Israel Backs Russia’s Avowal That Syrian Chemical Arms Are Secure … “For Now”


.

“At the moment, [Syria’s] chemical weapons are under control,” said senior Israeli defense official Amos Gilad Sunday, Dec. 23, echoing the statement by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov Saturday that “the Syrian government has consolidated its chemical weapons in one or two locations amid a rebel onslaught and they are under control for the time being.”

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu then said enigmatically: “We are facing a near possibility of far-reaching changes in the Syrian regime with ramifications for the sensitive weaponry [chemical, biological] present there.”

Like Lavrov’s comments, neither Israeli statement accounted for the sudden reversal of events in the last 48 hours in the turbulent history of its northern neighbor. As recently as Friday, Bashar Assad’s Scuds and warplanes were battling the rebels to keep his big chemical and biological warfare arsenals at the Al Safira complex near Aleppo out of the hands of al Qaeda adherents who were moving in fast on this target. Twenty four hours later, the Russian foreign minister asserted the weapons were secure.

Military sources disclose that the battle of al Safira was abruptly interrupted by a foreign military force which stepped in and stopped the fighting in order to commandeer the chemical and biological stocks.  This force has been identified as a Russian special unit.

The entire episode is covered in a heavy blanket of secrecy, imposed from Moscow, Washington, Jerusalem and Damascus. They are using the public preoccupation with the holiday period in the West to keep it dark. However, from the scraps of evidence available, it is transpires that the foreign special unit reaching al Safira gave both sides, the Syrian army and the rebels, an ultimatum to hold their fire until the arsenals were removed, or else this special unit would mete out crushing punishment.

Since then, the Syrian army and rebels do not appear to have resumed fighting and it is not clear which side remains in control of the al Safira military complex.

One of the many enigmas surrounding this episode is whether the Russians carried out their operation for the capture of Assad’s WMD alone, or in conjunction with the US and Israel. And whether this cooperation extended up to and including implementation, or was confined to the intelligence and preparatory stages.

Amos Gilad’s comment points to a measure of international cooperation.  Furthermore, it is not clear whether the Syrian ruler gave permission for the removal of his unconventional weapons out of the reach of the rebels. Neither is their destination known.  And most of all, what makes Russian and Israeli officials so sure that they are in safe hands?

In his statement Saturday, Lavrov divulged that it had been “consolidated in one or two places” and that “Russian military advisers… kept close watch over [Syria’s] chemical arsenal.”

The Israeli defense official was in rare tune with Moscow on the fate of the Syrian ruler. He asserted that the civil war between Assad and opposition forces fighting to topple him had become deadlocked, but that the Syrian leader showed no signs of heeding international calls to step down.

“Suppose he (Assad) does leave, there could be chaos … in the Middle East you never know who will come instead. We need to stay level-headed; the entire world is dealing with this (another reference to multinational action in Syria). At the moment, chemical weapons are under control, despite the fact that President Bashar al-Assad has lost control of parts of the country,” Gilad said.

The IDF Summarizes The Operation “Pillar of Defense”: 1,500 Gaza Targets Hit


With 1,500 Targets Bombed And Only 145 Deaths
The IDF Achieved the Lowest Rate of Killing
of Any War In All Of Human History
With An Accuracy Of
90.3%

On The Other Hand, Hamas Set The Record of Poorest Aim Ever
By Having Shot 1,506 Rokets At The Israeli Civilians
And Only Killing 5 Of Us For A Mere:
~ 3% Accuracy

And Still Hamas Has The Chutzpa
Of Shamelessly Claiming Victory !!!

Our Fighters Performed Excellently,
Our Politicians Flunked … Again.
They Shall Pay In January

Iron Dome and Pillar of Defense

The IDF hit more than 1,500 targets in Gaza during Operation Pillar of Defense, according to a statement released Wednesday night.

The statement was a summary of the counterterrorist operation, which came to an end after a ceasefire was announced on Wednesday evening.

The IDF said it achieved the goals that were set prior to the operation and dealt a severe blow to Hamas and its military capabilities.

As a result of the IDF’s strikes, said the statement, there was significant damage to Hamas’s command array, including the targeted killing of arch-terrorist Ahmed Jaabari, extensive damage to infrastructure, facilities and Hamas military bases, as well as the bombing of dozens of smuggling tunnels.

The IDF said that its airstrikes destroyed and damaged Hamas’s strategic capabilities, including long-range rockets and hundreds of medium-range and short-range rockets. Consequently, Hamas’s launching capabilities were significantly disrupted.

Over the course of Operation Pillar of Defense, the IDF targeted 19 senior command centers, operational control centers and Hamas’ senior-rank headquarters, 30 senior operatives, 140 smuggling tunnels, 66 terror tunnels, dozens of Hamas operation rooms and bases, and 26 weapon manufacturing and storage facilities.

In total, 1,506 rockets were fired at Israel during Pillar of Defense, of which 875 exploded in open spaces and 58 exploded in populated areas. The Iron Dome anti-missile system intercepted 421 rockets, with a success rate of 84%.

Five Israelis, including four civilians and one soldier, were killed during the days of the operation and 240 people were wounded.

On Wednesday evening, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman held a joint news conference announcing the ceasefire.

Hamas celebrated the ceasefire and claimed “victory” over Israel. The terror group’s chief Khaled Mashaal announced in a press conference Wednesday evening that Israel “has failed in all its goals” in Operation Defensive Pillar, following the cease fire announcement.

The Islamic terror group marked the ceasefire by firing 20 rockets at southern Israel between 9:00 p.m. and midnight Wednesday evening.  We received six of those in Be’er Sheva, and what they did was to provoke a long and loud laughter from me and my wife, since we understood that it was the clear desperaton of these perennial loosers who want to appear as the victors.  See you next round, whiny and lying boasty loosers, maybe you shall not have it so easy then.

Truce? Well, Certainly No! Rather I Have Hiroshima On My Mind For The Sake Of Peace


Why?  Because Most “Civilians” In Gaza Are NOT “Innocent”
Although All The Hypocrites Of The World Pretend Otherwise

Before A Much Greater Disaster Takes Place, Let’s Continue This War
Until the Arabs Surrender Unconditionally … By Means Of Great Force
And Let The Liberal International Goy Opinion Go to Hell

And If Our Leaders Betray Us Again On Behalf Of Keeping Happy
The Antisemitic World Opinion,
Let’s Give Them ALL The Boot In The Coming Elections

Israel. To War Until Total Victory!

Adapted from an excellent article by Tzvi Fishman

The Spokesman for the IDF is constantly announcing that the Israeli Air Force is doing pinpoint bombing in order to protect “innocent civilians.”  Prime Minister Netanyahu also says that Israel deserves praise for the care it is taking not to injure “innocent civilians.”

