Martin van Creveld, professor of military history at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem as quoted in an article by David Hirst and

published in the Observer on Sunday September 21, 2003: 'We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets for our air force. Let me quote General Moshe Dayan: “Israel must be like a mad dog, too dangerous to bother.” I consider it all hopeless at this point. We shall have to try to prevent things from coming to that, if at all possible. Our armed forces, however, are not the thirtieth strongest in the world, but rather the second or third. We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that that will happen before Israel goes under.’ After seeing your article 'The Hand That Feeds the Fire; Behind The Crisis: How Iran is wielding its influence to wage a stealthy war against Israel and USA”(http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/13881857/site/newsweek/), I am once again convinced of the propaganda tactics of neocons and the powerful Israeli lobby in DC(most notably the AIPAC).I will give the Israeli's credit, they are no fools; they are survivors. Thousands of years of persecution can do that. And over the decades they have perfected, among other things, the art of public brainwashing through vigorous propaganda. The media truly is one of the greatest tools in selling lies. It is of little doubt that the major news providers in the United States are owned by wealthy Jews or under the heavy influence of them. Newsweek is no exception. Of course even the devil must have a nemesis. Slowly but surely Americans are waking up to the reality, of the deceit and lies that have been sold to them, of the "wars on Terror" that are being fought in their name, of the Billions that are being spent against their National interests. But for the few that know, it is of course a perilous journey to convincing the masses of the true nature of 'Big Brother’. Professors John J.Mearsheimer and Stephan Walt are some of the few people who have managed to ‘unplug’, if you will, from the Matrix of Israeli control on Washington DC and the American media. After making public their findings "The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy," they have been made outcasts. Further insight into the current developments in the middle east can be also made from "A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm," prepared by a group of ProIsraeli Americans in 1996 for the then Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that proposed a strategy of regime change as the only solution for Israel's growing encirclement and isolation. Under the pretext of avenging the "kidnapping" of their soldiers – they have unleashed a military assault planned well in advance of the allegedly precipitating incidents. This is surely one of the most dimwitted excuses for a war ever uttered. One wonders how Israel's spokesmen can say it with a straight face. One also wonders how conveniently the Media fails to bring to light the many UN Resolutions Israel has refused to comply when it quotes on the calls by the Israeli Government to the UNSC to enforce its Resolution 1559 on Syria which, passed in September 2004, called for the disbanding and disarmament of Hezbollah. This despite the fact that up till 1992 alone more than 60 Resolutions have been passed against Israel, none of which they have complied with yet alone acknowledged.

I am sure this mail will do no more than raise an eyebrow or two in your office. But it’ll have to do; if it means that I have let you all in Newsweek know that there are people out there who don’t buy the lies and propaganda you sell, then its something. Cheers
