A few days ago, Both the German news magazine Der Spiegel and the Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported that,
“Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon implied that Israel may seek to assassinate Iranian nuclear scientists in order stop Iran’s nuclear program…“In response to the question ‘So will we see further deaths of Iranian nuclear scientists through attacks or malware compromising Iranian computer networks?’ Ya’alon said: ‘We should be ready to defend ourselves. I’m not responsible for the lives of Iranian scientists.’”
Ya’alon also said:
“At the end, it is very clear. One way or another, the Iranian military nuclear ambitions should be stopped. We can in no way tolerate an Iran with nuclear weapons. We prefer for this to be done through a deal or sanctions, but in the end, Israel should be able to defend itself.”
A number of points should be made here. First of all, the question which Der Spiegel posed to Ya’alon is itself an implicit admission that the Israeli regime got involved in covert assassination plots in the past. In fact, U.S. officials admitted that Israeli fingerprints are all over the killings of Iranian scientists.
“Israel’s Mossad trained and financed a terrorist group that carried out a series of Hollywood-style assassinations of Iranian nuclear scientists, unnamed US officials have revealed.” Even NBC News entitled one of their articles “Israel teams with terror group to kill Iran’s nuclear scientists, U.S. officials tell NBC News.”
Eli Lake of the Daily Beast said that the Mossad later bragged about how they ended up assassinating those Iranian scientists in cold blood. William Tobey, “a former deputy administrator of the National Nuclear Security Administration and a National Security Council specialist on nuclear issues,” declared then:
“This sophisticated technique is uncharacteristic of the Iranian armed opposition and the Iranian government, it is characteristic of the Mossad. I am unaware of episodes when Americans and Europeans have done this kind of assassination. Of course, the Americans are involved in assassinations using predators, but not this kind of operation with agents on the ground, the natural suspect is the Mossad.”
“A former Mossad officer now living in Canada who goes by the pseudonym Michael Ross said the attacks bore the hallmarks of an Israeli operation. ‘This tactic is not a new one for the Mossad, and worked very effectively against Egypt’s rocket program in the 1960s. During that period, the scientists involved in that project were assassinated and the program suffered immensely.’”
Those covert assassination plots were documented quite extensively by Israeli-American writers Dan Raviv and Yossi Melan in their book Spies Against Armageddon: Inside Israel’s Secret Wars. This fact was so obvious that the Obama administration later asked the Israeli regime to stop killing Iranians scientists.
But since Zionism tells us that only Muslims can engage in terrorist activities, the New York Times was reluctant to admit that killing Iranian scientists was indeed an act of terrorism. The title of one of their articles was quite stunning: “Iran Reports Killing of Nuclear Scientist in ‘Terrorist’ Blast.”
Even to this very day, both the New York Times and the Washington Post refuse to admit that Israelis can commit acts of terrorism. As an alternative, they prefer to use the phrase “Jewish extremists.” The Washington Post, as well as the New York Times, once used the word “terrorism” in their titles—but it was in quotation marks, leaving the impression that the issue itself was debatable or questionable.
Isabel Kershner, a representative for the Israeli regime, wrote that those “extremists” are “young Jewish zealots believed to be associated with the Revolt, a shadowy network described by its members as an anarchistic vision of redemption.” Last June, the New York Times reported that “Israel Church Set Ablaze in Possible Jewish Extremist Attack.”
But those “Jewish extremists” again cannot be terrorists. But Rabbi Bentzi Gopstein messed this Zionist project up by saying that burning churches is a good thing. Gopstein even cited Moses Maimonides saying that since Christianity is idolatry, then it must be destroyed. In other words, it was a great thing that the “extremists” set the church on fire. “Thus, in theory,” reported the Jerusalem Post, “Gopstein said he was in favor of burning churches in Israel.”
So, Gopstein almost certainly agrees with terrorist cells such as ISIS. The New York Times itself declared that ISIS is terrorizing Christians in the Middle East. Keep in mind that ISIL leader, “Simon Elliot, aka Al-Baghdadi,” was Jewish and a Mossad agent.
If this is far-fetched for some, keep also in mind that Syrian rebels/terrorists are routinely treated well in Israeli hospitals. The International Business Times sent shockwaves across the political spectrum last December when it reported that
“Israeli Defence Forces (IDF) have been in regular contact with Syrian rebels, including Islamic State (ISIS) militants. Citing the UN report, Haaretz noted that there have been several instances detailed in the report that shows close ties between Syrian armed rebels and Israeli army.
“According to the UN report, a person wounded on 15 September “was taken by armed members of the opposition across the ceasefire line, where he was transferred to a civilian ambulance escorted by an IDF vehicle.
“Moreover, from 9-19 November, the UNDOF observed at least 10 wounded persons being transferred by armed members of the opposition from the Bravo side across the ceasefire line to IDF.
“As per the details released by the Israel’s health ministry, so far some 1,000 Syrians have been treated in four Israeli hospitals. Besides the civilians, some are members of the secular Free Syrian Army rebel group.
“Israel initially had maintained that it was treating only civilians. However, reports claimed that earlier last month members of Israel’s Druze minority protested the hospitalisation of wounded Syrian fighters from the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front in Israel.
“A statement issued by a group of Druze activists accused the Israeli government of supporting radical Sunni factions such as the Islamic State (ISIS).
“Replying to a question by i24News on whether Israel has given medical assistance to members of al-Nusra and Daesh (the Arabic acronym for the Islamic State (ISIS), a Israeli military spokesman’s office said: ‘In the past two years the Israel Defence Forces have been engaged in humanitarian, life-saving aid to wounded Syrians, irrespective of their identity.’
“The UN report also laid out instances where in Israeli army was seen interacting with armed rebels. In one incident, the report claimed that the IDF gave some boxes to the Syrian armed rebels.”
So, what we are seeing here is that Christopher Greene was obviously on the right path when he defined ISIS as the “Israeli Strategic Intelligence Service.” If this is not far-fetched, and Haaretz would probably agree with Greene here, since they released an article last February entitled: “Netanyahu owes a hearty thanks to ISIS.“
