    self-destruction by launching an attack on Israel with nuclear weapons needs to be examined rationally and intelligently. Does anyone except the rabid anti-Islamic hysterics believe that they are going to commit national suicide in order to bring on the apocalypse? You'd better have a great deal more evidence than what's been reported to support that position. A nuclear attack on Israel would most likely destroy the third holiest site in all of Islam, the Dome of the Rock. Does anyone have intelligence that this is acceptable? Millions of Muslims would be killed and the Holy Land uninhabitable for decades, what would be the point in that? Balance that against what is clear, that Israel would be retaliated against where possible by Shia and Sunni Muslims alike and the world wide economic damage due to disruptions in the oil supply or perceived disruptions due to war in the Middle East and Persian gulf. Those in Israel who are trying to prepare their people for this action by saying that Iran really could to much in return, that Israel would only have a couple of bad weeks must be smoking some great Lebanese hash. If the population of Israel is expected to go along with this hysteria fomenting, then more damage will be done to Jews and the Jewish cause than can be imagined. Why don't you stop and think?
