With little in the way of evidence, Tel Aviv and its foreign support network have been quick to blame Iran and its Lebanese ally Hezbollah for the recent spate of terrorist plots around the world against Israeli targets. Central to the Israeli narrative on the alleged threat posed by Tehran is that the so-called “world’s leading state sponsor of terror” would be further emboldened were it to acquire nuclear weapons. The incessant focus on stopping the Islamic Republic’s most likely non-existent nuclear weapons program has, however, had the effect of diminishing to some extent the once almost automatic association in the public mind of the dispossessed Palestinans with global terrorism. But that may be about to change.

Writing on the Mondoweiss blog, Professor Marc H. Ellis cites a letter he just received from the organizers of a pro-Palestinian conference in Brazil:

Zionists are in contact with the mayor of Porto Alegre (PoA) and the governor of Rio Grande do Sul (PoA is the capital of Rio Grande do Sul state) against the World Social Forum Free Palestine. In part they succeed, because now the WSF have lost the Usina do Gasômetro, the place where it would be held.

Brazilian Organizing Committee is trying to maintain Gasômetro, but, as we don’t know what will happen, we are trying to ensure other places in Porto Alegre for the conferences, activities, lectures and a local for the media work (the traditional one and the independent one, as well as the News Agency Free Palestine, which I coordinate and whose journalists will keep informed the public and the media about what is going on at the WSFFP in real time).

The Zionists from Federação Israelita do Rio Grande do Sul (Israeli Federation) said to the governor, Tarso Genro, that they fear attacks from Palestinian “radicals” against their properties. It makes some of us to think that they can promote a false flag in PoA and blame the Palestinians for it.

Given the Jewish state’s penchant for using false flag terrorism to advance its strategic goals, the Brazilians’ suspicions should not be lightly dismissed.
