Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin about the Muslim Brotherhood’s takeover of the Egyptian government with the presidential “election” of Mohammed Morsi.
We expect to work together with the new administration on the basis of our peace treaty. I believe that peace is important to Israel. I believe that peace is important to Egypt. I believe that peace is a vital interest for both countries and I believe that peace is the foundation of stability in our region.
Morsi has been speaking with Iran, one of Israel’s enemies, claiming to want to forge “closer relations [to] create a balance of pressure in the region, and this is part of my program.”
In March of this year, the Obama administration ensured the permanency of the Israeli agenda here in the US by the House passage of the United States – Israel Enhanced Security Cooperation Act of 2012 (USIESC). Through the executive order (EO), Obama laid out just how the US will support Israel:
- Production of military grade weapons
- Production and procurement of defense systems
- Allocate US military to assist Israeli forces
- Train Israeli forces
- Protection against common threats
- Expansion of NATO in Israel
- Provide intelligence
The EO also gives Israel a “blank check” on our Federal Reserve Bank to fund their endeavors.
Obama also acknowledges that Iran has been named by Israel as a viable threat to be dealt with.
Voicing their disdain for how Obama is handling the situation in the Middle East, an official for the Israeli government stated:
Our position is that the international community needs to do three things for thetalks to be successful. Make its demands crystal clear and tied to a clear timeline for implementation, ratchet up the economic and diplomatic pressure, and augment that pressure by making clear there is a credible military option.
Israel, who once said they would hold back, have made their intentions to attack Iran very clear. They will not wait for diplomacy, and have promised to strike Iran before the end of 2012.
Using propaganda assertions like Assad is obtaining chemical weapons, Israel is building a case against Syria.
Both Obama and Netanyahu were involved with the covert operation involving Flame (the continuation of Stuxnet); a computer virus unleashed to syphon information from Iranian computers.
Israel and the US plan to hold a joint military training session in October of this year. Included will be military drills of thousands of soldiers and advanced anti-missile defense systems exercises.
It appears to be coincidental that these “war games” will take place just prior to presidential elections in the US.
The two nations, who have become closer over the recent months, are planning to deal with Iran and Syria with as much aggression as they see fit.
A few military analysts have dubbed the drills a “dress rehearsal”, mocking the severity of Obama and Netanyahu’s campaign. Amidst the UN and US sanctions against the two Middle Eastern nations, there is a clear threat of military strike that would serve both the US and Israeli interests.
The preparation for an attack on Iran is being downplayed by the UN, while the international community is escalating their claims that Iran’s supposed nuclear endeavors are a violation of treaties; as well as the Iranian government’s failure to properly cooperate with UN inspectors.
In response to the threatening stance of the US, Israel and the UN, Iran and its allies (Russia, China and Syria) are preparing for war themselves. Sources from Iran’s media claim that “90,000 soliders from the 4 countries are to take part” in massive war games. Included are Chinese warships, Russian atomic submarines, aircraft carriers, and Iranian battleships and submarines.
