Israel and the “Iranian Threat”

Yesterday, Zionist prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu told a group of visiting US Senators that if relected his first priority would be to stop Iran acquiring a nuclear bomb by all means (Israel has between 240-400 nuclear bombs of its own). He thanked the group for their blind support for the Zionist entity. The Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) touted strong bipartisn support for the Zionist entity in the United States.

As everyone in Israel knows, there are a lot of things we disagree on in America – but our agenda in this part of the world is same as your agenda,” said McConnell.

Netanyahu also raised his concerns about Obama’s nomination of former Senator Chuck Hagel as next Secretary of Defense. Hagel’s problem with Jews is not that he hates Jews or Israel – but because he refuses to take orders from Israel or the AIPAC. Bret Stephens in the Israel hasbara media outlet Wall Street Journal called Hagel antisemite because Hagel used the term “Jewish Lobby” in a conversation with Aaron David Miller, the former Middle East negotiator who doesn’t hide either his Jewishness or his support for the Zionist entity. Hagel, though, has been against US invasion of Iraq but believes that Bush was driven by the “oil Lobby” and not by the Israel-Firsters in his administration. Hagel is for military budget cuts and believe a war with Iran would be against the national interests of the United States.

Making a statement such as “the Israel lobby controls US foreign policy” is not antisemitic. These sentiments have been articulated by many Jews in the past and have credible evidence to support them, including admissions by the chief Israel lobby in America, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). The former President of AIPAC, David Steiner, was actually caught on tape admitting as such. When AIPAC sends a letter demanding that Congressmen support a particular position, most immediately sign it. Almost every major US politician over the last 3 decades has attended the annual AIPAC conference on more than one occasion, and AIPAC’s own website even used to boast about how many pieces of legislation it was responsible for.

In US Congress, the anti-Iran crusade is headed by Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Foreign Affairs Committee Chairwoman. She has Cuban Jewish family roots. British veteran journalist and author, Alan Hart, called her Zionist lobby’s First Lady in US Congress. She was co-star of a so-called “documentary” entitled “La amenaza iraní” (The Iranian Threat), in which she said, without blushing, that the US should attack Iran in order to “avert bomb explosions in various Latin American capitals”. The Israeli propaganda crap was aired by US-based Univision TV, a Spanish language network owned by Israeli-American Jewish billionaire Haim Saban. “I’m a one-issue guy and my issue is Israel,” Saban told his interviewer in 2004. Haim Saban was born in Egypt. After the 1956 Suez War, his parents “moved to Tel Aviv where his family lived in a one-room apartment and shared a bathroom, with a hooker and a pimp,” quoted by the NYT, September 5, 2004.

In 2009, another ridiculous “documentary” released by Univision involved Venezuelan consul in Miami, Livia Acosta, in an absurd cyber-plot against the US allegedly promoted by “Iranian diplomats and Mexican computer hackers”. This was the pretext used for expelling her from the United States in a move that was widely seen as an American political revenge for Venezuela´s independent foreign policy.

The 120-nation-strong Non-Aligned Movement NAM) have been calling for a nuclear weapon-free zone (NWFZ) in the Middle East for years. Washington still formally agrees, but insists that Israel be exempted—and has given no hint of allowing such provisions to apply to itself. “The time is not yet ripe for creating the zone,” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stated at the NPT conference in 2010, while Washington insisted that no proposal can be accepted that calls for Israel’s nuclear program to be placed under the auspices of the IAEA or that calls on signers of the NPT, specifically Washington, to release information about “Israeli nuclear facilities and activities, including information pertaining to previous nuclear transfers to Israel.”

Claude Salhani, editor of the Middle East Times has different theory of the “Iranian Threat”. He wrote recently: “The real danger emanating from Iran today comes not from its control of the world’s busiest oil routes (Straits of Hormuz), not from a potential capability to deploy nuclear weapons, not from its support of groups (Hamas, Islamic Jihad and Hizballah) conducting acts of terrorism, but rather from Iran’s interests in the internet (cyber threat)”.  And you thought Netanyahu displaying Iran’s nuclear cartoon at the UN General Assembly, September 2012, is the only idiot!

Let me not forget the “Iranian Threat” coming from Iran’s Latin American allies. Last month, Obama signed a bill to control Iranian influence in Latin America. The Zionist lawmakers have been whining for years that Iran and Hizballah have missile bases in Cuba and Venezuela which they intend to use against the US and Israeli interests in the US.

In November 2010, American author and journalist Belen Fernandez in an article, titled Distorting Iranian-Latin American Relations, she wrote: ““Iranian ‘penetration’ in Latin America has in recent years become a pet issue of Israeli Foreign Ministry officials and American neoconservative pundits, many of whom take offense at the perceived failure of the US government to adequately appreciate the security threat posed by, for example, the inauguration of a weekly flight from Caracas to Tehran with a stop in Damascus“.

Some Israel-Firsters have even claimed Iran or other pro-Iranian forces of “establishing mosques or Islamic centers throughout the region” in order to advance violent jihad “on our doorstep”.

Latin American countries, especially those that follow an independent foreign policy, trust Iran because they know that the Iranians cannot be pressured into betraying an agreement that disturbs the US or its allies. This is a main reason of Iran´s rising popularity in Latin America despite the propaganda of Zionist-owned media outlets and the US political and diplomatic actions,” wrote Yusuf Fernandez, a journalist and secretary Muslim Federation of Spain.
