Chomsky: Israel is heading for destruction

The US intellectual Noam Chomsky believes Israel’s appetite for war on Iran and the Gazans will eventually lead to self-destruction.

“I wrote decades ago that those who call themselves ‘supporters of Israel’ are in reality supporters of its moral degeneration and probable ultimate destruction,” the prominent linguist told CounterPunch.com in an interview.

“I have also believed for many years that Israel’s very clear choice of expansion over security, ever since it turned down [Egypt’s former President Muhammad Anwar] Sadat’s offer of a full peace treaty in 1971, may well lead to that consequence,” said the respected academician.

Chomsky made the remarks when asked by CounterPunch, ‘During the last few months, Israel has accentuated its attacks on Gaza and is talking of an imminent ground invasion. There is also a strong possibility that it is involved in the killing of the Hezbollah leader Mughniyeh and it is pushing for stronger sanctions (including military) on Iran. Do you believe that Israel’s appetite for war could eventually lead to its self-destruction?’

Replying to the same question, the historian Ilan Pappé, known for his anti-Zionist opinions and his analysis of Zionism in the colonial context, predicted that the Israeli regime would head to destruction, especially once the US withdrew its support.

“Yes, I think that the aggressiveness is increasing and Israel antagonizes not only the Palestinian world, but also the Arab and Islamic ones. The military balance of power, at present, is in Israel’s favor, but this can change at any given moment, especially once the US withdrew its support,” he opined.

The remarks come as Israeli deputy prime minister Shaoul Mofaz claimed on Friday that the Israeli regime would attack Iran should the country continue with its nuclear program.

A Glaring Preventive Tactic

 

The Lebanese resistance fighters’ actions purifying the capitol from para-military fighters and connected to Walid Jumblatt and the 14th of March Political Movement was Hizbollah’s second preventive strike against the complicated Ameircan-Israeli plans against Hizbollah. The public force of the resistance lead by Hizbollah surprised the hands that were at work after suspicious activity was seen and before it was too late for them to do anything. Capturing 800 para-military fighters made the plan of acting against the resistance from inside Beirut until the Mediterranean Sea unpractical. Some other actions that the popular resistance was able to do in 24 hours were blocking all roads leading to the airport, stopping the activities of some television, radio, and newspaper outlets (such as Al-Mustaqbal and al-Sharq). This confused the enemies’ plots. These measures occurred hours after Hizbollah’s Secretary-General’s speech and news conference where he laid it all out for the opposition who is in authority. The authorities who operate by Saudi Arabian money and who are representatives of America and Israel in Lebanon tried to destroy Hizbollah’s political, informational, and security strength in a few moves. If they were successful they would have been the groundwork for implementing America’s stratedgy of crippling Hizbollah.

About three months after Hajj Imad Mughniyeh’s, Hizbollah’s high commander, assassination which has been said to have been carried out by Jumblatt’s and Saudi Arabian security forces helped by Israeli spy agents, many accusations have been made against Hizbollah by Walid Jumblatt and newspapers connected to the 14th of March Political Movement. They tried to put public pressure on Hizbollah to disarm themselves. They claimed that Hizbollah, with the cooperation of Wafiq Shaqir (the head Beirut’s airport security), put video cameras around the airport in order to be able to control political figures movement and possible carry out assassinations. Another accusation was that Hizbollah overhears governmental phone conversations with their own phone system. The Siniora government, which is itself an illegal government, made a move by firing Shaqir and planned to cut Hizbollah’s phone system – which is a successful informational tool and one of the factor’s behind their victory in the 33-Day-War. Add this to the addition of American warships in Lebanese waters and the leakage of the American-Israeli plan to bomb Beirut and assassinate the leaders of the resistance including Sayyid Hassan Nasrullah.

 

Hizbollah is known in Beirut to be exclusive and because of this the authorities thought that they would be successful in a cold-war against them. They thought that they would be destroyed without war and without bloodshed. But, Hizbollah’s sudden move purifying Beirut and taking control of the country, which will probably end in Siniora’s resignation, shows that Sayyid Hassan Nasrullah and his people have completely surprised their enemies. Just as they did 2 years ago in the summer – shook up Israeli’s plans of a huge attack on Lebanon – they did it again now.

 

Sayyid Hassan Nasrullah once again showed that he is an ancestor of Ali bin Abi Talib (a)!
