In order to deny their own criminality, they must then project that criminality on to other people. And you will see then a standard feature of White American society is that of projecting criminality on non-white people. Black people, Indians, Iraqis, it doesn’t matter. In fact, a part of the New World Order is to demonize the Third World, and use that world as a means of attacking it, and exploiting it, and maintain imperial control over it, and it will do that by demonizing and criminalizing non-white people. We’ve seen it in Grenada, as I mentioned, we’ve seen it in Iraq.
And now you can bet your bottom dollar that these people are in search of other enemies at this point. Because, ladies and gentlemen, the military industrial complex is a complex that needs a chronic enemy because that complex has become so vital to American economic stability. So consequently, the nation literally has to stay in a permanent war-mode. Consequently then, it is literally forced to demonize other people and to criminalize other people as a basis for maintaining it’s own economic, social system.
This is what we say is a scapegoat psychology. Some people were baffled when Bush in a matter of a month or two could turn Hussein from a friend into a devil. But when you understand what we call Realpolitiks, there’s nothing baffling about it at all. Because the one constant that goes on in foreign policy is that of self-interest. And that’s the only thing you’re concerned with. If it maintains your self-interest at one moment to say a person is your best friend, then you say that they’re your best friend. If it maintains your self-interest to the very next month to say that they’re your bitterest enemy, then you say they’re your bitterest enemy. Nations do not have permanent friends; they have permanent interests. And consequently, when nations try to maintain their so-called internal coherence, they will make or break outsiders as a means of doing so.
Unfortunately they don’t know what Zionism is. Zionism is a political philosophy which has brought about the so-called state of Israel. This political philosophy has nothing to do with religion. On the contrary, it seeks to confuse others and let them think that Zionism and Judaism is one in the same. I am a conscious African. I know properly my history. I know that Africa gave Judaism to the world. I know that the first Jews in the world were African. Not only do I know this, but I inform everyone who has doubts about it to read a book by Sigmund Freud entitled “Moses and Monotheism” as a beginning. Consequently, I know that Judaism and Zionism are not the same.
Zionism had its first organization expressions in 1897 in Switzerland, in Europe. Here was a man by the name of Theodor Herzl; he was the founder of Zionism. He said that he was going to find the state that God promised the Jews. Listen to this very carefully. This man Herzl was an atheist. He believed there was no God. He said God did not exist. How is a man that believes that God does not exist, is going to find a state that God promised to his chosen people. I tell you, this man is Satan in disguise.
Zionism is a Satanic movement. It is devil. It is Imperalism, it is racist; it has gone and taken the land of the Palestinian people, and through terrorism has driven them out, and through terrorism, it maintains its power. And the United States of America, with over 6,000,000 homeless, sends to Israel billions and billions and billions of dollars everywhere to bomb Palestinian people while homeless people are here and unemployed are here. Zionism is going to raise this war and make the people of America become clear to what it is, and become anti-Zionist, and stop the aid to Israel, and use the money to take care of the homeless in this country.
Kwame Ture (Stokely Carmichael) on Zionism.
Answer to question: You also mention Zionism and said that some our young people in the Persian Gulf may not understand the role that Zionism is playing in this conflict. Could you explain what you mean by that?
