Gaza flotilla: Turkey accused of behaving like Iran by Israel

Israeli officials pointed to links between the leading political party and IHH, the organisation which owned the Mavi Marmara, the flagship of the aid flotilla on which commandos shot nine Turkish activists dead, and which Israel has linked to al-Qaeda.

Avigdor Lieberman, foreign minister, said that Turkey was "simply of no interest" and that Turkey may once have been a friend of Israel but "internal changes in Turkish society" had caused the split, as they had between Israel and Iran in 1979.

So now Turkey is like Iran uh? Are you gonna put a nuclear sub there too to be able to nuke them just in case?

They said Mossad at the time, pinpointed Nasrallah's activity but he managed to get away with murder after crossing into Syrian territory.

So you just want to murder him on Lebanese territory uh? I call BS. Israel kill people in foreign countries all the time, why now back down? BS.

Israel faces child-abuse claims

An international children's rights charity has said it has evidence that Palestinian children held in Israeli custody have been subjected to sexual abuse in an effort to extract confessions from them.

The Geneva-based Defence for Children International (DCI) has collected 100 sworn affadavits from Palestinian children who said they were mistreated by their Israeli captors.

Fourteen of the statements say they were sexually abused or threatened with sexual assault to pressure them into confessions.

DCI officials say that when they complain to the Israeli military about the treatment of the children, their allegations are dismissed as untrue.

Now the organisation has submitted its evidence to the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Torture to try and increase pressure on Israel to stamp out the alleged abuse.

Not surprising, they do the same thing at Guantanamo.

Iran's Revolutionary Guards are willing to provide a military escort to cargo ships trying to break the Israeli blockade of Gaza, a spokesman for Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was quoted as saying Sunday. The news was carried by Reuters, quoting Iranian news agency Mehr.

"Iran's navy forces are ready to escort the peace flotilla to Gaza with all their powers and capabilities," announced Ali Shirazi, Khamenei's representative inside the Revolutionary Guards.

Israel warns Lebanon over Gaza aid

A senior Israeli military official has warned the Beirut government against allowing an aid ship to depart Lebanon for the besieged Gaza Strip.

"I say clearly to the government of Lebanon: You are responsible for the sea vessels leaving your ports with a clear and known intention of trying to break the naval blockade on Gaza,” Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said on Thursday.

The warning came days after a group of female Lebanese activists announced a plan to send an aid ship loaded with medical supplies to Gaza.

Israel said that its navy would not allow the boat to reach Gaza.

This could give the excuse for Israel/Hezbollah to start a war.

Lebanon, Egypt condemn Israeli threat

The Lebanese and Egyptian premiers have condemned a new Israeli threat against Beirut, saying it "might have dire consequences” for Tel Aviv.

Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri and his Egyptian counterpart Ahmed Nazif took the stance after Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak warned the Beirut government against allowing an aid ship to depart Lebanon for the besieged Gaza Strip.

"We'll breach the Gaza blockade," the Iranian president vowed.
The Iranian Red Crescent vessels will carry "volunteer marines" of the Revolutionary Guards "who will teach the Israelis a lesson."

If true, and it's probably is, could start a war.

Iran to retaliate if planes, ships inspected: speaker

Iran's Majlis (Parliament) Speaker Ali Larijani warned the West and certain countries with retaliation if they try to inspect Iranian planes and ships following last week's UN Security Council sanctions resolution against Tehran, the English language satellite Press TV reported on Wednesday.

"I am warning the U.S. and certain adventurous countries that in case they plan to inspect the cargo of Iranian ships and planes, they should rest assured that we will do the same in the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman (with their ships)," Larijani was quoted as saying.

Could also start a war.

And some more propaganda :
Iran could fire 'hundreds' of missiles at Europe: Gates
That's so utter BS. First Iran doesn't have ``hundreds of missiles`` capables of reaching Europe. Second, even if they had, they would use them against Israel, Saudi Arabia, US bases in the middle-east... they wouldn't have enough to go around anyway. Not to mention, those missiles are a joke in the delivery system, since they are liquid fueled, since their guidance system is a joke and their warheads is weak too, has proven with a study by experts I posted on this very thread.

