Israel prepares to strike Iran from Gulf and N. Iraq
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report

"According to these Egyptian sources, Saudi Arabia has demanded clarifications from Washington about reported US-assisted Israeli preparations to strike Iran and asks why they were not brought to the notice of Riyadh and the Gulf Arab governments.
The Saudis added that several Gulf intelligence and naval units had tracked Israeli movements and gathered documentary evidence."
 
Mary have you found any evidence that the U.S. is actually going to be a part of this attack campaign against Iran?  And if so what part are they taking?  I thought maybe Israel was going to at this alone....but it looks like maybe not?   Also I can't help wondering if this sudden movement of Israel has something to do with stopping this FEB. 11 suprise that the Iran leader was talking about? Thanks, Tip

'Strike on Iran would not help Israel’
AMIR MIZROCH
05/02/2010 06:12
http://www.jpost.com/Israel/Article.aspx?id=167870

Former Swiss ambassador to Iran deeply concerned Israel may act militarily.

< = =text/> var artID = document.URL.split('id='); showInitialOdiogoReadNowFrame('396242, 401831, 401889, 401989, 401877, 401914, 401946, 402019', artID[1], 290, 0); < id=_odiogo_167870 height=0 ="" Border=0 width=290 name=_odiogo_167870 scrolling=no>
An Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear program will neither completely stop Teheran’s nuclear march, nor bring down the ayatollahs’ regime, according to former Swiss ambassador to Iran Tim Guldimann.

Speaking to The Jerusalem Post on the sidelines of this week’s Herzliya Conference, Guldimann, who knows the Iranian way of thinking well, expressed – as a personal opinion – his deep concern about the military option against Iran.

Guldimann was Swiss ambassador to Iran and Afghanistan from 1999 to 2004. As ambassador to Teheran, Guldimann – now senior adviser and head of the Middle East Project at the Center for Humanitarian Dialogue, Geneva – represented US interests in Iran, acting as a go-between. He gained notoriety for a memorandum he transmitted to the US in 2003, which posited an alleged Iranian proposal for a broad dialogue with the US, with everything on the table – including full cooperation on nuclear programs, acceptance of Israel and the termination of Iranian support for Palestinian armed groups. The proposal was rejected by the Bush administration.

According to Guldimann, the position that unless the international community stops Iran’s nuclear program, Israel would have to do it alone is based on the unproven assumption that Iran will actually go down the road of having a nuclear weapon at its disposal.

“My understanding is that they will not go as far as that. If you say that there is [in Iran] a clear policy of achieving a nuclear capability, I would fully agree. You can define that as a breakout period. But will they make a political decision to produce a bomb? Such a breakout is an absolutely different question,” he says.

So what options does Israel have?

“The old stick-and-carrot approach hasn’t helped at all. You can speak about sanctions, but they have not changed Iran’s position. Sanctions often seem to have more the purpose of, in the West, an argument to Israel [that things are moving],” he notes. “The counter-argument is force. If Israel goes for a military option, I’m really, deeply concerned that there is this assumption that it will help.

“Let’s use the security of Israel as the only yardstick for assessing the situation. A military attack can damage [the Iranian nuclear program] but you can’t stop it. It is an industry with tens of thousands of people in it. You can damage and you can delay. You can even argue that you can bash it once, twice, maybe three times. And you can come back and do it again, if you think it’s like a little boy that keeps on coming out and you bash him every time. But the world might be a totally different place [after a first attack],” Guldimann says.

Guldimann – again in his personal opinion – contends that even in a situation of civil unrest and popular opposition to the regime in Iran, an outside attack would not bring down the regime.

“That’s not the Iranian way. It has to be kept in mind that if there is an outside attack on the regime, internal opposition within the regime, and opposition to the regime in general, will all fall in line with the regime. They will close ranks. On the nuclear issue, [opposition figure Mir Hossein] Mousavi is more hard-line than [President Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad. If there is an outside attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities, the Iranian people would feel tremendously humiliated. And if Israel today has got a regime against it, it will then not only have a regime against it, but also a country against it. An attack on Iran would be very good for Ahmadinejad. He will get the foreign enemy he is always talking about.

“For the Iranian population, being bombed will bring back memories of their war with Iraq. Before the US invasion of Iraq, there were those in Iran who called for the Americans to topple the regime in Teheran, too. But the first day that Iranians saw how Iraq was bombed, those calls largely disappeared. Now, if Iranians saw Israeli bombs, and not only on Natanz – how far would a bombing campaign go? – this would not topple Ahmadinejad. If the regime doesn’t do anything [to outwardly provoke an attack] and all of a sudden Iran is attacked, the people will rally around the regime and the regime will be safe,” he says, adding that it is still too early to determine where the Iranian political development is heading.

“We also can assume that outside political interference will only serve the regime to solidify its hold on power. All the fuss about regime change from the outside is very dangerous,” he argues.

According to Guldimann, Israel’s security in the long term would not be enhanced by an attack on Iran’s nuclear program. Iran’s reaction to such an attack would likely be multi-layered and long-lasting, he says.

Assessments in Israel are that Iran is inflating its military power to deter any attack, creating a perception that a military strike on its nuclear program would elicit a devastating response – not only on Israel, but on US forces in the region, as well as US allies in the Gulf. While such a response is expected to be painful, assessments in Jerusalem are that it would not actually be as harsh as Teheran would like the international community to believe.

Guldimann believes Iran may retaliate in other, non-direct ways. It may act in the Straits of Hormuz to raise the price of oil, he says.

“It could also be that immediately they don’t do anything, but instead go to the UN and work on the sympathy it would garner. But they will make sure that oil prices go up. If you have a far higher oil price for a long period of time, this would affect the fragile world economic environment. Then you could have, all of a sudden, public opinion to factor in. Western governments are with Israel, but what will the people in Europe think? In the Middle East, the backlash could have more immediate consequences,” Guldimann says.

