As Romney's Defeat Becomes Inevitable, Mad Netanyahu May Attack Iran (Bucket or pail suggested)
Al-Jazeerah ^ | September 24, 2012 | Alan Hart

What Might Netanyahu Do if Romney's Defeat Becomes Inevitable?

Alan Hart examines whether Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is mad enough to order an attack on Iran in what remains of Obama’s first term without the president’s blessing and American participation?

Even before his latest reported gaffe the polls were indicating that Mitt Romney will fail in his Zionist-backed bid to deny President Barack Obama a second term in the White House.

After the Republican presidential candidate tried and failed to make political capital out of the killing of the American ambassador and three of his colleagues in Libya, Obama said on CBS’s “60 Minutes” programme: “Governor Romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later.” Staying with the shooting metaphor, it seems to me that with his latest gaffe Romney has shot himself in both feet and possibly elsewhere in his anatomy.

Self-satisfied, inept and ignorant millionaire

Here is what he said to a behind-closed-doors meeting with Republican fundraisers:

“There are 47 per cent of the country who will vote for the president no matter what.” And this 47 per cent are people, he added, “who believe they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to take care of them, who believe they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it. It is not my job to worry about these people.” (We know that’s what Romney did say because he was secretly filmed saying it).

This was the same Romney whose campaign propaganda had previously proclaimed that he wanted “to help all Americans struggling in the Obama economy”.

In a New York Times opinion piece, David Brooks argues the case for saying that Romney is running a desperately inept presidential campaign... There’s no way the country will trust the Republican Party to reform the welfare state if that party doesn’t have a basic commitment to provide a safety net for those who suffer for no fault of their own... As a description of America today, Romney’s (47 per cent ) comment is a country-club fantasy. It’s what self-satisfied millionaires say to each other. It reinforces every negative view people have about Romney.

In his secretly recorded statement to Republican fundraisers Romney also said, according to the Associated Press, that “the Palestinians are committed to the destruction and elimination of Israel” and that the prospects for a two-state solution to Mideast peace are dim. “You hope for some degree of stability, but you recognize that this is going to remain an unsolved problem, and we kick the ball down the field and hope that ultimately, somehow, something will happen and resolve it.”

In what was said to be a “rambling response” to a question about the “Palestine problem” (it’s actually a Jewish problem), he also asserted that “The Palestinians have no interest whatsoever in establishing peace,” and “the pathway to peace is almost unthinkable to accomplish”.

And there was more nonsense where that came from. He was, he said, against applying any pressure on Israel to give up disputed territory for a two-state solution with the Palestinians. “The idea of pushing on the Israelis to give something up to get the Palestinians to act is the worst idea in the world.”

It’s because Romney is so ignorant about foreign policy matters that he is delighted to read from Zionism’s script. What a disaster for America and the world a President Romney would be!

So to my headline question: What might Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu do when his American sponsors tell him, possibly in the coming few days, that Romney isn’t going to win?

Netanyahu’s quandary

In my view the question is worth asking because Netanyahu already knows there is no way the America of a second-term Obama is going to become engaged in a war with Iran. Netanyahu may also know that though they are now on hold until after the American election, secret talks between the Obama administration through a third party and Iran have made significant progress. According to my source with access to these talks, the clear implication is that early in his second term Obama will bring the nuclear crisis with Iran to an end by politics and diplomacy.

A few weeks ago I would have answered my headline question by saying there was more than a 50-50 chance that if and when he was told that Romney was not going to win the race for the White House, Netanyahu would give the “Go” signal for an attack on Iran, in the belief that in order to best protect his election prospects Obama would be forced to commit American weapons and forces.

But in a few weeks things have changed a lot. Not only is Obama now well placed to secure a second term, if only by default on Romney’s part, there is also a growing realization in America that, on Netanyahu’s behalf, the Zionist lobby and its stooges in Congress have overplayed their hand in trying to influence the American election and push the US into war. (In my last post I quoted Time’s much respected Joe Klein describing this influence as “outrageous and disgusting ... as cynical as it is brazen”. I have no doubt that Klein was speaking for many Americans, and probably more than a few Republicans as well as most Democrats.)

Most significant of all are poll findings that most Americans do not want their country to go to war with Iran even if Israel starts it. Perhaps most remarkable of all was a poll by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. More than half of the respondents said that if Israel starts a war with Iran, the US should not leap to Israel’s defence.

So if and when he is told that Romney won’t be the next president, Netanyahu will have a problem. He could no longer be certain that he can cause Obama to go to war in what remains of his first term.

"Mad enough to nuke the entire ... Arab world"?

While I was thinking about what Netanyahu might actually do, I recalled a conversation I had with Ezer Weizman in early 1980 when he was the defence minister in Begin’s coalition government. What follows is a part of that conversation as set down in my book Zionism: The Real Enemy of the Jews, Volume 3 sub-titled “Conflict Without End?”, Chapter 12, “The Blood Oath”. Weizman was half an hour late for an appointment I had with him and I had been shown into his outer office to wait for him.

