Will Israel Blow Up Something and Falsely Blame It On Iran?

Will Israel Launch a False Flag Against Iran to Start War?

According to U.S. officials, Israel is training and supporting Iranian terrorists who are trying to topple the Iranian government. Those Israeli-funded terrorists have faked documents to falsely indicate that Iran is building a nuclear bomb. 1

Israel has admitted to previous use of false flag attacks to justify war against Middle Eastern nations.

For example, Israel admits that an Israeli terrorist cell operating in Egypt planted bombs in several buildings, including U.S. diplomatic facilities, then left behind “evidence” implicating the Arabs as the culprits (one of the bombs detonated prematurely, allowing the Egyptians to identify the bombers, and several of the Israelis later confessed) (and see this and this).

Numerous high-level government officials have warned that a false flag may be launched against Iran to start a war: 2

  • Ron Paul has warned of a “Gulf of Tonkin type incident” in Iran
  • The highly influential Brookings Institution wrote a report in 2009 called “Which Path to Persia?” which states (pages 84-85):

It would be far more preferable if the United States could cite an Iranian provocation as justification for the airstrikes before launching them. Clearly, the more outrageous, the more deadly, and the more unprovoked the Iranian action, the better off the United States would be.Of course, it would be very difficult for the United States to goad Iran into such a provocation without the rest of the world recognizing this game, which would then undermine it. (One method that would have some possibility of success would be to ratchet up covert regime change efforts in the hope that Tehran would retaliate overtly, or even semi-overtly, which could then be portrayed as an unprovoked act of Iranian aggression.)

  • A number of very high-level former intelligence officers – including several that personally briefed presidents every day on matters of national security – stated that better communications between the U.S. and Iran were needed to “reduce the danger of … covert, false-flag attack”

One of America’s top constitutional and military law experts – Jonathan Turley – writes today:

Many critics have argued that there is a concerted effort to push the United States into a war with Iran by supporters of Israel. Patrick Clawson, director of research for the highly influential pro-Israel Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP) think tank, seemed intent to prove those rumors true this week in comments as a luncheon on “How to Build US-Israeli Coordination on Preventing an Iranian Nuclear Breakout.” Clawson casually discusses how to create a false flag operation to push the U.S. into war to overcome any reluctance by the public. We have been discussing how many leaders like Senator Joe Lieberman had begun to use the same rhetoric that led to the last two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and how the suggest timing of an attack has been tied to the presidential election.

In his remarks, Clawson helpfully lists a series of historical events used to push the country into war like the Gulf of Tonkin incident that gave us the Vietnam War. Clawson expressed his frustration in acknowledging that it is “[v]ery hard for me to see how the United States President can get us to war with Iran.” However, there is hope. Clawson explains that the “traditional way” to get the country into a war is through false flags or manufactured incidents where Americans are killed. Thus, he observes, “we are in the game of using covert means against the Iranians, we could get nastier about it. So, if in fact the Iranians aren’t going to compromise, it would be best if somebody else started the war.”

The fact that one of the leading analysis for the WINEP would feel comfortable in making such comments is itself quite chilling. It indicates that such discussions have become sufficiently regular that it has creeped into public discussion. It is a measure of the secret pressure building to push this country into a third major war despite our crippling economic conditions and losses in military personnel. The assumption in Washington is that neither Romney nor Obama could oppose such a war. Even if Obama does not publicly support Israel, the assumption is that political allies of Israel in Washington can guarantee that we would offer extensive military loans and intelligence. Even if there is a delay in such military loans and support, the assumption is that Israel can go to war with the understanding that the United States will cover a significant portion of the costs. Moreover, in his remarkably candid remarks, Clawson shows how the U.S. can easily be forced into direct combat by pushing Iran to simply kill some Americans or sink a few of our ships. Then members would be clamoring for revenge. Notably, the Israelis have been ratcheting up the war rhetoric in pushing Iran, which predictably has now reserved the right to engage in a preemptive strike not just against Israeli but U.S. interests. We would then, again, find ourselves in a war without any public debate or collective decision.

While Clawson adds a passing caveat that he is not advocating such an approach, his remarks are clearly designed to show how the group can get the United States into a war for Israel if only we can get Iran to kill some of our citizens or soldiers. Those people are of course expendable props in Clawson’s realpolitik.

By the way, Clawson has been enlisted to give his insightful analysis at the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. He is also a member of the National Defense University’s Institute for National Strategic Studies. The World Bank connection is particularly interesting given the history with Paul Wolfowitz who pushed the U.S. into two disastrous wars in the Bush Administration and was rewarded with being made the head of the World Bank.

It is the callous disconnect that is most chilling in these remarks. Thousands of U.S. soldiers have died or have been crippled for life in these wars that have left the country near bankruptcy (and increasingly hostile “allies” in Afghanistan and Iraq). Those casualties and costs, however, appear immaterial in the discussion of supporting Israel in a war against Iran.

