The Full Court Press on Iran: John Hagee, Franklin Graham, Press TV Bans, and the Hispan TV Affair

 

Mark Dankof in Washington, D. C. in November of 2011

   

“Time, numbers, and space are with the colored world, with the Muslim nationalists and against Israel.  What the colored world lacked has been unity and dynamism.  Well, Israel is contributing to the unification and activation of the colored world for war against the outsiders.  The white powers and the Israelis can never achieve ultimate and decisive force superiority over the colored world and the vast areas it populates.

     “However, the western world–if guided by operational rationalism and calculation instead of mystical legalism, moralism, and traditionalism–could easily formulate propositions with the colored world mutually advantageous to all concerned.  Only a return to [American] neutrality could ensure against our government fighting a third world war against overwhelming numerical odds.  The more natives Americans kill, the better for the interests of native nationalisms.  The pressure will be only on the American taxpayers and conscripts for the wars of perpetual intervention.”

Lawrence Dennis, American Nationalist, the 1950s

     The Full Court Press on Iran continues unabated.  The ongoing escalation in economic sanctions targeting Iranian oil, banking, and trade are accompanied by Zionist inspired terror within that country, using the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK/PMOI/MKO), PJAK, and Jundallah in the carrying out of premeditated murder in Tehran, Iranian Azerbaijan, Diyala, Khuzestan, and Balochistan provinces.  The Washington Post concedes that there has been a five-fold “unexplained” increase in explosions in the last two years at Iranian nuclear sites and military installations, oil and gas facilities and pipelines, and electrical plants.  This is supplemented by American, British, and Israeli financial support for various activities of political insurrection against the IRI regime, American violations of Iranian airspace with drones, and the deployment of three United States aircraft carrier task forces and two Marine amphibious assault units near the Persian Gulf and the Strait of Hormuz.  The winds of a totally immoral and unjustifiable war of aggression continue to blow with greater force and speed.

     I have a reiteration of a prediction with my own subsequent addendum.  Lawrence Dennis, the great American Nationalist theoretician, is certainly correct in his assessment of the present crisis uttered over half a century ago.

     Yes, this war will happen as Dennis predicted.  But it is also a war that will irrevocably destroy what little remains of the United States and the Western World from the immediate post-World War II configuration of powers and cultures.  The good news is that Israel will also collapse over time, along with Zionist fiat banking; fractional reserve banking; usury; Jewish cultural subversion of Christian and Islamic influence; and every other corresponding cancer of the New World Order.  Out of short-term tragedy will emerge an aftermath in this present world with renewed reason for hope and life once more, or the Eschaton itself.

     Yet the chief beneficiaries and apologists for The Beast will not go down without a fight.  There are three (3) prime examples of this currently manifesting their poison-for-pay agenda in the interest of igniting a Zionist inspired Holocaust in Iran.

     The first example comes from the Rotund Reaper of Deception himself, John Hagee, whose Christians United for Israel sponsored a March 28 airing of the agitation-propaganda film Iranium at the University of Texas in San Antonio about the alleged threat to the West posed by a weaponized Iranian nuclear program.  The claims of the film are a repudiation of the National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) on the subject produced by America’s 16 intelligence agencies, and what has emerged from the International Atomic Energy Agency as well.  One of the film’s chief spokespersons is Clair Lopez of the Central Intelligence Agency and the Iran Policy Committee (IPC), the chief PR arm of the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK) in Washington.  Ms. Lopez and IPC chief Dr. Raymond Tanter of Georgetown University are key links in a spider web of American intelligence front organizations with symbiotic links to the Israeli Mossad and a Jewish-driven Neo-Conservative movement which has hijacked the American Right and much of the national security apparatus of the United States as well.

     The second example has emerged this week, with the April 2012 Special Issue of Decision magazine, the flagship publication of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.  It is entitled “Radical Islam’s Global War on Christians.”

     A number of observations about this issue and the organization that produced it are in order.  It is a matter of well buried but public record, that Billy Graham’s success for 60 years as America’s leading Christian Right evangelist is inextricably linked to his effective recruitment and deployment over the decades by the William Randolph Hearst media conglomerate, which in turn was effectively serving the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the emerging American corporate power structure during the Cold War and the anti-Communist crusade which accompanied it.  Billy Graham was the pivotal figure in the enlistment of millions of American Protestant Evangelicals in this endeavor for forces not understood by the faithful.  The outcome of this crusade was the end of the Soviet Union in 1989 as it had been previously constituted.  That achievement was laudable.

