Israel Alone Against the Islamic Republic

David Meir-Levi writes and lectures on Middle East topics, until recently in the History Department of San Jose State University.

In dealing with the threat of a nuclear Iran, Obama has not merely kicked the proverbial can down the proverbial road; he has actually aided and abetted Iran in its quest for military nuclear capabilities.

Such a grim assessment of Obama’s Iran policy is unavoidable in light of his inaction against Iran for its capture of the RQ-170 stealth drone in December of last year; his silence over Iran’s initiation of 20% uranium enrichment at the underground Fordo facility near Qom; his reluctance to send U.S. aircraft carriers into the Persian Gulf through the Straits of Hormuz;  his hesitation in approving immediate sanctions on Iran’s central bank and energy sector; his silence as Hugo Chavez allies with Iran to develop terrorist and missile bases in Venezuela; his secret attempt to influence Congress to soften US sanctions; and his secret letter of appeasement to Iran.   These inactions are incomprehensible and unforgivable because they have allowed Iran to reach the threshold of becoming a nuclear threat to the entire world.

What can now be done?  All the options are bad. Sanctions have slowed Iran’s progress but not stopped it.  Bombing Iran’s nuclear facilities would certainly inflict crippling pain and would set back Iran’s WMD quest by a year or so; but this course of action brings with it risks of regional upheaval and war, global economic disruption, and Iran-sponsored terror attacks on US and Israeli targets anywhere in the world.  On the other hand, not stopping Iran from bringing the world to the brink of nuclear holocaust has obvious consequences of an even more dire and perilous nature.

How can any country, any national or international leader, dissolve this Gordian knot of similarly evil alternatives?  Israel may have the answer, without an airstrike.

Since 2005 various parts of the Iranian nuclear project have been hit by a series of disasters, which Iran blames on the West, and especially Israel.1

In April 2006, two transformers blew up and 50 centrifuges were ruined during Iran’s first attempt to enrich uranium at Natantz. A spokesman for the Iranian Atomic Energy Council stated that the raw materials had been “tampered with.”

Between January 2006 and July 2007, three airplanes belonging to Iran’s Revolutionary Guards crashed under mysterious circumstances. Some reports said the planes had simply “stopped working.”

“Stopped working” was also the Iranian explanation for two lethal computer viruses that penetrated the nuclear project’s computer system in 2007, knocking out a large number of centrifuges.

In January 2007, several insulation units in the connecting fixtures of the centrifuges, which were purchased on the black market from suppliers in Eastern Europe, turned out to be flawed and unusable. Iran concluded that some of these suppliers were actually straw companies that were set up by Iran’s enemies to outfit the Iranian nuclear effort with faulty parts.

In January 2007, Dr. Ardeshir Husseinpour, a 44-year-old nuclear scientist, died under mysterious circumstances. The official announcement said he died in a “work accident,” but Iranian intelligence blames Israel.

Massoud Ali Mohammadi, a particle physicist, was killed in January 2010, when a booby-trapped motorcycle parked nearby exploded as he was getting into his car. Some analysts harbor the suspicion that Mohammadi was killed by Iranian agents because of his support for the Iranian opposition leader Mir Hussein Moussavi, but Iran blames Israel.

In June 2010, reports surfaced that the computer system operating the uranium enrichment site of Natanz had been infected with a new and more powerful cyber-weapon, a deadly virus known as “Stuxnet.”  A highly sophisticated, incredibly invasive, but surgically refined virus, Stuxnet infected 59% of Iran’s computers but targeted only those using the Siemens SCADA software used by Iranian nuclear facilities.  Contrary to Iranian denials, analysts confirmed that this cyber-attack delayed Iran’s WMD progress by at least several years and forced 984 centrifuges off-line.

    This regieme change mantra leads nowhere.

    Regime change in Iran will neither end the nuclear programm, a matter of national pride, nor will it end hostility towards the West or Israel, after decades of embargo, support for Saddams invasion and current "covert" terror against the population.

