Is Israel Preparing a Ground Assault on Iran?

Aug. 17 (LPAC)–According to an article quoted in the Indian news
daily {The Times of India} on its front page, an unnamed British
official said that “We know the Israelis have been active in the
Iraq desert, it would appear preparing forward bases for a ground
assault. Bombing Iranian nuclear installations will most likely
be a part of their plan, but the only way to confirm they have
destroyed what they need to is to put boots on the ground…. It
is a very big concern. Iran would have to retaliate, putting the
region into an extremely dangerous situation,” he added.
The article also said Israel is preparing for a ground
attack on Iran before Christmas, after conducting commando dry
runs in the Iraq desert.
Meanwhile, in Israel, the Netanyahu-Barak duo’s bellicose
stance against Iran’s nuclear program has sparked a pushback in
Israeli society. More than 400 Israelis, including prominent
academics, have signed an online petition appealing to Israel
Defense Forces (IDF) pilots to disobey any orders to bomb Iran.
“You have the option of saying ‘No,’” the petition addressed to
the pilots reads, according to the daily {Ha’aretz}. “Certainly,
this is not a simple option. It involves profound professional
and moral dilemmas, and carries the risk of losing a career which
is important to you and also the possibility of being prosecuted.
Nevertheless, it is your duty to consider most carefully and
seriously the possibility that by saying the little word ‘No,’
you will be rendering an important and vital service to the State
of Israel and all who live here.”
