    Iran has the capability to strike arch-foe Israel's nuclear sites firmly and will do so if it comes under attack, the head of the elite Revolutionary Guards Corps said on Saturday.

    Asked by Iran's Arabic language television channel Al-Alam whether Iran has the ability to strike Israeli nuclear sites, Mohammad Ali Jafari said:
    "Yes, definitely we have this capability because of the advances we have made in the past two years to carry out such a task."

    "We have said that all of Israel's soil is under the coverage of our missiles. We have such capability and can certainly respond to any attack" by Israel.

    Jafari said Iran will give a "firm and precise" answer if attacked by Israel.

    "We are not responsible for this regime and other enemies' foolishness. If they strike Iran, our answer will be firm and precise. They will have no answer when Iran bombards them and sends several of its missiles."

    His comments come a day before the annual day of the Guards.

    Jafari issued a similar statement in March.

    Relations between the two arch-foes have deteriorated in the past four years under the rule of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

    Israel, although widely believed to have nuclear weapons itself, is strongly against Iran's controversial nuclear programme.

    Global powers feel Iran's nuclear drive is aimed at seeking atomic weapons. Tehran denies the charge.

    President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced in May that Iran had successfully test-fired a new medium-range missile, Sejil-2, drawing a warning from Israel that Europe too should now worry about the Islamic republic's ballistic programme.

    US Defence Secretary Robert Gates said the test appeared to have been successful and his information was that the missile will have a range of approximately 2,000 to 2,500 kilometres (1,200 to 1,500 miles).

    How about this for an answer:

    Israel on Iran: Anything it takes to stop nukes


    By ANNE GEARAN, AP National Security Writer Anne Gearan,
    Ap National Security Writer – 36 mins ago


    JERUSALEM – Israel hardened its insistence Monday that it would do anything it felt necessary to stop Iran from getting a nuclear bomb, just the ultimatum the United States hoped not to hear as it tried to nudge Iran to the bargaining table.

    U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates reassured Israel that the new Obama administration was not naive about Iran's intentions, and that Washington would press for new, tougher sanctions against the Iranians if they balk. He didn't say what those might include.Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak used a brief news conference with Gates to insist three times that Israel would not rule out any response - an implied warning that it would consider a pre-emptive strike to thwart Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.

    "We clearly believe that no option should be removed from the table," Barak said. "This is our policy. We mean it. We recommend to others to take the same position, but we cannot dictate it to anyone."

    The question of how to deal with Iran's rapid nuclear advancement has become a notable public difference between the new administrations in Jerusalem and Washington, despite overall close relations. Israel considers itself the prime target of any eventual Iranian bomb.Iran says it is merely trying to develop nuclear reactors for domestic power generation. Israeli leaders fear the U.S. prizes its outreach to Iran over its historic ties to Israel and appears resigned to the idea that Iran will soon be able to build a nuclear weapon.

    Obama says he has accepted no such thing. Still, the United States argues that an Israeli attack against Iran would upset the fragile security balance in the Middle East, perhaps triggering a new nuclear arms race and leaving everyone, including Israel and Iran, worse off.Gates emphasized areas of agreement with Israel, including that the offer of talks with Iran must not be open-ended.

    Later, in neighboring Jordan, Gates was blunt in describing what Iran might expect if it refuses the offer of international arms control talks this year, or walks away from Obama's wider offer of better relations with Washington.
    "If the engagement process is not successful, the United States is prepared to press for significant additional sanctions," Gates said. He added that the U.S. would try to abandon the current policy of gradual international pressure, where layers of generally mild sanctions have been added each time Iran has flouted international demands.

    "We would try to get international support for a much tougher position," Gates said."Our hope remains that Iran would respond to the president's outstretched hand in a positive and constructive way, but we'll see."

    Gates' brief stop in Israel was part of a parade of top Washington officials visiting Israel this week, with Iran and the expansion of Jewish settlements on Arab land the main topics. In each case, the Obama administration is taking a harder line with Israel than the positions taken by President George W. Bush.

    Obama's special Mideast envoy, former Sen. George Mitchell, was the first U.S. official to arrive, largely to discuss U.S.-Israeli differences over the settlements. Gates will be followed Wednesday by National Security Adviser James Jones and his deputy, Mideast and Iran specialist Dennis Ross, both expected to press for Israeli cooperation on Iran. Gates met with Jordanian King Abdullah II in Amman after leaving Israel on Monday.Mitchell urged Israel to start "dealing with difficult issues like settlements." At the same time, he urged Arab nations to take "genuine steps" toward normalizing ties with Israel.

