Last week US Defence Secretary Leon Panetta joined increasing number of Israel-Firsters who have warned Zionist leaders that the UNcountry regime is isolated from the great majority of the 193-member United Nations. However, unlike some of other ‘Friends of Israel’, Panetta did not blame the Zionist regime’s neo-Nazi policies for the isolation but America’s declining influence in the Muslim World.
“It’s pretty clear, at this dramatic time in the Middle East when there have been so many changes, that it is not a good situation for Israel to become increasingly isolated. And that is what has happened,” Panetta told reporters on his military plane on way to Israel.
After meeting Benji Netanyahu and Ehud Barak in Tel Aviv, Panetta also honored Mahmoud Abbas and Salam Fayyad with his presence in the West Bank. After that he flew to Cairo to meet Pentagon’s old friends in the military junta ruling post-Mubarak Egypt.
According to NY Jewish Week (October 3, 2011) Panetta told Zionist regime: “we’ve got your back covered so don’t be afraid to make peace, and don’t attack Iran“.
Leon Panetta reportedly discussed Washington’s ‘wish list’ on Palestinian bid for statehood, Iran’s nuclear program, the regime change in Damascus and how to bring both Turkey and Egypt back to Israeli influence.
Bigots like Panetta, David Petreaus, John Bolton, Hillary Clinton, Joe Lieberman, Netanyahu, Sarkozy, Markel, etc. like people to believe that Zionist regime is isolated as result of the so-called ‘Arab Spring’. However, if one read Israel’s history from objective source – he will find out that the Western project of Jewish homeland in Arab Palestine was never accepted by the Muslim World and non-Muslims in India, Africa and many parts of the world. Israeli state was created by the western colonial powers thru bribery and threats. Israel’s Major-General Danny Rothschild, director of the Institute for Policy and Strategy in Herzliya (Israel) told his audience in London in July 2011: “The Arab Spring is in fact the Islamic Spring“.
Israel’s relations with Turkey, Egypt, Tunisia, Yemen, Jordan, Bahrain, Morocco, UAE, etc. are not based on the public consent but thru the dictatorships and monarchies created by the western colonial powers. Regimes in Israel’s other Muslim Eastern neighbors, i.e. Islamic Iran, Lebanon, Syria and Iraq (under Saddam) refuse to recognize Jewish occupation of Palestine – and therefore, US needs to make regime changes in those countries.
Citizens in Bahrain, Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya are fighting western neo-colonists and their puppet rulers.
However, the western Ziocon warmongers don’t like to accept the reality that wherever western puppet rulers have been toppled in the ME – pro-Islam movements are emerging as the voices of the majority, as is the case in Egypt, Turkey, Tunisia, Lebanon, Iraq, Occupied Palestine and even among the Libyan rebels. For example, Libyan rebel leader, Ali Sallabi, cites Tunisian Islamic leader Rachid Ghannouchi as his inspiration.
Same could be said about Yemen after Ali Abdullah Saleh, Bahrain after the ruling ‘Sheikh dynasty’ and Syria after Bashar al-Assad. Both Bahrain and Yemen have Shia majority and the democratic movements there are lead by clerics and women with hijab. Yemen’s revolutionary leader, hijab wearing Tawakkol Karman just shared this year’s Nobel Peace Prize with two Liberian women.
Turkish President Abdullah Gul hit the nail on head when in an Op-Ed in the New York Times (April 20, 2011) – he wrote that the ‘Arab Spring’ is in fact aimed at Israel.
