Israel’s Rage and Impotence, the Final Days



By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor

Israel is technically defenseless and humiliated. This is not conjecture nor is it a positive thing for prospects of peace. It is entirely the result of Netanyahu’s scheming and game playing and has led to serious escalations across the region. Today, Damascus is being shelled relentlessly. Our bureau personnel are in their homes and hotels, hearing sirens and shells falling.

Yesterday, an Israeli drone was shot down by a Syrian air defense missile of a type Israel was unaware had been deployed. The drone was directing fire from the Yarmouk Camp in South Damascus, Grad rockets and heavy mortars, that are hitting civilian areas across the city. Today an ISIS jihadist captured there described the Israeli fire control officers who are helping target key infrastructure systems, water and electricity. They have been successful.

This is on the heels of two days of Israeli air assaults that included no manned Israeli aircraft. The attacks are drones and artillery only on Syrian army positions across the UNTSO (United Nations Treaty Supervision Organization) lines. The UN has issued no reports of these violations as required by treaty.

Another Curious Explosion in Japan

Israel has two agendas:

  1. They are pushing Syria to use new weapon systems from Russia. If Syria has the weapons Israel believes, including Iskander missiles, Israeli positions on the occupied Golan Heights are now useless.
  2. With the S300 contract ready to be signed, Israel is attacking Syria while planting press stories about Iran attacks they never executed. This is pure impotence and utter idiocy for Netanyahu, showing his hand.

The lack of credible analysis of the situation in the Middle East and the war on ISIS isn’t an accident. Israel has something to hide, a series of major blunders by Netanyahu that have left Israel defenseless despite her massive air force and nuclear arsenal. We may well be in another “August 1914,” a run up to world war. That reference is made time and time again, abused nearly as often as the word “holocaust,” but this time may really be different.

We had said Israel is defenseless, we now make our case:

  • In February 2015, the US took both Iran and Hezbollah off the Terror Watch List. They told Israel it was an administrative error. Iran and Hezbollah are still off the terror watch list some months later.
  • In 2014, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey, a man with little good will for Israel, re-positioned two AEGIS ships to the Black Sea, in violation of treaties. On April 10, 2014, Russia responded by using advanced jamming equipment, disabling one of these ships, the USS Donald Cook. These ships were the backbone of Israel’s Iron Dome air defense system. Note that the US uses AEGIS ships for its anti-missile defense as well. You see, phased array radar is useless unless used at sea.
  • President Obama ordered the disabling of the Iron Dome in response to Netanyahu’s interference in American domestic politics, not just related to Iran but health care, social security, workers rights and other areas.  Netanyahu has been working closely with members of organized crime to crash the American economy to punish President Obama. Those efforts have increased 10 fold since the Iran agreement including moves against China as well including what we are now told was the use of an Israeli tactical nuclear weapon at Tianjin. Ten days after the explosion, IAEA inspectors leaked their initial findings which are being released here for the first time. They list the weapon at 20 kilotons.
  • The Iranian agreement with Russia over the delivery of an S300 air defense system will include, as has been reported by Moscow, sufficient upgrades to guarantee effectiveness against Israel’s nuclear tipped ballistic missiles, any possible tactic developed by the Israeli Air Force and to protect key regions of Iran from Israel’s German-designed and -built Dolphin nuclear cruise missile submarines.
  • On May 2, 2013 at 2:30 AM, Syria sank an Israeli Dolphin submarine using advanced Russian systems. In the past months those systems have been upgraded. Russian ASW (anti-submarine-warfare) systems are designed to work in the Baltic against diesel electric submarines. Iran will now be getting these systems as well, making both the Persian Gulf and Indian Ocean a “hands off” zone for hostile submarines.
  • Iran’s diplomatic inroads with India and Saudi Arabia (to a lesser extent) and their “dance” with Turkey, has outmaneuvered Israel as has the recent opening of the British embassy in Tehran.

Netanyahu’s Disaster Scenario

Israel feels it is pushed to take out Iran using nuclear weapons. However, it has no platform to reliably deliver them, as its medium range and ICBM missiles are easily shot down by the S300. Israel then is forced to go after “soft targets” — India, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, China, or perhaps as also seen in recent days, France.

This kind of thinking that worked so well on 9/11 no longer plays.

Were Iran to have need to respond to an Israeli provocation, even if the Iron Dome were a reality, which it is not, Israel would be destroyed in hours. Iran is simply too powerful and has, quite intelligently, manufactured thousands of medium range missiles that carry conventional payloads of some size. Worse still, through bombing Gaza, Syria and other precedents such as the Saudi air war on Yemen, after such a missile attack — even if Tel Aviv and Haifa were flattened to the ground, which they would be in hours — the international reaction would be muted.

