Safe Mode: On
Shock Video Imagines Iran Nuclear Attack on Israel

An apocalyptic vision of Israel coming under nuclear attack has been portrayed in a video, which its creator warned could become reality if Iran's atomic programme is not halted soon.

The date is February 2013 and a huge mushroom cloud rises from a nuclear explosion as war planes streak across the skies.



The short video, complete with disaster movie special effects, has already had 100,000 hits on YouTube where it has been posted under the title "Israel's Last Day".



It is the work of amateur Israeli filmmaker Ronen Barany who said: "It took Hitler five or six years to wipe out six million Jews.



"Ahmadinejad will do it in five or six minutes with one or two bombs. That's why I want to wake up the world."



The debate over the threat posed by Iran has dominated public debate in the Jewish state for years.



But in recent months the talk of a possible pre-emptive military strike against Iran's nuclear facilities has reached fever pitch, leading some Israelis to plan for the consequences of the predicted retaliation by Iran and its allies.



There is now a waiting list for government provided gas masks, and the authorities in towns and cities across the country have posted details of the available bomb shelters.



Many Israeli houses and apartment buildings, including Mr Barany's have group shelters down in the basements.



But in a sign that, like most Israelis, he is not yet feeling any real sense of panic, he admitted when he showed Sky News the dark sealed room, piled high with old furniture, that he had no plans to prepare it for use just yet.



"It's actually only the second time I've been down here, but my son is practising drills to go to the shelters at school," he said.



Opinion polls suggest the Israeli public is divided over the wisdom of striking against Iran, with most favouring a diplomatic rather than a military solution.



But the same polls show the majority believe a nuclear Iran would pose an existential threat to the state of Israel.



Israel's leaders have made it clear they will not allow Iran to reach that point.



This leaves the big question as to how loud the clock is ticking and whether any decision has been made to attack.



There have been numerous reports - many of them quoting unnamed Israeli officials - suggesting Israel intends to strike Iran's nuclear facilities before the end of this year.



But all of the leaks may be part of a plan. "I wouldn't be too taken in by all of the bellicose rhetoric," said David Horovitz, editor of the online newspaper Times of Israel.



"It is in Israel's interests to let the world think that it is prepared to strike, precisely because it may not really want to do it," Mr Horovitz said.



"Those who know what's going on don't talk," a senior Israeli official told me referring to all of the leaked reports of timetables. "And those who speak don't know," he added.



So military action might be imminent or it might be a distant, last option only being trumpeted to add to the diplomatic pressure on Iran and to convince countries like Russia to get on board in imposing sanctions.



The only certainty is that if Israel does intend to strike against Iran it will not announce the date first.

  • Pre-emptively attacking Iran won't stop them from getting nukes. It will only make them want revenge

  • If the Israeli's start a war, they should be forced to fight it. Until Israel feels it is strong enough to fight it's wars without the aid of the U.S.A., they should avoid this sort of bullshit. The only thing they are doing is trying instigate war.

      A history?
      Are you referring to one incident over 60 years ago when Israel accidentally attacked a US ship?

      Can you name any other occasion?

    • @Freejay You mean the sustained, prolonged torpedo and air attack that killed 34 and wounded 171 Americans who were on a ship that was flying a gigantic American flag? Yeah that one.

    • @Freejay How about Operation Susannah? Jews in Egypt conspired with israeli intelligence to bomb American and British owned targets with the intent of laying blame on the Muslim brotherhood. israel was guilty and the israeli defense minister was forced to resign. Not recent enough for you? Let's just forget it then and while we're at it let's forget about jews getting snuffed in WW2, that was a long time ago.

  • What kind of garbage is this? More zionist propaganda. The fact is israel refused to sign the nuclear non proliferation treaty but Iran signed it. israel has nuclear weapons and is the most provocative terrorist country in the mid-east. Iran has never started a war while israel has attacked the US on numerous occasions trying to start a war between Egypt and the US. israel has broken more UN resolutions aimed at peace than all of the other countries in the mid east combined. NO MORE AMERIC More..

  • I wonder how many really scared Israelis are packing their bags and leaving?

    Also, warmongering usually spooks foreign investments in the country and slows it's economy right down but I think Israel would still be OK financially as long as the American taxpayer keeps the welfare cheques flowing...

      As I said here earlier - here in Israel most of the people are going on with their every day lifes, not dealing with Iran at all (it is also being mentioned in the item above).

      It is mostly the gov. and media which deals with it, not the people.

      Israel has right now allot of foregin investments and they are needed, another reason that an actual strike over Iran is not likely.

      Pulling the "American taxpayer" card is just like pulling the "Anti semite" card - More..

      I'd like to believe you but I haven't seen any significant or popular demonstrations in Israel against the war rhetoric and the fear mongering by your politicians and media.

      The war supporters win the battle here thanks to the msm.

      Perhaps someone should produce a video showing the aftermath of an Israeli strike on Iran and the blowback it would generate...

      I agree over here, but the fact you don't see popular demonstrations is exactly because what i said- the people here prefer not to deal with it and right now the most debated topic is the economy.
