Rhetoric is ramping up in Israel as the elections are now only a few days away. Benjamin Netanyahu promises that a nuclear Iran will not happen on his watch. Asked if his plan included a military strike on the rogue neighbor, he said “It includes everything that is necessary to make this statement come true.
In November 2006, Netanyahu, speaking in Los Angeles drew a sobering analogy:
It’s 1938 and Iran is Germany. And Iran is racing to arm itself with atomic bombs,” Netanyahu told delegates to the annual United Jewish Communities General Assembly, repeating the line several times, like a chorus, during his address. “Believe him and stop him,” the opposition leader said of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. “This is what we must do. Everything else pales before this.
Isn’t this where much of the world stands today? It seem everything “pales” before something, but only one issue can be the most important issue for the entire world – and today, that is a nuclear Iran.
