 Joe Biden, politician.

“Genocide Joe” protestors call the President of the United States with good reason. Biden’s vociferous support for arming Israel and sending it trillions of dollars when he was a young senator was played on television. The Open Secrets database which monitors the US Congress wrote: “During his 36 years in the Senate, Biden was the chamber's biggest recipient in history of donations from pro-Israeli groups, taking in $4.2 million.” Biden’s unflinching support for Israel and his refusal to stop Israel from massacring Palestinians in Gaza has revealed the shallowness of the man. He has been foremost in giving Israel the latest weaponry, the jet fighters and bombers, the unlimited government payments while watching Israelis imprison Palestinians without trial, try children for alleged crimes and locking them away for years while terrorizing the Palestinians in the West Bank, shooting them with impunity and imprisoning the people of Gaza, treating them as prisoners, humiliating them, killing them with the approval of the United States and its satellites such as Canada. Now that Israel’s continuous bombing of Gaza has claimed over 16,000 Palestinians, 70% of whom are women and children and hundreds of thousands of citizens around the world are protesting the genocide and U.S. warships protecting Israel from reprisal by nations calling for a ceasefire and threatening to intervene, Biden and his spokesmen who have repeated the Israeli propaganda like parrots, claim they have empathy with the Palestinians and are requesting Israel to treat its victims with humanity. The citizens of the United States, although besieged with television commentators to pity Israel and its suffering from an attack on its citizens by Hamas, the militant arm of the Gaza inhabitants, have turned against Biden and his quest to be re-elected as President.

Jewish Americans have organized powerful lobbies to champion Israel in the media which is controlled by Zionists who censure comment detrimental to Israel. Congressmen have taken their money to win elections and, having sold their souls, went so far as to censure the only Palestinian-American congresswoman for pleading for Palestinian lives.

Biden and his intelligence agencies must have known of the Hamas attack a year before it happened. Its blueprint depicting the machinery and routes of the attackers were in the hands of Israeli intelligence yet no precaution was taken. Rather Israeli soldiers stationed where the attack was to break onto Israeli soil were sent to the West Bank ostensibly to stop the illegal Israeli settlers from attacking Palestinian villages—a common occurrence.

“If we look at it over the years, one of the main people contributing to Hamas’s strengthening has been (Prime Minister) ‘Bibi’ Netanyahu,” said Yuval Diskin, head of Israel’s Shin Bet security service between 2005 and 2011. Former prime minister Ehud Barak agreed, telling Army Radio in 2019: “Netanyahu’s strategy is to keep Hamas alive and kicking ... in order to weaken the Palestinian Authority in (the West Bank).” Their shared political goal is to thwart the famous “two-state solution,” in which Jewish and Palestinian Arab states would live side by side in peace on the land between the Jordan River and the sea.

Now Netanyahu, for months besieged by protestors opposed to his weakening of the courts to prevent his conviction for crimes while he ran his far-right government, had an excuse for diverting attention to the defence of Israel and the extermination of the Palestinian people. He claimst that it is really the Hamas soldiers he wants to erase. His language and that of his cabinet comes from the mind of a psychopath. Can Biden’s cool indifference to the genocide reflect a psychopathic temperament? His opponent for the presidency, Donald Trump, is psychopathic. Biden claims he is running for re-election because the dangerous Trump is running. What are his chances for re-election?

His allegiance to Israel at all cost has lost him the support of many blacks and the young voter who gets news from the internet to avoid the bias of the networks. Many Democrats have been complaining that he is too old. He walks with pigeon steps and talks through a speech impediment that makes him slur his words. In a word he lacks charisma which his opponent has in spades.

Trump is threatening to be a dictator and millions of Republicans will vote for him. Biden’s stubbornness may lead to his biggest mistake. I recall watching one of his mistakes made while chairman of the Senate Committee that approved Clarence Thomas’ election for the Supreme Court despite credible evidence that he sexually abused his female law clerk. Biden sided with the President and his powerful colleagues rather than support a brave young woman warning the nation about Thomas. These many years laterThomas is found to be the most corrupt influence on the court and a strong supporter of Trump whose corruption will destroy the United States if he is elected. Another mistake Biden admits was his support for the war on Iraq. “Mistake” is the word Americans use rather than “war crime”.

The emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, has described Israel’s military campaign in Gaza as a “genocide” and said it was a disgrace that the international community had not stopped “this heinous crime”. To which I say “Amen.”