     But the crowd enamored of Graham was never informed that Soviet Bolshevism and its exportation abroad were largely empowered by Jewish recruits and international financiers like Jacob Schiff and the House of Rothschild.  Concurrently, these American Protestant Evangelicals were never filled in by the Graham Empire or its Decision magazine of the disproportionate Jewish role in pursing a targeted strategy of destroying Christian culture in the United States via the abortion industry; the homosexual rights movement; the radical feminist movement; and the importation of Freud’s Vienna and the Frankfurt School for their subsequent infiltration of the highest echelons of American government, media, legal, and educational matrixes.  Why?  Clearly part of the answer is the influence of the Christian Zionist heresy fed by John Nelson Darby and the Scofield Reference Bible, and politically driven by Chicago businessman and Dispensationalist William E. Blackstone in the 19th and 20th centuries.  Additionally, Billy and Franklin Graham presumably understood the necessity of cooperation with the Synagogue of Satan (Revelation 2:9) as a prerequisite to their own survival and promotion in an America increasingly co-opted as the driving surrogate force for Globalism, International Central Banking, and the New World Order.  The success of this endgame necessitates carefully recruited front men in both secular and ecclesiastical realms.  Understood in this context, Billy and Franklin Graham and John Hagee are the religious flipside of Fox News and CNN, singing the same tune in total concert with the latter regarding the necessity for war.   Onward Christian Soldiers?

     Analyzing the contents of Decision’sRadical Islam’s Global War on Christians” reveals other unpleasant truths.  Decision cites Frank Gaffney’s Center for Security Policy and ex-CIA chief R. James Woolsey as sources for its presentation.  Gaffney’s long standing membership as a friendly source for the Israeli Lobby and as part of the larger Neo-Conservative Constellation for World Zionism is not mentioned.  Neither is the sordid role of R. James Woolsey in receiving thousands of dollars for his public role in attempting to have the Communist Mujahedeen-e-Khalq cult delisted from the list of Terrorist Organizations compiled by the State Department.  Franklin Graham apparently has no problem with complete Zionist cooperation with such an organization, infamous for its warped ideological synthesis of Communism and Islam, its murder of Americans in Pahlavi Iran several generations ago, its murder of Kurds at the behest of Saddam Hussein in the 1980s, its long history of terror and murder of Iranians since the Revolution of 1979, and the cultic leadership of Miryam and Massoud Rajavi in the brainwashing and terror applied to the organization’s own members when necessary.  Graham, like Rick Santorum and Company, apparently also approves of the premeditated murders of Iranian scientists in recent years, along with all of the other aforementioned acts of war directed at that country.  All in the name of  a loving Jesus, of course.

The Mossad and the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK/PMOI): Pals of Franklin Graham's friends, including R. James Woolsey of the CIA.

     Former CIA Station Chief Philip Giraldi of the Council for the National Interest, provides the context for understanding the nonsense promoted by Franklin Graham and Decision magazine in the former’s essay entitled, “The Islamophobia Excuse.”  Christians might also enjoy comparing the Koran’s evaluation of Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary with that proferred by the Jewish Talmud, or reading Tarif Khalidi’s The Muslim Jesus:  Sayings and Stories in Islamic Literature.  Or asking why Christian Right sock puppets like Franklin Graham and John Hagee are siding with the enemies of Christianity in the American Culture Wars, even as the Islamic world stands against these trends in the United Nations and their promotion and financing internationally by Hillary Clinton’s State Department in the world body.

     And finally, someone needs to ask Franklin Graham what the Bible has to say about the reasons for the national Jewish disenfranchisement at the hands of Babylon (B. C. 586) and Rome (A. D. 70).  Why did the Jewish-inspired mob demand Pilate’s release of Barabbas, the Menachem Begin of his time (Matthew 27)?  Was it because that mob, working in conjunction with the Jewish Chief Priests, Scribes, and Pharisees of Jerusalem, wanted the death of a Messiah who had repudiated both Jewish racial supremacism and a kingdom based in this world and not the next?  If so, why affirm that ideology now in the 21st century as the chief foundational reason for the establishment of the modern Zionist State of Israel?  And risk the survivability of the United States in the process?  Franklin Graham and Decision magazine are stone cold silent.  This is one stone that will not be rolled away from the Tomb serving as the Repository of the Secrets of Subterranean Masters.

     And given the ersatz American patriotism of John Hagee, Franklin Graham, and Company, why is their absolute silence on the nature of Jesus Christ’s teachings about the Kingdom of God in the New Testament accompanied by their identical AWOL status on Deir Yassin, the Meyer Lansky crime syndicate’s relationship to the Zionist State, the Lavon Affair, the Kennedy Assassination, the USS Liberty attack, and the laundry list of Israeli espionage operations against the United States since 1948 including the Pollard spy case and the PROMIS affair?  Will following the money trail provide the answers?

     The third example of the Full Court Press on Iran does not involve promoting and financing Israel’s friends.  It has every thing to do with its logical counterpart: silencing Iran’s opportunity to make its own direct public case to the world, and to an American public presently at the mercy of Zionist Corporate Media.

     Only a fool could fail to see the implications of the Ofcom case made against Press TV in the UK, or the more recent ban on that network in Germany courtesy of the Munich regulatory agency that ordered Press TV removed from SES Astra.  These bans will likely be accompanied in the future by regulatory actions against Hispan TV, the media outreach being developed by the national Iranian news agency for the airing of issues in South America.  Adam Housley of InterAmerican Security Watch sounds the Neo-Conservative alarm at such a prospect in “Iran Moving in on Latin American Television Market“.  The United States Congress joins in Mr. Housley’s chorus by adding the “Countering Iran in the Western Hemisphere Act” which will eventually pass both the House and Senate in some final version.  These alarms have nothing to do with the canards of “Anti-Semitism” and “Terrorism.”  They have everything to do with both North and South Americans having the chance to see patriotic and academically respectable Americans like Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, Dr. Philip Giraldi, Dr. Paul Sheldon Foote, Dr. E. Michael Jones, and Mark Glenn, making the case not simply for avoiding war with Iran, but providing an honest analysis of who and what has shoplifted the American political process, the economy, the media, and the culture.

