Yet despite these difficulties, Israel cannot coexist with a nuclear Iran that has threatened to “wipe Israel from the map,” as Iranian president Ahmadinejad has said, or any longer bide her time hoping economic sanctions will work on religious fanatics. Israel takes seriously the post-Holocaust “never again” pledge that the rest of the world professes, but does little to enforce. No one should expect that a people who lost six million people to a lunatic ideology that had announced its intentions in advance, would make the same mistake twice. Nor should we expect a country that since its birth has been attacked three times by its more populous neighbors, and subjected to continual terrorist murder of its citizens by peoples who have made clear that Israel’s existence is a intolerable crime against their faith, to roll the dice and accept letting the world’s foremost supporter of jihadist terrorism acquire weapons of apocalyptic lethality. Yet at least publicly, there has been little appreciation of Israel’s existential predicament on the part of her presumed allies. On the contrary, for decades now Israel has been pressured to make concession after concession to enemies seeking her destruction, pilloried on the diplomatic world stage as a neo-colonialist racist oppressor, and blamed for every political and social dysfunction in the region, all at the hands of Western nations that would not tolerate living with Israel’s existential threats for five seconds.

Particularly distasteful has been the current administration’s actions. Even as he praises the “Arab Spring” and its alleged march toward liberal democracy, Obama has bullied, blamed, and put at risk the only genuine liberal democracy in the region, a beacon of freedom and respect for human rights, and a stalwart ally in the midst of Islamist hatred directed as much at America as at Israel. Rather than playing this duplicitous game of relying on Israeli military muscle to give teeth to diplomatic efforts while publicly distancing itself from an Israeli strike, the Obama administration should start planning and announcing a joint U.S.-Israeli attack on Iran of the sort that drove Saddam Hussein from Kuwait in 1990-91. The stated goal, moreover, should not be just the degradation of Iran’s nuclear facilities, but the destruction of the Republican Guards’ military assets and the material support of Iranian dissident groups in order to effect regime change.

Instead, in our relations with Israel we increasingly resemble the despicable behavior of France and England towards Czechoslovakia in 1938. As Hitler used diplomacy as cover for his aggression, France and England pressured the Czechs to make more and more suicidal concessions. Afraid to fight when it most likely would have won, the French and English abandoned Czechoslovakia and had to fight anyway a year later, when victory was in doubt and ultimately achieved mainly because of Hitler’s lunatic invasion of the Soviet Union. So too today, the equally genocidal Iranian regime can be stopped by a unified and determined Western alliance. Instead, though, Obama is leaving Israel out on a limb as he calculates the “unforeseen consequences” and seeks political advantage. He needs to start calculating the easily foreseen and much more disastrous consequences of Iran’s possession of nuclear weapons. That’s what true leaders do: recognize that the choice is seldom between the good and the bad, but rather between the bad and the worse.

    I fear Iran wants to try at being the Nazi Germany of the 21st century. If they dare to launch a serious terror attack or even a military attack on North American soil, they will have to suffer retaliation, otherwise they will be emboldened and may try more aggressive actions, maybe even an invasion should they acquire the resources to do so.

    As before, Israel will be in the same position as Britain during WWII: The last bulwark against full conquest of the Middle East by Shia-fundamentalist Iraq.

    • O'rly

      Are you high?

      • mrbean

        I guess you must have missed the Iranian public pledge to kill all the Jews and destru Israel the other day.

    • fatboy91

      fellow, so far Israel has done that, don't be absurd, the wall, the segregation, checkpoints, sound familiar? the American and western public is so misguided, I'm afraid we might just go to war for that, drag every young man into war for what, OIL and world domination. and would you recognize a state's right to exist if it had committed all those horrific crimes with Arabs in the name of terrorism. Israel is a tiny nation lets not forget that too, well equipped with us weapons, but small.

    • Cristian

      Israel should be blown off the map most of our problems come from them. They deserve it and USA shouldn't help we have helped to long and we only get crap in return. Also we don't have the money and the time to get involved in another war.

  • David M

    I as an Iranian citizen (unfortunately) I agree that Iran (although backward) is Germany 1938. Iran has become world's # 1 terrorist land and openly advocates the destruction of Israel – the only democracy in the Middle East – and killing its citizens. Iran has given Israel every right to defend itself by all means. Iran has become a case study how Islam, Nazism and Communism are the same ideology with different names. There are many Iranians who despise Islam and there are many who should be considered as the enemy of every thing that is good and human. It is like 1938 and it is time to act now.

