Israeli Navy Is Ready To Block Routes Of Iranian Oil Export: Netanyahu

AFP 2018 / JACK GUEZ

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has threatened to deploy Israeli warships to help tackle suspected Iranian efforts to continue export oil via maritime routes to skirt US sanctions.

Iran is trying to circumvent the sanctions through covert oil smuggling over maritime routes, and to the extent that these attempts widen, the Navy will have a more important role in blocking these Iranian actions,” Netanyahu told graduates of the Israeli Naval Academy in Haifa on March 6, according to the Jerusalem Post.

“I call on the entire international community to stop Iran’s attempts to circumvent the sanctions by sea, and of course, by [other] means.”

Netanyahu stressed that Israeli sailors are well-trained and adept at carrying out sea missions against adversaries. However, he failed to explain how a relatively small Israeli naval force is going to block maritime routes used by Iran. Most likely, the Israeli Prime Minister expects that in the event of a naval confrontation with Iran somewhere in the Persian Gulf, the Israeli force will be directly backed up by the US Navy. This would explain where Israel is going to find resources to achieve a victory in this standoff.

In own turn, Iran has repeatedly warned that it could opt closing the Strait of Hormuz, a key strategic waterway through which roughly 20 percent of the world’s oil passes, if its maritime oil exports are threatened.

In 2017, Iran exported some $40.1 billion of crude oil, contributing to nearly 5 percent of total world supplies. The oil export is a key part of its economy.

    Wonder what the EU will say about this….

    The Israeli Navy is about to practice freedom of navigation – by threatening an oil-tanker. The gods of comedy are never absent.

    • namulit emperor

      Yeah, and piracy is still a crime in the 21st century, but who of those war-mongers cares…
      And I’d like to hear Netanyahu explain how Iran could ‘smuggle’ its OWN oil that it has sold to other sovereign nations in the first place…

    • Zionism = EVIL

      They simply don’t have the capability. 90% of Iranian oil from the Persian Gulf goes to Asia and for an interdiction you need large number of naval assets in the Persian Gulf and Indian Ocean, the Zionist with 6 crappy missile boats are hardly in a position to bob and up and down in the Persian with thousands of Iranian SSM targeting them. The Zionists are liars like their Indian patsies. Fuck them both :)

  • cliff

    The Israeli are living a dreams,the world knows Israel was created by US elites wealth who purchase Palestinian from the British empire but the out they mind if they believe the USA would fight world war 3 for them. The U.S didn’t block Iranian vessel or any nation vessel what make the scum terrorist Israel think they can.

  • Taz T

    They very quickly left Lebenese water after one of their frigate got hit by a missile. Real cowards only good at attacking unarmed civilians and children. Netanyahu knows well Israel is not capable of doing this and is trying to get his rating up for the election.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      The pride of the Zionist “navy” Hanit was hit by a rather primitive Hezbollah C-802 and left limping with 5 Zionist rats cooked. Unfortunately, Hezbollah in 2006 did have the capability for a double tap missile strike, now they do and much much more. The Zionist are just barking as usual and can not do anything. The Iranian mullahs need to get with the program and test a nuke and the Zionist and Americunt incessant barking will stop. Case in point are DPRK and Pakistan who have nukes an not afraid of anyone and use their military assets as they please.

        what do u think of this news title??

        Iranian diplomat Hossein Jaberi-Ansari : #Russia has never stood by #Iran regarding #Israel, Tehran and Moscow for now have shared interests in #Syria but if the issue of #Israel comes between them, they will part ways.

        • Zionism = EVIL

          It is true as I have said all along. Russia is run by Jew Oligarchs. Russia has backstabbed both Iran and Turkey for over 400 years now. Iranians approached Russia in 2017 for SU-30 and were immediately rebuffed. Iran gave the Ruskie flying dishwashers short time landing rights in 2016 at Hamadan TAB 3, which is a good airbase with modern facilities. The Russian loudmouths advertised it all over and Iranians got pissed off and stopped the arrangements. Russia took 8 years to deliver antiquated S-300 to Iran, that due to legal pressure as Iran had filed a $2 billion law suit. Iran is now getting closer to China and Pakistan.

          • Justin

            “Iranians approached Russia in 2017 for SU-30 and were immediately rebuffed”

            Lets not forget that Iran used to allow US spy planes take off from iranian airbases to spy on russia!
            Lets not forget that Iran used to accompany the USA on these missions!

