Zionist lobby: declare war on Muslim world
President Bush and
Secretary Powell are under zionist lobbyists pressure to declare a global war
against the Muslim world.
By Michael Collins Piper
recent story in The New York Times confirms that a tight-knit group of
Pentagon officials and defense experts outside government is working to
mobilize support for a military operation to oust Iraqi President Saddam
Hussein as the next phase of the war against terrorism. Times writers
Sciolino and Tyler said the group, "which some in the State
Department and on Capitol Hill refer to as the 'Wolfowitz cabal,'"
(after its leader, Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz) has
"largely excluded the State Department.. President Bush and Powell
are facing an uprising among supporters of Israel in Congress who support
the "Wolfowitz cabal."
The Oct. 19 issue of Forward, an influential Jewish weekly, reported that
Rep. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) defiantly declared that "Israel is not
going to be sacrificed for the war on terrorism" and that Brett
Heimov, an aide to Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) had charged that while
"there hasn't been a real selling out of Israel", "they
[Bush and Powell] are waiting for that excuse and it hasn't quite come
yet." Forward also reported that an unnamed House staff member
alleged that the Bush administration is giving Israel "the cold
shoulder" by supporting the establishment of a Palestinian state and
by attempting to build bridges to the Arab and Muslim worlds.
The refusal by Bush and Powell to blame Iraq for the Sept. 11 terrorist
attacks has left Israel's supporters in Congress and in the "Wolfowitz
cabal" scrambling to generate support by both the public and in
government policy-making circles for an all-out attack on Iraq-and then
the remaining Muslim states that Israel perceives to be enemies to its
survival. While the Times report admitted that "Both Powell and Vice
President Dick Cheney have said there is no evidence linking Iraq to the
attacks" of Sept. 11, Wolfowitz and his allies, such as Richard Perle,
a member of the Defense Policy Board, are promoting "the need to turn
to Iraq as soon as the initial phase of the war against Afghanistan and
bin Laden and his organization is over." Amazingly, a two-day series
of meetings of the Defense Policy Board, which included Wolfowitz and
Perle, did not even brief Powell despite the saber-rattling tone
underlying the board's efforts. The Times reported that Powell was
"surprised" and "quite distressed" to learn that the
president's deputy national security advisor, Stephen Hadley, inserted
what was described as "a far-reaching sentence" into a letter
sent to the United Nations Security Council threatening possible action
against Iraq and other nations that Wolfowitz, Perle and their allies are
alleging to be sponsors of terrorism.
What the Times writers did not mention are the following facts about
Wolfowitz and Perle reported by AFP based on the pioneering investigative
work of the late Spotlight correspondent Andrew St. George: Perle is
perhaps the singular driving force behind a closely-knit group (including
Wolfowitz) whose origins in the modern-day national security establishment
go back to the 1970s when Perle was a top aide to the late Sen. Henry M.
Jackson (D-Wash.). Not only was Perle a key "inside" player on
behalf of the Israeli lobby on Capitol Hill, but he also played a critical
part in the selection of a formal body - officially known as "Team
B" - that functioned as a purportedly "independent"
advisory council on intelligence estimates relating to Soviet aims and
capabilities. In fact, the members of Team B were bound by their
determination to make literally every aspect of U.S. foreign policy geared
toward policies that would prove beneficial to Israel. Solid evidence
compiled over the years by a variety of independent researchers in and out
of government indicates that Team B exaggerated Soviet influence. Team B's
purpose in so doing was to advance the theory that Israel was vital to
U.S. defense against the Soviets and that Israel therefore needed vast
infusions of U.S. tax dollars.
Today Wolfowitz and Perle, working with a "war party" connected
to the circles spawned by "Team B," are using the new war on
terrorism to force the military to carry out a geopolitical agenda that
not only represents the interests of a foreign nation - Israel - but which
could also be dangerous to America's interests abroad.
Joining Wolfowitz and Perle as the self-appointed publicist for the
"war party" is Perle's fellow Bilderberg member, William Kristol,
publisher of The Weekly Standard, a "conservative" journal owned
by Rupert Murdoch, a longtime media front man for the allied financial
interests of the powerful Rothschild and Bronfman families and other
patrons of Israel. Wolfowitz, Perle and Kristol propose broadening the
targets of the war on terrorism to include not only Iraq, but also Syria
and Iran - a formula for a global conflagration that would unite over a
billion followers of the Islamic faith against the United States.
According to the BBC (8 Nov.) Secretary Powell has warned of military
action against Iraq after the current campaign in Afghanistan. q
