The Great Iranian Sting, by David Wilder (Jerusalem Post)
While our warriors are on the battlefield fighting, it’s difficult to express criticism of any kind. But it is of the utmost importance to know and internalize that the present warfare is not only about rockets pounding our southern cities. Of course, any sovereign nation cannot allow its citizens to be attacked day after day, week after week, year after year, without responding. [...]
This author has thought long and hard as to whether to blog on this travesty. Ordinarily, an election in the US seems not to be appropriate for blogging here, for the truth is that policy and actions undertaken here emanate here in Israel.
Further, there was a time when Israeli leaders stood up defiantly when America attempted to dictate policy as this recent Jerusalem Post report dating back to Prime Minister Menachem Begin indicates.
Regarding the issue behind the gyrations and machinations surrounding whether or not Israel hands over of land to her enemies and expells thousands, tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of Jews from their homes, as they did to the Jews of Gush Katif and the four Shomron towns; the issue did not and does not emanate in Washington nor does Washington facilitate implementation of such actions.

Report: Israeli Agents Say Teheran Tested Nuclear Fuse (Jerusalem Post)
Iran has developed and even tested a fuse to be used for nuclear weapons, Israeli agents stationed in Iran have told the White House, according to a report published in the US weekly journal New Yorker on Monday morning.
According to the report, the White House received the information but did not hand it to the CIA.
The Israeli intelligence was in stark contrast to recent CIA estimations on Iran’s nuclear program that Teheran was far from attaining a nuclear bomb. [...]
Column One: Israel’s Delighted Leaders, by Caroline Glick (Jerusalem Post)
“In Olmert and Livni’s world, Israel won the war in Lebanon this summer; UNIFIL forces are good for the Jews; and Hizbullah – which is now working to overthrow the Lebanese government – has no interest in renewing its war against Israel.
The government sees no reason to prevent 1,500 PLO terrorists from Jordan from marching into Gaza with their guns and their families.”
To the delight of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, an international coalition has coalesced around Iran’s nuclear weapons program. [...]
