Israel Accuses Russia Of Supporting Iran Terror Organizations, Says Iran Has Enough Material For 4 Nuclear Bombs

Tyler Durden's picture

Just because 3 US aircraft carriers in the Arabian Gulf are not enough, Israel's Lt General Benny Gantz hit the airwaves earlier today, with some additional pot stirring, and some fresh allegations which will hardly appeal to Russia, who is already using Syria as a military ship docking station (and allegedly supplying arms to the local regime). And while his statement that Iran has "enough material to create 4 nuclear bombs" may be debated, what is more concerning is his allegation that "[Iran terror organizations are] supported by Syria, Iran and even Russia." What next: the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier floating gingerly between the various US CVNs in the region just keeping everyone on their toes in international waters?

From the Israel Defense Forces blog:

Yesterday, the IDF chief of staff, Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz spoke at the annual Herzliya Conference and addressed Israel’s security situation. The following are the main excerpts from his speech:

“Iran is working towards military nuclear capabilities and can be fully armed within a year… Iran is a global, regional and Israeli threat and problem.”


“[Terror organizations are] supported by Syria, Iran and even Russia who continues sending ammunition to Syria. The Middle East is currently arming more than any other region in the world, and we are the target of all this ammunition.”


“Every region in Israel is currently under threat… our enemies are trying to create a military system that skips Israel’s defense capabilities and directly targets the strategic depth of the State of Israel.”


“The world must continue isolating Iran… the pressure and financial sanctions should be continued as they are beginning to sprout results, even within Iran… We continue building powerful, impressive, trustworthy, prepared, and well-trained military capabilities, and we must be ready to employ them, if the need arises.”


“The IDF greatly strengthened during the last few years and previous gaps have been matched. It is crucial that we maintain this trend for future obstacles aren’t any less challenging. We need as much accurate, continuous power as possible that will bring us to an undisputed, fast victory over our enemies.”

Today, following the chief of staff’s speech, IDF Head of Military Intelligence, Maj. Gen. Aviv Kochavi spoke at the conference as well:

“Iran has enough material to create four nuclear bombs. It continues developing such material and claims that it is doing so for peaceful and civilian purposes.”


“Iran is nearly capable of acquiring nuclear weapons. It is not dependent on additional development but rather a matter of decision.”


“The enemy is disappearing from the battle field, and if in the past a company commander would look through binoculars at the battle field and see the enemy, today against Lebanon or Gaza we will not see anything. Every tenth house in Lebanon serves as a missile storage facility or a rocket launching site.”

i think you need to take a wider view of it all.  the state of Israel (soon after creation) was and is used as an incendiary device to keep the entire ME unstable and the muslims were all too happy to oblige.  the reason...oil and the $ (global reserve currency).  you may say, wait...doesn't ME instability make oil more expensive?  yes, yes it does and those who control the oil through production, distribution and currency have enriched themselves like never before.  also, with regional stability there would be no excuse to invade these lands (MIC) and impose global central banker friendly regimes.  Israel is the sideshow, the "American Idol focul point for the masses" to avert eyes from what is really going on with the NWO.   the sate of Isreal and the Zionists are the puppets of the NWO plan (not the ultimate controllers) simply a vehicle to further global goals and to distract the world.  once it's usefullness is complete, they will be discarded and then the NWO will focus on China and Russia until it has complete control.  those who belive the the Jews and/or Zionists are the NWO are not looking quite deep enough.

All the more reason to let them fight their own battles.

Good luck to the NWO grabbing "complete control" of China and Russia.

Hey, jackass.  You take that back right now.  My Chihuahua is very loving and generous, doesn't feel entitled to differential treatment, and doesn't view me as an animal to be controlled and harvested for maximum cash.  And comparing her to these vile people who rule the world, well, it's just wrong, and I'm gonna take my ball and go home now.

our cats and dogs bring us so much laughter and warmth, perhaps one time when taking your ball and going home is warranted :)

This sounds like one hell of an assertion. Guess Major Generals are lying politicians too.

Correction. Major generals are lying military dogs waiting to retire to become lying politicians.

Further clarification: Major Generals are politicians or they would not be Major Generals.

This is a ploy to justify the random missile fire coming from Israel landing on people's houses.  Nice fella.  If anything, a contrary indicator.  US forces there to protect what already flows, a screen.  Israel will lob missiles over the screen.

Fuck Israel. Fuck the United Nations. Fuck the bankers. Fuck the globalists.


Fuck, fuck, fuck, FUCK.

Move the United Nations to Yemen where it could do the world some real good for a change.

if Israel got wiped off the face of the map, again that hurts America how ?

