Revanchist Israel Bent on Territorial Expansion
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org - Home - Stephen Lendman)
Israel is the only nation without official borders. From inception it was planned this way to extrajudicially annex more territory.
A territorial expansion plan was drawn up in the 1980s as part of the US/Israel plan to redraw the Middle East map to their advantage, wanting subservient puppet regimes installed in partitioned Syria, Lebanon, Iran, and other Arab countries.
In 2006, Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya wrote about "(t)he (US-Israeli) Project for a New Middle East."
Their objectives remain unchanged, including the creation of "arc of instability, chaos, and violence extending from Lebanon, Palestine, and Syria to Iraq, the Persian Gulf, Iran, and borders of" Central Asia and North Africa.
Endless US-led NATO wars rage in this broader region, no end of them in prospect. Beginning weeks after 9/11, what followed was well planned in advance.
The mother of all false flags launched Washington's escalated imperial agenda in this oil and other resource-rich part of the world.
US forever wars are part of its divide, conquer and control strategy, the human cost of no consequence. Israel shares the same objective regionally that Washington aims for worldwide.
In 1982, Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs senior advisor Oded Yinon published a document for regional conquest and dominance — titled "A Strategy for Israel in the 1980s."
Israel Shahak (1933 - 2001) published a translated/edited version titled "The Zionist Plan for the Middle East."
It's considered the most explicit, detailed statement of Zionist rage for redrawing the Middle East map to serve Israeli interests.
Its two essential premises include the following:
To survive, Israel must dominate the region and become a world power.
Achieving its imperial aims requires dividing Arab nations into small, easily controlled states – partitioning them along ethnic and sectarian lines as weakened Israeli satellites.
According to Yinon, "(t)he existence, prosperity and steadfastness of (Israel) depend(s) upon its ability to adopt a new framework for its domestic and foreign affairs," based on securing its material needs through winnable resource wars and Arab world divisions.
"All the Arab States east of Israel are torn apart, broken up and riddled with inner conflicts even more than those of the Maghreb" (Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Mauritania, and Western Sahara)."
Gulf states are "built upon a delicate house of sand in which there is only oil." Jordan is in reality Palestine, Amman the same as Nablus.
Other regional states are similar, including Egypt, Iran, Turkey, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and others.
The US, NATO, Israeli scheme is all about creating endless regional violence and chaos, exploited to their advantage for gaining control over regional nations and their valued resources.
In 1948, Israel stole 78% of historic Palestine, siezing the rest in June 1967, including Jerusalem, a UN-designated international city the US and Israel consider the exclusive Jewish state capital, no matter how contrary to international law.
Israel illegally occupies most all valued West Bank land and Jerusalem. It always aimed for maximum Jews and minimum Arabs throughout historic Palestine.
On Friday, UN Special Rapporteur for human rights in Occupied Palestine Michael Lynk said actions of the Jewish state "occupying power (are) bent on further (illegal) territorial annexation."
During a visit to Amman, Jordan, the Netanyahu regime denied him permission to enter Occupied Palestine.
My earlier articles about Israel/Palestine explained the following:
Occupied Palestinians live in limbo, controlled by a repressive foreign army and a system of institutionalized and codified racism.
They're denied self-determination, the right of citizenship, and control over their daily lives, what's fundamental for all free socities.
Living in a constant state of fear, they suffer from economic strangulation, collective punishment, denial of free movement and expression, along with enduring virtually every form of indignity, degradation, and crime against humanity imaginable.
Their population centers are isolated from each other for easier control and theft of their land.
They endure curfews, roadblocks, checkpoints, electric fences, other barriers, mass arrests, imprisonments, torture, separation walls, bulldozed homes, and targeted killings.
Their fundamental rights affirmed under international law are denied by oppressive Israeli regimes, ruling by what Edward Said called "refined viciousness."
They're punished by inadequate or denied vital services, punitive taxes, regular neighborhood incursions, land, sea and air attacks, imprisonment of lawmakers for belonging to the wrong party, ethnic cleansing, and slow-motion genocide for praying to the wrong God.
Challenging Israeli authority verbally, in writing, or by peaceful demonstrations risks arrest, injury, or death.
Israel is to Palestinians what Nazi Germany was to Jews, slow-motion extermination compared to industrial scale.
Two million besieged Gazans endure the world's largest open-air prison, an entire population enduring mass suffocation.
Lynk slammed the Netanyahu regime for failing to fulfill its "obligations as a UN member to cooperate fully with Experts of the United Nations."
He expressed special concern for Gazans, enduring protracted humanitarian crisis conditions enforced by Israel.
"Palestinians seeking redress through the Israeli legal system face a multitude of obstacles such that ultimately, justice is elusive and largely impossible to obtain," he stressed, adding:
"Israel's conduct of the 52-year-old occupation is an affront to modern international law."
"The United Nations has stated on numerous occasions that the Israeli settlements are illegal, its annexation of East Jerusalem is unlawful, and its violations of the human rights of the Palestinians breach international covenants and treaties."
"Now is the time for the international community to hold Israel fully accountable for its actions, and to determine whether (its) role as the occupying power has crossed the bright red line into illegality."
There's no ambiguity about Israeli high crimes of war and against humanity, its vicious persecution of defenseless Palestinians.
Yet the world community has done nothing to hold the Jewish state accountable, nothing to seek redress for the Palestinian people.
As long as Israel has US support, it'll continue getting away with mass murder and a whole lot more. They'll be no end to Palestinian suffering.
Fulfillment of Netanyahu's campaign pledge to annex illegal settlements if implemented will be the latest Israeli affront to their fundamental rights.
Israel has never been held accountable for "its prolonged occupation, annexation and defiance of international (laws, norms, and standards) with respect to settlements, the separation wall, and collective punishment," said Lynk.
Nor is it likely ahead unless international tribunals fulfill their obligations to hold serial lawbreaker Israel and its officials accountable for their high crimes.
