The Madness Of Israel
Must Not Continue

Jim Kirwan
In a day or so Condoleezza Rice will yet again appear at the microphones in the Middle-East spewing new lies upon old promises while mouthing all the same-old worn-out words that have no meaning to anyone that's been watching for these last four decades. She will be coming to talk about her Owner's two-state solution: Here's a recent map: can you see any possibility for anything like two separate but equal states?
This open wound in the heart of the Middle East was created by a combination of deceptions and black-ops intrigues that has over the decades only continued to deepen. We must close this wound by force if necessary.
Just today we learned what really happened to the money that the Pentagon lost at the beginning of the Iraq war-it went to Israel!
"Think of this as part two of Recherche du trillions perdu, my Online Journal article on Dov Zakheim, former Bush appointee as Pentagon Comptroller from May 4, 2001 to March 10, 2004. At that time he was unable to explain the disappearance of $1 trillion dollars. Actually, nearly three years earlier, Donald Rumsfeld announced on September 10, 2001 that an audit discovered $2.3 trillion was also missing from the Pentagon books. That story, as I mentioned, was buried under 9-11's rubble. The two sums disappeared on Zakheim's watch.
Yet on May 6, 2004, Zakheim took a lucrative position at Booz Allen Hamilton, one of the most prestigious strategy consulting firms in the world. One of its clients then was Blessed Relief, a charity said to be a front for Osama bin Laden. Booz, Allen & Hamilton then also worked closely with DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, which is the research arm of the Department of Defense. So the dark card was shifted to another part of the deck.
Judicial Inc's bio of Dov (linked below) tells us Zakheim was/is a dual Israeli/American citizen and an ordained rabbi and had been tracking the halls of US government for 25 years, casting defense policy and influence on Presidents Reagan, Clinton, Bush Sr. and Bush Jr. He is, as I described him earlier, the bionic Zionist. In fact, Judicial Inc points out that most of Israel's armaments were gotten thanks to him. Squads of US F-16 and F-15 were classified military surplus and sold to Israel at a fraction of their value."(1)
And if that's not enough to make your blood boil, add the three trillion more that the war will directly cost the US taxpayers, for our part in the fighting and the dying that will last until the last US casualty dies.
Six trillion dollars, and tell me again-how many Israeli's have died in that war! The US taxpayers have armed Israel to the teeth, and we have not demanded anything in return. We should leave Iraq immediately and replace every one of ours with IDF forces so that they can begin to fight their own actual wars: instead of just bombing and strafing the civilians inside Palestine and elsewhere. If Israel were actually threatened by armed and angry enemies that can fight back, she might not be so cavalier about killing so very many Palestinians as she has been since 1946. (2)
A great many people have been sucked in to believing Israel's one- sided explanations for their current position, in their continuing genocide against the Palestinians. However there's a new book coming out about something that happened in 1953: Something that cast a huge amount of light on our own position in Iran at that time, and as it turns out, in the entire Middle-East, right up until today.
STEPHEN KINZER" from his book: "All the Shah's Men: An American Coup and the Roots of Middle East Terror:" was Bruce Laingen, who had been the chief American diplomat in Iran and was the most prominent figure among the hostages that were held there for 444 days. And I knew that Laingen had become an advocate of reconciliation with Iran, which I consider quite remarkable, considering the ordeal that he suffered.
He told me an amazing story. He said, "I had been sitting in my solitary cell as a hostage for about a year, when one day the cell door opens, and there is standing one of the hostage takers, one of my jailers. And all of my rage and my fury built up over one year sitting in that cell just burst out, and I started screaming at him, and I was telling him, 'You have no right to do this! This is cruel, this is inhumane! These people have done nothing! This is a violation of every law of god and man! You cannot take innocent people hostage!'" He said, "I went on like this for several minutes. When I was finally out of breath, the hostage taker paused for a moment, and then he leaned into my cell and said, in very good English, 'You have no right to complain, because you took our whole country hostage in 1953.'"
The interview continues:
"Just very briefly, so we placed the Shah back on his peacock throne. The Shah ruled with increasing repression for twenty-five years. His repression set off the explosion of the late 1970s, what we call the Islamic Revolution. That revolution brought to power a clique of fanatically anti-American mullahs. That revolution also inspired radicals in other countries, like next-door Afghanistan, where the Taliban came to power and gave shelter to al-Qaeda with results we all know. That instability in Iran that followed that revolution also led Iran's great enemy next door, Saddam Hussein, to invade Iran. That not only set off an eight-year war between Iran and Iraq, but it also brought the United States into its death embrace with Saddam. We were the military allies of Saddam during the Iran-Iraq War, and we were supplying Saddam with military intelligence, with Bell helicopters that he used to spray gas on Iranian positions. President Reagan sent a special envoy twice to Baghdad to negotiate with Saddam and ask him how we could help him. And, of course, that envoy was Donald Rumsfeld. So that instability set off by that revolution also led the United States into the spiral in Iraq that brought us to the point where we are now.
That revolution in Iran also spooked the Soviets. They were terrified that there would be copycat fundamentalist revolutions all along their southern flank. And to prevent that, they invaded Afghanistan. That brought the United States into its position in Afghanistan, where we brought Osama bin Laden there, we trained all these tens of thousands of jihadis in how to kill infidels, which they later became the Taliban. We later became the infidels they wanted to kill. So why is this all so important for today?
AMY GOODMAN: And, in fact, it affected the Carter-Reagan elections, brought Reagan to power.
STEPHEN KINZER: Oh, and it devastated the presidency of Jimmy Carter forever, absolutely.
AMY GOODMAN: Which had enormous effect then on Latin America, when you look at Reagan's role in Latin America in the '80s.
STEPHEN KINZER: You can-they call it in the CIA "walking back the cat." You can walk back the cat endlessly on this one. And the reason the story is so relevant is that it tells us the main thing you need to know in assessing the current idea of an attack on Iran, which is the worst consequences are ones you can't even imagine. . ." (3)
For years I've been screaming about the lack of consequences for our actions everywhere in the world. It appears that I was very, very wrong on this one: because there have been consequences everywhere, hiding in plain sight! Which is all the more reason that Americans must demand that our Owners reign in the madness that we have unleashed, through Israel onto what's left of Palestine?
Look at that map above one more time and ask yourself what happened to all that land that Israel, as the occupying force, was supposed to be protecting for the Palestinians, its rightful owners! It is not what aggressor nations say that matters but rather what they do! And between the USA and Israel we have been the aggressors now for 52 years: THAT'S LONG ENOUGH, we need to CHANGE that situation so that everything else can return to the normal levels of political corruption that all of us take for granted!
