ROB LONAKER: LETTER FROM A SOLDIER’S PARENT TO ISRAEL
by Rob Lonaker
My son Jeff, a U.S. Army soldier, is sworn to defend Israel against all its enemies. At least that’s how his commanding officers and the guys in his squad figure it, because America and Israel have exactly the same interests. Our countries are like one. Perfect allies!
Plus, like his mother and me, his whole platoon is Christian and proud of it. He has his Bible study every day, so he knows how important Israel and the Jewish people are to God. His platoon wants to fulfill God’s plan, so they fight hard for you, Israel. They all love you. And to prove it, they’re dying for you.
Lately something’s been bothering Jeff, though. It seems a lot of Americans have found convincing evidence of explosives used to bring down the towers on 9/11. And it’s direct evidence, as the lawyers say: video, eyewitness, and chemical evidence.
Problem is, no one in the media or government will look at the evidence, even though most of it has come to light only since 2009. That’s weird, because 9/11 was a pretty important event. Jeff is constantly reminded by his captain that 9/11 is the main reason his squad is in Afghanistan, fighting and dying for you, Israel.
Here’s the strange part: Not one prominent Jewish person is asking for an investigation of this evidence.
We all know how much influence the Jews and Israel have over our politicians and the media. Don’t get me wrong – I mean, it’s great! The Israel Lobby makes sure every congressman and senator is being sensitive to even the smallest issue that affects Israel. You guys do a good job pressuring every last member of Congress to vote to fund each holocaust memorial service – and it seems likes there’s another one, somewhere, every couple weeks!
Best of all, you always make sure no one criticizes Israel. We all know that’s hate speech by definition! And your mechanisms for punishing politicians who slip up, by defunding their campaigns and trashing them in the press, or throwing them in jail like Jim Traficant, is nothing short of genius. Your organizational skills are amazing.
So Jeff can’t understand why Jewish leaders don’t want anyone to investigate the explosives found in the dust around Manhattan on 9/11.
Why are you silent, Israel?
Shouldn’t great Jewish men, like 9/11 Commission Director Philip Zelikow, former Homeland Security Director Michael Chertoff, and NIST 9/11 Investigation Leader John Gross, want to look at this evidence? Why aren’t they clamoring to find the truth? These guys were in positions of trust, so we Americans assumed they would never omit important evidence, much less refuse to talk about it now that they’re out of office.
Shouldn’t our Jewish neoconservative leaders be excited to investigate new and important evidence of explosives? After all, they helped us launch America’s righteous wars against Afghanistan and Iraq, and they now urge us to plunge deeper toward national bankruptcy and troop suicide by invading Iran with nukes. Where are men like Eliot Cohen, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, Douglas Feith, David Wurmser, Abraham Shulsky, Elliott Abrams, David Schenker, Michael Ledeen, and Michael Rubin, who helped bake Iraqi WMD intelligence, when you need them? I just don’t get it.
And what about the media? Come on, most mainstream media sources are heavily Jewish owned or influenced. Can’t they put a little pressure on politicians and the Justice Department to get an investigation going?
We all know that al-Qaeda did 9/11, because the media, president, and congress say so. I know, no one’s proved it yet, and the story is completely implausible, but – well, that’s beside the point. Heck, the media told us within ten minutes of the second plane hit that Osama bin Laden did it. That just proves how smart they are: the story never needed changing, even after the 9/11 Commission “investigated” it!
So why won’t Western media and governments now look into the explosives issue? I’m sure they’ll find that somehow, al-Qaeda helped destroy the twin towers using the explosive agent nanothermite, which scientists later discovered in the tower dust. And someone will surely explain how al-Qaeda got access to this high-grade explosive, produced only in a few countries’ classified military programs.
A few of Jeff’s buddies in Afghanistan tell him there’s only one logical explanation for why all the mainstream media and politicians won’t look at the new explosives evidence:
You did 9/11.
Jeff thinks that no other explanation fits all the facts. But the reality of this crushes him and makes him want to despair.
But he always gets a grip on himself. He fights back tears and tries to put it out of his mind. He will stay brave.
If I may be so bold, Israel, Jeff and I would like to ask, why?
Forgive me for saying so, but I really don’t think you needed to go that far. Jeff would still have fought and died for you, as I’m sure President Bush would have ordered him to, even without 9/11. I’ll bet the fake WMD evidence the neocons ginned up would have been enough to garner public support for the wars you wanted. I guess what I’m saying is, our soldiers could have been mobilized into your service, Israel, with just a little false flag prevarication. You didn’t need to go all the way and kill 3,000 of us. Jeff even has a friend whose mom died in the towers. Again pardon me for being brash enough to say this: that wasn’t cool.
But hey, I’m sorry. Jeff and I will get over it. I talked it over with his mother, and I think maybe one day, she’ll get past it, too. She’s pretty emotional, though, so it may take a while.
Jeff’s whole squad still supports you, Israel! They’re Christians, after all, and they must remain faithful to God’s Anointed People. If you had to kill some of us Americans to show us the way, then I suppose that God’s ways, which are your ways, are perhaps just beyond our lowly human understanding.
Who knows? Maybe losing 3,000 innocent citizens was a small price for us to pay in your bigger scheme of things.
May God give Jeff the faith to keep fighting for you, Israel, and to be willing to lose life and limb for you, even though he may not comprehend everything. Like God smote Job to test his faith, I think that’s what Israel must be doing to America. And like Abraham, I’m willing to sacrifice my son if you say it’s God’s will.
Jeff will go forward for you, no matter the cost you impose. Isn’t that what blind faith is all about?
