There can be no doubt that the situation regarding Iran is becoming increasingly worrisome and complicated. As the international press has all but stated with a measure of certainty that Israel will be launching a military offensive against Iran, Pakistan has thrown another wrench in the works, threatening to attack any nation that dares launch an offensive against Iran.
According to an AP report, a senior European diplomat who held discussions with leaders of Pakistan has learned that it plans to attack any nation that launches a military operation against Iran.
The diplomat quoted Pakistani officials saying “If Iran is attacked; we have no alternative but to launch a reprisal attack”.
This latest threat adds to the many considerations that must be weighed in Yerushalayim as Iran continues forging ahead towards nuclear independence, significantly complicating the situation for decision makers in Yerushalayim.
Another European diplomat on Sunday, 12 Shevat 5772 warned that if Israel or any country attacks Iran, it may lead to regional conflict, the daily HaMevaser reports. Such a reality would worsen the global economic crisis and may possible lead to the collapse of the EU and the euro.
