Panetta believes Israel could strike Iran this spring

By Barbara Starr

U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has come to the conclusion there is a growing likelihood Israel could attack Iran sometime this spring in an effort to destroy its suspected nuclear weapons program, according to a senior administration official.

The official declined to be identified due to the sensitive nature of the information.

Panetta's views were first reported by the Washington Post's David Ignatius, who wrote Panetta "believes there is strong likelihood that Israel will strike Iran in April, May or June - before Iran enters what Israelis described as a 'zone of immunity' to commence building a nuclear bomb."

Asked by reporters in Brussels, where Panetta is attending NATO meetings, the defense secretary refused to comment. But Panetta told reporters the U.S. has "indicated our concerns" to Israel, according to a transcript provided by the Defense Department.

But the official also noted that Israel goes through cycles of making aggressive statements about its intentions toward Iran in an effort to pressure the United States and the West to take more action.

Iran's supreme leader issued a blunt warning Friday that war would be detrimental to the United States - and that Iran is ready to help anyone who confronts "cancerous" Israel.

"You see every now and then in this way they say that all options are on the table. That means even the option of war," Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said during Friday prayers in Tehran. "This is how they make these threats against us.

Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak warned Thursday that Iran may be close to the point "which may render any physical strike as impractical," according to Reuters.

But just a few weeks ago, Barak suggested things were not as urgent, saying an Israeli decision on whether to strike Iran's nuclear program was "very far off."

A "confluence' of intelligence has led Panetta to this conclusion, the official told CNN, but declined to offer any specifics except noting that the United States conducts intelligence operations aimed at Israel as it does with many other allies.

The senior administration official also noted that there is a general understanding in the administration that Israel may have come to the firm conclusion Iran is developing a nuclear weapon.  Just last week, the recently retired chief of Israeli military intelligence told CNN's David McKenzie that the "Iranians have already decided that they want nuclear weapons," he said.  But he added they haven't decided fully to go through with creating the weapons.

The official U.S. assessment is that Iran has not yet made that decision, the source said.

At a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Central Intelligence Agency Director David Petraeus, who said he has regular discussions with Israel's leadership and intelligence head, noted that "Israel does see this possibility as an existential threat to their country, and I think that it is very important to keep that perspective in mind."

At the same hearing, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper noted the United States works closely with the Israelis and said the notion that Israel could strike is "a very sensitive issue right now."

"This is an area that we are very, very concerned about," Clapper said.

Panetta's press secretary, George Little, declined to comment on the report. Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, recently said it would be premature for the United States to consider striking Iran.

    The unsaved people on here just don't get it. Israel will not fail....did you also know that when Jesus comes back all knees will bow, even those who still reject Him? They will bow, then still go to hell, regretting their decisions to reject Jesus. There will be many tears of regret that day.

        Go to Israel and see how they treat non-Jews. They are a nation built on occupation, desorting history, bringing other nations to send their kids to fight for them while they plan for the next war. While we send our kids to die for them, they make policy to make money out of it. Ask Leiberman....

    Normal folks, I have to get back to my job (IT Security in the Federal Government here in Washington, DC). Please report anyone online who supports harm to a Government official (per 18 USC 871, 875 & 876). It is also against the law to write messages online that support declared enemies of the US Federal Govt. Each person must follow the "Rules of Conduct". Go to http://www.IC3.gov and fill out a complaint and they (FBI & DHS) can get that person's PII from CNN in a matter of minutes. FBI at 410-265-8080 or CNN 404-827-2600 or 911. Thank you.

    @NK The 99.9% of the Jews in Israel have no historical connection to Palestine. These are all immigrants from different parts of the world. That's what Ahmadinjad means when he says "1948" but you are too stupid to understand that.

    But tell me one thing what will you do when Jesus Christ will exterminate the Jews? Will you fight your god or help with the extermination.

      Here we go getting dragged into another war. Is that what the majority of American people want? I understand that Israel is one of our greatest supporters, along with England, but part of the reason for the Iraq war was to help Israel feel more secure, not because Iraq had attacked the U.S. and we all know there were no weapons of mass destruction. That war added 100s of billions of dollars to our debt and thousands of American lives. Are we about to go there again?

