AL QAEDA COMES TO CANADA

In Canada, Muslim Community Did Right Thing In Tipping Off Authorities About Two Al Qaeda Terrorists

If It Hasn't Already, Canada Should Step Up Security Cooperation With Israel's Mossad & Shabak Security Services

Iran, like North Korea, is escalating its provocations in response to growing international pressure over their nuclear weapons programs. Both 'crazy states' are trying to show they must not be tampered with in their drive to acquire nuclear capability

 Add Canada to the list of countries where Iran is flexing its muscles while continuing its relentless drive to acquire nuclear weapons. Just look at the list: Kathmandu (Nepal), New Delhi (India), Tbilisi (Georgia), and Bangkok (Thailand) are all sites of planned terror attacks against Israel instigated by Iran. But not only Iran; American authorities are now investigating how they fouled up by not catching the two Tsarnaev brothers suspected of the Boston Marathon bombing after being warned by the Russians in 2011.

FALLOUT FROM BOSTON MARATHON MASSACRE

The eyes of Israel focused on Boston and the two terrorists of Chechen background who terrorized the entire city for four days.

YOM KIPPUR WAR, U.S. & IRAN

Defense Minister Moshe Dayan: "If We Launch Preemptive Air Strike Or Even Carry Out Major Mobilization Of Reserves, U.S. Will Blame Israel For Starting Yom Kippur War!"

IDF Chief of Staff David Elazar: "If We Do Not Preempt With Air Strike, At Least Mobilize Reserves!"

 Publication of confidential IDF protocols reveals dramatic details of confrontation between Defense Minister Moshe Dayan and IDF Chief of Staff David Elazar, just hours before Egypt and Syria launched a combined offensive against Israel. Dayan later dissuaded Prime Minister Golda Meir from carrying out a preemptive air strike or a total mobilization of the IDF reserves; this while Egyptian and Syrian aircraft, artillery, tanks and troops were about to go to war. Although Dayan's position was previously known, the new details cast the final hours before the Yom Kippur war of 1973 in a new light. Israel, at Dayan's insistence, bowed to the U.S. which believed the Arabs would not attack. In so doing Israel paid a heavy price – many of the Israeli soldiers and pilots killed in the war would be alive today, if Israel had decided differently. It also raises the issue of what will happen if Israel and the U.S. disagree over when to act on a nuclear Iran, even if Netanyahu and Obama have reached a tentative understanding.

OBAMA WIELDS 'SOFT POWER' IN MIDDLE EAST

 Have U.S. President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu forged a new deal on how to approach the Iranian nuclear crisis? After Obama took Israel by storm, Bibi declared:" I am absolutely convinced the President is determined to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons!" IsraCast is of the view that the dazzling impact the U.S. President has made on Israeli leaders and people makes it difficult to arrive at a rational assessment of the visit's longer term outcome. However, it can be said most Israelis now believe that Barack Hussein Obama is a true friend of the Jewish state.

When they meet again, they are also expected to agree on the numbers of ultra-orthodox men who will start serving in the IDF. Lapid, leader of 'There's a Future' party may be on his way to becoming Israel's next political hero or a washed-up politician, it will all depend on how he fares as new Finance Minister.

IRAN & NETANYAHU'S COALITION CAPERS

Air strike on Iran's nuclear sites or Iranian A-bomb?

Almaty, Khazakhstan has now joined the list of exotic venues for the Great Power negotiations with Iran - aside from that nothing else has changed. The Iranians continued to string along the P5 +1, the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany, as they did so skillfully in Geneva, Istanbul, Moscow and Baghdad. The scene may shift but the Iranian nuclear negotiators always stick to their two-step routine - one step forward and one step back.
