American-Israeli Policy Tested by Arab Uprisings

Posted on Feb 1, 2011

By William Pfaff

The events in the Arab world during the past three weeks have ended the era of American-Israeli domination/intimidation of the region. This is all but universally acknowledged outside the United States, although many in Washington refuse to admit it—as does, with considerable concern, the Israeli government in Jerusalem.

The spectacle of confused and confusing administration and State Department responses to the popular uprisings in Tunisia and Yemen, and to the huge mass movement in Egypt, protected by the Egyptian army, as well as prudent prime ministerial change in Jordan, suggests that, until now, no one in an American government office has considered—or been allowed to consider, more likely—that this day would inevitably come.

The presence of the U.S. in the Mideast has lost its ability to intimidate the more than half a billion people who live in the Arab, Egyptian and North African states, once politically united under the Ottoman Turks, and before that under the Arab Caliphates, but which until now have seemed discarded by history.

The reaction of the Israeli government has been more shocking still. There seems to have been panic, rather than the confusion and seeming impotence in Washington—both liberal and conservative Washington, and in whatever other sectors of opinion that these days also exist in in that troubled city, which has yet to emerge from two meaningless and un-won wars fought ostensibly for democracy, and which now is shocked to confront democracy among the Arabs.

Israel, since its defeat of combined Arab armies in 1948, has believed that it could survive in the Middle East only through total military domination of its Arab enemies and control without concessions of the subjects of its military occupation of Palestine. Israel has been supported in this, more or less willingly, by every American administration since that of Dwight Eisenhower—the last to say “no” to Israel.

The contempt initially shown toward Israel’s Arab enemies was ended by the 1973 surprise attack by Egypt and Syria, the rise of Hamas (whose creation Israel over-cleverly supported to counter the Palestine Liberation Organization; how could religious enthusiasts do anything to harm Israel?) and the resistance of Hezbollah to Israel’s 2006 (and second) invasion of Lebanon. The result of that was to give Hezbollah political predominance in Lebanon.

Lebanon is the nation that once, using conciliation rather than intimidation, might have been turned into Israel’s passport to peace with the other Arab countries. Israel’s eyes were already on complete possession of Palestine when I first visited Beirut in 1955. The swagger of the Lebanese then was that, given unrestricted relations, the Lebanese could easily outsmart, out-trade and outwit the Jews. The Zionists should have taken up that challenge.

The Israeli calculation today is that if “Mubarak goes” (which is usually stated as “If America lets Mubarak go”), Egypt goes. If Tunisia goes (same elaboration), Morocco and Algeria go. Turkey has already gone (for which the Israelis have only themselves to blame). Syria is gone (in part because Israel wanted to cut it off from Sea of Galilee water access). Gaza has gone to Hamas, and the Palestine Authority might soon be gone too (to Hamas?). That leaves Israel amid the ruins of a policy of military domination of the region.

Now, it is only America that can save us, Israelis say. But Washington has sent new emissaries to Cairo, undoubtedly to tell Hosni Mubarak that departure in September is not good enough. Now is the time to go—with a graceful acknowledgement of the popular will and good wishes to his successors. He has already named reliable and moderate men to take over, whom the Pentagon and CIA trust. Will that be good enough? I think not. The people do not want a makeover of U.S.-dominated government. I doubt seriously that they would accept the “orderly transition to meet the democratic and economic needs of the people” that Hillary Clinton kindly proposes, adding that America stands “ready to help with the kind of transition that will lead to greater political and economic freedom.” I would imagine that the popular feeling is that they have had quite enough help from Washington.

Would the people accept Mohamed ElBaradei to conduct a transition to elections, the ex-U.N. nuclear agency chief whom Washington considers an enemy? Possibly. The best thing the U.S. can do is to keep out of this, speak only when spoken to and hope that the common sense that has prevailed thus far in Tunisia and Egypt will continue.

The trouble is that the people who are handling these things in Washington are the same ones, or the proteges of the ones, now retired, who were responsible for American policy in the Middle East under both Democratic and Republican administrations since Franklin Roosevelt, late in the Second World War, and made a deal to trade guaranteed security for Saudi Arabia in exchange for guaranteed oil for the U.S. Certainly since President Richard Nixon clapped the Shah of Iran on the back and said, “We restored you to your throne in 1953, young man—I mean, Your Imperial Majesty. From now on, you are our gendarme in the Middle East. Just tell the Pentagon what you need.” Israelis take notice.

“Please help with the taxonomy and the dichotomies.”

Taxonomy?

There is a clear dichotomy between Israeli government policies and the beliefs of Noam Chomsky and many, many others, including Inherit the Wind.

