51. Yo, Blair! [Lobster #52 (Winter 2006/7)]
... in the Middle East had begun to embarrass sections of the London media, normally cheerleaders for 'the special relationship'. Patience Wheatcroft wrote of 'the craven kow-towing of the British Government to the Americans' in MI6's house journal, The Sunday Telegraph (9 July 2006). What that 'kow-towing' looks like was illustrated in 'Blair beefed up his Iran speech to please Bush' (Sunday Telegraph 28 May 2006) in which Toby Harnden and Patrick Hennessy reported: 'Tony Blair made significant changes to one of his most important foreign policy speeches after bowing to American objections....The Prime Minister changed key passages on possible action against Iran, climate change, and a proposed shake-up of the ...

52. Empire's Workshop (Book review) [Lobster #52 (Winter 2006/7)]
... any attempt to achieve social equity as leading at best to declining productivity and at worst political turmoil.' Such an attempt, we note, merits attention in present day Latin America, where the growth of the left, nationalist movements presents the US with its own dilemma or problem: how to confront a geopolitical threat (Venezuelan alliances with Iran, for instance) when the old methods of Reaganite-sponsored terror are no longer available.( [3]) Grandin's book is wide ranging and detailed in its historical accounts of US interventions, of the personalities and ideas involved, and the failures of free market economics. For the reader educated by valuable past Lobster articles on the influence ...

53. The Case Against Israel (Book review) [Lobster #52 (Winter 2006/7)]
... Propaganda associating Israeli repression of Palestinians as the righteous response of the victims of the Holocaust has been repeated throughout the mass media. President Ahmadinejad's suggestion that Holocaust victims might more properly be compensated by land located in Europe or in the countries that victimized them was misreported, then highly circulated to fuel, instead, the notion of a rabid anti-Semitic Iran. From the height of the network to the lawyers' boardrooms, and the doctors' lounges, the pro-Israel supporters of the network aggressively attack as "anti-Semites" any critical voices. Through local intimidation and malicious intervention in the professions, the zealots defend Israeli policy and leaders, contribute money, organize voters, and run for office ...

... 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 given the migration of suicidal techniques from Iran to Palestine and thence to Iraq and to Afghanistan, but still a major analytical leap that is not justified by the facts). Carefully placed warnings derived from torture-derived intelligence, or just downright disinformation, can then put Western security forces into a thorough tizzy. The French role It gets worse. Inside the West, there are the ...

... begun well before the dismemberment of the Ottoman empire after that war, and other events that set the context for the subsequent Western interventions in the region. He not only draws on the history but talks to those who helped make it. These include Christopher 'Monty' Woodhouse whose covert activities in the region after the Second World War included the Iran coup of 1953. This is Fisk's observation on that 1997 meeting at Woodhouse's retirement home in Oxford: 'The coup against Mossadeq, the return of the Shah, was, in Woodhouse's mind, a holding operation, a postponement of history. There was also the little matter of the AIOC, the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company- later British Petroleum ...

57. Islamic Imperialism: a history (book review) [Lobster #51 (Summer 2006)]
... happy with are two things. One is the book's rather cavalier way with the word imperialism, used here to cover anything from pan-Arabism, through foreign conquest, to religious proselytism. The second is its very one-sided account of recent events in the Middle East, so that, for example, the CIA's and MI6's covert toppling of Mossadeq in Iran in 1953 is only mentioned in passing, and the Zionists' seizure of Palestine on the grounds that they had lived there 2000 years before a classic case of colonialism, surely, whatever the excuses for it might be let alone some of the extreme measures some of them resorted to along the way, are not even problemetised ...

58. Robert Kennedy and the Middle East connection [Lobster #51 (Summer 2006)]
... . Bobby's list of enemies was truly awesome. As well as the familiar roll call of big oil, military/industrial interests, Bay of Pigs veterans, the mob and dissidents in the CIA, we can also factor in the Greek Colonels (business partners of Onassis and bankrolling Nixon),( [29]) the Shah of Iran (bitterly opposed to the Kennedys and also bankrolling Nixon),( [30]) LBJ, J. Edgar Hoover and the mob-linked billionaire with a grudge, Aristotle Onassis. We have to ask at this point, what did Bobby Kennedy himself know about Operation Cyanide? Certainly, he was getting in a position to know. ...

... opposed the government's policy of kow-towing to the Americans and blaming the Libyans? Libya is clearly a tricky problem for British foreign policy people. The 'deal' done with Libya was only possible because everyone except David Shayler, apparently knows that Libya didn't do Lockerbie. But HMG doesn't want to embarrass America by pressing it. Now that Iran is again top of the list of America's designated enemies, it is OK to blame them for Lockerbie; and just hope that we forget Libya. On 29 August The Scotsman newspaper in Edinburgh reported that a: 'retired [Scottish police] officer of assistant chief constable rank or higher has testified that the CIA planted the tiny ...
