The Enemy Within
The disclosure of yet another round of spying by the Israelis deep into the affairs of the US government comes as no surprise to most people in this part of the world. But what should concern most Americans is how it is done.
These spies are not your covert foreign agents. No indeed. These operatives are Americans who publicly proclaim their allegiance to the flag. They could be your next-door neighbors; mowing the lawn on a Saturday morning or throwing a couple of steaks on the barbecue. But deep down, they foster an unbending loyalty to Zionism and Zionism alone.
And they can be found at all levels of the US government. Recent ones include Assistant Secretary of Defense Douglas Feith; Near East South Asia/Office of Special Plans head William Luti; Feith deputies Harold Rhode, Abram Shulsky and Michael Rubin; Office of Special Plans Col. Bill Brunner; and of course the Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz. Remember him? He was the loudest proponent on why the US should attack Iraq and take out those illusive “weapons of mass destruction”.
Current disclosures of the false data on Iraq provided to the US president suggest that a preponderance of such misinformation has helped in shaping US foreign policy in the region. And this pattern has not been restricted to an isolated incident. Drums are being beaten about the threat of Iran. Israeli spying and twisting of US policies has had a long and uninterrupted history.
From the bombing and killing of 34 US Navy personnel in 1967 on the USS Liberty, followed by a quashed investigation into the tragic incident and continuing to the arrest and subsequent denials by the Israeli government of a mole, an “American” named Jonathan Pollard, deep within the US Naval Intelligence, the Israelis have been very successful at keeping a tight rein on US affairs and foreign policy.
The Israelis cannot do it all alone however. They need Americans for that, Americans whose sworn loyalty is first and foremost to Israel. Americans who eagerly appear on television and convince their people why Iraq or Afghanistan had to be attacked. Americans who shed no sorrow for the lives of over a thousand of their countrymen killed in an unjustified cause. As long as the security of their beloved Israel is guaranteed, everything else is inconsequential.
Following the Sept. 11 attacks, over 200 Israelis were arrested for spying. There were reports of an Israeli film crew setting up gear prior to the attacks. But none of these disclosures went very far. Powerful “American” figures within the US government suppressed further investigation.
When Mordecai Vanunnu squealed on Israel’s development of nuclear weapons, it was “Americans” who tempered the shock of disclosure in their media. When Israel violated countless UN resolutions, and continued with their ethnic cleansing, it was “Americans” who turned the US Department of State into an impotent organ of justice with their countless vetoes.
You don’t have to convince me that US Middle Eastern policy is being dictated by the Israelis. The evidence is there. But what should begin to worry Americans is the presence of the enemy within. An enemy who walks and talks their language, but one who shows no remorse for the shedding of their own blood, all for the sake of Israel.
