Panetta to Netanyahu: ‘Israel may not survive the current Arab/Islamic awakening’

BEIRUT — Three weeks after being named by President Obama in January 2009 as the 19th Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and during his first day on the job on February 12, 2009, Leon Panetta, now US Secretary of Defense, signed off on a March 2009 “eyes only” CIA Report that had just been completed by his new agency.

As reported at the time, the CIA Report predicted the demise of Israel within 20 years, if present political trends in the region continued. The CIA intelligence analysts concluded that it was unlikely that Israeli leaders would grant even minimal concessions in order to achieve a settlement with their neighbors, which comprise increasingly disillusioned and rapidly growing dignity and justice seeking populations.

The CIA Report noted that Israeli officials felt emboldened in taking Palestinian land by the myriad support Israel was receiving from the leadership of Egypt, Tunisia, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Jordan and three other Arab leaders.

Israel and its two most powerful US lobbies, the US Congress and AIPAC, quickly squelched the 2009 Report and only seven copies were eventually acknowledged, one by AIPAC and the others by staffers of select supporters of Israel on key Congressional Committees.

During last week’s meetings with Israeli officials, both sides knew that the 2009 CIA study was front and center even without Panetta being the first one to refer to it.

President Obama sent Panetta to engage in frank discussions which included the White House displeasure at Netanyahu’s repeated humiliation of the President over the past 18 months and Israeli threats to cut off Jewish aid to Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign.

Panetta did deliver public statements which allowed Netanyahu to put the best hasbara face on the meetings and he thanked the US Secretary of Defense for “helping to improve US-Israeli relations.”

Panetta repeated at a news conference with his Israeli counterpart, Defense Minister Ehud Barak some pointed generalizations. “At this dramatic time in the Middle East, when there have been so many changes, it’s not a good situation for Israel to become increasingly isolated. And that is what’s happening,” he said.

“There’s not much question in my mind that they maintain that (military) edge. But the question you have to ask he added is: was it enough to maintain a military edge, if you’re isolating yourself in the diplomatic arena? At this dramatic time in the Middle East, when there have been so many changes, it’s not a good situation for Israel to become increasingly isolated. And that is what’s happening,” he said.

In private, according to Washington sources, the atmosphere was quite different. Panetta reportedly made plain that given recent changes among Middle East countries, meaning the Arab Spring and Islamic Awakening, Israel was quickly running out of time. Its only choice was to make peace with the Palestinians and her neighbors or perish.

During frank and sometimes heated exchanges, Panetta told the Israelis that time is running out for a two state solution, which means time is running out for Zionist Israel and that similar to apartheid South Africa, following the Reagan years, the days of American propping up of Israel are coming to a close.

Seemingly dwelling on the subject of the US being unable to continue funding Israel in real terms with more than $6 billion every year and being able to continue to guarantee Israel’s Qualitative Military Edge (QME), Panetta told the Israelis that it was out of the question given American domestic problems and the US process of substantial, if partial, disengagement from the region.

At issue with the American inability and increasing unwillingness to prop up Israel’s QME is the innocuous sounding 2008 Naval Vessel Transfer Act shepherded through the Congress a month before the 2008 US Presidential election by one of Israel’s unwavering lobbyists, Rep. Howard Berman.

In its essence, this law shackles every American president with a legal obligation to ensure that Israel maintains its military dominance over the Middle East.

It is designed to assure that Israel’s regional hegemony is legally mandated via Israel’s “Qualitative Military Edge”. The US Government must guarantee that “the sale or export of the defense articles or defense services will not adversely affect Israel’s qualitative military edge over any military threats to Israel.”

The term ‘qualitative military edge’ means the ability to counter and defeat any credible conventional military threat from any individual state or possible coalition of states or from non-state actors, while sustaining minimal damages and casualties, through the use of superior military means, possessed in sufficient quantity, including weapons, command, control, communication, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance capabilities that in their technical characteristics are superior in capability to those of such other individual or possible coalition of states or non-state actors.

