  Pushed, Are Pushing and Will Keep Pushing America Into Israel's Wars (3)

11 November 2011 

Alan Dershowtiz:

A criminal law professor at Harvard Law School, he once published an essay in the San Francisco Chronicle entitled “Want to Torture? Get a Warrant,” in which he advocates the issuance of warrants permitting the torture of terrorism suspects. One torture techniques recommended by him is to have ‘the sterilized needle being shoved under the fingernails’. A Washington Post columnist described his torture idea as “chillingly Nazi-like”.

He is also the appellate adviser for the defence in the O.J. Simpson trial in 1995.

Daniel Pipes:

Served in various capacities at the Departments of State and Deafens.

As an outspoken Zionist columnist for the New York Sun and The Jerusalem Post, he has been accused of attacking academic freedom in 2002 by publishing a list of academics critical of Israel and U.S. foreign policy.

Back in 1987, he encouraged the United States to provide Saddam Hussein with upgraded weapons and intelligence, ostensibly to counterbalance Iran’s successes in the Iran-Iraq War.

He was also a strong backer of the Iraq War and claimed that Saddam Hussein posed an “imminent threat” to the United States.

Eliot Cohen:

The Director of the Strategic Studies department at SAIS and a member of the Project for the New American Century, he currently serves as Counselor to the U.S. State Department, being one of the first neoconservatives to publicly advocate war against Iran and Iraq.

Quote by Cohen: “We know that he [Saddam Hussain] supports terror. There’s very solid evidence that the Iraqis were behind an attempt to assassinate President Bush’s father. And we—by the way, we do know that there is a connection with the 9/11 terrorists.”

Bill Kristol:

A vocal supporter of the Israeli attack on Lebanon, stating that the war is “our war too,” referring to the United States. He continues to back the Iraq war and pushes a war with Iran”.

He is associated with a number of prominent conservative think tanks in America and co-founded the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) with another American-Jew Robert Kagan.

Max Boot:

A prominent advocate for neoconservative foreign policy. He once described his own position as supporting for the use of “American might to promote American ideals” throughout the world.

He vigorously promoted the invasion of Iraq and arguing recently that it is "in America's Interest to Stay in Iraq" because "having active bases would allow us to project power and influence in the region."

During the Gaza war, Boot stated that Israel was morally justified to invade the Gaza Strip.

He supports what he calls American imperialism and the pursuit of spreading democracy across the non-Western world, which he sees as the only way to prevent another 9/11 event.

Marc Grossman:

Served as United States Ambassador to Turkey, Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs, and Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs, Grossman served as Assistant Secretary of State for European Affairs from 1997 to 2000 and was responsible for over 4,000 State Department employees posted in 50 sites abroad with a program budget of $1.2 billion. He is also the United States Special Envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan.

He played a leading role in orchestrating NATO's 1999 Washington summit, and helped direct U.S. participation in NATO’s military campaign in Kosovo.

Following the September 11th attacks, he helped marshal international diplomatic support for the Global war on Terrorism and for the military campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq.