Nobody cares anymore.

The US, no matter who or what is elected in 2016, will only stand and watch. America saw what interference brought in 1973, oil embargo and economic collapse. With Russia and China where they are today, there is no potential for American response, not even if Trump is in the oval office.

The media will simply underplay and ignore, as they have done for Israel so many times. The shoe will be on the other foot.

  1. [Sorry could not comment under Ian’s Tianjin articles] Not “Ulman”, but Stanisław Marcin ULAM, pronounced [‘staɲiswaf ‘mart͡ɕin ‘ulam]; 13 April 1909 – 13 May 1984), a Polish-American mathematician. He participated in America’s Manhattan Project, originated the Teller–Ulam design of thermonuclear weapons, invented the Monte Carlo method of computation, and suggested nuclear pulse propulsion. Studied mathematics at the Lwów Polytechnic Institute (“The Polish School of Mathematics”, he mathematics community that flourished in Poland in the 20th century, particularly during the Interbellum between World Wars I and II, i.e. Banach was part of it), where he earned his PhD in 1933 under the supervision of Kazimierz Kuratowski. In 1935, John von Neumann, whom Ulam had met in Warsaw, invited him to come to the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey, for a few months. From 1936 to 1939, he spent summers in Poland and academic years at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he worked to establish important results regarding ergodic theory.

  2. The idea that people brought out couches, lawn chairs, barbecue equipment to watch the carnage in Gaza from the nearest hillside tells you something. And something like 94% of the public approved of the attacks.

  3. It seems as if the conventional false-flags (non-nuclear) no longer get the public opinion shaped the way they want, so each successive attack must be larger and more dramatic with more losses of innocent lives.

    The Charlie, Boston, CT attacks didn’t seem to do the trick. People of all stripes and talents diagnosed and revealed what real happened. With a nuke being as dramatic, and terrorizing, it makes the public believe no own would use such a thing in a false-flag.

    What can cause this type of destruction and get the public’s attention better than nukes.


    “Nobody cares anymore.” “The international reaction would be muted.”
     __ It looks like it, when Ignoring Israel UK Opening Embassies (Simultaneously _for Maximum Shock)
     __France, Switzerland, Germany, etc., Signing all kinds of Economic Deals”
    “The US, no matter who or what is elected in 2016 will only stand and watch.”
    “With Russia and China where they are today, there is no potential for American response, not even if Trump is in the oval office.”
     __I hope it’s Dr. Rand Paul, Senator (R-KY)_ NO WAR_ Clean-up of Federal Reserve, etc.,

    • iI;ll bet a lot of people around the world would actually like to see the Israeli’s and their brethren get taken out but are just afraid to say so.

  5. “Mega dittos” as they say…The crime syndicate hide-out masquerading as a country needs to go. Talmudia MUST be destroyed if the rest of the world is to have ANY hope.

  6. Odd, that the IAEA inspectors would leak their findings in such a way that outlets like VT could spread the word… and at huge (we imagine) risk to themselves too. Does this mean officially the findings will never be announced? I wonder what will be the fall out ( if any) from this leak? Will China ignore the leak the way Syria did in 2013 to a similar assessment at Homs? Will China stick to the accident theory?

  7. ty john for “Bibi Amin”, I do hope my little coinage goes VIRAL.
    his actions HAVE killed multiple millions of people directly or indirectly,
    making his little brother from another mother look like a rank amateur.
    USS Liberty, 911, Fukushima, Damascus nuked, Yemen nuked..
    Libya and more in Africa, AIPAC-ADL owning “politicians” and mass media,
    DHS-TSA police training and false flag staging, all barely scratching the surface!

  8. may izrahell reap what it has sown..
    they haven’t given a crap about innocents their actions have killed,
    the “favor” CAN be returned similarly, and it does mean flattened, overwith, done.
    it can be re-populated with true semites with their right to return long denied by izrahell.
    racist apartheid genocidal welfare warfare terrorist “state”, I’m tired of hearing about it.
    anti-CRIMINAL is NOT “anti-semitic”, especially when these criminals are NOT semite!

    • it might sound radical-genocidal but what can be done with reports of “palestinians” joining ISIS then Bibi Amin’s government and press reporting Egypt wanting Gaza bombed again because they might have terrorists there? it seems human shield and scapegoat both whenever at whim, is not surprising from psychopathic liars, and meantime they have been made to suffer indefinitely by the terrorists occupying them. the US is bankrupt but never too bankrupt for the District of Criminals to hand them billions every friggin year and stopping ANY form of reprimand to the parasitic welfare-warfare criminal “state”.