Apparently to them, all these so-called “civilians” are “innocent” even though they house grad rocket launchers in their homes, and it’s their fathers and brothers who are doing the firing upon our true innocent civilians in Israel.  In the meantime, we are bombing evacuated warehouses and underground tunnels; meanwhile the Gazans keep firing away, obviosly not at all worried about being hit by our troups.  In all the 1,400 plus forays our fighter bombers have made over Gaza, maybe 140 people have been killed and a few dozens have been wounded.  What is that in any warfare?  Peanuts!  So, the “innocent civilians” keep shooting away.

Whose approval are we trying to win?  Has America or the United Nations applauded us on our great sense of morality and fair play?  Has France or Russia?  You’ve got to be kidding!  In their heart of hearts, they think that we are just a bunch of morons, fools.  Why?  Because no one fights a real war this self-defeating way.

A view from my window in Be'er Sheva

A view from my window in Be’er Sheva. These rockets, shot by ‘innocent civilians’ in Gaza, were aimed at me, my family and my friends.

Ok, let’s think about this for a moment.  Calculations of the death-toll from the Anglo-American bombing of Dresden in February 1945 have varied widely. Figures have ranged from 35,000 through 100,000, and even more.  The German city of Dresden had a population of 3/4 of a million people, plus hordes of anonymous refugees from the Eastern Front.  Well, it was destroyed in one single night by the Allied aircraft armed with more than 4,500 tons of high explosive and incendiary bombs. The commpletely devastated area amounted to around 13 square miles – whhich is not much different from the size of Gaza.  These victims weren’t Nazi soldiers but innocent civilians. But no one ever said a word.  Why?  Beccaause brought down the will of continue fighting of the Nazi Germans, who became really, really, really scare.

Then, toward the end of World War 2 – and following a firebombing campaign that destroyed many Japanese cities with a consequential great loss of life by the civilians – the Allies prepared for a costly invasion of Japan, knowing that thousands of American soldiers would be killed.  To avoid this, since Japan continued in its relentless intransigence, American airmen dropped the atomic bomb named “Little Boy” on the city of Hiroshima on 6 an August 1945, immediately killing 66,000 innocent civilians.  Then, since Japan still insisted in continue the strggle, the Americans dropped the nuclear bomb called “Fat Man” over Nagasaki on 9 August, this time killing 40,000 innocent civilians.  Finally, six days later, the Japanese unconditionally surrendered without the loss of one single American soldier in Japan.  Within the first two to four months of the bombings, the acute effects killed 90,000–166,000 innocent civilians more in Hiroshima and 60,000–80,000 in Nagasaki.  Once again, no one said a word against all this killing.

So, if you ask me, or if you don’t, it is high time we took a lesson from the Goyim.  Before even one of our soldiers steps foot in Gaza, instead of bombing vacant warehouses and tunnels, we should level a few, or more, 8-story buildings filled with terrorist-minded  “innocent civilians.”  That will stops their genocidal rockets upon our truly innocent civilians, believe me.  Delaying it shall only cause a greater catastrophy in the near future.  So, let’s prevent it, now.

My Ideas On This True War Against Terror, Not The Fake One Invented By The US


You Have Arrived To The ‘Mother Of All Rants Page’

Throwing All Political Correctness Out Of The Window

Beware, Get Away If You Are Of A Faint Heart

First of all, my apologies for not posting for so many days — most of all during these so important times — but my computer has been broken in the shop for far too long.  Now, one of my sons lent me this one … but, guess what, it’s having problems too!  Oh, well… I’ll try to do my best, though.

Would you allow terrorists to bomb your cities without a strong response?

For those of you that know me and my family, and for those who out of human solidarity simply care, I’ll say that even though we have been under fairly constant bombardment by the genocide-prone Muslim terrorists who bottom-dwell in Gaza, we are very well and with much hightened spirits. It is truly wonderful to witness and be a part of (although in a very miniscule way) the amazing salvation that HaShem constantly does for His People.

It is a great honor to live in a Land that infuses in the Jewish People such a great courage to face the hatred, threats and constant attacks of countless bloodthirsty savages, whose only purpose in life is to kill, conquer, abuse, lie, and kill, and kill and kill just as their barbaric Koranic (read demonic) religion of war and hatred demands of them.

I should start by a funny but true note of this necessary war.  Out of 834 missiles that the dishonorable Muslim terrorists had shot at us until this morning, 100 of them had fallen right upon their own heads in Gaza!  Well, it is the combination of the fact that they stink and are a bunch of loosers, plus the other evident Fact that HaShem loves Israel and also that He has a great sense of humor.  But it is also a Message and Reminder for all the Goyim in the world: that is what will happen in the future, as the Prophet Ezekiel says in the chapter 38 or 39 of his Holy Book in Tanakh.   I cannot quote it here and now because I’m in a computer lent and half-broken.  You look for it, but I assure you, it’s there.  Yes, miracles are happening, and more are on the way.

They attack our civilians from their civilian areas

For far too long, and shrouded by the complicit silence of the so-called “international community” and corporative media, the democratically-elected Hamas terrorists have constantly rocketed our civilian populations hidden from behind their own civilian areas in Gaza. That is the origin of this new round of war and death. Of course, the Arabs started their genocidal atempts almost 100 years ago, much before the resurrection of Israel.

whose fault is it?

So, under that cowardly primise of attacking us using their own families a human shileds and tools of propaganda, we have no other option that to attack their civilian areas. Again, we have to attack their civilian areas. Should I repeat, whose fault is it?

I think that we may be on the verge of an enormous war of incalculable dimensions.  This war shall be caused by the evil intrancigense of the Muslim Arabs, who do not want to accept the idea of the existance of a non-Muslim nation in the Middle East — no matter how well established the historical rights of that nation may be, as it is the case of the Jewish People in reference to our tiny Land.  The fact of the matter is that if we were Hindus, Christians or Buddhists, it would be the same ordeal with them.

The Arabic word ‘Islam’ means ‘submission’, and that is their main concern in life: They need to submit other nations, races, religions, philosophies, women, children everybody! and force them to follow the dictates of their degenerate false prophet and worship a cruel and filthy demon impersonating the True King of the Universe. Their biggest problem, though, is that Israel shall not be conquered and submitted ever again.  Yes, according to Prophecy there may come a day when Israel will be almost conquered and almost submitted by a confederacy of Islamic bastards; but it will be on that same Day when HaShem will “filp the omelette” around on them, thus causing their utter destruction — as well as as those pathetic nations that, out of their wet antisemitic dreams, solidarize openly or covertly with the Islamic filth.

Today, after only 4 1/2 days of our long-awaited and well-deserved response to their constant barrage of rockets upon our civilian heads, the Gazan rats are crying like non-paid whores for a cease fire.  Now, Muslim Brotherhood-controlled Egypt — one of their shameless Jihadist pimps — after only one day of having threatened us with Islamic retaliations for our “agression” against the “Palestinian” people, wants to be a “mediator” to achieve a cease fire that would prevent the erradication of terrorist Hamas from Aza, and that would make them look good.  Now they all whine to the UN through the prostituted media, which they have bought with their petro-dollars.  But, we Jews know all too well that the so-called “international community” and the liberal media wish — no, salivates — for our complete disapearance from our Land one way or another, so as to placate the Arabs and continue receiving their oil.

