U.S. foreign policy shapes events in every corner of the globe. Nowhere is this truer than in the Middle East, a region of recurring instability and enormous strategic importance. Most importantly, the Bush administration’s attempt to transform the region into a community of democracies has helped produce a resilient insurgency in Iraq, a sharp rise in world oil prices, terrorist bombings in Madrid, London and Amman, and open warfare in Gaza and Lebanon. With so much at stake, all countries need to understand the forces that drive U.S. Middle East policy. The US national interest should be the primary objective of American foreign policy. For the past, several decades, however, and especially since the Six-Day War in 1967, a recurring feature and arguably the central focus of U.S. Middle East policy has been its relationship with Israel. One might assume that the bond between the two countries is based on shared strategic interests or compelling moral imperatives.Instead, the overall thrust of US policy in the region is due primarily to US domestic politics and especially to the activities of the “Israel lobby.” Other special-interest groups have managed to skew U.S. foreign policy in directions they favored, but no lobby has managed to divert U.S. foreign policy as far from what the American national interest would otherwise suggest, while simultaneously convincing Americans that U.S. and Israeli interests are essentially identical.
United States also provides Israel with consistent diplomatic support. Since 1982, the US has vetoed 32 Security Council resolutions critical of Israel, more than the total number of vetoes cast by all the other Security Council members. It blocks the efforts of Arab states to put Israel’s nuclear arsenal on the IAEA’sagenda. The US comes to the rescue in wartime and takes Israel’s side when negotiating peace. The Nixon administration protected it from the threat of Soviet intervention and re-supplied it during the October War. The combination of unwavering support for Israel and the related effort to spread ‘democracy’ throughout the region has inflamed Arab and Islamic opinion and jeopardized not only US security but that of much of the rest of the world. This situation has no equal in American political history. Why has the US been willing to set aside its own security and that of many of its allies in order to advance the interests of another state?
All these scenarios and the strong influence of Israeli Lobby in US remained unquestioned for past many years. Another example of US-Israel relation lies in the development of American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). The core objective of this lobby is to mold US foreign policy in a pro-Israel direction. Over the past 25 years, pro-Israel forces have established a commanding presence in some of the most prominent U.S. Think Tanks. But it is a two-way partnership whose benefits to the United States have been substantial. U.S.-Israeli security cooperation dates back to heights of the Cold War, when the Jewish state came to be seen in Washington as a bulwark against Soviet influence in the Middle East and a counter to Arab nationalism. Although the world has changed since then, the strategic logic for the U.S.-Israeli alliance has not. Although the average American may not know why the U.S. is so unpopular around the world, every single person in the Middle East is able to discuss at length the cluster munitions and other American weapons that Israel drops in civilian areas maiming and killing small children as well as the American made jets and bombs that routinely kill Arabs. This showed that how America is a puppet in the hands of Jews and the wars we examine on Muslim states in the name of democracy or for the re-habilitation of human rights and humanitarian intervention is only for the sake of Israel. An excessive bombing on Iraq, Palestine, Libya and massacres of Muslims is not just a war of rights or freedom. This is something we can call precautionary steps to avoid a vast destruction. Killing of Muslims is a pre-conditioned act by Israelis before they are destroyed.
This notion has a linkage with the Quran teachings and being Muslim we have a firm belief that what is mentioned in Quran and Sunnah is eternal and would be accomplished for sure. Not only Muslims, but Jews also firmly believe that what is written in Quran and narrated by Hadith will surely be happen. As narrated by Hadith of Prophet (SAWW),
“There can be no Resurrection until Muslims will fight the Jews. Muslims will fight (kill) the Jews and they will hide rocks and trees. (At that time) Stone and the tree will be heard” O Muslims! O servants of Allah! there Jew behind me, come kill him ‘, except GHARQAD TREE (not speak), indeed it is a Jewish tree “. (No. 7523, narrated by Muslim). At this point, the Jews are being widely planted Gharqad on Illegal State of Israel as a preparation for the Muslims in the end days. In 2005, Israel has built a wall in an area that appears clear is not the territory. With the construction of the wall, it is clear that Israel has repeated the history of Nazi atrocities during the Second World War, when the Jews were confined in the Ghetto. But Jews destined for such a fate has been told by the Prophet. As a record, “They will not fight against you all together except in villages stretching or behind walls” (Al-HASHR: 14).
There are some signs which cannot be denied and if we analyze the things keenly then there are gestures of conclusions for the nature and every reality is near its end point.
