EXCLUSIVE: Iran in "open war" with Israel

By Elise Labott and Michael Schwartz

Iran is in an "open war" with Israel, President Shimon Peres said Monday, as he pointed the finger at Iran and Hezbollah for last week's bombing in Bulgaria that killed five Israelis.

In an exclusive interview with CNN, Peres said Israel will act to prevent further attacks.

Peres said Israel has "enough" hard intelligence to link the Bulgaria attack to Iran and its proxy Hezbollah, and believes more attacks are being planned as part of what he called an "open war against Israel."

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said that Iran and the Lebanon-based Hezbollah movement were responsible for a number of attacks and attempted attacks against Israeli targets in Thailand, Georgia, India, Greece, Cyprus and other countries.

Asked whether the Bulgaria bombing and the other attempted attacks were revenge for the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientists, which Iran blames on Israel, Peres said that Israel has never claimed responsibility for the killings. But he noted that Israel has a right to prevent the killing of its citizens.

We don't have an initiative of terror," Peres said. "We don't do it. But self-defense is the right and the must of every people."

He said Israel's policy is one of "prevention," rather than "retaliation."

"If you have enough information about a certain person which is a ticking clock that can explode a bomb that can endanger civilian life, clearly you have to prevent him from doing so," Peres said. He cited reports that the United States has killed as many as 3,000 people in drone strikes aimed at terrorist enclaves.

With neighboring Syria in a spiral of violence, Peres said Israel will be forced to seize Syria's chemical weapons if there is a risk President Bashar al-Assad would use them against Israel or that the arsenal could fall into terrorist hands.

RECOMMENDED: U.S. talking to Israel, others about Syria's chemical weapons

Over the weekend, Defense Minister Ehud Barak said he ordered the military to prepare contingency plans to attack Syria's chemical weapons arsenals, should the need arise.

"The use of chemical weapons is internationally forbidden ... and what do you do when somebody violates the law? You fight against it," Peres said. "You stop them. We shall not remain indifferent and tell them, 'Do what you want.'"

Asked how far Israel would go to secure Syria's chemical arsenal, Peres simply said: "Until it will stop being a danger."

The conflict in Syria has already led to nearly 80,000 Syrians fleeing to neighboring Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and Iraq, according to U.N. relief agencies. So far, none have sought refuge in Israel - and Peres said Israel wants to keep control of its borders amid the crisis wracking its longtime foe.

"What will happen if Syrian refugees try to cross the Israeli border? Will you help them?" CNN asked Peres.

"No," he replied.

"Will you shoot them?"

"We will prevent them. I mean, you don't go straight to the rifle. There are other means to prevent them. We should prevent it. Because it will be a double tragedy for them and for us. They will become homeless and we shall become defenseless."

"If the Syrians start to come over the border, will you stop them by force?"

"First of all, until now none of them asked to come in," Peres said. "If they will come by force, we shall stop them by force. If they shall come in without force, we shall stop them the way any country defended her border with civilian means."

When CNN noted that the potential refugees are trying to escape bloodshed in their own country, not invade Israel, Peres said, "If they want to escape, they first of all have to appeal, ask for permission. None of them did it."

With Israel facing a potential influx of refugees, Peres said although no Syrians have tried to enter the country, Israel would not help any refugees who want to cross the border and would use force against any armed individuals.

"If they will come by force, we shall stop them by force," Peres said. "If they shall come in without force, we shall stop them the way any country defended her border with civilian means."

Peres spoke a day after Israel marked the 40th anniversary of the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich, Germany, where 11 Israeli athletes and coaches were killed.

While he wouldn't go into details, Peres said Israel was taking precautions to ensure Israeli athletes would not be targeted at the London Olympic Games, which start later this week. He argued, however, that if Israeli intelligence services been at Munich, they would probably have been able to prevent the attack.

    Israel (and the US/UK) desperately wants a new war, and will go to great lengths to provoke such. Think along the line of false flag attacks, typically (Mossad or another agency) launching an attack on their own citizens or assets and blaming Iran, or the enmy of choice. It happens all the time – this is the main way modern terror attacks are carried out, while getting the public to support the agenda that they could otherwise could not sell.

        No, that is not what it means. Semite means the sons Shem. Yes, not only Jews were the sons of Shem, but the Term Anti-Semite, historically referred to Jews.
        Jews did not come from Europe.
        They came from the Land of Israel and after many of them were expelled by the Romans some 2,000 years ago, some of them arrived to Europe.

        @James, how dare you use the word "holocaust" in the context of Israel's struggle against Iran, who is clearly the aggressor nation. All Israeli Jews want is to be left alone in the homeland of their fathers which dates back to Biblical times. The Iranian president himself is a holocaust denier and has publicly stated that Israel has no right to exist. Given his way he would kill every single Jew alive if he could. The Iranian military even attacks and kills their own civilians whenever the populace questions the iron-fisted authority of their president and clerics. Former U.S. President Bush may have been a blundering oaf of a president who delegated his authority away to his lieutenants like Cheney, BUT he was right on one thing..Iran IS a part of an axis of evil in this world, and a scourge on the face of our planet. Until the government of Iran is crushed and toppled there will be no peace in the Middle East for neither Arab or Jew.

Also, does this mean Israel won't whine and play the vestal virgin when Iran retaliates for all the sneaky stuff Israel has done? Israel LOVES war when others don't fight back.

      Billy;

      You should remember from the moment Israel took its first breath it has been at war with its neighbors. It wasn't Israel who attacked but was attacked by their neighbors. And the war has continued. It might have been open field contact between troops but nonetheless there has been hostility, mistrust, and a committment of the Arab nations to do harm towards Israel whenever possible. The lulls that have taken place between wars are just that, but the conflict continues. For the Arabs the concept of peace is only the calm between war and the Arab hope is that the next war will be the war the annihilates Israel. If you think of it, had the Palestinian made a half peace with Isreal and had kept a peaceful border with Isreal they would have enjoyed forty years of growth and had been able to give a new life to their children. I am almost certain that forty years of peace they would have gained more concessions from Isreal and the Palestinians would have been much better for it. Palestinians are much like the Isrealis. They have been a people without a land living in host countries where they are not fully accepted. They are resourceful and very capable, their only downfall is that they have misled by leadership and have been encouraged by their neighbors with land to continue the fight against Isreal.

      I have no beef with Jews, religiously or racially. I support the idea of a nation for the Jews. I am grateful for the many inventions that they have created to make this world a better place. The issue is the imposition of this nation on a people who lived there before any Jew who currently lives there stepped foot on that land. The issue is the intent and polciy of deception, hypocricy, harrasment and violence that Israels government and alot (if not most) of its people have chosen to use to get what they want, starting right from the creation of Israel after WW2

        Myrrthfull the US receives no benefit from our alliance with Israel. We did at one time, but not since the defeat of Soviet Russia. Now we shed lives and billions of dollars propping up a Likud dictatorship that scares it's own people into voting for them by refusing to negotiate a peace and continuing to provoke Palestinians with illegal settlement construction. Netanyahu and Likud hold on to power by waging perpetual war. They can only afford to do so because the US props up their economy with defense spending and our continued UN vetoes to protect illegal actions. With the Arab world changing, it is time for Israel to make peace and embrace its neighbors. It is time for the US to stop bleeding for a nation that continues to re-elect bloodthirsty warmongers like Likud and Netanyahu. If Israelis choose the bloody path, let them walk it alone. The US has asked Israel to stop building settlements and negotiate for the last time. I hope we walk away soon.

        We receive benefits like being spied upon and having our secrets sold to the Chinese. And by having our Navy fired upon while on a peaceful observer mission. Or by having the Israeli government openly conspire to murder Americans and blame the Arabs. Or by having three thousand people killed with terrorist airstrikes that they knew full well was coming. Or by having a hotel in Israel blown up and a monument raised to it that every Israeli prime minister shows up at annually to brag. Who wouldn't want benefits like that?

        Actually I do know what I am talking about Myrrfull and the security and intelligence we received from Israel is not worth the price we pay. Half the time the intelligence we now receive is not accurate because Israel interts propaganda into it to better support their view of things. It is BUSH intelligence. As for security help, they do little. Again, where we give Israel billions a year AND risk our troops in the Middle East primarily for Israeli benefit, not a single Israeli soldier has ever laid down their life for an American cause. How convenient.

