Israel Foreign Minister Warns Two Iranian Warships To Transit Suez Canal Headed For Syria, Israel To Respond

Tyler Durden's picture





 

From Reuters:

Two Iranian warships planned to sail through the Suez canal en route to Syria on Wednesday, Israel's foreign minister said, calling the move the latest "provocation" by Tehran and hinting at an Israeli response.

Israel sees a major threat in Iran's nuclear programme and calls for its elimination, but the countries' geographical distance has kept them from open confrontation. Syria is one of Israel's neighbouring foes and an ally of Tehran.

"Tonight, two Iranian warships are meant to pass through the Suez Canal to the Mediterranean Sea and reach Syria, something that has not happened in many years," Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said in a Jerusalem speech distributed by his office.

"To my regret, the international community is not showing readiness to deal with the recurring Iranian provocations. The international community must understand that Israel cannot forever ignore these provocations."

And a rush to safety

I agree, but Iran doesn't have nukes if they did we would all know it believe me, the ego, we'd know.  stuxnet really crimped their style but they're recovering. Pakistan does have nukes and is reportedly trying to double the operational number and is doing that.  Pakistan thanks to US et al efforts in that region has been harboring a low level civil war since at least Benazir Bhutto's assassination.   The unknown is, how much more can it escalate and what will the Army's reaction be if things get out of hand.  I've read 2nd hand reports from former Army officers (opinion maker) of Pakistanis asking General Kiani daily for a coup and obviously he has not so far.  This Raymond Davis incident is really sort of serious. Still, the Pak Army has reportedly strong ties to the pentagon.

I would love the see the internet chatter stats in the blogosphere on pro Israel vs anti-Israel comments.

I bet the 98% of non world Zionists are beating the shit out of the 2% world Zionists.

There 's a lot of Israeli propaganda to deal with though;

Israel's Hasbara Agents Flooding Internet News Websites With Pro-Israel Comments!

"It does seem that we are winning this war against evil, and the criminals are taking notice... The criminal state of Israel has committed millions of shekels into a propaganda cyber-warfare division that has one job, and that is to seek out websites that slam Israel and either to ruin them via cyber-attack, or to flood these websites with pro-Israel comments in their articles' comment section!

I came across the following article from Uruknet online news, at www.uruknet.info, that gives great details on this newest activity of Israeli Hasbara agents... Here is that article in its entirety for my own readers to view here:

Hasbara spam alert With Israel's foreign ministry organising volunteers to flood news websites with pro-Israeli comments, Propaganda 2.0 is here
Richard SilversteinFebruary 14, 2011

The hasbara brigade strikes again! You always hear about Israeli attempts at media manipulation. Everyone knows it's going on but usually the process happens through cyber insurgents like those involved with Giyus (and its media monitoring software, Megaphone). Now, we know that the Israeli foreign ministry itself is orchestrating propaganda efforts designed to flood news websites with pro-Israel arguments and information.
A reader of my blog has received the following email which documents both the efforts and the agency that originated them. The solicitation to become a pro-Israel "media volunteer" also includes a list of media links which the ministry would like addressed by pro-Israel comments:

Dear friends,
We hold the [sic] military supremacy, yet fail the battle over the international media. We need to buy time for the IDF to succeed, and the least we can do is spare some (additional) minutes on the net. The ministry of foreign affairs is putting great efforts in balancing the media, but we all know it's a battle of numbers. The more we post, blog, talkback, vote – the more likely we gain positive sentiment.
I was asked by the ministry of foreign affairs to arrange a network of volunteers, who are willing to contribute to this effort. If you're up to it you will receive a daily messages & media package as well as targets.
If you wish to participate, please respond to this email."

Since the 1979 Iranian revolution and the downfall of the US Puppet Ruler the Shah, Iran has been an Islamic state. In that interval of time, 1979 to the present, Iran has not invaded anyone. Not once. People of all religions live in peace in Iran, even Jews, who find life so comfortable in Iran they refused an offer by the government of Israel to emigrate!

In the same period of time, Israel, a self-declared Jewish state, attacked Iraq in 1981, bombing the power station at Osirik, claiming it was a clandestine weapons factory. Subsequent examination of the ruins following the 2003 invasion proved Israel had lied. In 1982, Israel invaded Lebanon. This led to the Massacres at Sabra and Shatilla. In February 2003 Israel stages incursions into Gaza and Nablus. In September 2007 Israel bombs Syria, again insisting they are destroying a clandestine weapons laboratory. Again there is no evidence to support Israel's claims. In 2006, Israel attacks Lebanon, killing 1200, mostly civilians, several UN observers, and littering the landscape with land mines on their way out.In February 2008 Israel again raids Gaza, killing over 100. HAMAS agrees to a cease fire and keeps it for 6 months until November 4, when Israel again attacks, killing 6 HAMAS members, launching operation CAST LEAD. 1300 Gazans, mostly civilians, are killed. Israel loses 13 soldiers. Violations of international law include the use of White Phosphorus incendiary bombs against civilians and non-military targets. The United Nations investigates, but Israel refuses to cooperate. In May 2010, Israel attacks an international aid flotilla bring food and medical supplies to Gaza in international waters. 9 people are murdered including an American from New York. Add to it the numerous assassinations such as last year's embarrassment in Dubai, and you get the picture, even without the overtly racist and apartheid statements coming from Israel's rabbis.

