    The most significant line in the article is: "If Netanyahu does get his military moment in the Iranian sun, then expect Israel’s lurch towards self-destruction to accelerate and the dictionary definition of ‘pyrrhic victory’ to be updated." Netanyahu and the Israeli Right have been identified as Religious Extremist's of a serious Security Risk to everyone. That's what you get when you combine Messianism in the Rabbinate with a thinly veiled War of Conquest and Nuclear Bombs in a Community with a Bible about Apocalyptic End Time Destrouction. It's not complicated. It's not hard to learn about or know. Israel is still a close ally of the United States. I'm just not sure if the Knesset is an Ally of Israel anymore.
