There is more than one contender for the title of top "rogue state": the US empire has killed millions in its illegal wars; the UK empire did the same and has been subsequently complicit in fabricating pretexts for war while adding arms, subterfuge and propaganda to the mix; but Israel's role in manipulating the US, UK and many other nations into acts of evil is without parallel. The Zionist project was conceived in the corridors of power of the US, UK and Europe and executed with merciless aggression; its fingerprints are all over wars and acts of terror, throughout the world, in the 21st century.
Remember, this is not the people of Israel or Jews but the Israeli state acting under the control of the Structural Elite within a flawed, global political and economic system. It is this system which creates obscene policies in the US, Europe and the UK: the UK government is proposing to criminalise the boycott of Israeli goods by UK public bodies irrespective of the will of the democratic process.

Critics say move amounts to a 'gross attack on democratic freedoms'
Israel's insidious influence on UK, US and European governments is bad enough but it also acts with impunity within its own borders in persecuting and killing the indigenous Palestinian population, stealing their land and denying them access to water.
WHAT'S YOURS IS MINE by Thomas L. Are
Israel’s history of addressing its water needs is, as long as we have a weaker neighbor with a water source, we will never run out; “What’s mine is mine and I will keep it, and what’s yours is mine, and I will take it.” Mr. Katz-Oz, Israel’s negotiator on water issues, said, “There is no reason for Palestinians to claim that just because they sit on lands, they have the rights to that water”
Claims of piety and purity of the aspirant Jewish state obscure the seedy underbelly of the reality of the Zionist project in Israel.
Sex Slavery in Israel By Dr. Martin Brass
Half-Billion-Dollar "Industry" Largely Staffed By Sex Slaves
Israel prides itself as a "beacon of light," paving an enlightened path for democracy and human rights in a region of dictators, theocracies, tyrants and human rights abusers.
In July 2001, the U.S. State Department placed Israel on a "third tier" list of countries, or worst offenders, of Traffickers in Persons. In the shadows of the "beacon of light" lurks a brutal and inhumane abuse - trafficking of women and children for the sex-slave trade. Israel was on the same list as Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Sudan, Yugoslavia, Bahrain, Greece, Pakistan, Qatar, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates and 12 others.
Israel came into existence through violence and bloodshed which is by no means unusual or unique; most states came into being in the same way but ever since its foundation, it has sought not just to exist (in peace with its neighbours) but to dominate the Middle East and extend its pernicious influence around the world while riding roughshod over or eliminating all people who stand in its way. It is truly the pre-eminent rogue state. Its power cannot be removed through military might but only by cutting of the source of its power and that of the Structural Elite which drives it - the flaws in the political economy. Then the interests of all people including Jews, Muslims and Christians can be accommodated within a harmonious world, rather than one steeped in conflict, oppression and blood.
