Iraq: A War For Israel

05 January, 2006

By Mark Weber


The United States Invasion of Iraq in March-April 2003, and the occupation of the country since then, has cost more than fifteen hundred American lives and many tens of billions of dollars, and has brought death to many thousands of Iraqis.

Why did President Bush decide to go to war? In whose interests was it launched?
 
In the months leading up to the attack, President Bush and other high-ranking US officials repeatedly warned that the threat posed to the US and world by the Baghdad regime was so grave and imminent that the United States had to act quickly to bomb, invade and occupy Iraq.
 
On September 28, 2002, for example, he said: "The danger to our country is grave and it is growing. The Iraqi regime possesses biological and chemical weapons, is rebuilding the facilities to make more and, according to the British government, could launch a biological or chemical attack in as little as 45 minutes after the order is given... This regime is seeking a nuclear bomb, and with fissile material could build one within a year.
 
"On March 6, 2003, President Bush declared: "Saddam Hussein and his weapons are a direct threat to this country, to our people, and to all free people... I believe Saddam Hussein is a threat to the American people. I believe he`s a threat to the neighborhood in which he lives. And I`ve got good evidence to believe that. He has weapons of mass destruction... The American people know that Saddam Hussein has weapons of mass destruction." These claims were untrue. As the world now knows, Iraq had no dangerous "weapons of mass destruction," and posed no threat to the US. Moreover, alarmist suggestions that the Baghdad regime was working with the al-Qaeda terror network likewise proved to be without foundation.
 
So if the official reasons given for the war were untrue, why did the United States attack?
 
Whatever the secondary reasons for the Iraq war, the crucial factor in President Bush`s decision to attack was to help Israel. With support from Israel and America`s Jewish-Zionist lobby, and prodded by Jewish "neo-conservatives" holding high-level positions in his administration, President Bush — who was already fervently committed to Israel — resolved to invade and subdue one of Israel`s chief regional enemies. This is so widely understood in Washington that US Senator Ernest Hollings was moved in May 2004 to acknowledge that the US invaded Iraq "to secure Israel," and "everybody" knows it. He also identified three of the influential pro-Israel Jews in Washington who played an important role in prodding the US into war: Richard Perle, chair of the Pentagon`s Defense Policy Board; Paul Wolfowitz, Deputy Defense Secretary; and Charles Krauthammer, columnist and author. [1]
 
Hollings referred to the cowardly reluctance of his Congressional colleagues to acknowledge this truth openly, saying that "nobody is willing to stand up and say what is going on." Due to "the pressures we get politically," he added, members of Congress uncritically support Israel and its policies.
 
Some months before the invasion, retired four-star US Army General and former NATO Supreme Allied Commander Wesley Clark said in an interview:
 
"Those who favor this attack [by the US against Iraq] now will tell you candidly, and privately, that it is probably true that Saddam Hussein is no threat to the United States. But they are afraid at some point he might decide if he had a nuclear weapon to use it against Israel." [2]

Fervently Pro-Israel
 
President Bush`s fervent support for Israel and its hardline premier is well known. He reaffirmed it, for example, in June 2002 in a major speech on the Middle East. In the view of "leading Israeli commentators," the London Times reported, the address was "so pro-Israel that it might have been written by Ariel Sharon." [3]
 
Condoleeza Rice, Bush`s National Security Advisor, echoed the President`s outlook in a May 2003 interview, saying that the "security of Israel is the key to security of the world." [4]
 
In an address to pro-Israel activists at the 2004 convention of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), Bush said: "The United States is strongly committed, and I am strongly committed, to the security of Israel as a vibrant Jewish state." He also told the gathering: "By defending the freedom and prosperity and security of Israel, you`re also serving the cause of America." [5]
 
Long Range Plans
 
Jewish-Zionist plans for war against Iraq had been in place for years.
 
In mid-1996, a policy paper prepared for then-Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu outlined a grand strategy for Israel in the Middle East. Entitled "
A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm," it was written under the auspices of an Israeli think tank, the Institute for Advanced Strategic and Political Studies. Specifically, it called for an "effort [that] can focus on removing Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq, an important Israeli strategic objective in its own right..." [6]
 
The authors of "A Clean Break" included Richard Perle, Douglas Feith, and David Wurmser, three influential Jews who later held high-level positions in the Bush administration, 2001-2004: Perle as chair of the Defense Policy Board, Feith as Undersecretary of Defense, and Wurmser as special assistant to the Undersecretary of State for Arms Control.
 
