Israel Admits: "Our Troops Are Psychopaths!"

Yesterday's radio guest Gordon Duff just broke a big story:

GORDON DUFF: ISRAEL CLAIMS “NO PTSD IN IDF,  JEWS IMMUNE TO MENTAL ILLNESS”: STUDY COMPARES “RESETTLING PALESTINIANS” WITH WARS IN IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN

Gordon is skeptical of the Zionist claim that their troops, unlike American soldiers, don't suffer from PTSD. If this is true, Gordon says, maybe it's because American soldiers are fighting and dying for a Zionist-orchestrated series of lies, and are treated like "broken toys" when they come home; while Israeli soldiers are committing genocide for their own national benefit, and are relatively well-treated by their US-taxpayer-funded regime.

But there is a simpler explanation: In claiming that its soldiers are immune to PTSD, Israel is implicitly confessing that its troops are psychopaths.

 In On Killing: The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society, Lt. Col. Dave Grossman shows that throughout history, 5% of the soldiers -- the psychopaths and borderline psychopaths -- have done 95% of the killing. As Grossman explains, studies by S.L.A. Marshall and associates showed that the vast majority of World War II infantry soldiers found ways to avoid firing at the enemy; and archeological evidence suggests that the same was true of previous wars.

Normal human beings can only kill at tremendous psychological cost, and thus find ways to avoid killing on the battlefield, even if it means losing their own lives. A non-psychopath who kills in wartime will almost certainly suffer some form of PTSD upon returning to civilian life.

Marshall's studies spurred the development of intensive Pavlovian conditioning methods that raised the shoot-to-kill ratio to 50% in the Korean war, and 90% in Vietnam. That, Grossman suggests, is why PTSD rates skyrocketed. Normal, non-psychopathic men were being effectively turned into killers for the first time in history. When they came home, they couldn't live with themselves.

It is a tribute to the American character -- to the fact that only about 5% of American men are psychopaths -- that our troops suffer from so much PTSD.

The Israelis, on the other hand...how to put this politely?

Andrzej Lobaczewski, in his seminal study of political psychopathy Political Ponerology, writes:

"The pathocratic phenomenon [a society ruled by psychopaths and those who catch the psychopathic contagion] has appeared many times in history...[it sometimes] occurs when the religious association itself succumbs to infection...succumbs to destruction from within, its organism becomes subordinated to goals completely different from the original idea, and its theosophic and moral values fall prey to characteristic deformation, thereby serving as a disguise for domination by pathological individuals. The religious idea then becomes both a justification for using force and sadism against nonbelievers, heretics, and sorcerers, and a conscience drug for people who put such inspirations into effect."

Clearly the "religious idea" of Zionism has undergone this kind of pathological shift. Israel is a psychopathic state par excellence. Its soldiers slaughter innocent Palestinian children by the hundreds as they play on sidewalks and schoolyards as a de facto national policy:

"Two thirds of the 621 children (two thirds under 15 years) killed at checkpoints, in the street, on the way to school, in their homes, died from small arms fire, directed in over half of cases to the head, neck and chest - the sniper's wound...Clearly, soldiers are routinely authorised to shoot to kill children in situations of minimal or no threat." (British Medical Journal 10/16/04)

There are countless eyewitness accounts of these child-killings. For example, Chris Hedges,  one of our nation's most respected journalists,  wrote in Harper's magazine (October 2001) that he had been in several war zones,  but he had never seen soldiers luring children within range of their guns, then gut-shooting them for sport, until he saw Israeli soldiers doing it in the Occupied Territories. 

The Israeli soldiers who gut-shoot Palestinian children for sport apparently feel no remorse, and therefore suffer from no PTSD. Israeli society and its judicial system feel no remorse either, which is why they never prosecute the child-killers, and why polls show that more than 90% of Israeli Jews approve of the criminal destruction of Gaza by Operation Cast Lead.

 A society that slaughters innocent children without remorse is a society of psychopaths.

  1. What is that conditioning? Mind Control techniques of subliminal hypnotic imprinting after sleep deprivation using drugs and isolation chambers and then reinforced in a chorus of martial music, blood-thirsty sloganeering?

    Have we gone from the 'Manchurian Candidate' to the mass psychosis of the US military war machine Inc.?

