Israel Puts Global Facilities On High Alert Following Warning Of Rising Iran Strike Threat

Tyler Durden's picture

While the world rejoices in the aftermath of the enjoyable diversion in which a fake market surges on fake, politically-motivated data, which incidentally refutes the warning voiced last week by the Fed Chairman who has a far better grasp of the economy than the BLS, warned last week, the confluence of real events continues to indicate that something is brewing in the middle east. Only this time it is not the US adding another aircraft carrier to the three already situated by the Straits of Hormuz. This time the smoke and fire come from Israel. ABC reports that "Israeli facilities in North America -- and around the world -- are on high alert, according to an internal security document obtained by ABC News that predicted the threat from Iran against Jewish targets will increase. "We predict that the threat on our sites around the world will increase … on both our guarded sites and 'soft' sites," stated a letter circulated by the head of security for the Consul General for the Mid-Atlantic States. Guarded sites refers to government facilities like embassies and consulates, while 'soft sites' means Jewish synagogues, and schools, as well as community centers like the one hit by a terrorist bombing in Buenos Aires in 1994 that killed 85 people." Hopefully the head of security's prediction track record is better than that of the CBO, and that the very act of prediction does not in effect "make it so." At least courtesy of this latest escalation by Israel we get a clue of what to focus on, if not so much who the actual aggressors will be. In the meantime, Iran, which has been dealing with hyperinflation for weeks now, and likely has bigger problems to worry about than focusing on "soft sites" will naturally sense this escalation as the provocation it may well be meant to be, respond in kind, which will lead to further responses of definite attacks imminent by Iran's adversaries, and so on, and so forth, until finally the dam wall finally cracks.

Regarding who may be attacked, ABC had this to say:

The head of Shin Bet, Israel's internal security service, told an audience at a closed forum in Tel Aviv recently that Iran is trying to hit Israeli targets because of what it believes are Israeli attacks on it nuclear scientists. Yoram Cohen said that Iran's Revolutionary Guard, the same militant wing of the government linked to the recent alleged plot against the Saudi ambassador to the U.S., is working tirelessly to attack Israeli and Jewish targets abroad in order to deter Israel.

And just how is attacking Jewish targets abroad detering Israel? Oh wait, the assumption is that Iran is completely irrational and willing to provoke anyone for the sake of converting itself into one big lake of glass. Or so the public should believe. Got it.

Naturally, the 'response' is already in play.

Local and regional law enforcement and intelligence officials in U.S. and Canadian cities, including New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Toronto have been monitoring the situation closely for several weeks, and have stepped up patrols at Israeli government locations and Jewish cultural and religious institutions. They have issued awareness bulletins reminding officers to stay vigilant.


Federal officials in those cities told ABC News that they have also increased their efforts to watch for any threat stream pointing to an imminent attack on either Israeli facilities, Jewish cultural or religious institutions or other "soft targets."


"When there is posturing like this, we always pay extra attention to any threat streams," one federal official said.


"The thwarted assassination plot of a Saudi official in Washington, D.C., a couple of months ago was an important data point," added the official, "in that it showed at least parts of the Iranian establishment were aware of the intended event and were not concerned about inevitable collateral damage to U.S. citizens had they carried out an assassination plot on American soil."


"That was an eye opener, showing that they did not care about any collateral damage," the federal official said.


After the disruption of the alleged plot, regional intelligence centers issued bulletins similar to the recent Israeli warning.

Here is what has to be accepted as fact for the narrative to work:

"In the past few weeks, there has been an escalation in threats against Israeli and Jewish targets around the world," one regional document noted. "Open source has reported many demonstrations against Israel are expected to be concentrated on Israeli embassies and consulates. Such demonstrations have occurred internationally as well as domestically. These demonstrations could potentially turn violent at local synagogues, restaurants, the Israeli Embassy and other Israeli sites. … Law enforcement should be vigilant when making periodic checks at all Jewish facilities.

Once that is engrained in the public conscience, the letter's climax become a foregone conclusion:

"In conclusion, we operate according to the information that Iran and Hezbollah are working hard and with great intensity to release a 'quality' attack against Israeli/Jewish sites around the world."

We've seen this play by play many times before and frankly at this point the posturing is getting just silly. What we do want to find out, however, is how will Russia get involved in all of this. Because if recent actions are any precedent, we fully expect Putin to send an aircraft carrier, purely symbolically, in the Arabian Sea himself, just to indicate that any invasion, pardon, liberation, of Iran crude, will first have to go through him. And not to mention China... or India.

