The New Nakba

The 1948 Palestinian exodus, also known as the Nakba (Arabic: النكبة‎, “al-Nakbah”, literally “disaster”, “catastrophe”, or “cataclysm”),[1] occurred when more than 700,000 Palestinian Arabs fled or were expelled from their homes, during the 1948 Palestine war.[2] The term “nakba” also refers to the period of war itself and events affecting Palestinians from December 1947 to January 1949.


History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.

Karl Marx

I do not admit that the dog in the manger has the final right to the manger, even though he may have lain there for a very long time. I do not admit that right. I do not admit, for instance, that a great wrong has been done to the Red Indians of America, or the black people of Australia. I do not admit that a wrong has been done to those people by the fact that a stronger race, a higher grade race, or, at any rate, a more worldly-wise race, to put it that way, has come in and taken their place. I do not admit it. I do not think the Red Indians had any right to say, ‘The American Continent belongs to us and we are not going to have any of these European settlers coming in here’. They had not the right, nor had they the power.

Winston Churchill

The abominable concept of ‘Nakba’ as clearance of an indigenous population from the Land known to them as ‘Home’ has existed, albeit under different names, since well before 1948AD and the establishment of Israel.

This demonstrated thru ‘precedent’ as acknowledged in the quote above from Winston Churchill, which includes the fleeing and expulsion of Red Indians from their home in the history of the United States of America and similarly as concerns the Aborigines in the history of Australia.

To such tragedy ‘long’ before ‘farce in the repetition’ as Marx paraphrased, could be added the  ‘Fuadach nan Gàidheal’ as Nakba of the Highlanders of Scotland in the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries – and such examples of ‘Nakba’ as in the above but the ‘thin end’ – as of it could take volume(s) to explicate the ‘wedge of illusion’ made thereof in course of the ‘History of Mankind’ – as tragically become but an ‘imperative of apperception controlled as issued’ – such the degeneration or debauch of ‘currency’ represented by ‘Apartheid’ and ‘Genocide’, such the ‘superiority’ asserted at a racist level – as the quote above from Churchill exemplifies to point epitomic, such the tragedy?

There nothing ‘new’, alas, in the concept of ‘Nakba’ as concerns the imposition of ‘stronger race’; much as there nothing ‘new’ in illusion would war upon Truth; ‘Nakba’ being ‘Age Olde’ such sense as the war which can be interpreted as: evil against Good or fascism against Democracy, or apartheid against Peaceful Co-existence ; this as synonymy, much as any Man as opposed to ‘Stateless Bastard‘ who would accordantly embrace ‘Home’ in living peaceful within as reflective of ‘gift’ from far greater sublimely ‘up against it’ – such the ‘degeneration’ as would be so pathologically twisted under pragmatism as to be resultant in ‘euphemism’ which would: disguise mere racism, distort memory thru ‘revisionism’ – and exercise thereby a ‘permit’ exacted – such the control and issue of ‘currency’ as can incorporate ‘conflation’ – in the transformation of tragedy to farce – as would ‘History’ itself be rendered incomprehensible to the abuse which ‘pragmatic’ – in reflecting the death of thought which would be euphemised as ‘Orthodoxy’?

Such the reverse ‘alchemy’ as mere propaganda as would be circumscribed ‘Geopolitical’ – such the prescience of Eric Arthur Blair?

‘Oceania has always been at war with Eastasia’ – as ‘Nakba’ enshrined Geopolitical as a mere racket?

‘Home’ being ‘something’ above and beyond the control and issue and manipulation of Geopolitics as a mere contemporaneity or currency, much as any People beyond the egregious characterisations of racism which, given the absence of acknowledgement as ‘denial’ which would be so abrogative of the sublime concept of the ‘Rights of Man’ – particularly in the abomination of the axiom of mere racketeers that: ‘(Military) Might is Right’ which ‘found’ – and continues to ‘find’, alas – ‘application’?

So to the tragic farce of ‘ISIS’ in the Twenty First Century AD and of such the loss as the

‘New Nakba’ as would be ‘writ large’ as ‘Historic’ – as in: farce born of illusion and the application of ‘Corporatist Might’ as the ‘Western World’ has come to ‘represent’; reflected alas, in the numbers of Mankind fleeing and in expulsion prevailing – and so commensurate the ‘geographical scale’ of impact made as mere abomination which illusion, under hegemony, would do its utmost to deny being acknowledged mere control and manipulation, such the pragmatics, such the tragedy as the Western Word become ‘farce’?

‘ISIS’ as the ‘richest’ terrorist ‘organization’ in the World today, should one elect to accept the mere hegemony of the ‘Western World’ as no more than a Corporatist ‘pipeline of lies’ – as these small quarters explicated but part of in a recent article, such the limitation(s) – and the questions, such the ‘Cui Bono’ test which ISIS demands asked?

