It’s been reported that sometime in the next two months, Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas will visit Iran. On the surface, the meeting of two Islamic state leaders doesn’t seem that big of a stretch – but actually there is no love lost between Hamas and Tehran, their relationship having been recently defined as “frosty” at best.
The reasons are well-known – it was reported by the Huffington Post’s Arabic edition just two weekends ago that Iran had just canceled a scheduled visit by a Hamas delegation to the Islamic Republic in response to Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal’s visit to Tehran’s rival Saudi Arabia last month.
However, the two sides have a mutual hatred of Israel, so it was inevitable that they should eventually join forces. The Jerusalem Post reported August 11 that one item on the upcoming agenda between Abbas and the Iranian President will be a campaign against Israel’s nuclear program. Ahmed Majdalani, former cabinet minister in the Hamas Government, and current Secretary-General of the Palestinian Popular Struggle Front (PPSF) said on Monday, August 10 that his recent visit to Iran was reported to be on an agreement to “revive the idea of an international conference to rid the region of Israel’s nuclear arsenal and weapons of mass destruction“.
In either an instance of very poor timing, or related interest, the United States declassified a number of documents from 1969-1972 yesterday (Tuesday, August 18) dealing with Israel’s nuclear program. The Jerusalem Post rightfully wonders about the timing:
The publication of the documents comes as part of a routine release of historical information by the US State Department. However, the timing of the revelations, on the background of the disagreement between Israel and the US over the nuclear agreement with Iran, lends them an extra meaning.
There are those who would claim that the timing of the release is not a coincidence, and is in fact intended to embarrass Israel, which staunchly opposes the deal with Iran, and embarrass Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who continues in his efforts to challenge the Obama administration and influence Congress to reject the deal.
At last – we may have finally discovered the real reason both Obama and Iran were in such a hurry to sign this deal; why some of the side deals were top secret and we may never know them; and why Obama has been such a jackass (even more than his usual jackassish personae) toward Israel during this entire deal deliberation with Iran.
But wait, there’s more! The Associated Press, in an exclusive today (August 19), is reporting that they have gotten their hands on the text of one of these top secret side deals between Iran and the International Atomic Energy Agency, and it’s a shocker:
Iran will be allowed to use its own inspectors to investigate a site it has been accused of using to develop nuclear arms, operating under a secret agreement with the U.N. agency that normally carries out such work, according to a document seen by The Associated Press…
…The newly disclosed side agreement, for an investigation of the Parchin nuclear site by the U.N.’s International Atomic Energy Agency, is linked to persistent allegations that Iran has worked on atomic weapons. That investigation is part of the overarching nuclear-limits deal.
The report goes on to state that those negotiating the deal with Iran were not only briefed on this side deal, but had agreed to it in principle before they announced the agreement with Iran had been made. This is beyond outrageous. The wolf is allowed to inspect the henhouse now, is it?
The Western media has, likely now due to criminal culpability, kept completely silent on this story. They have so supported the Obama administration throughout this debacle, that they should be charged with criminal intent to aid and abet in this outrageous affair. Do you not think the American people should know about this, before their Congressmen decide to vote on the issue? Do you believe that Congressmen would have even known about this in advance?
Fox News is one of only a few Western media outlets to pick up on this story (not a surprise). The other brave outlets include:
- Victoria, BC’s Times-Colonist newspaper!
- the Macon Telegraph (Beacon, Georgia paper)
- the Cap Times (Madison, Wisconsin paper)
- The Washington Examiner (Washington,. DC – distributes its content via daily online reports and a weekly magazine only), with the unbelievable headline: “State [Department] ‘very comfortable’ with deal letting Iran inspect its own site”. Are they on crack?
- The Washington Times (Washington, DC – readership of about 100,000)
In an embarrassing contrast:
- The Washington Post had an article on Iran as well – the visit of the China Philharmonic Orchestra to that totalitarian nation. For some reason, though two of their city’s competitors picked up on the story right away, this mighty media outlet, which boasted in April that they had broken records with more than 52 million visitors the month before to their site, is completely silent on one of the most important issues of our time. Why? Because they are always regarded at Obama’s official mouthpieces
- the New York Times, also was silent on the story. In fact, the word “Iran” could not be found in a search of the first page of their site. It’s most recent story on Iran? Wall Street Journal Criticizes Iranian Media Accounts Maligning Its Reporter. Wow, it actually takes effort to ignore a story this big about Iran and not look completely stupid.
