2. Nucking Futz - he's given it away!
W may be gone (at last) but Israel still has the equivalent in power.

The sooner these arrogant, stupid, bloody warmongers go, the better.

3. Tragic. Israel is not going to do anything without the U.S.
Edited on Sun Feb-01-09 03:09 PM by peacetalksforall
Kennedy had military brass panting for war with the USSR during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Kennedy did not have to deal with Israel when deciding what to do. Is there a military plan between Israel and our military and barons to do it/this to Iran?

Cheney is not around legally. Is there still a joint effort to take control of the region and its earth resources.

Is the military acting independently of the WH? No one feels that Isreal can do this on their own.

What do they mean - deal with Iran?

We know we're involved if Israel does anything. At least, under the Republicans.s

Why does everyone in Congress and the WH keep making statements of grand support for Israel? What is going on that we can't see?

Or are we going to be told that the scene we just viewed means NOTHING? And that we are being anti-semetic to ask?

NO WAR ON IRAN!

6. the tumor of endless war
has metastasized in the USA. our progressive leaders, the anti-war gray-hairs, the people who ended the Viet Nam war and transformed the entire vision of the USA for the better, have been completely compromised and rendered impotent by their fear of questioning Israel. Support for Israel is incompatible with an honest stand for justice and peace in the world. Not that DU represents a perfect microcosm of the progressive community at large, but the fact is that this comment may be blanked out without comment is testimony to the cognitive dissonance that defines the US anti-war movement and the progressive democratic vision in general.

7. Israel's ambassador to Australia has described his country's military offensives in Gaza as a
"preintroduction" to tackling the military threat posed by a nuclear-equipped Iran.

Israeli ambassador Yuval Rotem told a meeting of Sydney's Jewish community yesterday that he expected Iran would soon pose a major nuclear threat.

Seven News reporter Sarah Cummings reported that after telling a camera operator to turn off his camera, Mr Rotem told those gathered he expected Iran to stockpile enough uranium over the next 14 months to "be at the point of no return".

"(He said) the country's recent military offensives were a preintroduction to the challenge Israel expects from a nuclear-equipped Iran within a year," Cummings said.

During the meeting, held in a relaxed breakfast setting, Mr Rotem spoke about the war in Gaza, which has killed more than 1300 Palestinians.

Cummings said Mr Rotem made the point that "Israel's efforts in Gaza were to bring about understanding that we are ready to engage in a decisive way."

Seven said a staff member had invited Seven News "accidentally".

While being filmed before the discussion, mr Rotem said, "The best thing to do is to have a very open dialogue if there are no reporters or journalists here," before telling the cameraman to stop filming.

He said: "I am far more reserved in the way I am saying my things (on camera)."

World Vision Tim Costello chief executive said: "There is a view there that Iran is the serious issue and the serious problem, and that is widely known and widely discussed in the Jewish community."

Later in the afternoon, the Israeli ambassador denied that Israel was planning an attack, but said Iran needed to be stopped.
