“Peacenik” former Israeli Prime Minister says “Bomb Iran Now”

Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak went on CNBC on Wednesday and said that the U.S. should deliver Iran an ultimatum it could never accept and then unleash a bombing blitzkreig. The ultimatum, that Iran should dismantle its entire nuclear program, would simply be a formality to provide cover for naked aggression.

White House Petition - Cease all United States foreign aid to nuclear armed Israel as sanctioned by United States law

With the declassification by the United States government of the report entitled “Critical Technological Assessment in Israel and NATO Nations” which gives a detailed description of how Israel developed its nuclear infrastructure, the U.S. now openly admits that Israel possesses nuclear weapons. Israel is not a signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty and refuses to comply with the International Atomic Energy Agency regulations and inspections of Israeli nuclear facilities, we the people of the United States demand that the U.S. abide by the Symington Amendment and the Glenn Amendment (Section 102 of the Arms Export Control Act) which prohibits the U.S. government from providing taxpayer treasuries to nuclear armed non signatories. Cease all US foreign aid until Israel abides by the NPT.

The DONMEH part 2: House of Saud Connections

An Iraqi Mukhabarat (General Military Intelligence Directorate) Top Secret report, “The Emergence of Wahhabism and its Historical Roots,” dated September 2002 and released on March 13, 2008, by the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency in translated English form, points to the Dönmeh roots of the founder of the Saudi Wahhabi sect of Islam, Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab.

The Dönmeh: The Middle East’s Most Whispered Secret (Part I)

Israel has always been reluctant to describe the Turkish massacre of the Armenians by the Turks in 1915 as “genocide.” It has always been believed that the reason for Israel’s reticence was not to upset Israel’s close military and diplomatic ties with Turkey. However, more evidence is being uncovered that the Armenian genocide was largely the work of the Dönmeh leadership of the Young Turks. Historians like Ahmed Refik, who served as an intelligence officer in the Ottoman army, averred that it was the aim of the Young Turks to destroy the Armenians, who were mostly Christian. The Young Turks, under Ataturk’s direction, also expelled Greek Christians from Turkish cities and attempted to commit a smaller-scale genocide of the Assyrians, who were also mainly Christian.

Israeli seizure of Palestinian tax revenues is “collective punishment”

A new report by a Palestinian human rights group has slammed Israel’s practice of withholding tax revenues from the Palestinian Authority.

As part of agreements signed under the Oslo accords, Israel collects taxes from Palestinians in the West Bank and is supposed to then transfer the monies to the PA.

But in December, when the PA announced it would join the International Criminal Court, Israel began withholding the revenues as a punishment. At the end of March, it agreed to resume transfers, and send back the monies it had accumulated.

But on Sunday, the PA announced it was paying it back to Israel, because they had not been given the full amount. Israel reportedly deducted one-third of the amount to pay off alleged PA debts to Israeli utility corporations.

BBC hands airwaves over to Israel’s minister for war

Writing on the current affairs website, Al Araby, Sabbagh asked: “British journalists are among the best and most skeptical in the world. Why then, with a few honorable exceptions, do they fail to be skeptical when comes to Israel?”

The question was especially pertinent in light of an egregious interview conducted by senior BBC presenter, Sarah Montague, just two weeks earlier, with Israel’s “defense” minister Moshe Yaalon.

Ex-Israeli PM to US: Give Iran 'or else' ultimatum

Barak said he would rather see a peacefully negotiated end to Iran's nuclear threat.

But since the announcement last week of a framework of a deal between Iran and the U.S. and its negotiating partners—Russia, China, France, the U.K. and Germany—there have been conflicting accounts of the extent of the agreement and what it means for the chances of reaching a final accord by the end of June.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We are getting into a real Kafka situation here. Iran doesn't have a nuclear weapons program. Nobody has found any evidence to suggest that they do (although with the US and Israel attacking anyone who doesn't have a nuclear deterrent one could hardly fault Iran for wanting one).

Israel has been screaming that Iran is within weeks of having a nuclear weapon since the 1980s and it hasn't happened yet.

Meanwhile a recently declassified US document confirms that the US Government has known that Israel has had nuclear weapons since the 1970s, numbering in the hundreds, including Hydrogen bombs the US helped Israel develop. Israel (which has not signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and does not allow IAEA inspections) has so many nuclear weapons that they offered to sell one to the former government of South Africa; the very activity the NNPT is intended to prevent.

Maybe Israel is simply projecting their own guilt onto others, sort of a "It's okay for us to do it because everyone is doing it" attitude. Maybe after forty years they believe their own propaganda. Or maybe, as Netanyahu recently revealed, Israel knows Iran doesn't have a nuclear weapons program, but the goal is to destroy Iran as a regional political and economic rival to Israel, with US kids in uniform doing the dirty work (as happened in Iraq).

But as nuclear-armed Israel hysterically shrieks about how much danger they face from non-nuclear Iran, keep one thing in mind. Iran has not invaded another nation in a war of aggression in over 200 years; a track record of peace standing in stark contrast to Israel and the US, which these days cannot seem to go six months without invading, drone-striking, or overthrowing other nations.

Israeli investigative journalist says the Paris Charlie Hebdo terror attack likely a false flag by Israel

Though a right-wing, pro-Zionist Israeli, Barry Chamish is known for his fearless exposés of corruption at the top of Israel’s power hierarchy. When someone like Chamish, who hates Netanayahu’s Labor Zionist opponents with a passion, nonetheless singles out Bibi as a suspect in the Charlie Hebdo psy-op, it would seem that January’s false flag in Paris has backfired.

