At Warsaw parley, Israel’s anti-Iran front is stretched to Yemen, Iraq

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, while seated next to Yemen’s Foreign Minister Khaled al-Yamani on Feb. 14, hailed the Warsaw conference as “historic” – if only for the unprecedented seating arrangements. The US, which co-hosted the Conference for Middle East Peace and Security as a major vehicle for the Trump administration’s campaign against Iran, most likely engineered those arrangements.  The event targeted the opponents of the anti-Iran campaign, at home and in Europe. It was also intended to boost Saudi Arabia, whose armed forces have been battling Iran-backed Yemeni Houthi insurgents for four years, and the United Arab Emirate, whose army is fighting alongside the Saudis in Yemen.

For Israel, the event served as a huge campaign boon for Prime Minister Netanyahu whose Likud is campaigning for re-election on April 9. He was shown easily hobnobbing with world leaders on an international stage, notably in amicable first-time encounters with Arab rulers. His seating alongside the Yemeni foreign minister flashed around the media, the day after he met with Omani Foreign Minister Yusuf bin Alawi bin Abdullah.
That juxtaposition also carries a price. Secretary of State Pompeo used it as a symbol of the US administration’s expectations of Israel for a larger military role alongside the US, Saudi Arabia and the UAE in the Yemeni war. The Houthi insurgents are supported not only by Iran but also by Hizballah, Israel’s arch-enemies. Until now Israeli assistance to the Yemeni government went through Saudi Arabia.

In his speech to the Warsaw gathering, Pompeo stressed that the Middle East would not achieve peace and stability without confronting Iran. “It’s just not possible,” he said. They are operating in Lebanon, Syria and Iraq; they support the Houthis in Yemen, as well as Hamas and Hizballah, all of whom pose real threats. The Iranians must be pushed out of those places,” said Pompeo. For the IDF and its intelligence army, the penny has dropped. Netanyahu returns from Warsaw with new Israeli war fronts outside its borders, following on his praise of Arab foreign ministers for speaking with “exceptional power, clarity and unity against the shared threat posed by the Iranian regime.”
In Washington, President Donald Trump faced a hostile front to the campaign he is leading internationally against Iran when the House Democratic majority passed a resolution on Thursday for ending US military support for the Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen. The measure passed 248 to 177, and was supported by 230 Democrats and 18 Republicans.

    Many of the Children of Abraham recognize the Iranian threat to establish a new Persian Empire and are joining forces to resist.

      Israel joining forces with the Arab world is the inevitable solution to all of the region’s problems. Israeli technology, intelligence, and military acumen, combined with Arabian land and resources presents a formidable challenge to anyone trying to dominate the region, including Iran, Russia, UK, EU, and others.

      This joining of forces will happen out of necessity at one point or another, so there is absolutely no need for Israel to offer another inch of territory to the Arabs. Stand strong and they will come around.

        Jacob, you should write for a magazine on the side. Very insightful comment!

          You people are idiots. Israeli people have more cultural similarities and shared values with Iranians than Arabs – but Bibi makes some alliances of convenience with a handful of Arab dictators and you are all tickled pink. Making alliances with corrupt dictators who are loathed by their own people is not a smart long term strategy. The only reason Iran is an enemy of the west is because the US and the UK overthrew Iran’s democratically elected western liberal government and replaced it with a dictatorship so they could loot the country’s oil wealth.

          If you want to ally with Arabs against Persians, at least be realistic about the potential pitfalls.

