US and UK Support Israeli Aggression Against Iran
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
A previous article said interventionist Blinken and his Israeli counterpart Yair Lapid discussed a joint Biden/Bennett regime response to a July 30 attack on the Liberian-flagged Japanese-owned Mercer Street tanker managed by Israeli-owned Zodiac Maritime.
Despite no evidence linking Iran to the incident, claims otherwise strongly denied by its Foreign Ministry, interventionist Blinken recited his usual bald-faced Big Lies on Sunday, saying:
The Biden regime is “confident that Iran conducted this attack (sic)” — citing no evidence because there is none, adding:
“We are working with our (imperial) partners to consider our next steps…”
On Monday, Britain’s deputy envoy to Israel Mark Power defied reality by claiming that the Jewish state “is threatened by this kind of activity (sic),” adding:
“(W)e’re working with (our partners) to decide on an appropriate…response (sic).”
“(W)e came to the conclusion, (that it’s) highly likely Iran conducted this attack (sic).”
Like Blinken, he cited no evidence because there’s none to cite.
Bennett regime foreign minister Lapid invented his own reality, falsely claiming that “intelligence materials (that don’t exist) prove” Iran’s involvement in what it had nothing to do with.
According to Israel’s Channel 12, IDF chief Aviv Kohavi and his UK counterpart Nick Carter agreed to coordinate a response against Iran — the Biden regime very much involved.
According to Kuwait’s Al-Jarida broadsheet, cited by Israeli Kan broadcasting:
Anonymous Western intelligence sources said Israel could target an Iranian port, one of its vessels at sea, or respond in another way — to what no evidence suggests Islamic Republic involvement.
The Times of Israel said neither Israeli or US officials provided information on the source of the incident — because they have nothing credible to report.
Yet the Jerusalem Post quoted Bennett going hyperbolic by claiming “with absolute certainty (sic) (that) Iran carried out the attack against (sic)” The Mercer, adding:
“The intelligence evidence for this exists (sic)” — while presenting nothing to support his over-the-top accusation.
Former head of Israeli military intelligence Amos Yadlin piled on similar anti-Iran accusations with no supportive evidence.
He also called on the Bennett regime to focus all-out on undermining the JCPOA and Iran’s ballistic missile program, wanting the country rendered vulnerable to IDF aggression.
An unnamed Israeli official said the Bennett regime is “is working with…Britain and the US…to advance…Security Council” condemnation of Iran — what Sino/Russian veto power can block.
In cahoots with their Western partners, Israel is also working on an international community response against Iran to further its own regional interests at the expense of Tehran’s.
Press TV reported that all of the above follows numerous “Israeli regime…assaults on cargo ships across the Persian Gulf region and elsewhere.”
Regional analyst Hohsen Saleh said the following on Press TV over the weekend:
“The Axis of Resistance won’t permit Israelis to commit any crimes without retaliation, whether from Yemen, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, Iran or elsewhere.”
Israeli officials “have to understand that resistance forces can reach them anywhere.”
“They have to re-calculate their existence or hostilities against resistance groups and factions, whether in Lebanon, Syria or Iraq.”
“All these groups are really willing to counterattack or retaliate against Israel’s acts of aggression.”
Israeli dark forces no longer can “deny their crimes against Iranian scientists and nuclear facilities, besides attacks on resistance groups stationed on the Iraqi-Syrian border.”
If attacked, Israeli and Western regional forces are highly vulnerable harsh Iranian retaliation — on Monday its Supreme National Security Council saying:
“Although the Islamic Republic of Iran considers threats posed by the officials of Western countries and the Zionist regime to be mostly of propaganda value, any measure against Iran’s interests and national security will be met with a strong and crushing response, with Washington and London being directly responsible for the consequences of such moves.”
If axis of evil Biden, Johnson and Bennett regimes challenge Iran’s national security, they’ll risk a bellyful retaliation in response.