The role played by Bush administration officials who are associated with two major pro-Zionist "neoconservative" research centers has come under scrutiny from The Nation, the influential public affairs weekly. [7]
 
The author, Jason Vest, examined the close links between the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA) and the Center for Security Policy (CSP), detailing the ties between these groups and various politicians, arms merchants, military men, wealthy pro-Israel American Jews, and Republican presidential administrations.
 
JINSA and CSP members, notes Vest, "have ascended to powerful government posts, where... they`ve managed to weave a number of issues — support for national missile defense, opposition to arms control treaties, championing of wasteful weapons systems, arms aid to Turkey and American unilateralism in general — into a hard line, with support for the Israeli right at its core... On no issue is the JINSA/CSP hard line more evident than in its relentless campaign for war — not just with Iraq, but `total war,` as Michael Ledeen, one of the most influential JINSAns in Washington, put it... For this crew, `regime change` by any means necessary in Iraq, Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia and the Palestinian Authority is an urgent imperative."
 
Samuel Francis, author, editor and columnist, has also looked into the "neo-conservative" role in fomenting war. [8]
 
"My own answer," he wrote, "is that the lie [that a massively-armed Iraq posed a grave and imminent threat to the US] was fabricated by neo-conservatives in the administration whose first loyalty is to Israel and its interests and who wanted the United States to smash Iraq because it was the biggest potential threat to Israel in the region. They are known to have been pushing for war with Iraq since at least 1996, but they could not make an effective case for it until after Sept. 11, 2001...
 
"What has been happening inside the Bush administration is no less a nest of treason than the Soviet spy rings of the New Deal era, and if political reality doesn`t demand its exposure, simple loyalty to the United States does."
 
In the aftermath of the 2001 Nine-Eleven terror attacks, ardently pro-Zionist "neo-conservatives" in the Bush administration — who for years had sought a Middle East war to bolster Israel`s security in the region — exploited the tragedy to press their agenda. In this they were backed by the Israeli government, which also pressured the White House to strike Iraq.
 
The Jerusalem correspondent for the Guardian, the respected British daily, reported in August 2002: "Israel signaled its decision yesterday to put public pressure on President George Bush to go ahead with a military attack on Iraq, even though it believes Saddam Hussein may well retaliate by striking Israel." [9]
 
Three months before the US invasion, the well-informed Washington journalist Robert Novak reported that Israeli Prime Minister Sharon was telling American political leaders that "the greatest US assistance to Israel would be to overthrow Saddam Hussein`s Iraqi regime." Moreover, added Novak, "that view is widely shared inside the Bush administration, and is a major reason why US forces today are assembling for war." [10]
 
Israel`s spy agencies were a "full partner" with the US and Britain in producing greatly exaggerated prewar assessments of Iraq`s ability to wage war, a former senior Israeli military intelligence official has acknowledged. Shlomo Bron, a brigadier general in the Israel army reserves, and a senior researcher at a major Israeli think tank, said that intelligence provided by Israel played a significant role in supporting the US and British case for making war. Israeli intelligence agencies, he said, "badly overestimated the Iraqi threat to Israel and reinforced the American and British belief that the weapons [of mass destruction] existed." [11]
 
For some Jewish leaders, the Iraq war is part of a long-range effort to install Israel-friendly regimes across the Middle East. Norman Podhoretz, a prominent Jewish writer and an ardent supporter of Israel, has been for years editor of Commentary, the influential Zionist monthly. In the Sept. 2002 issue he wrote: "The regimes that richly deserve to be overthrown and replaced are not confined to the three singled-out members of the axis of evil [Iraq, Iran, North Korea]. At a minimum, the axis should extend to Syria and Lebanon and Libya, as well as `friends` of America like the Saudi royal family and Egypt`s Hosni Mubarak, along with the Palestinian Authority, whether headed by Arafat or one of his henchmen."
 
