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.

The full interview can be heard after the jump.

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...

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.

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.

Iran never threatened to wipe out Israel. That was a hyped up mistranslation by the warhawk media. And yes, it's all about the oil and natural gas. Iran has the second largest natural gas reserves in the world and the third largest easily accessible oil reserves. Oh, and high oil prices would cause the dollar to rally, as petroleum is mostly traded in dollars, AKA the petrodollar.

Mon, 08/23/2010 - 02:27 | 537079 CrockettAlmanac.com
CrockettAlmanac.com's picture

Actually the mistranslation was originally made by an Iranian translator who mistook the Iranian phrase "The Zionist regime will be wiped from the page of history," (simply meaning regime change) for the idiomatic English expression "wiped off the map," or "wiped of the face of the earth."

Western media has repeated the mistake without bothering to correct the translation.

Mon, 08/23/2010 - 02:59 | 537097 RichardP
RichardP's picture

Wouldn't wiped from the page of history imply that it will be as if they never existed?  How would one bring about such a state through regime change?  New regime is in power, but the old regime is still there, giving interviews to the news media.  Such a situation (giving interviews to the news media) hardly brings to mind a state of being as if they never existed.

Mon, 08/23/2010 - 03:27 | 537115 CrockettAlmanac.com
CrockettAlmanac.com's picture

That's the thing about idiomatic speech -- it doesn't literally mean what it says. Does "wiped off the map" mean to totally destroy or to literally wipe off a map? Does "removed from the page of history" mean to stop the progress of a particular policy or to literally remove pages from a history book?

We understand common idioms in our own language but translations can be messy. Thus the translatin error.

Mon, 08/23/2010 - 03:39 | 537128 RichardP
RichardP's picture

I'll go with the translation given below: "vanish from the page of time". That more closely approximates "cease to exist". A regime can cease to exist, even though it's leaders are still giving interviews to the media.

The full quote translated directly to English:

"The Imam said this regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time."

Word by word translation:

Imam (Khomeini) ghoft (said) een (this) rezhim-e (regime) ishghalgar-e (occupying) qods (Jerusalem) bayad (must) az safheh-ye ruzgar (from page of time) mahv shavad (vanish from).

The fact that a 30-year-old, mis-translated Khomenei quote is constantly cited when one points out the fact that Iran has not threatened aggression against any other country (although, like all governments, their citizens would be better off without them), shows that not only is the argument weak, it's non-existent.

The only reason iran is making a nuclear bomb is to balance the power with Israel. Isreal has currently 500 nuclear bombs, iran has none.

If someone wants to make a nuclear terrorist attack to israel, us , europe  they can do it  without iranian, pakistani or NK's help. Russians sell very small size nuclear bombs in the black market which one can carry in a bag. Any terrorist organization can reach these sources and buy it.

All wars in the middle east are for oil only.

You mean besides them being officially at war? Of course ignoring the huge build up of Iranian supplied Hezbollah arms aimed at Israel from Lebanon. Not to mention the flotilla provocation. Yes besides all that, and the ambush on the Israeli's clearing a tree in the neutral zone, there is no "war" going on.

When did the zionists become part of "western civilization"? It is unfortunate that the jewish people have to be used as a pawn in a war of stupidity. Israel, if you want to bomb Iran- you're choice, but I would do everything possible to isolate you and make you pay any price for your actions. 

The US should not lift one finger, financial or otherwise, to help the Israelis. I am not a "hairshirted pacifist", nor am I an ignorant militarist who defines peace as the destruction of another people. The US government has declared this plant to be acceptable and for peaceful electric generation. This knisset member is a tool and deserves whatever apocalypse he creates.

The 2012 phenomenon comprises a range of eschatological beliefs that cataclysmic or transformative events will occur on December 21, 2012,[1][2][3] which is said to be the end-date of a 5,125-year-long cycle in the Mayan Long Count calendar. Various astronomical alignments and numerological formulae related to this date have been proposed, but none have been accepted by mainstream scholarship.