    • aspacia

      I hope you are not currently living in Iran.

  • crackerjack

    Let's be realistic :

    Israel can drop a few random bombs and then run for the cover of the UN and the West. But takeing out Iran's nuclear industrie for good, would be a major operation for a large alliance, destruction of Iran's air capabilities, invasion of strategic regions including Hormus and occupation.

    This is just not going to happen. Certainly not on the basis of another "preemption" theory, while IAEA inspectors are still on the ground and without full support from Russia and Turkey.

    Let's face it. The Middeast had to learn to live with Israeli nukes. Israel must now learn to live with Middeast nukes.

    • davarino

      Please be realistic. Israel has not threatened to nuke anybody else in the region, Iran has. The middle east has learned to live with a nuclear israel because they dont feel threatened. Tell me how, in your deranged mind, do you expect israel to learn to live with a nuclear iran?

    • aspacia

      Israel is not a signatory of the of the Nuclear Proliferation Treaty, Iran is. Israel has not threatened to massacre Iran and all its people, Iran has.

      There is a huge difference between Iran and Israel having nukes.

    • jacob

      So in yoiur educated mind, Israel will run for cover to the UN ???
      Have you the brains to be a plain idiot or what ??
      When has Israel gotten an ounce of smpathy from the rotten United Nations ?
      When Israel retaliated against a launching site of the thousands of rockets
      fired on it since HAMAS took over GAZA, the only thing UN and the EU did was
      to condemn it for using 'DISPROPORTIONATE MEANS"….
      Imagine what would have happened if ISRAEL would have repaid in kind ! !
      But I guess Israel should have bombed long ago the hell out of IRAN's oil
      fields with "dirty bombs" so not a drop of oil could be drawn for the next 20
      years…
      That would have been the end and still can be the end of the regime JIMMY
      WHO helped establish as after all, American politicians are so smart, so
      shrewd, it is impossible to tell where the sage ends and the fool begins…

      • macdaddy

        It goes even deeper than that. Let's not forget that Israel suspended their action against Lebanon because the UN resolution committed Lebanon from re-supplying and the UN was supposed to ensure this. Well, that did not go very well. Lebanon is apparently armed to the teeth with missiles in every 10th home near their southern border. This is par for the course for the UN. Many other examples of duplicitous, immoral behavior towards Israel. But you never hear a word about these things from media other than so-called right wing outlets.

    • http://planetej.wordpress.com/ Eliahou

      crackerjack : I guess you would to tell "Israel must now learn to DIE with Middeast nukes" an not to live with them. Because Israel never threat other Middeast lands, never dreamt about and call to their destruction and genocide, but Middeast lands did so many times to Israel. So if they have nukes, they'll use them against Israel.

      So what you are saying, crackerjack, is that Israel shall die. Nothing else. You'll certainly be sad but it won't.

    • carol

      It is the arab countries that have always run for cover to the UN. Israel has always been forced to stop and negotiate once the UN sees that they are winning. Do some research and learn from history. If Israel is attacked again they should go all out and do to their attackers what the allies did to Dresden and we did to Tokyo.

  • Maher

    Arabs, especially those in the Gulf are deadly scared. Remember the Saudi king Abdullah asking the US “to cut the snake’s head”? In a recent security conference held in Bahrain they don’t even mentioned Israel http://elderofziyon.blogspot.com/2012/01/security… and the Arab diplomats are interested only in Iran (State Department source). They are just hiding behind Israel. The very day Iran announced its nuclear program, the Saudis, Egypt and Jordan stated that they need one because Israel has one. Pure hypocrisy, Israel has nukes since 1957. The Saudis asked Russia to end the nuclear cooperation with Iran and put 2O $bn on the table to buy Russian weapons. Besides, the Saudis financed and control the Pakistani bomb.
    I don’t understand all this fuss. Didn’t Ahmadinejad say that the bomb is un-islamic?

    • aspacia

      JackJob is an Apopolyptic idiot who will probably attack Israel, and I have never seen any documentation that he said the bomb is unIslamic.

  • Jihn Saunders-Smith

    Israel gets blamed for everything in the Arab/muslim world and in the West anyway so what has it got to lose?

    However, an attack on Iran will unite the Sunnis and Shiats – what we should be doing is dividing them.

