North Korea's Satellite and Israel

Two armed pawns in the international chess game, each one of them claiming to be the only legal entity while neither one is...

On December 12, 2012, North Korea successfully launched an Unha-3 rocket containing the Shining Star 3 observation satellite from the Sohae Satellite Launching Station in Tongchang-ri on North Korea's western coast, near China. Even South Korea admitted that the three stages of the device operated properly. North Korea claims that the satellite successfully reached orbit. "Initial indications are that the missile deployed an object that appeared to achieve orbit," North American Aerospace Defense Command said, and added, "At no time was the missile or the resultant debris a threat to North America." The rocket was fired southwards; its first stage fell into the Yellow Sea and the second stage into the Philippine Sea. In 2011, Robert M. Gates, then President Obama's defense secretary, claimed that North Korea was within five years of being able to strike the continental United States with an intercontinental ballistic missile. North Korea is ahead of this schedule; anybody capable of putting something on an exact orbit around earth can hit whatever is below.

Shining Star 3, December 12, 2012

Being a secretive state, little is known about North Korean technologies, except that they have been developed from earlier Soviet devices, specifically the Scud missile and the R-27 Zyb submarine-launched ballistic missile developed in the 1960s. Its solid fuel third stage is related to the Iranian Safir rocket; probably this stage caused the problems in the 2006, 2009, and April 2012 launching attempts. Solid fuel tends to burn unevenly due to crack lines formed during launching; unless solved, this can cause deviations in the path of the rocket. Where did the technology of this stage originate? As in the event of an American satellite hit by Iran, all signs point at a major friend of both countries: China. What's the rush? Who is being threatened by this event that the New York Times claims took American officials by surprise?

Alternate History

No less surprising was the White House reaction. Tommy Vietor, the National Security Council spokesman, claimed afterwards that the event is “a highly provocative act that threatens regional security, directly violates United Nations Security Council Resolutions 1718 and 1874, contravenes North Korea’s international obligations, and undermines the global nonproliferation regime.” The resolutions refer to North Korea's nuclear program while in this event they launched a spying satellite. Isn't Mr. Vietor worried that I might call him "a demagogue of the worst type?"

Imagine that we are back in the early days of the Cold War, but with one tiny difference. Let's say Mexico had accepted Trotsky's preaching and become a Communist country. Then, one sunny day, this hypothetical Mexico invites a Soviet army to occupy its northern frontier and protect Mexico from American imperialist aggression. Would the USA have had the right to defend itself? If you answer positively to this, then you cannot deny North Korea's right.

Korea's DMZ

Korea's DMZ

Socratic Ironies

Seldom is reality so tightly packed with ironies. In the past, I visited what used to be Vietnam's Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). Mighty Rockpile had become a darkish green hill among the electric green of the surrounding rice paddies. The Khe San airstrip could barely be seen among a rapidly growing forest. In contrast, Korea's DMZ is despite its name, the most heavily militarized border in the world. Serving as a buffer zone between North and South Korea, it runs along the 38th parallel north for 250 kilometres (160 miles) and is approximately 4 km (2.5 mi) wide. Much of the tension between the countries is concentrated here. Sporadic violent events there reach international headlines regularly.

Both sides claim to be democratic. One mimics a Walsingham-British surveillance-state, while the other is modeled after Jewish-Marxist Totalitarianism. Both regimes were imposed on the denizens by the parties winning WWII, and thus can be considered equally unrepresentative of the Korean people's will. These days, South Korea survives due to American support while the North is protected by the ample wings of China. Two armed pawns in the international chess game, each one of them claiming to be the only legal entity while neither one is. Moreover, pawns being pawns, they obey orders.

The Chinese reaction to the launching was just a notch less ambiguous than usual. Hong Lei, China's Foreign Ministry Spokesman, said at a regular briefing in Beijing, "North Korea, as a member of the United Nations, has the obligation to abide by relevant resolutions of the United Nations Security Council." He refused to answer whether North Korea had lived up to that obligation or whether China had received advance notice that the launch would happen Wednesday, though he "regretted" the event (the launching or the press conference? we will never know...). Let me venture an educated guess, North Korea wouldn't have launched the satellite without the approval of its main sponsor. Considering the source of its technology, such an option is even more questionable. North Korea is a useful pawn in the Chinese chess game.

Its role is similar to the one played by Israel in the American chess game. Israel is useful to the USA in the testing of weapons; once a system is defined as "tested in the battlefield," its price increases. Israel also indirectly secures America's access to the valuable oil fields in the Middle East. Moreover, it allows the USA to perform indirect attacks on its enemies. One of the triggers of the current violence in Syria, was the unprovoked assassination of Syrian civilians by the IDF. Of course, these interests were shared by both sides.

