  • Rudoren covers up Shaked's genocidal statements in 'NYT'
    • I was listening to her and also was trying to understand the confused answers and comments of the NPR host. At one time he said basically that Israel now had all the momentum since the threat from Iraq,Syria,Libya had melted away . He was asking if Israel would use the opportunity to force what it would like see happen in Palestine . There was talk of status quo and maintaining the grip but no mention of the dire situation in Palestine no pushback against current Israeli attempts to influence the political situation in Syria a nd Lebanon through support to terrorism or even the recent anti Obama anti Iran activities in US Congress .The respect and reverence were palpable in the air .

  • Netanyahu appoints Ayelet Shaked—who called for genocide of Palestinians—as Justice Minister in new government
    • thank you,its always "they are saying , they are saying "
      while the Zionsit are actually doing while . Followed by the neocons approving saying "Israel is doing the heavy lifting to save the West ". I think the message was neoconishly similar in one of Geller's ads.

    • "—the lawmaker asserted that “the entire Palestinian people is the enemy” and called for its destruction, “including its elderly and its women, its cities and its villages, its property and its infrastructure"
      There is something wrong in the free dispersal of the relevant speech across the public domain .Hoepfully next time when more sanctions are touted in letters to WSJ for "Death to Amareica and Death to Israel" or Pamela in her next move wants the world to know of creeping backdoor entry of the death cults of Islam to US, she should ask her new found Zionist God how to make an offerring and the WSJ should scatter the news of the availability of the latest opportunity .

  • Not a single Muslim is quoted in 'NYT' profile of Geller
    • Well ! Well! Now it makes all some sense. Rabbi warns of the possibility of the future threat from the non Jewish children . He sanctions killing if the threat were real ( now you have to the read the intention of the infant and the babies. And about the intention,one can seek guidance from Sam Harris in his communique between Chmosky and him ) . Geller tells that Brevik knew the future of these children ,what they would turn out to be . He decided to kill them . Rabbi ,you won . Did FBI or whatever they call it over there intercept any communication between the three? Any body language or posture or movement of eyebrows on the TV as signal? There are the real possibilities . That's why they had closed door military tribunal / court to try the terrorist in case the terror suspect sent some signals while it was being broadcast over the TV to the sleeper cells in the West.

    • Did NYT mention " The Koran should be banned as a “fascist book” alongside Mein Kampf because it urges Muslims to kill non-believers, says Dutch populist MP Geert Wilders."

      Geert Wilders were defending free speech in Texas along with his two other triplet - Spencer and Geller .

  • A response to the 'Washington Post' blogger who calls me an anti-Semite
    • When does the description of an event or narrating a known history become anti- of anything ? Is it anti Arab to say that Saudi is oppressing maid,intervening in neighboring countries,sending terrorists to Chechenya or Kashmir or Syria? Was it ant Arab to say Saddam gassed Kurds or attacked Kuwait ? If the ideas have any whatsoever effects on any country or any group of people . It had in Iraq . On the basis of these information Iraqi society was destroyed and further down the line in2003 again on the basis of description of some events, it was decimated . At least those ideas and distortion of those events could be classified as hate speech , ( equivalent to Nazi antisemitism ) of propaganda that encapsulated anti Arab attitude and paved way for social destruction of million of people.
      But why referring to the money machine that keeps anti Iran polemics in full force and high gear of readiness ,should be called Antisemitic when one hears everyday same ,sees same and be assured by the donors that what they expect from the politicians.It was no different in case of Iraq Lebanon,and Syria in recent memory . While these are discreet,same stuff goes against Palestinian on a regular basis . How are these any less poignant ,bitter poison pill than Nazi propaganda?

    • I see some mysterious subliminal message of parallelism in your effort to compare Rwanda ,Congo or another third world country to Israel. It was tried not that long ago by some political linguist ( neocons are political linguists . Politics influence the meanings and the meanings enable the politics. Distortion rather than straight lies bring the magic to life ) in his effort to generate some fellow feelings between India and Israel on the basis of newly minted ideas . Idea was that like India,Israel fought against colonial powers for independence and for freedom

    • Pamela Geller doesn't do a lot of things including asking for assaults against Muslim countries . She doesn't have to . Its called division of labor. Bernard levy ,for instance stands for her and regularly asks for assaults on Muslim countries . I am sure you have seen her picture with some nutty Zionist from Israel who does other stuff. CNN does her a favor by talking about respect of freedom of speech . She does her part for CNN by staying quiet about firing of Sanchez,Jim Clancy,Octavia Nasr ( how these characters cases different than the denial of services to the couple asking for a Homosexual wedding cake? . CNN can't pick and choose what its employees could say and couldnt say on the basis of race or ethnicities while it allows its anchors ,hosts,and guests dispense much worse opinion on Arabs and Muslim) . Pamella Geller doesn't have say to American Christian atheists,Hindus,and Jews " go and kill the Muslim" .she can get same thing done by saying " Muslim say or their religion says or Koran says to kill Chrstian,Jews,Hindus,and atheists first thing in the morning to the commuters on the train or buses to school or works" . Goebbles didn't spend a lot of time about how to kill and when to kill . But he made sure people don't get lost in his propaganda but got the essence . Germans got the essence of his polemics .
      Bush never said Saddam was involved in 911 or anthrax but he made sure that message came out of his daily show . Sometime the unspoken is what is spoken and the spoken gets relegated to the oblivion.

    • "This is the evidence of Prtocol of Zion like thinking"

      There is a sophisticated name for this type of reasoning.
      Since Protocol was a malicious forgery ( like WMD,Aluminium tube,Niger forgery,Atta meeting, and Sarin gas use by Syrian government as well as the estimats that periodically get out of the slow moving pen on IAEA report on Iran nuclear program) ,the evidences cited here have to be malicious figment of imagination,since the author can string the two thoughts together in the same sentence .
      It is childish concrete thinking .
      This is what is palmed off as journalistic wisdom courtesy to WaPo.

  • MSM's platform for Pamela Geller is equivalent to normalizing David Duke and Nazis
    • Why can’t Muslims laugh at Mohammed? David Goldman in link to atimes.com

      Sure David Duke will apppreciate the fretworking of the same pattern over and over again in multiple platforms and by multiple actors .

    • Racial intolernace to Blacks didn't come from one corner but from multiple sources- politics,churches,business communities,farmers,and from academic spaces and poisoned the minds .
      Islamophobia has got the same starts using same techniques both in the Europe and in the US.