            Lets not forget that Iran and Russia have been at war for centuries only as much as 40 years a go!

            Lets not forget that the Uranum 1 scandal which saw 20% of US uranium make its way to Iran for the creation of WHAT???

            I back russia 100% before i back Iran 5%

            U love iran more than Russia huh?
            If so, then u must have loved Hillary Clinton and Obama!
            Their number one assistants were the daughter of the leader of the muslim brotherhood and one of the Richest families in Iran!

            u must have LOVED the 1.3 billion paid in cash to iran and the 130 billion given to them by Obama! The same obama who oversaw the creation of ISIS and started the wars in Syria and Libya!

            Iran is not innocent!
            Wake the fuck up!

            Why do u think Southfront finally admitted that iran was building missile factories in syria? They were also building nuclear enrichment plants there too!

            Get off this site for a while and look into it!

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Justin, I state the TRUTH, times have changed. This is not the Shah’s Iran allied to the west. Russia and Iran both have very limited number friends and ideally should start a new leaf. Look at Pakistan, and how its all weather friend China and even Turkey stand by it no matter what it does. Russian nationalists need to look at their strategic interest. Iran is a large resource country to its south and a buffer against Wahhabi headchoppers. It would make more sense to form an alliance with Iran than kiss Zionist arse, as they kill Russians in Syria. To the best of my knowledge, Iranians have not killed any Russians for a century or more. Why do you think the USSR fell apart, even the Warsaw Pact countries hated the Russians. Russia has no friends, and you wonder why?

          • Justin

            Where would Syria be RIGHT NOW if russia did not fly in and start doing its business!
            What would have happened if Iran tried to do this?

            Count ur lucky stars that russia did this FOR ITS OWN NATIONAL SECURITY INTERESTS!

            There can never be an outright victory in proxy wars and the nuclear era! U can bet ur BALLS Russia is making a deal to STOP WW3!

            The deal is:

            Remove NATO missile defence batteries in eastern europe (than can also launch offensive missiles) and we will disallow Iran to do the same to Israel in Syria!

            Russia is contained, now Israel is contained!

            This is FAR MORE IMPORTANT then Iran getting its revenge on Israel to satisfy ur whims of dead jews!

            i hate israel too! But America backs them!
            I want Russia to be powerfull again so we can have a bi-polar or multi-polar world where one nation cant go invading other countries!

            To me this is more important!

            U want Iran to attack israel because u hate the USA and Israel!

            I want to use iran as a pawn (like russia is) to get what Russia wants without being blamed for it (no different to giving the SAA S-300’s to shoot down israeli aircraft)

            I want more than anything the USA to stop invading the middle east!
            i want russia powerful again!

            My friend from lebanon just left my house! He is a malakite!

            He said “they are all just as bad as each other, the Shiaa, the sunni’s, they are all terrorists”!

            And he is right! Once upon a time, it was the Shiaa who were committing all the hi-jackings etc!

            U want world peace?? YES??
            Then stop wanting blood!!

            Russia is doing the right thing!
            If u want satisfaction, play a game on sony playstation!

          • Nowruz

            Let’s be honest. Russia would not have been involved in Syria if their gas economy wasn’t a threat, i.e Qatari-Turkish pipeline (US, Israel backed) and Iran-Iraq-Syria pipeline (Russian backed). Russia like the US is controlled by zionists (the US more than Russia), that is a fact that can’t be disputed. The only difference between the two is that Russia has to appeal to the real Russians while at the same time the billionaire jewish oligarchs that reside there as well. Whereas the US is in your face about their unwavering support towards Israel. That’s why I always said that Putin plays both sides when its concerns their foreign policies. One for the jews and the other for true Russian nationalists.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Well said and 100% factual. Let’s not forget the second reason of buoying Russia’s pathetic and weak global image as its only foreign bases at Tartus and Latakia were threatened. I am not certain about what Russia’s end game in Syria is?

          • Justin

            i agree on the pipeline and the pipeline IS a “NATIONAL SECURITY INTEREST” among many others!

            Putin has Jewish Russians who have interests in MONEY first!
            Ukraine has Jews too and they oppose Russia!
            So Jews do what Jews do! They are loyal to money and power FIRST!

