      • So alarmingly salient, this prevailing fiction ~ that the vanquished, not only ceded, but deeded the land to self-ordained and predestined ‘civilizing’ exterminators; triumphalist occupiers, who could then piously claim it all as a divinely sanctioned inheritance. It’s still shocking, even now, to face the dreadful enormity of this crime; and all the more so, because the facts have been so gratuitously elided and legitimate narratives either suppressed or erased.

        What could be more repulsive, base and loathsome, than this vulgar, despicable, ethnically clean, cocksure certainty; dripping with the shed blood of villainous conquest hyperbole?

        The pathos is too acutely heart-rending. I mean, IS (daesh) have assumed unto themselves the same specious mantle of doing ‘God’s work’ ~ grotesque raiment indeed! Only they have used their pretext of holy jihad, to camouflage the eager adoption and psychopathic emulation of the nightmare tactics of Genghis Khan.

        That said ~ this American colonial holocaust really reveals the ultimate shame of Europe; because it fulfilled the most ample expression to date, of maliciously criminal colonial dominance. Its sole ambition has been to totally subjugate and subordinate whole nations of ‘lesser peoples.’ This was the ultimate export of that grimmest of false inheritances, monstrous priestly perversion.

        Without that vile precedent, perhaps the cumulative atrocities of today’s enthusiastic proponents of “zionism,” would have never gained their present degree of murderous traction; boasting as they do, the distinction of exhibiting such exceptional moral depravity, as to make some of the most misogynistic and bloodthirsty actions of the worst offenders of recorded history, pale into virtual insignificance.