    A regime change in Washington will not alter the fact that the USA currently has neither the financial nor the military resources to stage yet another major war. Americans want jobs, not bodybags at the moment.

        Part 2 What the hells wrong with you? Take a viagra or grow some hair on your manly bits and learn how to oppose the genuine evil in this world.

        By the way, the Iranians are entitled to a civilian nuclear program. They are not entitled to the fuel cycle that produces weapons grade material. Because weapons grade material is used only in weapons, not civilian power plants or medicine. At least those are the terms of the treaty they signed years ago.

    • Howard

      Part 1 Yeah, your right. The Pres should just stand by while a theocracy develops a atomic weapon and nukes a democracy. We are powerless to stop any of this and any interference would just be futile and wrong. I mean its not like we have options other than having Americans come home in body bags. We simply don't have the technical expertise to,say, launch our own cyber attacks on Iran, or the intelligence to slip them some faulty parts for their atomic program, or the economic muscle to make sanctions work, or the military and diplomatic resources to support the Iranian opponents of the theocracy . Were just so very weak and self interested and timid.

      Lets just give up now, let the Jews suffer another flaming Holocaust (a nuclear oven this time, its so much faster than that old Nazi technology) and appease the Iranians in anyway we can, even if it means giving up democracy for sharia, or the Iranians will nuke us too. Thats where this is all eventually headed anyway.Better to submit now. Israeli civilians who have been nuked to radioactive dust don't need body bags. But thats okay as long as no American service member ever needs one.

          But, Jew haters never make sense.

          When they screw up, you are mad.
          When they do right, you are angry.
          When they do nothing, they are traitors.
          When they do something, they are butting in….And on, and on.

          Truly, its a laugh riot watching ilk like yourself who hate Israel, when its the answer to all of your Jewy issues. Imagine….all of the Jews in one place where you would not ever have to worry about them again, and you are against it?

          Discriminate against faith
          Discriminate against its brethren.
          Discriminate against any race. LMO, many Jews are Black and Hispanic

          If they drop their weapons, Israel is doomed because they are outnumbered, just as the Chinese outnumber us.

    Iran with nuclear weapon is Apocalipsis for all the world. They are ready to sacrifice MLN muslim to achieve "Islam will dominate the world". The opposition in Iran tried to change aytollas regime in 2010. Our leftists/socialist BHO did nothing to help them. But he help Muslim Brotherhood to kick off pro-western Mubarak. We need real change starting from WH occupier.

  • Dispozadaburka

    Obama and the Ringo Starr look alike are going to bring in the Mahdi.

  • teq

    There is no simple solution to this. America cannot launch a full-scale invasion of Iran like the one with Iraq. Romney won't be able to do that either. But there are a number of factors which will contribute to Iran's demise:
    1] Keep increasing the sanctions. They are starving Iran.
    2] More computer viruses. Iran has already been set back 3 years with Stutnex. Send more.
    3] When Assad falls, Iran will be more isolated
    4] Keep killing Iranian scientists (and how about Amadinejad too?)
    And the second Iran closes the Straits of Hormuz — Attack!
    Iran is a Dead Nation Walking.

    • Stephen_Brady

      I agree with you, teq, but we've got to be careful on your third point.

      Assad is a brute. There's no denying that. Consider, though, that the largest and most powerful of the Sunni factions in opposition in controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood. Assad is part of the Alawite minority. If the majority takes over in Syria, you might well see the Muslim Brotherhood threatening Israel from Cairo to Damascus.

      The Muslim Brotherhood has no love for Iran, but "new states" sometimes pick unlikely allies.

      • Matt

        As long as they do not try to build the bomb, that is the red line. Assad is a coward in 2007 Israel hit him and he did nothing, he gave Hizbullah weapons M-600/Scuds but he did nothing, killing unarmed women and children suits the role of a coward.

