Shin Bet apparently tracked the package after wondering at an enormous quantity of salt ordered by a Gaza importer with Hamas ties.18:10 03.05.16 | 0 comments
since totalitarians do not depend for their power on democratic elections, they can, and usually do, as they please. the examples are too numerous to list. stalin refused to exchange his own son and sent all returning pow's to the gulag. hitler continued to fight even when it was obvious that he could not win. imperial japan continued to fight after the first atomic bomb was dropped. pol pot killed two million of his own people and devastated his entire country while so doing. iran has engaged in many irrational acts: blowing up marines and french paratroopers in lebanon without regard to a possible retaliation by much more powerful countries. all of iran's acts of terror have been irrational since they were not necessary for national security purposes. the continuous open threat to wipe out israel, a member state of the united nations, is irrational since it invites war. iran has been living with the idea that others will never retaliate, an irrational idea.
