The Great Deceivers
Wednesday, 05 September 2007 10:57
by Dr. Paul J. Balles

Those who follow what's going on in the world know that the invasion and occupation of Iraq were based on a myth created by the neocons in America, trumpeted by George W. Bush and spread by a controlled media.

That myth, a fictionalised account of non-existent weapons of mass destruction in Saddam Hussein's non-existent arsenal, was partially created by "dual loyalists" in the American administration, who wanted to eliminate any possibility of Iraq developing a destructive force that could endanger Israel.
 
Now, a new assault orchestrated by the Zionists is moving forward on the basis of another myth: that Iran is developing a nuclear arsenal and wants to "wipe Israel off the map".


The invasion of Lebanon was part of that myth. When Hizbollah captured two Israeli soldiers on Lebanese territory, the Israelis leapt at the opportunity to use that as an excuse to attack Lebanon, provoking Hizbollah to retaliate.

The Israelis knew that if they provoked them, Hizbollah would respond in kind. While destroying Lebanon's infrastructure and murdering its civilians, the propaganda machine blathered its usual line about self-defence.

The conclusion of the deceptive argument was that Hizbollah's attacks on Israel prove that Iran wants to wipe Israel off the map.

The next part of the sham argument holds that since Iran wants to eliminate Israel, according to its president and because it insists on its right to develop a nuclear capacity and as they're lying about wanting nuclear power for peaceful purposes, Iran must be attacked.

However, Iran's president did not say that Israel (the country) should be wiped off the map. That interpretation of what Ahmedinejad said was based on a fraudulent translation of his speech.

His comment was: "Imam (Khomeini) said: This regime that is occupying Quds (Jerusalem) must be eliminated from the pages of history."

As one commentator wrote: "The perfidious thing about this translation is that the expression 'map' can only be used in one (intentional) way: a state can be removed from a map but not a regime, about which Ahmedinejad is actually speaking."

Carrying the myth forward, G W Bush said, based entirely on the misinterpretation of Ahmedinejad's speech: "The threat from Iran is, of course, their stated objective to destroy our strong ally Israel.

"That's a threat, a serious threat. It's a threat to world peace; it's a threat, in essence, to a strong alliance. I made it clear, I'll make it clear again, that we will use military might to protect our ally, Israel."

The truth was that Iran advocated a regime change in Israel.

As Anneliese Fikentscher and Andreas Neumann observed: "To commute a demand for removal of a 'regime' into a demand for removal of a state is serious deception and dangerous demagogy."

The myth that Iran would be a nuclear threat to Israel is the most ludicrous part of the Zionist propaganda campaign and the most dangerous part of the neocons' deception.

Iran could not conceivably consider a nuclear attack on Israel as long as they occupy what Ahmedinejad referred to as "our dear Palestinians".

The only conceivable danger to Israel from Iran - even if Iran had nuclear weapons - would be (1) if the Palestinians were eliminated from Palestine and (2) if Israel then attacked Iran.

If Israelis keep harping on the myth about the potential danger from Iran, knowing that the Iranians would never target Palestinians, the only logical deduction is that Israel plans to rid occupied Palestine of the Palestinians.

Israel bootlicker and lackey US Senator Joe Lieberman has already urged America to bomb Iran.

How many more lunatics will fall in line?

There are roughly 20,000 jews living in Iran and if Tehran was that negative towards Tel Aviv woulden't these Jews be expelled from the country or ever persecuted, as the mainstream media keeps falsifying on how evil Iran supposidly are?

By the way I like that picture which reminds me of when I used to spent hours playing that Comand and Conquor game on the PS1.
