Israel Budgets Billions for Plan to Attack Iran

Israel believes agreement reached on Iran’s nuclear program presents an existential threat.

Despite what is characterized as substantive progress in talks between Iran, the United States, and the European Union on Iran’s nuclear program, the state of Israel has announced it is allocating in excess of 10 billion shekels for war preparations.

The Israeli newspaper Haaretz cites three members of the Knesset, Israel’s parliament, who say between 10 and 12 billion shekels, or between $2.89 and $3.47 billion, has been set aside for the attack on Iran. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon ordered the Israeli military to prepare for the attack, the newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Some members of the Knesset question whether the allocation has to do with progress between Iran and six Western nations and an agreement reached last November. The IDF said it had “received a clear directive from government officials from the political echelon – meaning Netanyahu and Ya’alon – to continue readying for a possible independent strike by Israel on the Iranian nuclear sites, regardless of the talks now happening between Iran and the West,” according to the three Knesset members.

Rhetoric from the Netanyahu government has escalated as talks on the Iranian program near a final accord. During the AIPAC conference in the United States earlier this month, Netanyahu said Israel is prepared to strike Iran’s nuclear enrichment facilities. “My friends, I believe that letting Iran enrich uranium would open up the floodgates,” he said. “That must not happen. And we will make sure it does not happen.”

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said during a speech recently that Israel reserves the right to strike Iran and may do so if an accord is reached.

“We think that the United States should be the one leading the campaign against Iran. But the U.S. has entered talks with them and unfortunately, in the haggling in the Persian bazaar, the Iranians were better,” Ya’alon said. “Therefore, on this matter, we have to behave as though we have nobody to look out for us but ourselves.”

    Why don’t Israel get rid of its own nuclear weapon before asking Iran to do so !!!!!!

    If you speak with the language of power, then if Israel has nuclear weapon, then Iran is not a fool to get rid of its own…

    if you speak fair, no nuclear weapon for all middle East, then no for all, including Israel, and Israel shouldn’t be an exception. If Israel is keeping its nuclear weapons for self defence, then Iran has the right too to keep theirs and the loop will never end. War will never bring peace to Israel, because obviously Israel is fighting all the Muslim world. Building a state based on religion taking the land of a muslim Country (Palestine) will never bring peace to anyone. As we say.. religion is for God, Land is for everyone (living in it; i.e.: its citizens). seizing land, depriving people of their homes by force to build a state based on religion, and give it legacy and legitimacy by UN VETOS only brings more hatred/prejudice/discrimination…whatever you might call it… and remember…power doesn’t last. Watch history.
