Held hostage by oil spill, or by Israeli spell
by Dr. Ashraf Ezzat
It’s the things we don’t see that worry me the most.
In his song “too much rope “, Roger Waters, the Rock musician of the Pink Floyd goes something like this; Moslem or Christian Mullah or Pope Preacher or poet who was it wrote Give any one species too much rope and they’ll mess it up. Yes… give British petroleum too much free hand in the Gulf of Mexico, and the USA will wake up one morning to the worst environmental disasters ever.
Give Israel the unconditional support and vetoed protection, and the USA will wake up another morning to find herself lost in Iraq and Afghanistan…And maybe soon in Iran or Pakistan.
The live streaming pictures of oil gushing from the sea floor with the potential to devastate the ecosystems of the Gulf of Mexico from the marshes and beaches to the deep sea ecosystems, is so terrifying to the extent that led The American government’s point man on the Gulf oil spill to call it “an insidious enemy that’s attacking our shores” and “holding the Gulf hostage.”
But we can easily speak of another insidious enemy that holds the whole USA hostage to his endless selfish demands, that is Israel.
The tangible vs the intangible
The Gulf oil leak crisis grabbed the attention of all Americans, because it`s a tangible threat, obvious and clear danger, no eye can see it differently, one look at a suffocated bird washed ashore would make you contemplate the hideous perils that lie ahead, if this spill is not promptly contained.
The Israeli threat to America is something of a greater magnitude and harm, the Zionist danger is the one we should refer to as genuinely insidious, it`s not as obvious and clear to the eyes as the oil leak, but it’s tenfold as catastrophic, it is the perfectly intangible danger.
You can’t watch it gushing out live on TV, but with attentive scrutiny you can recognize its perilous consequences;
– Israel is the main reason why most Muslim and Middle Eastern countries are engaged in anti – American sentiment.
– Israel is the main reason why Americans are entangled and fighting somebody else`s unjust and false wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and any time soon in Iran or Pakistan. Israel is the main reason why the flag of the USA is constantly humiliated abroad.
The origin of the tumor
Many have characterized the relationship between what the United States does in the Middle East and what the Zionist lobby wants it to do as a case of an Israeli malignant tumor spreading slowly in the US body, the tumor cells of this malignancy or better known as AIPAC , is seen as virtually dictating policy to whatever administration and Congress are in power, and its critics have stated it acts as an agent of the Israeli government with a “stranglehold” on the US Congress.
There are myriad examples of this dynamic, most notably Israel’s invasion of Lebanon 2006, the brutal offensive against Gaza 2008-2009 and lately the assassination of the freedom flotilla activists in international waters in the dead of night.
Israel has lately been under pressure to allow an independent inquiry into its assault on the Gaza aid flotilla after autopsy results on the bodies of those killed, obtained by the Guardian, revealed they were peppered with 9mm bullets, many fired at close range, in what apparently seems that Israel had operated a “shoot to kill policy”.
But is America willing to allow such an inquiry to proceed, this is the main question, the question that point out how Israeli policies adversely affect America’s strategic interests in the region and the whole world now. “I want BP to be very clear, they’ve got moral and legal obligations here in the Gulf for the damage that has been done,” Obama said.The Gulf oil spill weighing down wild life
“We’ve assigned federal folks to look over BP’s shoulder” to make sure they honor those obligations, the president said. But then, can the president of the United States be equally firm and decisive when addressing any Israeli problematic issue.
Nobody is expecting that the Israeli regime would come to terms with the pressures imposed by the international community, and submit to an international inquiry of the criminally suspected conduct of the Israeli commandos on the Gaza aid flotilla deck.
But then, why abide by the international law, when you safely keep the American veto in your pocket. Why not act criminally, when you can escape the back fire, slipping through the American backdoor.
Preventive measures should be applied
“I’m not too worried about oil on the surface,” says chemist Ed Overton of Louisiana State University in comment to the gulf oil spill and added “It’s going to cause very substantial and noticeable damage—marsh loss and coastal erosion and impact on fisheries, dead birds, dead turtles—but we’ll know what that is. It’s the things we don’t see that worry me the most.
That is exactly what the Americans should be worried about, the undersurface, hardly detected, constantly ongoing intangible Zionist cancer that enlarges and spreads throughout the American political system. If the United States is unable to distinguish the world’s or its own real needs from those of another state and that state’s lobby, then it simply cannot say that it always acts in its own best interests.
In medical terms, the only curative approach to a malignancy is the early detection as a preventive measure. Thus isn’t it about time the Americans sought prevention!