    The differences over Iran come on top of U.S.-Israeli disagreements over the Mideast peace process - particularly Washington's calls for a halt to Israeli settlement building. The Obama administration is having to press Israel on multiple fronts at once, complicating its diplomacy as it makes a major push to revive Arab-Israeli negotiations.

    All this comes at a time when Washington's policy of dialogue with Iran itself has hit an impasse because of that country's election turmoil.A more cooperative Iran is important for the Mideast peace drive. With its links to Hamas and Hezbollah militants, Iran is capable of heightening tensions in Israel and the Palestinian territories. At the same time, an Israeli strike on Iran would probably push Arab nations away from any peace gestures toward Israel, despite their own rivalries with Tehran.

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu "reiterated the seriousness (with) which Israel views Iran's nuclear ambitions and the need to utilize all available means to prevent Iran from achieving a nuclear weapons capability," Netanyahu's office said following his meeting with Gates.
    While the United States also reserves the right to use force if need be, the Obama administration is playing down that possibility while it tries to draw Iran into talks. Gates said Washington still hopes to have an initial answer in the fall about negotiations.

    "The timetable the president laid out still seems to be viable and does not significantly raise the risks to anybody," Gates said in Israel.

    Both Barak and Gates said time is short. Other officials have said Iran is perhaps one to three years away from being able to build a nuclear weapon. Barak, speaking in both English and Hebrew, gave only lukewarm endorsement to the negotiating strategy.

    "We are not in a situation in which we can tell the United States to hold, or not to hold discussions with Iran," Barak said. "But we repeatedly state our position in closed conversations, which is that a discussion like this should be limited in time, result-oriented, and able to decide if the Iranians are truly serious or not."

    Itamar Rabinovich, a former Israeli ambassador to the U.S., said Israel "isn't anxious to launch military action."

    "It doesn't want this, but Israel thinks more should be done and that diplomacy alone isn't enough. I think Israel and the U.S. are on the same page but on different sides of the paper," he said.

    Wairani ni wajanja vilevile. Mayahudi wanajua kwamba historia inaonyesha wameshindwa kusurvive mara nyingi katika kila nchi; na mwisho wake wameishia kufukuzwa katika hizo nchi. Kitu muhimu kwa Israel wanatakiwa wamsikilize Obama; otherwise wanaufuata moto wenyewe.

    Jeuri ya Israel ni Marekani. Bila Marekani Israel would be nothing. Ndiyo maana Wayahudi wamejaa Marekani na kuji sogeza kwenye nafasi nzuri ya kulobby kwa ajili ya mambo yao.

    Wewe Mwanjelwa vipi? hufahamu kingereza au kiswahili? Iran wamesema "if, if, if they come under attack" unajua maana ya neno "if" an "if not"? Ni Israel ndio wanaojitapa na Provocation and preemptive strikes against Iran wakati wote. Kulikuwa na thread moja juzijuzi humu jamvini "Is Israel already at war with Iran?" ambapo ni Israel ndio inayojitapa kwamba tayari wameanza cyber war against Iran. Hii ndio provacation. Neno "if " huwa linadondoshwa na "if not" kwahiyo if Israel does not attack Iran, nothing will happen, will it? Lakini wewe ulitaka Iran waseme vipi?

    "By Way Of Deception Thou Shalt Do War." This is MOSSAD motto and they use it accordingly. With the backing of USA, Israelis have shown determination to go ahead with what they believe is their right to live in the occupied territories.The reason probably is because Israelis migrants have been welcomed to Israel and their number continue to surge as time goes on while they do not have enough land to accomodate them. Obvious the issue of land could be a hot debate for sometime because of that challenge.In the past, Israel had prevented Sadam from obtaining the nuclear technology supplied by France.I heard last year a Nuclear site in Syria was attacked secretly by their F16s jet fighters.I hope neither Iran nor Israel would choose the path for unnecessary nuclear controntation this time around.

    Hello X-Paster,according to my research an attach of Iran by Israel is not possible at this time.Time is not yet ripe.If it happens at all, it will be of a very limited scale.

    It will only happen at a time choosen by the Illuminati when they have created maximum chaos in the world.The chaos you are seeing now is only a tip in the iceberg.My research shows that they will arrange it so that an attach of Israel is done by Iran,China and Russia together.

    Hahaha, watu wanasahau Historia na hawajui kuwa historia ina kawaida ya kujirudia kwa njia nyingine. Nchi za kiarabu zimeshaonja sana joto ya jiwe ya Israel kuanzia Egypt mpaka Iraq.
