If someone had told me even a month ago that the messianic Greater Israel project from Biblical Genesis has any relevance whatsoever to modern geopolitics, I would have laughed my head off because it sounds like a looney conspiracy theory. But I was astounded when I heard that it is a serious matter from Larry Wilkerson who had worked for Colin Powell during the Bush administration. But the Greater Israel project is described in some detail by a document by Oded Yinon for Israeli strategy in the 1980s — and one must remember that the neoconservative movement, which I call the Zionist neoconservative movement to emphasize that it arose around this period from the Zionist movement.
COL. LAWRENCE WILKERSON, FMR. CHIEF OF STAFF TO COLIN POWELL: I think that what you have is acolytes, disciples, if you will, of the extreme right wing in Israel, led by Netanyahu at the present time, working towards what has always been laughed at, really, by realists in the world and others, an ultimate strategy of the right wing in Israel to build a greater Israel. We’re not just talking about the West Bank and Jerusalem; we’re talking about eventually Jordan, much of Syria, the Sinai, and so forth being the greater Israel. And the way you do this is you destabilize the Arab nations around Israel. They’re doing quite well with Lebanon right now, with the Syrian refugees pouring in; been doing really well with Jordan, with Iraqi refugees first, now Syrians adding to Jordan’s instability. But what they want is they want no Iraqs, no Syrias, no Egypts, for that matter, and eventually no Saudi Arabias, and ultimately, too, no Irans that’s cohesive, that’s got a national purpose, that’s large, fields major military forces, and can threaten Israel. So the way you do that is you divide and conquer. You get them into condition like Syria is in now, in a civil war, and you wind up with little statelets afterwards, and you don’t have a big, huge Arab country capable of doing all the things big countries can do. And ultimately what you have is you have Israel as the hegemon in the region, and a much greater Israel, and you have all these Arab countries fighting amongst themselves and broken up into little pieces that constitute no threat towards Israel. I would hasten to add that what you’re going to get coming out of those little pieces, however, is what we got on 9/11, what we got in Australia, or, rather, on their tragic day when they lost so many citizens in Bali, or as in Spain. What you’re going to have is you’re going to have enhanced terrorist capabilities all over the world, spawned in this massive area of conflict, which is conducive to Israel’s security, allegedly, but which in reality, because we’re really leaving the time of conventional armed forces waging battle on huge battlefields–what we’re into, I think, is a time of the Thirty Years’ War, where we’ve got all kinds of little princes running around in fiefdoms and fighting and so forth and husbanding their resources. And the principal means of attacking states like the United States or like Russia, for that matter, or any of the bigger countries is going to be terrorism. And this would be the spawning ground for it. So I don’t see this as being a fulfillment that’s positive. I see this as being a very dangerous situation that these people like Graham, like McCain, like Netanyahu and others are trying to foment in the Middle East so that they allegedly produce better security and a greater territory for Israel.
Now this is an account that partially describes the Biblical Genesis Greater Israel. I have disagreed with Col. Wilkerson because I do not believe the official account of 9/11 which he feels a need to protect for some reason. What I believe instead is that 9/11 was planned by Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz and the Zionist neoconservatives of PNAC who include some of these ‘acolytes’ Wilkerson is talking about with the help of Israel. In other words the foreign policy coup was planned as a consequence of the 9/11 operation itself. And that plan included, as Wesley Clark describes from his accidental meeting in Pentagon ten days after 9/11 regime change plans for seven countries including Iraq and Iran. A similar plan was offered on television by Ehud Barak immediately after 9/11 as well. So this Greater Israel is the primary reason to have continual war for the past decade. Wars that totally destroyed Iraq, leveled it, killed 4000 American soldiers and 1.6 million Iraqis. And that just began this process.
