CAIR and other Muslim bootlickers have complained that
they were not allowed to speak at the April 30 Darfur
Rally although their names were on the list of supporters.

WHAT's Behind the Soaring Gas prices in America?
The corporate media are coming up with all kinds of
stories, blaming the oil companies, blaming the oil
producers, the Left saying this will fatten Cheyney
and Bush, etc. The reality is staring them in the
face but they won't admit it. Here it is:
1. 18.4 cents on EVERY GALLON sold at the pump is Federal Tax.
2. Another 5 to 12 cents is State tax.
Thus the government is getting a big chunk of the
money being paid at the pump. This money is desperately
needed by the Federal Government for the war in Iraq
which is costing more than $1 billion a week, and for
Katrina and related disasters. Afghanistan too is
costing $300 million plus every month.
Every state needs money for Homeland Security.
Thus the American people are indirectly paying for
the WAR in the name of high gas prices.

<>Darfur Rally Analysis: Big Flop Even Though Jews
Across America Put in all they Had
The April 30 rally in front of the Capitol in
Washington, DC to urge intervention by the U.S.
in Sudan was a total flop and a disaster for the
Jewish elites of America. The extent of the failure
can be guaged by the fact that Jewish groups brought
people from 41 states but the maximim number of
people in the rally stayed well below 10,000. In
fact that number is touted only by the supporters
of the rally; the rest say it was about 5 to 7 thousand.
Is it an exaggeration to say that it was a Jewish
rally? Judge for yourself. Some of the most
prominent speakers were:
1. Elie Wiesel.
2. Rabbi Schneir.
3. Rabbi Davis Seperstein
4. Rabbi Gutow.
5. David Rubenstein [the organizer of the rally]
6. Ruth Messinger [American Jewish World Service.]
7. Rep. Tom Lantos [self-styled "Holocaust survivor."]
8. Yeshiva University students.
9. A rabbi [early in rally] whose name we couldn't catch.
Camp followers of the Zionist propaganda machine:
1. John Prandergast [calling for immediate intervention]
2. Samantha Power [with her cleavage showing]
3. Clooney father and son.
1. Barak Obama, D-IL, who has fooled many a Muslim,
including WD's group who put his photo on their
front page along with that of Bush.
[Obama quoted from the Bible and repeated all the
Zionist propaganda about Darfur, including 2,000,000
homeless, a total fabrication, rape, stories
concocted by rebel groups.]
2. Al-Sharpton. All Al wants is Jewish support in New York.
3. Corzine, the Governor of New Jersey. He called
for "no fly zones" over Sudan and induction of 20,000
troops in Darfur! Iraq's 'liberation" is a model for him.
1. James Zogby was there, in his suit and tie
and dark glasses. Our observer was outraged that
while Jews are killing Palestinians on a daily
basis, and have desecrated the sacred shrines of
Christianity, this "slick b..t.rd," was there
supporting the Jewish rally.
[We wanted to delete the expletive altogether
but our observer says, this man has been really
betraying Arabs and Christian Palestinians.
Mr. Zogby is welcome to answer.]
NEGLIGIBLE BLACK SUPPORT:
There were few African-Americans in the rally. Most prominent were;
1. NAACP leader Kwezi Mfume. Wants 20,000 troops to be sent to Darfur.
2. Lt. Gov. Michael Steele of Maryland. He recently
visited Israel and desperately wants votes from the
Pikesville area of Baltimore. He is that odd phenomenon
known as "Black Republican" somewhat like a 'Muslim homosexual.'
3. Poor Joe Madison was the MC. His condition is
indeed pathetic. He fought hard and long against
'slavery in Sudan.' When that 'slavery' story turned
out to be fabricated, he continued his campaign against
Sudan without admitting the gross error he had made.
He is sort of a fatherly figure who cracks silly jokes
and carries on his "crusade" against Sudan
4. Last but not least was Simon Dang, who is presented
by the Zionists as a former "child slave" from Sudan.
