IAEA to Benjamin Netanyahu: Please, Go Away

The IAEA seems to have had enough of Netanyahu’s mumbo jumbo. IAEA chief Yukiya Amano responded to Netanyahu by saying that the IAEA's work "must always be impartial, factual, and professional.”

Benjamin Netanyahu fantastically declared last week that Iran is somehow building “a secret atomic warehouse,”[1] and the only person who has actually seen this secret atomic warehouse is Benjamin Netanyahu himself. What was his evidence? Well, it’s a secret. Netanyahu said:

“Today, I am disclosing for the first time that Iran has another secret facility in Tehran, a secret atomic warehouse for storing massive amounts of equipment and materiel from Iran’s secret nuclear program. They’ve been busy cleaning out the atomic warehouse.

“Just last month they removed 15 kilograms of radioactive material. You know what they did with it? They took it out, and they spread it around Tehran in an effort to hide the evidence.”[2]

Without a single evidence, the mad man from Tel Aviv proceeded to say:

“We cannot allow the world’s leading sponsor of terrorism to possess the planet’s most dangerous weapons. We ask all nations to isolate Iran’s regime as long as its aggression continues. Iran’s leaders sow chaos, death and destruction. Iran’s leaders plunder the nation’s resources to enrich themselves and to spread mayhem across the Middle East and far beyond. The dictatorship used the funds to build nuclear-capable missiles.”[3]

The IAEA seems to have had enough of Netanyahu’s mumbo jumbo. IAEA chief Yukiya Amano responded to Netanyahu by saying that the IAEA’s work “must always be impartial, factual, and professional.” In other words, the IAEA cannot allow Netanyahu to dictate what the IAEA should be doing. We all know that Netanyahu has a history of producing categorical lies as facts to live by.

“It seems that I am not being taken seriously. I need to step up my ideological game really fast.”

For example, in his 1995 book Fighting Terrorism: How Democracies Can Defeat Domestic and International Terrorists, Netanyahu unequivocally posited:

“The best estimates at this time place Iran between three and five years away from possessing the prerequisites required for the independent production of nuclear weapons.

“After this time, the Iranian Islamic republic will have the ability to construct atomic weapons without the importation of materials or technology from abroad…The first phase of construction and electrical work will be completed within three to four years.”[4]

Read those statements again very carefully. According to Netanyahu’s calculation, Iran should have acquired nuclear weapons by 2000. It’s been more than eighteen years and Iran still doesn’t have nuclear weapons. What’s so ironic is that the intelligence community has universally declared that Iran dropped its nuclear programs a long time ago.[5]


But Netanyahu, of course, has never been prepared to deal with that fact because he wants to perpetuate the hoax that Iran is still working towards the development of nuclear bombs. Many leaders reject his dubious and risible proposal, but he is using Trump to get his dirty work done. As journalist Patrick Cockburn has recently put it, “Israel, Saudi Arabia and UAE have an interest in luring the US into fighting Iran, though they are not intending to do much fighting themselves.”[6]

Israel, Saudi Arabia and UAE want to drag the US into more debts, more deaths in the Middle East, and more pain and suffering around the world. “US Gross National Debt Jumps by $1.27 Trillion in Fiscal 2018, Hits $21.5 Trillion.” We must certainly support the IAEA in kicking Netanyahu out of the political equation.

  1. Is it possible that Mr. Alexis hit the nail on it’ head when he said this; “Israel, Saudi Arabia and UAE want to drag the US into more debts …” Maybe all this talk of nukes is nothing more than a distraction, designed to perpetuate America’s gross spending, particularly in the area of defense? Israel shines the spotlight on Iran while deftly picking our pockets. if for a moment you can believe this theory, suddenly Benji the Nut and Yahoo makes perfect sense.

    • No, it’s nothing to do with the US national debt and is far more complex. The plan is to take down Syria, then take down Iran, then take down Russia. They are employing a divide and conquer strategy in the Middle East, turning the Sunni against the Shia, which is a large part of why the Saudis and Gulf states are financing and participating in the plan. This is a major factor driving the anti-Iran nuclear business too as it would be the Saudi’s worst nightmare if there Shia mortal enemies (Iran) became nuclear armed, and remember the Gulf states are sandwiched between Saudi and Iran, so they have a vested interest too.

    • Ian, we followed more one century after, spinning around the old wrong postulate of British deputy Halford Mackinder with his strategy of the ‘containment’ of Russia and China…

    • Yes, geopolitics has several constant themes through the last two centuries; one is the ‘Great Game’ to dominate Central Asia, with the three main players being the Russians and the British (from their Indian colony). The same conflict over that region has cropped up throughout history, the Mongols, the Mughals, the Persians etc. Holding that region places you in the centre of the Eurasian landmass, able to exert influence over all neighbouring nations, to control trade, exploit natural resources etc.

  2. If you want to eliminate international terrorism, Mr. Netanyahoo, step aside and give your Crime Minister seat up for a real Prime Minister

  3. The continued focus must be on the illegal nukes which Israel does possess not the speculated nukes which Iran does not possess. Israel has illegal nukes which it likely stole from the U.S. It refuses international inspections. It refuses to sign the non proliferation treaty. Israel did 9/11/01 to the U.S. but blamed it on Muslims. Netanyahu is an insane propaganda lunatic. Send him into retirement. Israel treats Palestinians like garbage and kills innocent children and women. They steal land from neighbors and illegally build on it. They lie, cheat and steal.
    https://wikispooks.com/wiki/9-11/Israel_did_it The outlaw state of Israel must be occupied by an international armed force, totally disarmed of all weapons, before they blow up the planet and destroy civilization.

    • “The continued focus must be on the illegal nukes…” You are right, but also the next step would be to put the focus on the thousands of Americans throughout the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s who diverted energy to the Israeli’s acquisition program, and who knew details of that, and who tacitly or actively supported it. And to this day, a whole segment of this population hedges their bets, thinking they will have a welcoming homeland to escape to “in case” theirs goes south (once again), like eternal training wheels on a kid’s bicycle. This is a psychological challenge, between the ears, of the heart and mind – and they miss the real issue.

    • Exactly. It amazes me that there are no marches in the streets of Europe demanding inspectors be allowed to thoroughly audit Dimona. The facility is aging. It is located in the most dangerous locale on the planet. Imagine the radioactive dust that would be blown by high winds across Europe and the Mediterranean? The resultant mutation and cancer would be around for decades, and Chernobyl would be a non event compared to the disaster that would be Dimona. Wake up Europeans and North Africans! Remember you cannot believe the Israelis about their nuclear site. Kennedy sent inspectors in the 60’s who were deceived by concrete walls blocking the real activity hidden from them. Kennedy paid the price for opposing Israeli nuclear ambitions with his life.

      Go to the streets and write to your politicians before it is to late.

  4. “As journalist Patrick Cockburn has recently put it, “Israel, Saudi Arabia and UAE have an interest in luring the US into fighting Iran”
    Well, it seems that the Pentagon does not have much interest in fighting neither, because has scaled back its presence in the Persian Gulf region, removing ships, planes and missiles that would be needed in a major confrontation.
