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.

assertion by MK Ofer Shelah (Yesh Atid-Telem) that “government action had
nothing to do with the country’s success in the battle against the novel
coronavirus” is sheer nonsense.
has 16,314 cases and 238 deaths with the population of 9.2 million, so it has
27 deaths per million population which is ten times less than Sweden has per million.
just cannot imagine that Israel could tolerate 2,380 deaths, which would
approach the number of deaths in the Yom Kippur war.
to explain such numbers? Israel imposed strict restrictions early on and a
lockdown at the very beginning of the exponential curve. I believe that it
helped that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has Master of Science degree from
MIT, whereas Boris Johnson studied humanities at Oxford and Trump has a
bachelor’s degree in economics from the Wharton school – so Netanyahu was much
more receptive to the scientists’ advice.
addition, the health care providers (Maccabi for instance) monitors remotely
every mildly infected person three times a day.
