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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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 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.

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.

Do the calcs on how much extra we're paying for oil because of these theatrics. Notice how they become more extreme when WTI drops below $100. Depending on where you put fair value in this oil glutted market ($80 maybe?) we are paying a least a billion a day extra on top of what the aircraft carriers are costing. Then there's the economic drag from high oil. I may be wrong (hope not) but I think this is all kabuki for elections, bankers profits and magaician's slight of hand so we don't keep track of real events. No attack. When WTI hits $105 short it hard. You know Goldman will.

No no no. It's when you pretend to attack yourself so you "accidentally" attack your enemy, but instead inflict damage on yourself by friendly fire.

The BLS (Bureau of Laughable Bullshit) just came out and amended its prior U3 report, and has stated that they see an accretive 227,000 jobs gained for the month of January in the U.S. as a result of the just now high alert military status Israel has issued in response to what they have said are Iranian provocations/threats.

Today's earlier reported +244,000 new jobs in the U.S. is hereby amended to reflect an actual net job gain for the month of January, 2012 as +471,000.

That's the best argument you have? That's pure supposition. You want the U.S. to expend considerable resources to launch a war that will almost surely kill innocent people, based solely on supposition?

Even if the scenario you lay out were true, I see no direct threat to the U.S. Iran doesn't have the technology. As for a threat to Israel, I highly doubt Iran would ever pre-emptively nuke Israel. Iran knows that if it did so, the U.S. and Europe would wipe Tehran off the map with full backing from the U.N.

This is all about regional hegemony. Iran has proxy forces in Lebanon (Hezbollah) and Palestine (Hamas). Over the past three decades, Israel has recklessly invaded both Lebanon and Palestine on a semi-regular basis with impunity. That will be a much riskier venture if these countries now have a nuclear-backed regional power backing them. It's also about appeasing the Arab petro-kingdoms. They've been really hurt by the West's ongoing financial debacle. $300-a-barrel oil and control over the Straits of Hormuz is a way for the West to pay them back.

The USG is so sensitive about all Iran does,  because they are Iran's jilted suitor or spouse.  They *know* that Iranians are perfectly normal people, that Iran is a (medium) developed country that they used to have firmly embraced through the installed Shah.

The US still pines for the old Iran that was their faithful policeman in the ME. 

Iran before 1979 was full of americans , right up to the Bell helicopter factory in Isfahan and complete with the whores that their vets had brought with them from VietNam.

That the Iranian people rejected the US in 1979 and threw the Shah out made the US act like the nasty party in a divorce.  

For Iran , it's just like getting "sanctions" imposed by your vengeful ex.

We made the movie "The Day After" in the 1980's about Russia sending nukes our way.  I watched it a few months ago on youtube.  All the manuvering of military leading up to everything.. frankly, just like now.. but everyone living their lives like normal until it starts.  Taught Americans of the idiocy.

Today, we trade and talk with Russia.

The Day After was a one hell of a TV show.

Wargames was another that packed movies for weeks. Entire theaters played to no other movies at all. All they had were dedicated to wargames.


Even today if I hear a 10 second blast it's a standby alert. If I hear a series of 2 second blast, it's a scramble to flush the bombers before the enemy missiles arrive.


Sadly these new generations growing up now like the young mother and her two week old baby sitting in a repair shop getting car fixed have no idea... no idea at all.


Lucky are those who are either cremated so fast the only remaining is the shadow from the flash or those who are killed outright.

It would be worse to wander a ash filled debris field with no sight (Eyes burned out) and no shoes due to overpressure. Or to be sliced to peices by falling skyscraper glass.

Or to be stuck in a intact suburb wondering when/if the hordes will come for you.

The old time fallout shelters were expected to be easily bulldozed after they have become mass graves in a month or so. The USA had serious plans to rebuild the Mail and some other vital links across the Nation. But only for the good of the Country at war, not for jow blow or jane snap and her 6 children by 3 different fathers.

Oh yea, I am a Doomer, I have lived my life being ready for shit like this.


Russia is a good trade partner. However I will never ever trust the Russian Bear or the Red Dragon. Never. Trade? Commerce? Sure. How much and what currency please?


I scanned some seafood for radiation tonight in a walmart, one customer was curious and asked me what I was doing? I told them that Fukushima Dachi had melted down in Japan and the radiation is ongoing globally and am checking the food before I cart it out for it.

That person's eyes grew wide as if I was a foaming nutcase and started backing up... wanted nothing to do with me.

The whispering and pointing followed me from asile to asile. Pretty interesting.

Back in the '80's when the idea of global thermonuclear war came up and people would ask, "What would you do if the sirens went off?"

My reply, 'Go outside away from the buildings into a nice open space, close my eyes and wait for the flash."


'Because we are targeted for two 20 megaton weapons and I KNOW I don't want to be alive after they go off.'

I spent part of the '70's researching nuclear weapons and a different part designing facilities for the DOE. If you want to now what the grown ups worry about with Iran, search for the term "bucket shot". It was in a post on here a long time ago.

We only attack weak countries that cannot fight back.  Period.
