The US and Israel want a war with Iran and another conflict with Gaza
Anyone with an ounce of intelligence can see that the writing is on the wall for more trouble in the Middle East. They cannot see the bigger picture that this could spark off a major war in the region or maybe this is exactly what they want. We again see nice calm words coming from the lips of IAEA Director General Mohamed ElBaradei when he made it very clear that Iran was nothing to worry about.
Amidst this calm of the IAEA Director General we again see the US rallying up support for more decisive actions against Iran. One could ask the question why insist on sending in the experts from the IAEA but not waiting for their report. Why is Obama so aggressive in his mannerism towards Iran……could it be that he really does want conflict and is just waiting for an excuse in much the same way as his predecessor?
Even after the IAEA Director General had calmed us all with his initial findings we saw Obama buttering up Russia’s Medvedev and using the same language to show he his the leader of the most powerful country on earth! He stated that time was running out for diplomacy to resolve a crisis over Iran’s nuclear programme. As we know the UN brokered a deal for Iran (which we know was worded by the US) and I am sure we can all assume that the US and its allies will find some economic gain from the proposal. One could almost see Obama put the words in the Russian Presidents mouth when he said "other means" could be used if discussions did not yield results, but did not specify what they might be…..this could mean one of two things….that Russia would now possibly agree to sanctions or that the US will turn on the pressure for a military alternative. I am sure that if it is the latter then Israel will be more than willing to become the pawn or sacrificial lamb to lead the charge, with catastrophic results.
We saw once again the true colours of Netanyahu when he made it clear that Israel would not accept any attempt for the Palestinians to seek their own sovereignty via the United Nations. He warned the Palestinian leadership against any attempts to unilaterally declare statehood for the Gaza Strip, the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem. West Bank-based Palestinian officials said on Sunday that they were preparing to ask the United Nations Security Council to declare their backing for the Palestinian quest for an independent state.
Netanyahu was obviously flexing his muscles by insisting that any arrangement must be done between Israel and Palestine and not by any other authority. He said: "There is no substitute for negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.”Any unilateral action would only unravel the framework of agreements between us and can only lead to one-sided steps on the part of Israel." I guess the big question here is that everyone agrees to a two state solution but Israel will not allow Palestine to negotiate its own agenda via the United Nations and the international community. If one was to accept such restrictions then one could equally say that Israel has to consult with Palestine in any activity outside of its own territory……this obviously would mean that Israel would not be able to do anything within West Bank and Gaza without consulting the Palestinian Authority.
It was interesting to learn that Israel legal experts were indicating that this type of action by Palestine would cancel interim peace accords…..I would ask what peace accords?.......they have violated almost every aspect of the accords to date especially the Oslo Peace accord in relation to offshore fishing limits etc. This is a clear cut case of big brother bully tactics. I hope and pray that we will see the day when the “Berlin Wall” comes down and we see a long line of Israeli’s, with all their belongings leaving West Bank…..no doubt if this ever happens we will see a repeat of what happened in Gaza upon withdrawal……a total dismantling of the main infrastructure such as the airport etc…..one could almost say a cut and burn policy. This is typical of the evil mentality that Israel has become.
We also saw Netanyahu carrying out an inspection of one of the Israeli Naval vessels. He his seen here looking out from the deck while visiting the navy ship INS Eilat in the northern Israeli city of Haifa, Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2009. Underscoring Israel's military might, Israel's prime minister warned about the dangers of a nuclear Iran Tuesday after visiting a submarine believed capable of carrying nuclear-tipped missiles and a ship used to seize weapons Israel says were being sent to Lebanese foes by Iran. I find it hard who to believe in the current climate as there are so many “False Flags” and “Conspiracy theories” going around one has to evaluate which story is true and which story is made up to re enforce the US/Israel agenda. Either way one can see they are certainly on a war footing.
