Iran not to compromise on its nuclear

Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said on Saturday Tehran is ready for talks with world powers but there will not be any compromise on its nuclear right, Iran's English-language satellite channel Press TV reported.
    "Iran is seriously willing to enter talks with the world powers on the basis of the items mentioned in the latest package," Mottaki told a press conference with his visiting Turkish counterpart Ahmet Davutoglu.
    But "we cannot make any compromise in terms of the Iranian nation's inalienable right," the Iranian foreign minister added.
    Mottaki slammed the three rounds of UN sanctions against Iran as "a failed policy" which he said cannot stop Tehran from pursuing its legitimate rights.
    To initiate talks with the six major powers that are dealing with Iran's nuclear issue, Iran on Wednesday handed over its new package of proposals on global issues.
    However, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs on Thursday criticized Iran's proposal for its failure to live up to its international obligations, saying that "Iran obviously has two paths that they can choose: one of those paths leads to increased international isolation if they don't take concrete steps to end their program."
    Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Friday that Iran must remain firm on its nuclear rights.
    "We must remain firm on our rights," Khamenei told Friday prayer worshippers in a sermon broadcast live on state television, "if we give up our rights, whether nuclear rights or other (rights), it will lead to the decline (of the Islamic regime)."
    The United States and other Western countries claimed that Iran intended to secretly develop nuclear weapons. The UN Security Council also required Iran to suspend its uranium enrichment activity.
    Iran, however, insisted that its nuclear plan is only for peaceful purposes, vowing to continue its uranium enrichment activity despite pressure and sanctions from Western countries.

Iran submits package of proposals to major powers to initiate talks
    TEHRAN, Sept. 9 (Xinhua) -- To initiate talks with six major powers on global issues, Iran handed over its new package of proposals on Wednesday.
    Representatives of six major powers, namely France, Britain, Russia, China, the United States and Germany, involved in talks over Iran's nuclear issue received the packages, a Xinhua photographer said. Full story
IAEA board urges Iran to clarify nuclear program nature 

    VIENNA, Sept. 11 (Xinhua) -- The International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA) 35-member board has expressed hope that Iran can actively engage in dialogue to clarify the nature of its controversial nuclear program.
    Continuous uranium enrichment has moved Iran closer to a dangerous situation, the chief U.S. envoy to the IAEA Glyn Davies said at the five-day board meeting, which ended on Thursday, one day ahead of schedule. Full story
U.S. calls for high-level multilateral meeting with Iran over nuclear issues
    WASHINGTON, Sept. 11 (Xinhua) -- The United States on Friday proposed to hold multilateral talks with Iran to find out if the Islamic Republic is really willing to address nuclear and other concerns.
    "If you go to the Iran document, it says the Iranian nation is prepared to enter into dialogue and negotiation and so on and so forth," Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs Philip Crowley told reporters

           Putin warns against attack on Iran

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has warned against military action targeting Iran or imposing new sanctions to curb its nuclear program.
Iran's latest proposals on its nuclear ambitions have brought diverging views from the US and Russia.
Iran has offered to hold "comprehensive, all-encompassing and constructive" negotiations on a range of security issues, including global nuclear disarmament.
While Russia's foreign minister has described them as a positive step forward, Washington is unhappy with the proposals.
Both US and Israel have never ruled out the option of air strikes on Iran to stop it acquiring an atomic weapon.
Speaking in Moscow, Mr Putin said strikes on Iran would lead to an increase in terrorism in the region.
"This would be very dangerous, unacceptable. This would lead to an explosion of terrorism, increase the influence of extremists," he said when asked about the possibility of an attack.
"I doubt very much that such strikes would achieve their stated goal."
He also called on Iran to take into account Israel's concerns and show restraint in its nuclear program.
"The Iranians should show restraint in their nuclear program. We have told Iran that it has the right to a civilian nuclear program but that it should understand what region of the world it is in," Mr Putin said.
"This is a dangerous region and Iran should show responsibility, especially by taking into account Israel's concerns, all the more so after the absolutely unacceptable statements about the destruction of the state of Israel."

