Brzezinski: The Beginning of the End for Israel
By Daniel M Pourkesali

What a difference
3 weeks makes. You know the warmongers are in trouble when the
Sunni Prime Minister Fouad Siniora, the US-backed prime
minister, who until last week would not hesitate to appear in a
 with Condoleezza Rice tells her she is not welcome in Beirut
unless she demands and sees to an immediate ceasefire before
Hezbollah , a long political thorn in his side,
for its sacrifices to protect Lebanon.
Company in their unison support for a barbaric Israeli onslaught
on Lebanon have managed to completely turn the
proverbial political table around -- on themselves that is.
Their adoption of the absurd notion of Israel acting in
self-defense and continued insistence that there would be no
halt to the offensive unless Hezbollah fighters are driven from
the border has not only strengthened Hezbollah but will prove a
boon to the anti-Zionist resistance movement in Lebanon and
editor-in-chief of the journal of social and political thought
published by Blackwell/Oxford, and Global Services of the Los
Angeles Times Syndicate/Tribune in a
interview  with Zbigniew Brzezinski posed this
question to the former National Security Advisor to President
Carter: "Doesn't military superiority as a blunt instrument
lead to eternal enmity, not security?"
responded: "These neocon prescriptions, of which
has its equivalents, are fatal for America and ultimately for
Israel. They will totally turn the overwhelming
majority of the Middle East's population against the
United States. The lessons of Iraq speak for themselves. Eventually, if neo-con policies
continue to be pursued, the United
States will be expelled from the region and
that will be the beginning of the end for Israel as well".
He then asks:
"Don't the deaths of so many innocent civilians in Qana in the
south of Lebanon -- like the massacre in Haditha, Iraq, by
American troops -- send a message to Arabs and Iranians that the
"new Middle East" coming from the U.S. and Israel will amount to
occupation, carnage and bloodshed?" to which Brzezinski replies:
"This is precisely why neocon policies are recklessly dangerous
both to America and Israel". He then continues to explain that
"today it is becoming increasingly difficult to separate the
Israeli-Palestinian problem, the Iraq problem and Iran from each other. Neither the
United States nor Israel has the capacity to impose a unilateral
solution in the Middle East. There may
be people who deceive themselves into believing that".
around the Arab world has reacted by strongly supporting
Hezbollah and Lebanon" Rami Khouri wrote in a
Beirut's Daily Star article . "Washington
is feeling the pain of its own self-inflicted diplomatic
castration, as a consequence of siding with Israel".
and indiscriminate bombing of every village, road, bridge and
other infrastructure, which has so far killed over 900 people,
many of them children, and displaced another million has forged
a remarkable unity among both politicians as well as the entire
Lebanese population, whether Christian, Sunni or Shia. Those
who may have rejected Hezbollah at the outset of this crisis,
are now unanimously behind it.
The absurd neo-con invented
and Bush-Blair adopted policy of waging wars in order to achieve
peace will only serve to create more anti-US and anti-Israel
sentiment and strengthen the resolve and increase support for
those resisting the
axis of aggression.
