Iran does not want to Nuke Israel

Those who think Iran would nuke Israel are easily swayed by American propaganda. I would still support Israel destroying the Iranian nuclear reactor though, but not this pandering whining nonsense of Netanyahu constantly crying to the West to “do something”.

RT just interviewed Mohammad Jahad Zarif, Iran’s Foreign Minister, on this topic. To preempt, no, I don’t agree with everything Zarif says in this article. Just making a point that the State-controlled US main stream media (state licenses all the airwaves) emphasizes what it wants and ignores what it doesn’t. There will be zero, absolutely zero, American media outlets reporting these comments. And people therefore assume, from what they read in the state-controlled media in America, that Iran for whatever reason wants to nuke everything and reinstate the 13th Imam and other warmongering stupidity.

If Bibi wants to take out the Iranian nuclear program, then shut up and do it and take the consequences. Stop the warmongering US-pandering BS.

These comments, however, I completely agree with. Thank you Zarif for your sanity, at least as reflected in these remarks:

“It is truly, truly regrettable that bigotry gets to the point of making allegations against an entire nation which has saved Jews three times in its history: Once during that time of a prime minister who was trying to kill the Jews, and the king saved the Jews; again during the time of Cyrus the Great, where he saved the Jews from Babylon, and during the Second World War, where Iran saved the Jews,” he said.

“We’re not about the annihilation of Jews,” Zarif stressed, reminding the channel that 20,000 Jews reside in Iran “in peace” and even have their own representative in parliament.

“We have a history of tolerance and cooperation and living together in coexistence with our own Jewish people, and with Jews everywhere in the world. If people want to espouse fear mongering to fan such hysteria in the world, that’s to their detriment,” Zarif said.

 

Iran trading in gold to avert sanctions

From Arutz Sheva:

Report: Iran Skirting Sanctions by Trading in Gold

The Iranian regime has found a way to circumvent the economic sanctions imposed by the West and delay the crash of the local economy. It is engaging in illegal (editor’s note: FAH!) trading in gold, according to a Tuesday morning report in the British newspaper the Times.

The report says that after the United States made it clear it would treat any breach of the sanctions on Iran as money laundering, Iran began to demand gold in exchange for oil. The Islamic Republic is doing so through a large network of private front companies.

How dare the United States tell Iran what to do? If they want to build a nuclear weapon, power to them. Israel will take care of it if we so choose. Franklin D. Roosevelt, that horrendous thief, made trading in gold illegal for all US citizens back in 1933 and simply confiscated all gold belonging to private people and devalued it. Now Obama wants to make it illegal for Iranians too.

America, that imperialist power, also makes it illegal for anyone in the world to buy oil with anything but dollars, by threat of force. Then America takes that power and buys its citizens welfare. What a sick bully country. That is the only thing keeping the dollar from turning into toilet paper – the fact that the world must use it to buy oil. The real story here is that the petrodollar is slipping, because Iran is now trading oil for gold. Good for them. The dollar just got another kick in the gut.

Let it fall.

Why most Ron Paul supporters are wrong about Iran, and why I don’t care

I visit Lewrockwell.com several times a week. I read the economic articles and some of the Ron Paul updates there. The site published one of my articles here that was read by about 100,000 people so I appreciate it, and he and his staff of course do great work, especially with founding the Mises institute in the 80’s.

The problem though with diehard Ron Paul people like Lew is that they have blindspots. Just like Zionist Jews and those who are freaked out by Jihad have blindspots regarding Paul’s foreign policy and cannot possibly entertain the notion that maybe 9/11 was actually partly America’s own fault, Paulians like Rockwell cannot possibly entertain the notion that maybe Iran actually does want to annihilate Israel.

If I had just stumbled onto Lewrockwell.com without being lured into the whole Paul universe and community first with his economic, libertarian message, I would have ran out of that website screaming and calling the ADL. Every day there is another article about how peaceful Iran is and how they would never hurt a fly and whoever believes otherwise is buying propaganda. Read that without understanding the message of liberty and you’re a Jew with the cultural history of Persians trying to annihilate you in the past (read the Book of Esther), you would be instantly repulsed. But when I read it, it only annoys me mildly. Less and less every day.

