The UN has eyes WIDE closed re the above. Here is a rather good insight by Rich Lowry..
“In March 1945, Adolf Hitler gave his infamous Nero Decree, essentially calling for the destruction of Germany. After the first U.S. atomic attack on Hiroshima, the Japanese war minister mused about how wonderful it would be if his nation were destroyed “like a beautiful flower.” It is in this tradition that former Iranian president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani — a relative pragmatist — said that “even one nuclear bomb inside Israel will destroy everything. However, it will only harm the Islamic world. It is not irrational to contemplate such an eventuality.”
The danger that Iran represents is there for all to see. Rich is right in suggesting that Iran will behave rationally but it’s rationality is steeped in cataclysmic fanaticism.
