G-8 ‘fully believes’ Israel will attack Iran, says Italy PM

World leaders meet in Ontario for two days of talks, urge Iran to ‘respect rule of law’ and ‘hold transparent dialogue’ over its nuclear program.

World leaders “believe absolutely” that Israel may decide to take military action against Iran to prevent the latter from acquiring nuclear weapons, Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi said Saturday.

“Iran is not guaranteeing a peaceful production of nuclear power [so] the members of the G-8 are worried and believe absolutely that Israel will probably react preemptively,” Berlusconi told reporters following talks with other Group of Eight leaders north of Toronto.

The leaders of the G-8, which comprises Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, Canada and the United States, devoted much of their two-day session to discussion of the contentious nuclear programs unfolding in North Korea and Iran.

The leaders issued a statement on Saturday calling on Iran to “respect the rule of law” and to “hold a “transparent dialogue” over its nuclear ambitions.

In their communiqué, the leaders of the world’s richest countries said they respected Iran’s right to a civilian nuclear program, but noted that such a right must be accompanied by commitment to international law.
“We are profoundly concerned by Iran’s continued lack of transparency regarding its nuclear activities and its stated intention to continue and expand enriching uranium, including to nearly 20 percent,” they said in a communique.

“Our goal is to persuade Iran’s leaders to engage in a transparent dialogue about its nuclear activities and to meet Iran’s international obligations,” adding that they urged the Islamic Republic “to implement relevant resolutions to restore international confidence in the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear program.”

Their conclusions followed Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s declaration late last week that Tehran was prepared to lay down its conditions to the international community regarding discussion of its nuclear program.

    Does anyone see the hypocrisy in the request by the G8 leaders asking Iran to “respect the rule of law” and to “hold a “transparent dialogue” over its nuclear ambitions when Israel has over how many Nuclear weapons, over 200? That’s right we do not know how many because Israel refuses to even acknowledge they have nuclear weapons let alone even consider “respect the rule of law” and to “hold a “transparent dialogue” over their nuclear ambitions.

    Iran – has no nuclear weapons, they do not wage war on their neighbors, they are a member of the Nuclear non-Proliferation treaty.

    Israel – has nuclear weapons, wages war on its neighbors, is not, I repeat, is not a member of the Nuclear non-proliferation treaty. Israel should bomb itself based on its reasons for wanting to bomb Iran.

    World War III…brought to you by the Jews (again!).

    Why are Christians so ignorant about the Jews? Is it the brainwashing that the Jews have done through the mainstream media over the past 50-60 years (or more)? Or is it because many of their leaders are two-faced Zionist stooges?

  • Steve says:

    World leaders are asking Iran to respect the rule of law. Are these people insane? Do they know the meaning of double standards? Iran is abiding by international rules, Israel is not. How about bombing Israel, (300 illegal nukes and growing) into the stone age along with all their insane supporters, those who comprise the Illuminati along with all their sock puppets who were in Toronto on vacation for three days, payed for (one billion dollars) by the Canadian taxpayers who are annyally extorted of their money against their will by the criminal elites. How long are people going to put up with this insanity. Oil volcano in the Gulf of Mexico, daily chemtrails, GM modified plants and animals that are deadly as food, dying bees, bats, frogs,snakes, wales, dolphins and God only knows what else is going extinct. Now these monsters who have thoroughly polluted the entire biosphere with their depleted uranium death dust are posed to multiply these deadly particles in our atmosphere so that we will all be dying of cancers. That is how these Rothschilds, Windsors, Rockerfellers and co. monsters intend to kill us all to supposedly protect us from nonexistent Iranian nukes while killing us in our homes. It is easy to see who is the real enemy here. Now to top it all of, they want to forcefully vaccinate all of us because we are not getting sick and dying fast enough for them, now we won’t even have the right to say no to having poison injected into our veins. Wake up people, they are declaring war on us all.

  • Vee says:

    Thanks Steve,
    I was going to leave a comment but YOU said it all for me. I AM awake. Wish the rest of the world was. Makes me not want to get out of bed some days but I know I have to be strong for friends and family since it WILL get worse thanks to the ones you mentioned. Glad I’m not alone at least.

  • Ken says:

    Iran signed Nuclear Non Proliferation treaty, unlike the nuclear madmen in IsraHell.

