An anti-Zionist government would be a welcome change for the world.

Even if that were true, which it is not, we are not talking about the world. We are talking about one country protecting themselves from an outside threat (and you) of genocide. In that case…nuke ‘em (Iran that is…and you too).

Why a reputable news outlet continues to publish such rubbish put forth by the Palestinian Jews is a mystery.
The Palestinian Jews have a record that would make the Nazis blush.

Netanyahu: Iran threat is paramount for new Israeli government.

Yeah, we know it shouldn’t be like this without Netanyahu. Should we allow him to hijack all Jewish communities around the world again and again?

So what do you suggest Palestinians do? Their nation has been raped since 1967, 600.000 Jews are living on their land in ever expanding illegal settlements, is that genocide or what? Following your logic Iran has every right to nuke Israel. Open a map of ME and check out military bases around Iran, who is under threat friend? If you were Iran, would you feel safe surrounded by dozens of military bases. With $16 trillion debt around its neck days of US bullying seem to be coming to an end. It’s a matter of time before the whole thing collapses taking Israel with them. At least we will have peace in ME and at long last.

Netanyahu is committed to war not peace. His announcement to continue with illegal settlement building is deliberately deigned to destroy the establishment of a Palestinian state, in direct violation of the will of the UN, the EU and the US.

The only recourse now for the international community is to abrogate all bilateral trade agreements with this Israeli government.

Iran’s military innovations and buildup are at frightening speed, but like India, she didn’t have invasion record outside the country in her 4,000 years of civilisation. Warmongering Netanyahu is just finding an excuse to get to war, while Obama signals direct dialogue with Iranian leaders. South Korea has every right to insist North Korea devoid of nukes, becoz the former never had. Why Israel is jealous of Iran having nuke if Israel already equipped with same more than 30 years ago ? Don’t be a blind-faith follower.

A country that already has nuclear arms (Israel) is going to make sure a nation they’re constantly making threats against doesn’t get nuclear weapons to even the playing field? What a load of bullcrap! Take a look at your history, people! Iran hasn’t attacked anyone for nearly 100 years! Israel has bombed Iran multiple times; how many times did Iran retaliate? Not once!

All solid evidence coming out of Iran from the IAEA says that there is no nuclear weapons program, and all of its fissionable material is accounted for, and in civilian usage. We’re to take the word of Israel — a nation that routinely invades its neighbours, illegally holds land that belongs to Palestine, Syria and Jordan, that holds a threat of nuclear annihilation over the region — that Iran, a nation with a troubling history, but has been ultimately peaceful in the end, is somehow a threat to them?

Give me a break! Lift the sanctions on Iran, and put them on Israel instead. They’re the real threat; the real destabilizing factor in the region. Iran and the other Arab and Persian nations of the region only started calling for the dissolution of Israel when Israel proved to be childishly imperialistic, and started conducting a dedicated program of sabotage and assassination all over the region for the past 50 years! Everything directed at Israel now is well earned by the Israeli; they are the architects of their own damnation.

Netayahu threat is paramount for Israel. It is the Netanyahu gang’s extremist policies and criminal activities that is taking Israel down the road to destruction.

Netanyahu is the biggest danger. A fanatic with real nukes here and now, unlike Iran’s fabled weapon coming some time in the future – and they can’t even get their nuclear power-station working!!

If you are “with” the policies of the current Israeli government you will be complicit in the death of Israel. If, on the otherhand, you are “with” the State of Israel you need to speak out against the current Israeli government. …… Choose only one option.

I don’t agree with Netanyahu, but he gives job security to those who supply arms, munitions, technology, and intelligence information to the other side. Those who call themselves Israelis are European jews who began migrating in the late 1800′s. The last time Europeans held territory around Jerusalem, the muslims fought for 195 years to drive them out. This war has 130 years to go if the US and Israel last that long. My partners and I enjoy the job security.