      @ Larry – We Israeli's have plenty of Christian and Catholic supporters. You are blaming the Jews for the death of Jesus?? I think is was more like the Romans?? Anyhow, I worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. I do not worship Jesus. Jesus was a very smart human being, but in no way do I accept that he was born to a virgin, nor do I accept or worship any fallen human as my messiah. Unfortunately, people that are blinded by this always seem to falls through the cracks as was the case under your former Reverend Jim Jones & his People's Temple, David Koresh, etc.

      Yes the Jews did put Christ on the cross and denied Him and that is why He then offered salvation to the Gentiles, to make them jealous. All Jews will be saved but not until the 7 yr. tribulation time. God opens their eyes and they will finally see whom they have pierced.

    My Jewish friends, please read below and see the fate that awaits you. Evangelical support for Isreal is only due to their belief about coming of the Messiah but in the end you will be terminated. A 2nd holocaust awaits at the hands of Christ.

    Many Christians talk about how Jesus Christ will bring peace to the world, once and for all. But they often neglect to mention how this world “peace” is obtained. It is only after slaughtering his opponents and subduing “the nations” (the entire world?) under the foot of the global Christian empire that the world will have “peace”. Gill’s Exposition of the Entire Bible explains:
    There shall be no more war; horses and chariots shall be no more used in a hostile way; but there shall be perfect peace, all enemies being destroyed, which agrees with Micah 2:3 Zechariah 9:10.

        Actually Jews were a nation of people WITHOUT a country for 4000 years, back in the day they LIived together with their enimies in Palistine they all fell from the same Tree – BUT Due to their own Seperationist lives they did NOT intergrate like the Muslims and probably 70% of the world- Brazil has the Largest population of Japanese outside of Japan but they DONT intergrate- Brazil was the LARGEST importer of African slaves for 100's of years BUT when slavery ended they intergrated

        Having said that They all have Beautiful women & IF I was Israel i would BOMB the Crap out of the little Hitler in Iran- better yet put a $50 BILLION dollar bounty on his head- it would be loopped off quick

      Well considering that the scriptures were written at a time when you could sail off the end of the world, I would think most of the planet will be safe.

      Money is the downfall of Israel's military incursions. They have to get it gifted from the US and that historical trend is no longer a certainty especially from Obama. This is one reason they have such a powerful lobby within US congress, to get military aid and cash aid. Keep in mind they press for aid and not loans.

        Without US military aid, which is also gifted to many in the region who unlike Israel do not pay back 80% into the US economy, Israel will be released of all the conditions which come with the aid and can sell what they want to whom they want and unfortunately US military and citizens will find themselves far more vulnerable.

      Actually, yes. They have a large standing and reserve army with technology equivalent (and in some cases better such as their tanks) to the US. Go read about the Arab-Isreali war...they had 4 or 5 countries take them on and they sent them home with their tail between their legs. Pretty incredible really for such a small country.

        Tanks have nearly become obsolete. The best tank is only as good as it's armor and the M1A2 has a new generation armor that is so impressive it cannot be exported. We have the British to thank for that technology. Ask any tank soldier in the US Cavalry what they want to sit in of all the battle tanks and they will say M1A2 please.

      Israelis dont think its gonna be "cake". They think its going to be a very hard war that is necessary to preserve their survival. You seem to think that Israelis discuss war as Americans do. But unlike in America, in Israel, war is always discussed in the context of survival.

      Also keep in mind that before America took out sadaam, Iran and Iraq where in check of each other. Now, thanks to Bush (and now Obama), both countries are run by Shiite extremists.... and Israel has to deal with it in the form of emboldened terrorist proxies and threat of nuclear annihilation. We are headed for war, guys. Hold on, this one is going to be big.

    My St. Raphael’s Catholic Church in Rockville, Maryland and the 2 billion Christians world-wide strongly support the Jews living in their homeland and defending themselves from the racist Iran. The Jews were in the land of Israel for more than 2,000 years BEFORE Islam even began.

