AN OPEN LETTER TO BENJAMIN NETANYAHU
Five minutes after [an attack on Iran], contrary to what the skeptics say, I think a feeling of relief will spread across the region.
I am the Queen of England.
BOLDFACED TEXT DENOTES MY EMPHASISDear Bibi (Can I call you Bibi? Well, I'm going to):
Of course you will never see this. But if somehow you do, please do not send Mossad after me. I am inconsequential to your thirst for blood.
Listen Bibi, I am unsure whether you are just a typically duplicitous politician or if you suffer from paranoid schizophrenia and seriously consider Iran to be an existential threat to your country.
Either way, however, you are leading not only your own people, but all Middle Eastern peoples and indeed the entire world to yet another conflict. Are you a sociopath, Bibi? Why would you want to do such a thing?
In 2006, you said:
It's 1938 and Iran is Germany. And Iran is racing to arm itself with atomic bombs. They are preparing another Holocaust for the Jewish state.
Of course, this is a complete lie and a 7 year old lie at that. But wait, your asininity gets even more entertaining.
In 1992 you suggested that Iran was no more than 5 years away from the nuclear bomb.
Also in 1992, your colleague, then Foreign Minister Shimon Peres said:
Iran is the greatest threat and greatest problem in the Middle East because it seeks the nuclear option while holding a highly dangerous stance of extreme religious militancy.
Speaking to the US Congress on July 10th, 1996, you said:
The most dangerous of these regimes is Iran, that has wed a cruel despotism to a fanatic militancy. If this regime, or its despotic neighbor Iraq, were to acquire nuclear weapons, this could presage catastrophic consequences, not only for my country, and not only for the Middle East, but for all mankind...Only the United States can lead this vital international effort to stop the nuclearization of terrorist states. But the deadline for attaining this goal is getting extremely close.
While he of course is not someone who is able to decide to launch those nukes (thank God), paranoid Professor David Perlmutter of the University of Iowa and Louisiana State University penned these disturbing words in a 2002 edition of the LA Times:
Nice huh? Iran is the most dangerous regime in the region and world? What a laughable assertion.
Bibi, It would certainly add some legitimacy to the demand that Iran make its nuclear program totally transparent if you did the same. Of course, the rogue government you head would never do this. And thus, your hypocrisy is plain. As the Times of Israel reported yesterday (https://web.archive.org/web/20170801052938/http://www.timesofisrael.com/we-dont-intend-to-build-nukes-israel-told-us-in-1975/), new documents show that Israeli officials told the United States in 1975 that they had no intention of building nuclear weapons.
Not only did this turn out to be a lie, but it was a lie before it was even spoken, as your nuclear arsenal came into existence after the 1967 Six Day War. But of course, it is the Iranians who are the warmongering liars, right Bibi?
Once your nation's dirty little secret was exposed in the 1980s by Mordechai Vanunu (https://web.archive.org/web/20160316204517/http://www.theguardian.com/world/2004/apr/16/israel), the Mossad kidnapped him from Europe and put him in jail for 18 years, 11 in solitary confinement. I wonder if everything he said was true.
In pointing all this out to someone, they defended you saying something to the effect of the reason Iran hasn't gotten the bomb is because of Israel and the West preventing it.
Could it not have anything to do with the fact that the Islamic Republic has consistently renounced and denounced as an affront to the Islamic religion (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ft0NWrvxZv8) all weapons of mass destruction, particularly nuclear weapons. Indeed, despite relatively warm relations, Iran condemned North Korea's most recent nuclear test (https://web.archive.org/web/20171107060939/https://www.reuters.com/article/us-iran-nuclear-korea-north/iran-calls-for-end-to-nuclear-arms-after-north-korean-test-idUSBRE91B0KC20130212).
And it couldn't have anything to do with the fact that you are just a liar.
With Sincere And Boundless Contempt,
