How Israel took Lebanon
by Henk Ruyssenaars
FPF - 06-03-2005 - Whether you read the New York Times, or the 'Pocatello Idaho State Journal' online*, they - like almost all media in the United States and it's vassal states - will have the same story from the United States information service 'Associated Press', concerning the speech in the Syrian parliament by it's president Beshir al Assad. And globally the 'Newspeak' caption for the next days reads: "Syria Sidesteps Troop Pullout Demand". Which is neocon information by AP's reporter Bassam Mroue. And you are lied to as usual.
Because you are not supposed to know what I have seen and reported on as a correspondent (also for the BBC) for ten years in the area: that Syria is in fact an under-cover ally of the US, or at least her intelligence services. Like Jordan where the late king Hussein officially was on the CIA's payroll as an 'adviser', or like president Mubarak, the US 'puppet on a string' in Egypt. Take 7 November 1987 coup general and president Zine El Abedine Ben Ali, the ruler of Tunisia. With the biggest Middle East CIA arabic training center in coastal Sidi Bou Said, 17 kilometers from the capital Tunis. The 'school' is next door to the US ambassadors residence.

Morocco - like Mauritania - has already for decades been cooperating with the american secret services. Putting up 'dishes' for the NSA's 'tapping' services and relaying to the BBC's monitoring. Syria is one of those countries where detainees - illegally seized by American agents - are 'rendered'; meaning tortured. And most informed observers and players for the Middle East power, meaning oil and water, know that Syria is in no way able to make some kind of honest 'deal', whatever the Lion's son roars about in the docile Syrian parliament.
They are faced with the Israeli threat of remote controlled nuclear neutron land mines everywhere in the Golan Heights, which can be activated or detonated at any time the Israeli Defense Force feels like. It's a deadly mix of the suicidal Masada complex* and Seymour Hersh's 'Samson Option'.*
In the run up to the first Gulf War US president Bush senior phoned the late Hafez al Assad, the president of Syria a.k.a. the 'Lion of Damascus'. Asking him for military support. While al Assad's 'advisor' - standing next to him - was wringing his hands, Hafez al Assad promised to do whatever President Bush number 1 asked: Soldiers, planes, ammunition, all seemed to be available to the Americans. The devastated 'advisor' asked Assad: "How could you? Why didn't you at least agree on a price, and ask where to send the bill?'
Hafez al Assad gave the same answer as yesterday his son gave to the Syrian 'parliament' in Damascus: "We'll negotiate the price when they want us to pull out again". Anybody in the Arab world will understand what the 'Lion of Damascus' and his son are trying to explain: "Are you trying again to take me for a ride? I'll tell you the cost of the ticket later on."
For the moment and pending a possible investigation, it's quite obvious that Israel's and the Strauss neocons in Washington are the only ones profiting from the latest turmoil. [http://tinyurl.com/4rlqt] Which will be celebrated soon, when Israel's PM Ariel Sharon visits Washington again. Knowing that by most people in the Arab World, Israel and it's secret service Mossad etc. is rightly blamed for sending Lebanese billionaire Hariri to his forefathers. Let's hope to the smoky hills of the Bekaa valley with it's beautiful and tasty buffets, the 'Mesa's'.
Who profits ?
Nobody else, apart from Israel, seems to profit from the bombing of Lebanese tycoon Rafiq Harari: on the contrary. For Syria it's a disaster, this betrayal by the bombers. They would never commit a geopolitical Hara Kiri by killing Hariri.
But the syrian government has no choice since the Jerusalem Post's sister paper, the 'New York Times' proudly on October 20 - 1991* published: "Israel has hundreds of tactical and strategic nuclear weapons, including more than 100 nuclear artillery shells, and [remotely controlled] nuclear land mines in the Golan Heights and hundreds of low yield neutron warheads." Confirming what the american/israeli Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Seymour Hersh* had written earlier in his book "The Samson Option."
When the Bushıs administration gave Israel the go-ahead to attack Syria in retaliation to another Tel Aviv bombing that took place last weekend, killing 5 Israelis, the Hebrew daily Yediot Ahronotı reported that - according to the still more reliable news service al Jazeera*: " the Israeli ambassador to Washington discussed with a senior U.S. official intelligence information obtained by the Israeli intelligence service, claiming that Jihad Resistance Movement had masterminded the Tel Aviv blast from inside Damascus. Also, the U.S. didn't ask Tel Aviv to exercise 'self restraint', as in past cases vis-à-vis the Palestinian commando raids, the newspaper added."
Syria: a free fire zone?
None of the Newspeak people, the dish bitches, or the few real journalists covering the press conference in Syria's capital Damascus - which was relayed live by the Syrian TV to the Arab countries, Europeans, CNN, FOX & Fakes like 'EURO-News' - (same clan): none of them asked the question: why is Israel taking Lebanon? Is this all a part of the greater Hebrew state 'Eretz Israel'?
Politically it looks like this: Syria may be withdrawing at it's own leisure (but dictated from Washington) from the Cedar heights of Lebanon to the pot filled 'Bekaa Valley' and the Israeli 'Sheeba Farms': they just collaborate. They have no choice whatsoever, or they're dead.
And the reason why, as Seymour Hersh described it,
is called the Samson Option, and it's lethal to you too.
In Hebrew it's called 'Masada'.
TV station al Jazeera is put up for sale through an american bureau,
and will probably within months be sold to something like FOX or CNN:

He who travels far will often see things
Far removed from what he believed was the Truth.
When he talks about it in the fields at home,
He is often accused of lying,
For the obdurate people will not believe
Inexperience, I believe,
Will give little credence to my song.