  • KKKK

    he way i see it, i support the idea of pmilitary option as on the table but not quite there (thoguh fast movign towards there). all options are dangeorus, as the autor broguht up. i am cocnerend greatly

  • Stephen_Brady

    There is another attack option, open to the Israelis (just as it's open to us). The destruction of Kharg Island, in the Persian Gulf, and its pumping stations on the mainland, would deprive Iran of 70-80% of its ability to export oil, and import gasoline. It would take at least a decade to replace, and would destroy the Iranian economy, likely bringing the theocracy in Tehran down.

    They threaten to close the Straits of Hormuz. But their "Straits" is Kharg Island.

  • Matt

    This is the madness of it, The US support the Syrian people, the FSA protect the people, the US says they want Assad gone, the US taxpayer pays for the LAF, Assad orders the LAF to attack the FSA inside Lebanon, so he can keep on killing civilians.

  • Nakba1948

    Can any of you Israel-firsters provide hard evidence that Iran is actually developing nuclear weapons? Or the does the thought of killing Muslims and plunging the world into war simply override facts and logic? You do know that the Ayatollah issued a fatwa against nuclear weapons. The regime in Iran may be oppressive, but they're not likely to deviate from religious mandate. Iran hasn't started a war in the Middle East for over 200 years. Israel, who is known to have an illegal stockpile of nuclear weapons, has attacked Syria, Egypt, Jordan, Palestine, Lebanon…shall I go on? Your hypocrisy is stunning but unsurprising. Zionists are logically and morally bankrupt.

    • NotaBene

      If they have to sacrifice every Jew in the world to kill one Muslim they wouldn't hesitate for a minute.

      • Nakba1948

        "Believing" in the Nakba is like believing in gravity; it exists independently of your belief in it. Did a Zionist state not proclaim itself on historical Palestine in 1948? Were not hundreds of thousands of Palestinians driven from their homes and ancestral lands, many of them brutally killed (e.g., Deir Yassin)? These events occurred, whether you believe they did or not.

      • nexus789

        Hardly. History and cold hard facts does not support that given the US predilection to direct and proxy wars. The US is associated with the death and maiming of millions since WW2. Iran has not invaded another country in hundreds of years and the unprovoked attack on Iran by Iraq was Western sponsored and supported.

        What underpins the recent US 'crusades' is a desire to steal and control other nations resources and dehumanize and kill people that believe in other religion – they are psychopathic killers.

        Iran in 1953 had an elected leader and a secular administration and this was overthrown by the US and UK in an attempt to regain control of Iran's oil and gas resources. This brought the Iranian monarch to power who then proceeded to murder and torture his own people.

        The crisis with Iran has its historical routes in US interference.

      Can you Islam-firsters just hop to the MEMRI website and view those videos of Iranian military parades with models of missiles labeled "Next Year In Jerusalem"? It's not that hard.

      "…killing Muslims and plunging the world into war…"

      Two redundant words in that quote. Remove "killing" and "and" to make it truthful.

      "The regime in Iran may be oppressive, but they're not likely to deviate from religious mandate."

      A religious mandate of not letting a land once under Islamic rule continue to be occupied by non-Muslims. Got that.

      "Israel, … has attacked Syria, Egypt, Jordan, Palestine, Lebanon…"

      Sure, like 9/11 was an inside job by the U.S. government. /sarc

      By the way, Israel = Palestine. Palestine, the land of the one and only true Palestinian nation, the Jewish nation, has been under attack by imperialist aggressors, the Arab colonist land-thieves who want to steal it from the only true Palestinians, the Jews.

      "Zionists are logically and morally bankrupt."

      Pot, kettle…

      "When Zionists care more about Jewish life and livelihood than they do about killing and humiliating Muslims, they will finally know peace and security."

      Liar. You want the Jews in Palestine either dead or second-class apartheid subjects under Islam's Jim Crow laws.

      "Were not hundreds of thousands of Palestinians driven from their homes…"

      No. The non-Jewish "Palestinian nation" fiction was only invented after 1949. Back then they were known as Arabs and nothing else.

