The Bridge on the River Jordan

So Abbottoir (formerly known as Australia) is now lining up with 8 other countries at the UN, including South Sudan and Papua New Guinea, in abstaining from condemning Israeli settlement expansion.

Just so we know who we're giving the old wink & nudge to here, check out this soundbyte from Mr Tz, Israeli settler:

"Leibowitz* is right. We are Judeo-Nazis, and why not?... Even today I am willing to do the dirty work for Israel, to kill as many Arabs as necessary, to deport them, to expel and burn them, to have everyone hate us, to pull the rug from underneath the feet of diaspora Jews, so that they will be forced to run to us crying. Even if it means blowing up one or two synagogues here and there, I don't care. And I don't mind if after the job is done you put me in front of a Nuremberg trial and jail me for life. Hang me if you want as a war criminal... What you lot don't understand is that the dirty work of Zionism is not yet finished, far from it. True, it could have been finished in 1948..." (Here & There in Eretz Israel in the Autumn of 1982, Amos Oz, 1982, pp 70-82)

I wish that were all that Abbottoir got up to this month in the UN, but it's not. Apparently, having abstained, along with 5 other countries, on a resolution calling for Israel to comply, as an occupying power, with the Geneva Conventions, we no longer believe that they apply to Israel.

The Geneva Conventions? Now who'd have thought Abbotoir's leader, Tony Abbott, would be on Colonel Saito's side here:

Colonel Nicholson: I must call your attention, Colonel Saito, to Article 27 of the Geneva Convention. (Reading) Belligerents may employ as workers prisoners of war who are physically fit other than officers...
Colonel Saito: Give me the book!
Nicholson: By all means. You read English I take it?
Saito: Do you read Japanese?
Nicholson: Sorry, no, but if it's a matter of precise translation I'm sure that can be arranged. I see the code specifically states that the... (Saito slaps his face and hurls the book to the ground)
Saito: You speak to me of code? What code? The coward's code. What do you know of the soldier's code? Of Bushido? Nothing! (Grabs Nicholson's swagger stick and breaks it) You are unworthy of command!
Nicholson: Since you refuse to abide by the laws of the civilized world, we must consider ourselves absolved from our duty to obey you. My officers will not do manual labor.
Saito: We shall see.
(The Bridge on the River Kwai, 1957)

So if Israel wants to deport Palestinians and replace them with Mr Tz and his mates, that's fine by Abbottoir.

You'll also be pleased to know that AIJAC's Colin Rubenstein "emphatically [welcomed] the government's principled leadership in changing these votes, reverting to the Howard/Downer position." (Tony Abbott quietly shifts UN position to support Israeli settlements, upsetting Palestinians, Jonathan Swan, Sydney Morning Herald, 25/11/13)

Alas, Abbottoir's Foreign Minister Julie Bishop was unavailable for comment.

And all Shadow Foreign Minister Tanya (Once Were Warriors) Plibersek could say when asked was: "It's quite extraordinary that [the government] would make such a large change without reporting back to Australians." (Insiders,,  24/11/13)

Could Tony Abbott be the Colonel Saito of Australian politics?

Why go back to Leibowitz? The Zionist-Nazi state, through the good offices of the Mossad, carried out a series of bombing attacks against Semitic Jews in Iraq in the nineteen fifties to encourage migration to the newly established bandit state.

This can not be disputed.

The bombers were caught by the police and told all. One of them sued the state of Israel when he was released from prison for back pay, and won.

Of course the Iraqi Jews were not persecuted by the Iraqis and were stampeded into a false state of panic as intended.

European migration had dried up, wasn't the Second World War fought to make Europe safe for the Jews?

They were not coming to the bandit state in the numbers expected.

Perhaps some second class but real Semites could fill the void.

Now the Middle East has to have endless wars for, ostensibly, the same reason, however it will never be safe as long as stolen land is occupied, no matter how many wars are contrived and even won.

The bandit state may win all the military battles, the propaganda battles and the diplomatic battles but it will not survive the last battle.

Australia is in a state of moral decay by abandoning civilized norms as represented by the Geneva Conventions, the slippery slope.

General Douglas MacArthur, in a speech on his return to America said, "History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline". December 12, 1951.

There seems much in common with the code and practices of Bushido, referred to by Colonel Saito, in his denunciation of the Geneva Conventions, and its modern day counterpart, Zionism, together with its grotesque chorus of submissive captive nations.

Bad news for Australia.

Google "Bridge on the River Kwai, cowards code" and then explain the difference between Bushido and Zionism.

With no shortage of weak political leaders we have strange bedfellows all round, wot.

Sorry, I have to disagree with your suggestion that Zionism and Bushido have much in common. Zionism has far more in common with Bulshido.

Well, all very predictable that the Israel/Zionist Lobby would be quick to exert its influence on our new Government. However, consider the rewards, the political donations, those five star junkets to the vibrant 'promised land', and perhaps even a 'Jerusalem Prize' or two in the offing.

A line from an article of Paul Kelly in the Australian, December 22, 2012:
"His critics will say that Abbott's love of Britain means he cannot deal with Asia. It is a nonsense, as Howard proved. Indeed, it is anti-intellectual claptrap with the implication that being versed in one culture means you cannot deal with another...He has promised a Jakarta focus".

At the surrender of Singapore conference between General Yamashita and General Percival in 1942 the following exchange was recorded, in part,

Percival: "Looting is taking place inside the city. And there are non-combatants."

Yamashita: "Non-combatants will be protected by the spirit of BUSHIDO.
So everything will be all right"

p343, 'The Battle for Singapore', by Peter Thompson, 2005.

Looks like Zionism and Bushido have more in common than at first glance.

But Zionism's not about protecting civilians, it's about giving them the bum's rush, esp. those unfortunate to have been born in Palestine to non-Jewish mothers. But Bulshido (or as it's sometimes spelt, Bullshito) now that's another matter - Zionism's got heaps in common with that.

The ABSTAIN vote - what a joke. It is a NO vote.
