We're All Palestinians Now


            Don't bother paying a financial adviser to tell you how to get rich.  Just do what the white European Jewish invaders of Palestine do:  steal everything, lie about it, and kill anyone who tries to stop you.  That is, in a nutshell, the history of modern-day Israel.  The rest is just details.  Unfortunately, this same blueprint is now being used inside the U.S. by groups of rich white men who are stealing our national treasures starting with stealing our cities, lying about it, and killing anyone who gets in their way, anyone who "does not belong."  Just ask Michael Brown or Eric Garner. 

            Going back to 1948, some white European Jewish men (calling themselves "zionists") decided they could probably get away with stealing land in Palestine because (1) so many Jews had just been killed in Europe, so the world felt a little guilty; and (2) who cares about a bunch of Arabs anyway?  The European invaders and thieves bet right.  They attacked a series of villages and towns throughout Palestine, brutalized the people, engaged in barbaric slaughter to terrorize the citizens, ran them out, then proclaimed to the world that the land belonged to the Jews and to nobody else.

            Since that time, Israel has stolen most of the rest of the land of Palestine, using the same formula time and again.  First, they proclaim that God intends them to have the land.  Then they knock down the homes and buildings, run off the people who live there, build walls to prevent the remaining residents from having access to jobs, land, sustenance, and wait for them to leave.  Or die.

            Did anyone believe the zionists really had a longing to own some desert in the middle east, or that is the be-all and end-all of their ambitions?  A little piece of desert to call home?  Of course not.  They have perfected the formula inside Palestine, and now they, and their friends, are applying it throughout the world.

            When we look at Chicago, with Rahm Emanuel at the head, what comes to mind?  He is shutting down public schools, eliminating public services to poor, black neighborhoods.  For what purpose?  Apparently to push the poor black people out of the city so their neighborhoods can be taken over and "redeveloped," taken over by real estate developers, and flipped for billions in profits.
            Look at New York City.  It is no longer a city that belongs to the people of the U.S.  The blueprint has been applied to NYC, neighborhood by neighborhood, buildings taken over and removed from rent control by "privatizing" rental units through condo and co-op conversion.  Then the rents are jerked up so that entire areas are unaffordable, and the poor people (including the black and hispanics) are forced out of the city.  Temporarily, they may find rentals in Brooklyn or Queens, but those properties are next.  Brooklyn, in fact, has now become more unaffordable, as one neighborhood after the next is taken over by developers and the working people are forced out.  This is ethnic cleansing without a sole racial focus, since anyone who is not rich is forced out.  These redevelopment plans are financed partly by the city, by government funds, which are essentially used to benefit the rich who are forcing out everyone else.

            Look at Detroit.  First, the Wall Street-run "free trade" associations wrote up a law that would ban tariffs, and encourage U.S. corporations to take American jobs to third world countries to be done by slave, child, and prison labor.  The jobs were taken away, which means the tax base of the city is gone.  The city has more social service costs are more of the residents are in need of assistance, so Wall Street moves in, makes government loans, then throws the city into bankruptcy and "forecloses" on everything.


            Most of the people of Detroit have been driven out of that city.  For the few who remain, those who are too poor to move, the sick, the elderly, the city is shutting off residential water, just like Israel shut off electricity, blockaded the water access, restricts fishing, bans Palestinians from having access to the land where they grow food, and restrict food imports, to either force the Palestinians to leave or to kill them off. 


            Every ruined neighborhood, each dilapidated home, represents one family whose life has been destroyed by Wall Street and the U.S. politicians it owns.  Detroit once was a successful manufacturing hub, a place where people could find decent-paying jobs that allowed them to buy a home, send their kids to school, participate in our country with hope for the future.  All of that has been taken destroyed by Wall Street.

            It's working.  So many people have left Detroit now that the plan is near success.  Wall Street funds, investors representing rich people, including Israelis, are moving in and buying up whole blocks of buildings in Detroit, so it can be re-built, and all the value of that city, all the land and the homes, driven into ruin by these predators, will now be stolen by the same vultures.


            What were the alternatives, by the way?  The same thing the federal government did to save the banks, save the rich, save Wall Street:  help them.  Save Detroit, a major American city.  Save the people of that city.  Their jobs have been taken away, so the government should move in, create tribunals to get the community involved in laying out plans for the future.  If the people need training, then set up more community colleges and give them training.  The federal government could certainly provide incentives to businesses and industries to locate to Detroit.  We need solar and wind, so why not build it in Detroit?  These things could have happened, and should have happened.  Instead of the U.S. government giving away billions of dollars of working people's money to guarantee the bonuses of the scum that run Goldman-Sachs, they should have helped the rest of us. But they didn't.    

            It's also happening in San Francisco.  Same blueprint, same pattern.  They take over housing, eliminate rent control, drive the working people out.  People who have lived in San Francisco for decades are forced to leave, often in old age, because their building has been bought by some speculator. 

It is a simple matter, by the way, to stop this devastation of the lives of the majority of the American people.  First, all cities must have a large percentage of housing subject to rent control, regardless if the unit is owned by a hedge fund or by an individual.  Second, we need a living wage for all our people regardless of where they live.  And third, we need a full employment law so that any American who is willing and able is guaranteed a job. 

            The major cities of this country are being taken over by the rich, and U.S. working people are being driven out into the suburbs.  All of the benefits of the cities which were funded by working people -- the schools, public transportation, hospitals, culture, art, museums -- are being seized by the rich, while the rest of us are forced to move further out of the cities, into the impoverished suburbs.  The suburbs are now becoming the centers of poverty and crime.  The rich, with the wealth they stole from the rest of us, will not suffer from the problems, and will not contribute to improve the lives of people in the suburbs because they don't live there anymore.  They are turning our major cities into gated communities from which we are excluded.  Don't be surprised if there are armed police patrolling the borders, in time, to keep us out unless we have a special permit to enter. 

            We're all Palestinians now.

  1. I wish I could say that this is a bunch of crap. That you're just some conspiracy theorist with a chip on your shoulder.
    But I can't and you're right. The US is being chopped up and sold off to those with boatloads of money. And it's all made possible by our monetary system and the Federal Reserve (a foreign owned corporation). The saddest part of it all—all the lives that were lost defending this country and our way of life were all for nothing.
