Last month, former CIA officer Robert Baer, who spent 21 years in the Middle East, alleged that Israel will destroy Iran’s illegal nuclear facilities next month. Naer said “with near certainty that [Israeli Prime Minister] Netanyahu is planning an attack, and in as much as [he could] guess…it’s probably going to be in September.”
Adding to the speculation is the recent introduction of a bill into the US House of Representatives that would green-light a possible Israeli bombing campaign against Iran. (The bill is expected to be passed when Congress’ next session resumes in September.) House Resolution 1553 expresses “support for the State of Israel’s right to defend Israeli sovereignty, to protect the lives and safety of the Israeli people, and to use all means necessary to confront and eliminate nuclear threats posed by the Islamic Republic of Iran, including the use of military force[.]”
Furthermore, Israel National News this week ran a story, entitled “Israel Air Force (IAF) Generals ‘Loudly’ Demanding Strike On Iran,” which quotes the German paper Der Spiegel as saying that both the Israel Defense Force and IAF are seeking clearance to initiate a bombing campaign on Iran: “The calls for bombing Iran are getting louder and louder,” according to sources in Israeli intelligence.
Yet the most significant indicator that Israel is planning to intervene militarily in Iran is Prime Minister Netanyahu’s recent concession to U.S. president Barack’s demand that Israel withdraw to the “1967 borders” as a basis for future negotiations with the Palestinians. Although unjustifiable—the leader of the Jewish people does not agree to return half of the world’s Jews to “Auschwitz,” and then attempt to negotiate their salvation with sworn enemies—the only possible “rationalization” for Netanyahu’s decision is that in exchange for Israel’s “compromise,” Obama has agreed to “support” an Israeli strike on Iranian nuclear facilities.
That is, Obama wins on both fronts: he continues to extract dangerous unilateral concessions from Israel, and concurrently can take a back seat while the Jewish State is alone forced to save the world from the acquisition by tyrannical mullahs of nuclear arms, and the inevitable proliferation of weapons of mass destruction that will ensue.
A true U.S. leader, General Alexander Haig, who was a supreme commander of NATO and a US secretary of state, once described Israel as “the largest US aircraft carrier, which does not require even one US soldier, cannot be sunk, is the most cost-effective and battle-tested, located in a region which is critical to vital US interests. If there would not be an Israel, the US would have to deploy real aircraft carriers, along with tens of thousands of US soldiers, which would cost tens of billions of dollars annually, dragging the US unnecessarily into local, regional and global conflicts. All of which is spared by the Jewish State.”
Accordingly, the U.S. must begin to unconditionally support Israel in the existential fight against a radical Islamic Iranian regime bent on the West’s destruction.
Israel will be on the front lines fighting this war not only for itself, but also for the United States. When Israel wins, so too will the U.S. More precisely, when Israel wins, the U.S. will not have lifted a finger.
This benefit to the U.S. is immeasurable; all Israel asks in return is to be supported.
The time is now.
Otherwise, the Iranians will be knocking on our doorstep next.
