Mossad Chief: Israel Spying on Iran

…by Jonas E. Alexis

Israel, the problem child in the Middle East, is at it again. Mossad chief Yossi Cohen has recently declared that “We have eyes and ears, even in Iran.”[1]

Does that mean that the Israelis are trying to flesh out a peaceful resolution? Does it imply that they are doing their best to make peace and not war? No. What it means is that the Israeli regime is spying on Iran and spreading categorical lies and deceptive messages. Cohen continues:

“The Iranians are spreading across the Middle East with a vast array of forces, and there is little holding them back.”[2]

The evidence? Well, you just have to believe Cohen. He doesn’t think it is necessary to present serious evidence for his assertion. The statement is axiomatically true because Cohen says so. But the central question here is this: What does Cohen want to accomplish by spreading false claims like this?

Simple: destabilize any peaceful resolution with Iran, provoke unnecessary reactions from Israeli and US officials and citizens, and subvert the political order. The regime in Tel Aviv has done this for years, and Cohen’s statement is no surprise at all. Back in 2015, the Times of Israel reported:

“Right-wing media outlet Israel National News published an opinion piece Tuesday calling on Israel to launch nuclear bombs at Iran and Germany, only days after the outlet came under fire for publishing a piece accusing a war widow of killing her husband over her pro-peace views.

“In the opinion article published Tuesday, the author claims that only through nuclear annihilation of Iran and Germany, with 20 or 30 nuclear bombs each, can Israelis prevent the state’s destruction.”[3]

The interesting thing is that Israel officials have said damning things about Iran and even the West. Keep in mind that it was Israeli military historian and prolific writer Martin van Creveld who declared back in 2003:

“We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets for our air force…. We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that that will happen before Israel goes under.”[4]

Iran has never been able to catch up with the Israelis when it comes to making statements like this. In fact, Iran’s position over the past few decades have been quite modest.[5]

But according to the Zionist media and indeed the Trump administration, it is Iran that is the new bad kid on the block. Israel is the land of democracy and freedom, we are told ad nauseam.

We now know that this is not true. In fact, it has never been true. If former Mossad chief Meir Dagan was right in saying that Iran “is very rational,” then we can dismiss the prevailing notion that Iran is suicidal. Dagan also declared that the Israeli government is “reckless and irresponsible.”[6]

  1. Unusual for an intelligence chief to publicise his coiuntry’s assets – unless he is trying to scare the enemy referred to.

    ‘We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that that will happen before Israel goes under.”

    Mr Cohen speaks as if God will have no say in the matter. With the name, Cohen, you’d think he would know better.

    1. “Mr Cohen speaks as if God will have no say in the matter. With the name, Cohen, you’d think he would know better.”

      With a name like Cohen, he likely believes that God looks to Jews for advice, or he could also be a godless atheist.

  3. It means that the Iranian people have treated Jews and Israel fairly, hoping to avoid the obvious implications of the message of the Babylonian Talmud amongst the Sanayihm (sp?), viz a viz the Iranian People. Clearly, the Sanhedren/Rabbis use so-called “anti semitism” as a tool for unity amonst their clientelle. By selecting Revolutionery Bolshevik Like Patsies to create back lash and then betrayed/dumped/left in the lurch by their “own” (they are really dupes) the Mossad can arouse resentment and victimhood amongst the previously contented merchants and successful businessmen. If the Mossad succeed in getting local artifically incited, disaffected youth to create chaos and rebellion and then get arrested, then they will have achieved the same result as the Internment Camps of another era with people identified as “Aryian”. Meantime, the old age game of the true beneficiaries of the whole Chosen People Facade continues. They become Bankers For The Elite. We have seen it all before. Countless times. The Steward or the Major Domo takes over from the “Divinely Appointed King”, often effete after a few generations of artificially elevated, debt fbricated grandeur. These Puppets are supposed to represent “We The People”. Bankers to the King is the Hallmark of the International Financial One Percent Userers.
