We should nuke Israel

TORONTO SUN - MICHAEL COREN - It is surely obvious now to anybody with even a basic understanding of history, politics and the nature of fascism that something revolutionary has to be done within months -- if not weeks -- if we are to preserve world peace. Put boldly and simply, we have to drop a nuclear bomb on Israel.


We should nuke Israel


[Republished at PEJ News without permission of the Toronto Sun]


Not, of course, the unleashing of full-scale thermo-nuclear war on the Jewish people, but a limited and tactical use of nuclear weapons to destroy Israel's military facilities and its potential nuclear arsenal. It is, sadly, the only response that this repugnant and acutely dangerous political entity will understand. 

The tragedy is that innocent people will die. But not many. Israel's missiles and rockets of mass destruction are guarded and maintained by men with the highest of security clearance and thus supportive of the Israeli regime. They are dedicated to war and, thus, will die in war. 

Frankly, it would be churlish of the civilized world to deny martyrdom to those who seem so intent on its pursuance. Most important, a limited nuclear attack on Israel will save thousands if not millions of lives. 

The spasm of reaction from many will be that this is barbaric and unacceptable. Yet a better response would be to ask if there is any sensible alternative. Diplomacy, kindness and compromise have failed and the Israeli leadership is still obsessed with all-out war against anybody it considers an enemy. 

Its motives are beyond question, its capability equally so. It is spending billions of dollars on a whole range of anti-ship, anti-aircraft and anti-personnel missiles, rockets and ballistic weapons: 

Its missiles, with a range of more than 2,000 km, and the accompanying launchers, which are so powerful that they can hit targets in Europe. Missiles with a range of 350km, their anti-aircraft missiles, which can be fired from the shoulder. Their radar-evading missile and underwater missiles, which travel at an extraordinarily high speed and is almost impossible to intercept. 

Israel is also developing enormous propellant ballistic missiles and began a space program almost a decade ago that will enable it to bomb the United States. It is also assumed in intelligence circles that Israel has American made cruise missiles which are now being copied in large numbers by Israeli scientists. 

Comparisons to the Nazis in the 1930s are unfair -- to the Nazis. Hitler had the French army, the largest in Europe, on his border and millions of Soviet infantry just a few hours march away. Israel has no aggressive enemies in the region. 

Its fanatical leader, Ohmert, controls a brutal police state, finances international terror and provokes bloody wars in foreign countries. It is unimaginably wealthy because of U.S. aid and is committed, in its leader's words, to "rolling back 300 years of Arab ascendancy" and wiping another nation, Iran, from the face of the earth. 

A conventional attack would be insufficient because Israel and its allies seem only to listen to power and threat. Better limited pain now than universal suffering in five years. 

The usual suspects will complain. The post-Christian churches, the Marxists, the fellow travelers and fifth columnists. But then, the same sort of people moaned and condemned in 1938. They were clearly wrong then. They would be just as wrong now. 

[This amazingly ignorant, hateful, and frankly criminal article has been redacted. "Israel" appears where the murderous and racist author, Michael Coren originally wrote "Iran." Likewise other slight alterations have been performed. There is, in what remains of this country Canada, hate crime legislation. Unlike Mr. Coren's, and his Toronto Sun publisher's heroes in the United States, Canadian media is expected to live up to certain standards. Promoting hatred and proposing the destruction of human life fail miserably to live up to the expected, and legislated, mandates for publishers. I recommend those offended by Mr. Coren's modest proposal write the Sun, Coren, and the CRTC. Mr. Coren can be reached here: mcoren@sympatico.ca - lex]

Michael Coran, you're terrorist rhetoric is disgusting. You remind me of a smelly, harry Arab Hizbollah terrorist. You deserve to be sent to an Al-Qada training camp where you can be treated like an animal, like all of them. Don't express your opinions on the internet because they are both ridiculous, irrational, and straight-out ugly, like you probably are.
Peace in the Middle East,
D.C. Goldstein

You are clearly a total idiot:
-First of all, you have no knowledge whatsoever about nuclear weapons or warfare (all bombs are "full-scale thermo-nuclear" and will affect more than just what is hit, remember Tchernobyl? And that was not even an attack.)
-Secondly, your are not necessarily racist, but purely ignorant about anything that goes on in the Middle East. Iran is getting nuclear power all while its president is declaring that "Israel should be wiped off the map." Not only this but look through history, if Israel has won every war (that were all declared against them in the hope of destroying the small country) is thanks to excellent military tactic. The arab countries have always had bigger armies and a strong will to eradicate Israel. I could go on, but I do not feel like teaching you a lesson, for you are simply an idiot.
Basically your non sensical suggestion will accomplish the act. Even if you 'just destroyed the Israeli army, all the arab countries would jump to the chance of destroying Israel. Yet that's not what you wanted (oops).

All I must say now is that you are VERY lucky to have a job as a journalist, because you would be very sucessful in Syria.
