European industry reaped profits in Iran while Israeli Jews keep dying at the hands of Iran's allies in Israel - The Iran nuclear deal will unleash a major war in the Middle East and it is already triggering the Third Intifada.
By Giulio Meotti 
A group of German industrial firms from many sectors including oil and gas, chemicals, cars, health and construction such as Basf, Siemens and ThyssenKrupp, just returned from the second official German business trip to Iran in as many months. At each meeting, photos of the Supreme Leaders Ali Khamenei and Ayatollah Komeini adorned the wall. 
Iran and Germany's attitude regarding Israel
The Iranian willing executioners were happy, since most Germans favor nuclear weapons for Iran, and employ Nazi terminology against Israel.  German public opinion contains once again elements that envision a world without the Jewish state.

This encounter took place at the Paris anti-terror "Je-suis-Charlie" march where terrorist Abbas was one of the guests of honor.  Europe does not regard the Muslim killing of Jews as terror.  The march organizers had asked the Israeli PM not to attend because his presence would make them uncomfortable -  although the Muslim terror spree in Paris included the murder of several Jews at a Kosher deli.  The march was not about the murdered Jews, but about the "Charlie Hebdo" cartoonists massacred by Muslims.
To Germany Israeli lives don't seem to matter

Youngest victim in the Fogel
family massacre - Throat slashed. 
Muslim murderer said he was
 "proud" of what he did
Germany’s State TV reported about the massacre in Israel of the Fogel family (parents and three small children) by Muslim Arabs, who slashed their throat and stabbed their heart - by writing: “Five dead after attack on settler family”.
("Settler" is a pejorative enemies of Israel use instead of  "sub-human".  -  BUT HOW can Jews be "settlers" when they have a history of thousands of years on that same land?)  
The Basf chemical industry, which now is dribbling at the thought of returning to Teheran, was formed out of the assets of IG Farben in 1952, the same company that produced the pesticide Zyklon B for the gas chambers.

French FM Fabius with
Iranian FM - Let's trade
France also eager to trade with Iran. 70 to 80 top executives of France’s largest companies also visited Iran in September.  Peugeot, France’s premier car company, will build cars with the Iranian auto company Khodro and transfer French technology. Can we resume the French past of traitorous Vichy for them? 
During those very same days of trade talks success, Iran’s Khamenei proclaimed that Israel “won’t exist in 25 years” (and Iranian leaders have repeatedly threatened to wipe Israel off the map).
Rabbi Eitam Henkin and Naama Henkin
for being Jews
Europe trades with Iran - Iran funds terror in IsraelA Hamas terror cell  recently killed Rabbi Eitan Henkins and his wife Naama near Itamar (in front of their four young children, who may not have been seen by the Muslim terrorists in their rush to escape).
Israeli intelligence declared that Iran has been sending suitcases full of money over the past two months to the military wing of Hamas in Israel.
Continue reading, including an in-depth article on how and why Europe is rushing to trade with Iran, a country advocating the genocide of Jews in Israel, and an article debunking the myth of Israeli occupation.  Also see links to the dark NAZI past of current German industries, when they profited from slave labor, and how Germany sold poison gas to Syria's Assad for use against its enemies, one of them being Israel.

A nuclear arms race, and more funding for terror - The Iran nuclear deal will trigger a major war in the Middle East and it is already triggering the Third Intifada. Twenty-one Israeli Jews have been killed in terror attacks in the last year, the most important period of negotiations between Iran and the Western powers. 
Europeans are making money in Iran, while the Iranians used that money to finance the slaughtering of Jews in Eretz Israel. Hitler also was a bonanza for the German industrialists. Shame on this moribund Europe.

    IRAN boosts shipments of weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon and Syria, and to Palestinians in Israel in anticipation of the lifting of sanctions
    On Monday, Israeli officials reported that Iran has upped its delivery of weapons to the Lebanese Shiite terror group Hezbollah in the past few weeks. Channel 2 stated that the shipments have been made to both Lebanon and the Syrian side of the Golan Heights.
    Lebanese media reported in September 2013 that Hezbollah wanted to use Syria as a base for attacks against Israel. In January 2014, General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, the head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard’s aerospace division, boasted that Hezbollah could pinpoint targets anywhere in Israel.

