Open Letter to President Obama – Yes, You Could.

Dear President Obama,

In the teeth of Zionist lobby opposition, your decision to give veteran diplomat Charles W. Freeman the responsibility for producing the National Intelligence Estimate adds substance to the case for believing that you really do want to prevent this lobby from determining (more or less) your foreign policy agenda as it relates to ending the Israel-Palestine conflict and, beyond that, winning what your predecessor called “the war against global terrorism”. The world, and not least the Jews of the world, needs you to be successful in this effort. In my assessment your chances of success will be greatly improved if you are prepared to look one Great Truth in the face. It is that Israel’s political and military leaders are not interested (and never have been) in peace on any terms the vast majority of Palestinians and most other Arabs and Muslims everywhere could accept.

I emphasized leaders in the sentence above to indicate my belief that, for policy making purposes, a distinction must be made between Israel’s leaders and most if not all of the Jewish citizens of Israel, the voters. A related Great Truth is that they, too, have been brainwashed by Zionist propaganda. I mean that it was not only the mainly Gentile Judeo-Christian or Western world that was conditioned by Zionism’s spin doctors to believe that poor little Israel has lived in constant danger of annihilation – the “driving into the sea” of its Jews. The Jews of Israel were also fed the same propaganda nonsense by their leaders.

As I document in my book, Zionism: The Real Enemy of the Jews, (the American edition of Volume One is being published by Clarity Press in April with the sub-title The False Messiah), Israel’s existence has never, ever, been in danger from any combination of Arab military force. Not in 1948. Not in 1956. Not in 1967. And not even in 1973. Zionism’s assertion to the contrary was the cover that allowed Israel to get away where it mattered most, in America and Western Europe, with presenting its aggression as self-defense and itself as the victim when actually it was, and is, the oppressor.

Since you, Mr. President, are unlikely to have the time to read my book (even if you had the inclination), I’d like you to be aware of one tiny fragment of its substance. It’s at the end of the Prologue to Volume One which is titled Waiting for the Apocalypse. I quote from a conversation I had in 1980 with then retired Major General Shlomo Gazit, the best and the brightest of Israel’s Directors of Military Intelligence. Over coffee one morning when I was the linkman in a secret, exploratory dialogue between Shimon Peres and Yasser Arafat, I took a very deep breath and said to Shlomo: “I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s all a myth. Israel’s existence has never, ever, been in danger.” Through a sad smile, he replied, “The trouble with us Israelis is that we’ve become the victims of our own propaganda.” Later I tell my readers there were times during the writing of the book when the Gentile me wanted to cry out with the pain of knowing how much the Jews of Israel (as well as the Jews of the world) have been deceived by their leaders.

In my assessment there is not a snowball’s chance in hell of solving the Palestine problem, curing the cancer at the heart of international affairs before it consumes us all, unless and until enough Israelis, by definition a majority of them, are assisted to understand that peace based on justice for the Palestinians and security for all Jews now living in Israel-Palestine is there for the taking. If they could be convinced of that, there would, surely, be a good chance of them insisting that their deluded leaders make peace not war without end.

The question arising is what could you do, Mr. President, to arrange things to give most if not all Jews in Israel-Palestine good reason to believe that peace based on security for them and an acceptable amount of justice for the Palestinians is available?
