Is An Iran-Israel War Coming Soon?

Illustrative Image

The long secret war might escalate into direct confrontation.

Written by Uriel Araujo, researcher with a focus on international and ethnic conflicts.

Iran’s nuclear talks are back on track. There are not very high expectations though and some experts in fact believe that deal or no deal, an Iranian-Israeli future war is almost inevitable for a number of reasons.

For years, the Islamic Republic and the Jewish state have been waging a kind of shadow war – with no real dialogue or any advance towards reconciliation. In fact, one could very well argue that Tehran, on the one hand, and Tel Aviv and Washington, on the other, have been involved in a non-official war since the 1979 Iranian Revolution. Since the Israeli invasion of Lebanon, Tel Aviv has been confronting the Tehran backed Shiite organization known as Hezbollah and various other proxy wars have been fought.

For years, Israel and the United States have been playing a game in which the former threatens to attack Iranian nuclear sites, and the latter avoids opposing such an idea too much while at the same time signaling it would be an unnecessary and dangerous move it does not approve of at all.  Sometimes, Washington also signs that it has the ability to prevent any Iranian counterattack in case Israel strikes. For example, in 2012 it blocked the Strait of Hormuz.

The United States supports its ally Israel and for years has denounced Iran as a “threat” to the Jewish state and the other nations in the area, especially Saudi Arabia. And yet Washington certainly fears that the Islamic Republic response to any Israeli attack would destabilize the entire region. The uncertainty factor also plays a role: no one really knows how advanced the Iranian nuclear program is. A fatwa (Islamic decree) stating that the Iranian Republic considers the use of nuclear weapons a sin is listed on Khamenei’s official website. It further states that Tehran supports the idea of a Middle East free of nuclear weapons. There is however intense debate in the country and a growing call for this fatwa to be reconsidered given the circumstances of today’s world.

In any case, it would seem there are quite irreconcilable differences not only between Tehran and Tel Aviv but also between the latter and its own ally Washington. Cultural differences might play a role here: while both of them have similar views on the Islamic Republic, they disagree on how to deal with it. The Israelis do not tolerate risks very much, and the Americans cannot accept the possible global effects of a Israeli-Iranian war in terms of destabilization and unpredictability.

So, a complicated tension-game has been unfolding for many years. Israel act as if it always were on the very verge of being attacked by Iran, and bluffs by threatening to take a preemptive strike against the country, while claiming it does not do so because it is contained by the US, which, in its turn, takes credit for stopping an Israeli attack (which perhaps was never really intended anyway). Washington basically wants to keep Tehran relatively isolated and is quite content to see that its presence in Syria has diminished, for instance. For the Americans, it is all about containing the Islamic Republic without going to war – in this way, during the Barack Obama administration, for example, the State Department tried to reorient Damascus away from Tehran, according to American diplomat Frederic Hof. The Jewish state, on the other hand, has its own concerns and agendas.

Iran, in its turn, certainly sees that defense ties between Israel and various Arab states are on the rise. This has been so since the Abraham Accords initiative and it has changed the very geopolitical map of the Middle East. A Wall Street Journal report claims that some Israeli and “Arab military chiefs” from  Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Qatar, Bahrain, Jordan, and the UAE held, in Sharm El Sheikh (Egypt), a secret meeting pertaining to the “Iranian threat” and their air defense. Fars News has published claims according to which the Kingdom of Jordan opposes such “Arab-Israel NATO”. However, the Jordanian King Abudallah II has stated that he would support more countries in the region coming into a military alliance. These developments of course hamper Saudi-Iranian efforts towards rapprochement, even though Iranian Foreign Ministry stated on June 27 that Riyad is ready to have more direct bilateral talks.

Israel, the US, Bahrain and the UAE have also taken part in naval exercises in the Red Sea and so there is a situation of increasing militarization of the region. All of this certainly provokes Iran.

In May, various drones attacked a suspected Iranian nuclear research facility, killing one engineer. Days before, an Iranian colonel was killed by two assassins. Tel Aviv is believed by many to be behind such covert actions. Moreover, the new Israeli government has advanced its “Octopus Doctrine”, which greatly expands the campaign against Tehran. While Iranian-Israeli wars have been going on for years, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett has stated he wants to fight not merely “the tentacles” but also the “head” of the “Iranian octopus”. It is a dangerous game and at some point, a red line might get crossed.

Amid Iranian-American and Iranian-Israeli tensions, Moscow, in its turn, has agreed to activate its strategic pact with Tehran – similar to the one China has also signed with the Islamic Republic.

Both Iran and Israel are dominant powers in the Middle East and their long shadow war could escalate into a major regional conflict. In today’s highly tense world, this could spiral into a global confrontation.

