« D is for... Derelict? | Main | With Obama's 'Magic' Dead, What of Iran? »

A successful Israeli strike against Iran -- without American participation -- could well be one of the best things that ever happened to Israel. Let's face it: the world at large -- the world whose hatred of Jews becomes louder and shriller by the day -- won't give Israel an iota of respect or admiration because a Philippine baby was born in an Israeli field hospital. Decency and mercy are not qualities the world-at-large respects or admires. But power -- raw, brute power -- is another matter. The world-at-large may detest Jews and Israel, but it respects naked power -- the more destructive the better. An Israeli strike against Iran that puts the Iranian nuke project out of commission for even a few years would do more to strengthen Israel's place in the world than all the acts of rachmones combined. Cynical? No. Simply one of the fundamental lessons of world history.
