Iran's 'Big Lie' on Israel

Wednesday, 19 November 2014 08:27 AM Current | Bio | Archive

Iran’s Supreme Leader Hosseini Khamenei’s propaganda-machine is on warp-speed.

Nonstop, Khamenei’s twitter feed is posting claims like “#Iran considers the use of WMDs as an unforgivable sin. Nuclear energy for all and nukes for none.”

Khamenei has never published his actual "no-nuke’ fatwa, or religious edict. Nevertheless, President Obama has touted Khamenei’s “no-nukes” claims as real. But then, Obama will swallow anything Iran has to say, let alone whatever the “Supreme Leader” himself states.

Almost two-years ago, I wrote about a hypothetical Iranian EMP nuclear attack on Saudi Arabia that would be low-casualty and “Shariah compliant.” Others have written how Khamenei’s fatwa doesn’t exist. Now, I’ve a simpler approach: Khamenei is flat–out lying the “big lie” ala Adolf Hitler.

Hitler called his propaganda theory “the big lie.” Hitler explained: Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.

Unfortunately, Hitler successfully deployed one of his big lies during England’s “Munich 1938 appeasement” of Hitler, and his subsequent betrayal of Czechoslovakia.

On Sept. 26, 1938, several days before Neville Chamberlain, Britain’s prime minister, forced Czechoslovakia to cede the protective mountains of the Sudetenland, Hitler earnestly told a huge crowd in Berlin: “It [the Sudetenland] is the final territorial demand which I shall make of Europe, but it is the demand which shall not give up and which with God’s help I shall ensure is fulfilled … I am grateful to Mr. Chamberlain for all his efforts. I have assured him [Chamberlain] that the German people desire nothing but peace. I have also assured him, and I repeat this assurance here, that, once this problem is solved, there exist no further territorial problems for Germany in Europe.”

Chamberlain bought it. Hitler came close to winning the war, and 80 million people were slaughtered throughout Europe. Chamberlain had a “wise” lesson-learned for his-own catastrophic idiocy, “Everything would have been all right if Hitler hadn't lied to me.”

What if Hitler in 1938, instead of promising “no more territorial demands,” had promised Khamenei’s promise of “No nuclear weapons for Nazi Germany.” Chamberlain, the war-weary England, and far-away Roosevelt in America, would have likely swallowed that big lie also. But in 1938, had the free-world believed a Hitler “big lie” on nuclear weapons, there wouldn’t be a free world today. And in 2014, if the free-world believes Khamenei’s big no-nuke lie, there will be no free-world soon.

For, even without a nuclear bomb, Iran has propped up his Alawite Shi’ite puppet Bashar al-Assad of Syria with Iranian Shi’ite militias who have mass-murdered close to 300,000 Syrian Sunni Muslims.

Now, if Iran is more than willing to murder 300,000 Sunni Muslims to entrench Syria’s minority-dictator Assad, what would Tehran be capable of doing to the Sunni states including Saudi Arabia, if Iran possessed nuclear weapons? If it is “legally permissible,” or halal, under Khamenei’s religious view, to sanction Iran’s conventional mass murder of 300,000 Sunni Muslims in Syria, why wouldn’t it be “permissible,” or haraam, for Iran to unconventionally massmurder another 300,000 Sunnis Muslims anywhere else?

And, how about Khamenei’s incessant calls to annihilate Israel? Even without a nuclear bomb, Khamenei recently tweeted regarding Israel, "This barbaric, wolflike & infanticidal regime of #Israel which spares no crime has no cure but to be annihilated. #HandsOffAlAqsa."

Khamenei added, the "only means to confront a barbaric regime like Israel is arming the West Bank." For Iran and for the time being, lacking a nuclear bomb, the “only means” to annihilate Israel is to “arm the West Bank just like Gaza.” But, if Iran had nukes, Iran would have “other means” to confront what Iran sees as “a barbaric regime like Israel.”

Now to Obama’s mind, it may make for great foreign policy to ignore Iran murder hundreds of thousands, or even millions of Sunnis and/or Israelis on its way to a Shi’ite Imanate. But the real problem for the continental USA is that Iran likely has whatever nuclear technology North Korea already possesses.

In this regard, Gen. Curtis M. Scaparrotti, the senior U.S. commander on the Korean Peninsula, recently stated that, “They’ve [North Korea] had the right connections [with Iran and Pakistan] and so I believe have the capability to have miniaturized a [nuclear] device at this point, and they have the technology to potentially actually deliver what they say they have [and] I think they have a launcher that will carry it at this point.”

Therefore, with Obama’s nuclear appeasement negotiating “skills,” after Iran nukes millions, we may hear, “Everything would have been all right if Khamenei hadn't lied to me.” But knowing Obama, he will more likely, say, “It’s Bush’s fault.”