Gates made the comment when asked by Republican Senator Saxby Chambliss if he supported deploying improved missile defenses, including plans for an upgraded SM-3 missile by 2020, even if Russia objected.

Gates said he backed the 10-year plan, despite possible resistance from Moscow, saying the new missile defenses "would give us the ability to protect our troops, our bases, our facilities and our allies in Europe."

The missile shield is to have the option to carry out a first strike against Russia and nothing else.

Lebanese leaders delay defense strategy talks

Rival Lebanese politicians on Thursday postponed until June 19 talks on a national defence strategy that would incorporate the arms of Hezbollah, the government said.

Interesting. If Hezbollah did include it's weapons in the Lebanese army, Israel wouldn't be able to cry about Hezbollah nor be able to violate their airspace, and the UNIFIL mission would probably end.

Netanyahu: Naval blockade on Gaza will not be lifted

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said during a meeting of Likud ministers on Sunday that he supports easing the three-year blockade Israel has imposed on the Gaza Strip, but that he would not approve the lifting of the naval blockade on the Hamas-ruled territory.

Prime minister says committee probing flotilla raid is Israel's best possible option as it 'strengthens our ability to fight in the international political arena', but also warns against 'surprises', even from allies
You're a paranoid nut.

Iran defies sanctions with gas pipelines

Three days after the U.N. Security Council imposed new U.S.-led sanctions on Iran over its nuclear program, Tehran signed a $7 billion natural gas pipeline deal with U.S. ally Pakistan in defiance of Western efforts to bring its economy to its knees.

Iran is also gearing up to make a move to participate in the giant $11 billion Nabucco gas pipeline project to pump Central Asian gas to Europe via the Islamic republic's new found friend Turkey, NATO's only Muslim member.

If Iran succeeds in joining Nabucco, that would be a big setback for Russia, which backed the sanctions. Moscow fervently opposes the plan to pump up to 31 billion cubic meters of gas a year to Europe, which currently is heavily dependent on Russia for its energy.

Hmmm interesting. Russia screwed Iran over with the S-300s... so they are saying, screw you Russia.

Maybe the Lebanese army have figured out that the only way to really stop a full invasion of Lebanon by Israel is to side with Hezbollah? After all, all indicates that in the next conflict, Israel will not only bomb the south where Hezbollah is, but the whole country and will try to take out the Lebanese government... so they better do everything they can to protect themselves and their country...after all the army is for that.

More than 12 million Iranians have been organised into the paramilitary Bassij, according to the force's acting commander.
If true, that's a boatload of people... even more than China's army... or North Korea's army... they would rain hell on US troops in Afghanistan/Iraq...

The confirmation comes as earlier last month, the UNIFIL commander reaffirmed that the UN peacekeepers had found no long-rage artillery such as Scud missiles in southern Lebanon.

According to military source, the IDF was closely following events in Lebanon to see when and if the two ships will set sail for the Gaza Strip. Israel is particularly concerned with the Lebanese flotilla due to the short distance between the countries. The ships will reportedly carry women and medical supplies.

Lebanon Gives 'Julia' Green Light to Sail to Cyprus Amid Israeli Pressure to Stop Departure of Ships to Gaza
And so it begins.

Hizbullah, Hamas, Iran to meet in Damascus

Palestinian opposition factions, Hizbullah officials and a delegation of Iranians, will soon meet in Damascus, the Kuwaiti Al-Anba daily newspaper reported on Monday.

The meeting, according to the anonymous source quoted in the paper, will take place in late June, under official Syrian patronage, in an effort to activate resistance in the region in light of an expected Israeli offensive against Iran or against Hizbullah in Lebanon.

Yep better prepare, the warhawks want it bad.

US Defense Secretary Robert Gates on Sunday refused to address the notion of having to contain a nuclear armed Iran, saying US efforts were aimed at preventing it from acquiring atomic weapons.
Meaning WAR is on the agenda, as Bilderberg wants.

