Obama at the UN General Assembly
Five Years a Zionist Lackey, Fifteen Minutes an American President
by James Petras
Obama’s rhetorical exercise in ‘peace talk’ at the United Nations General Assembly
impressed few delegations and even fewer Americans: Far more eloquent are his
five years of wars, military interventions, cyber-spying, drone murders,
military coups and the merciless prosecution of patriotic truth tellers. If his
‘peace message’ fell flat, the explicit affirmations of imperial prerogatives,
threats of military interventions and over two dozen (25) references to Israel
as a ‘strategic ally’, confirmed the suspicions and fears that Obama was
preparing for even more deadly wars.

Playing the ‘War Card’ in the Face of Massive Opposition
Obama’s UN speech took place at a time when his war policies have
hit rock bottom both at home and abroad . After suffering at least two major diplomatic defeats and a
string of negative polls, which revealed that a strong majority of Americans
rejected his entire approach to foreign policy, Obama made an overture to Iran.
Up to that point few delegates or citizens were impressed or entertained by his
‘new vision for US diplomacy’. According to many experts, it was vintage Obama,
the con-man: talking peace while preparing new wars.
Nothing in the past six years warranted any hope that Obama would
respond to new overtures for peace emanating from Iran, Syria or Palestine; his
habitual obedience to Israel would push for new wars on behalf of the Jewish
State. At no point did Obama even acknowledge the sharp and outraged criticism
by leading heads of state regarding his policy of cyber colonialism (massive
spying) and his pursuit of imperial wars.
Obama’s Double Discourse: Talking Peace While Making War
At his 2009 inauguration, Barak Obama proclaimed, “We are going to
have to take a new approach with a new emphasis on respect and a new willingness
to talk.” And then he proceeded to launch more wars, armed interventions,
clandestine operations and assassination campaigns in more countries than any US
President in the last fifty years.
Obama’s record over the past five years reads:
(1) Continued war, slaughter and military bases in Iraq.
(2) A 40,000 plus US “troop surge” in Afghanistan
(3) An unprovoked assault against Libya, devastating the country,
reducing oil production by 90%, throwing millions into chaos and poverty. and
allowing a multitude of terrorist groups to divide the country and distribute
its huge arsenal of weapons.
(4) Over 400 un-manned aerial drone attacks, murdering over 4,000
civilians in Pakistan, Yemen, Afghanistan and Somalia.
(5) Cross-border ground and air attacks in Pakistan and
counter-insurgency warfare that forcing over 1.5 million refugees to flee the
(6) The arming and financing of‘African Union’ mercenaries to
invade and occupy Somalia, sending hundreds of thousands of Somalis into refugee
(7) Unconditional support for Israel, including the ‘sale’ of
advanced weapons and an annual $3 billion dollars ‘aid’package to a racist
regime intent on more land grabs in the occupied West Bank and East Jerusalem,
as well as the displacing, killing, arresting and torturing of thousands of
Palestinians and Bedouins.
(8) The sending of the US Naval armada to the Persian Gulf while
imposing even more brutal economic sanctions drafted by Israeli-Firsters in
order to strangle the Iranian economy and starve its over 70 million citizens
(9) Maintaining the notorious Guantanamo torture camp where
hundreds of prisoners languish without trail (despite early promises to close it).
(10) Arming and training Islamist terrorists and ‘pro-Western’
mercenaries to invade Syria, killing over 100,000 Syrians and driving over one
million refugees from their homes. Obama’s plans to bomb Syria are on hold, as
of October 2013, thanks to Russian President Putin’s peace initiative.
(11) Engaging in grotesque global cyber-spying and the massive
theft of highly confidential military, economic and political communications
within allied nations (from Germany to Brazil) at the highest
(12) Unleashing a violent destabilization campaign in democratic
Venezuela, following the defeat of the US candidate; Obama was the only leader
in the world to refuse to recognize the election.
Altogether, Obama’s five years in office have been marked by his
relentless pursuit of imperial power through arms and domination; This has come
at enormous economic cost to the American people in the form of huge fiscal
deficits and significant overseas and domestic political losses.
As a result, Obama’s rising tide of militarism has had the opposite
effect of provoking a countercurrent of peace initiatives to challenge the
assumptions and prerogatives of the war-mongers in the White House. The dynamics
of this immense clash between the global war and peace forces will be played out
in the next several months.
