You can flag the article and most of this discussion as offensive. It is full of ignorance, lack of context, and hatred of the only state in the middle east that respects any civil or religious rights. Israel is our ally because we share many values and history. Iran treatens repeatedly and constantly that they will destroy our ally and then us. Look at a map and you will see that Israel cannot wait to be attacked because it would take one attack to destroy a prosperous economy built on technology that it would like to trade with but has no takers among the power hungry states around it. No, they cannot use atomic weapons because that would mean only more destruction of all they people in the area including Israelis.

Any cogent discussion would be in vain at this point. This column is now in the middle of a Nazi rally

Please explain how Iran is going to destroy Israel and then the U.S.

I could use a good laugh.

Please explain how Al Qaeda is going to destroy the U.S.

Your point assumes that avoidance of destruction is the only reason to attack, thus giving me a good laugh.

I commented only because no one here is complaining about the hatred and lack of context here.
People like this deserve to have the kind of world their hatred would lead to, but the rest of us don't.

Ellen,

If people like you have your way we will have that world. It is you people who are guilty of everything you describe above. Stop being a hypocrite and projecting on others what you are guilty of.

What is Bibi Netanyahu up to?

With all his warnings of Iran's "nuclear capability," of red lines being crossed, of "breakout," of the international community failing in its duty, of an "existential threat" to Israel, what is the prime minister's game?

The answer is apparent. Bibi wants Iran's nuclear program shut down, all enrichment ended, all enriched uranium removed and guarantees that Iran will never again start up a nuclear program.

And if Tehran refuses to surrender its right even to a peaceful nuclear program, he wants its nuclear facilities, especially the enrichment facility at Fordow, deep inside...
