Iran and Israel

Nuke them! Iran has committed the ultimate crime: criticising Israel. In fact Iran’s president went as far as denying Israel’s right to exist and called for her to be wiped off the map. There is condemnation all around. The British government found the remarks “sickening”, the French foreign minister, Philippe Douste-Blazy, stated that those remarks were unacceptable and that he condemned them with the greatest firmness, forgetting that France’s own ambassador, Daniel Bernard, had not too long ago called Israel “that shitty little country”.

In fact they all miss the point. Other than in the eyes of Western governments blackmailed into supporting Israel through the collective guilt of holocaust compliance Israel is anything but the darling of the world. And people around the world don’t loathe Israel because of her Jewishness but because of her behaviour.

Let’s face it, Israel is a rogue state in illegal occupation of another country which has flouted 65 security council resolutions against it (and an almost equal number having been vetoed by the United States), has a secret nuclear arsenal but, unlike Iran, never signed up to the non-proliferation treatment, is an apartheid state rather than a democracy where non-Jews are second class citizens and even the Semitic Sephardic (oriental) Jews are discriminated against by the non-Semitic Ashkenazi (Eastern European) majority. Israel is the largest recipient of US foreign aid and has already cost the US tax payer several trillions of dollars, whilst also milking Germany for compensation and going after Switzerland and other countries to cough up for alleged confiscated art treasures.

To boot it, Israel is also the inventor of international terrorism: The first act of air piracy in the history of civil aviation was carried out by Israel in December 1954 when a civilian Syrian airliner was forced down in Tel Aviv and its passengers and crew held hostage for days. And the first act of shooting down a civilian airliner was deliberately carried out by Israel when a Libyan airliner was shot down by Israeli jet fighters over Sinai in February 1973 on the direct orders of then Israeli prime minister Golda Meir killing 107 of its passengers and the entire French crew on board.

But none of that should matter to us – the important thing is that now, finally, we have a valid reason to go to war with Iran…
