The Art of Manipulation: Israel Manoeuvres to Put US on War Footing with Iran

21 Oct

[Published 20 October, 2017]

In the week that the puppet president, Trump announced he was tearing up the nuclear non-proliferation deal with Iran, it appears that it is Israel that is the one pulling his strings from the outset. Rehmat’s World wrote that American writer and author Dan Sanchez in an article had predicted that the bloody war by Israel and its Zionist lobbyists in the Middle East was destined to fail, in which he calls Israel a warmonger. Even as early as 1990, former president Reagan accused Israel of misleading him over the Iran contra affair.

Trump’s announcement that it was a “bad deal” clearly illustrates his willingness to wag tail when told by his master but also his naivety on the world stage and grasping of the fundamentals of basic diplomacy. The obtuse and train wreck of a moron even had the brass neck to lay blame on Iran for successive US invasions in the Middle East and North Africa.

For the record, when the security of the entire region of the Middle East and, indeed, the rest of the world is at stake, the last thing any sane individual should do, is seek to antagonise a wrongly perceived obstacle and enemy to world peace. Even the most simple-minded individual should know this.

As David Frum put it in the Atlantic, Trump’s threats aren’t credible because he himself isn’t credible. In other words, Trump is a complete moron. In the same piece, Frum goes on to suggest that Trump’s announcement is not unwelcome to some. Well, yes, Israel wants it to happen.

Trump should have learned this lesson from the recent response he received from Kim Jong Un after his sabre-rattling and making baseless threats to destroy North Korea.

In short, Trump has absolutely no power at all to tear up the deal, whatever Israel demands and neither does the US Congress, or the US State department. The sheer notion of a war with Iran is ludicrous wishful thinking at best. Israel can whistle.

Rightly so, Trump was immediately slapped down by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and a European Commission spokeswoman. Both of whom reminded Trump that the deal was a multi-lateral and not a bi-lateral agreement. Even France and Britain have spoken out against Trump on pulling out of the deal.

As was the case with the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan before, Israel’s demands and expectations, are that the US ultimately dismantle Iran by creating another proxy war under false pretences of WMDs. This is not going to happen, because the rest of the world will not allow it. To tear it up would require the consent of all parties to the deal, which is never going to happen. China and Russia will never acquiesce.

Feck knows what Trump’s thinking was when coming out with this statement and obviously he wasn’t listening to any advice given to him before making it except that which was being fed to him via Israel.

Just like most other US president’s, Trump is another of Israel’s lapdog, acting like a deranged wind-up duracell bunny, with a perma case of foot-in-mouth and crass arrogance in a ‘who’s got the biggest dick contest.’

In addition to subsidising Israel’s economy to the tune of billions of US taxpayer dollars, the US and Israel have always had a special relationship regarding but-not-limited-to, who in the Middle East is permitted to possess such weapons and go unchecked.

The relationship has always favoured Israel, as you can see here:

For those somehow unaware or ill-informed, the deal between Israel and the US, is that the latter acts as guard dog, whilst neglecting the American people, in favour of funding Israel’s tech developments and protecting its expansionism.

In Netanyahu’s recent speech to the UN General Assembly, he declared, “Israel’s policy toward the nuclear deal with Iran is very simple: Change it or cancel it.” And he made no secret of what that meant: If Trump doesn’t “cancel” the deal, he must get rid of its “sunset clause” and demand that Iran end its advanced centrifuges and long-range missile program, among other fundamentally unattainable objectives.

It is also well-known that Jared Kushner is a strong advocate of Israel and a longstanding friend of Netanyahu’s, wrote Gareth Porter in the above article. In his book, Porter contends that the nuclear threat by Iran is entirely manufactured by Israel.

To add further weight to Israel pulling the strings, it was the Israeli senior diplomat, Elad Ratson, attached to the British embassy of Israel, who kind of let the let the cat of the bag, so-to-speak.

Within a few days of Trump’s announcement, the US Treasury put out a statement designating Iran’s Revolutionary Guard a supporter of global terrorism but stopping short of accusing it of the manufacture of weapons of mass destruction.

As with many others, Ratson was quick to jump on and praise the statement, suggesting that it was a great move. When asked what he meant and to clarify the role of Israel in the matter he clammed up and immediately blocked the person asking him on social media but not before agreeing that war was on the cards. Ratson also praised the decision by the US to pull funding and support for UNESCO and suggested the UNRWA was next in Israel’s sights for criticism of Israel’s human rights abuses against Palestinians.

