Blindsided: Peace for Israel?

God is the source of all natural phenomena. Without diminishing either of your views, I would hope you'd understand that we (Isrealies and Christians) are philosophic brothers. For millenia, most of the world has treated Jews with great disrespect all because they blame them for the death of Christ. Is it fair to blame a whole race for the deeds of a few? That's like blaming all Americans (or Brits or French, or take your pick) for the the deeds of their few politicians. Please accept my respectful acknowledgement of both your religions - I prefer Deism. Truly hope I haven't offended either of you.

In my post, Blindsided: 9/11 Was the Rule, Not the Exception, I explained how 9/11 woke up America to the reality of Islamic fanaticism. Because of ignorance to Islam’s history and grievance culture, its violent nature blindsided us.

Today, that same naivety is playing out before a looming armed conflict between Israel and Iran. Ignorance is especially strong among the professional punditry, who aim to shape US public opinion.

Since its covert nuclear program was exposed in 2002, Iran has danced around the international community, always professing its peaceful intentions. But many observers have suspected otherwise.

Threats against Israel made...
