Royal Family is showing its true colours; Harry’s forefathers would have
been impressed by his costume choice, but while the world had palpitations
over the Party Prince, dressed to kill in a Nazi uniform, there was not a
murmur about Muslims being draped in the Israeli flag at Camp X-Ray. This
form of humiliation equates to forcing an African to dress as the KKK or
making a Jew wear the swastika. You would feel tainted! But torture is
theatre in the New World Order.
Grinning Charles Graner was only following orders, authorized by
President Bush, when he posed for sordid
and the soldier’s lawyer said, “Activities
such as making human pyramids with naked hooded prisoners were not illegal.”
If such grisly, debasing treatment of detainees is legitimate practice,
according to the standards of the USA, the words “never again” will mean
nothing as we commemorate the Holocaust and JTF Guantanamo is honour bound
to defend hypocrisy.
Harry’s furore has
highlighted the need for a new generation to be sensitized to the Holocaust
and the BBC is screening a timely documentary to remind us, lest we forget
(as if) how abhorrent man’s
inhumanity to man is,
but Hitler et al
and Britain’s WWII glory is the main subject in the school curriculum,
(apart from sorcery, sex and drugs.) I used to wring my hands and weep over
grainy black & white images of Auschwitz, now I tear my hair out at full-colour
pictures of Abu Ghraib!
slaughter of human beings must shock, whosoever the victims or perpetrators
may be, but I can think of several nations where mass-murderers still make
policy and they are our allies! Our Queen is the Figurehead of the
Commonwealth where ethnic cleansing is routine.
Not wishing to denigrate the
suffering of others, Africa is an ongoing holocaust and the tally has long
since passed six million. Nonetheless, Harry and William must make a
pilgrimage to Auschwitz.
Diana’s boys should view
Kissinger’s ‘skull & bones’ trophies at Rwanda’s Museum of Horrors, it’s
more contemporary. The UN could give them all the gory details, they were
there; and rather than
reliving the Nazi death chambers, the media could show us how concentration
camps operate, in real time, by taking the cameras inside the interrogation
cells of Git-Bay or the secretive detention facility at Diego Garcia. Why
not? If they have nothing to hide, they have nothing to fear.
