Iran / Hamas Connection

What Will U.S. Do as Iran Admits It Is Behind Rocket Attacks on Israel?

by: Tad Cronn

Israel is under siege again, being pummeled by rockets fired by Hamas in the Gaza Strip  and now from the Egyptian Sinai Peninsula.

The assault, which has seen almost 40 rockets launched into Israel in the past few days, has even targeted Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, Israel’s capital.

[Common Constitutionalist adds: In fact, since 2009, Hamas and others have fired over 8,000 rockets into Israel. That’s more ordinance than Nazis threw at England during the entire Second World War.]

On Friday, Iranian officials announced that its rockets are being used in the  attacks. On the same day, it was announced that Iran is stepping up its uranium  enrichment.

According to a source in the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, cited by World Net  Daily, Iran has large stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and it has  provided those weapons to Hamas. Also, Iran has military advisers in Gaza to  teach the Palestinians how to set up and operate the missile systems.

The same source said the attacks were meant as a message to Israel that any  attack on Iran would be countered by Iran’s puppets.

The U.S. so far has not responded to the attacks on Israel, being too wrapped  up in evading questions about what really happened in Benghazi, Libya, on  September 11.

The U.S. response will be crucial because the current attacks are not  occurring in a vacuum. They are just the latest move in the game President Obama  has been  playing in the Middle East during his first term in office.

With one hand, the Obama Administration has been dealing with the United  Nations to try to pressure Iran into giving up its nuclear weapons program. It  has also reportedly been involved in secret face-to-face talks with Iran.

With the other hand, though, Obama has been toppling governments in the  Mideast and North Africa by funding and arming “resistance” groups that more  often than not turn out to be linked to al Qaida, our supposed enemy.

In Benghazi, information leaked by Administration sources  suggests the  CIA was involved with funneling heavy arms and personnel to the Syrian “rebels,” who are fighting the Syrian government, which is backed by Iran. Making the  situation more complex, Syria and Iran are both supported by Russia, for whom Obama has vowed to be more “flexible” after the election.

The attack in Benghazi was led by Ansar al Sharia, an al Qaida-linked group  that has its strings pulled by Iran. Many of the Ansar al Sharia members in  Libya were in fact armed by the U.S. during its effort to overthrow Moammar Gadhaffi.

U.S.-Israeli relations have been strained almost since the day Obama came  into office. It’s entirely possible that he will wash his hands of Israel’s  problems. If he does, this will likely be seen by the Iranians and Russians as  further signs of weakness.

Mitt Romney said during the debates that he would support the rebels in Syria  and Israel, so perhaps his policy wouldn’t have been all that different on the  surface. But support for Israel, the only functioning democracy in the region,  is crucial to the region’s politics.

Now that the U.S. has foolishly re-elected the Man Who Would Be King, the  U.S. is poised to have the rug pulled out from under its feet and being forced  to watch the ascendancy of a new Muslim Caliphate allied with Russia and  Iran.
