The Sunday (07 March 2010) edition of the Hebrew daily, Ma'ariv, carried this headline, Obama's deputy [Vice President Joseph Biden] brings clear message to Israel: 'Don't attack Iran'"
There was a time, some forty years ago, when such messages would have been conveyed behind closed doors. Indeed, in 1967 and 1973 the Americans tried to bully Israel into eschewing preemptive strikes on the Arabs when clear intelligence indicated an intent to attack and destroy Israel. But the bullying was all done behind closed doors. Now the bullying is open and out in the open, and all the excuse making does not hide the fact that Obama and his sycophants are bullying Israel all the time. This is nothing but a falafel republic, on a lower level even than Lebanon.
When Israel ignored and defied the United States in 1967 it won a stunning victory, conquering the Sinai and liberating Gaza, Judea, Samaria, the Heights of Golan, and of course, unifying Jerusalem. When Israel caved in to American pressure in 1973, it fought desperately for its survival, suffering 2,500 casualties and losing diplomatically everywhere. The world is a cruel place and it stomps on losers. But more to the point, we can clearly see that the American government, no matter what face it puts on to the public to deceive it, is against the State of Israel. Its advice is inevitably a disaster for us.
Nevertheless, the American government cannot be blamed for the stupidity of the Israeli government, or its cowardice in not aggressively protecting the Jewish people from 1972 until today. This is true in spite of the fact that the Americans, through the CFR, the State Department and through the Ford Foundation, have corrupted Israeli institutions from the inside, and a once peaceful and sober society is becoming a land of violent thugs and drunks — just like America, which Israel imitates slavishly. The reason we in Israel cannot blame America is that there is such a thing as free will. One can always say "NO". It is much harder than saying "yes" — it is always harder to do what is right, as opposed to what is easy. But the choice still lies with our leaders, and we Israelis are responsible for the fact that we allow our leaders to commit treason in our name and sacrifice our sons and daughters for "peace", making it such that Israelis literally die to please Americans.
