The Reality Principle – Episode 3: “Iran: A Nation under Attack” with Ardeshir Ommani

2 November 2012 — www.boilingfrogspost.com 

Although most know Iran today as an international pariah, few pay any attention to the covert war being waged against the Islamic Republic of Iran every day.  From crippling economic sanctions to the assassination of scientists to the sabotage of critical infrastructure, Iran is under constant attack by her enemies.  Israel sees Iran as an obstacle to its own regional hegemonic designs, while the United States sees in Iran a dangerous model for other nations: economic and diplomatic independence outside the dominion of the US Empire.  Additionally, Iran is engaged in a long-term proxy war with Saudi Arabia, one that takes a number of forms and has various fronts.  Iran is a nation that is proud, rich in culture and history but, sadly, under perpetual assault by its enemies.

Guilty Until Proven Innocent: Extortion Against Standard Chartered Bank Shows Bias Against Iran By Danny Schechter

19 August 2012 — The News Dissector

 

Is This Incident A Retaliation Because A Bank Official Made A Disparaging Comment About US Hostility To Iran?

 

Johannesburg, South Africa: On the surface, it looked like a simple game of “Gotcha,” when New York Bank regulators blew the whistle on London’s Standard Chartered Bank for laundering money. The fact that the money was allegedly tied to Iran cast a major shadow on the allegations, given the Islamic Republic’s “bad guy” image in American policy circles.

Gilad Atzmon: In case you don’t realise how dangerous the Israeli Lobby Is

17 November, 2011 — Gilad Atzmon

isrl-iran.jpgIsraeli paper  Israel-Ayom reports today about a new ‘Congressional bill’ that would require the “American administration to support Israel in a move deemed necessary to defend itself against the Iranian nuclear threat.” 

Five Republican congressmen who visited Israel last week disclosed the bill.

The bill states an “expression of support for Israel’s right to defend its sovereignty and to protect the lives and safety of its citizens and use all necessary means to confront and eliminate the nuclear threat that emerges from the Islamic Republic of Iran, including use military force in the absence of other diplomatic means available in the near future.”

The initiator of the bill is Rep. Doug Lamborn (Colorado).

If you doubted the colossal danger imposed by the the ‘lobby’ you better wake up NOW!!!
