“Project Iran” was set up during Israel’s Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gady Eisenkott’s talks with top US brass in Washington on June 29 for coordinated US-Israeli military operations against Iran. The project is headed by IDF’s Maj. Gen. Nitzan Alon.
A spectre of Iranian hostile acts is growing larger, including the blockage of the Strait of Hormuz to Arab oil exports – or even attacks on their oil fields and terminals.
As the outbreak of full-fledged war with Iran was looming larger day by day, four US-Israeli command groups were secretly established and are revealed here:
The Nuclear Command Group: This covers the key nuclear targets in Iran: weaponry, plutonium reactors, uranium enrichment plants and centrifuge production sites.
The Ballistic Command Group: This deals with Iran’s ballistic missile stocks and launch sites, both surface and underground silos, as well as missile production plants and institutes for missile research and development.
The Anti-Subversion Command Group: Combined under this heading are overt and covert operations against Iranian military and intelligence centers across the Middle East, especially in Syria, Lebanon, and Yemen, as well as responsibility for cyber warfare.
The Economic Command Group: Covers US sanctions against Iran. Israel’s contribution to this joint command is intelligence on Iran’s sanctions-busting stratagems at home and internationally.
Blooded ‘Calm’ – till Next Time!
Israel has launched an intense wave of strikes across the Gaza Strip after one of its soldiers was killed in gunfire along the border. The Israel Air Force (IAF) on Friday attacked some 60 targets belonging to the Hamas terrorist organization in Gaza and destroyed three compounds belonging to the group. The Islamist rulers of the Gaza Strip have said they reached an agreement with Israel to restore calm. It follows a day of deadly Israeli strikes after a soldier was killed along the border for the first time in years. Israel came out of its “wide-scale” operation against Hamas terror on Friday night, July 20, leaving Hamas holding the initiative for the next round of violence. The ceasefire was to take effect at midnight Friday night Jerusalem time.
FOOD for THOUGHT by Steven Shamrak
A lot can be said about Netanyahu – the bottom line he is a diplomat, who likes to be liked, and be in a spotlight as PM of Israel, especially internationally. That is why he destroyed any opposition inside of his own party, Likud, and does nothing drastic or risky to undermine his ‘likeability’! Sometimes, particularly during elections in Israel, he plays the role of ‘Zionist’, but only to maintain his PM status!

US & Israel hand Russia controlling role along Syria’s Israeli, Jordanian borders! The deal and can reveal for the first time that it provides for the handover to Russian responsibility of all parts of southern and southwestern Syria abutting on the Israeli and Jordanian borders, including, most importantly, surveillance and observation elevations that oversee all parts of Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Israel, Lebanon, and the eastern Mediterranean. (It has been proven that UN peace keepers are useless in South Syria and Lebanon. They quite often co-operate with Hezbollah against Israel!)
Knesset has passed into law a controversial bill that defines the country as an exclusively Jewish state. The “Jewish nation state” bill downgrades Arabic as an official language and says advancing Jewish settlement is a national interest. It also states that the “whole and united” Jerusalem is its capital. It was passed after a stormy session in the Knesset that lasted more than eight hours. Sixty-two MPs voted for the bill, with 55 against. Some clauses were dropped following objections by Israel’s president and attorney-general, including a clause that would have enshrined in law the creation of Jewish-only communities. (The Anti-Zionist sector – Arab MKs, Israel left, and its legal cronies voted and are against the bill!)
Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked explained the significance of her new legislation, which passed its final reading yesterday in the Knesset. The new law transfers initial jurisdiction over administrative matters in Judea and Samaria from the Supreme Court to the Jerusalem District Court. Shaked said that the law entailed “a big change, because now, all the petitions against settlement, which always basically start with a petition that seeks to carry out a demolition order that the Civil Administration gives, those petitions will pass, first of all, through the District Court. In the District Court, things work differently: You can verify facts more, and this is part of the normalization of Judea and Samaria, also for the Israeli citizens who live there, to equalize proceedings in Judea and Samaria with those in ‘smaller Israel.’” (Finally, the anti-Zionist is out of decision making about future of Jewish land!)
