IRAN'S NUCLEAR GENOCIDE THREATS

IDF Intelligence Chief Maj. Gen Amos Yadlin has said that Iran may acquire a nuclear weapons option by 2010. In a closed door briefing to the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, the intelligence chief reported that the Iranians had run into some 'technological problems' in uranium enrichment while, with the help of North Korea, they are developing new missiles with a range of up to 3,500 kilometers. Canadian MP Irwin Cotler, a former Canadian Justice Minister and McGill Law professor, told IsraCast that Iranian President Ahmadinejad's threats 'to wipe Israel off the map' are in flagrant violation of the U.N. charter and something should be done about it.

AMERICAN INTELLIGENCE & ISLAMIST IRAN

Israel and most Arab states in the Middle East are baffled and bewildered by the latest U.S, intelligence estimate that Iran suspended its nuclear weapons drive in 2003. In Jerusalem, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is set to convene the defense and foreign affairs establishment to reassess what could be a change for the worse in Israel's security situation. Threatened with destruction by Iranian President Ahmadinejad, the Jewish state has been hoping that the international campaign of sanctions might dissuade Tehran to halt its uranium enrichment program which is the very heart of a nuclear weapon. While Israeli leaders have not directly criticized the U.S. National Intelligence Estimate, Israeli analysts charge that its assessment of Iran is flawed by a built - in contradiction. The Israeli assessment is that Iran, if not stopped, could acquire the bomb in 2009.

Israel is ringing alarm bells after President Ahamadinejad declared that Iran is now operating 3,000 centrifuges - experts say they could produce enough enriched uranium for one nuclear bomb annually.

Jerusalem now views Dr. Mohamed ElBaradei as the main obstacle.

MACHIAVELLI IN MOSCOW

The looming Iranian nuclear threat has been placed front row center on the international agenda - U.S. President George Bush has warned an Iranian bomb could spark World War III while his Russian counter- part chooses to say there is no evidence that Tehran is developing nuclear weapons. China, annoyed by Bush over his meeting with the Dalai Lama, shows no sign that it will support the American appeal for tougher sanctions. Meanwhile Israeli leaders, who have declared they cannot acquiesce in Iran's acquiring nuclear weapons, have been presenting their concerns in Moscow and Washington. Opinion poll indicates most Israelis favor using military force to prevent nuclear weapons falling into hands of President Ahmadinejad who threatens wipe Jewish state off the map.

'METHOD IN AHMADINEJAD'S MADNESS'

'Iranian President's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's speeches in New York were a pack of lies designed to deceive the West' - that's the assessment of Arab Affairs expert Menashe Amir. In an interview with IsraCast, Amir said Ahmadinejad exploited the Shiite Islamic tradition of telling lies in order to mislead the enemy and cover your true intentions. It is known as 'taukia' and Ahmadinejad exploits it to create the false impression that Iran already has acquired the technology for enriching uranium for producing nuclear weapons.

ISRAELI BLACKOUT

Israel is refusing to comment on the Washington Post report that Israeli jets bombed a Syrian nuclear facility supplied by North Korea on September 6th. IDF intelligence chief Gen. Amos Yadlin has just briefed the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee but made no reference to the alleged air strike. At the start of the closed door session, committee chairman Zachi Hanegbi said Gen.Yadlin that he was under no obligation to discuss the affair. Knesset Member Hanegbi later told IsraCast that Israel's refusal to comment on the alleged attack is making it easier for Syria to play down the matter and there were 'encouraging signs' that tension was subsiding.

AUSCHWITZ BORDERS?

Israel's Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas reportedly discussed an Israeli withdrawal on the West Bank at their latest meeting in Jerusalem. According to Israel Radio, the two leaders also considered a land swap involving West Bank settlements in return for Israeli territory in the Negev desert as well as a partition of Jerusalem. The right- wing Likud party has charged that Olmert has no mandate to negotiate such issues. Likud MK Yuval Steinitz told IsraCast that an Israeli pullback to the former lines of 1967 would lead to a Holocaust for the Jewish state.

GOING LAST MIDDLE EAST MILE

About to enter the home-stretch of his second and final term, U.S. President George Bush is making a final attempt to reach an Israeli-Palestinian peace settlement after the Hamas coup in Gaza. The IsraCast analysis is that Bush is exploiting the split between Hamas and Fatah to unify West Bank Palestinians and moderate Arab states on an accelerated two-state solution. Bush told the Palestinians they must renounce Hamas and terrorism and recognize Israel as a Jewish state. Israelis had to settle the Negev and Galilee and not the West Bank.

