DEBKAfile Special Report
September 27, 2008, 5:21 PM (GMT+02:00)
Friday, Sept. 26, 2008 was the day the policy pursued by Ehud Olmert, Tzipi Livni
and Shimon Peres, of reliance on the international community to stop Iran developing a nuclear bomb, sank without a trace.
The international community declined to adopt fresh economic sanctions to rein in an increasingly defiant Tehran.
A deal between
the US and Russia in New York sealed a very brief non-sanctions draft reaffirming previous council decisions for the five
permanent Security Council members and Germany to table. It also called for Iran’s compliance.
This ignored the reality
of Iran openly flouting all three previous sanctions resolutions: Tehran continues to enrich uranium, reprocess plutonium,
build nuclear-capable missiles and stonewall on International Atomic Energy Agency’s questions and inspections.
usually forgiving IAEA director Mohamed ElBaradei changed his tune and admitted Thursday that Iran was on its way to “mastering
technology that would enable it to build atomic bombs.”
Yet no comment has come from Israel, either from the Kadima-nominee
for prime minister Tzipi Livni or defense minister, Labor’s Ehud Barak, although ElBaradei was clearly preparing the
ground to raise his hands and admit failure in stop Iran acquiring a nuclear weapon capability. The world would have to swallow
This acceptance was reflected in the West’s backing down on a fourth round of sanctions. Iran, free of fear
of retribution, may go forward with its first underground nuclear test some time next year, flaunting the inability of its
arch-foes, America and Israel, to prevent it attaining the status of first Islamic nuclear power.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad could
therefore afford to be cockier than ever when he addressed the UN General Assembly in Nazi-style anti-Semitic, anti-Israeli
and anti-American language. Tehran would ignore any council demand imposed by “arrogant powers” to curb its nuclear
program, he declared. The issue was closed.
The Iranian leader can afford to crow. This week he won solid backing from Iran’s
ultimate power, supreme leader ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who called on the nation to give him their support.
This cleared the way for
Ahmadinejad’s re-election as president next year and enable him to continue to shepherd the national nuclear weapons
program through to completion.
He certainly picked up the gap in perception of the program between Israel and the world powers.
While Israeli spokesman still refer to a future threat which there is still time to stop, most world leaders appear reconciled
to its presence.
The collapse of Israel’s foreign policy on this issue came at an unfortunate juncture:
1. The pandemonium
in the US-led financial world has removed the Iranian threat from international consciousness.
2. Moscow, Iran and Syria
are cementing their partnership, giving Tehran’s nuclear aspirations a strong diplomatic umbrella.
Moscow is pursuing cold
war tactics in two new spheres: the Middle East, from its center of gravity in Tehran, and Latin America, resting on Venezuela’s
anti-American posture and friendly relations with Iran.
Israel’s foreign policy, lame and defensive at the best of times since
Livni took over, appears as oblivious as ever to the disastrous developments pressing down on the Jewish state.
We need to keep Israel
in prayer, please agree with me and keep Israel in prayer. The world will soon find out the God of Israel is real, mighty,
and has never stopped being the Father of His children. God Bless! Daniel Eggers
Most of us have at one time memorized the 23 Psalm, or atleast find ourselves familiar with the verse, "Yea, though I
walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy
rod and thy staff they comfort me." In this hour we live, this day, this week, this year, we should be comforted,
knowing that we are not alone. God has never left us alone to journey through the valley of the shadow of death.
The valley can be any number of things. It can be a personal or spiritual struggle, a national depression, or a
physical affliction. I just want all of us to know and take comfort in knowing, WE ARE NOT ALONE. Alot is going on in
our world, our nation, and in our homes, but we must never forget, God is always there for us, around ever
turn, past every shadow, surrounding our every move. God Bless! Daniel Eggers
Our nation seems to not only be in the midst of troubling times, but on the door step of even greater problems to come.
I can't explain the feeling of uncertainty I get in my chest when I hear the greatest names in the political and economical
arena try to bolster hope and optimism. All I see and hear is denial. Everyone has a reason why we are in the situation
that we are in, everyone has an opinion on what needs to be done, everyone has a finger that seems to be pointing at everyone
but themselves. I have an opinion about the state of our economy, I have a fix, I have a theory. Here it is.....
God, the Creator of the Universe. There it is, my theory, my fix, and my reason for why the economy is in the state
that it is in. Is it God's fault? Absolutely not, we can not blame God for destroying what we have not made
Him apart of. We cannot expect God to hold together a economy and a nation that wants nothing to do with Him. How can we recieve God's
blessing and His national defense if as a majority we deny His existence and divinity. So there you have it,
God gave the majority of the usa what it has been religiously demanding...... Freedom from His blessing and soon
I fear His protection. In case you haven't noticed, look back and see just were that Godless freedom so many
have been screaming for has gotten us. God forgive us. God Bless! Daniel Eggers
