1. who says
Shlomo Dan   (05.25.12)
So who says Ahmedinijad or Khameni was mistranslated when they called for the extermination of Israel ? Now in clear black & white - Iran deadly threat being whitewashed by Obama & Europe finally exposed, very big cat out of the bag: - Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Hassan Firouzabadi (one of the closest confidants of Ayaotallah Khameni) said today " threats and pressures cannot deter Iran from its revolutionary causes and ideals, and stressed that the Iranian nation will remain committed to the full annihilation of the Zionist regime of Israel to the end. - Fars News Agency, May 2012"
2. Absurd!
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (05.25.12)
" .... the find did not necessarily mean that Iran was covertly raising its enrichment threshold toward weapons-grade level. They said one likely explanation was that the centrifuges that produce enriched uranium initially over-enriched at the start as technicians adjusted their output." Likely explanation for someone who believed in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny, anyway. Why is the world scrambling all over itself to make excuses for the Islamic Republic? Look at their history; look at their ruthless suppression of human rights; look at the massacres of their Sunni, Bahai and Zoroastrian population; look at their daily rhetoric promising the destruction of the "Zionist entity." But if the Iranians are that wildly inaccurate, they shouldn't be allowed to play with nuclear toys in any event, should they? Senior inspectors and reviewers cannot lie; the tests are recorded and cannot be erased or altered, and are in any event subject to considerable oversight. The inspectors in the field? Probably considerably less devoted to their task. I wonder how many gold rials it takes to buy an IAEA inspector to make ludicrous suggestions. Probably less than half of the number it takes to get him to lose his testing equipment. That would, of course, be a proverbial smoking gun. It's all okay, folks. Israel has the message -- loud and clear -- and knows what has to be done.
3. No surprize
Fad Egypt   (05.25.12)
it is a normal result of the phony Baghdad talks , and the appeasement of Hussein Obama
4. The end of Israel is nigh !
Farzan Jamal ,   Tehran, Iran   (05.25.12)
We can assemble a nuke shortly in few months time as all the components & technology is almost ready. Listening to Obama and hoping the failed sanctions would work simply wasted time. Now its too late ! The die is cast. The end of Israel is nigh !
5. Who cares about Iran? Has Israel nothing..
Chris.B ,   Australia   (05.25.12)
better to do do with its energy and time? Iran this Iran that its getting soo boring.Iran should tell the world to F off and do as its sees fit for its own national interests I mean every other country does.When do Israelis listen to other countries??? Never only when it suits them!!!!!!!!!
6. How do you get an evil country
Eyal ,   USA Israel   (05.25.12)
to stop their desire to make nukes, after many years of production and money spent? You can't. It's time to attack this misery of a country.
7. #5 - Go back to sleep..
Amichai ,   Huntsville, US   (05.25.12)
Roll over & go back to sleep we'll wake you when it's over. "Diplomats: This may be result of technical mishap " Yeah, and the subsequent nuclear attack on Israel is just going to be a diplomatic mishap? Please! The really sad part is that many innocent civilians will be killed in a nuclear exchange. It would've been much more humane if the powers that be would've stopped Iran in the earlier stages of development.
8. We've all heard about "bombs over Tokyo"
Noodles ,   Coney Island   (05.25.12)
I think "mushroom clouds over Fordo" has a certain ring to it.
9. #4 Bah Humbug
Dan ,   Florida - Tel Aviv   (05.25.12)
Farzan Iran is a pimple on the Tuchas of Islam. If Iran does get to enrich to nuclear levels it takes time to build the weapon but before it does that it will have to test to see if their Romper Room black-eyed Mullah's have Allah's blessings to do so. When they test, ALL of Sunni Muslims will unite to destroy Iran fearing for their own safety. The Sunni's may hate Israel but are comforted in their knowledge that Israel will never attack them. The USA, Israel and all CIVILIZED nations of Earth will watch and bear witness to Iran's destruction.
10. WHY ARE YOU TRYING...................#2
MAHMOOD ,   LONDON-UK   (05.25.12)
To remain one step ahead of your able politicians? Every talk-back from your side ends in a note....'Israel knows what it has to do'. We all know for certain what it has to do.The fact is it can't.That's the whol;e point,Sarah.
11. #4
Ram ,   London   (05.25.12)
Nice to see you content with wishful thinking :-)
12. #5
Ram ,   London   (05.25.12) tell them Chrissy!! These silly Israelis won't go down quietly, heh?
13. Hmmm....why not give the benefit of the
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (05.25.12)
doubt to people, who are stoning women and who are hanging gays from construction cranes ?
