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.
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.
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:
