The conspiracy to shrink Israel

By Ted Belman  (first published on July 19, 2006)

The Secret War Against the Jews by John Loftus and Mark Aarons was published in 1994. It was sub-titled “How Western Intelligence Betrayed the Jewish People.”

I quote from Deane Rink’s review of this book.

“The modern world begins, the authors suggest, at the end of World War I, when British diplomat/adventurers Jack Philby (father of Soviet spy Kim Philby and legendary Arabist) and Lawrence of Arabia endeavour to unify a bunch of warring Bedouin tribes into nationhood, best represented by Saudi Arabia. Aware that black gold (oil) lies underneath the desert sands, Philby gingerly befriends Ibn Saud, and makes him the first Saudi king. But Philby is not solely interested in empire, even his own British one; he is interested in making money, and forges an alliance with an American intelligence agent in charge of Middle Eastern affairs, Allen Dulles.

By the 1930s, Ibn Saud and Philby are secret supporters of the Nazi rise to political power in Germany, and bring Dulles, a NYC-based corporate lawyer for Sullivan and Cromwell, in on their scheme. It is a triple game driven by their hatred of Zionism and the Jews, motivated by their obsessive seeking of profits, and designed to completely transform the landscape of the Middle East. […] This double-dealing by British and American corporations continues throughout World War II… “

The review continues with a synopsis of events in this war for the next fifty years.

Loftus, in his book, concludes by congratulating the Jews for having won the war.

I think he spoke too soon.

The conspiracy to destroy Israel is clearly reflected in the “peace process”. Prior to the Six Day War, President Johnson, an oil man, told Nasser that he would help him with intelligence and sent the USS Liberty to spy on Israel. Although Israel was confident that it would win handily, no one else was. The victory shocked the world and in the view of the conspirators, had to be undone. So when Resolution 242 was being drafted a few months later, by Under Secretary of State, Eugene Rostow and others, they sought to protect Israel and assure it of secure and recognized borders but they weren’t able to exclude the following. “Emphasizing the inadmissibility of the acquisition of territory by war ..”.

This statement was and is legally and historically erroneous. Territory has always been acquired by war and a distinction has always been made between aggressive and defensive wars. It was bad enough that Israel was created in ’48 with ridiculous borders but it would be a catastrophe if Israel was allowed to retain the lands acquired by the ’67 war and so the conspirators set about cutting Israel down to size.

Israel was caught by surprise in the ’73 Yom Kippur War but still had a few hours opportunity to attack first and Kissinger counseled against it. During the war Kissinger delayed rearming Israel for a number of days as he wanted Israel to get a “bloody nose” first. Nixon prevailed and a massive airlift took place in time. Remember that Europe denied landing and refueling rights to this airlift requiring the US to strong arm Portugal into allowing the same.

When Israel dramatically turned the war around, it was Kissinger who prevented Israel from crushing the Egyptian Third Army or marching on Cairo or Damascus if it so choose. Kissinger argued at the time that in the interests of peace, the Arab’s should be enabled to save face.

On December 17, 1975, Henry Kissinger met with Sadun Hammadi, Iraqi Minister of Foreign Affairs. A transcript of this meeting has been published which discloses Kissinger’s attempts to assuage the concerns of Hammadi.

“Kissinger: I think, when we look at history, that when Israel was created in 1948, I don’t think anyone understood it. It originated in American domestic politics. It was far away and little understood. So it was not an American design to get a bastion of imperialism in the area. It was much less complicated: And I would say that until 1973 the Jewish community had enormous influence. It is only in the last two years, as a result of the policy we are pursuing, that it has changed,

“We don’t need Israel for influence in the Arab world. On the contrary, Israel does us more harm than good in the Arab world [..]

“We can’t negotiate about the existence of Israel but we can reduce its size to historical proportions.

“I don’t agree Israel is a permanent threat. How can a nation of three million be a permanent threat? They have a technical advantage now. But it is inconceivable that peoples with wealth and skill and the tradition of the Arabs won’t develop the capacity that is needed. So I think in ten to fifteen years Israel will be like Lebanon–struggling for existence, with no influence in the Arab world.

“You mentioned new weapons. But they will not be delivered in the foreseeable future. All we agreed to is to study it, and we agreed to no deliveries out of current stocks. So many of these things won’t be produced until 1980, and we have not agreed to deliver them then. [..].

“If the issue is the existence of Israe1, we can’t cooperate. But if the issue is more normal borders, we can cooperate.

“Aide: Your Excellency, do you think a settlement would come through the Palestinians in the area? ‘How do you read it? Is it in your power to create such a thing?

“Kissinger: Not in 1976. I have to be perfectly frank with you. I think the Palestinian identity has to be recognized in some form. But we need the thoughtful cooperation of the Arabs. It will take a year or a year and to do it, and will be a tremendous fight. An evolution is already taking place.

“Aide: You think it will be part of a solution?

“Kissinger: It has to be. No solution is possible without it. But the domestic situation is becoming favorable. More and more questions are being asked in Congress favorable to the Palestinians.”

In the same year according to Eurabia and Prof  Eidelberg’s synopsis of it, the Euro-Arab Dialogue commenced and the Arabs set the conditions for this Euro-Arab symbiosis:

1) European policy would be independent from, and opposed to that of the United States;
2) recognition by Europe of a “Palestinian people,” and the creation of a “Palestinian” state;
3) European support for the PLO;
4) the designation of Arafat as the sole and exclusive representative of that so-called Palestinian people;
5) the de-legitimizing of the State of Israel, both historically and politically, its shrinking into non-viable borders, and the Arabization of Jerusalem.

This became European policy.

Francisco Gil-White thoroughly documents the US role in giving birth to a Palestinian state in his invaluable Understanding the Palestinian Movement

“What is beyond question is that, at least by 1977, the master-pet relationship between the CIA and Hajj Amin’s movement was firmly in place. In 1977, the US was holding high-level secret talks with Hajj Amin’s PLO/Fatah that violated a 1975 agreement with Israel not to do that.[77a]

“In public, US president Jimmy Carter worked very hard to give PLO/Fatah the dignity of a government in exile. The explicit point of Jimmy Carter’s diplomacy was to give international legitimacy to the demand for a PLO state in the West Bank and Gaza, and it was in fact Jimmy Carter who first proposed such a state, with the PLO obediently following about a week later, though up to this point the PLO had loudly rejected the idea of a PLO state in the West Bank and Gaza.[79]

“In 1978, when Israel tried to defend itself from PLO terrorist attacks coming from the PLO bases in southern Lebanon, vigorous US pressure forced the Israelis to back down.[80]

In 1981, against Israeli objections, Ronald Reagan pushed hard for a PLO state in the West Bank and Gaza.[81]

“In 1982-1983 the Reagan administration rushed into Lebanon to protect the PLO from being destroyed by the Israelis, after the Israelis invaded Lebanon once again to protect themselves from PLO attacks against Israeli civilians in the Galilee. The US exerted very strong pressure on the Israelis to back down, and then provided a military safe passage for the PLO so that they could make their new home in Tunis.[82]

“In 1985, certain Israeli politicians, following US wishes, tried hard to advance the political interests of the PLO. In the same year, some Italian politicians who, it has now been established, were part of a covert (pro-fascist) CIA effort in Europe, sacrificed their political careers for the sake of advancing the political image of the PLO against Israel. Meanwhile, Ronald Reagan denied the Holocaust. This was not Reagan’s senility: the entire administration was behind the effort.[83]

‘In 1987-88, the PLO launched the First Intifada in the West Bank and Gaza (though the media pretended it was a “spontaneous uprising”). The US cooperated closely with the effort to blame supposed Israeli brutality for the First Intifada, and to use the accusation as a reason to advance the project to create a PLO state in the West Bank and Gaza.[84]

“In 1989, with Dick Cheney leading the charge, the US began supporting a PLO state in the West Bank as supposedly the “only solution” to the Arab-Israeli conflict.[85]