Last night a building where journalists cohabit with terrorists in Gaza was destroyed by our forces; no one was hurt, but Al Jazzira and other Muslim outlets said that several news people had being wounded.  But the Western “journalists” did not care to contradict such falacy.  So why should we care about such “journalists”?  They are there knowingly serving as human shields to the terrorists, and possibly much more; they take sides with the terrorists, and the want immunity so as to prevent weapon caches and terrorists strongholds to be exonerated from attack.  My opinion is that if they don’t want to get hurt, or worse, not to get in the line of fire … or else, goodby.  Are they not the ones that published that Israel had aimed at a civilian home, when in reality it was the house of thecommander of the north forces of the terrorists?  Who says that terrorists can aim at our homes but that we cannot aim at theirs?  And their children?  Well, why should we care about their children when they don’t care about them, rather they use them as human shields?! 

A wounded Israeli baby.  Few publicized this foto because few care about Israeli civilians

A wounded Israeli baby. Few publicized this foto because few care about Israeli civilians at all

They have pushed us to this understanding:  we are to care FIRST and FOREMOST for our own children and much later for others’.  The US and Europe have murdered an immense amount of children in Iraq and Afghanistan by bombing blindly their enemy, but now they want to hold us to a different standard.  Bastards!!!

America invented a reason to attack Iraq, where almost a million civilians were indescriminately killed and maimed by NATO.  And they were not attacked, not even provoked, by the Iraqis.  Ah, but killing in the name of oil is OK.  Should I clarify that Americans call oil “freedom” as in “the Marines are fighting for ‘freedom’.”  Hah!  Yes, that’s true American ingenuity, allright.  America went to Afghanistan to control the market of Opium Poppies and Heroine, the production of which has quadrupled under the American military invasion and supervision.  And where is the oh so selfrighteous media informing the zombies of the world about this fact?  Of course they euphemistically called this “The War On Terror,” when in reality it was ‘The War For Oil And Drugs’.

Ah, but when Israel fights the only true war on terror in this world against true terrorists

not elements controlled by our Mossad, as it is the case with the CIA and Al Qaida then everybody becomes so, so humane… even though we send hundreds of thousands of leaflets and messages to the unworthy “civilians” in Gaza to stay away from our bombs directed surgically to weapon depots and terrorist training camps.  But why the true civilians do not leave their weapons-ridden homes?  Because they are forced at gun point by the also civilian terrorists.  What should we do, then?  The same American and Europeans have done all along without any reason: bomb them.  The civilians in Gaza voted for Hamas in the hopes that they would exterminate the civilian Jewish population in Israel; therefore, they had it coming.  Aren’t these the same civilians that when our civilians are exploded by their beloved terrorists dance in the streets  of Gaza and congratulate one another?  So why the commiseration now with such bunch of rabid donkeys?

When we see terrorists on TV, what do we see?  Armed civilians!  But the antisemitic media ignores that fact, and when we kill them they report that civilians were “assassinated by Israel.”  Yes, the media is complicit with the modern Hitlerists, just as they were when the Holocaust.  So, maybe I will cry for Argentina, but I will not for blood-thirsty terrorists, nor for their supporting civilians, and not when lying journalists fall while our forces try and clean that enclave of evil since I, like David HaMelech, hate HaShem’s enemies and the enemies of his People with a perfect hatred, and I will loudly exult The Almighty, B”H, when He will at last annihilate, through Moshiach, all the enemies of Israel in a well deserved Display of His Omnipotence in the rapidly coming Great Day of our Redemption.  May it be soon, in our lifetime so that we can finally say and have Shalom.

Attack On Sudan, A Victorius Military Mission With Multiple Messages


If, as Sudan claims, those were Israeli planes that bombed its military factory
on Wednesday, Jerusalem would not have lacked reasons

Iran is at the same distance, and not all the weapons were overground
The installation built by Iranians was an easy target

Wednesday’s explosion at Sudan’s Yarmouk Complex, outside Khartoum

If, as the Sudanese claim, the four desert-camouflaged fighter planes that swooped down on a military factory near Khartoum early Wednesday took off from Israel, then the ruin they left in their wake was a message not just to the country’s genocidal leader Omar al-Bashir but also to Gaza’s terror groups, to Iran and to even to the antisemitic and always treasonous West.

In addition to destroying a valuable base for manufacturing Iranian arms, the message was meant mainly for the United States.  Surely it must have come as somewhat of a shock to wicked Panetta, evil Dempsey and the miserable political generals who populate the Pentagon and spend a disproportionate amount of time deriding Israel’s military ability to strike and destroy Iran, Syria and Hezbollah, to now measure the distance between Jerusalem and Khartoum and find it was 200 to 300 kilometers farther than Israel would need to fly to fly a mission and hit Fordo, as well as most other Iranian strategic targets and return to base.  But it is not merely the refueling and EW capabilities that made this mission possible, it’s also the impressive fact that it took only four Israeli aircraft using, as yet, undisclosed weaponry, to level the joint.  Stands in pretty sharp contrast to the mighty US military’s inability to fly gunships 480 miles to support the embassy in Benghazi over a seven hour period.  Rather startling contrast, no?

The mission might also have been ordered to remove a large stockpile of weapons slated for Gaza or Sinai; as a warm-up drill for Iran; and as a preemptive strike, albeit risky, that preserves the fragile peace with Egypt, which Iran has every interest in destroying.

So many potential aims. Such rumbling silence from Jerusalem.

Let’s start with the West. Surely several officers in the Pentagon and elsewhere noted that the distance between Jerusalem and Khartoum is identical to the distance between the Israeli capital and Qom. Over recent months, there has been ample talk of “Israel’s ostensible inability to strike deep within Iran.” Much of that talk admittedly revolved around the potency of an Israeli attack and its capacity to inflict damage on Iran’s nuclear plants, but an apparent ability to evade or cripple enemy radar for a distance of some 1,700 kilometers would doubtless now be duly noted.

For Tehran, the strike might have sharpened the message that so long as part of the nuclear program remains above ground, it is vulnerable to attack. Perhaps Iran’s air defenses are better than Sudan’s — or Syria’s, for that matter. And surely a strike against Iran would be far more complex. But Iran might now be wondering afresh whether its radar will detect enemy planes cutting through its air space.

The attack would also seem to underline that the Iran-Sudan-Gaza link, channeling an increased flow of arms, will not thrive undisturbed. “Sudan is the pivot on which Iran’s Africa relations turns,” said Ely Karmon, a senior researcher at the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism in Herzliya. From there, he noted, Tehran long worked to undermine Hosni Mubarak’s hold on power in Egypt, and from there Iran has been sending arms shipments to Gaza.

