Barry Chamish: The CIA Hoax Report!
A phony CIA report on Israel is being distributed by a notoriously iffy Canadian website. The problem is its conclusions may be right for all the wrong reasons. We will dive into those reasons, as soon as we divest ourselves of this purported "study." The report begins with the cliche, of Israel being a colonial Apartheid state, which will be destroyed, when millions of Palestinians all decide to move back there. I will dismiss this observation with the endlessly quoted tourists of the 19th century, like Twain and Balzac, who reported an empty Palestine, where the Jews were the majority in centers like Jerusalem, Tsfat and Tiberius. The British takeover in 1917 attracted a new population of ancient Palestinians attracted by jobs. If you want to talk colonial takeover, start with the Hashemite dynasty, moved by the British from Mecca to Jordan, a generation before there was an Israel. A study conducted by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has cast doubt over Israel's survival beyond the next 20 years. The CIA report predicts an inexorable movement away from a two state, to a one state solution, as the most viable model, based on democratic principles of full equality that sheds the looming specter of colonial Apartheid, while allowing for the return of the 1947/1948 and 1967 refugees. The latter being the precondition for sustainable peace in the region. In short, the CIA, if it claims to be professional, would never have written such a silly introduction. This is a classic far left cliche. But the misinformation gets even sillier. The study, which has been made available only to a certain number of individuals, further forecasts the return of all Palestinian refugees to the occupied territories, and the exodus of two million Israelis, who would move to the US in the next fifteen years. There are over 500,000 Israelis with American passports, and more than 300,000 living in the area of just California, International lawyer Franklin Lamb said in an interview with Press TV on Friday, adding that those who do not have American or western passports, have already applied for them. We begin with the accurate fact, that half a million Israelis boast American passports. Then the baloney. According to this hoax, All other Israelis have already applied for their passports. In other words, Everyone is getting ready to leave. This is not according to the alleged CIA report, but is a citation from a lawyer no one has heard of commenting on this dumb hoax. This leads to the inevitable conclusion that Israel is not going the way of South Africa or the Soviet Union, which kept their colonial populations, but to an even more appealing end, where all the Jews leave.
