Israel to be Punished With Sanctions

Well, I take this with a grain of salt till I see some action. But there seems to be some serious rhetoric being flung at Israel by the Obama Admin who may be getting serious about dealing with Israels pigheaded war mongering against Iran. An Attack on Iran will not serve Americas interests and for what it's worth, I think Obama knows this. Now, whether he can force the issue is a whole other kettle of fish. This attack on Iran thingie has been going on since before Obama took office. Even the stupid "shrub" Bush knew attacking Iran would not serve American interests. For those interested in this subject, I will be making a post about the US/Iran and Israel next week that will be an eye opener on the Gaza situation as they are all tied in together sadly.You can check back here on Wednesday for that post. Anyhow, interesting stuff below:

As Israeli threats of war against Iran encounter stiff opposition in the US, the new administration mulls over imposing sanctions on Tel Aviv.

US President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are mulling over a plan to impose sanctions against Israel if the right-wing government of Benjamin Netanyahu implements its long-sought policy of countering Iran's nuclear activities by taking military action against the country.

According to a report by RIA Novosti, the Obama White House is on a collision course with longstanding Israeli plans to launch a military strike on Iranian nuclear infrastructure.

Earlier on Wednesday Israel's Home Front Command announced plans to mobilize the Israeli army as well as the public to hold the largest military exercise in its history on June 2.

The head of Israel's Department for Population at the Home Front Command Colonel Hilik Sofer said by holding the weeklong military exercise Israel seeks to "transform the population from a passive to an active one... We want the citizens to understand that war can happen tomorrow morning."

Earlier in March, hawkish Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu raised the alarm about a major military conflict in the upcoming months. source
