Rabbis Against Peace and Stability (Steve Lendman Blog):

by Stephen Lendman
Hundreds of US rabbis (nearly 1,000 as of August 27) signed an open letter – urging Congress to reject the Iran nuclear deal, reducing chances for greater Middle East war if approved, saying:
“We, the undersigned rabbis, write as a unified voice across religious denominations to express our concerns with the proposed nuclear agreement with Iran.”

“We have weighed the various implications of supporting – or opposing – this agreement. Together, we are deeply troubled by the proposed deal, and believe this agreement will harm the short-term and longterm interests of both the United States and our allies, particularly Israel.”

Hedge Fund Manager Kyle Bass: Senior Obama Administration Official Said: ‘We’re Just Going To Kill The Dollar’ (Video)


–  John Kerry Warns “Dollar Will Cease To Be Reserve Currency Of The World” If Iran Deal Rejected (ZeroHedge, Aug 11, 2015):

Scaremongery… or maybe the whole point, as Obama’s former chief economist noted, is to lose reserve status. Take That China!!

As Jared Bernstein previously explained…

There are few truisms about the world economy, but for decades, one has been the role of the United States dollar as the world’s reserve currency. It’s a core principle of American economic policy. After all, who wouldn’t want their currency to be the one that foreign banks and governments want to hold in reserve?

But new research reveals that what was once a privilege is now a burden, undermining job growth, pumping up budget and trade deficits and inflating financial bubbles. To get the American economy on track, the government needs to drop its commitment to maintaining the dollar’s reserve-currency status. Continue reading »

A dirty nuke in New York or D.C. could very well be the plan of TPTB.

And the Mossad and the CIA might (again) do the dirty work for them.

Martial law would be declared and everybody opposing the official version will probably put his or her life at risk.

Israel could use dirty nuke in false flag attack in US: Ex-CIA contractor (PressTV,, July 24, 2015):

Israel is testing dirty nuclear bombs in its deserts which could be used in a “false flag” attack in the United States to implicate Iran, a former CIA and NSA contractor says.

“One has to wonder if they [Israelis] feel that the momentum for realizing ‘greater Israel’ is going away, and if the world opinion is shifting, which clearly it seems to be… [then] we have to be concerned with a false flag attack on the United States in order to justify a retaliatory strike against Iran,” said Steven D Kelley.

“We know that this Israel is actually testing dirty nuclear devices in their desert right now, and we know this has no strategic value other than to be used as a terrorist device in a false flag attack,” he added. “So this is a very dangerous time.”

Kelley made the remarks after Israel’s ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer called on Republicans in Congress to reject the nuclear accord. Continue reading »

Russia-Iran

H/t reader squodgy:

“If Vladimir Putin is half the man he has shown himself to be, this Iran deal with USA is only part of his game play for EU.
The nuke issue is and has always been a play, a charade, but underneath, the problems of the Russian gas restrictions, hint that this ‘agreement’ is once again a cover for giving EU back up for gas via Iran.
In theory therefore it challenges the Russo/Iran alliance, but Vlad is well aware of the game, and three moves ahead.

Iran & Russia know their friends.

FYI.


Iran Is Hiding 51 Million Oil Barrels At Sea, Maritime Tracker Reports (ZeroHedge, July 17, 2015):

With yesterday’s appearance what seems like the first Iran oil tanker to set sail post-nuke-deal, Haaretz reports that Iran has been hiding millions of barrels of oil it never reported to the United States or in the world oil market, according to a company that has developed sophisticated maritime tracking technology. With the world’s fourth-largest oil reserves, Iran denies it’s storing oil at sea, despite reports that surfaced in The New York Times as early as 2012; but Ami Daniel, Windward founder and cochairman, shows the Iranians are taking huge, 280-meter-long ships and filling them with oil, to sit at sea and wait. Because the sanctions allow for production of only three million barrels a day, they began storing the remainder… oil tankers have been sitting in the Gulf for anywhere between three and six months, just waiting for orders.” Continue reading »

– Iranian Oil Exports To Double Following Nuclear Deal (The Oil Price, July 6, 2015):

While not predicting that Tehran and six world powers will strike a deal by the new July 10 deadline, a senior Iranian oil official says his country hopes to nearly double its crude exports immediately if and when sanctions are lifted and hopes that OPEC will accommodate this growth by capping production by the cartel’s other members.

“We are like a pilot on the runway ready to take off,” Mansour Moazami, Iran’s deputy oil minister for planning and supervision, told The Wall Street Journal inTehran on July 5. “This is how the whole country is right now.” Continue reading »

Saudi Ambassador Warns West On Iran Deal: “All Options On Table…” Including Nukes (ZeroHedge, June 9, 2015):

We previously warned of the risks of escalation in The Middle East to something much more dangerous, but, as the Saudi ambassador to UK confirmed today, the risk of Wahhabis going nuclear is even higher than many expected, “…if [Iran will not offer assurances it will not pursue nuclear weapons], then all options will be on the table for Saudi Arabia… Iran’s nuclear program poses a direct threat to the entire region and constitutes a major source and incentive for nuclear proliferation across the Middle East, including Israel.”

