Israel is HELL-bent on dropping THE BOMB
This is no idle prediction. Israelis won't admit that they have it, but they're not afraid to use it.
Anyone who thinks for a second that Israel wouldn't dare demonstrate its nuclear capacity on Iran, can wakeup now.
If Israel is not forced [by US] to refrain, it's not a matter of IF they will use their nuclear arsenal, but simply WHEN and under what treacherous circumstance.
They didn't build them to put on a shelf - I don't care what so-called "leftist" Israeli alternatives are being leaked through the Zionist controlled media. Israelis are Hell-bent on demonstrating their nuclear supremacy.
And anyone who doubts that Israel would launch a nuclear attack on Iran need look no further than their massive assault on the civilian population of Lebanon last month, and their daily ongoing slaughter of Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank.
They've just outlined a litany of reasons why dropping THE BOMB is their most strategic option. And they are not afraid to do it.
The official Israeli policy [remains] that the international community must use sanctions to pressure Iran to halt its weapons research.
In a speech before the UN General Assembly last week, Israel's foreign minister, Tzipi Livni , said the international community "is faced with no greater responsibility than to stand against this dark and growing danger -- not for Israel's sake, but for its own." [that's a veiled threat, btw]
Nevertheless, the failure so far of US-led efforts to rally the UN Security Council has forced Israelis to ask "what if?"
For one, there is a new sense that the United States, bogged down in Iraq, will be unwilling to take on Iran militarily if diplomacy fails, according to Shai Feldman, director of the Crown Center for Middle East Studies at Brandeis University.
"For the moment, Iran seems to be dealing with a very, very strong hand," Feldman said in an interview, citing high oil prices and new influence in the region. "If there weren't these new considerations there would have been greater confidence in Israel that if all diplomacy failed that the United States would act militarily to stop Iran. There is a growing assessment in Israel that the United States might have no choice but to let this program go through."
There is also a deepening suspicion that any Israeli military strike would only embolden the Iranians, while doing little to prevent the country from ultimately acquiring a nuclear arsenal.
Unlike the Israeli airstrike against the Iraqi program, Iran's project is believed to be spread across multiple underground sites, many of them secret. Iran is also significantly farther than Iraq, making it more difficult for Israeli aircraft to travel undetected. Another complication: Any Israeli mission would be viewed as approved by Washington -- whether it is or not -- because the US military controls the Iraqi airspace through which Israeli jets would probably have to fly.
A senior Israeli diplomat said the Israeli government has no formal planning underway for how to respond to a nuclear Iran. [BULLSHIT.] But the official, who declined to be identified while discussing internal deliberations, acknowledged that a quiet debate is going on at the highest levels about what to do if, for example, Iran conducts a surprise nuclear test. [BULLSHIT - you can be sure that any surprise attacks will be Israeli.]There is no two ways to interpret this. Israelis are plotting to drop THE BOMB on Iran.
Yehezkel Dror, a member of the government commission reviewing the recent 34-day conflict with Hezbollah in Lebanon, is among those raising such questions. He maintains that Israel must have a new plan to deal with the prospect that it will wake up one day to find that Iran has the bomb.
He said in a recent article that some "red lines" would have to be laid down so that Iranians fully understand the kind of "heavy" response that would come from Israel if it felt threatened; for example, Israel might publicly state that [!!!] --->any missile originating from Iranian territory would have to be assumed to be a nuclear attack. <---[!!!]
"If efforts to prevent fanatical enemies from acquiring weapons of mass killing fail, TOTAL DETERRENCE may often be the only effective counter stance," Dror asserts. "This requires an image of UNSHAKEABLE WILL and assured capacity to ANNIHILATE any country that causes grievous harm to Israel, even after Israel is devastated."
ISRAELIS ARE AS MAD AS HATTERS.
What's for certain, Feldman said, is that the unfolding debate will be fierce.This is no exaggeration - the world sits at the edge of nuclear abyss.
"Some will argue that it is not the Cold War -- you are talking about people who welcome death," he said, referring to Islamic extremists in Iran. "But there will be new pressures to sharpen Israel's deterrence and the perception about its ability to retaliate."
For the past three years the United States military has been positioning itself to defend against any retaliatory attacks against Israel after they've done their deed. But, make no mistake, it won't be the United States that drops the next Nuclear Bomb - it will be Israel.
And when it happens, the world as we know it will officially cease to exist.
UPDATE: What did I tell you? they're itching to use it - it's just a matter of time.
