I think it’s time to stop being stupid. The drive from Vancouver, Kanada to Sandpoint, North Idaho was long. Traveling through such a beautiful landscape makes me wonder how some can be so disconnected from reality, but between the Grand Coulee Dam and this ad (above) that just went up on some Portland buses, it makes me wonder what planet some people are really living on.
Let’s start with the ad. Really, it’s so offensive, it’s funny. But I think it betrays the key mindset behind settler-colonialism in all it’s forms, that being, it just won’t work unless one group of people is dehumanized and another seen as Supreme. Israel has succeeded where Hitler failed in creating a purely racist State. Now, I do think Jewish people have an Ancestral connection to the land in the Levant, and should live there if they want to. Most don’t. Jewish people were living there the whole time between 70 CE and 1948 CE, but never once has that land been inhabited by only one Nation. Even King David bought the land to build the temple, he didn’t steal it, and he didn’t drive out the “heathen”, nor did the Old Testament tribes, even when the were told to commit genocide when the land was taken the first time. The concept of a Jewish state is just over one hundred years old, invented by the atheist Zionists in the late 19th century. “Israel” the State never existed prior to 1948, and the Nation of Israel is a completely different story. The land has always been a shared land, and it always should be.
The best book I’ve read on Israel/Palestine is Whose Land? Whose Promise? by Christian author Gary M Burge. He clearly shows how unfounded the ideologies of Zionism and Christian Zionism are, from a spiritual perspective, not just political. And I’m not a supporter of a Palestinian state or patriarchal monotheism in any form, but I think it’s important to see the connections between all land-stealing and genocide so we can all avoid being reactionary, heartless, and stupid.
So when proponents of Zionism start making distinctions between “civilized” and “savage”, we can all enjoy an some lucidity. Here in Cascadia, the “civilized” settlers created an Occupied Territories of “savage” land. In the Levant, the “civilized” settlers have created an Occupied Territories of “savage” land. Racism is just the fabricated ideology to justify theft of peoples homes and genocide. So when we decolonize, we are not driving any “race” from the land or inventing a State as a “nation”. Many Nations can share one place and still remain distinct Nations, this was true in the Levant for millennia until a racist State was imposed on the Land, and Cascadia will be a land of many Nations once the totalitarian State stops hiding behind the guise of “multiculturalism” and we all bring it down.
I saw the Grand Coulee Dam for the first time. You really can’t understand it until you see it in real life. A monument to thieves, once the biggest structure in the world, now outdone by the Wall imprisoning Occupied Palestine. And don’t get me started on check points and “unlawful” searches and seizures, because they’re perfectly legal here too, as is assassination of citizens through the NDAA.
So lets stop being in denial. There is no “jewish” media, just the civilized media and the savage media. And there is no war on terror, drugs, or poverty. Just the war of the civilized against the savage. And the”civilized” is just the first lie of them all, the original racism. We’re all really one big savage family.
So in any war between the civilized and savage humanity, support savage humanity
Free Cascadia. Free Palestine. Free Tibet. Free Israel. Defeat Civilization
