Iran has been nearing a successful talk with the United States and the European Union over its nuclear program. It seems like a great leap forward for Iran losing its status as an enemy of the United States and other Western powers. While peaceful talks are underway, Israel prepares to launch a multi-billion dollar war against Iran.
It seems that the “Jewish State” cannot let go of past issues and tensions. Israel has made the claim that they hold the right to attack Iran. The attacks would be done alone as Israel has been so adamant in their pursuit of war with Iran, other allies have abandoned the warmongering country to fend for themselves as is their new intention. The new budget reported by Haaretz newspaper, has ten billion shekels or around three billion dollars of funds to prepare for a strike on Iranian nuclear sites, an act that will surly begin a war in the region.
Debates over the progressing talks between Western powers and Iran were quickly dismissed in Israeli parliament by army commanders who claimed higher-ups decided to continue the set course. Israeli leaders claim the talks are but a ruse in order for Iran to recover their economy and to go unhindered in their pursuit of nuclear weapons and becoming one of the few nations in the middle east with such capabilities. Defense Minster Moshe Yaalon called the United States weak-willed for attempting to talk out Iran’s nuclear program.
He makes the claim that no one can police the world better than the United States and hopes it will come “to its senses” on the matter. Israeli’s persist in their rhetoric claiming their nation is in immediate threat from a nuclear strike. The repeated idea of Iran wishing to remove Israel off the map does not discredit everything they do. Iran has never engaged in an offensive war in its history. Israel however, sees itself drowning in a sea of enemies for no reason. The reason they refuse to accept is the persecution of native Palestinians and constant attacks on other muslim nations in the area. To not have enemies would show far too much forgiving in the Muslim world.
Israel fails to see the remote possibility of Iran trying to better its situation by improving their infrastructure and, with the talks in Vienna, their relations across the globe. Every minute that Iran hopes to build nuclear plants is seen as another minute that Israel is in danger. They are seen as the biggest terrorist group on the planet and Israel is adamant in assuring that the world regurgitates the words of the world’s “victim”. The biggest threat to stability in the Middle East has proven to be Israel’s insecurity with the surrounding nations. Never once has the nation tried to hold a summit of sorts to talk out the issues. Israel’s hand was held by American arms during its early stages and now feels that it has enough munitions, cause and power to finally prepare for war against an enemy as what should be seen a rogue state.
