Report: 3 Gulf states agree to IAF overflights en route to Iran

Three Arab states in the Persian Gulf would be willing to allow the Israel Air force to enter their airspace in order to reach Iran in case of an attack on its nuclear facilities, the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Siyasa reported on Sunday.

According to the report, a diplomat from one of the gulf states visiting Washington on Saturday said the three states, Qatar, Oman and the United Arab Emirates, have told the United States that they would not object to Israel using their airspace, despite their fear of an Iranian response. Al-Siyasa further reported that NATO leaders are urging Turkey to open its airspace for an Attack on Iran as well and to also open its airports and borders in case of a ground attack.

According to a British diplomat who spoke to an Al-Siyasa correspondent, Turkey will not repeat the mistake it made in 2003, when it refused to open its airspace to U.S. Air Force overflights en route to attacking Iraq.
British newspaper The Daily Telegraph reported Saturday that Israel is negotiating with the U.S. over permission for an "
air corridor" over Iraq, should an attack on Iran's nuclear facilities become necessary.

Deputy Defense Minister Ephraim Sneh on Saturday denied the reports and said Israel has no such plans.

With the strike against Iranian nuclear facilities near, I want my readers to know that I will be providing unique, uncensored, real-time coverage of the conflict. I will be talking to the beseiged people of Israel and providing video links to and from Israel with commentary by real counter terrorism experts in the Jewish State. My reportage and that of MNM will be free from jihad loving or left leaning western editorial slants. The real story......only I will leave the comments of thumbsucking "analysts," fat draft-dodgers, agenda driven pundits, and feckless politicians to CNN and FOX-News.

PLEASE prayers for our brave Israeli brothers and sisters who have stood alone against the scourge of Islamic terrorism for 58 years. Long live the People of Israel. (Inspired by Michael)

Evidently Pamela has a lesser opinion of FOX News. I still like them.

Anyway, whether the Jewish news of Haaretz is true or false and the blogosphere is true or false; the mere talk of such an event should the Western World glued to some source of information. If Iran is attacked and Iran actually retaliates, it could be the beginning of the biggest global war since WWII. There are a lot of variables, let us see how they play out.