     The First Amendment and Jeffersonianism will triumph.  The descendants of Lawrence Dennis, like Michael Collins Piper, Mark Glenn, Mark Dankof, and E. Michael Jones will emerge victorious.

     Benjamin Netanyahu, the domestic American Jewish Lobby, and their Pit Puppies in the American Establishment understand this.  If Press TV, Hispan TV, Russia Today, and other international media outlets capable of reaching American and European audiences from abroad ever succeed in facilitating the connection of the real dots in this Internet age for masses of people in the Western world, these jokers are finished.  The game will be over.

     But the Beast will not go out without a fight.  It will begin with a False Flag Incident which mirrors Fort Sumter or the Kuwaiti Baby Incubator Fraud of 1990.  And as Billy Graham’s handler, William Randolph Hearst once put it, “You give me the pictures, I’ll give you the war.”

     Only this time, the Good Guys will win the war the Bad Guys begin.  And Franklin Graham will join John Hagee, Kenneth R. Timmerman, and Howard Phillips in going on oxygen.

Mark Dankof Interview with the Habilian Association: On Israel, the MEK, and Iran

Mark Dankof: "The Mujahedeen-e-Khalq: The Intersection of the CIA-Mossad-Saudi Nexus Against Iran"

The Habilian Association of Iran talks to American conservative and Taft-Buchanan Republican Mark Dankof about Israel, American foreign policy in the Middle East and Asia, and the role of the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK/MKO/PMOI) in both.  A past Republican Party District Chairman in Seattle, Washington; U. S. Senate candidate in Delaware in 2000 for Howard Phillips’s Constitution Party; and radio voice in recent years with Lebanese-American Mark Glenn of The Ugly Truth, Dankof also serves as a Lutheran clergyman in San Antonio, Texas and theological graduate student.  His last academic degree’s thesis will deal with the subject of Christian Zionism and the latter’s role in shaping a pro-Israel American foreign policy.  Mr. Dankof’s recent appearances on Iran’s Press TV are augmented by his opinion-editorials, which include, “The Red Ladies:  Sara Flounders and Debra Sweet,” “Mark Dankof’s Final Word on Michael Collins Piper’s ‘Final Judgment’ on Israel and the Assassination of JFK,” “The Bank Markazi Blacklist Proposal:  Straight out of the McCollum Memorandum and the FDR Playbook for War,” “2012 Options for The Real Right:  But is it Too Late? ,” and “Rapture Rick Perry of Texas:  Israel’s Stealth GOP Presidential Candidate?

Habilian AssociationTell us about Intelligence collaboration between the MKO and the Israeli Mossad over Iran’s nuclear case.

Mark Dankof:  Information from non-classified sources is circumstantial but overwhelmingly strong.  Dr. Paul Sheldon Foote of Cal-State Fullerton, probably the leading authoritative source in the United States on the MEK, and its presently functional relationship with the Israeli Mossad and elements in the American intelligence community, has publicly stated via his own sources that the MEK is the leading tool of Israeli intelligence and American Neo-Conservatives in the latter’s espionage agencies in launching acts of destablization and violence directed at Iran’s current government and conducted illegally within Iranian borders.  Foote identifies the PJAK, the offshoot of the Kurdish separatist PKK, and the Jundallah, as the other elements in this dangerous game.  The MEK’s fingerprints in Tehran are joined by what seems to be a cooperative relationship with PJAK directed against the Iranian government in efforts launched from northeast Iraq and the Qandil Mountains and directed against Iranian Azerbaijan.  And suspicious terror activities in Khuzestan and Diyala Provinces in recent years seem to be augmented by bomb blasts and terror killings in Balochistan Province in Iran where it appears that the MEK’s partner-in-crime is the Jundallah based in Pakistan.  But again, the Hidden Hand is comprised of the obvious, bigger ultimate players and assets.  The increase in PKK attacks on Turkey since May 2009 coincides exactly with the corresponding time frames of the Turkish government’s public beefs with Israel over the Mavi Marmara shoot-up and other formal Erdogan government protests against the actions of the Netanyahu regime in Gaza and elsewhere.  What does this tell any of us?  But for the Israeli Mossad, the American CIA, the British MI6, and their respective Commanders-in-Chief, the operative concept is “plausible deniability.”