Vow to stand firm

Iran has stood firm, with Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei insisting his country must defend its right to nuclear power.
"We must stand firm for our rights. If we give up our rights, whether nuclear or other rights, this will lead to decline," said the Ayatollah, who has the final say in all national issues.
"We will walk the path of decline if instead of using freedom for scientific and ethical progress, we use it to spread sin, instead of standing against arrogance, aggressors and international looters, we feel weak in front of them and retreat and instead of frowning at them we smile at them."
The Supreme Leader's remarks came two days after Iran delivered a new package of proposals to six world powers - Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States - to help resolve the stalemate over its atomic drive.
A spokeswoman for European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana said the six countries are to seek an urgent meeting with Iran.
The meeting could take the form of talks between Iran's top nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili and Mr Solana, who regularly represents the six powers.
The world powers have given Iran a late September deadline to begin negotiations or face more sanctions.
Iran is already under three sets of UN sanctions.
Washington has also expressed disappointment over Iran's package.
"It is not really responsive to our greatest concern, which is obviously Iran's nuclear program," Philip Crowley, assistant secretary of state for public affairs, told reporters.

Deployment site for US missile shield

The United States may pick Israel over Eastern Europe as the deployment location for the partial installation of its controversial global missile defense shield.

The likelihood was raised in an article in the major Israeli daily,The Jerusalem Post Monday citing concordant comments by ranking Israeli officials.

The American plans for the shield, devised under former president George W. Bush, use potential missile threats 'from Iran and North Korea' as a pretext for positioning interceptor missiles in Poland and a tracking radar in the Czech Republic.

Russia denounces the move as more of a security threat than a precaution refuting the anti-Iranian argument. It has also threatened to respond by installing the potent Iskander-M missile systems in Kaliningrad, an exclave near Poland.

The daily said Washington was likely to install the components in Israel to allay Moscow's concerns.

It also quoted a 'senior Israeli defense official' as saying that the likelihood was "being discussed in unofficial channels" for the US to equip Israel with the Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) and the Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense System.

The US military is slated to ship the highly-dependable defensive gear to Israel for the October joint exercises with the Israeli Air Force (IAF).

Though rating the possibility as 'strong', the officials noted that "the United States has not made an official request to deploy the systems here."

The US has already installed a powerful missile defense radar in the southern Israeli Negev desert to 'enhance and extend' Tel Aviv's missile deterrence capabilities.

Meanwhile, Washington has stated that it was rethinking the Eastern European deployment.

The US and Russian heads of state are set to canvass the issue later in the month during the annual opening of the United Nation's General Assembly.

Late last month, The New York Times quoted the US administration officials as saying that President Barack Obama would consult with his Russian counterpart Dmitry Medvedev about alternative deployment areas at the UN meeting. 

Pak Navy receives first F-22 frigate ( PNS Zulfiquar )

The first F-22 frigate of the Pakistan Navy PNS Zulfiquar, built in China, arrived in south Pakistan's Karachi amid the ongoing Naval exercise, the official APP news agency reported Saturday.
    PNS Zulfiquar is the first of the series of four ships being constructed in collaboration with China at Hudong Zhonghua shipyard in Shanghai, east China, and was formally handed over to Pakistan on July 30.
    The ship was welcomed by the navy surface and aviation units conducting exercise. PNS Zulfiquar also participated in its very first naval exercise which was witnessed by commander Pakistan Fleet Rear Admiral Asif Sandila, said a press release of Naval Public Relations Directorate.
    Pakistan entered into agreement with China for at least four frigates, of them, three would be constructed in China and one would be readied in Pakistan.
    The second and third ship are also nearing completion and expected to be handed over to Pakistan in the first and third quarter of 2010. The fourth ship is under construction at Karachi shipyard and would be completed by 2013.
    F-22 frigate is a Sword Class Ship equipped with long range surface-to-surface and surface-to-air missiles, depth charges, torpedoes, latest 76mm guns, close-in-weapons system (CIWS), sensors, electronic warfare and advanced command and control system.
    The ship has a displacement of 3,000 tons and carries anti-submarine Z9EC helicopters. The first batch of two helicopters has already arrived in Pakistan.
    Formal induction ceremony of the ship in Pakistan navy fleet will be held in the third week of this month.
(  The F-22P is an improved version of the Chinese Type 053H3 frigate currently on order by the Pakistan Navy (PN)..The F-22P Class frigate is armed with 8 C-802 surface-to-surface and 8 HHQ-7 (improved ) surface-to-air missiles. However the F-22P uses the Russian AK-176M 76.2mm as its main gun, instead of the Chinese 100mm counterpart. Physically, the F-22P has a stealthier platform as it uses a lot of the Type 054 frigate’s Radar Cross Sectional (RCS) reduction concepts.The  harbin z9 helicopter can be armed with the CY sereis ane warfare anti submarine  missiles, the C-701 and the TL-10light antiship missiles, four of which can be carried by the Harbin )

