The Israeli-Hamas conflict is a continuation of the 9/11 Plot
by Paul Craig Roberts on 03 Nov 2023 0 Comment

This is not a conspiracy theory.  It is the most likely explanation we have of the information at this time. The Hamas October 7 attack on Israel was the opening gun of a plot devised by US neo-conservatives and Netanyahu to renew the US attack on Hezbollah’s suppliers in behalf of Greater Israel. Greater Israel is a Zionist belief that Israel comprises the territory from the Nile in Egypt to the Euphrates in Iraq. The purpose of 9/11 was to launch under the guise of a “war on terror” the wars that the American neoconservatives had called for in their publications and that General Wesley Clark told us about against Israel’s enemies in the Middle East.


The purpose of Washington’s “war on terror” was to destroy Hezbollah’s suppliers–Iraq, Syria and Iran. Israel and the neo-conservatives want these three countries destroyed because they supply Hezbollah with money and weapons that permits Hezbollah to successfully repeal Israel’s attempts to occupy southern Lebanon. Israel needs the water resources in southern Lebanon. With the Iraq, Syrian, and Iranian regimes destroyed, avenues are opened to Greater Israel.


In other words, there was never a “war on terror.” There was a war devised by US neocons against Israel’s opponents. And that is precisely what the war on Hamas is about.


It is impossible to breach the Israeli security barrier without setting off alarms. The plot called for the barrier to be stood down. What most likely happened is this: Israeli agents who have infiltrated Hamas were instructed to sell Hamas on the attack by promising the ability to disable the barrier and surprise the Israelis. Netanyahu and the neocons sacrificed Israeli lives for the outrage about Israeli deaths, rapes, and Israeli babies with cut off heads. This would gain Israel support for destroying the remnants of Palestine and incorporating all of Palestine into Israel, thus ending any prospect of a two-state solution and simultaneously settling Netanyahu’s legal and political problems by making him a hero who consolidated Palestine under Israel.


But the plot has wider aims, which were revealed by the almost instant appearance on the scene of US aircraft carrier task forces, the 101st Airborne Division followed by US Marines and Special Forces. Israel, of course, does not need these American forces in order to destroy Gaza.  Pundits, reflecting either a lack of imagination or serving a disinformation function, have rationalized the presence of the US forces as a warning and protective buffer between Israel and Hezbollah /Iran.


Think about this rationale. If Netanyahu understood that the plot might bring Iran /Hezbollah and even Syria and Iraqi volunteers down on Israel’s head, would he have sponsored a plot that initiated war with Hamas? The answer is not unless he and the US neo-conservatives want to bring Iran /Hezbollah down on Israel’s head. And they do, which is why the US forces are in the area. A Hezbollah attack on Israel gives the neocons, who control the US State and Defense Departments and National Security Council the excuse they need to finish the real purpose of the “war on terror”– to destroy Syria and Iran. Iraq was taken out, but Syria and Iran remain in Israel’s way. 


Will this plot succeed?


The plot is premised on drawing Hezbollah and Iran into the war. If they are not drawn in – and Putin is doing his best to prevent them from being drawn in – the US neo-conservatives don’t have an excuse to widen the war. The neo-conservatives would be tempted to go for a false flag attack that would provide an excuse, but it would be risky and not compare to Hezbollah troops pouring into Israel and missiles raining down on Israel from Iran. If the neocons use a false flag attack, the result of Putin’s efforts will be to take the initiative, the element of surprise, from Iran /Hezbollah and to give the initiative to the neo-conservatives.  Thus, Putin’s efforts to contain the conflict would turn out to be counterproductive.


The Israeli-Hamas conflict is running into trouble with the US Democrats. Their “diversity-multicultural-open border” policy has brought Muslims into the US and into the Democrat Party and members of Congress. Someone is getting through the neocon barrier around Biden as we can see from Biden’s efforts to dampen down the conflict, delay Israel’s invasion of Gaza, and warn Israel away from repeating Hamas’ atrocities. If Biden succeeds in restraining Netanyahu and Putin succeeds in restraining Iran /Hezbollah, the plot will have to settle for second best.


What would second best be. It would be bombing the Gazans out of Gaza into the Sinai Dessert into tent cities. Israelis are already talking about this. In other words, the Gazans who survive would become refugees outside of Gaza. That would only leave a few isolated Palestinian villages in the West Bank, from which the remaining Palestinians would be driven out by the Israeli settlers.


So it is possible for Israel to destroy Gaza without invading, which, as matters stand, is the trigger for Iran /Hezbollah’s entry into the conflict. What we don’t know is whether Putin can keep Iran /Hezbollah restrained if the consequence is the demise of Gaza and all hope for Palestinians.


We also don’t know if Biden and the Democrats can prevent the Republicans, who are now aligned with the neoconservatives in behalf of Israel, from egging on the war. 


Many Republicans, such as House Speaker Mike Johnson, are evangelicals who worship Israel more than God. Netanyahu and American Evangelicals are invoking Biblical prophecies to stir Israelis and Americans into eschatological insanity. Biden is discredited, and polls show that his public support is too low to permit his reelection.


Trump was recently described by the Israeli newspaper Haaretz as “the most pro-Israel President in history.” This leaves us with the question: Will Putin /Biden’s attempts to contain the conflict prevail or will the Republican /evangelical /neo-conservative /Netanyahu efforts to widen the conflict prevail? Time will tell.
