Top Mossad, Israeli Officials Echo Schlussel: Stop Siding With Mousavi (Who is Worse); Iranian Faux-Uprising is Stupid, Pointless
By Debbie Schlussel
I continue to marvel and laugh at the many group-think dummies on the right and left who continue to whine over the Iranian election and side with this faux-”uprising” for democracy in Iran.
It’s like siding with one better-spoken HAMAS candidate in a HAMAS election, in which both candidates were picked by HAMAS, and telling me that this is somehow a fight for Palestinian democracy. We’ve already seen Palestinian democracy. And Iranian democracy is no different. The young Iranians in this “Uprising” are haters of Israel and Jews and supporters of Iran’s nuke program. It’s simply a waste to side with these “young democrats.”
The many people all over the internet putting HAMAS green on their sites and Twitter and Facebook icons and telling us “We support Free Iran,” or, “We support Iranian Democracy” are idiots. You’re just clueless.
Top Israeli Mossad Officials Agree w/ Schlussel on Khomeini Disciple Mousavi
I said this last week, and I repeat it now: Mir-Hossein Mousavi is an extremist with nicer language. He’s no different from Ahmadinejad, and no better. As I noted last week, if anything, he’s worse because Moussavi is Ahmadinejad with lipstick on. He doesn’t say what he thinks, whereas Ahmadinejad does and makes it much harder to negotiate with. This is the same old dynamic in the Middle East over and over again.
But ignorant fools with zero critical thinking skills–who prefer slogans and gushing over “democracy” over reality–continue to go with the “Iranians uprising for freedom” false narrative. I guess if Mousavi’s deceased friend, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini got an extremist makeover, these many ignoramuses would be cheering for him and his revolutionaries (you know, the ones–including Mousavi–who took American Embassy officials hostage for 444 days). Or if the guys who head the terrorist group Mousavi founded, Hezbollah (which murdered over 300 U.S. Marines and Embassy officials) were well-spoken and got nice stories on ABC News, you’d be cheering for those “democrats,” too. Nauseating.
And top Israeli officials are now echoing what I said last week. Glad they agree and are far smarter than the “We support Iran” green echo chamber of dummies.
Schlussel, Last Week:
And while an Iran with Moussavi atop of it, would be no different than an Iran with Ahmadinejad at the top in terms of policy and radicalism, it might have been more dangerous. That’s because Moussavi thinks all of the same things as Ahamadinejad, but he’s not prone to stating these nutty views out in the open. We would be stuck negotiating with a kinder, gentler face of a man who is, privately, every bit as committed to the idea of Holocaust denial and Holocaust cartoons.
So, I don’t really care what happened over the weekend in the fake Iranian elections. To me, it’s the equivalent of two competing ants pissing. I couldn’t care less.
If anything, I’m glad the guy with the perpetual truth serum–who tells us exactly what they’re thinking about the Jews, Israel, nukes, and America–is the guy that’s still in there.
He’ll make it much tougher–and far less palatable to the American and Western public–for Barack Hussein Obama to sit at the table with him.
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has gained unlikely supporters amid spreading unrest in Iran: officials in Israel, a country he wants to eliminate.
Meir Dagan, chief of Israel’s Mossad intelligence agency, told a closed Knesset committee hearing that Mr. Ahmadinejad’s reputation as a Holocaust-denying rabble-rouser makes it easier for Israel to enlist international support against Iran’s nuclear program, a committee member said. A victory for Mr. Ahmadinejad’s moderate challenger, Mir Hossein Mousavi, in last week’s presidential elections would have presented Israel with “a graver problem,” Mr. Dagan said. . . .
“Both of them pose the same threat. But it’s better for Israel that you have a leader [in Iran] with a very dangerous ideology who speaks clearly so that nobody can ignore him,” said Knesset deputy speaker Danny Danon, a member of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party.
A more careful, soft-spoken Iranian president who promised better relations with the West “would have made it harder for us to recruit the world to our side,” Mr. Danon added. . . .
Israel would do well to pin no hopes on political change in Tehran, said former Mossad chief Efraim Halevy. While the recent turmoil might temporarily weaken Tehran’s support for Israel’s Arab foes, such as Hamas and Hezbollah, he said, they will have no effect on the strategic problem of Iran’s nuclear weapons.
Great minds think alike.
So, I’m awake. Top Israeli officials are awake. Time for the many mindless internet sheep on the right and the left all over the West to wake the heck up from your green phony baloney fantasies. You are no different than some guy who calls an 800 phone sex number and thinks the morbidly obese double-wide resident on the other end is a hot babe.
An extremist in green with nicer language is still an extremist. And he’s far harder to marginalize and ignore.
