Is the Iraqi War distracting the world from the REAL threat to global stabilization?? What would be the immediate reaction if a missle or stealth nuke should go off in Tel Aviv courtesy of the Islamic Republic of Iran? Comment on this Washington Post article as to why the world should be FAR MORE CONCERNED about Iran than the current Bush doctrine of Democratization of the Middle East. For some insight into the beliefs that motivate madmen and religious fanatics to desire WMD, reflect on this article from Charles Krausthammer… it is well written and to the point uncovering insights into the concept of the 12th Imam.

Arming for Armageddon: “Lest you get carried away with today’s good news from Iraq, consider what’s happening next door in Iran. The wild pronouncements of the new Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, have gotten sporadic press ever since he called for Israel to be wiped off the map. He subsequently amended himself to say that Israel should simply be extirpated from the Middle East map and moved to some German or Austrian province. Perhaps near the site of an old extermination camp?

Except that there were no such camps, indeed no Holocaust at all, says Ahmadinejad. Nothing but ‘myth,’ a ‘legend’ that was ‘fabricated . . . under the name ‘Massacre of the Jews.’ ‘ This brought the usual reaction from European and American officials, who, with Churchillian rage and power, called these statements unacceptable. That something serious might accrue to Iran for this — say, expulsion from the United Nations for violating its most basic principle by advocating the outright eradication of a member state — is, of course, out of the question.” – Charles Krasthammer / Washington Post Read The Rest of This !!!

    Iran and much of the Middle East have spoken of Israel this way for decades, they are just getting more attention now.

    Pakistan is a far bigger threat, AND has the Bomb, yet the US fails to levy any controls over them, despite their being in bed with both the Taliban and members of the IIF

    Since the US is seriously tied up and Iran is winning on all fronts, they’re just having a bit of fun, pandering to the hardcore followers.

    I generally find it hard to get worked up over what Charles Krauthammer writes. But the Iranian president does keep making these nasty remarks about getting rid of Israel, and other things as well.

    Given that he is a not too distant “neighbor,” I do pay attention. There may be more to this than what is obvious upon first blush.

    One posibility is that the Iranian government is experiencing internal difficulties of the kind that generally don’t get into the mainstream press, simply because the reporters have no clue as to the people living in Iran, or if they do, are afraid to report on them, only to then get expelled – or worse.

    An Israeli immigrant from Iran, a convert from Shia Islam, covers events in his native land. I’m on his e-mail list and get at least two e-mails weekly about clashes between university students and government forces of various types.

    There seem to be problems within the ideological police, there seem to be problems trying to control the secular impulses of students in Iran, there seem to be problems stamping out the ancient religion of the country, Zoroastrianism.

    The steady stream of hostile statements from the Iranian leader may be an attempt to focus attention on the “war against the Zionists,” a favorite whipping boy in Moslem culture – parrticularly when the regime is in trouble.

    There is no doubt that the Iranian nuclear program is a threat to Israel and eventually to Europe as well. But the short range threat to Tel Aviv is likely to come from a “dirty missile” rather than a nuke.

  • Ruvy in Jerusalem

    It should be borne in mind that we do have about 200 – 300 nukes that we could use. More than one well placed individual has advocated a first strike strategy on our part, simply because we do not have the territorial depth of France or the United States.

    In spite of this, Israel’s present strategy is not to strike first with the missiles it denies it has.

    A strike on Tel Aviv would not cripple Israel’s ability to respond. The Persian president can dribble at the mouth all he wants but I think his generals will not allow him to commit suicide.