Panetta reportedly reminded Ehud Barak, during heated discussions between the two defense ministers of the statement of an Egyptian general back 1973 as reported by then President Nixon. According to Nixon, an Israeli official asked an Egyptian general convalescing in hospital, “We have defeated you Arabs three times (1948, 1967 & 1973) why to you continue to resist us?” The Egyptian replied, “You may have defeated us three times, and you may defeat us 11 times. But the 12th time we will win and Palestine will be liberated.”

The unavoidable signs seen by Panetta, as by his predecessor, Defense Secretary Robert Gates, include nearly one dozen uprisings in the region that share the goal, among others, of returning Palestine to its rightful inhabitants.

The Egyptian people are reclaiming Egypt’s proud Arab position and helping lead the cause to liberate Palestine as evidenced by their intentions to expel the Israeli Embassy, scrap Camp David, abrogate the capitulation agreements, including Egypt’s natural gas giveaway to Israel subsidized by the Egyptian people, and made by the Mubarak family doing business with Israeli officials. Panetta and an increasingly number of American officials as well as the American public know that the genie has been released and that Arabs, Muslims, and all people of good will continue to inexorably confront the remaining 19th Century colonial enterprise which is the artificial and illegitimate Zionist implantation on Palestinian land.

      Israel has contributed more to the world culture and science than the entire Arab world combined, and worse off- this kind of comments remind every Israeli, even left wing peace loving socialist like me, why there is Israel and what likely will happen to the Jews without it.

    This isn’t research, this is all misinformation. What CIA paper? Cite it if it is real. What is written here is pure fiction. Prove me wrong, because you sure haven’t done so here. According to authoritative sources with close contact to Leon Panetta, the conversations were about defense cooperation with both sides agreeing that military and intelligence cooperation has never been closer and that Israel and the US want to continue to improve their ties. Neither yet knows what the result of the Arab uprisings will bring and both want to continue to work together. Panetta, as the new Sec. of Defence, and Barak quietly discussed how the military can increase cooperation as the CIA and the Mossad did while Panetta was director of the CIA. With Panetta at the helm, ties will only get stronger. Israel and the US, including Netanyahu and Obama, have become a lot closer with the advent of the Arab Spring.
    Obama, Panetta and the American public and all people of good will know that the legitimacy of Israel as the nation state of the Jewish people is sacrosanct. The Palestinian people must give up the fantasy of a “right of return” to Israel and accept the historical ties of the Jewish nation to the land in order for Palestine to become a nation. Panetta discussed the fact that the Palestinian attempt to skirt negotiations at the UN will be defeated in the Security Counsel by vote likely without the US having to exercise a veto. Obama is furious with Abbas. Abbas’ efforts at the UN and failure to sit at the table with Netanyahu to make peace are in fact disastrous to the Palestinian people. Obama relayed through Panetta that the US commitment to Israel’s security and Israel’s qualitative edge is unwavering and will continue to grow.

