BEING HUSTLED - ISRAELI STYLE
by Emanuel A. Winston, Mid East Analysis & Commentary
What happened to the promised investigation of the failed Israeli response to the launching of 4,000 Katyusha Rockets by Hezb’Allah into Northern Israel from Lebanon?
Israel’s Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s government did everything they could to delay and side-track this investigation. Recently, the Lindenstrauss Comptroller’s Report was to release its first findings but, the Olmert government, in collusion with the Leftist Supreme Court, ordered it delayed for months.
Other ongoing investigations against Olmert personally are also being dragged out so Olmert can retain his seat as Prime Minister and more. The "More" is what is in question.
Clearly, the Israeli Supreme Court is acting like a fully-fledged Leftist political Party in collaboration with Olmert and his Kadima Party to force through several personal agendas. One is to make a pronouncement that it is official government policy to De-Judaize and empty Judea and Samaria (the so-called "west bank") of all Jews as was done in 2005 from Gush Katif/ Gaza.
This is wired to on-going pressure from Bush and Rice to accept the phony Saudi Plan of 2002 for Israel to withdraw to the 1967 Armistice lines and allow the so-called 4 to 5 million descendants of the 460,000 Arab Muslims who fled the 1948 War of Independence to move like an uncontrolled mob into the Jewish State of Israel. When all of this is done, the Arab Muslims of Saudi Arabia, Syria, Libya, Egypt, Lebanon, Iraq, Al Qaeda, Hezb’Allah, Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood...and the non-Arab Muslims of Iran, Indonesia, etc., will all swear on a stack of Korans to cease Terrorism and no longer follow Koranic Law to drive the Jews from their Land. Isn’t this where Bush, Rice and the Saudis say "Trust Me, We have your best interests at heart!" ?
Their intended trick is to give it a stamp of Israeli government approval under Olmert so the Arab Muslim Palestinians, whether they be the PLO, Hamas, Al Aksa Martyrs’ Brigade, Tanzim, Fatah.... or whatever, can move in with the backing of Bush, Rice, Baker, the U.N., the E.U., and Russia, that is, the Quartet. This has been Olmert’s and Kadima’s declared Party Plank which went underground after the expulsion from Gush Katif/Gaza failed and Olmert needed cover for his corrupt practices now under legal scrutiny.
Moreover, it is what Bush, Rice want for their failed Oslo Road Map, knowing that neither Abu Mazen (Mahmoud Abbas), the Palestinian Authority President, nor Ismail Haniya, current Head of Hamas can make or will deliver peace.
THE PROPOSED GOLAN HEIGHTS SURRENDER
Publically revealing the Quartet’s plan to "divest" Israel of the Golan Heights should put a stop to the "almost" secret negotiations with Syria for Israel to surrender the Heights which sits atop and controls Israel’s most important water source. To abandon the Golan Heights would also relinquish Israel’s high-tech listening and observation posts on Mt. Hermon and Mt. Dov which the Sheba’a Farms protects.
The U.S. believes it can cut a "lease" deal with Bashar Assad, President of Syria, allowing a large American ground and air force base to be built as a "gift" for forcing Israel to cede her vital observation stations on the Golan Heights.
"EU Foreign Policy Chief Javier Solana said Wednesday March 13th that Europe supported Syria’s plans to get back the Golan Heights." Well, now we know why the Secret Syrian Gambit has been hidden. The Europeans are finally saying publically that they join the Bush administration in demanding that Israel turn over the strategically important Golan Heights to the regime of terror-supporter Assad of Syria. Following a meeting with Syrian President Bashar Assad, Solana said at a press conference that "we are interested in working for your country to return to itself the territories that were captured [in the 1967 war]." (2) No doubt, Solana upped the EU’s ante when he visited Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on March 12th.
SQUELCHING THE LINDENSTRAUSS & WINOGRAD INVESTIGATIONS AGAINST OLMERT
You can see why the Leftist Supreme Court has colluded with Olmert to delay releasing the conclusions of Micha Lindenstrauss’s investigation to the people. If the report of Olmert’s malfeasance and misfeasance in office is released, will he be kicked out of office and thus defeat the Saudi/Bush Plan?
Another investigative committee called the Winograd Commission which is also due to deliver its report in mid-April on Olmert and Peretz about why the military was not ready for Hezb’Allah’s attack with Iranian Katyusha Rockets, sent through Syria to Hezb’Allah. This investigation has also dragging on for almost six months, particularly since many of its members were appointed by Olmert.
As Moshe Arens said in Ha’aretz March 12th, "What is the world is taking them so long? Is it not clear? Is the writing not on the wall? Don’t they know what just about everybody in Israel knows, that the war was grossly mishandled by the political and military leadership? That the political leadership - Olmert and Peretz, reminiscent of Laurel and Hardy - fell captive to the enticing assumption that the war could be won by air power alone, and they stubbornly stuck to this mindless concept as week after week hundreds of rockets kept falling on the Galilee." (1)
Olmert is a sly, tricky lawyer who has just taken another tack. The Israeli military did have a long standing set of plans to deal with Hezb’Allah and Syria should they attack. Olmert and Peretz fumbled and stumbled, generating losses of lives through their incompetence. Now, lo and behold, Olmert has the Chutzpah to claim that those plans of the IDF (Israel Defense Forces) were "somehow" his. He now takes credit for plans he didn’t formulate, nor understand and did not allow them to be used in substance or in time to save his young soldiers. That is the height of arrogance.
