I suppose good manners are a little too much to expect...
In any case, here are a few links and quotes to get you started Bruce.
The Samson Option
In the 1973 Yom Kippur War, Arab forces were overwhelming Israeli forces and Prime Minister Golda Meir authorized a nuclear alert and ordered 13
atomic bombs be readied for use by missiles and aircraft.
The Israeli Ambassador warned President Nixon of “very serious conclusions" if the United States did not airlift supplies. Nixon complied.
This is seen as the first threat of the use of the Samson Option.
So..blackmailed the USA under threat of nuclear strikes...nice..strike one.
An L.A. Times article from 2002, with the following quote by Professor David Perlmutter of Louisiana State University: (bold emphasis is mine)
"Israel has been building nuclear weapons for 30 years. The Jews understand what passive and powerless acceptance of doom has meant for them in
the past, and they have ensured against it.
Masada was not an example to follow—it hurt the Romans not a whit, but Samson in Gaza?
What would serve the Jew-hating world better in repayment for thousands of years of massacres but a Nuclear Winter. Or invite all those
tut-tutting European statesmen and peace activists to join us in the ovens? For the first time in history, a people facing extermination while the
world either cackles or looks away—unlike the Armenians, Tibetans, World War II European Jews or Rwandans—have the power to destroy the world.
The ultimate justice?"
Perl-nutter seems more like it, advocating Israel destroys the planet and relishing the prospects of a worldwide nuclear winter and thinks it would be
And he's remarkably uneducated regarding history for a professor it seems. Perhaps he was a professor of home economics or woodwork or
And from 2003, by Martin Van Creveld, quoted in the book by David Hirst, 'The Gun and the Olive Branch'.
"We possess several hundred atomic warheads and rockets and can launch them at targets in all directions, perhaps even at Rome.
Most European capitals are targets for our air force. Let me quote General Moshe Dayan: 'Israel must be like a mad dog, too dangerous to
bother.' I consider it all hopeless at this point. We shall have to try to prevent things from coming to that, if at all possible.
Our armed forces, however, are not the thirtieth strongest in the world, but rather the second or third. We have the capability to take the world
down with us. And I can assure you that that will happen before Israel goes under
Hmmm...got enough to be getting on with Bruce..or would you like more?
It's clear, in top Israelis own words, that Israel is the most dangerous, fanatical terrorist group of loonies in the world today, perhaps the most
dangerous threat to the survival of our species, not simply a religious group or other, but our entire species and this biosphere we all live upon,
the world has ever seen.
Defend them all you like mate...i don't hear Iran, Syria or indeed any other 'according to Israel' - radical nation, saying anything remotely as
insane. No other group has threatened the entire world, and targetted the countries and cities of supposed allies, financial and political supporters
alike with high yield nuclear WMD's...just Israelis...strike three.
