Why Israelis are afraid - very afraid

Blogpal and Joshua's Army member Canker ( check out his superb site for first hand accounts fromthe UK) was kind enough to the following along, an article by Israeli writers Michael Oren and Yossi Klein Halevi on why Israelis are afraid—very afraid of a nuclear Iran.

I'm not a huge fan of the authors, both of whom are involved in playing `catch-up' because of their long advocacy of concessions to Israel's enemies. Better late than never, I suppose.

While regular members of Joshua's Army will already be aware of most of this information -and indeed, quite a bit more - this is a neat capsulization of the threat hanging over Israel's head.

As the authors put it, Israelis recall how the international community reacted with indifference once before as a massively armed nation declared war against the Jewish people — and they sense a similar pattern today.
