f you ask people what is the nearest star, if you get any answer at all, it will probably be Alpha Centauri. If you tell them that the nearest star is actually the Sun, they're likely to be surprised.
If you ask Americans, where the nearest holocaust was, they will say Auschwitz. If you tell them they are living on the site of a holocaust, they won't believe you.
If the end point of a holocaust is the practical extinction of a people, then living in the US is living on the site of a holocaust and it would be interesting to speculate on why there are no Indian Holocaust memorials like Auschwitz and Dachau dotting the landscape here.
Apropos of the American Indian Holocaust it might be appropriate to quote the order of our beloved Founding Father to Generals Sullivan and Clinton, who were in charge of the campaign to eliminate the threat of the Iroquois Nation (Six Nations) in New York:
George Washington wrote:
The Expedition you are appointed to command is to be directed against the hostile tribes of the Six Nations of Indians, with their associates and adherents. The immediate objects are the total destruction and devastation of their settlements, and the capture of as many prisoners of every age and sex as possible. It will be essential to ruin their crops now in the ground and prevent their planting more.
I would recommend, that some post in the center of the Indian Country, should be occupied with all expedition, with a sufficient quantity of provisions whence parties should be detached to lay waste all the settlements around, with instructions to do it in the most effectual manner, that the country may not be merely overrun, but destroyed.
Orders of George Washington
to General John Sullivan
May 31, 1779
In his report of the campaign General Sullivan wrote:
We moved, on the next day, to Chinesee [Genesee], crossing in our path a deep creek and the Little Seneca river, and after marching six miles we reached the castle, which consisted of 128 houses, mostly very large and elegant. The town was beautifully situated, almost encircled with a clear flat which extends for a number of miles, where the most extensive fields of corn were, and every kind of vegetable that can be conceived. The whole army was immediately engaged in destroying the crops. The corn was collected and burned in houses and kilns, that the enemy might not reap the least advantage from it, which method we have pursued in every other place... Every creek and river has been traced, and the whole country explored in search of Indian settlements; and I am well persuaded, that, except one... there is not a single town left in the country of the five nations.
General John Sullivan
Report to Congress
Tioga, New York, September 30, 1779
Sullivan's reference to the "five nations" means the Iroquois Nation, i.e., Seneca, Cayuga, Onondaga, Tuscarora, Oneida, and Mohawk, less the Oneida.
Washington's phrase, "…the capture of as many prisoners of every age and sex as possible." is an official euphemism. The armies in these expeditionary campaigns lived off the land. They had neither the manpower nor the resources to provide for tens of thousands of prisoners whose food and shelter had been destroyed. What happened is that they fled westward. There is no record of how many died of exposure and starvation in the winter of 1779/80.
Some people might argue that these events occurred while a revolution was in progress and that the "five nations" (not Washington's six) were providing aid and comfort to the British and thus the five nations got what they deserved. Therefore what happened to them is not a holocaust.
This argument cannot be acceptable because, aside from the barbarism against innocent persons that it rationalizes, it eliminates the very linguistic concept of a holocaust because every state easily and inevitably demonizes its enemies. Even the most publicized holocaust, the murder of six million Jews by the Nazis, vanishes into a debate about the validity of the Nazi's characterization of Jews and Bolsheviks as adequately synonymous and Bolshevism as a universal enemy and especially of their particular revolution.
Furthermore, long after the American Revolution was victorious and until late in the 19th century, the official destruction of the American Indians continued to be pursued.
After an extended visit to the US in 1832, Alexis de Tocqueville wrote:
In the heart of this society, so policed, so prudish, so sententiously moral and virtuous, one encounters a complete insensibility, a sort of cold and implacable egoism when it's a question of the American Indians. The inhabitants of the United States do not hunt the Indians with the hue and cry as did the Spaniards in Mexico. But it's the same pitiless instinct which animates the European race here as everywhere else.
The director of the Buffalo Historical Society wrote in 1889:
Why attempt to civilize the Indians, or ameliorate their supposed condition? Only teach them with the strong hand of power to fear our superior race and let them alone in their rapid decay, until like the bison of the western prairies they are obliterated from the earth, as one of the ancient, traditional races of men.
With a few minor changes, this sounds like something which could have come out of the Wannsee Conference.
n the same sense that the Iroquois Nation living in upstate New York were "inconvenient persons" to the process of colonization of the US, so are the Palestinians inconvenient to the Zionist colonizers of Palestine. Since the same forces are at work, it seems reasonable to infer from the earlier model what the Amero-Zionist project for the Palestinians is.
Reasoning from this model, the goal of Israel, with the full backing of the United States, is to repeat the latter's success in wresting possession of its territory from the people indigenous to it. The tactics used then were a relentless campaign of terrorism including military raids, destruction of villages and crops, assassination, alcohol addiction, germ warfare, and a slow herding of the demoralized survivors into concentration camps where they are free to degenerate into a parasitic class dependent on a share of the proceeds of gambling casinos.
This is the future planned for the Palestinians by the US and its Zionist lackey, a future where the residual and demoralized Palestinians will pander to the repressed desires of the Israeli proletariat instead of challenging the Zionist state for their rights as a sovereign people.
What we are witnessing in Palestine is a manifestation of a strategy recurrent in diplomatic history: State A maneuvers State B into a situation where its struggle for survival serves the interests of State A.
The Zionist leadership understood and understands this perfectly. It's a deal they signed up to a long time ago and from which there is now no turning back. The only way forward is a mass exodus to a place that will welcome them, in which they can restart their experiment of building a Zionist state and, hopefully, learn from the mistakes of the past.