Israel planning false flag attack in US to create war with Iran: Ex-US Senate candidate (PressTV, June 2, 2015):

Israel is preparing to carry out a false flag operation in the United States and will blame it on Iran as a strategy to entangle Washington in a war with Tehran, a former US Senate candidate says.

“I have maintained from the beginning that Israel is planning and will in some point attempt a false flag incident probably within the continental United States that will be facilitated by Israeli intelligence and falsely blamed on Iran,” said Mark Dankof, who is also a broadcaster and pastor in San Antonio, Texas.  Continue reading »

6 Iranian food companies get access to Russian market (RT, May 26, 2015):

Russia has given the green light for six Iranian companies to export food to Russia, the country’s food inspector Rosselkhoznadzor has said. Additional conditions guaranteeing complete safety are yet to be signed.

“Two of the companies are poultry and meat producers and the other four are dairy products producers (including cheese). The companies will be allowed to start deliveries only after Iran’s Veterinary Service signs an additional number of protocols on safety conditions due to concerns about bird influenza, Newcastle disease and murrain in the country,” Rosselkhoznadzor said in a statement on Tuesday.

Wahhabis Go Nuclear — Literally. Saudi Arabia’s Bomb? (Global Research, May 24, 2015):

The serious possibility of a nuclear deal between Iran and the P5+1 is only a few weeks away – on June 30.

So guess what the terminally paranoid House of Saud is up to: Lay their hands on a nuclear bomb to counteract the non-existent “Iranian bomb”, which Tehran, via Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei, has consistently abhorred as un-Islamic, and wouldn’t have it anyway because of stringent inspections bound to be part of the final nuclear deal.

The proverbial “former Pentagon official” has leaked to a Rupert Murdoch paper that the House of Saud is bound to buy a ready-made nuclear bomb from Pakistan. The choice of media already offers a clue; Prince Alwaleed bin Talal is one of News Corporation’s leading shareholders.

The “why now?” concerning the leak is pretty obvious. Yet the whodunit is hazier territory. Continue reading »

US Navy Sends Aircraft Carrier, Warships To Intercept Iranian Weapons Shipments In Yemeni Waters (ZeroHedge, April 20, 2015):

Update: Because the report from AP does not play well with “Everyday Americans”, US CentCom is denying:

  • *U.S. DENIES REPORT SHIP SENT TO INTERCEPT IRAN VESSEL
  • *U.S. SAYS SHIP SENT TO KEEP SHIPPING LANES IN REGION OPEN

The ‘proxy’ war is escalating very rapidly. As AP reports, Navy officials confirm that the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt is headed to Yemeni waters to intercept an Iranian weapons shipments. Just as we warned 10 days ago, the probability of a major escalation over the latest proxy Middle Eastern civil war escalated substantially when Iran parked two warships off the Yemeni coast.

As AP details,

U.S. Navy officials say the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt is steaming toward the waters off Yemen and will join other American ships prepared to intercept any Iranian vessels carrying weapons to the Houthi (HOO’-thee) rebels fighting in Yemen. Continue reading »

Barter Agreement Between Russia and Iran Sidesteps Sanctions (Russia Insider, April 16, 2015):

Although Russia claims the agreement on a barter system with Iran was designed in order not to run afoul of the sanctions, the deal still could add further strain in its relations with its fellow P5+1 negotiator

This article originally appeared at Oil Price

An oil-for-goods barter system between Iran and Russia is well under way and is not affected by the sanctions imposed on some trade with Iran because of its nuclear program, according to Russia’s deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov.

So far, the system, designed to last five years, is operating on a “very significant scale,” Ryabkov told legislators on April 13 in Moscow. “In exchange for Iranian crude oil supplies, we are delivering certain products,” he said. “This is not banned or limited under the current sanctions regime.” Continue reading »

Russia Anti-Air Missile Sale Worries Those Who Aren’t Ruling out Bombing Iran — Russian Lawmaker (Russia Insider, April 15, 2015):

Unless you plan to bomb Iran Russia’s sale of S-300 missiles shouldn’t worry you

MOSCOW, April 14 (TASS) – The chairman of the Federation Council’s international affairs committee, Konstantin Kosachev, believes that the worst worries over the supplies of Russian air defense systems S-300 are felt by those who do not rule out the possibility of bombing raids against that country.

“It looks like the supplies of Russian air defense systems S-300 to Iran trouble mostly those who do not rule out their own bombing raids against that country,” Kosachev told the media, adding that it remained to be seen which side (Iran or its opponents) “pose the worst threat to peace.” Continue reading »

Russian President Vladimir Putin has opened the way for Russia’s delivery of a sophisticated air defence S-300 missile system to Iran, a move that would significantly bolster Tehran’s military capability.

US Secretary of State John Kerry objected to Moscow’s decision in a phone call to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, and the White House indicated the move could endanger plans to ultimately lift sanctions on Iran as part of a final nuclear deal. Continue reading »
