Iran-Israeli Attacks Escalate -- So Do the Concerns of the West

A volatile Iran can no longer be ignored. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has already made negative inroads into South American with Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, followed by making connections with Communist stalwart Fidel Castro. The President of Iran has expressly invested himself in destabilizing the West and one of her main allies -- Israel.

If the Iranians want to instigate assassination attempts against Israeli dignitaries and foreign correspondents through the world, if they want to engage in sabre-rattling along the straits of Hormutz, if they want to accuse Israel of attacking their own people in order to create "false diversions" of Persian hostility, then Israel has every right to bomb Iran.

No one can credibly believe that the Persian state is investing in nuclear power solely to shore up its dwindling energy resources. The naive ostrich politics which insists on ignoring the portentous dangers will only permit one more virulent fanatic to store up power and intimidate the Middle East, a region which does not need any more instability.

No nation has the right to the threaten the existence of another. No nation can deny the Holocaust, then threaten to initiate another, all while pretending to remain a part of the community of nations.

Israel has every right to attack Iran. The Persian people do not have to labor under a heavy-handed theocracy any longer. It is insanity to assume that diplomacy or negotiations are going to turn a nation which is hell-bent on a global Islamic jihad.

Enough with the speeches. Enough with the fears of a belligerent Israel, a nation which has made every effort to effect and extend peace to surrounding countries which have no other interest than to "push the Jews into the sea".
