Philip M. Giraldi: “Israel to Annex the United States”

Support SouthFront

Written by Philip M. Giraldi; Originally appeared at The Unz Review

As the Beatles once put it, “I read the news today, oh boy…” One might argue that the “oh boy” has been part and parcel of one’s morning media review ever since 9/11, but depending on one’s own inclinations, the daily content might well be considered particularly depressing over the past several years. As regular readers of Unz.com will already know, my particular perception is that the American “special relationship” with the Jewish state has been a disaster for the United States and for the entire Middle East region, to include even Israel itself. Israel has used the uncritical U.S. support it has enjoyed since the time of Lyndon Johnson to pursue unwise policies vis-à-vis its neighbors that have drawn Washington into conflicts that would have been avoided. It has meanwhile exploited the power of its formidable domestic lobby to bleed the U.S. Treasury of well over $100 billion in direct grants plus three times that much in terms of largely hidden trade and co-production arrangements approved by a subservient Congress and endorsed by a controlled media.

In return, the United States has wound up with a “best friend and ally” that has spied on the U.S., stolen its technology, corrupted its government processes and lied consistently about its neighbors to create a casus belli so Americans can die in pointless wars rather than Israelis. The Lavon Affair and the attack on the U.S.S. Liberty reveal that Israel’s government will kill Americans when it suits them to do so, knowing full well that the sycophants in Washington and the Jewish dominated media will hardly whimper at the affront.

Over the past three years Donald J. Trump has delivered on his promise to be the “best friend in Washington that Israel has ever had.” He appointed his own bankruptcy lawyer and arch Zionist David Friedman as U.S. Ambassador, a man who clearly sees his mission as promoting Israeli interests rather than those of the United States. Israel has illegally exploited an American green light to declare all of Jerusalem its capital and Trump has obligingly moved the U.S. Embassy to suit. The Jewish state, which has inevitably declared itself legally to be “Jewish” and no longer anything like a democracy, has also illegally annexed the occupied Syrian Golan Heights and is now preparing to assimilate much of the formerly Palestinian West Bank. Expulsion of nearly all remaining Palestinians, even the ones who are Israeli citizens, will no doubt come next and has in fact been called for by some Jewish politicians. The extreme Israel-philia embraced by the White House and Congress has, inter alia, meant unrelenting hostility towards both Iran and Syria, neither of which poses any real threat or challenge to the American people or to any genuine U.S. interests.

Friedman has even distorted the State Department’s use of the English language, the “occupied” West Bank is now referred to as “disputed” or “contested.” Friedman, who has disregarded existing U.S. law by contributing to Israel’s illegal settlements, has consistently served as an apologist for Israeli snipers shooting unarmed demonstrators in Gaza and for his much beloved rampaging settlers destroying the livelihoods of Palestinian farmers.

The record is appalling, thank you Mr. Trump, but, to return to the “news today,” an article that appeared last Thursday in the Jerusalem Post still had the power to make me spill my cup of coffee in disbelief. The headline read “Friedman: Second Trump term could take U.S.-Israel ties to next level.” I was not sure if I wanted to read the piece at all as I feared that it would probably mandate transferring the U.S. Treasury Department to Jerusalem and placing the Pentagon under the control of Benjamin Netanyahu. Meanwhile, we Americans would be required to cross through checkpoints when traveling between states and would only be able to find Untermensch work growing cabbages on a sprawling network of kibbutzes.

As it turned out, of course, the Friedman interview with Jerusalem Post journalists was all about Israel, not the United States, even though there was some vague nonsense about the Trump so-called peace plan munificently ending most conflict in the Middle East region and thereby benefiting Americans. Friedman began with “We need to maximize mutual benefits of the relationship in ways I don’t think have happened before. The only limits are one’s imagination as to where we can go.” If Friedman meant that the U.S. has not reaped any of the “mutual benefits” he is undoubtedly correct, but somehow I don’t think that was his intention. And there certainly has been a lot of imagination in the convoluted and often hidden Israeli Lobby schemes to bilk the American taxpayer over the course of the past 75 years.

Friedman characterized the situation before the Embassy move as “We were applying a double standard to Israel, relative to every other country in the world. We were telling Israel, you don’t have the right to choose your capital city… And it’s not just any capital; it’s Jerusalem.” Wrong, Dave. The problem with Jerusalem is that the Jewish state wanted its capital on land that it controlled but did not own under international law and through the agreements that led to the founding of Israel. Pretending that there is some special right through divine providence doesn’t change that one bit.