The Dynamics of Obama’s Foreign Policy
Obama’s future policy reflects the interplay between a highly
militarized past and the tremendous current pressure for peace and diplomacy.
The changes emerging from these powerful conflicting forces will have a decisive
impact on the global configuration of power, as well as on the trajectory of the
US economy for the foreseeable future.
We have proceeded by outlining in telegraphic form the principle
events and policies defining Obama’s embrace of a militarist policy over the
past five years. We will now proceed to highlight the current countervailing
forces and events pressuring the White House to adopt a diplomatic and peaceful
resolution of conflicts. We will identify the leading pro-war power
configuration acting as an obstacle to peace. In the final section we will spell
out the policy resulting from these conflicting forces.
The Dynamics of Peace against the Legacy of War
By the early fall 2013, powerful tendencies emerged which seemed to
undermine or, at least, neutralize Washington’s drive to new and more deadly
wars. Eight major events constrained Washington’s empire builders to temporarily
rethink their immediate steps to war.
These include: (1) President Vladimir Putin’s proposal for Syria to
destroy its chemical weapons, under UN supervision, denying the US its current
pretext for bombing Damascus. The subsequent UN Security Council resolution,
which was unanimously approved, did not contain the ‘war clause’ (Chapter 7) -
thereby removing Washington’s pretext to bomb Syria for ‘non-compliance’ to the
tight time-table for disarming its chemical arsenal.
(2) Iran’s President Rohani’s calls for peace and reconciliation,
his offer to start prompt and consequential negotiations regarding Iran’s
nuclear program has isolated Israel and its Zionist agents in the international
arena and forced Obama to reciprocate, resulting in a move toward US-Iranian
(3) Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff’s, powerful denunciation of
US cyber spying against her government, economy and citizens before the General
Assembly resonated with the vast majority of political leaders. Coming from the
most powerful economy in Latin America, the sixth largest economy in the world
and a leading member of the BRICs, Rousseff’s rejection of US cyber-colonialism
and its IT and telecommunication corporations and her call for national
development, control and ownership of these communication networks, set a clear
anti-colonial tone to the proceedings. Washington’s response, its affirmation of
its ‘right’ to spy on allies and their private citizens, as well as foes, has
isolated Washington and found few supporters for such global cyber-imperial
pretensions. To accommodate Brazil, Washington will be forced to enter into
negotiations and acknowledge (if not comply with) Brazil’s demands.
(4) US domestic public opinion, in the run-up to Putin’s diplomatic
solution of the Syrian crisis, was overwhelmingly opposed to Obama’s moves to
bomb Syria. By a margin of two to one, the American electorate opposed any new
war; and Congress was prepared to heed its constituents, as letters were running
nine to one against war. In other words, Obama lacked domestic support for
attacking Syria and was under strong pressure to accept Putin’s diplomatic
solution. The mass involvement of American citizens, at least temporarily,
pushed back the war-mongers among Israel’s wealthy and influential backers in
(5) Obama’s militarist foreign policy faces pressure from the
Congressional deadlock over the budget and debt ceilings. Lacking a federal
budget and with government offices closing, the White House has been forced to
lay-off millions of military and civilian employees. Obama is not in a position
to launch a costly new war, even if his Zionist patrons are “storming” Congress
and clambering for one. The ‘fiscal crisis of the state’, which exploded in
September 2013, is turning into a powerful political antidote to the policy of
serial wars Obama undertook during his first five years in office. The
debt-ceiling crisis and its aftermath further weaken the White House’s capacity
and willingness to pursue an extended war agenda in the Middle East. Congress’s
refusal to raise the debt ceiling, without budget reductions, could foreshadow a
crisis in financial markets spreading to the world economy and leading to
profound recession. The White House has its hands full trying to stabilize the
domestic economy and placate Wall Street, thus weakening its willingness to
engage in a new war.
One caveat: It is possible that, facing political divisions and an
economic crisis, political adventurers and pro-Israel advisers might convince
Obama to launch a war to ‘unify the country’and ‘divert attention’ from his
domestic debacle. A military distraction, of course, could backfire; it could be
seen as a partisan ploy and deepen domestic divisions, especially if a US attack
on Iran or Syria led to a wider war.
