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.

        To sthinker: Well there was an article where a rabbi was giving sermons to IDF troops right before the start of "Cast Lead". In his sermon he told the soldiers that Palestinians needed to be killed, even the women and children. He also said that G_D would be happy with them for doing these things. I don't know but it sounds ghoulish that a holy man would be calling for genocide.

    No matter how many hateful racist nonsense isspilled here the facts are difficult to argue with... Here are the facts:

    1. Israel recognized the right of each and every Arab state (including the still non-existing Palestinian state) to exist since 1948. Only two Arab states (Egypt and Jordan) recognized Israel.
    2. Israel offered peace to each and every one of its enemies since 1948. When Egypt and Jordan agreed to make peace with Israel peace agreement were signed and Israel complied with every word.
    3. One of four Israelis is an Arab. The number of Jews living in Palestinian controlled areas of the West Bank and Gaza is EXACTLY ZERO.
    4. The number of Arabs living in Israel as full fledged citizens increased TEN TIMES since 1948. The number of Jews in Iran DECREASED by 85 % and in the Arab states by 99%.
    5. Israel NEVER attacked any other country without being attacked first.
    6. Not a single UN Resolution was violated by Israel but complied with by the Arabs.

    Here is a challenge for the Jew-haters: Can you produce anything better than lies and insults to disprove these facts?

        The Palestinian lands you are claiming are being settled by Jewish settlers were lost to Israel when virtually all of the Arab states surrounding it attacked it and eventually lost the war, giving up swaths of territory in the process. The people settling it are also considered by Jews to be the extremists in their demographic. If I give you a choice of hippies that won't move off of lands they've been told not to settle and suicide-bombers, which would you choose?

        As far as Arab Israeli's go, you obviously have no idea what you're talking about. Go to Abu Gosh and talk to anyone on the street (its a large arab city next to Jerusalem that most people in the west don't even realize exists) and see what they say about Palestinians and the situation in general. I think you'd be somewhat suprised.

        Israel signed on to the Geneva Conventions of war. That means that it can not gain any land through armed struggle. In fact it has a lot of responsibility for the well being of the people under its occupation. Man you are dumb.

      • Thinker23

        The definition of "ILLEGAL" is "in violation of the law". As long as there is no law forbidding Jews to live in the West Bank, Gaza and Jerusalem but allowing the Arabs to live there Jewish settlements in these places are no less legal than the Arab settlements there. Is it clear enough?

        July 26, 2012 at 6:14 pm |
      • Thinker23

        It is true that Israel signed the Geneva Convention and it is true that it (as well as any other country) can not gain any land through armed struggle. Now you may consider that the West Bank was illegally taken by Transjordan through an armed struggle back in 1948, that Jordan gave up all claims to these lands and that there is an official internationally recognized border between Israel and Jordan placing ALL of the West Bank within Israeli borders.

        Israel recognized the RIGHT of Palestinian Arabs to have a state. NOT the state itself. Neither Israel nor anyone else can recognize something that DOES NOT EXIST. As long as the lands in question you believe to be "Palestinian" do not belong to ANY state there is no basis to the claim that the Arabs CAN live there while the Jews CAN NOT.

      Number two is not correct. If Israel has offered peace to all its neighbors since it was created then why did Israel send Jewish terrorists into Egypt to plant bombs and place the blame on Egypt? I think this was called the Lavon Affair. Seems like many of your facts are full of holes.

        It seems to me that you should use a dictionary to help you understand MEANING of some words. You'll be amazed to discover the meaning of the word "OFFER" as you'll realize that a REJECTED offer is null and void. For example, Israel could and did offer peace to all Arab states but the Arab states REJECTED Israeli peace offers making them null and void. One side can start and maintain a war but BOTH sides are necessary to make peace. As long as the Arabs prefer war over peace they will have what they ask for.

      Israel on the other hand allowed women in the military long before the US did.

      I find it somewhat suprising that people don't understand Israel's position; last time people targeted Jews on mass as the enemy of a state millions upon millions of Jew were slaughtered under the worst conditions imaginagable. I think its somewhat reasonable that they're a bit overprotective given the neighbourhood they live in.

    Israel needs to stop acting like innocent side and the victim. Israel does it all and then expects nothing to be done in return, naturally those countries respond to Israel's actions. It's like a bully attacking someone and then complaining when it's punched back. Israelis are trying to have one more of their enemies eliminated by the US at no cost to them, then receive sympathy and billions of US taxpayers' money as aid on top every year. Leave Jews and Arabs alone to deal with their own issues.

    When US gets involved in this war and unconditionally takes side with Israel, Americans need to realize that they become part of the war and an enemy of the other side which has consequences. You can't do that and then complain when you get attacked if you are not neutral. You can't contribute to terrorizing others and then call them terrorists when they respond to your actions. Americans need to wake up and remain neutral, it is essential for the wealth of Americans. The previous war, thanks to your so-called ally Israel, cost US society dearly as Americans suffered casualties, lost enormous amount of money, gained enemies, lost credibility throughout the world, their economy collapsed. With a friend like Israel, who needs enemies? They got you involved, had their main enemy eliminated, and just watched.. received sympathy and billions of dollars aid from US government on top. US is always always always the losing side in this relationship while Israel always wins and wants the status-quo to continue as a result. Again and again, wake up America!