GSS: ISRAELI ARABS ARE EXISTENTIAL DANGER TO ISRAEL (3)
An internal Shabak (GSS - General Secret Service) document says Israel’s Arabs are a long-range strategic danger to Israel’s character and very existence. The GSS believes them to be a greater threat than Iran and its nuclear threat. This is NOT because of an increasing population bomb (the demographic argument has been demolished by the reports of Yoram Ettinger), but because there is increasing solidarity and identification of Israeli-Arabs with Terrorists elements. In 2006, 21 Israeli-Arab Terror Cells were uncovered. They have been spies, smugglers of weapons, rapists who admitted using rape as anti-Israel Terrorism. (3)
But, there is more. The Arab Muslim Palestinians in Gaza, under the advice and guidance of Hezb’Allah, have carved deep bunkers and interconnecting tunnels in Gaza (just as was done in Lebanon by Yassir Arafat under the watch of Ariel Sharon, Olmert and Mofaz for 6 years). These bunkers have been loaded with missiles, explosives and weapons - all coming in through the Sinai Desert, courtesy of Egypt, into Gaza - the latest radical Islamic base for Global Terrorism. Olmert has done virtually nothing in defense as Kassam Rockets are being launched almost daily into Sderot and Ashkelon, as well as other towns and villages in southern Israel.
If Olmert, Rice and the Supreme Court have their way, the entire length and (narrow) breadth of Judea and Samaria will be lined with Katyusha Rockets, within easy reach of Israel’s coastal area, home to 70% of Israel’s civilian population and Ben Gurion’s International Airport. When we warned the government of Israel of the 12,000 to 20,000 missiles lined up in Lebanon, nothing was done pre-emptively to defend the Jewish State. Israeli Intelligence not only knew of the these missiles but, were deeply concerned many had poison gas or chemical warheads. The Israeli government had no interest in the facts and refused even minimal response. If ever a Government warranted a Nuremberg Tribunal, it is the Sharon-Olmert-Mofaz government which has now morphed into Olmert’s Kadima Government - even worse.
What is happening now is a travesty as Olmert uses every trick to stay in power assisted by a corrupt Supreme Court and a dismal failure of the Knesset to simply vote a "No Confidence" motion and close down a Government bent on volunteering the Jewish State into national suicide.
If ever a Nuremberg Tribunal Peoples’ Court was warranted, replete with a judgement of hanging the perpetrators, now is that time.
Everyone seems to have forgotten that the Saudi Plan to divide Jerusalem includes the abandonment of the Jewish Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem - with a tunnel for Jews and tourists to go to the Western Wall. The Saudi Plan also plans re-appropriating the Mount of Olives ancient Jewish cemetery which was ravaged and desecrated by King Hussein of Jordan. The Saudis also demand French Hill, Ramot Eshkol, Gilo areas plus all the other Jewish neighborhoods of Jerusalem that were occupied by Jordan from 1948 to 1967.
Remember! The Saudi Plan was probably originally designed by the U.S. State Department and delivered to the Saudis by Thomas Friedman and was always intended as the threshold death knell for Israel.
WHAT THEN MAY WE CONCLUDE FROM THE EVIDENCE WE CAN SEE?
1. The Bush-Rice regime needs Olmert, Livni and Peres to stay in control of Israeli government policy so they may affix an official U.S. government approval on the Saudi Plan. IF the Israeli subversive wing stays in power, then the U.S. can say: "We support the real government policy in Jerusalem" - even if a huge majority of Israelis do NOT support this Olmert government’s national suicide.
2. This includes, but is not limited to, the evacuation of Judea and Samaria (the so-called "west bank"), dividing Jerusalem - making the eastern half the seat of government for Fatah, Hamas and all the other Terrorist factions. Add to that dire loss of Israel’s sovereignty and security, the surrender of the Golan Heights and the Jordan Valley.
3. The Leftist Supreme Court has agreed to keep Olmert in power until all the above have been de-Judaized and abandoned to the Arab Muslim Palestinians as was done in Gush Katif/Gaza.
4. The Knesset, with encouragement from the Left, refuses to bring down the government, both to keep their own seats and for those of the Left to insure that Olmert will complete the failed terms of the earlier Oslo Accords and the follow-on failed Appeasement Accords.
5. Many have noticed that former PM Binyamin (Bibi) Netanyahu has been almost silent - with the exception of weak attacks on Olmert and the Kadima government. It seems that he wishes the Bush - Rice - Olmert plan of divestment (and disintegration) to be completed before he comes to power. Moreover, he has made statements to the effect that, had he been in power, he too would have negotiated away the same territory that Olmert, Bush and the Saudis call a Peace Plan Road Map...just as he gave way to the Arab Muslims 80% of the Jewish Holy City of Hebron in the Wye Agreement. This is a question that should be put squarely to Netanyahu and NOT allow him to avoid with typical political double-talk. Recall that it was Ariel Sharon who, in his election, ran again Avram Mitznah by pledging to oppose Mitznah’s platform of abandoning Judea, Samaria, all of Jerusalem that Jordan occupied from 1948 to 1967, the Golan Heights and the Jordan Valley. After winning the election Sharon, along with Olmert and Peres, ‘et al’ adopted the Mitznah Oslo platform and organized the brutal Gush Katif/Gaza eviction/expulsion.
6. Bush, having virtually lost the Iraq conflict needs the voluntary sacrifice of most of Israel’s strategic Land to the Arab Muslim Palestinians and the Arab and Muslim nations in order to the leave an historic legacy of fictional "Peace in Our Time - in the Middle East". Sharon was to be the General who initiated the "Judenrein" swap. When he was struck down by crippling strokes, his even weaker replacement, Ehud Olmert, was set up to finish the job. The U.S. State Department, through the Saudis, have floated the "Final Solution of Israel" withdrawing to the pre-1967 Armistice lines which Abba Eban correctly dubbed "The Auschwitz Borders".
This then concludes a brief summation of how the U.S., E.U., U.N. and Russia - The Quartet - have manipulated the National Suicide of the world’s only Jewish State.