Below is a transcript from yesterday’s Barry Chamish – Kevin Barrett interview. (Chamish’s words are in boldface.) Extracts from the first interview pointing the finger at Netanyahu have been published in We Are NOT Charlie Hebdo! Free Thinkers Question the French 9/11.

“Greater Israel”: The Zionist Plan for the Middle East

According to the founding father of Zionism Theodore Herzl, “the area of the Jewish State stretches: “From the Brook of Egypt to the Euphrates.” According to Rabbi Fischmann, “The Promised Land extends from the River of Egypt up to the Euphrates, it includes parts of Syria and Lebanon.”

When viewed in the current context, the war on Iraq, the 2006 war on Lebanon, the 2011 war on Libya, the ongoing war on Syria, not to mention the process of regime change in Egypt, must be understood in relation to the Zionist Plan for the Middle East. The latter consists in weakening and eventually fracturing neighboring Arab states as part of an Israeli expansionist project.

“Greater Israel” consists in an area extending from the Nile Valley to the Euphrates.

Perpetual war is the only valid explanation

Daily Pickings previously referenced Israel's Yinon plan for creating division and conflict across the Middle East to ensure Israel's supremacy. Israeli citizens, holding dual (Israel/US) nationality, are driving policy in Washington and the Pentagon.

The Pentagon Plan to ‘Divide and Rule’ the Muslim World by Nafeez Ahmed
Yemen is the latest casualty of a neoconservative strategy commissioned by the US Army to ‘capitalise on Sunni-Shia conflict’ in the Middle East - the goal is nothing short of ‘Western dominance’

The war on Yemen appears to have been choreographed, by encouraging the Houthis to oust the former regime, with the express intention of creating conflict. It is a pattern which repeats time and time again, most recently with the creation and support of Islamic State (IS, ISIL, ISIS) by Israel, US and their allies including Saudi Arabia. The outcome will, yet again, be chaos and mayhem.

Israel to push Congress to pass bill to hamper Iran deal

“Israel will try to persuade congressmen and senators to introduce a clause stipulating that the deal with Iran should be seen as an international treaty requiring Senate ratification and not an agreement.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Attention America: Gaze on the Congress, which is supposed to represent the American people in the operation of the US Government, but which has allowed this nation to rot in their devotion to a foreign power and now openly violates the Logan Act as they carry out their true master's command to undermine the Office of the Presidency. All voters should remember this sordid spectacle next year during the elections. Senator Tom Cotton demands the President act to protect the United States. I concur. The President should arrest all of Israel's supporters who have subverted this nation to the will of Israel and toss them in prison, in accordance with the provisions of the Logan Act.

Guest Column: Boycott SodaStream for peace

A year-and-a-half ago, several residents of Cambridge, Somerville and the surrounding area began conversations with the management of TAGS Hardware in Porter Square in order to share information with the retailer about the growing international boycott of SodaStream products.

SodaStream, which manufactures home carbonation systems for sparkling beverages, has built its factory in the Jewish-only Israeli settlement Ma’aleh Adumim in the occupied West Bank, where more than 40,000 Israeli settlers live on land expropriated from several Palestinian farming villages and from Bedouin communities. The settlement, which is off-limits to Palestinians unless they obtain permits, effectively blocks Palestinians in much of the West Bank from access to Jerusalem. And, like the 120 other Israeli settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, it is deemed illegal under international law.

The Zionist Lobby and a Cowed Academia - When Free Speech Becomes Dead Silence

The sudden cancellation of an academic conference on Israel, as well as the lack of outcry from 'mainstream' media, demonstrates once again the skewed limits to 'free speech' in 'advanced' Western democracies.

Iran news report: Tehran will start using fastest centrifuges on day deal takes effect

Iran will begin using its latest generation IR-8 centrifuges as soon as its nuclear deal with the world powers goes into effect, Iran’s foreign minister and nuclear chief told members of parliament on Tuesday, according to Iran’s semi-official FARS news agency.

If accurate, the report appears to make a mockery of the world powers’ much-hailed framework agreement with Iran, since such a move clearly breaches the US-published terms of the deal, and would dramatically accelerate Iran’s potential progress to the bomb.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Except that, as Iran has already pointed out, the US version of the framework deal does not accurately reflect the actual agreement.

Letter to a Court Historian about Forrestal’s Death

H.L. Mencken aptly called them “the timorous eunuchs who posture as American historians.” That was in 1920, but little has changed. It might be a freshly minted Ph.D. from TCU, teaching at a backwater university in Texas like Matthew A. McNiece, or the man often described as the foremost historian of the Cold War, Yale history professor John Lewis Gaddis, but the fake authoritativeness and the real pusillanimity are at least as evident today as they were in Mencken’s day. That is certainly the case when it comes to their writing about the very important subject of the violent death of the U.S. government’s leading opponent of the creation of the state of Israel, Secretary of Defense James Forrestal.

In yet another attempt to show the world that he has the intelligence of a human being, Shmuley Boteach adds his voice to the controversy surrounding Jon Stewart’s replacement, Trevor Noah. As usual, he’s way off base. Good thing he doesn’t play baseball ;)

The Daily Show sets the standard for Comedy Channel, and Stewart set that bar high. I wish Trevor well, but I wish even more that he do a crash course in Middle East facts and get up to speed so that he treats this most volatile of subjects with the erudition it deserves.

Is he talking about himself in the last sentence? HE is the one that needs the crash course in Middle East facts!

AIPAC: The Israeli Lobby

The United States supports Israel in a variety of ways. We give them all sorts of military and economic support, roughly 3 billion dollars a year. Israel, despite the fact it is a relatively rich country, receives more foreign aid than any other other country in the world. We veto resolutions in the United Nations all the time that are critical to Israel. Is one allowed to question that reality, or is the pro-Israel lobby so strong, financially and politically, that the relationship with Israel is taboo and therefore unmentionable? And what happens to those who dare expose the unmentionable?

