Нетаньяху тогда говорил, выступая в ООН то, что ему было выгодно, хотя разведка Израиля заявляла ему несколько иное.
На это указывают секретные документы “Моссад”, попавшие в руки журналистов.
My friends, I've come here today because, as Prime Minister of Israel, I feel a profound obligation to speak to you about an issue that could well threaten the survival of my country and the future of my people: Iran's quest for nuclear weapons.
А вот что пишет Гардиан:
The problem with this part of Netanyahu's speech is that the last time he made this appeal at the UN General Assembly in 2012, leaked intelliegence documents have now revealed, that even Mossad argued shortly afterwards that Iran was not actively pursuing a nuclear weapon.
Нетаньяху утверждал, что самое позднее через год Иран создаст ядерную бомбу. Он даже продемонстрировал полкус с пустыми папками и расчеты и призвал сообщество помешать этому.
Интересный журналистский разбор.
But Iran's regime is not merely a Jewish problem, any more than the Nazi regime was merely a Jewish problem. The 6 million Jews murdered by the Nazis were but a fraction of the 60 million people killed in World War II. So, too, Iran's regime poses a grave threat, not only to Israel, but also the peace of the entire world. To understand just how dangerous Iran would be with nuclear weapons, we must fully understand the nature of the regime.
Despite the violent and unpleasant rhetoric of Iranian leaders over the year the comparison with Nazi Germany is dubious. A small but vigorous Jewish-Iranian minority cointinues to live in Iran.
Iran's goons in Gaza, its lackeys in Lebanon, its revolutionary guards on the Golan Heights are clutching Israel with three tentacles of terror. Backed by Iran, Assad is slaughtering Syrians. Backed by Iran, Shiite militias are rampaging through Iraq. Backed by Iran, Houthis are seizing control of Yemen, threatening the strategic straits at the mouth of the Red Sea. Along with the Straits of Hormuz, that would give Iran a second choke-point on the world's oil supply.
Netanyahu ignores the split that occured between Hamas and Iran over Syria. The Shia militias in Iraq are Iraqi and while they have historically been responsible for human rights abuses against Sunnis, they are currently involved in the struggle against Isis (who Netanyahu likes to compare with Hamas and Iran.) And while Iran has interposed itself in sectarian politics in Yemen and Lebanon, Shia factions in both those countries represent substantial sectors of the population.
In the Middle East, Iran now dominates four Arab capitals, Baghdad, Damascus, Beirut and Sanaa. And if Iran's aggression is left unchecked, more will surely follow.
Netanyahu’s description of Iran’s “voracious appetite for aggression” and allegation that it is “gobbling up four countries” were expected but exaggerated. The Israeli PM was on firmer ground with his attacks on Hezbullah, Tehran’s loyal Lebanese ally and proxy. The heart of his speech was the statement that Iran is a “genocidal enemy” of Israel: Iran is certainly extremely hostile to Israel and its position and influence in the Middle East have certainly improved in the last year. But independent analysts say the Islamic Republic inflates its gains for external propaganda purposes as well as for domestic consumption. Netanyahu appeared to be doing something similar.
И т.д. Вот так надо работать в журналистике. Беспристрастно и чётко анализировать только факты, не принимая заранее на веру доводы ни одной из сторон.
