When a Middle East conflict starts, generally very few ask questions about why. It has become so commonplace throughout history that it’s just assumed someone did something that offended someone and rockets are now being fired. Was there a bigger strategy in play for the Hamas attacks earlier in the month that prompted massive retaliation by Israel.
Cairo-based journalist Eddie Yeranian joined us on the NOQ Report last week to discuss. It was a challenging interview to set up; all standard forms of communication seemed to be blocked from the source. We were finally able to come together after several hours of trying different methods, and unfortunately it’s an audio-only show. But we got it. Oddly, even the means of communication that brought us together for this interview have since been cut off, so now we’re communicating through non-conventional means. And just in case the Egyptian government is monitoring us (they are), we’re not going to divulge how we’re communicating.
One of Yeranian’s theories is that all of this was a setup for Iran to be able to attack the Dimona Nuclear Reactor in Israel. They have vowed retaliation against the facility ever since April when Israel took down Iran’s biggest nuclear facility. It was a total embarrassment for Tehran as the operation was initiated on National Nuclear Technology Day.
It’s possible that Iran tested the missile defense system surrounding Dimona by having a missile lobbed over from their proxies in Syria last month. It came close to hitting the facility and the air-defense system failed to intercept it. According to Liberty Nation:
Some suggested that Syria launched a Fateh-110, a short-range surface-to-surface ballistic missile developed by Iran. However, the Israeli military later clarified that it was an SA-5 surface-to-air missile, and that an Israeli Patriot missile had intercepted it.
“Due to a surface to air missile entering Israeli territory, air defense systems were activated,” read a statement by the IDF. The Syrian missile had been fired at an Israeli jet that missed the target and continued on into Israel, but was not directed at any ground target, according to Brig.Gen. Hidai Zilberman. The missile exploded above the southern Negev, and air raid sirens sounded in a village near Dimona, home to Israel’s nuclear reactor.
We know a few things to back Yeranian’s theory. First, we know that Iran was supplying weapons to Hamas. In case the Iranians want to deny it, they should probably tell Hamas not to thank them publicly for their support.
Second, we know that the Hamas conflict included attempted attacks on Dimona. According to The Gateway Pundit:
Hamas admitted to firing 15 rockets towards Dimona, Israel the home of the Dimono nuclear plant. Of course, a strike there would be cataclysmic. Check this video of an Israeli reporter on the ground near Dimona.

Iran would do anything short of allowing themselves to get caught red-handed destroying the Dimona Nuclear Reactor. It would do great harm to Israel and be a badge of glory for Tehran. This theory has legs.
YouTube, Spotify, and other Big Tech platforms are taking Freedom First Network down
It’s no secret we speak our minds and bring on guests who do the same. That’s one of the biggest reasons we put together the Freedom First Network in the first place. There are far too many news outlets, including so-called “conservative” media companies, who are so beholden to Big Tech that they temper their perspectives at best and outright coverup the truth at worst. Many, as you all know, will blatantly lie in order to maintain the narrative that supports the radical agenda taking over much of the United States.
We have had our YouTube channel taken down. Many of our shows have been suppressed or removed by Facebook and Twitter. Spotify banned one of our shows completely from their platform. Google hates us. We’ve even been censored by some of the smaller players like Medium, Transistor, and Captivate. But we stand behind our reporting and perspectives and we refuse to bow down to Big Tech tyranny for the sake of pageviews or video plays.
This isn’t the easiest road to travel, especially for a media company that is so new. We launched Freedom First Network in 2020 to fight against the very censorship that we’re seeing so widespread today. We have found great homes for our content on freer speech platforms like Rumble and we’re putting our best efforts forward into building our presence on Locals. Nevertheless, we cannot do it alone. We need help.
One of the things cofounders Jeff Dornik and JD Rucker agreed to from the start was to never be the pawns of companies that do not embrace our worldview. Finding advertisers and affiliates is easy; we receive requests by companies wanting to be pushed on our shows every day. But it’s important to us that we’re promoting companies, services, and products that are beneficial to maintaining a Freedom First stance in America. As a result, we do not take on sponsors easily. We would rather rely on our own products like Freedom First Coffee and the support of our wonderful viewers, listeners, and readers.
Those who want to support us and help keep the fight for America’s future moving forward can do so by donating through our Locals page. There, you can donate monthly or one-time. Some have told us to use Patreon or GoFundMe, but both of those platforms have demonstrated a hatred for free speech. Locals does not. They embrace it. We encourage everyone to join us on Locals, but donations are greatly appreciated as well. We do not have day jobs. Our fight for freedom is a full-time gig.
Please feel free to reach out to us through our contact form. It goes directly to our founders, so if you’re interested in getting involved, investing, sponsoring, or even bringing a show to our network, let us know. May God Bless the United States of America!