Israel expects hundreds of civilian casualties in next war with Hezbollah

Israel could suffer hundreds of civilian dead and damage to its vital infrastructure from Hezbollah rockets if it fights another war with the Iranian-backed Lebanese guerrilla group, according to Israeli military assessments.

The scenario, published by Israeli media on Wednesday, reflected concern among security planners that since the last Lebanon war, in 2006, Hezbollah has expanded its rocket arsenal and gained battle experience helping Damascus fight the insurgency in Syria.

AIPAC's "No One Wants War" in Iran Claim Debunked

The problem with saying “no one wants war” is of course that some people do want war. These include some congressional critics, some Israeli officials, some in the pro-Israel movement and some of Iran’s Sunni Arab neighbors. None acts as a monolith, but their beautiful diversity definitely includes some warmongers.

AIPAC, moreover, surely knows this. Sheldon Adelson, a sometime AIPAC funder and partner who remains a major force in the “pro-Israel movement” has for example called for nuking Iran. The group’s stable of regular speakers at fundraisers and events includes several figures who have, indeed, called for war with Iran. Just consider a January AIPAC fundraiser in New York, headlined by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and former Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I/D-CT)-both of whom have at some point called for military strikes. As Lieberman once boasted, there is a “broad bipartisan base of support” for such an attack.

Israel could send Iran ‘back to the stone age’ with electromagnetic bomb

Israel could destroy Iran’s electric network with a specially designed electromagnetic bomb in the event of a military conflict between the countries, The Sunday Times reported on Sunday.

An electromagnetic bomb of this sort would be detonated above the ground, creating an electromagnetic pulse that would “disrupt all the technological devices working on the ground,” an American expert was quoted as saying to the London paper.

The use of the new technology by Israel was brought up in discussions regarding a possible attack on Tehran’s nuclear facilities, the report claimed. Such a move would send Iran “back to the stone age,” the British paper said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think this story of an electromagnetic bomb is a cover for the use of nuclear weapons by Israel against Iran. Unlike any other bomb, which destroys itself as it destroys the target, a theoretical electromagnetic bomb has to maintain its physical integrity during use. Electricity in wire travels at .2 times the speed of light. Any break in the wiring of the coils producing the magnetic field will instantly collapse that field. This limits how much power that can go into such an electromagnetic bomb as it must be able to withstand the magnetic field it produces. In the case of an EMP produced by a nuclear weapon above the atmosphere, loss of the initiating device is not an issue as the EMP is produced not by the bomb itself but by a sudden displacement of the Earth's own magnetic field.

Should Israeli nuclear bombs be inspected?

Israel is a nuclear power was the conclusion of a Department of Defense report prepared in 1987 and kept secret until its release this past March. It was brought to light through a Freedom of Information lawsuit by Grant Smith, an investigative reporter and author affiliated with the Institute for Research: Middle East Policy, who forced the release of the report, which confirms the existence of Israel's nuclear program. The actual report was prepared by the Institute for Defense Analysis, a Pentagon-funded research unit, and provides U.S.-based evidence to the advanced nature of Israel's nuclear program. According to Smith, this is the first time the U.S. government has ever provided official documentation that recognizes long-standing knowledge of the existence and extent of such a program.

Top Democrat backs bill okaying Congress to sink Iran deal

Defying White House, Senator Chuck Schumer endorses legislation intended to enable lawmakers to kill nuclear accord with Tehran

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is time to arrest Schumer and every other member of Congress acting on Israel's desire to kill the Iran deal for violating the Logan Act. The reason for foreign policy to be handled by the State Department and the White House is to provide a reliable single point of contact for foreign governments, in order to avoid the very situation we are in now, with foreign leaders unable to determ,ine what is or is not official US policy.

The real reason Netanyahu and the GOP hate this Iran deal

1) The nuclear architecture Iran gets to keep is way too big.
2) Sanctions relief will enable Iranian aggression.
3) The deal isn't strict enough in key areas.
4) Inspections won't be as strong as you think.

The thing about some of these arguments is that they are basically objections to any feasible deal with Iran. Many critics, particularly Netanyahu, have taken pains to deny that they oppose any deal altogether — but it seems quite clearly that they do.

The Republican chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said Sunday he’s within a few votes of being able to override a threatened presidential veto of his bill giving Congress a say in any nuclear deal with Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congress can declare or refuse to declare a war. Short of that, the Constitution states that foreign policy is exclusively the jurisdiction of the White House and the US Department of State. Every member of Congress championing Israel's agenda against Iran is in violation of the Logan Act.

Israel recognition not part of Iran deal: Obama

US President Barack Obama says recognition of Israel cannot be a part of the nuclear agreement with Iran.

The Israeli regime has outspokenly voiced opposition since talks began between Tehran and the P5+1 –the US, Britain, Russia, China, France, and Germany -- in an effort to reach a comprehensive accord on Iran’s nuclear program.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said earlier that recognition of the regime by Iran must a part of the deal.

Remember: when confused, when all other analysis seems to fail to make sense, come back to The Map, the PNAC Project for a New "American" Century. The duplicitous and misleading title of the project establishing Israel's (City of London's) empire that used American post 9/11 (inside job) concocted anti-Muslim enmity, its resources, its military, economic, and political might that will become the dominant political power of the planet long after the United States has been destroyed and left held responsible for the horrors visited on the world via the so-called "war on terror".

