Zionist Creative Destruction of the Middle East for the Benefit of the Apartheid Israeli Regime


Wars in the Middle East and Around the World: Zionist "Creative Destruction"

The Middle East is devastated with wars, civil wars, revolutions, counter revolutions, military coups, assassinations, and plots. These seem to be the works of global capitalists, who have two mutually-related objectives: looting the region's energy resources and maintaining the Israeli regional hegemony.

It is the process of "creative destruction" of capitalism, a notion first used by Karl Marx to describe how capitalists "annihilate" current structures in their relentless quest for more accumulations of wealth, then they annihilate accumulated wealth in continuous wars.

The Austrian-American economist, Joseph Schumpeter, adapted this Marxist notion to the defense of capitalism. He argued that innovations and entrepreneurship lead to the destruction of old ways and introducing new, creative ways.

Both Karl Marx and Joseph Schumpeter predicted the tragic downfall of capitalism from their different perspectives. While Marx predicted it as a result of the capitalist exploitation of workers, Shumpeter predicted it as a result of its turbulent "creative destruction," which leads intellectuals to revolt against it. [1]

Israeli Zionists and their followers in the US have used the notion and the term of "creative destruction" as their strategy and action plan in the Middle East. The ultimate outcome is a devastated region, weakened population, and governments of collaborators, which enables global capitalists achieve their ultimate objectives.

An Israeli document titled "The Zionist Plan for the Middle East," authored by Oded Yinon in 1982, explained that the Middle Eastern states need to be sub-divided into small and weak states in order for the Israeli state to be stronger than all of them, and ultimately leading it to become an empire extending from the Nile to the Euphrates (from Egypt to Iraq). [2]

Expressing the same notion, some American Zionists and Israel-firsters, led by Richard Pearle, published their own document in 1996, titled "A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm," in which they called for regime change in Iraq and containment of Syria. They wrote the document for the Israeli prime minister, Netanyahu, but the main figureheads of the coming Bush administration adopted it as a plan of action. [3]

The Bush administration implemented the "The Clean Break" fully by invading Iraq but did not stop there. The Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, announced in Tel Aviv, Israel, the intention of her administration to go even further in the notion of the "creative destruction" to draw a new map of the Middle East, that favors Israel. [4] 

Thus, almost all of the instability that happened and still happening in the Middle East, since the establishment of Israel in 1948, can be explained as a result of the Zionist "creative destruction."

The Egyptian counter revolution, culminating in the military coup, on June 30, 2013, which overthrew the first elected revolutionary government, was to a great extent a copy of the overthrow of the Mossadegh government in Iran, in 1953. The CIA and MI6 used mass protests, pitting Islamists against socialists, and finally staging the military coup. [5]

The US has created and led a coalition of NATO and Arabian Gulf states to destroy the Sunni Islamic resistance to the US-installed Shi'i regime in Iraq. The US renewed war on Iraq has extended to the Syrian Sunni areas too.

The Winners:

The renewed US-led war on Sunni Muslim Arabs in Iraq and Syria caters to the beneficiaries of the war industry (the military-industrial-intelligence complex, the Federal Reserve, oil interests, global Zionists, and Israelis). It adds trillions of dollars more to the coffers of the war beneficiaries. At the same time, the war aims at removing another obstacle to the achievement of the ultimate Israeli-Zionist plan of establishing an Empire from the Nile to the Euphrates (from Egypt to Iraq). [6]

The Losers:

The first loser of this renewed US-led war on the Middle East is the world peace. It brings the world back to the evil years of the Cold War, in which resources of the planet were wasted in wars and militarization instead of investment in science, technology, social welfare, cooperation, and cultural understanding. [7]

The second category of losers of this renewed US-led war on the Middle East includes Arabs, Muslims, and their states. In addition to more death and destruction of their infrastructure, Arab and Muslim societies are being devastated socially and culturally.

The third category of losers of this renewed US-led war on the Middle East includes most Americans, particularly members of the middle and lower classes. These are going to be forced to pay off the trillions of dollars which will be added to the US national debt as a result of the war expenses.

In order to sell the war to the indoctrinated population, the war beneficiaries maintain their relentless campaigns of compartmentalization of Americans and dehumanization of Arabs and Muslims through the Zionist media, particularly Fox News and CNN as well as through the parrot air heads in the radio stations and the newspapers.

The Zionist Creative Destruction in the Middle East

On December 17, 2010, at 11:30 am, Muhammed Bou Azizi set himself on fire in front of the government building in his hometown of Sidi Bouzaid, Tunisia, in protest against oppression and corruption of the Tunisian dictatorial regime. [10]

His heroic action was the spark the Arab masses were waiting for to start their peaceful revolutions against oppression and corruption in almost all Arab states.

Using their "creative destruction," the Israelis, global Zionists, their collaborators, and their local Arab puppet regimes were capable to stop and destroy the Arab Spring by counter revolutions, civil wars, military interventions, and military coups.

Most Arab rulers were able to contain these peaceful revolutions. However, few of them couldn't, leading to regime changes in Tunisia, Egypt, and Yemen. The Libyan peaceful revolution was stolen by the violent NATO air campaign, which not only  devastated the Qaddafi-led forces but it also turned Libya into a failing state with a continuous civil war. The peaceful Syrian revolution was turned into a violent civil war as a result of the US-led coalition of European and Arabian Gulf regimes as well as the interventions of Russia and Iran.

In Yemen, the US drone war and the mediation of the Arabian Gulf States for a compromise preempted the revolution and led to a civil war, which has devastated the country after that due to the foreign intervention from Iran and the Gulf States.

In Egypt, a counter revolution culminating on June 30, 2013 sacked the elected Ikhwan revolutionary government and killed the dreams of Egyptians for having their own democratic government, without corruption and poverty.


Throughout the second half of the twentieth century until now, the Middle East has not enjoyed any stability. Israel launched wars on the Palestinian people, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon. It also launched air strikes on Iraq, Tunisia, Sudan, and Yemen.

Britain and France attacked and occupied the Egyptian Canal area, in 1956.

Between 1956 and 1962, hundreds of thousands of Algerians were killed by the French imperialist occupation forces, in their failing attempt to crush the Algerian liberation movement, which achieved victory in 1962.

The US launched a devastating war on Iraq in 1991, rather than allowing Iraqi forces to withdraw from Kuwait peacefully. The US also invaded and occupied Afghanistan in 2001 and Iraq in 2003.

Iraq has become a de facto divided country into Kurdish, Sunni Arab, and Shi'i areas, with the Sunni area devastated by attacks from US-backed Shi'i state. Sudan lost its south and Somalia lost its state government as a result of the external intervention.

The Israeli occupation forces devastated Lebanon through the occupation of the South during the period of 1978-2006, the 1982 invasion, and the 2006 war.

The Palestinian people have been subjected to continuous Israeli wars of subjugation, oppression, and repression, particularly during the wars of 1948, 1956, 1967, 1982, 2009, 2012, and 2014, as well as the two Uprisings of 1988-1993 and 2000-2005. The Gaza Strip is still under a tight Israeli siege, with about two million Palestinians blockaded in the largest prison in the world.

It is so sad that the people of the Middle East are subjected to all of these horrors for no other reasons than looting their natural resources and implementing plots for the achievement of the Zionist plan for an Israeli empire from the Nile to the Euphrates. 

This article aims at documenting these facts for readers, researchers, and future generations to explain to them what is really going on, as they cannot get that from the Zionist-dominated media in our time.
