Jeff Gates at, on the issue of Israeli Nuclear weapons, after exploring JFK's (perceived) role, observes of the immediate pertinent question at hand:

'Special Standard for a Special Friend Due to its “special relationship” with the U.S., Tel Aviv remains a non-signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. ... What about Israel? What has their lobby been doing? ... At what point will Americans say: Enough!' -- Jeff Gates, At What Cost the Israel Lobby? October 12, 2009

This response to Mr. Gates' outstanding article contrarily examines two of its key highlights: 1) Israel's Nuclear Weapons program; and 2) Israel Lobby.

Israel's Nuclear Weapons Program

My view on the Israeli Nuclear Weapons program has always been principally based on Theodor Herzl’s view of the Jewish mission in Palestine, that:

“We can be the vanguard of culture against barbarianism”,

as he endeavored to justify Der Judenstaat to imperial powers du jour, predicting:

“The antisemites WILL BECOME our most loyal friends, the antisemites nations will become our allies”.

Every generation of Zionist statesmen and stateswomen since then, has emphasized that indispensable role of Zionistan as a frontier outpost of the West:

“There is a huge gap between us (Jews) and our enemies not just in ability but in morality, culture, sanctity of life, and conscience. They are our neighbors here, but it seems as if at a distance of a few hundred meters away, they are people who do not belong to our continent, to our world, but actually belong to different galaxy.”

That was Moshe Katsav, Israel’s President, in June 2001. And this is George W. Bush, as the erstwhile President of the United States, while representing the sole-superpower at Israel’s 60th B’day bash in May 2008:

“Our two nations both faced great challenges when they were founded. And our two nations have both relied on the same principles to help us succeed. We built strong democracies to protect the freedoms given to us by an Almighty God”. ( Celebrating Israel's 60th Birthday in the 60th year of the Nakba by Bible Burning in Zionistan )

That century year old linkage of shared ethos and sharing of “same principles” manifests itself in the Israeli-American relationship. It is a lot more than AIPAC and JINSA. It has to do with who the oligarchs are, and what might be their overarching agenda with respect to “the Zion that will light up all the world”.

The visible politicians running governments are merely the 'errand boys' who implement only their great benefactors' agendas. While Theodor Herzl and the World Zionist Federation are credited with founding Israel, the fact that it was done with Rothschild money is rarely if ever mentioned. Even by the antagonists of Israel! Notice that the Balfour Declaration was issued to Lord (Lionel) Rothschild. Why to him? The world’s financial powers control both nations, as well as those of the European continent.

So… fast forwarding past the palpably obvious Israel Lobby factor, to being that 'ubermensch' “vanguard of culture against barbarianism”, the farthest outpost of Western culture and civilization, Zionistan is an integral part of the world superpower equation that is being ridden hard by its ideological-financial oligarchs. In both, its “la mission civilisatrice” agenda, as well as a proxy henchman on the ‘Grand Chessboard’ when public opinion won’t allow the greatest democracy on earth to play havoc with others itself (in idyllic times now past of course).

This is what I wrote in Chapter 2 of Prisoners of the Cave in 2003, and I remain un-persuaded, still, that this is an inaccurate perception of the reality of hegemony:


While the number of ~200 is often quoted, even today, it is an old number. The current actual size of Israel’s nuclear arsenal is likely to be in the thousands, comprising an assorted cocktail of Armageddon inflicting gifts of the Jews to modern civilization.

How Israel got its nuclear weapons is an interesting tale, not to be rehearsed here. As a key ally of America through the Cold War, it is very likely that some of Israel’s warheads remained aimed at the Soviet Union, as much as Israel’s own enemies in the region. The Soviets were likely made aware of this because that is why they could never belligerently threaten Israel on the side of their own Arab client-states during the 1973 Arab Israeli war and essentially stayed out of it, while America openly supported Israel. And that is also what likely emboldened Israel to preemptively take out the Iraqi Nuclear reactor nearing completion in 1981 that was being built with Russian assistance, with no retaliation from the Soviets. And this was going on even as Iraq was being supplied with conventional weapons of mass destruction by America and the West and goaded on to fight Iran’s Islamic revolution to neutralize it – using the Iraqis as the front foot soldiers to take the brunt of the casualties, with a nuclear armed Israel as the backup armor. I am quite certain that had Iran’s counter offensive prevailed over Iraq and taken over Baghdad, that Israel would have struck with a preemptive Nuclear strike on Iran – as the immediate interests of America and Israel merged on the borders of Iran (apart from the continued out flow of oil). Thus nuclear arming of Israel was a necessity for America seen in this light – as almost an extension of America in the Middle East. An idea that JINSA has diligently pursued, to build up Israel’s defenses to have it prevail over all its neighbors by wielding its nuclear club.

End Excerpt

While it is stated by many, including Mr. Jeff Gates, that JFK was against nuclear arming Israel, his notorious letter to David Ben Gurion notwithstanding, it isn’t entirely clear to me. JFK was just as beholden to Jewish money to get him elected ab initio, as every US president of recent memory. The 1951 picture below from Jeff's article, of a young JFK congressman in the home of the butcher of Palestine, David Ben Gurion, just three years into the founding of Israel on Palestinian blood and soil, screams louder than any words ever can. It appears kosher to fraternize with blood-drenched victorious founders of a nation, so long as they have “kill[ed] in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets.”

