Gholemreza Montazami and the New Horizon NGO are still sanctioned by the Zionist-occupied US Treasury Department, even though the Israeli mole responsible, Sigal Mandelker, was exposed and had to resign in disgrace. Now that Israeli-owned Trump is gone, maybe it’s time to revoke the sanctions and admit that the US and Iran share common interests—and a common enemy. –Kevin Barrett, VT Editor
Who Is America’s Greatest Enemy, Israel Or Iran?
By Gholemreza Montazami, Retired Iranian Diplomat and General Director of the International New Horizon Organization
December 25, 2021
Nearly three years ago John Mearsheimer wrote:
“…Iran is not a direct threat to the United States. It is not even an indirect threat to the United States. First, Iran does not have nuclear weapons and it has signed an agreement with the world’s major powers that makes it impossible for Tehran to develop nuclear weapons in the foreseeable future. Second, Iran does not have missiles that can strike the U.S. homeland. Third, Iran has weak conventional forces, which cannot be used against the United States or any country in the Middle East that is under the American security umbrella. Fourth, Iran is not a serious threat to attack another country in its region. It has not launched a war against another country even once in modern times, and there is no evidence that it is now preparing to take the offensive against any of its neighbors. Fifth, Iran is not the source of America’s terrorism problem. To the extent that any one country deserves that title, it is Saudi Arabia, not Iran…”1
It should be obvious to the American people who America’s real enemy is, especially given Mearsheimer’s past work on, “The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy”.2 The state of Israel has proven itself time and time again that Israel’s political lobby has used the US government and military to further Israel’s interests in the Middle East.
We at the New Horizon organization have been holding conferences for over 10 years where various personalities, such as journalists, political activists, American anti-Zionists including anti-Zionist Jews and others come and meet and make contributions and presentations to expose Zionist power in the US and the Western world and to also develop strategies on reducing or breaking this power.
We have never made any threats against the US government or America’s national or security interests in any of our conferences. We have been rewarded for all of our hard work by being sanctioned by the very government (the US government) which has repeatedly been used and exploited by the state of Israel. To make matters worse the US government placed the worst possible sanctions on our organization’s three key people (Nader Talebzadeh, Zeina Mehanna, Hamed Ghashghavi) and myself. We were designated as “Global Terrorists” which is a special categorization of terrorists which was created after 9/11.3 Also, conference participants from other countries have similarly been persecuted by the US government by being put on ‘no-fly’ lists.
We don’t blame the American people for the sanctions against our organization or the sanctions against Iran. We know that the American masses and patriots among them are victims of Zionist power inside their government. A recent survey showed that 54% of Americans see their fellow Americans as the main threat to them. Of those 48% who fear other countries, 52% fear China, Russia 12%, Afghanistan 5%, and Iran 4%.4
We fight against Zionism and Israel, which dominate the US government’s decision-making centers. These nefarious forces are a serious threat to American national and security interests, and to the American people. My country and our organization are fighting for the American people against the most dangerous threat and enemy to the American and Iranian peoples.
One of the main reasons that Israel has been so determined to overthrow our government is because we have consistently supported Palestinian resistance to Israeli oppression and tyranny. No other country in the world except us can provide arms and missiles to Hamas to resist Israel’s illegal occupation of Palestinian land. No other country in the world could give even a bullet to help support the Palestinians against their oppressors.
The US government because of Israel has imposed so many sanctions on us that we’ve become the most sanctioned country in human history. Instead of sanctioning us the US government should be giving us praise and give us the financial aid which Israel has been receiving since 1948. The main reason we should receive this praise and aid is because Iran has consistently used its money and resources against the greatest common enemy of our two countries. Iran has done far more for the American people by resisting Israel and Zionism than all of America’s war heroes combined.
Iran has served the American national interests and people more than the American military, security, intelligence and political systems. This is well known and understood by officials inside the security, intelligence, military and political establishments and the real patriots who work within the US government. This is also known by members of America’s traditional elite. We understand this situation very well and we do not wish to put these people in a difficult position. They know they will pay a very high price if they resist the will of the Zionists and their control over the various levels of government inside the US.
These enlightened people must do everything they can to raise awareness of Zionist power inside America. God Willing this greater awareness will hopefully lead to the creation of effective political opposition to resist Zionist power inside the US government.
Fortunately, we have been seeing some consistent organized opposition forming in the growing Palestinian solidarity movement, including the Boycott, Divestment Sanctions (BDS) campaign. This opposition has continued despite some Zionist successes in making criticism of Israel illegal in some countries. It is the US Constitution that protects this right to protest, so the Zionists are unable to stop the reaction by American citizens to form grassroots efforts to struggle for justice.
A growing number of people around the world are learning that Zionists are the most nefarious people and that they have repeatedly hurt the American and Iranian peoples. Some of the crimes committed against America by Israel and its Zionist supporters include, the Black Slave Trade,5 the creation of the Federal Reserve Bank and its ongoing campaign of debasing the US currency,6 the John F. Kennedy assassination,7 the sexual revolution,8 the pornography industry,9 the attack on the USS Liberty,10 Israeli espionage against the US, the organ trafficking industry, various economic crises over the last 100 years to name a few11 and the 9/11 operation. 12
The video clip (https://archive.org/details/israel-did-9-11-dr.-alan-sabrosky-u.-s-army-war- college/Israel+did+9_11+-+Dr.+Alan+Sabrosky+-+U.S+Army+War+College.mp4) in the footnotes section of this article provides some very logical commentary from Alan Sabrosky, a retired Marine officer who was a director of strategic studies at the US Army War college. He makes a compelling argument that 9/11 was a Mossad operation.12
It’s very important that the American people realize and understand that it is they who have used their blood and treasure in the service of Israel to invade and occupy Afghanistan and Iraq13 in the aftermath of 9/11. Thousands of American military personnel were killed and tens of thousands were injured, but not one Israeli soldier was killed or injured in these wars to protect and expand Israeli power in the Middle East.
It should be obvious to everyone by now that Israel has been the greatest beneficiary of “America’s War on Terror”. On top of this, it’s becoming clear to a growing number of people in America and throughout the world that Israel was behind the 9/11 operation. Had 9/11 never happened then Israel would have never been able to use the American military to attack and occupy Afghanistan and Iraq, and to push the US to wage a direct war against Syria.
Looking at today’s regional situation, we can see how Israel has been working very hard to use the US military to go to war against Iran by creating dangerous situations. The single biggest escalation of tensions came when the US military assassinated General Soleimani and within a year of that assassination the Mossad was involved in assassinating Dr. Fakhrizadeh. Some Israeli government officials later boasted that Israel was involved in influencing the US government to use the US military to assassinate General Soleimani.
Iran showed great restraint in its response by only firing missiles at one US military base in Ain Al-Assad, Iraq. Iran in a matter of minutes could have set fire to all the American military bases in the region and could have killed thousands of American troops. But Iran did not want American soldiers and officers to be sacrificed for Israel’s interests. The question we need to ask ourselves is, why do patriotic Americans, including people in the intelligence, security, and military communities and political leaders, allow American military personnel to be killed or humiliated to serve Israel’s interests?
This year especially, we’ve seen some serious provocations by the US navy to set off a conflict with the Iranian navy in the Persian Gulf. To make matters worse, Mossad’s chief has been very busy the last several months in trying to pressure or influence US government officials to try and find ways to set off a war in the region between America and Iran—a war which would result in a long-term stoppage of oil exports from the Middle East region which could lead to a global economic catastrophe.
Over the last 20 years a number of Israeli prime ministers took numerous trips to Washington to meet with presidents for the specific purpose of trying to push the US to go to war against Iran.14 Simultaneously Israel has worked very hard to prevent any good relations between the US and Iran. Their numerous attempts at sabotaging or derailing the creation and implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (Iran Nuclear Deal) are well known.
Originally Israel was dead set against the international nuclear agreement when the Obama administration agreed to it and signed off on it. After the deal began to be implemented, Israel made numerous attempts to derail the agreement and was eventually successful a little over a year after Trump took office. Because of Israeli pressure, Trump pulled the US out of the nuclear deal in May of 2018.
Recently Iran’s new presidential administration made a number of efforts to try and salvage the nuclear negotiations. While Iran was making these efforts, Israel began to increase its pressure against Germany, France and the UK to take a hard position against Iran in the nuclear discussions. Israel’s goal with this effort is to ensure that the entire agreement collapses, making it easier for Israel to set off a war between the US and Iran. If such a war does happen then the European powers will wind up losing even more than what America would lose in such a war. Also it’s very important that the Europeans understand that the destruction of the nuclear agreement will not benefit Europe; the only beneficiary of the agreement’s destruction will be Israel.
Israel’s primary goal has been to try and start a war between the US and Iran. Because of this Israel would never let the nuclear agreement move forward, because if it was successful then we could actually begin to see good relations between the US, the European powers and Iran. Israel could never accept such a positive and peaceful arrangement. At the same time, Israeli leaders know that they can’t attack Iran without US support. This is why Israel and its Zionist supporters have been working so hard on the Biden administration and the US Congress to prevent America from abiding to the terms of the original nuclear agreement.
There can be no doubt that the Zionist lobby will be working very hard throughout next year in the run up to the Congressional mid-term elections in November 2022. Their goal of course will be to use their money to support candidates and incumbents who will support Israel’s goals in preventing the US government from following the terms of the nuclear agreement.
While we try to remain hopeful that somehow Israel’s power will be curtailed or God Willing broken, we must be realistic about the situation and Israel’s never-ending efforts to protect and expand its power. Israel’s efforts could eventually lead to a full blown war, with Israel using America as a proxy to fight against Iran.
Iran would like to request from the American people that they do everything they can to prevent such a war. If such a war does happen then Iran requests from the American people that at least half of the troops used from the American side be taken directly from units of the Israeli Defense Force (IDF).
If Israel is so determined to use the US military as a mercenary force to go to war against Iran then it should directly invest in such a war by using its own military personnel. Our last request is that if a war does begin that the US military leaders have the Israeli soldiers wear blue and white uniforms so that our forces can easily find and target them on the battlefield. We don’t want to put ourselves in a situation where we have to shoot any American soldiers because too many American soldiers have already been killed or injured since 9/11 for Israel’s benefit.15, 16, 17
Our very last request is if Israel accepts such a military arrangement for a future war, then please do what you can to convince your government to let such a war against Iran commence as soon as possible.
