Netanyahu’s Red Line

Pages: 1 2

At the start of Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s speech to the UN General Assembly on Thursday, he seemed less than fully focused, at times a little creaky in his delivery.

The content of his words was unobjectionable. It had not been the easiest week for the Israeli Jewish people. The UN had picked Wednesday—Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year on the Jewish calendar—to schedule yet another address by Iran’s Holocaust-denying, genocide-inciting president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, with only Israel itself, and the United States and Canada, seeing fit to have their delegates absent themselves from the harangue.

And just before Netanyahu’s speech, Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas had taken the podium for yet another anti-Israeli screed, saying Palestinians were “facing relentless waves of attacks against our people, our mosques, churches and monasteries, and our homes and schools; they are unleashing their venom against our trees, fields, crops and properties, and our people have become fixed targets for acts of killing and abuse with the complete collusion of the occupying forces and the Israeli government”—and much more of the same.

In Abbas’s case, the irony is that the target of his vituperation, Israel, is now the main force keeping his Palestinian Authority from financial collapse. Israel continues to see the PA as the lesser evil compared to a breakdown resulting in chaos, riots, attacks on Israeli security forces and civilians, and a further strengthening of Hamas. Abbas, despite the indispensable helping hand from Jerusalem, keeps pushing the standard, decades-old Fatah line of across-the-board demonization of the Jewish state—while seeking a nonmember status in the UN that flouts all the Israeli-Palestinian agreements so diligently produced with the help of earnest American peace processors.

Israelis and Palestinians “won’t solve our conflicts with libelous speeches at the UN,” Netanyahu said in that first, less heartfelt part of his speech, while again repeating his formula of a “two-state solution” between Israel and a “demilitarized” Palestinian state that would recognize Israel’s validity as a Jewish state—a formula that has always been disconnected from reality and is aimed at positioning Israel as the party genuinely seeking peace, while riskily adding legitimacy to the concept of further dividing an already tiny and besieged Israel.

So much for Abbas; Netanyahu responded as well to Ahmadinejad’s allegations earlier in the week about Israel as a country lacking “roots” in the region that stands to be “eliminated.” The Israeli prime minister emphasized the Jewish people’s deep rootedness in the Land of Israel, their combining loyalty to their traditions with cutting-edge creativity in high tech, medicine, and agriculture, while contrasting that with “the medieval forces of radical Islam whom you saw storming embassies in the Middle East,” forces that “want to destroy freedom and end the modern world.”

It was solid but unoriginal stuff, clear to realistic Israelis and Americans and perhaps a smattering of Europeans. But it was when he got to the real focus of his speech—Iran’s nuclear program—that Netanyahu’s manner became much more artful and nuanced; one felt this was his real reason for coming to New York and, justifiably enough, his overriding preoccupation.

“For nearly a decade,” he said, “the international community has tried to stop the Iranian nuclear program with diplomacy. That hasn’t worked. Iran uses diplomatic negotiations as a means to buy time to advance its nuclear program.”

      A simple bomb graphic is necessary for United Nations delegates who it seems have difficulty grasping even the most elementary concepts like genocide-inciting, apocalyptic, Holocaust-denying, etc.

        And for the "47%" who get their current event information from Lady Gaga and Snooki. How about this?… Maybe the PM will pull a fast one and say.. "Ooops, we decided to move the "red line" up closer… the bombing will commence immediately.

            Not that I know of. But I am a member of the Pratt family out of Utah, which, sadly, makes me a distant cousin of Willard Romney.

          • trickyblain

            Nice to see you too, RM. Glad to hear you're exporting to China; they are in dire need of quality machining. I spent all day last Saturday putting together some exercise equipment from Everlast (which I wrongly thought was USA made). Faulty fasteners eventually made me swap them out at the local hardware store that reminds me of the one I worked at in college. Seems there's no pride in workmanship in China (or any communist country, for obvious reasons).

            As far as the 47 percent goes, I find the term patently offensive (I don't offend very easily). My parents worked hard and did very well; they paid into Social Security for decades and decades. They are part of the "dependent" 47 percent for getting back what they paid into. Of course there's also my friend/coworker that spent over 20 years as a NCO nuke tech on aircraft carriers for the Navy. He gets a pension — tell him he's dependent and you'll get a salty reaction. But Mitt never hung around those types. Likewise, I sincerely doubt my housekeeper pays income taxes in April; she likely gets a return. Dependent?

            Nice to have a civil conversation in this crazy atmosphere…thanks bud.

            normal people find it offensive that marxists are destroying the country by employing demagoguery machine and outright plunder. and, by the way, people who don't pay taxes, are not paid into anything. but look at the standard demagoguery: when marxists spread the wealth, they spend the money on acorn, free cell phones to leaches and cronies at solyndras. but they always blame conservatives for trying to hurt veterans, policemen and firefighters, when in fact they are the ones syphoning money from their safety net. same with medicare.