      The Jews living in Israel today are as much descendants of the children of Jacob as the residents of New York are the descendants of Peter Minuet's Dutch Colonists. The Palestinians are the descendants of the same people that the Israeli tribes tried to exterminate 3500 years ago when they came from Egypt to a land that they never inhabited but was promised to one of their ancestors in return for sacrificing his son. Your argument holds as much water as a straw hat.

    MARTIN LUTHER, Table Talk of Martin Luther, translated by William Hazlet, page 43"But the Jews are so hardened that they listen to nothing; though overcome by testimonies they yield not an inch. It is a pernicious race, oppressing all men by their usury and rapine. If they give a prince or magistrate a thousand florins, they extort twenty thousand from the subjects in payment. We must ever keep on guard against them." l

    BBC NEWS, 27/12/2011

    Rabbis Dov Lior and Yacob Yousef had endorsed a highly controversial book, the King's Torah – written by two lesser-known settler rabbis. It attempts to justify killing non-Jews, including those not involved in violence, under certain circumstances.
    The fifth chapter, entitled "Murder of non-Jews in a time of war" has been widely quoted in the Israeli media. The summary states that "you can kill those who are not supporting or encouraging murder in order to save the lives of Jews".

    At one point it suggests that babies can justifiably be killed if it is clear they will grow up to pose a threat.

    A Montreal doctor has been suspended and fined for filming female patients with a hidden camera while they were naked. Quebec's College of Physicians says it has suspended Dr. Barry Rabinovitch for four months and fined him $3,000. According to the disciplinary report released Tuesday, the investigation found that Rabinovitch filmed 10 to 15 women in various stages of undress in an examining room between January and May 2009. The 56-year-old is a married father of two children and a lung specialist. He is also an associate professor with McGill University's medical faculty.

    BILL HEMMER, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Thank you. Again, our apologies to our viewers about five minutes ago, but we do have an established connection now with CNN's Deborah Feverick. The reports we're getting now, two or three men arrested on the New Jersey Parkway. Deborah, can you hear me now?

    DEBORAH FEVERICK, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Yes, I can. That is the information that I am getting from two sources, that there was a van either on the New Jersey Turnpike or the Garden State Parkway, and that it was near the George Washington Bridge.

    There were two or three men who were in the van that was pulled over. It is not clear why the van was pulled over, but when it was, law enforcers found tons of explosives inside of the van.

    That is, right now, all I am hearing. But again, two to three people in custody, and we are trying to get more information on that right now.

    HEMMER: Deborah, I don't mean to put you on the spot here. Do you know where on the Jersey Turnpike this was? How far from New York City?

    FEVERICK: We do not know that. We are looking into that. There is one report that it was on the New Jersey Turnpike. There is another report that it was very close to the bridge, if not on the bridge. So again, these details are emerging. We're trying to piece them together. But that's what we have so far, two to three people in custody, found with a van filled with explosives.

    We destroyed the Osirak Nuclear Facility in Iraq back in June 1981, with no help from anyone. We then destroyed a Syrian Nuclear Facility that was being built back in September 2007, with no help from anyone. When we get the order to destroy Iran's Nuclear Facility, we will, once again, go at it alone, with no help from anyone. The Israeli Air Force is the Finest in the World. And if anyone has any doubt, just look at our complete history dating all the way back to the six-day war of 1967, Yom Kippur war of 1973, Raid on Entebbe 1976, etc.

        US did not provide any military assistance until after the 67 war when it was in there interest as a counter balance to soviet influence in the region. The jets and bombs that Israel purchases from the US are just a boost to the US military industrial complex. The US actually shut down the native israeli warplane development so it can perpetuate its own industry. Israel, despite its limited natural resources still produces its own firearms Uzi, tavor. It has developed its own native missile defense system, tanks, computer systems, and it has developed many innovations for US troops such as the trophy missile shield for tanks. The notion that the US props up the entire Israeli military is hogwash, it def is a main component, but it is by no means the only one.

