Our “Great Ally” Israel

Our “Great Ally” Israel

‘Israel deserves no allies, least of all the United States’

By Charles Coughlin – EURO

We have all heard our cowardly politicians claim that Israel is a “great ally” of the United States. Well, let’s take a critical look at that claim. Right this minute the United States is engaged in a war with Iraqi and Afghan rebels, who want us out of their countries. The US initially scoured the planet from Micronesia to Mongolia looking for any nation that would send a platoon of soldiers to Iraq in exchange for “who knows how much” foreign aid. The one nation with a well-trained military, which has been endlessly proclaimed a “great ally” by most of our politicians and which isn’t helping at all, is Israel.

Naturally the apologists for Israel will loudly proclaim that if Israel sent troops into Iraq, it would make things worse. Well, if Israel is hated that much by the Arab world and if we want to continue occupying Arab states, then maybe we should dump any association with Israel. After all, if not letting Israeli troops participate is “good” then not associating with Israel is “better.” If someone suggested this to one of our blowhard politicians, he would no doubt be cut off from any further questions and branded an “anti-Semite” simply for using logic.

Our relationship with Israel is full of double standards and unanswered questions. It seems the US is willing to go to war to defend Israel, but if the US were attacked by China, Israel would be the first to declare it’s neutrality. If Israel is such a great ally, then why do we routinely find Israeli spies in the Pentagon? Why did Jonathan Pollard steal a room-full of top secret documents? How many secrets have the Israelis sold to Red China? One website devoted to US strategic interests reports “The U.S. is cutting off financial and technical assistance for an increasing number of weapons development projects done in cooperation with Israeli companies. These include the F-35 aircraft, the Arrow 2 anti-ballistic missile and the Tactical High Energy Laser project. The United States is not happy with the degree to which Israel is selling American military technology to China. Israel has received hundreds of billions of dollars in military aid from the United States over the years, and a lot of that was in the form of military technology that Israel was allowed to use as a basis for developing additional weapons and equipment. But Israel had to agree to safeguard the underlying American technology secrets. Israel has not been doing this with China, which is notorious for stealing technology any way it can. Israel and China say that U.S. tech is not being shipped to China. American intelligence agencies and the Pentagon say the Israelis and Chinese are lying.”

And let’s not forget the times the Israelis have tricked or betrayed us. In the 1950s, the Israelis carried out the Lavon Affair in which American establishments were bombed in Egypt in an attempt to sour US-Egyptian relations. In 1967, the Israelis mass-murdered 34 Americans on the USS Liberty in a deliberate attempt to sink that ship. Five out of six communication frequencies were jammed during the attack. The Israelis only stopped killing Americans when an aircraft carrier sent Americans planes to defend the Liberty. In the 1980s, the Israelis set up a radio station in an apartment in Libya to send out false radio communications which tricked President Reagan into bombing Libya. A cabal of Zionist neocons in George W. Bush’s administration manufactured fake intelligence to convince Congress that we had to go to war with Iraq.

And what sort of nation is Israel? Why do our politicians so fanatically support them? Only a short time ago the Israelis murdered an American peace activist, Rachel Corrie, and a Briton. Neither the US nor British government condemned Israel for these atrocities. Israel has frequently tortured prisoners and at least once their Supreme Court approved the use of torture. Israel has dozens of UN resolutions condemning it for crimes against humanity and other offenses. And this does not count the dozens of times the US has blocked resolutions against Israel. Young women often from eastern Europe are lured to Israel with legitimate-sounding job offers and then are turned into sex slaves. One news article reports “A special Knesset committee finds that “3,000 women are sold each year in Israel’s sex industry, in transactions with an annual volume of $1 billion.” Exploitation of sex workers includes imprisonment, and other forms of rank coercion.” (There has been recent speculation that Natalee Holloway may have been abducted and sold into sex slavery. If this did happen, Israel is a likely destination.)

The Israelis have no real friends. They coerce our politicians through their powerful AIPAC lobby and the threat of bad press from the Jewish-controlled media. All our problems in the Middle East can be traced back to Israel and their treatment of Palestinian natives. The Israelis have killed Americans. They have tricked the US into attacking Muslim nations based on false information. They have one of the biggest sex slavery rings in the world. They horribly abuse the natives of Palestine. Israel deserves no allies, least of all the United States.