Two days ago I was listening to the Lew Rockwell show, one of his podcasts, and he was interviewing Bob Wenzel. Lew said something like “We don’t want Iran or Israel to attack each other, but of course Israel is the one that’s threatening and Iran is just being peaceful.”

That turned up the dial of annoyingness from mildly to moderately, and I am a Jewish ultra nationalist. Other Jews would have been horrified by that comment. Why can I stomach these and keep admiring Rockwell when I have what we would call a “nuclear disagreement”?

It has to do with liberty and independence. When people are independent and free, then other people don’t resent them for their problems. While Lew is obviously wrong about Iran being peaceful and he chooses to ignore statement after statement to the absolute contrary (most recently Khamenei saying that Iran must attack Israel by 2014 and killing Jews is a Muslim religious duty) much like an Obama socialist ignores economic reality, he is blind about this not because he hates Jews, but he hates fighting other people’s wars. He just doesn’t want anything to do with it, and Israel has much more influence in America than Iran does, so he blames Israel.

Essentially, if we are to reword what Lew is saying when he says that Iran is peaceful and Israel is the aggressor, we can say that when it comes to America being involved in the whole Iran Israel fight, Israel is much more responsible for bringing America directly into the picture than Iran is. This is what he hates, and because Israel is dragging America into the Iranian mess, he pins Israel as the aggressor. In that way, he’s right.

The reason his statements don’t bother me all that much are that even though he’s wrong, I know full well that he doesn’t hate or love Israel. He really just doesn’t care and doesn’t want anything to do with it or my problems. And I don’t WANT him to care or have anything to do with it either, so Lew and I basically agree. I want to be independent, I don’t want any charity, and I want to take care of my own problems in Israel.

If everyone took care of their own issues, then there’d be a lot less calls to the ADL and the malinvestment that goes into keeping them running will be redirected to something that actually matters instead of something that just makes people resentful of Jews whining about Anti Semitism all the time.

And if you want to make the claim that Iran is the world’s problem and not the Jews’ problem, I’d say, again, stop trying to bring the world into Jewish issues. It really makes them resent us, and if Lew doesn’t hate Jews now, he really WILL if this drags America into yet another war that will destroy his country.

Man up, be a Jew, let’s take out the trash and get some respect. I didn’t get my independence back after 2,000 years to freak out and cry to the world about some Persians trying to kill me. I got my independence back after 2,000 years so I can take care of them myself.

Iran should be on her knees thanking Israel for her existence

I got this from a friend of mine named Aviv who’s working with me on Moshe Feiglin’s campaign. I read it and I can’t believe I never thought of it before. Translated from Aviv’s Hebrew:

I had an interesting thought. The Iran-Iraq War began in 1980 and lasted for almost a decade. In 1981, one year into the Iran-Iraq War, Israel blew up the Iraqi nuclear reactor and was met with harsh condemnation from the entire world. It’s reasonable to assume that if not for Israel’s attack, Iraq would have had nuclear weapons that would have surely been used first and foremost against its bitter enemy – Iran. It follows, then, that without even intending to, Israel saved Iran from a nuclear holocaust at the hands of Sadaam Hussein. And what do we get in return? An Iranian nuclear program against us.

Why does no Israeli leader mention this fact? Instead of the poor little kid who doesn’t want to get beat up and tries to convince the world that the neighborhood bully is a dangerous threat and they need to take care of it approach – we have to come at Iran with an offensive approach with the tone of – What are you bitching about? Say thank you that you’re even breathing right now. We run this part of the world, and without us you’d have been vaporized by Sadaam’s nukes.

Imagine that after Ahmadinejad’s speech at the UN, our Prime Minister gets up and instead of repating the defensive mantra “We went through the holocaust, and there must not be a second one” – he looks at the Iranian midget in the eye and tells him – you little pisher – you’re embarrassing yourself. It’s only thanks to me that you’re even alive right now, and you dare threaten me? Sit down and be quiet. We are the masters of the Middle East, and if you dare raise your head, you’ll take a good beating.

