The Boys Who Cried Wolf


I’m no fan of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the illegally elected President of Iran, suppressor of free speech, and hater of Jews. But…

I’m also not a fan of the neocon right wing kooks like ekg’s friend LilMike over at The VSJ and others who distribute mass disinformation with the intent of stirring the pot. Over the past few months, actually years, this has been the Republican modus operandi – lie when all else fails.

This tactic has, in fact, worked well for the neocon Republican crowd that they’ve been using it in the current debate over health care. But that’s another story…

What I’d like to dismiss today is the recent internet furor regarding claims that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is Jewish. Using another well-worn tactic of the neocon far right as taught to them by the neocon Zionist far right of Israel the answer is simple: Claim your opponent is a self-hating Jew.

In the case of Ahmadinejad this might be effective if, in fact, he is Jewish.

But he’s not. Really, he’s not Jewish!

And the investigation into this silly claim is hilarious although not uncommon given LilMike’s propensity for using scurrilous sources when making his unfounded claims.

In the case of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the source of this wild claim is a blog. Yes, a blog. Written by Mehdi Khazali in January. Who is Mehdi Khazali? He’s the son of a prominent Iranian political ally of Ahmadinejad who’s been so vocal in his hate of Ahmadinejad that his father’s disowned him. He’s claimed hero status lately as a result of his arrest during the recent political elections in Iran for (rightfully) backing Mir Hossein Mousavi and has become a frequent source to the right wing neocon Jewish Zionist internet paper, Arutz Sheva.

See where I’m going with this?

The Path to Disinformation – Neocon Style:

1. Find a blog supporting your position.

2. Publish the unsubstantiated accusations made in the blog on Radio Free Europe and Arutz Sheva; throwing it against the wall hoping it’ll stick.

3. If that doesn’t get picked up by the MSM, wait a few months and try again, this time with an article in The Telegraph, and a repeat of the original item by Arutz Sheva, albeit with a new date.

4. Stir the pot again, throw it against the wall again, and see what sticks.

Thus the problem I, and the rest of the reasonable people in this world, see:

If you cry “WOLF!” too often, how do you suspect us to believe you when the wolf actually shows upabr1163l
