Israel: The Dead Roach in America's Salad

by Charley Reese
The Israeli lobby and the neoconservatives are beating the drums for
war with Iran. I hope the president is not that dangerously stupid. The
betting on whether he is that stupid is about even.

The neocons - who, being self-centered, seemingly have no concept of
human nature - are advancing the premise that a military attack on
Iran will cause the people to lose faith in their government and result
in regime change.

A military attack on Iran will have the opposite effect. The people
will rally to their government, and any hope of regime change will be
dead. That people will rally around their existing leaders in the face
of an attack by a foreign power is as certain as sunrise. Neither
Israel nor the U.S. could do a greater favor for the ruling mullahs and
Iran's president than to launch an attack. It would cement their hold
on power.

The neocons' fallacious premise has already been disproved. In the
first Gulf War, the first Bush administration confidently incited the
Shi'ites and the Kurds to rebel after Saddam Hussein's forces were
expelled from Kuwait. The administration thought that Saddam,
embarrassed by a crushing military defeat, would fall from power in
Iraq easily. Instead, he rallied his forces and crushed both the
Shi'ites in the south and the Kurds in the north. Oops.

In the first place, it is not embarrassing for a Third World country
with obsolete equipment to be defeated by the world's No. 1 military
superpower. In the second place, the Sunnis, however much they might
have disliked Saddam, disliked even more the thought of being ruled by
Kurds or Shi'ites. In the third place, by President George H.W. Bush's
decision to not go to Baghdad, Saddam could say he duked it out with
the world's superpower and was still standing after the fight. That, in
most eyes, could be counted as a victory.

Some months ago, an Iranian human-rights advocate pleaded with the
current Bush administration to cease its rhetorical attacks on the
Iranian government. She said, quite accurately, that such attacks make
life impossible for Iranian reformers. Needless to say, the blockheads
in Washington ignored her.

What did we do when the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were
attacked? We rallied behind George W. Bush - Democrats and
Republicans, liberals and conservatives. That's the natural reaction of
normal human beings, and the Iranians are normal human beings. Attack
their country and they will rally round the flag.

The Iranians still insist they are not seeking nuclear weapons, and
there's not a s{*filter*}of evidence to contradict that claim. They still
adhere to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. They have often called
for a nuclear-free Middle East.

Once again, the dead roach in America's salad is Israel. The U.S.
hypocritically opposes a nuclear-free Middle East because Israel has
nuclear weapons. We hypocritically claim the Iranians are in violation
of international law when, in fact, it is Israel that refuses to sign
the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and refuses international
inspections. Given our craven obedience to Israel, we have exactly zero
credibility in the Arab and Muslim world.

As I have said before, I don't care if the Iranians do develop nuclear
weapons. My whole {*filter*} life was lived with 30,000 Soviet nuclear
weapons aimed at me. I can certainly live with the six or seven Iran
might be able to scrape together in the next five to 10 years. In the
meantime, the U.S. government should kick the Israeli lobby out of the
country and support Iran and the Arab League in pushing for a
nuclear-free Middle East.

The Israeli lobby pushing America to fight yet another war for Israel
reminds me of what the French ambassador to Great Britain said at a
party: "Why does the world allow this (expletive deleted) little
country to cause so much trouble?"

Why indeed? You should ask your politicians that question.

the above post is not anti-jewish. it is anti-israeli at best and it
focuses on criticizing government policies, not a set of religious
beliefs.

westchester county would you?

"oh, and chuck, you wouldn't happen to live somewhere in far eastern
westchester county would you?"

I used to live right on the Westchester line near Armonk. Why?

Now I live at my beach house enjoying the 90 degree weather today and
drinking beer's far away from
the northeast and the lyme Mafia.

You are so right.  Most Americans are so brain washed by the israeli
lobby that they aint got a clue.  And ask any American why they hate
us and again they aint got a clue.  they dont realise that the
$100,000,000,000.00 of israeli foreign aid from the US in the last 30
years used to kill, humiliate, and occupy the Palestians is the
primary cause of 911.  The israelis are good at deceiving and keeping
the lid on any opposition talk.   if you dont like the policy , you
must hate jews...........there aint one politican that can stand up to
the pressure....so we all pay and pay and pay.........one day ,
hopefully....we'll wise up...
