Iranian Defection Led to Strike on Syrian Nuclear Site
The February 2007 defection of a retired senior Iranian military official to the U.S.
paved the way for the Israeli raid that destroyed a Syrian nuclear site in September of
that year, according to an article in Thursday's edition of the Swiss newspaper Neue
Zuercher Zeitung, written by Hans Ruehle, former chief of the planning staff of the German
According to Ruehle, The U.S. and Israel were both caught off guard by the claim made
by Reza Asghari - a retired general in Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards and a former
deputy defense minister - "that Iran was financing a secret nuclear project of Syria and
North Korea." The two countries made up for it with an intensive investigation leading up
to September 6th raid.
America 'Moves Towards Abandonment of Israel'
An unidentified former highly-placed U.S. intelligence official has broken silence and
said that America may soon be abandoning Israel in favor of the Arabs. "This is just the
beginning", he said, "Israel could be about to lose the support of the United States."
The source made these remarks in an exclusive interview with Douglas J. Hagmann, the
director of the Northeast Intelligence Network (NIN), which is comprised of veteran
licensed professional investigators, analysts, military affairs specialists and
researchers. The group has combined their resources to provide accurate and well-sourced
information via their website.
Hagmann appeared on Israel National Radio's Weekend Edition with host Tamar Yonah. When
questioned about the possible abandonment of Israel by America, Hagmann told Yonah, "The
Obama administration is no friend to Israel, is no friend to the Jews in America and is no
friend to democracy or freedom in America.
Just by his very appointments, we can
see him filling positions of power with people who are anti-Semitic, who want to see
Israel essentially dissolved as a nation, if not by diplomacy, then certainly by war."
In his report, the unidentified source told Hagmann, "I have every reason to believe,
based on what I've seen at my level of [security] clearance especially over the last
several years, that Israel will soon be completely on their own
He explained this would happen "when our administration provides more support to Arab
countries [with] financial and military aid, undercutting Israel's defense efforts all
while pushing Israel to succumb to the pressure of unreasonable demands designed to end
with their political annihilation as a nation."
Hagmann reported that "the Middle East will be the site of 'the coming war,' and Israel
will be at its epicenter. If we survive as a nation, the U.S. will not be on the side of
righteousness in this war, instead turning our back to - or our guns against - our only
true friend in the Middle East - Israel," he said.
Israel Arrests Hamas Politicians in West Bank After Talks Collapse
By Luis Ramirez (VOA-Jerusalem)
Israeli soldiers have arrested a number of Hamas politicians in the West Bank. The
arrests follow the collapse of indirect negotiations between Israel and the militant
Islamist group this week.
Hamas officials labeled the arrests an attempt by Israel to punish the group after the
two sides failed to reach a deal for a truce in indirect negotiations for a prisoner swap
brokered by Egypt.
Israel had sought to win the release of Gilad Shalit, a soldier seized by Palestinian
terrorists and taken to the Gaza Strip in 2006. Talks broke down when Israel refused to
hand over all of the Palestinian prisoners that Hamas wanted released - some of whom
included people involved in terror attacks that killed Israeli civilians.
Among those arrested in the Israeli-occupied West Bank were four Hamas members of the
Palestinian Legislative Council and a university professor. A statement from Israel's
military said those detained were leaders of an ongoing effort to restore the
administrative branch of Hamas, which Israel considers a terrorist organization. The group
does not recognize the Jewish State's right to exist and has called for its destruction.
In remarks carried by Israeli radio, Hamas lawmaker Moushir al-Masri condemned the
arrests. He accused Israel of trying to blackmail Hamas, an effort he vowed will fail.
In a related story, long time Fatah leader Mohammed Dahlan said the organization has
never recognized Israel's right to exist. The former Fatah security commander made the
remarks during an interview with a Palestinian Authority-controlled TV station.
Dahlan was responding to a question about Fatah's reported insistence that Hamas
recognize Israel's right to exist as a precondition for the establishment of a Palestinian
unity government. "We acknowledge that the PLO did recognize Israel's right to exist, but
we are not bound by it as a resistance faction," he added
Chapin: Destroy Iranian Nuclear Facilities Now
By Israel Faxx News Services
Roger Chapin, founder and President of Make America Safe, has written an article for
the Washington Times which advocates preemptive strikes on Iran to destroy their nuclear
facilities at the earliest possible time.
Chapin wants the U.S. to act preemptively to head off an Iranian nuclear attack on
Israel and an electro-magnetic pulse (EMP) attack on the United States.
"And given Israel's warnings to Iran and its prior attacks on Iraqi and Syrian nuclear
targets, Iran will very likely try and nuke Israel first, especially with the very hawkish
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu now in charge," Chapin wrote. "Since the U.S. would
presumably retaliate, this makes an Iranian pre-emptive EMP attack on the United States
all the more likely."
