by Greg Palast

 

Did the Jews do it?

 

The US Congress will open hearings this week on the War in Iraq — a wee bit late one might think. But one question at the forefront of the minds of many on both the Left and the Right is sure not to be asked: Did the Jews do it? I mean, after killing Jesus, did the Elders of Zion manipulate the government of the United States into invading Babylon as part of a scheme to abet the expansion of Greater israel?

 

The question was first posed to me in 2004 when I was speaking at a meeting of Mobilization for Peace in San Jose. A member of the audience asked, “Put it together — Who’s behind this war? Paul Wolfowitz and Elliott Abrams and the Project for a “Jew” American Century and, and, why don’t you talk about that, huh? And…”

 

But the questioner never had the full opportunity to complete his query because, flushed and red, he began to charge the stage. The peace activists attempted to detain the gentleman — whose confederates then grabbed some chairs to swing. As the Peace Center was taking on a somewhat warlike character, I chose to call in the authorities and slip out the back.

 

Still, his question intrigued me. As an investigative reporter, “Who’s behind this war?” seemed like a reasonable challenge — and if it were a plot of Christ-killers and Illuminati, so be it. I just report the facts, ma’am.

 

And frankly, at first, it seemed like the gent had a point, twisted though his spin might be. There was Paul Wolfowitz, before Congress in March 2003, offering Americans the bargain of the century: a free Iraq — not “free” as in “freedom and democracy” but free in the sense of this won’t cost us a penny. Wolfowitz testified: “There’s a lot of money to pay for this that doesn’t have to be U.S. taxpayer money.”

 

A “Free” Iraq

 

And where would these billions come from? Wolfowitz told us: “It starts with the assets of the Iraqi people… The oil revenues of that country could bring between $50 and $100 billion over the next two or three years.”

 

This was no small matter. The vulpine Deputy Defense Secretary knew that the number one question on the minds of Americans was not, “Does Saddam really have the bomb?” but “What’s this little war going to cost us?”

 

However, Wolfowitz left something out of his testimony: the truth. I hunted for weeks for the source of the Pentagon’s oil revenue projections — and found them. They were wildly different from the Wolfowitz testimony. But this was not perjury. Ever since the conviction of Elliott Abrams for perjury before Congress during the Iran-Contra hearings, neither Wolfowitz nor the other Bush factotums swear an oath before testifying. If you don’t raise your hand and promise to tell the truth, “so help me, God,” you’re off the hook with federal prosecutors.

 

How the Lord will judge that little ploy, we cannot say.

 

But Wolfowitz’s little numbers game can hardly count as a Great Zionist conspiracy. That seemed to come, at first glance, in the form of a confidential 101-page document slipped to our team at BBC’s Newsnight. It detailed the economic “recovery” of Iraq’s post-conquest economy. This blueprint for occupation, we learned, was first devised in secret in late 2001.

 

Notably, this program for Iraq’s recovery wasn’t written by Iraqis; rather, it was promoted by the neo-conservatives of the Defense Department, home of Abrams, Wolfowitz, Harold Rhode and other desktop Napoleons unafraid of moving toy tanks around the Pentagon war room.

 

Nose-Twist’s Hidden Hand

 

The neo-cons’ 101-page confidential document, which came to me in a brown envelope in February 2003, just before the tanks rolled, goes boldly where no U.S. invasion plan had gone before: the complete rewrite of the conquered state’s “policies, law and regulations.” A cap on the income taxes of Iraq’s wealthiest was included as a matter of course. And this was undoubtedly history’s first military assault plan appended to a program for toughening the target nation’s copyright laws. Once the 82nd Airborne liberated Iraq, never again would the Ba’athist dictatorship threaten America with bootleg dubs of Britney Spears’ “…Baby One More Time.”

 

It was more like a corporate takeover, except with Abrams tanks instead of junk bonds. It didn’t strike me as the work of a Kosher Cabal for an Imperial israel. In fact, it smelled of pork — Pig Heaven for corporate America looking for a slice of Iraq, and I suspected its porcine source. I gave it a big sniff and, sure enough, I smelled Grover Norquist.

 

Norquist is the capo di capi of right-wing, big-money influence peddlers in Washington. Those jealous of his inside track to the White House call him “Gopher Nose-Twist.”

 

A devout Christian, Norquist channeled a million dollars to the Christian Coalition to fight the devil’s tool, legalized gambling. He didn’t tell the Coalition that the loot came from an Indian tribe represented by Norquist’s associate, Jack Abramoff. (The tribe didn’t want competition for its own casino operations.)

