Thank You Israel !!!
The Motto of JewishState.com
1 December 2012
How can anyone, other than extremists themselves, sympathize with Islamist génocidaires? To those with an idea of Islamist intolerance, genocide, and history, the phenomenom sometimes seems inexplicable.
After all, populations such as the French or Spanish condemn Islamists who murder their own nationals. Why is it that Islamists who murder Israelis suddenly become "understandable" freedom fighters in a "complicated" situation, where a journalist or politician can take an anti-Israel position and still pass as socially acceptable?
Of course, on an intellectual level, Israel wins the argument without much of a real struggle. Islamists hide among their own civilian population, fire rockets at Israeli civilians, and force Israel to retaliate with imperfect precision missiles that inevitably cause some loss of nearby civilians. To any objective observer who does not have mental retardation, it should not be difficult to assign responsibilities, especially if one does a modicum of research concerning the widespread inculcation of genocide ideology in Arab children and in Arab society at large.
However, genocide never has been about intelligence and reasoned debate. Although it is important to continue to point out the truth to anyone whose mind is half-open, supporters of decency and peace must also wage a sophisticated media effort to appeal to emotion, the foundation both of genocide ideology and of sympathy for génocidaires among fellow-travellers, such as BBC journalists and members of the European Parliament who sail in "Gaza Flotillas" from Islamist Turkey to terrorist-controlled Gaza.
In that vein, I introduce the campaign entitled, "Thank You Israel !!!" The foundational assuption is that Israel has already won all debates based on reason or critcal thought. The campaign skips to the emotional connections that one may have, those involving the beauty of Israel and the life that Israel represents: happiness; security; confidence in the future; and protection from a world of darkness, genocide, and cowardice.
Instead of getting into the weeds and repeating for the umpteenth time obvious facts, the campaign pulls together aspects of reality into one coherent framework for understanding information. By focusing on that simple framework, people have a structure onto which facts can begin to stick.
The campaign is targeted not only at foreigners and non-Jews, but also at Jews and Israelis afflicted with the mental syndrome known as Identification with the Aggressor.
Are you a Jew suffering from Identification with the Aggressor (I.A.)?
This assessment tool may help to determine if you have I.A.
If you feel that you may be suffering from I.A., please seek an assessment from a qualified health care provider. Remember that for the patient with I.A., further involvement in political or associative life could be fatal for the patient or for the patient's entire community. Some people may have used terms such as "peace activist" or "left-wing professor" to describe the patient; in reality, the person has a mental health disorder and needs help to achieve a positive outcome. Compassionate treatment is available from mental health professionals. If you do not know where to turn for help, please contact Brian Rubaduka, who may be able to help you connect with skilled providers of care in your area.
Answers and rationales appear at the bottom of this page.
1. It is 1994 Rwanda. You are the rebel general who has just overthrown the genocidal government. What is your priority?
A) Destroy remaining genocidal elements, install disciplined forces to ensure the rule of law, and take over genocide-promoting schools and news media to allow the brainwashed population slowly to become a functional society.
B) Given that the genocidal militias understandably desire territorial gains and access to economic opportunities, give them land and subsidies to ensure permanent peace.
C) Show broadmindedness to the international community by explaining the complexity of the origins of the genocide. Relate to them why all sides bear some of the blame. Quickly allow the brainwashed majority population to vote in elections; this will uphold the state's attachment to democratic principles.
D) Release thousands of prisoners of war back to the genocidal forces, thereby establishing good-will and a spirit of compromise between the new regime and the genocidal forces.
2. You are a customer in a bank. Bank robbers rush into the building and a hostage situation ensues. The gunmen repeatedly threaten to exterminate all of the hostages. Eventually, they kill a woman. Which of the following scenarios represents your appropriate response?
A) After two days of continuous siege, you observe one of the hostage-takers sleeping. You take his gun and kill him. You then establish a secure area for the hostages.
B) Discovering your ability to assume the bank robbers' point of view, you realize that the incident is not their fault; in fact, other people forced their hand. You earnestly share these opinions with the robbers.
C) When you discover that one of your fellow hostages is organizing an escape, you recognize this as a dangerous violation of the instructions given by the hostage-takers. You promptly tell them about the scheme.
D) After the hostage incident is resolved, you go to the trial of the robbers to show them your support. You explain to the press that their difficult childhoods clearly justified their actions.
3. It is 1894 in the Ottoman Empire. A professor at an ethnic-Armenian university learns about some genocidal attacks on his community. How should he plan his lectures within this context?
A) He should teach his class that although Armenians had inhabited their land for a thousand years before the Turks arrived, Armenians have no right to any autonomy in the area – not even in a territory of less than 1% of the region.
B) Noting the inherent evil of statehood, he should remind the students that they must look upon the history of Armenia with shame.
C) Realizing that Armenian efforts at self-defense had resulted in injury to some ethnic-Turkish elements, he should encourage his students to visit the families of the injured men. Also, he should suggest that they start a business project for unemployed Turks to further enhance harmony between the two communities.
D) He should lecture on the prevailing culture of genocide that constitutes a major threat to the Armenian community.
4. You are a member of the Kongo ethnic group, the year is 1895, and the agents of King Leopold II of Belgium have captured you. You find yourself constructing a railway line through the jungle in a context of forced-labor of the no-food-provided-because-new-captives-are-cheaper variety. How should you respond?
A) Earnestly explain to your fellow captives that, "The Belgians will feed us once we show that we are working hard. After all, Belgians are just people like any other kind of people."
B) Acknowledge that the Belgians hold legitimate grievances against the Kongo. Accepting the inevitability of a bi-national country, do your best to construct the railway.
C) Look for a chance to seize European weapons and start a guerrilla insurrection. If possible, collect evidence on the true nature of Leopold's supposedly philanthropic undertakings.
D) Embrace your assignments without complaint and daydream about an electoral system where the new arrivals would be able to overwhelm the Kongo.
5. In the year 1791, in the French Caribbean slave colony of Saint-Dominique, you find yourself in prison, accused of participating in the slave insurrection. After torture, your captors return you to a large, barred room with many other African prisoners. What do you tell the others?
A) "Instead of focusing so much on our own survival, we should think more about the considerable difficulties that we're causing for the French in their daily life. Understanding their pain constitutes the key to resolving this conflict."
B) "The French news media and educational system do a good job of describing our situation. I'm sure if we show them how much we want to be friends, they will accept us as equals."
C) "The torture was intense, but I know we can trust them to negotiate in good faith. If we give them 50% of the territory we now hold, especially the high ground, they will surely let us live tranquilly in the other half."
D) "We must look for a means of escape and then continue to fight until they have accepted their defeat. At a moment like this, it seems difficult to believe, but one day French investors or immigrants might actually help us establish a successful state – but they can only participate in our society if they demonstrate their attachment to our state's purpose as a Black Republic."
Answers and rationales
A - This would be an appropriate strategy for managing a difficult situation. Genocidal armies must first accept defeat, admit to their crimes, and commit to a long and intensive rehabilitation program before receiving any mercy. The brainwashed, genocide-supporting population will likely require years of re-orientation before it can assume responsibility for itself.
B - Genocidal forces will employ the gains obtained through appeasement to avail their ultimate aims. This action would lead to the destruction of the victim population. Furthermore, because it attempts to overcome genocide through a partnership with the génocidaires, this attitude strongly suggests Identification with the Aggressor (I.A.). While I.A. may seem like a useful coping mechanism to the unconscious mind of many people, it has no effect in obtaining power over psychopaths. The patient needs to suspend all political activity and involvement in civil society and receive compassionate care from mental health professionals. Pretending that the patient is a legitimate peace activist or left-wing thinker and arguing with him as such will only exacerbate the patient's delusional thinking.
C - Rather than perceiving broadmindedness, the international community would interpret this attitude as an admission of guilt. Furthermore, no population deserves genocide. Brainwashed populations supporting genocide cannot enjoy the rights of citizenship. After a long period of re-orientation, expert evaluations can determine if they can be entrusted with rights. No policy that involves the extermination of one's own group can uphold the democracy of that group.
D - Same as "B".
A - This is the only attractive action provided.
B - Because this action attempts to overcome the murderers through
befriending them, this would strongly suggest Identification with the
Aggressor (I.A.). Death for all of the hostages would probably follow.
While I.A. may seem like an appropriate coping mechanism to the
unconscious mind of many people, it has no utility in obtaining power
over psychopaths. The patient must suspend all involvement in politics
and associations and receive compassionate treatment from
professionals in mental health. Telling the patient that he is a true
peace activist or left-wing political thinker will only create more
confusion for him. Arguing with the patient will not help and may
C - Same as "B".
D - This would strongly suggest I.A.
A - This statement reflects the adoption of the opinions of one's enemy inherent to I.A. This approach would contribute to the destruction of the Armenian people.
B - Same as "A".
C - Trying to convince genocidal forces that you understand their humanity does not make them behave in a more human way. Although this coping mechanism may make sense to the unconscious mind of a moral person, it will have no effect on people under the sway of psychopathic mentalities.
D - This would help the students understand the reality of their difficult situation.
A - These Belgians intend to work and starve the hostages to death. They will then replace the workers with new captives. They have found this method more economical than maintaining a healthy workforce. This is the established system; wishful thinking will not change this reality.
B - There are no grievances that can justify the destruction of a population. This attitude suggests the disorder of Identification with the Aggressor (I.A.), which would probably prove fatal in this context.
C - Although extremely difficult both physically and psychologically, this is the only chance of survival for the Kongo.
D - This attitude suggests I.A., which would lead to death.
A - The only chance of survival for the Africans is to drive the French from the island, with the exception of any French abolitionists. This statement suggests Identification with the Aggressor (I.A.), with re-enslavement or death as probable results in this context.
B - Same as "A"
C - Same as "A"
D - This constitutes the only healthy response to a difficult situation. Allowing French to return who do not demonstrate commitment to the purpose of the Black Republic of Haiti as a homeland for freed slaves could lead to re-enslavement or death.