“The Iranians like to play on the sentiments of the Arab masses,”  he explains. “In the event of an Israeli attack on Iran, Arab regimes might be quietly welcoming, but it is not known what will happen on the Arab street – what will happen in Egypt for example. On the Arab street, Ahmadinejad is a hero, and he will play that card.”

Guldimann’s contends that the best way for Israel to solve its Iran problem is to solve the Palestinian issue.

“The whole region will remain a problem unless the Palestinian issue is solved. For the Iranians, the Palestinian issue is a bargaining chip. They know that Israel is a reality in the region. Their positions are not more radical than those of Hamas. Hamas is starting to speak about the ’67 borders,” he says.

Guldimann further expresses his opinion that if Israel were to attack Iran, no one in the region would believe it was done without the consent of the US.

“It’s just not credible. Even if America gives Israel the red light, and Israel still does it, nobody would believe that a red light was really given. The military option could lead to a disaster. If, however, the international community is ready to accept Iran with a nuclear capacity as an interlocutor, there is a chance that the breakout can be avoided,” he suggests.

“I do not deny the risks involved [in] living with a nuclear industry in Iran,” he says. “But I prefer this second-best solution to confrontation, which leads nowhere.”

FM: Assad's regime will collapse if he provokes Israel
 

Lieberman says Syrian counterpart's claim that Israel's cities will be targeted if a war breaks out constitutes 'crossing of red line'; claims Syria must give up on its demand for Israeli withdrawal from Golan Heights

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman warned Syrian President Bashar Assad Thursday that in an event of war with Israel, "not only will you lose the war, you and your family will no longer be in power."

 

Speaking during a business conference at Bar-Ilan University, Lieberman said, "Whoever thinks (Israeli) territorial concessions will separate Syria from the axis of evil is mistaken. Syria must be made to understand that it has to relinquish its demand (that Israel cede) the Golan Heights."

Regime in Damascus
Assad: Israel pushing region towards war / Roee Nahmias
Syrian president meets with Spanish foreign minister in Damascus, tells him Jewish state 'is not serious about achieving peace and all facts point to it being the one pushing the region towards war.' PM's Office says remarks 'unfortunate'

 

On Wednesday Assad accused Israel of “pushing the region towards war”. During a meeting with Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Moratinos in Damascus, Assad said that the Jewish state "is not serious about achieving peace”.

 

Assad spoke just hours after his foreign minister, Walid Moallem, said that "Israel knows that if it declares war on Syria, such a war will reach its cities as well."

 

The Syrian minister was responding to remarks made by Defense Minister Ehud Barak earlier this week. Speaking at a forum of senior IDF commanders, Barak said a full-blown war with Syria was possible in case a peace agreement is not reached.

 

Lieberman said Moallem's remarks constitute a "blatant threat against Israel," adding, "(Syria) has crossed a red line; and we cannot ignore this."

 

Addressing the Iranian threat, the foreign minister called Tehran the "root of the problem."

"I don’t even want to think what the price of oil will be when Iran will have a (nuclear) bomb. There is also the fear that Iranian (nuclear) weapons will reach extremist groups," he said.

 

"The international community must make some clear decisions. There are no more excuses," Lieberman said.

 

The Kadima party said in response to Lieberman's statements regarding Syria,"The Netanyahu government is playing with fire."

  

"Instead of calming matters down, (the government) enflames them further. Netanyahu must rise above his political problems and order the end of vehement and irresponsible statements by state leaders," the party's statement read.

 

Referring to Lieberman, Labor MK Eitan Cabel urged Netanyahu to "stop this warmonger," adding, "We cannot have such a senseless man who does not appreciate

the importance of peace with Syria and the danger of entering into war with it, in such a sensitive post."

 

MK Talab El-Sana (United Arab List-Ta'al) said that Lieberman is "a dangerous blabbermouth who may drag the region into an unnecessary war. The prime minister must restrain him, and if he is unable to do so, than he must fire him."

lmost everybody think that Israeli attack on Iran is a bad idea; I want to hear what Obama thinks, and for Israel openly talking about the attack is going against all of the military logic. Usually is you are ready to attack or start a war you do in secrecy, on the other hand if you not ready and you are afraid you would make the other side believe that you do. So its no go for me all this is a smoke screen. If the attack would be in the works I would think the price of Oil would go up, the commodity people would probably got wind of it. I bet US top generals are not looking to see another war and more instability.
On the other hand someone maybe reassuring Israelis that is ok to do it and go ahead
So far they were lucky with Iraq and Syria and they still have a holocaust mentality,
Weather wise the best time for the strike is now, airplanes would be able to have more loads in cold winter air. The Feb 11 will be the interesting date Iran is planning to present the West with something

NOAA%20CLOUDS

This NOAA satellite image taken Thursday, February 4, 2010 at 12:45 PM EST shows fairly widespread cloud coverage over most of the East as low pressure continues to interact with increasing gulf moisture. This combo continues to pound areas from eastern Texas through northern Georgia with long periods of substantial rainfall. Meanwhile, colder air to the north mixes with this rich stream of moisture to produce swaths of freezing rain and light snowfall in the Central Plains and the Mid-Mississippi Valley. Outside of this stormy weather activity, high pressure moves into the Northeast with drier and fair weather conditions. (AP Photo/Weather Underground) (AP / February 4, 2010)

Shutting Down... I remember.  2 inches or the word ice.. sent everyone scurrying for batteries and food.  The electricity goes off... and you put a mattress in front of the fireplace and hang sheets over the doroways ..to keep heat in the living room.  The kids don't seem to mind, camping out a few days.   We cooked on the Barbie..on the deck.