Ever heard of a slave who is better fed than most
Africans, quite plump, speaks better English than
most Africans and has been on a trip across America
to highlight his "suffering!"
Most of the speakers praised the Bush administration.
David Rubenstein, the organizer of the Darfur rally
claimed that "I was inspired by Bush." Most shocking
was Barak Obama who praised the Bush adminstration's
Sudan moves but urged that Bush "should do more."
The CAT was LET OUT OF the BAG by a representative
of the State Department who pointed out obliquely
that the Bush administration cannot do more right
now because even the European countries do not
agree with America's Darfur assessment.
Prof. Sami al-Arian Ordered to Stay for
another Year and a half in Prison
On May 1, 2006 a judge in Florida ordered that
long-suffering Palestinian activist Sami al-Arian
spend another year and a half in prison before
being deported. Earlier the professor had been
cleared of all the major "terrorism" charges and
had copped a plea on one minor count to be able
to be deported without further court proceedings.
What a joke justice has become for Muslims in America.
A man who has never opposed the Bush administration,
has spent 36 months in prison because he opposes
Israel's policies [not Israel itself]. And now he
won't even be deported right away but has to
stay on in a cell.
In such situations, prisoners often break down and
start praising the oppressors in the hope of a
little mercy. Prof Al-Arian has been issuing
statements praising the U.S. justice system. How
sad that the victim is reduced to this condition.
The Jews are really in control here: no shame or
decency left in the power structure.
MASOUD KHAN's APPEAL COMING UP at the end of May, 2006
Readers might remember this Pakistani American who
was victimized by the Ashcroft "justice system."
Owing to its new relations with India, the American
government dug up the "Neutrality Act" to sentence
this innocent young man to LIFE in prison! Can you
believe that? One who has NEVER carried out an act
of violence against anyone, always considered himself
a friend of America, was sentenced as a member of the
mythical "Virginia Jihad Network!"
How did come about? The government "broke" one of
Masoud's friends, a Korean Muslim who had been taken
into their HOME by the Khan family as part of their
family. Thus, as we noted in other cases, THE
INFORMANT played a key role in the conviction and
sentencing of a decent, innocent, middle class Muslim.
Brave Sweden Refuses to Take Part in Joint
Military Exercises with Israel.
Israel Accuses it of "Anti-Semitism!"
Excerpts from Israeli paper Haaretz of April 27
[Courtesy A-Awda Yahoogroups.]
Sweden called off its participation in international
air force exercises to take place in Italy next
month because of the involvement of the Israel
Air Forces in the drills.
Sweden was supposed to send nine aircraft to Italy for Volcanex 2006.
"Israel is not currently acting in the name of peace,
and therefore, it should not take part in the
demonstration," senior officials in Stockholm said.
A Swedish Foreign Ministry official said, "The point
of the operation is to prepare for international
cooperation in preserving world peace. The
participation of the Israeli air force changes
the prerequisites of the drill."
... Swedish Defense Minister Leni Bjorklund said
that her country is withdrawing because of the
participation of "a state that does not take part
in preserving international peace."
One government source said, "The lack of sympathy
for Israel in Sweden is out of proportion. Some
government ministers spearhead the most anti- Israel
approach in all of Europe, and particularly in
Scandinavia. In meetings between senior Israelis
and Swedish ministers, the Swedes refuse to
listen to Israel's positions."
National Religious Party Chairman MK Zevulun
Orlev, called Sweden's decision anti-Semitic,
saying, "Just a day after the commemoration of
Holocaust Remembrance Day, an enlightened nation
has risen and surrendered to the Islamic axis of evil."

MOHAWK NATIONS vs CANADA: Injustice Continues to this Day
From: Orakwa International Indigenous Ent.
This is long. But it shows us how to decipher
corporate media stories about us.
Kahentinetha Horn MNN Mohawk Nation News
SIX NATIONS: MACHIAVELLIAN GHOSTS HAUNT CANADIAN MEDIA
MNN. April 23, 2006. The Canadian media continues
to deliberately distort what's happening at Six Nations.
The law and British guarantees to protect our land are
completely on our side. We want to show just how tricky
and deceptive the corporate media is. Let's go through
the editorial published in the Montreal Gazette on
April 21st 2006, the day after the police raid on
the Six Nations at Caledonia.
Their heading was, "Enforce the law for natives,
too. Authorities are chronically terrified to deal
with native truculence and belligerence."
We agree with the first part. The law should
be enforced on behalf of Natives too. That's
what this demonstration is about. Canada has
laws against theft and fraud. We want Canada
to obey those laws. Why is it alright to steal
our land? Why do they call us "truculent and
belligerent" when we try to live by the law?
Why are the authorities afraid? We haven't
attacked them. They surround us with guns,
bullets, pepper spray, tasers, M-16's, ambulances
ready to ship us to the hospital and body bags to
put us in when they drive us to their morgues.
Who is being belligerent? We have no weapons.
We have not made any threats. We are sitting on
our land. If they are afraid, it must be of their
own ugly faces in the mirror and shadows on the
ground. All that weaponry in their hands is
not a pretty sight.
The Gazette says we have been "illegally occupying
a subdivision construction site". Since when is it
illegal to sit on one's own land? This is a
deliberate attempt to defame us. Such as their
claim "In the Alice-in-Wonderland world of native
policy…nobody really expects the laws to be
applied to aboriginals as it is to everyone else."
Yes, why don't we get the same benefit of the law
as everyone else? Why aren't we considered innocent
until proven guilty? Why is it still open season
on "Indians"? Why, in 2006, more than 50 years
since Canada supported the Universal Declaration
of Human Rights, are we being vilified in the
Canadians don't have to obey American laws when
they are not in the United States. The British
don't have to obey French laws when they are in
England. Why are we treated different? We aren't
Canadians. We have our own jurisdiction and
Britain promised to protect it. Every time we
have tried to present our case in a neutral
tribunal Canada has refused to participate. It
has done everything to avoid respecting the
promises made by Britain. Colonialism is supposed
to be dead and gone. But Canadian officials
continue to conspire to stop us from getting justice.
It's not as if we haven't tried to get justice
before. We had a lot of international support at
the League of Nations in the 1920's. Canada's
response? It officially deposed our government,
denied us access to our trust funds, set up a puppet
band council regime and passed laws to prevent us
from hiring lawyers to fight our case. What's
legal about that?
Of course, Canada could not legally depose our
government. No more than the Nazi's could depose
the legitimate government of France in World War
II. Our legitimate government was and always has
been by and for our people according to the
Kaianereh'ko:wa. Our traditional Confederacy
government always continued. Canada only persuaded
a tiny minority to vote in their puppet elections.
Now they can't find enough puppets to fill a band
council. The Six Nations Indian Act band council has
now publicly decided that Six Nations land claims
should be dealt with by our traditional government.
The Gazette never mentioned that.
That editorial was meant to defame us and our
legitimate struggle to hold onto our assets, to
right injustices and to exercise our right to
self-determination. The Gazette did not do any
research or competent reporting. It did not explain
the legal basis of the Women's trust responsibility
for the land, the reason why we are standing up.
The Gazette trotted out a bunch of trite and hackneyed
insinuations. It outright lied, declaring that,
"There's not much real evidence" of "legitimate land
claims rooted in historic complaints". What? Check
out the League of Nations Archives or Canada's own
National Archives [watch it get burnt down suddenly!].
The latter includes a 1952 memo by the national
archivist, A.E. St. Louis. When he was ready to
retire, he decided to put his shock over the
mistreatment of the Six Nations people on record.
There is a ton of work by accredited scholars.