(Do ISIS have their ‘own’ bank indeed, much as the ‘Libyan Transitional Council’ had, such the ‘repetition’, such the ‘farce’ as Marx illuminated?)

Or: are there ‘richer terrorists’ – such the ‘oxymoron’ – as would pass by quiet to a silent assassination: ‘mainstreamed’ thru happenstantial lack of observation or comment in the ‘Western World’ Corporatist Media, much as the farcical concept of ‘moderate terrorist’ by way of assassination would remain un-explicated – to the manifold and obscene ‘wet job’ darkness of the pipeline hegemonic: and so to an open mouthed incredulity of Citizenry as would precede further ‘ideological rape’ much as the shock would precede the awe – and this despite the promise reiterated, by way of ‘spoonful of sugar propaganda’ (as in ‘hope and change’ such the strap line), so continually in the ‘Western World’ to point of denial the eventual ‘stand up’ as in repeal as would there be a ‘reprieve’; and the bastard as would be stopped yet ‘arises’ again (these small quarters would before have used the term ‘comes’ as opposed to ‘arise’, but are mindful of a caution as to obscenity as brought to mind by an individual who elected to respond to a recent article. This being ‘said’, see below) – to another hot torrent of filthy lies which thru exercise of hegemony would be unseen as such – and to point of a ‘rebirth’ of tragedy as farce, such the this time around ‘so it goes’ – and, curt as spelled ‘Kurt’? (‘Nota Bene’ point 13 in the aforementioned hyperlink- should you so ‘elect’)

Indeed, as another Kurt (Weill) put it so apt in 1941AD:

For though the world has stood up and stopped the bastard, the bitch that bore him is in heat again’?

This ‘New Nakba’, such the ‘heat’, such the ‘bastard’ as would be; such the ‘bitch’?

‘It’ as would become ‘Ich, such the ‘Daddy’ as would be expressive of control and issue; as in the scale as reptilian of the ‘New Nakba’ as currently incorporates at the least Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya – and which represents a new level of farce which consideration of the Geopolitical dynamics as in the below only serves to ‘highlight’?

In such context one must remember the ‘prescience’ of Wesley Clark?

Are there Terrorists so ‘rich’ thru their expropriation and putrid racism that they can control and issue ‘currency’ so that they not seen as such – illusion being an ‘expensive business’?

-Particularly when it comes to the ‘Western World’ -and the austerity the Majority thereof currently experiencing by way of ‘happenstance’; such the filth as only lies told so calculative and elaborate can ‘realize’?

For, to the filth which is abuse-

No money for bread for the People – but plenty money for bombs – as can assist the ‘new Nakba’?

Laugh not, for you are paying for it as your read, such the subsistence as austerity entails?

While looking upon ISIS, context the ‘test’ as mentioned above – and as would assert true individuality thru Welstanschuung as being above and beyond the machinations of mere control and manipulation subjugate to ‘propaganda’, such the sine qua non of hegemony – and the Geopolitics concomitant; the test must be placed in ‘context'(?); where the real demand for ‘supplemental information’ as ‘supportive’ comes in to ‘play’ – which information would be censored under hegemony to point of denial of the ‘dots being joined up ‘correct” – as to any closer approximation of truth: ‘toxic’ as would be denied by illusion – such the mere censorship as Corporatist media entails by way of ‘takeover‘ – and the expulsion and flee of real Journalists, let alone real Politicians from the ‘Temple of Truth’ in the Western World?

Such the ‘R2P’ as but a racket extrapolated; such the ‘Hi-jack’ – such the ‘Panopticon’?

The ‘dots’ as would not be seen as ‘necessary’, (such the Orthodoxy in the ‘rammed down the throat’ force feed of ‘pap’) – precursor to the ‘forbidding of the joining’ in the ontology; such the abuse of ‘apperception’ as ‘Mainstream Media’ of the ‘Western World’ representing 99 and 44/100% pure ‘fix of intelligence around policy’- to pragmatics of the prostitution of the 16% by way of ‘Corporatism’ as an abomination: such the bastard as ‘austerity’ Incorporated Geopolitical, in a Theater of War which ‘sucks’ , and in which ‘Nakba’, and variants thereof, the ‘main feature’?

The percentage being as to the ‘Vig‘, such the racket?

