Gilad Atzmon: A Surge of Truth

It is an “attack on the international community,” said US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in reference to the release of 250.000 secret cables by Wikileaks.

Clinton is correct, this is indeed a long overdue, necessary attack on an ‘international community’ of war mongers and war criminals.

The leaked cables reveal a very gloomy picture of the state of our world current affairs : It unveils a clear dichotomy between the people of the world and our conflict driven political leadership.

For most of us, it is plainly clear that Wikileaks is not just an act of pure journalism — it is also the ultimate form of true democracy : it respects the most sacred liberal principle, namely, ‘the right to know’.

The White House has ordered government agencies to tighten their handling of classified documents.

But I guess that there is not much they,  or anyone else can do to prevent those leaks now : ultimately, it is human beings who are implementing those global-Zionist  murderous policies — and evidently, human beings are humane and even brave enough to blow the whistle.

Mrs. Clinton said it was essential that ‘the diplomatic community’ be able to conduct private communications. Yet, it is also essential that people out there know more of the plans of our diplomats and leaders. Especially when these plans lead to genocidal actions.

“Every country, including the United States, must be able to have honest, private dialogue with other countries about issues of common concern,” said Clinton, and I wonder, what is so “honest” about Mossad chief Meir Dagan partially agitating, with his American counterparts, a student coup in Iran?

Clinton wouldn’t comment on specific details, but did say – for example – that it showed concerns about Iran were real, widely shared and well founded.

She is indeed correct — both Israel and King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia urged the US to destroy Iran’s nuclear facilities. Seemingly, once again America has been caught in bed with the world’s darkest regimes.

Unlike Clinton,  Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad performed a gesture of real leadership and true responsibility today —  He actually dismissed the leaks in an attempt to strengthen Tehran’s relations with its neighbours.

He realises that peace is patriotic. He must have realised that peace is popular.

GORDON DUFF: “WIKI-MURDERS” IN IRAN, SIGNAL “FALSE FLAG” TERROR

November 29, 2010 posted by Gordon Duff · 23 Comments

SITE OF REPUTED MOSSAD ATTACK IN TEHRAN

“WIKI-MURDERS”…”WIKI-TERROR”….”WIKI-WAR”

By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor

An attack on American forces in the Persian Gulf is being planned. Wikileaks is an integral part of the operation. Step one was the current “diplomatic” Wikileak. Step two, the brazen “Mossad style”murders in Iran.

Wikileaks couldn’t be more involved if they built the bombs or fired the missiles themselves.

When America is attacked, either in the Persian Gulf or at home, Wikileaks will be a part of it. The operation is staged for the Persian Gulf where American warships are “sitting ducks” for a sneak attack like the USS Liberty “incident.”

As with the Liberty attack, Israel can use friends in high places in the United States to assure that if they are blamed, they can claim it was an honest mistake, even if an American super-carrier goes down with all hands.

The preferred weapon will be submarine launched missiles, probably with small nuclear warheads, that will appear to be launched from Iran. Israeli submarines are currently on station within range of American targets, subs known to be armed with cruise type missiles similar to those used by Iran. The attacks on US forces are dependent on the build-up of tensions tied to terror bombings that have killed one Iranian scientist and wounded another.

A “working group” within the American military is tasked with placing the blame on Iran with “in the can” intelligence much as was used on 9/11. The same forces responsible for planning the Building 7 demolition on 9/11 are being called upon.

Iran is being “set up” through terrorist attacks timed to make any military action in the region immediately look like Iran “out of control.” More attacks on scientists and their families are planned until international tensions are high enough for a “false flag” terror attack on the United States to seem plausible.

ISRAELI SUBMARINE LAUNCHED MISSILES

Key media assets have been warning that a major story can be expected.

It will be claimed Iran attacked the United States in retaliation for terrorist acts Iran now blames on Israel and the United States. In truth, these acts are meant to be intentional provocations, but it is clearly understood that Iran is incapable of acting. Russia has never delivered the advanced air defense system Iran needs and with virtually no air force, Iran is incapable of resisting an American onslaught.

A SIGNATURE MOSSAD OPERATION

The attacks have killed one scientist and wounded another. The wives of both men were wounded. Israel has done everything but announce that it planned and executed these attacks and is planning more. Iran is being dared to respond but, in fact, no response by Iran will be necessary. Sources tell us that an act of war against the United States, one which can be blamed on Iran, is in the planning.

The attacks inside Iran are staged from Azerbaijan, Afghanistan and Baluchistan, a remote province of Pakistan. Each of these nations has surrendered control of border regions with Iran to intelligence agencies, including the CIA, Mossad and MI-6. All have separatist movements with ties to Israel and India.

The Baloch separatist group, Jundullah, funded by the CIA and operated by the Mossad, acts for Israel much as Hizbollah acts for Iran in Lebanon. Regular terror attacks inside Iran are staged, not only military targets but mosque bombings and assassinations. Jundullah, the PKK in Turkey and Kurdistan, the Tehrik-i-Taliban in Pakistan, all are operated by Israel as surrogates, attacking Turkey, Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan and sometimes American forces as well.

WIKILEAKS TIMING

There is now little doubt that Wikileaks is an intelligence operation managed from Tel Aviv, carrying out Israeli foreign policy. The most recent “leaks” have successfully reset the diplomatic stage in the Middle East, exposing undercurrents of animosity against Iran while destroying American diplomatic credibility.

Were a crisis in the region to arise, and one is already in motion thanks to the Israeli terrorists openly operating inside Iran, the United States would now be hamstrung in attempts to foster a regional settlement. Nobody is talking, not anymore, not when anything said will be in the newspapers and nobody is trusting the United States. President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton have been exposed as highly suspicious of Gulf region allies.

As clear as it was, from the outset, that Wikileaks is an intelligence operation of Israel, making use of their extensive network within the Departments of Defense and State, staffed by hundreds of “dual citizens,” it is really the powerful Israeli lobby, AIPAC, that makes it all possible.

AIPAC SPYING ACCUSATIONS

Former AIPAC lobbyist, Steve Rosen, an employee we have been informed was fired, not for spying against the United States but being “caught,” is suing the organization for defamation. He claims to have extensive files outlining spy operations by AIPAC that penetrate every aspect of America’s national security, information he claims the FBI has had all along, has had but has ignored.

Rosen claims, in a sense, that AIPAC is a spy organization.

AIPAC, the single most powerful organization in American politics, no member of congress, no president has ever held office without their blessing, has long been reputed to be a foreign lobby. However, loopholes created specifically for AIPAC allow it to circumvent all regulations that help protect America from foreign influences.

Now it is believed that the information Rosen is referring to is actually Wikileaks itself and that AIPAC is, in fact, Wikileaks.

AMERICA, NOT THE SAME “RUBES” AS ON 9/11

One question that is never asked in the United States is how many American believe 9/11 was not what it seemed. After ABC’s Jon Faine attacked Kevin Bracken, a popular Australian labor leader, a poll with over 10,000 respondents showed 77% support for a 9/11 conspiracy. Though Bracken never accused Israel, Jon Faine was clear. Faine believed that, if 9/11 was a “false flag” that Israel would be blamed.

Though it isn’t clear how many Americans support one of the several 9/11 conspiracies, with or without Israel’s involvement, one thing is clear. When a suspected terrorist is arrested and a terrorist plot is uncovered, Americans seem unconcerned and millions are clearly skeptical. The current car bomb threat in Portland, Oregon is one such incident. There is no news followup, no internet chatter, nothing on “talk radio.” Most Americans assume the FBI invented the whole thing. Though this is probably not true, it is far easier to convince the average American the FBI has “gone bad” that of terrorist plotters.

A decade of phony alerts, airport hassles and outright lies have worn Americans out on terrorism. If asked, Americans would say, “bring it on.” However, it is because they fear real terrorists much less than their own political leaders, both former and current.

PLANS FOR A “WIKI-WAR”

The geopolitical goals of a “Wiki-War” are potentially unlimited. The China-Iran-Pakistan axis, one that really doesn’t yet exist, could be preempted. Turkey can be isolated from its Islamic neighbors and intimidated. More likely, Israeli expansion is looking toward Western Iraq, where Israel has maintained a foothold in Mosul, near the Syrian border, for decades. Israel believes Western Iraq is as much a part of Israel as Jerusalem itself, tracing their stake on the region back 3500 years.

Israel has managed to play Chaldean Christian groups against their Shiite neighbors, who have longstanding enmity toward their Sunni countrymen, a region ripe for plucking. With Iran crushed by the United States, a nation whose economic viability would face immediate collapse with the closing of Persian Gulf oil supplies, a power vacuum would immediately open. Wikileaks has had significant success in neutering America’s diplomatic capabilities, leaving Israel as the regions only military force.

The “Wiki-War” is dependent on Iran having no air force and poor air defenses. With these crippling problems and a “defense only” capability aimed at shutting off the world’s oil supply, an air campaign against Iran will be devastatingly successful. Iran is virtually defenseless against it.

When the oil stops and the banks and stock markets crash, the exodus of “dual citizens” will begin.

