===================================================================================

It’s all lies: The dishonest basis for an unwinnable war: ISIS version.

ISIS is Islam. Do not be deceived by lies. ISIS is cruel in its methods and extreme in its beliefs, but at its core, it is Islam.

Many Muslims feel that Christianity is evil, amoral and blasphemous, and most importantly, that Christianity wishes to defeat and ultimately eliminate Islam.

For thirteen hundred years it has been thus.

Christianity proselytizes. That is a fundamental. Christianity sends missionaries over the world, missionaries whose raison d’etre it is to convert people from “inferior” or “ignorant” faith.

Is it any wonder that Islam resents this? Is it any wonder that so many Muslims reject what it sees as the attempted Christianization (aka “Westernization”) of its women, of its children, of its mores?

We all are led by the extreme versions of what is in our hearts. So when America’s extreme right wing declares that “America is a Christian nation,” many moderate Christians may object as a matter of law, but in their hearts and souls, this indeed is a Christian nation — or should be.

Eliminate the beheadings, and ISIS is the Crusades — or perhaps, more accurately, ISIS is the Crusades, including the beheadings. But, ISIS is an internecine war, Muslim against Muslim, and that should make all the difference.

President Barack Obama, leader of the Christian world, righteously declares a different phase in a thirteen hundred year war. Now we shall attempt yet another Crusade. We shall exterminate ISIS (an impossible task) and we shall enlist Muslim nations to assist us (even less likely than “impossible”)?

Think: Despite centuries of religious wars, what religion, even what sect, has been exterminated? Consider the Inquisition. Consider the Holocaust. Consider the massive cruelty, hatred, incredible time and effort devoted to exterminating one tiny religion. What has been the result?

And now we wish to exterminate ISIS??

Will we succeed just as our endless wars against al Qaeda, recreational drugs, alcohol and crime succeeded?

And Barack Obama, leader of the Christian world, says he wishes to enlist Muslim nations to help exterminate ISIS. And this, he tells us, is for moral reasons. ISIS is evil, and it is our given mission and right to eliminate evil.

All morality. All righteousness. All lies.

The only assistance the Christian world will receive from the Muslim world, will come from Islamic dictators, afraid ISIS will infringe on their personal dictatorial power. And even then, the assistance will be tentative and grudging.

Soon, more American children will be mutilated, suffer and die in another endless, useless war. It is necessary that they die to prove the evils of Islam. All religious wars must have martyrs as symbols of the other side’s depravity.

And for what? Does ISIS threaten secular America? Is this band of thousands likely to overturn the mightiest war machine the world ever has known?

Or does ISIS threaten Christian America?

Number of Muslims in the U.S. doubles since 9/11
Mormonism grows 45% and spreads across nation

Data released Tuesday from the 2010 U.S. Religion Census shows Islam was the fastest growing religion in America in the last 10 years, with 2.6 million living in the U.S. today, up from 1 million in 2000.

Mormonism too saw remarkable growth, with a 45% increase in adherents. It added nearly 2 million members since 2000, bringing their number in the U.S. to 6.1 million.

In the Midwest and parts of the South there are now more Muslims than Jews for the first time.

Is this what America fears: 2.6 million Muslims, up 1.6 million in ten years, in our nation of 316 million people?

And if so, will the war on ISIS help slow the growth of Islam in America — or increase it? What exactly does America want? What would victory look like?

ISIS has killed a handful of Americans; now soon thousands more Americans will die in the futile attempt to eliminate ISIS. What would victory look like?

More and more young Americans are being swept into radical Islam as a result of Christian America’s attempt to crush ISIS. What would victory look like?

Who wants this unwinnable war? Who benefits from this unwinnable war?

Yes, the military manufacturers, the makers of tanks, guns, ships, planes, rockets and boots.

Yes, the military itself, for nothing creates big budgets and fast promotions like war.

Yes, the politicians, who long have known there is no better way to be elected than to act tough in the face of an enemy, real or imagined.

And yes, the religious leaders, who righteously call for peace, while using war as a recruitment tool for “us versus them.”

What is our alternative?

Do nothing. Isis’s war is intramural, Muslim against Muslim.

It is not America against any other nation, unless we make it so. As a nation, we have no national enemies in the Mideast and, but for Israel, we have no national friends. So what would victory look like?

In this religious war, whom shall we support and whom shall we make our enemy? Shia? Sunni? Quranist? Sufist?