        Even if that was all there was it might still be a sustainable relationship if it was not for the complete refusal by Israel to continue the settlement ban allowing it's biggest ally (the USA) to begin a peace process to end this conflict. That is the greatest betrayal of all. It speaks to real Israeli intention. They wish to use up all allies and all good will to delay a time when they must give back land. Their hope is to have land so settled there is no giving back. Israel is for Israel. They don't care about the billions the US spends each year to sustain the balance FOR them. They don't see any sacrifice unless it is an Israeli sacrifice. Why should ANY American care about a nation that so obviously has no regard or care for America?

        If Israel wishes to forego peace negotiations and build settlements, let them do it sacrificing Israeli blood, not American blood.

      And if Israel DID do so, what choice did it have? Iran arms, trains and funds terror organizations which regularly attack Israel. Iran calls for Israel to be wiped off the map. And Iran has been caught breaching the NPT for 20 years and refuses to come back into compliance. Iran did start it with Israel, after all.

        Well said Myrr – ignorance at its best. What choice does it have? Really? You people are f****** unbelievable! Your just as loony as the guy that just killed 12 people in Colorado. This reminds me of a report that surfaced (but was quickly squashed because it would absolutely create anti-semitic critism) when President Obama was giving Prime Minister NANA-Yahoo a hard time and he didnt like it very much. So, a report surfaced that Obama should be assassinated. Boy, did that get silenced quickly...and Obama's hard core approach changed so abruptly. Too bad. The US was finally starting to look like a leader at that point.

    Remember the Lex Talionis (“eye for eye, tooth for tooth) was not intended to be prescriptive, it was intended to prevent escalating violence.

    The point was–if you cannot find it in your heart to forgive your neighbor, your brother, your sister–then, at least, make sure your response is commensurate with the offense, lest there be an escalation of violence—that is, if you cannot find it in your heart to forgive.

    Now Cain said to his brother Abel, “Let’s go out to the field.” While they were in the field, Cain attacked his brother Abel and killed him.

    Then the LORD said to Cain, “Where is your brother Abel?”

    “I don’t know, ” he replied. “Am I my brother’s keeper?”

    The LORD said, “What have you done? Listen! Your brother’s blood cries out to me from the ground. Now you are under a curse and driven from the ground, which opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. When you work the ground, it will no longer yield its crops for you. You will be a restless wanderer on the earth. ”

        The questioning is rhetorical, which means one asks a question and does not expect an answer, for the answer is patently clear to everyone.

        Not only is this a commonly used Hebrew literary (and verbal) practice, but it has been commonly used, at least, since the Classical Period of Ancient Greece.

        This device is also used in Genesis, when God asks Adam and Eve where they are.

        God knows where they are, the question is: Adam and Eve, do you realize what you have done to yourselves or “where you are”?

    Israel has the right of self defense, and it has the right to protect its citizens abroad. You are a citizen of some country. So, if you do not side with Israel on this one, are you saying that it is totally fine for you to get blown up while vacationing? (See, it does not matter what the causes are; you are going to want some sort of government assurance in regard to your personal safety). Israel should not have made public comments in regard to Iran: this is what government networks are for.

    Kind of you get what you give, or what goes around comes around. Israel has nuclear weapons, and is apparently above any oversight in that regard. Israel is strongly suspected of being behind the assination of civilian scientists in Iran, similarly of being at least associated with if not behind the stuxnet virus ( the US stated that the use of cyber attacks against US interests would be interpreted as an act of war ). So – yes Israel is at war with Iran in part because they have been conducting one. As for Syria, a number of countries are supporting the rebels with funding, material and intelligence – probably Israel is one as perhaps they thought there was advantage to be gained. With the nature of what is going on now that does not seem assured. Indeed, seemingly the destabilization brought on by this is starting to manifest in Iraq along similar sectarian lines. The law of unintended consequences of barely thought through actions.