            Was Putin helping israel when it got involved in Syria?? NO!
            Was putin helping Israel when it gave a safety net to Hezbollah, Iran?
            Was Putin helping Israel when he gave Syria S-300’s?
            Was Putin helping israel when he gave Pantirs to Syria?
            Was Putin helping israel when he sent military cargo ships every 2 weeks to Syria?

            Putin puts Russia first!
            Russia is contained by NATO missile air defence batteries which are also offensive capable!
            Russia is using this war (additional to pipeline wars) to contain Israel VIA Iran!
            How is Putin helping Israel by allowing Iran to set up bases in Syria, create missile factories, use its own air defence and mobile missile batteries that can threaten Israel!

            Now, instead of Israel having the upper hand being on the border of Iran, now its Iran who is on the border of Israel!

            So what would Israel do to get itself out of this pickle?

            Israel will make a deal that works for Russia and Israel!
            What would that deal be??

            Remove NATO batteries from Eastern Europe, stop supporting Ukraine and end the Eastern Ukraine conflict, drop sanctions against Russia, leave syria alone!

            Israel in return gets Iran out of Syria! Allow israel to take out iranian threats wthout Russia stepping in! Remove all iranian threats (air defence and missile offensive)

            Russia gets to keep its energy market to europe!
            Expands its energy market to europe!
            Removes missile defence shield from E Europe without starting ww3
            no more sanctions and welcomed in middle east asa LIBERATOR (equals oil deals)

            Israel gets to exist and not wiped off the face of the earth!

            Good deal!

            Who loses? Iran!

            Who wins the most? Russia by far!

            Who keeps what it had and is lucky to do so? Israel!

            Remember, Iran isnt Russia’s best friend! They were at war for centuries! Wasnt long a go iran was helping the USA against Russia! A quick “regime change”in iran could see that happen again!

            Also, if Russia hadnt stepped in… what do u think would have happened?
            Do u think if Iran flew its shitty aircraft in to do what russia did that they wouldnt have been shot down and invaded by the USA?

            This intervention by Russia ruined Israel’s dream of a “greater israel”!

            So i say Fuck anybody who is mad at russia!
            u should be on ur knees sucking their dicks for helping!

            Russia / putin is doing whats best for his countries security, economy and geopolitical leverage! this isnt a game of “lets be friends”! this is WAR!

            Iran needed Russia far more than Russia needs iran!

            Besides, Russia openly attacking Israel = ww3!

            If Iran wants to kill israel, let them do it themselves! Let them organise it, fund it, arm it, plan it, etc etc!

            In that situation, russia can stay neutral!

          • Nowruz

            You make a lot of points and I probably won’t get to them all. I can see your dedication to Russia and I respect that. I will answer some of your questions along with other comments.

            1. Was Putin helping israel when it got involved in Syria?? NO!
            Yes, the Jews in Russia do have interests in Syria just like the Jews in the US who are both backing opposing sides.
            2. Was putin helping Israel when it gave a safety net to Hezbollah, Iran?
            No, Russia did not help Israel “directly” but let’s not forget that Russia allows Israel to conduct strikes on Iranian backed fighters. Russia does not want to add another proxy war on their list.
            3. Was Putin helping Israel when he gave Syria S-300’s?
            Again, Putin has to appeal to the Russian nationalists. When Israel used the IL-20 as a cover which was downed by s-200 then imagine how the Russian families of these soldiers along with generals would react. Syria bought s300s years ago but they were not delivered at Israel’s request.
            4. Was Putin helping israel when he gave Pantirs to Syria?
            5. Was Putin helping israel when he sent military cargo ships every 2 weeks to Syria?
            Questions 4 and 5 can be answered by a simple procedure to protect Russian soldiers while assisting and providing for the SAA. Russia can’t accept the invitation to Syria and not help them… The US sends shipments to the SDF because that’s who they are backing. At the end of the day, Russia and the US are pawns being played at the expense of the Jews the US more though.

            As for Russia allowing Iran to set up bases in Syria. First Iran was the first country who can to assist Syria in fighting ISIL and were invited. The only reason why Russia got involved was that Syria was nearly defeated until Russia came in due to its gas economy being in jeopardy. Russia does not want another enemy inside Syria which is why they do their own thing and Iran does theirs. You criticize Iran’s inability to match up against Saudi backed proxies, along with UAE, U.K, France, US, and a bunch of other countries a true ally would have assisted early but Russia didn’t until they had no other choice.

