Israel chockat efter Obama var redo att lyfta sanktionerna mot Iran genast – Obama tvinar IDF att attackera Irans kärnvapen

Israeli analysts expressed shock and amazement Friday night at US President Barack Obama’s stated openness to Iran’s demand for the immediate lifting of all economic sanctions, and his defense of Russia’s agreement to supply a sophisticated air defense system to Iran.

There was no immediate official Israeli response to the president’s comments, which were made after the start of Shabbat in Israel, when politicians generally do not work.

“Jaws dropped” around the studio, said the Channel 10 News diplomatic commentator Ben Caspit, as news broke of Obama’s declared empathy for Russian President Vladimir Putin’s decision to supply Tehran with the S-300 missile defense system.

“Obama is something else,” Caspit added. “He’s decided to take America out of the wars…”

The station’s news anchor, Alon Ben David, chipped in, “He’s amazed that the Russians honored an agreement with him [for this long]? That’s what is astonishing.”

Responded Caspit, “This is the new America. We had better get used to it.”

Channel 10 also quoted unnamed senior Israeli diplomatic officials saying the prospect of Israel derailing the deal taking shape in US-led talks with Iran on its nuclear program was now zero. “The Iran issue is finished,” the officials were quoted saying.

In Washington earlier on Friday, Obama said he was surprised that Russia’s suspension of missile sales to Iran had “held this long.”

Obama noted that Putin had previously suspended the sale “at our request. I am frankly surprised that it held this long, given that they were not prohibited by sanctions from selling these defensive weapons.”

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has furiously protested the planned supply of the advanced systems, and phoned Putin this week to try to persuade him to reconsider, but was rebuffed. Israel fears the S-300s would complicate any military intervention as a last resort to thwart Iran’s nuclear drive. It also fears Iran could supply the missile defense systems to Syria or Hezbollah, diluting Israel’s air supremacy over Syria and Lebanon.

Obama on Friday also left open the door to “creative negotiations” in response to Iran’s demand that punishing sanctions be immediately lifted as part of a nuclear deal, even though the US has said the framework agreement reached in Lausanne earlier this month calls for the penalties to be removed over time.

Asked whether he would definitively rule out lifting sanctions at once as part of a final deal aimed at keeping Iran from developing a nuclear weapon, Obama said he didn’t want to get ahead of negotiators in how to work through the potential sticking point. He said his main concern is making sure that if Iran violates an agreement, sanctions can quickly be reinstated — the so-called “snap back” provision.

“How sanctions are lessened, how we snap back sanctions if there’s a violation, there are a lot of different mechanisms and ways to do that,” Obama said. He said part of the job for Secretary of State John Kerry and the representatives of five other nations working to reach a final deal with Iran by June 30 “is to sometimes find formulas that get to our main concerns while allowing the other side to make a presentation to their body politic that is more acceptable.”

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and President Hassan Rouhani insisted last week that they would not sign a deal unless all sanctions are lifted right after an agreement is signed. Obama initially portrayed their comments as a reflection of internal political pressure, while pointing out that the framework agreement provides for sanctions to be phased out only once international monitors verify that Tehran is abiding by the limitations.

Vad innebär det att Iran får ryska S-300 ?

What Does Iran’s Acquiring the S-300 Mean? – J.E. Dyer (Liberty Unyielding)
Russia’s selling the S-300 air defense missile system to Iran is bad.
The mobile S-300 could dramatically complicate the air space picture for strike planners, with the missile launchers moving around to evade reconnaissance.
Iran could also lose a launcher and quickly deploy another one to fill the gap. It has nothing approaching this capability today.
The S-300’s range and mobility will make an attacking force work much harder, and probably take more losses, to fight through to its targets.
No defensive system makes an attack impossible, but the S-300 makes an attack cost more.
Defeating the S-300, in order to give a meaningful thump to the Iranian nuclear program, would not require a conventional ground invasion. But it would require considerably more tactical air forces than the U.S. has in a ready status today.
Israel will have to get creative. The S-300 poses a significant problem. Israel actually has more strike-fighters combat ready and available for an Iran attack today than the U.S. does.
But there’s no option of flying into an S-300 network once it goes active. It must be degraded – blinded, immobilized to some level – before the first main-target attack aircraft shows up.
The S-300 forces a decision on the Israelis about what their threshold is: at what point do they decide they can’t do enough damage after the S-300 is deployed, and must strike before it’s deployed.
There is a force sufficient to punch holes in the S-300 and do meaningful, extensive, cost-effective damage to Iran’s nuclear program – the combined attack assets of the U.S. and Israel.

U.S.: Military Option in Iran ”Intact” Despite Russian Missiles(Reuters)
Despite Russia’s decision to deliver its S-300 missile defense system to Tehran, ”We’ve known about the potential for that system to be sold to Iran for several years and have accounted for it in all of our planning,” General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Thursday.
”The military option…to ensure that Iran doesn’t achieve a nuclear weapon is intact.”

Italiensk polis: Muslimska emigranter kastar kristna över bord

 

Italian Police: Muslim Migrants Threw Christians Overboard– Hada Messia (CNN)

Rome (CNN)Muslims who were among migrants trying to get from Libya to Italy in a boat this week threw 12 fellow passengers overboard — killing them — because the 12 were Christians, Italian police said Thursday.

Italian authorities have arrested 15 people on suspicion of murdering the Christians at sea, police in Palermo, Sicily, said.

Why migrants are dying to get to Italy

The original group of 105 people left Libya on Tuesday in a rubber boat. Sometime during the trip north across the Mediterranean Sea, the alleged assailants — Muslims from the Ivory Coast, Mali and Senegal — threw the 12 overboard, police said.

Other people on the voyage told police that they themselves were spared ”because they strongly opposed the drowning attempt and formed a human chain,” Palermo police said.

The boat was intercepted by an Italian navy vessel, which transferred the passengers to a Panamanian-flagged ship. That ship docked in Palermo on Wednesday, after which the arrests were made, police said.

‘I enter Europe or I die': Desperate migrants rescued this week off Italy

The 12 who died were from Nigeria and Ghana, police said.

Thousands of people each year make the dangerous sea journey from North Africa to Europe’s Mediterranean coast, often aboard vessels poorly equipped for the trip. Many of them attempt the voyage to flee war and poverty in Africa and the Middle East.

More than 10,000 people have arrived on Italian shores from Libya since last weekend alone, according to the Italian coast guard.

Many die each year while attempting the voyage, often when boats capsized. Last year at least 3,200 died trying to make the trip. Since 2000, according to the International Organization for Migration, almost 22,000 people have died fleeing across the Mediterranean.

The IOM reported Thursday the latest boat to sink in trying to make the journey. Only four people survived from the original 45 on board, bringing the estimated death toll so far this year close to a thousand.

Attacker mot judar har exploderat 2014

Israeli Researchers: Attacks Against Jews Spiked in 2014 – Ariel David
Anti-Semitic attacks around the world rose by 38% in 2014, according to a report released Wednesday by Tel Aviv University. Researchers recorded 766 incidents – ranging from armed assaults to vandalism against synagogues, schools and cemeteries – compared to 554 in 2013. The researchers said the increase in attacks on Jews was partly linked to last summer’s conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza, as well as to a ”general climate of hatred and violence” fostered by the rise of Islamic State in the Middle East.
However, researchers stressed that attacks had been on the rise before the summer and the controversy over Israel’s operation was used as a pretext to attack Jews. ”Synagogues were targeted, not Israeli embassies,” said Dina Porat, a historian who edited the report. (AP-ABC News)

Palestinierna gör så att de själva förlorar Tempelberget

Palestinian Women Join Effort to Keep Jews from Holy Site – Diaa Hadid
The women, covered face-to-toe, surrounded the Jewish group walking through the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and shouted: ”The army of Muhammad is coming!” ”We are guardians for the sake of God,” said Mona, 57. ”Everybody must protect Al Aqsa so the Jews don’t take it.” The compound is the holiest site in Judaism and the third holiest place in Islam.
In 2010 the Israel-based Islamic Movement began busing in thousands of Palestinians for prayers, encouraged school excursions, and started study circles, paying participants to keep vigil all day. The circles were opened to women in 2012. Micky Rosenfeld, an Israeli police spokesman, said that in recent weeks the women have progressed from chanting at Jewish visitors to chasing them; some who are barred from the site stand outside the gate and shout at Jews as they exit.
