Now that a strike on Syria appears to have been temporarily postponed, it’s incumbent upon the American people to learn who was really responsible for this insane proposal and put a stop to this madness once and for all.The fact is, Syria never was a target of American imperialism or the military-industrial-complex. This was a Zionist war from the very beginning. And the United States and Obama administration were simply being used to fulfill Israel’s land-grabbing aspirations and prepare the way for a larger conflict with Iran.
“Congress to grant the President the authority he has requested to protect America’s national security interests and dissuade the Syrian regime’s further use of unconventional weapons. Simply put, barbarism on a mass scale must not be given a free pass….That is why America must act.”
“Those who perpetuate such acts of wanton murder must know that they cannot do so with impunity,” they said. “Those who possess or seek weapons of mass destruction, particularlyIran and Hezbollah, must see that there is accountability.”
“A lingering sensitivity over misrepresentations of the role of the pro-Israel community in the lead-up to the Iraq War in 2003 kept Jewish groups from weighing in on Syria until it was clear that President Obama was determined to strike. Now that same sensitivity is leading them to downplay any mention of Israel.“Officials of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, finishing up a conference call Tuesday afternoon with top security advisers to Obama, waited until the White House staffers were off the call before urging constituent organizations not to make their statements ‘Israel-centric.’”
“Foxman said that he himself supports an American military move in response to the use of chemical weapons. But his organization, like most other Jewish groups, refrained from making public statements on the issue. ‘There is a sensitivity of not jumping ahead of the administration,’ Foxman said, tying this sensitivity to ‘the Jewish community’s experience of being falsely accused of things it hasn’t done.’”
In it, they said that Saddam would have to be destroyed, and that Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and Iran would all have to be overthrown or destabilized in order for Israel to be truly safe.
As for the Forward’s claim that American Jews have been “falsely accused” of meddling in recent discussions dealing with “Iran’s nuclear ambitions,” that too is a blatant lie.
We must act now to prevent Iran from becoming even more dangerous. Contact your Member of Congress and urge them to increase sanctions on Iran before it’s too late. That is increase sanctions now to let Iran know that anything [newly elected Iranian President] Rowahani does short of meeting Netanyahu’s demands for total surrender on the nuclear issue is of no interest to us.”
“In 1994, AIPAC drew up their Plan for Action that was designed to impose comprehensive sanctions on Iran. By 1995, AIPAC began an intense lobbying campaign to impose a complete trade embargo against Iran and a boycott of its global trading partners. A year later, Congress passed the Iran-Libyan Sanctions Act of 1996. This legislation took sanctions to a whole new level by imposing extra-territorial measures that infringed upon the sovereignty of other nations.“Since then, AIPAC has been at the forefront of all sanctions legislation against Iran and have used their assets in the House and Senate to pressure three consecutive administrations into prosecuting their agenda. AIPAC’s own website has admitted that the implementation and enforcement of Iran Sanctions is their ‘chief legislative priority.’”
“Officials say that some 250 Jewish leaders and AIPAC activists will storm the halls on Capitol Hill beginning next week to persuade lawmakers that Congress must adopt the resolution or risk emboldening Iran’s efforts to build a nuclear weapon. They are expected to lobby virtually every member of Congress, arguing that ‘barbarism’ by the Assad regime cannot be tolerated, and that failing to act would ‘send a message’ to Tehran that the U.S. won’t stand up to hostile countries’ efforts to develop weapons of mass destruction, according to a source with the group.”
“We write you as descendants of Holocaust survivors and refugees, whose ancestors were gassed to death in concentration camps,” read the letter sent on the eve of Rosh Hashanah.“We write you as a people who have faced persecution for many centuries, and are glad to have found a safe refuge where we can thrive in the United States.”
“It was used by Adolf Hitler to gas millions of Jews; it was used by Saddam Hussein in order to gas [Iranians and his own people]; and now it has been used by Bashir Assad,” said Kerry.“Three people in all of history. And if the United States, knowing it and knowing that we’ve drawn a line that the world has drawn with us, is unwilling to stand up and confront that, it is an absolute certainty that gas will proliferate.”
“Despite decades of propaganda, the Jews that perished in these camps didn’t do so at the hands of some inhuman SS extermination machine,” writes Thorn in the final paragraph of his book.“Rather, they starved and died of diseases orchestrated by the handiwork of their own diabolical Zionist leaders that allowed Allied forces to bomb German supply lines. These elite Jews crafted their own ‘holocaust’ of approximately 100,000 Jews ~ their own people ~ at the end of WW II so that the facilitation of a new homeland would be guaranteed. The finger of blame for the blood of these dead Jews can only be pointed in one direction ~ at the Jews themselves. They were responsible . . . they were wholly responsible.”
“Washington doesn’t merely lack the legal authority for a military intervention in Syria. It lacks the moral authority. We’re talking about a government with a history of using chemical weapons against innocent people far more prolific and deadly than the mere accusations Assad faces from a trigger-happy Western military-industrial complex, bent on stifling further investigation before striking.”

“If the central power is sufficiently weakened, there is no real civil society to hold the polity together, no real sense of common identity. . . . The state then disintegrates ~ as happened in Lebanon ~ into a chaos of squabbling, feuding, fighting sects, tribes, regions, and parties.”
“Israel is perhaps the only Western country where there is widespread support for an American/European attack on Syria. While in the United States and Great Britain, some 90 percent of the publics are opposed to such an attack ~ in Israel, more than 66% of the Jewish Hebrew-speaking population supports an attack (only 17% opposes).”
