Chas Freeman Asserts Israelis Have Become Psychopathic Killers

April 22, 2024 (EIRNS)—Former U.S. Ambassador Chas Freeman gave a 45-minute video interview on April 19 to Dr. Pascal Lottaz, a Swiss citizen who is a professor at Waseda University in Japan. Freeman issued a no-holds-barred attack on the insanity now governing Israel, and the complicity of the U.S. and the British and other European countries which have promoted the genocide taking place there. He began by noting that he had been pro-Zionist as a young man, but then became, first, a skeptic, and is now a critic, recognizing that the Zionist argument that anything is allowed because “we have a right to exist” between the river and the sea, essentially means that no one else has such a right. They openly promote that all Palestinians should be forced out, or killed, or starved to death. Freeman stressed: This is a level of evil, of cruelty that I could never imagine. They have become psychopathic, they dehumanized the indigenous population. These are often descendants of those who had been attacked by the Holocaust, but now have no compunction at all over mass murder, including women and children. Nothing could be further from the tenets of Judaism. “I am convinced that Zionism is not Judaism, but a form of fascism,” said Freeman. I am ashamed of my country’s engagement in genocide, vetoing ceasefire, and even preventing Palestine from being recognized as a state. The United States cannot succeed with this level of duplicity and degradation. “This is deeply depressing to me as an American—I have not slept well for six months.”

The Israeli Cabinet is in part made up of fanatics, he said. The U.S. vote in the Congress for the wars means that Israel is being reimbursed for genocide. The Israeli “deterrence” is “overwhelming savagery.”

Israel, as a result, “Has no credibility at all, and the U.S. is not far behind.” He referenced the slaughter of innocents, as well as the bombing of the Iran consulate in Damascus. He said that the Iran response-attack on Israel was very carefully targeted at military, not civilians, such that no one was killed, even though it was retaliation for the Israeli killing of several Iranian leaders. Iran has demonstrated that the West is vulnerable, noting that the Saudi and the U.A.E. declarations that the U.S. may not use the bases in their countries for any attack on Iran has basically neutralized the U.S. forces in the region. Iran has now given up their policy of “strategic restraint” which they followed, despite Israeli assassinations of several of their leaders in the past, due to the April 1 attack on their sovereign diplomatic territory in Syria.
