To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour. ~ William Blake: Auguries of Innocence
According to IDF Maj. Gen. (res.) Amos Yadlin, a missile flies from Tehran to Tel Aviv in seven minutes. That is substantially more time that it takes to recognize the propagandistic statements made by him, Dennis Ross—formerly U.S. President Barack Obama’s senior Middle East adviser—and Jamie Fly—a former adviser to the George W. Bush administration—at a panel discussion at the Washington Institute’s 2012 Weinberg Founders Conference in Virginia on May 5, 2012. “I don’t agree that we have time, diplomacy is unlikely to work given the record of the Iranians,” said Fly, blatantly ignoring the fact that the Islamic Republic of Iran had never attacked any other country while both Israel and the USA had not refrained from wild attacks on others in even one single year of their entire histories (see American Led Apocalypse). Joseph Goebbels—Reich Minister of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda in Nazi Germany—was watching the event from hell in absolute delight.
It is difficult to comprehend how someone who achieved the rank of major general, was Chief of Staff of the Israeli Air Force and led AMAN, the IDF Military Intelligence Directorate, keeps saying obviously false statements in front of a respectable, supposedly well-educated public and is applauded for that. Amos Yadlin also said: “If they can’t be contained when they don’t have a nuclear weapon, how can they be contained when they do?” In its style, this sentence was typical of Joseph Goebbels. Goebbels was second in the Nazi movement only to Hitler as a public speaker of the Nazi Party. Hitler’s was hoarse and passionate; Goebbels was cool, sarcastic and humorous. He was a master of insinuation, as Amos Yadlin obviously is. After all, what did he mean when he said: “they can’t be contained when they don’t have a nuclear weapon…?” After all, Israel is the one occupying others’ lands and attacking innocents, as pointed out clearly by the UN Council of Human Rights. Yet, Yadlin insinuated the opposite. His Western crowd applauded blindly.
“You know, one of the hardest parts of my job is to connect Iraq to the war on terror.”
George W. Bush, President of the USA in an interview with CBS News’ Katie Couric, September 6, 2006.
Clear (and common) example of Western false rhetoric.
Yadlin kept openly laughing at his audience. “I am sure they won’t launch a nuclear bomb the moment they get it, but the possibility that as a result of miscalculations and lack of stability they will launch a nuclear missile is not a possibility you can ignore,” he said. I was glad to see Yadlin recognizing—as the CIA and all other involved sides did—that Iran is not planning to attack anybody. This statement already renders all Western belligerent rhetoric useless. But Yadlin shoot both his feet with a single bullet. He claimed that an unstable country should not be allowed to have nuclear weapons due to the danger of miscalculations. Mr. Yadlin, my dear major general, did you check out how many of Israel’s governments reached their timely end? Did you notice that due to his lack of capability to govern, Mr. Netanyahu has called for early elections this year? If you are unaware of that, you can read Netanyahu’s Night of the Long Knives. Israel is orders of magnitude less stable than Iran, a country with a continuous history spanning several millennia. Considering this, could you please rephrase your false statement?
I was about to dismiss the entire event, but Yadlin kept firing his Goebbels-style missiles. “If you really want all options on the table, you need to be very credible with the military option,” Yadlin said. I commented in Isra-bluff that Israel is conducting a sophisticated disinformation campaign on its intentions toward a war on Iran. Here is another example. A Hebrew speaker as he is, Yadlin intentions behind the sentence are clear: you need to be very credible, because this is a false statement. Israel is not planning an attack on Iran; it prefers Uncle Obama to carry it out. Yadlin is part of the Israeli disinformation operation. I want to emphasize another implied untruth in Yadlin’s words: “they can’t be contained when they don’t have a nuclear weapon” What? Since when is the role of a society to contain others? Why a nuclear Israel thinks it has the right to block the right of other people to self-defense from Israel’s unquestioned aggression? Mr. Yadlin, are you aware of the principle of reciprocity in diplomacy and other equally respected disciplines? Do you think your people are better than the Iranians are, and thus should be given an unfair advantage while they shamelessly pursue the systematic destruction of other civilizations?
Dennis Ross attacked along similar lines. He said that diplomacy might succeed in stopping Iran’s nuclear program: “Why would it work now? Now the Iranians are under pressure they’ve never been before. They are isolated internationally; the power balance in region has shifted against them…” Mr. Ross assumed his audience doesn’t read newspapers. Days before his ridiculous claim, it was announced India and Iran had began trading oil—Iran’s main export—in local currencies, abandoning the battered American dollar. That’s true all over Asia. Mr. Ross, it is the USA the one becoming increasingly isolated. A day may come in which international banks won’t dare giving you Indian rupees in exchange for your unreliable, cotton-paper American dollars. If you want to fight along this line of rhetoric, I recommend you to study carefully Joseph Goebbels’ speeches. I am sure General Yadlin will be glad to join such a study group.
While this nonsense, propagandistic panel took place, Israel kept reinforcing its nuclear second strike capabilities (see Six Million Submarines). This means that Israel will be able to strike with nuclear weapons from submarines at hidden locations at sea even if its nuclear weapons stored on land are harmed in an enemy strike. However, why does one need a second strike option, if there are no real options of an initial attack taking place? As said, not even the CIA claims that Iran is militarily offensive. Not even General Yadlin says that. Israel is spending so much money on this that we must be witnessing something else. How would Israeli leaders continue to be leaders if the state changes for good? How would they stay in power if it becomes a true democracy also for its non-Jewish citizens? The time of choices is approaching. The Jewish leadership will not renounce its powers regardless of the cost. In order to stay in power during the next (and final) Diaspora, they need a new narrative to sell to their badly beaten sheep. Here is where the massive investment in nuclear technologies begins to make sense. It seems this time the narrative would be Samson’s Option, a nuclear holocaust. It may begin as a false flag attack; in order for this to work, the Jewish leaders must be able to claim “we were attacked; the entire world is still against us!” Following the false flag attack, or a surgical Israeli strike on Iranian installations, the latter would be forced to make a defensive strike on Israel. The initiating excuse matters little; Israel must force a cataclysmic attack on itself. Damage so heavy the State of Israel would not be viable anymore. Then, the culprit would be destroyed with the second strike capability acquired with the help of the state-of-the-art German submarines. This last step is necessary in order to destroy all proofs of the scheme, so that history would be written (again) by Zionist forces abroad.
General Yadlin, it is you and your allies that must be contained. You are the violent ones. Enough! We don’t want your demagogy. We don’t want your lies. We don’t want your bombs. Opening old books and reading Joseph Goebbels speeches is enthralling enough for all of us when in the mood for that. General Yadlin, you have a short memory. In November 1938, Herschel Grynszpan, shot a German diplomat in Paris, Ernst vom Rath, in revenge for the deportation of his family to Poland. Goebbels following incitement resulted in the Kristallnacht, the “Night of Broken Glass,” during which the SA and Nazi Party went on a rampage of anti-Jewish violence and destruction. “This is one dead man who is costing the Jews dear. Our darling Jews will think twice in future before gunning down German diplomats,” wrote Goebbels about the event. General Yadlin, are you—and the Israeli leadership in general—trying to provoke with your demagogy a new Herschel Grynszpan to begin an unnecessary war with Iran?
“Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand, And Eternity in an hour” wrote William Blake in the text brought at the beginning of this article. Mr. Yadlin, for all eternity humanity will remember the seven minutes it took to get rid of evil. At least, don’t forget that.