            How the hell is Iran an enemy to Russia based on a puppet who Iran got rid of? I’ll tell you who is Russia’s enemy and its the same country who killed Andrei Karlov. If anything under Putin, Russia is a threat to Iran more than the other way around. Do you really consider Iran more of a threat to Russia than Turkey? Also, good luck with trying to get defense systems out of Eastern Europe, that’s not going to happen from some deal made out of Syria in regards to Iran… I wouldn’t be so quick to call Iran’s aircraft shitty given those Migs Russia gave to India keeps getting shot down and/or crashing.

            If I can sum up your whole comment I would say you are in denial about Russia’s close ties with Israel. A simple search on Russia’s history linking the Jewish Bolsheviks would prove that. Unfortunately, Russia is reverting back to their old ways and yet they are in compliance with the same country who cost the lives of 10m+ Russians…

            A few questions and comments for you:

            1. “This intervention by Russia ruined Israel’s dream of a “greater israel”!”
            So what’s is Russia doing about Golan Heights?
            2. “So i say Fuck anybody who is mad at russia!
            u should be on ur knees sucking their dicks for helping!”
            Personally, I’m not mad at Russia I applaud them for assisting Syria even if its to protect the economy. But I’m not naive who controls Russia’s foreign policies either.

            I apologize if everything is scattered but you made a lot of points.

            Iran does NOT lose
            Iran wins as Arab countries begin turning eastward. The one component you’re missing here is CHINA. IRAN is now an integral part of China’s belt & road. Irans biggest oil revenue comes from the largest consumer which is CHINA who is not beholden to sanctions on Iran and simply trades in their own currency. Iran wins because it has no Rothschild Central Bank and is a sovereign nation. Iraq & Libya had to go because both no longer wanted to exchange their oil in dollars .
            Same thing with Iran.
            Iran is a peaceful country and wants to trade peacefully aside from the dollar. Without countries trading in the dollar the petro holding up US fiat money to collapse
            This is not the US trying to contain RUSSIA but China too.
            China economy is set to surpass the US & is preparing to put its GOLD backed Yuan on the markets and will force the Saudis to also look into trade with China via Gold backed Yuan which at that point the US is in bigger trouble. China is also slowly dumping US debt as has Russia and accumulated tons and tons of Gold in their own backyards. Also has pipeline from Russia to China almost complete.
            But as long as Putin kisses Zionist was, it will not be the world’s savior. The world’s savior woukd be total abandonment of NATO & an economic collapse coming to the U$ soon as it’s 22 TRILLION debt is not sustainable. It needs theft of others resources to prop up its ponzi scheme and welfare check to Israhell.

          • Justin

            Almost everything u wrote was completely wrong!

            China’s economy has shrunk by over 30% since Trump arrived! FACT!
            America’s economy has risen by over 25% since Trump arrived! FACT!

            China’s economy has a GDP of about 5 trillion a year!
            US economy has a GDP of about 19 trillion per year!

            Iran has been known to switch sides!
            They were against Russia and were a number 1 ally to the USA only 40 years a go!
            Russia doesnt forget that because a regime change can change that again!
            Why would Russia want Iran to become strong??

            US debt doesnt matter! Because the world switches over to SDR’s after any currency collapse! China signed onto this deal and it is happening 100%

            China was going to get 38% of this SDR and USA was going to get 39%…. thats changed! China will get 25% and USA will get 52% which maintains control!

            Saudi’s will never help china if the USA says so!
            Iran is in the middle of a revolution that could turn the country over!

            Putin has put more Zionists in jail than u can imagine!
            Look at Berezovski, that fucker was killed with his own silk scarf!

            So dont tell me Putin isnt fucking up Jews!
            I know he is!
            S-300’s wasnt a “fuck you” to israel??

            Moron, the fact he involved himself in Syria fucks the Jews!
            The fact he pushed orthodox christianity back into the lead in Russia fucks the Jews!

            do u even know what the fuck u are talking about?
            do u?

