    Israel's Getting Ready To Take Out Iran's Nukes

    Israel preparing action against Iran if diplomacy doesn't work: minister

    JERUSALEM (AP) - Israeli Defence Minister Shaul Mofaz hinted Saturday that Israel is preparing for military action to stop Iran's nuclear program but said international diplomacy must be the first course of action.

    Mofaz's comments, made at an academic conference in the Israeli coastal town Herzliya, stopped short of overtly threatening a military strike. But his comments were likely to add to the growing tension with Iran.

    Israel has long identified Iran as its biggest threat and accuses the Iranian government of pursuing nuclear weapons. Iran insists its atomic program is peaceful.

    Mofaz welcomed the U.S.-led effort to bring Iran before the UN Security Council, saying sanctions and international oversight of Iran's nuclear program are the "correct policy at this time." But he suggested Israel is preparing for military action if the diplomatic efforts fail.

    "Israel will not be able to accept an Iranian nuclear capability and it must have the capability to defend itself, with all that that implies, and this we are preparing," Mofaz said.

    Israeli leaders have repeatedly said they hope the crisis can be resolved through diplomacy and any military action would have to be part of an international effort. Israeli officials have denied having plans for a unilateral preventive strike.

    Israel's concerns about Iran have grown since the election of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who said last year Israel should be "wiped off the map."

    Mofaz accused Iran of helping mastermind a suicide bombing that wounded 20 people in Tel Aviv last week.

    During a trip to Syria last week, Ahmadinejad met with leaders of Islamic Jihad, the group that carried out the bombing, and challenged Europe to take back the Jews who emigrated to Israel. It was the latest in a string of comments questioning Israel's existence.

    Israel Warns Iran Faces Destruction
    Iran faces 'destruction' - Israel warns
    By MARTIN WALKER
    UPI Editor

    HERZLIYA, Israel, Jan. 21 (UPI) --

    Israeli Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz warned the Iranian people Saturday that they faced "destruction" unless they managed to restrain their new President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

    "Look at the fate of others who sought the destruction of the Jewish people. They only brought havoc and destruction to the own people," Mofaz said.

    "I know that a large part of the people of Iran do not support his policies but his despicable acts could bring destruction to all of you. You understand what must be done to prevent this," Mofaz added, directly addressing the Iranian people.

    It was the toughest statement of Israel's determination to block Iran's nuclear ambitions since the stroke that felled Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon two weeks ago, and it came just two days before the next scheduled international inspection of Iran's nuclear research facilities

    I'd say it's going to get ugly over there soon.

    Can't say I blame them.

    When the leader of a nation publicly states that your country should be "wiped off the map"...

    The sooner Israel takes care of Iran, the better, thats my personal opinion. But God's will shall be done, I'm just wondering If I'm thinking the same thing He is. Thoughts?

    Cause trouble? Sounds like a matter of opinion. Please explain your point.

    Yeah right, they are big trouble makers. They want the right to exist, how absurd. You need to do your homework.

    What???

    Israel is the ONLY democratic and free society in the middle East. For that they are hated and despised by their despotic "neighbors."
