For the honest historian, it comes as no surprise government either
kills its own citizens or allows enemies to do the same in an effort to score
propaganda points or as an excuse to commence hostilities.
Examples are numerous, from FDR denying Americans passport and travel documents
to let them flee the Japanese onslaught of the Philippines in the lead up to
the Second World War (see US
prisoners claim Roosevelt left them in Philippines deliberately) to Operation
Northwoods, a plan drawn up by the Joint Chiefs of Staff to stage fake terror
attacks in America (including assassination, airplane hijacking, and sinking
of boats) in order to devise a pretext to invade Cuba.
Indeed, some of us, routinely dismissed as tinfoil hatters, believe elements
within the United States government engineered and executed the terrorist events
of September 11, 2001, as a way to get the ball rolling on the “war against
terrorism,” that is to say the war against Islam, currently heating up
big time in the Middle East.
Considering the above, and other examples, including the sinking of the Lusitania,
a passenger ship loaded up with a secret cargo of munitions (a fact admitted
by the decidedly less than conspiratorial Encyclopedia
Britannica), which contributed indirectly to the entry of the United States
into World War I, and the suspicious sinking of the Maine in the Havana harbor,
used as a pretext for the United States to declare war on Spain in 1898, the
allegation “Israel has deliberately allowed Hezbollah to retain some of
it’s fire power, essentially for PR purposes, because having Israeli civilians
killed helps them in the public relations war” should not be a startling
or especially mind-boggling revelation.
According to Tom
Ricks, a reporter for the Washington Post, during an appearance on CNN’s
Reliable Sources, citing “military analysts,” Israel “purposely
has left pockets of Hezbollah rockets in Lebanon, because as long as they’re
being rocketed, they can continue to have a sort of moral equivalency in their
operations in Lebanon.”
Or, put differently, if Hezbollah continues to rocket northern Israel, the
IOF may claim “moral equivalency” and continue its push into Lebanon,
once again to the Litani River, a plentiful source of fresh water that long
ago figured into Israel’s calculations of its endangered water resources
(see Angela Joy Moss, ICE
Case Studies, Litani River and Israel-Lebanon), in fact a resource long
coveted by the Zionists, going as far back as Chaim Weizmann in 1919 and, a
few decades later, Ben-Gurion and Moshe Dayan, who advocated Israeli occupation
of Lebanon up to the Litani River (see Stephen C. Lonergan and David B. Brooks,
Watershed: the Role of Fresh Water in the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict).
Ronald Bleier wrote for
the Middle East Labor Bulletin, Spring 1994:
Zionist interest in the waters of Lebanon goes back as least as far as the
Paris Peace Conference of 1919 when Chaim Wietzman wrote to the British Prime
Minister explaining that because of its water requirements, a Jewish homeland
in Palestine must include the Litani River.
In the 50’s, Israeli Prime Minister Moshe Sharett recorded in his diaries
that Moshe Dayan’s plan for the control of the Litani River was to “‘enter
Lebanon, occupy the relevant territory’ then the ‘territory south
of the Litani will be annexed to Israel and everything will fall into place.’”
(Quoted in Amery, pp. 18-19)
In addition to establishing a “security zone,” or maybe we should
call it a “fresh water for Israel” zone, allowing Hezbollah to fire
rockets more or less unhampered into Israel, and thus killing a token number
of Israelis, addresses the “moral high ground problem,” that is
to say it neutralizes, at least for supporters of Israel, the troublesome fact
the IOF has killed around a thousand Lebanese to date (no doubt this number
is much higher), the vast majority civilians, a third to half children. In addition,
it allows them to reduce Lebanon to ruins and impoverish its people, part of
a well-documented Zionist goal in its own right (see Oded Yinon).
If indeed Tom Ricks is correct—and the fact he works for the
Washington Post should, at minimum, send up a red flag, as the Post was long
ago co-opted by the CIA under Operation
Mockingbird—it represents another example of government shamelessly
using mostly gullible and unassuming citizens as little more than expendable
pawns, as Hitler, Stalin, FDR, Mao, and any number of other cold-blooded leaders
have done since time immemorial.
