Justin Raimondo writes about the new agreement between the “P5+1” countries and Iran. And he thinks this is a moment of great danger, because Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (a.k.a. “Nutty-Yahoo”) doesn’t like it. Bibi is like Mikey on the Life cereal commercials: he hates everything.
The extremists who control the Israeli government are so afraid of Iran getting nuclear weapons, it will probably be they, the Israeli bureaucrats, who will nuke Iran out of their irrational fear which is based on propaganda, hate and ignorance, and mistranslations of various Iranian leaders and Ayatollahs shooting their mouths off. Some Israelis believe that Iran is an “existential threat” to them. But then, given that Bibi agrees with the Samson Option, it is more likely that the Israeli bureaucrats could be an existential threat to their surrounding countries including European ones.
Please note that the problem I have with these issues is not the people of these countries, Iran, Israel, or even the U.S. for the matter. The problem is with their governments, and the
parasites bureaucrats who run those illegitimate, compulsory institutions of monopoly and democracy.
Raimondo notes the possibility that the crazy bureaucrats of Israel could take revenge on the U.S. via some sort of false flag. For those who view such talk as “conspiracy theorist nonsense” and would never consider the possibilities (which would be mainly out of ignorance of actual history, a history which Washington’s Blog pointed out just recently), you might want to click the X button. But (and I’m sure the Israel Firsters will love this), Raimondo writes:
. . .
The third line of attack would be direct Israeli action against the US – no, not military action (don’t be silly), but some kind of covert action that would inflict enough damage to impact our ability to make the interim agreement permanent.
This isn’t pure speculation: in 1954, the Israelis recruited a group of Egyptians to plant bombs in Western targets, including the American information center, in major Egyptian cities. The idea was to blame the attacks on Islamists and Nasserites, and cause the British government to keep its troops in the Suez Canal zone. The plan failed, but only because the Israeli scheme was exposed: after years of denying the affair, the Israeli government finally owned up to it by awarding their agents medals of appreciation, bestowed on the surviving spies by President Moshe Katzav in 2005.
For years the Israelis have been saying their country faces an “existential” crisis on account of Iran’s nuclear program: another Holocaust, they have said, is imminent unless the Iranians are stopped. And Tehran, they aver, is intent on breaking any agreement they make with the West: the Iranians are determined to acquire nuclear weapons, and will stop at nothing in their drive to destroy Israel.
It doesn’t matter what the Israelis really believe: that they are saying this means we should take them at their word – and not underestimate their capabilities. Do I really have to remind my readers of this Carl Cameron story, run in four parts on Fox News in December of 2001, in which Cameron declared:
“Since September 11, more than 60 Israelis have been arrested or detained, either under the new patriot anti-terrorism law, or for immigration violations. A handful of active Israeli military were among those detained, according to investigators, who say some of the detainees also failed polygraph questions when asked about alleged surveillance activities against and in the United States.
“There is no indication that the Israelis were involved in the 9-11 attacks, but investigators suspect that they Israelis may have gathered intelligence about the attacks in advance, and not shared it. A highly placed investigator said there are ‘tie-ins.’ But when asked for details, he flatly refused to describe them, saying, ‘evidence linking these Israelis to 9-11 is classified. I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It’s classified information.’”
America has never been in greater danger than it is now. The battle between the US and Israel has always been fought on a covert level, but recently this hidden conflict has been coming closer to the surface – and is now about ready to erupt aboveground. . . .
I’m sure that stuff will freak a lot of people out. I hope so. But then, if someone grows up with certain views reinforced by one’s treasured authority figures, the mainstream news media and one’s government, they tend to not question information or propaganda handed down to them.
Well, a lot of people just don’t know about the real history of Israel, its pre-founding years, the founding itself and all these years since its founding. I wrote this a while back, Murray Rothbard wrote this article in 1967, and here is more. Most recently, the Israeli regime is destroying the Palestinians’ olive groves. Why? Because they can. And I posted this long list of links on various related actions by Israeli bureaucrats.
Besides today’s Justin Raimondo article, Kurt Nimmo writes that the latest nuclear agreement may result in Israel and Saudi Arabia attacking Iran (Hmmm. the Israelis teaming up with the Muslim religious extremist wackos of Saudi Arabia who live in the 9th Century. Good.), Annie Robbins writes about the story behind the deal, that Israel was kept out of the loop on the U.S.-Iran agreement, and Philip Weiss presents various reactions to the agreement.
Meanwhile, while he doesn’t mention these issues with Israel, an American veteran of the war in Afghanistan writes about patriotism. And I thought that in some way that would be relevant here. (But, I’m sure the authoritarians, the neocons, and the Israel Firsters won’t agree with it.)
