The way that American political leaders and the US mass media deal with the Israel-Palestine conflict is an expression of a corrupt, unhealthy society that ignores basic historical and political realities and betrays the principles it claims to uphold. America’s policy of ardent support for the Zionist state also puts the US increasingly at odds against the rest of the world — a dangerous position especially during this time of economic and political disarray. Already during the 1940s, the US Secretary of State and Secretary of Defense, and all senior US foreign policy specialists, accurately warned that American support for a Zionist state would create grave and steadily growing problems for the US and world. As the new US ambassador to Israel recently acknowledged, US policy in the Middle East is driven by concern for Israel’s interests — and not by what’s best for America and humanity.
Dr. Tom Sunic will speak at a seminar in Germany on Oct. 1, 2011. This literary seminar will feature several prominent German thinkers. The main theme of the event, which runs Sep. 30 and Oct 1-2, is Europa in Umbruch (“Europe in Upheaval”), exploring the role of Europe, Russia, and the idea of the Empire. Tom, in his speech Balkanisierung Europas; Umbruch oder die Endzeiten (“Balkanization of Europe; the Upheaval or the End Times”), will focus on “end times” as seen by a prominent German nationalist- conservative writer and novelist Ernst Juenger.