Osama bin Laden dead or fled

PAKISTAN'S intelligence and security establishment thinks Osama bin Laden is dead or has fled heavily bombarded tribal areas and gone elsewhere in the Islamic world, probably Yemen.
"If he is still alive - and I emphasise if - he is definitely not in Pakistan," Interior Minister Rehman Malik tells The Weekend Australian in an interview in Islamabad.
"He could be in a neighbouring country, and he could even have used a boat to go elsewhere ... possibly getting aboard a fishing boat on the remote Makran coast of Baluchistan and going to another country."
Both President Asif Ali Zardari and Dr Malik have a political imperative in insisting the al-Qa'ida leader is not in Pakistan, but senior members of the country's intelligence agencies who have previously been upfront in admitting he was probably in Pakistan now say they have doubts he is alive or in the region.
One senior security analyst said: "The reality is that our FATA tribal region - including Waziristan, where Osama has often been touted to be - has simply become too hot for him.
"The killing two months ago of (Pakistan Taliban leader) Baitullah Mehsud in a US drone attack, and the killing of a string of other highly placed militant leaders, including Osama's third son, shows just how unsafe FATA has become for them.
"Combine that with the all-out offensives and bombardments being waged everywhere - including Waziristan - by our security forces, and it becomes clear that even Osama could no longer count on the protection he enjoyed previously."
Speculation in the intelligence community is that if bin Laden has moved, it might be to Yemen, where he has spent time and al-Qa'ida has a powerful base.
There is also speculation about Iran; Pakistani intelligence claims members of bin Laden's family - he has several wives and at least 23 children - may be based there. Earlier this year it was reported bin Laden's third-eldest son, Saad, an al-Qa'ida operative, had been killed in a drone attack in Pakistan after leaving his base in Iran.
Al-Qa'ida has been operating in Iran with the help of the extremist Quds Force.
Nothing has been heard from bin Laden since June, when a statement attributed to him was aired on al-Jazeera in what was seen as a move to pre-empt a major address to the Muslim world by US President Barack Obama. The video carried an old picture of him.
Asked about bin Laden's deputy, Ayman al-Zawahiri, Dr Malik said that immediately after Pakistan's new democratic government took office last year, "there were some indications he was in Afghanistan". Other intelligence sources said Pakistani intelligence had tracked him in the tribal territory of Mohmand, close to the Afghan border, but that recently, as with bin Laden, "the trail has gone dead".
Many in the Western intelligence community distrust whatever emerges from Pakistan about where bin Laden and Zawahiri may be, pointing to longstanding double-dealing by the country's intelligence and other agencies.

