Hi readers. This dual citizenchip thing probably wouldn’t make any difference in a world populated by and governed by sanity, Christian ideals, and people who practiced one, or the other. But there’s a growing body of evidence that’s not the case.
But here’s a disproportionate number of people in positions of power in the US are actually Israeli citizens presumably with [hopefully] divided loyalties. As opposed to singular loyalty to Israel. And when the media reports an ‘American’ journalist, tourist, contractor, whatever, in trouble somewhere in the Middle East, the person stands a good chance of being Israeli. Moving around under a US citizenship disguise.
The reality is that the behavior of Israel probably makes life dangerous for any Israeli wanting to travel outside Israel, Europe and the US. Maybe East Asia. Anywhere else they’ll have ample reason to mistrust, to treat with extreme prejudice anyone identified as an Israeli.
But that’s okay because they can be US citizens and when they get shot or abducted the US President will make a fiery statement and threaten to bomb the bejesus out of anyone guilty of mistreating those Israeli, almost certainly Mossad agents, masquerading as Americans. And the US news services will somehow fail to notice the person wasn’t an American, at all.
And Americans do get indignant when that sort of thing happens to ‘Americans’ even it it’s people who only think of the citizenship issues as another tool to further the interests of their real country.
It’s fresh on my mind because of this Steven Sotloff Israeli someone’s supposed to have beheaded. But it probably shouldn’t be. That’s peanuts. Hell we’ve got at least one Israeli in the US Supreme Court, several in Congress, no telling how many in the Pentagon and one heading Homeland Security. Or was, if not currently.
All masquerading as Americans.
So let’s not think about that. We’ve got important aliens coming across from Mexico wanting to mow the lawn.