 

I took a chance and dropped in on Norquist’s L Street office, and under a poster of his idol [’NIXON — NOW MORE THAN EVER”], Norquist took a look at the “recovery” plan for Iraq and practically jumped over my desk to sign it, filled with pride at seeing his baby. Yes, he promoted the privatizations, the tax limit for the rich, and the change in copyright law, all concerns close to the hearts and wallets of his clients.

 

“The Oil” on Page 73

 

The very un-Jewish Norquist may have framed much of the U.S. occupation grabfest, but there was, without doubt, one notable item in the 101-page plan for Iraq which clearly had the mark of Zion on it. On page seventy-three the plan called for the “privatization… [of] the oil and supporting industries,” the sell-off of every ounce of Iraq’s oil fields and reserves. Its mastermind, I learned, was Ariel Cohen of the Heritage Foundation.

 

For the neo-cons, this was The Big One. Behind it, no less a goal than to bring down the lynchpin of Arab power, Saudi Arabia.

 

It would work like this: the Saudi’s power rests on control of OPEC, the oil cartel which, as any good monopoly, withholds oil from the market, kicking up prices. Sell-off Iraq’s oil fields and private companies will pump oil in their little Iraqi patches to the max. Iraq, the neo-cons hoped, would crank out six million barrels of oil a day, bust its OPEC quota, flood the world market, demolish OPEC and, as the price of oil fell off a cliff, Saudi Arabia would fall to its knees.

 

“It’s a no-brainer,” Cohen told me, at his office at Heritage. It was a dim little cubby, in which, in our hour or two together, the phone rang only once. For a guy who was supposed to be The Godfather of a globe-spanning Zionist scheme to destroy the Arab oil monopoly, he seemed kind of, well… pathetic.

 

And he failed. While the Norquist-promoted sell-offs, flat taxes and copyright laws were dictated into Iraqi law by occupation chief Paul Bremer, the Cohen neo-con oil privatization died an unhappy death. What happened, Ari?

 

“Arab economists,” he hissed, “hired by the State Department… the witches brew of the Saudi Royal family and Soviet Ostblock.”

 

Well, the Soviet Ostblock does not exist, but the Arab economists do. I spoke with them in Riyadh, in London, in California, in wry accents mixing desert and Oxford drawls. They speak with confidence, knowing Saudi Arabia’s political authority is protected by the royal families — of Houston petroleum.

 

“Enhance OPEC”

 

After two mad years of hunting, I discovered the real plan for Iraq’s oil, the one that keeps our troops in Fallujah. Some 323 pages long and deeply confidential, it was drafted at the James A. Baker III Institute in Houston, Texas, under the strict guidance of Big Oil’s minions. It was the culmination of a series of planning groups that began in December 2000 with key players from the Baker Institute and Council on Foreign Relations (including one Ken Lay of Enron). This was followed by a State Department invasion-planning session in Walnut Creek, California, in February 2001, only weeks after Bush and Cheney took office. Its concepts received official blessing after a March 2001 gathering of oil chiefs (and Lay) with Cheney where the group reviewed with the Vice-President the map of Iraq’s oil fields.

 

Once I discovered the Big Oil plan, several of the players agreed to speak with me (not, to the chagrin of some, realizing that I rarely hold such conversions without secretly recording them). Most forthright was Philip Carroll, former CEO of Shell Oil USA, who was flown into Baghdad on a C-17 to make sure there would be no neo-con monkey business in America’s newest oil fields.

 

It had been a very good war for Big Oil, with tripled oil prices meaning tripled profits. In Houston, I asked Carroll, a commanding, steel-straight chief executive, about Ari Cohen’s oil privatization plan, the anti-Saudi “no-brainer.”

 

“I would agree with that statement” Caroll told me, “privatization is a no-brainer. It would only be thought about by someone with no brain.”

 

Bush world is divided in two: neo-cons on one side, and the Establishment (which includes the oil companies and the Saudis) on the other. The plan the Establishment created, crafted by Houston oil men, called for locking up Iraq’s oil with agreements between a new state oil company under “profit-sharing agreements” with “IOCs” (International Oil Companies). The combine could “enhance the [iraq’s] government’s relationship with OPEC,” it read, by holding the line on quotas and thereby upholding high prices.

 

Wolfowitz Dammerung: Twilight Of The Neo-Con Gods

 

So there you have it. Wolfowitz and his neo-con clique — bookish, foolish, vainglorious — had their kicked utterly, finally, and convincingly by the powers of petroleum, the Houston-Riyadh Big Oil axis.

