Netanyahus history lesson hints at Israeli strike on Iran
Haaretz reports: “A day and a half after U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta warned of the dire circumstances an Israeli attack on Iran could lead to, and in the wake of similar warnings issued by former head of the Mossad Meir Dagan, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a comparison between the decision of Israel’s first prime minister, David Ben-Gurion to declare the foundation of the state of Israel, and a decision he, Netanyahu, faced today.
Speaking at the annual memorial Ben-Gurion, Netanyahu said that great statesmen as well as friends of the Jews and of Zionism warned Ben-Gurion that declaring a Jewish state in 1948 would bring an invasion of Arab armies and a grave and difficult battle, Netanyahu said.
Great statesmen as well as friends of the Jews and of Zionism warned Ben-Gurion that declaring a Jewish state in 1948 would bring an invasion of Arab armies and a grave and difficult battle, Netanyahu said.
He understood full well the decision carried a heavy price, but he believed not making that decision had a heavier price, Netanyahu said. We are all here today because Ben-Gurion made the right decision at the right moment. ” (Some nation must stop this Iranian maniac. Israel, alone, has the God given nerve to pay whatever price they must to stop this bloody murderer. If they dont, atomic bombs will kill millions when Ahmadinejad has his prized possession soon Zephaniah 1:18; Malachi 4:1; Revelation 8:7; 9:18. See the next two reports.)
Israeli Strike on Iran will ‘Jam, Blind, Deafen’ Defenses
Israel National News reports: “An Israeli attack on nuclear sites in Iran would go beyond air strikes from fighter planes and likely include electronic warfare against Irans electric grid, Internet, cellphone network, and emergency frequencies for fire and police services, according to a report by Eli Lake, a correspondent for Newsweek and the Daily Beast.
For much of the last decade, writes Lake, Israel has been assembling a multibillion-dollar array of high-tech weapons that would allow it to jam, blind, and deafen Tehran’s defenses in the case of a pre-emptive aerial strike.
U.S. intelligence officials are reported as saying that Israel has developed a weapon capable of mimicking a maintenance cellphone signal that commands a cell network to sleep, effectively stopping transmissions. The Israelis also have jammers capable of creating interference within Irans emergency frequencies for first responders, they said.
In the 2007 attack on a suspected nuclear site in Syria, Israeli planes spoofed the enemy’s air-defense radars, at first making it appear that no jets were in the sky and then in an instant making the radar believe the sky was filled with hundreds of planes, Lake writes.
Israel also likely would exploit a in Iran’s big-city electric grids, which are not air-gappedmeaning they are connected to the Internet and therefore vulnerable to a Stuxnet-style cyberattackofficials reportedly said ”
UAE leader: Israel would destroy Iran if attacked
Haaretz reports: “The prime minister of the United Arab Emirates has rejected the threat of a nuclear Iran, saying that if Tehran were to attack Israel, it would be destroyed the next day.
In an interview with CNN, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, the absolute monarch of Dubai, said that he does not think Iran would develop a nuclear weapon since it would be of little use to it.
What can Iran do with a nuclear weapon? al-Maktoum asked CNN. For example, will they hit Israel? How many Palestinians will die? And if you think Iran hits Israel, their cities will be safe? They will be gone the next day. ” (The main problem is that Sheik Khamenei, the leading cleric of Iran is not concerned about the Palestinian Muslims. He has publically stated “It matters not how many Muslims die through atomic warfare as long as our goal for global domination of all nations is accomplished.”
