Israel Intelligence Minister Steinitz Incites U.S. to Apply Pressure on Iran to the Point it Threatens Its “Total Economical Collapse”2

The hypocritical double standard of Israel’s relentless incitement against Iran based on fear and hate mongering falsehoods is beyond the scandalous state and knows no limits and therefore must be dismissed while an innovative solution must and can be devised.
Israel sits on illegally occupied Palestinian territory, carries out provocations after provocations against the legitimate inhabitants of Palestine, both of which amount to serious international law violations involving invasions, occupations, and massacres which go back to 1948. All of these are issues which the International Criminal Court must address. All of these issues must be taken in consideration of the fact that Israel’s transgressions, particularly after 1967 were carried out with the U.S. as its enabler, given that Israel has been the recipient to this day of an average of about $ 20 million dollars per day of our taxpayer’s funds.
As a result of a secret agreement between our disgrace President Nixon and Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir in 1969, Israel started to clandestinely develop a huge arsenal of nuclear weapons of mass destruction, and since it refused to acknowledge what our own CIA is documentably aware of, namely that Israel has these weapons in its arsenal, and that since it did not sign on to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) it went on to for a period of about 10 years in the 1980’s to proliferate said technology of the weaponization of nuclear energy to the odious, racist, Apartheid regime of South Africa, presumably for it to threaten or use them on the former Portuguese colony of Angola.
One of the most relevant documentation sources for this allegation is found in the embodiment of a book by a Jewish author named Sasha Polakow-Suransky and it is titled “The Unspoken Alliance : Israel’s Secret Relationship With Apartheid South Africa”.
Ad to this incredible juxta position of historical realities, the fact that both, former President Reagan, and former Vice President Dick Cheney, supported not only the odious white supremacist Apartheid regime of South Africa, but the latter became actively involved in opposing the release of Nelson Mandela from prison, falsely characterizing him as a “terrorist”.
This was happening while decent congressmen and congresswomen drafted the Comprehensive Anti-Apartheid Act , a bill that called for tough sanctions on South Africa, and for the repeal of apartheid laws and the release of political prisoner, Nelson Mandela.
These historical facts are amply documented and summarized by, inter alia, The Huffington Post in an article dated December 5, 2013
Fast forward now to November 25, 2014, and notwithstanding apparently sincere efforts by President Obama to engage the reformist recently elected President Rouhani of Iran, the vicious and dishonest anti-Iran hate and fear mongering vilification campaign by neocons, and the misleading Israeli Zionist power structure of PM Netanyahu, continues unabated ad nauseam and ad absurdum.
Iran has not been an aggressor in the Middle East in the last century but in 1953 by an agreement between Churchill and Eisenhower, its democratically elected government of the Tudeh (socialist party) of Mossadegh was destabilized and crushed and subsequently the tyranny of Shah Pahlavi was imposed on the people of Iran. Eventually the Iranian people were destined to joint forces to cast themselves off the yoke of this tyranny with its terrorizingly suppressive Savak secret police repression policies.
Today, Iran is being accused without evidence, that because it is developing, legally as a signatory to the NPT treaty, a program of energy generation and medical application based on the use of nuclear technology refined to the 5% level for energy generation and to the 20% level for medical applications, that it “may” eventually refine it to the 90% level for weaponization applications.
While Iran and the P5+1 group of nations are making progress in rendering its legitimate process of nuclear energy generation totally transparent by intrusive AEIA inspections, Netanyahu and company is engaged daily in a frenetic, obsessive, and bizarre campaign to sabotage these negotiations simply because Iran has recovered from the U.S. supported aggression on it by Saddam Hussein from 1980 to 1988, and has since then embarked on a journey of becoming a major constructive player player in the region.
Netanyahu who was caught on video and sound bragging to a family of illegal settlers in occupied Palestine that he was proud to have scuttled the promising Oslo Peace talks , has been inciting daily against successful diplomacy between the U.S. and Iran to address its concerns about the Iranian program for the peaceful use of nuclear energy. The Iranians have become most collaborative in this process.
On November 25, 2014, the bellicose rhetoric based on falsehoods and hate and fear mongering by the Netanyahu regime was ratcheted up further with a declaration by Israeli Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz who suggested that “The pressure on Iran was… not enough…” adding further that “You have to increase the economical pressure…if the Iranians want to save their economy from total collapse…” These threatening statements were reported by William Booth in an article published by The Washington Post on November 25, 2014.
All along Mr. Netanyahu badgers continuously President Obama, threatening to take military action on Iran if the U.S. does not follow through his directives. He even has demonstrated the audacious temerity to come to the U.S. congress to lobby against our President’s diplomacy with Iran.
It goes without saying that the U.S. must drastically reassess and reform its irrational, counter-productive, and dangerous policy of unconditional support of Israel as a matter which is essential to our own national interests and security as we have become totally isolated in the false notion that somehow Israel is an “exceptionalist” case. There is no such thing as exceptionalism when it comes to equal rights and obligations under international law in the times we live in.
In fact, as Israel has now become the “other” only racist Apartheid state in the world after its allied South African Apartheid regime was peacefully dissolved with the help of sanctions, the same policies which lead to the demise of the fist Apartheid state would enhance a resolution in the conflict in the present Apartheid state, avoiding bloodshed and infrastructure destruction.
The dissolution is the solution and it comes in the embodiment of the “One State With Two Cultures Solution” which is a viable and sustainable solution, and which should be within the original Palestine which should never have been violently partitioned to begin with, particularly as it was so at the terrible the expense of the autochthonous Palestinians inhabiting in it and owning it for centuries. Israeli scholar, author, and documentary producer Illan Pappe is one of the most authoritative sources of historical information on this subject in his book “The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine”.
It must be the UN and not the U.S. to bring this about democratically and with the guarantees that said solution will be not only a sustainable one but one which would lead to a process of the demolition of the odious walls in conjunction with co-reconstruction, co-creation, and co-healing.
