Rivkah   (03.10.10)
ruling elite do NOT want a war with Iran and that Israel would have to start the war for that to occur. He says the ruling elite do want a world war in two years because it is so profitable since they finance both sides. He said Yemen, Pakistan, and Afganistan are diversions to get the public's attention away from what the ruling elite are doing, such as the HealthCare Bill that is equivalent to total government control and the enslavement of the people in America. Everyone will work for the government eventually in a New World Order unless people demand that the US Constitution protect them from the misuse of power by the government.

9. US demands a State like Iran on the West Bank/Gaza! True or
Jay Getty ,   Chicago US   (03.10.10)
Why: The US (government, not people) policy in Iran: Keep the dictators (that parade as religious) at all cost (same policy since Carter "stabbed the Shaw in the back in 1979)! Why? "nice Long lasting War and sell lots of weapons" (c 1991 Getty delivered to every member of congress on this war and the battle tactics to be used against us) The "don’t ask don’t tell" going away is the way the “Government” tells you: "can you believe it, can you believe it" will be followed immediately by the "DRAFT"; no exemptions except practicing clergy this time boys and girls! Obumer! US/EU demand no Jews in parts of Jerusalem! With friends like that who needs...

15. What is the FIDF?
Golani ,   Deal, USA   (03.11.10)
Having served in the IDF, I was what is called "a lone soldier". Since I came from the US, I had no immediate family in Israel. The FIDF is an organization that assists "lone soldiers" manage during their service. I was provided with gifts at holiday time, places to stay, entertainment on remote combat bases and so on. The organization is a true motivator. It is not an organization that is begging for money. It is a worthy cause. For those that don't agree, I know the reason why. It would be a lable called anti Israel & anti Semetic.

(03.11.10)
as long as no one took any $$$ from your own pocket, why complain???? every citizen in the usa has a belief system and has an opinion of whom they want to support and whom they believe in. apparently, 80% of the usa public and especially its military and non jewish citizens SUPPORT ISRAEL 100%. YOU MAY NOT. NO ONE IS ASKING YOU TO DONATE A PENNY. WHY SHOULD YOU CARE THAT ISRAEL WAS SO IMMENSLY SUCCESSFUL IN ITS FUND RAISING FOR ITS MILITARY???? if people such as yourself do not wish to participate, i see no one forcing you too. everyone gives to what they want to give and those that do not wish to give are not forced to. you are one of them. but to belittle those that believe in israel and its needs, is insencere and poorly stated. hameed aboughaze, iranian

18. Threats to Israel

May God continue to bless and protect Israel!!!!
19. It occurred to me that the US Marine Sargeant is like the
Rivkah   (03.11.10)
Lord giving back what the devil had stolen from General Ashkenazi when his office was robbed. He also restored something General Ashkenazi, a trust in his eyes and heart that had been crushed by a lot of recent events. Maybe it lit the light that dimmed of long ago memories of his being the junior, honoring a senior.
20. He's not telling us the whole truth
Ussishkin ,   Tel Aviv Israel   (03.11.10)
There is undoubtedly a major threat from Iran - which we really do not have the power to deal with. But there is another threat just as great as that from the outside - and that is the one that is eating us from the inside. This is a package that gets bigger each day - settler sons in the senior ranks of the IDF, fundamentalist religious groups pulling the levers of political power, the loss of our credibility in the international community, the loss of key allies like Turkey, the embarrassment of allies like the UK and worst of all the embarrassment of the most valuable friend of all - the USA. But the truth the Chief of Staff won't tell us, or that we can face when we look at ourselves in the mirror each morning, is that we the people, this nation, bear the fullest responsibility for this abyss we are in, because we can't stand up and get ourselves out of it. We don't care. And that's the worst truth of all.
21. Natural Balance in the region
Stan ,   Johannesburg RSA   (03.11.10)
USA needs to note that Sadam kept the natural balance in the region and priodic wars were fought that kept the number of religous fundamentalists spawed in check. The USA needs to act to restore this balance otherwise religous fundamentalists are going to run rampant in the region (as we are seeing now). If nothing is done this plague will keep spreading throught the global village. TAKE NOTE
22. $ 20 million dollars thank you all RIGHT ???
M. S. ,   mpls america   (03.11.10)
I realize it is nice of all you people to donate $ 20 million dollars to help the Israel defense forces with all the anti J*wish anti Israel sentiment in the world such help is much apreciated however I feel the Israeli military leader over estimates the danger not from some places but from Hizbulah Syria Hamas Iran togather they pose no over wealming danger but generaly speaking world opinion could lead to anti J*wish movements Russia England France America Argentina Canada Cuba the vast majority are anti J*wish W W II German propaganda was better than J*wish people Israel realizes a lot better it lingers ready to boil over un less a miracle may save us that is probably what the Israeli military leader meant but does not realize it instinctive re action to danger RIGHT ??? Thank You... M. S.
23. #20 the threat from the inside is from the left, from TA
lemmings hotline ,   sd usa   (03.11.10)
the ones who want peace at any price, the ones who feel no connection to this land, save they have no where else that would take them in.
24. unprecendented *and* unmentioned
ben Ish   (03.11.10)
The threats he talks about are not as serious as the ones they are not talking about. Rivkah, sorry but you are only half-right. The globalists don't *want* a war between Israel and Iran, exactly, HOWEVER, they have determined that such a war is almost certainly unavoidable. Having reached that conclusion, their decision is that the best case scenario for themselves, financially, is for Iran to destroy Israel, as quickly as possible. They fear if Israel defends itself first, then wars may escalate with no end in sight, but if Iran destroys Israel, then it is over and done with. That is the determination. They don't want any war, per se, because it makes markets unpredictable. So if a war can't be avoided, they want the shortest one possible.
