U.S. Pushes Confrontation with Iran: Trump Warns of “Consequences,” Pompeo Likens Leaders to “Mafia”

  • Democracy Now! Published on Jul 23, 2018
    https://democracynow.org – President Donald Trump lashed out at Iran Sunday, warning he was prepared to unleash dire “consequences” on Iran if its president threatens the United States again. Trump’s threat came just hours after Rouhani’s speech earlier Sunday, in which the Iranian president warned the U.S. about pursuing a hostile policy against his government. Meanwhile, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gave a speech Sunday in which he compared Iran’s leaders to a “mafia” and promised unspecified backing for Iranians who are unhappy with their government. Pompeo spoke at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library outside Los Angeles. “This is not an administration that is pursuing a policy of actually trying to find a way to the negotiating table or striking a new deal,” says Trita Parsi, founder and president of the National Iranian American Council. “Everything they’re doing right now is only compatible with a policy of confrontation.”

Israel’s Only Policy on Gaza Is to Beat the Drums of War

    Plan to Establish Port in Cyprus for Gaza-Bound Goods ‘Fantastical’ – Analyst

    The talk about alleviating electricity supply problem in Gaza is just talk. Nothing will happen. There is a supply problem and it is caused by Israel. The real plan is to force all Palestinians into the North Sinai desert.
  • Israel’s Only Policy on Gaza Is to Beat the Drums of War
    by , https://www.haaretz.com/
    Israelis deserve a government that protects them. Instead it offers endless conflict, conscripts them, silences fallen soldiers’ families, and deflects responsibility for thousands of Palestinian deaths.

    Following the killing of Givati soldier Aviv Levi last week, another fragile ceasefire has taken hold, potentially averting a war this summer. Prior to the ceasefire, the violence on the Israel-Gaza border had begun to take more familiar form, with Hamas launching rockets at Israel and Israel striking targets in Gaza, and the Israel Defense Forces was preparing for war. The ceasefire, however, is clearly not a long-term solution.

    Two potential deviations from a march to war have recently gained traction. The first is a 2011 Israeli initiative designed to alleviate the blockade of Gaza with an offshore seaport. The plan would help improve the plummeting Gaza economy while also helping ensure security for Israel. The seaport plan is contingent on Hamas releasing two captive Israelis, Avera Mengistu and Hisham al-Sayed, and the remains of Oron Shaul and Hadar Goldin, two IDF soldiers killed during the 2014 war.

    Another plan to ease the humanitarian crisis in Gaza is a solar energy field Israel would build, perhaps with Gulf funding, to supply Gaza with continuous electricity.

    Let’s be clear: These are both good ideas that should be pursued. Beyond these plans, however, Israel’s government has thought up precious few solutions. It continues to treat Gaza as it has for the past 11 years, preferring to simply keep the IDF prepared for the next confrontation. IDF reserve units are now preparing for the next Gaza war as if it could happen this summer.

Europe Must Offer Plans for Full Implementation of Iran Nuclear Deal: Larijani

  • Europe Must Offer Plans for Full Implementation of Iran Nuclear Deal: Larijani
    by https://www.presstv.com/
    The speaker of Iran’s Parliament says European countries must offer their plans for the full implementation of a nuclear agreement signed between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries following withdrawal of the United States from the deal.

    Ali Larijani made the remarks in a meeting with Andreas Schieder, the managing parliamentary leader of the Social Democratic Party in Austria’s National Council, in Tehran on Sunday.

    Larijani emphasized that European countries must endeavor to implement the nuclear agreement, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), in the best possible manner.

    “Europe must present its approach and plans for the full implementation of the JCPOA,” the top Iranian parliamentarian pointed out.

    US President Donald Trump announced on May 8 that Washington was walking away from the nuclear agreement and that he planned to reinstate US nuclear sanctions on Iran and impose “the highest level” of economic bans on the Islamic Republic.

    Under the JCPOA, Iran undertook to put limits on its nuclear program in exchange for the removal of nuclear-related sanctions imposed against Tehran. Since the US president pulled Washington out of the nuclear deal, European countries have been scrambling to ensure that Iran gets enough economic benefits to persuade it to stay in the deal. The remaining parties have vowed to stay in the accord.

    Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said on July 15 that the European signatories to the nuclear deal must provide Tehran with necessary guarantees about the continued implementation of the deal.

Media Silent as Pacific Powers Prepare for Showdown with China

US-Pentagram message to China from the USS Stennis armada in the South China Sea: “Stop militarizing the South China Sea. Stop your military activities in the South China Sea. You are destabilizing Asia!” – Ironic propaganda!
USS Stennis Aircraft Carrier.

  • Media Silent as Pacific Powers Prepare for Showdown with China
    by https://www.rt.com/
    The US and its allies continue to implement a dangerous strategy to counter China’s growing influence in the Pacific.

    These days, it’s all but too easy to get distracted by the stories the mainstream media overhypes on a regular basis and overlook some of those more pressing stories which fall beneath the radar. When you aren’t being purposely distracted by Donald Trump’s Twitter account, how he mistreats the Queen of England or how he is supposedly too nice to Russian President Vladimir Putin – stories like those on the football World Cup and the heroic rescue story in Thailand tend to fill the gaps, and not much else.

