From the "Yinon Plan" to the "Ya’alon Strategy"

While the United States on the one hand, and France and Turkey on the other, are trying to reshape the Levant in their own way, Alfredo Jalife-Rahme highlights the continuity between the 1982 Oded Yinon Plan and Moshe Ya’alon’s present-day strategy. While endorsing the vision of both plans, Israel continues to pursue its own balkanization agenda. Historically, Israel has always sought to dismember the countries surrounding her.

"Syria will fall apart, in accordance with its ethnic and religious structure, into several states such as in present day Lebanon, so that there will be a Shi’ite Alawi state along its coast, a Sunni state in the Aleppo area, another Sunni state in Damascus hostile to its northern neighbor, and the Druzes who will set up a state, maybe even in our Golan, and certainly in the Hauran and in northern Jordan. (...) This state of affairs will be the guarantee for peace and security in the area in the long run, and that aim is already within our reach today."
Oded Yinon, “A strategy for Israel in the Nineteen Eighties”, Kivunum, translated by Israel Shahak, February 1982.

Moshe Yaalon, chief of military intelligence (1992-1998), IDF Chief of Staff (2002-05), Likud (2009-13), Defense Minister of the Netanyahu cabinet (since 2013).

During the five-day trip he made to the United States, Israeli defense minister Moshe Ya’alon told Steve Inskeep, one of the hosts of Morning Edition on National Public Radio that "MidEast borders ‘absolutely’ will change" [1].

Ya’alon follows to the letter the balkanization process of the "Yinon Plan", named after a former Israeli Foreign Ministry official [2]: "the borders have already changed" since Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is no longer in a position to unify his country and that he "only controls 25% of Syria", which creates a problem that Israel "will have to pay." How sad!

According to Mr. Ya’alon’s antiquated views, there are countries with a real history and others whose borders were artificially drawn in 1916 by France and Britain under the Sykes-Picot Agreement to divide up the ruins of the Ottoman Empire.

Moshe Ya’alon states obvious truths such as "Egypt will remain Egypt" or "Libya was a recent creation, a Western creation arising from the First World War. It’s the same for Syria and Iraq, two artificial nation-states (sic!), and what we are currently witnessing is the collapse of the Western concept. "

And what about the "New Israel", is it not a creation of the Rothschild slave bankers and the law firm run by Lloyd George, who later became Prime Minister of Great Britain?

After its establishment in Russia and its subsequent persecution in 1883, and in 1903, the Wandering Zionism toyed with the idea of setting up "artificially" exogenous settlements in countries within the Anglo-Saxon sphere of influence such as Canada, Australia, East Africa, the south-western part of Texas (sic!), Angola and Uganda [3].

But hasn’t finance Zionism - a Zionism even deadlier than its irredentist version – already drawn all of the aforementioned countries into the Anglo-Saxon sphere of influence, in the course of the twenty-first century, through global banking deregulation?

In another interview with Charlie Rose, Ya’alon lashed out at Turkish President Erdogan, accusing him of being a "well-known supporter" of the Muslim Brotherhood [4].

The Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported that Ya’alon "did not specify whether Israel’s borders, which were also (sic) traced by the Western powers after the First World War, will change" [5].

Ya’alon heaped more racist insults on the Palestinians, going so far as to raise the outrageous possibility of an "ethnic transfer". The purpose of Ya’alon’s trip to the US was to placate the Obama team after the questionable remarks directed by Naftali Bennett, leader of fundamentalist right-wing religious party The Jewish Home, against US Secretary of State John Kerry, who linked the rise of the Islamic State to the non-resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. On a previous occasion, Mr. Kerry had accused Israel of being almost a "pariah state." Almost!?

Haaretz further reported that Ya’alon was "humiliated (sic) publicly" by the United States which prevented him from meeting with certain senior Obama cabinet officials: Vice President Joe Biden, John Kerry and national security adviser Susan Rice.

Concurring, as usual, The Economist - owned by the Financial Times, which is part of the Pearson Group, a group that controls the BlackRock bank, the world’s largest investment bank run by double US-Israeli national Larry Fink [6] – stated that most of the three million Syrian refugees are contemplating the “loss of their country" [7].

The government of Bashar al-Assad controls 25% of Syria and most of the rest is in the hands of the jihadists associated with the Islamic Caliphate (whose capital, Rakka, today is held by an international pack of foreign-controlled mercenaries). However, a relatively small portion of the territory, located in the north-east of the country on the border with Turkey, is still controlled by Syrian Kurds whose symbol has become the martyr city of Kobani, where the Islamic State reportedly deployed chemical weapons [8], a possibility "oddly" obscured by the propaganda machine of the United States and Israel (the misnamed Hasbara [9].

There are other enclaves, like Aleppo, on the outskirts of Damascus and the Golan Heights (where Israel plays the Al-Nusra card), which are in the hands of strange coalitions baptized by the "West": Army free Syrian (sic), Al-Nusra, al-Qaeda or the Islamic State (IS).

The balkanization plan developed by the Israelis Yinon and Ya’alon is progressing at great speed thanks to this unreal entity called the caliphate of the Islamic State, whose tentacles extend to the Maghreb (the western part of the Arab world and North Africa) in terms of balkanisation [10] and is modeled on Libya.

Would IS jihadists by any chance be serving as the tool to neatly carve up the Arab world, according to the plans drawn up by Yinon and Ya’alon, plans whose scope encompasses Yemen? [11]

As certain simplistic reports would have one believe, which is not typical of Israeli-Anglo-Saxon subterfuges, it would seem that the US planes delivering weapons to the Syrian Kurds besieged in Kobani "made a mistake" since the weapons ended up in the hands of IS jihadists [12] Really!

No one - not even the Yinon/Ya’alon duo, the jihadists of the Islamic State or US strategists (the "Brzezinski/Rice/Peters/Clark/Wright" formula) [13] - is more aware of the perfidy of such balkanization plans than the tenacious Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who has his own agenda regarding the Kurds, a group supported by Israel and NATO, which represents 15-25% of the population of Turkey, a country today on the verge of implosion. Erdoğan dubbed them the "new Lawrence of Arabia" in reference to the former British spy, accusing them of being the unexcelled champions balkanization [14].

Israel is gearing up for its umpteenth war against Hezbollah in Lebanon, also about to implode, while at a higher strategic level, the balkanization strategy of Tel Aviv’s propaganda machine is implemented by MEMRI. With the extraordinary progress made by the IS jihadists, the Washington-based center - founded by Yigal Carmon, an Israeli military spy, and Meyrav Wurmser, a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute with links to the Zionist fundamentalist Likud party - can more forward on the issue regarding the "new order (sic) in the Middle East" focusing on four areas for the exclusivela benefit of "Greater Israel". These four areas are:

- 1) the nuclear dispute with Iran (which does not have the right to possess nuclear weapons unlike the "chosen" people of Israel);
- 2) the Arab-Israeli conflict (frozen);
- 3) the Turkish-Kurdish process (sic) (implosion of Turkey and expansion of the "Great Kurdistan") and
- 4) the conflict between the Shia and the Sunni (repeat at the theological level "30-year war?").

For aesthetic reasons, I will leave aside the extremely serious accusation made by President Putin that "The United States is promoting terrorism financing the jihadists of the Islamic State" [15].

The balkanization of the "Greater Middle East" and the "New Order" that that will ensue, are they not the consequence of the Yinon/Ya’alon plans as consolidated by the "Brzezinski/Rice/Peters/Clark/Wright formula" plus the irresistible advance of their puppet jihadists?
