Yesterday 4international printed material from an article on DEBKAfile which shows clearly that US Imperialism has clearly joined with Iranian Islamofascism in an alliance that has got grave implications for Israel.
So far nominal pro Israel blog Israpundit has not covered this vital material either on Debka or on our blog. I am unsure about others.
We must pay close attention to what this article tells us. The position of Israel is growing more and more dangerous BY THE DAY and the thing that Israel does not have is TIME.
Any delay will cost Jews and Israel very dearly. Why is Belman, editor of Israpundit, not covering this material?

Secret US-Iranian Dialogue Brings Oil Prices down, Shakes up Mid East Alliances
From DEBKA-Net-Weekly 354 Updated by DEBKAfile
July 8, 2008
Oil prices suddenly slumped Tuesday, July 8, as predicted by DEBKA-Net-Weekly on June 27, under the impact of the secret American-Iranian talks embarked on last month to solve burning issues by diplomatic engagement.
These talks between the US and Iranian delegations, representing President George W. Bush and Iranian supreme ruler Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, have yielded ad hoc understandings on controversial issues. One is an agreement not to allow the price of oil to rocket past $150 the barrel.
(The deep crisis in the capitalist and Imperialist system, where we have the two main Imperialist ideologies, US (with EU Imperialism) by its side coming together with the Imperialism of Islam represented by the crazy Mullahs of Iran.As we pointed out in all of our writings on Yugoslavia, pioneered by Jared Israel of Emperors New Clothes, this has been a working alliance for many decades now. In Yugoslavia Islam joined forces with US and British Imperialism essentially as the first push to make war on Russia, India and above all China. This is being borne out now by these startling DEBKA revelations)
DEBKA-Net-Weekly’s exclusive Gulf and Iranian sources disclosed that the bilateral negotiations were deliberately masked by the war fever engineered by Washington in the form of a stream of leaks indicating that a US or Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear installations was imminent.
(Bingo! Precisely what we Trotskyists at 4international and sharp researchers such as Jared Israel and Gil White have been noticing for a long time. The US Imperialists and the Iranian Islamofascist rulers engage in theatre for the stupid, or at least theatre for the unwary and ignorant. It is in the interests of both to create a pretence of being at war with each other, a war of words represented by this theatre of the absurd. The US keeps shouting about Iran, the Islamofascists do the same about the Great Satan etc. It is all boloney. Their interests coincide and this is where I part with Gil White and Jared. They coincide essential because what is posed in the US and what is posed equally in Iran is the socialist revolution, where the ordinary people in order to survive, certainly in order to maintain their present standard of living, are going to have to take power and create a socialist commonwealth)
At the same time, neither nation has sheathed its military option. Those understandings are ad hoc and could well break down in the volatile climate generated by hard-line elements of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, which are dead against deals with Washington.
The last in a string of belligerent statements issued by IRGC chiefs came from Ali Shirazy, senior Navy cleric, who said Tuesday, July 8: If the US attacks Iran, “we will immediately strike back at Tel Aviv. Our first target is Tel Aviv and only then will we attack US shipping in the Persian Gulf; their destruction will represent Iran’s crushing reprisal.”
(DEBKAfile slightly misses the point on this one. It is very useful to both to have these big mouths in the “revolutionary guards”, the equivalent on the US Imperialist side could be John Bolton, or further down the pecking order people like Ted Belman or Levinson of Israpundit. They too make revolutionary noises against Iran but are in the end going to toe the line behind US Imperialism, because they are not free people, US Imperialism is their master, and like little puppies being led out on a walk in the woods would be lost without their “master”. But in the next summary DEBKAfile make up for that slight relapse!)
Behind the saber-rattling, however, DEBKA-Net-Weekly’s sources reported common ground was covered for three key objectives:
1. The American side was willing to refrain from military action against Iran before the end of the Bush presidency in January 2009, but could not promise Israel would not act unilaterally. In a bid to hold Israel’s hand, sources in Washington have been putting out semi-official comments that Israel is short of the intelligence and military capability for striking Iran without help.
(All Jewish people, read that most carefully)
2. Iran undertook to open the way for the US military to continue to go from strength to strength in fighting al Qaeda and the Sunni guerrilla insurgents in Iraq, to allow President Bush to claim his Iraq campaign had ended successfully before leaving the White House. DEBKAfile’s military sources report that Tehran ordered Iranian intelligence officers working undercover in Iraq to halt attacks on US troops by pro-Iranian militias, including Moqtada Sadr’s Mehdi Army. This has left US and Iraqi government force with free hands for large-scale operations against al Qaeda.
Iranian officers are also sharing useful intelligence on conditions in the field with American commanders.
(Here you cannot help wondering at the total stupidity of all those dolts I have met in the Irish Anti-War Movement. Got it comrades! US and Iran are working together in Iraq! These renegades from Marxism in the AWM could not lead their way out of a paper bag! They have missed everything in the present world balance of forces, and are led by the nose because of their blind and crude anti-Americanism and crude antisemitic hatred for Israel, and love affair with Islam, especially the “Palestinians”.)
3. In the background of the secret dialogue is the Bush administration’s ambition to help fellow-Republican Senator John McCain get elected to the White House.
