Falsely Blaming Victims for Crimes Committed Against Them

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

The blame game is a favorite US/Israeli tactic, used time and again, holding adversaries reponsible for what’s committed against them.

Both countries partner in each other’s wars of aggression and other hostile actions, Israel serving as a US junior partner, not the other way around. 

They’re allied in waging war on the Palestinian people, committing high crimes of war, against humanity, and slow motion genocide against them.

The world community of nations and world body have done nothing to hold fascist extremists, Zionist ideologues, and religious fundamentals running the Jewish state accountable for what no one should be allowed to get away with, including war on Syria and Lebanon without declaring it.

Francis Boyle earlier said that throughout its history, “the Israeli government and its predecessors in law – the Zionist agencies, forces, and terrorist gangs – have ruthlessly implemented 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.”

The late CCR president Michael Ratner accused Israel of committing “incremental genocide” against the Palestinian people.

Ilan Pappe stressed that there’s “no doubt” about it before, during, and after stealing most of its land, controlling it all with an iron fist, stealing oil, gas, water, and other valued resources belonging to the Palestinian people.

Israel’s illegal blockade of Gaza, solely for political reasons, aims to suffocate its two million people, the world community acquiescing by not demanding it end, isolating and otherwise punishing Israel until it does, along with for its illegal occupation of all Palestinian land.

US/Israeli crimes against Iran are well documented, the Jewish state guilty of assassinating its nuclear scientists, terror-bombing its military advisors in Syria, both countries waging cyberwar on the country, the US waging sanctions war to crush its economy, along with inflicting pain and suffering on its people.

Their ruling regimes are responsible for terrorist attacks on Iranian nuclear and other facilities. They fund extremist groups wanting its government toppled.

Tehran’s Supreme National Security Council Secretary Ali Shamkhani earlier blasted John Bolton’s connection to Iranian opposition Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK) terrorists, seeking forcible regime change.

He once minced no words saying US policy should “unequivocally” aim to “overthrow” the Iranian government.

US and Israeli extremists falsely accused Iran of all sorts of things it had nothing to do with.

Covert war by both countries has been ongoing against Iran for decades, the risk of things turning hot much greater since Trump took office.

On Monday, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) reported that it dismantled a terrorist gang in Iran’s northwest.

IRGC operations are ongoing throughout the country to discover, disrupt, and eliminate terrorists threats — actively supported by the US and Israel.

Iranian Admiral Ali Fadavi said “(a)s good and the evil cannot go together, they are always lined up against one another and this enmity and war is always on overtly and covertly.”

“The main feature of the Islamic Revolution is that it is rightful, and that is the main cause behind the global imperialism’s enmity against the Revolution.”

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyed Abbas Mousavi said his nation “will neither negotiate nor surrender (to) the US under pressure,” adding:

“On one hand, they talk about their unconditional or conditional readiness for direct or mediated talks with Iran, and on the other hand impose their maximum pressure against the people of Iran.”

“They themselves well know that if the sanctions and pressures were effective, they would have earned the results earlier.”

“There has been left no other kind of sanctions…to impose against Iran.” The tactic hasn’t worked for decades and won’t likely work now.

Trump’s notion of deal-making is all about everything for the US and its imperial partners at the expense of subjugating targeted nations and their people, terrorizing them into submission if unwilling to bend to his demands.
