Summary: New dramatic developments in the conflict between Israel on the one side and Iran and her proxies, Syria, the Hezbollah and Lebanon on the other side, are taking place since my latest posts. Israel is being completely isolated, Obama´s US now apparently wanting to cooperate with Iran and the Muslim countries at the cost of Israel - and is excluding a military strike on Iran. Besides, Russia will now deliver the S-300 surface-to-air missiles to Iran, which will make any Israeli attack on Iranian nuclear plants very difficult. Israel is in a desperate position. A lion is always most dangerous when cornered and having to fight for its survival. More and more it seems that Israel has to make a choice: To accept a nuclear armed Iran or to attack soon in the hope of having the US dragged into the war on Israeli side. This hope may, however, be futile, considering an illuminist Muslim is the President of the US. A disaster is looming. And some think that Anti-Amalekite Netanyahu has decided to attack the Messianic Haqqanites in Iran long ago. In this situation the actual government of the U.S., the Council on Foreign Relations, has changed its position and now recommends an embargo on Iranian oil exports and imports, equivalent to a declaration of war, and even military force against Iran. However, US Vice Pres. Biden says Israel will await sanctions. On Israel's northern border the danger of war is increasing - now apparently dependent on whether Syria will transfer missiles, which currently are positioned on the Syrian side of the border with Lebanon, to the Hizbollah in Lebanon. Exactly this transfer is now speedily taking place at the urgent request of Iran´s Pres. Ahmedinejad. Syria expects war with Israel on Syrian soil, and Jordan's King Abdullah warns of imminent threat of war. However, both sides seem to shy away from flying at each other´s throats so far. Russia's top general warns of disaster for the world, should Israel or the U.S. attack Iran. But such sounds have been audible for a long time. Pres Obama´s undecided Iran policy has now led to tensions not only with Israel - but also Saudi Arabia.

New dramatic developments in the conflict between Israel on the one side and Iran and her proxies, Syria, Hizbollah and Lebanon on the other side, are taking place since my latest posts and here. Some think that Anti-Amalekite Netanyahu has decided to attack the Messianic Haqqanites in Iran long ago.

The most dramatic change is that the President of the factual US government - manipulating Hillary Clinton, viz. The Council on Foreign Relations, has changed his mind, now favouring sanctionstantamount to a declaration of war  as well as military force against Iran – without Russia and China – saying sanctions are useless:
The Council on Foreign Relations 19 April 2010: Richard Haass: "Three sets of actions are needed. First, the United States should take the steps that would allow it to enforce tough sanctions, such as a ban on Iranian oil exports and refined oil imports. Second, the United States should develop Haass_4plans for the use of military force in an effort to set back Iran's nuclear program and weaken the government. Third, the United States should assess the pros and cons of an alternative or a fallback: a "North Korean" strategy, in which there would be an implicit acceptance of an Iranian nuclear weapon (or something close to it) that would involve deterrence of Iran and defense for its neighbors. All planning should anticipate Iranian retaliation and what would be needed from Saudis and others to stabilize energy markets." At the same time US Deputy Defence Secretary, Michele Flournoy, rules out a US military attack on Iran, contradicted by a Pentagon spokesman. Russian intelligence says the US is making a military buildup in the Gulf to peak in July.


 
NetanjahuLeft: Binyamin Nethanjahu is a member of the Council on Foreign  Relations.  Right: Pres. of the Council on Foreign Relations, Richard Haas, is also Obama adviser. They both favour crippling sanctions against Iran – even sidestepping the UN – Haass will furthermore attack Iran. Obama is undecided.

DEBKAfile 16 Apr. 2010The Obama administration has behind-the-scenes contacts with Iran in which they are engaged in drawing the dividing lines of influence between the US and Iran in the Middle East and Persian Gulf. The US is   acknowledging Iran's supremacy as the regional power at Israel's expense.

DEBKAfile 30 March 2010  As for the core issue, Iran's nuclear weapons program, here, too, the Obama administration was ready to be flexible, said the messengers, and accept Iran's acquisition of a nuclear bomb capability, so long as it does not cross the threshold and tip over into building bombs or stocking a nuclear arsenal. When US defense secretary Robert Gates visited Riyadh on March 10, he was told Saudi rulers no longer trusted the Obama administration to deal with the Iranian nuclear threat in the light of its backdoor contacts with the IRGC. Gates departed the kingdom after an angry exchange.
Now Reuters 31 March, 2010 sees it a little different – stating that there is a growing international consensus on sanctions against Iran.

