Reader comment on item: How Israel Can Win
in response to reader comment: the meaning of deterrence

Submitted by true believer (India), Apr 18, 2006 at 04:59

Byran,

How will the moslems worldwide react if Iran develops nuclear weapons and nukes Israel ? Their ayatollas are crazy enough to attempt this. I will tell you how. The moslems worldwide will rejoice at the suffering of Israel though a few muslims in US and Europe will shed crocodile tears as a token gesture to the western media. The west will simply wring its hands and express its shock and inability to do anything much.The rest of the wordm mighn not even bother.

While I don't advocate Israel nuking all the arab countries simply because it is not a practical solution and arabs are also human beings, it should develop a credible nuclear deterence and defence capability and should not hesitate to use the nuclear option against Iran first if the need arises. Terrorists are terrorists even if they get elected and form governments. Only now they will have more power to terrorise Israel. Instead of negotiating with terrorists Israel should do what it had done before.

Be on the offensive and not give an inch of land to the Palestinians. An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. Israel always been victorious when they were on the offensive. And why is this so ? Islamic hardliners always speak the language of violence and this is the only language that the terrorists will understand and respect. For the rest, well Israel is the Good Lord's beloved. He will surely remember his covenant with Yacob protect it against all odds :)
