Last September, Donald Trump and Benjamin Netanyahu hinted that they were working on a mutual defense pact. Such a treaty, if signed, would officially and permanently mandate an American military intervention if Israel were to ever start a conflict with its neighbors.

The Trump administration is desperate to get this done, but Netanyahu is having trouble selling the idea to his rival Benny Gantz. The Likud party has so far been unable to form a government and Netanyahu is battling corruption charges. As a side note, two major GOP donors, Sheldon Adelson and Larry Ellison, are defense witnesses in Bibi’s case.

The major reason why some sectors of the Israeli state want Netanyahu gone is that they believe his government’s belligerence is responsible for Iran’s stunning rise. Netanyahu has chosen Israel-above-all unilateralism using Zion’s cats-paws in Washington to try and bully Tehran, but have walked all over Chinese and Russian interests in the process.

Two years into the Trump/Israel “maximum pressure” campaign, Iran is not only more powerful than before, it is participating in joint war games with China and Russia. This has angered competing Jewish factions inside Israel, who preferred the Obama method of passively subverting Iran through its countries pro-US/pro-Europe “moderate” liberal reformists. Hassan Rouhani, who they saw as the Persian “Gorbachev,” has now been fully discredited in the eyes of his people thanks to Trump and Netanyahu.

While all segments of Israeli society are having a public debate on the pros and cons of a military pact for their country, here in the US nobody has consulted with the 1.3 million active-duty American servicemen who will die in a world war to expand Israel’s borders.

JINSA’s Plan

Lindsay Graham has told Jews at private events that he is working on this bill and is confident it will be ratified in the Senate. So far, the only people within US borders participating in this conversation are the Republican Jewish Coalition and JINSA (Jewish Institute for National Security of America). The latter fifth column is writing the terms of the treaty.

Last July, JINSA released details of the pact they want Graham to push through, titled “For a Narrow US-Israel Defense Pact,” which can be obtained online (I will not link to downloads on JINSA’s website for security reasons).

The policy paper demands that Israel be granted special access to intelligence collected by the “Five Eyes Alliance” (Australia, UK, New Zealand, Canada and the US), officially turning the entire Anglo-Saxon world into a global Jewish spy network (which is already unofficially true).

Furthermore, it calls on the war clause be triggered if any country “threatens” to use chemical of nuclear weapons against the Jewish state or physically undermines Israel’s economic activities. This is very open-ended.

The most ludicrous part of the Graham/JINSA’s treaty is section 3.4, where Israel is under no obligation to notify or seek approval from the United States when it decides to engage in a military attack against another party.

In other words, if Israel decides to start a war with Iran (or China, or Russia, or all of them), it doesn’t have to discuss this with its “ally” first. Israel reserves its right to act unilaterally and America must go along for the ride whether we want to or not.

America gets absolutely nothing from joining such an agreement, except the possibility of a catastrophic world war that can be started by unstable psychopaths like Benjamin Netanyahu without warning, whenever they please.

The US has not signed a mutual defense treaty since 1962.

It’s time the 98% start demanding Donald Trump and Lindsey Graham include us in this debate, and prepare to protest as soon as this bill hits the Senate floor.

  1. The policy paper demands that Israel be granted special access to intelligence collected by the “Five Eyes Alliance” (Australia, UK, New Zealand, Canada and the US), officially turning the entire Anglo-Saxon world into a global Jewish spy network (which is already unofficially true).

    Israel should be cut off from any intelligence sharing from the Anglo-Saxon nations and their electronic intelligence gathering apparatus.

    Israel must be quarantined and isolated immediately. Israel is a millstone client state of the American Empire.

    The US military is being used as muscle to fight wars on behalf of Israel in the Middle East and West Asia.

    The Republican Party Neo-Conservatives push for war for Israel.

    The Democrat Party humanitarian interventionists push for war for Israel.

    Where is the patriot who will put AMERICA FIRST by disregarding the constant warmongering for Israel of the neo-conservatives and the humanitarian interventionists?

    Israel already has America in it’s back pocket. What more do they want/expect?

  3. Gall says:

    America forming an entangling alliance with the apartheid, parasitical, terrorist state of Israel that is salivating like a mad dog with rabbis (pun intended) to nuke Iran and most of Europe under their Samson Option. I mean what could possibly go wrong?

    Don’t you all just love being Israel’s 51st state!

    Every time Trump starts fellating Israel, Andrew Anglin calls him a kikesucker. 😀 😀

    Well you can see who they are and how well they have fared. E.g. Chuck Percy, Pat Buchanan, Joe Sobran, now Tulsi Gabbard indirectly via her skepticism of mideast interventions.

    IMO the key to opening up a space for criticism of Israel is to foster advocacy by American and English Muslims. But most Israel-phobes also hate Muslims and blacks and so they end up spluttering impotently until at length they die.

    They don’t deserve to succeed.

    The entire “pact” debate is symbolism over substance.

    There will not be a new treaty between the U.S. & Israel. The Senate cannot even ratify the new trade deal with massive employment gains on the line (1).

    White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) should pass the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) instead of pursuing a “Seinfeld impeachment” about nothing. … one of the biggest casualties so far … has been USMCA. The opportunity cost of not passing that is about 200,000 jobs ….

    Any “pact” driven by executive authority will end when Trump leaves office. Much like Barack Hussein’s executive actions ended with his administration.

    Thus, the substantive impact of any non-treaty deal is effectively nil.

    PEACE 😇

    Israel is a millstone client state of the American Empire.

    You got it all it all wrong, it is the US who is the client state of the Israel global financial empire. Your entire political, financial and social systems are infested and controlled by a foreign and yet also domestic power that views everyone who is not a jew as trash.

    All of the trillions wasted every year on the 1000 of unspoken off US military bases and outposts with their troops and weapons exist solely to ensure that the global jewish financial empire can continue to plunder the planet at will.

    The never-ending battle between “Zionism in One Country” and “Permanent Semitism.”

    Oy vey.

    Elections in America have become as unreal as any Golem, the Jew coup in DC proves it. You can buy any color Model T you like so long as it’s black.

    No Brainer. Get out of ME, and leave Israel to fend for themselves. Watch the gas prices drop and terrorism dissipate since the Mossad will be too busy defending their state from within, and not trying to get the Golems of the West to do their dirty work