    There was a time when I would have followed orders to defend against America's adversaries without question. Sadly if I were still in uniform I could not any more. I was an Officer and I have done the research. Almost every conflict post-Vietnam 1975, has been either the USA acting as a 'proxy police force' either covertly or overtly for the State of Israel. Everything from Kosovo/Bosnia up to Iraq/Afganistan and our covert proxy drone-war in Pakistan has benefited only one Country. That country is Israel. Oh it has also benefited the Saudis and the Kuwaitis whoare secretly in bed with Israel. All they care about is keeping the oil flowing out of the Middle East, that's America's #2 priority behind ensuring Israel's regional security. Well guess what? It's all un-raveling. Starting with Tunisia, Libya and Egypt people are starting to wake up that this whole thing is a huge scam. It's all about Saudi Oil and Israel's security and nothing more. Trust me. If we pulled 100% out of the Middle Ease meaning BOTH the Arabs and the Israelis left to their own devices just watch how fast compromise talks and regional security happens when Unckle Sam is out of the picture. Everything we tuch goes FUBAR. We need to worry about our own issues that those on the other side of the world.

        hey, i'm Ofek, from israel, I read alot of comments in here.
        there is some facts that you must need to know:
        1. Iran with nuclear weapons is bad not just for israel.
        2. israel don't want to attack Iran, we'll gain nothing believe me.
        3. the Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said "we will destroy israel", yes in those words exactly (for you it will sound like "ahbla halbve hadrbsklskdifjh", but read the translate)
        4. if Iran will get nuclear weapon, israel will attack, and guess what? we don't ask for help, we never did. don't get me wrong, we israelis thanks the americans people for helping us, but we're not asking for help, israel today is strong enough to deal with Iran alone, but don't you think it's just our problem, it's not.
        5. you may believe it and you may not, but that's the truth in here, Israel want peace. what do you think? we love to fight? we like to go to the army? no! , most of us just wanna go to some good college, have some fun. sadly, we can't.
        6. most of the muslims all over the world, live in a countries that oppressive them. (yes, just like the movie "the dictator") 7. Israel is the only democracy in the middle east, we are the only one in here who live the way you live, we have the rights you have, who grown on the same values of equality and freedom and we always seek for peace, but we will fight for those values againts everybody who will try to change them!
        8. later the two sections above me, muslims in israel get full rights, they can vote, they can demonstrate, they can live however they choose, if they will do that in syria they might be dead. Ops that has already happend.
        9. Despite everything I said, israel still have things to improve, just like everybody else.
        10. last thing that you must need to know is that I borned Jewish, grown in a religious kindergarten, not religious school and high school, served in the IDF. and today i'm atheist, i don't believe in god anymore. how is that relevant you ask? i'll tell you, atheist people are curious and check everything, until they find the truth, no matter how ugly it might be, and the truth of mine i already told you.

Iran with nuclear weapons is FAR less dangerous than Israel with them. Iran hasn't started and been the aggressor in ANY war for over 250 years!!! I wish I could say that for our friends the Israelis, or wars we started on their behalf and fought for them (with our taxpayer money we need for our roads and schools! SHAME). Last one was Saddam Hussein (or was it Gaddaffi? I can't keep count) Israel said he had WMDs, NO DOUBT! We're tired of the Israeli LIES! Go fight your own wars.

Killing scientists for political reasons is illegal. Please Israel don't drag us into another war. I know thats the road we're headed down. First it will be Syria because of the chemical weapons. 6 months later, we will attack Iran's nuclear facilities for Israel because they dont have long range stealth bombers capable of traveling across multiple borders nor do they have the bunker busting missle technology. This is all a bad dream coming true.

      Although US (above 300 millions) and Israel (5.5 million Jews and 1.5 million Arabs mostly Muslims) cooperate on the war against Islamic world terror (including terror perpetrated by Iran), yet all decisions both counties make are their own. Israel may point out the world danger comming from a nuclear Iran, but the US makes its own decisions according to its interests. To my own view point, the danger expected from nuclear Islamic dictatorship of Iran is not less dangerous to the world than was the danger from the German-Nazi dictatorship!

Israel is in revolt right now. Iran's government had their revolt in the past election, with millions of people shouting from their rooftops.

      Julio... For starters, Iran has every right to defend itself in case someone attacks it. For example, Iran had every right to fight back when Iraq attacked it some 20 years ago. On the other hand, Iran has shown ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to support its accusations that it was Israel behind the assassinations of Iranian scientists. Further, it was Iran that repeatedly threatened to "erase from the map" the Jewish State while Israel NEVER threatened to destroy any other state. Some supporters of Iran claim that Iran did not attack another country for 300 years. They somehow forget that Israel did not attack any other country during its entire history. Still further, Israel has absolutely no reasons to attack PEACEFUL Iran. If you believe that this is not the case you'll have no troubles to explain the benefits Israel will gain from such attack. Good luck!

Oh and I remember someone calling them land grabbers, this comment only proves how lazy we are becoming, Israel was attacked and they won. They won this land due to being attacked, then conquering their attackers. It has only been recently that after you win a war you then go in and spend tax payer money to rebuild for them, so you lose even when you win. Before this stupidity every country defeated in a war lost land, lets not pretend that we dont know this, oh maybe some don't, do some research its easy google it.

You see, Israeli nukes are the ONLY reason the Arabs did not try to destroy Israel again as they've done in 1948, 1967 and 1973. Israeli nukes are the ONLY reason there was no major war between Israel and the Arab states for the last 40 years. Israeli nukes saved and continue to save millions of Israeli and Arab lives.

        Based on your idea, if a nuke Israel prevented her from war, then a nuke Iran also can prevent another war in the middle east. US and other western countries supported Iraq for 8 years against Iran. At that time Iran hadn't a powerful Army, because of the revolution. For sure they can't stop Iran anymore, and it seems that they have to accept Iran in their nuke club. BTW, in the last 70 years, non of the nuke countries have had a war with other major powers, which the main reason is their nukes.