      NotaBeanbag,

      "If they have to sacrifice every Jew in the world to kill one Muslim they wouldn't hesitate for a minute."

      this reply is to the commenters replying. I have some advice for you:

      when someone calling himself "nakba1948" asks you for "evidence" of Iran's nukes, it's a pretty safe bet that no matter what you tell him he's going to say "that's Zionist propaganda."

      in my opinion, these people should be ignored, as they have nothing to add to the conversation. hey Nakba! you forgot to mention the USS Liberty! points off!

    Why don't Tomahawks rain down on the next gathering of mullahs & Imanutjob??? Surely it can't be THAT hard to pinpoint their next seance time and location. Alternatively, why not take Iran with an EMP strike before they can do it to us? A relief effort could be prepared ahead of time to mitigate the effect on the population, and in the process the mullahs could be hunted down and despatched with 19th century weapons.

      Typical dumb American….willing to commit and countenance genocide against other people.

      Like all the tubby ex general and fat seal wannabees you seem to think that war is a video game. If you start a conflict with Iran it will not end. The US has not got the balls to invade and fight a protracted ground war in Iran. It would require the full mobilization of the US and a potentially million man army and result in tens of thousands of causalities.

      Also from an economic perspective the first bomb dropped on Iran means you lose. Oil and Gas prices will spike and supplies will be interrupted – this will crash the US economy.

      Hopefully if you do invade you will have to do all by yourself with no other support. Ready for conscription are you or your relatives.

  • John of Chaldea

    In the words of the late, great gen. Curtis E LeMay, "bomb 'em back to the Stone Age", and "Nuke 'em 'til they glow".

    Too bad Reagan isn't President; he was the ONE AMERICAN they were scared s**tless of. See, what Team Obama doesn't realize is that you don't have to bomb them; you just have to make them think you wii, and Reagan surely did. After blowing off President Peanutbrain, the Iranians let our hostages go about 5 minutes before Reagan was inaugurated. Obama is an arrogant narcissist who thinks he has superlative diplomatic skills. In reality (no Obamaworld) he is a neophyte on the order of the great appeaser, Neville Chamberlain. If he & his lefty media enablers steal the election, there will be a nuclear exchange in the world, quite possibly a terrorist attack on the U.s.

They are Muslim Brotherhood Sunni revolutionaries fighting a jihad against the Alawite regime for control Syria. Indeed, it is gross hyperbole like the above that destroys credibility, and since when do revolutionaries not consist of civilians. Indeed, who else revolts other than citizens?

    In any event, the USA needs to stop pussyfooting around and obliterate the the ruling Mullah regime for murdering thousands of Americans, destroy Iran's nuclear weapons program, and be done with it, and in that case it would be better to let Assad stay in power to keep a lid on the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria.

    Like it or not, Israel has been a light unto the nations, and the world is to blame for their willful blindness. Everything Muslims have been saying and doing to Israel the past 60 years, is now made exposed in western countries. We didn't help Israel and we supported Muslims at the UN, creating false, deathly doctrines of Muslim Palestinians and demanding serial 2-states in the same tiny land.

    The world should have restored the Balfour Mandate, protect Christian Lebanon and demand a Coptic state in Egypt instead. After all, Europe installed these regimes the last 100 years, all 22 countries to one Islamic family, all 22 states are fictional and never existed 100 years ago. There are a host of non-Muslim nations in the M/E which predate Islam – what about their rights? We need to boot out the present pundits and get some real people in the oval office and the EU.

    Because it makes economic sense. Oil and Gas will be more valuable as a source of export revenues in the future for Iran rather than being burnt for energy. As the price of oil rises it will become more valuable for all the things it is used for other than an energy source – pesticides, drugs, plastics…well everything you consume has a direct and indirect relationship to oil.

    The other thing the Iranians could have done is develop Thorium based reactors rather than use Uranium. However, the technology to do this is American but the Chinese are fast catching up. Point is you can't build bombs using a Thorium fuel cycle.

    It is staggering that the US even bothers with Israel. Its whole foreign policy stance and international relationships are distorted by this meaningless association.

    You are a moron….take a look at the right wing religious idiots in the US. Their beliefs are a mirror of the crap you have written. All religion is a pox on humanity. Stuff that is only parroted by numpties like you.
