Jerusalem Post – Giulio Haas, the Swiss envoy to Iran, showed the image during a speech to hundreds of Swiss and Iranian business people at a Zurich hotel on Thursday.

Switzerland expressed regret on Friday after its ambassador to Iran displayed a cartoon depicting two doves defecating on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s head, at an event promoting Iranian business opportunities.

Ambassador Giulio Haas showed the image during a speech to hundreds of Swiss and Iranian business people at a Zurich hotel on Thursday.

The Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA) said the “questionable cartoon” was used without its knowledge. “The FDFA regrets the use of this cartoon and considers it tasteless,” it said in a statement.

Haas’ address came as Europeans race back to Iran, whose markets and major reserves of oil and gas will be much easier to tap once sanctions are lifted under a global deal struck last month.

In his speech, Haas called Iran the “pole of stability in a very, very unsafe region.” He urged Swiss businesses not to delay their endeavors in Iran, a potentially lucrative market with a population of 80 million.

“Ambassador Haas did not intend to insult anybody with the cartoon,” the FDFA said. “If that is the case, however, he regrets it and seeks the pardon of everyone who could have felt insulted.”

The cartoon, a commentary on responses to the deal Tehran struck on July 14 with world powers to limit its nuclear work in return for sanctions relief, shows a pair of doves with US and Iranian flags on their chests atop Netanyahu’s head.

Netanyahu opposes the pact, saying it will be ineffective and allow Israel’s enemy to expand its regional influence.

At Thursday’s event, Haas displayed the image of the cartoon on an enormous screen, under the title “Iran: now or never.”

“What this picture shows is, I think now is really the opportunity to assess the market,” he said.

In the United States, where Iran has long been seen as a regional menace, Congress has until Sept. 17 to vote on the nuclear deal.

Switzerland lifted some sanctions on Iran this month, though most remain.

Haas urged those gathered in Zurich, including representatives from power products maker ABB, Swiss bank UBS and farm-equipment maker Bucher Industries , not to delay efforts open up to Iran.

Switzerland and Israel have at times had fraught relations.

In 2009, Israel recalled its ambassador to Switzerland to protest a UN conference in Geneva attended by then-President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Israel has also complained to Switzerland in the past about its purchase of natural gas from Iran.

In 1998, Swiss banks reached a $1.25 billion deal with Holocaust survivors and their descendants over the fate of funds deposited in Swiss banks by Jews during World War Two.

The Israeli embassy on Friday did not immediately return a request for comment on Haas’ use of the cartoon.

  1. ARREST THE BEAST campaing must be supported by all in the Isles.
    Cameroon acts as an apologist to his tribal kin but we know well that War Criminals can not hide behind Diplomatic Immunity and a precedence was set at Nuremberg.

  2. Now that I have written a lot of drivel here that could be mistakenly construed as ‘hate-crime’ because whatever I have said here is true ! So people do not be afraid to state what is true !
    Lets go point by painful point:

    1. Talmud a religious book ?
    No way, unless we revise the definition of religion. Proof ? The Talmudia itself, let it speak
    for itself. But of they wont let it speak for itself, that’s the beauty of it, it is the most Hidden book
    on this planet !

    2. Jews have the right to live in England ?
    No way. A King’s decree that was never revoked is technically binding regardless of the desire of Parliament.
    By the way the British Parliament was deceived by being presented with a book the Jews were not using, the
    Torah. Were the Parliament actually presented by the Talmud instead of the Torah it would have caused
    an uproar. “A Rabbi is to be obeyed more than the Almighty God ?” Thats what the Talmud is saying
    among other unmentionable claims and savage sexual deviancy. The Parliament would have thrown the whole
    congress of Jews out.
    more..

    • Next time we will talk about their desperate attempt of appearing morally higher than everyone else by fouling-up the morals of everyone else so that the dwarfs appear taller, so to speak.

  3. And you would think they would revoke their Order of British Excesses post-humously but no, as he is a role model for the fallen for them.

  4. For a people that were constanlty being enslaved throughout history by one nation or another,and mostly denied equal citizenry due to their extreme sociopathy and inability to blend in in ANY society unless as blood-sucking parasites literally, for such a people to claim special dispensation from Heaven as a special and a chosen people only belies the extreme lengths their inferiority complexes have taken as well as of those that assist them in spreading such rumours.

    “Those Jews who seek a universal and ethical existence must search for a path on their own as individuals.”
    – Gilad Atzmon
    As everyone else, I must add.