        Suppose if I rob your house , you will be always trying to find the chance to get back your house and property by any means . So By robbing your house with might and gun , mighty me would never feel safe.

If the US will stop supporting Israel then Israelis will have to stop using sophisticated, precise and very expensive American-made weapons and will switch to less sophisticated, less precise but no less effective alternatives. For example, instead of using a laser guided missile launched from a combat helicopter to destroy a room where terrorists are hiding they will use tanks and artillery to destroy the city block where the room with terrorists is located. WHO will be blamed for the results, in your opinion?

    who are the "palestinians" ?
    where did they come from ?

    Hamas Minister of the Interior and of National Security "Fathi Hammad" Says:
    "Half of the Palestinians Are Egyptians decent and the Other Half Are Saudis"


    "Allah be praised, we all have Arab roots, and every "Palestinian", in Gaza and throughout Palestine, can prove his Arab roots – whether from Saudi Arabia, from Yemen, or anywhere. we all can prove our origin. So where is your affection and mercy?
    Personally, half my family is Egyptian. We are all like that. More than 30 families in the Gaza Strip are called Al-Masri ["Egyptian"]. Brothers !, half of the Palestinians are Egyptians and the other half are Saudis ! ! !.
    Who are the ""Palestinians"" ?? We have many families called Al-Masri, whose roots are Egyptian. Egyptian! They may be from Alexandria, from Cairo, from Dumietta, from the North, from Aswan, from Upper Egypt. We are Egyptians !. We are Arabs !. We are Muslims !. We are a part of you.
    Allah Akbar. All praise to Allah. Allah Akbar. How can you keep silent, oh Muslims, when the people of Gaza are dying? You watch from the sidelines without providing them with the simplest thing (fuel), which you (arab countries) give to the West for the most meager price

      Please tell me who is getting anything cheap right now. The price of Oil is outrageous right now. The west makes other nations very rich to bad these nations do not share the wealth with thier people. I am not trying to be argumentative but the truth is all normal people are poor today. God bless and I pray for peace in the middle east but not at the expense of any loss of Human life. We all deserve to live in peace and we all deserve to exist and have God given freedoms.

        Very true but stupid politicians do not think like that. For them war are just a tool and as they do not do the fighting themselves, they care not how many are killed from where! Also there are always few people from all countries who are nasty and trouble makers and usually these people stare up hate between nations for their own benefit!

    If it's an open war then he wouldn't mind revealing the 'hard evidence' linking Iran to it... Without proof it's only warmongering. It's not like Israel makes any effort to diplomacy between the two so there is really nothing to lose.

      I believe the proof is in a publicised speech where Isreal and the united states would be wiped off the map and Isreal was named the little satan and the us the great satan. I just cant imagine why anyone would suspect them of terrorism and acts of war, seriously the leaders of Iran and syria have attacked and terrorised Israel before why is this so hard to believe. I think the whole world has blinders on. Israel gives up land for peace and yet no peace. I cannot say what the people of these countries believe because they are treated poorly, I just read about a man being beaten and a woman beheaded in these two peace loving countries, oh and if the leader of syria will kill his own people, he will kill anyone. The truth is so plain to see and yet the world lives in blindness to the truth, and this is one of the signs of end time prophecy, the other sign is allso found in the bible in the book of ezekiel. This prophecy foretells Israel becoming a nation again and that they would return from many nations after a long period of exile. This prophecy came true in 1948 and it was written thousands of years ago. I pray that all who read this will know that I love you and so does God. In love I tell you never believe or trust blindly but find out for yourself. Their really is such joy and happiness at knowing with all your heart you found truth. Do true research about the news reports and examine your hearts and minds. I hope you find faith, hope and love and not anger and hatred. God Bless you all and know that I speak out of Love.

        erm... when exactly was this supposed attack on Israel by Iran? it never happened. You talk about truth and all that malarkey, yet you're clueless. Iran has NEVER attacked Israel, ever! They have called US and Israel satanist regimes, yes, but look into why? you talk about governments hurting their own people, the US government gave money to Bin Laden, and what happened? the worst thing to happen in the western world since WWII, 9/11 and thousands of innocent people lost their lives. I'm an Iranian, so I know how disgraceful the Iranian government is, and how much they need to be replaced by a democratic government, but, the reason why Iran has this government is the UK and US, they removed our democratically elected President in the 50s because he nationalised the oil, therefore oil was more expensive for foreign countries, that's why they hate the US so much, and if you ask me, they have every right to.
        Now, Israel... they HAVE NUCLEAR WEAPONS, they have made them illegally, and refuse the IAEA entry into their facilities to confirm it. The whole world know they have it, yet no one is bothered?! it can't be one rule for one and one rule for another. Israel have threatened Iran more than Iran has threatened Israel, and the worst thing is that they use something as horrific as the holocaust to win people over... I'm sorry... but the holocaust will never happen again, ever, the world wouldn't allow it, but they think "oh how do we win support off people? I KNOW PITY, TERROR, HORROR!" and it's DISGUSTING! Iran would NEVER start another holocaust, as messed up as the government is, they would never do that, the Iranians wouldn't allow them.
        So all in all... which of these countries have invaded another? which country has started a war with another? the US and Israel have, but contrary to popular belief Iran hasn't!! I suggest you do some research before you talk such nonsense because a 22 year old has just schooled you... shame!!

