- US National Security Agency (NSA) ‘spies on US for Israel’ (PressTV, by Gordon Duff, Dec 2, 2013):
An American company bids on a military project in Africa. It finds its prime competitor is an Israeli company that submitted not just a superficially identical proposal but the same typographical and syntax errors as well.
The Anti-Defamation League publishes the names of Americans invited to Iran for a film festival. Ten days later, Iran contacts the same journalists asking if they would be interested in attending.
The source of this information was the National Security Agency (NSA), in this case, not just spying on Iran or American journalists but American defense contracting firms, and doing so on behalf of foreign competitors.
- Officals: Israelis in secret trip to inspect Saudi bases. Could be used as staging ground for strikes against Iran (Klein Online, Nov 24, 2013):
TEL AVIV — Israeli personnel in recent days were in Saudi Arabia to inspect bases that could be used as a staging ground to launch attacks against Iran, according to informed Egyptian intelligence officials.
The officials said Israel, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan and other Arab and Persian Gulf countries have been discussing the next steps toward possible strikes on Iran’s nuclear sites.
The officials said the U.S. passed strong messages to Israel and the Saudis that the Americans control radar capabilities over the skies near Iran and that no strike should be launched without permission from the Obama administration.
It was unclear whether the purported visit to Saudi Arabia by Israeli military and intelligence officials signals any real preparation for a strike or if the trip was meant to keep pressure on the West amid Israeli fears about the current deal with Tehran.
- Netanyahu: Iran nuclear deal endangers Israel, we will defend ourselves (Haaretz, Nov 24, 2014):
Economy Minister Naftali Bennett, meanwhile, said that Israel was not obligated to adhere to the agreement reached with the Iran, “to a deal that endangers its existence.”
The State of Israel has the right to defend itself and is capable of doing so, Bennett said in an interview with Army Radio, warning that if Iran gets a nuclear bomb, it meant that Saudi Arabia and Syria could also, setting in motion the chance of a fully nuclear Middle East.
“The bad deal that was signed gives Iran exactly what it wanted – a serious lessening of sanctions as well as preserving the most significant parts of its nuclear program,” Bennett added. “If in another five years a suitcase nuke explodes in New York or Madrid, it will be because of the deal that was signed this morning. There’s a long path ahead, and we will continue to act on all levels.”
A suitcase nuke exploding in New York or Madrid?
Who would be stupid enough to do that? Certainly not Iran.
Cui bono? Certainly not Iran.
“Iran has not started a war in over 300 years.”

- Isolated Israel denounces Iran deal (Sky News, Nov 24, 2013):
Isolated and angry with its ally the United States, Israel has bitterly denounced a ‘bad’ nuclear deal between world powers and Tehran while repeating its threat of military action against Iran.
Hours after Iran agreed with the P5+1 group – the United States, China, Russia, France, Britain and Germany – to row back some of its nuclear activities in exchange for limited sanctions relief, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu charged that ‘what was achieved in Geneva is not a historic agreement but rather a historic mistake’.
- At least seven Israeli airstrikes hit Gaza Strip (PressTV, Nov 19, 2013):
The Israeli regime has carried out several airstrikes on the besieged Gaza Strip, but there have been no immediate reports of casualties.
According to Palestinian sources, Israeli warplanes launched at least seven airstrikes in the north and south of the coastal enclave on Tuesday.
- Israel Working With Saudi Arabia On Iran “Contingency” Attack (ZeroHedge, Nov 16, 2013):
When last week’s Iran nuclear talks were blocked by France, it provided a useful glimpse into just who it was that would benefit politically from a continuation of the regional confrontation. But while the French sabotage was an amusing distraction, it revealed a curious shift in middle-east alliances, namely old “enemies” Israel and Saudi Arabia, both feeling shunned by Big Brother, suddenly becoming the best of buddies. It was only a matter of time before this novel alliance moved beyond just paper and tested how far it could go in real life. Said test may come far sooner than expected: according to the Sunday Times, Israel’s Mossad and Saudi Arabia are planning an attack against Iran if negotiations and talks don’t come to an agreement, and that Saudia Arabia will permit Israel to use their air space for an attack on Iran including full technical support.
According to the Sunday Times, the Saudis would assist an Israeli attack by cooperating with the use of drones, rescue helicopters, and tanker planes. “Once the Geneva agreement is signed, the military option will be back on the table. The Saudis are furious and are willing to give Israel all the help it needs,” said the paper citing an unnamed official.
- Again: all US talk on ‘Iran’s nuclear program’ are OBVIOUS lies (Washington’s Blog, Nov 13, 2013):
As US “leaders” threaten more unlawful war on Iran, the following three points document that the ongoing “reasons” to war-murder Iranians are known lies as they are being told. In context, we know now from official US government reports that all “reasons” for war on Iraq were known to be lies as they were told:
- President Obama lied to Israeli media a week before his March 2013 visit: “We think it would take over a year or so for Iran to actually develop a nuclear weapon.” This repeated claim is a lie because it opposes all 16 US intelligence agencies’ most current official National Intelligence Estimate (NIE – these are updated when intelligence suggests status change), all IAEA official reports from their full-time monitoring of all Iran’s nuclear material and plants, and several definitive official US reports, all while Mr. Obama and other war-mongering liars provide zero evidence to support this claim. This follows a long history of such lies. When a person makes a claim in defiance of all known objective evidence, and without any evidence of his own, any rational person conservatively concludes the claim is a known lie. Continue reading »
- America and Israel Created a Monster Computer Virus Which Now Threatens Nuclear Reactors Worldwide (Washington’s Blog, Nov 12, 2013):
Even Threatens the International Space Station
In their obsession to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons, the U.S. and Israel created a computer virus (called “Stuxnet”) to take out Iran’s nuclear enrichment machinery.
The virus appears to have spread to other countries.
