Iran: Syria’s problems rooted in Zionist meddling


As Iran’s threats to strike at anyone that will contribute to end of Assad’s regime grow bolder Israel is stepping up fortification of northern border


Iran reiterated Saturday its threats that any attack on Syria would be perceived as one on the Islamic Republic and will meet “a harsh response.”

Tehran’s IRNA news agency quoted Defense Minister Brigadier-General Ahmad Vahidi as saying that Syrian Army, which is “the vanguard of campaign against Zionist regime should not be weakened.”

Iran has been Syrian President Bashar Assad’s strongest allay since Syria plunged into civil war.

Tehran has supplied Damascus with funds, weapons and training; and has repeatedly vowed to send its army to Assad’s aid should any attempt be made by the West to topple his regime.

The threats have become more strident following NATO’s decision to send Patriot missile batteries to Turkey, which fears the civil war tearing its neighbor apart may morph into a war between them.

The first of six Patriot missile batteries placed near the Turkish-Syrian border went operational on Saturday.

Vahidi told reporters that “The Syrian crisis should be resolved through peaceful means and national dialogue between the warring parties.”

He denounced any attempt to hasten said solution by the West, saying that “Any alien interference has so far brought only harmful consequences for the Syrian people.

“The Syrian problems have roots in covert and overt interference of the Zionists,” he said adding that “Iran has always adopted a rational stand toward Syria.”

Commenting on the Patriot deployment in Turkey, Vahidi said that “The move is not useful. We believe it will create misunderstanding among countries in the region.

“Enemies try to sow discord among Islamic states through masterminding various scenarios,” he said.

Israel wary of developments
Israel has been following the situation in Syria closely: Assad is believed to have the largest arsenal of chemical and biological weapons in the world. and the escalating civil war has sparked concerns that his WMDs may find their way into the hands of various terror groups, such as Hezbollah.

Israel’s defense establishment has been holding periodic security assessments on the matter, as such an occurrence could potentially change the balance of power between the IDF and the Lebanon-based Shiite terror group.

According to various reports, Israeli security officials have been meeting with their European counterparts in order to coordinate positions regarding the situation in Syria.

Various security officials, including IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen Benny Gantz, have alluded that Israel will not abide such a change and that if it becomes a reality, Israel will have no choice but to consider its counter-military options.

The London-based newspaper Al-Quds Al-Arabi reported recently that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a visit to Jordan, to discuss the recent developments in Syria, as part of these efforts. No Israeli source corroborated the report.

Meanwhile, the IDF has been fortifying the northern border in what has been described by security sources as “a race against the clock.”

The new border fence built along the border is equipped with advances surveillance systems able to provide the IDF with more intelligence about inland Syria

The IDF has expressed concerns that the growing chaos in Syria will serve as a breeding ground for new terror groups, as well as a safe haven for other nefarious elements that may choose to target Israel.

Assad–With No Foreign Meddling, Syrian War Over in 2 Weeks


Situation in Syria

The civil conflict in Syria can be over in two weeks if foreign fighters and weapons stop trickling in through the border with Turkey, the Al-Akhbar daily in Beirut quoted the Syrian president as saying on Monday.

According to the paper, Bashar al-Assad made the statement at a meeting with “a group of visitors from the Arab states” in Damascus on Monday. The president informed the visitors about the present situation in Syria during the meeting, which lasted for three hours. The daily gave no information about the visitors’ identities or nationalities.

The paper quoted al-Assad as saying that the Syrian army has recently dealt a number of serious blows to the armed groups financed from abroad and that “the most difficult stage of the crisis has been left behind.”
“Militant groups mostly operate in regions bordering Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon and some suburbs of Damascus. The Syrian capital itself, including the road to the international airport, is safe,” the paper said, quoting the Syrian leader.
Assad also thanked Russia for its support, saying that “by supporting Syria, Russia defends itself, not the [Syrian] regime.”

Meet Lubna Hanash, the 6th unarmed Palestinian shot dead by Nazi soldiers this month



Her name was Lubna Hanash. She was a 21-year-old political science major in her fourth year at  Al-Quds University.
And she was the sixth unarmed Palestinian killed by Israeli forces this month alone:

Witnesses told Ma’an that Israeli soldiers traveling in a civilian car opened fire at a group of people at the entrance to al-Arrub refugee camp south of Bethlehem.

