Martin Van Creveld: Israel the Mad Dog

By Administrator on Uncategorized

Let’s hand it to Martin Van Creveld, a professor of military history at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, for speaking the mind of nearly half of all Israelis. “The Palestinians should all be deported,” declared Van Creveld in 2003. “The people who strive for this (the Israeli government) are waiting only for the right man and the right time. Two years ago, only 7 or 8 per cent of Israelis were of the opinion that this would be the best solution, two months ago it was 33 per cent, and now, according to a Gallup poll, the figure is 44 percent.”

Actually, according to Haaretz and the Jaffee Center for Strategic Studies, “46 percent of Israel’s Jewish citizens favor transferring Palestinians out of the territories, while 31 percent favor transferring Israeli Arabs out of the country…. In 1991, 38 percent of Israel’s Jewish population was in favor of transferring the Palestinians out of the territories [i.e., militarily occupied land] while 24 percent supported transferring Israeli Arabs,” or rather ethnically cleansing them.

Such a “final solution” to the fact millions of Arabs live in Palestine—and have for centuries—would be a serious violation of the 1949 Geneva Conventions and 1977 Additional Protocols, not that Israel believes in humanitarian law when it comes to Arabs and Muslims. “Israeli-Arabs pose a threat to Israel’s security, according to 61 percent of the Jewish population, while around 80 percent are opposed to Israeli-Arabs being involved in important decisions, such as delineating the country’s borders, up from 75 percent last year and 67 percent in 2000,” Haaretz continues. In other words, a large majority of Israelis believe Arabs should suffer in perpetuity as second class citizens, mere “hew’ers of wood’ and draw’ers of wa’ter,” as described in the Old Testament (Josh. 9:21).

Moreover, Van Crevel boasted “Israel had the capability of hitting most European capitals with nuclear weapons,” a remark especially pertinent now, as the Israelis and Americans claim Iran will do likewise the moment it develops a nuke. “We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets of our air force.” Iran has never made such a remark (or threat) and yet we are told the country is a threat to world peace. “Israel must be like a mad dog, too dangerous to bother,” Van Crevel explained. “Our armed forces are not the thirtieth strongest in the world, but rather the second or third. We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that this will happen before Israel goes under.”

Of course, Israel really has no intention of “hitting most European capitals with nuclear weapons,” as this would be counterproductive to its real agenda—using its nukes and conventional military (lavished with U.S. tax-payer money) to dominate the Muslim and Arab Middle East. “Abdul Sattar Qassem, a professor of political science and former candidate for President in the Palestinian Authority, said Israel wanted all Arabs and Muslims in this region to remain in a ‘perpetual state of strategic and military inferiority….This means they can invade, attack and occupy any rampage through any Arab or Muslim country in this region with impunity,’ he said while speaking during a symposium in Dura Tuesday, marking the 58th anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba, the forced usurpation of Palestine by Zionist Jews,” the Islamic Republic News Agency reports. According to Qassem, it is “imperative that Muslim states seek to create military and strategic parity with Israel” in order “to prevent Israel from annihilating millions of Muslims…. Just imagine if some crazy Jewish fundamentalists take power in Israel, would it be far-fetched to imagine the possibility that these racists would seek to attack neighboring states with nuclear bombs in order to fulfill their messianic aspirations.”

In order to preserve its illegal stockpile of nukes—and thus its trump card against all Muslims in the Middle East—Israel and its collaborators in the corporate media here in America (and Europe) have distorted the words of Iran’s leader, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. In order to assure Iran will be unable to protect itself, Ahmadinejad is now being portrayed as Hitler, as Saddam Hussein was before him. Iran will be shock and awed before it can produce one single nuclear bomb. Iran, not unlike like Iraq, will be broken down into mutually antangonistic bantustans.

Our problem is Israel, not Iran. I fear Israel and its 46 percent of ethnic cleansing and Islam hating fanatics—who are essentially racists, no different than troglodytic members of the KKK or the millions of deluded Germans who believed the racial theories of the Nazi Alfred Rosenberg. I am more worried about our bought and sold Congress—almost all prostituted down to the man and woman—on the AIPAC food chain and the neocon leash. I fear the rabid Van Crevel and his fellow citizens more than I fear Ahmadinejad and the Iranian mullahs.

Rosenberg, at least, suffered the noose as a war criminal at Nuremberg.
