Israel must strike Iran with everything and Israel must protect tiself against this Iranian Nuclear Bomb.
We Trotskyists on 4international have a proud history and we stand behind Israel unconditionally.
Those who do not do so and are not on this issue totally exlicit are traitors to socialism
The time to act is now.
This means a total break from the forces of American Imperialism.
Reactionary Jewish leaders like Ted Belman of Israpundit must come out in the open and declare a break from US Imperialist politicians like Joseph Lieberman who backed the Islamofascist Izetbegovic in Bosnia.
We issue a challenge to Belman and his crony friend Jerry Gordon
State your position now precisely
1. What is the present position of Lieberman
2. What is your position towards Lieberman
Otherwise all of your crowing against Obama is empty rhetoric IS IT NOT???
As before we quote re the serious nature of the issue of the Iranian bomb from Debka
The second Israeli cabinet-level discussion in the last few days on the Iranian threat – nuclear and regional – took place Monday, Sept. 7, in the inner cabinet, on the heels of a recent security cabinet meeting which surveyed Israel military and homeland security preparations for a missile attack from four sources, Iran, Syria, the Lebanese Hizballah and the Palestinian Hamas in Gaza.
The Monday meeting was held behind closed doors but DEBKAfile‘s military sources report that speakers underscored the rapid tempo of the developing Iranian threat. Prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu went on to pay an extended visit to Mossad headquarters for talks with its chief Meir Dagan and other officers.
Monday, Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said he was willing to discuss “global challenges” with US president Barack Obama but repeated his government’s standing refusal to negotiate his country’s “inalienable nuclear rights.” This put the lid on the US president’s policy of dialogue with Tehran on its nuclear program and rendered the European engagement initiative pointless.
Monday, too, the head of the UN’s nuclear watchdog, Mohamed ElBaradei, said talks with the Islamic republic were at a “stalemate. He delivered a bleak account of Iran’s nuclear compliance to a board meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna.
Yet tougher UN sanctions are a diminishing prospect in the light of Russian and Chinese objections.
Saturday, Sept. 5, DEBKAfile reported the growing concern in security circles over the failure of the US, Israel and other international parties to put the brakes on Iran’s fast-paced advance toward a nuclear weapon although Obama had been in office for nine months and Netanyahu sat down in the prime minister’s office all of six months ago. Tehran seized this inaction for the biggest leap forward since its hidden nuclear program was launched.
