Israel’s Toxic Power in the US


Dr. Marc Lemont Hill, the recently fired CNN contributor should be glad and happy he is alive and escaped a lynching by angry Israel-First mobs and escaped the Hollywood-sponsored IDF firing squad.

No one in America dares to criticize Israel who hopes to survive in a job or profession. Anyone who ever doubts the toxic power and influence Israel has over US media, politics, academic and financial institutions should think twice. Criticizing Israel and its military and settlers’ occupation is not a crime, nor is anti-Semitism. Those who think so have a mental problem.

The immediate dismissal of Marc Lemont Hill by CNN comes after he made a statement at the UN in which he called for a free Palestine from sea to river, which to the sensitive Zionist forces in the US is deemed racist and anti-Semitic rhetoric which calls for Israel’s destruction.

No one in CNN or other major networks wants to hear any calls for justice for Israelis and for Palestinians. Marc Lemont Hill’s message was “a call for justice, both in Israel and for the West Bank/Gaza.”

He stated, “I support Palestinian freedom; I support Palestinian self-determination. I am deeply critical of Israeli policies and practices.”

What in blazes is so wrong and offensive to Zionist America in those words? Nothing.

Though I did search and review some of the posts on who’s who in American media, I chose not mention it here, leaving it to the readers to do their own search to see that the mainstream media is a powerful tool for Israel-Firsters.

The last time I checked First Amendment cases, even hate speech is a protected speech. In a unanimous vote of the US Supreme Court in the case of Matal v Tam, no hate speech is exception except as “such speech is directed to inciting imminent lawless action”. Marc Lemont Hill’s statement certainly does not come close to hate speech and certainly did not create any immanent lawless action. However, CNN and major media in the US including the US Congress are rewriting the First Amendment by passing laws that make criticism of Israel a felony punishable by fine and imprisonment.

Leading the charge for such legislation is none other than the leading liberal Senate Democratic Leader, Chuck Schumer, an Israel-Firster who is using his position to erode freedom of speech, association and assembly, which are basic rights of the American people, in favor of his love and first loyalty, Israel.

With so much power and influence over America, the Israeli lobby and Zionist money machines have made major inroad in state politics, managing to get many states to rewrite freedom to choose “boycotting” Israel a felony, and denying any company or business or individuals that support the BDS (boycott of illegally and criminal Israeli settlements) from doing business with the state.

Now let us compare boycotting armed, illegal trespassing settlements on stolen Palestinian properties and boycotting the Israeli Military Occupation versus the outrage over North Carolina’s decision on the use of “gender neutral toilets”.

Fifty blankety-blank years of armed settler occupation, over 550 humiliating security checkpoints which millions of Palestinians must face going through every day as they are processed like cattle. Fifty years of arbitrary arrest and administrative imprisonment for months and years without trial or public evidence, while over one million Palestinians have been “guests” of Israeli military jails. There have been tens of thousands of home demolitions under the pretense that the homes were “built without permits”, as Palestinians would have to wait for decades to get a home-building or remodeling license. But criminally trespassing settlers can simply seize Palestinian lands and build; they can raid towns and villages; desecrate churches and mosques. They can even set young teenage Palestinians on fire by forcing them to drink gasoline and then setting them on fire.

Mr. Schumer and many American liberal hypocrites are upset about North Carolina’s toilet issue, but not bothered or offended about 50 years of military occupation by Israel.

Of course it is OK to boycott North Carolina over its “toilet issue”, but why is it not okay to boycott Israeli settlements and their products? In response to North Carolina, PayPal canceled a $2.6 billion project; Ringo Star canceled his concert; and the NCAA canceled its tournament, with Costar, Adidas and Deutsche Bank following suit. Every one became upset with calls to boycott North Carolina over the choice of a toilet, but they seem unmoved by the cruelest military and longest occupation in modern history.

There are too many cases of professors losing their jobs because they criticize Israel and support Palestinian rights for a free state, with many rich donors putting pressure on leading academic institutions to make sure pro-Palestinian professors have no place or tenure, and that pro-Palestinian groups can not exercise their freedom of speech and assembly on college campuses. Otherwise, accusations of terrorism and anti-Semitism fly all over the place. The anti-Palestinian groups are fully funded by rich and powerful American Zionist Jews. Even the State of Israel sponsors and pays for its agents on college campuses.

Let us remember the words of Voltaire – “to learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize”. I think the case is clear. Israel rules.

PS. Recently Hollywood stars held a benefit dinner for the IDF, raising $33 million in one night. Of course these “stars” never did sponsor such a benefit for the American GI’s USO. They simply have their loyalty with the IDF, but not the American soldiers.

  1. On Twitter today the Israeli leading newspaper refering to the firing of Dr. Hill stated” In the US Media, Israel is untouchable. I think our American media will be more open and honest about Israel if its executives and leading reporters were Israelis not American Jews.

    • Thank You Professor Jadallah, good to hear a Ft. Lewis “Graduate” made good!
      I hope you will be a regular contributor to VT!
      Keep fighting the good fight!

  2. To show how powerful Israel in the US, deciding US domestic and international policies. VP Pence stated Israel is not a party issue, it is a domestic national issue. The White House have an all Jewish Zionist team working and preparing the proposed peace plan ( deal of the century). Membership of this team is exclusivily Jewish/ Zionists and key sponsors to the Jewish settlements; Jared Kushner, Jason Greenblatt, David Friedman. With an all Jewish /Zionist team how can the US become an honest broker?

  3. Decent article apart from the usual misattribution of the “learn who rules over you” quote to Voltaire when it was made relatively recently by an American named Kevin Strom.

    • Sorry PhillipShahak… you are right, I rechecked it again and you are right. To bad that I quoted this man… Once again, sorry about that and my apologies to all the readers.

  4. Israel did 9/11/01:
    • “Larry Silverstein – is a Jewish American businessman from New York. Silverstein obtained a 99 year lease on the entire world trade center complex on 24 July, 2001. [3] The towers were in fact close to worthless, being filled with asbestos, [4] yet Silverstein “felt a compelling urge to own them”. Silverstein had breakfast in “Windows on the World” restaurant (located in North Tower 107th Floor) every morning. [5] but broke this routine on the morning of 11 September 2001. Silverstein’s two children, who also worked in the WTC, were also absent from work that day. Larry Silverstein was paid a little over $4.5 Billion in insurance money as a result of the destruction of the WTC complex. [6] Silverstein was on personal friendship terms with Zionist media-magnate Rupert Murdoch, former Israeli president Ariel Sharon, as well as Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu. Silverstein was such good friends with Netanyahu that, according to the Israeli newspaper Haaretz he would speak with him on the phone every sunday. [7]
    • Video – Where was Larry Silverstein on 9/11?”

  5. All U.S. aid to Israel in the any form, money or planes or any other form must be halted immediately. All members of Congress who are dual citizens with Israel must be expelled immediately and prevented from ever holding office again. This is a blatant conflict of interest. If you love Israel more than the U.S. move to Israel.
    These are traitors to the U.S.


    • Israel must be occupied by an international armed force to forcibly move it back to its original borders and surrender all the stolen lands back to the original owners. It does not know how to live among civilized nations and follow the Golden Rule. It only learns the hard way.

    • The current recently approved UN resolution would be a good time to do exactly that: Impose international military rule on Israel to teach them some sorely needed lessons in how to live among civilized nations of the world.