      ISAAC A : What a bunch of zionist propaganda, garbage , Are you a descendant of Hebrew or a Khazar ? 98% of Zionists who built “Jewish only” settlements and “outposts” on confiscated Palestinian land or Americans who call themselves “Jews” are descendants of Eastern Europeans from the old Khazar Empire who CONVERTED to Judaism around AD 740 AND HAVE NO ANCESTRAL LINK TO THE JEWS OF PALESTINE. SO YOU SHOULD GIVE UP THE FANTASY OF “RIGHT TO RETURN TO THE PROMISE LAND” BASED ON A MYTH financed by the ROTHSCHILDS . When Khazaria was destroyed by Gengis Khan the Khazars who converted to Judaism moved to what is today Russia, Poland , Hungary Germany and that where they are from…. ZIONISM IS NOT JUDAISM , This concept of a “Jewish Only” State was created by Theodore Herzl around 1886 he was a racist and a typical Colonialist of his time. EVEN HISTORY IS NOT ON THE ZIONIST SIDE : Way before the Hebrews first migrated there around 1800 BC the Land was occupied by CANAANITES .
      Doctor Ronny Reich and Eli Shuikrun directed excavations in Jerusalem and it was discovered that the City and its water system attributed to the conquering Israelites PRE-DATED them by EIGHT CENTURIES it was built by Canaanites in the middle Bronze Period , around 1800 BCE (ref: Jewish Bulletin July 31st 1998) Arab invaders made most of Canaanites Moslem converts….SORRY you are wrong again and it is well documented (not by your local Rabi of course)
      The extended Kingdoms of David and Solomon ,on which the Zionists base their territorial demands ,endured for only about 73 years …Then it fell apart, even if we allow independence to the entire life of the ancient Jewish kingdoms from David’s conquest of Canaan in 1000 B.C to the wiping out of Judah in 586 B C we arrive at ONLY a 414 year Jewish rule ( Illene Beaty “Arab and Jew in the Land of Canaan”.)
      Another Zionist MYTH is that the U.N created Israel and that the World establishment supported it. IN REALITY while the U.N General assembly recommended the creation of a Jewish State in part of Palestine that recommendation was non-binding and NEVER IMPLEMENTED BY THE SECURITY COUNCIL . For more details Every body should read the following
      (Available on Google or others) : “THE REAL STORY OF HOW ISRAEL WAS CREATED” by Alison Weir. And you will discover the BIG ZIONIST LIE.
      It is time for the world to find out that Zionists exploit the Holocaust for political gain and the “Anti Semitism card” to discredit any body who dare to criticize Israel and the crimes they are committing against the Palestinian people it is ETHNIC CLEANSING pure and simple, When you read GARBAGE like : “THE LEGITIMACY OF ISRAEL AS A NATION STATE OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE IS SACROSANCT” it is time to expose fundamentalism for what it is This is the root cause of the war we have in the Middle East for the past 60 years, It is well documented that the Irgun and LEHI soldiers (Zionist army) exterminated Palestinian villagers like Der Yassin on April 9, 1948 (including the raping of Arab women) in the name of this “SACROSANCT” Myth.
      They are willing to throw the United States and the rest of the world under the bus or Nuke them if they have to, just to maintain the “JEWISH ONLY” State which is not even built or Governed by descendants of Hebrews , Names like Rosenberg, Wolfowitz, Goldberg Rosenthal of fake name like Rothschild WERE NEVER HEBREW NAMES but Easter European names (German Polish Russian or Hungarian)
      Who can tell the difference between “The God Chosen People” and the “Master Race” As late as 1941 the Zionist group LEHI,one of whose leaders,Yitzhak Shamir, was later to become a prime minister of the Apartheid State of Israel,approached the Nazis using the name of its parent organization,the Irgun (NMO) the proposal stated: “THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE HISTORICAL JEWISH STATE ON A NATIONAL AND TOTALITARIAN Pd BOUND BY A TREATY WITH THE GERMAN REICH , THE NMO IN PALESTINE OFFERS TO TAKE AN ACTIVE PART IN THE WAR ON NAZI GERMANY’S SIDE”
      ALL documents are available at the “Washington Report on Middle Eastern Affairs” by Allan Bloomfield July/August 1998
      ISRAEL WAS NEVER A DEMOCRACY IT HAS NO CONSTITUTION, ISRAEL HAS MORE THAN 200 NUCLEAR MISSILES IN VIOLATION OF INTERNATIONAL LAWS, my uncle did work for the French company who built DIMONA in 1958.
      Under the Symington amendment to the 1961 Foreign appropriations bill the United States is BANNED from sending aid to any Nation with nuclear weapons who has not signed the Non Proliferation Treaty (NTP) ISRAEL always refused to sign it (unlike IRAN) therefore the $3.5 BILLION a year of US foreign aid to Israel is ILLEGAL, AIPAC (Israeli lobby in the US) is in violation of the Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA) , its founder Si Kenen did register with the US Department of Justice under the FARA as an employee of the American Zionist Committee for Public Affair.
      The most recent CIA report on countries spying on the US, shows ISRAEL in FIRST position followed by China. ( Google search this Title: ISRAELI ESPIONAGE IN THE US 1948 – 2010 )
      Also the largest Jewish community in the Middle East beside Israel is in IRAN
      showing the Hypocrisy of the Zionist State trying to push the US to Bomb Iran for years knowing perfectly that thousands of Iranian Jews are going to die in the process , the same lies about WMD’s used on Iraq are now used on IRAN, The ” Israel wipe off the map” is a lie based on a miss translation from farsi language Ahmadinejad said “this Zionist regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time” REGIME CHANGE ! Folks, NOT DESTRUCTION OF THE COUNTRY, Many Americans wanted BUSH OUT and now they want OBAMA OUT…not the USA wiped off the map…That is how deceiving and vicious the Zionist propaganda against targeted Muslim countries is.
      Ahmadinejad NEVER denied the Holocaust he simply question the 6 Million figure considering that this SIX Million was based on 4.5 Million killed in Auschwitz, However for anybody who visited the Auschwitz camp, I did, can see the Commemorative plate showing ONE Million and half SO WHY THE ZIONIST STILL KEEP SIX MILLIONS, that is a legitimate question…
      Must read “A clean Break a new Strategy for securing the realm”
      ” The Zionist Plan for the Middle East” by Israel Shahak
      ” The Thirteenth Tribe , The Khazar Empire and its heritage” by Arthur Koestler . Jewish writer and Holocaust survivor who reveal the REAL origin of Eastern European “Jews” ( he was himself)