(6) The Snowden revelations of the National Security Agency’s (NSA)
global spying have weakened the White House’s ties to its allies and heightened
antagonism with its adversaries. Trust and co-operation, especially with regard
to intelligence, have been weakened in Asia, Latin America and, to a lesser
degree, in Europe. Several countries are discontinuing the use of US-IT
companies which had collaborated with the NSA. By losing access to the
communications of top officials in targeted countries, these revelations may
have undermined Washington’s global reach. Obama and Kerry’s outrageous
justifications for spying on their allies and private citizens and their defense
of intervention in cyber space have stirred up powerful political currents of
anti-imperialism among major trade partners. At the UN General Assembly Bolivian
President Evo Morales asserted, ‘The US is mistaken if it thinks it is the owner
of the world’. His attack on US military imperialism, “…terrorism is combatted
through social policy not with military bases”… resonated among the vast
majority of UN delegates. In stark contrast, Prime Minister Netanyahu’s
bellicose speech received a hostile reception among those heads of state who
didn’t simply walk out in disgust.
The Snowden disclosures of cyber-imperialism has seriously weakened
the US capacity for war by exposing its intelligence operations and discrediting
the war mongers associated with the NSA, making war planning more difficult.
The domestic and foreign forces, as well as world conditions for
peace, would be overwhelming in any normal imperial system. But there is a
‘special factor’, a powerful ‘undertow’, which opposes the forces for peace,
i.e. Israel and its US-based billionaire funded, 300,000 member-strong national
and local Zionist Power Configuration (ZPC) deeply embedded in government and
Against the Winds of Peace: The Zionist Power Configuration
On September 29, 2013, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu landed in
New York, as part of an Israeli campaign to undermine world-wide support for a
peaceful resolution of the war against Syria and the US-Iranian conflict. On
September 30, Netayanhu met with President Obama and addressed the United
Nations General Assembly the next day. Israel and Netanyahu represent the
biggest and most powerful obstacle to the growing“tide of peace”. Given its
status as a pariah state and the global community’s negative view of Israel and
its bullying Prime Minister, Netanyahu has to rely almost exclusively on the US
to maintain its monopoly of nuclear weapons in the region, its vast stockpile of
chemical weapons and its military supremacy in the Middle East. The White House
and the US Congress are crucial institutions backing Israel’s ambition for
uncontested hegemony in the Middle East. And the Zionist Power Configuration is
decisive in setting US policy throughout the region.
The ZPC operates on several levels: (1) dozens of Zionist
billionaires and millionaires fund Washington-based propaganda mills (so-called
‘think tanks’), an army of pro-Israel Middle East‘experts’ and Ivy League
publicists, the 52 major American Zionist organizations and their 300,00 zealous
militants. They pour tens of millions of dollars into electoral campaigns
throughout the country, rewarding compliant politicians who support any
legislation or resolution submitted by Zionist politicos and lobbyists (while
brutally punishing any congressional‘dissenters)’.
(2) Dozens of Zionist zealots occupy key positions within the
Administration, especially as appointees dealing with the Middle East and
Treasury, ensuring that US policymakers impose economic sanctions on Israel’s
enemies and pursue wars in Israel’s interests. They unconditionally back Israel
in of its attacks on its neighbors and block any sanctioning vote in the UN.
They make sure that Israel receives the most advanced weapons and the US
Treasury pays its annual $3 billion-plus dollar tribute to the Jewish State.
(3) The Presidents of the 52 Major American Jewish Organizations
and their militants ensure local and national support for Israel, even at the
expense of domestic US interests and priorities. The zealots actively intervene
to ban, censor or threaten the employment of any critic of Israel or the ZPC –
extending to the most mundane local level of harassment. They successfully limit
the content and participants in the mass media, world affairs forums and
university programs with their threats and bullying.
The mass media are controlled by pro-Israel moguls, news reporters
and commentators who mold public perception of Israel claiming it to be a
‘bastion of democracy’ while labelling Iran a“terrorist Islamist dictatorship”.
