It's not land Israel wants - it's WATER

It all makes sense now. Land, Water, Energy - Israelis want TOTAL control over all the Middle East's resources and they'll stop at nothing to get it.
[Extracted from a paper prepared [in] October 1997.]

Some experts have suggested that rumours of Jordanian and Syrian plans to divert the headwaters of the Jordan River were the principal cause of the 1967 war between Israel and the Arab states. Others believe that Israel's systematic exploitation of the water resources of the West Bank has been the main reason for its reluctance to consider a peace agreement based on the exchange of land for peace, and that the control of the flow of the Litani River is the real reason for Israel's occupation of southern Lebanon.

The Litani, located entirely within Lebanon, derives its hydro-political importance from the fact that it runs within easy tunneling distance to the present Israeli-Lebanese border. It runs actually less than 10 kilometers from the Israeli controlled upper reaches of the Jordan. Israel had hoped to connect the Litani with the Jordan, thus enabling it to pump those waters into Israel proper.

The plan to seize the Litani has a long history.
It had been articulated for the first time in the 1920s by one of the Zionist organisations but the objective became more serious following the 1967 war, as Israel wanted more water than had been garnered from the war. The timing for the capture of the Litani in 1978 was logical: if South Lebanon were secured at the time, the waters of the Litani would be available for Israeli use by some point in the mid-1980s, when Israel anticipated that the waters captured in the 1967 war would be fully used up and more water needed. However, as things stand now, the coveted waters of the Litani remain undeveloped for Lebanon and in limbo for Israel.

On the whole, the 1967 war secured the capture of about 900 mcm/y of water for the Israelis, or nearly half of their water use. These waters are now so many arguments against any kind of settlement with the Palestinians which would involve restitution of that water. . .

Israel 'aiming for Litani river'
[Aug. 1,] 2006 - 07:04:01

The Israeli army will move deeper into southern Lebanon and hold on to that territory for several weeks, until a multinational force can deploy there, senior Israeli officials said today.

Israel Radio, Israel Army Radio and a senior Israeli government official said ground forces would reach the Litani river, about 30km north of the Israeli-Lebanese border. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not authorised to discuss decisions of closed-door government meetings with reporters.

Ephraim Sneh, a senior Labour Party lawmaker, indirectly confirmed the planned push until the Litani. Asked by Israel Radio how long troops would hold on to that territory, up to the Litani, Sneh said: “We are not talking about days we are talking about longer, but not about months.”

However, two other government officials said Israel’s security cabinet, which met late yesterday, only approved taking a smaller area of land, a strip of about seven kilometres (four miles) from the border.

Sneh, a former deputy defence minister, spoke hours after top cabinet ministers approved a broader ground offensive into southern Lebanon.

“The goal is not to occupy Lebanon,” Sneh said, adding that the goal is to hold onto the territory until a multinational force can be deployed to the Israel-Lebanon border.
"The goal" is merely to control and consume all its resources.

Israel won't stop until they've consumed it all.

Pesky boundaries getting in the way of natural resources...that's what the IDF is for.

Hi all, long time first time a.k.a, blowback

Actually, I did some looking into the water log of Israel, but this note to and of Castro took so long and seemed a bit weird--inappropriate to share it in the same space with the Zionist water adventures.


ILLNESS BEFALLS CASTRO age 80 -- Raoul age 75, takes over

For the first time in 50 years, Cuban President Fidel Castro has been forced to hand over power -- at least temporarily -- to his 75-year-old brother, Raul, after undergoing intestinal surgery.

Fidel Castro is seeing some dark hours at the moment. I send out all my positive energy toward him and incessant prayers. I just don't want to cry again for another fallen hero. Eventhough, I'm certain the journey never ends just as in this beginning and unto that end. Nevertheless, last time when Arafat fell suddenly and unexpectedly, I was politically, emotionally and spiritually affected by the sad news. Some analysts have claimed that Arafat was too, flamboyant and too ineffective as a manager both administratively and as a commander of the armed wing, history though will show that he led the way for the coming 4th generation asymmetrical warriors that will challenge the oppressors of his people. Once they stop throwing stones and learn to fire sophisticated weapons the tide will change.

Castro has been HUGE!!! His social programs in the Caribbean nation has surpassed those implemented by the richest country in the world, such as health care and education. This clearly shows what representatives of the people can accomplish when their own self interest is not the primary objective.

Peace and Health to you Fidel Castro, both on this plane and on the next journey your atoms take.

