“Everything you need to know about Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to Congress Tuesday was the presence in the visitor’s gallery of [Sheldon Adelson]. We are hostage to his fortune…”
…by Jonas E. Alexis
More good news. Zionists in Israel and America have come to realize that Netanyahu wounded the Zionist project and has done a nut job, and those Zionists are not happy about that.
“Tens of thousands of Israelis are gathering at a Tel Aviv square under the banner ‘Israel wants change’ and calling for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to be replaced in March 17 national elections. The rally’s keynote speaker is former Mossad chief Meir Dagan who recently slammed Netanyahu’s conduct and called him ‘the person who has caused the greatest strategic damage to Israel.’”
Dagan did not hide his opinions while he was watching Netanyahu’s speech.
Dagan told Channel 2 that Netanyahu’s assessment with respect to Iran was complete “bullshit.” Dagan went further to say that not only Iran does not pose a threat to the United States, but “Iranian missiles will never be able to hit the United States.” TheJerusalem Post has recently reported,
“When Netanyahu remarked that Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, ‘spews the oldest hatred of anti-Semitism with the newest technology,’ Dagan shook his head…
“The former Mossad chief said that Netanyahu’s appearance before Congress was ‘a political speech that caused diplomatic and defense damage to Israel.’”
This is not the end. The Time of Israel declared last month that “Netanyahu closed the door on peace talks.”
Netanyahu “closed the door on peace talks” long ago, going all the way back to 1995 when he unequivocally postulated that Iran would possess nuclear weapons within five years. In chapter 6 of his book Fighting Terrorism, Netanyahu wrote,
“The best estimates at this time place Iran between three and five years away from possessing the prerequisites required for the independent production of nuclear weapons.
“After this time, the Iranian Islamic republic will have the ability to construct atomic weapons without the importation of materials or technology from abroad…The first phase of construction and electrical work will be completed within three to four years.”
Fighting Terrorism was hailed as a breakthrough by the Washington Post, the Washington Times, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Detroit News, etc. I was just sixteen years old in 1995, falling in love with the beauty and elegance of mathematics and logical reasoning. Twenty years later, Iran still does not have the bomb!
On the contrary, the intelligence community has universally declared that Iran dropped its nuclear programs a long time ago. But Israel, of course, was not prepared to deal with that fact because the regime wanted to perpetuate the hoax that Iran was working towards the development of a nuclear bomb.
When evidence was against them, the regime rejected the report by the intelligence community that Iran dropped its nuclear program. Defense Minister Ehud Barack said then,
“It is apparently true that in 2003 Iran stopped pursuing its military nuclear program for a certain period of time. But in our estimation, since then it is apparently continuing with its program to produce a nuclear weapon.”
In 2013, the Israeli regime cooked up some evidence saying that Iran already had a nuclear bomb. When the United States and much of the world ignored that categorical lie, the regime quietly stopped the propaganda and moved on to other lies.
The simple fact is that Iran has never been in the business of persecuting Jews. Netanyahu has to explain to the world why Jews in Iran do not agree with him. He also has to explain why Iranians has been in the business of saving Jews, not slaughtering them.
Now, does it not stand to reason to posit that Netanyahu is a mad man seeking nothing less than perpetual wars and conflict in the Middle East? Doesn’t the Obama administration have every right to call this man a “chickenshit”? Isn’tJohn Kerry within his own right to ignore Netanyahu and seek support in places like France in order to boost the deal with Iran? (By the way, Kerry has already made some fruitful progress on this very issue in Europe.)
There are some fools out there who believe that Netanyahu has done a great job during his performance in Congress. Right after Netanyahu’s speech, Neocon hawk Bill Kristol declared that “political Zionism has been successful.”Kristol cited Jewish Zionist philosopher Leo Strauss to buttress his point.
Strauss thought that “Political Zionism was the attempt to restore that inner freedom, that simple dignity, of which only people who remember their heritage and are loyal to their fate are capable.”
Both Kristol and Strauss were being dishonest. Kristol in particular knows that there is movement around the world to deconstruct Zionism and its political ideologues and throw it in the trashcan of history, which is where it belongs. For example, as soon as Netanyahu opened his mouth and started to produce one lie after another during his speech, people in France began to yawn.
It has been reported that “The French are more concerned with Madonna’s diplomatic overtures than Netanyahu’s occupation of the bully pulpit.” In other words, Netanyahu is worse than the former porn star. It gets worse. Pay close attention to the words of David Brinn of the Jerusalem Post:
“Following his speech to the joint meeting of Congress on Tuesday, he [Netanyahu] probably won’t be allowed within 10 miles of the White House until the end of Barack Obama’s term in January 2017.”
