On Sunday, Israeli fighters struck a pro-Assad military base used by Iran in Syria, destroying anti-aircraft missiles. Of the 16 dead 11 were reported to be Iranians. U.S. officials told NBC News that Israel seemed to be preparing for open warfare with Iran and is seeking U.S. support. Then with much bravado and chutzpah Benjamin Netanyahu strode onto the global stage to announce that Iran were liars and had been breaking the Obama nuclear deal. This on the basis of a treasure trove of secret documents that Mossad had captured. Except there appears, amongst the half tonne of papers stolen in one night if he is to be believed, to be no smoking gun. Haaretz, the Israeli liberal paper described it as ‘much ado about nothing.’ But it was clearly designed to elbow Trump into killing the deal in the face of opposition from Paris, Berlin and London.
Trump may hate all things Obama but his campaign promises were all about avoiding getting dragged into foreign conflicts. James Mattis would certainly advise against it but he doesn’t seem to be winning much at the moment looking decidedly undermined with tr Neptune opposing his Sun; as well as aggravated by both Trump and Netanyahu from late May, through June and again in the autumn.
Netanyahu’s Government chart, 14 May 2015 11.05 pm looks precarious over coming months, with a real chance of collapse before the end of the summer; with disappointments galore in May and June.
His personal chart, 21 October 1949 9.30am Tel Aviv, is in a waning phase with tr Saturn now entering the nadir of his first quadrant, facing corruption charges domestically and clearly keen to create diversions. This phase is likely to throw up misjudgments, banana skins galore and failed plans. Plus he has the blocked Solar Arc Pluto conjunct his Sun, exact in 4 months time.
Playing with fire.
