Ed: The Zionist Story tells of the events that brought about and continued to support the Jewish state of Israel. The mainstream media was and still is controlled by Zionists. Thus, the media told and tells the story in a way that hides the key role Zionists played. It was, in a sense, a false flag, in that it blamed any negative aspects brought on by Zionists, on peoples or states other than Zionists or Israel. This, in essence, is a false flag, and the reason it is presented here along with “Other False Flags.”
The Zionist Story (2009), an independent film by Ronen Berelovich, is the story of ethnic cleansing, colonialism and apartheid to produce a demographically Jewish State.
Ronen successfully combines archival footage with commentary from himself and others such as Ilan Pappe, Terry Boullata, Alan Hart and Jeff Halper.
From the author: I have recently finished an independent documentary, The Zionist Story, in which I aim to present not just the history of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, but also the core reason for it: the Zionist ideology, its goals (past and present) and its firm grip not only on Israeli society, but also, increasingly, on the perception of Middle East issues in Western democracies.
These concepts have already been demonstrated in the excellent Occupation 101 (youtube version) documentary (screened here at Joyce Beers Center on July 13, 2014) made by Abdallah Omeish and Sufyan Omeish, but in my documentary I approach the subject from the perspective of an Israeli, ex-reserve soldier and someone who has spent his entire life in the shadow of Zionism.
Join us for a screening of the BBC Four Investigative Report USS Liberty: Dead in the Water (2002) for a primer on the USS Liberty Incident and its cover-up.
On the afternoon of June 8, 1967, during the Six-Day War, Israel attacked a virtually unarmed United States Navy intelligence-gathering vessel, the USS Liberty. The assault by unmarked jets and Israeli torpedo boats killed 34 and wounded 170 crew members. Rescue jets were deployed twice from the nearby Sixth Fleet, and twice the rescue jets were recalled by U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara. Help would not arrive until the next morning.
Israel has always claimed that the incident was a tragic accident based on mistaken identification, and publicly the Johnson Administration accepted this explanation. But, declassified White House meeting minutes and intercepts recorded during the incident suggest Washington believed the attack was intentional.
Was Israel trying to destroy evidence of war crimes intercepted by the USS Liberty? Did the U.S. cover up the incident to avoid embarrassment or public outrage? Was there a covert alliance between U.S. and Israeli intelligence to sink the USS Liberty? Was the USS Liberty incident intended to be a false flag event? Had the USS Liberty been successfully sunk, leaving no survivors, would the attack have triggered a nuclear assault on Cairo, Egypt?
Produced in Oklahoma, this film examines eyewitness testimony and expert research omitted from the official account of the event that took the lives of 168 people including 19 children.
As with the tragic events of September 11, 2001, the bombing of the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City left in its wake a trail of unanswered questions, an official story built on omissions and distortions, and justifications for draconian federal legislation.
