Trump’s election was a ‘coup d’etat’ by Netanyahu: Scholar

The election of incoming US President Donald Trump was a “coup d’etat” by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and criminal Zionist groups in the US, an American scholar says.

“Trump is a creature of the most extremist elements in Zionist organized crime,” said Kevin Barrett, an author and political commentator in Madison, Wisconsin.

Trump has been a “front man for organized crime” his entire career; “that’s all he is ever done in his life,” Barrett told Press TV on Sunday.

“We just saw a hostile takeover of the United States; the election of Donald Trump was coup d’état by Netanyahu who now owns the United States,” he added.

Trump’s Zionist handlers designed misleading rhetoric for him in order to give false hope to American voters and help him get elected, Barrett argued.

“Some of the things he said led people to have hope, that he might be a peace candidate, especially regarding Russia [but] this was all a ruse designed by his extremist Zionist handlers around Netanyahu to allow Zionists to take over the United States,” he noted.

Trump’s advisers plan to invite Netanyahu to the president-elect’s inauguration or arrange a meeting between the two before he takes office later this month, the Associated Press reported on Saturday, citing a source close to his transition team.

The report of an invitation comes amid renewed tensions between the Obama administration and Israel over a UN vote condemning the Israeli settlement construction in the occupied Palestinian territories.

The UN Security Council voted 14-0 last week to pass Resolution 2334, which demanded an immediate end to Israel’s “illegal” settlement activities.

The White House decided to abstain – and not veto – the resolution, allowing it to be adopted. The move angered Netanyahu who accused President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry of being behind the “shameful” act.

In a speech on Thursday, Kerry defended the decision, saying Israel’s policies put the two-state solution “in serious jeopardy.”

Trump said on Saturday, “We have to protect Israel. Israel, to me, is very, very important. We have to protect Israel.” Commenting on Kerry’s remarks, he said, “I disagree with what he has done with Israel.”

The president-elect has already vowed to change course after he takes office.

TAP – Putin and Trump are bother Netanyahu stooges it seems.  The non-assassination of Kalrov in Istanbul (no blood from eight bullets?  come on!) demonstrates that Putin is not acting in good faith, but is just another controlled world non-leader acting out the part assigned to him by central casting.  Central casting wants a major war, and is preparing for that.  The next scholar thinks Israel will fail in these endeavours.  One can only hope he’s right.

“The tide of history is going against Israel,” says a British scholar, arguing that the regime is not going to survive much longer despite receiving overwhelming support from its allies like Britain and the US.

Dr. Rodney Shakespeare, a London-based university professor and political analyst, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Sunday, adding that no matter how pro-Zionist, the British and American governments will soon develop second thoughts for their support of Israel.

He made the remarks while discussing British Prime Minister Theresa May’s attack on Washington after US Secretary of State John Kerry’s strong rebuke of Israeli policies in the occupied Palestinian territories.

Last Wednesday, Kerry delivered a keynote speech this week that criticized Benjamin Netanyahu’s cabinet as the “most right-wing coalition in Israeli history,” and warned that the rapid expansion of settlements was “leading toward one state and perpetual occupation.”

May’s spokesman said she believed Kerry’s remarks were “not appropriate.”

Kerry’s unprecedented remarks came after Israel blasted the administration of US President Barack Obama for not vetoing UN Security Council Resolution 2334 in condemnation of Israel’s settlement activities.

The UK was a signatory to the measure that was passed in a historic 14-0 vote. The US abstained from the vote.

“We are saying effectively that Israel must be allowed to expand into the lands of others which is the Zionist dream, and at the same time we are backing those who are the progenitors and the financiers and the philosophical and religious supporters of Daesh,” Shakespeare said.

“When at last, after God knows how many years, the US finally agrees to publicly recognize that they are supporting a corrupt, fascist, expanding …. and racist entity, which is what Israel is, the UK of course cant quite face up” to the truth, the scholar added.

“So we play it both ways,” the scholar noted, pointing to Britain’s support for the UN resolution despite May’s rebuke of Washington.

He said London was not going to cease its unconditional support for Israel because, “two-thirds of the Conservative Party are friends of Zionist Israel, I believe over half the Labour Party and the same with the Liberal Party.”

“But the tide of history is going against Israel,” said the scholar. “The Boycott, Divest and Sanctions movement is gaining rapid strength and even though President-elect [Donald] Trump in the USA will no doubt be giving a traditional support to Israel, he may have second thoughts,” because of the West’s recent defeats in their foreign policy, Shakespeare argued, citing Syria as an example.

    The issue of Drumpf’s Zionist / Kosher Nostra ties seems to have caused much confusion, especially among traditional ‘anti-semetic’ White supremacist conservatives. This seems to have been due mainly to the known Clinton and Democrat ties to Wall Street and the Israel lobby. If Trump was the anti-Clinton / anti-Soros, anti-lefty/liberal candidate, he must be also be anti-Israel lobby. And yet it was blatantly obvious from the start of the campaign – and in fact for all of Trump’s career – that he was beholden to Kosher Nostra/Zionist interests. As it turns out, he wasn’t a stooge for just any old Zionist interests, but rather the hard-right Likud Nutty-yahoo faction. There’s an ever-widening rift between the Likudniks and liberal-sectarian Soros/Kerry/Clinton camp. Israel itself has changed dramatically since the Likud takeover, and they have now shuffled their assets to take over those positions of power within the US establishment. Poor Trump supporters. You look like real fools now! (And I’d put the alleged Jew-hating Jim ‘Stone-the-bloody-crows’ at the top of that list).

    Israel—at least the largely secular and progressive version of Israel that once captured the world’s imagination—is over. Although that Israel was always in some ways a fantasy, the myth was at least grounded in reality. Today that reality has changed, and the country that has replaced it is profoundly different from the one its founders imagined almost 70 years ago. Since the last elections, in March 2015, a number of slow-moving trends have accelerated dramatically. Should they continue, they could soon render the country unrecognizable. Already, the transformation has been dramatic. Israel’s current leaders—headed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who metamorphosed after the election from a risk-averse conservative into a right-wing radical—see democracy as synonymous with unchecked majority rule and have no patience for restraints such as judicial review or the protection of minorities. In their view, Israel is a Jewish state and a democratic state—in that order. Only Jews should enjoy full rights, while gentiles should be treated with suspicion. Extreme as it sounds, this belief is now widely held: a Pew public opinion survey published in March found that 79 percent of Jewish Israelis supported “preferential treatment” for Jews—a thinly veiled euphemism for discrimination against non-Jews.

    Meanwhile, the two-state solution to the conflict with the Palestinians has been taken off the table, and Israel is steadily making its occupation of East Jerusalem and the West Bank permanent. Human rights groups and dissidents who dare criticize the occupation and expose its abuses are denounced by officials, and the government has sought to pass new laws restricting their activities. Arab-Jewish relations within the country have hit a low point, and Israel’s society is breaking down into its constituent tribes.

    Netanyahu thrives on such tribalism, which serves his lifelong goal of replacing Israel’s traditional elite with one more in tune with his philosophy. The origins of all these changes predate the current prime minister, however. To truly under­stand them, one must look much further back in Israel’s history: to the country’s founding, in 1948.