PRESIDENT PERES & ZE'EV JABOTINSKY

The first official duty of President Shimon Peres was to address a memorial ceremony for Zeev Jabotinsky, the revered founder of Betar and Revisionist movement - the forerunner of the Likud party. At the service on Jerusalem's Mount Herzl, President Peres spoke of how even David Ben-Gurion had exaggerated the rift between the Revisionists on the Right and Mapai on the Left when it came to the Greater Land of Israel. Peres said that Jabotinsky advocated holding both banks of the Jordan River while Ben-Gurion was in favor of dividing the land. Peres added that both leaders had agreed on the need to ensure a Jewish majority - an issue that is topical to this day.

BRITISH PROFS FAIL OBJECTIVITY

In Britain, the University and College Union (UCU) vote to promote a boycott of Israeli academic institutions has aroused a furious Israeli reaction. The UCU boycott was said to be in protest to Israel's actions in the conflict with the Palestinians. Even super-dove Yossi Beilin of the left wing Labor party called on British Prime Minister Tony Blair to condemn the UCU decision. Otherwise Beilin said the outgoing leader's term would be stained by such an ignominy. The UCU resolution, approved by 158 to 99, is only a recommendation until approved by a majority of the body's 120,000 members. IsraCast evaluates the UCU motion and other manifestations of what appear to be a double standard of morality applied only to the Jewish state.

SDEROT UNDER FIRE

As anticipated by IsraCast, the bloody Palestinian infighting between Hamas and Fatah in the Gaza Strip has spilled over into Israel. The Palestinians have launched over 30 Qassam rockets at the Israeli town of Sderot apparently in an attempt to deflect the focus from their internal feud that killed at least 15 Palestinians on Tuesday, May 15th. The rockets are terrorizing the children, women and men. In the initial bombardment, one woman was seriously injured and dozens more were lightly hurt and suffered from shock. While the Israeli government considers what to do, Jewish-Russian philanthropist Arkadi Gaydamak has stepped in with his own private solution.

DRESSING UP HAMAS

The Israeli government has voted overwhelmingly to boycott the new Palestinian unity government. At its weekly cabinet session, 19 ministers voted against conducting a dialogue with the Hamas-lead cabinet. Only two ministers abstained in the vote. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert called on the international community to maintain its boycott of the Palestinian government until it accepts conditions set up the international Quartet; they call on the Palestinians to recognize Israel, halt terrorism and implement former agreements. In an interview with IsraCast, Dr. Dan Schueftan said the Palestinian unity government is a ploy to dress up Hamas as a legitimate partner while the terror organization continues to plot the destruction of Israel.

RUSSIAN ARMS SALE ROILS ISRAEL

Israeli officials charge that a billion dollar sale of Russian anti-tank and anti-missile rockets will encourage Syria to go to war against Israel. The new anti-tank missiles were said to be more accurate and effective than the Russian weapons that destroyed a number of Israeli tanks in last summer's war with Hezbollah. Moscow had sold those weapons to Damascus but they ended up in the hands of Hezbollah fighters. Some Israeli experts warn the sale of such advanced weaponry to Syria could alter the balance of power with the Jewish state. Does the latest weapons sale to Syria signal that Russia is renewing its cold war confrontation here in the Middle East or are the Russians trying 'to make a fast rubble'? IsraCast interviewed Prof. Galia Golan, Prof. (Emeritus) of the Hebrew University and currently Professor of Government at the Herzliya Inter-Disciplinary Center. Professor Golan assessed the latest Russian arms sale as well as other aspects of Russian policy.

FALLOUT OF SUNNI-SHIITE CLASH

Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni says the current confrontation between Sunni and Shiite Muslims has superseded the Israeli- Palestinian conflict in at least seven Islamic states around the globe. In a briefing to the Knesset Foreign Affairs & Defense Committee, Livni disclosed that Israel was telling foreign countries that the recent Mecca Agreement agreed by the Palestinians does not comply with the conditions of the so-called Quartet. A senior Israeli official also said that Muslim states may intervene in Iraq if total chaos follows a future U.S. withdrawal.