      I really fell for Israel we put them in the situation. Israel has a good air force but not the finest in the world the US air force could if it wanted to could destroy Israel air force in a matter of days if not hours. You need to read your history the only reason Israel was able to win the six day war was because it was given tank and equipment by the US to replace the ones that were destroyed. Yes Israel has a good military and is a US ally but I think Israel should think twice about attacking Iran without the UN or at least the US and Europe’s backing. Israel is surrender by hostel country; The US might not be able to respond if needed to help Israel do to the fact the US has been at war for 11 years in two countries. NATO is busy so if Israel chooses to attack Iran it might very well be on its own with no help from other countries. And we still don’t know what Russia and china will do if Israel attacks Iran. Israel would be in big trouble if both these country come to Iran’s aid I would think about that before bragging about how good Israel military is, do you think Israel could defeat Iran China and Russia on its own? I don’t it doesn’t have the manpower, hell I’m not sure if the US could win a war against all three of them without help and our military is three times the size of Israel.

      Well past history and honestly, fairly old history bar Syria is not exactly a guarantee of contemporary success so listing past glories means little.

      As for Osirak, well the Israeli Airforce were the second to strike it, Iran were first to launch a strike in 1980, more importantly, it didn't work and these kind of counter-proliferation strikes really cannot work. After the Israeli strike the Iraqi program went underground with increases in both manpower and funding as per the Iraqis themselves(http://transcripts.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0302/07/cf.00.html). It did not stop the Iraqi program; it did slow it down mind which was no small thing. What did halt the Iraqi program was full scale ground invasions in 1991 and 2003, the former severely curtailing the freedom of movement of any programs and subjecting Iraq to onerous inspections. The latter invasion completely removing any chance to reactivate the defunct program.

      Iran's sites are better protected, more numerous and probably not all known so any strike may well not have even a significant retarding effect, it will convince the Iranians that the bomb is needed. Barring a voluntary cessation by the Iranians, nothing short of a full invasion and overthrow of the regime will prevent them or anyone else that wants nukes and has the capability from getting the bomb. But a full invasion is costly in many ways and no small act, clearly as a form of counter-proliferation full scale invasion is not a practical tool. A strike will create a whole mess of new problems in the region, Iran is not Syria and will not take an Israeli strike on the chin and leave it there.

    Here is my feelings on this subject, with all due respect to everybody else. I feel as if we as a nation and a world are totally exhausted by war and saber rattling. I respect a nations right to protect themselves from those who will do all they can do to harm their sovereignty, but at some point we need to draw a line. I feel the best way to handle rouge nations and leaders is to do it quickly and quietly with the backing of the UN.. My problem with just out right attacking Iran is all of the innocent people, who never asked to be in this situation who will suffer from an attack on nuclear reactors. An attack on those points will do nothing other than legitimize iran's position against the west, and create even more chaos in a region already in turmoil. From what I can understand most of the people of Iran are not a fan of their leaders and their current state, so why punish them for the sins of their leaders? War is Hell, literally, and I am not a fan of the idea of all out war anymore. First off, from a non humanitarian way of looking at things, is we cannot afford another war, and our enemies know this.. I believe that the world sharing in the burden of removing the current heads of state is the only way this makes sense. I feel that we could surgically remove these psychos if we had to. There, I'm sure, are plenty of people in Iran who would welcome this. I agree something needs to be done but about them having nuclear weapons, but I think we should all be on the same page before we throw millions headlong into another war.

    Israel is nothing without the help of USA and other western countries. They don't have anything from themselves, no history, no resources, no economy...... Just look at the size of Israel on the map. but they always bluff because they know that USA (to be more accurate americans' taxes) is behind them. if US doesn't help them they couldn't live one more day. and the most pathetic thing about them is that they are allowed to do whatever they want just by one justification: SELF DEFENSE

      Israel would CRUSH Iran in a non-nulcear war. All they do is fight and Iran hasn't fought since the 80s. They have the best equipment, training, and a proven successful strategy in defense against invaders and internal conflicts. And judging by other attitudes in the Middle East, I don't think Israel would be alone as Saudi Arabia would probably jump in just to clam the area down and help eliminate the Iranian threat.

