A report says that Britain and Israel are in cahoots with each other against Iran and have held secret meetings to draw plans for a military strike on Iran.

According to an article by Jonathan Cook publish on Global Research website, former British defense secretary Liam Fox and  Adam Werritty attended a dinner banquet with a group described as senior Israeli officials in Tel Aviv last February.

Fox and Werritty were accompanied by Britain’s ambassador to Israel (Matthew Gould) and the Israeli figures attending  were representatives of Israel’s secret service, the Mossad.

Craig Murray, Britain’s ambassador to Uzbekistan until 2004, has claimed that the topic of discussion that evening was a secret plot to launch a military strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities.

The former British diplomat said the Tel Aviv dinner was especially significant as the discussion that night focused on ways to ensure Britain assisted in creating favorable diplomatic conditions for an attack on Iran.

Murray also pointed out that the banquet in the Israeli capital city raises “vital concerns about a secret agenda for war at the core of government, comparable to [former British Prime Minister Tony] Blair’s determination to drive through a war on Iraq.”

The remarks come as The Daily Telegraph recently reported that Fox and Werritty secretly met the head of the Mossad during the Tel Aviv dinner.

The Independent also wrote in October that Werritty had close ties to Mossad as well as to “US-backed neocons” (militant pro-Israeli Jews and their supporters) that were plotting to unseat the Iranian government.

The Guardian revealed in November that British defense department under Fox had devised comprehensive plans for British assistance in the event of a US military strike on Iran. The plans included allowing the US military to use Diego Garcia – a British territory in the Indian Ocean – as a base from which to launch an attack.

The United States and Israel have repeatedly threatened Tehran with the “option” of a military strike, based on the allegation that Iran’s nuclear work supposedly has a covert military agenda.

Iran has refuted the allegations, saying that as a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the IAEA, it has the right to develop and acquire nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.  (Iran’s nuclear program was developed with the assistance of the U.S. in the 1970s.)

While Israel refuses to allow inspections of its nuclear facilities or to join the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty based on a policy it calls “nuclear ambiguity,” (though it has confirmed possession of nuclear weapons) Iran has been subjected to uneven and snap International Atomic Energy Agency inspections.

Israel recently test fired a new long-range missile capable of carrying nuclear warheads. The test was carried out at the Palmahim air base in central Israel.

This three-stage Jericho-3 missile, which is capable of delivering a 750-kilo warhead to a distance, is estimated to have a range of up to 10,000 kilometers. Paradoxically, Israel’s new nuke-capable missile, which can target many parts of the globe, is not considered a threat in the eyes of the West in light of the strong influence of the Jewish Lobby in Washington and its strong ties to U.S. media owners.

Veterans Today writes:

“The Israeli (and therefore AIPAC) agenda is to pursue an unprovoked war, either initiated by the US or as part of a US-backed Israeli sneak attack, against the sovereign Islamic Republic of Iran. Iran is targeted today because the other opponents of Israel’s colonization of Palestine have been destroyed in previous Zionist-backed US wars, namely Iraq.”  READ MORE  >>>
