Sultan Knish: Obama’s Plan to Destroy Israel

It’s a simple plan, really. Just takes a bit of Machiavellian thinking, and lots of loyal back-up from powerful anti-Semites like George Soros, and voila! Israel ceases to be a problem. Or rather, Israel ceases to be.

Sultan Knish lays out the strategies, tactics, and people it will take to carry this plan to fruition. But first he gives some historical background on another feckless president in our past:

If there’s one thing that the Carter Administration can be given credit for, it’s creating the new wave of Islamist terrorism, both Sunni, operating out of Afghanistan, and Shiite, operating out of Iran. The Carter Administration cracked down on Israel and put its “faith” in Muslim terrorists, who then went on to wage war on America, even while Carter was in office.

28 years after Carter was removed from office, we’re in reruns again with the Obama Administration, which is not only following the Carter line, but whose plans greatly exceed it. 28 years ago, Wahhabi Sunni and Shiite terrorists were generally an afterthought when compared to the standard USSR backed Marxist terrorist groups, such as the PLO.

Today, thanks in part to the Carter Administration, they control several countries and have designs on several more. From Pakistan to Afghanistan, from Gaza to Lebanon, from the Middle East to Southeast Asia, the threat is very real and bigger than ever particularly as the race by both Sunni and Shiite groups to build and deploy nuclear weapons continues.

Like Carter before him, Obama has chosen to cut backdoor deals with the Mullahs in Iran, offering them power over Iraq and Afghanistan, in exchange for quieting things down enough to let him hang up a Mission Accomplished banner and pull the troops out. “Peace with honor”, preferably before the next election. The rape law for Shiites in Afghanistan, the push for a US funded Hamas/Fatah Unity government in the territories and the rising expansion of the Taliban are all fruits of this arrangement.

I’m not so sure that Afghanistan is a done deal, but SK seems on target here for what lies in store for Iraq. Iran has been working with Muqtada al-Sadr, biding their time until the draw down of US and coalition troops is sufficient that Iran and Sadr can take over. It will be Saddam Redux, only with the Shi’ites (and Iran) in control and the Sunnis as a minority.

If you factor in the Kurds to the north and their ambitious plans (they are Sunni), you have the makings of a (possibly tri-partite) civil war. Don’t forget Iran has been bombing some of the Kurds of late, claiming they are only hitting PKK members inside the Iraqi border up there. Meanwhile, in a perennial Spring ritual Turkey masses on its border with Iraq to kill a few hundred Kurds. At least I presume they did. I didn't check it this year, but you usually have to search since the media doesn't give the story much coverage.

As has been repeatedly noted, the Kurds are the largest ethnic group not to have its own state. If Turkey and Iran have their way, the entity of Kurdistan will be murdered in the womb. However, the Peshmerga will put up a fierce fight, so who knows?

Sultan Knish continues:
- - - - - - - - -
If Iran is to be our new best friend under this arrangement, Israel is to be our new best enemy.

Obama stacked the deck by deploying Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State in a position that gave her an important title, but absolutely no power to go with it, while stacking the National Security Council and even the Pentagon with oil appointees in the pockets of the Saudis or his own left wing radical friends.

Israel electing a conservative government really put the ball into play, freeing up even more resources for attacking Israel. The strategy runs something like this.

The Obama Administration has broken down the Israel problem into two subsections, Israel itself, and American Jews.

Obama’s people have studied the problem and understand where Carter went wrong. Obama does not want to have the same image problems as Carter in the Jewish community. Should that happen, the Beloved Leader and his lapdog press are fully prepared to unleash a Chavez style hate-on targeting American Jews. But that would be inconvenient and messy. [my emphasis --D]

“Messy”? I’m not so sure. American liberal Jews are already so full of self-hatred that you can’t make much change there. It will simply increase the breast-beating that already goes on.

Knish sees it this way:

So Obama’s people have split their attention in handling the two factors as two different problems.

American Jews - Obama has been clever about putting his Jewish appointees front and center. Like many minorities, some American Jews suffer from self-esteem problems that are soothed when they see a seeming acceptance. Of course what they fail to realize is that exploitation is not acceptance. And that Obama’s appointees are creatures of his backers, Nazi collaborators like Soros, who have nothing but contempt for Jews, individually or collectively.

