Keith Johnson–Syria is Just Another War for Israel
American Free Press Newspaper
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.
The Real Culprits Come Out of the Closet
Fearing a public backlash for leading the United States into another foolish military adventure on behalf of Israel, America’s well organized Zionist community made a concerted effort to convince the world that their support for U.S. “intervention” in Syria had nothing to do with their loyalty to the criminal Jewish state.
Every endorsement for war, from every influential Jewish organization in the country, was carefully worded to leave the impression that U.S. Jewry was only concerned about saving innocent Syrian lives, preventing another so-called “holocaust” and fighting for truth…justice… and the American way.
In a statement issued on September 5, the American Israeli Political Affairs Committee (AIPAC) urged
“Congress to grant the President the authority he has requested to protectAmerica’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.”
Notice that AIPAC never addresses Israel’s “national security interests,” only America’s.
In similar fashion, the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, which represents 52 national Jewish agencies, also released a statement on Syria that deliberately omits Israel from the equation.
“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.”
Both the Jewish Council for Public Affairs (JCPA) and the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) have also weighed in on Syria, urging congress to authorize the use of force but making no mention of the Jewish state.
While the JCPA claims that “Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad has proven himself unfit to rule his country,” the RJC suggests that “the use of military force against Bashar Al-Assad’s regime” is in America’s “national interest” to avoid losing its “moral standing and diplomatic credibility.”
Jewish Groups Admit Deceptive Practices
To say that the Jewish community is intentionally colluding to exclude Israel from discussions on Syria is no conspiracy theory.
According to a September 3 article from the Jewish Telegraph Agency, “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.’”
This mind-set was also addressed in a recent article from the Washington Post. “There is a desire to not make this about Israel,” said one pro-Israel advocate, who recently spoke to thePost on the condition of anonymity. “When the administration argues to members of Congress that we should do this for Israel’s sake, that has caused deep discomfort in the Jewish community, regardless of where they stand. Israel didn’t ask the U.S. to do this.”
Others, like Anti-Defamation League (ADL) director Abe Foxman, also admit that influential Zionists have made a conscious effort to maintain a low-profile on Syria for fear that they will be identified as the primary source of bellicose rhetoric against the Assad government.
In a recent article for the Jewish Daily Forward, entitled Jewish Community Cautious as U.S. Attack on Syria Looms Large, Nathan Guttman wrote, “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.’”
The article goes on to say that these “accusations date back to the 2003 American invasion of Iraq,” and that “[s]similar accusations were made in recent years, when discussing America’s options for dealing with Iran’s nuclear ambitions”
A Long History of Jewish American Warmongering
Despite claims made in the Forward piece, all factual research conclusively proves that American Jews played key roles in laying the groundwork for the Iraq invasion.
In a January 25, 2012 essay for Revolt of the Plebs, this American Free Press reporter wrote, “In 1996, Israeli dual citizens Douglas Feith and Richard Perle were both advisors toIsrael’s Likud Party leader Benjamin Netanyahu. During that time, the duo co-authored a policy paper, entitled A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm. In it, they said that Saddam would have to be destroyed, and that Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, and Iranwould all have to be overthrown or destabilized in order for Israel to be truly safe.
“Feith would later become the U.S. Under Secretary of Defense of Policy for the Bush administration. It was through Feith’s Office of Special Plans (OSP) that the Israelis channeled faulty intelligence about Saddam’s so-called ‘Weapons of Mass Destruction.’ These lies led the U.S. Congress to enact the Iraq War Resolution of 2002, which gave George W. Bush carte blanche to wage a bloody conflict that has since claimed the lives of over one million Iraqis and nearly 5,000 American troops.”
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.
As recently as last July, AIPAC issued a video message to its supporters stating “the Islamic Republic casts a dark shadow of hate, terror and oppression in the region….And all the while Iran is racing to build a nuclear weapons capability.”
The video ends with:
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.”
AIPAC is not only the head cheerleader for offensive measures against Iran’s mythical nuclear weapons program; it’s also the chief choreographer.
In a January 2011 article for American Free Press, this reporter wrote, “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.’”
AIPAC continues to push the hard-line on Iran by including it in their recent campaign against Syria.
According to a September 5 article from Politico–
“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.”
“Holocaust” Propaganda Used to Push War on Syria
While some Jewish organizations and politicians make their case for a war on Syria based on illogical national security concerns, others have taken the war propaganda to absurd levels by invoking the ghost of Adolph Hitler and concocting fantastical “holocaust” analogies in an attempt to instill fear in Americans and guilt-trip them into supporting military action.
“Our people have been exterminated by the use of gas,” ADL director Abe Foxman wasquoted as saying in a recent Bloomberg article. “We cannot stand by without a reaction when we see gas being used to kill others.”
Similar language was used by 17 American Rabbis in a recent letter that urged Congress to act on Syria. “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.”
Even Jewish American politicians have gotten in on the act.
“As a Jew, the concept of ‘Never again’ has to mean something,” said Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), a high profile Jewish lawmaker and chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, during a recent interview with CNN.
A more ludicrous statement was made by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry—whose family name is Kohn and is, by Jewish definition and Israel’s immigration laws, a Jew—when he testified before a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on September 3 and relied on fables and hyperbole to justify a military response to the Syrian government’s alleged use of chemical weapons.
