Iran, Lost in Translation: Now Syria

Updated on March 1, 2012

President of Iran

Mis Quoted?
Mis Quoted? | Source


The International Atomic Energy Authority [IAEA] reported that Iran, although is probably capable of now creating nuclear weapons, there is no sign that they have started or plan to start. It reported that as far as they could tell, no decision had yet been reached as to whether or not they should pursue that course.

Why then is it that Western Governments are so anxious to convince us that Iran is bad and that they are making nuclear weapons?

Why is it that Israel assassinated some of their nuclear scientists?

OK, so you say that it is because Iran’s President said that all Jews should be killed, but did he really say that?

What he actually said was:

"Imam ghoft een rezhim-e ishghalgar-e qods bayad az safheh-ye ruzgar mahv shavad.”

This translated is:

Imam (Khomeini) ghoft (said) een (this) rezhim-e (regime) ishghalgar-e (occupying) qods (Jerusalem) bayad (must) az safheh-ye ruzgar (from page of time) mahv shavad (vanish from).

So, what he actually said was;

"The Imam said this regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time."

So what he was actually saying was that the Israeli Government needs to go.

These are now words that we can understand because Governments in the West often say this of Islamic Governments and have even ensured that the offending Governments are removed. So what exactly was it that was so bad?

Israeli Prime Minister

No Media?

Now compare this to a statement made at a news conference in Switzerland by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, when speaking about the future of Lebanon:

When Israel has done with them, there will be NO Lebanon on the World Map.

Now with this statement there is no room for mis- interpretation, Israel plans to eradicate the country of Lebanon yet this was not high in the western press. The mis quoting of the Iranian President though was all over the western press and is still repeated to this day.

So much for an impartial media!

Why now is the western press so obsessed with decrying Syria after that country alone, out of all the Middle Eastern countries, was responsible in assisting the US Special Forces in locating Ben Laden?

Whether Israel’s invasion of Lebanon in 2006 was justified or not, there is no doubt that Israel was stopped by the actions of the Hezbollah. The Hezbollah are backed by Syria and so now that Ben Laden has been killed, the west can return to the business of following instructions given to them by Israel.

United Nations

The United Nations Security Council has reported 388 airspace violations on Lebanon by Israel and so there can be no doubt as to what Israel’s plans are. However, their plans are unlikely to succeed whilst Syria supports the Hezbollah and so that is why Assad has to go.

As for Iran, they dared to say something about an Israeli Government, which the Israeli Government says about most Arab Governments.

If the Western Governments really want their brave citizens to again lose their lives in yet another war in the Middle East, they should at least tell their people the real reason. Their people do not want to again hear that it was for “lost” WMD or the human rights of the Afghan people.

Is it because by telling the truth, the Western Governments would have to say that it is to appease Israel, a country that is at least as brutal and uncaring for others, than the countries we are to fight?

Is it because the elite that really run the Western Governments are partners with the elite of Israel?

Is it that these “partners” also associated with the brutal dictatorship of Saudi Arabia, have already divided up the Middle East in their minds and are now, only waiting for the misinformed, misguided innocent servicemen of the west to implement the moves in their global monopoly game?

      I'm baffled by the mysterious (previously British), and now American obsession with the 'Holy Land'. The UN and the US are seemingly powerless to control the rebellious bully of a nation, Israel that continues murdering and displacing thousands of innocent people in a frantic attempt to expand their territory "from the river of Egypt to the great river - the river Euphrates" {Genesis 15:18

      How can we shut our eyes to the barbaric shedding of innocent blood? In the name of fulfilment of a supposed Biblical prophecy?! In a complex web of politics and religion, it takes deep understanding of both to understand what's really going on.