After 21 days of Israel’s War on Gaza’s inhabitants, over 7,000 Palestinians are dead from unrelenting air strikes, mainly women and children, with thousands more expected to die from Israel’s refusal to let food, water, electricity, and medicines into the Gaza prison which Jewish guards have controlled for decades by punishing regulations and periodic killings. Journalists risking their lives to report Israel’s war crimes, have lost 27 of their number under indiscriminate bombing so far. King Abdullah of Jordan’s accusing Israel of treating non Jews as inferior humans is a good starting point for understanding this conflict. 

Yahweh, the Jewish war god, killed off the other gods, and as a revengeful psychopath demanded absolute obedience from his people. The psychoses that a psychopath imparts on his children, who are bound in Jewishness worldwide as their identity and has no belief in after-life as an escape, brands them with guilt, a sense of superiority and an assumption of innocence in the face of lesser humans who are intrinsically evil. Jews may manipulate and even exterminate the “others” with a clear conscience.

Laurent Guyénol in his insightful book From Yahweh to Zion (2018) writes: “In certain essential aspects, Judaism is a form of ‘collective sociopath.’ This does not mean that ‘the Jews’ are sociopaths, but rather that they are victims of a mental trap inherited from their ancestors and imposed by their elites. The difference between collective sociopathy and individual sociopathy according to Freud: participation in a collective sociopathic mentality allows members of the community to channel sociopathic tendencies toward the outside of the community , and to maintain within it a high degree of sociability.” The paradigm of the Jewish group soul “connects  each Jew to the millions  of Jewish victims of Nazism.” “Every Jew killed is a potential genocide; whoever kills a Jew kills the Jewish people. . . .any terrorist act will always be automatically interpreted by Israel as the simulacrum on a small scale of the generalized massacre of an entire population. Here, I think, we have a psychological key to understanding the nature of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.”

The unconscionable support of the United States of Israel against the Palestinians by supplying  it with billions of dollars, the latest weaponry and aircraft on the canard that it has the right to defend itself—against an impoverished, imprisoned people with home-made weapons, can be attributed to the Jewish power over the media and many years of manipulating the politicians and government officials as well as “the Judaization of Christianity” culminating in American Evangelical Christianity as powerful allies of Zionism. The cries of the world’s nations for a cease fire vetoed by the U.S. condemns the Americans as complicit in the genocide. US. Officials such as President Biden and Blinken mouth the words of the psychopath leaders of Israel to the everlasting shame of the population they represent.

Confident in its power the U.S. is ready to challenge with war any nation driven to rescuing the Palestinians to the extent that a World War might ensue. Yahweh, the god of war, a myth becomes a reality.

“Jewishness seems to induce a blind spot among some high-level intellectuals: they become irrational as soon as they approach a subject with any relationship to their community,” Guyénol writes, “as if an unconscious imperative—some programmed subroutine in the superego—suddenly short-circuited their objectivity.”

Israeli-Gaza (Palestinian) War, October 2023

 I share the dread of watching US  and Canadian news coverage of wars that many feel. I turn to Al-Jazeera for balanced reporting. Israel’s defence minister calls Palestinians “human animals.” Its prime minister wants to annihilate them. Nothing new here. Israel has practiced terrorism from its early formation and with annual billions of dollars and the latest sophisticated  weaponry given it by wayward Americans it has bombed and beaten the Palestinians into enclaves. For a long time Palestinians had stones to defend themselves. Israelis broke the children’s hands for throwing them. Yes, Gaza was turned into the largest open air prison and its citizens endured periodical bombing for decades which had to have a psychological effect. To understand their plight, for example 248 Palestinians killed by Israelis between January 1 and 4 October and thousands of Palestinians in Israeli prisons without trial, I ask Biden and Trudeau to put themselves in their shoes. The Hamas incursion into Israel was not terrorism; it was men driven to madness and certain oblivion. Inhumanity arises from hatred, of which both sides are guilty. The solution is not more weapons, more  “double standard”, more cries for revenge but an honest attempt to free the Palestinians and make the lying far right Israeli government accede to a Palestinian state. 

David Richard Beasley, Simcoe, ON


There is fear in the pit of my stomach

Television shows me impending doom

Israel with all its weapons will kill

At long last the offending Palestinians

Their buildings blasted to crush them.

My stomach turns when I see TV

The righteous Jews and their acolytes 

Official faces once excited by politics

Now creased in hatred at invaders

Who dared shoot innocents on their land

Driven by madness, rampant, insatiable.

