Haaretz Praises Netanyahu’s UNGA Bald-Faced Lies About Iran

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

His latest General Assembly ticking Iran bomb stunt again used the UN General Assembly as a platform for turning truth on its head about Iran.

Haaretz bought what the world community knows is utter rubbish. The Islamic Republic abhors nuclear weapons, has no program to develop them, and wants them eliminated.

Israel is the region’s only nuclear armed and dangerous state. Netanyahu and Haaretz were silent about its open secret.

It’s been well known for decades – notably since former Israeli nuclear technician/whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu’s 1986 revelations, verified as accurate. An earlier Pentagon report provided detailed information about Israeli nuclear weapons.

Netanyahu’s rage, bluster and dissembling lost him credibility long ago. His UN and other addresses make painful listening, notably for his militant hostility toward Iran – wanting regime change along with Washington.

Haaretz ignored his bald-faced lies, calling his September 27 address “one of his most professional, persuasive and effective appearances,” adding: 

“Well equipped with Israeli intelligence achievements, he formulated a precise and credible indictment against Iran and its proxies in the Middle East.”

Fact: No ticking Iran bomb exists, none planned or being developed. Not a shred of credible evidence suggests otherwise.

Fact: 12 consecutive IAEA reports affirmed full Iranian compliance with JCPOA provisions.

Last May, Netanyahu turned truth on its head, claiming Israel has thousands of incriminating documents, charts, presentations, photos and videos, showing Tehran lied for years to the international community.

Like always, he presented no credible evidence backing his accusations because none exists.

There’s no secret Iranian Project Amad nuclear weapons program to “design, produce and test 5 warheads, each of 10 kilotons TNT yield for integration on a missile,” as he falsely claimed.

Netanyahu repeatedly lies about Iran. Nothing he says about the Islamic Republic, as well as Syria, the Palestinians, and most everything else is credible.

His latest Big Lie about Iran fell flat like earlier ones, roaring:

“Today I’m disclosing for the first time that Iran has another secret facility in Tehran. A secret atomic warehouse for storing massive amounts of equipment and material for Iran’s secret nuclear weapons program.”

No secret Iranian “atomic warehouse” exists. His rants about governments he wants toppled are hate-mongering propaganda.

Haaretz claims they show “his phenomenal skills as a presenter on an international level of the Israeli case.” Polar opposite is true.

Israel is its own worst enemy, Netanyahu its most ruthlessly dangerous ever prime minister, unaccountable for repeated high crimes, belonging in prison, not high office.

Haaretz slammed Hezbollah, concurring with Netanyahu’s accusation that it’s “hiding facilities to upgrade precision missiles.”

The organization is a legitimate part of Lebanon’s government, democratically elected. Since established in the 1980s, its military wing never attacked another country. It threatens none now.

Its forces responded effectively against Israel’s 2006 aggression on Lebanon, embarrassing the IDF at the time, giving it pause about more aggression on the country.

Its fighters are legally involved in Syria, combatting US/Israeli-supported jihadists at Assad’s request. It’s not a terrorist organization, as falsely designated.

It’s an anti-imperial, anti-Zionist force to be reckoned with – entitled to have whatever legal weapons it wants for defense, never used for naked aggression the way Washington, NATO and Israel operate repeatedly against nations threatening no others.

Haaretz shamefully asked when will European leaders “holding fast to the nuclear agreement wake up and listen to the music Netanyahu is playing for them?”

Israel’s self-styled moderate broadsheet is as militantly hostile to Iran, Syria’s legitimate government, beleaguered Gazans, and other Palestinians, suffering under the yoke of Israel’s ruthless apartheid rule.