Taliban insurgency: Boston housepainter Taliban spokesman Muslim Khan captur

The Pakistani army said it dealt a new blow to the Taliban insurgency, capturing a top commander who once worked in Boston as a housepainter.
The white-bearded militant, Muslim Khan, had helped spearhead the group's two-year uprising in the Swat Valley in northwest Pakistan. With his choppy English, Mr. Khan also served as the Swat Taliban's chief spokesman for local and foreign journalists. He was arrested earlier this week with four other commanders in their Swat hideout, according to Maj. Gen. Athar Abbas, Pakistan's military spokesman.
Gen. Abbas described the arrests as "a major breakthrough for the security forces." Mr. Khan was considered to be one of the top three Taliban leaders in Swat.
The arrests are unlikely to significantly alter the course of the fighting. Pakistan's army, despite a major offensive to rout the Swat Taliban, has failed to capture their leader, Mullah Fazalullah. The army has showed few signs of preparing for a full-scale ground offensive to uproot the militancy village by village in South Waziristan. Pakistani forces have instead relied on air strikes and artillery barrages on Taliban positions in South Waziristan.
Even in areas where the Taliban is on the run, such as Swat, security remains unsettled.
There have been a number of Taliban attacks in recent weeks, including an Aug. 30 suicide bombing that killed 15 police recruits in Mingora, the valley's main town.
Still, the U.S. and Pakistan have registered some notable successes in recent weeks. Pakistan Taliban have struggled to reorganize following the death of their chief commander, Baitullah Mehsud, after a U.S. missile strike last month in the South Waziristan tribal region. U.S. officials say they believe the area is a center of operations for the al Qaeda terrorist group. Mr. Mehsud's death triggered an internal battle for leadership, and Hakimullah Mehsud, another senior commander, was later named to succeed him.
Gen. Abbas declined to disclose the date or other details related to Mr. Khan's capture. The announcement coincided with the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks in the U.S., and could be seen as a response to criticism from Washington over the past eight years that Pakistan hasn't done enough to destroy potential sanctuaries for terrorists.
Islamabad has often rebutted such charges by pointing to the number of Pakistani soldiers who have died fighting insurgents: about 1800 in the past eight years, according to the military. About 300 soldiers have been killed in the three-month-old Swat offensive.
On Friday, the Pakistani government released photos of two captured commanders, Mr. Khan and Mahmood Khan, stripped of their turbans, as part of efforts to publicize the army's most recent success. The military says it has killed more than 2,000 insurgents in recent operations against the Taliban.
The government had offered a reward of $120,000 for the capture of Mr. Khan. The other men captured this week were lower on the hierarchy.
Mr. Khan, who is in his 50s, spent the late 1990s in the U.S., where he lived in Boston and painted houses for a living. He had worked in the early 1980s as a student activist for the Pakistan Peoples Party, which now rules the country, and later briefly joined one of the country's Islamist religious parties.
By the time he reached Boston, his views on the West were uncompromising. In an interview this spring with The Wall Street Journal, he recalled telling a friend who was attending a college in New York at the time to abandon his studies because he would learn nothing. He said the U.S. education system did nothing but spread obscenity and immorality.
In the interview, Mr. Khan called the U.S. "the source of all the trouble for Muslims."
He said he had a list of Pakistanis in Swat whom the Taliban planned to execute, including a woman who he said would be killed because her husband worked for the American army. It couldn't be determined if the executions were carried out.
Speaking with British Channel 4 News in April, he complained about the presence of white Western women among forces for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. "As long as these infidels are present in our land, it is our duty to fight them," he said.
In recent months he called Pakistani journalists to warn them their reporting was biased against the Taliban, and they would punished.
After Mr. Khan returned to Pakistan in 2002, he claimed responsibility for several Taliban terrorist attacks. The militants eventually moved into the alpine getaway of Swat, and began enforcing a harsh interpretation of Islamic law.
Once a peaceful and relatively liberal region dotted with ski resorts and fruit orchards, the Swat Valley became a magnet for pro-al Qaeda militants. A large number of foreign fighters, including Uzbeks, Chechens and Arabs, joined the militancy there, increasing the threat to Pakistan's security.
Many in the U.S. government and the Pakistan government came to view the situation in the Swat Valley as a test case of Pakistan's resolve. The Pakistani government initially struck a peace deal with the militants, but the Taliban soon began moving out of the valley and claiming new territory in the direction of Islamabad, the capital,
Mr. Khan, who had attended college in Swat, said at the time that the Taliban's first responsibility was to establish Islamic law, or Shariah, in the Swat Valley to set an example.
After that, he said, "It is our responsibility to go and establish Shariah anywhere in the country."

Israel plans to attack Iran

Russian media on Thursday continued to cover Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's mysterious visit to Moscow, that was leaked to the media from his office.
Kommersant newspaper quoted "experts" as saying they believe a visit of this kind could have stemmed from urgent circumstances, "for example, in the event that Israel plans to attack Iran".
At first, Moscow denied a visit ever took place, but after Netanyahu's office was forced to admit to the PM's Military Secretary Meir Kalifi's lie, a senior Kremlin source also confirmed to Kommersant that the Israeli prime minister did indeed visit the city.
Russian media also directed questions on the visit to the Israeli embassy in Moscow, but embassy sources said that if there was such a visit, "We know nothing about it."
The paper then quoted what it called an "informed" Israeli source, who wished to remain anonymous, as saying, "Such a visit could be related to new information and could threaten the Iranian nuclear program. It should not be ruled out that Israel may be ready to move on to decisive actions with regards to Iran, and Netanyahu has decided to inform the Kremlin of this."
Russian Foreign Minister Spokesman Andrei Nesterenko published an announcement saying, "We have no knowledge of a Netanyahu's 'secret' visit to Moscow. We saw reports in various media. They are inconsistent. Other than that, I cannot tell you anything. I have no detailed information in the matter, or any information in the matter. We have seen the reports."
On Wednesday, Ynet revealed that Netanyahu left Israel on a private jet belonging Israeli millionaire Yossi Maiman. Earlier Wednesday, Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper reported that his destination was Russia.