The New York Times published an article by Iran’s ambassador Gholamali Khoshroo saying that Netanyahu clearly used “nuclear deceptions” to advance his own political ideology. Roger Cohen of the same magazine has recently admitted that
“Netanyahu’s credibility is low. In 1993, in an Op-Ed article in The Times headlined ‘Peace in Our Time?’ he compared the late Yitzhak Rabin to Chamberlain for the Oslo Accords.
“Rabin’s widow never forgave him. For more than a decade now, he has said Iran was on the brink of a bomb and threatened Israeli military action — and hoped his hyperbole would be forgotten. He called the 2013 interim agreement with Iran a “historic mistake”; the accord has proved a historic achievement that reversed Iran’s nuclear momentum.”
Moreover, some of Netanyahu’s greatest admirers have come out and said that he has been wrong for 25 years!Fareed Zakaria himself declared that “Netanyahu enters never-never land.” Academic and 28-year veteran of the CIA Paul R. Pillar did not help the Zionist project when he recently wrote:
“One of the strangest aspects of the frantic crying of alarm over Iran’s nuclear program—with the crying having reached its most publicized peak in Benjamin Netanyahu’s Republican/Likud campaign rally in the House chamber—is that the chief crier is the government of a country that not only has the most advanced nuclear program in the Middle East but has kept that program completely out of the reach and scrutiny of any international control and inspection regime.
“It is hard to think of a better example in international politics of the pot calling the kettle black, and in this case the pot is much blacker than the kettle—and was so even before Iran put its program under the unprecedented restrictions and intrusive inspections to which it agreed more than a year ago in negotiations with the United States and the rest of the P5+1.”
The plot certainly thickens. Zionism, as of now, seems to be a rotten corpse in the eyes of many. People like Mortimer Zuckerman (chairman and editor-in-chief of U.S. News & World Report and publisher of New York Daily News) are trying to regain ground by reiterating what Netanyahu has said, but those people end up producing another nut job and are failing miserably.
As Preston James has recently written, Netanyahu, like a clown, wanted “to get attention,” and he thought he was going to advance the Zionist project by his bombastic and sophomoric speech.
But he certainly was not ready for what happened next. Netanyahu brought his political hammer with him to Congress and he wanted nothing less than Iranian nails.
Yet the evidence clearly indicates that the mad man did not find Iranian nails but Zionist backlash, which still haunts his political voice and future maneuvering. Newsweek has recently reported that “Netanyahu falls behind election rival despite Congress speech.”
The mad man thought that both the world and Israelis would join him if he postulates one lie after another, but he does not know that, as Allen L. Rolland has pointed out, the world is tired of perpetual wars in the Middle East. Veterans are also tired of being stranded in a Zionist world. Rolland rightly wrote:
“Bibi’s problem is he believes that peace cannot be maintained without regional dominance and military power and he sees it slipping away and is determined to maintain that old world order at any cost—even Israel’s important ties with the United States.”
That is what happened when you become a political psychopath. Logic, reason, moral and political order become relics of the past, and once those critical tools are banned, one is left with Talmudic disputations, which basically say that the Goyim are nothing but donkeys upon which the Dreadful Few should ride. This was the position of the late Rabbi Ovadia Yosef and it is still the historical position of many rabbis in Israel.
So, should we think Netanyahu for his speech? Well, before he went to Congress, we warned him here at VT. He didn’t listen, and his speech indirectly deconstructed the prevailing notion that anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism.
Thanks to Netanyahu, that demonstrably false notion is no longer an attractive offer or a politically viable option even for those whose livelihood is contingent upon the Zionist narrative. This position has become so intellectually vacuous and morally repugnant that Zionist writers like Edward Alexander are now trying to wrestle with it.
When a Neocon ideologue or a member of the Zionist regime comes up to you and risibly posits the claim that to criticize the state of Israel or Benjamin Netanyahu or even Israeli behavior is to be an anti-Semite, you can calmly say, “So, tell me: What have you been smoking lately?”
This question is important precisely because the Jewish Daily Forward, one of the most vibrant Jewish magazines in New York, has made it quite clear that Netanyahu produced at least eleven lies during his speech in Congress.
The magazine did not mince words when it declared that each of Netanyahu’s claims “is bogus.” The magazine even detailed every one of those bogus claims and diffused them all. This is what I and other VT writers have been doing.
The big question is this: who paid Netanyahu to tell those lies?
Hint: it was not Obama, since he obviously did not even want to see the mad man’s performance last Tuesday. It was also not the American people, since they were exhausted about seeing movies such as American Psycho and were not ready to see an actual psycho in public—and obviously not in Congress.
If your educated guess is Sheldon Adelson, then you are absolutely right.
“Everything you need to know about Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to Congress Tuesday was the presence in the visitor’s gallery of that man. We are hostage to his fortune…
This uniquely pernicious influence has never bothered the Republican Party, and “presidential hopefuls line up to kiss his assets, scraping and bowing for his blessing, which when granted is bestowed with his signed checks.”