      The historians commented bitterly on the
      extraordinary influence acquired by popular
      singers over young people, resulting in a
      decline in sexual morality. The ‘pop’ singers
      of Baghdad accompanied their erotic songs
      on the lute, an instrument resembling the
      modern guitar. In the second half of the
      tenth century, as a result, much obscene
      sexual language came increasingly into use,
      such as would not have been tolerated in an
      earlier age. Several khalifs issued orders
      banning ‘pop’ singers from the capital, but
      within a few years they always returned.
      An increase in the influence of women-

      In the tenth century, a similar
      tendency was observable in the Arab Empire,
      the women demanding admission to the
      professions hitherto monopolised by men.
      ‘What,’ wrote the contemporary historian,
      Ibn Bessam, ‘have the professions of clerk,
      tax-collector or preacher to do with women?
      These occupations have always been limited
      to men alone.’ Many women practised law,
      while others obtained posts as university
      professors. There was an agitation for the
      appointment of female judges, which,
      however, does not appear to have succeeded.

    • KraussMay 4, 2015 says--

      " Further, there have been large amounts of polls indicating that mainstream support for pretty extremist ideas are quite widespread in Muslim-majority countries. "

      This article goes a long way in explaining how and why -

      "The U.S. Encouragement of Fanatic Islamism in the Arab World

    • Sure. lets piss at all religions together . Let's start with the foundation of the State of Israel and then move to the settlemement activities , the retrun of Palestinianas ,and bankrolling of the occupation projects by secular atheist Europe and by the religious devout of America.
      Lets not send busload of Bibles to ME from Jordan in future "Iraq" sorry "Iran " war and ask Liberman or Netanhuu to shut up from using the word "Amalekite" to galvanize the warmongering Evangelcis or IDF or CUFI.

    • Iran Holocaust Conference was superficially covered by various media but truth was hard to come by . It was ridiculed and ignored unless it could be used to poke Iran .

      " "In Britain, Stephen Smith, chairman of the Holocaust memorial day trust, said the conference contrasted with a high awareness of the Holocaust among young Britons. "Three-quarters of young people know when the Holocaust took place and 84% have heard of Auschwitz. Knowledge is the first step to prevention. Denial is the first step to repetition," he said. " Guardian ( UK )

      Sure this is the real meat in the plate . That's why denial of Palestininan suffering,denial of Zionist warmongering against Iraq and denial Zionist of abuse of the power within western political systems should be see n in the same frame of arguments - --- it can repeat itself - look at Iran and look at periodic invasion of Gaza and Lebanon and Syria - one can see the danger of denial.But the Zionist won't appreciate the repeating the same argument for the same problem if it were not seen as issue of any concerns by the Zionist.

      And I also will refer to this quote ""Today people who claim to be against Nazism have a record of colonialism and racism," he said. "The objective for organising this conference is to create an atmosphere to raise various opinions about a historical issue. We are not seeking to deny or prove the Holocaust."

      Last quote was from the Foreign Minister of Iran.

    • Yes it didn't start tomorrow or this evening . There is a background
      Have you ever been to a building that is allowed to rot or forced to be used only by squatters ? Snake,roaches,and insects will take over and the people living there would be forced just to manage a bare existence .
      Have you been to a garden that was despoiled. and left after mass scale uprooting of all the rose plants and Cherry trees ? The garden will become infested with the weed and the grass .
      Afghanistan,Syria,Libya,and Iraq were those gardens . These gardens were destroyed by US
      America has the same potential if tomorrow's America is ruled by Evangelic,S Baptists,Graham family,Falwell descents,with Liberty University ,Boykin ,militias ,and politicians like Santorum,Huckabee,or Gomer (? ) giving the intellectual and military underpinnings combined with simultaneous destruction or marginalization of the Harvard,Yale,Berkley ,ACLU,Planned Parenthood,separation of church and state concept, suppression or limitation of 1st and 2 nd Amendment ,general disregard of science and removal of ethnic or historical studies that challenge white Chrstian version of the worldview from the academy.

    • Thank you for refocusing on that event from a different angle .

    • This is not about religion. This is abuse of religion,race,culture and of politics and of the interpretation of the freedom of speech , a practice that works by forcing,selectivity and exclusiveness by using the idea of public and private domain,gate keeping. limiting access,and fear mongering .
      Karl Marx understood this phenomena very well . His observation of the aimless,uncoordinated,angry responses to British oppression of Inidans that subsequently galvanized in mass rebellion was right on the money . It was not about religion .Hindus and Muslim were not rebelling against the forced practices of chewing on beef or bacon. The religion provided the flag of resistance against the East India company's ruthless exploitation and dislocation of the communities. Charles Dickens failed to see that way His progressivism was limited to Brtish Christian and European in that order of importance .
      Texas or Hedbo incident is far removed from the actual theater where these "East India " type of events are taking place . So an argument could be made : why here . But if some ideologues can think that he or she can emulate Boykin or some soldiers who were caught flushing Koran in toilet and in numerous acts motivated by angry anti Islamic attitudes ,by mainstreaming the same hatred and transplanting the same hatred here in US and Europe far removed from the actual battlefield ,then some lone fanatics,some deranged intellectually challenged ,some disconnected youth with decontextualized existence ,or some plain rogue double agents could engage in same kind of transport business .
      East India company should not have been asked by Dickens to understand the situation Neither should be Pamella by the mainstream.

    • Pa mela Geller has definitively mainstreamed the islamophobia and no one comes close excepting in general the Fox crews . Tele Islamophobes on Fox isn't thought that way simply for the fact that these helming anti Muslim gossips or marathon of diatribe have other jobs as well to perform ,wearing hats of anti Obama, anti Putin,anti Mexican,anti black,anti global warming - I can go on and on -Fox or WSJ are the worst among the media,but serves other purposes Pamela Geller has no other job description.

    • One of he problems that MSM doesn't want to acknowledge is the reality is that though Pamela Geller is doing something that neither Neocons nor Cheney did It is still serving the same purpose of creating a permanent mind set of hatred that could be exploited anytime militarily abroad against Muslim.
      Racism in this country owed its existence to slave trade which became possible only when the marriage between economic opportunities and the ideas of racial superiority was established . Pamela Geller is trying to establish that moral ,cultural,and religious superiorities . Steve King had lent his hand already in support .
      Neocons inspired columnists are silent since the rhetorics keep the country distracted from Israel and Israeli run projects . Free Speech is the sacred cow . But it is a sick cow wandering on the streets with no real nourishment but getting dependent on the fake fodder of dangerous racial discriminatory languages

    • Nuremberg trial passed death sentence to the guy who allowed a dyke to be broken in I think France inundating residential area and threatening people's lives.

