At 8:58 P.M. on Tuesday, Israel's 2012 war against Iran came to a quiet end. The capricious plans for a huge aerial attack were returned to the deep recesses of safes and hearts. The war may not have been canceled but it has certainly been postponed. For a while, at least, we can sound the all clear: It won't happen this year. Until further notice, Israel Air Force Flight 007 will not be taking off.

According to a war simulation conducted by the U.S. Central Command, the Iranians could kill 200 Americans with a single missile response to an Israeli attack. An investigative committee would not spare any admiral or general, minister or president. The meaning of this U.S. scenario is that the blood of these 200 would be on Israel's hands.

The moment the public dispute over whether to attack Iran is put in those terms, Israel has no real option to attack in contravention of American declarations and warnings.

Does that mean that if the Israelis don't attack Iran at Obama's behest, and the Iranians develop nuclear weapons and take out Tel Aviv, Haifa, Jersusalem and the rest of Israel, the blood of six-million Jews will be on our hands?

That is a good question. Luckily, you don't think the not-Jews count so that's a relief.

If it's a good question, then answer it, instead of dodging it and implying that I'm a bigot, you despicable little fraction of a man.

The only people who really care about the Israeli Arabs, not to mention the Palestinians, are the Israelis and the US. An Iranian bomb would wipe them out, too, but Iran is indifferent to that because they will be martyrs. The various other players in the Middle East have had ample opportunity to assimilate Palestinians into their countries (which ought to be easy, as there was no such thing as a Palestinian until the identity was created by the Arabs for propaganda purposes), but kept them in camps in order to foment hate. When those camps were overrun, they suddenly became an oppressed people, but the regimes that oppressed them were their own kinsmen.