Hey, than we can end the fed, bring back normal currency, wipe-out debt, kill MSMs, clean the house, restore constitution and live quite ... normally... that was a joke...

Global Hunter's picture

Who the fuck do the Israelis think they are telling Russia what to do?  Israel is allied with the USA (they are backed by a dying empire) so they had better enjoy calling the shots on this planet because I suspect its not going to last much longer.

 am afraid its a little bit vice versa

when people figure out the dirty game masters, that will be fast and furious...

zionists have their filthy hairy tentacles in almost every country on earth.   Putin has been aware of this for some time, and is giving them the good fight in Russia.   But that fight is far from over.

LeBalance's picture

in looking back into the genesis of Russia (USSR) and Israel, they both spring from exactly the same governing group.  Their funding came from (and still comes from) the same governing group.  To say that Israel is tweaking Russia with provocative language is to see illusion.  To see the stage play is something else.

trav7777's picture

you may want to take a look at modern Russia and you will see that Putin heads an interest group that is antithetical to the originators of the USSR.  Russia is self-funded at this point.  The oligarch parasites who had taken over the country in collapse (same as Weimar) were run out and forced to flee with their 2nd passports.

Karl von Bahnhof's picture

trav you are not completely stupid man...

john39's picture

exactly right.  Putin is at war with a zionist shadow government, and he is winning.  Note Hillary Clinton pushing protests this year to get rid of Putin... enough said.

Some of those oligarchs are still there.

Why is this a problem?  How does it support the meat of this guy's argument?

Well, some Merkevas were holed by some nice Russian Missiles in that area.

They apparently have a app for that now.

Oh, good, Jew-bashing, that never gets old around here!

Global Hunter's picture

Hey Kralizec nothing from stopping you from joining the army and going to fight Israel's battles for it.  

kralizec's picture

Last I checked Israel was an ally, well, used to be anyway, but can still handle her own issues.  Thanks for the advice though.

Global Hunter's picture

If they can look after themselves why do you care what people on zerohedge post about them?  Touched a nerve there...

Why do we send our poor white, black and hispanic young men to fight their battles if they can look after themselves?

kralizec's picture

I recoil at anyone who singles out a group of people previously targeted by some of the most evil people in human history, some of the stuff posted here at ZH could come right out of Mein Kampf or a rant by the Iranian President or Hamas or the Muslim Brotherhood.  Really, are some people here so depraved that this is where you go?  So, a nerve, yeah, you might say that.  It might interest you to know that not every Jew is out to kill you or steal your money, but from what I read here sometimes that message has zero chance of resonating.

And I must have missed something, I am unaware any battle we are fighting on behalf of Israel.  Obama himself is not exactly a friend of Israel.

Everytime a carrier shows up in the gulf people here go batshit crazy, convinced the dark helicopters are set loose to start wars over oil (what, a lot of Code Pink, MoveOn & Daily Kos refugees here or what?) balh blah blah and when nothing happens I swear some people here are disappointed hell hasn't been unleashed.

I love the economic and market discussions here, but Dear God anything else draws out moonbats by the bushel!

I guess it is what it is.

Sometimes saying something on line that one is censored from saying in real life is a release valve.  Think about it, I can say I don't like Armenians and people won't know what I mean, I can say I don't trust Ukrainians and get away with it, I can say that Hutus are thugs and people will shrug but say something about Jews and more than likely you'll destroy your career.  Most of us like to point out hypocrisy and what makes Israel and Jews so untouchable, why are they given consideration when Armenians and Ukrainians aren't?

I watched and laughed my ass off watching Jon Stewart last night and I'd give the guy a big hug if he was here now, there are many Jews in the west who speak the truth.  It is not the fault of Jewish individuals that the people who control the militairy industrial complex and Israel happen to identify themselves as "jews".

kralizec's picture

When six million are eliminated and millions more enslaved and every Muslim nation on earth wants you annihilated, well, if that is what it takes to be defined "untouchable" then I guess they (as a group) earned it.

As for me, I find it much more beneficial and much more productive to target my angst on people directly.

For instance, I think Bernanke is screwing us over, I target him, I don't target Zionists, Jews, etc.  A broad brush covers a lot, and creates a bigger mess when a smaller brush can do the job.

Just my 2 cents.

Randall Cabot's picture

That 6 million crap is a ploy used to hide the crimes committed by jews. And if the jews didn't act as a group to screw Germany in WWI there wouldn't have been Hitler or Nazis:


kralizec's picture

And the Skinheads check in...

Randall Cabot's picture

And the jew supremacists change the subject.

kralizec's picture

Wrong, not a Jew, not a supremacist.

The subject was six million dead Jews, which I guess you either deny or condone.

Try again.

