At a time when the world’s attention is focused on the horrible crimes the Zionists perpetrated in Gaza exactly a year ago and continue to do so against hapless Palestinians today, the Zionists are busy demonizing Iran. There has been a spate of Zionist-sponsored anti-Iran conferences in the US, Canada, and Europe in recent weeks. The scale and scope of these conferences clearly indicate an officially sanctioned campaign launched by the Zionist State and its apologists to target Islamic Iran.
Speakers included the well-known cast of Zionist villains with a sprinkling of Iranian misfits who fled after the revolution because they could not continue their parasitical existence in the Islamic State. The latest string of conferences was launched on October 21 in Seattle at which members from the America-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the Jerusalem Post, and the Israeli consul general in San Francisco, spoke. Two days later, the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) held a conference to find a legal way to attack Iran. On October 27, there was a conference in Ottawa, organized by the Canada-Israel Committee (CIC) titled “Democracy in Action: The Protests in Iran”. The CIC conference was attended by the same cast of human rights abusers that masquerade as leaders of the Zionist State, and their apologists in the West.
November was even busier for the Zionists. On November 9–10, there were two conferences, one in Cleveland, Ohio, and the other in Washington, DC. The Cleveland conference was organized by a group calling itself Scholars for Peace in the Middle East. These “Scholars for Peace” actually advocated war against Iran. The Washington DC conference sponsored by major US Zionist organizations working in conjunction with the Israeli embassy was to be addressed by President Barack Obama but because of the Fort Hood incident, he could not make it. Instead, his Zionist advisors, Rahm Emmanuel and David Axlerod, spoke. It was also addressed by Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, a notorious human rights abuser and war criminal. At the end of the month, a similar conference was organized in Berlin and on December 1, the same warmongers were at work in Vienna, spouting venom against Iran.
It is interesting to note that people talking about peace in the Middle East are actually advocating war. Zionist Israel is the only nuclear power in the Middle East but it has the gall to oppose Iran’s peaceful nuclear program. Further, Iran is signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) while Israel is not. Last September, the International Atomic Energy Agency passed a resolution calling on Israel to sign the NPT and open its nuclear facilities for international inspection. Both the Zionists and their American backers dismissed the resolution. Yet both have been involved in a vicious campaign against Iran.
There could be no better description of hypocrisy in international politics.
