Ron Paul Scares Israel Firsters

An article in the Jewish newspaper, “Forward,” illustrates the intense fear that Ron Paul is causing among the Zionists. It is not that they think he will become president, but that he might legitimate views that are dangerous to the interests of Israel. It states: “In statements in recent months, Paul has made it clear that he opposes U.S…. foreign aid to all countries, including Israel. He also opposes American military intervention in Iran, even if it moves forward with its plans for nuclear development, which many view as a covert nuclear weapons program, one viewed by Israel as a mortal threat.” It quotes Abe Foxman, National Director of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL),
“’I’m not saying that he is going to win or that the GOP is adopting his views, but what he says does give legitimacy to the kind of things [Professor John] Mearsheimer says,’ argues Foxman, whose group has kept Paul on their radar screens since he entered politics.”

The fundamental thing I would add is that the smears have nothing to do with Paul’s actual political positions, though more than of few these, I grant, would not appeal to statist leftists and liberals. And Weiss does not say he would actually vote for Paul, but he recognizes that Paul does help the anti-war cause: http://mondoweiss.net/2011/12/the-ron-paul-moment-bad-and-good.html

Iraq Facing Civil War (Neocon inspired ‘Surge’ failed)

Iraq Facing Civil War

Iraq is facing a civil war, according to leading figures in the political opposition to President Maliki. They point out that Iraq “has become a battleground of sects, in which identity politics have crippled democratic development.” As I show in my book, “The Transparent Cabal,” this is exactly what American Middle East experts had predicted prior to the US attack. Mor…eover, hard-line Israeli Likudniks, as exemplified in the work of Oded Yinon, not only expected, but sought, such fragmentation and destabilization for all of Israel’s enemies in order to enhance Israel’s security. As I contend in “The Transparent Cabal,” it was this Likudnik thinking that actually underpinned the neocons’ Middle East war agenda despite their propaganda about achieving democracy.

Keep in mind that the neocon inspired Iraq ‘Surge’ was sold so as to bring about stability even after US troops departed Iraq so it has failed like many of US knew it would!

U.S. Doubles Aid to Israel’s Defense Systems (as US cities, counties and states go broke)

U.S. Doubles Aid to Israel’s Defense Systems

House and Senate Appropriations Committees approve $237 million in aid in 2012 to Israel’s anti-missile systems.
By Elad Benari

The United States will double the special aid it gives Israel for the development and implementation of anti-missile systems, the Globes financial newspaper reported on Thursday.
According to the report, the House and Senate’s Committees on Appropriations approved the aid following a request by the U.S. Administration to approve aid totaling $106.1 million for the Arrow 3 anti-ballistic long-range air defense system, for the program to improve the basic capabilities of the Arrow systems, and for the David’s Sling mid-range anti-missile system.
Both Appropriations Committees went far beyond the request, the report noted, and raised the amount of aid from $129 million to $235.7 million in 2012, Globes noted. The report is based on information first published on the Inside Defense website.
The assistance to all three programs is based on an assumption that Israel would allocate identical amounts in its budget to all three programs, Globes noted. The report added that Michael Oren, Israel’s ambassador to the United States, and Aviv Ezra, Counselor for Congressional Affairs at the Embassy of Israel in Washington D.C., played an important role in talks with lawmakers in the months prior to the decision.
Steve Rothman, the U.S. Representative for New Jersey’s 9th congressional district and a member of the United States House Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense, said that the Israel’s anti-missile programs advance U.S. interests in the Middle East.
“The growing distribution of missiles and rockets around the globe, starting with Iran and Hizbullah and ending with Gaza and Syria is a direct threat to U.S. national security,” Rothman was quoted as having told Inside Defense. “Our enemies know they cannot cope with the combined power of the world’s only military superpower and the most powerful military force in the Middle East. This aid is the latest illustration of the unprecedented level of military cooperation and intelligence between the two countries.”
Earlier this week, the Commander of the Third Air Force of the U.S Military, Lt. Gen. Frank Gorenc, arrived in Israel to prepare for a joint training exercise between the Israel Air Force and the U.S. Army.
The ‘Austere Challenge’ (AC) exercise will take place next year and Lt. Gen. Gorenc’s visit will strengthen the ties and coordination between the forces, wrote the IAF website.