    • Islamophobia was introduced in public domain by the Hasabar brigade using patsy and feckless figures . After Europe ,its now the tun of US.
      Accusation of Ahmednezad sponsoring Holocaust conference was spread in the same voice that also demanded more sanction and regime change . One player was suspended in Florida for using adulatory languages for Castro. Various figures on e board of President Carter run organization openly accused him of antisemitism and resigned from the board .
      Calling Israeli killer over Gaza assault cost a labor MP job and earned some jail time.
      Arun Ghandhi was forced to resign from US based Gandhi organization for speaking up of Israeli atrocities against Palestinian.
      Evangelics don't have any good feeling for Muslim but they won't start any calculated Islamophobic movement on their own. They don't have the courage and space to do so visibly and publicly . The Zionist has offered them and guided them every step of the way.

  • Annals of the lobby: Edwards is a bad girl, Zakaria posterizes Saban
    • "Strauss's chief motivation as a thinker derived from his desire to oppose the twin forces of positivism and historicism, which separately and in combination produce relativism in political thinking. Positivism is the theory that says only scientifically (empirically) supportable claims merit the label of truth; all claims of the sort we have come to call values (for example, judgments of what is morally and politically good, right, and just) are pronounced merely subjective preferences, which can never be rationally validated. Only facts and broader theoretical conceptions built upon facts can be rationally established and defended. Values are thus "subjective" and "relative" to their holders." link to press.uchicago.edu

      By first fighting against empiricism, Straussian then takes the case of the purity and validity of the "subjectivism" to personal/tribal level .In the process Straussians attach legitimacy to the perosnal preferences what should be globally accepted as correct and valid subjecticism.They clear the path to that localized ethnic claims. No one will be able to question. Questioning become "antismeitic" or "beyond mainstream ' or just plain ridiculous :beyond the pale. So my pain ,my holocaust, is worse than yours and they are unique. My history deserves different interpretation and is flagged with pure moral direction. My values and interests are unique,my ways to defend those values and interests are also valid and unique . This validity precludes any challenge . Not only that it is unique ,but can't be applied to the interests and concerns of other . Despite arguing for the relativities of ideas or experiences , Straussian often lapses into vicious attack mode by using the term "moral relativism" as perncious development , a threat to what they consider their sole preserve . Saban sees it that way. So does David Horowitz .
      Other have to prove but that proof shouldn't depend too much on empricism but on subjectivism !
      Occupation is not occupation.Transfer never took place. IDF is the most moral army.Occupation is a lie that again points the diabolical nature of the enemies of Israel . Education should open the door to understanding without bias and bring the facts to the table. Saban elevates the relativism and the subjectivism . Strauss isn't only a regular fixture in the psyche of the Republican zealot .He wields same influence on the democrats and on those who are obsessed with the certainty of the "moral clarity "of Israeli behaviors like Horowitz. is.

  • Israeli army can't stop patting itself on the back for helping Nepal victims
    • Third world countries are the victims of various versions of an Argentinian situation.
      link to lobelog.com
      Haiti ,or Nepal are victim of natural disaster for they don't have resources left usually due to the corruption ,IMF,WB,and the pressure of the individuals who profit personally from outside using the internal weakness of the countries,connection to the international financial organizations and sometimes using Uncle Sam's judicial System .
      Argentina could end up like Nepal when faced with new natural calamities . Sure Israel and also Singer will send some volunteers to rescue the victims from under the rubble . Still ,even then it would constitue a great act .

  • Obama's role model to journalists -- Dorothy Thompson -- turned against Zionism and was silenced
    • For every Dorothy Thomson born , 100 Con Coughlin ( Telegraph of UK )are created by the forcez of Zionism to match the donation to the world but to the opposite direction.

      Sharon lies in 2002 saying WMD has moved to Syria. It goes to OSP.Cheny says "I have seen the report" .Con Coughlin writes how the letter from Habbush to saddam showing the Uranium buying by Iraq from Niger and tranfer of WMD to Syria confirms the ,long -held suspicion in Bush camp was found by the provisional government after April 2003 .

      Suskind exposes how the letter was forged and backdated at the order of WH .Suskind is then accused of " gutter reporting " by WH .
      Bil O Reily gets excited with teh evidence of teh connection .

      NY Sun promotes the article from Con Coughlin. The lies travel giving succer to the corportae boards of teh WSJ,FOX,Telegraph,NY Sun and of a few more .
      Americans poll online to tell much how they dont trust Syria.

      ex -Saddam General Geroge Sada writes a book "Saddam's sercets " and comes to see Infohe of OK ,to testify to Senate Armed Committe and supports the lies of Conmen who all can trace the roots to Sharon of 2002 .

      The Chrsitain faith based charity organziation -Wolrd Comapssion- validates George Sada -"Do I believe this man? Yes," Mr. Law said. "It's been solid down the line and everything checked out."

      Mohammed Atta's Iraqi Connection By: Con Coughlin
      London Telegraph | Monday, December 15, 2003

    • Helen Thomas, Scott Ritter,Sanchez,Joe Sorbon, and Octavia Nasser suffered same fate .So did Jim Clancy.
      Robert Frisk had it much worse . He was threatened . He was called terrorist supprter by Harvard professor by UCLA faculty,WSJ reporter and threatened by Hollywood actor. link to independent.co.uk
      So was Jennifer Lowenstein and Suzanne Goldberg . Their crimes were to raise the point that was raised by US and UK intelligence and even by 911 commission later .( that the Arab grievances lie in the foreign policies and military activities of US / Israel in the ME)

  • Mark Shields blasts Adelson for 'making foreign policy for the United States'
    • Foreign policy regarding ME was becoming the sole AIPAC preserve by the middle of Clinton adm. Perle and Wurmser were sharing the plans on ME in an article in Forward in 1998 touting Ahmed Clalabi,extended no fly zone ,no drive zone and continued legislative ( " pro Israeli" ) pressure on Iran . They promised of receiving overwhelming support to American forces as liberator from the persecuted of Iran,Syria and Iraq ( Beyond Regime Changre by Dandy Tolan and Jason Felch in LATimes Dec 1,2002) for restoring honor to the persecuted.
      One of the neocon light wrote " one of the first thing I realized after visiting Iraqafter US invasion was the very fact that Iraqis didn't liberate themselves ,but had to be liberated by Americans was a source of humiliation to them. It's one reason they never threw flowers" that was Tom Friedman quoted by Robert Fantina in The Current Fairy Tale
      IRAQ and thecNew York Times

      The neocons still want regime change,still are making ME policies and still installing hokum and illusion to American mind . Later the same clan member would claim just the reverse! By that time damage is done and the next move will be offered again with straight face.

