Why Iran needs a nuclear deterrent against israel

Source

Israel is the only entity in the Middle East which posses nuclear weapons and has not only invaded all its neighbors during the last six decades but has also threatened several European capital cities.

Israel, in the past, had made sure that none of country in the region gain nuclear capability. In 1981, it bombed Osirak nuclear reactor under construction in Iraq – and in 2007 in Syria killing 10 North Korean scientists.

Amos Yadlin, one of the pilot who bombed Iraqi reactor compound, wrote an Op-Ed at the Jew York times (March 1, 2012) in which he gloated: ”

After the Osirak attack and the destruction of the Syrian reactor in 2007, the Iraqi and Syrian nuclear programs were never fully resumed. This could be the outcome in Iran, too, if military action is followed by tough sanctions, stricter international inspections and an embargo on the sale of nuclear components to Tehran.

In 2013, Shimon Peres, former president of Zionist entity, and the Father of Jewish Nukes clarified why Israel need nuclear and chemical WMDs. “There is a reason that pushes you to own nuclear power, for me it is a tool that leads to peace not to carry out attacks.” However, Netanyahu and his western poodles don’t want Iran to have the same tool to help Israel bring peace in the region.

Zionist entity’s foster parents (the US, UK, and Soviet Russia) have never dared to attack a foreign country with nuclear bombs or having the capability to produce a nuclear bomb.

Benjamin Netanyahu had been telling us since the 1990s that Iran is acquiring nuclear capability to wipe Israel off the map. But M. Ozdamar at the Bournemouth Hebrew Congregation claimed on May 6, 2013 that Iran is not acquiring the nuclear bomb to flatten the Zionist entity – but to carry jihad against Sunni Muslim majority.

One thing is for certain; they are not developing a nuclear capability so that they can wipe Israel off the map. The real reason Iran feels it needs to have a nuclear capability is so that they can prepare themselves for the Islamic wars. There are 1.5 billion Muslims in the world, the vast majority of which are Sunnis. Iran is the leader of the Shia minority, which represents around 7% of the world’s Muslims, most of whom live in Iran, Iraq and the surrounding areas. Throughout  history there has been no love lost between Sunnis and the Shia. The Sunnis, led by Saudi Arabia and other regional powers, see the Shia as heretics and are deeply suspicious of the Iranian regime exporting their brand of religious fanaticism throughout the Muslim world. That is why we do not see Pakistan, a Sunni Muslim state, helping Iran to acquire the bomb; instead, the Iranians have to cooperate with the rogue regime in North Korea in order to achieve their aims,” Ozdamar said.

And people think Netanyahu is the only serial liar among the anti-Muslim Zionist Jews!

Abdel Bari Atwan has posted an advice for North Korea, entitled, Arab Lessons for North Korea.

As an Arab and Muslim, I felt both insulted and pained when reading commentaries in the Israeli press warning the US against recklessly attacking North Korea. Pundits argued that the DPRK was not some two-bit Arab country like Syria which could be bombed at any time with impunity, but a serious adversary that possesses serious means of retaliation, involving nuclear warheads and long-range missiles,” Atwan said.

It is no coincidence that all the Arab countries that have been subjected to US-led aggression in recent years had earlier yielded to American-authored UN demands to be disarmed of ‘weapons of mass destruction,’ especially chemical munitions, and abandon any thought of acquiring a nuclear deterrent. But this compliance did not ensure their safety. They were subsequently attacked or invaded or both. Once the US was reassured that they did not possess powerful weapons with which to defend themselves and inflict serous casualties on any invading forces, the aggression and bombing would begin,” added Atwan.

I’m glad Pakistan learned the lesson from naïve Arabs and joined world’s nuclear club in 1974.

 

INTERPOL: four Israelis Arrested for Trafficking Human organs in Bulgaria, a Rabbi among suspects

A Rabbi among suspects; traffickers would approach poor Bulgarians and offer to buy a kidney for transplant in Turkey.

According to INTERPOL’s spokesperson , LCol. Asan Kasingye, four people were arrested today in Sofia on suspicion of organ trafficking, one of whom is a Jewish clergyman already standing trial for similar offenses in the past.

The four were arrested today at the end of a month-long undercover investigation. Ziss, a Rabbi, was extradited from Bulgaria to Israel in 2009 on similar suspicions.

“The four men are suspected of running a complete trafficking operation: locating people in Sofia willing to sell a kidney, locating patients willing and able to pay for one and then arranging the transplant. Bulgarian Police said the traffickers would approach poor people who were in debt and propose that they sell a kidney for transplant,”Kasingye told  Bulgarian News Agency (БТА ).

According to Bulgarian officials the actual transplants were performed in a Turkish hospital, with the donors posing as relatives of the patient. Meanwhile the Bulgarian National Transplant Center stressed that it was not involved in any of the transactions and that no illegal transplants were performed in Bulgaria.

Selling organs is illegal everywhere in the world except Saudi Arabia. But Israel is considered a major player in the organ trafficking business, and the number of Israelis who have sold kidneys via traffickers is estimated at between 10,000 and 20,000.

Although recipients pay hundreds of thousands of shekels for the kidney, the donor, according to various reports, gets only between 60,000 and 100,000 shekels ($160,000-$260,000). The rest of the fee goes to the head of the trafficking ring, the doctor overseeing the transplant, the lawyer who prepares the false affidavits, and expenses such as hospital and hotel fees.

One reason Israel is considered fertile ground for organ traffickers is that postmortem organ donation rates are among the lowest in the Western world, mainly for religious reasons.

After aiding ISIS in Syria, israel now thinks It can legally steal the Golan

Israel Makes It Official: The Destruction of Syria Will Legitimize Israeli Land Grabs

Israel argues that there is no Syria to ‘negotiate with’ — which means the occupation of the Golan is now ‘legitimate’

Israel’s deputy minister for diplomacy Michael Oren has announced that ‘there is no Syria to negotiate with’, which means that Israel’s illegal occupation of the Golan should be recognized by the international community. 

Capitalizing on the chaos and destruction of a six-year war to push for international recognition of occupied land? That’s not very neighborly.

According to Oren, “Without Israel there [in the Golan], the region would be jeopardized. ISIS would be on the Kinneret.”

Perhaps this is the reason why Israel has repeatedly targeted the Syrian Army and its allies fighting Islamic State in Syria, instead of bombing ISIS?

<!–

As Al Masdar News reported on Sunday, the Israeli Air Force carried out its second attack against Syrian forces this month, targeting forces stationed in the Golan:

Why the Israeli military chooses to target the only force in southern Syria that is fighting both Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State (ISIL) is often debated by all parties in this six year long conflict.

However, to the Syrian government, Israel’s actions are clear; they are providing air support to the groups fighting the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies, such as Hezbollah and Harakat Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary).

The cynicism at play here is truly spectacular.

Recall that earlier this month Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu argued that Israel needs buffer zones on Syrian territory to protect the Israeli-occupied Golan.

In other words: Israel wants the international community to recognize the occupation, and ‘protect’ it.

The plan, from the very beginning, was to chop up Syria. The Turks and Americans are now squabbling over Northern Syria, while Israel is making moves to ‘legitimize’ its occupation — and create new occupied zones

Former israeli Defense Minister Confirms israeli Collaboration With ISIS In Syria

שר הביטחון לשעבר יעלון מאשר לראשונה את קיומו של ערוץ תקשורת בין ישראל ודאעש בסוריה

In the midst of complaining about the Islamist threat to Israel and the world, Bibi Netanyahu conveniently forgets that his own country enjoys a tacit alliance with ISIS in Syria.  It is an alliance of convenience to be sure and one that’s not boasted about by either party.  But is not terribly different from one than Israel enjoys with its other Muslim allies like Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States.

Bogie Yaalon served as defence minister in the current government till he had a falling out with Netanyahu.  Now Yaalon plans to form his own party and run against his former boss.  Unfortunately for him, he’s not polling well and doesn’t appear to be much of a political threat.

So Yaalon enjoys the position of having little to lose.  He can speak more candidly than the average politician.  In this context, he spoke at length on security matters at a public event in Afula.  There is always much that I disagree with whenever I read Yaalon’s views.  For example, while warning about the danger of favoring too heavily one side over the other, he essentially justifies Israel’s interventionist approach, which largely has favored Assad’s opponents.  Nor do I like his choice of political allies–from Pam Geller to Meir Kahane’s grandson.

But he did reveal how closely tied Israel is to ISIS in Syria. I’ve documented, along with other journalists, Israeli collaboration with al-Nusra, an affiliate of al-Qaeda.  But no Israeli till now has admitted it has forged an alliance with ISIS as well.  Below Yaalon implicitly confirms this below:

…Within Syria there are many factions: the regime, Iran, the Russians, and even al-Qaeda and ISIS.  In such circumstances, one must develop a responsible, carefully-balanced policy by which you protect your own interests on the one hand, and on the other hand you don’t intervene.  Because if Israel does intervene on behalf of one side, it will serve the interests of the other; which is why we’ve established red lines.  Anyone who violates our sovereignty will immediately feel the full weight of our power.  On most occasions, firing comes from regions under the control of the regime.  But once the firing came from ISIS positions–and it immediately apologized.