The prime minister's aides who published the false announcements of his whereabouts were a loss for words.
Wednesday night the Prime Minister's Office published yet another announcement in an attempt to rectify the damage, said, "The prime minister was busy with secret, classified activity. The military secretary took his own initiative to defend this activity."

September 11 and Beyond

The attacks on September 11, 2001 have been a defining moment for America. The political and psychological impact on Americans of a concerted and visible attack in America was enormous -- indeed, it is an interesting "coincidence" that the attacks occurred on the one day of the year whose mention reinforces a public sense here of danger and emergency: 9-1-1.
A significant development in the 1990s was the formation of the neo-conservative think tank known as PNAC (Project for a New American Century), whose members prepared position papers for the Israeli government and for a future US Administration sharing their views. That happened in 2000 with the election of George W. Bush, and a contemporary writer summarized the tip of the neo-conservative iceberg in his first Administration this way:

The "outsiders" from PNAC were now powerful "insiders," placed in important positions from which they could exert maximum pressure on US policy…PNAC had a lock on military policy-creation in the Bush Administration.

Especially significant in terms of subsequent events was the acknowledgement in one of PNAC's own documents that their program for America (and Israel) would not readily be accepted by the American people. What this meant, PNAC opined in 2000, was that "the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event -- like a new Pearl Harbor."

9/11 Reconsidered

On September 11, 2001, the PNAC people in and out of government -- and by extension AIPAC and Israel -- "coincidentally" got the event they needed, barely eight months after coming into office. Most people are familiar with the basic details of that day -- two commercial aircraft crashing into the two tallest buildings in New York City's World Trade Center (WTC), a third striking the Pentagon, and a fourth ending up in a Pennsylvania field. Few people will forget the images of the burning buildings, their collapse, the casualties, and the sense of shock and tragedy that ensued.

The official 9/11 Commission's work and report were at best an incomplete exercise. Many people dismiss the findings of the Commission, and that includes its co-chairs. Many others who utterly distrust the 9/11 Commission report, dismiss the US Government’s explanation of it, and point to both an official cover-up and an “inside job,” include veteran fighter pilots, EMTs (Emergency Medical Technicians), air defense experts, experienced commercial pilots, demolition experts, architects and civil engineers – none of them professions that inherently attract and retain the gullible and credulous.

Several things are very clear to me from a careful assessment of both official and critical evaluations of the 9/11 attacks. First, the striking aircraft alone simply could not have brought down either of the two buildings in the manner in which they fell, much less a third building which was not hit by a plane (I expect the one intended to do that as a "cover" had ended up in that Pennsylvania field), given the available physical evidence and a wealth of expert testimony. This means the attackers had assistance on the ground, and it had to have been active before the attacks occurred: preparing buildings for controlled demolition is not something done haphazardly in the midst of chaos.

Second, only two intelligence agencies had the expertise, assets, access and political protection to execute 9/11 in the air and on the ground: our CIA and Israel's Mossad. Only one had the incentive, using the “who benefits” principle: Mossad. And that incentive dovetailed perfectly with the neo-con’s agenda and explicitly expressed need for a catalytic event to mobilize the American public for their wars, using American military power to destroy Israel’s enemies. Only the unexpected strength of the Iraqi resistance kept Syria and Iran from being attacked in the second Bush Administration. Thus, the evidential trail for 9/11 and the wars in Afghanistan & Iraq run from PNAC, AIPAC and their cohorts; through the mostly Jewish neo-cons in the Bush Administration; and back to the Israeli government. None of the denials and political machinations can alter that essential reality. Terms such as treason, betrayal and deceit do not overstate the case against them.

