Iran’s groundbreaking nuclear deal with the six world powers thwarted Israel’s efforts to bag money by brandishing fabricated threats over Iran’s peaceful nuclear energy program, an analyst says.
“Key financial markets dependent on manipulating the threat of global war will no longer be able to ‘print money’ based on vilifying Iran,” Gordon Duff wrote in a column for Press TV on Tuesday.
He said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “has been working with gangsters” in the United States while threatening an attack on Iran “in order to push up prices for key commodities, oil and others, and make billions based on assuming market positions with total foreknowledge.”
Duff added that the Israeli-fabricated “myth” that Iran poses a nuclear threat was dismantled after Sunday’s historic deal between Tehran and the six world powers – the US, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany.
“Now, with Iran’s moderate government working within a broad cooperative agreement with the world’s major powers, Israel has no imaginary threat to turn to, no reason to ask for shiploads of cluster bombs to drop on Gaza while peddling the rest on the Georgian arms market,” he wrote.
Iran and the world powers sealed an interim deal on November 24 to pave the way for the full resolution of the West’s decade-old dispute with Iran over the country’s nuclear energy program.
In exchange for Iran’s confidence-building move to limit certain aspects of its nuclear activities, the Western countries have undertaken to lift some of the existing sanctions against Iran.
“What is standing as ‘assured’ and soon to be conclusively proven is that Israel and their ‘toadies’ in the West have impacted the people of Iran and their economy for no reasons whatsoever other than as an excuse for something else,” Duff wrote.
