Who Is Allah?

“Allah is a very beautiful word for God. Shouldn't we all say that from now on we will name God Allah? [...] What does God care what we call him?”

Have you ever heard any Iranian minister talking about taking out Dimona? Of course, not. And here you have leaders of the Israeli regime talking about red lines and attacking Iran. How come you disregard, ignore and tolerate those belligerent statements?
Only the new generation from both sides, 80 years from now, will sit down and have peace, after two generations from each side have expired. I allowed the LORD's specified 40 years limit. ;)

Iran’s President Spreads the Outrage in New York
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran stoked the anger of Israel, the United States, Syrian insurgents and gay rights advocates on Monday, using the first full day of his final visit to the United Nations as Iran’s leader to assert that he has no fear of an Israeli attack on his country’s nuclear facilities, regards the Israelis as fleeting aberrations in Middle East history, is neutral in the Syria conflict and considers homosexuality an ugly crime.
Frijoles, you cannot expect the Iranian President to think and talk like an American or an American President. Not all Americans believe in gay rights and neither do all love gays and homosexuals. Christian Americans hate gays.

One man's meat is another man's poison!

It may appear as an outrage in New York, but there was no outrage in the whole world.

Of course, he has the right to say that Iran has no fear of Israel. Why should Iran fear Israel? What can Israel do to Iran? Pakistan does not care a damn about Israel and nobody fears Israel in Pakistan. Is that a requirement that every country should be scared of Israel, a tin pot country?

Israel is the largest total recipient of direct economic and military assistance from the United States since World War II, and it was the largest annual recipient from 1976 to 2003.
Since the Iraq War began in 2003, Iraq has overtaken Israel as the largest annual recipient of U.S. aid.[4][5]
A major purchaser and user of U.S. military equipment, Israel is also involved in the joint development of military technology and regularly engages in joint military exercises involving United States and other forces.[2][3]
The relationship has deepened gradually over time, though, as Alan Dowty puts it, it was "not a simple linear process of growing cooperation, but rather a series of tendentious bargaining situations with different strategic and political components in each."[6]
During the Obama administration these relations reached new levels, with the two countries prepared to function in wartime as joint task forces.[7]
------
In other words, the US benefits directly because we produce the hardware and sell it to the Isrealis using our money. That is not going change much in the future - its too good of a deal for us. Jobs.
Where can I find that aid was a part of the treaty as mentioned by you? We know about the aid to israel.

The US has been in war time for the last four years under Obama. Right? So, where are the Israeli friends functioning as joint task forces in Afghanistan? How many IDF soldiers are helping the US in Afghansitan and laying down their lives for their American buddies?

Western diplomats walk out of Ahmadinejad speech

http://www.france24.com/en/20110922-united-na...

Diplomats from dozens of Western nations walked out of the UN General Assembly hall Thursday as Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad delivered scathing attacks on the US and Western Europe.

The two U.S. diplomats, who specialize in the Middle East, were followed out of the chamber by diplomats from more than 30 countries. They included the 27 European Union members, Australia, New Zealand, Somalia, Liechtenstein, Monaco, San Marino and Macedonia, a U.N. diplomat said.....

Publically the Israelis want NO part of that conflict because the last thing anyone needs is another excuse for rabid jihadists to attack Israel.

Privately, the Israelis have been directly in support, including on the ground, with the Kurds, for many many years.

I would be shocked if the Isrealis didnt exchange intelligence with the Americans as well on a daily basis.

It was part of the deal.

It might not been codified in the actual agreement, but every article states that it was part of the deal.

The General's son, who wrote the book, is an Israeli. Right? A spade must be called an spade. I do that but I do not see you do that.

You defend a brutal war-mongering regime and machine that terrorises her militarily weak neighbours.

And now that Iran has become a military might, it is not at all right with the US, Israel and a few others. The US can carry on with her hegemony over her puppets but no one is going to accept little Israel's hegemony in the region.

And trust me that Obama admin knows that it is a different world now.

Frijoles,

Dozens? 30 is only two and a half dozen.

They could not bear listening to the truth. Walkout was an easy way out.

Western diplomats are not the whole world. After the walkout, how many were left? Six times more than the Wester diplomats. Right?

No, Frijoles. You have not been able to prove that. The aid as you call it or bribery, as I call it, was never part f the peace agreement.

Israel is herself a rabid Jihadist, Frijoles. Her soldiers are worse than Jihadis. They will shoot you first and later, if you are alive, will tell you not to throw stones. The entire bunch in the region is of the same stock.
