High-speed R2 centrifuges in Iran
US to Iran ahead of Geneva: Carry on enriching uranium, but cut down on advanced IR-2 centrifuges
DEBKAfile Special Report October 14, 2013, 11:48 AM (GMT+02:00)

Iranian hardliners urge pushing Barack Obama harder after he agreed to let Iran’s nuclear program continue, including uranium enrichment up to 20 percent purity, and is only holding out for a cap on the high-speed IR2 centrifuges. This ace, say the hardliners, could make Washington drop demands to remove enriched uranium stocks from the country. debkafile: Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s four stipulations for a nuclear accord with Iran vanished on the road to Geneva, except for Secretary John Kerry’s vague comment “…we are mindful of Israel’s security needs.”

Israeli Air Force in long-range drill
Netanyahu’s show of muscle comes too late to deter a nuclear Tehran
DEBKAfile Exclusive Analysis October 11, 2013, 7:39 PM (GMT+02:00)

Israeli Air Force F-15 and F-16 fighter squadrons this week carried out exercises testing their capability to conduct missions at long ranges, as a message to Tehran that Israel’s military option against its nuclear program is alive. However, it is by now an open secret that the battle against a nuclear Iran is lost. The secret understandings President Barack Obama negotiated with Tehran are ready for endorsement at the P5+1 negotiations opening in Geneva on Oct. 15. And they leave Iran with much of its nuclear capacity in place.

Binyamin Netanyahu revives military option
Israel and Saudi Arabia are coordinating policies to counter US détente with Iran
DEBKAfile Special Report October 2, 2013, 9:15 PM (GMT+02:00)

Associates of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu Wednesday, Oct. 2, leaked word to the media that Israel was in contact with Saudi and Gulf representatives to align their policies for offsetting President Barack Obama’s advancing rapprochement with Iran and any US easing-up on the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program. These exchanges include recent visits to Israel of high-ranking Gulf officials and will extend to joint lobbying efforts in the US Congress to overrule Obama administration’s outreach to Tehran. This leak signals a widening of the breach between Israel and the US president.

DEBKAfile Exclusive Analysis September 30, 2013, 9:14 PM (GMT+02:00)

President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s get-together at the White House Monday, Sept. 30 turned into an amicable joust over their differences on how to handle Iran’s nuclear program.  Obama did not endorse Netanyahu’s demands that Iran completely dismantle its military nuclear program, halt uranium enrichment and face tougher sanctions if its nuclear development continues while international negotiations are afoot. As a friendly gesture, Obama did agree not to remove any options from the table, including the military one, for preventing a nuclear Iran.

A chemical weapons store
Russia, Iran, Damascus may crank up border tensions to weaken Netanyahu’s hand in America
DEBKAfile Special Report September 29, 2013, 9:08 AM (GMT+02:00)

Western military sources predict an upsurge of tension this week along Israel’s borders with Syria and Lebanon, timed for Binyamin Netanyahu’s White House meeting with President Barack Obama Monday, Sept. 30, and his address to the UN General Assembly the next day, Oct. 1. Moscow, Tehran and Damascus may exploit Israel’s weak moment after being pushed out in the cold by the Obama administration’s pursuit of new relations with Tehran, by provoking Israel into a military response and presenting it as the neighborhood warmonger and disrupter of US-Russian diplomacy.

Iranian president Hassan Rouhani lands in New York
Washington and Europe rush headlong towards accepting a nuclear Iran
DEBKAfile Special Report September 24, 2013, 9:49 AM (GMT+02:00)

President Obama is running eagerly toward rapprochement with a nuclear Iran notwithstanding its declared ambition to destroy Israel. Sources close to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu say he is determined when addressing the UN this month to tear the false veil off Iran’s face – even if he is a lone voice. When he exposed as fraudulent Rouhani’s claims that Iran’s nuclear program was peaceful, no one in the West was listening. And at home, people ask what happened to Netanyahu’s solemn pledge to stop Iran getting a nuclear bomb.

Israeli soldier Gal Kobi shot dead by a Palestinian sniper
Why has Mahmoud Abbas given the nod to lone wolf Palestinian terror?
DEBKAfile Exclusive Analysis September 23, 2013, 11:34 AM (GMT+02:00)

Secretary of State John Kerry has kept a tight lid on the bubbling Palestinian stew by forbidding Israeli and Palestinian negotiators to publicly give the game away about the true state of their talks, which are stuck. This has let Kerry pretend the talks are gong well; Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu avoid giving up settlements to keep his coalition intact; and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas to quietly let terrorists partly off the leash for attacks on the Israeli military. Saturday and Sunday, two soldiers were murdered by Palestinians.

Obama softens on nuclear Iran: Keep components, just promise not to weaponise them
DEBKAfile Exclusive Analysis September 18, 2013, 8:55 AM (GMT+02:00)

President Barack Obama has only one demand of Tehran: “Iran would have to demonstrate its own seriousness by agreement not to weaponise nuclear power,” he said Wednesday, Sept. 18. He thus took at his word Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who declared the day before: “We are against nuclear weapons. And when we say no one should have nuclear weapons, we definitely do not pursue it ourselves either.” debkafile: This exchange was choreographed in advance, leaving Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu behind US steps and in the dark.

Damascus, Hizballah jack up threats on Israel in absence of Obama-Netanyahu coordination on Syria
DEBKAfile Special Report September 2, 2013, 11:00 PM (GMT+02:00)

Senior IDF circles are concerned by the unrealistic mood of the country on New Year’s eve as though Israel and the US were fully coordinated on Syria and Hizballah and the danger of Syria repeating its chemical attack – this time on Israel – had receded. In fact, since US President Barack Obama aborted the US strike on Syria, Damascus and Hizballah have stepped up their threats to attack Israel in the coming weeks, prompting a warning from Netanyahu that “Anyone wishing to do us harm should know what awaits him.”

Obama delays Syria strike indefinitely by turning decision over to Congress
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report August 31, 2013, 10:04 PM (GMT+02:00)

President Barack Obama shocked a tense world Saturday, Aug. 31, when he dodged a decision on a US strike on Syria by referring it to Congress. In a speech to the American people, he said the use of chemical weapons by Bashar Assad must be “confronted not just investigated,” but then said, “We are ready to strike whenever we choose. This operation could take place tomorrow, next week, or next month. In so saying, Obama granted Assad and Co. time galore for counter-moves and put Israel in a tight spot.