Patrick J. Buchanan, the well-known writer and commentator, and former White House Communications director, has been blunt in identifying those who pushed for war: [12]
 
"We charge that a cabal of polemicists and public officials seek to ensnare our country in a series of wars that are not in America`s interests. We charge them with colluding with Israel to ignite those wars and destroy the Oslo Accords. We charge them with deliberately damaging US relations with every state in the Arab world that defies Israel or supports the Palestinian people`s right to a homeland of their own. We charge that they have alienated friends and allies all over the Islamic and Western world through their arrogance, hubris, and bellicosity..."
 
Cui Bono? For whose benefit these endless wars in a region that holds nothing vital to America save oil, which the Arabs must sell us to survive? Who would benefit from a war of civilizations between the West and Islam?"
 
Answer: one nation, one leader, one party. Israel, Sharon, Likud."
 
Uri Avnery — an award-winning Israeli journalist and author, and a three-time member of Israel`s parliament — sees the Iraq war as an _expression of immense Jewish influence and power. In an essay written some weeks after the US invasion, he wrote: [13]
 
"Who are the winners? They are the so-called neo-cons, or neo-conservatives. A compact group, almost all of whose members are Jewish. They hold the key positions in the Bush administration, as well as in the think-tanks that play an important role in formulating American policy and the ed-op pages of the influential newspapers... The immense influence of this largely Jewish group stems from its close alliance with the extreme right-wing Christian fundamentalists, who nowadays control Bush`s Republican party. ..Seemingly, all this is good for Israel. America controls the world, we control America. Never before have Jews exerted such an immense influence on the center of world power."
 
In Britain, a veteran member of Britain`s House of Commons bluntly declared in May 2003 that Jews had taken control of America`s foreign policy, and had succeeded in pushing the US into war. "A Jewish cabal have taken over the government in the United States and formed an unholy alliance with fundamentalist Christians," said Tam Dalyell, a Labour party deputy and the longest-serving House member. "There is far too much Jewish influence in the United States," he added. [14]
 
Summary
 
For many years now, American presidents of both parties have been staunchly committed to Israel and its security. This entrenched policy is an _expression of the Jewish-Zionist grip on America`s political and cultural life. It was fervent support for Israel — shared by President Bush, high-ranking administration officials and nearly the entire US Congress — that proved crucial in the decision to invade and subdue one of Israel`s greatest regional enemies.
 
While the unprovoked US invasion of Iraq may have helped Israel, just as those who wanted and planned for the war had hoped, it has been a calamity for America and the world. It has cost tens of thousands of lives and many tens of billions of dollars. Around the world, it has generated unmatched distrust and hostility toward the US. In Arab and Muslim countries, it has fueled intense hatred of the United States, and has brought many new recruits to the ranks of anti-American terrorists.
 
Americans have already paid a high price for their nation`s commitment to Israel. We will pay an ever higher price — not just in dollars or international prestige, but in the lives of young men squandered for the interests of a foreign state — until the Jewish-Zionist hold on US political life is finally broken.

that is a lot of fonny balonny. israel is the chosen land and God's chosen people if you have a problem with that then you are not for God no matter what religion you are. If you have a problem with the USA helping God's chosen people then there is a problem with your head. As you can tell I am very offended by this paper and the ideas implyed in it. The lord is leading the US in the ways of the lord God Almighty and you seem to have a problem with the US going the right way. I am not a Jewish but I feel that the Jews have been picked on enought now they are getting picked on on the world wide web. Oh, now that is even worse than all of the Nazis did. because then they could do something about it now what can they do? They can write a letter and say, "PLEASE DONT SAY ANYTHING AGAINST ISRAEL, IT'S NOT VERY NICE, PLEASE STOP."

