Mossad: All 11 Jews Missing after Fleeing Iran in the 90s Were Murdered

Monday, July 27th, 2015

(JNi.media) One year after determining that eight Jews who tried to escape from Iran in 1994 were murdered on their way to Israel, the Mossad has recently found that three other Jews who left Iran three years later were also murdered, Ynet reported. The new determination enabled the Rabbinical Court to rule that their wives are released from their Agunah status and may remarry.

Agunah (Heb: anchored) is a halachic term for a Jewish woman who may not be married because her husband refuses to divorce her, or is missing.

The brothers Cyrus and Ibrahim Kahrameni and Norallah Ravizada fled Tehran in February 1997. They were to meet with a smuggler at the Pakistani border, but did not arrive at the meeting and have since disappeared. Three years earlier, eight other Jews who left Iran in an attempt to flee to Israel disappeared. Their families, who came to Israel via Turkey, have been complaining over the years that the state is not doing enough to find their loved ones and provide closure to the painful affair.

A few years ago, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered the Mossad to expand the investigation of the fate of the missing. Mossad chief Tamir Pardo took on the assignment and managed to close the case. In March last year it was reported that the Mossad was able to unravel what happened to the eight Jews who fled in 1994, stating that “intelligence officials received information from a reliable source that those Jews were captured during the escape and were killed.”

Recently the Mossad also informed the families of three other missing that their loved ones were also caught and killed during their escape.

Using this new information, a panel of the Rabbinical Court in Jerusalem, headed by Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef, removed the status of Agunot from the wives of the missing, stating that they are the widows of martyrs. The families are now waiting for the official judgment to be released and until then they have declined to comment.

The families requested a meeting with the President and the Prime Minister so that they will officially deliver to them the news.

Corker Tells Kerry: You’ve Been Fleeced

Thursday, July 23rd, 2015

If U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry were a sheep, his wool would be in Iran’s hands, according to Republican Sen. Bob Corker.

Kerry appeared at a Senate Foreign relations Committee hearing Thursday, applauded by CodePink members and scolded by committee chairman Corker, who told the Secretary even before he testified:

I’m sorry to say this, but I think you’ve been fleeced.

Kerry knows with whom  he is doing business, and he went to work after the candid introduction, which included an admonishment that the Obama administration has given “a state sponsor of terrorism” the capability to produce nuclear weapons.

Kerry assured himself, if no one else, that ObamaDeal will prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. He says he knows that is so.

Maryland Democratic Sen. Ben Cardin, a ranking member of the committee and one of those White House is “undecided” on the nuclear agreement, asked Kerry, Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz and Treasury Secretary Jack Lew to answer doubts he has concerning sanctions and inspections.

Their answers revealed nothing new, and so far, it is doubtful they have swayed anyone, one way or the other.

Idaho Senator Jim Risch ridiculed the agreement for allowing the Parchin nuclear to remain in operation even though it was designed to make a nuclear weapon.

“This is ludicrous,” he said. Money freed from sanctions is going “to be used to kill Americans.”

Kerry answered by quoting leftist Israelis, including a former Mossad director who also backs the “peace process,” praised ObamaDeal.

That was Kerry’s initial answer, followed by assurances that “we have 15 years” to be sure that Iran cannot get its hands on a nuclear weapon. Kerry said that any nuclear development will be for “peace.” How does he know? Because the agreement says so.

Sen. Barbara Boxer, in favor of ObamaDeal, said no one knows better than she that Iran is “dangerous” and that is exactly why the agreement is necessary.

She ridiculed colleagues who said Kerry was “fleeced” and another who said he was “bamboozled,” but that means “everybody was fleeced.” She spoon-fed Kerry questions, asking if Germany, Australia, Span and a host of other countries supported the deal.

Kerry said, “Yes,” so Boxer concluded that it is ridiculous to say that the whole world was “bamboozled.”

Really?

Even more astonishing is her remark, directed to Iran that it better be careful if it violates the agreement because it signed it.

