When the International Court of Justice (ICJ) announced that it found it “plausible” that Israel is violating the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, many immediately drew parallels to the Holocaust, suggesting that Israel’s actions were akin to the treatment of Jews under Nazi Germany.

However, this interpretation is not accurate. The common understanding of “genocide” as the “systematic extermination” of a group of people does not align with the definition in the UN’s Convention, nor is it the definition under scrutiny by the ICJ.

In UN law, “genocide” encompasses a broad range of actions, including killing any number of people in a defined group, even a single person, or causing serious mental harm to a member of the group. This expansive definition implies that nations involved in any conflict, anywhere, at any time could potentially face allegations of “genocide.”

Professor Salim Mansur from Western University joins us to explore the implications of the ICJ’s provisional decision and its potential impact on the very existence of the state of Israel.

Dec 282023

The Oct 7th, 2023 atrocities committed on Israeli civilians by Gaza’s Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) prompted widespread expression of sympathy towards the people of Israel. However, as Israel responded to this act of terrorism to bring Hamas and its supporters to justice, the narrative quickly shifted to a surge of anti-Semitism.

In a candid conversation, Jewish-Canadian businessman Irving Weisdorf and Robert Vaughan delve into the origins of anti-Semitism, the historical context leading to the establishment of the state of Israel, and the complex dynamics of the insatiable animosity held by many Arab Palestinians towards their Jewish neighbours.

837 – Prelude to a massacre—The assassination of Yitzhak Rabin | Salim Mansur

 Comments Off on 837 – Prelude to a massacre—The assassination of Yitzhak Rabin | Salim Mansur
Nov 302023


L’chaim! A traditional Jewish toast celebrating life has taken a somber note in the Middle East, with recent events like the Hamas Massacre on October 7th and Israel’s retaliatory bombing of Gaza. The echoes of conflict reverberate through a history that traces back to the establishment of Israel by the United Nations in 1948, marking 75 years of persistent bloodshed in the region.

Despite the grim reality, a glimmer of optimism urges us to seek resolution in understanding the historical roots of this enduring rivalry. To unravel the complex narrative, Robert Vaughan engaged in a thought-provoking conversation with Professor Salim Mansur of Western University. Mansur’s recent Substack article, titled Rabin’s Murder is Prehistory of Gaza-Israel 10/7, delves into the profound changes Israel underwent from a secular state led by figures like Yitzhak Rabin to a religious state under leaders like Benjamin Netanyahu. Mansur suggests that this shift contributed to a trajectory of increased bloodshed and conflict, posing a challenge with no clear solution, possibly necessitating intervention by the United Nations.

Bin Laden

Following the Oct 7th Hamas Massacre in Israel, there has been an increase in awareness among many young people about Osama bin Laden’s “Letter to America,” a manifesto which was published 14 months after the 9/11 attacks on America.

Most of these young individuals were too young to recall the events of that day, which occurred 22 years ago. Indeed, many were not even born. In a sense, they might be forgiven for their ignorance of Bin Laden’s encyclical and the surrounding causes and effects of Al Qaeda’s actions. However, upon learning about why bin Laden killed almost 3,000 civilians, it should be clear to most with a conscience, that there is no justification for his heinous deeds.

In his lengthy missive, Bin Laden addresses two main questions: why he attacked and what he expects Americans to do in response. He claims that America attacked first, referring to the United States’ ongoing military engagements—the so-called Forever War. This constant interference in the affairs of other nations, unrelated to America’s existential concerns, serves primarily to sustain the Military Industrial Complex. For those shocked by the revelations on platforms like TikTok, this should serve as a wake-up call.

Bin Laden’s answer to the second question is straightforward: submit to Islam or face death. In this episode, we delve into the perplexing reactions of young Americans who are only now awakening to history and discovering the malevolence within the minds of Islamists willing to kill men, women, and children for their beliefs. As Bin Laden chillingly stated, “(We) desire death more than you desire life.

This chilling admission from a mass murderer in his Ex Post Facto Manifesto is no different from the manifestos left behind by others seeking redress for perceived wrongs through violence.