    THE FARHUD, the 1941 massacre
     of Iraqi Jews by Arab Nazis
    THE GRUESOME MASSACRES PERPETRATED BY MUSLIMS AGAINST JEWS BEFORE Israel's independence, and before there was talk of "occupation"  - ISIS cruelty reflects what Islam is really like when unleashed against those they hate.
    At about 3:00 p.m. that June 1, Regent ‘Abd al-Ilah had landed at the airport near Baghdad. He was making his way across al-Khurr Bridge to the Palace when a contingent of Baghdadi Jews went out to greet him.
    As the group came to the bridge, they encountered a contingent of dejected soldiers just returning from their dismal surrender to British forces. The mere sight of these Jews, bedecked in festive holiday garb, was enough to enrage the soldiers.
    Suddenly, the Jews were viciously attacked with knives and axes. Several were hacked to death right then and there on the bridge. The planned systematic extermination, now foiled, broke down into a spontaneous citywide slaughter.
    Baghdad became a fast-moving hell. Frenzied mobs raced throughout the city and murdered Jews openly on the streets.
    Women were raped as their horrified families looked on. Infants were killed in front of their parents.
    Home and stores were emptied and then burned. Gunshots and screams electrified the city for hours upon hours.
    Beheadings, torsos sliced open, babies dismembered, horrid tortures, and mutilations were widespread. Severed limbs were waved here and there as hideous trophies.
    As Baghdad burned, Jewish existence became smoke spires against the sky. Jewish shops and homes were looted and then torched. A synagogue was invaded and its Torahs burned in classic Nazi fashion.
    Yet British troops remained minutes away, under orders from London not to move in lest it stir Arab sentiment against the oil infrastructure.
    The streets were not safe for Jews. Their homes, already well-marked as Jewish residences, were even less safe. Gangs comprised of soldiers, police, and civilian looters invaded Jewish neighborhoods with impunity.
    In home after home, furniture was moved up against the door to create a barricade. As the invaders pushed at the doors, more and heavier furniture was shoved into place. The ceaseless battering and kicks eventually made progress, and inevitably, in house after house, the killers broke in. As the Arabs breached the entrances, many families would escape to the roof, one step ahead.
    Fleeing Jews jumped from one roof to another. In some instances, parents and siblings threw children down from roofs to waiting blankets below. When there was no place beyond the roof, some Jews held off their attackers with boiling oil, stones, and whatever other makeshift defenses they could muster.
    Women were defiled everywhere. Arabs broke into the girl’s school and the students were raped — endlessly. Six Jewish girls were carted away to a village fifteen kilometers north and located only later.
    One young girl was raped, and then her breasts slashed off — an all too typical crime that day.
    Young or old, Jewish females were set upon and mercilessly gang raped and often mutilated.

    The Itamar massacre of the Fogel family

    Fogel FamilyThree Year Old Stabbed in the Heart, Baby's Throat Slashed

    News archive
    Gruesome images censored by the media
    because they might damage the Palestinian cause
    When caught, the perpetrator said he was proud of what he did



    Israel and the Occupation Myth
    The hatred and violence that killed five members of the Fogel family existed before the Jewish state did. 
    Giving Arabs another state won't bring peace to the region, and will only precipitate more massacres of Jews and the dismantlement of Israel

    In the aftermath of the 2011 massacre of the Fogel family, the then foreign minister of Israel Danny Ayalon wrote the following column on the Wall Street Journal:

    The recent murder of a family of five in Itamar shocked Israelis to their core. A terrorist broke into the Fogels' home before stabbing and garroting to death the two parents, Udi and Ruth, and their children Yoav, 11 years old, Elad, 4, and almost decapitating Hadas, who was only three months old.
    There has since been very little outcry from the international community. Many nations who are so used to condemning the building of apartment units beyond the Green Line remained silent on this sadistic murder. Meanwhile, the few international correspondents to have covered the massacre have placed it in the context of ongoing settlement-building and Israel's so-called "occupation."
    However, regardless of one's views on which people have greater title to Judea and Samaria, or the West Bank, it is a historically inaccurate distortion to claim that the occupation that breeds this type of violence. If this mantra were true, then it must be the case that before the occupation there was no violence. This defies the historical record.
    The 1929 massacre of Jews in Hebron - long before there was an independent Israel or any talk of "occupation"
    In 1929, the Jewish community of Hebron—which stretches back millennia, long before the creation of Islam and the Arab conquest and subsequent occupation of the area—was brutally attacked.
    The Jews were set upon in a bloody rampage inspired by Palestinian Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini, who later became notorious as Hitler's genocidal acolyte during the Holocaust.
    In two days, 67 Jews were hacked or bludgeoned to death. Jewish infants were beheaded and Jewish women were disemboweled. Limbs were hacked off the dead as well as those who managed to survive.
    On visiting the scene shortly after the massacre, Britain's High Commissioner for Palestine John Chancellor wrote to his son "I do not think that history records many worse horrors in the last few hundred years."
    This and other similar pogroms happened, not only before the "occupation" of Judea and Samaria, but even two decades before the state of Israel was reestablished.
    From 1948 to 1967, Judea and Samaria were illegally occupied by Jordan, which renamed the area the West Bank, in reference to the East Bank of the Kingdom of Jordan that fell beyond the Jordan River. Not one Israeli was allowed into this area, yet nor did Israel know one day of peace in that time, during which it saw brutal attacks launched from the West Bank against Israeli civilians.
    Further evidence against the mantra that the occupation breeds violence can be culled from Palestinian sources.
    In their own words
    Take Hamas's founding charter, for instance, which does not mention occupation or settlements. What is does contain are calls for the complete destruction of Israel, down to its last inch, such as: "Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it."
    The charter goes even further, aspiring to a point in time when there will be no Jews left anywhere in the world.
    Meanwhile, the Palestine Liberation Organization, currently headed by President Mahmoud Abbas, notes in its founding charter that "this organization does not exercise any regional sovereignty over the West Bank," while still calling for a "liberation of its homeland." This was written in 1964, fully three years before Israel conquered the West Bank during the Six Day War.
    It's safe to say that the violence and terror visited upon Israelis has little connection to "occupation" or settlements. This myth has no historical foundation, but is easy to proclaim for those who have little understanding of the conflict.
    Yet these fatuous canards only make our conflict harder to solve. The recent massacre in Itamar highlighted the Palestinian Authority's ongoing incitement to violence through its media, mosques and educational system.
    At this point, the basic parameters of the peace process need an overhaul. If our aim is to reach a peaceful resolution, then merely ending the "occupation" would far from guarantee that, as history has shown.
    Israel was assured in the past by the international community that if it just retreated from Gaza and Lebanon, peace would flourish and violence would come to an end. In both cases, this hope proved deadly wrong, and millions of Israelis have been subjected to incessant attacks from these territories since the retreat.
    This is not about "occupation" or territory; it is about meaningful coexistence. Only when the root ideological causes of our conflict are solved can Israelis and Palestinians make the painful concessions necessary for peace. 



    Muslim massacres against Jews in pre-State of Israel

    READ MORE on the recurrent Muslim massacres of Jews since 1929.  The State of Israel did not obtain its independence until 1948.  The defensive War of 1967, when Arab states ganged up on Israel, allowed the Jews to liberate their ancient Biblical heartland of Judea and Samaria, now called by Israel's enemies "West Bank". 
    There is no West Bank in ancient Middle East history.  There is Israel and then "Palestine," the name the Romans gave to the Jewish land they tried to erase from history.
    Muslims only conquered this land in the 7th century.  They are the real occupiers.
    Muslim rioters at Temple Mount, Jerusalem, in 1929.  There was no state of Israel then.  They are still rioting today.  They want no Jews at all in the Land of Israel.  They hate Jews following dictates of their sacred books, the Koran and Hadith.
     Meanwhile the world supports them and finances them.
    Read the timeline of decades of Muslim terror against Jews in the Land of Israel.


    Europeans Rush to Profit from Iran Deal

    • Middle East expert Ilan Berman points out that for Iran, trading with Europe is actually the perfect self-defense, a virtual guarantee that it will not face military attack if it cheats on its obligations under the nuclear deal.
    • Sanctions will also be lifted on Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei's $95 billion business empire, as well as on Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, which operates a vast network of companies and industries. No wonder European media outlets are referring to Iran as the "new El Dorado," the "chance of a century," and the "last untapped market."
    • "Conducting business with the Iranian regime means to finance the nuclear program, the annihilation threats against Israel, Holocaust denial, the export of Islamist terror and the oppression of the Iranian population." — Stop the Bomb, Austria.
    • "Everyone is looking at Iran with greed." — Senior French official.

