Will Israel attack Iran or will Iran attack Israel ?

Gingrich wants Israel to set a deadline for Iran attack

Several sources have suggested that Israel within the next 100 days will be attacking critical elements of Iran’s nuclear weapons program.

After waiting many years for a diplomatic solution, time is running out.

The distinct impression is that Iran’s government is just stalling for time.

Iran could have a nuclear weapon sometime within the next year or sooner.

The first target would be Israel, then the USA or Europe.

The only open question is will Israel go it alone or will the attack be a joint Israel and United States attack.

An Israeli attack would be focused on the critical elements that must destroyed to prevent the manufacture of nuclear weapons.

 A joint attack would be broader in scope taking out various command and control  communication networks as well as radar and anti-aircraft weapon systems.

The attack most likely will be after the elections in the US, but before a new President takes office.

Both F-15 fighters produced in St. Louis and F-16 fighters produced in Fort Worth together with tanker aircraft for refueling will be used.

Israel’s need for more advanced tanker aircraft with increased fuel capacity and range suggest that the United States might be involved to the extent of providing tanker support with additional KC-135 aircraft.

The most likely time frame is mid-November through mid-January.

IDF preparing options for Iran strike

“…The IDF is drawing up options for a strike on Iranian nuclear facilities that do not include coordination with the United States, The Jerusalem Post has learned.

While its preference is to coordinate with the US, defense officials have said Israel is preparing a wide range of options for such an operation.

“It is always better to coordinate,” one top Defense Ministry official explained last week. “But we are also preparing options that do not include coordination.”

Israeli officials have said it would be difficult, but not impossible, to launch a strike against Iran without receiving codes from the US Air Force, which controls Iraqi airspace. Israel also asked for the codes in 1991 during the First Gulf War, but the US refused. …”


Israel prepares for Iranian strike without US cooperation

“…According to the Jerusalem Post, Israel has begun planning for a strike on Iran’s presumed nuclear-research sites without cooperation from the US.  Sources tell the JP that they’d prefer to partner with the Americans, but that they have to plan for the contingency of refusal:

According to the Post, Israel has twice asked for a green light and the codes, and the Bush administration has refused.  The US has installed missile-defense systems and deployed our own people to man them.  The Post notes that our intentions serve both Israel and ourselves, as it allows the US to watch Israel for any signs of military action. …”


Israel on the Iran Brink

“Israel isn’t famous for welcoming public scrutiny of its most sensitive military plans. But we doubt Jerusalem officials were dismayed to see news of their recent air force exercises splashed over the front pages of the Western press.

Those exercises – reportedly involving about 100 fighters, tactical bombers, refueling planes and rescue helicopters – were conducted about 900 miles west of Israel’s shores in the Mediterranean. Iran’s nuclear facilities at Bushehr, Isfahan and Natanz all fall roughly within the same radius, albeit in the opposite direction. The point was not lost on Tehran, which promptly warned of “strong blows” in the event of a pre-emptive Israeli attack.

The more important question is whether the meaning of Israel’s exercise registered in Western capitals. It’s been six years since Iran’s secret nuclear programs were publicly exposed, and Israel has more or less bided its time as the Bush Administration and Europe have pursued diplomacy to induce Tehran to cease enriching uranium.

It hasn’t worked. Iran has rejected repeated offers of technical and economic assistance, most recently this month. Despite four years of pleading, the Administration has failed to win anything but weak U.N. sanctions. Russia plans to sell advanced antiaircraft missiles to Iran and finish work on a nuclear reactor at Bushehr, though spent fuel from that reactor could eventually be diverted and reprocessed into weapons-usable plutonium. Chinese companies still invest in Iran, while the U.N.’s chief nuclear inspector, Mohamed ElBaradei, has repeatedly downplayed Iran’s nuclear threat. …”


