    The pressure for armageddon is building. this israeli announcement is precipitating violence both from the standpoint of whether it does or does not build in east jerusalem. if they dont build, the arabs sense weakness and use it as a pretext to step up attacks. if they do build, the arab outrage stimulates attacks. This mistake is but one small fracture leading up to war with Iran. this is starting to look like an unavoidable war. Israel cannot tolerate an Iran with Nukes, the USA doesnt want Israel to start a Nuclear war, nor does Europe because the oil refining capacity in Iran will be destroyed, sabotaged like in Iraq. The person who released this report on Bidens trip is a traitor to peace as much as the man who assasinated Yitzhak Rabin. Or is he a hero? what kind of peace would rabins peace yield? A peace that leads to more peace or a peace that leads to more war? Who can know? Diplomacy was never more important than right this minute. Mabye mutually assured destruction isneeded