I find it extremely hard to understand how the Israeli Government can create a situation in Gaza that is so much like the “Ghetto’s of Warsaw”…..in actual fact I would have to say even worse than Warsaw. How can such a government become a Neo Nazism/Neo Fascism regime……..the very regime that spread fear into the hearts of those that lived through this terrible period……how can they who mourn “The Holocaust” which as we all know was a period of mass genocide create such a genocide on the people of Palestinians? I feel that they have now become so much like the early Christian Puritans that changed the face of Christianity into today’s Christian Zionism. Any form of Zionism is truly the axis of evil.
I myself felt so much compassion towards the Jewish struggle during WW2 but the actions of today’s Israeli Government keeps chipping away at that compassion. I feel that the Netanyahu led government has taken Israel to the brink of beyond reason. Israel has truly stepped over the line to a point that its next action could result not only in achieving it goal of attacking Iranian nuclear facilities but with the added ability of turning the region into a possible WW3. It is clear that Israel with the support of the US is clearly concerned at the existence of Syria, Lebanon and Palestine and therefore any possible conflict does not rest only on Iran.
We have to fully understand the reason why both the US, UK and NATO Governments support Israel so profoundly. The existence of Israel and the support of its military might are as important as a major base and ally in amidst the major oil producing countries and in the heart of the Islamic world. The US has now managed to tame Egypt by offering it substantial aid which as we all know amounts to pre conditions. Those condition insist that Egypt remains peaceful with Israel and also allows both the US and Israel to control the Rafah crossing in Gaza.
Israel basically has become a state of the US and under its pseudonym known as Israel has also become one of the largest US fed bases in the world. This allows the US and Israel to monitor and control the Eastern Mediterranean region. When one looks further afield we can now see more than 100 bases in Iraq, over 80 in Afghanistan with an existing free hand in Turkey, Kuwait, Saudi, Jordan and Egypt.
We now see the French with a major base in UAE along with the current freedom of the US and UK in the region. Finally we have that notorious MOU that Livni rushed to Rice on her last day in office to sow up the coastline of the entire East Med region. This MOU guaranteed Israel the offshore security by the US and NATO in this oil/gas rich region. To further add insult to injury Abbas handed over control of the offshore Gaza area to Israel which has now resulted into a total blockade by the Israel Navy and the protection and control of the natural resources that lie within. As a direct result of Abbas’s actions the fishing industry of Gaza, that was so vital to their well being, has now totally collapsed.
I sincerely believe that what Palestine is trying to do in its direct approach to the UN is not only a case of self determination but also just. They really have nothing to loose because all existing so called peace agreements are totally violated by Israel itself. It is time for the Palestinian to urgently and aggressively seek an outside political solution by direct dialogue with the UN, UNCLOS and the ICJ. This doesn’t mean that this will achieve anything as most of these official bodies are totally controlled by the US and the G8. However once must not give up on this fight for the existence of a “Sovereign Palestinian State”.
It will require not only the support of the residents of Gaza and West Bank (Palestine) but also the support of the entire Palestinian Diaspora that now live in so many other countries both as refugees and as ex patriots’. They must unite and form strong political and legal groups to help their brother and sisters survive this gradual genocide imposed on them by the US and Israel. Only with an aggressive and constant barrage of political and legal actions will the current unbalanced scale of justice be rectified. Only when we see the scales of justice tipped in favour of Palestine we will see an end to this US/Israeli led aggression.
Remember that the forces against the existence of The State of Palestine are forever growing. They have the Christian and Jewish Zionist as a backdrop that have tremendous power; They have a web of sophisticated organisations that have much control both financially and politically. They have infiltrated into the heart of the major powers with the direct ability to pull strings in both the US Congress and the British Parliament. They have the additional backing of the CIA/Mossad who also have infiltrated into many of the current NGO’s. These NGO’s then skim off all available charitable donors money into the pockets of these unscrupulous entities and deprive those that are sick or in extremes of poverty the opportunity to recover from their respective dilemmas.
This is truly the axis of evil and we must all denounce all such actions and help Palestine in its hour of need as a matter of urgency.
