Upon reading these statements, the question must be asked: Are American leaders also messianic thinkers? Do Obama and Romney share Netanyahu’s messianic drive to attack Iran?
Forget Medicare and farm subsidies. America needs to have a debate about the consequences of attacking Iran and standing beside the messianic leadership in Israel.
On April 30, 2012, Winston P. Nagan, the “Sam T. Dell Research Scholar Professor of Law, Trustee of the World Academy of Art and Science and a fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts,” wrote in his article, “Messianic Hysteria and the Drumbeat of the Gods of War: Netanyahu v. Khomeini”:
“It will be obvious that the messianic leadership in Israel today is leading Israel in a direction that is the opposite of where it ought to be. It would be vitally important that American interest groups not be seen to aid and abet in this direction, which points only to negative consequences. The American Jewish community has been given an important signal, and it is time that their voices be heard as voices of moderation, and rational restraint rather than voices of intolerant and delusional fantasy.”
Hopefully, sanity will prevail and USrael won’t attack Iran.
