The global theatre of the absurd

Hollywood star Jesse Eisenberg has applied for Polish citizenship. His Polish roots and the desire to repair Polish-Jewish relations are the crucial factors behind his decision. As the actor rightly points out, ”I feel that the history of Jews and Poles was intertwined and I think this is misrepresented by a lot of American Jews.”
So when Hamas supporters chant, ”Go back to Poland,” do just that. I can’t promise it’s going to be perfect but the levels of antisemitism in Poland are nowhere near what some propaganda is trying to sell you.
CIA Director is going to meet with Mossad chief in Europe to try to revive hostage talks. You’d think that with modern technology at the disposal of intelligence agencies, they can pinpoint every hostage’s location with ease. Apparently not. Maybe we’re overestimating intel agencies. We seem to think of the CIA as this all-powerful organization that was involved in mind control and brainwashing experiments. Maybe the truth scares us: people working for intel agencies aren’t superheroes or geniuses who can decipher a human psyche just by looking at someone’s photo. Sure, smart people abound in intel agencies (hence the name) but it doesn’t mean every employee of the CIA or Mossad is a genius. Most aren’t.
I’m concerned that major intelligence agencies such as the CIA have made a deal with the proverbial Devil (Vladimir Putin and his inner circle) and nations such as Poland are going to be sacrificed on the altar of business as usual with Russia. Propaganda? Nonsense? We”ll see.
In his article about espionage, CIA Director wrote that he had gone to Moscow in November 2021 to warn Putin and his cronies against invading Ukraine. And for that, we have only his word. Who knows what Mr. Burns and his Russian counterparts really talked about? For all we know, they were dividing the world into spheres of influence with smaller nations left at the mercy of Russia. We just don’t know. What we do know is that an absurd policy of not letting Ukraine strike back on Russian soil, while Russia can kill Ukrainians as it pleases points to some kind of a secret deal between American and Russian governments or intel agencies or both. Look, I want to be wrong but logic dictates otherwise. What’s going on with this absurd policy makes no sense – just because Russia has nuclear weapons doesn’t mean it can do whatever the hell it wants: assassinate, castrate, bomb, maim, abduct and much, much more. Ukrainians can be brutal too, yes. Good. The only language Russians truly understand is force. Both the willingness and the tools to show force if need be. Don’t take my word for it. Ask any Russian and, if there’s any honesty left in them, he or she will nod and say, ”Da.”
If you look at the Polish track record of being betrayed by the so-called allies (UK, France, indeed, the US), it’s no wonder skepticism is in order. If I were a decision-maker in Israel, I’d listen to what others have to say but, in the end, I’d make my own decision. I’d never fully trust William Burns or anyone else, for that matter.
It appears that Alexandr Dugin the maniac or a psychiatric patient posing as a philosopher if you prefer, is likely going to get his wish. Only empires are going to matter. Small nations are going to be mere puppets to be used and abused by the bigger players, international law be damned.
Diplomats expressing their condolences, their thoughts and prayers, when the Iranian President died, I mean, come on. I know there’s the whole diplomatic protocol but it doesn’t excuse these outbursts of fake cries and condolences.
A dark, dark world is upon us. I wish I could bury my head in the sand and sing it’s all good… but it ain’t. And Israel is prepared to face any adversary in this weird world.
It’s getting so absurd that, mark my words, you’re going to see Russian propagandists prancing around the White House and Dugin giving a speech at the UN Headquarters, sobbing as he mentions his angel-maiden daughter. Sounds crazy? Wait a while. You’ll see.
That’s when, dear reader, the ones who died in all sorts of battles can count themselves lucky for leaving a global mental asylum to – hopefully – some better place.
