Israeli TV: Window Of Opportunity For U.S. Strike On Iran Coming

Israeli TV: Window Of Opportunity For U.S. Strike On Iran Coming

An Israeli media outlet is reporting that an American strike on Iran is in the cards, as the Administration of Barack Obama expects a “window of opportunity” for U.S. military aggression against the country to open in June.

According to an Israeli television news report, when Obama makes a scheduled visit to Israel next month he will tell Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to “sit tight” and let Washington take the stage. In the likely event that continuing U.S. sanctions against the Iranians do not halt the nation’s nuclear ambitions before summer, a U.S. military operation is expected to commence.

On Monday, Secretary of State John Kerry said that time for a diplomatic solution to the impasse was running out, since the Iranians continue to enrich uranium. Tehran claims the nation isn’t breaking any international laws because the uranium enrichment is only to make reactor fuel and medical isotopes. But some watchdogs say Iran is quickly enriching enough uranium to pose a significant nuclear threat by summer.

“As we have repeatedly made clear, the window for a diplomatic solution simply cannot remain open forever,” Kerry said in London, on his first international tour as Secretary of State. “But it is open today. It is open now and there is still time, but there is only time if Iran makes the decision to come to the table and to negotiate in good faith.

“We are prepared to negotiate in good faith, in mutual respect, in an effort to avoid whatever terrible consequences could follow failure, and so the choice really is in the hands of the Iranians. And we hope they will make the right choice,” Kerry added.

This week top diplomats from the United States, U.K., France, China, Russia and Germany — all but Germany are permanent members of the U.N. Security Council — are meeting with Iranian officials in a hotel in Almaty, Kazakhstan, to try to convince the nation to stop enriching uranium to 20 percent (the point at which it becomes weapons viable) and to export highly enriched uranium. The diplomats are also urging the Iranians to shut down the mountain-shielded Fordo uranium enrichment center, which the nation has refused to do in the past.

Iranian compliance would lead to a lessening of sanctions that have crippled the nation’s economy, according to reports. Some of the reported economic reliefs could include permission to resume Iranian gold and precious metals trading and international banking activity. But not much is expected to come from the latest round of talks with an Iranian Presidential election slated for June, making top officials in the country hesitant to make any deals with Western powers that could be perceived as a result of weakness.

    Since 90% of you have attacked Obama for not supporting Israel why would he be looking for a “window of opportunity” which would give Israel the leverage they have always wanted. Those past rumors must then be false if he is caving in to Israels demands. I don’t believe Iran should be attacked and certainly not because Israel wants us to. With so little proof of Iran enriching uranium for nukes or for exporting we need to stand down and keep up the diplomatic pressure.

      IF what you say is true,,,,,,,then why have diplomatic pressure?

    When will we stop pretending Israel is our friend? This nonsense with the “Rapture” is the only thing that keeps the cord between the United States and Israel tied together. Ask the people of muslim decent in Israel how that “democracy” is working for them. They are just another country. No better and No worse than any other. I am tired of this country having to bow to Israel. Out of Iran, Iraq and Israel, Israel is the only country that has attacked this country without provokation.

    Its about time we have an adult relationship with Israel and stop trying to see who the “better friend” to Israel. Israel is out for Israel.

    The US has no moral, legal, or political right or reason to attack a sovereign country such as Iran. Just because the international community is afraid to try to stop such an act of inhumanity does not mean it is justified.
    In my opinion, it is a veiled attempt to get control of their filthy fossil fuels by which we could manipulate the price and availabiltiy better.

    HOW IT ALL BEGAN…

    Since the time of the Crusades, the Vatican had entrusted the CUSTODY of the HOLY LAND to the Franciscan Order in Jerusalem. Their function, essentially, consisted of helping the local Catholic population, as well as of watching over the properties the Church considered hers.

    Now of course, let us not forget HOW those properties came about to belong to the Church in the first place: after the SACKING OF JERUSALEM BY ROME, which happened by PURE FORCE , BRUTALITY, AND UNSPEAKABLE HORRORS inflicted on the JEWISH POPULATION OF ISRAEL, the likes of which history has scant comparison for, AND AFTER ROBBING THE JEWISH PEOPLE OF ALL ITS POSSESSIONS, – the depiction of which is found to this day on the ARCH OF TITUS IN ROME, – and following the subsequent desolation of Judea, Samaria and all of the Land of Israel, various rulers assumed ownership of the Land, and felt free to trade in it as though it belonged to them, which of course it did not. STOLEN PROPERTY CANNOT BE TRADED AT WILL. TITLE TO STOLEN PROPERTY SOLD BY A THIEF IS INVALID AND ILLEGAL NO MATTER HOW YOU LOOK AT IT.