        Sahar... Iran supported and continues to support Hezbollah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other similar organizations and it ATTACKED Israel multiple times using these terrorist organizations. If Cuba launched thousands of Russian-made rockets into Florida and if Russian government supplied these rockets, trained the technicians and soldiers to use and service these rockets, paid all expenses then the US would blame Russia for the attacks, would not it?

        The fact is that Israel NEVER attacked any other country without being attacked first. The fact is that it was Israel who recognized each and every Arab state (including the still non-existing Arab state in Palestine) since 1948 and it were the Arabs who refused and continue to refuse to recognize Israel declaring that nothing short of destruction of the Jewish State will satisfy them. Fucts are pretty tough to argue with, bro...

        Sahar, Iranian agents blew up a Jewish Community Center in Buenos Aires some years ago. It killed scores. Argentina has outstsanding arrest warrants for a number of Iranian nationals included Rafsanjani. Two years before that Iranian agents bombed the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires. Thats an act of war under the Geneva Conventions and Israel has considred itself in an open war with Iran since then. Peres's remarks are nothing new.

        Ben Gurion was quoted in The Jewish Chronicle in 1967 on his view of Pakistan:

        The world Zionist movement should not be neglectful of the dangers of Pakistan to it. And Pakistan now should be its first target, for this ideological state is a threat to our existence. And Pakistan, the whole of it, hates the Jews and loves the Arabs. This lover of the Arabs is more dangerous to us than the Arabs themselves. For that matter, it is most essential for the world Zionism that it should now take immediate steps against Pakistan.

        Whereas the inhabitants of the Indian peninsula are Hindus whose hearts have been full of hatred towards Muslims, therefore, India is the most important base for us to work from against Pakistan. It is essential that we exploit this base and strike and crush Pakistanis, enemies of Jews and Zionism, by all disguised and secret plans.

I accede that India is not utopia and we have our share of issues with a#$ h#$%s of all religion, politicians exploiting people, but with all that we generally are more peaceful and happy than most could imagine.

        All religions have started wars... the Christians killed Jews in the Holocaust, the Jews killed muslims in Palestine, and continue to do so but because they're an allie of the western world, you don't see it, they're also responsible for the hatred and war between Turkey and Armenia... no one is innocent, all religions lead to war, because every religion has a different god. the problem with Islam is that it has a rule for everything, even with which foot one must enter the bathroom, it's ridiculous, but all in all it is a peaceful religion, like all religions, but some extremist psychos read the quran and take it all out of context because it has been translated to their language or they read between the line (which you're not supposed to do). if you asked me, religion should be wiped off the planet, the world would be so much more peaceful. religion is reaching the end of it's lifeline. How can one believe in something that has proven to be wrong?!
        people need to start having faith in eachother and not some all-right-doing-being. they don't exists, we all do things that are wrong and right, take responsibility and move on. we should spend more time fighting poverty and hunger and not each other, worship the world and don't ruin it because some plonker believe in something different, especially when you're all wrong!

        Sahar – Why can you not also include that for every "Palestinian" (Saudi, Egyptian, Jordanian) that has been killed by the IDF, 50 Muslims have been killed by OTHER MUSLIMS?

        Why was an Arab Spring needed? Because every Arab nation (Note I did not say MUSLIM – Indonesia, Malaysia are not part of this – I said ARAB) has been led by ruthless killers for the last 50 years! Iraq, Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria, Syria etc – why are there so many ARAB muslims who no longer live in the country of their birth? Because they are afraid of OTHER MUSLIMS

        In truth, the world wide ARAB community has used the "Palestinians" to hide that very fact. If peace was made and Palestine did exist as you "dream" of, then there would be nothing to hide the killing of muslims by muslims. So you USE THE "PALESTINIANS" to cover up MASS MURDER and condemn the Israelis while you fear for your own family's lives and so run to live ... where??? IN THE WEST! In Denmark and Canada and the United States and in England and then from there you DARE to accuse Israel of atrocities while you work and eat and live in the safety of countries that you then accuse of helping your "enemy".

        A lot of the information posted here is incorrect. Israel has attacked numerous countries many times on the pretense of defensive purposes. Remember the US liberty? 1967, it attacked a US ship. Isarel knew that American radio signals were intercepted by the Soviet Union and that the Soviets would certainly inform Eygpt of that fact, so they tried to sink the ship to justify for intially attacking in the 6 day war. Israel did not want America to know it was attacking Syria. 1982 lebanon war. Also, Israel has been doing terrorist attacks in Iran, not the other way around. Lavon affair, and king david hotel bombing and many more incidents. What about Zealotry? 1st century! Remember Sicarii, gush emunim, massacre of Deir Yassan. Massacre of Qibya, (Arial Sharon commander) . There are many many more. So lets not compare "terrorism." Let's get some things straight, terrorism kills 1000 people per year, peanut butter allergies, cigs, alcohol, kill 1000 times more. Iran has never attacked another country in over 200 years. Hezbollah is just for defense purposes, it is not an offensive army. Terrorism is simply, the resistance of the occupied people against a colonial power. George Washington, Martin Luther King, Patrick Henry, and many other people we consider heros today were considered terrorist in previous decades. Colonial powers use violence, and the only way to counter that is violence. The term terrorist was born during the French Revolution, "The great Terror." The government enforcing it was labeled terrorist. So you can see how the term is subjective.

