Senior Israeli Official: Netanyahu Considers Missiles On Tel Aviv Preferable To Nukes In Iran

President Obama: ‘I’m proud that even in these difficult times we’ve fought for and secured the most funding for Israel in history’ – ‘I am proud to say that no US administration has done more in support of Israel’s security than ours. None. Don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise. It is a fact.’


US arms offer to Israel to delay hit (The Australian/AFP, Mar 9, 2012):

THE US offered Israel advanced weaponry in return for it committing not to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities this year, according to an Israeli report last night.

Citing unnamed Western diplomats and intelligence sources, the report in the Maariv daily said that during Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to Washington this week, the US administration offered to supply Israel with advanced bunker-busting bombs and long-range refuelling planes.

In return, Israel would agree to put off a possible attack on Iran until next year, after the US elections in November.

The issue of Iran was top of the agenda at talks between Mr Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama in Washington this week. The US and Israel are at odds over just how immediate the Iranian threat is. Mr Netanyahu said on Monday that sanctions against Iran had not worked, and “none of us can afford to wait much longer”.

A key difference between Washington and Israel has emerged on the timeline available for a strike against Iran, with the Jewish state warning that the weaponry available to it gives it a shorter window for action.

In response, the report said, the US administration offered to give Israel weapons and material that could extend its window to act against Iran. In particular, it would offer bunker-busting bombs more powerful than those currently possessed by Israel, which could target Iranian facilities even under rock.

The report came shortly after world powers known as the P5+1 – five UN Security Council members plus Germany – offered to resume long-stalled talks with Tehran over its nuclear program, but said talks must be “serious”, without preconditions and produce “concrete results”.

Earlier yesterday, a top Hamas official said it would not join a regional war on the side of Iran should Israel launch a pre-emptive strike against nuclear targets there, a stance that would limit the scope of Tehran’s expected counterstrike.

“What can Hamas do? I don’t think we would be able to do anything. This is between two countries,” Ahmed Yousef, a Hamas official in the Gaza Strip, said yesterday. “Does Iran need us? Iran is a big country . . . they can get revenge however they like.”

The statement by Mr Yousef – a former adviser to Gaza Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, who is close to Hamas’s political leadership – appears to underscore a shift in a fundamental Middle East alliance. Hamas has received support from the Shia leadership of Iran and its ally, Syria. In the wake of the Arab Spring, Hamas has moved away from that axis and is reaffirming older ties with regional Sunnis.

  1. This article makes sense. What I am seeing (my degree is in history with an emphasis on the art and science of propaganda) is that western media is throwing red herrings out faster than people can catch them. War with Iran, war on women, the endless, staged presidential election in America, regardless the outcome has already been decided by the few billionaire plutocrats who rule all of western civilization. The struggle is global, not national.
    A fictional war with Iran is being blamed for skyrocketing fuel and food prices, it is blamed on speculators and Iran. Perhaps a percentage of that is true, but the truth is far more terrible. In July, 2010, the South American Trade alliance was formed with local nations, including Cuba. They all trade using their own currencies, leaving out the US dollar. A few months later, Russia and China followed suit, established their own trade agreements eliminating the US dollar.
    Due to the added sanctions on Iran, India and Japan have joined with Russia and China, and are not using the US dollar in trade, all accept each other’s currencies. Last week, Iran announced it will trade with all nations using their own currencies and/or gold, it is up to the nations to decide. They are all abandoning the US dollar.
    As a result, the US dollar weakened dramatically by the endless printing presses by the Fed continues to fall. Europe and the UK still use the dollar, but they are all declining nations.
    Iraq and Libya tried to replace the US dollar as the world standard currency with gold using overt, open methods. We all see what happened to them. So, instead, other nations are backing off, and there is nothing the US can do to stop it.
    This is the real WW 3, and we are losing it.
    Thanks for covering this important story that MSM avoids completely.
