Please read/skim this entire “blast” e-mail, for it encompasses the absolute-latest events in Israel and

their geopolitical import; DebkaFile is red-white-blue “hot” [Turkey shopped Mossad spies to Iran – Netanyahu is warned (undermining under-the-radar anti-nuke efforts); A red herring hid Iran’s handover of secret US drone technology to Russia (with all due respect to BHO’s “reset”); Obama to Netanyahu: Iran sanctions will soon be partly lifted (supplanted, vide infra); Israeli air strikes in Syria reported by foreign sources and US (after BHO leaked the data, infuriating Israel); Major Israel-US rift over Washington plan to let Iran continue enriching uranium with sanctions relief (confirmed by Bibi, infra); Geneva fallout: Iran becomes a nuclear power, followed by Saudis. Israel loses trust in Obama.] Here is a pastiche of headlines from Drudge: kerry-making-unplanned-visit-to-geneva-for-iran-talks; Iranian state television broadcast simulated missile attack on Israel; and Palestinians say Israel 'only suspect' in Arafat death [ignoring the fact that the amount of polonium detected was minuscule and the lack of a chain-of-custody militated against the ability to differentiate poisoning from (suspected) AIDS]. Also, lest we forget the ongoing level of [ignored by BHO, the Dems, the media] anti-Israel violence: Terror Attack: Two Injured in Gush Etzion from Molotov Cocktail. When BB appears to have “completely lost it”…the need to place BHO’s foreign policy [along with his domestic policy] into some sort of “receivership”! Where-oh-where are those Dems whom AIPAC loves? Illustrating the failure of the libs to “pay attention” is the fact that there are absolutely no references to Israel in this week’s Jewish Exponent (except for citing Nutter’s trip and lamenting loss of the Consulate)! [Instead, two lefties (Waskow, praised by Steinem) are lionized, and Interfaith Families are touted.] Indeed, it’s one thing to be exasperated by the libs/progressives/Dems; it’s quite another to sense that events may be unfolding rapidly…and, therefore, it’s necessary for emergence of “an adult in the room.” Candidly, the situation is beyond infuriating, for these data have predictably resulted from prior errors. * While @ the polls on Tuesday, I concluded it would be counterproductive to remind Marcel Gruen, Esq. [Chair of the MontCo Dems and professed-to-be-“devout-friend”-of-Israel] for the umpteenth-time of how BHO endangers Eretz Yisrael, for fervent articulation of this highly-intuitive observation has fallen on deaf-ears during the past half-decade [despite provision of documentation]; thus, his wife [Bernice] was simply told they will share spillage of Israeli blood, while the votes were being counted @ 8 p.m. Why? Note that Furious Israel confronts USA because Obama secretly lifted Iran sanctions months ago and now pushes the 'Deal of the century' which BB has publicly exclaimed: 'THIS IS A VERY, VERY BAD DEAL.' Compounding this atmospheric is Kerry’s attack on Zionism, for the pressure to capitulate is intense: Secretary of State John Kerry of the United States delivered a grim warning to Israel on Thursday that failure to make peace with the Palestinian Authority could trigger a new Arab uprising. He said, in a joint interview with Israel's Channel 2 and the Palestinian Broadcasting Corporation, "The alternative to getting back to the talks is the potential of chaos." The top US diplomat asked, "I mean, does Israel want a third intifada?" using the Arabic word for uprising. Arlene Kushner’s interpretation is unnerving, even as Kerry appears poised to capitulate in Geneva:

The interview was with Udi Segal, of Israel's channel 2 and also with Maher Shalabi, of Palestinian TV. And so, what Kerry is also guilty of, besides intimidation and blackmail, is incitement. He was speaking to a Palestinian Arab audience as well. And he was giving the nod to their being violent if they are not happy with the Israeli stance. This is the chief diplomatic officer of the United States of America? This is the despicable low to which the US has fallen? Please! Translate that outrage into action. Do not sit still for a secretary of state who speaks to Israel thus. To protest to the White House or State Department is pointless. Contact your Congressional representatives [here are links Congresspersons/Senators]. Protest this in the strongest terms. DEMAND that intimidation of Israel stop. Call for the firing of Kerry. He doesn't qualify as dog catcher of Washington DC. And, please, share this posting absolutely as broadly as you can, encouraging others to also protest Kerry's behavior. ~~~~~~~~~~ On the flip side of this vile behavior, we can see encouraging news. Kerry is desperate or he wouldn't be speaking this way. Pay no attention to his babble about how much progress has been made in just days. He is not getting from Israel the concessions he is seeking. What is more, he has now thoroughly and completely discredited himself with the Israeli government, which had no official comment. I don't know this from official sources but understand it intuitively. He is less likely now, not more likely, to have the leverage to convince our government of anything. One unnamed Israeli official called this, from Kerry, "a worrying and dangerous precedent." I would say that, should Arab violence increase in the wake of this interview, any Jewish blood that is spilled would be on Kerry's hands. Let us stay strong, and hold fast to our rights. Much more - in particular on Iran - coming soon. Shabbat Shalom. Here is what Bibi said {read/weep}: [Dr. Aaron Lerner - IMRA: Unprecedented. Watch the video and you can see PM Netanyahu is both furious and terrified. Furious that the Americans are idiots. Terrified about the ramifications.]