(This should be written in memo form and posted to sit on the doltish heads of Ted Belman and his arch Imperialist mate on Israpundit Levinson! The only sure thing though is that those two reactionaries and traitors to the Jewish cause in their blind allegiance to American Republican Imperialism will ignore this coz it just don’t fit!)
DEBKAfile’s Iran experts comment that the revolutionary regime in Tehran has traditionally preferred a Republican over a Democrat in the White House since the days when its founder, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, helped Ronald Reagan defeat Jimmy Carter.
(Handy! DEBKAfile even give a little historical perspective to guide our two dolts in the Jewish movement, Belman and Levinson. Waste of time guys! Those two and Israpundit are in lala land as they continue to hope that McCain will be the saviour of the Jews of Israel, just as he was for the Serbs in his role as the “Butcher of the Serbs” along with his Jewish mate Joseph Lieberman)
Some of these understandings are still work in progress, but the oil price ceiling of $150 was definitely agreed and resulted in the sharp fall in prices Tuesday, July 6 by $3.92 a barrel. Some traders attributed it to an ease in geopolitical tensions related to Iran’s nuclear program and a strengthening US dollar.
As we emphasise on 4international the absolute need for Israel to act without delay and as we meet slander and opposition from the strange person called Yamit82 on Israpundit on precisely this position there is HUGE confirmation of our principled stand from a new source:
Tuesday, too, the New York Times ran an article called “Nearer to the Bomb” by nuclear physicist Peter D. Zimmerman, former chief scientist of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He wrote that all of Iran’s activities, especially in uranium enrichment, are evidence that its “near-term ability to make nuclear weapons is gathering strength.”
He further warned that once Iran begins enriching uranium to weapons grade on an assembly-line basis, “it could transfer this material to groups such as Hizballah and Hamas.” They could then “fabricate low-technology nuclear explosives with yields nearly as high as the bomb which destroyed Hiroshima.”
(That is most alarming. However the Jews on Israpundit always will have Yamit82 to save them!!! When we on 4international call for Israel to strike Iran before it is too late Ymait82 comes to the defence of the Mullahs by launching into a typical piece of lying vendetta against us for doing so. So Ted Belman operates now the once proud Israpundit site [when Joseph and others hosted things] by allowing a dyed in the wool reactionary like Yamit82 to roam freely on its once lush pastures and do enormous damage to the Jews of the world behind a phoney “oh so authentic Judaism”)
The understandings unfolding between Washington and Tehran have clearly impacted on Syria and Lebanon. One result was last month’s Doha accord for the election of Lebanese president Michel Sleiman, which has produced a new government in Beirut headed by the pro-Western Fouad Siniora with veto power for Hizballah ministers.
Washington has for the moment lowered the heat of political, economic and intelligence pressure on Iran’s close ally, Syrian president Bashar Assad and even Hizballah leader Hassan Nasrallah, permitting them to assume a role in political processes in Lebanon and the Middle East at large.
The bilateral understandings on Iraq have strengthened its Shiite prime minister Nouri al-Maliki, but even more dramatically revalued the Syrian president’s international legitimacy, although some aspects of his position are still under discussion between Washington and Tehran.
All the same, a senior Saudi official conversant with Lebanese and Syrian affairs put it this way: “On the face of it nothing has changed in Washington’s attitude towards Damascus, but in reality, it has undergone a transformation.”
(I am not at all sure if Jewish people are grasping what is actually happening here. It is Bush in his last gasp days who is orchestrating the Jihad against Israel. But Belman will continue to refuse to take a stand and will continue to entertain on his site those who are backing corrupt and evil US Imperialism to the hilt)
The threats to the Assad regime have receded, notably the international tribunal for prosecuting the assassins of the former Lebanese prime minister Rafiq Hariri, and Washington has withdrawn its support for Syrian opposition factions.”
The Saudi official further commented: “A US-Iranian earthquake is rumbling under the surface of the Middle East, especially in Syria.”
(No, he got it wrong. The earthquake believe me is under Israel and is being inspired by none other than US Imperialism in league with Islamofascism. Still joined at the hip, these two Imperialisms, just as they were against the Serbs in the destruction of Yugoslavia. Will that change the perspective of Belman in his craven allegiance to US Imperialism. Is that a joke! Belman and Levinson are in with US Imperialism to the bitter end)
[end of our analysis of our article on yesterday from DEBKAfile]
Why are we so insistent on Jewish people learning the lessons contained above?
For the simple reason that time is a major factor always in political struggles. And that has never been more the case than what is happening to Israel and the threat to Israel from Iran.
I am absolutely puzzled by Jewish sites like Israpundit. Its resident authentic Judaic “expert”, Yamit82, launches into a scurrilous attack on our site for raising these issues. According to this dyed in the wool reactionary if you are not a Jew you have no right to take a position on any of these issues. Yamit82 particularly hates it if you are a Trotskyist who is supporting Israel. Yamit82 would just love to add to the big Lie that Counterpunch et al are Trotskyist. So his venom against us.
Meanwhile Belman and Levinson continue on their disastrous position supported by Yamit82 in supporting McCain in the election despite his history in Yugoslavia.
And above all in DEBKA we find that the Iranian Mullahs wish for McCain to win. That places the Mullahs, McCain, Belman and Levinson neatly together in one reactionary cabal.
