‘Missile crisis’ real motive behind Israel''s war on Hamas: Report Home

Saturday, 8 December 2012
Washington, December 08:

Washington, Dec. 8 (ANI): The real agenda behind Israel’s assault last month on Hamas’ munitions stockpiles and smuggling tunnels was to eliminate as many as 100 Iranian-built Fajr5 missiles, with the power to reach Tel Aviv, that had been sneaked into Gaza through Egypt, intelligence experts have said.

According to Jonathan Schanzer, a former counter-terrorism analyst at the U.S. Department of the Treasury, the real agenda behind Israel’s war on Hamas was not simply to end the daily barrage of relatively primitive rockets that have become part of Jewish daily life.He says the Obama administration knew in advance of the operation and agreed that the missiles, built in a Sudanese factory, had to be neutralized to protect millions of Israeli citizens who were now within range of the deadly Iranian weapons, CNN reports.

“The U.S. was fully aware of what was going to come in Gaza. They said nothing for the first few days of the operation; there was dead silence from [Obama],” Schanzer, now vice president of research at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies said.According to the report, Israel essentially achieved its main aims within the first few days, said Schanzer, noting that Michael Oren, Israel’s ambassador to the U.S., said as much when he remarked on Day Three of the campaign: "We have run out of good targets.”

Israel''s elimination of senior Hamas figure Ahmad Jabari as he drove in broad daylight in Gaza also fits into Schanzer''s narrative.

“Ahmad Jabari, along with another major Hamas figure, Mahmoud al Mabhouhk, [who was assassinated in Dubai in 2010], was a key part of the procurement network for the Fajr missiles and there is little doubt that Israel was keen to take out the man responsible,” Schanzer explained.

Schanzer contends that the operation actually began three weeks earlier, when, on Oct. 23, the Iranian-owned Yarmouk armaments factory in Sudan - believed to be the assembly plant for the Fajr5 missiles that have a range of up to 45 miles - was devastated by air strikes for which the Sudanese government holds Israel responsible, the report said.

The suggestion of American knowledge and approval of the alleged Israeli attack in Sudan and the subsequent offensive in Gaza, undermines the theory that Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu were not on speaking terms after the elections, in which Netanyahu expressed support for Mitt Romney. The grave threat posed by the Fajr5 rockets may have been enough for both leaders to agree that something had to be done – and fast, the report added.

“The fact of the matter is that there was a significant upsurge in rocket fire from Gaza in the weeks leading up to the operation. Once the need to respond was there, it made sense to take the opportunity to act against the most dangerous weapons. Those (the Fajr rockets) were the first targets. There was a need to minimize their ability to target major population centers in Israel,” an Israeli administration source said. (ANI)

Prove 4 points

Who ever you may be. Just prove four (4) points which mentioned in Quran regarding Allah. If you can prove these 4 points to any one then we are ready to accept him as God. Surah Iqlas (surah 112)
1.Say He is the only God
2. God is Absolute
3. He neither begets nor was he begotten
4. There is no one equal to him.

Worship of some one Other than Allah.

Surah Al-Hajj (The Pilgrimage) --- 70. Know you not that Allah knows all that is in heaven and on earth? Verily, it is (all) in the Book (Al-Lauh Al-Mahfuz). Verily! That is easy for Allah.
71. And they worship besides Allah others for which He has sent down no authority, and of which they have no knowledge and for the Zalimun (wrong-doers, polytheists and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah) there is no helper.
72. And when Our Clear Verses are recited to them, you will notice a denial on the faces of the disbelievers! They are nearly ready to attack with violence those who recite Our Verses to them. Say: "Shall I tell you of something worse than that? The Fire (of Hell) which Allah has promised to those who disbelieve, and worst indeed is that destination!"
74. They have not estimated Allah His Rightful Estimate; Verily, Allah is All-Strong, All-Mighty.

Good coverage or copy paste by Siasat

But Israel and US so far found any missiles. Siasat please research and let the readers know. Those crooks (US) already destroyed Iraq by their intelligence report of Saddam having WMD. Which was unfortunately the intelligence failure of the super power.

Iraq & WMD

Iraq once it was a cradle of Islamic studies with rich treasure of manuscript n other artifacts eating back to hundreds of years.
The salebi crusade which started after the passing of Pro. Mohammad saw, which started from England n Rome etc in which they had crushed Spain n Islam from there and destroyed whatever comes in between until they cross Syria. And the destruction in Iraq was the same consequences and the continuation process to destroy the Islamic identity. They burned down the world famous archives which according to non muslim historians which is the greatest loss to Islamic history. Most of the items were stolen by the brave soilders of US & allies.
However the doom of super power & the Israel is coming very close with Allah's help and they will not find any weapons with muslims but inshallah Allah will send Ababeels for them.
