Here’s a prediction: Isarel will attack Iran to take out it’s nuclear facilities sometime in July or August, and perhaps as early as June. This is no real secret except to Americans who depend upon the mainstream media for their news.
What is my reasoning for this?
- In the recent election, Israel overwhelmingly voted for a hawkish government that would protect the country. Israeli citizens want their safety guaranteed. Half of the country supports an immediate strike on Iran.
- Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has repeatedly said that he will not allow Iran to gain access to nuclear weapons.
- President Barack Obama does not support Israel. A few days ago, the Obama administration stepped in to block the sale of six advanced Apache helicopters to Isreal out of concern that they might be used to harm Palestinans.
- The US estimates that Iran could have a nuclear bomb sometime in 2010. Israel believes that Iran could have nuclear capabilities in 2009.
- Less than two weeks ago, Iran successfully tested a missile that is capable of accurately striking anywhere in Israel.
Israel has little time to act, yet it must act in order to survive.
The largest preparedness drill in Israel’s history begins tomorrow and lasts for five days.
The exercise will begin Sunday at the weekly Cabinet meeting, with ministers expected to respond to the alert.
On Monday, local authorities will be included in the exercise, as will government ministries, Israel Police, the IDF, the National Emergency Authority and Home Front Command.
On Tuesday, an air raid siren will bring the rest of Israel into the drill, sounding the alert at precisely 11:00 a.m. in every community across the country. School teachers and staff members will guide their students into the bomb shelters, while citizens in offices and homes will be told to enter safe rooms. Roads will be blocked as well, as they might be during a real crisis.
On Wednesday, the National Security Cabinet will be drilled, and the national information and data management system will be tested.
The final day of the exercise will be held Thursday, when IDF units will carry out field exercises. The Home Front Command will continue drills at its headquarters as well.
This is on the heels of a 4-day military drill that simulated a war on three fronts: Syria, Gaza, and Lebanon’s Hezbollah. Not only that, but Israel staged a drill earlier in May that took planes as far away as Gibraltar.
The Israel Air Force recently staged military exercises between Israel and the British colony of Gibraltar near southern Spain, the French magazine L’Express reported on Saturday.
The fact that the drills were held 3,800 kilometers away from Israel “confirms that the Israel Defense Forces is making concrete preparations” to attack Iran over its refusal to cooperate with the international community over its contentious nuclear program, according to L’Express.
Israel will want to attack while the civilian drill is still fresh in everyone’s minds. My estimate is that Israel will attack Iran in the July-August timeframe, and perhaps in June.
I don’t think that Israel will start out using nukes but they very well may end up using them if they are attacked in return.
Americans know little of what is going on beyond our shores. One of the first things that I now do every morning is check the news to see whether either Iran or Israel has attacked the other. Sometime during the next three months, I expect to wake up — or perhaps go to sleep — to a siren on Drudge.
