Israel meinte es ernst

Glaubt man Jonathan Stelle heute im Guardian, dann wollte Israel den Iran mit der Drohung eines möglichen Luftangriffs auf die Nuklearanlagen nicht nur psychologisch unter Druck setzen, sondern meinte es tatsächlich ernst.

Steele zitiert hochrangige europäische Diplomaten, die wiederum Interna aus einem Vier-Augen-Gespräch zwischen US Präsident Georg W.Bush und dem damaligen israelischen Premierminister Ehud Olmert am 14. Mai dieses Jahres auszuplaudern wussten.

The sources work for a European head of government who met the Israeli leader some time after the Bush visit. Their talks were so sensitive that no note-takers attended, but the European leader subsequently divulged to his officials the highly sensitive contents of what Olmert had told him of Bush’s position. (Guardian)

Damit kann jeder selbst nachschauen, welche europäischen Regierungschef einige Zeit nach Bush nach Israel gefahren sind.

Besagte europäische Diplomaten wollen wissen, dass Olmert in diesem Gespräch Bush auf eine mögliche Militäraktion gegen den Iran angesprochen, Bush aber abgelehnt habe.

The then prime minister, Ehud Olmert, used the occasion of Bush’s trip to Israel for the 60th anniversary of the state’s founding to raise the issue in a one-on-one meeting on May 14, the sources said. “He took it [the refusal of a US green light] as where they were at the moment, and that the US position was unlikely to change as long as Bush was in office”, they added.

Bush habe derartige Pläne aus zwei Gründen abgelehnt.

Bush’s decision to refuse to offer any support for a strike on Iran appeared to be based on two factors, the sources said. One was US concern over Iran’s likely retaliation, which would probably include a wave of attacks on US military and other personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as on shipping in the Persian Gulf.

The other was US anxiety that Israel would not succeed in disabling Iran’s nuclear facilities in a single assault even with the use of dozens of aircraft. It could not mount a series of attacks over several days without risking full-scale war. So the benefits would not outweigh the costs.

Auch einen israelischen Alleingang habe der US Präsident abgelehnt.

Even if Israel were to launch an attack on Iran without US approval its planes could not reach their targets without the US becoming aware of their flightpath and having time to ask them to abandon their mission.

“The shortest route to Natanz lies across Iraq and the US has total control of Iraqi airspace”, the official said. Natanz, about 100 miles north of Isfahan, is the site of an uranium enrichment plant.

In this context Iran would be bound to assume Bush had approved it, even if the White House denied fore-knowledge, raising the prospect of an attack against the US.

Ein Sprecher Olmerts hat gegenüber dem Guardian den Bericht dementiert …

Mark Regev, Olmert’s spokesman, tonight reacted to the Guardian’s story saying: “The need to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons is raised at every meeting between the prime minister and foreign leaders. Israel prefers a diplomatic solution to this issue but all options must remain on the table. Your unnamed European source attributed words to the prime minister that were not spoken in any working meeting with foreign guests”.

… was nicht unbedingt bedeuten muss, dass die Darstellung falsch ist. Und wenn sie richtig sein sollte, dann wäre Steele auch kaum zu widersprechen, wenn er schlussfolgert …

Bush’s refusal to support an attack, and the strong suggestion he would not change his mind, is likely to end speculation that Washington might be preparing an “October surprise” before the US presidential election. Some analysts have argued that Bush would back an Israeli attack in an effort to help John McCain’s campaign by creating an eve-of-poll security crisis.

Nehmen wir es als das vorläufige letzte Wort in dieser Sache.

    Zumindestens wird die Drohkullise glaubhaft verstärkt:

    TEL AVIV, 05. Oktober (RIA Novosti). Israel bereitet sich nach Angaben des französischen Außenministers Bernard Kouchner auf einen Krieg gegen Iran vor und wird den Mullah-Staat angreifen, bevor dieser sich mit einer Atombombe bewaffnet. http://de.rian.ru/world/20081005/117441563.html
