Israel Shamir – The Unz Review June 9, 2019
If the Jews have designs for world dominance, their plans had suffered a setback due to the petty rivalry of Israeli politicians. Now this minor setback threatens to upset the whole master plan. For the want of a nail the kingdom is lost. A small mistake can have great consequences; so said Eugene Scribe of a glass of water that it had ended too long a war.
‘The minor setback’ was the failure of Bibi Netanyahu to form his new government after successful election campaign. ‘The great consequences’ are the collapse of the ambitious Kushner/Trump’s Deal of the Century. Russia’s alliance with Israel looks less certain; and beyond that, the coronation of Messiah, the Jewish king and the world’s foremost spiritual authority seems to be postponed indefinitely. Like in domino effect, these plans began to fail, one after another.
Speaking to the nation of Israel in dramatic broadcast and acknowledging his defeat, after the Knesset (the Israeli Parliament) had dissolved itself at Netanyahu’s insistence, the Eternal Leader Benjamin Netanyahu revealed the plans of the Trilateral Meeting of Russia, the US and Israel’s security supremoes in Jerusalem. The White House confirmed it, too. This unprecedented meeting was supposed to become Netanyahu’s great achievement, crowning his nth re-election and confirming his international status.
Symbolically, this meeting would signify a special standing of Israel with the two superpowers; Israel’s unique ability to bring forth the mutually hostile Russia and America, like the tamer who leads a lion and a tiger to the arena. Even for our profane and sober age, such a meeting means a lot, a lot more than we would like to think of.
In the Middle Ages, when people had fewer reservations in delving into the esoteric, the supposed agenda for the grand masters of leading Christian orders meeting their heathen counterpart, say the Old Man of the Mountain, in Jerusalem (of all places!) would definitely include kissing Baphomet’s anus. Such a meeting with the Jew would imply their desire to crown the Antichrist. In both cases, they would end at the stake in front of Notre-Dame-de-Paris, as Jacques de Molay did.
And if the medieval man would learn of the recent arson of the venerated cathedral, he would consider the case closed, even for the most ardent sceptic. Clearly the turncoat knights, heirs to the Templars, attempted to establish the eternal Jewish dominion over Christians, a Christian sage would say; while his Jewish contemporary would hail the meeting as a prefiguration of the forthcoming advent of the Shepherd-King to lead the people of Israel and the obedient Gentiles.
Nowadays, in the age of rationality and hate laws, such hurtful assessments are forbidden, but our souls are old-fashioned Jungians and they still interpret thunder and lightning as a sign from above. The symbols have a meaning and carry a message, whether we like it or not. If you are conditioned to reject any spiritual interpretation, think of NLP, Neuro-Linguistic Programming of the Bible, the book you and your parents and grandparents had been exposed to. “A meeting in Jerusalem” are trigger words, not only to believers, but also to all-denying crass materialists. In plain words, prophecies we are aware of tend to be self-fulfilling.
The messianic expectations run high in Jerusalem. A few days ago, when the Israeli Jerusalem Day (the anniversary of the city’s conquest in 1967) coincided with Muslim Laylat al-Qadr (the most importkushant feast at the end of Ramadan), the Jews went to the courtyard of al-Aqsa Mosque to pray there. Usually Jews aren’t allowed to enter the courtyard in the last week of Ramadan. After skirmishes, Israeli soldiers raided the Mosque. “Hopefully soon, we will pray there, in our sacred place”, said Miri Regev, a religious Zionist and a popular minister of culture in Netanyahu’s government. These words were understood in expectation of the Mosque’s takeover, its destruction and erection of the Jewish temple in its stead.
The Trilateral Meeting fits very well into the scheme of these expectations. Open public meeting of this unprecedented sort will be interpreted as the superpowers’ support for the takeover and of the Gentile submission. The US representative at the meeting is Mr John Bolton, a zealous Zionist, a man obsessed with his adoration of Jews, who is likely to say anything to please his Israeli audience. He is known to have a serious influence on President Trump, and he had been described as his ‘minder’, selected by the spooks to control the flamboyant President.
The Russian representative is Mr Nikolai Patrushev, an old friend of Mr Putin. He inherited the top position in the Russian Intelligence (FSB) after Putin had left it to begin his ascent to the Presidency. He is considered a dull man of limited vision and imagination who usually reads his speeches verbatim. He is not known for improvising, fast thinking or negotiating abilities. This is good. An improviser can be carried away when it is the last thing that is needed. Patrushev will stick to the script, his colleagues say. In the Russian Foreign Office, the diplomats are unhappy with the choice, but they would be unhappy with anybody who is not a career diplomat.
Israelis guess and hope the meeting could lead to major re-alliance of Russia, to Moscow’s shifting to the Israeli-US side against Iran. This is extremely unlikely. Russia is friendly to Israel, and it wants to make friends with the US, while observing its own national interests.
Last week, at ‘Russian Davos’, St Petersburg Economic Forum, President Putin reiterated the main points of his memorable Munich Speech. He voiced seven complaints leaving no doubt he is unhappy with American heavy-handedness, with the US attempts to weaponise the dollar, Google, Facebook and knowhow as in case of Huawei. “States that previously advocated the principles of freedom of trade, fair and open competition, started speaking the language of trade wars and sanctions, blatant economic raiding, arm twisting, intimidation, eliminating competitors by so-called non-market methods,” – he said. This is not the language of a man who waits for a cue to join the US entourage.
Still, there are other, less pleasant signs.
The ‘Russian Bolton’, Mr Eugene Satanovsky, the head of pro-Israeli think tank, a former head of a Zionist Jewish body and a frequent commentator on Russian TV had been appointed an adviser to the Russian Defence Minister Mr Sergey Shoygu. His nomination came directly from Kremlin and surprised the ministry officials.
A prominent Russian churchman, Fr Chaplin, expressed his satisfaction with Israeli control of Jerusalem, in a column in the Nezavisimaya Gazeta.
At the same time, the Russian S-300 did not respond to Israeli bombing runs in Syria.