Finally, because some have expressed curiosity why the USS Enterprise, the oldest aircraft carrier in the US Navy, will be the 3rd "supporting" carrier in the Straits area, when it is due for decommissioning next year, here is one video with a theory, whether correct or incorrect, on why events may be transpiring the way they are.

False flag event in 3....2.....1....

Oh wait, that was NFP this moring!  Already happened!

Mr Lennon Hendrix's picture

That will happen over the next few months without a trigger, due to lax monetary policy and supply constraints.

A trigger puts the price in the $250-$300 range.

The price is slipping due to production loss and fiat devaluation.  The curve is more than constant, it is moving towards parabolic.  Pull the trigger and it lights the fuse.

Spirit Of Truth's picture

What's supply and demand got to do with it?

Well....the world might soon find out:

The mass "deflation" the world is facing is an implosion of false hope and faith in Mammon IMHO.

As for "false flags", stop kidding yourself:

As for the U.S.S. Enterprise, note it's role in "Operation Praying Mantis":

Sometimes history rhymes.

Minus away, cowards...

Terrorism is going to be one of the major issues in 2012, but nobody wants to face up to it. America needs to understand that terrorism, both domestic and external, is a real threat to our way of life. We can't just rely on our military for protection, we also need strong surveillance networks at home, and rewards for routing out potential domestic terrorists.

Nobody special's picture

Me thinks the true instigator here is Israel, not Iran.

As for routing out domestic terrorists, I don't think those in the White House and heading the world's banks would appreciate your suggestion MDB. They're happy where they are.

NO.  It is IRAN.

In Iran, cars next to scientists just happen to blow up all the time.  They probably imported chinese gasoline or were made in Russia. 

And our law enforcement needs to guard all the jewish shit it possibly can.  We cannot stand idly by while an aggressive state with nuclear weapons conducts itself belligerently in the middle east.  We must not only encourage but SUPPORT that state and get our people out to lay across puddles in the road so jewish shoes don't risk getting wet.

I've just received this video from my inside sources purporting to show "the state of play with the secret peace negotiations." i wish to emphasize the word PURPORT here people--as i can neither confirm nor deny whether the video is in fact authentic (though those sure do like 'mericans to me!) Apparently a viscious rumor was being spread that i was "the winking guy who started it all"--something i can neither confirm nor deny of course (;>). Apparently the Swiss moderators arrived just in time to order us all under arrest....

Can anyone honestly say in light of all this that gold is not going to the moon and up? 

lincolnsteffens's picture

Ye of little imagination. Think big. Gold is headed for Pluto ( maybe only Youranus ) and beyond.

Oh regional Indian's picture

More of this bull-shit till the Ides of March appear. Till then, sure... we will have this kind of rumor mongering a-plenty.

Closer to home and much more real is what is happening at San Onofre. Perhaps the Tyler's can do a story to bring it up in the general consciousness?


Very "loaded" time.

I just pray if Israel attacks Iran first, Iran and the Muslim countries wipes Israel off the face of the map so I, as a US citizen, no longer have to pay Israel foreign aid taxes anymore.


Terrorism is a tactic. You can't win a war against a tactic.

The Main Stream Media's Jewel of Deception Exposed by Dr Ronald Earnest Paul starting at about 7:00 in this national cable news show aired on CNN today.

Listen especially at 8:05 for the show stopper.

Ron Paul Interview On Piers Morgan Part Two 02/03/12!

I remember hijacking thread after thread many months ago with thousand comment discussions on a single thread on this very subject on ZH.

Wonder if Dr Paul reads ZH?

750 military bases in 130 countries.

Is the United States of America that Evil that it needs that much protection?

Piers Morgan is a cock sucker. If I saw him in person, I might punch him in the throat. Every time RP was making a point, he cut him off or went to commercial. Typical MSM bullshit. When someone tells the truth, interrupt or cut away. Cock sucker.

great great stuff.  how radical to hear an american politician say preemptive war is unwise, impractical and illegal!  that we are not the world's policeman required through all time to side with israel in all its combat with its neighbors whatever the circumstances.  of course the mainstream must call him crazy.

What A Long Strange Trip It Has Been.

Dr Ron Paul said;

"...that we are not the world's policeman required through all time to side with Israel in all its combat with its neighbors whatever the circumstances."

I just hope we all accept that understanding or else.

Our Gov't is more of a threat to us than terrorists.....I fear McCain, Graham, Obama, and Holder more and more everyday....Terrorists less and less

Tuco Benedicto Pacifico Juan Maria Ramirez's picture

Exactly right.  The odds of your dying from a bee sting or from a popping champagne cork are greater than dying from terrorism in the U. S.  That said, you can bet the alphabet soup tyrants comprised of former Americans in WDC will do their best to lower those odds over the months and years.


