In reality my friend, the people, that is the average person on the street in most Arab nations, engaged in that ages old religious division would
likely like to see Israel destoyed.
However the leadership of the oil producing companies are no dumbies, and they realize that they benefit immensely from the tension that turned oil
and gasoline from a cheap pennies per gallon commodity up until the First and Second Arab Oil Embargos of the 1970's into something that right now
sells for 100.00 plus a barrel and a gallon at the pump as much as 4.00 instead of the average .18 cents it was.
Every time someone in Israel or Iran comes out and rattles sabres for the press the price shoots back up higher, so most Arab leaders of oil producing
nations only go so far as to posture through funding some splinter groups so they can maintain some credibility with their deeply religious and much
poorer populations who often have nothing but religion to sustain them, that Israel's existence is an afront to God or the Palestinians.
So in other words the leaders of the oil producing Arab nations all profit all the way to the bank because of the tension Israel creates.
As do all the oil companies. It's why Israel is funded and armed out the wing wang.
It's real good for the oil business, and I think you now know after watching BP sink a huge amount of oil into the Gulf of Mexico with dangerous
toxic chemicals that there is nothing that the Oil Companies won't stoop too that's good for business.
When Israel was first founded, CIA papers now available under the Freedom of Information Act clearly display a hostile relationship between the U.S.
and the fledgling Israeli State between 1946 to 1952.
The concern was what it might do to distrubt the flow of oil, and Israel was considered to be our number one threat to a prosperous America run on
Right around the time of Operation Ajax the installation of the pro-West Shah of Iran we suddenly overnight did a huge about face where the security
of Israel became our national priority.
So in other words once a Persian, non-Arab source of oil to run our mechanized infrastructure was obtained, we realized a benefit to driving up the
price of oil through supporting Israel and the conflict Israel created of by and large European Refugees stealing a piece of land they held no title
or legal claim too began to cause jitters in the oil markets.
When I say we, I mean Esso, Gulf Western, Shell, BP, Texaco and Sunoco.
Around the same period the Arab oil fields began nationalizing and getting much larger percentages of the profit.
Originally the 7 big oil companies set the price at the source, with the Arabs getting on average 8 to 10% per barrel so the lower the oil companies
fixed the price at the source the less amount of money the Arab owners would actually get.
However by the 1970's most of those old sweet heart deals were gone and when OPEC was formed on the heals of the Second Arab Oil Embargo, oil became
a spot market commidity where the market, supply and demand determined the price, and not the Oil companies themselves.
The Arabs started getting a lot richer, and yeah they figured out the more tension with Israel the more money they make in jittery markets.
In reality there has been no significant attack on Israel in almost 40 years now, accept by the groups in Palestine who's lands are constantly being
stollen through a slow war of attrition meant to cause instability and create a profit, or in cases where they have grabbed buffer zones in other
countries like Lebanon where splinter groups like Hezbollah have worked to drive them back out, and harrass them from time to time to try to keep them
from expanding their borders.
The truth is the average Israeli hates Muslims with a passion, the average Muslim hates Israelis with a passion.
That has as much to do with their religions (both sides) than it does to do with Palestinian issues.
The leaders have to pay lip service to it, but the truth is any combination of three large Arab States could destroy Israel, the CIA presumed the only
large Arab State with a leader who might try would be Saddam Hussein hence the multiple accidents Iraq has had over the last 20 plus years.
With out a Saudi Arabia, Egypt or Iraq stepping in to lead such an assault the smaller nations won't join in.
Egypt was bought off at Camp David, the Saudis make too much money off of Israel, and Saddam Hussein has been removed after destroying the Middle
East's largest army piece meal through proxy wars with Iran, multiple military actions and embargos.
The good news is we all live in a world where the will of the people is ignored by it's governments, the bad news is we all live in a world where the
will of the people is ignored by it's governments.
Yet the truth remains that Israel has broken every accord it ever signed from the British Mandate on and conspired constantly to do so, and it's made
up primarily of European Refugees and economic Refugees from the old Soviet Bloc.
The 10,000 some odd Jews who never went into Diaspora got along with the Arabs for the better part of 2,000 years.
Don't even get me started on the manipulations of the Balfour Declaration in World War I and the bankers who manipulated the war to get the Balfour
Declaration and set the stage though their shennanigans to bankrupt both Germany and the United States.
Israel is bad news period, and in reality most of the worlds Jews don't want to live there because only their Messiah can lead them back there.
Miami Beach where I live is full of illegal Israeli immigrants who come over on Tourist Visas and never want to go back to the place, they will more
or less do anything not too, which is why just to keep it running they have to allow multiple citizenship.
So we get creeps like Chertoff and Rahm Emanuel too high up in our government that manipulate the phony war on terror to help our own government strip
Americans of their rights and freedoms so if we ever wake up from the ether and the propaganda there is little we can do to undo this mess.
It was a sad day for peace and the people of the world when the International Banking Cartel restablished Israel, not God, and they have been making
money off of the turmoil it's caused ever since, and we have all been paying for it ever since.
Yet amazingly the propaganda is so good that Americans don't even blink an eye at having the nation with one of the highest per capita income levels
in the world, being the number one recipient of American financial aide.
Politically correct is in fact not correct, and a real review of history and the real players pretty much displays why.