            Excellent observation. I’ve been disappointed that Putin has once again appeased Israhell in bombing Syria. To the point that the last time it happened, Putin had the gonads to ask Assad why Iran/Hezbollah is in Syria. With this the gig was up, the FACADE over. Assad plainly told Putin to shove it, that as long as the Zionist entity continues Hezbollah and Iran will be in every Syrian city or town and that it is not Putin’s call to make. CLEARLY the Russian fifth column aka Israhell has a say, but what is also obvious to me is that Putin’s military holds great weight. Recall that Putin initially barely publicly acknowledged the take down of Russian Reconnaissance plane as merely a tragedy, embarrassing his military as Russia caving to Bibi even in light of 15 dead Russians. This GREATLY pissed off Putins military Generals who painstakingly made sure that a thorough investigation occurred and of course gave incriminating evidence that Israhell did this act deliberately. An Excellent job they did finally forcing Putin’s hand. CLEARLY he will indeed learn the hard way as Zionists surround his country and are braying for a nuke strike. Never trust a filthy Zionist Jew..

            “Question 2:
            No, Russia did not help Israel “directly” but let’s not forget that Russia allows Israel to conduct strikes on Iranian backed fighters. Russia does not want to add another proxy war on their list.”

            This next answer makes ur question obsolete!

            Russia didnt even help themselves when their own plane went down because of Israel! So if they wont revenge their own plane due to israeli clandestine ops, then why would they do it for Iran!

            Question 3:
            Again, Putin has to appeal to the Russian nationalists. When Israel used the IL-20 as a cover which was downed by s-200 then imagine how the Russian families of these soldiers along with generals would react had Putin did nothing. Syria bought s300s years ago but they were not delivered at Israel’s request.

            Russia didnt bring them in until the Israeli’s killed a russian aircraft and crew! Russia has been blamed for everything ‘russia, Russia” russia”. so russia does not escalate shit! Russia plays the counter punch!
            Now Syrians can kill Israeli’s! Now Iranian’s can have an effective umbrella of protection to build up Hezbollah! And Russia is blameless! BRILLIANT!!

            Putin is much smarter than u thats for sure!

            “Questions 4 & 5:

At the end of the day, Russia and the US are pawns being played at the expense of the Jews the US more though.”

            RUSSIA ARE PAWNS?? DONT MAKE ME LAUGH!

            USA is being played for pawns and they know it!
            Russia is not!
            Russia has bases in Syria (air and naval) and will benefit fromany silk road access to the Med sea!
            Russia has not only protected its energy market to Europe but also expanded it via Turkstream and now the new Nordstream 2
            Russia has been welcomed into the middle east as “saviours” as “liberators” where as the US is seen as invaders and conquerers! Iraq is buying Russian weapons and have a Russian base BY REQUEST! Somalia wants russian bases! Egypt has Russian bases being built (by request)

            This means Russia can control the Suez canal which gives energy and oil to Europe!

            And u say “Russia are pawns”? Do u even know what the fuck u are talking about?
            Who gets the contract to re-build syria?
            Who gets a massive % cut from Syrian oil sales?
            Who gets the pipelines to Europe?
            Who gets the “WIN”!
            Who must israel beg to from now on??

            U can BET UR BALLS THAT THE NATO MISSILE BATTERIES IN EASTERN EUROPE WILL BE REMOVED FOR THE REMOVAL OF IRAN FROM SYRIA!

            BET YOUR BALLS ON IT!

            As fr the early years of the Syrian war, syria had it all under control! Have u ever seen the time lapse apps of the beginning of the war in 2011 to now? U will see what happened! Syria was in total control and winning until the US got involved! Iran didnt need to do anything because the war was almost over as far as Syria was concerned! But in 2014, thats when things changed!

            Russia came in in 2015!

            Dont forget that the Kiev Coup happened in early 2014 so Russia was dealing with that!

            i feel like ur comments are a biased childs comments who only see’s what he wants to see! Russia has played this war perfectly and they dont owe Iran shit!
            Russia owes itself!
            And if Russia can use Israel as the tool to get rid of certain problems russia is facing, it will do it!

            “WE MAKE PEACE WITH OUR ENEMIES, NOT OUR FRIENDS, THATS WHY ITS CALLED ‘MAKING PEACE'”.

