Romney promises to abdicate American foreign policy towards Israel . . . to Israel

Can it even get worse than this in the GOP Primary? Think Progress reports Romney stated he would abdicate American foreign policy towards Israel . . . to Israel:

Now it seems that a President Romney will allow the Israeli government to decide American policy toward that country. The free daily newspaper Israel Hayom — a media outlet closely associated with right-wing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu — asked Romney if, as president, he would ever consider moving the American Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. In his answer, Romney made some astonishing claims. First, that his policy toward Israel will be guided by Israeli leaders; second, on the Jerusalem issue, he’d do whatever Israel tells him to do; and third, he does not think the United States should take a leadership role in resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict:

ROMNEY: The actions that I will take will be actions recommended and supported by Israeli leaders. I don’t seek to take actions independent of what our allies think is best, and if Israel’s leaders thought that a move of that nature would be helpful to their efforts, then that’s something I’ll be inclined to do. But again, that’s a decision which I would look to the Israeli leadership to help guide. I don’t think America should play the role of the leader of the peace process, instead we should stand by our ally. Again, my inclination is to follow the guidance of our ally Israel, as to where our facilities and embassies would exist.

Yowza. TP flushes it out in their must read post but there’s even more frightening quotes in the interview at Israel Hayom. Asked how he would change Obama’s policy if he were in the White House:

By being silent as protesters took to the streets in Iran, by not establishing crippling sanctions against Iran for their nuclear program, and by not mouthing a credible military threat to their ongoing nuclear program. The right course is for the president to declare that a nuclear Iran is unacceptable to America, and to punctuate that commitment. I have called for us to deploy two aircraft carrier task forces, one to the gulf, one to the Mediterranean to communicate our resolve in that regard.

Sounds like war drums for Iran.

    This won’t be a major policy change in the way the US government treats the Israeli government. After all, US politicians have been deferring to the Israel lobby and to the Israeli government on matters related to Israel.

    The difference here is that there is no shame left. It’s out in the open. It is the same with the New York Times. One used to have to dig up information about the ideological affiliations and the donors of that newspaper, or analyze over a period of several months the paper’s coverage in order to draw conclusions from such analysis. Not anymore. The paper’s Jerusalem reporter can have a son in the Israeli army, and the newspaper doesn’t care about the public relations repercussions, or its professional or ethical standing.

    Throughout history, this kind of chutzpah was the hallmark of corrupt empires and corrupt regimes that were on the verge of collapsing from within.

    Forgive this disturbing metaphor, but it’s like an infection where the wound can no longer contain the pus, and so it bursts and starts to leak out.

    No one in power bothers to hide his or her perverted agenda, anymore. The king is naked and he doesn’t care anymore.

      there is definitely no pretense of hiding here. we’re more than a year from the election and candidates are groveling on the ground to play israel’s patsy. so how is perry or any of the others going to top that? i’m sure they will try..a wild ride ahead folks. hold onto your hats.

        I think the M-I-C (esp. arms makers and sellers) control 1/2 the USA’s budget (think armed forces, intelligence, anti-terrorism, homeland defense [recall when that was the sole province of the armed forces?] They WANT to sell expensive toys to Israel and the Arab countries. And they DO. (Israel buys its with USA’s money sometimes.)

        So it is not only BIG ZION but also BIG ARMS that provide the oligarchic momentum for the USA’s pro-Israel (pro-conflict) stance. Chomsky might well believe that BIG ARMS is the bigger of these.

        Watch the attempts to solve the USA’s debt without reducing the ridiculously too large military budget. It is to laugh. Taxing the very rich will be EASY compared to really reducing the military budget.

    Are you f***ing kidding me?! In addition to the most blatant public display of submission (and ass kissing) to Israel, these are probably the most irresponsible and reprehensible comments I have ever heard from a US official let alone a presidential candidate. How absolutely disgraceful. It seems like this election will be determined by which candidate can promise the greatest amount of blind support to our “best friend”.

