False Brain News

With the exception of Uncle Fetzer's weekly show, I haven't listened to RBN "Paranoid" radio much, but some of their other hosts are starting to interview conspiracy theorists, so I have caught a couple episodes of "False Flag News" with Dan Abrahams. Fortunately as an MP3 you can skip past all the ads for the American Free Press, survivalist food supplies, and natural remedies to combat chemtrails (I am not making those up).

Last Friday he interviewed "Scholar" Kevin Barrett. He mostly discussed the impending invasion of Iran by 2,200 Marines and the US Coast Guard (it doesn't make much sense to me either), comparing the buildup of US forces in the Gulf to the mythical massive buildup of American and British forces in Uzbekistan before 9/11. Abrahams repeatedly mispronounces it "Uz-beak-a-stan". As a whole he humorously mispronounces more names than George W. Bush at a WTO conference.

The most ridiculous bit is while discussing Barrett's religious 9/11 organization:

Abrahams: As I see it right now, Muslims specifically are reminiscent of Jews during the period after Kristallnacht in Germany and during the Holocaust being used as a scapegoat for everything that goes bad.

Yeah, this is rich, coming from a radio show which runs ads for newspapers started by Holocaust deniers.

A few minutes later Barrett laments that Muslims now don't like the Jews:

One of the things that really bothers me is the way 9/11 created more and more bigotry, not just against Muslims, but on the part of Muslims against Jews. There is a sort of tendency to blame the Jews for 9/11, among Muslims the first thought was "Oh it must be those Zionists"

OK, and the Muslims were favorable toward the Jewish faith before 9/11?

Yes, you ignorant shills - the Jews and Muslims lived together in harmony for millennia before the NWO made 9/11 happen. Now they're at each others' throats all the time!

Oh, wait... I just read Judges in The Bible. Nevermind.

c'mon now, the Arab-Israeli war, Suez War, 6 day war, war of attrition, yom kippur war, lebanon war, various suicide bombings, and the recent Hamas/Hezbollah war were nothing more than lovefests. They absolutely loved each other until 9/11, an attack having nothing to do with Israel, caused them both to despise each other.

It is not wholly about faith with the exception of the Temple Mount, it is about political realism, geography, and political borders. Religion is a very simple way to moblize the masses to kill the perceived enemy for God, Yahweh, Budda, Allah, blah blah blah.

Is it politically realistic to create so much mayhem over a tiny strip of desert with virtually no natural resources? The Arabs have all they need in terms of oil and land. Their push to reclaim Israel is purely religious. To them it is the natural conclusion to the Holy War they've maintained against the Jews since the founding of Islam.

Gentlemen, please, let's try to keep this civil and not create disagreement where it doesn't exist. Swing Dangler was simply saying - and I agree with him - that the Arab/Israeli conflict is not wholly about faith. And religion can be a simple way to motivate against the perceived enemy, something most religions have exhibited at one time or another.

I'm not trying to pick a fight here, just expressing a dissenting opinion. I think the Arab/Israeli conflict, at least on the Arab side, is wholly an issue of faith. I don't believe Arab leaders are just manipulating religous beliefs to advance some sectarian geographic agenda. I believe they are advancing a purely religous agenda: the expulsion of unbelievers from their holy land.

If the way I expressed that opinion seemed uncivil, I don't know what to say about that. I stridently disagree with sd's remark that the conflict is based on "political realism", and I expressed my opinion accordingly.

Why would you want to skip past the ads? The ads can be the funniest part. "Professional knife sharpeners are always in demand. Train to become a professional knife sharpener and you can earn a steady income... send off for your knife sharpener's instruction booklet today!"

No no, there was nothing specific, I just had vague visions of it descending into a furious flame war. Hope nobody's been upset. This sort of thing's not my strong point... I think I need to retrain as a kinfe-sharpener or something.
