Dear Friends,

Support for a military attack on Iran is, plain and simple, support for mutually assured destruction, not only for the State of Israel, but also for Israel’s Palestinian neighbors.

Any military escalation in an unstable Middle East is akin to throwing a lighted match onto a powder keg. The consequences cannot be contained by any conventional strategy, and regional diplomatic efforts will be set back decades.

This opinion is widely shared well outside peace activist circles. It has been heatedly expressed by Major General Meir Dagan, former Israeli Mossad Director (2002 – 2011) who said, “[Attacking iran] would mean regional war and in that case you would be giving Iran the best possible reason to continue the nuclear program.” He adds it’s “the stupidest thing I ever heard.”

This is a pleasant surprise; Jews who are actually objecting to wars against the people of the Middle East. The legacy of Jews in the 1950s and 1960s in the US was one of decency and humanity. They fought for the civil rights of other Americans.

The aggressive zionism that confronts the world and threatens us with world war three, is an alien and immoral attitude many Jews are against.

Those Americans who happen to be Jews that are against Israeli belligerency and a war against Iran must speak more to save world peace.
