    "We are taking upon ourselves a task that is bigger than us... the State of Israel should not ? be the flag-bearer of the entire Western world in the face of the Iranian threat." And, he reminds we with strong opinions on such matters, "I'm not some passer-by ... I've filled a few positions that give me a different level of information to the average person." Two successive American presidents have sought to set Israel up as the military bite to the feeble US sanctions bark. By invading Iraq the US set the stage for the Iranian threat. The cleanup job is not for Israel, but for the US. Yes, as the US constantly reminds the world, Iran is an *existential threat for Israel.* But an even greater threat is isolation by the entire world for causing the oil to stop flowing, for tipping the world from the Bush Great Recession into, if Israel agrees to the American script for her, the Israel Great Depression. Israel is not Americas stooge. Dont agree to be her shaheed!
