Likud minister Tzachi Hanegbi, an ally of Benjamin Netanyahu, has recently made a bold statement which seems to suggest that Israel is prepared to wage a nuclear war with Iran if Joe Biden happens to proceed with the nuclear deal. Hanegbi declared:
“If the United States government rejoins the nuclear deal — and that seems to be the stated policy as of now — the practical result will be that Israel will again be alone against Iran, which by the end of the deal will have received a green light from the world, including the United States, to continue with its nuclear weapons program. This of course we will not allow. We’ve already twice done what needed to be done, in 1981 against the Iraqi nuclear program and in 2007 against the Syrian nuclear program”
Here were have a serious problem. Whether you are a Democrat, Republican, non-partisan, we all need to be united on this very issue: no more war for Israel! We’ve all had enough. It was Iraq, then Afghanistan, then Syria, then Libya, and now we are back to Iran? And the reason for the war?
A categorical lie, a colossal hoax, and a thread-bare fabrication. And what’s that fabrication? Iran seeks to develop nuclear weapons which they will use against Israel. That mantra has been repeated since 1979, and the Israelis were hoping that people forget their history so that they can repeat the same old lie virtually every month or so.
We’ve already had numerous domestic issues that we all have to deal with, and we simply cannot afford to let the Israelis lead us into another war in the Middle East. Hanegbi continues to say:
“The Iranians want permission from Assad to act freely in Syria, to transform it into the model of Hezbollah [the Lebanon-based Iran-backed terror group]. This is all to deter us from acting against its nuclear program.”
The evidence for this nonsense? Well, Hanegbi presented none. He expects the entire world to believe him because he is, after all, an Israeli official. They do possess evidence that the world does not possess. Hanegbi:
“The most important thing is to convince the incoming American administration not to repeat the mistakes of the Obama administration — to appease the Iranians. This only increased Iranian aggression and defiance. They saw this as American weakness.”
Biden should pick up where Obama left off, and he will certainly make Americans proud if he can avoid another disaster in the Middle East. One more thing that we should point out here is that if the Israelis happen to wage a war with Iran, then we can be sure that they are slowly but surely heralding their doom because it will eventually be revealed to the entire world that Israel is indeed a menace, a rogue state, and a diabolical regime that needs to be bridled once and for all.