Israeli municipal authorities have approved a move to destroy 22 Palestinian homes in East al-Quds (Jerusalem) to make room for construction of a tourist center.
I'm sure they gonna love this.

An army commander says Iran has taken measures to strengthen the country's passive air defense systems, especially in the Persian Gulf region.
I hope you do...

The US armada have reached the persian gulf.

President Barack Obama ordered all US missile interceptors in the Middle East to go on war alert in the second week of June, including batteries aboard US Sixth Fleet vessels on the Mediterranean and the US Fifth Fleet in the Persian Gulf.

Pakistan's Foreign Minister says his country needs energy, emphasizing that Islamabad will continue a gas pipeline deal with Iran despite sanctions on Tehran.
Good for them.

And remember a few things...

- Venezuela said they would cut off oil to the US if Iran was ever attacked.
- China said it would be considered an attack on them if their oil flow was ever cut...meaning if someone blocks the strait of hormutz or bomb Iranian oil's war
- China have billions in investments in Syria and Iran...
- The next moonless periods in the middle-east are June 26/July 26..perfect for air campaigns.
- The massive bunker buster bomb is set to be ready ``by July 2010``. Meaning it's probably already up and installed on B-2s ready to strike.

And while this whole situation is happening...

It really seems it's gonna kick off soon... Even FORBES is saying there will be war soon.

There will be war

Meanwhile, the Obama administration has ordered a massive buildup of U.S. forces in the Persian Gulf starting with Carrier Strike Group 10, headed by the USS Harry S. Truman aircraft carrier. Just last Friday an armada of more than 12 U.S. and Israeli warships passed through the Suez canal amid extreme security provided by Egypt. The ships are headed for the Red Sea and from there to the Persian Gulf. Another four U.S. warships will be making their way to the region to join the Strike Group. The Americans have also conducted joint air and naval strike practices with France and the U.K. under the command of American forces, while Germany is sending warships to the area, also under the command of American forces.

Both Israel and the U.S. have positioned nuclear-armed submarines in the region. Israel has conducted multiple tests on its missile defense systems to protect its citizens once war breaks out. U.S. and Israeli Special Forces have been deployed inside Iran to investigate potential targets and gauge the willingness of Iranians to overthrow the current regime. Russia--up to now a key backer of the regime--recently announced a freeze in sales of its S-300 missiles to Iran. Vladimir Putin confirmed this himself last week.

Iran, for its part, is also preparing for an all-out war in the Middle East. Before even a vote was cast at the U.N. on recent sanctions, Iranian leaders had ordered the Guards to build up. Reinforcement troops have been dispatched to the Iraqi and Afghanistan borders. Hezbollah has been armed to the teeth, and Syria was presented with missiles carrying larger payloads and longer range.

An Iranian aid ship is to leave the Gulf port of Bandar Abbas for a 14-day journey to Gaza at the end of this week, a Red Crescent official was quoted as saying by ISNA news agency on Tuesday.
So another Iranian ship leaving for Gaza uh?

Lebanon said on Tuesday it would hold Israel responsible for any attack, in response to Israeli warnings that it would use "all necessary force" to stop aid boats planning to sail to blockaded Gaza.

One of two boats, the "Naji al-Ali," on Monday received Lebanon's green light to depart for Cyprus on the first leg of the trip to Gaza. It is currently docked in the northern port of Tripoli.

A second ship, the "Mariam", also plans to carry aid to Gaza in another attempt to break the four-year siege of Gaza with some 50 women activists on board, including 30 Lebanese.

The "Mariam" has not yet been given Lebanese clearance to sail.

Israel’s Planned Attack on Iran from Caucasus Base

A week ago, Israel leaked to the press that they had permission from Saudi Arabia to use their air space to attack Iran. The Saudi’s quickly denied this. The effort on Israel’s part was a ruse to cover their real plans, to attack from the Republic of Georgia, close to Iran’s northern border. However, the breakdown in relations with Turkey after miscalculating the response to their Flotilla raid on a Turkish ship in international waters may have ended this operation.

Interesting article for sure.