In June 2017, Hanin Abou Salem, for Al-Jazeera, claimed that the Netanyahu wants to disband the UNRWA because of its humanitarian work with Palestinian refugees. Ratson’s posts on social media and comments made by Ambassador Nikki Haley to the UN would seem to confirm. Until there is a solution between Israel and Palestine then the mandate of UNRWA is not done, says Salem. Therefore, the only way for Israel to resolve its Palestinian problem is to remove UNRWA.

As stated earlier, all of this is manufactured to serve Israel’s interests, whilst it, Israel, wreaks havoc across the world unabated. To be clear, Israel is a warmonger and worse than all other countries combined, in my personal opinion.

I never thought I would say this, but Israel is a pariah, largely responsible for all the wars in the Middle East and North Africa since the 70s, and humanity’s greatest threat. Yes, the US invaded and did the killing but Israel put them up to, causing complete carnage and creating the current refugee crisis in Europe in the process.

If Israel continues its meddling in this way, then it needs to be put down like the rabid dog that it is. Either Israel plays peacemaker and starts being civil or drag it and Netanyahu to the international criminal court. Should that fail and Israel continues in the way it has been, then dismantling it is the only solution in order to save the rest of humanity.

As the Kuwaiti official, Marzouq Al-Ghanim said this week to the Israeli delegation at conference in Russia: “occupiers… if you have no shame… get out of the room.”

EXPOSED: British General Election and Israeli Lobby

9 Jun

[Published 09 June 2017]

As the Russian media and Putin’s government have been exposed for interfering in the election of Donald Trump and efforts to subvert the outcome of the election of France’s President Macron, so have Israel’s efforts to alter the outcome of the UK General Election.

President Macon of France, whose private emails were leaked, noted in the Youtube clip shown above, that no foreign state power should use propaganda or seek to undermine and interfere with the democratic processes of any other state as a means to its own ends.

This is exactly why Donald Trump is now facing impeachment for his collusion with the Russian government in the hacking of the DNC and smearing Hillary Clinton’s failed presidential campaign. 

In the case of this blog, it can now be confirmed that three British-based organisations have been exposed in actively attempting to subvert and influence the democracy of British politics, by specifically seeking to gerrymander the outcome of the election.

All of the organisations mentioned, have direct links to the Israeli government itself.

A search of social media posts confirms that one of these nefarious organisations, the Israel Britain Alliance, had its website set up anonymously by the World Zionist Federation.

In its campaign to muster up support in the UK General 2017, the Israel Britain Alliance, which was set up in February 2016 and renewed its web domain registration in February 2017, just six weeks before Theresa May announced the June election on the 18 April, 2017, states that its purpose is to persuade election candidates to sign up to its pledge to support Israel.

Its campaign appears to have had some success, in that more than 200 election candidates have pledged their support of the State of Israel.

Another of these lobbying organisations, is the ‘We Believe in Israel’ campaign website, which appears to have been set up by the British Israel Communications and Research Centre.

One of its directors, is listed as Richard Adam Cannon, who is also listed as a director of the London Jewish Forum and the London Press Club. The ‘We Believe in Israel’ website, lists several activities, including campaigning against UK foreign aid being given to charities supporting the education of Palestinian children.

Luke Akehurst, its director and an active Labour member, boasts the success of the pledge to lobby election candidates to support Israel and its efforts to criminalise the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement that opposes illegal settlements and human rights abuses of Palestinians.

In its general election ‘campaign toolkit’, the We Believe in Israel website, gives volunteers and supporters ‘How-to’ guides on ‘lobby[ing] MPs’, ‘influence[ing] people’, ‘dealing with anti-Israel arguments’, ‘joining a political or trade union party’, ‘sending campaign emails’, and provides a number of lesson plans, resources, and factsheets on preparedness and countering criticism of Israel.

A third organisation, the Anglo Israel Association, is run by one Ruth Saunders. Its president is the current UK Israeli Ambassador, Mark Regev, who has repeatedly dismissed the role of Shai Masot, the Israeli diplomat etc, who was sacked and ordered to return to Israel for actively subverting UK politics and democracy with threats to ‘bring down’ MPs considered to be anti-Israel.

No one is suggesting that the organisations listed in this blog article are or have been involved in leaking false, hacked, or misleading information to the media in the UK General Election, but not one of these organisations are registered as lobbying organisations, which is a legal requirement under UK law.

The purpose in their campaign is, and always has been, to influence UK foreign policy in regard to the Middle East peace process between Israel and Gaza and the wider Middle East conflict regarding Iran and Syria, which is part of a longerterm plan to remove Israel’s enemies.

Doh! UK Zionist Lobby Exposes The Zionist Lobby

24 Jan

 

Earlier today, on the 24 January 2017, the Times of Israel published an article penned by Justin Cohen, one of its News Editors.