    Americans, get ready for the worst 4 years of this country’s history if ANYBODY in the GOP gets elected. War with Iran will be inevitable. God help us

      Kris on October 29, 2011, 1:53 pm

      I think we can look forward to “the worse 4 years of this country’s history” no matter who is elected, Republican or Obama (who is a Republican, too, as we have seen). Obama and the other Republicans are all determined to destroy the regulations and social programs that most of us depend on.

      Ron Paul is the only one of them who opposes and would end our wars, opposes attacking Iran, opposes our “special relationship” with Israel, and opposes the Patriot Act.

      The misery that you see ahead for this country is misery that we have brought upon ourselves; at least we could stop inflicting death and terror on millions of people overseas. The only choice we seem to have in the upcoming elections is whether we will choose misery for ourselves and everyone else, or misery for only ourselves.

    Does Romney have any idea what it means to permanently place an aircraft carrier task force in the Gulf (presumably the Persian Gulf). Is he at all aware that the Iranians have the capacity to sink an aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf? That is one ship with thousands of US sailors on board, not to mention the multiple cruisers and destroyers associated with such a task force. Is he totally insane? The US Navy is fully aware of Iran’s capability in this regard and that is why Admiral Fallon was so adamant in 2006 to avoid war with Iran.

    • Avi_G.
      Avi_G. on October 29, 2011, 2:15 am

      In tonight’s Ha-Aretz, an Israeli reporter writes about Ehud Barak’s and Netanyahu’s adamant insistence to attack Iran.

      Other reports in the Arabic press indicate that the US has in recent weeks sent representatives to Egypt to appeal to Moslem movements there and get their commitment to remain neutral on Israel in the event of an attack on Iran.

      Also on board for the attack on Iran are the Sunni states of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf region.

      Political analysts in several Arabic language newspapers have also pointed to US troop withdrawal from Iraq, stating that Maliki’s rejection of amnesty was merely a political stunt.

      So there you have it, a mess in the making.

        Avi_G. on October 29, 2011, 6:05 pm

        I’m not sure there will be an incident, a casus belli, if you will.

        I think just like in 1981, when Israel attacked the Iraq nuclear reactor in Osirak and just like the attack on a Syrian building in 2007 — alleged by Israel and the US to be a nuclear facility — an attack on Iran will be a surprise attack.

        Any incident instigated by either Israel or the US would signal to Iran that an attack is imminent. So the two are more likely to avoid utilizing such a tactic.

    Well, I suppose he had to say something that would outmatch Perry. I take back what I said before about him — Romney just made himself the topmost candidate for the Republican Party.

    Obama? Pretty much screwed. (Well, so are the rest of us but then, the Wall Street and Oakland protests have shown us that, right?)

    At least the guy is being honest, which is more than can be said about Obama. He’s promising to do what Obama is actually now doing with maybe exception to the embassy move and the only reason Obama hasn’t already was to avoid embarrassing the kings of Saudia and Jordan.

      One word: treason.

      I used to doubt when psychopathicgod said he thought there could be a large and catastrophic outbreak of violent anti-semitism in the US when the general population came to understand the true nature of the relationship between Israel and the US. I’m not so sure these day, sadly.

      If there is, it won’t come from the left.

      • Sumud
        Sumud on October 31, 2011, 5:02 am

        lobewyper ~ I don’t necessarily think that it will happen but when you have a presidential candidate openly declaring (in effect) he is more interested in serving a foreign nation than his own, that’s extremely dangerous, to say the least.

        To make a broad generalisation, I think people on the right are more easily led by such ‘news’ sources as Fox News.

        Think of the islamophobia current in many western countries underpinning the ‘war on terror’. It’s coming from the right, not the left.

        Now picture a scenario where Romney is elected and Israel then attacks Iran, drawing the US into war with Iran. It ain’t going to be pretty, and I think will impact average Americans a *lot* more than invading Iraq and Afghanistan has. If things get bad enough (ie. really high unemployment) I can see much unrest in the right and some scapegoating of American jews as a proxy for anger that will develop about Israel exerting too much control over US politics.

