State Department and Establishment Media Silent on Israel’s 200 Nukes

israel-flagBy Kurt Nimmo, Blacklisted News

Not only has the State Department ignored Colin Powell’s revelation Israel has two hundred nukes, so has the establishment media.

After DCLeaks posted a tranche of Powell emails hacked from the former secretary of state’s personal Gmail account, RT’s Caleb Maupin asked the State Department for comment on Powell’s mention of Israel’s nukes. He was ignored.

Meanwhile, the story has been virtually ignored by the media. The Sun in Britain reported on it, as did The Times of Israel and Haaretz in Israel, but The New York Times and The Washington Post have remained silent.

The March 3, 2015, email to Powell business associate and Democrat donor Jeffrey Leads also questions if North Korea is, in fact, testing nuclear weapons.

Anyway, Iranians can’t use one if they finally make one. The boys in Tehran know Israel has 200, all targeted on Tehran, and we have thousands. As [Iranian President Mahmoudin Ahmedinejad said], ‘What would we do with one, polish it?’ I have spoken publicly about both [North Korea] and Iran. We’ll blow up the only thing they care about—regime survival. Where, how would they even test one?

The release of the email followed a March visit to the United States by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He addressed a joint session of Congress on the supposed nuclear threat posed by Iran. Netanyahu was invited to speak by Republicans who did not consult with the White House.

“Let me be frank. The speech by Netanyahu was the speech of a demagogue. And from the outset he spoke of Persians attacking Jews millennia ago. This is a sort of a religious fanaticism that is a parallel with the religious fanaticism of Islamic fundamentalists who engage in terrorism. In fact Israel has bombed many neighbors in the Middle East,” Norman Solomon, the Director of the Institute for Public Accuracy, told RT on March 4.

Not only has Israel bombed its neighbors, it has also used its nuclear arsenal to blackmail the United States.

In 1991 the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh published The Samson Option: Israel’s Nuclear Arsenal an American Foreign Policy. The book reveals how a nuclear warhead was developed in an underground facility in the Negev Desert in the 1960s with technology acquired from France. During the Yom Kippur War in 1973, Israel blackmailed Henry Kissinger and Richard Nixon. It threatened to use a nuclear weapon against Egypt and Syria during the war if the United States did not ship ammunition and spare parts.

“It was nuclear blackmail, but it worked,” writes Daniel Goldstein. “President Richard Nixon was enraged by the Israeli atomic ultimatum, and at Secretary of State Henry Kissinger’s strategy, described by then–U.S. Defense Secretary James Schlesinger as allowing Israel to come out ahead but making sure it bled. ‘By the evening of October 9th,’ Kissinger wrote in his memoir, ‘Israel had been assured [by the U.S.] that its war losses would be made up. Relying on this assurance, it stepped up its consumption of war materiel,’ as dozens of U.S. C-5 and C-141 cargo planes began roaring into Tel Aviv’s airport with replacement tanks, missiles and spares.”

Israel has routinely betrayed the United States. The Department of Homeland Security, the State Department, the FBI and the National Counterintelligence Directorate held classified briefings that revealed “Israel spies on the United States more than any other ally does and these activities have reached an alarming level…The main targets are US industrial and technical secrets.”

In 1967 Israel attacked the USS Liberty in international waters with aircraft and torpedo boats, killing 34 sailors and wounding 171. “Instead of determining whether the attack was deliberate, the Navy blocked all testimony about Israeli actions,” writes James M. Ennes Jr. Congress has all but ignored demands the attack be investigated and the Israelis punished.

A few days prior to the report on Powell’s email, the United States and Israel reached an agreement on a record new package of at least $38 billion in US military aid. Congress is expected to sign the deal within days.

“The deal will represent the biggest pledge of U.S. military assistance ever made to any country but also includes major concessions granted by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to officials on both sides,” reports Reuters.

    Underse Nuclear bombing by ISra*L/NA*O most stealthy Diego-Garcia-based Nuclear Submarines are among the most evil chemical weapon to carry out Depopulation agenda, whilst conquering the Pacific/Indian Ocean billions worth of ultra–deep sea oil/gas and their oil/gas-Submarine chokepoints and maritime routes, all the way to/from ISrael/West (but don’t expect their SK ally in the ZioNazi-controlled UNat., ki moong nor the Nuclear agency to do anything)!

    Such as through undersea-mini Nuclear bombing that were suspected to have caused earthquake or Tsunami in Indigenous Malay Muslim-dominated Northern Malaysia, Southern Thailand and Sumatera (especially Acheh) of Indonesia; and the sabotage of Fukushima Nuclear reactor (with the suspected help of their Japa*ese regime ally, in order to cause the most recent extreme radioactive-like hot weather phenomena across the Pacific Ocean-Indian Ocean nations, labelled as El-Nino).

  2. Ironic that Powell is revealing a detail that would seem to be a dig at Israel given he has many powerful Zionist neocon supporters and admirers. Powell appears to a “leaker” in the same category as as General Wesley Clark, another globalist minion. Both spinning out leaks designed to misdirect, distract, and keep the public endlessly bickering. For instance Powell brings up the birther issue saying 99% of the public believes it is based on racism and he says he is fine with Soros’ Black Lives Matter. In the 1996 book “Powell and The Power Elite” the author points out Powell describes himself as a “ROCKEFELLER REPUBLICAN”. Which fits with his rise to political prominence having been embraced by globalist neocon RINOs while he rejected the pro-national sovereignty stance of conservatives such as Pat Buchanan. Not surprisingly, Powell is very pro-UN. Last month an instructor from the Colin Powell School for Civic and Global Leadership received a top UN fellowship reflecting Powell’s deep ties to the UN.

