Israel Must Not Strike Iran Without U.S. Permission
Haaretz ^ | October 9, 2011 | By Amir Oren

Posted on 10/09/2011 3:01:59 AM PDT by Fennie

When people in Israel are pondering whether to embark on a hasty and unnecessary war against Iran, they should study well the unfortunate case of 1973 from two perspectives - the domestic and the American.

I doubt Iran would ever strike Israel first. They are sneaky, underhanded backstabbers with no stomach for an open confrontation with anyone. The Iranian leadership would rather supply some else with the means and then sit back and watch the carnage.

They aren't belligerent the way Saddam was.

“War is deceit,” ... the article shows that Anwar Sadat, Golda Meir, Henry Kissinger, Moshe Dayan .. they were all being deceitful with one another during and after the Yom Kippur War.

I don’t think this president or this country has the right to tell them what to do.

I’m sure if Bibi told Obama going into Libya and Egypt re: Arab caliphate, not Spring, was a bad idea, he would have listened. /s

I agree, besides, how will they fight a war with Israel if their navy is off the coast of Florida spying?

Israel must do what they feel will allow them to survive.

Other posters are right. Why should Iran attack Israel, any more that they attacked Iraq or Afghanistan?

They just supply the weapons and stir the pot and let the other idiots get killed doing the attacking. But just as in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Iranians are in the war, they are just letting others do the fighting.

Give notice to Obama so he can call Iran and make sure they’re ready.

Israel can do whatever it needs to protect itself from a spoken nuclear threat of annihilation and the nations of the world and ObaHamas and co. can go pound sand.

Whatever Israel needs to do to protect herself, she should and MUST do.

As for getting America’s permission, screw that. Obama may be the self-styled king of America, but his rule doesn’t extend to Israel.

FUBO

The Iranians let others act as their cat’s paw because they if they openly attack America again like they did in 1979, they know they would get a massive shipment of whipass since there is no longer a Soviet Union around to restrain the U.S. these days.

They may be contemptuous of us, but they are are also scared witless of current U.S. military capabilities. They are like little kids taunting a muscular giant because they believe that he is restrained from striking back by social and legal considerations. They just know better than to do something like sink a U.S. ship or openly attack an American airliner.

Maybe Israel should shut Haaretz down for treason.

“they are just letting others do the fighting.”

That is fact that they let the arabs blow themselves up and kill more arabs because they are PERSIANS! To bad the arabs are too blind to see this. n/s

HaEretz, the left hand of journalism in Israel. Unfortunately Israel has only left hands, as they used their political pull to chop off the right hands. Who needs balance when you have the shining truth?

Thanks Fennie.

Apparently the author’s never heard of Stuxnet.
