The IDF is preparing options for a strike at Iran

The IDF is drawing up options for a strike on Iranian nuclear facilities that do not include coordination with U.S.

While its preference is to coordinate with the US, defense officials have said Israel is preparing a wide range of options for such an operation.

“It is always better to coordinate,” one top Defense Ministry official explained last week. “But we are also preparing options that do not include coordination.”

Israeli officials have said it would be difficult, but not impossible, to launch a strike against Iran without receiving codes from the US Air Force, which controls Iraqi airspace. Israel also asked for the codes in 1991 during the First Gulf War, but the US refused.

This seems to be all misinformation as a certain military man can be quoted as saying Olmert won US backing for Iran war as of Tue, 25 Nov 2008 19:19:29 GMT . An earlier report by Time suggested that Washington had expressed its opposition to an Israeli military strike on Iran. However, the outgoing Israeli premier Olmert dismissed the Time report by saying. “I don’t remember that anyone in the administration, including in the last couple of days, advised me or any other of my official representatives not to take any action that we will deem necessary for the fundamental security of the state of Israel, and that includes Iran,”
Israeli Premier Ehud Olmert said “there has been no objection by the Bush administration to a military strike on Iran.”

Israel’s prime minister says Washington has not rejected a request by Tel Aviv to take any action it deems “necessary” against Iran.

Ehud Olmert, the outgoing premier, said Tuesday that he had extensively discussed Iran and its nuclear program with “Vice President Dick Cheney, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and the (US) president”.
“There is a basic, deep understanding about the Iranian threat and the need to act in order to remove the threat,” Olmert told reporters.

Israel insists that a nuclear Iran would pose an existential threat to Tel Aviv, claiming that Tehran has “plans to build a nuclear weapon.”

“There are a wide range of risks one takes when embarking on such an operation,” a top Israeli official said.

Several news reports have claimed recently that US President George W. Bush has refused to give Israel a green light for an attack on Iranian facilities. One such report, published in September in Britain’s Guardian newspaper, claimed that Prime Minister Ehud Olmert requested a green light to attack Iran in May but was refused by Bush.

In September, a Defense News article on an early warning radar system the US recently sent to Israel quoted a US government source who said the X-band deployment and other bilateral alliance-bolstering activities send parallel messages: “First, we want to put Iran on notice that we’re bolstering our capabilities throughout the region, and especially in Israel. But just as important, we’re telling the Israelis, ‘Calm down, behave. We’re doing all we can to stand by your side and strengthen defenses, because at this time, we don’t want you rushing into the military option.'”

The “US European Command (EUCOM) has deployed to Israel a high-powered X-band radar and the supporting people and equipment needed for coordinated defense against Iranian missile attack, marking the first permanent US military presence on Israeli soil,” Defense News wrote. The radar will shave several precious minutes off Israel’s reaction time to an Iranian missile launch.

In a related article at about the same time, TIME magazine raised the possibility that through the deployment of the radar, America wants to keep an eye on Israeli airspace, so that the US is not surprised if and when the IAF is sent to bomb Iran, a scenario Washington wants to avoid.

The US army sent 120 EUCOM personnel to Israel’s Nevatim Air Base southeast of Beersheba to man the new radar.

Last week, Iran’s nuclear chief Gholam Reza Aghazadeh revealed that the country was operating more than 5,000 centrifuges at its uranium enrichment plant in Natanz and would continue to install centrifuges and enrich uranium to produce nuclear fuel for the country’s future nuclear power plants.

“At this point, more than 5,000 centrifuges are operating in Natanz,” said Aghazadeh, who is also the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran. This represents a significant increase from the 4,000 Iran had said were up and running in August at the plant.

The IAF was preparing for a wide range of options, OC Air Force Maj.-Gen. Ido Nehushtan recently said, adding that all it would take to launch an operation was a decision by the political echelon.

“The air force is a very robust and flexible force,” he told Der Spiegel. “We are ready to do whatever is demanded of us.”

On Monday, Teheran dismissed the possibility of an Israeli strike, saying it didn’t take Israel seriously.

