Crouching Iran, Hiding Israel: What is Between the Two Countries


In the context of a sharply aggravated crisis in the Middle East, one of the most acute moments is the real possibility of a sharp tightening of the confrontation between the main antagonists there - Tehran and Tel Aviv. About how "warm" and "friendly" feelings feed each other in these capitals, and there is no need to talk. One exchange of mutual "courtesies" between their leaders, in which the accusations of terrorism and epithets like "little Satan" are still quite innocent statements, which is worth it.


Could the old enmity grow into something more, result in an armed conflict, or is there at least some chance of the peaceful coexistence of these irreconcilable regimes?

Based on information periodically leaking into the Israeli media that has its source, according to reporters, leading analysts of the intelligence services of this country, this year should be decisive in all respects in the protracted confrontation. On the one hand, IDF intelligence officers are confident: the amount of enriched uranium needed to create nuclear weapons, Iran will possess until the end of 2020. To a large extent this is confirmed by quite risky statements made from Tehran itself. So, on January 16, Hassan Rouhani publicly told that today his country “is enriching uranium even more than before the conclusion of the nuclear deal” and “is progressing, despite increased sanctions pressure”. It is clear that such demarches do not add optimism or confidence in Israel tomorrow.

On the other hand, they still do not lose hope not so much on the sanity of the Iranian leadership as on the force of influence on it by representatives of world powers who are completely not interested in the outbreak of war with the use of atomic weapons in the Middle East. As such, Israel is no longer considered so much the United States as Russia and China, which have a very real influence on Tehran. Recently, Turkey has also added to this list, literally breaking into the Middle East “alignments” and by all means trying to become one of the main forces in them. It is the understanding by the leaders of these states of the moment that with the receipt of the nuclear “argument” Tehran will become even more unpredictable and even less manageable and will give Israel that small share of optimism that it has on the Iranian issue.

However, there is one more positive factor. In certain circles of both the political and military elites of Israel, they are convinced that the death of Kassem Suleimani gives the Israeli side a certain “room for maneuver” and, at least, some time to take a breath and try to build new strategies in the Iranian direction. This is due to the fact that his deputy, who replaced Suleymani as the head of Al-Quds, the IRGC, despite his fairly extensive experience and professionalism, is still a figure of a completely different level. In this regard, Israel is very hopeful of weakening (at least temporarily) Iran’s ties with those forces that they consider their main enemies: Hezbollah and others. And also - to the fact that Russia, due to its “disinterest in strengthening Tehran’s regional influence,” will at least not prevent the Israeli side from delivering “targeted” attacks aimed at weakening it. Certain events - for example, the recent IDF attack carried out by the IDF at the T4 military airbase in Syrian Homs, suggest that they have some ground under them.

There are two possible strategies regarding Iran, the adherents of which in Israel today have real weight and influence. "Hotheads" see in his current "weakening" a real chance for "dismantling the axis of evil of the pro-Iranian forces", which threaten the national security of the "promised land" and call for the most decisive offensive actions.

More restrained and realistic politicians believe that in no case should one try to “force” the situation, since the consequences can be completely unpredictable for the entire region, and their price is unbearable. In the end, the “total war” with Iran is not included in the plans of even the most fierce Israeli “hawks”. Apparently, in Israel they intend not to make “sudden movements” yet, but to wait and take a closer look at any actions of Tehran.

    My opinion is this. The main threat to Israel is the fall of the hegemon. In the market of which Jews have unlimited access (such as Russia for Belarus, only cooler), as well as direct funding from the United States. The loss of this market (or its catastrophic drying out), military and economic support from the United States, will lead Israel to the brink of dismantling. Actually, there will be many who will lead, but Israel is first in line.

      Suggest other options.
      For example, the United States is placed in such conditions when it is more expensive to stand up for a Middle Eastern partner.

        There is no reason to argue about the collapse of the USSR, but in recent years, well, 13, Russia every six months just falls to its knees, the economy falls apart and Russia becomes a regional power, and once again a week it attacks the Baltic states, Swedes, Norwegians, sometimes Finns, and attacks every day Poland and occupies Ukraine

          These billions account for approximately three percent of Israel’s state budget. And they do not go to our economy, but to the American one, since they can only be used to purchase American weapons.

            1. Always could be used only for the purchase of American weapons?
            2. Always only threw up weapons?
            3. Rumor has it that all Israeli military spending is about 4.5% of the budget, are you ready to donate 2/3 of the military budget?

            I have nothing against the Jews, and even against the state of Israel.
            But the facts do not need to be denied.
            Someone needs Israel and these people through the United States support it.
            Further there are many consequences and consequences. And analogies and allegories.

              Of course, someone needs Israel. Hebrews.
              Now for questions.
              1. In 1973 (Israel by that time was already a quarter century) when the United States began to give money to the Jewish state, this money could be used for the economy. Therefore, the share of military money was growing, and money for the development of the economy was declining. At the moment, money can only be used for the military sphere, and only for products of American manufacturers.
              2. Until 1962, the United States did not sell weapons to Israel. From the word "completely." In 1962, they sold (did not give, sold) several batteries of the Hawk air defense system. In 1965, they sold a couple of hundred M-48 tanks, in 1966 they began selling A-4 Skyhawk attack aircraft, in 1968 they sold Phantoms. All this was bought by Israel for their money.
              3. Rumor has it that due to the fact that we do not sell certain types of weapons to certain countries at the request of the Americans, the State of Israel loses the same amount every year.

