Who really leaked Israel's war plan?
28 Menachem Av 5772
An American blogger, Richard Silverstein, has published what he claims is Israel's war plan to attack Iran and eliminate its nuclear weapons program on his blog Tikun Olam in a post entitled "Bibi's Secret War Plan."
In a follow-up post, he writes:
About a week ago, I received the document from a known and trusted source who is, as I’ve often said here, a former Israeli government minister. It was in turn leaked to him by an IDF officer.
Unbeknownst to my source, the original IDF leaker also gave the document to a member of the Fresh forum, an Israeli gossip and politics forum. That Fresh member wrote a largely fictional account that included very limited portions of the actual document which I published in full.
Without accusing anyone outright, I'll just say that both "former government minister" (now President) Shimon Peres and "former government minister" (and disgraced former Prime Minister) Ehud Olmert are on record as being opposed to a strike on Iran. However, the sad thing is it could be any number of self-serving, traitorous bastards who are part of the regime.
The good news, though, is that the G-d of Israel is ultimately the One Who leaked this information. He had any number of ways to prevent it, but He didn't. Gam zu l'tov. Maybe He wants to push it forward. We are always on His timetable. Or maybe, for the sake of teshuvah, He wants everyone to understand exactly what is at stake and to prepare ourselves accordingly. We can't presume to know anything for sure, except this. Ultimately HE is the One in control and everything is for our good!