‘Soon’ began in 1979. In the ’80s Israel and NATO were Saddam’s ‘best friends’, he failed to get Iran back under control of Royal Dutch Shell and in the ’90s they destroyed him and his country. The false flag part was the ‘slant drilling’ angle. Israel with any sanctions since 1945 and unlimited funding against Iran being sanctioned as much as possible, as well as MOSSAD terrorist cells created with the PPK to help with various terrorist activities in Iran. Perhaps Turkey was just informed if they are ‘attacked’ they should do nothing as it is an event meant to demonize somebody who is not a demon at all. ‘If you want something done right the first time, do it yourself.’ The nations that are where the shareholders of Royal Dutch Shell should ‘man up’ and go take back what they stole in the first place

A war with Iran was what the isreali apartheid regime wanted all along. They cannot have their ‘greater isreal’ without it. Unfortunately, this has been put on hold as their attack of Syria hasn’t gone to plan. Their last hope for holding land in Syria is the PKK and the Kurds. Their plan for Syrian land hasn’t gone well either.

The results could have been different, however the bear woke early from hibernation.

It is highly unlikely that the Zionists have balls to attack Iran directly, they are stoking tensions in the region so that they can use the dumb Wahhabi Arabs to fight Iran, just like Slavs killing Slavs. However, the Wahhabi puppet regimes have too much to lose and are certified cowards as Yemen has shown. Iran on its own has enough strategic mass to destroy the Zionists.

Peter Jennings

Iran are to be a future force in the area, if not already, and the isreali apartheid regime doesn’t like it. The apartheid regime will fight themselves into a hole and then call on the american’s and the British like they always do.

That’s why it’s busy pounding nato trolls in Syria and Ukraine. That’s why the US and nato are shitting their pants because these cowards instead of declaring war on Russia have sent in the bunko squad who are getting their asses handed to them, sometimes in a bag.

The attack on Russia that the US and its nato poodles have been planning and setting up for the last two decades has already failed. So has using Russian as a USadmin cash point machine. Throwing your dummy out of the pram won’t make you feel any better and it won’t change the reality that the US and its nato poodles are royally fucked. Even their own people despise them.

Do the World a favor and give them a chunk of American desert and get them to leave Israel before it becomes a crater. The whole World hates them.

That was suggested some time ago, along with Madagascar. Both were rejected as there is much more spoils to be had in the ME. The isreali apartheid regime are just another crusader stronghold.

BTW How much can Iran sell a nuclear boat engine (60% refinement) for? I hear China’s super cargo ships will be needing an engine reserved for military subs and carriers.

The Iranian mullahs policies are as baffling as Putin’s, they have brought enough economic hardship on the Iranian public for the dormant nuclear program and not even tested a nuke. It is quite bizarre, the head mullah’s fatwa against nukes in Islam, while puppet Pakistan has nukes, so does India, Zionists and even Saudis the so-called custodians of Islam are trying to buy nukes from Pakistan. Iran will only be safe it it has nuclear weapons. We are now definitely living in the law of the jungle era imposed by Zionist controlled west.

Iran probably has Nukes or can get anytime they need. They’re best friends with the smartest countries, especially NK who’ll help them because NK knows Iran will never sell itself out, and a ally they can depend on

Paul

What kind of naive idiotic headline is that? Clearly the writer is not a politically incorrect anti-semite. Anti semites are always the smartest people, and know that Israel would never go to war against Iran. Instead, Israel would just get their Jewish ass kissing American gentiles to fight and die for them. And American retards will eagerly volunteer and die for them since they are taught in their retarded churches that he who blesses Israel will be blessed. Look up John Hagee and you’ll see what I mean.

The Zionists would prefer to use Wahhabi Arab puppets as cannon fodder against Iran, however the NATO and Wahhabi war on Yemen’s civilians has not been a sterling success and the threat of Iranian missiles destroying the west’s beloved oil infrastructure is another deterrent, particularly when NATO’s primary goal now is the destruction of Russia. A war with Iran would be a severe distraction and not a viable option as too costly. Also China is next after Russia, Iran is small fries.

Jnoub

A war with Iran will cause too much damage. Houthis attack Saudi refineries whenever they please, one Iranians missile will fuck the world economy up. Iran will shut down the Strait of Hormuz to put the cherry on top, and even if USA somehow manages to get rid of Iran in Hormuz (which will never happen) it will still be too dangerous for any ship to pass by, and that’s still a win for Iran. All of Iran enemies have ICBM and nukes, I doubt Iran would act this confident if they can’t stop them or even have some of their own. If Iran managed to make Hezbollah the world most powerful militia right under Israel nose, build bunkers facing Israel undetected and gave them game changing weapons, it’s unimaginable what Iran has for themselves

IMHO

Unfortunately you are right. But in fact Russia is pro zionist as well as just about every major player on the world stage.

