Footnote to "Cowboys and Iranians"


Footnote to "Cowboys and Iranians"
by Mohammad Alireza

I was going to add this entry as a comment to "Cowboys and Iranian", which I wrote way back in 2008, but JJ had closed the comments down due to the usual personal attack nonsense.

Link to "Cowboys and Iranians":


The basic point I was making in "Cowboys and Iranians" it seems was on target, or at least confirmed by Noam Chomsky during this long interview:


Question: But if we go back to some of the things we were discussing earlier, many people would say that where these lobbies are most effective is not specific deals, but in shaping public opinion.

Chomsky: Yes, but they’re pushing on an open door, because there are independent reasons why Americans tend towards Israel. Remember, this is a long-standing relationship that goes back long before Zionism. There’s an instinctive identification that’s unique. There’s the American Indian comparison, you know, the barbaric redskins trying to prevent progress and development and attacking innocent whites: that’s Israel-Palestine. In fact, it’s right there in the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson, the most libertarian of the founding fathers. One of the charges in the Declaration against King George III is that he unleashed the merciless Indian savages against us, whose known way of warfare is torture and killing and so on. That could come straight out of Zionist propaganda. This is a very deep strain in American culture and history. After all, the country was founded by religious extremists who were waving the Holy Book and describing themselves as children of Israel returning to the Promised Land. So Zionism found its natural environment here.

So would you situate the Lobby primarily within the broader cultural background, where Americans look at Israel and recognize themselves?

For many Americans, it’s just instinctive that the Jews in Israel are reliving our history. They recognize themselves, and furthermore they recognize the crusaders who succeeded in throwing out the pagans. There’s the analogy to the American conquest of the national territory, the Zionists use this analogy as well, but positively. We are bringing civilization to the barbarians, which is after all the whole core of Western imperialist ideology. It’s very deeply rooted.

The above image I found at the link below which seems to have very interesting material on Native American history....which is very unlike Hollywood's version. Here is the link:

به‌‌ به‌‌، خداوند سایه شما را از سر جمهوری اسلامی کم نکند


چه زیبا نوشتید فرزند راستین اسلام، جناب محمد علیرضا.  وقتی‌ که چندین سال پیش جناب محسنی اژه‌ای درباره آوردن شما از جنوب لبنان و استخدام شما با بنده مشاوره کردند، بنده کمی‌ شک داشتم که شما بتوانید وظائف کاری خود را به انجام برسانید، آنهم بیشتر به دلیل نا آشنا بودن شما به زبان فارسی، و اسمتان که عربی‌ است.  ولی‌ جناب اژه‌ای من را خاطر نشان کرد که شما کار خود را به نحو احسن انجام خواهید داد.  و من الان می‌دانم که برادر اژه‌ای بصیرت زیادی داشته اند.  جدیداً هم جناب مصلحی استخدام شما را برای پنج سال آینده تمدید کردند به اذن الله.

شما واقعا که فرزند راستین انقلاب هستید.  طوری که شما کلک میزنید و به مردم وانمود میکنید که در ایران زندگی‌ میکنید ولی‌ مخالف نظام مقدّس هستید، آنطور که بنده را با گاندی مقایسه میکنید (البته افراط نشود که این گاندی ملعون کافر بود) و آنطور که درباره آمریکا بدی مینوسید، واقعا که فوق العاده است.  شما نور العین جمهوری اسلامی هستید.  فقط ملاحظه بفرمایید که اسم ایرانی‌ برای خودتان انتخاب کنید.  ما محمد علیرضا در بلاد فارس نداریم.  

السلام علیکم و رحمت الله و برکاته.

chumpskies claptrap isn't about 'cowboys"

by bushtheliberator on

the cowboys don't suffer with Jooz-fixation like chumpkie ( and as a group are not that fond of Jews)

" Cowboys & Indians " is a nationalist response to " Death to America".Cumpskie. and many others can explain that the hoola hoop craze was caused by American racism,imperialism, and of course Jooz.