    Eric Margolis writes: … Twenty years ago, in 1992, Netanyahu declared Iran would deploy nuclear weapons in 3-5 years. In 1995, Israeli officials warned Iran would have nuclear arms by 2000. In 1998, US Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld warned that Iran would have intercontinental ballistic missiles with nuclear warheads by 2003 that could strike the United States. Netanyahu now insists Iran will have nukes within a year. US intelligence denies this claim. Even biased UN nuclear inspectors say Iran has no nukes. …

    • Dr. John

      Netanyahu’s account of the current situation is based on reports of the IAEA, which under Yukiya Amano is an objective body beholden to no government. The main reason it has taken Iran this long to approach the nuclear threshold is that sabotage actions slowed them down, without ultimately stopping them. Obviously, Iran continues to invest great resources in its nuclear program despite debilitating sanctions. If this doesn’t light a red light, nothing will.

  • clarespark

    I don't agree with the premise that the beginning of Netanyahu's speech was creaky at all. His drawing of the conflict between Israel and that of Iran and the Arab States as encompassed in the clash of modernity versus medievalism was exactly how I have formulated the major conflict of our time. Here is a recent example:…. "What is a materialist." Also…. "Thought Police on Fox."

    Perhaps you all would like a short report from the swamp, were the real McCoy is. We are it in Eretz Israel.
    For the informed, and I am a former US Department of Defense Military Avionics Programs Senior-Fellow Engineer with extended training otherwise… The speech was utterly irrelevant to knowledgeable Israelis, starting with a very poor first part including certain BL signs I prefer not extend upon and ending with a nonsensical cartoon lined red with an erasable marker. 90% of what? Iran has mastered tube triggers and quite likely the trigger charges. It has enough 20% U235 to make a very simple nuclear bomb probably similar to the one originally tested by NK. Iran was there for the test. Iran will soon if not now move to 55-60% and from there to 85-90% soon after.
    The UN watchdog wants to visit Parchin. All believe the Iranians tested there Polonium triggers.
    So the "90%" cartoon means what?
    At the time of imminent nuclear dangers silly charts have no place. That is why I propose that it was a very intelligent misdirection act. I HOPE SO…

    • WildJew

      Israel's prime minister appears to be placing his faith in the goodwill and the assurances of the United States on Iran. Hope I am wrong. This, I believe, would prove a deadly error. I don't think the Americans (leaders or the people) see a nuclear Iran as either an existential threat or a mortal threat to the United States. George W. Bush sent his surrogates out (Admiral Mike Mullen, etc.) to warn Israel off attacking Iran's nuclear sites. How much more Barack Obama? Obama's sympathies are clearly with Islam and I believe Iran's Mullahs. Obama did nothing to help the green movement when they begged him to take their side against the regime, yet he demanded Mubarak step down immediately to make way for Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Obama is furthering the most extreme interpretation of Islam in the region and not by accident in my opinion. He cannot be trusted. When the prime minister says things like "I very much appreciate the president’s position, as does everyone in my country,” it makes me very uneasy. If Israel does not act against Iran, Iran will join the nuclear club. One day, Americans might see nuclear weapons detonated in their cities and then ask why someone did not stop Iran.

      • Roger

        I for one, I see Iran as a threat to all life on the planet. They fund terror everyplace they touch and with the US viewed as the great satan, it's a matter of when they can attack – not if.

        • WildJew

          Thanks for the correction. I should have written, some Americans do indeed see Iran as a threat. I am not sure you are in the majority. We'll see. If Obama is re-elected, I don't know what to conclude other than Americans are OK with a man who is bent on breaking this nation and furthering Muslim Brotherhood influence at home and abroad. This does not bode well for a great people..

  • pierce

    I, for one, agree with Netanyahu's premise. Iran is very close to completing their nuclear plant, and with a tyrant named Ahmadinejad for a leader, don't trust the Iranian madman. Of course there was a holocaust, and to deny that, one can't be playing with a full deck. Unfortunately since 1978 or 1979, Iran has been acting like it is the kid on the street who does not belong. Poh boy, yes, but do not feel sorry for them, they dug their own grave. I for one don't know why China and Russia back such a destructive nation.

    • fiddler

      So, if God-forbid a nuclear bomb explodes in this nation, who his Obama going to blame? Certainly not himself.

  • oldtimer

    Netanyahu is a brilliant, honorable man, who cares for his country and it's people. He expressed his point in a way that the idiots he was speaking to could understand. Too bad I can't say the same for Mr. O.

  • Dana Harbaugh

    Red line on a workable Nuke is good. But what level of uranium enrichment is needed for an effective "Dirty Bomb"… What's to stop Iran from giving their E. U. to terrorists for use in Dirty Bomb attacks? I'm no nuclear expert, but the scenarios I've read of include Dirty Bombs creating "uninhabitable" cities with nothing more than conventional explosives and radioactive material… a scenario Las Vegas has been worried about since 9-11.