    • ziontruth

      "Israel gets blamed for everything in the Arab/muslim world and in the West anyway so what has it got to lose?"

      Good stuff, I like that sort of thinking. Damned if you do, damned if you don't? That means you can do anything you want!

      "However, an attack on Iran will unite the Sunnis and Shiats…"

      They already see eye to eye on the duty of jihad against the non-Muslims. Their spat is about other things. Sunni Hamas and Shia Hezbollah are allied against the Jewish State; they are at peace with each other by lack of physical proximity (the former are in Gaza, the latter in Lebanon).

      "…what we should be doing is dividing them."

      Should be easy—just spread a few rumors, we know how ready the Muslims are to believe any wild rumor. That said, dividing them only slows them down a bit, so it's no substitute for physically relocating their troops (every Muslim living in infidels' vicinity).

  • WilliamJamesWard

    There would be no support from the UN after and Israeli attack? There is none now
    so what difference can it make. Islam understands and respects one thing, force.
    What would really lay the Mullahs to rest would be if Israel used atomic bombs on
    the Iranean nuclear facilities and bunker busters on their houses. Without ending
    the reign of the Mullah lunatics evil will continue to poor out of Iran……….William

    • MalcStPb

      William, I totally agree – the only thing that Arabs understand is overwhelming force. If you debate, discuss or negotiate they see this as pathetic weakness. Let Israel hit them hard, now! And, when they retaliate then the US and NATO should get involved and blast Iran back into the Stone Age. If Iran wants to indulge in nonsense anti-Semetic Islamic rhetoric so what, ignore them – but if they do attack Israel then it is Iran that should be bombed and devastated. A clear deterrent is needed, if they act it must be clear that Iran's existence is doomed.

    Behold the agenda of the New World Order (better defined as: the old-world satanic-agenda). And to see the paycheck-hungry puppets in government, business & news media serving these devilish elitists who fabricate all this rubbish against Iran because of their insatiable lust for power. It has nothing to do with Iran being a threat. They are as much of a threat as Iraq proved to be. Wake up, people! You’re being played the fool and led to say 'amen' to a lie. Don’t believe me?

    Haven’t you heard the fact that the reason Iraq invaded Kuwait was because American oil companies were drilling horizontally into Iraq and stealing their oil! Any oilman over there will give testimony to this! Our leaders and Israel knew this corporate rip off of a nation’s resources and did nothing to stop it.

    How many more millions have to die for these satanists? How many more American boys have to lay down their lives for these insatiably greedy CEOs' Christmas bonuses and early retirement at tax payer expense? How many presidents do we have to elect who never put their lives in harms way for anyone and yet don’t bat an eye to send our boys to an early grave? For what? Oh, American security, riiight. Well, look where we are: does America look financially stable and productive to you? Do you see our children and grand children having a ‘bright future?’

    By 2007 nearly 700,000 Iraqi civilians died according to Johns Hopkins' epidemiologists—while America gets flushed down the toilet for these murdering, lying, thieving elitists who are taking our trillions and investing in China and India (for the new slave labor and blue collar jobs). But one day, GOD'S vengeance will repay these Talmudic Jews & Apostate Christians who deceive & betray, along with all who stand with them willingly turning a blind eye to the evils of this world for a paycheck!

    • ziontruth

      "…these Talmudic Jews…"

      Here's another problem: John Hopkins "epidemiologists" have been proven to use rigged statistical model to cook its '700K' number. But Gary is the last to find out, unless he is an "epidemiologist" himself.

      • traeh

        And yet another problem: If you look at the website Iraqbodycount.com, which is a lefty site against the war in Iraq, they compiled reports on all the civilian deaths. But if you look at the find print of each incident of a civilian casualty, it turns out that literally more than 99% of the civilian deaths in Iraq were caused not by the U.S. and allies, but by jihadists blowing themselves up in crowded markets and Shia and Sunni massacring each other. Over 99%!

    Muslims have chosen the rules of the game. Jews should let them know in no uncertain terms what "Never Again" means. The Muslim jihadists are motivated by the core principles of Islam with the goal of converting, killing, or subjugating all non-Muslims. Unfortunately, too many non-Muslims have reverted to a pre-9/11 mentality and do not see the necessity of an offensive war with the Jihadists, or of a defensive war at home. All of us as non-Muslims are going to have to decide to fight for our cultures, freedoms, and values or we are going to lose them. It is our killer instincts which must be harnessed if we expect to survive in a war with the Jihadists. Our weapons are only tools. It is a hard heart that kills. If our killer instincts are not clean and strong we will hesitate at the moment of truth. We will not kill. We will become dead Americans and dead Jews. And then we all will be in a world of trouble. Why? Because there are a billion Muslims and on a few million of us who will actually fight! Do you understand?

