  1. Israel is always looking for an excuse to create instability. Whether it's in the occupied territories or surrounding areas such as Lebanon and Syria. They feed on instability and division. This is how they can continue their occupation and expansion and prevent the other sides from gaining strength and a stronger voice through stability. It has been a while since their carnage in the Gaza strip and with the formation of a unified Palestinian government, it was time to release the fireworks.
  2. The U.S. supported Saddam with their use of chemical weapons against its own people and the Iranians. This is also out in the open, but not many people, especially the apologists, are able to acknowledge this dark truth. http://www.foreignpolicy.com/articles/2013/08/25/secret_cia_files_prove_america_helped_saddam_as_he_gassed_iran
  3. Two former Israeli prime ministers were leaders of Zionist terrorist groups. Terrorist groups such as Lehi and Irgun. These are groups who massacred innocent people and burnt down homes to drive them out of their homes and villages. These are groups who blew up hotels, such as the King David hotel, where over 90 people were killed. This is how Israel was born. I'd continue, but first you need to learn about and acknowledge Zionism's terrorist roots before we can move forward to learn about how Israel and Zionism terrorize the Palestinians today.
  4. The Zionists kidnap Palestinians on a daily basis. They are kept in prisons, tortured and in some occasions, die as a result. Some of the kidnapped, who are held without charge and tortured are children. Zionism is terrorism. Zionism used terrorism to push its agenda just before Israel came to be and it continues to use terrorism in its occupation and expansionism.
  5. The Zionist policy against the Palestinians is terrorism.
  6. Israel is a racist state that has been terrorizing Palestinians for decades with the support of USA and the UK. The world is learning day by day, despite the distortions from the propaganda machine that depicts the victim as the aggressor and vise versa. Today's Zionists share the same fascist mentality of Germans who killed many Jews in the past. Now, thanks to videos and ease of communication, there is a backlash against the Zionist propaganda. Many progressive Jews too are denouncing the apartheid regime in Israel. History will treat Zionism in the same category with Fascism.  Here is the
  7. 16 year-old Mohammed Abu Khudair was found dead in East Jerusalem, the victim of what appears to be a price tag attack following the killing of three Israeli teenagers on the West Bank. He was the 10th Palestinian killed by the IDF or right-wing extremists in the last two weeks.
  8. I would take the Israeli and American General's opinion over yours and Netanyahu's. Of course the Western governments would not want any country to go to nuclear. Especially a country that doesn't sing the same political tunes as most of the West. Namely, its stance and criticism of Israel. I am glad to see that the U.S. is engaging Iran. This is the only way to go.
  9. I am not sure how your comments are a response to mine. I don't think you really understood my comments.
  10. I think Iran has more to lose than Israel since Iran does not have the top military in the world backing it up and protecting it. The U.S. has bases surrounding Iran, pointing its weapons at it. If Iran were to ever think about using nuclear weapons (after having the technology), they would be attacked right away. The notion that Israel should be able to get away with its aggressive military actions, undeclared nuclear weapons, unwillingness to sign the NPT, its continuous expansion in the Occupied Territories because it is "about its survival" or "about its security" is an old and tired excu
  11. Start owning, rather than denying. Not one comment about the role that the West has had in festering and nurturing these extremist groups with their actions around the world.
  12. Bibi's words have no weight or credibility. He is just a slimey salesman who has been crying about how Iran is a few months away from nuclear weapons since the early 90's. The rest of the quotes you have posted do not discount what I posted earlier, which is that the Iranians are not 'crazy' or irrational. The truth is that you cannot have a militarily aggressive country like Israel, who is not willing to sign the NPT or allow inspections of their nuclear weapons and expect its neighbours to sit silent. Threats and sanctions did not stop Iran's nuclear program. It increased it. We're now se
  13. Bush Jr. should apologize to Daddy. So should Cheney and Rumsfeld. He was right and they were wrong. Empires usually fall after they arrogantly expand and spread themselves thin. The short-sighted policy always prove to be unsustainable. Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld have weakened America.
  14. Iraq could be on its way to being Syria #2. It looks like Iran is reaching out to the U.S. to assist them with the Al Quaeda problem. Just like they did with Afghanistan. Iran offered the same collaboration in Afghanistan after 9/11. The Bush administration blew it. Maybe this administration will make the correct decision this time. Exclusive: Alarmed by Iraq, Iran open to shared role with U.S. - Iran official Tehran is open to the possibility of working with the United States to support Baghdad, the senior official said. "We can work with Americans to end the insurgency in the Middle East
  15. The previous administration was all about the bumper sticker slogans. It started when he prematurely claimed "Mission Accomplished". Throwing your hands in the air and blaming the doomed policy started by the previous administration on Obama is not an honest way to look at the situation. All you are doing is feeding your need to partisanship.
  16. Of all the four countries: North Korea, Pakistan, Iran and Israel, only Israel has been getting into wars with its neighbours, consistently for the past 40 years. The circumstances of each of those have varied but an identity has been formed: Israel is a militarily aggressive country. Sure, the powerful PR machine has successfully painted the picture of a country cornered by aggressive, Jew-hating countries; case in point: "eliminate all traces of Israel and all traces of the Jewish population from the planet. Period." However, these claims are contrary to reality for several reasons. One bein
  17. You may think that, but both U.S. and Israeli officials have said that Iran is a "rational player". These are generals who know more than puppet politicians who are paid by lobby groups to tell tales to fit a narrative and an agenda. The former head of Israel's intelligence service believes the Iranian regime is a rational one - Link I agree with Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey who described Iran as a "rational actor" on my program a couple of weeks ago. - Farid Zakaria on General Dempsey Pakistan, North Korea and even Israel are what we should be worried abo
  18. The above is a misinformed comment. Iran and Taliban are rivals and see each other as enemies. I rather see an Iran friendly government then a government controlled by al quaeda and other extremist group. The U.S. would be wise not to support Saudi and their terrorist groups like Al Quaeda.
