If you want to know the essence of how the industry of lies operates, don't search among the anti-Semitic right in Hungary, nor in the circles of the Muslim Brotherhood, or among the lunatic left in Britain. The industry is homegrown, developed among our own ranks and exported to the enemies of Israel. The issue that must be addressed is neither free speech nor articulating politically correct messages. In exposing the industry of lies, we must understand that we are not talking about just the Left or "peace activists," or "critical journalists," but rather dangerous propagandists that are writing the new "Protocols" against Israel. Every day we are exposed to new lows of contempt, humiliation, and outright hatred of Israel; logic is suspended; and an entirely false narrative of the conflict is now widely accepted as an unchallengeable fact. Victim and victimizer, truth and lies, justice and injustice turn into their precise opposite This has led to a kind of dialogue of the demented in which rational discussion is simply not possible because there is no shared understanding of the meaning of words and concepts.

To begin we must understand that we are dealing with pathology — to which we nevertheless respond as if it were rational behavior, which turns reality upside down. Remarkably, this suspension of logic is very similar to the inversion of reality commonly found within the Islamic world, where such an inversion has a theological base. Because Islam is considered perfect, believers of Islam can never do wrong. All their aggression is therefore represented as self-defense, while western/Israeli self-defense is said to be aggression. In this Orwellian universe, the enslavement of Muslim women is said to represent their liberation; democracy is a means of enslavement from which the west must be freed; and the murder of Jews anywhere and Israelis in particular is the purest form of justice.

Furthermore, this is overlaid by the phenomenon of ‘psychological projection’ in which the Islamic world not only denies its own misdeeds but projects them instead on to its victims. While Muslims deny the Holocaust, they claim that Israel is carrying out a holocaust in Gaza. Anti-Semitism has always been central to the Jewish experience in Europe; along these lines, Muslims claim that ‘Islamophobia’ is rife throughout Europe. Israel gives all Jews the ‘right of return’ to Israel; Muslims claim a ‘right of return’ – not to their own state of Palestine, but to Israel. They even claim that the Palestinians are the world’s original/indigenous Jews, claiming that Jesus was a Palestinian. These and many other examples are used within the Islamic world to negate the Jewish experience and appropriate it for itself to obtain what Muslims want in terms of status, power and conquest.

What is remarkable is that instead of treating this as a pathological deformity of thinking, many Jews belonging to the progressive intelligentsia have largely embraced it as rational and true. To a large extent this is because that same western intelligentsia has itself supplanted rationality by ideology. Objectivity, evidence based empirical truth have been ditched for ideologies such as moral and cultural relativism, multiculturalism, feminism, environmentalism, anti-capitalism, anti-colonialism, transnationalism, anti-Americanism, anti-Zionism. So if every interpretation is based on relativism, these is no truth, ergo there can be no lies either; truth and lies become merely “alternative narratives”This can be seen clearly in the following deluded narrative that is accepted as truth; the Muslim world cannot be held responsible for blowing people up as they are the third world victims of the west; so any atrocities they commit must be the fault of their victims; this has led many of  the  progressive intelligentsia to believe that  America had it coming on 9/11.  In similar fashion, Israel can never be the victim of the Arab world; the murder of Israelis by the Arab world must be Israel’s own fault.

 The gateway has been opened for mass propaganda and fabrication. It is no surprise that the industry of lies has centered much of their efforts within the Universities in America and Europe. The Universities, the custodians of reason and objective thought have thus been turned as far as Israel is concerned into the destroyers of reason. Moral and Cultural relativism have become the dominant mode of thinking in many of America’s University campuses. This must be exposed and stopped.

The ideology of Palestinian Arab nationalism has paved the way for the creation of modern terrorism. The systematic killing of civilians and the glorification of murder of innocents has become a worldwide phenomenon supported by the industry of lies. What began as the demonization and delegitimization of Israel has evolved into a threat on all Western nations. Everyday we are witnessing wanton acts of murder by a conglomeration of anti-Semites, Islam fascists, the extreme right, and the lunatic left working in unison in an unholy alliance.

 The Re-humanization of Israel and how she is portrayed in the media, whether broadcasted, printed, or internet can be a major first step in stopping the widespread corruption of right and wrong, of good and evil. Israel has over the course of history including the modern period triumphed over those that attempted to destroy Israel, the home of the Jewish people; demonization and delegitimization represent only the latest chapter of this eternal struggle.
