Noelene Konstandinitis, an ex-Webdiary commenter and extreme right-wing Zionist, has shown her true colours at the Harry Heidelberg website with this outburst that reveals the true sympathies of the pro-Zionist supporters in Australia. She writes in response to a comment I had posted regarding the invasion of the Gaza Strip by the Israelis:

“Damian Lataan
Of course it is EXCELLENT news that Israel is FINALLY sticking up for itself!
What neither the Pals, nor the western bourgeois left, seems to be able to get their think [sic] heads around is that Israel could have destroyed Egypt, Syria, AND Jordan AND kicked the Pals out in 1948, 56, 67, 73, etc. The only thing stopping them every single time was the US!All this would have been over DECADES over [sic], if the U.S. had just let nature take its course.
The wretched camel-jockeys have NO right to be in the Holy Land and the sooner they catch the next magic carpet or camel sleigh to Jordan, Syria, or Egypt the better! The Israelis MUST seize this opportunity to totally turn around the whole tedious farce of the middle east. It is time to bitchslap the fetid Mohammedans into next week. Vaporize the pigs!
A world without Muslims would be a lovely world indeed!”[1]

Konstandinitis exposes herself for the Islamaphobic racist that she is and typifies the racist attitudes of those other right-wing Zionist supporters at Webdiary and elsewhere, Will Howard, Geoff Pahoff, Chris Parsons, Mike Iyvers, et al, who have consistently supported similar ideas relating to Israel’s position with regard to the Palestinians.

