“The sky was all purple
There were people runnin’ everywhere

Tryin’ to run from the destruction
You know I didn’t even care…

Oops out of time,
So tonight I’m gonna party like it’s 19[3]9.”

–Prince, “1999”

I have been working hard to explain to people that Iran’s nuclear weapons are not the major threat to Israel. It is obvious.

The problem is that after almost a century, Israel is not just the object of genocide by the Arabs but by many Iranian, Turkish, and newly European and North American Muslims. It is truly awesome how few politically active would-be peacemakers among Arabs and Middle Eastern Muslims there are.

Given Secretary of State Haman the Agagite, it is unfortunate that there is no King Ahasuerus.

Of course some of this, especially in the West, is due to the phony two-state or at least two-stage-to-extinction solution.

I should mention this was not just a knee-jerk conclusion on my part but one reached over the course of 45 years.

Of course, we can always hope for a Queen Esther who, in answer to the king’s “where is the man who has dared to do such a thing?” could reply, “The adversary and enemy is this vile Haman.”

Somehow, I don’t think Michelle would play such a role.

Note two ignored points on Iranian nuclear weapons, which show the focus is ridiculous:

  1. Why use nuclear weapons when you believe you will win by conventional means and while you make billions to shore up the Tehran regime so effectively in the short-run?
  2. Iran’s nuclear effort is ironically a defensive strategy to neutralize any possible Israeli nuclear option or an Israeli attack on Iran.

This is a massive misdirection — get it?

Dr Rubin, can you please explain why Iran " can win " with conventionnal weapons ? hezbollah is no match for a full-scale confrontation with IDF.
And I do not see the current israeli govt.weak or stupid enough to evacuate areas B+C in Judea-Samaria and give them to hamas.
Which brings to my 2nd demand : Why do you see Iran nuclear arsenal as purely defensive ?
On the israeli perspective There is a linkage, a rational escalation, between a tactical defeat of hezbollah at the hand of IDF - followed - by a nuclear attack from Iran on Israel .If hezbollah is crushed by IDF then Iran can send dozens of missiles including many dummies to wear out the israeli anti-missile defense, then one iranian nuke can go through.
On the saudi arabia perspective , there are no questions about the OFFENSIVE nature of Iran nuclear weapon.That is the logic behind the saudi position; As soon as Iran reaches a nuke Saudi will get one .
Saudi arabia nor Egypt never looked for nukes despite 4 wars against a nuclear-able Israel.Because they clearly perceived the israeli nukes are purely defensive.Right now Saudi arabia perceives the iranian nukes as offensive weapons. I think it is exactly the same OFFENSIVE threat wich is pointed at Israel.

I've read articles which suggest America is withdrawing from the Middle East -- abandoning the region. But is this the case? Others say that Obama, far from withdrawing from the area, is actually re-aligning existing powers. Thus he is promoting the rise of Turkey, Iran, Syria, while abandoning Israel. This reminds me of a book Fareed Zacharia promoted back in 2010. It was "Reset: Iran, Turkey, and America's future" by Kinzer. Is Obama (a fan of Zacharia) doing what Kinzer advised? Dump Israel, support Iran?

International readers are not impressed with the unprofessional air Kerry wafts on the Middle/Near East - Israel issues. He treats the personalities involved on issues as school boys whom he rather hush the aggrieved to appease the bully. He is known as traitor in Vietnam, and look what he's doing now? He is elevating his traitorous endeavors. Ohhh, how sick ...