Does she know how many Palestinian Authority terrorists have signed agreements not to return to terror.

At least 130 Israelis do not know that, because they are dead having been killed by the same terrorists.

Yitzchak Shamir

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015

Yitzchak Shamir, born October 22, 1915, died June 30 2012.

Shamir was Prime Minister of Israel from 1983 to 1984 and again from 1986 to 1992. He was a leader of the pre-State Lehi (Stern Gang) group. He also served in the Mossad fom 1955 to 1965.

From the Ministry of Foreign Affairs:

Yitzhak Shamir – underground leader, spymaster, parliamentarian and the seventh Prime Minister of the State of Israel – was born Yizhak Yzernitzky in Ruzinoy, Poland in 1915. He attended Bialystok Hebrew secondary school and at age 14 joined the Betar youth movement. In 1935 he left Warsaw, where he was studying law, moved to Palestine and enrolled at the Hebrew University.

In 1937, opposing the mainstream Zionist policy of restraint vis-à-vis the British Mandatory administration, Shamir joined the Irgun Tzeva’i Le’umi (Etzel) – the Revisionist underground organization – and in 1940 became a member of the small, but more militant, faction led by Avraham Stern, the Lehi (Lohamei Herut Israel – Fighters for the Freedom of Israel), that broke away from the larger body. There, as part of the leadership troika, he coordinated organizational and operational activities.

Twice arrested by the British – during and after World War II – Shamir escaped both times, the second time in 1947 from the British prison camp in Eritrea to neighboring French Djibouti. Granted political asylum in France, he returned to Palestine in 1948 and resumed command of the Lehi until it was disbanded following the establishment of the State of Israel.

After several years during which he managed commercial enterprises, Shamir joined Israel’s security services in the mid-1950s and held senior positions in the Mossad. He returned to private commercial activity in the mid-1960s and became involved in the struggle to free Soviet Jewry. In 1970 he joined Menachem Begin’s opposition Herut party and became a member of its Executive. In 1973 he was elected a Member of Knesset for the Likud party – a position he held for the next 23 years. During his first decade as a parliamentarian, Shamir was a member of the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee and, in 1977, became Speaker of the Knesset. In this capacity he presided over the historic appearance of Egyptian President Sadat in the Knesset and the debate over ratifying the Camp David Accords two years later. He abstained in the vote on the Accords, primarily because of the requirement to dismantle settlements.

Yitzhak Shamir served as Minister of Foreign Affairs between 1980 and 1983. Among his achievements were closer ties with Washington – reflected in the Memorandum of Understanding on strategic cooperation with the United States and the agreement in principle on free trade between the two nations. Shamir also initiated diplomatic contacts with many African countries which had severed diplomatic ties during the 1973 oil crisis. After the 1982 “Operation Peace for Galilee,” Yitzhak Shamir directed negotiations with Lebanon which led to the 1983 peace agreement (which was, however, never ratified by the Lebanese government).

Following the resignation of Menachem Begin in October 1983, Yitzhak Shamir became Prime Minister until the general elections in the fall of 1984. During this year, Shamir concentrated on economic matters – the economy was suffering from hyper-inflation – while also nurturing closer strategic ties with the United States.

Indecisive results in the 1984 general elections led to the formation of a National Unity Government based on a rotation agreement between Shamir and Labor leader Shimon Peres. Shamir served as Vice-Premier and Minister of Foreign Affairs for two years, while Shimon Peres was Prime Minister. Subsequently, Shamir served for six years as Prime Minister – from 1986 to 1992 – first heading a National Unity Government, and then as head of a narrow coalition government.

Muslim Nutcase Says Mossad Stole His Shoe

Saturday, June 13th, 2015

The Mossad is breaking into Muslim homes and driving them crazy by taking possessions, such as a single shoe, according to the British Muslim who founded the Muslim Public Affairs Committee UK.

Anti-Zionists should be cringing with embarrassment over Asghar Bukari’s Facebook and Twitter post, which in part read:

Are Zionists trying to intimidate me: Someone came into my home yesterday, while I was asleep. I don’t know how they got in, but they didn’t break in – the only thing they took was one shoe……. they] left one shoe behind, to let me know someone had been there.

He asked followers to “share this widely, and The JewishPress.com is happy to oblige, although Twitter has closed one of his accounts that posted the insanity.

Let’s not judge him harshly. Perhaps the Mossad really took the shoe to frame him. The Mossad probably firebombed a synagogue, put the shoe in the mud nearby and intended to put the shoe back in Bukhari’s house before calling the cops to catch him with the evidence.

And why one shoe? That is exactly the brilliance of the Mossad plot against Bukhari, who also will be charged with trying to fool police by hopping on foot to throw the police off guard.

It is all so obvious that the Mossad should be ashamed of such an amateurish scheme.

Before reading Bukhari’s rant, let’s look at a few other comments on Twitter after his shoe tweet went viral:

Zionists and Uncle Toms going bonkers. I’ve waited so long for this. Heaven. Now can I have my shoe back??

I will soon be doing a video on my now famous (chuckles to myself) shoe. Watch this space. Watch this space. Haters gonna hate

Zionists are bullies they operate to intimidate muslims. Don’t get bullied. Don’t let them operate in the shadows

Actually thinking about it, they also stole dead children’s body parts #MossadStoleMyShoe Can’t believe zionists upset I said they stole something. Hello they stole the whole of Palestine #MossadStoleMyShoe

Funny thing is the zionists now trying to desperately hide their game of intimidation on my Twitter feed. Bit late the horse has bolted

And now for his piece de resistance:

 

Bukhari's post.

BULLETIN: Islamic State Claims It Nabbed Eastern Jerusalem Mossad Spy

Thursday, February 12th, 2015

The Islamic State (ISIS) claimed on Thursday that has taken as hostage an Arab youth from eastern Jerusalem who sent to Syria by the Mossad, Channel 2 television reported late Thursday afternoon.

The Israeli government has not responded, but the Mossad rarely comments on reports.

ISIS identified the hostage in its English magazine as Mohammed Sayid Ismail, whom it said was drafted by a Jewish police officer who was his neighbor.

The ISIS publication showed a picture of Ismail and quoted him as saying that the Mossad was paying him approximately $1,200 a month. He also allegedly said he was trained for one month, a very short period and which makes the ISIS report doubtful.

However, although the story sounds surreal, several Israeli Arabs have been known to arrive in Syria to fight for ISIS or other jihadist armies, and the ISIS may be using an Israeli Arab as a tool for propaganda or may have actually captured one who was fighting with another group.

CIA, Mossad Collaborated on Killing Hezbollah No. 2 Leader in Damascus

Sunday, February 1st, 2015

For years, Hezbollah terrorists have believed the Israel was behind the murder of its Number 2 leader, Imad Mughniyeh — but a front page article Friday in The Washington Post has revealed the United States was equally involved in his demise on a Damascus street. The CIA collaborated with Israel’s international Mossad intelligence agency to assassinate the next-in-line to Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah.

Former U.S. officials told The Washington Post the assassination carried out in the Syrian capital on February 12, 2008, was a complex joint operation. CIA spotters were tracking Hezbollah’s international operations chief that night. But as he approached the parked SUV, it was agents from the Mossad in Tel Aviv who detonated the American-made car bomb that exploded.

According to an intelligence source quoted by The Washington Post, “The way it was set up, the U.S. could object and call it off, but it could not execute.” The source added that the bomb was tested repeatedly, “maybe 25 times” to ensure there would be no collateral damage, that the blast would be contained.

Five former U.S. intelligence officials confirmed American involvement in the assassination, according to the paper.

It is interesting that this highly classified information is being leaked now, seven years later, on the eve of Israel’s national elections and during one of the lowest point ever in U.S.-Israeli diplomatic relations.

