Netanyahu Concedes Defeat: Bombing Iran Is No Longer an Option

“You mean I can’t summon lies and fabrications anymore to attack Iran? And you mean nearly 100,000 people want me to be arrested in the UK? Headache.”

…by Jonas E. Alexis


Oh, dear. Netanyahu, the man who has numerous covert agents and political assassins in the United States (Mike Hukabee, John McCain, Marco Rubio, Scott Walker, Carly Fiorina, Lindsey Graham, Sarah Palin, Dick Cheney, John Bolton, etc.), is shifting gear. He is on the move.

Netanyahu taught his disciples that Iran is the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism. Those disciples quickly began to repeat the words of their master almost verbatim. Dick Cheney, one of the most lying liars in the twenty-first century, has recently written that

“Under Khomeini, Iran became the world’s leading state sponsor of terror, targeting the United States, our allies, and our interests around the world.”[1]

The scholarly source for this extraordinary claim? It was nowhere to be found. On the contrary, we have enough evidence indicating that Iran has fought against terrorism.[2] The irony is that under Zionism, the United States has had a long history of supporting and abetting terrorism, and this is all done in the name of “war on terror.” Don’t believe me? Let us look at a recent example.

"Working for the Zionists really pays. You get to hang out with chicks, pass classified information, and still get away with it. Thank God that I am not Edward Snowden."
“Working for the Zionists really pays. You get to hang out with chicks, pass out classified information, and still get away with it. Thank God that I am not Edward Snowden.”

Former head of the CIA David Petraeus has recently posited that the United States has to make a sort of diabolical deal with Al-Qaeda in order to defeat ISIS. Listen to the Daily Beast:

“Members of al Qaeda’s branch in Syria have a surprising advocate in the corridors of American power: retired Army general and former CIA Director David Petraeus.

“The former commander of U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan has been quietly urging U.S. officials to consider using so-called moderate members of al Qaeda’s Nusra Front to fight ISIS in Syria, four sources familiar with the conversations, including one person who spoke to Petraeus directly…”[3]

The Daily Beast itself says that Petraeus seemed to have underestimated the monster which the Zionist regime has created:

“The tactic worked, at least temporarily. But al Qaeda in Iraq was later reborn as ISIS, and has become the sworn enemy of its parent organization. Now, Petraeus is returning to his old play, advocating a strategy of co-opting rank-and-file members of al Nusra, particularly those who don’t necessarily share all of core al Qaeda’s Islamist philosophy.”[4]

This is really confusing because “In 2012, the Obama administration designated al Nusra a foreign terrorist organization. And last year, the president ordered airstrikes on al Nusra positions housing members of the Khorasan Group, an al Qaeda cadre that was trying to recruit jihadists with Western passports to smuggle bombs onto civilian airliners.”[5]

It gets even more pathetic because Petraeus

“still wields considerable influence with current officials, U.S. lawmakers, and foreign leaders. The fact that he feels comfortable recruiting defectors from an organization that has declared war on the United States underscores the tenuous nature of the Obama administration’s strategy to fight ISIS, which numerous observers have said is floundering in search of a viable ground force.”[6]

Remember that Petraeus was caught passing classified information to his mistress. According to the law, Petraeus ought to be behind bars. Yet since he works for the Zionist regime, he “still wields considerable influence with current officials, U.S. lawmakers, and foreign leaders.”

So, the logic is pretty clear here. Edward Snowden passed classified information to other parties and the Zionist regime wants his head on a silver platter. Petreus did something similar, and he still gets to hold his position. This is certainly disgusting.

So, when I read Cheney’s earlier statement, I really thought that someone should have doused him with a bucket of water. Cheney must remember that it was not Iran that trained terrorist groups such as the MEK in Nevada. It was actually the Bush administration.

In short, we can ignore Cheney’s new book in our discussion here, since lies and fabrications are its fundamental premises.

I wonder what Cheney would say to his political boss Benjamin Netanyahu, who now isn’t moving toward aggressive expansion with respect to the Iran deal. Netanyahu seems to be recanting from many of his bombastic and acerbic speeches. Previously, he thought really deep about bombing Iran’s nuclear facilities. In fact, he was planning to do exactly that in 2010 and 2011?[7] But now he seems to be taking somewhat a modest views. Listen to him carefully:

“Allow me to make clear that Israel is not opposed to a civilian nuclear program in Iran. We are opposed to a militarized nuclear program in Iran.”[8]

Netanyahu obviously has good reason to back off. Almost 100,000 people have signed a petition at the UK Parliament’s website calling for his arrest. There is more. A few weeks ago, Israeli writer Bradley Burston has lamented that Israel has finally become an apartheid state.[9] And then this:

“A US congresswoman has asked the State Department to investigate whether the killing of two Palestinian teenagers by Israeli security forces last year would preclude Israel from receiving military aid under American law.”[10]

So, Netanyahu fears that the world is finally waking up. But his seemingly conceding statement above still does not make any sense. If he truly believes it, then what was all that talk about Iran getting closer and closer to nuclear bombs? Why did he not clarify this issue from the very beginning? Why did he and the Israeli regime spend years brainwashing much of the West and saying that Iran was simply weeks and months away from getting nuclear bombs?[11] Why did the Israeli regime ask the U.S. to give them a green light to bomb Iran in 2008?[12]

Moreover, why did Netanyahu convince dancing puppets like Sarah Palin, who were more than willing to chantbomb Iran”? Isn’t that a sign of madness? Didn’t Netanyahu, as former C.I.A. agent Paul R. Pillar pointed out, “center much of his political career on fear-mongering about Iran”?[13]

Perhaps the real prophet here is E. Michael Jones, who said last July that “After 36 years of failure, the American empire now seems determined to lure Iran back into the fold by proffering carrots rather than wielding sticks.”[14]

I do have many disagreements with the Obama administration, but one can safely say that the administration played a crucial role in destabilizing Netanyahu’s project with respect to Iran. As we have noted in the past, it began with calling Netanyahu “a chickenshit.” The Atlantic quickly saw that it was a historic moment. The Atlantic titled one of their articles: “The Crisis in U.S.-Israel Relations Is Officially Here.”[15] Jeffrey Goldberg himself said then:

“Over the years, Obama administration officials have described Netanyahu to me as recalcitrant, myopic, reactionary, obtuse, blustering, pompous, and ‘Aspergery.’ (These are verbatim descriptions; I keep a running list.)  But I had not previously heard Netanyahu described as a ‘chickenshit.’”[16]

Moreover, the Obama administration refused to meet with Netanyahu and members of his cabinet on numerous occasions. This obviously indicated that the administration was getting tired of Netanyahu’s nonsense. Joshua Keating of Slate wrote that

“a ‘pro-Israel congressional aide’ told Foreign Policy’s John Hudson, ‘There is a limit to how much you can shit all over the White House and expect to get every meeting you want.’”[17]

But long before the Atlantic came out with the report last year, talking heads in Washington knew pretty well that Obama had a history of humiliating Netanyahu (for good reasons). For example, the Telegraph reported in 2010:

“The snub marked a fresh low in US-Israeli relations and appeared designed to show Mr Netanyahu how low his stock had fallen in Washington after he refused to back down in a row over Jewish construction in east Jerusalem.

“The Israeli prime minister arrived at the White House on Tuesday evening brimming with confidence that the worst of the crisis in his country’s relationship with the United States was over.

“Over the previous two days, he had been feted by senior Republicans and greeted warmly by members of Congress. He had also received a standing ovation from the American Israel Public Affairs Affairs Committee, one of the most influential lobby groups in the United States.

“But Mr Obama was less inclined to be so conciliatory. He immediately presented Mr Netanyahu with a list of 13 demands designed both to the end the feud with his administration and to build Palestinian confidence ahead of the resumption of peace talks. Key among those demands was a previously-made call to halt all new settlement construction in east Jerusalem.

“When the Israeli prime minister stalled, Mr Obama rose from his seat declaring: ‘I’m going to the residential wing to have dinner with Michelle and the girls.’

“As he left, Mr Netanyahu was told to consider the error of his ways. ‘I’m still around,’ Mr Obama is quoted by Israel’s Yediot Ahronot newspaper as having said. ‘Let me know if there is anything new.’”[18]

So, Obama was basically saying,

“The United States is giving you billions upon billions of dollars every year and you’re spending that money on things we do not like, such as the Settlement? Well, I’m going to have dinner with my family, but you are not invited. And then I have to put my children to bed.[19]

“Just give me a call if you change your mind about the Settlement. If you still stand by what you said, then think about the title my administration has given you. It is still on the back of our mind, and you need to get used to that title, Bro.”

Netanyahu certainly was not expecting this blowback in 2015. As we shall see in the next article, he has also received an implicit rebuke from Vladimir Putin as well. Netanyahu is the epitome of what Hegel would have called “the cunning of reason.”

In other words, reason, not Netanyahu or the Zionist regime or the Neo-Bolsheviks in America, will inevitably win the war for the minds and hearts of men everywhere. As Alexander Solzhenitsyn put it:

“Our way must be: never knowingly support lies! Having understood where the lies begin—step back from that gangrenous edge! Let us not glue back the flaking scale of the Ideology, not gather back its crumbling bones, nor patch together its decomposing garb, and we will be amazed how swiftly and helplessly the lies will fall away, and that which is destined to be naked will be exposed as such to the world.”[20]