                1) On an ongoing basis - in 1979, for refusing Sinai. Egypt and Jordan received roughly the same money for parity.
                2) In 1962, Kennedy decided to partially circumvent the American arms embargo on Israel, agreeing to sell Hawk.
                3) In 1965, Germany presented the tanks,
                4) 1967 - at the end of the year, after a six-day war, the Americans agreed to deliver A 4
                5) Phantoms sold at 68 - everything is correct
                6) Large losses - Amers give a weapon as a gift at a price higher than the market

                  2) Taki yes - 2
                  3) If the memory serves me right, the Germans presented the tanks in 1964, and in secret. And when it became known, Johnson began to sell already directly.
                  4) The Skyhawk Agreement was signed in 1966. Deliveries began in 1967.

                Of course, you know better about the Jews, but I would say the Israelis.
                Something the Jews of the whole world are not eager for in Israel, and I heard so many are eager / eager to leave it, that it was necessary for immigrants to impose a restriction on immigration, otherwise many passed through Israel to the USA and Europe.
                Even in Russia I know many Jews who could leave, but they don’t even think about it. The reasons for all are different, but generally the same - here they are better.

                1. Well, what is the problem of using the funds freed up due to American aid to the economy?
                The fact that sawyers in the US defense industry feed on this is not surprising. I have no doubt that in Israel itself, many also have a good idea.
                2. Separate facts, the total amount of "gifts" after all, you yourself perfectly imagine.
                3. But something still prevents Israel from becoming independent and sells what it wants to whom it wants, and to buy from whom it wants what it wants for whatever it wants? I am sure that a sober calculation. And lobbyists from the American defense industry and local corrupt officials are sure that it has nothing to do with it. As soon as another option is beneficial for Israel, it will immediately become a reality.

                Israel is something like North Korea, and certain forces also need it as an agent of influence, and it is also essentially sponsored.
                That does not detract from the merits of either the North Koreans or the Israelis.

          To begin, I advise you to read the UN General Assembly resolution number 181 on the division of the British Mandatory Territory of Palestine. Especially the part that describes under what conditions this resolution comes into force.

        A nuclear war is better on our borders than on our borders, and in the case of Iran vs Israel, this is also an actual reduction (by self-shooting) of the number of nuclear countries in the world, which is an unambiguous blessing both for the world as a whole and for the Russian Federation and the USA in particular .

        Geographic Clarification "at the Borders" - between the Russian Federation and Iran are the countries of Transcaucasia and Central Asia, as well as the water area of ​​the Caspian Sea.

          What are your fancy, as always, fantasies - a nuclear war in the BV, for example)). According to military forecasts, in the case of Iran using nuclear weapons and chemical weapons, together with a proxy attack, up to a million people will die in Israel, from 20 to 40 in Iran. Will Israel cease to exist after the death of 12% of the population and Hiroshima, approximately, infection around the foci of 2-3 nuclear Iranian strikes? It will not stop, even if half of the remaining population is dumped from the country. Will he then cease to possess nuclear weapons? On the contrary, it will increase it at a tower pace. Will Iran stop making nuclear weapons? Also, no, it will slowly return to the production of Hiroshima bombs in terms of power, maybe even hydrogen bungled. The problem is refugees, etc. which fall including to Russia, with a different mentality and a tower flown from a nuclear war. And oil - yes, it will jump))

    My opinion is this. The main threat to Israel is the fall of the hegemon. In the market of which Jews have unlimited access (such as Russia for Belarus, only cooler), as well as direct funding from the United States. The loss of this market (or its catastrophic drying out), military and economic support from the United States, will lead Israel to the brink of dismantling. Actually, there will be many who will lead, but Israel is first in line.

    I am 50 years old, and all these years since childhood I have heard this, the USA ALREADY DECLINED, AND ISRAEL IS IN GENERAL IN DECEMBER

    States exist for centuries and millennia, the duration of human life in this context is nothing. I don’t say that it will happen tomorrow or the day after tomorrow, but it will definitely happen. By the way, you can read about Basel 3, March 29, 2019.

    One question is all the countries named in the article that have nuclear weapons are adequate within the meaning of the article, and why Iran having received nuclear weapons will suddenly become inadequate, this is something proved, justified, no. North Korea received nuclear weapons and the Americans are no longer threatened with all sorts of threats, but they are kindly invited to negotiations. It will be the same with Iran, the snickering hegemon will also invite Iran to negotiations. He ruined this treaty on the Iranian nuclear issue.

      Taki nuclear pop, about which you write, will also not))
      There you need to hit in another, huge, much greater power, preferably a couple of times))

        I'm not talking about pop (thermal explosion), but about a self-sustaining fission reaction (nuclear explosion).

