The Recurring Deception

Adolf Hitler burned down the German parliament building and blamed it on terrorists so he could become Chancellor. Then he burned down a German radio station and blamed it on Poland to justify an invasion. The rest is history. This recurring pattern was eloquently illustrated in the original Star Wars saga. Senator Palpatine got the trade federation to attack his planet and he used that attack to get himself elected Chancellor. Then he used another attack to suspend the free republic and become a galactic empire. The rest is history. It is an timely allegory for our day. History tends to repeat itself until we learn from it.

Then there was Operation Northwoods. A plan submitted by Allen Dulles, the Director of the CIA, to kill innocent civilians on American soil and blame it on Cuba to gain public support for an invasion. That plan was real. The declassified document is part of history. It was signed by the Joint Chiefs of Staff. If Kennedy hadn't vetoed the insane plot the US government would have actually implemented it and would have killed some of their own civilians to gain public support for an invasion exactly like Hitler did during the war.

Then there was 9/11. The list of discrepancies with the official version of that heinous event keeps growing to this day. No planes hit the third tower which also collapsed at freefall speed into its own blueprint just like a controlled demolition. Experts in the field of controlled demolition state the only way a tower can collapse at freefall speed into it's own blueprint is if the load bearing beams are blown out just like a controlled demolition. Ever since that horrific event, the main stream media entered the twilight zone.

Even the Lockerbie bombing was suspect. CSIS provided the explosives for the Air India bombing. The recurring deception surrounds terrorist attacks that have no real motive. There was a bombing in London but the evidence showed the bomb was placed under the train not left in a bag on the train. The soldier stabbing in London was absolutely surreal. Buyer Beware.

Recently there was another "terrorist" attack in London. Another lone wolf with no motive. They came up with the lone wolf scam because they couldn't get away with falsely accusing actual organizations because they would deny responsibility like how the Taliban asked what proof do you have that Bin Laden did 911? The confession video didn't even look like him.

Don't get me wrong. The recent attack in London was horrible - people died. That was very real. I'm just saying the prime suspects are once again tied to the intelligence community just like Operation Northwoods. The whole idea of a conservative MP just happen to be near by and was photographed doing cpr on one of the victims is just a bit too much to swallow.

So the Islamophobes seize the opportunity to pass around a picture of a young woman wearing a hijab right after the attack. If you look at the expression on her face she looks terrified. What on earth do you think is going through her mind? First it's shock of seeing people dead or injured. Then it's fear because she knows everyone is going to look at her hijab and blame her when it is obvious she had absolutely nothing to do with it.

Back in the day, I have no doubt there used to be lots of Palestinians who were bat sh*t crazy and celebrated when civilians were killed. That was a long time ago and was because they were stuck right in the middle of the conflict. It was the you kill one of ours and we kill one of yours mentality. Belfast was like that for years. Nobody feels that way any more. The Irish Proclamation saw through that scam and declares:

"The Republic guarantees religious and civil liberty, equal rights and equal opportunities to all its citizens, and declares its resolve to pursue the happiness and prosperity of the whole nation and of all its parts, cherishing all of the children of the nation equally, and oblivious of the differences carefully fostered by an alien Government, which have divided a minority from the majority in the past." It was the alien government that fostered the sectarian violence.

In contrast, I just stepped out briefly to the store and ran into my Syrian neighbour wearing her full hijab going for a walk with one of her young daughters. She had a big smile on her face and says Hello, how are you? I am good she says with a big smile on her face. She is so proud that she is starting to learn English. So are her kids. They are learning English faster than I'm learning Arabic. I went to the friendship centre to take a class in Arabic. It was fun but I had to cheat. I had to write all the words with English characters phonetically. Unlike French, Arabic is a completely different alphabet. That's very hard for me. I totally understand her frustration learning English at first because she didn't know the alphabet. Now she's doing great.

The other day we bumped into each other and she introduced her new friend to my daughter and I. A local caucasian woman from Surrey was a volunteer and was helpig her learn English. With her full hijab on the neighbor put her arm around her and said this is my new sister with a big smile on her face. The volunteer no doubt felt the love and appreciation of her service. This is the way it's supposed to be. Like the Jewish Rabbi that spoke at the Muslim Mosque in Vancouver. This is the Vancouver I was born and raised in. When people come here they retain their cultural heritage but they leave their differences and animosity behind.

  1. yes much is made of these "lone wolf" attacks such as the one in London. governments like to put it down to "terrorists" letting the public come to their own conclusions immediately. Even newscasters give it a nice terrorist spin as was done the other night here on local news. Most of these people who do these types of things are just plain bat shit crazy, no more or less crazy than the white angry guy who goes into a theatre and shoots up the place or the any act of violence.

    it so much easier to get along with people than to hate or avoid them. By the time your neighbour's children are grown they may have become experts on French cuisine. That is my kind of Canada.

    One could say if you're wearing a hijab, at least you don't have to worry about your hair. Some women find that kind of liberating. There are all sorts of ways to look at customs and who are we to say our way is best.