Which Islamic denomination shall we fight in Iraq and which in Iran? With which do we hope to ally in Syria? In Turkey? In Egypt? Whom shall we invite to hate us most?

Do we really believe that bombing and killing one denomination in one geographic area, will endear us that denomination in a different geographic area — or to a different denomination? Or, is bombing and shooting to be our method of proselytization?

Might it not be better to step back and say to all Islamic nations:

“If, as a nation, you come to America in peace, America will welcome you in pease, as we welcome all amicable nations. If you are a friend to America, we will support you. But, if you attack America, America will defend itself.

Where Islam is at war with itself, we will not intervene. Such war is Islam’s to pacify. America will provide food, but not guns. America will provide medicines, but not soldiers. America will not try to convert you nor to change your peaceful ways.

We respect your freedom to choose your path.”

If not this, what else exactly do we want? What exactly would victory look like?

We no longer need Mideast oil, so that has ceased to be the tacit excuse. We cannot remake the world in our image. So what do we want?

The endless war is composed of lies, all lies, nothing but lies. And upon these lies our children are sent to die.

===================================================================================

If you don’t already understand the differences between Monetary Sovereignty and monetary non-sovereignty, please click the above link before continuing.

Last year, we published “Why Detroit and Jonathan Tobin both are bankrupt.” A few key sentences from that post are:

Detroit et al are not sovereign over the dollar. Greece is not sovereign over the euro. In essence, the dollar and the euro are “alien” currencies, used courtesy of the Monetarily Sovereign U.S. government and the Monetarily Sovereign European Union.

It is an absolute rule of economics that a monetarily non-sovereign entity cannot survive long-term without money coming in from outside its borders. You and I are monetarily non-sovereign. To survive long term, we must have income. We could not survive by paying taxes to ourselves.

Similarly, no city, county or state in America can survive long term by taxing itself. Nor can Greece.

What happens when a monetarily non-sovereign entity has insufficient money coming in from outside? It must borrow. And if the situation persists, it must borrow again. And again. And again. And one day, when it no longer can borrow, it goes bankrupt or defaults on its loans.

This is true even if the entity is bare-bones frugal. Even if you were to live in a tent and eat garbage, you, being monetarily non-sovereign, eventually would run out of money, unless you had an income.

In this regard, the Chicago Tribune published an interesting 9/8/14 article by Reihan Salam, titled: “How the suburbs trap the poor.”

The suburbs have long been a welcome refuge for families looking for a safe, affordable place to live.

But for many Americans, the suburbs have become a trap. Towns too small or too starved of sales tax revenue to sustain their local governments stay afloat by having local law enforcement go trawling for trumped-up traffic violations, the fines for which can be cripplingly expensive, and which only grow more onerous as low-income residents fail to pay them.

Before we can understand what makes some suburbs so miserable, we first have to understand what makes others succeed. The most successful suburban neighborhoods fall into two categories. First, there are the dense and walkable ones that, like the most successful urban neighborhoods, have town centers that give local residents easy access to retail and employment opportunities.

These neighborhoods generally include a mix of single-family homes and apartment buildings, which allows for different kinds of families and adults at different stages of life to share in the same local amenities.

The problem with these urban suburbs is that there are so few of them, and this scarcity fuels the same kind of gentrification that is driving poor people out of successful cities.

The other model for success can be found in sprawling suburban neighborhoods dominated by households with either the time or the resources to maintain single-family homes and to engage in civic life.

As a general rule, the neighborhoods in this latter category don’t allow for apartment buildings or town homes on small lots. They implement stringent local land-use regulations that keep them exclusive, and they attract families that tenaciously defend the character of their neighborhoods.

Last year, Slate contributor Matt Feeney argued that Detroit, his hometown, had declined so dramatically because it was “a virtual monoculture, residentially speaking a city of detached, owner-occupied, single-family homes.

Since the initial rise of the suburbs, families have changed. The most dramatic change has been the steep increase in one-person households, from 7.8 percent of all households in 1940 to 26.7 percent as of 2010.

To summarize Mr. Salan’s thesis, Detroit and indeed many cities and especially suburbs, struggle because they are loaded with single-family, owner-occupied homes. These homes take up land and city services. Their owners can’t afford the upkeep, the taxes and the risk of property depreciation. In the event poorer people move into the neighborhood, the resident home-owners, fearing home depreciation, rush out, only to be replaced by additional poor people.

As poor owners replace wealthier owners, property prices fall; then tax collections fall; then suburban services fall in a downward helix to poverty. And all this could be prevented if the suburb or city had more of multi-story, affordable rentals, requiring less service per person and less risk of property devaluation to chase people away.

