Benjamin Netanyahu won the election by rallying and galvanizing the most extremist elements of Israeli society. Eyewitnesses have attested to the reality of the religious Zionist current and its role in the election. "A week ago I was in Rabin Square for a rally by the Netanyahu forces, and they were terrifying," writes Philip Weiss on March 23rd. "The people I met in the street said racist and foolish things about Arabs, both Netanyahu and Naftali Bennett made religious statements bordering on lunacy about the Jewish right to the land."
Netanyahu knows he can do whatever he wants, due to the full complicity of the same U.S. Congress which adulates him whenever he appears before them. Its unprecedented that a body elected by their constituents to uphold the sovereign laws of the U.S., will assume such a self-deprecating posture towards the leader of a foreign country, giving him more standing ovations than they give even to the President of their own country! The whole rabble from both political parties have generally sold out lock, stock and barrel to AIPAC. They are eager to receive their "master" Netanyahu whenever he graces his underlings with his presence. A former AIPAC member has exposed the game:
"On all matters relating to Israel and the Middle East in general, AIPAC writes the legislation (or letters, resolutions, etc.) which are then handed over to legislators to drop in the hopper, gather cosponsors, and get it passed or sent. Not only that, the ideas for these initiatives come out of AIPAC rather than (as is usually the case with lobbies) starting with the Member of Congress who then asks the lobby for help with drafting. AIPAC does it all, from soup to nuts." (MJ Rosenberg, "How We Know AIPAC Wrote The GOP’s 'Treason' Letter To Iran," March 9, 2015).
Netanyahu: Master of Deception
"Bibi" Netanyahu is a master of deception, who has a PhD. in deceiving the world with his policies and intentions, knowing full well that much of the world's media and governments will be complicit through their silence. He has been leading a propaganda campaign to drum up support against Iran, speaking about an inflated threat which even the Mossad discounts as exaggerated and fabricated. He has been working overtime, exploiting the international environment after 9/11 to Israel's benefit.
Netanyahu is reaping the fruits from a long record of lies and propaganda that dates back even before the founding of Israel. From the time when he was still the Israeli ambassador to the United Nations, it was Netanyahu who led a propaganda campaign against UN Secretary-General (and later President of Austria) Kurt Waldheim, defaming him since Waldheim criticized Israel's invasion of Lebanon and atrocities against Palestinians and Lebanese. As former Mossad agent Victor Ostrovsky writes:
"There was growing dissatisfaction in the Mossad and in the right-wing elements of the Israeli government regarding the behavior of Chancellor Helmut Kohl, who was defying direct Israeli warnings regarding his relationship with the Austrian leader Kurt Waldheim, who'd been branded a Nazi. (The branding was done by a field unity of Al that entered a UN building on Park Avenue South in New York and placed several incriminating documents that had been removed from other files into Waldheim’s file and the files of a few other individuals-for future use. The falsified documents were then 'discovered' by Israel’s ambassador to the UN, Benjamin Netanyahu, as part of a smear campaign against Waldheim, who was critical of Israeli activities in southern Lebanon.)" (Victor Ostrovsky, The Other Side of Deception: A Rogue Agent Exposes the Mossad's Secret Agenda, New York: HarperCollins, 1994, pp. 228-229).

"A Clean Break"
Netanyahu was Prime Minister when a group of American Neocons led by Richard Perle presented him with a policy document in 1996. Entitled "A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm," it foreshadowed certain policies pursued by the same individuals who would later become the leading architects of the Iraq War. Let us be clear what this was: A group of American citizens collectively calling themselves "Neoconservatives," operate think-tanks and among themselves write up a document which they present to a foreign head of state.
Most of the proposals have already been followed, foremost being the overthrow of Saddam Hussein, an action which was greeted by many Israelis as "This war is for us!" However, other proposals shed light on the ongoing devastation in Syria. As part of the "containment" of Syria, it advocates stirring up civil war within that country through the use of proxies.
Now, with Israeli Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi's curious statement that "God has sent ISIS against nations that want to destroy Israel," we can connect the dots between the 1996 Clean Break document, the modern ISIS/Daesh terror in Syria and Iraq, and Netanyahu's reaction to 9/11 and the Iraq war: "We are benefiting from one thing, and that is the attack on the Twin Towers and the Pentagon, and the American struggle in Iraq."

Netanyahu steals nuclear triggers from U.S.
As I documented in my earlier article, "Nuking 'Amalek'?", Israel is a nuclear-armed state which has not signed any anti-proliferation treaties. It is one whose leaders have frequently invoked the threat of nuclear weapons to strike fear into its neighbors and to blackmail its "allies" into giving into its every whim and demand. There is a certain hate ideology behind this entire debate, and it is one that can be easily discerned not only by Netanyahu's actions but also by looking at his friends and connections - a topic for a future blog post.
On July 27, 2012, the FBI partially declassified and released documents pertaining to its 1985-2002 investigation into the activities of Richard Kelly Smyth, who was convicted of running a U.S. front company that illegally smuggled nuclear triggers out of the U.S. into Israel. Through his contact, the Hollywood director Arnon Milchan, Smyth was put in contact with Netanyahu, who then worked at Heli Trading Company. According to the FBI report, "Smyth and [Netanyahu] would meet in restaurants in Tel Aviv and in [Netanyahu’s] home and/or business. It was not uncommon for [Netanyahu] to ask Smyth for unclassified material."
How has Netanyahu reacted to the revelations? As noted by the authors of a book on the subject, "Hollywood mega-producer and former secret agent Arnon Milchan has been asked directly by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Shimon Peres to avoid any public discussion of the book Confidential, asserting that the matter is too sensitive at this time." Given the dictates of his war-propaganda, it should be little surprise Netanyahu would want nothing more than to sweep his inconvenient record of lies, deception and crimes against the U.S. under the rug!
