    The Rattling of the Sabre needs to be stopped forcefully. Ah- MAD- inajad seems to be hitting all the rawest nerves of the Jews namely the holocaust as a myth, and the legitimacy of Israel as a safehaven and historical homeland for Jews to exist. Israel neds to undertake a high profile international campaign to highlight the very severe danger of the Iranian regime and the president. It also has to speed up the IAEA referral to the UN Security Council of Iran in its attempts to acquire Nuclear Weapons which is the road to possible mutually assured destruction of the middle east if not stopped in its tracks. TheCountries asisting Iran its its acquisition of Nuclear weapons nneed to be made to withdraw cooperation in all mattters nuclear until Iran withdraws its threats to the existence of a sovereign member of the United Nations which might mean expulsion of Iran from the UN and oither sanctions. It may not be 1933 or the Cuban missile crisis yet, but complacecy cannot be the answer. Israel meanwhile should move KADIMA with its relationships with reasonable Arab and international Muslim states and representative governments.
