Iran threatens Israel
The sages of Israel say, “When someone comes to kill you, kill him first.”
Against Iran: a pre-emptive first strike
The only rational and manly response to Iran’s long-standing existential threat to Israel is for Israel to strike first and eliminate her sworn enemy. The longer Israel puts this action off the more difficult will be its accomplishment.
Of course, no rational and decent political leader in Israel savors this awesome responsibility, but it cannot be avoided without risking Israel’s own the existence, and THAT is the Paramount concern of her Prime Minister.
That Iran may have a second strike retaliatory capability does not negate an Israeli first strike. It only amplifies its necessity and disarming effectiveness, on the one hand, and indifference to public opinion, on the other.
Iran asked for it
This scenario is not the conclusion of hasty considerations. It was logically entailed several years ago when former Iranian despot Mahmoud Ahmadinejad vowed to “wipe Israel off the map.”
Those years should have been employed by Israeli Prime Ministers in making Israel immune to retaliation so far as that is possible, because Pollyana notion of pacifying Iran utterly misjudges the implacable nature of the enemy. Islam is not a compromising credo.
Since Iran’s Mullocracy has also intoned the malediction “Death to America,” the next President of the United States should regard the elimination of Iran as his first priority.
As in the case of Israel, he should not be deterred by the question of the certainty of an impending Iranian attack–not in this age of nuclear-tipped ballistic missiles.
Editor’s note: the current leaders of Iran threaten openly to wipe the United States off the map even as the leaders of the United States laughingly try to “negotiate” with them. In addition, Russia has clearly allied with Iran. Do the words of the prophet Ezekiel (specifically, chapters 38 and 39) spring to anyone’s mind?