835 – Evil is not a mental illness

 Comments Off on 835 – Evil is not a mental illness
Nov 162023


Steven Crowder’s disclosure of the manifesto by Audrey Hale, the Covenant School shooter, has prompted some to label such heinous acts as the very definition of mental illness. However, categorizing evil solely as a mental disorder or abnormal dysfunction serves as an excuse rather than a proper understanding.

Evil deeds stem from a deliberate suspension of one’s consciousness and a rejection of critical thinking. Every individual has the potential for wrongdoing, influenced by their upbringing and the circumstances that shape their moral compass.

The Hamas Massacre on October 7 in Israel highlights that the conditions for evil exist in all people. It is only through a conscious decision to think and an act of will can we overcome the inclination to react violently to those we disagree with or those we’ve been conditioned to hate.

In the information and propaganda war that always accompanies a physical war, maintaining the narrative is key to winning both. Today’s confusion reigning around the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is completely understandable, and has a deliberate cause.

It also has had a desired effect, observed mainly in the international moral outrage against the “terrorist Hamas” from the Right, and in international moral support for the “resistance movement Hamas” from the Left.

Disturbingly, these emotionally charged public reactions could easily be interpreted as benefiting either side of the conflict, leaving open the question of a “false flag” operation on the part of Israel – particularly in light of its open border and lack of response during the invasion on October 7.

Worse, in the din of the “this is Israel’s 9/11” chorus, one cannot help but reflect on the fact that 9/11 itself is now understood to have been a false flag event, calculated to initiate a war in the mid-east.

While it may seem callous to downplay the unspeakable atrocities committed on the Gaza strip, to do otherwise is an invitation for more of the same. After all, the very purpose behind the “shock and terror” violence is to manipulate we the people.

For those in the conflict, what matters most is controlling the narrative, and the question of whether or not the reported acts of terrorism are real, imagined, manufactured or some combination thereof is secondary. What is necessary is to have the desired narrative believed and accepted by as many as possible in order to justify yet another battle in the greater global conflict increasingly being recognized as World War III.

In order to make sense of the latest conflict a good place to start is by recognizing World War III is not a war between nations; it is a war within nations. The Palestinian-Israeli conflict is but the latest example of a fate that awaits all nations who fail to do what’s Just Right when dealing with what’s Left in their midst.

832 – Perpetual wars—perpetual denials

“The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous.” – George Orwell

Over the past week, the world’s attention has been shifted from the “war” in Ukraine to a “war” in Israel. In a matter of days, everyone’s attention shifted from the previous week’s frenzy about Canada, Russia, Ukraine and the Nazis in our midst (including Jewish Nazis), to yet another event calculated to engender global sympathy for Israel and the Jewish people.

What is happening in Israel today is directly connected to events in Ukraine; any attempt to isolate one event from the other is to fail to understand that World War III is already well under way.

“Distant history will view all of these wars as nuances, concluding that Wars I, II, and III were really one catastrophic conflict with time out for rearmament and recruitment,” suggests Bill Whittle in his recent review of wars past and present.

War is not the greatest evil to fear. It is the condition of tyranny that results when collectivism rules instead of individualism, which has been the default condition under which most of humanity has lived since the beginning of recorded history.

It is a sad reality of history that the number of people killed in wars fought against foreign enemies is utterly dwarfed when compared to the number of people killed, murdered, and enslaved by their own rulers and governments. In this context, wars are mere flash points of a given tyranny running into resistance, more often from another tyranny than from any popular or democratic resistance. Hence, perpetual wars.

In the Western nations, tyrannies have been hastened with the consent of the people, a consent that does not necessarily mean agreement or support – just cooperation and compliance.

Too many have failed to resist or to speak out against a growing tyranny when the opportunity still exists. In the classic “I see nothing – I hear nothing – I know nothing” expression of denial popularized in the 1960s television series Hogan’s Heroes, most “say nothing” – even in the face of outrageous injustices and horrors.

Despite this, governments are doing all they can to silence the few voices that dare to speak out in an effort to prevent those voices from being heard by others. The antidote to tyranny, and therefore to war, is to ensure that a critical mass of people “see something, hear something, and know something” that is Just Right – and then act accordingly.