Sudanese tyrant al-Bashir, who is wanted by the International Criminal Court in the Hague on three counts of genocide and crimes against humanity, has longstanding ties with an impressive array of terror organizations — both Sunni and Shiite. From 1991-1995 he hosted Osama bin Laden in Sudan, and his ally, Hassan al-Turabi, the head of the National Islamic Front in Sudan, organized joint training camps for Hezbollah, the PLO and al-Qaeda operatives among others, according to the 9-11 Commission report.

Critically for Israel, and despite al-Bashir’s Sunni beliefs, those partnerships include links to Iran. “The ties between Tehran and Khartoum were significantly tightened ever since al-Bashir came to power in 1989,” said Karmon. Much as it did for al-Qaeda during the nineties, he added, Khartoum has allowed Iran to build several “very large bases.”

At one point, many shipments of those made-in-Sudan arms went to Hamas. It was in this context that many viewed the 2010 assassination in Dubai of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, the chief of Iranian weapons procurement for Hamas, and the air strikes against weapons convoys and arms dealers in Sudan that began in 2009.

Today, Karmon said, Hamas is out of the loop. Ever since the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and the Hamas leadership’s decision to leave Damascus, Hamas, unlike the Salafist groups that will cooperate with any element fighting the West, has taken sides with the Sunni mainstream — which is to say it is locked into a struggle for regional supremacy with Iran and Shiite Islam. ”The visit of the Emir of Qatar is the final proof that Hamas has moved to the Sunni side,” Karmon said of Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani’s visit to Gaza on Tuesday.

Iran, on the other hand, still maintains “a distinct interest” in pitting Israel against Egypt. For this reason it continues to supply Islamic Jihad and the Salafist groups in Gaza and Sinai with weapons — hoping to draw Israel into a battle with Egypt, which would weaken both Israel and the Sunni camp in the Middle East.

Israel, finally, has several possible reasons to strike Khartoum. One, there may have been a large stockpile of weapons that Israel wanted to remove from the market. Two, hitting a major arms factory and not just a convoy, as in the past, “sends a signal to the Iranians” that their installations are vulnerable, Karmon said. And lastly, he speculated, “it could be a sort of live fire drill” in preparation for Iran.

Israeli officials, for their part, were keeping mum on Thursday. Cheerfully so.

Rebuffing The EU, Netanyahu Says There Are No Limits On Jerusalem Constructions


The Israeli Prime minister says the Attorney General is blocking
the implementation of the Levy Report on legalizing the West Bank outposts

There will be “no limits” to construction in Jerusalem,
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said during a cabinet meeting on Sunday

His comments come two days after the European Union, Britain and France condemned the Interior Ministry’s approval of a plan to build almost 800 new housing units in Gilo, a southern Jerusalem neighborhood beyond the 1967 Green Line.

“We are not imposing any restrictions on construction in Jerusalem. It is our capital,” Netanyahu said. He added Israel has a connection to Jerusalem as “ancient and powerful” as other states do to their capital.  [ Actually, more ancient than most sand much more powerful ]

Gilo is part of the city captured during the 1967 Six Day War from Jordon domination, and it was subsequently annexed to Israel, a move contested by the genetically antisemitic international community and the fake “Palestinians.”

Also on Sunday, Netanyahu expressed hope that the recommendations of the Levy report, a state-sponsored document that advised legalization of the West Bank outposts, would be implemented, but said that extreme leftist Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein was holding up the process.

[ In Israel there is the most idiotic form of government possible giving opportunity to agenda-driven rogues, like this arrogant creepo, to create some form of anarchy — nothing to be surprised about because that is what happens when Jews wilfully reject the HaShem-ordained form of government and try to imitate the pathetic forms of the Goyim. ]

Weinstein, according to Army Radio, is not happy with the legal phrasing of the report and feels that implementation of its recommendations during the election period would be detrimental to the democratic process.

[ Something which is absolutely ridiculous, since what in reality is completely detrimental to the democratic process is he constantly interfering in achieving what the majority in Israel wants, but that he hates.  But, as a matter of fact, is there anyone more undemocratic than a Liberal with power? ]

The fate of Jerusalem and the West Bank lies at the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The so-called “Palestinians” refuse to negotiate while Israel continues to build settlements in East Jerusalem and Judea and Samaria on the West Bank of the Jordan river. They do so because they claim the territory of Jerusalem — all Jerusalem — as the capital of their recently invented state, a state that obviously never existed in all the history of mankind.

Israel recovered both areas in the 1967 Six Day War. Netanyahu has very justifiably rejected the notion of partitioning the Jewish Holy City, although that was one of the provisions of the 1993 Oslo Accords, which envisioned a two-state, two-capital solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

[ But the Oslo Accords were never heeded by the fake “Palestinians” and therefore were never valid a single day.  To talk about the Oslo Accords is a futile exercise in voluntary idiocy. The genetically antisemitic international community expects that Israel should comply while the Arabs flatly ignore it.  Well, fat chance!  World War 3 is coming our way, and the West and the UN are largely responsible for being so bluntly one-sided against Israel.  When Unfairness presides over the peace discussions, war is absolutely inevitable.  But this time around will not be like during WW2, the blood of many shall abundantly mix with the Jewish blood. Why? Because never again shall Jews go like lambs to their death; we might die, we we shall die fighting — and fighting hard! And let the imbecilic world know it before it is too late. ]

Israel And the US Are Planning An October Surprise. But Israel Can Do It Alone


Israeli KC-135 refueling craft

Israeli KC-135 refueling craft

Four facts deserve attention with regard to a potential attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities.  The first is that the Iranian-Israeli war is already at hand. Iran launched it by sending an unmanned drone into Israeli air space Saturday, Oct. 6, (which was Hoshanah Rabah) breaking new ground in belligerence with a cyber attack.  Israel countered by stationing Patriot missile interceptor batteries in Haifa and other parts of its northern region.  This ridiculous response is so blatantly cowardly and irresponsible that it would make one laugh if it was’nt so pathetic.  As a matter of fact, the humorless Arabs run a much greater risk of dying of laughter at our government than by any explosion of our many nukes.  May it please HaShem to send us soon Moshiach, because as things go: the terrier dogs of my neighbour would make much better politicians than these clowns we actually have … and I mean ALL our politicians, with minimal exceptions that could be counted with the fingers of one hand.

In front of the complicit silence of the so-called “international community” Tehran initiated hostilities with a cyber attack on Israel, and that fact cannot be wiped from the record any more than its score: two points, Iran; zero, Israel, whose air defenses apparently proved to be no match against a large, slow-moving and cumbersome aerial vehicle loaded with electronic equipment.

As many experts have pointed out, Patriots are not designed for intercepting aircraft, only missiles. Their deployment therefore aims at defending the country from potential Iranian or Hizballah missile strikes from Lebanon or Syria — depending partly on the state of the Syrian war.

