George Orwell’s 1984 has long been cherished by lovers of dystopian novels for decades and deservedly so. Orwell published the book in 1949 in which he made some startlingly accurate predictions about how a more technologically advanced totalitarian government might operate. I focus on one here – control of the press.
“He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.”
― George Orwell, 1984
The government in 1984 is personified and referred to as “Big Brother,” and it obtains some level of control using the Ministry of Truth. The Ministry of Truth has a monopoly on newspapers and telescreen broadcasts. It operates as a propaganda machine to “edit” stories from the past, to fit whatever agenda Big Brother is then trying to push. Evidence of the actual past is thrown down a “memory hole,” where it gets incinerated.
The power of the controlled press is immense, and it helps to push the constant war agenda, something used to keep an ill conceived war industry running, to cut civilians’ rations, and to rally them around a nationalist identity. Or an event with serious implications that people ought to know about may go unnoticed.
Bol could even, say, engage in a proxy war against enemies in the Middle East Boby way of a terrorist organization. Fund the terror.”
If you only consume network news, you probably think the U.S. and Israel opposes ISIS / ISIL in every way… that the IDF would fight against ISIS… that they have fundamentally differing ideologies. The truth of the matter is that rhe United States has been funding ISIS and that Israel has been fighting alongside ISIS, including the IDF’s Mossad.
In a new report from the UN, it is revealed that the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) were maintaining regular contact with members of the so-called Islamic State since May of 2013. Initial reports from the IDF stated that this was only for medical care for civilians, but that story fell apart when the UN observers identified direct contact between IDF forces and ISIS soldiers, including giving medical care to ISIS fighters. Observations even included the transfer of two crates from the IDF to ISIS forces, the contents of which have not been confirmed at this time. Further the UN report identified what the Syrians label a crossing point of forces between Israel and ISIS, a point of concern brought before the UN Security Council. This report from the UN strengthens the claims by the Syrian regime that Israel is heavily involved in operations within the nation.
This is part of a continuing pattern of Israeli support for the Islamic State. It was only two months ago that Israel attacked Syrian forces in opposition to ISIS forces. Israeli attacks even killed an Iranian military adviser for the Syrian military just two weeks ago. The U.S.’s financing of ISIS, part of the effort against Syrian president Assad, is well documented, as well. That the efforts to undermine the Assad regime were in turn strengthening the same terrorist group which recently set a Jordanian pilot on fire to set an example is conveniently ignored by the higher up military command.
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iraqi security and popular forces have caught an Israeli colonel from Golani Brigade along with a number of ISIL terrorists, a commander disclosed on Thursday.
“The security and popular forces have held captive an Israeli colonel,” a commander of Iraq’s popular mobilization forces said on Thursday.
“The Zionist officer is ranked colonel and had participated in the Takfiri ISIL group’s terrorist operations,” he added.
Noting that he was arrested along with a number of ISIL terrorists, the commander said, “The Israeli colonel’s name is Yusi Oulen Shahak and is ranked colonel in Golani Brigade of the Zionist regime’s army with the security and military code of Re34356578765az231434.”
“Power shapes of your own choosing.” George Orwell, 1984
Where were the major media networks on a story as HUGE as this?! Silent… See for yourself…
And what about CNN?
I guess they’re still reeling over the fact that their correspondents cannot tell the difference between butt plug and dildo silhouettes and Arabic Script. They’re trying to memory hole the whole event.