One love

You know how they are always gloating about how they are so high and mighty and have turn the dry desert into an oasis, while the Arabs just run for their lives from their guns. Yeah I guess the edifice of blooming the desert into lush groves takes some underlings. Although, this Israeli (US-Britain pulling all the strings to squelch a cease-fire) war on Lebanon is multidimensional, water resource was an obvious goal at the very onset of the water.

Israel itself has mentioned this Litany River as the boundary line it desired to establish and continues to do so The aim was announced that the push Hizballah north of Litani. In fact Israel wants all residents to move out of the area completely. That is, depopulate the area -- reason for their Dresdenization of Southern Beirut.

The IAF systematically, destroyed a majority of structures already, and will finish the job of cleansing Southern Beirut of its Shi'a population in the coming days. The Shi'ite community and Hizballah specifically, has been the only thing (Carter 78) keeping Israel from either tapping the Litani with tunnels or occupying the entire region outright and diverting the water to Taberius in Israel.

Of course, as the war drags on, Mujahadeens will join the effort alongside Hizballah and although, Syria has a weak naval and air force, its ground forces faired well against Israel in the late 80s and 90s. This war may yet escalate. We have been viewing signs around the globe that point to the increasing threats to US and Israeli international assets including civilians.

Almost half of the water currently used in Israel wass captured, diverted or preempted
from neighbors.

Essentially, control of the Litani has long been a dream of Israel in hopes of establishing a greater Zion from Sinai to ancient Babylon. Zionists have been after the Litani since 1905. The league of Nations rejected a plea from Zionists in 1919 for the River.

Ben-Gurion and Moshe Dayan -- Israel's early urban guerilla-terrorists advocated Israeli occupation of southern Lebanon and the Litani.(1941) They tried again in 1967. 1973 also, but the pesky problems with these Lebanese is that they never attacked Israel in these Arab wars so it couldn't confiscated its lands and get it sustained in the UN with slick legalities and the right "connections" (The US stopped investors from infusing capital into Lebanon's Litani so that Israel could have an easier time of confiscating it) {Thank god for those fearless Shi'a otherwise that river would have been Israel's long ago} Even the domestic, non-Muslim politicians tried to divert the water and/or sell out to Israel. But the Shi'ites stood firm.

Even before securing the Litani in its "staged" war with Lebanon in 1978. Israel had already listed it as an asset in its water resources, lol.

Carter stopped the Israeli take over of the Litani. Is it of any wonder why the hostages were not freed until after Carter's defeat but the event was prolonged until after the inauguration--just to show him who's the chosen race.

The Iranians and Israelis have had a long history of military and security relations. This continued long through the years, from the days of the Shah all the way up to and beyond Iran-contra. Israel, was the facilitator in a great manipulator in these covert escapades--around the world. (South Africa, Angola, South America, Central etc., Israel has earned the red carpet it spilt a lot of blood)

So Carter, not only got defamed, by the an early version of the lobby? PR blitz? Outspent? Defamation? The litany of shame for Carter's Litani fiasco. His political career was essentially destroyed. I don't want to sound alarm bells, but the circumstantial evidence when put in the context of recent work such as The Israeli Lobby by Walt and Meishemeir puts a new light on Carter's downfall as a political being. In case you're thinking about it, NGO work is not political work per se. (shakes dirty finger at you)

Water was a major factor for getting the Zionist up running to find a way to declare war in 1967 too. To be fair to the Zionist state, water has been the cause of most wars in history. But don't shake your curly little fingers at us and tell us how moral you are.

Here I am doing some serious scholarly background work on this subject But, the absurdity of these Zionists just wont let me keep a straight face, geeze the hypocracy is scathing.

Anyhow, declining water quality in the form of seawater intrusion into coastal aquifers is a critical issue in Israel. Many of Israel's existing watter gullies continue to yield grainy water which needs more and more purification.

Israel has been using recycled water to help meet its water needs. To Israel, therefore, use of the Litani is the best way to meet water needs and to face a growing population which will necessarily, have to import more people to do menial work as they become more afluent.

I thought these people were supposed to be the chosen ones, the blessed--cursed more likely. recycled water?

The historical greed and belligerence of Zionist goes back 100 years as far as the Litani River in Lebanon.

Now THAT'S scary. With end-time prophesy implications. All we need now to to get gog and magog(russia) involved. And the Cheney administration seems to want that.

Undenaible liberal,

Gives new meaning to the verse that talks about the Euphrates being 'dried up' to prepare the way for the 'kings of the East' which 'could' be construed as pertaining to what you are talking about. Just a thought though. With all of the events taking place in Palestine, Lebanon and soon to be Syria, Iran is totally justified not only in pursuing nuCLEAR power but DEFENSIVE weapons also. Can you blame them? If they don't it's just a matter of time before they look like Lebanon and Iraq.