      I never said Iran attacked Isreal in the past. What I did say is that their was a war but to be precise it was called the 6 day war and the nations that attacked Israel were The united arab republic(Egypt), syria,and Jordan and this occured in June of 1967. The Palestinians are really from Jordan and Jordan did not want them back. No one schooled me I actually do know what I am talking about. I do believe that the Iranian people are innocent of their government as we are in the US. Unfortunately to many people do not know how to recognize communists. I should have included the names of the countries involved in the six day war but I could not remember so I checked back on my research. I want you to know the only reason that so many nations are nervous about Iran having nukes is the current regime. The leader of Iran absolutely did give a speech, I watched it, about bringing about war and us and isreal being satans. He has also stated that this will bring about the return of the Mahdi ( I think thats what he called him) I am a christian and I want my messiah to come back too but I would never force God's hand. I will be praying for you for I have a bad feeling that all this nonsense will get worst before it gets better. Please know while I fear the decisions of the Iranian government not for me but for all who live in the middle east and dont get me started on syria( way worste and pending problem) I would stay away from their if I were you. Stay safe and know that when I speak of Iran it is not of its citizens, most of us know how it is to not agree with your govt. and not all people in the middle east are terrorists, christian haters or jew haters but unfortunately there are alot of people in the world that are. God bless and stay safe in these hatred filled days. God will take care of all the hate for us.

      As usual, lies of the muslim and an attempt to change the wording. Islam ran up against the true religions of peace, Hinduism and more specifically buddhism. Once they realized that compared to those religions, especially the latter, it would be really hard to convert or keep people, then they decided to start calling themselves the religion of peace. Sort of like, if you say it often enough others might actually believe it, and so might yourselves. Islam is the religion of violence, intolerance, mysogyny. Basically a terrible political ideology that should be outlawed.

    We have wasted so much time in confronting rouge nations like Iran, who are now experiencing the pain of threatening sovereign nations and continued support of global terrorism. Now like a child who will have their sweets taken away, they try to threaten other civil nations with threats.

    The realities are, Iran will either need to bow down and respect the civilized world or be forced into being a civilized government, similar to being put into the naughty corner in nursery. The Iranian people, especially the youth need to stand-up and not allow this theocratic lead government spoil their way of life. The Iranian leaders are selfish and power hungry in a world that has changed massively and need to respect the new way of life.

    If the Iranian government cannot align itself to a democratic way of life, then the youth of Iran must get them out. Life is good with such governments removed from power, as they are irresponsible and self focused. Do not let the realities of life be spoiled by power hungry theocratic dictators.

        Jason, I have soaked my head in the river and now have even more clear thought. Thanks for the recommendation.

        This is not about a religious preference, its about just good old plain common sense and hope of avoiding another war that will be bigger than anything you have ever experienced in your life and not totally unnecessary. Be honest with yourself, as you are obviously trying to put this in the context of a Israel vs. Iran thing, but its bigger than you seem to realize. Its really about power and an approach by Iran, who seem desperate to have, but as I pointed out before, using bullying tactics to achieve. A real leader gains leadership by example and Iran has not set any example that the world can believe.

        Plain and simple, we need to get the world back to a peaceful state, as its falling apart with dictatorships such as Iran trying to gain a place in the "responsible" league. The Iranian government, be honest about your desires, let your people be free, set an example, don't threaten sovereign nations and then we can talk about being influential.

        Jason, instead of trying to insight hate and blame, help insight working together and maybe we can help make the world a more happy and peaceful place. Otherwise, it will only be something you honestly do not want to experience.

      I am amazed at how blind so many people are I sure hope that none of the uninformed live in the United States of America. I watch the news everyday whether it be local or international. So many of you miss the reports of missiles coming from Gaza to Israel. I dont live in Israel and right is right and wrong is wrong. Israel for the most part does not shoot back but they have begun to shoot back recently. If someone sent a rocket just once into america I would say lets attack them not once but until they learn to never aim rockets at the US of A. The news does not even hide the fact that the Israelis are attacked frequently so how in the world can someone say they are the ones at fault. Either too many of you do not watch the news or you have selective hearing. I must add if someone bombed a bus in the United States and the only nation threatening you is Iran and their terrorist allies common sense would say who did it. I am also floored that anyone would say they need to follow international law especially if you live in the US. The UN is right now trying to implement an international law that will affect the citizens rights, I wonder how many of you will still be saying that Israel is not following International law. when your rights, priviledges, freedom and personal property are taken from you. The UN was never meant to be a global government and thats what is happening, again watch the news. All those condemning Israel and backing governments that kill their own people and threaten us as well as Israel just might see what its like, I know in my life that when im judgemental that I usually pay a price for buring my head in the sand. I have a feeling that the posts in support of Iran or syria are actually written by citizens of that country. One last thing how can Israel be occuppying palestinian territory when their was no such thing as these people when the un and other countries voted to give this land back to the jews. They first appeared after a war when Isreal won a war and thier home country would not allow them to go home. I am amazed at how many people give an opinion on something they know so little about. Next time you call them occupiers imagine that your neighbors house ends up in foreclosure, they then claim your house and beat you up every day to make you give it to them. Would you defend yourself or give your broke bully neighbor your house. I would not and if Iwere to witness this happening it would be my responsibility to help assure that justice is done.

        Dear Sarah,

        Thank you for this piece of propaganda. I guess your primary source, as a "citizen of the US of A", is Fox News. For a lot of what you are writing is a) misrepresentation of the past, b) a misrepresentation of the many UN resolutions and c) a misrepresentation of the day to day life both in Israel as in Gaza. My advice: stop reading and/or listening to the propaganda machine and start reading and listening to independent sources. Israel is trying to neutralize Iran for a very long time, for a various of reasons. With the US in an election stalemate, the Security Council being what the Security Council does – useless – Israel seeks its oppertunity. The comments of Peres regarding refugees is both sickening and inhumanitarian, which says a in my opinion about his state of mind and inconsequence of this, the state of mind of Israel. Remember Peres is considered a "moderate".

