Haaretz: Netanyahu's Iran Dilemma: Getting Trump to Act Without Putting Israel on the Front Line



Amid intensive efforts to form a new government and maneuvers meant to extricate Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from the indictments piling up against him, the existing government in Israel is dealing with another important issue – developments in the Gulf.

The “existing government” essentially means one man, Netanyahu himself. Until Avigdor Lieberman accepts the offer to join a new Netanyahu government, the prime minister is also the defense minister. The security cabinet too is a dead horse. Since the April 9 election, Netanyahu has convened it only once, on May 5, for a strictly pro-forma discussion on the escalation in the Gaza Strip. Two members of the security cabinet (ministers Naftali Bennett and Ayelet Shaked) didn’t even manage to get reelected, and other ministers are still waiting for their positions in the new government.

The debate on Israeli policy regarding the threats exchanged between America and Iran is taking place solely between the prime minister’s ears, albeit with advice from senior defense officials.

Netanyahu has one key advantage that he lacked during the years of the Obama administration – close coordination with U.S. President Donald Trump. But even Netanyahu is having trouble assessing Trump’s real intentions.... https://www.haaretz.com/us-news/.premium-netanyahu-s-iran-dilemma-how-to-get-trump-to-act-without-being-on-front-line-1.7269100

Talk about meddling in other nations politics! But it's Israel so not a problem.


"Bone Spurs - LOL can you believe I got out of that one? Suckers. Combat is for Riff-Raff" -Donald Trump to Bibi

Kids: Don't fall for this bullshit war. Be like Trump and find a Bone Spur in your foot. You can then worry about STD's. If you fight them, you can be a Combat Vet anyway- just like Trump.

August 18, 2002: Israel To U.S.: Don't Delay Iraq Attack

BY DAN COLLINS

AUGUST 18, 2002 / 2:47 PM / CBS

Israel is urging U.S. officials not to delay a military strike against Iraq's Saddam Hussein, an aide to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon said Friday.
Israeli intelligence officials have gathered evidence that Iraq is speeding up efforts to produce biological and chemical weapons, said Sharon aide Ranaan Gissin.


"Any postponement of an attack on Iraq at this stage will serve no purpose," Gissin said. "It will only give him (Saddam) more of an opportunity to accelerate his program of weapons of mass destruction."

The United States has been considering a military campaign against Iraq to remove Saddam from power, listing him as one of the world's main terrorist regimes. However, there is considerable world opposition to a U.S. strike.
