    “Gearing up?” Don’t make me laugh  

    The TOI recently reported, “that the Obama administration will tell Israel next month that it is gearing up for a “window of opportunity” to strike Iran in June.

    In this article Jennifer E Dyer writes:

      Gearing up with what? The carrier that isn’t deployed? The Air Force aircraft that will run out of flying hours in May?”

    Dead in the water: Obama’s military and the Iran nuclear threat

    J E Dyer, Liberty Unyielding

    Two to three years ago, the United States Department of Defense had enough military forces on station in, or readily deployable to, the Persian Gulf region (the “CENTCOM AOR” – area of responsibility – or Southwest Asia, as it is called in the military) to execute a limited strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities without asking Congress for special funding. The military could have performed such an operation “out of hide,” as quickly and seamlessly as the president wanted it to.

    Four to five years ago, moreover, the U.S. had the regional political capital to use our bases in the local nations (e.g., Qatar and Bahrain) to launch and direct such a strike campaign.

    Hagel Without Tears  

    Editorial of The New York Sun | February 27, 2013

    By confirming Charles Hagel as secretary of war, Senator Schumer and the Democratic leadership send a pointed message to the Jewish community in America. It is that if the Jewish defense agencies are not going to stick up publicly for Israel, it is hard to expect others to do so. There is no sugar-coating the point. The Senate has just confirmed the most truculent cabinet officer in respect of Israel in more than a generation because important institutions and leaders shrank from making an issue of it.

    This is a story that is painful for many people to talk about. It would be inaccurate to suggest that the only objection to putting Mr. Hagel in at the war department had to do with Israel. He would be inadequate, even were Israel not an issue. There is a broad sense within the Jewish community — as there is among a number of non-Jewish senators who permitted his nomination to go to the floor — that Mr. Hagel has proven himself incompetent and disingenuous.

    West offers Iran new deal, drops demand to close Fordow  

    By JPOST.COM

    World powers agree to ease sanctions imposed on Tehran if the Islamic Republic suspends uranium enrichment at the nuclear plant, takes measures to constrain ability to quickly resume enrichment, the ‘New York Times’ reports.

    The six world powers have offered Iran a new deal during the two days of nuclear talks held in Kazakhstan this week, that includes easing some of the sanctions imposed on Tehran and dropping the demand that the Islamic Republic shuts down its enrichment plant at Fordow, the New York Times reported on Wednesday.

    In return for easing some of the sanctions, P5+1 insisted Tehran suspends uranium enrichment at the plant and take a series of measures that would “constrain the ability to quickly resume enrichment there,” the Times cited a senior American official as saying.

    Obama is coming to Israel to play hardball  

    Op-ed: US president will not travel thousands of miles just to eat hummus or place note in Kotel
    Eitan Haber, YNET

    During his next term as prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu will have to do what he avoided doing in his previous terms: Draw boundaries and begin establishing two states for two peoples. This painful process, certainly from Netanyahu’s perspective, will commence soon.

    Officials in Jerusalem and Washington say that Obama will not introduce a new plan during his visit to the region next month; that it is important for him to show the Jewish community in the US that he is not hostile toward Israel. This could be true. Or not.

    Cairo: Court orders Gaza tunnels destroyed  

    Roi Kais, YNET

    A Cairo court ruled that the Egyptian government must destroy all tunnels between Egypt and the Gaza Strip.

    The labyrinth of tunnels is an infamous smuggling route for arms trafficking.

    It is also believed that 30% of the goods that reach the Gaza Strip, as well as over 1.5 million people a year, make their way through the tunnels in an attempt to bypass the blockade that has been imposed by Israel and Egypt for more than seven years.

    The underground maze stretching beneath Rafah, Sinai and Gaza is said to include 450 main tunnels and 750 sub-tunnels.