In the same period of time, the United States, officially a secular nation but predominantly Christian, attacked El Salvador (1980), Libya (1981), Sinai (1982), Lebanon (1982 1983), Egypt (1983), Grenada (1983), Honduras (1983), Chad (1983), Persian Gulf (1984), Libya (1986) , Bolivia (1986), Iran (1987), Persian Gulf (1987), Kuwait (1987), Iran (1988), Honduras (1988), Panama (1988), Libya (1989), Panama (1989), Colombia, Bolivia, and Peru (1989), Philippines (1989), Panama (1989-1990), Liberia (1990), Saudi Arabia (1990), Iraq (1991), Zaire (1991), Sierra Leone (1992), Somalia (1992), Bosnia-Herzegovina (1993 to present), Macedonia (1993), Haiti (1994), Macedonia (1994), Bosnia (1995), Liberia (1996), Central African Republic (1996), Albania (1997), Congo/Gabon (1997), Sierra Leon (1997), Cambodia (1997), Iraq (1998), Guinea/Bissau (1998), Kenya/Tanzania (1998 to 1999), Afghanistan/Sudan (1998), Liberia (1998), East Timor (1999), Serbia (1999), Sierra Leon (2000), Yemen (2000), East Timor (2000), Afghanistan (2001 to present), Yemen (2002), Philippines (2002) , Cote d'Ivoire (2002), Iraq (2003 to present), Liberia (2003), Georgia/Djibouti (2003), Haiti (2004), Georgia/Djibouti/Kenya/Ethiopia/Yemen/Eritrea War on Terror (2004), Pakistan drone attacks (2004 to present), Somalia (2007), South Ossetia/Georgia (2008), Syria (2008), Yemen (2009), Haiti (2010), etc. etc. etc. etc.

I would argue that the US did invade Haiti but subversively, undermining the self-determination of its People countless times, the most recent during the earthquake when the US invaded physically and commandeered the international airport, controlling all access in and out of a country, preventing vital aid from entering the country for weeks.  An occupation is an occupation.

The usual FUDpackers come to the debate.  The witless somehow think they can feign a good argument and win points based on the turgid emotion in their girded loins.  It's more funny than tragic.

Why was the Obama administration so quick to send in 10,000 marines to occupy an earthquake-ravaged country that is the poorest in the hemisphere?

It turns out that Haiti has oil, which the U.S. has kept in reserve for decades, in the event of a disruption of Middle East supplies. But now that the Middle East is facing peak oil, those reserves need to be brought online, so this was the perfect pretext to send in the Marines so Haiti could be strongarmed into allowing U.S. multinationals exploit its oil reserves instead of Haiti exploiting them for itself.

In addition, the numerous deep-water harbors in Haiti, located adjacent to its oil reserves, make it an ideal location for petrochemical plants and oil transshipment terminals, and if Haiti can be forced to remain poor, it can be forced to accept the pollution from them.

Ali Abunimah (http://electronicintifada.net) put it best: if you accept the right of Israel to exist and to defend itself then you must also accept the brutal slayings and mass murder of tens of thousands of civilians over the course of decades; you must also accept and condone house demolitions as a form of punishment; you must also accept and condone collective punishment; you must also accept and condone detention without charge and torture of Palestinians, including minors; you must also accept and condone the use of human shields; you must also accept and condone occupation and settlement (illegal under international law).  I would add that you must also reject and rebuke international law and common law itself when you accept the state of Israel and condone its barbaric practices.

How many of the pro-Israel peanut gallery will man up and accept and condone Israel's right to exist and right to defend itself, warts and all?  Let's hear it.

I predict the demise of Israel as a theocratic Jewish majority state by 2025.

too many errors to dispute all of them but you need to check your facts.  I'll just point out a few.  US never attacked Honduras. In 1983 or 1988 US sent troops to Honduras to intimidate Nicaragua.  US did not attack Kuwait sent troops to confront Iraq who invaded Kuwait.  (I am not saying I agree with either one of these just stating the facts)

Please get your facts right because when you post false information it takes away from any legitimate info you may have mixed in.

