An Israeli minister gloated recently that Israeli propaganda of Iran’s nuclear program being ‘existential threat’ has diverted world’s attention from Israel-Palestinian conflict. He was proven right during Obama-Bibi White House meeting on March 5, when both men only talked about Iran and Obama did not raise the illegal Jewish settlement as he did during his last year meeting with Benji Netanyahu.
2012 being US election year, Bibi, has recreated his role as the ‘kingmaker’. US media had reported that Obama offered Bibi additional military aid (Israel receives $3 billion worth military aid each year) if Bibi promise not to ruin Obama’s victory by attacking Iran before November 3 presidential election.
The terrorist panic has boosted Israel’s airport monitoring (ICTS) business ten-fold. This monitoring system existed at all four US airports from where the so-called ’19 hijackers’ boarded the planes involved in 9/11. Israeli army personnel are involved in training security services in the US, Britain, India, Spain, Thailands, Burma, Azerbaijan, Afghanistan, etc. in ‘counter-terrorism’, a technique they have perfected by terrorizing Native Muslim and Christian Palestinians.
However, the fear of a future nuclear Iran has some negetive effects too. On March 19, 2012 – Israeli daily Arutz Sheva reported: “Renowned rabbi Rabbi Aharon Yehuda Leib Shteinman spoke this Saturday night regarding recent developments in Israel, where many great rabbis have fallen ill. Among those known to be seriously ill are Rabbi Yosef Shalom Elyashiv, Rabbi Chaim Pinchas Scheinberg, and Rabbi Yaakov Yosef. Rabbi Shteinman linked the spate of illnesses among Jewish leaders to foreign affairs – specifically, to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Iran’s nuclear program“.
Iranian nuclear hoax has given a big boost to US arms industry. US has been able to sell tens of billions of sophisticate arms to oil rich pro-West absolute rulers who have no regard for democratic institutions or human rights when it comes to their subjects or western interests in the region.
The US (68.5%), Russia, Britain, Italy, France and Israel are world’s top ‘merchants of death’. According to Stockholm International Peace Research Institute latest report – the world’s top five arms importers are India (10%), South Korea (6%), China (5%), Pakistan (5%) and Singapore (4%). Worldwide, arms trade is worth $45-60 billion. Most of these sales are to former western colonies.
The next beneficiaries of war fear have always been American politicians while the suckers being the US taxpayers. Israeli leaders know how to exploit America’s political landscape. Through Jewish lobby groups, Israel funds the corrupt politicians who pledge absolute loyaty to Israel. These politicians in return make sure Israel receive the lion share of US foreign aid (46%). Israel uses a small portion of the US aid to buy the politician next time. And this vicious circle has been running for decades.
Early this month, Petagon conducted a war simulation based on an alone Israeli attack on Iran. The results were very troubling. It showed that the war will trigger a very strong Iranian retaliation which could be disastrous for both Israel and Washington’s Arab allies.