The real tragedy this small article; as written by an ‘ 84% Subject’ of the ‘Western World’ such the ‘CounterPunch’ as would be against the ability to deny ‘Citizenry’ – much as there ‘permit to control and issue currency’ by way of ‘quintessence’ the further degeneration of tragedy to farce, so it goes as to the ‘happenstance’ to the ‘Nakba but re-dux’ as would be of the early 21st Century AD ‘unseen’ as ‘New!’, being as but part of the blanket of censorship – which would deny any mention of ‘Greater Israel’ as concerns even the possibility of it being related to the warfare ongoing in Syria?

Perish the thought’, indeed?

Alternatively, for further explication this ‘extempore as illuminating’ rejection of hegemony recommended.

Can you imagine either ‘the above’ being carried by Corporatist, Mainstream Media in the ‘Western World’?

Let alone ‘ISIS’ mentioned same breath as ‘Greater Israel’, such the ‘joining of the dots’ as would be denied by the ‘Western World’; – as the ongoing tragedy of Syria but another ‘Nakba’; much as the real power behind such ‘throne’ unacknowledged as but aspect of the abuse which ‘Corporatism’ represents – and as stems from the control and issue of currency as an abomination – which would be unrecognized as mere ‘usury’?

This, much as there can be yet ‘CounterPunch’ against emotional abuse which would, such the pragmatism, have the ‘Western World’ as but a thin end of the wedge going ‘gentle into that good night’ by way, such the bastard – as would be born of the bitch of ‘Zionism’, this instance of the heat being on?’

There, ‘it’ said now by way of question; and so much these small quarters feel the better for the articulation, such the catharsis as an expurgation of hegemony this way of ‘revolution’ as would be yet peaceful in face of the ‘New Nakba’ which would violently condemn so many more millions to flee or be expelled from their ‘homes’ – and to cause of what exactly; such the wall as would enshrine a mere poverty or austerity; but really which, such the ‘new boss’ only just the same as the ‘old boss’ as would be not ‘transcended’?

‘I am not a number, I am a free man!

– as Thomas M. Disch explicated?

‘Greater Israel’ indeed; such the immiseration as would be inflicted upon Humanity by way of tragedy become farce; by way of ‘wall’ and prohibition, as would deny ‘Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness’ as synonym of Liberté, égalité, fraternité; as would say, such the sharp end as ‘thin’ of the wedge applied to an innocent child of a ‘lesser race’ to threat by a gun bearing adult of ‘superior race’ : Pick up the knife!’ – as an act of execution ‘rationalized’ – or as much as a ‘Political Representative’ can state, such the ‘Nakba asserted’ as the right of a superior race:-as Israeli MP Ayelet Shaked would represent, when ‘speaking’ of the remaining Palestinian Arabs in ‘Israel’: ‘Kill the mothers to stop other little snakes being born’

-With same shameful abomination as abrogation of Humanity being ‘advance’ upon the ‘dogs in the manger’ statement of the racialist as much as Zionist Churchill?

Such the ‘New Nakba’ would be rationalized – much as there can be plea of: ‘poor diseased bastard become Stateless!’ such as had once the capacity to rage against the dying of the light cut out at the incept; such the ‘happenstance’ indeed as arrogation; such the austerity, indeed?

Before the abrogation as made of ‘Fortunate ‘Son” – as much as Ayelet Shakad a Woman, same sense as would be ‘Hillary ‘we came, we saw , he died’, Clinton’?

And this a ‘luxury’ which the mercenaries of ISIS find unaffordable to extent of ‘their own’ abrogation of Humanity as ‘Dogs of War Incorporated’, such the cry of ‘Havoc!’ as echoes but putrescent lie – as the chamber of ‘Nakba! demands’?

– Any Nakba entailing a ‘deliberation’, so it goes to the denial of ‘happenstance’?

The abiding question being: if ‘ISIS’ so radical as ‘Muslim Force’ can go then why have they not attacked Israel by now? (Though it notable that there have been attacks on UNDOF in the Golan Heights by Syrian rebels, and further to such questions this an outstanding example of genuine Geopolitical analysis as a joining up of the dots which would be unseen – let alone joined up?

Do the questions of Muammar Gaddafi in his last days as to the funding of the mercenary army before it became known as ‘ISIS’ and such the recognition as would be denied of the duplicity of the ‘Western World’ as ‘richest terrorist’, such the hi-jack as evident in the subsidy of Zionism despite the austerity prevalent for the indigenous population of same ‘Western World’, have any resonance of validity at all?

Perchance one should ask the Neocons, or PNAC, or Dov Zakheim – or those who control and issue the currency of the Unites States, such the meaning of ‘The New Nakba’; as evidenced in the Corporatist degeneration of Democracy and the forced expulsion or flee of human beings from the Institutions of same reflected?

Such the real ‘Exodus’ indeed as concerns ‘Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness’ no more by way of mere racket?

Indeed, such the permit revoked as in:
