He has just published a paper soberly titled "A Heretic’s Up-Dated Musings on Syria" . This document should not be taken literally, because his arguments are rooted in baseless accusations..
However, it is very instructive in the figurative sense when understood as a "Storytelling" endeavor. Yossef Bodansky has nothing of an investigator and everything of a scriptwriter. His purpose is not to analyze what is happening in Syria, but to invent a new narrative that can justify NATO policies in the eyes of public opinion.
These are the storyteller’s two main feckless inventions:
• Tehran is already in possession of the nuclear bomb and is deploying a strategy to take over Jerusalem and Mecca, and then seize control of the Muslim world. Conducting a shadow war, Iran is supposedly manipulating Hezbollah, Hamas and the jihadists against the Muslim Brotherhood.• Syria’s domestic policy is a game of fluctuating alliances of two against one,(1) The Alawites, Druze and Kurds, against(2) Westernized Sunnis, and Armenian Orthodox Christians, or(3) Extremist Sunnis from rural areas and poor suburbs.
The anti-Syrian coalition was built around a dual objective: regime change to shatter the Axis of Resistance (in Israel’s interest) and to fragment the country to carry forward the reshaping of the broader Middle East (in the Pentagon’s interests).
