Major Media Proliferate Anti-Iran Propaganda

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

US, Western, and Israeli media are complicit with their ruling regimes in waging propaganda war on nonbelligerent Iran threatening no one.

Time and again, the Islamic Republic is accused of all sorts of things it had nothing to do with.

Confirmed by IAEA monitors, the world community knows that Iran’s legitimate nuclear program has no military component.

Yet the US, other Western, and Israeli regimes falsely claim that what doesn’t exist threatens their security.

On March 3, a Haaretz anti-Iran propaganda report said the following:

Israel “blam(ed) Tehran for the worst oil spill in Israel’s history in mid-February (sic),” adding:

Environmental Protection Minister Gila Gamliel called what happened a “terror” incident — automatically blaming Iran for what surely was a garden variety oil spill that happens all too often worldwide.

No evidence links Iran to what caused hundreds of tons of oil tar to soil Israel’s Mediterranean coastline, Lebanon similarly affected.

Whenever regional incidents happen, Iran virtually always is falsely blamed.

Despite no corroborating evidence, Gamliel wrongfully accused Iran of an “environmental attack (sic),” adding:

“Iran is engaged in terrorism not only with the help of nuclear weapons (sic) or by trying to establish itself along our borders (sic).” 

“Iran is waging terrorism by harming the environment (sic).” 

“Our struggle against pollution and harm to the environment is a fight which spans across countries (sic).”

No evidence exists to blame Iran for the spill, so Gamliel intends to invent it.

Haaretz failed to explain that time and again Iran is falsely blamed for what it had nothing to do with.

Nor does it set the record straight about Israel as the region’s only armed and dangerous nuclear state— or that Iran bans development of nukes and threatens no one.

Separately, Fox News propaganda  cited disinformation with no credibility by an anti-Iran terror group.

Defying reality, the so-called National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) falsely claimed that it “uncovered new evidence of yet another undeclared nuclear site (sic) that has since been scrubbed clean (sic),” Fox News reported.

The NCRI coalition of extremist elements is led by the so-called People’s Mujahedin of Iran (the MEK).

Until 2012, the group was a State Department-designated terrorist organization.

It operates the same way now, violence and vandalism its specialties, supported by bipartisan US Iranophobes, using the group as a dagger against sovereign Islamic Republic independence. 

Investigative journalist Seymour Hersh earlier called the MEK a Western intelligence-linked group, covertly funded for anti-Iranian terrorist activities, supplying their operatives with “arms and intelligence.” 

The CIA and Pentagon likely continue to arm, fund, and train its operatives, using them as a US war OF terror instrument against regional peace and stability.

Targeted assassinations of Iranian nuclear scientists were carried out by MEK members — financed and trained by Israel’s Mossad.

According to Fox News, the NCRI “gave more (fake news) information on the site located in Iran’s Abadeh region.”

Unlike undisclosed Israeli programs illegally involved in developing nukes and other banned weapons, Iran is scrupulously transparent about its legitimate nuclear program.

The NCRI has no credibility. Yet Fox News quoted one of the terrorist group’s officials involved in anti-Iran mass deception — spreading Big Lies part of his mission.

Iran and other nations free from US control are targeted this way.

At the same time, Western and Israeli media ignore US, NATO and Jewish state high crimes of war, against humanity, and other major breaches of international law.

A Final Comment

Thursday on Fox & Friends, unindicted war criminal/Iranophobe Netanyahu was given airtime to lie and otherwise deceive viewers about Iran, falsely saying the following:

“(W)e are not going to let a bunch of ayatollahs wipe us out from the face the earth or from the map of history (sic).” 

“So I will do everything in my power to prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons” it doesn’t seek, never did, and wants nations like nuclear armed and dangerous Israel to eliminate their arsenals and other terror weapons.

No respectable news organization would give Netanyahu or other rogue actor like him air time for hate-mongering Big Lies.

Yet Fox and other Western media feature him and other war criminals, notably US ones.
