Mashregh News, which is close to Iran’s security and intelligence organizations, reported that Israel is secretly promoting Krav Maga in Europe and North America for “unknown purposes.”
According to Mashregh, Israel has previously kept the existence of Krav Maga, which the site described as a dangerous martial art of “Zionist Jewish origin,” under wraps.
“Why, after nearly a century of [Krav Maga] being kept quiet and limited to the boundaries of this regime, it is suddenly being promoted, is a question that has drawn the attention of experts,” it said.
The news site claimed that Krav Maga is the dominant sport in Israel, and is taught to the military, police, Mossad, and Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency).
“Jewish settlers in the occupied territories” are also given serious training in Krav Maga, it reported, adding that the martial art is designed to cause maximum damage and cripple an opponent, lacking “tolerance and compassion.”
Krav Maga is also practiced by “women Zionists,” and is used in war and against “resistance groups,” the latter being a reference to Palestinians, it said.
Apparently, it has only come to light since Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's interest in Krav Maga.
That same new site promotes other wacky conspiracy theories.
The news site regularly features articles accusing Israel and Hollywood of various covert plans for world domination. In 2012, it wrote that the two were working together to promote homosexuality as part of a global scheme to subjugate humankind in a plot based in Tel Aviv, which Mashregh described as the “gay capital of the world.”
Now wait for all the local, western, anti-Israel conspiracy theorists to jump on that bandwagon.