14. Thanks to our secret agents
Mansour Khakpour ,   Tehran, Iran   (05.25.12)
Thanks to our secret agents Hadji Hussein Obama & ugly Begum Catherine Ashton who have cooked up a nice "deal" that fools the Israelis & enables us to build a nuke secretly and eliminate them very soon...ha ha ! - Mansour, Khakpourm Tehran, Iran
15. @9 - testing already done
Farzan Jamal ,   Iran   (05.25.12)
In fact 8 nukes are ready to go. Our scientist did testing & final fine-tuning colloboration with N.Korea and help of late esteemed Kim Jong Il. This is funny since you were watching Iran very carefully, while everything important was done in mountains near Pyyongyang...ha ha ! Now face the wrath of the Ayatollah & the Mahdi.
16. #5 - naive boy tou are, aren't you?
Eyal ,   USA Isral   (05.25.12)
If you lived in Israel (a 1st world country) and Iran is threatening to wipe you, your family and your children, I would think you would take it a bit more seriously, no? Grow up.
17. #9 & 15
Dan ,   Florida - Tel Aviv   (05.25.12)
Wow you really did swallow the Kool-Aid. If Iran had 8 nukes they would either use them or already be destroyed. You assertion of N. Korea too is another fantasy as is N. Korea's ability to launch a ballistic missile. Go back to your Lego's, ceramic dolls and fantasies of Islamic dominance and leave the world to the adults. Oh by the way, the world has the medicine to remove the Iranian pimple from the Tuchas of the world.
18. #9 :-)
Ram ,   London   (05.25.12)
Your funny post reminds me of the 6 day war, in particular, though all the wars between Israel and the arabs were similar in result. Every day Nasser's regime used to announce good news to the Egyptian population, such as, "today we downed X number of Zionist aircraft, probably more than the Israelis owned" or "we are close to entering Tel Aviv" etc. ..You get my drift. I think Israel is lucky to have enemies that are happy to settle for delusions of victory while they litter the desert with discarded shoes, knocked out equipment, not to mention the serious number of casualties, courtesy of IDF's actions. Peace!
19. @17 -
Farzan Jamal , ,   Tehran, Iran   (05.25.12)
You think making nuke is so difficult ?! Only getting enriched Uranium is difficult which we now have enough for 12 nukes currently (240kg, 97.5% thanks to rapid enrichment), while you listened happily to Obama & Cathrina Ashton hot-air emission. Implosion lens, neutron trigger & casing tech help by N.Korea & A.J.Khan. No need for missile, can easily be dropped by suicide-fighter planes or smuggled in by car by Hezbollah allies and exploded....hah heh h!
20. Those who try subterfuge and underestimate
John Prophet   (05.25.12)
Netanyahu, will soon wake up and realize their mistake!
21. Crying wolf
Canadian   (05.25.12)
Israel crying wolf again...?what a big surprise...
22. to Sarah B
Phil ,   USA   (05.25.12)
Israel is crapping its pants. It cant attack Iran. It couldnt defeat two militia groups, you really think it can attack a country. Enough with wars that happened 40,50 60 years ago, lets talk about Israels recent failures, weather it be the failed 2006 attack on Hezbollah, or the failed 2008 attack on Hamas. Israel wanted to wipe them out, couldnt. End of story. Now Israel wants to flex its weak muscles on Iran. HA good luck.
23. the sad thing will be the total destruction
Barney ,   USA   (05.25.12)
of the ordinary iranian person who wants to just live a normal life of freedom but is just a pawn in the game of the idiotic, extremist, cruel, hateful, shia mullahs. The Jews in Israel? Try to annihilate us once your fault. Get a chance to try again-our fault. ain't happening.
24. could it be higher due to faulty test?
jrecho ,   causa   (05.25.12)
25. HEY,SARAH...........................#2
MAHMOOD ,   LONDON-UK   (05.25.12)
Just a result of your famous stuxnet,the spindles were rotating much more faster.....weren't they?And thus the 27% enrichment.Relieved,aren't you?
26. #4 You really do have a simplistic mind
Yaniv ,   Israel   (05.25.12)
The way you understand the process of making a successful nuclear warhead is the same as a dog trying to understand the Torah
27. #15, Fartan, I invite you to come to Bavaria,
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (05.25.12)
because it's a long time, that I had the opportunity to watch a clown like you to perform ! LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL
28. Sarah b's famous posts regarding an imminent attack
Peter ,   Vienna-Austria   (05.25.12)
On irans nukes have been going on for ages now...Nothing to worry about. She poses no threat to anyone( not sure about her husband though). I'm really eager to wait and see her recent prediction: This summer its all gonna be over (LOL..yeah right)...
Israeli 2   (05.25.12)
In what dimension do you reside? Israel devastated Lebanon causing President Senora to cry, begging Israel not to cross the Litani. And the fat ugly rat (Nasrallah) he regretted he started the whole thing. Where is he now? Still frightened, hiding in his cave. You are a twisted contraption. Aren't you?
30. No danger for Israel
Georges Bruno ,   EU/US   (05.25.12)
held hostage by both Iran & the US: the danger is mostly for the Arabl Gulf states. Collateral damage to Israel will be limited. Real damage will be Saudi etc..+ world economy. The end game will be demise of Iran regime anyway. So all good, smile :) as Israel and the Us will prevail
