Hillary Clinton Warns of Nonexistent Iranian Threat to Israel

Hillary Clinton Warns of Nonexistent Iranian Threat to Israel

by Stephen Lendman

Iran promotes regional peace and stability. It threatens no other nation. Claims about it wanting Israel destroyed are manufactured Big Lies - repeated to demonize the Islamic Republic, maintain lawless sanctions and keep it isolated.

On Friday, presidential aspirant/unindicted war criminal Hillary Clinton addressed a hand-picked audience at a Dartmouth College campaign event. She lied calling Iran an "existential threat to Israel."

She demonized Tehran further saying "I hope we are able to get a deal next week that puts a lid on (its) nuclear weapons program."

"Even if we do get such a deal, we will still have major problems from Iran. They are the world’s chief sponsor of terrorism."

"They use proxies like Hezbollah to sow discord and create insurgencies to destabilize governments. They are taking more and more control of a number of nations in the region and they pose an existential threat to Israel."

"We…have turn our attention to working with our partners to try to reign in and prevent this continuing Iranian aggressiveness."

Fact: US and Israeli intelligence both say Iran's nuclear program has no military component.

Fact: No evidence whatever suggests Tehran wants one. Plenty indicates otherwise.

Fact: Iran is a leading anti-terrorism force - polar opposite America and Israel, the world's leading sponsors of destabilizing violence and aggression.

Fact: Iran, Hezbollah and Hamas threaten no one - nor seek control of other nations.

Fact: No Iranian aggressiveness exists. Claiming otherwise is willful lying - a notorious Hillary Clinton trait.

As a 2008 presidential aspirant, she addressed AIPAC's annual convention saying:

"The United States stands with Israel now and forever. We have shared interests....shared ideals....common values. I have a bedrock commitment to Israel's security."

"(O)ur two nations are fighting a shared threat" against Islamic extremism. I strongly support Israel's right to self-defense (and) believe America should aid in that defense."

"I am committed to making sure that Israel maintains a military edge to meet increasing threats. I am deeply concerned about the growing threat in Gaza (and) Hamas' campaign of terror."

No such campaign exists. The only threats Israel faces are ones it invents.

Clinton repeated tired old lies saying Hamas' charter "calls for the destruction of Israel. Iran threatens to destroy Israel."

"I support calling the Iranian Revolutionary Guard what it is: a terrorist organization. It is imperative that we get both tough and smart about dealing with Iran before it is too late."

She backs "massive retaliation" if Iran attacks Israel, saying at the time:

"I want the Iranians to know that if I'm president, we will attack Iran. In the next 10 years, during which they might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them."

In other words, she threatened to murder 77 million Iranians. She's unabashedly hawkish. She favors police state harshness domestically. She voted for the Patriot Act as a US senator and other repressive legislation.

She endorses outsized military spending. She supports every war America wages and plans. She earlier said "I'll stand behind (GW) Bush for a long time to come."

She endorses using cluster bombs, toxic agents and nuclear weapons in US war theaters. She calls them deterrents that "keep the peace."

She was one of only six Democrat senators opposed to blocking deployment of untested missile defense systems - first-strike weapons entirely for offense.

She represents the worst of America's dark side - a monument to wrong over right, a major threat to humanity if she's elected president next year.

Global predator George Soros and media mogul Haim Saban are two of her major donors along with powerful corporate interests hedging their bets by supporting leading candidates from both parties.

She's an unabashed warmonger indifferent to human suffering. Her posturing about human rights belies her public record.

She's militantly anti-Putin. At an earlier California fundraiser, she outrageously compared him to Hitler.

Will she claim a mandate to confront him militarily if elected president? Will she be remembered as the lunatic who launched WW III? It's hard imagining a worse choice for the nation's highest office.
