Trump's statement recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and bringing the US embassy to this city is evidence of the deepest intellectual, moral, psychological and organizational crisis of the American and world elite.
It would seem that something special - Jerusalem has always been perceived as the capital city of the people of Israel. But the fact is that he also became the spiritual center of the world. It was in this city that Jesus Christ preached and died a martyr's death - the Son of God. Jerusalem is such a center for Muslims along with Mecca. Here is one of the greatest and most ancient mosques. Islam recognizes and honors Jesus Christ - Issa, as well as the prophets of the Old Testament, especially Moses. Thus, the announcement of Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish state by many believers is perceived as an attempt by the Israeli authorities to privatize the spiritual center of the world.
There is a political aspect to this event. It is in the fact that the international community regards the eastern part of Jerusalem as belonging to Palestine and occupied illegally, which is reflected in the relevant UN decisions. The announcement of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel actually puts an end to the hopes of the Palestinians to find their own state.
The action of the American president is actually perceived as anti-Arab. The result - mass protests around the world. Moreover, sharp statements were made by Turkey - a secular state, but historically focused on Islam.
And so serious an event, oddly enough, due attention is not paid to either the press or analysts. The published estimates boil down to the fact that Trump took this step for the sake of strengthening his position in the American establishment and society. With the analysis of this assumption and begin. To establish its credibility, it is necessary to characterize Trump's personality and social base, as well as the forces in whose interests a concrete decision has been made.
45-th President of the United States represents the layers of business that are focused on re-industrialization, the restoration of the full sovereignty of America, its liberation from transnational influence in foreign and domestic policy. This defined Trump's foothold in society. It includes a large and medium-sized business that is not part of the transnational elites and therefore has lost a lot as a result of the implementation of the globalization program in the 90 and subsequent years. Accordingly, transnational elites and the associated part of the American establishment have become irreconcilable opponents of the president. This also determines the attitude towards Trump in the international arena. Leaders of transnational elites in other countries see him as a destroyer of the current structure of the world order. In turn, political parties and movements of the West, focused on restoring the sovereignty of their countries, perceive it as an example to follow.
Hit by rating
Trump clearly lacks qualifications in geopolitics. This, in particular, is manifested in the fact that it puts the economy higher. This is evidenced by his actions and statements about NATO and global American partnership initiatives - the Pacific (TTP) and the Atlantic (TAP). TTP he honored the decree on the US withdrawal from it, and on the second draft he simply turned off the consultations. By declaring that NATO was outdated, Trump thereby jeopardized the very existence of the bloc. In fact, these are serious blows to the basics of traditional American geopolitics of the last 60 years.
As for the intellectual potential of the US President, it should be recognized as high. It is necessary to possess sufficient intelligence and flexibility in order to hold out in office under organized large-scale harassment and domination of opponents in the information space.
From the analysis of Trump's social base, the statement about Jerusalem did not add a rating to him - the question of which city would be the capital of Israel or any other state is completely indifferent to a purely American business. The main thing is to have a favorable business climate. But his improvement after such a statement can be expected only in Israel. Did not approve of this step and the American elite. According to media reports, the State Department, the Pentagon, and the US intelligence agencies even tried to prevent it.
So who did Trump want to please? The answer is obvious: the Israeli lobby in the United States, the Jewish financial tycoons. And, of course, the Israeli government, although this is the last.
It can be stated that the statement was hardly intended to raise the personal rating - Trump lost more, not only in the US, but also in other countries, primarily in the Arab countries, with whom he had recently diligently established relations with Saudi Arabia. Yes, and the Turkish leadership has additional reasons to continue to drift towards the Russian Federation.
Muddy water strategy
Trump's reputational losses are poorly compensated for by increasing his rating in pro-Israel circles. To understand the act of the president, it is necessary to turn to an analysis of the characteristics of the highest American and transnational elites. Today, it can be stated that it is precisely these strata that manage to exert an effective influence on the recalcitrant head of state. They determine the priorities of American geopolitics, as well as the basic principles and methods for its implementation.
There are two main groups in this part of the American elite. The first of these consists of supporters of the global concept of domination of the Anglo-Saxon race, more precisely, its elite. This is a model of a unipolar world in which the existence of a single full-fledged state system with the London-Washington axis is assumed, which forms the backbone of Western civilization. The basis of this part of the elite is represented by transnational banking and industrial structures associated with the United States as a state.
For the USA, this model means:
1. Militarily, it retains absolute military superiority over the rest of the world, mainly due to the level of technology that is unattainable for other countries, maintaining control over the armed forces, primarily European countries that are members of NATO.
2. In economic terms - ensuring control over the main planetary raw materials and communications, strengthening the dollar as the only global reserve currency, maintaining the dominant position of the United States in the world economic system.
3. In the spiritual sphere - ideological dominance by any means, including the military, the preservation of scientific and technological advantage.
