Europe’s Biggest Enemy Isn’t Russia Nor Islamic Terrorism, but Israel, by Martin Jay

Europe shouldn’t mistake either the U.S. or Israel as a friend. From Martin Jay at

When Joe Biden took office, many pundits said that at least
relations between the U.S. and EU would be restored. But the Iran deal
is the ultimate test of just how much he loves the old continent.

Just how far will Israel go to scupper the so-called Iran deal from
being signed by both Iran and the West? And will it play a fair game or
use underhand and covert tactics to achieve its goal of the deal never
being signed? Recently, we have seen the talks in Vienna progress as
even the Americans say that certain key negotiating points have been
taken out of the deal from the Iranians which has made the negotiations
move closer to an agreement; we have also seen though Israel pulling out
all the stops, from a PR and lobbying perspective at least.

And then there is the murky subject of skullduggery to destroy the
talks. If you’re one of these people who believes in fairies at the
bottom of the garden or that certain toothpastes can make your teeth
whiter, then you might not buy into Israel using Mossad to derail the
deal. Attacks on U.S. forces for example in Iraq,
supposedly carried out by Iran-backed militias would normally have most
people pointing the finger at Iran, proclaiming that Tehran is not at
all serious about the deal but just playing along for time so that it
can roll out a nuclear bomb. Then there is the curious case of the
Salman Rushdie attack, which, again, many would point out could be
attributed to the Iranians who still have a very much ‘alive’ fatwa
against the British writer. Indeed, even the Supreme Leader is reported
to have made a comment against Rushdie when he heard of the knife attack..