PM Netanyahu's Remarks Following his Meeting with US Secretary of State John Kerry (Communicated by the Prime Minister's Media Adviser) Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, this morning (Friday, 8 November 2013), made the following remarks after his meeting with US Secretary of State John Kerry: "I met Secretary Kerry right before he leaves to Geneva. - I reminded him that he said that no deal is better than a bad deal. And the deal that is being discussed in Geneva right now is a bad deal. - It’s a very bad deal. - Iran is not required to take apart even one centrifuge. - But the international community is relieving sanctions on Iran for the first time after many years. - Iran gets everything that it wanted at this stage and pays nothing. And this is when Iran is under severe pressure. I urge Secretary Kerry not to rush to sign, to wait, to reconsider, to get a good deal. But this is a bad deal, a very, very, bad deal. It’s the deal of a century for Iran; it’s a very dangerous and bad deal for peace and the international community." [Dr. Aaron Lerner - IMRA: "no amount of pressure will make me or the Government of Israel compromise on the basic security and national interests of the State of Israel." From time to time PM Netanyahu has mentioned "national interests", typically terming them "vital national interests". Question: is "basic national interests" broader than "vital national interests"? It would appear that "vital national interests" was limited in presentations to united Jerusalem and the issue of the refugees. Is "basic" broader to include, for example, the Machpelah in Hebron?] These were PM Netanyahu's Remarks Prior to his Meeting with US Secretary of State John Kerry "I understand that the Iranians are walking around very satisfied in Geneva, as well they should be, because they got everything, and paid nothing, they wanted. - They wanted relief from sanctions after years of a grueling sanctions regime. They got that.

- They are paying nothing because they are not reducing in any way their nuclear enrichment capability. - So Iran got the deal of the century and the international community got a bad deal. - This is a very bad deal. Israel utterly rejects it and what I am saying is shared by many, many in the region whether or not they express it publicly. - Israel is not obliged by this agreement and Israel will do everything it needs to defend itself, to defend the security of its people. - That is true also of our negotiations with the Palestinians. - I will never compromise on Israel's security and our vital interests, not in the face of any international pressure. - I think the pressure has to be put where it belongs, that is on the Palestinians who refuse to budge. - But I think in any case, no amount of pressure will make me or the Government of Israel compromise on the basic security and national interests of the State of Israel . The people of Israel know this and they support it, as they should." This is the Special Message from Minister, and member of the Security Cabinet Naftali Bennett, in regards to talks with Iran []: These critical days in November will be remembered for years to come. The Free World stands before a fork in the road with a clear choice: Either stand strong and insist Iran dismantles its nuclear-weapons program, or surrender, cave in and allow Iran to retain its 18,500 centrifuges. Years from now, when an Islamic terrorist blows up a suitcase in New York, or when Iran launches a nuclear missile at Rome or Tel Aviv, it will have happened only because a Bad Deal was made during these defining moments. Like in a boxing match, Iran's regime is currently on the floor. The count is just seconds away from 10. Now is the time to step up the pressure and force Iran to dismantle its nuclear program. Not to let it up. It would be dangerous to lift the sanctions and accept a deal which allows Iran to retain its entire uranium-production line. It would be dangerous because Iran would, a year, two or three from now, just turn everything back on and obtain a nuclear weapon before the world can do anything to stop it.

It is not enough to shut off the centrifuges. They need to be completely dismantled. We call upon the West to avoid signing a Bad Deal. Israel's responsibility is to ensure the security of its citizens and that is exactly what we will do. We will never outsource our security Lest the immediate consequences “on the ground” be ignored, know that Iran reciprocated Azerbaijan border closure [Press TV (Iran) Fri Nov 8, 2013 1:15PM GMT]; recall that last year’s BHO-inspired leak was of the tactical plan to refuel any bombers [of Israel upon Iran] using this country [contiguous to Iran from the north]. Note the “gathering clouds of war” [illustrating how Iran is pressuring BHO]: Iran has sealed off Jolfa and Bileh-Savar border crossings with the Republic of Azerbaijan in response to Baku’s closure of a passage point along the border between the two neighbors, an Iranian diplomat says. Mohammad Ayatollahi, the press secretary at Iran Embassy in Baku, said on Friday that Iranian border guards closed the border crossing on Thursday in reaction to Azerbaijan’s closure of Poledasht-Shah Takhti border crossing and Baku's refusal to negotiate over the issue. Iran closed Jolfa and Bileh-Savar border crossings after issuing an advance notice to the Azeri side, noted the Iranian official. Ayatollahi said Azerbaijan sealed the border crossing in an “unconventional move” on Wednesday after an unidentified assailant opened fire on a tractor in the border region without causing any casualties. He stated that the border closure has created serious problems for Iranian passengers and drivers. Ayatollahi said, under similar circumstances, border guards from both countries meet to resolve the case. “But, despite the request of Iranian border guards, the Azeri side has refused to negotiate and has moved to close Poledasht border crossing,” the Iranian official added. He stated that an Iranian border guard was killed by Azeri security forces in Bileh-Savar two years ago, but Iran did not close the border and pursued the issue through the relevant authorities.
