	JEWISH WRITERS CLAIM POWERFUL ZIONISTS DROVE USA INTO
	MID-EAST WAR FOR SAKE OF ISRAEL!

	
	Joe Klein, Time  Magazine, Time.com, February 5, 2003

	"A stronger Israel is very much embedded in the
	rationale for war with  Iraq. It is a part of the
	argument that dare not speak its name, a fantasy 
	quietly cherished by the neo-conservative faction in the
	Bush Administration and  by many leaders of the American
	Jewish community.

	The fantasy involves a domino theory. The destruction of
	Saddam's Iraq will not only remove an enemy of
	long-standing but will also  change the basic power
	equation in the region. It will send a message to Syria 
	and Iran about the perils of support for Islamic
	terrorists. It will send a message to the Palestinians
	too: Democratize and make peace on Israeli terms, or 
	forget about a state of your own."

	Tariq Aziz has a theory. Saddam Hussein's deputy told
	the New York Times this week, "The reason for this
	warmongering policy toward Iraq is oil and  Israel."
	Although no one wishes to agree with Tariq Aziz, he has
	put succinctly  what many people in Washington
	apparently believe.

	The lack of public discussion about the role of Israel
	in the  thinking of "President Bush" is easier to
	understand, but weird nevertheless. It  is the
	proverbial elephant in the room: Everybody sees it, no
	one mentions it.  The reason is obvious and admirable:
	Neither supporters nor opponents of a war  against Iraq
	wish to evoke the classic anti-Semitic image of the
	king's Jewish  advisers whispering poison into his ear
	and betraying the country to foreign interests.

	"The war in Iraq was conceived by 25 neoconservative
	intellectuals, most  of them Jewish, who are pushing
	President Bush to change the course of history.

	In the course of the past year, a new belief has emerged
	 in the town (Washington): the belief in war against
	Iraq. That ardent faith was  disseminated by a small
	group of 25 or 30 neoconservatives, almost all of them 
	Jewish, almost all of them intellectuals (a partial
	list: Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith,
	William Kristol, Eliot Abrams, Charles Krauthammer), 
	people who are mutual friends and cultivate one another
	and are convinced that  political ideas are a major
	driving force of history."

	"In 1996, as Likud Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
	prepared to take  office, eight Jewish neoconservative
	leaders sent him a six-page memo outlining  an
	aggressive vision of government. At the top of their
	list was overthrowing  Saddam and replacing him with a
	monarch under the control of Jordan.

	The neoconservatives sketched out a kind of domino
	theory in which the  governments of Syria and other Arab
	countries might later fall or be replaced in  the wake
	of Saddam's ouster. They urged Netanyahu to spurn the
	Oslo peace accords and to stop making concessions to the
	Palestinians.

	Lead writer of the memo was Perle. Other signatories
	were Feith, now  undersecretary of defense, and Wurmser,
	a senior adviser to John Bolton, undersecretary of
	state.

	Fred Donner, a professor of Near Eastern history at the
	University of  Chicago, said he was struck by the
	similarities between the ideas in the memo  and ideas
	now at the forefront of Bush's foreign policy."

	I could give you the names of 25 people (all of whom are
	 at this moment within a five-block radius of this
	office) who, if you had exiled  them to a desert island
	a year and a half ago, the Iraq war would not have 
	happened.

	It is not only the neo-conservatives who led us to the
	outskirts of Baghdad.  What led us to the outskirts of
	Baghdad is a very American combination of  anxiety and
	hubris."

	If the U.S. gets bogged down with heavy casualties on
	both sides,  Americans are going to blame big oil and
	Zionism for getting them into this  mess.

	Everybody knows that: The only country that fears Iraq's
	WMD's is Israel; American-Jewish neo-conservatives on
	the Defence Policy Board (Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz)
	planned this war in 1998 and made it Bush Administration
	policy; The purpose of the war is to change the balance
	of power in the Middle East so Israel can settle the
	Palestinian issue on its own terms; and Congress
	trembles in fear before the Israeli Lobby, "AIPAC."

	At this perilous juncture in US history, there is no
	effective opposition  because Zionist Jews appear to
	control both parties. The Jewish "Anti Defamation 
	League" considers it a barometer of anti Semitism to
	say, "Jews have too much power." But is something anti-
	Semitic if it is true? Anti Semitism is racial 
	prejudice. Zionist power is not a racial prejudice; it
	is a fact of life. When a  special interest group
	hijacks American foreign policy, it is a patriotic duty 
	to say so.

	In recent decades, Zionists have succeeded in making
	support for Zionism  synonymous with "Jewish." They have
	made Israel appear to be a vulnerable  country facing
	annihilation in a sea of bloodthirsty Arabs. In fact,
	Israel has  200-400 nuclear bombs and is one of the most
	powerful nations on earth. It has  evaded many
	opportunities for a just peace because it's secret
	agenda is to  dominate the region. Israel keeps this
	quiet because most Jews, including Israelis, did not
	sign on for that.

	"The old adage has it that, when visiting a foreign
	country, to ascertain  who really runs things, one need
	determine only who is spoken about in whispers,  if at
	all." Judged by this measure, the Jews rule supreme.
	Indeed, when I  referred to 'Jewish media lords' during
	a UNESCO conference in the summer of  2001, the
	audience's hearts missed a beat.

	The yet-unfought War on Iraq changed this. The American
	Ultimatum date was  set on 17 March, the Jewish feast of
	Purim. Purim, 1991 saw destruction of Iraqi  armies and
	death of 200,000 Iraqis. Too many coincidences for a
	purely American  war."

	"The powerful pro-Israel lobby in the United States ,
	which advances  Israeli interests by pushing for U.S.
	aid and protection to Israel , and, currently, by
	pressing  for a war against Iraq , which again will
	serve Israeli interests. This lobby has not only helped
	control media debate and made congress  into 'Israeli
	occupied territory', it has seen to it that numerous
	officials  with 'dual loyalties' occupy strategic
	decision-making positions in the Bush  administration . . ."

	"The Zionists who rule Israel and the Zionists in
	America have been trying to  trick the U.S. into a
	Mideast war on the side of Israel. They almost succeeded
	 when U.S. Marines were sent to Lebanon in 1982. The
	blood of the 250 American Marines who died in Lebanon is
	dripping from the hands of the Israeli and  American
	Zionists.

	If more Americans are not made aware of the truth about
	Zionist Israel, you can be sure that, sooner or later,
	those atheists who claim  to be God's Chosen People will
	trick the U.S. into a Mideast war against the  Arabs who
	in the past have always been America's best friends.
