THAT "VISION" THING
(The New World Order)
by Emanuel A. Winston
Secretary of State Colin Powell offered Israel his "Vision Thing". That expression was first introduced by George Herbert Walker Bush, when he was President, as his view of American foreign policy. Papa Bush's "Vision Thing" was the short war with Iraq, conducted by a pacifistic Head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Colin Powell, which allowed Saddam to stay in power. Papa Bush also introduced his "Vision Thing" called "The New World Order".
At the time, no one as exactly sure what he meant by this or what organization was behind this concept except that it dealt with continuing sources of energy (oil) and other commodities like food and water. (Some considered "The New World Order" a gathering of the self-serving world powers to control global resources as a non-fictionalized version of SMERSH in James Bond thriller.)
Regrettably, every time those who fit the profile of New World Orderists start their manipulations to control oil, etc, countries go into chaos; dictators receive lavish bribes and democracies cease to be.
This time the target is Israel. Secretary of State Colin Powell who has been severely criticized by Congress for his blatant double standard. 89 Senators wrote a letter November 16th, attacking Powell's criticism of Israel for attacking terrorists. Powell seems to be running on the "New World Order" track. That translates into appeasing the oil nations and the world of radical Islam. Some will recall the numerous times President Bush, Jr. apologized to Muslims, telling them that Americans were not at war with Islam.
While the President made these politically correct statements to his Muslim voter block, the leaders of Islam were saying the opposite: Islam is at war with America (who they did not hesitate to call the 'Great Satan' and Israel who they call the 'Little Satan'.)
Regrettably, we, the 'civilized', democratic Western world, are in a war with radical Islamism and have been for a long time. Islamism may be worse than Communism or Fascism in its collective goal for world domination. The radical Islamists state openly that they intend to bring a Khalifah (Muslim) State with the most strict Sharia laws to the whole world - by 'Jihad' (Holy War).
Powell and the U.S. State Department, to form a coalition against terrorism have chosen both terrorist nations and those who fund Islamic Terror as their partners in this coalition. In effect, this absolves such nations as Syria, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Libya, etc. from their crimes committed against humanity for their role in terrorist actions. How and why did America become partners and apologists for the very nations on the State Department list of Terrorist nations?
Now, Powell, speaking for the President is going to offer a revised Mitchell plan which is designed presumably to buy the economic cooperation of Arab Islam while sacrificing the existence of Israel. Powell will, no doubt, make use of the very unrealistic Mitchell Plan - minus the mandatory cessation of violence to be implemented by Yassir Arafat as required by the Mitchell Plan.
When Israel's Prime Minister Ariel (Arik) Sharon stated that Israel will not be used as a bargaining chip as was done with Czechoslovakia in 1938 at Munich, he was right on target. The planners at the U.S. State Department howled - denying that they were planning a Final Jewish Solution plan. Our President, like his father before him, feigned personal insult when Sharon opened a window on such a scurrilous betrayal of a friend and ally.
Let us not forget that the Bush-Baker Dynasties are so deeply attached to Arab oil and the multi-nationals that no sacrifice is too great to keep their pockets jingling. What motivates the Bush family and its oil cabal to use Israel as a sacrifice for gains which would only be temporary? To try slowing down the murderous intentions of radical Islam against America and the West in general by offering Israel to them is a futile betrayal.
It is unlikely that we will find the 'smoking gun' but, if we think of their activities as a "Black Hole" which itself cannot be seen, there are clues. Astro-physicists seem to be able to observe how the stars, planets - even light - can be sucked into the maw of a Black Hole which tells us that there is, indeed, a Black Power, at work.
Similarly, this political "Black Hole" is the foreign policy of successive Presidential Administrations and the objects that can be seen are those Presidents, the on-going U.S. State Department, Colin Powell, the multi-national oil corporations, the European nations, the Arab oil nations, the Arab terrorist supporting nations and Arafat's terrorist conglomerate, 'et al'. All of these entities can be seen, whirling around the Black Hole of U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East. Each is trying to push Israel into the vortex of the Black Hole so that she may disappear forever.