Sydney L. Harring stated that a substantial proportion
of the litigation in Upper Canada courts concerned
Six Nations land.
Our ancestors hired the best lawyers available.
But we still couldn't get justice from a system
that was all too willing to accommodate illegal
squatters and dip into our trust funds. More recent
research includes Brian Titleys' book, "A Narrow
Vision: Duncan Campbell Scott and the Administration
of Indian Affairs in Canada". In the 1970's the late
Sally M. Weaver received a Canada Council grant to
research the Six Nations situation. Her findings
were upsetting and never published. They lie hidden
in the Doris Lewis Rare Book Room at the University
of Waterloo. Royal commissions and other official
studies have been done time and again. They all show
that the Six Nations have been defrauded. The Law
Society of Upper Canada and McGill University borrowed
from our trust funds and never paid it back. If Canada
believes in the rule of law, why doesn't it do the
The Gazette stated that, "courts have been consistently
generous, many say too generous – in accepting native
arguments". What judgments are they talking about? To
date our arguments have been almost universally ignored,
misunderstood or misrepresented. Naturally many might
say the courts have been" too generous" – especially if
they've relied on the Gazette for their information. With
such biased media shaping public opinion, no wonder people
imagine that we're a gang of hoodlums.
It's obvious that yellow press, like the Gazette, is
deliberately trying to create the impression that we
are a bunch of uneducated criminals. They can't do
this by showing pictures of us beating anyone up.
They do heavily cover trials where it is 'proven'
that we did something 'violent' when we defended
ourselves from armed attacks. But they can't plant
violent images in their readers' minds.
The Gazette editorial said: "Ask yourself this:
in a province deeply concerned about crimes, gangs,
and gun violence, would any other ethnic or cultural
group be allowed to shut down a legal construction
site for 52 days and counting"? Notice that it didn't
actually say that we had guns or gangs or did anything
violent. It couldn't because we aren't. It just
inserted these images into the middle of its
statement about us.
Every time people read about "Natives" they see
something about crime, guns and violence. They
get conditioned. They start to think that "where
there's smoke, there must be fire". That's how they
keep the old missionary stereotypes alive. They
could steal our land. They could kill us. They could
steal our children, because God was on their side.
They want you to keep on thinking that they are
"civilized" and we aren't.
ISRAEL'S "RAT PACK" IN WASHINGTON:
Scholarly Explanation of how the
Israeli Stranglehold on America Works
by Edward Miller, San Rafael, California
[New Trend exclusive from our veteran writer
and famous activist for peace]
"Thanks to John Mearsheimer and Steven Walt, the
issue of the Israel Lobby is out in the open and
being debated and may it never be put back into
the bottle. Many problems still remain, of course.
Getting the Zionists out of the movement
would be a good start."
Jeff Blankforrt, columnist
Recently, two distinguished professors, John Mearsheimer
Professor of Political Science at Chicago University,
and Stephen Walt http://www.lrb.co.uk/contribhome.php?get=walt01
Professor of International Affairs at the Kennedy School of
Government at Harvard, teamed up to publish an in-depth and
critical study of the history and political influence of
AIPAC, the Israeli lobby. ( available on the web at:
Their study, which I briefly summarize here, shows Israel
as our largest annual recipient of direct economic and
military assistance, a total since World War II, of
well over $140 billion (in 2004 dollars). The $3 billion
assistance each year, is worth $500 for each Israeli.
Washington also provides Israel with diplomatic support,
and since 1982, has vetoed 32 Security Council
Resolutions critical of Israel. ...
According to our General Accounting Office,
Israel "conducts the most aggressive espionage
operations against the US of any ally" . In
addition to Jonathan Pollard, a new controversy
erupted in 2004 when it was revealed that key
Pentagon official, Larry Franklin had passed
classified information to an Israeli diplomat.
Israel's willingness to spy on its principal
patron casts further doubt on Israel's strategic
value. Founded as a Jewish state, Israel treats
its 1.3 million Arabs as second-class citizens...
