Israel Intends Blitzkrieg Against Iran Nuclear Deal
by Stephen Lendman
It's got most House and Senate members convinced. It's working on others directly and through its Lobby - applying their usual heavy-handed pressure.
It's got media scoundrel editors concerned. New York Times ones support the deal with reservations, saying:
"(N)o one should have any illusions about Iran, which considers Israel a sworn enemy; often condemns the United States; supports Hezbollah and other terrorist organizations; and aspires to greater influence in the region."
"Once sanctions are lifted, it stands to gain access to billions of dollars from accounts in international banks that have been frozen and from new oil exports and other business deals."
Fact: Iran supports mutual cooperation among all nations - what Times and other scoundrel media editors never explain - or that it promotes regional peace and stability.
Fact: Hezbollah is a legitimate, democratically elected part of the Lebanese government. It's no terrorist organization - what's never explained, Big Lies substituting.
Washington Post editors called Tuesday's agreement "complex and costly." They bashed Iran irresponsibly, put the onus on its officials alone to comply - ignoring a seven-country agreement requiring cooperation from all.
They claimed Tehran will likely use some of their unfrozen cash "to finance wars and terrorist groups in Iraq, Syria, the Gaza Strip, Yemen and elsewhere" - polar opposite reality.
They implied Tehran might cheat by doing clandestine nuclear work elsewhere. Not a shred of evidence suggests it. Claims otherwise are fabricated.
Wall Street Journal editors were darned right hostile - headlining "Tehran's Nuclear Triumph." Flat-out lying claiming the "deal leaves Tehran on the cusp of a bomb while sanctions vanish."
It assures Iran "will eventually become a nuclear (weapons) power, while limiting" post-Obama presidents from stopping it. "(T)he Vienna accord promises to usher in a new age of nuclear proliferation."
Rubbish! It does precisely the opposite. The Islamic Republic through words and policies outright rejects nuclear weapons, wants them eliminated to avoid possible mass annihilation otherwise.
For 36 years, it endured relentless irresponsible bashing - including false claims of reneging on agreements and fabricated acccusations of clandestine nuclear weapons development. Tuesday's deal did nothing to change things.
As long as it remains independent and opposed to US and Israeli aggression, it'll remain a target for regime change - by color revolution or war.
Meanwhile, Israeli bashing is just getting started. Netanyahu reacted as expected with his usual litany of scare-mongering Big Lies. He called the deal "a stunning historic mistake."
He accused Iran of intending to use unfrozen cash to further its "efforts to destroy Israel." It facilitates its "capacity to produce many nuclear bombs."
The whole world knows Israel is the region's sole (armed and dangerous) nuclear power - supplemented by banned chemical and biological weapons arsenals freely used at its discretion.
National Infrastructure, Energy and Water Minister Yuval Steinitz is Netanyahu's point person on Iran and nuclear affairs.
He lied saying "when you examine the (deal's) details, you discover that the inspection (system) is actually just a mirage" - implying Iran has secret military sites involved in nuclear weapons development, despite no evidence suggesting it whatever. If true, sophisticated US surveillance would have discovered them long ago.
Steinitz called inspection requirements "worse than worthless. It serves only the Iranians," he blustered. He ludicrously called unfreezing Iranian assets "pouring fuel on the burning Middle East."
He failed to explain Washington and Israel ignite all the fires - and keep them burning endlessly at the cost of millions of lives and vast destruction.
Post-Vienna, Iran bashing is just beginning. Congress has two months to decide up or down whether to accept it.
Expect Israel and its Lobby to take full advantage - pressuring as many lawmakers as possible to vote "no," using their usual tactics of substituting Big Lies for hard truths.