Crisis in Palestinian Camp in Syria Has Worsened Since ISIS Invasion, U.N. Says

Relief officials at the United Nations expressed alarm on Monday about a deepening humanitarian disaster in Syria’s Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp, which was invaded last week by Islamic State militants and their allies.

Roughly 18,000 people, including 3,500 children, have been trapped by fighting in Yarmouk, which is on the southern outskirts of the capital, Damascus, and is less than 10 miles from the presidential palace.

Pierre Krähenbühl, commissioner general of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, which administers aid to Palestinian refugees in the Middle East, said the residents were slowly starving.

Israel Plans Two-Pronged Attack To Thwart Iran Deal

Israel will adopt two lines of attack as it tries to thwart – or at least modify – the international nuclear agreement with Iran in the coming weeks, a senior official said.

Firstly, it will lobby the U.S. Congress to pass legislation that would make it difficult, or even impossible, to approve a comprehensive deal with Iran if one is reached by the June 30 deadline.

At the same time, it will continue pressing the White House for the “improvements” Israel says must be made in the terms of the agreement, the official said.

Since the Islamic Revolution in Iran, which overthrew the dictatorship of US-backed Shah in 1979, a constant in US foreign policy has been an unrelenting hostility to Iran. Washington supported Iraq’s former dictator Saddam Hussein´s war against Iran (1980-1988). In 2003, the Bush administration prepared plans for war with Iran. Since 2011, the US and its European Union allies have subjected Iran to the toughest economic sanctions regime in history.

Netanyahu Reiterates: I’m Trying to Kill Iran Deal

Taking to the major American networks today Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continued railing against the Iran nuclear framework deal, and reiterated his determination to try to kill it.

Netanyahu has repeatedly talked up sabotaging the nuclear negotiations on Israeli media, but this was the first time he was so overt about leading the anti-diplomacy push on US media.

He tried to prevent the push against the current deal as a push for a “better deal,” though that hypothetical deal that Netanyahu might accept is so far-fetched US officials say it wasn’t even worth bringing up at the talks to the other Western nations, let alone Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Bibi Netanyahu: sir, as the Prime Minister of a nation which has had nuclear weapons for 40 years, as we now understand from the US government's declassification of documents proving the US assisted you in developing those weapons, how do you have the hubristic effrontery to rail against a country which is working with the world to create a framework through which to manage their nuclear energy program?

Iran is a signatory to the NNPT: and Israel, which has developed nuclear weapons, refuses to sign it, or allow its weapons sites to be inspected. Additionally, Israel is not a party to the P 5+1 deal at all.

Right now, the one country which needs to re-assess its position on this deal is Israel, period, end of discussion.

And I would like to suggest that Rivero's Rangers quietly and calmly, and politely contact their Congressional Representatives to say that any attempt to veto this agreements) will demonstrate that they are a representative of a foreign power, and are not addressing the needs and concerns of We the People.

Let them know that you know this is precisely what AIPAC expects, and if that is what they intend to do, their next political campaign will be a complete exercise in futility.

As the proposed agreement over Iran’s nuclear program is debated in coming weeks, President Obama will make his case to a Congress controlled by Republicans who are more fervently pro-Israel than ever, partly a result of ideology, but also a product of a surge in donations and campaign spending on their behalf by a small group of wealthy donors.

Israel Prepares Lobbying Strategy Against Iran Deal

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's appearances on multiple American TV news programs on Sunday signaled the launch of what is expected to be a furious lobbying effort to scuttle or reshape a deal that he has criticized as "bad" and a threat to Israel's very existence. A document drawn up by experts in Netanyahu's office, obtained by The Associated Press, gives a glimpse of the arguments the Israeli leader is going to raise, targeting vague language in the system of inspections and its failure to address issues beyond the nuclear program.

Israel's Crimes Against Humanity: When Occupation Becomes Apartheid

Israel’s military occupation and control of the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza has gone on almost half a century, since it conquered those territories during the 1967 Six Day War. While many fear Israel will become an apartheid state unless it relinquishes all or most of these occupied territories, the evidence is overwhelming that Israel created an apartheid system and became an apartheid state at the end of the 1967 war, 48 years ago.

Benjamin Netanyahu vows to continue quest to derail Iran nuclear deal

Benjamin Netanyahu has vowed to continue his campaign to derail the nuclear deal with Iran even as several leading Republicans suggested they were prepared to give the White House some breathing room to reach a final agreement.

While debate continued in the US, Mohammad Zarif, Iran’s foreign minister, said his country “will be able to return” to its nuclear activities if the West does not honour its agreement to lift sanctions.

The Israeli prime minister has been a vociferous opponent of the talks with Tehran and urged the US Congress to step in and prevent President Barack Obama from making a deal that “endangers our survival”.

Apr 06 07:56

Who’s Playing “Hide and Cheat”?

Not surprisingly, the painfully negotiated pact was denounced by Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, who has repeatedly, and illegally, threatened Iran over its alleged desire to build an atomic bomb. But Obama’s rebuff of Netanyahu’s position was well deserved, given Israel’s record of stealing American military secrets and spying on private American talks with its allies.

If Iran had been guilty of such crimes, the American public would now be deaf from the outcry of the Republicans in Congress. Americans need to remember that Jonathan Jay Pollard, an American civilian naval intelligence analyst, pleaded guilty in 1987 to selling classified information to Israel. At least 800 documents were snitched. Pollard, who became an Israeli citizen, sits in a U.S. prison today in Butner, N.C., serving a life sentence. Former Defense Secretary Casper Weinberger said his espionage “would cause the greatest harm to our national security.”

"There's nothing for Iranians to do but go at breakneck speed to a nuclear weapon," Kirk said.