        Let’s hope it never gets to that. There are some very smart & moral people on the right such as Ron Paul and libertarians. They’re not inclined to racism but unfortunately on the right they’re only a minority.

I would like to see all the candidates kissing the Israelis ass loud and clear in public till their lips are chapped and Americans are nausated.

      the class war by peaceful means?

        based on?

        twenty years ago when president george bush the elder threated to withhold a ten billion dollar loan in an effort to limit israeli settlement building. coupled the threat by insinuating that maybe israel-firsters were disloyal

        and public polls at the time?

        surprise of surproses, overwhelmingly supportive of the president

        sure scared the bejesus out of the israel-firsters

        alas, the president eventually caved to the israel lobby, but had he persevered, who knows what the u.s.-israel relationship would be like today, or whether there’d even be an israel?

    I accept and understand that the campaign between the Republican and Democratic candidates will be to see who can be most subservient to the most extreme tendencies in Israel. What disturbs me more though every election is that so many of my friends who have a more sophisticated understanding of the issue, be they liberal Zionists with a pretense of a guilty conscience about the Palestinians, be they anti-Zionist Jews, be they “pro-Palestinian” Americans, or even be they Palestinian-Americans, will vote for the lesser of two evils on other issues, and thus enable the perverse process.

    Meanwhile the American Likudniks will care only about a commitment to increasing the size of the welfare check to Israel and increasing the level of diplomatic and military support to Zionism. All other issues are irrelevant.

    An American politician will have nothing to fear from people of conscience on this subject as long as this process continues. Only when we have the courage to reject the candidates from both major parties, and make them aware of our rejection, will there be a chance of a shift.

    I vote Libertarian, but hope that good people will choose any third party or an independent candidate.

    Now if only Ron Paul wasn’t so genial and decent a guy he’d take these comments of Romney’s and stick them so bluntly and vigorously and repeatedly up Romney’s fundamental aperture that not only would Romney be instant toast but it would scare the living hell out of every other candidate and politician out there.

    Or maybe it would take Ron Paul doing so *and* the media to faithfully report on same, so meaning it’s almost certainly hopeless, but, anyway, one can dream, no?

    Better than living with the reality of an American President openly boasting about abdicating his duty to serve the interests of the American people.

    The newspaper, Israel HaYom, is owned by right-wing billionaire (and casino owner) Sheldon Adelson. The newspaper has a large circulation in Israel because it is given away for free. (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israel_Hayom)
    Unfortunately Romney is not the only US politician to grovel in public before the Israel Lobby. For a couple of decades, US politicians have vowed to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. After the election, they forget all about it, unil the next election cycle.
    Surveys indicate that Israel is the top issue for 1% of American Jews.

    Walid, I was about to write the exact same comment. Romney has stated clearly what Obama has been doing quietly. Israel policy does not change with the changing of the presidency in the U.S. The two party system has one heart and that heart is Israel.

    So Romney would take orders from the leaders of Israel, not from (or in the interest of) the American people. GOOD WY TO RAISE MONEY. Just what the entire Congress did a short time ago, with 584736 instances of applause when Bibi spoke to them in the USA Knesset, I mean the USA Congress.

    It is possible that some (few, to be sure) Republican (primary) voters would take affront at this IF IT WERE KNOWN, but it is probably not widely known. Giving direction of US foreign policy to furr’ners doesn’t sound like a good move for a Mur’kin politician. BUT THE VOTERS HAVE BEEN TAUGHT THAT ISRAEL KNOWS BEST. No-one at this point is telling them anything different.

    Better would be a stand-up Obama speaking in, say mid October 2012, pointing the this OPEN obsequiousness as disloyal and possibly pointing, as well, to the horror that had ALREADY IN FACT OCCURRED (say in oil prices) AFTER ISRAEL DID ATTACK IRAN. suggesting Israeli interests and USA’s interests are NOT the same.