We now know It was Iran's attack on Iraq's nuclear facilities in 1980 that did the real damage. The Israeli attack in 81 hardly did anything except influence Israel's elections the next week which is why the attack took place.. The real causes for the end of Iraqs nuclear program were the costs of the Iran Iraq war, and the US destroying all of Iraqs facilities in the 91 gulf war.

    You better belive the US should be concerned. An attack by Israel, using intelligence and targeting provided by the US, makes the US culpable. Iran may just pull the plug on caution and do quite a lot of damage to US assets in the region. The US has been putting on quite the show when it comes to a military confrontation with relatively defenseless adversaries, but a conflict with Iran will expose that facade for what it is, a sham. And the resulting economic damage will be the last straw for this weak nation held together by a thread.

    Just what we need: another antisemite blaming Jews/Israel for all the world's problems.

    1." Let the Jews fight for themselves, for a change." - It may have escaped your notice that Israel has always fought alone, without a single US soldier on the ground.

    2. "How many Jewish boys went off to fight in Iraq and Afghanistan? None " – Wrong. Plenty of Jewish servicemen are still fighting in Iraq/Afghanistan. Why point them out? Are you going to say that there were no Jewish victims on 9/11 either??

    3." The average American tax payer is sick of giving Israel," – You mean like lending Israel money or giving loan-guarantees and being amply repaid through US arms purchases and hi-tech co-operation ? Unlike the billions squandered on Egypt, Jordan and the PA...

    4. " Israel.. steals more Palestinian land and get the Muslims mad at us. " - Israel is settling on disputed Palestinian territory. Palestine as a state hasn't been created yet and it's obvious that Jordan and Israel already occupy the bulk of former Ottoman Palestine – hence the need for another mini-state in this region was a no-starter right from the beginning, and is only a ploy by the Arabs to delegitimise Israel ( a legally created UN State ).

    Oh, and some Arabs are mad at us already, never mind Israel..

      Steyn, you are full of it. As we blog Israel is expanding settlements and basically told the US to go screw itself with regard to the issue, as they have continually for the last couple of years. Your problem is that you expect to make statements that are patently false and get away with it because you believe that all americans are stupid and have no understanding of the history of the region.Wrong! That makes you a liar and so now that we know you are a liar, why should we take you seriously. Now you are doing a disservice to members of your community who deserve our support, that are good decent people worthy of our respect. The other point you make which is the same arguments that most jews of your ilk make, is that everyone who dissents with the israelis, is that we are automatically anti-semites. Wrong again. I have a great deal of respect for most of the jews I have met in my lifetime, not so with israeli politicians who hustle their own people into supporting their agenda at their expense. It is not the israeli people who are the proplem, it is the zionist thugs, hoodlum and gangsters who have no principles and will sacrifice their own people to achieve their goals and objectives.

First israel will never anounce it , if they were to attack Iran just like they did in syris and iraq. 2nd they don't have the guts to do it, they are just a whole bunch of lunatic who are in charge in israel, but can only attack people who are diffenceless like the children and women in palestine, they don't even treat their own ethiopian jews the same. you treat them like a second class citizen.. 3rd. iran has been a home and savior of the jews for thousend of year and as recently as IIww where so many polish and jews escaped the russian death camp and arrived in iran via caspian sea and iranian took care of them. Iran is not a threat to the world. as a matter of fact Israel is the main source of threat not only in the middle east,but all around the world with all the lobbying they do and how they manipulate and infest countries with corruption. I want to take this example of how pathetic your kind is. Just a few days ago , one of your kind and editor of atlanta jewish times MATT ALDER wrote an article and in that he stated that If obama let Iran get nuclear bomb, mossad should assasin him. It didn't make the top news since your kind also controls the news. but this is the way you and your kind mentality is. whoever is in your way instead of colaboration , you have to go and assasin them. I am sure that jfk was a mossoad job as well since jfk apposed a nuclear israel.

