21. America, Israel and the Israel lobby [Lobster #57 (Summer 2009)]
... East rather than allow the agenda on these to be largely set by the Israel lobby and the Christian Right. It is worth considering how skewed US policy over Israel has been in the recent past. The official US view on Israel after 1949, for instance, was that it was a 'major asset' in the Cold War. With Egypt and Syria dallying with the Soviet bloc during this period this might have had some validity. However Israel did not join or participate in any way in CENTO, the Middle East version of NATO, between 1955 and 1979, the period of that organisation's existence. In any event it could also be considered that part of the reason for ...

22. The History of Espionage, reviewed [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... lavishly and creatively illustrated, large format, (i .e . slightly bigger than A4) glossy paper, coffee-table book on the history of espionage. A former journalist with Newsday, and author of many previous books on spying, Volkman knows the subject and his text is well written. Since the author covers events from ancient Egypt to post-9 /11, what we get are illustrative chapters and treatments of some well known (and some little known) incidents in the history of the subject. This is not an encyclopaedia. I could quibble with his choice of incidents in the post-WW2 era and I could question some of his political judgements, ...

23. The CIA: A history of torture [Lobster #54 (Winter 2007/8)]
... First McCoy tends to conflate the CIA's mind control programme with the development of new methods of interrogation. The mind control programme failed and, at best, the sensory deprivation methods of interrogation were a 'spin-off' from it. Second, the new methods have not supplanted old-fashioned torture, especially when it is being outsourced to Egypt, Syria and Jordan. The old and new methods continue to be used alongside each other. And third, the sensory deprivation methods he describes were used by the British in the 1960s and beyond, most notoriously in Northern Ireland in August 1971.(6 ) The CIA's mind control programme was part of the 1950s' concern with ...

... .....the fight against Israel is not funda-mentally about land. It is about hatred of Jews. It is certainly not about the absence of a separate state of Palestine, which was on offer in 1936, 1948 and 2000, and could have been established at any time between 1948 and 1967 by Jordan and Egypt. The agenda here remains the extermination of the Jewish state itself. The reason is that the Jews are hated, the hatred is rooted in religion, and this hatred lies at the core of the war against the West. ' (pp. 166/7 ) I had not read a Phillips defence of Israel before and it ...

25. Philanthropic imperialism [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... worried. It finds that: 'Foreign governments' efforts to impede democracy assistance – from legal constraints on NGOs to extra-legal forms of harassment – have recently intensified and now seriously impede democracy assistance in a number of states. This backlash is particularly pronounced in the former Soviet states of Eurasia, as well as in China, Venezuela, Egypt, and Zimbabwe. Representatives of democracy assistance NGOs have been harassed, offices closed, and staff expelled. Even more vulnerable are local grantees and project partners who have been threatened, assaulted, prosecuted, imprisoned, and even killed. ' In addition to impeding democracy assistance efforts, 'regimes are adopting proactive approaches, channelling funds to anti ...

26. Fifth Column [Lobster #53 (Summer 2007)]
... dispersed Islamist radicals, increasing Islamism in Eastern Africa and Northern Nigeria. The catalogue could go on. Most truly insurgent groups are small and localised but the mood 'out there' is one of a worthy cause that is managing to do something that has been prayed for by young Arab and Muslim intellectuals since the early days of the Wafd in Egypt – the expulsion of the West from their lands, Caliphate or not. It is only a matter of time before Muslim insurgency brings the war into our territory if only to assert that Arab and Pathan civilians are not the only ones being dismembered by high explosive. Ideological battles within the government This is the context for the Financial Times ...

... , but so are all governments. Yet, as we have seen in Iraq, when central authority goes, sectarian violence soon follows. Any means are permitted, they believe, to stop the West from pushing democracy down their throats and to contain or even imprison dissidents. I do not believe that we should criticise Algeria, Yemen, Egypt or Pakistan for 'trying it on' nor the US and France but we have every right to criticise our elected representatives and civil servants for naively accepting what they are told without checking. The war on terror has been both a threat and a gift to Arab allies. It can now identify Islamists automatically with terrorism (not completely absurd ...

... (June-November 1932), was a significant figure in the Catholic Centre Party and was well connected to both the Vatican and the German army. [4 ] The main German emissary, Ewald von Kleist-Schmenzin, a significant land owner in Prussia with pronounced Christian leanings, met with Lord Lloyd, a former High Commissioner in Egypt, and Sir Robert Vansittart, a career diplomat who actually had little influence with Chamberlain, and Winston Churchill. Churchill told Lord Halifax of the intentions of the German conspirators. Halifax relayed this to Chamberlain.

... of Diem, Presi-dent of Vietnam, are denied. Linked to the murkiness around the Diem affair there were the attempts to assassinate Castro (also denied). Yet other interventions are passed over in silence by Helms just as they are routinely denied in publi-cations of CIA origins or influence: Argentina, Bolivia, Congo, Egypt, France, Greece, Haiti, Italy, Jordan.... Denying and obscuring the CIA's role in various assassinations, coups, and interventions helps create in the mind of Americans a certain view of the history of the past fifty years, of the role of the American government and, in particular, of the role of ...
