Tzachi Hanegbi — a close, trusted, long-time personal friend and confidante of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu — made remarks on Tuesday at a security conference in Tel Aviv that did not make news in the U.S. But they should have.
Hanegbi explained that the time for sanctions and diplomacy and covert options to neutralize the Iranian nuclear threat is over, and the time for Israel to use it’s military option has come.
“It’s now or never,” said Hanegbi, “and the option of never does not exist.”
Hanegbi formerly served as the Minister of Intelligence and as Justice Minister in previous governments. He is currently a Member of Knesset (Likud).
“Israel has to act according to its own imperatives,” he said.
Given how close Hanegbi and Netanyahu are — and given how sensitive the current moment is — it is difficult to believe Hanegbi spoke without knowing the Prime Minister’s mind, and without having his blessing to make such ominous remarks.
Consider other indicators that an Israeli first strike may be increasingly close at hand: At the same conference, Israeli Major Gen. (res.) Amos Yadlin, a former head of IDF Military Intelligence, said that “for all intents and purposes, Iran has crossed Israel’s red line…in the summer, Iran will be a month or two away from deciding about a bomb.” Netanyahu and his inner circle are watching how Iran has been accelerating its building of uranium centrifuges, expanding its nuclear facilities, and possibly building secret new facilities. President Obama is doing nothing after the Assad regime in Syria crossed the Obama “red line” by using chemical weapons against the rebels, killing and wounding many. Are they concluding the White House is serious about dealing with Iran if and when Tehran crosses the “red line”? Hardly. Netanyahu and his inner circle are watching how President Obama is doing nothing to stop North Korea from building — and testing — nuclear warheads and the ballistic missiles to deliver them. Are they concluding the White House is serious about preventing nuclear proliferation? Again, hardly. Netanyahu are his inner circle are watching how President Obama has pulled U.S. military assets out of the Persian Gulf region, claiming budget cutbacks. All this suggests the Netanyahu team believes it is all alone to deal with the Iran problem.
Israel PM Benjamin Netanyahu Address to United Nations on Iran and Radical Islam End Times News Update 4-4-13 Israel PM Benjamin Netanyahu Iran Nuclear bomb stage 2 REDLINE by Spring 2013 then weeks to have Nuclear Bomb – North Korea just tested a nuclear warhead with Iranian nuclear officials present, and the two countries may be working hand in glove to get Iran ready to build and deploy The Bomb. Israel believes Iran is getting dangerously close now to the very nuclear “red line” that Prime Minister Netanyahu warned of at the U.N. last fall. Netanyahu will soon have a new government enabling him to take action if necessary.
Netanyahu is likely to appoint Moshe “Bogie” Ya’alon as Defense Minister — Ya’alon is a former IDF chief of staff, has been intimately involved in getting Israel ready for a possible war; Ya’alon has been hesitant about force, preferring covert means, but my sense is he is becoming resolved that force may be inevitable.
A top former Israeli military official said publicly this week that a preemptive strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities would a “one night operation.”
concerning Iran. US Officials who have long been hesitant about the use of military force against Iran are now reluctantly suggesting it may not be possible to avoid war after all.
Vice President Biden, Secretary Kerry, and the Commander of CENTCOM — as well as Henry Kissinger, Dennis Ross and Elliot Abrams, and this is what you will hear:
The nuclear crisis with Iran is coming to a head.
Diplomacy and sanctions have not succeeded and may have run their course.
The Iranians are not making concessions.
Instead, Tehran is accelerating its nuclear efforts and is dangerously close to building nuclear warheads.
President Obama still does not want the U.S. to take the lead on a military operation — naming Chuck Hagel as SecDef underscored this point.
