Israel Readies For Strike on Iran's Nuclear Project

From the Sunday Times with an assist from Right Nation:

ISRAEL’S armed forces have been ordered by Ariel Sharon, the prime minister, to be ready by the end of March for possible strikes on secret uranium enrichment sites in Iran, military sources have revealed.

The order came after Israeli intelligence warned the government that Iran was operating enrichment facilities, believed to be small and concealed in civilian locations.

Iran’s stand-off with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) over nuclear inspections and aggressive rhetoric from Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Iranian president, who said last week that Israel should be moved to Europe, are causing mounting concern.
This is exactly where should all have been expected to be. UN and EU authorities, having been giving the responsibility of reeling in the Iranian nuclear problem, have done a lot of talking and finger pointing, posturing and gesturing, pontificating and threatening. There has been much wringing of hands and gnashing of teeth. The end result of which is a situation that Israel and the US are going to be forced to deal with--because no one else on Earth is willing to stick their neck out on the chopping block of world opinion and fight evil. Big surprise there.

When all is said and done this problem will be dealt with. But who will the villified be? Will it be the Iranian President that recently threatened to wipe Israel off the map and wants to move the Jews to Europe? Will it be the evil mullahs of Iran that have been supporting world terrorism for years?

Of course not, it will be those nasty blood-sucking Jews and their lap dogs the Americans. You will see it on the streets in Paris, Damascus, Gaza, Brussels, San Francisco and wherever Cindy Sheehan happens to be hanging out. (As long as she isn't signing a book there might be some people there.)

Negotiating with terrorists and terrorist states is a waste of time. Diplomacy with terrorists should amount to a threat shortly followed by action. How many times must the world be taught that lesson before it finally sticks?
