President Obama stopped Israel from launching an attack on Irans nuclear facilities a year ago, according to the then head of Israels National Security Council, Gen. Giora Eiland. Gen. Eiland spoke with Israeli journalist Rotem Sella, a former former senior writer for the daily Maariv, at the Daily Capitalist blog on the Mida online news site. Some quickly-translated extracts from Sellas report are below:
Exclusive: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was about to order an attack on Iran in September 2012, but canceled the operation in response to U.S. pressure, the former head of Israels National Security Council said last month. Gen. Giora Eiland (retired) added that Israel has a real ability to destroy Irans nuclear program, and that it is possible that the American veto was related to the presidential election then in progress.
At the time [September 2012] the Prime Minister thought that we had gotten to a critical point on the Iranian issue and planned to carry out attacks, Gen. Eiland said at a closed-door conference held on August 19, adding that Israel did not have in principle approval of U.S. military operations, unless Americans require one cut prevented any action. According to Eiland, the issue was raised at a meeting between Netanyahu and the Americans, who said that the planned attack was out of the question for them, which led to its cancellation.

“Don’t worry Israel (Iran), I have your back...”
Obama at an AIPAC meeting last year
The man has ZERO credibility.
At that time, Obama’s chronys in the muslim brotherhood were not intent on taking over the country. Now that they have that objective, Obama is in favor of the overthrow of Assad
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
“it is possible that the American veto was related to the presidential election then in progress”
Why does Israel need our “permission”?
I thought Israelis were smarter than to let the Prophet Obunghole interfere in their own self preservation.
But then again, American Jews voted 70+% for this Jew hating president so who am I to question their intelligence?
The simple fact of the matter is that, even if Congress does approve an attack on Syria, it is not going to impact the world's assessment of our president's 'credibility' one whit.
Everybody knows he's a pathetic weakling. And that opinion isn't going to change...
Because they need American military prowess, intelligence information to help make any attack on Iran successful. Israel can not go on an attack against Iran completely alone.
satan’s boy obama dancing to the evil flute.
So I am a fool so that make the damned 70+% of Jews in the USA what?
