Israelis threaten to nuke Europe & state the world will fight WW3, like it or not - Why is Iran the problem?

Arizona Daily Star

Saturday, April 27, 2002

The terror attacks on Sept. 11 and extreme turmoil in the Middle East point to one thing - World War III, a spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said Friday during a visit to Tucson (Arizona).

"We've been fighting a war for the past 18 months, which is the harbinger of World War III. The world is going to fight, whether they like it or not. I'm sure,'' Ra'anan Gissin, a senior adviser to Sharon, said in an interview Friday.

"We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets for our air force.... Our armed forces, however, are not the thirtieth strongest in the world, but rather the second or third. We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that that will happen before Israel goes under."

    Israel is famous for it's bluffs. What you're talking about is the Samson Option, which is supposed to be a threat to Europe that if Israel goes down, they are going to take various European capitals with them. This is an insane threat, but I believe it's purpose, if it ever did reach European ears, is probably a warning to Europeans to keep their distance from Israel and not try to hinder them in any way. There's no question that the leaders of Israel are mega maniacal people who actually speak about unleashing nuclear war in order to make them seem too mad to interfere or mess with. Israel is the true rogue state with its contraband nuclear weapons.

    If there is a Third World War, I can easily think that Israel would start it by convincing Americans to attack Iran. Iran has several allies including Russia and China, and it would be a serious mistake to try to conquer them in a world which is weary of war. Iran must be at least 10 years down the road from building any sort of bomb, and they haven't attacked anyone in recent history. Amadinijad's comment was taken out of context and made into a threat. What he really meant was that the Zionist Regime will eventually crumble in Israel and be relegated to the ash pile of history, like the Soviet regime that collapsed on its own. This has been twisted to mean that he wants to wipe Israel off the map.

    Iran has a sizable army, and it would take a massive build up of American forces in both Iraq and Afghanistan to conquer it. I don't see how they are going to get these forces without bringing the draft up again, because our all volunteer army is stretched to its limits. Either that, or America must make a nuclear first strike on Tehran to put the country in disarray before an invasion. Notice that Israel bluffed just recently that they were going to bomb Iran's nuclear reactor itself, but that was an empty threat to cajole the U.S. into taking action. Israel wouldn't dare attack Iran by itself, because theres no way they would win without resorting to tactical nuclear weapons. I suspect though, they want to rule Iran through a regime that's loyal to Israel and America and don't want an irradiated Iran. The Israels and their military are more bark than bite, and always have been.

    i don't know if your dog has had any obedience training but form your answer it sounds rather like a no (sorry if i'm wrong). So i assume he has not - you need to spend a lot of time teaching him who is the leader and training him to perform basic obedience commands. Read here https://tr.im/H3J67

    To have a dog come to you - if you chase or move towards your dog, he will never come to you and he will see it as a game that you are tring to catch him. Have a yummy treat in your hand (like cooked chicken pieces) and let him know what you have. Once he is coming towards you to get his treat, say Come! and when he reaches you without running away, reward him. You can do this on a leash first, but dont use the command many times in a row as your dog will learn that he doesnt have to obey you the first time you say it.

    Another tip is to tie ur dog on the leash, tie your leash to your waist and don't say anything to the dog, just walk anywhere like you normally would, and when the dog starts pulling the other direction, walk the opposite way so he has to learn to follow you. Do this for about 2 weeks as many times per day as you can, the longer the better, and after some time your dog will learn to follow you without the leash too.

    are you taking your dog on daily long walks? or is he just in the garden the whole time? dogs need exercise, some more than others and when they have too much energy, you can't train them as they will not listen, so make sure you drain off some of his energy by a longer walk or a game and you can train him after he has calmed down.

    Hotep,

    Because the West is firmly Judea-christianity, and their own holy books states that israel is the holy land and they are gods "chosen" people. Additionally, the state of israel is nothing more than the extension of western ideals and power into the region at a vital place. Israels location gives the west a military presences in north africa and the middle east. However, more to the truth, israel control the politics of the west through money. The international banks of the west are headed, all of them by jews. Thus, israel will never be displayed in a negative light, regardless of what israel does.

    Salaam, shalom, peace

    Last paragraph Maurog .

    "But would the world permit such ethnic cleansing? 'That depends on who does it and how quickly it happens. We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome. Most European capitals are targets for our air force. Let me quote General Moshe Dayan: "Israel must be like a mad dog, too dangerous to bother." I consider it all hopeless at this point. We shall have to try to prevent things from coming to that, if at all possible. Our armed forces, however, are not the thirtieth strongest in the world, but rather the second or third. We have the capability to take the world down with us. And I can assure you that that will happen before Israel goes under.' "

    There are some mad leaders around all over the world. The general population of most countries just want to be left in peace with their families. If humans do succeed in destroying themselves and each other we are just a tiny atom in a vast universe.

    Perhaps there is a reason why Ariel Sharon has been in a coma? Who knows?

    Here, in 2010, Iran is a problem because of the entire world not giving a crap about Israel. Hating Israeli's because they've done very well for themselves is like saying you hate capitolism and free enterprize. Its not fair is the point. Iran=Huge and highly populated, indoctrinated to blow Israel off the map. Israel=The size of Jersey and just want to maintain their land which they rightfully won, and have always had right to since God made the covenant with them.

    "Hating Israeli's because they've done very well for themselves is like saying you hate capitolism and free enterprize"

    Errr... but purist free enterprise capitalism would surely blow a whistle here and decry the sheer amount of subsidy from the United States taxpayer that has enabled Israelis to "do very well for themselves". Isn't the point of free enterprise that you do it entirely for yourself without "sucking on the welfare teat" of government money - anybody's government? Othwerwise its just goddamm socialism...

    This is because Israel is the only country that wants peace. Were did you get the idea that it's the Israeli's that want to nuke anyone? When that is all Iran talks about doing to them? Who's News does you use? Some junk off this Internet?

    I don't see any threats to nuke Europe... yeah, Israel can launch all sort of stuff, but will never do it first.

    Iran, on the other head, is currently governed by a frothing at the mouth Holocaust denier.

    The U.S. and Israel have been bed-buddies for a long time. You won't find much in American media to condemn Israel, no matter what they do or threaten.