    For the Jews, a world without Israel is no world at all. Obama couldn't care less. This attitude will cost the USA dearly and leave the USA with nuclear egg on it's face and a possible nuclear devasted Western United States and another Pearl Harbour decision on it's hands.Get rid of Obama as quickly as possible. He has already set the scene of blame for the world's problems on Israel if Israel attacks Iran unilaterally.
    A world without Iran is the world's first prize even with the projected fall-out if Israel attacks Iran. To accept Iran as a world nuclear power is suicde for the Jews and the USA.
    The right decision must be made soon before the world order is changed for the worse forever.

  • Texasron

    The Mullahs running Iran need to be eliminated. They, I'm sure, would like that since it would make them martyrs. The rest of its citizens could then live in peace.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    The notion that the West must wait until the very last minute and until all options have been exhausted first before acting is utterly insane. Indeed, thanks to that idiotic notion, Iran is far more powerful militarily than it was just a few years ago and it also leaves no room for error. It also makes us appear to be incredibly weak in the eyes of our Islamic enemies, especially since Iran has been killing Americans in Iraq and Afghanistan with impunity for years.

    Anyway, if Iran gets nukes with impunity, it will inevitably become far more belligerent and aggressive, which will cause oil prices to skyrocket permanently as a result. Also, the jointly co-owned Saudi and Pakistani massive nuclear weapons arsenal sitting in Pakistan will be proliferated virtually overnight throughout the Sunni Islamic world to counter the nuclear armed Iranians, further ratcheting up oil prices as tensions continue to climb. Hence, not only will our economy inevitably be destroyed by sky high oil prices, but the Islamic world – with its Islamic imperative to make the world supreme for Islam – will become armed to the teeth with nuclear weapons.

    Unless the world has a death wish, it better find the courage somewhere to stop Iran before it is too late!

  • mrbean

    Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said the opportunity must not be lost to remove “this corrupting material. It is a “‘jurisprudential justification” to kill all the Jews and annihilate Israel, and in that, the Islamic government of Iran must take the helm.” The article, written by Alireza Forghani, an analyst and a strategy specialist in Khamenei’s camp, now is being run on most state-owned sites, including the Revolutionary Guards’ Fars News Agency, showing that the regime endorses this doctrine. Attack Iran now! Muslims have chosen the rules of the game. Jews should let them know in no uncertain terms what "Never Again" means.

  • BUTSeriously

    The truth is this Nuke issue won't go away even if Iran & Syria are nullified. The real issue is Islamists cannot be allowed to rule people, countries or the earth's resources: 57 [all of them] states manifest this truth. The real truth is this terrible situation is caused by Europe: Britain installed these regimes; Europe fostered them. The corruption of the Balfour Mandate is the worst Post-W.W.II crime This crime was repeated with the creation of Pakistan to please the Arab regimes. The scene in Palestine and India are eerily similar.

    The best thing for Muslims is to not have the Islamic countries ruled by Islamists.

  • BUTSeriously

    Let's help Muslims. Remove Islamic dictators from ruling peoples, lands and earthly resources. We see what resulted when Britain allocated the Middle-East to 22 Islamic rulers from one family, illegally and in secret – for 30 barrels of oil. There is no alternative to the removal of Islamict combinations of religion and state, except more of the same.

    I wish you were right, but I don't think you are. The situation is not static. Things are not what they were thirty years ago. And as time goes by, accelerating technological progress means scientists ever more quickly dream up ever more varieties of ever more powerful, ever more deadly, ever cheaper, ever more accessible WMD. We are perhaps not far from a time when not just puny rogue nations, like North Korea, have WMD. But small groups with limited technical and financial resources may be able to get or make WMD of one sort or another. I'm not talking necessarily about atomic weapons.

    That doesn't mean we shouldn't strike Iran, however. But it does complicate the calculus by which we decide the pros and cons. And it presents a much huger question. How are we going to manage the WMD proliferation that seems to be coming in the near future, due to technological advances?
