Free Barghouti! Exonerate LaRouche!

“In practically all the major countries in the world that today are developing successfully—above all India, and China—there are partisans of LaRouche. They have used his thoughts and ideas for creating their economic miracles. It is the principles of Physical Economy championed by LaRouche that today underlie the Chinese economic miracle and are there in the foundations of India’s economic policy….” 

Dec. 26, 2023—The respected Russian physical economist Sergei Glazyev, presently the Minister in charge of Integration and Macroeconomics of the Eurasian Economic Commission, made the above observation in 2022, regarding the economic writings and ideas of Lyndon LaRouche. Statements from Indian and Chinese scholars, while perhaps not so strong as that of Glazyev, agree with his clear assessment. In the United States, however, with the exception of some farm associations, many individual legislators, and a handful of economists or bankers, Lyndon LaRouche’s advancements in the science of physical economy—the actual economy that the American Revolution, established in contrast to the imperial doctrine advocated by Adam Smith in his The Wealth of Nations—go unknown or unappreciated.

That fearful censoring of the economic ideas of LaRouche is about to boomerang, as the BRICS nations, and those aspiring to join that association, witness that the problem, for example, in NATO’s war against Russia in Ukraine, is that, despite a trillion-dollar war budget in the U.S., and expanding war budgets in both trans-Atlantic and “trilateral” nations (such as Japan), these nations lack the productive capacity, and the will, as well as the productive skills, to out-produce Russia and China. In ignoring the blueprint for survival and prosperity outlined by LaRouche and his work and that of his associates for the past half-century, the United States has squandered its preeminence as the most productive nation in world history.

The New Testament Gospel according to Mark, Chapter 6:4, informs us of a conversation between Jesus and his disciples:

“Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honor, except in his own native place, and among his own kin, and in his own house.”

Though LaRouche was indeed incarcerated for five years and has never been exonerated of the crime of which he was falsely accused, this was not, primarily the misfortune of LaRouche, but of the United States, the trans-Atlantic nations, and the victims of the permanent warfare unleashed after the 1989 fall of the Berlin Wall. There was a deeper effect and implication to banning the ideas of LaRouche from America’s educational and political institutions, in order to diminish them in the eyes of the American people as a whole. LaRouche writes:

“Consider the fact, that history, as we presently know it, has been dominated by cycles of collapse and, sometimes, at best, recovery. Therefore, how might we be assured, now, that even if we were to rescue humanity from the effects of the presently onrushing global financial and monetary collapse, by the measures which I have proposed, that our thus-revived civilization will not begin to slide back, a generation or two later, into a new round of collapse, a collapse perhaps even worse than that which menaces us at the present moment, a collapse to be suffered by your children or grandchildren?…

“[M]ost of the ancient cultures we have been able to identify, were those which plunged themselves into a prolonged dark age, a dark age brought about by a dominant, characteristic, internal feature of that culture itself. There have been, after all, morally inferior cultures, many of which brought about their own destruction for precisely that reason....” These words are taken from Lyndon LaRouche’s “Jesus Christ and Civilization,” written in 2000, and particularly appropriate to this season of crisis, this winter of our discontent. As Rev. Munther Issac preached in his Christmas sermon from the Biblical city of Bethlehem, Jesus is to be found, this Christmas, under the rubble of Gaza—buried, but alive. 

The power of ideas is greater, higher, than that of principalities and powers, the forces of darkness, and cabbage-headed kings in high places. Murder most foul may not be being prevented at this moment in Gaza, but that does not mean we are powerless in the face of it.

In 2004, when Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat died of either natural or unnatural causes, LaRouche, addressing an Argentine and Peruvian public event, said:

“There is a man in an Israeli prison, who if [Israeli Prime Minister Ariel] Sharon wanted to, and if the United States would pressure Sharon to do it, could be pulled out of prison as a negotiating partner with Sharon, for bringing about, or negotiating, some kind of peace between the Palestinians and the Israelis. If they did agree to acceptable terms, that would, in a sense bring the crisis in the entire Southwest Asia, into some kind of order…. We are obviously going to work for that.”

Yesterday, Schiller Institute founder Helga Zepp-LaRouche renewed the call that that man, Marwan Barghouti, should be released from jail. Jacques Cheminade, President of the Solidarité et Progrès party in France, provided this evaluation:

“According to different sources in the Palestinian liberation movements, only freeing Marwan Barghouti from the Israeli jails can bring the conditions for peace in the region…. He had supported the Oslo Agreements (1993-95) and then faced the opposition of Hamas on this issue. But now Hamas has corrected itself, starting in 2018, under the influence of Yahya Sinwar, who was before that in prison with Bargouthi.

“Hamas has not formally recognized the existence of an Israeli state but has … called for a Palestinian state within the borders of 1967. This means a de facto recognition of Israel outside (of that border). Therefore, both for Barghouti and, in principle, Hamas, the three political issues remaining, once the existence of Israel is recognized, are:

“1) The status of East Jerusalem which all Palestinians want to see as their capital;

“2) The return of the Palestinian families kicked out during the Nakba;

“3) The expulsion of the Israeli settlers from the West Bank.

“Barghouti speaks perfect Hebrew and is respected by a portion of the Israeli intelligence services.” 

