The Israeli Origin of the War on Terror

October 21, 2018

How Zionist Terrorists Tricked the U.S. into Waging War for Israel

“With Sharon’s backing, terrible things were done. I am no vegetarian, and I supported and even participated in some of the assassination operations Israel carried out. But we are speaking here about mass killing for killing’s sake, to sow chaos and alarm, among civilians, too. Since when do we send donkeys carrying bombs to blow up in marketplaces?"
– Mossad officer, quoted in Ronen Bergman’s Rise and Kill First: The Secret History of Israel’s Targeted Assassinations

The War on Terror doctrine was launched at an Israeli conference in July 1979.  The terrorism conference/propaganda offensive was hosted by the Jonathan [Netanyahu] Institute and was organized by Menachem Begin, the self-proclaimed "Father of Terrorism," and included the most notorious Israeli masterminds of terrorism.  Just three months earlier, the Israeli military created an underground terrorist organization in Lebanon that killed thousands of people with car and truck bombs over the next four years.  The theme of the Begin/Netanyahu propaganda offensive, however, was that the Soviet Union was behind international terrorism.  Understanding this important part of Israeli history will help one grasp the true nature of the fraudulent War on Terror.  It also explains why the Zionist-controlled media is constantly fueling hostility between the United States and Russia.

The 9-11 false-flag terror operation and the War on Terror that followed in its wake will certainly go down in history as two of the most costly and evil frauds in history. The invasions and military operations that have been carried out in the aftermath of 9-11 have cost trillions of dollars and destroyed millions of lives, yet the origin of the War on Terror is not well understood by the public. 

The fact that the origin of the fraudulent War on Terror is not well known is the main reason it has been able to go on for more than 17 years with virtually no resistance from the public. I wrote a book entitled The War on Terror: The Plot to Rule the Middle East (2017) in order to try to rectify the apathy that is caused by general ignorance of the fraudulent nature of the war.

To grasp the utter fraudulence of the War on Terror it is helpful to go back to its origin in Israel when it was launched at a four-day "international propaganda offensive" at the Jonathan [Netanyahu] Institute before a select group of people in July 1979.

In the summer of 1979, a group of powerful and influential people joined to launch an international propaganda offensive to promote and exploit the issue of 'international terrorism.' The propaganda 'blitz' originated in Jerusalem. The conspiratorial network included present and former members of the Israeli and United States governments, new right politicians, high-ranking former United States and Israeli intelligence officers, the anti-détente, pro-cold war group associated with the policies of Senator Henry M. Jackson, a group of neoconservative journalists and intellectuals associated with Commentary magazine, and reactionary British and French politicians and publicists.

This 'anti-terrorist' propaganda campaign was and is being conducted in a style reminiscent of wartime 'psychological warfare' by journalists serving as conduits and spreaders of misinformation originating in Jerusalem.
Philip Paull, International Terrorism: The Propaganda War

It can be rightly said that the War on Terror was born at the Jerusalem Conference on International Terrorism in July 1979. The conference was arranged by the Israeli prime minister Menachem Begin, the former leader of the terrorist Irgun, along with Moshe Dayan, and hosted by Benjamin Netanyahu and his father Ben-Zion at an institute called the Jonathan Institute.

Menachem Begin, who became Israel's prime minister in 1977 had a long history of terrorism, including the bombing of Jerusalem's King David Hotel in 1946.

There is very little written about the Netanyahu Institute conference on terrorism since it was not a public event but rather a kind of conspiratorial "propaganda offensive" that included "seven hundred invited foreign journalists, influential friends of Israel, and top-ranking members of the Israeli military, diplomatic, and intelligence establishment."

Four former chiefs of Israeli military intelligence participated in the conference. Shimon Peres, then head of the opposition party, also participated. George H.W. Bush, who was a presidential candidate at the time, attended and spoke on the final day of the conference.

The purpose of the conference was to launch a new construct to be promoted by the global media: the doctrine of waging war on terrorism, i.e. the War on Terror. 

The only published material I have found about this conspiratorial conference organized by Menachem Begin, the self-proclaimed "Father of Terrorism," is a master's thesis written in 1982 by Philip Paull at San Francisco State University, entitled International Terrorism: The Propaganda War. The quoted material in this article comes from this thesis.

It should be noted that the Jerusalem conference that brought us the War on Terror was in fact an Israeli "propaganda offensive" organized by the most notorious Zionist masterminds of terrorism: Menachem Begin, Moshe Dayan, and Shimon Peres, along with the heads of Israeli military intelligence. 