    • Will David find the money donated to AlQuids as legitimate since it would be ideological? In reality Adelson is much worse . He has selected Iran as the target that needs to be bombed for his money.
      Was Saddam just ideological when he was providing relief to the family of the suicide bombers? At least he didn't say that the family who would send their sons to bombing campaign would get his money.

  • AIPAC-backed legislation targeting BDS movement advances in Congress
    • Last time someone called this AIPAC and Kohr on the carpet was Rep MCollum ( D -Minn.) She is verily needed ( Enough is Enough .People have had it up here with The Lobby . http://www.antiwar.com May 26 2006) Hollings and Moran and Barr are also missed sorely . These people challenged and confronted the agenda of AIPAC out in the open .

    • Israel ahs succeeded beyond it's wetest dreams in confusing American . It has no reason to pause and consider that failure in passing any bill through Congress/senate is a possibility .
      It has inserted requirements in school text book, it has silenced churches, it has forced demonic silence over it's continued brutalities in academia and has got the media to spin its story ,it has provided the talking points and the details to the media and the Congress/Senate to attain what it is in best interest ,it has written position papers on the situation of ME and also provided Israeli centric solution ,it has thrown out anybody with Arabic and Muslim names from cabinet appointments ,it has penned various accountability acts and showered the country with Islamophobia . It has provided crucial support to Sisi of Egypt, Jihadist threatening ME, has managed to attack the neighbors with impunities and given war and more sanctions as only play in town to deal with Syria , Iran and Sudan.

      Dulles, Senator Fulbright,and Admiral Moorer in 50s,60s,and 70s respectively warned of the dangers from Israel to US. Those dangers have become perversely the very desired outcomes US seeks now ,thanks to the pressure and propaganda by Israel.

  • Accusations of anti-Semitism roil Stanford campus as student coalition denies discrimination charges
    • Perle and Feith coauthored a position paper for Likud advising Israeli government to scrap Oslo,re occupy territories and crush Arafat during Clinton years .
      Only if the media had shown some interest to focus on and derail their attempts to come near Pentagon ,WH,or forums on Israel- Palestine issues, things could have been different . It would have exposed other mole and sleeper cells planning and plotting same fates for millions .
      ( Re- http://www.antiwar.com Micheal Lind 4/10/03)
      It is extremely important to understand the motive of the people with this mindset - why they are seeking government or policy framing positions. We know why Chuck Schumer and Kirk decided .

    • Preciselyfor the fear that the mere knowledge of Middle East based on facts and research will influence the decisions of the Arab expert in the State Department, Kristol wanted ( and succeeded as claimed by him) no " Arabist" instead he put the Zionist .
      It gets much worse more one delves into. The duo Ross and Indyk demanded and got their whishes that no Arab or Muslim would be allowed to steer the American side in any Arab Israel negotiations.
      These were absolutely racial and prejudiced in nature .
      The current fracas don't come close to these examples .
      The moaning and groaning of discrimination and the portrayal of this incident by the media as some kind of antisemitism will send chill down any kind background check by any tax paying body . It is reasonable to ask th view of the obstetrician on abortion and birth control and how they would stick to the ethics and morals that are expected by the Obstercian Soviety or body from any of its trainee or practioner . If the views are against the discipline and won't be modified or altered while delivering the duties as laid down in the position paper ,then he or she should look for different job or training slot . The rest of the world isn't here to be a mouthpiece of the views of this lady . Go and create one if you in dire emotional need to propagate your views . To prevent such an outcome ,the body needs to hear what is her position . Otherwise she could claim " I was not told I couldn't practice my political belief while at work "

    • So. It is theoretically possible to get these students accused of antisemitism hauled up before Canadian ;;French or German courts

  • In defense of Cornel West's prophetic voice
    • Laurence Summer sees antisemitism in divestment movement. He engineered financial crisis in Russia and in US by supplying his 2 cents . His 2 cents from Harvard carried a lot of weight . It is expected that person like Tom Friedman would find the remarks made by Summer very relevant to understanding Arab Stret problem

    • When " Nightline " producer was asked why Chomsky was never featured on this show he replied " He lacks conncision" (link to counterpunch.org)

      Cornell West has faced same problem . He has endured posibly more for the skin color .

  • Defending the Iran nuclear deal from Israel and its supporters
    • It was in 2006 .Rupert Murdoch's advisor Irwin Stelzer promoted the cause of the firing of Jack Starw .according to him Mr Straw was fired for being too influenced by Muslim opinion of the town( Blackburn UK)
      John Williams opined that these forces must have relied on an extreme mental gymnastics to conceive that it would be a bad idea to listen to the constituencies . Press Secretary to foreign office of UK also noticed how Kristol had been advocating the idea that the Iraninans would welcome a military attack on their country as a cue to rise up ( John Williams .Wednesday. August 9 , 2006 Guardian ( UK )
      Jack called the idea of nuclear strike against Iran,as " nuts"

      It is not surprising given the accolades and recognitions Murdoch has received from the Zionist that he can't forget his duties to always accomplish what Zionist want from him ,even if that includes the creation of the most preposterous ideas, inversion of the concept of democracy ,and tacitly endorsing a nuclear mushroom cloud over the millions .
      No one would know why Straw was fired. But the neocons by invoking this possibility would have succeeded in installing fear in the psyche of any leader anywhere in the world who would dare to listen to the " Muslim" or more certainly to any " anti Zionist " camp . Irwin Stelzer and the like minded famous movers and shakers knew they were being immoral arrogant and utterly wrong but they must have looked at the windfall ,must have salivated at the hidden prize and must have recognized again the power of concerted well timed lying .
      And why not if Hamas could be ostracized why not Jack Straw for listening to the same universal reality : listening to the constituency .