        To me it is like watching a bunch of children fight over some toys. Chiild 1) Its mine! Child 2) No mommie said I could have it before anyone!. Child 3) No its mine dam it! Then one child hits another, one child breaks another childs toys, they blame others, they have their friends destroy toys so they dont get in trouble or because they are afraid to do it themselves and on and on and on it goes. People on the sidelines see what they want to see and call out "fair fight" or "sucker punch!!!" but it still goes on...

        How does one solve such a problem with all these children calling each other names and lying and demanding and threatining and of course murdering each other? They obviously all carry this over from generation to generation breeding hatred... And who is better?

        What if we in the U.S. were to have Mexico come after us for ever claiming we stole their lands, etc... ( We did). How would we as Americans react if we switched shoes?

        It is a mess, these countries alone can not fix it obviously. No one side will stop or give in or change any more. So with a stalemate the game should be over but this is not the case.

        All I can think of is for both sides to stop the madness and try being kind to one another as a start... Just a start.

This is called assasination their is no other way to look at it. It cannot be assasination when they do it but defense when we do it. This is what Israel is trying to say. Sharon is a liar like most politicians, Israel in general is a country with a chip on it's shoulder from the past. They will never forget about the latest persecutions their people have gone through and their have been plenty throughout history. Many times from the Christians during the crusades, insquistion, various local scapegoating and the protestant refromation just to name a few.

    Israeli's were blowing up markets with civilians LONG before WWII; long before the Hazbollah..... At that time however, it wan't Israel – it was called British Mandate Palestine – The were bombing Brtis too –

    Of course it wasn't Israel directly (didn't exist) – it was the Irgun – the early for of the Likud Party – Netanyahu's party....

    Israel is as much responsible for the violence and unrest as the various other factions and governments in the area – Ironically there are many Israeli's (included elected members) that KNOW this and say it daily –

    The info we get here is only from the mouths of Netanyahu, Peres and those that thought Sharon was a great man (Sharon – who commited the massacare in Sabra and Shatila – killing MANY more people than some Serbian commanders that have been jailed for life – in some cases 3,000 more....)

    I am not anti-PEOPLE of Israel – but until their government acts responsibly also.... there will be no peace – BOTH sides have commited terrorist acts; horrific acts – BOTH sides use 'god' as the excuse...

    There is no difference between Hezbollah and the Likud party – none

      Many things you say here are correct historically, however can they be applied to the Likud party directly today is more serious of a question. The bottom line, here is the U.S. and the U.N. created Isreal knowing full well the history of the Israeli's from the period you speak of. The only part you left out is that Palestinians and Israeli's were holding hands while they targeted British personnel and objectives. The U.S. is responsible for Israel so evidently Israel can do nothing wrong so they get away literally with execution without a trial. If they think you are guilty the Mussad will get you once given the command.

      That's moronic. The Palestinian Arabs launched an ethnic, terror civil war against the Palestinian Jews in 1920. The British even prevented the Jews from defending themselves. Finally, in 1937, the Jews started fighting back. SOME of them used terrorism. They only used terrorism until 1948. Israel was formed and terrorism was outlawed.

      Sharon didn't commit Sabra and Shatilla, dunce. The Christian Phalangists did that, because they were sick of being murdered by Palestinian terrorists from those villages. After the Palestinian terrorists murdered the Christian political leader, the Christians had enough.

      Equating terrorists with a country which defends itself against terrorism is you being ludicrous.

The reason there is so much hatred for Israel is because they have the ignorance to believe they are always right, and the world is always wrong. The reason the US continues to protect Israel is because we have more Jewish lawmakers in the States, as well as in the Media and Law arena, that nothing will be done to silence the state of Israel from pushing people in the Middle East around. There is NOTHING anti-semetic about this statement. It is truth and in no way states that the people of Israel should be harmed by other nations who are sick and perverted. But, how about backing off the rhetoric of "invading" every country in the Middle East? The truth is...if you did it alone, in today's day and age (unlike the 60's), the World would go to war...and you think innocent Israelis is all that is at stake here? Millions of people would be in harms way...all because the F.E.A.R. (False Evidence Appearing Real) that Iran will nuke Israel, or Syria will fire chemical weapons at you. Its a good thing Kennedy didnt just fire missles at Cuba in the 60's...or it would already be over. They were just as much a threat to us, as it is for Israel.

        Another thing you idiots dont get.
        Gaza/West bank are territories, not nation states.
        Because they are territories and Israel is a nation
        they are afforded some special protections.

        If thy got "statehood" and launched rockets into Isreal

        rick you forgot to mention why all those wars are post 1940s. Because European Jews escaping persecution in Europe forced themselves on the inhabitants of what is now called Israel and declared a state. And continue to prevent millions of Palestinians who fled their homes from returning to their homeland. A Palestinian Arab is not Egyptian, Syrian, Lebanese, Iraqi, Saudi Arabian. They are from what is now called Israel. Jews stole their land and continues to have a policy of driving them out and taking more and more of their land.

        Myrrthfull...Jews from Europe and the rest of the world were coming to the land you now call Israel in the late 1800s and early 1900s at the behest of the British who were occupying the inhabitants (Arabs) of what you now call Israel. Ofcourse the inhabitants are going to be upset. They wanted their land back, they wanted freedom of British occupation. They shouldn't have attacked civilians but Jews shouldn't have been imposing themselves on a people to later declare a nation ontop of. Just recently Jews were unhappy that a few Africans are in Israel, imagine a policy of ethnic dilution by an occupying force, Israelis would loooove that. You keep running around in circles to avoid the simple fact that there was no Israel, the land was majority inhabitated by Arabs (Christian and Muslim), and Jews with the blessing of British occupiers stole the land. You're real arguement is Jews were given that land by God so just come out and say it. Ofcourse you know that wouldn't fly in this world so you lie your way around the events. Eventually more and more people will learn the truth just like I learned the truth not so long ago.

      How about this wake-up character spewing poorly written fiction?

      Maybe Syria shouldn't have attacked Israel in 1967 and lost the Golan Heights. Maybe Syria shouldn't have attacked Israel in 1948 and captured the Golan Heights in the first place.

      Maybe Israel isn't steamrolling over Christians at all. Maybe the Palestinians are... The Christian population in the West Bank dropped dramatically in areas the PA took over. The Christians in Gaza are currently being systematically abused... by Hamas.

      Your statement is very much anti-Semitic. The U.S. sides with Israel because the American public itself sides with Israel by a wide margin. Attempting to blame "Jewish politicians," is very clearly you being an anti-Semite. Why don't you want to own up to your own anti-Semitism? It's right in front of our faces. Are we supposed to ignore it?

      Jews and Arabs were BOTH Palestinians. The Golan Heights belonged to Palestine, but Syria captured it in 1948. Egypt captured Gaza in 1948. Jordan captured the West Bank and E. Jerusalem in 1948. All those areas were wiped completely clean of every single Jew. Then the Arab countries chose to declare another war in 1967 and lost. OOPS! Jews moved back in. And you pretend that the Jews are the unethical ones for "occupying territory" that was only cleansed of Jews for 19 years? Loser.

How many? Let me get a calculator...0! None! So, let's ask the question again. What proof do we have of the Iranian's having the bomb again? F.E.A.R (False Evidence Appearing Real). That is what this dog and pony show is. Network Television shows how pretty friggen "thorough" the Mossad special forces are. If they are soooo good...why not do what US Special Forces have done, and infiltrate and assassinate those shooting rockets at Israel. Quietly and with limited bloodshed.

      That's the typical Israeli argument : My crime is morally superior to your crime...'cuz I say so. I had a discussion with another Israel Firster on another board who actually was questioning whether or not killing the scientists was even a crime if it saved thousands of lives. She actually was disputing that murdering someone in their own country working in a legitimate field and doing the same exact thing that scores of other scientists in their respective countries, was a crime, because as she claimed it saved thousands of lives. She never proved it saved thousands of lives.

      The Israel Firsters like to use "justification via imagination". If they can imagine up something they feel it is justification for any crime they want to commit. And then they come on here using that absurdity to argue their points.

When a civilian scientist is killed it is ignored by the media as a simple control effort. Iran did not admit the bombing in Bulgaria, so why accuse Iran? The only people that support Israel are the ones that gullibly follow media run by jews. That is a fact as well.

The quote from Iran that they want to "Wipe" Israel off of the map is a mis translation by the West. Iran has challenged Isreal legitamicy as a nation in the Middle East as reparation to the Jews for what the Nazi's has done. Since the nazi threat is gone, Jews should return home to their countries of origin.

    If Israel has the hard evidence of Iran behind the Bulgarian violence; take it to the US Security council. Ask the Security council to ake a vote to further sanction Iran and ask china and Russia to vote with the US. If the Security Council fails to vote becasue of vetoes, then Israel should hold a vote in its government authroizing a formal declaration of war – and if this passes, Israel should announce it to Iran; come out of the shadows, and then do what it should havre done before - bomb the nuclear facilities.... But all of this back and forth chatter does absolutely NOTHING

      The one problem with that is Israel's excess nuclear weapons. One Israel is destroyed it will use them and it might very well use them against the West. Look up the "Samson Option," and you'll see why the US placed an anti-missile defense in the Mediterranean.

      You are an absolute and total idiot. Some Jews did migrate back to Palestine, but the real breaking point came with the UN focus on creating a Jewish homeland after WW II. The problem was, and is, that since the Diaspora, other peoples had moved into the region, and some had simply never left. When Jews began moving back after the war, they jumped the gun on independence, with the blessing of the UN. The British had promised to back the plan, and the US should have let them take the heat, but instead we became the backer, with the primary motivation of heading off the Soviets. The rest, as they say, is simply a history of chairmen of the Fed. with Jewish last names and never-ending strife between Israel and all of its neighbors.

        US have not really backed Israel untill the seventies 25 years after Israel independence.
        During the War of Independance of 1948, the American State Department imposed an arms embargo on the region. It was a stab in the back to the Jews, and American knew it well, because just a couple of days before the embargo, Britain officially informed the USA and the United nations that it would NOT suspend the weapons shipments to Arabs.

      Just to give you some facts Jewish population has been halfed in Iran since the Islamic revolution in Iran.
      Also don't forget the 600 years of wars of Islamic wars against Europe under the Ottoman rule. The scientific achievements of Islamic empire were mediocare at best. Just think if muslims were so scientifically oriented why is it that now they are the most scientifically deprived region in the world. Why?(because they never really were scientifically minded society). There is actual correlation that when muslims were invading regions such as Egypt and Persia and India that is when their scientific knoledge grew. After the muslim expension slowed so did their scientific knowldge. While Europe scientific knowledge grew from within. Lets also get real, people have been mislead that the current numeric system is called "Arabic numerals" which is total lie since the numerals actually originated from India H 1100 years before the rise of Islam and 400 years before the Roman Empire, around 400 BC. Also If muslims were so tolerant people why did the largest Jewish population before www2 was in Poland a christian country?

    Well I recall the US listened to Isreal that Saddame had weapons of mass destruction. We bought it hook line and sinker costing the U.S. plenty in lives and dollars. What was found nothing. However the middle east was destablized and if religion does play a factor aligned it more with Iran than any country since most are Shiite. I think everyone knows if a war with Iran is started the world will not like the results as economies will crash, fuel will go sky high and many governments will be dealing with riots. I would think the major powers should tell Israel if you invade Iran you go it alone. I seriously doubt Iran has any interest in Israel. Perhaps just an Idea the U.N. do another resolution and make everyone in New Jersey move, we relocate all the Isrealies here then there would be no worry of war. The Arabs are happy, oil drops in price and economies rise.

        Israel's air-force is made in America. If Israel thought they had the power to knock off Iran they would have done it by now.

Because of sanctions since 1979 Iran has been able to become self efficient and reliant a feat that the entire world thought could never happen. Israel and the US need to stop bullying and talking down to Iran until that stops you will never have regime change in Iran or peace in the Middle East.

