Warmonger Netanyahu at UN

 

by Stephen Lendman

 

Some Israeli officials around him think he's deranged for good reason. His satanic eyes alone give him away. He's a world class thug, a menace. He heads Israel's most extremist ever government.

 

He exceeds the worst of Ariel Sharon and previous hardline leaders. He's an embarrassment to democratic governance. He should have been kept out of New York instead of let in. He should be locked up for humanity's sake.

 

He represents state terrorism, occupation harshness, racist hate, neoliberal rapaciousness, and potential catastrophic regional war able to go global if waged.

 

He deplores peace. He's all take and no give. He calls diplomacy a four-letter word. He turns a blind eye to equity and justice. He's contemptuous of human and civil rights. He maliciously calls Iran's peaceful nuclear program an existential threat. 

 

He's silent on Israel's stockpile of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons. He won't say it's state policy to use them if threatened.

 

He's unfit to serve. He's a menacing danger to humanity. On September 27, he proved it in New York. At the same time, he made a fool of himself before a world audience.

 

His cartoon bomb went viral. It bombed. He looked more cartoonish than his prop. One cartoonist showed a picture of Daffy Duck's head exploding. An observer referred to Bibi's "Clint Eastwood chair" moment.

 

Another compared his explosive to what Warner Bros.' animated character Wile E. Coyote used in Looney Tunes cartoons. A London Guardian commentator said his stunt succeeded but not the way he intended. 

 

The New Yorker said "the ridiculous deserves ridicule." His "graphic, which he apparently made at Kinkos, is so ridiculous."

 

A Washington Post op-ed asked if his stunt was a "poor choice of a ridiculously-looking, over-simplified bomb cartoon (or) a calculated choice (to) create (an) indelible image….everyone would be talking about?"

 

He didn't calculate what they'd say. The Wall Street Journal compared him to Nikitia Krushchev's shoe-banging incident.

 

What's at stake, of course, is war or peace. Netanyahu's "red line" bluster wore thin long ago. 

 

The Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation is a national coalition of more 380 groups with thousands of members. It asked: "Bibi, where's the red line on apartheid?"

 

Activist Ozzy BonHalen posted a green and white graphic showing Palestinian land lost since 1946.

 

Then, Palestine was all green. After the 1947 UN partition Plan, 44% remained. After June 1967, it was 22%. All that's left now are  isolated occupied cantons and besieged Gaza.

 

Netanyahu's claims about Iran developing nuclear weapons, and the Islamic Republic posing an existential threat are falsified, and he knows it.

 

So do world leaders. Few have the courage to say so. Even fewer denounce Israel's nuclear stockpile.

 

Like he always does on television and other interviews, Netanyahu raged against Iran. He unjustly accused President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of anti-Semitic rants. He also falsely claimed he called the holocaust a lie and wants Israel destroyed.

 

"This Iranian regime is fueled by an extreme fundamentalism that burst onto the world scene three decades ago after lying dormant for centuries."

 

"In the past thirty years, this fanaticism has swept the globe with a murderous violence and cold-blooded impartiality in its choice of victims. It has callously slaughtered Moslems and Christians, Jews and Hindus, and many others."

 

Iran threatens no one. Netanyahu knows it. It hasn't attacked another country in over two centuries. In contrast, Israel is a modern-day Sparta. It was created in blood and shed it ever since. 

 

It commits daily violence against defenseless Palestinians. It threatens regional conflict able to go global. He menaces Jews as well as Muslims. Most Israelis want no more of him.

 

A Haaretz poll days earlier revealed that half the Israeli public "greatly fear(s)" for Israel's survival in case of war against Iran. Most respondents think the chance it may happen "medium" or "high."

 

Tel Aviv University statistician Camil Fuchs conducted the poll. Only one-fourth of those interviewed aren't afraid for Israel's future. Less than one-fifth favor war without US support.

 

Nearly five in six Palestinians and 77% of Israelis believe attacking Iran will launch a regional conflict.

 

As long as Netanyahu remains prime minister, war remains prioritized. He compared Israeli "civilization" to Iranian "barbarism." Doing so inverts truth. Iran promotes peace, diplomacy, and cooperation. Israel can't wait to start another war.

 

Like Obama, Netanyahu is a serial liar. They're both world class thugs. They claim aggressive wars are liberating ones or waged in self-defense. They call mass slaughter and destruction humanitarian intervention.

 

They think inviolable rule of law principles are quaint and out of date. They believe "do unto others" no longer matters. They champion might over right. 