     Mainstream American governmental and media sources confirm publicly that the MEK is the source of the information being used by pro-Israeli American Neo-Conservatives to argue for a military attack on Iran to preemptively strike the latter’s alleged weaponized nuclear program and its suppposed desire to use it against Israel.  It is noteworthy that this “information” contradicts the National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) report prepared by the 16 intelligence agencies of the American national security establishment regarding Iran and its nuclear program.  Worse yet, there have been repeated allegations in the international press corroborated by Israel’s critics in the American intelligence community that these MEK-generated reports and the lies in them being repeated incessantly by every War Party news agency from CNN to Fox News, World Net Daily, The Weekly Standard, NewsMax, and National Review, are in fact nothing more than the Israeli government’s brokering of deliberate agitation-propaganda to the voluminously gullible and ignorant consumers of these well-packaged charades which employ the MEK as the broker.  I believe Philip Giraldi of the Council for the National Interest and Buchanan’s The American Conservative, and former CIA station chief in a couple of different places over the years, is among those making this charge.  In essence, it would appear to be the case beyond a shadow of a doubt that the MEK is playing the same Judas Goat role for the American and Israeli intelligence establishments that the Iraqi National Congress (INC) and Ahmad Chalabi did with their brokered nonsense before the last American invasion of Iraq that Saddam Hussein possessed “Weapons of Mass Destruction.”  This is a critical angle to this present story involving the MEK.  Why should the people of the United States and honest policy makers in Washington (all 10 of them?) now believe sources on Iran in 2011 with every motive for lying and a past record of doing so, especially in the last ten years?

     After the last assassination of an Iranian nuclear scientist in Tehran, Newsweek magazine all but confirmed the role of the Mossad and the MEK in that murder (and the previous episodes as well).  The coverage was preposterously positive regarding these killings.  To put into perspective just how this ruthless game is played, your readers may find it interesting that when the late Sidney Harman owned Newsweek, his wife was California Democratic Congressman Jane Harman, a member of the House Intelligence Committee.  According to Pat Buchanan, Mrs. Harman was overheard on an American National Security Agency (NSA) wiretap assuring some Israelis at the other end of the conversation that she would use her considerable and covert influence on Capitol Hill to have American prosecutors drop their espionage case against Weissman and Rosen of the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) for illegally obtaining classified National Security Council (NSC) documents on Iran from one Larry Franklin, so-called NSC expert on Iran.  This is just one example of how American financial, political, and media power always seems to intersect when it comes to the subject of Israel.  And since Israel and the MEK are now full business partners in directing their animus at Iran, the MEK will draw an increasingly free pass in the American media and government, as long as they are doing the Mossad and Israeli Lobby’s bidding.

     All of this of course, increases the moral bankruptcy of this policy mix exponentially, when considered in conjunction with the clearly established fact that Israel is the weaponized nuclear monolith of the Middle East; has never and presumably will never submit to any form of international inspection of its nuclear program, not to mention its known stockpile of every biological and chemical warfare agent known to humanity; while the Zionist State’s policies in Occupied Territories and Gaza, as evidenced by its military assault on the civilian Mavi Marmara humanitarian flotilla in international waters in May of 2009, and the earlier Operation Cast Lead in Gaza, are the acts of an increasingly desperate entity led by a criminal cabal of sociopaths.  If the United States is worrying about nuclear weapons in the hands of the wrong people, it should start with taking a hard look at our leading “ally” in the region.  But the money trail will keep that from ever happening.  . . .

Habilian Association: What do you know about further Israeli support for Mujahedin-e Khalq, I mean financially, logistically…?

Mark DankofOne presumes that the Israeli and American money trails going to and from the MEK are closely guarded black-operational intelligence secrets not necessarily even known in details and numbers by the denizens of the House and Senate Intelligence Committees.  Or shall we say, at least not known to anyone on those Committees of Alleged Oversight not in the back political and financial pocket of the Israeli Lobby.  That in and of itself, raises a related issue—the amount of PAC money going into American elections from approximately 30 PACS known to have direct or disguised links to the Israeli monolith in this country, as chronicled by Janet McMahon and Hugh Galford of the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (WRMEA).

     One recent news article is most suggestive, however.  That is Elizabeth Rubin’s New York Times op-ed of August 13th, “An Iranian Cult and its American Friends.”

     This article, in the most Corporate Establishment, pro-Zionist newspaper in America (along with The Washington Post), underscores that the MEK is exactly what the Habilian Association, Mark Dankof, Ed Blanche of The Middle East desk in Beirut, and the RAND Corporation say it is:  a totalitarian cult which not only possesses a warped “Islamic-Marxist” ideology that is inherently contradictory, but is led by Miryam and Masoud Rajavi in a fashion reminiscent of that which governed the Reverend Jim Jones’ leadership of his demonic religious cult at Jonestown a generation ago in Guyana.  Even more significantly, the Elizabeth Rubin expose provides a laundry list of people in the American military, intelligence, and political establishments who are fraudulently working to have the MEK removed from the State Department terrorist organization list and subsequently legitimized.  This would be bad enough, but they are doing it for money—plenty of it, to the tune of $25,000 to $50,000 a speaking engagement on the MEK’s behalf.  (see the excellent RAND Corporation report on the MEK at RAND_MG871 MEK PAPER )

     Most critically, Rubin’s essay is potent for what it doesn’t say, and is patently obvious to anyone familiar with the subject:  These paid American denizens of pro-MEK activities and plans have Israel’s fingerprints all over them.  The names in her article overlap with the Israeli oriented think tanks Inside the Beltway, and the Israeli money on Capitol Hill documented by the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (WRMEA).  One does not have to be a rocket scientist to figure out what is going on here.  This is ultimately the Israeli Lobby and the government of Benjamin Netanyahu and Avigdor Lieberman at work for apocalyptically nefarious purposes.

