America's entanglement with Israel

Tehran: Israel’s Greatest Asset?

leave a comment »

In a perceptive piece entitled “Politicians Want War With Iran,” Eric Margolis also notes how Tehran serves as an asset of its enemies:

Iran shows spectacular public relations ineptitude by fulminating against Israel, calling it a “tumor” that must be removed, and firing obsolete tactical missiles and staging flamboyant military exercises by its feeble armed forces.

In fact, Iran is doing the work of Israel’s hard-right Likud government by convincing the world that the Jewish state faces another Holocaust. Canada’s blustering, ill-informed foreign minister just repeated this absurd canard even though Iran is not believed to have any nuclear weapons. He preposterously compared Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to Hitler.

Ahmadinejad, however, is not spared by Margolis either:

Here we go again. These targets of western wrath and vilification actually seem to enjoy their starring roles as villains and hate figures. Any publicity is better than no publicity.