    Thank goodness the Alt Right is finally breaking through the barrier and criticizing the Zionist Power Configuration, which Donald Trump is giving voice to. Trump is using Sun Tsu’s tactics, not going up against them directly but from dismantling the house of cards one at a time.

    • You underestimate Donald Trump. Only a fool or a racist would agree with you. He’s too smart for that because he knows the situation better than you ever will.

    The Donald will …’fix it and fix it fast…’
    Make America great again.

  5. GOOD! It’s time to talk about Pakistan, India, China, Russia and the US.

  6. You do know who else hates Israel? We’ll go easy on your ignorant brain, and start easy. Remember Hitler, or does your stupid brain not understand history? Ok, let’s go with who I think your in bed with…satan himself. You enjoy your F.U. life!
    Israel and God are one in the same, so if you hate one, you hate the other. Get that through your thick, ignorant, head, satan lover!!

  7. Kurt Neemo, why don’t you study more about who did some of these awful things, besides the crap you read, saying that these incidents were done by Israel? More like they had no clue, or just hated Israel and decided to print stuff that wasn’t true, for all other Israel haters to grab on too, and run with? The pitiful evidence you give, is slack, at best.
    Haven’t you heard of false flags, where governments blow up one of their own ships, or a building of their own, kill a bunch of their own people in the process, and then blame it on another country or their leader? It was done by Hitler, and done by the leaders of this country, and other countries. It’s a HUGE part of the past and present, and more than likely, the future’s history. You definitely need to study up on it, and if you had, your article would, more than likely…..never have been written!

    • Kurt knows all about false flag operations as he’s written about them in the past. The evidence is overwhelming that it was Israel that attacked the USS Liberty. It may not be the answer you want to hear, but it was Israel. Israel later even apologised for the attack.

    • Criticism of Israel doesn’t mean hatred of Israel. Just like criticism of a Monet painting isn’t hatred of the Monet painting – it’s just a criticism. People like myself are not going to be bullied into shutting up about crimes going on around the world. The UK is selling arms to Saudi Arabia which is using these arms to kill Yemenis. This is not hatred of the UK. It is a criticism of the UK Government for selling arms to Saudi Arabia which is using these arms to kill Yemenis. Got it? Or do I have to explain things like one does to a child?

  8. I suspect that Kurt Nimmo is a ‘former lead editor’ because he produced stuff like this.

    Israel lives under the threat of annihilation. They need the nukes more than America does. And, because their core cultural principle is ‘to save a life’, those nukes are in safe hands. I am currently in East Asia, but I worked in Israel for 15 years, so I can tell you that Israel’s dedication to saving and preserving lives – even the lives of their enemies – is true.


    As for that USS Liberty thing, here’s what I wrote, not that long ago:

    Israel Tricked – The Attack On The USS Liberty

    When hostilities began, Israel contacted the United
    Nations and communicated to the world that Israel had created a naval
    exclusion zone.
    Any ships found in that ‘exclusion zone’ would be sunk.

    It was supremely foolish of the US Navy to send the USS Liberty into
    the naval exclusion zone. The problem is that there appears to be
    evidence that it was deliberate.

    By Lyndon Baines Johnson, President of the United States.

    When the USS Liberty was attacked, the President of the United States said to the Secretary of Defense McNamara:

    “I want that goddamn ship going to the bottom.”

    This was clearly a false flag setup, by the President of the United
    States of America to get an okay for an invasion of the Middle East.

    But, Israel wasn’t a firm ally of the United States, so there was no
    way that the United States would have trusted Israel to participate in a
    ‘false flag attack’ on one of its own ships. But, there was one way
    that Israel could have been trusted to follow through:

    Giving false intelligence

    Knowing that Israel had set a naval exclusion zone for the coast of
    Israel and the Sinai, I believe that the United States sent the USS
    Liberty towards/into that zone, while telling the Israelis that it was

    And please, don’t tell me that there was an American Flag. The
    Israelis would have known that Egypt had a large supply of ‘American
    Flags’. There is no way that the Israelis would have trusted such an
    appearance, especially if the Americans were telling them that there
    were no American ships in the area.

    Was Israel tricked into attacking an American ship?

    I believe that they were, especially since Israel
    could have received no benefit from knowingly attacking an American
    ship. Nor would the Israelis have trusted America to fulfill any
    promises made by the American administration, in setting up a false
    flag. America had not been very friendly up to that point.

    Israelis have always had a profound love for the United States. For
    them to knowingly attack the US would have been… unimaginable. There is
    just no way that Israel would have done that.

    So, those that wish to attack Israel over the USS Liberty need to
    turn their anger on LBJ. After all, President Johnson was accessory to
    the murder of JFK. Tricking the Israelis to attacking the USS Liberty
    would have been child’s play, by comparison.


    Don’t let the lying liars lie to you.
