Alliance Blackmail: Israel’s Opposition to the Iran Nuclear Agreement

Richard Falk

The Vienna Agreement [formally labeled by diplospeak as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)] reached by the P5 + 1 on July 14, 2015 has been aptly hailed as a political breakthrough, not only because it calms regional worries about Iran’s nuclear program, but more so because it has the potential to remove an ugly dimension of conflict from the regional turmoil in the Middle East.

Yes, some person's dream is another person's nightmare. Oren and Netanyahooey dream of Israel ruling the ME, with nukes as the backup, and, only fall back position. Totally looney tunes, of course, but it's religion, guns and major money so stranger sxit has happened. The bought and sold treasonous characters in AIPAC and the Republican Party love those 3, too, and it gets them flat earther votes. And, suppresses the gerrymandered smarter opposition, as well. What's not to like if you're a death cult, with a paranoid bent and your most important ally lives in the 16th Century and kind of likes it. They dream of empire; Israel and U.S. unity, and the rest of us would just settle for some peace and quiet. For a change.

What the "religious" psychopaths (or ordinary thieves) in power in Israel fear is peace itself. With peace and the absence of conflict as a manufactured and nurtured deflection mechanism, the world would increase demands that Israel end The Occupation, adhere to International Law and numerous UN resolutions and create in good-faith (apparently beyond their ability) the long delayed/sabotaged Palestinian state. The Iran deal threatens to remove one more war and conflict Israel's terrorists use as excuses for endless occupation brutalization and wholesale killing/incarceration/home & Olive grove destruction/water resource thefts (or destruction by Israel) and so many other crimes and racist atrocities/ethnic cleansing they commit daily!

AIPAC and their treasonous Dem and Repub partners in Congress subvert US sovereignty and foreign policy to further the racism and terrorism of a foreign power. Israel-firsters and dual-citizenship government officials (another treason) hold first loyalty to a foreign power - no other nation on Earth tolerates this kind of open subversion/treason, why do we?
