Israel cannot allow Iran to have a nuclear weapon. It is really just that simple. The truth is that Iran funds and sponsors major terrorist organizations such as Hezbollah which are fanatically committed to the complete annihilation of the state of Israel. Iran has not been shy about arming Hezbollah with extremely advanced weaponry with which to conduct its campaign of terrorism against Israel, and there is little doubt that once Iran develops nuclear bombs that they would give them to Hezbollah or to some other terrorist group dedicated to destroying the nation of Israel.
You see, Iran itself is absolutely committed to wiping the nation of Israel off the map. No amount of diplomacy or negotiation is going to change that fact.
If you do not believe this, the following quotes from Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad about the state of Israel should prove very revealing.....
"Anybody who recognizes Israel will burn in the fire of the Islamic nation's fury."
"Remove Israel before it is too late and save yourself from the fury of regional nations."
"The skirmishes in the occupied land are part of a war of destiny. The outcome of hundreds of years of war will be defined in Palestinian land. As the Imam said, Israel must be wiped off the map."
"Israel is a tyrannical regime that will one day will be destroyed."
"Israel is a rotten, dried tree that will be annihilated in one storm."
There is no doubt about how the president of Iran feels, and the truth is that his views are representative of the Islamic fanatics that run Iran.
They are obsessed with the destruction of Israel as a nation.
So when they develop nuclear weapons will they immediately launch them at Israel?
No, of course not.
You see, Iran is fighting its war against Israel through proxies.
The primary proxy that Iran uses is Hezbollah.
Iran arms, funds and helps train Hezbollah and then gets Hezbollah to do the dirty work while they sit back in safety.
When Hezbollah launches rockets at Israel, does the world blame Iran?
Of course not. But they should.
What if those Hezbollah rockets were one day armed with nuclear warheads?
Or, what if Hezbollah agents started smuggling suitcase nukes into Israeli cities?
If a nuke suddenly went off in an Israeli city how could Israel hold Iran directly responsible.
They may not know who is responsible.
It would be a complete and total nightmare.
This is why Israel cannot let the nuclear genie out of the bottle in Iran.
It would inevitably lead to nuclear terrorism inside the state of Israel.
But Iran is now getting very close to developing a nuclear bomb.
Senior officials at the IAEA have concluded in a confidential analysis that that nation of Iran has now acquired "sufficient information to be able to design and produce a workable" nuclear weapon.
The U.N. nuclear agency’s report presents evidence that Iran has done extensive research and testing on how to fashion the components of a nuclear weapon.
It is the open secret that nobody has wanted to talk about.
Iran wants the bomb and they are working feverishly to get it.
In fact, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has handed the Kremlin a list of Russian scientists that he believes are helping Iran to develop a nuclear weapon.
Israel knows what is going on.
It is almost like Iran and Israel are playing some bizarre game of chicken and trying to see who will blink first.
Iran shows no signs of ending its pursuit of nuclear weapons.
Israel has repeatedly said that it will not allow Iran to have nuclear weapons.
A military strike by Israel on Iran's nuclear facilities appears to be inevitable.
Time is quickly running out, and each day it becomes clearer that the end result of all of this is going to be war.
