If you look at the recent, apparent disagreement between the US and Israel a few interesting points emerge. First assume that there really is a major point of disagreement or if you prefer the term disenchantment and that events like the release of new housing starts when Biden was there have caused a rift between the Israelis and the US.
You can add to that a growing sense that if the Israelis do continue on their present path toward Iran and Palestine then large numbers of US troops could be wiped out in a conflagration involving Israel and Iran and ultimately joined by other countries in the area. What has never happened to Israel is they have never really had their backs to the wall.
Instead they have always been able to successfully manipulate public opinion to their side and do what they liked. Apart from a very few setbacks Israel has continued on a path of domination and devastation in the area, that has gone on largely unchecked. What happens if they come to the conclusion that it is, “us or them” and there is no one to help their position. That is probably when they will detonate a nuclear device in the area.
There are enough total crazies in the government there to bring this about. A recent article by Atzmon highlights the extreme rightist elements in Israel who really do not care about the consequences of continuing with their present policies. In fact Netanyahu is at pains to stress that all they are doing is what they have done for decades. This is perverse reasoning at its worst.
All it means is that we do not care about anyone except ourselves and we will never care, the results are not a concern. There is no question at all that what they are doing is or maybe wrong, because all they are doing is a continuation of what everyone has accepted before.
The Atzmon article is available at link The following is an excerpt from the article and is quite illuminating, “It may be possible that the Americans have started to gather that there is no partner for peace in Israel. America clearly has had to shun its ‘kosher ally’. The American military and political elite already admitted this week that Israel is a strategic burden on the U.S. Seemingly, the only people who genuinely believe in the American Israel strategic bond are AIPAC and its list of obedient ‘Sabbath Congressmen Goyim’. But unfortunately, this is just one side of the story.
A deeper reading of recent events would suggest that the latest American Israeli rift is actually led by Netanyahu’s political partners. Interestingly enough, as much as America reveals growing disapproval of Israeli policy, the anti American attitude, demonstrated by Netanyahu’s allies at home, is overwhelming. It doesn’t take a genius to grasp that some of Netanyahu’s cabinet members are doing everything in their power to fire up a storm between Israel and its ‘closest ally’.”
What he is showing is the depth of the madness that prevails in Israel. It should never be forgotten is that with possibly 250 nuclear devices capable of being launched from or with missiles, ships and the like and if they are backed up against a wall the results will be frightening. Obama saying, if he did, that he was going to have dinner with Michelle is laughable when you consider the depth of conversation needed to turn a coming tide of massive slaughter in the area.
You should never try to go hand to hand with the Israelis in an arrogance fight. They hold all the cards and are prepared to play everyone of them.
Netanyahu has been there done that when it comes to mindless, crazed and fascist expansion into Palestine and making Jerusalem and Palestine a Jews only area. He has been and is very closely linked to all the expansionist policies.
What was started decades ago has no end other than a total take over as far as the Israelis are concerned. One thing that is really needed is for decent thinking and courageous Jews, and there are millions of them to reject the Zionist policies.