“In 1991, a critical year, George Bush Sr.’s administration literally forced the Israelis — with threats — to participate in what became the Oslo so-called ‘peace’ process, the purpose of which was to bring the PLO out from Tunis and into the Jewish state, where it would become the government over the Arab population living in the West Bank and Gaza, from which position the PLO has been indoctrinating these Arabs into Hajj Amin’s genocidal ideology, and murdering any Arabs who disagree, as Hajj Amin also used to do.[86]

“In 1994, the same year that Yasser Arafat was given a Nobel Peace Prize (!!), and which saw the debut of the Oslo ‘peace’ process by bringing the PLO into Israel, Bill Clinton’s CIA was training the PLO. This, despite the fact that Arafat’s henchmen were explaining to the Western press, in English, in the same year of 1994, that they would use their CIA training to kill Jews and any Arabs who didn’t like that, in accordance with Hajj Amin’s ideology.[87]

“When Yasser Arafat died, the US enthusiastically endorsed his replacement Mahmoud Abbas (alias Abu Mazen), who, like Yasser Arafat, has always shared Hajj Amin’s ideology and therefore wishes to exterminate the Jewish people.[88]

“What is clear from all this is that the US the EU and the Arab League are supporting the PLO in its efforts to cut Israel down to “historical proportions” as promised by Kissinger some thirty years ago. In effect they condone terror as a means to bring this about.

“Many friends of Israel believe, and for good reason, that Israel can’t resist the combined onslaught of these forces and should give in to the inevitable and salvage what it can. Sharon and Olmert both came to this conclusion and so “disengagement” and “realignment” were born.

“Die-hards are entitled to ask whether such a policy will lead to real peace or Israel’s destruction. Kissinger himself forecasted that “in fifteen years Israel will be like Lebanon–struggling for existence…”

“So long as the US and the EU remain committed to the goal of returning Israel to the pre ’67 borders I don’t see how Israel can hold out.”

But the times they are achanging.

What is necessary is for the US to come to the conclusion that the creation of Palestine is not in its interest. The increasing influence of Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas and the Brotherhood are not just a threat to Israel but to America and her “friends” Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia too. This is recognized by all. So I don’t see a Palestinian state being created for years, if ever.

Because of this threat, Israel has a window of opportunity to chart its own course. Israel should enlarge Jerusalem and start building in E1. The US is too weak now and must hold the line against the Jihadists.

Accordingly I doubt it will seriously pressure Israel.

  1. @Ted While I found much in the Loftus book credible, I found it hard to reconcile his implication of LBJ in the Liberty incident with this article:

    Loftus relied heavily on Seymour Hersh’s book, “The Sampson Option” and the testimony of retired spies, as did Hersh. So, I’m a little skeptical. I mean these people lie for a living and often have fluid allegiances.

    The Wikipedia on Hersh’s book says he relied heavily on the word of Ari Ben-Menashe and the Wikipedia article on him leaves me not knowing what to think about this character.

  2. @Ted I found much in the Loftus book credible but I found it hard to reconcile what he says about LBJ with what this article says. I am mindful that much of his information comes from interviews with old spies and how reliable can that be? Also, I haven’t finished the book, yet, but I did read the chapter on the LIberty and he didn’t say LBJ sent the spy ship but a tiny faction of the NSA and that when Israel reported what it was doing to the Americans and said it was going to sink it, the Americans didn’t provide air cover for the ship and let Israel sink it.

    “On June 2, 1967, three days before the Six Day War erupted, the Liberty had been
    taken over by a special three-man civilian crew from the NSA, picked up at Rota,
    Spain. The senior officer among them was known to the ship’s crew simply as “the
    Major,” and only he and his men had access to the supersensitive communi-
    cations areas in the hull.?? This confirms what our sources among the “old spies”
    told us: The ship was on a secret mission for the NSA, about which the navy nei-
    ther had understanding nor control.??

  3. Ted, I have read this several times and it’s excellent in help us to see what is happening. Your article “Christians, Jews and Muslims” is as up to date as it was the first time, I read it. Mr. Zorn will be proud to learn that you’re a prophet of truth, considering it was first published in 2005. Wow!