US lawmakers pressure the State Department to declassify the Obama-era report on number of refugees from Israel’s War of Independence. Republican Senator Ted Cruz: Access to report will help Americans have a transparent debate on US funding of UNRWA. The agency asserts that there are 5.1 million Palestinian refugees worldwide. The State Department’s assessment was that only 20,000 of the 700,000 (actually 460,000) Arab refugees who fled Palestine during the War of Independence are still alive!
A bill empowering the education minister to ban organizations critical of the Israeli military from entering schools was approved by the Knesset, giving the go-ahead to bar the Israeli NGO Breaking the Silence. “The situation in which organizations that seek to undermine the legitimacy of Israel and hound IDF soldiers can surreptitiously access Israel’s pupils – ended today,” said Education Minister Naftali Bennett.
In 2009 Obama helped Tzipi Livni win 28 seats and sent Hill to Jerusalem to argue that she should be made PM. In 1993 Bill Clinton successfully took Yitzhak Shamar out of office and gave Rabin the win. In 1977 Jimmy Carter helped Shimon Peres try to win the election against Menachem Begin. And the list goes on! The US has a long history of attempting to influence presidential elections in other countries – it’s done so as many as 81 times between 1946 and 2000.
The archive of Iranian nuclear documents seized by the Israeli Mossad from a Tehran warehouse in January shows that Iran’s program to build nuclear weapons “was almost certainly larger, more sophisticated and better organized” than was suspected. Iran remains determined to attain nuclear weapons!
Intel’s Israel operations are playing a key role in the overhaul of the company. 5G is set to transform the way we all use the internet by also revolutionizing the current network infrastructure. With greater bandwidth, more powerful processing capabilities and minimal delay (latency), the new generation of wireless connectivity will be able to support unprecedented communications and the transfer of massive amounts of data.
A United Nations Palestinian aid agency official said that the underlying problem facing the people of the Gaza Strip is that “they have nothing to lose,” as the population struggles to contend with a shattered economy that has become the focus of international attention in recent months.
(Anti-Israel international anti-Semites often claim that so-called Palestinians “have nothing to lose”. They have created a parasitic society, using the UN, and gave themselves the fictitious name “Palestinians” – professional refugees, in the 4th generation already! When Jews had nothing to lose – during the Inquisition, Russian pogroms, the Holocaust, or expulsion from Muslim states – many of them tried to escape, left and built a new life elsewhere. Many capable and self-respecting residents of Gaza do same. Others, the ‘lazy’ beneficiaries of international subsidies, must be convinced to leave – that is why President Trump has cut aid to the PA, and the is why Israel must let them go!)
The Israeli Labor Party announced the suspension and termination of its membership in the Socialist International organization after group adopts BDS resolution. (There is still some self-respect that remains in the Israel Left!)
QUOTE of the WEEK:
In his book “The Art of War”, Sun Tzu speaks of putting an army on “death ground” as a way to ensure that they will fight until total victory has been achieved. What the world repeatedly fails to realize is that Israel is the death ground for the Jewish people. It is the place where Jews stand as a people and say this far and no further! – a FaceBook posting
I Want Peace Too.
by Steven Shamrak.
It is shameful to see that so many Jewish organisations are supporting the same agenda which inevitably will lead toward the destruction of the state of Israel. Why do we need another Arab state?
We have no organisation that is prepared to break the glass ceiling of misplaced “political correctness” by advocating a pro-Israel peace plan:
1)Transfer of all Arabs from historically Jewish territories.
2)Re-unite ALL Jewish land.
Success was achieved in the compulsory exchange of population between Greece and Turkey in 1922. During partition of the Indian subcontinent, almost 12 million Hindus and Muslims were transferred. Unfortunately the population transfer was incomplete and it could be the reason why India and Pakistan still have unresolved issues today.
Have you heard of any Arab organisation supporting Israel? Arabs do not want to live in peace with Jews! The reason they insist on the right of return is to reach their main goal – Israel’s destruction by demographic imbalance. Arafat said that they can wait for 150 years “in the end we will throw them (Jews) to the sea”. Must we agree with this intention?
It is time to speak up against political opportunism, and educate some well wishing, but ill-informed people. All Jews want peace in Israel! At the same time, we must not surrender our own national aspirations and rights.

NOTE: The Term Palestinians is used as a commonly known definition, not as acceptance of the existence of a fake nation, which was created by Arab states, with the help of the Soviet Union, in 1960s in order to discredit and undermine legitimacy, and eventually destroy the Jewish state!
