American Predicament – Israel an ally or adversary?

February 23, 2012

Back to the future – In 1968, American journalist, the late John Mitchell Henshaw compilation of Israeli aggression in the Sinai region with remarkable insight to consequences has been unfolding accordingly.

United States as the scapegoat evident in the attack against USS Liberty resulting in 34 U.S. Marines sacrifice with no apology or remorse has left a permanent scar in the relation between U.S. military top brass and ‘foreign’ policy architects controlling the White House and the U.S. State Department in particular until today.

The drumbeat for war and jingoism is definitely not in humanity or United States interest.

United States military – the institution with unparalleled technological know-how and operational strategy earnestly striving to abide by international conventions in the rescue mission whether in combat zone or civilian humanitarian aid has been usurped by forces outside of the military confines exerting authority over warfare implementation.

The subjugation of formidable armed forces military command to the will of overzealous ideologues not only erodes reputation but also undermines efficacy in national defense due to administration enforced loyalty towards Israel.

The events subsequent to 1967 Israeli invasion of Palestinian territories, Syria, Jordan and Egypt have contributed to Middle East perpetual volatility and fundamentalism conducive for ulterior motive – regional supremacy.

Utilizing United States military upfront or in the aftermath of Israeli strike against Iranian nuclear facility is extemporaneous not to mention the stakes for U.S. troops in Persian Gulf and universal impact on oil price.

Judging from history leading to contemporary situation in Middle East,

It is clear the polarized oil producing nations facilitate oppression and dominance to self-detriment.

Israel – supposedly the only democratic nation in the region successful prevention of democracy, political freedom and secularism viewed quintessential threat to predisposed ambition is the bedrock of violence and global terrorism.

U.S. military intervention in Afghanistan and involvement in Iraq under false pretexts exacerbated with lack of political commitment to investigate crimes against humanity confirms complicity and complacency to perpetration behind September 11 attacks once again expending innocent lives – both American and international serving explicit goals in the rise to power.

The distinction in response to crimes in the so-called democracy is intriguing with demand for justice fervor at peak when the accused represents mainstream population.

Juxtaposed anything to do with political establishment and privileged class – the Samaritan thoughts surface emphasizing the need to lay the matter to rest subverting the request for justice on loss of precious lives and war ramifications a vengeance.,

The double standards arguably contradictory to claim on society’s progress transcending social and economic identity despite the discriminatory practice setting precedence for the future.

United States awakening to reality would avert cataclysmic effects on human lives, economy and environment.

Armed forces recruitment is to defend national borders and republic from overt or covert conquest and not for deployment to suit specific agenda endangering service men and women lives in the archaic notion for imperialism.

Israel as the holocaust survivor reversing the trend in persecution and human rights violation would elevate the position in international stature currently diminished from the tradition continued since establishment of the State.

The article on Middle East turbulence in 1967 published in 1968 is encapsulation of ideology driven colonization exploiting the benefactor – United States military power in the end justifying the means.

United States politics swayed by intrusive postulates has relinquished reasoning power demonstrated in the willful submission of military and economic resources compromising national sovereignty in the non-reciprocal de facto partnership.

The fundamental facts in the publication is a gentle reminder to United States and Arab league presently engaged in destabilization of Syria to refrain from precipitating self-immolation.

The article provides cognitive account of Middle East scenario and United States predicament in the Zionists led flawed aspiration.

Ending chaos and destruction in Syria is paramount for any reform to be effective now and beyond.

Democratic powers have unique opportunity to exemplify values in renouncing military and economic warfare against nations perceived as easy targets in the regime change manifesto.

Peace and diplomacy are the only options for dispute settlements in the Middle East and world over.

Peace to all!

Thank you.

Israel’s Grand Design: Leaders Crave Area from Egypt to Iraq – By John Mitchell Henshaw.

Source:: – Thank you.

From: Media Monitors Network

Nearly 34 years ago, an America-firster used The American Mercury magazine to warn of the danger posed by Zionism and its rule of Washington and the Mideast.

John Henshaw wrote this article shortly after Israel laid claim to the annexed land  during 1967 Arab-Israeli war. This article first appeared in the spring of 1968,

The metamorphosis of tiny Israel from a midget to a giant is in the making.

Zionist expansionist doctrine is to seize all the oil-rich lands from the shores of the Euphrates to the banks of the Nile.

The scope of this ambitious scheme of territorial seizures and exploitation has been recognized by at least a few of our American military strategists for years.

This writer recalls that a dozen years ago an Army lieutenant colonel, who was a student at the War College, confined that some of his instructors believed –

The Zionist expansionist policy would provide the spark to ignite World War III.

(Incidentally, the then lieutenant colonel is now one of the top commanding generals in Vietnam.)

By guile, treachery and bloodletting, the Zionists plot to annex all of Jordan, virtually all of Syria, half of Iraq and a large part of Saudi Arabia and all of the rich cotton lands of the Nile Valley.

It would be a simpler matter then to grab Yemen, Aden, Muscat, Qatar and Oman with their rich oil development. Israel is already well advanced in the development of its first nuclear warhead.

Genocide in Six-day War

During the Six-Day War last summer, Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Dayan ordered Brig. Gen. Yesha’ahu Gavish, the Israeli commander of the Sinai campaign, to ruthlessly drive the hapless Egyptian troops into the Sinai Desert to die of thirst, hunger and heat.

