“US Support for Israel” Harms America, Says Top US Military Commander
American support for Israel harms the US throughout the Middle East,
according to the most senior military commander in that region, Marine
Corps General James Mattis.
Speaking at the prestigious Aspen Security Forum
in Colorado late in July, General Mattis, who retired May 22 as chief
of the U.S. Central Command, in charge of U.S. forces in the Middle
East, said that America needs to work “with a sense of urgency” to
achieve a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict,
because resentment of U.S. support for Israel hurts America militarily
throughout the region.
He said the “current situation is
unsustainable” and that America must act “with a sense of urgency”
toward a two-state solution, because the chances “are starting to ebb
because of the settlements and where they’re at.” If it fails, he said,
the result will be “apartheid.”
Then to the shock of his interviewer
host, the ultra-Zionist and former AIPAC lobbyist who pretends to be one
of CNN’s “objective” journalists, Wolf Blitzer, General Mattis said
that he “paid a military-security price every day as the commander of
CentCom because the Americans were seen as biased in support of Israel.”
The actual transcript of the discussion read as follows:
Wolf Blitzer: Is this Israeli-Palestinian peace process going anywhere?
Mattis: Wolf, that’ll depend on the
protagonists and do they want it as much as I think our valiant
secretary of state wants it and is doing everything possible. But I
would tell you that the current situation is unsustainable. It’s got to
be directly addressed. We don’t want to turn this over to our children,
the same thing that you and I have lived with our entire adult lives.
For example, if I’m Jerusalem and I put
500 Jewish settlers out here to the east and there’s 10,000 Arab
settlers in here, if we draw the border to include ‘em, either it ceases
to be a Jewish state or you say the Arabs don’t get to vote—apartheid.
That didn’t work too well the last time I saw that practiced in a
So we’ve got to work on this with a
sense of urgency, and I paid a military security price every day as the
commander of CentCom because the Americans were seen as biased in
support of Israel and that moderates all the moderate Arabs who want to
be with us, because they can’t come out publicly in support of people
who don’t show respect for the Arab Palestinians.”
Ironically, General Mattis’s predecessor
as chief of CentCom, General David Petraeus, said exactly the same
thing in a briefing paper he submitted to the Senate Armed Services
Committee in March 2010.
In that paper,
General Petraeus said that the “enduring hostilities between Israel and
some of its neighbors present distinct challenges to our ability to
advance our interests in the AOR.
“The conflict foments anti-American
sentiment, due to a perception of U.S. favoritism for Israel. Arab anger
over the Palestinian question limits the strength and depth of U.S.
partnerships with governments and peoples in the AOR and weakens the
legitimacy of moderate regimes in the Arab world.
“Meanwhile, al-Qaeda and other militant
groups exploit that anger to mobilize support. The conflict also gives
Iran influence in the Arab world through its clients, Lebanese Hizballah
Both the former two heads of CentCom have now stated in public that America’s “alliance” with Israel hurts American interests.
It is however, not so much an “alliance”
between two willing parties, but rather a reality that America has been
colonized by Jewish Supremacists and forced into supporting the Zionist