Media analyst Steve Lendman describes, in his article entitled, “Israel Launches
Anti-Rohani Media Blitz”, Netanyahu’s repeated lies on questions pertaining to
Iran’s nuclear program and how the major US news media parrot Israel’s bellicose
propaganda. The New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal and
Bloomberg back Netanyahu’s demand for harsh economic sanctions and threats of
aggression against Iran. The Daily Alert , mouthpiece of the 52 Presidents of
the Major American Jewish Organization, reproduces and circulates scores of
libelous polemical diatribes denigrating President Rohani, and slavishly praise
each and every bellicose eruption out from the mouths of Israeli politicians and
generals. For example, leading Zionist propagandist, Jeffrey Goldberg calls
President Rohani a“dishonest war monger” dismissing his peace overtures because
he is not “ready to shut down his country’s nuclear program”. Aaron David
Miller, another one of Israel’s Washington intellectuals, echoes Netanyahu’s
“concerns about wily Iranian mullahs bearing gifts” while demanding that the US
government “take care of Israel’s concerns”. The Zionist demand that the US
“secure Israel’s concerns” is a no brainer because the Jewish state is
determined to strip Iran of its sovereignty, surrender its entire medical and
civilian nuclear program and submit to Israeli regional hegemony...
The US and British press reported that the American Israel Public
Affairs Committee (AIPAC) has launched their own ‘full- scale invasion’ of the
US Congress, sending over 300 full-time lobbyists to sabotage any form of
rapprochement between the US and Iran. Just prior to the UN General Assembly
meeting, AIPAC militants were writing legislation for the US Congress, which
imposed new additional sanctions to further undermine Iranian oil exports; their
efforts secured “bi-partisan”support of over 300 members of Congress. While
President Obama faces a divided Congress, the Israel-Firsters from AIPAC easily
secure a near unanimous vote to scupper any diplomatic dialog between Washington
and Teheran. These new extremist sanctions were dictated by the Israeli Foreign
Office and are designed to sabotage any White House negotiations.
While some mainstream newspapers, like the Financial Times,
describe the “suspicions in Congress which raise the bar for a deal”, they fail
to mention the extraordinary intervention and influence of AIPAC in sowing these
“suspicions” – and authoring all anti-Iran legislation over the past two years!
The mass media covers up the central role of the ZPC in opposing a US dialogue
with Iran, and in subverting the push for peace favored by the vast majority of
war-weary and economically-battered Americans. Even ‘progressive and leftist’
weeklies, monthlies and quarterlies are silent on the overwhelming role of the
ZPC. Leading left journalists systematically skirt around any in- depth
discussion of the AIPAC and the 52 pro-Israel Jewish organizations in
manipulating the US Congress, the mass media and the Executive branch.
Any writer who attends US legislative committee hearings on the
Middle East or observes Congressional debates, or interviews Congressional
staff-members and lobbyists, or reads AIPAC reports, can compile ample public
documentation of the major role that Israel, through it US Zionist organizations
and agents, plays in dictating US-Iran relations. Nothing illustrates the
extreme power the ZPC exercises over US policy toward Iran than the thundering
silence of ‘progressives’ over the central ZPC role in policymaking. Is it
simply cowardice or fear of being slandered as an‘anti-Semite’? Or is it fear of
being excluded or blacklisted by major media and publications? Or is it
complicity: Being ‘critical of privileges and power’while selectively excluding
mention of Zionist access and influence?
So we have the situation in the US today where the Israeli Prime
Minister Netanyahu dictates the ‘negotiating terms’ to the Presidents of the 52
Major American Jewish Organizations. According to Netanyahu’s dictates, the
Islamic Republic of Iran must stop all uranium enrichment – including that for
medical, research and energy use, close the enrichment facilities at Qom, remove
all enriched uranium and halt the production of plutonium. Having set these
ridiculous, sovereignty-killing conditions on Iran and having the unconditional
support of the entire ZPC, Netanyahu proceeds to sabotage the peaceful,
diplomatic process via the lap-puppies in the US Congress. As one Washington
pundit noted the Obama regime“is very conscious of the fact that Israeli views
on Iran have a large influence (sic) on opinion in the US Congress”.
No country on any continent would or could accept the terms
dictated by Israel and its Fifth Column in the US –terms that undermine national
sovereignty. In fact, all countries with nuclear power facilities and advanced
medical and research institutions engage in some or all of these activities. By
setting these extremist terms, Netanyahu is in effect dooming the negotiations
from the start and setting the stage for war, the so-called “military option”
that both he and Obama agree would follow from a collapse in negotiations.
