“The Oded Yinon plan is an Israeli
strategic plan to ensure Israeli regional superiority. It insists and stipulates
that Israel must reconfigure its
geo-political environment through the balkanization of the surrounding Arab
states into smaller and weaker states.
Israeli strategists viewed Iraq as their biggest strategic challenge from an Arab state.
This is why Iraq was
outlined as the centerpiece to the balkanization of the Middle East and the Arab World. In
Iraq, on the basis
of the concepts of the Yinon Plan, Israeli strategists have called for the division of Iraq
into a Kurdish
state and two Arab states, one for Shiite Muslims and the other for Sunni Muslims. The first
this was a war between Iraq and Iran, which the Yinon Plan discusses.
The Atlantic, in 2008, and the U.S.
military’s Armed Forces Journal, in 2006, both published widely circulated
maps that closely followed the outline of the
Yinon Plan. Aside from a divided Iraq, which the Biden Plan
also calls for, the Yinon Plan calls for a divided Lebanon,
Egypt, and Syria. The partitioning of Iran, Turkey,
Somalia, and Pakistan also all fall into line with these views. The Yinon Plan also calls
for dissolution in North Africa
and forecasts it as starting from Egypt and then spilling over into Sudan, Libya, and the
rest of the region.
Greater Israel” requires
the breaking up of
the existing Arab states
into small states.
“The plan operates on two essential premises. To survive, Israel must 1) become
an imperial regional
power, and 2) must effect the division of the whole area into
small states by the dissolution of all existing Arab
states. Small here will depend
on the ethnic or sectarian composition of each state. Consequently, the Zionist
hope is that sectarian-based
states become Israel’s satellites and, ironically, its
source of moral legitimation… This is not a new
idea, nor does it surface for the
first time in Zionist strategic thinking. Indeed, fragmenting all Arab states into
smaller units has been a recurrent
"Viewed in this
context, the war on Syria and Iraq
part of a process of Israeli territorial expansion."