    Once again, the ZioNAZIS will draw the US into fighting their war for conquest of the middle east.

    “Our race is the Master Race. We are divine gods on this planet. We are as different from the inferior races as they are from insects. In fact, compared to our race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best. Other races are considered as human excrement. Our destiny is to rule over the inferior races. Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader with a rod of iron. The masses will lick our feet and serve us as our slaves.”

  • Bill says:

    Steve, thanks well put. I can only add that the police, military and mercenaries that do the dirty work are going to suffer the same fate as us, but they`re to blind and/or stupid to know it.

  • Maria says:

    Wars are evil, natural disaster will happen, environmental disaster like the one in the Gulf could may be have been prevented, if they would have spend more money on more safety.
    Steven is apparently a Jew hater.
    If you just look at the top of some Israeli’s and you want to kill the rest of the population for that. What do a lot of countries in the world than have to think of the good ol USA, how many millions have we killed since WWII.
    But if you favor Iran over Israel, I guess you are prepared to have Islam as your religion.
    The disaster in the gulf, the unemployment, two expensive wars with no end in sight
    are draining our economy.
    But ISLAM is a real scary threat too.
    When will the next attack be or is it coming from within.
    Dead fish and animals, horrible.
    But look how the animals we eat are being treated, how cruel, lot of them are sick, full of anti-biotics and hormones. Why are we not more screaming about that.
    The way they are being slaughtered. Bon Appetite!!!

    I was going to write something but the fellow ahead of me …Steve said almost to the letter what I was going to say….except I am speaking to people on the Gulf and they are telling me different stories about how bad the beaches are……and how sick people are getting wait till a storm surge pushes the toxic chemicals inland and it gets into the water table…

  • Angus says:

    Not to rain on your parade there Steve but what possible benefit would the “illuminati” have in destroying the planet, the food, the environment, the entire ecosystem we all live and share? They have kids too who must carry on and live in the planet as well…unless there is some other earth that they will inherit that I’m unaware of.

    There has to be another explanation that better fits the circumstances. I’m not buying it.

  • Arne says:

    I agree with the above statement from Steve. This Zionist movement has gone on so far that it is now over the edge and has been so for quite some time. I notice “they” are as transparent as can be because “their” jobs are supposedly done, “they” think it is over but I truly believe what they are creating will be done to themselves squared. I for one can’t wait to witness that morbid shadow in the world disappearing but, of course, not without seeing the desperation in their hearts and consternation in their eyes as the destruction of their souls commences with great fervor. In the meantime, I profess gratitude that I am living in this time and place and that I chose to be a witness. And when I must hear the media, I just know that what I hear is the exact opposite of what they are telling me. This is how I stay sane through it all. Much love to all who know the truth and those who should.

    ISRAEL’S BRUTALITY
    Israel’s sadistic cruelty has surpassed the monstrous behaviour of other notorious barbarians.
    The famous Israeli academic Yeshayahu Leibowitz described Israel’s mentality with the following statement: “Everything Israel has done since 1967 was either evil stupidity, or stupidly evil.”
    When asked about the Israeli army (the IDF) he replied: “they behave like JUDEO-NAZIS.”
    The persecution, harassment, torture, incarceration, and deliberate slaughter of thousands of innocent Palestinian civilians since 1948, has made the word “JUDAISM” synonymous with “BARBARISM”.
    Innocent Palestinian men, women, and children have been incarcerated for decades for no reason at all.
    Hundreds of D.U (Depleted Uranium) and Phosphorus bombs have been dropped on Gaza because the majority of the Palestinians voted for a Government that believes in justice and freedom.
    The Israelis make huge profits from the sale of Palestinian body parts.
    The Israelis have destroyed 70% of the homes in Gaza. To add insult to injury, they will not allow the importation of bricks and cement to Gaza! Hence the Israeli’s violent rage when they learned that the GOOD SAMARITANS were bringing bricks, cement, and medicaments, to the desperate Palestinians, in their HUMANITARIAN AID FLOTILLAS.
    ONLY A DESPICABLE BARBARIAN WOULD KILL A GOOD SAMARITAN.
    Barbarians should be ostracized by all righteous nations and all ethical people in the world.

  • paddy says:

    Where was the rule of law when Israel committed acts of piracy and murder on the high seas May 31?
    The fact is that Israel has no right to Palestine at all. Jews are not chosen people as I detail at whatisknown.com.
    The bible stories are false and they were stolen from an earlier time. The flood story, the creation, Moses, etc. can all be shown to have been recorded earlier in time by people in India, Persia, Babylonia and Egypt.
    The jews just adopted some other tales and conjured up a false claim to land. They are just thieves and murderers if we ignore the piracy, torture, swindling, extortion, warmongering, etc.
    The good news is that Iran will not be a pushover like Iraq. They have Sunburn missiles that could sink many of the ships massing off their coastline. They held Iraq at bay for eight years while America and others provided support for Iraq. The Iranians know that they will be treated like Iraqis and Afghanis have been so they will fight to the end.

    If a nuclear missile could be bought in a local store, I would bet that millions worldwide would pitch in to help Iran buy a few, because Israel already has nuclear weapons that were built outside of “the rule of law” and they refuse to sign treaties or to allow inspections. Maybe the G in G8 stands for gullible.

    Go Iran GO . If attacked by Israel nuke it ! And if you have long range missiles that can reach London , Rome and Washington nuke them too .

  • Tim says:

    This is frightening. If Israel attacks Iran which it surely will there will be a MASSIVE attack in the USA by ISRAEL! Becuase Israel will have attacked Iran, the American people will AUTOMATICALLY blame the Tehran regime. My God the set-up is so obvious, nuclear weapon (dirty bomb) detonated on US Soil? Queen Elizabeth is going to the UN on July 6th to give a speech on world peace. World Peace!! She is going to WARN the world that unless it licks Zionisms boots, there will be HELL ON EARTH. She will just use double-speak that that the uneducated masses don’t understand but the people who need to understand it will

  • luciferslastdays says:

    The PTB know we are on to them so expect an absolute barage to be unleashed. war, famine(due to the oil spill)neutron bombs, gmo bio weapons(irans retaliation)gmo food. more chemtrailing, more terror attacks. time to pick sides, there cannot be any fence sitting anymore. like obi wan said to vader “strike me down and i will become more powerful than you can possibly imagine”. The power of force cannot overcome the power of love. peace.

  • Steve says:

    This has gone beyond Alice in Wonderland.

    Iran is not the one disrespecting Interanational Law, that would be the USA and Israel, who are instead demanding that international laws be suspended in their case, and extended in Iran’s case, to mean whatever they say it is.

    Unlike the USA, Iran is a signatory of the NPT, in good standing, despite the rhetoric and lies from the US side, the USA is in breach both in its direct obligations, and in the fact it has/is assisting NON NPT signatory states to aquire nuclear weapons.

    One of those states is israel, which is not only NOT a signatory of the NPT< it has a large illegal nuclear arsenal and the obvious intentions behind regulat threats, to use them.

    The truth is quite the opposite of the bulldust being spouted in the Zionist owned whore media. Iran is a reliable and over regulated member of the NPT in good dtanding, the USA is an NPT signatory in poor standing and with no credibility whilst Israel is just a rogue nuclear state.

    Oh well, never mind. They are Jewish so they get a free card to do whatever they want and the rest of us just have to suck it up.

  • I support Isreal 100% over this attack. Iran is very agressive and we need to shut it up emediatly and not allow it to gain Nuclear weapons. Iran will create Chaos and its goverment are dedicated to the destruction of Isreal.

    I beleive that Isreal not only has a right to do that, but a duty to attack Iran and for the US and western Nations to back up Isreal as this country is very expansionist, very fundamenta and like Adolf Hiter and wartime Japan Toe Joe from 1939-45 and Japan 1942-45.

  • Randy says:

    Iran is not expansionist. They have not attacked anybody in modern times.

    To bad the same cant be said of us. We have at least 4 wars on the go and looking to start more. Our Nukes are blackmail to allow us to do as we like and the world be damned.

  • David says:

    They ask Iran to follow the law and be transparent yet Israel with hundreds of Nukes is not asked the same.
    This does not fly and it never will fly Israel must be as transparent as the rest.