Inherit the Wind should not have to defend himself from attacks by inveterate Jew haters, who seem to blame all Jews for Israeli Government policies. Such attacks only increase the tension and lead to misunderstandings.

I’m sorry if my sarcastic comment was confusing, I couldn’t resist pointing out that Glen Beck and his groups of Tea Partiers are lunatics. This kind of lunacy has been around seemingly forever, and Beck is the primary purveyor of this lunacy today.

U.S. Foreign policy has put us between a rock and a hard place in the Middle East. Events are still unfolding, and it appears that the U.S. Government is in a no win situation. My personal belief is that the U.S. Government should give unqualified support for the democratic forces, but it’s clear that doing so would have repercussions, politically, and geopolitically, and that tensions will be aggravated regardless of U.S. Government action, or lack of action.

Hitler-NAZI stalags. The vast majority of whom are no

You have the “right” to say whatever you want.  You just don’t have the decency to honor those around the world who suffered from genocide when you deliberately misuse the word.

such terminology are the ones who outlived the
Hitler-NAZI stalags. The vast majority of whom are no

The clan that has been misusing such terminology
since the end of WWII, are the religious bigots who
demand favorably preferential treatment for their
clan, on the basis of the murder of a large number of
their forebears, in the Hitler-NAZI holocaust. Riding
on the wave of guilt carried by progeny of the NAZI-
types and sympathy of the western world, the vast
majority of which progeny had nothing to do with
Hitler´s decisions, is typical of israeli dishonesty. 
And the sympathy of the western world has worn thin,
after sixty years of abuse.

Similar to the current limited genocide being
conducted against Palestinians.  A continuation of
the historical genocide conducted five thousand years
ago, and the foibles about a “God” who sanctioned
genocide against tribes, who had accumulated wealth
and lands that the israeli-types coveted, which
tribes were eventually massacred and their properties
stolen.  Which dishonest to the core “clan” was
disavowed by their own God, after three or more
thousand years of their dishonesty, which God
signified disavowal of the covenant by tearing apart
the inner veil of the temple.  Carefully recorded in
historical chronicles written by israeli-types and
others.

Which is why the current year is designated as 2011,
allegedly accurate within four years.
Nowadays, the hitler-types among the clan have this
golden-egg entity called the “Federal Reserve,”  and
adequate influence so as to tell the US presidential
cabinet, and leaders of Congress when to get on and
off the pot.  That is, members who are not Israelis. 
Which dishonest clan now want a total puppet in
Egypt, to cut off all life-sustenance to
Palestinians, and advance internal disruption in
Iran.  The plan is no longer secret.

Zionism is genetically related to Western imperialism and serves its anti-democratic purposes. The survival of Zionism through American military support is masked and justified ideologically as fighting anti-Semitism and promoting democracy. This propaganda now wears laughably thin in the face of Arab resistance to their dictators, while the US not only does very little to assist the democratic uprisings for self-determination but courts their military, having armed them in strategic agreements to secure the region. These unfolding events are wonderful because like Wikileaks they expose for the want of a better expression ‘US foreign policy in the Middle East’ as nothing more than criminal military agression over the sovereignty of Arab nations.

Basically, the term ‘terrorist’ is used against
anyone that Israel is afraid of.

I’ve just heard an Egyptian professor talking on the
BBC World Service, saying that if the West bows to
Israel and Mubarak’s fear-mongering about the Muslim
Brotherhood, they are more likely to make their
nightmares come true.

The fact is, that counter to what Israel and the US
believe, not every Islamic group is a terrorist
organisation, and by constantly vilifying them and
suppressing them, you end up turning them into the
enemy.

This professor said that the most important thing for
Egypt is Proportional Representation, because there
are many diverse and different affiliations in Egypt.
No one singular group should dominate. If that means
that there are some that are anti-Israel and the US,
then so be it. As long as there are also those that
are pro-Western as well, you are likely to have a
more democratic and peaceful government.

However, Israel is determined to make every Muslim
around the world into a villain and a terrorist.
Israel and the US are sadly made up of very insular
and narrow-minded individuals with too much

If it wasn’t a lie, I would say that going to the cia website to find
a list of terrorist nations to ‘firm’ up what our government
considers terrorist nations, you know those homes for ghosts
that so conveniently exist to justify invasions of sovereign
nations and abscond with their natural resources.

I am absolutely sure that a cia list would be very different from
what a literal list of terrorist nations would be because it would
mean that if just one of the cia’s ghosts was in a country, then it
becomes a terrorist nation, a la w.

Maybe a consideration to remember, any such list(s) would be

Nor should you.  But a dictionary and International Law’s definition would differ from your pompous and deliberately misleading definition:

“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in a rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to
mean—neither more nor less.”

