Solving Iran is priority No. 1

By May 28, 2011

Dashiel Menard writes to say that I have exaggerated by comparing Palestine to Nazi Germany. I am surprised that someone with a French name would have such a narrow view of reality.

Palestine alone is a minor player in the Middle East but it is the wedge, financed and supported by Iran, for attacking Israel. When examined along with Iran’s other satraps, Hezbollah and Hamas, we get a clearer picture of what is happening.

Iran is the real equivalent of Nazi Germany today and is the hand moving its puppets at will. Iran is the deadliest enemy of Israel, as Premier Benjamin Netanyahu told Congress the other day, and is equally our self pronounced enemy.

When French Premier Edouard Deladier came home from Munich in 1938, he was met by approving crowds. He commented to his aide, “Ah, les cons (fools).” My thought is the same for our president and the other “cons” who today do not grasp the real Palestine problem.

We should be putting substantially greater effort into the Iran situation, as Palestine can never be solved until Iran is solved.