    By watching the news on a regular basis, most of you probably wouldn’t even be aware that the major players in the entire Pacific theatre are preparing for showdown. Don’t say we didn’t warn you though; in March of this year I wrote an op-ed entitled“Australia and China on Pacific Ocean collision course and no one’s talking about it” in an honest attempt to get this story on the media’s radar.

    No one is still talking about it, but as time goes on the stakes appear to rise consistently. Of course, you are free to read the situation however you feel and dismiss it if you so choose, but it cannot be a mere coincidence that Australia and New Zealand are in talks to sign a new “wide-ranging” security pact with other nations in the South Pacific with a specific intent of confronting China’s expanding influence.

    Perhaps the reason has something to do with the recent Strategic Defence Policy Statement released by the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) which warned that China’s growing regional clout threatened the “values championed by the order’s traditional leaders” – whatever that means.

    “New Zealand’s national security remains directly tied to the stability of the Pacific. As Pacific island countries’ relationships with non-traditional partners continue to develop, traditional partners such as New Zealand and Australia will be challenged to maintain influence,”
     the NZDF report read.


    Oh, so that’s what it means. After what analysts have suggested was increased pressure from the US and Australia, New Zealand has had no choice but to change its tack and risk offending China by removing the reference to what it was once regarded as an “important strategic partner.” In response, China openly criticised New Zealand’s position, and asked that New Zealand “correct its wrong words and deeds.”

Israel Rejects Russian Plan To Keep Iranian Forces 100km From Golan Border

  • Israel Rejects Russian Plan To Keep Iranian Forces 100km From Golan Border
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    Israel has rejected a Russian proposal to keep Iranian forces in Syria at least 100 kilometers from the Syrian-Israeli recognized ceasefire line along the Golan Heights, Reuters reports, while Israeli leadership has further threatened to hold Assad responsible “for any Iranian aggression”.

    According to the breaking report, which cites an unnamed Israeli official, the issue came up during a meeting between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and a visiting Russian delegation led by Russia’s foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov:

    The official said that Netanyahu told Lavrov “we will not allow the Iranians to establish themselves even 100 kilometres from the border.”

    And crucially, the official paraphrased the following exchange from the closed door meeting: “Netanyahu told Lavrov Israel will maintain freedom of operation against Iranian entrenchment in all of Syria and will see Assad responsible for any Iranian aggression against Israel from Syrian territory because Assad is the one hosting the Iranians.”

Israeli War on Gaza Over Kites?

https://socioecohistory.wordpress.com/2011/05/26/ashkenazi-jews-are-not-descendents-of-the-biblical-israelites-2/

Revelation 2:9 – …. and I know the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.

  • Israeli War on Gaza Over Kites?
    by Stephen Lendman, https://www.globalresearch.ca/
    Hamas is a legitimate political organization, not a terrorist group as falsely designed by Israel and Washington in deference to the Jewish state.

    The shameful designation gives Israel an unjustifiable pretext to hold two million Gazans hostage under flagrantly unlawful land, sea and air blockade – an act of war by any standard.

    Gaza’s Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades military wing is no match for the might of Israel’s IDF – nuclear armed and dangerous, along with powerful ground, sea and aerial weapons able to turn the Strip to rubble barely resisted.

    The world community is a bystander in the face-off between Israel and all Palestinians – murdering, imprisoning, torturing, dispossessing, and otherwise brutalizing them with impunity.

    What’s been ongoing for 70 years continues with no end of it in prospect because world leaders are indifferent about Palestinian rights, uncaring about their longstanding suffering – beholden to Israel no matter how egregious its actions.

    As long as the Jewish state has US support, it’s free to get away with mass murder and much more – Hamas, other Palestinian victims, and others cross-border falsely blamed for Israeli high crimes committed against them.

    Kites, flaming or otherwise, do not justify Israeli war on two million trapped Gazans – virtually defenseless in the face of its might. Is this where things are heading – Israel’s fourth preemptive war of aggression on the Strip in the last decade?

    Supplemented by cross-border tank and artillery shelling, Israel terror-bombed dozens of Gazan sites on Friday – after days of hostilities launched earlier. For the 17th consecutive Great March of Return Friday, Israel used excessive lethal force against peaceful demonstrators – including against women, children, journalists and paramedics aiding the wounded. Israel considers defenseless civilians legitimate targets. Terror-bombing and otherwise brutalizing them is standard practice.

    Do IDF soldiers, airmen, and naval personnel ever question their high crimes? Have they no shame, no sense of decency, no idea of the difference between right and wrong? Do they simply follow orders blindly, ignoring the rule of law? For decades, they committed the most egregious of high crimes – naked aggression against targeted nations and Palestinians menacing no one.

    As long as the Jewish state exists, regional and world peace are threatened. Israel’s sordid history is blood-drenched, unmatched in modern times along with Washington’s war on humanity.

    The late Edward Said once called conditions in Occupied Palestine “a disheartening bloody impasse.” The Territories are a virtual isolated prison, an entire population being suffocated into submission or out of existence. Israeli viciousness is unrelenting, a nation transformed into a killing machine, Palestinians subjected to ruthless state terror.