The problem, according to Mr. Salam, is Detroit’s mono-culture of single family homes.

There may be some logic to this, but it ignores the fundamental problem: A monetarily non-sovereign entity cannot survive long term without money coming in from outside its borders.

Visualize Village “A.” It is entirely self-contained, being surrounded by a high wall. Nothing comes in; nothing goes out. Every dollar spent remains in the village, so total dollars do not change. If the total population remains static, then the average dollars per person remains static.

Only if the Gap between the rich and the rest shrinks or grows, will the economy of Village “A” become unstable. Otherwise, nothing changes.

Now visualize Village “B.” It has the same wall as Village “A,” but this wall has a door, which allows for imports but not exports. So goods and services flow in, while dollars flow out. Eventually, Village “B” runs out of dollars and goes bankrupt.

Clearly, it makes no difference whether or not Village “B” contains single-family housing, high-rise apartments or pup tents all in a row. And, no matter how much taxing or benefit cutting the village does, a monetarily non-sovereign village that has a negative balance of payments, will run out of money. To survive long-term, a monetarily non-sovereign entity must have more money coming in across its borders than going out.

From where can the village acquire enough dollars to balance or exceed its outflow? One source would be neighboring villages. For instance, some people who receive a paycheck in Chicago, live in the suburbs, so among these people there is a net flow of dollars from Chicago to its suburbs.

That helps the monetarily non-sovereign suburbs, but punishes the monetarily non-sovereign Chicago. The dollar-shortage has not been solved; it merely has been moved from one village to another.

In any closed system, where the total supply of dollars neither grows nor shrinks, the overall net balance of payments = $0. If the system is comprised of states, counties, cities, businesses and people (all of whom are monetarily non-sovereign), on average half will gain dollars and half will lose dollars, and the losers will be threatened with bankruptcy.

Chicago might be able to obtain dollars from Cook County, which in turn might be able to obtain dollars from Illinois, but what then?

A tax increase temporarily may help Illinois, but it would impoverish Illinois tax payers, who in turn, will pay less taxes, eventually impoverishing the Illinois government. For long term survival, additional net dollars are needed.

From where will these additional dollars come? Fortunately, our federal government is Monetarily Sovereign. It alone has the unlimited ability to create its sovereign currency.

When the states, counties, cities, businesses and people run short of dollars, the federal government has the unlimited ability to replenish the shortfall via deficit spending.

Monetarily Sovereign government deficit spending is the only long-term method by which dollars are created. Were it not for federal deficit spending, the supply of dollars would remain static. Net importing and population growth would reduce the number of dollars per person.

Yes, banks create dollars by lending. In fact, banks create most of the dollars. But these all are temporary dollars. When the loans are repaid, those bank dollars disappear. The only permanent dollars result from federal deficit spending.

Bottom line: A Monetarily non-sovereign government may look for short term solutions to its dollar shortage. It can borrow. It can do as Mr. Salam suggests and build more high rise rental apartments along with fewer stand-alone, single-family homes. It can raise taxes and cut spending. It can try to increase exports and reduce imports.

But all this accomplishes is to move the same dollars from one monetarily non-sovereign entity to another, which over time results in, on average, half being short of dollars.

If the states are to help support their counties, and the counties are to help support their cities, and the cities are to help support their suburbs — all of which is necessary to prevent the impoverishment of these governments and their residents — the U.S. federal government must deficit spend. It is basic arithmetic.

This not true only for the U.S. The same concept is true for the euro nations and indeed for every nation. The euro nations, for instance, have tried to deny that 1 – 1 = 0, by instituting a wide variety of “Band Aid” solutions to their monetary non-sovereignty. Most of the solutions involve loans, the repayment of which is impossible, together with higher taxes and lower social benefits, this impoverishing the citizenry.

The one entity capable of permanently increasing each nation’s euro supply, is the Monetarily Sovereign European Union. But it refuses, perhaps for fear the populace will learn that all these years of back-breaking austerity were unnecessary.

Similarly, the U.S. state & local U.S. governments force austerity by repeatedly raising taxes and cutting services, while the federal government does the same.

The only solution to a money shortage is to create money. There are no clever “work-arounds.” Monetarily Sovereign governments must create the money to feed their monetarily non-sovereign citizens.

Governments excuse austerity with the bogeyman of hyperinflation. It is the BIG LIE.

The trapped people, emaciated and dying of starvation, are refused food for fear of morbid obesity.

