War like skirmishes to continue between Iran and Israel , predicts Ganesha.

Introduction

Tension between disagreeing nations Israel and Iran has been simmering beneath the surface for decades now. Israel perceives a tangible threat from Iran's blatant pursuit of nuclear technology, and the oil-rich Iran refuses to recognise the existence of Israel as legitimate. And hence, there seems to be no particular way of confluence between the two.

This tension and conflict rose sharply due to two recent events so much so that it took the centre-stage of world politics for a few days. Iran's president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's open claim last week that his country had succeeded in loading its first indigenous fuel rod into a nuclear reactor was interpreted as further evidence that Iran remains defiantly committed to its nuclear programme. And, immediately in its wake, bombers struck at Israeli embassy officials in the capitals of India and Georgia. Israel accused the Tehran government of complicity in the attacks. Iran blatantly denied its involvement.

Israel, on its part, with its geographical proximity to Iran and the fact that it is at odds with the entire Muslim world, has reacted by threatening to strike Iran's nuclear facilities if Iran did not halt its alleged nuclear weapons programme. For the moment, though, the US and the world community have persuaded Israel to hold back from any retaliatory action by promising to impose more severe economic sanctions on Iran. However, the fact remains that relations between the two countries, both known for their belligerence, have dipped to such a dangerous level, that it could easily escalate into a war. A war that may go on to embroil the whole world!

With relations between the two enemy countries, Iran and Israel, on tenterhooks, Ganesha, with the help of Vedic astrology, looks at the respective natal charts of the two countries to see if there is a possibility of a war between them. Read on to find out.

Predictions

Iran will face widespread economic and security implications due to sanctions. Still, Iran will continue with its nuclear program. That might create factions within the country, and it shall also affect Iran's relationship with Israel.


Israel's relations with its neighbouring countries and particularly with Iran may deteriorate further. Israel will face serious threat from terrorist organisations like Hezbollah and Hamas. The period till mid-June 2012 looks extremely sensitive, as its hostile neighbouring countries including Iran may increase anti-Israel propaganda. Israel looks set to react aggressively against Iran and adopt a


policy of 'Hot Pursuit'. It may result in yet another conflict between Israel, Iran and the Arab world. However, chances of a full-fledged war are very feeble, but tensions between Iran and Israel may escalate to the extent of war-like situations.