Below are a few reminders of what some other right-wing Zionists think about Palestinians.
1. "There is a huge gap between us (Jews) and our enemies ­not just in ability but in morality, culture, sanctity of life, and conscience. They are our neighbours here, but it seems as if at a distance of a few hundred meters away, there are people who do not belong to our continent, to our world, but actually belong to a different galaxy." Israeli president Moshe Katsav. The Jerusalem Post, May 10, 2001
2. "The Palestinians are like crocodiles, the more you give them meat, they want more".... Ehud Barak, Prime Minister of Israel at the time - August 28, 2000. Reported in the Jerusalem Post August 30, 2000
3. " [The Palestinians are] beasts walking on two legs." Menachim Begin, speech to the Knesset, quoted in Amnon Kapeliouk, "Begin and the Beasts". New Statesman, 25 June 1982.
4. "The Palestinians" would be crushed like grasshoppers ... heads smashed against the boulders and walls." "Israeli Prime Minister (at the time) in a speech to Jewish settlers New York Times April 1, 1988
5. "When we have settled the land, all the Arabs will be able to do about it will be to scurry around like drugged cockroaches in a bottle." Raphael Eitan, Chief of Staff of the Israeli Defence Forces, New York Times, 14 April 1983.
6. "How can we return the occupied territories? There is nobody to return them to." Golda Maier, March 8, 1969.
7. "There was no such thing as Palestinians, they never existed." Golda Maier Israeli Prime Minister June 15, 1969
8. "The thesis that the danger of genocide was hanging over us in June 1967 and that Israel was fighting for its physical existence is only bluff, which was born and developed after the war." Israeli General Matityahu Peled, Ha'aretz, 19 March 1972.
9. David Ben Gurion (the first Israeli Prime Minister): "If I were an Arab leader, I would never sign an agreement with Israel. It is normal; we have taken their country. It is true God promised it to us, but how could that interest them? Our God is not theirs. There has been Anti - Semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault ? They see but one thing: we have come and we have stolen their country. Why would they accept that?" Quoted by Nahum Goldmann in Le Paraddoxe Juif (The Jewish Paradox), pp121.
10. Ben Gurion also warned in 1948 : "We must do everything to insure they ( the Palestinians) never do return." Assuring his fellow Zionists that Palestinians will never come back to their homes. "The old will die and the young will forget."
11. "We have to kill all the Palestinians unless they are resigned to live here as slaves." Chairman Heilbrun of the Committee for the Re-election of General Shlomo Lahat, the mayor of Tel Aviv, October 1983.
12. "Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that . . . I want to tell you something very clear: Don't worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it." - Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, October 3, 2001, to Shimon Peres, as reported on Kol Yisrael radio. (Certainly the FBI's cover-up of the Israeli spy ring/phone tap scandal suggests that Mr. Sharon may not have been joking.)
13. "We declare openly that the Arabs have no right to settle on even one centimetre of Eretz Israel... Force is all they do or ever will understand. We shall use the ultimate force until the Palestinians come crawling to us on all fours." Rafael Eitan, Chief of Staff of the Israeli Defense Forces - Gad Becker, Yediot Ahronot 13 April 1983, New York Times 14 April 1983.
14. "We must do everything to ensure they [the Palestinian refugees] never do return" David Ben-Gurion, in his diary, 18 July 1948, quoted in Michael Bar Zohar's Ben-Gurion: the Armed Prophet, Prentice-Hall, 1967, p. 157.
15. "We should prepare to go over to the offensive. Our aim is to smash Lebanon, Trans-Jordan, and Syria. The weak point is Lebanon, for the Moslem regime is artificial and easy for us to undermine. We shall establish a Christian state there, and then we will smash the Arab Legion, eliminate Trans-Jordan; Syria will fall to us. We then bomb and move on and take Port Said, Alexandria and Sinai." David Ben-Gurion, May 1948, to the General Staff. From Ben-Gurion, A Biography, by Michael Ben-Zohar, Delacorte, New York 1978.
16. "We must use terror, assassination, intimidation, land confiscation, and the cutting of all social services to rid the Galilee of its Arab population." Israel Koenig, "The Koenig Memorandum"
17. "Jewish villages were built in the place of Arab villages. You do not even know the names of these Arab villages, and I do not blame you because geography books no longer exist. Not only do the books not exist, the Arab villages are not there either. Nahlal arose in the place of Mahlul; Kibbutz Gvat in the place of Jibta; Kibbutz Sarid in the place of Huneifis; and Kefar Yehushua in the place of Tal al-Shuman. There is not a single place built in this country that did not have a former Arab population." Moshe Dayan, address to the Technion, Haifa, reported in Haaretz, April 4, 1969.
18. "We walked outside, Ben-Gurion accompanying us. Allon repeated his question, ‘What is to be done with the Palestinian population?’ Ben-Gurion waved his hand in a gesture which said 'Drive them out!'" Yitzhak Rabin, leaked censored version of Rabin memoirs, published in the New York Times, 23 October 1979.
19. Rabin's description of the conquest of Lydda, after the completion of Plan Dalet. "We shall reduce the Arab population to a community of woodcutters and waiters" Uri Lubrani, PM Ben-Gurion's special adviser on Arab Affairs, 1960. From "The Arabs in Israel" by Sabri Jiryas.
20. "There are some who believe that the non-Jewish population, even in a high percentage, within our borders will be more effectively under our surveillance; and there are some who believe the contrary, i.e., that it is easier to carry out surveillance over the activities of a neighbor than over those of a tenant. [I] tend to support the latter view and have an additional argument:...the need to sustain the character of the state which will henceforth be Jewish...with a non-Jewish minority limited to 15 percent. I had already reached this fundamental position as early as 1940 [and] it is entered in my diary." Joseph Weitz, head of the Jewish Agency's Colonization Department. From Israel: an Apartheid State by Uri Davis, p.5.
21. "Everybody has to move, run and grab as many hilltops as they can to enlarge the settlements because everything we take now will stay ours... Everything we don't grab will go to them." Ariel Sharon, Israeli Foreign Minister, addressing a meeting of militants from the extreme right-wing Tsomet Party, Agence France Presse, November 15, 1998.
22. "It is the duty of Israeli leaders to explain to public opinion, clearly and courageously, a certain number of facts that are forgotten with time. The first of these is that there is no Zionism, colonialization or Jewish State without the eviction of the Arabs and the expropriation of their lands." Yoram Bar Porath, Yediot Aahronot, of 14 July 1972.
23. "Spirit the penniless population across the frontier by denying it employment... Both the process of expropriation and the removal of the poor must be carried out discreetly and circumspectly." Theodore Herzl, founder of the World Zionist Organization, speaking of the Arabs of Palestine, Complete Diaries, June 12, 1895 entry.
24. "One million Arabs are not worth a Jewish fingernail." -- Rabbi Yaacov Perrin, Feb. 27, 1994 [Source: N.Y. Times, Feb. 28, 1994, p. 1]

