Interestingly, it's not the first time that Yuri Orlov (Nicolas Cage), an international arms smuggler in the 2005 film "Lord of War", directed by Andrew Niccol and starring Nicolas Cage, who could not find a movie theater for screening in Europe at the time of its release, says in a harsh dialogue between them when he is detained by an Interpol agent (Ethan Hawke): “Sometimes it's embarrassing to have his fingerprints on the guns. Sometimes he needs a freelancer like me to supply forces he can't be seen supplying. So. You call me evil, but unfortunately for you, I'm a “necessary evil...”

The State of Israel, established by the decision of the UN, has succeeded in becoming a state and being recognized by emphasizing that democracy will be the guarantee of human rights and freedoms in its message to the world to be recognized as a state in the Middle East. With the activity of Jewish lobbies in the Western world since its establishment, it gained special privileges that would also disable the decisions taken by the Security Council, and did not comply with any decision taken on it. It continues to be used against the Islamic world by global imperialism as a "necessary evil" both by Western regimes and by means of Zionist-Evangelist lobbies.

The recent attacks on Gaza, just after the US elections, have once again shown that despite Barrack Obama's speech in Cairo in 2009, he said that "Israel's, Palestinian, American and world's interests lie in the two-state solution" under the pressure of the Israeli lobby on the one hand and the Christian Zionist (Evangelist) lobby on the other, Washington's unconditional support to Israeli state terrorism will continue during the Second Obama period. In fact, the Obama administration, which is in the grip of the lobbies and the Republicans in the parliament, recurrently repeated that they supported Israel's "right to self-defense" in the last Gaza attacks is not an unexpected attitude. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has a problematic relationship with Obama, because the bilateral relations are not as they idealized and the playmaker could not continue with his own way sometimes; in order to strengthen his hand, he seeks many ways to achieve many goals in one move with the Gaza attack, that is, to create a synergy for his own benefit. We can list them as follows:

First: It should be known that the entire Jewish world living in and outside the Israel is not in a monobloc structure. Therefore, to give the message to its supporters and hesitant voters that it is the guardian of the security strategy of Zionism and Israel by securing its possible new power and strengthening its infrastructure before the January 2013 elections. Indeed, the name of the attacks, inspired by the Torah, and putting a metaphor like "cloud column" shows what the "background" is.

Second: Testing and approving U.S. reflexes against the Palestinian issue and Israel on a global scale in the new era.

Third: Thus, to prove once again to the world public that Obama stands by Israel against the thesis that the Second Obama period will develop Middle East policies that will put Israel in trouble. Because, as we have stated before, Israel wanted the USA to develop a mobility within the strategy determined by it in the Palestine issue. Although Obama has not visited Israel since the day he was president, the Netanyahu administration has always tried to show the world that Obama is with them. For example, it is thought that the Republican candidates in the USA accusing President Obama of leaving Israel alone in the international arena and unprotected in the region will do more harm than good. In other words, they will be under the idea that Israel's position and image will serve as a catalyst for its position and image, which surprised many, especially Republicans, by saying that before the American election, Romney gave interviews on American television while still in Israel, Israeli Defense Secretary Ehud Barak said that during his political and military career, he did not see another president who was more sensitive to Israel's security than Obama.

Fourth: To measure whether Muslim Brotherhood, which has 84 years of Islamic opposition position and of which attitude towards Zionism is known in the process, will dare to use the power and leverage of the Morsi administration on the Palestinian Issue, which Israel strongly opposed or even feared after the rule of Hosni Mubarak, with whom it is allied, and which the United States has been hesitant and cautious about. Because Morsi demanded a relationship with the US based on "mutual respect" and emphasized that the Camp David Accords included not only peace with Israel but also the end of the occupation of Palestine.

Fifth: At a time when foreign policy experts in the US say that the US may begin direct government-level contacts with Iran in the coming months, that this will be perhaps the last diplomatic effort to prevent a military attack on Iran's nuclear facilities, Israel has such a wide-ranging effort. With the foresight that the attack will not be a Palestinian liberation struggle without Iran's involvement, to draw Iran into chaos and thus block a possible US-Iranian contact from the Iran front with the thesis that Iran will reject from the very beginning, while the Obama government's approach to the Gaza attacks is obvious.

It is a fact that systematic and rapid changes are taking place all over the world and nation states have begun to lose their sphere of influence. In this new formation, it seems to have evolved towards the "global state", which also means flattening the world. The Obama administration is trying to adopt the "leadership from behind" approach as a managerial and strategic political stance rather than being a power factor directly intervening in the region. However, it should not be forgotten that both Obama and the US administrations before him always put forward projections that prioritize interests whenever interests and ideals conflict. They are not in favor of human rights and democracy when it comes to security perceptions and economic interests. This attitude and approach attracted the attention in the First Obama period and emphasized that the most important thing was the interests of the USA in domestic and foreign politics. Earlier in the last election campaign, Vice President Joe Biden said, "Bin Laden is dead, but General Motors is rocksteady!" It has been observed that the slogan is not just a slogan. It seems that this will continue as an important practical rhetoric in the second Obama period.

“Evil does not come from outside our civilization, from a separate realm where we call ‘primitive’,” Michael Mann wrote in his book “The Dark Side of Democracy." It is the civilization itself that creates evil” he says.

It seems unlikely in the near future that the Western world will cease to see and make Israel “necessary evil”, which it created basically as “evil”. Considering that Israel will continue with the hawk-eyed prime minister Netanyahu government in the upcoming period, it is understood that it will maintain its position with hysterical seizures rather than acting within a legitimate state paradigm.

As for the Islamic world… Unfortunately, it is the most important handicap before us that it does not or cannot develop a real common security policy. This is the main issue that Prime Minister Erdoğan is focusing on in the contacts with Egypt. In this respect, the AK Party government considers that the support for itself in foreign policy will increase with the coming to power of the Morsi administration in Egypt, and thinks that it will strengthen its hand in the Palestinian issue and against Israel. He emphasized that the Arab League and the Islamic Cooperation Organization took an approach in the position of ‘the blind leading the blind’ and that this situation should be reformed as soon as possible. Unfortunately, while the aforementioned organizations cannot even adopt a ‘reactive’ strategy, Erdoğan talks about a ‘proactive’ policy. In this paradigm, which is in Erdoğan's network, Iran and Saudi Arabia should be included in this paradigm and a power shield and decision mechanism that will also include the Gulf countries should be formed. However, if the necessary steps are taken for this consensus, the thesis of Ali Bulaç's establishment of a "Common Defense and Islamic Peace Force" will also find its value.

The wind created by Prime Minister Erdoğan's “one minute” in front of the whole world and the Mavi Marmara incident, breaking the strings with Israel in the Islamic world, undoubtedly, Iran's “we will wipe Israel from the earth, from the map!” It must have understood or understood in Iran that it is much more effective and realistic than its rhetoric.

Finally, in Erdoğan's speech at Cairo University, Surah Ali ‘Imran 139, which stated that "Do not falter or grieve, for you will have the upper hand, if you are ˹true˺ believers." His prioritization of Islamic references by reading his verse, saying that "Gaza massacre will definitely be asked to account" and describing Israel as a terrorist state is as important and hopeful as "one minute", provided that it is not rhetorical.
