As a Sequel to “The Occupation of the American Mind” Another Relevant and Revealing Documentary Exposé of Israel’s Violence via “Zero Days”1
July 20, 2016 by Alfred
On July 12, 2016, the Argentum Post published an article based on the release of a documentary titled:
Said documentary and follow-up AP article constitute an exposé of how the Israeli government in conjunction with the American Israeli Political Affairs Committee (AIPAC) and other Israeli propagandist lobbies have been allowed to literally bribe the establishment neocon and neolib politicians and, in conjunction with an American corporatized mainstream media, to grotesquely distort and cover up historical reality, in such an insidious way and for so many decades, that the unsuspecting American public is literally culturally programmed to remain at such a low-level of awareness that both, its corrupted politicians and its misleading and infotainment mainstream media are egregiously able to manipulate its criteria as regards current events in general.
Most specifically, are the events relating to the U.S. – Israel so-called “exceptionalist” special relationship which severely damages the best interest of not only the U.S. but as well as those of that broad segment of Israeli society and of the U.S, and world-wide Judaic communities who are decent, progressive, humanist, peace aspiring and law-abiding citizens.
So, fast forward to today’s documentary description, ditto applies as regards to the present article based on the release of another documentary titled:
This documentary and follow-up AP article constitute another exposé of how the Israeli government has betrayed an agreement with the United States and offensively and abusively misused a “weapon” it was allowed to assist in designing and which it was allowed to use for defensive and intelligence objectives exclusively .
Of course Israel is a known violator of agreements with the U.S. and enthusiastically exploited opportunities to sell lethal armaments such as horrific cluster bombs to the fascist, torturing, and murderous dictator of Chile, Augusto Pinochet which Nixon and Kissinger supported.
Israel also was directly involved in the Guatemalan genocide of Guatemalan indians during the Ariel Sharon misleadership.
Israel was given specific codes to enable said weapon, but it decided to alter said weapon to be able to use it with its own codes. and did so recklessly.
This weapon is described as one as dangerous for the world as the 1945 atomic bombs which were used by the United States in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, since not only does it have an unimaginable potential for the destruction of human life and infrastructure by those who have it, at this time presumably only the United States and Israel which should never have been trusted with it, but given Israel used recklessly and thereby this weapon’s signature data is now in the possession others throughout the world.
With this brief introduction, the description of this weapon proceeds as succinctly as possible.
At the onset readers are informed that the supra link to the documentary, namely, “Zero Days”, is only a trailer, but in conjunction with the Tech Insider source included infra, it is most startling in what both reveal in the declarations by the former Director of both, the CIA and the NSA, namely Michael Hayden, and others to their enormous credit, who are a outspoken critics of the misuse of this weapon by Israel and furthermore point out that this “weapon” has been absurdly over-classified, and given that Israel blew its cover as well as the of the U.S., it is of utmost importance, not only for the national security of the United States, but that of the world, that there be an immediate and open comprehensive conversation in the national and international arenas followed up by the convening of an international conference, to not only contain the Israel generated damage, but to contain its potential to cause a global catastrophe.
So, a brief glossary summary of some terms used in this succinct description of this exposé
“Malware” : software that is intended to damage or disable computers and computer systems.
“Stuxtnet worm” : Stuxnet is a computer worm that targets industrial control systems that are used to monitor and control large-scale industrial facilities like power plants, dams, waste processing systems and similar operations.
“Cascading Uranium Centrifuges” : A system for the enrichment of Uranium isotope to be used either at the low-level of 4% for peaceful and internationally legal objectives such as energy generation and/or for the production of uranium isotope for medical applications.
For non-peaceful weaponization objectives uranium needs to enriched to the 90% level.
The gas centrifugation process utilizes a unique design that allows gas to constantly flow in and out of the centrifuge. Unlike most centrifuges which rely on batch processing, the gas centrifuge utilizes continuous processing, allowing cascading, in which multiple identical processes occur in succession
“NPT” or “Non-Proliferation Treaty” : The Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, commonly known as the Non-Proliferation Treaty or NPT, is an international treaty whose objective is to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons and weapons technology, to promote cooperation in the peaceful uses of nuclear energy, and to further the goal of achieving nuclear disarmament and general and complete disarmament.
It must be stated that while 190 countries signed on the NPT which was signed on July 1, of 1968.
The only countries which have nuclear weapons but refused to sign on to this treaty are :
First and foremost, Israel which not only developed clandestinely an arsenal of nuclear WMD as a result of a secret agreement between President Nixon and Prime Minister Gold Meir, who is known for her non-sensical declaration that “…there is not such thing as Palestine…”, and also in the mid 80’s proliferated the weaponization of nuclear energy technology to, of all nations, the white supremacist Apartheid regime of South Africa – See the “Unspoken Alliance : Israel’s Secret Relationship with Apartheid South Africa ” by Jewish scholar and author Sasha Polakow-Suransky”.
Additionally India and Pakistan did not sign the NPT and North Korea did but later withdrew from it.
Prior to getting to the essence of this article it also must be pointed out that on the basis of the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) certification, that Iran does not now possess atomic weapons and therefore is now, and was previously, allowed to legally use nuclear energy for energy generation and medical applications, and is subject to IAEA through inspections, thanks particularly to the recently concluded P5+1 agreement which President Obama to his great credit embrace and which Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu tried at all cost to sabotage.