Lubna Munir Hanash, 22, was shot in the head and died from her injuries, medics said.

Suad Yusuf Jaara was shot in the hand and transported to Ahli hospital in Hebron.

Witnesses told Ma’an that after the shooting Israeli soldiers prevented an ambulance from arriving at the scene for around 10 minutes.

Locals said there were no clashes in the area at the time.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said that “soldiers were attacked by Palestinians who hurled multiple firebombs at them while they were traveling near al-Arrub. Soldiers returned fire and the circumstances of the incident are currently being reviewed.”

Israeli soldiers searched the area and found several firebombs ready for use, she said, adding that no soldiers were injured in the incident.

It’s important to keep in mind that, as Ali Abunimah stresses, “such Israeli claims are routinely made to justify arbitrary killings of Palestinians and almost never result in credible investigations.”

On the same day that Lubna was killed, 15-year-old Salih al-Amarin died after nearly a week in the hospital battling a gunshot wound to the head, courtesy of Israeli soldiers in Bethlehem last Friday.

Prior to Salih’s death, Israeli forces had shot dead four unarmed Palestinians in under a week (January 11 to January 15). All were killed while in close proximity to Israeli-imposed separation barriers, though “none of them posed any risk to Israeli soldiers or civilians,” according to 972 Magazine.

Among them was 16-year-old Samir Awad. Samir was killed last Tuesday (January 15) after Israeli soldiers opened fire on him and his friends in Budrus, a West Bank village near Ramallah. His body was pierced by four bullets to the head, chest and leg. Israeli forces shot Awad from behind as he was running away. He and his school mates were hanging out near the separation wall after completing their midterms.

Budrus was featured in a 2009 documentary for being the first West Bank village to hold weekly demonstrations against the wall that was set to cut through Palestinian land. In fact, Samir had been jailed three times for his participation in the protests. The Guardian reports that “his family had lost more than five acres of land and 3,000 olive trees when the separation barrier was constructed on Budrus land.” Now they have lost Samir as well.

Samir was the fourth unarmed Palestinian to die by Israeli gunfire this month. Charlotte Silver provided details surrounding the first three state sanctioned murders at the Electronic Intifada:

On 11 January, 22-year-old Anwar Mamlouk was reportedly just outside the Jabaliya refugee camp in Gaza when Israeli soldiers gunned him down.

The next day, Odai al-Darawish, 21, was shot to death at three o’clock in the afternoon while crossing Israel’s wall in the West Bank to get to work in Israel. Initially, Israeli sources claimed the soldiers shot al-Darawish in his legs, in accordance with the “rules of engagement” (Israeli troops kill Palestinian trying to cross barrier,” The Chicago Tribune, 12 January 2013).

But medical sources quickly revealed that he was hit in the back, indicating that he was likely shot while trying to run to safety (Israeli forces shoot, kill worker south of Hebron,” Ma’an News Agency, 12 January 2013).

Al-Darawish was from the village of Dura, near Hebron, where in September last year a man attempted to immolate himself in a desperate protest of the dire economic conditions Palestinians face in the occupied West Bank (“Palestinian man attempts to set himself on fire in West Bank village of Dura,” Haaretz, 17 January 2013).

Mustafa Jarad was aged 21 and a farmer from Beit Lahiya in the northern Gaza Strip. He was shot in the forehead by an Israeli sniper on 14 January while working his land. But despite the Israeli gunman’s skillful marksmanship, Jarad was not killed immediately.

Doctors at al-Shifa hospital in Gaza City tried to remove the bullet from his severely injured brain, but Jarad died after surgery (“Mustafa Abu Jarad, murdered in Gaza, by the Israeli army,” International Solidarity Movement, 15 January 2013).

These deaths come on top of the unforgettable murder of 17-year-old Muhammad al-Salaymeh in December. The Hebron teen was shot dead on his 17th birthday by an Israeli soldier whose claims that Muhammad was armed and threatening to take a soldier hostage were exposed as lies by video footage of the killing.

When state-sanctioned killings become as routine as they have in Palestine, the victims morph into statistics that barely register in the media. But these are people just like us. They have family and friends who they loved. They had hopes and dreams. They laughed and cried. But unlike us, their lives were cut short by an occupying force that wants them gone.