 

They dismissively ignore human need. They believe their way alone is the right way. They target non-believers with death and destruction.

 

"The hour is getting late, very late," Netanyahu raged. Iran represents "a fanatic ideology bent on world domination." 

 

"It makes little difference whether these lethal weapons are in the hands of the world's most dangerous terrorist regime, or the world's most dangerous terrorist organization."

 

His entire anti-Iranian rant sounded more like a bad film script no respectable producer would approve.

 

Make no mistake. He's hell bent for war and intends to get it. Obama's no different. Disagreement between them is only over timing. 

 

Both leaders ignore over 100 participating Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) countries expressing support for Iran. 

 

In late August, they met in Tehran for six days. The New York Times said NAM "handed….Iran a diplomatic victory." The Christian Science Monitor suggested efforts to isolate Iran failed. 

 

The Russian International News Agency (RIA Novosti) said participants supported Iran and its peaceful nuclear program. The Tehran Times said "NAM summit set back US-Israeli campaign to isolate Iran."

 

Press TV called the summit the "most important" political event in the Islamic Republic's history. Iran emerged standing tall. Its government gained prestige. America, Israel, and rogue allies got long overdue black eyes. 

 

A final communique contained around 700 clauses. Topics addressed included: 

 

opposition to the misuse of human rights;

 

global nuclear disarmament; 

 

opposition to racism and Islamophobia;

 

support for Iran's peaceful nuclear program;

 

opposition to US sanctions;

 

opposition to outside interference in Syria's internal affairs;

 

support for national sovereignty; and

 

solidarity with and support for Palestinian rights.

 

Perhaps countries at a future summit will denounce US and Israeli lawlessness and distance themselves from it.

 

Netanyahu spoke two days after Obama. He suppressed the worst of US crimes. He couldn't disguise longstanding American imperial arrogance. 

 

He railed unjustifiably against Iran. He barely stopped short of declaring war. He came close, saying:

 

"Make no mistake: a nuclear-armed Iran is not a challenge that can be contained."

 

"It would threaten the elimination of Israel, the security of Gulf nations, and the stability of the global economy. It risks triggering a nuclear arms race in the region and the unraveling of the non-proliferation treaty."

 

"That is why….the United States will do what we must to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. (There's) still time, (but it's) not unlimited."

 

He has reelection on his mind. He won't act until post-November 6.

 

War plans are longstanding. All independent governments are targeted. World dominance depends on replacing them with pro-Western puppet ones. Syria and Iran are prime targets.

 

On September 28, Mossad-connected DEBKAfile (DF) headlined "White House irked by Netanyahu's 'red line' speech, reverts to Iran diplomacy," saying:

 

Hillary Clinton "berated" his presentation. "Neither released a statement" following their post-speech conversation.

 

DF sources claim "Clinton made it clear that (Obama won't) tolerate" red line rants. He's focused on reelection. Then he'll act in a second term. So will Romney if he wins. Increasingly it looks unlikely.

 

DF cited "Washington sources" saying "White House and Israeli emissaries (agree) that Israel will hold back" until post-election. Netanyahu, of course, wouldn't dare attack Iran without US approval and support. Threatening otherwise is meaningless bluster.

 

In the mean time, Obama established a "special team." It'll set out an "end game for Iran."

 

It was set out long ago. Only its timing is unknown. It's also subject to change. So are tactics to achieve objectives. That's how wars are planned and waged even after launching them. 

 

Obama and Netanyahu are ruthless and irresponsible. They're mad dog leaders. Both threaten humanity. Anything ahead is possible. Risking regional conflict able to go global is madness. 

 

Watch for diplomatic toing and froing to play out ahead of bombs away in some form. It's practically written in the stars. It's been in Pentagon plans for years. The same goes for Syria and other targeted countries. Washington has a long list.

Hey kidz!!!  Behold the face of World Zionism . ..  with "props" . . . ;)

 

So, do you think Benjamin Netanyahu is the kind of guy that would "think" that

carrying out the massive 9-11 "false flag' operation against the United States in order

to both kill the "Israel-Palestine Two State Solution" . . .

 

. . . and launch the "Greater Israel" agenda of "7 Countries in 5 Years" dream of

the  post-Irgun Likud Party  . . .

 

. . . would be a "good idea"???

 

Is this the face of a person that thinks that "The Ends Justify The Means"???

 

Why would anyone continue to support and defend this criminal and his agenda?

 

Yet, WE THE PEOPLE are surrounded by people that continue to move heaven and hell

to protect this man and his Zionist followers from being held acountable for their crimes.