     The Elizabeth Rubin New York Times expose also mentions the “millions” at the disposal of the MEK for its current public relations campaign in the United States, using these bought-and-paid for players in the American establishment.  It begs the question:  Where do Miryam and Masoud Rajivi and the MEK get this kind of money?  On what basis does Elizabeth Rubin cite the ambiguous but potent term “millions” to describe their financial power?  How many “millions” are we talking about specifically?  And what rag-tag “Islamic-Marxist” cult presently camped out in Paris and Camp Ashraf can have “millions” to dispense on political hired guns in America without major outside sources of funding?  And who are these outside sources of this kind of cash?  Oil and banking come to mind as possible places to look.  Beyond that, one doesn’t have to look too much further to find Saudi Arabia, Israel, the Israel Lobby in the United States, and international oil consortiums, as the chief targets of suspicions as to who and what really constitutes the force behind the attempted renovation of the MEK’s image and fortunes in the West.

     Rubin’s New York Times piece of August 13th is also noteworthy for what it doesn’t mention or explain:  The MEK’s most well-heeled and connected American power broker is the Iran Policy Committee of Dr. Raymond Tanter of Georgetown University, his colleague Clair Lopez of the Central Intelligence Agency, and the assortment of Israeli oriented think tanks and individuals who shadow the Iran Policy Committee, including the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP) strongly linked to Dr. Tanter.  This picture is abundantly clear, despite the reticence of The New York Times, at least to this point, to cover the real players and angles in the story.

Dr. Raymond Tanter: The Intersection of Georgetown University, the MEK/MKO/PMOI/NCRI, and the Israeli-influenced WINEP

     Perhaps the most spicy and inflammable aspect of the story of Dr. Raymond Tanter, Clair Lopez, and the Iran Policy Committee involves the explosive divorce of Raymond Tanter from his ex-wife, Constance Tanter.  Mrs. Tanter alleges a most incredible tale of international intrigue that resulted in the targeted demise of her marriage, career, and personal life, up to and including the specific charge that at the direction of her ex-husband, the MEK and Clair Lopez forcibly held Constance Tanter captive; transported her against her will to Paris, France; and subjected the Georgetown University professor’s wife to a coercive interrogation in the French capital designed to extort a signed capitulation to a divorce settlement characterized by Mrs. Tanter as literal robbery at gunpoint.  If Constance Tanter is telling the truth, Madam Rajavi was personally present for her interrogation and forced capitulation to a dictated divorce decree introduced into the American court system after the fact.

     Are the charges true?  Outsiders who have heard the allegations are at one level incredulous, yet uncommitted because of the cultic history of the Rajavis chronicled by Ed Blanche of The Middle East and other internationally credible sources.

Constance Tanter: Targeted by Raymond Tanter, Israeli Intelligence, and the MEK/MKO/PMOI in divorce settlement proceedings?

Alban Towers in Washington: DC Headquarters of The Iran Policy Committee and Denizens of Israeli Intelligence and the MEK

     One thing is crystal clear:  Mrs. Tanter is taking her allegations to The New York Times and other outlets who have already covered the MEK’s activities up to this point.  Her allegations are buttressed by a thick file of papers, diary notes, photostatically reproduced copies of Iran Policy Committee documents, and a complete list of the Iran Policy Committee’s e-mail contacts by name and accompanying e-mail addresses.  That list represents a virtual Who’s Who of the American Neo-Conservative, pro-Zionist Right; major figures in the Israeli government and intelligence community; MEK assets around the globe; and major players in a number of world governments and media outlets who seem to have more than a passing involvement with what Elizabeth Rubin terms, “An Iranian Cult.”  This story continues to unfold.

Habilian Association: What’s the role of Israel in the Iranophobia project and the creation of a false dichotomy between Iran and its neighboring countries? What would Israel find beneficial in playing a role in this ?

Mark Dankof:  This one is easy.  Any Internet search on the Iranophobia and Islamophobia projects internationally leads straight to Israel and its assets in the American Neo-Conservative Right.  The Center for American Progress report is among those that lead straight to the key players in the creation, funding, and dissemination of the Iranophobia and Islamophobia seeping out of Daniel Pipes, Pamela Geller, Frank Gaffney, Kenneth R. Timmerman, Stephen Emerson, and the Israeli foundations, PACS, and media outlets.  This is a no-brainer.  The way these jokers spun the Breivik murders in Norway is a primer for the way they do business in virtually everything else.  I keep waiting for these kosher Ken and Barbie Dolls to explain Zionism’s history with the United States going back to the relationship of the Meyer Lansky Crime Syndicate to the Jewish Haganah’s blowing up of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, the Lavon Affair, the Kennedy Assassination, the USS Liberty attack, the PROMIS affair, the Pollard spy case, and the recent AIPAC spy cases.  Frankly the Pipes, Geller, Gaffney, Emerson crowd reminds me of the old Colt 45 malt liquor TV commercials in the United States, where the guy sitting at the cafe table by himself in the middle of the bullfighter ring is oblivious to the real wars taking place all around him that constantly get closer to enveloping him while he quietly sips his drink.  The pro-Zionist American Right and Left are just like this:  focusing on an exaggerated and falsified threat, while ignoring the major player in the destruction of their national security, culture, political integrity, and economy.  It is pathetic.

