Hillary Clinton’s “Final Solution” to the Persian Problem

To misunderstand the nature and threat of evil is to risk being blindsided by it . . . An evil unchecked is the prelude to genocide.

– Dr. Mordechai, The Ezekiel Option

There are over 70 million human beings living in Iran, 17.5 million of whom are under the age of fifteen. Hillary Clinton vowed to attack Iran and “totally obliterate” the majority of the Persian race in a furnace of primordial fire should the Iranian government attack Israel with nuclear weapons, which they do not now possess or are likely to for some time — if ever.

Hillary’s “final solution” to the Persian problem bests Adolf Hitler by a magnitude of ten.

Missing in Clinton’s campaign trail pandering to America’s pro-Israel lobbies and the mushrooming evangelical Christian Zionist movement is the “inconvenient truth” that Israel has the most modern and most deadly army in the Middle East thanks to an annual $3.5 billion in American aid — one third of the U.S. aid budget.

Israel is also a major nuclear power in the region — though it refuses to admit it — with up to 200 nuclear warheads and the inter-continental-range ballistic missiles to deliver them and, according to the US Congress Office of Technology Assessment, also has an undeclared offensive chemical and biological warfare program.

Israel, along with India and Pakistan are the only three nations not to have signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Iran is a signatory of the NNPT, by the way.

The most inconvenient truth, however, is that Israel has a 60-year history of attacking — with American-supplied armaments — any Arab country it perceives as a threat, nuclear-armed or slingshot-armed alike. Israel’s bombing of Iraq’s Osirak nuclear facility in 1981 comes to mind as an example of the former, its shelling of Gaza the latter.

Israel can and will “ preemptively defend” itself against Iran, the country that a February 2008 International Atomic Energy Agency report concluded has not diverted nuclear material to non-peaceful purposes. Unfortunately for the 70 million Persians in Hillary’s bombsight, Iran’s biggest liability is its president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad — but then the US is equally burdened.

So the real truth behind Clinton’s “final solution” to the Persian problem or John McCain’s “bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, Iran” off-key hyperbole is not simply a “David and Goliath” struggle for survival, but is instead a cynical exploitation of the unholy marriage of convenience between fanatical Jewish Zionists who want a Muslim-free Eretz Israel in order to fulfill Old Testament prophecy and bring about the first coming of their Messiah and fanatical Christian Zionists who want the entire Middle East in flames to fulfill New Testament prophecy and bring about the Second Coming of their Messiah.

Jewish Zionists need the money and the political clout of the Christian Zionists. Christian Zionists need the Semitism and the chutzpah of the Jewish Zionists. Politicians need the votes that both groups can deliver, which in religion-drenched America is a hefty consignment.

According to a 2006 Pew Research Center poll, fully 44 percent of Americans believe that “God gave the land that is now Israel to the Jewish people” and 36 percent believe the “creation of the state of Israel is a step toward the Second Coming of Jesus.”

Depending on which poll is the most accurate, there are between 105-135 million evangelical and born-again Christians in the United States. Of these Christians, a 2004 International Fellowship of Christians and Jews poll found that 31 percent identified US support for Israel as their “primary consideration” in selecting a presidential candidate, while 64 percent cited it as an “important factor.”

Predictably then, when Hillary Clinton or John McCain threaten to obliterate Iran, or any predominately Muslim country in the Middle East, with nuclear weapons, the primary audience for their saber rattling is not the Muslim “evildoers” but is, instead, the pro-Israel lobby and the Christian Zionist muscle in America who are willing to see the “ultimate evil” committed to further their ideological and eschatological agenda.

Nowhere does “ultimate evil” play a more prominent role than in the End Time machinations of two well-connected Christian Zionists, Tim LaHaye and John Hagee.

Tim LaHaye is best known as the coauthor of the blockbuster Left Behind series, which has sold over 60 million copies worldwide. The pulp fiction series takes the Book of Revelation as its inspiration and chronicles the tribulations that will occur between the Rapture of born-again Christians and the Second Coming of Jesus. The blood and viscera of millions of infidels and heretics — unrepentant Atheists, Jews, Muslims, and Catholics — are spattered on every page.

