Can Israel Trust the Big Power with Iran?

(source DEBKAfile's)

The weeklong US-Israel marathon in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv ending Thursday, July 30 was the platform for the Obama administration's first unveiling of a new US diplomatic-military program for Iran and its nuclear threat. The new approach consists of three steps for thwarting Iran's drive for a nuclear bomb:

1. Diplomatic engagement as far as it will go. The American officials assured Israel they were aware of the diminishing chances of this track succeeding, but the US administration is still determined to give it a chance up until early September. (Delay and procrastination)

2. If diplomacy fails, Washington will embark on the phased introduction of increasingly harsh sanctions against Iran, such as an embargo on exporting refined oil products including gasoline to Iran and a blockade on its sea ports. (More procrastination attempt. Never has worked and will not work now!)

3. If Iran continues to forge ahead with its nuclear and missile development, the US will resort to its military options. It is reported that the American visitors shared with Israeli leaders their specific plans of actions with details of the resources they planned to wield. (Let us hope that the big power has prepared a big stick!)

Gates and Jones wound up their presentation by stating unambiguously: Iran is a big power issue and it behoves the United States as the leading world power to handle it. So leave it to us and act like an American ally and friendly government. The role they assigned Israel was to leave its military option on the table in order to keep Tehran under pressure.

Good news is that Israel is not alone in the field against the Islamic Republic and has been relieved by the American plan of action of the need to resort to unilateral military action.

But the intelligence estimates the US and Israel traded in their talks this week differ on Iran's timeline for assembling nuclear warheads and devices. By asking Israel to leave the Iranian nuclear threat to the United States, Gates and Jones were also telling Israel to accept US intelligence's longer estimate of this timeline. This might in the long run turn out to be inimical to Israel's security interests.

(Most of us have already forgotten, but we should not, the hopelessness the United States displayed during the hostage crisis at the time of Iranian revolution. Must Israel trust the US after the inept and useless attempts it made to stop North Korea’s nuclear program and almost fatalistic acceptance of the nuclear rogue state? Yes, it would be nice if the US is able to stop the Iranian threat to the world but, considering the US performance record, can Israel allow the continuation of the existential threat to Jewish state?)

Zionist Newspaper for IDF Soldiers. For the first time, IDF soldiers will receive not only the left-of-center newspapers Yediot Acharonot and Maariv, but also the more nationalistic Makor Rishon newspaper identified with pro-Land of Israel values. After a long and protracted struggle the IDF (Israel Defense Forces) has agreed to include Makor Rishon among the Friday newspapers it buys for its soldiers. (Strangely, propagating Jewish national integrity is not popular among the commanding staff of Israel’s army! Shouldn’t solders know what they sacrificing their lives for?)

PA Declared of Self-Victimisation Policy. The Fatah party has prepared a document at its convention in Bethlehem that reads: ''the Fatah will continue to sacrifice its own victims until all of Jerusalem is returned to the Palestinians.''

Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak

For many years, WW3 between 7 countries has been simmering in central Africa, in Congo. The civil war ended brutally in Sri Lanka not long ago and is already forgotten. But world is only preoccupied with the tiny Jewish state and pro-actively undermining its right to exist and its sovereignty!

Is Israel a Suicidal Democracy? Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman responded to Arab MK Ahmed Tibi’s comments calling for Jews to be removed from Judea and Samaria: “Israel needs to decide if it is a protective democracy or a suicidal democracy”, hinting that Arab-Israeli incitement against the state must end. (The incitement of self-hating Jews against Israel must also be stopped!)

Realising the Reality. Attempting once again to mediate between the rival PA factions, King Abdullah wrote in a message to Mahmoud Abbas that at present it would be impossible to create a PA state, even if the entire world were to unite in support of the effort, due to the current divisions in PA society. (People say that Israel must face the reality on the ground. But the true reality is that Palestinians are a fake nation and they must not be allowed to occupy Jewish land!)

Russian Secret Service Helped Hizballah. A special unit of the Russian Federal Security Service - FSB, commissioned by Hizballah's special security apparatus earlier this year, was responsible for the massive discovery of alleged Israel spy rings in Lebanon in recent months. This indicates that the Russian agency, which specializes in counterespionage, is engaged for the first time in anti-Israel activity in the service of an Arab terrorist organization.

