Kissinger: 'Israel won't exist in 10 years'

This quote was first reported years ago, and I still haven't decided whether it's creditable that he really said this.

How many years ago? Because if it's 10, he's already wrong.

Reminds me of the time we had a guy who came here, posted on our forums, and said San Francisco was going to be destroyed in a rain of flaming sulphur (his words). Followed by much hilarity when we all went checking web cams in the area the next day, only to discover a complete absence of any form of havoc or mayhem, let alone pyroclastic flows.

What would be really hilarious, would be to discover that [1] Kissinger actually did utter this statement, and [2] he did so before 2005, as IWS has just said above.

Of course, whilst the Middle East is usually a vast graveyard for political predictions, there is one prediction that can safely be made about the region, and it's this: it'll continue to be filled with people actively seeking to kill each other for sometime to come. The seething hatreds that have built up there are far too intensely visceral and deep-seated to vanish overnight.

Well, if Israel is forced to resolve their dispute with the Palestinians and it ends up going the One-State-Solution route, then Israel - in the sense of Israel as a "Jewish State" - will cease to exist.

As a political entity - a state named "Israel" - I think it's here to stay.

Nah, it's from 2012 - I think it was supposed to have been right after Bibi started pissing of Obama.

Kissinger, one of the few things you can say to his credit, doesn't tend to obviously jump to the side of Israel whenever there's a conflict of interest between the US and Israel.

Hasn't Kissinger been hauled into court on War Crimes charges yet?

How long will this scofflaw be allowed to mock justice?

100% of the reports I find on this, are from two years ago, and NONE are supported by anything approaching responsible journalism of any kind.

And the lie put forward (apparently through gossip columnist Cindy Adams, who says she heard it from someone else, not Henry) was that Israel would cease to exist within 10 years.

But it was refuted firmly by everyone directly associated with Kissinger, at the time it was conjured up by Cindy and her unnamed lying friend.

Not that it would have any significance whatsoever, even if he had said it.

@Igor: exactly. The thing is, I can't find anything from Cindy or Kissinger since, either way. Just people claiming to know what Kissinger would or wouldn't say.

My best guess is that Kissinger has decided not to comment directly, to avoid getting baited. If Cindy's claim is untrue, rumourmongering is a clever way to fish for statements, and Kissinger might not want to reward it.

On the other hand, Kissinger might have started the rumour, the machiavellian fucker. It would be an adroit move.
