In Israel, as is the case in the United States, the lawful structure of representative government has long been replaced by a "Deep State" apparatus with remarkably similar results: Military aggression as the mode of operation in international affairs, and Robber Baron Era style domestic policies, leading to unchecked power of the banking system and rapid increase in poverty.

Yoram Cohe - Shin-Bet Head, and Benny Gantz - IDF Chief of Staff

OccupyTLV, November 15 - over the past week, Israeli media report an "Armageddon" - an all out war between the Shin-Bet and IDF over the accountability for the apparent lack of preparation and lack of adequate response in the recent round of violence in Gaza, which led to the large-scale massacre of Palestinian civilians and widespread international condemnation of Israel. [1-2]

Prime Minister Netanyahu was reported by media to have brokered a ceasefire between IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz and Shin-Bet Head Yoram Cohen, only to see it collapse the next day.

Of particular interest is a comment by senior IDF "sources", reported by by Israeli Broadcasting Services TV and by print media (no comparable English publication was found):

"They [Shin-Bet - jz] are so used to lie to the Arabs, that perhaps now they are trying to start lying to the Jews as well". [3]

It should be recalled that "lying to the Jews", and actions by the Shin-Bet to undermine senior IDF officers are nothing new: [4-7]

* 1984 - Kav 300 affair - Shin-Bet agents executed two Palestinian bus hijackers and tried to frame a senior IDF officer in murder. None of the Shin-Bet agents was held accountable, but the Attorney General, who insisted on conducting an investigation was fired... [4]

* 1995 - PM Rabin (former IDF Chief of Staff) assassination - Shin-Bet was deeply involved, but the matter was covered up by the courts. [4]

* 2002 - implementation of fraudulent IT systems in the Israeli courts - security of which was under the Shin-Bet primary authority. [5]

* 2010-present - Harpaz document affair - again, involvement of the Shin-Bet, in a case which may be a Shin-Bet sting operation to undermine the potential political career of retired IDF Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi, is covered up. [6]

The current "Armageddon" may in fact be an effort to undermine the potential future political career of current IDF Chief Staff Benny Gantz, soon to retire. Regardless of his lackluster performance, Gantz, like any retired IDF general is a natural future political figure, therefore a potential threat to Netanyahu.

In Israel, as is the case in the United States, the lawful structure of representative government has long been replaced by a "Deep State" apparatus with remarkably similar results: Military aggression as the mode of operation in international affairs, and Robber Baron Era style domestic policies, leading to unchecked power of the banking system and rapid increase in poverty.