    Hard to judge the future.

  15. on October 29, 2011, 9:54 am

    I have long voiced the opinion that Iran’s leaders would be derelict in protecting the interests of the Iranians if they did not seek a nuclear weapons capability.

    Israel and the United States, with their constant stream of provocations, threats, and military aggressions make an Iranian nuclear weapons program inevitable and prudent.

    With the “fall” of the Soviet Union, I once held the optimism that my children and grandchildren would not know the fear we baby boomers experienced in the fifties, when our teacher would yell “DROP!!!”, and we’d all scurry to get under our desks, fed the ridiculous notion that our desks would protect us from nuclear calamity.

    Apparently, these TRAITOROUS BASTARDS in DC learned NOTHING, and the pursuit of wealth and power has once again superceded their concern for the welfare of their constituency. These fools are marching us headlong into catastrophe. OWS isn’t enough to stop them, for since 9/11 they have implemented laws and policies designed to put down our inevitable and overdue rebellion against tyranny.

    When Obama refused to apply the letter of the law and the exercise of justice, the handwriting was on the wall. We The People are no more.

    Iran faces existential threats from Israel and the U.S. It is as entitled as any nation on Earth to defend itself by developing nuclear weapons and engaging in “pre-emptive self-defense” strikes on nations that represent potential threats.

    Before we get overly worked up about Mitten’s latest, I think it is worth nothing that he is still in PRIMARY mode – Mitt wants to be the Republican nominee, so he is going to dog whistle his way there, this message was a christian zionist message, designed to curry favor with the whacko “christians” in America. And we all know that in American political discourse, what you say in a campaign one day, is forgotten the next.

    There have been far many more, and far many more egregious examples of outright fealty from political leaders – on both sides of the aisle- for these statements from Romney to get me riled up. “bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran” and ” We’ll obliterate Iran” come to mind.

      Agreed, appeal to Christian Zionists. But after the primary, and after they ALL start beating the same drum, will the Republican primary winner PULL BACK from Israel? Not if Obama is any measure. Not if they want to win CZ votes (as well as money and primary votes).

      The timing of this (let’s move the embassy to EJ) adnm of the threats about Iran seem designed to influence the 2012 USA election by tying-up ALL USA pols to Israel’s apron-string (as if it hadn’t alrady happened).

      Interesting question is whether such overreaching can backfire. Hasn’t yet. One can always hope. especially as to war with Iran. I’d kinda like (well, I hate war, but yo know what I mean) Israel to attack Iran and horrible blow-back against Israel and USA which CANNOT BUT BE ATTRIBUTED TO ISRAEL.

    Heres an interesting development in my neck of the woods. The opinion page of the Bakersfield Californian opened the debate on the Isr/Pal issue on Friday. This may not seem earthshaking, but one must bear in mind Bakersfield is an enclave of an EXTREMELY conservative and right wing public sector. Oil and agriculture produces great wealth here, and Fox News is treated as a purveyor of the Gospel.

    Read the two pieces. What I found remarkable is the hypocricy of the pro-zionist commentary. His piece reeks of the very bloodlust that he accuses the Palestinans of. Yet the rebuttal, by a local college proffessor, is measured and reasonable in tone. Its a shame that the average Californian reader will miss the irony, and will undoubtedly be drawn to the pro-zionist drool.

    One wonders, how does a “metal fabrication estimator”, in Bakersfield California, manage to so perfectly adhere to the Hasbara script???? If there are any doubts about the managed, structured, and scripted narrative being carefully fed to the American public, one only need read Miller’s essay. Its impossible to believe he was not coached and advised what message he was to feed to the Californian’s readership.

      yes, they do and indeed his words or animosity and hostility towards arabs in general were very easy to read from the get go of his letter…

    Well, how about we call Cain a “so-called American”??? Kinda fits, with him deciding to whore himself to the Israelis, doesn’t it?