On the other hand, when Hamas and Jihad Islami spokesmen they assumed shared responsibility for the 55 Palestinian missiles and mortars fired against Israel Monday morning, Oct. 8, said quite openly that the rules of Gaza warfare had changed: any IDF attacks on terrorist targets in the Gaza Strip, however limited in scope, would draw forth reprisals not only from that Palestinian-ruled territory but from Lebanon as well, they said.  This is a fact that was not difficult to see it coming, but our government with its pusilanimity has encouraged it … and what is yet to come.

As of mid-September, under newly-signed military pacts, the strings of the two leading Palestinian terrorist militias in the Gaza Strip are being manipulated from Beirut by Iran and Hizballah. It is they who now set the rules and dictate the scope of Palestinian anti-Israel operations from Gaza. The drone’s incursion was a separate Iranian initiative. The other points pertinent to the Iranian-Israel confrontation are:

  1. US intelligence recently warned Barack Obama that Iran’s nuclear breakthrough point is much closer than formerly estimated, i.e. approximately 7 weeks off. In late November, therefore, Iran will enough have 20% plus enriched uranium to build a nuclear bomb. American and Israeli intelligence see eye to eye on this estimate. It flies, however, in the face of the assessments circulated in Israel by anti-attack factions who are now claiming that Iran has slowed the progress of its military nuclear program in order to divert much of its enriched uranium to civilian projects. This claim is not only incorrect, but it is a valuable contribution to Tehran’s propaganda effort to prove that its program is entirely innocent and peaceful.  Everyone knows very well that all these so-called “peace” and “human rights” organizations in Israel are just a thin cover for a bunch of ferociously self-hating traitors to do their best at attacking, and delegitimizing Israel at every turn, and so help bringing about the Second Shoah (Holocaust) upon the Jewish people, this time on our very own Land.  That is why the endemically antisemitic “international community” solidarizes with them — and with the Muslim Arabs — so much.
  2. Contrary to the always highly manipulated and distorted White House, CIA, Pentagon and State Department investigations, as well as the prostituted media “researches,” a recent US Congressional Research paper, published internally on Sept. 28, asserts that Israel is totally capable of going at it alone — without the United States — against Iran’s nuclear sites, including the Fordo underground enrichment facility. This fact has been completely suppressed by the anti-attack Iran camp, whose spokesmen have insisted that Israel lacks this capacity. The experts commissioned by congress to determine the truth of the matter concluded that: “… an attack on Esfahan, Natanz, and Arak might require deploying only 20% of Israel’s top-line fighters purchased from the United States. …this yields an Israeli strike involving at least 100 aircraft. Most sources indicate that Israel has a total of “around 350 fighter jets.” The US congressional research team adds that, although Israel received enough 7 KC-130 refueling planes from the US to cover the round trip to Iran and back, the Israeli Air Force has also secretly developed two more refueling options about which the US knows very little.  “Over the past two years, Israel Aerospace Industries-IAI bought up all the Boeing 707s coming on the international market and had them converted in IAI factories into KC-135 refueling planes,” says the report. After the Congressional Research Center published these findings, David Rothkopf, who is close to US Democratic Party leaders, tested the ground with a report Monday, Oct. 8, in Foreign Policy, which said that the United States and Israel are considering the possibility of a joint “surgical strike” against Iran’s nuclear facilities as an “October surprise.”  He quoted a source said to be close to the discussions, which claimed that “a small-scale attack is currently viewed as the most likely military option by air, using bombers and supported by drones,” which Israel would not be able to carry out on its own.

What Rothkopf was saying is that the Muslim in Chief in the White House, Barry Obama, has no more than 20 days to decide if and when to conduct this US-Israel attack on Iran.  His clock, say our sources, is ticking at the same speed as that of former Mossad chief Efraim Halevi who on August 1 predicted an attack on Iran within twelve weeks; and Tzahi Hanegbi, the former Knesset defense and foreign affairs committee chair and close confidant of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who said in mid-September that the next 50 days would be critical for Israel’s destiny.  But like always, Israel’s Destiny is insured and protected by the Almighty King of Heavens, B”H.

MK Danny Danon’s Calls For A “Three-State-Solution” in His New Book


A New And Fair Solution For The Arab-Israeli Conflict,
But Those Interested In The Destruction Of Israel
Will Surely Not Accept

“Enough with the two-state-solution! Land-for-Peace is over,”
MK Danon Realistically Proclaims

Reality is that the only Viable Solution Will Be Decided By a Major war

Danny Danon - Israel: The Will to Prevail

Danny Danon has come a long way since his activist days. His new book Israel: The Will to Prevail briefly mentions one of his first headline grabbing moments, when he helped reclaim Jewish property in Jerusalem with a small group of young activist members of a group called Yerushalayim Shelanu (Our Jerusalem). For the full interview with MK Danny Danon, download Reality Bytes with Josh Hasten by clicking here.

Danon’s book covers contemporary issues, such as the Mava Marmara flotilla incident, but also gives extensive historical background information on how the situation got to where it is today.

He also writes about US-Israeli relations. “Israel should do what is good for Israel, period,” Danon stated on Israel National Radio. “We must learn from history that we must make our own decisions in the long run.” Danon gave the example of Israel’s 1981 bombing of the nuclear reactor in Iraq. The incident was initially condemned, but later praised following the 1991 Gulf War.

One of the most attention-getting aspects of the book is Danon’s “three-state-solution”, which he calls “a new paradigm for peace.” “Enough with the two-state-solution. Land-for-peace is over,” Danon said. “We don’t want a Palestinian State. We need to apply Israeli sovereignty over all Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria. It’s been about 20 years since the Oslo Accords. That’s finished and now we’re ready for new ideas.” The three states of which Danon speaks are Israel, Egypt and Jordan. “If you go to the Arab-populated cities in Judea and Samaria, you will hear them speaking like they do in Jordan,” he said. Danon asserted that the Arab population of Judea and Samaria have Jordanian accents and often travel to and from Jordan.  “It’s the same with the Arabs of Gaza and their connection to Egypt,” he stated.

Born in Israel, Danon served as a shaliach (overseas councilor) for the Betar Zionist Youth Movement in the 1990s in Florida. He later achieved other leadership positions, such as being voted Chairman of the World Likud Organization. He was elected to the Knesset in 2009.

White House Irked By Netanyahu’s “Red Line” Speech, Reverts To Iran Diplomacy


America Continues to Provoke the Wrath of G-d

In the Midst of an Arrogance Attack Obama and Clinton

Let See their Genocidal Intention Toward Israel

The Muslim in Chief in the Wite House is Very Mad at Netanyahu
for Daring to Defend the Right of Israel to Fight for her Survival
in Front of the Evident Conspiracy existent between Obama and Iran

.

The Islamic Usurper

The Islamic Usurper Dictates to Israel

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton berated Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for the powerful presentation of his case for confronting Iran with Red Lines — instead of the thus far failed American diplomacy and weak sanctions — in his speech to the UN General Assembly Thursday, Sept. 27.

