From Victor Davis Hanson, a look at Israel's reality in the wake of the Obama capitulation on Iran:
"Obama and his negotiators seem surprised that Israelis take quite
seriously Iranian leaders’ taunts over the past 35 years that they would
like to liquidate the Jewish state and everyone in it."
for some reason, remember that well before Hitler came to power, he had
bragged about the idea of killing Jews en masse in his sloppily composed
autobiographical Mein Kampf.
" Few in Germany or abroad had taken the raving young Hitler too
seriously. Even in the late 1930s, when German Jews were being rounded
up and haphazardly killed on German streets by state-sanctioned thugs,
most observers considered such activities merely periodic excesses or
outbursts from non-governmental Black- and Brownshirts."
"The Israelis have taken to heart lots of lessons over the last 70
years. They have concluded that often the world quietly wants Israel to
deal with existential threats emanating from the Middle East while
loudly damning it when it does. They have learned from the experience of
the Holocaust that, for good or evil, Jews are on their own and can
never again trust in the world’s professed humanity to prevent another
Holocaust. And they are convinced that they can also never again err on
the side of the probability that national leaders, with deadly weapons
in their grasp, do not really mean all the unhinged things they shout
and scream about killing Jews."
"Given all that, we should conclude that any deal that leads, now or
in the near future, to an Iranian bomb is unacceptable to Israel — a
nation that will likely soon have no choice but to consider the
unthinkable in order to prevent the unimaginable."