    For example, take Madoff’s investors: even though they unwittingly, innocently and unknowingly came to possess stolen goods, they nevertheless have to return the loot. So much cannot be stated of the Catholic Church, which knew perfectly well that the goods and real estate in Jerusalem , Judea, the Galilee, etc, were STOLEN PROPERTY, yet still claimed, and claims, ownership for it all even after 2000 years . ESAV [Esau] WILL NOT WILLINGLY RETURN THE BLESSING OF ERETZ YISRAEL [Land of Israel] TO JACOB. REMEMBER, ROME IS ESAV – and I would venture to add, ROME HAS PROVEN BY ITS BEHAVIOR THAT IT IS AMALEK AS WELL.

    In addition, let us not forget the brutality and massacres inflicted by the Crusaders on the local Jewish population.

    Still, to simplify things , let’s say that the Franciscans were responsible for watching over the properties claimed by the Church as its own in the Holy Land, Eretz Yisrael.

    Now AFTER THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE OF ISRAEL IN 1948, the Church started worrying about its possessions. Specially since 1967 and the RETURN OF AM ISRAEL TO ITS SACRED INHERITANCE, in particular to HAR HABAYIT [Temple Mount] AND ALL OF JERUSALEM, the Vatican became more and more concerned: not only was JEWISH SOVEREIGNTY over Jerusalem A SLAP IN THE FACE OF CATHOLICISM, the Vatican was also worried about ownership and political sovereignty, with just reason; so it devised a very detailed, sly and elaborate plan to recoup its sovereignty over Jerusalem and the rest of Israel. Not only that, but it decided that JERUSALEM HAD TO BE INTERNATIONALIZED.

    In addition to that, the ancient dreams of revival of the Holy Roman Empire Of Charlemagne with its seat in Jerusalem never died, as a matter of fact, are alive as ever in this pope’s mind. TO SUPPLANT JUDAISM AND MAKE THE POPE THE SUPREME RELIGIOUS AND TEMPORAL POWER OF THE RENEWED HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE IS THE GOAL. For this, I will refer you to the end of this essay, which has a lot of links, quotes, and information. Be ready for some long and good reading!

    How did Rome go about doing this?

    This is where deception comes in big time: http://jewjewsjewish.blogspot.ca/2009/03/vaticans-plot-against-jerusalem.html

    “to try to convince the nation to stop enriching uranium to 20 percent (the point at which it becomes weapons viable)”

    That is incorrect. 20% is a low-enrichment of uranium typically used in research reactors such as what they are saying it is for. Weapons grade is upwards of 85% enrichment. They are nowhere close. Additionally, the Non-Proliferation Treaty allows them to enrich uranium up to that 20% level, as Iran has pointed out that it is not breaking any international laws.

    Why then are these sanctions or even efforts to stop them or halt their program acceptable? They are NOT! American efforts to interfere in their programs which are consistent with international law is the violation of that law itself. And why does America do this? Typically, because we heed to the Christian and Zionist zealot fear mongering which has no basis in fact or reason.

    Meanwhile, we let Israel conduct humanitarian crimes daily against the Palestinians, and even violate international law by bombing targets in southern Syria, because they MIGHT be supplying Hezbollah who was a product of (created in response to) the Israeli INVASION of Lebanon in 1982.

    Personally, Obama’s lack of unconditional support for Israel is one of the few things I think he has done right, and having been watching closely, I would question the accuracy of Israel’s report, although that still doesn’t take away from the fact that Obama did place sanctions on Iran for actually operating within international law.

    American foreign policy is so grotesquely hypocritical and vain it’s amazing that good people let this continue. Sickening.

    I just don’t get the concept that some countries on this earth can dictate which countries
    can and which countries can’t have nuclear weapons. That does not seem “democratic”
    to me. I do understand that if Iran got the bomb, we certainly have the intelligence capab-
    ility to detect evidence of preparing to attack and we could destroy them with sea
    launched and air launched nuclear missiles long before they get their hot little hands on
    the red button.