The attack he refers to was never reported in Israeli media.  Either the information was placed under gag order or under military censorship.  It was suppressed most certainly because both the firing by an Israeli Islamist ally on Israeli territory and ISIS’ apology would embarrass both Israel and the Islamists.

Keep in mind, this is the same ISIS which beheaded a Jewish-American who’d lived in Israel: Steven Sotloff.  The same ISIS which raped Yazidi women and threw gay men off buildings.  The same ISIS which has rampaged through the Middle East sowing havoc and rivers of blood wherever it goes.  The same ISIS which Netanyahu routinely excoriates as being the root of all evil in the world.  Like here, for example:

“Iran and the Islamic State want to destroy us, and a hatred for Jews is being directed towards the Jewish state today,” said Netanyahu, adding, “those who threaten to destroy us risk being destroyed themselves.”

It’s common knowledge that Israeli foreign policy going back to the days of Ben Gurion has been exceedingly opportunistic and amoral.  So I suppose one shouldn’t be surprised at this new development.  But still it does momentarily take one’s breath away to contemplate just how sleazy Israel’s motives and choices can often be.

Wave of settler (Jewish terrorist) violence hits Palestinian villages in West Bank

Wave of settler violence hits Palestinian villages in West Bank

Settlers from the radical Yitzhar settlement attack Palestinians in Urif and Huwwara, just one day after Israeli activists were assaulted by masked settlers in the Jordan Valley.

Dozens of Jewish settlers assaulted Palestinians in two separate West Bank villages on Saturday, just one day after settlers attacked and injured left-wing Israelis in the Jordan Valley.

Israelis from the radical Yitzhar settlement carried out two waves of attacks on the village of Urif, near Nablus. Four Palestinians were injured in the initial assault, and although residents of the village alerted Israeli security forces about the violence, the soldiers and police who arrived on the scene simply ordered the attackers away and did not arrest anyone.

Shortly after, an even bigger group of settlers returned to Urif and started attacking again. A building in the village was damaged and car windshields smashed. This time round, the army entered the village, only to fire rubber bullets at Palestinians who were trying to drive the settlers back by throwing stones at them. According to witnesses, the settlers then started uprooting olive trees, even starting a fire.

A few hours later, Israelis from Yitzhar set out for a further round of violence, this time in the village of Huwwara, also close to Nablus. They threw stones, smashed windows and attacked Palestinians, injuring three — including a woman who received a head wound. According to B’Tselem, her injury was serious, although not life-threatening.

Zacharia Sadeh, of Rabbis for Human Rights, told Local Call that the settlers who attacked Huwwara passed an IDF outpost on their way to the village.

“They should have reported the settlers heading down [to the village], and they could have prevented three people from being hurt,” he said. “The security forces make no effort to stop these attacks on Palestinians, and do nothing to protect the lives of Palestinians.”

On Friday, a group of Israeli activists with Ta’ayush were attacked by masked settlers from the Baladim outpost, also known for its extremism. The activists, who were in the Jordan Valley in order to assist Palestinian shepherds who were under threat of violence from the settlers, were attacked with stones and clubs, leaving five injured.

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman commented on the violence on Sunday, but only condemned the fact that an Israeli army officer had been attacked by settlers, and ignored the assault on Palestinians. Rabbis for Human Rights, responding to Liberman’s statement, said that while “attacking an IDF officer is indeed serious,” failing to mention the heart of the matter — violence against dozens of Palestinians — “sends the implicit message that attacking Palestinians isn’t no big deal provided [Israeli] security forces aren’t assaulted at the same time.”

Indeed, as is customary in the face of settler violence, the Israeli forces who arrived on the scene felt no obligation to open fire on the Israeli stone throwers, had apparently left their tear gas and rubber-coated steel bullets at home, and suddenly knew how to restrain themselves.

The fact that settlers are allowed to continue their attacks undisturbed reveals, over and over, the shared interests of the landlords of the West Bank’s hilltops, and the armed forces who serve them.

Palestine: Settler attack showcases impunity of Jewish extremists

Settler attack showcases impunity of Jewish extremists

In all my years as of activism, I have never seen or experienced such hatred as I did last Friday, when masked settlers attacked a group of Ta’ayush volunteers with clubs and stones.

By Guy Hircefeld

It’s been almost 10 years since I became involved in activism, much of it with Ta’ayush. I very quickly understood that my country is governed by a group of messianic, extreme and violent people whose aim is the establishment of a Jewish state — and that the entire “democratic” system is at their service, no questions asked.

Ta’ayush activists have, over the years, been detained, arrested and harassed. We’ve suffered from varying levels of violence. I thought I’d seen it all in terms of the collaboration between the “democratic” establishment and the messianic radical right, until last Friday, when we were attacked by a group of Jewish terrorists from the Baladim outpost.

