Ok, Ok, the WikiLeaks documents have been released.
Israel should hardly feel incriminated. Discriminated against, perhaps; but not incriminated. Not unless you subscribe to the dangerous Iranian world-view, which much of the world agrees, should have been secured and unplugged, years ago.
The Jewish Country is not guilty of selling the organs of Lebanese killed in the 2006 war. Nor are we using the blood of Palestinian children to bake matzah. Nor are we using the blood of Swedish children to bake matzah. Nor is the Israeli government guilty of selling crack to inner-city Americans. Nor is the IDF guilty of murdering Sudanese refugees at the Egyptian border. No, the Mossad was not behind 9/11.
Among the WikiLeaks disclosures was an Israeli plan to coordinate its 2008 invasion of Gaza with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas; as well as details of Israel’s covert ties with governments in the United Arab Emirates.
What else….what else?
While Lebanon’s prime minister, Saad Hariri was concluding his first diplomatic visit in Iran, and supporting the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program, the New York Times published contents of a cable quoting Hariri’s 2006 conversation with a U.S. diplomat, in Beirut. The attack on “Iraq was unnecessary,” said Hariri, but an attack on “Iran is necessary.” The U.S., he said, “must be willing to go all the way” to stop Iran.
Hardly a week after Syria’s president, Basher Assad, had promised to stop supplying Hezbollah in Lebanon with weapons, a cable from WikiLeaks reports that Damascus actually increased its regular shipments of sophisticated missiles. The kicker is that America had this information, but did not warn Israel, doubtless the would-be victim of any usage of these arms.
Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called the Wikileaks release a “Satanic conspiracy.”
In a meeting with the commander of the U.S. Central Command, General John Abizaid, military leaders from the United Arab Emirates assessed the Iranian as “crazy.” Stir crazy.
Abu Dhabi’s Crown Prince, Muhammad Bin Zayed, urged the U.S. to “take action” against Iran within a year.
Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah repeatedly urged Washington to attack Iran, to “cut off the head of the snake.” as he phrased it. “May God prevent us from falling victim to their evil…We have had correct relations over the years, but the bottom line is that they cannot be trusted.”
And a senior Jordanian official warned the Americans to, “bomb Iran or you will have to learn to live with its bomb.”
If The World Is Blaming Iran, Why Is Obama Blaming Israel?
The Knesset will not hold a debate on WikiLeaks, as there are more pressing matters at hand. Israel should, however, be wary of any breach of confidentiality, exposed by WikiLeaks. But as long as the world is in agreement that the source of the conflict is indeed, Tehran, Israel should also be wary of any information, the U.S. may harbor, for instance Syria’s insistent supplying of arms to Hezbollah. This leaves America’s adamant attitude about freezing Jewish construction in the region very much in question.
In the video below, Speaker of the Knesset, Danny Danon explains to Fox News’ Mike Huckabee, his frustration with Obama’s attitude toward the Jewish State; namely his pressure to freeze settlement building, in lieu of an attack on Iran, say; while the American President continues to fumble his own homeland security – not learning a valuable, how-to, from his snubbed Israeli friends.