In a rational democratic world, most experts would argue that the
new alignment of forces for peace, including the vast and growing domestic
opposition to new wars and world public opinion in favor of President Rohani’s
overtures for negotiations, the US could easily ignore Israel’s war mongering.
But a more realistic and reflective analysis, however, would argue that the
negotiations will only proceed with great difficulty, especially in the face of
ZPC sabotage in adding new sanctions rather than a good-faith act of cutting or
reducing the current sanctions.
The Israeli-ZPC ‘war offensive’ went into high gear precisely at
the moment when world public opinion, the UN and even the White House
enthusiastically welcomed the peace overtures from newly elected Iranian
The purpose was to sabotage any dialogue with Iran before they even
began. The ZPC took the following measures:
1. AIPAC and its clients in the US Congress have circulated new
harsh sanctions and rapidly signed up dozens of Congressional supporters. The
entire Zionist apparatus, led by the ‘52 Presidents of the Major Jewish American
Organizations’, backed the latest and most severe sanctions against the Iranian
oil industry. They followed Netanyahu’s dictate to make the Iranian economy
collapse. The purpose of the ZPC is to create the worst possible conditions for
negotiations – undermining the ‘goodwill’ following Obama’s gestures (the phone
conversation with Rohani) and sure to provoke widespread opposition among the
sanction-weary Iranian population against a US-Iran dialogue.
2. The notorious Israeli spy outfit, Mossad, was most probably
involved in the brutal assassination of Iran’s official in charge of
cyber-defense, Mojtaba Ahmadi. Most experts agree that, since 2007, Israel’s
intelligence agency has been behind the horrific assassinations of five Iranian
nuclear engineers and scientists, as well as the head of their ballistic missile
program. The timing of the current Mossad outrage is designed to further poison
the climate for US-Iranian negotiations, even though the victim this time is not
directly linked to Iran’s nuclear program.
3. Netanyahu’s speech to the General Assembly was pure corrosive
vitriol, character assassination and fabrication. He made constant reference to
Iran’s ‘nuclear weapons program’, although on-site reports from the
International Atomic Energy Agency and sixteen US intelligence agencies have
repeatedly shown that no such program exists. Nevertheless, thanks to the power
and influence of the ZPC, Netanyahu’s venomous message was relayed by all the
major media and picked up and repeated by influential pro-Israel think tanks,
academics and pundits. Netanyahu unleashed the Zionist pro-war propaganda
machine to energize Jewish powerbrokers to ‘put the squeeze’on the White House.
The effect was immediate: Obama rushed out to parrot Netanyahu’s lies that Iran
had a nuclear weapons program. Secretary of State Kerry obediently pledged to
keep ‘the military option’ for dealing with Iran‘on the table’ – in other words,
the threat of a unilateral attack. UN Ambassador Samantha Power demanded the
newly elected President Rohani make immediate concessions in order to prove his
Conclusion: World Peace or Zionist War ?
Recent political and diplomatic changes provide the world community
with a measure of optimism regarding the prospects for peace. Under intense
pressure from US public opinion, Obama temporarily went along with Russian
President Putin’s diplomatic approach over chemical weapons in Syria.
The UN General Assembly’s favorable response to Iranian President
Rohani’s call for dialogue has compelled Obama to openly consider direct
negotiations with Teheran over its nuclear program.
World public opinion, favorable interlocutors in Iran, bold
diplomatic initiatives from Russia, and cooperative behavior from Damascus, all
events pointing to a peaceful resolution of current Middle East conflicts, face
a formidable enemy embedded in the very centers of power in the United States,
the ZPC, which acts on behalf of the ultra-militarist Israeli state.
Over the years, the ZPC has successfully pushed for crippling
sanctions and wars against a number of Israel’s regional opponents. Leading
Zionists in the Bush regime fabricated the myth of Saddam Hussein’s ‘weapons of
mass destruction’ leading the US to invade, occupy and destroy Iraq, despite
massive opposition from the US public on the eve of the invasion. Zionists in US
Treasury and in the White House slapped broad economic sanctions on Iraq, Iran
and Syria - preventing the biggest US oil companies from investing and trading
with these resource-rich nations, which cost ‘Big Oil’ close to $500 billion in
lost revenues. An empirical study of congressional committees, legislative
debates, resolutions and voting behavior demonstrates that the ZPC co-authored
the sanction legislation and administrators, linked to the ZPC, implemented the
The popular notion that ‘Big Oil’ was responsible for these wars
and sanctions, as part of some scheme to take over the oil production facilities
of Iraq and Iran, lacks empirical basis. The ZPC defeated ‘Big Oil’: Exon, Mobil
and Chevron were no match for the ZPC when it came to penetrating Congress,
authoring legislation, mobilizing billionaires to fund Congressional campaigns,
organizing thousands of zealous militants or influencing the mass media -
including the Wall Street Journal. The governments of billions of poor people in
Africa, Asia and Latin America can only dream of the annual $3 billion dollar
tribute that the ZPC secures for Israel from the American tax-payers for the
past 30-plus years.
