Alan Hart : Excuse while I vomit

Mark Regev is horribly compelling as a PR performer. The appearance of Mark Regev, spin doctor in chief for the Israeli government, has become customary every time that country is under fire from the international media. — Ruth Sunderland, The Observer, UK.

Israel is NOT like the Western nations. It is a brutal occupying power, and the cause of the incoming rockets is its occupation and on-going colonization and ethnic cleansing of the West Bank including East Jerusalem, and its blockade of the Gaza Strip. That plus the fact that Israel’s leaders have no interest in peace on terms the Palestinians could accept.



By Alan Hart


I imagine I am not the only one who feels the need to vomit (dictionary definition – “to throw up the contents of the stomach through the mouth”) when Israel’s Goebbels justifies the Zionist state’s ferocious and monstrously disproportionate attacks by air and sea on the Israeli-blockaded Gaza Strip, the prison camp which is home to 1.5 million besieged and mainly impoverished Palestinians. The Israeli to whom I am referring is, of course, Australian-born Mark Regev, the prime minister’s spokesman, for which read spin doctor. The more I see and hear him in action, the more it seems to me that he makes Nazi Germany’s propaganda chief look like an amateur.

In a piece for The Observer on 6 June 2010, Ruth Sutherland wrote the following. “If the men from Mars ever wanted to manufacture a PR man, they would model their robot on Regev. No matter how formidable the interviewer, or how aggressive the questioning, he never buckles under pressure. His disarming Aussie accent and unfailing politeness – he calls interviewers ‘Sir’ and uses phrases like ‘I beg to disagree’ – almost lulls listeners into overlooking his aggression. He is always regretful about death and horror – he regrets that the non-Israeli victims brought their fate on themselves. Viewers are reduced to a trance of slack-jawed amazement at what he is prepared to say with a straight face. He is unlikely to win sceptics to Israel’s cause, but as a PR performer he is horribly compelling.”

Compelling he certainly is but, as Sutherland indicated (I will be more explicit), only to Westerners and Americans in particular who have been conditioned for decades by Zionist propaganda and, as a consequence, know nothing or little worth knowing about the truth of history as it relates to the making and sustaining of the conflict in and over Palestine that became Israel.

In the immediate aftermath of Israel’s targeted assassination of Hamas’s military commander, Ahmed al-Jabari, Regev was at his best. Via the BBC and many other networks his main message to the Western nations was that Israel is just like them – democratic and civilized. “I would ask them all,” he said, “how would you act?” (respond to rocket fire from “terrorists”). By obvious implication he was saying something very like, “You would take all necessary action against the terrorists to defend and protect your people, and that’s why I am sure you will understand and support what we are doing.”

The flaw in that presentation is that Israel is NOT like the Western nations. It is a brutal occupying power, and the cause of the incoming rockets is its occupation and on-going colonization and ethnic cleansing of the West Bank including East Jerusalem, and its blockade of the Gaza Strip. That plus the fact that Israel’s leaders have no interest in peace on terms the Palestinians could accept.

Regev also appealed for Western understanding and support on the grounds that “they” (Hamas) say my country should be wiped off the map.”

That’s one of the many big, fat Zionist propaganda lies. The truth is that Hamas is firmly on the record with the statement that while it will never recognize Israel’s right to exist, it is prepared to live in peace with an Israel inside its 1967 borders.

Regev’s master, Netanyahu, was also up to his old tricks – diverting attention. He played the Iranian nuclear threat card to get Palestine off the international community’s agenda. With Israel’s next election less than 70 days away, one of his reasons for authorizing Operation Pillar of Defense was, as a report in The Times of Israel put it, “to divert public discourse from social justice to security issues and silence the government’s critics.”

The Mossad’s motto is “By way of deception, thou shall do war.”

Netanyahu obviously believes that by way of deception he can not only retain power but emerge from Israel’s next election with more power than ever. (Enough to tell Obama to go to hell if that ever becomes necessary).

The support (by default if not design) of Western governments for Israel’s latest ferocious and monstrously disproportionate attacks also makes me want to vomit.

Editor’s note:  Compelling videos by Anthony Lawson which indict Israel for its daily abuses against non Jews and  the horrors it has inflicted on Gaza and which it continues to inflict through its illegal and genocidal siege against the devastated and overpopulated strip of land, with the support of the US and European Governments and the complicity of the Zionist owned Media :

    Netanyahu and Barak wanton slaughter, sadism and cruelty towards Palestinian children, women and men extends holding the title number one top offender Israeli Child Sex Slavery Trafficking including accomplishments Israel leads Human Organ Trafficking, hearts, kidneys and livers.

