IS IT TOO MUCH TO ASK?
I mean seriously. It’s like getting up every morning and having to go to a job your conscience requires you to do, but you dread doing. Dragging yourself out of bed, turning on the computer, typing in the word “Israel” with the slim hope that nothing evil, bad, horrible, untoward, Arab death related or land theft related will appear. You wait 2 seconds, and just like yesterday hundreds upon thousands of nasty depressing search results appear like clockwork. Can we just teleport Israel somewhere else in the universe? A place where they can be all alone, where the world can be safe from their aggression, bigotry, racism and war mongering? Maybe in some future world, if by then, Israel has not caused the total annihilation of this planet by succeeding in its “holy war” with America’s help against Arabs, that is. Until then, those of us with a human conscience will get up every day, just like yesterday and tomorrow and we will keep chipping away. So, following that depressing rant, here’s today’s insanity from the AP regarding Israel and nukes, which I will dutifully take apart:
Israel says Mideast not ready for nuclear arms banThis is to thwart any US efforts to rid the region of nuclear weapons. Think about this for a minute. No matter what your views are on Nuclear Weapons, I believe Obama would like to rid the Middle East of all nukes. Obama wants them all to sign up to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation treaty, which requires inspections by international teams. Now, why would Israel not want to do this? After all, Iran has signed the agreement and allows inspections. Not Israel. This is because only “Israel” actually has nukes in the region, they hide them, and they don’t allow inspection which is why they have NOT signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty like Iran did. Now, common sense dictates that if NO country in the Middle East had nukes, then the threat level in the entire region would go down quickly. Israel doesn’t really want that, it does not serve their purpose which is to anger Iran constantly so that they harden their stance, which in turn gives Israel all the reasons to attack it. They actually used this very same tactic in the run up to the Iranian elections, all the talk of attacking Iran; the mock war games they did, the big mobilazation of troops practicing bombing runs. All designed to ensure an Ahmadinejad victory, it worked. Israel does not want an even playing field in the Middle East; instead, they want the ability to wipe out their neighbours if they decide it suits their Zionist interests of expanding their land grab and controlling the entire region like one giant prison.

Details and pictures leaked in 1986 to the Sunday Times of London by Mordechai Vanunu, a renegade former technician at Israel's Dimona nuclear plant, led foreign experts to conclude Israel has the world's sixth-largest stockpile of nuclear weapons. Vanunu was later kidnapped by Israeli intelligence agents in Rome, brought back to Israel to stand trial, and served 18 years in prison, including 11 in solitary confinement. Vanunu is now free, but is banned from leaving the country.Now, you really have to look at what this statement is meant to do. Firstly you have to note that it is meant to anger Iran (and other Muslim countries in the Region) by stating that “The Muslim World Must Behave Like Western Europe” In other words telling all Muslims they must become just like Westerners, when they are NOT Westerners, they are Muslims, a different culture. Secondly, he is using the same of Politics of Fear in his statement that Bush used on the American people and the world, as his statement is also directed at the West. When he refers to the region being “too unruly” for a “ban” on Nuclear weapons, in essence what he really means is twofold; ONE- that “Only Israel should be allowed to have Nukes and they will fight the Muslims for you and thus protect you” And TWO-the other subliminal message to the West is again the one where he claims Muslims must behave like Westerners. That is intended to underscore the difference in the Western culture and the Muslim culture; again this is the Politics of Fear being used here. He is attempting to instill fear into Westerners as they have a fundamental lack of knowledge of Muslims and Islam. Israel hopes to keep it that way! Next:
Israel's defense minister said in remarks published Thursday that the Middle East is too unruly for a region-wide nuclear arms ban, arguing that the Muslim world must first "behave like Western Europe." Israel is widely believed to possess nuclear arms, though it refuses to confirm or deny it. Barak made no mention of Israeli weapons in the interview, but pointedly said Israel would not agree to a nuclear weapons ban
Defense Minister Ehud Barak also said Iran's nuclear program is a threat to world peace. His comments come ahead of a U.S.-sponsored world meeting later this month to discourage nuclear proliferation.Now this statement is also directed to the West and to Europe. What he is telling them in effect is that Iran is the danger, not Israel. And that everyone should ignore the Nukes Israel already has, and focus only on Iran who does not have any yet. Again, it’s the politics of fear and deflection at work here. Typical Hasbara effect to avoid anyone asking Israel to own up to their stockpile of Nuclear Weapons and sign the treaty. More:
Israeli officials have compared Iran to Nazi Germany and its attempt to eradicate the Jewish people.Oh how Israel loves to refer to that one statement made by Ahmadinejad, they are ever so greatful to him for giving them one tiny statement they can use over and over again, until the end of time, or the end of Iran. But, how can anyone blame Iran one little bit for saying anything about Israel, it’s only words, whereas opposed to Israel, they actually DO have a track record of attempting to carry our their vile statements such as these:
And he continues by repeating his threat to the Muslim world, that they MUST become “Westernized” see here"We have to kill all the Palestinians unless they are resigned to live here as slaves." (Chairman Heilbrun of the Committee for the Re-election of General Shlomo Lahat, the mayor of Tel Aviv, October 1983)
"We must use terror, assassination, intimidation, land confiscation, and the cutting of all social services to rid the Galilee of its Arab population." (Israel Koenig, "The Koenig Memorandum")
"When we have settled the land, all the Arabs will be able to do about it will be to scurry around like drugged cockroaches in a bottle." (Raphael Eitan, Chief of Staff of the Israeli Defence Forces, New York Times, 14 April 1983)
"Until the Muslim world from Marakesh to Bangladesh behaves like Western Europe, there can be no debate on nuclear disarmament," Barak told the Yediot Ahronot daily.And Iran has attacked no one, can Israel say that? A good way to judge the future, is to look to the past. If you do that, then you can clearly see who is the aggressor in the Middle East, and Israel holds that distinction, not Iran. So, let me finish outlining Israel’s duplicity by quoting a former Israeli General, Then ask yourself if Iran made the following statement what would the worlds’ reaction be?
Yet all these quotes and many other racist threats of annihilation towards ALL Muslims are conveniently ignored, thanks to America. And Israel is given carte blanche to continue its quest to cleanse the region of all Muslims who refuse to live under Israel’s control."We should prepare to go over to the offensive. Our aim is to smash Lebanon, Trans-Jordan, and Syria. The weak point is Lebanon, for the Moslem regime is artificial and easy for us to undermine. We shall establish a Christian state there, and then we will smash the Arab Legion, eliminate Trans-Jordan; Syria will fall to us. We then bomb and move on and take Port Said, Alexandria and Sinai." (David Ben-Gurion, May 1948, to the General Staff. From Ben-Gurion, A Biography, by Michael Ben-Zohar, Delacorte, New York 1978)
