The Dangerously Irrational Iranian Regime

pic-aOn Tuesday, the Iranian government announced that it had reached a secret agreement with the West on its nuclear development. The details of the agreement were not released, but suffice it to say that the Iranians could not contain their glee. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani celebrated the deal with an English-language tweet claiming that the “world powers surrendered to Iranian nation’s will”; Iranian Army Commander Maj. Gen. Ataollah Salehi said the diplomatic breakthrough resulted from American military “weakness”; and the Iranian foreign minister laid a wreath at the tomb of the Beirut Marine barracks bomber.

Meanwhile, President Barack Obama urged the United States Congress to “give peace a chance.” After weeks of sending out his pacifist minions, including faux pro-Israel group J Street, to tell Americans that support for sanctions meant support for war, Obama himself echoed that message. “My preference is for peace and diplomacy,” the apparent flower-child-in-chief stated. “And this is one of the reasons why I’ve sent the message to Congress that now is not the time for us to impose new sanctions. Now is the time for us to allow the diplomats and technical experts to do their work.” He said that a rational, reasonable Iran would be “willing to walk through the door of opportunity that’s presented to them.”

Only Iran is not rational or reasonable. It is delusionally anti-Western and anti-Semitic, which means that America is now in negotiations not just with a terror-supporting state but radicals with more than a hint of insanity.

To prove this point, on Sunday, the Iranian semiofficial news agency FARS, which bills itself as independent but is effectively regime-run, ran a news article explaining that since the end of World War II, America had been run by a shadow government of Nazi space aliens. Seriously.

Basing its report on documents supposedly culled from National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden, FARS reported that there was no “incontrovertible proof” that the American foreign policy agenda was driven by an “alien/extraterrestrial intelligence agenda.”

Not “alien” as in foreigner. “Alien” as in little green men from Mars. FARS quotes Snowden as stating that there “were actually two governments in the U.S., one that was elected, and the other, secret regime, governing in the dark.” This shadow regime had been run by space aliens — also known as “Tall Whites” — who were operating their regime from Nevada after emigrating from Nazi Germany after World War II. These space aliens, FARS stated, built the Nazi war machine’s submarines.

This would be hilarious were it not part of a piece. Large swaths of the Islamic world also buy the myth that Jews use the blood of non-Jewish children in both their Passover matza and Purim hamentashen. “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” remains a best-seller throughout the Islamic world. Iranian television routinely broadcasts Holocaust denial, while Iranian press outlets proclaim that the Zionist regime is producing another Hitler.

Assume for a moment that the Iranian regime actually believes the propaganda it spouts. Why, then, would it negotiate in good faith with space alien Nazis who drink Muslim blood?

Many pacifists in the West, including Obama, apparently assume that no one rational would continue to develop nuclear weapons in the face of world opposition, especially when offered a way out. What Obama fails to recognize is that Iran is far from rational — and, more importantly, Obama’s own assumptions about Iranian intentions put America and the West in a position of weakness. This weakness will be on display for all the world to see when Iran goes nuclear.

        Jesus was a Jew. Your hatred of Jews is due to your hatred of Jesus.

        “They killed Christ”, you almost write that as if you care. Kinda interesting that you rant and rave about who didn’t kill Christ but have nothing to say about muslimes killing Christians. Of course, you would have us believe Jews have “killed millions of Christians”. Where did you learn that lie? Your local mosque? Your local madrassa? CAIR?

            Ayatollah Khomeini was a FRAUD. He was a greedy and demented old fool. His sidekick Khamenei is a pathetic excuse of a dictator. Very few of us in the West are fooled by your country’s leaders and their lies.

            The morons running your country are going to bring about it’s destruction. No one in the West really wants a war but if your country attacks us we will defend ourselves, and we will win.

            Your country, no, the WORLD, was a better place when the Shah was still in power.

        the best defense for Iran is for Iranians to get rid of the mullahs who are leading Iran towards a disastrous war. The mullahs who promote terrorist acts all around the world. The mullahs who are developing nuclear weapons while telling the world they are not.

    The truth is that a rational and reasonable Iran “would be” willing to walk through the door of opportunity presented to them, and if they’re not, a rational and reasonable America would have no alternative but to destroy Iran’s nuclear weapons production capacity by means of a surgical air strike with whatever force is necessary.

    Yes the dictators of the current Islamic regime in Iran are very irrrational, These insane fanatics are Rouhani, Ayatollahs Khameni and the mullahs who are in power. For they have according their kind of Islam a belief in a comming Islamic messiah, which the call the Twelfth Imam ot al Mahdi. They have the conviction that this Mahdi some some day come and than set the whole world “right,” in an Islamic way. Nevertheless, they believe that things have to get worse in the Middle East,and not better. So to hasten the coming of this Mahdi they have the mad Islamic quest to obtain and than use W.M.D.. In short, this may be explained ,in part, in the Bible. For in Ecclesiates 9:3. it teaches “The hearts of men are full of evil and there is madness in their hearts while they live, and afterwards they join the dead.” [NIV]

  • Bert

    Notice how quiet the U.S. Jewish establishment is in the face of all this. And 2/3 of U.S. Jews still voted to re-elect Obama. I call this an act of criminal insanity and a kind of suicidal death wish. This Iranian leaders may be evil but they have an iron determination that is overcoming the entire west.

    WHAT could Obama have threatened Netanyahu with, that could possibly be worse for Israel than a nuclear Iran? U.S. troops in Israel, to enforce the creation of a Palestinian state? If this is true, all the more reason to strike Iran.

    Just more Jewish lies coming from a panicky Jewish grease ball! Don’t think you’re fooling us any longer with articles attacking the left while sneaking in more warmongering like this.

    Obama isn’t a pacifist. He was a raging warmonger when he tried to push this country into bombing Syria to aid the Brotherhood. He has also bragged about being “really good at killing people” – though His Highness can’t risk doing the actual work himself. And he has done more than anyone else, with the possible exception of his little dog Eric, to foment racial violence in this country. I think he let his real intentions slip when he suggested we let “the technical experts do their work” -hear the centrifuges spin . . .

  • Ellman48

    “This weakness will be on display for all the world to see when Iran goes nuclear.”

    Israel will not allow Iran to go nuclear. When it attacks Iran it will mark the beginning of WW III because all the Islamists and Jihadis will unite to attack Israel. If the US and Russia enter the fray the conflagration will become global.

  • turk182

    if Iran was not seeking nuclear weapons,they would not have run computer simulations for increasing the yield of a nuke,or tested neutron initiators and implosions of dummy pits at Parchin.
    If Iran only wanted a peaceful nuclear industry,they would not have constructed centrifuges and sites in secret,in violation of the NPT. They would have done it openly,with full knowledge and consent of the IAEA and UN,and avoided sanctions from the beginning.
    If Iran didn’t intend on attacking the US,they would not be building a missile base in Venezuela,or testing SCUD launches from container ships.
    I’d think Iran has better things to do with their money and resources.

    Iranian lawmaker and cleric Muhammad Nabavian says the country could build a nuclear weapon in a matter of weeks in order to “put down Israel.”

    Nabavian stated in local media on Friday that Tehran could be able to assemble a nuclear bomb in “two weeks” if it had access to 270 kilograms of 20 percent-enriched uranium, 10 tons of 5 percent, and 20,000 centrifuges, reports The Washington Free Beacon, which obtained an independent translation of his remarks.

    “We are not looking for a nuclear bomb, but having a nuclear bomb is necessary to put down Israel,” Nabavian said, according to the Beacon.

      In July, the Iranian website Tasnimnews, which is linked to Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, published an extensive list of 493 fatwas from Khamenei dating back to 2004. None forbade the pursuit of nuclear weapons. Carmon noted that Khamenei in 2012 was asked directly about the morality of pursuing nuclear weapons, and his answer was telling.

    Of course publicly criticising the actions of the islam0fascist government of the Iranian “Republic” of Iran anywhere in Iran wouldn’t be the act of a person who wants to continue to live. Ditto for criticising Islam or its holey prophet.
