American Bloody Pragmatism: Beware, Israeli War Criminal Are Using False Identities
11 March 2011
By Gilad Atzmon
After killing hundreds of thousands of Muslims in the name of democracy, the
White House has now decided that ‘stability in the region' is by far, much more
On Saturday, The Wall Street journal reported that the Obama administration is
devising a new Middle East strategy in the face of ongoing Arab world turmoil,
preferring stability over democracy for key allies in the region.
Here in Britain not many people believed Bush and Blair when they preached
democracy and moral interventionism -- And I guess that the new American
strategy cannot be taken at all seriously either.
Actually, I believe that by now, the American ruling elite should just come
clean and tell the truth to the Arabs in the region: ‘listen you guys -- all we
want is your oil. We don't care what you do with your life, or what you believe
in; just keep the flow of this dark greasy lubricant stable.'
I wonder; why is it so difficult for the American and British governments to
produce such a simple statement? After all; is not telling the truth a Western
The report contended that the new American policy is due to domestic U.S.
criticism that the Obama administration had sent mixed messages in the initial
stages of the Egyptian uprising, and that the ambiguity and confusion had led to
the ousting of President Mubarak, a longtime Western ally : The White House had
tentatively endorsed Mubarak's leadership at the beginning of the protests --
and then switched allegiances, throwing full support behind the protesters, who
eventually overthrew the three-decade Egyptian president.
I do not entirely agree that Obama had behaved in a confusing or inconsistent
manner -- I think that the White House policy is, actually, very coherent and
very consistent, for it constantly bounces and swings between backing the
people, and then the tyrants. When the Americans are convinced that the success
of the revolution is immanent -- they support the people. But when they are
certain that oppression and tyranny will continue to ‘provide the goods' (cheap
oil) then they simply go ahead and support their traditional undemocratic
Surely it is about time to state the obvious : It is not morality; it is not
values, and neither is it any ethical consideration that drives our leaders.
Rather, it is sheer pragmatism, and relentless greed.
Beware, Israeli War Criminal Are Using False Identities
Israeli Ynet reports today that IDF Spokesperson assumed false name to avoid
arrest for 'war crimes' in Britain.
In an interview with the British magazine Defense News, IDF Spokesperson Avi
Benayahu revealed he had recently flown to Britain using a pseudonym so as to
avoid getting arrested and investigated for war crimes.
When asked about the fact that IDF officers are threatened with mass protests
and arrest warrants even in friendly countries like Britain, Benayahu replied:
"It's true. In my last visit to London, I had to assume a false name because
well-funded anti-Israel activists are exploiting universal jurisdiction powers
to wage law fare against us."
I guess that Israeli political and military leaders start to grasp the possible
outcome of their criminal actions. The message to the British immigration
authorities is clear; beware, open your eyes, Israeli war criminals are clearly
attempting to enter the United Kingdom using false identities.