Israel’s Not Bluffing on Iran Nuclear Strikes

“…Despite that American intelligence finding, neither Israel nor many other governments believe that Iran has given up its interest in nuclear weapons. Yes, the UN has passed resolutions and imposed some mild sanctions, but Iran has spent two years disregarding them, continuing to spin its centrifuges and to call for the destruction of Israel. It may well be true that Mr Bush is disinclined to bomb Iran now that he is a lame duck, but the possible advent of a President Obama might just make Israel more inclined to do so itself. As the hawkish John Bolton, a former Bush administration official, said this week, Israel may think the best time to attack would be during America’s presidential transition—too late to be accused of influencing the election and before needing a new president’s green light. …”

How Close is Israel to Attacking Iran?

Rick Moran

“…While the rest of the world dithers, Israel prepares to act. And only the most willfully self deluded can blame them. 
Who is it that has promised to “wipe Israel off the map?” Who is it who constantly threatens Israel with the most bellicose, the most outrageous rhetoric – not seen since the heydey of Adolf Hitler and his promise to wipe Czechoslovakia from existence?
There are many in the west who hear these threats and chalk them up to pure bombast or worse, deny that Iran is even making these threats, that we misunderstand what President Ahmadinejad and the rest of the Iranian leadership is saying – “mistranslation” is a common excuse.

But no one ever asks the question “Can Israel take that chance?” Their preparations would seem to indicate that they don’t believe they can.Military experts will point out that Israel cannot carry out such a mission successfully, that it would be madness for them to try. We have seen the IDF make miracles before so I would caution those who would rule out such an attack completely. But the point isn’t can it be done but rather does Israel feel it is necessary? If the Jewish state feels they have no other choice, I believe they will strike – regardless of the odds and world opinion. 





Nuclear program of Iran

“… United States

  • President George W. Bush insisted on August 31, 2006 that “there must be consequences” for Iran’s defiance of demands that it stop enriching uranium. He said “the world now faces a grave threat from the radical regime in Iran. The Iranian regime arms, funds, and advises Hezbollah.”[67] The U.N.’s nuclear watchdog agency issued a report saying Iran has not suspended its uranium enrichment activities, a United Nations official said. The report by the International Atomic Energy Agency opens the way for U.N. Security Council sanctions against Tehran. Facing a Security Council deadline to stop its uranium enrichment activities, Iran has left little doubt it will defy the West and continue its nuclear program.[66]
  • A congressional report released on August 23, 2006 made many allegations that have been strongly disputed by the IAEA calling it “erroneous” and “misleading”.””[68]
  • John Bolton, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said on August 31, 2006 that he expected action to impose sanctions to begin immediately after the deadline passes, with meetings of high-level officials in the coming days, followed by negotiations on the language of the sanctions resolution. Bolton said that when the deadline passes “a little flag will go up.” “In terms of what happens afterward, at that point, if they have not suspended all uranium enrichment activities, they will not be in compliance with the resolution,” he said. “And at that point, the steps that the foreign ministers have agreed upon previously … we would begin to talk about how to implement those steps.” The five permanent members of the Security Council, plus Germany, previously offered Iran a package of incentives aimed at getting the country to restart negotiations, but Iran refused to halt its nuclear activities first. Incentives included offers to improve Iran’s access to the international economy through participation in groups such as the World Trade Organization and to modernize its telecommunications industry. The incentives also mentioned the possibility of lifting restrictions on U.S. and European manufacturers wanting to export civil aircraft to Iran. And a proposed long-term agreement accompanying the incentives offered a “fresh start in negotiations.”[66]
  • The United States has repeatedly refused to rule out using nuclear weapons in an attack on Iran. The US Nuclear Posture Review made public in 2002 specifically envisioned the use of nuclear weapons on a first strike basis, even against non-nuclear armed states.[69] Investigative reporter Seymour Hersh has reported that, according to military officials, the Bush administration has been planning the use of nuclear weapons against “underground Iranian nuclear facilities”. [70] When specifically questioned about the potential use of nuclear weapons against Iran, President Bush claimed that “All options were on the table”. According to the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientist, “the president of the United States directly threatened Iran with a preemptive nuclear strike. It is hard to read his reply in any other way.”[71] Nevertheless, the Iranian authorities consistently insist that they are not seeking nuclear weapons as a deterrent to the United States, and instead emphasize the creation of a nuclear-arms free zone in the Middle East.[72] The policy of using nuclear weapons on a first-strike basis against non-nuclear opponents is a violation of the US Negative Security Assurance pledge not to use nuclear weapons against non-nuclear members of the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) such as Iran. Threats of the use of nuclear weapons against another country constitute a violation of Security Council Resolution 984 of 11 April 1995 and the International Court of Justice advisory opinion on the Legality of the Threat or Use of Nuclear Weapons. …”





