      "Anti-semitism" as a political weapon - ISRAEL BLACKMAILS US

      Our friend Lasse Wilhelmson from Stockholm, Sweden tells of fear of
      antisemitism freezing pro-Palestinian activists in their tracks. He
      comes to a powerful conclusion: Zionism, through its Jewish
      organisations, is the dominant interpretation of Judaism today.



      Criticising Israel´s mistakes is acceptable. But questioning whether
      Israel is a Jewish state with a racist apartheid system that renders
      non-Jews second rate citizens – that is not acceptable. It makes
      little difference whether the criticism is based on facts. Few people
      who cannot claim Jewish descent would dare to criticize publicly. They
      are afraid of being accused of "anti-semitism".

      There is much talk of disarming countries with nuclear weapons. Not
      the US and its allies, but the so-called `rogue states', especially
      Iran, which doesn´t yet have any weapons. Israel is hardly ever
      mentioned as a nuclear power although it has been for a long time. In
      spite of its advanced plans to bomb Iran, Israel is not seen as a
      threat to the surrounding world. The media regularly criticizes
      severely various religions, especially Islam, but never Judaism.
      Catholic pressure through lobbying, or the Pope´s speeches on
      political issues are discussed and criticized. The fight in South
      Africa against the Boers involved a whole world. Not because they were
      a "race" with undesirable characteristics, but because they were the
      social group who in their own interests formed and administrated a
      racist apartheid system. The same sort of criticism was aimed at the
      followers of Cecil Rhodes in Rhodesia.

      All types of social, ethnic and religious groups defend their own
      special interests. It is considered quite legitimate for their
      spokesmen to do their best to promote these interests; just as it is
      quite legitimate to criticize the same. But the moment Jewish
      spokesmen and their organisations are criticised, the legitimacy
      vanishes into thin air. The mention of "Jewish power" makes most
      people´s blood run cold, but it is quite alright to discuss "gypsy
      power" or rather the lack of it. "Jewishness" has become taboo. This
      applies particularly to the combination of "Jewish" and of "power" .
      All kinds of power can be examined and discussed, questioned or
      rejected – but not the Jewish kind which is generally presented as
      non-existent. This denial is the hidden flip-side of the denial of
      concentration camps aimed at exterminating Jews and others during the
      second world war.

      Israel's 'Use' Of Its Nuclear Weapons Against US
      From Lili
      2-26-3

      These are paragraphs of 'special interest' I wish to highlight from
      the long and detailed USAF report that follows...my comments are in
      all caps:

      ISRAEL BLACKMAILS US
      One other purpose of Israeli nuclear weapons, not often stated, but
      obvious, is their "use" on the United States. America does not want
      Israel's nuclear profile raised.[144] They have been used in the past
      to ensure America does not desert Israel under increased Arab, or oil
      embargo, pressure and have forced the United States to support Israel
      diplomatically against the Soviet Union. Israel used their existence
      to guarantee a continuing supply of American conventional weapons, a
      policy likely to continue.[145]

      ISRAEL DICTATES TO US AND WE CONCEDE TO ISRAEL
      Israel went on full-scale nuclear alert again on the first day of
      Desert Storm, 18 January 1991. Seven SCUD missiles were fired against
      the cities of Tel Aviv and Haifa by Iraq (only two actually hit Tel
      Aviv and one hit Haifa). This alert lasted for the duration of the
      war, 43 days. Over the course of the war, Iraq launched around 40
      missiles in 17 separate attacks at Israel. There was little loss of
      life: two killed directly, 11 indirectly, with many structures damaged
      and life disrupted.[98] Several supposedly landed near Dimona, one of
      them a close miss.[99] Threats of retaliation by the Shamir government
      if the Iraqis used chemical warheads were interpreted to mean that
      Israel intended to launch a nuclear strike if gas attacks occurred.

      One Israeli commentator recommended that Israel should signal Iraq
      that "any Iraqi action against Israeli civilian populations, with or
      without gas, may leave Iraq without Baghdad."[100] Shortly before the
      end of the war the Israelis tested a "nuclear capable" missile which
      prompted the United States into intensifying its SCUD hunting in
      western Iraq to prevent any Israeli response.[101] The Israeli Air
      Force set up dummy SCUD sites in the Negev for pilots to practice
      on"they found it no easy task.[102] American government concessions to
      Israel for not attacking (in addition to Israeli Patriot missile
      batteries) were:

      * Allowing Israel to designate 100 targets inside Iraq for the
      coalition to destroy,
      * Satellite downlink to increase warning time on the SCUD attacks
      (present and future),
      * Technical parity with Saudi jet fighters in perpetuity.[103]
      JFK demanded Israel allow inspectors to see Dimona, three months later
      he was assassinated and pro-Israel Johnson is President:

      The Israelis aggressively pursued an aircraft delivery system from the
      United States. President Johnson was less emphatic about
      nonproliferation than President Kennedy-or perhaps had more pressing
      concerns, such as Vietnam. He had a long history of both Jewish
      friends and pressing political contributors coupled with some first
      hand experience of the Holocaust, having toured concentration camps at
      the end of World War II.[51] Israel pressed him hard for aircraft
      (A-4E Skyhawks initially and F-4E Phantoms later) and obtained
      agreement in 1966 under the condition that the aircraft would not be
      used to deliver nuclear weapons. The State Department attempted to
      link the aircraft purchases to continued inspection visits. President
      Johnson overruled the State Department concerning Dimona
      inspections.[52] Although denied at the time, America delivered the
      F-4Es, on September 5, 1969, with nuclear capable hardware intact.[53]

      JONATHAN POLLARD
      Not only were the Israelis interested in American nuclear weapons
      development data, they were interested in targeting data from U.S.
      intelligence. Israel discovered that they were on the Soviet target
      list. American-born Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard obtained
      satellite-imaging data of the Soviet Union, allowing Israel to target
      accurately Soviet cities. This showed Israel's intention to use its
      nuclear arsenal as a deterrent political lever, or retaliatory
      capability against the Soviet Union itself. Israel also used American
      satellite imagery to plan the 7 June 1981 attack on the Tammuz-1
      reactor at Osiraq, Iraq. This daring attack, carried out by eight
      F-16s accompanied by six F-15s punched a hole in the concrete reactor
      dome before the reactor began operation (and just days before an
      Israeli election). It delivered 15 delay-fused 2000 pound bombs deep
      into the reactor structure (the 16th bomb hit a nearby hall). The
      blasts shredded the reactor and blew out the dome foundations, causing
      it to collapse on the rubble. This was the world's first attack on a
      nuclear reactor.[91]
      (PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT RUSSIA WAS ABLE TO PURGE THE JEWISH
      BOLSHEVIK COMMUNISTS FROM THE KREMLIN STARTING IN THE LATE '30's UNDER
      STALIN, SUBSEQUENTLY THE JEWISH POWER WAS GIVEN TOP POSITIONS IN THE U.S.)

      VERY SCARY
      Another speculative area concerns Israeli nuclear security and
      possible misuse. What is the chain of decision and control of Israel's
      weapons? How susceptible are they to misuse or theft? With no open,
      frank, public debate on nuclear issues, there has accordingly been no
      debate or information on existing safeguards. This has led to
      accusations of "monolithic views and sinister intentions."[1360] Would
      a right wing military government decide to employ nuclear weapons
      recklessly? Ariel Sharon, an outspoken proponent of "Greater Israel"
      was quoted as saying, "Arabs may have the oil, but we have the
      matches."[137] Could the Gush Emunim, a right wing religious
      organization, or others, hijack a nuclear device to "liberate" the
      Temple Mount for the building of the third temple? Chances are small
      but could increase as radicals decry the peace process.[138] A 1997
      article reviewing the Israeli Defense Force repeatedly stressed the
      possibilities of, and the need to guard against, a religious, right
      wing military coup, especially as the proportion of religious in the
      military increases.[139 ]
