Netanyahu: Israel ponders pre-emptive operation to prevent Iranian cruise missile strike

Israel’s quandary over whether to launch a pre-emptive strike to deter Iran from a missile assault, like its attack on Saudi Arabia, was revealed by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Thursday, Oct. 10, at a memorial ceremony for the fallen in the 1973 Yom Kippur war. The pre-emptive option is very rarely mentioned publicly by the prime minister, who also serves as defense minister. This time, it indicated that Israel may decide not to wait for an attack before initiating a preventive strike against missile bases in Iran, where preparations are going forward to launch those weapons against Israel. 
DEBKAfile’s military sources add: The IDF chiefs who attended the ceremony are fully aware that a preventive operation on those bases would unleash an all-out Israel-Iran missile and drone war that could go on for weeks or months, with deadly escalations. Iran’s satellites, Hizballah in Lebanon, Iraqi Shiite militias in Syria and Iraq and the Palestinian Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza, would play active roles in this conflict.

Netanyahu went on to assert that, while we do not aspire to stand alone, we must remember our situation in the 1973 war when US assistance arrived only when it was nearly over. Today, too, while we appreciate the important US assistance, which has gained in recent years, and the immense economic pressure the US clamps on Iran, “at the same time, we must never forget to apply this fundamental guideline: Israel will defend itself with its own forces against any threat.”

The IDF, he said, is fully prepared to stand up to any threat, whether by defensive or offensive action. “We are armed with overwhelming strength in weaponry and spirit. That is the immensely valuable legacy bequeathed to us by the generation that fought in the Yom Kippur war.”

DEBKAfile: The prime minister may have derived encouragement for his fighting speech from the events leading up to the Turkish operation in northeastern Syria on Wednesday, Oct. 9. Ankara, Washington and Moscow were in close consultation ahead of this operation, but Tehran was strictly excluded.

On Sept. 27, DEBKAfile ran an exclusive item revealing that Israel was mulling a pre-emptive strike against Iran.

        If he was smart he would never let iran win the fight in syria. Now this blah blah about preventing war is just for preventing jews to ask about bibi leadership to handle that key strategic historical matter. Even those air strikes against iran facilities in syria is useless, because these attacks are happening after iran win that war. It’s very simple.

      In 1973, Israel was Attacked by a Surprised Preemptive Strike by Egypt, Jordan & Syria. President Nixon came through providing NATO Tanks, Jet Fighters, & Naval Intelligence to the IDF. This Stopped The Arab Rain by Turning the Tide of War. America responded to USSR Threats to Intervene save Egypt. Nixon was under Impeachment Investigations just like President Trump today. The Same Scenario can happen again as Russia is in Alliance with Iran & Turkey with Proxy Fighters in Gaza, Lebanon, Yemen, Iraq, & Syria.

      Israel is a lost case.

      The only way the Jewish state can prevail is by nuking Hezbollah in Lebanon.

      The nuclear fallout will make life impossible in next door Israel.

      Case closed.

      The rest is all short-term political machinations to make money or stay in power.

      Both Jews and Muslims are intractable and utterly hateful people towards everybody else.

      So go for a stroll in the park.

      Guys seriously why do you believe that Iran must attack you? It has not invaded another country in centuries. Yet you bomb and bomb its its forces that are invited and involved in counter terrorism activities which you openly gloat about.

      So yes i believe is very likely that these forces will eventually have to retaliate very strongly against you, but do i not think that Iran is going to invade you and i also believe that if you stop attacking your neighbors that they will stop wanting to get even with you.

      Equality believe that your actions are creating enemies at home and abroad which threaten both you and Jews living in other countries.

          Iran is on record as been against Zionism. Many Jews are equally opposed to Zionism this does not mean that they want to destroy Israel or the Jewish people. Zionism is an apartheid system which unless one is pro discrimination should never support. Iran has the largest Jewish population outside of Israel in the Middle East. This Jewish population has been there for well over 2000 years so i dont accept that Iran wants to hurt the Jewish people.

        Tommy, one thing we as Jews have learned is that when someone says we are going to annihilate you as a country or religion that we have to take it very seriously. Nobody believed Hitler would do what he said he wanted to do to the Jews. Hard lesson to forget with Iran saying daily that Israel is a cancer that must be eradicated. You may not believe they will try, but then why do they arm Hamas? Or Hezbollah? Or …..

          No offense but Zionism is an apartheid system and as such i consider it to be disease. However this does not mean that i hate Jews. There is a very big difference in opposing negative actions and wanting to remove said negative action to wanting to harm the individual. Was it wrong for the world to oppose apartheid? If the general consensus is yes then you have your answer. The problem with Zionism is that its been twisted into now been seen as all things Jewish.

          Henry Kissinger is on record as saying that Israel will soon cease to be a State with the next few years. Does this mean that Henry Kissinger wants to destroy you? The answer obviously is no, he can see as I’m sure the Iranians can see that any state built upon a system of hostility to others cant survive.
          Iran has the largest Jewish population outside of Israel in the Middle East. This Jewish population has been there for well over 2000 years so i dont accept that Iran wants to hurt the Jewish. However i can understand the Jewish hysteria on this matter due to chased out of almost every country that they have ever lived. But this does not give you the right to take out your fears on others by attacking and trying to subjugate all your neighbors.