Secret US Embassy Cables

Wikileaks began on Sunday November 28th publishing 251,287 leaked United States embassy cables, the largest set of confidential documents ever to be released into the public domain. The documents will give people around the world an unprecedented insight into US Government foreign activities.
The cables, which date from 1966 up until the end of February this year, contain confidential communications between 274 embassies in countries throughout the world and the State Department in Washington DC. 15,652 of the cables are classified Secret.

The embassy cables will be released in stages over the next few months. The subject matter of these cables is of such importance, and the geographical spread so broad, that to do otherwise would not do this material justice.

The cables show the extent of US spying on its allies and the UN; turning a blind eye to corruption and human rights abuse in “client states”; backroom deals with supposedly neutral countries; lobbying for US corporations; and the measures US diplomats take to advance those who have access to them.

This document release reveals the contradictions between the US’s public persona and what it says behind closed doors – and shows that if citizens in a democracy want their governments to reflect their wishes, they should ask to see what’s going on behind the scenes.

Every American schoolchild is taught that George Washington – the country’s first President – could not tell a lie. If the administrations of his successors lived up to the same principle, today’s document flood would be a mere embarrassment. Instead, the US Government has been warning governments — even the most corrupt — around the world about the coming leaks and is bracing itself for the exposures.

The full set consists of 251,287 documents, comprising 261,276,536 words (seven times the size of “The Iraq War Logs”, the world’s previously largest classified information release).

The cables cover from 28th December 1966 to 28th February 2010 and originate from 274 embassies, consulates and diplomatic missions.

Lieberman urges Europe embassies to use ‘allies’ in PR efforts

    New advocacy campaign to begin early next year, will make extensive use of professional advocacy and public relations experts by Israeli embassies in Europe.
    By Barak Ravid 

    The Foreign Minister is planning to initiate a new public relations campaign in a number of European capitals early next year. The campaign, which will make extensive use of professional advocacy and public relations experts by Israeli embassies in Europe, aims to also use as many as a thousand people in each country, who will be willing to volunteer to spread Israel’s message.

    A week ago, the embassies of Israel in London, Berlin, Rome, Madrid, Paris, The Hague, Oslo, and Copenhagen were informed about the basic principles of the new public relations plan.

    “It was decided to give public relations emphasis in the countries you are serving,” Naor Gilon, who heads the Western Europe division at the ministry, wrote the envoys.

    “The Foreign Minister is very interested in this campaign and intends to meet with you on the issue at a meeting of ambassadors,” the message wrote, referring to a meeting that is scheduled to take place next month.

    The Foreign Ministry is putting its money on the gambit too, doubling the public relations budgets of the embassies in the nine capitals in Europe for next year.

    Each ambassador was instructed to prepare, by January 16, a list of at least 1,000 “allies” who will be routinely briefed by the embassy for advocacy and public relations. These “allies” will have to be willing to take action on behalf of Israel, through support demonstrations and rallies, in publishing articles in the press, etc.

    Among the types of persons that will be sought to assist in the campaign will be members of the local Jewish community, activists in Christian organizations, journalists, politicians, intellectuals, academics and activists in student organizations.

    The novelty of this campaign is that it will not rely on the work only of Israeli diplomats and volunteer supporters, but on professional lobbying and public relations companies hired by the embassies.

    The instructions from the Foreign Ministry to the embassies is that the firms not be “advertising firms but companies that will assist the embassy in its work vis-a-vis influential elements.”

    The professional lobbyists and PR agents will be provided with materials from the embassies, and which will be produced by a special team at the Foreign Ministry.

    The Foreign Ministry team will produce three types of materials: political messages, in which Israel’s positions on the peace process, the settlements, etc. will be encapsulated; “branding” messages which will position Israel in specific areas of activity, such as technology, economy, tourism, etc.; and messages about problematic developments in the Middle East which are not directly related to Israel, such as human rights in Iran or Syria, Hezbollah’s take over in Lebanon, etc.

    The ministry has also instructed the ambassadors in those nine capitals to focus their activities on organizing groups of influential persons from those countries to visit Israel.

    The ambassadors were also instructed to hold, at least once a month, a high profile public event.

    The public relations campaign will be evaluated in two surveys that the ambassadors were instructed to carry out during 2011, and reports every three months on the work of the “allies.”

    bandannie totally agrees with this comment at Ha’aretz : “It’s not like we don’t have already enough Israeli propaganda in Europe and a PR campaign can easily backfire especially regards to the public opinion. Just stay quiet, end the occupation and make peace with your neighbors. Then you won’t need any PR… As I see now the real goal is to create “facts on the ground” grab more and more land and try to divert the public opinion with PR. It will not work…”
