Report: Obama Threatened to Shoot Down IAF Iran Strike



Report: Obama Threatened to Shoot Down IAF Iran Strike
Kuwaiti paper claims unnamed Israeli minister with good ties with the US administration 'revealed the attack plan to John Kerry.'
The Bethlehem-based news agency Ma’an has cited a Kuwaiti newspaper report Saturday, that US President Barack Obama thwarted an Israeli military attack against Iran's nuclear facilities in 2014 by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.

Following Obama's threat, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was reportedly forced to abort the planned Iran attack.

According to Al-Jarida, the Netanyahu government took the decision to strike Iran some time in 2014 soon after Israel had discovered the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program and were about to sign an agreement in that regard behind Israel's back.

The report claimed that an unnamed Israeli minister who has good ties with the US administration revealed the attack plan to Secretary of State John Kerry, and that Obama then threatened to shoot down the Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.

Al-Jarida quoted "well-placed" sources as saying that Netanyahu, along with Minister of Defense Moshe Yaalon, and then-Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman, had decided to carry out airstrikes against Iran's nuclear program after consultations with top security commanders.

According to the report, “Netanyahu and his commanders agreed after four nights of deliberations to task the Israeli army's chief of staff, Benny Gantz, to prepare a qualitative operation against Iran's nuclear program. In addition, Netanyahu and his ministers decided to do whatever they could do to thwart a possible agreement between Iran and the White House because such an agreement is, allegedly, a threat to Israel's security.”

The sources added that Gantz and his commanders prepared the requested plan and that Israeli fighter jets trained for several weeks in order to make sure the plans would work successfully. Israeli fighter jets reportedly even carried out experimental flights in Iran's airspace after they managed to break through radars.

Brzezinski's idea

Former US diplomat Zbigniew Brzezinski, who enthusiastically campaigned for Obama in 2008, called on him to shoot down Israeli planes if they attack Iran. “They have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch?” said the former national security advisor to former President Jimmy Carter in an interview with the Daily Beast

“We have to be serious about denying them that right,” he said. “If they fly over, you go up and confront them. They have the choice of turning back or not. No one wishes for this but it could be a 'Liberty' in reverse.’"

Israel mistakenly attacked the American Liberty ship during the Six-Day War in 1967.
Brzezinski was a top candidate to become an official advisor to President Obama, but he was downgraded after Republican and pro-Israel Democratic charges during the campaign that Brzezinski’s anti-Israel attitude would damage Obama at the polls.

Planned Parenthood Plans ‘Mega-Center’ For San Antonio



Planned Parenthood Plans ‘Mega-Center’ For San Antonio

by Michael Quinn Sullivan1 Mar 2015
Abortion provider Planned Parenthood will be opening a 22,000-square-foot facility in San Antonio that has pro-life activists say has violated city zoning laws. If it opens, it would be the largest Planned Parenthood facility in the region.

A lawsuit was initiated against Planned Parenthood by a coalition of organization seeking to stop the facility from opening its doors as scheduled on March 1. According to a report at EmpowerTexans.com by Gregory Harrison, the lawsuit is based on the center having been incorrectly zoned.

A temporary injunction seeking to prevent business occupancy was blocked last month. The city is opposing the lawsuit, in part because the primary plaintiff does not live within 200 feet of the building.

The new Planned Parenthood facility is intended to serve south and west Texas, but a required traffic study has not yet been performed.

Local pro-life activist Patrick Von Dohlen told Harrison that Planned Parenthood seems to be buying their way past local ordinances. Asked Dohlen, “How in the world can citizens obtain justice when government officials’ palms are seemingly greased with campaign contributions?”

In a study of local campaign contributions by American Life League, Planned Parenthood donors contributed nearly $100,000 over a two-year period. Those donors included Planned Parenthood’s CEO, the chairman of the board of directors, and other officials.
