The folly of the Israeli AND Arab approach to Iran

There are a number of bloggers – some of them informed writers with credibility, some of them uninformed, anti-Semitic conspiracy theory nutters – who think the answer is “Yes”. More to the point is that no less a figure than Zbigniew Brzezinski, President Carter’s National Security Advisor, thinks the answer could be “Yes”. He said so in an interview with PBS’s Judy Woodruff and also in a subsequent BBC World Service (Radio) interview. To Judy Woodruff he said:

“The real issue is, who is feeding Wikileaks? They’re getting a lot of information which seems trivial, inconsequential, but some of it seems surprisingly pointed… The very pointed references to Arab leaders could have as their objective undermining their political credibility at home, because this kind of public identification of their hostility towards Iran could actually play against them at home…It’s a question of whether Wikileaks are being manipulated by interested parties that want to either complicate our relationship with other governments or want to undermine some governments… I have no doubt that Wikileaks is getting a lot of the stuff from sort of relatively unimportant sources, like the one that perhaps is identified on the air. But it may be getting stuff at the same time from interested intelligence parties who want to manipulate the process and achieve certain very specific objectives.”

Another way to look at the matter is to ask this question. If a visitor from Outer Space studied the first two days of Wikileak’s revelations, what preliminary conclusion would he (or she) come to?

I think it’s entirely possible that he (or she) would say: “The main message is clear. Iran is the biggest single threat to the peace of the region and the world and not only because the Israelis say so. Arab leaders agree with them. The secondary message is that apart from the Arab leaders who say they share Israel’s assessment, other Muslim leaders, those in Turkey and Pakistan especially, are not to be trusted.”

And here’s another question. Which party benefited most from the first two days of Wikileaks revelations? The obvious answer is the Zionist state of Israel.

I must also confess that I have a nagging worry (small but real) about the possibility that Julian Paul Assange, Wikileaks’ founder, has been compromised in some way and is open to manipulation. My concern on this account is the fact that he is a 9/11 conspiracy denier. He is firmly on the record as saying: “I’m constantly annoyed that people are distracted by false conspiracies such as 9/11, when all around we provide evidence of real conspiracies, for war or mass financial fraud.”

As I have said on public platforms in America and written in a number of articles for the worldwide web, I think there is irrefutable evidence that the Twin Towers were not brought down by the planes and their burning fuel.

My own conclusion at the present time is that I don’t have a conclusion; but I think the question of whether or not Wikileaks is being manipulated, and if so by whom, is worthy of deep and serious investigation.

    The extent of the disconnect between the populations of most Arab countries and their Israel-supporting governments is quite breathtaking too.

    From an Iranian point of view it makes emotional sense to acquire nuclear weapons (Israel already has them), because if America is prepared to bomb a country (Iraq) with no WMD, then the lesson learnt is, you may as well get some to use back.

    A view encouraged by the fact that American troops are on their borders in Afghanistan and Iraq and with the neocons in Washington calling for a ‘pre-emptive’ strike on Iran’s non-existent WMDs – allegedly with Arab support!

    A sense of siege reinforced by Obama’s refusal to show respect for the ancient Persian nation, by holding direct talks.

    But, militarily it is not in Iran’s interest to acquire nuclear weapons and they have said it is against their Muslim faith to do so.

    Getting WMD would weaken Iran, because it would set off an arms race, alarm their neighbours including Russia and Turkey and divert resources away from conventional forces which are more effective weapons! And they would be bombed before they could actually produce a bomb.

    Has Britain benefited in Iraq or Afghanistan, by possessing nuclear weapons? No.

    Iran is a regional power, particularly following the destruction of Iraq, but it is not an imperial power and has repeatedly offered to talk and take part in a comprehensive peace conference to resolve middle east issues.

    But this peaceful approach is rebuffed by the neocons whose motto is, we fear talking, more than we fear war.

    Wasn’t it Saudi fears of Saddam part of the reason (the public reason) for the reckless invasion of Iraq, which benefitted Israeli strategic planners at U.S. expense? This seems like a replay. As for 9-11, no structure like the WTC had ever collapsed from fire. One such structure burned hotter for a week and did not collapse. To have this happen THREE (3) times in close succession is almost beyond the realm of possibility. Remember that WTC 7–not hit with major debris or afflicted by significant fire–collapsed in exactly the same way. And the BBC reported the collapse BEFORE it happened. I suppose the plane destined for it was shot down somewhere in a Pennsylvania field…

  5. Vera Gottlieb:

    Why suspect Iran alone? For that matter, any country that has nuclear reactors would be capable of producing nuclear weapons. And it should be remembered who, for the most part, sold these countries the items required: the USA!

  6. Elandalussii:

    Balanced article, Mr. Hart. You wrote:
    “…It’s a question of whether Wikileaks are being manipulated by interested parties that want to either complicate our relationship with other governments or want to undermine some governments… ”

    May I suggest a third possibility: to force hypocrites arab leaders to follow strictly what US and Zionists want them to do without balking. These “leaks” are a warning to those regimes to let them know that US can bring in the public place what they hide to their people.

  7. majid:
