The most informative interview I conducted in Israel belonged to the brilliant writer, journalist, intellectual, Israel's national treasure, Caroline Glick.
Some of her sagacious remarks;
"All the missiles are Iranian. " [referring to the constant rain of rockets and mssile activity - Atlas]
"We have to be looking at it as the Iranian Foreign Legion . Hezb’Allah was created by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards in 1982. And ever since, it has been an Iranian organization."
"Iran does this a lot. They outsource their war against the world. They created the Palestinian Islamic Jihad in 1988.
Hamas now is also an Iranian organization and they also receive Iranian, guidance and Iranian doctrine and Iranian weapons and Iranian money.
The Palestinian Authority itself is now being financed by Iran. Just a couple of months ago the head of Hamas [..] together with the Hamas foreign minister went inside of Tehran and met with Ahmadinejad and met with Khameini and they were touring Revolutionary guards bases outside of Tehran and Iran pledged to them 50 million dollars on the spot and ever since them these Hamas ministers have been found in all sorts of places carrying hundreds of millions of dollars"
"What are we looking at here? And what we are looking at here is a system that is Iranian."
"And that is what is fighting Israel and of course that is what is fighting the US in Iraq. [..] Muqtada al-Sadr's Mahdi army that’s fighting US and coalition forces and killing of thousands of innocent civilians. Muqtada al-Sadr's Mahdi army is also a Hizb’Allah organization.
Muqtada al-Sadr is very close with Nasrallah, the head of Hezb’Allah in Lebanon. In Southern Iraq in the Shia area [...] immediately after US forces liberated the country from Saddam Hussein, Hezb’Allah set up shop in the south, in Nasariah and in other towns and started indoctrinating, inciting and funding shite violence. Again at the direction of Iran. And so we have to be very clear about this. If, in Iraq, one of the problems with the Americans’ conceptualization of the war, when they were going in is that they were fighting against a government, a regular army………..[..] and they were wrong because they missed the terrorist component. and they were not fully cognizant of just how large the terrorist danger was going to become over time.
So when people look at the system that Israel is fighting, we look only at the terrorist aspect and we ignore the state aspect of it and the state aspect is the central aspect of it and if you want to try to conceptualize a way through this, a way to victory in all this, you have to be very clear about the centrality of Iran, and also BTW the centrality of the Lebanese government in this quite frankly."
If you listened to this Glick interview, listen to it again. If you haven’t heard it NOW NOW NOW. You will be tested.
Tehran is continuing its research into a uranium enrichment program with the help of Russian laser know-how, according to new allegations.