Neither of them released a statement from their conversation of an hour and a quarter one-on-one shortly after the irrefutable speech. Clinton made it clear that the arrogant Muslim Kenyan usurper of the White House Barack Obama would not tolerate the Israeli prime minister having a say in his Iran agenda.

Of course, what these two filthy mongrels (Obama and Clinton) forgot is that Mr. Netanyahu is the democratically-elected leader of a sovereign and totally  independent nation (yes, despite de wet dreams of many self-important Americans); and therefore it is Netanyahu — and no other! much less them — has the greatest saying in what concerns the national survival of israel.  In Israel we all have their number, and will not stand by their vain American imperial arrogance.

Muslim Obama — committed as he is to supporting the Islamic dream of world conquest and the destruction of Israel — assured that he would remain stuck to diplomacy regardless of Netanyahu’s warning that it was getting “late, very late” to stop a nuclear Iran.  Clinton accordingly announced a decision by “the world powers” to go into another round of nuclear negotiations with Iran, although after the breakdown of diplomacy in July, they expected an improved Iranian offer.

These so-called “world powers,” who speak so grandiloquently about freedom and democracy, have abrogated themselves the position of deciders of the course of history for all humanity, something that only belongs to G-d Almighty, B”H.  It will be lovely to see what will happen to them pretty soon.

Notorious anti-Semite EU foreign executive Catherine Ashton was directed to get in touch with Iran’s nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalilee for another attempt to set up talks, although when the two officials met in Istanbul on Sept. 18, they made no headway.

US steps early Friday Sept. 28 put the clock back five days to Monday when Obama dismissed Netanyahu’s advocacy of agreed Red Lines for warning Iran off its nuclear bomb program as “background noises” which he systematically blocked. This reversal came after White House and Israeli officials had begun discussing moving the critical timeline for that program to late spring, early summer 2013, instead of this year.

Addressing the UN General Assembly Thursday, Sept. 27  Israel Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu graphically depicted Israel’s Red Line for Iran. He held up a simple diagram showing that Iran had covered 70 percent of the distance to a nuclear bomb and must be stopped before it reached the critical stage next spring or early summer of 2013. He stressed that it is getting late, very late to stop a nuclear Iran. The best way, he said, is to lay down a clear Red Line on the most vulnerable element of its nuclear program: uranium enrichment. “I believe that if faced with a clear and credible red line, Iran will back down and may even disband its program,” he said.

Red Lines prevent wars, don’t start them and in fact deterred Iran from blocking the Strait of Hormuz. Israel and the US are in discussion over this issue, said Netanyahu. “I’m sure we can forge a way forward together.” He went on to accuse Iran of spreading terrorist networks in two dozen countries and turning Lebanon and Gaza into terror strongholds.

Hoping a nuclear-armed Iran will bring stability is like hoping a nuclear al Qaeda will bring world peace, the prime minister remarked. Some Washington sources are disclosing that the White House and Israel emissaries have come to an understanding that Israel will hold back from attacking Iran’s nuclear sites before the US election in November, while a special team set up by Usurper Obama completes a new paper setting out the end game for Iran. He put the team to work after concluding that negotiations with Iran had exhausted their usefulness. Gary Samore, top presidential adviser on nuclear proliferation, leads the team.

Netanyahu’s citing of late spring, early summer 2013, as the critical point on Iran’s path to a nuclear bomb appears to confirm that he has agreed to delay military action against Iran following negotiations with the White House on the next agreed steps. The prime minister was represented in those talks by Defense Minister Ehud Barak and National Security Adviser Yakov Amidror.

According to another view, which is current in Washington’s intelligence community, Israel was finally persuaded to delay by fresh intelligence [ most probably contrived ] presented by the Obama administration which showed that Israeli estimates were overly pessimistic in judging the timeline for Iran’s nuclear facilities to be buried in “immunity zones.” That timeline extended to spring 2013, leaving Israel five to six months up to April-May for ordering a military operation against those sites. However, we have learned that Israeli intelligence circles dispute their American colleagues’ estimate as “interesting” but inaccurate.  Netanyahu, in his speech, confirmed that Washington and Jerusalem were constantly exchanging views and evaluations on the state of Iran’s nuclear program. He also made the point that while intelligence services, American and Israeli alike, had remarkable aptitudes, their estimates on Iran were not foolproof. He was referring to the Pentagon dubious claim that when Iran was ready to build a bomb, American intelligence would know about it in good time.  But that does not mean that they will share the truth with Israel.

Trusting America has proven suicidal for many nations, among them Cuba where I was born, but also the prosperous pre-Ayatollah Iran, Nicaragua, and many others.  Bigoted America is only trustworthy for England, France and Germany; the rest should better be very careful.  Israel does not need America.  Reality is opposite to that:  America needs Israel, and HaShem will soon validate such a truism.

Obama the Muslim Donkey gets a History Lesson 101

.

.

Thank you very much Mr. President.

It’s a pleasure to see the General Assembly presided by the Ambassador from Israel, and it’s good to see all of you, distinguished delegates.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Three thousand years ago, King David reigned over the Jewish state in our eternal capital, Jerusalem. I say that to all those who proclaim that the Jewish state has no roots in our region and that it will soon disappear.

Throughout our history, the Jewish people have overcome all the tyrants who have sought our destruction. It’s their ideologies that have been discarded by history.

The people of Israel live on. We say in Hebrew Am Yisrael Chai, and the Jewish state will live forever.

The Jewish people have lived in the land of Israel for thousands of years. Even after most of our people were exiled from it, Jews continued to live in the land of Israel throughout the ages.  The masses of our people never gave up the dreamed of returning to our ancient homeland.

Defying the laws of history, we did just that. We ingathered the exiles, restored our independence and rebuilt our national life. The Jewish people have come home!

We will never be uprooted again!!!

Yesterday was Yom Kippur, the Holiest Day of the Jewish year.

Every year, for over three millennia, we have come together on this Day of reflection and Atonement. We take stock of our past. We pray for our future. We remember the sorrows of our persecution; we remember the great travails of our dispersion; we mourn the extermination of a third of our people — six million — in the Holocaust.

But at the end of Yom Kippur, we celebrate.

We celebrate the rebirth of Israel. We celebrate the heroism of our young men and women who have defended our people with the indomitable courage of Joshua, David, and the Maccabees of old. We celebrate the marvel of the flourishing modern Jewish state.

In Israel, we walk the same paths tread by our patriarchs Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. But we blaze new trails in science, technology, medicine, agriculture.

In Israel, the past and the future find common ground.

Unfortunately, that is not the case in many other countries. For today, a great battle is being waged between the modern and the medieval.

The forces of modernity seek a bright future in which the rights of all are protected, in which an ever-expanding digital library is available in the palm of every child, in which every life is sacred.

The forces of medievalism seek a world in which women and minorities are subjugated, in which knowledge is suppressed, in which not life but death is glorified.