In fact, during the time of the tyranny of the Shah’s dictatorship,which was empowered and installed by the Anglo/American intervention when in 1953 it was instrumental in crushing the democratically elected government of Mossadegh of the Tudeh (socialist) party, that Iran did receive support to develop a nuclear bomb with the U.S. support but did not get to develop one in time since the Shah tyranny was overthrown by the people of Iran which included and united Moslems, Christians, Jews, and Marxist seculars.
So, to cut to the chase, the following is what Tech Insider has determined about Israel’s misuse of the word’s first cyber weapon launch :
” A large portion of Iran’s centrifuges were taken offline, but it was only a temporary measure. It quickly recovered and secured its systems. The country also launched its own “cyber army” — no doubt inspired by its hacker counterparts in the US and Israel.
But for the US and Israel, the cyber weapon’s launch is likened to August 1945, when the first atomic bomb was dropped. Though the physical destruction by Stuxnet pales in comparison to bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, its first use by the West has given others license to look into it for themselves.
So whoever initiated this — and was very proud of themselves to see that little dip in Iran’s centrifuge numbers — should look back now and acknowledge it was a major mistake,” Emad Kiyaei, executive director American Iranian Council, says in the film.
Perhaps that may be the most frightening revelation of all to come from “Zero Days.”
Now there is a new weapon that can do a better job at destruction than bombs. But the difference between highly-controlled nuclear materials and computer code, is that anyone — and any state — can develop it. It seems pretty reasonable to think that there are things out there today that we haven’t seen that are much more advanced [than Stuxnet],” O’Murchu told TI in a phone interview.
We’ll just have to wait and see who uses it next.
*The NSA source is later revealed to be an actor reciting lines based on testimony from CIA and NSA officials who spoke with Gibney (the producer of Zero Days) and his team. “
The Jerusalem Post to its credit, further added, inter alia, the following :
” Michael Hayden, former head of both the CIA and the NSA, claims the goal of a potential Israeli strike on Iran would be to drag the US into war.
Hayden made the remarks in a documentary film premiering this week at the Berlin International Film Festival. The film also quotes other sources in the US intelligence community who accuse Israel of disrupting a joint covert operation to sabotage computers used in Iran’s nuclear program by acting rashly and in opposition to agreed-upon plans. As a result, hundreds of millions of dollars that were invested in the operation went to waste.
According to the claims in the film, the hasty Israeli action prevented the carrying out of a number of further planned actions that were intended to sabotage computers at a second, more fortified uranium enrichment facility at Fordow. The film also reveals another planned cyber unit covert operation code-named NZ (Nitro Zeus).
US Vice President Joe Biden was quoted in the film as saying in a meeting that the Israelis “changed the code” of the deadly virus’s software. As a result, in opposition to the plan, the virus spread from nuclear program computers to many other computers in Iran, and from there, to computers around the world, even harming the computers of American companies. The unplanned spread of the virus led to the exposing of the operation and enabled the Iranians, with the help of information security experts from Belarus and Russia, to invent a “vaccine” for their computers to better defend the nuclear program.
According to the film, the premature exposure of the operation caused by Israel’s action’s also caused the virus software, which was among the most classified and most advanced in the world, to leak to Russian and Iranian intelligence.
“Ironically,” it is said in the film, “the secret formula for writing the code for the virus software fell into the hands of Russia and Iran – the country against which it was developed.”
According to the film, offensive cyber warfare against Iran was increased even more during Barack Obama’s term, who feared that Israel under the leadership of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and then-defense minister Ehud Barak would take military action against the Islamic Republic. Hayden reveals in the film that America’s fear was that “the real goal of an Israeli attack [against the nuclear facilities in Iran], would be to drag us into war,” because Israel’s own attack capabilities were limited. “Israel has an excellent air force, but it’s small. The distance is great and the facilities are spread throughout Iran.”
PS Finally, as an addendum to the supra article on the revelations of the “Zero Days” documentary the following is incorporated as being germane to the subject matter of Israel’s provocative generation of reprisal violence by its globally extended assassinations network.
A list of Israel’s assassinations from 1950 to the present in as diverse places as Athens, Greece ; Paris, France ; Montevideo, Uruguay ; Munich, Germany; Rome, Italy; Cannes, France; the former German Democratic Republic; Beirut, Lebanon; Brussels, Belgium; Damascus, Syria; and many others is provided by Wikipedia
When it comes to assassinations of innocent Iran nuclear scientists, the following report is candidly noted and which was authored by none other the former Minister of Defense of Israel, namely Moshe Ya’alon who recently resigned in outspoken protest against the policies of the Israel misleader, Prime Minister Netanyahu.
“We the People” at this critical juncture and political crisis embodied by the utter disqualifications on a bipartisan basis of the nominees to our 2016 presidential elections, must unite on one common theme : the elimination of global nuclear weapons, and now the elimination of cyber war weapons, and this must be complemented by a national ban on assault weapons plus a ban on the carrying on arms in public.
“NEVER AGAIN” does not exclusively refer to the Jewish victims of Germany’s ethnic cleansing, it must broadly encompass ALL mass killings at home and abroad and that must include the Palestinian victims of Israeli oppression, occupation, and mass killings, which must end NOW.
If there is a will, there is way to go progressively forward no matter what the agenda is of the 0.1% to 1.0% of the establishmentarians sinister agendas are.
