A New Nakba Is Coming? Netanyahu and the Greater Israel
The foundations of the greater Near East were laid in the Quincey Pact (1945) following the doctrine of the 1916 Sykes-Picot Franco-British Accords that favoured the regional division of power into zones of influence and supported by the US-Egypt-Saudi tripod. This doctrine consisted in the endemic survival in Egypt of pro-Western autocratic military governments, which ensured the survival of the State of Israel (1948) and provided the US Navy with privileged access to the Suez Canal, crucial shortcut for direct access to the Arab Emirates, Iraq and Afghanistan, remaining a firm bastion of US geopolitical interests. in the area, especially after the fall of the Shah of Persia in 1980.
The other pillar of the agreement was US privileged access of oil from Saudi Arabia in exchange for preserving its autocratic regime and promoting the spread of Wahhabism (doctrine founded by Mohamed Abdel Wahab in the mid-18th century with the aim of becoming an attractive vision of Islam and exportable to the rest of Arab countries), with which the Saudi theocracy became a regional power providing the US the key to energy control while serving as a retaining wall for socialist and pan-Arabist currents. Finally, after the Six Day War (1967), the geostrategic puzzle of the Middle East was completed with the establishment of autocratic and pro-Western regimes in the countries surrounding Israel (Libya, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Iran), with Palestinians confined to the ghettos of the West Bank and Gaza.
Netanyahu and the Greater Israel
Netanyahu reaffirmed “the right of the Jewish people to build in Jerusalem”, (which would be translated according to the television channel Arutz 2 in the construction of 1,400 new homes in Ramat Shlomo, Jewish quarter of East Jerusalem located beyond the so-called Green Line) even the Palestinians know that these places will be under Israeli sovereignty under any kind of arrangement.
Consequently, the Netanyahu Government aspires to resurrect the endemism of Greater Israel (Eretz Israel), an entity that would try to unite the antithetical concepts of the atavism of Greater Israel (Eretz Israel) and that would have as main champion Isaac Shamir defending that “Judea and Samaria (biblical terms of the present West Bank) are an integral part of the land of Israel.” They have not been captured and will not be returned to anyone, “a doctrine on which the current postulates of the Likud party led by Netanyahu would be based,” which aspires to make Jerusalem the “indivisible capital of the new Israel” after the invasion of its eastern part after the Six Day War (1967), a thesis reinforced by the announcement of the Trump Administration to move the American Embassy to Jerusalem, which marked the first milestone on the Greater Israel road map.
A New Nakba Plans on Palestine?
The former president of Egypt, Hosni Mubarak, (overthrown for his refusal to install American bases on Egyptian soil), revealed in an interview with the Egyptian newspaper El-Fagr the existence of the alleged plan to divide the entire Middle East region, consisting in the establishment of the aforementioned “constructive chaos” through the successive destruction of the autocratic regimes of Iraq, Libya, Sudan, Syria and Iran and reserving for Jordan the role of “new homeland of the Palestinian people”, for which the U.S. would use Takfiri groups.
Such a process of balkanization of the area would have its embodiment in countries such as Iraq (turned into a failed state and bled to death by Shiite, Sunni and Kurdish fronts), in the endemic Palestinian division between the Hamas and PLO factions; in the prevailing anarchy in Libya with Salafist Wahhabism established in Tripoli while takfiri groups (al-Qaeda satellites) tribal dominate the interior of Libya and in the application of Sunni jihad against the secular regime of al-Assad and its Shiite allies, Iran and Hezbollah that by mimetic effect would have already turned Lebanon into a country divided and ready to be fagocited by Israel, leaving the Shiite regime of the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei as the only area still impervious to the Balkanization strategy of Brzezinski.
However, after the approval of the US Congress and Senate of a statement prepared by Republican Senator Lindsey Graham and Democrat Robert Menéndez that states emphatically that “if Israel is forced to defend itself and take action (against Iran), USA will be at his side to support him militarily and diplomatically”, we will witness the increase of pressure from the pro-Israeli lobby of the U.S. ( AIPAC) to proceed with the destabilization of Iran by expedited methods.
This war will be a new local episode that would be framed in the return to the recurrent endemism of the US-Russia Cold War and will involve both superpowers having as necessary collaborations with regional powers (Israel, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Iran) encompassing the geographical space extending from the Mediterranean arc (Libya, Syria and Lebanon) to Yemen and Somalia and whose outcome could have as side effects the design of a new cartography favorable to the geopolitical interests of the US, Britain and Israel with the implementation of Great Israel (“Eretz Israel”).
This would entail the restoration of the Balfour Declaration (1917), which drew a State of Israel with a vast extension of about 46,000 square miles and extending from the Mediterranean east of the Euphrates to Syria, Lebanon, north-eastern Iraq , northern part of Saudi Arabia, the coastal strip of the Red Sea and the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt and Jordan, which would be renamed Palesjordán after being forced to host the entire Palestinian population of the current West Bank and Gaza forced into a massive diaspora (new nakba).