It seems fairly clear that Israel has over the past few months put considerable effort into setting up the Palestinians in the Gaza for re-invasion and occupation – a scenario which I suggested would happen as part of Israel’s long term goal of displacing the population and annexing the Gaza Strip as part of an eventual Greater Israel.
By shelling and bombing innocent Palestinians and carry out extra-judicial executions on Palestinian activists the Israelis have deliberately goaded the Palestinians into taking retaliatory action. That action occurred last Sunday when a large group of Palestinian fighters struck at an Israeli border post destroying at least two Israeli vehicles, including a tank, and killing two Israeli soldiers and wounding others including one that was captured.
Already Israeli troops and tanks are massing at the border in readiness to invade on the pretext that they will be searching for their missing soldier, the Frenchmen Cpl. Gilad Shalit.
In latest reports it is being inferred that Israel will only invade the Gaza if Cpl. Shalit is no returned immediately. This inference is being reinforced by the fact that the Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas, has called upon his own security people in the Gaza to search for the Israeli.[1]
The reality is, however, that, even if Cpl. Shalit is returned safely to Israel, the Israelis will not be able to leave the matter at that. They will still need to invade in order to come good on their promise to bring the perpetrators of Shalit’s capture, not to mention the killers of two other Israeli soldiers that were killed in the process, to ‘justice’. Ehud Olmert has said: “I gave the orders to our military commanders to prepare the army for a broad and ongoing military operation to strike the terrorist leaders and all those involved," he said. "It should be clear. There will be immunity for no one.”[2]
It will, therefore, only be a matter of time before the inevitable happens, and when it does there is likely to be a blood bath – and it will be one that Israel has deliberately provoked. The idea is to terrorise the Palestinian population to the point that they would not wish to remain in the Gaza anyway. The invasion with its accompanying bloodshed and destruction of communities will, the Israelis hope, drive the Palestinians from the Gaza.
Do not be surprised to hear that the Israelis will open a corridor between the Gaza and the West Bank to allow ‘refugees’ from the fighting to move from the Gaza.
Of course, I could be wrong – I do hope so.

THE RIGHT-WING POP GROUP, ‘TIM BLAIR AND THE MORONS’, together with his band of dumb and gullible groupies, are rubbing their grubby little hands together with glee at the apparently upcoming demise of Webdiary. (26 July 2006 is the day the money runs out.) It’s a pity that not one of those that comment at Tim Blair, including Blair himself, are able to formulate any sort of constructive idea other than to abuse and insult those that comment at Webdiary or are otherwise not of the right-wing. In other words, Tim Blair’s entire purpose in life, it seems, is to spend it trying to discredit the Left. He and his blathering followers have not ever once contributed an idea that may actually enhance life on our planet.

