Netanyahu screwed up the Israeli open secret

Benjamin Netanyahu has recently shot himself in the foot by bragging that Israel is a nuclear power house in the world. He let the political cat out of the bag, and he obviously realized that he screwed up.

Michael Lofgren, a former defense budget analyst on Capitol Hill for more than thirty years, declared that the neoconservatives are “kind of like the terminator, they just don’t die. You would think they would be so discredited they would be shamed, but they have no shame.”[1]

It is the same thing with Benjamin Netanyahu. You would think that he would be a little cautious with his political maneuvering, but he is not. He has been an interesting fellow since the time he ascended to the Zionist throne in Israel. The man not only has no shame but he perpetuates the same Zionist lies virtually every time he opens his mouth.

Back in 2013, Netanyahu summoned the Hanukka slogan and said that “we have come to expel the darkness,” and “The darkness that threatens the world the most today is the darkness of a nuclear Iran. We are obligated to do everything possible to prevent that darkness. If possible, it is preferable to do this through diplomatic channels, and if not we will act as light unto the nations.”[2]

Netanyahu again declared: “I tell you and promise in the spirit of the Maccabees, we will not allow Iran to receive a military nuclear capability.”[3]

But Benjamin Netanyahu has recently shot himself in the foot by bragging that Israel is a nuclear power house in the world. He let the political cat out of the bag, and he obviously realized that he screwed up. As Reuters put it,

In an apparent slip of the tongue on Sunday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu described Israel as a nuclear power before correcting himself with a bashful nod and an embarrassed smile… ‘The significance of this project is that we are turning Israel into a nuclear power,” he said, before quickly correcting himself to say “energy power.’ He then paused for a beat, acknowledging his mistake with a smile, and then ploughed on with his comments.”

Do you now see the vital contradiction? The mad man in Tel Aviv is running around like a wild animal and telling the entire West to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons, but the same man is bragging about having nuclear weapons! In fact, Israel has hundreds of nuclear weapons.

Sebastien Roblin of the National Interest declared last month that “Israel Might Have as Many as 300 Nuclear Weapons. And Some Are in the ‘Ocean.’” We all knew that Israel had nuclear weapons,[4] but they have even placed them in the ocean? Listen to this:

“Unofficially, Tel Aviv wants everyone to know it has them, and doesn’t hesitate to make thinly-veiled references to its willingness to use them if confronted by an existential threat. Estimates on the size of Tel Aviv’s nuclear stockpile range from 80 to 300 nuclear weapons, the latter number exceeding China’s arsenal…

“Though Israel is the only nuclear-armed state in the Middle East, Tel Aviv is preoccupied by the fear that an adversary might one day attempt a first strike to destroy its nuclear missiles and strike planes on the ground before they can retaliate.”[5]

Shouldn’t that blatant inconsistency strike any rational person as odd? Israel is still manipulating the White House using one of their finest puppets (Donald Trump) to go after Iran, but Israeli officials don’t even want to think that having nuclear weapons themselves would create anti-Israeli reactions around much of the world. It gets even better:

“Israeli has aggressively targeted missile and nuclear technology programs in Iraq, Syria and Iran with air raids, sabotage and assassination campaigns. However, it also has developed a second-strike capability—that is, a survivable weapon which promises certain nuclear retaliation no matter how effective an enemy’s first strike.”[6]

When U.S. officials finally learned about Israel’s nuclear weapons back in the 1970s and 80s, they were completely shocked because they had underestimated Israel. The officials admitted when they first saw some of those warheads, “Our thought was ‘Holy shit!’ How could we have been so wrong? We always said, ‘So the Israelis got ten warheads? Okay. So what? Anybody can build those.’ All of a sudden we learned they’d become sophisticated. It blew everybody’s mind.’”[7]

Others in the Reagan administration were “paranoid.” One official declared, “It was kept away from the people at Z Division [a special group that provides the United States Intelligence Community with information about foreign nuclear programs].”[8]

This Zionist lagoon is still causing political problems in the Middle East because the Israeli regime does not believe in a moral universe. As the late rabbi Rabbi Ovadia Yosef put it:

“I don’t believe in Western morality. Living by Torah [the Talmud, of course] values will make us a light unto the nations who suffer defeat because of a disastrous morality of human invention.”[9]

Unless we hold Israeli officials accountable, they will continue to threaten virtually everything we all hold dear. As Israeli historian Martin van Creveld put it back in 2003:

“We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets for our air force…. We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that that will happen before Israel goes under.”[10]
