“Israel Hayom”, http://bit.ly/1b6bGZ3, July 12, 2013

The “Taqiyya” concept constitutes Islam-sanctioned dissimulation, deception and concealment of inconvenient data, aimed at shielding Islam and “believers” from “infidels” and hostile Muslims.

Effective Sanctions on Iran – Oxymoron

“Israel Hayom”, http://bit.ly/SWcN0J, November 18, 2012

Twenty eight years of unilateral and multilateral US-led sanctions, accompanied by diplomatic pressure and cyber sabotage, have failed to deter Iran’s Ayatollahs from approaching nuclear capabilities.

Israel’s Unilateral Action – a Test of Sovereignty

“Israel Hayom”, bit.ly/OqqP7C, August 17, 2012

surrendering Israel’s inalienable right of self-defense would undermine Israel’s sovereignty, erode its posture of deterrence, jeopardize its existence, fuel regional chaos and undermine US interests in the Middle East.

Saudis Prefer US Military Preemption

“Israel Hayom”, http://bit.ly/MI3Mpq, June 24, 2012

The discussion about the cost of a pre-emptive strike on Iran's nuclear facilities is valuable only if intended to advance the attack and neutralize the possible retaliation by Iran and its allies.

Western policy-makers grow increasingly-reconciled to co-existence with a nuclear Iran. They assume that, notwithstanding the radical rhetoric, the Iranian leadership is pragmatic, cognizant of its limitations, unwilling to expose its people to devastating Western retaliation and considering nuclear capabilities as a tool of deterrence – and not as an offensive weapon – against the US, NATO and Israel.

 

However, a nuclear Iran would constitute a clear and present danger to global security and peace, which must not be tolerated.  In order to avert such peril, it is incumbent to disengage from illusions and engage with realism.

 

Unlike Western leaders, the Iranian revolutionary leadership is driven by ideological and religious conviction, bolstered by ancient imperialist ethos:
