“Imam Khomeini made a distinction between Jews and Zionists and he suppoerted and protected the Jews,” Unees Hammami, leader of 25,000-strong Iranian Jewish community.
On October 26, 2012 – the Asia Time published a “guest article” by Aaron Hesse, entitled ‘The real problem with Iran is history’. Before I deal with the Hesse’s Israeli Hasbara lies – I would like to dig Aaron Hesse’s background. Aaron is a Jew from Nebraska who did his Master’s thesis on Iran’s nuclear program at American University in Cairo. He is a ‘policy analyst and research intern’ with the Washington-based pro-Israel think tank, American Security Project, founded by former US Senator Gary Hart, a Zionist christian, in 2007. The ASP board of directors include Jews like Lt. Gen. (R) Daniel Christman, former Sen. Warren B. Rudman and Sen. John Kerry, whose both grandparents were Jewish.
Aaron, as a cunning Zionist propagandist, begins his article by giving the false impression that it’s the United states which has problem with Iran’s nuclear program and Israel is just an innocent bystander. Then he ask the ‘one million dollar question’.
“Why does Iran want or need a nuclear program in the first place? Is it to threaten the US or its allies, to end Western influence in the Middle East, to support terrorist activities, or to project Iranian power and export the revolution? Or is it much deeper than that?,” asks Aaron.
One doesn’t need a PhD in political science to answer Aaron’s question. In fact, Iran has more reasons to acquire nukes as deterrent than Israel which has military defense pacts with world’s nuclear powers like the US, Britain and France. Islamic Iran is surrounded by five nuclear powers (Russia, China, Pakistan, India and Iran) and 15 American military bases.
Iran doesn’t need nukes to end US-Israel influence in the region which is on fast decline even though both the US and Israel have a nuclear stockpile of 10,000 nuclear bombs and each has far higher military budget; the US ($680 billion) and Israel ($17.3 billion) than Iran’s $5.6 billion per year.
Iranian president Ahmadinejad has said on several occasions that Iran doesn’t need nuclear bombs to defend itself as nuclear bombs did not save the US, USSR and Israel from military huliations in Iraq, Afghanistan and Lebanon. Iran has also held two International Conferences to create a nuclear-free Middle East.
Iranian and the 350 million Arabs in the region have no problem with the Americans or the western culture. They hate the US and western governments for their blind support for the illegal Jewish occupation of Arab Palestine.
Iran has a 150 year history of not attacking or terrorizing its neighboring countries. Contrary to that, the Zionist entity has invaded all its neighbors during the 64 year of its existence. Iran has not sponsored a single terrorist attack inside Israel while Israel has been arming and training anti-Iran terrorist groups like MEK and Jundallah. Mossad, along with CIA and MI6 played major role behind the 2009 protests against Ahmadinejad’s re-election. According to late Israeli historian, professor Israel Shahak, the Zionist entity has been planning to bring a pro-Israel regime change in Tehran since 1980s. During the eight-year Iraqi invasion of Iran in 1980s, US-Israel provided biological weapons to Saddam Hussein.
Iran began its nuclear program under the deposed King Reza Shah with the help of the US, France, Britain and Israel – because it made economic sense, and it still does. However, after the success of the Islamic Revolution in 1979 – the leader of the Revolution, Imam Khomeini ordered to shutdown the program calling it “un-Islamic”.
Then Aaron praises pre-Islamic Persian history by glorifying pagan kings like Cyrus the Great. Aaron’s praises Cyrus not for being good to his Persian subjects – but because he allowed Jews to return to Jerusalem in 536 BC. He also allowed Jews to rebuild the Temple of Solomon which was completed during Persian King Darius in 517 BC. The Temple was later destroyed by Roman in 70CE under Titus. The site was turned into city garbage dump for the next 600 years.
However, Aaron don’t remember that the Jewish Holy garbage dump was restored to Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem in 638 CE by Arab Muslim soldiers after cleaning the site with their own hands. For this unexpected gesture, the Chief Rabbi declared the Caliph Umar bin Khattab, the Promised Jewish Messiah. After sixty years, the Jewish community sold the site to Ummayyad Sultan who built Al-Aqsa Mosque at the site. Interestingly, in the 1970s, Professor Benjamin Mazar, former President of Hebrew University claimed that King Darius built the Temple of Mount on top of the little rock ridge at the western bank of the Kidron Valley and not on top of the Wailing Wall.
Aaron also blamed Christian Byzantines to make Iran so weak that it became very easy for Muslim Arabs to conquer Persia. However, Aaron intentionally skipped the history pages when the small Jewish community, like currently in the United States, became so powerful under the Persian King Ahasuerus, who took a Jewish woman by the name Esther as his Queen. She with the help of her uncle Mordechai, murdered 75,000 non-Jewish Persians over 2000 years ago. The Persian Holocaust is celebrated as a joyful ‘Purim’ by Jews each year around the world. Read the story from Jewish Book of Esther, here.
“As signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Iran has responsibilities that it is not living up to, and needs to be held accountable,” claims Aaron. Even if some idiot believe him, would he has the right to ask Aaron that since Israel refuses to sign the NPT – who is taking the Zionist entity “accountable”?
