We MUST Stop Iran!

Israel is waging an intense campaign to drag us into war [against Iran] on their behalf, and they aren’t trying to hide it. What they are intent on hiding, however, is the way in which our Congress, our public officials, and our political culture are being bought off by their proxies. We ship billions to Tel Aviv, and they ship it back to us in the form of propaganda and relentless pressure to bend the White House and Congress to their will.

That’s what’s so “special” about the “special relationship” – the same relationship a tapeworm has to a stomach.

A series of news reports linking Israel's intelligence agency the Mossad to a blast at a military facility in Iran, in which 17 people were killed and a further 15 wounded, has gained widespread coverage in the Israeli media on Monday.

While Iranian officials insist the explosion at the Bid Ganeh base was accidental, caused by the movement of ammunition, claims from anonymous western and Israeli officials that Saturday's blast was a covert Israeli operation have gained momentum.

Hmmmm…If Iran is so hell bent on destroying Israel, as we are constantly being told, then why would they deny that Israel was responsible for the blast?

Leading Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot picked up a post by US blogger Richard Silverstein claiming [unsubstantiated] the Mossad had teamed up with Iranian militant group Mujahideen e-Khalq (MEK) to execute the alleged attack.

Ah, the MEK – the terrorists group that is being supported and defended by many a leading US official? Which makes the denial by the Iranian government all the more at odds with the idea that Iran wants to wipe Israel off the face of the earth, since Iran is currently claiming that the MEK is behind the recent fool’s errand regarding the supposed attempt to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the US.

Leftwing broadsheet Ha'aretz also led with reports that a western intelligence source quoted in Time magazine had claimed the Mossad carried out the attack in an attempt to stall Iran's development of a nuclear weapon.


The blast at the base, which is reported to have been a storage facility for long-range missiles, was so powerful that it was said to be felt 30 miles away in the capital, Tehran.

Among those killed was Major General Hassan Moghaddam, the Revolutionary Guard Commander charged with "ensuring self-sufficiency" in armaments and described by Iranian media as a pioneer in Iranian missile development.

Israel's Defence Minister Ehud Barak responded to news of Moghaddam's death saying: "May there be more like it."

And Iran wouldn’t take this opportunity to use against Israel? I thought they were hot-headed, blood-thirsty devils.

The Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's office refused to comment on growing speculation of the Mossad's involvement. Ilan Mizrahi, former head of the National Security Council and former deputy head of the Mossad, also would not be drawn into substantiating the claims: "I have no idea whether this blast was accidental or whether it was sabotage but I will say God bless those who were behind it because the free world should be doing its best to prevent Iran from achieving nuclear military capability."

Amen. They’re hot-headed, blood-thirsty devils.

Israel has been linked to several previous incidents in Iran similar to Saturday's explosion, including an explosion at a Shahab facility in south-western Iran in 2010 and a bomb attack earlier that year in Tehran, in which Iranian physicist Masoud Ali Mohammadi was killed.

What? And Iran hasn’t retaliated?

....but hey, do what you will anyway.