Randall Cabot's picture

Why aren't you more concerned with the tens of millions murdered by jews if you are not a jew?

kralizec's picture

The Jews as a race killed 10 million eh, impressive, who were they?

Randall Cabot's picture

I'm not surprised that you didn't answer the previous question.

First off, jewish capitalists funded jewish communists-interesting teamwork, don't you think? The Red Terror, engineered by Trotsky, Sverlov and Lenin, was just a warmup:

The Russian Communists plan to strategically use terror to intimidate their White adversaries into submission. On orders from Lenin and Trotsky, the "Red Terror" is announced by the Jewish Red Yakov Sverlov. The Red Terror is marked by mass arrests in the middle of the night, executions, and hideously creative tactics of torture. As many as 100,000 Russians are murdered in the Red Terror, carried out by Jewish-run Cheka (secret police).


Among the verified atrocities committed, often in view of victim’s family members, are:

*40,000 White prisoners publicly hanged in the Ukraine
* Burning coals inserted in women's vaginas
* Crucifixions Rapes
* Victims submerged in boiling oil or tar
* Victims placed in coffins filled with hungry rats
* Victims soaked with water, and left to turn into human ice-cubes in the winter weather.
* Priests, monks, and nuns have molten lead poured down their throats and are burned alive.


The demoralizing terror takes a heavy psychological toll on the frightened Russian people.

By 1922, many will have been broken into total submission to the Red monsters of the dreaded Cheka.

From Wiki:

The Red Terror in Soviet Russia was a campaign of mass arrests, executions, and atrocities conducted by the Bolshevik government. In Soviet historiography, the Red Terror is described as having been officially announced on September 2, 1918 by Yakov Sverdlov and ended about October 1918.


kralizec's picture

So if your criteria is the sins of one become the sins of all, then let us kill - Germans, Swedes, Danes, French, Italians, Egyptians, Angolans, Lybians, Algerians, oh hell we'd have to kill everybody!

The Holodomor (Ukrainian translation Killing by hunger) was a man-made famine occurring mainly in the Ukrainian Republic of the Soviet Union during 1932-33. The famine was caused partly by the folly of Stalin's latest socialist scheme, and partly due to a deliberate, strategic terror plan engineered by Stalin's powerful Jewish brother-in-law, Lazar Kaganovich.

From Wiki:

Kaganovich was born in 1893 to Jewish parents in the village of Kabany, Radomyshl uyezd, Kiev Governorate, Russian Empire (now named Dibrova, Poliske Raion, Kiev Oblast, Ukraine). Early in his political career, in 1915, Kaganovich became a Communist organizer for a shoe factory where he worked.

The Holodomor (Ukrainian: literal translation Killing by hunger) was a man-made famine in the Ukrainian SSR between 1932 and 1933. During the famine, which is also known as the "terror-famine in Ukraine" and "famine-genocide in Ukraine", millions of Ukrainians died of starvation in a peacetime catastrophe unprecedented in the history of Ukraine.[4]

Early estimates of the death toll by scholars and government officials varied greatly; anywhere from 1.8[5] to 12 million[6] ethnic Ukrainians were said to have been killed as a result of the famine.

Jewish-run Cheka???

Cheka... signed into existance by Lenin.  That Cheka?  The Cheka run by a revolutionary hero who was Polish?

Please provide us with some more information that links this organization as some Jewish operated/funded police force within the Soviet Union.

No doubt Cheka committed some brutal crimes.  I just need more than your words that combine the two.

Randall Cabot's picture

Lenin was part jewish and always spoke highly of jews. Some of the other top Bolsheviks who were said not to be jews were also probably jews or part jewish like early Cheka leader Dhervinski, and Beria. Other top Bolsheviks like Stalin and Molotov were married to jewesses. From an israeli newsite:

An Israeli student finishes high school without ever hearing the name "Genrikh Yagoda," the greatest Jewish murderer of the 20th Century, the GPU's deputy commander and the founder and commander of the NKVD. Yagoda diligently implemented Stalin's collectivization orders and is responsible for the deaths of at least 10 million people. His Jewish deputies established and managed the Gulag system. After Stalin no longer viewed him favorably, Yagoda was demoted and executed, and was replaced as chief hangman in 1936 by Yezhov, the "bloodthirsty dwarf."

Yezhov was not Jewish but was blessed with an active Jewish wife. In his Book "Stalin: Court of the Red Star", Jewish historian Sebag Montefiore writes that during the darkest period of terror, when the Communist killing machine worked in full force, Stalin was surrounded by beautiful, young Jewish women.