The article concerns the recent 4-part undercover documentary conducted by Al-Jazeera; to expose – what can only be described, as the seriously seditious activities of Shai Masot at the behest of the Israeli government – to undermine British politics and democracy – including attempts at removing political opponents, like Sir Alan Duncan and Jeremy Corbyn – who are deemed to be obstacles and therefore incompatible with Israel’s aspirations and long-term goals.

Despite a public outcry and requests made by members of opposition parties – thus far, the PM, Theresa May, and the rest of her government – have categorically refused all calls for a public inquiry into the extent and scale of the role of Israeli government, its officials, actors, and diplomats, attempting to subvert and influence British democracy, favourably to Israel’s goals.

It is self-evident in Cohen’s article, that neither members of the UK Jewry, nor the Israeli government itself, are particularly happy about Al-Jazeera’s far-reaching expose of the tactics that the Israeli government is willing to employ and the lengths it is willing to go in order to push its expansionist agenda.

When Al-Jazeera’s expose was first aired – many (if not all) members of the Jewish diaspora, were unequivocally dismissive, and frankly insouciant – about the gravity of such nefarious interference of a foreign state (Israel) in another state’s (UK) sovereign powers – to independently and democratically, determine what its approach to and its foreign policy should entail. I dare say some were even apoplectic.

After Shai Masot was caught out in his candid admission of state-sanctioned and funded covert operations, to undermine British foreign and domestic policy, a prominent member of the UK Jewry, Jonathan Hoffman – who is a former Bank of England official – recently saw fit to use his own influence, to complain to members of the UK Parliament and House of Commons – seeking that Al-Jazeera be reprimanded for exposing something that is in all our interests to know and be aware of.

And guess what happened, folks?

Yes, you guessed it right!

The British government, like a compliant and pathetic lap dog rolling over on its back for its master, has happily kow-towed and will consider acting on Hoffman’s demands for it to reprimand Al-Jazeera.

(Now just for clarity, Theresa May, please remind us who your ‘Mamma’ is?)

 

Recently, Mr Hoffman, has let it be known, that anyone who speaks out against what many consider to be a rogue and terrorist state, its plans for expansion, or its human rights abuses, should automatically be considered an enemy of the Jewish diaspora and Israel itself.

Hoffman has made clear (in a recent Facebook post) that all dissenters should be discredited by “shining a light on the dissenter”, as opposed to “whispers to discredit them”.

(It appears that Mr Hoffman has since deleted or altered his Facebook account, attempting to disprove that he made these comments, but screenshots were obtained, prior to deletion).

You can also see Jonathan Hoffman in action here:

 

If, for some bizarre reason, you do not consider Mr Hoffman’s efforts to be a clear example and therefore somewhat of a confirmation of the existence of the Israeli/ Zionist lobby in action and its efforts to influence foreign democracies in its favour, one might wish to have a rethink about that.

Clearly, Mr Hoffman’s personal interventions, as a respected member of the Jewish establishment in the UK, to seek punitive measures against Al-Jazeera – for merely exposing the truth regarding Israel’s sedition – should be considered nothing short of an attempt at coercion or undue influence. In the very least, ‘crying foul’ or claiming ‘but that’s not fair’, when you have been caught out doing the deed.

In the last few days the Campaign Against AntiSemitism (CAA), a so-called UK-based charity, that is known to use legal means to silence Israel’s critics, has also decided to flex its muscles, by lodging a formal complaint against Al-Jazeera with the Broadcasting Regulator, OFCOM.

Amongst many other accusations, CAA’s complaint claims that Al-Jazeera’s expose is “mendacious”, “inaccurate”, amounting to “unfair treatment” (of Masot?), and even “promot(ing) incitement”. CAA is also seeking to force or impose upon OFCOM for it to use and adopt a definition of antiSemitism that is widely disputed, because it infringes on universal rights of free speech, expression, assembly and protest.

In making these complaints, the wider agenda of Hoffman and CAA here, is, once and for all, to finally criminalise any and all criticism of Israel’s persistent human rights abuses and illegal occupation of Palestinians and further expansion into settlements. All of which, not doubt, could not happen without the direction, influence, and input of Israel itself.

Talk about shooting yourself and your cause in the foot, by trying to silence critics and, in actuality only serving to prove the ‘conspiracy’ of the ‘Lobby’ to be true by your own actions and interventions, Mr Hoffman and CAA?

Now, if you are reading this and you are in any way concerned – as any vaguely intelligent person should be – regarding any foreign state unduly influencing your own government’s sovereignty, you should sign this petition.

It seems clear and simple: Zionism is racism and a truly subversive element in world politics, that may well be to the detriment of all humankind!
