By Joaquin Flores – Center for Syncretic Studies


………………….The US’s Irrational Idealism is Israel’s Realism

Israel through AIPAC, and also through Neo-cons, controls much of US policy formulation at the level of think tanks and advocacy, and implementation at the congressional and executive level, for the Middle-East.

IR theory indicates that the US is not acting rationally, and is acting out of a professed and irrational fidelity to Israel. Strangely, the US acts rationally in other areas; which is seperate and distinct, as discussed above from questions surrounding ‘right’ or ‘wrong’.

The alliance is irrational because the US is weaker and more vulnerable as a result, and is pushed to take actions in the region against both regional (Iran) and neighboring (Russia) hegemons. The US is not projected to emerge successful in these confrontations in terms of its own sovereign interests. It will result in a real (and not simulated) power vacuum which is aimed at rolling back Iranian hegemony in favor of Israeli.

The aim is likely to create a single and large Israeli presence, whether in state form or informal forms, situated between a friendly Saudi Arabia and Turkey. The plan to achieve this is popularly termed the ”Yinon Plan”.

The term “Yinon Plan” refers to an article published in February 1982 in the journal Kivounim (“Guidance” in Hebrew), published by the World Zionist Organization, based in Jerusalem. The article, entitled A Strategy for Israel in the 80′s, is authored by Oded Yinon, an analyst and former official of the Israeli Foreign Ministry. It considers that it is in the interests of the Jewish state to foster the creation of a Greater Israel in the collapsing of the Arab world. To achieve this will mean the creation of weak and mutually antagonistic mini-states too divided to effectively oppose it.

Of course this term reflects a more public understanding of one of several possible or likely Israeli plans. While it is most definitely referred to something else within military and intelligence circles in Israel, it is also likely to generally reflect this basic concept of creating a large hegemonic sphere “From the Brook of Egypt to the Euphrates.”

A nearly identical plan was submitted to Benjamin Netanyahu titled A Clean Break : A New Strategy for Securing the Realm. This Israeli policy paper was written by Richard Perle and the study group on “A new Israeli strategy towards the year 2000″ (Institute for Advanced Strategic and Political Studies) which also included James Colbert, Charles Fairbanks Jr., Douglas Feith, Robert Loewenberg, Jonathan Torop, David Wurmser and Meyrav Wurmser. It was also published again in the journal the Institute for Advanced Strategic and Political Studies, in July 2006. It argues both for a break with the philosophy behind the Oslo Accords and for a regional hegemonic plan which mirrors the Yinon plan.

After obtaining a genuine regional hegemonic status not reliant on US support, Israel will be well positioned to resolve any differences with prior global opponents, even along win-win lines. It will place Israel chiefly in control of the water and energy resources in all the lands west of Iran. To do this also means breaking Iran into about five weaker and manageable states. This will involve the devolution of the Iranian identity into its constituent parts.


The US will have mostly spent its capacity to project into the middle-east, and instead will grapple with maintaining its NATO hegemony over Europe. Other results from Israel’s realist strategy are difficult to project, and involve too many then-evolving variables to accurately project or succinctly list.

What is clear is that without Israeli control over the US’s middle-east policy, it would still be an Empire oriented power which would employ a combination of idealist rhetoric and realist strategic planning to maintain. But its policy in the middle-east region would be quite different, and would likely see a different alignment of powers aimed at checking Russia and China.

Along its current course, the US is likely to lose to the Syria-Iran-Russia alliance in the region. If Chinese efforts figure in, this defeat is certain. …………………………..much more here..
