    TV: Israel security heads halted Iran attack alert - Yahoo! News
    JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel's prime minister and defense minister ordered the military to go on alert to prepare to attack Iran's nuclear program two years ago, but backed off following opposition from top security officials, an Israeli news show claims in a report to be aired Monday night.

    A pre-broadcast news release from Channel 2's Uvda (Fact) show did not say whether a final decision to attack was made.

    However, it says the alert order quickly met opposition from then-military chief Lt. Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi, who warned that Israel's enemies would notice the measure and that in itself might touch off a war.

    "This accordion produces music when you play it," the statement quotes him as saying. "This is not something you do if you are not sure you want to end up with a military operation."

    The statement also said Meir Dagan, then heading the Mossad spy agency, accused Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak of acting illegally by not seeking formal Cabinet approval.

    Netanyahu and Barak "simply tried to steal a decision to go to war," Uvda quotes him as saying.

    Off the record, Meir Dagan should REALLY learn to keep his mouth shut when it comes to Iran.

    Mossad is no political movement, and never was. in his corrent position he should know when his worlds do nothing but wrong to the Jewish people.

    Sure would like to know your reasoning...Mine is simple...Israel agrees to create a two-state solution or better yet a Confederation which alows both states self-government and open trade borders ans security needs....

    A big piece of the quest to end Islamic justification for Terrorism...Not all the reasons, and Israel and America should be on the side of History and help the ME continue its march towards Democracy.

    Israel agreed to nothing. Leaders may have talked about a Palestinian state in debates, but no general agreement was ever to that, and no clear policy on the subject.

    No leader can decide on such a thing without a consensus of the Israeli people. Any decision of giving, or giving up lands, or any step which might change the Israeli-Palestinian status quo in such a drastic manner, must pass an referendum. None of it was made, ever.

    My statement comes from the point that Netanyahus domestic policy has brought an undeniable risk to the Israeli people. Settlers who are obligated to leave their homes don't find an answer from the government. The constant war in the south is not dealt with in the Knesset or in the "seventh forum", the Trachtenberg's committe conclusions stated perfectly that a change must be made in the Israeli market, the changes requirted were not made, at least 70% of Holocaust survivors live in poverty, the state stole money from IDF disabled, corruption in the government is still high. in short, non of the Israeli problems were solved in the last few years, but only got worse.

    This is what happens to all Military powers when they get bogged down in long conflicts. Although they keep their external enemies at bay the cost of keeping a war footing bankrupts the economy...It happened to Rome, England, America, and now Israel..

    Peace is the only answer...Even America can not pacify this vast region with military power.

    Why is Ehud Barak leaving Israeli politics?
    November 26, 2012 - Ehud Barak, Israel's defense minister, shocked many with his announcement Monday that he's leaving politics. Barak was seen as a moderating influence in Benjamin Netanyahu's government.