The second group is represented by supporters of the global concept of a mondial, that is, one world. In contrast to the monopolar model, this ultimately implies the elimination of all states, including the United States, in favor of a single one in which the transnational elite will dominate, and the rest of humanity, divided by the degree of closeness to it, will serve it. This concept has a mystical basis dating back to Old Testament times. She affirms the inevitability of the domination of the Talmudic elite under the leadership of the new messiah (machiachas). This part of the highest echelon of the US political elite is represented by the world's dominant transnational banking structures, to a lesser extent related to the American statehood and the domination of the dollar.
But at the stage of creating conditions for the formation of a unified world government the main instrument for the implementation of this group’s geopolitics is the United States. Therefore, today both groups still pursue similar goals - to preserve American power and influence. However, there are already signs that supporters of mondialism are beginning to reorient themselves toward other centers of power, particularly China. This is largely due to the apparent inability of the United States to ensure global domination, and, accordingly, to solve the problem of establishing the authority of world government. And it is very disturbing builders of a monopolar model. Apparently, the complete and final failure of the geopolitical operation "Arab Spring", and especially the expulsion of the United States from Syria with the deprivation of their ability to maintain a reliably controlled bridgehead in this region, forced an urgent search for a way out. After all, what happened? It was not possible to create a puppet Kurdish state from part of the territory of Iraq and Syria — Iraq and Turkey came out sharply against it. Iraq, in the event of such a move, would finally get closer to Iran and become its reliable ally. Turkey could withdraw from NATO, thereby exposing its southern flank and putting at risk the very existence of the bloc, and with it the American military-political control over Europe. And this is goodbye to the hopes of world domination of both the Anglo-Saxons and the transnationals. In Syria, it’s already obvious that the Americans will have to curtail their illegal bases. Moreover, they lose all meaning: what should the US military experts do in isolated desert enclaves? In fact, the United States in the Middle East does not have any reliably controlled state, let alone puppet states. All local governments have their own, and clearly multi-vector policy, focusing on several world centers of power. "We have no regular friends, there are permanent interests." This truth, the former loyal allies of the Anglo-Saxons learned not worse than their teachers.
In the Pacific, against the backdrop of a powerful Chinese expansion, the American elite and Trump's young Kim Jong-un wiped his nose. The DPRK, having created the Hwason-14 ICBM and especially the Hwason-15, has placed the entire territory of the United States at risk of nuclear retaliation. What remains for the states?
Here we must remember that an important factor determining the failures of American geopolitics is a pronounced general decrease in the intellectual potential of the current elite. It is enough to compare such boulders as Kissinger or Brzezinski with the recent US Secretary of State Kerry and his assistant Nuland or the current US representative to the UN Nikki Haley with her predecessors 60 – 80's. The general intellectual degradation of the American elite is sharply aggravated by the lack of time. As a result, only relatively simple decisions can be made that do not require much mental effort or significant organizational and resource potential. The choice is also limited - from existing proven strategies of behavior. It remains the only tool of "soft power" - the creation of chaos in the hope that, having created instability in the region, it will be possible to repeat the "Arab spring" in the new version. In such an option, a declaration of recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel fits well as the first step towards unleashing if not a big war, then certainly serious upheavals. To which the US will try to enter as a "peacemaker" with the hope of restoring influence. It can be considered a weighty basis for Trump's extravagant statement.
However, there is another assumption. The above-mentioned degradation of intellectual potential gives rise to an increasingly pronounced messianism, the confidence that it is she, the world elite, who must and is able to determine the new global order. The philosophical basis of such views is all the same mystical propositions, sometimes drawn from a very distant past and having nothing in common with realities. In particular, the key sacral event that determines the universal and unshakable power of the elites is the phenomenon of the Messiah, in Jewish - machihah, who must sit on the throne in the restored Solomon temple on the foundation preserved from 77 AD. Today on this place stands the greatest shrine of Islam - the Al-Aqsa Mosque. The separation of Jerusalem and the categorical disagreement of the Palestinian authorities with its transfer do not allow the realization of a sacred act that provides the mystical foundations of global domination.
Recall that the key element of any power is its spiritual component, without which it is unstable, if it can be realized at all. And he must have a concrete material embodiment. Moreover, the value of the latter increases in inverse proportion to the strength of the spiritual foundations proper: the smaller they are, the greater the need for a temple.
By recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and pushing the Israelis to transfer all institutions to the city with the expulsion of the Palestinian population from it, world elites are provoking large-scale protests that, with the participation of militants banned in Russia by the IG and other similar organizations, will pass into a phase of internal armed conflict. At the same time, it is quite possible that it is the Islamists who will go to the explosion of the Al-Aqsa mosque - for this they have no moral or other brakes, especially after they have trained in Syria, including in mosques as ancient as the Jerusalem mosques. Further, the powerful Israeli army and special services suppress an armed insurgency, and the site for the temple of Solomon is ready.
