Flak Flies When One Brings in the Elephant


By Ray McGovern - Posted on 14 February 2011

Speaking of Israel
Ray McGovern

I had two hours Friday evening on talk radio (KGO AM, Bay Area) to make some comments about what one might expect from Israel in reaction to the uprising in Cairo and the likely spread of unrest to Jordan and other countries. I think this is one $64 question.

Israel is already the big loser here (and I mean BIG). The Israelis have seldom been so isolated, having forfeited their important friendship with the Turks; having had to look on as Hezbollah has become even more powerful in Lebanon; having watched a very spooked King next door in Jordan; and having witnessed the unceremonious exit of Mubarak, who for three decades turned his back on the Palestinians and acquiesced in Israeli regional hegemony. Adding to the misery, this time the revolution WAS televised!

It is hard to gauge precisely what the Israelis might be capable of doing. But sitting around passively and watching events unfold is not my idea of how Tel Aviv is likely to behave, given the very high stakes. And thoughtful Washington officials, if any, might wish to be alert.

Rarely is there time on radio (much less TV) to articulate key points and actually to conduct candid conversations with those who call in. That happened on Friday. You will not believe some of the callers!

There are likely to be casualties. I hope my interviewer did not need her job, and that the listeners who threatened her and her three children will not be able to make good on their threats. She has described the situation as “pretty intense.”

Also, wanted all you War-Is-a-Lie folks to know that I have never felt better; last week’s CT scan shows no recurrence of the lymphoma; I’m in high spirits (and I don’t mean just the liter of Jameson 12-year-old I brought back from Shannon). This just by way of saying I do not intend to commit suicide anytime soon — ever, actually. I do take walks in nearby parks, though, so if I end up like David Kelly, please look into it.

I am trying to get a tape of the KGO two-hour segments but not sure I will succeed. Meanwhile, for those who may be interested, one can listen by following these instructions, which worked for me. Each hour can be downloaded from the website: kgoradio.com. Go to the pod cast section and it will say "hourly archives". Choose Friday and each hour to download — 7:00 to 8:00 PM; and 8:00 to 9:00 PM (Pacific Time). They will only be there for one week and then will be replaced by the following Friday's program.

The two hours, especially with the reaction and questions from the call-ins, are, as instructive as they are rare. (Otherwise I would not indulge in this shameless self-promotion.) It is a pain listening to the commercials, but they kept letting me come back when they were finished. Perhaps one can find a way to fast forward through the commercials.

Alternatively, the downloads may also prove a good remedy for insomnia. I plan to write something more substantive on all this. Thus far, very few have dared to talk about the big elephant still in the room now that the Egyptian uprising has succeeded.

This ol' fool from North Cackilacki would add to this accurate list of self-imposed Israeli isolation factors . . .

. . . the observations of Dr. Alan Sabrosky, Director of Studies, Strategic Studies Institute of the U.S. Army War College:

"What we need to stand up and say is not only did they attack the USS Liberty, they did 9/11. They did it. I have had long conversations over the past two weeks with contacts at the Army War College, at it's headquarters, Marine Corps and I made it absolutely clear in both cases that it is 100 percent certain that 9/11 was a Mossad operation. Period."

This is the BIG Elephant in the room . . . ;-)

Just ask Australian Labour Leader, Kevin Bracken, who like U.N. Special Rapporteur Richard Falk, merely questioned the obvious "holes" in the Official 9-11 Commission Report.

Notice in the above Anthony Lawson video, all the attacks on Kevin Bracken are like those against Richard Falk . . . ad hominem assaults.

Yet, the questions posited remain not only unanswered, but aren't even being addressed or acknowledged.

Likewise, when the Iranian President dared ask the same questions at the U.N., he is personally attacked . . . yet the questions remain.

Yet, we can see by this International "kvetching" a common pattern . . . Zionist 5th Columnists defending Israel and World Zionism.

Thank you brother Ray McGovern for being brave enough to point out the Elephant in the room. I can't wait to hear the Zionist "Mega-phonies" that called in during this radio broadcast . . .

Like this ol' fool has said from the beginning,

"The Zionists doth kvetch too much, methinks" . . . ;-)

Connect the dotz . . . see the pattern . . .

Cui bono? Who benefits?

And more importantly, who is the MOST afraid of TRUTH?? . . . ;-)

"I'm fixing a hole where the rain gets in
And stops my mind from wandering
Where it will go
I'm filling the cracks that ran through the door
And kept my mind from wandering
Where it will go
And it really doesn't matter if I'm wrong
I'm right"
- "I'm Fixing A Hole" by The Beatles

peace.