            HILLARY sold US uranium to RUSSIA for 145 million kick back to their fraudulent foundation, a massive money laundering scam.
            The pallets of cash is also BULLSHIT. That money is what was owned to Iran pre sanctions/JCPOA deal and to return it to Iran for which more monies are still owed.
            Iran, Syria, Iraq, Libya would have PEACE right now were it not for its Zionist terrorist neighbor and its pathetic lapdog in Congress bought by AIPAC

    The Iranian navy is armed with nuclear missiles.
    Israel will simply use their submarines to fire regular cruise missiles from under the water to start sinking Iranian ships. Israel will not even surface their subs from far away.
    Iran has no counter, as Russia starves their own allies of the advanced tech to resist internationalism-Zionism.

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      Why are you with the impression that russia is responsible for solving every country`s problems?

    • Jesus

      Israel has 5 Dolphin 1 and 2 subs, their range and endurance is limited even for those with AIP. Supposedly the range of their cruise missiles is around 900 miles, armed with nuclear warheads. That has not been verified or admitted, Israel is not going to fire nuclear tipped cruise missiles at tankers, the rest of its standoff weapons launched from a submarine have negligible ranges.

      Russia is currently observing the stipulations of the joint comprehensive plan of action agreed in 2015; in 2020, Russia will be able to provide Iran advanced weaponry directly or to be built under license.

      • jako

        The idiot was talking about “cruise missiles” used as anti-ship missiles.

          US nor Israel have any reputable antiship missiles, American technology imparted to Israel for targeting fixed targets from the Tomahawk fiasco is obsolete and easily interdicted.

  • martin clarke

    Israel and the USA must be the two most hated countries on the planet. It would be interesting to see the up to date figures of civilian death’s the USA is responsible for since and including their attack on Korea in the early fifties. The numbers must be astronomical. It would also be interesting to know the total acreage that the Jewish illegal occupation has stolen since 1900. We know that they control the whole of Palestine which has become one huge prison. The British Conservative Party are the on going architects of this occupation. War Criminal and Terrorist David Bengurion once said that if he were a Palestinian he would hate the Jews. Fellow Terrorist Golda Meyer said words to the effect that if Israel were attacked they were prepared to take the region and the whole world down with them. This must have been contemplating the use of their Nuclear Arsenal which the USA and the UK had supplied them with.to further entrench the occupation. It is not Anti-Semetic to dislike or even hate a nation of thieves and receivers and their supporters in other countries. Theft is theft whether it’s the Third Reich or the Illegal Jewish Occupation.

  • Nowruz

    “Most likely, the Israeli Prime Minister expects that in the event of a naval confrontation with Iran somewhere in the Persian Gulf, the Israeli force will be directly backed up by the US Navy. This would explain where Israel is going to find resources to achieve a victory in this standoff.”

    Israel is trying to start a confrontation but throughout history they have never fought a war on their own. These cowards need a Prophet or a stronger nation to do their fight for them. Yeah, I want to you but if shit hits the fan I’m going to bring my bodyguard to help…

      Well as Pakistan has shown with flying colors that if one has nukes no one can challenge you. DPRK is the same. Iranian mullahs really need to get with the program and test a nuke.

        Bolton tried to get NK to denuclearise first in exchange for a PROMISE NOT TO ATTACK NK … a promise for complete denuclearisation and not a single piece of sanction relief before full denuclearisation.

    • Joe

      It is sooo obvious Israel trying very hard to get the Iranians to attack them …so that US president will have no choice but to die trying to fight Iran while they watch .

      In ME to defeat Iran would need at three times the forces needed to take on Iraq for an even chance to defeat Iran . But where is US going to get that force a fraction of the Iraqi invasion force? So there will never be any attack on Iran no matter how Nethanyahooooo tries.

      Not true and only in Hollywood movies. They did damage the frigate Sabalan though at a loss of one AH-1Z marine cobra shot down and Samuel B. Roberts destroyer that had arrived in the Persian Gulf and was promptly struck an M-08 naval mine in the central Persian Gulf.

    it isn’t iran that needs to be shut down. it isn’t iran that is killing stonethrowing kids and it isn’t iran that is stealing all land on the west bank and it isn’t iran that is operating a concentration camp a la dachau and executing a DEPALESTINATION -program just like hitler ran a program to make germany judenfrei.

    it s the so called israel that needs to be shut down and the squattersliving there to be sent on their way to the next diaspora of minimum 5000 years bút netanyahu must hang from his neck long before then.

  • Attrition47

    Adept? Does he mean massacring civilians in rescue ships?