We must also expose the evil of war, as Pope Francis suggests be done, by naming the names of the merchants of death, as in our research and publishing campaign against the military-industrial-financial complex. As we do this, we will shed necessary light for the perplexed on the reasons behind what they already see as the transparent sophistry of King Charles III and his depopulation agenda, which surfaced again on December 24. Charles, in what was billed as “a Christmas address,” couldn’t resist misusing the occasion to push the death-agenda of the Anglosphere. A blogger by the name of Jordan Schachtel, in a piece titled “WEF King Charles Uses Christmas Message To Advance Climate Narrative,” and subtitled “Royal Levels of Hypocrisy” wrote:

“On Monday, King Charles III, who we sometimes refer to as the ‘WEF (World Economic Forum) King’ (because he’s one of the world’s most prominent anti-humans), dedicated a significant chunk of the Royal Family’s annual Christmas broadcast to the climate narrative…. ‘During my lifetime I have been so pleased to see a growing awareness of how we must protect the Earth and our natural world as the one home which we all share,’ said Charles, who has been serving as king since September 2022…. During the climate narrative portion of his address, the feed displayed video footage of Charles going full ‘white savior’ mode in Africa. However, the depraved anti-human is an avowed proponent of depopulation, having on multiple occasions called for robust population control measures within the developing world.”

The letters written in response to this posting were overwhelmingly of the following character. One woman wrote:

“Well, there’s one thing (Charles’) good for. We keep our alarm clock on the other side of the bedroom. Had to be up early today to get the turkey going. The radio played a clip from his sermon to the common folk. Never seen my other half move so fast to turn the damn thing off.

“That distinctly ghoulish voice is not something one wishes to hear first thing!

“We’re recovering from the affront to our sensibilities. The turkey’s doing fine. That would be the one in the oven, not the one on the radio.

“P.S. How dare that moron refer to ‘our children’ while still trying to murder them and us with his climate change nonsense. A veritable 21st Century ‘King’ Herod. Hope he ends up the same.”

(For those that are interested, Herod’s life-ending disease is described in highly unpleasant detail in Robert Graves’ I, Claudius: “putrescent stomach, corpse-like breath,” and other things.)

Other responses were considerably angrier. To that anger, we must now attach, not merely thought, but deliberation on the specific alternatives to be proposed to the insanity and folly that will otherwise prevail, as it has so often done in the past, as LaRouche points out. The release of Barghouti; the involvement of Southwest Asia in an “Oasis Plan” as an aspiration of the BRICS and BRICS-Plus nations; and the adoption of the “Swords Into Plowshares” initiative recently announced by Helga Zepp-LaRouche, are only a portion of the arsenal of ideas that is available to those who have what the assassinated Yitzhak Rabin called “the courage to change their axioms.” 

The Prophet Isaiah (2:4) said it:

“They shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.”

Time to Get Rid of Bibi: The Only Pathway to Peace

The vast majority of the world wants an end to the slaughter of Palestinians by Israelis under the direction of their bloodthirsty Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. But, as should be obvious by now, there can be no peace as long as Bibi and the equally deranged Zionist zealots who comprise his government, remain in office.

Even as polls continue to show that the majority of the Israeli population believes in the concept of a two-state solution and the prospect of Palestinians, and other Arabs and Persians coexisting with Israel in peace and potential prosperity, Bibi has declared that it is his policy to exterminate as many Palestinians as possible, and force those he does not kill who remain the occupied territories, to leave. This (Nazi) policy, he claims, will create the basis for peace—the peace of the graveyard.

There is mounting evidence, and a growing belief among Israeli and other intelligence specialists, that Bibi and Israeli agents inside the Hamas orchestrated the events of Oct. 7, which saw the slaughter of more than 1,400 Israelis and the taking of hostage of nearly 250 people, which served as the excuse for the murderous “counter-measures” in Gaza, under the guise of “exterminating” the Hamas. It is well known, and even admitted by Netanyahu, that he helped build up the Hamas in Gaza, including with funds and recruits from Israeli prisons, as a political roadblock to a two state solution, and to weaken the Palestinian Authority, heirs to the Palestine Liberation Organization of the late Yassir Arafat, a signatory, along with the late Israeli Prime Minister Yitzak Rabin, of the Oslo Accords in 1993 (with second accord signed in Cairo in 1995) which committed both the Palestinians and Israel to seek a two-state solution. Agitating then against what he called Rabin’s “treachery,” many Israelis consider Netanyahu as responsible for the murder of the courageous Prime Minister by a religious zealot, which eventually led Bibi’s ascension to power.

Few doubt that Bibi is fully capable of killing Israelis in his efforts to obtain a “final solution” to the Palestinian “problem.” It only remains for a competent investigation of the events of Oct. 7 to prove that case. The U.S. government of sleepy Joe Biben which, it is thought, green-lighted what is now taking place in Gaza, even if it now tries to distance itself a bit from its “breakaway ally” Bibi, needs to have maximum pressure exerted on it to support a full cessation of hostilities and to demand that the world know the truth about what caused Oct. 7 to happen.

Prior to Oct. 7, there were mass demonstrations against Netanyahu, whose corruption is the subject of court cases, and who likely faces jail for his already committed crimes. The Israeli invasion of Gaza was followed by a cessation of such demonstrations, and the alarming repression of Bibi’s opponents, who, like the major Israeli paper Haaretz continue to demand his ouster and speak up against the manifest war crimes being committed by the Israel Defense Forces on Netanyahu’s command. Such opponents worry that Israel might become a police state, with their violent repression of truth and justice, committed by Nazi-like gangs of religious zealot thugs.

All this makes Bibi’s removal a matter of urgent, immediate necessity. If the world wants to see a halt to the genocide against the Palestinians and negotiations for peace, with a two-state solution, the proper Israeli negotiating partner needs to be created now. Benjamin Netanyahu is not that partner! That means Bibi must go, or the death totals, on both sides will continue to rise, with the rise also of the threat of a wider, even more dangerous conflict erupting, potentially not only involving a nuclear armed Israel but nuclear armed superpowers.

Bibi’s weak flank is what took place on Oct. 7. Get to the bottom of that, and he is gone. And he should face a tribunal for his crimes against humanity.