"We're moving straight to forcing Israel to clean up this mess … when the West does nothing, Israel over and over has done something."

The U.S., Kirk added, "shouldn't force our best ally in the region to clean up the mess."

Netanyahu in US media blitz against Iran deal

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu launched a frontal propaganda attack on US President Barack Obama yesterday on the major US television networks, in an effort to counter the White House's aggressive sales campaign on behalf of the framework agreement on Iran's nuclear program reached last week, aimed at legislators on Capitol Hill and at the US public at large.

Obama and his aides have been using the Easter weekend to speak to senators and representatives from both the Democratic and Republican parties in an attempt to persuade them that the proposed agreement with Iran is the most effective way of blocking Iran's path to a nuclear weapon. For Netanyahu, the most important target audience is Democratic legislators torn between their loyalty to Obama and their traditional support for Israel. In the end, it is the Democratic legislators who will decide whether the Senate will be able to override a presidential veto on legislation designed to overturn the deal with Iran.

Israel destroys home of blind brothers in East Jerusalem

More than one hundred Israeli soldiers turned up at Nureddin Amro’s home at 5:30 in the morning last Tuesday, accompanied by bulldozers and dogs. It quickly became clear that the soldiers had one item on their agenda: demolition.

Nureddin tried to reason with the soldiers, only to be told “you cannot negotiate with us,” he said.

“We tried to oppose it [the demolition], but they pushed all of us inside the house and started to hit the kids and the women,” he added. “They started to beat us and to point their weapons at us.”

Twelve people lived in the Amro house in the Wadi al-Joz neighborhood of occupied East Jerusalem.

They included Nureddin and his brother, Sharif, both of whom are blind, their wives and seven children, all under fourteen years old. When the family did not immediately leave the house, a soldier threatened them and said he would demolish the house while they were still inside, Nureddin said.

It’s a good one – but can it survive the US Congress?

As I said in my last column, the US Congress is the catch, the fly in the ointment that could nix this deal and lead us down the path to another war in the Middle East. Nothing has been signed. What we have is a framework, one that will lead to a fuller agreement in June – if Congress doesn’t step in and stop it.

Good News and Bad News


For Israel, there's good news and bad news after Iran deal

Although Iran's nuclear project will be monitored for at least a decade, the deal also grants it recognition as a power to be reckoned with.

HAARETZ: The framework agreement crafted Thursday in Lausanne between Iran and the world powers is a historic step. After nearly 13 years of on-and-off negotiations, a deal aims to stop the progress of Iran’s nuclear program for an extended period.
***
From an Israeli perspective, the relatively good news is that Iran’s nuclear project will be monitored for at least a decade. For now, it seems that during this time Iran’s chances of developing a nuclear weapon will decline significantly.
***
The bad news is not only that Iran’s economy, which has taken a double-barreled blow from both sanctions and declining oil prices, is expected to recover quickly, but that Iran has also achieved recognition from the world powers for two elements it greatly needs. The powers now acknowledge, indirectly, that Iran is a nuclear threshold state, and no less importantly, they accept Iran as a force to be reckoned with throughout the Middle East.

Palestinians clash with Daesh in Yarmouk Camp

Intense clashes continue between Palestinian armed factions and Daesh, who took over most of the Palestinian refugee camp of Yarmouk near the Syrian capital, Damascus.

Daesh militants stormed the camp on April 1, apparently in tandem with rivals from the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front, even though the two groups have fought bloody battles against each other in other parts of Syria.

The terrorists attacked Yarmouk, home to Palestinian refugees since 1957 and located on the edge of the Syrian capital, in an attempt to kill a reconciliation deal between Palestinian armed factions inside the camp and more moderate groups seeking to keep the site away from the crisis in Syria.

Arab-Israeli Wars and Conflicts (1948-Present)

This page shows conflicts between the Arab nations (as a group), and Israel. As a rule, a legal state of war has existed between Israel and her Arab enemies since the beginning of the first war in 1948. Egypt signed a peace treaty with Israel in 1979, and Jordan made peace in 1994. The Palestine Authority, headed by Yassir Arafat and his Al-Fatah faction of the Palestine Liberation Organization negotiated a semi-peace, which, from mid-2000 on, has been destroyed through the “Al-Aqsa” Intifada violence. Other Palestinian groups, most notably Hamas, have been at war with Israel continuously. Although Israel and most Arab nations are technically in a continuous state of war, unless otherwise noted, specific outbreaks of fighting are considered to be separate wars.

According to foreign experts, Israel has several hundred nuclear bombs (assessments vary between 80-400. If Iran sends its bombs and obliterates most of Israel (myself included), Israeli submarines will obliterate Iran. Whatever I might think about Binyamin Netanyahu, I rely on him and our security chiefs to keep our “second strike” capability intact. Just last week we were informed that Germany had delivered another state-of-the-art submarine to our navy for this purpose.

Israeli idiots – and there are some around – respond: “Yes, but the Iranian leaders are not normal people. They are madmen. Religious fanatics. They will risk the total destruction of Iran just to destroy the Zionist state. Like exchanging queens in chess.”

Such convictions are the outcome of decades of demonizing. Iranians – or at least their leaders – are seen as subhuman miscreants.

Israeli Officials ‘Furious’ Over Iran Nuclear Deal

It’s unsurprising given the decades of hostility they’ve shown toward diplomacy in general, but Israeli officials are reacting with outrage at the announcement of a framework deal between Iran and the international community.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has promised to do everything in his power to prevent an agreement, says that the framework “threatens Israel’s survival” by allowing Iran to keep portions of its civilian nuclear program.

Netanyahu and other officials are insisting the deal guarantees Iran will acquire nuclear weapons within the next year, though of course they have been predicting Iran would do so virtually non-stop since the Iranian revolution.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question is not what Israeli officials are "feeling", but what they are actually prepared to do to keep this deal from having a chance to survive.

We have about 90 days until the final form of the agreement is supposed to take its final shape; I have to wonder if Netanyahu is actually prepared to mount a military campaign to destroy Iran's reactors; he is just hubristic enough to believe that there will be no consequences, should he make that decision.

Or, will he try something covert, as Israel did with the USS Liberty?!? Will he order some kind of attack on an American ship, and claim it was Iran who was the culprit?!? (But seriously, folks, why in tarnation would the Iranian government and military DO something like that right now, in light of the fact that a preliminary framework for their nuclear energy program has been reached?!?

But should he do this, it would rope the US military into having to support a war against Iran.

Should that happen, Hezbollah will attack Israel from the North; Iran will counter attack, and well.... the big question at that point will be, what will Russia do?!?

I would like to remind Netanyahu that Iran and and Russia have signed a mutual military accord earlier this year; so a war against Iran will most probably be construed as a war against Russia.

I would also like to remind Netanyahu that Iran contains a population of one of the oldest-practicing Jewish communities in the world; any attack on Iran would mean that many of his Jewish brothers and sisters may well get killed in such an attack.

Following the nuclear deal reached in Switzerland, The New York Times editorial board said the “preliminary agreement between Iran and the major powers is a significant achievement that makes it more likely Iran will never be a nuclear threat.”

Dome of the Rock erased from kindergarten's Haggadah

Al-Aqsa Mosque replaced with trees in picture of Jerusalem's Western Wall in Kiryat Tivon nursery school's Passover booklet. 'This is not the kind of education I would like my children to receive,' says shocked father.

A Passover Hagaddah handed out to children in a municipal kindergarten in the northern town of Kiryat Tivon includes a picture of the Western Wall without the Dome of the Rock behind it.

Ofir Spiegler ran across the picture when his daughter brought the Hagaddah home before the Passover vacation. He discovered that the page which says "Next year in a rebuilt Jerusalem" includes a picture of the Western Wall with the Temple Mount and trees behind it. The Dome of the Rock, a Muslim mosque famous for its large golden dome, is nowhere to be seen.

Islamic Jew-hatred’ ads with Hitler appear on Philly buses

I wonder if I should tell you about the Zionist/NaZi connections? That they were (are) one and the same? That the "Jewish Holocaust" was really the "Shnorrer Holocaust" (poor Jewish Holocaust): those Jews who were refuseniks against the Zionist cult?

That same occult underpinnings of Zionism, NaZism are the same for Islamofascism, the Muslim Brotherhood (now al Qaeda and ISIS), based in the Cairo Lodge, saved by Allen Dulles and the CIA, removed to Saudi Arabia, after Nasser tried to suppress this heretical Islamic movement?

That Saudi Arabia and Israel are the evil step-brothers in the Rothschild plan to use Israel as the center-piece for the Satanic New World Order centered on the rebuilt Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem atop what is now the Al-Aqsa Mosque?

These refugees out of the current nearly 12 million Palestinians whose country was illegally occupied in 1948 and each of whom possess, under international law the Full Right of Return to their country.

Netanyahu: Any final Iran deal must include recognition of Israel’s right to exist

PM says Israel would not accept agreement that gives country that vows to annihilate Israel a nuclear bomb.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Netanyahu's arrogance is showing. First, Iran (and the other nations in the region) have made it abundantly clear they will recognize Israel's right to exist ... one second after Israel recognizes Palestine's right to exist. But as long as Israel maintains a policy of "We have a right to exist but you do not", the situation will deteriorate. Second, Israel is not a party to the P5+1 negotiations, so what Israel rejects has no real meaning, especially since Netanyahu's grandstanding speech to Congress has lost Israel the presumed US veto in all thing United Nations.

BEX ALERT ~~ FALSE FLAG ‘KIDNAPPING’ IN WEST BANK

After Israeli security forces searched the Hebron area for him for 10 hours, 22-year-old Niv Asraf from Be’er Sheva, who was feared kidnapped, was found alive in Kiryat Arba on Friday overnight. IDF Spokesman Moti Almoz said Asraf’s soldier friend fabricated the kidnapping.

Asraf was found in a wadi in Kiryat Arba with canned food and a sleeping bag, a Judea and Samaria Police spokesman said.

“The ‘missing man’ and his friends staged a kidnapping. We’ll investigate the reasons behind this and will handle this to the full extent of the law,” the spokesman said.

Benjamin Netanyahu: Israel Cabinet strongly opposes Iran nuclear deal

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he and his Cabinet are united in “strongly opposing” an emerging framework agreement on curbing Iran’s nuclear program and demanded that any final deal contain Iranian recognition of Israel’s right to exist.

Iran and six world powers announced a series of understandings Thursday, with a final agreement to be reached by June 30. A final deal is meant to cut significantly into Iran’s bomb-capable technology while giving Tehran quick access to assets and markets blocked by international sanctions.

Netanyahu has harshly criticized the negotiations, demanding instead that the Iranian program be dismantled. He claims Iran cannot be trusted, and that leaving certain facilities intact would allow the Iranians to eventually build a bomb. Iran denies it has nuclear weapons ambitions and says its program is intended for peaceful purposes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Iran cannot be trusted? This from the leader of the nation which has for forty years kept its nuclear arsenal hidden?

Iranian president: World powers accept Tehran's right to enrich uranium

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has said Iran will keep its promises if the other side does, referring to Thursday’s preliminary nuclear agreement.