These forces clash around the globe, but nowhere more starkly than in the Middle East.

Israel stands proudly with the forces of modernity. We protect the rights of all our citizens: men and women, Jews and Arabs, Muslims and Christians — all are equal before the law.

Israel is also making the world a better place: our scientists win Nobel Prizes. Our know-how is in every cell-phone and computer that you’re using. We prevent hunger by irrigating arid lands in Africa and Asia.

Recently, I was deeply moved when I visited Technion, one of our technological institutes in Haifa, and I saw a man paralyzed from the waist down climb up a flight of stairs, quite easily, with the aid of an Israeli invention.

And Israel’s exceptional creativity is matched by our people’s remarkable compassion. When disaster strikes anywhere in the world — in Haiti, Japan, India, Turkey Indonesia and elsewhere — Israeli doctors are among the first on the scene, performing life-saving surgeries.

In the past year, I lost both my father and my father-in-law. In the same hospital wards where they were treated, Israeli doctors were treating Palestinian Arabs. In fact, every year, thousands of Arabs from the Palestinian territories and Arabs from throughout the Middle East come to Israel to be treated in Israeli hospitals by Israeli doctors.

I know you’re not going to hear that from speakers around this podium, but that’s the truth. It’s important that you are aware of this truth.

It’s because Israel cherishes life, that Israel cherishes peace and seeks peace.

We seek to preserve our historic ties and our historic peace treaties with Egypt and Jordan. We seek to forge a durable peace with the Palestinians.

President Abbas just spoke here.

I say to him and I say to you:

We won’t solve our conflict with libelous speeches at the UN. That’s not the way to solve it. We won’t solve our conflict with unilateral declarations of statehood.

We have to sit together, negotiate together, and reach a mutual compromise, in which a demilitarized Palestinian state recognizes the one and only Jewish State.

Israel wants to see a Middle East of progress and peace. We want to see the three great religions that sprang forth from our region — Judaism, Christianity and Islam — coexist in peace and in mutual respect.

Yet the medieval forces of radical Islam, whom you just saw storming the American embassies throughout the Middle East, they oppose this.

They seek supremacy over all Muslims. They are bent on world conquest. They want to destroy Israel, Europe, America. They want to extinguish freedom. They want to end the modern world.

Militant Islam has many branches – from the rulers of Iran with their Revolutionary Guards to Al Qaeda terrorists to the radical cells lurking in every part of the globe.

But despite their differences, they are all rooted in the same bitter soil of intolerance. That intolerance is directed first at their fellow Muslims, and then to Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, secular people, anyone who doesn’t submit to their unforgiving creed.

They want to drag humanity back to an age of unquestioning dogma and unrelenting conflict.

I am sure of one thing. Ultimately they will fail. Ultimately, light will penetrate the darkness.

We’ve seen that happen before.

Some five hundred years ago, the printing press helped pry a cloistered Europe out of a dark age. Eventually, ignorance gave way to enlightenment.

So too, a cloistered Middle East will eventually yield to the irresistible power of freedom and technology. When this happens, our region will be guided not by fanaticism and conspiracy, but by reason and curiosity.

I think the relevant question is this:  It’s not whether this fanaticism will be defeated. It’s how many lives will be lost before it’s defeated.

We’ve seen that happen before too.

Some 70 years ago, the world saw another fanatic ideology bent on world conquest. It went down in flames. But not before it took millions of people with it. Those who opposed that fanaticism waited too long to act. In the end they triumphed, but at an horrific cost.

My friends, we cannot let that happen again.

At stake is not merely the future of my own country. At stake is the future of the world. Nothing could imperil our common future more than the arming of Iran with nuclear weapons.

To understand what the world would be like with a nuclear-armed Iran, just imagine the world with a nuclear-armed Al-Qaeda.

It makes no difference whether these lethal weapons are in the hands of the world’s most dangerous terrorist regime or the world’s most dangerous terrorist organization. They’re both fired by the same hatred; they’re both driven by the same lust for violence.

Just look at what the Iranian regime has done up till now, without nuclear weapons.

In 2009, they brutally put down mass protests for democracy in their own country. Today, their henchmen are participating in the slaughter of tens of thousands of Syrian civilians, including thousands of children, directly participating in this murder.

They abetted the killing of American soldiers in Iraq and continue to do so in Afghanistan. Before that, Iranian proxies killed hundreds of American troops in Beirut and in Saudi Arabia. They’ve turned Lebanon and Gaza into terror strongholds, embedding nearly 100,000 missiles and rockets in civilian areas. Thousands of these rockets and missiles have already been fired at Israeli communities by their terrorist proxies.

In the last year, they’ve spread their international terror networks to two dozen countries across five continents — from India and Thailand to Kenya and Bulgaria. They’ve even plotted to blow up a restaurant a few blocks from the White House in order to kill a diplomat.

And of course, Iran’s rulers repeatedly deny the Holocaust and call for Israel’s destruction almost on a daily basis, as they did again this week from the United Nations.

So I ask you, given this record of Iranian aggression without nuclear weapons, just imagine Iranian aggression with nuclear weapons. Imagine their long range missiles tipped with nuclear warheads, their terror networks armed with atomic bombs.

Who among you would feel safe in the Middle East? Who would be safe in Europe? Who would be safe in America? Who would be safe anywhere?

There are those who believe that a nuclear-armed Iran can be deterred like the Soviet Union.

That’s a very dangerous assumption.

Militant Jihadists behave very differently from secular Marxists. There were no Soviet suicide bombers. Yet Iran produces hordes of them.

Deterrence worked with the Soviets, because every time the Soviets faced a choice between their ideology and their survival, they chose their survival.

But deterrence may not work with the Iranians once they get nuclear weapons.

There’s a great scholar of the Middle East, Prof. Bernard Lewis, who put it best. He said that for the Ayatollahs of Iran, mutually assured destruction is not a deterrent, it’s an inducement.

Iran’s apocalyptic leaders believe that a medieval holy man will reappear in the wake of a devastating Holy War, thereby ensuring that their brand of radical Islam will rule the earth.

That’s not just what they believe. That’s what is actually guiding their policies and their actions.

Just listen to Ayatollah Rafsanjani who said, I quote:  “The use of even one nuclear bomb inside Israel will destroy everything, however it would only harm the Islamic world.”

Rafsanjani said:  “It is not irrational to contemplate such an eventuality.”

Not irrational !!

And that’s coming from one of the so-called “moderates” of Iran.

Shockingly, some people have begun to peddle the absurd notion that a nuclear-armed Iran would actually “stabilize” the Middle East.

Yeah, right.

That’s like saying a nuclear-armed Al-Qaeda would usher in an era of “universal peace.”

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I’ve been speaking about the need to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons for over 15 years.

I spoke about it in my first term in office as Prime Minister, and then I spoke about it when I left office. I spoke about it when it was fashionable, and I spoke about it when it wasn’t fashionable.