    That 5% mushrooming to 50% in Korea and 90% in Viet Nam, must be fully investigated and that perversion ended ASAP! It also explains the rash of murders of wives by returning US war vets, as well as the astronomical suicide rate above and beyond those killed by those defending themselves, their family, communities, and country; from the foreign invaders to have come to occupy and assassinate anyone honorable enough to fight back as they should, in a war of deception by motive - 9/11 - and therefore, an illegal war of aggression in violation of the Nuremberg Principles' prohibition of Crimes Against Humanity and War Crimes.

    Troubling too is the report this week on the known genocidal effect of depleted uranium (DU) Fallujah: '...“Young women in Fallujah in Iraq are terrified of having children because of the increasing number of babies born grotesquely deformed, with no heads, two heads, a single eye in their foreheads, scaly bodies or missing limbs. In addition, young children in Fallujah are now experiencing hideous cancers and leukemias...'

    That is American psychopaths, one being:'... General James “Mad Dog” Mattis, who played a key planning role in the US assault on Fallujah in 2004. Mattis revels in killing, telling a public gathering in 2005 “it’s fun to shoot some people.... You know, it’s a hell of a hoot.”

    Both quoted excerpts are from: www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=20241

    From 5% to 90%, must be mirrored in the general civilian population, with conditioning being in kindergarten up through college!

    Psychotic Americans in the majority? Music, Hollywood, and the censorship and purging of healthy contrary perspectives must be at the hub of the US imperial war machine!

  2. I'm against these insane wars in the Middle East for Israel and the Military Industrial Complex. Yes, 9/11 was an inside job carried out by criminal elements within the US government and the Israeli Mossad.

    With that being said the Muslim "religion" is a cult whipped up out of thin air by a brigand named muhammad in order to control the barbarian Arab tribes so they could embark upon a war of conquest in order to spread this evil and Demonic cult. Anybody can co-opt aspects of legitimate religions like Christianity and Judaism in order to lend credence to it. It doesn't make it real.

    The news is replete with beheadings of hapless criminals from Iran to Indonesia. Muslim fathers routinely kill their daughters if they go out on a date with a non-muslim. The atrocities committed by members of this "religion" of "peace" are endless. You can't blame the Jews and the CIA for that. And don't try to talk about so-called Christian atrocities. Because evil acts committed by people claiming to be Christians go against the tenets of the religion they purport to believe in whereas in the muslim "faith" all these evil acts are sanctioned by your little fantasy book called the koran.

    If this email was disseminated throughout the Muslim world at large there would be dozens of "holy men" issuing a fatwa for my execution! And don't tell me any different because you know it's true. So I would appreciate it if you would delete this after you read it so I won't become another casualty of your so-called religion.

  3. Michael,
    Instead of deleting your email, I have posted it here, along with your name and email address. I will be copying it and sending it to my list of thousands of my fellow Muslims. Guess what? Nobody is going to issue any "fatwas" against you! We just feel sorry for you, because you're so paranoid, deluded, and misinformed. Once your email has been posted publicly here at my "radical Muslim website" and sent out to my Muslim list, and you discover that not a single one of the thousands of Muslims who will read it will call for any violence against you, perhaps it will help you awaken from your paranoid delusion.

    May Allah bless you and help you rediscover your original fitrah.

  4. I would add only the US has had its share of psychopaths. Abu Ghraib shows Israel does not have a monopoly. There are also many incidents of US military and mercenary forces killing and raping Iraqi civilians. Blackwater's Nisoor Square incident in Baghdad from September 2007 comes to mind. I am not excusing Israel I just believe the US enabler needs to be added here.

    Nice little intro before laying into the type of buffoonesque speech we've heard a hundred thousand times from idiots in mainstream land.

    It's good that you dont have a similar speech to make about Judaism, because that would make you a racist. Stick to Islam, fair game for the weak.

  6. Dr. Arnold A. Hutchnecker's 1974 study published under the title, "Mental Illness: The Jewish Discease" which concluded that “although all Jews are not not metally ill, mental illness is highly contagious and Jews are the principal sources of infection”....

  8. All Muslims practice non neonatal circumcision. Would all Muslims not be suffering PTSD?
