A Strategy for Israel in the Nineteen Eighties

by Oded Yinon

Lebanon's total dissolution into five provinces serves as a precendent for the entire Arab world including Egypt, Syria, Iraq and the Arabian peninsula and is already following that track. The dissolution of Syria and Iraq later on into ethnically or religiously unqiue areas such as in Lebanon, is Israel's primary target on the Eastern front in the long run, while the dissolution of the military power of those states serves as the primary short term target.

Iraq, rich in oil on the one hand and internally torn on the other, is guaranteed as a candidate for Israel's targets. Its dissolution is even more important for us than that of Syria. Iraq is stronger than Syria. In the short run it is Iraqi power which constitutes the greatest threat to Israel. An Iraqi-Iranian war will tear Iraq apart and cause its downfall at home even before it is able to organize a struggle on a wide front against us. Every kind of inter-Arab confrontation will assist us in the short run and will shorten the way to the more important aim of breaking up Iraq into denominations as in Syria and in Lebanon. In Iraq, a division into provinces along ethnic/religious lines as in Syria during Ottoman times is possible. So, three (or more) states will exist around the three major cities: Basra, Baghdad and Mosul, and Shi'ite areas in the south will separate from the Sunni and Kurdish north. It is possible that the present Iranian-Iraqi confrontation will deepen this polarization.

It should be clear, under any future political situation or mifitary constellation, that the solution of the problem of the indigenous Arabs will come only when they recognize the existence of Israel in secure borders up to the Jordan river and beyond it, as our existential need ..

In the United States a very similar situation exists, at least until now. The more or less serious commentators take their information about Israel, and much of their opinions about it, from two sources. The first is from articles in the "liberal" American press, written almost totally by Jewish admirers of Israel who, even if they are critical of some aspects of the Israeli state, practice loyally what Stalin used to call "the constructive criticism." (In fact those among them who claim also to be "Anti-Stalinist" are in reality more Stalinist than Stalin, with Israel being their god which has not yet failed). In the framework of such critical worship it must be assumed that Israel has always "good intentions" and only "makes mistakes," and therefore such a plan would not be a matter for discussion--exactly as the Biblical genocides committed by Jews are not mentioned. The other source of information, The Jerusalem Post, has similar policies. So long, therefore, as the situation exists in which Israel is really a "closed society" to the rest of the world, because the world wants to close its eyes, the publication and even the beginning of the realization of such a plan is realistic and feasible.

A strategy, that 25 years later, is becoming a reality in Occupied Palestine and Occupied Iraq.

A strategy, developed and pushed by Israel, which has been bought hook, line and sinker by the gullible USA.

A strategy that will lead to wars and more wars, all for the sake of the deranged Zionists in Israel.

Wars waged against the indigenous peoples of the ME by the USA, fighting at the behest of Israel's Zionists.

Wars that will be portrayed by the American MSM as necessary to Israel's survival, in a never ending Zionist campaign of propaganda, disinformation and outright lies.

This is the the true face of the racist and apartheid state of Israel: A face that is permanently contorted into a mask of hate.


  1. "Divide and conquer" alive and well in all the zionists minds'.

  2. A plan 25 years in the making that is starting to come true.

    Except it's not happening fast enough for the Israeli War Pigs, so they tried to kick into high speed by having some of their bought and paid for stooges here in America introduce the Armenian Genocide Recognition Bill.

    Anytime a hard core Zionist like Rep. Tom Lantos of California, AKA "Mr. Holocaust" introduces a bill that might take away from the lucrative Holocaust Industry®, you know Israel is up to no good.

    Lantos' bill wasn't about recognizing the Armenian genocide, but an effort to ignite an even wider conflict in northern Iraq, in the hopes of splitting of that portion of Iraq into a separate entity.

    Of course, the fact that the Kurds have tons of oil probably didn't weigh on the Israeli Lobby's mind, right?

  3. Tbh Greg, i still haven't quite understood "why" they are bringing this Armenian Bill into the fray. What do they hope to achieve? No one alive had anything to do with it and there are genocides happening NOW which are FAR worse, so what are they up to?
