1. The UN General assembly meeting; specifically Ahmadinejad's address and the response to it. A number of Western representatives - mainly from the Echellon countries and their surrogates - walked out on a clearly pre-arranged cue. The Daily Telegraph reporting of the matter was typical - "Britain walks out of Iran's Ahmadinejad's anti-Semitic speech at UN" was the headline. A US State Department spokesman accused Ahmadinejad of using “hateful, offensive and anti-Semitic rhetoric”. Stephen Harper stated "Ahmadinejad said absolutely repugnant things about Israel."
The reality? - The speech did not contain the words 'Jewish' or 'Holocaust' at all and the word 'Jews' appeared just once as in "....[preparing for] a conducive ground for all Palestinian populations, including Muslims, Christians and Jews to live together in peace and harmony...”
Here is the 'hatefully repugnant' part that prompted the walk out:
"How can one imagine that the inhuman policies in Palestine may continue; to force the entire population of a country out of their homeland for more than 60 years by resorting to force and coercion; to attack them with all types of arms and even prohibited weapons; to deny them of their legitimate right of self-defense, while much to the chagrin of the international community calling the occupiers as the peacelovers, and portraying the victims as terrorists. How can the crimes of the occupiers against defenceless women and children and destruction of their homes, farms, hospitals and schools be supported unconditionally by certain governments, and at the same time, the oppressed men and women be subject to genocide and heaviest economic blockade being denied of their basic needs, food, water and medicine. They are not even allowed to rebuild their homes which were destroyed during the 22-day barbaric attacks by the Zionist regime while the winter is approaching. Whereas the aggressors and their supporters deceitfully continue their rhetoric in defense of human rights in order to put others under pressure. It is no longer acceptable that a small minority would dominate the politics, economy and culture of major parts of the world by its complicated networks, and establish a new form of slavery, and harm the reputation of other nations, even European nations and the U.S., to attain its racist ambitions."Raw anti-semitism eh? Talk about Orwellian doublespeak! Do these guys actually believe their semantic inanities I wonder?
2. The furore at the G20 opening over the Iranian "hidden" Uranium processing facility. Gordon Brown said: "The scale of the Iranian deception is breathtaking .... The international community has no choice today but to draw a line in the sand.” Similar rhetoric poured ad nauseam from Obama, Harper, Sarkozy and others. And not a word about Israel's quarter century long defiance of international law on nuclear matters. No mention of her nuclear weapons or the fact that, unlike Iran, Israel is a signatory to neither the Nuclear NPT nor the IAEA, with pretty much exactly the same to be said about those other Western Allies Pakistan and India.
The double standards and falsehoods are so damned IN-YOUR-FACE as to be near unbelievable!
And of course, unlike Israel, Iran has broken neither international law NOR IAEA rules. It is required to report the existence of any nuclear facility at least 180 days before nuclear material is introduced to it - which is exactly what it has done. The fact that the facility has been built in relative secrecy - though no doubt known to Western SIS's all along - is hardly surprising in view of Israeli threats to bomb Nantaz on an almost weekly basis for the past 3 years or more. Whereas Iran has never threatened to attack anyone, nor has it EVER done so, other than in direct response to military attack.
So, just who is the warmongering aggressor here? It's a serious question.
Of course the facts simply do not matter to the Zionist dominated western geo-political narrative, intent as it is on demonising any country that declines to see things its way.
The really scary thing about all this is that Western populations give every appearance of lapping it up. It is a desperately sad and deeply worrying state of affairs.
Update - an on-the-button comment from Xymphora:
To some extent Ahmadinejad set them up to look silly - they'd hoped for the Jewish holocaust 'denial' content that never materialized, and ended up walking out on a speech praising truth, goodness, and justice.Quite so.