Palestinian shepherds living in the al-Auja village have taken their herds to graze on the nearby hill for decades. But physical violence and theft of their sheep began almost immediately after the re-establishment around a year ago of the Baladim outpost, next to the Kochav HaShachar settlement. The Israeli police did nothing in response to complaints submitted by Palestinians, while the shepherds were forced to stop taking their herds to graze on the hill.

So the shepherds from al-Auja approached Ta’ayush to see if we could accompany them when they took their cattle out. We had already been in contact with the police to inform them we’d be in the al-Auja area that Friday to escort Palestinian shepherds, because there was no legal reason that they shouldn’t be able to take their herds out to graze. In response, a member of the security forces visited the village to tell the families they shouldn’t work with Ta’ayush. (It’s worth pointing out that if the police and army did their job, there’d be no need for us to accompany Palestinian farmers and shepherds in the West Bank.)

Nonetheless, we took our first trip out with the al-Auja residents two Fridays ago. After we’d been out for a while, we realized at that we were being watched by seven settlers from the Baladim outpost. We notified the police, telling them we feared there would be violence and asking them to come to the area.

About an hour later we spotted 15 masked Jews armed with clubs running towards us. We again contacted the police and stood facing the settlers, who were around 200 meters away. Half an hour later, we heard a shout of “police!” coming from the outpost, and the gang scattered. What happened next is already well-known — the settlers threw stones at the soldiers who had arrived on the scene.

Government cooperation with the attackers

The same sequence repeated itself last Friday, except that this time the settlers — again around 15 of them, masked and armed with clubs and stones — charged at us, yelling, and started attacking us with their weapons. In all my years as an activist I have never seen or experienced such crazed hatred. And to think — these people come from an outpost of the Kochav HaShachar settlement, which is considered mainstream, and is the former home of Israel’s police commissioner, Roni Alsheikh.

It could have ended far worse than it did. No one arrested the attackers. Several activists were injured in the assault, and we called an ambulance before starting to climb back down the hill. One activist needed stitches in his head. Another had a broken hand from trying to protect the head of the former. A third needed stitches in his hand, and several others were injured as well.

But the saga of the police’s failure to intervene didn’t end there. At one point a police officer announced to the injured activists, who didn’t want to immediately go and complain at the police station, that they were being detained. The police eventually backed off, but demanded that we go and submit a complaint straightaway, claiming that they’d made arrests. In spite of the injuries, and despite medics on the scene recommending that the wounded receive treatment before anything else, we all went to the police station.

When we got there we discovered — wonder of wonders — that no one there had any idea what we were talking about. We left without filing a complaint.

There’s nothing I can say about the conduct of the Israeli security forces. They knew what was happening and did nothing, or perhaps were under instructions not to do anything. As for what happens next, we will go back next week, and the week after, and the week after that, until the police do their job and the shepherds can take their cattle out to graze in peace.

This battle is an important part of the struggle over the character of this country, and it’s one we need help with from all who believe in non-violent struggle. The settlers from the Baladim outpost are linked to other acts of violence, vandalism and arson. These are the people who live by and believe in the King’s Torah. It’s regrettable that this weekend the state chose to support and cooperate with this terror group.

A terrorist state, israel, helping a terrorist entity, ISIL, Al-Qaeda

With ISIL, Al-Qaeda on its border, Israel chooses to attack the Syrian Army

BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:45 P.M.) – The Israeli Air Force carried out its second attack against the Syrian government forces this month, yesterday, striking a group of Golan Regiment fighters that were positioned in the Golan Heights.

Why the Israeli military chooses to target the only force in southern Syria that is fighting both Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State (ISIL) is often debated by all parties in this six year long conflict.

However, to the Syrian government, Israel’s actions are clear; they are providing air support to the groups fighting the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies, such as Hezbollah and Harakat Nujaba (Iraqi paramilitary).

Israeli officials have often spoken about the greater threat Hezbollah poses to their country than terrorist groups like the Islamic State and Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham (Syrian Al-Qaeda affiliate); this is meant to justify their monthly attacks on the Syrian government forces in western Syria.

Israel’s actions have even led Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad to label the Israeli Air Force as “Al-Qaeda’s Air Force,” something the Knesset has yet to contest.

This latest attack by Israel once again begs the question “why is it necessary to target the Syrian military as they prepare to attack Al-Qaeda?”

Perhaps, the thought of the Syrian government stabilizing the Golan Heights is not aligned with the Israeli regime’s contingency to prolong this war and keep Hezbollah busy in another theater of battle…

As the Syrian Arab Army moves forward with their Golan Heights offensive in the coming weeks, they are expecting more attacks from the Israeli military; especially, as they push closer to the occupied areas.