Cruelly, the governments will not send food into the box.

I am a Jew.

Do you hate me?

I am a Muslim. Do you hate me?

I am gay, black, brown, an immigrant, a pregnant teenager, yellow, red and a Catholic priest. Do you hate me?

Obama immigration delay means 60,000 to be deported by November Do you hate them? Do you even care?

Or have you seen this the face of hatred?

In the Irish city of Limerick, in 1904, the priest John Creagh promoted a boycott of the Jews.

“It is madness”, the Christian leader declared, “for a people to allow an evil to grow in their midst that will cause them ruin”. Orders were given to the Jews’ customers not to buy their goods and to repay their loans. If the Jews walked in the streets they were beaten, confronting crowds shouting “Death to the Jews!” and “Hunt them out”.

A century later, a committee in Ireland’s Oireachtas, the country’s legislature, called for a national ban on imported products from “Israeli settlements considered internationally as illegal”.

The Irish government will also try to take the lead in the European Union in establishing such a ban and will champion an EU-wide ban during Ireland’s EU presidency next year.

Or is this the face of hatred?

[A] Jew [is] of that most contemptible of religions, the most vile of faiths…They, both the ancient and modern [Jews], are altogether the worst liars…They are the filthiest and vilest of peoples, their unbelief horrid, their ignorance abominable.

The vilest infidel ape [i.e., Jews; per Koran 5:60, 2:65, 7:166]…Do not consider that killing them [Jews] is treachery.

Or this?

Iraq: ISIS terrorists kidnap dozens in north Iraq

Amnesty has accused ISIS of “systematic ethnic cleansing,” including mass killings, of ethnic and religious minorities in Iraq.

We have become so acceptance of hatred, we even have made hatred into a game:

Ethnic Cleansing (video game)

In the game, the protagonist (the player can choose either a neo-Nazi or a Klansman) runs through a ghetto killing African-Americans and Latinos, before descending into a subway system to kill Jews. Finally he reaches the “Yiddish Control Center”, where a fictionalized version of Ariel Sharon, then Prime Minister of Israel, is directing plans for world domination. The player must kill him to win the game.

Here we have seen the institutionalized, laughable, even enjoyable hatred. Have you played the game?

One cannot reason with hatred. There are no facts to dissuade hatred. Hatred always invents excuses for its existence. Hatred never builds. Hatred always destroys.

Islam is divided by hatred as is Christianity. Every nation that has encouraged or even allowed hatred, has experienced its corrosive effect. The Inquisition helped destroy Spain. The Holocaust, fostered by all of Europe, helped destroy Europe.

As hatred once again fills Europe, the destruction grows. No people filled with hatred ever can confine that hatred. It is a wild, untamable virus. It always spreads its poison tentacles, engulfing more and more of those who encouraged it and even those who stood by silently.

Hatred knows no boundaries. You cannot hide. Hatred will seek you out.

Now today, we see it in America, a metastasizing tumor, providing haters with excuses for murder by police and by civilians, excuses fo the deportation of unfortunate innocents, excuses to deny the poor health care and even water, excuses to close our eyes to bigotry and injustice.

The Detroit water shutoffs, the Ferguson police shooting, Texas Sheriff Joe Arpaio — all give lie to any claims that hate crimes “really have not increased all that much.” For none of these technically are classed as “hate crimes.”

They are the hidden rot, that slowly undermines, until even the mightiest tree falls. You are not safe from hatred. It turns neighbor against neighbor — against you. You cannot escape hatred. You cannot stand by.

If you do not defeat hatred it will defeat you. There are no neutrals in this war.

The widening Gap between the rich/powerful and the rest is caused by more than mere ignorance of economics and Monetary Sovereignty, more even than by the greed of the rich and the politicians and media the rich buy. The Gap is encouraged and fostered by hatred — hatred of those who need help, by those who could provide it.

The rich teach us to despise the poor as deserving of poverty, and despise minorities as deserving of anguish.

And so we have the Tea Party preaching an end to Social benefits for impoverished “takers,” and the right wing who demand that the government teach Christ to non-Christians, and the xenophobes demanding that child immigrants be sent back to misery and murder, and the pious who demand the death of the mother to produce the unborn, and the law enforcers who kill the innocent to protect you.

The list goes on and the Gap grows, urged by hatred.

Thus does our beautiful world die, not with a bang nor even a whimper, but with the slow internal rot of hatred.

Have you contributed, lately? Have you turned away?
