Binyamin Netanyahu described Iran as the greatest threat that Israel has ever faced and failed to mention stalled talks with the Palestinians after he was asked to be the country's new Prime Minister today. In a speech made outside the residence of President Shimon Peres, the Likud leader said that protecting Israel would be his greatest responsibility as leader, and condemned "formidable" challenges posed by the Islamic Republic.

The media has perpetuated a myth that Obama will not support Israel. This has been by the Radical Right who didn’t want their members to support Obama, and the Radical Left who didn’t want their supporters illusion broken over who Obama really is. I can assure you Barack Obama will not do anything to help Palestinians because that would cross AIPAC, and I’m sure he doesn’t want to deal with that sort of a vendetta. In Obama’s below speech to AIPAC he promises $30,000,000,000.00 ($30 billion) to Israel over the next 30 years. Obama’s promises AIPAC unconditional support, funding, and weapons. Strangely many media pundits have claimed Israel stopped bombing Gaza prior to Obama’s inauguration because Obama does not support Israel. This is misinformation at its finest.

Sharing this with you is probably the best way to know the reality behind this book.

In a Haaretz article, Is Israel assassinating Iran nuclear scientists?, Yossi Melman reports, “Israel is assassinating Iranian nuclear scientists as part of a covert war against the Islamic Republic’s illicit weapons program, the Daily Telegraph on Tuesday quoted Western intelligence analysts as saying.” He continues, “The British daily said Israel’s Mossad espionage agency was rumored to be behind the death of Ardeshire Hassanpour, a top nuclear scientist at Iran’s Isfahan uranium plant, who died in mysterious circumstances from reported “gas poisoning” in 2007. “Other recent deaths of important figures in the procurement and enrichment process in Iran and Europe have been the result of Israeli ‘hits,’ intended to deprive Tehran of key technical skills at the head of the program, according to the analysts.”
