Mofaz: PM dangerously interfering in US election

“Mr. Prime Minister, you are trying to grossly and dangerously interfere in the US election in an unprecedented manner,” Mofaz said. “Whom do you serve and why? Why are you putting your hands deep in the American ballot boxes? You are playing a dangerous game that will endanger our children’s future.”
[ … ]
“The prime minister is using Dichter’s good name for a corrupt and cynical maneuver,” Mofaz said. “A home front defense minister should not be a rubber stamp in the hands of those planning a hasty attack [on Iran’s nuclear facilities] that has not been coordinated with the United States. Mr. Prime Minister, you are trying to scare the public, and the truth is we are scared because you are implementing such dangerous and irresponsible policies.”

Primakov Warns of “Very Dangerous” Threat of Israeli Attack on Iran

August 9th, 2012 • 12:02 PM

An interview with Yevgeni Primakov, Russia’s former prime  minister, foreign minister, and foreign intelligence chief, > and the country’s senior diplomatic specialist on the Arab > world, appeared in the government newspaper Rossiyskaya > Gazeta today, under the provocative headline, “The Very Near  East.” The date of its publication, exactly four years after  Georgia’s attack on Russian peacekeeping forces in South  Ossetia, underscored Primakov’s sober warning about the  prospects for renewed war in Southeast Asia and its  strategic implications. He discussed both Syria and Iran.  Interviewer Vladimir Snegirev asked about the likelihood of  “a strike by Israel, with or without the support of the  States, against Iran’s nuclear facilities.” Primakov  replied, “The United States doesn’t want that to happen now,  before the President elections. They are restraining  Israel.” But, he went on to say that there are different >  factions on this matter in both Israel and the USA, making  it “difficult to say who will have the upper hand.” Primakov compared the situation with August 2008, when U.S. Secretary  of State Condoleezza Rice had told Georgian President  Michael Saakashvili not to move into South Ossetia, but  Saakashvili had relied on a belief he got from contacts with  Vice President Dick Cheney, “that NATO would intervene in his support.” Specifically: “Saakashvili thought that he could reach the Roki Tunnel and block it, whereupon Russia  would be unable to get its tanks across the mountains. And at that point the Americans would intervene. The Israelis  are following the same model. Obama is not the only one they  are in contact with. Somebody might be telling them: if you > make a strike, then the United States, even if they don’t  want to, will support you anyway.”  Snegirev: “So the probability of such a strike remains? And > that presents a danger for this entire, >  enormous region?”  Primakov: “It is very dangerous. Because the impact of an > air strike — and a ground operation is not at issue —  could be miniscule. Within two years Iran will completely > recover, exit the NPT with fanfares, and then for sure will > build its own weapons of mass destruction.”  Concerning Syria, Primakov described the situation as  “fullscale civil war with the involvement of outside  forces.” He mentioned Saudi and Qatari financing of  opposition guerrillas, mercenaries, and volunteers from outside of Syria, and Turkish support for the opposition, adding, “And here’s the latest: President Obama has directly  ordered the CIA to support the Syrian opposition.” Primakov  called these activities “gross interference in the internal  affairs of a sovereign nation that presents no threat > whatsoever to the United States or anybody else.”  Primakov said he thought that Russia’s position toward the > situation in Syria “could be called the only correct one in this situation.” This is not > necessarily a policy which will prevail, he said, but “we  are taking a moral approach, based on concern for the lives > and security of millions of people and the future stability of an enormous and important region.” He added that Russia’s > sticking to its policy, especially of not advocating the ouster of President Bashar Assad, was not being done for  narrow advantage, and was even hurting Russia’s relations > with several Arab countries. Members of the Arab League that  are primarily Sunni, he pointed out, are worried that  Assad’s prevailing in the conflict will “create the  conditions for the formation of a Shi’ite belt of  Iraq-Iran-Syria-Lebanon, whereas the overthrow of Assad  would mean the establishment of a Sunni regime in Damascus,  launching mass repressions against Baath Party members and  Alawites generally. Thus, said Primakov, “all talk to the  effect that the West, in supporting the opposition, wants to establish democracy and stability in Syria holds no water at all.” In a discussion of the Arab Spring, Primakov cautioned against “demonizing” the United States as its orchestrator. > He emphasized the economic crisis, especially for youth facing high unemployment, as a key trigger. Even now, > Primakov disagreed with the notion that “radicals” have come out on top everywhere. In Egypt, for example, he called the > Muslim Brotherhood “a fairly moderate organization,” compared with its branches elsewhere, and there the > political question for the country will be the Brotherhood’s interaction with the more radical Salafites. Primakov also discussed Kurdish issues, Israel-Palestine  relations, and Afghanistan in the wide-ranging interview.


Israeli Military & Intelligence Institutions Push To Stop Netanyahu’s Thermonuclear War Trigger in Iran 

August 7th, 2012 • 12:00 AM

In almost non-stop articles and interviews since August 3,  top figures in the Israeli security establishment have taken  to radio and print media to warn that Bibi Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak are intent on an Israeli attack on Iran and to oppose this insanity. Ha’aretz journalist Amos Harel puts the word out: These  people are not just talking—they are the people who know,  and they know that Bibi intends to attack Iran, and they are trying to stop him. Gideon Levy of Ha’aretz also warns, “Israel will attack Iran within a few weeks, according to  Maj. Gen. Aharon Ze’evi Farkash…. We can assume that  Farkash, one of the most responsible and restrained of  speakers knows what he’s talking about.”  “In the past 72 hours, three former top guns of israeli intelligence have discussed, with unnerving candor a  possible attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities,” Harel wrote on Aug. 5. “Do  they know something that remains opaque to the public? > Former IDF intelligence officers continue to have access to security system briefings, even though they are not brought  into the actual planning process of a secret military operation. No less importantly, they know how to analyze  disclosed, public data — and developments — and developments of the past weeks teach them that the likelihood of an Israeli decision in favor of an attack is > now higher than it has been previously.” Most active in opposing the war in the last few days have > been Farkash, the former head IDF intelligence, Maj. Gen. (res.) Amos Yadlin, who succeeded Farkash as IDF  intelligence chief, and Ephraim Levy, former head of the Mossad. Other top Israeli national security officials who continue to try to block Netanyahu’s madness include former Mossad chief Meir Dagan, former Israeli Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazy, former Shin Bet chief Avi Dichter, and former Defense Minister and IDF Chief of Staff Shaul Mofaz who heads the opposition  (actually majority party by one seat) Kadima Party. Other active opposition to the attack on Iran includes the Meretz Party in the Knesset, which has 3 seats: Meretz  chairwoman Zehava Gal-On called for Israeli law to be changed before Israel attacks Iran to require Knesset approval to go to war. Akiva Eldar, one of Ha’aretz’s top security analysts, invokes the Basic Law (Israel has no  Constitution) to show that already Bibi’s inner cabinet of 8 people DOES NOT HAVE THE AUTHORITY to go to war; not even the full 25 member cabinet has the authority to go to war.  Quoting the Basic Law, Eldar writes, “‘the state will not go to war except by a government decision.’ The law goes even further. It requires the government to convey ‘as soon as > possible’ an announcement of its decision to the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee and also to the whole  Knesset.”  Ha’aretz has another 3 articles on August 6 attacking  Netanyahu’s war. Gideon Levy attacks the government for  putting out the assessment that “only” 200 to 300 Israelis will die in Iranian retaliation. “Only,” he says, maybe they  can have a “death lottery” to determine who the dead will  be. But, “no one can deny” another possibility: “the hundreds could become thousands with thousands more wounded.”
