The only open-minded person on social media

The only open-minded person on social media

I’M EXAGGERATING! Calm down. Actually there are lots of open-minded people on social media. But it’s interesting that a person who I was warned to avoid because she’s “an extremist” has actually been one of the least-rigid Twitter users I’ve encountered. She’s very passionate and opinionated—but every time I’ve given her food for thought, she’s said, “Okay. Maybe.” That’s the sign of a great mind. I can’t ask for anything else in a person. “Maybe.” Do you know how rare that is these days?

She’s sent me a question about what I call the greatest deception operation in history: the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), otherwise known as the Iran nuclear deal. Before I answer the question, I’ll show you what I can’t stand about social media.

For whatever reason, Irish Jew-haters have rediscovered me. I addressed them last night, so I’ll let that post be the next-to-last-word.


People are also bringing up the Hamas deception operation that claimed the lives of Ismail Bakr, Mohammed Bakr, Ahed Bakr, and Zakaria Bakr. This is a typical exchange.


What am I supposed to do with that? We live in an era in which utterly uninformed people loudly quack their opinions despite having no factual knowledge on the topic. And they always use fallacious debating techniques.


As always, those who claim to oppose only Zionism or Israel actually oppose something else entirely.


How about the perspective of the Islamic State? Should we be tolerant of that?

Ms. Eckersley used another fallacious debating technique, “appeal to authority.” She asked me if I honestly thought Peter Beaumont of the Guardian would lie about Israel.

Of course. Absolutely.


“Hasbara” is Hebrew for “explanation.” It’s become a code word among Jew-haters for Israeli propaganda. Beaumont obviously despises Jews. And he did lie in his report. First he wrote this.


Then he changed it to this.

The first projectile hit the sea wall of Gaza City’s little harbour just after four o’clock. As the smoke from the explosion thinned, four figures could be seen running, ragged silhouettes, legs pumping furiously along the wall. Even from a distance of 200 metres, it was obvious that three of them were children.

Jumping off the harbour wall, they turned on to the beach, attempting to cross the short distance to the safety of the Al-Deira hotel, base for many of the journalists covering the Gaza conflict.

They waved and shouted at the watching journalists as they passed a little collection of brightly coloured beach tents, used by bathers in peacetime.

It was there that the second shell hit the beach, those firing apparently adjusting their fire to target the fleeing survivors. As it exploded, journalists standing by the terrace wall shouted: “They are only children.”

In the space of 40 seconds, four boys who had been playing hide and seek among fishermen’s shacks on the wall were dead. They were aged between seven and 11; two were named Mohammad, one Zakaria and the youngest Ahed. All were members of the extended Bakr family.

Initially I thought that an explosion had gone off behind the four running boys who Stefanie Dekker of al-Jazeera photographed from the Commodore Hotel.


But there’s no evidence whatsoever that such an explosion took place. Peter Beaumont’s first draft didn’t mention it, and the other alleged eyewitness accounts are all over the place. Some have no explosion, some have an explosion behind the boys, some have an explosion among them, and some say that all four boys were killed by an explosion, even though they arrived at the al-Deira Hotel.

Ms. Eki Eki Eki Eki P’tang Zoom Boing G’m Zowie Zim knows nothing about the deaths of the Bakr boys, but she still says I’m wrong.

Finally, we have members of the Agency, a conglomeration of Russian government-paid Jew-haters who pose as “beautiful” young women.


I wrote “the Academy,” but I meant “the Agency.”

This photo is actually of a Russian model named Svetlana Bilyakova.


While Arabs and Israelis are changing the Middle East for the better, Russia is reduced to trolling social media. Pathetic.

Now the question that a Twitter user asked me about my theory that the Iran nuclear deal is a deception operation designed to give Israel and the Arab League a casus belli to attack Iran.

The battle lines, as they are currently drawn, are as follows:

On one side, we have Russia, Syria, Iran-Hezbollah fighting ISIS in Syria. On the other side we have 30 “rebel” groups fighting the Assad coalition…and ISIS. So we have two enemies who, when they are not fighting each other are supposedly fighting a common enemy, ISIS.

(I have always said Syria is a cluster-f*ck.)

Now you want to throw Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and Israel into the mix, which redraws the Middle East as follows:

Russia, Syria, Iraq (Baghdad), Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Israel = “good guys”

ISIS, Iran-Hezbollah = “bad guys”

But wait!