The Mirror 12 April 2010: Mikhail Dmitriyev, head of the Russian Federal Agency for Military Co-operation confirmed delivery of the S-300 is imminent. Russia's stateowned news agency RIA Novosti said: "Contracts have been signed."
  Rockets-S-300"This has everyone worrieThe S-300's surface-to-air rockets can hit many targets at once, including in-coming cruise missiles, making any Western or Israeli strike on Iran much more difficult. The US is unwilling to attack Iran now.

  The Jerusalem Post 13 April 2010Iran will join the global nuclear club within one month, according to the deputy research chief of the Islamic Republic’s Atomic Energy of Iran (AEOI).
The Washington Times 30 March 2010: Iran is poised to begin producing nuclear weapons after its uranium program expansion in 2009, even though it has had problems with thousands of its centrifuges, according to a newly released CIA report. 

The danger of this war to begin is imminent on the border between Israel and Lebanon. 
AssadresizedThe Telegraph 15 April 2010: King Abdullah of Jordan has warned the US that there were fears in Lebanon that a war between Israel and Hizbollah was “imminent” amid high tensions in the region. The king gave his warning after Israel (Ehud Barak) claimed that Syria had handed over Scud missiles in its armoury to the Lebanon-based Hizbollah. The Obama administration voiced alarm, though one source said it was still not certain whether the transfer had yet physically taken place. (On 14 April, it had not).   The pace of Hizbollah's re-armament and Syria's role in it was causing growing alarm in the Jewish state. Officials in Syria have warned that it would join in any war involving Israel, Lebanon and Hizbollah.

12 April Lebanese Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri has expressed fears that Israel may attempt to involve the US in a new aggression against Lebanon or the Gaza Strip.

Foreign Policy 14 April 2010: Less than a week after a Feb. 17 visit by Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs William Burns — the highest-ranking U.S. official to visit Damascus in more than five years — Assad hosted Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah at a banquet in Damascus and stated that his government is "preparing ourselves for any Israeli aggression." The transfer of these weapons may indicate that Hezbollah_1619616cthe Syrian president is calculating that the next war with Israel could involve strikes on Syrian territory.

Global Research 30 Jan. 2010: Janes Defence Weekly: Syria may find it hard to avoid direct engagement in a future Israel-Hizbullah clash,” Spyer said. The “point of no return” would be if Damascus provided anti-aircraft devices to Hizbullah to use during Israeli violations of Lebanese airspace. This fear has prompted several sharp warnings from the US to Syria (The Telegraph 20 April, 2010). Now AFP 21 Apr. 2010: Senate Intelligence Committee chair Dianne Feinstein, a Democrat from California. "I believe there is a likelihood that there are Scuds that Hezbollah has in Lebanon. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry told AFP on Tuesday: "that has not been confirmed. But now  Debkafile on. 24 April reports, that Syria - due to an urgent plea by Iran´s Ahmedinejad - is  in the process of speedily  transferring Scuds to the Hezbollah in Lebanon - in spite of vigorous Israeli and US warnings. 
Foreign Policy 15 March 2010   Nasrallah's language, while aggressive, showed that Hezbollah only threatened to strike Israel if attacked first. And this week Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barack told an audience that Israel would "hold all of Lebanon responsible," in the event of a war, but only if Hezbollah struck first.

Israel being isolated
Obama + clinton-i- cairoIsrael exists due to US protection and financing. However, the relations between these 2 virtually Jewish governed states has deteriorated considerably within the latest month.  
DEBKAfile 24 March 2010: The high-stakes conversations Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu held in Washington with President Barack Obama and secretary of state Hillary Clinton on March 23-24 only deepened the crisis marring relations between the two governments. It makes naught of American leaders' constant affirmations of commitment to Israel's security.

DEBKAfile 14 April 2010World Jewish Congress  accuse Obama of abandoning Israeli security. Its president Ronald Lauder asks if friction with Israel is part of the Administration's desire to improve relations with the Muslim world.