While outwardly courting Jews, Obama’s people have also been quietly shoving Jewish organizations and their leaders into a corner. Within the Jewish organizational world there has been a silent but deadly takeover of major Jewish groups by left wing radicals. Former alumni of the far left wing and anti-Israel groups like Breira or Coname in the 70’s have been elevated to key positions in such organizations as the UJA Federation. Behind the scenes any Jewish leaders who expressed even doubts about Obama during the primaries were intimidated and silenced.

Much as with conservatives, a list has been drawn up of those figures who can be won over, and those who cannot. The ones who can be won over are described as “moderates”, the ones who cannot be won over are described as “extremists”.

Meanwhile a bevy of left wing Jewish In Name Only groups have been organized to play their part. Key among them is the Soros funded J Street, a group created as an anti-Israel lobby meant to eventually replace AIPAC. Meanwhile AIPAC itself has been kept on the ropes with such things as the well timed Harman leak.** The message once again is fairly clear, cooperate and keep quiet, or we’ll destroy you.

Here’s the plan to co-opt the domestic Jews:

[…]

1.) Co-opt existing Jewish organizations and swing them to the left using old school 70’s leftists.

2.) Create new “progressive” organizations to appeal to a younger generation of ethnically Jewish youth detached from any actual identity. Have these organizations generate attacks on the Israeli government and pro-Israel Jews, while creating phony polls indicating that most American Jews are behind them and Obama.

3.) Silence and intimidate remaining Jewish organizations and leaders behind the scenes.

The overall idea is to keep a happy face pasted on American Jewry while the knives are out in the dark.

Does this sound paranoid? Then you don’t understand the mission, the strategy, or the tactics of this administration. We can play a wait-and-see game, observing and checking the facts against Knish’s assertions. It shouldn’t take long. And it should be easier, given how distracted we all are with the economy.

Here’s the plan for Israel:

…The basic understanding in the Obama Administration is that Israel Must Go. In the worldview of the more moderate Obama appointees, Israel is a destabilizing factor in the Middle East. To the more left wing Obama advisors, Israel is a Western imperialist colonialist state that must be destroyed in the name of revolutionary justice. To the Islamist mindset, Israel is a Kufir state that has no right to exist in the Dar Al Islam.

While intractably hostile to Israel, the Obama Administration wants to avoid the kind of public confrontations that marked the Carter and Bush Sr administrations. Instead they would much rather model the way that the Clinton Administration waged a quiet war against Israel, removing one government, and forcing extensive concessions to terrorists, all the while keeping a happy face pasted on the whole affair.

On the one hand that means avoiding harsh public attacks on Israel, but keeping the pressure up for Israel to make extensive far-reaching one sided concessions, to accept Saudi and Arab League “peace plans”, to legitimize Hamas as the new government of the Palestinian Authority, and to insure that Israel does not reply to any rocket or terrorist attacks.

There. We have some specific tactics to check here. The questions to find answers for in the short-term are quite concrete:

  • Will Israel accept Hamas as the new government?
  • Will Israel agree to Saudi and/or Arab League peace plans?
  • Will Israel be cowed into not returning rocket fire when it is hit?

Knish outlines other plans the American administration has to deal with Israel, financial and military strategies:

On the financial side, the goal will be to bring down the Netanyahu government coalition by destabilizing Israel economically. This is the surest and most direct path to bringing down Israel’s conservative government and replacing it with a left of center coalition. The Obama Administration has a wide variety of tactics at its disposal for doing so, from the overt, such as targeting Israeli exports and imports, to the covert, that would involve targeting the Shekel.

Then Knish tacks back to American domestic clampdowns:

Additionally fundraising in the US could be investigated and groups such as the Jewish National Fund, prevented from raising money in the US. All of these have been in play before at one time or another.

For the military side, I’d love to know what intel people think of his fisking of Obama’s plan:

On the military side, Obama’s people will make their non-existent efforts to stop Iran’s nukes conditional on more concessions to terrorists. Since Israel will never be able to make enough concessions and since Obama is working with Iran, rather than working to stop Iran’s nukes, this is a hollow charade.