  4. Part of the public Ignorance concerning these attacks against Israel can be ascribed to general suppression of 20th century history in general.There are many blank spots in this story due to these historical suppressions.
    I first became aware of these dead spots in official histories after reading ‘The Anglo American Establishment And Tragedy & Hope by Professor Carroll Quigley & Conjuring Hitler by Guido Preparata.As well as some of the books by Antony Sutton.
    After that I understood that most of what I had previously read were complete fabrications & lies

  5. Very illuminating. Thanks for shedding light on exactly who Kissinger was. I always knew that despite being Jewish, he was no friend to Jews or Israel. But seeing this transcript made me cringe. So many nasty American leaders, past and present.

  6. @Peloni
    Your treasure trove of articles produced about 3 that were missing on Israpundit. I have now reposted them.
    Thanks a million.
    Are there any in 2006?

  7. @Sebastien
    Bravo! Well done.
    There is a link at the top which allows you to list the articles by date. Just FYI.

  8. @Ted You’re welcome.

    I googled DuckDuckGo and went to that uncensored search engine. I entered the title of the article and your name and it came right up.

    This site has many of your articles but random. I tried searching within the site but that was even worse; they all began in 2014.

  9. @Sebastien.
    Love you.
    How did you find a copy of it?
    Doc posted a lot of my articles but I had forgotten his name.
    Can you see whatever of my articles he posted in that period?

  10. @Peloni
    I made a mistake in 2006 and lost all by databank of articles for most of that year and perhaps some of 2005.

    I have been able to post many of my articles from that period by getting them from American thinker and INN and reposting them.

    One article they didn’t have was Whatever Saudis want, Saudis Get.
    Daniel Greenfield in one of his articles referred to it as “a great article”. Unfortunately I cannot find it.

  11. @Peloni. Thanks.
    Everything that the US and Europe demand of Israel regarding the preservation of the TSS are in compliance with their commitments to the Arabs asset out in this article.

    In short, both promised the Arabs that they would shrink Israel and support the Palestinian cause and narrative.

  12. @Ted

    This truly was one of the many gems among your writings.

    An important context to add to this excellent essay is the perspective of the Pals, themselves. Many will recall the 1977 statement by Zahir Muhsein, Palestine Liberation Organization executive committee member, when he stated that

    The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct ‘Palestinian people’ to oppose Zionism. For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.

    As Golda Meir noted nearly a decade prior to this, the Palestinians are in fact an invented people. It served the interests of the West and the Pals themselves to draw this unhistoric apparition into the modern narrative, diminishing Israel, while creating this golem from fake claims supported by false friends.

    It is interesting how this long this Palestinian civilization has been held in place by the creative fake news Western narrative, but times they are a changing, and if self interest is what created the Pals from whole cloth, might it not also be self interest that relegates this invented people back into the ether from which it was borne? Perhaps…but time will tell…

  13. This is a religious problem first and foremost.

    The Holocaust was taken in stride by the majority because “God was punishing the Jews” – nothing new about that, right?

    However, the creation (recreation) of the Jewish state in the Holy Land was a huge blow to Christianity (at least) and to those brought up in that 2,000-year old tradition, even though no one talks about it.

    This explains most of the efforts aimed at Israel’s destruction.

    Looking at the situation objectively – the whole “problem” is artificially created and utterly ridiculous considering all the new states that have been created out of nothing in the last century and a half, and none of these caused an upheaval such as the so-called Israel-Arab conflict which can, allegedly, be solved only by cutting up Israel’s tiny territory and creating another (24th?) Arab state out of it.

  14. The Anglo Saxon WASP part of the hate Israel in Britain is Fading as the Russians are destroying the British Domination of Global Finance.
    So now it is one half of the Anglo American Establishment disappearing as a big threat to Israel.
    Now we have the Rockefeller poodle,Kissinger, too old to get involved. My opinion,Israel should take care of business & get friendly with the Russians,The Indians & the Orient & The W.A.S.P Jew haters on both sides of the Atlantic can go to hell.