The UN Security Council and its Human Rights Commission are
powerless to sanction Israel for its war crimes because the ZPC guarantees a US
veto of any resolution. Despite the opposition of the entire Muslim world, the
ZPC ensures that Washington will continue to support Israel’s colonial expansion
and land grabs in the occupied Palestinian territory, and its bombing of Gaza,
Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Sudan. In other words, the ZPC has successfully
undermined the interests of the biggest US multi-national corporations, the
position of the UN Security Council and the needs of billions of poor in the
Third World. The ZPC induces the US to start prolonged brutal wars costing the
US economy over a trillion dollars and totally destroying six sovereign
countries (Iraq, Libya, Syria, Afghanistan, Yemen and Somalia). Today Israel and
the ZPC set the terms for US-Iran negotiations - dooming them to failure. The
mass media echo Netanyahu’s scurrilous (and infantile) characterization of
President Rohani as‘untrustworthy’, and a ‘wolf in sheep’s clothing’. And US
Secretary of State John Kerry parrots Netanyahu’s lies about Iran’s nuclear arms
program. Shortly after his talk with Rohani, US President Obama dutifully made
his report of the entire conversation to Netanyahu – seeking Israel’s approval.
Obama then met with his Israeli ‘handlers’ and pledged fealty to the interests
of Israel, bleating out that ‘military option (to attack Iran) is still on the
table’. For the one hundred and ninety-first time (over the past year) President
Obama pledged the US’ unconditional support to defend Israel. Like a broken
record (or broken political hack), Obama repeated that “Israel must (sic)
reserve the right to take military action against Iran it if feels threatened by
The Zionist propaganda apparatus has set the terms for the US
government with regard to Iran. Tel Aviv orders and the ZPC demands that Obama
‘negotiate’ under Israeli terms. Iran, the ZPC insists, must provide detailed
information on its military bases and defenses, end its legal enrichment of
uranium for civilian use, turn over its existing stockpiles, end the production
of plutonium at the Arak facility, dismantle the underground research facilities
at Fordow and cease the conversion of first generation centrifuges to more
efficient second generation ones.
President Obama might then permit the Iranians to enrich uranium to
about 3.5 percent, operate a few primitive centrifuges and maintain a tiny stock
of enriched uranium – for medical purposes…. These are condition which Israel
and the ZPC know that no free and independent country or national leader would
ever accept. The Zionists seek to sabotage diplomacy in order to push the US
into another Gulf war which they believe will establish Israel as the
un-challenged regional hegemon.
It is essential for the peace camp in the United States to expose
the role of the ZPC in dictating the US negotiating terms with Iran and publicly
repudiate its control over the US Congress and the White House. Otherwise the
majority of Americans who favor peace and diplomacy will have no influence in
shaping US-Iran relations. The problem is that the majority of anti-war
Americans and the international community cannot match the billionaire Jewish
Zionists in buying and controlling the members of the US Congress. AIPAC has no
rival among Christians, Muslims or even anti-Zionist Jews. The pro- peace Pope
Francis from his pulpit in the Vatican cannot match the power of the Presidents
of the 52 Major Jewish American Organizations whose militants can literally
“storm Washington” and push the US into war!
Until the 99% of non-Zionist Americans (off all ethnicities and
persuasions) organize as a coherent force to push back the tiny 1% - Israel’s
Fifth Column - all the hopes for peace wakened by President Putin initiative on
Syria and President Rohani’s diplomatic opening at the United Nation, will
collapse. Worse, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu will again lead an American
President, Obama, by the nose, from sabotaged diplomacy into another costly Gulf
War, one in which thousands of US soldiers (not a single Zionist among them) and
tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of Iranians will perish!
