Comforted by his electoral victory which comes shortly after his speech to a joint session of Congress, Benjamin Netanyahu will make sure that there won't be an Iranian nuclear agreement, any negotiation with Bashar al-Assad, or a resumption of the Oslo process for the establishment of a Palestinian state. Russia must be punished for its friendly relations with Syria. Therefore, Victoria Nuland and John McCain will pursue their policy in Ukraine with total disregard for its possible fallouts on European nations and the world at large. How all this will end up is anybody's guess. Success is not guaranteed. In fact, a rational analysis points in the other direction. What will become of the close-knit Israeli-American relations then?

In a speech delivered on October 3 rd , 2007, Wesley Clark, former commander of allied forces in Europe and grandson of a Polish Rabbi, gives an answer. He states that a "political coup" took place in the United States. By removing the word "etat" from the expression "coup d'etat" to replace it with the adjective "political", he draws his audience's attention to the fact that the American foreign policy has been profoundly altered without the American constitution being tampered with or the American public consulted. The architects of this change are Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz and a few others. If their policy turns out to be a failure, Americans will look for scapegoats. As history teaches us, they won't be American. They will be foreigners. In "Heritage: civilisation and the Jews", Abba Eban conducts a retrospective analysis of the history of the Jewish people. It would appear that the new policy architects either did not read the book or, if they did, they missed its subliminal message. Benjamin Netanyahu plays a risky game in taking advantage of the American people's naivety and its representatives' duplicity. Israel's future is at stake.
