Netanyahu Urges International 'Red Line' To Stop Iran

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has urged major world powers to set "a clear red line" for Iran's nuclear program.

Speaking during a cabinet meeting in Jerusalem, Netanyahu said the international community had not done enough to deter Iran from pursuing a program that Israel and the West believe is aimed at producing nuclear weapons.

"The Iranians are using the talks with the world powers to gain time and to advance their nuclear program. I believe we must state the truth," Netanyahu said. "The international community is not laying down a clear red line for Iran and Iran is not seeing an international determination to stop its nuclear program.

"Unless Iran sees this clear red line and this clear determination," he continued, "it will not stop advancing its nuclear program, and Iran must not have nuclear weapons."

Talks With Obama

Netanyahu's remarks come as Israel is seeking to win a pledge from the United States that it will act militarily if Iran does not back down on its uranium-enrichment program.

The Israeli premier is due to reiterate his concerns about Iran at the UN General Assembly later this month.

He is also expected to hold talks with U.S. President Barack Obama during his visit to the United States.

Israel, which is currently the only nuclear power in the Middle East, has hinted at growing frustration with Washington for its failure to threaten military action against Iran.

Obama has insisted he will not allow Iran to build atomic weapons and that all options are on the table.

But General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff, has suggested Washington would not be drawn into conflict with Iran if Israel chose to launch an attack.

The United States and other nations have imposed an economic sanctions regime on Iran in hopes of persuading it to halt -- or make transparent -- the more suspect aspects of its nuclear work.

Tehran insists its nuclear program is for civilian purposes only, but has routinely denied international inspectors access to its more sensitive nuclear facilities.

Report Has 'Little Impact'

A United Nations report said on August 20 that Iran had more than doubled the number of centrifuges in its fortified bunker at Fordow since May.

The report, released by the UN's International Atomic Energy Agency, was released as Iran was hosting representatives from 120 states at a meeting of the Nonaligned Movement.

But Netanyahu said the report had little impact on either Iran or the NAM meeting.

"The most serious thing is that this [Nonaligned Movement meeting] happened as the [International Atomic Energy Agency] report was published last week. The report confirms what I have been saying for a long time," he said. "International sanctions are a burden on Iran's economy, but they are not in any way delaying the advancement of Iran's nuclear program."

Iranian media on September 2 cited Mohammad Ali Assoudi, a brigadier general in the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, as saying that Iran was prepared to launch a retaliatory strike against Israel if it attacked Iran.

Ah the american poodle coerced by the crazy nutjobs and nauseous warmongers of the israeli so-called government: aren't these people pathetic? The US political class is so bribed and coerced by the zionist far-right donors and apologists that they are the laughing stock of the real free world. Arbitrary sanctions which are nothing more than a collective punishment on the whole iranian people are just another disgrace from our poodles.

Iran's threaten?
I cannot understand that a country which does not agree control of AEIA on its nuclear activities speaks of other country which activities are under control of AEIA. Some modesty please!

Its Word is prisoner
Its letters are hidden still inside the ink.
One line of thought and few metaphors are
here to catapult Its Portrait beyond words.

Time for Awakening

Since 9/11 it's the War on Terror
One "false flag" attack so called by error
Blair, Bush, and Israel had a Pact in store
Their next surprise is knocking at your door
A hidden vile Idea from those who want "more"
will use you and your Belief for the next World War
As "chosen people" gain while Humankind loses
Greed wins not by the swords but by the words of Moses
Daring is to tell you when, better then to tell you rhymes
could not side with either one to get ready for our times
to look beyond and past today to seek for a solution
one only hope is there for you and spells Wavevolution

...................

A new type of Revolution wins with the ultimate weapon
Your Mind
…………

9/11 ("false flag" attack planned by Bush & co.)
7/7 "false flag" in London (Blair seals the Pact with Bush)
The War in Iraq
The next expansion of the territory of Israel.
The future collapse of the World financial system

All these are not individual events but instead
part of the Neocons Plan.

Once again, the next US presidential election will be fixed.
Mitt Romney will be elected even though Barack Obama
will have received more votes during this election.
The political assassination will be perpetrated by Bush hiding behind Crossroads GPS, the most influential group of Neocons.

The Neocons will have Mitt Romney elected to first use him and then let him fall easy prey. All blames and responsibilities will fall on the new Mormon president for the events already planned.

The new World War of Religion is already a done deal behind the backs of all people which will be forced to fight for their own Countries in their obligation as citizens

This next War will be the excuse to completely abolish the concept of Equality and all human rights associated with it

For this reason, the conflict, whichever mask it may wear,
must be redefined from the start:
pro or against Equality.

First in history, this worldwide crisis was provoked through
a terror event (9/11) plotted by a US president, George Bush.
This was to destabilize the equilibrium of all Countries
and trigger a chain of events almost unavoidable
all of them part of the same Plan.

Many simultaneous rebellions stirred up in Arab Countries
will benefit in the end only the State of Israel
with the expansion of its territory
while...
in Europe and in the US, the financial resources "like magic" will disappear through bailouts, tax cuts and elaborated emergency maneuvers which will be ruled only to appear beneficial for those Countries but instead appositely designed for their collapse
(except for England that will push Europe over the precipice).

It is closer than you think

Stock markets and Treasury bonds will ...... "freeze",
the old economy will get to .... "the last stop"
and the Internet will have ... "its plug pulled".

Massive poverty will bring chaos and anarchy
while the lack of effective governments will set the stage for one
World Tyranny

It will be just from chaos that one voice will rise
with the promise to fix all and everyone.
That will be the forked tongue of the
New World Order

There is only one alternative Solution.

When US secretary of Defence Leon Panetta was asked by CBS on 8 JAN 12 whether Iran was actually trying to develop a nuclear weapon, he responded: ‘No. But we know that they’re trying to develop a nuclear capability.’

A nuclear capability? This, as it turns out, is not exactly a threat to world peace. In fact, it goes hand-in-hand with the development of nuclear power as a civilian energy source. Iran is doing no more than what Brazil or Argentina are also doing by developing a civilian nuclear sector – and both Brazil and Argentina, like Iran, do not permit full International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspections.