Finally, we need to take a hard look at why the mainstream media (MSM) have paid more attention to Sarah Palin’s wardrobe than they have to dissecting blatant falsehoods, discrepancies and inconsistencies in the US Government’s treatment of 9/11 and its aftermath. And the reason is that on this issue, all are on the same side, and the official line is the one they all prefer – “all” meaning the PNAC alumni who took over the Bush Administration’s national security apparatus and their counterparts in the Obama administration, AIPAC and the rest of the numerous Jewish PACs, the MSM owners and Israel. The depiction of the media management in America in 2002 is especially informative, and has not changed significantly since then:

CEOs and Directors of companies change as often as Boards of Directors vote. But if we could “freeze frame” the CEOs of the largest US Media companies in mid 2002, we would find that ten Jewish American men ran the vast majority of US television networks and other media companies including movies, radio, and publishing at that time. Not much has changed today.

Looking Ahead

Today we are getting the same line on Iran, from the same type of people -- Obama himself tries to be more independent, but most of the key staff and national security people in his Administration do not differ greatly on Israel and the Middle East from those of his predecessor. And the Congress has shown itself to be even more of AIPAC's lap-dog than the preceding Congress, an exercise in self-serving cowardice that admittedly has taken some doing.

But AIPAC and company are riding a tiger in America, and if they ever slip, the resulting convulsion will be catastrophic for them and for Israel. The open unfolding of the 9/11 tragedy and its ensuing wars that is now occurring can be that slip. The human cost to America to date is some 60,000 people, military and civilian, killed or wounded on 9/11 and in Iraq and Afghanistan together, with more to come once we go to war with Iran (or get dragged into it following an Israeli attack on Iran). Much of the deliberately misdirected rage that followed 9/11 has given way to endurance and grief.

But grief is a close cousin to rage, and an enraged America is not pretty, as anyone familiar with our history can appreciate. Americans are often deceptive without meaning to be. To much of the world, they often come across as naive, bumbling innocents in the world of global politics. And on a day-to-day basis, there is much truth to that.

But an enraged America is a very different character. You have only to look at what happened in WWII to German and Japanese cities, towns and villages, where America slaughtered literally millions of German and Japanese civilians -- most of them women and children -- knew it was doing it, and cared nothing at all. The goal was to crush, and restraint was not a word used much at all.

If these Americans and those like them ever fully understand just how much of their suffering -- and the suffering we have inflicted on others -- is properly laid on the doorsteps of Israel and its advocates in America, they will sweep aside those in politics, the press and the pulpits alike whose lies and disloyalty brought this about and concealed it from them. They may well leave Israel looking like Carthage after the Romans finished with it. It will be Israel’s own great fault.

Ex-Mossad chief insists on striking Iran's nuclear facilities

A former chief of Israeli intelligence, Mossad, insists on striking Iran's nuclear facilities as the only way of resolving western concerns over its nuclear program.

Speaking to the Army Radio Wednesday night, Danny Yatom, the former director of the notorious intelligence service, said Tel Aviv should attack Iranian nuclear facilities to prevent Iran from "acquiring nuclear weapons."

"Yes, I have," the 64 year old answered when asked if he had come to the conclusion that a military strike would be the only way to deal with the Islamic Republic.

Such radical comments, typical of Israeli officials, come amid repeated assertions by major nuclear powers that the Iranian nuclear issue must be resolved through diplomacy.

Israel, the sole possessor of a nuclear arsenal in the Middle East, accuses Tehran of making efforts to build a nuclear bomb and threatens Iran with a military strike should the country continue uranium enrichment.

Yatom, who from 2003 to 2008 served as a member of the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, added that he does not believe that the United States would approve of such a move.

"I do not see the world today, led by the United States, ready to take the risk of attacking Tehran's nuclear facilities," he said adding that "Israel can not sit back and watch Tehran become nuclear power."

As one of four nuclear-armed countries not recognized as a Nuclear Weapons State by the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), Tel Aviv has maintained the policy of neither admitting nor denying its possession of nuclear warheads. However, it is widely believed that Israel has some 200 nuclear warheads in its arsenal.

The doctrine of nuclear ambiguity has enabled Israel to deter foes for decades in a region with only one alleged nuclear power.

The Israeli nuclear program is also part of a deterrence military doctrine that assumes Tel Aviv must maintain an absolute military superiority in the region.