Zio-Nazi election marred by 400 cases of voter fraud



Police reported that by late afternoon on Tuesday they had received approximately 400 reports about irregularities or possible voter fraud that they were investigating, but the day was generally free of major issues.

At 7 a.m. on Tuesday, 9,582 polling booths opened in 1,100 different cities across the country. There were also 194 voting locations at hospitals and 57 at prisons. Central Election Committee spokesman Giora Pordes said that 100% of the voting locations across the country opened without incident.

Police reported only a few criminal incidents in regards to voting throughout the day.

In the Arab town of Jaljulya, next to Hod Hasharon, a man who was overseeing the polling at his station was arrested for forgery after eight ballots were missing from his ballot box.

In Ramat Gan, someone set a bus stop that displayed a poster for Kadima on fire. Police searched the area for the perpetrator but did not make any arrests.

Police also detained approximately a dozen haredim in Jerusalem and Beit Shemesh for issues ranging from a man who walked in and suddenly overturned a ballot box, couples who attempted to vote twice, and a woman who brought her two children in to vote with her and stuffed their pockets full of voting slips.

Additionally, in the Gush Dan region, police received three separate complaints that a resident went to vote and discovered someone had already voted in their place. 

Likud Beytenu claimed that polling stations in Hadera, Rishon Lezion and Beit Ezra were forgeries and warned voters to ensure their voting slips are real. The Central Election Committee also received a complaint from Bayit Vegan, a haredi neighborhood in Jerusalem, that one of the female election workers was not dressed modestly enough and requested that she cover up.

Eretz Hadasha, whose election slip was the letter “zayin,” also complained that their slips were removed in some of the polling booths, and in some cases replaced with slips for the Atid Aher (Different Future) party, whose slip is “zayin-heh.”

Yesh Atid also turned to the Central Election Committee, claiming someone had maliciously moved their slips in an effort to intentionally confuse votes.

Yesh Atid slips are marked with the Hebrew letters “Peh-hey” which spells “po,” which is Hebrew for “here.” The party complained that voters were getting confused because someone switched the slips for Yesh Atid with the slips for a party called Haim Bekavod [Living with Dignity], which did not pass the two percent threshold. Haim Bekavod slips are marked with the same Hebrew letters in the opposite order – “hey-peh” and Yesh Atid claimed that someone moved those slips to the spot reserved for Yesh Atid in order to confuse voters.

In response, the Central Election Committee mandated that polling directors must check the booths every half hour to ensure that no one had switched the slips for Yesh Atid and Haim Bekavod. In each voting booth, there is a specially constructed drawer with spots for the slips of each of the 32 parties running.

In Yad Binyamin, far-right party Strong Israel claimed activists from Bayit Yehudi were removing its slips from voting booths.

“We hope this is a local initiative and not policy for Bayit Yehudi,” Strong Israel said in a statement.

The Central Election Committee began collecting votes when the polls closed, at 10 p.m. in most places and 8 p.m. in towns with less than 350 residents. All votes are counted at their respective voting locations, and then rechecked to ensure that the results add up to the same number of total votes, before being uploaded to a centralized computer system.

The Central Election Committee is expected to have near final results around 4 or 5 a.m.

Report: Egypt to extradite ‘Zionist spy’


Andre Pshenichnikov, arrested in Egypt last month for alleged espionage, will be extradited, a family friend reports


An Egyptian court decided to extradite Andre Pshenichnikov, a 24-year-old Israeli citizen who has been held in Sinai for the past month, a friend of Pshenichnikov’s family said Saturday. “Andre has been taken to Nuweiba, and now coordinating the extradition is in the hands of Israel,” she said.

According to the Foreign Ministry, no official announcement was made on the matter. The ministry further reported that the state has decided to indict Pshenichnikov for infiltration and not for espionage.

Related stories:

Pshenichnikov was arrested in Egypt on December 28, after crossing the border from Israel without a passport or any official document. His documents were reportedly confiscated before he crossed the border.

According to south Sinai sources, the Israeli national was suspected of taking pictures of security facilities in Taba, the Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper reported.

According to a friend of Pshenichnikov, “Everyone who knows Andre knows he’s as far from being a spy as east is from west – he’s anti-establishment. I believe that once they realize he’s an activist, they’ll drop that line of reasoning. He’s a sensitive guy; he’s not violent.

