Israelis talk about plans to attack Iran
Nov 03, 2011
The Debka File reports denials by Netanyahu. Keep in mind that Debka is an outlet for the Israeli Intelligence and may have ulterior motives in its reports:
Those reports are unfounded, debkafile's military sources report. Binyamin Netanyahu's inner cabinet of eight is in fact trying to determine the usefulness of abandoning its longstanding policy of nuclear ambiguity at this time. An attack is not on its current agenda.
November promises to be an especially critical month.
The report on Iran the International Atomic Agency in Vienna is due to publish next Tuesday, Nov. 8 is generally expected to reveal in close detail the advances the Islamic Republic has made toward producing a nuclear weapon. Most of this will not be news to the parties which follow Iran's progress toward this goal. However, the formal exposure of the scale of this program and Iran's indictment by the nuclear watchdog is intended to shock world opinion, thereby helping US President Barack Obama to go all the way with really tough sanctions, such as international boycotts of Iranian fuel and the Iranian state bank.
Tehran has warned that these sanctions would be deemed an act of war.
