Why, for the sake of
argument, can’t Israel live with a nuclear Iran? What’s wrong with
Mutually Assured Destruction?
It’s not an issue of MAD.
it is very much an issue of MAD, or more precisely, its ineffectiveness when it
comes to Iran. If leading scholars of Islam like Bernard Lewis and Raphael Israeli, former CIA director James Woolsey , former CIA spy who spent 10 years among the
Revolutionary Guards, Reza Kahlili and
German scholar Matthias Kuntzel all believe that
Iran cannot be deterred and that MAD does not work with Iran, why is everyone else
ducking the issue? Until one recognizes that MAD is dead the Iranian threat will
primarily be treated as a threat to Israel
and not a global threat which it is.