     This is a $42 million dollar industry, the production and dissemination of the constant stream of anti-Iranian, anti-Islamic propaganda in the United States and Europe.  Someone is paying for it, and finds it profitable to continue paying for it.

     By the way, the classic example for our discussion is this:  Who produced and paid for the anti-Iranian propaganda film, Iranium, being promoted by Eric Cantor, Sam Brownback, Joseph Lieberman, and the usual suspects on Capitol Hill?  I don’t yet have the facts, but the promotional film available on the Internet is connected to Frank Gaffney’s Center for Security Policy.  The television spokesperson for the film is none other than Clair Lopez of the Iran Policy Committee and the Central Intelligence Agency.  Get the picture?

Habilian Association:  What is your estimation of the recent American accusation of Iran’s attempt to kill the Saudi Arabian ambassador to US?

Mark Dankof:  I believe the accusation is absurd on its very face.  As I told Press TV the other night, the nature of this alleged plot presupposes that the Supreme Leader of Iran, the Guardians Council, President Ahmadinejad, and the leadership of the Islamic Republican Guard Corps are all idiots.  They clearly are not.  There is no way that anyone acquainted with the intelligence and shrewdness of these Iranian leaders would buy for one minute the notion that they would commission a plot as reckless as this one, with two Iranian individuals representing the unstable profiles of the accused, and in conjunction with an unproven asset in a Mexican drug cartel (who proved to be an American DEA informant).  This is straight out of the Keystone Cops.

     And when we ask who might have benefited by a false-flag operation of this type pinned on Iran, the clear answer is Israel and its Neo-Conservative agents of influence in the American government angling for a wider war in the Middle East.  Israel does not want any regional power in the Middle East threatening its absolute hegemony in the region, especially Iran.  Simultaneously, they need an international PR diversion from their illegal activities in Gaza, the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and elsewhere, where the Zionist State is clearly losing catastrophically in international opinion in every known venue outside that of the United States.  Even in the case of the latter, there are evidences of cracks in the canvas where the Netanyahu government is concerned.  And between the ominous downturn in the American national economy, and the upcoming Presidential election in 2012 where Obama and his GOP opponents are tripping over each other to demonstrate which has the most absolute fealty to American Jewry and the Israeli Lobby’s entrenched position on the Hill, the aggregate picture suggests the identity of the leading candidates for using this so-called Saudi Envoy Assassination Plot for their own non-publicly-advertised purposes and agendas.

     And now that there is a published allegation that Interpol in France has established an MEK-link and affiliation for the second terror suspect now in custody, the odor becomes even more pungent.  Yesterday’s New York Times made reference to this allegation, but only in a small strip column on page A8.  Where is Elizabeth Rubin on this one?  Or is the Israeli scent to the trail one her bosses have told her not to follow?  We shall see.  Mrs. Rubin’s July 13th, 2003 essay, “The Cult of Rajavi,” taken in tandem with her story of August 13th this year on the MEK, fills in many blanks.  Will she fill in the rest of them, and connect the rest of the dots for the composite portrait on the canvas?  If she should do so, some sordid people will run pell mell for the exits.  If she doesn’t, American Corporate/Zionist media will have failed the acid test one more time.

Habilian AssociationAfter all these many years, you should visit in Iran again.

Mark Dankof:  Time and political developments will determine whether or not God will grant me that special privilege.  If I do get the chance to come, it is my intention to also visit Yerevan and some of the Christian monsteries in Armenia, maybe in conjunction with another pilgrimage to the Armenian Christian Festival of St. Thaddeus at the Church of St. Stephanos in Azerbaijan Iran.  My own feelings about your country are best expressed by your 10th century poet, Ferdowsi.  I understand that chiseled on his stone tomb at Tus is an inscription of his immortal words which state, “Let not this body live if there is no Iran.”

Bomb Blasts in Iran and The Raymond/Constance Tanter DC Divorce Case: Is the MEK/MKO/PMOI/NCRI a Terrorist Outfit?

with one comment

    

Mark Dankof: The MEK/MKO/PMOI terror organization. Does it have the fingerprints of the CIA, Mossad, and MI6?

     My radio partner, Mark Glenn, sent me the Agency France Presse (AFP) release today containing the tragic-comedic news that a Washington, D. C.-based 3 judge panel on the U. S. Appeals Court has declared that the U. S. State Department “failed to accord the People’s Mujahideen Organization of Iran [PMOI]/Mujahideen-e-Khalq [MEK/MKO] the due process protections” necessary for the latter to appeal its classification as a terrorist organization.