“The world has acknowledged Iran is pursuing its peaceful objectives,” he said during a press conference on Friday.

Rouhani said Tehran’s nuclear enrichment issue “is not a threat” to any other nation, and if the other sides keep their promises under the deal Iran will too.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US broke its promises under the P5+1 Preliminary Agreement, and the US is in violation of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty which both Iran and the US (but not Israel) have signed and ratified. Under Article 4, the US is obligated to assist Iran in the building of peaceful nuclear facilities, and if the US was really worried about a secret nuclear bomb factory underneath Iran's power station (like the one under Israels reactor at Dimona, stepping in to help pour the foundations and run the wiring for Iran's nuclear power station is a great way to ensure that it is just a power station. In ignoring their obligations to Iran under the NNPT and using the threat of military force to coerce Iran into surrendering their rights to peaceful nuclear technology under the NNPT, it is the United States which is ignoring its obligations under international law!

BEX Alert - "Iran deal threatens ‘survival of Israel’, increases risk of ‘horrific war’ – Netanyahu"

A nuclear deal with Iran based on current framework will “threaten the survival of Israel”, said PM Benjamin Netanyahu, warning it would increase the risk of a “horrific war.”

In a phone conversation with the US President, the Israeli Prime Minister expressed his opposition to a framework agreement reached with Israel on Thursday.

Netanyahu has once again called for a “better deal” insisting that the only way to reach it would be “standing firm and increasing the pressure on Iran.”

Netanyahu warned that if the final deal due to be signed in June, fell in line with the current framework, it would “increase the risks of nuclear proliferation in the region and the risks of a horrific war.”

"It took us 18 months to get to the outline of a framework and now we're going to get to the fine print in what, three months?" asked Hayden, who led both the CIA and the National Security Agency. "That shows you how difficult this is.

"We have just agreed that Iran will be an industrial-strength nuclear state and that it will never be any more than one year away from having a nuclear weapon," he said.

Organizers of an academic conference on Israel are proceeding with an urgent legal challenge after the UK’s University of Southampton today confirmed that it has canceled the event.

As The Electronic Intifada reported on Tuesday, university officials told organizers that they intended to withdraw permission for the conference.

But the university did not publicly confirm the cancelation until today, when it issued a statement citing “the foreseeable risks to safety and public order at and near the conference venue” as a justification for shutting it down.

Why is the U.S. okay with Israel having nuclear weapons but not Iran?

Iranian officials sometimes respond to accusations that Tehran is seeking a nuclear weapons capability by replying that, not only do they not want a bomb, they'd actually like to see a nuclear-weapons-free Middle East. Yes, this is surely in part a deflection, meant to shift attention away from concerns about Iran's nuclear activities by not-so-subtly nodding to the one country in the region that does have nuclear weapons: Israel.

Why Iran Should Get the Bomb

Nuclear Balancing Would Mean Stability

Apr 03 06:50

Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Bomb?

I must start with a shocking confession: I am not afraid of the Iranian nuclear bomb.

I know that this makes me an abnormal person, almost a freak.

But what can I do? I am unable to work up fear, like a real Israeli. Try as I may, the Iranian bomb does not make me hysterical.

My father once taught me how to withstand blackmail: imagine that the awful threat of the blackmailer has already come about. Then you can tell him: Go to hell.

I have tried many times to follow this advice and found it sound. So now I apply it to the Iranian bomb: I imagine that the worst has already happened: the awful ayatollahs have got the bombs that can eradicate little Israel in a minute.

So what?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am totally in agreement. Iran should be allowed to have a nuclear bomb.

Let us start with the fact that Iran has not invaded another country in a war of aggression in over 200 years, standing in sharp contrast with Israel and the United States, which these days cannot seem to go three months without invading, bombing, drone striking, or overthrowing some other nation.

Then let us talk numbers. Let is suppose Iran has one or two nuclear weapons. Israel, now confirmed to have had nuclear weapons since the 1970s, has anywhere from 200 to 800 nuclear weapons, including hydrogen bombs that the US helped it develop, according to a recently declassified US document. Israel has so many nuclear weapons that they tried to sell one to the former government of South Africa, according to documents released by the new government of South Africa. The United States has thousands of nuclear weapons, enough to destroy the surface of planet Earth, and bounce the rubble for an encore. So if Iran had one or two nuclear weapons, they might put them in a museum or march them down the main street of Tehran in a military parade, but they are not going to attack either the US or Israel, because the end result would be Iran melted into a giant slab of green glass.

What an Iranian nuclear bomb does accomplish is to make it far more costly for either Israel or the United States to invade Iran. That the US and Israel want to attack Iran is no secret; both have been talking about such a plan for decades. Israel wants to smash a regional political rival (as they did in Iraq) while the US wants to restore Iran to US puppet rule in order to profit from Iran's oil. The push to prevent Iran from creating a nuclear weapon is not based on fears of an Iranian attack but fears of an Iran invulnerable to conquest. For the people of the world, already weary of war after 12 years, allowing Iran to have a nuclear deterrent seems like a good way to reduce the possibility of these wars expanding into an all out World War III in which nuclear weapons inevitably will be used by the US, Israel, and anyone else who has them.

And please keep in mind that despite all the talk about Iraq's non-existent nuclear weapons and Iran's non-existent nuclear weapons, only one nation has actually used nuclear weapons against the civilians of another country; the United States. If any nation should be barred from having nuclear weapons, we should start with the nation with a history of using them!

Iran deal threatens ‘survival of Israel’, increases risk of ‘horrific war’ – Netanyahu

A nuclear deal with Iran based on current framework will “threaten the survival of Israel”, said PM Benjamin Netanyahu, warning it would increase the risk of a “horrific war.”