How to do the job
The US withdrew a shipment of mega bunkerblasters for Israel recently. So what option does Israel have to go alone?  Reuters 26 March 2010: Now the CSIS– Zbigniew Brzezinski - says in a new report that "some believe that nuclear weapons are the only weapons that can destroy targets deep underground or in tunnels."  Sam Gardiner, a retired U.S. air force colonel who runs wargames for various Washington agencies: "…the only way it could be done is with tactical nuclear weapons."
Jerusalem_585x350_701024a
The text goes: “Warning! PLO agent in the White House” (The Times Online 25 March 2010). 
The Times 25 March 2010:  Eitan Cabel, an Israeli MP from the Labour Party, a coalition ally of Mr Netanyahu’s Likud party: “Netanyahu and his pyromaniac ministers insist on setting the Middle East ablaze." However, US Vice Pres. Biden says Israel will await sanctions.

What does Russia think?
Russia Today 13 April 2010: “The U.S. and Israel will resort to attacking Iran over its nuclear programme if pressed hard enough. They have it in their agendas.That’s according to the Chief of the General Staff of Russia’s Armed Forces, Makarow.
On 17 Febr. 2010 Mr. Makarow said: “The aftermath of a strike against Iran will be terrible not only for Asia but for us and the whole global community also,” He added the US made its stance clear as the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral Michael Mullen recently spoke about plans to attack Iran.

What is the implication of an Israeli or US attack on Iran?
The Truth Seeker 14 April 2010: The only countries that seem ready to consider punitive measures on Iran over its nuclear program are America, its Western allies and Israel. Now the media appears to be attempting to conceal the true extent of support for Ahmadinejad’s Iran. Meaning that if the issue of Iran’s nuclear program ultimately results in war it maybe far, far Foreign-policybigger than the corporate media is even hinting at. We are not looking at a war on the scale of the Iraq invasion but a world war.

Comment
Sanctions are useless and impossible, China and Russia being opposed to efficient ones. I cannot predict the future. But indeed, Israel may see herself forced to make her choice now right away: Accept a nuclear armed Iran or deliver a strike against Iran´s nuclear plants now. Once the Russian S-300 missiles have been delivered to Iran such a mission seems virtually impossible. Israel will probably have to go alone – and may not have the expected help from Muslim Pres. Obama. On the other hand, now the Jewish founded de facto US government, the Council on Foreign Relations, takes Israel´s position – and Obama is but a puppet in the hands of the CFR.  But every one hesitates - and US Vice President, Joe Biden, says, Israel will wait for sanktions 

However, it may seem as if the German Bundeswehr is already preparing for war against Iran, German soldiers now learning to say "Hands up" and "Shut up" in Persian! Shimon Perez unabashed and unchallenged thanked Chancellor Merkel - in Parliament, for having said on 3 Nov. 2009 before the U.S. Congress: "An attack on Israel is like an attack on us"! This was repeated by Deputy Defense Secretary Schmidt. However, Merkel said something entirely different: "Those who threaten Israel Israel-attack-routesthreaten us. Therefore, the free world is countering this threat - if necessary  with tough economic sanctions"!

Possible Israeli routes to attack Iran. Israel´s biggest concern is the danger to US soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan in case of a one-sided Israeli attack (The Wall Street Journal 21 April 2010). Maybe Israel is now bringing a pawn sacrifice by freezing settlement constructions in East Jerusalem to gain Obama´s and Arab go ahead on Iran/Syria (The Jerusalem Post 26 April 2010).

The New York Times  April 17 , reveals a secret memo from US Defense Security Robert Gates (from Jan.) determining that the White House has no effective policy for dealing with Iran's steady progress towards nuclear capability. CFR President, Richard Haass, supports Gates´criticism of Obama.  An Israeli attack would probably have great implications: an all-out war with Syria – probably crushing Syria (Isajah 17) and her henchman, Hizbollah-governed Lebanon. Would the UN intervene militarily in the Middle East? Could this rebuilt Israel survive such a confrontation (Hes. 35–39, Habakuk, Matth. 24)? Would a passive Obama be able to survive such a challenge of the Jews who control Congress and the US economy? Is this Albert Pike´s postulated plan? Is this what Joe Biden and Collin Powell were hinting at, when they predicted a great generated confrontation in the Middle East with Russia?
