In uploading the video Press TV introduced the segment thus:
"A distinguished professor says the Zionists have pressured oil-starved European countries to reject Iran's oil, thereby impacting financial markets around the world."The transcript runs as follows:
"The recent news has already started impacting the market; tell us about the indications of this recent hike in crude prices."Foote:
"The basic facts are that Europe has very tiny amounts of energy resources. They have to import almost everything they need. And Iran has been a good supplier to them.
While the Saudis and some others may have claimed that they will make up the differences, it will take time to change shipments, refineries and get things ready. So, there will be a gap.
And as you noted, prices will increase short term, at least, if not longer."Press TV:
"How will the oil market look like if Iran stops exports to all European countries?"Foote:
"It certainly will be an increase in prices at least for the short term and maybe even longer term. I mean, Europe’s energy needs will not go away anytime soon. They are desperately starving for oil and other resources.
This problem has gone back for any Iranian who’s ever studied Iranian history, they know this story. You had the D’Arcy Concession which led to the creation of BP. Winston Churchill called it a fairyland beyond all belief for the Brits, that they got almost all of Iran’s resources for nearly nothing.
In the early 1950s, British and French ships stopped oil cargo ships from going to and from Iran successfully, and were able to bring down Mosaddegh’s government.
They think they can do it one more time hopefully with countries such as China needing the energy and not being able to be stopped. They won’t be able to make it this time.
In the past they’ve had great success in robbing the Iranian people of their resources at nearly zero prices."Press TV:
"Would you say that it's already apparent that Europe will have more to lose than to gain with these US-pushed sanctions?"Foote:
Absolutely, for an energy poor region of the world, they have no business playing these kinds of energy games just to satisfy the Zionist totalitarians who want to control the entire world." [My emphasis]

First, re Alan Dershowitz's treatment by a Quaker seminary in New York
Second, Harvard and the "one state solution"
There is a Powerpoint in the second article you link to. Take look at page 30. According to the Good Doktor Foote, there's no such thing as "Jews" it's completely made up according to him. Also he's a huge fan of Ron Paul, Pat Buchanan, 'Justin Raimondo', Lew Rockwell and Clays Ryn who, if you read him is a little bit to the right of Cardinal Richelieu.ReplyDelete
Also - Foote's expertise is accounting not political science or history. He's married to an Iranian woman.

Pretty acurate on the history of European exploitation of Iranian resources and the toppling of Mossadegh.The Zionist totalitarian quote is pretty exxagerated - it is the US that tries to control the world and Israel is its regional proxy.ReplyDelete

When Iran launches a nuclear attack on the US (and they will if Israel doesn't stop them) I hope they aim directly at the UC Irvine campus office of this "lover of Iran."
You're one of those wonderful apologists for the Bolshevik Revolution, the bombing of the King David Hotel, the dispossession of 750,000 Palestinians, the Lavon Affair, the attack on the USS Liberty, the Sabra and Shatila massacres, the Pollard and AIPAC spy cases, the murder of Rachel Corrie,Corrie and now the mass murder of Iranians via preemptive nuclear attack and the employment of the Communist MEK terror organization within Iran with an occasional assist from Jundallah and PJAK. Dr. Paul Sheldon Foote's transgression is merely reminding America of the facts surrounding the criminal Zionist enterprise, and the identification of this crowd with the Synagogue of Satan he warned the Churches of Smyrna and Philadelphia about in John's Apocalypse.ReplyDelete
Hey Mark, since you're so smart and with it and all, just why are the 750,000+ Jewish refugees who lost their homes and businesses all over the Arab world circa 1939-1967 no longer refugees while your Palestinian war mongers are still holed up in Syrian camps? Is it because Israel is a racist state? Or is it because Israel actually gives a dang about human beings?Delete
Oh, and that IJ bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut back in 1982 seems to not be on your radar. That's probably because killing the 200 American servicemen was another effort at peace making.
P.S. What AIPAC spy case? As usual, you just spew without thinking. Well, if I was a sorry Jew hating internet troll, I, too, wouldn't have an ounce of honesty and intelligence. With friends like you, no the Palestinians have rejected 4 state offers over the past 12 years!

Paul Sheldon Foote is married to an Iranian woman who is a Roman Catholic, not a Moslem. His brief biography is as follows:ReplyDelete
"Dr. Paul Sheldon Foote is a professor of accounting at Cal State Fullerton, a Vietnam veteran, and acknowledged Middle Eastern expert as a past independent contractor for the American Embassy in Tehran in the 1970s. He is a member of Academics for Ron Paul. Dr. Foote’s web sites include Traitors USA and offerings on You Tube.
"Dr. Foote's acknowledged international expertise on the 'Islamic-Marxist' Mujahedeen-e-Khalq (MEK/MKO)is chronicled through the websites of The Nejat Society, Iran-Interlink, and the Habilian Association."
I would also add one fact. Dr. Paul Sheldon Foote publishes his works under his real name and verified public profile, without utilization of a pseudonym. Having already been vilified by a site called J Hate whose anonymous posts have subsequently been traced to Rabbi Ariel Tuchman of the Research Department of the Anti-Defamation of B'nai Brith in New York, he has become accustomed to being a target of the Hasbara Project. Are you a member, Daphne?
