In 2005, the Nobel Prize in Economic Science was awarded to
Israeli mathematician and game theory specialist Robert J. Aumann, co-founder
of the Center for Rationality at Hebrew University. This Jerusalem resident
explains: �the entire school of thought that we have developed here in Israel�
has turned �Israel into the leading authority in this field.�
Israeli strategists rely on game theory models to ensure the
intended response to staged provocations and manipulated crises. With the use
of game theory algorithms, those responses become predictable, even foreseeable
-- within an acceptable range of probabilities. The waging of war �by way of
deception� is now a mathematical discipline.
Such �probabilistic� war planning enables Tel Aviv to deploy
serial provocations and well-timed crises as a force multiplier to project
Israeli influence worldwide. For a skilled agent provocateur, the target can be a person, a company,
an economy, a legislature, a nation or an entire culture -- such as Islam. With
a well-modeled provocation, the anticipated reaction can even become a powerful
weapon in the Israeli arsenal.
For instance, a skilled game theorist could foresee that, in
response to a 9/11-type mass murder, �the mark� (the U.S.) would deploy its
military to avenge that attack. With phony intelligence fixed around a preset
goal, a game theory algorithm could anticipate that those forces might well be
redirected to invade Iraq -- not to avenge 9/11 but to pursue the expansionist
goals of Greater Israel.
To provoke that invasion required the displacement of an
inconvenient truth (Iraq played no role in 9/11) with what lawmakers and the
public could be deceived to believe. The emotionally wrenching nature of that
incident was essential in order to induce Americans to abandon rational
analysis and to facilitate their reliance on false intelligence.
Americans were (predictably) provoked by that mass murder.
The foreseeable reaction -- shock, grief and outrage -- made it easier for them
to believe that an infamous Iraqi Evil Doer was to blame. The
displacement of facts with beliefs lies at heart of how Israel, the
world�s leading authority in game theory, induces other nations to wage their
False but plausible
To displace facts with credible fiction requires a period of
�preparing the minds� so that the mark will believe a pre-staged
storyline. Thus the essential role of a complicit media to promote: (a) a
plausible present danger (Iraqi weapons of mass destruction), (b) a plausible
villain (a former ally rebranded as an Evil Doer), and (c) a plausible
post-Cold War threat to national security (The Clash of Civilizations
Reports from inside Israeli intelligence suggest that the
war-planners who induced the 2003 invasion of Iraq began their psyops campaign
no later than 1986 when an Israeli Mossad operation (Operation Trojan) made it
appear that the Libyan leadership was transmitting terrorist directives from
Tripoli to their embassies worldwide. Soon thereafter, two U.S. soldiers were
killed by a terrorist attack in a Berlin discotheque. Ten days later, U.S.,
British and German aircraft dropped 60 tons of bombs on Libya.
The following is a senior Mossad operative�s assessment
(published in 1994 in The Other Side of Deception) of that 1986
operation -- five years before the Gulf War and 15 years before the murderous
provocation that preceded the invasion of Iraq:
After the bombing of Libya, our friend
Qadhafi is sure to stay out of the picture for some time. Iraq and Saddam
Hussein are the next target. We�re starting now to build him up as the big
villain. It will take some time, but in the end, there�s no doubt that it�ll
Could this account by former Mossad case officer Victor
Ostrovsky be correct? If so, Tel Aviv�s Iraqi operation required more
pre-staging than its relatively simple Libyan deception.
America the mark
From a game theory perspective, what is the probability
of a violent reaction in the Middle East after more than a half-century of
serial Israeli provocations -- in an environment where the U.S. is identified
(correctly) as the Zionist state�s special friend and protector?
During the 1967 War, the Israeli killing of 34 Americans
aboard the USS Liberty confirmed that a U.S. president (Democrat Lyndon
Johnson) could be induced to condone murderous behavior by Israel. Two decades
later, Operation Trojan confirmed that a U.S. president (Republican Ronald
Reagan) could be induced to attack an Arab nation based on intelligence fixed
For more than six decades, the U.S. has armed, financed,
befriended and defended Zionism. This �special relationship� includes the
U.S.-discrediting veto of dozens of U.N. resolutions critical of Israeli
conduct. From a game theory perspective, how difficult was it to anticipate
that -- out of a worldwide population of 1.3 billion Muslims -- 19 Muslim men
could be induced to perpetrate a murderous act in response to U.S support for
Israel�s lengthy mistreatment of Arabs and Muslims, particularly Palestinians?
Israeli game theorists operate not from the Center for
Morality or the Center for Justice but from the Center for Rationality. As modeled by Zionist war planners,
game theory is devoid of all values except one: the ability to anticipate -- within
an acceptable range of probabilities -- how �the mark� will react when
provoked. Thus we see the force-multiplier potential for those who wage war
with well-planned provocations and well-timed crises.
Israeli behavior is often immoral and unjust but that does
not mean it is irrational. For Colonial Zionists committed to the pursuit of an
expansionist agenda, even murderous provocations are rational because the
response can be mathematically modeled, ensuring the results are reasonably
foreseeable. That alone is sufficient for a people who, as God�s chosen,
consider it their right to operate above the rule of law.