In order to maintain its military advantage, Tel Aviv insists on preventing other Muslim countries, especially in the Middle East, from acquiring nuclear capabilities while remaining outside of the international nuclear non-proliferation system.

According to the same logic, it launched a “preemptive” air strike on the Iraqi breeder reactor in Osirak in June 1981, when the late dictator Saddam Hussein was in power.

During the operation, known as "Operation Opera," a squadron of Israeli Air Force F-16A fighter aircrafts, with an escort of F-15As, bombed and heavily damaged the Osirak reactor.

Israeli intelligence at the time believed that the summer of 1981 would be the last chance to destroy the reactor before it would be loaded with nuclear fuel.

In September 2007, Israel launched yet another attack against an alleged nuclear facility in Syria. The facility in the eastern Deir ez-Zor region was targeted by at least four fighters which crossed into Syrian airspace just after midnight (local time).

9/11 World Trade Center Collapse: Kerosene Fire, Controlled Demolition or a Third Story

I’ll get right to the point, I have read the books and watched the documentaries on September 11 for three years and the 9/11 official story is so stupid Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld didn’t expect you to believe it.
Nineteen fanatical Arab hijackers, masterminded by an evil genius named Osama bin Laden, crash airplanes into steel skyscrapers because they “hate our freedom to consume” and inexplicably on 9/11 jet fuel, which is basically kerosene that burns at about 400c, took on the qualities of an explosive demolition agent, vaporizing 70 tons of aircraft into a puff of smoke and causing 110-story buildings to collapse into a pile of rubble. [1]
Jet fuel fire: Improbable, to say the least.
Millions believe a LIHOP (Let it Happen on Purpose) version of the story, but that is because their brain tells them their government killed 3,000 American citizens to pass the Patriot Act, build up the military and invade Afghanistan and Iraq (Kill3000toPassBuild&Invade).
There are three reasons why most Americans are in denial and cling to the official story:
1.         I am a Patriot, the US is a great country they wouldn’t Kill3000toPassBuild&Invade.
2.         I like my life and I’m having a good time, so don’t bother me with the Kill3000toPassBuild&Invade nonsense.
3.         I can’t do anything about it anyway, so why should I listen to the Kill3000toPassBuild&Invade story.
Everyone else, after you point out the obvious (110 Stories of steel and concrete collapsing at free fall speed), thinks about it for a New York minute and realizes the official story couldn’t be true.
And when they find out the military was conducting Operation Vigilant Guardian, an exercise on 9/11 simulating hijacked planes crashing into skyscrapers in the NE sector of the United States, they come to the false conclusion Kill3000toPassBuild&Invade and accept the 9/11 Truth story: A rogue element of the US government used controlled demolition to demolish the twin towers. [2]
Let me be clear, I agree the US government or some proxy did exploit the events of 9/11 to:
·             Demolish Building 7 that wasn’t even hit by a plane, home of the SEC investigation files and Rudy Giuliani’s command center.
·             Fire a cruise missile into the newly renovated wing of the Pentagon, killing 189 people, including the five “alleged” hijackers and 34 civilian accountants, bookkeepers and budget analysts working for the Resource Services department. And, in another one of those coincidences that don’t happen very often, the accountants and bookkeepers were investigating, according to Donald Rumsfeld, 2.3 trillion Dollars that “just vanished”. [3]
·             Shoot down flight 77 over Pennsylvania and kill the passengers from flight 93 and a second mysterious airplane that made an emergency landing at Cleveland Hopkins Airport. [4]
·             Remove the rubble from the Twin Towers with GPS tracked debris trucks before anyone could perform a forensic analysis. [5]
The “Experts” on 9/11
Professor Steven “Cold Fusion” Jones lectures ad nauseam about the obvious, that 110 stories of steel and concrete do not collapse into a pile of rubble from a kerosene fire. Jones’ research, allegedly peer reviewed, has not proven the buildings collapsed from controlled demolition.
Dr. Judy Wood, former professor of mechanical engineering, with expertise in material science concludes the buildings were destroyed using some type of “field effect technology” related to the Hutchison Effect and the presence of Hurricane Erin. [6]
Jones, sweet and innocent, looks like he belongs in the Bush administration not in the counter culture community.
Wood, marginalized and tossed out of the 9/11-truth movement happens to look like a hippie.
