Live Webcast with PM Netanyahu

 My question for PM Netanyahu:

 Dear PM Netanyahu,

In your speech to the UN General Assembly you quoted Bernard Lewis:
“There’s a great scholar of the Middle East, Prof. Bernard Lewis, who put it best. He said that for the Ayatollahs of Iran, mutually assured destruction is not a deterrent, it’s an inducement.

Recently, only Michael Oren in his LA Times Op- Ed (June 19) and Norman Podhoretz in his WSJ Op-Ed (July 29) mentioned Lewis.

Since this quote by Bernard Lewis about the death of MAD vis-à-vis Iran is so essential to the understanding of the magnitude of the Iranian nuclear threat, why is it not used more extensively to sway world public opinion?
