Reuel Marc Gerecht’s screed justifying an Israeli bombing attack on Iran coincides with the opening the new Israel lobby campaign marked by the introduction of  House resolution 1553 expressing full support for such an Israeli attack.

What is important to understand about this campaign is that the aim of Gerecht and of the right-wing government of Benjamin Netanyahu is to support an attack by Israel so that the United States can be drawn into direct, full-scale war with Iran.

\r\n

That has long been the Israeli strategy for Iran, because Israel cannot fight a war with Iran without full U.S. involvement. Israel needs to know that the United States will finish the war that Israel wants to start.

So far 46 Republicans have signed H. Res 1553 supporting Israel’s attack of Iran.  The signers include Michele Bachmann.  Although I don’t think any Democrats have yet signed, they all seem afraid to speak out against this terribly bad idea and it’s probably not long before those Democrats so entrenched with AIPAC, do so.  Last time we were this close to launching war on Iran was in 2007 when our military generals Fallon and Mullen were able to keep Cheney from doing so. 

Please everyone call Obama and Congress and tell them to oppose Israeli attack of Iran as it’s designed to draw the U.S. into a new war.  If anyone knows his number, it might be good to call General Mullen and thank him for stopping this insanity back in 2007 and asking that he do everything in his power to stop it again. 

Write and speak out!  Silence is complicity!   Coleen R.

  • The US claims to have received useful information from him in return for the money, but is clearly embarrassed by his very public return to Iran. The offer of a large bribe is reportedly part of a special US programme to get Iranian nuclear scientists to defect.