        An explosion of 6 kg of plutonium in an implosive charge is quite sufficient to start the reaction in about a ton of stable uranium 238 (the third step of a thermonuclear charge), and not just a few tens of kilograms of plutonium and 235 nuclear uranium in a reactor.

    We have been talking about the fall of the hegemon for many years, but it still does not fall

    A friend of mine (a work colleague) spoke of the following about the United States back in the 80s: TWO YEARS ROT, BUT WITH THIS STILL AND DECENTLY Smell.
    Then there was a fashionable phrase that American imperialism Rotting. It has been after I heard this phrase for almost 40 years, but nothing has changed. The truth is now not talking about decay, but about the fall laughing

    The author’s absolutely erroneous opinion: the exchange of nuclear strikes between Israel and Iran is in the interests of the Russian Federation, the USA and the Gulf countries, after which these two states will cease to be nuclear, one of them will cease to exist, and hydrocarbon prices will skyrocket.

    PS I always said that trump is our person bully

    Yeah. And then America will sign for Israel, shandarahnu across Iran, we will answer, because it will not be known exactly where the missiles are specifically aimed - on the Caspian coast of Iran or Russia - three to four hundred kilometers - it is difficult to determine by the beginning of the trajectory. And the nuclear mess will begin. And you all advocate an exchange of nuclear strikes between the two countries. It would be normal to consider that such an exchange is a global catastrophe ...

    Do not let them do nuclear weapons. And then in the Russian media (not all) they will grind that it was an act of aggression against a peaceful state. By the way, when the Soviets were in Afghanistan, Iran helped the souls very, very much. Newly-made friends, however.

    Alexander, thanks for the article. I will comment on one suggestion:

    On the one hand, IDF intelligence officers are confident that Iran will have the amount of enriched uranium needed to create nuclear weapons by the end of 2020.

    If you know the real situation with uranium enrichment in Iran, then not everything is so good. In reality, Iran is now enriching uranium up to 5% in the 235th isotope. In the limit, what Iran had previously done was trying to reach 20%, which, as everyone knows, is the border between HEU and LEU. Gram quantities were obtained by experimental laser enrichment, but this topic was curtailed due to the complexity of such a process. By the way, a similar project in the USA also failed.
    The main problem on the way to creating more advanced centrifuges is the lack of the necessary technological chain (equipment of the necessary processing accuracy, materials and alloys).

    The same Americans give at least a year to get nuclear weapons, but, in reality, I think much more.

      The Israelis patented the method of laser enrichment of Uranus in the 70s. Recently patented some kind of magnetic method. But since Israel has no lol nuclear weapons, then in practice they do not enrich anything.

        In the United States, from memory, GE bought SILEX technology from the Australians, which they, in turn, purchased from South Africa and finalized it. Then, when transferring rights, the Australians bargained for 10 or 20% of the profits from the enrichment of uranium with this method.

    The main problem on the way to creating more advanced centrifuges is the lack of the necessary technological chain (equipment of the necessary processing accuracy, materials and alloys).

    Not gram quantities were obtained, but kilogram ones with enrichment of up to 20% according to U235 and centrifuges. Something about 25 kg EMNIP (but this is not accurate, maybe more, you need to look for data). The main cascades were on IR-1 centrifuges and only at the Ford plant were there cascades with IR-2a and IR-4 centrifuges (a small number), more productive than IR-1. If now Iran will restore the number of centrifuges that was before the agreement, then to obtain weapons-grade uranium, they will need about 10 months and a productivity of 190 SWU (separation work units). If the centrifuges will be a new generation, types IR-000, IR-5, IR-6 and IR-7 - then faster. But from it is still necessary to produce. The number of these new centrifuges is from 8 to 10 pieces of each type. And the new IR-30s are still being tested.

    Oh come on - no one has rebuilt the nuclear reactor in Dimon since its commissioning in 1964. Moreover, the Israeli parliament in recent years has held many closed meetings on the topic of exhausting the life of this reactor and planning reconstruction activities (which have not yet been implemented).

    Twice they upgraded as much as my sclerosis doesn’t change me, and no one knows what the modernization was. But the power was raised very decently. From 40 MW of thermal power in 1963 to 70 in the 70s and up to 140-150 in the 80s ....

    Certain events - for example, the recent IDF attack carried out by the IDF at the T4 military airbase in Syrian Homs, suggest that they have some ground under them.
    Bullshit.
    Striking at T 4 airbase in addition to the destruction of 10-100 people of Iranian personnel and material resources, what did Israel achieve?
    Nothing at all.
    The manufacture of weapons of mass destruction, if it happens, is not on the territory of Syria.
    And they will not hand over it to fraternal terrorists.
    Therefore, Israel has one way - to strike at Iran.
    But you cannot fly all of Syria on airplanes and you cannot return back.
    And Iran’s air defense can shoot (the Ukrainian side took over and showed what would happen if ....).
    So it turns out that by striking Iranian specialists in Syria, Israel, in addition to supporting the barmaley, is not achieving anything.
    And this puts him in a very bad light - a country supporting terrorists.
    For this it is possible and necessary to punish.
    This is a political picture.
