A must read article from Zionism, topliner in Pakistan Daily:

Zionism: The Role of the US in Israel



( Long article with hardcore analysis in the ends conclusions... )


Israel’s supporters in the US should not be permitted to achieve their goal of igniting a clash of civilizations emanating from the region. Continuous war will not provide a tranquil place for the second coming of Christ, nor for justice, hope, and peace for the people of the region. The region needs a vision that values human dignity, equality, and justice for all, instead of aircrafts, bombs, and bullets.

- I think we all should carefully take learnings from movement called Zionism... Its matter of life and death.

Too bad the fundamentals of this topic are essentially "off the table" in all forms of "legitimate" media for a variety of reasons. Its the 3-billion-pound elephant in the room; the ultimate third rail.

Although I do not look forward to the possible growth in global dominance of "emerging" powers like the BRICs (Brazil-Russia-India-China), it is my hope that one knock-on effect from this will be a fairer, more equitable balance of power in the Middle East, as the Anglo-American power bloc is increasingly subject to balance-of-power maneuverings. Perhaps the US will even come under direct pressure from, say, China as a lending nation to "stand down" over Israel or another issue. If so, it will be our "Suez moment." This expression, as many of you will know, refers to the first time in the 1950s when the US used its status as a creditor nation (yes, believe it or not, the US was once a creditor, and, moreover, the world's biggest) to muscle over British intentions in the Suez, thus representing a fundamental shift in the global balance of power. This will happen eventually with China and the US, and a good contender for such a change would be possible pressure for a fairer situation in the Middle East. there are, of course, other, uglier possibilites, but one can at least entertain the vision that a more balanced world would bring balance to this troubled area.

The excessive favoritism towards Israel also hurts Israel, because it provides a cushion of false security that prevents it from grappling with long-term issues. For Israel, these include ways to make peace with their neighbors in a future where they will be dangerously demographically outnumbered and no longer able to hide behind the skirts of a decaying Anglo-US global order. Israel should be using this shrinking security blanket as an opportunity to lay the groundwork for long-term peace in the region; instead all indicators point to a stubborn, intransigent attitude rooted in a binary application of force and a linear, Manichean worldview. Such inflexibility can end well for nobody.
