BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:20 P.M.) – U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told the crowd at the annual dinner for the Jewish Institute for National Security of America (JINSA) that the entire Middle East should look like Israel, while also criticizing the Obama administration.

Pompeo argued that Israel “is democratic and prosperous, it desires peace, it is a home to a free press and a thriving economy,” calling it “everything we want the entire Middle East to look like going forward.”

Israel’s enemy number one Iran, meanwhile, has “corrupt leaders” who “assault the human rights of their own people and finance terrorism in every corner of the Middle East,” according to Pompeo.

He went on to habitually bash the Obama administration for trying to solve problems with Iran peacefully.

“President Obama thought that if he made dangerous concessions, removed economic sanctions and flew a plane full of cash to Tehran, he could somehow hug Iran’s leaders into behaving well… but those leaders aren’t from a Disney movie,” Pompeo said, then himself went on to paint Iranian leaders as movie villains: “They’re real. They are murderers and funders of terrorism who lead chants today, still, of ‘Death to America’.”

Pompeo has long been a critic of the Iran Deal under the Obama administration, often backing President Trump’s rhetoric on the agreement.

So funny. First, he says “We want peace”, then he criticize Obama’s peace agreement with Iran. We all know why Obama signed the peace agreement with Iran – because USA and its gang members (ISIS, Al-Kaida, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, UK, France…) were about to success removing Assad and making Syria like Afghanistan. Well, just one year after signing the document, Russia got involved and changed all gang plans. They are mad all about that because after Syria plan was to blame Iran don’t follow the agreement. They even will pull out “prove” Iran is developing nuclear weapon in secret (just… Read more »

Hum, didn’t Zarqawi (ex-Qaeda, founder of ISIS) hid in Iran? Didn’t al-Zawahiri and Hamza bin-Laden hid in Iran too? And wasn’t it Imad Mugniyeh (HELLbollah) who trained Qaeda and ISIS? Hum hum hum… Funny fact : Turkish, Qatari and Iranian regimes are all led by Muslim-Brotherhood cockroaches… Thus, Khamenei must be in the gang too! Huhu! And don’t you know that Jimmy Carter facilitated the overthrowing of the Shah while actually, French FM Poniatowsky proposed to Reza-Shah to liquidate Khomeini while he was in Neuffle-le-Château and… Reza-Shah stupidly refused? So France must be against the US projects, as she was… Read more »

For sure, with Iran and all their proxies constantly repeating the “Death to USA, Death to Israel” mantra and working at it, they surely want peace… The peace of the grave and for all ‘the West’ and all the kâfir on Earth, including Russians 😉

Pompeo is a thief.
Obama ” flew a plane full of cash to Tehran”. That money was stolen by the US.
There was no legal reason why that money was not owned by Iran.

It’s the Shah’s money. Why should an illegitimate dictatorship that came to power through a coup against Iranian democratic revolution should get this?
To fund even more terrorism?

Please download a search engine, and check. There was also something about the Shah’s money, but the money that was unblocked was the Iranian state owned frozen assets in the US and the money in other countries like in Swiss, that was blocked by using the SWIFT system (system used for international payments).

When the Shah abdicated in 1979, the US froze Iran’s money in US banks , in reality almost all in the Chase Manhattan Bank of Rockefeller. For 30 years and more kept the money frozen. In fact the US returned a very small amount of that money plus interest of 40 years to Iran.

I thought it was mostly revenue of the oil-trade.
In February 2012 the US froze all property of the Central Bank of Iran and other Iranian financial institutions, as well as that of the Iranian government, within the United States.

The inverted logic of the neocons doesn’t include that Israel , that ideal democracy , with covert actions destabilizes all countries around it , causes death & destruction , suppresses the inalienable rights of the majority indigenous Palestinians , seeks the dismemberment of its neighbors through sectarianism and the subjugation of the resultant entities to phony puppets telecontrolled by imperialist centers.

Except that “Palestinans” are a FRAUD. 1 century ago, there were barely 15,000 Arabs west of Jordan river, half of them weren’t even born here, e.g. the 5000 Saudis Ottomans imported to build the Haifa-Damascus railroad.
Palestine was never a country, it’s a region and 77% of Palestine is the kingdom of Jordan.
We all know the purpose of the invention of the “Palestinian people” : destroying the state of Israel from the inside and make the oppressors look like victims trough self-inflicted suffering 😉
How amusing you talk about sectarianism since the #1 promoter of it are your Iranian and Qatari masters…

All the fiat money printed by Rothschild & Co out of thin air, dollars , pounds , euros, are not enough to suppress the truth. There were no Jews left in Palestine after 540 AD, after the ethnic cleansing by Emperor Justinian. The Jews were never a majority in what is called since Roman times Palestine. They were a tribe among others. All the coastal cities were not Jewish. Tel Aviv was a Philistean city. It’s ruins are today’s Tell Qasile. The same applies to Ashkalon , Caesarea , Hebron , etc. The ancient Hebrews were intruder desert raiders from… Read more »

You’ve just proven you don’t know what you’re speaking about, we’re not in XIXth century any more. You should also look for facts, e.g. census under the Ottoman Empire. West of Jordan river, around 1800AD, you had a Jewish majority population and only a few hundreds Arabs. In 1867, Mark Twain relates that the ‘Holy Land’ was a total shïthole. In 1918, the total population was ONLY about 100k with 60k in Jerusalem alone : 42k Jews,… Read more »

Daeshbags-Sux, go learn some history. No such thing as “Israel”. Palestinians have lived in Palestine for MORE than 6 THOUSAND years. Longer than the Jews have been even existing. Historians of old times (Herodotus, for example) were mentioning Palestine in their writings. Never mentioned “Israel”. Hmmm I wonder why that is 🤔 you Zio cunts are bad at history and so good at lying. You’re professional liars. You’re lying thieving scum. You have no history or culture, so you have to steal from others. Despicable.

