On 9 January 2009, Texas Congressman and Presidential candidate (2010), Ron Paul, said this in Congress:
"The weapons being used to kill so many Palestinians are American weapons... There's a political liability, which I think is something that we fail to look at, because too often there's so much blow back from our intervention in areas that we shouldn't be involved in.
You know, Hamas, if you look at the history, you will find that HAMAS WAS ENCOURAGED AND ACTUALLY STARTED BY ISRAEL because they wanted Hamas to counteract Yasir Arafat...
So then we, as Americans, say, well, we have such a good system, we’re going to impose this on the world... We want free elections. So we encouraged the Palestinians to have a free election. They do, and they elect Hamas.
So we first, indirectly and directly through Israel, helped establish Hamas. Then we have an election where Hamas becomes dominant, then we have to kill them. You know, it just doesn’t make sense.
During the 1980s, we were allied with Osama bin Laden and we were contending with the Soviets. It was at that time our CIA thought it was good if we radicalise the Muslim world. So we finance the Madrassas school to radicalise the Muslims in order to compete with the Soviets.
There is too much blow back.”
Not just the 'racist,' 'Fascist,' 'Nazi' 'bigots' trying to wake everyone up nowadays, is it?
Seven years on from Ron's speech, how many more are finding things out for themselves? How many more no longer rely on a corrupt and self-serving mainstream for needful information?
But, trust me, we're getting there.
We really are.
