UPSHOT COLUMN, THURS jan 15, 2009
The obvious partnership of the superpower and a tiny Middle East nation is mind boggling. Both Republicans and Democrats support Israel in their Gaza invasion because the rich and powerful American Jewish community, who control media, Hollywood, hedge funds, investment banks, among other things, give funds to their campaigns and their cause. It is a 'power quid-pro-quo'.
Their political power is totally dependent on this small rich community. That is why they are but glorified puppets of the power behind their power. They, in their myopia to see the global perspective, they who turn inward to see only their faces in the mirror on the wall, are under the mercy of this elite group who hold the destiny of the planet in their hands. This Jewish elite not only virtually controls America but also the world.
That the Obama regime is utterly pro-Israel is obvious. That was why he was silent for a long time. He knew a pro-Israel statement would draw flack. But Obama was shrewd. He knew he could not stay silent forever, so he let the legislators say it for him, so he would not get the flack directly. A late short statement was drowned by legislators proclaiming their support for Israel. Pro-Israel senators and congressmen from both Democrat and Republican camps issued shocking statements that would scandalize non-Americans, who have been condemning Israel for its bloodbath invasion. Even a few
Americans who can see through the media mist is privy to the Obama ploy and to this sinister partnership.
Some of the statements of the legislators included blaming Hamas for the carnage of the Israelis, telling Hamas to stop first it rocket attacks if they want Israel to also stop the carnage, placing emphasis on the rocket attack casualties of four and not on the 800-odd casualties of Palestinians (as of this writing), a quarter of whom are women and children, being silent on growing international non-combatant casualties from Israeli bombings, namely journalists, U.N. personnel, and paramedics, executing genocide through a food and water blockade, and finally, vetoing the UN Security Council resolution demanding Israel to stop its invasion.
Already, there are threats of charges of war crimes to be put forward in De Hague. But the Israelis are arrogant, defying UN resolutions, saying the world has no right to decide on its own security measures in its own lands (the Gaza strip is not theirs), continuing with the bloodbath in spite of a worldwide call for them to stop their invasion. They are undaunted because they know America is behind them.
They showered Gaza with thousands of leaflets telling the Palestinians to condemn Hamas. In truth, the goal of the overkill invasion is to force the Palestinians to condemn Hamas and stop its rocket attacks. This logic is pitiable because it is the exact opposite. The carnage is rallying people to Hamas. The Isaraelis are strengthening their enemy and catalyzing rapid of growth of future retaliations. How can you support an enemy who is killing people all around you? It is unfortunate that such powerful weapons are in the hands of myopic minds with very little geopolitical wisdom. It is actually a knee-jerk blind-rage overkill invasion, bereft of any deep thinking or well-thought strategy. It is the reflex of a child.
The US-Israeli partnership actually antedates both Obama and the Palestinian conflict. The Jewish tycoons like the Rotschilds became rapidly and intensely wealthy by funding both sides of World War I. They came to America and started taking over the economy. Today, they control media, filmdom, banking, large corporations and have people in Washington, the State Department, the National Security Agency, etc. The geopolitical partnership of the US with Israel is monolithic and invincible because it is the ultimate quid pro quo of power for power. I pedestal you if you fulfill my demands. Nobody can just disrupt this powerful partnership. Getting a non-pro-Israel President on the throne is virtually impossible. The American Jewish community will simply pour massive election funds on his rival. They have the capability to choose the President. Even if a non-pro-Israel President wins, he will be roasted at the stake by the Legislative and Judicial branches of government.
]It is a repeat of history. The Christians Crusaders and Muslims Saracens were the giants who hemmed in the tiny Jews. They massacred the Jews throughout history. But the Jews had a secret formula participation in the ruling class of their enemies. The Jews participated in almost all powerful monarchies of the middle ages, Christian or Muslim. They participated in the Arab renaissance and the Western industrial revolution. It was like Moses being in the inner circle of the Pharaohs. The key to this success was participating without being absorbed. Throughout history, they conquered the Jews but their culture and religion remained intact in spite of conquest. It is something they learned from the days of the Pharaohs. Whereas other conquered races are absorbed by the conquerors, whereas Filipinos became Christians, the Jews always maintained their cultural and religious ιlan within other powerful cultures.
That the US Israeli partnership will finally cause World War III is not impossible. By arming Israel to the teeth and using it as a wedge to pry oil from the Arabs, the superpower has triggered a runaway arms race that leads to Armageddon, the battlefield where the most powerful kings will meet.
