Wiki Leaks : The Emperor is Naked
- Super User
When the Lebanese editor of Alakhabr Newspaper was asked why Julian Assange chose his paper to publish the documents, his answer was simple. No other paper in the region would dare to do so.
If we keep aside the morality and method in which these documents have been leaked and how can Gaga `s fans get access to all these files without being noticed, and if we all agree that Julian was not selective in his revelations, then we might reach some conclusion of the sole beneficiary of such documents in the Arab world at least, who is none but Israel, specially since he was not branded anti-Semite and escaped punishment in Europe.
The question in the Arab street is Why is there no Mention of Israel??
It is premature to judge Julian`s motives behind the expose and what he is trying to achieve, but what is certain is that there are more documents and we all are waiting eagerly to know since we believe in the era of gossip and curiosity killed the cat.
What is considered a fact is that US missions conspire and many sabotage operations carried out by US missions all over the world .
The first victim of these leaks is the Shiite Sunni fragile harmony in the region, as it shows the double face of many Arab capitals in dealing with sensitive issues and neighboring Iran, despite the denying of many of such gossips and baseless allegations .
Most of the documents in Arab eyes served Israel and the US in their preparation to attack Iran, whether it was Iran\'s involvement in Iraq, Lebanon and the threat of its Nuclear ambition in region. Israel was quick to react and avail the opportunity by saying many Arab leaders support her view of a military action against Iran to end its nuclear program.
The documents, if they are to be believed as published by the Lebanese newspaper shows the hidden agenda of many Arab capitals Egypt in countering Iran. Morocco cut relations with Iran in exchange for Saudi oil , Saudi Arabia and the funding of terrorists and the fear of the Shia Triangle. Lebanese leaders of 14 march conspiring with the US against Syria and Lebanese resistance force, the Hezbollah , the Coup in Mauritania with the help of the Israeli Mossad, the Fear in Egypt of Iran, the Libyan president and his bodyguards and the issue of transfer of power to his sons, the transfer of power in Algeria and the potential of anti American forces, Yemen\'s collaboration with the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) in tracking Al Qaeda fighters in Yemen, Qatar using Al jazeera network as a bargaining tool, and, more importantly, the defamation of the Turkish president to name a few.
All these revelations, according to Arab scholars, serves Israel\'s policy in the Middle East and there is a strong belief that these documents were handed over by the Israel lobby in the US, the AIPAC, which is the main source for these files since most of it is related to Middle East and no one has more access to it but the AIPAC.
The reasons for such an action, according to Gordon Duff, are many; like discrediting (US President Barack) Obama\'s foreign policy, accusations involving Turkey, now feuding with Israel over the killing of Turkish citizens on the Mavi Marmara, now recognized as a purely humanitarian mission. These accusations against Turkey may include weapons being supplied to terrorists in Iraq, a fanciful abuse of reality.
What will not be reported, if this story is leaked either through Wikileaks or the other Israeli sources, Debka..Stratfor..FamilySecurityMatters.org..or the infamous IsraelNationalNews.com is Israel’s 40 years of complicity in the very acts they now accuse Turkey of.
More importantly, is the issue of blaming Turkey for the actions of the terrorist group, PKK, long funded by Israel and now claimed to be allied to Al Qaeda, is vital to Israel’s strategy against Turkey.
Expect Pakistan to be hit, as usual. An Islamic nuclear power with a top rate million man army that outclasses Israel hands down, Pakistan, primary competitor for US aid dollars, a country that actually has agreements with the United States and real troops fighting alongside Americans will get their usual Wikileaks bashing.
Many observers would like Julian to release those documents related the killing of Rafik Al Hariri , the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians from their home lands by Israel , Israeli preparation for an attack on Iran and the involvement of Mossad\'s role in Iraq in Christian cleansing, and the involvement of Israel in the preparation for a water war in Africa between Egypt and Ethiopia in the near future and the role of Israel in the partition of Sudan .
The vast majority in the Arab street knows the answer to these issues, but have no alternatives but to face the consequences or the fall out of these leaks in the Arab capitals, since the Mata is of no Hari.
