Israel pushing US to attack Iran


Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolay Patrushev has said the threat of a US military attack against Iran, heavily supported by the US Israeli lobby, is escalating.

Patrushev, who served as Director of Russia’s Federal Security Service, the FSB from 1999 to 2008, believes the United States may get itself involved in yet another war, at least partially due to Israeli influence.

“There is a likelihood of a military conflict escalation, to which the Americans are being pushed by Israel,” he said in an interview with Interfax.

Americans who identify themselves as Jewish (but not necessarily religiously) are estimated at 6,489,000 (2.2% of the population) according to the US Census Bureau. Yet despite these modest numbers, Israel enjoys what could be described as disproportionate influence in US politics due to lobbying groups like the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

Some researchers argue that the US decision to invade Iraq, for example, was largely motivated by pressure from these pro-Israeli groups.

“There is little doubt that Israel and the Lobby were key factors in shaping the decision for war,” argue John J. Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt in a working paper published by the London Review of Books. “Without the Lobby’s efforts, the United States would have been far less likely to have gone to war in March 2003.”

More recently, the Republican Jewish Coalition declined to invite Texas Congressman Ron Paul – a top Republican contender to run against US President Barack Obama in November – to its presidential candidates’ forum, citing his “misguided and extreme views.”

Paul is a strong advocate for auditing the Federal Reserve, as well as ending America’s preoccupation with occupying foreign countries. He has also gone on the record as saying he would not support an attack on Iran, the only Republican candidate to make such a promise.

Paul told Iowa voters that he was against launching a preemptive strike on Iran because “they don’t threaten our national security.”

“If some other country thought they had to go to war with (Iran), that is their business,” he said, adding there is no proof Iran is building a nuclear weapon.

Despite the US mainstream media’s tendency to ignore Ron Paul, his “bring home the troops” message has found a receptive audience in the US, as many Americans are tired of watching their tax dollars fly out the window to fight foreign wars. Yet the US military juggernaut continues.

Just as the Bush administration’s “democracy-building” rhetoric got Washington deeply involved in Iraq, Patrushev says the new occupants of the White House are looking to turn Iran into a “loyal partner.”

“At the moment, the US views Iran as its main problem,” he said. “They are seeking to turn Tehran, their enemy, into a loyal partner, and for that purpose to change the ruling regime there by any means.”

Russia, China, India and a number of other countries are making efforts to resolve the Iranian problem peacefully and amicably.

“The result of these efforts has so far been insignificant because neither the US, nor Iran, seem very keen on it, albeit for various reasons,” the Security Council secretary says.

Various strategies – some obvious, others not – are being employed to end the showdown without resorting to violence.

“Economic sanctions are being applied, as is massive support for opposition forces, which can conduct a colored revolution there,” noted the Russian Security Council secretary.

“Unfortunately, tensions around Iran are not easing,” Patrushev concluded.

    The reviewer is very humorous by suggesting the Jews control everything. This is along the lines of the Nazis propaganda ministry. You couldn’t tell the truth if your life depended on it! You even failed in your rant to go where the real money is, which is the Arab lobby! In addition he casually fails to mention the Israeli’s do not control the worlds oil supply. He couldn’t get that one right but any fifth grader could! He conveniently fails to mention the US is the largest user of oil in the world and was ready to go after Saddam Hussein needing no influence by the Israeli lobby to do it. The fact that the Israeli lobby may be effective at getting the attention of their representatives in Washington, however this is just what lobbies do! They do not have any more influence than the Arab lobby or the Oil Lobby or any lobby! The article speaks of two authors John J. Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt who claim to know everything there is about Jews and the Israeli lobby. I read this book! These so called authors have no evidence of any kind to back up there statements. In fact they make half truths and stretch the truth in order to fit their viewpoint. The Israeli lobby is only interested in keeping the US and Israel in good relations.
    What these racists don’t tell you about Israel:
    Israeli scientists developed an Aids treatment that targets and destroys 40 percent of HIV-infected cells without affecting healthy cells.

    An Israeli nonprofit organization called Save a Childs Heart performs free open-heart surgeries for underprivileged children from around the world, regardless of race, religion, or ethnicity. Fory-nine percent of the patients are from Palestinian communities, Jordan, Iraq, and Morocco.

    Israel was among the first on the scene in Haiti to provide disaster relief. “The Israeli hospital…is the paramount medical center operating in Haiti… It receives the cases that other hospitals find difficult to manage. I didn’t see any Arab states rushing in and giving aid to help Haiti?

    An Israeli company developed ReWalk the first commercially viable upright walking assistance tool, enabling paraplegics to stand, walk, and climb stairs.
    An Israeli company developed a computerized system for adminsitering medications in order to prevent human error.Drip Irrigation was developed in Israel and has a utilization rate of 95 percent. It is now being adopted in other countries around the globe.
    Israel leads the world in water recycling. In addition, over 90 percent of Israels water heaters are solar powered.

    Instant messaging, firewall security software, Intel wireless computer chips, the Windows NT operating system, voicemail technology, VOIP technology, and the cell phone were all developed in Israel.

    In the entire Middle East, only Israel received a number -one rating for political rights from Freedom House, which evaluates democracy and freedom around the world.

    In Israel, gender equality is enshrined in law. Israel is one of the world’s most progressive countries regarding womens rights and opportunities. Women pursue all occupations, make up the majority of students in higher education, serve in the military and in prominent government positions, and have full reproductive rights and personal freedoms.

    This is just a sampling of the great things the Israelis do for others.

    Michael C is just a little man who need’s to blame others for his problems in life.
    He is in fact inadequate and jeolous the Israelis are so successful in what they do. He is envious and it shows in his article. Look how he refers to them as “Jewish Money Masters” as if no one else has succeeded with money, no one person or corporation. Only the Jewish Money Masters!
    If Israel were the 51st State of America we would be a lot better off than we are now…
    MC name the worlds richest! The whole list according to you would be all Jews! We know this is not the case! So BS to you!

    ISRAEL THE 51st STATE of AMERICA. Make no mistake about it, the JEWS control all that is the JEWunited States of America. They control the heart of the global system by controlling the USA, the financial system,the oil,the media, politicians, military, and are the main controllers of the biggest corporations on the planet. This global financial shadow power structure has been there for centuries,and has now gained control of most of the worlds assets. For they know that to control the money is to control all that money can buy. That is why they will destroy all who oppose their financial global empire and the power that goes with it. Rogue states, and rebels will be dealt with as can be seen by what happened to Saddam Hussein, Ghaddafi, Mubarak, and others who were of no further use to them, or who chose to rebel against them, were removed, violently if necessary. ISRAEL is just a garrison for the global agenda of those Jewish money masters as they seek total global control as they sweep across the middle east like a tsunami, heading for the Far East and dominance there to, to complete their global dominance and creation of their New World Order. The state of Israel is just a diversion by those Zionists as regards their real goal, which is world domination. Israel is expendable, and will be sacrificed on the altar for global control, for who would arm and financially support such an unstable piece of real estate surrounded by hardened millenia old enemies from a hostility that will never be resolved? A brilliant piece of political deception, typical of the political mind, using religion as its front to establish what many believe was some 4000 year old Abrahamic promise, in an ever growing secular world, when its true objectives are GLOBAL.