So you are using “Genocide” to create a deep, emotional response, since the definition of genocide is to ELIMINATE an ethnic group from life, such as wiping out one million Armenians, 5 million Congolese, nearly a million Rwandans, hundreds of thousands of Yugoslavs—or six million Jews, in an attempt to equate the deaths of roughly 5000-6000 Palestinians since the year 2000 out of a population of approximately 11,000,000 Palestinians in the region.

To call that “genocide” is to deliberately mis-use the word. By no sense of the word is Israel’s actions genocidal.  They may be illegal, even criminal, even a Crime Against Humanity (devised to define the slaughter of 10-17 MILLION by Hitler) but by no rational or HONEST assessment is it genocide.

And I think you know it but are just using that word because it’s inflammatory.  There’s a right-winger who posts here all the time who uses words as irresponsibly as you do.

That’s absolutely right, Sophrosyne; Obama wants to be re-elected, and to accomplish that, he needs wealthy American Jews in his corner (virtually all of whom, Demo or Repub, are pro-Israel, though none of them would ever emigrate there; too dangerous, y’know?).

I’m not as sanguine as most. Unfortunately, Only socialists countries with their emphasis on solidarity seem to be the ones that collapse without firing a shot. The armies of the bourgeois democracies, bourgeois dictatorships have never giving up without mass slaughter. Mubarak has the CIA and the Mossad on his side. The Iranian thugs hired by the CIA come to mind, so do the paid-by-the-USA truck drivers in Chile. Already Israel is whinning about the USA’s lack of support for Mubarak. If the Egyptians win, it will be through an armed struggle, Israel, the USA and Mubarak will make sure a peaceful revolt is doomed. In any case, when the slave kills the master, two men die (Sartre.) The Middle East will never be the same. Israel and the USA beware. They have tasted rebellion, the Middle East, it will not be put down.

Anger against Israel prevents the author from seeing the problem correctly just as

foreign policy makers in the 80s.

I don’t think the average Egyptian protester is being motivated by a hatred of the
US “meddling” as much as the fact that a strongman has been ruling their country
for most of their lifetime. But opportunists are trying to inflame their already
smoldering hatred for Israel in order to reap their political goals from the chaos.

Agreed.

We see in the „nation, Israel“ a dictatorship of
zionists who have been riding on the wave of the
„holocaust“ and a figure of six million, for sixty-
six years.  Whatever documents were signed with
alleged “representatives” of Palestine, none have
been signed granting “Israel” the right to commit
genocide against Palestinians and engulf their
property and lands.  And, with the support of the
USGov “leadership. “

It is an act of dogmatic stupidity that motivates
alleged “leaders” of the USGov, and other western
governments, to grant cart-blanche to such a clan of
demagogues as the zionists that rule “Israel”. 
Continuing to assign more value to the figure of six
million than to all the “allied soldiers” that were
killed in WWII is simply inequitable.  Or, has the
guilt morphed into recognition and lust for some of
the power that the zionists have acquired since WWII,
and the prominence to which the MOSSAD has risen ?

What I would like to see is for young Israelis to rise up against THEIR religious regime that is rapidly becoming a dictatorship just like the young Egyptians are doing.  As the radical right in Israel is demanding more control over daily lives, demanding the right to segregation (and I’m talking about segregating Ashkanazi Orthodox from “corrupted” Sephardic Orthodox), even demanding the right to determine who is a Jew, and who is legally married, while, in fact contributing little to both the Israeli economy and military, they are sinking the last refuge of Jews.

If young, aware, committed Israelis who actually BELIEVE in democracy would stand up in the streets like the Egyptians, they could crumble and topple those who aim to establish a Jewish Taliban. They could stop this insane, suicidal urge to constantly take from the Palestinians.

It would be the best thing for Jews, for the state of Israel, and probably be a very good thing for their neighbors, too.

Notice that Saudi Arabia is snarling at the Egyptian peaceful revolution in total terror.  It’s toppling the Mubarak dictatorship (which is the descendant of the Nassar dictatorship) but is not a religious revolution. It seems like the Muslim Brotherhood isn’t leading but is asking “Please, can we join you, too?”

If the current Israeli leadership hadn’t gone so far Right, and had any brains at all, they could see this revolution as a GOLDEN opportunity for the Middle East, including Israel.

We and the Israelis have encouraged the arab world to do two things in the last 60 years. First, keep the oil flowing to the west. Second, continue to be retards wollowing in your own shit.

Self determination and education have and will prove to be disasterous for both these policies. There are many sophisticated muslims just as there are many forward thinking christians. Both sides are begining to figure out that they must leave their troglodyte brothers behind.

The arabs are begining to realize that they are being used. Mix that with a little hunger, a lot of poverty, and some ambition, and the next 30 years could be very interesting.