Israel is a terrific country. A lot like California, without the financial problems. Sadly, California doesn't really fit in well sandwiched between Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, and Jordon, with Iran and formerly Iraq just over the horizon.

Lebanon has been occupied by Syria and taken over by Hezbollah, a terrorist army funded by Iran. The West Bank and Gaza have been taken over by Hamas, a terrorist army funded by Iran. Syria has been an active state of war with Israel for decades.

Nope. I realized it could be taken two ways. That's ok. The Israeli's are constantly debating policy and evaluating themselves. They flip governments every couple of years. But they do draw the line at consistently asserting their right to exist.

Fuking Israeli bitches not only did they have the whole world in a stranglehold since the the made up Holohoax, now they want to start WW3

From "http://www.solargeneral.com/library/did-six-million-really-die-richard-h..."

 

"Is it possible that the story of the Six Million Jews is serving a
political purpose, even that it is a form of political blackmail? So far as the Jewish people
themselves are concerned, the deception has been an incalculable benefit. Every conceivable
race and nationality had its share of suffering in the Second World War, but none has so
successfully elaborated it and turned it to such great advantage."

"It being the case that thou, Galileo, son of the late Vincenzio Galilei, a Florentine, now aged 70, wast denounced in this Holy Office in 1615:

"That thou heldest as true the false doctrine taught by many, that the Sun was the centre of the universe and immoveable, and that the Earth moved, and had also a diurnal motion: That on this same matter thou didst hold a correspondence with certain German mathematicians....

"That the Sun is the centre of the universe and doth not move from his place is a proposition absurd and false in philosophy, and formerly heretical; being expressly contrary to Holy Writ: That the Earth is not the centre of the universe nor immoveable, but that it moves, even with a diurnal motion, is likewise a proposition absurd and false in philosophy, and considered in theology ad minus erroneous in faith.....

 

Fuk them I am a Heretic ! And yes She Does Turn!

 

"We say, pronounce, sentence, and declare, that thou, the said Galileo, by the things deduced during this trial, and by thee confessed as above, hast rendered thyself vehemently suspected of heresy by this Holy Office, that is, of having believed and held a doctrine which is false, and contrary to the Holy Scriptures

indeed, if one researches the history of Zionists some interesting facts show themselves, such as

n the late 1870s, Jewish philanthropists such as the Montefiores and the Rothschilds responded to the persecution of Jews in Eastern Europe by sponsoring agricultural settlements for Russian Jews in Palestine. The Jews who migrated in this period are known as the First Aliyah.[24] Aliyah is a Hebrew word meaning "ascent," referring to the act of spiritually "ascending" to the Holy Land and a basic tenet of Zionism.

and:

The Jewish population of the USA increased about ten times between 1880 and 1920, with the immigration of poorer, more liberal and radical, "downtown", Eastern European immigrants fleeing persecution. It was not until 1912, when the secular “people’s lawyer” Louis Brandeis became involved in Zionism, just before the First World War, that Zionism gained significant support.[48] By 1917, the American Provisional Executive Committee for General Zionist Affairs, which Brandeis chaired had increased American Zionist membership ten times to 200,000 members, and “thenceforth became the financial center for the world Zionist movement”.[49]

and:

The Balfour Declaration of 1917 (dated 2 November 1917) was a formal statement of policy by the British government stating that

His Majesty's government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country."[1]

The declaration was made in a letter from Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour to Baron Rothschild (Walter Rothschild, 2nd Baron Rothschild), a leader of the British Jewish community, for transmission to the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland.

intentionally choosing wiki'd texts so as to avoid seemingly "opinionated" sites - and for the (repeated) record, I am not anti-Jewish peoples, merely pointing to the Zionist embeds in nationstates, amrka in particular - it just seems to me that "Israel" is an intentional trojan horse in the middle east, and it's interesting how often "Rothschild" gets a mention. . .

(oh, and how perfectly convenient a "world war" would be right about now)

When a group of people or an individual are meek and dress differently they are usually picked on and bullied. That has been the history of the Jews since they were first enslaved. So few resisted the Nazi theft of homes, businesses and earthly goods because they were a pious people and looked funny with long hair and funny garb. Guess what? They have finally decided to make a stand and hit the bully back as hard or harder than they were hit. You don't like it much, do you? Oooooo, did that wittle Jew boy give you a boo-boo. Tough shit. Stop being a bully or live with the results. Fucking whiners.

I suggest an experiment. You take a trip to Israel and go walking about from small town to small town and see how you are treated if you are nonthreatening and silent. If you survive that, take your next little foot excursion in Yemen the same way. Let us know if you are still alive after each of the tours of local sites. Better yet, take your 15 year old daughter with you. Sorry you can't carry any concealed weapons.
