The Jewish-Zionist Lobby is losing its unique
power, and is well on its way to being defeated.
Prince of Persia

movies often act as an oracle on the country’s future policies. They
bombarded the Dune before bombing Tora Bora, they Wagged the Dog
before attacking Serbia and they dropped the Big Apple towers on the
screen not long before they did it for real. Is the Prince of
Persia, a new movie from Hollywood, a harbinger of the
“Sorry we have attacked your country! We shall
withdraw our troops and recompense you immediately! We went to war
because we were misled about your WMD programme” – these words of
the Prince of Persia do sound like a dress rehearsal of a real thing
to an Iraqi’s ears. Consider that the WMD lie in the movie was fed
by a bald Jewish-looking neo-con of a King’s brother who wanted to
seize power and secretly used the evil assassins, looking very
Israeli-like. The Prince, born in the slums and elevated by the King
for his merit alone, stops the war, makes peace with the enemy, and
reminds of Obama.
Is it on the way? Are there any tangible signs of
such a turn? Big ships cannot stop on a dime, advises the Nautical
Almanac. They may require as much as 5 miles to stop, with gears in
full reverse. Big ships may need 5-10 miles to turn. Now, what is
true for supertankers and aircraft carriers is equally true for the
biggest ship of all, the United States of America.
By the time of Obama’s inauguration, the Lobby
had an impressive influence over America, influence that some
experts would define as total control. The Lobby was closely
connected with the Israeli right-wing establishment. Its roots went
deeply into the coffers of Wall Street. Its fingers orchestrated the
US media. Europe was in constant fear of the Jews.
Within one year, the Lobby has lost much of its

It appears that President Obama is a cool
customer, who knows when to go forward and when it is good to wait.
He probably has learned how to catch the big fish. Meanwhile he is
undoing the financial basis of the Lobby.
The Madoff affair was a painful attack of the
Lobby’s purse. That criminal managed the funds of many Jewish
organizations. For mysterious reasons he admitted his crime, and
the dominoes began to fall. An old and venerable American Jewish
Congress went down, as well as many smaller bodies and
For obscure reasons, Lehman Brothers was
allowed to fall, starting the financial crisis. Lehman Brothers
was a prominent Jewish institution, actually a reincarnation of
the famous Kuhn, Loeb bank. It went down. Such a collapse could
not take place without the Obama Administration's blessing.
Now there is a lasting and sustained attack
on Goldman-Sachs, one of the biggest and power-connected
financial groups. Goldman-Sachs was described by the Israeli
newspaper Haaretz as an institution whose list of partners reads
like a list of East Side Synagogue donors, all Jewish. Now there
are daily reports of misdeeds and crimes committed by GS in the
US and elsewhere. GS can be tried, found guilty, dismantled and
its executives sued. If it goes down, and this is possible, the
Lobby will find itself in a harsh and inhospitable world. Obama
is closely connected to GS, the body that infiltrated all power
structures, but apparently he is not going out of his way to
In Israel, there is a feeling that the Dubai
debacle was played up by Obama. Israeli security services took a
proper lashing in Dubai. They had planned a small and neat trick:
the assassination of a Hamas official. But this crime provided Dubai
with an opportunity to out many Israeli spies, who apparently were
using the Gulf merchant city as their forward HQ in preparing an
action against Iran. From Dubai, it is possible to enter Iran even
without passport control. Dozens of Israeli spies weren’t there just
to kill a Hamas man; they were after bigger prey.
Now, not only have they been outed, but the modus
operandi of Israeli services who cloned European and American
passports wholesale was made public as well. After the UK, Australia
expelled an Israeli ‘diplomat’ representative of the Mossad. In
France, where the Zionists were at peak strength, now there are big
changes. President Sarkozy (despite his Jewish roots) has expressed
his lack of patience with Israel. One of the best known political
writers of France, Regis Debray has published a book criticising the
French Jewish community for their support of Israel. In the UK, a
politician that has constantly criticised Israel has become the
deputy prime minister.
In the old argument of Dog and Tail, the Dog
decided to downgrade the Tail, while the pathetic attempts of the
Tail to order the Dog around had failed miserably, and not for lack
of trying. Apparently, somewhere within the US establishment it was
decided that the American imperial interests are not being served by
Israel, and moreover, that the Jewish establishment has become too
overbearing and bitchy for its own good. It was decided that the
Jewish shrew must be tamed, and so she shall.
I doubt the Israeli wet dream of attacking Iran
will materialize now. The chances are 80 to 20 against such a move.
However we will have a storm warning: if and when Mrs Tsipi Livni
joins the government, the chances will go up to 50:50. Israel has
never entered a war without the substantial support of the left, and
Mr Ehud Barak’s presence is not sufficient.
Taming is not breaking. A cautious President
Obama did send signals that he is not looking for an all-out war
with the organized Jewry. He met with Elie Wiesel and comforted him.
He invited more Jewish leaders to the White House – and at the same
time he allowed Israel to take a substantial beating. Obama is
devious, observers in Israel feel; he is playing a tricky game of
embracing with one arm and pushing away with another arm.
It appears that there is a forthcoming weather
change: at least the older generation of Jewish leaders –
conservative, belligerent, aggressive, suspicious, - will give way
to a new generation, that of Dan Axelrod, Rahm Emmanuel, J-street
and the like. Whether it will be a change of style or of substance,
it is too early to say – but style is substance, too. Now the web
critics stressed the Zionist roots of Rahm Emmanuel, but his recent
visit to Israel was stormy: Israelis booed him and called him (what
Sure, this will not be enough for many of our
friends. People began to pour out their disappointment with Obama
within 24 hours of his inauguration. “Wot! A whole day has passed
and the American troops are not out of Iraq yet, Israel still gets
American support and the bankers are being bailed out?” However,
this was to be expected. The US was fully geared to go in a certain
direction; even if Obama would like to change course, it would take
a longish time.
