• How Netanyahu became a nuclear terrorist and Russia became Iran’s ally.
By Ronald L. Ray —
In the sociopathic mind of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, any Middle Eastern country seeking to defend itself from Israel’s repeated aggressions in the region, or merely desiring peaceful nuclear power, is itself a terroristic aggressor, posing an “existential threat” to the Zionist state. So as Iran moves toward a negotiated resolution of its nuclear rights and will soon receive defensive missile systems it purchased from Russia, the tinpot tyrant from Tel Aviv has turned completely rabid.
Netanyahu would not have the luxury of acting like a lunatic were it not for Israel’s massive arsenal of nuclear weapons—the silent sword of Damocles hanging as a permanent threat over nations more civilized than the Zionist Occupation Government (ZOG) in Palestine. It is timely, therefore, in light of new revelations, to look at how Israel got the bomb in the first place, and also recent international moves to help Iran shield its citizens from Israeli attacks.
Longtime readers of this newspaper are aware that a key part of Israel’s development of nuclear weapons was their theft of United States atomic secrets and materials, as was the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. But on April 14, 2015, the German newspaper Die Welt published an exposé of hitherto unknown facets of Israel’s nefarious activities—and the surprising co-conspirators.
In 1955, Israel purchased a small, research nuclear reactor from the U.S. As part of “Atoms for Peace,” it was supposed to be used only for civilian purposes. By 1957, France, through three secret agreements and with full knowledge of Israel’s intent to develop atomic weapons, sold a large heavy-water reactor and 385 tons of uranium to the Zionist state, allowing Israel also to develop plutonium. The Negev Desert Dimona reactor was completed in 1964, with production of nuclear bombs underway by 1966. All this and more of the secret program was revealed in 1986 by Israeli whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu.
But one question remained unanswered until now: How did Israel pay for the program to obtain weapons of mass destruction? Some $40 million was raised through secret donations, but the Zionist myth of the “Holocaust” was the source of the rest—$500 million supplied by loans from the Federal Republic of Germany in a vain effort to atone for Germans’ Jewish-imposed “blood guilt.”
In 1960, German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer and Israeli leader David Ben-Gurion decided on a top-secret program, “Operation Business Friend.” The money was funneled in an unauthorized manner by German Defense Minister Franz Josef Strauss from secret funds, leading to his future resignation. And at 2% interest, after repeated loan restructuring, that means German taxpayers were bilked of over $5 billion, of which more than $4 billion was functionally a “gift” toward Israel’s nuclear holocaust weapons.
To this day, despite such activity—horrendous in the eyes of the sane of this world—Israel continues to extort tens of billions of dollars from Germany, including several Dolphin-class submarines capable of launching Israeli atomic weapons anywhere in the world.
Even had the Nazis actually killed 6 million Jews as falsely alleged, the Germans should have realized what many a mother tells her children: Two wrongs do not make a right. Now, thanks to self-hating Germans, the entire world is endangered by an illegitimate Zionist state run by a group of mass murderers and Talmudic genocidal maniacs.
Is it any wonder, then, that Israel’s neighbors seek proper means of defense against its imperialistic goal of “Greater Israel,” from the Nile to the Euphrates and beyond? Nuclear weapons for Iran and others would be a just response to balance regional power.
Yet Iran, with more foresight and consideration for human welfare, long ago abandoned a nuclear weapons program, while Israel—which once transported U.S. arms to Iran—demands Persians give up peaceful nuclear power and even disarm. Perversely, Netanyahu admits but most fears that Iran will honor the impending P5+1 nuclear agreement, taking away his imaginary cause for hostility toward the Islamic nation.
Russia, recognizing the move toward stability, has promised to soon deliver several of its older model S-300 air defense missile systems, ending a five-year moratorium. The S-300, as Russian President Vladimir Putin patiently explained to an outraged Netanyahu, has no offensive capabilities. But it does effectively prevent air attack by all but stealth bombers. Netanyahu and U.S. neocons are furious anyhow. How dare Iran try to defend its people from attack by a more powerful, hostile Israel?
And with Russia also agreeing to barter grain, construction materials and equipment for Persian oil, U.S. sanctions against Iran may well collapse soon in any event, as American businesses like Boeing try to cut in on the action.