Tim LaHaye is least known as the founder and first president of the secretive Council for National Policy. The CNP was formed in 1981 as an umbrella organization to advance an ultra-conservative, right wing Christian agenda. LaHaye’s particular agenda items include replacing U.S. secular law with Old Testament biblical law and a Middle East foreign policy that expedites the Second Coming.

According to the New York Times, the CNP consists of “a few hundred of the most powerful conservatives in the country” who meet “behind closed doors at undisclosed locations . . . to strategize about how to turn the country to the right.” Though the membership of the CNP is a guarded secret, a list of those known to have been associated with it reads like a who’s who of Christian Zionists and neocon ideologues whose passion is to see the Middle East in flames and in chains.

A short list includes: George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, former Attorney Generals John Ashcroft and Alberto Gonzales, former U.N. ambassador John Bolton, the late Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, James Dobson, Phyllis Schlafly, and Oliver North—the guy who sold weapons to Iran using Israel as the middleman.

Do not be blindsided. The CNP is a major player in domestic and foreign policy decisions and the “evil” that results.

John Hagee, televangelist and pastor of the 19,000-member Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas, is the founder of Christian United for Israel. Hagee formed CUFI in 2005 following the publication of his book, The Jerusalem Countdown: A Warning to the World, which sports a mushroom cloud on its cover and argues for a pre-emptive nuclear strike on Iran to fulfill God’s plan for both Israel and the West.

Hagee’s theology — and vision of the future — focuses on selected apocalyptic passages from the Old Testament. He believes that a nuclear strike against Iran will cause Arab nations to unite under Russian leadership, as outlined in the Book of Ezekiel, leading to an “inferno [that] will explode across the Middle East, plunging the world toward Armageddon.” Consequently, CUFI exists to set the fires of the Apocalypse and bring about the Rapture and the Second Coming, but it needs Jewish Zionists to strike the match.

Christians United for Israel is the evangelical equivalent of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the powerful pro-Israel lobby courted and placated by every American politician who has national aspirations. John McCain, Hillary Clinton, and Barak Obama have each pledged their fealty to AIPAC.

John Hagee is not without his own short list of beltway benefactors. The list includes, but is not limited to: George W. Bush, House Minority Whip Roy Blunt, Senator Joe Lieberman — who called Hagee an “Ish Elokim,” a man of God — and John McCain who was “very honored by Pastor John Hagee’s endorsement [for president].”

When Christian Zionists with the stature of LaHaye and Hagee shill for fanatical Jewish Zionists who are promoting the ethic cleansing of Eretz Israel for biblical or nationalistic reasons or the pre-emptive “defensive” nuking of Iran, politicians with the stature of Hillary Clinton and John McCain, along with a hefty consignment of the electorate, are their willing dupes. It’s just the politics of religion as usual in America.

But Jewish Zionists need to understand that the difference between Christian Zionists and Muslim suicide bombers is scale, a nuclear warhead versus a backpack bomb, and a willingness to let others do the killing — and the dying — for them.

Jewish Zionists should also keep in mind that Christian Zionists have no intention of being around when the sands of the Middle East are turned to glass in a furnace of primordial fire. They will have been Raptured and out of harm’s way in Paradise. Their Bible tells them so.

    Oh for the good old days, when one judged a Presidential candidate on their promise(s) of what they will do for America, not on what they will do for Israel.

    In politics you get what you pay for. Judging from Clinton’s behavior she gets a lot of her money from Zionists. I remember when she was running for Senate here in New York for the first time. She visited Kingston, New York to give a speech. In order to be able to say she visited the “Holocaust Museum” (we do not have a Holocaust Museum) she had a banner saying “Holocaust Museum” put over the sign on the “Maritime Museum”. You do not do this unless you need the votes and money.

    Lol. If there were “105-135 million” born againers or evangelicals in the US they certainly have no clout on the social mores of the nation. Polls do not measure public opinion – they manufacture public opinion, or try to. As in Bubba says “Gee, if that many people think that way I should to.” Bubba changes his opinion a lot.

    As for Iran not having nuclear warhead capability – not so fast there bucko. Iran was wheeling and dealing with France, the Netherlands, China, USSR, US, etc. in the 1970s for nuclear know-how. I would bet my sweet bippy Iran has been a nuclear power for a long time.

    Hagee’s 19,000-member Cornerstone church may sound like a lot but it’s only 1% of San Antonio population. And half of those folks probably don’t believe half of what Hagee says – sort of like Obama who spent 20 years not listening closely to Rev. Wright sermons.

