Speaking today at his annual news conference, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov cautioned the United States and Israel against attacking Iran, calling it a “very, very dangerous idea.”
Such comments are not new, but the timing of the latest warning likely is the result of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s “victory speech” yesterday, in which he insisted the government would focus on moving against Iran with the election out of the way.
Netanyahu has been faulted by rivals in Israel for his eagerness to start a war with Iran, with former security officials terming it a messianic obsession. He has repeatedly cited this spring as the latest in his “red lines” for attacking Iran, but several past lines have passed without a war.
Lavrov finished the speech by urging Iran to hurry up with its negotiations with the IAEA, saying they could get deals on site access done “a little bit faster.” Iranian officials have suggested in the past they’d be more eager to open up non-nuclear military sites if they weren’t constantly being threatened with invasion, particularly since IAEA inspectors’ visits somehow seem to include passing supposedly confidential information to the international community.

If Israel (The Jews) war with Iran (Islam) is a messianic obsession, then probably Israel will be the looser.
There is a prophecy from Prophet Muhammad PBUH that Muslim will fight the Jews and kill them all even if they hide behind a stone.
Some of the Prophechies have come true. The Roman Empire and the Persian Empire have fallen to the hand of Islam. The Constantinople (now Istanbul) and Baghdad are in the hand of Islam now.
Yes the Jerusalem (Darusalam / The Land of Islam) has fallen to Israel. But it will comeback to the hand of Islam soon.
The US people now are aware that the Israel has used US money and people's lives to fight the wars for the Israelis….
In their own little oblique and humble way, the American people are also warning Washington about attacking Iran. It is just too expensive, fellows.
How can anyone disagree WITH THE ABOVE?
Russia has just warned Israel: We now have nuclear weapons
aimed at every major city in Israel, all loaded and ready to fire,
the moment you so much as provoke Iran into a military
Russia has just advised Iran that it should stop agreeing to do
more then the IAEA regulations require, as the West views this
as a sign of weakness and use it to generate more adverse
This US/Israel fiasco demonstrates once again that we (US) have become what we profess to loathe…an aggressive, militarized state bent on conquest.
We are fed up with Russian cheap talk. Russia has violated the agreement selling S-300 to Iran, then comes and give cheap slogan to increase its barganing power using IRAN CARD. Shut up
Sergey Lavrov and fuck off. You and China sold Libya and we will see that you are waiting for a GOOD PRICE to sell Syria. sHUT UP. You have always worked with the west against Muslims.
Iranian are not that ignorant to forget how Russia has treated Iran for the past 2 centuries. You idiot voted for illegal sanction along with US/Israel 4 times. No Iranian and Muslims trust YOU, the United states, especially the first BLACK peresident, and China. Fuck off.
The urge to wage war is like an itch that never goes away in the reptilian mind set.
