A Dangerous Israeli Move in 2010? A Lot of Buzz on How Iran and U.S. Might’ve Reacted

Even as shots are fired between Israel and its neighbors on two fronts, there is also buzz about Yossi Melman’s report that an order issued by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu could have led to escalation — even war — with Iran.

Melman (see below), co-author of Spies Against Armageddon, explained what it was that practically disgusted the military chief of staff and the head of the Mossad, at the time that the order was given in 2010 to raise the level of readiness for imminent war.

Paul Pillar, at http://nationalinterest.org/blog/paul-pillar/netanyahus-game-the-two-gulfs-7721 , discusses the issue based on Melman’s revelations.

Israel’s intelligence agencies and military are now monitoring events in Syria, not far from Israeli towns and positions on the Golan Heights.  Israel launched a missile into Syria, as a warning shot after reporting that a Syrian army shell — probably aimed at rebels — exploded on the Israeli side.   In Gaza, some groups — though not necessarily the Hamas-led government there — fired rockets into Israel; and Israeli retaliation was severe, killing and wounding Palestinians.

With the Israeli election set for January 22, the background environment is anything but calm.
