Shavit disagrees. So do other Israeli hawks. At issue is will belligerent rhetoric become policy?
On the Progressive Radio News Hour, Peter Eyre said attacking Iran assures striking Dimona and other Israeli nuclear sites in response. Imagine irradiating an entire country and much of surrounding ones.
On August 10, Haaretz contributor Amir Oren expressed the same concern. On the one hand, he worries about Iran becoming nuclearized. On the other, he asks what to do in the meantime, and what about consequences.
Attacking Iran “endanger(s) Dimona.” Have Israeli officials discussed it, he asked? Do “cabinet ministers understand the consequences?” Will they go along with what may prove disastrous?
Will they act despite no existential threat? Will Haaretz writers say so? Will responsible editorial policy condemn what’s vital to prevent before it’s too late to act?
