Israel PM Olmert brags about ordering Bush around
By James Edwards
Ehud Olmert, the Prime Minister of Israel, is boasting to his fellow Israelis about how much control Israel has over “our” government:
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has said that US Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice was left “embarrassed” after President George W Bush ordered her to abstain from a UN vote on Gaza war, which she herself had prepared and organised.
Speaking in the southern Israeli city of Ashkelon, which has come under rocket attacks during the last 17 days, Olmert took pride in narrating how Bush intervened in the matter at his request.
“Early Friday morning [Israel time], the secretary of state was considering bringing the ceasefire resolution to a UNSC vote and we didn’t want her to vote for it. Suddenly, within ten minutes it became clear that, the vote was going ahead”, the Israeli premier recounted.
“I [called the White House and] said, ‘Get President Bush on the phone.’ They tried, and told me that he was in the middle of a lecture in Philadelphia. I said, ‘I’m not interested, I need to speak to him now”, he said.
“He (Bush)got down from the podium, went out and took the phone call. I told him that the US cannot possibly vote in favour of this resolution. He immediately called the secretary of state and told her not to vote for it. She was left quite embarrassed,” he narrated.
Well, yeah, I guess he would “take pride” in telling this story. Of course, the Bush White House is denying this, calling the story completely untrue. But nobody believes it, except maybe FOX News viewers.
And this is nothing new. Jews regularly boast that they control “our” government. Here’s what Ari Shavit, one of Israel’s most respected pundits, wrote a while back. It appeared in an Israeli newspaper back in 1996, after Israel had killed over a hundred civilians in Lebanon.
We killed them out of a certain naive hubris. Believing with absolute certitude that now, with the White House, the Senate, and much of the American media in our hands, the lives of others do not count as much as our own….”
It was also in Haaretz, a prominent Jewish newspaper, where Shavit bragged that the war on Iraq was created by 25-30 people, almost all of them Jews.
And a Jewish writer for the LA Times recently boasted that Jews control not only the entertainment and news media in America, but also “Wall Street” and “the government” to boot.
I have never been so upset by a poll in my life. Only 22% of Americans now believe “the movie and television industries are pretty much run by Jews,” down from nearly 50% in 1964. The Anti-Defamation League, which released the poll results last month, sees in these numbers a victory against stereotyping. Actually, it just shows how dumb America has gotten. Jews totally run Hollywood.
But I don’t care if Americans think we’re running the news media, Hollywood, Wall Street or the government. I just care that we get to keep running them.
We’re all supposed to not even notice it, and God forbid we should talk about it, or we’re Nazis. But Jews are allowed to not only say these things, they can brag about them while rubbing our faces in it.
While all these liberals and progressives run around screaming No War For Oil, and the conservatives run around parroting They Hate Us For Our Freedoms, Jews are laughing in our face. They know why we’re over in Iraq, and it’s not because of 9/11 or oil. It’s because of Israel. Thousands of American kids have died for Israel, not this country.
And if you think it’s bad now, it’s going to be even worse after Obama takes office. He’s appointed Rahm Emanuel as chief of staff. Emanuel is an “American” citizen who ducked fighting the first Iraq war on America’s side, and instead was a civilian volunteer for the Israeli military, which sat out the war, just like they did this one. He’s going to be calling the shots in the White House, as everyone knows. Obama couldn’t run a Waffle House, let alone the White House. Emanuel will be the real president, and whatever Israel wants Israel will get. Obama will just be there to fool Americans into thinking that they still control “America’s” government, and to take the blame when Israel drags us into another fiasco like Iraq.
