What’s in it for Israel?

August 1, 2007

Israel, that blood-thirsty, war-mongering pustule of aggression in the Middle East, was one of the major cheerleaders for the invasion and occupation of Iraq. But what’s in it for them?

Obviously, anything that destablises other regimes in the region, and strengthens US and Israeli hegemony, is going to act in their favour.

But this article in Haaretz sheds another interesting clue: the US is investigating the construction of an oil pipeline from Kirkuk, Iraq, to Haifa, Israel:

The United States has asked Israel to check the possibility of pumping oil from Iraq to the oil refineries in Haifa. The request came in a telegram last week from a senior Pentagon official to a top Foreign Ministry official in Jerusalem.

The Prime Minister’s Office, which views the pipeline to Haifa as a “bonus” the U.S. could give to Israel in return for its unequivocal support for the American-led campaign in Iraq, had asked the Americans for the official telegram.

Once again, it’s all about stealing Iraqi oil, and the US is prepared to arm some of the worst regimes in the region to ensure control of the energy markets.

And if anyone out there is still not convinced of the utter depravity of Israel society, try this for size: a banner advertisement in Haaretz – a liberal newspaper by Israel standards – offering war tours of Israel.

Yes, that’s right folks – for just $2,185 (plus a tax free donation of at least $500) – you too can experience an “inside tour of the IAF unit who carries out targeted killings”.

That is sick.
