US Ambassador to Lebanon writes of Israeli threats in 1980...

"weapons of mass deception..."

"خلّي عينك عليها"

Israel's strategic cooperation with Cairo, Amman and Damascus..., through the nexus of intelligence evils, the Quartet of CIA2/MOSSAD/MI6/DGSE, pursued discreetly and at the highest levels, is the linchpin of Israel's Arab relations....and the best avenue for fomenting additional and selective fragmentations, for the advent of hundreds of Tribes with Flags all over the area, in Asia, Africa..., where Darfur/Sudan is a prime defining example now..., and soon in Latin America, with the occasional targeted political assassination... for a primer of colossal and disruptive targeted events....through the infamous and criminal activities of the White House Murder INC...for decades.

"[Policy] is like a play in many acts," Metternich wrote, "which unfolds inevitably once the curtain is raised. To declare then that the performance will not take place is an absurdity. The play will go on, either by means of the actors . . . or by means of the spectators who mount the stage. . . . Intelligent people never consider this the essence of the problem, however. For them it lies in the decision whether the curtain is to be raised at all..."

In the wake of the accusation by Chas Freeman that his nomination to lead the National Intelligence Council was derailed by an "Israeli lobby," a forthcoming memoir by another distinguished ambassador adds stunning new charges to the debate. The ambassador, John Gunther Dean, writes that over the years he not only came under pressure from pro-Israeli groups and officials in Washington but also was the target of an Israeli-inspired assassination attempt in 1980 in Lebanon, where he had opened links to the Palestine Liberation Organization.... at the height of the Lebanese tensions, wars, and Proxy-CIA militias trying their level best to combat Palestinian terror all over Lebanon, backed by dozens of cold war leftist extremist organizations, headed by Walid killer/CIA Jumblatt... as usual CIA was backing both sides of the conflict to foment designed and orchestrated low intensity conflicts, which claimed the lives and livelihoods of tens of thousands of innocent peoples of the Lebanon for decades....

Dean's suspicions that Israeli agents may have also been involved in the mysterious plane crash in 1988 that killed Pakistan's president, General Mohammed Zia ul Haq, led finally to a decision in Washington to declare him mentally unfit, which forced his resignation from the foreign service after a thirty-year career. After he left public service, he was rehabilitated by the State Department, given a distinguished service medal and eventually encouraged to write his memoirs. Now 82, Dean sees the subsequent positive attention he has received as proof that the insanity charge (he calls it Stalinist) was phony, a supposition later confirmed by a former head of the department's medical service.

Dean, whose memoir is titled Danger Zones: A Diplomat's Fight for America's Interests, was American ambassador in Lebanon in August 1980 when a three-car convoy carrying him and his family was attacked near Beirut.

"I know as surely as I know anything that Mossad, the Israeli intelligence agency, was somehow involved in the attack," Dean wrote, describing how he had been under sharp criticism from Israeli politicians and media for his contacts with Palestinians. "Undoubtedly using a proxy, our "ally" Israel's MOSSAD had tried to kill me."

Components of the White House Murder INC's special assassinations operations: Simplicity, Security, Repetition..., Surprise, Speed and Purpose...

At first blush, Ambassadors of countries that threaten Syria’s hegemony in Lebanon feel rather anxious....

To be fair, the Syrians have no monopoly on assassinating ambassadors in Lebanon… But they do have the largest market share by far.... working on behalf of the notorious White House Murder INC, and the Siamese twins, CIA2/MOSSAD.... for decades, and the Lebanese continued to be fooled at their own expense....

On September 4th, 1981, Louis Delamarre, the French Ambassador to Lebanon, was assassinated by Syria’s gunmen. The aim may have been to kidnap him, buy the gunmen who intercepted the car shot him when faced with his resistance.

Modus Operandi

Maybe the aim was to kill Delamarre all along, after kidnapping him and dumping his body in the “right” neighbourhood, to ensure a given effect...

On March 16th, 1977, the Syrians “operators” who shot Kamal Joumblat had actually intended to dump his body in a Christian village, to ensure “proper” retaliations were initiated. But Kamal Joumblat had foiled.... locked his car, and driven it in a ditch, because they were terrorised by the attack. In any case, “they” managed to guarantee the “desired” effect, thanks to their many proxies among various confessions…

Not that they need to try hard to find willing murderersbut I digress.

Kamal Joumblat’s assassins were later “disposed” of, and those who disposed of them similarly dealt with. A similarly fate awaited Delamarre’s assassins.

Lesson 1: Crime pays, but only for upper echelons.

…Provided one uses it “judiciously”; in politics, the only thing “worse than a crime” is a blunder.

Louis Delamarre was assassinated during a time when Syria still had relatively solid Soviet backing, without antagonizing the Americans... It was able to leverage this support against France, who was trying to re-assert its influence in Lebanon.

In addition to growing opposition in Lebanon, Hafez El-Assad’s rule in Syria was also facing growing threat from the Muslim Brotherhood. The assassination served to demonstrate the Syrian dictator’s determination; those who did not get the message will be “convinced” during the crackdown on Hama, when between 20,000 and 40,000 innocents died in an operation directed at no more than 500 terrorists.

The conditions today are different. For all the Russian support, this is no Soviet backing. The Russians today may well be playing up the great power confrontation, but their main interests are far more “business” focused, centred on retooling their industry towards civilian applications. Rather than just “Great Game” politics, it is more likely that Putin is leveraging his support of Syria and Iran for a “better deal” from the United States and the Arabs.

Lesson 2: If you want crime to pay, make you’re in the right environment.

The environment being different, Ambassadors like Khoja should be logically safe from Syria. Logic, however, is not what is guiding this regime. More accurately, it is a different logic, one of confrontation and even partition.

Pace the rants of otherwise venerable commentator, this regime is not about to embrace change; it is in strict survival mode, since it knows very well that it cannot maintain control over Damascus without power over Lebanon and its juicy rackets.

But in its struggle for survival, this regime is still reading from the “old book” bequeathed by Hafez El-Assad. Yet the father’s book was not written for the son’s world, his time has passed, Lebanon may well be evolving, and Syria is changing, albeit at a glacial pace.

The “old book” was only “valid” in the 1990’s, when many kidnappings and assassinations were visited upon the Lebanese. It was becoming less valid soon after 9/11, when the West realized the long term price of its long term support for “unresponsive” dictators….

Luckily(?) for Lebanon, for all the talk of a “deal”, this regime appears unable to change, and thus unwilling to respond to Western advances other than mere “window dressing”. In the face of Western disappointment, it seems to stick to a strict policy of:

Waiting for the Democrats....LOL

… But those who stand still can only fall behind, so postponing the reckoning will only make it worse. Stil, in the meantime, they can cause a lot of damage…

So Khoja is right to be careful…Yes, he escaped for good, to join with Bandar and recalibrate the infamous White House Murder INC, for future operations....