Cut Israel some slack after all one little counrty against the whole Middle East with the #1 country against them. now that is a pretty picture. and feel free to read this to anyone you please and may the lord show you the true way to love and live in the way only JESUS can. God bless America, AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Israel and Iraq War

This attacking Iraq of the United States denying the U.N and almost all the Senior politicians and religious leadership is never only to secure Isreal. Isreal is used by the U.S like a precious item in a shop which the Shopkeeper cleans rubs and shouts for to increase the value and to make it clear that he takes too much care of it. Thus U.S earns from that.
President Bush considered the attack like a game on computer and thought that that will be just his pressing of the button and thousands will die and the land will come into his hands. Not only that but while the U.S forces were leaving the shore he had warned Iran and Syria for to face a similar fate.
All that was to occupy the land with oil and all the resources. Saddam was never ever the enemy of U.S as upon the U.S signal for years the Iran-Iraq war continued in which weapons of all kinds were supplied to Saddam Hussain. All this happened because of the wrong policies of Mr.Bush and those who have sided with him. There is no religious group involved in that but only the Heroic plan of Mr.Bush which killed a lot of innocent civilian population of the area.

Iraq Conflict

The United States of America being the strongest power on earth could not bear that and inspite of much opposition attacked Iraq. If its occupation of Iraq would have been a success then Mr. Bush would have been a Hero but now that is condemned as much human life , dollars and machinery has been lost and that is continued.
As far as protection of Israel is concerned that is the question that keeps Europe in alliance with America. Even if a quarrel arises then Israel is always in a threat to be become a battlefield. It would have been far better for Israel to come to a conclusion with Muslim countries and not to win allaince from outer regions.
The best solution of Israel is that a confideration of all the states (Jordon, labenon, Palestine) around Syria including Israel be made having no preference to any religious group.

A war for Israel

To Mark Weber

Excellent Article, well written factual information
Compiled with good reference to read in detail.
For your honest intention you need my kind of
Personal technical political perspective knowledge.
King Fahd had lost Islam in Casino. King Faisal had
To die for war was being waged to kill Islamic General
Gazi Salahuddin Kurd tribe –Turks who had revived Islam.
Moses had saved Jews via painted door of
Pharaoh .Moses as potential Pharaoh chief abstained.Instead
Moses brought Jews via Suez Canal for safety in Sinai
Desert. I criss crossed their path via canal sinai via boat after
Israel was established. They are holding POW
Few related pious figures for 35 yrs. Imagine civilized
Blair Bush Martin countries where they are gambling in this
Modern age, creating their history above God own ethics
by force of inclusion or exclusion the Frail POW in 60s,
70s, 80s (age) who have not stepped out to see doctor or dentist
for 3 decades. One with name resembling Jerusalem after seeing
Moses ten commandment movie with me fell in their hand.
Other name Christ resembling church with babies came direct
from Nazi holocaust camp while Hitler searched holy grail.
These gamblers have been conducting live experiments to
promote themselves while media suppressed vital info all these years.
Similar is my plight. With English trade learned in finest EU/American
Institution I am also pow for decades surviving by trade.They
Replicate and may have murdered one innocent one
Impersonating .Bush or others create family owned America or Europe or ..
Or so called Karachi Inc .Let me remind you their forced Iraq Iran war
while dumping Haz chemical in Halabja of Kurd tribe. Moses was
angry and hurled curse on gold bullion dancers.Jews never
flourished since then. Moses 's Sinai means what? Any hope
For said POW freedom by consensus? Sin is sin… ai.. is American Israel war
Or American Islam alliance or ai (fallen as pow after landing) what?

Richard W. Symonds, Ukraine - 06 January, 2006

you agree with it?!?!?!?!?!?!

is there a problem with the US helping Isreal?
Printing the truth yes, but is it that terrible for the us to help and stick up for someone? if you had a little brother and someone was picking on him you would stick up for him even if it was a whole group of bullies. The bible says that any country that goes up against Israel will go down. the UK is great and i would love to go to it, there is so much flavorand history in the UK. i would love just to walk around and see all the sights but how would you like it if you had the world powers (all of them) going up against the UK without any help at all. just to add flavor, imagine that you were all kicked out of the UK and then when it was given back it was torn to shreads and then all the world just wanted to kill everyone of you! there would be no wepons left for anyone to help fight and yet you have to leave when you just got back!

