West's criminal "deal" for Israeli criminal attack on Iran

Even if this "deal" (ie "criminal conspiracy") for "concessions"  is made in lieu of Israel actually complying with UN resolutions to withdraw from illegally occupied lands, there will be, as usual, no one to hold Israel to account.

Israeli navy in Suez Canal prepares for potential attack on Iran

Two Israeli missile class warships have sailed through the Suez Canal ten days after a submarine capable of launching a nuclear missile strike, in preparation for a possible attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities.

The deployment into the Red Sea, confirmed by Israeli officials, was a clear signal that Israel was able to put its strike force within range of Iran at short notice. It came before long-range exercises by the Israeli air force in America later this month and the test of a missile defence shield at a US missile range in the Pacific Ocean.
....

The exercises come at a time when Western diplomats are offering support for an Israeli strike on Iran in return for Israeli concessions on the formation of a Palestinian state.

If agreed it would make an Israeli strike on Iran realistic “within the year” said one British official....

I presume that any Israeli attack upon Iranian nuclear facilities would be the death-knell of the Iranian opposition movement.

I would guess so.

Blasts which scattered fissionable material over wide areas making them uninhabitable would be an eternal reminder to all Iranians of the terrorism of Israel and its complicit allies.

Not much room for rapprochement there, but, not an issue as far the West is concerned--no doubt they'll wait till the prevailing winds are away from israel and Europe--and of course the oil will still be uncontaminated.

In Visit To Israel, Trump Escalates Attacks on Iran

http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2017/05/23/isra-m23.html

"Donald Trump made clear from the moment of his arrival in Israel that the purpose of his trip, promoted by the White House and the media as part of a quest for 'Middle East peace', is the consolidation of a reactionary regional alliance in support of a US military buildup against Iran.

The French daily Le Monde editorialized that Washington was pursuing a 'Cold War' - style policy in the Middle East, dividing it between 'two camps': Sunni Arabs, Israelis and Americans on one side; Iranians, their Syrian protege and Russia on the other,' warning that it would pave the way to the 'continuation of the endless wars ravaging the region."

Will Canadian 'progressives' lend their support to this new USRAELI 'bomb bomb Iran' project as they did with the destruction of Libya? Or regime change in Syria? In response to the usual dogwhistles from the usual quarters, watch for a rising Iranophobia coming here soon...

Obviously proof that rabble is just part of the deep state conspiracy.

I generally try not to comment on the multifarious defects of this site, because why bother, but since you raise the subject, I would say the culprit is a whole lot of technical incompetence, not the deep state.

Rotting carcass?

@ Michael

Yup, though what it really is isn't his point I suspect, but rather how you can spin it into the alleged conspiracy.

Wowzers.  That's some SERIOUS insult density!  More passive-aggressiveness per word than I've seen in a long time.  Let's parse it.

"Will Canadian 'progressives'" -- I guess they're fake progressives, hence the need for scare quotes.

"lend their support to this new USRAELI" -- They're just the one country now, I guess!

"'bomb bomb Iran' project" -- yes, they don't ever have reasons, they just like killing innocents and buying more bombs from the MIC.

"as they did with the destruction of Libya?" -- remember Libya?  Must be the same thing.

"Or regime change in Syria?" -- Ya!  More of the same (except there's been no regime change in Syria).

"In response to the usual dogwhistles" -- this one's a "two-fer".  There are evidently dog whistles, and they're evidently "the usual" ones.

"from the usual quarters" -- and they're coming from the same people.  The right wing?  The "faux" progressives?  Is there even a difference?

"watch for a rising Iranophobia coming here soon..." -- if "Iranophobia" doesn't disappear suddenly, that proves that everything else must be true.

Trump is About to Really Mess Up in the Middle East  -  by Robert Fisk

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/47119.htm

"...In Riyadh, Trump couldn't mention where most of the 9/11 hijackers came from or whose Sunni faith-cult was the inspiration for ISIS - nor which country chopped off heads with ISIS-like relish. (Answer: Saudi Arabia).

And when he arrived in Israel on Monday, Trump was faced with a new censorship protocol: don't mention who was occupying whose property in the West Bank or which country was outrageously and continuously stealing land - legally owned by Arabs - for Jews and Jews only. (Answer: Israel).

So bingo, in the biggest Middle East alliance ever created in history, the Saudis and the other Sunni Arab dictators and America's crackpot President and Israel's cynical Prime Minister have all agreed on the identity of the devil country they can all curse with one voice, inspirer of 'world terror', instigator of Middle East instability, the greatest threat to world peace: Shia Iran.

A Martian who might also have landed at Tel Aviv at the same time would surely conclude that Iran was the creator of ISIS and that Israel was already bombing the cruel and violent cultists of the Islamic Caliphate. And Martians - surely smarter than the US President - would thus be much amazed to discover that Israel has been bombing the Iranians and the Syrians and their militias,

but has not once - ever - bombed ISIS..."
