NEW YORK – During a panel at Yeshiva University on Tuesday evening, Sheldon Adelson, noted businessman and owner of the newspaper Israel Hayom, suggested that the US should use nuclear weapons on Iran to impose its demands from a position of strength.
Asked by moderator Rabbi Shmuley Boteach whether the US should negotiate with Iran if it were to cease its uranium enrichment program, Adelson retorted, “What are we going to negotiate about?”
“So a tremendous demonstration of American strength?” Boteach clarified. “So that they would get the message?”
“It’s the only thing they understand,” Adelson said.
Anyone else for a big, loud and clear NO to this insane idea? It's just unbelievable, how far the rhetoric has gone. I mean, first strike use of nuclear weapons, especially on a nation with no earthly hope or WAY to defend???
The real enemy of the jewish people is the same enemy that the US and the UK face and German faced in the 30s and 40s. The real enemy is willful ignorance of reality by the vast majority of spineless, easily led fools that make up the majority of any country that would happily believe black is white and up is down as long as they get their bread and circuses and who will put up with virually and insult, indignity or humiliation as long as they are told that it will save them from the imaginary wolf at the door.
Israel has nukes correct? why doesn't he suggest they use them? and why does the USA have to do it?
Bloody moron that fella is, you would think that Israel after everything that has happened to the jewish people would have learn't something...but they sure have not.
And people wonder why Israel is looked upon by many as the bad guys.
The rest of the ME has a hate-on for Israel and I don't think that's warranted. Best thing the Muslims could do is simply turn their backs to 'em. The whole problem would end itself in a couple of generations.
Israel is a terrible ally, what have they done for anyone but themselves?
