In the short run, I don’t foresee any significant rise in anti-Jewish sentiment, even if the Iraq situation gets worse.
But that could change quickly if, for example, the US were to become involved in a regional war against Iran on behalf of Israel.
[...] This is an operation—Operation Mass Appeal, that had been going on prior to UNSCOM being asked to be the source of particular data, and it's an operation that continued after my resignation." In January 1998, his inspection team in Iraq was blocked from some weapons sites by Iraqi officials stating that information obtained from these sites would be used for future planning of attacks.
UN Inspectors were ordered out of Iraq by the United States Government, shortly before Operation Desert Fox attacks began in December 1998, using information which had been gathered for the purpose of disarmament to identify targets which would reduce Iraq's ability to wage both conventional and possibly unconventional warfare.
In addition, key leaders of the Lobby’s major organizations lent their voices to the campaign for war.” There are strategic planning documents and reports from right-wing think tanks with close ties to the White House, that prove that the U. invasion and occupation of Iraq was part of an effort to create a in the Middle East.
Iraq is the only Arab country that combines significant oil reserves, a sizable population, and an adequate water supply to maintain an independent foreign and domestic policy.
Such a war would have terrible consequences, and would likely generate widespread anti-Jewish rage, especially if the US economy falters. In other words, as a flip side of the current situation, where U. support for Israel has led to increased anti-Americanism in the Arab-Islamic world, Israeli support for an American invasion and occupation of Iraq will inevitably exacerbate anti-Israeli and anti-Jewish sentiments.
The disastrous consequences of the invasion would be a great opportunity for concerned Americans to demonstrate that this tragedy was a result of the undue influence of the oil companies, military contractors, right-wing ideologues, and excessive corporate influence over our government’s policy initiatives.Iraq, as an American vassal state would control the 2nd largest oil reserves in the world and the US would have enormous leverage over Iraq’s immediate neighbors - Iran, Saudi Arabia, Syria, and Turkey, among others. Regarding the neo-conservatives, the notorious Feith/Wurmser “Clean Break” paper was a call for Israel to break from the US-led peace process and the perceived restraints on Israeli actions by the U. government, then under the leadership of the more moderate Clinton administration, a call for the United States to take risky initiatives at the behest of Israel.Similarly, the paper demonstrates how, rather than being a case of the Israelis getting the neo-conservatives to pressure the United States to change its policies to a more hard-line position, it was American neo-conservatives pressuring Israel to change its policies to a more hard-line position. (born July 15, 1961) was a United Nations weapons inspector in Iraq from 1991 to 1998, and later a critic of United States foreign policy in the Middle East.Prior to the invasion of Iraq in March 2003, Ritter stated that Iraq possessed no significant weapons of mass destruction (WMD) capabilities, becoming "the loudest and most credible skeptic of the Bush administration’s contention that Hussein was hiding weapons of mass destruction." He received harsh criticism from the political establishment but became a popular antiwar figure and occasional talk show commentator as a result of his stance, later proven to be correct.Instead, the war was motivated in good part by a desire to make Israel more secure.
