Will Israel Fall in Five Years?

“The undersigned therefore take this means of publicly presenting a few salient facts concerning Albert Einstein, signatory to Letters to the Editor, New York Times, December 4, 1948.

(TEMPE, Az.) - Online reports of a study by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency cast doubt over the survival of Israel beyond the next two decades. Regardless of the validity of the report, with what is now known about the costs in blood and treasure that the U.S.-Israeli relationship has imposed on the U.S., its key ally, Israel could fall within five years.

For more than six decades, American support for Israel has relied on the ability of pro-Israelis to dominate U.S. media, enabling Tel Aviv to put a positive spin on even its most extreme behavior, including its recent massacre in Gaza. With access to online news coverage, that Zionist bias is becoming apparent and the real facts transparent.

Though Americans seldom show a strong interest in foreign affairs, that too is changing. While few of them grasp the subtleties of one-state versus two-state proposals, many have seen online the impact of a murderous Israeli assault on Palestinian civilians that was timed between Christmas and the inauguration of Barack Obama.

The leaders of the 9-11 Commission acknowledged that its members would not allow testimony on the impetus for that attack. Yet the report confirmed that the key motivation was the U.S.-Israeli relationship. With access to online news, more Americans are asking why they are forced to support a colonial Apartheid government.

With the election of yet another extremist Israeli government led by yet another right-wing Likud Party stalwart, it’s clear that Tel Aviv intends to preclude peace by continuing to build more settlements. With that stance, Israel not only pushed Barack Obama into a corner, it also forced U.S. national security to make a key strategic decision: Is Israel a credible partner for peace? By any criteria, the answer must be a resounding “No.”

That inescapable conclusion leaves Americans with few options. After all, the U.S. is largely responsible for the legitimacy granted this extremist enclave in May 1948 when Harry Truman, a Christian-Zionist president, extended nation-state recognition. He did so over the strenuous objections of Secretary of State George Marshall, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the fledgling CIA and the bulk of the U.S. diplomatic corps.

By December 1948, a distinguished contingent of Jewish scientists and intellectuals warned in The New York Times that those leading the effort to establish a Jewish state bear “the unmistakable stamp of a Fascist party.” Albert Einstein joined concerned Jews who cautioned Americans “not to support this latest manifestation of fascism.”

Only in the past few weeks has the momentum emerged to subject Israel to the same external pressures that were brought to bear against Apartheid South Africa. After more than six decades of consistent behavior—and clear evidence of no intent to change—activists coalesced around the need to boycott Israeli exports, divest from Israeli firms and impose sanctions against Israel akin to those it seeks against others.

The focal point for peace in the Middle East should not be those nations that do not have nuclear weapons but the one nation that does. Absent external pressure, Israeli behavior will not change. Absent pressure—and likely force—applied by the U.S. as the nation that has long enabled this behavior, Colonial Zionism will continue to pose a threat to peace. Occupying powers are not known to voluntarily relinquish lands they occupy. Likewise for their readiness to surrender nuclear arms.

An End to Jewish Fascism?

The key issue need no longer be a subject of endless debate. There must be a one-state solution consistent with democratic principles of full equality. Informed Americans are no longer willing to support a theocratic state in which full citizenship is limited to those deemed “Jewish” (whatever that means). If local birth rates suggest an eventual end to the “Jewish state,” then so be it. Why wait two decades when this nightmare can be drawn to a close in less than five years?

Forget about a return to pre-1967 borders, instead return to pre-1948 borders. Designate Jerusalem an international city under U.N. protection and dispatch multi-national forces to maintain peace. Palestinians should have a right of return, including the ability to recover properties from which they fled under an assault by Jewish terrorists. If Colonial Zionists (aka settlers) want compensation for “their” property, let them seek restitution from the Diaspora that encouraged their unlawful occupation.