Why Iran Distrusts the US in Nuke Talks

The Iranians may be a bit paranoid but, as the saying goes, this does not mean some folks are not out to get them. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his knee-jerk followers in Washington clearly are out to get them – and they know it.

Nowhere is this clearer than in the surreal set of negotiations in Switzerland premised not on evidence, but rather on an assumption of Iran’s putative “ambition” to become a nuclear weapons state – like Israel, which maintains a secret and sophisticated nuclear weapons arsenal estimated at about 200 weapons. The supposed threat is that Iran might build one.

FLASHBACK - Israel and the South African Nuclear Bomb Documents

Secret South African documents reveal that Israel offered to sell nuclear warheads to the apartheid regime, providing the first official documentary evidence of the state's possession of nuclear weapons. The "top secret" minutes of meetings between senior officials from the two countries in 1975 show that South Africa's defence minister, PW Botha, asked for the warheads and Shimon Peres, then Israel's defence minister and now its president, responded by offering them "in three sizes". The two men also signed a broad-ranging agreement governing military ties between the two countries that included a clause declaring that "the very existence of this agreement" was to remain secret. [Guardian]

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The time has come to ask why Iran should not be allowed to have nuclear weapons. The US justified its costly nuclear arsenal on the claim that it would deter aggression against our nation. Is not Iran entitled to deterrence as well? They face a nuclear-armed Israel, which has a long history of belligerence against its neighbors. Why do they not have a right to deterrence?

Of course, this is a rhetorical question. Both Israel and the US want an Iran that is easy to invade!

A senior Israeli official said this week that the immediate implication of a completed deal will be increased Israeli surveillance of Iran's nuclear installations and the threat of a military attack if there is proof that it is in breach of the agreement.

And Israel will always claim to have proof when they attack. They claimed they had proof that Iraq was building a nuclear weapons when they destroyed the power station at Osirak. Israel claimed to have proof that Egypt attacked the USS Liberty. Israel claimed to have proof Syria was building a bomb when they attacked that country. Of course, we never see the proof; only an anti-Semite would doubt Israel's word on anything, after all!

“The fact that they are subject to Apartheid, ethnic cleansing and — wickedly — a breach in international law and the Geneva Convention and United Nations resolutions by the government of Israel,” he told Sputnik in an exclusive interview.

A Belgian insurance company has refused to renew the policy of a Jewish kindergarten in Brussels. They cited the recent growth of anti-Semitic attacks on Jewish organizations, adding that the risk of insuring the school was too high.

The European Jewish Kindergarten is located in the same Brussels district as the European Union headquarters and it normally enrolls around 20 to 30 children per year. The decision by the Belgian insurance firm not to renew the school’s insurance policy was taken in relation to a marked increase in the number of terrorist and anti-Semitic attacks on Jewish institutions over the last few years.

Holocaust Denial Laws: Evidence Inadmissable, Defense Forbidden

In the speech, Stolz discusses her experiences as a defence lawyer for so-called Holocaust deniers in Germany, and describes the Orwellian system of state-enforced repression there which denies defendants (and their lawyers!) the right to explain themselves under threat of additional charges for the “repeat offence” of expressing a forbidden idea, even in their own defence in a court of law. Stolz further relates how the subject of the Holocaust itself has never been clearly or adequately defined by the German courts through the normal channel of judicial findings-of-fact in precedent decisions. Instead, the courts have relied on the arbitrary doctrine that the facts of the Holocaust are “self-evident” and thus in no need of proof, despite the obvious objection that the arguments of the “deniers” themselves clearly demonstrate that those facts are indeed contestable and thus cannot be “self-evident” by definition.

The decision was taken on the grounds of “health and safety” with the university claiming it did not have enough resources to mitigate the “risks.”

This comes just one month after the Royal Northern College Of Music cancelled a concert of mine for similar safety reasons. Like Southampton University, the RNCM was bullied by a violent pro-Israel group and it took us only a few hours to learn that the spokesperson for the pro-Israeli body was an infamous crook as well as a football hooligan (see here).

4 senators urge Obama not to impose peace conditions on Israel

Four senators sent a letter to President Barack Obama urging him not to bypass direct negotiations and impose conditions on Israel in an effort to create a two-state solution.

How Israel’s military stopped Netanyahu attacking Iran

A release of top-secret documents indicates that Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, has exaggerated – and possibly lied – with his repeated claims that Iran is on the brink of a nuclear bomb.

In September 2012, Netanyahu, armed with a cartoon, put it very bluntly at the UN General Assembly:

By next spring, at most by next summer at current enrichment rates, [Iran] will have finished the medium enrichment and move on to the final stage. From there, it’s only a few months, possibly a few weeks before they get enough enriched uranium for the first bomb.

However, as Netanyahu spoke, his military and intelligence services were assessing that Tehran was not enriching uranium to a level beyond that needed for a civil programme. They conclude: “Iran at this stage is not performing the activity necessary to produce weapons.”

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Wednesday that now was the time for the international community to stand its ground for a better deal with Iran, in a special press statement in Jerusalem shortly after negotiations resumed in Lausanne over Tehran's nuclear program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This from the leader of a nation that has nuclear weapons, refuses to sign the nuclear non-proliferation agreement, refuses IAEA inspections, was caught trying to sell a clandestine nuclear weapon to the former government of South Africa, and a history of constant belligerence to neighboring nations. Netanyahu demands the world get a better deal from Iran, which HAS signed the nuclear non-proliferation agreement, DOES allow IAEA inspections, and has not initiated a war of conquest against another nation in over 200 years!