Friedman also had the interesting sidebar comment that illustrated just how warped the Trump view of Israel actually is. Apparently, Friedman and the president-elect had discussions on moving the Embassy prior to inauguration day “with some officials predicting that he was going to announce the move the same day as his inauguration on January 20, 2017. That didn’t happen, Friedman said, because first conversations were needed in all of the different government offices – State Department, the Pentagon and more.” That Trump was willing to highlight and promote a major pander to the Israel Lobby on the very day he was inaugurated is more than just telling, it is bizarre.

Symbols are apparently also dear to the heart of David Friedman. “Americans who support Israel understand the significance of Jerusalem. It’s what the Statue of Liberty, the Lincoln Memorial, Plymouth Rock and Valley Forge are… Because America was founded on those types of principles, Americans profoundly understand the importance of Jerusalem to the State of Israel.” Friedman added that retaining symbols like Hebron, which is in the Jewish people’s “biblical DNA” is also an important element in the Trump “peace plan.”

Whoa, David, it’s convenient to cite the American experience to justify what Israel is doing but the United States at least ostensibly was founded on the principle that “all men are created equal.” Israel is by law an apartheid state based on religion. And when last I checked Hebron was a predominantly Palestinian city under military occupation to protect the settler interlopers who are working hard to drive out the original residents. It is the site of the 1994 Ibrahimi Mosque massacre of Palestinian worshippers carried out by Brooklyn-born Jewish fanatic Baruch Goldstein. Twenty-nine Palestinians were killed. Yes, “biblical DNA” seems to fit just right if one considers the fate of the Canaanites.

And Friedman had something to say about the planned July 1st Israeli annexation of “West Bank settlements, biblical sites and the Jordan Valley.” He provided a Trump Administration green light saying “We will be ready to address this issue if Israel is ready. Ultimately, as Secretary Pompeo said, it’s Israel’s decision. They have to decide what they want to do.” According to Friedman, the Trump administration’s “vision for peace” would allow Israel to directly annex 30% of the West Bank and exercise control over most of the remainder, which would include “all settlements and the entire Jordan Valley.” The Palestinians would have no control over water resources or even their own airspace. Mapping the precise details is currently subject to “judgment calls in Israel’s court.” Note that all the critical decision making is by Israel with the full backing of the United States. The peace plan has been rightly characterized as a complete surrender to Israeli interests with the Palestinians having no say in the outcome.

Friedman also described the importance of sending a clear message to the Palestinians blaming them for everything to include the denial of basic human rights, which is in fact an Israeli specialty. “If you tell the Palestinians that no matter what happens, no matter how recalcitrant you are, no matter how malign your activities are, no matter how you fail to observe basic human rights for your own people – with all that, you still get to veto the rights of the Jewish people and the State of Israel and their unquestionable capital… it’s just the wrong signal.”

And where to go from here? Friedman opines that “the equation of U.S.-Israel relations needs to be flipped. Rather than Americans seeing themselves as helping Israel, they must realize how much Israel can do for the U.S. – for example, by putting groundbreaking Israeli innovations on the market in the U.S. first.” Sure, steal the technology, re-engineer it, and then quietly arrange sweetheart trade deals through one’s co-religionists to sell it back to the suckers in the United States.

The Jerusalem Post interview concludes with Friedman’s prediction that “Should Trump be reelected, there will be many more opportunities for deepening the connections between the U.S. and Israel.” If that is all true, we Americans might as well surrender our sovereignty right now and save ourselves the pain of going through another corrupt presidential election.

The Rothschild neocolony in Palestine, is a symptom, possibly one of the most egregious one, but, as with other manifestations of the problem, not the key element in it; and focusing so much on it only benefits the Ziocorporate imperial forces upstream the flow of causality of global blights on mankind’s evolution. European and US financial capitalist forces, and its capacities to invest in everything from the old plantations to Hollywood to bioterrorist labs, were hijacked long ago, centuries before the Lavon Affair, the 1950 Baghdad Bombings and the USS Liberty. It’s in the USA DNA, since the time its so-called “founding fathers” forced their slaves to fight for “freedom” from England, to be ONE SINGLE ENTITY with an expansionist force of imperial capital like the Rothschild neocolony.