        Dear Michael, everyone knows about the 6 day war and the palestinians are from Jordan and no I did not get this from fox news I do my own research because their is no news agency on television going to tell you a complete truth they all have an agenda, do you get your info from cnn or do you research for yourself the happenings of today and the happenings in history. You see in 1967 the united arab republic, jordan and syria thought that if they attacked Israel than they would have their land but what happened was a miracle, Israel won and gained land from that war. If anyone has a problem with winning land in a war you did not start, lets look at land in the us. We did start wars and take lands do you really want to give your land to someone else, think about that. I know so much more but I wont waste my time, I have respect for your opinion but never trust any ones information seek out your own just as I have done. I pray that you are lead to the truth by your research and not some news agency, they tell us what to look for and give thier oppinion it is our job to do our own research, if someone told you on the news that is that california fell into the sea would you just believe it or would you find out for yourself. Yours lovingly in Christ Jesus Sarah

If there is a god he gave up on humanity and moved on to another planet in another galaxy of the cosmos long ago, leaving this Earth to rot and eventually be burned up when the Sun turns into a Red Giant star some 4 million years from now........

        The please explain why the dead sea scrolls while having other books allso have the books included in the bible and they say what the bible says. Here is an end time prophecy Israel became a nation after how many years? this was prophecied to happen in the end times and guess what no other nation has came into being in one day. The bible said that Israel would again become a nation in one day. Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, thats been happening for years, their has been uprisings of people against thier leaders and civil wars, prophecy. Here is something that hasnt happened yet but is prophecied to happen and no it does not say how. Ezekiel wrote of the destruction of demascus in the end times. In ezekiel it allso has a prophecy of the war of gog and magog and its allies. It is interesting to note that the nations are Russia, Syria and I cant remember the rest and like many people you will ignore the information I have share with you but thats ok. When it happens if in this lifetime because no one knows when this will occur, but it probably will occur in our lifetime. When you see this happen remember what I told you and that you can still turn to Jesus for we are all invited to accept salvation through grace by faith and dont worry unlike the world He will take you as you are and His love will change you it did me.

      Getting very frustrated with the constant negative comments. Please, let's all be positive and hope for better things to come. If Iran dares push its luck, along with Syria, this will provide the world with what has been needed over that last 10 years and the balance will be restored. Israel is just trying to live in a rough neighborhood and doing what is required to ensure a safe neighborhood. When you have a number of bullies in the "hood" , then you need to adjust and play the same game to survive. Nothing wrong with that.

    Israel doesn't have to let the IAEA inspect not does the IAEA have any right to even ask to inspect.
    Iran is a signatory to the 'Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons' and therefore is bound by law to allow inspections (which it violates).
    Being a signatory to the 'Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons' allows a state substantial benefits which Israel has decided to forfeit by not being a signatory.
    It is absolutely a fabrication to say that Israel is any way obliged by law to allow IAEA inspectors into the country even.

        That is not a fair statement. We all have right to our opinions and that does not mean you are kkk. I am not fond of any of the presidents that follow Reagan and most of them are white. In the us we have presidential elections and we vote for who best represents us to the world and how well we think they will lead our nation. The press really has pushed this idea of if you do not support president Obama and his policies than you are racist. Since when has expressing your point of view of a politician make you a racist. I think we have all lost our minds because most politicians look down on us no matter our race. They think we are stupid and at times they are right, like now. A racist by definition is someone that hates another human being based on skin color, religion, nationality anotherwords to hate someone with no basis or reason. To disagree with a politician and to be against his idea of how to lead the us is not the definition of racism. answer this why did you accuse him of being a racist is it because he holds a different belief than your own, for you must realise in order for you to be correct in this accusation than you would have to know him personally. Let's discuss things and not throw around accusations, for instance how will you answer this keep in mind that I have not shared my race.

  45. You relax

    People can get very emotional in these forums. Folks, cool down. There are no bad guys or good guys in this world. There is only national interest and self preservation (in power). Nobody is saint or evil. The Syrian regime will do whatever it takes to hang to power, the Iranians will do the same; The US and Russia will continue managing their interests openly or covertly, Arabs will continue blaming Israel for all their grief (and to direct attention elsewhere) and Israel will continue doing what it believes is necessary for its national security. In the end it is all very logical. Emotion is an artifact the politicians and media introduce to mobilize the masses. So if you are going to take sides, take the side that is least likely to stone you, hang you, bomb you, torture you or shoot you in the back of the head. I know what side I chose and have no illusions about good vs evil. It is as simple as that.

        New, More Dangerous Hindu Extremist Groups Emerge in India

        Christians concerned as rightwing factions splinter to form militant outfits.
        PUNE, India, October 29 (CDN) — After more than a decade of severe persecution, India’s Christian minority is growing increasingly concerned over the mushrooming of newer and deadlier Hindu extremist groups.

        Gone are the days when Christians had to watch out only for the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (World Hindu Council) and its youth wing, Bajrang Dal, which are closely linked with the most influential Hindu extremist umbrella organization, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). With voter support faltering for the RSS’s political wing, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), moderate and extremist sections within the Hindu nationalist movement are blaming each other, and militant splinter groups have emerged.

        Claiming to be breakaway factions of the RSS, new groups with even more extreme ideology are surfacing. The Abhinav Bharat (Pride of India), the Rashtriya Jagran Manch (National Revival Forum), the Sri Ram Sene (Army of god Rama), the Hindu Dharam Sena (Army for Hindu Religion) and the Sanatan Sanstha (Eternal Organization) have launched numerous violent attacks on Christian, Jews and Muslim minorities.