Isn’t Iran-Hezbollah part of the Russia, Syria, Iraq (Baghdad) coalition? Which gives us Iran-Hezbollah on both sides!

(Which is true.)

But, Israel and Iran-Hezbollah on the same side?

While Israel, Saudi Arabia, and Egypt plan to attack Iran?

Do you see my problem? Please explain this to me like I am two years old.

First, we need to recognize that these guys arm, train, and fund all terrorists, including the ones they themselves are fighting.


Hezbollah is strictly on the side of Iran and Syria. The Islamic State will ally itself with and fight any dictator or terrorist group. Russia is technically on the side of Iran, Syria, and Hezbollah, but that support is window dressing. Since 2011, Russia has sent about six tanks and ten armored fighting vehicles to Syria. Russia has also created the means for Israel to defeat all the missiles that Putin is sending to Iran and may send to Syria.

The Russians picked up something from Israel on April 2, 2015.


Although it may have been ten intelligence-gathering unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), I don’t think so. The report indicates that the manufacturer—Israel Aerospace Industries—delivered twelve UAVs to Russia in 2011. I don’t see the Russians sending one of their Antonov AN-124 transports for UAVs. It was something more important.

Russians love intrigue, and Putin loves being the center of attention. The Saudis say that they’ve convinced Russia to let the Arab League overthrow the Iranian mullahs and take out Assad. Based on Russian actions, I think they’re on the sidelines.

The Arab League has opposed Assad for years. In May of 2008 the Saudis offered to create an Arab ground force to invade Lebanon and destroy Hezbollah, but President Bush refused to give them the air power and logistics they requested. It’s clear that the Gulf Cooperation Council—Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, and Bahrain—then turned to Israel, which provided technology and training.

So the battle lines are actually thus:

Iran, Syria, Hezbollah, and the Houthis as one axis.

Al-Qaeda and the thirty-odd other jihadist groups fighting the above while being supported by Iran.

The Islamic State fighting everybody off and on while being supported by Iran.

Palestinian armed groups fighting each other, the Islamic State, al-Qaeda, Syria, and Israel while being supported by Iran.

The Arab League, Senegal, and Israel fighting all of the above.

Russia is not actively fighting but did rehearse an amphibious landing with Egypt on June 6, 2015.


Therefore I think that the Russians helped the UAE land hundreds of armored vehicles in Yemen, July of 2015.

And Pakistan has contributed both ships and UAVs to the fight in Yemen. Initially I thought that the Pakistani and Senegalese troops sent to Saudi Arabia were going to be deployed to Yemen, but it appears that the Saudis and the United Arab Emirates trained Yemenis to do most of the fighting. The Yemenis are equipped with light armored vehicles and mine resistant ambush protected vehicles (MRAPs). Special Forces from Saudi Arabia and the UAE are attached to the Yemeni units, as are tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, and self-propelled artillery pieces. Coalition jets provide air support.

The Twitter user who asked me the above question says that her friend—a US Marine—told her about lots of activity at the air bases around the Nevada National Security Site. The marine said that it was the Israelis.


My brother Tim photographed an Airbus A380 flying over our house on the JANET route, toward the Nevada National Security Site.


The only airports along that route that can handle the giant A380 are military facilities. At least five A380s flew over our house. They had to be carrying troops who needed to train in absolute secrecy.

Four independent witnesses have now confirmed to me that very large military exercises were held in the American Southwest, in terrain identical to that of Iran. One US Marine said unequivocally that the Israelis were involved. The witnesses said that about 100 helicopters carried out live-fire exercises, with as many as fifty gunships shooting hundreds of thousands of rounds. The entire Israeli Air Force has about 48 Apache gunships; I’m sure that the air assaults that my witnesses saw were actually being rehearsed by the Israelis, the Arab League, the Senegalese, the Pakistanis, and the Turks.

Yes, the Turks have sent 5000 troops to Qatar. They’ve been billeted at a base built especially for them.

So, to my open-minded Twitter pal, I hope I’ve answered some of your questions. As I always tell you, it’s not necessary for you to agree with me. But it’s great that you say, “Maybe.”

This is Rear Admiral Mary P. O’Donnell, Director of Mission Support Services at the Nevada National Security Site.


Is that the most awesome face you’ve ever seen? She knows everything. My whole cockamamie theory is true.
