    Israeli Hints at Preparation to Stop Iran

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 6:57 pm

    While the U.N. inspectors stall, the U.S. hides out at the U.N., and the E.U. writes strongly worded letters, Israel is preparing once again to take care of the world’s problem for them. The A.P., eager to blame Israel for anything and everything, doesn’t even wait for the Israelis to take action before blaming them for “adding to growing tensions” in the Middle East (Iran’s nuke program couldn’t be the source of growing tensions). Forcing Israel to defend itself and take out Iran’s nukes is a win-win situation for the rest of the world and for the world media. They can go back to feeling safe while accusing Bush of being too paranoid about the terrorist threat, and blame Israel for stirring up hostilities in the Middle East.

    Israel’s defense minister hinted Saturday that the Jewish state is preparing for military action to stop Iran’s nuclear program, but said international diplomacy must be the first course of action.

    “Israel will not be able to accept an Iranian nuclear capability and it must have the capability to defend itself, with all that that implies, and this we are preparing,” Shaul Mofaz said.

    His comments at an academic conference stopped short of overtly threatening a military strike but were likely to add to growing tensions with Iran.

    Germany’s defense minister said in an interview published Saturday that he is hopeful of a diplomatic solution to the impasse over Iran’s nuclear program, but argued that “all options” should remain open.

    Iran broke U.N. seals at a uranium enrichment plant Jan. 10 and said it was resuming nuclear research after a 2 1/2-year freeze. Germany, France and Britain said two days later that talks aimed at halting Iran’s nuclear progress were at a dead end and called for Iran’s referral to the U.N. Security Council.

    The International Atomic Energy Agency, the U.N. nuclear watchdog, will meet Feb. 2 to discuss possible referral.

    Israel’s Mofaz said sanctions and international oversight of Iran’s nuclear program stood as the “correct policy at this time.”

    Sanctions and international oversight have never worked. They will “oversee” seals being broken, a nuke program progressing, and finally a nuke being launched, all while getting rich off of a sanction program with 900 levels of bureaucracy created to hide bribes and embezzlement.
