Israel Knesset Member Declares "We Are Preparing For War"

Tyler Durden's picture

In an interview by Likud Knesset Member Danny Danon, speaking with WND senior reporter Aaron Klein, who hosts an investigative program on New York's WABC 770 AM Radio, the Israeli said that "Israel is preparing for a time of war...We are ready for all scenarios, and we are able to defend our civilian population. I cannot tell you how long we can wait more. But we prefer to wait and see if the international bodies are acting, or [whether] it will be only the burden of Israel, like it was in the early '80s, when the great leader, Menachem Begin, [made] the great decision to bomb the nuclear reactor in Iraq." He concluded: "We don't want this to be a war of Jews against Muslims. It should be a war of Western civilization [against] Iran." Good luck explaining that to 1.5 billion Muslims around the world.

From 77WABC Radio, specifically WND's Jerusalem Bureau:

While Israel is hoping for a peaceful resolution to Iran's nuclear ambitions, the Jewish state is also preparing for "a time of war," declared a Knesset member of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's ruling Likud party.

"We are prepared for all risks," said Likud Knesset Member Danny Danon. "And I think our enemies should know that even though we are speaking of peace, we are getting ready for a time of war, as well."

Danon, the deputy speaker of Israel's parliament, was speaking in a radio interview with WND senior reporter Aaron Klein, who hosts an investigative program on New York's WABC 770 AM Radio.

Danon hinted that Israel may take action if the world does not stop the Iranian nuclear threat, recalling Israel's lone strike on Iraq's nuclear reactor in 1981.

Stated Danon: "We are ready for all scenarios, and we are able to defend our civilian population. I cannot tell you how long we can wait more. But we prefer to wait and see if the international bodies are acting, or [whether] it will be only the burden of Israel, like it was in the early '80s, when the great leader, Menachem Begin, [made] the great decision to bomb the nuclear reactor in Iraq."

Despite his assertion that Jerusalem is preparing to act alone, Danon stressed that Iran is an international concern. He called on the Western world to "take action" against Iran's suspected illicit nuclear program.

"I think we have to take action," he said. "It's about time to take action. It should be the international world and not only Israel. And I expect the administration in the White House to wake up as soon as possible."

Danon said he is concerned the international community has not been forceful enough in its policies toward Iran.

"What we see today is that the Russians, the Americans, the Europeans all say they are worried about Iran becoming nuclear, but in fact Iran is working full ahead, and it's only a matter of months or a year before they will be reaching the point of no return," he said.

Danon stated that any future military confrontation against Iran "should be an international effort."

"We don't want this to be a war of Jews against Muslims. It should be a war of Western civilization [against] Iran," he said.

"The threat of Iran becoming nuclear is a threat for the people who live in the U.S., Europe and Israel." he said. "No one can guarantee that Iran will use its power only against Israel."

And with that, we look forward to another stock meltup tomorrow.

Obama will wait until the first nuclear bomb explodes in New York.

After that, he'll decided that every America should excuse them self to Iran and offer 60square miles at the centre of Washington for Iranians to build a peaceful army base to show they mean well.

And as a second peace offering he will allow all Iranian men in America the option of first choice of American woman.

Shame on the West of playing the victim! BOW TO THE ISLAM! BOMD ALL CHRISTIAN CHURCHES! RAPE ALL CHRISTIAN WOMAN!

Good luck explaining it to all the hair-shirted "pacifists" who believe in peace in our time, peace with honor.  Mr. Achmadinejad's sense of reason can be appealed to, and surely there are moderates in his regime.  I am sure they just want electrical power generation.  Pay no heed to their constant threats or their ballistic missile program.  Or their low-level proxy war against Israel via Hezbollah.  Or that Mr. Achmadinejad talks about the apocalypse the way geeks talk about the latest product from Apple...

are you going to sign up for this war bearster since you feel so strongly about it? They could put you on the front line and you can post a comment from one of those ditches the Iranians dug a few weeks ago.

Ahmadinejad has no Jewish roots

Rumours that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's family converted to Islam from Judaism are false. In fact, they are proud Shias

But you didn't link to a random UK newspaper. You linked to a Guardian article which does a pretty good job of disputing the Telegraph article I referenced.

Both articles would seem to have their merits and I could not say with confidence that one or the other can be called definitive. I thank you for sharing the information.

I think ol' Crockett may have really just been making the suggestion that there is a reason for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's big nose.  "Disingenuous at best," isn't that one of your lines, Crockett?