        Iran threatens Israel with annihilation and you want them to ignore this threat and allow Iran the means to accomplish this because ? because what exactly? because you are a muslim whiner? because you hate Israel? because you and your ilk hate jews? because you are a palestinian apologist and 5 times a day chant the arab mantra "woe is me, woe is me, everyone but us has caused our misery" . when and hat would you do if your neighbor threatened to kill you and went out to buy a gun. would you take action?

      Just where do you get your HISTORY from? When did Israel ever defeat Persia? The ancient Israelites were defeated by both the Assyrians and Babylonians, and the latter were defeated by the Persians under Cyrus the Great, who then allowed the Jews exiled in Babylon to return home. I think you are confusing the Jews with the Greeks, who did indeed defeat the Persian Empire a number of times.

      I guess that you conclude that 600 nuclear bombs in the hands of the israelis is no problem because they are more stable. wrong! the israelis are the biggest reason the middle east is unstable but you drones believe all of the BS the israelis promote because you know nothing of the history. israel will sell out america in a new york minute if they don't get there way. they will tell the UN to go screw themselves, they will tell the US to go screw themselves and they will tell the world to go screw themselves. If israel does strike iran the us policy should be your on your own for blowing things for everyone, most especially because they won't listen to us in terms of dealing with the issue diplomatically along with the rest of the world community and then they will drag us into it to support them because theoretically we are allies. we are only allies when they want something, if they don't get what they want, then they will basically screw us over, we owe them nothing most especially knowing they will do what they want regardless of our request to not go after iran. so now that you know that this is true, why would we support them after the fact? If they do this the world community should act in unison and basically let israel pick up the tab for their actions period for not working with the world community. it is time to stop israel's unilateral provocations and llet the world community vocally dissent by letting israel know they will be on their own in terms of whatever repercussions follow. enough of israel's BS

      Again, your comment just shows how ignorant americans are with regard to these issues. Israel has in the range of 600 nuclear bombs. you think they have that many because they are concerned that they will run out soon? even if iran can finally make 1, you have to have a delivery system to lauch it and they don't, which makes them a sitting duck with regard to the proposition. so what is the argument, they will be a threat to everybody else? how? 1 bomb is not going to take out the entire world. oh, so you mean yea.....but iran will use it? what do you think israel will do with its arsenal if push comes to shove? give the unemployed something to do by having them shine the bombs? you people are ridiculous. the real threat to world peace right now is israel because if they make the move there will be collateral damage to the rest of us. and that is why they should not be allowed to do it. but if they do it will absolutely let you know with complete certainty that they are full of it. because the act itself will clear up the issue about diplomacy versus rogue states doing whatever they want without the world community involvement. in other words the act itself will tell you that israel will do whatever it wants no matter what the world community wants. and that should alarm you. just because they go in after iran just using jets this time doesn't mean the next time they won't use nukes. what, israel wouldn't so something like that because what? they are more rational than that? wrong, if they do it, it will tell you just how irrational they are and you will have your confirmation.

    The best way for Israel to pull this off would be to launch a strike unilaterally, while in the midst of a military exercise with the U.S. The U.S. would have few options other than to support Israel, because it would be perceived by everyone else as a bilateral action anyway. Basically Israel would be forcing the U.S's hand into a war. Certainly their would be costs for Israel to pay afterwards, however, their threat with Iran would be a done deal!

    More preemptive war based on the protection of Israel. If everyone already forgot the onerous to go into Iraq was the accusation by the US that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction and Israel was in great danger/Iraq would destabilize the region. How terribly ironic in hindsight.

    You will notice the only two types of people in support of this are the un/misinformed and the Christian/Jewish dogmatic delusionals.

    I heard of this propaganda of Iran-USA- and Israel in last 10 years almost everyday ... I am sick and tired of it . I thinks Israel is a spoiled in middle east country by USA. this is simple fact .If Israel wanted to be part of ME, they have to open the door on IAEA , this is simple as 1,2,3 . They cant have more than 200 nuke weapons and tell other nation you are not allowed to have one. why politician leader in USA doesn't understand this simple fact. Iran is isolated from north and south and east and west by Russia , Pakistan,India , USA in Persian golf and Israel with nuke weapons. How do you fell if your house is located in the area that all of your Neighborhood kept the gun in their house and all pointed to your house? I will be nervous and i wont let my kids to walk out the yard and street to play with my neighborhoods kids at all.
    I think IAEA must enforce the Israel to get rid of their nuke and then ME will be safe and no American solder lose their bloods . USA please remember no war for Israel in Iran .If Israel attack Iran either Iran pay the consequence of thinking having nuke weapon or Israel pay the consequences of being a dictator on middle east .