        I am sorry to hear that you have had bad experiences with christians but you need to know that not all christians are the same flavor. therefore let me share with you some recent discoveries, the dead sea scrolls, noahs ark, the seal of the city of david,caiphas ossouary,silver scrolls with bible passages, pilate inscription found in ceasara and I could go on. My point is their are christians that mean well but when they are angry or feel deeply about a subject it can get ugly but that is not unlike unbelievers. I know many christians and we would never commit a terrorist act or intentionally harm anyone no matter what they believe. On a personal note I turn my cheek add nauseum and what I get in return is allways to my harm. I have lost so much in my life and I could never put that much abuse and heartache in a post. I guess most would think where is your God well Ill tell you in 2010 I had a relapse of anorexia, bolemia and self hatred, i was 86 lbs. and I knew I would die but because of the torture and pain of life I did not care. One sunday night in September I met Jesus and I have never felt so much love and peace in my entire life. I will share one thing he told me and that was that I was saved by grace through faith and that his grace was sufficient for me and he required nothing from me. For some reason I was given the knowledge that some christians like to point out all that a lost person is doing wrong and this is not the right way to lead someone to the truth of the bible and the truth of Jesus Christ. You see God is big on the free will thing he does not want us to scare people into loving him. Jesus wants us to come to him of our own free will because we have at some point realised that Jesus is the messiah. Christians arent scary at leat not true christians( The people that picket funerals are not true christians and their is no love and mercy in their actions) a true christian will love you and pray for you to come to know the truth. A true christian will not scream in your face because as followers of Christ we are to love kindly, show justice and practice mercy. I pray that you read this because maybe you will see what I do and that is I find it funny how the whole world is turning against christians and Jews. If you were to have told me in october of 2001 that our nation would make a big deal about Islam being peaceful and the christians are the enemy because of their hatred and Israel would be condemned for defending itself against terrorists, I would never have believed it. It really makes me want to cry because I fear that so many will believe this propaganda just like the bible says they will. I will never understand how our country can celebrate Islam as peaceful after so many people were murdered by radical religious beliefs, the whole nation turned to God after this happened and before the memorial is put up our nation no longer sees the terrorists nations in the middle east a threat but view christians and jews as the evil threat. Common sense is not working here but spiritual blindness is, please do some research about the archeological finds that prove the bible, then read the new testament because the old testament is for bible scholars that know the historical background for the things that occurred in that time period and it is basically for the Jews for God knew they would not realise the messiah is Christ Jesus and they are still living under the 1st covenant. The new testament is for the gentiles and after you read it start watching the news and current events that are happening right now because time is short and Jesus does not want any one to be lost and neither do I, please do not take my word for it seek the truth and you will find it, that is if you seek with an open heart and mind. I love each and every person in the world because Jesus put it in me to love all. Yes people walk on me and treat me unkindly most of the time but in my heart I pray that one day they will realise and know that I could have acted as they did but I did not because I want my actions to give glory to God, because after all he made me and if I am good than it only because he made me that way. Have a blessed life and I pray that you allways feel loved and safe.

    India is playing a double game with Americans in Iran as the article rightly points out. We are also aware of the other dirty games India is playing in the region...financing terrorists who are killing US/NATO/Pakistani troops ....undermining democracies, paying off some factions of talibans protection money so they won't do another Mumbai attack. India may pretend to drape itself in an American flag but it will never fool the world that the biggest threat to American interests in Asia and Middle East is India and their obsolete policies.

        The Hindu Dharam Sena has become especially terrifying for Christians and Jews in Jabalpur. Between 2006 and 2008, Jabalpur was plagued by at least three anti-Christian/Jew attacks every month, according to The Caravan magazine. In the western state of Gujarat and other parts of the country, the Rashtriya Jagran Manch has also violently attacked Christians and jews and Muslims, according to news website Counter Currents.

    Israel is correct in assigning blame for the attack in Bulgaria on Hizbullah and Iran. The attack was carried out on the anniversary of the Hizbullah and Iranian attack on the Jewish Community Center in Buenos Aires. It is clear Hizbullah and Iran wish to murder all Jews. Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East. Israel is the only country in that part of the world that provides for freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and freedom of assembly.

Was that not open war? killing in a foreign land and authorizing the use of deadly force which is against the sovereignty of the United Arab Emirates mandate according to law. Israelis have been killing palestinians for their land since I can remember studying about this, it's genocide yet Israel has a firm grip over United States interests and that's why their still alive. I don't hate Jews because I have close friends who happen to be Jew and they are good people but Israelis in general tend to be a hating race, just because Hitler did something awful doesn't give you the right to kill another race or religion.

    Let's see. Most of the comments are hostile towards Israel, not terribly surprising from the left. Israel, exactly as President Peres stated, is not in a 'secret war' with Iran, but is being attacked in the open on many fronts by it.

    The terrorist attacks sponsored by Iran, the threat of Syria losing it's chemical weapons to Hezbollah (or using them directly on Israel) are all obviously a clear and present danger to Israelis and Jews worldwide.

    Yet somehow, the majority of (supposedly) intelligent people reading this publication still believe Israel is somehow at fault. Of course it's all Israel's fault–who else could you blame? If I may offer a suggestion, try reading the news on a couple of Israeli websites. You might learn something about the truth.

      The majority of intelligent people form opinion based on fact. The threat to Israel is overblown and mostly their own fault. Netanyahu has managed in both his terms as PM to derail peace talks because Likud can not hold power in peacetime. They require a frightened populace to maintain power.

