Medialens tells us that the Zionist lobby does it again! Are we surprised? Oh yes, when was it last all Western leaders praised freedom of expression by walking through Paris? Will even one of them now stand up and demand that this conference be held anyhow? What is it the West’s academic community boats about in comparison with other cultures – isn’t it freedom of our universities, the free search for knowledge and the right to express differing opinions on analytical issues – in contrast to politically controlled academic work? Why is it that practically every derogatory terms can freely be used about, say, Russians, Serbs, Muslims, Iranians etc. and their countries without anyone raising an eyebrow? Why do Zionists again and again promote a censorship that undermines the finest principles (ideally speaking) of Western culture in order to stop debates about Israel? And how much anti-Semitism do Zionists risk/want to produce by actions such as forcing this conference to be cancelled?
Senator Cotton – behind the Letter of 47 – has been promoted by pro-Israeli RJC’s Singer and Adelson • LobeLog Instructive reading for anyone who thinks – because they are manipulated by Western mainstream media – that economic corruption in politics and oligarchs are only found in Russia and China and not in the so-called democracy of the United States. It seems that not only was the – backfiring – speech of PM Netanyahu in the US Congress a Jewsih lobby-financed operation, so was this young Senator’s ignorant and counterproductive letter campaign. If you’ve seen him talk about Iran you’ll understand that he has no knowledge and less respect for other people – e.g. saying that all Iranians are extremists etc. It is very sad to witness the infighting and moral decay – and corruption – of the American political system. Even the best Constitution can be misused or circumvented if the intensions are malicious enough. Whether you like it, the whole affair is indicative of the weakening and eventual fall of the U.S. Empire. It’s demise will, I believe, be good for both the American republic and the world.
