There’s been a lot of rhetoric from Israel and their neoconservative supporters over the years about ‘appeasing’ Iran in much the same way as Nazi Germany was appeased prior to the Second World War. The truth, however, is that it is not Iran that is being appeased at all, but Israel.
One needs only to compare the history and policies of Nazi Germany with the history and policies of Iran to see that the two have absolutely no parallels whatsoever. But, when one compares the history and policies of Nazi Germany with the history and policies of Zionist Israel, one sees clearly the striking parallels between the two.
Like Nazi Germany, Israel is an expansionist state. Just as Nazi Germany laid claim to the Rhineland, the Sudetenland, Austria, Poland, Russia, etc., in order to create a Greater Germany, so Zionist Israel lays claim to Jerusalem, the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, the Golan Heights, south Lebanon up to the Litani River, etc., in order to create a Greater Israel. Iran, on the other hand, makes no such claims against its neighbours.
Just as Nazi Germany armed itself to become militarily the most powerful nation in Europe in order to support its territorial claims, so Zionist Israel has armed itself to become militarily the most powerful nation in the Middle East in order to support its territorial claims. Any armament Iran has is for the defence of its borders and against attack.
Just as Nazi Germany ghettoised the Jews into a part of Warsaw in Poland as it invaded the nations it wished to become part of greater Germany, so Zionist Israel has ghettoised the Palestinian people into the Gaza Strip in Palestine as it invaded the land it wished to become part of Greater Israel; land which was not even part of the immoral deal that was made with the Zionists when Israel was created, but which the world, in appeasing the Zionists, let them keep anyway. Iran, on the other hand has not ghettoised any people nor claimed their land and property.
Just as Nazi Germany emptied homes in occupied eastern countries of Jews in order to give them to ethnic Germans as part of the creation of Greater Germany, so Zionist Israel has emptied homes in eastern Jerusalem and other parts of the West Bank in order to give them to ethnic Jews as part of the creation of Greater Israel. The Iranians haven’t turfed anyone out from their homes in conquered lands in order to create a Greater Iran – indeed, there are no conquered lands and there are no delusions of grandeur about creating a Greater Iran.
Just as Nazi Germany used overwhelming and indiscriminate force to subdue and kill Jews herded into the Warsaw Ghetto depriving them of the basic essentials to life and who then revolted against the SS-Nazis in a heroic yet futile attempt to free themselves, so Zionist Israel used overwhelming and indiscriminate force to subdue and kill Palestinians who had revolted against the IDF-Zionists in a heroic yet futile attempt to free themselves after having been herded into the Gaza Strip and deprived of the basic essentials to life. Iran has not herded anyone into a ghetto and then attempted to slowly deprive them of the essentials of life let alone sent guided missiles and phosphorus bombs indiscriminately into the civilian population killing and wounding thousands.
Just as the SS-Nazis attempted to shut down the supply tunnels that Jews had created in order to smuggle food, supplies and weapons with which to resist their tormentors into the Warsaw Ghetto, so IDF-Zionists are attempting to shut down the supply tunnels that Palestinians have created in order to smuggle food, supplies and weapons with which to resist their tormentors into the Gaza Strip ghetto. Iran has no need to shut down supply tunnels anywhere.
Yet for all the obvious parallels, Israel, the US and their Western allies still insist that Iran wants to take over the Middle East and that the rest of the world and those on the left in the West are ‘appeasing’ Iran.
The true modern day appeasers are the US and their Western allies who are appeasing the expansionist apartheid state of Israel in its quest to create a Greater Israel. All Iran is doing is providing support to those who Israel and her allies wish to conquer and oppress while the US provides Zionist Israel with all the military wherewithal it needs to help create a Greater Israel at the expense of the Palestinian and Arab people.