Chapin explained that an EMP could be generated by detonating a single nuclear-armed
missile 200 miles above the U.S., which could be launched from a freighter off the Gulf
Coast. He cited a congressionally authorized EMP Commission report in April 2008 which
said such an attack would render most computers inoperable, thereby knocking out the
electric grid system with devastating consequences. He said most of the population would
die from starvation or disease within a year.
"The American people must understand that no less than the survival of our nation as we
know it today is at stake and that circumstances beyond our control could prompt a
catastrophic EMP attack upon us at any moment," he wrote.
Chapin warned that the situation is grave. "No matter how you figure it, it's an almost
unbelievably scary situation, especially given the relative ease with which an EMP attack
could be launched against our homeland and how utterly catastrophic it would be," he said.
"Never before has an American president faced a more fateful decision."
Lamenting the lack of awareness by the public and the Congress of "the horrific menace
we face," Chapin called for a national debate on this "all-important issue."
Iranian Official: Nobody Sees What Pope Does in Vatican
A member of Iran's Supreme Council for Cultural Revolution has claimed that the Pope
traveled overseas to compensate alleged victims of sexual attacks by alleged homosexual
priests. The comments of Hassan Rahimpour Azghadi were made several months ago and
translated for publication on Wednesday by the Middle East Media Research Institute
Azghadi, addressing viewers on Iranian TV, charged that the pope traveled to the United
States and Australia to compensate victims of alleged sexual abuse by priests. The Iranian
official's function is to help export the Islamic Revolution and act against Western
influence and feminism.
He stated in one speech, "The corrupt pope went on a tour in order to cover up the
homosexuality of his priests. As you know, he made a tour from America to Australia,
saying: 'We are sorry that our priests are pedophiles and homosexuals.' ... He paid $3
billion in compensation to families whose little children were abused by priests in
churches. But nobody sees what the pope himself does in the Vatican. It's not clear who
should apologize for the pope's deeds."
In another speech, he took aim at the U.S., stating its values are "sex, violence and
melancholy." We do not want to coexist with America. We want to combat America not
just America, but Zionism, England, and the leaders of global capitalism, who are
exploiting the Muslims and the oppressed throughout the world," said Azghadi.
He also claimed that the U.S. suffered almost no casualties in World War II because it
entered in the final stages, although historians estimate the number of American
casualties to have been between 300,000-400,000.
"In the many films about World War II, which you must have seen, the main characters
are always American or English, and each of these characters kills 2,000 or 3,000 Germans
singlehanded," he declared. "They produce hundreds or thousands of films about operations
that never took place, heroic feats they never accomplished, and sacrifices they never
made. They are highly skilled in this."
Azghadi concluded that the history of the war was recorded according to the victor. He
said if the German-Japanese axis had won the war, "All the negative things said about
Fascism and Nazism, and all the talk about a free world it would all have been
reversed. If the Communists had prevailed, the regime of liberal capitalism would have
disappeared, and everything would have been recounted from a Communist perspective."
Hamas Offers Reward for Men That Marry Gaza Widows
Hamas is offering a $3000 reward for any man willing to marry the widow of a "shahid"
(a martyr), several Arab websites reported this week. Hamas initiated the move in an
attempt to lower the number of widowed women in the Gaza Strip who lost the spouses who
provided for them and their children, and in order to ease their emotional grief and
The number of widows in Gaza has grown dramatically after Operation Cast Lead. The
Palestinian society regards divorcées and widows in a negative way, and young men
usually refrain from marrying them. Hamas hopes that by encouraging men to wed these
women, it will be providing them with stability and a better life.
According to the report, Hamas has set a number of terms that the grooms must meet in
order to receive the money: The men must be able to provide for two women or more, be
religiously devout and ethical. They are also required to allocate sufficient space in
their house for the new wife, help care for her children and treat them as if they were
PA Plans to Fly Glider Painted in Palestinian Colors over Jerusalem
The Palestinian Authority is planning to fly a glider plane painted in the colors of
the Palestinian national flag over the walls of Jerusalem's Old City on Saturday. The
stunt is to be part of a series of events held by the Palestinian Authority declaring the
city to be "the capital of Arabic culture for 2009."
The head of the Legal Forum for the Land of Israel, Nachi Eyal, on Wednesday urged
Public Security Minister Avi Dichter and Police Commissioner David Cohen to thwart the
staging of the event.
"To the best of my understanding, this is an attempt to demonstrate Palestinian
sovereignty in Jerusalem in an illegal manner," said Eyal. "The law...obligates the
Palestinian Authority to respect the sovereignty of Israel within the bounds of the State
of Israel, including East Jerusalem."
Police are preparing to prevent the events in Jerusalem from taking place.