It seems that the Israeli military have been caught out – yet again – in a lie. The highly contentious deaths of innocent Palestinians on a Gaza beach some two weeks ago by a shell lobbed by the Israelis from an Israeli ship off-shore had subsequently been denied by the Israelis on account of the timing of the firing of the shell relative to the time of the explosion. The Israelis claimed that the explosion occurred at a specific time well after the round had been fired and 10 minutes, according to the Israelis, after the time the shell would have impacted.
Ambulance logs AND hospital logs AND cell-phone records tell a completely different story; a story that confirms that the blast on the beach occurred just moments after the Israelis had fired off the round.[1] All these independent logs, particularly the automatic computer generated phone record, all demonstrate that the Israelis not only lied to deflect blame but DELIBERATELY lied by doctoring their own log records.
Naturally, Australia’s own liars and deceivers based at Webdiary, Messrs. Will Howard, Geoff Pahoff, et al, all supported the lie in their attempt to demonise the Palestinians.


I also note over at Webdiary that Pahoff has unilaterally declared that the death of 12 year-old Mohamed al-Dura back in September 2000 was not caused by IDF terrorists.[2] Pahoff actually uses a pro-Zionist propaganda website[3] as ‘evidence’ to support the lie that Palestinian gunmen deliberately set up the incident in order to blame the Israelis.[4]
Sounds like a familiar story?
One wonders how Pahoff’s crazed logic is going to account for the deaths of several children and innocent Palestinian civilians over the past few days in the Gaza caused by Israeli terrorists operating strike aircraft.
The reality is that no matter who squeezed the trigger, if Israeli terrorists had not been on lands that did not belong to them in the first place then Mohamed al-Dura would still be alive today.


Just as an aside, is there not a rather pathetic irony in the way President Bush compares the 1956 Hungarian uprising with what’s happening in Iraq?[5] The Hungarian uprising is actually a superb analogy of what is happening in Iraq today – only not in the sense that Bush thinks.
The Hungarian uprising was about an insurgency of the people fed up with their puppet government and the foreign power that dominated it – isn’t that exactly what is happening in Iraq today?

The Islamaphobic hatreds, lies and deceit of the likes of the Israeli and right-wing Zionist apologists Messrs. Will Howard, Chris Parsons, Geoff Pahoff, Mike Iyvers, et al, in Australia are fed by right-wing think tank websites mostly dominated by neoconservatives and/or US-Israeli interests. For example, the recent debacle over President Ahmadinejad of Iran’s speech when he was accused of calling for ‘Israel to be wiped off the map’ stems directly from the deliberate mistranslation by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) of what Ahmadinejad actually said. MEMRI is an American organisation set up and run by Jewish-American neoconservatives specifically to protect the interests of Israel and right-wing Zionism.

Some Israeli and right-wing Zionist apologists also try to present some obviously right-wing think-tank organisations as ‘neutral’ or ‘non-partisan’. Back in January of this year for example, the liar and deceiver Will Howard tried unsuccessfully to hoodwink Webdiarists by asserting that the Israeli think-tank, the Jaffee Centre for Strategic Studies (JCSS) was a ‘non-partisan’ organisation. He then told how even this ‘non-partisan’ organisation had come to the conclusion that, indeed, Iran was pursuing nuclear weapons. This was a deliberate attempt at deception. The JCSS in fact is a think tank organisation staffed predominately by senior ex-Israeli military and intelligence officers and headed up by an ex-IDF Brigadier-General. (Hardly ‘non-partisan.) After I had exposed his deception Will Howard then attempted to obfuscate his deception by claiming that a link I provided to a Le Monde Diplomatique story that demonstrated how the JCSS had similar attributes to another US think-tank organisation, the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP), which is a full-on neoconservative think-tank organisation that was initially funded by none other than the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), saying that the article contrasts WINEP with JCSS. Of course, the article did no such thing; it showed instead how similar the two organisations are.

The use of these think-tanks demonstrates the extent to which the Israeli and right-wing Zionists and their apologists in Australia are prepared to go in their attempts to lie and deceive in the cause of a Greater Israel at the expense of the Palestinian people and peace in the Middle East generally.

It seems the US/Israeli/Coalition propaganda machine has officially selected an anti-hero figure head so that the few dumb and gullible right-wing warmongers that are left on the planet can continue to have their Islamaphobic hate sessions and for the US/Israeli/Coalition terrorists to have some one to blame for the continued sectarian violence in Iraq.

