Klein Online: Obama trying to unseat Israeli leader? Country’s ‘social protests’ may be engineered for regime change.
Aaron Klein, September 14, 2011
JERUSALEM – Is President Obama attempting to unseat Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and replace him with a leftist Israeli leader who largely tows the president’s Mideast line?
There are indications the so-called social protests rocking Israel were engineered for that very purpose.
According to an investigative report in Israel’s Maariv’s newspaper, the country’s protests were engineered by a group of media strategists directed by prominent Democratic strategist Stanley Greenberg, a former adviser to Bill Clinton, John Kerry and others.
Greenberg reportedly is working with Israeli strategists who were behind left-wing leader Ehud Barak’s successful race for prime minister in 1999. Greenberg himself helped to run Barak’s campaign.
Barak is currently the Defense Minister in a coalition government with Netanyahu.
Last week, KleinOnline reported Greenberg previously ran the campaign of Bolivia’s former president, who was ushered into office amid escalating social protests in that country....
As far fetched as the engineering of Israeli regime change, at the hands of external forces, may sound to some, it would not surprise me in the least.
Aaron Klein does a nice job putting the pieces of this puzzle together.
The housing protests were the greatest MISSED opportunity for unity among diverse groups of Jews in Israel. Yet, the protests were hijacked by the Left, and most religious Jews, of all flavors, were kept out.
"Social Justice" (צדק חברתי) is a well know buzz word of the so-called Reform Movement in the U. S. This hijacking was confirmed by Reform Movement in Israel banners on Rothschild Street in Tel-Aviv. Yet, the reference goes right over the heads of native Israelis.
They have clearly been duped. After all, why would anyone have anything against "social justice?" I certainly wouldn't,...if I were ignorant of the Left's underlying agenda.
And now, Aaron Klein seems to have uncovered something even more nefarious.
The only thing I am not sure I agree with Klein about is who is controlling whom.
Is President Obama the real force behind attempts to manipulate the Israeli government? Or is President Obama being manipulated into carrying out the secret plans of others, such as Leftist American Jews or Defense Minister Ehud Baraq?
Time and time again, Obama has shown himself to be not brightest crayon in the box, more of a "burnt umber" than a "fire station red."
True, regime change could be desirable for the U. S., and it could be using the European Union-backed, Israeli Left as its tool.
But, something else runs deeper here, the threat of those who see Torah as a higher authority than the anti-Torah controlled government. This is the greatest threat in the eyes of the Israel government. The government, whether, Likud, Labor, or Kadima, has been running scared for quite some time now. The real population war in the government's eyes is not between Jews and Arabs; it is between secular and religious.
When religious Jews eventually significantly outnumber those who are guided by the anti-Torah elements who are truly in control of the government, those elements will have no choice but to be increasingly overt in their struggle to remain in power.
Israeli "regime change" is only a temporal marker, a link in a chain of events, to which we should all be paying attention.
Hopefully, now that people like Klein have brought this possibility to the surface, we will not be surprised when it happens.
Unfortunately, I am not optimistic.
Nothing seems to break through the naivete of most of my "Religious Zionist" brethren. I fear that they will be blindsided, and end up being the first to suffer from the overt struggles of the powers that be to remain in control.
Besides, anyone paying attention to Israeli politics for the past 20 years will have have noticed that, so far, the end results of a Likud, Labor, or Kadima government have all been the same. Labor may not have given away the Land which Likud and Kadima have, but it was always there to set the stage, and to work behind the scenes to make sure that the systematic destruction of [potential] Jewish control over the Land of Israel continues on course.
Well, Aaron, it was worth a shot.
