Blindsided: Peace for Israel?

This is a classic Christian dodge. Those Christians were being the best Christians they knew how to be. As a Jew I am not in charge of choosing who is a Jew or not. Christians however seem to be able to deny other Christian's Christianity. Perhaps you and all of the Christian sects could get together and decide on a single ideology. I just want to clarify all of my statements. I have no problem with your faith. I'm just tired of seeing these "Jews need Jesus" and similar posts on every op-ed about Israel. We've got an old and deep tradition and faith. All I'm asking of Christians is to respect it.

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...