      As for Israel doing nothing and killing no one, what hole do you put your head in?

      Let's just ignore the tens of thousands of Palestinian civilians killed by bulldozers, checkpoint gunfire, and stray fire during the invasion of Gaza. How can anyone ignore the killing of scientists in their OWN country, the assassination of Iranian and Syrian citizens in Germany and Bahrain? Should we forget the poisoning of a Saudi diplomat not long ago? Or perhaps we should forget when they had their people in the US discussing how KILLING OBAMA would be good for Israel whikle they loosed SPIES on their greatest ally with zero regard for mutual respect with the US.

      Israel has become a rogue nation. The US has protected for 60 years because of the Holocaust. Unfortunately the Israeli populace has become frightened of the world thanks to a Likud party that feeds them fear and conflict. We have received 3000 coffins in New York, 5000 coffins from Iraq, 2000 coffins from Afghanistan, 255 coffins from Beirut, and god knows how many we aren't made aware of with the special forces. At one time we received valuable intelligence from Mossad when so many Russian Jews had connections, and the Cold War required intel. For almost 20 years we have received nothing in return, and when we ask Israel for reasonable things (like continuing a settlement ban) Netanyahu lectures us like ISRAEL is the big dog and we were the poodle.

      There comes a time when people must ask themselves what a future allied with Israel looks like for the USA. Right now, without working for peace and desperately wanting to attack Iran to keep Likud in power...the US will see itself involved in a war it did not ask for and does not want....and more of OUR dead bodies...all for the sake of a spit of land and a people so afraid of the world they keep re-electing a blood-thirsty Jewish jihaddist like Netanyahu.

        Your stereotyping of all Israelis is very inaccurate (and very unhelpful to the world). Most Israelis are innovative, productive, intelligent people, who only dream of peace. Check out all the Israelis speaking on TED and contributing to society in so many countless ways .Your political "analysis" is also extremely one-sided–taking specific events out of context to reinforce your rather extreme viewpoint, instead of looking at the totality of the situation. You look at the history of the middle east conflict and conclude that "Israel is a rogue nation?" Please open your mind and heart, let's try to minimize anger and negativity and move towards peace and brotherhood, so that real solutions become possible

        Why Golda Meir was right
        Hürriyet/Daily News, August 23, 2011 Burak Bekdil.

        It has been more than two and a half years since Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdo?an told to Israeli President Shimon Peres’s face, “You (Jews) know well how to kill.” Prime Minister Erdo?an has also declared more than a few times that the main obstacle to peace in this part of the world is Israel, once calling the Jewish state “a festering boil in the Middle East that spreads hate and enmity.” In this holy month of Ramadan full of blood on Muslim territories, let’s try to identify who are the ones who know well how to kill.
        > As the Syrian death count clicks every day to come close to 2,000, the Turkish-Kurdish death count does not stop, already over 40,000 since 1984, both adding to the big pool of blood called the Middle East. Only during this Ramadan, the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK’s, death toll has reached 50 in this Muslim Kurds vs. Muslim Turks war. This excludes the PKK casualties in Turkey and in northern Iraq due to Turkish military retaliation since they are seldom accurately reported.Let’s speak of facts.
        Sudan is not in the conventional Middle East, so let’s ignore the genocide there. Let’s ignore, also, the West Pakistani massacres in East Pakistan (Bangladesh) totaling 1.25 million in 1971. Or 200,000 deaths in Algeria in war between Islamists and the government in 1991-2006.
        But a simple, strictly Middle East research will give you one million deaths in the all-Muslim Iran-Iraq war; 300,000 Muslim minorities killed by Saddam Hussein; 80,000 Iranians killed during the Islamic revolution; 25,000 deaths in 1970-71, the days of Black September, by the Jordanian government in its fight against the Palestinians; and 20,000 Islamists killed in 1982 by the elder al-Assad in Hama. The World Health Organization’s estimate of Osama bin Laden’s carnage in Iraq was already 150,000 a few years earlier.
        In a 2007 research, Gunnar Heinsohn from the University of Bremen and Daniel Pipes, director of the Middle East Forum, found out that some 11 million Muslims have been violently killed since 1948, of which 35,000, (0.3 percent) died during the six years of Arab war against Israel, or one out of every 315 fatalities. In contrast, over 90 percent who perished were killed by fellow Muslims. According to Mssrs.
        Heinsohn and Pipes, the grisly inventory finds the total number of deaths in conflicts all over the world since 1950 numbering around 85 million. Of that, the Muslim Arab deaths in the Arab-Israeli conflict were at 46,000 including 11,000 during Israel’s war of independence. That makes 0.05 percent of all deaths in all conflicts, or 0.4 percent of all Arab deaths in the Arab-Israeli conflict.
        In another calculation ignoring “small” massacres like the one that goes on in Syria and other deaths during the Arab Spring, only Saddam’s Iraq, Jordan, the elder al-Assad’s Syria, Iran-Iraq war, the bin Laden campaign in Iraq, the Iranian Islamic revolution and the Turkish-Kurdish conflict caused 1.65 million Muslim deaths by Muslims compared to less than 50,000 deaths in the Arab-Israeli conflict since 1950, including fatalities during and after Operation Cast Lead which came after the Heinsohn-Pipes study. For those who don’t have a calculator ready at their desks, allow me to tell: 50,000 is three percent of 1.65 million.
        Golda Meir, the fourth prime minister of Israel, or rather the “Mother of Israel,” had a perfectly realistic point when she said that peace in the Middle East would only be possible “when Arabs love their children more than they hate us

    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.
