Israelis See Their Ownership of US Government in

- Chuck Hagel, President Obama’s Secretary of
Defense nominee, is in trouble. Why? Because he famously
said: “The Jewish lobby intimidates a lot of people up
here… I’m not an Israeli senator. I’m a United States
Friday, forty allegedly American Senators blocked Hagel’s
nomination with a filibuster. Their message was loud and
clear: “We are not United States Senators. We are Israeli
Alan Hart, former lead BBC Mideast correspondent, expressed
his disgust at the Israeli Senators’ vote on my radio show,
Truth Jihad Radio, this Friday: “This is treason. Serving a
foreign nation, rather than one’s own, is not just wrong -
it is treasonous.”
One of the traitors, Sen. Mike Lee (R-Israel), mentioned
Israel sixteen times while grilling Hagel. Sen. Ted Cruz
(R-Israel) mentioned Israel ten times. Altogether,
Republican Senators mentioned Israel 64 times during their
hostile cross-examination of Hagel. The war in Afghanistan -
supposedly America’s most pressing military issue - was only
mentioned four times.
Those forty Senators don’t care about US troops stuck in the
Afghan quagmire, the place empires go to die. They don’t
care about the US economy - which, like the US troops sent
to Middle Eastern quagmires, is bleeding and dying in wars
dictated by Israel, imposed on America by Israel… wars whose
only purpose is to serve the interests of Israel, at the
expense of the interests of the United States.
Chuck Hagel has pointed out that US interests and
Israeli interests don’t always coincide. That is a
massive understatement. The truth is that in today’s
world, US interests and Israeli interests are in stark
opposition to each other.
US, as Zbigniew Brzezinski suggests in his book The Grand
Chessboard, competes with Russia for influence in
central Eurasia; and it competes with the rising Asian
powers, China and India, for energy and mineral resources.
The natural US allies in this part of the world are the
Muslim nations. And the most important potential US ally in
the region is Iran. According to Brzezinski, the US ought to
do everything possible to establish good relations with
Iran. His implication is that the US ought to apologize for
its terrible past behavior towards Iran, stop bullying the
Iranians over Iran’s peaceful nuclear power program, end all
sanctions, and give Iran most favored nation status.
But that won’t happen - even though US geopolitical
interests dictate that it must.
Why not? Because Iran will never stop supporting the
Palestinians in their struggle against genocide in Occupied
Palestine. And that isn’t acceptable to Israel - which owns
and runs the US government.
The US is bullying Iran on behalf of Israel. In doing so, it
is undermining itself.
But nobody in the US is allowed to mention this. Expressing
even the slightest discomfort with Israeli ownership of
America, as Chuck Hagel has, is just not kosher.
US hostility towards Iran is only one example of a
self-destructive policy imposed on America by Israel. In
fact, the whole “war on terror” - in reality, a war on Islam
- is an Israeli fabrication.
Benjamin Netanyahu created the “war on terror” in 1979
at the Jerusalem Conference on International Terrorism (JCIT).
As scholar Nafeez Ahmed writes, the JCIT “established
the ideological foundations for the ‘War on Terror.’”
Participants at the conference included George H.W.
Bush, Richard Pipes, Sen. Henry M. Jackson, Shimon
Peres, and many other high-level Israeli and US
military, intelligence, and political personalities.
Netanyahu’s JCIT proposed to deceive the American
public, and the world, by wildly exaggerating the
dangers of “international terrorism” and even
manufacturing a nonexistent “terrorist threat” to
mobilize Western populations behind aggressive policies.
1996, Netanyahu, as Prime Minister of Israel, commissioned a
paper entitled “A Clean Break: A New Strategy for
Securing the Realm.” The paper’s lead author was
neoconservative Zionist extremist Richard Perle. Co-authors
included such neocon Israel-first fanatics as Douglas Feith
and David Wurmser - the same folks who would lead the War on
Terror propaganda campaign after 9/11.
The “Clean Break” document proposed redrawing the map
of the Middle East on behalf of Israel. Iraq would be
invaded and shattered into pieces, in accordance with
Israel’s Oded Yinon plan to balkanize the Middle East. Other
Middle Eastern countries would follow. And though the
“realm” that needed to be “secured” was Israel, it would
obviously be American troops who would be bleeding and
The same neocons who wrote the 1996 “Clean Break”
paper for Netanyahu produced an even more damning document
in September 2000: The infamous “Rebuilding America’s
Defenses” paper published by The Project for a New
American Century (PNAC), which openly called for a “New
Pearl Harbor.” Exactly one year later, PNAC’s avidly-desired
“New Pearl Harbor” arrived in the form of the 9/11
false-flag attack. The war on Islam for Israel went into
Today, more and more Americans are agreeing with Chuck Hagel:
It’s time for the US to stop being Israel’s slave. The
9/11-triggered wars-for-Israel are massively unpopular.
Voters sent powerful antiwar messages in the 2004, 2006,
2008, and 2012 elections. Mitt Romney, Netanyahu’s
hand-picked candidate, was soundly defeated, despite the
overwhelming support he received from Israel and its Zionist
The Israelis correctly see that their ownership of the US
government is in jeopardy. Their hysterical opposition to
Hagel is a sign of desperation.
When another Hagel vote happens next week, will the
treasonous Senators from Israel win again? Or will the
Senators from America prevail?
Regardless of whether Hagel is ultimately confirmed, the
battle between the Senators from Israel and the Senators
from America is educating the American people about who
really runs their country.