 

Between the neo-cons and Big Oil, it wasn’t much of a contest. The end-game was crushing, final. The israelites had lost again in the land of Babylon. And to make certain the arriviste neo-cons got the point, public punishment was exacted, from exile to demotion to banishment. In January 2005, neo-con pointman Douglas Feith resigned from the Defense Department; his assistant Larry Franklin later was busted for passing documents to pro-israel lobbyists.

 

The State Department’s knuckle-dragging enforcer of neo-con orthodoxies, John Bolton, was booted from Washington to New York to the powerless post of U.N. Ambassador.

 

Finally, on March 16, 2005, second anniversary of the invasion, neo-con leader of the pack Wolfowitz was cast out of the Pentagon war room and tossed into the World Bank, moving from the testosterone-powered, war-making decision center to the lending office for Bangladeshi chicken farmers.

 

“The realists,” crowed the triumphant editor of the journal of the Council on Foreign Relations, “have defeated the fantasists!”

 

So much for the Big Zionist Conspiracy that supposedly directed this war. A half- dozen confused Jews, wandering in the policy desert a long distance from mainstream Jewish views, armed only with Leo Strauss’ silly aphorisms, were no match for Texas oil majors and OPEC potentates with a combined throw weight of half a trillion barrels of oil.

Notwithstanding any conspiracy theories, I normally try to post articles which have some level of credibility. I agree with you - Greg Palast I think has got quite a good reputation as a serious reporter.

 

The history of oil especially but not exclusively in the Middle East has shown a substantial level of intrigue, in many instances bordering on conspiracy, if not actual conspiracy.

Very true. Moral of the story: Don't just read the headlines. In any event, this headline was a question, not a statement.

 

It is one viewpoint. There is a big unanswered question though - who really controls the oil majors? Hopefully there are no Jews or rather Zionists hiding behind all those half a trillion barrels of oil or manipulating them.

 

Conspiracy? Who knows! Since conspirators act in great secrecy and have many methods of hiding their tracks, it would obviously not be easy to make a case against them. Sometimes suspicion, healthy scepticism and circumstantial evidence is all we have to go on.

 

Conspirators beware! We are on to you! :D

I suppose he read more than the headline. After reading the first paragraphs, I started a reply to your post to refute this antisemitic stuff. But the more I read, the less I found to refute, and then I threw all I had written away :D

 

Conspiracy? Who knows!

I don't believe there is a successful global conspiracy. There may be pinkies and brains here and there, but like these comic heroes they cannot succed. A limited conspiracy, as described by Greg Palast, is more likely.

 

And when I remember how the lies about Iraq were denounced as such by German public-owned tv before the war started (AFAIR up to now all points have been acknowledged by the Bush administration), we only have the choice between an administration (not the president only) that was less informed than the German ARD channel, or an administration that knew it was telling lies, biased estimates, and exaggerations. The first possibility is a mystery to me (no-one ever claimed the ARD "correspondents" were better organized than,say, the CIA), and the second possibilitiy could easily explained by a conspiracy.

I guess you can say that many of our Neocons are Zionist Jews, and have israeli citizenship and lecture in israeli institutions.

 

Plus, they do have dual loyalties. Many Americans would say that their allegiance is primarily to israel, than to the United States.

 

Hence, they'd be more caring of israel's interests than ours, and would want israel to be the hegemon and unrivaled state in the Greater Middle East.

Thezman: they do have dual loyalties. Many Americans would say that their allegiance is primarily to israel, than to the United States.

 

Yes, they probably said that after reading more than one place that Isrealis with dual citizenship put israel FIRST. This does not sit well with our taxpayers when we discover things like the comptroller of the Pentagon, Dov Zakheim, a dual israeli citizen, presided over the loss of 2.6 TRILLION from the pentagon budget. That kind of money could pay for a lot of black operations; it seems like enough for a dozen Operation Northwoods, and they'd still have some change.

 

Here is something I found on the topic of Dov the Dual Citizen:

 

 

The accountants at the Pentagon claim that they cannot account for $2.6 trillion. The man at the top of this accounting mess is Dov Zakheim, a dual israeli/American citizen.

In testimony before the Congress, Donald Rumsfeld minimizes it as an innocent mistake:

 

 

SEC. RUMSFELD:

...

I know Dr. Zakheim's been trying to hire CPAs because the financial systems of the department are so snarled up that we can't account for some $2.6 trillion in transactions that exist, if that's believable. And yet we're told that we can't hire CPAs to help untangle it in many respects.

...

 

 

And then he makes a joke about it:

 

 

REP. LEWIS: Thank you, Mr. Moran.