But in any case Iran deploying 60-ship. Iranian sources report that this is part of Tehran’s preparations for a US and/or Israeli attack on its nuclear installations and Revolutionary Guards bases which its political, military and intelligence strategists are convinced is on the way ahead of Barak Obama’s January 21 inauguration as US president. A senior Iranian official said that Obama’s decision to retain Robert Gates at the Pentagon was taken in Tehran as further confirmation of the coming attack.

Tuesday, Chairman of Iran’s Expediency Council Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani called the United States “the main enemy of the Islamic Republic of Iran.” He was speaking on the thirtieth anniversary of Iran’s post-revolutionary parliament (Majlis).

Preparations are almost completed with Three US aircraft carriers with strike groups, task forces and nuclear submarines have piled up in the waters of the Arabian Sea in the Persian Gulf.The US began massing this formidable array of floating firepower at the outset of the Islamist terrorist attack on the Indian city of Mumbai last Wednesday, Nov. 26.
Tehran responded typically with a threat of retaliation should the Americans decide to use the Mumbai terrorist attack to hit Iran.

Now deployed are:

1. the USS John C. Stennis, which carries 80 fighter-bombers and 3,200 sailors and airmen and leads a strike group..

This carrier joins two already there, the USS Theodore Roosevelt, which patrols the northern Arabian Sea, part of whose strike group cruises opposite Iran’s southern coast; and the USS Iwo Jima, which carries a large marine contingent on board.

2. New to these waters, according to DEBKAfile’s military sources, is the Destroyer Squadron 50/CTF 55, which has two task forces: Patrol Forces Southwest Asia (PATFORSWA) for strikes against warships and the rapid deployment of marines to flashpoint arenas; and Mine Countermeasures Division 31, which stands ready to prevent New Delhi or Islamabad from mining the Arabian Sea routes connecting their ports. Those routes are vital waterways for US marine traffic supporting the war in Afghanistan.

3. To manage this armada, the command and control vessel, USS Mount Whitney, has been brought over from the Mediterranean.

4. Four nuclear submarines.

And there is the Military Mobilization call ups

Some sources say the coming new moon is the opportune time for this action

According to the Prophets :

The prophet Micah explains these times in this way:

” I will surely assemble Yaakov, all of you. I will surely gather the remnant of Israel. Together I will make them as sheep in a flock of Bozrah within its stall, they shall stir with people. The breaker has gone up before them, they broke and passed through the gate and went out through it. The king passed before them and YHVH was at their head “.  (2:12-13)

The Radak says this means: I will not be wroth with you forever, but in the end of days I will assemble the entire house of Yaakov from the place of their exile. Elijah will come prior to the redemption. He is the ” breaker ” spoken of here. He will beak the thorns and thistles to straighten the way, says Metsudat David.

Isaiah Says :

” Who is this that comes from Edom with dyed garments of Bazrah ” (34:6).

The Zohar says concerning this verse that it describes what is equivalent to the killing of the first born in Egypt.  God will come from Bozrah. Just like the world’s hosts went to war against Yerushalym from Bozrah (1st Temple). The children of Edom threw down the walls of the (2nd) Temple. Hashem will put on robes of Vengeance to punish Edom. The mountains will be filled with the dead of the nations. 1 In Pesicta, Rabbi Brachyah tells us this verse refers to the fate of Edom’s heavenly counterpart, God will one day put on garments of vengeance to chastise Edom for having destroyed his house and burnt his temple and driven the community of Israel into the exile of the nations. Beasts shall feed on the bodies of the slain of the nations on the mountains of Israel for twelve months, and the birds shall feed for seven years.2

This seems to be what is referred by the prophet Ezekiel who states:

” It shall come to pass in that day that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of passengers on the east of the sea and it shall stop the nose of the passengers, and there they shall bury Gog and his multitude, and they shall call it the valley of the multitude of Gog “.  (39:11)

” The house of Israel will be burying them for seven months to cleanse the land “.  (4:12)

It appears that Israel will need to protect itself by premptive strike. Sooner or later, the alliances of Russia and several Mideast neighbors will turn toward Israel.
Israel will eventually have their faith in a Messiah, the Messiah, be challenged.
I pray all are at peace with God prior to the attack on Israel and the last chapter of the society we know now.
