NOTE: Contributing to Israel's angst regarding Obama's attitude towards Iran as expressed by Harel (above), Bret Stephens, a foreign-affairs columnist for the Wall Street Journal, warns that Obama's pathetically weak attitude towards Iran cannot help but make Israel feel that there is no help coming from America; all that Obama's rhetoric is doing is further -
Harel goes on to report:
"Robert Einhorn, a senior member of the United States negotiating team, accurately predicted the development of these concerns in Israel [as the talks have progressed]."
He went on to say,
"... ISRAEL HAS EVERY REASON TO BE SUSPICIOUS."
"Washington's eagerness to cut a deal and the cleverness displayed by the Iranians during the negotiations, give the impression that the interim agreement being drawn up does not bode well for Israel. Based on leaks coming from Geneva, the Americans ... are prepared to consider considerable relief from sanctions now, not just a limited release of frozen Iranian assets and the suspension of marginal sanctions, as Israel had been told. Nor does the proposed interim arrangement roll back anything with regard to Iran's enrichment capability, leaving Iran theoretically within a few weeks of the production of a bomb, should they decide to do so."
Writing in Reuters on what Israel considers to be Obama's "Stab-in-the-back" vis-à-vis Iran's nuclear ambitions, David Stamp and Alastair Macdonald report that -
"Israel rejects out of hand the deal between world powers and Iran."
More ominously, they report that – given America's duplicity regarding Iran - Netanyahu has felt obliged to warn the world, and the Obama government in particular, that -
"Israel will not be obligated by this agreement; Israel will do everything it needs to do to defend itself and the security of its people."
NOTE: Concerning the potential for a "go-it-alone" airstrike by Israel on Iran's nuclear facilities, James Petras, a retired Bartle Professor (Emeritus) of Sociology at Binghamton University, SUNY, New York, cautions that such -
Regarding the very real possibility of a "go-it-alone" air attack on Israel should he (Obama) continue on his present course of making peace with Iran by "throwing Israel under the bus," Ron Ben-Yishai, reporting for Ynet, writes:
"The Obama White House has undertaken a concerted campaign to undermine [forestall] any possible ["go-it-alone"] Israeli air strike on Iran. Evidence for the campaign includes leaked information containing sensitive details, such as an article that appeared recently in Foreign Policy Magazine that names Azerbaijan as a country from which Israel might launch an Iran attack."
"In recent weeks the Administration shifted from persuasion efforts vis-à-vis Israeli decision-makers and Israel's public opinion to a practical, targeted elimination of potential Israeli operations against Iran.
"To make it more difficult for Israeli decision-makers to order the IDF to carry out a strike, and what's even graver, to erode the IDF's capacity to launch such strike with minimal casualties, the Obama government has warned the Azeri government that it would look on any such help going to the Israelis in a very dim light.
"The article in Foreign Policy Magazine [see above] stated that the Azeri government had [past-tense] given Israel permission to use four abandoned Soviet-era air force bases near Iran's border. Should Israel decide to strike Iran's nuclear facilities ... Israelis war planes using these bases would not have to refuel mid-flight, eliminating a major operational obstacle.
"Access to such airfields is important for Israel, because it would mean that Israeli F-15-I and F-16-I fighter-bombers would not have to refuel mid-flight during a strike on Iran's nuclear facilities, but could simply continue north and land in Azerbaijan. Defense analyst David Isenberg describes the ability to use Azeri airfields as 'a significant asset' to any Israel strike, calculating that the 2,200-mile trip from Israel to Iran and back again would stretch Israel's warplanes to their limits. 'Even if they added extra fuel tanks, they'd be running on fumes' Isenberg told me, 'so being allowed access to Azeri airfields would be crucial'."
As things stand now, it appears that the U.S. effort to convince Azerbaijan to deny Israel the use of these facilities has been successful. ONE IS LEFT BREATHLESS AT THE LENGTHS OBAMA WILL GO TO BEND ISRAEL TO HIS WILL.
The concerns expressed by both Petras and Stephens, to say nothing of Netanyahu's apprehensions, were reinforced recently by remarks from Gen. Massoud Jazayeri, deputy chief of staff of Iran's armed forces, that soon - very soon now – a nuclear-armed Iran will be able to destroy Israel and cower the U.S. into compliance with its wishes regarding the Middle East.
The general then went on to mock President Obama's position that the U.S. remains willing to use military force against Iran. He remarked scornfully,
"If America had the ability and the will for war, it would no doubt have attacked Syria."