    • Trish Schuh wrote a column in Counterpunch: Swiftboat vets march to Bush's drum on Iran - naming such luminaries as Jerome Corsica,his Iran Freedom Foundation,AIPAC ,and even the Israel's Student Solidarity Movement ,The Jewish Agencyn,and Mossad's Uzi Arad urging in 2005 for more sanction,destabilization from within,support to MEK and th motley collection of monarchist who were supposed to represent Iran, he delved into the broader question of the support Corsi was getting from .
      Corsi despite past fulsome calumny against Islam ,Koran,and Muslim was repositioning himself as an admirer of Muslim' prophet to showcase his Iran Freedom Walk .
      We don't hear much from him . Neither we hear from the Israel's Student if they are staging or will be protest against Iranian embassies worldwideb.
      The swift boating has now been been prepared and incoroprated as the Republican manifesto by Kristol Adelson group.

    • The best way to find out the double-speak of Israelis is to read and appreciate the nuances in the topic not under discussion and refer to those findings.
      link to mondoweiss.net
      Here Israel openly talks of the reality of the settlement,dependence on the settlement( for the Start up Country depending on the agriculture of WB ) and exploitation . This article also proves that Israeli court doesn't try to answer the issue of occupation or boycott but simply issues decrees that would automatically punish or imprison the person or the group drawing at to the occupation and the exploitation
      Then there are subsidies and one way trade advantages.

    • A Calculated Risk: The US decision to Recognize Israel- by Evan Wilson

      FDR " I learned more about the whole problem the Moslem problem,the Jewish Problem by talking to Ibn Saud for five minutes than I could have learned in the exchange of two or three dozen letters"

    • It would be an understatement to say the least that Israel left Gaza in peace unless the quiet night of the prison camp or of th grave yard had become universal standard .

    • Lying comes so easily to Zionist . Suspecting other of lying also comes very easily. Looking at the mirror very morning and seeing Ben Guiron these Zionist warn the world that Iran will deceive them. Projecting the same thought process ,they even refer to the Taqia ( or some similar name justifying religious approval of lying for the sake of religious gains) guiding Iranian game plan.
      If Golda Meir were around today,she would have said " we won't forgive Iranians for forcing us to suspect them " .

      BTW Lyndon Johmson was allowing a beautiful Israeli spy to stay in WH while the 1967 war was breaking out

    • Israel knew Iraq had no WMD but withheld the information from US and had no capacity to launch swift attack ( Yossi Sarid ,member of foreign affairs and defense committee, Ehud Yaton another member ,) also echoed by MP,Roman Bronfan. The Guardian 4 th Feb 2004 ( AP) Not only holding off the fact but Efraim Halevy confirmed that Iraq had reconstituted the abilities to build WMD

      But Netanyahu gave an alarming presentation to US Congress in 2002 .
      Same Netanyahu gave again same presentation to Congress this time on Iran.
      GOP hopefuls believe him not out of trust or presence or absence of truth . It is pure corruption and sense of hubris : Who is going to stop us - that psychological conviction is also based on the possession of unsurpassed unequal power US possess militarily . They can say and do against a weak country whatever they want .
      This is where the world stands today .

    • WSJ is at it again .This time Daniel Henninger on page A 11 :The Democrtas Own Iran.

      It is little more time consuming to expose the distortions but distortions and easy to be cast into plausible ,beleivable ideas that can parlay more weight to the existing impression.

      He marches as if he were re-enacting the thought version of the "cakewalk" , from 52 hostages, from earnest honest like Schumer ,Menendez,Tim Kiane,Coons,and from the spell that has been cast on American voters to Obam's obsession with Iran, charges of undue influences of Jewish money on Congress/Senate and then to Putin adding S-300 fuel to the cauldron while Iran marching across ME.
      lets untangle -
      1- 52 hostages didn't die in the sea
      2 Schumner and Menendez should some time share the their open sercets with Henninger
      3 Henninger should learn how to do basic math to find out what the voters say about the deal
      4 Before unmasking Obam's obsession he should familiarize himself with the Israeli obsession of the media and the political leaders , with the obsession of Netnahu/Brak/Liberman/Bennent/Steininz of Iran and the dollar denominated obsession of Sheldon,Singer,Saban and ,Murovchz (or what ever the name is of this real estae guy from Florida) with the destruction of Iran.
      5 Long before Iran started marching across ME, there were other forces that had adorned the landscape- Israel marching frequently across Gaza,Lebanon,and across Syria, Nato marching across Libya and still trying to enetr Syria,and the Isreal-sauid -US/UK supported IS across Iraq,Yemen,and Syria-and continue to do so.

      6 Long before Putin added to the arms race and long before any effects on Iran's armoury could be seen ,US and West had already initiated the free transfer of high tech costly arms to Israel and had sold huge offensive stockpiles of arms to the Saudis .

In same WSJ( 22nd April 2015 ) article on page A 27 ,he reminds the world how this rapproachment will exacerbate tension between Sunni and Shia since Qatar also supports Hamas ! For some inexplicable reason he doesnt inform the readers that US should look again at Qatar for supporting Hamas !

      4 The Chief Rabbi had been asked by presenter Evans Davis for his reaction to the situation in Gaza immediately after delivering the daily Thought for the Day on Radio 4's Today.

      He initially responded: "I think it's got to do with Iran, actually", before being told he was live on air.

      He quickly responded by making a plea for peace saying: "A continued prayer for peace is needed, not only in Gaza but the whole region".

      Washington Post political correspondent David Broder has kind words for President Barack Obama in in his opinion column Sunday, arguing that it isn’t the president’s fault the economy is stuck in reverse.

      But the four-decade-plus veteran of Washington politics offers a startling solution to the president’s political and economic woes: March off to war with Iran.

      2 The main strategic priority for the US is not the Islamic State but Iran, a former speechwriter for George W. Bush said on Tuesday.

      Speaking about the crisis in Syria on BBC’s Newsnight, David Frum accused Washington of making “too much of a priority out of the Islamic State”, adding that the militants, who currently control swathes of land across Iraq and Syria, are not the West’s most important strategic threat in the region.

      "That is Iran," said Frum, who currently writes for The Atlantic. “Because of our [America’s] focus on the Islamic State… the Obama administration has been leading us into a de facto partnership with Iran.” link to huffingtonpost.co.uk

      Money,lot of money will force the nature of the campaign ad . Democrat will be forced to alter and adjust the message. This view expressed in campaign will be used by neocons to remind American voters what was promised is not being kept .What it does is it prevents normalization of relation between Arab, and US and between US and Iran. The relation is purely political and military and often condescendingly antagonistic.
      Globalist may one 2 state but that 2 state will be defined by Israel .Globalist may one business with Russia and Iran but Israel can prevent it by focussing on the continued immediate return on each and every political investment it makes . This one way gravy train has worked well for 60 yrs for Israel.