Dr. Wood raises important questions about the so-called collapse and the dip of the Earth’s magnetic field at the precise moment of the supposed first plane “impact” [7] but the 9/11 Truthers refuse to acknowledge her research and her work has been intentionally left out in their search for the Truth.
David Ray Griffin, retired professor at the Claremont School of Theology and spokesman for the 9/11 Truth Movement, has written numerous books questioning the 9/11 official story. Inexplicably he and co-founder, John B. Cobb, Jr., of the Center for Process Studies hang around with David Rockefeller.  Griffin’s major project at present is in fact, “to develop a theology for a New World Order.” [8]
Dr. Griffin, like Jones, lectures frequently at universities and public places explaining in repetitive detail that September 11 was not the result of 19 Arab terrorists and a kerosene fire.
However, neither of them will discuss anything that contradicts the controlled demolition theory of the twin towers.
The government would not allow the openly treasonous behavior of David Ray and Steven Earl unless that was part of a plan to keep us from looking for a third story.
The Third Story and the New World Order
TPTB, all members of the occult, are in a struggle to take over the Earth.
The rules of the game require they publicize symbols and broadcast clues that the profane (the common man) won’t be able to or will be too busy trashing the planet to take the time to understand.
1776 wasn’t just the birth of our nation, the Latin words on the Great Seal of the United States of America, ‘Annuit Coeptis’ means ‘The Birth Of’ and ‘Novus Ordo Seclorum’ the ‘New World Order’.
The religion of the occult and mysticism is descended from ancient Egypt and Babylon and existed at the time the United States of America was founded.
The pyramid on the $1 bill is the Pagan temple of Satan worship.
The capstone on the $1 bill has not come down on the pyramid because the plan for a New World Order was not complete in 1776.
1776, 1789, 1947, September 11 and October 2008 were milestones on the road to a One World Government and New World Order. [9]
The Great Seal was designed by the Freemasons, also members of the Illuminati and TPTB.
Careful analysis of the seal discloses numerous occult and Masonic symbols, chief among them the so-called American Eagle: [10]
* 13 leaves in the olive branch
* 13 bars and stripes in the shield
* 13 arrows in the right claw
* 13 letters in the “E Pluribus Unum” on the ribbon
* 13 stars in the green crest above
* 32 long feathers on its right wing representing the 32º in Freemasonry
* 13 granite stones in the Pyramid. (The 13 layers represent the 13 Illuminati bloodlines)
* 13 letters in Annuit Coeptis
“13″ to the occultist means the ultimate in rebellion.
TPTB greet each other and often announce their plans publically. President Clinton and the entire Bush family are often seen making the “horned salute” gesture. [11]
An excerpt from the 1993 Clinton inaugural speech:
“This ceremony is held in the depths of winter but, by the words we speak and the faces we show the world, we force the spring.’ Force the Spring is a very unusual expression. To ‘force the spring’ is witchcraft language. In witchcraft and Satanism Lucifer (Baal) rises from the underworld on May 1st (also known by the following list of names Beltane…and Walpurgis).” [12]
More clues from September 11, 2001
* The date of the attack: 9/11 – 9 + 1 + 1 = 11
* After September 11th there are 111 days left to the end of the year, September 11th is the 254th day of the year:  2 + 5 + 4 = 11.
* Each building had 110 stories, the Twin Towers – standing side by side, looks like the number 11.
* The first plane to hit the towers was Flight 11.
Occultists place great power in the number ‘11′ and all its multiplications and groupings. The number ‘11′ is the most important number relating to the coming Antichrist. The Bible lists him as the “11th” horn in Daniel 7:7-8.
“The Pet Goat”
It isn’t easy to find a children’s book or any story about a pet goat. The biggest claim to fame of Reading Mastery II by Engelmann and Bruner is that it is the book from which President Bush famously read “The Pet Goat” story on the morning of September 11th, 2001.
Besides representing the Temple or Home of the gods, the goat represents the active male sexual or fertility aspect of nature. As Capricorn he rules the returning sun, from the darkness of winter solstice. In the sign of the Goat/Capricorn the sun begins to resume its ascent towards the spring Equinox.
The goat horn is a hallowed phallic symbol.
The Goat Head or the horned goat, goat of mendes, Baphomet, god of the witches, the scapegoat is a Satanists way of mocking Jesus as the  “Lamb” who died for our sins. [13]