UK Liberal Democrats in a funk over free speech


Israel critics silenced

A Liberal Democrat MP in the UK, David Ward, is in hot water for his “use of language” in condemning Israelis for atrocities against the Palestinians while the horrors of their own suffering at the hands of the Nazis were still fresh in their memory.

He wrote on his website a few days before Holocaust Memorial Day:

Having visited Auschwitz twice – once with my family and once with local schools – I am saddened that the Jews, who suffered unbelievable levels of persecution during the holocaust, could within a few years of liberation from the death camps be inflicting atrocities on Palestinians in the new state of Israel and continue to do so on a daily basis in the West Bank and Gaza.

Karen Pollock, Chief Executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust, and Jon Benjamin, Chief Executive of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, lost no time in protesting.

According to a BBC report, Pollock said Ward “deliberately abused the memory of the holocaust” and his remarks were “sickening” and had no place in British politics.

Benjamin was outraged and shocked by Ward’s “offensive” comments. He complained: “For an MP to have made such comments on the eve of Holocaust Memorial Day is even more distasteful…”

But is there ever an “acceptable’ moment for mentioning Israel’s atrocious conduct? And what about that other holocaust, Israel’s Operation Cast Lead against Gaza’s civilians (Muslim and Christian) launched over Christmas-time and New Year 2008/09? It was not on the same scale admittedly but was evil and unforgivable nonetheless.

…is there ever an “acceptable’ moment for mentioning Israel’s atrocious conduct? And what about that other holocaust, Israel’s Operation Cast Lead against Gaza’s civilians (Muslim and Christian) launched over Christmas-time and New Year 2008/09?

And before anyone dismisses the death-roll as relatively insignificant, let’s remember that statistics from Israel’s B’Tselem show that between 2000 and the start of Israel’s “Cast Lead” assault the Israelis’ vast standing army, equipped with the most advanced American-funded weaponry, killed 4,790 Palestinian civilians in their homeland. Of these, 952 were children.

Yes, 952 young Palestinian lives horribly snuffed out and their parents desolated. In response the Palestinians, with their primitive weapons, killed 490 Israeli civilians, including 84 children. That’s a slaughter rate of 11 to 1 by the Israelis. Their score has been further improved by the Cast Lead and more recent Pillar of Cloud operations, and the many air strikes in-between.

Liberal Democrat leaders have “form” when it comes to stabbing good people in the back for criticizing the racist state. The well-known human rights campaigner, Baroness Jenny Tonge, has felt the knives of Charles Kennedy, Menzies Campbell and Nick Clegg for speaking her mind. Now she’s safely out of their clutches and sits as a cross-bencher in the House of Lords.

Again, on this occasion, instead of defending their MP from unjust accusations the Liberal Democrats announced that they “deeply regret and condemn the statement issued by David Ward and his use of language which is unacceptable”. He has been summoned to a meeting with the party whips next week. This means a dressing-down at least, possibly disciplinary action and even the end of his political career.

And for what? Speaking the truth?

No disrespect

Ward told the BBC: “I don’t feel bad about it in any way. They consider my comments regrettable; I consider their reprimand regrettable.” He said any further disciplinary action would be “a sad reflection on the values we all hold so dearly, particularly on free speech”.

Yes indeed. On the Liberal Democrat website under the tab “What We Stand For” there’s an item which says: “Protecting freedom of speech – We are protecting freedom of speech through our Defamation Bill and by ending the restrictive situation where it is an offence to ‘insult’ someone.”

Furthermore the party’s constitution says:

We will at all times defend the right to speak, write, worship, associate and vote freely… Our responsibility for justice and liberty cannot be confined by national boundaries; we are committed to fight poverty, oppression, hunger, ignorance, disease and aggression wherever they occur and to promote the free movement of ideas, people, goods and services. Setting aside national sovereignty when necessary, we will work with other countries towards an equitable and peaceful international order and a durable system of common security.

It also declares that Liberal Democrats

are supporters of international law … welcome the extension of international law to hold individuals to account for crimes against humanity. If governments engage in large-scale violations of human rights, or are unable or unwilling to protect their populations from catastrophes, then this responsibility must be fulfilled by the international community…


The Liberal Democrats’ track record is one of gutlessness and hypocrisy. They have the oldest Friends of Israel setup in the British Parliament and now are in coalition with the Conservative Party, 80 per cent of whose MPs are said be signed-up Friends of Israel.

Fancy words. But put them to the test and they fly out the window. The Liberal Democrats’ track record is one of gutlessness and hypocrisy. They have the oldest Friends of Israel setup in the British Parliament and now are in coalition with the Conservative Party, 80 per cent of whose MPs are said be signed-up Friends of Israel. What an appalling bunch of people, this admiration society who promote the ambitions of some of the worst criminals on the planet.

No one in this affair has shown disrespect for the holocaust and its memorial, and certainly not David Ward who has said and done all the right things, even to the extent of signing a Book of Commitment. OK, you might argue with his timing. But the only people to have “abused the memory of the holocaust”, as Karen Pollock put it, are the Israeli regime itself (which dispossessed and drove into exile some 700,000 Palestinians in 1947/48 and has had its boot on the necks of those remaining for the 64 years ever since) and its supporters – including some who lurk in the Liberal Democratic Party. The abiding message of the holocaust, that such cruelty must never be allowed to happen again, seems to have eluded them.

Also eluded them is the fact, apparently, that Israel outlaws commemoration of the Palestinians’ corresponding Nakba, the catastrophe of the 1948 mass expulsion, ethnic cleansing and massacres.

Hebrew Playboy to improve IsraHell’s world image!


Daniel Pomerantz, a US-Israel dual citizen has announced to launch the Hebrew version of famous men’s sexy magazine Palayboy. Like a typical Israel-Firster, Pomerantz too believe that his Israeli porn-filled magazine will help to improve Israel’s international image which has nose-dipped since Israel’s 2006 defeat at the hands of Hizballah guerilla fighters. “For me this is an opportunity to show the world the nice side of Israel, the culture here,” he says.

Israeli daily Ha’aretz reported on January 14, 2013 that Pomerantz and some other Jewish businessmen have bought the rights from Hefner state to distribute an Israeli version of the magazine which is expected to hit the stalls within next few months.

We went to hefner’s state with Israeli team to learn from the Playboy experts,” Pomerantz told TheMarker. “Hefner was very excited that there was a word (shfanfana) for bunny in Hebrew – it proved that there is cultural link between the Playboy brand and Israeli culture“.

Pomerantz, living in Israel, should know the “Playboy-Israel links” better than others. Israel is home to world’s largest porn industry, prostitution and sex-slavery – based on country’s tiny population. Tel Aviv has 280 Jewish brothels and is known as the Pink City.

Hugh Marston Hefner (born 1926) launched the Platboy magazine in 1953. The religious background of Hefner is disputed (Jewish or WASP). However, Steven Watts’s biograpy, ‘Mr. Playboy’, says- “It was a team of Jewish editors (Nat Lehrman, Alexander Portnoy and Alvy Singer), who made the magazine one of the liveliest, sexiest and most progressive reads around“.

The Playboy magazine which is famous for its photo spreads of nude women – has been losing its circulation lately. It was never published in Hebrew before though its competitor, Penthouse, appeared in Israel during 1989-1993.

Israel’s leading men’s magazine is Blazer, which is usually laced with nude pictures of young Jewish women. “The magazine will be very sexy, but it’s not about sex. It will be inspiring and broadcast quality and beauty,” said Pomerantz.

Neta Jakobovitz-Keidar, the editor-in-chief for Hebrew Playboy says that all the writers and nude models will be Israeli Jews.

The de-legitimization of the Zionist entity has picked-up speed during the last decade – which has scared the hell out of the Zionist crowd around the world. The West had created the entity in the middle of Arab world in 1948 to get rid most of its unwated Jewish population. The Zionist entity has become a threat to world-peace thanks to the blind financial, military and moral support it receieves from the powerful diaspora Jewish communities in the West. However, the wind has started blowing in the opposite direction lately. For the younger Jewish generation in diaspora the non-stop Zionists’ atrocities in the region and Jewish occupation has become unbearable and they have begun to distant themselves from the Zionist entity.

Daniel Gordis in Jewish magazine Tablet (August 20, 2012) admitted this new trend by saying: “Young Jews today, discouraged by Israeli policies they cannot abide, either explicitly or tacitly join those who condem the Jewish (?) state. But they do not recognize that the de-legitimization of Israel will effect them, too, that they, too, have a personal stake in Israel, no matter how discomfited they may be by some of its policies. What happens to Israel will not effect only Jews in Beersheva or Tel Aviv but Jews in New York, Boston, London and Buenos Aires“. However, Gordis was at loss to explain why the Jews in diaspora would be effected by the fall of the Zionist entity – when, historically, the Jewish communities in the mentioned cities had wielded great power even before the creation of state of Israel and most of them refused to make aliya to the Holy Land. There are more Jews still living in diaspora than Jews in Israel.

Russian-born American Jewish lecturer, writer and marketing expert, Gary Wexler, wrote at the Jewish Journal on January 11, 2007: “It has become clear that the world doesn’t care about Israel’s wines, its Bauhaus architecture, its fashion, its alluring women, its sexy gay men, its beaches, its ballet or its hummus. The world, its media and its university campuses are riveted upon Israel’s relationship with the Palestinians as well as the state of its democracy“.

The Zionist regime and its lobby groups in the West spend millions of dollar each year to sell Zionists’ narratives on Islam, Muslims, Arabs and Holocaust using porn, gay parades, think tanks, faked videos and media stories and fully-paid trips to Israel for students, Evangelist leaders and politicians.

In 2007, Israeli embassy used former Miss Israel Gal Gadot to pose half-naked in men magazine Maxim as part of Tel Aviv’s quasi-porn propaganda to improve Israel’s image among the American youth.

A century of savage aggression;
Ethnically cleansing us,
Slow-genociding us,
Slaughtering our babies,
Breaking the bones of our children,
Shooting at point blank our boys and girls,
Imprisoning and torturing our bravest,
Assassinating our finest,
Denying our refugees the right to go back home,
Eradicating our exquisite architectural heritage,
Dissecting and disconnecting our towns,
Uprooting our fruit and olive trees,
Stealing our water and resources,
Destroying our Biblical villages,
Demolishing our homes,
Mutilating our landscape,
Deforming our valleys,
Maiming our hills,
Polluting our environment,
Desecrating our places of worship,
Violating the sanctuary of our ancestors,
Defecating  our cultural buildings,

Disfiguring our treasured and much loved land into a nuclear dump,

Transforming our peaceful, hospitable, inclusive, agricultural, life-fostering spiritual Holy Land,
Into a satanic, exclusivist, tribalistic, unholy, militaristic fortress
For the production of weapons of mass destruction.

After all that;

They get surprised that


How can one “love” evil?

Are they really humans,
Or was I right in my childhood perception ? *

Girl who spat on Tibi sprayed anti-Christian slogans


Jerusalem Police arrest two girls suspected of spray-painting ‘Jesus is a son of a bitch’on wall surrounding Monastery of the Cross in capital; one of the suspects spat on Arab MK following heated debate at Bar-Ilan University in December


Jerusalem District police arrested on Sunday two young girls on suspicion that they spray-pained anti-Christian slogans on a monastery and damaging vehicles in the capital last month.

The 17-year-old suspected spat on Arab Knesset Member Ahmad Tibi after a heated political debate (United Arab List-Ta’al) at Bar-Ilan University in late December, during the election race. Her remand was extended until Thursday.

The older suspect’s remand was also extended until Thursday. Police presented to the court photos of items that were confiscated during a search of her home – allegedly linking her to the act.

The slogans, including “Jesus is a son of a bitch,” were discovered in mid-December on the wall surrounding the Monastery of the Cross in Jerusalem’s Emek HaMatsleva. The tries of three vehicles that were parked in the area were punctured, and the words “Happy Hanukkah, victory for the Maccabees” were spray-pained on one of them.

Following the incident at Bar-Ilan, the girl said aid she would “not do anything differently” and outlined the extreme rightist doctrine that guided her.

“Maybe it’s not politically correct and may seem a bit disgusting, but some people deserve it,” she told Ynet after a video of the incident was released. “(Tibi) should say thank you; he deserves much worse; he deserves a death sentence. There have to be people who give the enemies of Israel what they deserve.”

Who Spread Reports of an ‘Explosion’ at Iran’s Fordow Nuclear Plant and Why?


According to the report, the explosion in Fordow seriously damaged many of the centrifuges in the plant and trapped underground 240 employees who have yet to be rescued. But if this is true, why have the major news networks dismissed it?