     The 3 judge panel has apparently not been let in on the history of the MEK/MKO/PMOI in killing Americans working in Pahlavi Iran a generation ago.  The preferred method of assassination was to block off an unsuspecting American defense contractor or Embassy official in Tehran vehicular traffic, and then to spray the car with automatic weapons fire.  What were the “due process protections” accorded people like American Air Force Colonel Jack Turner of Dayton, Ohio, just one of the victims of the MEK/MKO/PMOI?

    My past article on the MEK/MKO/PMOI will serve as an initiation for the uninitiated.  So will Ed Blanche’s research on this organization for The Middle East magazine, in June of 2009.

     In my past op-ed on the MEK/MKO/PMOI, I noted the following:

     And the ultimate paradoxes are these: First, Mr. Bush’s Operation Iraqi Freedom has resulted in the installation of a central government in Baghdad largely sympathetic to the IRI regime in Tehran, and with identical animosity to the MEK’s presence within its borders. Second, while Ed Blanche notes that it “was the MEK that disclosed the existence of Iran’s nuclear program in August 2002, stunning the U. S. intelligence and military establishments,” he fails to note credible information provided by Barry O’Connell and IPS’s Gareth Porter that the MEK’s role in “disclosing the existence of Iran’s nuclear program,” has been to serve as a clandestine conduit of information on the subject supplied by the Israeli intelligence community. Hello, Mossad, meet your new allies in the ‘Islamic-Marxist’ network worldwide.

     There you have it. The Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MEK), or People’s Holy Warriors, is an “Islamic-Marxist” terror organization, which assisted in implementing the Islamic Revolution in Iran in 1979; was subsequently involved in guerrilla warfare operations against the very Iranian Mullahs they helped to bring to power; fought on the side of Saddam Hussein for 8 years in the Iran-Iraq war between 1980-1988; and now, according to Barry O’Connell and Gareth Porter, is working with Jewish neo-conservatives and Israeli intelligence in planting false “intelligence” on Iran’s nuclear program with the American National Security State and Western news media, itching for a confrontation between Tehran and Tel Aviv—even as it now possesses an adversarial role with the very regime in Baghdad installed by Mr. Bush’s War. Confused?  . . .

     Apparently, the 3 judge panel on the U. S. Court of Appeals in Washington also failed to consult the web sites of the Habilian Association , the Nejat Society , and Survivors’ Report.orgTurn off the Israeli propaganda beamed on Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News, and see the reports on these web sites.  One will learn that the MEK/MKO/PMOI has killed approximately 16,000 in Iran after the Islamic Revolution of 1979, along with many other things concealed from the American public by a Zionist-controlled media and national security establishment.

     For this trio of black-robed boobs on the U.S. Court of Appeals in the Nation’s Capital (along with the rest of us), two recent developments bear closer watching in the days ahead.  The first is Chris Floyd’s post on the Jundallah-sponsored suicide bombing in Zahedan, Iran this past week, which is especially suggestive.  Not one American in 100 could tell you that Jundallah has a reported working relationship with both United States and Israeli intelligence.  What are the implications of this link, and Jundallah’s criminal activities in Iran?  Are the CIA and Mossad brokering murder and terror in that country?

     Floyd, excellent as his writing and research are, missed one essential fact in this week’s analysis, a fact brought to international attention by Dr. Paul Sheldon Foote of Cal State Fullerton in a radio conversation with yours truly

     Foote, a Ron Paul Republican, American Army veteran in Vietnam, and past denizen of the American Embassy in Tehran in olden days, tells us in that conversation that Jundallah has a working relationship with the MEK/MKO/PMOI in criminal acts of terror taking place in Iran with the full connivance of the United States government and Israel.

     What in the world is going on here?  Are we forced to conclude that terror and murder are only defined as such when perpetrated by adversaries of the American and Israeli governments, but rationalized as “freedom fighting” when accomplished by our “allies?”  Do once-governing concepts of international law and civilized conduct not apply to the Central Intelligence Agency and Mossad?  And is there a relationship between the American government’s ongoing support for Israel’s lawless, immoral conduct in Iran, Gaza, and Palestine, and the disappearance of a Executive, Legislative, and Judicial Branch committed to the Bill of Rights and the Constitution at home?

     Thomas Jefferson and James Madison understood that an American government mired in constant foreign interventionism and militarism abroad, was a threat to the liberties and happiness of its own citizens. What would they have said about the United States government’s service to the Israeli Lobby, and the linkage to the criminals in organizations like the MEK/MKO/PMOI/NCRI?

     Development number two involves a divorce case currently being litigated in Washington, D. C., involving Georgetown University professor Raymond Tanter and his estranged wife, Constance.

Dr. Raymond Tanter: The Intersection of Georgetown University, the MEK/MKO/PMOI/NCRI, and the Israeli-influenced WINEP

     Tanter’s profile at Right Web makes for interesting reading.  The biography of the professor states that:

     Raymond Tanter is an adjunct scholar at the pro-IsraelWashington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP), a visiting professor at Georgetown University, and founder of the Iran Policy Committee (IPC), which was established in January 2005 to promote regime-change strategies in Iran. Tanter’s experience also includes serving on the National Security Council during the first Ronald Reagan administration and as a Pentagon arms control advisor.