Furthermore while Israel has already been locked out of the military technology pipeline for anything cutting edge, it still remains dependent on US military equipment for parts and supplies. The decades of US foreign aid have also served to create dependency. Unlike many other countries, including even Sweden, Israel does not have its own jet fighter. Israel’s Air Force is heavily dependent on US weapons, parts and equipment. Cutting Israel off, would leave the Israeli military dangerously vulnerable in the case of a war. This is an effective chokehold that has been used before to prevent Israel from attacking Saddam Hussein during the Gulf War, as well as preventing Israel from carrying out a preemptive strike against its enemies before the Yom Kippur War.

The perfect plan:

The overall Obama policy will be to push Israel to the brink, using financial and military blackmail against the Netanyahu government, while maintaining control over American Jews to prevent any protests or backtalk.

And begging won’t help:

The more Israel will offer, the more the Obama Administration will tighten the screws. No offer will be good enough, and Israel will be blamed for every breakdown in talks and every bit of violence that takes place. The media will portray Israel and particularly Netanyahu as extremist and intransigent. Hamas will be slowly whitewashed in the media, the same way that Arafat’s goons were, (assuming that they prove more willing to cooperate in creating a positive media image of themselves than Ahmadinejad is.)

If the world media whitewashes Hamas any more than it already does, those people will not just act like the KKK, they’ll finally look like them.

Here’s the final scene in Act V, when there is only one person left to declaim about the mistakes Israel made (three guesses as to Whom will be standing center stage making sad noises about the “poor Jews”?):

The plan is to destroy Israel, and to do it by pushing Israel to the edge of the cliff and then over the cliff. Israel’s enemies will be getting top of the line US military equipment. Israel will not. Israel will be squeezed economically until the Netanyahu government collapses, leaving a weak left wing leader like Livni in charge of Israel, and in charge of acceding to the new Pharaoh’s demands.

Meanwhile so-called American Jewish groups will support Obama all the way, some because they were created precisely for that purpose, e.g. J-Street, and others because they have been hijacked, cowed or subverted.

That is the game plan and some of it’s coming. The rest is already here.

I think he’s right. And Obama will make Carter look harmless. Only G-d can help Israel at this point.

I wanted to read this but, sorry, I couldn't get past the 2nd line: powerful anti-Semites like George Soros.

His views on virtually every subject are mainstream in the Jewish community. Perhaps he's a bit more to the left than most Israel supporters but I can think of a people he hates much more than he'll ever hate Netanyahu voters.

Sultan Knish said...

Thank you first to Dymphana for quoting and linking my article

I would disagree with Avery.

This is hardly mainstream in the Jewish community, except among Soros backed groups

http://www.frontpagemag.com/readArticle.aspx?ARTID=25969

aside from creating left wing groups to push his agenda, Soros has no connection to the Jewish community and has made his views on Jews well known.

Dymphna said...

I don't agree. The J Street front well may destroy AIPAC. Let's see who's right when the time comes.

Soros is a parasite at best. He cripled Britain and never looked back.

Here's a part of an interview with him from Sixty Minutes:

Soros Interview On 60 MinutesWhen the Nazis occupied Budapest in 1944, George Soros’ father was a successful lawyer. He lived on an island in the Danube and liked to commute to work in a rowboat. But knowing there were problems ahead for the Jews, he decided to split his family up. He bought them forged papers and he bribed a government official to take 14-year-old George Soros in and swear that he was his Christian godson. But survival carried a heavy price tag. While hundreds of thousands of Hungarian Jews were being shipped off to the death camps, George Soros accompanied his phony godfather on his appointed rounds, confiscating property from the Jews.

(Vintage footage of Jews walking in line; man dragging little boy in line)

KROFT: (Voiceover) These are pictures from 1944 of what happened to George Soros’ friends and neighbors.

(Vintage footage of women and men with bags over their shoulders walking; crowd by a train)

KROFT: (Voiceover) You’re a Hungarian Jew…

Mr. SOROS: (Voiceover) Mm-hmm.

KROFT: (Voiceover) …who escaped the Holocaust…

(Vintage footage of women walking by train)

Mr. SOROS: (Voiceover) Mm-hmm.

(Vintage footage of people getting on train)

KROFT: (Voiceover) …by–by posing as a Christian.

Mr. SOROS: (Voiceover) Right.

(Vintage footage of women helping each other get on train; train door closing with people in boxcar)

KROFT: (Voiceover) And you watched lots of people get shipped off to the death camps.

Mr. SOROS: Right. I was 14 years old. And I would say that that’s when my character was made.

KROFT: In what way?

Mr. SOROS: That one should think ahead. One should understand and–and anticipate events and when–when one is threatened. It was a tremendous threat of evil. I mean, it was a–a very personal experience of evil.

KROFT: My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson.

Mr. SOROS: Yes. Yes.

KROFT: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews.

Mr. SOROS: Yes. That’s right. Yes.

KROFT: I mean, that’s–that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?

Mr. SOROS: Not–not at all. Not at all. Maybe as a child you don’t–you don’t see the connection. But it was–it created no–no problem at all.

KROFT: No feeling of guilt?

Mr. SOROS: No.

KROFT: For example that, ‘I’m Jewish and here I am, watching these people go. I could just as easily be there. I should be there.’ None of that?

Mr. SOROS: Well, of course I c–I could be on the other side or I could be the one from whom the thing is being taken away. But there was no sense that I shouldn’t be there, because that was–well, actually, in a funny way, it’s just like in markets–that if I weren’t there–of course, I wasn’t doing it, but somebody else would–would–would be taking it away anyhow. And it was the–whether I was there or not, I was only a spectator, the property was being taken away. So the–I had no role in taking away that property. So I had no sense of guilt.

====

He was a spectator. He was a child. So he feels no remorse. Most children caught up in that kind of double life and deception would have had a hellish time getting past those memories. But not Mr. Soros.

One satisfaction he didn't achieve: he publicly set out to destroy George Bush so he couldn't be elected and he failed. It sure wasn't for lack of trying.

I think everything he stands for is wrong. Not many people do I consider really evil, but he's one. No single person has done as much to polarize American politics as Soros has.

You think he's mainstream, I think he's a destroyer.

Sultan--

My pleasure. Now let's see how much of what you predict will come true. You've certainly made specific, concrete examples by which to measure this.

njartist said...

All of Obama's Anti-Israel/Semitic policies are being put in place very quickly: too quickly for them to have been formulated within the past 100+10 days. This means some person or persons have been planning this and putting the set pieces in place for years now.

Whoever is behind it has forgotten something: Jehovah is not an otiose God but an highly active One; and He protects Israel: He has made a promise that no weapon will prosper against Israel. If these anti-Semites have put into play their political and economic weapons, God will respond just as quickly: be prepared for considerable damage to the United States including natural disasters, economic woes, and unleashed terrorists within the U.S.

Slightly off Topic: I have been thinking for the past few days that the accusation that Obama was picked from his childhood up to be the Manchurian Candidate; or, at least that is the nebulous idea developing. I am of the opinion that a large set of *Obama* Manchurians were being groomed; and, over the years the set thinned out until fewer and fewer came into the lead. I think that the Manchurians who didn't make it are still in high enough positions to help Obama's handlers to move very quickly and effectively.

Gort said...

Whether or not Soros feels remorse for what apparently was a heart-hardening youthful experience, there is one aspect of his actions which should be noted. He has done the United States far greater actual harm than Julius and Ethel Rosenberg did. The fate they had was an awful one. Would that George should anticipate a similar end.

Whiskey said...

Netanyahu prior to the collapse of Kadima was a washed up, discredited force. Only the prospect of an Iranian nuclear surprise strike from Lebanon and Syria got him elected.

Obama's problem is that everyone in Israel knows he wishes to destroy Israel, and that most American Jews support this, being SWPL Yuppies rather than Jews as their primary identity. Israelis also understand that Obama's Democratic coalition of Gays, Hispanics, Blacks, and Women along with SWPL Yuppies are intensely anti-Semitic and anti-Israel.

Israel has nuclear weapons for just this occasion. Obama's leverage over Israel disappeared once it became abundantly clear that he aimed to help Iran destroy Israel.

Israel's trump card is a nuclear first strike against Iran that not only destroys Iran's nuclear materials and weaponization program, but kills a lot of people so that Iran does not have the means to reconstruct it. While making it abundantly clear that the course to destroying Israel is paved with the devastation of the nation that tries it (a message to Egypt and Syria and Saudi Arabia's nuclear ambitions).

Thus, problem solved.

