Born in Blood, Founded by Terrorists, Israel Confronts Iran on Morality

Beres Louis Rene Beres is, in my opinion, a wild-eyed and war-mongering Jew, who shoots off his mouth incessantly on behalf of his unyielding opinion that Iran is about to erase Israel from the face of the earth. He bases that (apparently) solely on the statements of Iran’s current president, a wing-nut by the name of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Ahmadinejadmahmoud Wing-nut presidents are not the exclusive province of Iranians. We happen to have one ourselves, who has single-handedly frightened and estranged a larger portion of the world than Iran by at least a power of ten. Home to one of the world's oldest continuous major civilizations, with historical and urban settlements dating back to 4000 BC (Wikipedia), what Iran has not done is attack, preemptively or otherwise, another nation. Would that Israel could say the same.

Jewish Press, The True Human Meanings Of
A Nuclear Iran
, Louis Rene Beres, 8-13-08)

many years, any talk of preemption against a nuclearizing Iran was certain to
elicit primarily harsh and uniform condemnation. In some circles, such talk
amounted to nothing less than a shamelessly proposed "aggression.” Other
critics, although somewhat more charitable in their particular denunciations,
still expressed guarded sentiments that any Israeli or American defensive
first-strikes against Iran would be "premature.”

Well yes, that’s true. Until George W. Bush made
preemption a method by which he personally saw fit to solve the problems of the
world, it was universally abhorred. In the place of preemption, the United
States has itself taken the gold medal of abhorrence out of the hands of
preemption and hung it around its national neck.

finally, several authoritative figures are speaking plainly about the stark
choices still open to Israel: preemption or apocalypse. Early in July, Meir
Amit, a former director of Mossad, spoke unambiguously of Israel's imperative
to use military force against Iran. Nothing else, said Amit, could any longer
stop Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons. In the best of all possible worlds,
the United States would already have stepped up to the plate in the matter of
Iran, but - for a variety of both political and geostrategic reasons - this did
not happen.

Sorry ‘bout that Louie, I know you’re disappointed.
Your definition of ‘the best of all
possible worlds’
no doubt comes closer to that of the former director of
Mossad. You neglect to mention that Amit held that esteemed position for a mere
five years (63-68) and that was forty years ago. Eighty-seven now, Amit was a
member of Haganah, a terrorist organization in its own right.

A Haganah specialty was the Special Night Squads. Now there’s
a name that ought to chill your blood. According to Israeli
military historian Martin van Creveld their training included "... how to kill without compunction,
how to interrogate prisoners by shooting every tenth man to make the rest talk;
and how to deter future terrorists by pushing the heads of captured ones into
pools of oil and then freeing them to tell the story."
This guy is one
of your ‘authoritative figures?’ Amit’s
precursor to waterboarding—oilboarding.

Prior to the Iranian Revolution of 1978–79 in Iran, SAVAK (Organization of
National Security and Information), the Iranian secret police and intelligence
service was created under the guidance of United States and Israeli
intelligence officers in 1957 to protect the regime of the shah by arresting,
torturing, and executing the dissidents (especially Leftists). After security
relations between the United States and Iran grew more distant in the early
1960s which led the CIA training team to leave persia, Mossad became
increasingly active in Iran, training SAVAK personnel and carry­ing out a broad
variety of joint operations with SAVAK.

SAVAK--Shah of Iran--Mossad increasingly
in Amit’s 60s directorship--coincidence after coincidence. Meir Amit maybe have a few old scores to
settle from those days or does he, as one of several authoritative sources have (in this case) clean hands?

Iran has been around this particular neighborhood in
the Middle East for over 6,000 years. Jews trace their ancestral claim to the
area on the Old Testament. The ancestry of ancient Persia had already been
for forty centuries. Forty
, Louie.

Once again, Israel stands alone in the world.

That’s a bit melodramatic, Louie. If ever there was a nation that stood on
other nations’ legs, it is modern Israel. This America that you would so
quickly engulf in nuclear war, this nation that you would so easily throw away
in your petulant, foot-stamping tantrum, has done more to sustain Israel than
any other nation on earth. Stand alone. That’s
a childish statement on the face of it.

Israel has sown, for eight decades, the seeds of
misery, intransigence, terrorism, selfishness and an utter disregard for the
people upon whose land it exists. Palestine, had Israel not made of it the
scullery-maid for its kitchens, might today find itself proud, wealthy and an
accepting neighbor to those who took its lands.

Just as America has destroyed
and held hostage its native population, so has Israel fallen short of humanity. With no more excuse.

The matter of Iranian nuclear weapons is not a matter of international
"equity.” Israel is not Iran. Israel does not declare itself at war with
Iran, or even with any Arab state. From the beginning, Israel has sought only

holds nuclear weapons quietly, unthreateningly, without bravado - and then only
to prevent its own catastrophic destruction by altogether likely enemy state
aggressions. It is entirely unimaginable that Israel would ever resort to such
weapons as an initial move of war. A nuclear Iran, however, would at some point
consider atomic first-strike attacks upon Israel with expressly genocidal

Peaceful little move into Lebanon, I guess. Peaceful
bulldozing and bombing of Palestinian targets—so peaceful that Israel had on
its hands a refusal of duty by Israeli pilots, unwilling to further destroy
civilian targets. How do you possibly know (and state as fact) Iran’s at-some-point considerations?

You are a selective historian, Louie, a cherry-picker of
fact (and fiction) as well as an extremely dangerous loose-cannon of self
serving opinion at a time when the world is stretched to its breaking point.

We Jews are a covenant people, and also an eternal people. We cannot be
destroyed, but the Jewish State does have existential vulnerabilities, and we
do have an unending obligation to do whatever is necessary to stay alive. The
Jewish State must provide the already-ingathered portion of Jews with both
ordinary and extraordinary protections. This is not a negotiable expectation.

Striding across the world stage as those holding a
covenant with God, claiming the inevitability of your victory over neighbors
and taking to yourselves both ordinary and extraordinary protections that are
not negotiable, is a poor way to negotiate. You have outlined your madman best
of all possible worlds and it includes the destruction of a society twice the
age of your own, killing countless thousands of peaceful Iranians and subjugating
the rest to an as yet unknown type of Israeli servitude.

All this from a nation founded on ‘never again.’ I include a link to the full
of your demagogy in The Jewish Press, in order that I not stand
accused of quoting you falsely or out of context. But I digress . . .

. . . there is
no appropriate context for your blood thirst.
