PRESS RELEASE


Israeli Journalist Calls for Obama
To Stop Israeli Attack on Iran

Aug. 15, 2012 (EIRNS)—U.S. President Barack Obama is the person responsible if madman Benjamin Netanyahu and his Defense Minister Ehud Barak go to war within weeks, because only his public opposition can actually prevent such a war, argued veteran Israeli reporter Amir Oren, in an op-ed published Aug. 12 in Ha'aretz.

In the piece entitled, "Obama must speak out against war with Iran," Oren said "This is the last chance—for Obama and the Israelis—to say their piece beforehand, instead of regretting their silence afterward." Oren is the gutsy reporter who, in 2001, broke the story that the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) had been studying the 1943 military tactics of the Nazi SS against the Jewish Resistance in the Warsaw Ghetto, for application against the Palestinians of the West Bank and Gaza—a story later confirmed by then Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's press spokesman.

The responsiblity to stop the Israeli crazies in Bibi's faction lies with Obama, says Oren:

"Without clear statements at the highest levels—publicly, not halfheartedly behind closed doors—the impression will remain that the Americans have come to terms with such an operation. By the time they deny that this is the case, it might be too late."
