Israel – with its government, military and security establishment – sleeps while dressed with its military attire, ever since the (Iran) nuclear negotiations were set to launch in Vienna. Its government ministries and spokesmen, along with its high-ranking military figures, have been transmitting a non-stop series of (potential) Iran war scenarios . Not a single day passes anymore without Israel issuing threats against Iran, politically and militarily, as if the war is to take place tomorrow.
Israelis know very well that Iran’s capabilities today are (totally) different than in previous years, and they (very well know) that (Iran) has alongside it a huge axis that stretches from Yemen to Iraq, Syria and Lebanon, and most importantly Palestine. Furthermore, the Israelis know very well that Iran’s military capabilities do not exist to be stored away, for they witnessed Iran in the (Persian) Gulf pursuing and warning off American and British warships, rather even landing (its troops on ships) and liberating vessels, and striking American bases in Iraq.
Similarly, such is the case for (Iran’s) allies in Yemen who have proven their capabilities in the battlefield, and who reaffirm every day their readiness to defend Palestine and its people. Likewise in Lebanon, where its resistance succeeded in liberating (Lebanese) land and in forcing the (Israeli) occupation to ‘stand on a leg and a half’ more than once. Likewise in Syria and its victories, and in Iraq with its powerful Hashed (al-Shaabi). As for Palestine, the (recent) Sword of al-Quds (Battle) speaks volumes, (not to mention) the youths of al-Quds and the (West) Bank who produce new epics every day.
‘Israel attacking Iran is like one who hits his head against the wall’, this is what the former (Israeli) Minister of Justice Daniel Friedmann thought of the (Israeli) threats (against Iran). (Friedmann argues) that Israel lacks the (necessary) readiness to be struck with one thousand missiles per day, and that it would be better for (Israel) to continue burying its head in the sand.
In addition to the (non-stop) statements and psychological warfare (tactics) against Iran, a large number of officials well aware of Israel’s military capabilities believe that it is not certain whether the (Israeli) Air Force is capable of destroying Iran’s nuclear facilities, at least not in the coming years.
The Zionist barbarians are doomed, as the Great Iranian People will no longer tolerate the Swine-Like activities of these Warmongering Scum. The American Zionist Empire is now a tottering entity, that has become a Joke amongst Nations. With friends like Russia/China/Iraq/Syria/Yemen/Lebanon/and most of the civilised nations of the Planet, Iran has now the upper-hand in the Middle East. I am an Irish Citizen and I am very much ashamed by the E/Union, and its slave like support for Scum like Israel. The M.S.Media is largely responsible for the 24/7/ Propaganda. The Media is Owned by the Rich Jews in America. and as all intelligent people know that America is now a Colony of Israel. And that is another reason that America is Doomed.
Thanks for your honest assessment. My only addition is the religious perspective I understand from Sheikh Imran Hosein, that Israel will try to be the last superpower by consuming the US and and other superpowers in a massive global war just prior to appearance of Anti-Christ. But it will fail miserably because God Almighty will no longer tolerate their corruption. God-Willing!
You forgot to mention Britain (England) is a colony of Israel and is the US puppetmaster.
Israel has been shouting for 20 years, Bombombom Iran. Reminds me of a drunk who staggers around town shouting:
“Let me at him! Don’t hold me back!”
Though no one is holding him back.
That is a great visual and very true.
The zio-scum are scared. They know they will be wiped out if they attack Iran. As for now, all they can do is fart – stinky zio-scum farts
OK, calm down, or are we now inviting 12-year olds in?
Amarynth, I have not seen this poster before.^
Maybe Saker can accept nominations for who should receive one of his “this comment is useless” flags.
Or just delete
Serious posters here place no value on the ^ above^ and it’s a waste of pixels.