God bless the UK, the US, and Israel!!!!!!!!!!
AMEN

Iraq invasion without wmd

Mark Weber, you said it "Bush invaded Iraq because
According to the British government or rather Tony

This regime is seeking a nuclear bomb, so USA rushed

The united states christians in general will always be pro jewish from now on based on prophecies. They wish to restore with their kingdom coming. What is not understood is how interested christians are in the arabs as a group of related cousins jews, esp egyptians. To under estimate how deeply interested christians are in these groups is to not understand how history is made.
Veri chip is by and large the biggest threat to the world and the christians are there to save the world from it and they are. Some form of luke warm religion let veri beast get away with it and the christians are very interested in both jews and arabs as groups that fit into ancient prophecies.
The muse now is Egypt and Jordan and as usual Lebanon and to under estimate how deeply involved christians feel to Israel and also aware of prophecies is to under estimate how and why things happen as they do.
Christians see arabs as related jews
of ancient Israel and dont see the division there as Israel does it. They are very interested in both groups and that interest is not going to wane over conflicts but increase. Americans were unusually upset about abused arabs who they muse over for they see them as jews and when u think about it most of them are jewish.
In christian prophecies tribe judah of Jesus is going to finally take Israel and its apt to be the not so rich quards of judah and some of those are mad at Israel but they will also quard israel.
I think Egypt already quards Israel and wants more. In prophecy god called Egypt MY PEOPLE with MY INHERITANCE suggesting a merger of the two warring groups. After all Egypt saved baby Jesus and he may be saving them. God is mysterious but he does not change.

United Arab Emirates. Correction

Apologies - pressed the wrong "Country". I am not from the United Arab Emirates. I am from the United Kingdom.

Richard W. Symonds, Pakistan - 14 January, 2006

Mr. Weber is a holocaust denial mouthpiece.

It is truly a shame a that the Pak Times would promote the thought that the war in Iraq, against a dictator that murdered hundreds of thousands of Muslims, is now concieved as a war sponsored by Israel.
In your first paragraphs, Mr. Weber, you state that Israel had been drawing up some sort of plan to get Saddam. And why shouldn't they? Are you forgeting that during the first war for Kuwait that Saddam lobbed Scuds into Israel trying to goad them into a military response? Remember that? Saddam was trying to divide the Muslim countries and divert attention into a "holy war against Zionists"?
Mr. Weber, your attempt to portray the war on terror as a Zionist scheme it sadly typical of the holocaust denial groups you support.

James S., United Kingdom - 14 January, 2006

its about the oil stupid!

Hi - I'm resubmitting this comment with a couple spelling corrections. Thank you!

The writer put forth a lot of allegations about the Jews running American foreign policy but not a whole lot of evidence of how the Iraq invasion actually helped Israel's security.

Also there was no mention of the fact that the majority of American Jews opposed the Iraq war, and some of the most prominent activists and writers against the war are Jews. The 'neo-cons' who are Jewish provide a nice cover for the actual and painfully obvious goal of the invasion: Iraq's oil.

Before any elections, the US-installed government of Iraq signed long term contracts with multi-national oil companies, many of them American. The US controls those oil fields now and they are not giving them up. The Bush administration is packed with far more oil executives than Jews - Bush and Cheney and Rice. In fact, there are no Jews even in the senior ranks of the administration, whereas there have been two African-Americans. Is this all a plot by African-Americans? Or is the writer of this piece just a bigot?

Secondarily, the invasion is about helping the other industry the Bush gang works in, the munitions and military contracting business. Cheney's former company (which he still owns stock in) is the #1 contractor in Iraq, doing work that used to be done by regular army, and being paid for more than it would have cost the army to do it. The hundreds of billions of dollars America is spending on Iraq isn't going to the Iraqi's - its going in the pockets of Bush's friends and supporters. These creeps have wasted or stolen billions of AMerican tax dollars in this scam, at the cost of the lives of American soldiers (some of them Jews themselves) and Iraqi civilians, and in the process have provided yet another chance for the world to indulge in that popular old European tradition, 'blame the Jews'.