  • Carol Davidek-Waller

    The Israeli military are well trained at shooting defenseless protesters and hiding behind Russian cargo planes. They are good at using unmarked aircraft to sink ships from friendly nations.
    It remains to be seen if they are effective in a real combat situation.
    They are good at starting conflicts which other countries have to finish. That’s what this threat is about. Starting a war with Iran that the US and its syncophants have to become embroiled in.

  • Allan Greedspoon

      But what could be more heroic than taking-on those formidably armed and highly defensible Iranian oil tankers on the high seas of the Hormuz Straight?

  • hvaiallverden

    This is intresting SF, what I know is this, that ISISrael will do it, because Russia will throw Iran under the buss in an hart beat, and the UssA will guard it all, and what can Iran then do, basically nothing, since they then stands alone, I know some Putin fans will choke on their coffy, but Russia isnt trustworthy at all, histoery have shown it counteless of time, Russia cant be trusted what so ever.

    Again, I base it on acts, not sniveling drivel served from Lavrov the lame and Putin, the ISISraeli Bitch, since RUF is alowing ISISrael to wack Syrians etc, an mass, without even making an pip against the terror state ISISrael, its stunning hypocrasy comeing from Russia.
    You say, Russia isnt in any way obliged, yeah, coward scums always say that, even after countless times stating the oposit and yet they never do anything at all, you may ask an fish or an domesticated Norwegain Mountain Monkey and the answer is the same, bullshit and thats it.
    Its the naked raw political hyporcasy I know will be the death trapp to the Russian fed, you never learn do you, riddiculs AmeriTard, but when it comes to your own back yard, you go instant idiot, and shows us that even you cant handle the truth, much more than an average idiot Joe.

    The war was planned a long time ago, and Trumpstein will do as He is told to do, and thats war against Iran, and so far, UssA is winning, and eventually we all will loose.
    Like the banana republic, of 300 million inbreed sheeps, there are only two humans, one 16 year old boy and an Muslim woman, yeah, pathetic isnt it, and in the world, NK and Venezuela, so far, I cant do anything than hope that you never ever give in, never ever give up, its an fight for the future of humanity, and as we speak it dont look good, sorry to pop the bobble.

    Mark my words, never trust Russia, at the moment to corrupt, to stupid, and to greedy, and since Putin is ISISraeli Bitch, the Johos will soon take over, and then Russia will be raped and plundered as UssA is to day, I know Trump is the last one, before hell breaks out.
    I even know I will not live when it happens, but the paths are there, for those that isnt blinded by every day life.

    anti-semitism is on the rise in europe (and in moronistan as well) and there is some outcry from various governments.but given the latest inanities from netanyahu it is fully understandable that all he is sowing is anger and such anger is directed at people living abroad and who are supporting the squatters on stolen the land.

    anti-semitism is a corollary as long as it is allowed for jewish people or jewish organisations from outside israel, for synagogue-congregations and for various interest-groups (jewish or non-jewish) to send financial support to israel and as most erudite westerners will know, these financial transfers are vital for the squatters survival and thus

    these jewish persons/congregations/interest-groups are

    complicit in the ongoing ethnic cleansing or with other words the DEPALESTINATION-program.

    complicit in the operation of the concentration camp a la bergen belsen, called Gaza with a slow extermination ethnic cleansing program.

    complicit in the murder of stone throwing kids and

    complicit in the ongoing theft of palestinian land,

    and complicit in the starvation of an entire people

    and being so complicit in these atrocities they subject themselves to the same kind of treatment the squatters/israelis bestow on the palestinians alive and not yet killed by the ethnic cleansing program.

    so tit for tat – antisemitism in equal measures for the severe and deadly depalestination-program that even hitler would have been proud of.

    antisemitism is a corollary as long as subsidies from abroad keeps the squatters going.

    prohibit financial support of israel from abroad.

    The Zionist Apartheid Bantustan is as usual, embracing piracy. Interference with shipping is an international war crime, just like the sanctions in the first place. Last time the US Navy ran a simulation war game against the Iranian Navy, they lost. They tried to rig it: again they lost. Imagine what will become of the Talmudic swashbucklers, if they should tangle with a Iranian vessel!
    More to the point, what will be the outcome, should the Zio-NATO cabal attempt to block the Straits of Hormuz, a more likely scenario than Iran doing it? More grief for the Bolton Gang.
