Publicly, J Street repeatedly states that Halutz is against the drawing of "red lines," that is, the line in the sand beyond which military action against Iran must be taken. There are commentators who crow that Halutz's opposition to red lines reveals a reluctance to use force against Iran, and that it is an explicit criticism of the Israeli prime minister. J Street President Jeremy Ben-Ami wrote: "Gen. Halutz has repeatedly said that … there is nothing to be gained from the public calls for deadlines and red lines." But Halutz, who is definitely against red lines, doesn't like them because he thinks they interfere with effective military strategies. Halutz says that Israel may even have to “go it alone.”

The general secretary of Switzerland’s Jewish community has reprimanded the Swiss government for failing to enact sanctions against Iran, despite full implementation by the EU and US.

Iran's Supreme Leader has issued a fatwa declaring nuclear weapons "haram" (prohibited in Islam). Tariq Alhomayed is horrified that the US will buy this as a real guarantee.

As unbelievable as it may seem, according to the dismayed Tariq Alhomayed, it appears, "based on the recent statement issued by US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton," that the Administration actually believes "that there are signals from Tehran that the Iranians are prepared to bring positive ideas to the table regarding their nuclear program," and those signals are "an Iranian fatwa prohibiting the country from possessing nuclear weapons."

In their book "Nuclear Fatwa: Religion and Politics in Iran's Proliferation Strategy," published September 2011 by the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (a think tank often described as being pro-Israel), Michael Eisenstadt and Mehdi Khalaji discuss the vital role religion plays in every aspect of Iranian politics, and the realistic prospects that a fatwa might influence nuclear policy.