    I'm confused... and have been for quite sometime. Here's the question: Why is Israel allowed to NOT admit it has no nukes (for military use) and allowed to not have International inspectors or inspections, when EVERYBODY knows they do? The world pretends this is not happening. But we are ready to go to yet another war with Iran who admitted the have some sort of nuclear program? Please, I'm serious, can someone help me make sense of this?

      That was poorly written. Sorry. In a nutshell, why are we allowing the Israelis to hold us (the U.S. of A.) hostage by a threat of war (which we will have to cleanup) when they don't adhere to ANY International Nuclear laws. They don't admit they have weapons (which they do) and don't allow Inspectors from governing bodies to inspect them. THEN they want their neighbors to be subjected to rules THEY don't follow. Is this really happening??

      AIPAC, lobbyists, money, and Jewish lawmakers.

      A seldom known fact, and often misquoted, Irans president who un actuality has no power never threatened to wipe Israel off the map with force instead rhetorically said "Israel should be Palestine, Israel shouldn't even be on a map". This alone is used as the evidence that Iran would instantly use nukes on Israel and therefore warrants a preemptive strike, the morons eat it up and support it while Israel sits back and wonders if they really can get the US to do their bidding again! Obama is resisting and we can see the Jewish backlash in their posturing daring to do so. We Re a nation of fear and religion, manipulated rather effortlessly and without much critical thinking by the populace. Secuization is the key to enlightenment.

        Apparently Ahmadinejad said in Farsi "the occupying regime (in Israel) would vanish from the pages of time." (bearing in mind the word "map" doesn't exist in Farsi). Unfortunately (or possibly deliberatedly?) The New York Times reported this as a call for the destruction of the State of Israel when the phrase was translated as "wiped off the map".

        It seems strange that the world wanted the Mubarak regime, or the Gaddafi regine,(and now the Assad regime in Syria) to stand down, but that wasn't taken as wiping those countries off the map! One suspects the presence of some good propagandaists at work out there against Iran!

They were with him wherever he went, day or night. Hence the name "ABU SITTA." =Egypt (Bedouins) "Salman Abu Sitta "

    Even "Arafat", the most famous fakestinian and leader of the terrorist grup the  P.L.O, is not native to judea. He called himself a "Palestinian refugee" and claimed he was born in jerusalem ! BUT spoke
    Arabic with Egyptian dialect. He was born in 1929 Cairo, Egypt. He served in the Egyptian army, studied in the University of Cairo, and lived in Cairo until 1956 !

    -Professor Azmi Bishara(Arabic: عزمي بشارة)– a "palestinian arab"

    "There is no "palestinian nation" !
    when were there any Palestinians??? LOL
    until the end of the 19th century, Palestine was the south of "Greater Syria" another resent invention.
    there is only an arab nation !
    the word "palestine" its self is a colonial invention used by the romans in order to erase the jewish identity of judea and israel.
    even the "Palestinian National Charter" recognizes all the jews living in the region prior to the 1948 war as "palestinians" !
    its an intellectual fad, divorced from the concerns of uneducated people"

    -Zuheir Mohsen (Arabic: زهير محسن)- top p.l.o member responsible for damur massacre.

    "The "Palestinian people" does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. 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".."

    -Walid Shoebat (Arabic: وليد شويبات‎)-

    "As I lived in Palestine, everyone I knew could trace their heritage back to the original country their great grandparents came from. Everyone knew their origin was not from the Canaanites, but ironically, this is the kind of stuff our education included. The fact is that today's Palestinians are immigrants from the surrounding nations! I grew up well knowing the history and origins of today's Palestinians as being from Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Christians from Greece, muslim Sherkas from Russia, muslims from Bosnia, and the Jordanians next door. My grandfather, who was a dignitary in Bethlehem, almost lost his life by Abdul Qader Al-Husseni (the leader of the Palestinian revolution) after being accused of selling land to Jews. He used to tell us that his village "Beit Sahur " in Bethlehem County was empty before his father settled in the area with six other families..."

