 “Every time we do something, you [Shimon Peres] 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.”

— Ariel Sharon
Israeli Prime Minister, homicidal psychopath
Knesset, Tel Aviv, October 3, 2001

 

“The greatest crime since World War II has been U.S. foreign policy.”

— Ramsey Clark
former U.S. Attorney General

 

“There was no war. No combat. There was only a deliberate, systematic genocide of a defenseless population while barely setting foot on Iraqi soil. When Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said in 1967, ‘The greatest purveyor of violence on earth is my own government’, he could not have dreamed in his worst nightmare what the U.S. did to Iraq.”

— Ramsey Clark

 

“I suspected I was just part of a racket at the time. Now I am sure of it. Like all members of the military profession I never had an original thought until I left the service. My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of the higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military service.”

— General Smedley Butler
USMC (Ret.) 

 

“I would like to talk on behalf of all those veterans and say that several months ago in Detroit we had an investigation at which over 150 honorably discharged, and many very highly decorated, veterans testified to war crimes committed in Southeast Asia. These were not isolated incidents but crimes committed on a day-to-day basis with the full awareness of officers at all levels of command. ...

“They told stories that at times they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in a fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam, in addition to the normal ravage of war and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country.”

— John Kerry
Navy lieutenant, leader of Vietnam Veterans Against the War
in testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee
April 23, 1971

 Did it not occur to you that replying simply by quoting someone is a neat, simple solution? Perhaps, you then could come up with a better solution.

I heard about that quote. Did he really say that? I mean, he can think it, but saying it with the chance that it would be published would be extremely stupid.

Sharon may be a killer, but he's for sure not stupid, at least I think he isn't.

 I'm sure the Knesset keeps minutes of all its meetings. If you can't find it there, then websites like www.govsux.com are not going to prove it to me.

"You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.

You cannot help small men by tearing down big men.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot lift the wage-earner by pulling down the wage-payer.
You cannot help the poor man by destroying the rich.
You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot establish security on borrowed money.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away men's initiative and independence.
You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves."

-William Boetcker

 

While the State exists, there can be no freedom. When there is freedom there will be no State.

Vladimir Ilyich Lenin

 

"How do you tell a Communist?
Well, it's someone who reads Marx and Lenin.
And how do you tell an anti-Communist?
It's someone who understands Marx and Lenin."

-Ronald Reagan

 

"The years ahead will be great ones for our country, for the cause of freedom and the spread of civilization. The West will not contain Communism, it will transcend Communism. We will not bother to denounce it, we'll dismiss it as a sad, bizarre chapter in human history whose last pages are even now being written."

-Ronald Reagan

 

"In our country, the lie has become
not just a moral category
but a pillar of the State."

-Alexander Solzenitshyn

 

"America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold:its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life.
If we can undermine these three areas,
America will collapse from within."

Joseph Stalin

“There are no important media outlets in the U.S. that are not owned or controlled by Jews.”

— Israel Shamir

His statement is meant not as an ethnocentric boast,
but as a wake-up call.

 

“The few who understand the system, will either be so interested in its profits, or so dependent on its favors that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantages...will bear its burden without complaint, and perhaps without suspecting that the system is inimical to their best interests.”

— Rothschild Brothers of London
communiqué to associates in New York
June 25, 1863

interview in The Sun magazine, August 2001

 Of course it's not. Not until you start accusing them of Zionist conspiracies. And how cute that you're quoting our Secretary of State to prop up your ability to criticize a country.