“Data from both the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics and the Center for Public Integrity show that in the 2012 election cycle, Adelson and his wife Miriam (whose purse achieved metaphoric glory Tuesday when it fell from the gallery and hit a Democratic congressman) contributed $150 million to the GOP and its friends, including $93 million to such plutocracy-friendly super PACs as Karl Rove’s American Crossroads, the Congressional Leadership Fund, the Republican Jewish Coalition Victory Fund, Winning Our Future (the pro-Newt Gingrich super PAC) and Restore Our Future (the pro-Mitt Romney super PAC)…
“But Sheldon Adelson was not only sitting in the House gallery on Tuesday because of the strings he pulls here in the United States. He is also the Daddy Warbucks of Israel and Benjamin Netanyahu is yet another of his beneficiaries — not to mention an ideological soulmate. ”
“He uses the paper to bang the drum incessantly for Netanyahu and his right-wing Likud Party, under the reign of which Israel has edged closer and closer to theocracy.
“As Hebrew University economist Momi Dahan put it: ‘De facto, the existence of a newspaper like Israel Hayom egregiously violates the law, because [Adelson] actually is providing a candidate with nearly unlimited resources…’
“Adelson has increased the press run of Israel Hayom‘s weekend edition by 70 percent. The paper says it’s to increase circulation and advertising, but rival newspaper Ha’aretz reports, ‘Political sources are convinced the extra copies are less part of a business plan and more one to help Netanyahu’s re-election bid.’”
Recently, Netanyahu told Israel Hayom that his speech to Congress was “well worth the cost of confrontation” with Barack Obama.
Obviously the mad man did not count the cost, which now has become a laughing stock. As a mad man, Netanyahu does not think straight, does not have a clear vision, and has lived under the illusions that wars, conflict, and chaos are the best way to lead Zionism.
Netanyahu seems to think that no one can challenge him because he is a self-styled “savior.” But he again cannot hide the fruit of Zionism all over the Middle East. As we all know, Zionism has unleashed a flood of chaos in much of the Middle East and even in America and now people are waking up.
People are indeed tired of Zionism’s double standards. For example, David Petraeus, who supported the Zionist plot in the Middle East on numerous occasions, leaked classified information to his mistress Paula Broadwell, but he doesn’t go to jail. Edward Snowden, who got tired of the Zionist machination in America and much of the world, leaked classified information so that people can escape the Zionist chaos, but the Zionist regime would like to have his head on a silver platter.
In the 1980s, Zionist’s ministry of propaganda (Hollywood) used to produce movies such as Rambo III, depicting Russia as the bad guy in places like Afghanistan. In that particular movie, Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) stood for the poor Afghans and fought for the innocent, because again Russia was the culprits.
But by 2014, the Zionist regime produced American Snipers, portraying Afghans and Iraqis as the bad guys who need to be shot. In other words, when Russia was out of Afghanistan and when the Neocons took over, Iraqis and Afghans were no longer people who wanted to defend their country but terrorists who ought to be exterminated by any means.
A Catholic priest gets caught with his pants down, the Dreadful Few ask that he be hanged; members of the Dreadful Few get caught with their pants down (Alan Dershowitz, Dominique Strauss Kahn, Jeffrey Epstein, Woody Allen, Roman Polanski, to name just a few), the Dreadful Few defend them.
How can the regime can maintain such a blatant contradiction while their heads do not explode? This is certainly beyond comprehension. But things are moving at an alarming rate. As Preston James has again pointed out, the Zionist regime has underestimated the World Wide Web. They certainly can’t hide their essentially Talmudic work anymore.
“Never before in history have so many Judaics who hate Zionism been so motivated to stand up, speak up and take action to get control of Israel away from the Likudists who are subjecting Israel to destruction by the whole world unless they immediately clean house.”
We now know that foreign policy, as Doug Bandow of the CATO Institute himself points out, “is controlled by fools.”Those fools, Bandow continues, want to drag us all into perpetual wars in the Middle East, “irrespective of consequence” and “irrespective of country and circumstance.” Bandow adds,
“Yet virtually never do foreign policy practitioners admit that things hadn’t gone well. While the outcome in Iraq horrified the American people, few Neocons acknowledged that anything had gone awry or that their plan had the slightest flaw in conception…
“U.S. foreign policy is run by fools. Only the American people can change that. They must start electing leaders committed to not doing “stupid” stuff. Only then will Washington end the endless cycle of intervention, disaster, intervention, and disaster.”
Reasonable and sensible people should concur completely with those statements. And it is high time that we Americans select a reasonable person in office. I can say right now that Jeb Bush is not going to help because he has already kissed the Zionist ring in Las Vegas.
