REALLY, MR. NETANYAHU?

Today, on the anniversary of 911, Israel's Prime Minister, Mr. Netanyahu, castigated our government for not setting "red lines" for taking military action against Iran for disobeying Israel's order to that country to cease developing nuclear technology, just in case Iran might want nuclear weapons in the future as protection against Israel's undocumented nuclear arsenal. It doesn't help that both the US and Israel have been threatening to bomb Iran if it doesn't comply.

"The world tells Israel 'wait, there's still time'. And I say, 'Wait for what? Wait until when?' Those in the international community who refuse to put red lines before Iran don't have a moral right to place a red light before Israel," Netanyahu said during a press conference with Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov."

The timing of Netanyahu's comments, coinciding with our upcoming elections, is no coincidence. The Israeli Prime Minister knows that it is impossible for any candidate in our country to be elected without the backing of AIPAC and those who support the Zionist agenda. Is it coincidental that President Obama will be unable to meet with Mr. Netanyahu on his next visit? I hope not.

From Noam Chomsky, Common Dreams, http://www.commondreams.org/view/2012/09/04-6 :

"Like its patron [the US], Israel resorts to violence at will. It persists in illegal settlement in occupied territory, some annexed, all in brazen defiance of international law and the U.N. Security Council. It has repeatedly carried out brutal attacks against Lebanon and the imprisoned people of Gaza, killing tens of thousands without credible pretext.


Thirty years ago Israel destroyed an Iraqi nuclear reactor, an act that has recently been praised, avoiding the strong evidence, even from U.S. intelligence, that the bombing did not end Saddam Hussein’s nuclear weapons program but rather initiated it. Bombing of Iran might have the same effect.


Iran too has carried out aggression – but during the past several hundred years, only under the U.S.-backed regime of the shah, when it conquered Arab islands in the Persian Gulf.

Iran engaged in nuclear development programs under the shah, with the strong support of official Washington. The Iranian government is brutal and repressive, as are Washington’s allies in the region. The most important ally, Saudi Arabia, is the most extreme Islamic fundamentalist regime, and spends enormous funds spreading its radical Wahhabist doctrines elsewhere. The gulf dictatorships, also favored U.S. allies, have harshly repressed any popular effort to join the Arab Spring.


The Nonaligned Movement – the governments of most of the world’s population – is now meeting in Teheran. The group has vigorously endorsed Iran’s right to enrich uranium, and some members – India, for example – adhere to the harsh U.S. sanctions program only partially and reluctantly.


The NAM delegates doubtless recognize the threat that dominates discussion in the West, lucidly articulated by Gen. Lee Butler, former head of the U.S. Strategic Command: “It is dangerous in the extreme that in the cauldron of animosities that we call the Middle East,” one nation should arm itself with nuclear weapons, which “inspires other nations to do so.”


Butler is not referring to Iran, but to Israel, which is regarded in the Arab countries and in Europe as posing the greatest threat to peace In the Arab world, the United States is ranked second as a threat, while Iran, though disliked, is far less feared. Indeed in many polls majorities hold that the region would be more secure if Iran had nuclear weapons to balance the threats they perceive.


If Iran is indeed moving toward nuclear-weapons capability – this is still unknown to U.S. intelligence – that may be because it is “inspired to do so” by the U.S.-Israeli threats, regularly issued in explicit violation of the U.N. Charter.
Why then is Iran the greatest threat to world peace, as seen in official Western discourse? The primary reason is acknowledged by U.S. military and intelligence and their Israeli counterparts: Iran might deter the resort to force by the United States and Israel.


Furthermore Iran must be punished for its “successful defiance,” which was Washington’s charge against Cuba half a century ago, and still the driving force for the U.S. assault against Cuba that continues despite international condemnation."

This is just another disturbing example of how Israeli political influence and power has invaded our government in an effort to dictate the foreign policy decisions of our country. Would we tolerate this from any other foreign country? I don't think so. The last thing the world, or America, needs right now is another dose of 'Shock and Awe'.
