Russia has done it again. They have recently declared that they are not in favor of obliterating the Zionist state. At the same time, they made it very clear that they are not following Israel’s incessant lies about Iran. Sergey Lavrov in particular declared:
“We do not agree with attempts to address any regional problem through the prism of the objective to fight against Iran.”
As we have relentlessly argued in the past, Iran is not the most dangerous country in the world. One can categorically say that Israel is more dangerous than any country on the planet. Israel’s colossal aggression against the Palestinians is well known among Jewish academics and scholars, but the Zionist regime in Israel has convinced the Western world that the true enemy of the world is Iran, while simultaneously planning, by May 2010, to place a permanent submarine station carrying nuclear cruise missiles in the Persian Gulf.
Iran is not an existential threat to the Jewish people at all. We know that for almost three thousand years, Jewish artifacts of all kinds have played a vital role in Iran among the Jewish community, where they largely enjoyed the ambiance.
Back in 1992, Netanyahu and Shimon Peres said that Iran was close to having nuclear bombs, and soon enough Zionist puppets such as Donald Rumsfeld marshaled the same stupid arguments in 1998. The international community may have had some reservations as to where Netanyahu was going, but they too had to face the wrath of Netanyahu, the foreign potentate.
Once that happened, the president of the United States had to call Netanyahu and beg for mercy, saying that he is in accord with Netanyahu with respect to Iran, despite the fact that a war with Iran without the license of self-defense would be considered an international crime. Even when countries such as India and Pakistan were gaining nuclear warheads, the United States and the Neoconservative machine said nothing.
Does Iran have that kind of power? Can any Iranian official run a “conservative political ad” like Netanyahu did during presidential elections in the United States? Does Iran have the political power to convince the Western world to put sanctions on another country like Israel does?
The answer is a resounding no. Only Israel—and King Bibi in particular—has that kind of power. As we have already argued elsewhere, Iran signed the Non-Proliferation Treaty, but Israel didn’t; Iran allows inspections, Israel does not allow any inspections whatsoever. Israel does not even want to discuss the issue.