May we soon merit bold and confident leadership – confident in itself and God.

In case any of you have any doubts, that leader is Moshe Feiglin. And you know what Ron Paul has to do with this?

NOTHING. Just like it should be.

Zionists: What if Ron Paul is Right about Iran?

I love Israel. I love my country, and the land that God gave my family. I would fight and die for this place. I live here. I am not a peace activist. Nor am I a warmonger. I don’t believe in peace treaties with anyone whatsoever, nor do I believe in going to war under shaky pretenses.

I’m 28. Much of my high school and college career occurred during the end of Oslo and Arafat and Barak’s meeting at Camp David, and the subsequent outbreak of the brutal and bloody 2nd Intifadah murder spree. Watching every single suicide bomb on the news right after it happened, as a high school kid, drove me mad with rage against Islam and “terrorists” and Arabs. I hated them for their method of murder and killing my Jewish family. It is hard for me to describe the dehumanizing emotions I had.

The emotions were so strong that any attempt to attach “motives” to “terrorist” actions made me react impulsively and with disgust at whoever suggested that terrorists even had “motives”. I just wanted them dead and out of my country. These are classic “neocon” feelings. We’re good, they’re evil, that’s it, end of story, if you even try to explain anything you’re getting us all killed.

Now, if you identify with these feelings, let me ask you a few questions. Try to clear your head and see things from above for a second.

Were any of America’s wars since World War II necessary? What did any of them accomplish? How many people did they kill? Did America have to go into Vietnam? Why? Did they have to go into Korea? Why? Did they have to go into Iraq? Why? Did they have to prop up the House of Saud in Saudi Arabia? What about Egypt? Was involvement there necessary? Did we really have to overthrow the Iranian government in 1953 in order to install the Shah?

WHY? Why did America have to do that?

What is the point of all of this? What has it accomplished? What would the world look like today if none of this ever happened? Would September 11th have happened? Would there be a “War on Terror?”

What the hell IS the “War on Terror”? Who is “Terror”? How does the war end?

The answer to this is actually pretty simple. The standard reaction is “America did all this for her security.”

I used to believe that. But I no longer do. America is not secure. She is a nation teetering on the biggest bankruptcy in world history, and running on the fumes of borrowed Chinese money. Her citizens are poorer and more dependent on handouts that they get from a government running on borrowed Chinese money.

In the last debate on December 15, every Republican presidential candidate talked about how they were going to A) Cut the budget and B) Massively expand the military. None of them realized the apparent contradiction here. Why? Because there is no substance to any of these war hungry power driven men with no souls. They fight not because they believe in something. They fight because it gives them power. Saying they’ll cut the budget will give them power. Saying they’ll massively expand the air force and the “modernize” the navy while at the same time dealing with a $15 trillion debt, this is just mad. It’s simply mad.

I wonder now if any of them are even conscious of the words that are coming out of their pandering mouths. These smiling, grinning, nonsensical people convinced that America has to put a no fly zone over Syria now and other such EXPENSIVE nonsense that CHINA  is running out of money to FUND.

Ron Paul’s strongest point in the debate was when he asked Mitt Romney, the guy talking about cutting the budget while  massively expanding the air force, the following question:

“How are we going to do that? We don’t have any MONEY!”

For those who can see the humanity in Ron Paul, who aren’t brainwashed by fearmongerers like Bachmann who say that if he becomes president Iran will nuke the US, you could read the horror in Paul’s face. “How am I on the stage with such…people? Is there anyone behind any of these shiny veneers? Do they even realize they are not making ANY SENSE?”

Every candidate, including Obama, is drunk on power. They go to war not for security, but because, as president of the most powerful country in the world, they can’t resist playing with their toy armed forces. And they CAN’T RESIST coming over here, to Israel, and telling us exactly how to make peace with our neighbors.

What if Ron Paul is right? What if September 11 really did happen because America simply can’t mind her own business? What if none of these undeclared wars ever had to happen, and 2 million vietnamese and Iraqis were still alive today?

