Israeli secret agents engineered Newtown massacre, says prof from public university
Mossad death squads are responsible for the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, a professor emeritus at the University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) alleged in an op-ed in an official Iranian state news outlet late last month.
Dr. James H. Fetzer wrote that members of Israel’s feared security force known the Mossad had conducted the shooting to “strike fear in the hearts of Americans.”
“The killing of children is a signature of terror ops conducted by agents of Israel,” he wrote. “[W]ho better to slaughter American children than Israelis, who deliberately murder Palestinian children?”
Fetzer, who recently retired but still maintains a website, email, and an honorary title with the university, went on to claim the massacre was part of a greater U.S. Government plot to wage violent war against Americans.
“When [the Department of Homeland Security] DHS is gearing up to conduct a massive civil war against the American people, what better excuse could there be for banning assault weapons than the massacre of 20 innocent children at Sandy Hook Elementary School?” he wondered.
The article appeared on Press TV’s website. The news organization is funded by Iran’s state run media empire, Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a vocal proponent of the news agency. When Press TV launched in 2007, he reportedly told staff that “broadcasting the truth immediately, providing precise analysis and exposing the plots of propaganda networks of the enemy is among your duties.”
Fetzer is a frequent contributor to the state-owned Iranian news network.
Early last year he wrote a story in which he called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu the “Chicken Little of the Middle East.” In an extensive interview with the network he skewered U.S. foreign policy towards the Islamic Republic.
UMD did not make a spokesperson available to Campus Reform despite multiple requests.