Globalist will pay lip service as it has done in the past to US interest .

  • A lesson from the New York Times on how to mislead with numbers
    • This is one of the great achievement of the Zionist . Much more than manipulating ,it actually creates data and suppresses data to suit its interest particularly in creating the impression that there are.,there has been and will likely continue to be so same : the massive bipartisan grassroot support for Zionism ( Israel) transcending color,religion,ethnicity,and geography ,
      Americans by big margin support negotiations with Iran. The American actually never disliked the idea of reaching to any foe . Even the idea of attacking Iraq was not high until mid 2002 . Then the game of shaping the argument and increasing the support for war started
      Today Iran shows same trajectory
      . link to quinnipiac.edu Despite the support their are undercurrents of the activities to torpedo the negotiation and attack Iran.
      In 2007 AIPAC delegates were salivating at the prospect of a war against Iran: " We wil do to Iran what we did to Saddam " ( Salon.com)
      That was th time Netanyahu,Levy,and American lawmakers openly were discussing in the same AIPAC summit of the me hanism that were being brought in place to squeeze Iran through financial sanction and divestment.
      By 2007 Americans were regretting of going to Iraq. It didn't bother the Zionist and didn't evoke a reaction from the media that a replay was in the offing .

Now it is Islam and Muslim.

  • Kristol frets that he walked into Obama's 'trap,' and Rubio says he'll demand Iran recognize 'Israel's right to exist'

      Kristol ,Netanhu,Steinitz,former IAEA deputy former UN envoy or domestic presidential hopefuls from GOP simply don't want any deal.
      Their collectively agreed refrain is - how can you trust Iran.
      When faced with reality,they make a dash for escape to fantasy held with religious conviction that doesn't ask for use of brain but depends on faith . It is like medieval religious order is asking its flock not to talk to the other side . It is like Stalinist communist asking the citizen not to get near to any understanding of the people on the other side of the Wall.
      It is reminiscent of an earlier known behavioral pattern of the Israeli firster. Zionism's approach to the possibilities of US reaching out to PLO in 1980 was marked with overt and covert threat,fear mongering,and trustworthiness of the PLO.

    • America has become the refuge of the stupidities. The cabal - instilled fear adds to the impotence of accepting any lie,any distortion,and conspiracy .
      Kristol is asking to kill the deal . Doesn't offer for the murder lover doesn't have any reason to offer.
      But he openly expresses his modus operandi knowing that the sheeple will not dare to notice his conspiracy- " inducing Iranian to walk away"

      Again the conspiracy theory raises it's head to be pooh poohed by Zionist. But isn't that what happening. Israel doesn't want Iran become a diplomatic partner . It doesn't want any meeting or deal . Its supporters pour money on those who can keep it that way. Those money are never allowed to be interpreted in those words ,cant and phrases to American voters . The reservations of the bought and paid legislators are then echoed ,rehashed,re emphasized and presented as valid concern of the constituencies . Facing certain uncertainty ,the court jester suggest to make the deal bad enough so that Iran doesn't take it. The clown knows that it is bad enough for Iran but since his master doesn't want any deal ,he has to devise or support some stupidest non sequitur like " Israel's right to exist" or promote the conversation to the worst kind of fanciful demand .

    • Self interest or survival instinct is driving the new Gulf and the Saudi Royal. Over last 60 yrs or so,Arabs have changed significantly . From not accepting to Israel to allowing Israel to become the arbiter ,the protector and even the spokesman . Amazing feat for Israel. In between Arabs have made peace here and there,have established trade ,have secured tacit understanding and have floated peace formula . Israel has retreated tactically on certain occasions . But it hasnt forgot its prizes that it plans to reconquer - S lebanon, WB, even Sinai .It has made those noises at various times .It also plans to engage the royal courts and gain the access to the military,intelligence,resources and finances . of Gulf and Saudi. Morocco and Jordan are already beholden to the whims of Israel.

      But how does and why Saudi end up in this blind alley?
      The changes in Saudi were apparent after 2006 Israel-Lebanon-Gaza war. Since then it has become hostile to resistance to Israel. Was it under fear? Was it coercion ? Was it blackmail? Was it the fear of being blown away with the underlying tension and chaos reaching its capital?
      Shia fear itself does not explain it. Though the Shia factor has been repeatedly used by the same figures who have offered previous false and sinister and purpose driven explanations for terrorism,WMD existence,pursuit of Nuclear activities by Syria,Iran and about the rage of Arab street . They have popularized a myth : 7th century Shia-Sunni schism .

      Most likely the explanations are the behind the scene blackmail,threat,and exposure and of threat of (false ) accusation by Israel.

      The "Arabist" that Kristol got rid of is coming back or being allowed back by Israel after "kosherization"

      and the slow surreptitious dependence on Israel for survival.

      It is even touching the mob mentality that is so pervasive in some non Arab muslim countries with Sunni population like Pakistan.

      The killings of Hamas leader in Gulf few years ago ,the serenade coming out of Doha's new intellectual hub financed by Saban ,elevating of Shia as enemy above the Jews by the Saudi clerics ,trade deal and periodic pounding of Hamas against the collective silence of Arab countries point to sinister merger between two politically corrupted religious ideologies (Zionsm and new Sunnism) . Both Judaism and Islam are dying chaperoned by Saudi and Israel.

      Will this lead to the emergence of muslim variant of Evangelical Christianity? Will it lead to preeminence of certain Hadith or reinterpretation of sudden new found-Hadith over Koran? The book of revelation and ideas of Dispensionalism /Millennialism have been selectively nurtured by various actors over last 100 years .It also arose out of the imperial disintegration and chaos and breakdown of society under violence in Europe and eventually became the main message of Christianity in US.It now has spread to Latin America,Africa, and SE Asia.

      1 G Bush increased his votes enormously and so did the GOP in contemporary Congressional election among the Jewish voters .
      The claims of the loyalty to the ideals of progressive democratic parties agenda is pure fiction and is the front ,like the shell company in trade and commerce .When the self interest ( even illegal interests) rise,so does the desertion.
      2 More localized and personal is the nature of the personal betrayal of Obama- a man who has sustained silence over three brutal attacks on Gaza during his tenure , a man who has ignored settlements ,a man who has supplied with free arms and munitions of 40 billions dollars worth as compensation to the sale of arms to Saudi , a man who has vetoed UN resolution, a man who has done the biddings ( Israel) in Libya,Egypt and almost did in Syria is still an object of contempt,racial comments,and a persona non grata .