If you ponder that question seriously, and it flicks a light on in your head and you recognize the possibility of it for even a fraction of a second, you can do one of two things:

1) Shut that recognition down immediately and go back to thinking America has no blame in any of this

2) Allow yourself to ponder further, ultimately culminating in a sudden rush of remorse that millions had to die for this pointless nonsense and you just didn’t realize it.

Whether it’s War Making or Peace Making, America feels they have to be in it all. What if Ron Paul is right? Imagine if he were president. Would he have forced Arafat and Barak to sit down and pretend to be friends at a meeting that was destined to explode in a murderous intifadah? Would he, like Clinton, pressure Israel to invite Arafat back into Israel to “make peace” with him? Would the second Intifadah have ever broken out? Would the first one? What if America simply left us alone to handle our own issues? Would any of the death and murder that drove me into a rage in high school ever have happened?

I remember when Obama ran and said something about talking to Iran. I thought it was a really really bad idea because I was a neocon back then. But I also never trusted Obama for a second and knew he was just saying this to get power. I knew he was just as fake as the rest of them and I didn’t believe in his “change” nonsense. I saw right through it. There was no human being there. Just a political veneer.

But Ron Paul is a real person. When he speaks to you at a debate, it’s a bona fide human being talking there. Imagine if we had one of those in the White House. Do you think the Ayatollah would chill out just a bit? We could back off each other, get some perspective? The White House could back the heck off of me in Israel and leave me alone? And if we feel like Iran is a threat over here, to let us deal with it how we want to deal with it without calling him up and asking permission like a lapdog?

What the heck does Iran have to do with America? Are they going to cross the Atlantic in the aircraft carrier that they don’t have and nuke Manhattan? Are they going to use their intercontinental ballistic missiles they don’t have and bomb Washington DC?

No. What America has to do with Iran is this: America thinks it runs the world. And there’s an annoying brat in Persia that America thinks has to be put in line. But it’s really none of America’s business. Leave Iran alone. All America is doing by threatening Iran is endangering me in Israel. Let us deal with it if we have to, but stay in your own hemisphere.

Don’t you think the world would be a much less scary place if there was a HUMAN BEING in the oval office?

What if Ron Paul is right?

What if?

Iran is Israel’s problem, NOT America’s

We’ve got to stop acting like children. One of the consequences of having your own country, despite the fact of not having one for 2 millennia, is that we have to stop whining to the world about people who threaten us. It sounds bad, it looks bad, and it makes the world resent us. Simply said, Israel has to stop whining to the world that the Persians want to kill us, and start to stand up for herself and the Jewish people proudly, strongly, and without looking over her shoulder.

I understand the Foreign Ministry’s strategy of trying to guilt and twist the world’s arm into thinking that Iran is a threat to the West. But it just makes the world tired and annoyed at the Jewish people, and it really makes the world resent us.

Man up Jews! If some dictator threatens your existence, fight back! It would be one thing if we were stuck somewhere in the Roman Empire with no army, but we’re pretty self-sufficient now. Standing up for ourselves and taking out our own garbage would do more for this nation than crying about Iran’s nuclear program to the rest of the world that is tired of us anyway for trying to focus their attention on a third world country while they’re about to explode in a chaotic Keynesian economic meltdown.

This also means we have to stop whining when Obama and Sarkozy call Netanyahu a liar. Who really cares? Man up and stop accusing everyone of anti Semitism just because they think a politician is a liar.

Europe and the US have enough problems to worry about without taking on yet another war they can’t afford.

If we take care of this ourselves, we’ll take a hit, but we’ll be better off for it. Psychologically, we’ll be a healthier, stronger nation.

So, Netanyahu, if you want to go down in Jewish history along with Begin for saving the Jewish People, take the Book of Esther to heart:

Bibi – If you don’t stand up for us now, right now, then salvation will rise for the Jews from a different place, but you and your father’s house will be forgotten. And who knows if Iran isn’t the very reason you came to the throne?

The clock is ticking, Benjamin Netanyahu. If you don’t answer the call, the next prime minister will. I’m not worried for the Jews. But I’d like you to have your place in the sun, if only because that’s what you want for yourself.