ROFL! Herodotus told about the “Philistines” who were a GREEK PEOPLE from Crete who invaded the Gaza area and got their name from the Hebrew word Paleshet=Invader.
If you’re trying to assimilate Canaanites to Fakestinians, again, you’re wrong!
Hebrews were Canaanites that were deported as slaves into Egypt then returned 400 years later. After a few initial fights, both populations re-merged…

Since moderation is pending : Herodotus wrote about the Philistines who were Greeks, not Arabs, and who were called Paleshet (Invaders) by Hebrews.

The whole Middle East should be just like Syria. The only secular middle eastern democracy, where people of all faiths live in harmony (for centuries now), women have rights (economical, political and social) and minorities are protected by law (unlike in “Israhell”, where only Jews are legally protected and the Christians/Muslims are being spat on and their churches burnt and their mosques sacrileged by the Zio Jews). Syria is the pearl of the Middle East, “Israhell” is the shithole of the Middle East. Thank God the Zionists didn’t manage to destroy the beautiful Syria and turn her into KSA 2.0!… Read more »

You apply the old Gobbels motto, accusing others of your own crimes : the vile shitlamic repulseblik has killed more Iranian in two sets of “purges” than IDF over 70 years. Ali Khamenei alone, when he rose to Supreme Conducator of his fascist regime celebrated it by the murder of 30,000 political prisoners… How hypocrite you are!

Actually, Palestinians are Jordans, Egyptians, Saudis and Syrians, even a few are Yemenis, Iraqis or Libyan. Arafat himself was Egyptian and even served in Egyptian army. 1 century ago, there were barely 15,000 Arabs living west of Jordan river, half not being born there, e.g. 5k were imported from Saudi-Arabia to Haifa just to build the Haifa-Damascus railroad… Guess how you ended with 900k Arabs 30 years later… Humans don’t reproduce as fast as rabbits, ot even as fast as pigs 😉

$3.8bln as military help is 20% of the $19bln military budget but soon to become much less since budget is programmed to rise to $26-27bln… And now consider what US gain : The SkyCeptor AKA David’s Sling ‘Stunner’ interceptor fits into a Patriot battery and despite being more efficient than the latest PAC3 interceptor, costs about $400k instead of $4M per missile… With 16 missiles per launcher, the value of a single load of with PAC-3 worths $64M and there are 1,106 US launchers (OK, older launchers only have 4 missiles).

I thought everybody knew that the Israeli economy thrives at foreign aid and gifts, and would immediately collapse when the aid would stop.

You’re absolutely wrong at it. They’re really doing great. GDP/capita just rose slightly over Japan. Actually, for the $3.8bln USA gives in military help to Israel a year, they end sparing this tenfold in military budgets, just thanks to Rafael, Elbit, IAI and a few others companies. Their economy sky-rockets for a while, thanks to hi-tech and bio-technologies… I can even tell you that in the huge number of people with osteoarthritis, if some are anti-Semitic like you, they won’t stay so for long since now Israelis managed to make cartilages regrow!

I just looked on wikipedia, GDP PPP, numbers of 2017. (3 sources):
Israel- Japan, 36,250 – 42,659, 38,413 – 43,876, 36,200 – 42,700.
Still not bad. I don’t know how much money flows into the country by gifts and foreign aid. Maybe I overestimated it.
It’s a good thing when Israelis and Jews take pride in what they do for the benefit of mankind.

It’s an old habit of many Jews to call every goy that says something they don’t want to hear, an anti-Semite.
It made every goy tremble of fear.
Now it only works with politicians and people in the media, but for most people it only undermines the sympathy and the respect for the accusers.

I wonder how many Israelis Pompeo thinks have died on 9/11. Is it 1, or 3, or 5.
You can find easily the numbers of other nationalities, but no credible numbers about Israelis.
I wonder how Pompeo explains that.
I know a lot about Israels terrorism (200 attacks in Syria, terrorist presidents; David Ben Gurion, Menachim Begin, Yitzhak Shamir) and a lot of war crimes, but what did Iran do?

Imagine Iran’s president visit Cuba saying “We all want North America to be like Cuba” what stormy furry reaction would be from USA. I even don’t want to mention if Iran set up a military base in Cuba how USA will claim they invade them. On the other hand USA can set up chain of bases all around the world just “to keep democracy” and “American (understand Jewish) interest” in tact. They really really think we all are sleepy sheep…

77% of Palestine is Arab-Palestine = Jordan.
23% is Jewish-Palestine = Israel incl. Judea-Samaria the Arab-Leaue renames ‘West Bank’ since 1967 (guess why? Judea with Bethlehem, aaarggh!!! Let’s deny it!). West of Jordan river, there were only 15k Arabs in 1918… By 1948, they were 900k… Most came through illegal entries into the Jewish-Palestine mandate, funded by rich anti-Semites willing to kill the rebirth of Israel as country in the egg.

DNA sequencing has proven that the Arabs in Israel have more rights to call themselves descendants of the Jews in the Roman Empire than the nowadays Jews (maybe with exception of the Levites).
Anyhow, I regard religion as a form of collective psychosis, that can be very dangerous because it is also a collective reality gap, as shown in the Middle East (and in the comments of Daeshbags-Sux).