        Full of shit KKK and Muslim Propaganda all disproved years ago and with the latest DNA testing we debunked this old conspiracy once and for all.

        We are Jews, Israelites the Hebrews of the Book.

        We do not need your approval hiding behind this so you can openly spread your Racism.

        The funniest thing is More than 60% of the Jews today in Israel are descendants of “Mizrahi Jews”-Jews that had been forcibly expelled and deprived of all there property and possessions as refugees from ISLAMIC countries after Israel’s 1948 War of Independence!

        Place your KKK – Muslim Propaganda in the Toilet.

        The Arabs from Arabia will not steal our Heritage.

          ELI
          YOUR COMMENT IS REAL ZIONIST GARBAGE PLEASE LEARN THAT ZIONISM (BORN IN 1886) IS NOT JUDAISM THE JEWISH CULTURE AND RELIGION CAN AND WILL SURVIVE WITHOUT THE RACIST COLONIALIST ZIONIST POLICIES OF THE APARTHEID STATE OF ISRAEL (READ MY COMMENT PRECEDING YOURS AND WELL DOCUMENTED REFERENCES ALL FROM JEWISH WRITERS NOT KKK)
          DNA TESTING ??? WHAT A JOKE !
          SINCE WHEN ROSENBAUM , GOLDBERG GOLDMAN, STRAUSS LEBOWITZ SPLIBERG etc ARE HEBREW NAMES ??? A DNA TEST WILL PROVE BEYONG ANY DOUBT THAT THEY ARE EASTERN EUROPEANS NOT FROM THE MIDDLE EAST AND THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH IT UNLESS THEY CLAIM THAT PALESTINE IS THEIRS AND LOCALS MUST GO WHILE USING BULLDOZERS AND THE IDF MILITARY MACHINE TO PUSH THEM AWAY AND SOMETIME EXTERMINATE THEM…I HAVE FRIENDS IN THE IDF I KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT… ONLY THE NAZIS THOUGHT THAT THERE WAS SUCH A THING AS A “JEWISH RACE” OBVIOUSLY YOU ARE SUBSCRIBING TO THEIR IDIOTIC CONCEPT…
          THERE IS NO “JEWISH RACE” BUT A CULTURE AND A RELIGION WHO DOESN’T NEED ZIONISM TO EXIST ONLY A ZIONIST IDIOT WOULD USE NAME CALLING (KKK ANTI SEMITE) WITHOUT BRINGING ANY DOCUMENTATION TO SUBSTANTIATE HIS POSITION AND RIDICULOUS RACIST VUE OF THE WORLD AGAINST PEOPLE WHO EXPOSE THE POLICIES OF THE STATE OF ISRAEL …YOU ARE CONFUSING THE RACIST ZIONIST ISRAELI GOVERNMENT WITH THE ENTIRE JEWISH COMMUNITY….I DON’T… UNLIKE YOU I MAKE A DISTINCTION BETWEEN A GOVERNMENT CONTROLLED BY A ZIONIST ELITE AND ALL ITS PEOPLE BUT OBVIOUSLY YOUR LIMITED EDUCATION ON GENERAL WORLD HISTORY AND INTELLECT SEEMS NOT TO MAKE THAT DISTINCTION. EDUCATE YOURSELF IN READING THE “THIRTEENTH TRIBE THE KHAZAR EMPIRE AND ITS HERITAGE” BY THE GRAET JEWISH WRITER ARTHUR KOSTLER A EASTERN EUROPEAN “JEW” HIMSELF AND HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR IT DEMONSTRATES THAT EATERN EUROPEAN JEWS ARE DESCENDANTS OF KHAZARS (Ashkenazi) AND ARE NOT DESCENDANTS OF THE 12 HEBREW TRIBES ARTHUR KOSTLER WAS IN CONCENTRATION CAMP IN FRANCE WITH MY UNCLE AND SURVIVED… HARDLY A KKK OR ANTI SEMITE. Keep your insults for yourself this is NOT a LIKUD gathering.
