Israel’s declaration of war

Israel’s declaration of war

It’s come to my attention that certain well-connected Israelis are angry at me for insisting that Ismail Bakr, Mohammed Bakr, Ahed Bakr, and Zakaria Bakr were murdered by Hamas as part of an elaborate deception operation that took place on the beach at Gaza, July 16, 2014. I said that if the plan to discredit me goes forth, I’ll stop defending Israel. Well, that was stupid of me. What’s happening to Israel is more important than my own feelings and those of people who disagree with me. So I won’t stop, regardless. Besides, Israel has virtually issued a declaration of war, so I’ll have to write about the now-inevitable conflict.

Before I describe that, I’ll mention that the Europe Israel Press Association has published a long article about my theory that the killing of the Bakr boys was a Hamas military deception operation.

It appears that someone had access to the interview I gave Pierre Rehov for his film War Crimes in Gaza. By clicking that link, you can donate to publicize the film and get a sneak peek at it.

The article published by the Europe Israel Press Association is based on the unedited interview, not the film. Very interesting. So that information is being disseminated after all.

When I gave the interview to Mr. Rehov, I immediately forgot everything I said. I was concentrating so hard on controlling my stutter and appearing calm that I was totally in the present. As soon as the interview was over, I had no idea what had come out of my mouth.

What struck me about the article is how plausible the theory is. I sound like I know what I’m talking about.

On to Israel’s declaration of war.

As you know, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Russia, and China are negotiating with Iran on ending the Persian quest for nuclear weapons. The negotiations are a farce. Deadlines aren’t met, and the Iranians renege on every agreement they make.

The Americans pushing for this deal are clowns. On April 27, 2009, President Obama took a joyride in Air Force One, buzzing New York City.

The official story is that the president wasn’t on board, and it was a photo op arranged by Louis Caldera, director of the White House Military Office, but that’s ridiculous. There isn’t even the slightest chance that Caldera decided entirely on his own to have the presidential 747 and its military escort fly low over the scene of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

No, the president took his friends on a joyride, and then lied about it. This is the photo that the Air Force released.

It’s a cruddy snapshot taken from the F-16 escort. You can see part of the pilot reflected on the inside of the canopy in the upper right corner. The president was big-timing it. He has no respect whatsoever for the office.

“MAKE NO MISTAKE: WE’RE HAVING SOME FUN NOW, HUH? GIMMIE ANOTHER MIMOSA! WHOOP-WHOOP!”

Secretary of State John Kerry, on the other hand, spent over thirty years beginning every other sentence with “When I was in Vietnam.”

In Vietnam Kerry commanded a US Navy PCF (Patrol Craft Fast), also known as a Swift boat.

Kerry served in combat from December 6, 1968, to March 25, 1969, slightly less than four months. That’s the entirety of his experience under fire. He then asked that he be returned to the US. Having been awarded three Purple Heart medals for three extremely minor wounds, Kerry’s request was granted. For years he claimed that he had gone on a secret mission into Cambodia, but when people finally took the time to check, they discovered that he lied.

Both President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry are deeply unserious men. They’re self-deluding narcissists who’ve walled themselves off from the world. While they’re the stars of never-ending movies that run in their heads, the rest of us are merely extras. Uncredited extras. We don’t even have names.

Well, one of the most serious men on the face of the earth is Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu. Here’s part of what he recently said about the fraudulent deal being worked out with Iran.

I am not impressed by the potholes in the nuclear talks. To my regret, what we are seeing are Iran’s increasing demands, and the major powers’ concessions which are also increasing, in keeping with the Iranian pressure. This agreement is going from a bad agreement to a worse agreement, and is becoming worse by the day.

In effect, it is paving Iran’s way to being not only a major power with one or two nuclear bombs, but with an unlimited arsenal within a decade with the possibility of achieving several atomic bombs beforehand, by violating the monitoring which, in any case, is full of holes.

Above all, in addition to this, the agreement also gives Iran many billions of dollars, apparently hundreds of billions of dollars, within a short time, which will allow it to finance its increasing aggression, first of all the murderous stranglehold it is using around the State of Israel, but also in other parts of the Middle East that are subject to its aggression, such as Yemen, Iraq and many other places.

Therefore, there is both a conventional threat and a non-conventional threat, which in my view will heighten the nuclear arms race in the Middle East. For all of these reasons, this is a bad agreement.

I appreciate the fact that there is a broad consensus within the State of Israel against this agreement. There are also increasing voices in the West against this agreement; they understand the significance its implementation would have on global security, theirs as well. But, as has been said, this debate is still taking place. I think it is important that Israel’s voice be heard, along with that of many others.

Up until a few days ago, I thought that a regional war would be avoided, but it’s now clear that President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry will agree to everything the Iranians demand. There isn’t even a pretense of negotiation anymore. The Iranians are setting all the terms.

This is happening for two reasons:

1. Both President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry are loathe to admit that they’ve failed, so they’re counting on Israel to take military action to solve the problem that they created.

2. Both President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry personally loathe Prime Minister Netanyahu, so they’re forcing Israel into war as punishment.

I miscalculated the vindictiveness of the people running my government. It’s obvious that Israel has built a new type of bunker buster, the high-velocity penetrating weapon (HVPW).

The demonstration of this weapon on April 20, 2015, created a Bizarro World effect that I hadn’t anticipated. The result was exactly the opposite of what it should’ve been.

Now that the US knows that Israel and the Sunni Arab states have the capability to destroy the Iranian nuclear program, the negotiations will continue, even though they’re cheap theater. The responsibility for stopping Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons has been lifted from the shoulders of President Obama. He can blithely promise Iran anything, because he’s depending on Israel and the Sunni Arabs to blow the hell out of the intransigent Iranians, who have been spoiled into believing that they’re invincible.

Then the president can condemn Israel and absolve himself of any blame.

Israel has said in plain language that she’ll take action. I support her 100 percent. The war will be over quickly, and it will result in the eradication of Hezbollah and the Iranian nuclear threat. Count on it. The Iranian mullahs will wish their mothers had never met their fathers. They’re bringing inconceivable calamity down on their own heads. But they deserve every atom of it.

When people leave you no other choice, there’s no reason to feel bad about what you must do.