No way out in sight for the US, unless it is fundamental change from an instentine war or a major economic catastrophe.

klove and light

SF…Philip M. Giraldi,…

a great Piece of writing.
Spot on.

But I do have 1 Question if i might

Your last sentence

“If that is all true, we Americans might as well surrender our sovereignty right now and save ourselves the pain of going through another corrupt presidential election.”

was sarcastic correct???

or do you seriously believe that the USA was a Sovereign Nation ever since the JFK assassination commited by the british and Israel?

or Maybe i can go back to the Lincoln assassination commited by the British…..Sovereign Nation???

“A total of 72 pages of documentation concerning British secret operations during the American Civil War were recently discovered in the Royal family’s pivate library by an independant journalist and author, Timothy Blainy. The 41-year old American man was working on a book on 19th century espionnage with the permission of the Crown when he made the astonishing discovery. All documents have been submitted to authentification by three different teams of experts, all of which have come to the the conclusion that the documents were legitimate, confirming the authenticity of the paper, the ink, the calligraphy and the official seals.

“According to these records, an agent of Queen Victoria named Sir James McElroy, would haved received in january 1864, the sum of 500£, an incredible amount at the time, that was to be used to recruit local collaborators and criminals in America, in order to kidnap or kill the President of the Union. The British Lord would have traveled to Canada and then to the southern capital of Richmond, where he would have established contact with the head the Confederate secrest services, James Dunwoody Bulloch. With the help of Mr. Bulloch, Sir McElroy would have been introduced to a secret society known as the “Knights of the Golden Circle”. From the members of this pro-secessionionist organization, he recruited three men known for their profound anti abolitionist sympathy, namely: Samuel Arnold, Michael O’Laughlen and James Wilkes Booth. These men would then have helped the British agent establish a vast network of spies and saboteurs throughout the United States.

“The group first conspired to kidnap Lincoln in order to exchange him for 10 000 confederate war prisonners, but that plan did not get approbation from London and was not executed. They then revised their plan and decided instead to kill the President of the Union, Abraham Lincoln, as well as Vice President Andrew Jackson and Secretary of State William H. Seward. This new plan got the approval from London who sent another 200£ to help in the accomplishment of the task. The plan was not executed as planned, as the attack on Secretary Seward failed and the man assigned to attack the Vice President finally abandoned the project and threw away his weapon. Only President Lincoln was killed, while he was watching the play Our American Cousin with his wife, at Ford’s Theatre in Washington, D.C.

Probably the best example of the USA not beeing a Sovereign Nation Comes with Andrew Jackson and the BANK WARS.
When Van Buren met Jackson on July 4, Jackson declared, “The Bank, Mr. Van Buren, is trying to kill me. But I will kill it.”
Assassiantion attempt jan.30 1835 by Richard Lawrence, an unemployed house painter from England.

Andrew Jacksons best QUOTE About the BANKSTERS that could still be used today:
“You are a den of vipers and thieves. I intend to rout you out, and by the eternal God, I will rout you out.”

So again Mr. Giraldi, when was the USA ever Sovereign?

Pave Way IV

I know it’s just sarcasm, but annex? WTF would be the point of that? Israel has to be completely satisfied by their current arrangement with their US host. Once they’ve sucked us dry, they’ll discard our shriveled corpse and move on to another new ‘best friend ever’ patron/host.

Hold still, bitch! AIPAC just wants a little taste of your flesh. Or are you anti-Semitic?

Ivan Freely

Just one problem. There’s no one to replace the US as host.

good american

There is always Russia and Europe in general. Are there any Chinese jews?

Pave Way IV

There actually are a few thousand Jews in China – Kaifeng Jews. Kind of 10th century leftovers from Persian Jewish traders working the Silk Road.

Unrelated – Israel was going to give some huge desalination plant contract to a Chinese company. One of US Secretary of State Pompeo’s little ‘jobs’ in Israel now is to discourage them from using China for anything, including the desal plant. I can’t wait to see how successful Pompeo is at convincing Israel to NOT use the cheapest vendor for a state project. Unfortunately, his persuasion will somehow involve MY tax dollars going to Israel – because that always seems to be the solution. See lamprey eel above.

