    note to meir, while you are right that the price for taking down irans nuclear program will be heavy, the price for not doing so is heavier. Do you want to wait until hezbollah has 200,000 rockets? should you wait until hamas has chemical missiles? should you wait while iran finishes their nuclear weapons program? eventually, all of these adversaries will have to be fought, and it likely will be a multifront war, so logically, is it not better to deal with it now and crush their abilities now rather than wait for when they are stronger later? It makes NO sense to wait. I understand the global implications, oil prices, people blaming israel...but that will always be the case, even if you wait to fight this war later people will still blame israel and the jews. Its just the way it is....perhaps some will understand that despite high oil prices, this was iran's fault and this was the international communities fault for allowing iran to even get this far. lastly, as I have argued before, this will ultimately be Obama's fault...his legacy...his 3am call he never answered. He PLEDGED in his 08' campaign to never allow iran to get nukes, and since then, he;s either been quiet about his PLEDGE or he's been trying to move the discussion to either containment, nuclear umbrellas and shields, or nuclear free zones...ALL OF WHICH are ridiculous when dealing with fanatics like iran. The time is now not later.

Why this liberal Zionist now supports BDS

Calling the occupation 'unsustainable' is how liberal Zionists ease their conscience and excuse their timidity, by telling themselves it can’t last. But it will last – unless we start acting more like radicals.
