The main Zionist goal in Afghanistan and Pakistan is to "pacify" these nations to allow the Turkmenistan-Afghanistan-Pakistan-India (TAPI) gas pipeline to be built. This line, once completed, could be extended to China. This project is the pipe dream of Joseph A. Maiman (a.k.a. Josef, Yosef, Yossi), one of the most powerful men in Israel.
Yosef A. Maiman
The Jerusalem Post of 23 July 2004, described Maiman as one of the leading miners of the gas of Central Asia, specifically Turkmenistan:
Though his sprawling multi-billion-dollar empire stretches from Channel 10 TV, where he is a partner, to Central Asian gas fields, where he is a leading miner, Maiman was born humbly, in a displaced persons camp in Germany, and grew up in Peru.
Maiman's Merhav Group started off in 1976 with Third World debt-financing, but later diversified into agriculture, energy solutions and telecoms. Today, it is the Republic of Turkmenistan's single largest foreign partner.
Just two weeks ago, the Israeli foreign ministry announced it would open a new embassy in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, "saying it was a natural step in burgeoning bilateral ties, and reflected a new momentum in Israel's overall ties with the Central Asian countries," according to the Jerusalem Post of 21 May 2009.
Turkmenistan is reported to be "the second largest holder of gas reserves in the world, with some 28 trillion cubic meters of proven gas reserves," second only to Russia. The "former" Israeli Mossad agent Joseph A. Maiman is reportedly the owner or co-owner of much of that gas and has been the key person managing the development of Turkmenistan's gas fields.
If the TAPI pipeline were to be completed, the Israelis connected with Maiman and Merhav would collect tens of billions of dollars by selling the gas of Turkmenistan to Pakistan, India, and China. This is certainly one of the key Israeli strategic goals in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The pipeline is meant to pass through Kandahar, the area where Canadians are serving and which Canada is obliged to defend until 2012.
Mr. Maiman is also a business partner of Rupert Murdoch and Ronald Lauder. In November 2002, Yossi Maiman and the former head of the Mossad, Shabtai Shavit, launched a new political party with the former head of the Shin Bet, Ya'acov Perry. These people are all closely tied to the false-flag terror attacks of 9-11. Their roles are described in my chapter entitled, "The Architecture of Terror."
To really understand why the Obama administration is sending more troops to Afghanistan and waging war in Pakistan it is essential to understand what is at stake and who will benefit from the TAPI pipeline. Read all
