This is a massively significant event, and the following is a snapshot of my thoughts and opinions on what may happen next.
This assassination will be seen by Muslims the world over as an attack on them all, carried out by the reviled Great Satan. Any Muslim from any country may react, and we can expect to see terrorist actions for which the Iranians will have absolutely no knowledge or blame.

“Pat Buchanan once referred to Congress as ‘enemy occupied territory.’ He was referring to the Israel Lobby’s ability not only to control the discussion on the Middle East but also to focus its efforts to defeat any congressman who dared criticize the Jewish state. Politicians like Paul Findley, Chuck Percy, William Fulbright, Pete McCloskey, James Traficant and Cynthia McKinney, who were brave enough to stand up against Israel, found themselves out of a job after confronting well-funded and media supported opponents at reelection time, sending the message that it was career ending to do so.” – Philip Giraldi, “Fighting back against the Israel lobby” – The Unz Review, September 24th, 2019.

“Certainly, the voting record in Congress would suggest that there are a lot of congress critters who embrace dual loyalty, with evidence that the loyalty is not so much dual as skewed in favor of Israel. Any bill relating to Israel or to Jewish collective interests, like the currently fashionable topic of anti-Semitism, is guaranteed a 90% plus approval rating no matter what it says or how much it damages actual U.S. interests.” – Philip Giraldi, “No, dual loyalty isn’t okay” – The Unz Review, March 12th, 2019.
Four items in total… all concerned with Britain’s Priti Patel and her visit to Israel managed by the Conservative Friends of Israel’s Lord Polak.
“Questions were rightly raised as to what was behind Patel’s flouting of diplomatic protocol and failure to inform the British Foreign Office about these meetings….it beggars belief that a senior member of the government was oblivious of her own government’s policy of not engaging with Israel on any issues relating to the Golan Heights that might be interpreted as a recognition of Israel’s right to that territory… But perhaps Patel’s own assessment was that the British government has become so one-sided in its support of Israel that she could get away with even this irresponsible act of folly.” – Yossi Mekelberg, “Priti Patel exposed the truth about Britain and Israel” – Arab News, Nov. 18th, 2017.

“Not to be forgotten is the earlier PNAC scheme devised in the late 1990s by the prominent American Jewish neocons, including Irving Kristol, Norman Podhoretz, Paul Wolfowitz, and David Frum, whose goal was less the desire to raise the level of political tolerance in Arab states but rather the compulsive wish to double down on Israeli predominance in the Middle East… As long as the main pivot of US and EU foreign policy revolves around the unquestionable support of Israel and its Western fifth column, actors bent on causing chaos will be waiting in the wings.” (*)

“Jewish villages were built in the place of Arab villages. You do not even know the names of these Arab villages, and I do not blame you because geography books no longer exist… There is not a single place built in this country that did not have a former Arab population.” – Moshe Dayan quoted by Ramzy Baroud in “The balancing act is over: What Elor Azaria taught us about Israel” – Palestine Chronicle, Jan. 19th, 2017.

Just as a reminder, I always include “Occupied Territories” posts in the “Israel Lobby” category also, because I don’t believe that these disgraceful violations of human rights would be tolerated by the rest of the world were it not for Lobby propaganda, threats and smears. -JG.

Water supply to several Palestinian villages reduced, causing shortages
Private Palestinian land was “given” to Israeli farmers – Israel (sic) authorities handed this land over to the Israeli farmers in the 1980s, despite having no authority to hand over any land located within the 1967 boundaries