    • dont forget the hundreds of countries they were driven out of for child abduction ritual sacrifice murder theft lies etc.. that their “holy books” say is all ok and if WE don’t like it we are just persecuting racists?!

    • Apparently it were that traitor mammon-loving Wellington who conned The Parliament by convincing them
      that the Jews were a peace-loving and a Godly people as can be verified by the contents of the Torah all the
      while concealing the fact that Jews pay scant regard to the Torah, as their holy of holies is that Hell-forged
      infernal tome of a book the vile Talmud of which even Satan may not be irredeemable enough to have
      authored it, hence it were authored by the supreme elders of the fallen, the Rabbis themselves.
      The Parliament was convinced and the Jews were allowed to slither back in and the rest is history.
      But were they shewn the Talmud instead of the Torah on that day then surelly no Jewish paw would have ever set foot on the Albion isles forever.

  5. The Bank for International Settlements (BIS) and Israel, the cabal’s go-to “action agent” for dirty tricks, are integral parts of the RK Mafia’s structure. The BIS’s main role is in setting rules or laws on how Central Banks are to co-operate in conducting Rothschild’s financial empire. The BIS ensures the smooth-running monetary system of control – the long-standing and prime enabler for the Cabal’s agenda of Global Dominance.

    On the other hand, Likudist extremism, ever-increasing Zionist crimes, these and more have been compounded by Netanyahu’s worsening megalomania (doubting it’s an act) and this has created a pebble-in-the-pond ripple of alarm throughout an ever-expanding globally aware community. This Cabal knows this. Maybe this is why the BIS is calling for a shift to a longer-term focus in policy-making with the aim of restoring sustainable and balanced growth. Irregardless, Netanyahu’s actions have hurt their ’cause’ and he’ll probably be dismissed. I figure a good old fashioned Sicilian-styled dismissal won’t bother too many of his antagonists. Yes, Bibi’s fate probably rests in the hands the Basel Committee… just how cold are they?

  6. WWII history evidences that Swiss banks have behaved like the money changers in the temple, whom Jesus chastized. Yet, the Swiss do not own the six corporations that own 90% of the broadcast media. Nor have either the Swiss or Iranians exploded mini-nukes from NYC to China. Neither the Swiss nor Iranians own 200 military bases scattered around the globe, nor do they have a “Secret Team _ _ ” that conducts false flags around the world and which with input from Tel Aviv owns a private army that is currently designated as ISIS. Neither do the Swiss nor Iranians have a puppet in the White House that is committing treason on various fronts and permitting the support of ISIS via funds from Saudi Arabia and Black Budgets within the NDAA, and resupplying ISIS via the US military. However, Swiss banks should STOP laundering funds that go to ISIS. http://www.dcclothesline.com/2015/05/04/special-ops-officer-blows-whistle-on-cia-funding-isis-through-swiss-bank-accounts/

    • agree with you and masster about that, there is a LOT there and other places too that the blood dope money funding is funneled through, in dire need of inspection and exposure! criminals ID’d and dealt with, their “money from nothing” (moreso dope and death of course) completely ERASED as “bogus zero’s and one’s” might go a long way to reducing “national deficits” and re-valuating the (phony yes but anyway) currency already existing. legalizing the DOPE would cause them bankruptcy quickly too, I understand SOME people would go nuts doing the dirt cheep drugs and waste themselves right out of OUR way while serving as example why to NOT do dope, which isn’t happening now as things are “established” by the criminals who DONT want it legal, to protect their racket and profits.

  7. a hole in Bibi Amin’s head with lies pouring in to spill out his mouth might be accurate.
    Bibi Amin with a butcher knife hacking at Gaza and Syria with made in USA steroid money being pumped into his (blank) as his other hand is on a samson option button..
    Bibi Amin slaughtering unarmed people with a stumbling blindfolded United NAZI-ons nearby..
    Bibi Amin biting the heads off doves of peace while holding DC on a dog leash..
    DC handing him money begging for more “food” as he squats and craps on their heads..
    -all just a start for “political cartoons” maybe?

    • “…the famous Charlie work of Jesus on a cross in a glass of urine…”

      I believe you mean the 1987 “Piss Christ” by Andres Serrano.

  8. Switzerland is the treasury for the dirtiest money in the world. No matter how drastic are their local policies for a clean environment, that country stinks.

  9. I hope we have some honest economists that will be tracking Iran’s international trade deals and how much they will be contributing to the economic health of various countries and their influence on lower Oil and Gas prices once their output is increased. Hard numbers could make believers out of many who had previously bought the propaganda.
