Moshe Sharett was Israeli's first Foreign Minister from 1948-1956, and was Prime Minister from 1954-1956.
Below is an excerpt from his diary, in which he says israel must continuously create “enemies” in order to control the Jewish masses, and to succeed with zionist expansion.
The israeli government and American zionists tried to suppress the diary's publication, but finally backed off, reasoning that legal action would create more publicity for the diary.
Excerpts from the diary's preface by Livia Rokach…
No longer does the Zionist movement hide its true intentions. Its "special relationship" with the United States propels it like a juggernaut in pursuit of imperial goals.
The Camp David Accords, and the subsequent Reagan Plan introduced in September 1982, were grounded in lies about lsrael's "security needs" and so-called Arab threats to that security.
The Reagan administration approved Israel’s 1982 invasion in advance. Upon his retirement in May 1985, U.S. Ambassador to Israel Samuel Lewis revealed that in December 1981, Israeli Defense Minister Ariel Sharon outlined his plans for the impending invasion to U.S. envoy Philip Habib (Washington Post, 24 May 1985).
The Reagan administration and lsrael's Likud government had three objectives: the destruction of the Palestinians in Lebanon, the redrawing of Lebanon’s borders, and the reduction of Syria to manageable proportions. The invasion was dubbed "Operation Peace for Galilee." It – plus “Operation Litani” of 1978 -- were part of Zionist strategy for Lebanon and Palestine that was formulated in the 1950s, and is still being carried out. A key part of that strategy is to steal water from neighboring states.
On November 6, 1918, a committee of British mandate officials and zionist leaders suggested a northern boundary for a Jewish Palestine "from the North Litani River up to Banias."
In 1919 at the Paris peace conference, the zionist movement demanded that the boundaries of a Jewish state include the Lebanese district of Bint Jubayl, plus all the territories up to and including the Litani River.
The zionist military forces that invaded Palestine in 1948 also occupied part of the district of Marjayun and Bint Jubayl in Lebanon, and reached the Litani River. However they were forced to withdraw under international pressure, since France controlled Lebanon.
In 1954, President Eisenhower's envoy Eric Johnston proposed a formula of sharing the Litani waters among Lebanon, Syria and Israel. The idea of sharing caused Israeli leaders to become enraged. They renewed their demands for Lebanese water, and threatened to use force against Lebanon if the Litani River water was used to develop South Lebanon.
Israel’s 1967 war allowed Jews to capture the headwaters of the Jordan and Manias rivers. Israel also destroyed Jordan's East Ghor Canal and its Khaled Dam on the Yarmuk River, which flows into lsrael's Nahariva Pool.
In “Operation Litani” (1978) Israel didn't secure the Litani River, but it did establish firm control over the Wazzani River, which flows into the Jordan, plus almost the entire length of the Hasbani River.
During Israel’s 1982 invasion, the entire length of the Litani River came under Israeli control.

Moshe Sharret’s diary reveals that zionists have always sought to have a Maronite-dominated puppet government in Lebanon. This – plus the annihilation of Palestinians in Lebanon – was the reason for Israel’s 1982 invasion. Israel installed Bashir Gemayel as its puppet viceroy in Lebanon, but Gemayal was killed before he could take office.
Sharret’s diary shows that Israeli policy stresses deliberate acts of aggression, intended to generate Arab hostility and thus create pretexts for armed territorial expansion.
The 1948 Deir Yassin massacre, and the June 2, 1980 bombing, are products of what israelis call #ff0000">"sacred terrorism."
The more the world tries to understand the situation in the Middle East, the more the zionist organizations in the United States, acting in concert with israel, try to fog it up.
israel's wars against the Arabs in 1967 and 1982 obliterated its David image, and confirmed it as the Goliath of the Middle East.
FROM THE DIARY
“The conclusions from Dayan's words are clear: Israel has no international obligations, and no economic problems. The question of peace is nonexistent. Israel must see the sword as the main, if not the only, instrument with which to keep its morale high and to retain its moral tension. Toward this end, Israel must invent dangers by adopting the method of provocation-and-revenge. And above all, let us hope for a new war with the Arab countries, so that we may finally get rid of our troubles and acquire our space. As Ben Gurion said, it would be worthwhile to pay an Arab a million pounds just to start a war.” (26 May 1955, 1021)
