A 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.

Be'er Sheva under Grad attack
By 3:30 am we already have had 4 attacks since 11 pm, I think
8 altogether, lost count, and I was getting tired to every time get up and shut the door of the
safe room when the siren goes off and reopen it after the attack. I once calculated that we would have
enough air in the safe room for about 10 hours because when the door is shut
the room is hermetically sealed, but it is uncomfortable to sleep in
a room if you know that you are using up the air slowly . Feels as if you were
in a submarine. Das Boot and The Hunt for Red October comes to mind. However, if you leave the door or the window ajar there is always the
probability, small, but not zero, that the shrapnel would ricochet into
the room . Still, I left the door
open and went back to sleep, till the next red alert. Should try and do the math
and calculate the probabilities and consequences of leaving the door open.
It was eerie to drive through almost
deserted streets of Be'er Sheva this
morning to pick up my daughter from the bus stop. A few taxis and nobody else.
At least there are no cars at intersections so you could more easily take
cover within the 60 seconds. On the way
back I asked my daughter to measure how
long it would take us from the nearest circle
till home. 54 seconds. Should not make a dash for it if caught at the circle. Too
Tried to post Article 7 of the Hamas Charter and HadithBukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number
177 from which it is taken on Sky News
. Article 7 reads " The hour of judgment shall
not come until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them, so that the Jews hide
behind trees and stones, and each tree and stone will say: 'Oh Muslim, oh
servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him,' except for the
Gharqad tree, for it is the tree of the Jews." It never appeared on the Sky News site.
Censored. Direct quotes from the Hamas Charter is just too much truth for the
Brits. Churchill must be turning in his grave. This is not Britain's finest
son's school teacher phoned to inquire about my son. He's fine my wife says. She
skips the fact that he is thanking Hamas there is no school. Homework assignment
is on the internet. In the meantime he is playing chess with himself.
is backing Israel's action. Very nice. Everyone seems to have forgotten that
only three years ago his administration transferred
$900 million to Hamas. The 69 percent of American Jews who voted for him
could not care less that the Soviet designed, Chinese manufactured Grads falling
on my head are being financed by the American taxpayer. Maybe they will more concerned with their own soap
opera scandal and interested what Petraeus will say in his testimony to the
congressional intelligence panels.
the Mahdi, the 12th Imam, is still in occultation but the centrifuges are spinning... Iron Dome intercepts Grads over Be'er Sheva
Update, Dec 2: The
other day while driving in Be'er Sheva I
realized I had found the music I should listen to during Grad attacks. Shostakovich's "Leningrad" Symphony.
The wailing of the sirens goes well together with the main repetitive theme
of the approaching German armies... Shostakovich Symphony No. 7 "Leningrad" 1st Movement part 2
