How many times have I written about the likelihood that, if a “deal” is struck with Iran that allows it the means to create nuclear weaponry, Israel will be forced to consider a military option? How many dozens of times?
From Ari Yashar\’s article at israelnationalnews.com:
As world powers and Iran reach a deadline Tuesday – which may be extended – for talks on the Islamic regime\’s nuclear program, Israel is taking steps to prepare for a military strike on Tehran\’s nuclear facilities so as to defend itself from the impending threat.
Iran has refused to allow inspections of its covert nuclear sites and declared it will use advanced centrifuges as soon as a deal is met, meaning the leading state sponsor of terrorism could potentially obtain a nuclear arsenal within weeks, all while getting billions of dollars in sanctions relief through a nuclear deal.
The Hebrew-language Walla! reported Tuesday that it has learned from a foreign source that IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot has appointed Deputy Chief of Staff Maj. Gen. Yair Golan to head a special team tasked with examining the military options against Iran.
The team would explore what kind of striking options are available to Israel after a deal with Iran is signed.
By appointing such a senior IDF official to the team, it is estimated that Israel is considering the signing of a deal to be a game changer which would require a serious reevaluation of the regional situation, and likely necessitate military action against Iran.
Should this surprise anyone? Even a little?
What is Israel supposed to do if a terrorist state, that has overtly stated its intent to wipe Israel off the map, is being given a “deal” which enables it to build such weapons? Sit back and say “Let\’s see what happens”?
And if Israel should strike, what will Barack Obama and John Kerry, the architects of this imbecilic, harebrained “deal” say? That Israel is the aggressor?
What do you get when you put an overmatched incompetent – one who clearly has little regard for Israel – in the Oval Office, and he appoints an overmatched incompetent – the second one in a row – as Secretary Of State? This is what you get.
But go ahead and make your “deal” Mr. Obama and Mr. Kerry – the one that allows Iran to have nuclear capabilities and does not require inspections.
“Let\’s see what happens”.