Yes it's bloody and awful and people will hate Jews. What else is new? Israel already knows it cannot trust Obama, so his leverage is an invasion of Israel in response to Israel nuking Iran. Not only would he not have the US Military on board, he'd face an angry mob who would mostly sigh a big sigh of relief that Israel took action. Even if Iran has over 20 million dead. Iran is that hated by Americans, over the hostage crisis and much else. No amount of PC pandering will change it.

Now, it's a terrible thing. One that would be wished to be avoided. But withdrawal of American protection to Israel and other nuclear or nascent nuclear nations has consequences. Australia is arming up and probably quietly nuking up, as IMHO is Japan and Taiwan. Nations that know they cannot depend on the US will look to nukes to safeguard them, particularly against larger and more powerful neighbors. Poland, Czech Republic, and Hungary are likely to go this route against Russian absorption.

Israel has an existential choice: kill millions of Iranians and live, or die hated anyway. I think on balance they will choose life.

It's really quite remarkable that the Israelis elected Bibi. Given that most of them resemble Tivni.

Long term, Israel I'm sure can engineer replacements for the F-16 components, and there will always be sellers for buyers. I'm sure the Chinese will sell the basic plans for the F-22, which the Isrealis can then modify as they need.

Whiskey said...

Let me add, the question of Syria or Lebanon or Egypt or Saudi Arabia is quite secondary to Iranian nukes. Iran's nukes alone can in an instant, from Lebanon or Sryian territory, destroy Israel.

Therefore it is that threat that Israelis will address first, in my view.

laine said...

Israel's dire straits are in large part due to world Jews being divided into two camps with their admittedly superior intellectual resources working at cross purposes.

This is confusing to say the least for non-Jews who on the Left, find themselves shoulder to shoulder with Jews in their anti-semitism and on the Right, find they're defending Israel against Jews.

It seems as though the diaspora Leftist Jewish camp has more financial and communication resources and political influence, certainly on the Democrat party now in power in the US. Jewish resources are therefore being used to promote Leftism on steroids, a component of which is now the antisemitism of holding Israel up to impossible standards while giving a by to far worse (mostly Muslim) regimes.

Is the reasoning of American liberal Jews that they now have America to their liking through the Democratic party that will never be unseated and that Israel is therefore disposable and something of an embarrassment to them in their preferred leftist circles?

Really, the choices are coming down to Iran nuking Israel or Israel nuking Iran because divided world opinion let Iran gallop on with its program.

Leftists the world over including the Jewish component defeated any attempt to bring Iran to heel. How on earth do the majority of diaspora Jews imagine that their position will be improved by the obliteration of Israel by Iran or in the reverse case by the hatred that will be directed toward all Jews, even the leftist variety?

It appears that Leftism is such a powerful toxin that it corrodes even superior Jewish brains into suicidal denial or betrayal.

Sultan Knish said...

Those Jews who have worked to defeat it do not care about Israel or about Jews collectively

Like the Jewish Communists who helped fight to build a regime that nearly wiped out the Jews of Russia... they do not care about Jews in any collective sense.

They view Israel as a threat because it distances them from their fellow comrades on the left, and would very much like to see it gone.

You can find even mainstream Jewish liberals expressing similar sentiments, such as Richard Cohen at the Washington Post

to Jews on the Left, Israel is an unwanted embarrassment

Czechmade said...

"They view Israel as a threat because it distances them from their fellow comrades on the left, and would very much like to see it gone."

A good observation.

However with the Kurds it is more complicated. They are not only sunni.
So that they have a sying "I am Kurd first and then....". They are Kurdish Jews living now in Israel. And many Kurds (but how many?) view the Israelis as themselves - i.e. surrounded by Arabs or Turks.

Fellow Peacekeeper said...

So the the appointment of Rahm Emmanuel, David Axelrod, Larry Summers, Hillary, James Steinberg, Ron Klain, Richard Danzig, Richard Holbrooke, Dennis Ross, James Steinberg etc is just a cunning ploy?

laine said...

Fellow Peacekeeper, my point was that world Jews are divided between left and right, working at cross purposes, canceling each other out with the vast majority of American Jews (over 80%) supporting the Democrat party with votes and money.

If those names you listed are all Jewish members of Obama's administration, they are in the leftist camp. Likely their leftism trumps their Jewishness or at least their concern for Israel as Dem policies and Obama's coldness toward Israel's leaders demonstrate a very cavalier attitude about that country's continued existence.