The fact that it didn't lends credence to the notion that Obama will not use force to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons. Jazayeri believes that because Obama vacillated over this matter was (is) "proof positive" that America will eventually cave-in to Iran's desires regarding its nuclear ambitions, just as it did with regard to North Korea's acquisition of nuclear weapons several years ago. [Please see our article, "Lies, Lies and More Lies Concerning What's Happening in the Middle East" and "U.S. Losing Control in Turkey, Syria and Egypt."]
John Bolton, former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., warns:
"The calculus that Obama leaves with Netanyahu is that the U.S. won't really back Israel if he orders a first strike. There is an implied threat here, that if Israel uses military force, that we [ie., the U.S.] will not have their back, that we will not resupply them with planes or other weapons, that we will not help them if they're attacked by missiles from Hezbollah and Hamas, and so forth."
Needless to say, this kind of naked, hard-nosed calculus is enough to send shivers up and down the spines of all those who are concerned by Obama's tilt toward Iran at the Geneva summit.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has kept up a steady drumbeat of public criticism regarding what the Obama administration is up to in its talks with Iran, said on Sunday that he has begun calling Jewish leaders [in the Jewish Diaspora – i.e., Jews living outside the borders of Israel] to convince them to put pressure on their governments against the proposed agreement; that it was -
"... dangerous not just for us; it is also dangerous for you [ie., Jews living in the Diaspora]."

THE JEWS AND THE ILLUMINATI MYTH
According to today's anti-Semites, Jews control the world; this analysis is based on a CONSPIRACY THEORY known to history as the Illuminati Myth purveyed by such NAIFS and DIMWITS as Alex Jones, Pat Robertson, Tex Marrs, Paul Joseph Watson, Jeff Rense, ad nauseum. Illuminati enthusiasts and devotees like to paint the myth as extending back into the misty past, but that simply is not the case. The Illuminati Myth did not exist as literature prior to the French Revolution - and even then only as disjointed pieces, not as a consistent whole. Not until 1905 did the myth explode on the world as a coherent body of literature. What anti-Semitic writings that did exist prior to 1797 had nothing to do with the Jews as participants in a revolutionary world-conspiracy aimed at the destruction of Christianity; it was largely confined to religious themes with only the most indirect political overtones. Clearly, the anti-Semitic literature which existed prior to 1797 tied the Jews to the death of Christ, and on that basis they were persecuted; it also pictured them as "moneylenders," and occasionally it linked them to the practice of witchcraft; but it never portrayed them as revolutionaries bent on the conquest of the world. On the contrary, Jews were painted as weaklings and cowards; a people hardly worth even the most indirect kind of political attention - and for that reason, most European armies excluded Jews from military service well into the nineteenth century. The first disjointed pieces of the Illuminati Myth can be traced back to the French Revolution, specifically to the French cleric, the Abbe Barruel's anti-Semitic ramblings. It should be noted here that most of the tomes that today exist about the Illuminati - stem directly from these crazed ramblings [Please see our article, "The Origins of the Illuminati Myth." Please also see Norman Cohn, Warrant for Genocide (New York: Harper and Row)]
Nonetheless, despite the continuing subtle anti-Semitism of countless numbers of those connected to the Obama government, average Jews in the United States have little inclination outside the relatively small number of Jews connected to AIPAC (ie., the American / Jewish Political Action Committee) to support what they believe to be Netanyahu's "MESSIANIC AND APOCALYPTIC" fears regarding a nuclear armed Iran.
NOTE: Interestingly, AIPAC's perceived "sway" over American foreign policy rests not so much on any influence it might have with the greater American Jewish community as it does with the influence it possesses over the American evangelical community.
Nonetheless, so far as average Jews in the United States are concerned, there is very little inclination to support what they believe to be Netanyahu's "messianic and apocalyptic" fears regarding a nuclear armed Iran.
NOTE: In my brother's second "Jerusalem Report," he made an extremely perceptive comment concerning the lack of support in the Jewish Diaspora for Israel's hard-line policies regarding the possibility of war with Iran; Doug wrote:
The reason, of course, is that the Jewish community in the United States has historically pursued an "assimilationist policy" with regard to their safety not only in the United States, but also throughout the world – the same kind of naive and reckless "assimilationist policy" that the Jews of Germany pursued even after Hitler had taken power in Germany eighty years; for example, Heinz Kellerman, a Jew writing shortly after the advent of the Nazi dictatorship to power, wrote the astonishingly naive words:
Then there was Joseph Lehman, Rabbi of Berlin, who said in the spring of 1933:
Hans Joachim Schoeps, a young German Jewish intellectual who organized the Deutsche Vortrupp, also wrote in the same period:
In his memoirs written after the war, Schoeps describes his nightmarish remorse for not having advised those millions of Jews who were later murdered to flee right away - at all costs.
