Spiritual principles now being used to justify slaughter of innocents in Gaza, former Congressman Dennis Kucinich tells Mike Adams
By Belle Carter // Dec 01, 2023

For former Cleveland Mayor and Congressman Dennis Kucinich, people are choosing to use their spiritual ideologies to support the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas, instead of promoting peace.

"We're in a moment where what [George] Orwell wrote about years ago, in terms of the inversion of meaning. We're seeing an action that up is down, wrong is right and worse is the better reason," he told Mike Adams in a recent episode of the Health Ranger Report, adding that this twisted theory is now in full display in the ongoing war in the Middle East to justify the slaughter of innocent. For him, there is one supreme teaching: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." He said that this principle cuts across any religion. "It's in the Talmud, Quran and the Bible. We need to call upon spiritual guidance at a time when our limited minds can't figure out how to work things out diplomatically," he remarked. However, instead of acquiring a clear perspective in this time of crisis, what's happening is spiritual principles are now being used to justify slaughter. "And that is twisted," he lamented.

He further urged that if America is to take sides between Israelis and Palestinians, take this out of peace. "If we cannot take a stand to stop the slaughter of women and children and innocent people, then who are we? Where are our values? And can there be anything more specific about being a conservative than conserving the peace?" he emphasized because according to him, Israel is on the offense and this is contrary to the narrative that it is just defending its people. Worse, the United States is immensely involved in standing up for these policies that are so destructive.

Adams concurred pointing out the need to coexist as human beings of different ethnicities, religions, colors and genders now that Israel has been behaving otherwise. "What would our world look like if every nation reacted to its neighbors in the way that Israel is doing right now? That would be a world of blood and suffering. None of us want that outcome," he said. Kucinich agreed saying that both of them and some others are challenging the sharply interiorized logic of not just the conflict, but of the rationale behind the conflict, which is certainly political, territorial and covers resources and has a biblical subtext. According to him, these merge into the recitation of self-justification. He cited Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu engaging in the daily massacre of tens of thousands of people and decimating their homes.

His analysis included that what is happening now is for the simultaneous survival of the State of Israel and the Palestinian people. "But we have to recognize that there are elements who don't believe in either of those things. That's where it requires the dexterity of, not just diplomacy, but also having an open-hearted conversation on stopping with the killing because it's circular, it always comes back," he said. And so, he raised his concern that since America is not cautioning Israel to stop, it is on a path that will inevitably entrain the United States into conflict in South Lebanon, because that's part of the Greater Israel plan. He revealed Netanyahu is for the Greater Israel, which is not just West Bank and Gaza. "And to create this dream, the danger is that they sparked a major war with Hezbollah in Lebanon, and then the potential of Iran getting involved, and then China and then Russia," he warned.

Israel and the West do not care about their people, just their profits

Elsewhere in the show, Adams touched on the important topic of the "military-industrial complex."

"It's not about just stopping this act of violence or stopping the leaning on coercion and violence as a form of diplomacy… In Congress, you fought against what I would call the 'military-industrial complex.' It has been very profitable for certain people and corporations to have forever wars," he said and added how this has installed the United States into a "doom loop of violence and war and profit."

When asked how would the nation ever exit the doom loop, the former representative elaborated on the roles of the country's policies. "We're told that eternal vigilance is the price of liberty. But we have to be vigilant about not just what's outside the perimeters of America but also what's going on inside," he said. "But our international policy is continually hijacked for purposes of moving hundreds of billions of dollars in arms to decimate countries and to create an agenda that has nothing to do with the needs of the American people at all."  According to him, our government is willing to spend trillions of dollars to destroy lives in other countries and ignore the lives of people at home. It's time to redirect America's resources and our ethics about what we stand for as a country, he said.

The Brighteon.com founder linked this line of thought to how hundreds of thousands of Ukrainian men have been dying in the Ukraine-Russia conflict while wealthy American corporations that have ties to Washington are getting wealthy because of their weapons production. "There seems to be no value for the lives of the Ukrainian men. And that might apply to even Israeli soldiers today. The U.S. corporations may not value those soldiers as long as they're making the profits," he said.