Nuclear facilities in Iran 


President Ahmadinejad at Natanz in April 2008

President Ahmadinejad at Natanz in April 2008

(33°43′24.43″N 51°43′37.55″E / 33.7234528, 51.7270972) Natanz is a hardened Fuel Enrichment Plant (FEP) covering 100,000 square meters that is built 8 meters underground and protected by a concrete wall 2.5 meters thick, itself protected by another concrete wall. In 2004, the roof was hardened with reinforced concrete and covered with 22 meters of earth. The complex consists of two 25,000 square meter halls and a number of administrative buildings. This once secret site was one of the two exposed by Alireza Jafarzadeh in 2002. IAEA Director General Mohamed ElBaradei visited the site on 21 February 2003 and reported that 160 centrifuges were complete and ready for operation, with 1000 more under construction at the site.[11] Under the terms of Iran’s safeguards agreement, Iran was under no obligation to report the existence of the site while it was still under construction. …”

“…The trouble is, this logic looks different from Tel Aviv. Given their history, a lot of Israelis will run almost any risk to prevent a state that calls repeatedly for their own state’s destruction from acquiring the wherewithal to bring that end about. Till now, the world has talked a lot and applied some modest sanctions to stop Iran’s dash to enrich uranium. It is time to apply much tougher ones, in the hope that it is not already too late.”


Cabinet minister says Israel will “attack Iran” over nuke program

By see-dubya  

“…I’ve got to imagine this will resonate well in Israel. Right now they must realize that given his latest Kerryesque three-sixty half gainer triple-lindy flipflop about Israel and Palestine, Obama will be at best a fair-weather ally if he is elected, and probably (given his growing portfolio of endorsements from anti-Israel thugs like George Galloway) not even that.

This would be a much trickier attempt than the Iraq or Syria missions, of course. In 1981 the bombing run on Saddam’s Osirak reactor was an amazing feat of logisitics and planning, stretching the range and capabilities of Israel’s new F-16s. Iran’s even farther, and its nuclear program is spread around the country so much that it would be a matter of weeks instead of days to really cripple its nuclear capacity.

Well, time’s a wastin’. …”

And McCain–who knows?


Israeli Air Force

“The Israeli Air Force (IAF; Hebrew: זרוע האויר והחלל, Zroa HaAvir VeHahalal, “Air and Space Arm”, commonly known as חיל האוויר Hel HaAvir, “Air Corps”) is the air force of the Israel Defense Forces. The current Commander in Chief is Major General Ido Nehoshtan. The Israeli Air Force has approximately 1000 aircraft and is regarded as one of the greatest air forces in the world due to their gaining air supremacy in the Middle-East. …”

“…In the new millennium, the IAF bought the F-15I Ra’am (Thunder) and the F-16I Sufa (Storm), two of the most advanced variants of the F-15 and F-16 fighter jets, manufactured specially for Israel according to the IAF requirements. The IAF has purchased 102 Sufa F-16I warplanes, the first planes arrived in April, 2004 (the IAF is the largest operator of F-16’s after the US Air Force). The IAF also purchased the advanced Israeli air-to-air missile Rafael Python 5, with full-sphere capability, and considered among the best in its field, as well as a special version of the Apache Longbow, designated AH-64DI or Saraph. In 2005 the Israeli Air Force received special Gulfstream V jets (known as “Nachshon”), modified with the newest and most advanced intelligence systems in the world, all made by Israel Military Industries. …”


U.S. denies Israel’s request for tanker aircraft

“The United States has rejected an Israeli request for advanced refueling aircraft that could be used for any mission to strike Iran nuclear sites.

