Uri Avnery on Charles Freeman and the Israel Lobby

leave a comment »

gushlogo

THE FULL meaning of this episode should not escape anyone. It was the first test of strength of the lobby in the new Obama era. And in this test, the lobby came out with flying (blue-and-white) colors. The administration was publicly humiliated. The White House did not even try to hide its abject surrender. It declared that the appointment had not been cleared with the President, that Obama had no hand in it and did not even know about it. Meaning: of course he would have objected to the appointment of any official who was not fully acceptable to the lobby. The portrayal of the power of the lobby by Professors John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt, has been fully vindicated.
.
THIS HAS a significance which goes far beyond the already far-reaching implications of the affair itself. Many people in Israel, who view the establishment of the new rightist government with apprehension, cite as their main fear the danger of a clash with the new Obama administration. Such a clash, they believe, could be fatal for Israel’s security. But the rightists deride such arguments. They assert that no American president would ever dare to confront the Israeli lobby. The captive congressmen and senators, as well as the supporters of the Israeli government in the media and even in the White House itself, would sink on sight any American policy opposed by even the most extreme right-wing government in Israel. Now the first skirmish has taken place, and the President of the United States has blinked first. Perhaps one should not rush to conclusions, perhaps Obama needs more time to find his bearings, but the signs are ominous for any Israeli interested in peace. It may be too early to call this episode the Rape of Washington […]
.
It is important for governments and peoples to know that the unconditional support for the Israeli Right does not represent the majority of Jews in the US, the UK and other countries. The Jewish public is far from monolithic. The majority is liberal and believes in peace and human rights. Until now this was a silent majority, out of fear of a repressive establishment. It is indeed “a time to speak out”. I believe that it is in the interest of Israel to support these groups […]

Jewish talk on the net

leave a comment »

A comment left on a post (lost the source):

I heard a phrase of late, that goes something like this:

“It used to be that an ‘anti semite’ was something you called someone who hates ‘Jews’, nowadays, it’s something you’re called when ‘Jews’ hate you!”

.

A listener to Uri Avnery’s speech on March 8th

I was a bit disturbed by the speaker’s apparent definition of ‘post-Zionism’ as meaning what’s happened has happened and it is all water under the bridge now, Israel exists, the Palestinians have been dispossessed and there is nothing we can do about it. This implies that today’s ongoing theft of Palestinian land and resources will also ultimately be (very reluctantly) accepted by the Israel Left as unfortunate ‘facts on the ground’ in more or less the same terms as GW Bush’s famous letter to Sharon. So why have we been struggling all these years if in the end we are going to throw in the towel and say to Israel: we are post-Zionists so everything that you have stolen is now your’s to keep? –source–

The CV of Obama’s Budget Director:
– Advisor, Russian Finance Ministry During the Reign of the Jewish Oligarchs
– Advisor, Central Bank of Iceland — Before the Crash of 2008
– Advisor, Rahm Emanuel and Bill Clinton on the disastrous NAFTA bill that devastated U.S.

Orszag is an economist who served six years in the Clinton administration (1993-8) under Robert E. Rubin, the former treasury secretary who recently resigned from his senior position at the woefully mismanaged and nearly bankrupt Citigroup. The fact that Orszag was a protege of the now disgraced Rubin certainly does not bode well for the Obama administration. –more–
