Netanyahu and Nasrallah Warn of Iran War

Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah warned in a rare public appearance today that failure of the West to strike a deal with Iran over its nuclear program would spell “war in the region.”

Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also warned today that a “bad deal” with Iran on its nuclear program could lead to war.

Nasrallah spoke in Hezbollah's southern Beirut stronghold to mark the Ashura, one of the holiest days in Shia calendar. Netenyahu made his comments during an address to Knesset, Israel's parliament, in Jerusalem.

“What is the alternative to a deal with Iran and the countries of the world,” Nasrallah asked. “The alternative is war in the region.” (AFP, 13 November)
Nasrallah pointed the finger at Israel and Arab countries.

“Israel does not want any accord that would avert war in the region. It is regrettable that some Arab countries take the Israeli side in its murderous choices… It is regrettable that Netanyahu is the spokesman for some Arab countries,” said Nasrallah.
Meanwhile, Netanyahu’s aides challenged U.S. assertions to have offered Tehran only modest relief from sanctions during the latest round of the Geneva talks.
Reuters reported that Western proposal at Geneva could let Iran sell oil and gold in return for curbs on its nuclear activities. An Israeli minister told the news agency that the deal would negate up to 40 percent of the impact of sanctions, reducing pressure on Tehran to halt a program the West says has a military motive.

“I would go so far as to say that a bad deal could lead to the second, undesired option,” Netanyahu said, referring to military attacks on Iranian nuclear facilities. (Reuters, 13 November)

There are "good" and bad news for the both above shown personalities regarding their concerns about a war.

As of the last Monday the Russian nuclear-powered missile cruiser Pyotr Veliky, was assigned to lead the country's permanent naval task force in the Mediterranean, and another missile cruiser from the Russian Pacific fleet entered Alexandria in Egypt.
The Piotr Veliky carries the S-300 system and couple hundreads of different kind of larger missiles..

Previous command warship, the missile cruiser Moskva, was at present, assigned for other tasks.....

The senses are, that Kerry has stated that Iran must acknowledge, in order to get permission for its presence at the Geneva-2 conference (regarding Syria), that Assad will not be permitted to be present in Syria's political future...

Other senses are, that the Islamic Republic must acknowledge its discontinuing of all its major nuclear activities and possible capabilities, and lifting of some (unspecified) sanctions will be up to ......the Congress or next administrations.

So far, I have noticed that important statements by President Rouhani, last Saturday at the Majlis, ARE NOT present on the "Uskowi on Iran" website,
Aren't they too important for the authors and commentators, and instead of that, they elevate a BS of the top Zionist for the readers.


P.S I have advice to the new bloggers or readers, if you don't see comments to articles, try to enter this website couple times more.
Apparently someone created a situation, that it will be better for new visitors to not see comments, and read articles of Uskowi as well as to look at pictures, which assume to "testify", that the author(s) shares the most reliable and comprehensive NEWS about Iran.

Nasrallah has much reason to be worried as the Assads are still on the ropes and Iran is in a tight spot and looking at having to bend a knee and comply with inspection.

who is going to supply Lebanese Hezbollah with all those missiles that they rely upon to impose their will upon Lebanon?

A-F is such a conspiracy theorist. I dont think he believes in the stuff he writes regarding the issues with the comments & articles. Infact the "circumstances" happens to suite his agenda so he tries hard to make the most out it, over and over again.

AF-indeed the trick is to click it - enter [Uskowi on iran] till you reach the home page for Uskowi on Iran . it is from here that you can post and access comments .Failure to visit the home page means you can not post or see the other comments!.As easy and complicated as that !

I dont think that even the israelis would be so stupid or reckless as to use nuclear weapons,all that would do would be to turn the entire world against it and provide iran with all the justification it would ever need to go nuclear
