Another reason to attack Iran

Shavua tov - a good week to everyone.

As if we needed more reasons to attack Iran's nuclear program, another reason was given on Friday in Vienna: The United Nations' feckless nuclear arms control proliferation chief Mohamed ElBaradei has promised to resign if Iran is attacked.
The report quoted him as warning that any military offensive in Iran would turn the Middle East region "into a fireball."

"I don't believe that what I see in Iran today is a current, grave and urgent danger. If a military strike is carried out against Iran at this time ... it would make me unable to continue my work," said the IAEA chief.

ElBaradei, repeatedly stressing that a military strike would be the worst result for the region, added that an attack would give Iran more motivation to obtain nuclear power, Reuters reported.

"If you do a military strike, it will mean that Iran, if it is not already making nuclear weapons, will launch a crash course to build nuclear weapons with the blessing of all Iranians, even those in the West," he predicted.
If what Iran is currently doing is not a "current, grave and urgent danger," I don't know if there is anything they could possibly do that would be such a danger in ElBaradei's mind. As to Iran's motivation to obtain nuclear power, it is clear that they already have one, and that attacking them cannot possibly make it greater.

I wonder if ElBaradei will resign - or even threaten to resign - if God forbid Israel is attacked with nuclear weapons from Iran. Note that he has never mentioned that possibility.

As you know - I'm of the view Israel should do whatever is needed to survive. She does not need approval from El-Baradei, from the Russians, the Europeans or any one else to take the steps necessary to defang Iran. Its a natural, human and moral right of a people to to deter their own demise with all the means at their disposal. If the words, "Never Again" means anything after the Holocaust, then Israel is bound to act to prevent another one from ever happening to the Jewish people.

Have El-Baradei and his worthless crew ever found anything that would indicate that Iran or Iraq or, indeed, any Muslim nation has anything even remotely related to nuclear armaments?
Do you really think they will?
El-Baradei is an Egyptian and a Muslim. Suficient reason for any sane person or entity to be highly suspicious of his immaculate record of nuclear