"Assimilationist Jews" demonstrating in NYC - making the same mistake that the Jew of Germany made eighty years ago with regard to Hitler.
The end result of "assimilationist" policies
TO WHICH THE JEWS OF ISRAEL SAY: "NEVER AGAIN!!"
"NEVER AGAIN" --
-- is the oath that new members of Israel's tank corps take at Masada. The very real fact of the matter is, once Israeli intelligence agencies and senior military command levels conclude that the clock has struck one minute to midnight, no amount of pressure from allies will succeed in dissuading it from acting in self-preservation. [Again, please see our article "HATRED OF JEWS HAS REACHED NEW HEIGHTS" which discusses the "Masada Option."]
Obama, however, chooses to ignore this reality (ie., "THE MASADA COMPLEX") that is deeply embedded in the mindset of Jews living in Israel. He is profoundly committed to making peace with Iran, even it means by sacrificing Israel's security - AND HE IS SUPPORTED IN THIS POLICY BY JEWS IN AMERICA. They sincerely believe that Jews should give up on the idea of a state of their own, which they see as RACIST in the same way that the apartheid policies of South Africa were RACIST regarding blacks.
Assimilationist Jews discount the rantings of the Mullahs of Iran and elsewhere throughout the Middle East as just that – rantings: rantings that will be tamed over time. Of course, this is exactly what the Jews of Germany believed regarding Hitler in 1933.
Roger Cohen of the New York Times -speaking for "assimilationist Jews" in America.
In an article that appeared in the New York Times on October 22, 2012, Roger Cohen, an "assimilationist Jew" (again, see "NOTE" above) whose opinions are anathema to conservative Jews living in Israel as well as Christian evangelicals in this country, did more than most have been able to do in bringing some semblance of understanding to Obama's efforts to make peace with Islam – and most particularly, Iran – by "throwing Israel under the bus." Concerning Obama's effort in this direction, he wrote:
"Perhaps the most radical change in U.S. foreign policy under President Obama has occurred [in his effort to make peace with Islamists in the Middle East]."
"Today ultraconservative Salafist politicians [a far-right Islamist group] ... are now regular visitors to U.S. Embassies [throughout the Middle East] on the theory that it is better to have them inside the tent than out, they are able to visit the United States to learn [supposedly] how things work in the land of Jeffersonian democracy.
"Of course, the new American thinking goes, agreement will never be possible with these Salafis on women's rights, for example, but this does not mean that they cannot have a mutually beneficial relationship with the West or evolve. Every Salafi in Parliament is one less potential jihadist."
A Salafi is a Muslim who teaches a literalist, strict and puritanical approach to Islam; they espouse violent jihad against civilians as a legitimate expression of Islam.
Cohen goes on to say:
"Still, I would argue that OBAMA has made the right choice; that this new policy of engagement with even extreme currents of political Islam in the Middle East is salutary; THE MODEL SHOULD BE EXPANDED ..."
Tom Engelhardt echoes Cohen; he dismisses Israel's fear of a nuclear-armed Iran as the raving of a "MESSIANIC APOCALYPTIC CULT" led by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu; he writes:
"Sometimes, reading about the Middle East, or at least about Israel, Iran, and nuclear weapons, feels like your most basic broken-record phenomenon. As New York Times op-ed columnist Roger Cohen reminded readers recently, there's nothing new about Israeli predictions that Iranian 'madmen' would soon have nuclear weapons in their hands.
I'm half way down and I'm not dead yet!
"The charges and predictions of the imminent arrival of the Iranian bomb go back well into the 1990s and yet, despite Iran's growing nuclear enrichment program, we still don't know what the true predilections of its leaders are on the basic issue of weaponization."
In other words, Netanyahu and "his ilk" have been beating this drum for more than thirty years, and nothing has happened so far.
Engelhardt's attitude reminds one of someone who has fallen off the Empire State Building, and as he passes the halfway mark in his plunge cries out, I'm half way down and I'm still okay.
The far-reaching change in U.S. policy toward Islam and the state of Israel is attested to by the new "OPENNESS" of the White House to representatives of the Muslim Brotherhood: a year-long investigation by the Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) has found that scores of known extremely radical Islamists have made hundreds of visits to the Obama White House in recent years.
