US warns Iran on Straits of Hormuz through 'secret channel' ~ link ~ The policies of US/NATO/Israel and the Gulf Cooperation Council [GCC] (Saudi Arabia, Oman, UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain) are designed to lead to war with Iran/Syria/Lebanon/Palestine and Gaza. It remains to be seen, once war breaks out, if the various military forces of the GCC will engage in a war against fellow Arabs and Muslims while fighting on the side of the hated Israel and foreign (US and NATO) non-Muslim powers.

Netanyahu: International sanctions on Iran 'are working' ~ link ~ To paraphrase ex-President Bill Clinton's famous remark, "It depends on what your definition of 'is' is", it depends on what your definition of 'are working' is.

"We've said and I say again that all options are open ... President (Barack) Obama clearly and consistently says that he will do everything and resort to all necessary means to prevent Iran from producing nuclear weapons, and he means every word," Shapiro said in an interview with the Hebrew-language daily Ma'ariv, Xinhua reported.
The shipment had been smuggled into the country for anti-government armed groups. According to authorities, it included bombs manufactured by Israel.
The cargo is not the first one containing Israel-made weaponry meant for armed saboteurs fighting the central government in Damascus. On October 16, the Syrian ambassador to the Arab League told a meeting of the regional grouping in the Egyptian capital Cairo that Syrian security forces had seized Israel-manufactured weapons trafficked into the country through Lebanon's soil.
Youssef Ahmad said, "They are Israeli made automatic weapons,” which are used by the “armed opposition to kill the sons of our nation.”
"Iran is our neighbor," Dmitry Rogozin told reporters in Brussels. "And if Iran is involved in any military action, it's a direct threat to our security."
