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.

A conditio sine qua non to understanding the Middle East
Melanie Phillips, in “An
open letter to Jared Kushner” (As I See It, August 4), is spot on. But in
order to understand why Ms. Phillips is right, Mr. Kushner needs to read
these three books first: Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s Heretic: Why Islam Needs a
Reformation Now, Ibn Warraq’s The Islam in Islamic Terrorism: The Importance of
Beliefs, Ideas and Ideology, and Douglas Murray’s The Strange Death of Europe:
Immigration, Identity, Islam. (Murray’s book may well be the one that changes
the course of European history.) Mr. Kushner and his father-in-law, US
President Donald Trump, had better read, learn and not repeat the mistakes
Europe has made.