Abu Musab al-Zarqawi Mk. 2 is Abu Ayyub al-Masri, who everyone knows as Abu Hamza al-Muhajir. (No one knows whether Abu Ayyub al-Masri is the name of the actor playing the part of Abu Hamza al-Muhajir or the other way round.) Either way, since Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was recently killed off in the third series of the soap called ‘The Global War On Terrorism’, the producers of the series, The Coalition of the Killing Productions, have, in an attempt to revive flagging ratings, tried to kill two birds with one stone by killing off Zarqawi and introducing his replacement character for the foreseeable future.

It will be interesting to see whether this new character will live up to the promise of death and mayhem that the producers have told us we can expect. Much in this regard will depend on the direction the executive producers of the series, World Hegemony Inc., wish to move in terms of a strategy toward their goal of 100% of the market share.

Will Howard, an American-Israeli apologist residing in Australia and who has a history of frequently lying to and deceiving Australian readers of various blogs including the popular Webdiary, is now, in his latest bid to deceive, attempting to collude with the Israeli military in shifting the blame for the atrocity of the Gaza Beach massacre from the Israelis to Hamas.

In his latest bid to hoodwink Webdiarists Will Howard asserts without any evidence that: “Palestinian Authority TV has been repeatedly broadcasting a falsified video clip of the events surrounding the deaths of seven family members on the Gaza beach on Friday.”[1]

The assertion that Hamas is to blame for the killings comes only from the Israeli military after a whitewash investigation designed to exonerate the Israelis and repair the damage done to public opinion of Israel and particularly as the Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert[2] makes a so far unsuccessful round of visits to the West to garner support for the proposed land grab into the West Bank.[3]

Will Howard, a commentator at Australia’s Webdiary blog, has exposed himself yet again as a liar and deceiver. On Webdiary he claims: “…like in 1948 and 1967, when Israel had no US backing?”

In 1962 the US agreed to supply Israel with the Raytheon designed and built HAWK anti-aircraft missile system.[1] During the 1967 war Israel operated US Douglas A-4 Skyhawk fighter/attack aircraft.[2] Both the missiles and the aircraft were all but given to the Israelis by various US administrations. A year after the 1967 war the US supplied the Israelis with the highly sophisticated state of the art McDonnell Phantom aircraft[3] which was used to great effect in consolidating Israeli gains and against Syria and Egypt in October 1973.[4]

Will Howard has consistently and unashamedly demonstrated his ability to lie and deceive in his comments at Webdiary and elsewhere.

The pro-Zionist right-wing liar Will Howard of Australia’s Webdiary has really gone over the top with his latest comments at Webdiary when he writes this transparent and obvious garbage:

“Here are some other headlines from
[I swear I'm not making this up!]
Mind Control In The 21st Century Thermite Brought Down The WTC Towers Zionism Is Nobody's Friend The Nonexistent 'Auschwitz Gas Chambers'? Blatant, Controlled Demolition of WTC 7…”[1]

‘I swear I’m not making this up!’ the liar proclaims. He later declares that he did put in line breaks but for some inexplicable reason they didn’t show up in the published post, but concedes nonetheless that, “I think it actually reads better as the stream of unconsciousness it is,”[2] which of course is what this deceitful scoundrel set out to do in the first place.

This compounds Will Howard’s other deceit for the day whereby he refers Webdiarists to an article that is outrageously and blatantly right-wing Zionist in its rhetoric presenting it to Webdiarists as some kind of moderate anti-fascist essay. In reality the author of this piece of propaganda, Steve Silver, a well-known warmongering right-wing Zionist, highlights some of the excesses of some of those extremists that really are anti-Semite and then attempts to cast all who are anti-Zionist in the same anti-Semite mould.[3]

It seems Mearsheimer and Walt was right after all!
