Israel: Netanyahu Given Power to Declare War, Bringing US with Him If He Starts New Wars

Israel: Parliament passed a law allowing the prime minister and defense minister to decide alone whether the nation will go to war. This puts Netanyahu firmly in the driver’s seat. The law says that this power shall be use only “under extreme circumstances”, which is not defined in the law. If Netanyahu declares war, it is certain that the US will back Israel – which means that Netanyahu now can bring America into war. In a video recorded a number of years ago, Netanyahu says that Israel has 80% support from Americans and that America can easily be maneuvered. -GEG

Video of Netanyahu boasting of being able to be an aggressor because America will back Israel, he said: “American is something that you can easily maneuver, and move in the right direction. And even if they say something….So then they say something, so what? 80% of Americans support us! It’s absurd! We have such support there, and here we’re thinking what we should do “if”…”

In a surprise and potentially far-reaching victory for Benjamin Netanyahu, the Knesset on Monday evening gave the prime minister the authority to declare war or order a major military operation by consulting only the defense minister, and not via a full cabinet vote as the law had previously required.

Sixty-two Knesset members voted the dramatic proposal into law, beating out the 41 opposition MKs who opposed it claiming that the language of the law effectively gives free reign to the prime minister by removing all oversight.

According to the new law, in “extreme circumstances,” military operations can be authorized by the prime minister and defense minister alone and will not need a vote by cabinet ministers.

The law does not specify exactly what those circumstances may be, or who will determine them, saying only that the case will apply, “if the issue is necessary due to urgency.”

The proposal — advanced by Netanyahu since last year — had been rejected earlier in the day by members of two key Knesset committees: Law and Justice, and Foreign Affairs and Defense. It was resubmitted, however, by Likud member and Foreign Affairs and Defense committee chairman Avi Dichter during the second and third readings of a broader amendment and was voted into law as part of that wider legislation.

That wider amendment allows the government to delegate the authority for going to war under normal circumstances, or mobilizing for a major military operation, to a forum made up of “at least half” of all cabinet ministers.

Some eight years ago, Netanyahu and then-defense minister Ehud Barak instructed the chief of staff and head of the Mossad intelligence service to put the army into a state of readiness, only to be told by the latter two that the relevant activity was illegal because it had not been properly approved and could lead to war.

This video is almost a generation old. What is Israel to do? Are the being aggressors or posturing themselves for defense of their nation? I don’t think there is a clear answer to that question, but I err on the side of defending themselves since the Palestinians have never come to the bargaining table in good faith. There only strategy is for Israel’s destruction as they are cannon fodder for the powerful Muslim countries.

No, he was ONLY given the authority to go to war from those in his OWN country. If those who serve within our Congress declares war because we are attacked, then it is Lawful, but truthfully, any who follow any orders to aid Israel’s land grabs should be court-martialed. Alexander Hamilton: “… a treaty cannot be made which alters the Constitution or which infringes any express exceptions to the power of the Constitution of the United States.” John Quincy Adams: “America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence… Read more »

Trump has done well domestically for the USofA, but it is up to WeThePeople to keep him on a short leash when it comes to Mid-Eastern involvement. He needs to explain clearly to WeThePeople his views and intentions in no uncertain terms since we are the Sovereigns of this nation and we have a basic right in Law to Veto his actions if wisdom dictates.
