Wonder may not happen, but the job needs to be done. To Moshe etc.

Reader comment on item: Israeli Jets vs. Iranian Nukes

I agree – stunning sucesses are almost impossible to repeat. However the very survival may require tough effort – regardless how expected or unexpected it may be. I think this is the case. I think Israel may have chance if its leaders remember the advice of one of their smartest thinkers – Vladimir Zhabotinsky. – "Jews, do the job that is necessary to be done. Do not worry what other people will say. They will blame you anyway. And they will not like you anyway. Simply – do necessary job". This citation may not be precise but I hope the idea is clear. Israel needs not only a surgical strike against nuclear facilities, it needs destruction of several major Iranian military, government and industrial facilities. Let them be busy digging out. The more they will be busy with that – the less they will spread terror all over the world.

No doubt there will be attempts to retaliate. But the more they postpone to cut this furuncle, the more blood it will cost.