Secret War

China is rising rapidly, achieving strategic concerns parallel to the American ones. Some time ago, an American pawn threatened one of China's favorite soldiers. In the Beginning of 2012, South Korea announced it was interested in buying Israel's Iron Dome antimissile system. Despite its name, it is an offensive system. It is a mobile system, similar in size to most weapons used by artillery corps. This means that it can be carried around by the artillery just behind the frontline, and neutralize missiles and artillery shells fired by the other side. Thus, strictly speaking, this is not a defensive weapon, but a frontline support-weapon, as all artillery is. The acquisition of Iron Dome by South Korea has offensive implications towards North Korea.

A few months later, the answer arrived. Anybody capable of putting something on an exact orbit around earth can hit whatever is below. Can you understand this, Mr. Netanyahu?

Stalin's Jews

We mustn't forget that some of greatest murderers of modern times were Jewish

Here's a particularly forlorn historical date: Almost 90 years ago, between the 19th and 20th of December 1917, in the midst of the Bolshevik revolution and civil war, Lenin signed a decree calling for the establishment of The All-Russian Extraordinary Commission for Combating Counter-Revolution and Sabotage, also known as Cheka.

Within a short period of time, Cheka became the largest and cruelest state security organization. Its organizational structure was changed every few years, as were its names: From Cheka to GPU, later to NKVD, and later to KGB.

We cannot know with certainty the number of deaths Cheka was responsible for in its various manifestations, but the number is surely at least 20 million, including victims of the forced collectivization, the hunger, large purges, expulsions, banishments, executions, and mass death at Gulags.

Whole population strata were eliminated: Independent farmers, ethnic minorities, members of the bourgeoisie, senior officers, intellectuals, artists, labor movement activists, "opposition members" who were defined completely randomly, and countless members of the Communist party itself.

In his new, highly praised book "The War of the World, "Historian Niall Ferguson writes that no revolution in the history of mankind devoured its children with the same unrestrained appetite as did the Soviet revolution. In his book on the Stalinist purges, Tel Aviv University's Dr. Igal Halfin writes that Stalinist violence was unique in that it was directed internally.

Lenin, Stalin, and their successors could not have carried out their deeds without wide-scale cooperation of disciplined "terror officials," cruel interrogators, snitches, executioners, guards, judges, perverts, and many bleeding hearts who were members of the progressive Western Left and were deceived by the Soviet regime of horror and even provided it with a kosher certificate.

All these things are well-known to some extent or another, even though the former Soviet Union's archives have not yet been fully opened to the public. But who knows about this? Within Russia itself, very few people have been brought to justice for their crimes in the NKVD's and KGB's service. The Russian public discourse today completely ignores the question of "How could it have happened to us?" As opposed to Eastern European nations, the Russians did not settle the score with their Stalinist past.

And us, the Jews? An Israeli student finishes high school without ever hearing the name "Genrikh Yagoda," the greatest Jewish murderer of the 20th Century, the GPU's deputy commander and the founder and commander of the NKVD. Yagoda diligently implemented Stalin's collectivization orders and is responsible for the deaths of at least 10 million people. His Jewish deputies established and managed the Gulag system. After Stalin no longer viewed him favorably, Yagoda was demoted and executed, and was replaced as chief hangman in 1936 by Yezhov, the "bloodthirsty dwarf."

Yezhov was not Jewish but was blessed with an active Jewish wife. In his Book "Stalin: Court of the Red Star", Jewish historian Sebag Montefiore writes that during the darkest period of terror, when the Communist killing machine worked in full force, Stalin was surrounded by beautiful, young Jewish women.

Stalin's close associates and loyalists included member of the Central Committee and Politburo Lazar Kaganovich. Montefiore characterizes him as the "first Stalinist" and adds that those starving to death in Ukraine, an unparalleled tragedy in the history of human kind aside from the Nazi horrors and Mao's terror in China, did not move Kaganovich.

Many Jews sold their soul to the devil of the Communist revolution and have blood on their hands for eternity. We'll mention just one more: Leonid Reichman, head of the NKVD's special department and the organization's chief interrogator, who was a particularly cruel sadist.

In 1934, according to published statistics, 38.5 percent of those holding the most senior posts in the Soviet security apparatuses were of Jewish origin. They too, of course, were gradually eliminated in the next purges. In a fascinating lecture at a Tel Aviv University convention this week, Dr. Halfin described the waves of soviet terror as a "carnival of mass murder," "fantasy of purges", and "essianism of evil." Turns out that Jews too, when they become captivated by messianic ideology, can become great murderers, among the greatest known by modern history.

The Jews active in official communist terror apparatuses (In the Soviet Union and abroad) and who at times led them, did not do this, obviously, as Jews, but rather, as Stalinists, communists, and "Soviet people." Therefore, we find it easy to ignore their origin and "play dumb": What do we have to do with them? But let's not forget them. My own view is different. I find it unacceptable that a person will be considered a member of the Jewish people when he does great things, but not considered part of our people when he does amazingly despicable things.

Even if we deny it, we cannot escape the Jewishness of "our hangmen," who served the Red Terror with loyalty and dedication from its establishment. After all, others will always remind us of their origin.