But, as is true of all abusers losing control of their victims, look for Netanyahu to become increasingly unstable—even to the point of initiating a world conflagration.
Far from toadying to that duplicitous dictator, the U.S. should be isolating and imposing severe sanctions on Israel, for the sake of peace among nations.
Thank You, Mr. Netanyahu
• Israeli PM did world a favor by admitting there’ll be no peace in Holy Land
By Matthias Chang
The greatest setback of the Palestinian struggle was the unfounded belief and acceptance that Israel was genuine in all the so-called peace negotiations. The Palestinian leadership was seduced and bribed by the lure of quasi-recognition when the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) was “recognized” as the sole and legitimate representative of the Palestinians and the Palestinian Authority was a viable “government” for the occupied territories pending the attainment of full statehood under the “two-state” solution.
Professor Francis Boyle from the United States, a one-time adviser to the PLO, specifically during the Oslo “peace” process, was one of the figures leading the Palestinians astray from their armed struggle.
At the material time, my views made no headway because I had to respect the rights of the Palestinians to determine their future and their chosen path. But I never lost faith that ultimately the Palestinians would come to grips with reality—that they are mere pawns in the geopolitical chessboard to serve the various interests in the Middle East.
To the Zionist Anglo-American establishment, the “Palestinian question” enabled the continuation of the arming of all sides in the Middle East, the biggest and most lucrative market for the military-industrial-banking complex.
To the Arab and Muslim despots in the Middle East, the threat of Israel serves to divert the anger and frustrations of the Arab Muslim masses toward an external enemy rather inwardly to their oppression. These regimes were and are allies of Israel as their survival depends on the existence of Israel. Yet Muslims the world over fail to see beyond the rhetoric, blinkered by the call for an Islamic jihad against the infidels when their actions were otherwise.
English and U.S. war criminals were laughing all the way to the bank, being paid to foment civil wars, Islamic militancy and the senseless killing of Muslims by Muslims under the battle cry, “Allahu-Ahkbar,” “Jihad” etc. while using oil as the instrument to perpetuate the U.S. dollar hegemony via the petrodollar.
The Palestinians have struggled heroically against the racist Tel Aviv regime whenever the latter unleashed barbaric attacks on them in Gaza and the West Bank. But, time after time, they were betrayed by traitors within their ranks who colluded with the Tel Aviv regime and the feudal Islamic despots.
For over 50 years, the heroic Palestinians were told that peace and statehood would be achieved by relying on the alleged good faith and impartiality of the U.S. and the European Union when at every turn they were betrayed. Financial handouts were just sufficient to keep the Palestinian Authority afloat and to keep them addicted to this financial drug. It worked, and the Palestinians were brainwashed to accept the status quo.
Although, the Intifadas were heroic struggles, the leadership—corrupted by foreign funding—ensured that the uprisings were controlled rebellions, knowing that in every struggle the martyrs who heroically gave their lives would no longer be a threat after their liquidation by the Zionist war criminals. They knew that it would take at least 10 years for these rebels to be replaced. They also knew that the status quo would be re-established when the vested interests decide to call for a time out. The steam was carefully let out of the political pressure cooker.
As to be expected, another hypocritical round of peace talks and initiatives are then launched. Pledges are then made to rebuild the devastated homes in Palestine. War Criminals such as former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair are then appointed
as “peace envoys” to ensure justice for the Palestinians.
But it is all a big charade.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu realized that there was no longer the need to continue with the charade, as even the Israelis themselves were getting tired of the peace pantomime. While no Zionist leader dared admit to this truth, Netanyahu—in his desperation to get re-elected for a third term and emboldened by the invitation to address the U.S. Congress and the unmistaken message by the war party that Zionist Israel need no longer pretend to be peaceful in order to get the full and unconditional backing of Congress—declared to the world that there will never be a Palestinian state alongside Israel.
Why should anyone be surprised when the Pentagon years ago, long before 9-11, had already drawn a new map for the entire Middle East? Not surprisingly to many but the seriously brainwashed, there was no Palestinian state listed on the map.
Let’s not waste time organizing “peace” conferences when the war criminals have already declared that they are not interested in peace. Their agenda is war and more wars. There is but one answer to this threat of more wars: Total resistance to the war party.
It’s time the world wakes up to this harsh reality.

Senate Undermining Peace Between Iran and America
• If the Senate rejects a deal that Russia, China, France, England, Germany and Iran have already signed, the U.S. will be left in the cold
By Mark Anderson
Constant references to Iran as a “sponsor of state terrorism” were made by Senate Foreign Relations Committee members when they recently voted unanimously to advance the bipartisan Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015 (S.615), which requires congressional review of any final agreement with Iran.
Iran is currently abiding by a preliminary nuclear agreement reached after extended talks in Geneva. The pact, as reported in AFP’s previous edition, was reached with the U.S., UK, France, Russia, China and Germany. That workable deal had just been sealed, amid the usual belligerent Israeli response, when the Committee approved the bill requiring review of the final agreement that’s expected to follow the preliminary one.
The legislation was coauthored by the committee’s chairman, Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), along with Senators Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Tim Kaine (D-Va.). No surprises there, except that Kaine usually doesn’t rattle sabers like the other co-authors do.
Cosponsors include Senators Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), both of whom are presidential candidates. Paul seemed to hesitate when it was his turn to vote as a committee member, but he gave in and voted for the bill.
The other co-sponsors: Senators John McCain (R-Ariz.), Joe Donnelly (D-Ind.), Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.), Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.), Bill Nelson (D-Fla.), Jim Risch (R-Idaho), Angus King (I-Maine), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), Mike Rounds (R-S.D.), Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Dean Heller (R-NV), Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Ben Sasse (R-Neb.).
Corker issued a news release to heap praise on the bill:. “Despite opposition from the White House all along, I am proud of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s unanimous [19-0] support of this bill that will ensure the American people—through their elected representatives—will have a voice on any final deal with Iran, if one is reached,” said Corker, his tone skeptical. “This bill always has been about allowing Congress the opportunity to review any final deal to ensure it is verifiable and enforceable, before the president could act to unwind the sanctions that Congress put in place and which brought Iran to the table.”
President Barack Hussein Obama stressed on March 3—right after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke to Congress to launch more invective at the idea of fruitful diplomacy with the Persian state—that Iran needs some reassurance that sanctions will be lifted for it to abide by the nuclear deal foisted upon it by supervisory nations that possess enough nuclear weapons to “bounce the rubble” across the globe. Iran, by the West’s own admission, does not have even one operational nuclear weapon. The situation takes “do as I say, not as I do” to a whole new level of hypocrisy.
Corker hopes the committee’s unanimous vote will build bipartisan support for the bill in the full Senate and in the House.
According to the official summary from Corker’s office, the Act includes the following provisions:
• “Within five days of concluding a comprehensive agreement with Iran, the president must submit to Congress: (1) the text of the agreement and all related materials; (2) a verification assessment on Iranian compliance; and (3) a certification that the agreement meets U.S. non-proliferation objectives and does not jeopardize U.S. national security, including [disallowing] Iran to pursue nuclear-related military activities.
• “The president is prohibited from suspending, waiving or otherwise reducing congressional sanctions for up to 52 days after submitting the agreement to Congress.”
• If Obama vetoes the bill, “Congress would have an additional 10 days to override the veto. If the deal is submitted between July 10 and September 7, [the] review period increases to 82 days (60 days plus 12 days for the president to veto and 10 more days for Congress to override a veto). During this period, Congress may hold hearings and approve, disapprove or take no action on the agreement. Passage of a joint resolution of disapproval (over a presidential veto) within the review period would block the president from implementing the deal.
• “After the congressional review period, the president would be required to provide an assessment to Congress every 90 days on Iran’s compliance with the agreement. [If] the president cannot certify compliance, or if the president determines there has been a material breach of the agreement, Congress could vote, on an expedited basis, to restore sanctions that had been waived or suspended under the agreement.”
The bill also requires the Obama administration to issue a series of detailed reports to Congress on Iran’s overall nuclear program, including “its ballistic missiles work,” and “its support for terrorism globally, particularly against Americans and our allies,” although concrete instances of Iranian terrorism against the U.S. were not specified during the committee hearing, save for references to the U.S. hostages held by Iran back in 1979.