The Internet has been abuzz over the last couple of days with an uncorroborated report regarding a huge explosion in the underground uranium enrichment plant at Fordow in Iran. According to the report, the explosion seriously damaged many of the centrifuges in the plant and trapped underground 240 employees who have yet to be rescued.

If this is true, it will be the most serious sabotage caused yet to the Iranian nuclear program. If this is true.

The main problem with the report is that no supporting evidence has appeared so far from any reliable sources to corroborate it, nor have verifiable statements been released from an official source in Iran or any other country.

Most main Western news organizations with contacts and sources in the intelligence community have steered well away from the story. (In Israel, only the tabloid Yedioth Ahronoth, which splashed the story on the front page of its Sunday edition, took notice of the story.)

By Monday morning, a few respectable media organizations seemed to be taking the news more seriously than when it first emerged, but carried little information or details that could verify the report.

The Times of London reported that an “Israeli official” had acknowledged that there had been an incident at Fordow and that the Israeli government was still investigating the situation. The German daily Die Welt confirmed the report from a “source in the Iranian intelligence service.” The U.S. media, meanwhile, quoted an administration source who doubted the credibility of the report, and the deputy chairman of Iran’s nuclear energy commission on Sunday night also denied the report.

Perhaps it’s the identity of the report’s author which leads to the disbelief: Reza Kahlili, an Iranian exile with an interesting past who is well known to many reporters covering intelligence and Iranian affairs. He published the report on the explosion, which apparently took place on Monday, the eve of the Israeli elections, on World News Daily, a veteran website with close contacts to the far-right in the United States. Kahlili himself is a frequent speaker at events organized by right-wing organizations and those that support the right in Israel. It’s not hard to realize why. In an interview he gave Haaretz two years ago, upon the publication of his book “A Time To Betray”, Kalili set out a worldview on Iran that was surprisingly similar to that of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He also compared the regime in Tehran to that of the Nazis, and called upon Israel to bomb Iran’s nuclear installations.

Kahlili’s book tells his story as a young Iranian man who studied in the United States and returned to his homeland following the Islamic revolution with the belief that Ayatollah Khomeini was a force for positive change. He joined the Revolutionary Guard, but after a few years lost faith. He volunteered to spy for the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency and for a few years collected information in Iran. In the late 1980s he was taken out of Iran along with his wife and has since lived in the United States.

In recent years, he has made a living writing and giving talks on Iran, claiming to still have an impressive network of sources in various government agencies. To this day, in his public appearances he will not reveal his face, for fear of retribution, and appears with a baseball cap, dark glasses and a surgical mask. (His employment by the CIA has been confirmed by Agency sources and an approving review of his book even appeared on the CIA website.)

Not for nothing have the major news organizations ignored Kahlili’s Fordow report. Beyond his questionable credibility, there is no supporting evidence. If a large explosion did occur at Fordow a week ago, why have no satellite photos appeared of dozens of vehicles on the site involved in rescue operations? And if there are 240 workers trapped underground, how come no worried relatives have expressed concern on one of the social networks? Iran may have a repressive regime, but tens of millions of citizens are connected to the Internet and are experts at evading the regime’s attempts to monitor and filter their communications. Something would have come out by now.

Even assuming one of the intelligence agencies engaged in the silent war against Iran – the CIA, Mossad, MI6 or any other – was capable of placing a large explosive device in the secure underground facility still under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency, without leaving an incriminating trail, such an operation would have been the closest thing to declaring war. Would the governments of the west have taken such a risk while it they still believe that Iran can be convinced to stop enriching uranium through a combination of sanctions and diplomatic engagement.

In a phone-interview with Haaretz (Kahlili used a voice-distorting device), he insisted that his information was accurate and based on his “several sources in the Revolutionary Guards, government offices and [Supreme Leader] Khamenei’s office.” He admitted to frustration over the mainstream media’s lack of reaction to this report and said: “I have revealed many facts about the regime and its secret work and months later major news networks picked it up.”

Among his recent revelations that have not attracted attention are two new enrichment installations that he claims are being operated with Russian cooperation and use laser technology. He volunteered another scoop: following the Fordow explosion, he claims, meetings were held between Revolutionary Guard commanders and Hassan Nasrallah, in which Hezbollah was ordered to evacuate a number of villages in south Lebanon, to prepare for an attack on Israel.

He is totally convinced that in the coming weeks, additional information will emerge and the regime’s retaliation will confirm his version.
