A HOLOCAUST — a word which means consumption and destruction by fire — and which also means a sacrifice, in this case a human sacrifice — is now taking place in Gaza. Matan Vilnai, Israel’s deputy defense minister and former Israeli general, used that very term when he let the truth slip out in 2008 and warned us that the continued resistance of Palestinians to the Israeli blockade of Gaza would bring “a bigger Holocaust” upon that troubled land. And now, six years later, that threat is being carried out with a vengeance.
HAVING BEEN THROUGH (and ultimately rejected) the “right wing” and conservative movements early in my life, I have seen a great many books purporting to expose political or financial conspiracies. Quite a few are worthless. A significant number of these are so ludicrous as to actually serve the cause of those they ostensibly criticize, who may indeed covertly finance the nuttier tomes. A few are indispensable. Many also fall into the category of interesting, though flawed.
(Some fun favorites of mine in the worthless or bogus categories: The “militia” writer who claimed that most of us would die when the Earth passed through a “poison gas belt” in 1991, and who thoughtfully offered for sale special gas masks to save us; the prolific Spotlight advertiser who warned us about the giant crack that the Illuminati were going to engineer under the Atlantic Ocean, “proved by Bible prophecy”; and the 9-11 theorists who claim that there were no terrorists and no jets — all was a 3-D holographic projection. I could go on indefinitely.)
In general, I think that it’s insane to believe that groups — especially intensely ethnocentric minorities — never conspire; but believing that most of the evils of the world are the work of a “master conspiracy” is also pathological, in my opinion.