      The neocons push Americans down the slope few inches at a time and ask for more every time certain threshold of no return is reached . 1991 Gulf war started with demand by the Zionist that a threat of invasion would stop and reverse Saddam. Once that was achieved ,neocons started reminding America that its prestige would suffer unless Iraq was attacked and defanged.
      Today the neocons are making similar arguments and slowly pushing US towards more confrontation. Along the way , the neocons are using the same play book with rosy assurances of definite results . The neocons are also blithely repudiating their past views and counsel to add more stringer demands on Iran.

    • "Senator Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, has criticized the Iran talks from the start. He vehemently opposed the November 2013 interim agreement that partially rolled back Iran’s nuclear enrichment and lifted some superficial economic sanctions while the parties negotiated.

      The minor sanctions relief, Graham said at the time, sent “exactly the wrong signal” because “you can’t trust the Iranians.” The temporary arrangement “leaves in place one of the most sophisticated enrichment programs around.” It was a bad deal that would enable, instead of block, Iran’s path to the bomb.

      But last week, Graham sung a different tune about the interim agreement. In arguing against the framework deal announced this month, he advocated “keeping the interim deal in place that's been fairly successful” and using it as the basis for imposing a more restrictive arrangement on Iran.

      That’s quite a strategy—to oppose every new advance in the diplomatic negotiations until a further step is achieved, and then insist on keeping in place what he previously opposed."

Activity must be limited to a plausible civilian program subject to comprehensive monitoring as required by the Non-Proliferation Treaty.”

      That prescription is impressively consistent with what the P5+1 and Iran announced this month. Why does Kissinger and Shultz’s opinion seem to have changed now that their 2013 formula has come to fruition?

      Simple: If they move the goal posts, peaceful diplomacy can never score."

    • "I’m confident, by the way, that presumptive candidate Hilary Clinton is not thanking the president for playing into the hands of the cynical Republican efforts to peel away Jewish support from the Democratic Party. And if President Obama keeps up the grandstanding then I predict that despite their dislike of Netanyahu, many American Jews will be drawn towards supporting a socially moderate Republican whom they can trust to defend Israel.

      As President Obama would be the first to say, you don’t play politics when it comes to national security. And, I might add, you don’t accuse your friends when you are guilty of sins yourself.

      Over the last six years our president has worked with controversial figures such as Cuba’s Raul Castro, Russia’s Vladimir Putin and Afghanistan’s Hamid Karzai.

      "Spying under pressure
      The latest story to hit the press, of Israel spying on the Iran negotiations, has a similar element of unfairness.

      Whether the Israelis spied on the negotiations or not is one issue. Israeli officials have denied that this took place.

      I confess, however, that I would probably do so if I felt that my existential existence was threatened. America’s National Security Agency (NSA,) after all, spied on all our allies when our country’s very existence was not threatened.

      The Obama administration’s complaint is that the Israelis shared what they discovered with other parties – with the Republicans, countries involved in the negotiations and, presumably, anyone else who might be concerned about a deal with Iran. They have presented no evidence that the Israelis have done this.

      But you have to ask yourself these questions: what would you do if you were deeply impacted by the outcome of a negotiation, yet excluded from participating in the discussion? What would you do if you had in front of you an American president who was not talking to you, yet seemed to be ready to impose an outcome that might give your greatest enemies the means to destroy you? What would you do if you had a president who was ready to agree to a settlement but did not have to live with its consequences because he won’t be president in ten years? What would you do then if you discovered something that might sabotage that settlement? I suspect you might publicize whatever you thought might help you.

      Netanyahu is obviously deeply frustrated by the fact that the negotiations are taking place and Israel is not a participant. He has to put his country’s security in the hands of governments (think France, Germany and the United Kingdom) whose countries are experiencing a growth in anti-Semitism, have historically criticized Israel and are often sympathetic to the Palestinian cause. Netanyahu would prefer a rock-solid advocate on his side and has been busy sending Israeli government representatives to these capitals in an effort to harden their position.

      Whether he is right or wrong, Netanyahu sees the fate of his country’s future in the balance. But while Obama makes reassuring noises to everyone else, he now very publicly snubs the leadership of the very country most at risk. He would rather do this than diplomatically – and effectively – reassure Israelis and America’s Jews, among his staunchest supporters, that his diplomatic support for Israel at the UN is not wavering.

Over the past several years, as both Saudi Arabia and Israel have identified Iran and the so-called “Shiite crescent” as their principal enemies, this once-unthinkable alliance has become possible – and the Saudis, as they are wont to do, may have thrown lots of money into the deal.

      "“Diplomacy has failed,” Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., told AIPAC, “Iran is on the verge of becoming nuclear and we cannot afford that.”

      “We have to contemplate the final option,” said Sen. Evan Bayh, D-Ind., “the use of force to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon.”

      War is a “terrible thing,” said Sen. Lindsay Graham, R-S.C., but “sometimes it is better to go to war than to allow the Holocaust to develop a second time.”

      Graham then describes the war we Americans should fight:

      “If military force is ever employed, it should be done in a decisive fashion. The Iran government’s ability to wage conventional war against its neighbors and our troops in the region should not exist. They should not have one plane that can fly or one ship that can float.”

      Danielle Pletka of the American Enterprise Institute, Neocon Central, writes, “The only questions remaining, one Washington politico tells me, are who starts it, and how it ends.”

      The meeting of the security cabinet was called on short notice on April 3, a few hours before the Passover seder.

It might be enough not to invade Syria but just to have an American or UN blockade so that no one can ship weapons to it,’ Steinitz adds"

      Each of these concerns could be debunked by citing the histories of Iranian nuclear pathway,by referring back to the insults pelted at Obama,Kerry,and to the defense chiefs by Israel over last 6 yrs,by reminding the shocked reactions of the rest of the world to the conducts of Israel ,by the overwhelming support to this ( one sided accord that benefits US few by order of the magnitude of the few degrees more than it does to Iran) among the Americans, and by reminding these lawmakers that their loyalties,concerns,and devotion should be spent for the interest of US and not for Israel and never be spent for Israel when it hurts American interests.

The same play book is being brandished openly .

      tell the American public why Americans and you trust Israel when the national interests of America start diverging from that of Israel , tell the constituencies that chances are Americans don't know compared to what the Israeli know what is good,safe,desirable and honorable for America.