            The proposition that Zionism is deemed to promote an apartheid regime when it is the only democracy in an Islam dominated middle east, and that Israel is the aggressor in altercations with its neighbours, is probably one of the most stupid comments I have read for some considerable time.

Did you know that religious Jews are oppressed to Zionism? Did you know that almost every Jew was opposed to Zionism when this political ideology was created?

            Yes, the same people who thought Jews should stay in Europe, also thought that Israel was a bad idea. They were wrong, as history has shown. Jews who speak against Israel today are a fifth column minority, loathed by the overwhelming majority of Jewish people.

The Kurds disagree among themselves as they are resilient. Another reason why getting along is the first step.

        It is not going to happen. What they have to learn is not to be used again by US and Israeli and try to achieve autonomy where they leave. They can not even get on with each other. I don’t think Iranian Kurd will follow Abdullah Ocallan personality cult. or Iraqi kurd being dictated by Kurd in Tukey. They are very tribal. It will be very hard task.

    If you want to do something to Iran, never talk about it or give any hints that you may do it. Only talk about it when it’s over.

    With all due respect, from the deepest humanism, we have to slaughter the Persian murderers … It is the only language they understand. Either you kill them now, or they will kill many Jews. Jerusalem must strike hard to leave the Ayatollahs “paralyzed.”
    Good luck and good hunting!

      Iranians Leadership is the Problem not the Persian People. If Leadership is Targeted Persian People would not rise to Protect them, just rise to Protests them. Iran is Part of the Middle East Solution for Peace & Prosperity once the Persian People take their Nation Back from the Shiia Regime!

      Any Israeli attack on Iran without American military involvement is going to be to much for Israel to seriously undertake. Its going to mean a multi front war with potential other Arab nations (Egypt the government does not have public support, Turkey with its current leader especially if he clamed Turkish soldiers were attackedand killed would be popular) and possible Russian involvement.

      So i agree that I find it hard to believe that it is seriously been considered. More than likely this is intended to bloster Bibi’s approval rating ahead of another election. If it was seriously being considered there would be no public discussion of this.

        Mystic, Tucker, & Rivka… Not Wrong & Why The Fight Must Be Surgical On The Shiia Regime! Still, When One Threatens They Usually Run & Hide Once They Realize They Are The Target & Then Persians See It Too & Start To Point Them Out. Happen To Darius, Saddam, & Qaddafi! Iran Shiia Regime Soon Gone & Forgotten!

          I may have agreed with you had there not been thecIran/Iraq war. The Iranians showed that they are not cowards. They fought through mine fields, though chemical weapons attacks against an enemy that was heavily armed and supported throughout the war by the US. So i dont believe that they will turn tail and hide or back down from a fight with Israel once it starts. They have shown themselves to be industrious and very capable. We can see this from their weapons and how well there allies have performed in their wars. This makes Iran a very dangerous country to start a war with unless there was no other possible option. But I’m in the states so this does not impact me other than my concern for friends and some family who have chosen to live in Israel.

      I’ve never seen Tommy post anything that i would consider to be hatred towards the Jewish people. He is definitely no friend of Zionism but then neither am I and I’m Jewish.

      @Jon The Truth is upsetting for you Zionists. You love to conflate everything so that any criticism of Israel is seen as hate speech. You must control the narrative because of the blatant hypocrisy that your narratives are based on. Once its exposed it crumbles. You roaches like the darkness of censorship be that self-censorship or legislation to hide your obvious falsehoods. Your tears are so sweeet 😘

    Speak for yourself Jacob, the problem with Israel is that everyone is right wing. I was raised to think for myself and not be a little drone so i imagine that this is all to much for you to grasp.

      Agreed if this was seriously a option they would not be discussing it. So its its likely for election or to try and keep the Americans in Syria.

      Read ‘Holocaust Victims Accuse’ by Moshe Shonfeld.

      The people you are standing up for sacrificed what they considered non-viable Jews in the Holocaust to justify the creation of the Jewish state.

      And people like Schneerson compared them to a rotten limb that needed to be amputated.

      Barry Chamish exposed the radiating of tens of thousands of Sephardi children coming from Yemen, Syria, Iraq, ect..

      You people are such hypocrites.

        Bad elements within the Jewish polity is our business. Fix your own house before lecturing us. Israel of 2020 is not the same Israel of 1948. Either way, it’s not your problem what the Jewish people do in their own country.

      Netanyahu does not ask Americans to Die for Israel. Israeli mat buy and requests Weapons but they Fight their own battles unlike Iran using Proxies Hizballah, Yemen, Gaza, Iraqi, Syria to Die for Shiia Today, China, Russia, EU in WWI & II, Kuwait Sunnis 1990s, Koreans 1950s, Vietnam 1960s, & Cubans, Philippines, in 1898!

      Correction, Kurds have been given the Middle East the Finger for Centuries & Still Remain Proud, Fight Hard, & Americans fought with them. Israel Prevails No Matter As The Only Democratic Secular Nation in the Middle East and Decides its own Destiny Themselves! Iran Shiia can’t say that and neither can Arabian Sunnis! Persians often needed help as well throughout History!

    Netanyahu is talking tough again and no substance. If he start a war he may escape corruption charges but at what cost to Jewish state? I don’t think he cares, if it get very bad he can always pack and back to his ancestral home Hungary like the rest of them.
