There are two seemingly unrelated serious issues in the West that are actually closely intertwined, namely, a distinctly anti-Christian character of many Western policies, and an exaggerated obsession with war, to the extent that most of us cannot recall a period of peace during our lifetimes. And to the extent we had not seen peace, we have not seen liberty, though we pay lip service thereto and pretend we are defending it with our military. The US allowed a small group of parasites to deftly remove America’s freedom forever in 1913, the date when the bankers took control of Washington. The next year the world was at war.
In an email exchange with some friends, I sent a link to the NSS analysis of the Saudi role in US foreign policy and said that the US was being led around by the nose by the Saudis because of the petrodollar agreement. One respondent wrote:
"...how would Iran becoming richer, more settled, more productive, affect the petro-dollar?”
First of all, you need to read our treatise on the Saudis and how they have taken the reins of US foreign policy (see links 1-3 below).
The fact that Iran is becoming richer, more settled and more productive is not the issue at all for the Saudis. They cannot tolerate Iran’s very existence because it is majority Shiite. For the Saudis, religion, a violent intolerant religion to which most Saudis adhere, is the issue for them. As long as the US helps the Saudis spread their Wahhabism, as it has done for 50-60 years, as described in the treatise linked below, they will be happy and help prop up the dollar in exchange for the US relinquishing the West’s right to an indigenous culture. Keep in mind that Iran is a Shiite nation, and that is intolerable for the Sunni Wahhabist Saudis. When Trump complains that Iran is “the biggest state supporter of terror,” he is in fact merely genuflecting to his – and the West’s – masters, who will inevitably demand Iran’s total destruction. And the Trump voters will demand it with them believing that the Deep State wants Iran to survive and threaten the other master, Israel. And since they are “Christian” Zionists, they have no fear of the nuclear war that could ensue because they think that God will protect them from their own recklessness. The same God they believe is too weak to protect Israel by himself, without their help. They have no sense of this self-contradiction.
So what is Israel’s role?
While the Saudi-US petrodollar agreement is the underlying motive for US wars and regime changes in the Middle East and North Africa, as well as in Kosovo, the Israelis are cover for the illegal, and immoral US invasions and meddling there. Israel is the perfect cover because the majority of US Evangelicals hew to the Zionist cult, the most dangerous in the world – because the US is nuclear-armed and Saudi/Israel have caused the US to declare, as an enemy, Russia, the state that the Saudis and Israel consider an enemy – for one thing because nuclear-armed Russia opposes the Saudi-Israeli campaign against Shiite and secular leaders in the Muslim world, and hence the attempt to install radical jihadist leaders who attempt to de-Christianize the Muslim world (eg, the US-backed overthrow of Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak and his replacement with Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammed Morsi, whose regime persecuted Christians, and the Muslim regime in Kosovo that has allowed the people to raze ancient churches to the ground and desecrate all Christian cemeteries ).
The Israelis tend to be sceptical of devout traditional Christianity for religious reasons and because there is a pervasive belief among Jews that Christians have always been their enemy. They base this belief and the suspicion arising therefrom on the fact that there have in fact been pogroms in various Christian countries, and indeed, let us admit: the Jews were one of the targets of the Inquisition. Thus this suspicion is not all myth. There is also a perception – a false one – that the mistreatment of the Jews in the Third Reich had its origin in Christian beliefs. (In fact, the “Christianity” of Hitler’s supporters was essentially an unorthodox set of generalized beliefs that could best be called Folkish Christianity, which taught that Jesus was the son of a Germanic mercenary and that his followers must exact revenge on the people who had him crucified. This was light-years removed from Bible-based mainstream Christianity. Thus it could be said that, unbeknownst to most historians, the Holocaust was the fruit of a perversion of Christianity, not of Christianity itself.
Note that to the Saudis and Israelis, “Christian” Zionism is not a problem because it represents a radical departure from orthodox or traditional Christianity, being focused on promoting the secular state that has usurped the name “Israel,” which to the adherents is no less important than Christ’s teachings. Its exaggerated support for this secular state bearing little of the DNA and religious faith of ancient Israel is based on a widely accepted grotesque misinterpretation of Biblical prophecy, for example, as found in Deuteronomy and Ezekiel (this is explained in our 3-part analysis of “Christian” Zionism and 2 commentaries linked below).