          Indigenous Jews descendants of the original Hebrew tribes living in Palestine, sharing peacefully the land with Arabs for centuries WERE AGAINST THE CREATION OF A “JEWISH ONLY” State and it is well documented that the rest of these Hebrew tribes indeed moved all over ….the Middle East in many Muslim countries all the way to Spain (Sephardic Jews) The largest Jewish population in the Middle East, beside Israel, is in IRAN…Ironically those who decided to move to Israel (controlled by converted Easter European Rothschild Zionists settlers) are treated like second class citizens by European settlers… (they are Middle Eastern looking….like Arabs)
          ZIONISM = RACISM it is very well documented. LEVI IF YOU READ MY PREVIOUS COMMENT, GIVE US THE PROOF THAT ISRAEL IS NOT IN VIOLATION OF THE SYMINGTON AMENDMENT, GIVE US OR TELL US WHERE WE CAN FIND THE UNITED NATION DOCUMENT SHOWING THAT THE CREATION OF THE STATE OF ISRAEL WAS IMPLEMENTED BY THE SECURITY COUNCIL, GIVE US THE PROOF THAT ISRAEL HAS NO NUCLEAR WEAPON IF NOT NAME ONE MUSLIM COUNTRY WHO HAS MORE NUCLEAR MISSILES AND BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS THAN ISRAEL….I HAVE 800 PAGES OF CIA DECLASSIFY DOCUMENTS AND DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE LAWSUIT SHOWING THAT ISRAEL SPY ON THE UNITED STATES SINCE 1948 AND ALSO CONDUCT FALSE FLAG TERRORIST ATTACKS BLAMED ON ARABS TO PUSH THE UNITED STATES AGAINST MUSLIM COUNTRIES AND MAINTAIN A CONSTANT “WAR ON TERROR” …TO ANY BODY WHO WANT TO DO SERIOUS RESEARCH CHECK : “THE LAVON AFFAIR” (wikipedia or Google) .THE USS LIBERTY ATTACK (OPERATION CYANIDE)
          The Arabs (especially the Palestinians who have NO ARMY) have never been a match for the US supplied Israeli WAR MACHINE. ($3.5 Billion a year) The Irony of the “LAW OF RETURN” is that the majority of today’s “Jews” have NO DIRECT ancestral link to the Jews of the old testament they are KHAZARS, Eastern Europeans who converted to Judaism around 800 AD, The Khazars were NEVER from Palestine. THE BRUTAL AND CRIMINAL CIRCUMSTANCE SURROUNDING THE CREATION OF ISRAEL MUST BE EXPOSED.
          We SHOULD NEVER FORGET THE VICTIM OF NAZISM, WE SHOULD NEVER FORGET THE VICTIM OF ZIONISM.