Among other terrorist crimes, Menachem Begin was responsible for the bombing of the King David Hotel in 1946 and the massacre of the entire Palestinian village of Deir Yassin in April 1948. Moshe Dayan was minister of defense when the Israeli military attacked the defenseless USS Liberty on June 8, 1967, killing 34 crewmen and wounding 174. Both Dayan and Shimon Peres were involved in the Lavon Affair in the summer of 1954 when a group of Egyptian Jews was recruited by Israeli military intelligence to plant bombs inside American and British civilian targets in Egypt:  cinemas, libraries, and American educational centers.

The Israeli terrorists who arranged the "propaganda offensive to promote and exploit the issue of international terrorism" at the Jerusalem conference in July 1979, had certainly not changed their evil ways. Just three months before the conference, the Israeli military chief-of-staff, Rafael Eitan, had established an Israeli underground terrorist organization called the Front for the Liberation of Lebanon from Foreigners, which carried out bombing operations in Lebanon from 1979 through 1983. 

Many of these Israeli bombings involved truck and car bombs. It was toward the end of this period of Israeli terror bombings in Lebanon, in which thousands were killed, that two truck bombs struck the barracks housing "peacekeepers" of the Multinational Force in Lebanon (MNF), killing 241 U.S. Marines and 58 French soldiers on October 23, 1983. According to Caspar Weinberger, United States Secretary of Defense at the time, there is no knowledge of who carried out the bombing that resulted in the deadliest single-day death toll for the United States Marine Corps since the Battle of Iwo Jima in World War II.

Caspar Weinberger, Secretary of Defense, said there is no knowledge who carried out the bombing.  So, who did it?

Thanks to Ronen Bergman's recent book, Rise and Kill First: The Secret History of Israel's Targeted Assassinations (2018), we now know that Rafael Eitan, the Israeli chief-of-staff, was running a massive terrorist bombing campaign using car and truck bombs in Lebanon at precisely the time the U.S. Marines were killed. Furthermore, according to former Mossad agent Victor Ostrovsky, in his 1990 book By Way of Deception, Israeli intelligence knew the specific time and location of the bombing that killed the Marines but only gave general information to the Americans before the attack, which was worthless.

Paull's thesis, International Terrorism: The Propaganda War, examines how the Netanyahu Institute used misinformation to exaggerate the terrorism threat. One of the main points of the misinformation was to link terrorism to the Soviet Union. In this way the Israelis could delegitimize the Palestinian Liberation Organization in the West as a puppet of Moscow.

A key conference slogan, 'The PLO-Moscow Connection,' for example, has helped to brake the momentum of the Camp David accords. Extending the Camp David spirit would have meant a partial recognition of the PLO's legitimacy by the Begin administration. The 'Moscow-PLO Connection' denied the PLO any semblance of legitimacy labeling it a mere puppet of Moscow, 'terrorists' manipulated by the KGB.

The Jerusalem Conference also helped to revive the anti-Soviet alliance between Israel and the United States by charging the Soviets with responsibility for 'funding, training, and equipping international terrorism.'  This new charge helped keep the United States and the Soviet Union at each other's throats, thus preventing them from agreeing on a diplomatic solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict in the Middle East.  (Paull, p. 95)

Although the Zionist masterminds behind the War on Terror no longer blame Russia for being behind international terrorism, their reason for blaming the Soviet Union, i.e. Russia, has not changed.

As Paull wrote:

The Israeli conference organizers in turn, could use [Sen. Henry] Jackson and the Commentary group around Podhoretz to help prevent a pro-Arab tilt in Washington, keep United States armaments flowing to Israel, and most important, maintain anti-Soviet hostility in Washington. Relaxation of superpower hostility could trigger a thaw in U.S.-Soviet relations, and a settlement in the Middle East which would include the Palestinians would then be conceivable. This was a development the Begin administration wished to avoid at all costs. (Paull, p. 16)

In 1979, the arch-terrorist Menachem Begin and his fellow Likud extremists wanted to "maintain anti-Soviet hostility in Washington" in order to prevent "a settlement in the Middle East which would include the Palestinians." 

Begin's Likud party is still in power in Israel.  Today, the Likud is headed by Benjamin Netanyahu, who hosted the conspiratorial terrorism conference back in 1979. This is why the Palestinians are still locked out of any political process and why the Zionist-controlled media continues to spew anti-Russian propaganda – four decades after the War on Terror was born at the conference at the Netanyahu Institute.
