Pro-Israel Washington real Ďchickenshití
Pro-Israel Washington real Ďchickenshití

So, an anonymous White House official dared to call Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a chickenshit this week. And the media is full of it, pondering on whether the vulgarity foreshadows a strategic rupture between Washington and its favorite client regime.

Come off it. The frisson of excitement amounts to nothing except in the imagination of American critics of the Zionist lobby and their fantasy that US foreign policy might one day break free from slavishly indulging the Zionist regime in Tel Aviv.

First, there was the unseemly, pathetic rush for damage limitation from the White House and the State Department. Spokesmen for President Barack Obama and his foreign secretary, John Kerry, immediately denounced the “disgraceful and inappropriate” loose language denigrating poor Bibi.

Washington was at pains to distance itself from the crude comment about Netanyahu being a coward, and proceeded to bend over backwards as usual to reassure Tel Aviv that it in no way reflected official US thinking.

Secondly, in the same week, Washington performed its usual service to Tel Aviv by blocking any sanction at the UN Security Council over yet more new Israeli settlements in East Jerusalem (al-Quds). Yes, there was the token platitudinous tap on the wrist to Tel Aviv from the State Department about how the latest proposal for 1,000 new illegal settler units in the Palestinian contested capital would be harmful to the comatose peace process.

But Tel Aviv knows very well by now that Washington’s admonition is just so much hot air, and that without the backing of any punitive sanctions, it is effectively a green light to proceed with the illegal annexation of East Jerusalem (al-Quds). Not even the outrageous Israeli closure of al-Aqsa Mosque – Islam’s third holiest site -- elicited a meaningful response from Washington.

Thirdly was the scarcely reported gift to Israel this week of 25 more F-35 stealth fighter jets worth around $4 billion. The new generation warplane has yet to come into service and some critics say that it is an over-hyped piece of hi-tech junk. Be that as it may, the F-35 nevertheless represents the Pentagon’s presumed finest killing machine and is shrouded in secrecy.

Yet Israel is to be entrusted with this futuristic fighter jet in a way that no other foreign country is. That speaks volumes of the integral and inviolable relationship between the US and its Israeli client regime.

This largesse is on top of the $3 billion that Israel receives annually from American taxpayers and on top of hundreds of millions more dollars for new missile defense systems - even after two months of slaughter against Palestinians in Gaza earlier this summer.

So put the derogatory epithet for Netanyahu in context. There may be some personal umbrage from the White House towards the odious Netanyahu and his insolent Likud ministers over their insults to John Kerry in recent months.

That acrimony seems to have manifested last week when senior Obama administration figures snubbed Israeli Minister for Military Affairs Moshe Ya’alon during his visit to Washington allegedly because of his rude dismissal of Kerry earlier this year when he called Kerry “naive and messianic” in his so-called peace
mission.

But don’t kid yourself. These petty gripes aside do not portend any strategic rupture between Washington and Tel Aviv. The Israeli regime is Washington’s imperialist platform in the strategically vital Middle East. As US vice president Joe Biden said obsequiously last year: “If Israel did not exist then the US would have to invent it.”

No crimes against humanity or international law by the Israeli regime are too great for Washington. American hegemony in the oil-rich region rests full square on the continued existence of the Israeli regime. Its genocidal usurpation of Palestinian land is fully indulged, shielded and supported by Washington under the cover of a dead-end peace process.

American critics of Washington’s indulgence of this regime delude themselves by thinking that America has been “hijacked by Zionists.” In their view, if only the good old US of A could wake up to the Zionist scam and shake it off then America might be redeemed as a noble nation with normal relations to the rest of the world.

Hence the excitement this week over the anonymous Obama official’s putdown against Netanyahu. Some wishfully see this spat as a sign of the US finally cutting its ties with Zionist usurpers and corrupters
of America.

That notion fails to understand that the US is at root an imperialist entity that relies on war and foreign domination to assert its capitalist hegemony in the world. Removing Israel will not change that systematic fact. Only a fundamental overhaul of the US from within, breaking its warmongering capitalist system, will produce a law-abiding, peaceful nation.

Until then, Washington will always indulge the criminal likes of Israel as part of its global empire. Calling Netanyahu and his ilk “chickenshits” is only a small part of the truth. The bigger truth is that Washington - hiding behind this criminal regime - is the real chickenshit.
