Repeated Lies Call for Repeated Truth Regarding Iran.
by Tony Cartalucci
September 17, 2012 – As Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu calls “for the US to establish a firm “red line” that Iran’s nuclear program can’t cross without risking a military response,” and the West is marched ever closer to war with the Islamic Republic based on tired and repeated lies, three important points must be kept in mind.

Make no mistake however, Netanyahu is not in America to represent the Israeli people, but rather the same corporate-financier interests of Wall Street and London that created and sustain him politically.
1. The US and Israel admit in their own policy papers that Iran threatens Western hegemony, not Western security (let alone survival):
The very engineers of US-Israeli policy to subvert and destroy Iran, detailed in the 156 page “Which Path to Persia?” report out of the corporate-financier funded Brookings Institution, admit that Iran threatens not the security of Israel or the United States, but the hegemonic geopolitical order the West maintains over the Middle East.
In March 2012’s “Israel & US: Partners in International Crime,” direct quotes from the “Which Path to Persia?” report, as well as excerpts from RAND Corporation documents and else where illustrate these admissions in their entirety.
2. The US and Israel already struck first:
By using US State Department-listed foreign terror organization (#30) Mujahideen-e-Khalq (MEK) , the US and Israel have been waging years of covert war against the Iranian people.
In March 2012’s “US State Department Hands Terror-Cult US Base in Iraq,” the history of MEK as well as advocacy for supporting its terrorist activities inside of Iran is exposed through a series of Western-media reports, government testimony, and US foreign policy papers.
In February 2012’s “US Implausibly Denies Role in Israeli Terror Squads,” reports of both US officials admitting Israel’s backing of MEK terrorists to carry out assassinations inside of Iran, as well as evidence of US support for MEK are exposed.
It should be remembered that political and military subversion of Iran by the West stretches back to “Operation Ajax” in 1953, where the United States and the British overthrew the democratically elected nationalist government of Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddegh.
This violent subversion played out long before the current political order in Iran came to power. Iran has been the subject of sovereignty-violating foreign intervention for over half a century – with the West long ago drawing first blood, and continuing to do so up to present day through admitted campaigns of political, economic, and military subversion.
3. Israel’s current leaders have Wall Street-London hegemony, not Israel’s self-preservation, at heart:
Perhaps the greatest myth in regards to US-Israeli policy toward Iran is that it is driven by concerns for national security and the survival of the “Jewish State” of Israel. In reality, the overall foreign policy pursued by Israel’s government has demonstrably run contra to both the Israeli people’s survival and their own prosperity. The Israeli government’s posture toward Iran is perhaps the most dangerous and unhinged manifestation of this.
In August 2012’s “Israel’s Netanyahu Attempts to Shame UN,” it was reported that, “the Israeli government is the greatest enemy of the Israeli people,” because:
Western corporate-financier oligarchs have done more to send both
Americans and Israelis to their deaths than any combination of suicide
belt-wearing, Kalashnikov-waving “terrorists.” The “War on Terror” is indeed a fraud,
and Israel’s government has masterfully played a pivotal role –
maintaining a strategy of tension to keep its own people in perpetual
fear, while keeping their perceived enemies in perpetual and absolute
rage. When enemies are difficult to find, the government of Israel and
its corporate-financier backers upon Wall Street and in the city of
London create them, including the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas (and here), and Al Qaeda.
The result is a nation at constant war, with an inexhaustible supply of
enemies in an unending conflict giving the interests of Wall Street and
London – the very interests that created the modern state of Israel
to begin with – an excuse to remain perpetually engaged in the Middle
East with a military encampment the size of a nation at their constant
Augmenting this camp are the Israeli people themselves, just as lied to,
manipulated, and kept in constant fear as their counterparts in the
West to keep the rank and file of the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) as
full as Wall Street’s American Armed Forces or Europe’s NATO foot
The Israeli people are no less well-intentioned, talented, or full of
potential as any other people on Earth, but they are likewise just as
susceptible to being indoctrinated, misled, and terrorized into taking a
course of action in no way beneficial to themselves or their nation.
The Israeli government does not pursue a foreign or domestic policy conducive to its own self-preservation, let alone its prosperity as a nation.
Its constant warmongering, meddling geopolitically beyond its borders,
and the creation and perpetuation of its alleged “enemies” have indeed
killed more Israelis than any “terrorist.” The Israeli government and the corporate-financier interests they represent
are the Israeli people’s worst enemy. It would be wise for both the
Israeli people, and those who perceive themselves to be “enemies of
Israel” to remember that and make a clear distinction when moving
Israel should be enjoying standards of living and prosperity amongst the highest
on Earth considering Israel’s extensive human resources, but is instead facing austerity and economic hardship
as the collective talent and potential of the Israeli people are
squandered in the pursuit of armed corporate-financier hegemony instead
of peaceful progress. The same could be easily said of the United States, whose vast military supremacy and geographic location makes its narrative of “Iran, the imminent threat” all the more tenuous.

To depict Iran as an irrational enemy of Judaism, rather than simply a rational nation-state responding to and defending against the decades of provocations carried out by the West and its Israeli proxies, does not hold historical or social water. Iran hosts the largest Jewish population in the Middle East outside of Israel itself, with an ancient and proud Jewish community that has both refused to leave Iran, as well as condemn it for the benefit of Western propaganda campaigns.
PM Netanyahu’s latest propaganda tour of the US is nothing less than a blatant conspiracy against world peace – the premeditated fabrication of a war that puts at risk hundreds of millions of people and the survival of both Israel and Iran itself. Netanyahu and his corporate-financier compatriots hope that fear, terror, and ignorance prevail long before all the myths, lies, and propaganda wear off and the populations of the respective nations involved, Iran, America, and Israel, come to their senses and identify their real enemy – the corporate-financier elite who have driven half a century of conflict with the Iranian people.
When these myths wear off, it will not be wars and the pursuit of hegemony that guide the hands of each nation’s respective people, but a drive to both free themselves from the monopolies of these corporate-financier interests, and the pursuit of progress on their own terms, for their own benefit rather than for a manipulative elite.