    European politicians and business leaders, resembling the running of the bulls in Spain, are falling over themselves in a rush to secure the "first-mover" advantage in Iran's $400 billion economy.
    Under the nuclear deal reached in Vienna on July 14, international sanctions will be removed on Iran's banking, energy and trade sectors if Tehran agrees to certain curbs on its nuclear program.
    The lifting of sanctions on Iran, a market of 80 million consumers (the second-largest market in the Middle East after Turkey in terms of GDP) creates the potential for staggering business opportunities.
    Iranian officials say that investments of $185 billion are required in the oil and gas sector alone during the next five years.
    The mining sector requires $29 billion between now and 2025. Iran hopes to triple the number of cars manufactured in the country to three million a year by 2025.
    Sanctions will also be lifted on Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei's $95 billion business empire, as well as on Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, which operates a vast network of companies and industries.
    No wonder that European media outlets are referring to Iran as the "new El Dorado," the "chance of a century," and the "last untapped market."
    In an essay for Politico Europe, Middle East expert Ilan Berman pointed out that for Tehran, trading with Europe is actually the perfect self-defense, a virtual guarantee that it will not face military attack if it cheats on its obligations under the nuclear deal.
    "The end result is a situation in which Europe's growing political and economic stake in the Islamic Republic virtually guarantees that Iran won't return to its old status as an international pariah, whether or not it ends up abiding by the terms of the JCPOA," Berman wrote. "The lesson, it seems, is that trading with Europe means never having to say you're sorry."
    Following is a brief country-by-country round-up of key European trade delegations seeking to open business opportunities with Iran.
    Germany. German Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel was the first senior European official to visit Iran after the signing of the Vienna agreement. On July 19, Gabriel, who also serves as Economy Minister, led a delegation of high-ranking German business leaders to Iran to build bilateral trade relations. He said there was "great interest on the part of German industry in normalizing and strengthening economic relations with Iran."
    The German Federation of Industries (Bundesverband der Deutschen Industrie, BDI) believes exports to Iran could rise to more than 10 billion euros ($10.9 billion) within three to four years, up from 2.4 billion euros in 2014.
    Gabriel insisted that Iran must improve relations with Israel if it wants closer economic ties with Germany. "For Germany this much is clear: Anyone who wants sustainable relations with us cannot question Israel's right to exist," Gabriel said.
    But Iranian officials flatly rejected Gabriel's plea. "We have totally different views from Germany on certain regional issues in the Middle East, and we have explicitly expressed our viewpoints in different negotiations," a foreign ministry spokesperson said.
    France. Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius was the second senior European official to visit Iran after the nuclear deal was signed. Arriving in Tehran on July 29, Fabius proclaimed: "We are two great independent countries, two great civilizations. It is true that in recent years, for reasons that everyone knows, links have loosened, but now thanks to the nuclear deal, things are going to change."
    Imports from Iran to France fell to just 62 million euros in 2013 from 1.77 billion in 2011. French exports to Iran in 2013 fell to 494 million euros from 1.66 billion euros in 2011, according to French foreign ministry estimates.
    Fabius, who denied accusations that France's primary motivation in signing the Iran deal was to create business opportunities for French companies, also conveyed an invitation from French President François Hollande to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to visit France in November.
    The AIDS tainted blood scandal - Fabius' visit was marred by Iranian hardliners, who blame him for the spread of AIDS in the country. Some 300 Iranians were infected with tainted blood supplies that were exported to Iran in the mid-1980s, when Fabius was the Socialist prime minister, and when France's national blood transfusion center knowingly distributed HIV-contaminated blood products. Fabius was charged with manslaughter in 1999 but was later acquitted. Iranian protesters greeted Fabius with flyers depicting him with blood on his hands and the pledge: "We will not forgive or forget."
    Representatives from France's largest employer federation, MEDEF, are due to visit Iran on September 27-29 to explore investment opportunities and re-establish commercial ties.
    In February 2014, more than 100 French business leaders — with representatives from companies including Airbus, Alstom, Citroën, GDF Suez, Lafarge, Peugeot, Renault and Total — visited Iran "in an exploratory capacity." It was the largest of trade delegation of its kind from Europe since Iran signed an interim agreement in November 2013 promising to limit its nuclear program.
    At the time, French Finance Minister Pierre Moscovici said the visit was intended to "convey the message that, if the situation improves, there will be significant commercial opportunities for France in Iran."
