Netanyahu tries to head off Iran’s machinations after Obama empowers Tehran as favored Mid East ally
DEBKAfile Exclusive Analysis Mar 1, 2015, 10:37 PM (IDT)

Almost the last words Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu heard Sunday, March 1, when he took off for Washington to address Congress on Iran was: “Don’t do it!” They came from a group of 180 ex-IDF military officers who tried to stop the speech lest it damage relations with the US. debkafile: Their protest should be addressed to the White House where, for six years, Barack Obama has eroded those relations.  Netanyahu’s speech is just a tardy attempt to check Iran’s malignant machinations which go forward without restraint.

Egyptian President Abdel-Fatteh El-Sisi has massed his troops for all-out war on ISIS strongholds in Libya, the first Arab ruler to challenge Islamist terrorists in a fellow Arab country, debkafile reports. His initiative dramatizes the spillover of the Islamist State’s threat across the Middle East, and the ineffectiveness of the US-led anti-terror coalition’s efforts in Iraq and Syria. Egyptian commando and marine forces stand ready for imminent sea landings to seize Darnah and wipe out the Islamist militias, coupled with an air and ground campaign against their hideouts in Sinai.

DarkNet is the hidden bottom floor of the legal, public worldwide web. Extensively used by sophisticated criminal organizations and spooks. Espionage and law enforcement agencies pretend this traffic is out of their control.

DEBKAfile Exclusive Analysis Feb 22, 2015, 3:01 PM (IDT)

The US and Iran are in a last-ditch effort to rescue their nuclear diplomacy before it falls into deep crisis.  The Obama administration may have hit the limit of its concessions; Iran won’t give way on centrifuges and enriched uranium stocks; while Binyamin Netanyahu nixes the existing US-Iranian draft.

IranAir transfers foreign troops to Syria
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report Feb 21, 2015

debkafile  reveals that a large-scale Iranian airlift is flying thousands of Shiite fighters to the Syrian Mediterranean port of Latakia to reinforce Syrian forces defeated in the last 48 hours by rebels at Aleppo and to save them from retreat. This development is seriously disturbing Israel’s army chiefs. They reckon that Tehran’s promptness in sending over thousands of foreign troops to save Assad’s army, would apply equally to a possible setback in the offensive led by Iranian Revolutionary Guards officers to capture the Golan town of Quneitra across from Israel’s lines.

The murder weapon, Alberto Nisman's borrowed Bersa .22
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report Feb 19, 2015

A special debkafile investigation has discovered that the Argentine-Jewish prosecutor Natalio Alberto Nisman, 51, was murdered on Jan. 18 by an Iranian agent posing as a defector calling himself “Abbas Haqiqat-Ju.” The killer struck hours before Nisman showed the Argentine parliament evidence of a cover-up by President Cristina Kirchner of Iran’s complicity in the country’s worst terrorist attack, the 1994 bombing of the Buenos Aires Jewish community center, in which 85 people died, two years after 29 people were killed by a blast at the Israeli embassy. Nisman’s evidence ultimately proved Iran's culpability in the two terrorist attacks.
 

Obama and Khamenei still at odds
DEBKAfile Special Report Feb 17, 2015

Accusing Binyamin Netanyahu of leaking “sensitive” information on US nuclear negotiations with Iran skews the fact of an almost done deal between US President Barack Obama and Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani. It wants only Iran’s paramount leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei endorsement. In attempting to bring him round, Washington is using media spin tactics which Netanyahu’s opponents have seized on to accuse him of sabotaging relations with Washington. Netanyahu is not alone in objecting to Obama’s Iran policy. So too do the Saudis, some Gulf emirates and Egypt.
