Now that the hearings have begun on the Iranian nuke deal and they will be very contentious……we will be bombarded with the illusion that if the deal goes through then the destruction of Israel will be imminent…..most of this stuff is lies and misinformation or at best hyperbole……..
I have been writing about the Middle East for a long time…..most of which goes unheeded but that will stop me from pointing out the fallacies that we Americans have deal with on a daily basis.
Thanx to the media and the neocons any time there is a post about something happening in Iran we always hear about the narrative that the media has given the American people…..that is that Iran seeks the destruction of the state of Israel. I am sure you have heard and quite possibly believed this manufactured paradigm…….
Now with the Iranian deal being batted around in the media and on Capital Hill we will hear once again bout the destruction of Israel if this deal goes through…….but is it truly the destruction of Israel the Iranian desire?
From a piece written by Akbar Ganji……….Ganji is NOT an apologist for Iran…..he was imprisoned there and his writings are banned in the country……in essence he is an enemy of the state of Iran……..
The rhetoric about destruction of Israel is unwise and inhumane. But, claiming that the Islamic Republic of Iran wishes physical destruction of Israel is sheer lie. It is not a lie because Iran does not have the military power to destroy Israel, as the United States and Israel have thousands of nuclear warheads to destroy Iran several time over. It is a lie because Netanyahu and others have distorted the unwise rhetoric about Israel’s existence.
“Destruction of Israel” that Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has spoken about refers to a referendum that he has proposed about the future of the entire historic Palestine in which all the Israelis and the Palestinians, including those who live in refugee camps in the Arab countries, would take part. Khamenei believe that if such a referendum is held, the Palestinians will win, and the state of Israel, not its Jewish citizens, will disappear through a democratic referendum. I have explained this view in detail elsewhere. So, Khamenei is pursuing a scenario similar to what happened in South Africa in which the power was transferred from the white minority to the black majority.
The president has also bought into this line of lying……but NO where has anyone said anything about the threats that Israel has issued to Iran about wiping them out first…..why is that?
It is time for all Americans to realize the inconsistencies in our policies concerning Israel…..Israel gets a free ride on so many levels that it has become sickening.
Israel is NOT a friend of the US……all this country is a tool for Israel to use to get their way in this world…….time for that to change!