Mughniyeh was on the FBI’s “Most Wanted List” with a reward of $5 million for his capture. On behalf of Hezbollah and Iran he had plotted attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Beirut, a U.S. Marine barracks, CIA Lebanon station chief William F. Buckley, USAF Colonel William Higgins, a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, the Israeli Embassy in Argentina and the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia where 19 U.S. service personnel died. In absentia he was indicted in U.S. federal court in the 1985 hijacking of TWA Flight 847 shortly after it departed from Athens, and the murder of U.S. Navy diver Robert Stethem, one of the passengers on the plane.

With Hezbollah he also was arming and training fighters in Iraq that were carrying out suicide bombings and using IEDs (improvised explosive devices) to attack U.S. troops.

But CIA officials still had to prove the killing would be in “self-defense” of the American people – that Mughniyeh was a “continuing threat to Americans” – in order to obtain permission to carry out the assassination. Signatures for the operation required from President George W. Bush, the attorney general, the director of national intelligence, the national security adviser and the Office of Legal Counsel at the Justice Department, the source said.

The Bush administration understood, however, what kind of threat it was dealing with: Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff told a reporter in 2008 that Hezbollah was a threat to national security. “To be honest, they make Al Qaeda look like a minor league team,” he was quoted as saying.

Despite Democrats’ Claims, Mossad Chief Favors Additional Iran Sanctions

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

Two respected American journalists ran a story in Bloomberg News on Wednesday, Jan. 21, citing claims that Israeli Mossad officials were opposed to increasing sanctions on Iran.

The story claimed that the Israeli spy officials’ position was that if the U.S. Congress were to pass additional sanctions legislation against the Islamic Republic, even if such sanctions were only triggered if the current negotiations between Iran and the U.S. and its allies, the P5+1, that would “tank” the negotiations. This claim was used to show that the Mossad is in alignment with the U.S. administration’s view, and is contrary to the public position of the Israeli prime minister.

However, today, Jan. 22, something extremely unusual happened. The head of the Mossad issued a public statement in which he denied that he is against additional sanctions.

Israel Radio reporter Chico Menashe reported that the following is an accurate account of what happened, as translated at IsraelMatzav:

On 19 January 2015, Mossad Chairman Tamir Pardo met with a delegation of American Senators. The meeting took place at the Senators’ request, and with the Prime Minister’s approval.

Contrary to the report, the Mossad Chairman did not say that he opposes additional sanctions against Iran. In the meeting, the Mossad Chairman emphasized the unusual effectiveness of the sanctions imposed on Iran a number of years ago in bringing Iran to the negotiating table.

The Mossad Chairman pointed out that the negotiations with Iran must be conducted using ‘carrots and sticks,’ and the ‘sticks’ are currently missing. The Mossad Chairman pointed out that without strong pressure, it will not be possible to bring about significant compromises on the Iranian side.

The Mossad Chairman did not relate to the use of the term ‘hand grenade’ with respect to the imposition of sanctions, because in his eyes, these are the ‘sticks’ that will help to obtain a good agreement. He used this term to describe the possibility of creating a temporary breakdown in the talks, at the end of which the negotiations will be restarted under better conditions.

The Mossad Chairman explicitly pointed out that the agreement that is being reached with Iran is bad, and may lead to a regional arms race.

In other words, it is at best a misunderstanding, at worst a complete fabrication, to say that the Israeli spy agency is opposed to the imposition of additional sanctions to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weaponry. It may be true that the head of the Mossad said that any additional sanctions efforts made now would tank the negotiations, but Pardo does not believe the current deal is a good one and so does not see the breakdown in negotiations as a bad thing.

While it does appear that various U.S. delegations met with various Israeli officials, and that there was some overlap as well as some gaps in messaging which would allow differing interpretations of who believes what would happen, two statements can be clearly made:

One, the head of the Mossad does not believe the current U.S. and allies’ deal with Iran is a good one, and Two, the Mossad chairman believes there needs to be additional sanctions imposed on Iran to stop it from reaching nuclear weapons capability.