I heard the sound of heavy, weary footsteps coming up the stone stairs. When Ezer filled the frame of the doorway to the outer office of his inner sanctum it was obvious that he was not his usual energetic, breezy self. He had the look of a haunted man. He managed a smile and said “Shalom.” Then, without another word, he put an arm around my shoulder and walked me into his office. He closed the door, nodded me to a seat on the other side of his ministerial desk and flopped into his own chair. He pushed it back and plonked his feet on the desk. He was looking straight at me but through me, to something only visible in his imagination.

I let the silence run and then, eventually, I said: “Ezer, you’ve obviously got a major problem on your mind. Shall I make an appointment for another day?”

Eventually he spoke. On reflection I am sure he told me what he did only because I was there. He needed to tell somebody and it happened by chance to be me.

He said, slowly and with quiet emphasis:

“This lunchtime Sharon convened a secret meeting of some of our generals and other top military and security people. They signed a blood oath which commits them to fight to the death to prevent any government of Israel withdrawing from the West Bank.” Pause. “I know that’s what happened at the meeting because I’ve checked it out, and that’s why I am late.”

In the event of a government decision to withdraw, Ezer said, Sharon was pledged to set up headquarters on the West Bank, and those in Israel’s armed forces who were loyal to him would make common cause with the armed settlers who wanted to fight.

I told Ezer what Peres had said to me weeks previously – that Begin was creating the conditions for a Jewish civil war, knowing, as Peres had put it, that no Israeli prime minister would trigger it by agreeing to withdraw from the West Bank.

Ezer nodded and then asked me a question. Did I think Sharon would act in accordance with the blood oath he and others had signed?

I said: “What I think is of no consequence. I’m a visiting goy [gentile]. You’re Israel’s defence minister, what do you think?”

Ezer replied: “Of course, he would. He’s mad enough to nuke the entire f___ng Arab world!”

Question: Is Netanyahu mad enough to order an attack on Iran in what remains of Obama’s first term without the president’s blessing and American participation?

Who knows?

I love it when a so-called "journalist" uses a private conversation that no one else can verify one way or the other to make a point. That's usually called fiction writing.

I have a really bad feeling about things.

1) Maybe the Democrats plan massive fraud, and so they need to pump up the "conventional wisdom" so that Romney's loss is not seen as "odd".
2) Maybe they have internal polls that actually make them believe that Obama cannot lose.
3) Maybe they know full well that they will lose, and they want to convince a lot of people that any loss is a sure sign that the Republicans have somehow staged a coup and that Obama should hold on to the office no matter what.

This is going to get ugly.

Nuke Chicago. It's the only way to be sure.

Yeah, I see that as a possible, desperate strategy. But it seems like betting your life savings on a poker hand of 2-3--5-6 and hoping to draw a 4. It might happen, but it probably won't.

If the media keeps shouting that Romney's campaign is a disaster, and if Romney ends up winning by 10 points, aren't people going to start noticing that the media isn't in the news business any more? It's just a propaganda wing for the Dems. I would think that the media should be trying to cover their tracks right about now -- but instead, they seem to be going "all-in".

Not surprised at all that a reporter from Al-Jazeera would have a source who has access to these talks. Liars lying to each other so they can then lie to the American public.

I'm in Memphis...MEMPHIS...predominantly black. In the past 6 weeks I have seen two Purple Lipped Prince bumper stickers and, one yard sign in my neighborhood...Last election they were everywhere long before now.

I'm feeling pretty good regardless of polls, Al Jakass-zera, MSPMS, etc...

I still see no way Obama can win (short of massive fraud). The last election was the most overhyped election in history with the “historicness” of it. Even with the messianic campaign with zombies shambling the street uttering “hooope....chaaaange.....hooooope....chaaange”, with the media in full in tank mode, with small children singing “mmm mmmm mmmm”, even with the lamest republican candidate in history with even republicans in fatigue from 8 years of non-stop bush bashing in the news media, even after all that and much much much more, Obummer only got 52% of the vote. Does anybody really believe that after 4 straight years of unemployment, deficits, corruption, cronyism, middle east on fire, high gas prices, and all the rest, that at least 3% of the population will change their mind, and another percent just won’t vote because the “cool” is gone?

“Let not your heart be troubled”

If Al-Jacuzzi refers to Netanyahu as “mad”, the Islamofascists are betraying their own desperation over Obama losing in November.

First of all, Benjamin Netanyahu is the only adult in any room he happens to walk into. Especially the Oval Office. The muzzies hate & fear him beyond all measure.

Take counsel of your thoughts and don’t panic; make sensible preparations and remember that G-d assists those who are both faithful and prudent. Call upon His Name and He will hear you.

I don’t think any of these “commentators” have read the Bible. He is saying obama will bring peace to the Middle East. We all know where this is written.

Since Bibi has balls, why not do humanity a favor and turn that evil black rock the Satanists worship in Mecca into a nice sheet of glass ? Bush should’ve done that on 9/12/2001. To stop evil, you go to the source.

the polls have to lie like mad now ecause how are they going to explain that 10% of the obama vote suddenly came out.

I.E. if they had the real numbers out and say Romney was up by 10 then how could the media explain how on election night obama got another 10 points and won that state.