    A few weeks before Netanyahu and Barak’s catchy slogan Iron Dome deceptive trickery, an Anat Hoffman is praying at Israel’s Wailing Wall confronted by Israeli police arrested placed in handcuffs, chaining her legs, dragged across the floor of the police station ordered to strip naked forced to spend the night in jail without a bed.

    Sharing a tiny cell with a young Russian alleged to be an adult appearing to be seventeen years old crying hysterically from a very small remote village in Russia forced incarceration in Tel Aviv for the past six-months denied contact with Russian Consulate or Embassy determined the teenager will remain incarcerated indefinitely.

    Citing as an excuse for criminalization-incarceration, the young woman a teenager traveled alone from a small remote village in Russia came through the most restricted borders of Israel “to solicit our men” targeted placed next to cell of Israeli inmates with the approval of Israeli police crude and lewd threatening the teenager will be gang raped to death “they detailed exactly what they would do together and each one on his own “will calm you down.” “The protracted exposure to the filthy speech of the male detainees and to Gula’s tears was one of the hardest experiences for me that I will never forget.”

    The United Nations has named Prime Minister Netanyahu and Defense Minister Barak’s Israel as the highest ranking main destination for trafficked children and women commercial sexual exploitation in particular from Russia and Ukraine. “Israel Human Trafficking Of Children From Russia” “Israel Treats Trafficked Women As Criminals.” “Israel Heads International Human Trafficking Ring” courtesy of United States Congress and Senate annual multi-million dollar American taxpayer subsidies.

    As well as Israel notorious forced labor, migrating from China, Romania, Africa, Turkey, Nepal, India and Sri Lanka, open theft of passports, restriction in movement, non-payment of wages, threats and physical intimidation.

    Leading Israeli underworld Nissim Alperon head-pimp runs such “complex” and extensive human trafficking network abducting children and teenagers and young adults from small towns and villages in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova and Uzbekistan.

    Head Israeli pimp Nissim Alperon lives a few blocks from Netanyahu’s “Prime Minister Residence In Jerusalem” security comparable to the Pentagon, staging numerous assassination affronts on Nissim such as latest false psyop blowing up his car in front of his house including for the past decade Nissim’s 8 assassination attempts always walking away without a scratch on his body.

    According to Rachael Benziman legal advisor to the Israel’s Women Network, “Israel has no law against trafficking children and women and even though teenager Gula from a very small village in northern Russia is criminalized and incarcerated given approval by police threatened to be gang raped to death in Tel Aviv jail “for soliciting Israeli men “there is no law against prostitution.”

    “3,000 to 5,000 children and women are sex trafficked into Israel per year, the MOSAD and IDF are infamous for scrutinizing, searching and detaining every single individual requiring permission to enter the country.”

    “Arrested children, teenagers and young adult women sex slaves are considered illegal workers. The Israeli men who abduct and bring them to Israel are never arrested. Children, teenagers and young women are held in apartments, bars and brothels bought by 25 men a day, the majority are members of Netanyahu and Barak’s Israeli Defense Force military personnel. Beaten, starved and gang raped in order to be forced to work or any resistors are given to the Israeli police for handling.

    “Children, teenagers and young women” trafficked from Eastern Europe are stripped and sold naked as slaves to Tel Aviv “Traders” Human Auctions for $8,000-$10,000, collaboration between Israeli police, traders and brothel owners is involved.” (Michael Specter Israeli Human Traffickers)

    “Routine beatings and sexual abuse, traffickers and pimps earn $75,000-$100,000 from each child, teenager and young woman trafficked, a 500 million dollar sex industry.

    Bibi Netanyahu refuses to ratify 2000 United Nations Trafficking Protocol On Drugs And Crimes Chapter XVIII Penal Matters To Prevent, Suppress, And Punish Trafficking In Persons, Especially Women And Children. Supplementing the United Nations Convention Against Transnational Organized Crime.

    Protocol adopted by resolution 15 November 2000, fifty-fifth session of the General Assembly Of The United Nations consistent with Netanyahu refuses signatory on International Atomic Energy Agency Nuclear Non Proliferation staunchly-defiantly refuses inspection of biological and chemical and nuclear arsenal weapons of mass destruction, with impunity freely applies chemical agents white phosphorous application to Palestinian children, women and men burns flesh to the bone is disintegrated.

    Netanyahu’s wife Sarah is repeatedly reported abusing more recently a Nepali caretaker for her 96-year old father, the Nepali a-female asserts the Netanyahus refused to feed her, cursed at her, for the past two years restricted her movement refused vacation time, refused to pay her when asked for her July wages, Sarah Netanyahu reacted violently refused to pay her causing the Nepali caretaker to fall and break her fingers.