And make no mistake about it, the EXPLICIT anti-Semitism of the many anti-Israeli, anti-Semitic jihadist groups that have gained access to the White House is truly astonishing. Take, for example, the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC): MPAC is a national American Muslim advocacy and public policy organization headquartered in Los Angeles with offices in Washington D.C. It "fronts" for the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States; in doing so, it styles itself as a "moderate" Islamic group advocating for a peaceful solution to the "JEWISH PROBLEM" in the Middle East; BUT in a statement by its president - Salam al-Marayati - regarding the September 11, 2001 terror attacks, the organization revealed its true anti-Semitic and anti-Israeli sentiments:
"If we're going to look at suspects [for 9-11], we should look to the groups that benefit the most from these kinds of incidents, and I think we should put the state of Israel on the suspect list because I think this diverts attention from what's happening in the Palestinian territories so that they can go on with their aggression and occupation and apartheid policies."
MPAC follows an anti-Semitic doctrine that refers to Jews as the "SONS OF PIGS AND APES" and calls for the demise not only of the Jewish state, but of Jews everywhere. They subscribe to the Hadith Muhammad that calls on Muslims to –
"... fight the Jews and kill them; until the Jews hide behind rocks and trees, which will cry: Oh, Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, come and kill him!" (Bukhari 4.52.176 & 177, and 4.56.791.)
And just how anti-Semitic MPAC is, is attested to by the cartoons of Khalil Bendib that appear regularly in an MPAC publication called The Minaret; the following examples should suffice to exhibit MPAC's anti-Semitism; one is reminded of the anti-Semitic cartoons of the Nazis.
On the left, Bendib cartoon (2000) depicting a gorilla with a Star of David and its arms and legs over the globe. On the right, cartoon by Nazi artist Josef Plank showing an octopus with a Star of David over its head and its tentacles encompassing a globe. (1938)
Left: Cartoon by Bendib depicting Anti-Defamation League leader Abe Foxman using an anti-Semitic stereotype common in early 20th c. Germany and Austria (right).
Left: Bendib cartoon depicting a genie holding a bag with a dollar sign, a Star of David and the names of three American Jewish organizations. Right: Picture from the Nazi children's book, Der Giftpilz (The Toadstool). Its caption reads: "Money is the God of the Jews."
Left: Bendib's depiction of former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon as a cannibal. Right: A Nazi poster depicting Jews as "warmongers and war extenders." Note similarity in stereotyped Jewish facial features.
According to Nazi propaganda, "International Jewry" was the behind-the-scenes puppet master in the Soviet Union, Great Britain, and the United States. As such, Nazi propagandists depicted World War II as a Jewish war against Nazi Germany. The following are examples of this Nazi propaganda theme.
Left: A Jewish Puppeteer Controlling Stalin, Churchill and Roosevelt. Middle: "One eats the other - the Jew will eat all." Right: The Jew leading Churchill
Bendib cartoon depicting a "Zionist" puppeteer controlling US politics.
It is difficult to see how it's possible for "Assimilationist Jews" to ignore this kind of rhetoric – but that is exactly what they have chosen to do.
One is again reminded of the naïve words of Joseph Lehman, Rabbi of Berlin, who – as we indicated earlier - said in the spring of 1933:
"Fleeing Germany is cowardly, just because five months of pain lie behind us and probably years of misjudgment, hate, and need lie ahead of us. Practically speaking, we as Jews reaffirm a life in Germany and for Germany."
Bishop E. W. Jackson
Bishop E. W. Jackson Sr, an anomaly in the black community in that he admits to the popularity of the anti-Semitism in -
--- of which Obama was a part during his "Chicago Days." Jackson writes:
"Like Obama, I am a graduate of Harvard Law School. I too have Muslims in my family ... Since our backgrounds are somewhat similar, I perceive something in Obama's policy toward Israel which people without that background may not see.
"All my life I have witnessed a strain of anti-Semitism in the black community. It has been fueled by the rise of the Nation of Islam and Louis Farrakhan, but it predates that organization. We heard it in Jesse Jackson's "HYMIE town" remark years ago during his presidential campaign. We heard it most recently in Jeremiah Wright's remark about "them Jews" not allowing Obama to speak with him. I hear it from my own Muslim family members who see the problem in the Middle East as a "Jew" problem.
"Growing up in a small, predominantly black urban community in Pennsylvania, I heard the comments about Jewish shop owners. They were 'greedy cheaters' who could not be trusted, according to my family and others in the neighborhood ...