Is It also Fault of Israel? A blast at Gaza wedding wounded more than 80 Gazas. A bomb detonated while the family of Fatah movement senior leader Mohamed Dahlan, was celebrating a wedding party at home. (They hate Israel, they hate the West, but most of all they hate each other! We can see it happening through out the entire Muslim world: Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Nigeria…)

Quote of the Week: “I yearn for the day that the Palestinian leaders face their people and say these clear words: We have had enough of this conflict. We, the Palestinians, recognize the right of the Jewish people to a country of its own on this land. We will live beside you in true peace.” - PM Binyamin Netanyahu – After 60 years of Arab terror he is still a bit naïve. Destruction of Israel is the Arabs’ goal as the first step toward a Global Caliphate. You are next after Israel!

Spirit of Zionism is still Strong Among ‘Russians’. A new survey conducted by Israel Democracy Institute reveals that a whopping 77 percent of immigrants from the Former Soviet Union (FSU) support the transfer of Arabs out of the Jewish State, compared with 47 percent of veteran Israelis. (And a true assessment of the reality helps to keep the right prospective.)

Why has a Property Dispute Become an International Issue? Israel is isolated and vilified by international hypocrisies. The United States and others have strongly condemned a domestic decision, which has been confirmed by various courts all the way up to the Supreme Court, evicting Arab squatters from Jewish owned property. Despite the legality and historic justice of the proceedings the US, UK and UN have unequivocally condemned Israel.

No Good Will Among ‘Moderate’ Arabs. Jordan joined Saudi Arabia in publicly rejecting U.S. appeals to improve relations with Israel to help restart Middle East peace talks, throwing a damper on the Obama administration's futile push for Arab support behind new negotiations. (The reasons why Jordan and Egypt signed a worthless piece of paper with Israel were to get US foreign aid and regain lost land, Sinai. Peace was never in their mind!)

Hypocricy of the Headlines. Half-a-million occupiers in Palestinian territories... – Arab website - Article produced no information about the population of so-called Palestinians, who are actual occupiers of the Jewish land!

‘Great’ Tradition of British Hate.

Compiled by Aaron Shuster.

Of course the British won't ban a vehement Jew hater.  The British excel in Jew hatred.  Any man who hates Jews is a great friend of Britain. Why do you think the British let the Moslems swarm Britain.  They have a common enemy - the Jews.  It is precisely Jew hatred that bonds the British to their Islamic brethren.

Remember, not one train line running to Auschwitz was ever bombed by the British. Why would they want to stop the extermination of the Jewish people? Not a priority. At the same time, they banned Jews from returning to their homeland - Israel. Effectively, they locked the Jews in a burning building and threw away the key.

Geert Wilders, an international champion of free speech, is barred from Britain, but a Jew-hating Islamic supremacist is just fine with UK authorities: Despite his sectarian, racist incitements that Jews are "scum...rats...pigs and monkeys," the chief cleric of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, Sheikh Abdul Rahman al Sudais, has been welcomed and invited to preach at the East London mosque in Whitechapel tonight, Tuesday evening, 4 August 2009.

Al-Sudais, who has close ties to the Saudi elite, has also insulted Christians and Hindus, referring disparagingly to Christians as "cross-worshippers" and Hindus as "idol worshippers". He has been banned from Canada for his anti-Semitism.

The chairman of the East London mosque is Muhammad Abdul Bari. He is also the leader of the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB). Although the MCB has condemned anti-Semitism, it has previously declined to criticise the anti-Semitism of al-Sudais and has continued to support him despite his anti-Jewish tirade.

"Al-Sudais has stoked religious sectarianism and anti-Jewish racism. He has never expressed any regret," said human rights campaigner, Peter Tatchell. "I don't understand why the Home Secretary is allowing al-Sudais into Britain, given that similar hate preachers have been banned. Is it because of the close business links between the British and Saudi establishments?" Mr Tatchell queried. (Or it is done just for the sake of loving to hate Jews. We must not forget that Jews were deported from England by the order of a king long before the Inquisition in Spain. We still have not heard an apology for this hateful act!)
