Netanyahu's Return? The Likud-Neoconservative Alliance for a "New Middle East"

Sensing the changing political winds, Netanyahu has quietly been preparing for the early general elections that much of Israel's political establishment expects to take place, although no official moves have been made.

Netanyahu: Israel's arch-hawk aiming for comeback; Aug 14, 2007

Here are some facts about the Likud party, Netanyahu, his character and associations, from this AP article and others:

1. His character is questionable for a leader, impulsive, unstable:
A loner with few close friends in the political establishment, he was once called by Sharon an "uptight and pressurable individual who panics and loses his wits."
2. The Likud party does not represent the typical thinking of Israel, by any party, but their own small radical cabal:
Likud that had dominated Israeli politics since its first election victory in 1977 managed to scrape together only 12 seats in the 120-member parliament.
3. His close association with the Neoconservatives who control the Executive Branch and the Pentagon in the U.S.--representing a secret alliance with a global and revolutionary agenda.
Ron Paul's speech on "what neoconservatives believe"(video), details their intellectual beliefs in violent revolution, imperialism, "end justifies the means", "lying sometimes necessary", and includes their close alliance with the Likud party in Israel.
4. Per Pat Buchanan's article in Jan. 2007, Who is Planning our Next War?, the Likudnik-Neoconservative alliance has a deliberate agenda for war-mongering for "a new middle east" (not for America's national defense), to which Netanyahu is a central figure:

According to UPI editor-at-large Arnaud De Borchgrave, Tira's line tracks the New Year's Day message of Likud superhawk "Bibi" Netanyahu, the former prime minister.

Said Netanyahu, Israel "must immediately launch an intense, international public relations front first and foremost on the U.S. The goal being to encourage President Bush to live up to specific [coerced] pledges he would not allow Iran to arm itself with nuclear weapons. We must make clear to the (U.S.) government, the Congress and the American public that a nuclear Iran is a threat to the U.S. and the entire world, not only Israel." [Ed. That is how the Iraq war was sold, by Cheney primarily.]

Israel's war, says Bibi, must be sold as America's war [see example linked to video].

We are thus forewarned. A propaganda campaign, using Israeli agents and their neocon auxiliaries and sympathizers, who stampeded us into war in Iraq, is being prepared to stampede us into war on Iran.

He further proves in this article how the Democrats will also be pressured to support the same policy. (And do recall William Kristol's recent "push" in a Brit Hume interview for Barrack Obama as a preferred Democratic candidate. The Israeli lobby controls both Republican and Democratic "lead" candidates).

Gen. Oded Tira, who headed up all Israeli artillery units, burst into print with this admonition:

"As an American air strike in Iran is essential for our existence, we must help (Bush) pave the way by lobbying the Democratic Party (which is conducting itself foolishly) and U.S. newspaper editors. We need to do this in order to turn the Iranian issue to a bipartisan one and unrelated to the Iraq failure."

"Bush lacks the political power to attack Iran," writes Tira. Thus, Israel and its U.S. lobbying arm "must turn to Hillary Clinton and other potential presidential candidates in the Democratic Party so that they publicly support immediate action by Bush against Iran."

The mainstream media is controlled by Zionist executives , which is why Ron Paul is treated by a VERY PARTIAL media in a manner that clearly has marks of ostracism instead of objective journalism (he opposes unjust war, the Fed Reserve, blind allegiance to Israel, the neoconservative agenda), although he answers them forthrightly, accepting their challenge. Thus we see the "establishment" Republicans and Democrats held captive by the Israeli lobby, who have the power to end their careers through media-political domination.

5. While the article states of Netanyahu, "he has few friends", one of his close friends is none other than Larry Silverstein, lease-holder of the WTC towers, who admitted "pulling" building 7 late on 9/11, and economically profited from 9/11, only purchasing the lease and insuring it against "acts of terrorism" a few months prior to that "catalyzing event", which ironically, justified the push for war per the Neocon stratagy outlined by the Project for New American Century. Silverstein's WTC towers did NOT suffer "collapse" but have all the consistent marks of "explosive destruction" and controlled demolition. This became the justification to implement the wars for a "new middle east". Now is that not interesting!

On the day of the 9-11 attacks, former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was asked what the attacks would mean for US-Israeli relations. His quick reply was: "It's very good…….Well, it's not good, but it will generate immediate sympathy (for Israel)". [See example in video here].

Explosive Demolition is self-evident in the WTC destruction, not "collapse".

6. One critic in an editorial summarizes the Israeli-Neoconservative scheme like this:

Bush never understood and still is blind to the fact that Sharon is interested in nuclear domination of the Middle East and a "collapsible Bantustan" for the Palestinians, which would eventually "evaporate" and wind up in a "Jordan is Palestine solution". There would be no Bantustan, no Abdullah peace plan, no nuclear weapons other than Israel's in the Middle East "till the end of time", enforced by America.

As a secondary matter, it would perhaps give the US more leverage over oil/oil prices, ie the Cheney vision. The Feith/ Cheney/Netanyahu/Perle/Woolsey group has been strategizing for a while about a wished for Caspian/Russian oil supply/oil pipeline system to replace OPEC. [Ed. The War in Afghanistan]

This scheme would satisfy the Perle/ Netanyahu/Feith/Kristol vision of a "permanent campaign" against Arabs, Muslims and Third World nations so that the world becomes an American empire, dominated by an Israel/neo- con wire-pulling group "till the end of time".

In other words, a "clash of civilizations", a global civil war, leading to neo-con domination of the American global empire and Israel, de facto, annexing every inch of the territories and the Golan and winding up with the option of "transfer" for the Palestinians.

We can see that the return of Netanyahu would definitely serve to expand war, the oppression of the Palestinians, and to continue the "Clash of Civilizations" toward a PAX AMERICANA world war policy, outlined by the neoconservatives in the Project for a New American Century, with a more provocative Israeli Prime Minister who will not be governed by others who desire peace or diplomacy as a rule for Israel. Netanyahu is more of a threat to peace in the middle east than Ahmadinijad of Iran ever could be because of the abused doctrine of "preemptive war" upon no credible, imminant threat except thru mere allegation and propaganda.

None of this can be justified as "national defense" of America under any imminent threat, which is why the "war on terrorism" scheme based upon the "catalyzing event" of 9/11 was executed to provide a pretext for.

Bear in mind what the Israeli newspaper Haaretz revealed:

The war in Iraq was conceived by 25 neoconservative intellectuals, most of them Jewish, who are pushing President Bush to change the course of history.

America's war policy is driven by a secretive Israeli-Neoconservative alliance (which has divided the Pentagon and CIA into factions, which is why the secretive Office of Special Plans was setup), who also dominate the media, have leverage in both parties, and control the "intelligence" elements as "terrorism experts", engage in active spying (recall Larry Franklin), are noted for lying (recall Libby), operate via Dick Cheney (who is pushing hard against Iran now), as we have pointed out in other articles previous. Netanyahu as PM would only increase their power, and entangle the U.S. in more unjust wars that violate the "just war" theory of Christianity as well as the Constitutional authority, where "war powers" are usurped by the Executive branch, whether republican or democrat.
