A January Jerusalem Report survey showed Israelis mostly fear themselves. Around 60% said their greatest future fear's internal. About 40% worry most about destruction from an outside enemy.
Before Israel's 1948 creation, minority Jews and majority Arabs coexisted peacefully in Palestine. After Israel's War of Independence, that all changed, and more than ever now under Israel's most extremist ever prime minister and Knesset.
They govern more like sociopaths, than leaders. They deplore peace and crave violence. Others also did before them, short of threatening the entire region with potential annihilation if Netanyahu attacks Iran.
Whether his game's more bluster than bombs away isn't known. What's clear is that Israel and Washington both intend regime change by any means, including war. Imagine the potential catastrophe if they follow through and wage one, especially with nuclear weapons.
Doing so means all bets are off. The worst of all outcomes may follow. Regional war may go global. The possibility should rally all Israelis against it. They sit atop a potential time bomb.
Collectively they've got power to defuse it. The reward's too great to ignore, the risk greater than anyone should take. They'll get plenty of regional and worldwide support.
Ordinary people everywhere want peace, not war. Only megalomaniac leaders crave conflicts. It's time to take them on and remove them, most of all in Washington. Humanity depends of it. There may be little time left.