Israeli officials said the Bush administration refused a request by Defense Minister Ehud Barak to purchase the KC-767 tanker transport aircraft. They said the administration did not want to be seen as helping Israel attack Iran’s nuclear facilities.


“There is a virtual halt on the sale of all U.S. systems that could enhance Israel’s offensive capability,” an official said.

In August, Barak visited the United States and met Defense Secretary Robert Gates and other leading administration officials in talks that focused on Iran. During his visit, officials said, Barak raised the prospect of a U.S. sale of the twin engine KC-767 to replace Israel’s aging air refueling fleet. …”

“…On July 30, the Defense Department notified Congress of an Israeli request for nine C-130J-30 air transports from Lockheed Martin in an estimated $1.9 billion deal. Congress was expected to approve the sale of the tactical air transport.

Israel plans to house its air transport fleet at a base in the Negev desert. For nearly 50 years, the fleet was kept at Ben-Gurion International Airport near Tel Aviv. …”



Yes, Iran Can Be Stopped

The Iranian Regime can’t live without its oil money

by Daniel Doron

“…Iran seeks a nuclear capability for more reasons than fulfilling its dream of destroying Israel (they know Israel can retaliate, so even if they fervently wanted to destroy it, they might just continue to arm Arab terrorist proxies and have them bear the consequences, as they have done with Hezbollah). Iran needs an atomic weapon to one day take control of the flow and the price of oil, a strategic goal it has pursued since the days of the shah. Once it is in possession of an atomic weapon, it could control the Straits of Hormuz with impunity and dictate a constant, if gradual rise in the price of oil. No one will risk an atomic confrontation, let alone the threat of the Saudi oil fields being incinerated, to prevent a gradual rise in the price of oil.

The Iranians could then secure all the income they need to preserve–and even spread–their revolution. See what Arab petrodollars have done to the immune system of Europe, how they incapacitated it and made it impotent in dealing with growing Islamic radicalism in its midst. An Iranian-induced transfer of wealth caused by a steep rise in the price of oil will dwarf the already dramatic impact that Arab petrodollars have had on European politics and culture.

Pushing the hated West into economic decline will make it so weak politically and militarily that it will be in no position to resist when the time is ripe for the Iranian takeover of Saudi Arabia, its oil fields, and no less importantly in Tehran’s eyes, Islam’s holiest places. Shiite control of these Holy Places and of the Muslim jihad will finally bring the hated Sunnis, and especially the most hated Wahhabis, under Shiite domination, and fulfill another dream and strategic goal of the Islamic Republic of Iran. Shiite jihad will triumph “peacefully.” …”

[…] Here is the original post: World Wide War Warning-100 Day Countdown! […]

Iran will never be the first to attack, with or without nuclear power. Israel’s nukes will retaliate horribly. Mutual Assured Destruction will keep both powers in balance, is the deterrent. It is the vast amount of gas and oil the Zionists are after. It worked for them in Iraq, it looks like it won’t work in Iran. That frustrates the Zionists badly. They need a war to keep Israel from falling apart.

MAD rests on the assumption that the leadership of both govenrments are rational actors.

Fanatics are not rational.

Hitler diverted critical resources during World War II to kill 6 million jews and another 5 million prisoners.

Israel will not bet their country and their lives assuming fanatics will be rational.

The people of Iran are ready to revolt against the Mullahs.