 

As many of you are aware, in the weeks surrounding the 11th Anniversary of 9-11,

a very courageous Public Television Station in Colorado aired the new documentary

from the over 1700+ Licensed Architects and Engineers for 9-11 Truth entitled,

"9-11:  Explosive Evidence - Experts Speak Out".  

 

This PBS station then linked this documenatry to their website . . . where it went

"Truth Viral" and quickly hit the #1 Slot for most shared videos for the entire

PBS network as shown here:

 

"9/11: Experts Speak Out Reached #1 on PBS-TV"

 

This prompted a flood of requests around this Great Republic for other PBS affiliate

stations to also air this important documentary.

 

Yet, rather than facing the SCIENTIFIC FACTS in this documenatry or even allowing

this subject to be put up for discussion, we in the 9-11 Truth Movement  were instead

met by more "Gatekeeping" and blatant censorship from most of these PBS affiliates.

 

Here is the response I received from Mr. Bryan Sodemann, assistant Director of Programming

at PBS affiliate UNC-TV here in North Carolina.

Dear Mr. Blackburn,

After reading your response this morning I thought some further explanation was needed as

to why we have not offered this program to UNC-TV viewers. Also, know that I am not here

to change your mind about PBS or NPR and whether you support them or not.  However,

I am writing to help you understand our position on why we have not scheduled this program.

First, and in all honesty, we simply did not know or were aware of this program until your

correspondence to us.  We have no program record in our database that this program even

existed, and we have no program offer from any of our program distributors stating that they

were offering this program. Yes, a PBS station had aired this program, but this program was

not offered to all PBS stations (as far as I am aware), so my thinking is that this was locally produced,

aired and pledged in Colorado.  My point being is that this program did not go through proper channels

in offering the program to the system for us to even consider scheduling the program. We can't schedule

a program unless we are aware of it, and we were not aware of this program.  Moreover, whether a

PBS station has produced a program or not has no bearing as to whether we will offer a program or not. 

If it's a fair and balanced presentation we will consider it for our air.  Now, after being made aware of the

program and doing some investigating, I have been able to screen this program in its entirety,

and this is what I have concluded.

As you know, year after year, PBS is recognized by Americans as the most trusted institution in the US.

That is in part because, when we broadcast a documentary, we make sure that the producers did their

absolute best to research all possible angles of the story they are discussing. I am no advocate for

the foolish notion of "unbiased" journalism. However, I do believe that it is essential for a documentary

producer - especially for a public television producer - to do their best to fairly present the perspective

of those who disagree with them.

There are dozens, if not hundreds, of 9/11 conspiracy videos floating around the country. I have sat through

a few of them and they range from painfully boring to quite entertaining. But none of them dares to actually

speak with people who disagree with them. Despite describing itself as "non-partisan" and "strictly scientific,

" 9/11 Explosive Evidence appears to be no exception to this rule. It claims to represent the views of

"over 1700 architects and engineers," but ignores the opinions of the vast majority of the hundreds of

thousands of people employed in these professions in the United States.



By airing 9/11 Explosive Evidence, we would essentially be endorsing the notion that our government

knew about, participated in, and/or covered up the mass murder of nearly 3,000 Americans. Furthermore,

we would be doing so without following any of the journalistic standards or core values that make, as you

are aware, public television the trusted institution that it is today.



No matter how many views this program gets and no matter how much money it makes, we simply don't

see how it could be worth the integrity we would be giving away.   Therefore, we will not be offering this

program on UNC-TV.  You may not agree with our position, but I do hope you have a little more understanding

of why we have taken this position.  Have a great day. Thank you.

How much longer are WE THE PEOPLE going to let criminals like Benjamin Netanyahu and his

fanatic Zionist followers dictate not only U.S. Foreign Policy . . .

 

. . . but what WE THE PEOPLE are allowed to view on our OWN Public Televsion networks?

 

 

"Say it ain't so, Joe
Please say it ain't so
That's not what I want to hear,  Joe
And I've got a right to know.
Say it ain't so, Joe
Please say it ain't so
I'm sure there telling us lies Joe
Please tell us it ain't so.
They told that us our hero has played his trump card
He doesn't know how to go on.
We're clinging to his charm and determined smile
But the good ole days are gone.
The army and the empire may be falling apart
And the money has gotten scarce.
One man's word held the country together
But the truth is getting fierce."

-  "Say It Ain't So, Joe"  by Murray Head/Roger Daltrey
