Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: Doing Israel's Bidding

by Kurt Nimmo

Israel's Likudites could not ask for more: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Iranian president, has called for Israel to "be wiped off the map," thus underscoring the Zionist argument that Muslims want to kill all Jews or at least push them into the sea. Of course, this will never happen, nor should it. Most people with common sense simply want Israel to stop punishing the Palestinians for the fact they have lived in Palestine, centuries before European Zionists decided to steal their land. Most rational people want peace between Israel and the Palestinians, that is to say Israel must go back to the 1967 borders and allow the Palestinians to form their own state. This will not happen anytime soon and Ahmadinejad gives the Zionists further excuse to make sure it doesn't, thus prolonging and extending the crisis in the Middle East.

As F. William Engdahl writes (A Century Of War: Anglo-American Oil Politics and the New World Order), the Pahlavi dynasty in Iran was overthrown by British intelligence and the CIA, working on a script devised by the neolib "geostrategic" planner Zbigniev Brzezinski, and Ayatollah Khomeini was installed in 1979 for the simple reason Islam is more easily stage managed than pan-Arab nationalism (as well, the Shah had violated his client status when it was discovered he was about to build German designed nuclear reactors). "Covert connections between the new Iranian theocratic leadership and the incoming Reagan administration in the US were demonstrated by the so-called October Surprise, which spelled the end of Jimmy Carter's presidency, and the guns-for-hostages deal, also known as the Iran-Contra scandal," writes Margo Kingston.

"According to U.S. administration officials, funds for [Hamas] came from the oil-producing states and directly and indirectly from Israel," Richard Sale of United Press International wrote in 2002. "The PLO was secular and leftist and promoted Palestinian nationalism. Hamas wanted to set up a transnational state under the rule of Islam, much like Khomeini's Iran." It should be noted that Hamas evolved from cells of the Muslim Brotherhood (al-Ikhwan al-Muslimeen), a fanatical Wahabbi organization long ago penetrated by British intelligence and then put to use by the CIA.

In fact, the Muslim Brotherhood remains an important asset for the United States, as demonstrated by the fact the "State Department has drawn up a memo calling for direct and permanent political dialogue with the banned Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt," according to the Egyptian newspaper al-Sharq al-Awsat. "The memo recommends that after reaching common understandings with the Muslim Brotherhood, Washington should pressure the Egyptian government to let the group members speak out their minds freely and play a role on the country's political landscape, according to the sources." In other words, the United States would likely support a fanatical Wahabbi government in Egypt, same as they supported a fanatical Wahabbi government in Afghanistan (i.e., the Taliban) prior to nine eleven, the same way Israel supported Hamas. Obviously, a tyrannical and extremist Islamic government in Egypt and elsewhere in the Middle East is preferable to a secular government because the latter is susceptible to democracy-and democracy is the last thing the United States and Israel want in the Middle East, regardless of Bush's bombastic nonsense about freedom.

And thus an extremist and tyrannical government in Iran is doing precisely what the globalist neolibs, Bush and Sharon want-making sure there is never peace in the Middle East. It took the neocon Zalmay Khalilzad-Unocal flunky and former Taliban cheerleader-about ten minutes to respond, probably having to struggle mightily to contain his glee at Ahmadinejad's remarks. "Of course, we are opposed to Iranian policies with regard to Israel, we are opposed with regard to the nuclear policy, with regard to their support of terror, with regard to their negative policies in Iraq," he said, making sure to encapsulate the entire neocon enchilada.

In fact, the entire neocon and kill-the-Muslims community responded post haste to the Iranian president's useful (as in useful idiot) commentary. "With this tirade coming from the top and going to the youth, it can hardly be believed that the Roadmap to Peace is going anywhere but into the black hole of history," J. Grant Swank, Jr. wrote on the MichNews site. Not unpredictably, the Horowitz disciple, Steven Plaut, over on the Moonbat Central blog, where warmongers daily chomp at the bit to kill Muslims, has called for Iran to be destroyed. "The reasons why it makes sense to topple [he means bomb] the Iran in Iran [sic] keep piling up."

As if to send the message all Muslims instinctively hate Jews and want to kill them, at approximately the same time the news of Ahmadinejad's comments hit the media megaphones, a "Palestinian suicide bomber slipped into a school-holiday crowd lining up for sandwiches at a popular falafel stand today, setting off a thunderous blast that killed five people, wounded more than 20, and dimmed hopes for diplomatic progress in the wake of Israel's withdrawal from the Gaza Strip," the Los Angeles Times reports. "The Palestinian militant group Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility for the bombing, saying it was carried out to avenge the killing of a senior Islamic Jihad commander by Israeli undercover troops two days earlier during a raid in the West Bank town of Tulkarem."