    No worry about those millions of copies of Left Behind – millions of those copies are bought up by religious organizations who pass them out to the flock who then take them home, and depending on the country, put them on the bookshelf unread or use the pages as kindling fire.

    “Hillary’s “final solution” to the Persian problem…” “…McCain’s “bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, Iran” off-key hyperbole…” Jewish Zionists Christian Zionists religion-drenched America…” That’s good … I used to write like that, when I was skeered.

    These people – zealots and pols/Zionists and Christians – are not using their positions to push End Times. They herd their sheeple and amass fortunes – in no way do they want to leave money behind, and there is no profit to nuking Iran.

    very interesting piece by Weitzel. i also think that zionism being an ideology (and all isms contain apsolutisms) will evanesce.
    future generations may be astounded that we (christian/communist lands) have rewarded and egged on such an anti-human ideology.
    the fact that yahweh has not given (given, and not promised) ashkenazim, mizrahim, and sephardim at least a continent of their own, proves that all of it is a scam/sham/ruse.
    even if zionists obtain either of the two regions ‘promised’ them , it would be still too poor, too small, and too vulnerable. thank u.

    Mr.Weitzel,

    The last two paragraphs of your writing shows that you consider the zionist Jews as a misinformed legitimate entity! Not only that is not an accurate representation of them, it is a very harmful formulation.

    Also, you did not mention that, after a very private meeting between Obama and the Israeli foreign minister — in the US, right before the Pennsylvania primary — Obama said: ” …when it comes to nuclear capabilities of Iran, all options are on the table…” He said these racist words the same night that Clinton said those racist words! (ABC News presidential debate in Pennssylvania in early May)

    To Mike McNiven,

    For Obama negotiations is also an option. Far from the “racist” posturing of Clinton.

    even a prez is just a human being who’s profession is politics.
    and presidents of US, as far as i can discern, do not rule US; US is governed by the ruling class; or ab. 5-10mn plutocrats.
    i pay no attention what obama says. i pay attention to facts.
    it seems to me every prez waged at least one war during his tenure.
    ok, the hell with predictions; knowing the past is enough for me.
    we also know that every war ever waged by US ruling class was based on lies.
    how else can u slaughter people? can u have truth and slaughter?
    can u have prudence, justice, nobility, good intentions while killing mns?
    of course, US ruling class does not count the people it slays directly or via proxi; only their own. thank u.

  8. Edwin Pell said on May 14th, 2008 at 9:37am #

    Bozhidar I agree the US has a ruling class but I would say no more than 1 million plutocrats and even they have a hierarchy. Let’s make three groups the one million, then the 100,000 most powerful and then the 10,000 most powerful. It would be interesting to have information on each of these groups. Members, wealth, primary residence, schooling, family relationships, beliefs, religion, age, health, etc…

    ROFLMAO! Holy brain damage Batman! Maybe “God” will keep the “American” economy afloat for the next century. And maybe “God” will keep the US “mission” in the Middle East from turning into a catastrophe (I mean more than it already is). And maybe “God” will keep the arctic caps from melting like watercolors in the rain. Then again, maybe “He” won’t.

    “God is not on our side because he hates idiots also.”

    To Deadbeat,

    Thank you for reminding me to say that Clinton’s racism does not make Obama’s racism permissible! Obama’s praise for Ronald Reagan is proof enough. His sick intention to bomb the most impoverished parts of Pakistan, is another. Take another look at Fanon.

    ( Clinton has suggested the possibility of the same imperialistic negotiations with the Islamic Republic of Iran that Obama is suggesting too! )

    Great writing of the most obvious. We can only hope Obama’s campaign rhetoric regarding AIPAC and Zionism is a means to garner the vote needed to win office. Where theres smoke theres fire. Pastor Wright may be extremist in his views of the Zionist-Global conspiriacy but it still renders considerable accuracy. Hopefully Obama balances the weight of both ideologies.

    If they have not got control of Obama, they will. If it looks as though they will not succeed in corruption then they will make him ‘fall off the train’. Whatever happens, you can guarantee that they will keep their stranglehold firm. Live off the grid as much as you can – continue to be free thinking and spread the truth – respect to all.