Free Palestine.
Arrest and try the whole neo-con gang.
But don't scape-goat all Jews in the world with no proof whatsoever that the war even benefits Israel.

religions are for illitrate people

hi guys first of all i wuld like to give a compliment to pak tribune. their most of articles are realy good exapt few craps like this article. jews, christians, muslims hidus....... sorry to say.......... but the truth is........ religions are made for illitrate people. to be spiritual is good thing(but not right thing as the existance of GOD is also not proved) but to be religious.... im feeling sorry for thinkin of the writer of this article. US attcked on iraq becoz of their intrests with kuwait and in gulf countries not for any israel or any other reasons. they are are not payin any high prize for supportin israel but infact getting high benifits in terms of oil and political advantage in that region. thats why they are infact investin some money for supportin israel. there was no reason exapt oil why they again attacked on iraq while they knew well, iraq dont have N-bomb. also saddam husain was not realy a good man. he was deserved to be punished. he was a dictator and has used chemical weapons against kurds many times. but this doesnt mean US got lisence to attack on iraq and capture their resources. even president of UN have said attack on iraq was illegal. due to israel they are getting political advantage in that region and thus they can threaten other countries of that region. and in return, they will get more control on oil supply.so they are supporting israel. no other reason

Against Isreal, Against Jesus

Yep! I'm gonna play the Jesus freak card here... Bible Scripture states that if your against Isreal, your against God,(that's the Biblical God by the way). The United States has alot of internal problems that makes it rottoen on the inside and they will reap what they sow but supporting Isreal as a brother in Jesus is righteous in the eyes of the Lord.
Bible Prophecy is unfolding quickly and the Middle East, Europe and Asia are smack dab in the middle of some deadly times if the world nations don't wake up and repent of their sins.
Canada Rocks!

Jessica K - Please do your research on the brutal history and reality of Israel

Jessica K. if that is your real name perhaps you should realize that much of the people who subscribe to the Pak Tribune are Muslims. To call people in any faith "not for God" is misguided presumption and a display of your ignorance and perhaps arrogance. Much of what you read in this forum is unconventional to what you are used to reading or seeing. There are plenty of stations that cater to your brand of tabloid entertainment like Fox, CNN, Washington Post etc. What you are seeing here is a objective based reporting that caters to people with objective based thinking outside of western tabloid journalism. Some articles posted here reflect the hidden side of what you don't see about Israel from a different point of view. You should know that there are many Israeli's, Rabbi's and a lot Jews who don't beleive that Israel should in its present form nor should it be accepted. The TRUTH about is Israel is that it is RACIST state or regime that uses tyrrany and brut force to populate the region with jews only. They claim that it is a secular democracy but in reality only if you are jewish. If you want to deny that point of view that is fine but I suggest that maybe you should educate yourself more why many people disagree with you about Israel.

looks like u move with the wrong crowd jessica.a little knowledge should help u.when the jews of europe were being persecuted throughout europe it was not by the arabs or muslims it was by the fundamental catholics of whom hitler is one.when these jews were persecuted and expelled they chose sanctuary in muslim lands,it was countries like syria,muslim bosnia,iran,and north africa who saved their hides.The israelis would do well to remember this.So they have a quarrel with christian europe and not with musliims. but these were the shephardic jews and not the ashkenazi jews u see today in israel.these ashkenazi jews exploited the holocaust and used it as an industry.these ashkenazi jews are nothing but an extremist racist white christian-zionist group who stole land from the palestinian people and made them homeless for three generations.the israeli soldiers dont hesitate to shoot and kill children as young as eight in the name of defending 'their territory'.these ashkenazis control most of the us media,the wealth and the voice in the govt. weber is so right and his analysis brilliant.the us citizen pays thousands of dollars in tax to fund the war in iraq to appease the jews of israel.u r being fooled.muslims have done u no harm whatsoever.even sept 11 was a sinister plot by the mossad with the strategy of alienating the islamic world from the west.AS fro ur comment that one small country is facing up to the whole of middle east let me tell u that it is not israel has been supplied with the worlds most powerful nuclear weapons and is completely backed by usa.in fact israel is usa in the middle east. the object is to rob middleeast oil impoverish the region completely so that israel rules the waves.the us hopes to be the legal partner in this dangerous scheme but it may in for a shock coz the israelis may show the usa the trick too.

i would also like u to know one thing jessica. if this theory of rightful inhabitants or chosen people is to be taken seriously then every white american who originate from europe should leave the united states and hand over the land which was forcefully occupied after genocide to the native american.This sounds ridiculous i am sure as much as the theory of chosen people does to most thinkers like me.