The creation of Israel in 1947-48 involved acts of
ethnic cleansing, including executions, massacres
and rapes by Jews. During the first Intifada, the
IDF distributed truncheons to its troops to break
the bones of stone-throwing Palestinians.
The response to the second Intifada has been
even more violent, leading Haâaretz to declare
that "the IDF : is turning into a killing machine."
Since then, for every Israeli lost, Israel has killed
3.4 Palestinians, the majority innocent bystanders .
Yitzhak Shamir, a terrorist and later prime minister,
once declared that "neither Jewish ethics nor Jewish
tradition can disqualify terrorism as a means of combat."
The Study reports that Jewish Americans have
set up an impressive array of organizations to
influence American foreign policy, of which AIPAC
is the most powerful. ..That Lobby includes prominent
Christian evangelicals like Gary Bauer, Jerry Falwell,
Ralph Reed and Pat Robertson, as well as Dick Armey
and Tom DeLay. Another source of the Lobby's power
is its use of pro-Israel congressional staffers,
who are in a position to make decisions for the
senators they "serve".. . ... The core of the
Lobby's influence in Congress is its ability to
reward legislators and congressional candidates
who support its agenda, and punish those who
challenge it... Anyone seen as hostile to Israel
can be sure that AIPAC will direct campaign
contributions to his or her political opponents.
AIPAC also organizes letter-writing campaigns and
encourages newspaper editors to endorse pro-Israel
candidates. The bottom line is that AIPAC, a de
facto agent for a foreign government, has a
stranglehold on Congress. Thus one of the three
main branches of our government is firmly committed
to supporting Israel. As former senator, Ernest
Hollings, noted on leaving office, " you can't have
an Israeli policy other than what AIPAC
gives you around here."
The Lobby also has significant leverage over
the executive branch. Although Jews make up
fewer than 3 per cent of the population, they
make large campaign donations to candidates
from both parties. The Washington Post estimated
that Democratic presidential candidates "depend
on Jewish supporters to supply as much as 60
per cent of their money, (which explains why
Nancy Pelosi felt it necessary to pledge
allegiance to AIPAC just after she assumed
the Democratic leadership.)
AIPAC's perspective prevails in the mainstream media.
Journalist Eric Alterman lists 61 columnists and
commentators who can be counted on to support Israel
reflexively and without qualification. To discourage
unfavorable reporting, the Lobby organizes
letter-writing campaigns, demonstrations and
boycotts of news outlets whose content it
One CNN executive said he sometimes gets 6000
email messages in a single day complaining about
a story. In May 2003, the pro-Israel Committee for
Accurate Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA)
organized demonstrations outside National Public
Radio stations in 33 cities; it also tried to
persuade contributors to withhold support from
NPR until its Middle East coverage became more
sympathetic to Israel. Boston's NPR station, WBUR,
reportedly lost more than $1 million in
contributions as a result.
Pro-Israel forces have established a commanding
presence at the American Enterprise Institute,
the Brookings Institution, the Center for Security
Policy, the Foreign Policy Research Institute,
the Heritage Foundation, the Hudson Institute,
the Institute for Foreign Policy Analysis and the
Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA).
Silencing critics by organising blacklists and
boycotts - or by suggesting that critics are
anti-semites - violates the principle of open
debate on which any democracy depends.
In exposing the details of AIPAC performance,
Professors John Mearsheimer http://www.lrb.co.uk/contribhome.php?get=mear01
and Stephen Walt http://www.lrb.co.uk/contribhome.php?get=walt01
have made a significant contribution towards a more democratic
America. AIPAC's backlash will, hopefully, not unduly affect
their distinguished careers. Writer Gabriel Ash recently
pointed out that the Israel Lobby is a dedicated network
of a half dozen or so major organizations, about 60 smaller
ones, and at the grassroots level, in key cities, a couple
of hundred community relations councils and federations,
and several thousand synagogues.
