The Israeli-US love affair

Paul J. Balles | Redress | 18 July 2010


Paul J. Balles views the aspects of the Israeli-US love affair that American politicians and media prefer not to talk about, from US taxpayer subsidies for illegal Jewish settlements and nuclear technology transfer to Israel, to the virtual licensing of Israeli spying on the USA itself.

Occasionally someone asks why I often carry on about Israel and America. My response: Israel continues to break all the rules of respectable national behaviour with unabashed US support.

The only way to stop that? Have truth reach enough people about American support for Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians and using American warmongers to advance Israel’s destructive goals.
"...the US Treasury is helping to promote illegal Israeli settlements in the West Bank by granting tax exemptions to US groups that funnel money into them.”

Paul Wachter, CEO, Main Street Advisers

The relationship between Israel and the US becomes more disgusting every day. That's an opinion shared by scholars and commentators who are often ignored by the mainstream media.

According to Professor Norman Finklestein, "Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu discussing their countries' foreign relations resembles two lovers discussing their future together."

Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Main Street Advisors, Paul Wachter, reports that "A New York Times investigation revealed that the US Treasury is helping to promote illegal Israeli settlements in the West Bank by granting tax exemptions to US groups that funnel money into them. These specific settlements aren't only illegal under international law, but also under Israeli law."

Who pays? The American taxpayer. Who suffers? America and the rest of the world.

Revealing the capacity of Zionist-conservative propaganda to brainwash the American public, UPI reports, "One-third, 33 per cent, say the seven-year war in Iraq has been a success, 36 per cent say it is a failure and 31 per cent are unsure."

It’s now perfectly clear that Israel promoted the bombing, invasion and occupation of Iraq based on fraudulent intelligence. Despite that fact, one-third of Americans believe it has been a success.

Has the cost of more than a trillion dollars to American taxpayers been a successful part of the Iraq fiasco?

On another issue, the Obama administration makes it clear that they believe "Israel has the right to nuclear capability for deterrence purposes".
“When will the US learn that Israel's ‘nuclear capacity’ does not deter? It incites.”

Ha'aretz correspondent Barak Ravid writes: "The president [Obama] told the prime minister [Netanyahu] he recognizes that Israel must always have the ability to defend itself, by itself, against any threat or possible combination of threats, and that only Israel can determine its security needs."

When will the US learn that Israel's "nuclear capacity" does not deter? It incites.

There's no doubt that America has cooperated with Israel's nuclear development, technically and financially. Israel has thumbed its nose at all requests that they sign the nuclear non-proliferation treaty.

Equally bad is the news that “Citizens Action to Dismantle Nuclear Weapons Completely” has prepared a 33-page report showing the presence of tens of tons of depleted uranium in the Gaza Strip, where its insidious radiation has long-term effects.

TBR News has reported that Comverse Infosys, a subsidiary of an Israeli-run private telecommunications firm, has offices throughout the US. It provides wiretapping equipment for law enforcement.
“Operatives from Israel's spy agency Mossad operate freely in America as spies for Israel. When caught, they are quietly released and deported.”

TBR News says: "Investigative reports also indicate that these offices have been and are being used as bases for intelligence operations directed against the United States via the Mossad agents working in this country."

Operatives from Israel's spy agency Mossad operate freely in America as spies for Israel. When caught, they are quietly released and deported. Israelis have even operated freely in the Pentagon, headquarters of the US Defence Department.

According to Karen Kwiatkowski, former Political-Military Affairs Officer at the Pentagon, “high clearances were granted to Israelis and Likudniks who would march through the halls of the Pentagon”.

What about the leaders? Professor Adel Safty pinpoints “the changing nature of the relationship between Netanyahu and Obama from public confrontation to cordiality, public praise and various demonstrations of American support for Israel...”

Will the public ever tire of the sick US-Israel love affair?