I speak about it now because the hour is getting late — very late!  I speak about it now because the Iranian nuclear calendar doesn’t take time out for anyone or for anything. I speak about it now because when it comes to the survival of my country, it’s not only my right to speak; it’s my duty to speak. And I believe that this is the duty of every responsible leader who wants to preserve world peace.

For nearly a decade, the international community has tried to stop the Iranian nuclear program with diplomacy.  That hasn’t worked.

Iran uses diplomatic negotiations as a means to buy time to advance its nuclear program.

For over seven years, the international community has tried sanctions with Iran. Under the leadership of President Obama, the international community has passed some of the strongest sanctions to date.

I want to thank the governments represented here that have joined in this effort. It’s had an effect. Oil exports have been curbed and the Iranian economy has been hit hard.

It’s had an effect on the economy, but we must face the truth. Sanctions have not stopped Iran’s nuclear program either.

According to the International Atomic Energy Agency, during the last year alone, Iran has doubled the number of centrifuges in its underground nuclear facility in Qom.

At this late hour, there is only one way to peacefully prevent Iran from getting atomic bombs. That’s by placing a clear Red Line on Iran’s nuclear weapons program.

Red Lines don’t lead to war;  Red Lines prevent war.

Look at NATO’s charter:  It made clear that an attack on one member country would be considered an attack on all.  NATO’s Red Line helped keep the peace in Europe for nearly half a century.

President Kennedy set a red line during the Cuban Missile Crisis.  That Red Line also prevented war and helped preserve the peace for decades.

In fact, it’s the failure to place Red Lines that has often invited aggression.

If the Western powers had drawn clear Red Lines during the 1930s, I believe they would have stopped Nazi aggression and World War II might have been avoided.

In 1990, if Saddam Hussein had been clearly told that his conquest of Kuwait would cross a Red Line, the first Gulf War might have been avoided.

Clear Red Lines have also worked with Iran.

Earlier this year, Iran threatened to close the Straits of Hormouz. The United States drew a clear Red Line and Iran backed off.

Red Lines could be drawn in different parts of Iran’s nuclear weapons program.  But to be credible, a Red Line must be drawn first and foremost in one vital part of their program: on Iran’s efforts to enrich uranium.  Now let me explain why:

Basically, any bomb consists of explosive material and a mechanism to ignite it.

The simplest example is gunpowder and a fuse. That is, you light the fuse and set off the gunpowder.

In the case of Iran’s plans to build a nuclear weapon, the gunpowder is enriched uranium.  The fuse is a nuclear detonator.

For Iran, amassing enough enriched uranium is far more difficult than producing the nuclear fuse.

For a country like Iran, it takes many, many years to enrich uranium for a bomb. That requires thousands of centrifuges spinning in tandem in very big industrial plants. Those Iranian plants are visible and they’re still vulnerable.

In contrast, Iran could produce the nuclear detonator – the fuse – in a lot less time, maybe under a year, maybe only a few months.

The detonator can be made in a small workshop the size of a classroom.  It may be very difficult to find and target that workshop, especially in Iran. That’s a country that’s bigger than France, Germany, Italy and Britain combined.

The same is true for the small facility in which they could assemble a warhead or a nuclear device that could be placed in a container ship. Chances are you won’t find that facility either.

So, in fact, the only way that you can credibly prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon, is to prevent Iran from amassing enough enriched uranium for a bomb.

So, how much enriched uranium do you need for a bomb? And how close is Iran to getting it?

Let me show you. I brought a diagram for you. Here’s the diagram.

This is a bomb; this is a fuse.

In the case of Iran’s nuclear plans to build a bomb, this bomb has to be filled with enough enriched uranium. And Iran has to go through three stages.

The first stage:  they have to enrich enough of low enriched uranium.

The second stage:  they have to enrich enough medium enriched uranium.

And the third stage and final stage:  they have to enrich enough high enriched uranium for the first bomb.

Where’s Iran? Iran’s completed the first stage. It took them many years, but they completed it and they’re 70% of the way there.

Now they are well into the second stage. By next spring — at most by next summer at current enrichment rates — they will have finished the medium enrichment and move on to the final stage.

From there, it’s only a few months, possibly a few weeks before they get enough enriched uranium for the first bomb.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

What I told you now is not based on secret information. It’s not based on military intelligence. It’s based on public reports by the International Atomic Energy Agency. Anybody can read them. They’re online.

So if these are the facts — and they are — where should the Red Line be drawn?

The Red Line should be drawn right here.  Before Iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb.

Before Iran gets to a point where it’s a few months away, or a few weeks away, from amassing enough enriched uranium to make a nuclear weapon.

Each day, that point is getting closer. That’s why I speak today with such a sense of urgency. And that’s why everyone should have a sense of urgency.

Some who claim that even if Iran completes the enrichment process, even if it crosses that Red Line that I just drew, our intelligence agencies will know when and where Iran will make the fuse, assemble the bomb, and prepare the warhead.

Look, no one appreciates our intelligence agencies more than the Prime Minister of Israel.  All these leading intelligence agencies are superb, including ours. They’ve foiled many attacks. They’ve saved many lives.

But they are not foolproof.

For over two years, our intelligence agencies didn’t know that Iran was building a huge nuclear enrichment plant under a mountain.

Do we want to risk the security of the world on the assumption that we would find in time a small workshop in a country half the size of Europe?

Ladies and Gentlemen,

The relevant question is not when Iran will get the bomb. The relevant question is at what stage can we no longer stop Iran from getting the bomb.

The Red Line must be drawn on Iran’s nuclear enrichment program because these enrichment facilities are the only nuclear installations that we can definitely see and credibly target.

I believe that faced with a clear Red Line, Iran will back down.

This will give more time for sanctions and diplomacy to convince Iran to dismantle its nuclear weapons program altogether.

Two days ago, from this podium, President Obama reiterated that the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran cannot be contained.

I very much appreciate the President’s position as does everyone in my country. We share the goal of stopping Iran’s nuclear weapons program. This goal unites the people of Israel. It unites Americans, Democrats and Republicans alike and it is shared by important leaders throughout the world.

What I have said today will help ensure that this common goal is achieved.

Israel is in discussions with the United States over this issue, and I am confident that we can chart a path forward together.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

The clash between modernity and medievalism need not be a clash between progress and tradition.

The traditions of the Jewish people go back thousands of years. They are the source of our collective values and the foundation of our national strength.

At the same time, the Jewish people have always looked towards the future. Throughout history, we have been at the forefront of efforts to expand liberty, promote equality, and advance human rights.

We champion these principles not despite of our traditions but because of them.

We heed the words of the Jewish prophets Isaiah, Amos, and Jeremiah to treat all with dignity and compassion, to pursue justice and cherish life and to pray and strive for peace.

These are the timeless Values of my people and these are the Jewish people’s greatest gift to mankind.

Let us commit ourselves today to defend these values so that we can defend our freedom and protect our common civilization.

Thank you.
