Accused of war crimes by the Goldstone report, thrown out of NATO exercise, and under heavy pressure from Tony Blair and the Quartet. The likelihood of an Israeli strike to destroy the Iranian nuclear bomb is fading.
The Netanyahu government is moving slow, and its effectiveness has come to an halt. The UN Human Rights Council’s allegation of Israeli war crimes in Gaza, played into the hands of a coalition formed to strip the Israeli military of legitimacy. It blocks the possibility of a defensive strike against Iran’s fast-moving nuclear weapons program.
Israel’s army chiefs now face the problem of sending troops to defend their country knowing that some international body may accuse them of war crimes.
Their government had seven months to compile a counter-dossier of recorded Palestinian crimes in ten years of murderous campaigns against Israeli civilians, men, women and children.

The enemies of Israel has taken a sudden 0-2 lead. Both Turkey`s effective boycott of Israel participation in a NATO-drill, and the endorsement of the Goldman report has lowered the moral in the IDF.
Israel is technically capable to strike Iran without the help of the USA. But if such a strike will lead to politically, diplomatic, economicaly and even military attacks on the Jewish state, the present Government might be forced to abstain from such an attack.
When Iran tests its first nuclear bomb, the game in the Middle East again changes. Europe and the US think they will be able to play the game, and win. They are wrong. You can not play around with suicide bombers, and people who murder in the name of Allah. A nuclear armed Iran will only be the end of he beginning of the Global Intifada. The reign of Islamic terror will bring to an end all kinds of humanistic and democratic based rules of International affairs.
From that day it will only be: «Give us peace at any cost». On the political alter of the false peace, the Zionistic state of Israel will be offered.
