Israel and its Western allies are now so determined to convince the world that Iran has a nuclear weapons program that it is prepared to murder Iran’s nuclear scientists in order to create the illusion that they fear for the security of Israel and the West to such an extent that they are prepared to go to these extremes. They hope that the West, while condemning the murders, will nonetheless become convinced that Iran does have a nuclear weapons program and that the only way ultimately that Iran can be deterred from building a nuclear weapon is for the West to attack Iran in order to affect regime change.

The assassination of Iranian nuclear scientists has become another part of Israel’s elaborate and relentless propaganda program designed to build Western public opinion against the Iranian regime and to prepare the West for a devastating attack against Iran using Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons as the excuse for such an attack.

With regard to the reports about the assassinations and who has been responsible for them, what has been highly unusual is the way the Western mainstream media for almost a year now have actually supported the claims that Israel and the West have been responsible for them and the lack of reporting of any denials from official sources. Ha’aretz report that one of the reasons for the West taking covert action against Iran by assassinating its nuclear scientists is because the Israelis do not believe that the US is ready to attack Iran and so, therefore, the Israelis and the West are removing the threat by other means. This is a furphy that has become part of the propaganda. The reality is far different.

Despite the deafening daily roar of the ‘Iran seeks nuclear weapons’ propaganda, there is still not one skerrick of evidence to prove that Iran actually is seeking nuclear weapons. What has become lost in the hysteria over Iran and its so-called ‘nuclear weapons program’ is any analytical reasoning as to why Iran would want to build and use a nuclear weapon against the West knowing that to do so would mean the end of Iran as a result of an instant nuclear reprisal. There is absolutely no evidence at all to suggest that Iran has any such death wish. While the war between Iraq and Iran demonstrated that Iran is prepared to make enormous sacrifices to defend its own soil and sovereignty, there is no evidence whatsoever to suggest that Iran is prepared to sacrifice the entire nation for the sake of defending another that is on the other side of the Middle Eastern continent.

So what is going on?

If there were regime change tomorrow to a regime that was friendly toward Israel and the West, the notion that Iran is seeking nuclear weapons would disappear overnight never to be heard of again. The reason for that is because disappearing with it would be Iran’s support of Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in the Gaza Strip. And this is what all the fuss is really all about.

It’s has absolutely nothing to do with nuclear weapons; it has absolutely everything to do with depriving Hamas and Hezbollah of Iranian support which would then allow Israel a free hand in the Gaza and Lebanon in order to advance their eventual dream of a Greater Israel.

Yes, indeed, Anonymous; they are really pushing hard to claw back the many brownie points they lost in the eyes of the world when they behaved liked animals as they vicously attacked a defencless people in the Gaza Strip.

It's a pity the Israeli government can't show as much compassion to their neighbours as they do to people on the other side of the planet.
