AMERICA IN NO-WIN WAR FOR ISRAEL
By Harmony Grant

Congress and the Senate are in Democratic control, Rumsfeld has
resigned, and mainstream media calls it all a referendum against
the war. America is fed up. America wants change.
Yes, America has spoken. But about what? America hasn’t said
no to tax cuts, individual freedom, traditional marriage, or many
other aspects of conservatism. America wasn’t saying “no” to
limited government and individual freedoms, to the first Amendment
or the right to bear arms.
America was saying “no” to a Republican party steered
by neoconservative Zionism.
The dots will never be connected by mainstream media, but the facts
are there. In midterm elections, America yelled “no” to
an Israel-first agenda that left American boys dead in Iraq, squandered
American money and reputation, and, oh yeah, caused the deaths of
44,206 Iraqi civilians.
There’s only one tiny problem: Americans don’t know
who they’re mad at. The lefties among us think the war was
about oil; the loyal Republicans think the war was about national
security. Few are looking at the neoconservative Jews (Paul Wolfowitz,
Elliot Abrams, Richard Perle, Douglas Feith, among others) who crafted
this war on behalf of Israel.
As Ari Shavit, writing in the Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz bluntly stated, “The war in Iraq was conceived by twenty-five
neo-conservative intellectuals, most of them Jews, who are pushing
President Bush to change history.” (April 9, 2003)
Americans don’t like what’s being done in their name, but they
don’t even see who’s doing it. It’s like screaming at your
brother while your dad is beating you.
We went into Iraq primarily to make the Mideast safe for Israel.
It wasn’t about terrorism. It wasn’t about oil. It was
about a tiny desert state the size of New Jersey whose American supporters
happen to pretty much control the Mideast policy of the US government.
Unfortunately, this will remain true whether the colors of the
House and Senate are red or blue. AIPAC boasts that during the midterm
elections campaign, “nearly every viable candidate met with
AIPAC professional staff members and submitted a position paper summarizing
his or her views on U.S. Middle East policy.” Wanting to reassure
Jewish voters leaning Democrat, AIPAC assured America that Congressional
support for Israel would remain in force no matter which party was
Arabs hope otherwise. They’re glad Rumsfeld is out and Bush
is going down. Check out BBC’s selection of quotes from Arab
media; it paints a pretty clear picture (“Mid-East media hail
Bush defeat,” Nov. 9, 2006).
Palestinian daily Al-Quds says naively: “We hope this will
lead to a review of the aspects of US foreign policy which many Americans
oppose, including the blind bias to Israeli policy at the expense
of Palestinian and Arab rights.”
They can keep hoping till the sea turns to Kool-Aid, but as much
as 60 percent of Democratic funding comes from Jewish constituents.
We’re more likely to see Al Gore deny global warming than to
see Democrats stand against Zionist interests. So much for the “referendum.”
But keep steaming, America. Read the news reports of 19 Gazan women
and children killed in their sleep by the IDF last week. Stay tuned
for the coming invasions of Iran and Syria.
Maybe someday you’ll get fed up enough to pass a referendum
on the real issue: Jewish control of American resources and foreign
policy, for the sake of the state of Israel.
