LaRouche Issues a Blunt Warning
The two most urgent American responses to the attacks on the country on Sept. 11, have not yet been carried out. Those required responses are to push through a peaceful solution to the Middle East conflict, which otherwise is headed toward the general religious war conflagration the conspirators of Sept. 11 wanted; and to take measures to stop the collapse of the U.S. and world economy.
To stop the apparently irreversible descent of the Mideast into war requires that the peace initiatives of Presidents Bush and Putin be backed by a worldwide understanding of just what the insanity of the policy of the Sharon government in Israel is. That means heeding the "blunt warning" of EIR Founding Editor and Presidential pre-candidate Lyndon LaRouche, against "the insane fascism of Ariel Sharon," which will lead to the self-destruction of Israel and its future vilification as guilty of hideous crimes against the Palestinian and Arab people. That warning has been circulating around the world since Dec. 9.
"Israel under the current Sharon dictatorship," LaRouche said, "is a Nazi-like, fascist regime in the footsteps of Napoleon I, Napoleon III, the Carlists of Spain, Benito Mussolini, and Adolf Hitler. In the pre-history of modern Israel, the most notable roots of fascism are traced from the Odessa of the days of the Okhrana's Colonel Zubatov, the Odessa of the common associates of Alexander Helphand ('Parvus') and Vladimir Jabotinsky. The principal immediate antecedent of political fascism in Israel is the influence of Jabotinsky. Jabotinsky's organization of his fascist movement was situated principally in the Italy of Jabotinsky's Venice associate Volpe di Misurata, Benito Mussolini, Ezra Pound, and Jay Lovestone's crony, James Jesus Angleton, et al.
"Fascism," LaRouche clarifies, "as fascists such as Napoleon Bonaparte defined his fascism, and Mussolini and Hitler theirs, is a form of murderous tyranny created in explicit imitation of the Romantic tradition of the ancient Caesars. It was created out of the rubble of Immanuel Kant's empiricist 'Enlightenment,' as a counterforce to the impact of the American Revolution of 1776-1789, first in France. It was launched under the conditions that the world of the Habsburg tyranny was crumbling. The intent was always a rebirth of Roman Caesarism.
"Within Judaism's ranks, fascism found its most immediate enemy in the Judaism of Moses Mendelssohn and the Yiddish Renaissance. In Israel today, a Nazi-like form of fascist tyranny is centered in the currently ruling, Bonapartist consulate of the ruling circles of the IDF. In the background, we find that the corrupting influence of existentialism, as spread back into Israel by the arguments of Martin Buber, has been the corrosive, anti-Mendelssohn sickness, which made possible a widespread abandonment of everything precious which the Mendelssohn-led reform and the Yiddish Renaissance had contributed to European civilization at large. Today, any American Jew who wishes to know what Nazism was, and who supports the present rampage of Sharon and the IDF directorate, need but stand before the mirror, and look into his own hate-filled, enraged eyes. Take the case of wild-eyed Congressman Tom Lantos, for example."
LaRouche concluded with a warning that Israel faces doom, if the policies of Sharon are not abandoned:
"All among those of us who understand the strategic implications of the role currently assigned to those Israeli Ceasars, know with certainty, as martyred Prime Minister Rabin knew, that the end result of what Sharon and his IDF masters are doing, will be the obliteration of Israel, with the construction of the Third Temple on the site of al-Haram al-Sharif as its crematorium, its 'Masada.' Is the Washington Post, for example, supporting Israel? Does one describe a man who throws a hand grenade as a supporter of that hand grenade? If Israel's Nazis did not exist, the haters of Judaism would have probably had to have created them."