      May there be a new Cyrus arising in Persia. Certainly they will be defeated when ROSH and her allies are destroyed by “a great earthquake in the land of Israel. 20 The fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the beasts of the field, every creature that moves along the ground, and all the people on the face of the earth will tremble at my presence. The mountains will be overturned, the cliffs will crumble and every wall will fall to the ground. 21 I will summon a sword against Gog on all my mountains, declares YHWH. Every man’s sword will be against his brother. 22 I will execute judgment on him with plague and bloodshed; I will pour down torrents of rain, hailstones and burning sulfur on him and on his troops and on the many nations with him. 23 And so I will show my greatness and my holiness, and I will make myself known in the sight of many nations. “

        Omamia 3
        16. And lo, the hunter of the east hath snared the sultan’s turret in a noose of light.
        17. Verily, like a whirlwind from the sun, yon Qariah of tidings doth fly on whirling wheels and cast a folded missile, yea, to thy very door; two suns in cloud overflow thy table and thy grain shall be scorched in electric fire.
        Omamia 23
        3. in the seventh month, the king of the west with great ships and many warriors shall go to the king of the north; and the king of the north shall move against the king of the south, and shall overflow, even to the very doors.
        4. and the abomination of desolation shall cover all the land.

    Netanyahu’s Freudian Slip – Mr Iran’s mistake of his life

    Under existential stress secondary to his failed ‘Kahanist-Wahabi NATO’ Clean Break Drive on Iran and incoming indictments from Mandelblit and Mueller, Netanyahu makes the mistake of his life in Warsaw and spills his Id beans that his sole aim is a triggered war on Iran

    • Feb 14, 2019 @ 17:16 at 17:16

      Meanwhile Rep Ilhan Omar cracks Elliot Abrams wide open, and this ‘Kahanist Wahabi NATO-enthusiast’ (aka a rank ‘Neocon’) gets red-faced apoplectic on the stand

      What does this mean in strategic terms? – Meltdown time for the Israel/Israeli Lobby Mob, the Undzer Shtik, the Washington Mob/Blob – in other words it’s a Festivus for the rest of us

    The smoke & mirrors of political games aside, it remains “Blessed are the peacemakers”. The USA and probably Israel still owe the people of Iran an apology for the regime change resulting from “Operation Ajax”, 1953. That was the start of bad relations between the three of them, and unquestionably USA, Britain, and probably Israel are at fault.

    • Feb 14, 2019 @ 18:25 at 18:25

      The US enabled regime change in Iran in 1953?

      Then it’s time to repeat regime change in Iran in 2019.

      The Persian people are sick of the fascist ayatoolahs and their “mahdi” death cult.

      The fascist ayatoolas will end up like Haman and his sons.

      • Feb 14, 2019 @ 18:46 at 18:46

        Sorry marg; the ayatollahs are the direct result of the 1953 re-change. You want to double down and get more of the same? Let the persians mind their own business, if they hate their own regime so much.

        • Feb 15, 2019 @ 8:30 at 8:30

          Big mistake – the Persians aren’t minding their own business – they are getting involved andnpushing forward all over the place.

    The secret Iranian plan to choke their botched Islamic revolution from the inside is working better than expected. Rouhani plays his role so well, you might think he’s side with the mullahs.
    But, there is not yet a Coalition as in the case of Iraq.
    We shall wait a little more.

    If Saudi and the UAE were serious about confronting Iran, then they would attack Iran with their military might. The Gulf countries have invested heavily in arms and aircraft and so it is up to them, not up to Israel, to lead a war against the Islamic State of Iran. It is for the Sunni states to lead a war against the Shia of Iran.

      • Feb 14, 2019 @ 23:47 at 23:47

        More anti-semitic mythology about American media supporting Israel. Not one word on the heinous war crime committed against Israel last Thursday, but they will surely train their cameras on the Gaza border next month to paint Israel as an aggressor. Not to worry. When we put the dog Arafat to death, the media will be forced to report the first death sentence since Eichmann and the reason for it. Chief terrorist Abbas will defend the rapist animal, and expose himself as the two-faced war criminal that he is.

    Unless and until the Arabs reject any claims by any Arabs the Land of Israel west of the Jordan River, and defund all anti Isreal and anti Jewish activities world wide, and fund pro Israel and pro Jewish Islamic reconciliation, Israel is making a grotesque mistake.
