    Mr. Cohen's essay could have been written by an Iranian commentator, which is quite sad. It is just as sad to see Ha'aretz publish it. Israel has never threatened to wipe Iran off the map, just as it never denied the assassination of Alī ibn Abī Ṭālib in the mosque of Kufa - the cause of the split off of the Shiites. But the Iranians deny the Holocaust as well as most of biblical history. I assume that Mr. Cohen believes that we must take decisive measures, as costly they might be, to avoid man made catastrophic global warming. The probability of a climatic catastrophe is much, much smaller that an Iranian devastating nuclear attack of Israel. Therefore, Israel is fully justified to take decisive action to prevent it at any cost.