Temperature on the arid Sinai rise to more than 100 degrees during the day.

For over two weeks thousands of wretched Egyptian stragglers wandered over the swirling wastes finally drop dead in their tracks.

U.S. reconnaissance planes flying on the perimeter of the Sinai Desert took hundreds of pictures of the stragglers and reported there were 50,000 Egyptians dead or dying on the desert at the time.

The U.S. Air Force loaded 60,000 gallons of water in five-gallon jerry-cans on pallets and prepared to drop them in the area where stragglers were observed.

However, Defense Secretary Robert McNamara ordered the projected mission of mercy halted after he received phone calls from White House foreign policy-planner Walt Rostow and UN Ambassador Arthur Goldberg.

This flagrant violation of the Geneva Convention on the treatment of prisoners of war amounted to genocide, designed to destroy a whole nation.

Newspaper reporters visiting the war zones in Syria and Jordan, reported that if one sniper in a village fired on Israeli troops, the whole village was destroyed including the women and children. Napalm is frequently used.

This systematic extermination is an ideological doctrine of Zionism.

The British have expressed the pious hope that their withdrawal would galvanize the Arab rulers into dropping their feuds and really unite in a mutual defense pact.

Like the tentacles of an octopus the Israeli armed forces struck out in all directions into Jordan, Syria and Egypt in Israel’s Six-Day aggression.

Last June. Even when encountering no resistance, the Israeli armored forces abruptly halted at predetermined strategic terrain points; they had accomplished their mission in the first phase of the Zionist Grand Design of imperialistic conquest.

It was time to stop and consolidate their gains rather than risk spreading their forces too thin.

Israeli leader Menachem Begin says:

“The return of even one bit of earth to the Arab would be a betrayal of the nation.”

Officially Israel is continuing the pretense of keeping the door open to negotiations that might result in return of the conquered territory, in exchange for Arab recognition of Israel and peace treaty.

Jordan’s King Hussein has reportedly already made a secret and desperate offer to Israel: In exchange for the return of the West Bank of the Jordan River, Hussein agreed to demilitarize it, negotiate border adjustments and even waive his insistence upon regaining the Old City of Jerusalem.

Israel rejected the offer. Israeli Minister of Labor Yigal Allon bluntly stated:

“The natural border of the country is the Jordan River – a border that would be established only if Israel kept the West Bank areas it took from Jordan.”

Gen. Aluf Ezer Weizmann, second highest-ranking officer in the Israeli army, is even more adamant:

“We shall stay where we are and bring in Jews. We now have the unusual opportunity to consolidate the state for the Jewish people and help prevent future wars.”

“If there is a fourth war,” Defense Minister Moshe Dayan gloats, “we are in a position to win more decisively than ever.”

And he warned that in the “fourth war” the great cities of Cairo, Damascus and Amman will be annihilated. This is in conformity with the genocidal plan.

The Zionists have invented the term “coercive noninterference” in explaining how they force the subjugated Arabs to cooperate with their conquerors.

When the mayor of Nablus announced that he would resign rather than front for the Jews, the Israeli military officers told him that no one would be appointed to replace him, which would result in utter chaos.

The mayor had second thoughts, stayed and obeyed the Jewish military commanders. Hundreds of similar examples could be cited.

Arabs Fear Genocide

“The Middle East today is dominated by raw, naked, savage, animal fear.

TheArab nations are driven by the fear of mass death, by the fear of Israel’s genocidal intentions toward them. Israel, by bringing in immigrants from all over the world, has upset the demographic balance of the Middle East.

“The first basic fact about populations is that they multiply.

They population of Israel is increasing, and the populations of the Arab nations are increasing.

In the conflict between populations, either Arabs or Jews must someday end up being driven into arid desert wastes which will not support them, where they will find relief only in the oblivion of death.

Israel means to kill the Arab populations and to occupy their lands.

The Arabs, driven by fear of death, react powerfully.

They seek the protection of a powerful nation, Russia, to which they will become tributary in return for protection…

“For the free world, this is a practically irretrievable disaster,” says Benjamin H. Freedman.

We might well rationalize all this as strictly none of our business except that hundred of millions of American foreign aid dollars are being spend for the enrichment of the international Zionist network extending from Tel Aviv to Paris, London and New York.

The Israelis are already pumping oil from Egyptian wells and splitting the profits with Rockefeller’s Standard Oil combine. This is only the prelude.

However, the spreading oil boom is intensifying the territorial ambitions of rival kingdoms, sultanates and sheikdoms. Iran is selling oil to Israel, another aggravating factor in Mideast tensions.

According to the Zionists’ schedule of operations, within a decade the Israeli empire be the master of the Middle East and take its place as a nuclear superpower on equal footing with the Soviet Union and the United States.

David Rockefeller’s Standard Oil Company will pay its royalties to the Israeli military usurpers instead of the Arab sheiks.

The sub-rosa partnership between Zionism and communism is still a fact.

As Israel drives the Arabs into the arms of the Kremlin, Israel expands, fulfilling a grand design and an aggressive plan agreed upon years ago.

And like the Arabs, Americans are helpless victims in this international crime.”
