A predominantly one-topic blog: how is it that the most imminent and lethal implication for humankind - the fact that the doctrine of "Mutually Assured Destruction" will not work with Iran - is not being discussed in our media? Until it is recognized that MAD is dead, the Iranian threat will be treated as a threat only to Israel and not as the global threat which it in fact is.

IRAN’S PLAN FOR THE JEWS, ANCIENT AND PRESENT
“Will you join me in
hearing the case for keeping weapons from those who preach death to Israel and
NOBEL PEACE LAUREATE
Many centuries ago a wicked man in Persia named Haman advised:
a nation scattered and dispersed among the others… It is not in our interest to
And the order went out to all the provinces, to “annihilate, murder and destroy
the Jews, young and old, children and women.”
Now Iran, modern Persia, has produced a new enemy. The Ayatollah
Khamenei has been as clear as his predecessor in declaring his goal: “the
annihilation and destruction” of Israel. He is bent on acquiring the weapons
needed to make good on the deadly promise.
The disaster of ages past was averted, but the event is
remembered in the holiday of Purim. On March 5th, Jewish children in
synagogues around the world will shout down the name of Haman when it
is pronounced in the Book of Esther. They understand a simple truth that at
times eludes world leaders: When someone in power threatens your
destruction, you must loudly condemn him.
On the day before Purim the Prime Minister of Israel will
address Congress on the catastrophic danger of a nuclear Iran. I
intend to be there. Should we not show our support for what might be the
last clear warning before a terrible deal is struck? Santayana wrote
that those who cannot remember history are condemned to repeat it. I
believe that those who deny history – specifically the Holocaust – are
determined to repeat it. President Obama, Vice President Biden,
distinguished members of Congress,
I ask you – As one who has seen the enemies of the Jewish people
make good on threats to exterminate us, how can I remain silent?
As Queen Esther said when addressing her King: “How can I behold
the destruction of my people?”
I plead with you to put aside the politics that have obscured
the critical decisions to be made. Surely it is within your power to find
a solution that will permit Israel’s Prime Minister to deliver his urgent
Will you join me in hearing the case for keeping weapons from
those who preach death to Israel and America?
In traditional Jewish families we close the Sabbath with the
lighting of the Havdalah candle and a quote from the Book of Esther
retelling how danger was replaced by light and happiness, and the blessing:
“And so may it be for us.”
This ad was organized, produced
and paid for by This World: The Values Network, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, Executive
Director. **** Amazing that while Alan Dershowitz, Dennis Ross and now Elie Wiesel, all previously staunch supporters of Obama, finally realized the disaster Obama's policies towards Iran are creating for Israel and the US, the Israeli left has learned absolutely nothing.
