To Benjamin Netanyahu and his US Stooges, Any Deal with Iran a Bad Deal

By Paul Balles

Al-Jazeerah, CCUN, November 18, 2013


To the Israelis, any deal made between the world powers and Iran would be a bad deal.
It's obvious from Israeli reactions to the talks in Geneva that the only action acceptable to Israel would be to bomb Iran.
Minister of Military Affairs Moshe Ya’alon describes any agreement with Iran as "a historic mistake".
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also rejected a possible nuclear agreement with Iran as “a very bad deal”.
Using an old canard, "Israeli’s Economy Minister Naftali Bennett said Israel's security is in jeopardy.”
These war hawks want America to bomb Iran.  Anything less would be a bad deal. Anything more "a good deal".
The American public needs to awaken to the continuous propaganda designed to lead the world into a full-scale war?
Israel, the only country in the Middle East with 200-300 nuclear bombs, complains about their need for security.
James Petras has pointed out that "we have the situation in the US today where the Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu dictates the ‘negotiating terms’ to the Presidents of the 52 Major American Jewish Organizations.
"According to Netanyahu’s dictates, the Islamic Republic of Iran must stop all uranium enrichment – including that for medical, research and energy use, close the enrichment facilities at Qom, remove all enriched uranium and halt the production of plutonium.
"Having set these ridiculous, sovereignty-killing conditions on Iran and having the unconditional support of the entire Zionist Power Configuration, Netanyahu proceeds to sabotage the peaceful, diplomatic process via the lap-puppies in the US Congress. As one Washington pundit noted the Obama regime 'is very conscious of the fact that Israeli views on Iran have a large influence (sic) on opinion in the US Congress'.”
With billions of dollars worth of American military equipment, Israel is one of the strongest military forces in the world, yet they complain about their security.
While constantly spreading propaganda about wanting peace with security, Israelis go overboard supporting wars for America to fight in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The same propaganda encourages neighbours of Israel to fight with themselves.
If Egypt, Libya, Syria and Iraq are engaged in civil strife, that translates into partial security for Israel.
Prompted by lobbies like AIPAC, America simply supports whatever Israel wants, regardless of the cost in lives or American taxpayer dollars.
Israel couldn't care less how much their security wars cost in homeless refugees or the world's hungry children that could be fed.
Meanwhile, to beef up their security argument, the Israeli war hawks have convinced Americans that Israel is surrounded by terrorists.
According to Jeff Rense, Israel holds the world record in the number of towns & villages it ethnically cleansed--500 plus. Who's the terrorist?
Israel managed to get America to designate Hezbollah and Hamas "terrorist organizations".
Israel holds the world record in the number of refugees it deported--4 million plus, and the world record in the number of homes it demolished--60,000 plus.
Hamas and Hezbollah haven’t come near achieving records of terrorism like those.
Also according to Rense, Israel has killed more innocent civilians per capita than any other country--50,000 plus, and Israel has imprisoned more civilians per capita than any other country--250,000 plus.
With that in mind, reflect on both Israeli and American designation of Hezbollah and Hamas as terrorist organizations.
Nelson Mandela commented wisely, "I was called a terrorist yesterday, but when I came out of jail, many people embraced me, including my enemies, and that is what I normally tell other people who say those who are struggling for liberation in their country are terrorists."
