Ever Wondered What Phony Iran Expert @MeirJa Says to an Israeli Audience?!

Meir Javedanfar has a long history of pretending to be a Moderate Zionist (whatever that means!) and to care about Iranian people, but his true thoughts are visible when he talks to his Israeli compatriots. He was quoted in a recent article in the New York Times by MARK LANDLER and JODI RUDOREN on September 20, 2013:
But Meir Javedanfar, an Iranian-Israeli lecturer at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya who wrote a book on Iran's nuclear program, said Friday that Rouhani could be promising real change and that a meeting between him and Obama would be positive for Israel.
"As a result of the sanctions, the regime in Iran is under real pressure, and Rouhani comes to save the regime," Javedanfar told Israel Radio. "If Rouhani does the work, this is good for Israel. If the Iranians do the job, our pilots and soldiers don't have to."

This direct quote, which I have boldened, was later removed from the piece in the New York Times without any correction notice. But, thanks to Tikun Olam I received the original format.

It's obvious when Meir Javedanfar talks to an Israeli outlet he has less restrictions and can reveal his true thinking with no equivocation or hypocrisy -- methods that have become a centerpiece of his campaign to show a peaceful face of the Zionist regime to the Iranian people. He is regularly invited to Voice of America and BBC Persian, and issues sympathetic tweets in Farsi for his Iranian followers: congratulating the release of 11 political prisoners in Iran, a deadly bus accident, victories of Iranian football team, etc.

He can tweet any and all corny messages he wants in Farsi to fool Iranians, but, his quote in the New York Times clearly indicates what he considers as the true solution for the Israeli government in regards to Iran's nuclear program: Bombing Iran.
In that regard, Meir Javedanfar is no different than any other  Israeli analyst (or, Hasbara tool) working for the government of Netanyahu. He is a paranoid hawk who never criticizes torturing Palestinians and stealing lands from anywhere possible in the Middle East by any means. Is he the best Israeli propaganda machine can give Iranians? 

What a nice Iranian Meir Javedanfar is!!! #Sarcasm

  1. I have a a slightly different take than you. I think Javedanfar is simply an opportunist. Having grown up in Israel, he knows what will flatter the prejudices of an Israeli audience & delivers accordingly.

    But he also wants to ingratiate himself with the Beltway think tank crowd which is slightly more sophisticated (though not terribly much more so) & thus he changes tack & sounds more moderate.

    But his basic approach is to be deeply hostile to the Iranian government & by extension the Iranian people.

    Not to mention that he's simply ignorant on so many levels. He told a London audience captured on YouTube that Iran was a major sponsor of Hamas terror to the tune of hundreds of millions in subsidies.
