Netanyahu is ratcheting up Israel's defensive measures. In addition to boosting emergency services, an Israeli civil defense spokesman is hoping that cities will copy what Tel Aviv has done at the Habima National Theater whose lot has been made into a makeshift bomb shelter that is four stories underground and capable of accommodating 1600 people. [5]


This developing scenario looks very much like Israel is being given the go-ahead to attack first with US providing back-up forces if Iran fights back -- which it will undoubtedly do.


Accusing Iran of developing a nuclear bomb that their supposedly-crazy we-want-to-be-annihilated leaders will then drop on Israel and the United States has been shown to be effective in winning popular support for going to war.


If acquiring a bomb is simply a decoy to winning approval for war, what are the real reasons that Israel and the United States want to start another one? Do US corporations, and some foreign- based ones, want control of the oil? Do the Zionists want a cover of chaos for expelling the Palestinians and achieving their long-term goal of having all of Palestine?


We can be certain of one thing: Gandhi's statement that an "eye-for-an-eye" way of solving disputes will make the whole world blind will become a reality.
