Yet Another Israel Hating Huffington Post Blogger

Russia Today (aka Moscow's propaganda outlet) has carried an article declaring that the recent bombing to death of five Israelis in Bulgaria is actually a false flag committed by Israel's own government. It takes the form of an interview with Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich. So why don't we check out some of the things she has to say:

"But if one would assume for a moment that Israel would never kill its own by carrying out a false flag operation as such, you only have to go back to the 1976 Entebbe rescue mission. In 2007 I believe, the UK revealed some files from its archives, secret files which actually claimed that Israel was behind the hostage crisis in Entebbe, Uganda."
"I can’t say for certainty that Israel was behind this or that this was a false flag attack, but I only look at who gains by this operation judging from their past behavior. And to me it does not make sense that Iran would want to carry out this operation."
"Iran is not a very attractive country to the world, and the masses are very happy to accept whatever they are told. Like they are told by Mr. Netanyahu, who has stolen from America, who was in this nuclear smuggling ring in the 80s and 90s, and FBI files show that. If they chose to believe him and believe his pointing-finger at Iran, well that shows their naivety."
So yeah...cuckoo, cuckoo. And by the way, Ms. Sepahpour is a Huffington Post blogger, or at least she used to be, she hasn't written anything since 2010. And if you were wondering what her background is, take a read:
"Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich has a Master's in Public Diplomacy from USC Annenberg for Communication. She is an independent researcher and writer with regular contributions to various online blogs. Soraya is a public speaker and political commentator."
Well apparently if you love Iran and hate Israel both Russia Today and the Huffington Post will be glad to have you. Of course, her views fit right in in both of those places.

  1. Entebbe rescue mission? The bbc is only one i noticed who wrote of such an absurd possibility of collusion by Shin bet and PFLP. Source: "DH Colvin of the Paris Embassy writes of his Euro-Arab Parliamentary Association source; No names disclosed in article. Evidence: None. Rational given: "The operation was designed to torpedo the PLO's standing in France and to prevent what they see as a growing rapprochement between the PLO and the Americans." Follow up of evidence; NONE. Accusation by Soraya: False.

    Is she biased when it comes to Iran? : Hmm; She runs a blog called; Campaign Against Sanctions and Military Intervention in Iran. She's even interviewed Pres. Ahmadinejad, who she i would assume adores. After all he is a holocaust denier who want's to destroy Israel.

    The nuclear smuggling ring accusation was covered by antiwar recently on July 04, 2012 and mondoweiss 2 day's later. It refers to project called Project Pinto. Apparently Richard Kelly Smyth — who was convicted of running a U.S. front company — met with Benjamin Netanyahu in Israel during the smuggling operation. At that time, Netanyahu worked at the Israeli node of the smuggling network, Heli Trading Company. Since Symth is under a gag order, ordered by Netanyahu apparently, there is no public information to prove or disprove what exact involvement Netanyahu had.


Hey guys we've started to employ a slight comment policy. We used to have completely open comments but then people abused it. So our comment policy is such: No obvious trolling or spamming. And be warned: unlike the Huffington Post we actually enforce our comment policy.
