‘NYT’ gives big platform to Israeli journalist to espouse Israeli attack on Iran with OK from Uncle Sam
(Mondoweiss) -- by Philip Weiss --
The New York Times Magazine runs a long piece by Ronen Bergman, an Israeli journalist, saying Israel will attack Iran soon because it must. The piece is pushy: it contains the hope/promise that the U.S. will give a "flickering green light" to this attack, as it did to Israel's attack on Egypt that set off the 1967 War.
Why on earth should the U.S. do such a thing?
Bergman's "Israeli perspective," as he describes it, turns out to be a fearful one, and lacking in all proportion-- and offered by a journalist who has reportedly called Iran the world's "number one terrorist power." When will cooler heads prevail? This piece is highly reminiscent of Jeffrey Goldberg's piece in the Atlantic in 2010, envisioning an inevitable strike, and rationalizing it on the basis of Netanyahu's fears of another Holocaust, and saying the U.S. must be on board. Bergman:
After speaking with many senior Israeli leaders and chiefs of the military and the intelligence, I have come to believe that Israel will indeed strike Iran in 2012. Perhaps in the small and ever-diminishing window that is left, the United States will choose to intervene after all, but here, from the Israeli perspective, there is not much hope for that. Instead there is that peculiar Israeli mixture of fear — rooted in the sense that Israel is dependent on the tacit support of other nations to survive — and tenacity, the fierce conviction, right or wrong, that only the Israelis can ultimately defend themselves. --...LINK
Chris Moore comments:
The reason the Israelis want the green light from the U.S. to attack Iran is so the Zionist can get the ball rolling, and then withdraw into their bunkers and let the U.S. soldiers do the fighting and dying.
That way, the fifth column of Israel lobby bought-off whores who occupy Congress and the White House can say: We didn't start the war, the Israelis did. But they're our #1 ally, so we have to come to their aid and do the fighting.
This is what happens when a country allows a fascist Diaspora nation of Jews to infiltrate, corrupt and co-opt it; this is what happens when a defective generation of Judeo-Christian Zionists and Judeophile liberal reprobates and Jesus-hating degenerates (yes, that includes the pseudo-Christian, warmongering evangelicals who screech in rage and boo in loud chorus at the public recitation of Jesus' Golden Rule) climbs into bed with demonic Zionist Jews.
Not only is the treasonous Diaspora nation of Israel-first Jewish Zionists a mortal menace to America, but so are its legions of Goyim whores, useful idiots, lackeys, and partners in fascist crime and theft, who are busy plundering the U.S. as well as the Mideast.
These P.I.G.S. (People Ingratiated to Satan) need to be torn from the seats of power, root and branch, and replaced with America-first patriots. And they know it.
No wonder they're busy constructing a totalitarian state -- to keep American patriots from getting at their throats.
These P.I.G.S. will cling to power until they're put on trial for treason, and finally cut deep as lawful punishment for treason, guillotine style.