Mr. Secretary, the first time and the last time that Dov Zackheim and I broke bread together, he told me he would have a handle on that 2.6 trillion by now. (Laughter.) But we'll discuss that a little --

 

SEC. RUMSFELD: He's got a handle; it's just a little hot. (Laughter.)

 

 

The transcript is here:

dod dot gov/speeches/2001/s20010716-secdef2.html

The judicial-inc view of Dov Zackheim:

(www.)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_judicial-inc"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_judicial-inc[/url] dot biz/Dov_zakheim.htm

 

For the record, I consider Zionists distinct from Jews in general.

 

Peace,

As do I :D

 

I read in a New York paper an article that was also printed in YNetnews.com, that the Pentagon has been revoking classified clearances from many employees who have dual US/israeli citizenship.

no the invasion was not a jewish conspiracy, nor was 911. i should also point out for the Islamic fundamentalists on this site that 'the protocols of the elders of zion' is a fraud and was mostly copied from a a tsarist russian manual.

 

im sick and tired of this sites blatant anti semitism. how would you feel if every thread i started was 'is war on terror a muslim conspiracy' etc etc. lets talk about somthing more important these days. the brewing civil war in iraq between shi'utes and sunni muslims.

If the protocols were a forgery then they were one hell of a forgery Since everything on it turned out to be true (the rise of Hitler, people worshipping sports and leaving Christianity, it's all there and it all happened. So you saying the guy who wrote it was a Prophet who decided to lie and accuse the Jews???)

As far as I know, the Russian who wrote these protocols used a french satirical writing titled "Dialogue aux enfers entre Machiavel et Montesquieu" (dialogue in hell between Machiavelli and Montesquieu) written as a "defense" (i.e. denunciation) of Napolean III. in 1864. There is indeed a paragraph in the protocols where the conquer of the Papal State by Italy (1866/71) is predicted. That Russian seems not to have known the meaning of the allusions he faithfully wrote into protocols that should document a 1897 event :D

This is, of course, a buddhist conspiracy to weaken all the three monotheistic religions :D [to the dumb readers: this is a joke] :D

I cant see where Hitler is predicted in there, but it is clearly predicted that the king of Jews would rule over the world in a short time (i.e. the first half of the 20th century).

I read the protocols, you can not fool me with these wrong propositions.

Peace from our Lord,

 

Last time I didn't have enough time to answer all points, so let me look closer by your statement:

 

If the protocols were a forgery then they were one hell of a forgery Since everything on it turned out to be true

Everything? icon14.gif

 

the rise of Hitler,

No, that was not predicted in the protocols. :D

 

people worshipping sports and leaving Christianity,

As to worshipping sports, I'm not sure. As to leaving Christianity, it has been predicted many times. Not just in the protocols. Moreover, this prediction is partly no prediction at all, because this movement away from Christianity already started with the french revolution.

 

But what about these predictions:

The metro (underground/subway) tunnels will be used by the jews to blow up town quarters. This was never done, not in two world wars, and even the worst terrorists strikes in London and Madrid were not able to do that. And if they were, it would not have been the Jews. :D

 

The king of the House David will soon be rule over Europe and the whole world. We are almost 100 years after the protocols were written (and more than 100 years after the event they alledgedly describe), but this king has never come up.

 

And mark you, according to the protocols Jews believe in monarchy and aristocracy, using democracy only as something other people should practice to stay weak. So if the everything in the protocols was predicted rightly, we should expect Saudi-Arabia to be a democracy and israel a monarchy.

 

Picking some predictions that came out, and leaving aside those that didn't come true changes the picture from "a random set of prediction came true" (which is what you expect in those cases) to "the pamphlet makes remarkable predictions". A trick done by clever propagandists, and it seems that you were victim of this propaganda. Or are you no victim, but aware of the fact that you are telling lies? I hope not!

 

So you saying the guy who wrote it was a Prophet who decided to lie and accuse the Jews?

A strange sort of prophet, who predicts the pope will be taken away his state, a prediction fulfilled in two steps in 1860 and 1870 (this a correction to the wrong dates I gave earlier - I looked into wikipedia since that). It was a prediction in 1864 when the original french satire was written (to be precise, the prophecy was about the government's reaction to it), but assuming a person predicting something about 1900 that happened decades ago is a prophet is :D :D

I'd love to discuss that but it's against this Forum's rules to discuss sects.

As far as I understand, it was no invitation to discuss sects, but a proposition to discuss a war. You can say much about the imminent shi'ite-sunnite war in Iraq without discussing sects.

 

For example, you may ask who wants such a war? The US administration? Iran? Saddam supporters? Al Qa'ida? or are these questions about "sects" icon14.gif