Looking back,England might have wondered how future would have been for the empire had it not got entangled with the Balfoursn obfuscation.
      Without Zionist insistence and prod dings,the WW1 wouldn't have continued and Czar would have remained and Hitler wouldn't have arisen .

    • Yes . I noticed that also. May be that's the only value left among the rest of us to revolt against Zionism . That is the ethnocentric national interest . When will Americans claim that ? When will Americans learn what differentiates them from the noxious Zionism. When will Americans start valuing their lives ,futures,and safety ? When will they address their own interests and when will they stop sacrificing the future of their sons and daughters and confront the toxic ,noxious,erosive, corrupting influence of the Zionist ? it is long overdue to correct it,take the control back, to protect the economic prospect of the coming generations . May be all we need is to admit our own interests based on nationality .

  • Journalists Goldberg and Gordon once again try to 'drag us into a war'
    • Atlantic magazine has some excellent authors and reporters . But if it really wanted to balance the presence of person like JG it should ask the IS or AlQuida to loan one . Balancing of the neocon can be attained solely by allowing the fanatics to pen equally dumb dangerous views.

    • Question should be what will force saner ( honest and just) line of thinking of these scribes? Does it has to be the threat of application of the law against incitement? Does it has to be the memory of Nuremberg?

  • What we talk about when we talk about ISIS
    • Blaming Islam is like blaming the Democracy for the intentions,plannings,and conducts and the results of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. In the "name of the democracy" Bush conducted the wars after initial reasons offered, had been exposed to be contrived .
      It was in parallel to Saddam who "in the name of Islam" tried to cement the cohesiveness ,consolidate his reign,and infuse a sense of ethno- religious patriotism after his tribal clan based domestic and Pan Arab based foreign policy had come to an abyss of black hole

  • New DC bus ad takes on the special relationship on eve of Netanyahu’s address to Congress
  • Al Jazeera publishes leaked intelligence files showing Netanyahu lied about Iranian nuclear threat
    • Egypt has its own" mushroom cloud moment in 45 minutes" . It doesn't have the power and it is not occupied by 25 neocons . If it had ,it could have launched a blitzkrieg all over the enemy map. May be Ynet should reframe it and shine the light on those morons who believe Iran is about to build a nuke and Hamas about to drown Israel in the sea.

  • Israel's new Asian allies
    • Israel still wants to blame muslim for risisng antisemitism and cries wolf over muslim immigration .it wants to perpetuate the myth of muslim violence against Jewish people. This is an interesting strategy. Why does it do this? One thing it does that it adds to islamophobia among the Jews and among gentiles in N America.

      Here is this statistics from -http://www.counterpunch.org/2015/02/23/the-fallacy-of-anti-semitism-rising/

      "whites perpetrated 44 percent of the anti-Semitic incidents in England, the lion’s share, while Arab or North African belligerence comprised a mere 10 percent. Surprisingly, South Asian offenders made up 37 percent, and only 8 percent were described as Black. According to the numbers, the “Arab-Israeli conflict,” as it metastasizes into Europe, is driven principally by whites, not by Jews or Arabs. I would argue that the same is true in the Levant"

      The reason Israel won't survive has nothing to do with the geopolitical changes in the world but has very thing to do with the intransigence of Israel against changing or adjusting to that reality.
      This is what is perceived negatively by the rest of he world. But this is not end of the story. Can Israel continue to develop without the massive dole that it receives from abroad? Can it continue to attack Gaza or maintain the blockade without nod from the west? Can it on tongue to steal gas off the coast? Can it on continue to build settlement without help of US money and political shield? Israel will not be able to absorb the changes constructively and efficiently. It will become more messianic,right wing ,religious,and prone to internal dislocation . Civil war will end.
      The counties that Israel is targeting are also the competitors in the same market.
      In 10 yrs time can Israel assume that a nuclear Syria or Iraq could be prevented without the pressure interest,and propaganda of West? Weakened and insulted America may not do much and any Israeli aggression may not go unanswered .
      So for Israel to survive,it has to maintain the chaos in ME . But to do that without US support means Israel will be in permanent chaos .israel has this plan for chaos or 30 or 40 yrs and 911 made it possible . But America is not in a position despite bravado co continue this anymore .
      BTW , ME may one day express gratitude to Israel or helping to break the artificial boundaries . IS will be gone, Al Quida will be gone but the bond that is growing again will survive and a Middle East that was envisioned in 1900 might become a reality . It will in that case follow the fragmentation,chaos,religious violences ,foreign invasions,and eventually rebuilding that China went through in last century. Israel will disappear out of internal fights the way its earlier incarnations did both in ME and in Europe.

    • As Israel grows more and more as a powerful military supplier to various nations like India or. Korea or Japan it will be forced to grow less and less disengaged from the defense and military establishments of West . Further development of Israeli military arsenals and refinement of its hardwares will be extremely jeopardized and start becoming vulnerable to this separation. West won't have any fear of telling Israel off. The current atmosphere of enmity between west and Israrl will spread to every area. Israel will not have the free ,easy access . Israel will lose this advantage that it enjoys now . Can it develop on its own? If history is a guide,then : no.
      The other possibility is that Israel continuously has to sell better products at cheaper rate to keep this " feeling" alive .
      Meanwhile India can and will face same problem but much worse that Europe is worried of- ' homegrown' terrorism - for support to Israel and support to Israeli manufactured wars . But it will be worse . Support to these homegrown terrorist will come from Pakistan,Bangladesh and even non Muslim countries . India is a country that has linguistic,tribal problems in addition to caste problems. There are enormous undercurrents of " terrorism' throughout the nation. This challenge will get magnified not lessened .
      Arms sale did not and could not support Cold War based Soviet existence . How could a " little shitty country " like Israel can survive on some bad blood based domestic and foreign tension that affect SE Asia ?
      China and India can't depend on same suppliers . It doesn't work. N Korea can grow more cozy with America if S Korea bolts the door .Pakistan and N Korea have good relation. Japan and S Korea can't see eye to eye . China and Japan have problems. Israel can't navigate this myriad complexities . Over the West ,it has by forcing other countries like German,France,Italy,and UK to forget their core interests and accept the pressures from US ( made by Israel ) . That will not work in S Asia. every move by one country will be matched by another country in opposite direction.
      Israel will not survive the disengagement from US. US unless remain only superpower can't guarantee succeess of Israel.
