Message : No More War.

Iranian warships have entered the Mediterranean Sea for only the second time since the 1979 revolution.
 *Mr Netanyahu effectively brings with him an ultimatum, demanding that unless the president makes a firm pledge to use US military force to prevent Iran acquiring a nuclear bomb, Israel may well take matters into its own hands within months.  Two years ago, Barack Obama reportedly left Benjamin Netanyahu to kick his heels in a White House anteroom, a snub delivered to show the president's irritation over Israel's settlement policy in the West Bank. In May, the Israeli prime minister struck back, publicly scolding his purse-lipped host for the borders he proposed of a future Palestinian state.When the two men meet in Washington on Monday, Mr Obama will find his guest once more at his most combative. But this time, perhaps as never before, it is the Israeli who has the upper hand.The path on which he is leading the Israelis is fraught with peril for their tiny Jewish nation . . . and potentially for Jews worldwide. He is determined to take the United States and the American people on the “joy ride” with him, which is utter madness.Not a single drop of American blood should ever be spilled to protect or defend Israel, period. It is on its own, sink or swim. It is a pariah state worldwide because of Netanyahu; and Barack Obama was right in reaching out to the Islamic world—and he must block all warmongering actions by Netanyahu.The press has been feeding anxiety about the development of  nuclear power in Iran because it sees Iran as an interfering nuisance in Afghanistan (with which it shares a border) and the Middle East -fair enough,but other powers (Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and of course Britain France and the USA) are interfering as well; yet surely the core issue is nuclear power and its ability to branch out into nuclear weapons -Israel started it after all, so its a bit rich for a state that has actually attacked and occupied its neighbours over nearly 70 years to complain about Iran -attacks will not stop the development, and as we speak, Saudi Arabia, Syria and Turkey are moving towards the same objectives: nuclear power -and though I would rather it were otherwise, with capital from Russia, China and eventually India, the nuclearisation of the Middle East continues and there seems to be nothing we can do about it.


*President Obama gave a forceful defense of his administration’s commitment to Israel’s security on Sunday, using a speech to a pro-Israel lobbying group to take on critics on the Republican presidential campaign trail who have called for a harder American line to rein in Iran’s nuclear ambitions.“I do not have a policy of containment,” Mr. Obama said, to applause from the huge crowd in the cavernous hall at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. “I have a policy to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. And as I’ve made clear time and again during the course of my presidency, I will not hesitate to use force when it is necessary to defend the United States and its interests.”
Why exactly is it OK for Israel, a country with a history of being trigger happy, to have nuclear arms and not for Iran? Indeed the one sure way to get Iran to the negotiating table would be for Israel to offer to give up its atomic weapons if Iran would suspend its nuclear program.

We as a country should be shocked at how openly active a foreign country and its US supporters, a very small but quite moneyed minority of our population, are in lobbying our Congress. Is there a single member of Congress who doesn't receive a healthy contribution from the AIPAC each year to their campaign funds?
Anjad Pakistan, is the ground zero for terroism. Look at the latest books on Pakistan
