in response to reader comment: Carter & the Treaty

Mr Pipes,

is there any truth to the rumor that Israel will respond to a nuclear attack by , let's say Iran, with a massive nuclear response against all of its Arab enemies. Maybe this is just another urban myth, but surely the thought of Mecca and Medina becoming uninhabital for thousands of years has got to scare the crap out of every "holy warrior". Israel is running out of options.I fear something real bad is going to happen.

Daniel Pipes replies:

That makes more sense as a rumor than as a plan.