CNN – also silent on the side inspection agreement with Iran. However, they carry a story that might be equally as scary: “U.S. concerned about Russian arms sales to Iran” What? They do have $150 billion now to spend on whatever they want, thanks to the relaxing of sanctions. The story states:
U.S. officials are concerned that Russia is moving ahead with plans to sell Iran a sophisticated missile defense system that could undercut Washington’s ability to challenge Tehran’s airspace. The advanced S-300 air defense system would mean that U.S. or Israeli warplanes likely couldn’t sneak into Iranian airspace if they wanted to bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities. Bombing the S-300 radar and missiles first would give the Iranians a warning that an attack would be on the way. (emphasis ours)
So much for a military intervention, should Iran say “screw you” to the West and not sign this deal. But the State Department is “very comfortable“, according to the Washington Examiner, with Iran doing its own inspections? Oh, well then we have nothing to worry about, do we? I mean, if I didn’t have a calendar, I’d swear it had to be April Fool’s Day. This just CAN’T be happening. And Americans aren’t stupid – they would see this for what it is, but they aren’t being told. We must get the message out.
Coming back to the original story, there is speculation that Iran and Hamas may have been actually been negotiating to force Israel to give up their nukes as well without even consulting them, under the guise of Iran doing the same and creating a nuclear-free Middle East. One normally would wonder how something so simple in hindsight could go unnoticed (or more likely, be perpetually ignored) by the Western news media. Now, one doesn’t wonder so much about that – it’s expected.
Israel is, with question, the mortal enemy of Iran, according to the last several Presidents of the Islamic state in a row. Therefore, it would be surprising – shocking actually – if one of the items on the table with the United States was not a forced disarmament by Israel as well. Iran would use the excuse that their nuclear ambitions, though clearly energy-related only (cough), also act as a deterrent against the “aggressive monster” (their words, not ours) Israel. Yet, Israel has possibly held nuclear weapons for decades as a deterrent against a fourth massive invasion by Arabic troops in less than 70 years. Their nuclear program is no threat to a peaceful Middle East. Iran, however, is a different matter.
Most Middle East security expert believe it’s highly unlikely Iran will totally comply with the nuclear deal it has yet to be signed anyway. They have dragged their feet for weeks since announcing the deal, as has the United States. However, to force its mortal enemy Israel to disarm its only real deterrent against all-out Arab invasion (being Israel’s ‘reported’ nuclear weapons) would bring together in one possible event the two greatest horrors of the 20th Century:
Holocaust and Hiroshima
This would be the greatest blow to Israel that they have ever witnessed. From a public relations standpoint alone, Iran, the United States and the United Nations have all never possessed a more ugly anti-Semitic mood then they have right now. But Israel’s Prime Minister was to shut up about this? We were all supposed to go along with the “this is the best deal we could get” bulls–t?”
This is how I predict it will fly, and it will fly quickly. Obama is certainly no “friend to Israel” as he likes to state. He makes statements that he’s “the closest thing to a Jew” ever in the White House – then he made sure that remained true by snubbing the actually-elected Jewish leader, the Prime Minister of Israel, in his joint session to Congress earlier in the year.
A quick footnote: Benjamin Netanyahu did not just appear and speak in the United States of his own volition. He was officially invited by the Congress of the United States of America – “Republican-controlled” or otherwise – and protocol and social skills would normally dictate that you put up, shut up and show up – if for no other reason than to legitimize your criticism later. But no, Obama hid in 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue like the sewer rat that he is, waiting for the “Jewish interloper” (not his exact words of course, but the actions speak louder than the words in this scenario) to get back on a plane headed for Jerusalem. Embarrassing. Pathetic. Shameful. Rude. Arrogant. Jackass of the Year. Now, it seems, we can add TRAITOROUS to this list of Obama adjectives as well.
This is the real Obama. Not the “Yes We Can” crap of his first term. The mask is off, the sleeves are rolled up – and the most socialistic, anti-Israel, anti-American President of the United States in history… is finally really getting to work. And U.S. authorities ought to be storming the White House tonight, arresting the bastard, and give him either life without parole or the electric chair for this crime against the United States, or crimes against humanity.
Barack Hussein (sniff) Obama has done more damage to America in 6 years than the first 44 Presidents combined die…in the last 233 years before that. It’s time to get your heads out of the sand – I know you want to believe that an American President couldn’t do this stuff, but regardless, HE IS. It’s time to rise up and remove him from power before it’s too late.
If it’s not already too late.