“Deception is a state of mind and the mind of the state”

David Ben-Gurion, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Jr., and Congressman John Kennedy. It was taken in Ben-Gurion's Jerusalem home in early October 1951. Bobby Kennedy was also there, but is not in the photo.

Israel Lobby

The hijacking of America has many hidden players. And it has been many a century in the making, of which, I believe, the Israel Lobby, although potent, and in possession of many an incantation of power, is but the most recent 'errand boy'! Getting rid of the Israel Lobby's influence on Washington is merely addressing the effect, not the cause, and therefore, highly unlikely to be successfully eliminated. Unless of course, one asserts that those identified as the “Israel Lobby”, were also the prime-movers behind the Vietnam War, the Korean War, the Cold War, Hiroshima-Nagasaki, rest of WW-II, WW-I, Nazi Socialism and Soviet Communism, the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, and the bankruptcy of America.

When Jeff Gates alludes to looking for causes by referencing his excellent article “How the Israel Lobby Took Control of U.S. Foreign Policy” in which he carefully analyses some of the political mechanisms and legalized subversions of democratic processes, I presume he is also searching for the real ideological policy wielders and funders of social engineering who sit atop the principal causes of America's malfunction in the Middle East and the world. They are not readily visible by scrutinizing the political mechanisms of subversion being harvested by their front organizations, 'errand boys', and 'bulldogs'!

In my view, the publicly un-apparent root-cause throughout America's history of hegemony and warfare, both silent and with bombs, has in these times finally 'broken the surface' so to speak. It is a travesty of thought and justice to ignore it and its creators any longer.

With all its legal and existential preparations completed, the root-cause, the godhead of all terrorism, wars, and pestilence upon mankind over the past hundred plus years, is now boldly heralding its one-world government, just as Carroll Quigley had announced it would way back in 1966. As genocidal as Israel is towards the Palestinians, addressing the complex issues of American foreign policy effectively must begin by first comprehending, as well as apprehending, the oligarchic players behind the scenes who have outright determined America's course for over a century. Some might argue since its very founding. Founding father Alexander Hamilton is still proudly quoted on the United States Treasury website: “The United States Debt, foreign and domestic, was the price of liberty.” Today, even the man on the street in America is feeling the impact of that “liberty” just like the Muslim world is feeling the impact of freedom and change.

Well, that first-cause, the prime-movers who distort creation, language, thought, and successfully seed corruption with their immense wealth, are the actual grandparents of the Israel Lobby. They have hitherto largely remained hidden from public view. Comfortably enthroned in their private and largely opaque central banks, they principally control the pyramid of power from its apex through their myriad of tax-exempt foundations, which in turn actually formulate and write most of the policy prescriptions presented to the United States Congress and to the White House. They fund all wars, and arm all sides through their vassals and agents. And they control the jugular of the American nation – as publicly witnessed during the Grand Theft of America in plainsight just this past October 2008. The Monetary Reform Bibliography contains some pertinent readings which show a deliberate malfeasant banksters' agenda to create global currency under global central banking. The gratuitous dollar printing, coldly admitted to by even the FED chairman Ben Bernanke, has no representative input from even the elected representatives of the people, never mind the people themselves.

To even begin to fix America's problems, one has to start bringing some real higher order parasites to book, before one can ever be successful in curbing the totality of their multimodal subversive influence-peddling functions, only one incantation of which is the “Israel Lobby”.

There are far greater immediate dangers facing America (and the world) at the hands of the globalist oligarchs than by their 'errand boy', the “Israel Lobby”. Nation-states have been losing their sovereignty in gradual premeditated stages through entirely un-representative and pernicious “end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece”. And in the latest round of UN 2009 Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) which President Obama is intending to sign in Copenhagen in December 2009, unless stopped immediately, drastically more world government will get created. The UN already controls emergency pandemic management within the United States under the WHO charter of 2005, to which the US (I believe), as most of the world, is a signatory. See the Swine Flu Chronicles 2009 for the role of WHO in determining United States domestic response to the “pandemic” in collusion with other public agencies who seem to be beholden to un-elected powers. So which power is behind WHO?

That pernicious process of systematic loss of national sovereignty to global governing bodies of the oligarchs has little effective public representation. It is rubber-stamped all the way and the public doesn't even get to hear about it until after the fact, if they are lucky. And that has little to do with the loss of Representative Democracy due to the Israel Lobby's influence-peddling for its single-issue advocacy of Israel First. All these are effects.

To effectively counter Israel's barbarianism upon the Palestinians, to extract America from the clutches of the “Israel Lobby”, to wean the newsmedia and mythmakers away from their 'Israel can do no wrong' ethos, the path must go through their common ideological controllers who own BIS! Both abhorrences, Zionism and World Order, are their Tragedy and Hope.

Neuter the root-head first-cause which spawns all political subversions of the “democratic process”, and the existent 'errand boys' and their 'bulldogs' will automatically lose their bite and also die away.

'At what point will Americans say: Enough!' INDEED!!
