Israel Is Over Reacting Click [2]

We understand, respect and empathize with the historical fact that Jews suffered horrendous persecution and suffering.

But Israeli prime minister Netanyahu’s “red line” graphic [3] presented to the United Nations today is over-the-top.

Says who?

Top American and Israeli military and intelligence officials say:

  • Despite its heated rhetoric – Iran is a “rational actor” [6]. For example, in 2011, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper testified before Congress that “we continue to judge Iran’s nuclear decision-making is guided by a cost-benefit approach.” In February 2012, General Ron Burgess, director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, told Congress that “the agency assesses Iran is unlikely to initiate or provoke a conflict.” Also in February, General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said: “We are of the opinion that Iran is a rational actor”

In addition:

  • While Iran’s president Ahmadinejad is certainly a loud-mouthed, trash-talking loose cannon, Iran’s Jews are actually treated quite well [13].