    The Hotline For Migrant Workers And Physicians For Human Rights proceeds to investigate affirming “Netanyahu Prime Minister residence in Jerusalem raising suspicions about worker conditions constituting the denial of the freedom of the worker’s movements and exploitation of the worker’s weakness exerting unfounded physical, physiological and psychological stress and pressure on workers” a pattern from firing an elderly man working as a gardener the same month a former housekeeper Lillian Peretz files a lawsuit against Bibi and Sarah Netanyahu.

    Bibi and Sarah Netanyahu and Ehud Barak demonstrate their devotion ardent loyalty and observance “Our race is the master race. We are divine gods on this planet.” “Other races are considered as human excrement.” “Our destiny is to rule over the inferior races. Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader with a “rod of iron.” “The masses will lick our feet and serve as our slaves.” Menachem Begin

    Imposing Talmudic Judaism written by 70 rabbis during captivity in Babylon replacing the Torah the book of Moses. And in actuality Netanyahu and Barak’s reference to Iron Dome is to permanently encase Gaza and Bethlehem Palestinian Proper.

    Anat Hoffman a fifty-seven year old praying and reading the Torah at the Wailing Wall October 15, 2012, arrested, handcuffed, legs shackled, dragged across the floor of Israeli police station ordered to strip naked spending the night in a tiny jail without a bed, no U.S. hardcore mainstream media coverage just mainstream media lite and independent media report “thrown in jail with three other women a Russian woman “prostitute” and car thief” no description of a third woman a complete distortion of the facts only sharing a tiny cell with inferring a Russian teenager crying hysterically omitting Israeli police endorse and condone the teenager is threaten by Israeli men gang raped to death.

    Because this website refuses to allow me to post directly below the comment except as facebook – I post here:
    To Lieberman – your comment is above – and humanity speaks to you below….

    oh Jake – your vitriolic spirit is showing. It is not pleasing to true humanity. Get consciousness, and then you will see that the ilk of zionists are ultimately doomed. Bless Palestine, forever. Amen.

  3. JT  November 23, 2012 at 9:54 am

    Bless Palestine. The land will return as sure as full consciousness will return to humanity. When? When we progress. But for now, the zionist bankers continue to pull the veil over consciousness for the unenlightened.

    Having seen the video referred to by Alan Hart in this article, I immediately responded by emailing the network, in this case the ABC, a government funded network in Australia and expressed in no uncertain terms my disgust that they could have even allowed the Israeli spin to be shown at all.

    But show it they did in all its spin, from a polished performer, Mark Regev, sadly having had some connection with this country at some time, adding nothing to our reputation as a result. Regev is known everywhere as a smooth but lying spokesman for the Israeli murderer, Netanyahu, one of the most hated people on the planet. He has honed his craft well, using the same old polished phrases to talk down any unsuspecting presenter, as was the case in this country, a Leigh Sales, presenter on a program called 7.30 report, usually a program with some merit but on this and some other occasions, short on diligence. Mind you, this is the same network that programmed the Mavi Marmara, the Jane Corbin BBC version of Zionist fiction, again with no diligence as to its truthfulness. We all know the story there.

    To give her some consideration in this matter, Sales startled looks and dumbfounded responses, all along the same lines as we have come to expect with any interview with Regev, searching questions, or lack of same, may have been due to the new broom at the ABC, a new Chairman named James Spigelman, who may have insisted that this Israeli spin merchant be given the time on this program. Who really knows but that the way things work. Spigelman was a recent appointment by our very own Prime Minister, a twenty year captive of the Melbourne Zionists with a Cabinet full of fellow-travellers. They would have got a kick out of last night’s charade.

    The US response may still be a hangover from the pre-election days, not quite ready to show any initiatives, but just enough to ensure that the Zionists do not arm 30,000 young untrained hotheads, products of Israeli brainwashing, with automatic weapons to engage in senseless marauding through the streets of Gaza. Sadly, that is probably what will happen as they have had no statement from the weak and timid US to stop them, still under the influences of Obama’s AIPAC handlers and all that means. Be thankful for small mercies,….Romney would have his soldiers at the gates of Teheran by now at the direction of Israel, probably commanded by an Israeli toy General.

    It is clear that such an act, that is the attacks on Gaza and the Regev-type lying PR exercise, were on the drawing board before the US elections as was the knowledge of the be-medalled Petraeus and his dalliance, likely to be the basis for a major blockbuster movie from the Weinstein Brothers, of course.

    For Israel, it is all just a matter of timing and telling their sycophant, the US, to do what they’re told, or else.