1 Top American and Israeli military and intelligence officials actually say that:

2 False flag attacks have been carried out against Iran in the past. For example, the CIA admits that it hired Iranians in the 1950′s to pose as Communists and stage bombings in Iran in order to turn the country against its democratically-elected prime minister

3 Saudi Arabia has also been supporting terrorists.

    Israel has already tried several false flags … India, Thailand, Georgia and then Bulgaria …

    The NYT immediately blamed Iranian surrogates for the Bulgarian bombings … and more !!!

    “The New York Times outrageously said if Israel’s accusation is true, “the Bulgarian blast would be the first successful attempt by Iranian operatives to kill Israelis in attacks abroad after a string of failed bomb plots targeting Israeli diplomats in Georgia, India and Thailand this year.”

    Israel has probably learned its’ lesson. They will need a really large false flag to get things rolling along.

    Yes, I believe that this is practically guaranteed.

    I can not imagine anything that could stop that, and it is also practically guaranteed that the mass media will misinform most people about what that event really means. … When somebody wants to start a fight, there does not seem to be any practical way to stop them, since they will just keep on provoking one, until they get it.

    Pretty weak how you always ignore the mountains of evidence implicating Israel in 9/11.

  • Oneisphorus

    The fact that Israeli lobbyists can openly call for a false flag shows the level of comfort that they feel with the amount of power they hold over the American people. You have to remember that the Bible is full of stories of the Israelites using deception in war, and so this is perfectly acceptable to Christian America. Christians will support Israel NO MATTER WHAT. They could pull the Sampson Option and the vast majority of Christians would twist it around in their minds to make Israel the good guys. It will take 100 years of deprogramming the churches before they see differently on this.

    ‘A former member of the British Parliament stated that “there is a very real danger” that the American government will stage a false flag terror attack in order to justify war against Iran’
    George Galloway is a current member of the British Parliament

  • Rehmat

    Well, Israel is known for staging false flag operations in the past to trap Americans to fight Jewish wars in the Muslim world. The Israeli attacks on USS Liberty, USS Cole, 9/11 and the latest murder of US ambassador in Libya are some of such examples.
    Desperate situations need desperate measures. So after all these years druming-up fear of Iran’s ‘Islamic Bomb’ in order to divert world’s attention from Israel’s neonazi policies, bearing no US attack on Iran – it makes sense to tapedo one of American warships in Iranian waters and start WW III. Ironically, now even Israel-Firster Henry Kissinger, too, has predicted that Israel will vanish within next ten years.

    There’s no question that a cornered jew will cause destruction and blame others. The question is WHAT will they do. Mike Rivero of WRH posits another theory, one which some credibility. Rivero suspects that Israel will hack the US banking computers and blame it on them. Two birds with one stone. Then the US will be free to join in the latest illegal invasion…… just a theory.

    Seems Milikovsky (Netanyahu) was involved in a nuclear weapons smuggling ring….I’m shocked!

    Africa
    for Africans, Asia for Asians, White Countries for Everybody

    Annihilation by Assimilation

    Every
    white country on earth is supposed to become multicultural and multiracial.
    EVERY white country is expected to end its own race and end its own culture. No
    one asks that of ANY non-white country.

    The
    Netherlands is more crowded than Japan, Belgium is more crowded than Taiwan,
    but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve the RACE problem by bringing in
    millions of third-worlders and assimilating and intermarrying with them.

    Everybody
    says the final solution to the RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY
    white countries to bring in the third world and assimilate with them.

    Immigration,
    tolerance, and especially assimilation are being used against the white race.

    All
    this immigration and intermarriage is for EVERY white country and ONLY white
    countries.

    Anti-white
    is called anti-racist, but it leads to the disappearance of one race and only
    one race, the white race. The real aim of anti-racism is to wipe out the white
    race or make it a minority anywhere it exists.

    It is genocide.

    It’s o.k.! The Jews are getting what is coming to them…..real soon!

    When Iran the mother of all religions……..destroys a society…They do tell that society many times b4! Take into consideration the fact that Israel found a hugely huge, I repeat, huge 60 meter wide 20 foot deep Star Of David carved into the ground in their own backyard. THIS DONE WITH HEAVY MACHINERY AS WELL. And they have no idea who did it. You can find it on Google Earth. Now… that is Iran’s trademark. Soon there will be no Jerusalem for you fake Christians to conquer. I will be so glad when they turn Palestine into another Chernobyl. If you were smart you would leave that region. You people have messed with the wrong faction of humans. You think Iran plays games. You think others very close to Iran don’t have nuclear weaponry already? Try researching a bit into Iranian History. You will find more than a dream of payback coming to the Israelite.

    Keep dreamin’ of a one world anything. The animals you consider Jews….have numbers on they foreheads. That number gets smaller every day past 12/21/12. It is going to get better for every race but the Jews. It’s written in history/stars! Don’t believe a stupid fiction book that writes a certain type of species as anything other than what they are….lying cheating deceiving deviants. Who should themselves be put into a Purgatory State for believing they can do anything better than me/you! When the proverbial poo goes down…I will be sippin’ a large glass of Champagne.

    *The word Jew doesn’t exist.

    *The word anti-Semite doesn’t exist either.

    *Thought you should know.
    *They made those words up to separate u from them. Don’t be fooled by the Neanderthal of a Yester-Millenium.
