Charles Freeman’s Victory Forced to withdraw, he took the Israel lobby down with him

leave a comment »

Is it the beginning of the end for the rightwing Israeli lobby? It is intrinsically tied to the Fed and Wall Street and a myriad of other tentacles: Monsanto? NATO?

When and if the Israeli Lobby goes, then so will our current system of living, we will be in a post Capitalist, Post Globalist, possibly post Judaic world.

The nixing of Charles “Chas” Freeman from a post as head of the National Intelligence Council is not, as is commonly averred, a victory for the Israel lobby. It is, instead, a Pyrrhic victory that is, a victory so costly that it really amounts to a defeat for them. Sure, they managed to keep out a trenchant critic of their Israel-centric and grossly distorted view of a proper American foreign policy, and, yes, they managed to smear him and put others on notice that someone with his views is radioactive, as far as a high-level job in the foreign policy establishment is concerned. And yet and yet .

They the Lobby have now been forced out in the open. “A lobby,” says Steve Rosen, the ringleader of the “get Freeman” lynch mob, “is like a night flower: it thrives in the dark and dies in the sun.” If so, then the Israel lobby is slated for oblivion, because as frenetically and pathetically as they tried to mask the centrality of their involvement, and as much as they tried to make this about other issues (his alleged ties to Saudi Arabia, his supposed views on China), everybody knows it was really all about Israel and Freeman’s contemptuous view of the “special relationship” which requires us giving Tel Aviv a blank check, moral as well as monetary.
