How Wikileaks Is Effecting American-Israeli Relations

By Hannah McKale | Desert Peace | December 18, 2010

The first and most important question to ask when approaching events on the geopolitical spectrum is to first ask the question, who is to benefit? In the case of the most recent Wikileaks dump that occurred at the end of November, the most obvious party with something to gain from the files and cables exposed is Israel. American and Israel relations have been quite close ever since the end of the second world war.

When the news first broke that Wikileaks would be making another massive dump of information, people could not help but wonder what it may be. Now, it has been revealed to the public, and while it is not nearly quite as scathing as a video of soldiers slaughtering innocent civilians, there is still a definite agenda behind the release of these embassy cables. The cables were between American embassies and embassies from a variety of Middle Eastern countries, such as Saudi Arabia and Israel.

A majority of the cables pertain to Iran and potential military actions against the country. Who has been calling for a precision military strike against Iran for months now, if not years? You guessed it. Israel, and at least a portion of the United States Government wishes to bring the surrounding region against Iran. While the overall image of the American government is tarnished a great deal by these leaks, Israels is not affected whatsoever.

While the US is forced to deal with scathing leaked information such as its meddling in Argentinian affairs, Israel’s own agenda is only gaining ground. Some have even postulated a potential Mossad or CIA connection to Julian Assange and Wikileaks.

According to the former Pakistani Chief of Intelligence, Hamid Gul, Wikileaks is designed to act as a controlled release of information, and disinformation designed to manipulate public opinion of Washington, and Iran.

Israel has cause for a strike against Iran in order to curtail its nuclear capabilities. The government of both America and Israel claim that Iran’s agenda for nuclear power will inevitably lead to a nuclear confrontation given that Iran acquires nuclear weaponry. This past August, the Iranian Busherh reactor was reportedly attacked by a virus which was said to be deployed against the installation by a government organization. Israel was fingered as the main culprit in this instance.

Israel and America have always maintained a close relationship in leadership. Both are proponents of the War on Terror, and both are also keenly interested in the Middle Eastern occupation. With Iran remaining one of the few independent states in the Middle Eastern area, Israel is looking to turn the rest of the Islamic world against Iran by using an indirect approach through information warfare. The most horrifying negative aspect of this most recent Wikileaks dump is the opportunity it gives the government to claim security measures are required for cyberspace. It was not entirely surprising how hostile some of the talking heads of the mainstream media appeared to be against Wikileaks, when it is exposing government corruption these imbeciles demand punishment for Assange, the shutdown of Wikileaks, and better control of information on the web.

It appears that the leadership schools of both the United States and Israel both have their agendas in full throttle in this Wikileaks situation. While Israel’s agenda of dominating the Middle East’s future is coaxed closer to the surface for those who have their eyes open, it also appears that segments of power within the United States government are attempting to mar the reputation of the nation in eyes of those around the world. Assange and Wikileaks will be demonized by the establishment, and methods of information control will be proposed by the government, all in the name of national defense.

    A “political scientist”? Who doesn’t understand that “geopolitical” is a term having to do with the effect of geography on political concerns?
    This issue is one of “International Politics” and has nothing whatsoever to do with geographical concerns.

    That being said, her points are certainly well taken as far as international relations are concerned.

    All should take care when dealing with Newspeak, and pay attention to distinctions, even though the TV news commentators are uniformly statists zombies.

  2. Not really. Iran knows that while Arab LEADERS who are US allies support attacking Iran out of rivalry and envy as much as fear, Iran knows that the Arab PEOPLE do not support what these leaders want.

    So much for democracy promotion. It shows that the US can not pursue democracy in the area because its policies are not supported by the people in that area. And that this kind of information further weakens these leaders who want an attack on Iran as they know have to explain these views to their population. Osama bin Laden can now tell the Saudis “I told you so”. Especially when thes ecables also talk about how Egypt and Saudi wanted Israel to finish off with Hamas and Hezbullah. Thats not fear of nukes, that rivalry and envy that Hamas and Hezullah are challenging the US and Israel while these leaders are taking orders from Tel Aviv via the US.

    • Bigmo,

      You might want to consider that the Wikileaks Psyop targets the Western public.

      There is much less concern with development of propaganda for the Arab masses (although there is some). There they have already resorted to dominance through fear (Shakinah).
