A recent article in the UKs ‘New Statesman’ journal has highlighted the existence of a youth military training camp in Israel. The trainees are Jewish youths who come mainly from Europe and the America’s every summer to learn the basics of military life in the Israeli Defence Forces.

The existence of the camp once again highlights the hypocrisy of the West which constantly condemns the existence of similar camps run by Islamic nations for foreign Arab and Islamic fighters. Western propaganda and rhetoric decries the Islamic training camps as ‘terrorist’ training camps while Israel claim they are training Jewish fighters to ‘defend’ Israel. The reality is; it is Israelis that are on land that is not theirs. They are not ‘defending’ Israel at all but rather they are helping Israeli Zionists create a Greater Israel at the expense of the Palestinian people while the Arab and Islamic fighters are defending their lands from Israeli and US invasions, occupations and theft of their resources.

Hypocrisy and arrogance; just two of the values that ‘they’ hate about ‘us’.

Hypocrisy is a word that does not exist in Hebrew, Damian.

Surely such camps should be bombed as they clearly are terrorist training camps for Israeli imperialists.

But of course they will be facilitated by Western Nations.

The word 'Chutzpah' springs to mind Daniel. It doesn't translate to 'hypocrisy' but is pretty close.

The best definition of Chutzpah that I heard was this: A young lad murders his parents in a fit of rage. In court he is found guilty of his crime. Before passing sentence the judge asks the young lad if he has anything to say before passing sentence to which the young lad replied with head bowed, 'I ask that you be lenient with me; I am, after all, just a poor orphan boy.'

This article from Asia Times Online gives a great account of a story that is not being reported in the West.
It tells how Israel is flying "missions" over Syrian airspace.
They're behaving like they own the Middle East and can act with impunity.
In fact, their arrogance extends so far as to try to silence the EU on the matter:

At a joint news conference in Jerusalem, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni asked her Portuguese counterpart to refrain from commenting on the incident. After Minister Luis Amado, whose country currently holds the presidency of the European Union, was asked for the EU's stance on the incident, Livni interrupted the discussion and signaled to Amado not to answer.

Now that's Chutzpah!!

I think there is much more to come out of this story. NYT are reporting that it may have even been an Israeli strike against N. Korean nuclear stuff that had found its way to Syria. Stepping back and taking a look at the bigger picture the strike was not something that was unexpected. The Israelis have been itching to get a fight going with Syria for some time. It is part of something I have been talking about for sometime whereby Israel and the US are seeking the final confrontation so that Israel can deal with Hizbollah and Hamas without interference from Syria and Iran.

The infinitely elastic morality of Western Governments is obvious and appalling. That of Israel and the U.S. of A. (of which Australia is a member) is completely breathtaking!

As my manifesto indicates, it's time we radically changed the way we are governed (or is it ruled?).
