'To avoid restating the obvious, or repeating what others have already established, I take these facts as givens: that the main perpetrator of the assassination of Iranian scientists has been the Israeli spy agency Mossad, assisted by various covert operations agencies of the United States and its allies; that the claim of Iran’s possessing or pursuing a nuclear arms program is false; and that, therefore, the assertion that Iran poses an “existential” threat to Israel is, likewise, a fiction designed to justify plans of war and regime change in that country.'
'The confluence of Barack Obama 's problem with contraception and Mitt Romney's candidacy reminds me of that often expressed sentiment that the United States is a “religion soaked” country. It leads western democracies—including Israel—for the incidence of people who express a belief in God and pray on a regular basis. The existence of the Mormon faith is part of the larger picture. It is arguably the most successful of the new religions created in the United States during the 19th century, along with Christian Science, Jehovah's Witnesses, Seventh Day Adventists, and the now defunct Shakers.'