"If you see tryanny, say something!"

Did you now that even East Germany with all its tyranny did not set up internal roadside check points which the TSA is now rolling out!  You might carefully consder which side you want to be on in the future.  There are 25,000,000 vets in the U. S. and some may not like you!!!!!!!

you know people used this song all the time under "W"...but it seems more appropos now as "on the brink of peace World War III erupts."
As the Arabs say so well "tis God's will."

TSA is a jobs program that is far more annoying than welfare. This is the government's idea of creating jobs at your expense.

And $54 Bil. for Homeland Security creates a lot of jobs, and suspects they might talk in to being Perps.

I dont know about the rest of you but i'm never quite sure if I should give MDB a point up because I like the sarcasm, or a point down so that the huge red number drives home the absurdity of his post. Conundrum

I have a theory, that MDB is really Cog Dis ... creating ... cog-dis ...

Well..It doesn't get anymore Hitler Youth then this..

C_Monster's picture

That's exactly what Adolf Hitler did. The Nazis burned down the Reichstag and blamed it on Russian Jewish terrorists. They then took away much of the peoples rights (especially privacy rights) and set up a surveillance aka "big brother" society in the name of security. They then rewarded people who ratted out other citizens who may be "domestic terrorists". So, MDB, in your own words you would like to see Amerika turn into Nazi Germany. What a great idea! Surely nothing could go wrong with that ideology!

Silver has been known to be a great natural antibiotic for years and much better than synthetics because it doesn't kill the good bacteria. Cooidal silver is carried by a lot of backpackers and explorers types for its healing powers. Not surprised it may have even more benefits

Marco's picture

Putting nanomaterials with almost no mechanisms for expulsion into your body is kind of a bad idea ... they will accumulate. Gold probably won't do much but silver is a catalyst for a lot of reactions so I'd be hesitant at filling my cells with the stuff, also it can make you look like a smurf.

Tuco Benedicto Pacifico Juan Maria Ramirez's picture

Government studies have also concluded that consuming silver causes rapid weight gain!

francis_sawyer's picture

is that like "silver spooning"?

pods's picture

Those are silver ions that cause argyria, NOT colloidal silver.  A common misconception.  Proper atomic colloidal silver does NOT bio-accumulate and is a potent antibiotic.  Improperly generated silver through crude generators will generate significant amounts of ions, which will precipitate when it comes in contact with the gabillions of chloride ions in the human body.

Colloidal silver is suspended (thus the colloid) atomic silver particles.

Have taken it for years as a prophylaxis, with no negative effects.  It has been used topically for years in burn wrappings as well.

To each his own, but at least get your information correct.

the smurf man was a psyop to scare the sheep away from colloidal silver.    big pharma is a scam.  they create the disease, they sell you drugs that cover symptoms and more drugs to deal with side effects...  just another layer of control.

The particles are small enough to bypass cell walls and nothing binds to them ... how exactly do you suppose the body gets rid of it? I guess you could argue that simple diffusion means it won't accumulate, but that's a tad slow.

BTW, humans are generally speaking biotic ...

silverbullion's picture

I am a firm supporter of silver and a self-proclaimed silver bug, but the safety and effectiveness of Colloidal Silver has not been scientifically proven. Needless to say, I will only advocate its use and use it myself when it has been scientifically proven to be safe and effective. I don't want to be responsible for people causing harm to themselves based on my advice or support of Colloidal Silver.

I think it doesn't.  The study ref'd is a "perspective" (i.e. non-peer-reviewed) piece in a bottom-tier journal, that makes passing reference to a weak research study published in 2008 in another bottom-tier journal called "Metal Based Drugs."  What are the odds of getting your Ag study published in Metal Based Drugs?

But likely none of this will sway you, so fire away.

5- A massive Russian nuclear war-fighting air drill in the Arctic Circle that started on 9/10/01, the largest such exercise up to that time since the seeming collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, diverted NORAD's attention and monitoring to Canadian airspace and the Arctic just in time for the hijacked airline attacks on 9/11 in the U.S.  This diversionary event also drew U.S. air defense warplanes into Alaska and Canada such that they were unavailable when needed on 9/11 to intercept hijacked jetliners striking U.S. targets:

Hey....but why let the truth interfere with your foolish anti-American, anti-Israeli inclinations that have been intentionally stoked to open the way for World War Three, the destruction of Western Civilization and Russia's domination of the world in the name of "god"?:
