Former Def. Minister: Israel Will Attack Iran by Nov.

Israel will be compelled to attack Iran’s nuclear weapons facilities by this November unless the U.S. and its allies enact “crippling sanctions that will undermine the regime in Tehran,” former deputy defense minister Brig. Gen. Ephraim Sneh said on Wednesday in Tel Aviv.

The sanctions currently being discussed with Russia, China, and other major powers at the United Nations are likely to be a slightly-enhanced version of the U.N. sanctions already in place, which have had no impact on the Iranian regime.

And despite unanimous passage of the Iran Petroleum Sanctions Act in January, the Obama administration continues to resist efforts by Congress to impose mandatory sanctions on companies selling refined petroleum products to Iran.

In an Op-Ed in the Israeli left-wing daily, Haaretz, Sneh argues that Iran will probably have “a nuclear bomb or two” by 2011.

“An Israeli military campaign against Iran’s nuclear installations is likely to cripple that country’s nuclear project for a number of years. The retaliation against Israel would be painful, but bearable.”

Sneh believes that the “acquisition of nuclear weapons by Iran during Obama’s term would do him a great deal of political damage,” but that the damage to Obama resulting from an Israeli strike on Iran “would be devastating.”

Nevertheless, he writes, “for practical reasons, in the absence of genuine sanctions, Israel will not be able to wait until the end of next winter, which means it would have to act around the congressional elections in November, thereby sealing Obama’s fate as president.”

Sneh does not foresee any U.S. military strikes on Iran, an analysis that is shared by most observers in Washington, who see the Obama administration moving toward containment as opposed to confrontation with Iran.

In a recent report for the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), military analyst Anthony Cordesman concluded that Israel will have to use low-yield earth-penetrating nuclear weapons if it wants to take out deeply-buried nuclear sites in Iran.

“Israel is reported to possess a 200 kilogram nuclear warhead containing 6 kilograms of weapons-grade plutonium that could be mounted on the sea launched cruise missiles and producing a Yield of 20 kilo tons,” Cordesman writes in the CSIS study he co-authored by Abdullah Toukan.

Israel would be most likely to launch these missiles from its Dolphin-class submarines, he added.

While Sneh is no longer in the Israeli government, his revelation of a drop-dead date for an Israeli military strike on Iran must be taken seriously, Israel-watchers in the U.S. tell Newsmax.

“Ephraim Sneh is a serious guy,” said Malcolm Hoenlein, executive vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations. “He was deputy minister of defense and has long been focused on the issue of Iran.”

Shoshana Bryen, Senior Director for Security Policy at the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA), said that what struck her most about Sneh’s comments was the shift of emphasis from resolving the Palestinian problem to Iran.

“For 30 years, he’s been saying that solving the Palestinian problem is Israel’s biggest priority. Now he’s saying, forget about the Palestinians. Iran is the problem.”

Sneh “is extremely well regarded on the left and the right,” she added. “People respect him enormously.”

In his Op-Ed, Sneh argues that the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu needs to mend its bridges with the United States, and the only way to do so is by enacting an immediate and total ban on any settlement activity, including in Jewish neighborhoods in East Jerusalem.

“Without international legitimacy, and with its friend mad at it, Israel would find it very difficult to act on its own” against Iran, he argued.

It's mainly British Troops in Iraq Afghanistan, they are being culled of course, once culled then there will be calls for the EU Army to be set up, and surprise suprise, Cameron is sugesting 'civil service for our youngsters'.
All neatly coming together, first undermine the family, school and parental discipline, promote 24hr drinking.
Frankfurt Subversion

Our new head of the Army General Richards ? said we could be in Afghanistan for 40yrs.

An immediate admission that there is no real goal, the 'Taliban' can just melt over the Border when they want into Pak, there's is a never ending supply of new recruits for them therre.
The only result is likely that our troops will become so demoralised we wont have an army or we will end up with a Multi Culti Army who will have no problem firing on Brit civilians.

Surely If we can see the decline is deliberate and planned our Generals can too, don't they teach this stuff at Sandhurst.

Whitehall, Westminster and the EU are at war with Britain, the British people and culling our Armed Forces.

Checks and balances need to come into play here, there is no doubt that the EU / NWO and Whitehall are at war with Britain.

Technically speaking, Iran, as a Sovereign Nation is allowed to build Nukes and Missiles, perhaps if we promoted trade and tourism, friendly relations all round she might not feel the need to spend money on these weapons.
We in turn could build up our forces and our infrastructure in such a way that any strike would have minimal impact, IE stop centralising everything.

Build houses factories that have cellars etc, not in anticipation but as a way of saying to any potential agressor, even in the event of an exchange we will still survive as a nation and people.
I believe we in the West can live quite peacefully with Iran and indeed Islam but that is not being allowed to happen.
The Zionist lobby is pushing the west and Islam to confrontation and mass immigration and eventuall civil war is part of that agenda.
To them, civil war in Europe / War in the Mid east will be killing two birds with one stone.

That Frankfurt article sums it up but forgets to mention them being mostly jewish and were funded by jewish millionare Felix Weil. Not very insightful. In fact, calling them German-Americans is outright tolerant lie.

Here's the reason:
"Their task, therefore, was as swiftly as possible to undermine the Judaeo-Christian legacy."

On the contrary, they strenghtened that legacy.

Most christians worship jews.

This is biological. Western Civilization is expression on white genepool and respectively with other cultures. Modern 'western' culture is clearly not upholding white biological continuum, just the opposite.