  • GreyWolf says:

    When it comes to blogs, few bloggers are swayed by what others say. We are already set in what we believe. The same for goes for Israel & Iran. Regardless of what we think, Iran and Israel are going to do as they please. World opinion is not going to stop either one from doing what they want to do. Let’s just hope there isn’t going to be war (again) and America is dragged into it (again).

  • Matthew says:

    World leaders “believe absolutely” that Israel may decide to take military action against Iran….

    the members of the G-8 are worried and believe absolutely that Israel will probably react preemptively….

    WHAT inflamatory reporting:”believe absolutely” that ….MAY decide and believe absolutely that….PROBABLY react. This is pure propaganda.

    Israel continues to thumb its nose at UN sanctions and requests for transparency about ITS nuclear program which is completely NOT for peaceful purposes. Israel maintains and threatens the region with a formidable nuclear deterent and yet denies that right to its neighbors, Iran being at the top of the list. Better that Israel disarm and discard their nukes, stop oppressing the Palestinian population and enter into meaniful dialogue with all parties in the region to find a fair and lasting solution to peace. THAT is what will save the them and the rest of the planet from this endless petty bickering that threatens to engulf the world in armed conflict and war.

    War is nothing more than murder to the sound of trumpets. It is the need for old men to send young men into battle to prove their declining manhood and maintain the illusion of control over others. It stinks any and everywhere it happens and in the end its the average Joe out there who suffers. Not the leadership, which is really the true wrongness of the process.

    If Israel wants to insure its decay and ultimate destruction then by all means let it attack Iran. They may prevail for the day, perhaps even a decade,,maybe more, but attacking a vengence oriented society like Iran will only strengthen the Islamic mentality they so vigorously seem to want to resists. Attack Iran and the whole rest of the Muslim world will forget THEIR petty differences and band together to destroy the zionist state of Israel once and for all. It may take them a year,a decade or centuries,but they will do it simply out of their code of “honor and venegence”,cracked and misguided as that code may be. And the rest of the planet will suffer as well, all of which is needless and useless.

    It is easy to be the bully on the block. Eventually though a bigger bully comes along to depose the previous one or the bullied band together and fight back to regain their own status and independence. And so it is with Iran, who happens to be the next rising bully and the voice of all those in the region who are sick and tired of being bullied by a nation of a few million whose claims to the lands they are occupying at present are suspect at best.

    Be warned Israel: Attack Iran and solidify your own destuction sooner or latter, but be assured it will come, in one form or another.

  • Lahdahn says:

    I’ve been to Dimona, Israel and know for a fact they have nuclear weapons. Israel just want to be the only bully on the block that have any. It’s not about nuclear weapons, it’s about Iran changing from selling oil in dollars. This same problem happened with Iraq as Hussein changed from the dollar from selling oil and look what happened to him and his country! That’s why Iran stopped short of changing back in 2003 and started arming themselves with their own homemade weapons. Now you know the TRUTH of it all. Stay wise.

  • Jacko says:

    Uhhh… Something’s not right with this picture. Israel is not part of the G-8, so shouldn’t the G-8 have the power to tell Israel to cool-it on the nuclear threats. I mean surely Israel can’t be more powerful than all of the G-8 nations combined, right? (tongue-in-cheek). This is ludicrous. Everyone knows that Israel is the danger here; look at what they do to the Palestinians on a constant basis. It seems that the G-8 are not going to do anything, except let this “Monster” go and attack Iran. I hope the USA and other countries don’t get involved if this happens- but if it does, I think Israel would send nukes in 9 different directions at the same time, and fear no reprisal.

  • mohammad says:

    i am iranian and a student of medicine.i just wanted to know if you have thought about all nuclear weapons that western countries produce.our governers have told thousands of time that we are against war and terrorism and nuclear weapons because we belive in freedom and peace as have been said in our holy book.

    which country has started wars against other nations in the past 100 years?
    dont you think that a percent of your militry costs for war all around the world can help palestinians to stay alive? they are starving to death and all the roads to there is blocked by israelean.why? because they want to have a government just like any other nation in the world.
    is this your freedom that you talk about?
    i have been brought up in europe and i know the people there are awesome though i am baffled about the governers.it seems that they get instructions from israel directly.i would be happy to get my answers and if you belive i am wrong please tell me.