I even knew a couple in Khartoum whose son spoke with a strong American accent though she was 'BBC' english and his father had a scottish accent. The boy copied the accents of his class mates (at an American International school).

        How long has Hamas been around? Longer than "israel"? No, it was made as a response to the aggressions by europeans. The people who are called Palestinians are like the Native Americans here only they have united. As an American, I understand both sides. You cannot push people off the land they have lived on for generations and not expect them to fight back. If "israel" wants peace then they should stop building and return some land, if they dont want peace then they should just keep doing what they are doing. Its pretty simple. The arabs were there, then they were forced off their land so some europeans could live there and make a country, only now they are united and putting up a fight along with everyone else who shares their ethnicity or phenotype. Gotta give them credit. There are far more of them around than Cherokee or Seminoles

      LOL. If that was the case, Israel wouldn't ever threaten Iran or slightly think about attacking them. United States will be dragged into the war, as usual, by Israel. Americans will suffer thousands of casualties, lose billions of US taxpayers' money, lose credibility all over the world, and US economy will go further down. In the previous wars Americans got involved because of Israeli wars only harmed the USA, Israel just sat and watched, in fact they got sympathy and billions of dollars aid on top. It's a one way relationship in which Americans lose and Jews win at all times. Jews are playing the game carefully and using Americans as their puppets, with Israel as an "ally" who needs enemies!?

      @Johny. It is true that Israel had more wars than NY State in 400 years. Israel too wishes that its neighbors attacked it as often as Canada attacked NY State. Remember the Indian saying. You have to walk in the man's moccasins to understand.

      I agree. I have no problems with Israel, but if they take any aggressive action towards another country we had better not help in any way. If they start a war, let them handle the fallout all by themselves. We don't need to get involved – again.

      If the war remains between Israel and Iran, it would be great, let them fight without any external interventions. World shouldn't be dragged into WW3 because of Jewish violence. They attack their neighbours all the time, Iran never attacks anyone, yet they try to turn the table around and play the victims. Americans suffered to the extreme and gained far too many enemies due to Israel using them, there should be no more US support to Israeli violence. Without Israel as an "ally", US would be doing way better now with its economy in shape, its credibility in place, and in peace. Enough with Israeli games.

        Israel has never attacked another country.
        Syria, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Iraq, Egypt and Lebanon have attacked Israel repeatedly.
        Iran supplies weapons to Hezbollah and Hamas to attack Israel.

    “Iran is our close neighbor, just south of the Caucasus. Should anything happen to Iran, should Iran get drawn into any political or military hardships, this will be a direct threat to our national security,” -Dmitry Rogozin, Russia’s deputy prime minister and former envoy to NATO.

    In other words, if the insane Israelis attempt an illegal attack on Iran, they might possibly just get their assess handed to them. Frankly, I hope any nation or nations starting a war by illegally attacking another sovereign nation gets turned to glass. Great deterrent against starting war.

    The answers are yes and yes. Israel doesn't care about when the decision to go forward with production occurs. Why should they? Lunatics, sworn to the death of their nation are threatening to harvest the ultimate death weapon. They are merely following the Chinese proverb: It is best to kill the baby tiger in his crib, lest he grows up to consume you. The US would do well to heed the same wisdom and exterminate the vermin in control of Iran before the wreak havoc upon the free world.

      Iran has not started a war outside of their borders in my life time. (82 years) To attack them would cause a world wide disaster and possibly world war 3. We have no idea what they would do if attack. They have many alternatives that do not involve the straights of hormuze (?) It has been said that the best of plans fail after the first shot is fired!

    It is well within the power of the US to prevent such an attack. All the US has to do is tell Israel that if they attack, there will be no more financial aid from the US. We give them about 3 billion a year in direct military aid.