          EDUCATE YOURSELF : http://www.ifamericansknew.org
          Peace
          Because war is a racket and Israel is making a living out of it for the past sixty years.

        • Felipe

          Levi, what the DNA shows is that Jewish people are related to other Middle Eastern peoples and so a Middle Eastern origin is very likely. It does not prove that Jews are descended from the Biblical Israelites. Remember that the in the book of Esther, many of the people of the land (non-Israelites) became Jews for fear of the Jews. Also remember that the first century Jewish historian Josephus recorded how that the Idumeans, that is, the descendents of Esau, were forcibly circumcised in the second century before Christ and henceforth were known as Jews. The DNA evidence does not prove the theory held by some that this Edomite strain is the predominant one in Jewry but it is not inconsistent with it either. As for the Khazars, who is to say that they did not originate somewhere in the Middle East before we find them in history?

      • Joseph

        I will just add that the holocaust story is being questioned completely by Ahmadinejad . The notion that the Germans used an insecticide (zyklon-b) to both delouse clothing and barracks and then they somehow miraculously improvised to asphyxiate hundreds of people (up to 1500 at one time) with this same insecticide is nonsense for there exists no evidence whatsoever (if such evidence could even possibly exist ). An asphyxiation operation which would have had to have been performed thousands of times at different locations by various personnel ! What was the technical process ? Where are the instructions for such an operation ? Not one autopsy of a body caused by asphyxiation by insecticde zyklon-b ! No wonder european and western nations do not allow for freedom of speech when it comes to the holocaust myth !

      • Another View

        Israel proves that a prosper state can exist in the ME.
        Israel was established at 1947,most of the Israelis were refugees from Europe and Arab states. Israel suffered from wars and rough neighborhood.
        But the results: Israel GDP (7 millions people) is simillar to the GDP of 350 millions Arabs (with out the oil).

        Instead of learning from Israel the Arab people arespending their time how to destroy it.

        • http://www.jeremyrhammond.com Jeremy R. Hammond

          Israel was not established in 1947. It was unilaterally declared to exist in May 1948 in an action accompanied by the ethnic cleansing of 750,000 Arabs from Palestine. Let us not encourage the Arab people to learn from such an example.

    An interesting article — only try to figure out who the author Franklin Lamb is. An article on him in Wikipedia has been deleted. Elsewhere it says he is supposedly an Oregon lawyer working at the Lebanese University. But after that? Nothing other than Hezbollah saw fit to publish one of his articles on their website. When he was supposedly shot in August, Palestine Civil Rights Campaign-Lebanon was upset enough to publish this and then reassure their readers he was really alright. The last sentence of his article, “all people of good will continue to inexorably confront the remaining 19th Century colonial enterprise which is the artificial and illegitimate Zionist implantation on Palestinian land” hardly is that of an objective writer, but more of someone who sees the world through the Palestinian lens — which is alright, if only he would ‘fess up to that is where he is coming from.

    While I fully agree that racist/expansionist/occupier/oppressor Israel’s days are numbered, I am highly suspect of Franklin Lamb’s credibility.

    This is not the first article in that matter. And of course not the last one. The whole story IMHO, is being created all by Mossad. Every time when something is not going by Tel Aviw mind, there is always ay-vay about Israel. To the best of my knowledge, the USA will be on their side till their last breath. That’s it.
