The Long History of Israel Gaming the 'Iranian Threat'

Gareth Porter

Western news media has feasted on Prime Minister Netanyahu’s talk and the reactions to it as a rare political spectacle rich in personalities in conflict. But the real story of Netanyahu’s speech is that he is continuing a long tradition in Israeli politics of demonising Iran to advance domestic and foreign policy interests.

The history of that practice, in which Netanyahu has played a central role going back nearly two decades, shows that it has been based on a conscious strategy of vastly exaggerating the threat from Iran.

It also looks like the most dangerous man in the Middle East is the warmongering ass that our Congress gave a huge standing ovation to.

Notice that there are very few comments on this topic. Now that EVERYONE knows that Google is a tool of the CIA/MIC people are afraid of confronting the truth of this article. Being labeled an antisemite in America is a death sentence for a public figure. Career ending label. AIPAC rules in the USA. Call for the total annihilation of All Muslims and Faux News will be interviewing you.