Anyone who thinks the Jews have a right to that land or are otherwise special in God’s eyes are against God and His covenant and they are antichrist.

The rise of antichrist was prophesied and we see it today.

Putin was close buddy of NutterYahoo and gave him blank check to bomb Syrians and Iranian militias. Just last month civilian Damascus airport was bombed and put out of action for a month and even now is non-operational. 1200+ Zionist attacks on Syria, Palestinian journalist killed in cold blood and no condemnation, let alone action from Russia. The Russian troops in Lattakia are now sitting ducks as Turkey has closed the Bosporus and the airspace, so no avenue of resupply.

In the bible there were two peoples that had a fatal wound. Assyria and Israel. King Soloman says what will be has been and will be again. Theres nothing new under the sun. I also believe its Israel and perhaps the beasts of Revelations are being made.

Oooo antichrist?… Nietzsche more than a century ago described that the only Christ and Christian were Jesus the Prophet… the Church and Sect Priest that represents him on earth were the antichrist…. look friend… if you believe a man could born from a virgin, could go to heaven using a rocket on his ass, could argue and fight against everyone who think different than him and also choose his own traitor who double cross him because he was so smart and choose him to perform him…. if you believe all this nonsense yes friend, stupidity win and humans are stupid and can do anything to them with ancient techniques our King High Priests call it THE MAZE, or the DUNGEON… you create systems of civilization were people will travel the maze or dungeon while helping advance their society and assuring their survival… Religion is just a tool on this context of MAZE, you walk happily your maze while thinking happens wonderful will happen to you at the end of the maze and its death for sure.

IMHO

You peope in the media have been using this kind of fear porn to get people in line for decades. Just like the nuclear threat that will never be used.

Face it, the entire world is destined to continue it’s degeneration. Iran will not go to war with Israel and Russia will never nuke the U.S.

Just like the homosexual agenda that can never be stopped because everyone wants “democracy”. It has been pushed on us for decades and is now embedded in our computerized society. There is no way to uproot it now without WAR.

A war that will never hapoen.

The west is supplying weapons to Ukraine to support its proxy war against Russia. Russia should now arm Iran with S-400 and other sophisticated weaponry in retaliation. The truth is this is all pert of the same global conflict being played out.

The S-400 are pot plants and turning into mushrooms as Zionists have bombed Syria over 1200 times. Even attacked Damascus civilian airport which is a real war crime. What has Russia done? NOTHING, ZILCH, ZIP, SEFR, NADA!

ClownLivesMatter

God you people have no understanding of Geopolitics do you? What do you want Russia to do? Attack Israel amidst the current war in Ukraine? Russia is already being throat fucked by sanctions, doing anything to Israel on behalf of Syria risks making them permanent. Russia and even Iran for that matter can’t do anything to Israel because it’s EXACTLY what the United States wants, more war, defending the “innocent” jewish state and protecting its “ally”. Russia has been destroying Ukraine’s military without even trying, why change the current strategy that is already working for them? If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

Zionism is Cancer

Don’t play dumb, the Ukraine war started this year, whilst Israel has been bombing Syria for the past 8 years non-stop. No excuses.

Israel and nato HAVE TO get rid of Hezbollah, PMF and Houthis. They will not be able to fight a superpower like Iran if theres strong, loyal and highly disciplined soldiers all around Iran. Israel can’t even take Hezbollah, they will not be able to cope to thousands of Hezbollah missiles flying at them while trying to do offensive operations in Iran. It’s literally impossible, not even NATO wants to fuck with Hezbollah. Don’t you guys find it weird that NATO helps all their friends against terrorist, but where were they in the 2006 war? USA was sending weapons yes, but what about their soldiers? NATO always sends soldiers against militias like ISIS, Al Qaeda, Taliban etc. Why not Hezbollah? If you get rid of Hezbollah, greater Israel will happen because no one will be able to defend the Litani anymore, and when israel gets that river they’ll become a lot stronger

Iran has nukes. North Korea and Iran have been working jointly for many projects for many years. North Korea has conducted 6 nuke tests so far. Iran participated in North Korea’s nuke tests. Keep in mind that North Korea has hypersonic missiles not to mention North Korea ICBMs can vaporize the whole US continent.

ItsTheJewsStupid

The Jews have had a plan to destroy Iran before (((THEY))) stole Palestine. With that said, take note of the Jews’ Yinon Plan and (((THEIR))) claim to Greater Israel.

The Jews Brookings Institution’s “Which Path to Persia” document lays out the Jews’ plans for foisting an Iran destroying war on the world; Using our children and treasure, again.

Part of the plan is using a “deal” propagandized as “rejected” and an “and unforgivable act of aggression–something on the order of an Iranian-backed 9/11” false-flag blamed on Iran.
