In 2002, George W. Bush’s Zionist speechwriter David Frum coined the term “axis of evil” – and applied it to Iraq, Iran, and North Korea.
But today, if we were to nominate two Middle Eastern countries and one non-Middle Eastern country as the real axis of evil, it would be Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the USA. Those three countries have been spreading violence and destabilization throughout the Middle East and beyond.
Unlike Frum’s trio, the Zio-Saudi-American axis really is an axis. And unlike Frum’s trio, it is genuinely evil.
Israel, Saudi Arabia and the USA created ISIL. Israel, with help from the Americans and the Saudis, is committing genocide in Palestine. Israel, Saudi Arabia and the USA are promoting sectarian tension and violence throughout the Islamic world. And they are collaborating to pillage the region’s resources.
What would it take to stop this axis of evil?
Perhaps the declassification of 28 pages of the 2002 US Senate Joint Inquiry Report on 9/11?
President George W. Bush slapped a “top secret” stamp on those pages. Senators and congressmen who have seen the redacted 28 pages say they implicate one or more governments in the 9/11 attacks.
Rep. Steven Lynch (D-MA) says that they show 9/11 was perpetrated in collaboration with “other governments” and “government agencies.”
Rep. Walter Jones (R-NC) says: “If the 9/11 hijackers had outside help – particularly from one or more foreign governments – the press and the public have a right to know what our government has or has not done to bring justice to the perpetrators.”
Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) says: “I went into the soundproof, secret room here in Congress and read those 28 pages. And it was a really disturbing event for me to read those. I had to stop every two or three pages and rearrange my perception of history. And it’s that fundamental — those 28 pages.... It certainly changes your view of the Middle East... We need to declassify those 28 pages.... the American people deserve to know what happened and what led up to 9/11 so that we can prevent the next one.”
Which foreign governments (and American “agencies”) perpetrated the 9/11 attacks?
It is no secret that Israel – and the ruling family of Saudi Arabia – benefitted from 9/11.
In late August 2001, just before the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah wrote to President Bush saying “a time comes when peoples and nations part... it is time for the United States and Saudi Arabia to look at their separate interests. Those governments that don’t feel the pulse of the people and respond to it will suffer the fate of the Shah of Iran.”
Crown Prince Abdullah knew that “the pulse of the people” in the Middle East was fed up with America’s support of Israeli genocide – and Saudi Arabia’s alliance with America and Israel. The Ibn Saud family, he knew, was about to go the way of the Shah of Iran... unless something momentous happened.
9/11 was the momentous event that kept the Ibn Saud family in power, and Saudi Arabia in the American-Zionist orbit. Immediately after 9/11, US puppet forces in Saudi Arabia labeled those pressing for change “terrorists” and crushed their efforts to free Saudi Arabia from US domination. Then-Saudi-intelligence-chief Turki Bin Faisal (who had resigned on 9/11), Prince Fahd bin Turki bin Saud al-Kabir, and Prince Sultan bin Faisal bin Turki al-Saud all died within a few days of each other after allegedly being implicated in 9/11 by captured mentally retarded “terrorist” Abu Zubaydah.
The US-blackmailed Saudi royals told their restive people that since 15 of the 19 alleged 9/11 hijackers were Saudis, the Americans might bomb or invade unless Saudi Arabia agreed to remain under US authority and follow instructions. Indeed, Bush probably issued a threat to bomb Saudi Arabia back to the Stone Age, just as he threatened Pakistan. According to The Guardian: “The Bush administration threatened to bomb Pakistan ‘back to the stone age’ after the September 11 attacks if the country did not cooperate with America’s war on Afghanistan...”
Just as 9/11 saved the Saudi royals and their US client state, it also saved Israel. As Netanyahu crowed that 9/11 was “very good,” and Ariel Sharon bragged “we Jews control America,” Israel’s rabid Likud government crushed the Palestinian intifada with heretofore-unthinkable brutality.
9/11 also saved Israel from bankruptcy. In her book The Shock Doctrine, Naomi Klein wrote that Israel “was hit harder by the dot-com crash than anywhere else. The country went into immediate free-fall, and by June 2001, analysts were predicting that roughly three hundred high-tech Israeli firms would go bankrupt.”
Showing apparent foreknowledge of 9/11, the Israeli government responded by hiking military spending 10.7 percent and (according to Klein) “encouraged the tech industry to branch out from information and communication technologies and into security and surveillance... A slew of new start-ups were launched, specializing in everything from ‘search and nail’ data mining, to surveillance cameras, to terrorist profiling. When the market for these services and devices exploded in the years after September 11, the Israeli state openly embraced a new economic vision...”
While saving Israel’s economy and enabling it to crush the Palestinians and assassinate Arafat, 9/11 also brought to fruition Oded Yinon’s plan, repackaged as Netanyahu’s “Clean Break” document in 1996, to have the US military smash Israel’s enemies into pieces. Iraq, Libya, Syria, Sudan and Somalia have all been massively damaged or destroyed. Lebanon was wrested from Syria and handed to Israel (only to regain its independence thanks to Hezbollah). Only one country on the neocons’ hit list of “seven countries in five years” has been too strong to attack: Iran.
Today, Iran and its regional allies vaunt their vision of a future Middle East “without America and Israel.” They know that if the US stops propping up Tel Aviv and Riyadh, those two neanderthal regimes will collapse into the proverbial dustbin of history... and the Middle East will finally win its independence.
If the 28 pages of the 2002 US Senate Joint Inquiry Report on 9/11 are declassified, the American people will learn that America’s Middle Eastern “allies” – in collaboration with American traitors – perpetrated the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon that killed almost 3000 Americans in a single morning. If that happens, the US relationship with Saudi Arabia and Israel will implode at free-fall speed. A new, independent, prosperous Middle East, free of Israeli genocide and Saudi barbarity, will be born.
Congressional bill HR 428 would force the declassification of the momentous 28 pages. To date the bill has 17 sponsors.
