And P.S. – as an example of how ridiculous Western mass media coverage of Israel is, Jodi Rudoren, the new New York Times correspondent, refers to Barak’s “hard-line position about all options—including an independent Israeli attack—remaining on the table.” That’s precisely the same policy as another Barack the New York Times would never refer to as hardline on anything, Barack Obama. The idea that keeping all options open is hardly hardline, a word that the newspaper doesn’t apply to people who advocate war and genocide against Israel.

One Response to “Rubin Reports: Now Anyone Can Understand That Israel Isn’t About to Attack Iran”

  1. "…is it necessary at present? Would there be the minimal international support needed? Would it make things better and genuinely make an Iranian nuclear attack on Israel less likely? On all those points the answer is either a clear “no” or too close to say “yes” with any degree of confidence."

    This is the key point… I think your analysis is spot on. I have said to my friends that if Israel does anything against Iran, it won't be a direct strike anyway. You would need the power of a US aircraft carrier over a sustained period of time for it to be effective anyway. Not impossible, but not very practical for Israel. It wouldn't be a strike, it would be going to war.

    I just wish that the US had a foreign policy that actually rewarded countries for acting in our interests as opposed to punishing them.
