The primary weapon used by the Germans had been existential delegitimization. Strategically, such a delegitimation is far more dangerous than any nuclear weapon – for its practical translation is only a matter of time.
Three years have passed since the formation of the government that
defined neutralization of the Iranian nuclear menace as the first and the most
important among its challenges – and
Despite the online attacks and the computer bugs, despite the
assassinations and the odd blasts, and above all – in spite of all the
international efforts, the Iranian bomb is taking shape. From
Three years have gone by – and the military/political ability to attack the bomb has become way harder. The quantum leap, or rather, getting over the first step, took place a year and a half ago when the reactor in Bushehr was activated. That is, the Iranian reactor turned “hot” during the current government’s rule, and the outcome of its bombardment as of today would no longer be like the results of the air raid on the Iraqi or Syrian reactors. The consequences of bombing Bushehr today are similar to Chernobyl1, – namely, to casting a nuclear bomb, with all that it entails.
Overcoming the second step became apparent recently when the Wall
Street Journal published an estimate of the Pentagon experts that the
largest bunker-buster bombs at the
The Wall Street [Journal] has reported nothing much new. Already over two years ago, the Defense Minister told from the Knesset2 tribune that when the facility is completed, it would be impossible to halt its activity by means of conventional weapons. Well, – everything was known in advance, and nevertheless, the site has been finished – and indeed, it is beyond possible as of the moment to destroy it without resorting to nuclear weapons.
Does it look to anyone that Benjamin Netanyahu intends to employ
nuclear weapons in the case the world pressure on
To present the fact that the international sanctions against
It’s been a terrible
conceptual error which has led to that
It should be noted that should there be a global offensive on Iran, we’re going to absorb the missile barrage on Israel at any rate – like it was during the first Gulf War – and after it, we’re going to pay a heavy price for entrusting the American and British soldiers to safeguard our lives – just like we got Madrid and Oslo after that Gulf War…
The opponents of the assault in the cabinet should be explained
one more time that examining the issue through the keyhole of mere technical
cost-benefit [considerations], is far from providing a genuine picture of the
gruesome reality. The nuclear risk is not the greatest risk to the existence of
the State of Israel. One third of our nation had been annihilated in
From the strategic standpoint, such a delegitimation is much more perilous than any nuclear weapons – because its actual translation is only a matter of time – with or without a nuke…
They Prefer Chamberlain over Churchill
When a leader of a sovereign state announced that his intent is to
wipe the country out, the world gapped its mouth wide open in stupefaction and
looked forward to Israeli response. Since none followed, and no turning point happened
It’s worth paying attention that the rise of anti-Semitism and the question of the Jews’ right to a state – a question asked nowadays in the reputable academies of the West, and on the whole, loss of the existential legitimacy of Israel – all of these came not before the world realized that we are capable of living with the disclosed intention to destroy us.
The Iranian Amalek3 and the German Amalek acted exactly like the Biblical Amalek did. They declared on us an existential war, they were willing to pay the price and negated our legitimacy in the eyes of the nations. The Holocaust hasn’t begun with the outbreak of the big war – but rather in Hitler’s hate-filled speeches (may his name be blotted out) and propaganda a la Der Sturmer4.
What Moshe (Bogie) Ya’alon5 and
his buddies opposed to the strike do not understand, – is that
I know – our frightened citizens now prefer Chamberlain rather
than Churchill. It would do good explaining to them that a nuclear
It’ll do good to keep in mind that if only the British had Churchill when Hitler was small yet, – the lives of 74 million people would have been spared – including six million Jews.
