Nazis, Islamists, and the Making of the Modern Middle East 

Let’s see. Can you imagine this misdirected “detail”? Simply: the almost decades-old effort to destroy Israel.

1929: Hebron massacre of Jews. No Arabs massacred.

1937-1939: Arabs fight war against British mandate of Palestine including terrorist assassinations.

1939: Jordan and Egypt are inclined to prevent Israel by diplomatic means but the Palestinian Arabs, Saudi Arabia, and Iraq want violence.

1939: Saudi Arabia secretly negotiates weapons purchase for the Palestinian Arabs from Nazi Germany.

1939: Muslim Brotherhood subsidized by Nazi Germany. Seventy-five years later, the grandson of the head of the Brotherhood and the son of the Palestinian European leader were permitted by the New York Times, without contradiction, to write that the Brotherhood believed in parliamentary democracy and was pro-British during the war. Meanwhile, the Brotherhood and the Arab-Palestinian leadership from Berlin were advocating massacres of the Jews in Egypt, and the government was providing maps of British fortification to the German army.

1941: The Palestinians’ Arab leadership asks for a safe haven in Berlin. For the next four years, this leadership organizes thousands of German Nazi troops and SS imams, advises the German government, sends delegations to concentration camps with an eye on setting up death camps throughout the Middle East, etc.

1941: Massacre of Jews in Baghdad; revolt by radical Iraq’s Nazi ally put down.

1948: Refusal of UN partition giving a Palestinian Arab state.

1955: Soviet-Egyptian alliance.

1956: Suez War: Israel pressed to pull back by U.S. victory but gets nothing.

1967: Israel attains victory.

1967: 1970 War of Attrition.

1970: Arab summit–no recognition of Israel, no negotiations, no peace.

1970-1982: Decades of terrorism; the murder of any Israeli in reach; yet relatively little retaliation. And there was the assassination of almost every Arab leader willing to make peace with Israel.

1973: War.

2000: Refusal of UN partition to receive a Palestinian Arab state.

Okay, why go on?

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 ...