  9. True!

    However, Bibi is not the top dog pulling the strings. He has done extensive wrestling with Shin Beth´ and Mossad to get some kind of power position but there are other higher up who do not really trust him and from time to time manipulate him. It is their plan that really matters…

    • You must be talking about those who are higher up on the hierarchy echelon in the Rothschild Khazarian Mafia.

  10. Don’t forget the deliberate attack on the USS Liberty after Israel positively identified her at 6 am. 8 hours before the attack.

    The first Israeli Noratlas Maritime surveillance plane flew over the Liberty at 6 am. What has been described as a perfect time for taking the photos it was designed to take.

    There followed at least 5 more flights by Israeli planes. 2 by the Noratlas and three by fighter jets. I read that they were sighting the radio aerials they had to destroy. US radio signals were jammed rather than Egyptian. . .

    It is without question, all the pilots had to have seen the massive radio dish capable of bouncing signals off the moon.

    And Israel maintains that they thought the Liberty as an “Egyptian Horse carrier” a quarter of the Liberties size.

    It is far past time that the US sailors killed and the sailors injured in that traitorous attack received justice. They have been abandoned by US politicians and, more shamefully, by the US military for far too long.

    • McCain’s daddy instrumental in it’s coverup and Songbird Johnny now some kind of SICK career “politician” who cannot be dislodged as part of the reward I suppose.. who has a history of covering up Vietnam Veterans who may STILL be POW’s even today. pardoned for treason and nonstop treasonous ever since, 100% proof that elections are rigged. a photo-op with terrorists in Syria, making “deals” about natural gas to Ukraine when he’s supposedly a STATE REP having zero business being involved in anything global but never reprimanded.. apparently there is no stopping the sawed off frankenstein troll mofo.

    • I had read the US Military did respond in a non-public way, destroying some Israeli Military assets, not nearly enough, but some.

  11. “Israel has something to hide, a series of major blunders by Netanyahu” .. .. Netanyahu was positioned for a mission…
    Bibi told to bring on the “Moshiach”…. 1990 was Bibi busy with the “progressing” israels stolen nuclear weapons arsenal and had his hands on it?…Bibi the “miracle worker” who can “bring on the Mochiach”… the 9/11 miracle when all the jews were saved who were forewarned … Bibi helped that miracle too….
    Rebbe to Bibi “ try to bring him today!”… “bringing him” attached to nuclear not supernatural access… long planned, long awaited and time is not on their side, nor the rest of the planet…the manufacture of “miracles” in order to justify an abomination that causes desolation standing on holy ground……. step away from the curb

  12. I am very certain that this cabal is starting ALL of the wildfires on the west coast. Additionally they are using the HAARP system, in conjunction with chemtrails, to keep up a high pressure system so that no rains are allowed to occur. That is why California is in a serious drought.

  13. But, but, “they” will still control world media, finance, hollyweird, the UK, the DHS, state department, publishing, academia (Ivy Leauge), etc, etc, etc.

  14. “They list the weapon at 20 kilotons.”

    Can we clarify this please? That is closer to the size of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The stolen W54 pits (Davy Crockett) from Pantex are actually 10 to 20 TONS. If a 20 kt device went off at Tianjin at ground level, then there would be one hell of a crater. Did I miss something? Missing photos of Tianjin by any chance?

  15. You know, if it were any other country that did 10% of what Israhell has done and still do to America, would they still be around today? Obviously not.

  16. Reportedly Nutty-yahoo built (with American funds) the world’s largest (?) nuclear bomb shelter in Tel

    Aviv to house 90,000 elite Israelis. Does Nutty-yahoo think he’s prepared for World War III?

  17. “The US, no matter who or what is elected in 2016, will only stand and watch.”

    What happens to the dual-citizen traitors in the US if the “shitty little state” goes up in flames?

  18. The thing that cannot be ignored – ever – is that Israel did 9/11 and in so doing declared war on the United States and other nations whose citizens it destroyed like 120 Canadians. Watch the innocent jumping out of the buildings to their deaths.

    It was a formal declaration of war on the United States, Canada and other nations and so now Israel must be destroyed. There has been nothing else on the table since 9/11. Nothing! Absolutely nothing!

    There will never be anything else on the table, in the future, except the total destruction of Israel.

    • agree kaasbaas, there IS a point where terrorist threat is meaningless,
      and you DO go for the throat regardless. Samson Option whether a bluff
      or not doesn’t matter, better to go in a big flash than live as slave to these luciferian bastards falsely hiding behind race religion and promise of some “God” who would NEVER approve of their “plans” for full spectrum dominance and genocide.

    • Not everyone in the CIA, NSA, or Military were in on it. Just a few well placed wolves in sheep’s clothing were. The other little girls in those departments, charged with our protection, should be reminded they took an oath, and it’s not the oath that’s important, it’s doing what’s right that’s important. universal-rights dot com, ReVision