What does disingenuousness have to do with it?

Village Idiot's picture

I re-read the thread - you are right.  You were just pointing out a reason for the man having a big nose.  Question:  Why bother getting mixed up with a "nose" issue, Crockett?

CrockettAlmanac.com's picture

My priorities begin with "anything for a laugh." Of course, I say that as an American of German Irish descent with a well proportioned proboscis.

Now listen to me, you smooth-talking son-of-a-bitch! Let me lay it on the line for you and your boss, whoever he is. Johnny Fontane will never get that movie! I don't care how many daigo guinea WOP greaseball gumbahs come out of the woodwork!

Well let me tell you something my Kraut Mick friend, I'm gonna make so much trouble for

you, you won't know what hit you!

quintago's picture

yeah having a big nose has nothing to do with the persian empire being over-run by Muslims and their big noses. Perhaps they were over-run by the jews before that in a 300 type of takeover.

dkny's picture

Both articles would seem to have their merits and I could not say with confidence that one or the other can be called definitive.

Yes, but apparently once suspected for being a Jew there is no way back.
Kinda like being labeled a Communist by McCarthy, isn't it?

CrockettAlmanac.com's picture

Why do you believe that such a conclusion is apparent?

RichyRoo's picture

Because the first article make a lot of claims which the second article demolishes. Hence the first article is worthless, and yet someone claims they 'both have merit'. No they dont, the first makes claims which the second effectively refutes, leaving us back where we started, with no reason to belive he is Jewish.

CrockettAlmanac.com's picture

If nothing else, the first article tells us that Imadinnerjacket's family made some change in their identity which is interesting in and of itself and therefore has merit. Did you know this before you read the article? If you fear Imadinnerjacket don't you want as much background as possible on him?

Also, can you prove that everything in the first article is false and everything in the second is true? Just because one attempts to refute an argument does not mean that one has refuted an argument. If you really believe that than this refutation of your argument by me proves that you are wrong and without merit.

dkny's picture

Like I said: once suspected as a Jew, there is practically no way to remove the suspicion.
Alas, who am I kidding? You're the guy who believes that the Wehrmacht was packed full of pure, practicing Jews.

CrockettAlmanac.com's picture

But you know for a fact that 150,000 jews and half-jews did serve in Hitler's army. Why do you so despise the truth?

dkny's picture

And how many full/half/etc Italian and Germans served in the US Armed forces in WW2, conspiracy boy?

CrockettAlmanac.com's picture

What makes you think there is a conspiracy? It's just a historic fact. Why does this fact make you so angry?

dkny's picture

Amazing how you avoid commenting on the makeup of the US Armed forces in WW2. Keep up the charade that you're merely stating facts without any opinion behind them.

CrockettAlmanac.com's picture

What's so amazing? Lots of German American and Italian Americans and Japanese Americans served in the US armed forces in WWII. It's a fact. Would you like confirmation that that water is wet, too?

Why does the fact that 150,000 jews and half jews served in Hitler's army enrage you to so much?

dkny's picture

LOL @ "enrage".

Then I suppose that your brain is as devoid of opinion when you state that fact, just as when you state that water is wet. Or are you merely in the habit of dropping "facts" out of nowhere in certain kind of discussions and that one just happened to be next on the list, as opposed to, for example, "the sky is blue"?

Like I said: keep up the charade.

Please consider going back on your medication.

LOL @ you classic avoidance tactic.

I can't wait for your next context-free "fact" spewing session.

The context will be there for those wise enough to see it.

More empty words from the world greatest fact book.

Can't wait for the next time you turn tail when I push you about your "facts".

How about Pakistan? They already have the bomb. Want war also there? Why only Iran? Why not, for example, North Korea? Ah, forgot...neither Pakistan nor North Korea have OIL!!!

rawsienna's picture

Perhaps because Pakistan has not threatened to wipe another country off the face of the earth.  North Korea - well they may be isolated and impoverished but they are controlled by China .  

AnonymousAnarchist's picture

Neither has Iran. Do you believe all nonsense spewed by the statist media? Let me guess... you also think the war in Iraq is over.

Agreed, or that Iraq had WMD to start with... (maybe he was that sure because he saw Hallyburton's delivery bills?)

If you remember, we used to talk a lot of smack to the Soviet Union, and they'd reply likewise, back in the day.  Besides, Israel already has 200 nukes.