Bringing democracy to Iraq has proved to be
an increasingly dangerous and expensive process
so let's re-examine how AIPAC's "Rat Pack" and
others have lead Bush and congress down the road
into the present political and economic catastrophe.
The Bush crusade to seize Iraq might been driven in
part by Cheney's oil friends. The SF Chronicle (10
Mar 2003 ) reported a company tied to our Vice
President had already won a Pentagon contract "for
advice on rebuilding Iraq oil fields after a
possible war". A more likely but hidden impetus
behind Bush's War was revealed in the March/April
2003 magazine, MOTHER JONES, by investigative
reporter Robert Dreyfuss who said the United States"
has steadily been accumulating military muscle in the
Gulf, building bases, selling weaponry and forging
military partnerships. Now, it is poised to consolidate
its might in a place that will be a fulcrum of the
world's balance of power for decades to come. At a
stroke, by taking control of Iraq, the Bush
administration can solidify a long-running strategic
design." Dreyfuss quoted James Akins, former US
diplomat and once ambassador to Saudi Arabia: "It's
the Kissinger Plan," said Akins. "I thought it had
been killed, but it's back." According to Akins, the
plan to seize Arab oil was initiated in 1975 in a
series of well-placed articles in such magazines as
Harpers, Business Week, and Commentary. Dreyfuss
notes: "The idea began to gain favor among a feisty
group of hard-line, pro Israelites who played important
roles in President Reagan's Defense Department." Lead
by Richard Perle, then chairman of the Pentagon's
Defense Policy Board, and previous Deputy Secretary
of Defense Paul Wolfowitz, this group "occupied several
dozen key posts in the White House, the Pentagon, and
the State Department." Dreyfuss also noted a Washington
think tank developed: "Project for the New American
Century" . Members then included Richard, Perle,
strategist Robert Kagan, William Kristol, NEW REPUBLIC
publisher, Martin Peretz, and ex-CIA Director James
Woolsey and were "tied to a web of similar
neo-conservative, pro-Israel organizations."
Dreyfuss quoted Diplomat Akins: "It's a team that
looks all too familiar, seeking to implement the plan
first outlined back in 1975. It'll be easier once we
have Iraq... we already have Qatar and Bahrain too so
it's only Saudi Arabia we're talking about, and the
United Arab Emirates." Robert Dreyfuss also quoted
Michael Klare, Hampshire College professor, and
author of RESOURCE WARS, who concluded that:
"Controlling Iraq is about oil as power, rather
than oil as fuel... Control over the Persian Gulf
translates into control over Europe, Japan, and China.
It's having our hand on the spigot."
The legitimacy of Muslim concern was outlined by
George Bisharat, Hastings Law professor, in a SF
Chronicle column. Bisharat wrote: "The real reason
we are going to war is the messianic vision of a
small but influential group of strongly pro-Israel
hawks within the Bush administration. Their goal is
unilateral global domination through absolute
military superiority." Bisharat noted the group's
leader, Richard Perle: " had helped author a study
for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyhu which
described Saddam Hussein's overthrow as "an
important Israeli strategic objective in its own
right." War against Iraq would eliminate any
obstacle to a disposition of the Israeli-Palestinian
conflict on terms that satisfy Israel's territorial
ambitions on most or all of the West Bank.
In a 2004 article: TREASON IN HIGH PLACES:
PENTAGON ZIONISTS, AIPAC and ISRAEL, writer
James Petras noted: "The FBI investigation into
Israel espionage agents in the Pentagon is part
of a major struggle between prominent Zionists
in the Pentagon and the US Security apparatus.
Ever since the Bush regieme came into power there
has been a fierce... war between Pentagon Zionists
..their military collaborators... and the
professional military and intelligence apparatus."