"In Chicago, the anti-Jewish sentiment among black people is even more pronounced because of the direct influence of Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam. Most African Americans are not followers of 'The Nation', but many have a quiet respect for its leader because, they say, 'he speaks the truth' and 'stands up for the black man' ...
Obama and Wright
"The question is whether Obama, given his experience in Farrakhan's Chicago, shares this antipathy for Israel and Jewish people. Is there any evidence that he does? First, the President was taught for twenty years by a virulent anti-Semite, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright. IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY IT IS CALLED 'SITTING UNDER'. YOU DON'T MERELY ATTEND A CHURCH, YOU 'SIT UNDER' A PASTOR TO BE TAUGHT AND MENTORED BY HIM.
"Obama 'sat under' Wright for a very long time. He was comfortable enough with Farrakhan – Wright's friend – to attend and help organize his 'Million Man March' ...
"The classic left wing view as epitomized by Obama's friends in Chicago is that Israel is the oppressive occupier, and the Palestinians are Israel's victims. Obama is clearly sympathetic to this view."
There can be little doubt that what the anti-Israeli attitude (and, yes, even the anti-Semitic attitude) of the Obama administration has done is to solidify the "MASADA COMPLEX" embedded in the Jews of Israel – a fixation that cannot help but propel Netanyahu to strike Iran before it's too late. Indeed, Netanyahu's government has been making plans to "go it alone" for some time now.
"ISRAEL WILL GET ONE SHOT AT IRAN ... [AND THEN] MUCH OF THE WORLD WILL GO APE-SHIT -- LENDING CREDANCE TO THE WORDS OF THE PROPHET ZECHARIAH:
I will make Jerusalem a cup of
trembling unto all the people ...
Reporting on this possibility, a journalist in the Sunday Times (UK), commented that -
"ISRAEL WILL GET ONE SHOT AT IRAN ... [AND THEN] MUCH OF THE WORLD WILL GO 'APE-SHIT' ..."
Retired General Anthony Zinni, reporting on this nightmare scenario, writes,
"What happens -
- "... after ... [Israel] has dropped those bombs on ... [Iran's] hardened facilities, what happens next?
- "What happens if they [ie., the Iranians] decide, in their hardened shelters with their mobile missiles, to start launching those?
- "What happens if they launch them into U.S. bases on the other side of the gulf?
- "What happens if they launch into Israel, or somewhere else? Into a Saudi oil field? Into Ras Laffan, with all the natural gas?
- "What happens if they sink a tanker, an oil tanker? And of course the economy of the world goes absolutely nuts.
- "What happens if they activate sleeper cells? ...
- "What happens if ... they fire up the 'streets' throughout the Middle East?
"Just tell me how to deal with all that, okay?"
Zinni goes on to say:
"I tell my friends, if you like Iraq and Afghanistan, you'll love Iran."
David DeBatto of Global Research writes:
"The day after ... [an Israeli air-strike on Iran] Wall Street will act as it always does in an international crisis – irrational speculative and spot buying [of oil] will reach a fever pitch and send the cost of oil skyrocketing ... The price of oil goes to $200.00 - $300.00 dollars a barrel on the open market ... This will send the price of gasoline at the pump in this country to $8.00-$10.00 per gallon immediately and subsequently to even higher unthinkable levels. If that happens, this country shuts down. Most Americans are not able to afford gas to go to work –
- Truckers pull their big rigs to the side of the road and simply walk away.
- Food, medicine and other critical products ... [become scarce] ...
- There are food riots across the country.
- Civil unrest builds ...
- The United States descends into chaos ..."
And so we say to all that:
We URGE you to read our article, "Understanding What You Will Be Facing during the Tribulation." Please also see our five part series, "THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW "NATIONAL SECURITY APPARATUS" IN THE UNITED STATES AND WHAT IT WILL MEAN TO YOU: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5."]
Listen carefully to me here, dear brothers and sisters:
I am, of course, more than cognizant of the fact that I am referred to as "Chicken Little," OR – as Giovanni Papine puts it, "As a raven always croaking out the same cry" – not just by my detractors, but by many of my friends as well; such, however, is the fate of ALL of God's prophets. Nonetheless, I somberly warn you:
"The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
"But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night ..." (2 Peter 3:9-10)
Some thousands of years ago, this same longsuffering –
"... of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing" (2 Peter 3:9:20)
But eventually judgment came!
The Lord warns us,
More next time.
God bless all of you.
Prophecy is nothing more than a roadsign telling us of the danger that's ahead and warning us to take appropriate action BEFORE we get to the danger. If we do nothing until we finally get there, it will be too late.
