When Evangelical Christians preach that radical Islam is evil, we, they 'civilized world' get a bit queasy. See a recent article on this in Ha'aretz... http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/pages/ShArtVty.jhtml?sw=robertson&itemNo=693718 But the fact that it's the loonies warning us, shouldn't stop of from taking the other loonies extremely seriously, the Iranian leadership is not known for its humour, nor for its valuing human life - so they probably are trying to fulfill their mission. Whom can we trust to back up the acknowledgement that they're 'for real' with action. Will Russia's appeasement (the Molotov-Teheran pact) work this time? Is France's heroics going to save the day? Will Germany prevent disaster?
