“It may be the final battle for the future of Israel – between the zealots of Greater Israel and the supporters of a liberal state. Between a mini-empire that dominates and oppresses another people and a decent democracy. Between settlement expansion and a serious search for peace. Between what has been called here “swinish capitalism” and a welfare state.”

So veteran political analyst Uri Avneri sums up Israel’s impending election.   But it’s not just about the future of Israel, nor is the election outcome likely to change underlying Zionist policies, though the rhetoric and political theatrics would shift somewhat.  There are very powerful Jewish-controlled media and business institutions worldwide that are greatly affected by, even controlled by,  international Zionism.   And then there are the multitude of political and propaganda (hasbara) institutions.

Though a very small people in numbers the Jewish people and their now dominant imperial Zionist ideology of all stripes (aka secular religion) play a remarkably over-sized role in the affairs of the world.

“Destructive of the fabric of the relationship”

25 02 2015

Referring to Israel, that’s the phrase just used publicly by the White House National Security Adviser on a major TV program about U-S Israeli relations these days.   Clearly it was not a mistake, it was very much by design and had to be green-lighted by POTUS himself.

And yet, practically at the same time, the U.S. has just sold Israel (well actually given in view of how the money is handled) a large number of the very latest stealth attack aircraft, each worth more than $100 million, and whose only purpose can be to provide Israel the military superiority to attack Iran or Syria or any other country in the region.

The current public confrontation between the Israelis and the Americans, Netanyahu and Obama, is one of the most dramatic and public ever.   But actually there have been many in the past and the Israelis always prevail.

The backdrop to all this is that the Americans are pulling out all stops to get Netanyahu defeated in the upcoming election.   The Israelis meanwhile are pulling out all stops to further weaken Obama, to out-maneuver him politically, to undermine any agreement with Iran, to get as much as they can from the Congress and the Pentagon, and to put someone even more compliant than Obama in the White House in 2016.

COLD WAR II – The U.S. Versus Russia

23 02 2015

Trend: Americans' Favorable/Unfavorable Ratings of Russia

Trend: Americans' Perceptions of Russia's Military Power as a Critical Threat to U.S.

What one country anywhere in the world do you consider to be the United States’ greatest enemy today? [OPEN-ENDED] 2011-2015 trend


22 02 2015

He didn’t end America’s wars, he expanded them and is preparing for more!   He didn’t change the overall U.S. CIA-NSA-PENTAGON war-think, he oversaw it’s expansion while shifting to more techno/ drone killings, enhanced bombing techniques, the mutation of NATO (remember Libya?), and considerably enhanced CIA black ops and NSA spy ops.

He became the President arresting more whistle-blowers than all others in history, threatened the basic freedoms of the Press, further legitimizing the infringement on habeas corpus,  and he didn’t even close Gitmo!

Furthermore still, he didn’t hold any US government officials responsible for their gross historic lies and war crimes, and he didn’t hold any of the Wall Street thieves culpable for their meltdown of the economy to feed their narcissistic gluttony!

When “hope and change” Obama leaves the White House, US military, CIA operatives, NSA spying, and “contractors” galor, will be far more rampant…and not only in the Middle East.   Obama has also overseen the creation of Cold War II, and the counter-reaction from both war-sanctioned Russia and pivoted-to China is understandable.  Oh yes, let’s not forget he and the top American allies helped create ISIS (his ISIL) and he now is using it as his excuse for new war powers!

Hard to believe when you think back to Obama’s 2008 campaign, but when he departs after two terms US troops and contractors will still be in both Iraq and Afghanistan with American mercenary armies from Kurdistan to Kiev, along with the traditional ones in Saudi, UAE, Qatar, Kuwait, Jordan, Egypt and of course the Israelis!

And now the Dem Party expects us to rally around Hillary?!!    ….because the alternative is so much worse?!!

Netanyahu is blinking

19 02 2015

The following comes from a news report today and it shows the Israeli Prime Minister is blinking ahead of his 3 March speech which hitherto has been billed as a major address to a “Joint Session of Congress”.   This may be one of those rare times where Obama and his team have outmanuever Bibi who largest consideration right now is how this all will play out back home with the Israeli election less than a month away.

A source close to Netanyahu’s office had said Israeli officials were considering amending the format of the speech to perhaps have the prime minister speak in a closed session of Congress or in smaller meetings with lawmakers.

Valiant Professor Obama

19 02 2015

In this case he’s valiantly trying to be Professor Obama and hold back the Neocons, the Zionists, and the military-industrial minions from provoking religious, regional, and even World War.

But the American main stream media is so resistant to serious thoughtful nuanced discussion, and the American people are so use to being brainwashed and ignorant about the world at large, that his efforts are sometimes having counter-results…for instance the cover today in the New York Post.

HOPE for Palestine! PA about to COLLAPSE!

14 02 2015

Many will find this hard to comprehend, but those who seek the well-being and rights of the Palestinian people as a whole should be cheering.  If and when the collaborationist quisling US/Israel-sponsored regime of Palestinian VIPS and Masri tycoons is gone from Ramallah there should be firework celebrations not despair.  Ending the PA and reversing the terrible harm and divisions it has brought to the Palestinian people is a prerequisite now for the reassertion of Palestinian rights, dignity, and future real independence.

Today’s report that the Israeli Army is warning the Israeli government that Abbas and his “security cooperation” PA “could collapse at any moment” should be greeted by the rest of us with glee and “it’s about time!” sentiments.  The JP article about this is top at MiddleEast.Org today.