Stalin's close associates and loyalists included member of the Central Committee and Politburo Lazar Kaganovich. Montefiore characterizes him as the "first Stalinist" and adds that those starving to death in Ukraine, an unparalleled tragedy in the history of human kind aside from the Nazi horrors and Mao's terror in China, did not move Kaganovich.

Many Jews sold their soul to the devil of the Communist revolution and have blood on their hands for eternity. We'll mention just one more: Leonid Reichman, head of the NKVD's special department and the organization's chief interrogator, who was a particularly cruel sadist.

In 1934, according to published statistics, 38.5 percent of those holding the most senior posts in the Soviet security apparatuses were of Jewish origin. They too, of course, were gradually eliminated in the next purges. In a fascinating lecture at a Tel Aviv University convention this week, Dr. Halfin described the waves of soviet terror as a "carnival of mass murder," "fantasy of purges", and "essianism of evil." Turns out that Jews too, when they become captivated by messianic ideology, can become great murderers, among the greatest known by modern history.

The Jews active in official communist terror apparatuses (In the Soviet Union and abroad) and who at times led them, did not do this, obviously, as Jews, but rather, as Stalinists, communists, and "Soviet people." Therefore, we find it easy to ignore their origin and "play dumb": What do we have to do with them? But let's not forget them. My own view is different. I find it unacceptable that a person will be considered a member of the Jewish people when he does great things, but not considered part of our people when he does amazingly despicable things.

Even if we deny it, we cannot escape the Jewishness of "our hangmen," who served the Red Terror with loyalty and dedication from its establishment. After all, others will always remind us of their origin.,7340,L-3342999,00.html

Thanks RC... I'll dig more into it and I appreciate your reply and level response.

Here's some more:

Under Lenin, Jews became involved in all aspects of the Revolution, including its dirtiest work. Despite the Communists' vows to eradicate anti-Semitism, it spread rapidly after the Revolution -- partly because of the prominence of so many Jews in the Soviet administration, as well as in the traumatic, inhuman Sovietization drives that followed. Historian Salo Baron has noted that an immensely disproportionate number of Jews joined the new Bolshevik secret police, the Cheka And many of those who fell afoul of the Cheka would be shot by Jewish investigators.

The collective leadership that emerged in Lenin's dying days was headed by the Jew Zinoviev, a loquacious, mean-spirited, curly-haired Adonis whose vanity knew no bounds.

"Anyone who had the misfortune to fall into the hands of the Cheka," wrote Jewish historian Leonard Schapiro, "stood a very good chance of finding himself confronted with, and possibly shot by, a Jewish investigator."20 In Ukraine, "Jews made up nearly 80 percent of the rank-and-file Cheka agents," reports W. Bruce Lincoln, an American professor of Russian history.21 (Beginning as the Cheka, or Vecheka) the Soviet secret police was later known as the GPU, OGPU, NKVD, MVD and KGB.)

In light of all this, it should not be surprising that Yakov M. Yurovksy, the leader of the Bolshevik squad that carried out the murder of the Tsar and his family, was Jewish, as was Sverdlov, the Soviet chief who co-signed Lenin's execution order.22

Igor Shafarevich, a Russian mathematician of world stature, has sharply criticized the Jewish role in bringing down the Romanov monarchy and establishing Communist rule in his country. Shafarevich was a leading dissident during the final decades of Soviet rule. A prominent human rights activist, he was a founding member of the Committee on the Defense of Human Rights in the USSR.

In Russophobia, a book written ten years before the collapse of Communist rule, he noted that Jews were "amazingly" numerous among the personnel of the Bolshevik secret police. The characteristic Jewishness of the Bolshevik executioners, Shafarevich went on, is most conspicuous in the execution of Nicholas II.

Stalin's Jews



We mustn't forget that some of greatest murderers of modern times were Jewish

Published:  12.21.06, 23:35 / Israel Opinion

Here's a particularly forlorn historical date: Almost 90 years ago, between the 19th and 20th of December 1917, in the midst of the Bolshevik revolution and civil war, Lenin signed a decree calling for the establishment of The All-Russian Extraordinary Commission for Combating Counter-Revolution and Sabotage, also known as Cheka.


Within a short period of time, Cheka became the largest and cruelest state security organization. Its organizational structure was changed every few years, as were its names: From Cheka to GPU, later to NKVD, and later to KGB.


We cannot know with certainty the number of deaths Cheka was responsible for in its various manifestations, but the number is surely at least 20 million, including victims of the forced collectivization, the hunger, large purges, expulsions, banishments, executions, and mass death at Gulags.


Whole population strata were eliminated: Independent farmers, ethnic minorities, members of the bourgeoisie, senior officers, intellectuals, artists, labor movement activists, "opposition members" who were defined completely randomly, and countless members of the Communist party itself.
