The Lobby on Petraeus...


Predictably it took less time for me to say Zionism! than for the Lobby to pick up on Gen David Petraeus' softly worded but self-evident assertions regarding the fomenting of anti-American sentiment in the ME as a result of the US's blatant favouritism of Israel.

The ADL's rebuke:

The assumptions Gen. Petraeus presented to the Senate Armed Services Committee wrongly attribute “insufficient progress” in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process and “a perception of U.S. favoritism for Israel” as significantly impeding the U.S. military mission in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan and in dealing with the Iranian influences in the region. It is that much more of a concern to hear this coming from such a great American patriot and hero.

The General’s assertions lead to the illusory conclusion that if only there was a resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the U.S. could successfully complete its mission in the region.

Of course he didn't really say anything of the sort, the man's instincts for self-preservation being no doubt as strong as the next soldier's.

But things can be expected to get a lot hairier with 'AIPAC week' coming up and Obama apparently choosing not to attend, visiting instead one of the largest Muslim countries in the world. Obama, having attended Madrassas in his youth when undoubtedly he was exposed to veiled 'nuke Israel!' Quranic verses until his ears were burning, choosing not to attend a meeting between Zionism's Finest and their Protectors from God's Own Country! This man's not only rumoured to be willing 'to throw Israel under the bus', his Quranic mindset has also access to the US's Nuclear Launch Codes and may well present a far greater clear and present danger to Israel than Ah-Mad's Iran!

And Mad Mel concurred with me... before I'd written it...

'Who do you think you are kiddin', Mr ObaHitler?'

- An excellent observation DyWp.

Regardless of other considerations, I couldn't imagine the likes of Bush doing something like this.

No, but I wouldn't read too much into it, Joe. Without a massive grass roots US awakening to what exactly they've been giving about 0.1 trillion dollars so far, the lickspittles in Congress and Senate aren't going to bite the hand that feeds them...

Thanks Gert.

It's small beer indeed, but in the scheme of things, it gives out signals that aren't meant to be missed or mis-understood.

Like ohers though, I just see the mis-named pro-Israeli lobby in Washington as carrying out a disciplinary role rather than having any fundamental influence on US foreign policy.

I've alwasy thought that, even before the recent Iraq debacle.

The current running costs of subsidising the Israeli regime shows how much value for money they are.

A billion or two dollars a year, kept under review annually, doesn't exactly fit in with an overwheening small country bossing a military superpower about - especially compared to the staggering amounts of wealth expended by the US over Iraq, which largely went to show the rest of the world how weak and vulnerable the US is against such absurdly pitiful foes.

all the best

I already saw it: to do with the health care bill. Wait and see whether he will worship at the Zionist High Altar and atone for his sins, I guess...

Pity really, the Far Right Zion commentary would have been hilarious, Hussein visiting Mosques and stuff! Now I too am opposed to this damn health care stuff. Surely Meircans are rugged enough to live without health care? ;-)

Cheers Gert.

I'm not too up with domestic US politics but to have postponed an important visit abroad sends out important messeges not to be missed or mis-understood etc etc blah blah...