Recall that the prime contributors to President Bush's election campaign were the oil companies. Clearly, this is pay back time and Israel has been selected to pay the ultimate price.
What then is likely to happen from this point forward?
Powell has made a 'noble' speech November 19th, ignoring the daily terror facing Israel. Do not consider his empty words about the need for Arafat's compliance and a demand for his 100% effort. We have heard State Department 100% Double Talk before, which has always resulted only in 100% NON-compliance by Yassir Arafat. Nevertheless, each year since Oslo the State Department has whitewashed Arafat with their stamp of approval allowing the transfer of $100 million dollars to Arafat's deep pockets.
In a declaration that Israel must end her 'occupation' of the Palestinian territories in exchange for security guarantees, Powell has nailed up his greatest lie. Any historian or even a fifth grade child knows that American Presidents and the U.S. State Department, in appeasement to Arab oil Sheiks, have not enforced any of these so-called guarantees to agreements which they co-signed.
This is specifically true with respect to demanding compliance by Yassir Arafat and/or the Arab nations. After each of the six wars initiated by the Arabs against Israel, the U.S. and the Europeans have stopped Israel from finishing those wars. In each case, they concocted a hodge-podge of language wherein they put their signatures on a document 'guaranteeing' Israel's security and concurrently saved the aggressive Arab countries from their ignominious defeats. When these agreements were all broken by the Arab nations, the terrorists and/or Yassir Arafat, the U.S. State Department rejected Israel's demands that they, the guarantors, intervene.
While the American people and the American Congress can be trusted to support Israel as a genuine friend and worthy strategic ally in the Middle East, the various Presidential Administrations and the U.S. State Department have proven time and again that they are liars and untrustworthy guarantors of any such agreements they co-signed supporting Israel's security and sovereignty. These are not trivial lies because, when you prove that your own signature on such an international agreement is valueless, who can ever rely upon your guarantees of security or your signatures on any international agreements?
Colin Powell, in his speech of perfidy November 19th, chose to ignore that Israel acquired territory in wars she did not start. In each war of planned annihilation of the Jewish State, the Arabs gambled away territory they themselves had received as partitioned land the West had won from the Ottoman Empire. This land is, therefore, not "occupied" by Israel but rather is owed to Israel and owned by Israel by having won a defensive war.
These rights of the Jewish people to the Land of Israel are recognized by the 1917 British Balfour Declaration, the League of Nations Mandate (precursor to the U.N.), ratified by the American Congress; the U.N. resolution of1947;Israel's admittance to the U.N. in 1949 and the recognition of Israel by most other states. The Jewish people maintained ties to their historic homeland for more than 3,700 years, as well as her capital, Jerusalem. (1)
The demand by Secretary of State Colin Powell on November 19th emanates out of the notoriously anti-Israel U.S. State Department. The Mitchell Report recommendations, flowing through the voice of Powell, is absurd on the face of it. Yassir Arafat has never once kept any agreement made with Israel, or any Arab country, specifically those made with King Hussein of Jordan or the State of Lebanon. Arafat's only consistency has been non-stop terror. He did keep his word to Saddam Hussein when he used the 350,000 Palestinians working in Kuwait to subvert their host government. For leading Saddam's troops to the Kuwaiti treasures and homes of the leaders, after the Gulf War those 350,000 Palestinians were evicted into Jordan - as were the 300,000 Palestinians then living and working in Saudi Arabia. Those two Arab countries rightly viewed the Palestinians as a dangerous and subversive fifth column - as should Israel and the United States. When it comes to terror and other evils subverting whatever state has given him sanctuary, Arafat has always kept his M.O. (Modus Operandi).
The Black Hole of State Department foreign policy and all of their fellow travelers of the oil Mafia know that, no matter what Arafat signs, and, no matter what is countersigned by this Bush/Powell Administration, the Europeans and the U.N. not one word is likely to be kept. The betrayal is now in the oven, only waiting for Israel to be savaged into signing it. ###