    Zionism’s final solution is eliminating Palestinians by slow-motion genocide.
    Israel and its “Zionist agencies, forces and terrorist gangs ruthlessly (conduct) a systematic and comprehensive military, political, religious, economic, and cultural campaign with the intent to destroy in substantial part the national, ethnical, racial, and different religious group (Jews versus Muslims and Christians) constituting the Palestinian people,” Francis Boyle earlier explained, adding:

    “This Zionist/Israeli campaign has consisted of killing members of the Palestinian people in violation of Genocide Convention Article II(a).”

    It continues causing “serious bodily and mental harm to the Palestinian people in violation of Genocide Convention Article II(b).”

    The Jewish state deliberately and maliciously “inflicts on the Palestinian people conditions of life calculated to bring about their physical destruction in substantial part in violation of Article II(c) of the Genocide Convention.”

    Ilan Pappe
     explained:

    “(t)he  inhuman living conditions in (Gaza), the most dense area in the world, and one of the poorest human spaces in the northern hemisphere, disabl(ing) the people who live it to reconcile with the imprisonment Israel had imposed on them ever since 1967.”

    The rest of Occupied Palestine fares little better, subjected to dozens of brutalizing community raids weekly, numerous arrests and detentions, an entire population held hostage to an occupying power treating them like subhumans.

Trump Blasts Iran’s Rouhani: “Never, Ever Threaten The US Or Suffer Consequences Few Have Ever Suffered Before”

  • Trump Blasts Iran’s Rouhani: “Never, Ever Threaten The US Or Suffer Consequences Few Have Ever Suffered Before”
    by Tyler Durden, https://www.zerohedge.com/
    President Donald Trump launched a new verbal attack against Iran’s president Rouhani, vowing “consequences the likes of which few have ever suffered before” if Hassan Rouhani continues threatening America in a late-night Sunday all caps tweet.

    In the tweet, addressed to Rouhani, Trump said, “To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!”

    Trump’s threat was in response to the earlier warning by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, who on Sunday warned the US not to provoke Iran or halt Iranian oil exports, saying that “Americans must understand well that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace, and war with Iran is the mother of all wars” adding that “it would only lead to regret.”

    The head of Iran’s paramilitary Basij forces dismissed Trump’s words as part of a psychological war saying the U.S. “wouldn’t dare make the mistake of taking action against Iran,” Gholamhossein Gheybparvar said according to the semi-official Iranian Students’ News Agency.

    “The Iranian people and it’s armed forces will stand up to its enemies and will not yield. We believe that the way towards happiness and progress is resistance and defiance in the face of enemies and adversaries
    ,” he added.


    Trump’s threat, similar to ones Trump issued last year in warning North Korea about its nuclear weapons program, risks leading to a speedy escalation if neither side backs down, and traders quickly took notice as brent oil traded up 1% to $73.78 a barrel.

    The already tense relations between Washington and Tehran have been strained further by the US State Department’s campaign to subvert the Iranian government through propaganda. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced on Sunday that the US will be lending its support to dissidents in Iran with a new 24/7 Farsi-language channel and backing what he described as “the long-ignored voice of the Iranian people.”

U.S.-Iran Tensions Simmer as Trump and Rouhani Trade Threats

Pentagon: “Those damned Iranians! Let’s nuke them before they pee on us!”

  • U.S.-Iran Tensions Simmer as Trump and Rouhani Trade Threats
    by Nicholas Wadhams, https://www.bloombergquint.com/
    (Bloomberg) — U.S. President Donald Trump launched a new broadside against Iran, warning of unspecified “consequences” if Hassan Rouhani continues threatening America.

    In a Twitter post late Sunday, Trump said, “To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!”

    The threat — similar to ones Trump issued last year in warning North Korea about its rapidly improving nuclear weapons program — risks leading to a speedy escalation if neither side backs down. Oil rose as tensions over Iran countered growing concerns that trade protectionism would hit economic growth. Brent oil — the global benchmark — was trading up 1.12 percent at $73.89 a barrel as of 1:37 p.m. in London.

    National Security Adviser John Bolton echoed Trump’s message in a statement Monday morning but cast the threat as directed against actions that might be taken by the Iranian regime rather than rhetoric.

    “I spoke to the President over the last several days, and President Trump told me that if Iran does anything at all to the negative, they will pay a price like few countries have ever paid before,” Bolton said in a statement released by the White House.

    White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders declined to “broadcast” what actions Trump would be willing to take against Iran or what threat would prompt a response. “He’s monitoring and watching the actions of Iran. If needed, he will take what steps are necessary to protect people in this country and certainly to protect the world from nuclear proliferation,” Sanders told Fox News in an interview.

    Trump’s tweet came hours after Rouhani warned the U.S. against threatening Iranian oil exports and called for improved relations with neighbors, including rival Saudi Arabia.

    “We’re not fighting or at war with any country, but the enemies have to clearly understand that war with Iran will be the mother of all wars and likewise peace with Iran is the mother of all peace,” Rouhani said.