“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.”
Historical Inaccuracies and Hypocrisy Dominate War Rhetoric against Syria
Reflecting from the pages of fictional history is a common propaganda tactic deployed by Jews and their puppets when making their case for the war-de-jure. Kerry, Wasserman-Schultz, the legion of American Rabbis and other Jewish leaders are no exception. But are their arguments valid?
For the past two decades, dozens of prominent revisionists featured in the pages of The Barnes Review have thoroughly debunked the “holocaust” legend. More recently, American Free Press’ own Victor Thorn dissected every element of this mythology in The Holocaust Hoax Exposed: Debunking the 20th Centuries Greatest Fabrication.
“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.”
Hitler never used chemical weapons, neither in the battlefield nor against Jews held in re-location facilities. If only America, and its allies, could boast such a clean rap sheet—but it can’t.
Wesley Messamore, writing for Policymic.com, recently compiled a list of “10 Chemical Weapons Attacks Washington Doesn’t Want You to Talk About.”
Messamore begins his piece by stating: “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.”
Here are the ten atrocities listed in the report:
- The U.S. Military Dumped 20 Million Gallons of Chemicals on Vietnam from 1962 – 1971
- Israel Attacked Palestinian Civilians with White Phosphorus in 2008 – 2009
- Washington Attacked Iraqi Civilians with White Phosphorus in 2004
- The CIA Helped Saddam Hussein Massacre Iranians and Kurds with Chemical Weapons in 1988
- The Army Tested Chemicals on Residents of Poor, Black St. Louis Neighborhoods in The 1950s
- Police Fired Tear Gas at Occupy Protesters in 2011
- The FBI Attacked Men, Women, and Children With Tear Gas in Waco in 1993
- The U.S. Military Littered Iraq with Toxic Depleted Uranium in 2003
- The U.S. Military Killed Hundreds of Thousands of Japanese Civilians with Napalm from 1944 – 1945
- The U.S. Government Dropped Nuclear Bombs on Two Japanese Cities in 1945…
War Strategy on Syria is a Jewish Invention
“The Promised Land extends from the River of Egypt up to the Euphrates, it includes parts of Syria and Lebanon,” declared Rabbi Fischmann, member of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, during his testimony to the U.N. Special Committee of Enquiry on July 9, 1947.
In his Complete Diaries, Vol. II. p. 711, Theodore Herzl (1860-1904), the founder of Zionism, says that the area of the Jewish State stretches: “From the Brook of Egypt to the Euphrates.”
Syria has been on the Zionist chopping block for well over a hundred years. During the last thirty plus years, multiple strategies have been drawn up by Jewish tacticians in an attempt to claim Syria as their own.
Oded Yinon, once a senior advisor at the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs, laid out the blueprints for his ambitious plan in a 1982 paper entitled, A Strategy for Israel in the Nineteen Eighties, which identified Iraq and Syria as “Israel’s primary target on the Eastern front,” and called for breaking up both nations “into ethnically or religiously unique areas” and for the “dissolution of the military power of those states.”
Expanding on Yinon’s strategy, eminent Jewish Middle East historian and right-wing Zionist Bernard Lewis suggested that Islamic fundamentalists could serve as an effective tool to accelerate the balkanization process.
“Most of the states of the Middle East— Egypt is an obvious exception—are of recent and artificial construction and are vulnerable to such a process,” wrote Lewis in a 1992 article for Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) magazine Foreign Affairs, entitled Rethinking the Middle East. “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.”
More contemporary strategies drawn up by Zionists include the aforementioned A Clean Break document, prepared under the auspices of Israeli think the Institute for Advanced Strategic and Political Studies, as well as Which Path to Persia?, a 2009 analysis paper produced by Israeli-American billionaire Haim Saban’s The Saban Center for Middle East Policy at the Brookings Institute.
Only Israel Wants War on Syria
People throughout the world are overwhelmingly opposed to a strike on Syria, including those who live in the U.S. government’s most reliable allied nations. A recent survey show that two-thirds of the French people are against U.S. involvement in Syria. And only nineteen percent of British citizens support military action while the vast majority is opposed even if it is proved beyond a doubt that President Bashar al-Assad’s government used chemical weapons on his own people.
In the United States, multiple polls show that most Americans do not want a war with Syria, and U.S. lawmakers are deeply divided on the issue. Even those Americans—who could once be relied on to back any Israeli orchestrated military campaign—are now wary of lending their support.
For decades, AIPAC and America’s evangelical “Christian Zionist” community have been virtually joined at the hip on issues related to U.S. foreign policies in the Middle East. However, in recent days, an overwhelming majority of evangelical leaders have shown an unwillingness to support AIPAC’s latest drive to attack Syria.
On September 3, the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE), which represents tens of millions of Christian Zionists from 45,000 churches and 40 denominations, conducted a survey among its membership to ask: “Should Congress authorize direct U.S. military intervention inSyria?” The result: sixty two-and-a-half percent said no, while only thirty seven-and-a-half percent said yes.
“I was surprised because I expected the answers would be the other way around,” wrote NAE president Leith Anderson in a statement to Religious News Service.
In contrast, a recent poll conducted by New Wave Research shows that most Israelis do want war with Syria. According to Israeli national Hebrew-language newspaper Israel Hayom, “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).”
