HAVEN'T WE HEARD THIS KIND OF THING BEFORE?
This is an uncorrected transcript of what Cameron said to the committee.
We have to do the right thing for our own national security, and in a way, that is what this comes back to. To take Richard’s question: I do not believe that an Iranian nuclear weapon is just a threat to Israel. It clearly is, because the Iranian regime have said that they want to be part of efforts wipe that country off the map, but it is also clearly very dangerous for the region, because it would trigger a nuclear arms race, and it is a danger more broadly, not least because there are signs that the Iranians want to have some sort of intercontinental missile capability. We have to be clear that this is potentially a threat much more widely, if I can put it that way, than just Israel and the region.
The two points I question in this statement are
1. Iran was talking about removing the Zionist regime, not wiping Israel off the map
2. did this reference to an intercontinental missile come from the top secret meeting just hours before? The Daily Mail article on this meeting states
Mr Cameron’s warning is the first time a British minister has suggested Iran might be able to launch a direct attack on the UK mainland.
He gave no indication of how close British intelligence believes Tehran is to developing the technology.
We have heard all this before, and it is getting boring.
Why don't they just say to us, "Look, you silly dumbed-down human race, we have had this plan to start WW3 over Israel for centuries and we will kill and cheat and lie our arses off to execute it. We caused so much bloodshed in WW1 and WW2, first to get Palestine under our control and then flood Palestine with terrified paranoid Jews after we engineered the Holocaust. We then gave Israel nukes and hundreds of billions in aid and military hardware to give it the confidence to bully and persecute the Palestinians, which has obvioulsy led to the hatred of Israel, and not just in the Islamic world. Meanwhile we gave Iran a nuclear program, to make Israel even more paranoid, and also created and protected all these Islamic terrorist organisations whose stated purpose is to destroy Israel, making Israel even more paranoid. This is why Israel is driving all the trouble in the Middle East. It was created specifically for that purpose. Now get back to your drudgery and be thankful for it."
