As Donald Trump often reminds people, he is the president of the United States, so why does he spend so much time and effort advancing a radical foreign agenda, namely that of Benjamin Netanyahu, the extreme right-wing leader of the state of Israel?
I don’t ask this question because I harbor any animosity for the president but out of serious concern that his actions and policies are serving a hostile and foreign power.
Zionism, the ideology of Jewish nationalism behind the state of Israel, is, after all, a foreign agenda. The fact that there are some 20 million Christian Zionists in the United States does not make Zionism any more American.
Donald Trump claims that his administration puts American interests first, but in the Middle East his actions and policies certainly do not benefit the United States in any meaningful way. Rather, Trump’s policies in the region are clearly designed to benefit a foreign nation, and only one nation – Israel. Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, openly stated that he directed Trump to impose sanctions on Iran and that he had also requested that the United States recognize the occupied Golan Heights as part of Israel. Although these actions put the U.S. in the position of supporting violations of international law, Trump fulfilled Netanyahu’s request on both.
Furthermore, Netanyahu is one of the key masterminds of the fraudulent War on Terror, which is now the longest and most expensive war in U.S. history. He is also deeply involved in the false-flag terrorism of 9/11, which is the event that made his pet project, the War on Terror, become operational. When asked by the New York Times about 9/11 on the day of the attacks, Netanyahu said it was “very good.”
What are Americans supposed to think when their president enacts illegal policies to serve the wishes of a foreign leader of such ill repute, especially one who is involved in the worst act of terrorism in U.S. history? President Trump has done everything to please Netanyahu and to advance his extreme Zionist agenda while completely ignoring America’s interests in the region. The sanctions against Iran, for example, have brought the United States to the brink of war, a situation that has been created completely by Trump’s servitude to the belligerent Benjamin Netanyahu and the Zionist extremists, like Sheldon Adelson, who support him. This raises the question: At what point does Trump’s subservience to the Israeli leader rise to the level of treason?
By accepting Israel’s illegal annexation of East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights Trump has blatantly disregarded international law.
Trump has cut off funding for the Palestinian refugee agency and is seeking to change the refugee status of millions of Palestinians in order to deprive them of their legal right to return to their homes.
Trump has promoted a bogus peace plan, managed by his son-in-law who is an ardent Zionist, to try and buy the Palestinian nation’s surrender to Israeli rule in all of historic Palestine.
During the summer of 2017, in Trump’s first year in office, the U.S. military waged “a war of annihilation” against ISIS in two cities, Mosul in Iraq and Raqqa in Syria. “Raqqa is the most destroyed city in modern times in terms of percentage,” Donatella Rovera, a crisis investigator in Raqqa for Amnesty International, said. The near total destruction of both cities is said to resemble that of Dresden in 1945.
So, why did the U.S. invade Syria illegally and lead the effort involving 67 nations to destroy Raqqa? What U.S. interest is served by destroying the cities of Raqqa and Mosul?
There is no U.S. interest in destroying Raqqa and Mosul. The devastation of these cities is part of a foreign agenda, an Israeli plan known as the Yinon Plan, named after the Israeli strategist who wrote it in the early 1980s, Oded Yinon. The Yinon Plan specifically calls for the dismemberment of Iraq and Syria, which is exactly the result of the U.S. intervention in these two nations.
Although Trump says he is opposed to the war in Syria, U.S. troops remain in the country where, with their Kurdish allies, they control about one-third of the nation in which the U.S. military has no legal right to be in the first place.
Trump appointed an Israeli dual-national, Sigal Mandelker, to manage the Treasury office that designs and applies the punishing sanctions that have been imposed on Iran. Trump has gone so far to say that Iran would face “obliteration” if the brutal economic sanctions were to lead to war.
In Afghanistan, Trump has continued the 18-year-old war and occupation policy of his predecessors in spite of the fact that he said it was “against his instinct” to do so. Trump has suggested on several occasions that he knows who is really behind the terror attacks of 9/11 that started the war in Afghanistan, indicating that he does not believe the official 9/11 myth. But, on this matter of profound importance, he has yet to reveal his thoughts. Why does Trump toy with 9/11 truth while continuing to wage the wars that followed in its wake? Who else but the real culprits, people like Benjamin Netanyahu, benefit from the 9/11 cover up?
If the president is supporting the deception of 9/11 and making policies and waging an extremely costly war based on the pack of lies about who carried out the terror atrocity, you can be sure we are not dealing with an honest character. Trump’s motto is “Make America Great Again” but the war in Afghanistan has cost the U.S. some $100 million per day for nearly 18 years. How does the war in Afghanistan make America great? If the money being wasted waging a senseless war in Central Asia were invested on the neglected U.S. infrastructure it would be a step in the right direction, but Trump has not taken that step.
While many Trump supporters believe that he is playing a deeper political game and is secretly working to fight corruption and “drain the swamp,” his actions during the first thirty months of his presidency indicate he is simply fulfilling the wishes of his radical Zionist donors, like Sheldon Adelson, a supporter of Netanyahu who has given Trump tens of millions of dollars. Adelson, who has donated at least $25 million to Donald Trump, publically called for the U.S. to drop a nuclear bomb on Iran to compel them to comply with Zionist dictates.
“I would put Adelson at the very top of the list of both access and influence in the Trump administration,” Craig Holman of the watchdog group Public Citizen said. “I’ve never seen anything like it before, and I’ve been studying money in politics for 40 years.”
If we consider the words of Matthew, “by their fruits ye shall know them,” we would have to conclude that Trump’s actions thus far have primarily been carried out in service to a radical Israeli agenda – not the people of the United States:
Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
– Matthew 7:16-18, King James Version
