    Mr Pedhazur's logic is so crystal-clear, that the mind is staggered at the thought of the continuing, exorbitant folly of the continued deveopment of the Arrow anti-missile 'defence' system. 1. No power in the world has ever been able to provide a full-proof guarantee to its citizens that not a single enemy ballistic missile would get through. 2. No power can now guarantee that not a single Iranian nuclear bomb would get through to Tel Aviv. Should the Iranians launch a nuclear strike, hundreds, may be thousands of missiles would be fired at Israel, most of which would be dummies, which the Arrow would be unable to distinguish from the real, nuclear 'thing'. 3. On the assumption of the Iranians' (even the fundamentalists') desire for survival - the only possible strategy for Israel is that which kept the Americans and Soviets at bay - M.A.D. - Mutually Assured Destruction. Teheran would be hostage to Tel Aviv, and vice-versa.
