AIPAC’s WINEP pushing Syrian intervention for Israel

Listen to what Israel lobby (AIPAC) spin-off think tank (Washington Institute for Near East Policy – WINEP) mouthpiece Jeffrey White said about Syria on C-SPAN’s ‘Washington Journal’ this morning (also fits with what James Morris said on Russia Today’s ‘Crosstalk’ via http://tinyurl.com/jamesmorrisoncrosstalk with regard to going after Syria to weaken Iran and cut off Hezbollah!):

CBS News correspondent Allan Pizzey just mentioned (at the end of the following CBS News segment which didn’t include his ending comments to Scott Pelley which I heard on air) that civil war in Syria would be good for Israel (such is why the Israel lobby has been encouraging such in accordance with Israeli Likudnik Oded Yinon’s ‘Strategy for Israel in the 1980’s’ via http://cosmos.ucc.ie/cs1064/jabowen/IPSC/articles/article0005345.html which James Morris mentioned on Russia Today via http://tinyurl.com/jamesmorrisoncrosstalk and during his Press TV interviews at http://tinyurl.com/ronpaulvsmittromney):

  • Jeff Blankfort says:

    If one requires proof that the leaders of the “acceptable” Syrian opposition are working hand and glove with the ZIONTERN, check out who is coming to the annual conference of the AIPAC spawned Washington Inst. for Near East Policy and speaking off the record: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article34846.htm Just to give you a hint, in an off
    the record session at 4 PM, those privileged to attend will hear from Col. Abdul Hamid Zakaria, commander and spokesman for the Free Syrian Army; and Col. Abdul Jabbar Akidi, Free Syrian Army commander and head of the Revolutionary Military Council in Aleppo, who will participate in what the conference schedule describes as “a breakout discussion titled, “Inside Syria: The Battle Against Assad’s Regime.

    To add to the evidence, check out the Fikra Forum, an online website project of WINEP which was established early in the Syrian uprising, designed to capture Arab intellectuals and bring them into the Zionist fold. If one goes to the Fikra site and clicks on About Us, this is what will be found:

    “Fikra Forum is an online community that aims to generate ideas to support Arab democrats in their struggle with authoritarians and extremists. At a time of dramatic change across the region, Fikra Forum is the first near real-time, fully translated Arabic-English blog to provide a two-way platform for those in the region seeking to shape the future of their countries and U.S.-based decision makers and opinion leaders who are trying to understand and support those efforts.

    “As the aftershocks of the political earthquakes that began in Tunisia and Egypt are felt across the region, Fikra Forum focuses on what comes next, asking its contributors to imagine what the impact of all of this change will be on the region—and the world.

    “We believe that promoting dialogue in this way will grant timely, mutual direct access to an exchange of ideas between those on the ground and those in Washington as they consider together the future of their respective countries and U.S. relations with the Arab world.”

    Notice, not a word about it being the spawn of WINEP/AIPAC. One has to go to the WINEP website and under research programs you will find all about it: http://www.washingtoninstitute.org/about/research-programs/project-fikra/

    Does anyone seriously think these Israeli agents care anything about the people of Syria or anyone else in the region who isn’t Jewish?

    One final point. It is impossible to argue that the response of the Syrian government to the uprising has been disproportionally violent. But that, in fact, is what the outside forces that co-opted the peaceful protesters early on were counting on. They knew, as any well informed person should know, that ANY government, whatever its base or political system, will respond to an armed insurrection with disproportionate force which will further alienate the people feeling that force from the government exercising it.

    In Aleppo, for example, where the uprising had yet to take hold, fighters from outside the city infiltrated into heavily populated civilian areas and began attacking government positions, knowing that the government forces would respond with attacks on those positions which would end up killing civilians while those whose own attacks brought on the mayhem escaped. It’s an old game and why those who naively paint the situation in Syria as “good guys” vs. “bad guys” can’t see this is beyond me.

    Furthermore, those demanding that Assad step down prior to any negotiations are, themselves, endorsing further killing of civilians and taking the side of the US,UK, France and, of course, the Saudis and Qataris who see this as a struggle to regain Sunni power after the US facilitated Shia takeover of Iraq after 300 years of Sunni control, and demanding not that the killing stop but that Assad leave and go into exile.

  • If the unequivocal support from the outset for the “Syrian revolution” from AIPAC/WINEP’s Fikra Forum isn’t enough to settle it, there’s also the “humanitarian concern” for the Syrian people shown by a former Israeli PM’s brother… As I wrote in February 2012,

    Although Josef Olmert predicted elsewhere a “chaotic transition” in which “the violence that will unfold in Syria will dwarf everything that we have witnessed until now,” he assures Fikra Forum readers that “all support that could enable the FSA to continue and intensify its operations, alongside the continuing popular resistance, will help shorten the days of the dictatorship and save the lives of many innocent Syrians.”
