Many experts on radical Islam are of the same opinion as Lewis on Iran's potential use of a nuclear weapon against Israel or the US. There is no doubt whatsoever that no matter how many fellow Muslims would die as a result of any nuclear attack or retaliatory attack, they would die as martyrs to Islam so there is no deterrent factor in the equasion. Iranians died in by hundreds of thousands and killed hundreds of thousands of Muslims in the war with Iraq and Muslims regularly murder each other all over the world without compunction. These killings are always justified by the radicals in Koranic readings and the will of Allah...Why would causing a nuclear holocaust be any different? The west cannot take that chance.