        "Syria is tied to the hip with Iran" is a point of view...a metaphor if you will. I deal in facts...not subjective points of view. Syria is a one nation – Iran is another period. It doesn't matter if YOU and your ilk see them tied/joined at the hip or call them Siamese twins or any other characterization designed for your "guilt by association" argument. They both have different governments and leaders period. "joined at the hip" and other tortured characterizations designed to find Peter guilty for the actions of Paul don't apply to international law...only western domestic jurisprudence. If I in my subjective point of view see Israel as the Siames twin of Rwanda, that does not make it so. They are two separate sovereign nations and no amount of creatively worded crap will change that fact.

    If Iran did carry out these attacks via proxy then Israel should not be surprised and reap what is sows. What does Israel expect by carrying out the equivalent attacks on Iranian civilian scientist? The world needs to wake up, there is a double standard here, whenever Israel kills a person it is considered war against terror but if Iran does the same it is considered terrorism. Iran and the US does not want war, Israel does and through its lobbyist will try to push for it. Israel will not survive one week in a head to head battle with Iran, through propaganda and clever marketing Israel's military might is over rated and Iran's is under-rated. Iran has lived with sanctions for over 33 years and is a self sufficient nation that fought a war with Iraq in the 80's while Saddam was aided by the US and ARAB countries. Neither the US nor its puppet Israel has a right to forcefully tell a nation that has a history of 2,500 years and is a signatory to the NPT to not have nuclear technology. There is a reason why most of the world and countries despise the govt. of the nation of Israel, Iran is by no means a democratic State but why meddle in their affairs?

Futhermore Iran has NEVER attacked Israel, so unless the Iranian Revolutionary Guards attacked Israel then said guards are not a legitimate target for Israel to attack unprovoked and neither were the scientists.

        Yours is just an exercise in high hypocrisy where you're claiming that you're crime is morally superior to theirs.

        *** Futhermore Iran has NEVER attacked Israel.....

        Every rocket launched at Israel from Hezzbolah and hamas
        was supplied by Iran.
        Even The Egyptians and Saudi's admit this.
        Turky has even intercepted shipments both at her ports and at airports.
        Your not fooling anybody.

        An arms supplier is NOT an attacker. There are scores of countries that sell or supply arms to various other countries all over the world. Supplying a party with whom you sympathize with weapons and training is not the same as attacking said party's enemy and history is rife with examples of this...most notably the US supplying weapons and training to the Mujahadeen during the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. The US made sure NOT to attack the soviet aircraft but supplied the Mujahadeen with the means and training to do so. If using a proxy was the same as a direct attack then that would negate the use of a proxy in the first place. History is rife with other examples e.g. the Korean War, Vietnam war...in fact every permanent member of the security council has supplied arms to parties hostile to other permanent members. Iran plays by the same rules as everyone else.

        Iran has NEVER attacked Israel. The "if you eat I feel full" fuzzy logic doesn't work here.

In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a "Palestinian people".."

        You are a liar. That's not a threat. Show me where Iran said Iran is going to wipe out Israel. Iran saying "Israel should be wiped out" is NOT the same as Iran saying "Iran will wipe out Israel". You wouldn't know what a threat is if it shot you in the behind and tried to remove the bullet with needle nose pliers. Secondly even deputy Israeli Prime Minister Dan Meridor finally admitted that Iran NEVER said it was going to wipe Israel off the map, so your line about "wipe out Israel" is a LIE.

      Arab, you have a serious mental problem. The State of israel is situated on land that was promised to the Jewish People by God, the same one you believe in. So get off your high horse and be true Muslims. True Muslims are loving, holy people, not people like you who think nothing of making war on innocent people.

        True muslims will never be at peace with the Jewish people only because they don't believe that they are teh chosen of God. They believe Ishmael was... which is clearly shown in history who God favors... Islam lost to the Jews so many times... True muslims are not loving, caring, or anything but hateful like their god Satan.

        "It is written in the Holy Qur'an that God granted the Land of Israel to the Children of Israel and ordered them to settle therein (Qur'an, Sura 5:21) & that before the Last Day He will bring the Children of Israel to retake possession of their Land, gathering them from all different countries and nations (Qu'ran, Sura 17:104). Consequently, as a Muslim who abides by the Qur'an, I believe that opposing the existence of the State of Israel means opposing a Divine decree."
