cue the lightning bolts

the only question that matters: is it true?

Iran has signed the NPT. As a signatory to the NPT, Iran may rightfully, legally, use nuclear technology for peaceful energy purposes. Iran has submitted to and passed repeated IAEA inspections. The US intelligence community (NIE) does not consider Iran a nuclear threat. Israel refuses to sign the NPT. Israel has an estimated several hundred undeclared nuclear weapons. Russia and China have warned that an attack on Iran will have global consequences. That's the situation in a nutshell. Where to next, people? Where to?

Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth? - Galatians 4:16


looks like the options are narrowing

1. Israel shows *restraint* after latest rocket from Southern Lebanon

JERUSALEM, Oct. 28 (Xinhua) -- Israel responded with limited fire towards the source of a rocket launched from southern Lebanon on Tuesday night. It was the ninth reported attack on Israel from Lebanese territory since the end of fighting between Israel and the south-Lebanon-based Hezbollah in 2006.

Four additional Katyusha rockets were found on Wednesday close to Tuesday's launch site. The discovery was made by a joint tour of officers from the Lebanese army and the UN Interim Force in Lebanon, according to Lebanese and Israeli media reports.

Analysts are now wondering for how long Israel will show restraint in the face of these attacks for which no one claims responsibility.

...There are three directions in which Israel should look when trying to ascertain the source of the Katyusha strikes, according to Azani: Hezbollah, Palestinian organizations and the Lebanese arm of global Jihad. All three have reasons to gain from inciting Israel, he claimed.

heh - missed one: ISRAEL - crying and shooting, read more @ chinaview

2. Israel files complaint against Lebanon for suspicious rocket

Once again, in the world of "fairness" and "justice," the Israeli enemy seeks to assume the role of the "victim," turning the real "victims" into "tyrants"…

Thus, Israel has the right to violate the international resolution 1701 day and night and violate the Lebanese sovereignty in a daily basis… Israel has the right to plant spies and espionage networks all over Lebanon… Israel has the right to declare publicly, and even to inform the United Nations, that it will continue its spying networks in Lebanon… Israel has the right to "provoke" and to "threaten" a whole nation…

All these "rights" are granted to Israel… Yet, it has also the right to become the "victim" and file "complaints" against others with the "funny" accusation of violation the international resolution Israel itself seems to be proud of violating day and night…

Thus, when a rocket falls down at the northern border with Southern Lebanon, Israel is the "victim"… The incident comes a few hours after a "provocative" visit made to the region by the Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak who didn't hesitate to "threaten" Lebanon claiming readiness for any new "confrontation"… It also comes a few hours after the Israeli media revealed that the Israeli authorities told the United Nations that Israel will continue its spying activities in South Lebanon… Yet, Israel gives itself the right to file a complaint against Lebanon over the rocket attack, just like if it was the "provoked victim"!

3. Clinton due in Israel. US leaning toward 'indirect' talks

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will arrive in the occupied Palestinian territories on Saturday night for her first official visit since Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's government was sworn in. Clinton's visit underscores the goal of reaching a compromise that could see the resumption of “peace talks” between Israel and the Palestinians.

In light of the ever-wide gaps between the Israeli and Palestinian sides, voices are growing within the Obama administration to shift strategy and suffice with indirect - rather than direct - negotiations. The secretary of state is now taking a more active role in the diplomatic process in the Middle East, which has thus far been overseen by special envoy George Mitchell.

Mitchell is due to arrive in “Israel” on Thursday for preparatory discussions prior to Clinton's trip. Clinton is expected to meet Netanyahu, Defense Minister Ehud Barak and President Shimon Peres on Sunday. Before her arrival in “Israel”, Clinton will take part in a meeting of Arab foreign ministers in Morocco.

4. Syria ready to resume talks with Israel

ZAGREB - Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said here Wednesday his country was ready to resume suspended talks with Israel and called on European nations to help in the process.

"As far as it concerns us in Syria we have national support to continue talks with Israel," Assad said. "However, there is a condition that on the Israeli side we also have those who want to continue the negotiations," he added after meeting his Croatian counterpart Stipe Mesic.

The Syrian head of state praised Turkey's efforts in the process and stressed that the presence of a "third side" would be necessary if the talks resume. "We call on European countries to also give their contribution, to help Turkey but also us to be able to resume from where we have stopped," he stressed.

5. two-state solution being pushed by J street, i guess they see the writing on the wall that it's 2 states or 1 state, 1 state being a "nightmare" for zionists due to demographics, but the "dream" lives on in israel that the palestinians can be disappeared somehow, leaving 1 state but a jews only state, and therefore J street are traitors to the zionist cause for not being sufficiently deliriously fanatical about the possibility of disappearing the palestinians. something like that.

On Sunday, October 25th, representatives of over three dozen Arab American and American Jewish community organizations met in Washington to make clear their shared commitment to a comprehensive Middle East peace. Hosted by J Street, which calls itself the US’s “pro-peace, pro-Israel lobby” and the Arab American Institute, “the research and policy arm of the Arab American community”, the event was joined by Tina Tchen, Deputy Assistant to the President and Director of the White House Office of Public Engagement.

The message that the leaders and activists who gathered hoped to send, via this summit, was that despite their different starting points, both agree on the goal of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and are supportive of President Obama’s peace making efforts, to date.

Hysteria over J Street in the jpost:

Most American-Israelis I have spoken to recognize J Street for what it really is - a radical, far left organization funded and supported by radical forces. A true wolf in sheep's clothing. Indeed, J Street's executive director, Jeremy Ben-Ami, just confirmed that truth by declaring at the J Street conference, "[w]e are here to redefine and expand the very concept of being pro-Israel." Israel's greatest enemies could not have articulated it any better.

J Street calls itself a "Washington-based Israel lobby group." However, it has not disclosed its client. Is it the State of Israel, which to date has - correctly - not identified itself with J Street? Hardly. Is it the Americans living in Israel? Ridiculous. Is it the knowledgeable American Jews who are vitally interested in the security and growth of Israel? Certainly not.
