Wikileaks and The Tel Aviv Connection

Obama has behaved as anticipated by those who produced his presidency.


(TEMPE, Az.) - What is Tel Aviv to do now that it’s known Israelis and pro-Israelis ‘fixed’ the intelligence that induced the U.S. to war in Iraq?

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Con me consistently for six decades and the relationship is over, as is Israel’s credibility as a legitimate nation state.

Tel Aviv knows this. But what can the Zionist state do about it? Answer: Wikileaks.

Why now? Misdirection. Shine the spotlight on Washington to take it off Tel Aviv. That’s good old-fashioned psy-ops. And challenge the credibility of the U.S. That’s Wikileaks.

Any credible forensics would start by asking: to whose benefit? Then look to means, motive and opportunity plus the presence of stable nation-state intelligence inside the U.S.

Tepid Support will not Suffice

Obama has behaved as anticipated by those who produced his presidency. Anyone surprised at the lack of change in U.S. policy in the Middle East fails to grasp the power of the Israel lobby.

Did he hesitate to support their latest Israeli strategy for scuttling peace negotiations? Absent peace, the U.S. will continue to be the target of those outraged at America’s unflinching support for Israel’s thuggish behavior in pursuit of its expansionist goals.

Confirming the lobby’s influence, Netanyahu announced he would not agree to halt settlements on Palestinian land until Obama reduced to writing a $3 billion bribe.

Stranger than fiction Order Now

In return for a proposed 90-day freeze, what form of bribe will America provide? Twenty F-35 jets at $150 million each plus parts, maintenance, training and armaments.

That’s $231 million per week or $1,373,626 per hour. What will the U.S. receive in return? A temporary partial freeze on settlements. How many more times can this ruse work?

Israel has evaded a peace agreement since it drove Palestinians from their land in 1948 and seized more land in 1967 to shape today’s geopolitics.

Should Israel reach an agreement with the Palestinians, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton proposes a "comprehensive security agreement." At what cost no one knows. The U.S. Congress has already budgeted $30 billion for Israel over 10 years. This latest $3 billion is on top of that.

That doesn't include the cost to American credibility posed by an offer to veto U.N. recognition of Palestine as a state. And a pledge Never Again to pressure Israel on settlements. Plus the freeze omits East Jerusalem where Tel Aviv insists on moving ahead with new housing starts.

Other than Israel, who else is a credible candidate? Notice how quickly Israel’s role in the peace process vanished from the news. Now it’s Iran, Iran and more Iran. To whose benefit?

Tel Aviv knows that the phony intelligence on Iraq leads to those skilled at waging war “by way of deception”—the motto of the Israeli Mossad. Wikileaks are noteworthy for what’s missing: the absence of any material damaging to Israeli goals.

But still Tel Aviv faces an unprecedented peril: transparency. Americans know they were duped. And Israel rightly fears that Americans will soon realize by whom.

Timing Is Everything

By scheduling its latest incursion into Gaza between Christmas 2008 and the January 2009 Obama inaugural, Tel Aviv ensured only muted opposition during political down time in the U.S. Thus it came as no surprise to see an agent provocateur operation on Thanksgiving Day 2010 as Israel demolished a West Bank Mosque and a Palestinian village.

After seven hours of nonstop talks, Hillary Clinton praised Netanyahu as a "peacemaker." In return, he agreed only to "continue the process." Meanwhile, U.S. elections marked a major victory for Israel when incoming Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor, a Jewish Zionist, announced that the new majority would "serve as a check on the Obama administration."

The Israel lobby has good reason to gloat. Confirming ongoing duplicity, Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman proclaimed: "a permanent agreement is impossible."

Wikileaks’ release of confidential diplomatic cables provides Israel an opportunity to undermine U.S. relations worldwide while also inflicting lasting damage on U.S. interests in the Middle East. After this, what nation would trust the U.S. to maintain a confidence?

In October, Turkey asked that the U.S. not share intelligence with Israel. Now who dares share intelligence with the U.S.?

This may signal the beginning of the end for the Obama presidency his domestic policy failures are eclipsed by his failures in foreign policy.

This may also signal pre-staging for the 2012 presidential primary with a weakened Obama forced to name Clinton as his running mate or stepping aside so she can lead the ballot.

Her 2008 presidential campaign promised recognition of Israel as a “Jewish state” and promised an “undivided Jerusalem as the capital.” Tel Aviv was elated. A second Clinton presidency would ensure another victory for Israel—and no peace.

Without choosing a side in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict... I can safely say that this article presents fake and made up information as if they were proven facts.

Editor: No Julian it does not.  Mr. Gates is one of the most educated and brightest men I know.  You clearly have indeed chose sides.  The one you should pick is the side of humanity.

Joe December 6, 2010 11:45 am (Pacific time)

It is simply stunning that a ligitimate newspaper would give a forum to this kind of backwater, lowlife, inbread sickness. Does the Salem News assume that its readers are all tobacco chewing, nose-picking ignorant retards, like some of the comment here? Good lord!

Editor: I have no idea where your redneck attitude comes from, you know people say others criticize what they hate most in themselves, right?  Jeff Gates is a highly educated and experienced attorney who served in Vietnam and has more rich life experience and world travel under his belt than most people.  Try learning instead of just complaining; and also try not to be so foul..

While the idea that Jews are Arabs is true to a degree, zionists are by and large of white European and American stock. These people assumed the face and identity of Judaism after WWII. After they fed their Torah kin to the nazi death machine. They're userpers. Not true Jews at all. They're the same people Helen Thomas called out. And for damn good reason. x

Great coverage. Unbelievably accurate and courageous. Screw Israel; it's not my country. WikiLeaks is an OBVIOUS Zionist front. You'd have to be an idiot not to see that.

The irony is that Jews are Arabs but deny it. The first monotheism was created by Chinese TAO 6,500 years ago with his oft-repeated 'the eternal power in heaven' being greater than any temporal one. Pharaoh Akhenaton stole the idea for Egypt 2,500 years later. Moses stole the idea from Akhenaton 2,000 years after that. Early Jew popes boasted their creation of mythical Christ gave them great power and wealth. Islam is Judaism but for Abraham's children from slave wife Hager, but it dropped the 200+ racist Bible passages of Jews being 'Chosen'. Or back to Akhenatoism!! IS-RA-EL is Arab-Iranian-Egyptian acronym. IS= Egyptian Ferti;lity Goddess, RA= Egyptian Sun God and EL= Akkadian Earth God. Please do not use religion as an excuse for Israeli barbarism!

What you did not mention is that all the US-made bombs were delivered with US airplanes! Arab leaders have not served Arabs well; they need to know the facts. Since 1,900 All US Presidents, but JFK, were 'Christianist' converts from Judaism (Bushes) or have Jew blood in them, including Mr Obama. JFK stated he will change US M.E policy. He was killed by Jew L. Oswald who was shot dead INSIDE Dallas P.D by J. Rubinstein and covered up by Jews LBJ, Nixon, G. Ford, Warren and 12 tribes. Since 1972 when China replaced US puppet Taiwan as 5th UN Veto power, the vast majority of UN Vetoes were cast by US and almost all were to stop UN from condemning genocide-committing 'Chosen' Israel that recently used WMD-s in 06 Lebanon (cluster, nuclear-clad bunker buster bombs and civilian deaths) and 08 GAZA: white phosphorous, civilian killings and using children as human shields. When will the part Jew US Presidents be just to all, including American 'gentiles' (Jew word for all leprous others)? These US and Jew-made Arab tragedies have been going on for 38 years! When US supports an evil Israel, the US is equally evil!
