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.

Whom do you trust more to handle Iran – Netanyahu or Lapid?
Is this for real? A possibility that Yair
Lapid will be in charge of the country facing the undeterred nuclear armed
Twelvers looking to bring the Mahdi out of “occultation”? Perhaps people who
voted on “other issues”, including my wife and daughter, assuming that
Netanyahu would take care of security, should wake
up and realize Iran is our priority #1?
Let’s face it. Most Israelis would pick Netanyahu over Lapid
to handle Iran. This is not to say that Yair Lapid is an airhead, as many think.
Yair Lapid wrote a book titled Memories
After My Deathwritten as if he were
his father. Although the excerpt below may have been his father's opinion
alone, on page 353, he wrote:
Political correctness prevents us from discussing that our biggest
problem is Islam. Were we simply talking about the national aspirations of the
Palestinian people we would have long ago reached a peace accord. God and Allah
know that we offered the more than they once even dared to dream
could be theirs. But for every secular Palestinian interested in finding a
solution, two zealots who want us dead are born. Radical Islam has waged a war
of destruction against everything that the Western word represents:
freedom, democracy , equality, science, technology, feminism, progress.
Of the fifty-seven Islamic nations in the world today, not one is
a democracy. They are all mired in dictatorships - some more enlightened, some
less - rife with corruption and poverty and hatred, and, primarily envy. Twice
before, Islam has tried to conquer Europe, once when it conquered Spain and
once when it reached the gates of Vienna, and each time it failed.
excerpt above shows that Yair Lapid understands what is happening in the world.
But when it comes to Iran Netanyahu is the man. He has been briefed
by Bernard Lewis , he quoted Bernard Lewis in his
speech to the UN General Assembly and he can stand up to Obama.
Does Yair Lapid take seriously Bernard
Lewis's warning that "for
people with this mindset, M.A.D. is not a constraint; it is an inducement..." ?
wake up and get your priorities straight!
Update, March 3.
It seems Netanyahu got the message:
