Iraqi Oil for Israel
Exclusive to STR
November 27, 2007
My last two columns, Subpoenas in AIPAC Spy Case Could Help Awaken US Troops On Who They're Really Fighting For and Awaken Our Troops, were of the theme that if we really want to end the Iraq war, and at the same time support our (really the government's) troops, we need to make the individual grunts who're doing the actual killing and maiming, and who are being killed and maimed themselves, aware that they're not actually fighting for freedom or the US Constitution or for their fellow grunts. What they are in cold reality fighting for is a Greater Israel of Biblical proportions and the scummy little US political whores who benefit personally and politically by selling the grunts out for this Hebrew Bible goal.
More proof in the pudding of this deadly and devastating kosher scam has popped up. In an article in the Israeli publication Haaretz, "U.S. Checking Possibility of Pumping Oil From Northern Iraq to Haifa, via Jordan," it is made clear who the only country to benefit from the Iraq war is: Israel. In our current oil dependent world, having oil is a huge plus. Now, Israel is getting much closer to having virtually an unlimited supply of this valuable commodity. All thanks to the neocon-inspired US invasion of Iraq! Leo Strauss, the father of the neoconservative movement, would be very proud and happy!
The article starts with, 'The United States has asked Israel to check the possibility of pumping oil from Iraq to the oil refineries in Haifa.' This is a great way to help bin Laden! Remember him? One of the key recruiting messages that al Qaida uses to attract new people to its cause is that they are protecting Islamic people and resources from the two headed monster, Israel and the US. By pumping Iraqi oil from Iraq to Israel, we will be adding almost as many new al Qaida fighters as when we invaded Iraq. As Michael Scheuer, former CIA leader of the bin Laden unit and author of the very important book Imperial Hubris made clear in an interview, America's foreign policy is 'Bin Laden's Achilles heel.'
The second paragraph of the article is a real tragic/comedic side-splitter! It says the reason the US politicians are willing to pump Iraqi oil to Israel is 'as a 'bonus' the US could give to Israel in return for its unequivocal support for the American-led campaign in Iraq.' What a JOKE!!! It was Israel and its American Israel Public Affairs Committee that was strongly pushing for the US invasion of Iraq in the first place, just as they are now pushing for a US war against Iran! We're giving them Iraqi oil because they control the whores in the White House and Congress.
It looks like the people who will be financially paying for this oil pipeline from Iraq to Israel is the American taxpayer. The US has asked Israel for a cost estimate for repairing the old British pipeline that ran from Mosul, Iraq to Haifa, at that time Palestine, but now Israel. I guess they're not satisfied with the blood of our children and grandchildren, they want more cash, too!
In order to understand US Middle East foreign policy, you need to understand the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament). This is because the neoconservatives have such a strong influence on US Middle East foreign policy, coupled with the powerful Israel first lobby group, AIPAC.
The founder of neoconservatism, Leo Strauss, believed the Hebrew Bible should be the basis of society. As Kenneth Heart Green wrote in his introduction to the important and revealing book, Jewish Philosophy and the Crisis of Modernity, 'Strauss learned from Maimonides that religion is essential to any healthy political society, and certainly for the moral life of human beings. Over and above this, Maimonides convinced Strauss that Jewish religion, based on the Hebrew Bible, is most essential to ground a 'genuine' morality for almost every human being.'
When we look at some of the specific teachings of the Hebrew Bible, we see the Bible god the ancient Hebrews created wanted the Hebrews to rule the world and all other nations to serve them. Deuteronomy 7:6 plainly demonstrates this Jewish superiority over everyone else when they have the Bible god say that they are 'above all people that are upon the face of the earth.'
When US politicians and bureaucrats start wars for Israel's interests and do things like pump Iraq's oil to Israel, perhaps they're actually trying to help America. The neocons in government believe, as the father of their ideology Leo Strauss did, strongly in the Hebrew Bible. Maybe they think by serving Israel and sacrificing American lives and treasure for the Jewish state, they're protecting America from the Hebrew god who is said to have said in Isaiah 60:12, 'For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee will perish, yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.'
If you believe in the superstitions and myths in the Bible, it would make perfect sense for all people on earth to want nothing more than to serve Israel. The Bible is a very powerful weapon for the neocons and the government of Israel!