Pave Way IV

Ha. There ya go. They’ll own Israel soon enough. Han: 1 Rothschild:0

Ivan Freely

It appears there are disagreements on the authenticity of the Kaifeng.

Ivan Freely

No Chinese Jews. There have been one ethnic Chinese group (i.e. Hakka) that call themselves Jews but they’re not Jews in any sense of the word. I’ve gotten into many conversations with ethnic Han Chinese and they told me to avoid the Hakka due to their Jew-like behavior. However, I’ve never met any.

Arch Bungle

Not the Hakka – they were the first Christian coverted tribes from the 18th century.
You’re meaning the Kaifeng Jews.
The Kaifeng are simply “Cargo Culting” the debris of Judaism left by an extinct group of jews who may have lived in china centuries ago.

Arch Bungle

Lol, btw the Hakka say the same about the Han. They don’t get along which is why so many Hakka are over in Singapore.
Same for the Hokkien and Teochew.

Pave Way IV

US was the biggest, juiciest, dumbest host in the past, but there are plenty of other fish in the sea. Parasitic lamprey-type eels have managed to find fresh hosts since the Cretaceous Period, or for the last 140 to 60 million years, give or take. I don’t think they’ll have any problems finding someone else to feed off of – they can’t do much else.

Traiano Welcome

They are hoping to use China for that purpose.
Little do they know, the Han out-Jew the Jews.

Pave Way IV

The battle will be EPIC. Wish I could watch it play out, but I’ll be busy in in the ruins of Mad Max post-USA trying to keep away from the cannibals. We won’t have broadband. We won’t have the internet any more. Hell, we won’t even have electricity or running water. Oh well – I guess we f’ked up.

Ivan Freely

I was told it was the Hakka Chinese.

Arch Bungle

Hakka are one of the Christianised minorities in China, like Teochew and Hokkien. The Han are those from most if the Imperial dynasties are drawn from. Including the current ‘imperial’ dynasty ;-)


USA shouldnt let in anymore Chinese and muslims if they wanna save their country.

Traiano Welcome

I agree. The excellent talents and capabilities of the Chinese should be kept within China. Muslims should stay in their native lands and apply their talents and resources to improving those countries.

The US does not deserve them.

Concrete Mike

More racist tropes from an uneducated morron.

Are you a native american? Probably not, then your an immigrant too you dumb sack of doorknobs.


If the US is a passing fancy, then Israel is less than a flash in the pan. One day it will be over faster than you can type …. wtf. My take.

johnny rotten

Since 1913 U$A have been a Zionist colony.

cechas vodobenikov

not possible—Israel is a US colony


size-wise it could appear to be the case but in political terms the jews have bought and paid each and every lawmaker on the hill and in each and every state and they direct the policies of the disjointed states of A in every respect. so from that perspective the disjointed states is subservient to the group of domestic jews and the jews in palestine and elsewhere embedded/entrenched jews, such as london, such as paris and so on. and that is precisely why it is of imperative importance that they are stopped and sent to kingdom come!

El Mashi

You mean Israel is a victim of the Untied States. You may be right: Israel is the spoiled child of the United States.

cechas vodobenikov

without non Americans the US would become 4th world —their skilled professions r all non amerikans and their crops r harvested by non amerikans…my Austrian friend informed my he was invited to a party in San Francisco—the elite 25 engineers that run apple computer…he told me he heard only 2 languages spoken, German and Russian—he was told —we don’t want amerikans—they r incompetent

Peter Moy

You do have to give credit to the immigrants who harvest the crops and process the livestock. It is a back breaking job that would downright kill most Americans if they had to do it. Many Americans are so arrogant that they say immigrants take away jobs from them. I say get off your lazy, stupid, mentally ill, physically ill, drug-addicted, alcohol-addicted, suicidal hippo ass and apply for these jobs. The stupidest people are the ones who ridicule other countries because of their incredible arrogance, ignorance and hatred of themselves for being losers in life. Many people can’t even point on a world map where the countries they hate are. They are really that dumb. No wonder US politicians at all levels of government can run amok without any real resistance. They govern dumb and apathetic cattle. To get another perspective, read the article in the upcoming June, 2020 Atlantic Monthly magazine which shows how the corona virus reveals the US to be a failed state.

El Mashi

In San Francisco, the tech languages are Hindi, Mandarin, and Russian and German last.

El Mashi

United States and Israel relationship: why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free.
