Top Iranian commander: Israel can’t strike us without US ‘green light’
Major General Rashid, chief of central command, says any Israeli attack will be met with a ‘crushing’ response
By TOI staff and Agencies

A senior Iranian commander said Monday that Israel does not have the ability to strike Iran’s nuclear or military bases without US approval and boasted that any Israeli aggression will be met with a powerful response that can accurately target the infrastructure used for the attack. Gholamali Rashid, chief of the Iranian armed forces central command headquarters, made the remarks as Iran began a large military exercise.

Rashid asserted that Israel is not able to follow through on any threat to Iran’s nuclear and military facilities without “the green light and support of the United States,” local media reported. He said that should any such threat by Israel be acted upon, the response would be “a crushing attack on all bases, centers, paths and space used to carry out the aggression without delay,” the semi-official Mehr news agency quoted Rashid as saying.

Israel has said it will not allow Iran to obtain nuclear weapons and that it reserves the right to act alone, without the support of other nations, against what it sees as an existential threat. Earlier this month, Defense Minister Benny Gantz said he notified US officials that he had instructed the Israel Defense Forces to prepare for a strike against Iran.

Imperfect but forgiven
The concern would be the US notifying Iran of a probable attack in progress when the evidence is seen by spy satellites and other spy assets in that region. Didn't obama threaten to shoot down Israeli aircraft headed for Iran at one point in time :(?

YES and that is the one thing Israel does need to worry about. Mind you God's got HIS ways of dealing with the enemies of Israel. I remember a certain dust storm that blew up during the Gaza conflict that protected some IDF soldiers who were otherwise going to be exposed at dawn by the light. Cue God's dust storm. And other things like that.