Iran is also a thorn in Israel’s side, for other important reasons. For one thing, Iran, like most Muslims countries in the region, did not accept Israel as the homeland of the Jews because the land had been inhabited by Arabs for centuries. After the 6 days war, which was waged because Arab countries perceived that Israel had displaced 800,000 Arabs to clear their living space (the Israeli government, which loves a good bed time story, claims these Arabs left their lands voluntarily, as if there were no Zionists or British Mandate there to make their lives miserable and pick a fight that they would win and then claim “spoils”), the attacking combatants gave up, because they were defeated and because the US blindly backed Israel.
But the opposition of the Muslim world is not the main sticking point with Israel. As pointed out above, neither the Saudis nor Israel are fond of the Shiites or secular governments in that area, which are too tolerant of Christians and other minorities for their taste. In Lebanon and Syria, Christians and Muslims have gotten along quite well for centuries, and at one time in Libya and Iraq, Christians got along fairly well with Muslims. That is a source of annoyance to many Israelis (whose people were banished from almost all Arab lands while they themselves were busy expelling Palestinians) and is also intolerable to Saudi Wahhabists. Which is why the Saudis and Israel are bed partners. Further, since the US is obsessed with keeping the dollar strong, and because of the high concentration of “Christian” Zionists in the US, the tendency has been to suppress Shiite and secular governments in the MENA countries (and in Muslim-majority Kosovo) to please Israel and the Saudi dictatorship. You will find nary a word on this in either the msm or the alt-media. In fact, anyone just vaguely critical of Israel can be punished in various ways by the powers that be in the US, where freedom of the press is only for those who have the proper manners never to avail themselves of it.
That is it in a nutshell and the use of the USD as a reserve currency by the Saudis explains why US presidents and Congress fall all over themselves to please the Saudis. But the notion that the Saudis can prop up the USD is a bit of a myth, being based mostly on psychology – the psychology of US major investors in Treasuries. The small in-group at the top of the food chain in Wall Street simply either believes – and that is a religion as well – that the Saudis are the key to the dollar's health, or at least pretend to so that US officialdom will support the Saudis (in fact because they are the key to de-Christianizing the world). Beyond these denizens of the rarefied atmosphere of Upper Wall Street, there is almost zero concern for this Saudi role among ordinary news consumers in the West, who eschew complexity and detail and prefer simplistic explanations. The only complexity they favour is creations of their own minds such as the Qanon theories, which keep them so occupied that the real machinations of the men in black who run Washington and Wall Street are safe from their encroachment. The key point is that the far-fetched and convoluted Qanon stories are designed for the purpose of showing Trump as separate from the shadow government, despite evidence that he is one of the alligators in the swamp.
What I am laying out here is revolutionary stuff because it seems outlandish at first blush, but it is in fact the default explanation for US foreign policy – despite the obvious nature of this explanation, even the best educated and most independent-minded complain that US foreign policy doesn't make sense. After all, ask yourself what Trump’s foreign policy is. Bush’s? Clinton’s? Yet it definitely will make sense to you if you read the material linked below. It becomes disarmingly easy in this light. Israel and Saudi have created a perfect storm for the de-Christianization of the West, and it is working like a charm. One important pillar of the whole scheme is the refugee flood in Europe. Israelis and Saudis both view Christianity – again, not to be confused with "Christian" Zionism – with a jaundiced eye. Thus the inundation of Europe with Muslim refugees is very much to the liking of the elitists who aim to diminish Western culture. These Muslim immigrants, mostly Sunni and many of them Salafists/Takfirists (Wahhabists), greatly dilute the influence of Christianity and threaten its further existence. Refugees from the Shiite world would be a blessing by comparison but we are indoctrinated to fear and hate them.
Finally, Russia is a frankly and openly Christian country and that rankles both Israel and the Saudis, which explains why so many US and Israeli pols are anti-Russian.
In light of this analysis, there is no mystery at all about US foreign policy and no one should ever think it "makes no sense."
The only question should be: how is so much evil possible in a "Christian" country like the US? And the answer is: it is not a Christian country. It is a "Christian" Zionist country.