Decades of humiliation, persecution within

Terror, fanaticism, revenge without.

Too late armed Israelis stopped the slaughter

Their great army, tanks and cannons

Ready to crush the bombed ruins of Gaza.

Americans exhibit butchered babies on TV

—To justify the coming genocide of a people

Trapped in their prison by sadists.—

Propaganda in a world led by psychopaths.

Questions arise how could this happen?

Frantic to hide their incompetence

Israel’s leaders call the invaders “animals”

Blaming a failure of intelligence

Which monitors every movement in Gaza

Egyptian intelligence warned them of invasion

An awkward news item to be managed

Israeli troops stationed elsewhere

As if the nation had no care

Israel’s furious rioters calmed by the holiday

Its criminal leader keeping them at bay.

I rage at the hypocrisy

At Western duplicity

Weaponizing a people of greed

Sanctimonious in religion

As if a god would sanctify their deeds.

Palestinian children dying in scores

Bereft of medicine, food, water and love

Awaiting the crushing of tanks

While their parents wail in peril.

The future lies in wait

To erupt in Armageddon

There is fear in the pit of my stomach

Television shows me impending doom.

I watched habitually Lawrence O’Donnell weekday evenings at 10 o’clock on MSNBC. I like the lawyers he asked to analyze the charges against D. J. Trump and his stern denouncements of the cruelty to children, the hypocrisy of politicians and the stupidities of officials in government and business. In the early days of the Gaza—Israeli War he showed a large crowd of Jewish residents in Brooklyn clamouring outside Senator  Schumer’s house with signs pleading that he stop the genocide of Palestinians before switching to Schumer speaking in Israel. Schumer had ignored his constituents to bemoan the attack by Hamas, praise Israel and vow solid support for it without a word for the Palestinians. Was O’Donnell emphasizing the hypocrisy of the politician against the genuine feelings of the Jews who understood only too well the murderous intentions of the right-wing government in Israel? From his blanket endorsement of Jewish politicians and retired generals fiercely calling for the annihilation of Hamas, I assumed not. I was disgusted by O’Donnell. Any sense of justice, any scrap of integrity he may have shown was lost. Had he surrendered his soul to the station’s owners? or the lock-step orders of government minders?

The wholesale destruction of Gaza and slaughter of thousands of Palestinians and the complicity of the United States in these war crimes will never be forgiven by the world. We all, including Jews, knew from history that Israel was incapable of reason, let alone mercy. I quote from a respected online newsletter: “In Gaza, Israel is gearing up to commit genocide. It is not doing so quietly. It is repeating its intent every day, announcing it to the world in both its words and actions. Israeli Defence Minister Yoav Gallant described those in Gaza as ‘human animals’ while declaring that Israel was cutting off water, fuel, electricity and food to the entire blockaded strip. Likud officials have called for nuclear strikes as well as a second Nakba. Israel’s President, Isaac Herzog, has rejected the distinction between civilians and combatants, asserting that ‘it is an entire nation out there that is responsible’. Israeli military officials have made clear that their aim is ‘damage, not precision’. All the while, Israel has subjected the 365-square-kilometre area to relentless shelling, dropping the same number of bombs on its 2.3 million inhabitants as the United States unleashed on Afghanistan in an entire year at the height of its murderous invasion. Hospitals, mosques, schools and homes – all have been deemed adequate military targets. . . ."

As of last count over 4,000 Palestinians have been killed, including great numbers of children,  many thousands wounded, Lawrence, whom I hope will stop his constant praise of Joe Biden, sycophant, whom Netanyahu embraced and then ignored.

A news item in the Toronto Star that York University officials demand that Student Union newspapers erase their championing of the Palestinians demonstrates how controlled such organizations are and how out of touch they are with the feelings for humanity that are being express by protestors in the streets of cities throughout the world.

 Through Paphlagonia with a Donkey: an Adventure in the Turkish Isfendiyars has been reissued after 30 years out of print. When first published in New York City in 1983 it had much praise. One journalist called it 100 times better than Steinbeck's Travels with Charley that was in the bestseller column then. It has not lost its appeal. It is timeless. I, David Beasley, will launch it at The Ledge, 31 Norfolk St, North, Simcoe, ON on May 27, Saturday afternoon, between 2 and 5 pm. Some of my other books will be there if you want some signed.
