IT’S BEGINNING TO LOOK AS THOUGH ISRAEL’S RAID ON SYRIA’S ‘NUCLEAR’ FACILITIES DIDN’T HAPPEN AFTER ALL.
A raid of some sort happened but it seems that various US intelligence analysts agree that it wasn’t on any Syrian ‘nuclear’ facility; mainly on account that they don’t actually have one besides the small Chinese supplied facility that they’ve had for years that produces isotopes for medical research, etc.
Someone who pushes the buttons at the US/Israel propaganda factory must have realised that the ‘nuclear Syria’ fairy story was pushing the propaganda envelope just a little too far and Israel were very wise in not confirming anything officially and doing what they did do and that is fly a proverbial kite with ‘nuclear Syria’ on it and see how high that goes.
It didn’t go very high. If Syria had a ‘nuclear weapons facility’ Israel would have made sure that the world knew about it a long, long time ago. They must have also quickly realised that the logistics of getting a raiding party into a high security facility, lifting a load of ‘hot’ nuke stuff and sneaking it away back to Israel and then getting the place destroyed by an air strike is pure delusional James Bond fantasy.
It now seems the raid was more about Korean missiles being supplied to the Syrians. Of course they are not just any old missiles; these are supposed to be equipped with chemical weapons so we are still back with the old ‘they’ve got Weapons of Mass Destruction!’ cry from the Israelis and the US, ignoring entirely that fact that both Israel and the US also have WMDs.
THE ISRAEL LOBBY WORK OVERTIME PROMOTING ‘NATIONAL HATE WEEK’ IN THE U.S.
William Kristol of The Weekly Standard has been doing his bit, yet again, helping the Israel Lobby in promoting hatred of Iran and its visiting President Ahmadinejad who is in the US for the United Nations assembly. Kristol has advised via a piece in his neocon comic that Israel supporters should boycott all of Ahmadinejad’s engagements while visiting the US. Kristol and his Israeli Lobby cronies wouldn’t want anyone to hear about what Ahmadinejad and the Iranian people really have to say about what’s going on in the Middle East.
AHMADINEJAD HAS AT LEAST ONE ISRAELI COMMENTATOR WORRIED!
Shmuel Rosner writing in Ha’aretz reckons that Israel is the big loser over Ahmadinejad’s speech to Columbia University during his visit to the US. He argues that, while there are plenty of Jewish protestors at the university making a lot of noise against him, there are a lot of Americans that are willing to listen and hear him out. It is these that that the Israeli Lobby are really worried about – the protestors are already ‘converted’; most Americans, already fed up with the war in Iraq, may easily shy away from more war against Iran if they are persuaded by Ahmadinejad’s argument that the problem is Israel and only Israel; not the US.