You hit the nail on the head qrs. It's always been about water because with their influence in governments and financial institutions they have ALL THE PROPERTY they can desire. Like Stern Gang is saying Litani has been on the drawing board for a very long time, maybe from the beginning of the zionist settlements. Obviously all of the victims of these atrocites haven't been worth the 'two soldiers' these zionist death lovers claim went missing.

Sad, so very sad. Such meaningless loss of life for what?

What ever happened to the transaction between Israel and Turkey a couple of years ago? Israel was going to buy water from Turkey..


At Tuesday, August 01, 2006, Blogger qrswave said...

Hey murat,thanks for the link!


"Under the 20-year agreement, Turkey will ship 40,500 acre feet of water annually from its Manavgat River, which flows into the Mediterranean Sea, the two countries said. Details must still be worked out, including the price of the water and how to transport it to Israel, they said.

The agreement, more than two years in the making, comes at a time when Israel's main source of fresh water, the Sea of Galilee, is full to overflowing after abundant rainfall. But long-term prospects in the arid region are bleak.

Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Jonathan Peled said the water would probably be shipped in tankers or towed across the Mediterranean in large plastic bubbles to a storage facility.

Based on estimated shipping costs from the ministry, the deal could amount to tens of millions of dollars a year for Turkey. Peled said a small amount of that money would be paid in goods, most likely military items.

In the parched Middle East, water is a strategic issue as well as one of survival. Turkey is one of the few countries in the region with water reserves, and sales of the precious commodity could boost its position as a regional power.

Israel's relationship with the large Islamic country is important to the Jewish state, especially after more than three years of fighting with the Palestinians. The violence has caused tension in the Middle East and strained Israel's ties with Egypt and Jordan, the only Arab countries with which it has signed peace treaties.

"This agreement will increase the cooperation between the two countries and also lead to peace and stability in the Middle East," said Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesman Namik Tan.

He said the landmark agreement turns water into an internationally accepted "commodity," and that Turkey hopes to sell water to other countries."

A commodity - just like oil and just like money - but far more precious.

Apparently, Israel doesn't see a need to pay for it, when they can just steal it from their neighbors by brute force.

Though stealing the Litani River water would be a typical Israeli goal, why would the Israeli Death Forces be dropping leaflets north of the Litani River telling the Lebanese people to evacuate?

This is all about kicking off a war with Iran and Syria, and sucking the US into that war.

From wiki:

Though the borders of Greater Israel are not clearly defined, many devout Jews (and Christians alike) draw such definition from Biblical sources, namely the book of Genesis, which describes God's covenant with Abraham:

On that day, God made a covenant with Abram, saying: "To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt as far as the great river the Euphrates. The land of the Kenites, Kenizites, Kadmonites; the Chitties, Perizites, Refaim; the Emorites, Canaanites, Gigashites and Yevusites." - Genesis 15:18-21

In the above context, Greater Israel would comprise, roughly, all of modern-day Israel (including the West Bank and Gaza Strip), Jordan, and Lebanon, much of Syria, Iraq, and Kuwait, and parts of Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Turkey.


go to wikipedia to see the map. click on the map, read the credit. This map has been created, or approved by the CIA.

You can't make this shit up!

P.S. you might want to make copies of it too. the map, and the text, it's getting a lot of viewing, may be "edited" soon ;)

Are we all getting the big picture now?

Of course, israel wants the water. They want to take what is good and treat Palestinians like dogs so they will leave. And America wants Iraq and the oil. It is selling it off piece by piece to the corporations and will leave the Iraqi people broke. This is all about money and resources, not about people or gods. And it is truly evil.

I did a bible study once and began a critical examination of Genesis. Well, the earth being created first and the sun and stars after it didnt make a lot of sense and I doubt the Israelis believe that. And the idea of punishing all of mankind over the original sin of Adam and Eve didnt make a great deal of sense, I mean maybe Eve might have made a better decision another day or a second couple might have learned from the mistakes of the first or decided differently? And Cain and Abel married who to have children? Their sisters? Very little of it made sense, at least now and why? Because it was written by men, not God, as was the koran and the new testament. And anything written by men is subjedt to debate, to say the least. If there were a God or an Allah, one thing is for sure: teh creator of life adn this beatiful earth and these wonderful things called human beings would not want us to kill what it created. That is the one thing for sure, yet the one thing people of literal religious writings seem to forget.