  • amused

    I agree with a previous poster Netanyahu gave Israel's estimate about how far they feel the Iran program has come , and how much farther it will go before Israel pre-empts the threat . When a nuclear program seeks to go beyond 20% enrichment , that is a sign they're attempting to produce weapons grade Uranium . Iran has achieved 20% enrichment and is proceeding to go beyond that .Israel will know , before IAEC , and before the US ,when Iran reaches that point ….and he DREW A PICTURE . Israel's REDLINE , the point at which Israel will attack .with or without ANYONES approval . What the Iranians are not thinking about is that Israel has nukes whether it be 50 or 100 , Iran has one shot , which if on target will devastate a major city of Israel , after that Iran will cease to exist .

      I just wish that the Iranian resistance could over-throw the the little dictator.

    WHERE ARE THE WORLD’S ANTI-NUKE/WAR PROTESTERS? Isn't it easier to stop a country from building one in the first place than it is to demand they dismantle the ones they have already built?

    Some of these same protest movements scream “NO WAR ON IRAN,” but isn’t the reason there could be “war on Iran” is because of their pursuit to build nukes? Doesn’t it then stand to REASON that if they don’t want “war on Iran” then they need to protest them acquiring one in the first place? Maybe they too want to “wipe Israel off the map?” Problem: THESE GROUPS ARE OBAMA'S BASE!

    Netanyahu spent a quarter of his speech on legitimizing Israel’s right to exist, the good they do around the world, and Arabs who come to Israel for medical attention. Three-quarters of his speech was on Iran’s nuclear program and their threat to world peace. IF IRAN USES A NUKE, then there will be a World War III and fought with nukes turning the Middle East into GREEN GLASS.

    (At Trinity Site near Socorro, NM, my birthplace, the world’s first atomic bomb melted the sand into green glass called Trinitite which I own several pieces. The site is open twice a year.)

    Mahmoud Abbas actually said to the U.N. that Palestinians were “facing relentless waves of attacks against our people, our mosques, churches and monasteries…?"

    He actually had the nerve to mention churches and monasteries? I bet that was a first. So who is that's attacking the churches and monasteries? I bet it's not the Israelis…

      Abbas was just projecting and playing the blame game in order to draw sympathy from the international community. Abbas needs to know that the free world doesn't play games with despotic regimes.

    The hypocrisy and moral cowardice of the un never ceases to amaze. Why is it still located in the United States and why does the American taxpayer provide nearly a fourth of its budget, much of which is used to overpay un bureaucrats who are dedicated to condemning western democracy? The democracies should leave the un and establish their own international organization. Without western financial support the current un would quickly disintegrate, thus doing the world and humanity a big favor. And we would no longer be required to have genocidal sociopaths and Holocaust deniers contaminate our soil.

  • Bert

    We must realize that the prospect of Iran nuking Israel is NOT at all unthinkable or objectionable for many nations. Their major concern is their business connections. Recall that up to the start of WWII many nations including the U.S. (IBM and General Motors) were happy to do business with Hitler.
    Israel's problem is that everyone feels free to pressure and threaten them. People fear Muslims and especially Iran. Perhaps it is time for the world to fear Israel more than they fear Iran.
    Israel relies too much on the world being moral and logical when in reality it is fear and greed that is the stronger motivating force. When it comes to national survival in an evil world Israel owes nothing to anyone.

    Benjamin Netanyahu made a very straight forward and easy to understand case for Israel's self defense, and why it is important not to allow Iran to obtain a nuclear weapon, and what it means for the rest of the world if they do.

    Iran is a mad dog of the mideast. It not only has Uranium,Plutonium,Cobalt and other nuclear and/or radioactive stuff to dump on people, but also has the old fashioned ,but effective, methods such as germs and chemicals. Diplomacy with rabid mad dogs is not a sane procedure.

    The Wall Street Journal coverage of the Bibi address was unfriendly and inaccurate. I showed their photo and the headline here:…. They not only ignored the important distinction he made between modern and medieval societies, they matched him with Abbas, claiming that little was said about peace negotiations, though Bibi had specifically mentioned that a Palestinian State would have to be demilitarized. It is my view that the WSJ consciously or unconsciously identified Bibi with hostile depictions of the Old Testament Jewish God.

    Are our bunkder-buster bombs (or those of the Israelis) capable of accurate delivery to the point where a bunker-buster can be dropped, strike its target, then another can be delivered in the same place, then another and another, in order to overcome deeply-emplaced sites? A nuclear bunker-buster (which I know we have) would do the trick, but I bet the U.S. would not ever use a nuclear bomb to destroy Iran's nuclear capacity.

    Could a MOAB or a BLU-82 cause deep underground facilities to collapse? Do we have bombs that will perform such a task, like the British tallboys in World War II?