Alban Towers in Washington: DC Headquarters of The Iran Policy Committee

     Tanter has been a key advocate for U.S. support of the People’s Mujahedin Organization (MEK), which has been on the State Department’s list of international terrorist organizations since 1997, after it assassinated six U.S. citizens involved in selling weapons to the Shah. Shortly after the U.S. invasion of Iraq, Tanter vociferously pushed this argument, claiming that supporting the MEK could replace a U.S. invasion of Iran. He said, “I think that regime change ought to be the policy of the Bush administration. But regime change doesn’t mean that you need the 4th Infantry Division to come in from the north and meet up in the south with the 3rd Infantry Division coming in from the south and the Marines coming in from the West. That is, Iran is not Iraq.” Instead, said Tanter, the United States could support the Iraq-based MEK so that it could launch a cross-border insurgency against Iranian targets.

     Tanter revived these arguments in a February 2010 IPC press release, claiming the “regime crackdown after the June elections has fomented a new cohesion among dissidents,” including the MEK and the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), which is also considered a terrorist group. Said Tanter, “Designation of the NCRI and MEK as foreign terrorist organizations acts an obstacle to building a coalition of dissidents. The irony, however, is that members of the MEK are paying a disproportionate price by being singled out for hangings among the thousands of individuals arrested since June.”

     Both NCRI and the MEK also figured prominently during a 2005 IPC National Press Club briefing. Tanter said: “One military option is the Robust Nuclear Earth Penetrator, which may have the capability to destroy hardened deeply-buried targets. That is, bunker-busting bombs could destroy tunnels and other underground facilities. But the Pentagon’s 2001 Nuclear Posture Review states that over 70 countries employ underground facilities for military purposes, while the United States lacks sufficient means to destroy these facilities. In addition, the Non-Proliferation Treaty bans use of nuclear weapons against non-nuclear states, such as Iran. Such a prohibition might not apply as much to Israel. In this respect, the United States has sold Israel bunker-busting bombs, which keeps the military option on the table. . . .

     “Empowerment requires working with Iranian opposition groups in general and with the main opposition in particular. The National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) and the Mujahedeen-e Khalq (MEK) are not only the best source for intelligence on Iran’s potential violations of the nonproliferation regime. The NCRI and MEK are also a possible ally of the West in bringing about regime change in Tehran. . . .

     “The international community should realize that there is only one group to which the regime pays attention and fears: the Mujahedeen-e Khalq and the political coalition of which the MEK is a part, the National Council of Resistance of Iran. By delisting the NCRI and MEK from the Foreign Terrorist Organizations listing maintained by the Department of State, it would allow regime change to be on the table in Tehran. With regime change in the open, Tehran would have to face a choice about whether to slow down in its drive to acquire nuclear weapons or not.  . . .”

     Into this labyrinth maze of American think-tanks, neo-conservatives, the Israeli lobby, an impending Third World War, and the MEK/MKO/PMOI/NCRI, steps one Mrs. Constance Tanter.

Constance Tanter: Targeted by Raymond Tanter and the MEK/MKO/PMOI in divorce settlement proceedings?

     Mrs. Tanter publicly alleges in Washington, D. C.-based Divorce Court proceedings, and to many journalistic contacts, that Raymond Tanter utilized agents of the MEK/MKO/PMOI to terrorize her into signing a capitulationist divorce settlement in Paris, France, home to MEK/MKO/PMOI leaders-in-exile Masoud and Miryam Rajavi. She also alleges that Tanter directly, or indirectly, threatened her with “elimination.”

     These allegations will presumably be examined by the Court.  While ushering at Washington’s National Cathedral recently,  Mrs. Tanner claims that amidst the throngs of hundreds there, she was approached by a Middle Eastern man, who handed her a napkin.  Her story to Paul Sheldon Foote, a bishop at the Cathedral, and yours truly, is that the napkin contained a simple message:  Drop it, or die.

Alleged Napkin of Greeting for Constance Tanter at Washington Cathedral: Drop It or Die

     Are the allegations in this divorce case anger-driven fiction straight out of a Hollywood script for an Edward Woodward episode of The Equalizer?  Or are they a terrifying microcosm of a cosmic tragedy playing itself out in a clandestine battle of governments, intelligence agencies, hoodlums, and terrorists?

     One thing is not in doubt.  Netanyahu’s globally public utterances, along with those of the Israeli lobby and American neo-conservative stooges like John McCain and Joseph Lieberman, underscore that war with Iran and the mass murder of Iranians, is the desired outcome for these constituencies, no matter how many thousands of innocents are killed or how far afield of true American national security interests this Zionist-driven madness really is.

     You heard it all first from Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. 

     And as for Constance Tanter, she plans on telling her story to Mark Glenn and Mark Dankof in a future broadcast of The Ugly Truth.  Stay tuned.