Petras added:: " From 9/11/2001 to the invasion of
Iraq, the Pentagon Zionists and their civilian
militarists had the upper hand: They marginalized
the CIA, and established their own intelligence
services to "cook the data." They pushed through
the doctrine of sequential wars, beginning with
Afghanistan and Iraq and projecting wars with Iran,
Syria, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and other Muslim
countries. The Pentagon Zionists increased Israel's
power in the Middle East, and promoted its expansionist
colonization of Palestine ." Petras adds: "It's clear
that Israeli agents, not simply Zionist ideologues,
infest the top echelon of the Pentagon"
A day by day observation of this dangerous parasite's
quiet insinuation into Washington's intelligence,
defense, planning and political systems was offered
by a retired Lieut.-Colonel in the Air Force, Karen
Kwaitkowski ( see Global Outlook, Issue 8 pg. 15-20).
Kwaitkowski wrote: "From May 2002 until February 2003,
I observed firsthand the formation of the Pentagon's
Office of Special Planning (OSP) and watched the
latter stages of the neoconservative capture of the
policy-intelligence nexus in the run-up to the
invasion of Iraq... I watched neoconservative agenda
bearers within the OSP usurp measured and carefully-
considered assessments, and though suppression and
distortion of intelligence analysis, promulgate what
were in fact falsehoods to both Congress and the
Executive Office of the President." Kwaitkowski
described in detail how longtime professionals in
important Defense Department offices were replaced
by agents from Jewish-oriented, agenda-bearing think
tanks "including the Middle East Research Institute,
the Washington Institute form Mideast Policy, and
the Jewish Institute for International Affairs."
Adding : " That the Pentagon was implementing its
own foreign policy had not yet occurred to me,"
Kwaitkowski described how the Neocons in the Office
of Special Plans, developed "talking points,"
propagandistic in style. "All desk officers were
ordered to use them verbatim in material intended
for higher-ups and people outside the Pentagon.
Talking points included Saddam Hussein's... using
chemical weapons against his own people... his
relations with terrorists... aid to Palestinians,
aggressive nuclear weapons program" Thus, instead
of developing defense policy alternatives and advice,
the OSP was being used to manufacture
propaganda and pseudo war planning.
Columnist Charlie Reese (www.rense.com/general57/apic.htm ) reported that
Washington Neocons Richard Perle, Douglas Feith and David Wurmser's
policy paper had advised Netanyhu to abandon the peace process, reject
"land for peace," Reese added: "... removing Saddam from power didn't cost
Israel one shekel or one life."Writer, Christopher Bolyn (American Free
Press 7 Nov, 2005) noted that Neocon' plans to have US attack Iraq
originated in Isrrael. Quoting Israel Shahak's translation from the
Hebrew of "The Zionist Plan for the Meddle East," a plan written by
Oded Yinon an official with the Foreign Ministry of Israel, and published
in a journal of the World Zionist Organization in 1982.The plan calls for
the dissolution or balkanization of both Syria and Iraq. " Iraq rich in
oil on the one hand and internally torn on the other is guaranteed as a
candidate for Israel's targets Yinon wrote in 1982.. Its dissolution is
even more important for us than that of Syria. . Iraqi power constitutes
the greatest threat to Israel. Much of the day to day politicking for
AIPAC has been accomplished by the Lobby's "Rat Pack" in Washington,
the so-called "Neocons" who presently are being moved, about by the
Bush administration, like objects on a chess board, sometimes to guard
them from too-critical public scrutiny. Paul Wolfowitz, once Bush's
second ranking official at the Pentagon, who, after General Eric
Shinseki in February 2003 had testified before Congress Armed Services
Committee that peacekeeping forces in Iraq "would require several
thousand troops." publicly called Shinzeki's estimate" wildly off the
mark", and told congress: "Iraqis would welcome the Americans" has been
kicked upstairs to chair the World Bank and get him out of the spotlight.
(New York Times, 16 April, 2006) Richard Perle , once Pentagon policy
adviser, former Likud policy adviser, international investor, and ardent
