Israelis have always been trying to present themselves as �œthe victim” but they truth is that they have always been �œthe aggressor and oppressor,” says a researcher from London.
�œFrom the moment of Israel�™s creation,” said Alan Hart, �œZionism�™s guiding strategy has been to present and have Israel perceived in the Western world as the victim, when it was and is the aggressor and oppressor.”
Israeli leaders �œrealized that they needed a new enemy if they were to maintain the fiction that Israel was the victim, and that brings us to Iran,” Hart said Wednesday in a phone interview with Press TV.
Irked by Iran�™s recently-sealed nuclear deal with the Sextet of world powers, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) has called on US Congress to push for fresh sanctions against the Islamic Republic.
Iran and the six major world powers — the US, Britain, Russia, China, France and Germany — inked an interim deal in Geneva, Switzerland, on November 24 to pave the way for the full resolution of the West�™s decade-old dispute with Tehran over its nuclear energy program.
The interim nuclear deal between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany also infuriated Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who called it �œa historic blunder.”
�œIran had to be the new enemy” that Israel needed to preserve the �œvictim” image it has been trying to depict for years in the world, Hart added.
Historically, he continued, Zionism�™s calculation was that �œas long as Israel was perceived in the Western world as the victim, it could do what it liked to impose its will on the Palestinians in the whole region.”