Those who consider themselves “Jewish” can remain as part of an inclusive democracy. Or they can depart. Americans must consider how many of these extremists it wants to welcome to a nation already straining under an immigration burden. A reported 500,000 Israelis hold U.S. passports. With more than 300,000 dual-citizens residing in California alone, that state may require a referendum on just how many Zionists it wishes to receive. Likewise for Russia from which many “Jews” fled, including some 300,000 Russian émigrés who support the Likud Party but have yet to be certified as Jewish.

Zionists originally saw Argentina and Uganda as desirable venues to establish their enterprise. They may wish to apply there for resettlement. The question of why Palestinians (or Californians) should bear the cost of a problem created by Europeans six decades ago is one that Tel Aviv has yet to answer except by citing ancient claims that it insists should take precedence over two millennia of Palestinian residence.

By withdrawing Israel’s status as a legitimate “state,” those Jews long appalled by the behavior of this extremist enclave can no longer be portrayed as guilty by association. That long overdue shift in status is certain to benefit the broader Jewish community. By shutting down Israel’s nuclear arms program and destroying its nuclear arsenal, the world can be spared the key impetus now driving a nuclear arms race in the region.

Unless pro-Israelis can create another crisis by inducing an invasion of Iran (or a race war), Americans will soon realize that only one “state” had the means, motivation, opportunity and stable nation-state intelligence required to fix the intelligence that led the U.S. to invade Iraq consistent with the expansionist goals of Colonial Zionism.

Intelligence now working its way to transparency will soon confirm that, but for Zionists within the U.S. government, 9-11 could have been prevented and war in Iraq avoided. To date, this extremism has been enabled by a series of weak U.S. presidents. For the U.S. to restore its credibility requires that it not only lead the effort to shut down the Zionist enterprise but that it also share responsibility for its behavior to date.

Were those WMD's that killed thousands of Iraqi Kurds? Pretty reasonable to assume that they had WMD's because they used them! Gimme a break on this matter, it was the democratic senators (even Ted Kennedy!)during the Clinton Administration that were jazzing up everyone about Iraq and WMD's. This all public record, why not acknowledge it? This weekend I was playing football with a bunch of high school kids who were talking about the above, so it's not a big secret, except for those who don't want to admit this rather serious bit of documented history that is becoming part of the school curriculum put out by enlightened teachers. Some teachers, by the way, are Iraqi and Afghanistan veterans, so this will resonate and grow as they make sure their students know the real story not some ideological revisionism/distractions.

Political analysis and synthesis from such a broad-based intellectual as Jeff Gates encourages us to work with renewed optimism for justice. The initial CIA report as a projection of USrael’s demise in twenty-years based on the trend of attrition, though it was a surprise, seemed dubious just because the source is the CIA. Israeli self-expatriation (defection) back to Europe and the USA is clearly a factor in the demise of the Israel ─ as we know it; Israel will likely flower into a single secular democratic state with full equality, right of return, and reparations for all Palestinians. Due to the disgust and general fear that Israelis feel about their relationship with their neighbors, this trend seems to have wings with rose petals. So to does the refusenik movement in which roughly 40% of the draft-age youth of Israeli have refused to serve in the IDF and chosen prison time, marriage, or religious objection (orthodox Jewish) instead. The refuseniks, as such, serve prison time because they oppose to the policies that Israel imposes upon Palestine; Israel sees this opposition as treasonous. Please take a look at the current Shministim (twelfth-graders) tour of two young refuseniks through the USA. http://www.whywerefuse.org/ Learn how you can bring them to inform your community about the reality in Palestine and Israel. The two refuseniks as high school grads captivated the audience, at Cal State Northridge, with their advanced wisdom and intelligence as applied to their total understanding of the crisis. They deftly refuted the Zionist backers on every point, at times with an urgent plea for reason and sensibility. Yet, as often true with spiritual innovators, the honesty of their compassion, courageous path with heart, and their deep love for both Palestine and Israel stands out, above all.

What a pice of drek this article is... As evidenced by the clear antisemites that are enamored by it... FYI, Jews are not just a religion but also a people or nation if you prefer that word... But then again, somebody who takes Iranian propaganda at its word is hardly to acknowledge that... Without people like you Zionism would never have become an attractive proposition for Jews... First you send the Jews to "Palestine" then you want to kick them out from there too... Well, your problem is that Jewish Israelis no longer need to depend on the goodwill of benefactors for their very survival... You may try to carry out your plan but they will (rightfully) resist... And they were smart enough to make sure that they have the means to deny ANY foe victory...

Editor: Don't talk to people like that here, you are the anti-semite, how dare you?  Hardcore anti-truth crusader are you?  Well, we're not going anywhere and our voice grows by the day.  Pressure your government to back off the settlements and maybe things will work out, but the greed of Israel is about to strike a wall.  The Internet has been the biggest factor.  Prior to this Israel could cloak the abuse of the Palestinian people.  Today it isn't so easy.  Don't call us names because we stand against religious bigotry and hatred.  There is only one race, the human race.  I hope you grow up and that Israel eventually learns to take respobility for its role in the world.  I especially love how you hang the takeover of Palestine on us, what do you mean by "you sent the Jews" anyway?  I was born in 1963, I swear I wasn't there...

“Jewish” (whatever that means).

That's quite simple; it's anyone who was picked on for the past 2000 years by others who defined them as such and hated them for it. It's similar today except that few in the West dare say outright that they hate Jews - it's not fashionable.

Fashions come and go.

Editor: Wrong Brad, not a soul here hates any group over their religion, unlike so many Israeli's in their violent prejudice toward the people of Palestine.  I'm sure your mind does think in terms of fashion and politics but ours do not.  This team of writers publishes truth that is all verifiable.  The jig is up friend, people are all watching Israel and wanting major change.  You accuse and do anything to keep American people from realizing that this is all about forcing Israel to stop murdering Palestinians.  There is nothing more to it. 

Also, you should replace the word "Jew" with Zionist, because that is what this is all about.  There are plenty of Jewish people who don't live and die that several thousand year old "homeland" line.  It should simply be home to any people who live there.

Thanks for a very important article about Israeli fascism, a subject most American media scrupulously avoid. I am enjoying the Salem-News from Ithaca, New York...

RobGMiller September 22, 2009 4:40 am (Pacific time)

It's very difficult to utter words of jewish national conspiracy no matter what the context. Much more poignant than simply stating that the US government, controlled by big Oil and big Arms Manufacturers, manufactured 9-11 and it's ensuing response. This article makes that reality abundantly clear.

How long before salem news puts the lightning SS and death head on your web site. The CIA said Iraq had WMD's and you don't believe that but you believe this report and love it!

Editor: Yeah, the truth is a brutal bitch isn't it JB.  At least you certify yourself in a sentence.  You believe there were WMD's when everyone in the world knows there were not, and you think Israel should have the legal right to trample on an entire culture?  Israel is, quite sadly, a death machine for its neighbors.  I guess if I stole somebody's land maybe I would want to keep pushing what was left of them farther and farther away over the years, into little corners like Gaza, but that would never begin to excuse the theft of the land.  We are supposed to feel sorry for all people JB.  What the Nazi's did was the worst man has seen, but is it that different from a Palestinian family being burned alive in their home by the IDF's illegal white phosporous?  Your comment about the Nazi symbol is stupid and cruel and your infantile thinking explains everything.

Jeff: dont fly in any small planes. I now have your name and will be supporting you best I can. I am not afraid of these people. I am glad you are not either. These zionists have been kicked out of many countries, they even start world wars. Now, they are being found out here, and they are running scared. Be prepared for another false flag attack.

Daniel Johnson September 21, 2009 4:53 pm (Pacific time)

With as many Jewish people as he has on staff, including Rahmbo, I would say that Obama is not going to be the president. Extremely insightful piece Mr. Gates. I've never heard of that particular Einstein letter although I do know E turned down the opportunity to be the first President of Israel.