Easy one. Netanyahu described the courage of the Israeli soldier as being extraordinary. If he thinks that, not far off are the champions of wrestling, boxing, etc. The threats are very sincere. I can’t imagine that they would carry them out. Maybe with Trump: they could have expected for him to stand behind them. Not with Biden. One of the unreported or misreported things was that Biden “fell asleep” while Bennett was talking to him in the White House. No, watch that video well. He did not fall asleep while Bennett was telling him how he could count on the U.S. always. “Le bajo la mirada”, as we say in Spanish. He looked down, glanced away – distancing himself from what he did not like to hear. When the unpleasant part was finished, he looked up. Very revealing. As VP of Obama, he saw a lot that maybe he did not like, like how Israel turned its back on Obama publicly during his last months in office.
is this the same biden that said you don’t have to be jewish to be a zionist? & i am a zionist. granted he may’ve simply been campaigning for money…or it may’ve been one of his more lucid & truthful moments. my opinion, left right & otherwise in america are all wings of the same london satan.
who cares what Biden thinks.
his Chief of Staff (essentially who sets the Presidents agenda), Sec of State, Sec of Treasury, Attorney General are all Jews. they have their thumb on all the scales.
Here’s the video I referred to, starting at 9:00. Why he looked down so is a matter of interpretation, but it’s clear he was not sleeping. Actually, we see that when Bennett tells him that he, Biden, has been central to the Israeli “miracle” “for so many years,” Biden looks down and stays that way for a long time. He then responds by telling him to thank Obama especially. I mentioned Obama in my comment above without remembering that Biden actually ended the meeting with this send-off (as it were) to thank Obama. I think it’s a fair interpretation that he does not appear to be as supportive as Trump showed himself to be while in office (who might have been more even-handed in a second term for the a deal’s sake).
As it stands right now, Israel could attack Iran and possibly destroy Iran’s nuclear research facilities. There is a reason they haven’t done this so far. Iran’s counter would be devastating to Israel and Iran’s ballistic missile capabilities continue to grow.
Israel is coming to its end as the dominant military power in the ME. As the balance shifts towards parity the time line for Israel to act is getting shorter by the day.
Militarily, a complete non starter.
It is the ultimate Kobayashi Maru as far as Israel is concerned.
They’ve relied on the premise that the US would take one of the many baits the Mossad have laid out over the last ~50 years.
They would be wise to take the advice of Joshua:
“A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.”
Without US assistance to remove Hezbollah from Lebanon, Israel can not afford to attack Iran. That’s where the “thousand missiles a day” will come from, not Iran. Iran will reserve most of its missiles to attack US and Saudi assets everywhere in the Middle East.
This is true about South Lebanon.
Oh how close those Saudi assets are to Iran. Saudi Arabia has no chance at an economic recovery for a long time if this were to happen.
Are there any tangible facts to tie these claims to?
Israel is seriously irritating Iran all the time, killing scientists, cyberattacks with viruses, bombing construction places etc. What is Iran doing to counter these attacks or to make them stop? Until I see anything like this, I would also count these claims as a drunkard walking around in these streets shouting.
Thats a true – misbehavior by Israel is a problem in all this.
And it isnt good PR for them when these incidents happen – it only weakens their position.
I wish all this Middle East conflict would stop and all the players – Israel, Iran, Syria, Saudis, Syria, Egypt, Iraq , Turkey etc… all sit down and hammer out a peaceful solution to all the issues.
Perhaps Putin should chair the discussions with maybe Trump and 2 non aligned leaders as vice chairs.
And sort of this out because Israel doesnt want to be on permanent decade after decade war footing nor the others.
Then they can get on with economic development etc…
Per my other comment –
The whole Middle East conflict has gone on for 74 years now and its time this ended and it will take all side to compromise on some things.
Putin and Trump are probably the only ones who can broker a deal of some type for this.
The EU people I think should be kept out of any negotiations because elements there are wanting Russia and the US to get into conflict as part of their eastward push (aka Ukraine etc..) and the Middle East is tied into it too.
