America's entanglement with Israel

Is someone in Press TV covering for Israel?

Iran’s state-funded Press TV has just conducted an excellent interview with former American intelligence linguist Scott Rickard, in which he puts the self-destructive anti-Iran sanctions in their proper pro-Israel context, outlines John McCain’s intimate ties to the Jewish Zionist mafia, and points out the 19th century Zionist-sponsored subversion of evangelical Protestantism through the Scofield Reference Bible. But for whatever reason, whoever wrote the Press TV report’s title — “Iran suffers for its liberty from US control: S. Rickard” — misrepresented Rickard’s searing exposé of the Israel Lobby’s occupation of U.S. policy. Given that this is certainly not the first time that this sort of diversion has happened, one has to wonder if someone in Press TV is covering for Israel.

  1. It wouldn’t surprise me in the least, Maidhc. I imagine they have infiltrated every organization that is opposed to them in some way.

  2. Indeed it seems that way, Angus. People can follow a discussion of this post on my Facebook timeline.

  3. I think it’s a syntax or word choice error on the part of the Iranian-to-English translator. I think what was meant is something like, “Because Iran resists US control, Iran suffers.”
