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.

Imagine that Brighton were Gaza
The jihadist mindset is
really puzzling to me. Is it possible that they do not realize that Israel has
the means to kill not 7 terrorists but 70 or 700? How does their mind work?
They attack Israeli population centers and then expect Israel to do what? Have
they any notion of history and how other countries reacted when their citizens
were under fire, the Brits during the Blitz and later under V1 and V2 attacks?
The situation is in fact
so absurd that you have to think hard to come with an analogy, and you cannot
because there is none. The nearest I could think of is that you have an enclave
of Germans in Brighton with the SS launching rockets at London from Brighton.
What would Churchill in his War Rooms at King Charles Street have done?
Well, I came out of the
mamad (safe room) a few hours ago where all the staff of our hi-tech company
went into after the sirens went off and was thinking: This is too absurd to
describe. What other country in the world would tolerate this crap?
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 postArticle 7 of
the Hamas Charter andHadithBukhari Volume
4, Book 52,Number
177 from which it is
takenon 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 hour.
My 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.
Obama is backing Israel's
action. Very nice. Everyone seems to have forgotten that only three years ago
$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.
Meanwhile 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