The Globalists want Iran gone. Iranian oil rightfully belongs to the British Royals and all their Hoity-Toity

pals. Iranian contracts with China, Russia, and the rest goes against commonly accepted, approved business practices. That is to say it is an impediment to the monopolist agenda. War could also provide great cover in the event of the Big Crash. The IDF is just something to be used like the U.S. military to further the goals of the ruling oligarchy; another clone army. This has little to nothing to do with some future potential nuclear threat from Iran. Interestingly Israeli agents have been all over Patagonia in recent years scoping the place out. Are they are considering a relocation?

    ... scientists are able to read Jewish genomes like a history book. The latest DNA volume weighs in on the controversial, centuries-old claim that European Jews are all the descendants of Khazars, a Turkic group of the north Caucasus who converted to Judaism in the late eighth and early ninth century. The DNA has spoken: no.

http://www.newsweek.com/2010/06/03/the-dna-of-abraham-s-children.html

Note the date is June of 2010 for the article.

There is more interesting information here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ashkenazi

    ... a 2006 study by Behar et al., based on high-resolution analysis of haplogroup K(mtDNA), suggested that about 40% of the current Ashkenazi population is descended matrilineally from just four women, or "founder lineages", that were "likely from a Hebrew/Levantine mtDNA pool" originating in the Middle East in the 1st and 2nd centuries CE.

Forty percent. So, a minority of Ashkenazis can claim that a long time ago their ancestors lived in Palestine. Interesting.

Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion said that the Palestinians are descendants of the Biblical Jews. The DNA evidence appears to confirm his belief:

One DNA study by geneticist Ariella Oppenheim concluded that genetic evidence coincides with historical accounts that at least part of the Arab Israeli and Palestinian population is mainly descended from local Christians and Jews "who had converted [to Islam] after the Islamic conquest in the seventh century A.D."[112][113][114] These Christian and Jewish converts are believed to be descended from a "core population that had lived in the area for several centuries, some even since prehistorical times."[115] The study also discovered significant genetic mixing between these converts and incoming Arab tribes during the first millennium A.D., as well as parallel genetic mixing of the Jewish population with the local peoples throughout the Jewish diaspora.[112]

Forty percent of Ashkenazis can trace their ancestry to 4 women.  The other 60 percent trace their ancestry to a wider group of women.  Your response suggest that you didn't read the articles.  And the subject is whether Ashkenazis are the direct descendants of the Khazars.

My quote was sufficient to make my point.  You made a totally different point.  I think you wouldn't have made that different point if you had read the article.  But I get your point about not reading all links.  I don't either.

There is a consistant claim on this blog that the Ashkenazi (European) Jews are not Biblical Jews but are the descendants of the Khazars, a Turkic group of the north Caucasus who converted to Judaism in the late eighth and early ninth century.  If 40% of Ashkenazi Jews can be linked to just 4 women in the Middle Eastern jewish community, that fact by itself negates the claim that all Ashkenazi Jews are the descendants of the Khazars.  That was my point, and my quote supported it.

Couldn't they be descendants of both? Also, couldn't these middle eastern ancestors have been Semites other than Jews? Arabs are also Semitic and have lived closer to historic Khazar territory and in greater numbers.

And what of the claim that the Palestinians are descendants of Biblical Jews and Christians? It seems logical and the DNA evidence appears to support the premise. Seems to me that the Palestinians are as much, if not more, the Children of Abraham as compared to the Ashkenazis.

Zionism is opposed to Jewish Law.

The Talmud in Tractate Kesubos (p. 111a), teaches that Jews shall not use human force to bring about the establishment of a Jewish state before the coming of the universally accepted Moshiach (Messiah from the House of David). Furthermore it states that the Jewish people are forbidden to rebel against the nations and that they should remain loyal citizens and not attempt to leave the exile which G-d sent them into, ahead of time.

Don't get me wrong, Ahmadinejad is a statist nutjob (although he is an amateur compared to Bush, Obama, Bibi, etc. in using the apparatus of the state to murder) but the extreme weakness of the arguments used to make Iran appear dangerous is how you know they aren't (at least relatively compared to other states).

"Vigilant and just human beings will not blame the Jews for the crimes committed by the fake Zionist regime and its supporters in the occupied territories, including genocide of defenseless and oppressed women and children...." The solution to the conflict in the Holy Land is "a free referendum to establish a government based on the will of the Palestinian nation in which all Palestinians, including Jews, Christians and Muslims will be given the chance to vote." - Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
