winners as terrorists. In dozens of situations around the world, they
have indulged their love of instilling fear in innocent people, especially if
those people have little support or know too much.One would hope that the
filming of acts of terrorism would help end them by punishing the real
terrorists, no matter where they come from.
The cameras in Lebanon, however, did little to save the Lebanese from near-total
destruction of their infrastructure and thousands of deaths of innocents.Why did
the Israelis go to such extremes, thinking they would destroy Hezbollah? So the
Israelis might terrorize the entire Lebanese community in retaliation for the
capture of two Israeli soldiers.
Let's get this straight: resistance to occupation or bullying is not terrorism.
It's resistance. Resistance doesn't become terrorism because the real terrorists
continue their brutal attacks and propaganda campaigns against the resistance.
Resistance is resistance. Thank God that some people have the courage to resist.
