Israeli officials have already figured out that they lost the war in Syria. For the past seven years or so, they tried all kinds of deceptive means you could possibly imagine in order to create chaos in the region.
First, they concocted the silly idea that Assad was killing his own people. That obviously didn’t work precisely because Assad won the Syrian election by a landslide.
Then they summoned the idea that Assad relentlessly used chemical weapons on his own people. Thanks to Russia, independent journalists and even VT writers and editors who were investigating the so-called attack, we know by now that it was the rebels/terrorists who actually used chemical weapons. In fact, Assad would have been the dumbest political figure if he happened to use chemical weapons because he was winning the war.
Next, Neocon Daniel Pipes came on the political scene and preposterously declared that the United States had to support both the Syrian rebels/terrorists and the Assad government at the same time. Why? Well, both entities, according to Pipes, would lock themselves in a mortal combat, and they’d eventually kill each other. Pipes was very serious:
“The West should prevent either side in the civil war from emerging victorious by helping whichever side is losing, so as to prolong their conflict.’”
Pipes admitted: “This policy of recommendation of ‘helping whichever side is losing’ sounds odd, I admit, but it is strategic.” What he was really saying here is that he knew his plan was essentially diabolical, but he had to flesh it out because he didn’t want to abide by the moral universe.
Pipes’ plan failed as well. In short, all the covert operations which attempted to overthrow the Syrian government didn’t work. But Israeli officials are still resisting; they are still fighting against the political order. The Associated Press has recently reported:
“Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said on Thursday that Israel will not be bound by whatever agreements the international community may reach on Syria after its civil war.”
“As far as the state of Israel is concerned, with all respect and appreciation for all agreements and all understandings, they are not binding on us. What obligates us are solely the security interests of the State of Israel. All other understandings and agreements that are reached in all kinds of places are simply irrelevant from our point of view.”
Lieberman again puts the issue in proper perspective because he summarizes what we have been saying for years: Israel is not and has never been willing to follow international law. The regime wants to abide by a different law which is neither moral nor reasonable. The fundamental question is this: where does Israel get its legal law? Perhaps we need to summon Benjamin Netanyahu to answer this question. The Times of Israel reported back in 2014:
“As part of proposed legislation to enshrine Israel’s status as a Jewish state, the Israeli court system would be based on Talmudic law and the Jewish calendar would be formally adopted, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu allegedly told Yaakov Vider, a member of the Likud party’s ultra-Orthodox faction.
“Netanyahu said ‘we will legally define the Talmud as the basis of the Israeli legal system,’ Vider told the ultra-Orthodox Kikar HaShabat website on Wednesday night.”
There you have it. Unless the ideology in that book is challenge in the political landscape, America will continue to be subservient to the Israeli regime, particularly Benjamin Netanyahu. In fact, the mad man has already declared that he knows how to manipulate America.
“I know what America is,” Netanyahu said way back in 2011. “America is a thing you can move very easily, move it in the right direction.” Bibi has been doing exactly that for more than eight years.
