Netanyahu won’t go quietly and will opt for the burning torches

YOSSI VERTER, HAARETZ, NOVEMBER 22, 2019

It was totally clear in his remarks Thursday: The embattled prime minister aims to accuse the legal system of launching a coup against him – and wait for the masses to follow his lead.

Not a smidgen of humility or regret did we hear from defendant Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday night. Israel’s first sitting prime minister to be charged with bribery, fraud and breach of trust neither bowed his head in shame nor gave any other indication of soul-searching.

Like any garden-variety criminal, he assailed the police investigators, the prosecutors and the attorney general in crude language and with boundless chutzpah. With his back to the wall, both figuratively and literally, and facing trial, maybe even prison, he gave shape to what has been written on the wall for three years now: He has no intention of going quietly and cutting his losses.

His hatred for the system and his deep conviction that he has been persecuted through no fault of his own, that he’s the victim of a Kafkaesque witch hunt, will lead him to places Israel has never gone before. It would be no exaggeration to say that the state is now in great danger. The security threats are significant and require judgment and supreme responsibility. But the man whose hands are on the wheel is fighting for his life, and he’s capable of anything.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I very much agree with Vertner's assessment here, and have found some very interesting, and reasoned, reporting at Haaretz, to which I have linked before.

But it is obvious to anyone with more than two brain cells to rub together, that the Middle East is headed for more military conflict, largely because of the US's unrelenting aid and abetting of Israel's criminal behaviour against its neighbors in the region. This is, of course, illegal, per the Symington Amendment Symington Amendment, but the US government only picks and chooses what it wants to observe, and what it wants to ignore, when it comes to US foreign policy and Israel, unfortunately.

There are three separate items, coming together this week, that gravely concern me;

1. The timing of the announcement of the charges against Netanyahu, and his potential "mad-dog reaction" to them; AG announces Netanyahu to stand trial for bribery, fraud and breach of trust

2. The US government has deployed another 3,000 military personnel to Saudi Arabia US continues building troop presence in Saudi Arabia (to allegedly counter Iranian Aggression)
and:
3. Massive Iranian defense drills are being held now. IRAN HOLDS MAJOR AIR WAR GAMES AS U.S. MILITARY MOVES THROUGH TOP OIL ROUTE

This article goes on to state: "Iran has begun wide scale air defense drills, simulating a potential aerial invasion amid regional unrest and a powerful U.S. Navy warship sailed near its shores.

Speaking on the sidelines of the 98-Guardians of Velayat Sky joint exercises, Iranian Army Air Defense Brigadier General Alireza Sabahifard said Thursday that the maneuvers were being held across an area of some 416,000 square kilometers—roughly the size of the U.S. state of California—mostly in the northern province of Semnan. He said his forces "will practice the toughest and most realistic combat conditions," simulating a conflict in the Persian Gulf, especially the Strait of Hormuz, the world's most important oil chokepoint."

Right now, as Americans start to gather for one of the most iconically American celebrations, Thanksgiving, I would not at all be surprised if Netanyahu's minions in the IDF, and/or Shin Beit, have decided to "cook up" a false flag, engineered to kill as many Americans as possible (as happened in the USS Liberty Affair, trying to trick the US into believing that Egypt was the culprit), or against American assets, blame it on Iran, and off we go, into a war against.... Iran, Syria, and ... Russia.

President Trump looks at both Netanyahu, the Butcher of Gaza, and Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, the Butcher of Yemen as his "BFFs" in the region; particularly in the case of Netanyahu, and the laying out of these charges, nothing could be further from the truth.

Will Netanyahu exploit Trump's belief that he is a true friend, by ordering a false flag?!?

The short answer here is, Hell yes, if Netanyahu believes, even for a second, that such an horrific act is the only thing which will "save his bacon" on these corruption charges.

Please remember what a high ranking Russian official told a delegation from Iran last June: Iran ‘Won’t Be Alone’ If U.S. Attacks, Russian Official Says

Didn't read that in an American paper or blog at the time, did you?!? Of course not!! This is why people who want a real handle on the news read the foreign press in English, to get at least a clue, as to what is happening globally. Don't just trust us; get out there and decide for yourself.

But this coming week looks potentially very ugly, particularly if you live anywhere in the Middle East.
